Marriageable Youugr Men.

in our township, we now propose
to give to the young ladies and
old maids a list of the same.
Austin, F. G., old bach. Nev
er was known to go with but one
girl. He got discouraged be
cause his arms were not long
enough lo encircle her.
Ails, Wm., would make a good
husband for a country girl, but
thinks he has found her at Mic -eal's.
He keeps the road hot at
any rate. "1
Bagley, James, widower, would
say to the lady on the ridge, who
refused fo go sleigh riding with
him, he would make her a good
Bay, T., would make a jolly
good husband, or at least Effie
appears to think so.
Bay, C. We do believe he
wants a wife, because he can
cook, milk, and churn as well as
Bay, II , has returned from
France some time a,o, without
being s ip-wrecked. Ho will
make a good husband for some
Bay, Homer. Girls here is a
chance to court over the wire.
Bay, Y. Would make a good
husband if you could catch him
on the wing
Bay, E. Girls don't set your
cap for him, papa could not spare
Brown H., widower. Girls do
not forget him, he is quick on
foot and you will have to spy or
Miss B, will walk of with him.
Biown T., bachelor. Hard to
ba caught, but girls if you want
to build your own fires, cut your
own wood, pitch in.
Brown M lie seems to be cut
out for a good husband. Lucy
seems to be the at trad ion.
Brown I, telegraph operator.
Another chance, girls, to court
over wire. But it is feared Ida h
the strongest m gnet.
Craig F. Although, young we
think he would please some ias.

on the ridge.
Cagg E. Girls look out this is
a chance for some of you if you
are good on the run.
Dillinger T-., school teacher,
and newspaper correspondent.
Girls come early and avoid the
rush. A woman he wants and
must lu ve.
Campbell D. Here is your
chance, girls, to ride in the now
buggy. He would make a good
husband for some sweet sixteen-

him badly even to think of such
Shafer Zachariah. Well, I am
not certain about the name, but
Zachariaii will do. xot from
Stair, but from Fairfield. Old
bach., but from the way he has
been Frying, will not be much

Thompson W. We do not
think it worth whilo for any girl
lo set her cap for him. He will
be hard to catch, but Emma says
that, bhe intends to be the lucky
Thompson II. Young and ow
ly, and bo far has slipped the
Woodard L. Old bach. From
our knowledge of him we think
he would make an excellent hus
band. He can't ver well grow
old in his wife's service unless he
hurries matters along, because
his hair is already getting scarce'
i I suppose he thinks Ettie would
make home attractive. AVe agree
Conaway C. As fine a young
man as Starr affords. But it
seems as though he is afraid of
the girls. As this is leap year
some one may carry him off.
So ends, with some omissions,
the chapter. .

ted with the Evening Times un
der the Francisco and later man

paper to accept a position in the
postofBce department, which he
retained for several years, When
the News Journal was launched
he began work on it as a report
er, and in January, 1SS3, was
promoted to city editorship, which
he filled with satisfaction to all
concerned until his ill health
forced him to take a position in
volving less arduous duties. Last
October he became exchange and
literary editor, and though it
could be seen that he was losing
strength daily, he continued
bravely at his post until two
weeks ago, when he was unable
to reach the office. He made a
good record as a union soldier
during the war, and was a mem

charge of the funeral according
to the announcement in another
column. The members of the
order will meet a the Little Mi

nine o'clock and go out to Uuder
eliiTto attend the obsequies.
Mr. Gist was a kind hearted,
generous man, and a good journ
alist. Il was himself a ready
writer, and always conscientious
and accurate. Among his asso

he was among all who knew him.

Fit it I i of ourc!ioa3 System.
We school the children too
much; that is to say, we keep
them at School all the year round;
we continually force thtdr per
eptive and memorizing 'acuities
and give no time for thepiayof
their reflective faculties. In oth
er words, they don't reflect upon
what they have learned or at
tempt to apply it in their own
minds. We cram them with too
many slndi s. How else is the
fact to be accounted for that a
child in the country, having but
four months schooling in the
year, will come to boston morej
matured in his education, than
one who has had nine months
schooling in the year? In our
city schools there is too much
teaching and too little learning.
By that I mean to say that the
great press of studies placed up
on the young mind by oral teach
ings for a few minutts at a time,
and a different study most every
hour in the day. tend to break
up the continuity of the pupil's
thought, and the oral addresses
and lectures receive but .-"tile at
tention from the tired minds of
Parson Talui.igo preached on

it has persuaded the world that
it has "struck tho impossible,"

fact that the dead are ours.'5

3IEANT TO BE EXPERIMENTAL
takes the nia'ter in the spirit of
a philosopher in Tact stoically
so. He said in a conversation on
. '! would have preferred to re
tain my seat in the Senate for
another term, but it did not seem
so ordered; so I am satisfied."
In reply to a question, the Sen
ator Baid :
"I know that my interest in
the preparation and passage of
the civil service bill was made
the base of bitter and vindictive
attack, and it is evident that my
views and those of many others
prominent in affairs did not ac
conhoii that subject. The theory
is undoubtedly correct, but I
have no doubt in fact, I am con
vinced that we have not yet
reache i the best system, and in
deed, the present system, which
I never regarded in any other
light than as experimental and
iniative, I can now see is very
defective, ami should be revised
and amended. It is possible that
what merit the present system
may have has not been thorough
ly grasped and, in the details ol"
administration, has beenuniulel
"There is no disguising the fact
that the people as a mass, look
upon the offices of the govern
ment as beloning to them as a
sovereign powor, and any system
calculated to wbridge their rights
in that direction, either in theory
or practice, will be resented. My
view of the snbieel is that the re
form of the civil service is need
ed in placing such safeguards
around it, so that place of pub
lic truM. shall only be givni to
competent and responsible per
sons. The history of the pas!
sustain this. We certainly mut
retain the Democratic spirit of
our Government, which is a gov
ernment of the people, fo the
people by the people There
fore a civil service mint have
reference to this fact. I never
had any other view. If the pre
sent system does not meet the
requirmeuts of the subject it can
be amended and improved."
