I don't agree with you. They

Tom bad risen, githeiingup his
letters and papers as be spoke. Ho
had not boon married long enough
to know whether to expect a soene.
and ho was anxious to got away.
l!ut Kate took his refusal coolly,
t hough she d id not hide her disap
pointment, d'om was rich, and
liberal enough with his money: but
ho was also habitually sharp in a
business matter, and not fond of
risks. Ho was afraid ho had offend
ed his wife, but ho could not help
it. She would constantly bo made
a dupe of by her friends, if they
found she had unlimited credit.
-Then you refuse to let me help

"Then it is ouh the seem it v oti
"Ve.-: and if ou will write "
"Pardon mo." interrupted Kate.
T could scarcely after all tho Ver
nons" kindness, write that I doubted
their honesty."
d'om Kirby said no more, but
went to his bank. Kate strolled
through the conservatory, fed her
birds, gave the neoessary house
hold orders, and sent woid to the
coachman at what hour she wanted
the carriage. Then she wrote a
long lettet to Fanny Vernon. Tom
Kirby would have been surprised if
ho had read the last half dozen
linos. Kate expressed regret at
not enclosing the desired cheque,
but promised to do so in a week.
Then she dressed to go out.
Her first visit was to her jeweler's
where she bought some trinkets,
laoked at sots of jewels, and ended
in ordering her diamonds to bo re
set in an antique stylo she fancied.
They wore to bo sent homo the
first ol the week, in time for a ball
that was to bo gieii. Then she
drove to her dressmaker's, and
wasted an hour or iiihio in looking
over fashions, before she ordered a
dress for tile coming ball.

Kate had. he acknowledged, be

She had not shown the least ill

as oil' as possible from the sub
ject. nly once was Kato foolishly
wilful on the night ot Mrs. Hell's
ball. Her dross was perfect, but

should w ear her diamonds, on t he
plea that they would spoil the

Jewels: liked to kluov that he could
atVoid to give thciii to hoi. Kate
laughed oil this small disagreement
by promising to wear t he jew els at
the in-l ball. Hut this one wusthc
hist ot' the season.
It was a inoiniiig in August. I ke
windows weie wide open, but the
air was heavy with boat and the
odor of late summer tlowers. The
stock market was as heavy as the
ail', and d'om Kirby sat oer his
breakfast reading the advertise
ments of summer resorts. It was
difficult to tind exactly what he
wished, and so he proposed Sara
toga. Hut Kate objected. She
did not tool equal to the crowd, ami
the amount of dressing required.
She did not sceni interested in the
advertisement he lead out: indeed,
she w-as absorbed in the letter she
was reading. Suddenly d'om i e
called their bieakf.isr last lb-comber
w hen ho had refused to loan
Fanny Vernon s.l.niio. The sur
roundings were so entirely ditl'eront:
as widely separated as the beef
steak and omelet of the winter
breakfast was from the cool melons
and poaches of the summer meal.
Then ho remembered the fact that
the time had entirely arrived for
tho pretty widow to redeem her
diamonds; and ho wondered at his
forget fulness in proposing tole.ue
homo just then, lie did not care
to explain." even to
clerk, that he had diamonds as se
curity Iocke 1 up in the sale.
Suddenly" Kate looked up lioiii
her letter and said: "Tom, I with
draw my objection. I think the
Saratoga plan excellent."
"It does not make the smalie-t
difference. I am not strongly in
cliiied towards Sai'.itoga." said
Tom. coldly .

