THE ELDER SISTER,
Thoro in no character in the homo
circle more useful and beautiful than
a devoted elder sister who stands side
by side with tho toiling mother, lightening
all her cares and burdens. How

Now she presides at tho table in her
mother's absence, always so neatly
attiredthat it ii with pride the father
introduces her to his qucpt as "our
oldest daughter." Now she takes a
little troop into the garden with her
and amuse them, so mother may not
be disturbed in her work or rest.
Now she helps the boyB with their
hard lessons or reads father's paper
alond to rest his tired eyes. If
mother can run away for a few days
recreation she leaves home without
any anxiety, for mary will guide her
house wiso'v and happily in her ab.

weariest hours. There are elder sis
ters whose presence is not such a
blessing in a home. Their own selfish
ends and aims are the main pursuits
in life, and anything that stands
in tho way of these is regarded with
great impatience. Suoh daughters
are comfort to a mother's heart.
Whioh kind of an elder sister are you

BIG BOCK IS SLAIN,
Honton, Ky., Di 1 I. I,a.t Sunday
morning Andrew Iturlhart,
who lives on lloute 1, near tho
Graves county liuo, discovered a fine
buck in the field of one of his neighbors,
He immediately procured his
gun and soon had the deer converted
into venison. Ho weighed 173
pounds, and had fine horns, which
Mr Buckh.trt prizes highly. This
is the first deer killed in this county
for many years, and it is a question
as to where he camo from.
Why art thou cast down, 0 moy soul I
Look up, Iricd bouI, look up,
Tin stnful to be said;
Thy father guards thco day by day,
Then cheer thy heart, bo glad.
He knows the trials of tho way,
He knowH whon oyes with tears
In darkest hours kneel down and pray
He longs to bring thee nearer Him,
His lovo is boundless, full and free,
It knows no change, it snows no
0, hear Him say, "Como unto Mo"
He is thy Helper, Guide and
Thy light and briof affliction here,
Kternal glory works for thee;
Run thou life's race, 'nor sigh, nor
For hcavon at last thy home shall
Look up, then, soul, look up,
And bo thou not oast down,
Trust thou in God and do His will;
"Let no man tako thy crown."
