Can't Get R id of His Nickel.
About a veer ago some wag polished
off a nickel till it only resembled the
eolu of the realm in" size and color.
After it bad dropped into the bottom
of the bebtaii car box the driver eyed
it suspiciously and. evidently thinking
the other aide ol the coin might be all
right, he gave the decisive pull and

grandson, descendant. In England and
other Euro|iean countries the noble and
wealthy generally borrowed their
family names from their landed posses
alona, but in Ireland the names of septa ,
or tribe» were uniformly borrowed
from those of their ancient chiefs and '
anoeators. The famons King, Brian
B«™, who fell at the bettle of Clontar
1« I0M. published an edict that the
descendants of the heads of tribes and
families then in (tower should take
a*me from them, either from the fath- j

names should become hereditary and 1
fixed forever. In some instances, how- i
ever, families who boasted of a diatin
ffulahed ancestor of earlier date as
• um * d his name rather than that of the 1
grandfather or father.
O', or rather Oy, was used in the
sense of grandson by the Scottish High
landars; thus we read of a very old

Though tyranny finds many way# to
enslave man. it can have no direct
power over his thoughts. His actions
may bo restrained, hia speech may be
fettered, his body may be chained, hie
life itself may be taken away, but hi»
thought* no one can interfere with.
They remain his own, and. except with
his will, no one can ever guess whist
they.are. But does this absence of di
rect power i.mure true freedom of
thought? It may at first sight seem to
do so. but a deeper insight into the
nature of thought will show that it I«
itself subject to many influences and
kind involves not only the absence of
artificial restraint, but the presence
of influences favorable to growth
and development. The infant left
without care ia not free; it
has no choioo but to perish.' The
body cau be enslaved by gout or par
alysia as surely as by prisons and
ohaina; both prévaut the healthful
exercise which la tta life. Even lado
lence and aelf-lndulgenoe may prove
equal tyrants. It is only where a
wholesome and active life secures for
the body that varied motion and other
salutary conditions needful to ita beat
development that we can say the free
dom of the body is secured. So the
freedom which thought needs is not
merely the absence of any personal
compulsory force, but the presence of
favorable influences, which shall enabla
it to grow In strength and to perform
ita functions in the most perfect man
ner. Our thoughts should be the
guides of our whole lives; their
province ia to discover truth and to
reject error, to sift the just from the
unjust, the pure from the Impure, th*
better from the worse, and so to apply
them aa to improve character and life,
How important, then. It beeomea that
