Editor Dispatch: I am feel;
ing sad to-night. To-day I saw a
young white man lodged in jail
on a charge of stealing. What
will his mother feel when she
learns of the disgrace her son
has brought upon himself and his .j
family? Why should any one
steal in this county where a
thousand hands are wanted on
farms and the owners are ready
and willing to furnish them with
whomelsome food and comfort
able clothing? And to think of
a white man stealing! It is fear
ful to contemplate.
Honesty is at a premium just
now. I heard a man say he had
a good position on a farm for a
man if he could find an honest
w- a 1 .ft TXT 1
one. Lasten at tnat : vv no ever
heard of a man wanting an hon
est overseer ? Heretofore the
requisite has been competency as
a farmer and as an organizer of
labor. By ordinary observation
you can tell whether a man is a
farmer, and if he can manage
well his laborers; but you must
m t "i a
come in cjose ousiness contact
with a man -to tell if he is honest,
then he many fool you for years.
Boys, girls, young women, young
men, those -of. you who are in
the employ of others do not ap
propriate to your own use the
smallest article: not even a cigar,
stick of candy, or a lead pencil,
belonging to your employer with
out his knowledge and consent.
It has been said that if a boy
would take a little thing he would
take a big one. Hearing some
men discussing another man
once, and hearing some very hard
things about the absentee, Mr.
Tom Frauklin remarked: "You
may say what you please about
him, but he is an honest fellow."
This stealing business carries
me back to childhood when my
father was an overseer and the
laborers were slaves. A hog
was stolen and father had all of
the negroes on the farm lined up
in front of the house, and told
them he would pick out the one
who killed the hog. He began at
the head of the column, took each
negro by the hand and pressed
its lightly against his nose, after
he had gone through the entire
line he called out two of the
negroes by name, telling them
that it was these two who had
killed the hog. Ever afterwards
they regarded father as a witch
or prophet and let the hogs
strictly alone. You see it is this
way : After killing and dressing
a hog, unless the hands are
washed in something to kill the
odor, you can smell hog on them
for a day or two ; and that is how
he pointed out the thieves.
I suppose some of your readers
would like to know a cheap and
sure way to break calves and
colts from sucking and men from
drinking. I have a steer, three
years old, which steals the milk
from his baby sister. To break
him I made a halter, as for a
horse, to a board six inches wide,
uiuvb it iuii oi ieu-pennv nans
which had been sharpened, tied
the board to a halter with the
sharp points of the nails in front
and when that steer approached
his fond mother for his morn
ing's cup of sweet milk Mrs.
Cow flew around the cowpen like
a squaw at a war dance. The
only difference in the use of the
halter on a man is that you have
a rope to the halter and cross it
over a limb of a black jack and
pull gently until his feet are off the
the ground, then make the rope
fast to the body of the tree. It
beats the Keely cure.
I saw Hardscrabble tday and
the soft sephyrs were playiug

mated that he had something to
say next Saturday night.

vLast Friday afternoon at twbj
o'clock our school marched to
the chapel to hear a lecture de
livered by Rev. Alfred Leech, of
Columbus. Mr. Leech was visit-
ling relatives and friends in this
community last week, and upon
being invited by our principal,
very kindly agreed to make a c
ture to our school before he re
turned. Mr. Leech spoke on the
subject of "Ambition Among the
Youug People." He impressed
upon the minds of his hearers
the fact that high aspirations are
essential to the most noole sue-1
cess in life. The lecture was
much enjoyed by all, and we feel
sure it will prove greatly bene
ficial to- the school. Mr. Leech
intended to preach for us Sunday
afternoon but was taken ill and
could not till his appointment aud
Rev. G. 0. Hubberd of Caledonia,
preached in his stead. Mr.
Huberd filled bis regular appoint
ment at Bersheba Sunday and
being in the community Sunday
afternoon was' asked to till the
appointment of Mr. Leech which
he kindly consented to do. While
we were sorry Bro. Leech coujd
not be with us, we were glad to
have the pleasure of hearing Bro.
Hubberd preach! A large crowd
was present and all seemed to be
deeply interested in what was
being so impressively spoken.

Mr. Bachman's Visit.
Rev. Geo. C. Bachman, a noted
Sunday school worker from Pa
ducah, Ky., was in the city last
Sunday, and while here delivered
three lectures, having addressed
the congregation of the First

conducted a conference for Sun
day school officers and teachers
at the First Presbyterian church
at 3:30 p.m. and having spoken
at a general mass meeting at the
First Methodist church at 7:30
p.m. The morning and afternoon
meetings were attended by large
congregations but on account of
the inclement weather there was
only a small congregation pres
ent at the First Methodist church

meetings were, however, very
much enjoyed and a great deal
