SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT. 8, 1888.
A few days ago, Mrs. Lowry, of
Snow, Dooly county, attempted to
commit suicide by taking^orpbine
and strycninc. Before taking the poi
son she wrote her obituary, at last
accounts it was thought that the doc
tors would pull her through all right.
He who is truly brave will not only
spring.to encounter obstinate obsta
cles Ad to do daring deeds; he will
also be bold in attacking wrong and
misery whenever they appear, and
strong in resisting his own dekircs
and impulses whenever they conflict
with a higher law.
A little miss wanted some ice
cream the other evening. She woiild
not accept her mother’s refusal, and
us n last resort she was sent to her
father. The question was put to
him and he answered, “Not much.”
She went back to her mother and
told her that her papa said “she
could have a little.”
Dr. P. H. Nichols was tried . in
Cummings, Ga., a few days ago for
larceny after trust and convicted.
Judge Brown made his sentence as
light ns possible, giving him one
year in the penitentiary. John C,
Nichols, of Atlanta, appeared against
him. One brother appearing against
another in a criminal case, and they
both gray-headed, is something
which very rarely occurs.
“By an unfortunate typographical
error,” says^a Dakota newspaper,
“we were made to say last week that
our distinguished townsman, Profes
sor Kennedy, was about to rig up a
nobby baboon on her wedding trip
across the prairies. What we meant
to say was a nobby balloon. Wc
write this with our left hand, while
lying on pur spare bed, with eye
closed and the other hand painted,'
and an inverted chair across our
stomach for a writing table. The
extent of our regret for the blunder
may bo measured by the difficulties
we have surmounted in penning
A story of a most oxtrordinary
case of petrification is received from
St. Johns, a small town, west of To
ronto. Several years ago a Mi’s.
Chnppcle died and was buried. She
was a copulcnt person, weighing over
-00 pounds. Two years later her
husband died and the body was
interred beside Mrs. Chnppcle. Re
cently relatives of the couple wished
to remove the remains to another
burial ground. When unearthed it
took six men to move the coffins, and
it was fouud that both bodies had
turned to stone, that of the woman
being perfectly petrified and weigh
ing eleven hundred pounds.
The popular impression that cutting
the hair short tends to incrcusu its
growth is doubted by the Herald of
Health. It says that “women rarely
become bald; yet they never cut their
hair off, as do men. May not their
immunity from a shining pate be
partly due to the fact that they do not
patronize the barber, nor wear tight
headgear? If, in early life, ouryonng
men would look after their scalps,even
while they do not appear to need at
tention, it might save them the trou
ble of looking after them in sorrow
at a later period, when it will do less
good. If they do not, the time will
come when we shall have a race of
human beings without hair.”
NOW HAS FAITH.
I had been troubled all winter with
Cold and pain in the chest and got no
relief from remedies recommended by
Druggists and Physicians. At same
time 1 saw advertising Dr. liosauko's
Cough and I.ung Syrup. I had but
little faith but thought to try it as a
last resort. Now 1 believe even more
than they tell me of its curative qual
itics. (From The News, Elizabeth

Wry steam boilers explode.
A boiler explodes because it is not
able to withstand the pressure to
which it is at the time subjected.
This condition of weakness may be
caused by any one of a number of
causes, as follows: 1. Bad design, as
when the boiler has not been prop
erly strengthened by braces; or a
deficient water, space prevents the
proper circulation of th» water. 2.
Bad workmanship, the riveting or
other work of construction being
done hastily or by incompetent work
men. 3. Bad material, blisters in
the plate, etc. 4. Excessive pres
sure, caused by recklessness of the
engineer, or by defective careless
ness of the engineer in allowing
steam guages, or inoperative safety-
valve. 5. Overheating of the plates,
caused lW carelessness of the engineer
in allowing the water supply to get
low and then pumping^mupon the
too great heated plates. fWR.ccumm
lation of scale, mud, or otherdeposit,
which prevents the water gaining ac
cess to the iron. This causes the
seams to leak and the crown sheet
to bulge or come down, and when
this occurs the boiler is in a very
dangerous condition, liable to ex
plode at ohy time. There is really
no mystery about boiler explosions
they are always caused by one or
more of the above causes. If all
boilers were of good design, work
mnnship and material, and were
managed by none but sober, intelli
gent and experienced engineers, such
a thing as a boiler explosion would
be almost unknown.
a strange case.

The Rev. Mr. Leys, a venerable
and much respected minister of the
United Presbyterian Church, of Scot
land, is now in Carlton jail, Edin-
bugh, for refusing to obey an order
of the court of session to deliver up
his grandchildren to their father.
Tlie father, it nj&neajs, has cqme un
der tho^nfluencWf the Roman Cath
olic Church, and the old gentleman
objects to give up the children be
cause he 1ms hitherto charged him
self with their support and be
cause he is unwilling that they
should be brought up in the Catho
lic faith. Of course the law is against
him. Mr. Leys has been urged to
yield by some of his best friends;
but be cannot. His case is com
manding much interest throughout
Great Britain, and Mr. Leys lias the
sympathy not only of his attached
congregation but of the entire relig
ious public. All efforts to have him
released have so far failed.
The following from an exchange
abounds in sound advice, and should
be perused carefully and thought
If you live in a town or neighbor
hood be a citizen, don’t be a churl.
Don't forget that your business de
pends upon the business of your fel
low-citizens. Don’t judge the idea
that you can be perfectly independ
ent. Don't forget that the success
of the compiunity in which you live
depends upon the success of individ
unis. One bad atom taints the next
one to it and so on through the whole
mass. Keep this in mind. Don’t be
a bad atom. When a thing which
promises good for town or neighbor
hood comes up, don't sit at home and
read about it or go out and blow
against it. Put your shoulder to the
wheel with the rest. Contribute
your mite, if it be only a cheerful
word, but give more, if possible. If
you do not intend to help, don't kick
and predict a failure. Don’t be a
kicker. Remember a kicker is a mule.
If you . have no hopeful advice to
give, don't kick and attempt to dis
courage others who have.
