I, therefore, in the name of our Heavenly Father, the immor tal souls of men, of home and of the highest interest of our com monwealth; beg that we wipe out all lines of distinction, and lay a- side every hinderance, and come together as one man, to the help of the lord against the mighty, and work together as Christians for the salvation of souIb and the glory of the Master.

Thomas Powers passed xuietly away, sur rounded by friends and loved ouns. He was a devout member of the M. E. Church south, and was sixty five years of age. For many years he was an invalid, and his suffer ings were borne with christian for titude. Uncle Tommie has gone from our midst. His eyes are closed, his lips are sealed, his aged hands are folded upon his breast, and he sleeps his last long sleep on the hill side. When the spring comes, the oak and maple will put on their green garniture again, the flowers will unfold their many-tinted beauties to the sun, and th5 willow will go on sighing to the end; but . his heavy eye-lids will never lift again that his eyes may brighten at the sight of beauty, or moist at the sound of a sigh. He lies shrouded in death's cold embrace, but is that the end? Does life end at the grave? We believe "ther is a realm where the rainbow never fades, where the beautiful little stars will be spread out before us like the islands that slumber on the ocean; and where the beautiful beings that pass before us like vis ions, will stay in our presence for ever. Kind words, friendly smiles, thoughtful actions and generous deeds, marked the every day life of our departed friend. He has left a noble example for the emulation of those who re main. He leaves a noble wife and -cvrral childn-n who have our sin-i-re sy pnthy in their bercaw ment and sorrow. A Friend. Lnwrcnceburjr Institute Notes. W. C. Spencc, W. T. Nixon, W. R. Smith. J. M.

Hughes made interesting talks to the students. We appre ciated their visit and trust they will come again. J. C. Stewart, J. M. Gilmore, J- M. Alfo'd, Polk Comer, and Bro. Paris Simms were with us Thurs day morning. Bro. Simms opened school for us. The visitors volutecred to say many pleasant things about the school, its discipline, and its meth od of imparting instruction. One man said the children could not help learning if they wanted to. We thank them for their en couraging presence and for their enthusiastic words. More students have entered and there are others on the road. Let every body come and see us. W. T. Chafin, prin. A proverbial "quill driver" gets off the following, and from the tone of his expression, it is reason able to suppose that he has made a miserable mistake, and is trying to vent his "spleen" by hurling bitter epithets at the fair name of lovely woman. "Women are wise on sudden, and fools on rflection. Women laugh when they can. and weep when they please. A follish woman is known by her finerey. A melon and a woman is hard to choose. A bag of flea's is easier to watch than one woman. A young wife is an old man's post horee to the grave. A widow is as dangerous as a horse that has cast its rider. A gossipping woman talks about every body, and every body talks about her. Who takes an eel by the tail, or a woman at her word, holds nothing. A house full of daughters, is a cellar full of sour beer. A deaf husband and a blind wife make a happy couple. One hair of a maiden's herd pulls harder than ten yoke of oxen Maidens want nothing lut hus bands-then want everything." THE RACKET.
