The sugar famine, if it may be call
ed sith, was brought to a close, or
at least tentporarily relieved, last
week when the several lerchatlt re
ceived shipments amontintig to 10,000
pounds. This it is thought will sup
ply needed demands for two or three
months. But the coal shortage still
prevails. As good fortune will have
it, however, those who have failed to
sevre the necessary amoutnt. of coal
are able to get some wood and there
is no danger of any one suffering.
TIhen, again, we have promise just
now of better weather which will re
quire less fuel.
Ve symipathize and grieve with i Mr.
and Mris. Jesse M4atthews of Mount
ville in the loss of their son, Waldo,
whose death ocecurred last Thursday
night after a very short illness.
Waldo was a (uiet, good boy just. en
tering young manhood witi the prout
ise of a life necessary for good citi
zensihip. Any death in at home, though
IunaUvoidable as it is. is a grie'f inde
scribab le w\ith tongue or pen, bu1t
whe 11he bloom of young tiuihood is
,ug it is surely doubly so. The
p:1t4,ail ihearts who n utist suffer
.ne~h panare the' one:; who nied pur'
:;incere't condolence. (fhit while this
will hlio exeeedingly to hear the huri
tii a thereis but on source of de
livery fromn it. To that never-failing
source", w4,e co aid all hereft 'lnes.
"Glot duethi all thing:s well" is more
true than it is diflicult to under:;land,
however dilicult it may lbe.
We hear much talk among the peo.
ple of potatoes rotting and fruit
freezing and jars htustiug from the
severe col weather of the past four
week:. It is so seliotit we have such
a winter during a life time that we
;'all not see or will nlot learn the wis
dom of preparing for the unusual
though possibl event. Tiuild for enetmerg
envies and we'll he seen re against the
ordinary as well, is the lesson still
to he learned.
Ily the way, this is an opportune
liie to Ilractice this kinowledgie, both
in agric(ulture, in econoty, in politics,
aud in war. It :eems to its there is
but one alternative to) learn"ing this
