you pitch into this, that and the other

When a reader of a newspaper sees
anything he would like to . ventilate,
he has the same right to write about it
that an editor has, and the publisher
will cheerfully give him space in his

No Fence Law. We understand
that the members of Montgomery
Grange contemplate petitioning for the
no fence law. On account of the
scarcity of both labor and timber, this
would be a good law in many localities
and in others it might not work well.
We are aware that in some portions of
the county there would be serious ob
jections to this law. If the Mont
gomery Grange people give it a trial,
as they will only petition for their own
immediate locality, then those of other
sections of the county can consider
the matter. Without giving any direct
expression, we leave it to those more

whilst the case of gold jewelry is the

exhibited. We advise all who think
of making such purchases for the
Christmas times to call in and examine
this magnificent stock before the rush
commences, so that they may have a
chance to look through -at their leis

you want on this side of the house, just

For the benefit of church-goers, we
would again urge upon the officials of
some of our churches to regulate the
time for ringing the bells and the hour
for services to commence. For in
stance, let the first bell be rung at 10.30,
to warm people to start to church,
then the second bell rung at 11 o'clock,
as a notification that services commence
precisely at that hour. This would in
sure promptness on the part of goers,
and would dispense with so much con
fusion consequent upon persons enter
ing church after services commence,
and would also enable the preacher to
dismiss the congregation in time to al
low servants a chance to enjoy some of
the Sabbath day.
