Tite locust is 80 flue a tree that cveu calliu;;' it ab acacia does uot dispel tbe chanu. If I were a George P. Morrii r would immortalize myself by siuj; lug the locust's praises, but I would avoid saying anything about uol .sparing ii. That is uuneee.ssarj-. Tbe locust is abuudantly able to take t;arc ol itself. It can grow faster than four tecu woodmen can get rid of il. A secondhand locust wilderness Is Iiurd cr to kill otr than a colony of mosqui toes. A man can cut dowu a locust sprout, iuvi his back a momeut to light his pipe and find tbe thing sprout ed agaiu by the time he is ready io resume work. I once bad a work ins for me who was so.siow in bis movements that when be f^ed to grub the locust thickets they actually seem ed to £ain on him. Tbe fecundity of the locust is such that it makes the rabbit look like au spostle of race suicide. .K forest fire stands no show iu a locust thicket for the reason that the young stoots spring up in the wake of the fire so fast that they almost overtake the flames. This is discouraging to the fire ficud. who has Doihing to show for his labor. I have lived ou a farm six luontlis now. aud in that time I have bad ttjos- Quiioes. malaria aud poison ivy. \ev- eribeii».'58. as .Vricmus Wai:J said of the gi~.ive of Shakespeare, -it is a success."

Tliuinas Carlyle ubce said that Lugland contained :;0.000,000 inhabltuuts. '•mostly fools." This country bus over SO.iJOO.uOO. aioil of whotn live in town. That i.i uot quite equivalent to Carlyie's stricture, however, for the reasou that many of our urban dwellers cannot help living in town. When we have dose wfaat seems our utmost, yet are wUUog and anxious to do more, our better aelres Intervene and show us possibilities rof achievements never before dreamed.
