U9al, commercial or political ife'to

the nineteenth century she bhao

soul to some man. She did not own
the clothes she wore, even if 9he
had earned the money with which
to purchase them. She had no leal
control over her own person, e n-
ings dr children.
Women were shut out of the
schools and colleges, the trades and
professions and all offices under the
government; paid the most meagre
wages in the few occupations open
to them, ane denied everywhere the
necessary opportunities for their
best development. Worse still,
women had no proper appreciation
of themselves as factors in civiliza-
tion, and. the few noble souls who
were possessed with a prophetic
vision of what the future held in
store for women, were met on all
tides with ridicule and contempt.
Believing self-denial to be a higher
virtue than self-development, women
ignorantly made ladders of them-
selves by which fathers, brothers and
sons reached their highest ambitions,
creating an impassable gulf between
them. Nothing was more common
than to see the-sons of a family edu-
cated while- the daughters remained
Dr. Gregory, who was standard
authority upon female proprietyy in
the 18th century, in his work entitled
"Legacy to my Daughter," says:
"Should you be so unfortunate as
to possess a robust constitution by
nature, assimilate such sickly deli-
cacy as is necessary to keep up the
proper female charm." He cau-
tioned all women to carefully hide
any good sense or learning they
might possess as men looked with
malignant eye upon women of sense
or learning.
For over one hundred years after
public schools were established in
Massachusetts, girls were not allowed
to attend and when the effort was
made on the part of one of the trus-
tees of Hatfield school to admit girls,
the chairman sprang to his feet, ex-
claiming, "What! She's in Hatftield
school? No, never!"
Ms late as 1947, when Lucy Stone
graduated from Oberlin College, the
first college to open its doors to wo-
men, they would not allow her to
read her n4 eating essay, but said
some professor would have to read it
for her as it would not be proper for
a woman to read in publ a. Nearly
forty years after, when Oberlin cele-
brated her semi-centennial, Lucy
Stone was invited to be one of the
speakers at that great gathering. At
one time when a minister was asked
to give notice that a woman would
speak in the town he announced that
a woman would attempt to crow Jike
cock., i
-Today two-thirds of the colleges
and universities of the United S 1ates,
including every State Univeity
west of Ohio, are open alike to fen

regularly ordained ministers; scres

They are organized in cluL'; eer
still, they unite with men in mkny

The suffering, the doubt, the obloquy
which has been eanured by the pio-
neers in the woman movement will
never be fully known or understood.
For sixty years and more, a vigorous
agitation has been waged in the Uni-
ted States to establish equal rights
for women with men. Under its in -
fluence and guided by the leadership
of brave men and women, the evolu-
tion of woman's rights has moved on
without a break.

A Bird's Eye View of the Colored

trial College is taking on new life.
This is not always apparent at first
sight. President T. DeS. Tucker is
too well known and the fruit of his,
labors has been attended with so
high a degree of satisfaction which
forbids even an editor, though good
natured he may be, from attempting
any expressions bordering on flat-
tery. The industrial idea which is
taking such deep hold upon the
minds of the American people is
now on a healthy boom in the above
mentioned institution. The State
Board of Education appropriated
about one thousand (*1,000) dollars
for the benefit. of the industrial de-
partment. Over four hundred ($400)
dollars have been expended on
building and repairs and about six
hundred ($600) dollars or more on

and tools in order to establish that
department on a more substantial
basis. The students, under the
careful training of Prof. L. D. Hile-
land, are making towel-racks, plain
and fancy tables, step-ladders, book
cases, push-carts, wheelbarrows,
carts and wagons. With these ad-
vantages which the State is placing
within the grasp of her colored
youth, she will soon have

need to feel justly proud of
her sable sons and daughters,
who are acquiring useful knowl-
edge along other industrial lines,
such as laundrying, dressmaking and
the culinary art, which is one of the
most important. If these advantages
were denied the colored youths they
would undoubtedly in the future
prove a menace to our common citi-

completed, built by the students of

will be carried on under the manage-
ment of Prof. Hoffman, who is very
proficient and conversant with this
long neglected art of dairy culture

soon be able to demonstrate that we

The origin of the word doll is c:r.-
ous. Centuries ago. when saints' names
were much in vogue for children. St.
Dorothea was the most popular, and
her name the best and luckiest that
could be given to a little girl. The
nickname was Dolly. or Doll. and from
giving babies the liii.' kiiaie it was aiL
easy step to p; it on to tlhe little
images of which tlhe bahuies were so
The word dul! is not found in conm-

dence and promptly objected to, the
reason being given that a justice could
not swear himself.

