THE WEALTH MAKERS.
Served in Two Wars.
THE GRIP ALMOST WON WHERE THE
Oar Sympathies always Enlisted in
the Infirmities of the Veteran
From the Herald, Woodstock, Va.)
There is an old soldier in AVoodstopk,
Va., who (served in the war with Mexico
and in the war of the rebellion, Mr. Ivi
Mcluturff. lie passed through both
these wars without a serious wound. The
hardships, however, told seriously on
him, for when the grip attacked him four
years ago it nearly killed him. Who cnu
look on the infirmities of a veteran with
out a feeling of the deepest sympathy?
His townspeople saw him confined to his
house so prostrated with great nervous
ness that he could not hold a knife and
fork at the table, scarcely able to walk
too, and as he attempted it, lie often
stumbled and fell. They saw him treated
by the best talent to be had but still he
Buffi-red on for lour years, and gave up
finally in despair. One day, however, he
was struck by the account of a cure
which had been effected by the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. He immediately
ordered a box and commenced taking
them. He says lie was greatly relieved
within three days time. The blood found
its way to his fingers and his hands
which had been palsied assumed a natu
ral color, and he was soou enabled to use
his knife and fork at the table. He has
recovered his strength to such an extent
that he is able to chop wood, shock corn
and do his regular work about his home.
He now says he can not only walk to
Woodstock, but can walk across the
mountains. He is able to lift up a lifty
two pound weight with one hand and
eays he does not know what Dr. AVill
iams' Pink Pills have done for others,
but knows that they have done a great
work for him.
He was in town last Monday, court
day, and was loud in his praise of the
medicine that has given him so great re
lief. He purchased another boxand took
it home with him. Mr. Mcluturff is will
ing to make affidavit to these facts.
The proprietors of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills state that they are not a patent
medicine but a prescription used for
many years by an eminent practitioner
who produced the most wonderful re
sults with them, curing all forms of weak
ness arising from a watery condition of
the blood or shattered nerves, two fruit
ful causes of almost every ill to which
flesh is heir. The pills are also a specific
for the troubles peculiar to females, such
as suppressions, all forms of weakness,
chronic constipation, bearing down
pains, etc., and in the case of men will
give speedy relief and effect a permanent
cure in all cases arising from mental
worry, overwork, or excesses of what
ever nature. They are entirely harmless
and can be given to weak and sickly
children with the greatest good and
without the slightest danger. Pink
Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be
sent post paid on receipt of price, (50
cents per box, or six boxes for f 2. 50
th ey are never sold in bulk or by the
100) by addressing Dr. Williams' Medi
cine Compuuy, Schenectady, N. Y,
The great question of the future is
money against legislation. My friends,
you and I will be in our graves long
before that battle is ended, and, unless
our children have more patience and
courage than saved this country from
slavery, republican institutions will go
down before moneyed corporations.
Rich men die, but banks are immortal
and railroad corporations never have
any disease. In the long run with
legislatures they are sure to win.
There is to be a concerted action
on the part of labor to mSike a decisive
stand for an eight-hour day in 1896.
The power of organization is gradual
ly and slowly shaping the forces for
the contest, and when it comes it will
be so sweeping and general that noth
ing can resist it. It will be a fight to
a finish and will win. It must and
shall win. The very life and liberty
of trades unions and the individual
members themselves depend upon this
struggle. Journal of Labor.
Most people are so little posted on
political economy that they believe it
is capital that pays labor. In short,
that wages are drawn from capital;
that it is from the store of the employer
that the workman gets his . wages.
The fact of the matter is, the work
man renders to his employer a greater
value than he receives in wages. He
creates the value of his wages before
he secures it. Hence, instead of wages
being drawn from capital it is com
pensated from the value which labor
itself creates. Kansas City (Mo.) Hu

The Kansas City Times of October
4 closes an able editorial upon the
government ownership of telegraphs
with the following paragraph:
"Although the Times has never
favored the government ownership of
the telegraph or railroads, it fully ap
preciates the great variances existing
between the conditions prevailing in
Great Britain and the United States,
still it desires to print the truth, com
prising all sides of all public ques
tions, and it must be confessed that
the foregoing figures present a re
markably strong argument in favor of
government ownership of the tele
graph, even though it would introduce
one feature of the pernicious system of
paternalism into our institutions."
The "foregoing figures" referred to
are those in reference to the govern
ment operated telegraph in Englaud,
embodied in the article by Judge
Walter Clark, with which our readers
are already familiar.
There isono peculiarity, or "fad," the
Times clings to with strange perver
sity, through all the changing muta
tions of time. It denounces every
proposition looking to the perform
ance of public duties by the public
itself, as "paternalism."
No logical argument can bo brought
against the urgent necessity for, or
the righteous equity and eminent prac
ticality of this proposed plan of gov
ernment telegraphs. Put there may
be raised the cry of that accursed
phrase "paternalism," which is ever
erected as a barrier in the path of hu
The Times was among the first to
urge the argument (?) "paternalistic"
against a eovernmental banking sys
tem; though, in its overweening anxi
ety to force a large issue of bonds, it
admitted that it is the duty of the gov
ernment to furnish a safe place of de
posit for the savings of the people.
, In its leading editorial of January
26, 1894, the Times said:
"One of the duties of government is
to furnish a safe depository or invest
ment for the savings of the people. It
has been proposed many times to "have
a postal savings bauk system, but this
method has been opposed, on the
ground that it savored of paternalism,
which is obnoxious to the American
The writer then went on to advocate
the issuance of "bonds by the govern
ment in low denominations drawing a
rate of interest as large as can be paid
by safe and conservative banking in
stitutions, which bonds shall be in
tended to be sold directly to the peo
ple." This, the Times argued, would
be better than the scheme for postal
savings banks proposed by the popu
list party; and these securities, says
the Times, will be readily convertible
into cash at any bank and at the vari
ous sub-treasuries of the United States,
thus partaking readily of the element
of a circulating medium.
In unguardedly making this confes
sion as to the duty of the government,
Shylock overreached himself and, in
the slang vernacular of the period,
"put himself in a hole."
The long-time or savings deposits of
the people amount to at least $3,000,
000,000. As it was only proposed to
issue $200,000,000 of the bonds, such
bonds would have provided the govern
ment with a medium of performance of
only one-tenth of its duty, leaving
nine-tenths to be performed through
the channel of goTernment banks.
But what if there are no such bonds
issued? Then the whole duty of the
government remains unperformed and
government banks remain the only
mode of its performance. And when
it is proposed that the government
shall perform its recognized and
acknowledged duty the cry qf "pater
nalism" is raised! , .
The friends and advocates of the
plan must retort "fraternalism, not pa
ternalism." ' liecognizinsr and ac
knowledging the universal Father
hood of God, we must emphasize its
corrollary and natural sequence, the
universal brotherhood of man. There
can be no such thing as paterjialisn in
a nation where every individual is'a
component part of the government'
In such a nation, the people govern
themselves as brothers no one rules
over them as a father. Each and every
individual is a member of the body
politic, as also a member of the uni
versal man, the genus homo. The
heart; the brains; the hands; they are
not of the individual, but of the race.
The achievements; the triumphs; the
glories; are the heritage of humanity,
not of individual atoms. So in the
body politic the social organism
there are functions which belong to
the whole public functions and
cares which pertain to the individual
The telegraph is essentially a public
utility, being a principal medium for
the transmission of news and intelli
gence. It is properly a part of the
postal system of the nation and should
be operated, not for profit, but for the
benefit and convenience of the people.
Public ownership and operation in
England has decreased the cost to one

Among the rights of the laborer are
to be noted an opportunity for honest
