Wednesday used to lie Wod<ensda\ and Thursday vn Thorsday. , They t-eliovt-d that Thor made thun- j der l?y picking up two great mountains in the sky nn l clapping ttieni toRefhar , tend ft,at he was ten miles high and his ( arms twenty miles long.

Young peopi j , should know that away hack before the (Christian era there wcro but ten months and the year ended with l>eeembcr and begaat with .lanuary, bernse their god Jirmis was n dotiblefactsi god and with one fn.ee looked back at the old year and with the Jther looked forv ai d at the new year. Tha' was pretty and appropriate. before ihe reign of Kuma, January and February were not in .In beginning of the year, but those old Roman empo frors and the old popes did what they *) I eased with time, and so January was made the llrst month to rdouse Janus rtien Nuina trunspasod Pchmary to pk-a.se Inipercus, another god who they aaid was the Mb" wolf thai suckled] Romulus atiiI Remits in a cave. and the Romans established a yearly festival in honor -of this she wolf and , railed it February, w.hich means er.pi ation. March iviik numel in honor or Mara, anothei god, and thr 2">ih of March wis the beginning of the year for 2,1100 years, not only with the Romans. hut with many Christian nations. Indeed. It was not changed from this distinction unt il tin- ye v 175?2. and it seems to me a pity that .t ever was changed. The time of the vernal equinox, the 21at of March, aeemo more like a now year an-d come "ban does the cold hloak midwinter <jT the first day of January. The next month to April was named < in honor of another god or goddess ' named Mains, who was the mother of I Mercury. Then came June, a name ' given in honor of Junius, the god of youth. Then came the other four months. September. October, Novem- i ber and December. Cods and goddess i es had given out I reckon. Hut later j on Julius Caesar imagined he was a | goi\ and made a new month and called | 1t Jufy* an'd Augustus Caesar did the i ?ai rim t'hinir jiiv. I f?alh?.l Vncii. <>f . . (jourse they had to rob the other bontlis of some of their days in order i jto g^t these two months in. Now. my jyoung friends, just think of it. how the civilized Christian world has been irafcjoord upon by superstition. Every day Hip the week and almost every mon'.lh in tlio year named in honor of some imaginary god that the heathen people worshiped. Paul preached a grand sermon when he said to them: "Whom ye is norantly worship him declare I unto you." Not only did we Ret from them the names of days anil months, but the names of all the planets except one. and that is the earth that we live upon. How faithfully they did worship their 1 Rods. How loyal were they to Jupiter, the god of all Rods, whom they imagined sat upon a throne on the top of Mount Olympus, an imaginery mountain far up in the heavens, and fro.n j there overlooked and blessed the clill- j dren of men. Hove Is the foundation of I character or every god, whether real or j Imaginary. It la worthy of reraem- ; brance that all the historic nations i worshiped gods whom they believed to be good. No people have ever wor- | shiped a god who did not love and care fur the children of men. There wore gods of evil. too. but the people did not love them. They Poaro.1 Oliein just as we fear the power of Satan now. The origia of many things of every day use in the business of life is a curious ond i'nC&reating study. For im^Oanee who established the ex-act length of an inrh, a foot, a yard. Who fixed the weight of a pound of sugar or ? ten dollar coin of gold or a bushel of meal. Those things .haven't been fixed so very long. The nations have been working on them for centuries and they were not finally agroed on until about 150 years ago. During the reign of King George IV the house of parliament in Ixindon was-burned up and the standards of weights and measures was burned up with it, and It took years to reproduce them, for although thousands of people had yard sticks and weights and measures, they were not exactly alike. Many yardsticks were a trifle short and thero were, scales to buy hy and scales to sell by and so ( with peck mcasuires <md half-bushel [ measures, for there were dishonest nerchants then atid I rv-ckoa there are iom? now. The flr$t foot measure is ' mid to have br.en the exact length of i in ancient Rowan emperor's foot. The ! irsl inoh wan tb? length of three grains j ?f English barley, which, it is said, is | i4?e moat uniform in sl*e and length of ?ny grain In hhe world. They took 108 grcvhiK out of a pile and lufd tin em i-n a lino touching each other and railed it a yard and one-thlrtv-sixth nan rjf that line was an .inch and so we have the old table of three barley corns make one inch. twelve inches one foot mnd so on. When niy wife wishes to ut up shirting or calico into certain engths she measures it by holding It mil at arm's length from the tips of her in gens to her nose and declares she loes not. miss it a quarter <?f an inch ind says it. is more correct than three arley corns or an emperor's foot. What a time the |>eople of the worldtave had in getting things settled lown to a uniform condition. Andt they are not. -all sotiled yet. We havej not vet agreed on our war with the] Philippines of the English war with the) floors of the tariff on Porto Rico or whether McKinlcy is a tippler or is [>ewey joking about the presidency or who is governor of Kentucky. Tlrsrc ire over 200 diflerent kinds of religion n this country. There, are seventeen kinds of Methodists, thirteen of F aptists. twelve of Presbyterians, six of Roman Catholics, six of Adventists," 'our of (Quakers, ten of Mennonites, seven of Kutherans. two Episcopalians, besides Dunkards. 