being worm on the eomtinent dolls were
beautifully and Wpemtvy dressed
amd sent to the various European comn-
tries. and from the model ordnlers were
taken. Tbhe dolls, to show off their
costly garb. must be made of more
precious stuff than wood. so wax and
china and even ivory ones were made.
Thuringia is the land where most
dolls are born-puppetland. as it is call-
ed on this account. About 20Q years
ago most of the dolls were made in
Flanders, and they were called not
dolls, but Flanders' babies. There used
to be an old English couplet which ran

At one European doll factory of the
present day 100.000 dolls are produced
annually, some 500 men. women and
children being employed. To make
one talking doll requires the Joint labor
of 30 men. Dolls' eyes are made in un-
derground rooms, into which the sun-
light rarely peeps, and violet orbs .are
the most difficult to color. There is
one town in Germany where three-
fourths of all the dolls' eyes In the
world are made. Only in the case of
the most expensive dolls is real human
hair used.
In a doll factory are wood carvers.
beadmakers. leg and arm makers, eye-
makers. portrait artists, hairdressers.
doll sewers and doll stuffers: also a
small army of fashionable dressmakers
and milliners.
The Hindoo child Is probably the
only doll-less child In the world. The
little Egyptians have their wooden
"Ushabti." the same in style as 4.000
years ago. These were sometimes
made of porcelain. When a child died.
Its dolls were buried with it. in the ex-
pectation that their spirit forms would
rise and do service in another world.
The paradise of dolls is Japan. where
they are most elaborately and gor-
geously attired affairs. So are the dolls
of Kloto-"genroku." as they are call
ed. They are often valuable wood
carvings, enameled in colors or statu-
ettes of great artistic merit.
One of the most interesting collec.
tions of dolls in this country is that
belonging to the bureau of etll,4lu4y.

the tribe-the god of the snow. the god
that eats up the rainclouds, the fire
god, the sun god and the corn goddess.
The Uni children play with these dolls
as other children do. Any one who
goes Into a Uni habitation is certain to
see a row of these dolls suspended
from the ceiling. When not in use.
they are hung up until wanted.
La Infantila is a doll with a history
It Is-made of clay and is considered by
its owner, a Mexican lady. and by
hosts of other persons to be a worker
of miracles, and quantities of costly
gifts are constantly offered to it. A

clines in a canopy bed of solid silver.
It has beautiful dresses and rich Jew-

who visit the doll. as a part of the serv-

Some years ago Justice of the Peace
Beasley of Missouri was personally In-
terested in a lawsuit, being a party
thereto. It was necessary for him to
make an affidavit, and he deprecated
the idea of making it before another
Justice or a notary and depriving him
self of a fee. So he filled oat his affi-
davit, swore to It before hirmiself, sign-
ed it as justice and as witness and
awaited developments. He was sure
that he would win and thus be able to
tax the costs up to the other side.
When the case came up before Judge
Kelley, the affidavit was offered in evi-

medical science has discovered no
remedy either to alleviate materially
its accompanying distret or to actu-
ally prevent its spread. J The situa-
tion, therefore, is much raver than
that which the American ere forced
to face in Cuba when Hllow fever
made its appearance in tPe ranks of
the army. Dread as is tis scourge,
it is still subject to cure #nd ultimate
control. But the curse o| leprosy re-
mainh an unrestrained agency of
death, by slow but sure stages. The
admission that "at least" e 0,000 cases
are on record is accompanied by the
statement that many of the victims
have isolated themselves,lo that it is
impossible to secure an absolutely
accurate census of the cases in the
archipelago. How small i part of the
actual number of lepers has been dis-
covered can Ie but conjectured, but
it is probable that a systematic search
will reveal a condition of affairs far
more serious than has beqn reported.

