LIFE'S ILLS AND THEIR EEMEDY.
Eisay read by Hiss Jennie E. .Tohn-iton, rturtn;

"For erei evil under the srn.
There's a remedy or there U none.
If there is one, try and find It,
If there lsn',t never mind it."
The world is full of evil, we often say,
and we are only too ready to find cause for
complaint against it
We talk much of the ills of life and are
troubled by the thought of evils that may
never occur. We are too apt to look on
the dark side, forgetting that it is the best
under all evil circumstances, not to give up,
but to cheerfully accept the tact, that
things cannot always be according to our
liking, and to make the best of it. Those
persons who go out into the
world merely for enjoyment, soon
exhaust the cup of pleasure, and
and lind nothing at the bottom but fie bit
ter dregs of discontent; while on the other
hand, they who go out in the hope of alle
viating some of tiie ills of life, by mixing

ing plan wntcaing resulw, ifenve hap
piness from following out their own designs
which they have formed for the good of
If we have tasks to perform, nad carnot
at all times complete them in a way we
would like, we should start out again with
out being discouraged by a failure, and the
next attempt try and remedy the fault we
lave committed in the first. We should take
up our tasks with pleasure, aud not with
dislike, since cheerfulness aud happiness
alone can make us loved and respected and
make others wish to seek our society. We
can generally find a remedy for the evils
which beset us, if we cheerfully and cour
ageously try to do so. Those persons who
are always moping and fretting, are always
in trouble, not because of any real evils
but on account of those they fear may
"Dehind cvety dark cloud there is a silver
lining," and though dark clouds will gather
up before us, we can nnd ought to look be
yond them, remembering that they may
noon puss nwny. A great many persons
curry their life as ou author carries a book
which he is writing, they never loose sight
of their burden; they arc aware that
they gain nothing by carrying it but
they cairy it nevertheless.
Not content with doiug their duty, and
trying their best while actively engaged,
they take home with them a long face and
breathe sighs in the saddest tusliion nnd
really unfit themselves for the exercise of
Wit!) persons of tin's character it makes
little difference whether they are prosperous
or not, If times are good and they havo no
fault to find with matters as they exist they
become troubled about bad times that may
possibly be just ahead. They aro absorbed
in their troubled thoughts, taking no inter
est in any tiling around them; having no
sympathy for others, and making no effort
to relieve themselves of their burden.
We believe it is in the power of all to lay
aside the greater part of their cares and
anxieties. Any ono who dwells continually
on the dark side of life, and is troubled
and gloomy concerning the future, becomes
weak and timid, and those who insist upon
keeping their bunions on their own shoul
ders practically deny the existence of a Bo
ing superior to themselves and who cares
for thorn. Surely it Is necessary for every
one in faring the evils of life, to bo "String
and of good courage." , A "discouraged

care, thinking sometimes that the evil to
far exceeds the good that It ia useless to
seek for remedies, but such is the reasoning
of cowards. . The true spirit with which to
meet the cares and burdens of Mfe isex-
pressed by the poet where he sayi: ". , .'

Some one has said:
"Evils ia the journey of lifo are like the

through our regular houra of bodily and
mental labor and feel tho better rather
than the worse for it, but to core for that,
which our care cn not touch, is the burden
that breaks the back of the world.
And yet, after all has been said about
our power to conquer evil by bravely fight
ing it, it does remain true that there are
some difficulties which cannot be overcome
some burdens which can neither bo
borne easily nor lain down, some trials
which we can only endure.
In such cases, a cheertul patience )9 our
only strength. If there is no remedy,

We should never cultivate despondency,
nor spend time in uselessly regretting the
past. We should "never reflect on a past
action that, was done with a good motive
and Jhc best of judgment at the time."
And now we have tried to bring beforo
you the the three classes of evils to which
the world is most subject.
Those which only need a strong arm and
a vigorous will for their conquest, those
which can only be endured, and those
which are purely imaginary. Our motto
holds good for all of them. But tho last,
which is by far the greatest part of our
troubles, let us especially beware, and not
go through the world, dragging after us im
maghi'ry evils and wearying ourselves to
THE LONG BOW.
The wet weather has prevented the "Cen
tal Archeiy Club" from coming out to
practice, so we can give no report of
-- . 4..X.J
will ndulgo in a few words of advice, or
ins.. ucdon, as to the selection of the most
important implement to the archer, tho
Bow, nnd perhaps tell them how not to
break it, what woods make the best, how
the best are made, who makes them, &c,
as we have learned by rending up on tho
best authorities we havo on Archers and
Tho "Horsman" Bows are, without doubt
the best that can be obtained. Mr. Hors
man guarantees every Bow he sends out, to
have been subjected to two severe tests. As
soon as tho Bow is made and before the
horn tips are put on, or the bow is polished,
it i'3 placed in a machine and bent in such a
way that if there is any weak spot, the bow
is sure to break. Again after tho Bow is
finished it is tested with an arrow before
being sent out. His wood is brought m
cargoes direct from Cuba and no pains t
expensa is spared to secure the best mate
rial. The wood is selected for the various
grades of Bows. Tho higher the price of
the Bow the clearer the wood; the cheaper
the Bow the poorer tho wood.
Tlio high priced Bows are made of two
pices of wood glued together, aud rauge
"1 pilce tiom $7 to $18.00. The best for
club use and hard vtsago is Hickory ami
Lance, or Beet'wood and Lance. The high
est priced are made of Snakewood and
Spanish Yew. Lemon wood Hows, mado
to weight range in prico from 4U5 to 3.00
each jexlia quality Lsncewnod 3.fl0 to 4.30
Mich; lino quality Lancewood 1.00 to
$1.2 nach; flood Lancowwood 73 cents t
$2.25 each, nnd Lancewood Bows, tho
best at the prico of -any manufactured in
this count ry or England of tho same grade,
15 cents to $1.50. These Bows havo been
thoroughly tested ond buyers have a range
in prico from 15 cents to $18.00.
Tho best Bows aro sometimes broken by
cureless usage, usually by beuding tho
.ongway or snapping the string without
on in row. A uow snouiu never oe oeni ex
cept with the fiat side out.
Archer experts havo prouounced the
Horsmnn bow of tho same grade and same
wood, better than tho best English Bows
of tlui same material.
We think that dealers in archery goods
wou.d find it to tlieir advantage to nanaio
those manufactured by E. I. Horsman,
