Look Ahead. ,
Of course , your 'school 'will '
give some exercises celebrating
Thanksgiving day now , , why
not have a little school fair on
Thanksgiving day or day before
Thanksgiving ? Have the pu
pils give a shprt program , songs
and recitations , but ( , have the
principal feature .o ( this exor
cises be 'the school fair. Offer
some nice little prize , say a
book , for the best Specimen of
writing to be exhibited by a
pupil attending school. Offer
new tablet to the pupil whose
rawing is judged the best.
"let the school board to offer
irizes. Olfer a prize for the
argest ear of corn , the largest
nuupkin , the best loaf ol bvead
aked by one of the school irirls
he heaviest dozen of eggs. etc.
'his is only a suggestion. Can

Lf yon do not believe in the re
ligion of our fathers you ought
to. If you are not satisfied witli
Ihe investigations , the experience
and the testimony of philoso
phers , students , statesmen , min
isters and martys it is well worth
your while to investigate for
yourself. As etcrnily is longer
than time jus't so much more im
portant to you and to mankind is
this topic than any that perlnins
to this life alone. Christianity
is the religion of the civilized
word. It is the religion of sages ,
of thinkers and of sentimenta
lists. II appeals to all the higher
senses. Its importance , its dura
tion and steady growth for nine
teen hundred years , its intimate
and insepcrable relation to civili
zation and education , and its fol
lowing among the greatest minds
of all ages , entitle it to at least
serious thought and candid inves
tigation. Certainly no one is so
wise and erudite that he or she
ran ignore it or cast it aside with
a jest or sneer. York Times.
A Kails City girl went out into
the country to teach school. On
the second day one of the young
sters became unruly but the
teacher promptly took oil her
switch and chastised him.
The prettiest girl in the high