year would seem to run more nearly
on a parity wih the movement in
1891-1892 than any other season.
While we believe it has moved faster
than the average, we do not now be-
lieve that it has moved as fast as the
fastest. In the early part of the sea-
son, during the cotton famine
months, the movement was as rapid,
in our opinion, as it could possibly
be. We are informed that the farm-
ers camped around the gin-
houses and rushed their cot-
ton to market with the utmost
rapidity. During the three weeks
following the break of October 10th,
we believe cotton was marketed more
slowly than usual, and that rapid
marketing did not again set in until
the November advance, since which
date the movement has been more
than normal. It is safe to conclude,
therefore, that the movement in
sight to date is somewhere between
the average and the fastest of the past
twelve years.
"In our opinion, an advance in
prices will bring on a large January
movement. There is a balance left
of this crop unmarketed, varying in
amount anywhere from 2,500,000 to
2,000,000 bales. Picking and gin-
ning is practically concluded, and
this remaining portion of the crop is

A Good Suggestion.
The following appears in a recent
issue of the Monticello Tribune:
Another important question to
come before the next Legislature is
that of improving the Capitol build-
ing at Tallahassee. Whether to re-
model and add to the old building,
or construct a new building for the
use of the Supreme Court and Rail-
road Commission, and leave the pres-
ent building for the use of the Leg-
islature and Cabinet officials, is the
question, and upon these lines senti-
ment and opinion will likely divide.
As to the main question, it is gener-
ally concededed that a liberal appro-
priation should be made for the im-
provement of the Capitol, and the

biased control. It is the teacher's
duty to be sure that he or she is
fully qualified, mentally and morally,
to fill the office of teacher, 'or, if oth-
erwise, not to undertake it. Once
assured that the teacher's fully quali-
fied to enter upon his duties, and as-
sume the rights of this office, it is the
duty of the teacher to demand, se-
cure and maintain the respect and
friendship of the patron. Without
due respect from the patron, without
full and hearty co-operation between
parent and teacher, no teacher, how-
ever well qualified, can exercise a
proper influence and beneficial con-
trol over the pupil. Let the child
but once hear sneering, unkind, bit-
ter remarks in the home circle about
his teacher and that instant the
teacher is degraded in the eyes of
his pupil, his influence over the child
is weakened, his full power to control
is gone, and brute force is the only
safeguard left for the teacher.
How unwise then that the patron
did not first seek the teacher
and talk fully, freely and kindly
with him concerning the child's com-
plaints or deficiencies. The greater
hurt has fallen upon the child, and
must influence the coming life of
that child.

"In our opinion, therefore, the
maximum of this season's output may
not exceed 9,500,000 bales, and may
fall materially below it. In this con-
nection it is a noteworthy fact, that
to the 1st of January in 1897, when
the total crop was only 8,757,000
bales, the amount in sight was 6,398,-
192 bales, or only 134,17' bales less
than the amount in sight to the same
date this season. In 1891-1892,
when the crop was only 9,035,370
bales, the amount in sight to Janu-
ary 1, 1892, was 6,446,086 bales, or
only 86,283 bales less than the

"It is also interesting to note that
in the crop of 1891-1892, the amount
in sight to December 1, 1891, was

