also pending before the senate of
New. York compelling the school
authorities of that state to furnish all
the schools with flags, which are to be
flung to the breeze during the
time the scholars are at work. A
'bill of simrrlar nature was introduced
in the last Pennsylvania legislature
but inet with defeat. In Chicago fligs
fly above all the public school build

and many other large citiesin different
parts of the north.
It is impossible to ascertain just
how much patriotism is awakened by
wich display of stars and stripes, but
doubtless excellent service is thus done.
There are many who believe that it
would be proper to display the ftags

only on anniversaries ' of great events
with which all Americans should be
familiar. The unfurling of the flag
then would cause the children natu
rally to inquire what event was being
eoinmemoraled, and they would take
pains very likely to hunt the matter
This suggestion is a very good one,
and if carried out would keep the stars
and stripes floating from the school
building at all times. Our nation's
history is made up of great incidents
worthy ofcomraemoration. Th$re is
scarcely a day that is not the anniver
sary of some event that the rising
young American- should be acquainted

made up of thirteen stripes and forty-
two stars, be placed within the con

In the school law of Ohio there is
' a requirement which makes it neces
sary for the teacher to instruct the
pupil as to the effects of spirituous
liquors upon the human system. The
statutes do not define how the infor
mation . shall be imparted, and one
teacher concluded that there could be
ncbetter practical demonstration than
to let his scholars sample a little
ix-hiaky. Accordingly he took a bottle
in the national beverage to school
writh him and invited his scholars up
to take a smile. They went home with
- loacjed - breaths and told their parents
yrlvZt had ' occurred. To say there
was" an uproar in that village would be
putting it lightly. The teacher plead
ed the indefiaiteness of the law and
good intentions on his part, butit was
useless; he had to go. The people of
that burg will now smploy a teacher
who will endeavor to explain the ef
fects of whisky by means of charts.

man to read it. - I

your trial is as nothing compared!
with mine. You only have to
read it once; in point of fact you
need not do that; you can skip it. 1
Now look at me, I've got to
think it out first and argue-myself
into the belief that it's worth print
ing. Then I write it; read it over;
tear it up; rewrite it; reread it; cor
rect a lot of errors in it; discover
that I have left out the only good
part in it; interline that; send it to
the printer; have it returned to
me in proof; find that he has
omitted the funny part, too; inter
line that again; read it again when
the paper is out, and discover that
the gleam of brightness 'is still
missing. Shall I strike your name
from the list? '

A colored woman employed asj
a domestic in the family of a
farmer in Cooper county, Kansas,
not until a lew days ago discover
ed that she is not a slave. The
farmer took her -into the state
from the south before the war.
She was then a slave and nothing
regarding the results of the war
or of the emancipation proclama
tion was ever told her.- On the
death of the farmer a few weeks
ago she removed to another place,
where for the first time she learn
ed that she enjoys the boon of
freedom. This seems almost in
credable, but probably the farmer
never heard of the emancipation
proclamation himself. It is said
to be a fact that in some parts of
the country there can be found
democrats who continue to vote
for Andrew Jackson for president.

Whenever the horse sees a pig

back of the neck and shakes it to
death, mucb as- a dog would shake

Cured by Cuticura
If had known of the CrmcoRA Reme
dies t jventy eight years ago it would have
saved me 8200.00 (two-hnudrd dollars) and
an immense amount of suffering. Myitis
ease (psoriasis) commenced on my head in a
spot not larger than a cent. It spread
rapidly all over my body and got under my
nails. The scales would drop on ot uie all
the time, and my suffering was endless and
without relief. One thousand dollars would
not tempt me to have this disease over
again. I am a poor man but feel rich to be
relieved of what some of the doctors said
was leprosy, some ringworm, psoriasis, etc.
I took . . . and . - Sarsaparillas over one
year and a halC but no cure. I cannot
praise the Upticura Kemedies too much.
They have made my skin us clear and free
from scales as a baby's. All I used of them
were three boxes of CtrricrRA, and three
bottles of CcTicrRA Resolvent, and two
cakes of (JrTICURA Soap. If you had been
here and said you would have cured me for
$200.00. vu would have had the money.
I looked like the picture in your book of
psoriasis (picture number two, "How to
Cure Skin diseases"), but now 1 am as clear
as any person ever was. Through force of
