They begiu by tafeius the children
from school. Ah ! that's the wrong
end to -ein at. Keonomize in
everything else that w;!i bear it
and then you will have enrngh to
pay the tuition .
The average school fee is not
more than two and a halt dollars
per month. This is sixty two and
a half cents a week, fan not this
little sam lt? laid by each week !
Get a little --savings bank," like
that yon pfve your children some
times, and put by the savings week
Ij or monthly. Then pay the tui
tion monthly and jou will hardly
know it. Four cr five dozen eggs
a week will pay your school bill.
One bashel and a fourth of swe t
potatoes a week will pay the tui-j
twn. Two or three cords of wood I
a month will pay the tuition. A
barrel of corn a m-.ntli will no-rel
than pay the tuition.
Farmers, take courage, l'ou'ti
take the little ones from school.;
The iDjury sustained by a pupil,
when great gaps ot time come in i
between his schooling times is far
greater than you imagine.

We sincerely hope the present

Mo-toftiie work was done live
yearsage.ai.il as it has gone
through a chalky formation need
ing no lining, it has remained per
i fectly dry and the substance at the
surface of the bo: ing has become
I harder by exposure to the air. On
, the French side, where only small
progress lias been made, as well
' as upon the Euglish side, no seri

! report says: "After taking all these
tacts into consideration, it was
clear that the original estimate ol
l.L'o7,000 for the English half of
the tunnel was amply confirmed
by the experience obtained. '"That
would give 3,05-4,000, say .15,000,
000, as the entire cost of the tunnel.
The authors of the report go on to
consider and demolish the bugbear
ot foreign invasion of England,
i which has been the reason assign
led for opposition in that country to
I the building of tbe tunnel, as Co I
i lows: Water, at :he tat e of 100,000

sufficient to render C
