'The above is the very appropriate
title'rff a new book which has appear
ed among us. The author, Dr. J. II.
ivellogg, stands high in Ins profession,
I'ling prominently connected with the
yellow fever commission in 1878. The
book is written in beautiful, chaste lan
guage, and ui.iversally recognized
truths, on a very delicate subject, nre
stated in clear, tere terms, that are
easily understood by the uneducated,
and appreciated by the learned. So
much poisonous literature has been
given to the public on the subjects that
nre contained iu this volume that an
antidote is demanded by all really good
and scientific people. This, no doubt,
accounts for its unprecedented popu
larity among the higher classes. We
can do no belter than to cite a very
few testimonials that have been sent to
the publishers after an examination of
the work. Dr. D. C. Kelly says : "I
do not hesitate to commend it heartily
to parents or teachers." A. J. liaird,
D. D., of Nashville,- says: "I have
examined 'Plain Facts' very carefully.
It is a remarkable book. The author,
from a natural and scientific standpoint,
treats many delicate and important
. subjects i;i Mich a plain, yet chaste and
masterly style, that the prudeut, wheth
er young or old, may foresee the evil
and hide himself. He boldly, yet
kindly, lifts the veil and lets in a flood
of light upon the multitudes, which
has hitherto been enjoyed chiefly by
the medical men. He exposes unmis
tnkablv the lion id maelstrom into
which the innocent aud ignorant' may
unwarily drift and perish, and blazes
out cleurlv the only roval highway to
continuous purity, health and happi
ness. At best, life's pathway is beset
with dangers, and the strongest and
wisest may stumble aud fall while
walking in darkness. All parents who
will carefully study this volume, and
faithfully observe and early teach its
contents to their sons and daughters,
will be remembered gratefully wheu
bud and blossom have ripened into use
ful and glorious fruit. I am glad that
bo high an authority as Dr. Kcllogj
has producrd it, and hope its christian
publishers may be able to place it be
side every hearthstone. "I heartily

THE OUTLOOK FOR 1881.
Everywhere in the South the busi
ness outlook is cheering, aud the step
of progress is quickened.
The late National defeat has hnd the
effect to make the South look to her
self for future greatness, which is the
true source after all. Permanent
greatness rests upon luherent merit.
The South possesses all the elements of
greatness, and only needs additional
development to outstrip the world in
prosperity. Let our people then go to
work to make their, own fortunes. We
must make more at home for exporta
tion, aud consume less of Importations
from abroad. Political economy teaches
that no people can become wealthy so
long as they discriminate for one class
Farmers, tiaders, mechanics and
manufacturers, town people and coun
try people must all labor together for
the common good of all. It is the
part of littlemindcduess as well as con
sumate folly for any one class of these
persons to try to rise by pulling down
another. It is the part of wisdom and
magnanimity for all to pull together
and go up together.
Forty-Second (Soncral Assembly.
The Forty Second General Assembly
of Tenn., convened last Monday, in
the State Capitol and after consider-
able political trickery effected the fol
. II. B. Ramsey, Republican, with
Greenback proclivities, was elected
Speaker of tha House by the vote of
Jas. Warren, Grecubacker, who named
and elected the Speaker, thus beating
the Republican nominee, Mr. R. R.
Butler, and Mr, Manson the Democrat.
The Senate, Thursday, elected Geo. II.
Morgan, of Jackson county, Democrat,
as speaker on the !3rd ballot.
Mr. I'lcKenng, Kepublican, was
elected Principal Clerk of the House,
Mr. Mathes, Republican, Assist. Clerk,
and Mrs. Grizzard engrossing clerk.
The week has been spent in partisan
balloting and political engineering
with but little hopes of anything else
for for weeks to come.

Wc have schools in abundance for

the reasons of things to miuds already

does not fall, but forms on plants, he
needs also to be taught how and why
it forms. Let us have schools of phi
