END OF THE CAMPAIGN.
"We've married sister off at last, and pa
and ma are glad;
The troubles that we had are past;
we've all quit feelin" sad;
Now mebby I'll have things to wear
that wasn't pa's before,
And none of us will have to care about
expenses no more.
They say his father's got a pile; he
gave a house to sis,
Where him and her will live in style,
with servants, after this;
Pa used to fret a lot about the price of
meat and coal,
But now his heart is free from doubt
and joy is in his soul.
We put on all the airs we could when
he began to come;
I acted as they said I should and pa
quit bein' glum;
Ma, every chance she got would tell
about our pedigree,
And made him think we had a swell
and old, old family tree.
We all pretended to believe that sis
was somethin' great.
And that we'd set around and grieve If
she would meet her fate;
Ma often got him coaxed aside and in
a tremblin' tone
Would tell about the boys who'd tried
to win her for their own.
We went in debt to dress her well of
course he never knew;
Gee, but we kept her lookin' swell; she
was outclassed by few;
Pa cut my hair to save expense, we
kept things clean and neat.
And everything was cooked immense
when he stayed here to eat.
We've got her married off at last, and
pa and ma are glad;
The troubles that we had are past;
We've all quit bein' sad;
It took all we could raise to dress her
so she'd catch a prize;
The way the plan worked out I guess
It pays to advertise.

CANADA OUTDOES AMERICA
Dominion Ports Ship Almost Twice as

Ottawa, Ont., Dec. 30. Canadian

grain exported from this year's Amer
ican and Canadian crop, according to

The Canadian reports show that 17,
377,000 bushels of American export

Grand Trunk Pacific 3,510 cars.
Flies at Sea.
The finding of flies and butterflies
a long way oat at sea Is perhaps to
most readers a fact not Tery well
known. A recent traveler in the trop
ics relates that when thirty miles
out from land a plarue of flies over
took the vessel on which be was steam
ing. The cabin was so full of them
that the beams were blackened. Com
mon black horseflies they were for
the most part, with, however, a good
sprinkling of large green flies. Where
they could nave come from was a mys
tery, but they were a terrible nuisance,
and, although those on board swept off
hundreds In a net, their numbers were
not sensibly diminished. Another sin
gular circumstance was that, although
no land was In sight, large dragon
flies repeatedly flew across tbe ship,
and a large dark butterfly was observ
ed to flit across In the direction of the
nearest land, quite thirty miles away,
without stopping to rest on the vessel
at all. London Globe.
