GOLDRBOBO N. C, JUNE 2, 1S92. A WORD TO THE GRADUATES. The Ethics of Practical Life Presented For Their Consideration and Encour agement. It is probably within the limits cf truth to say ' that the colleges and high schools of the country will send forth into the world from their curreufcommencement" season seve ral thousand young meuwhose educa tion is"Gnished," and who are, there fore, almost as helpless as new born babes in the great busy business world nr.-mml them, into which they are ushered for the first time as full fledged urai to Tiare their arms in the battle of life and solve the prob lem of existence for themselves. Don't blame the colleges and schools, however, for the helpless ness of their offspring. Those insti tutionshave fulfilled their contracts in supplying their students with the tools of knowledge. How the tools will be used depends entirely upon the boys. For it must always be borne in mind that th3 mission of the teacher is not so nuch to impart information as to teach the young how to acquire and employ it. The trroduate eoes forth into the world proud, and justly proud, o his triumphs in the narrow field of his past life. It is very easy, but at the same time very silly to ridicule him for that innocent vanity. It is more generous, as well as more just to aDDlaud his pride and encourage him to further endeavor in the high or ind harder road before him. He will find it hard enough at best Perhaps the hardest part of it will be the dismay and mortification with which he will let.rn for the first time that his poor little store of scholar ship is of such slight apparent worth in the creat and busy world. Xo ("J a doubt he has had his dreams of sue cess; and if he has sometimes enter tained the nossibihtv of failure in x ' the more ambitious spheres, he h complacently thought to himself: "Well, at the worst, I have always my Educatiou to fall back on Poor lad. he does not know that the flattest and emptiest of all air cushions to break the fall of ambi Hon is that same "Education". It will surprise and wound him when write is to write, if one has anything to say and knows how to say it. Success in literature 'comes most slowly, and is never very dazzling at best. Literature is a profession, and is not mastered in a year, nor in two, nor, spef.kin" generally, in twenty. Small beginnings and slow returns is the rule in that as in other pro fessions. Merit wins, but wits slowly. It is an tip-hill road that lies before the young graduate, but let him not be disheartened, if he finds it hard and steep and very, very long. Above all, let him dis regard the shallow sneer. at his col lege learning, remembering that he "laughs best who laughs last, 1 and that his education is going to stand him in good stead some day, provided he keep on adding to it every day; and he need not be surprised that oaks take longer to mature than weeds. women generally, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the greatest earthly boon, being unequaled as an appetizing cordial and restorative tonic. As a soothing and strengthening nervine, "Favorite Prescrip tion is unequaled and invaluable in allay ing and subduing nervous excitability, ex haustion, prostration, hysteria, spasms and other distressing, nervous symptoms, com monly attendant upon functional and organic disease.

JONATHAN PEAKS JN, adm he is told that one language, and that one the vernacular, i3 sufficient for the boy who is set to copying law documents, sweeping out count ing-rooms, or running earands. But let him not be discouraged. The Education which has seemed such deceitful acquisition is worth every panuy and hour it has cost, if he be willing to bide his time. The most uncultivated and hard-headed busi ness man that he may meet will re spect him secretly for that same use less knowledge. He may not be able to dust a desk or direct an envelope a bit the better for his ability to con strue Latin or to reel off the history of Patagonia; but if the stuff is in him, if he has learned to handle the tools of knowledge, and has not. merely stowed away a lot of literary lumber in a wooden head he will not spend many months in dusting or directing. Brains will win. There was a painter who mixed his colors with them once, "But the professions are all over crowded", cry ten thousand anxious and aimless holders of sheepskins. The quick and not very reasonable answer is: "There is always room at the top," or,"Learn a trade; a good workingmau never need starve". It may be fairly retorted that the top is a long way off, and that it is not so easy for a youth of twenty years or so to get a chance to learn a trade. Fortunately, or unfortunately, each one must work out that problem for himself. If he be determined, he can make a place for himself in the trade or profession for which he has an aptitude. He must expect to en dure priyations and plenty of them; but they will not hurt him. Xo success is worth much without them. If he has, or thinks he has, a taste for literature, it will save him and his friends much trouble to under stand at the cutset that there is onlv one way of following that career. "The way to resume is to resume". said Horace Greeley. The way to Col. Skinner ami the Tliirrt Party. Special Cor. State Chronicle. Tahboro, IST. C, May 2G On my way home from the Haleigh con vention 1 heard the rumor that Polk had Col. Harry Skinner's written consent to head the delegation from this State to the Omaha Convention. This report was being circulated by out-spoken third party men on the uithoritv oi Col. Polk, in view or Col. Skinners utterances in the Democratic convention, and in pri vate conversation with him myself as late a3 midnicrht Thursday I de nounced the report as untrue. heard this statement relative to the matter from Mr. W. W. Farmer, of Wilso county. He said he was in the office of the Progressive Farmer about 5 o'clock Thursday evening ot convention week engaged with the editor of that paper when Col. Skin ner came in and went at once into the private office of Col. Polk. That in the course of an hour the came out, Skinner leaving the building. In the course of . conversaiion, very shortly thereafter, Polk expressed himself well satisfied with, the prog ress of affairs and remarked that Skinner would head the delegation to the Omaha convention. Farmer rpplied that he could not believe it after Skinner's speech in the Demo cratic convention. Polk replied, 'well, you cannot doubt after this," at the same time holding out a pa per writing, the contents of which Farmer did not read, bearing Skin ner's signature. Immediately after learning this I sent the following telegram: Claytox, N. C, May 20. Col. Harry Skinner (on board train) Hen derson, N. C. It is said on board train that Polk has your written con sent to head the delegation from this State to the Omaha convention. Wire ir e a denial at Rocky Mount". To this I received the following reply : "Middlebury, N. C, May 20. Rocky Mount, 1ST. C. It is a lie. Harry Skisker". Subsequent to this the chairman of the People's party publishes the list of the delegates to the Omaha Notice.
