IICW TO PROSPER.
MW .. nv l 1< !: over this County
and s. e bow it has improved siuce
10-ti, v.e rtj-'ico i:i the great changes
for liie 1 " - i". \\ her v.. call to mind
how very poor we all wi re at that
time ami how little the farmers pro
<i;c <■. nuoe than thoy consumed, and
mil " • quantities of produce now
aum d , it to market, we cannot
coui" tin- general prosperity of the
' uitly. For this is measured, not

l ' ... .. 11. I . ii'.l V. t.'Uii U
so much as thrill that indicates pros
p rity. lmproveim nt—progress—
, going ahead-—th se are the only
i proofs of real thrift.
But while the County in general, j
'and a large portion of the people,
are prospering as fast, probably as is
good for either, there are quite a nura-
Isor iu this County, as in every other,
that are not prosperous; who think
the times are hard and that every
thing i> working against them.
It is to these we desire to come
with vvoidsoft neouragement. Every
person in tins County in the posses
sion of moderate health, can prosper
i it' tliev so determine. True, it will
|
cost something. It will cost self-do- i
nial and industry and perseverance, j
That is all. No person can prosper |
who does not make it an unalterable
rule to keep their expenses below
their receipts. Having engrafted
this rule on the habits of your life, :
abundant prosperity is from that mo- j
mont insured.
We do not mean that people should |
never run in debt. So far from it we !
think the judicious purchase of prop-;
city even on credit is frequently the j
wise-1 thing to do. It is the running !
in debt f-r something that is used up !
without producing more; that bars j
the p>u i t > prosperity, and this habi'
must he overcome or you will neveri
g out of financial troubles. It is J
not so unpleasant t • deny oneself)
-ome of the comforts of life as to be
unable to p i v when a-ked for the debt
made to procure them.
When you have made it a'rule to
keep your expenses below your re-)
ci iots veil have learned the road to I
pin.-qieruy. "Bett- r is a diy morse! :
and quieiue-s therewith than a house I
full of' good things purchased on I
credit, with strife when the debt be-!
conn : due.
Bi SIXES* prospects are rapidly im
proving throughout the entire conn
try. Its elfects are sen in this
\icinity by the appearance among us
of men from the railroads wanting to
purchase oats and other farm pro
ducts. Oats are now as quick sale
at forty cents per bushel as they w ere (
two weeks ago at thirty-five; within j
tie- next two weeks they will probab- j
I v bring forty five.
The outlook is very encouraging. >
I.;. >r of all kinds will undoubtedly j
b 1 well r* warded during the year j
I'm!; and when labor is properly |
rewarded the country prospers.
Tn t; annnr 1 week <>f prayer has been
supplemented i.i this place by two
weeks more of well attended, earnest
meetings, almost every evening being
occupied. Every Monday evening
there has been a union praver meet
ii g at tlie Presbyterian Church, oth
: er < venings at the other churches and
(>c asional'iy separate meetings have
been held; every church being light
ed and people hurrying through the
greets to one or another of them,
in the M. E. Church beside the usual
meetings on Sunday and Thursday
evenings, there have been held pub
ic or general class meetings on Sat
' urday evenings for many weeks and
many seem deeply interested.
LONPON, JAN. 2Fl. —lntelligence
as jimt been received here of the
! h atli of l)r. Livingstone in the in
terior of Africa. He died of dysen
tery while traveling from Lake I Jem j
be to Unyanyembe. His body has
I I), en embalmed and is being conveyed
; to England byway ot Zanzibar.
WE UKAKD a sermon lately that
was a very earnest showing of the
i correspondence between natural and
spiritual things—that it was a great
; mistake to arraign science against
religion or nature against sacred his
tory. Of course with our limited
vision we could not see in many eas
es how close the analogy may be, but
we see enough to know that it is per
fect in many points and from these
we may infer that one great law runs I
through the whole of created life,
from dust to angelhood; the law of j
culture and preservation. That faith •
can be and should be cultivated by '
use and exercise as the muscles of!
: our arms are. i hat it is as idle to j
| say we cannot have faitli, when we
; have never tried, as to say there is
no strength in our limbs, when we j
have never tried them—when they
are tlabby and weak for want of use.
