DUTTON, Notary Public A B Leete's store, Thompsonville. ^nsrland People, whether they live in the land of their birth, or in other parts of the Union, are apt to know the value of a good newspaper. Most of us read at least one daily paper regularly, and those who cannot see a daily read a weekly. To keep up with the news is now considered a necessity. He is a wise man who selects for himself and his family A First-Class Newspaper, one that he can rely on to give him not only a careful report of the daily happenings in his own neighborhood, but an intelligent and comprehensive review of all important movements and events in the state, the nation, and the world. With the newspaper as with everything else the best article that one can.command is the cheapest in the end. Superior quality counts in nothing more than in the public journal through which you keep in touch with the world. The Springfield Republican is recognized as a superior newspaper, or.e of the leaders of the American press. It has been in successful operation for over 70 years, but it is thoroughly progressive and modern. Its mechanical plant has been entirely renewed within the past year, the second time within a dozen years. Its facilities for publishing a great newspaper are now unsurpassed. The volume of reading matter in its daily issue has been increased by 40 per cent, and it has thus been possible to notably enrich and strengthen the quality of the paper. News, Politics, Literature. In all of these departments of a newspaper the policy of The Republican is broad, independent and fair. It is alert and enterprising in the service of its constituency. It seeks to enlighten the minds and brighten the lives of its readers by laying before them day by day all that is best and richest and most interesting in current affairs,both at home and abroad. It publishes fully and fairly the information which enables its readers to form their own opinions on public questions. It samples liberally the best literature of the times. The Sunday Republican is unique among Sunday newspapers. It is large enough to afford its readers a rich assortment of entertaining and instructive literature in addition to the news, but it does not swamp the ill in an ocean of printed words, in which good matter and the worthless are indiscriminately mixed. It aims first at excellence and in quantity is reasonable. The Weekly Republican is an invaluable journal for all who cannot keep pace with the crowding reports of current events in the daily press, and as well for New England-ers away from their early homes who desire to . keep informed of events and of public sentiment in Yankee land. It is edited with great care •canto oanl-,1 vvaek-the -best-edu-torial and literary matter from "the seven daily issues, in addition to a compact and comprehensive review of the news. It also devotes special attention to farming interests. SUBSCRIPTION RATES. Tbe Daily Republican: §8 a year; §2 a quarter; 70 cents a month; 18 cents a week; 3 cents a copy.

How She Excited the Curiosity of all Her Friends. One of the best known and most interesting men in Brooklyn, N. Y., is Prof. J. M. Elwood, residing at 43 Cornelia St. He is a noted scholar and professor. His charming daughter is a young lady of most estimable character and has hosts of friends everywhere. She became fearfully nervous and run down, and this was followed by a most severe attack of St: Vitus' dance. She grew worse and physicians could not cnre her. She finally got well, however, by a method which astonished all her friends. " It affords me the greatest pleasure,"- said the professor, '' to state that my daughter, who was a sufferer from nervousness and St. Vitus' dance, and who was treated for same by prominent physicians in Brooklyn without result, was completely cured by using two bottles of Dr. Greene': remedy. :'s Nervura blood and nerve SUSS ELWOOD. Such strong evidence as this must con-ince everybody of the genuine worth of this great medicine. Mr. Elwood's word is as.goou as gold. When he makes a statement people know they can depend upon it. Just such reliable statements about Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy are constantly appearing, and the people everywhgseJItepe the utmost confi^^ee ' JU* t ^'... They take it, and perfect health results. The popular Miss Elwood thinks it is indeed a most wonderful remedy when it will cure what all the skill of other physicians cannot benefit. Why waste time in trying uncertain and untried remedies, when here is a physician's prescription, a discovery made by the greatest living specialist in curing nervous and chronic diseases, Dr. Greene, of 35 West 14th street, New York city. If you take this medicine you can consider yourself under Dr. Greene's direct professional care, and you can consult him or write to him about your case, freely and without charge. This is a guarantee that this remedy will cure, possessed by no other medicine in the world. Stub Ends of Thought. One drop of scandal will spread over a whole life-time. Every human heart ought to be a birdcage with a singing bird in it. It is not hard to forgive a lie told with good intent. It is said the good die young. It is known that a great many adults are still with us. If we did as much good as we want other people to do, the millenium would be next door. It makes an honest property holder nervous to hear a fire bell ring. A full jail is a better sign than an empty one. Don't strike a man when he is down; and don't laugh when somebody else strikes him. An old bachelor is the tramp of society. A man's will is a woman's won't. Theology isn't religion any more than a fashion plate is a suit of clothes. THE SUNDAY SCH< L.6SSON I, FIRST QUARTER, NATIONAL SERIES, JAN. Text of the 17.

" Therefore Herodias had against him and would have t but she could not."

If wo are faithful wo must stand against the world •.,$ ways and expect to bo hated by it eklfi as He was and warned us that we shMuj| bo (John xv, 18, 19).

