KNOWLEDGE AND CULTURE.
The Two Do Not Npoeaaarlly Walk
Hand In liana.
High marks In examinations depend
upon n trained memory and a power
of acquiring Irrelevant Information.
Culture, on the contrary, Is a sym
pathetic assimilation of the best In the
realm of thought and achievement.
Culture Is a slower process and a deep
er, and Its reward strikes further In
AsRlmllatlon of the best that has been
thought and accomplished affects not
merely the brain, but the character
the whole spirit of n man. Culture
implies a soil plowed and fertilized,
where whatever seed falls has tho
better chance for growth. Informa
tion even in vast quantities, so long
as it remains mere Information, used
for purposes of passing examinations,
need not affect the manners nor the
morals of a man; both may remain
hopelessly lav ,' an cncyclopcdlnn
mine of facN. Vut culture affects
primarily the manners and the morals.
A cultured gentleman has external
methods of getting on with his kind;
be has the true sense of relationship,
the feeling that all he can learn to feel
or to be Is not for himself, but for
service; he knows himself In ' n net
work of human inter-relations. In the
end the test of knowledge Is not ex
amination marks; it Is living. Har

break down and waste away cell by cell.
bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by n proper
treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times during the
night. The mild uud the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
