OUR PAPER. • Tlie first of January last it was suggested by one of the most active members of the Lee Literary Society , that the publication of small monthly paper would greatly promote our interest. At a meeting held on the first Friday night in January, the President appointed a committee of three whose duty it should be to ascertain what it would cost to have a certain number of copies printed; and to suggest the names of two members of the society as editors. The next week following, the committee handed in their report, and the persons suggested as editors were unanimously elected. We did not think best to start the paper at once ; from the fact all know, that students never have but little money. We thought it decidly best to put our soliciting agent to work that we might have the matter thorou...

THE INSTITUTE JEWEL. Suffolk, Va., February, 1880. BESIDE THE STILE. We both walked slowly o’er the yellow grass, Beneath the sunset sky; And then he climbed the stile 1 did not pass, And there we said good-by. He paused one moment. I leaned on the stile, And faced the hazy lane ; But neither of us spoke until we both Just said good-by again. And I went homeward to our quaint old farm, And he went on his way ; And he has never crossed that field again, From that time to this day. 1 wonder if he ever gives a thought To what he left behind— As I start sometimes, dreaming that I hear A footstep in the wind. It he had said but one regretful word, Or 1 had shed a tear, He would not go alone about the world, Nor 1 sit lonely here. Alas 1 our hearts were full of angry pride. And love was choked in strife ; And so the stile, beyond the yellow grass, Stands straight across our life. SOMETHING TO SAY. The changes of the weather furnish many with a supply of words, when in company with those w...

Throw to the breeze all yonr.embletus of woe ; Heboid what a noble mind here in o’erthrown — A fair idol shattered—a brave spirit floijn ! Gone in the dawn with no gentle good-bye. Gone, 'mid the withered haves lonely to die, Under the pitiless, bleak wintry sky, Alone, by his own hand, to suffer and die. O, rash was the deed when this tired pilgrim fell. Wild the soul's flight, but to him it s emed well; Weary of turragil, bewildered, depressed, Even home lost its charm and the grave promis ed rest. In the golden garden of youth he stood, Generous, gentle* and brave, and good ; Noon’s sunlight kissed him with kindliest rays None knew J -ir ■ *>»«» none pb praise But over his spirit a shadow fell, A mystery deeper than tongue can tell, A blight so bitter, a cloud so drear, That t’ was well Death stood with his sickle near...

What a glorious fact it is that there is one life that can be held up before the eyes of humanity 7 as a pattern ! There were lips that never spake unkindness, that never uttered an untruth; there were eyes that never looked aught but love and purity and bliss; there were arms that never closed against wretchedness or penitence; there was a bosom that never throbbed with sin, nor ever was excited by an unholy impulse; there was a man free from all undue selfishness, and whose life was spent in going about doing good. There was One who loved all mankind and loved them more than himself, and gave himself to die that they might live/ there was One who went into the gates of death, that the gates might never hold us in ; there was one who lay in the grave to take its damp, its coldness, its chill a...

THE INSTITUTE JEWEL. Suffolk, Ya., May, 1880. BOYS WANTED. Boys of spirit, boys of will, Boys of muscle, brain, and power, Fit to cope with anything— These are wanted every hour. Not the weak and whining drones, That all troubles magnify— Not the watchword of “I can’t,” But a nobler one “I’ll try.” Do what’er you have to do With a true and earnest zeal; Bend your sinews to the task— Put your shoulders to the wheel. Though your duty may be hard, Look not on it as an ill; If it bean honest task, Do it with an honest will. At the anvil, or the farm, Wheresoever you may be— From your future efforts, boys, Comes a nation’s destiny. — Selected. ANSWER THE LITTLE PEOPLE. Children are undoubtedly very troublesome at tunes in asking questions, and should, without doubt, be taught not to interrupt conversation in company; but this resolution made, we question the policy of withholding an answer at any time from the active mind which must find so many unexplained daily and hourly mysteries.

How many of us have ships at sea Freighted with wishes and hopes and fears, Tossing about on the waves, while we Linger and wait on the shore lor years, Gazing afar through the distance dim And sighing, Will ever our ships come in'.' We sent them away with laughter and song The decks were white and the sails were new. The fragrant breezes bore them along, I be sea was calm and the sky was blue, And we thought as we watched them sail away Of the joy they would bring us some future day.

THE INSTITUTE JEWEL. PUBLISHED MONTHLY AT SUFFOLK, VA. T ERMS: One Year 30 Cents Six Months 20 Cents E. A. KICKS, ) J Editors. J. W. BARRETT, ! Suffolk, Ya., November, 1880. WOMAN’S MENIAL CAPACITY, Is it equal to that of man? Some members of the “sterner sex” contend that it is not, and do not hesitate to arrogate to themselves, or their sex, the proud distinction of being endow ed b.y the Creator with a larger amount of brain power than is bestowed upon woman, “God's first, best gift to man.” Any why? Because, forsooth, in the early ages of the world woman was kept in darkness and ignorance, and had not the opportunity of improving her mind and developing the brain given unto her. But as the black clouds of ignorance and superstition broke and tied away before the glorious sunlight of religion and liberty of mind and thought, woman rose in the scale of general intelligence and assumed her proper and legitimate sphere. Some contend that because woman has not attained unto such high...

No, don’t try to explain, John—you can’t the matter mend - ; For I am heartily tired, John, and nearly sick of life, I’d never make you happy, so I’d best not be your wife.” “Just wait a minute, Jennie, and heed what I’ve to say! You know, or ought to know, that it never was my way To treat my true love harshly, or say to her what’s wrong. But I wish you wouldn’t flirt with that old Captain Strong.” “I won’t be taken to task, John, every time 1 stir! And there’s your cousin Clare—l know you flirt with her!

The woman was old, and ragged and gray, And bent with the chill of the winter's day ; The street was wet with the recent snow, And the woman’s feet were aged and slow,. She stood at the crossing and waited long, Alone, uncared for, amid a throng Of human beings who pasted her by, Nor heeded the glance of her anxious eye. Down the st~ect with laughter and shout, Glad in the freedom of school let out, Came the boys like a f ock of ■ beep, Hailing oiled w idw «■’ !•- ; Past the woman so old and gray'-, Hastened the children on their way. Nor offered a helping hand to her, So meek, so timid, afraid to stir Lest the carriage wheels or horses’ feet Should crowd her down in the slippery street. At last came one of the merry troon— The gayest laddie of all the group. He paused beside her and whispered low ; ‘‘l’ll help you across if you wish to go.” Her aged hand on his strong young...

It costs us nothing to be polite, and it is as easy to say a kind word as it is to speak harshly or impolitely. True politeness is essential to success in all the vocations of life. Take a list of professional men ; glance over them and note the successful ones, and see if true politeness is not one of the virtues with which they are all adorned. Who ever heard of a successful merchant who cared not whether he was polite or impolite? I could cite a number of stories with True Politeness as the hero, but shall content myself with noticing only one here. JL is tofu 01 Stephen Girard that he was on one occasion walking through one of Philadelphia’s grandest parks, arrayed in a very common attire, and suddenly confronting two young men, he asked their opinion in regard to the weather. One of th...
