The Integrity of this nation to-day,
as well as Its commercial prosperity, Is
due ulone to his gallantry and hla
courage. The United States Is redeem
ing her pledge well to those who fought
for her her life and her honor. No

Sometimes figures are more eloquent
than words. The new official census
of Great Britain shows that while
fifty years ago there were 8,105,124
i souls in Ireland, there are now only
4.700,101 souls a loss of about three
and a half millions of population in
that period, 450,000 of Whioh are cred'
ited to the decade just passed. And
the most striking feature of this state
of facts is that the north of the island
is a greater loser than other parts of
the island. In the last ten years the
number of abaudoned homesteads and
dwellings in all Ireland has increased
12 per cent. The Irish land bill, if
there be any virtue in it, passed none
too soon. It will take much good gov
eminent to replace In small part what
bad government has wantonly de
stroyed. The evil done can never be
fully atoned for.

THOUGHTS ON THIS AND THAT
HEMES TERSELY TABULATED.
Ihe Tattle of the Tattlers Timely
Taken and Told Typograplcally
In a Tastoful and Tempt
There is something choorful in tbo sight
that moots one's otes to-day. lie e and
thero ho meots a coup of school cb' dren,
weighted with books, ela.03 and olhor edu
catlonal perquVtes, bound to or from the
school house or tea book store, full of
oagor excitement and vo'y evidently re
joicing that the tcbool days havo again
begun. Tbey havo opjoyod tboir Jong
vacation and many of ibom woro loath to
see us lorm grow shorter and tbo limo of
work draw near. Ajd yet when the school
day actually conies and tbo school boll
rings tbey scamper off to their arithmetics
and spoiling with as much alacrity as if the
books were doHs or base ball bats. Thore
is on immeofo amojnt of enthusiasm ex
pressed on tho face3 and in thu speech of
our school children of all ages to-day
And for tho typical laggard, "creepin:

Would have to search long and fruitlessly.
Of oourso Shenandoah children do not
all lovo school. It is not tbo naluro of
every child no', porbapr, of many children
so to do. Tho eminent Edward Evorelt
Ilalo has said, in a recent magazine article,
that be always haled school and was en
couraged to bato it. And, strange as such
words sound f'om ouo of tbo deepest
students and most widoly read scholars of
tho ago, thoy probably pretty accurately
eipress tho sentiments of many of tbo
aplost pupils of our Ecbools. It was Dr.
Halo's hatred of school, ho tells us, that
mado him apply himself raoro diligently.
He knew his lessons must bo loarnoi, and
ho made baste to learn tbem, that tbo ab
horred task might bo as spoodily as possible
finished. Those of our pupils who lovo
school will learn readily enough. The
discipline that was applied in Dr. Ilalo's
caso mako ovon tboso who lean toward
truancy tho head boys of tho class.
The childron who hate school in tho ab
stract are the most ontbusiasllo pupils to
day. Ask tbo teachers if it is not so. Tho
boys who are tbo most unruly and tbe girls
who rofuso to study aro apparently tho most
oajer to begin tho school yjar. They do
notreaby lovo to study. Tbe flwttnn
minute reccs ot the now lorm will bo to
them one of the baopiest ton mlnulei ever
known. A ed yet tbe'r avtual dolight over
school's beginning far exceeds tbat of their
more demurely studious com-ades.
"Why cii't Ibis eager ODtbutlaira bo al
ways maintained 7 Why need it wear
away and tbo eoorot pleasu-o of t;i'dy 'or
tbo boys and c''ls in question w''M cever
openly admit it is a p'oature be tbe
perennial substitute for tbo g-inding
drudgery tbat seems su.-o to set in next
Perhaps our wleo toscbers may mako It
so. Perhaps tbey will see that a hov who
b ,Ua ma'.bematios can oot bo made to ado-o
tbem, and bo may novclbelfM be made
vory proficient in them. PerbapUbev wll
take tho cue Iron the ao'Jvity of'i;sor
that lazy boy to-day and endeavor to keep
him active all year. Perhaps they will,; -y
to improcs on their pupils tbat trite b'.'t
wholesome lesson that the more diligont'y
tbey work the briefer will bo the haled
labor. And thus, porhaps, even like Dr.
Halo, tbey will reach a period when da-
tested study will become unconsciously a
dolight. We will at lout hope so.
And let us hope that the relations of
parents and pupils will not be marred dur
log the ensuing term as thoy woro during
the last. Let parents act with forobearanco
and, should tbey feel called upon to In
quire in complaints mado to tbem by
children, let them do so with a spirit of
fairness and not pronounce guilty upon
anyone until a full Investigation is made.
With a spirit of harmony prevailing be'
tween parent and teacher the child can
gain much. But the Influence of home and
the school room must bo combin d before

The pastor having returned a few davB

and somehow we get thero. Honco paupers
