The finest and purest
ever in Columbia
JOHN J. INQALLS.
By J. W. Mooter.
Observing recently that the mon
ument to this famous man is about
completed, I fell in the following
reflective mood. Such men are
known by their work rather than
by any memento contributed by the
public. Especially is this the case
when the character of the work is
unique as was that of Ingalls. He
was a philosopher and a poet. He
always bad his senses about him
and knew how to nse them with in
gennity and effect. He seemed
always to be in pursuit of some
thing and in that pursuit was re
lentless. He thrashed folly with
a Heavy nana ana always naa a
Mjeeu eye for tne ludiorOU8. The
essays and addresses published
since death bear witness to this
ne was a sworn foe to ignorance
' --C5 J
It is also to be noted ihat he was
"made desperate by too quick a
sense of constant iufelicity." His
personality being a quintessence of
sense he was quick at a quarrel yet
kind as a little child. His fever
ish life refused rest. He busied
himself in improving his destiny
by the correction of errors and the
implanting of new ideas. Being a
politician his course was bitterly
heart he was a literary recluse and
ier8 ne wouia nave risen even
higher in the world's estimation
than he did. All in all his was
a great career. He looked and
talked and acted like a King. He
has inscribed his name high up on
the wall of fame and needs no
other remembrance than to be en
shrined in the hearts of his ad
BE CHEERFUL IP YOU CAN.
From the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle.
Give the friend you meet a smile
and a cheery word as you pass
along. Unless your troubles are
nrgent and you are looking to him
for aid do not volunteer a recital of
vour worries. He has troubles of
bis own. Talk on pleasant things
Have confidence in the present and
faith in the future. Nobody cares
to hear your misgivings or your
predictions of worse things that
are to come.

Prof. O. M. Shackleford, who it
a teacher in Lincoln institute, is a
Missouri boy who has reached the
position he now holds by constant
self-application and perseverance.
He entered Lincoln Institute several
years ago and remained until he
had completed the college course
and at once entered upon the duties
of a teacher. He was first principal
of the school at Centaur, Mo.,
afterwards at Versailles. In 1000
he was elected principal of the
Howard school at Warrensburg
and was re-elected two successive
years, resigning in June last, when
he was tendered a position at Lin
coln Institute. Prof. Shackleford
possesses quite a talent for writing
verse and has contributed to the
columns of many magazines and
newspapers. He was paid the
high compliment last June of being
elected President of the Lincoln
Institute Alumni Association.
