Two years ago I bought a very light two
hor Piedmont wagon of the Agent, Jno.
A. Boyden; have lised it near'y all the time
since, have tried it severely in hauling saw
logs and other heavy loads, and have not
hsd to pay one cent for repairs. I look
upon the Piedmont wagon as the best Thim
ble Skein wagon made in the United States.
The. timber used hi them is-most excellent
and thoroughly well seasoned.

am alone, unfentrfered chick
Of artificial hatching:
A pilgrim in a desert wild,
By happier mothered chicks reviled,
From ail relationships exiled, v '
To do my own lone hutching.
Fair Science smiled upon my birth
One raw and gust v morning.
And now the sounds of barnyard mirth
To .lonely me have little worth;
L am alone in all the earth
An orphan without homing.
Seek I my mother? I would find
A heartless personator;
A thing brass-hided, man designed,
With steampipe arteries interrained,
And pulseless cotton batting lined
A patent iucubator.
Cot-i'as planted as an experiment
in theCarolinas as early as 1621; but
cotton growing as an industry, was not
engaged in to any extent until after
the Revolutionary war.
Recent delicate scientific experiments
have discovered the fact that the sur
face of the land is never absolutely at
rest for more than thirty hours , at
a time. Thus those great earth
quakes which make epochs in history
are merely extreme cases of forces that
seldom sleep.
A newspaper in Illinois recently
brought suit against forty-three men
who would not pay their subscription,
and obtained judgment in each for full
amount of the claim. Of these, twenty
eight men made affidavits that they
owned no more property than the law
allowed them, thus preventing attach
ment. Then they, under the decision
of the Supreme Court, were arrested
for petty larceny and bound over in
the sum of $300 each. All but six
gave bonds, while six went to jail. It
makes no difference to what part of
the continent the paper goes, a bill
sent to the Postmaster, Justice of the
Peace oany United States officer can
be collected.
"Bermuda Grass," said Mr. A.
Graves, of Caswell, in a speech before
the State Farmers' Institute, Oct. 19,
' is one of the greatest grasses in the
State; it makes the best hay ot any
grass within my knowledge. It is true
if you pasture the land and pack it
down for a fewyears, it will stall a
yoke of oxen to pnll a common old
fashioned coulter through, because it is
so closely packed. All stock is fonder
of it than arty other grass. My ex
perience is, it is a good improver of
land." Mr. Graves went on to say,
that if yon plant a field in corn where
this grass is, you are sure to find the
largest and best corn where the grciFS
is thickest. It seems to open the hind,
and where it is highest the corn stands
a severe drought better than where it
is thiner. Some say you can't kill it.
You cannot by ploughing it under,
but bring it to the surface by shallow
ploughing and harrowing, and )ou
may.
A beautiful paragraph clipped from
an old paper, the (Salisbury) "''Union
Banner;' of May 1, 1806.
Don't Despond.
If friends have deserted you, will
fretting reconcile them ? Are vou un
successful in business, will fretting in
crease your income ? Did any man
ever fret ten dollars into his pocket ?
If you are in debt and can't pay, be
prudent; but above ail keep cool. A
long face is not attractive. A hung
down head and slouching gait are not
elegant. Look on the" bright side. If
there is no bright side to your circum
stances, imagine one, and keep your eye
on it. Cheerfulness is not as expensive
as melancholy.
What if the war has destroyed your
property, killed your father, brother,
son or husband ? Remember God
rules the universe, and nothing hap
pens by chance; and though clouds
and darkness veil His providence, yet
justice and judgment are the basis of
His throne. Try -to retrieve your lost
fortune. Let the sweet prospects of
doing good and ameliorating the sad
I condition of the afflicted and unfortu
nate around you, be to you as dear as
the loved ones whose absence you
mourn. Realize the great fact, which
thousands ignore, that uall things are
of God." Then you shall be happy in
the midst of adversity, and the lamp of
holy truth shall flash its heavenly light
across the gloom of death.
Up again, brother ! heed not a fall !
Rough is the highway, slips come to all ?
Rise to your feet, theu ! have a good
heart,
Now, looking forward, make a fresh
start.
Up, then, and onward; never despair,
Morn may be cloudy, noon may be fair.

As there has been a great deal said
about marriages, I thought that I
would say a few words. It is not my
intention to advise against marriage,
I nor to draw the line too close as to the
don't marry class, but simply to hit at
the errors of some people who match
feadly on so long a contract.
Tiie "yes or no" question is the vital
one for all young people to answer too
soon, otherswait too long, others nev
er reach such a climax of happiness as
to be invited by an' eligible partner.
The genius of selection is the rarest of
faculties.
The tale that I now relate,
This lesson seems. to cany;
Choose not alone a proper mate,
But proper time to iharry.
Do not marry for beauty alone.
Very few have a supply that will last
a full dozen years in a marriW life
that should continue for three decades.
There are a dozen considerations be
yond beauty that should govern the
choice of a companion. Think for a
moment whom von admire most, trust
implicity, and love more ardently than
all others. Truly it is not the wax
doll face in a milliner's window: were
that so, why not marry the model and
get the perfection of beauty.
uo not marry a very small man
or
woman. irv to get some form to
ui-
i
mire, something to share thin
and some one who is not los
crowd conijiletely, who i3 too Hi
admire and too small for beauty.
Don t marry too vouusr. Tne right
age to marrv is a matter ot taste:
twentv-one for girls, and twenty-four
for boys mav be a little arbitrary, but
certainly is sensible. The happy earlv
marriages are rare. It too often hup-
tens that love is mistaken, or poorly
informed, or lacks an anchor in good
iudgment. There is no use of reason-1
ing about it, love is, love and will mar-
rv in suite of reason, and in some
cases it runs away with its choice and
anil repents of it a thousand t imes soon
after.
Dut be sensible, for a Vife contract

