idling th timo other wise, dojiendini;
oo eervnow, aou continually complain

This common prnctico eiuon the

the youotr that they must give serious
attention to out ward apiicarnnce, ihey

som of ao many parents, makes thorn
say our sou shall not be a farmer, a

Ibat is loo lmrd work, and besides
that, ht has too much brain for that ;
he mu4 study and become a doctor,
or a lawyer, a book-kocper or a clerk
Our dear daughter cannot do a
tiling in tho house, for sho has to
much to learn, besiJes sending and
writing, lirnorin (teoj;raphy, she
must learn French, Latin and Greek;
sho must draw in colo', fhe niuht
play on the piano and guitar, and ting
well, and if poiuiiblo, learn aUo limey
sewing and embroidery.
So the tons go to school, many of
tnctn until tlioy arc twenty-rour years
of age, the paronta footing the bills.
At last they get diplomas or are ad
mitted to tho bar, or eertiQontes that
they kuoiv bcok-keepiog and aLo tbt
preliminaries of merchandising.
Hut, alas, youag doctors are ut a
discount ; their chance for a remuner
ative practice is very tuoare ; and as
for lawyer there are more lawyors
than clients. Book keopera and clerk
are as plaotifnl as Canada thistles. It
is the hardest work to got a situa
tion, and if one Is obtained, the sala
ry it so small that only a bare living
can be obtained, and if not by some
lucky chance a good footing is ob
tainod, that clerk or book-keeper can
only eipeot to lead a life ot poverty
to tbe end of bis days
Tb daughter is also full grown,
ber eyes hare an unusual bright lus
tre, but her intellectual face is very
pale, aad she sootns to suffer from a
very weak cheat; liar dross is fault
less, her manner graceful, her conver

French, Italiuo and Groek readily, and
plays delightfully on the piuoo. It is

Quick as lightning the husband laid
down tho culinnries, cluspod his hands
together and lifted his tearful ryes
heavenward, and prnyod from tho in
most recedes of his h 'art :
'I fliaok Theo, Heavenly 1'athor,

week, wages, board, and what she
wastes, at least six dollars that would
be nearly ono-third of your weekly
earuings Thank God, I can do with
out a servant u.irl, snd euvt thut much
to my darling husband.'
Thtre is a pi.' ting. kis between
which two bourts are forever blended
ioto ono.
Years pass away, and six pledges of
love now sit tt the dining tuolo, each
rosy, and the very picture of bealtb,
and tho happy mother shows no signs
of futigut. As she serves the noon
meal tbe father cives tbt sign, tbo
children clasp their hands and follow
in tho prayer of tbeir parents.
'Husband yoa do not eat as heart
ily as usual, and seem Inst in thought ;
what ta ttfo matter? You never had
aoy secrets whlob I could not share.'
'i os,' answered tbe husband, 'I
have something on my mind. My
employers are iu a critical condition.
All the partners lived high, drew too
uiuoh from the business, and now thsy
are forced to sell out Tbe low thou
sand dollars that I bavo laid up, are

bo desirable, snd betides that, I could,
by-aod-by, take my boya in business,
learn them tha trade, aod tbis would
be excellent in the future.' .
'Father will let vou have tbe money.
They have lovltod us several times to

There was n gey time at the old
folks', when tho daughter with herrs
emplnry husband, end their well
drought np children arrive!. The
Christum Tret was; in splendid trim,
and grundfslhcr jtimed about like a

