' Since the days of the Messianc F parable, there have been constant r repetitions of the sowing of wheat, i, but at harvest time, finding there- c with many tares. This is true not only in a literal, but likewise in a figurative sense. No age, condition, or circumstance seems to be a security agairst the appear.noe of these trouble some and i; ,beless weeds; and individuals, churches, societies, communities, States, republics, and kingdoms are t all troubled and vexed by the ap pearance of these pestiffYrous weeds, which are found mixed and intermin gled with the wheat, when the reap ing is begun. Cool judgment and a practical knowledge of the cereal e need will enable the husbandman to ' detect and cast out many of the spu rious ones, but t b.et, the harvest a tide, figuratively or litterally, will re- t1 veal many tares which will impover- a iah the crop, and make it full short u of its owners expectations. 6 The sowing is ever undertaken o with bonyant expectations, and the d future, painted by the magical touch of Imagination, seems brilliant and enticing; but the reaping is too often ti clouded by the somber coloring of i Disappointment, all because Good p Judgment's warnings were unheeded, n and the harvester realized that he U had sowed, not wheat, but tares. The heart of every human being is o a field which will yield a barvest of fI good or evil, as the soil is cultivated a properly and scientifically. That of the child must bring forth his char- b acter, and great care must be taken a as to whether it be a crop of useful- h ness or of detriment to society. t Many a parent, in attempting to raise therefrom an honest, sober, industri oas and npright woman or man has, by measures too harsh in the train- t ing, dwarfed and warped the disRosi- ar tion, aasing the child to grow up dishonet and vicious instead, and so- d ciety has reaped therefore not wheat, but tare The heart never becomes sterile, but will always bring forth a harvest of some kind, and many an oneo. after its owner has reahed man's estate t and brought forth many arops useful to the busime world of human en deavors, has by q werror of husbsd men (the community in which he It lives), in the mse of fertiliers too fa strong, eassed to yield profitable re i trns for their labor, and heoeefrth brought forth not wheat, bu tarx, g1 It is the moral and religipcs duty a of allto atady and learn that for mevery sowing there mlust be a rep STkhe harvest will be--must neo audy b-J or orrow, mccs m th failure, and it depends mostly on the sower what that harvest will be. If the seed are not good, no matter how careful the fertilizing, watering or cultivating, the harvest will be poor, a disappointment to him who has al lowedl his hopes to reach a high state of anticipation. Therefore let every man, whether as individual or citizen, perform well h s part, carry out the spirit of the Good Samaritan, practice the (tolden Rule, so that when the harvest time of the Great Jehovah is at hand he will be gathered in the barn with the wheat, and not burned with the tares. PRESS ECHOES. Ruston Progressive Age: A party of gentlemen of Jennings, La., cowhided the Rev. E. A. Bridger, pastorof theCongregational church of that place, in his pulpit last Sunday, for slandering the ladies of the town indiscriminately. Progressive Age: There are one hundred and fifty pupils in tho Rue ton college. Progressive Age: The cotton crop of Lincoln will be a short cne this year, the seasons and other causes having proven very disasterous to the plant; and yet the price is declining right at the opening of the season. We do not kno , what farmers are go ing to do unless they quit planting cotton almost entirely. Live Stock Journal: The nine hundred and fifty carloads of melons which the South Carolina mellon growers shipped this year paid them $71,51-0-twtce as much as they real ized from 1,169 carloads which they shipped last year. Na'cbitoches Enterprise: The fix tures of the late Natchitoches bank have been purcbased by Mr. J. b6. Tucker for $800. We may now ex pect to have a bank in full operation in the near future. Enterprise: There is too much sentiment about our people, for us to eIer become sucoasaful communiay. We sacrifice too much for sentiment sake, and because of name, position, fataily and connections, we permit wrongs, which are detrimental to the town, and disturbing to its peace and dignity, to go unpunished and unrighted, because it would be a dis grace to some name, some family or some position, to have a fine imposed or imprisonment inflicted for mnscon duct. Te'e,;rpL-Bu'letin: Home rule has won another victory over centralisa tion and would-be bossism and the Democrats of the 5th district are proud of it, but in their sovereign manhood they never would have sub mitted. Robeline Battle Flag: Cotton is comiing