(lY LADY COOK, llf‘o TENNESSEE
The men who have been beet
able to judge have had least faith
in the general wisdom of the
human race, and have not hesitat
ed to assert that, in spite of that
progress which the world owes to
the comparatively few, the major
ity of mankind are fools. How
ever exaggerated this opinion may
a close examination of
! facts and of human procedure
gives it, a remarkable colouring of
truth. For if, on the whole, we
‘throw away substantial things to
pursue shadows, we must confess
jthasweare indeed guilty of the
wildest folly. We may Hatter
ourselves and each other, and
cooker ourselves up with the vain
idea that our errors are right, hut
all t liisps a peculiar and distinctive
feature of fools. The word is de
rived from the Latin follis, a
windbag or a pair of bellows.
Hence the fool is not necessarily
ignorant, but is unwise; is puffed
with false notions and blown out
with self-conceit. He sees things
I not as they are, but as he would
wish them to be. He shuts his
eyes to verities and adores false
hoods. He ignores the lessons of
the past or misapplies them. And
it is easier to cast a mountain into
the sea than to remove the small
est of liis prejudices. “Take care,”
said Wolsey of Henry VIII.,
“what you put into the King’s
head; for von can never put it out
Carlyle, after enumerating the
people of these islands, added
“mostly fools.” Hut it may be
objected. He was dyspeptic. Ra
belais, however, one of the most
genial of men, classified to less
than three hundred species of the
genus, from the solemn to the fan
tastical fool, among his own coun
trymen. Kind David said, “All
men are liars,” which is equiva
lent to saying lliat they are all
fools; and Avicenna, after the
widest experience as a physician,
assorted that all men are mad on
some point or another. “All our
action,” said I*l iny to Trajan,
“upbraid us of folly.” Horace
asks, “Who is not brain-sick?”
And an old paradox of the Stoics
was omnes stultos insanire —all fools
are mad; “though,” as old bur
ton observes, “some madder than
others.” Democritus held that
there was little or no difference
between mankind and boasts,
except that the former could speak.
Socrates was esteemed the wisest
man of his time, affirmed to bo so
by an oracle of Apollo, and indeed,
such as none before or after can
approach—not taught hut born
‘‘Whose wit excelled the wit of men as far
As the sun rising doth obscure a star.”
Yet has lie been considered by
many great men as an illiterate
I though inspired idiot, and we are
i told that besides his other follies,
he was “a sodomite and a sturdy
drinker: and that of all others he
was most sottish, a very madman
in his actions and opinions.” So
that the private conduct of the
best and wisest lias never squared
with their public opinions. “Their
lives being opposite to their words
they commended poverty to others
and were most covetous them
selves; extolled love and peace,
and yet persecuted one another
with violent hate and malice—
They could give precepts for verse
and prose, but not a man of them
could moderate his affections.”
Thus Socrates, after taking great
pains to find out a wise man con
eluded all were fools. And another
philosopher is supposed to have
“travelled all over Europe to con
fer with a wise man—and could
find none.” On the other hand,
it has been said:
"And they can call you fool, with equal claim
May plead an anisic title to the name.”
Lucian, in Ins dialogues, made
Mercury conduct Charon to a
spot where In* could view the world
at once, and asked him what he
saw. He replied that “he could
discern cities like so many hives
of hoes, wherein every bee had a
sting, and they did nought else
but st ing one another, some domi
neering like hornets bigger than
the rest, some like filching wasps,
others as drones.” Hope, fear,
anger, ignorance, hovered in a
confused cloud over their heads.

wore brawling, some lighting, rill

and trilles, and such momentary
things. Their towns and provinces

nobles, and so the rest.” “O j
fools! O madmen!” he exclaimed, j
insana studio, Insani labores.
Montaigne says: “Folly and.
absurdity are not to be cured by
bare admonition—Obstinacy of