Why should the State exorcise
control and supervision over edu
cat ion .'
What do you mean by tho Slated
Why is know ledge tin
right of man .'
Why is education the
uni voisal
tin i'oi'sal
e right to
interest and duty of man?
How is man's inalienable right to
liberty and the pursuit of
best secured:
Arc ignorant men fi ee men ?
Is ignorance a menace to free in
stitutions? What would you consider a suf
tlcient qualification for the exercise
of suffrage?
"What we're Thomas Jefbc lson's
views of the relation of education
1 to the welfare of the State ami the
happiness of the people?
What were the words of Presi
dent Goo. Washington in regard to
edueation. in his farewell address?
What distinguish, d jurist was
the author of the following senti
ment? '"The parent who sends his
son into (he world uneducated, do
I frauds the community of a lawful
i citizen and bequeaths to it a niiis
i ance."
Who was the author of t his sent i
mcnt? '-You will conler tho great
est benefit on your city, not
i by raising the roofs, but
I by exalting the souls of your
fellow-citizens: for il is better that
great souls should live in small
habitations, than that abject slaves
should burrow m great houses."
Would it do to leave the promo
tion of education to the operation
of the law of demand and supply?
Who uttered this sentiment "Let
the soldier be abroad if he svill, he
can do nothing in this age. there is
another personage abroad, a per
son less imposing, in the eyes ol
some insignificant. The school
master is abroad: and I trust to
him. armed with his primer, against
the soldier in full uniionn array."
.Much has been accomplished
within the past few years in both
method and matter. Is further re
form needed? and if so, who must
be the leading factoi ?
It is to be hoped that all teachers,
in Lenoir county svill go forward
and have their names e- rolled as
members of the Lenoir County
Teachers Association, at ,ts next
meeting. The white tenders not
only of Lenoir, but of adjoii. ng
counties, would fmd it greatly to
their advantage to join our a-so( :a
tion and attend every meeting, as
questions of vital importance to the
profession are there fully and ably
discussed, by teachers of high in
telleotual, moral and professional
The colored teachers of the coun
ty also organized by the election ol
olliccrs of excellent attainments. I
hope the colored teachers svill avail
themselves of this opportunity of
improvement. Let us not lorget
that, "wherever any portion of the
race is to be raised from the, degra
dation ot Ignorance, it must be done
through the power of w ise teaching
during the period of childhood and
youth." Hence, wo must pros ; !e
teachers adequate in numbers, in
learning, in capacity, and in skill
to the magnitude of Jdie work to bo
performed. We should ever bo.u
in mind that if the unedti vated
cannot be the judges of cultivaii n,
they cannot surely be leaders of '.
It has been said that "Properly to
conduct and control the humblcsi
school, demands more svisdom than
to rule a Si ate.
Very truly, etc.,

pleasure the o: courarilng remarks from
your Jones emu' ty correspondent on
the interest tha'ahou-I'l ne taken by our
county in the i onroachirjg State Expo
sition, and I uaJTrrti J i k e to make the
following suggestion, : That the
counties of J mes. Onslow. J-ienoir.
( raven, ( al ien t. Pamlico and.any otirer.
enstern counties that may desire to join 1
in. secure in the fair grounds a certain
plot or space of ground of sufficient size
to place u pon it a build ing. bui lc ent i re
ly from llic shell rock taken from ihe
banks of the Trent river, and that this
building be used exclusively for the ex
hibit from i. ni' eastern counties The
building nf itself would attract the at
tention of every person visiting the ex
hibition. The r.uln . ads could welliilfurd
to transport the rock to Raleigh free of .
charge. J. .in -, '. , uiiity ought to give not
less than live hundred dollars besides
the dun;. lions would come from
many of her citizens. I for one will
cheerfully take one hundred dollars
worth of stock in the building if one of
tin- proper size a u-1 sty le is put u p. Can "t

Warren Lelaiid,
vOmni errrytKxly knows as th
manager of the
Largest Hotel Enterprises
or Amcric.i, says that while a, passenger from
WW York on board a ship going around Cap
Horn, in tho early days of emigration toOaV
ir riiia, he learned that one of the offloSTf of
th- rfsel had cured hi nine If, during to soy-R-
of an obstinate disease by the OOTOf
Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
Sl nre then Mr. Lklaxd has recommended
Avers Saks atarii-la In many sUulla
cases, and ho has never yet heard of t9 fail
lire tn effect a radical cure.
Some years ago one of Mr. Lklaxd'1 farm' s
laborers bruised his leg. Owing io the b4
state of his blood, an ugly srrofulous swelling
or lump npi-earcd on the Injured limb. Hor
rible itching of tho skin, with bornlng and
darting pains through the lamp, niade life
almost intolerable. The leg became BOf ...
inously enlarged, and running ulcers formed
discharging preat quantities of extremely
olfensivc matter. No treatment was of may
avail until the man, by Mr. I,ELAKDadiree- -tion,
was supplied with AY Kit's 8 A &S APA
RT 1. 1. A . which allayed the pain and Initattow, -healed
tho sores, removed (he swelling, and
completely restored tbo limb to ttse.
Mr. Leland has personally used
Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for Rhenmatiim, with entire success and,
after careful oliservation, declares that, la
bis hel;. f. there is uo medicine In the world
equal to i for theenre of Liver Dteordava,
