A week or two ko there appear

It given notire of the pending
lawsuit between J. W. Kowcll and
J. V. Little, and speaks of J. V.

Th is, 1 think, is entirely mislead

talk too much, I think but when
the time for action comes he ha
never been known to show the

lie better if he said and did some
things differently, yet I have never

to get rid of it, but Jinunie Little
said, "I he hell kettle must go,"
and it went and has never returned.
In the village of Wiugate, some
time sgo, there was a mitu whom

on the scene aud the business

of similar incidents have occurred
iu Uuion aud surrounding counties
in which J. V. Little has been the
It is true that his denunciation
of wrong is terrific and sometimes
of the wrong -doer unnecessarily
severe, I think, but for the suffer
lug and all who stand in need of
help, his heart is as tender as a lit
tie child's. And for the man who
is down, from any cause, and is
honestly trying to rise, his words
and deeds are full of sympathy and
help. Although of slender means,
many a dollar has he given to the
unfortunate and many an orphan
has he helped; while to hear him
pray at the bedside of the sick, is
to feel that the secret of the 1-oru
is with him. He has knelt at the
writer's bedside when life was Hick
ering. Unlettered be is, sometimes
uncouth and inelegant in bis ex
pressioDS, but I do not k now a man
who seems to come in closer touch
with God upon such occasions.
It is always pleasant to stay
on the good side of folks, aud I love
to dwell on such passage in the
Bible as. "Thy gentleness bath
made me great." and, "When a
man's ways pleases the Lord be
msketh even his enemies to be at
peace with him." But truth is
many aided and should he viewed
from many standpoints, aud lest we
should give undue prominence to
the sentiment exprvtwu iu the pas
sage just quoted, we should study
such paKsaws as, ''I raiue uot to
send peace on earth but a sword,"
and, "Woe unto you w hen all men
shall speak well of you." Ktuooth
wortls are very uice, but there is a
lot of son talk that passe for reli
gious that is only a cloak to rover
np the wickedness and moral cow
ardice of men. I was once ou the
train with a Baptist preacher and
he was telling me his troubles.
Said a certain man was persecuting
blm aud trying to injure his char
acter, but that be was meekly bear
ing it all in the name of the Lord;
that only his religion helped and re
strained him iu the ordeal through
which he was passing and at the
very time he was trying to steal a
ride on the train. Such men need
to be denounced in no uncertain
terms. And we nerd fearless men
to cry aloud agaiust the prevailing
evils of our times.
Such a man is J. W. Little.
Whatever his mistakes, faith in his
liod, love of right and hatred of
wrong are the ruling passions of
his life. O. M. M.t mucks.

You had beeu a very sick man.
For mouths the elements of dis

system you hid vaguely felt it,
aud had spoken of it but hail not
known what to do; so you had gone
ou from week to week slowly ap
proaching a crisis.
At length some trilling cause,

cough which shook you almost to

of cold aud the burning fever, the
rheumatism which swelledand stiff
ened every joint then the lassi
tude of utter weakness in which
you could barely muster strength
to answer necessary questions or to
swallow necessary physic.
It was a toss-up as to whether
you would die. You kuew it, and
you didn't care.
Of all the phenomena of illness
that surprised you most. You
looked Death in the face and were
uot afraid. Yoa simply didn't care.
Over the mantel was the picture
of a schoolboy of twelve years,
school-book and school-bucket in
hand, with a white wool hat on his
head, and iu his freckled face the
liold, frank, confident look of ro

kuew that and for her sake you
would keep up the fight; otherwise
it did not at all mutter to you
whether the long lane turned or
not. For you had reached middle
age, aim the illusions wei gone.
Perhaps yours had been a hard
ife, unusually hard. Perhaps in
everything which yon had under
taken it had cost you twice as much
toil and persistence to succeed as it
had seemed to cost other men.
Perhaps yoa had come to realize
that you were one of those men
with whom Fortune deals grudg-
ngly, one of those whom Hone de
ceives and Success laughs at, one
of those who always has wind and

It may have been that when you
were a boy you read much, thought
more solierly than most boys do,

you at study. Year in and year
out, you worked by day aud stud
led by night.
You began with pitifully small
fees. Often you rode all day, to
and from Justice a C ourt, to earn
the half of five dollars. The entire
labor of your first year at the Bar
gained yon but two hundred and
twelve dollars. You lived in the
country, walked three miles to your
oflice, ate a cold dinner which yon
bad brought with yon, and waited
for clients, eager for work.
Year after year pa,ted. So

as much or as little as you would.
Four or five years passed, and
the .'lie thing of which you had
enough was money.

