A GOOD INVESTMENT. "Kliowl-
edgo is power" according to tho
old adage, but it is also said that a
man novor knows thing until ho
can toll it, and ho who eon express
his knowledge in language more
terse, vigorous, and appropriate
than othors becomes a leader of
men. In gaining this powr ol
expression as well as knowledge
itself there is no aid s.o holpful,
from which so much may bo ob
tained, and for so small an on tlay
as Webster's International,
Dictionary. This work is uni
versally acknowledged standard
for tho derivation, spoiling, pro
nunciation, and meaning of words,
and with its numerous tables of
useful and relioblo information it
quickly and satisfactorily answers
tho thousand and one questions
which ore constantly arising in
our reading and study. The pur
chase of this source of knowledge
and power will provo a profitable
investment for ovory house
hold, and for every teacher, scholar,
professional man, and self-educator.

very detormiucd old colored citizen of
Owl Creek valley. Ho had a young
raulo whioh bis boys wero unablo to

determined to rido it hiniBelf. He was,
howover, no sooner located on its back
than he was thrown into un adjoining
lot, where ho was picked up with both
legs brokon and his ueok badly sprained.
"What on enrth did such an old man
ns you mean by trying to rido a wild

rural neighborhood a good many years

spiritless woman, over whom Ab tyran

slipped out of this world. Old Ab's
panegyrics on his dead wife's virtues
wero loud and long. Boforo the funeral

It would seem that inexperienced men

It will bo noted that tho largest aver

and tho figures given would indicate
that employees as a general rule aro

of a trniumnu boing injured will hnve
been reduced to n minimum, ns the rec
ord goes to show tbnt at least two-thirds
of the injuries wero caused by attempt
ing to couplo automatic drnwbnrs with

solid or skeleton drawbar, which is
very daugorous evon ta tho most expe
rienced rnilroad man. Other causes
were on account of uneven drawbars,
some boing as much ns threo inches

tified with the law which requires nil

It will not couplo readily on a curve,
and it is necessary for the trainmen
either to pull ono of the drawbars over
or ebovo it over with their feet.
Ono of tho most general causes of
pinched fingers was on account of the
pin failing to drop all tho way down
into tbo holo whon coupling with a
link and pin. The brakemen invariably
reach over to give tbo pin a start so it
will drop into the holo, when the cars
