A 19th CENTURY A Newspaper Man Relates a Mar- vellous Story. in Interesting Chapter in His Own Life-Some, We Hope, May Profit by Reading Same. Fromth* Ilerald, Columbia, Ttnn. M»ury County ia one of the richest and iVggest and best counties in Tennessee. It •*ou]d be an eyaggeration to say that any an» man knew every other man in this axurty,_but it may safely be said thatfe\v,if *ny, CBTI como nearer to it than Mr. Joe M. Toster, whose home is at Carter's Creek, and •who is now connected with the Herald. In the interest ol" tho Herald ho has visited learly every home iu tlio county. Upon "itfate" occasions—that is. the Herald's a.n- snal pic-uic Teuniini he is the "Muster of •Ceremonies." There nre few men belter few better liked, none more trusted, externally, but all to no effect, until, about April 1st. 1803, a cousin, Mr, A. N, Aiken, of Columbia (who is now clerk and Master and -what he says the Herald, uucoudiiioiiaUy «mi nnequivocnlly, will vouch for. To see him now in perfect health and mergy, one would not think tlmt two nncl .«• half years ngo ho was a bed-ridden invalid, a physical wreck, whose family ybysician, loved ones at home mid friends all thought WHS soon to be culled hence. But such' ia Ilia cnse, and not only he but his Jamily and a hundred friends will testify to it. It was a peculiar alllietion he had, and his OTrc was marvellous, his recovery a nine teenth .Century miracle. And that others aa*T enjoy the blessings of the wonderful medicine which beyond the peradventuro 01 a.doubl—under God's blessing—saving his 3ift, Mr. Foster—not desiring publicity bul Tritn the hope of doing good—has con- wnted to tell of his sickness and his cure. It was in the fall of .1892 lie was taken ill. He wai» farmer then, and had spent the day exposed to the weather and working' in the Held, and for five hours was in the mud, in a stooping position. In a few days thereafter l'e> had a peculiar feeling in his feet and lands; they became numb and felt 03 if asleep. But, perhaps, it would be better to let Mr. Totter tell his own experience, and this is •»Jiat he says: '••Following the numbness of my feet and ia'ndsVthat numbness spread until my whole !>oU;<. -.Mas paralyzed. I hud a dreadful con- »trieiii>tti around my body, and as I grew worse this extended up, cutting off ray breathing; it finally got within a few inches •f my throat and it was with difficulty that 1 breathed at all. At irregular intervals I Had lightning pain* throughout my entire Abd$r and limos, and for at least five months, liwarperfectly helpless, and a man servant was kept: in my room day and night to turn me in bed and wait upon me. u lnthe earlier part of my illness my feet Helt a» if I wa.i walking bare-footed on a stifl •aural. Soon I could not walk at all in the dart,, and could not even stand alone with my eyes shut. I rapidly grew worse, and seen my limbs refused to carry me. Finally ;0 Host my sense ot feeling or touch, and maid not tell when my feet were against 4ach other, but felt all the while as if they •»«re being pulled apart. "In the beginning I had called in my Umily physician, a very successful practitioner. He put me on a treatment, with in- irinictions to keep very quiet. But I contiu- ncd to grow worse, and in about six weekn he of the Chaucery Court of this county), commended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Pule People. "I bogiin using them as per directions fbt loconiotor atuxia, and in about one week some of my friends thought I. was better; but it was two -weeks before the improvement vn.i plain to all and sawsfuctory to myself. Then, however, I knm> the pills were doing their grant! and glorious work, and I kept taking them uutil I could hobble about on crutches. *'Il. was suggested to me then that nature would do tho rest, and I left oft' the pills,. In about ten days I saw thnt I WHS going down bill again; I promptly renewed the pills, mid (wain I began to improve. A second time^ I tried to leiivc the battle to a good constitution, but found it still too weal; so I commenced 'on the pills ngoia and ki-pt taking them until I was we!!.

"J have recommended these pills to a number of people, and many I know have been cured by them. I wish in my heart that every person on earth who is suffering as I was could get them and would try them. ," To those who know me, I hope it is not necessary for me to add that I make this statement of my own free will, without money and without price.

"Wo, the democrats of the United Statei, In national uonvnntlon assembled, do reaffirm. our allegiance to those great essential principles of Justice , 'and. liberty . upon which our .Institutions are founded 'and which the democratic party has advocated from Jcn't-'i'Hon's time to our own — freedom of speech, freedom of the press. freedom ot conscience, the preservation of personal rights, the equality of all citizens before the law, and the faithful ob- ucrvunce of constitutional limitations.

