had 'worked from early spring-time,
earhy and late and hard, and he was
counting his assets and figuring out

two acres to uuy nis two Doys new

this to fit them out with new suits.
To buy his wife a protected dress
took one hundred bushels more,
while five acres went in a solid lump
for the carpets ou the floor. His
tax and his grocery bill absorbed
his crop of oats, while the interest
on his farm mortgage took all his

What Makes a Man?
AVe as a nation believe in schools
and educatioiL The vast majority
of the children of the nation are in
reach of some sort of schools pre
senting greater or less advantages,
and the white population of the
United States are perhaps equal in
point of intellect to any other peo
ple on earth. There are many good'
teachers in our schools, but there are
teachers and teachers, and it may
well be doubted that the schooling
that the mass of the children in tho
United States get is calculated to
bring out their powers in the great
est degree and for the best purpose.
There is too much disposition to
lose m:ht of tho individual and
mergo it into the class. There is
nothing that so developes tho mind
and character of the child as for
the teacher to be able to, in a meas-
ure, throw away tne restraints ot
formality and dive into the soul of
the chihl and bring out and develop
its moral as well as its intellectual
dualities. It is not merely know
ing how to read, write?, and spell
it is the character and tone that is
given the faculties. The child that
would succeed must learn self-reliance,
boldness, independence, and
individuality. One of the greatest
secrets of success is self-denial. In
other worths, pleasure must not be a
Origin of "Calico."
St. Lmiix Ololic-Di'liint'ral.
The word "calico" has a queer
origin. Many centurieo ago the
first monarch of the province of
Malabar gave to one of his chiefs,
as a reward for distinguished ser
vices, his sword and all the land
within the limit of which a cock
crowing at a certain temple coull
be heard Prom this circumstance
the little town which grew up in the
center of this territory was called
Calicoda, or tl ie c ck crowing. A f
terwards it was called Calicut, nnil(
from this place the first cotton goods'
were imported' into England, bear
ing the name of "calico." .

The Census Enumerators.
Every enumerator appointed to
make the census is required to take
an oath that he will perform his du
ties faithfully. They take this oath
in light of the fact that if they vio
late it in any Particular they are
liable to a fine ,.f $3,000 and three

Professor Ely, of John Hopkins
University estimates .that poor
roads cost the farmer, on an aver
age of 15 per horse, and Professor
Jenks, of Knox College, Illinois,
argues that with good permanent
roads freight could be hauled 10
miles on wagons cheaper than it
could be taken 1 mile on a dirt
road to a railroad station, unloaded,
put on the cars, and carried to its
destination. Of the social influ
ences of good roads, lie says that "a
large part of the mental inspiration
of a farmer depends on their abili
ty to attend church, lectures, con
certs, and social gatherings at a
distance ; and really good roads, by
enabling them to go as much more
easily, would likely raise the whole
intellectual tone of the farming
community, besides keeping in the

In climbing a ladder we can. as
cend one step only by letting go
another; so all through life we? can
not take one upward step except by
letting tr,o the one, we now stand
upon. The child must loose his in
fantile grace, his winning ways, and
something of his innocence, to be- '
come the sturdy, active, inquiring
youth ; and the youth in his turn
must loose much of his bounding
gayety and eager enthusiasm to gain
the stability, breadth of view, and
power of mature and intelligent
manhood. So each specii s of hap
piness is gained by resigning some
preceding one. The sensualist must
give up the pleasure of vice ere he
can know the delights of a happy
home ; the miser must resign the joy
of counting his hoard before he can
experience the happiness of a gen
erous affection. The scholar gives
up ease for knowledge; the philan
thropist loses many personal ad- -
vantages to find a higher happiness-.
