THE TOWN TALKER.
Fasting is a pious exercise, but it is more difficult for a mar. to control his tongue than it is to control his appetite and temperance is exhibited in the for j mer more than in the latter. We naturally regard the man who is enslaved to any indulgence as one in capable of self-control, and, therefore, bereft of true manliness. Heis subject to a tyrant who uses and ruins him. The preachers tell us that personal strife and ill will are not compatible with Christian life, but the Town Talk er would say that mutal good will and : co-operation of the people, are necess ary to the material prosperity of any I community.' Nothing is so detrimental topublicmor als as the insinuations of corruption in public men, with which the newspapers abound. What may we expect of our young men when we have persuaded them that offlcal station or conspicous success in business is the reward of villainlly? We think, when our conduct is wrong, to excuse ourselves by protesting that our motives were right. What ill doing then it must be to impeach the motives of others when we condemn their ac tions. Some wist; one has given us this defi nition of the new woman. “A woman who has ceased to tie a lady and has not learned to be a gentleman. Weeds grow' voluntarily in the field but we must plant and plough the corn. So bad tempers grow voluntarily in our characters but good positions must be carefully tended. There is no place in Arkansas where the ladies ride in buggies so much as in Prescott; we suppose it is because our side walks are not fit for them to walk on. The best way to promote good con duct, is to commend the good that peo ple do, and say little about their faults. The worst man in any community, so far as public irdluence is concerned, is he who lives by pondering to the vices or weaknesses of others. Many men think they have missed but little of being great or rich, a^Japa nese proverb is, “The biggest fish is the one you did not catch,’’ No man influences the public con science for good whose conduct does not rise above the public example. If today you have the means and the opportunity of doing good, act promptly, for like conditions may never come again. Kodak Supplies. AT T elr rjy I BROS. DRUG CO.
