General News Notes About
People and Thigs.
Writing without a subject is
like a preacher trying to preach
without a text, it is hard work and
then nothing saidf at last. How
ever, we have a kind of ?hanker
ing'' for nlewspaper work and we
caiJ't help "skiening our ignor
11110' every now and then.
Speakig of ignorauce brings
to our mind something of great
imporitarnco. How many parente
are d war fing the usef uluess of theit
children by neglecting to educato
themn' and by so doing aro causing
the jails to ho filled with c.iimi
nals and hell with sinners? Pa
rents, do you know or do you care
anything about the responsibility
that rests upon you in regard as
to how you raise your children?
We are taught that the parents'
conduct will put the children's
teeth on edge, and that anything
of a disreputable nature will visit
to the fourth and fifth generation.
Then how important it is for pa
rents to be very discreet as-to how
and in what manner they raise
their children. At that great day
there will be many a poor soul
tha-t will have to go down to a
devil's hell, and the parents to a
certain extent will be accountable
for it. We will admit that there
are a few exceptious to this. We
have known of a few cases of bad
boys and men, too, where they had
been 'pretty well educated and
raised up by religious parente, but
in most cases it is just the revorre.
Every child born of a sound
- cognition has been given a talent,
and except that child is given an
opportunity to develop that talent,
how is it ever to make anything?
Remember the man that was
afraid and went and hid his talent;
what-did the Lord say to him?
The President of the United
States was once without an educa
rtLion, but the Lord had given him
a talent. Now if that talent had
never been cultivated, had he nev
er been edlucated, he wvould no
doubt have been working today
for ten dollars a month, whereas
he is getting something over four
thousand dollars a month. What
Caused it? IEdecation.
If children are not educated
howv are they to read and keep
posted, to know when they are vio
lating the laws of the land? How
many promulgators of the Gospel
are abroad inithe land? If we are
not so wve Oi n 'read for ourselves
how are we to know when the
truth is preached to us? Well
then, what, is to be0 done wheni a
man wonj't send his oh ildrten to
school, but keep them in a cotton
mill and work them near ly to
death while he loafs and goes to
the dispensary overy paiy day and
spends the most of what they
make. By SO dloing ho is not only
dwarfing the talent of that child
and makwng a slave of it the rest
l t ays, but he is shortening
its life. Perhaps thia father was
raised upI in ignorance, henco he
doin't know anything about thec
imlportance of an <ducaition. The
casual pleasures of this earth are
altlihe is seeking. With this star.
Ing us in the faice every (lay of
our lives doesn't it behoove as to (do
a mething? What is tihe remer~dy?
A compulsory education l aw.
Some ono will say that won't
do. Show us and convince us
where it won't do and1 we will c
They say we can't (10 without