according to the Chronicle, was 4,-

In ourlopinion, Mr. Ellison has n-
derestimated the consumption for
this season. We are informed from
the most reliable sources that unless
there is a prohibitive advance in the
price of cotton, the Southern con-
sumption this season will equal, if
not exceed, last year's. While some
mills may consume less, the consump-
tion of the new mills will more than
make good this deficiency. There
may be some decline, in the consump-
tion of the Northern mills, but with
the enormous prosperity of the whole
country and with the' large individ-
ual purchasing power this prosperity
gives, we cannot but believe that we
shall see during the rest of this sea-
son an expanding instead of a con-
tracting trade. Mr. Ellison reports
the consumption of the European
mills for November'at 155,000 bales
per week, against 137,000 bales in
October this :yar, and 159,000 in
November last year. Mr. Ellison
further states, hat he spinners stocks
in Europe- on December 1st were
only 323,000 bales, against 560,000
bales last gar, or 237,000 bales less.
"It must, therefore, be apparent
that the American crop this year
must exceed 10,150,000 stated by
Mr. Ellison for the requirements of
this year, or the cotton famine of
next summer will be as great as it
was last year. If the, crop should
not exceed 9,500,000 bales, which
we expect, the price will have to ad-
vance to a point where consumption
will be materially checked.
"We would esteem it a personal
favor if our correspondents would
write us the facts in regard to this
year's movement of the crop, whether
it has moved more or less freely..
The amount of cotton received at the
various towns in the South so far this
season, with the amount shipped and
the amount to be received, should

rive with accuracy at the percentage
shipped to date from their respective
communities. We will take pleas-
ure in tabulating this information,
and will furnish it to our correspond-

Scdader Selk Half Interest.
Mr. II. V. R. Schrader, for many
years the sole proprietor of the City
Drug Store, and a very successful
business man, has taken a partner in
the business with him, and will, for
a time at least, take things easier and
rest up. The new partner is Mr.
V. P. Balkcom, who has been pre-
scription clerk for Mr. Schrader for
some time.
Mr. Balkcom will have charge of
the business, and will be assisted,
after the first of next month, by Mr.
Dozier, who has for a year or more
been with Wight & Bro. Mr. Balk-
com is too well and favorably known
here to do otherwise than add to the
already well established reputation
of the City Drug Store.

Relations. Between the Teacher, Pa-
rents and Pupils.
It is with regret that we notice, all
over our God blessed land, a grow-
ing friction between teachers and
pupils: also, between teachers and
patrons. So dangerous to the public
welfare, 'so menacing to the very
foundations of good government, is
this friction, that wise and sober-
minded teachers and patrons all over
our southland have determined to
look |into it, and find the cause and
the remedy.
We, who are old in the office of
teacher, suspect several reasons for
this great public danger and shall
boldly give them, regardless of fear.
because we feel it is a sacred duty
to warn coming generations of a
great evil over hanging them. First,
proper relations do not exist between
the parent and the child's teacher.
The parent should have due respect
for the teacher's mental and moral
character and then confide the child
to the teacher's fulj, free and un-

endeavoring to place around the
character ofi the puuing. child.
Make fun of the teacher-cause the
pupil to defy his power, lessen his
influence over your child, parents,
and you have, by just so much, bat-
tered the intellectual and moraf
walls which the teacher is honestly
trying to build into child character.
If the teacher does not deserve your
support and co-operation in con-
trolling your child, put that teacher
out of office through the proper
channel, the school board, but never
lessen the power and influence of the
teacher over your child; for, if you
do, the effects of such a course will
come back to you in the conduct of
your child in his future life, sitting
like a ghost in your heart and soul,
when you seeiyour child a moral and
social wreck.
A conclusion, then, of this first
cause for riotion is the- want
of due respect for the teacher
and a lack of hearty co-oper-
ation with e teacher, on the
part of the nts. But why should
such be the is the first inquiry
that arises in an honest mind. An
honest teach will answer this ques-
tion; and this rings us to our second
cause. Eit the teacher is work-
ing for salary aly, and thus not truly
qualified for office, or there is an
unjust prejue on the part of the
patron. The office of teacher is next
to that of p or in sacredness, and
superior to th pastor's in character
building, sincg it is the every day
trork of the teacher and only the oc-
casional work iof the pastor. There-
fore the teacher who is unfit for the
office, has no fight to be there. But
this office is utder the supervision of
School BoardK and their duty it is to
see that the office is filled by a fit ap-
plicant in office Hence -the patrons
should be careful to test their preju-
dice against the teacher and see if
it is not uncalled for, therefore un.
just to the teacher.
If otherwise, complaint should be
made to the Board, and not before