opinion, and heat in argument are
surest proofs of folly. Is there
anything so assured, resolute, dis
dainful, contemplative, serious,
and grave as an ass?” We are
warned, —“answer not a fool ac
cording to his folly lest thou be
like unto him.” Nevertheless,
we may note and check the follies
of others, even though we be blind
to our own. They can do the
same for us, and thus mutual ad
vantage may arise. For few are
so foolish us not to be able to per
ceive palpable folly in others,
although subtle examples may go
unnoticed. Even the blind may
see. Demoritus put out his eyes,
it is said, that he might observe
the better, and thus saw more
than all Greece together.
To enumerate the follies of
mankind would exceed the labours
of Hercules; to cure them seems
well nigh impossible. Ignorance, j
error, superstition, lust, avarice, i
vanity, and vain desires are ever
actively at work to oppose what
ever is noble and wise. Insensate 1
Ignorance stands as a wall of
adamant barring the path of
human progress. Error, profess
ing to guide, leads by crooked and
devious ways to destruction. Su
perstition feeds the hungry soul
with ashes, misleads with fruitless
hopes, and nourishes intolerance
and cruelty. Lust drives its vic
tims whither it will, obscuring
reason and urging the madness.
Avarice withers heart and brain
and soul leaving nothing but the
empty husk and shell of a man.
Vanity transforms good to evil,
varnishes sin, and puffs with self
conceit. And a host of vain de
sires, like a legion of devils, enters
into the springs of our being and
tempts us to every eonceivale ab
If wisdom wont with antiquity
the world would be wise, but old
age seems only capable of develop
ing new follies. The rich have
discovered thousands of fresh ways
of making money, but have not
yet learnt the best mode of enjoy
ing it. Those who make most
enjoy it least. The poor have
multiplied their avocations a hun
dred-fold and yet complain that
they are worse off than ever. Men
of all conditions are fed with soph
istries as though they were divine,
truths, and prefer the artificial to
the natural. Discontent rages
from the cottage to the palace.
Greed besots nations and individ
uals alike. How then can they be
wise when to be miserable is to be
Happiness and wisdom are con
vertible terms. He who is wise is
happy; he who is happy is wise.
A stout heart is dismayed by no
dangers. A contented man is a
perpetual feast. As Cato told his
weary soldiers in the Lybian des
erts : “Thirst, heat, sand, serpents,
are pleasant to a viliant man.”
Chrysostom said : “To want noth
ing is godlike.” Happiness is
found not by increasing our pos
sesions but by moderating our
desires. When Darius fled from
Alexander he drank from a way
side puddle and swore that it was
pleasanter than any royal wine or
mead. “Hunger,” we are told,
I “is the best sauce,” and it is cer
tain labour gives a zest which in
dolence never yields. Thus one
may be as happy on little as on
much, so that it is sufficient, and
he who can be this on least is the
wisest of all. For he who rules
himself is greater and happier
than a king.
To keep within the bounds of
nature is the surest and shortest
road to content. To search out
and venerate her laws is divinest
wisdom. The Great Mother is
bountiful to her obedient children
and showers her blessings with a
loving and liberal hand. In her
we live and move and have our
being, and should therefore do her
worship. But led astray by our
follies, we seek to supersede her.
We despise her admonitions and
despose her from our hearts. We
neglect Jier chastenigs, and follow
foolish devices, and the result is
misery, crime, want, disease, and
the debasement of humanity.
Must the cycles of the future
ever run as those of the past?
Will wrongs never be righted,
worth never be esteemed, and
force always triumph over justice?
Surely not, unless there is some
predestined and irremoveable flaw
in human nature which no power
and no experience can alleviate
To believe this would be treason
to the eternal wisdom. It may
be, however, that the reign of
folly has not yet culminated: that
men must first pass through fur
ther stress and the nations be
bathed in blood before they can
be purified. Whatever the process
and however painful, let us hold
on to unwavering belief in the
“good time coming,” and hasten
it, so far as we can, by exposing
the follies of fools and correcting

The political pot will soon begin

Terell and Estill have planted

Terrell, no doubt, from his being
attorney general of the state so
long, has put him in the lead in
Middle and North Georgia. But
I think, Estill can overcome said
advantages by the indelible scars
on his person, while battling for
the last but glorious cause of the
Confederacy. I have ever made
it apart of my religion where there
are two contending candidates for
the same office one a Confederate
soldier and the other not, yet both
possessing equal capacity, I inva
ribly give my franchise in favor
of the Confederate soldier, who like
our Saviour, offered up his life, on
the alter of his country, as a sac
rifice, for our redemption. I am
in hopes this sentiment will be
perpetuated to the one hundred

Col. A. A. Murphey has an
nounced himself a candidate for
the next representative in the Leg
islature. I have known him since
he was quite a youth. He descend
ed from one of the best and
noblest families of Georgia. He
has the advantage over many, of
being a graduate in a literary and
law schhool. He is a fine lawyer,
a gifted speecher, has a large well
cultivated brain. Moreover, lie is
ambitious and fearless, coupled
with an indominitable push, will
and backbone to carry into effect
any measure he engages. I think
the people of Pike county would
be proud of Such an able talent in
next legislature of Georgia.
