checked, and no one would gb flirt her

writer. Hill what is l he correct plan';
Prohibition, in my; opinion, is inad
visable, aiitl again, ii is punishing
the iiiiu cent fur the guilty. Haidng

nies monopolies by putting the busi
ness in ihe, hands ofn few.
The true plan appears to me to be to
legislate against the drunkard in
stead <d' Hie whiskey seller. Aich
should not be treated as childreii,
but as responsible agents, and every
thing might to be done to cultivate
and streng!lieu the selisO of indi
vidual lesponsibility. Lei; it. be

peace of the community tiny more
titan he has the right to steal. If a
man is caught drunk on the streets,
or if he creates a t u rtuoil in his hdtisc,
let him be promptly taken tip and
suvercly punished by line or im
prisoninciii, or in aiiy other way that
l ho law may fix.
Ii is said by sonic I hat tlie passion
or taste I'm' liquor is so great that no
punishment will clu ck I he drunkard,
tracts prove to the contrary. The
laste for liquors is only partial, hill
there are passions which arenhiver

diligence of which is rare. And
why'/ Hceaiisf it, is punishable by
lynching or by certain death by leg

the law. The punishment for drunk

MIL1 HO YE Y?U.U FARMS.
Let our people devote more of their
attention to improvement and ma
terial development, and less to poli
ties, and ii will be better for our
country,. Wo have inndc vast strides
in farming, but there is more yet to
1)0 done. It would pay us if our
fields were made like garden spots.
If we can malic one acre produce
what twro.or three now produce, il
would ?o easy to calculate what we
would save in the expense of labor.
Why spend the labor on two or three,
acres Uk make what one acre can
make? Besides this, wo should
introduce machinery to manufacture
what we want at home. We spend
too mtroll for Northern articles. It
should be the pride of every farmer
to innkf his farm .self-sustaining. In
this way we will build up the South.

brows, plowed deep furrows on her
cheeks, but is she not sweet and
beautiful now? The lips are thin
anil shrunken, but those are the lips
which have kissed many a hot tear
front the childish cheeks, and they
are the sweetest lips in tbe world; the
eye is dim, yet it glows with the soft
radiance that can never fade. Ah,
yes, she a dear old mot her. The
sands of life are nearly run out, but,
feeble as she is, she will gc further
and reach down lower for you than
any other person on earth. You can
not enter a prison whose bars can
keep her out! You cannot mount a
scnllbbl Loo high for her to reach that
she may' kiss ami bless you in evi
dence of her deathless love. "When the
world shall*despise and forsake you;
wheL it leaves you by the wayside to
perish unnoticed, tin; dear old mother
will gather you in her arms and carry
you honte and tell you of all your
virtues until you almost forget your
soul is disfigured by vices. Love her
tenderly, ,and cheer the declining
years with' holy devotion.

Tin: Foirrnv or Fa i; mi no.? It is in
strict accordance with the nature of
things that. Will Carleton, who has
written such sweet ballads of farms,
farm life and families, never owned a
farm, nivor lived on one, and never
had any wife or family. No man who
ever lived and worked on a.farm could
extract poetry from breaking your
back with a scythe, wearing out your
running gear behind a plow, break

with the mercury below zero, pick

ing ill tin; barn in summer to get rid
of t he mosquitoes. There is no poe

farmer. The only people who can get,

never saw it, and the imagination of
such would extract.an epic front the
life of a car driver.

RELIGION OF THE PRESIDENTS
Washington and G'arfieht were the
only ones who Were church member^
but all, one excepted, were men who
revered Christianity. Adams mar
ried a minister's daughter, and was
inclined to Unitarianism-. Jcllcrson
was not a believer, at least white he
was chief magistrate. Madison's
early connections were Presbyterian.
.Monroe is said to have favored the
Episcopal Church. 'John Qtiiney
Adams was like bis father. Jackson
was a Methodist, and died in the.
communion of that church. Van
Huron was brought up in the Re
formed Dutch church) but afterward
inclined to the Episcopal Church.
Harrison leaned toward the Motho*
(listChurch,and Tyler was an Epis
palian. Polk was baptized by a
.Methodist preacher after his term of
olltce expired. Taylor was inclined
to the Episcopal communion. Fill
more attended the Unitarian church,
and Franklin Pierce was a member^
but hot a communicant of a Con
gregationalist church at Concord.
Buchanan was a lircsbytcrhin. Gem
Grant atti uds the Methodist church,
and President Garlicld is a member
of the Church of the Disciples.
An Evil. O.vti-rx.?Oh, the comet!
W hat a surprising thing it is, and
how it does olfect humanity. Not
much wonder that it is considered a?
omen of evil.
"My son, where were you so late
'?Out looking at the comet, father?"'.
'?Daughter, your visitor must have
been unusually interesting last night;
to have kept you up so long;"
'Ob, no, inothct, we were only
looking at the comet."
"Husband, I'm astonished at the'
hours you've got to keeping. Yvhyi
it must have been three o'clock be
fore yon tame in this morning. What
could have detained you so long?"
"Now, don't worry yourself, dear;
I was only looking at the comet."
And so it goes, night after night
and day after day. The comet is
doing 11 sight of mischief in one way
and another, especially about Orange*
?Goto Eros' if you want to keep
cool. He gives you splendid ice cream
and soda water.
