NOT WHEAT. BUT TARES. '
Since the days of the Messianc F
parable, there have been constant r
repetitions of the sowing of wheat, i,
but at harvest time, finding there- c
with many tares.
This is true not only in a literal,
but likewise in a figurative sense.
No age, condition, or circumstance
seems to be a security agairst the
appear.noe of these trouble some and i;
,beless weeds; and individuals,
churches, societies, communities,
States, republics, and kingdoms are t
all troubled and vexed by the ap
pearance of these pestiffYrous weeds,
which are found mixed and intermin
gled with the wheat, when the reap
ing is begun. Cool judgment and a
practical knowledge of the cereal e
need will enable the husbandman to '
detect and cast out many of the spu
rious ones, but t b.et, the harvest a
tide, figuratively or litterally, will re- t1
veal many tares which will impover- a
iah the crop, and make it full short u
of its owners expectations. 6
The sowing is ever undertaken o
with bonyant expectations, and the d
future, painted by the magical touch
of Imagination, seems brilliant and
enticing; but the reaping is too often ti
clouded by the somber coloring of i
Disappointment, all because Good p
Judgment's warnings were unheeded, n
and the harvester realized that he U
had sowed, not wheat, but tares.
The heart of every human being is o
a field which will yield a barvest of fI
good or evil, as the soil is cultivated a
properly and scientifically. That of
the child must bring forth his char- b
acter, and great care must be taken a
as to whether it be a crop of useful- h
ness or of detriment to society. t
Many a parent, in attempting to raise
therefrom an honest, sober, industri
oas and npright woman or man has,
by measures too harsh in the train- t
ing, dwarfed and warped the disRosi- ar
tion, aasing the child to grow up
dishonet and vicious instead, and so- d
ciety has reaped therefore not wheat,
The heart never becomes sterile,
but will always bring forth a harvest
of some kind, and many an oneo. after
its owner has reahed man's estate t
and brought forth many arops useful
to the busime world of human en
deavors, has by q werror of husbsd
men (the community in which he It
lives), in the mse of fertiliers too fa
strong, eassed to yield profitable re i
trns for their labor, and heoeefrth

sower what that harvest will be. If
the seed are not good, no matter how
careful the fertilizing, watering or
cultivating, the harvest will be poor,

Therefore let every man, whether
as individual or citizen, perform well

of Lincoln will be a short cne this

We do not kno , what farmers are go

cotton almost entirely.
Live Stock Journal: The nine

Enterprise: There is too much
sentiment about our people, for us to

We sacrifice too much for sentiment
sake, and because of name, position,
fataily and connections, we permit
wrongs, which are detrimental to
the town, and disturbing to its peace
and dignity, to go unpunished and
unrighted, because it would be a dis

Robeline Battle Flag: Cotton is
comiing into our city slowly. The
farners say there is about half a
crop made. The stalks- are large
enough to hold from a bale
to a bale and a quarter to the acre,
but the rains have ruined it, and
many stalks have not a single boll.
We bave seen cotton that did not
have as much as one third of tha fruit
the stalk would be able to bear.

Echo: In all directions is heard
