If you thSnk a house should have
only one bead, and that be yours,
postpone Jrour wedding indefinitely.
There Is an old saying to the ef
fect that an untidy mother has dis
obedient children, and, while neither
parents or children may realize the
why or wherefore of it, yet there is
-always a lack of respect and an in*
?iifierence to the authority of a
mother who takes no pride in her
The meanest men in the world are
'those who have allowed themselves
to drift away from their mothers
and forget all about them. The
beat and bravest men in the world
are those who havd never been so
proud as when doing something
pleasant for the kind old mother.
Who does not feel more cheerful
and contented for receiving a polite
bow, a genial "good morning," a
hearty shake of the hand? Who
does not make himself the happier
by these little expressions of fellow
feeling and good will? Silence and a
stiff, unbending reserve are especial
ly selfish and essentially vulgar.
There la a certair. species of rep
tile found in all parts of the known
world; its home is not so much in
the jungles and wildreness, as one
might suppose. This seprent fre
quents the haunts of men, showing
by this that it is of a sociable char
acter; cities, villages, and the
sparsely populated neighborhood,
each and all claim its attention. The
name of this serpent is slander. We
hope it has no abiding place in the
home of my of our readers. The
Home Circle department is the best
antidote yet discovered for this vile
xeptile, and seldom foils to drive It
from the home by its weekly visits.
The woman whose life-book has
love written on every page; who
mgkes a home for a man, a home
in a house and in a heart, a home
that he Is sure of, a homo that is
fuli of; love presided over by one
"whose price is above rubies. She
!}s the model wife.
Parents make their great mis
takes in their training of children,
by not recognizing their individual
ity. Each child has peculiarities
in mind, temperament, disposition
and character which makes it an in
dividual problem. Mothers in la
menting the failure of home discip
line sometimes say, "I am sure I
cannot understand it; I have always
triea to do my duty by them, and
have always treated my children ex
actly alike." Therein lies the very
secret of her failure; she has not
realied their individuality; she has
made the mistake of using the same
formula for different, problems; she
has sought to move distinctly differ
ent locks by the same key. The
same sun melts wax and hardens
Of all the evls prevailing among
young men we know of none more
blighting in its moral effects than
the tendency to speak slightingly of
the virtue of women. Nor is there
anything in which young men are
so thoroughly mistaken as the low
estimate they form of the integrity
of women?not of their own moth
ers and sisters, *i;hank God, but of
others, who, they forget, are some
body else's mothers and sisters.
There is .no question that a child
can seriously and fairly ask that
cannot be as seriously and fairly
answered. To tell a child or to lead
it to infer that It is "too little" to
know anything more on any subject
about which it already knows
enough to frame a question, is to
deny its capacity for further growth.
It is to thrust the child's mind into
a dungeon, instead of opening it to
We do know why any one should
object to a wife calling her husband
by his first, name when among
friends, but is is seldom regarded
as good form to do so excepting in
the presence of relatives. No one,
however, can object to Mr. Smith
or Mr. White. And don't say 'Smith'
for "Mr. Smith." If you want to call
your husband "Darling" or "Love,"
pray do so as often as you like, but
always in the privacy and seclusion
of your own homes. The people who
"Love" and "Dove" and "Darling"
eachvother in company are often the
very ones who call each other by
strangely difierent names when at
Success is never obtained in a
country like this without effort, df
you fail once, try again. If you fall
down, get up. If it is dark, strike a
light. If you are in the shade move
around; if there is shade on one
side there is sure to be sunshine on
the other. It takes longer to skin
an elephant than a mouse, but then
the skin is worth something. Nev
er be content with doing what an
other has done?excel him.
Don't wait till some one is gone
from you to tell their virtues. Don'1,
wait until your sister is far away in
another land to tell how helpful,
how pretty or how courteous she
is; and don't wait until the weary
hands aro crossed and the long sleep
comes before you make mother
know what a beautiful blue are her
eyes, how tender her heart, and
how dearly you love her. Tell It all
now?now, when the walk through
life is hard, and the sunshine of

Dots From Magnolia.
As I have not seen a word from
Magnolia since the Bazaar I will tell
you something as it turned out so
r.icely. We had quit" a large crowd
and I can say more than that it was
the best behaved crowd I have seen
in a long time. Was enjoyed by all
little folks as well as grown ones.
The refieshments were fine and plen
tiful. The sale did well, had a lot
of beautiful as well as useful things
to sell prepared by the ladies. Then
we had one of the best men in the
county to sell them. I will give you
his name if you v on't tell him, it
was Thomas Bolin of Neeses that lib
tie feilow, who doesn't weign but
250 pounds gross. He just made
those boys pay the price for things,
but failed to sell the nicest thing in
the lot. Now I want some of the
readers of this paper to make a bid
on it through this paper. It is a log
cabin quilt, made of silk and velvet
lined with nice quality sateen pre
pared by one of the members of
Pleasant Hill Church for whioh
they are raising money to repair and
paint. Have had some offers but not
enough, would be glad for anyone
to give a nice price for it.
iSchool commenced at Magnolia
last week with Miss Funchus ab
teacher had quite a small turnout
as the children have to help gather
cotton, it seems ;tat there is no
help to be had in this settlement,
but the caterpilers are playing hav
oc with the young cotton, eating; all
the leaves and the tender bolls so
that it cuts off a good deal of cotton
that the children would have to pick.
People are getting on slowly picking
with all the ihelp they can get.
iMrs. Ken Fullniore is improving
at last, after a long spell of Typhoid
fever. We have had several cases
in our settlement, mostly negroes,
but all are improving.

says: "Mrs. Julia Barro Kibler, re
lict of D. W. T. Kibler, died on Fri
day afternoon, at the residence of
her son-im-law, Dr. J. A. Simpson,
at Prosperity, at the age of 79 years

weeks with heart disease, ten years'
after the death of her husband:"
Mrs. Kibler was the mother of Mrs.
U. F. Bryant, of this city.
They Had a Damp Time.
Tuesday was circus day and it was
also drizzily, ?irazily day. Showers
fell off and on all day, and the
grounds, and the tent, and in fact
everything connected with tre circus
and the people who attended the
show, had a pretty damp time.

and to warm and encourage the pil

Let the sunshine into the gloomy
rooms, have a conch to lie on, a
piano to play on; in fact, a home
to live in; one wherein a sense of
hospitality and good cheer exudes
from the very tables and chairs, in
stead of a mausoleum of gloomy
elegance, wht rein everything is for
showtand nothing to be used.

When to Look for Frost.
The average date for the fist kill
ing frost of the fall in this vicinity
is about November S. That is the
record of the weather bureau at
Columbia. A record for twenty-five
years shows that the earliest date at
which a killing frost was observed
in Hhis section was October 19, 1S9G,
and during this samo period, the
[ear in which the frost waited long
est to come was 1902, when it was
the 2?sth of November before the
deadly crystals appeared on the fields
in this vicinity.
