Fmm alt aprM-.n-ances cr.e might arjrue
that the center cf fxictry. if we have, any,
was now, like the center c-f population, far
beyond tbc Alleebanie". With this active
western competition, literature like agri
culture, may become an effete industry at
the east, and we may yet hear of the aban

hear of the abandoned farms. Tbe poets
of the older soft ions in another peneration
may leave their haunts in charge of the
state, and we shall perhaps have tbe com
monwealth cf Massachusetts advertising
them by conn ties and townships, with full
descriptions of each and the price annexed.
It has not quite come to this yet : but tbe
western pressure is very prr-at, and unless
somcthini is done to brin up tbe worn

lavish use cf fertilisers, or a new sy-teni of

What & blessed thing is memory ! Bow
it brings P the pleasures n: tbe past. and
hides its tiop'.easantnesset-! Yo recall
your childhood days, do von Dot, and
w sh they woul J return? You remem
ber the pleasint as?ociations, while the
unpleasant ones are forgotten. Perhaps
to jour mind comes tbe face of some
riena. It ws on;s a pale, s nl face. It
showed marks of pain, lines of care.
It seemed to be looking into the here
after, the unknown future. And then
you recalled bow it brightened, how it
recovered its rosy bue. bow it became a
picture of happiness and joy. Da you
it member these things? Many people do,
and ghdly tell how the health returned,
how happiness came back, how tbe world
seem d bright Tbey tell how tbey were
once weak, nerveless! perhaps in pain,
certainly unhappy. They tell of sleep ess
nigh's, restless dijs, untouched fool, un
strung nerves. A&d then they tell how
they became happy, bc-altby and strong
once more. You have besrd it eften in
the past, have you not? You have beard
oeop'e decribe how they were cured an 1
kept iu Lealtb? You certainly csn re
member wast it ia that has so
belied tuple in America. If no'
li-ten to what Mrs. Annie Jenness

tt'Utrtced benefit from tbe use rf tha
tre-it mtdioine, Warner's Safe Cure." Ab,
now vou remember. Now von recall
now many people you have beard 3 y
:hU same thins. Now you recollect how
rpuch you have hfard of th'u great Cure.
Now you are re-df to admit that memory
t usually pleesiasr, that tbe highest
pleasure comes from perfect health, and
tbfU this en at remedy has done more to
orcdnci and prolocn health than anv
o'her discovery ever known in the entire
