E Benjamin Audrews, chancellor of the University of Nebraska, preach ed to-night at the First Baptist Church on the life of Queen Vic toria. "She has done what she eonld," was the text chosen. The chancellor spoke first of the Queen's great influence in elevating womanhood. He said she became a great woman power in the politi cal world as well as in the home world. She had lifted up monar chy. Before her influence was felt, monarchy in the Old World was breaking down owing to the proflig acy, idiocy and mediocrity of toon archs. By her worthy life, her wonderful intellectual and moral qualities, the Queen had given monarchy new life. He pointed out that it was largely through her inflneuce that war between the United States and England was pre vented in the early '60s, when the Trent affair was under discussion. Her statesmanship and wonderful diplomacy prevented war. She had been a great moral power in the world. The courts of Europe, he said were noted for their unclean liness and social purity was a rare gem. Under the influence of her character the world had been strengthened morally. Her reign was the great strength of the Brit ish empire. The colonies became devoted to the mother country on accouut of the graciousness of the Qneen. The chancellor predicted that after her death the empire would gradually disintegrate. Australia would first seek iudepender.ee and then South Africa, and perhaps Canada would follow. This he thought would come to pass because there was no likelihood of such an other ruler as the Queen. Beat Out of an Increase of His Pension. A Mexican war veteran and prominent editor writes : "Seeing the advertise ment of the Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, I am reminded that as a soldier ift Mexico in '47 and '48, I contracted Mexican diarrhoea and this remedy has kept me from getting an in crease in my pension, for on every re newal a dose of it restores me." It is unequalled as a quick cure for diarrhoea and is pleasant and safe to take. For sale by James A. Lee.

There were excursions from Hous ton, Kansas City and other points, and strangers came in by the hund reds. There has been talk about the Standard Oil people having 15 or 20 representatives on the grounds for the purpose, if possible, to buy the best location for the future sinking of oil wells. These rumors are, however, of the usual intangi ble kind, and no one apparently knows anything as to their truth or falsity. There is no doubt among the oil men here but that the Standard people will get control of the oil land if they waut it. Money is all powerful and anyone will sell at their own price. Mr. Percy McFaddeu, on whose land the Lucas geyser is located, when asked about the oil situation, said: "We are like the man who bagged the wildcat ; we want some one to come and help us take it out of the bag. We have got some thing here that is too big for us. There is no doubt we have struck the biggest thing in oil the world has ever known. Those who have not seen it caunot realize the mag nitude and importance of our find. We have oil-here in quantities that are inexhaustible- and of a kind that can be used for a variety of purposes. It can be used for pav ing roads, as ballasting for road beds, and in a very short time I have no doubt we will be shipping it all over Central and Sonth Amer ica. No, we have not made any defin ite plans for the disposition of the oil and we caunot do so until we find what action the Standard Oil Company is going to take in the matter. They have several men in the field, and of course, if they take a notion to get possession of the big well they will do so, as there is not enough organized cap ital here to fight them." Another prominent oil man of Beaumont in speaking of the mat ter said . "There are at least fifteen men here as agents of the Standard Oil Co., all of whom have registered under assumed names. They are working both openly and secretly and it is the hardest matter in the world to get at the real truth of the matter, but it is certain that if they are working to get hold of the oil fields here they will succeed." One of the strong points of value Rheumatism. Nobody knows all about it, and nothing, now known, will always cure it. Doctors try Scott's Emul sion of Cod.Liver Oil, when they think it is caused by im perfect digestion of food. You can do the same. It may or may not be caused by the failure of stomach and bowels to do their work. If it is, you will cure it; if not, you will do no harm. 1 he way, to cure a disease is to stop its cause, and help the body get back to its habit of health. When Scott's Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil does that, it cures; when it don't, it don 't cure. It never does harm. The genuine has this picture on it, take no other. If you have not tried it, send for free sample, its agreeable taste will surprise you. SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists-, 409 Pearl St., N.

