Perhaps there are more failures and suspensions in the newspaper field than for any other kind of small enterprises. The Chatham Record says: iVeivspsper Failures. j ne.'c, as it is stated that three hundred and twenty-eight newspapers ceas ! ed publication during the past year. Yet strange to say many persons seem to think that newspapers are a bonanza to their publishers, and fre quently men who have failed at every other business think they are pecul iarly fitted for publishing a newspaper.

The United States is getting rich rapidly. There are many evidences of cltis, but perhaps one of the most striking evidences of this fact may be n r.n? nfr r,,o-n f0UR(1 in comparing our exports with imports. Starting as far back as 18G0, it has been shown by the Bureau oC Statistics of the Department of Commerce and Labor ;:hat our exports were only 4S million dollars, and our imports were 207 nillions. The imports exceeded the exports everv year until 1897. In 1320 the imports were 323 millions and the exports 179 millions. This was considerable gain on our exports in thirty years. The imports and exports tontmued to run closer and closer together every year until 1897, when the in-ports of manufacturers to this country were 30G millions and the vort" Pyf'i r-;'!;v-n-v p.y-.i, ;s h.ivo gradually moved apart every ear until in 1307 the manufactures imported were 650 million dollars while the exports were 770 millions. This shows that this country last year sold 120 million dollars more manufactures than it bought. This is indeed n great country and its resources are being wonderfully developed. Surely all Americans shouVd be proud cf their country and this pride and love of country ought to stimulate every man to be the best and most use ful citizen possible. Electric News Sarviee prints some interesting observations concerning jlectncity by Dr. Cha?. F. Steinmetz. He sajT3 it is not possible to use VweT ip 31 Vhnl- fh-b ary instruments for the purpose of figuring . ili uu LiotftJ!-j ililoii. . the forces of lightning, yet there are many other ways of calculating familiar to every mathematician. Dr. Steinmetz tas figured that the amount of light given by a single lightning flash is nouugh. to illuminate an area two miles square. The bolt inself .voulcl be visible several miles further off, but the remotest part of the region mentioned would have as much light as would be given by a candle quite enough to read by. To produce such a light it would be necessary to expend 13,000 horse-power for a second. These figures appear very large but the time is short. The flash might be for only 1-1000 part of -i second but the impression cn the eye would continue for a tenth of a -tccond anyway. Figured down to an exact hour this amount of force vould mean only about four horse-power. According to the professor, lightning flashes usually occur within thunder clouds and only rarely from one ordinary cloud to another or from a cloud to the ground. They seem co follow the rapid condensation of vapor in the air and to be caused by chat phenomenon. The kind of electricity formed in a thundercloud is net like that which is produced by electrical machinery. Lightning is static electricity, the same kind as is produced by rubbing amber with ,iik. When a body like a brass globe is charged with static electricity the charge stays on the surface ot it. The quantity of a full charge is limited by the area over which it can spread. Governor Glenn has called an extra meet in Raleigh Tuesday, January 21st. Tfes Extra Session. che State have agreed to the terms and rates proposed by Governor Glenn except the Atlantic Coast Line. It is hoped that a satisfactory law will be enacted both to the railroads and the people. Other things may come be fore the Legislature during its special session. Ex-Governor Thos. J. Jarvis, of Greenville, recently gave out an interview to the Greenville Re flector expressing the opinion that in case the Governor should call an ex tra session of the Legis'tatdre, it would be wise for that body to pass a State prohibition law. Governor Jarvis said that unless this is done the prohibition question will almost unavoidably be injected into the next cam paign. With the temperance sentiment in the State as it is now, Govern or Jarvis thinks that ail candidates for the Legislature will be asked to declare themselves on the temperance or prohibition question. This would bring about many kinds of unpleasantness, and for the harmony of the campaign Governor Jarvis thinks the Legislature in extra session should pass a State Prohibition law. He states further that conditions in the State now are far different from vhat they were in 1881 when the ques tion of prohibition was submitted to the voters of the State. Many think that Governor Jarvis is right, while others say that the Legislature should not pass such an act. The railroads have agreed to pay $17,500 towards meeting the expenses of the extra session, and all tax payers will be glad of this announcement.

