Men of any character can not escape
the praise or blame of public opinion.
Every public deed invites judgment,
and it usually -lls, forth expression.
What we do or say, if. it have vitality
beyond our own organism, goes before
the court of public opinion for trial.
Sentence is passed either for, or against.
Nature has so endowed us with con
science that we are not indifferent to the
character of the sentence. Only the
shameless depise the opinion of their
follows. Public opinion is generall7
correct-after a time. We must give it
time to think. It will not, except it be
raised or lowered to a frenzy, decide
hastily. The measure it makes and pre
serves of a man Is not far from the cor
rect standard. Give a man time and be
finds his level in the community. Sc
give public opinion a few days in whicl
to get rid of the smoke and prejudice
of the present moment, and its conclu.
sion will not miss the mark of merit:
Especially is this true of the ability ani
character of men. Precedents and " old
facts " may be changed by a better ap
preciation of the right, and by a wide:
application of knowledge. But wit1
men it is not often so. The living gen

that g'the course of three years she wasl

This sentiment was arived at by
Hawthorne thirty years ago just after
he had taken an excursion through the
British Museum. He came outof the
marvelous place be*ildered and de
pressed. His quick mind had taken in at
a glance the countless objects of knowl
edge spread out before it in this museum.
He could see the vast range, but knew
that he could not compass it.
There it was that he felt "life is short
and art is long." When he went to his
room after the ramble he wrote in his
Note BCok: , "It is a hopeless, and to
me, generally, a depressing business, to
go through an immense, multifarious
show like this, glancing at a thousand
things, and conscious of some little titil
lation of mind from them, but really
taking in nothing." There are minds
one often comes in contact with which
are spacious museums of knowledge.
We say they know everything. Their
minds are of the encyclopaedean order.
Every cranny of their mental storehouso
is stuffed with facts. Their memory is a
scroll which never gets done unrolling
On and on it comes. We know these
tiresome people who know everything,
and escape them when we can. Who
cares always to be in the society of per
sons who are perpetually exnding ac
quired information? It is usually the
character of these human knowledge
boxes that they possess little or no orig
inality. They must tell us many facts
we did not know, but they are given out
in such a dry, cheerless manner, that one
hears them without receiving them.
Here is where our system of education
has so far been a partial failure. It has
been conducted mainly on the cramming
process. Only ai it has broken away
from this has it been successful.
The -mind which has learned to think
will, as Lord Bacon said, always find
plenty of "stiff" on which to exercise
. its powers. Very few who know every
f thing can do anything well. They can
accomplish a feat mechanically; but
'f they n give it no riginality. What
ever they do will be in imitation. Charles
Sumner is said to have known so many
e things that the immensity of his knowi
i edgo was a burden upon him. When he
efamlle to speak he iardly knew what to
omit from his great storehouse. He was
a man of genius, and coild light up his
words. Wobster know much less than
Sumner, but his mind was alive and
touched every subject with originality
and new life. A free, active mm that
has been tamght to think for itself will
create, but the mind thatia dull with too
much knowledge wvill model and imitate.

Long Rows In the Garden.
Works on gardening give plans for
laying out the ground-certain beds to
be pult in one place, with paths here and
there. This is all well in order to make
the most of a small piece of ground.
With the farmer's garden the case is
different, as there are fewv farms where a
square rod or two more or loss in the
garden is of importance. In such '
garden there should be very few beds.
but all the larger vegetables should be
placed in ionig, straight rows, in order
that the working may be done, so far as
practicable with a hors" cultivato?. The
permanent beds, suchJ? those of rhu
barb and asparagus, should be near one
.another and at one side of the land to be
occupied by the annual crops. In sow
ing or planting it, thie cultivator used
upon the farm is also to do work in the
garden ;this isato be borne in mind in
laying out the rows1 which should be at
such distances as will allow of the pass
age of the implement. In going to or
coming from farm work, the cultivator
may often take a few turns in the gar
den. Those who have never tried horse-I
power in the g1arden will be surprised
as the geat help it ilain keeping it in
proper order, and it will ofar to do

to be dolivared in this style. On those

Some great scholars are so pompous
that they can not* preach as if to ordi

but, because they are such great men,
do not stop short of an hour and a half.
This may impress the weary hearers
with a sense of greatness, but at the
same time oppresses them with the
ponderousness of it.

Phases of the Indian question.
The Black Hills country was included
in the treaty of 1868, with the Sioux, by
which the territory "lying between the
northern boundary of Nebraska and the
forty-sixth parallel, and bounded on the
east by the Missouri, and west by the
one hundred and fourth degree of west
longitude, together with the reservations
then existing on the east side of the
Missouri, was set apanrt for the absolute
and undisturbed use and tecupation of
the Sioux for their permanent home."
Ini 1874 General Custer's exploring ex
peCdition visited the Black Hills, and in
1875 a scientific expedition under Prof
fessor Walter P. Jenney, accompanied
by a military escort under Colonel Richard
I. Dodge, of the United States army.
These expeditions disclosed the fact that
the, Black Hills country, rich in mines,
timber, and grazimg, was unused by the
Indians in whose reservation the territory
was situated. After them wvhites poure'd
into the country, against the orders of
General Crook, whose troops were too
few in niumber to keep them out, and
whenl once in, it was impossible to dis
lodge them. In the fall of 1875 a council
was assembled at Red Cloud Agency to
negotiato the purchase of the country,
but concluded without making any ar
rangemenits with the Indians, who be
came restless, dep~redations followed, the
disal'ected left the agencies and joined
in what has become known as the " Sit
ting hull movement," and the war of
1876, led by Crazy Horse and other
Sioux chiefs, resulted in the subduing of
the tribes then on the war-path. In the
mneanwhile the Black Hills had been
rapidly settled, rich mines had been
found, towns built, counties organized,
and1( thousands of p~eople had made homes
in the hills. 'There have been many
estimates of the number of Indians that
were, in 1700, in wvhat we now know a
the United States, but none are satis

their number vary widlely, the census of
1870 plIacing them at about 350,000,
while others offer estimates which show
that the Indian population is abonit 200,

Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
Nitocris, the spouse of Nebuchadnez-.
zar, is described by M. Blaudrillart as the
soul of his works, and to her is attributed
the design of the lake named after her,
which served the double purpose of a
fortification and a dam against the Eu
p~hrates when in flood. The famous
hanging gardens are also attributed to a
female influence, to the~ longing of a
Median princesa, born in a more ele
vated region, for the coloness and shade
of her native mountains. There were
five of these gardens, about four En
glish acres each, on terraces supported
by columns and covered wvith meld thick
enough for the largest trees to take root
mn it. One of the columns was hollow,
and contained a hydraulic machine to
raise the required quantity of water.

CORINTH. MISS., April 2, 1877.
Capt. W. P. Ellis, Bailey Springs, Ala.
Dear Sir--It gives me pleasure to
state the result of the use of Bailey
waters in my case. I had for several o
years been the victim of Chronic lDi- a"
arrhcon. The ekhausting discharges,
and absence of assimilation of food, with ot
painful ulceration of the bowels, hadm
reduced me from vigorous health to tu
an almost .hopeless condition. My phy.. ~
sician advised a trial o4 the celebrated aj
Bailey waters. In a few days after my 6
aririval the functions of the liver and
Kidneys were favorably affected, my
digestion became comfortable, the ir- a~,
ritable condition of my bowels rapidly
disappeared, and a comfortable state ofI
health soon establised. This occured
two years ago, and I have ever since en
joyed good health. I attribute my re
covery entirely to the medical virtues
of Bailey Springs.gLVery Respectfully,*
D. S. MA LON~E.
