C^^H?c^man mit 5o?t|rm - TUESDAY, AUGUST 9. J. A. MOOD. M. D. \ 2 D. B. ANDERSON, }EwT0ES THE LIEN LAW. Many leading journals of the State are paw urging a repeal of the lien law. Although no investigation has been made, which approximates accuracy or completeness, with reference to the comparative condition of the hired la? borer and the farmer working under a lien, the question seems to have been fully decided in the minds of some ap? parently thoughtful men. It is a pity that those of influence, to whom the public look for wise opinions, and whose ideas are blindly followed by a large proportion of the masses, should so hastily urge so important a measure. To construct an argument upon prob? able data, as though they were verified j truths, is to reach a conclusion which is ! generally erroneous, and is, at beet, but a mere probability. Most of thc conclusions which the j ^opponents of the Hen law have reached, are based upon just such data, but are j put forward as truths in sup...

But like many other words, the term is used with a differeut signification, and anything cr anybody may be called a "fossil." Now as for us, we are very anxious to be delivered from fossilized human beiugs. As a rule, they stand in the way of progress and enlightenment, and are a thorn lo the flesh to all who come into contact with them. They made up their'mind3 forty years ago or perchance only ten years ago, for some fossils are quite young-aud since that day no change of opinion has ever been allowed. Every question of life, morals, and theology has been settled, and now with them there are no open questions; and if you-unfortunate one ! should chance to say your mind is not made up on some questions, or if you should chance to say your convictions ou a. certain point are undergoing a change, these wise f...

RELIGION, MORALS AND PHILOSOPHY. Rev. O. C. BROWN. Editor. MY NEIGHBOR'S BABY. -0-" Across in my neighbor's window, With its dropings of satin and lace, I see 'neath his Sowing ringlets, A baby's innocent face. His feet in crimson slippers, Are tapping the polished glass, And the crowd in the street lo-.k npward, And nod and smile as they pass. Jnst here in my cottage window, Catching flies in the sun, With a patched and faded apron, Stands my own little one. His face is as pure and handsome As the baby's over tbe wav, And he keeps my heart from breaking At my toiling, erery day. Sometimes when the day is ended, And ? sit in the dusk to rest, With the face of my sleeping darling Hogged close to my lonely breast, I pray that my neighbor's baby May not catch heaven's roses all, Bnt that some may crown the forehead Of my ?OTed one as they fall: And when I draw the stockings From bis little weary feet, ** And kiss the rosy dimples In bis limbs-,- so round and sweet I think of tbe dainty...
