THE BEST REMEDY
Diseases 'of the Throat and Inn
Diseases of the pulmo
nary organs are so prev
alent and fatal, that a
safe and reliable remedy
fur them is invaluable
to every community.
Ayeu's (Jherky Peo
Tort al is such a remedy,
and no other so emi
nently merits the confi
dence of the public. It
is a scientific combina
tion of the medicinal
principles and curative
virtues of the finest
drugs, chemically unit
ZUr cd, to insure the jreat
iii est possible cfficiencv
PECTORAL. "J uniformity of re-
suits, w iin. ii x ii txuit,
plivsicians as well as invalids to use it with
coiiK.k-nce. It is the most reliable remedy
for diseases of the throat and lungs that sci
ence has produced. It strikes at the foun
dation of all pulmonary aiseases, affording
prompt and certain relief, and is adapted to
patients of any age or cither sex. Being
very palatable, the youngest children take
it without difficulty. In the treatment of
ordinary Coughs, Colds, Sore Throat,
Ilrtmchitis, Influenza, Clergyman'
fcore Throat, Asthma, Croup, and Ca
tarrh, the effects of Aver's Cherry Peo
tobai. are magical, aud multitudes are an
nually preserved from serious illness by its
tun.'iy and faithful use. . It should be kept
at hnd in every household, for the pro
tection it affords in sudden attacks. In
v liooping-coiish and Consumption
there is no other remedy bo efheacious,
ootJung, and helpful.
The marvellous cures which Ayer's
Cni:iittr Pectokal has effected all over the
world are a suflicient guaranty that it will
continue to produce the best results. An
impartial trial will convince the most scepti
cal of its wonderful curative powers, as well
at of its superiority over all other prepara
9tions for pulmonary complaints.
Ei:iinent physicians in all parts of the
country, knowing its composition, recom
mend Ayer's Cheery Pectoral to invalids.
and prescribe it in their practice. The test
of half a century has proved its absolute
certainty to cure all pulmonary complaints
not already beyond the reach of human aid

Our Foremothert .
Dow tba vlita of the century.
Through its dim and shadowy years.
Teeming with the r toil and struggles,
Joy and sorrows, hoi and far,
Come the voice of noble women.
Who, with Cithers, husbands, brothers.
Kept the faith rtnd fought the battle
For the right our brave fore mothers.
Women who, when freedom fettered.
Shook its chains, defiance hurled;
'Twos their bunds that lit the beacon.
Theirs the Hag of truth unfurled.
Theirs, ih.- fingers swiftand skillful.
Spun the ll.iv as white as (now;
Wore the doth that clothed the armies,
W lili-h for freedom struck the blow.
When the cl.itids of warfare darkened,
And the country's woe seemed near,
Thei s, the I. rave hearts, full of coil rag.
That the dim lliii-,- heled to cheer.
Theirs, the heart that true mid tender.
Knew no faltering or distrust;
Cheered the hopeless, soothed the weary,
With their words of faith and trust.
If to-day those n .ble matrons
Sisters, wives who sacrificed
All they had for homes and country,
- ( ottbl from their long sleep arise,
lean fancy they would calmly.
After their iuaint fashion spe.tk
Something to the rain and giddy.
Word of wisdom te the weak:

Freedom r.ow to ! oc dare ;
Look not on tho great world's couflict.

But with heart and hands he doing
Something toalt.inrc the race."

The tenement-house, was one excep
tionally desirable and situated in a
quiet and decidedly respectable local

ond floor was also pleasant and not
unhandsome, with its ceilings that
looked like a lnie slab of unpolished
white marble, walls neatly covered
with an excellent quality of paper of
rosy jrray tint modestly 'spangled with,
nondescript flowers and foliago of
bright yellow gilt ami dull green
bronze. The furniture of tho apart
ment was harmonious ami graceful.
It was unstained oak upholstered in
brocatel which, inexpensive though it
was, still was effective and pretty in
its design uf given nnd gold. Several
small, really line and taste It i My framed
chromos adorned the walls, and upon
the mantel were cueap va-es ana cun
ning 'little plaster staaics. Two
stiiinv windows shaded by lace cur
tains and shutters discreetly '"bowed,"
opened upon a tinv yam where the
grass was permitted to grow all fresh
nnd sweet aud untroden. A third
window opened upon an exceedingly
narrow alley that scemeu to be so many
feet of waste ground, ns very oddly
there was neither stables nor shea? nor
rookeries in tne rear, unit ii cnueu at a
liih, blank, wooden wall, which in

Beside this window, the shutters

Indignantly sho glanced at a win

of the tall house on the other side of

blooming oleander trees behind the
fluttering curtains aud the glimpse of
a large, gaunt man with a ragged

complimentary to my silly self. I
should congratulate Mr. Searles for
his gall t n try."
Susie's ii- ighbor this Mr. Searles
was her bete noire, tho torment of her
daily existence. For a few hours ev
ery afternoon for months they had
been vis-a-vis, he busy with his books
before his desk, and she manipulating
mock roses- and liteless pansies, until
at last he had. como to assume ac
quaintance as a something assured and
altogether undeniable, and many a
time she had fouud a bouquet of fresh
flowers or a basket of choice, rich
fruit, waiting for her on her window
edge early iu the morning.
Susie had a vast respect and consid
erable liking for her eccentric neigh
bor, but, nevertheless, she scarcely ap
preciated his last manifestation of de
votion. A baby bewailing a broken
toy might be comforted by a pelting
of flowers, but a vouns lady humiliat

muttered, "I dare say ho heard every

In her girlish resentment busio for

Dion De Vere, and she was quite calm
when presently her 6ister came back
to the room.
"I 8uijposc it has happened just as I

girl, choking back a sob that she

Pamelia; "and, Susie, that marriage

Pamelia Aid rich prophesied truly
then, for before the year had gone she
died, and Susie was left alone.
It was a sad time for tho girl. Her
betrothed husband came to her only
once, and then the few words he meant
for comfort seemed to her like a mock
ery. And yet she knew he was fond
of her as he could be of anything ex

come to him And when he spoke to
her of his a flection and their delayed

too, you would never marry for any

And in his masterful' way he per
suaded her to acquiesce. Ihe name
of Dion De Vere he never mentioned.
Better than Susie he knew that the
man was thoroughly false, and this he
meant to prove to her after his own
considerate aud whimsical fashion.

