d'nt Mean To."' Th two ways all of us do hard and evil in the world. Some of us do evil by planning and scheming. It is done viciously and with malice aforethought. The man plans to kill, and he kills a man. Another plans to steal, and he takes what does not belong to him. Another wishes to ruin somebody's fair and good name, and he slanders with a snake's poison in his talk. And all of us recognize these criminals by sight. We refuse to accept their excuses, and we use laws to punish and correct them, if possi ble. But what about the other man who does evil and wrong, day by day and year bý year, and offers as his only excuse, I didn't mean to?" His evil and wrong are very bad because people are not watching him, If he did mean to db wrong. people would be on the look-out and ward off some of his ugly hits. He is a donker, but we cannot excuse him be cause he has long ears. 1. Life is made up of meaning to do things. It is the inherent power of a man's will to MEAN to dbthings. To ...

Two Gentlemen Of The Old School. A recent issue of the Times Picayune brings the sad intelli gence of the passing away of Dr. J. J. Alford, of Washington Par ish, La., and Judge T. E. Tate, Osyka, Miss., two men whom I count ita privilege to have known, and with one of whom to have been intimately associated. The character of these men and their achievements deserve more than a brief press notice, and the hand of a sorrowing friend offers the following sketch as a token of appreciation and affection. Nearly thirty-six years, after a twenty-five mile horseback ride, the writer drew rein at the front gate of Dr. Alford in Washing ton Parish. To the stranger's hail, a tall and stalwart man re spended, and invited the tired rider to dismount and partake of his hospitality. The young man, fresh from college, had decided to make a start in life by teach ing school, and had been directed to Dr. Alford as the most promi nent man of that section, and one who was deeply interested in everythi...
