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 rich. 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. OF PURE COD LIVER OIL With Hypophosphites.

Go mother and do likewise. Do not wait for extraordinary ( opportunities for good actions, but make use of common situations. 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 a bale. 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, though each state will have a fac tory, with fibre machines scattered about to produce and bale the crude material.

It was only with a great deal of difficulty and personal inconve nience to the man that he secured the necessary identification and got his money. This circumstance re calls' another which recently oc curred in one of the St. Paul banks. A man entered with the check of a well known wholesale ‘ firm for §50. “Yon will be obliged to get some one to identify yon,” said the cash ier. “Who shall I get?” inquired the man. “Any one whom yon know.” “1 must get somebody whom you know and who knows me at the same time?” “Yes, that’s it exactly.” “Well, who do you know?” “Me? Oh, I know several hun dred people in the city.” “Do they know me?” “How should I know?” “Well, then, how should I know whom you know? That’s a fair question.’, “Well, I have got no time to waste. The rules of the bank are that yon must be identified before you can cash your check.” “Why so?” “For the bank’s protection.” “Yes, but what protection have I got?” “What do you mean?” “I am the rightful owner of this check. It is endorsed by the party from whom I received it. It is my property, and it calls for your hands which you refuse to give me because you do not move in my circle of society, aud have never enjoyed the honor and pleas ure of my acquaintance. Yery good; I retire without my money, and in the course of the day lose my check. It is found by some one whom you do know; he presents it, drawB my §50 and skips. Is that fail ? What protection does your confounded red tape rule af ford the honest customer of your bank? None at all. This check may be presented by a thief, but if you are personally acquainted with him you are obliged to give him my money. I think at the next national convention of bank ers you would do well to bring this question up, and secure some kind of equitable legislation to protect the holders of checks as well as the banks.’' The man went out directly fol lowing this phillippic, and return ed in ten minutes with a man high financial circles. Thereupon the check was cashed. riage stood at the Fourteenth street entrance of Willard’s hotel awaiting their pleasure. It could not-be supposed that they were in very distressing financial straits. They sat at a table in the recep tion room of Willard’s, devising, concocting, and instituting a tele- egraphic message to some friend. The elder one did the writing and scratching and rewriting, which used np six or seven Western Un ion blanks. The youDger one leaned closely over the scrivener and furnished suggestions at jnst the right time to make the scriven er tear up the blanks. “We will be there to-morrow.” That is what they wanted to say. And that is what they did say in the very first writing. “But,” said the younger, “if we say we are coming home, we shall both have to sign it.” “Carrie and I will be there to morrow.” That was the result of much mental effort spent in composing, and much physical exertion spent in erasing. “I guess that will do,” said the younger, and the two seemed to breathe with that freedom which tells of great responsibilities un shouldered. “Hold on,” said the other at the door. “What?” asked the other. “Carrie and I will be there to morrow. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven—only seven words.” “Well.” “Why, we have to pay as much for seven words as we do for ten.” Here was more difficulty. It would never do to pay for ten words, and send only seven. That would be a reckless and a wicked waste. They proposed many ways to lengthen it, but each time they talked off a new message on their fingers, they found that they had either too few or too many words. “Pshaw!” said the younger one, “why didn’t I think of it before. I have it.” “Have you? Have you?” “Why, of course. -Leave it just as it is and add, ‘Yours, very truly.’” If the young lady had had an inspiration she could not have looked prouder of it; and as for the older one, she simply looked on the sweet face before her as that of a wonderful being. “Carrie and I will be there to morrow. Yours, very truly,” was the message that went through some operator’s hands yesterday afternoon. ; Kcnnnler’s Approaching- Fate. Savannah News, William Kemmler, who is prison at Auburn, N.

This is a step backward. Wise men like Lord Beacon and Black- stone long ago said that it was in judicious to cut off the great body of the people from all hope of ob- toining.a freehold. But the sin gle example of France should be enough. When the feudal system prevailed the French peasantry were ignorant and brutal, and ready at any time for a revolution. With the breaking up of the great estates the-conntry people became imbued with new life, energy and intelligence. Small farms have been the salvation of France. Her common people have risen in the social scale. They sustained the wars of the Napoleonic era, and when the last empire fell went down into their pockets and paid off a burden of debt that would have crushed almost any other na tion. In no country did the own ers of large tracts of land ever con tribute much money for the public welfare as came from the savings of these small farmers of France. The smaller the farms the more industriously and scientifically they are cultivated. Such an en vironment and such conditions make a farmer pnt brains into his work. The civilized world will never go back to Coant Andrassy’s theo ry that the land belongs to the privileged few, and must be tilled almost without the hope of reward by swarms of tenants little above the grade of serfdom. The ten dency henceforth will be to divide plantations into farms, and farms into gardens. The rule will be to put all the intelligent work into the soil that the soil will bear.

While look ing at the ruin the next morning, Matthew Turner, who has charge of the cemetery, spied an object which had fallen from the cloven trunk. Picking it np and cutting away the mass of moss, fongns and earth with which it was coated over, he found that it was a large old-fashioned teapot of solid sil ver. Opening it, he fonnd that it contained the sknll of an infant a few days old, and further investi gation showed the teapot to bear the inscription: “From D. T. to B.
