THE $ MARK.
ft. IxiuU Ki'pubUc. Did it ever strike you asbcinz at all peculiar thiil wo should use the dollar (J) before, instead of after the figures in expressing the (iiliil of Ave, ten, twenty or any other nuniberof dollars? We may say "twerity-flvc dollar'' plain enough for any one to under stand, but as s-ion as we put the ex pression into figures and characters it is "dollars twenty-five" ($) instead of 2,1$, as It should be. Nor is this all that is peculiar In this connection: In every country which has a writen language and a system of coinage the abbreviation for the unit of value precedes the figures. In England the pound m irk () is used in the same manner that the dollar mark is used in this country, while the same speeu liarity is noticeable in Germany, where the abbreviation ni. (for mark) appears preceding the number, Just as the . French abbreviation fr. (tor franc), is used in France. If the abbreviations are not used the legend Is more apt to be correct. We Itnd that in Mexico thev have a "21 pesos" instead of "p. 2i," as one might expect, and in Newfoundland they have a plain two dollar piece. So too, In France, where the abbreviation Is not used we find such pieces as "10 francs," "20 francs" and "40 francs." In Germany they have a piece marked "X thaler," which is all very plain, ?V t'l(J nlnmcr,t a clerk, b lokkeeper r -jyrperoti makes an entiy or Jots one"Vs .

And as the people passed along and did not stop to buy, John still sat down and smok ed his pipe and blinked his sleepy eye. And so the sheriff closed him out, but still he lingered near, and Mary came to drop with him a systematic tear. "Ilow is it sister, can you tell why the other merchants here, sell all their goods and thrive trom year to year?'' Remembering now her own bad luck the little maid replies : "These little fellows get there, John, because they advertise." A good laugh is better than medi cine. Learn how to tell a story. A well-told story is as welcome as a sun beam in a sick-room. Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself. The world is too busy to care for your Ills nnd sorrows. Learn to 6top croaking. If you can not see any good In the world, keep tic bad to yourself. Learn to hide your pains and aches under a pleasant smile. No one cares to hear whether yon have the earache, head ache or rheumatism. Don't cry. Tears nrc out of place In real life. Learn to meet your friends with a smile.

' ' A SEASONABLE WOKD. Dr. Palmer Is delivering a series of Sunday Evening Lectures on "First Things." The second lecture was on "The First Woman." We leproduce the following from an excellent summary ty the Aew uricaiis i lea yune: "A woman Is always in her place as n helpmeet. Otherwise she Is out of it. She comes to man's sid from whom she sprung, to reflect his own likeness. She must help him in his plans. All the funct ions of life could nut be carried out without her. Each I is helpless without the oilier. She was created to discharge the special ofllco of the helpmeet. "As to the true subordination of woman, 1 will say that she is man's equal, but lie Is the head." Dr. Palmer related the story of the temptation, and how the subtle ser pent entered the garden and approach ed the woman instead of going to the head to Adam. . "1 do not undertake to say, that the serpent knew she was the weaker of the two. I will not undertake to say that the serpent would not have been successful had he approached Adam Hist. Any way, he made the woman his instrument. He deceived her. How much better would It have been for Ere If she had not forgotten that she was the helpmeet, and had sent the serpent to Adam. She was a little too progressi .e. She saw the tree of life was beautiful, and she re cognized the possibilities of becoming greater than she was. She felt the Joy of mil ii'iimumr her elevation to a ;Qj the one In which ,' lid her.

War is the grand parade beneath the flag consecrated by the blood of a million heroes. It is also the wily picket shot, the volley, the charge, the ruar of conflict and the desperate hand-to-hand death struggle. War is the spirit of patroit song. It is also the sighing away of the young life, alone, beneath the stars. War Is something we all like to talk about. It is something no experienced man wants to see, if it can be houor auly avoided.

Raise hogs. Raise colts. Raise chickens. Raise milch cows. Then plant no more cotton than you can cultivate without hired help. Jiouso your surplus truck crops should there be no market, and feed It to your cows and hogs, and save the corn, as there is always a chance to sell corn at a good price In the spring. Hy good management you can sell enough surplus porks, lard, chickens, eggs and butter to pay the store bills. oiir cotton should enable you to pay off the mortgage, or if you owe nothing, then you should have money to deposit in tho bank.
