THE ROANOKE NEWS, THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 1893. ONE SAUDAY. 000 saJ d:iy wboo the sun'it goU crown Jowollod tho (lesolato, tircamy west, 1 came with a burduD and laid it down Under the lilirs and leaves to rest; And, weeping, I left it and went my way With tlift’rwilij!ht whispeiiog; “God knows best!" One Sh eet day—it was long ago, And thorny the paths my foet have pressed Since with tears and kisses I laid it low, Soul ot' my soul and life of my breast! But kneeling now iu the dark to pray, Theto comes with n song from the Huriicss west The siioie sweet voice that I heard that day— TIii'TwDi^iht whispering: “God knows besl! ” OOOI> THINJ8 TO KNOW, Japan has a god *10 feet in height. The total attendance at the Centennial £xposition was *.),'J10,966. Among the exhibits at Chicago is a lump of salt weighing 30,000, The average man iu the I'uited States spends annually for clothing. A hustler in Kentucky runs a news paper, R hotel, a posioffice and a line of steauiboats. Michigan produces annually 15,000 tons of peiipermint. A bridge that is to be built at St, Pe tersburg will cost $15,000,000. The engines in the machinery building at the Fair are supplied with steam by thirty boilers. In New York the average number of I'crson.'i to a dwelling is 18s, Tho rice crop of the United Slates is reported to be sixty per cent, greater than any previous one. There are mare dogs in proportion to iuhabitants in Ireland than in any other country. Each adult inha'es a gallon of air a minute, and consumes thirty ounces of oxygen a day. It look 80,000 men seven years to erect King Solomon's temple. The great twenty-one story 'I asonic templo in Chi cago, which is nearly three times the height of King Suliuaon's, was run up in two years by less than 1,000 men. EDITING A NEWSPAPER.

If it contains many advertisements sub scribers complain that they take up too much space. If there is a lack of adveitising it is unpopular and the people won’t have it. If we attend church legularly they say we go for elTcct. If we stay away from church they say we arc monstrously heathenish. If ne accept an invitation to a wedding they say we were invited to “write it up," If we go to the opera house they say wo go on free tickets. If wo are seen on the street too often they say we neglect i.ur business. If we avoid going upon the street thi'y ,«iy we don't liusile around after news. If we reject a long communication its author g»ts furiously enraged and discontinues hi# paper. If we publish lengthy communications our readers say we lack' discretion and put in every thing to “fill up." If we neglect to decurate our office VV’ashington's birthday they say we lack enterprise and that there is not a drop of patriotic blood in our degenerate carcas ses. If we swell out in a new suit of clothes and celebrate groundhog day they say we got our clothes in payment for adver tising and that we are by far too foppish. If, in our frailty, we sometimes perpe trate a joke or make a stagger at a poor little pun, they say we are exceedingly light and won’t do. If wo omit jokes they say we are poor miserable fossils. If we are married they they say it is a pitty for our wives. If we are not married they say it is because we are too homely to get a wife. If we publish a man who has brought disgrace upon his family, the friends of the family never forget us, If we, out of goodness of heart, decline to say anything on the subject the man's enemies are disappointed, and we are branded as white-livered cowards. We arc able to stand these raps and many more, and are always ready to re ceive visitors whether accompanied by a dog or not. Of course we do not claim there is any work to running a newspaper; every one knows it is a snap. A Million Friends. A friend in need is a friend indeed; and not less than one million people have found just such a friend in Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, coughs, and colds.—If you have never used this great cough medicine, one trial will convince you that it has wonderful cura tive powers in all diseases of throat, chest and lungs. Each bottle is guaranteed to do all that is claimed or money will be refunded. Trial bottle free at Wm, Cohen’s drug store. Large bottles .50c, and 81 00. ADVE11T18EMENTS.
