The New York Herald of a recent
dat, referring editorially & tin? dis
charge of a reporter, said:
MVe sb ill dispel; with the wrvi

or free tickets 'of any sort, for tip jpftxl
a id sifficient reason that a reporter
who is embarrassed 1y such obligations
cm not be deluded up n lo write
honestly and impartially."
It does not say that he eaifbot write
honestly and impartially hut that, he
cannot be depended upon to do so.
There is a good deal in the i lea. The
iree pass business is nn evil. A judge
jsvith a free pass in his tket niay de
cide against a railroad, a legislator
with a pass may vote against, an editor
with a pass may attack it, but the ten
deiiev is the reverse and when the sense
of duty overcomes the sense of obltg.i-
tion in any of these cases the inoivio
ual must surely feel like an j in grate.

Another newspaper says: The most
popular tree for a Christmas celebra
tion is the balsam. This tree attains
perfection at the age of 20 years. After
this it begins to wither at the top and
gradually dies. The large balsam
trees are cut in great numbers for
churches and sunduy schools. They
are cut as young as six years. They
are merely bushes then, however, and
are used mainly by private families.
Next to balsam in popularity comes
the spruce. This tr, although it at
tains a greater height than the balsam
h..s a craggv appearance. Jt is cnt
when it is about ten years old. The
color is not so good, being a yellowish,
sreen, which withers verv soon. The
cedar trees are only cut by special or
der, as the demand for them is verv
limited. But they are the most fra
grant of the lot. White pine trees are
ueu by the grocery and butcher shops
to decorate with. They have a deep
green color and -last longer than any
of the others.
A Model Farmer.
The following signed "Milton Farm;
pr," appears in the Milton, G'a., Demo
prat, of Alpharetta, and shows what a
genuine fanner can do up in Northern
Georgia to make 4iis farm enable him
to "live at home" in the truest sense:
lhere is a farmer in Milton county,
who has been here ever since the
county was made, and this farmer
wants to know how many farmers of
said county raise their support at home,
pxcept salt, sugar and coffee.
This farmer and a friend of his who
was visiting bin) from. Gwinnett coun
ty, were talking. The farmer asked
Jlis guest how many farmers he knew
who -were self-sustaining, and he an
swered, UI hardly know any."
"Well," said the farmer, "you see
what we have on our table."
"Yes," he replied, "yon have plenty."
"Well, it was all raised here on this
farm. And we are wearing clothes
from our sheep, spun and wove on onr
own hom, and we raised the sheep !
here that made the wool. Our shoes
and boots that we are wearing were
made with our own hands, out of
leather off of eattle that I rauel here.
The stock that is pulling the plow was
raised here, and the cows that give us
"I shoe my own horses, make my
ax-handles, hoe-liandles, singletrees,
make and sharpen plows, and do many
such little things to keep the nickle at
home. An old man told me' when a
boy that those who would not save a
jittle would never save much.
"I have fertilized my wheats -corn
and cotton, but did not purchase a sack
of guano. I raised from eight acres of
land 100 busheU of fine wheat witl
home made fertilizers.
Hl will here say to the famers, awake

?oe are going, and stop so ninch outgo
for inch things as above named that

She waited a weary time in Bostou and

After a few miles' travel sho noticed
that an old gentleman was regarding
her, and his very kindly look reassured
her. After awhile he came to her aud

and upon being told that she was he

Some persons have the notion that Mr
Lincoln offered that if the southern pco
pie would return to the Union, the Uui
ted States would compensate them for
their slaves. This is iucorrcct. Mr
Lincoln never made that offer, lie hat
no right to do it. Before the war began
the Confederate uovernmaiit sent com
missioners to Washington Citv. but thev
were not received. After that President
Davis wrote a letter to President Lincoln
for peace, which Gen. Scott received
saying that a reply would be sent, but
none came. Later nrain in 18(v5, Mr
Davis sent Vice President Stephens to
President Lincoln for peace, but he was
not allowed to enter the rederal lines
ami the mission was fruitless.

which Mr. Lincoln demanded an uncon

The self-binder did not make its ap
pearance iu the liarvest field until the
western prairies furnished more grain
than could possibly be harvested by
hand at a profit, and the steam thresh
er soon followed, because, the same
want was the parent of both. The
same may be said of the broadcast
seeder, the press drill, and the gang
plow. The old style grain cradle that
our fathers used to swing, with their
wide scythes and five creoked wooden
fingers or prongs, is a thing of the al
most forgotten past, and Iras lieen laid
aside forever, with , the old-fashioned
wooden monldboard plows. I a agri
culture, as in everything else, new
methods have been inaugurated, and in
every step of progress the object has
been to save labor and make farming
easier and more lucrative.

It is bad policy to bo haughty, repel
lant, unsocial. The most resolute and
determined aspirant to wealth or po
sition may stumble as he climbs, and if
no one strotcho3 out a finor to save
him, may roll headlong, to a depth far
below tho point from which he started.
'An eye for an eye, a tooth for a
tooth," was the old law in Judoa. A
lift for a lift is the business rule of to
day; and if sometimes broken by the
ungrateful when there is most need of
its observance, it certainly works bet
ter than the principle that 11 man should
"care utterly for himaolf, neither giving
nor receiving assistance.
But it is not from prudential motives
merely tb.ut tho enorgotic and persever
ing assist each other. All men of
vigorous minds and elastic tempera
ments sympathize with effort. They
honor the individual who has fought
gallantly tho battle of life, though re
verses may have overtaken him; they
recognise kirn as a kindred spirit,
thougrh ha ftca on hia bnok; they are
willing to gire htm a "boost," because
they feeA thai be needs but a now foot
hold to assure his ultimate success.
These are among the reasons why men
who are true to themselves, are almost
invariably true to oaeh other, and why
their friendship and sympathy mean
something more than words.
Let no one, whatever his talents, his
opportunities or his confidence in his
ownpowers, despise the alliance of
such men. No human being ever was
or will be capable of achieving eminence
in tho business world without at least
the indirect help of others. Therefore,
let all young men who gre entering
business life labor in a manly and just
way to make friends and of the right
sort. N. Y. Ledger.
