Saturday, October 29, 1881. Entered at the Post Unite, Stephens City. Va.. ns second clnss matter. We have made it a rule, from Which we will not deviate, that all papers sent lo n ilistance—excepting those to be paid for hi fi'ends residing here— must be paid for iii advance. i i i ii ii iii Scarcely three months ago the pres ent writer had the extreme pleasure of introducing himself to a craft who profess to wield the cereberal scalpel who profess to bfl able to turn the ect'e of public opinion, who pro- to be the chroniclers of the great events in each act of the world's great drama. The writer reverts to his former in troduction to this craft with a species of pleasure much akin to m inly pride, and now has a very distinct remetn brence and, by the way, a very kind ly feeling for a certain modest, unas suming individual who, on the 23d ol July last, performed the introduction. We think he was known by the very polite namu "daltitory." To-day the same writer will lav I down his pen forever to the community that have watched wi h sone interest, (he may flatter himself to say) his first career in journalism. And he feels that the citizons who evince a disposi tion to enterprise and thrift, will think they may, through curiosity or other wise, glance over the old files of the Star, and find his name upon the first copy ever issued in Newtown. There is a peculiar pleasure when, upon removing from a place of late' you upon your destined road, and dis real interest, and real good wishes.and whom I have not given satisfaction."' j from Stephens City, with these plea sures to cheer him on the way. He feels very happy to t-tafe that the Star, will loose none of its form er brilliancy, in its present hands, but its present facilities for local and edi torial capacity. Thanking the pttbfic for their gen erous support and many kind words during his litertry efforts here, and wishing them one and all the best corn honor to ll' , Your obedient servant, Chas. E. Painter. The Peabody Fund. The annnal meeting of the board of Trustees of the Peabody Fund for the advancement of educational advanta ges in the South was held at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York, week before last, the chairman, Hon. Kobt. C. V inthrope presiding. Dr. J. M. L. Curry, theOen. Agent, submitted his report, showing that the disbursements of the income of the fund lo the different states since February 1, 1881, had been as follows: West Virginia $2,000, Virginia $5,150,N0rth 125, Georgia $5,300, Florida $2,000, Alabama $.1,800, Mississippi $3,950, I ansas, $4,000, Tennessee total $50,375. The report states that the instruction of the Boaid to apply the greater portion of the fund hereafter, j to the education of teachers for public schools had met with general approval. L&»t year institutes, aided or su.st ii. d by th> fund, were held in all but three O." the Southern States. In nearly all the States where normal schools do not east the superintendents are urging! the subject upon their respective leg islatures. On motion of Biship Whit tle, the General Agent was authorized I to distribute 50 silver medals lo the I graduates of th* normal schools and 500 bronze medals to the pupils of the common schools.

The first tiling to be done is to catch him (and don't you forget it). Many a good husband is spoiled in cooking. Some women keep them in hot water while others freezs them with conju gd coldness; some smother them with contention, and still some keep them ii a pickle all their lives. These wo men serve them with tongue sauce. Now it is not to be supposed that husbands will be tender and c.rod if treated this way ; but they are on the cmtrary very delicious when treated as follows : Get a large jar called the jar of careful I ness, whioh all good housewives have on hand ; place your husband in it and place him near the fire of conjugal love; let the fire be pretty hot, especially let it be clear; above all let the heat be constant; cover him over with the spice of pleas | mtry, and if you add kisses and other | confections, let them be accompanied j with a sufficient portion of secrecy, mixed with prudence and moderation.
