tions the Smiths, eocs of the late
James Smith and brothers of Alexis J.

the way, although the War prevented
him from obtaining the advantages
that his younger brothers afterwards
had, is a man of uncommon strength of
mind and thoroughly informed. In na
tive endowments, he is doubtless the
equal of his gifted brothers. Here is
what The Journal says:
In grouping these men, ts a listener

Smith brothers were the first men

He taught his first school in tho town
of Greenwood, Landon F. Smith is

The hand of a small boy wavered for
an Instant over a plate of eakes before
ho took one. "Thanks," ho said, ntter
his momentary hesitation, "I'm sure I
can manage it if 1 stand up."
Another boy, still smaller, who had
stuffed systematically, at last turned
to his mother and sighed: "Carry me
home, mother; but, oh, don't bend mo!"
The average boy in Yorkshire knows
why he attends these feasts and does
not relish being furnished forth scan

who was glowering mysteriously, "llnve
you had a good tea?" the curate asked.
"No," said the boy, In an aggrieved

MILLIONAIRE'S POOR STOMACH.
The worn-out stomach of the over

the evil attondant on the possession of
great wealth. Hut millionaires are not

stomachs. The proportion is far more
among the toilers. Dyspepsia and in

people, and they suffer far worse tor
