one of Mother Earth’s flowers to
be among the rest in Heaven, for
on the loth of June, 1901, the an-

a wav tie spirit of Miss Annie
Johnson. She, at the time of her
death, resided in Macon, but was

yiiss Annie was a good girl, and
had a sweet smile for all. She will
be missed by her sister, but, dear
sister, she is in company with her
parents and sister awaiting your
coming. Only strive to meet her
in Heaven and there you will have
to part no mors.
She gave her heart to Christ
three weeks before death came.
Those that came to work in the
Lord’s vineyard at the eleventh
hour received as much pay as the
first that came. Although she was
the bed of affliction a long-
time, she said, “Christ has been
merciful to me.”
This bereavement is beyond our
comforting power, but the Heav
enly Father will console, for “He
doeth all things for the best.”
The bereaved sister and other rel
atives have the sympathy of their
nuiny friends. A Friend.
A Southern Man For President.
The discussion as to whether a.
southern man might not. be nomi
nated for president, seems to have
in mind the democratic party on-
For some benevolent reason re
publican newspapers are asking
the question as to whether the
south, the mother of our early
presidents, should not resume the
business of furnishing presiden
tial material. The discussion is
intended, of course, to demoralize
public opinion without any idea
of developing such a nomination.
The Nashville American declares
that even “the republicans would
not dare to nominate a southern
republican for president, because
they know the time has not yet
arrived when a southern man can
Nevertheless, we would suggest
to the republican leaders the ad
visability of putting up a south
ern candidate. They are loud, in
declaiming against sectionalism
and accuse; the democratic party
of being of sectional character,
powis the time for them to prove
their own freedom from sectional
ism by naming a southern repub
lisan to succeed Mr. McKinley.

Gradually the census figures
which have been giving us totals
in population for states and cit
ies are coming to the details in
which lie their most interesting
revelations. The latest group of
statistics gives us a notion of how
small a part ol the Union, terri-
torily considered, is engaged in
the first process of assimilating
the hordes of new-comers from
The extreme percentages of for
eign-born citizens in the country
are found in the East and North
east, and the next greatest in the
Northern Central division—the
group of states including Ohio,
Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota
and Michigan. That New York,
Pennsylvania, New Jersey and
Massackutetts have the larger
proportions of the foreign-born
will not come as a surprising rev
elation, since the average immi
gration returns show that about
89 per cent, of the arrivals from
abroad settle in the section cover

ter of the Connecticut population
The South bears little share, as
yet,in the work of receiving and
developing new citizens. The sta
tistics for 1900 thus far announc
ed cover only Alabama, and Ar
kansas, but the 1 per cent, of for
eign-born whites reported there
will be found to cover most other
States in the same sestion. The
negro situation has much to do
with this, and in the rapidly de
veloping “New South” very dif
ferent conditions may yet prevail.
Of course the character of immi
grants has to be considered in lo
cating them. Men who come es

where. But the old reception Stat

At the United States mints 66,
888,700 bronze cents were coined
last year—a larger number than
was produced during any previous
twelvemonth. The mintage of
these coins, however, has been
verv large indeed, in other years,
ranging from 85,000,000 in 1S95
to 49,000,000 in 1898. Few are

One week ago last Friday morn
ing the little two year old daugh
ter of Mr. R. R. Lewis, living
9 miles out on the Spense place
was bitten three or four times on
her ankle by a rattle snake. Mr.
Lewis happened to be up in the
yard after water, and hearing the
child scream went to her, and see
ing the black and blue spots on
the child’s ankle, surmised what
was the matter. By this time the
child ceuld not walk, the limb be
gan to swell, the child to vomit
and grow senseless. With great
presence of mind he called for a
bottle of iodine, which, fortunate
ly, was in the house, and freely
rubbed the wounds with the io
dine. It seemed to give relief at
once, and while the child was not
ble to walx for a week, he" says
she is now running abont and
getting quite well again.
The circumstances were so pe
culiar, and the cure so remark
able that all should know the
facts. The snake was in a crack
of one of the rails of the fence,
near the top, which the child was
climbing. It was afterward dis
covered and killed. It was a small,
two-year old, and 12 to 15 inches
Of course the parents immedi
ately brought the child to town
for medical treatment, but Mr.
Lewis feels that the iodine help
ed to counteract the effects of the
poisin, and at any rate helped to
save the life of his child.
Dignity of Agriculture.
Within recent years it has come
to be acknowledged that the vo
cation of the farmer is the most
dignified of all the sciences, and
as an art is excelled only by those
of painting and architecure. In
its highest forms it is ths most
learned of all the professions. A
knowledge of geology and cheim
istry and their relation to the
soils lies at the very foundation
of scientific agriculture. The prob
lems that arise from the complex
nature of ’the soils and their ori
gin require the best thought of
the best minds to solve. More ed
ucated young men should be farm
ers. Agriculture opens a wide field
leading to influence and power—
one, too, that is not filled to re
pletion. It holds forth the most
splendid promises for young men
of ambition.—Southern Farm

There is more Catarrh in this
section of the country than all
other diseases put. together, and
until the last few years was sup
posed to be incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced
it a local disease,and prescribed
local remedies, and by constantly
failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be
a constitutional disease, and
therefore requires a constitution
al treatment. Hall’s Catarrh Cure,
manufac cured by F. J Cheney
& Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure on the mar
ket. It is taken internally in dos
es from 10 drops to a teaspoonful.
It acts directly on the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system.
They offer one hundred dollars for
any case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testimonials.
