MOONRISE ON MISSIONARY RIDGE.
A peaceful valley, stretching far below. .
Wherein the night veiled city seemed an under
constellations strange to practiced eye.
And milky way made by the pale, faint gleam.
Where wound he Tennessee's broad, silvery
Dreamlike and mystic in ita far off flow.
Along the eastward, loomed a dark, broad
Of hills, which seemed, like ominous clouds, to
Between the lower, and the upper sky;
Or Jagged reefs, midway two starlit seas.
Fanned by a soft, maomolia arAntaf hmu.
That made more perfect yet the southern night.
Beyond the hills urn-ose the rnddr ahlaM
Of the full moon, while from lta blood stained
I read the saat. In thi lf linrrin.
When theeampflres gleamed, where now the
Bent cheering rays into the deepening night.
And "Mission Ridge." lay one vast battlefield.

A teacher in a mission Sunday school
says that her boys, though their knowl
edge of the Bible is unhappily slight, ask
her questions which oblio-e her nnt nnlr tn

mandments there are, I am sure," said the
teacher the second Sunday, when six, seven

how many commandments there are for
you to keep, for there are as many com

quired one boy with a revival if interest.
"J ust as many, and no more," replied the
teacher with a srnile.
"I guess 111 brine aloni; Jim So per. lives
next door to me, next Sunday," said this
boy, at the end of the lesson, and he re
ceived a cordial reply to this remark.
The next Sunday he appeared accom

at his side during the lesson. When it
came his turn to auswer questions he said

There Are Fifty Varieties or Pecaua.
A few years hence one will not. loot in
the market merely for chestnuts or hick
ory nuts, but for certain choice kinds. Al
ready no less than fifty varieties of pecans
have been named. Of these last many
plantations are in bearing and hundreds
more have been set out in the gulf states.
Their stock has been obtained bv craft
from wild trees in Texas and Mississippi,
the fruit of which is paper shelled, so as to

18 Founds oi Blood
Is about the quantity nature allows to an
aqolt person. It is of tbe utmost im
portance that tbe blood should be kept as
pure as possible. By its remarkable
cures of scrofula, salt rheum, etc.. Hood's
Sarsaoarilla has proven its claim to be the
best blood purifier.
For a general family cathartic we con
fidently recommend Hood's Pills. They
should be in every home medicine chest.