We have been speaking a good deal about work; perhaps it is just as well to look at the other side. It is a necessity that men learn how to work, and that they practice ail they know, but it is just as necessary to true success that we learn to rest. In the ffreat struggle of life the bow must be bent, and the string must keep twanging as the arrows seek their mark; fcnt if ibat bow is to re tain its power it must learn to un bend. Leisure is not merely a lux ury; it is a necessity to highest hu man development. All nature rests. The mighty alba tross sleeps on the swinging waves. The wakeful deer, if denied his need ed sleep, is run down by the un mounted hunter. The very surges of the sea seem to sleep at times, and the restful winds do not always blow. Even the human heart, for bidden sleep, yet beats less often in its hours of rest. The hours of hushed activity are hours of blessed meaning to men. The voice of wisdom echoes its words of long ago: "Come ye aside, and rest awhile." Even the highest toil and loftiest endeavor are subject to this law. Now, we are not pleading for a slower pace, for that is not in our control; but we are pleading for that regular and frequent unbend ing of the bow, which is within our power. The mother must cease to be a mother for an hour or two and she will be a better mother afterwards. The busy mar, with a thousand irons in the fire, must forget both fire and irons for a while, and he will return to them with added strength. Rest a while! But some one says: "I can not rest. Business cares, family cares, social worries surround me, even in sleep." It may be we have forgot ten how to rest, but we will have to learn. Somewhere, in our rooms, by lakeside or quiet streams, where the ripe grain waits the reaper, or where the woody silences are full of magic cures for cares, somewhere, we should drop our burdens, and lose our wearied, overburdened selves. Rest hours are never wasted. The days we forget may be more fruitful than the days we toil. Let us out grow our hurry. One would judge sometimes, by our strenuous earn estness, that the very world depend ed upon that song, or speech, or let ter. It is not so. We are not as big as we think we are; and our labor is not just as important as we deem it. The world does not stop even when j its greatest die. The sun will not cease to shine even if we should cease to toil. Let us learn our true pace i in nature; let us learn to do our work; let us learn also to unbend the bow. We are not speaking now of vacation quiet, or of lengthly periods of inactivity, but the regular un stringing of the bow. Sometimes such an unbending comes with a good story and a hearty laugh. There is often real helpful ness in a good laugh. It clears the air; it relieves the tension; it.length ens life. Only last week a good brother told us of the help he got from that despised column of our paper called "Wise and Otherwise." To some a comical story is a thing to be despised. Probably their sense of humor is still in the rudimentary stage. But in these busy times there seems no doubt that there is healing medicine in every gleam of pure and genuine humor. Sometimes we need simply a social chat. It is strange how nervous ten sion relaxes when one talks freely with friends. It is true there are companions whose presence is a strain; we do not refer to those but to those others, often of the light hearted, merry type, whose presence is a nerve tonic. Such companion ships mean real rest. Sometimes a book, even a useless book, will give the needed rest. A book that is foolish, that is, one we almost despise, may sometimes be the one which will best relieve the strain. Well for us to understand the need and the cure. Then, sometimes, perhaps of tenest, it is best to get alone somewhere and talk with God. It may be where the lofty, silent stars look down upon us; there, alone with God and nature, we look up and breathe new life.

