talking with friends in her home

she was becoming a monstrosity,

the following pedigree: ''Husha

cote; close relation to Lad of Kush,
Jingo, Kip Hap aud King of Kent."
He said the dog was a stray cur
alniut the freight yards iu Winston,
and last December followed a rail
road man named Longworth to
Kernersville. There be took up
with a uegro, who sold him to Jor

You will now give me your un
divided attention, while I deliver
a lecture on hearts. You have sr
haps observed, my friends, that
there lire a great many dillerent
kinds of hearts. There are brave
hearts and cowardly hearts; good
tieails and bad hearts; hard hearts
aud tender hearts; sweethearts and
bobtail heart Hushes.
I told you in my last lecture that
your heads were made for a pur
Mise, and I want yon to use your
heads today to grasp the idea that
(iod gave you jour hearts for a
purpose. They are Just as impor
tant in your physiological and
psychological construction us your
heads are. As you prance along
the highway of life, you will dis
cover that a heart is a convenient
thing to carry along with you,
esiieciully if it is a light and happy
oue. If you have a light heart,
you will find yourself wanting to
help toto somebody else's before a
great while. But before you un
dertake to assume the care and
transfer of some blue-eyed girl's
heart, you would better know that
it will tit reasonably well in the
same grooves as your own. Your
Uncle Toliey has known many a
soft, tender heart to lie brokeu by
coming in contact with a hard, un
feeling one. And, my friends,
don't mistake gush for tenderness,
(iush may pnweed from a light
head instead of a light heart.
The subject of hearts is one that
gets very near to us all. The heart
is the center or all our leelmgs. it
is the scale iu which we weigh the
acts of our friends aud ought to
weigh our own. It is the bar at
which we iudire our enemies. It is
the fountain head of all thoughts
and deeds. It is the safe deposit
where we treasure tip all the sweet
memories of the past, and the tab
let on which is marked the scars of
ill treatment. It is the captain of
the little craft iu which we journey
down the stream of life. It is the
dwelling place of the soul that
indestructible spiritual lire that
dwells within us.
There are glad hearts and sail
hearts, and hearts that are broken.
Did you ever think, dear friends,
that no human being was ever borivl
whose destiny was not linked with
the heart of some one else! There
is the mother's solicitude for her
child; the heart is its abiding place.
