So he carefully baited a little fishhook, tied a short line to it. swallowed the hook, and tied the line to hi, button hIle. Then he waited for a bite. By and by he thought he had one and yanked the line; the hook caught in his throat and had to be dugout. He didn't estch the worm. Every nation, every city, every town, every community is just what the people make it. A live, progressive people will build up a prosperous town or city where the natural conditions are even unfavor able, while a careless, indolent popula tion will accomplish little, however great the natural advantages of their lo calities may be.

p, According to the last census we had in this country in 1890, 980 daily news* papers with a circulation of 3,637,424. Since 18'14 the number of daily news papers has more than dou',led and we now have not less than 2,0' 0, with a cir culation of aboutt 5,000(,000. The I'nited States has more newspapersthan England, France and Germany combined, and more than all the world outside of those three nations. The lIaleigh (N. C.) Yevse says: "We are glad to see that the long-preached doctrine of less cotton and me,re corn is finally having efect in the South. The crop report of the Federal Department of Agriculture for the past year shows that this is so. The movement has been slower than was desired by some, but it has been steady, and this sort of progress is always the best. It would certainly not do for the Southern farmer to abma don cotton altogether, as has been de manded by some theorists."

WORDS OF WISDOM. A learned fool is more foolish than an ignorant fool. Self love exaggerates both our faults and our virtues. We never live: we are always in the expectation of living. 4;ood manners and good morals are sworn friends and firm allies. Violent excitement exhausts the mind and leaves it withered and sterile. The superior man wishes to be slow in his words. and earnest in his con Iuct. llunhlreds would never have known want if they had not first known w' a.te. There is nothing that so retines the face and mind as the presence of great thoughts. Many people are busy in the world gathering together a handful of thorns to sit upon. A nman's action is only a picture book of his creed. lie does, after all, what he believes. Wealth may or may not be within thy reach. What matter it, since virtue is ever at thy command. Apphlication is the price to be paid for mental acquisition. To have the harvest we mlpst sow the seed. ('ount your resources; learn what you are not fit for, a...
