; .Wo pttea are asked why call it
a "Manse." The origin is aid but
but interesting. When the country
was first settled the Presbyterian
minister was the educated man
in the whole community sod was
looked to as an authority on all
subjects. He was the school teach
er, the preacher and the general
advisor. He soon became kpwn as
"The Man." and of course the
place where he stayed was known
as "The Man's House." Now say
the phrase rather fast and short
and yon will find yourself saying
"The Manse.'! The word hts a no

is still proud. , : .