"And whon a convenient da/ come, that Herod on his birthday made » supper to his lords, high captain.?, and chief estates of Galilee." The worlra can find convenient days for pretty much everything they desire, and the man vflM? has the power to make great suppers fpr his A NEW YEAR'S SONG. The world is full of mystery, Which no one understands; What is before our eyes we see The work of unseen hands; But whence and when and why they wrought i the grasp of human thought. There was a time when we were not, And there will be again, When we must cease and be forgot, With all our joy and pain- Gone like the wind, or like the snow That fell a thousand years ago. We live as if we should not die, Blindly, but wisely, too; For if we knew that death was nigh What would we say or do, But fold our arms and close our eyes, And care no more who lives or dies? If death to each man in his turn Is coming soon or late, Be ours the soldier's unconcern, And his courageous fate; Better to perish in the strife Than to preserve the coward's life. New Year, if you were bringing youth, As you are bringing age, I would not have it back; in sooth, I have no strength to wage Lost battles over. Let them be; Bury your dead, O memory! You can bring nothing will surprise, And nothing will dismay, No tears again in these old eyes, No darkness in my day. You might bring light and smiles instead If you could give me back iny dead. I have beheld your kin, New Year, Full fifty times, and none That was so happy, and so dear, I wept when it was done, Why should we weep when years depart, And leave their ashes in the heart? Good-by, since you are gone, Old Year, And my past life, good-by! I shed no tear upon your bier, For it is well to die. New Year, your worst will be my best— What can an old man want but rest? [For TIIE PRESS.] A NEW YEAR'S GIFT. In a small village in the western part of Maine lived little Lizzie Lock, with her grandparents. Her mother died when she was born, and her lather was unexpectedly called to Australia a few months before her birth, having been appointed chief director of a gold mine being worked there by a party of Eastern men, who well knew the ability of Mr. Lock. They felt that if his services could friends will generally have plenty filonds be secured great responsibility would oe glad to come. 22. "And when the daughter of-; Herodias came in and danced and Herod and then sat with him th^|| said unto the damsel, Ask of*me-w| ever thou wilt, and I will give it One of earth's great ones makes thM to a giddy, sinful girl and doabtfisssl promises are vain, for the world p; away and the lust thereof, and the all her joys is not life, but death. 23. '"And he sware unto her, W latsq-ever thou slialt ask of me I will g ive it thee, unto the half of my kingt oin." neon- Lord with only ke iv, ive to Back to the Old Home. We are accustomed to stories of dogs and cats returning to their former homes under extraordinary circumstances, but it remains for a horse to turn down the most remarkable canine and feline fable ever perpetrated. The affection that a New Jersey horse has expressed foT his former master, who sold him after many years' service, is enough ^o bring teart to the eyes of the most indifferent. This horse, it seems, was taken several miles from his old home, but two months after his departure he was found one morning in the stable yard waiting to go into his old stall. He was returned to his new master. Some time after this he was again sold; in fact, he changed hands three times, and was finally taken to. a distant township. But last week his original master found old B£n again standing at the stable door waiting for admittance, and with him a brown setter dog, which had been, as it proved, the horse's constant companion since his previous sale. Not knowing.who Ben's present owner might be, there was a family debate what to do, for th6 evident affection of the dumb creature touched those who knew him, but it was at last decided to advertise both horse and dog, and when the new owner should .be discovered to buy back the faithziil animal. For the sake of hvmanity it is hoped no obstacle will be raised to the; fulfillment of such a sale. Assuredly the horse deserves to end his.days jyith.his old friends. . Satan, whose devotees perhaps u sciously these people wero, offered the Jesus all tho kingdoms of this world their power and glory, if He would please him by worshiping him (Lu 5, 6). It is written that Solomon g the queon of Shcba all her desire, whatsoever she asked (II Chron.. ix, 12). j 24. "And sho went forth and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John tho Baptist.'; She had murder in her heart continually, and now it was lior hour and the power of darkness, and sho was quick to seize her opportunity. It is written of Aliaziah that his mother was his counselor ?to do wickedly (II Chron. xxii, 3), and this mothor is of that pattern, a true and faithful child of tho destroyer. 25. "And sho came in straightway with haste unto tho king and asked, saying, I will that thou give mo by and by in a charger the head of John tho Baptist." Satan is very prompt. Immediately; and with hasto she obeys her mother's wishes. John is a truo child of God, groat in tho sight of the Lord, filled with tho spirit from his birth (Luko i, 15), tho special herald of tho Son of God, greatly honored by God, and yet ho has been allowed to languish in a prison, and now satan will be permitted to reach him with his last and worst weapon—death. 26. "And tho king was exceeding sorry, yet for his oath's sake and for their sakes which sat with him ha would not/roject her." Mark it well, he would not reject her, though she came seeking tho death of an innocent man. And can any poor sinner believe that the Lord Jesus will reject him when he comes asking for life from Him who is the Prince of Life, and who has said, "Him that cometh to Me I will in nowise cast out" (John vi, 87), who hqs also said, "I, oven I, am He that blot-teth out thy transgressions for My name's sake and will not remember thy sins?" 27. "And immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded his head,to bo brought, and he went and beheaded him in the prison." So John was instantly in glory, "absent from the body, present with the Lord." And it was his gain to die, yet it did seem so hard thus to suffer to gratify a wicked woman, but God permitted it, and His ways are just and true, and Ho says, "Be still and know that I am God." It was Herod's birthday, but it was a good day for John, too—his flrstday in heaven. : > 28. "And brought bis head in a charger and gave it to the damsel, and the damBel j ." What could sho taken from them; therefore sooner than had been expected he was called to go. How he dreaded to leave his dear Mary, as he called his wife. He said, "I believe I had rather not go now," but the large salary which had been offered him was indeed, much tojj^onsidered, for he had sess an abundance of the "almighty dollar" can be called fortunate. However, he had a good education, and, best of all, a loving wife. She understood thoroughly her husband s thoughts, that, if he accepted this offer and all went well, he would in several years return with sufficient means to allow them to live easily, enjoy life, and not feel that every moment must be spent in hard labor in order to some day have a snug home of their own. Consequently she encouraged his going, and on the morning of a bright September day he bade his dear Mary keep good courage till his return and hastened to the stage already in waiting. jt -;f -y -:f * "It was five years ago to-night our dear little Lizzie came tons, a gift from her dying mother, to be ours until the return of her father," said Lizzie's grandma to a friend who had come to spend New Year's day with them. "Yes. and what a comfort she has been to us. You know that after her mother died we heard from her father several times. It was a dreadful shock to him to hear of his Mary's death. He wrote: 'If not for the dear little New Year's gift I would wish to end my existence ; but for her I will live. She shall receive all the love and careful training a father can give her. Do all for her to make her happy until my return, which will be in about one yeaif.' And that was the last letter we ever received from him, which was two years ago. WTe have told Lizzie so much about her papa that she, you see, keeps asking why he does not come, and that is just what we cannot tell her." * * * * * * * It all went well at the mines. Mr. Lock, as the time drew near for his return, felt he could not wait for time to pass until he could clasp his dear child in his arms. ^ ; The day before he was to start, there was great confusion among the miners. A part of the machinery had broken and fallen upon many, injuring and killing some of the men. Mr. Lock was among the injured and in the confusion that gave it to her mothor." What could she | a]ways prevails at such a time, one is not do with it? Did ever a daughter give such regponsible fo*r what one does or does not do. grewsomo gift to her mother? Yet doubtless the mothor was glad to have tho assurance of her enemy's death. Satan was triad to have got so good a man off the . „ earth, and no doubt John tfaa glad to be; away and where? Meantime some one had.taken Mr. Lock at home and at rest, for he_ had finished i ~ fhe desperadoes who were lurking near his work which God had givonjje mines had caught him while he was and no power could touch him-till he had . , , . a . +u0j_ finished it" * ' i insensible and carried him off to their 29. "And when his disciples heard of ship, saying as they did so, "We'll make it they came and took up his corpse ii»d count Us a good haul," their way of laid it in a tomb." The body sleeps, but to catch any one they could John was more alive than when, in the e> , , • „ body. He may have been one of those whom they thought would bung them whose bodies rose after the Tesurrectioii of. money. Then after awhile they would Christ.

