These thoughts were forcibly im pressed upon our mind as we wended our way homeward last evening. The circumstance that caused these pleas- ant memories, was the appearance of two young Americans, carrying a jack- o'lantern, made out of a pumpkin. Who has not tasted the joys of using his jack-knife in jonnection with his artistic taste after sneaking a pumpkin out of the cellar, and carefully closing the wood-shed door, reveled in the de lightful occupation of making a jack- o'lantem ? To us these thoughts encompass the sweetest and some ot the bitterest mo ments that we can recall of our boy hood days. When we saw that boy carrying with care that pumpkin, we boy, who some thirty-three years ago, SI,ent a large portion of one day in per lectmg such a niece oi work, we re- member distinctly how we sneaked in to mir frnui.linntl.Pr's nantrv und rer- o - 1 "Jt x - loined a tallow candle that had but a short time previous been taken from the mold and hung up to dry. How- Jong that afternoon seemed to us. And when the shades of evening gathered, and the whip-poor-will began its plain tive song, how, with a quickly beating heart we sneaked down to the farm gate that gave entrance to the barn yard, and placed the efforts of our after- noon s work upon the gate post, and at the same time imagining the terror that wouUl strike our tlear old grand-father when he returned from town that night. This was one of the happiest moments.

This was one of the itterest moments. child Training. jt js hardly probable that the best way to bring up a boy is by hooping him up in a hogshead and feeding him through the bungle hole, but when one encounters some ot the kids in Plymouth at times he almost feels that the hogshead method as a desirable one. It is true, even the civilized people of this intelligent and culti vated city are not so far removed from the aborignes, that the utmost refinement is instinctive, and it is hardly fair to conJemn and find fault with a child when it is evident his parents are largely to blame for their slackness in proper training. If old people do not respect the rights of society and the public it can hardly be exiKJcted that children will. A child is VCry aptt hti but the eXI0 M'iii oi noine manners anu training It in NeceHMiry. As has been noted the fair associa- tion of Plymouth has about decided to abandon the holding of fairs. It is truly a matter to be deplored that such an or;imzation, and one which adds to u, prestige oi our city, should be abandoned for the lack of interest and patronage. Tin: Imkpi:m)i:nt be- heves there are favorable plans that could bo adopted that would not only make the holding of fairs in our city a feasible undertaking, but a success.

THE Y, M. U. A. A IVu orls of Duron r:'ni-iit from iiu II'ii;iii. llrt!ier Watson, of the Aigns ivlVc tor, eU'ectually handles the key Hat opens to the view of his readers.some of the characteristics that are to be found in a large number of young men. Tht'se remarks were brought fourth by the for ming of u Young Men's Christ ian Association in Plymouth. His wovds comes so near the actual con dition of affairs of the present decade that we give it in full, lie says: An effort is being made at Plymouth to organize a Young Men's Christian Association, with results t hat are not as yet definite. The average oung man. in the growing consciousness of his manhood, does not, for some unex plamabie reason take kindly to any effort, however plausible it may be, that I.us for ils object the development of Iiis higher powers and ids enlist ment in the struggle for supremacy over the enticements to evil that con tinually present themselves. With that curiosity natural to the adolescent per iod, and that impatience so character istic of youth, which brooks every re strain that age and experience seek to impose upon them, they rush blindly into life's great arena, lluttenng around the dangerous pitfalls as moths circle round the glaring lights, alas, in too many instances to meet a similar fate and perish in the lurid glare that erst while seemed so attractive. There are thousands, yea. hundreds of thousands, of voung men dangerously near the dead line who only need the l .spiia- tion of friendly, sympathetic, wisely directed counsel to piace them in the way to a grand and noble manhood. We meet them on the street, in the shop, in the store, in the factory, on the held of sport and pleasure, by squads by hundreds, seemingly with no other object in view than to "have a good time" and gratify the appetites and passions that run riot in every breast unless held in check by a well directed self-restraint. To reach such as these is the aim and purpose of the above commendable organization. There are m every town of any consid erable size enough young men of brill iant attainments ami glorious possi bilities, outside of church aniiiat'ons to form a strong organizations, and if they could be induced to follow Solo mon's advice and "seek wisdom" in the halls of the Y. M. C. A., w hat glori ous results might be achieved Capital 1 ii 1 - . There has for years been a persistent effort put forth by a certain class of people who claim to appear before the public at large as humanitarians. Ks pecially does the advocating of doing away with capital punishment seem a larce when such crimes as that com mitted last Saturday at Decatur, 111. by Charles Smith or as he is known in base ball ciriles as "Pacer," presents itself. He was married several years ago to a Miss liuchert, of that place, and by that union a little girl was born who a short time a ago arrived at the age of six years. His shiftless habits led his wife to leave him, and she returned to her father's home. Last Saturday he went to her father's home and desired to see the little girl. When it was brought to him he pulled a revolver and shot at his wife who, es caped, but her unfortunate sister, seventeen years of age received a bullet in the head and fell dead. The little child received his attention and was shot, the ball, entering the brain. Mon day the sufferings of the little girl's life was ended, by death. It is said that this brute was very cool until he was taken to jail. Put mutterings of an indignant populace began to be heard, he begged the sher iff to protect his worthless carcass. And yet it is a fact that there are a great many people that deem it a crime to hang a tiend like this. We believe that hanging is too good, and when such events transpires it should cause those who decry capital punishment to stop and consider if hanging is a punishment severe enough for such a crime. The iood OUl Way. An old-fashioned womr.n in llrook lyn fchad a 11-year-old daughter of tlie modem stripe, who ran away to be married to a 22-year-old suitor, and swore to 10 years. When they returned with a confession ot what they bad done and asked for the regulation par ental blessing in such cases, the mother took her truant daughter across her knee, gave tier an old-fashioned, spank ing, and sent her away to school to stay two years, until she reaches the age she swore to. The new son-in-law she took into her family, cut off his cigarettes, will make him stay at home evenings, and put him under parental discipline generally. When the two years expire she will recognize the marriage and start oil" the couple on a course of con nubial bliss. Hurrah for the Prooklyn woman! Itoumtfor (icoigia.

Judge 1 Mven made a ruling in the superior court of Madison county, Wednesday, that is of interest in every county in the state. The railway coin panics passing through this state re fused to pay the taxes of lV.'l, holding that the new law of that year, which put the assessment of railway property into the hands of a state board of re view, from which there ;n absolutely no appeal, was unconstitutional. The) took the matter to the courts, and re fused payment dining litigation. The law was declared constitutional several months ago and then the counties went to collect. The companies refused again to set tle, claiming that the delinquent fees which were attached, ami amounted to 0 per cent per annum, were not lawful, except for the year 1V.M, and one year only. The matter wa taken to the superior court of Madison county, and the decision was in favor of the railroad companies .Judge Diven holding that the taxes being witheld to ascertain the law did not throw the companies liable to the delinquent fees. The ruling is a line point, and in this county alone cuts the county out of thousands of dollars worth of fees, which, under the new law of the last Assembly, does not go to the oillcers, but into the county fund. It will amount to many thousands of dollars over the state. There wiil be an ap peal taken in the matter. -J.xchange. The Wheel (iiiTs iNi-oaK.
