But for the imposi tion of the enormous tariffs which are: charged upon ..articles import ed into our country, the prices of our manufactures would not only be lower, but the prices of import, ed goods would also be decreased. The outlook indicates tbat-4he tar iff will never be reduced, there fore, in the face of this insur mountable object in the way of our tirade with foreign nations, Mr. Blame’s policy of reciprocal trade comes in the shape of a compro mise, and- will no doubt be exceed ingly beneficial to the mannfactur rers and producers of America. It simply means that where na tions will allow our product and manufactures to enter their ports free of duty, that we will also al low their goods to enter our ports with the same freedom from duty. This will open up to us new ave nues of trade aud a new market for our farm products. For instance, Brazil, which now furnishes 76 per cent, of the coffee used in the United States, and on which coffee there is a very large tariff, also uses large quantities of cotton and woolen goods, machinery and provisions. This reciprocal trade will open up a direct avenue for us iiito the Brazilian markets; and while our coffee trade in the United States would be increased, aud would greatly benefit the Brazilian grow ers, we would be able to ship our cotton and woolen manufactures di rectly into the Brazilian ports free of duty. Brazil now uses §21,000,000 worth of cotton goods per annum. By the reduction of duty most of these goods would be taken* of course, from the United Slates, and the trade would be greatly in creased under the new arrange ment. Under our present policy we purchase $7O,OOO,Q0O from Bra zil, while in return we only send our §8,000,000 worth, and the bal ance against the United States in this transaction is sent to Europe to pay for merchandise which Bra zil buys from European countries. This shows the immense impor tance of the reciprocal policy. We do not wish to be understood as claiming that reciprocity will in any way supplant our demand for tariff reform, but we mean to show iu this article that where we have a trade with other nations which is not strained by our high tariff system that it is greatly beneficial to all parties concerned.

Do you feel weak and mean all over? Have you got the ague? Then why don’t you do something to get well?- You say quinine doesn’t do you any good.' Well, you needn’t let that discourage you. There is one remedy, Smith’s Tonic Syrup, made by Dr. John Ball, of Louisville, Ky., that’s far ahead of quinine. It will cure chills and fever when quinine and everything else fails. This reme dy never has failed. In some neighborhoods where chills and fever are common, it is found' in every household. Why a man would as soon refuse his family food to eat, as to refuse to get an other bottle of Smith’s Tonic Syr up, when the old bottle gave out. It is a great preventive of ague. A single dose will sometimes keep off an attack. A few doseS will break up the fever and cure the chills. It does not leave any un pleasant after effects as quinine sometimes does. It will not harm the most delicate individual Give it a trial, and you will soon be well. Your child is troubled with worms. That’s why he is so peev ish. Give it Dr. Bull’s WorrvDe- stroyers. They taste good and will make him healthy. That better schools are demanded, especially in the rural districts, is almost a universally conceded fact. Nothing short of good schools, for ten scholastic months in each year, accessible to the people will do the growing children of the state jus tice. Furthermore anything short of first-class schools managed by first-class teachers is injustice to the children. To furnish such schools will require money. The mone^ if. obtained, must come largely-from. the people. Are the people willing to be tax ed for this purpose? If we are to have au efficient public school sys tem. for the state, it must come in this way. It can come in nother. There are advocates, and the number ’s increasing, for taxing the whites to educate white chil dren, and taxing the negro to edu cate negro children. If this idea be consummated the difficulties in the way of good public schools will, to a great extent, be removed. The two races races are separate and distinct, and it is but natural that the whites should have an antipa thy to be taxed for the education of the negro, But will'the whites submit to taxation for the education of their children? If so let them out and speak definitely on this question that their representatives in the legislature may shape legis lation accordingly. It is quite clean that unless the people will submit to taxation for education®, purposes, they cannot have such a public school system as will be for the best interest of their children. While it may be-*true that many of us have and will soon cease to be patrons of schools thrbugh our own children, yet we presume there is none of this class who propose to ignore this question, if they de sire the upbuilding and prosperity of the country. In our judgment the southern state that soonest esi tablishes the best system of public schools for the education of chil dren-will rapidly become populous in her rural districts and gradual ly rise in the scale of prosperity. Hence now is the opportune time for the people to discuss this ques tion thoroughly that they may be able to reach definite conclusions concerning the same. examination of it.

At Altorf two statues have been set up, one of Tell and the other of his son, and it is recorded upon their ped estals that they stand up the exact positions occupied by Tell, Sr., and Tell, Jr., when the shooting was cate fertility soil. Some of these indications are given ini an article recently pub lished by the ehief'of the Agricul tural College at Down ton, Eng land. They constitute a guide by which even the inexperienced ag riculturist may judge with some degree of confidence of the pro ductiveness of the land. Black indicates barren soil, as the color is in most cases caused by an excess of vegetable matter or peat. White soil is also poor, as it is thin and chalky, or contains white sand close to the surface. Yellow also, whether dark or light, light gray, bine, a piebald or varie gated color, are each indicative of poverty. Good soil should be from twelve to eighteen inches deep. A clear ly cut furrow, or a footprint made when the soil is moist, which shows clear, sharp edges and the nail-marks, indicates tenacity, necessary quality in productive soil. In loamy soil the footprint is indistinct—the edges crumble away. The herbage, which of one kind or another usually covers soil, must be taken into consideration. The quantity and quality of this growth is a sure indication of the yielding power of the soil. A vig orous growth of ash, sycamore, and chestnut indicates good land, Larches grow on barren uplands and soil which can hardly he put to any other use. Beeches thrive on the thinnest of limestone, and birch will grow in infertile soil. The evidence of plants is impor tant. Chickxveed denotes fertility. Nettles, dandelions and butter cups do not grow on poor land. Thistles also indicate good soil, Certain wild grasses show bar renness. Grass lands which seem covered xvith dead, unkempt stuff, like badly made hay, is always barren. The state of the crops should be observed also, though that may indicate more as to the character of the farming than the quality of the land. barrennes of ■■ ernor is the Bev. James P.

Bourinot, received the title of “do minion” instead of “kingdom,” at the time of the confederation of the provinces in 1867, becap&e this Earl of Carnatv, then Secretary of State for the colonies, thought the latter designation would be objec tionable to the United States, which had just before so emphati cally objected to the establishment of an empire in Mexico. All through summer and fall I was troubled with chills and fevfer. I finally got a bottle of Smith’s Tonic Syrup, which stopped the chilli at one*—C. H. Wells, Mid- ville, Ga. I consider my cure by S. S. S. one of the most wonderful on rec ord. I had the worst type of Scrof ula from my infancy until I was 22 years of age. My whole young fife was embittered and made mis erable by loathsome disease. I not only suffered from the Scrofu la, but was so marked that I was ashamed to associate with, and was avoided by, my playmates and fel low workmen. I tried every known patent medicine, and was first and last attended by more than a dozen reputable physicians, but in spite of all, the disease continued to grow ivorse. About, four years ago a friend from Pittsburg ad- did, and after taking seven bottles I was cured sound and well.

As a matter of fact they have wholly distinct meanings, especially to those to whom they apply. The word He brew refers to the race, Israelite to the nation, which no longer exists, and Jew to the religion.
