discuss the ways of training children,
and upon the right solution depends
the fate of nations, States and centu

child ought to study more than sis

the other hours of daylight should be
for recreation. Overstudy by this stuf

know a child that died under this sys

tiny of that child of ytmrs. There's r
great error abroad between laxity and
tyranny over a child. What a dis
gusting thing is a house full of disobe
dience. In all ages there has been a
need for a society for the prevention of
cruelty to children. Many homes have
become like John O'Groat's, who had
eight windows, eight rooms and eight
sides to a table, because his children
quarreled so. Some one said to a child :
I wonder why that tree is so croked?'
The little child, who was ill-treated at
home, said: 4I suppose it was trod on
when it was young.' Children are
echoes of their parents." continued the
preacher. "A trapper sometimes puts
out fire on the plains with fire, but you
can't put out tire in a child with fire of
your own. A sursreon is not emel
when, with a firm hand, he removes
the gangrene. Childish rage uncheck

way to spoil a child is to fill him up

New Cotton Factory The Way it was
From the Raleigh News-Observer.
The town of Mooresville, in Iredell
county, is to have a cotton factory;
The citizens of that town have gone to
work and, with the assistance of State
Immigration Agent J. T. Patrick, have
secured it. Some time since Mr. Pat
rick originated and adopted a plan bv
which any town or citv in the State
can easily secure any kind of a factory
it may want, and the real live towns are
taking advantage of it. The plan has
been published before. It is about as
Mr. Patrick is in almost daily cor
respondence with factory men and capi
talists who desire to come to this State
to make investments; but the capital
ists naturally want some encourage
ment and evidence of good will. Mr.
Patrick's );J in is to determine by en
quiry what kind of factory would be
most prohtable in a certian place if
the citizens want the factory and if so
how much they want it. He has had 1
prepared blank forms or this purpose
which may be explained as follows : It
has been determined that is a good
location for a cotton factory. The
citizens of have declared they
would like a factory in their town, but
they do not wish to invest large
amounts in one as they know nothing
about the business; but some are wil
ling to make donations in order that
the factory may be established in the
town. The form sets forth that the
citizens of such town will give one-halt
acre of land for the site of the factory
and will also give certain amounts in
money each, ranging from $10 to any
amount They subscribe their names
and write down the amounts they pro
pose to give. This list is returned to
Mr. Patrick, who submits it to some
company seeking investments, and
points out the inducements offered by
the town of . Of course cotton
f act or it s would not be paying institu
tions in every place, but a different
kind of factory might be badly needed
in some town, a canning factory in
another, a spoke and handle factory in
another, an iron foundry in another,
and so on. For everyJodustry of this
and many other kinds, competent men
are seeking locations. With the lists
which Mr. Patrick proposes to make
up, he can show anybody a desirable
field for any manufacturing enterprise
and show just what kind of a reception
and how much encouragement will be
given to the enterprise. He is always
in correspondence with parties who de
sire such information and who will act
on obtaining it.
One of these blanks was sent to the
town of Mooresville, aud the citizens
at once agreed to invest about $20,000
in a cotton factory and that amount
has been subscribed. This list was su b
mitted by Mr. Patrick to Messrs. God
fred & Co., of Providence, R. L, and
lL ! 1 .. ..
tney win at once put in all necessary
machinery for a first-class cotton fac
tory and commence operations.
Similar measures for establishing
various other kind of factories in the
State are in progress, all of which will
probably result in the building of vari
ous industrial enterprises.
General Lee's Bible.
CARRIED TO MAINE RT A UNION SOLDIER
AND RECOVERED RY ADVERTISING.
Twenty-five years ago a regiment of
Maine soldiers were encamped on Ar
lington Heights, and the boys, under
standing that anything belonging to
the iv beli was common property, and,
therefore, might be comfiscated, ran
sacked the old Lee mansion pretty
thoroughly. They captured old pipes
and wines and pictures, and everything
that was portable. Of course they did
not need many of these things. Such
articles which had belonged to General
Lee had a peculiar interest, and were
very desirable. One soldier who arriv
ed late after the desirable articles had
been taken, found the old family Bible
and sent it down east to his home in
Maine. There were Bibles in Maine
but none like this. After the war wnn
over this soldier returned home and
found, to his surprise, that the Bible
contained all the. usual ingredients,
including the Ten Commandments
and Apocrypha, but in addition
to these, between the Old and New
Testaments, was a complete family
record, giving the history of the Lee
family for the last 200 years.
The soldier was sorry that he had
taken the book, but too proud to ac
nowledge the fault, and so he held his
peace. in the meantime biographers
were at work on the life of General Lee
and certain dates regarding the birth
and marriage of his ancestors were
a li i l -m -1 l a a

information. Advertisements were in
serted in all the papers and by and by
came a letter from Maine saying the
Bible was in the possession of a soldier's
widow, who would gladly restore it to
the owner.. Before the property could
be recovered, however, the -widow died,
and then- came another long wait until
the estate was settled. But at last the
book was fully identified and turned
over to a messenger, who passed through
Boston recently, carrvincr if hne.lr fn its
old place at Arlington Heights. The
foolish act of a boy soldier has hinder
ed the completion of an important
historical work: tor years, but the liible
is at last restored to its owner, and the
biographer can now complete his task.
The New French Bills. i
The Lebel rifle, the new arm with
which the French infantry will le sup
plied before next spring, is smaller and
lighter than the rifles now in use. It
will carry its bullet more than a mile
and a half, and with a more certain aim
than has been possible with ordinary
rifles. The bore of the trun is vorv
small, and the ball, which is of steel
and sharply pointed at one end, is said
to revolve at a speed of 1,000 revo u
tions a second. In the tests made by
the French government this bullet has
penetrated a brick wall eight inches
thick at a distance of 500 yards; it will
go through any kind of arn.or which
can be worn by soldiers, and at a dis
tance of more than a mile will pass
t h rough a man as easily as at ten paces.
The Lebel gun is, of course, a repeater,
and the cartridges are so small that each
soldier carries 220 rounds of ammuni
tion, as against 110 rounds, formerly
considered the maximum. New York

In an office building uptown Victor
Fiecher has bis quarters. There he sells
the finest and costliest old violins that
are sold in America. Amateurs who
collect old fiddles know him well, and
enormous prices are paid by them for
the instruments he makes a specialty
of buying and selling. A man fVnm
Lthe far west bought -a Stradivarus for
I . -. . a aa i I .a m.
6,tuu tne other afternoon, and in the
course of his purchase played a snatch
of a tune on it. His playing was
execrable. I never heard worse from
a street musician. 1 remarked nn
this to the dealer, and he replied, smil
"The costliest violins belong to the
men who have least skill in playing
them. That is one of the curiosities of
the trade. Those wha collect violins
are rarely master performers on them.
They buy for the sake of having. Men
who can play the violin do not invest
fortunes in instruments. They buy as
good as they can afford for themselves
and do their best with it"
This collection of fiddles is, by the
way, a curious craze. I knew a man in
London who had it verv badlv. Ha
owned dozens of violins, and had each
put by in a special glass case on the
wall of his study along with a little
book containing its history, written by
himself, and the documents that
authenticated it. He also had a fine
collection of bows. He would start off
at an hours notice for Russia or
America to get hold of a prize violin,
and the only tune he could play
through was "Yankee Doodle," which
is the easiest o .e to learn on the violm.
Mr. Joseph W. D rex el owns, I believe,
the finest collection of violins in New
York, which probably means America,
but he is far from a brilliant performer
on them. New York News. "
