A Romance in Real Life.
After n day's work In llio school
room I Ih1 n nomadic life, t liml it
jilcasmit to have no jmrtlcular station
but to take tip quarters first in one
placo nml tlien in another, as enprieo
rimy tlietnto. In this wn.v I etui
study individuals, their diameter mid
customs, from different jioints of viow.
During ono of these oxteniK)ro visits,
after Inmig snfoly ntui plensnntly
domiciled for tlio night, I naked my
hostess to toll mo the romance of her
lifi. She seemed to ho tthout thirty
years of ngo, with lingering traces of
her former beauty ns wns shown by
her even white teeth, nnd her bhiek
hair nnd eyes, the liittor showing a
depth of passion nnd nn undiiunted
energy of purpose Sho wns this wife
of a well to-do "squire", their family
consisting of threo boys, bright, in.
telligent lnd, two of whom were fav
oiito pupils of mine.
Haviug touched on the minor do
tnils of childhood, ancestry, etc., in re
gard to her romance, she said, "A big
lueuting wuz to commence on Friday,
but mo nnd Hud had sot the time fer
Thursdn Now Pup had n favorite
preacher and he sorter sot his heart
on that preacher a savin of tho cere
mony. Pap was kinder deef and Bud
told mo ns how he would git tho
mngistrit and come to our house on
Thursday cus ho didn't bolieve in git
tin married at meetin, hit was bad
luck. Now folks cused mo nrter
wards us bein at tho head o' that but I
swan I never thot o'nothin. Shore
enulT Bud como right up to timo with
the Iwys and gals along fer wniters.
I was riletl and stubbarn cas Pan was
tleef ns n jKjst and tlidn't understand
the nrrnnirenients nnd had irnuo oir
to work and told mo to wait fer the
preacher. I was in the kitchen pceliu
taters far dinner and looked out and
seed them iicoinin, by gosh! How
mad I was, but, cotch a sight of the
mngistrit and I allowed thnt I could
look as purty as they could sassy,
and fo I concluded to get ready.
Now I nllers had thought that tho
i , -o
'Siuiro" was a handsomer feller than
Bud. Ho wns jist head ami shoulders
i. l... i.,i ,.
straight way o'lookin nt you it nllers
mnde me feel quare and nervy liko
about tho heart. Well we wulked out
nter tho vard and when wo came face
to face with the magistrit, my face
burnt like fire and I couldn't help but
wish that him and Bud could swap
places. I think ho must have noticed
it for he hud a sad kind o'look in his
eyes like he wuz sorry about s'mthin.
Then he commenced to say tho cere
mony, '"If anyone has any jections
to this match let 'em say so now or
heararter forever hold his peace."
Bud retched for his licenso and I
hearin him give a long low whisper
and say "Wnl Sis, dogbite me if that
don't Bottle it shore and sartiu".
Como to find out ho had loft his
license to hum in his tothcr coat
forgittin to take em out when he
changed his rig for the weddin. Vnl
there were some fun and stir I tell ye;
some wer fer puttin it oil"; soma wuz
fer gittin new license to town it bein
closer. I felt liko I dunno what. I
looked at tho magistrit ami I seed
that sad look had cleau gone and he I
aigged ou Bud to go for his liceuse
and he did. Arter Bud left the magis
trit setl as how ho would try to cher
me a little in my sad disappintment,
but he soon found out that
atakin of it to heart bad,
I wa'mt ,
I cinn'f .
know how it is but I beliovo when
two hearts git tied up in true lovo
thar aint no power ou earth as kin
keep em apart. Wul we Bantered off
to the giardin to look at tho blossoms i
and I do rally beliovo every bird in I
thounyvarso was a singin in them
rosy bushes, I never keen! such music
afore Finally we concluded to take
a little ride to pass off the timo till Bud j
got back with tho licenso. Tho horses j
had been saddled fur mo mid Bud to '
ride to tho infair, but when we got
started we rodo right on across the
line into old Virginity nbout five
miles mid were married aforo Bud
got back with tho liceuse.
Now sister Nancy sho nllers had
thot a sight well o'Bud mid ho nater-1
ally look up to her and idler took her !
vice on matters in ginernl. So it bein
late when Bud got buck arter stoppiu
at tho grocery and foolin along not a

I know noliody in the world thnt
has n position more full of daily care
nml at tin; same lime of daily oppor-
(unity than the teacher of tho tlfrtrM
ncumt. All of them realize the "care" ', its ehnrncter is very dilTcrcnl. It
hut some, I think, forget the grand makes a heavy sKiutaneous growth
opportunity. The work each tiny , on Ileitis from whieh wheat, tmts, com,

What an some of tho teacher's
wenpous against discouragement f
First, 1 think, Is miHtntm rain; that
very uncommon thing by which we
look nt js-ople and things from some
jollier stnud siiut than that of our
own personal interest. And how
much of life isspolhsl by little envies,
, nnd jealousies. SoiiioIkmIv has slighted
ins! Some look or word is interpreted
I to mean more bv far than was intend -
'ttl. When we eultlvHte the habit t)f
j simply doing our work with honesty
and singleness of purHo we shall
have less trouble.
Stroud. Imagination. It will
help us to put ourselves into others'
places and when mixed with love, be
. comes syuipnthy, ono of the finest
eleimints of human ehnrncter, for It
blesses him that gives uud him thnt
Thin). Knthiihinsin. It in so
much easier to tlo a thing when wo
put our whole In-art into it than when
we do it in it half nml half way. If
your school doesn't seem to be "mov
ing" ns you would liko to see it,
think of some new, fresh plan, some
needed improvement nnd thou o to
work to carry it out. Nothing carries
tilings with, or Is'lore, it ns does vig-
orou-, energetic spirit - the lire of en -
thiisinsm .which s'mll burn tip the
dHlnosof discouragement in your
own heart .s well. i
Fourth. Ottler. Not the dry rou
tine of some school-rooms but the 1
juiet, spirited ryttem that must be
understood and plnuiifd for by tho i
teacher, uud co-0xTuted iu by every 1
child if the Ust work is to Iki nccom-1
plishetl. Ono practical thing, denr!
teacher, hi nut let any recitation
1k interrupted by pupils running to
the teacher to ask words, or help or
IK'rmission of any kind unlets in case
of sickness or accident. Tho recitn
tiou hour should Isj mcrrtl to the ;if
n7 m the chit.
Fifth. Cheerfulness and the habit
of looking ou tho bright side of all
"Suppose tho world don't please you
Nor the way some people do,
Do you think that all creation
Will Iki altered just for yout
And isu't it, my boy or girl,
Tho wisest, bravest plan,
Whatever comes or doesn't como
To do tho best you emit"
Teach this stanza to your children
and live the spirit of it yournlf.

ly. It makes its lnst growth on tho

coast, w here it furnishes three fourths
of the hay, and whero many of tlm
planters say they wish for no better

' Iovtr is usually found on tin

yield, nnd is claimed by mauy

most profitable hay which can be
grown on thin soils for feeding to
