We have read, as we always do, with
leaaure this web's woe of The True
)emoerat We find moehin it that is of

rage reader. But the bt expression

Dw-man and with my God." Such a
mtiment can only come from a heart

man can have is to love God and his fel-
Dw-man. "On these two hang all the
aw nd the prophets."
The press is such a power for good

John Collins, editor of the Tallahas-

paper of Florida, annoudees that he in-
nds living a Christian life, ahd calls
pon thegood citizens of Talldiassee to
watch him daily, and tell him of his
isdeeds, and aid him in his good in-
ation. It is a hard proposition for a
wspaper man to be a consistent
hristian, but we truly hope that
brother Collins will become a strong
lower of the "Lowly Naxarene." A
tter, more conscientious and "big-
arted" man does not exist than John
llins. His moral life is exemplary,
d he will be a power for the cause
aong his fellow-men. The editorof a
wspaper has many things to hamper
daily in leading a Christian life,
s work is ale tedious and tiresome,
t to mention the thousand and one
gs that occur every day to try his
mper. His labors return him but lit-
end his duties require the closest at-
ition if his work is properly accom-
shed, and often the returns are so
couraging that it would be a hard
for even Job to remain steadfast

Thirteen years ago, according to a Se
story as told a few days ago to the th
writer by one of the partilcipanta,
there were gathered one evening in a
winter resort hotel on the Gulf of
Mexico a number of prominent public w
and business men, including Senator
Veet Jerome Hill, a leading cotton t
factor of Memphis, a Judge of the Bu- af
preme Court of Ohio, and several re
others. Each man in the party was e
asked to give his impression of the
greatest man he had ever known per- n1
sonally. One after another told the -
story of his estimate of the greatest he
man he had met. until finally all had nm
spoken except the Judge. When his
turn came he said:
"I have listened with much interest la
to what you have all cald about great th
men of your acquaintance. I think I wi
know a greater than any you ave s
mentioned. The man I have in view
is the wisest and fairest counsellor Ca
who ever practiced in any court. He e
is the safest friend as an adviser that en
I have ever known. He is the best
son and the beat husband of my ac-
quaintance. and the purest-miaded
man I have ever known." Cl
"Who is this remarkable man?" aid
one of the party. "He Is," seald the it
judge, "William H. Taft, of Ohio, and

get the clothes Ironed, Just throw them
over the hone."
"AMll right, ma'am," the busy laundry
girl replied without stopping to raise
her eyes from her work in band.
The laundry room was located in an
outhouse adjoining the barn, and occa-
alonally the neighing of the family
horse and the merry voice of Bridget
resounded throughout the house.
Returning to the laundry house a
couple of hours later, the lady could
ecamely believe her eyes nor restrain
her mirth when she beheld the fam-
fly horse, standing patiently belsde

Ironed sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths

With an anxlous look on her honest
face Bridget observed. "I'm glad
you've come, ma'am, for I'll have to

