THE BEmi PLM. The people of bat 11 have fallen upon a novel solution ol the ne gro problem in that beat. A few nights ago some parties met and fired over a hundred shots around tbe negro houses in ;Snip perville beat. NeXtseciet letters were sent by the BctifyiBg Band to the regroes ot the beat warding them to "move on," This was lollowed by a written warning to Landlords not to employ ceproes tor 1899. The negroes ate said to ba thoroughly frightened and prepariug to move. The BaDd is variously esiimated tobe from 100 to 200 stroug, - ' ! . Then plan ot proceedure is a novel one. it is said that they profess to be marching under The White Supremacy banner. They claim that this is a white mrn's country and the negro is a nuisiance as a laborer and in aociety. Public sentiment is said to favor this new solution of tbe problem. It is sufe to , say that unless something is done to suppress the White Su premacy Band Skipporviile beat will not have any negroes in it another year. -.. , . It is said that Dothan has kept itself Blear of negro barbers pretty much after the fashion of the Skip perville Band. In North Carolina there is said to be. a small ci'y cf Northern people where no negroes are allowed to live. It is ori recollection that it was once "against, the law" lor a nF gro to live in Cullman in this state. It will be a sad day for tbe Southern negro whenever his labor ceases to be remunerative to the farmers. They will be in danger of being driven from one community to another by the irate and the slightest provocations will engender race conflicts. ' The tie that" has beretolore bound the negro and Southern farmer iu peaceful union has been the profit to the latter from the former's la bor. " j.'our cent cot; on has abiter- ated that tie, .- .

We had thought that every body knew by this time that tbe Bankrupt law whs no "poor man's law,'' but, to our surprise, some of our friends continue to believe that it is. It is strange to us how any b-idy could belie7e that any legislation bad beeu enacted in tbe interest of tb 'mortgage ridden poor" by the American Cougresa.wbeu that body is composed of rich lawy ers. But all the fools are not dead yet It is folly, yea worse than fo!lyj for tb farnie s to expect legisla ion in their iutereat so loug as they vote for rich meu to make the law8. Wealth is selfish and rich men legislate lor themselves always. The farmers have alwys been tba laughing stock of the world and if.they keep up their present gait tbey always will be. It astouode us to see a farmer looking fer salvation to a Legislature com poaed of the rich men ot the ountry.V There is no salt on the lick-log for the farmers; never has been and never will be, Farmers lake a raveuous delight in voting for lawyers, They would deny their names sooner than elect f laiu, simple, country farmers 'to office, It was ever thus. Now we want to say as emphatically as we cn o the farmers- of (Lis country that thre is- 'toothing in the bankrupt JaN for them but trouble by the cat Iod., No farmer ned look to legisla tion for relief from his 'lis. Others' get benefit, from the laws because they vote for man who are pledged to it. But we say unto th farmers that neither they nor thtir seed will do any tiling but eat salt in tho sweat of the face forever.' The plain truth is. friends, tbe Bankrupt Jaw was passed for an other class of people. Up 111 Pennsylvania last wef !. a man went into Bankruptcy. owed $900 000! The Bankrupt. Ihw was paused tor his beuefit. It any of you owe that much you can take the law to advantage. The salt on the lick-log' is for that class of cattle thy vote ioi it, work tor it and get it. Unto.the end of the chapter the .farmers, will continue to get what they vote for,' Over-productioa of taxes aud iuterest rates is what atlg the poor farmers of the South. .... Dr. J.R.

Garner's Attention. Each Legislature is hindered and encumbered witrh Lciil Legislation measures of no interest to ttny body outside of tl)e county in terested. This prevents necessary consideration of genvril legisla tion and impedostho state's prog resa. It was our intention if we had beenelsoted to the Legislature t have inliotluced.ti bill givinsr the Coinmib8io)iers Court legislative powers. Local self government is one of the first principles of a true democracy. Local legislation wlwn accomplished by tho Logis-lature is always the work .of.- 0110 or lY$"ineh, j The poorer 'cf asses of thepeople; are not'able io'go to Montgomery to ask for such legislation as thty desire or to com bai- such as is iuimical' to their interests and consequently such legislation usually crats discord and the political death oi the sitting member. Everything indicates that it yiould be far better, give more sa'isfac'.iou locally and more time for the considbratiou of general 1 Pfiislat ion if all this local legislation wer turned ovr to the Oom-missionera Courts of the respective counties. We hope Hon. Wm. Garner will introduce a bill, giving the people of this State local self government. Then every body could petit iou with, his boots on aud unsatisfactory legislation could bs avoided-If this were done it wou'd seem necessary to shorten a Commissioners term ro two years so tht a a unpopular legislator could be cashiered.

The most offensive of all dis-r-asoa becomes more intense as oold weather approaches. In fact, many who have been under treatment for so long, and during the Miiiimor fee! little discomfort frorn i ho disease, are almost persuaded that t hoy have been cured. Bit the first chilling blast of winter proves that the' disease is still wth them, and as the winter advances, their Catarrh grows in severity. Those who have felt only a slight touch of Catarrh may be sure tJiat only cold weather is needed to develop tbe disease. What appears to be onlv a bad cold will prove more difficult to cure than jfor- merlv. and will rotum with more frequency until before long, the- disease w fully developed.

Uatarm increases in severity year by year, and becomes one of the most obstinate and deep-seated troubles. But it is equally important that the right remedy be given. All local applications, of, aprays, washes, inhalations, etc, can never cure Catarrh,' fcr thejr do not reach the disease.
