We are at school here and shall al ways be at school until we are dis missed from earth's classes to be pro moted into Heaven. It's a pity we do not learn our lessons. It is a pity if we grow no gentler, no kindlier, no more thoughtful, no more unselfish, no more unworldly, as the years pass over us. As a rule the children's progress at school is regulated by the home atti tude toward school. If parents are indifferent, children also are indiffer entif parents are interested in school work, a new impulse is given to the children's interest. Parents should strive to understand the teacher and to hold her at the highest standard. No teacher can do justice to himself and pupils if he is made an object of constant and severe criticism; expres- pressions of disapproval should never be made in the presence of children; antagonism between the home and school destroys the value of school to the children. . To those whose school days are over we would say, enter upon your life's work and stick to it. Do not dodge from one thing to another; if you do you will never amount to any thing. Be useful, law-abiding citi zens. Try to make a part of the world better by having lived. Don't make getting married your chief aim in life or go around hunting someone to fall in love with, but when love comes to you be sure it is love and not a passionate fancy, and accept it as a blessing sent from God. Study to make the best of what you have. Too many people fail to use the talents they have because they have not more to put with them. Don't look for too grand things and deny yourself and family the pleasur es you might enjoy, simply because you can't give them greater ones. The man who give3 his family the benefit of a good, convenient, well ar ranged home, with fruit and flowers and good books and well chosen peri odicals for reading and cultivating the mind, who gives each such educa tion as his means will allow, and who is kind and considerate toward those who are in a large, degree dependent on him for love and protection, has done a good work which, coupled with true Christian life, will entitle him to the blessed welcome: "Well done, thou good and faithful seryant, enter into the joys of thy Lord." When a man gives his hand in mar riage to a woman,; he says by .his act among all women that he has for her a deeper and tenderer affection than for any other human being. 'At. the marriage altar he solemnly pledges the continuance of that love until death. When beauty has faded from her face, the bright flash from her eyes, when age has brought wrinkles to the brow and sorrow has traced its furrows , in the cheeks, the faithful husband's love is to remain as deep and true as ever. His heart' is still to choose his wife among all women and find in her its truest delight. God's word gives the measure, of this love. Husbands, love your wives even as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it. There is no earthly line long enough to measure the depth of Christ's love . to the church, and no man can love in the same degree. ' And yet that love is to be the type of conjugal love. . If you 'desire a Common School, Teacher's or Scientific Course, attend the Chillicothe, Mo. Normal. It of fers the very best advantages at the owest rates possible. . HERE AND THERE. Local ltemi of (he Week Gathered For the Busy Blade Readers. On account of a washout on their own track near Jefferson City the Missouri Pacific fast mail between St. Louis and Kansas City passed throu' Laclede Wednesday over the Burlingf ton line. The late cold, wet weather has had a stimulating effect upon trade at the local dry goods and shoe houses. The demand for heavy footwear and rub ber goods has been, brisk the past week. ' The CJifton Remedy Company,' a patent medicine show, will be at the opera house all next week. This company was here two or three years ago and gave a good show and inci dentally sold lots of their remedies, only as an advertisement, of course. Anthony Edwards who has been confined in the state hospital at St. Joseph for the past eighteen years, escaped last week and arrived at his home here Friday. An officer from the asylum came down Sunday and returned with him to St. Joseph that afternoon. Little Vanesse Fawcette has had a severe attack ot bronchitis tor the past three weeks and is not yet able to leave the house. This will inter fere with Dr. and Mrs. Fawcette's leaving home according to advertise ment. Under the existing circum stances Dr. Fawcette will have his of fice open for a few days longer. H. Eccles is making extensive and valuable improvements in the local telephone system. Fine new cedar poles are being put in and the wiring done in a more substantial manner. . The eouthside wires will be cabled in from the Methodist church corner" which will do away with the annoy ance of crossed wires and danger ia crossing the railroad. The Callahan dramatic company presented Uncle Tom to a small audi ence at the opera house last Tuesday night. The company had been hav ing a run of hard luck and showed it. Two or three members of the company were good and with proper support and favorable conditions might 'give a creditable performance, but the balance of the company, even the to the dogs, were very common. The Stahl-Blake company that comes to the opera house Saturday evening, October 21, is highly recom mended. The Toledo Blade says: "Miss Margaret Stahl delighted the audience with ner readings, as had been anticipated. Miss Stahl has a charming personality, to which must be added a musical voice, and she held the attention of the audience from the first word until the last." Win. A. Chinn, an industrious young farmer living northeast of La clede, and Miss Bertha Jones, daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. L. B. Jones were united in marriage at Brookfield last Sunday, Rev. Atwood officiating. These well known and highly respect ed young people have the best wishes of their many friends. They will re side on the Steck farm southeast , of Laclede which Mr. Chinn has rented for next season. '' . ' E. G. Cole, who was in the dray and coal business here several years ago, since which time living on a farm in Chariton county, has opened np a general line of merchandise at Forker and ia already doing a good business. Mr. Cole has put in quite a largo ' stock and will supply the trade of that locality at the very lowest prices as well as paying the highest market price for all farm products. Mr. Cols is an honorable and upright gentle man and the people of that locality will do well to give, him their patroa- ago. "-.'". '
