PER YEAR IX
TOWN VS COUNTY.
One serious obstacle tq, the cortlial
relations that should exist between all
classes of American life is the unreas
oning antagonism that so often exists
between the town and the country
Why this should exist is hard to sec
in view of the fact that each is largely
dependent upon the other in many re
lations of life. Unfortunately, how
j ever, it is a fact with which we have
to deal when considering any matter
of importance to people of any given
section. This prejudice shows itself
in political life, in social life and "even
in business. It frequently manifests
itself in a conviction ot the country
man that the town man is always
watching for an opportunity to "do"
him. He is convinced that all existent
evil has its origin in the towns. The
town man. lo his mind, exists for no
other purpose than to prey on? the
aimers. On the other hand it fre-
K-ntly occurs that the people of theii'i' what is the correct name as long
town become imoued with the belief
that the country people "have it in
for them." Thus are the relations be
tween the two in a straine-d condition,
and in many cases even the most ordi
nary business relations are hindered
and blocked by this unreasoning and
unreasonable jealousy. Perhaps you
say the picture is overdrawn. It is
not. The writer has seen and is fa
miliar with just such communities.
And, unfortunately, in many instances
the prejudice is well founded. It i a
fact that the clannish spirit is the
last to die of all the savage instincts
of man. "My clan and my class mean
everything to me, and your clan and
your class are my natural enemies."
That is the sub-conscious reasoning of
many men even yet and of men in
whom we would least expect it. Is
there, you ask, a remedy? Yes, there
is one, but it is an individual remedy.
That is charity that charity which
Covereth a multitude of sins" that
charity which "Thinketh no evil."
Like many other causes of friction
between people, this condition grows
from slight causes, and a little tolera
tion and charity at the right time ami
place will go a long way toward
remedying matters. Also stress the
fact that the two elements are mu
tually dependent upon each other
their interests one. Let each say to
himself, as said another of old, "We be
brethren." Ever try a genuine dose
of charity toward your neighbor?

It pains us to learn of the death
of Mrs. Tanner, wife of Senator John
M. Tanner, who died Sunday evening
from the effects of serious burns she
received Thursday, when her clothing
caught fire from a gas range, while in
the hilt-hen telephoning, an account of
which appeared in this paper at the
time. It is indeed a- r.ad affair, and
the entire newspaper fraternity oT the
state deeply sympathize, with Senator
Tanner in the loss of a noble and
loving wife. The writer met Mrs.
Tanner 'luring the session of the leg
islature in the winter of 1808-0, and
we though c she was one of the most
Ufcnial ladies wc ever' met, and her
death is a great loss to the husband
and the children. The reward for
such women is a home in heaven.

night to throw himself into Ike har

he passed a mission. They were sing
ing "Rock of Ages." It had hvun his
mother's favorite hymn. He went in,
was converted and "beat back" again
to his old place in the business world.
A religious magazine invited its
readers to send in lists of their fav
oiite hymns and 3,500 responded.
"Rock of Ages" was named first by
all but 283 of them.
This hymn was a favorite of Mr.
Gladstone and he tran dated it into
Italian. It inspired Signor IJonghi to
write the life of Christ in his own
tongue, hundreds of thousands of cop
ies of which have. been printed. It
has been translated into many dif

the world, and will be sim?, probably,