One day they anchored near the old rendezvous, as they called it, in the vicinity where they had captured the chief director. They had made, as they said, several good hauls of late, and were now on their way, as they hoped, to claim the §10,000 reward offered for Mr. Lock. They proposed.to toast their good luck, eacli wishing the other success in his way, and thus they spent hours over their wines, till each had taken too much. Their noise ceased, they were intoxicated and lay like dead men. It was well on towards midnight when the director discovered their condition and that they had neglected to fasten his chain, which made him secure. Only a moment to think and work in. He must risk his life, perhaps his last chance of escape. Cautiously he stole out into the part where they were lying, tied one after the other, until all were in his power, for they could not release themselves. Looking carefully around he stepped out and off of the place that had been his prison so long. The fresh air revived him. On and on he went, until he gained the hill he knew so well. There he sank upon his knees almost ready to perish. But no, he must not. He must reach the mine, for there he would find help. Some one was always there. He would then be safe. „ Yes, Jack came out of his cabin in early morn to find the "lost director" within four feet of his cabin door. "Dead? No; that must not be. We will restore Jjjm to life." And thus they did, ^"•aiKi his a6ld"fe&iJ as Jadk called his wife. With a day's rest and good food came strength and hope to the director. He told them all and then ordered his men to go to the rendezvous and make those desperadoes prisoners. The news spread rapidly that the "gang" was captured and that the §10.000 had been given to tbe director to be divided with Jack. Thus Mr. Lock was on his way home with the gold lie had dearly eaj-ned. •*. * * * * w As little Lizzie, her grandpa and grandma and their good friend, Miss Charity Pleasant, were sitting down to their New Year's dinner, grandma said: "It needs cne tiling more to make us happy." "Yes," said little Lizzie, "and I know what that is; if my papa were here." And at that moment the door opened and the chief director entered. Need I tell you that Mr. Lock and his Lizzie had a New Year's gift each in the other. And later good Miss Charity Pleasant became the happy wife of Director Lock. There are moments in life we never forget. They grow brighter and brighter as time steals away. So the Locks thought. * AUNTELLICE.