should be a sensible one. Ask vour
truest friends: take counsel; be above
foolishness. Don t marrv a hypocrite,

Young women, don't marry a drunk

It is a sorry picture to behold a fair

deceives no one, for her character, like
the dude's, is transparent that no one
mistakes its meaning. The habit of
going nowhere for nothing is as foolish
as it is injurious. There will be many
such called, but few will be chosen.
The time will soon come when a
fine suit and a nice fit will no more

Toads, next to snakes, are hated and
despised, yet iu a garden they devour
multitudes of insects that prey on the
labors of man, and do not meddle with
any of the plants, fruits or flowers
that require his cultivation. Some
writers have denied that the toad under
any circumstances was poisonous; hut
this is a mistake. When in danger or
when irritated, the tubercular eleva
tions on the back and sides have the
powar of secreting a milky fluid, as
every one may readily ascertain, and
very schoolboy who is in the habit of
pelting them with stones well knows,
1 his nun, given for defence, as I sup-
pose, is decidedly poisonous, as its ef-
fects on cats and other animals fully
nrove. This is the onlv cower of in-
juring it possesses; and this secretory I
and offensive power appears to reside
in tne skiu, as tne animal is lrequentiy

Taught to Work
One wise regulation among the
Jews insists on every boy learning a
trade. It is not necessary that every
boy who learns a trade should follow it
all his life, but it is best to kuow
thoroughly some kind of work. It is
only hy this one can prove his fidelity
and excellence.
tjovernor raimer, or Illinois, was a
it Ik 1 M Y 1
country blacksmith once, and began his
political career as a constable of Macou
pin county. A circuit judge in the
i n i i
central part or Illinois was once a
tailor. Thomas Hoyne, a rich and
eminent lawyer of Illinois, was once a
book-binder, hrastus Corning of rsew
York was too lame to do hard labor
and commenced as a shop-boy in Al
bany. When he applied for employ
ment first he was asked : bv, my
boy, what can you do?" "Can do what
I am bid," was the answer that secured
him a place. Vice-presideut Wilson of
Massach usetts was a shoe-maker. 1 h u r-

Governor Stone of Iowa was a cabiuet

How to Visit the Sick.

go. Should
you be admitted: into the sick room, go,
but make your stay short, saying noth
ing but what will be beneficial to the
i 1 . i i
sick. Don't stay as so rtianv do, till
they are entirely worn out with a train
of nothings gone over by you, and wish
you to go away and never to return.
Item ember a sick person is not like a
well person, and persons waiting on
the sick are generally worn out' and
have enough to do without waiting on
you; so go after eating, and go home
before the next meal, telling the cook
when you go your intentions, unlesa
you can be of use. If so, do what you
can in the best possible way, then un
less they request you to stay longer.

visit the sick. Such as these, 1 can
assure you, you are not welcome. Now
there are exceptions; persons coming
from quite a distance are excusable.
but they should be ready to do more
than your trouble.
1 have attended the sick bed quite a
good bit, and have been perfectly dis
gusted at humanity, or the greater
part of it. On one occasion I remem
ber 1 went to attend the sick, and once
just as supper was being prepared for
the family, in stepped a con pie, causing
considerable trouble, stayed until after
supper, then almost immediately after
(without offering to help in the least)
offered excuse for not coming sooner,
and sorry they could not stay longer,
but would try and come again. I hey
left, leaving all wishing they had not
come, and hoping they would never re

Most women naturally look forward to
matrimony as their proper sphere in life,
but they .should constantly bear in mind
that a fair, rosy face, bright eyes, and a
healthy well-developed form, are the
best passports to a happy marriage. All
those wasting disorders, weaknesses,
"dragging-down" sensations, and func
tional irregularities peculiar to their sex,
have an unfailing specific in Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. It is the only
medicine for women, sold by druggists,
under a positive guarantee from the manu
facturers, that it will give satisfaction in
every case, or money will be refunded.
This guarantee has been printed on the
bottle wrapi sr, and faithfully carried out
for many years.
Prospectors are roaming about the
mountain country of Tennessee,
through which railroads are to pass,

Rich lead and silver ore hare been

mense cave in Potuam county five dis
tinct veins of lead, all valuable, hare
been found. -
If we strive to become what we strive
to appear, manners may often be ren
dered useful guides to the performai
of our duties. Stuney omtrn.
