WHAT'S THE, USE
of doing without the comforts of life that cost no more than the
necessities whose place they take? Why do without good lights,
for instance, when they are no more expensive than poor lights T
is a luxury that costs no more than the poorest kind of light.
Wouldn't you say, off-hand, that any one is foolish to use any other
light? See us about having your house wired for electricity.

If 33,000 tons of sugar bo taken as

It muBt bo understood, however,
that tho leaf-hopper Is by no means

Hut it Is very plain that tho system
