This is false, there was no liquor sold to me nor to the boy either. I hear that Mr. Prince is reporting that I urged his boy to go with me and get a drink. The fact is, that Mr. Prince's boy frequently met me in town and asked me whether I was not going up to take somethiug to drink. I finally, to stop his talk, ashed him one day to go and take a drink. Neither of us went, and he understood it at the time to be a joke. But this was enough for the old man to make talk about. I have...

LIFE'S LESSON. BY MAKY MAPE3 DODOE. Though tangled hard life's knot may be, And wearily we rue it, The silent touch of Father Time Some day will sure undo it. Then, darling, wait Nothing Is late In the light that that shines forever. We faint atheart, a friend is gone We chafe at the world's harsh drilling We tremble at sorrows on every side, Atthe myriad ways of killing. Yet say we all. If a sparrow fall The Lord keepeth connt forever. He keepeth count. We come, we go, We speculate, toll and falter But the measure to each of weal or woe, God only can give or alter. He sendetb light, He sendeth night. And change goes on forever. Why not take life with cheerful trust. With faith in the strength of weakness Tha slenderest daisy rears its head With courage, yet with meekness. A sunny face Hath holy grace. To woo the son forever. Forever and ever, my darling, Goodness and love are undying Only the troubles and cares of earth Arc winged from the first for flying. Our way we plough In the...

In an interview which we had with our member, Mr. Kniss, on Monday last, we were glad to learn that there is a disposition on the part of members to allow each county one representative, with as many more to the older and more thickly-populated counties as their population and im portance may warrant. We certainly hope that the apportion ment will be made on this basis. It would greatly simplify the work of the Legislature, and, we believe, would be universally approved in ...
