The iimre testimony there is presented in the Schley case, the more clearly it appears tint Schley is entitled to the credit for the victory, and that Sampson and his associates have been trying to blacken his reputation in order to purloin his just credit. To read the virulent assaults that have been made on him for weeks past by various newspapers and naval authorities oDe might suppose that he had committed some awful blunder in his tactics as well as displaying cowardice, but when the facts are present ed it is apparent that he han dled his vessel and his fleet like a master. The much complain ed of "loop" of the Brooklyn brought her into action in the most advantageous manner and she evidently inflicted the great est possible damage on the en emy while suffering the least possible damage herself, aud that is the finest record that can be made by any naval com mander. Moresoever the evidence fully bears out the statement of the officers who were near him that his conduct and bearing were all that could be desired in any i man. and would serve as mod els for any officer in like situ ation. Not only were the di rections for the fighting given with coolness and intelligence, but all the little events of the affair go to show how complete ly the admiral was at himself and how thorough was his grasp of the situation. For example, when his officers were about to throw the body of Ellis over board, which would have been a proper course if there were danger of a bloody conflict, in which corpses might obstruct the working of the ship, he was cool enough to see that this contingency would not arrive, and to preserve the body of the hero for Christian burial That thoughtful action shows how completely he understood the situation and himself at the hour when he was winning one of the greatest naval victories of all time. The nation may safely doff hats to Admiral Schley. Indianap o 1 i s (Ind.) Sentinel. Pnrty Hope the Country Press.

The country paper comes nearer be ing the voice direct of the peo ple proper than anything else and as man believes in himself he believes in his home paper. The home paper is his interest, his interest is the interest of the home paper Learn these two things: Nev er be discouraged because good things get on slowly here, and I never fail daily to do that good I which lies next to your hand. i Do not be in a hurrv hut h diligent. Enter into the sub lime patience of the Lord. Be Charitable in view of it. God can afford to wait; why cannot we, since we have Him to fall back upon? Let patience have her perfect work and bring forth her celestial fruits. Trust in God to weave your little thread into a net, though the patterns show it not. G. McDonald. A Noble Discontent.
