LIFE'S ILLS AND THEIR REMEDY.
E.ssyreadby Miss Jennie E. Joho.ton, during
the Graduating Eserclses of the Cairo High School,
Friday tvenluc. June l:)th, 1879.1
"For eveiy evil under the sru,
There's a remedy or there U none.
If there Is one, ttr and find It,
If there Isn'.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 Iwttoin 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
JMUjurc uith toil a0,l industry; liv form
ing plans watching resulw, iferive hap
piness from following out their own designs
which they have formed for the good of
If we have tasks to perform, ami cannot
at all times complete them iu 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
have committed in the first. We should take
up our tasks with pleasure, and not with
dislike, since cheerfulness and happiness
alone can make us loved and respected and
make others wish to seek our society. We
can generally find a remedy fur 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
"ttohind cveiy dark cloud there is a silver
lining," and though dark clouds will gather
up before us, we can oml ought to look be
yond them, remembering that they may
soon pass away. A great many persons
carry their life as ou author curries a book
which he is writing, they never loone siyht
of their burden; they are 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 fuce and
breathe, sighs in the saddest tusliion und
really unlit themselves for the exercise of
With persons of this character it makes
little difference whether they are prosperous
or not, if times sire good and they have no
fault to find with matters as they exist they
become troubled about bad times that may
possibly be just ahead. They are absorbed
in their troubled thoughts, taking no iutcr
est in anything 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 tho 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 burttens on their own shoul
ders practically deny tho existence of a Be
ing superior to themselves and who cares
for them. Surely it Is necessary for every
one in faring the evils of life, to Ik) "String
and of good courage." , A "discouragod
man is always a weak man." We aro In
the habit of talking of tho world as full of

care, thinking somctimea that the eyil tw
far exceeds tho good that it is useless to
seek for remedies, but such is the reasoning
of cowards. . The true spirit with which to
meet the cares and burdens of Ufe is ex-'
pressed by tho poet where he says: .''.''
'The hill thonsh b'Gh I caret to ascend
The difflcnlty will not mo offead.
For I m rcelve the way of Ufo l!e here,
Come, pluck upbe;irl,let'u neither fi'nt cor fear.
Cuter taougu difficult the risat way to go, . '
Than the wrong thon;;h,ea8 where the end Is woe.
Some one has said:
"Evils in the journey of life are like the
hills which alarm travelers upon their road,
they both appear great at a distance, but
when wo approach them we rind them far
Icfs insurmountable than wc had con
ceived." CheeifuIhcFS is an excellent wearing
quality; it Las been called the '"Bright
weuther of the heait." The world i3 in
need of more sunshine in its disposition
Too maDy persons are anxious about
that which anxiety con not mend, aro
troubled about that which they
can neither cause nor prevent. W'ectmpo
through our regular hours of bodily and
mental labor and feel tho better rather
than the worse for it, but to core for that.
which our care cm 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 right
ing it, it does remain true that there are
some difficulties which cannot be overcome
some burdens which can neither be
borne easily nor lain down, some trials
which wc can only endure.
In such cases, a cheertul patience is our
only strength. If there is no remedy,
"never mind it, but wait patiently with all '
your strength'' till God sends relief.
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 Jhe 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 sulyect.
Those which only need a strong arm and
a vigorous will for their conquest, those
which can only bo endured, itnd those
which are purely imaginary. Our motto
holds good for all of them. But the 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
maght'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
-... . - .. . i ... j
will indulge ;n a few words of advice, or
in.Si.uciiou, as to the selection of the most
important implement to the archer, tho
Bow, ami perhaps tell them how not to
break it, what woods make the best, how
the best are made, who makes them, &c,
as wc have learned by reading upon tho
best authorities wc have 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 ns tho Bow is mado and before the
horn tips are put on, or the bow is polished,
it h 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 beforo
being sent out. Ills wood is brought in
cargoes direct from Cuba and no pains t
expeuso is spared to secure the best mate
rial. Tho wood is selected for tho various
grados of Bows. Tho higher the price of
the Bow the clearer tho wood; the cheaper
the Bow the poorer tho wood.
Tao high priced Bows ore made of two
picMesof wood glued together, and range
'i pticet.om $7 to f 18.00. The best for
club use and hard usngo is Hickory ami
Lance, or Beefwood and Lance. The high
est priced are made of Snakewood and
Spanish Yew. Lemon wood Bows, ntsdo
to weight range in price from $1:13 to $3.00
each :e.lra quality Lsneewood f'J.flO to $4.S0
each; fine quality Lance wood $1.00 to
$3.2 naeli ; good Lnncuwwood 73 cents tt
$2.25 each, und Liutmvood Bows, tho
best at tho prico of.nny manufactured In
this country or England of tho sumo grade,
15 cents to $1.50. These Hows htivo been
thoroughly tested and buyers have a range
iu price from 15 cents to $18.00.
Tho best Bows aro sometimes broken by
careless usage, usually by bending tho
m. wig way or snapping tho string without
tin m row. A Bow should never bo bent ex
cept with tho fiat side out.
Archer experts havu pronounced the
Ilorsmnn bow of tho Biimo grade and same
wood, belter thau tho best English Bows
of the same material.
We think that dealers In archery goods
would llnd It to their advantago to handle
thosu manufactured by E. I. Horsman,
