reliable character, are the reasons assigned for
our suspension. We trust that in a short time

what is expected of them, and what is-to be
done, and that business will-be restored.

they exhibit an instructive contrast, Eve
lired at the begin-nin, and Kary at the "ful

new made world, after Creative Wisdom had
pronounced ib "all very good," ond before sin
