The Ice Crop.
Considerable apprehension is
manifest throughout the country
that the ice crop this year will be
a failure. The winter, thus far,
has been remarkably mild every
where, and many of the rivers
which are generally blocked up
long ere this are even open now
to navigation. Our great lakes
too, which furnish a large por-
tion of the ice cousumed, have
scarcely been touched by the
frost. Very little ice has been
cut anywhere, and next to none
in this vicinity. Once or twice
workman began to harvest on
the mill dam, but in a few days a
thaw interfered and the ice
houses are etill nearly empty. It
is predicted, however, that we
shall have yet considerable cold
weather and experienced judft-es
affirm that there will be enough
to yield all the ice needed. It
will be remembered that scarcely
any Ice had beet cut up to this
time last season, and fe,ara were
entertained that the crop would
be a failure, but the mouth of
February was favorable and the
harvest was abundant.

min Franklin once wrote :
"He who by the plow would thrive,
Mast himself either hold or drive."
Theee lines were very popular

by bringing out the following :
"He who by bis biz would rise,

JRoor Economy. As soon
as the times become a little hard,
quite a number of business men,
feeling that they must economize
aud retrench their expenses,
commence witl the printer and
stop advertising. That is a poor
policy, it would seem a Uttle re
flection would convince most any
one, scarcity of money naturally
makes the purchaser desirous of
making his cash go as far as posj
sible, and in order to do so, he
looks through the papers to see
where he can buy the cheapest,
aud the man who keeps his name
most prominently before the pub
lic, and fulfills his promise, will
inevitably reap the harvest. A
judicious expenditure of printer's
ink will pay a heavy interest,
and these remarks are -not alto
gethef inapplicable to subscri
bers. An instance came to our
knowledge the other day when a
person, had he taken the Demo
crat, would cave saved enough
in one purchase to have more
than paid two year's subscrip
lion, but had he been solicited to
subscribe for the Democrat or
any other paper, he would un
doubtedly have been too poor
when really the economy he was
practicing was the only thing
that was poor.
