Truthtalneu of Children.
By nature children are uot truthful.
Here aud there may be found one that
inherits a rugged houesty from some
/ ancestor long since gone to dust?these
will "tell the truth" under all circum/
stances, in spite of the fear of punish/
ment, in spite of the loss of approba.
/ tion which is commonly so dear to the
/ childish heart. There is withiu them
/ that inborn love of integrity, so great,
so good a gift, that it seems, almost
directlv from God. Children with so
blessed a heritage are saved from shame
in later years in that they have
Ino remembrance of departures from
accurate statements of facts. To how
few children is this good gift made!
The majority of young people, however,
frequently fail to "tell the truth,"
>nH nanallv f/vp fha carina rpacnnfl?a
fear of punishment, the love of appro?;
- batioa, and the indulgence of an imagination
which they are yet too inexperienced
to understand or attempt
In their earliest years children depend
wholly on the adults about them
for their education in truth telling.
If these adults think it as
' reprehensible to break a dish or tear a
dress as to practice deception either by
word or act, and punish accordingly ;
?if they lay blame indiscriminately
on the innocent and the guilty; if
^ these make no allowance for youthful
g imagination?then we cannot wonder
I that children undsr these influences
I are untruthful. Improper "allow'
ance" understand, we do not mean.
i Do not punish the child because he
fails to see things as they are. This
is impossible to some children. Children
love praise as the flowers love
sunshine?they live in the approving
smiles of those about them. To lose
this approbation even for a short time
? ? i? A.I nni) Affon.l
! VWJT pUIIilUl IAJ Hitui, auu viwu
times to avoid this calamity they use
evasion or other forms of deception.
Of course excessive love of approba_
tion is a real weakness, and in an adult
a very serious fault often leading to
sin. Is not the highest kind of truthfulness
that into which one educates
Children do not recognize the tur
pitude of tying. As they grow older
Hb however, they begin to see through a
glassclittle less darkly; they begin
to appreciate integrity of speech
as,fellas of action; they remember
j?#!r failures in this particular, they
f determine to conform their lives to a
ft better standard, and. working alone so
ifer-' Ikr as human help is considered, they
m' drill themselves by a newly awakened
!, consciousness or conscieDciousness
' into men of upright minds and perfect
integrity of speech. This is the
highestand hardest won, and will receive
a speoial reward.
KEptvi* The Catechism.
More and more are we strengthened
in tho belief that the catechism, the
' oral then the written, should be the
I first, the second and the third thing
taught to our children. Next to the
V Bible let the catechism come in before
1 any other book or paper. If we would

By catechism we mean a series of 4,
< . . 5, or 6 as may be required to give a
' compendium of all toe doctrines and
? duties of the Christian religion.
Teachers who teacli children or adults
these catechims do a greater work
for the learners than any college president
or professor who may teach the
scienoes or the languages living or
dead. What the world, including the
mm, church, needs, is the entrance of the
word of Qod into the mind, for that

gravely that the State or city should

On the same line children need bread

"Free schools" whether in college or

doubtless has a good "taxeating"
At the first meeting of the recent
Southern Baptist Convention in Rich'

The District of Columbia wants repIP

It is now an anomaly, being directly

The Distinction Between an Arniy
and a Police Force.
To preceiveclearly the difference between
an army and a police force, it
may be well to see what war is, looking
at it through the eyes of the best
and most eminent French writer on
morals, now living, a man who condemns
dueling, although he lives in a
society that applauds it. In "Elements
of Morals," p. 60, 61, edition of 1884,
Paul Jannet writes, "War is the most
serious and the most solemn exception
to the law which forbids homicide.
Not only does it permit homicide, but
it comands it. The means thereto are,
prepared in public, the art of practicing
them is a branch of education, and
it is glorious to destroy as many enemies
Here is a direct and unequivocal
atobmnnt nf the nnrnnsp of an armv.
Its very object is homicide, killing
men; it not only does this incidentally
but by command. Officers and soldiers
are brought together, educated, drilled
to implicit obedience and to common
action, and supplied with weapons of
all sorts, for attaining the highest success
in killing men; and it is their glory
to kill as many men as possible, so
long as an opposing force.
On the contrary7 the very end for
which a police force exists, is the protection
of the rights of property, person
and life. The arrest of a criminal
is an act of benevolence to him, and to
the community. It stops his career of
violence or other wrong doing against
peaceful citizens; it subjects him to deliberate
and just trial, it brings him to
deserved punishment by fine or imprisonment,
or both. It intensifies his
sense of guilt: it gives him the opportunity
to amend it; it deters others
from like courses. Even though arm
ed with deadly weapons, aconstaoieor
police officer is forbidden to use them
except under extreme circumstances,
and then not with intent to kill, but to
disable an offender. It is a disgrace to
a policeman to kill one whom he is
endeavoring to arrest. He is liable to
prosecution for it, and unless urgent
necessity for the act is shown, he issubjected
to imprisonment for it. Moreover,
the offender knows that in attacking
an officer he is resisting the
ordinance of God, as represented by
the law; and that his attempt on the
life of the officer is absolutely without
Officers and men of the regular army
are very unwilling to perform police or
constable duty, they object that it is
not their business (in this they are
right according to Jannet,) and if obliged
to take part, devolve it upon the
scouts and irregulars, if they may.
They deem their business war, homicide,
not arresting horse thieves or murderers.
A man of peace, therefore,
may serve on a police force when he
would be quite unwilling to be trained
and armed for the very object of being
effective in destroysng men?The
Atlanta, Ga., has tried high license
for four months. The Journal of that
city has complied a table from the police
record showing the comparative
arrests during four months of local option
and four months of license. Thie
table shows an increase in fourmonths
of high license from 273 arrests to 818.
Mrs. Cleaeland, the wife of the
President, has some very good-oldfashioned
ideas about Sabbath. On
that day she does everything in her
power to lessen the work of the servants.

THE8E WORKS WKRE E8TABLLSAED In
184T by Messrs. Geo. Sinclair and James Anderson
and purchased by mo in tlie year 1856, and
from that time till now carried on successfully by
myself. My friends and customers will bear witness
of the large and stupendous jobs executed by me. It
was at my works where the largest and almost only
job of its class ever executed In this city was done
viz.: the making of the pipes for the City Water
Works in the year 1808.
My stock of patterns for ARCHITECTURAL
WORK, COLUMNS for Store fronts, is large and
various, and in RAILINGS for Balconies, Gardens,
and Cemeteries I have the largest variety and most
modem patterns; many of these are patented and I
have purchased the right for this State.
In the machine line I can furnish my patrons with
STEAM ENGINES and BOILERS of any size and
description. My CIRCULAR SAW MILLS have
carried off theprlzeat every State Fair held in this
city, and in their construction I have taken pains to
combine simplicity with the most useful modern Improvements,
and may flatter myself that my CIRCULAR
SAW MILLS find favor with every sawyir who
understands his business.
The manv orders I am steadily receiving for SUGAR
CAN& MILLS prove that the public appreciate
the mills of my make, and so it Is with my GEARING
for HORSE POWERS. GIN WHEELS. GRIST
MILLS-and other MACHINERY.
I have the manufacturing rights of many PATENTS
such as castings for COTTON AND HAT
PRESSES, HAWLEY CORN SHELLER and three
or four FEED CUTTERS and other implements.
I will be pleased to send my circulars to any applicant,
together with price list or estimate. Mv prices

lower even than those of Northern manufacturers, snd
that my work will compare favorably with that of any I
