SPARKS FROM THE ANVIL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE 'TIMES.' Dear Sir, — As a citizen of the no mean city of Yackandandah, I, in common with the great multitude of our citizens, desire to express, my admiration of the first numbers of your excellent publication, ' The Yackandandah Times,' and to hail your, advent to our jnidst. , ' Looking Backward,' it now seems almost won derful how we endured the long' period of comparative darkness, un known to fame, and almost to one another until your valuable paper made us to know of each -other's exis tence and energy. Then, of course, we were blessed with ' Surmisor' to -chronicle faithfully to some distant -distant city that our worthy doctor Jhad cured the Continent of snake poison, or that there was a lingering 'probability of the minister's services being required to make some two young people happy who had begun to sigh — to turn the peach bloom into orange blossom ; or to tell some un believing distant people the loveliness of ourj village ma...

Ssaportaiice of Personal Ciean iiuess.

Then the waste of the system ac cumulates within the body and . assists in de pressing the vital forces. Thus by neglect to keep the ekin in a healthy etate-msny a per* son becomes dull and eluggieh and disin dined to mental or bodih? eSort ; ail tbe organs concerned in life ehare in the dis turbance, and become indolent and torpid.
