Our boys know a great deal, re
marks an exchange, but tne majority
grow to manhood without learning
to do anything well enough to earn
their own living. Skilled labor,
whether of the hands or head is al
ways in demand. Too many boys,
with no aptitude or. training, drift
into places which God never meant
them to occupy, and dissatisfaction
to themselves and their employers
is an inevitable result. Peter the
Great left the throne that he might
learn how to build a ship and ho
learned thoroughly from stem to
stern, from hull to mast. - The Jews,
wise in their day and generation,
gave-to every boy, of whatever sta
tion or wealth a trade. Many a college-bred
boy needs to leave the
throne of his idenl position and
learn tho things with which every
day must deal. Or, rather it would
be better with us if each boy learned
ay trade before he went to college.
How many college boys can tell what
kind of timber will bear the greatest
strain or will last the longest under
water. How many know how steel
is made or even pig iron? Do all
know lime-stone from sand-stone, or
manganese from iron? Somebody
says a surveyor's mark , never gets
higher from the ground on a tree.
Can your college brothers tell you
why so, quickiy? Pittsburg Dispatch.

who carried tho muskets, or mannud the
guns, and that justice has never been done
them. Of course there will be many to
dispute my claim but the many may talk,
or write on forever, and when they have
finished their efforts I shall still be calmly
enjoying the truthfulness of my position
and rejoicing that my lot was cast with
the brave and noble "privates' of North
Carolina who raised the name of their
State from "grand" to "sublimest of them
I did not write the above to win the
smiles of the private soldier, oi to invite
the irown of the officer. I wrote it because
I believe it to be true and because I wanted
to relate as evidence of my position, an act
of heroism by a North Carolina soldier
which should be read by every child of
the State. Yes, read, studied, remembered
and cherished with a devotion as sincere
and lasting as the deed he performed was
courageous and sublime.
On the day the Crater was blown up, in
1864, iu front of Petersburg, Va., Capt.
Johnston's company, (of Washington
county, N. C.) was temporarily under com
mand of Lt. M. A. Cotten, of Hamilton,
N.C., and there were only seven men fit
for duty. The shelling of our lines at that
time was terriffic, and during its terror an
eight -inch mortar-shell fell in the midst of
these seven privates. The fuse was burn
ing and every second Reemed au hour.
There was but one of two things to do
permit the shell to explode or throw it
over the works. Lt. Cotten realized the
danger and ordered W. J. Ausbon to throw
it over the works and, without an instant
of hesitation, that brave and gallant soldier
obeyed the order.
He was a private, and his name and lame
should be an inspiration to future genera
tions for his courage was, and will always
be, a more glorious and lasting heritage to
his friends and posterity than any com
mission his State or government could
have given him.
This brave, this heroic soldier was never
appreciated, as he should have been, in
life, but it is hoped that from his humble
mound there will ever arise a reminder
that in life only can we enjoy the deeds
and words of our fellow men which make
existence on earth precious and sweet, and
hope for eternal life beautiful beyond ex
