The Man Who Told Us So.
“What shall the harvest be?”
With the seeds of disaster sown:
With the devil loose, with net and noose,
To gather in his own;
But ’tis sad to recall our actions last fall —
A debt of remorse we owe—
When we howled and hooted and our bas
At those who told us so.
Our troubles are here, as predicted last
Did mortal e’er see such distress ?
The Juggernaut’s wheels and goldbug heels
Are crushing, we’re free to confess.
But now, drunk or sober, we’ll think of
The month of election, you know—
When we votea and repealed, and at the
ballot box cheated,
All those who told us so.
Now, our party is divided, our heroes
Alaa! what a pitiful plight;
Twixt Grover and gold we’re out in the
They raise not an arm for the right;
And we can but remember how last Nov
To what extremes poor mortals will go—
When we “cussed’’ as best we knew, and
“rotten eggs” threw,
At him who told us so.
But now we confess, in direst distress,
They were patriots far above our ken;
Far above those we know—as General So
Are angels created superior to men;
So with “Satan put behind us,” just look
and you’ll find us,
Not marching to and fro,
But we-11 honor our prophet, and our hat
we'li doff it,
To the man who told us so.

Resolutions on The Life of Rev, Luke
Whereas, it has pleased almighty God
in His divine majesty and wisdom to
take from us our beloved Christian friend
and brother, the Rev. Luke Robinson.
Resolved Ist, That as we mourn for
him. we meekly bow in humble submis
to Him whose righteous will we ac
knowledge to be supreme for He doeth
and governeth all things well.
Resolved 2d, That in the death of him
whom we all delighted to love and to
honor, we have suffered great loss for
one has gone whose place we feel will
always be vacant. He was a man who
stood at all times for God and the right
and often against heavy odds. His nev> r
failing courage and integrity for truth
made him more than conquerer. He
was for nearly 23 years a minister of the
gospel according to the baptist faith,
having been licensed to preach at Union
Grove ohuroh, June 26, 1869 (which
place at that time was in Newton
county, but now Rockdale,) the great
est and best efforts of his life he gave
to the people and community that sur
round old Union Grove, though his in
fluence was felt far and wide, for
wherever he went as “a faithful watch
man upon the walls of Zion.” he was
found doing good, to the eternal bene
fit of his fellow countrymen. To know
-him was to love him and feel impressed
with the God given influence of a good
great man. His life, his work, his
character, will be a lasting monument
to the memory of his people.
The night following the day on
which he was licensed he preached
from the text. * And behold! I come
quickly and my reward is with me, to
give every man according as his work
shall be.” and from that time with the
word of the gospel he has waged an
incessant warfare upon all that was
evil or wicked until he heard the Di
vine call of his Master to come up high
er, when he laid aside his armor and
on the wings of faith he was borne
across the chilly waters of death. He
went to his abundant reward according
as his works had been. “Asleep in
Resolved (rd, that we, while mourn
ing his loss, realize the simplicity of
his life, the fearlessness of his spirit
and his honesty, will be an incentive
and inspiration to the members of our
order wherever hie fidelity is known,
4th, that we extend our sympathies
to the bereaved family that they too
have a warm place in the hearts of all
true alliancemen with him.
Resolved sth, that a copy of these
resolutions be submitted to the Living
Issues for publication.

THE LIVING ISSUES ATLANTA. GEORGIA OCTOBER 5 iBH
The Dishonest Dollar.
The Chicago Farmers'Voice furnishes
the following evidence to prove that the
gold dollar is the most “dishonest dol
lar in existence:”
“The most dishonest dollar that ever
circulated is the barbaric gold dollar.
For thousands of years it has been the
silent robber of honest industry and the
despoiler of the brightest civilizations
that have adorned the world. It has
been strangling the producer of the
world’s wealth, impoverishing the
masses, enriching the few and starving
many. In those nations in which it is
the cruel monetary despot—the sole
measure of value and the only legal
tender—its value practically equals the
value of all other property and it has
the monstrous power of confiscating all
other wealth. If one man owned all
the gold in the world, his insignificant
possession would be equivalent in value
to all the farms, and homes and prod
ucts of the earth. But while one man
does not possess all the gold, all of it is
practically under the control of one
great, absorbing, greedy and passion
less banking house. The gold dollar
has crowded itself into the currency of
every nation, and usurped the functions
of every other kind 'of money, sooner or
later, in every instance, bankrupting
the masses and paralying industry.
What else could be expected? When
the basis of business and of debts has
been a larger circulating medium of one
kind and another, what else could be
expected than that bankruptcy and dis
tress should follow the confining of legal
tender money to a metal that everybody
acknowledges is not plentiful enough to
do the business of the world with?
Whenever any man or set of men or
system seeks to put it beyond the power
of the debtor to pay his debt, it is an
exhibition of impudent dishonesty; and
that is what gold standard of value and
only legal tender means. The gold dol
lar is as dishonest as satan is ugly.”
Life Insurance has become one of the
best methods for accumulating an im
mediate estate for the protection of
one’s loved ones and as a provision for
one’s own old age.
How unwise it is for a man to work
and wait twenty years for the accumu
lation of two, five or ten thousand dol
lars when by this means for about the
same amount an he would pay for the
taxes on that much property he has an
instantly accumulated fortune; and the
small amount that he puts away once
or twice a year for this purpose is
eaning him a good rate of interest.
Should his demise occur in the inte
rim his family is immediately provided
for even as though he had lived, worked
and waited twenty years or more to
accumulate this sum.
There is much to recommend invest
ment of this nature it being tax free,
exempt from debt and insolvency, made
by law and the company’s written con
tract non-forfeitable after only three
payments, so that in the event of his
ceasing further investment the insured
will receive his pro rata share.
