Bill Nye says taut tbe newspaper puff
is something that makes men feel bad
if they don't get it. Tbe groundwork of
a newspaper puff consists of a good moral
character and a good bank cccount.
Writing newspaper puffs is like mixing
sherry cobblers and mint juleps all
through the summer months for custo
mers and quenching your own thirst with
rainwater. Sometimes a man is looking
for a puff and don't get it; then he stys
the publication is going down bill, and
that it is in the bands of a monopoly, a&d
he would stop subscribing if be did net
have to pay his bill first. Writing a news
paper puff is like taking the photograph of
a homely baby. If the photograph doesn't
represent the child with wings, and hilos,
and harps, and things it shows that tie
artist dues not understand his business.
S it is With tbe newspaper puff if the
puffee doesn't s d out like the bold and
fearless exponent of truth and morali-y
it shows that the puffer doesn't under
stand htiman nature. Ilia more fun to
see a man read a puff of himself than it is
to see a fat man slip up on an orange
peel. The narrow minded man reads it
over seven or e;ght ti sep, and then goes
around to tbe different places in town
where tLe paper is taken, and steals what
cop es he can. The kind-hearted family
man goes home and reads it to
his wife, and then pays up hi
bill on the paper. Tbe successful busi
ness man, who advertises and makes
money, starts immediately to find the
newspaper man and SDtaft a word cf
grateful acknowltdgement and encour
agement. Then tw men start out of tbe
sanctum and walk thoughtfully down tbe
street together, and the successful busi
ness man takes sugar in his, and they
both eat a clove or two; and life i
sweeter and peace settles down like a
turtle dove in their hearts, and after a
while lamp posts get more plentiful, and
everybody seems to be more or less in
toxicated; but the hearts of tbese two
men are filled with nameless joy, because
they knew where to stop and not make

E. II. Kempti r, of Dutch Bottoms, a

ardent republican, talked 10 the people of
this vicinity last Saturday nigtit in the

and intelligent manner. A large crowd
was out to hear him.
At the M. W. A. meeting last Satur

interest taken in tbese meetings by most
of the members and it is a shame to at out
of a camp of 41 members it is so difficult
a matter to get a quorum ou'
to these meetings. There were only
eight present last Saturday, and these
self same members who are conspicuous
by their absence will be the first persons
to complain of the manegement of the
affihs of tbe camp.

Catarrh Can't be Cared
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrb is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall'a Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly On tbe blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two iogredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

In outward circumstance and condition
the iives of the philosophers have varied as
widely as those of any other class of men.
While Aristotle gathered riches through
the patronage of kings, Comte constructed
the "Positive Philosophy" on an income
that once, indeed, in a phenomenal tide of
good fortune, amounted to 400 a year, but
which usually was less than 200, and
often less than 100. While Descartes, 1
fore entering npon that eight years' soli
tary study of himself, which was the last
stage in the evolution of his philosophic
system, had the means and inclination to
wander the better part of nine years up
and down Europe studying other men,
Kant in all his lonn life never got out.M.Ie
tbe boundaries of east Prussia, or as much
as a hundred miles awaj from the town of
But, however different, in opportunities
and rewards, the lives of the philosopher
are at one in the love of truth for its ow n
sake, and In n readiness to spare no labor,
and none of the ordinary forms of worldly
success to find it. Such examples of self
denial and of long, secluded diligence a
some of the philosophers furnish, are
scarcely to be matched elsewhere. !-crib-ner's.

The Rev. Russell II. Conwell, of the Hap
tist Temple, is the young man's friend arid
exerts himself to turn iiside every vomit;
man whom he beholds "treading the prim
rose path to the everlasting bontire." I-ist
week, in his pen-grinni inns, his: eyes feii
upon one nmlmi; his Imly admonition to
save him from coins down to iiotri.mlr.-s
perdition. So. approaching him, Dr. Con
well plarr-d one hand impressively iijkhi
his shoulder and exclaimed:
"Young man. Satan hath hold of thee!"
What t be riTect. of this startling declara
tion upon the young man was cannot in
described; but certain it is that when Dr.
Conwell, totally unconscious of the hu
mor of the occasion, reported to his con
gregation how he took hold of the young
man and addressed him a very perceptible
titter surprised the pastor. By this time he
is probably laughing, too, at, the droll at
titude in which he made himself pose.