It is possible to build an ordinary, cheap wooden flume that will convey the contents of the geyser, or any number of them, direct to the sea aud at practically no cost at all, after the small amount of money has been expend ed necessary to build the flume. After the oil is once delivered on board the ships at Port Arthur the cheap ocean freight charges will give it an advantage over any other oil in the world. There is no doubt but that the Beaumont oil fields will be developed and to the fullest extent in the shortest possible time. There seems to be a suspicion that the Beaumont oil is good for illuminating purposes, even if the expert oil men here do try to make the contrary appear. It is hinted that they do not wish the real value of the oil to become known at this early date for selfish and commercial reasons. Whether there is any truth in this statement or not I have no means of ascertaining. A Texas Wonder. hall's great discovery.

Jos. A. C arlin , Bayue, La. We learn from the Chicago Pub lic that Armour & Co., having sued the city for the loss of refrigerator cars which the firm claimed to have been destroyed by a mob during the railway strike of 1894, it was proved that the cars bad not been destroyed by the mob, but by indi viduals, some of whom were em ployees of that firm. This testi mony could not be overcome, and the jury gave a verdict for the city. It is evident that this firm and the railroad magnates, aided by U. S. deputy marshals, burned these and other cars for the donble purpose of getting pay for their old rolling stock at new prices and to uianu faetare pnblic opinion against the strikers, with a view to securing interference of U. S. soldiers Now, who was the Anarchists! A Prominent Chicago H owau Speaks. Prof. Boxa Trier, of Chicago, Vice President Illinois Woman.s Alliance, in speaking of Chamberlain's Cough Bemedy, says : "I suffered with a severe cold this winter whieb threatened to run into pneu mania. I tried different remedies but I seemed to grow worse and the medicine upset my stomaeh. A friend advised me to try Chamberlain's Cough Bemedy aud I found it was pleasant to take and it re lieved me at once.

Clinton, of the San Francisco board of education, has made a special study of the effects of cigarette smoking among the public school children of that city, and in the Midland Methodist ex presses himself as follows : "A good deal has been said about the evil of cigarette smoking, but one half of the truth has never been told. I have watched this thing for a loug time, and 1 say calmly aud deliberately that I believe cigarette smoking is as bad a habit as opium smoking. Iaui talking now of boys, remember. The effect upon grown men is, of course, not so marked. "A cigarette fiend will lie and steal, just as a morphine or opium fiend will lie and steal. Cigarette smoking blunts the whole moral nature. It has an appalling effect upon the system. It first stimulates and then stupefies the nerves. It sends boys into consumption. It gives them enlargement of the heart and it sends them to the insane asylum. I am physician to several boys' schools, and lam often called in to prescribe for palpitation of the heart. In nine cases out often it is caused from the cigarette habit. Every physician knows the cigarette heart. I have seen bright boys turned into dunces, and straight forward, honest boys made into miserable cowards by cigarette smoking. I am not exaggerating. I am speaking the truth, that every physician and nearly every teacher knows."— Florida School Exponent. A Sermon in a Paragraph. President Porter, of Yale, once gave the following excellent advice to the students of that institution : "Young men, you are the archi tects of your own fortunes. Rely on your own strength of body and soul. Take for your star, self reliance. Inscribe on your banner, luck is a fool; pluck is a hero.' Don't take too much advice—keep at your helm and steer your own ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take fair share of the work. Think well of yourself. Strike out. Assume your own position. Put potatoes in a cart over a rough road, and the small ones go to the bottom.

But yet there is a black cloud hovering about the pretty picture In her mind which fills her with terror. The dread of childbirth takes away much of the Joy of motherhood. And yet it need not be so. For sometime there has been upon the market, well-known and recommended by physicians, a liniment called UMtert Friert which makes childbirth as simple and easy as nature intended It.