The above is a repart, in brief, of
the schools of Cass County, fr the
last year. By this it .will be seen that
the average number of months, that
school has been kept, is 7 1-5 to each
district. This is as high an average as
could be expected, when the fact that
a number of the districts hart been
organized but a short time is taksn in
to consideration. The number of chil
dren that attended school during, the
yar is about 71 per cent, of the num
ber of children ef school age. This
might be, and should be considerably
increased. In a State that makes such
provisions for. supporting schools as
this, and in a County as well provided
with schools as this, at least 03 per
cent, of the chydren should attend ; a
few of the youngest children, perhaps,
can not. I would appeal to the people
of the County to try and have the re
port, next April, show at least 85 per
cent. The average attendance is a lit
tle more than 53 per cent, of the en
rollment. This, too, should be very
much increased. Nothing so much
hinders the work of a school as irreg
ular attendance. Few parents realize
how much it interferes with a child's
study, to keep it at home a day or two
each week. I believe that for every
one per cent, that, the average attend
ance falls below the enrollment, the
eihciency of the teacher s work is re
duced two per cent., provided each pu
pil makes his share of the reduction
The pupil who is irregular in attend
ance, not only loses the instruction
himself, out also disorganizes the
classes to which ho belongs. I think,
that after making due allowance tor
sickness and other causes that una
voidably detain children at home, the
average attendance might oe at least
75 per cent; and with a view to the ac
complishment of bettet woik in th
schools, and that you may receive
larger return for the money expended,
I would urge upon parents the neces
sity of having tsir children regular
in their attendance at school. And if
you will raise the average from 58 per
cent, to 75, you will find the efficiency
of the schools increased in a greater
ratio. K. II. Wooley, Co. Supt.

IN FARBAGCT'S MEMORY.
A Sketch of the SUtue New Being Cast
. at the Navy Yard.
From the Washington (D. C.) Pott.
Four years ago Congress passed a
resolution appropriating 920,000 for a
colossal statue,, of Admiral Farragut,
to be cast iu bronze, and authorizing
the Secretary of the Navy to enter In
to contract for the work. The award
was to be open to competition, and a
committee, con posed of the Secretary
of the Navy, the General of the army
and the widow of Admiral Farragut,
was appointed to select the artist.
When Miss Vinnie Ream returned
from Europe, after the death of Ad
miral Farragut, she began to model a
bust of that great naval hero. About
the time it was finished the committee
above mentioned held a meeting at the
Arlington hotel to examine the models
entered for competition Twenty-two
were submitted for examination, re
presenting the most distinguished art
ists in the country. The result was the
award oX .tha work. to Miss Vinnio
Ream, whose model was declared the
best and most perfect likeness of the
deceased admiral. ' The artist then set
to work, preparing the model subject
to the suggestions of the committee,
and about a year ago they made a re
pert to Congress, expressing their sat
isfaction at the work. Mrs. Farragut
has taken the deepest interest in the
matter, and has maie, four visits to
this city, watching the progress of the
model and encouraging the artist.
Having gone abroad with the admiral,
this lay,v in every way a remarkable
woman and gifted with excellent judg
ment, had unusual ..opportunity of
studying art, and her expression of en
tire satisfaction with the work of Miss
K am was very assuring to the young
When the model was finished in
plaster the Secretary of the Navy kind
ly issuedan order that the statue should
be cast at the Washington Navy-yard
in order that the artist might be able
to give it her constant care and atten
tion, only conditional that it should
not interfere with Government work
and should be cast at the artist's ex
pense. Finding that there were no
workmen experienced in molding stat
ues at the Navy-yard, the artist adver
tised in the Courier des Etats Unis, of
New York, for competent workmen.
and succeeded in securing the services
of four men, every way worthy to be .
entrusted with the work; who have
been steadily engaged at it under the
direction of the aitist. Chief Engi
neer Shock, of the Navy-yard, who is
very much interested in the work, was
inspired with the idea that the statue
of Farragut should be cast from the
metal which composed the propeller of
the Hartford, the flagship of the Ad
miral. He accordingly sent the Tal
lapoosa for it, and the statue is now
being cast of the metal which drove
the Hartford to victory and crowned
with unfading laurels the meneory of
her great commander. This fact will
doubtless be recorded on its base.'
Alexander II. Stephens says that he
is heartily opposed to the nomination
of Samuel J. Tilden by the democracy;
that he had supported him once, but
did not believe that he could be elect
ed if a candidate, and that should Gen.
Grant be the nominee of the Chicago
Convention for president, and Tilden
the nominee of the Cincinnati Conven
tion for the same high position, he be
lieved that Gen. Grant would carry
two or three southern states. Mr. Ste

regarded him as a great soldier and a
great man, with statesmanlike quali
ties, who, when he bad conquered the
south, showed a magnanimity toward
the southern people which was unpre
