apprehensions unless the true charac

In this business of lmrnin-r charcoal
the capitalist has not entered. There
are no trusts or corporations. The
work is conducted chiefly by indi
viduals, many of them poor. The
woods a iv free, and with an ax and a
box of matches any one can start a
charcoal camp in the South. Most
of them can jret their livinjr in huntinr
and fishinjr, and the actual cost of
board is reduced to the luxuries of a
piiie. tobacco, whisky and a suit of
old clothes occasionally. Kvery week
or two a traveling Methodist preacher
appears in the woods, and conducts
serviiv in the camp. This is a day
when all of the members of the canm
wash and spruce up as much as pos
sible, for they welcome all stranjrers,
and rive a hearty welcome t the
minister. It is doubtful if the preach
er :iceives more attention in any part
cf his long route. S transfers visiting
the woods aiv. always invited to the
rude feasts of the charcoal burners,
and despite their black-looking faces,
they have white hearts and aceonio
datinir ways. They visit the town or
city only when the stock of tobacco
and whisky is exhausted, or when
they drive to the railroad station to
dispose of their finished product.
The Contract Awarded.
The Board of Education of this city

non Bros, being the lowest the con

of seventeen hundred and forty-five
dollars. The work is to be completed

Hard Times lor Farmers.
May delivery corn has lieen sold in
St. Louis at 27; cents, making the
price on the farm I to - cents. Ue
cently there was a sale of corn at
Lakeville, in Stoddard county, on
the railroad at ten cents and contracts,
we are informed, can be made theiv at
12 cents. Farmers have plenty of
corn and unfortunately little stock to
eat it. People who have been shout
ing 'ood times'' should dry up.
There can be no good times with ten
cent corn and we might as well face
the music truthfully for we have got
to face it anyhow.

nest that an invention of the same

has plagiarized this idea, but has
also, it must lie confessed, improved

with this inscription: "Put a penny in

from the Pope in the Pope's own voice,

might be made very successful for

n Old Lawyer's Will.
The will of Nathan A. Chedsey. of
New York, contained some peculiar
' provisions. Mr. Chedsey was a
j lawyer of the old school. For twenty
I years he had an ottire on the top
floor of a dingy building in City Hall
'"' i place. The furniture was old-fashion-
led and everything was as plain as
could lie. His shingle was a small
one and it lcame so discolored by
dirt as to lx almost indistinguishable.
Hut tin old lawyer did a good busi
ness and saved his money, leaving, it
is estimated, about 1!0.XWI. The will
was drawn with the greatest rare, and
if its broken by relatives it prohahly
wil! not Ik his fault. One of its pe
culiar provisions is that $."O0 is to go
a church in a little town in Con
necticut of which his mother was a
j .,.,.. A portion of the income is
j t(( )(, )1(.voto(1 tl, thl. s:l)al.v or the min.
j istrr. and. if that minister is as poor
! as a good share of the country clergy
(are. it will U a godsend to him.
J Another provision is that to his
managing clerk he gives S.MHt for the
! education of the man s son. and lie
adds that it is iiis wis'n that the boy
may l; educated without refeivnce to
sectarian prejudiivs. It is supposed
that this means that he prefers that
he In- sent to the public schools, as
Mr. Chedsey was much attached to
the public system. To the clerk him
self. Mr. O'Brien, he holds out the
promise of wealth and a good business.
j The clerk is to manage the law practice
j for live years, and if at the end of
that time the executors think he has
! done the work honestly and properly,
i the business is to liecome his absolute-
ly. Memliers of the family are re-
memliereil by moderate sums. It is
doubtful if a man ever disposed of his
money in a way better designed to
make it useful and productive. Buf
