HE senate and House
are playing tit for tat
at the people's expense. The
senate will pass a bill and
send it over to the House,
which body, instead of ratify

way kill it; next day the
House will adopt a measure
and send it to the senate
where it also receives a knock
out blow. Perhaps it is well,
for fewer laws will be passed
the fewer the better.

the governor affixes his sig

Its main provisions are that
after May ist, 5903, no child
under io years of age shall bejJ
employed in any factory^-after

THE latest bid from the
Republicans for the
colored vote, where such a
vote is cast, was the bill intro
duced by Hanna in the nati
onal congress providing for a
pension for all ex-slaves over
50 years of age. This is about
as much a delusion as was
the promise of "40 acres and
a mule." It will never become
a law because its passage
would mean that several hun
dred millions of dollars would
be paid out in the south, to
which the Republicans would
never consent. Being a poli

FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILD.
BY MRS. J. M. HUNTER.
HE was a bright, hand
some little fellow of
lix or seven years, at least
that was my impression as he
came bounding into the cozy
sitting room, where his mother
and I sat engaged in earnest
conversation. Catching sight
of me, he paused for a mo
ment, and then rushed up to
his mother with, "Say, mam
ma, I'm going over to see Jim
Morris; he called me across
the street, and Pm goin?
over." I noticed that he did
sk permission to go, but
have a jolly show, and he
wants me to come, and
going" and with that he was
off, before the little woman
could offer further remon
A troubled look came into
her face as she said, "I'm sure
I don't know what is to be
done with Freddie ! Such as
sociations will ruin him, but
he pays no attention to my
Ah, I reflected, another
instance where family gov
ernment is only "a govern
ment of persuasion," and
when that fails, as it usually
does, nothing more is done.
My heart yearned over the
bo> as 1 thought what he
might be made if properly re
strained, and what he would
surely become if allowed to
go on in his own way. How
many otherwise good moth
ers, like this one, have not
firmness to exercise the need
ed discipline with their chil
dren ! Often the very tone
in which they speak to the
child, says pkirly ; "I know
you are not going to obey,
but I'll just tell you what you
ought to do, and then if you
won't mind, I can't help it."
Punishment, they say, ''is
too cruel to be thought of."
O, dear parents, is it not
much more cruel to allow your
children to go on in the evil
ways that will at last lead to
eternal punishment! Is it not
your duty to enforce your right
ful authority, and see that
your instructions are carried
out ? Why did God deal as
he did with Eli ? Because
his sons did evil and he "res
strained them not." No
doubt he instructed, advised
and persuaded, but this was
enough. He should have re
strained. "Foolishness is
bound in the heart of a child,
but the rod of correction
shall drive it far from him."
Inherent sin is too strong to
be overcome simply by mild
words of advice and persua
A case in point is that of a
mother who gently requested
her young son to bring in
some wood. He flatly re
fused; and then she only said :
"Now, Artie, be a pretty boy,
and do as mamma tells you."
But Artie was not ambitious to
"be a pretty boy" and so the
crrn.ii-Lu criTru uT^ii?nn\KtttT~iifc'r
self brought it in.
That boy has grown to
manhood; but he is a great

not work MT suffering was intense. Physicians tr-au-l mc. without permanent
relief however. Tried a number of advertised remedies without permanent
benefit. Finally I tried "RHKOUAOIDK.-' It did tho work, and I have had ex