That evening was made memorable

The other's Favorite.
Chamberlain's Couglh Remedy is the
mother's favorite. It is pleasant and
safe for children to take, and always
cures. It is intended especially for
coughs, colds, croup and whooping
cough, and is the best medicine made for
these diseases. There is not the least
danger in giving it to children for it

my boot. But there came no patter of
feet, no unbolting of locks. The echo
sounded drearily for a moment and
then all was still
And now the fear which had already
seized me paralyzed for a moment or
two both limbs and intellect, and a
horror of which I could not grasp the
meaning turned me cold to the finger
tips. I seemed Intuitively to guess that
I was face to face with some dire ca-
lamity, and yet I could form no con-
ception of what it really was. I only
know that my inner eye gazed upon an
inner chaos, and that the sight was so
appalling that it froze every drop of
blood in my veins.- My uncle's voice
calling awoke me from the stupor, and
like one in a dream 1 moved to com-
plete the circuit of the house. But as
I passed the scullery window I noticed
that it was not locked, though it had
been fastened tightly. The catch, press-
ed against the pane, was plainly visi-
ble above the sash. I leaned against
the sill and raised the window, and in
ia voice which startled even myself, It
was so full of fear, 1 cried out: "Moth-
er, mother! Janet, Janet!" But never
a sound came back. Then a dreadful
shuddering seized me. and I felt the
nerves tingle right up my back to my
brain. Had I seen a ghost on a dark
night I could not have been smitten
with a greater dread.
Reeling back 1 made my way round
to the front of the house and tried to
cry out to my uncle, but my tongue
clave to the roof of my mouth. I felt
as though I should never speak again.
"Good heavens, Davie," he cried, see-
ing my white face, 'what is the matter
with you?' and almost before I knew
what had happened he had sprung
from the cart, opened the gate and was
holding my face up to his.
"Speak, lad!" he continued excitedly.

Realizing at once the importance of
this apparently trivial statement, he
dashed round to the back of the house.

fact thatrthis medicine gives good diges-

about me, I dashed through the kitch-

Pepping behind him. I saw that the
room was still shrouded in gloom, the
blends being closely drawn. He called
her by name. but his voice sounded
hollow and ghostly as it circled round
and round the oppressive chamber. No
sound came from the bed, no move-
ment. He turned and drew up the
blind and let q flood of light into the
dark room, and as it lit up the bed I
sawr It fall upon a tress of my mother's
hair. which drooped back over the pil-

glare too plainly the hideous placidity
of death.
"She is dead," I wailed, "she is
dead,." and. unable to look death in the
face. 1 fell upon my knees by the bed
and buried my face in my hands.
Presently my uncle touched we on
the shoulder. As I looked up at him
with blurred eyes it seemed to me that
his erstwhile jovial face was ghastly
with pain or rage.
"Do you know what has happened?"
he said. his voice cold and cutting a.
death itself. And not waiting for an
answer he at once replied to his own
query, "Your mother has been mur-
"Mprdered!" I gasped.
"Yes. murdered!" he repeated. "Look!

Look-and remember."
He drew me close to the head of the
bed. and once more I gazed upon the

down; at the pale face I could not quite

The.police were still supposed to have
the matter in hand,. and I recollect well
that-they advanced some ingenious'but
utterly erroneous theories concerning
the crime, and there their utility ended.
My uncle and I were stili convinced
that the man with the strange eyes

that lie could likewise explain the
meaning of the sign. for that the two,

what I was doing I had slipped from
him and was dashing down the path-
"What?" he cried.
"The sign! The signv"
In a moment I was through the gate
and closely scrutinizing the post, but
the sign of the egg had peen obliterat-
ed. 1I looked closer: I examinedd both
posts, but not a trace of it could I find.
And my brain, overwrought, doubted
its own knowledge. I stood vacantly
staring at the unspoiled posts. Had I
really seen the sign?
"The sign," repeated my uncle as he
came up. "What do you mean by
Then I told him what I had seen up-
on the post, and his face grew very se-
rious. It was evident that he did not
believe me the victim of an hallucina-

said. "Heaven knows what the end of

Then we discovered that the horse
and trap had disappeared. It will be
remembered that my uncle had jump-
ed out quickly and come to me, for-
getting even to take the precaution of
locking the wheel. As a consequence
the horse had wandered off.
It had been his intention to send me
off to the police station while he kept

