There can be no question but that their influence,

Thus an investment of $260 per annum in a Li e Insurance -Policy,
for a period of 30 .tears, by a person airt-d 33, will secure
a larger amount for his family at his decease, even should he
live to be e3 years of age, than could have been secured by the
depositor the same sum annually durine fell that time in a

THINK OP IT !
The chance that your life will fail within a year if 2 percent.
The chance that your house will burn wi;lno a year is less

Why insure the latter and m-glct the former?

Now for another common vice Drunkenness.
Sec. 1, Chap. 35, says : Whoever is found drunk
in any street, road, or other public place, from
the voluntary use of any intoxicating liquor, shall,
on the first conviction fur such offense, be punishtd
by a fine net exceeding six dollars," &c, &c.
When the police make a scoop with their net, they
doubtless catch a goodly number of inebriates, but
it is a mutter of astonishment to mauy how some
large fish get through the meshes. I say it more in
sorrow than in anger," that one distinguished indi
vidual is too ofteu seen upon ' any street, road, or

lohold that as soon as the strong hand is taken
o f these classes they fall to every manner of

these heavy returns, great personal care is taken
by the planters in the selection of the best seed,
and ploughing and cultivating faithfully. It is
thus, that from year to year, the quality of cotton
produced has brought the price up to its present
! high standard. The climate and soil of the
great force and earnestness, that if the uneasy
women whose clamor attracts attention, are given
the right to vote, the possession of that franchise
will necessarily involve them in the performance
of other duties, not quite so pleasant. One of
these is the military service another is jury

France 6hall be strong enough to bold this popu-lt-
in terror. And these conditions go far to
ciike a despotic government a necessity. -This
insurrection, and the fiendish nature exhibited by
tta populace, rise up to destroy every promise of
a republic, and as swift witnesses to justify the
yrevious imperialism and to make it a present
common or upland variety, besides being fourfold
as valuable. Land can at present be bought
from the natives at comparatively low rates, but
in a-very Bhort time the rush of immigration and
the demand for land will be such, that prices
will go up, and large tracts be difficult to obtain.
There is now a foreign population of about 2,300
on all the islands, but it is estimated that there
will be double that number in one year hence.
The Government of Fiji is at present in an
unsettled condition, and that fact constitutes the
main obstruction to the speedy advance of 'the
country in prosperity and wealth. The native
population is estimated at 200,000. Of these,

And there is a more serious aspect of the case,
which Mrs. Phelps has the courage to handle.
She eaye : 44 While some good but misguided
women have, doubtless from the best of motives,
embarked in this cause of women's rights; we
have, of late, witnessed with great surprise an
affiliation between them and others of more than
doubtful lives, who by throwing off all feminine
delicacy have gained a bad notoriety. This fact
proves the dangerous and downward tendency of
the doctrines of these free-thinking women."
This view gives the moral eide of the question,
