so extravagant and eut them so short
that Wo can see the tops of your stock

c n walk and clear the dust, and do
not expose your persons. Have your

yourselves, in the strictest sense ol' the

seta good example before the rising

comely clothing, and act in all things
so that you eau respect yourselves and

An old negro was much troubled
about his sins. Perceiving him one day

the cause. " Oh, massa, I am such a

A SOCIABLE KENTUCKIAN.-In 18G3,
General Magruder had camped at a
comfortable place and made his head
quarters at a country house with broad,
cool verandas. Dinner for him-elf and
staff was placed on the table, when a
reckless young Kentuckian passed by,
looked at the spread, and liking it,
quietly sat down, regardless of the com

said Magruder sternly, " do you know

"Company," replied the Kentuckian,
