Mr. Hamby knows what is right and what ought to he done, and we believe if he is elected Circuit Judge, he will fill that office to perfection, so let all who will, vote for him on the 28th. we nave nearn some say it would do them no good to vote but 1 say friends if there is any one you want elected you must go and vote for him. It is your privilege, and you must do your duty for the sake of your children hereafter. When we old ones have passed away, think of this and vote for the amendments that will 'help in the future. There is room for many changes in our laws. Judge Hirst, we guess is get ting along all right in his can vass and we hope he may re main in his seat for another term and we think Walter Rogers will he elected to for he only wants one vote and the Judge is kind enough to let Walter ride his horse on Sunda\.

From some ol' the reports that come to the Woman’s C hristian Temperance Union, that body has decided that there is a need for more “local as well as gener al legislation.” . . We believe now is a good time to hold a Christian citizenship rally. Do you find it hard to get a clear vision of Christ in politics? You are not looking at him. but at the scenery. You are waving the lens of your conscience at the landscape and getting a; senseless blur. Yor are taking! your own likeness. Stop that. Stand behind. Open your eyes. Look staight at the pallid thorn crowned, blood-stained face in front, and receive the power which will lead you straight to the polls and nominate such men as will lead the country higher in national, state, county and municipal righteousness. You may take what line1 of Christian work you will today, and it will lead you straight to IGe tahe great pleasure in announcing that our Spring ©petting will be be 10 jfrtfca^ anfc Satitrfcas, flDarcb 23r0 anb 24tb, Hi this time vre will sbo* tbc mot: etfllsb lint of labtes' an? misses' bat* ibat tbc markets can aflorb.

Kill that and I can hear you better. The proprietors of the Murray Ledger, of Kentucky, made the following announcement in that paper: “All contracts for whiskey ad vertisements in the Ledger have expired, and from this date no whiskey advertisements will ap pear in these columns at any price. If saloon people desire to expatate on the merits (?) of any peculiar brand of their damna tion, they can look elsewhere for a medium through which to extol their virtues. The*Ledger makes no claim to sanctification, but when a saloonkeeper tells us that advertisement in the Ledger has sold for him $1,200 worth of whisky, it makes us feel that we have been in a small measure re sponsible for tin* damage done, and we promise to ‘sin no more. ’ “ fifth SIM jay meeting The following is the program ot the Fifth Sunday Meeting to be held with Houghton church beginning on Satur day morning at 10 o'clock April, 2hth, lilOfi.

Mary says she has to look at i Lola when she wants to laugh we wonder what she would do if j Lola was not here. If Lynne and Bill come to! school one day in the week they think they are doing well. The Zenith Literary Societv 'elected new officers Friday. Our class mate, Goldie Chap pell, is with us again this week. We had a quarterly examina tion in spelling Thursday. School mates, tell me which is ; easier to do, right or wrong? To do wrong involves the indus try of faculties against the dic tates of conscience, our better i self. The penalty is suffering. To do right, we are only to fol low the dictates of a carefully educated conscience. The re ward is the sweet satisfaction which comes to every soul con-1 scions of duty well done. We had our quarterly examina tion in grammar Thursday. Grace Meyers, one of the btii grade pupils, was absent Wed nesday. The unfortunate child clad in t he poorest suit of armor, reared in the most desolate, poverty stricken home may, and often does, by earnest, unremitting! toil, develop into a hero, before: whose power all humanity bows with respectful deference.

"Leaves have their time to fall and floworn to wither at the north wind’s breath. And stars to set:-but all thou hast all seasons for thine own. O DEATH." There is no event that so bows our heads and hearts as to stand face to face with death, How cold his hand, how remorseless his grasp, he heeds not our pray ers to stay his march. He robs us of our dearest possessions. Yet we are taught not only in Holy Writ but by every day ob servation that to bow to his stern decree is the common lot of our common humanity. When the announcement is made that one has fallen, who’s head is frosted by many winters, upon whose face time and suffering have made deep furrows, we are not likely to regard this as ex tra ordinary. We think of them as having completed tneir weary pilgrimage and fallen asleep. It seems but yesterday that Fannie Young, (Mrs. Thos. Hood), was mingling in the pleasures of our little village and a school girl. It seems a dream that she has been taken away, for we see her now in our mind’s eye, yet we have followed her to the grave and heard the cruel clods fall upon the casket and seen the new made mound cov ered with flowers. How myste rious are the ways of Providence, So true is this, we are often dumb with silence as we hear His foot-falls and see the moving of His hand. The death of Mrs. Hood was Monday morning, March. 5th, after a long illness, has casta gloom over all hearts. All that medical science could do to ward off the great enemy was done. The burial took place at the Snell graveyard Tuesday after noon at 1 o’clock, Elder M. 0. Armstrong, officiating. All hearts go out in tenderest sympathy for the bereaved hus- i band, little baby and all rel atives. Largest Convention Of Teachers Ever Held. The National Educational As sociation Convention to he held | in San Francisco .'rom July 7th to J-ltli. is likely to he the largest ; and the most important that has I ever been held by that organiza tion. The School Superintendents who were in session in Louisville, ! ky., during the past week, gave assurance to the California dele- j nation that not less than 20,000 j teachers will attend that conven- j tion, and that the Superintend- j ents had the names of the teach ers of their respective districts who had promised to attend the I California meeting. This in- j formation was wired to the press and tin- California teachers at a nee. The people of California are making preparations to receive and entertain the educators of the country in a manor fitting,' their position and worthy of Cali fornians, anticipating that 20,000' teachers will he their guests in July, are making preparations to intertain a much larger number >f visitors who will most likely take advantage of so exceptional an opportunity to visit California. The transportation companies! ire increasing their facilities in anticipation to accommodate the largest influx in the history of; trans-continental traffic. The exceptionally low rates of fare, superior accommodations, the most complete arrangements for the comfort of passengers, handl ing of luggate, hotel accommoda tions, and other incidents which make the trip agreeable, will have a tendence to induce many thousands of Eastern people and residents from all sections of the country to visit California on that occasion. The local committees are prep aring a series of events for con vention week, which will make a program of exceptional attract ions. The visitors will have every oyyortunity to go through the military reservation, see every place of interest in one of the most important camps of the United States Army; visit the great shipbuilding plant, the cradle of some of the great battleships of our navy; inspect the Government Naval Training Station, the Navy Yard at Valle jo, the Benicia Barracks and Arsenal, the Military prison on Alcatraz Island, the Quarantine Station and the U. S. Marine Hospital on Mare Island, scan the ships from many nations riding at anchor in the bay, take a run outside the Golden Gate, a spin around the lighthouse, the seal rocks and the cliffs. Special feat ures for convention week will be announced in due time. It will he an opportunity for all visitors to see tee largest con vention of thechers ever held in the United States, and to take in the sights of California at a min imum cost. San Francisco is prepart'd to receive the largest number of visitors that ever assembled within its gates, and so are the people of the whole Stateof Cali fornia and the entire Pacific Coast. Doctors are Puzzled. The remarkable discovery of Ken neth Mclver. of Vaneeboro, Me., is the subject of much interest to the medi cal fraternity and a wide circle of friends. He says of his case: "Ow ing to severe inllamution of the Throat and congestion of the Lungs, three doctors gave me up to die, when, as a last resort, 1 was induced to try Hr. King’s New Discovery and I am happy to say it saved my life.” (’ores trie the worst coughs and colds, bronchitis, Tonsilitis, Weak lungs, hoarseness and lagrippe.
