In another part of The Sentinel toda
we print an editorial from the Columbi
State of August 29 last, and it is we
worth anyone's time to read, and es
pecially our hoys and young men. It i
headed "A Mother's Love, " that evel
interesting theme we all so love to dwe
upon. The name of "Mother" is th
tenderest, the sweetest of all earthi
names and it awakens and calls up th
fondest memories of that hallowed pas
when her endearing presence and al
fectionate ministry made this earth
heaven. 11er fond caress and tende
sympathies and thousands of acts c
solicitude for her children revealed th
angelhood of her nature in all its beaut
and holiness and made her psesence
safe and precious harbor where he
loved ones could find shelter from th
raging billows of stormiest persecutior
and find solace for all the bruises tha
had been made. Read it, boys-an
girls, too. It will do you good.

The rep~etion of the remark caught hi

he rubbed his hands together and strok<
his hair, and they' did the same. "N<

a slight twinkle of mischief in the
