Written for The Scout.
Come nil ye grumbling citizens,
Of every crude and rnnk;
Tbo high and low, tlio rich and poor,
The portly and the lank.
"We'll meet In some most dismal place
Where each can do Ids best;
To grumble at some other, and
Outgmntblc all the rest.
We'll grumble nt the weather, loo,
We'll grumble if It's foul;
We'll crumble when the wind don't blow,
And grumblo when it IjowJm.
We'll grumble at the nilildy streets
UccauFC it soils our clothes;
We'll crumble when the streets arc dry,
For dust fills eyes and nose.
We'll grumble 'cause our cattle die,
We'll crumblu lor our sheep;
We'll grumbto when the hay is dear
And grumble- when It's cheap.
Wo'irgrumblo If our neighbor has
' Homo cash he has lain away;
We'll grumble 'cause bo doirt divide
It all twixtyou ami I.
We'll gnunblo 'cause the mail don't come.
And grumble when it docs;
We'll grumble 'caue wo fail to get
A letter tilled with news.
We'll grumble If wo can't get work ;
We'll grumble then our best,
And if some one will oiTer work,
We'll grumble then for rest.
If each of us could have our wish.
Of blessings nave our fill;
Wo yet would discontented bo,
And would keep grumbling still.

How ThanUBZlYhiG Day la Observed Among
the People of tbo South.
Kaixioii, South Carolina
Emxou Orkdon Scout:
This word brings to us many tender
memories of past associations of past
Bcono nnd of frionds of Auld Lang
Syno; sonic still in tho Hesli, nnd somo
ovor the river beckoning to ns. To u
perfon born nnd reared in Massaclm
setts, tho word Thankfgiving means n
great deal. The Thanksgiving memor
ies of longest time will naturally bo of
the grcnt dinner; tho wonderful dinner
of turkey, chicken pie, boiled dish,
plum pudding and throo kinds of pio.
But ns tho boy grows to tho man, theso
memories will loso ronio of tho.r vivid
ness, and others less sunsuoua and
of a more sentimental naturo will fill
the still chambers of the bruin. As
manhood holds us in tho ever whirling
sweep of limo, all tho momories of tho
past nro mingled with life's facts of tho
present. Tho weight of caro, tho bur
.den of toil, tho sharp push of this rush-
ing age, tho many pleasures of life, its
fullness of happiness or fullness of woo,
nro all combined to make tbo momor
ies of the past yield soniothing of thoir
hold upon tho heart of tho living man
of tho present.
But, Thanksgiving, for a timo,a day
or an hour perohanco, may brush all
aside, and for a little while bid Memory
rule tho heart and -mind. Thanks
giving comes to us in our southern
homo upon tho minio day of tho year
as it used to come to us in our north
orn homo; and as it comes to our
friends and reuders who still cling to
tho spot of birth. Tho timo is tho
same, but conditions and environ
ments aro different. Tho proclama
tion by tho President, of a day for
TluuiKtigiving, makes the day a day of
special notico throughout tho land;
hut tho kind and degree of notico aVo
different, according to locality.
Throughout tho South, tho day is lo
gally and olllciully observed as a holi
day. Business is also largely giving it
plaoo in tho fow days of tho year bo
aides Sundays on which it will close its
doors and rest, lis social observance
holds little placo among tho families
of tho South. Its religions observance
ia Million naught; and how much
more than that can bo said of its reli
gious observance ut tho North? All
mills and manufactories wilt run as on
other wee); days. All mechanics will
ge ou with their work as usual. Somo
otoros will bo dotted, But that homo
jgntlioring frf scattered families which
has marked tho day from tho first in
New England, is unknown in tho
Southland, among those to the manor
born. It is not even a day for feasting
on tho good things of life to any ex
tent. But custom may change, and
now be grafted on the old.
Tho name, tho day and its obser
vance, originated in the early days of
New England; and as tho New Eng
enders havo spread over the continent
so that bus spread ; until tho United
States havo made it a day to bo ob
served in somo degree by tho whole
From what we have stated, it might
bo inferred that tho South is not moved
by tho proclamation of tho President
calling for a day of Thanksgiving.
But thero aro many families from the
North scattered and settled in tho
South, which still cling to as much of
tho old timo honored Thanksgiving as
circumstances will permit. Tho day
is tenderly remombored. The tradi
tional turkey finds its place upon tho
dinner tablo, and ministers of northern
birth or education aro making appoint
ments for religious services in their
Wo are of Now England birth ; and
though far away from the dear old
homo, we found much to bo thankful
for aa tho day came to us in all tho
beauty of an autumn day in the South.
No snow, no ice, but a eloudlcis sky,
with bracing air, tilled with the song
and chatter of countless birds, and
warm sunshine, Heaven's gift for ro
r.oivod health and coinfortablo life,
made us heartily thankful tiiat our
homo had bocomo rooted in u part of
our great land which gives so much
and makes his so easy. Tho day
brought to us many blessings. Frionds
about us, and renowed customs of
early years, made us truly thankful
that our lines aro cast in so good a
placo, and that wo havo so good a heri