into our city slowly. The farners say there is about half a crop made. The stalks- are large enough to hold from a bale to a bale and a quarter to the acre, but the rains have ruined it, and many stalks have not a single boll. We bave seen cotton that did not have as much as one third of tha fruit the stalk would be able to bear. Exchange: Ata negro wedding, when the minister read the words, "love, honor and obey," the groom in terrupted him and said: "Bead that again sah; read it once mo' so's de lady kin ketch the full solemnity of de meanin." Ise been married befo'." Texas Farm and Ranch: The low prtic of cotton has been a blessing to the South. It has done for farmers what nothing else oould have acoom plishbed. It es eaused them to turn their attention to raising home sup lies, thereby saving a good many Natehitoehes Democrati Review: It is an enoooraging sign when famers dioeus the question of diver sided crops and the neemsity of rais ing food oduets for home nese " tiw T plan he wked seem. fully in many of the hill rihe, mo the white farmers, i ad indepeanden~oa The eelusive onltivation of cotton, to the detirment of needed supplies, is likely to become the exception, not the gpral rule, a has bheretofor, P prevailed. When the corn cribs and f meat houses are located at home and not in the West, a greater degree of prosperity will prevail among South r ern farmers. Try it. Lake Charles Echo: The rice bar vest is in full blast now and from e every direction comes a cry of the scarcity of hands. The rice harvest r is a thing that can not be postponed Echo: In all directions is heard , the sound of the axe and the ham mer, and the era of building is fully inaugurated. Let the wood work ' continue. When houses which cost $1,0()0 or less, readily rent for $20 per month, building houses in Lake Charles is surely a good investment. Echo: A new shingle factory with a capacity for cutting 250.,0(K) shin gles per lay, has just been put in op eration in New lberia, La. Echo: Three hundred convicts were put to work last week on the Belmcnt levee in St. Jamen parish. This levee will have a base of one hundred and seventy-five feet and when completed. will be one of the largest and beat in the State. Sabine Banner: On Tuesday we saw a peach rased by Sir. Geo. Hutch or, which measured 11 inches in circumference. Who says Sabine can not produce fine fruit? Colfax Chronicle: The progress ive "free State of Winn" reports a decrease in the assessments of that parish of $100,000 lens than in 1891. In Grant we have increased more than that amount, for the year 1892 GibLbland Gazette: Dr. W. T. Pollard showed us Thursday morn the largest apple we ever saw. It iwas presented to Dr. Pollard by Mr. It. L. Rogers, of the 6th ward, this parish on whose place it grew. The apple measured 141 inches in circuam fereuce and weighed 18 ounces. SNAP SHOTS. Professor H. W. Vogel, a Berlin chem ast, claims to have discovered a system of reproducing natural colorsin photography. The amateur photographers' asocia tioms of the United States held a conven tion in New York and organized a national league. 1 Don't try to make Instantaneous plc toucw to begam with. Wait until you un derstand something of your instrument ra and your chemicals. The flashlight photographs of the Mam- a moth cave made by Miss Frances.lohno- , ston, the well known amateur. are said to II be the meet perfect which have ever been p taken. A picture made on platinotype or bro mide paper should never be burnished or given any glase whatsoever. The dull sur face which comes naturally with drying after toning is always most effective for the black or sepia tones of these papers. EPICUREAN MORSELS. Brandy wafers are new in the cracker 'ae. Ten pounds would not intoxicate. For birds of average size fifty minutes are required for rnmatiang a capon, thirty. five minutes for a fowl and two hours fora turkey. Red raspberrienmake adelicious flavored jelly, but it will not be firm enough to re tain its shape unlessone third their weight of currents is added. In Chili, after making cider and wine from their apples, they extract front tie refuse a white and finely flavorea spirit, and by another process they procure a sweet treacle, or, as they term it, honey. Scientific men now leclare that eating before sleeping is of great benefit, and that a bowl of bread and nalik, a anag of beer and a few bisculits, or a saucer of oatmeal before retiring will in a short time result ia an increase in weight, strength, and general tone. CROWN AND SCEPTER. King Oscar of Sweden is a man of tall and spare figure, with white hair andt beard. IlHenry VIII during his reign put te death 71,000 perso, most of them vurtuots or aunoffending. Otto, the insane king of Bavaria, is at times so violent that it is necessary for his *ttendants to strap him to his bed.
