The day was fine and pleasantly spent, a ijood dinner service under a large Elm tree, just such a dinner as the ladies of the neighborhood know here to prepare and serve. After the Sunday school exercises were over, an intormai meeting was called in regard to celebrating the coming national birthday. An invitation was given by the Curtisites to join with them in cele brating at Curtis. The people were as sured that excursion trains would be run each way from Curtis and that a large amount of sailing craft would be in readi ness to launch onto the groat Curtis lake, provided, we had in the interval a good share of rain, at least the vessels would be ready.

One day last week while Joe Mc Michael was riding across 'the prairie horseback, he saw an object ahead of of him moving at a rapid rate across the prairie. He was at a loss for a while to know what it was, but came to the hastv conclusion it must be one of Green's antelope. He immediately gave chase, and after a hard ride of one hour or two he succeeded in getting in gun shot of his expected prize but alas for Joe he didn't shoot it wasn't any antelope it was only a parasol, that had escaped from itsjair owner, while picketed out, as it had a rope attached when Joe captured it. Joe was much pleased with his prize and tied it to the fence till he should go home in the eveniug ; before going home he went to get his captive, but alas it had escaped having pulled out a fencepost. Joe has spent much time in looking for it and ho looks very sorry about it and he says if he don't find it by Sunday .night he is going to give it up for gone. G. Raxoek. Purify Your Blood.

They cast about, and upon every hand sec men who are- in possession of wealth. living in luxury, and ease and the ima gine that they too are abundantly able to live in like manner. They begin life without having first lain a good founda tion, and after numerous failures wonder why it is so. The man who has by years of toil, hardship and economy amassed wealth, locates the trouble at once, but slieving experience to be a valuable school as well as a dear one, permits all such to pass along at will. It is hard for men, no matter wkat their natural ability may be, to correct and overcome the effects of an error committed just at the beginning of their educational or com mercial career. How very important it is then that young men should begin at the beginning at the foot of all life's ladders and steadily ascend, contesting every inch of the way, and thoroughly testing every round before placing all thereon.