Lisa is dead t yes dear trie g. but
let ua think of her as "a sweet little
angle in the bosom of our Savior."
They tell uas that Go&, never loves uas
better than when He senda us bitter
troubles. How hard that is to believe,
but if we have faith in the certainty of
the life beyond, then we can bear such
blows as this.
To consign our loved ones to the
tomb is a prostrating agony ; but when
we can raise our heads in the serene
hope of a reunion then the keenest edge
of sorrow is tempered, and we can feel
that, "Somewhere and somehow we
shall meet again." Then, too, the con-
viction that God is good, and doth not
afflict us willingly, helps us steadily for-
ward, giving us gleams of light in the
valley of the shadow of death.
Just as the birds had gone to rest and
slowly the darkness was stealing over
all, the pure and spotless soul of little
Lina Gwynn was'preprng to wing its'
flight from her earthly home to the
home above. Death came without a
pam or a struggle, only the livid hues
of her delicate skin told how rapidly
death was changing her countenance
and sondin her away. When the tid-
ings of her death spread through the
neighborhood that night there were
many wakeful and weeping eyes in
nearly every dwelling. But we must
look up from our earthly homes to the
beautiful home above, to which her soul
has flown, and think of the sweet
flower lent to us for so short awhile,
and to adorn her parents' home where
she was so tenderly cherished. This
little delicate flower has now been
transplanted to the garden of the Lord
where it will expand into more won-
dross beauty than an earth culture
can create. Oh I couolthe veil which
hides her from your view be lifted for
one brief moment, and we behold the
radiant glory of that upper world; could
we have seen her asl form wi ng
its flight in snowy whiteness toward the
throne of God, and there amid the an-
gel-choir singing the angel-song with
happy voice without a fear, pain or sor-
row, then shouldn't we be comforted
and in time rejoice that in her innocence
and purity she is "forever safe with
her od. .
What a blessed thing it is to be par-
ents of an angle and to think that out
of that shining band of little ones gath-
ered to beauty the palace of our Lord,
your angel child shall watch and wait to
welcome you. An angel in heaven,
what a thrilling and comforting
May Jesus, the Comforter of all sor-
row, "so fill your hearts with rich con-
solation of His love that you may be
sustained through all this trying scene,
and be able to yield your precious treas-
ure unmurmuringly to Him "who doeth
all things for the best." "What we
know not now we shall know here-
after." May God in his mercy put

Do not let us look nto thde rave hr
little Lina ; she is not there; se is
above with the redeemed ; her life hes
just begun. Look up and see her tthe
armsof the blessed Jeeus, who smilingly
says to you: "Suffer the little ehikklr
to come unto me, and forbid them not."
In the spiritual garden you have now a
new interest; your own plant is there;
and the great gardener has Himself un-
dertaken its culture, you may be sure
it shall become a glorious flower. Let
not your hearts be troubled; a heavenly
mansion has received your darling child,
and ere long you shall go to meet her
there, then, if not before, you shall
learn the meaning of those blessed
words, "What I do, thou knowest not
now, but shall know hereafter."
"Oh, lift thine eyes above !
What can a mother's fondest wishes
For her lost darling, like the bliss of
And thou must go to her !
May the same robe that made her spot-
less in the sight of Heaven.
The costly robe a dying Saviour

The ties that bind ye now to earth are

May every voice that mingled here

Unite to swell the ceaseless choir of
Heaven. A FRIEND.

Blundere of the Type.
Wrar since the Introduction of type-
ttting errors, weird or comical, have
emanated from printers' offices. The
tkem are not always to be shoul-
on to the compositor, for bad
handwriting must be taken into ac-
omat. Here are a few instances of
actual blunders collected by a proof-
reader In the course of his daily work:
"His blushing bride" was transform-
ed into "his blustering bride."
A major was stated to have "served

writer thought he used the word '"dl-

nla 187 Small Byes, a Blackfoot who
had come down from the north and
joined the Arapahoes and lived with
them, told Black Kettle, a Cheyenne In
Oeorge Bent's lodge, about having
killed, between the Cimarron and
Beaver creek, a tributary of the north
fork of the Canadian, a buffalo bull
whieh had only one hind leg. Accord-
bga to Small Eyes' story, it did not ap-
pear that the bull had lost one of its
hind legs, but rather that It never had
had more than one. The hind leg was
very large, seemed to be in the mid-
die of the body Instead of at one side,
and there was no sign of any missing
leg. It looked as If the two hind legs
which the buffalo ordinarily has had
tin some way fused together.
The war party with which Small
Mree was traveling was passing along
aear a hollow when the bull came up
eat of It, and some of the men ran
ahead, got around It and shot It with
a gun. It was not able to run fast,
but rather hobbled along.-Forest and
Saved by a Photograph.
A very remarkable Incident occurred
a Rio de Janeiro.
A passenger on board one of the
lage liners took a photograph of the
harbor. It Included a small yacht
which had sailed In the morning with
two men in her, but returned in the
evening with one only. The survivor
said his companion had fallen over-
board, but his statement was not be-
lieved. Hle was tried and sentenced to
death. The matter had by this time
come to the ears of the photographer,
who remembered that the picture had
been taken on the day of the "crime"
(or accident) and that the scene em-
braced a yacht. On examining the
print more carefully he noticed a small
speck on the sail and in order to de-
termine what It was had an enlarge-
aent made. It proved to be the figure
et a man falling. It was shown to the
authorities at once, and the condemned
man was released.

