It was very short and polite, yet formal; bnt, brief as it was, three times had its author written it before he was pleased with his production- At first he j had written as he felt, beginning "Dear Miss Maurice' 'expressed a hearty wish for an early meeting although sixty miles apart,' and ended-" Yours sincerely, D.

Messrs Ward and Ciiles] at Petcrsborg, MEETING IN THE INSTITUTE HALL. On Friday last at 2 o'clock noon a ' public meeting was held in the Institute Hall at which Messrs Ward and ^Siles, M's.P. for Frouie, addressed their constituents. His Worship the Major (W. Thread gold, Esq., J.P.J, presided over an attendance of about fifty, and in open- : ing the meeting said that he was sorry there was not a larger number present, but doubtless the inconveuience of the time would account for that. The meeting could not be a long one as the members had to leave by train, but they had promised to coine back shortly when there would be more time for questions. He was sure the members had done their duties exceptionally well, and their undertaking the journey they had in so very oppressive weather showed that they possessed considerable courage, and were men of perseverance and energy. The first matter they wished to bring under the consideration ef their members was the handing over of Institutes...

He is the son of Mr James Bath, so well and favorably known for many years as the Secretary of the Education Board, and now Clerk to the Minister of Education. * * * They say the work of dismantling at the Exhibition is proceeding rapidly, and already the change produced is so great that one would not recognise it as the same place of beauty. # # * They say that fruit is not so plentiful in the market as was expected, and the appearance of the codlin moth will not mend matters, * * *.

Farmers' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 January 1888

Farmers* Col antti, Keeping pigs*-We have heai*d several farmers say u It does iiot pay to keep pigs." This puts us ill mind of a man who picked up a light sove reign, for which he could only get seventeen and sixpence. Passing the same spot a day or two after, he saw another sovereign lying upon the track, when he said, " You may lie there, for I lost half-a-crown by your mate the other day." The farmers' pigs eat up the farmers' waste, and the time spent in feeding them would not propably be better employed. The manure from the sty is valuable; and even if the pig sells at fourpence per lb instead of sixpence* the fourpence is not all loss. As a matter of fact, the price of bacon and hams is high now, and likely to remain so, because our traders have now opened up markets which they could not have supplied before the glut came. It will pay well to rise poultry > pigs, fruit, and everything that the land will produce. The farmers' time and strength is capital, and it must be emp...

Selected Poetry. SABBATH CONTRASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 January 1888

Selected Poetry. SABBATH CONTRASTS. Now ali day the iron bells are ringing, Ringing clear the Sabbath bells; And in churches high the Censers fair are swinging. And the pealing organ swellS. And all day the name of Christ the faoly RiseS bn the wings of prayer ; And in mighty tones the name of Hiiii, the lowly, Rings out on the perfumed air, And in places high they tell his storyj Weeping o'er his pangs and woe; And through all the world is heard His glory. For His sons hare loved Him so; But all day in filthy lane and alley, An t the narrow crowded street, Where the fever forces meet and ral ly, Trodden by degraded feet. See the mothers and the children sickly, See the starving, shivering ones, Crouching where the shadows fall so thickly, In the darkest of the slums. In your churches ring the name and praises Of the Christ, God's holy son ; Come and see him looking from the faces Of these shivering little ones. And you tell the story of His dying, And His suffering on the tree ; An...