"Gold monometallism Is a British policy, and Its adoption has brought other nations Into financial servitude to London. It la not only un-Am'crlcan, but anti-American, and It can be fastened on the. United States only by the stifling of that Indomitable spirit and love of liberty which proclaimed our political Independence in 1776 and won It In the war of the revolution. "•We demand the. free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of sixteen to one without waiting lortheald or consent of any other nation. We demand that the standard silver dpllar 'shall be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts, public and private, and we favor such legislation as will prevent the demonetization of any kind of legal tender money by private contract.

"We are opposed to the Issuing of Interest-bearing bonds of the United States In time of peace, and condemn the trafficking with banking syndicates, which, In exchange for bonds and at an enormous profit to themselves, supply the federal treasury with gold 'to maintain the policy of gold- monometallism. , •' "Congress alone has the power to coin and Issue money, and President Jackson declared that this power could not' be delegated to corporations or Individuals. We therefore demand that the power to Issue notes to circulate money be taken from the national banks, and that all paper money shall be Issued directly by the trcas- .ury department. Tariff and Taxation. "We hold that tariff duties .should be- levlcd for purposes of revenue, and that taxation should be limited by the needs of the government honcsfly and economically administered. We denounce as disturbing to business tho republican threat to ••restore' tho McKlnley law, 'which has been twice condemned by the' people 'In national elections/and which, enacted under the false plea of protection to home Industry, proved a" prolific breeder of trusts and monopolies, enriched the few at the expense of the many,, 'restricted trade and deprived the producers of the great American staples , of .access to their natural markets. Until the money question Is settled we are opposed, to anyagl- tatloji for ; further, changes In bur tarlrt laws, except such an are necessary, to make the deficit In revenue caused -by -the "adverse decision of the supreme court on tho Income tax. There would be no deficit In the revenue hut for the annulment by the supreme court of a law passed by a democratic congress In strict pursuance of the uniform decisions of that court for nearly 100 years, that court having sus- •talnaa constitutional objections to its enactment, which has been overruled by the- ablest Judges who had ever 'Sat' on that uench. We declare that It Is the duty of congress to use all the constitutional power which remains after that deqlsloh, or which may come from its reversal by the court as It may hereafter be constituted, so that the burdens of taxation may be equally and Impartially laid, to. the end that wealth may bear Its proportion of the expenses of the government.

We Invite the support &C all citizens who approve them and who desire to have them miiflft effective through legislation for the relief of the people and the restoration of the country s prosperity." Mr. Jllller, of Oregon, moved the adoption of the report of the sub-committee. This motion, however, was not pressed, a suggestion that the document be read by liaragraphs for discussion and amendment being agreed, to. Amendment Co Financial Plank. An amendment to the majority report of the committee on resolutions submitted by W, P. St. John, of New York, and offered by Mr. Thurman, of Ohio, .authorizing the Issue of coin certificates, was adopted in the following form: "And as a safeguard against money stringency the secretary of the treasury i'hall be empowered to issue such coin ccrtlflcatns additionally against deposit? of Interest-bearing bonds of the united States, the Interest accruing on tho bonds to Inure to the United States pending th« exchange for the coin certificates, which coin certificates when returned shall be canceled; provided, that such additional Issues ot coin certificates shall not reduco thft percentage of coin and bullion reserved for. coin certificates and sliver certificates below GO per cent, of the aggregate sum of coin certificates and silver certlflcates\ outstanding. The now outstanding sliver certificates, gold certificates and treasury notes of ISM to be retired as they como Intc the treasury." Amendment to Tariff Plunk. The tariff section was amended by making It read that such duties should be mad* to bear equally throughout the country' and not discriminate as to classes or sections. Several propositions to Insert statements •that the supreme court of the United States In Its income tax decision sustained constitutional objections which had been overridden by previous decisions for ;i hundred years, were voted down without discussion. For the declaration of the subcommittee In favor of the admission of New Mexico and Arizona was substituted a more formal one offered by the member from New Mexico, who Included tho District of Columbia as one of the corporation* that should be mode a state and. Included further a demand for local appointees to official position. This was agreed, to—18 to 16 over the objection of the member from South Carolina, who wanted the subcommittee's work to go through without amendment. .. A resolution demanding the admission of a delegate from Alaska Into congresn was agreed to—17 to H. The Cuban plank was mado- the subject of several motions for .amendment, BortiiKi to Indorae Cleveland. Senator. Hill, after the adoption of the motion to report the platform, moved tc add a paragraph commending the Intelligence, Integrity and faithfulness of the administration of President Cleveland, but half a 'dozen members moved to lay It on the table, and It was so ordered—29 to 17. So the platform carries no reference to the national administration. The platform was adopted by a vote ol 33 to 15. The proposition to declare In favor o) the restoration .of differential tonnage dues In favor of American vessels was submitted to the committee and lost. minority Heporti Prepared. Senator Hill, at this point, stated that he was ready to submit the views of the minority If the committee desired to hear them.
