It, matters not what your troub les may be, whether conscience or cucumbers, always look pleasant, for you are the only one that cares. A Missouri editor, in response to the question, "Do hogs pay?" says: "A great many do not. They will take the paper for several years, and then some day the paper wil be sent back marked 'refus ed,1" . . A oitEAT many Americans are thoroughly disgusted at the out come of a war which began with promrse of liberating an oppressed race, which seems likely to end with the annexation of a hord of sayages. A BUCK fakir has been working Arkansas towns selling "electric" lelts. He filled the inside of the belts with mustard and of course when the wearer perspired and the mustard became moistened it cre ated a burning sensation and the deeded victim believed a current of electricity was passing through him. A sucker is born every min ute and, belts at a dollar each is cheap experience. Somebody has said that there are more young men in the peniten tiary in this country learning trades than are outside of them. The principal cause of this is, we are educating our young men for gen tlemen, trying to make lawyers, doctors and clerks out pf the mate rial nature intended for black smiths, carpenters and other "hew ers of wood and drawers of water." It is a mistake and a big one, to teach boys and girls by insinuation or otherwise, that to labor is dis graceful. One of the most important themes, upon which Henry George wrote and labored to correct, was the unequal burden of taxation, falling lightest upon those who most easily could bear it, and heav iest upon those whoso shoulders are already galled. : In this connec tion it can be truthfully stated that there are men in Jackson who own valuable property, improved and unimproved, which is taxed for less than one-half its cash value, while the man or widow who owns a mod est, home pays full value. Is this right? Jackson Whig. A converted cowboy gave this very sensible idea of what religion is: "Lots of folks that would really like to do right think that servin' the Lord means shoutin themselves hoarse praisin' his name. Now I'll tell you how I look at that, I'm workin' here for Jim. Now if I'd sit around the house here, tellin' what a good fellow Jim is, and singin' songs to him, and gettin' np in the night to serenade him, I'd. be doin' just like what lots of nhristians do, but I wouldn't suit Jim, and I'd get fired mighty quick But when I buckle on my traps, and hustle among the hills, and seo that Jim's herd is all right and not sufTerin' for water and feed, or bein' driven off the fieH and Iran tied by cattle thieves, then I'm corvin' Jim as he wants to be (JV. . served."- , When prices rub high theie nmy ho some margin in growing almost nny sort of an animal, but when the opposite is the. cute, and poor stock goes for n song, one sees the advantage in having something good to sell. This will apply not only to horses, but to all kinds of stock. : "We can look the Dingley bill over and can point to nearly a hun dred milliou dollars taxes levied directly upon the poor people of the country and placed in the pock ets of the trusts." Letter cf A. L. Conger, a ltepublican and a mem ber of the staff of Governor Bush nell, of Ohio. FKOM IJBEKTY. Kcifiilar correspondence. Only three more weeks of school at Liberty.

Woods was in this locality yesterday buying yearlings. Mrs. Martha Ayres was called to Camden last week by the illness of her daughter, Mrs. Hubbs. The son of George Herrings ill with pneumonia. As a new year has dawned and we have not been;' disturbed with unpleasant dreams, '-we think the Liberty-Smith's CollegeYliscussion should be a thing of the past, con sequently we, shall not attempt to answer anything in this article, as we consider that we have already stated the facts, and we do not wish to say anything that would influence any one to deviate from the path way of truth and morality. If we have done so.in the past we regret it; and while we have no apology to offer any individual, thre may be some apology due the readers of The Chronicle; however, we will promise to avoid like discussions in the future. While, the Smith's College correspondent has deviated from the truth in some instances, we would not , charge that he did so wilfully, preferring to believe that it was due to lack of information. For instance, we received more votes than there are voters in his district. In conclusion I wish to say that there has been no ill-feel iug between the correspondents; on the contrary we are the best of friends. Liberty, January 11.