You longed to do something wort h

You hinged to tight a good fight for
justice, for lietter laws, for benefi

that are more equitable, for a fairer
distribution of the bounties and

Th i: day of the sis-lling rxaiuiua

wem io school iu a very nervous
Inline or uuml.
He had worked hard and faith
fully, and had studied his little
blue siielliug book uutll it seemed
lhat he kuew it all.
There was to lie a prize for the
child paaong the best examination.
It was a lieautifully hound hook
of stories. Johnny did so want the
hook, and uow at lust the dty had
kach scholar was given a strip
of paper ruled off iuto twenty five
lines. The leat her was to read the
word aud give three minutes to
write it iu. There were to be tweu
ty five words.
Johuuy tried his pen, aud, be
cause it did uot write easily, he
raised his band aud asked for a new
one. It was giveu him, aud, with
ins little loreiieau drawn into a
scowl, he w rote the heading and
theu waited for the teacher to give
out the word. He Usiked arouud,
and he was so excited that nothing
seemed natural. The clock looked
as though it was laughing at him,
and the big insurance calendar
seemed twice as large as before.
"Kunning."' The teacher pro
nounced the word slowly and dis
tinctly. Johuuy knew how to siiell
that all right, and be quickly wrote
it down. It seemed an age liefore
the teacher gave out the next word.
Johuuy soou got used to waiting,
aud wheu the twenty-fifth, the last
word, was alsmt to ls given, he
knew he had all of them right so
far. If only he could get the last
"Business," said the teacher.
Poor Johnny was heart broken! It
was the one word iu the whole
Issik that be could uot rcuieiulier.
Did the "i" come Is-fore the "s"
or was it "b u s i n e s s!" For the
life of him he couldn't tell. Ho be
sat there looking blankly at the
calendar, slowly reading the adver
tisement. Suddenly a Hush came
to his cheeks, and with a quick
glance at his teacher, he wrote
down the word correctly.
1 lie next day ou which the prize
was to be giveu Johnny went to
school with a sorry little heart un
der his jacket. Kveu the thought
of the prize could not make him
After the morning exercises, the
teacher stood up to give the prize.
"The spelling of the class has
pleased me greatly," she said. "It
was a hard examination, and I did
not exiiect any oue to have them
all right; but one Isiy did have
them all right, and another had all
right but one. I am going to give
the prize to Johnny Fairbanks, as
he had every one right. Tommy
.(ones had all except oue." Then
she started to pass the book to
Johnny. Johuuy was very white
and seemed to lie trying to say
something. Finally he burst out:
"(live it to Tommy. I cheated,
Miss II aw ley. I couldn't think
J how to spell that lust word, and 1
was looking at tlie calendar there,
aud the word was on it: and I didn't
say anything alsmt it, but wrote it
down just as fast as I could."
Poor Johnny! if he hadn't looked
at the calendar he might have had
the prizo; for without that last
word he had as many as Tommy.
But the teacher had given the book
to Tommy as be had asked.
That evening at the supper table
Johnny told all alsmt it to his fath
er and mother. His father said,
"I had rather see you mau enough
to own np than to see yon win a
thousand siielling prizes.'' So John
ny went to lied happy.

Mr. F. M. Smith of La nest 're, k

The farmers' institute which met
here ou last Tuesday and Wcdnes
lay ought to result in much food.
The discussions on the several sub
jects as giveu iu The Journul be
fore the meeting, were very inter
esting aud were freely indulged in,
not only ny those lecturers alio
came from a distance, but by our
Home ieopie as well. e do uot
find riMiiu for the discussions for
the reason that this pas-r is con
tinually publishing matter of that
haractcr all during the year and
our readers who keep up closely
get practically Ihe same matter in
smaller "doses" every week, line
thing that was a great draaback to
the work is the fact that the iusti
tute was held iu the court house,
where it is impossible for those not
gathered right around the sisakcr
to hear what is ls-ing said. A 1s t
ter place should lie secured if isis-
sible next year.

Ihe bowels. Do not use any substitute,
but give the old fasliiuned castor oil,
and see that it is fresh, as raucid oil
iikuseates aud has a tt-udeucy to gripe.