We need a whole life of active,
;
energetic exercise—even sometimes;
to the utmost point of our strength !
in ordt r to grow physically strong, i
and the moral, the spiritual nature;
nci ! s it just as much.
The minister pointed out other
coirespondents s. other fallacies of,
excuse for tin* want of moral power,
and we wish there bad been hundreds
iii.s oi.U ot lens there to hear it.
THE cry of the miserable—the
most sorely atllictel comes up to the
legislature an 1 throng it to the whole
I people, by the report of the Board of
Public Charities.
The Board make a strong appeal
for the establishment of more abund
ant and suitable provision for the
Confinement, maintenance and cura
tive treatment of the insane; their
: removal from prisons and poor
! houses, and present a very painful
picture of the suffering and miseries
unnecessarily endured by these poor
people. The gentlemen who consti
tute this Board have evidently been
industrious and thorough in their
j work. They say, as they did last
| year:
"We are prepared, upon a call of
either branch of the Legislature, to
report upon the whole subject, stat
ing the numbers and condition of
| this class, how they are now circum
. stanced, what proportion are probab-
I iy chronic, and what curable cases,
| what additional accommodations are
| needed, and, if required a scheme for
realizing the demand which is made
upon the State for the complete ful
• aliment of this imperative duty."
There are in this report statements
made by the wardens of both the
state p nitentiaries relating to insane
persons in their care who ought to
be removed to asylnmns and put
under the supervision of skilful phy- j
sicians capable of giving them the
necessary treatment for the cure.
A ecordiiig to the report of this board
! there i- stiil a great deal to be done
' and imperatively needed, to amelior- ;
ate tlie condition ot* these sutferers '
•and the legislature is urged to make
!; immediate additional provision for
them. This is a matter in which the
; government may be libera! with the
, money of the people and feel sure '
| that the people will cheerfully and j
j gladly ac-pii see, for t'.l-> is a need !
j and a duty felt by every person if
i not as a charity tin n from a sense of
(justice to the insane themselves and '
'to the public at large. Lew neigh-
I borhoods bur fee! the m cd of protce-1
| tion from one or uioie of their own ,
1 insane. \ cry few are tiiere who have )
' not a sorrowing sympathy v. it!i some
' of this cl.iss, for vvliose maiutcn nee, j
; comfort nod cure they won! 1 be glad ■
! to contribute.
LAW AKD CAIL'S.
We observe that an attempt is m!
j ready Iwing imuie to repeal the Lo- j
cal Option law, and vve it a: n tiiat in I
i :liis city petitions arc being circul it- j
ed and signed. We expected this (
and it would no doubt surprise many j
to see some of the names on these I
petitions. We presume the effort to I
repeal this law is placed upon the i
ground that it has not prevented the j
sale of liquor and drunkenness en
tirely. The most sanguine friend |
and advocate did not expect that it i
would. As long as we have sinners j
upon earth there will be law-breakers, j
But this is no reason why the laws
prohibiting crime should be repealed.
We have law- against stealing, rob
bing, assaults, profanity, adultery
and murder, but the-e laws do not
prevent the commission of these
crimes. They are to a very great
extent curbed and held in check h\ |
thcui and it will not answer the ends ,
of human society to say, that because j
these laws do not entirely prevent j
the crimes we hav* enumerated, they j
should therefore be repealed. Xeith-i
er wib it be good reasoning to say ;
that because liquor takes strong hold i
upon the appitiic of man, that, there- j
fore, tiiere is no use in enacting laws j
to control this i.ppetite. Such urgu- j
! meats are so weak that the mere
! menti'-n of them refutes their fotee. f
i It might be said with as much pro-'
; priety, that the law prohibiting mur
der should be repealed IK CUU-C mur- 1
derers are being constantly per pe
lt a ted. We confess it would be quite •
as consistent to repeal a law which,
if enforced, as it should lie, v ill do'
more to prevent that crime than the I
law that prescribes the penalty
against it.
Disguise it as you may. Local Op
tion has done much good in our city j
and county. There is le>s liquor sold ■
than there was before its adoption
and many of the vile dens have been
closed and the fountains of iniquity,
that lead to ruin, have been diied up.
