the democrats especially a democratic
baptist they are the ruling power, and
to get ahead of them you must get up
early, yes, very early in the morning;
and you must not care particularly if it
does rain, but as early as you do get up
you will always find a democrat theie be

Democratic baptists are in the front cir

Berved in everyday life. While it is the
prpper thing t have for an invited com

more ceremony in the service than for the
family table, it must be remembered that
one should not put on and takeoff pood
manners as one would a garment. They
are a part of one's self, and whether the
family meal consUt of many courses or
only a cup of tea and a slice of toast, it
should always be served decently and in
order, and the manners of the members
the household should be such that one
need not blush for them, even in the finest

If the father and mother be so unfortunate
as not to have had proper training them

wondered if yot. and your present "best

you are gray headed. Xow let its see how
things stand between you and your best

much, but you must confess that very fre

point of showiut great devotion to the

Now isn't it rather silly to have these

but is your regani so frail a thin;; that it

having asked and obtained his father's per

the animal and rode him full against the

carried the prince quietly. The king was
so overjoyed at the courage and skill of his
youthful son that he presented him with
the horse, exclaiming, "( Jo, my son; seek
