gcntlo humor of which no ono supposed

nf exercises nnd glvo n few brief extracts
from tlio compositions of tho graduates.
What to select is difficult, for nil is worthy
of publication, Tho extracts here given
nro different from thoso published in tlio
other papers of tho county. Miss Mclllck
hnd for her subject, "Tlio Crown after
the Victory" i "Perhaps thero is no pros
pect, which imagination can present, so
alluring to tho mind of n young man ns
public life. The mcro fnct of being n
theme of public interest seems to bo tlic
greatest boon for which somo of tho men
to-day arc striving. Wc, In our short ex
perience, can already sco that places and
greatness, though fair without, aro full of
temptation within. Often on election day
when I sco men collecting together, all ex-
cited, I have asked myself what Is there in
olllco for which men nro thus so eagerly
striving ? What is that highest price of
contention in the pursuit of which happi
ness Is accounted nothing und merit is
pitted ngalnst hypocrisy nnd intrigue ? Is
it power ? Is this tho crown for which
they nro striving ? Wo must
fight If wo would reign. Wo must win tho
crown wo would wear and just hero let
us ask what crown nro we striving for ?
Lot us strive not so much for power as for
usefulness. lOnr times demand this. To
day llttlo occupies general attention Mint
docs not return somo answer to tho ones
lion, 'Of What Uso Is It?' What advan
tage arises from It? -Tho wild visions con
jurcd up by tho heated Imagination of
other times nro all viewed through this
medium nnd stripped of nil their gaudy
nnd deceptive colors and nro stamped only
with that value to which their usefulness
entitled them. The lanco of chivalry
rusts In obscurity, while the plow.sharc Is
bright with honorable use."
Miss Stewart had for her subject, "Silent
Forces." "Of love as a silent force," sho
said, "perhaps the greatest of all silent
forces is tlio forco of love. Where all cf.
forts accompanied by tho usual din of hu-
innn undertakings have failed, love has
most gloriously conquered. Tho lovo of n
mother for her child Impels her to endure
the greatest suffering, misery and danger
for that child. There is perhaps no power
besides lovo that could do this. Napoleon
with his army overran nil of Europe llko a
tornado, visiting all places with destruction
nnd death. Kings and potentates were do
throned nnd their governments overturned.
Alexander conquered tho world with the
clasli of arms : Csesar destroyed a million
lives in his conquests their names live
only in history, their empires wcro of short
duration. Christ, the humble son of tho
humble carpenter of Nazareth, came upon
tho earth to conquer with love. His king.
dom now includes nil of the civilized
world, and that lovo which ho lias lm
planted in tlio bosom of his followers Is
reaching out, civilizing aud bringing into
his kingdom the deluded and degraded
heathen of every land. This is truly a
great victory for love." Sho spoko of tho
force of literary productions : "Tho fruits
of tho reformation wcro nourished by tho
printing press. That strnngo superstition.
that dark nnd impenetrable ignorance of
the iniddlo ngos was swept away by the
printing press. All the armies of the world
could not have clfccted these results. A
few great papers in this country shape tho
mind and feeling of this country in relig
ion, politics and law. In tho heated and
noisy discussions on Slavery nothing elso
produced tho effect of Uncle Tom's Cabin
Tho pen i3 truly 'mightier than the sword.'
The force of tho latter can bo of only short
duration, while the victories won by tho
pen are abiding. The strength of Napo-
loon's army was in Napoleon, but the
strength of Uncle Tom's Cabin is within
Mr. Hamilton, tho valedictorian of his
class, had for his subject, "Tho Ministry
ofTenrs": "What Is a tear? The grand
est definition I have ever heard or read is
by that prlnco ot American preachers, Dr,
Talmago i ho says : 'A chemist will tell
you that it is made up of salt and limo and
other component parts ; but ho misses the
chtcf ingredients the r.cld ot a soured lite,
tho vipcran sting ot a bitter memory, tho
fragments of a broken heart. I will tell
you what a tear is ; It is agony In solution.
But If you still nsk what a tear is, my an
swer is, it Is the overflowing of a heart
that's full, tho gurgling forth of feelings
that cannot bo restrained or controlled. It
Is griof and sorrow rolling down tho
cheeks in liquid form, tlio breaking
heart standing in tlio eyes in briny
drops, tho hopo and happiness o: a
wrecked or blasted Hfo poured forth, aye.
more tho tribute to tho dead." Ot tears
ot sorrow ho spoko as "tears that burn
their way down tlio cheeks and leave
traces that cannot bo blotted out, tears
that bring on prematuro old age. Tears,
each ono a drop of lifo mood ; each ono a
fragment of a broken heart." In closing
ho said : "But wo ourselves, my class
mutes, go fortli now in different paths ;
each ot us to fight our own battles ; each
of us to conquer or sutler defeat as wo
ourselves deserve. Each ono must descrvo
his own fate, bo that graud and noble or bo
Mint base. Let us then keep bravo hearts,
and let us bo always armed and ready for
tho conflict, remembering that 'ho con
quers who endures.' Wo met ns strangers,
but wo part as friends, part with tho hopo
to meet again ; If not on earth, in Heaven

paying for it a prico ten per cent, higher
than it will bring in market to-day. To
clinch tho bargain, a portion of tho pur
chase money was paid down, and a re
coipt taken therefor. Since theso tran
sactions nothing has been heard of the to.
bacco merchant. Thoso who sold him
their tobacco are now exercised over his
non-appearance, aud nro getting suspicious
that possibly in signing tho receipt they

party holding it with such figures as lie
might surmise the obligee would bo able to

four tlio perpetration of such a swindle on
them, proves how loosely many members
of our farming community do busluess.
Many of them sign papers without reading
them, a most reprehensible practice, and
ono that has often proved a great loss to
individuals. No person, let him bo a far
mcr or otherwise, should sign any paper or
manuscript, not even a petition, without
reading and critically examining it, and if
he fails to thoroughly understand its im
port or object, he should withhold his sig
nature until he docs. By observing this
rulo it would prevent many heart-bum

necessary in these days when business
morality is at a discount and thousands
