This maxim ;s at true as it is old, but
the tnie4at of honesty is, as a general
thing lost sight of in these degenerate
times. The man who is unfortunate,
w hether from sickness Df" otherwise,
ad fails to meet his obligations al

Tn prosperity, is branded by his fellows
of no account and by a majority as!di
honest' This judgment is pronounced
upon man' without reflection. Per
haps, if the accused .man's, surround
ings and 'sore trials in battling with
poverty were fully known, he would be
found to possess an honesty of purpose
and life that he -has no-abilility to
show to the world.- - Failing to pay and
dishonesty are very different terms.
Tlife man who is above' want, who occu
pies a" position in society on account of
his wealth who can meet every obliga
tion as it comes up, is lauded to the
sines as the honest man, who pays the
last cent, and is incapable of doing a
little thing. Let the positions of these
characters, be changed, note the result,
and the true test comes. Many pet-'
sons, having the ability paj to the ut
most farthing, (which all rich or poor
ought to do, if they can,) who if placed
in the shoes of' the unfortntfate would
do-as. be-vdoes, and often-times far
worsei v.Many men, possessing all the
elements of the true gentleman, are
forced, at times, from their, surround
ings, to do what the more fortunate
class would call a little thing.VWe are
creatures of eircunistances, all of us
lacking in the great essential CHARI
TY. There would be .but little bicker
ing and fault-finding, less back-biting
and denunciation, if we fairly under
stood one another. Let all strive to be
more charitable in their feeling to

be happier and the world move on bet

T)r. L. B. Chilton, resident physi
cian of Woodlawn, Tenn., paid us a
visit and a subscription one day this
week. This reminds us of a statement
made to us not long since, that out of
a number of deaths around Woodlawn,
for the last two years, only one was
under the age of 70. Where they have
such a physician as Dr Chilton,- to
die, they have to wear out, -as he is al
most certain to cure his patients if
they have vitality enough left to work
on. He recently sold his celebrated
saddle horse, Gray Bob, for $ 225, to a
gentleman in Stewart county. I This
amount will enable him to buy two
common horses to carry him through
his large aud increasing practice.

when trying to sell the horse. Mr.