1 niversalists. Morrnors. Spiritualists and many others loo tedious to mention. All of these profess to ho Christian ohurches and declare they can prove their faith by i.ht* Bible. Hut still the world lolls on and the years with it. The season - come and co just sis they have for ages. There i; no variation in the works of God. Sometimes i wisfo th.it like Him ! roil Id he poised away up in the heavens and look down upon the world and see it turning over and rolling onward in its orbit. I would want eyes that would scrutinise everything upon it Battles sind blood and carnage and the dead and dying and the mourners and the spires of the churches and hear tho Sabbath bells and t'j > preachers' sermons and see happy children going to school and the farmers plowing in the fields and the rattle upon a thousand hills and the never ceasing rush of people upon the streets of the great cities and the gold plied tip in the hankers' vaults and the poor and wretched in I llo v! 111 HI vJ >l twl tho t hnncon.le vlcts iu the prisons and the fires and funerals umd (banquets ami live Ships at ea and here and there a wreck and all on hoard engulfed. Yes. 1 would wish to see it all just once life and death happiness and misery, saints and .sinners in one Titut kaleidoscope. Then I would like to climb higher still and see the universe and listen to the music of the spheres and soar among the stars and ride upon the planets and?well no. I don't believe 1 would. On tho whole 1 would rather stay at home and work in the garden and oat my own asparagus tor dinner and take my evening nap and anon hear a familiar voice remark: "William, the flour is out and so is the sugar." 1 am glad 1 can't tee all the misery and am content, with my humble lot. -Hill Arp. in Atlanta ConstitutionHow Fortune Smiled. When this incident occurred, as related by a l>etruit lawyer, be was thirty years younger than he is now: "1 had all I cntihl do to pa> lor cheap boarding and the rein of a little ollice which also scrviHl :is :i Inilyilic apartment. Tho best 1 luiil in ;i husiucs* way was a touyh lot of collections ami a low insignificant rsH** in Justice's Court. "This is tin' way iu which tin* tide of fortune was turned. A big burglary hail Ikiii committed ami a man seriously wounded in trying Jo tlefeml his property. Arrests were nunle ami the whole community was up in arms. I never was so surprised iu my lite as when I was employed, at a ridiculously small tigure, to defend the prisoners, except when they were aci|uitteil. There was an organized gang of these fellows at the time, and the sipiiuteyed. sharp-faced leader afterward tidd in*' how 1 i'iiiiii' to yet the ease. "'We met,' said lie. 'alter the hoys was pinched, and a motion was made liy one of the blokes to hire two of the host and hi.sliest priced lawyers in the city If it took every cent we had salted. I give 'em rope while they <|tiarreled over who the lawyers should he, and then I done my put term'. I told 'em what a lot of jays tliey was to blow their stulT in on big wigs what charged a dollar fur every word they spoke. | My plan was to buy witnesses, and then any fool of a lawyer would do us. That's how you cot the ease, and it saved us a pile,' "I didn't feel flattered, hut it boomed me riyht into n good business that's made me comfortable. Detroit Free Press. Wise Cal. These arc tin- three reflections of Thcnphile tiautior's cat when she first saw a parrot: "This is certainly a green chicken," was her first thought. Succeeding it, came the conclusion: "hlckonR, even if green, are good to eat." Tlieu she sprang upon the perch, and the parrot shouted at her in French. "Ah." thought pussy, "it can't a chicken, alter all! it must is* a gentleman!" i I J \ J CHANGES FOB THE BETTER I AOvsr-Uge in the Levy of Taxes and Otherwise. J Important change in the school law.. At the lusi sfKsion of the general :is; sembly there was an act passed which ! ts of particular interest to the public scnoois or me state. .Speaking of it j ctuperiiitcaMient i>r Education MeMahan I said: j "This i.s the season of the year when I ambitious and progressive neighlHir| hoods are seeking to levy an extra tax j for the support of their schools in a more efficient manner than can be done I with the ordinary eonstitntional tax i alone. The last legislature changed the j method of* procedure in the levy of this tax. I shall be obliged if yon will t publish tihe new law in order that all ! may know how to make the levy legali ly. The essential changes are: "Kirst. Tin* petition to the county hoatd of education shall be by one ' third of the resident voters and a lik , proportion of the resident freeholders I of the ago of 21 years, wliiie formerly tliis petition had to he signed by only 1 six freeholders of the age of 21 years. I "Second. The mass meeting to ordet the election is dispensed with, and the i 'board of education orders the election | upon the petition signed as above indi' rated. | "Third. An elector must have paid taxes, but upon no special amount of ! property, whereas heretofore he could I not vote at t.his election unless lie paid I taxes upon Si00 worth of property I "An extra levy is evidently of very i little value to a poor community. A i State tax alone can render these tic help they need. My the county it nii'l tax now the towns contribute to the support of the outlying schools. Hut for a town or a prosperous district, an extra levy is always effective? and carries with it the charm (to the selfish) that it. el es not have to tdivided with poor neighbors." ' The following i- the section of the. law as it now reads: Section "4--That the voters or electors of any school district who rciuru real or personal property for taxation are authorized to levy and collect an annual tax t:? supplement anv sneeial I or" other constitutional or other tax for like purposes In the following maimer: I I'pdn the written petition ur request ?if at least one-third of the resident voters and a like proportion of I he resident freeholders of the age of wl years being tiled with the county board of educa' tioti, asking for the same and stating 1 the rnto uf tffio tax levy projtosed.whioh shall not exceed 1 mills, the said county lx>urd of education shall order the ic.itd of trustees of said school district to hold an election at some i place within the district after giving notice of the time and place thereof for at least two weeks in some newspaper published within the county and [ by posting notice thereof in at least , three public places within such school district for such length of time, unless there be no newspaper published with i in the countv in which ini.ni - | ing of the notices as above shall suffice, at Which said election only such electors as return real or personal property I for taxation and who exhibit their tax receipts and registration certificate-; a-. required it general elections shall he allowed to vote. At said election the hoard of trustees shall act as managers and the election shall he conducted as j is provided by law for the conduct of | general elections. At stid election each j elector favoring the proposed levy shall casta ballot containing the word "yes" ! printed or written thorcn. and each ' e lector opposed t > said lev\ shall cast 1 a ballot containing the word "no" S printed or written thereon.
