You may do some men ten thousand
favors and treat them with every cuur
Lcy aud coimidnration, and yet the
first opportunity they get, they show
i heir ingratitude and narrowness of
mind. A v iper displays eu,uul sense
and magnanimity- if yon attempt to
controvert or disagree with tnein,
whctin-r on political, religious, tem
pc ranee or any subject, you gain their
itninKiMty and they become our ene
my until some favor is again wanted;
Uu'ii, like a codling moth, they try to
mg.Hlirtle themselves once more and
girt your good will by appearing meek
und" rt-gifciful. Sueli vermin are con
temptible. Men of broad liberal views,
men who have brains large euough to
not bei-uine petulant cranks aud exhibit
a spiteful, vindictive disposition
because they are unable to hare every
thing their own way, are the ones that
distances all other in the race of life.
The above picture fits, just a few
nrouud this town, so well that we can
not refrain from printing it, however
they are so thoroughly marked uow,
thut their hycophaulic whining will
be fully understood iu the future.
Of the many strange wills that are
made by wMilthy people to control the

wlliD,'"', and decrccH that, with the
au-pthm uf a carpet and a stove given
to her daughter, andqMJD to hergraud
n, the entire amount ihall he devo