; That the law is violated with inqumi
| iy by many is true; so are the other
| laws against crime—but this is not
the fault of the law; the biaiue rests
| mostly with those whose duty it is'
jto execute it. Let the Local Option
! law remain on the statute book throe
(years, as it is intended it should,
j and be properly enforced, it will we,
believe, work incalculable good.
I How any man can put his hand to a
pen to write his name to a petition to
repeal a law that is intended to pre
vent the greatest curse upon earth,
and especially if he is the head of a
family and then attempt to justify
his act before Hod or m: n, is ihiiicuit
to reconcile with the gel ten rule of
life.—ll'. B. Bulletin.
j • "BEAUTIFUL serving is aftei all
the very soul of living," ai<i one in
a story. Beautiful serving, which
means, does it not? faithful and true
service, not only willing but glad;
not only watchful but tender, not
only patient, untiring but loving ser
vice; the humblest, the lowest, the t
most disagreeable, made joyful and
beautiful by love; given to (od
through llis suffering creatures—
such "is the very soul of living.''
Another writer, in another storv
too, says "The lack of service is the
; ruin of humanity." It i* not educa
tion that unfits for service, but the
want of it. You cannot have perfect
service except from a lady.'' This
was written in an old world book,
but is perhaps more needed here
; where the idea that one man is just
as good as another, shoots tint into
\ o
!'and a great deal better,' always siqe
posiug "one man" to be 1 and "an
other" you.
For many—the uneducated, the
nnrefined—are apt to forget and it is
• the tendency of our country and age
to lead them to forget, that the true
; democratic principle, like everything
else works both ways, that if I uin as
good as everybody, then anybody is
as good as I; that if some one holds
uiy horse or blacks my boots, it is
i my duty to do the same or equally
humble service for him or for an
other. And the greater the natural
'gifts or carefully acquired training
any one may enjoy, the greater—
which means the lowlier, the more
loving and humble service, he should
sci k to do for those around him.
"Somebody t) wait on me," is a
[ great need of many people; espeeial
: !y those who are sick or otherwise
prevented troni doing for themselves,
but some body to wait on is an uni
versal need and the reciprocal scr
j vice should be a strife on each side,
!to excel. Then there be " beau li
ful serving," and the menial service
will 110 more be feared or shunned for
no service will be menial.
LECTURES.
Next Tuesday evening, the 13th
: in st., Hon. 11. \\ . Williams is to ue
iiver the sixth lecture of the free
course at the Court House, on the
.on the subject of Trial by Jury. It
i is one excellence of litis home course
that it enables our most studious and
Ihouguiful citizens to discus those
, questions Willi Widen they are most
| iaimiiar, and give the pubiic the helic
al of ine most tlioroitgu individual'
| research, t'ne thoughts ola lawyer
and a judge on tue suhjeut of trial in
jury eaii hardly laii to prow botn in
l ill uctive ami interesting to the whole
i community, for the theme is one
j wi.ieh is liable to come home, sooner
! -T L I t, to tue b WIN an I pocket ol
. eveiy Citizen. The origin ami growth
j ol Lais, mode ol settling disputes by
; it petit juiy ; the lb-O'.vlie.i and prac
; tical workings of tiie system; the
j utility of the grand jury—these are
i ail questions in which every citizens
| is practically and may become paiii
: 1 Hily interested. it is to be hoped
j tue house wdl be lilied at an early
j uour next Tuesday evening, win.il
! they will be discussed.
The above is taken from the Tioga
I Agitator , and reminds LIS pleasantly
i ;
oi a winter, many years ago when
we, too, had a course of "home
course" of lectures. We have no
doubt the people of Wcilsborough
are both interested and profited; per
haps quite as much as they would be
i with most lectures from afar and for
. more so than they would be with
many.
Our course, though it was when
j our County was younger and we were
j more isolated from the world outside
| than we are now, was lilleo during
! the whale 'lecture season' by the pro
\ fessional men of Coudersjiort and vi
! cini .y ; and very creditably' and hand
| soinely lilted, it is surprising how
| much a person may know in the di
; rection in which he cultivates his
faculties that is new and valuable to
j others. We have heard many speak
j of that series of lectures with great
| interest and stro g desire to have
similar ones again.
We flo not see why we should go
without lectures when we have gen
tlemen so capable who would be
benefitting themselves as well as the
public, by delivering them.
