A Word to Merchants.
The first ble of cotton came to town yes
~erday, and this one will be followed by;
any more. The people that make cotton(
re people that buy such things as our mer
~hants keep for sale, and it would be to thet
dvantage of the merchant to advertise his
rares through the papers, so that people
aay know before leaving home with whomt
hey expect to trade. It is folly to think
hat people do not take time to read adver
isements: they do, and it is very often thet
ase that a farmer before leaving his homer
akes up a list of the goods he desires tot
urchase from the advertisements he finds
n his county paper.
The mission of a county paper is not on
y to let the people know what is going on,
~ut also to let them know who can offer thea
~est bargains, and when they see that at
erchant has the go-aheaditiveness to ad-e
ertise his goods they at once come to the
onclusion that he is trying to out-do his
ompetitors, and, to carry out his purpose,
argains await them by giving him a trial.
'The MaNxxxxG TDIES justly claims to be I
e best advertising medium in the coun
.y. We not only have a large circulation,

To mention in detail all the qualifications

>e to enumerate many qualifications which
ew of us possess, and many duties which
;ery few teachers perform. We shall there
ore mention only a few which in our judg
neut are indispensable and most important.
The first, and one* that is absolutely nee
~ssary, is that the teacher should himself be
Ste believer in the Triune God and a
xnsistent member in some branch of the
-hristian church; that he should be familiar
vith the leading doctrines of the church,
t as to be able to tell the children what he
2elieves and why in such plain lang-mge
hat their minds may comprehend. To ac
omlhishi this ho should make himself fat
niiar with the scriptures in order to sup
>rt his statements by a "Thus saith the
~ord." He shoul haLve an amiable dispo
ition and be "apt to teach," possessing a
lever tact in communicating to others the
ruth in, his own mind, making it clear by
His heart, in the second place, should be
n his work, having an ear'nest desire to
raw the children to Christ, and this he
houl strive to do not only by precept on
he Sabbath while engaged with his class,
1ut also by a consistent christian walk and
onversation during the week, thus proving
hat he is sincerely and deeply in earnest in
egard to their spiritual and eternal welfare.
A Sunday-school teacher should during
he week study the topics of the lesson and
aake himself as familiar as possible with
he truth to be developed from it. He should
ake every effort to be punctually at his
lost every Sabbath at the hour for opening
chool, and should adopt the best methods
Le can to cause the children to he prompt
Iso. Perhaps there is nothing more attrac
ive to the children than a well selected cir
In hearing the lesson it is wvell to inter
perse questions and explanations illustra
ive of the truth, and also to encourage the
lass to ask for information on any points
hichi may be mysterious to their young
ainds. He shoulid impress upon their
inds the truth of the immortality of the
ol and its priceless value; show how
hrough the fall of Adam, our federal head
na representative, all p~urity anid holiness
f character was lost; that the whole race
escending from] him has inherited a de
raved nature and are inclined only to the
mays of sin and evil, the natural heart being
tenmity with God. He should point out the
secessity for the new birth, or as it is termed
a the 1;ible regeneration. He will then
'oint them to Jesus Christ, the Saviour;
how what he has done for our redemption,
nd how deeply in earnest wve shoul be for
ur own and thc salvation of others, ex
laning clearly that there is no other wvay
inn through the blood and merits of Christ~
esus, who is our great substitute, sacrifice,
nid mediator, once an offering for sin, now
ighly ezalted, the great High Priest andl
vocaite for his peCople. Tell them that

imself a sacrilice for our sins, has pur
