The Oil Home.
I am loaning to-niht to be there,
At the old home that I miss,
Just to hear the lisp of the little ones.
And to feel'the mid-night kiss
That my mother is waiting to nive me
" She ItsU for my step at the door ;
Though her old enrs are tailing I'm
certain , -She'd
hea inn and meet me once
I am longing to-nipht to feel them
A pair of soft arms at the cate,
Vhen the long, tiresome journey is
To greet those X know for me wait;
Just to know that, someone who loves
Oomeg to clasp me aaiu by the

because universal intelligence is

our republican form of govern

here that I am heartily and entire
ly in favor of .i compulsory seiiool
law m North Carolina. 1 believe
the Stale has done only a part, of
her dut y when she provides her
chi dron with schools. She should
require then t attend these
schools for at least four months
in even year, between the ages of
I) and 11. J believe the time has
come w hen every t'jachr in Bla
den county, and every teacher in
N.irth Carolina, should begin to
agitate this question.
As 1 said an educated citizen

Not the education alone which
enables a man to earn a livelihood,
but rather that which enables him
to become a useful member of
socio. y, and especially that which
tits him to properly perform his
duties to his government and to
his fd owinen, .
So it is the patriotic citizen we
need. But, "love of country"
must be preceded by knowledge of
country. Can wo love that of
which we are ignorant?
Therefore I would urge upon
you t he need of laving nuire at
tention to tie .study of civil gov
ernment in your schools.
This can be 1.,-gun with the

In this way the youth of our

language of Benjamin Harrison,
that "Citizenship has its duties
as well as iU privileges. The first
is fhat we give our energies and

Legislature in 11)01, that one day
t:i each and every year should be
known as '-Carolina Day," and
should be celebrated as such by
all our schools, by devoting the
day to I ho consideration of some
topic of our State history, was a
wise one indeed. It has already
