For the life of young Carl was a life of labor, and bis labor was love, a love that hal lowed and illumined and glorified his toil. Pure, in the midst of the temp tations of youth; diligent in busi ness though pleasure beloved to the primrose path; forgetful of self, though life wa9 young aud fair and sweet, this boy loved father and mother and home, and spoke no word thet might not be uttered to her who taught him speech, and did no thiug that could not be mentioned in that home temple sanctified by a mothei's prayers. O, young man, caught in the maelstrom of pleasure and vice; forgetful it not scornful of maternal afiectiou, I would point you to the example of this young life! If there is anything finite more beau tiful, more inspiring than Carl's devotion to his mother the story has never been told to me. He was her kuight errant and champ ion always. The fruits of his tod he prized only that they might minister to her comfort. Had it been possible, he would have shielded her liom every care and anxiety, thinking it a privilege thus vicariously to bear her bur dens.

One of the first cases ever handled bv a member of our bar, who has long si nee gained prominence, was "pearing" for an old family darkey, who had been indicted for shooting a neighbor's dog.

A mooted question recently among some town gallants was whether it was not just as propei for an escort to leave a young lady at the entrance to a public entertainment as to walk with her to the door of the ladie's dressing-room. Much feeling was engendered in discussing the proper method of introducing cur girls to strangers. It was voted unanimously that the young ladies should be led around and introduced to the voung men, who were not re- quired to rise. 1 his is a pro gressive, strenuous and revo lutionary age.

In the notice of Mrs. Waits Walton's death in hist week's ssue of The News-Herald it was erroneously stated that she had been for several years con nected with the school for the deaf. For two years prior to her marriage, Mrs. Walton, then Miss Sargent, was the efficient and beloved teacher at the Mission of the Good Shepherd, where her loss is most sincerely deplored. From early youth a devout Christain, her life had ever been consecrated to the Master's work, and when called away, to her, a "good and faith- ul servant," death was but a summons to enter into the joy of her Lord. Her bright, attractive person-lity, and simple, cordial man ners won her many friends, but only the few who knew her more intimately could fully appreciate her many sterling good qualities. To the widowed mother, sorrowing in her distant home, and to the husband so sadly and suddenly bereaved 'we tender our most heartfelt sympathy. A FlilENI) .. & M.

Once there was a little girl who was always saying naughty things, and a wise fairy cast an enchant ment upon her, so that each time she spoke noxious lizards, snakes, toads and other reptiles seemed to leap from her mouth. And there was another little gir who was always saying nice things, and the same wise fairy so wove her spells that diamonds and rubies and money fell from the girl's mouth when she would talk. And what became of these girls? The first one was engaged by an astute dime museum manager and uecame 1 abuiously rich. The second was gobbled up by a trust that made her. talk herself to death.
