of better trained teachers, do
expect every teagher in the two
counties to be present every
day and do the work assigned.
Teachers who are not sufficien
tly interested to attend this
Normal show a lack of interest
in the great work in which they
are engaged, and for that reason
will not deserve that they other

says the limes doesn't look like
a celebrity. He is shambling
ami loose at the joints, and
walks lackadaisically and rather
aimlessly. No, he doesn’t look
like cue (celebrity) but he
sounds like one. He is often
considerd one of the most brill
iant men in our congress and his
casual curbstone conversation is
“He scintillated, looking for
Mallard street. ;

he was lost and glad of it. He
wasn't worried about it. He
had got as far as being lost and
was prepared to complacently
report pi ogress
“ 'ihe hotel clerk,’ he Said iir

on a Sixth-street car. Ihe con

“ ‘I reckon,’ he said softly,’that
being named a after duck, this
must be the closed season for
Mallard street.’
“Someone, as a very common
place conversational spur, said
that this must be Mr. Williams

“Lie took a couple of sly puffs
at his cigar and his mouth curled
into that little crooked smile.

his cigar.
*■ ‘She wated fu’ a, long time
without wine.’
“ ‘Site lifts been waitin’ IV a
longtime fo’ me. Well I’m here,
and I can’t find Mallard street.’ ”
Then, according to the Story in
the Times, the Hon. J din Sharp
lit into the scribe, who was to
“write him up,” and Hie artist,
who was to “do his picture,”
asking about this street that D
“named after a duck.” He got
on their nerves. They confessed
that they were Republicans
both of them, and, therefore,
ignorant; but tried to make a
showing against the Democrat
leader by steering him against a
‘•The Democratic gladiator,”
so the artical reads, “watched
the copper and his book with an
amused satirical expression ; the
blue coat was excitedly fumbl
ing to and fro in Hie book.
“ Hi a criminal were to be
repo’ted at large on Mallard
street,’ he reflected out loud, ‘I
don’t see what the police would
do about it. Tno safest place in
the world to commit a crime
would bo on Mallard street—
named after a duck,’ he added
Of course the policeman got
hot in the collar; but he, too
was a Republican, and John
Sharp must !::lve very
"at home,' indeed, while “Lost
in Los Angeles,” seeing that lie
had the Republican majority on
Hie ragged edge of nerves and
stumped to a standstill.
This, if we remember rightly,
was the conditon the Democrat
ic leader brought about in the
house with a view to forcing a
Republican committees to report
-nine important measures. It
worked in W ashington, and it
worked in I.os Angeles. The
Republicans, scribe, artist and
policeman, were forced to deli
ver up directions leading to the
droet “named after a duck.”
John isliarp had won again.
And had won handily. We know
Hiis from what they said, which
“M e hope the next time you
get lost you will stay lost. We
are Republicans.”
And this is an honest and
truthful expression from the
Republicans; for every blessed
me of them would stand on their
eyelashes if, (hereby, they
thought they could keep this
same John Sh iwp staked out

leaves a husband threedaughters
ami two sons to mourn her loss,
but we feel that our loss is her
eternal gain. To know her
was to love her. She was so
kind we always feel at home at
her house. She suffered a great
■ leal but bore her suffering well.
She had told her children all she
dreaded Hie sting of death and
desired to die easy, which prayer
was-answered. She died in the
rocking chair without a struggle.
The last enemy that is to be
destroyed is death. Blessed are
they flint die in the Lord fori
they cease from their labors and
t heir works do follow them. Oh
that the Lord would cause hei
dear husband and children to
follow her in her example as a
true and faithful member of the
Primitive Baptist ‘Church lor
we feel (hat we need them.
Now, in conclusion, can’t we all
join the Lords servant, where he
said the “Lord giveth and the
Lord taketh away and blessed l.e
the name of the Lord.” Way the
Lord bless us all with a recon
ciled mind is our prayer.
