Education is iba knowledge
derived from a course of study.
A good education is one of
the few things ia ibis worli,
which cn not be taken from
man, and is of inestimable val
ue to the posseseor The youth
of the present day enjoy a
great advantageous? their fore
fathers and the young people of
past years, and we are glad to
see that they are not so blind
to their own interests as to
r.eglect this privilege, which
ihey shouid esteem so highly.
For (he past fw yars in
wlikhr- we.have been per
mitted to notice, the youth of
our country have been taking
an interest and working seal
ously to reap the harvest which
is offered and to benefit by the
ree gi:t of auniversal educa

perous state proffors to its ris

Iii our own county we see it
appreciated as it should be.

report of our county examiners
which shows that our ladies
and gentlemen, from the ages
of sixteen to tventy-one, are
making application and stand

eighteen months. This speaks
well for our boys and girls.
Although some may not be
successful the first attempt, ii
is no disgrace to l'a(l Examin

character now from, what they
were twenty five years ago. A
gentleman of my acquaintance,
now perhaps, fifty years of age,
who has tauirlit school in thu

counties, said, "that bis certifi

to the residence of one of the
Board of Examiners to ascer

ii iend found him on his 'arm in
a sugar camp. Uaving in
formed him of his errand, the
examiner said that he would
propose a problem, and if he
would solve it satisiactoiily he
would grant him a certificate.
Having agreed to this, a new,
poplar, sugar trough was turn
ed over, the bark stripped oft.
and a pencil given to tlie ap
plicant. The problem was pro
posed, solved satisfactoril,v,mid
the certificate granted. In tliif

a novel proceeding. But lime
brings changes. Our examin

which would be sure to give

Making and Enjoying Money.
All men may coma to com
petence, not all men to wealth
or riches. Nearly all mem
Uenry Ward Beecher says,who
go into the field expecting
great riches are doomed to dis
appointment. For there is a
genius lor earning ia some men
who have not the genius for
keeping what they have earn
ed. There are home men that
will make money anywhere and
anyhow. Of those that will
make money there are proba
bly but lew who naturally
know how to keep it. Alas,
there are a great many good
men who do not know how to
keep it. Tne power of money
making is Hot in ratio to the
general thinking power. A
man may be able to tbiuk as a
geographer, or aB a historian,
or as a mathematician and yet
not be able to make money.
To look at things and see their
scientific relation is one thing
and to see their marketable re
lation is another. Many men
have that ability, and such men
will amass large property with
great facility. The great ma
jority of mankind will, liowev
er, amass only a competence,
or. enough to satisfy their daily
wants, for the education of
their household, and perhaps a
little over, and that is all. But
i hat is enough. If a man does
not find he is amassing money,
let him not despair. A man
may be very happy and yet
not very rich. Indeed to be
very lich is not the royal road
tobiippiness justuow. It does
not require near so much as
many imagine. Only abou' as
much has a direct relation to
the general happiness ot the
possessor. The rest of the
property, if there be more, re
lates to the injury of the owner
I think a German or a French
man will exirart more happi
ness out of an income ol $1,000
;t year than an ordinary Amer
ican will out of $20,000. I
iliink we do not know how to
use it fur the production ol
happinpss. This is an art yet
to be learned by Americans.

give him Ihe benefit of your
experience and criticism. When
be has mastered this give him
another. In our own case, we
owe our love for farming prin

was doing on the farm; answer

The tendency on the part of
the law-makera is steadily to
ward mitigation of the condi
lion of the poorer classes. The
time is within the recolection
ol many readers, when imprls
onment for debt was rigorously
enforced in Ohio; and when
this was abolished, a great etec
was taken in the direction of
humanity. Soon after, in pur
suance of the same policy, the
Legislature began to relieve
needy debtors by exempting
one article of property alter
another from sale under exe
cution. By an act passed April
15th, 1863, (his list is still fur