I leek, who is said to havo murdered
Mr. anil Mrs. Oooue.on l uvonlo Island
I wo mouths ago. Heck was in Austin
(Miss.) juil, where be hnd been placed
by the hlienff of Tunica county, who
had brought him from Indiana a few
duysugo. On Wednesday morning a
large number nf men gathered around
tho jail in Austin, took tho prisoner
out by force, brought him dowu to the
river's edgo, placed hint in a ski If, nnd
rowed hiiu up tho river tu Favorite
Island, and hangod him to a treoovur
the spot wliero tho nucd tlondcs fell
beneath tho murderer's axe somo two
months before. A proper investiga
tion would have accomplished nil this
if tha man was guilty. Whco will
peoplo learn to havo confidence in nnd
.respect for the law? Another ac
count, from what appears to bs a reli
able source, say that there was uo
lynching, properly so called, but that
the uieu took lieck out of jail, manned
a fleet of skill's, as a sort of guard,
aud the prisoner was rowed scrosi the
river by tho wuoing light of Iho moco
oo Weil ties lay morning about three
o'clock, to a suad-bar on the Arkansas
Shore, and there, uuder the long shad
ows of the trees, the crowd gathered
around t'ueir victim and feasted their
druokoi eyes upon bis pallid lace, trem
bling lips and tottering limbs, while
our-essnd blasphemies disturbed the
quietude or t lie uionmg nir. As tho
first gray stroaks of dawn shot upwurJ
from the eastern sky, a grave was
scooped out of tho sand by n lot of men
who sppoaroi at that moment, more
liko demons thai) human beings.
Minding tho wretch's Linda and feel
together, thoy ibrew him luto tho bole.
Two or throo of the stoutest alood
upon bis body while tho hole was being
filled up, lifting thoir feet every now
and thon to beep ou a lovol wilb the
rising atiid. As the aand went in
tho'io men actually daooed upon the
smothering victim beneath, and the
whole crowi broke out iu so unearthly
son:. At loueth, when tbe nolo was
IU led up and heaped over, a "stag
dance" was improvised, and the twenty
vigalaotera carried oo the revel until
tho sua rose above the horizon, wbou
they hurried to thoir skiffs and disap
peared u p and down tn river iloog the
Mississippi shore.
Sato Coun Now is tbe time for
farmers to gather their seed corn for
next year. If every farmer would go
into his field, sod, selecting the best
ears, gather enough fur next year's
seed aud place it where it would get
thoroughly dry belore freesioir weath
or, there would be no trouble about

Hob. you uro about leaving homo

remember that imluniy utui pci'seve

will do to till up
, with, like small trumps, but you must
i have the bowers t t back I hem, or tliey
ain't worth shucks, if luck is ciu
you pretty strong, don't cry aud look
ike a sick chicken ou a rainy day, bill
. hold up your hand uud make believe
'you are tlunh of trumps, nud they won 'i
p!ay so hard aiu you. I've lived
and travels 1 around somo, lloh, and
and I'vo found out that as soon us folks
thought you bell a weak hand, they'd
all buck o,'io you strong. So when
yoii'ro sort'r weak, keep a bold look
"but play cautious ; besati.sSel wilh a
point. Many s tho haaJ 1 vo seen em
cuahrs cause they played for too much.
Keep your eyes wall skinned, Hob ;
Jon't let them nig you ; recollect the
game lays as much with tho bead ns
with the hands. Ho tempera's, nover
get drunk, for then, no mutter how
good your hand, you won't know how
to play it; bulb bowers and tho see
wou'l save you ; for there's certain to
be a "miss deul" or something wrong.
Aod another thiur', Hb, ihi was
spokeu in a low tone), d u't go too
much on the woiiun ; queens is kinder
poor cards, tho more you have of them
tho worso for you ; you might have
three and nary a trump. I don't bay
discard 'em all; if you get boid of one
tliut is trump ll a all good, and there's
sartin to be one oot of four. And,
Lbovo all, Hob, be honerH ; never take
a roan's trick wol dou't belong to you,
ner slip cards or uig, tor then you ran t
look your man in tlia !aeo, and wheu
thni's tho case them's no fun in the
gumo; it's u regular -'cut throat." So,
now, liob, farewell ; remember what
I tell you, aud you'd be sure to win,
and if you don't, it serves you I'Uht it
you get "skunko I.''
Thb SeCKET or it. An old farmer
being asked why his boys stayeJ at
home whoa others did not, replied
that it was owing to the fact that be
always tried to make home pleasant
to them, lie luroisueu them Willi
useful and attractive reading ; and
when night comes, and tho day's labor
is ended, instead of running witb other
boys to the railway station tad adjoin
ing towns, they gather around the
great lamp, and becomo absorbed iu
their books aod papers. Iis boys were
still st homo when the eldest boy was
twenty-one, while (hose who were
furnished with no rtading at homo
sought city life and city dissipation as
soon as they wero teveottee cr eighteeo.