But some weeks sipped by, and with
them went all my uncle's patience, and
at last he told me that the strain of in-
eessant watching was proving more
than he could bear.
"I am convinced," said he. "that the
police will never discover the perpetra-

Then one day. without warning, we
left the house and went to London. my
uncle taking a couple of rooms for us
In Chelsea. He then entered into com-
munication with his lawyer, and after
some little delay he succeeded in let-
ting his cottage to a couple of highly
respectable spinsters who sighed for
the felicities of a rural life. Next the
subject of school was broached, a sub-
ject not at all to my liking, but my
uncle considered that another two or
three years at least were necessary to
epmplete my education, and, feeling
that he was right. I consented. More-
over, my life of the last few months
'had made an old man of me before my

those reasons would not be difficult to

Kingston should come to the ears of
certain people. even the crowded school
might be no protection. Perhaps it was
a little superfluous caution on my un-
ele's part. but I could not quarrel with

r* "-S room. Thinking it was M
unle and delighted at this unexpected
visit. I rushed toward the door. and.
finding It open, bounded in, my hand
outstretched. But instead of encoun-
tering the well known face and figure
a gaunt stranger slowly rose from a
chair in the far end of the room. where
he had been sitting, his back to the
light. His beard was gray, his hair
gray and worn thin about the temples.
I saw that he had deep sunken eyes
and heavy brows that bristled conspic-
uously. Once a man of conspicuous
stature, his powerful shoulders now
drooped forward in a way that be-
tokened the presence of ill health. His
face was very pale. and across the
bridge of a commanding nose the skin
was drawn tightly.
Without speaking he advanced slow-
ly toward me. and I saw that his eyes,
deep set and piercing as they were,
wore a frightened, hunted expression
which filled me with considerable ap-
prehension. Nor was 1 the more re-
lieved when he threw a stealthy glance
from side to side and nodded for me to
close the door. I grew suspicious In an
Instant and Involuntarily drew back
from him. I remembered my uncle's
warnings and beheld In this man a pos-
sible enemy. He saw my Indecision
and smiled, and that act recalled me to
a sense of dignity.- T-was now a big
fellow and not to be frightened by a
"Your name is James DaTe?" he
"Yes, sir."
"But it used to be Davie Kingston?"
Startled and more suspicious than
ever, I watched him closely.
"I will not deny it." I said. "But how
do you know?"
He advanced still closer and fixed his
little piercing eyes on me.
"Look at me well." said he. "and try
to think."
I did as I was bidden, but failed to
recognize him.
"I do not know your face. I have
never seen it before."
"Not even in a dream?" he asked.
As he spoke he hid with his right
hand the lower part of his chin and
beard. I started back with a cry. for
I recognized the portrait at once.
"Yes. I know you now. You are my
"Yes." he answered, with a grim
smile; "your father come back at last."
To say that I entertained at that mo-
ment any feeling but one of utter as-
tonishment would scarcely be accurate.
It was my father no doubt, but hither-
to he had been nothing more to me
than a distant memory, a thought, a
word. and for him I had no well of
filial love waiting to bubble over. Int
deed, his looks repelled me. and it was
with an effort I held out my hand and
said, "I am very gl-:d to see you. sir."
"Thanks." he replied coldly, stretch-
ing out a long, bony claw, the chilli-
ness of which almost made pie shiver.
"I knew you would be."
This little bit of sarcasm, accompa-
nied as it was by a singularly compre-
hensive look, nonplused me somewhat.
but I managed to stammer out, "You
know of course that my ,mother is
dead?" i
A great shiver seemed to sweep him
from head to foot. and involuntarily he
cast an uneasy glance across his shoul-
"Yes; your uncle has told me."
"She was murdered on the day she
got your letter warning her against
some persons unknown."
"Yes, yes." he answered rather testi-
ly. "I have heard all about it."
"Who were those persons?" 1 asked.
"Was one of them a dark complexion-
ed man with strange, Chinese eyes?"
Again he threw that frightened look

