I observed by strolling up
down the creek this week that
farming people are verv much
lind with their work. Many of them
are still turning land for corn, that
ought by all means to have been
done last fall or winter. The farmer
never can prosper until he learns to
ieep his work ahead, and not wait to
commence his crop until he ought to
have it planted. The last few days

A Great Cyclopedia.
The twenty-second volume of the
Columbian Cyclopedia is announced
as just ready ; the entire set is to be
completed the present year, in 02 vol
umes, aggregating about 2i',000 pages.
Its price is remarkably cheap, only
$23.00 for the entire set, with easy in
stallment terms to those who want
themt The high character of the
works is vouched for by innumerable
witnesses, among others by Prof.
James Strong, S. T. I).. Editor of
McClintock A Strong's Cyclopedia of
Biblical, Ecclesiastical and Theologi
cal Literature, who speaks of it as
me Columbian Lyelopcuia seems
to me to strike a happy medium be
tween the loose, superficial works,
and the too elaborate and profound
ones, which few are competent or de
sirous of using. Most of the larger
general cycloredias are overload
eu wiui a mass oi teciiuicai science
and oilieial detail that is embarras
sing and useless to ordinary readers
The Columbian is eminently practi
cal, sufficiently full and carefully
complied, well got up, convenient in
form and extent, remarkably cheap,
and, as I should judge, admirably
adapted to families and general con
sultation. I think that if properly
presented to the public it will have a
very wide sale, and be an exceeding
ly useful work. There is ample room
in the market for a Cyclopedia like
this, which combines, likewise, the
advantage of being an excellent Dic
tionary of the English Language."

Don't Be Gloomy.
Those who are the victims of' mer
curial poisoning, or who are suffering
lrom mercurial rheumatism, are in
clined to take a gloomy view of life
when, as the poet says, "Winter is
folding its white tents 'and spring
getting its thunderstorms together."
Yet these victims have no reason to
despair. S. S. S. is a sure remedy for
all forms of mercurial poisoning.
Though it is purely a vegetable med
icine, it is powerful, indeed, when
called on to chase mercury, and the
last lingering effects of mercury, out
of the system. It performs the work
with neatness and dispatch, as thous
ands of testimonials show.
