Tcksdws And Fridays, POLITICS. We ften hear it mentioned that, ""Hiere is nothing 'in politics,'' so snay it appear to them. By jpriiitics ard political parties is aceamt the means embodying the actions of men through which the government ofa country is administered. The books say hz&, ""political means pertaining il iSie policy or the administra tion of government; political, in its ihigher and true sense, means ihafc which pertains to the gov ernment of a nation. In this sense it includes the entire system of a nation's laws, constitutional sandstatutory." "Political rights consists in the power to partici pate directly or indirectly, in the "establishment or management of SgoFwernment. " "Political power ccsasists of the three great attri lirj&es of sovereignty, namely, legislative, executive, and judi ast authority. " . This is all inherent in the peo g&e. Why then do we hear men symgtnere is notmng m poii-;chastenino our parents ministered rticsT Only one answer can pos- unto us. We may look back and jsMylie given, that is the one so think we know where they made asserting must be entirely ignor-jsome mistakes, but we have no aid:. -of what he says in that r3-.regrets over our childhood chastis ity, this is whv he must be a man of learning, thi is why he 'must be capable of holding together successfully week to week 20 pr 30 children of ail ages and temp eraments, children with all de-i sretsot home training, from good to none at all. - , v. ' v The law of Heaven is obedience. The Universe is held by the same law. Every earthly government must ' rtcogn'ze - the same or an.trchy and ruin will be its shameful distruction.. No home will ever be worthy of the name without the same law recognized by every member of . the house hold., ..Disobediences under any government dare not gounpunish- td. Rebellion is crime and must be justly punished, otherwise no government can stand. The students of our common schools must be subject to the rules and regulations that are laid down for the governmehf of the school. The law delegates to, the teacher the right to enforce the law, using whatever reasonable means that wisdom may dictate, in govern ing his school, and when this power is properly used it seems to me to be the duty of parents to stand by their teacher. God gives the child parents and gives the parents a responsibility for which we must answer. We a1! are thankful today for all the ara visiting M-. ' and Mrs. Pal.ner relativea in this vicinity.' .

In view of this great truth rMng out of the necessity for . ear 'existence as a nation, the democratic and republican parties Ihase been strongly entrenched in tlie hearts of our people for lull a century. The other par ties Tvhich often spring up for a srsjrt time have a slight growth agitate, do some good at times; arouse the older parties to con sider old questions again which 3iave at various times beencon ssi&ered and passed out of notice. 11 would seem that there issome hmg in politics when we learn 4he truth. How then can a man fee a republican or democrat in national and state elections and in local elections the opposite? . It would be as consistent to find a man serving his great Creator on Sunday and other selected times, and a worldly; wicked life ai other times. In politics are embodied the principles of gov ernment state, local and nation al, which makes our country a failure, or us proud of its history and progress. ing. it our parents did ttieir duty on every line where they had understanding we are exceeding ly thankful and would not have missed one stroke of the rod ap plied bv a loving hand, that has long ago departed from us. The same hand that labored and toil ed for our support, physically and often smoothed our troubled brow ana . field our little Hand as we walked over dangerous places and caught us as we were falling, that hand also applied the rod of correction fcr the purpose of our security trotn trie evil mat so thickly surrounded us. Said Archie Brown on the scaf- told in rortland a lew years ago: ''I was a disobedient boy, as a result of my disobedience I am to be hanged.',' Brown's case, is repeated among us too often. Disobedience toward the teacher, encouraged by the parents; dis obedience toward the parent, then the" downward course is rapid. Disobedience and disrespect for law must be punished whether in home, schoolroom, state or nation. - F. B. Williamson.

Mr. Claud Mansfield, of Albany, a business caller here yesterday.

That is the kind the Gazette turns out. Prices for good printing are based on the cost of good material, and the labor and taste employed in doing the work. To this every printer adds a percentage for profit. The cheap printer charges the same profit as the good printer the difference in cost to you comes out of the value of the material used in fact you pay. for all you get. Skill, taste and ex perience are ne cessary factors in producing GOOD printing. Examine your work, and don't pay for it until you know it is all right. It is your own fault' if you pay "good money for rotten eggs.
