.1 WonderfsU Microscope
Rev. Dauiel Wise, D. D., editor
of the ew York Sunday School
-Advocate, thus speaks of the cel
ebrated Craig Microscope :
" Its simplicity, cheapness and
great magnifying power struck
me with surprise, ihen i was
examining a fly's eye by its aid,
and was struck with wonder
at the skill and power of the Cre
ator which is displayed in its
structure. When j sav a state
ment in an ad fa ft U a meat that
the Craig Microscope magnified
one hundred diameters, and could
be bought for $2.75, I thought it
was one of the humbugs of the
hour, for I had paid $20 for a
microscope not long before. But
now I find it to be a really valu
able instrument, which I should
like to see introduced into the
families of our readers in the
place of manifold useless toys
which pleas for an hour, and is
then destroyed. This microscope
would both amuse and instruct
them and I advise every boy and
girl who wishes to know the
wonders which lie ia little things
to save his money til he has
42.75, which w 11 par for the mic
roseepe and the postage when
seat by mail.1
As a holiday gift this micro
scope is unsurpassed, being orna
mental, instructive, amuaiog ana
cheap, and never losses its inters
est. Agents and dealers suppli

The Right Way.
The following paragraph is go
ing the rounds, and we think it
is true to the letter, and therefore
give it a place in our columns as
being applicable to Eaton:
One of the means by which we
may build op a town and bring
brosperity to our county gener
ally, is for every one to patrons
ize home institutions, especially
when the article desired can be
had here. Keep the money here
is the way to make us rich, and
every man who sends away for
work he can jnst as easily get
done here, deprives oar town and
county of just that much wealth,
as well as discourages enterprise.

No man who ovvus a foot ot
ground, or is interested in the
prosperity aud future growth of
his town or county should neglect
to take his home paper. The
local press is an index, in a great
measure, ot the condition ot tne
county in which it is published.
And if a mean, dribbling, and
niggardly Buppor is given, It
must eke but a sickly, miserable
existence, reflecting little credit
upon itself or any locality in
which it is published, and exert
ing no influence for good or evil
on the place or its people.
When our people refuse to take
their local paper, and send away,
paying in advance for some East
ern publication, made up in
many instances from the frag

stand in their own light, and
commit a folly which they will
probably become coguizaut ol
when it is too late to make
separation for the oversight.
An enterprising home paper
should be encouraged at all
times. It reflects the business of
the r,lace in which it is publish
ed; it champions the interests of
the people where located, ana
gives prestige and prominence
to the country of its adoption.

it is the daily history of the
community in which it is edited.
