istiug crop of low efficients to handle
and insures tbe higher eraoieccy of
the neit generation. Those old enough
to work should be employed as fol
lows: enough should be placed on
farm to provide for tliH entire body.
These farms should be model farms
under the best management furnishing
experiment stations and bases for
agricultural instruction as well as the
food for the whole army and all its
officials; and where oottoo and such
piodacts were rsised they would be
a further source of inoome. As largo
percentage of the negro population is
best tnlted to agricultural labor this
would prove a very Important working
base for the Institution. By modern
methods of advanced agriculture the
land would be improved the best re
sults obtained from it and tbe laborers
continually taught their business.
The surrounding country would be
benefitted by these stations.
Another large number In mills and
shops belonging to the undertaking
would make clothing nniforma etc
for them all ; and another detachment
would assist In the necessary buildng.
All these are but the internal
functions of the new body; its direct

the crying need of the whole South

"With propel food suitable hours of

the strain of personal initiative and
responsibility to whiob so many have

proved themselves capable of working
on their own initiative tbey would be
graduated with honor. This institu
tion shoo Id be compulsory at tbe bot
tom, perfectly free at the top.
Each company would nave its
clerk, each individual would have his
enarate account as soon as bis labor
passed the amount necessary for tbe
support of the institution, and, when
above that amount, a wage land
should accumulate credited; to each
famishing small capital to start
with when graduated. Many who
would 'not perhaps prove capable of
entire personal reeponlbility, could
be organised in small post graduate
groups of farms or shops, and so re

A Common Cold.
We claim that if catching cold could be
avniiled some of the miM dangerous and
fatal diseases would never be heard of. A
cold often forms a culture bed for germs of
infectious disease. Consumption, pneu
monia, diphtheria and srarlet fever, four of
the moat dangeroiu and fatal diseases, are of
thin class. The culture bed formed by the
cold fuvor the development of the germa ol

What will appear very Interesting
to many people herej la tbe article
taken from a Mew York dally paper,
nivlng simple prescription, which is
said to be a positive remedy for back
act' a or kidney trouble or bladder de
rangement, if taken before tbe stage
of Bright'! disease:
Fluid extract of dandelion, one-halt
ounce ; Compound Kargon, one ounce;
Compound 8yrup Sarsparllla, three
onnce. Shake well In a bottle and
take in teasooooful doses Hfter each
meal and again at bedtime.
A well known druggist here at
home, when asked regarding this
prescription, stated that the lngre
dleuta are alt harmless and can be oh
taiued at a small cost from any good
DrescriDtion pharmacy, or the nilxtore
would be put up If asked to ao so.
He further stated that , while this
Dreeoription ia often prescribed in
rheumBtio afflictions with splendid
results, he could see no reason why it
ould not be a splendid remedy for
kidney and nrinary tioubles ana
backache, as it has a peculiar aotlon
upon the kidney structure, cleansing
these most important organs and
helping them to sift and filter from
tbe blood the foul acids and waste
matter which cause "icknesa and
