Frc1 Shell, a young man h? his teens,
vou of Capt. G. W. Shell, of thio co n
tj. treat to Atlaniu recently. On the
evening of tho 15th inst., he attended a
Method let Church service. Fred found
himself in the neighborhood of a hand
some sweet-slxteon Atlanta belle and
had passed to her a note asking leave
to escort her home. Ono of twoyoung
gentlcmon passed the note and the
other sniggered. Tho pretty inUs
Bm?od. It seems that Fred was not up
on the right thing in Atlanta. A po
liceman way worshipping near by who
took it all in and after the service es
corted Fred to tho police etatton under
a charge of disturbing tho publio w or
ship. Fred made the necessary deposit
and went home, having loarned tho les
son that in Atlanta decorum must bo
observed, at loast in church. The
young man who sniggered and his com
panion were likewise given a lesson in
church behavior. The Atlanta papers
made a parade of tho incident and em
phasize tho fact of Frod being tho
son of an ox-Congressman, as if that
fact should bar tho young gentloman
from boing gallant to a sweot creature.
Nothing is said, but it is assumed that
tho little lady who smiled a sweet as
sont escaped tho virtous indignation
of tho righteous prosecutors. The won
der is that a Laurens boy, should bo go
ing into ccstaeles over other than our
own dear darlings.
Tho fact that Napoleon's military

Tho crowning merit of a humorous
work is that tho author should know
where to draw the line, and at that
precise point it has hero boon drawn.

As my pupils have favored me
with a holiday, I will spend part of
the time in writing a few lines for
the Teacheis' Column.
We are having beautiful weather
now, but I fear it will not prove
an advantage to some of I he coun
try schools, as in' many localities
the older pupils have to leave school
to assist in the farm work. But
even if the schools do decline in
numbers teachers should see that
the school work does not become
tedious and irksome. Make the
latter port of the term as interest
ing and attractive as the first?more
so, if possible.
In order to make the teaching of
any study a success a teacher needs
not only thorough preparation, but
pleniy of enthusiasm for the work.
When about to take up a new sub
ject a favorable fust impression is
worth a great deal. Let a child
once get the idea that he hates a
study and it will seem hard and dry
all the way through.
Endeavor to keep the child's cu
riosty excited and flavor the dry
facts with bits of interesting and
impressive stories, so that the les
son will not drag, neither will it be
Take Geography for instarcc.?
First, let the map of a country be
thoroughly studied, locating the
different countries or States, and
learning something interesting of

each and compare them to those of
It avails little to load the pupil's
memory with a long list of produc
tions having no interest for him.
He commits to memory for to day's
lesson, to morrow he forgets.
Relate interesting stories of the
home life of the different nations,
their occupations, customs, dress,
etc. Compare child life ol foreign
countries to that of our own, de
scribing their toys, games and cos
tumes. The child will then realize
that the country is something more
than a piece of paper consisting of
various colors, peppered with black
clots called by hard names, and
traversed by crooked black lines
running here and there, with some
more hard names.
The girls will long to visit the
"City of the Sea," with its streets
of water and pretty gondolas. Some
of the children will admire the
camel, and desire to join a caravan
across the Great Desert. The boys
will want to hunt tigers in India.
If the children know that they
will be called upon to reproduce a
talk they will be more attentive.
Train pupils to be on the alert.

uoea Advice \o une f oiiugr.
te industrious and economical
Waste neither time nor money in
small and useless pleasures and in
diligences. If the young can be
induced to save the moment they
enter on the paths ot life the way
will become easier before them, and
they will not fad to obtain a com
petency, and that without denying
themselves any Of the real necessa
ries and comforts of life. To in
dustry and economy, and self-re
liance. Do not take too much ad
vice. Tiie business man mufit keep
the helm and btccr bis oy'.n ship.
In early life every one /iould be
taught to think for hp/self. A
man's talents arc neycr Lvwught out
until be is thrown to aonic extent
upon bis own resources. If in ev
ery difficulty he has only to his
principal, and then implicitly obey
the directions be may receive, he
will never acquire that aptitude of
perception necessary to those who
bold important stations. A certain
degree of independent feeling is
essential to the full development of
the intellectual character.
Tilings a Farmer Should Not Do.
A farmer should never under
take to cultivate more land than he
can do thoroughly ?half tilled land
is growing poorer?well tilled land
is constantly improving.
A farmer should never keep
more cattle, sheep or bogs, than he
can keep in good order; an animal
in high order the first of December,
is already half wintered.
A farmer should never depend on
bis neighbor for what be can, by
care and good management, pro
duce on his own farm ; he should
never beg fruit while he can plant
trees, or borrow tools while he can
make or buy; a high authority has
said, the borrower is a servant to
The farmer should never be so
immersed in political matters as to
forget to sow bis wheat, dig his
potatoes and kank up his cellar;
nor should be be so inattentive to
theni as to remain ignorant of those
great questions uf National and
Stale policy which will always ag
itate more or less a free people;
No farmer should allow the re
proach of neglecting education to
lie against himself or family; if
knowledge is power, the beginning
of it should be early and deeply
laid in the district school.
