others have a chance to relluct.
All this may-maim but little to a
nou-believer, and it is culy they,
who are not interested iu what a
poaitiou uu editor is placed in, ho
to be entertaining to those round
ab iut him unless 'buy can be a

and make fun upou thing they
know nothing about.

then you talk about becoming a
D. E. 10 ray hearing! This the
general idea people have thinks
the Gleaner's editor that now con
siderable parties think it in easy
to write a newspaper and he as un
concerned about it as possible.
True, every man has but a calling
in life and with that, can that one
man fill, aud no other. lie can
not be two places at once and ex
pect to make a fortune. Ws may
think all those thir.gs out of the
question but let me tell yon it is
the best way of social training of
the-mind. D. K. is away from his

THE WOMAN WHO CHARM.
From Harper's Round Table:,Io
one of the most intimate and con
fidential talks a dear girl asked
me to tell her what I think the
most desirable gift for a woman.
8he spoke of several friends-osje
of them as having grace of move
ment ; another, as rarely beautifal
with brilliant eyes and lovely
complexion; a third as accoofc
plisbed, playing and sinfing, an 4
speaking two or three language
besides her own ; a fourth, as vers
clever. We may multiply the litJ
and as we look over oor circle of
friends we easily see that uearly
every one hsH something bright
aud individual which commends
her to us ; but the sum of the mat
ter ia that the gift of all gifts for
a girl is expressed in one little
word of five letters charm.
