too much of a man for a barlow

with the tferieraton. One of our
grand daughters told1 me she
didn't have but seven dollars.
She wants ten. I recon, and will
soon be putting put their wash

We had a Sunday School
Christmas tree last. Friday
night aud it was a pr tty sight.
The children were all dressed
in their best appearl, and were
seated in rows according to.
age. The beautiful tree reached
nearly to the ceiline, and was
illuminated and loaded down
with story bcoks and dolls, and
toys and oranges, and pretty
things, aud the little chaps be
haved beautifully. As the gifts
were taken from the tree, itwas
splendid fun to watch the eager
expectant faces as they waited
for the name to be read out.
there was a lovely doll, on the
top of the tree, a doll with an
gel wintrs, and almost as large
as a sure enough baby. Every
little girl wondered who that
doll was for, and every one. bad
hope until the good preacher
said : "Children, you may look
at the doll, but you must, not
wish for it. That doll is for
the sweet little sirl who has
been sick so long, and is still
sick. You know that her good
father died the other day, and
she is an orphan now, and I am
sure you will all be glad for her
, to have that doll." And they
were glad. 1 could tell it by
their faces, for they all loved
her aud pitied hei. After a
while there was a little wooly
sheep cut f join the tree. It was
mounted on a stick, and it
would Meat when it was shak

I had to advance forward and
take it, and the children laugh
ed and cheered so I felt right
sheepish and wanted to. bleat
too. I offered it to a little girl,
and she said she didn't need it.
Jutd, then I saw a preacher com
ing in, and so I had his name
put on the card and called out
aain, and so the sheep kept
traveling and-j bleating, and
lots of fun. A red jumping
jack was givn to the leader of
our choir. He is a tall, stately
gentleman, with red hair and
lonj; red whiskers, and is every
body's friend, and when he wa?

Presently a charming creature

"It seems that a magnificent
covey of partridges are lung on
ou the Lauzieie, and eating Jeau
de Christol's buckwheat. Fifteen

tor several days, and has counted
a3 many as fourteen of them.''

enough to be true. The young ones

could not tell them fro.n the old

"Minique will take that shot

Oh, you, 1 know he is not good
for such, my boy, Minique will kill
two or three of them and wound as
many, and the wounded ones will
natter away ad die, without
profit to anybody. Ue has only an

back your word just for once ?"' At

were at a ransom, and 1 think It a

"Well, so it is," said Jack, who
in the depth of hi soul was only
too much of this opinion, "but why

"Doctor, I feel' miserable in

take?" asked an old bachelor
patient of a physician. "Take
a wife," answered the doctor
gruffly. Many ar6 the men who

his peace of mind, the woman

becomes his protector. SLe

vValdo F. Brown, the well
known Ohio farmer and agri
cultural writer, has proclaimed
himself a covert to the value of
and cob meal. From actual
experience he eays he is prepar
ed to believe that the 12 or 14
pounds of cob. when ground
fine, are worth as much as the
same number of pounds of
corn. Mr. Brown has so far ex
perimented only with this meal
for cattle, bnt intends to try it
on hordes and swine.

The Warrenton Gazette says
last year was probably the worst
crop year our people have had in
forty years. Nearly every kind of
crop was at least a partial failore.
So, it is condition now, and not, a
theory, that confronts ns, and it is
therefore absolutely necessary that
far greater economy than ever be
fore be practiced.
