A Kansas editor and n rich widow were engaged to be married when tho neighbors began to talk about it, chant ng that ho was marrying her riches The young editor was vexed at this, of .niiiaii nnd in order to show up its un- truthfulness he persuaded his aftinity to turn all her worldly pelf over to hur grown daughter and that he would prove to the world sincerity of his affections. The trusting widow did so, and the first night tho editor and the young ftlrl loped, and In the corning the widow pied the forms in the office and would have pied the editor if sho could have found him.

As there are seven more years in the present century, it is to bo hoped the commission will bo sblu to complete their labors by tho year IDOL The Good Book Bays tho commission was, "Go yo into all tho world and preach the gospel to every creature." In Cincinnati on Sunday, tho llUh, some of thu subjects treated in several of the pulpits were as follows: "Will tho Coming Man use Stimulants'."' "Bgyptian Mythology," "Little by Little," "Hustling," "Tho Successful Business Man," 'Tho Budding Rose of Affection." All thosu are good subjects for ordinary lectured, but what connection they liavu with tho "gospel" is not easy to determine. There is a successful business man in Indiana, who is a wealthy distiller, beer brewer, street railway owuer and what not. It is said that he owns an elegant residence, but does not know what homo is. He is over ou the run, lives in n constant strain, wastes two hours out of '-' I in sleep and thinks his daily bread depends upon the number of hours he puts in. Possibly the Cincinnati sernun on "Tho Successful Business Man" had some reference to the iruntloman from Hoosierdom; if bo, it is nil right. It is a good thing to be a "hustler," but a better one to be "a successful business man" in this age of selfishness and greed. An Bxcuhbion to Cincinnati.

I see from an announcement made by the State Superintendent of Public Instruction that the State Board of Examiners will require of applicants n better acquaintance than heretofore with diacritical marks, menial arithmetic nnd the history of Kentucky. I understand this to apply to county examinations especially. The State Superintendent also suggests that if those who expect to teach aro not attending n spring training school, they had better organize a little training term of their own. Especial attention will be paid to the formation of manuscript. My Board of Examiners for this year will be composed of teachers actually engaged in thu common school work, nnd who are well up in tho requirements of the State Board's demands. W. F. McClaiiv, Co.

As the new law reduce the tax from 75 cents to 471 cents, the annual revenuo lost to the State, if the banks successfully resist the franchise tax, will be about $100,000.
