Two of my teacher loot their
lives in the war. One wan killed

hut there was a time when I thought
I ouht to have had one. I thought
so theu aud I still think so. land
another boy were seated side by
side iu the school room. The other
Ixiy had oceiiMou to vacate bis scat
tor a short w hile and rrueNted me
to let no oue take it in but absence.
Well, as soou as he was away, just
out of mischief, 1 occupied bis seat
myself. He was aoou bark aud
commenced wrangling for bis seat,
which I stubbornly refused to sur
render. The teacher, seeing the
disturbance, demanded an explana
tion. The other boy explained the
whole matter. I felt sure that I
would get a w hipping, but, instead,
be called the other boy up aud
gave him a severe whipping. Why
he was so put tint I never could un
stand. There was a boy in one of
the schools that I wt tended whom
we will cull Hill. He was a slov
enly, dull, halfwitted fellow and
it w as real amusing to hear his odd
and ipiaiut expressions of speech.
Often in the evening just after
school was out, just out of mischief,
I would invite Hill home with me.
His reply would invariably be,
"Oh, no." I kept up the invita
tion until one evening wheu' he
scented to take the matter into con
ttitleratiou, so he said to his young
er brother, "You take tie bucket, I
believe I'll go."
1 then begun to haul in, and
said, "No, Hill, you needn't go; 1
don't wau't you to."
"Oh, yes," he said, and started.

I had an older brother in the
school who owned a fine little pen
knife. Ouo evening after school
was out be had his knife out whit
tling and said: "Hill, what will yon
give me for my knife!" After a
little hesitation Hill drawled out,
"Well, I believe I'll giveou a la
ter." My brother, just for fnu,
agreed. Itill had an older brother
standing nearby watching the ne
gotiation, and seeing the Initio
about to be eonsumated he sprang
forward with the exclamation,
"You Hill, you goiu' to give a later
for that knife!" and snatched the
potato from Hill's hand. 1'oor Hill
died iu later years a most horrible
death. C. K. Hkown.

For putting in prime condition

their preparation the same care is
used that a druggist would exer

tethered out to graze in the thin
patch of woods near bis slaughter

negro man who has charge of the
slaughter peu found the cow still
grazing, but over two feet of her
tail was banging to a small pine
tree nearby. The treo bore marks
of having gone through astreuuous
tussle and it is supposed that the
cow, having wrapped her tail
around the tree, in her efforts to
extricate herself pulled her tail in
two, a rainer unusual nappeuing
indeed. The protruding leaders
and ragged edge of the hide pre
clude the supposition that it was
cut by some pcrsou and placed
around the tree. The bark was torn
off and the tree had evidently been
pulled close to the ground. Mr.

Some days ago we were look
ing over some oM books ot the
old firm of Stevens & Thifcr and
we find from inspecting them that!
the way in which they conducted
their business was the most ac
ceptable. They treated every
body just the same; there were
no favorites among their custom
ers; they made a small pec cent,
on their goods and made the same
per cent, on each customer.
Therefore they were very success
ful in business and people put
great confidence in them.
