Winding up the Clock.
The weights of life are rimnuinlg down,
As through the world we go:
And, marklye, how the penduhui
Swings s ower to and fro.
Thie well-worn wheels uncertain turn,
The hands together knock,
And thus I moralize to-night,
While windling up the clock.
The days of youth and manhood see
Time's limning pencil trace
Life's years of joy, or weariness
Upon its fading face.
As erst these numerals were drawn,
That staire at me and mock,
Like spectres of the night whilst I
Am winding up the clock.
Oh. loving hearts! for [is to-day,
The works are wearing fast,
The hands and pendulum shall stop,
The weights shall fall at last.
Run down! to be wound up, where
No more ouir lives shall mock
With doubts like those that. in me rose,
While winding up the clock!
Why Some Teachers Fall.
They are lazy.
They neglect details.
They have no eye to order.
They are easily discouraged.
They hope to get along without
They fail to know w'at the
world is doing.
They do not find out what other
teachers are doing.
They do not try to improve.
They have too much outside
They talk politics too much.
They philosophize on everything
but their own business.
They tail to have new ideas.
They fail to use such as they
They are penny wise and pound
They have become dry, stale and
repulsive to theii children.
They think inferior work does
just, as well as good work.
They are not polite enough.
They think most things take too
They use poor judgenent.
They fail to practice what the
educational papers tell them.
T1hey rely on the little stock of
goods they begin with.
Th'1ey do not study the children.
Th~ey forget that the art of teach
ing is ana art that requires studly.
They can see the weak points in
their scholars but not in themselves.
They are stingy toward theirself.
Thiey read no educational papers
They know so much they will
learn no more.
Thley think they cannot learn
anything miore about their art.
They are always trying to gp in
to something else.
They do not determine to be the
best teachers in the plac -
They are rusty and without am
They began with a small stock
of ideas and have not increased it.
*They follow the same method
with each class.-Exchange.

AN AQUEOUS AFFRAY.----rhe mo
notony ot proceedings in the court
of Common Pleas was relieved yes
(erday by an incident somewhat
out of the ordinary course of judi
cial proceedings. Col. W. H. Per
ry was arguing a case for the
plaintiff when the defendent, Wm.
M. Lenderman, interrupted him
with the loudly uttered allegation,
'that is false,' referring to a state
ment made by Col. Perry. Col.
Perry promptly picked up the near
est thing in reach, which happened
to be glass of water, and threw the
water into Mr. Lenderinan's face.
Thue latter rose and the two faced
each other until Judge Fraser's
voice recalled Col. Perry to the
recollection of his surroundings
which he had forgotten in the irri
tation of the moment. He subse
quently apologized to the court and
the process of justice resumed their
smooth operation.-Daily News,
-Predictions of the result of the
presidential election are all foolish
ness. One man knows exactiv as
much about i* as another. The
chairman of the committees of the
respective parties ought to be the
best informed men in the country,
and they will give any enquiring
person precise13 opposite opinions.
Nobody can tell what will occur
between now and election day.
Thousands of complications which
cannot be foreseen may occur any
day and reverse all the previously
existing conditions. No man living
can give an intelligent explanation
of why he believes in the success
of either part y to-day, arnd there is
less chance predictions for Novem
ber being anything but guessing.
Let us cease to discuss politics
in Greenville, and direct our entire
attention to the Piedmont Fair and
the extension of the Greenville &
Laurens railroad. We can tell
something about them and piredict
the returns from them with coir
parative accuracy. -- Daily News.
