Tho "I Told You So's" have a
jolly good triumph in tho smash
of tho South Sea Island colonizing
expedition from California. They
had an easy guess of it, especially
all who knew that tho adventurers
did not know, definitely, whoro
thoy wore going to land or what
they were going to do whon put
ashore from tho brig Percy Ed
wards. It is a pity, for, by all ac
counts, thoy wore a decent sort of
follows. However, tho pluck they
had bofore, reinforced by the ex
perience thoy havo now, may bo
expected to give useful careers to
all of them that romain in the
southern hemisphere. Thoy have
sold their guns, and will tako up
Premior Seddon of New Zea
land, in an intorviow as ho was
embarking for tho journey to Lon
don, utatod that tho surplus in the
treasury this year would be 350,
000, about $1,760,000. That
colony's affairs havo been on the
up grade for several years past,
and there is probably not a coun
try in the world whore a genuine
popular government is more evi
dent. Its laws are to a groat ox
tent away in advance of radical
legislation elsewhere, and ovon
experiments that have failed in
other countries appear to bo a
howliug success in Now Zoaland.
Queensland's agent in London
is protesting against the courso of
tho War Office, in recruiting
horses in tho Argentino instead
of his colony. Ho assorts that
Queensland can supply hotter
animals. Probably tho matter had
only to bo mentioned for tho
Mother Country to do tho right
thing by hor child.
An artiolo from tho Examiner
reproduced in this issuo makes a
point, in behalf of tho cause of
Hawaii, not loss powerful than it
is original. It is a striking in
stanco of tho truth that tho

sword of two edges.

wore all armed with Winchesters,

but several decided to remain in

held out by tho Fijiau Govorn

fitting out in California with
tho intention of capturing one of

Ho said, "If you aro willing to
raise pigs, I'll help you. I will
bo responsible for your tuition
aud when you sell your pigs you
will havo to pay mo back." He
advisod mo to stick to it.
From tho first lot of pigs I re
ceived $33.70. Out of this amount
I paid $10 for tho pig's food and
tho remainder went for my tuition.
I had a piece of land about 25 by
70 feet. The first thing I raised
was beets. I succeeded with these.
The second thing was alfalfa, and
the last thing was pumpkins.
I did not have success in raising
these, because the soil is more of
day, and it kept wet all the time.
It rotted tho seeds.
Now I have a new pen ot three
divisions in which thore are two
sows and a small pig. On my
now piece of ground I have alfalfa,
sorghum, beets, aud water-melons
growing. I have more success
with these things. I havo two
hours work on my laud daily. Mr.

If there it any reason why you should use

should use Ayer's. When you take sarsaparilla
you take it to cure disease ; you want to be cured

That is vfcy you .should use Ayer's : it cures
quickly and cheaply aud it cures to stay. Many
people write uis : " I would sooner hnve one bottle
of Aycr's Sarsaparilla than three of any other
kind." A druggist writes that " one bottle of
Ayer's will give more benefit than six of any other
kind." If one bottle of Ayer's will .do the work
of three it must have the strength of three nt the
