Or any Disease tc7iere the Throat ond Dungs
are Inflatncd, Tacit of Strength or Kcrvo
Voiccr, yon can ho relieved and Cured by
at present. A perfect mania for
monej seems to pervade all circles,
all classes, all ranks of meD. In
deed so widespread has become
this madness that the acquisition
of money seems to be the chief
aim of well nigh all. The time
was, in the memory of many of ns,
when an American millionaire was
an unheard of being. But how is
it to-day ? They dot well nigh every
large city. Out of this universal
grasping after, and greed for,
money are forming great money
centers, through which masterly
fortunes are flowing into the hands
of some, while poverty among the
working classes is becoming more
widespread. This vast accumula
tion of money in the hands of a
few is creating a thirst for it among
all, and hence the mania continues
to grow. Not only so but is rapidly
passing the legislation of the coun
try under money control. So po
tent has become this fact that it is
openly charged that the American
congress is so completely under the
money mania as to be ready to nod
to the beck and call of tbe mon
eyed powers. As evidence of the
truth of snch charges, so soon as a
bill makes its appearance before
our legislative bodies from which
can be sifted the most remote pro
vision that would restrain the
money powers, a swarm of lobby
ists pour in upon onr law makers
with all the monied influence that
is possible to be brought. On tbe
other hand when a bill nppears
that caters to the interest of the
money kings, money is pnt behind
it, and it pushed to final passage.
Thus it is that the government is
falling into the hands of the money
powers which have grown to be
such from the mania for money
that prevails everywhere. In this
way a channel of corruption is
being dug deep enough and wide
enough to destroy the grandest
;overnment that ever flourished in
the annals of time.
Furthermore, the working peo
ple of this country, by permitting
themselves to become ' infatuated
with this madness for money, are
reaping harm instead of benefits
thereby. They make the mistake
of makiug money their cheif aim
and putting forth all their efforts
to obtain it. For in this way they
fail of those ordinary comforts that
tend to make life pleasant and
happy. • Nurturing their hopes and
ambition for money upon the suc
cesses of the few who attain to for
tune, they are constantly planing
and striving for it, and leaving all
things else ont of consideration,
forgetting the fact that there is not
money enough to make all people
So prevalent and deep seated
has become this craze for money,
that even the little children have
become infected with it Every
school boy is plotting and mapping
ont some plan whereby he can
make money, instead of applying
his mental powers to the acquisi
tion of that knowledge that will be
of benefit to him in after years.
This universal craze for money
and hasty riches is working harm
to all classes. It is not only work
ing corruption in legislation, but
it is producing an increase crop of
absconding cashiers, and flooding
the country with defaulting ac
countants, bankrupts and- thieves.
And unless a remedy be applied
what will the end be?
Now if we, as a people will divest
ourselves of this money mania, and
apply our minds and efforts to the
acquisition of the ordinary com
forts of life, and learn therewith to
be content, the needed money will
come to us as a natural sequence.
This proposition, however, it' is
difficult to impress those who have
and will have nothing but money
on the brain. But there are some
men here and there who are dem
onstrating its truth and they are
tbe happiest and most contented
class in this country.

cotton planter in the union. He
has solved the cotton bagging
problem that has been a sore con
tention with the southern cotton
planter. Mr.- Jackson will furnish
a covering for cotton made from
the cotton stalk, thus verifying the
prediction of Edward Atkinson
that every part of the cotton plant
would be used. The cotton plant
ers have been so bitter against the
jute bagging trust that they have
been sending their cotton to mar
ket covered with burlaps and sheet
ing at a net loss of about a dollar
The alliance men are jubilant.
By the making of bagging of the
cotton stalk it is estimated that
about three million dollars are pnt
in the planters’ pockets, and the
gross savings to the country are
about three million dollars. The
stalks have been a nuisance in the
field, and much labor is required
to remove them. Now the planter
will receive about two dollars and
a half a ton for them delivered at
the depots. The annn&l cotton
crop produces stalks enough to
bale three yearly crops.
Mr. Jackson has been working
for months with the idea of discov
ering a fibre that for bagging would
compare with the jute article. This,
by treatment in his machine, he
discovered most appropriately in
the stalk of the cotton plant. The
stalk is cut and housed when ma
ture. It is run through corruga
ted rollers under heavy pressure,
with an eccentric attachment.
Water is all the while carrying off
the foul residue of gum, pulp. and
skin. Carding machines then pre
pare the yarn for the weaving ma
chine, and Mr. Jackson, keeping
his labors a secret, worked until he
had a sufficient quantity, and then
went north to experiment on tbe
looms at the jute bagging factory
of J. C. Todd, in Trenton, N. J.
That gentleman assisted him and
for three days they worked. The
result is a roll of bagging that it
puzzles experts to detect among
the jute rolls. One of the mem
bers of the exporting cotton house
of Doughty & Co. says it would
not be pronounced other than jute
bagging by one man in hundreds.
It is proven to be uninflammable.
Mr. Todd, an expert in bagging,
says it is all the southern planter
could desire in bagging. The jnte
people have eyed askance the new
candidate. It is a shade darker,
but will not stain cotton. It runs
about two and one-quarter pounds
to the yard, but can be made light
er. Seven and eight yards are re
quired for a bale. Mr. Jackson
was not satisfied to trnst to senti
ment in giving his product to the
market. Only when he had dem
onstrated that he could make bag
ging at seven and one-half cents a
yard, less than which jnte people
lose money, would lie go into the
enterprise. This he can do. He
will make Augusta his general
headquarters for the offices and
factories of the new company,

tory, with fibre machines scattered
