In order that We may pre i .
intact the llboi lies which have bi > o
transmitted to us by o iii* fore
fathers, and which have stood the
tost of time, wc must see to it that
these two great powers are kepi
separate and distinct. A union of
Church and State cannot hen cfit
politics, it will surely dis troy relig
ion. The work of thc Churches,
while ir may bo as important, is
certainly different from that of tho
State nod should be accomplished i
without its aid, and fair-play de
mands that the stat.? be allowed to
transact its own affairs without tho
aid of religious denominations,
We are unalterably opposed to 1
anything thal tends ('-wards bring

the long anti short of it. And be

for I learn that two or more of

which ought not to he made."
A case in point is that in which,
in a recent conversation with a
Democrat of this County, he gave
expression to his purpose. Thc
Democrat referred to spoke of an
unlit person appointed to a respon
sible position. The President
asked for Hie name of the Individ

A very frequent eomplaint

they eau gel any number of
eggri at that time when they ure
plentiful, and therefore cheap, hut
when eggs uro scarce they got few
or none. What is wanted is to
keep only those hirds known :i<

hirds and who house and feed them
Well Ililli yot who cannot obtutll
eggs very early in (ho year, and of
eourso cannot have early chickens,
tho entire cause being that their

of thc various breeds named above,
if hatched in Mareil und April,
will begin lo lay at least ?? Sep

will continue to do so right through

ito small, but will gradually im
prove in this respect, and pullets
of thc previous year will, it* well
housed, begin lolay*ubout Decem

fore, hirds hatched in March ami
April, and not mon* than two years
old, are preferable, in a well ar
ranged yard, half the stock of lay

will he killed annually.
Those who wish to have early
chickens must ftdlow the same
rules. Tho hens should lie mated
together early in November for tho
earliest hatches, and later ia the
month all those not required so

year for the former and those
twelve months later for the hitter,
