Business called us last week to our
neighboring little city. We went down
on the night, of tho* storm, and the
lightnings played and the storm King
raged, hut we had travelled so little
lately that wo Imagined that abroad
these were normal condit ions we were
to moot. Greenwood is a handsome '
town and there is much to admire.?
They have a j< wol ot a hotel and are
very justly vain of it, and Brinson, the
landlord, eives you a hearty greeting;
everything is as neat as a pin
and you arc happy and want to stay
ovor. They have built a now
Court lIou?o and tho grounds are spa
cious and umbrageous; the great square
is In orderly trim, the streets well do
lined, and notably the line shade trees
uro porfect and not a scar or maim on
oak, elm or poplar to mar their grace

A bird's-eye view showed us great
stretches of wide and handsome streets,
magnificent business houses, very neat

the whirling wheels of industry that
make all this taste and elegance possl

wo recalled that the Ballovs, PlllSODS,

others, were of the Aladdin group that
helped to rear the castles, with >Vbar
ton and Jenkins and a score of others,
new comers, to keep up the good work
Our stay III this pleasant little city was
Bhort, but it was delightful, If only for
a moment to greet a number of old
VOtS, K8 a rule, halo and hearty; as
Sheriff Hob McOasHn, <'!erk Turner,
Blake, Pin.-on, Vlnney Crlllio, and 0X
Beoretary of State, I?an Tompkin?, an

to put your best foot foremost and lo

to lind that your own crows are not ne

Why is it that woman has always
been more beautiful than man? In
human beings tho attractive qualities
have always been on the side of the
female. Why Is It? Without wishing
to cast any aspersion on the members
of the superior sex. we may fairly an
1 swer that It Is because they have hith
erto been the less educated. But wom
an's Ideas are changing. She has lis
tened to the voice of the tempter, whis
pering In her ear all sorts of sweet fal
lacies about equality of the sexes, In
tellectual development and its neces
sity, and the like, and she has yielded
to the temptation. And the result of
this will be that she will lose her
beauty. She will suffer in appearance
ns mna has done and Is doing, and In
the course of time the extremely civ
ilized races of mankind will be ugly?
Irretrievably and lamentably ugly.?