"Some fool," said he, "has been try-
ing to fatten up a batch of Saddle i
Bocks with cornmeal. You might as
well try to invigorate flowers with
corned beef bash. But It is a common
error to believe that cornmeal or oat-
meal wUl fatten oysters. I continually
find oysters with their shells stained
with those grains. It makes me laugh.
As a matter of fact, there is no such
thing as fattening oysters. All you can
do Is swell them up with water, pr.-
eisely the same as water swells a
sponge. You put them In fresh water,
which, being less dense than the soft

SILAGE FOR MILK COWS.
Moot Profitable Way to Ped Thil
By M. A. GOODRICH.
Perhaps there is more benelt derived
from silage by feeding It to milk cows
than by feeding It to any other kind
of stock. At any rate, It sla used more
and thought more of by dairymen than
by any other .lass of farmers.
Cows should never be fed exclusively
on silage. They need some dry forage
to go with It; they need a variety. Be-
sides this, corn ullage Is a carbona-
ceous food and needs some more nitrog-
enous food to go with It to make a
well balanced ration. About thirty
or at most forty pounds a day of
allnge Is as much as should Iw fed to
each cow. It should he fed from the
top of the allo, taking off nbout two
inches In depth from the entire sur-
face each day. for if It is long exposed
to the air It will be damaged. If the
feeding commences Immediately after
filling the silo-and this 1W a food way
to do It-there will be mn damaged
silage at all. Care should bI taken at
each time of feeding to leay the sur-
face smooth and even and 0t0 pick and
stir It up with the fork, ftf'dat will
let in the air and cause damage.
My way is to feed the as ration
In two feeds, both night ant fIorning,
and It is better to feed after 'iflking.

The Chinese Hoe.
The ohinese farmer stands second to
none in all the world. This is all the
more remarkable since he has really so
few Implements with which to work
the marvels he produces. His only im-
plements are the hoe. the plow and the
harrow. Beyond these the Chinese
farmer never dreams of desiring any
other. The first of these tools seems
never to be out of his hands, for It is
the one upon which he relies the most
and is his most effective implement. It
really takes the place of the spade In
England, though the latter is never put
to such extensive and general uses as
the hoe. The Chinaman can do any-
thing with It but make It speak. A
farmer well on in years can easily be
recognized amidst a number of work-
ingmen by the curve his hands have
taken from holding the bhoe n the

Chalres Prsemal and Locals
Chaires. Nov. 10.-We have been
feasting on good things here In a spir-
Itual sense and, as this is the highest
good that can come to us, we will tell
of It first.
itev. J. Edgar Wilson came out from
Tallahassee Friday afternoon and gave
us a good sermon In the evening.
Saturday morning a good crowd was
present to hear his Interesting dis-
After dinner, which was served on
the grounds, the Quarterly Conference
was held, and this is always Interest-
Ing, as the members of the church are
thereby Informed as to its finances.
Sunday morning dawned bright an4
beautiful. The large congregation
which gathered seemed to have at
tuned their spirits to accord with the
preacher. Good n-unic was furnished
and all this inspired him to deliver
his able discourse.
Again in the evening he had much
liberty in giving us his sermon upon
"Sowing and Reaping." This was fol-
lowed by a very touching and beauti-
ful service, as this was possibly his
last visit to us. or probably in a long
time, and we believe that much good
will come to our church by this ser-
vice alone It touched many hearts.
Mr. Wilson has endeLred himself to us
In a peculiar way during his four
years among us as our Presiding Elder.
By his executive ability he has built
up this district marvelously. He al-
ways comes to us filled with the spirit
which enables him to clearly expound
the Scriptures, and together with his
personal magnetism, Is there any won-
der that he brings things to pass?
Sometimes there crosses our path In
life those with whom it is hard to
part. And Mr. and Mrs. Wilson are
among those, but we truly hope they
may come our way again at no far
