can show tiiat the total number of
divorce cases in the U. S. for any
given year since 1870 exceeds the
figure for nil the rest of the world.
And that the percentage of divorces
to marriages more than doubled
since 1870 and more than trebled
sinee 1890. This is not a very
good incentive for the unmarried
young men to become benedicts.
But it may serve as a solution to
the statements which are so often
.given them "you don't know what
you are missing."
The elimination of the negro by
the ''Lily White" Republicans in
Alabama is simply another indi
cation of the fact that the negro
will soon have to look to a politioal
party other than the Republican
party. Since it is pretty evident
that the Republican leaders have
no more use for him than any
other party, other than to secure
)his vote and his aid during the
campaign. The negro must cease,
to be a political slave. If he votes
the Republican ticket he should do
so because he believes iu Repub
lican principles and not because
Abraham Lincoln was a Repub
lican nor bocause the Republican
party fought to free his aneostors.

The Two School Boys.
I saw one morn throng' rain and
Two boys trudge on together
With slate and book to school they
All through the stormy weather.
The selfsame coat enwrapped them
Perhaps they had no other
Hut who is there who would not
A warm coat with his brother?
Two hnppy-hcarted lads were they;
Content with homely faring.
Right merrily they trotted on
For wind nor weather caring.
It took me back to other days,
When thou and I together
Knfoided both in one warm shawl,
Were wont to brave the weather.
Still stray my thoughts to those old
Under the like conditions,
When full of zeal, we traveled on
Then when the sweet, wild fruits we
Or long tree branch for swinging;
As pleased were we as if we'd found
The sourco of Nile upsprlnging.
Our golden days were they, and still
A halo fair and golden
Is thrown around our later years,
Wo, in its light enfolden.
Still muse upon those olden days,
Aud ever in our dreaming,
Those dear old days those dear old
Are still with us in seeming.

gall stones. I had read so much
about the relief Ripans Tabules
gave other people, I thought I
would get some. I have used eight

had a spell since.
