Please call and look them over. J. W. Robinson, each officer carefully attended to, they are at great benefit. We can each think of some help we have received; then let us fehow our appreciation by trying to do some- ibing, and though we need not expect our Sorts to be the best, we can each do our est for others and the boys and girls grovv- Snf? up about us. We have not time to do Everything, but let us try to do that wUich Is the most important. The old verse tells HS " It isn't always the thing we do, dear, but the thing we have leff undone that gives ibitof heartache at the setting of the sun." The boys and girls should have the best leducation we can give them, but if they Iinust rely upon themselves they need never idespair, for " where there is a will there is falways a way," and if they improve every lopporcunity they will succeed, and an edu- ffication gained by one's own efforts is really Ithe most beneficial. g The literature read contributes much Steward an education. Good books have rightly been termed our best friends, and U a farmer's time for reading is limited it as necessary to have the very best, and vhen read hand to another, and if it goes vitn a marked paragraph or a turned-down eaf it may carry an additional beauty and Spree; but if a bad book should come into pne's possession, consign it at once to the Ere. If farmers live near enough to town to avail themselves of its advantages we see o reason why, as tbey advance in years, Ihey need leave the farm, We like to see hem build comfortable homes on their arms, where they are surrounded by their cquaintances and friends, and spend their earnings for their own comfort and pleasure, and not try to save that they may ave something for the children. The boys d girls, if able bodied, can as well earn ieir own living as their grand-parents did. oey will, and accumulate if they are 'irt- Bustrious, persevering, and saving; outlet ihem remember that a good character is of nore value than all the money that can be athered together. We want all the boys and girls to avoid tte degrading effects of bad habits, to real- e that when one asks another to indulge, s offers it to him, he is not his friend, bui is enemy, and to recognize the wisdom of eing on'the safe side. The effects of nico- ne and alcohol have for several years been jght in the public schools. It is well own that nicotine from chewing tobacco auses trembling, paralysis, emaciation, fspepsia, heart disease, and dimness of iion; that smoking causes the smoker's heer, which often proves fatal; that oig- ette smoking causes lung trouble and va- us other diseases; they are made from acco quids and cigar stubs picked up m ^saloons and streets, and often carry foul ?ases from the first user, together with ,86 accumulated. There are also poisoa- drugs used in their manufacture. The it books tell us that drinking men are al oat always smokers or ebewers, and ma.ny drunkard owes bis ruined life and uuhap- -ness to the appetite for narcotics formed Bthe use of tobacco and the company into jich it led him. Che boys and girls are also shown that use of strong drink causes ulcers to n on tbe stomaeb and intestines, fatty eneratjon of tbe heart and kidneys, tbe Bn&iled liver, and alcoholic softepiog of > brain; that the use of beer causes fattar neratiou of the heart, Hver, and kid* s. The text books tell us tftat "aany |u»y take into their systems that vrWsu li only interfere* with the healthy aption, Ithe bodily ojpgans, but leads, JQ certain - Mole tow* this they ;hey become members of the family and associates of the children. . . Gambling is said—by those in a position to know—to be carried on, especially in the smaller towns, to sn alarming extent. We would like to have the men investigate the matter, as they have an equal responsibility in bringing up the boys and girls right. We art willing to do our part, but we need their co-operation, the force of their good example, and the power of their ballots to remove temptation and crush out these nefarious vices. . Now, if the boys or girls ever fall into any of these bad habits, let us each be able to say: " They never learned it at home," PEES01TAL MOVEMENTS. A. D.
