Tiling hsa doubled some men's farms?not broader, hut twice as deep. Straight rows are more pleastag to the eye and less tireeome to the hand. Karly to plow and early to reap, the granaries all with golden grain heap. The oldest resident can't remember when h green fodder crop came amiss. Foresight is much more valuable than hindsight, because it is so much scarcer. Wind, rot and a breachy animal, like the measles, always find the weakest spot. Better begin tho spring with only one pair of trousers than without a grindstone. While condemning that which deserves it, don't forget to commend work well done.

It is almost impossible to keep house on less. House rent, fuel and other essentials come hi^h, and a younjj man who only earns $15 or $2U a week must necessarily run behind, lie can live quite comfortably on $15 a week ir he is single, but let him attempt to support a wife, and perhaps a family, on this sum aud ho will seo where the ends will meet." My friend is either a spendthrift himself orhe has an extravogant wife. If he expects every young man to wait until he receives $25 a week before he marries ho will soon see the population of the world dwindle down to tho same number it contained before Adam and Eve began their existence.

The vote last Saturday was almost unanimous in favor of the new school district, there being only two votes in the negative. The vote cast was about two-thirds of the whole number of voters in the district, which, under the circumstances, was a very full vote, there having been no zealous candidates in the field stirring out the people. We suppose there never was an election in which there was less attempt to interfere with the free choice qj^the voter. Ballots were printod both for and against and each voter took his choice of the ballot* placed before him; and all choee those in favor of the new school district. One very encouraging feature of this election was the favorable vote of a number of property holders, who having no children, have no direct interest in the schools.

As ho jogged along ho caught a protruding twig and tossed it away. Quickly a little slip of a girl, with sun-kissed hair and eyes of divineet blue, ran and picked it up.
