Oct 22.1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 C \ t t Melitotus. eli shepperd. Since the appearance of au arti- cle of mine on "Melitotus" in Home and Farm, of Louisville, Ky., many letters of inquiry con- cerning the plant have reached me from diverse parts of the union. So many of these letteis, however, have come to me from the Lone Star state, that I have thought that a short practical paper on the plant, and how to sow, and where to sow, might be acceptable to the many readers of Texas' greatest paper, The Mercury. First, the melitotus is one of the clover tribe. It grows best on lime lands. On our lime lands, indeed out of the white, bald-head itself, this giant clover «springs and often reaches an height of ten or or more feet. The plant is beautiful. The stem •is tall and very branching, its foli- age delicate and three-toothed, and is finely odored—being like that of vanilla. Its blossoms are tiny staffs ot white blooms, which are very fragrant, and from which the bees gather a supply ...

Then and Now. L. C. BATEMAN, IN NAT. ADVOCATE. During the middle ages it was the custom of the feudal barons to surround themselves with an armed b&ftl of retainers, and then pillage All travellers who pass their way. Each feudal lord had his castles on the si mmit of some lofty crag, and fortunate indeed was the wayfarer who escaped being imprisoned with- in its deep and reeking dungeons. The river Rhine, in Germany, is to-day lined with the crumbling ruins of these relics of a darker age each one of which has its own wild legends, and traditions of the bloody deeds witnessed in ages past. Human nature is essentially the same in every age and every clime No longer do we have armored knights shouting, 4 'stand and de- liver," but the same spirit exists in ether and even more dangero...

Modern plutocracy, like feudal despotism, must at last go down ijito a dishonored grave unwej. honored and unsung. How Shall it be Settled? j. E. taylor. In The Mercury of October 8th is an article entitled ''Bossism Ex- emplified." The statements there- in contained must not and should not pass unnoticed. What are the facts set forth? The demo- cratic executive committee of Dal- las county met and passed resolu- lutions declaring tbe sub-treasury plan undemocratic and. requesting "any member who advocated said plan to resign." There was only one Alliance member present, Bro. W. R. Cole; he, very properly, at once resigned. The resolutions fhad passed by a vote of 9 to 3. Bro.

Oct 29.1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 What is the Matter. ISAAC B. REAMS. I read in the partisan political papers, that there is plenty of money in circulation; that there is more money in use now than there ever was before; that the farmers have raised large crops, and are prosperous and happy; that they are paying off their mortgages and getting out of debt; that they are becoming an independent people, as a class, once more, and will be able to get a new suit all around this fall, and the whole lamily can go to church together once more that the Alliance demands are now entirely nonessential, as there is or will be in a short time, more money in circulation than there has been for many years; that the free coinage oí silver is not neces- sary; that it is only a political Al- liance trick gotten up to divide the democratic party. Now, if these are facts, where is the money? The crops are rather light here. Cotton, which is our moneyed crop, won't average more than one-fourth to one-thi...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct 29, 1891. AN OPEN LETTER. T To Hon. William Henry Grain, Member of Congress from the 7th District. Deau Sib—I have not the pleas- ure of your acquaintance, but I greatly admire you, nevertheless. You have, quite largely, the cour- age of your convictions, and this cannot be said of all public men. Congressmen, particularly, are given to the habit of "holding with the hare and running with the hounds," and if at times they evi- dence an innate elevation of char- acter that revolts at the "rule of the caucus," when levelled against honest conviction they soon alas!—lapse into dull subservien- cy to the political machine, and lei *n that it doesn't pay to give too wide a play to individual con- science. Even the tongue of genius learns, under such constraints, to set itself to the stupid monotone of the campaign hurrah. But the party whips just now do not seem to have much terror for you, seeing that you bodly set yoUrself against the state platform of your party,...

But you might rest your case on the question of the unconstitution- ality of the plan! How wise in you to blink the question in this way! You are a sensible, practical man, and no doubt appreciated the diffi- culty of proving that the govern- ment, being armed with the power to issue money, is left without the correlative power to select the most available mode or agency for its distribution among the people,— the difficulty in fact of proving that while the government may constitutionally authorize national banks to issue promises to pav, based upon and secured by other promises to pay, it cannot by its own direct act, constitutionally emit promises to pay secured by collateral which the civilized world regards as unexceptionable in pri- vate transactions. But the polit- ical world has rung of late with the same charge. Congressmen of all grades, ...

The great shade trees, the bois d'arc fence, the gravelled walks, the shrubs, the vines climbing over the porch and the generous array of roses, petunias and geraniums, all nhow her love for the beautiful.

Yes, lets have a republic in finance, use credit of the government for the whole people, a legal tender money for all debts by the general govern- ment; for money is to commerce and trade, what the blood is to our system. Then corrupt legislation will be at an end. This is what produces corruption (government favors to a few). Give the favors to the whole American people at one whoop, by giving us honest money that costs no interest. In- terest is not legitimate in a free re poblic. No, sir! it is not! Then this capital will go into legitimate business developing the resources of our common country. Not Surprised. The Alliance sub-treasury sys- tem has shocked the Wall street money kings and their allies, the national bankers and usurers, as they were never shocked before Evidence in every direction is pil- ing up that large contributions have been made by usurers and specu- lators in all se...

Oct. 29. Í39i. SOUTHERN MERCURY. § from our every day and legitimate business, to listen to speeches and harangues, out of which we can not see, or even imagine, any good will ever be accomplished. As we now see, there is nothing on the boards that is in any way calculated to disturb the minds of our citizens, who are actively engaged in trying to solve the problem of life, viz. "peace, plenty and a happiness at home." We can't see the neces- sity now, of troubling ourselves over imaginary evils or issues. We are peaceably pursuing our daily ! avocations, and we don't so under- stand, but that our great and grand government is moving on smoothly. We realize that we, the people, are the government; and that if the government is wrong, we are wrong, since we are a part of the government; and we here enter a strict protest of being "out of joint" in any sense whatever. And we do most solemnly aver that state and national affairs are not dis- turbing us in the least. We are conscious of...

Oct 29,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. IS WE ABE ALIVE DO THE ISSUE. The Harrison administration ex- pects to win the western farmer back into the republican party through reciprocity in hog pro- ducts and cereals. The democratic bosses expect to lure the southern farmers to again become the tail to their political kite, by speaking robber tariff and denouncing the force bill. Next March it will be in order for these self-important bosses to lay down the hatchet, all along the line, resolve themselves into a mu- tual admiration society, and by a united effort down the move of the people to free themselves from the brutal rule of plutocracy. The farmers in the north, south, east and west, and their confed- erates, demand more money, and they will not be side tracked. They know that the relative amount of money in circulation, with «he demand for its use, puts the price on labor's product. They also know that European influence legislated Arr erican money out of existence, created a money fam...

It has its headquarters in Change Al- ley and Lombard street, London, and its branches in Wall street, New York, and at every other great money centre in the civilized world. It is drawing tribute from the four corners of the earth. Usury is the tool it uses to draw the very life blood of nations—the money.
