learn that this state of affairs exists for when you see a live town with a good school a good live faculty and interest taken in the work by the pupils you may safely say that town is in the lead A great deal of interest has been manifested in the high school on account of the 200 reward offered byMrinterest in the school offered that amount of money to the Valedictor- iAn of the graduating

excellent mansion which he has recently built and paid for and fitted out andl sigh 0 that I were a rich man I Get angry with your neighbor an think you have not a friend in the world Shed a tear or two and take a walk in the cemetery and keep continually saying to yourself When shall I be buried here Sign a note for a friend and never forget your kindness and every hour in the day whisper to yourself I wonder if he will ever pay that note I I think everybody means to cheat you Closely examine every bill you take and doubt its being genuine until you have put your neighbor to i great deal of louble Put confidence in nobody and believe every man you deal with to be a rogue Never accommodate if you can possibly help it Buy as cheap as you can and screw down to the lowest cent Grind the faces and the hearts of the unfortunate Brood over your misfortunes your lack of talents and believe that at no distant day you will come to want Let the workhouse be ever in your mind with all the horrors of distress and poverty Follow these recipes strictly and you will be miserable to your hearts contentIfwe may so speak sick at heart and at variance with the world Nothing will cheer or encourage you nothing will throw a gleam of sunshine or a ray of warmth into your heart You will be an isolated creature a per feet picture of woe discontent and despair THE FOLLY OF TilE OAT There is a dreadful ambition abroad for being genteel We keep up appearances too often at the expense of honesty and tho we may not be rich yet we must seem to be respectable though only in the meanest sensein mere vulgar show We have not the courage to go patiently onward in the condition of life in which it has pleased God to call us but must needs in some fashionable state to which we ridicu lously please to call ourselves and all to gratify the vanity of that unsubstantial genteel world of which we form a part There is a constant struggle and pressure for front seats in the social amphi theatre in the midst of which all noble self denying resolve is trodden down and many fine natures are inevitably crushed to death What waste what misery what bankruptcy come from all this ambition to dazzle others with a glare of apparent worldly success we need not describe The mischievous results show themselves in a thousand waysIn the rank frauds committed by men who dare to be dishonest but do not care to seem poor i and in the desperate dashes at fortune in which the pity Is not so much for those who fail as for the hundreds of Innocent families who are so cften involved in their ruin What

against the Ten nessee Copper Company and the Dutchtown Sulphur and Copper Com pany restricting those companies from the operation of their smelters at Dutohtown Tenn The smelters are close to the Georgia line and that State declared that the fumes spurting from their stacks proved a menace to the health of its citizens vegeItattoo for a radius of fifty miles The decision was a peculiar one the bench holding that the case was not on the same footing as though It were between private parties The ruling was that jr its sovereign capacity the State has an interest independent of and behind the title of the citizens in all the earth and air within its dominion For that reason the court held that Georgia had a perfect right to receive an injunction to prevent the loss to its physical well being and for the pro tection of the health of its citizens A Well Known Fact That no skin diaejue whether from lnumAt or external origin can lung germicidreZEMO destro1thealwa cure Writ foraamplt

has actually penetrated through a solid brick simply by the force of its own growth and came through healthy on the other side It seems that the brick was imbedded solidly into the top of the soil and that a seed was burled some inches beneath it When the seed put forth a sturdy sprout it slowly week by week ground its way through the resisting sand and clay of the brick and Aoally emerged on the
