Already those who have wood
to buy are finding it difficult to
supply their needs. This commod
ity grow6 scarcer and scarcer with
each succeeding winter. Another
reason why it is more aifJQcult to
obtain wood now is that the peo
ple who reside in the country dis
tricts are more prosperous and do
not care lo haul it at the prevail
ing prices, for there is but a sn all
margin of profit after the cost of
hauling it for several miles is
paid.?After the roads are bad, as
they usually are in winter, the
wood problem will be still more
serious and vexatious.

Christian work than during for

to two causes : First, the bitter
factionalism that was rampart all
over the 6tate not many years ago
has subsided, and secoud, because
the pi ese nt pastors (meauiug no
iefiectiou upon those who served
the churches in the past) are
more active and, withal, more

present Mrs. Emma Auld, Mrs.
Beauregard Timmons, Miss Flor

Auld and C. E. Burts. The hours
of the evening were passed in
pleasant conversation, fortuue
telling, relating ghost stories with
the lights lowered, biting hagging
apples aud in various other uuique
and uovtl ways. The harrowing
effect produced by the ghost sto
ries was heightened by having a'
large pumpkin, with gruesome
face carved i-n thc side and light
ed candle within, placed upon the
mantel. Rev. Mr. Auld was voted
the honors for being the one rao6t
gifted in the art of relating ghost
stories, rivaling both Nathaui-d
Hawthorne and Washington Ir

harrowing scenes yet before their

finding him at the home of a