The mind, like the body, grows stronger by exercise, and the best and most profitable exercise i> that which the child gets from his own work. The teacher does the child a great wrong in doing his work for him. The more a pupil does for himself, the greater will be his self dependence and the more thorough his mental discipline. As well might we expect a child to grow physically strong if continually carried in the nurse's arms, as ex pect him to grow mentally strong while receiving the constant help of the teacher. It is what the child does for himself that strengthens his mental faculties and fits him for his subsequent work. The pupil should not be permit ted, however, to waste time in wrestling with difficulties beyond his strength, lie should have iiq direct help in doing that which lie can do for himself, but it is useless and unprofitable to permit him to waste time in attempting to solve problems beyond his comprehen sion. When the teacher once dis covers that the child is unable to overcome a difficulty, it is then time for him to give such sugges tion as will start a proper traiu of thought in the mind of the child, and thus enable him to win a vic tory.— From School Management, hy A. N. liant). To Prevent Pupils Scratching Desks. "There is 110 great trouble about keeping furniture numarred," said Conductor Sherman Williams. "When I was at Flushing, there had been a disposition to »cratch up the desks, and when we put new desks into one of the rooms, the board said, 'Do you suppose you can keep those clear?' I said I thought it could be done, and the first morning after the desks were put in I told the boys that of course they could mark up the desks if they wanted to, bnt I should ad vise them not to do it. After a day or two I found that one boy had cut his name in the top of his desk. I told him pleasantly enough that I saw he wanted to own the desk. 'Well, it is yours,' I said. 'You must take it away and pay for it. It cost $3.40, and yon must stay at home until you bring the money.' His father was quite angry, but I told him cheerfully that,, when a boy put his name on a desk that meant that he wished to purchase it. The board stood by me, and after the boy had stayed out awhile he brought the $3.40 to school. 'Now you must take away the old desk,' I said to him. He did not want to do that, but I insisted upon it, and someway or other the next morniug that desk was missiug. I had no more trouble with mark ing desks in that room."— Journal of Education. Keeping flood Order in the Schoolroom. Good teachers do not try to "keep order" by a system of rules and penalties, but expect order to result from the proper employment of pupils under direction of the teacher. Again, good teachers do not "keep order" by suppressing disorderly tendencies of pupils, but by substituting exercises that will furnish occasion for healthful ac tivity. Good teachers do not usually desire to "keep order" that in point of stillness will meet the "pin drop" test, but they expect and enjoy the "hum of industry" that comes from the interested occupa tion of pupils. Good teachers do not "keep order" as an end, but as a means of carrying on the business of the School.— Texas School Journal. Be Honest With Your Pupils. The only sure way to gain the love and respect of your pupils is to be perfectly honest with them. Beginners are apt to affect a certain prim and preciseness, aud the affectation is perfectly evident to the average child, for children are exceedingly keen in penetrating disguises of manner. The best course is to be frank. It takes some teaehers years to learn this, aud some never learn it .—Rocky Mountain Educator. me C2 £ ia « "7 9, f'f) 'a a m >9 <3 □ GW OS CS 3 9û C PI ERC R PR SIREN NURSING MOTHERS. IT MANES WEAK WOMEN STRONG AND SICK WOMEN WELL. WHO IS THE DULL BOY." "To the Greek professor he is the boy who cannot learn Greek. To the professor of mathematics lie is the boy who cannot learn calculus. To the whole literary or classical faculty he is the poor fool whose brain will only absorb facts of physics and chemistry. To the witty man ho is that awful creature who sits solemn over the latest joke or epigram. To the serious man he is the laughing jackass who persists in treating life as a comedy. "In brief, the 'dull boy' is a square peg whom some body is trying to fit iuto a round hole." There is considerable humor and some truth iu the preceding. It is too often true that teachers—es pecially high school teachers and college professors—judge a pupil's ability entirely by the interest he shows or does not show iu their special branch. In too many in stances pupils who are not dull are driven out of school because of a lack of effort 011 the part of teach ers—due either to laziness or in difference—to find out what the in terests, abilities, and adaptabilities of such pupils are. In all such cases the only pity is that the teacher does not have to go instead of the pupil. On the other hand, it will not do to become too sentimental in dealing with the supposedly dull boy aud try to hunt easy things for him to do on the supposition—false in many instances—that he is "born short." Quite frequently instead of being "born short," he is born lazy, and needs a little of the old fashioned stirring up that has help ed many a boy to arouse himself to do something before it was too late. —Ohio Educational Monthly.
