True gi it is as much to lie admired as any other quality in t'.e world. A Port-lar- d clernj man tells a story of the grit of a Maine mau who might be thrown down but would not stay there. He started iu business when little more than a boy, and had what by the time he was twenty-on- e seemed to him to he be a fortune of lo.ooo. Every dollar he had worked so hard to make was all lost in one night, and ti e young mau was forced to begiu anew. He went to au inland city of New York, and at sold out his intertest in a buisneis in which he had become conm cted.and retired with 50000. He eutered ttie oillce of a leading physician as a student, worked haul, and bad just been made an M. 1). , 7hen his old partner failed, and having endorsed his notes, the young doctor found himself without a dollar.

The system of d mole classes has been done away with and hereafter each teacher will have one ciass a day to instruct. This is as it should be. Each pupil is entitled to a fair square chance at an education and until one man is able to do the work of two he cannot get it under t'je double class system. The conscientious teacher simply kills himself at the work, white the one who looks out for number one divides the brain work and drain oo nerve force ntces-sar- y to instruct one class between two classes. The double class system should go. Ky. Deat-Mut- e.
