IN THE TORNADO'S PATH ' -:-f M I The mom of the storm dawned soft and seren A misty veil covered the sky, No trace of the viscious ■storm king couki be seen, No warning be traced by the eye. Hark! Sullen and low pealed the thunder's hoarse voice, The first note of warning was given, Then faster and faster the dark ■clouds rolded o'er, And blackened the face of the heaven. The soft light of day seemed tf> glide, and to fade, The shadow of death hovered near, All nature seemed hushed as with bated breath, While the darkneas of death crept near. Death rode on the wings of the wind tliat day, And the toll he took was so dear, Homes of peace and love he smote with his might, No help for the helpless was near. Mother, father and babes lay mangled and dead, When the wild wind's fury was spent, Oh the aching hearts and the shattered hopes, And the ties of home that were rem. Ere the tornado's breath hiad blackened the land, I had bade a'dear wife good-bye, She Icissed me at parting, I we...

Taking'itock in the summer time is a new custom with us. Heretofore we have only taken stock but once-a-Vear, in January, but from now on we will take stock twice each year—in January and July.
