It if far better to quit oxr of your mean traits for twelve months than' to quit tweho of your meanesses for one month and then persue them fur the re maining eleven .months of the year; The new year will be what we make it,' as far as our in dividual lives are concerned, and the mail or woman who re solves to be happy in a health ful, unselfish way is taking the first step toward real happiness. BETTER TAKE THE rAFEP. An Illinois exchange gives the following account of what hap pened to a family too stingy to take their home paper. Tie says:. "We onco knew a man ,who was to stingy to take the news paper in his home town and al ways went over to borrow his neighbor's paper. "One evening lie sent his son over ho borrow the paper, and while the son was on the way be ran into a large stand of bees and in a few minutes his face looked like a summer squash. Hearing the agonized cries of the son, the father ran to his assistance and in doing so ran inloa barbed wire fence, cut ting a handful of flesh from his anatomy and ruining a $i pair of trousers. "The old cow took advantage of the hole in the feme, got into the corn-field and killed herself eating green corn. Hearing the racket, the stingy man's wife ran out of the house, upsetting a four gallon churn full of cream into a basket of kittens, drowning the whole flock. She flipped on the cream and fell down stairs, breaking her leg and a $19 set of false teeth. The baby, left alone, crawled through the spilled cream into the parlor and ruined a HO carpet. During the ex citement the daughter eloptd with the hired man, taking the family savings bank with them.' SCHOOL AND CRIME. Not many of our citizens seri ously consider the relation, of crime to our schools. Where the schools are bst sustained you will find the smallest per cent of crime. You show me a school which gives a high aver age attendance and I will show you a neighboihood which has email use for a grand-jury. Thus you Fee the opportunity for a real live teacher to do good h immense. Many teachers do not realize the responsibility of their calling. Many parents will not realize the responsibility towards their children. So be tween t he two the school is large ly a failure. The school is not intended to take tho place of the home, yet it ought to do more than teach the multiplication table and the rudiment of read ing and sibling. Tho .state takes the schools under i t r charge in order that it may lay the foundation of good citizen ship as well as the foundation of good scholarship. Tho necr ossify for earnest .cooperation between the teacher and parent is at once apparent. Paents. do not let trivial "things keep your children away from school Teacher, set your standard higher than the study of mere text books. Give the rising generation a better idea of a man than a "biped with a pistol in one pocket and a bottle of whiskey in the other." This is a dangerous combination, likely to explode at any time and hurl someone, it may only hurt ITSELF but some one is hurt. We insist that more first class schools is the salvation of out country. When our people wake up to the light idea of education we will not need two weeks court. Ex. ANOTHER CHAUTAUQUA VICTIM Chautauqua "gets" the best of them, and now Vice Presi dent Marshall has followed the example of the illustrious William Jennings Bryan, Champ Clark, Captian Hobson and others, and has signed a contract to deliver" from thirty to forty-five lectures in Missouri, Iowa and Kansas next summer. A good deal of sympathy has been bestowed upon the Vice President because of the fact that he is compelled to live on his salary, and this restricts him to a palatial suite of rooms aim board in one of the most aris tocratic hotels in the United States, where the charges are so high that he undoubtedly has to take up the Chautauqua to "piece out" expenses. Let us try to amagine what a scene the world present if all men the earth around could have and enjoy one perfect Christmas one day in which the Christmas spirit should manifest itself in every human heart in all its happiest, truest, largest meaning. What a fore taste of the millennium such a day would be. ASIIURST'S BARBED FENCE ' Senator.
