A COLLAPSED BUBBLE.
Tbe Coxey movement seems to have
-waned rapidly. It sprang up in a night
like a mushroom, attained its growth
and began to decay almost before its
existence was realized. Here and there
an "army" still fights nobly for a hand
oat, and Kelley's navy still holds pos
session of its' flat boats. It was the
crazy notion of a demagogue, but the
great body of tramps flocked to join the
armies, not knowing and not caring
what the objects of 'the leaders were,
content to find a semblance of import
ance, and an excuse for demanding
something to eat.
Whatever Coxey's original idea was
fif he had any), it was soon lost, de
stroyed by the stomachic troubles of the
Impecunious tourists who flocked to his
standard. Instead of presenting to con
gress a "living petition," he succeeded
only in changing unorganized mendi
cancy into organized beggary. Those
who were born weary, those who
achieved weariness, and those who,
through strikes or otherwise, had weari
less thrust upon them, flocked to his
standard, armed with tomato cans and
a grim determination not to work, and
they swamped him. He was going to
dictate to congress at tbe head of thous
ands of pathetic "fearful examples,"
and he was hustled off the grass like a
common vagrant by a blue-coated po
liceman. What at first gave promise of a trag
edy, developed into a comedy, and
wound up a rip-roaring farce. The
country trembled at the first appearance
ti tbe great leader, but one glimpse of
the animal and one roar from -his lungs
set everybody laughing at the modern
presentation of the old fable. The lion's
kin did not fit, and that its wearer
abould be cudgeled, though by a police
msn, is quite in keeping with the moral
ol the old story. In the meanwhile his
jagged followers have gone to worship
ping the golden calf, the kitchen hand
cot, careless as to whether or not their
Moses gets back.
The sugar- schedule in the Wilson
"tariff bill has stirred up a pretty mess.
It is admitted freely by the sugar men
that they literally "put up the sugar"
3or the democrats to make their last
campaign on. The amount is yet in
question, but is believed to be in round
numbers a half a million dollars.
Whether tbe use of this vast sum had
anything to do with the results of that
election is an open question and one
that does not pertain to this article.
Tke United States government can
exist only while the right of the major
ity to rule is admitted, and practiced.
When that majority can be obtained, or
is obtained, by bribery or force, then
3he boastedSfreedom of America's citi
zens is gone, and the republican form of
government, or at least our form of it,
will prove a failure. When a few paltry
dollars will offset the vote of an honest
and intelligent citizen, the public be
comes the prey of the unscrupulous
The getting into control and retention
of power will be no longer within the
control of the peopie, but will be subject
to the will of money in the hands of un
conscionable scoundrels. Power will be
bought, and the price will in turn be
collected from the people. No patriotic
citizen, who keeps informed on political
sulsjects, can look the situation in the
3ace witheut shuddering when men of
wealth will . unblushingly admit, as
Searles did before the Benate committee
Wednesday, that "As parties were now

MILLET AND THE HARVESTERS.
Tbe Artist Could Swine a Scythe with
the Best of Them.
Pierre Millet, a young-er brother of
the painter of the" "Ang-elus," describes
the artist s life at Uarbizon, in Century.
When it was harvest-time, he would
often lead the way to the places where
he hoped to see the harvesters at work.
When we were at a little distance
from them, he would stop. "See," he
would say; "all theirmovements count.
There is nothing done uselessly. No
tice, too, how well the light strikes
them and absorbs all the little details,
till there remain only thp stronger ac
cents of shade which define here and
there the luminous masses. The light
of 'the plain is entirely different from
that of the studio, where it enters only
by a window. It is something of which
a g-ootl many painters who never go
out of Paris have no idea."
It sometimes happened that these
harvesters would notice that we were
observing them, and some of the band
would say to the others: "See these
Parisians who are looking at us. I
should like to see them do our work.
It is another thing to hold pencils, hey?'
Francois once said to them: "Ah.
what you do is very difficult, is it
"If you wish to try it, you will find
out," replied one. "Here, take my
This did not disturb Francois. He
took the scythe and began to cut the
wheat with an ease and skill superior
to theirs. They did not watch him
klong before they exclaimed: "Ah,
monsieur, it is not tne first time you
have done this work! You do it better
continuing our walk, we came upon
other objects of artistic interest.
These were people binding the wheat
into sheaves, and others loading the
carts, and transporting the sheaves to
the place where they were piling them
in huge stacks. Francois watched this
with great eagerness, saying to me:
"See the grand movements of the men
who lift the sheaves on their pitch-
iorKS, to give tnem to those who are
on the stacks. It is astonishing, to
ward the approach of night, how
grand everything on the plain appears.
especially when we see figures thrown
out against the sky. Then they look
History of an Illicit Still Which Has Been
Operated for Thirty Years.
The capture of an illicit still operated
near Sinking mountain by Deputy Col
lector Brown recalls a story of long
continued defiance of law. The still
was bought in New Haven in 1858 and
was put to use on the plantation of
the late Georsre Dve. When the war
opened, says the St. Louis Globe-Dem
ocrat, it passed into the bands of a
Habersham county whisky dealer, who
did a rushing business for four years.
There was no railroad at the time
within one hundred miles of this sec
tion, and the liquor made by "Old
Nancv," as the still was fondly named.
was the favorite tra'de not only through
northeast Georgia, but crossed the
lines into North and South Carolina,
Once the still was embargoed by the
officers of Habersham in 1803 because
of the demoralization it created among
the small boys, who, with the old men,
were about all there were left.
With the restoration, of United States
authority "Old Nancy" became con
traband. Revenue prisoners brought
before United States commissioners
would tell about how "Old Nancy" was
prospering, but try as they would the
officers never could capture the still.
When the distillers of one community
found themselves too closely pressed
they would run the still over the moun
tain or down the creeks to where com
panions in lawlessness would secure
possession of it, and they would run it
until compelled to do likewise. J. his
was the still in quest of which Lieut.
Mclntyre, of the United States army,
was killed in Gilmore county in 1875.
Subsequently it was run back east,
being operated on arwoman creek.
in Rabun county, for several years.
Of late the officers heard that
this will-o'-the-wisp, which they have
been following for thirty years, was in
operation in a secluded region near
Sinking mountain. Collector iirown,
with an armed posse, successfully lo
cated the spot one night during a
violent rainstorm. The moonshiners
fled, giving the officers the opportunity
of destroying the whole plant.
Boils, abscesses, tumors and even
cancers, are tbe result or a natural enort
of the system to expel the poisons which
the liver and kidneys have failed to re
move. Ayer's Sarsaparilla stimulates
all the organs to a proper performance
of their functions.
