Whatever tailings you may have and Heaven knows all have some That they should struggle day and night to try and overcome Ne'er stand within the market-place, and as you coldly frown, With all the strength that you possess, throw cudgels at j our town. Do not upon the corner stand and open ly declare Her merchants are the meanest men to be found anywhere ; For doing so you only bring upon the town disgrace ; Besides, my friend, this is no way to build up any place. What if the town hall is not as large as you, perhaps, desire The meeting-house is over-large for the height of the spire. There's a better way, my friend, the town's good to advance, Than throwing cudgels at her head whene'er you get a chance. Do not unceasingly complain about her streets and squares ; The failures her officials have, the par son's talks and prayers. And do not in an endless plaint your small opinion give Of how much better things were done where once you chanced to live. Do not throw cudgels at your town, be cause it is not right, And if you do the chances are that most of it is spite. If people do not look at things exactly as you do. I would not be surprised to learn the trouble is with you. If things are not what they should be. and ought to be improved, Roll up your sleeves and go to work and have what's wrong removed. But let me say whatever line of action you pursue, Do not destroy what you now have till you can build anew. Exchange. How I Teach a Colt. Our Dumb Animals. When I wish to teach a colt to cany a saddle, I first put a blanket on him, folded to about saddle size, then a cir- cingle strapped loosely. At the next lesson I make the circingle quite tight. At the fourth lesson I tie the colt to a hitching post, add put a hoy on him. He soon gets accustomed to the weight and does not mind it ; then I take the boy off, remove the blanket and put on the saddle ; then put the boy in the saddle, letting him sit there for fifteen minutes, but moving himself about and otherwise making himself conspic uous. Then I put the saddle on the horse, put the boy on horseback, and lead the horse about fifteen minutes, then I give the lad the rein? and let him gently exercise the horse for half an hour. After this course ot training any man or boy can ride the colt, pro viding he has sense enough to manage him kindlv. Fcur Big Successes.

Worlli SCOTLAND NECK, N. C, THURSDAY, THE MASSACHUSETTS C02OHT TEE TO COME SOUTH. Will It Do Us Any Good? Charlotte Observer. A committee has been appointed by the Massachusetts Legislature to come South to investigate the condition of cotton manufacture. The agitation about N8w England mills moving South started in consequence of arguments made by mill men before a committee of the Legislature of Massachusetts against proposed labor lawe. What was published about the South in New England papers, was simply a recital of the arguments of the mill men. Quite a number ot Southern towns sent "del egations" on to Boston to solicit the location of moving Xew England mills to their respective localities. These delegations found that the interest of the New England mill man was entirely with their own Legislature. That what was published about the advantages of the South was purely argumentative. It is desirable that the committee shall be well treated. But it is doubt ful if any advantage can come to the South as a consequence of the errand that brings them here. They will learn that the South has some advan tages. This will tend to bring about schemes for national legislation to equalize hours of labor. It will tend also to excite the interest of labor agi tators. Neither the employer nor em ploye in the South has anything to gain from the discussion of our advan tages. When advantages are exhibited the competitor is always benefited. As far as inducements to develop,the resources of the country are concerned, this ought to be done in ways that will not jeopardize its future prosperity. Tne strikes of the coal miners on the line of the Norfolk & Western road about a year or more ago are said to have been due to meddling committees from the Hocking Valley fields of Ohio. As a party of gentlemen coming South on a visit, the members of the Massachusetts committee ought to be welcomed and cordially entertained. As a delegation looking for a basis on which to start an agitation, we want to give them the least possible encourage ment consistent with civility. It is only a few years ago that it was agreed in Xew England that the South could not compete in cotton manufactures. Xow that the influence of Southern competition is being felt we are likely to hear that our methods are all wrong. It's a serious matter to have a stranger admitted into a household with the privilege of gathering up all the data possible for use in a controversy in his own domestic circle, and more especially so if his family quarrel has become a subject of public gossip. It would seem to be proper to treat the Massachusetts committee well, but to trouble them as little as possible with the private affairs ot Southern manufacturing con cerns or of our methods. A committee of manufacturers com ing here to compara methods ; coming to make, as it were, a fair exchange of ideas, methods, results, etc., etc., would be in an entirely different position from one that has nothing to give, but only- wants information that may be turned to no other use than to extend a dis cussion in Xew England about a matter that is none of our affair. Georgia's Accomplished Poultry. A little twelve-year-old daughter of a hotel-keeper at Baxter Ga., has a pet hen that sings to a piano accompani ment. The little girl will go into the yard, pick up the hen, bring her into the parlor, place her on the piano and commence playing something lively, and the hen will sit back on her dig nity, raise her head and ing like her life depended on the effort.

