lrize Sehool Composition.
"The horse has 4 legs one on
each corner," was the composition of
a schoolboy. But a Pennsylvania boy
has capped the climax with the fol
lowing on "The Mule."
"The mule has four legs two in
front, and two behind ; but if a mule
ever kicks you, you'll think he had
forty, though in moat cases you
ain't well enough to think after he
let's his legs fly." Atlanta Consti-

and get a good many ideas from

shary and really clever things in a
newspaper composing room in a
moment of relaxation than you can
in a social club, especially if it is a
club of high degree.
The ranks of newspaper writers
are still recruited in a considerable
degree from the composing room.
Editors are well aware how valuable
a ood printer's habits of readiness,
close scrutiny and accuracy in small
things are in a reporter or desk
editor ; other things being equal, it
is always a recommendation to an
applicant for a newspaper position
to be a practical printer. Every
body knows that a great lot of jours
nalists and authors have begun their
career at the printer's case. All
these things have helped the pres

How many of our people reiliz?
how much building is oing on in
this city and how mary know that
there is not enough dwelling house j
for the demand ? There are four
houses being built at the Cabarrus
mills ; there are five new ones going
up at Forest Hill ; there will be
several built at the new roller mill ;
there will be twenty new ones built
at the Cannon mills ; there will be
eighteen built at the Buffalo Thread
mill, besides inany new ones under
course of construction in the heart
of the city. In all there are or will
be fifty houses built within the
next few months. At an average of
four to a family, the city's popular
tion will be increa33d by 200. And
thus we prosper.
