The average price the state receives per capita under the five year, contracts is $100 per an num. The five year contracts will expire in March, 1904. When these contsacts were made this price was considered excellent. Since then on account of the scar city of white labor and the great demand for laborers in those in open door, but making no move to enter. ^“Oorne in, my little man, if you wish to,” Said the Sexton. “No, thank you,'” sa*id the boy, “T know wnat you've got in there.” ' “I haven’t anythihg that little boys mayn’t see. Come in.” “I’d rather not.” And the'ju venile Theodore cast a sweeping, dustries in which convietsare em* and somewhat apprehensive glance around the pews and galleries-and bounded off to play again. Still the lad kept returning once in a while and peeping in. When he went home that day he told his mother of the sexton’s invitation and his unwillingness to accept it. “But why didn’t you go in, my dear?” she asked. “It is the house of God,' '’but .there is no harm in entering it quietly and looking about.’’ With some shyness the little fellow confessed that he was afraid to go in because the zeal might jump out at him from un der a pew or somewhere. “The zeal? What is the zeal?” the mother inquired. “Why,” exclaimed Theodore, “I suppose it is some big animal like a dragon or an aligator. I went there to church last Sunday with uncle R—and I heard the minister read from the Bible about the zeal, and it , frightened me. Down oamo the concordance from the library shelf, and one after another of the texts contain ing the word “zeal” was read to the child, whose , eyes suddenly gew big and his voice excited as he said. “That’s it—the last you read?” US' was Psalm ixix:9, “For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.”, —**•«&*— “Some time ,ago my daughter caught a severe cold. She complain ed of pains in her chest and had a bad coggh. I gave her chamber lain's .Cough Remedy according to directions and' in two days she was well and able to go to school. I have usbd this remedy in my family for the past seven years and have never known it to fail," says James Pren- dergast, merchant, Annato Bay, Ja maica, West India Islands. The pains in the chest- indicated an ap proaching attack of pneumonia which in this instance was undoubt edly warded off by Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy. It counteracts any tendency of a cold toward pneumo nia.

It is said that some bf these original contractors have subleased their convicts and are receiving as much as $240 per capita * for each con vict. The youngest convict is eleven years of age and the oldest seven ty-seven . The married convicts amount to 1,006 and the single 1,240. Those who cun read and write number 1,028, those who oan read only, 202, and those wholly illit erate, 1,015. There are eighty-five women -• in the penitentiary—seventy-nine blacks and six whites. --"Exchange “Lie, steal, drink and swear,” is the motto of a oertain Kansas newspaper; and its' hiotto is thus explained by tho editor: “When you lie, let it be down to pleas ant dreams; when you steal, let it be away from immoral associ ates ; when you drink, let it be pure water; when you swear, let it Be that you will patronize your home paper, jiay your subscription promptly, and not send your job work to some other office.” Catarrh Cannot Bo Cured with local applications, as they Butting This and That Together.

Putting, for an example, the fact that there were only abouV half as many colored people in tne United States-when the negfo was set free and “clothed with' citizenship” as there are now, to-, gether with the fact, the Congress just met does not include a single ! negro member, is an instuctive j thing.
