LooKrxa Areas. A lew days since
a buxom woman brought to the regis
ter, Cwllis a. will made by her 'hus
band, and which she desired to file for
probate. "When did he die-?" inquired
the sympathetic clerk to whom the doc
ument was handed. "Why, bless you,"
responded the woman, "he ain't dead
yet, but he gave me that (pointing to
tht will), and he drinks n quart of
liquor every day, and I guess," con
tinued she, with a laugh, "he'll play
out in about three months." The of
ficer had no more to say, and quietly
filed away the will.
Naughty Practice. Jt is undoubt
edly a bad practice for persons living in
second stories, to be hawking and spit
ting out of their windows. More es
pecially is this abhortag when it emi-
nates from windows Immediately above
business rooms, where there 's a con
tinual going In and out. So uncon
cerned and thoughtless arc some that
they quirt tobacco Juice in every direc
tion, and If It should happen to strike
on any one, it's all the same to them. A
certain gentleman was passing under
a window, the other day. ne heard the
hawk, and knowing what wa coming
be started .to run, but just got under the
far window when he felt that he had
run the wrong direction and caught
about a tablespoonfnl of mucous on the
back of hU fine coat. Tho fellow isn't
quite as mad as ha was.
Reading Room. Ho money could be
better Invested in the town of Mlllers-
burg, In a benevolent way, than in the
establishment of a Reading Raom for
the young men of our town. A place
that would be made attractive and a desirable-
place of resort, would do much
toward drawing them away from places
of evil influences, and -would tend to
prevent them from falling into habits
of dissipation. Too many young men
are compelled to frequent saloons and
other places of iniquity from want of a
better and more respectable place of re
sort. We hope our citizens will not
overlook this matter, and should not
fall to remember that they are not do
ing their whole duty, unless they erect
some such barrier against the tide
which is sweeping so many young men
down Into the sea of intemperance and
destruction. Furnish them a pleasant
room, warm fires', and plenty of good
literature and an eccaslonal lecture or
social entertainment, and our word for
It, you have cut off one of the strongest
holds that this disreputable liquor traf
fic has upon them. Let us furnish them
a respectable nlace ot resort by al
means, and at as early a day as possible
Tzjjpebaxce Hovement. The work
ers in the temperancercausc artstill
busily engaged In their work.; The
prayer meetings are sept np tn
weekly. Oocasionallythc ladies come
out on the itrc-et-anil hold their meet
ings ou the pavement asnsual. These
prayer meetings arc earnest, and will
no doubt do great Rood. The Friday
evening's Mass Meeting was very large
ly attended, the hall being filled to
overflowing. Mrs. Dr. Blghaxu presi
ded. The meeting- was opened with
prayer by Eev, . The first speech
of the evening was David F. Ewing Esq.,
who discussed the license question at
some length. His arguments were to
the point, and carried the conviction
with them that license is not what the
people of this state want- -"We heard
onlya portion' of bis speech, and con
sequently cannot give a fall account o'f
hi3 arguments: ' "
The burden of his address was that
license was not what the temperance
loving people of the State wanted ; that
it was the dealers in liquors and their
friends that favored this proposition.
MrfBa'dgley followed witlra few
pointed remarks. He made Eome ex
planations, in reference to what was
said -on- the previous Friday fewping,;
ana the misrepresentations or the Far
mer last week. He stated that it only
showed the weakness 'of tlie-ofher side
when they were obliged to' use slang
and slanderous language instead of ar
guments. Such language as the editor
of the Farmer used tends only to dis
gust his readers, and-weafcen 'the cause
which he desires to. uphold. He then
related Jlr.LIncoin's'Uog story, which
brought down the house.
After him, Eev. Mr. Hoffman, of
Shrevc, entertained the- 'audience with
a few practical and' poiuied remarks.
After some other business, the audience
was dismissed, feeling: that, another
good night's work wns done'.-
On Mondaythe Iadtesr -were engaged
in circulating a couple of petitions lor
signatures, one asking the Council of
Millersbiirg to pats an ordinance to
prevent the' gale of liquor of all kindi
in our town. The other, asking the
"Constitutional Convention" not to in-
sert.ajicense clause in the Constitution.;
These petitions were numerously signed
by our citizens. The petition to
Council was handed In on'llonday af
ternoon at the Mayor's office, but as we
understand, no action has yet been ta
ken upon it, other than "referring it to
committee ol the new Councilmen
elect, without stating when they should
report. We trust it will be reported
back favorably in .a. short time, and
acted upon. We wait patiently the re
sult. In the mean time the friends of
temperance will work, watch, pray and
wait. ' r '
Style ix Wjtnxxa. The best writer
is he who can convey the clearest
thoughts in the shortest space. Some
writers so hide their thoughts in use
less words that It becomes a task after
you have read a column to comprehend
its meaning. Ornament in style is good
when it beautifies the thoughts ad
vanced; it is Inexcusable when it covers
them from sight. A writer, before he
touches a pen, should first get a clear
idea of the subject he U to handle; this
well understood, his next effort should
be to say what he has to say in the few
est words possible. We would not have
single thought dwarfed by a stingy
use of language but even this would
be better than "to see' it choked out of
existence by a superabundance of words.
Write to the point, and when you have
reached it; stop. It requires severe
mental- training- to acquire that' sim
plicity of expression which conveys to
us the grandest thoughts in the fewest
words, yet it i3 within the province of
all to approach tf not to equal It. It has
been said that It is more difficult to
abridge an article than to write one,
that it requires more time to write a
short article well than to present the
same thoughts in double the space.
When Queen Anne told Dr. South that
bis sermon had only one fault that of
being, too short he replied1 that he
should have made- it. shorter if.ho had
had marc time. Iiet our writers es
pecially these of the press boil down
their efforts before they present them
to the public. In this fust age the. man
who can say the best things in the
shortest space is not far removed from
public benefactor. ;

MTIIAN'S mONOGKAruVhas hitherto
been considered tfce shortest, most perfect and
rapid system ofShort-hand AVritlng . it, how
erer, has several and importantderccts: being
didcult to learn on account of its numerous
rules, with an array of exceptions to tbem,
and from the fact teat several sounds have a
multiplier? of signs, which are apt to delay
and confuse even an experienced writer, who
has to think which form be should use when
he ought to be free from all thought except as
to what the speaker is saying. These defects,
and the necessity or a more simple and uni
form system, have led to the perfection of a
new system known as EDEOGUArllY, (de
rived from two Greek words meaning pleatant
urltinff,) which is freo from all irregularities,
and is much easier, and thirty per cent, short
er than PITXAJi'S. The whole principle of
this new art may be acquired In a few days,
aud a month's practice o'f one hour daily in
reading and writing will enable any one to
useit with facility. The "1I.VNUKL OF ED-
