Manners in Public.
It is too often the case that people !
In pubic places forget how to deport
themselv3. The Globe does not claim
to be an authority on manners, but
it will not be out of p'ace to ca'.l ;
attention to the matter in a ger.er&l
way. Ycung people as a m are
given to much levi:y, and it tickers
into old rge if the chili is net rrcp-

IN MEMORIAM.
Mr. Jordan Helm, Jr., of Franklin,
Tenn., died March 11, 1312, at the
age of sixteen years. I
O dear Jordan boy, you nave gone,
Your cares and sorrows here are
o'er; 1
You have laid by your cumbrous cells,
And we shall see you here no more.
The clouds that love the 'golden tints
Of life's bright, joyous morning
raj; j
How soon thfy vanished from the
skies.
And with them you have passed
away.
And o'er your peaceful, silent dust.
The lovely flowers shall sweetly
bloom.
While angels oft will gather round
And safely watch your lonely tomb.
