When a child, one thinks it is years from one Christmas until another, but when he prows up to manhood and trouble, it is remarkable how the time Jilts by and house rent, interest and insurance fall due. The season of m:r and gift giving is at hand again, and everybody, big and little, rich and poor, is wondering- if some icind friend will remember him. Our reader who are blessed with an abun-p- c .o this world's goodss houlil re- member, while feasting upon the fat of the land, .'hat there are poor and needy, and without any deprivation they could make these destitute souls liuppy. l.i making presents to your friends, give according co your means. '1 he simplest Christmas present should car-ewith it the all'eetion of an honest heart. When a sacrifice is made which must, in a measure, trespass some" what upon honor and honesty, the gift is unworthy the giver. The receiver also has an important part to play: an obligation rest with him. lie should receive the present with gratitude and not let his gratefulness be measured by the cost or the present. We saw a little squib the other day which wry truthfully said if you fear the spirit with which a humble gift will be received, better at once and forever have nothing to do with the one you hope to favor. He or she who looks a gift horse in the month is worth but little as a friend. They wiil betray and deny with little or no provocation. They are never of the kind who are known as friends in need. The less you have to do with them the better. The thing to do is keep within your means, but leave no stone unturned ia your endeavour to briny j y and happiness to others.

This is constantly supplic.i with a full line of Hardware, Farming implements, Field seeds, Wagons, Harness and Sad- -' dies. Any housekeeper or farmer can be supplied with any of the foregoing articles at reduced prices, as he is able to discount his own bills, for cash, and give his customer the benefit of the reduction, and for this and other reasons, he has an immense trade in every department, furnishing goods for this and adj lining counties. He claims that the Urown wagon, the Stoddartl Disc Harrow, the Drown Cultivator, McCormack Kinder and Mower.
