afford some luxuries for the inmates.
Everyone who passes tihe beautiful
little farm of Nelson Smith, near Glassv
Mountain, is sure to remark that he i's
a model farmer. Talking about cook
ing schools, Mr. Smith ought to be
superintendent of a practical farming

they are as perfect in the new groundi
as ttioy are in the old grounds.

Smith examine the limb, which he

Death is always sad, but that of
