The resolution offered in the house by
Mr Koikes, of Kichmond, to have the !
text books of the Slate printed In Vir- !
giuia, may not he feasible from a finan
cia' standpoint, but one of the reasons
given by Mr. Koikes for the resolution is
worthy of consideration, viz.. his hope
that it might act as an incentive to the
public scho(.l teachers of Virginia to ,
write text bouks. Situated its they now '
are, with text hooks in use written for :
the most part In the North and printed j
outside the State, it is almost an Impos?
sibility for a Virginia teacher to secure
recognition in this field of work. And
yet we have here in our own State

THE IKON* INDUSTRY.
In a recent article in "the Chattanooga
Times there appears an article which,
without undertaking to~review the pro?
gress of the iron industry during the
ante-bellum days takcs'up 'the industry
from the time of its revival, about 1S70,
and traces it dowu to the present time.
Sorre eight Southern St.ttes are given
as manufacturers of pig iron,and of these
the principle ones ?re Alabama and the
two Virginias. The cnpual employed in
18715 was ?5,400,000, but iu 181)1) it had
leaped from t hose'figures up to ?22,000,
000. This same rate about represents the
value of the output.
The actual number of plants in opera?
tion in ISSO is shown to be less than that
of 1873,but this Is more than compensat?
ed for by the increased capital employed
and by the valuation of the output. The
same ar'icle, iu referring to the manufa
tnre of steel, shows that in 18S0 there
were but few plants in existence, but in
1800, there wute thirty-live plants iu ac?
tual operation, the capital employedjjng
If figures mean anything, the above
showing as set forth prove very conclu?
sively thai the South is no longer to be
looked upon merely as a cotton producer,
but that she has entered the contest for
recognition as the producer ot that of
which lor a long time the "North has had
a monopoly. The prevailing low prices
of iron at ".the present has caused a cor?
responding slacking up of its production,
but when increased demand shall raise
tin;se prices it .will he found ^thut the
South'from the impetu a already received
will lind herself occupying a still stron?

TO EVERY MAN HIS WORK.
From the time when Hod created man
and placed him in the Garden of Eden,
on down through succeeding ages to the
present hour, the countless millions who
have peopled our earth hi?ye each en
tered upon life with a specific, well de?
fined sphere which he WS! to (ill, or leave
to bo forever unfilled.
Nor that the man whom a gr?at destiny
might have awaited has always been the
out: to reali/.e it. The opportunity may
have been given but not seized; the mo?
ment passed, leaving only, a blank,which
could uot be filled in the. sane manuer
or to the same degree by any other of all
earth's inhabitants. In line, man's woik
is individual in its character.
The external world will furnish us
something analogous to this, lor it would
seem to be a principle underlying tbe
grand economy of the universe that the
forces which go , to make, up its mighty
machinery should have some special
office assigned to each, and upon the. per
forma nee or non-pcrtorinance of tho du?
ties thus imposed depends for it- result
the einciency of the work done.
Let. ns tut, however, make the mistake
of measuring results by the forces em?
ployed in producing them. The little
cloud th*,t goes floating by on a summer's
day may be but upon n mission, upon the
fulfillment of which rests the fate of a
continent. The throbbing, pulsing tides
of ocean, as they ebb and How. are each
doing a work which no other of nature's
forces, however potent,could accomplish.
The fate of that oneJJlittle star, glimmer?
ing sc> faintly in the far-oil firmament,
one might think of little moment when
compared with the blazing sapphires,
wheeling and Hashing about it. ^o long
as it keeps the pathless track assigned it,
all is well, ami baitnony and order are
preserved; hut let. it i,vnry but a hair's
breadth from the path of its orbit and
tbts equipoise of a planetary system is
pi.iced in jeopardy. Anil thus we might
pass from forcu to force, throughout the
realm of nature, and wa ".would discover
that thu Btnal'est atom in it is doing
what it, and it alone, could do.
And so it is with man's persona' work.
When taken alone its performance or
non-performance may seem a matter of
little significance, bnt taken in connec?
tion with tho work of thosu around him
what a inighty]| factor it then becomes!

nolle Sie Co.,
How few of us ever realize the fearful re?
sponsibility of our mission ou earth I Mr.
Webster was once asked, what to him
was the greatest problem ever "presented
for solution, und the man whoso massive
intellect hail grappled with some of the
gravest questions of "state that have ever
confronted our nation, replied without a
moment's nesitntton: ."My own personal
responsibility to n y Maker." And this
was but another way of saying, "the
conscientious discharge of duties which
I, and I alone, can perform." Every day
of our lives Bees some new duty confront
us, but does its close always see it per?
formed. Duty implies obligation. Were
there no such thing as obligation, there
could*.be no such thing as duty. Now,
from the very nature of our surround?
ings, as we have said before, there are
certain duties restiug upon each of us
which we only can perform. It is true
that the nature of these duties is as
different as Hie character "of men "them?
selves: but once let a man feel that he has
a specific work to"*perform, "and then it
behooves him to do that work with all
tho energy and power of his being. It
may not always be pleasant of perform
nnce: but let him persistently refuse to
do it, and he mav so .?iunt liis'petcep
tive faculties as finally to fail to recog
oi/.e any obligation whatever n>'m resting
upon him. It is this failure to recognize
personal responsibilities that has Oiled
the world with character less nonentities.
It is the earnest conviction of personal
work to be doue that has given I he world
its mea of true greatness and worth.
1 hen.if we h ive not always doi.e so, li t
US cast about us and see what part of
this busy world's work is o'irs: let US see
for what our gifts and talents best lit us:
and having done this, let whatever we
' And to do, be done with our might.