Spasm of Charity,

[Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis.]
The Widder Jackson, relict of To'i
Jackson, had been one of us in Jeriebo
for 15 years. She managed somehow
to take care of herself until a long, lin-
gerin sickness came, and even then
she suffered for care rather than let
anybody know of her situation. It
leaked out, however, -and Jabez Thom-.
as was one of the first to hear of it.
He dropped .into the postoffice one
evening bnd told about it and then said
to the crowd::
"Feller Citizens-If Jericho has a per-
tickler strong p'ptjit is charity. No
man, woman or., ever yit called
upon her bt vainn; rhas bin our pride
and our boast that ive was a communi-


nflty,e meas a sUMg p'Int--.a'

mot for an honest, hardworking man.
and his wldder shall not appeal to us
In vain. I for one shall esteem it a
privilege to contribute to her benefit.
Let us bear from Enos Williams."
Enos rose up and said that he used
to go flshin with Tom Jackson and
that bad be known of his widder bein
hard up he would hev divided his last
turnip with her. She was a good wom-
an and a woman respected by all, and
too mucb could not be done ftr her.
As sopn as reaching home De would send
his wife over to see what could be
done, and of course his wallet was
wide open for contributions. Hezekiah
Davison wanted to say a few words
also. He begun to talk about the dis-
covery of America and the pilgrim fa-
thers, but Deacon Spooner choked him
off and got him down to the outbreak
of the civil war. He'd hev hung on
there if he hadn't bin jogged ag'in., and
It was a quarter of an hour before he
got around to say that he was awful
sorry for the Widder Jackson and want-
ed to be one of the first to prove his
big beartedness. Four or live others
had their say. and then Henry Schem-
erhorn held up a paper and said:
"As I take it, we are all of us ready
and willing to make up a little purse for
the suffering widder?"
"We are!" called everybody at once.
"'Then there's nuthin to prevent, .e-
in as Jebez Thomas was first to make
known the case, he should her the
honor of bein the first to put his name
down on this paper."
Jabez hung back. He said he was
only a bumble citizen and didn't want
to put himself forward over others.
While his heart throbbed and bled and
bobbed around, he'd give way to Dea-
con Spooner and come in second.
*Geutlemen." said the deacon as he
looked around in a lonesome way. "I
herv bin a resident of Jericho less than
20 years, and I don't want to assume
the privilege of an old pioneer. It's an

Squar Joslyn is the man to write his

The square was red in the face as be
rose up. and be didn't look a bit pleas-
ed as be said:
"While I may be the oldest resident
of Jericho, nobody has ever beard me
brag of it or thrust myself forward on

but Deacon Spooner rapped him down
and held him to the case in hand. Then
be tried to say sometbtn about the

ag'in,be took the paper and put his
name down fur 15 cents. He explain-
ed, however, that that was only a start-
er and that bhis sympathetic beart could
be depended upon to do as much as
any other heart in Jericho. The paper
went round, and men put down their
names from 15 to 50 cents. Each one
had an explanation to make. He was
only throwing out a feeler, but could be
depended upon for $100 if there was
need of it. The sum of $1.80 had bin
raised and there was a general feeliu
all through the crowd that Jericho was
doin herself proud when Lish Billings
eame saunterin in. Deacon Spooner at
once explained the case to him and
"Lish, you are known to be a big
hearted man. and we all know you will
be glad to contribute to sich a worthy
cause. Give us your name."

"I see," said Lish as he took the pa-
per, "that you hev raised $1.80 for. a
sick and distressed widder who has
lived among us for 15 years."
"We hev."
"And it's all goin to be hers?"
"Every cent of It"
/ "And you want me to make it up to
$2 and do old Jericho proud?"
S"That's it. Li-t"
"Waal. you'll hev to excuse me. The
widder don't happen to need the con-
tributions of our throbbin and isympa-
thMei hearts. She died about An hour