Naws of the Week as Notod byOurRes-
Washinotojc, D. C. Dec. 6, 1801
Editor Oukcjon Scout:
Tho Farmers' Alliance, as an organ
ization, has no representatives in either
branch of the present Congress,
but iudging from tho largo nuin-
bor about a dozen of bills pro
viding for tho free coinago of silvor
that havu beau introduced in both
House and Senate it is evident that a
number of gentlemen belonging to
both the republican nnd democratic
parties believe with tho alliance that
tho country's most plugging need, is an
increase m tlio amount of money in
Thero was much disappointment
among thopo gentlemen when the pres
ident's message appeared without a
recommandation for increasing the
volunio of curronuy in circulation, and
much more when tlio day afterwards
Secretary Windom's annual report ap
peared without tho incontrovertible
bond scheme which ho is known to be
strongly in favor of as a moans of put
ting more money in circulation. Thoy
derived considerable satisfaction from
this acknowledgement which Mr.
Windom makes in his report, .and
which they considor an unintentional
endorsement of their ideas: "In mv
udgment the gravest defect in our
present nnanuial system is its lack of
elasticity. Tho demand for money
n this country is so irregular that an
amount of circulation which will be
ample during ton mouths of the year
will frequently prove so deficient du
ring the other two months as to cause
tringeuoynnd commurciul disaster."
It was probably iho iulluunce of Mr.
larrison that prevented Mr, Witidoin
rum presenting the bond schomo to
congress, ami tho same nilluonco is
now being natively nsd to pro-vent tho '
adoption of any eilvor legislation ftl ;

Plumb nro trustworthy prophets, tho 1

Senate will paf-s a free coinage bill.
One result of the prosiduit's mcs
sago was that tho republican senators
nil voted to take up tbo Federal elec
tioti bill. Ihis makes an interesting
situation which may be summed up as
follows: Tho republican leaders aro
determined and enthusiastic in their
policy, with which a largo majority of
their party is in accord; a minority
are indifferent, but willing to support
tho bill as a party measure, while
few republican Senators aro believed to
be opposed to tho bill, but they will in
tho end probably vote for it for
fear of being accused of a lack of cour
ago. The democrats enter tho fight
without republican allies and will de
pend on their own ellbris. They will
restrain themselves until tho rcpubli
cans attempt to cut off debate and force
the bill through, then they will resort
to and every parlimontary method, no
matter how desperate, in order to filli
buster against the change of rules
which is necessary before the bill can
bo passed. This will precipitate one of
the sharpest and bitterest fights that
ever took place in Congress, and tho
winning side is in doubt, with the
chances slightly in favor of the repub
licans, but, if on tlio question of t
change of rulos any of tho republicans
vote with tho democrats it will reverse
Senator Cullom is evidently anxious
to. keep abreast with public sontiment,
tboroforo ho has introduced a bill pro
viding for ono cent letter postage, and
he assures me that ho intends to havo
it voted upon at this session. This is
well. Lot tho people know who are
their friends in Congress, for no friend
ot mo pcopio win vote against ono
cent letter postage

against tbo International copyright