An old white horse attached to an empty express wagon balked at the cor ner of Twenty-sixth and Broadway, New York, the other day, and for three quarters of an hour successfully resist ed every attempt to make him move on. The driver belabored him with a whip, tugged at the reins and yelled, but to no purpose. Then a crowd gath ered and began to give advice freely. One man seized the horse by the ears, another grasped the bridle and began to pull, while two or three others braced themselves against the animal's hind quarters aad tried to push him forward. The creature didn't move a foot. One wise fellow blindfolded the horse with the driver's coat, after which he declar ed the animal would moved right along ; but the plan was a dismal failure. An other insisted that if a plug of tobacco was forced into the creature's mouth he would be all right, saying which he thrust a big piece of navy twist be tween the horse's jaws. The stubborn beast shook the dose from his mouth and remained immovable. Meanwhile the crowd continued to grow, and every newcomer had a plan oi his own ior solving the problem, which by this time had effectually stopped the move ment of vehicles in Broadway for two or three blocks in either direction. The horse was apparently there to stay. The driver was in despair. The four or five policemen who had been diawn to the scene by the gathering crowd looked sheepish and puzzled. A lady who had watched the scene from the window of a neighboring cafe finally turned to the gentleman accompanying her and said : "Go and start that horse. These men never can do it. They don't understand. How shall you do it? Simply take a halter, walk up to the horse quietly and hitch it to his bit-ring. Take the other end in your hand, speak to the horse gently, but firmly, and lead him away." The gen tleman went out and borrowed a hitch ing strap from a hackman, and the crowd jeered him as he approached the balking horse. He attached the strap to the bit-ring as directed, patted the animal kindly on the neck, and took the end of the halter in his hand. With a word of command he started to lead the way, and the horse followed as promptly and obediently as if that were exactly what he had been waiting for all the while ! The crowd stood back in wonderment and admiration. Some of the superstitious ones declared that the animal had been hypnotized. "There is no trick about it," explain ed the little woman laughingly to her friends as the gentleman rejoined the party in the cafe. "With all those hali-witted men fooling around him the horse probably felt that he knew as much as they did. What he needed was neither beating nor yelling, but the presence of a master. To a horse, as to other animals, the hitching strap. rope or chain is the token of his own subjection. The sight of it will subdue him when all other means have failed. Horses are a good deal like some men you may lead them easily, but you can't drive them." Three Times in Five Days. Richmond Dispatch. Oxford. X. C, has had quite a ro mance, which culminated last night in the marriage of M. T. Clayton and Miss Maggie Smith at Henderson. About ten days ago cards were issued announc ing their marriage to-day in the Pres byterian church here ; but, owing to the youthfulness of Miss Smith rela tives interposed, and as a result she discarded him three distinct times in five days, with a reconciliation on each occasion. Some hitch in securing the license here necessitated their marriage in Henderson. Miss Smith is the old est daughter of Mrs. Louis Smith. Mr. Clayton is the young merchant who made an assignment last Saturday. The old scriptural sobriety was effec tual doing ; ascetic sobriety is effectual dullness. Beecher. MARCH 14. 1895. the siffesencs settee:;. 1 f?'V Citinyxxnioii. No doubt it ban puzzled many Kn. who like to know the whys and w hciv forw of thinjr?, to understand why they are addres.Hi by the honorable title f "master," while their father .ire called only ' mister" winch word, they 1ihc been taught, is onv a corruption f "master." When Johnny lcome. sixteen or seventeen years old, he grows very anxious to le rid of the boyish title, and the first one who addresses a letter to him as "Mr." Hatter- him immense ly. Perhaps, if he is a curious hid. lie wonders why he should le so eager to exchange a greater title for a less. At what age does a boy cease to be "master" and Income "mister?" Has the change anything to do with the putting off of short trousers? Scarcely, for it does not come, as a usual thing, quite so early. Does it accompany the dropping of the voice from the upper to the lower register? Hardly, for t Ik: t, too, generally comes first. Has it any thing to do with tha development of the mustache? No, for many a totally beardless youth has long since been accorded the insignificant but manly title of "Mr." The age of "sixteen or seventeen" is given sometwhat indefinitely by the authorities on form and etiquette as the ago when a boy ceases to !c a "master." Probably if he is "old for his age," he may be called "Mr." at sixteen; but if he remains boyish a long time, he will still get his letters as. a "master" at eighteen. But no authority can tell exactly why it is that the title "master," which in Shakepeare's time was given to all gentlemen, or respectable merchants, or artisans who had no other title, survives now only in the case of boys. It has happened so, and that is practically all that can be said about it. Really the word "mister" is as old a th word "master." Both are supposvl to be derived from the Latin rnagist r a chief, leader, or teacher through the earlier English forms maisttr, meister, maistre, mister. But "mister" was not used in its ordinary, modern and formal sense until some time in the last century. How to Clean Clothes. Scientific American. The American Analyst tells how to do it, as follows : Take, for instance, a shiny old coat, vest or pair of trousers of broadcloth, cassimere or diagonal. The scourer makes a strong, warm soapsuds, and plunges the garment into it, souses it up and down, rubs the dis places and, if necessary, puts it through a second time; then rinses it through several waters and hangs it up to dry on the line. When nearly dry betakes it in. rolls it up lor an hour or two and then presses it. An old cotton cloth is laid on the outside of the coat and tho iron passed over that until the wrinkles are out ; but the iron is removed before the steam ceaes to rise from the go4s, else they would le shiny. Wrinkles that are obstinate are removed by lay ing a wet cloth over them and passing the iron over that. If any shiny places are seen, they rre treated as the wrin kles are the iron is lifted while the lull cloud of steam rises and brings the nap with it. Cloths should alwayshave a suds made especially for them, as in that which has been used for white cotton or woolen cloths lint will be left in the water and will cling to the cloth. In this manner we have known the same coat and trousers to be renewed time and time again, and have all the look and feel of new garments. Good broadcloth and its fellow cloths will bear many washings, and look letter everv time because of them. D wight L.
