We have ev
called upon to
one of our old
n Louis Hrown,
laic proprietor of the beautiful
Interlaken plantation, and of Co
rona, where he died. Mr. Hrown
had been a resident of this parish
for many years, coming here from
Tennessee. lie was a man of
sound convictions and honest in
tentions, and was in every sense a
worthy citizen, whose inlluence
was always cast for the light in all
things. A man universally be
loved by all whose fortune it was
to be acquainted with him. He
had reached the limit of man's life
and his lipe years were his crown
of glory, passing the alotted three
score and ten. He died surrounded
by members of his family, in the
full hope of a blissful immortality.
His funeral was attended by his
many friends from the Episcopal
Church, Kev. C. C. Kramer offi

ing family our hearty condolence.

—Mr. I. N. Satterfield has shown
us a sample of rice which Indicates
the great tenacity of life of the
plant. This particular piece of
rice of about one hundred acres,
did not receive a particle of water
months, and after coining up
fo a stand had a precarious exist
ence, reaching about six inches in
height, when it seemed to be dead
to all appearances. Some ten days
it was cut off close with a mowing
machine and the water turned on.
A most surprisising growth is the
result now measuring about twenty
inches, fine stalky plants, which
promises to yield an average crop.
We give this as an instance of the
great vitality of the plant.

Rockefeller's hair, eyebrows and

dead ringer for the Idle Apprentice
in the last picture of the Hogarth

distressing to this good man, for
he could not explain how it all
came about; and this is terrible
world, you know. He could only
call it alopecia areata, under the
advice of his physicians, aud let
it go at that. Hut art and science

Whatever the nature of your thought

your future and the future of your child
If you are talking gossip, and scandal
and criticising all your associates, and
suspecting your neighbors of wrongdoing,
you are creating conditions of discord and
trouble for yourself and your descendants.
Years to come you will be wondering
why Fate should treat you so badly—why
you and yours should always be in trouble !
of some kind—why people should turn j
against you and disparage you.
It will be hard for you to understand
that you are reaping what you sowed—
that the daily conversation and gossip at
yonr table and fireside furnished the seed
for all this crop of tares and thistles.
Every thought we send out is a magnet,
and attracts other thoughts like itself.
We often wait years before feeling the re
sult, and by the time it comes we have
forgotten the kind of thought we sent
forth. But it is indestructible, and no
thing can hinder it from performing its
The neighbors yon criticise to-day may
not criticise yon in return; the people you
are kind to may be ongrateful, but a* yon
live other people will repay both the cri- !
ticism and the kindness in the same coin !
as years go toy.
Besides this, you are to-day. every hour
in the day, creating conditions fora whole
' community of people, if you are allowing
Î your childron to hear your conversation.
! A child's mind is wax, and it is shaped
! by its associations.
If you talk about hatred and revenge, of
"getting even" and paying debts, if anger
fill your thoughts, the child is going to
J cultivate those brain cells, aud may some
I day figure as a criminal. Auger and re
} venge lead to crime, to the most awful of
, crimes—manslaughter. An uncontrolled
I temper and an uncontrolled tongue are
j dangerous to the peace wf a community.
If you are inclined to ridicule and make
fun of your neighbors, your children will
follow in your footsteps and create oiu
luies wherever they go.
On the contrary, if you look for Hiebest
quality in every one and speak of it, if
you train yourself to rejoice at the good
luck of others, and to be sorry for their
misfortunes, you are creating friends fur
yourself and your descendants. ^ ou are
setting in motion those most poweiful vi
brations of Lovo which will bless you ami
those with whom you associate as yon
pass along life's highway.
Besides this, you are creating success
for yourself. K very body will like you and
be glad to do you a good turn; frieuds will
spring up for you in unexpected places. I
ami when you do encounter an enemy he j
will tie powerless to harm you, for love
and good-will are a spiritual bodyguaid
who walk beside those who invite them,
and protect them from all evil.
You can give your children no greater
endowment than to teach them lo think,
talk and act love for humanity. Not only
are you influencing their lives for good,
but the lives of theii future husbands,
wives and children.
Therefore be careful what you talk
about, and what you think about, as you
close your doors to the outer world and
gather together in the family circle. l'Un