Whitehead & Co. us. Night's cool hand has calmed into restful quiet many a fevered brow; and the great hush of God's peace has stolen upon many a wear ied soul like some magic river of peace, which has carried them swift ly and silently beyond the reach of their petty earthly cares. True, it is only for a brief space; but in that restful hour the jaded spirit gather ed fresh strength for its work. These hours, or half hours.of strain less life, these periods of relaxed tension, are not only helpful to men, but they seem to be a necessity, if the toiler of to-day is to do his best work. Let us learn to rest as well as to toil. Friends, Although Opponents. (Youth's Companion.) Opponents in politics through many years, leaders in ardent debate again st each other. Webster and Calhoun formed during their active years a mutual admiration society which was not the less effective because their opinions of each other were seldom spoken. In the later years of his life Mr. Calhoun, says Richard Lathers in his "Reminiscences," was often absent from his seat in the Senate by rea son of indisposition. When this hap pened Mr. Webster would call at his lodgings to inquire as to his health and to relate to him incidents of the session. On one of these occasions he found Mr. Calhoun in low spirits. "Calhoun," he remarked, "physi cally you give no evidence of declin ing health. You must be overanxi ous in money matters. Are you in debt?" The question touched the dignity of Calhoun, a quiet, reserved man in his relations with others, and much disinclined to make a confidant of any one. Webster, observing this, took him by the hand and in the most soothing manner said, "Calhoun, there must be no display of dignity between us. We came into Congress about the same period, and have con tinued here many years, represent ing conflicting opinions which have often drawn us into heated sectional debate. But during those debates not one word of personal invective has ever escaped our lips." Calhoun was deeply moved. "I appreciate your friendly remarks, and will respond to your question in the spirit in which it is made," he said. "I am in debt, but I am not insolvent. "The fact is, on returning home from college, I attempted to puruse the law, a profession for wich I had been trained; but my fellow citizens, as was the case with yours, shoved me into public life, from which I have never retired. "While my family was small the income from my inherited estate was ample for our simple expenditures. Later the family increased, and the expenditures also. I was compelled to place a mortgage on my plantation and to rely largely upon my salary as Senator to meet my expenses. And I have been anticipating that in case of my death and the loss of my income as Senator my family would be compelled to part with the home stead." "How much is the mortgage?" asked Webster. "Twenty thousand dollars." "My dear friend," exclaimed his old opponent, "you are too valuable to your country to have anxiety about so paltry a sum as twenty thousand dollars. By twelve o'clock to-morrow I will raise the sum and cancel the mortgage even if it were twice as large." Mr. Calhoun thanked him with much emotion. "You have placed me under an obligation I can never repay," he said, "but how can a United States Senator from Carolina degrade himself by accepting such a charity?" "Ah," said Webster, "nature should have made you a Puritan of New England and me a Cavalier of South Carolina; for I would have borrowed their money to keep pace with their utmost liberality." Throughout their later political lives these leaders, the one of the North, the other of the South, each presisted in declaring the other to be the most honorable and the most truthful of living men.

Old Mothers. (CharUs S. Ros?, in the December Century.) I love old mothers mothers with white hair, And kindly eyes, and lips grown soft ly sweet With murmured blessings over sleep ing babes. There is something in their quiet grace That speaks the calm of Sabbath af ternoons; A knowledge in their deep unfalter ing eyes That far outreaches all philosoyhy. Time, with caressing touch about them weaves The silver-threaded fairy-shawl of , age. While all the echoes of forgotten songs Seem joined to lend a sweetness to their speech. Old mothers! as they pass with slow timed step, Their trembling hands cling gently to youth's strength; Sweet mothers! as they pass, one sees again Old garden-walks, old roses, and old loves. "Just Set." (SUCCCEB.) A man who does not like work very well was asked how he managed to spend his time. "Well," he said, "some days I just set and think, and other days I just set." A great many people "just set," without thinking. Mental laziness is fatal to all growth. Many people never think down deeply into any subject. They just browse around on the surface. They have never trained themselves to concentrate vigorously, to hold the mind tenaci ously upon one subject; their think ing is of the hop-skip-and-jump or der. This desultory surface mulling sort of brain action is not real think ing. To really think, we must focus the mind upon one subject and hold it there. One reason why the majority of people lead such superficial live.s is because their minds are not trained to think deeply and broadly. They do not go far enough into subjects to get a comprehensive view of them. Their thinking is so superficial that their whole lives are shallow. It does not matter how good a brain one has, before it can accomp lish anything worth while, it must be trained until concentration becomes an automatic habit. One of the great advantages of a college course is the training of the mind to think ' logi cally and deeply.
