sprak any other language than his na
tive O.-elic, is quite harty, and does
the chores round the farm of his ?o?i
Peter with whom he resides. Brock
way must be a healthy town.
An Amoraas Bceadjek Clrea Away.
Towaros durk, a few evenings ago,
a low sized beauty from the west
country, was seen loitering around the
school house eomers, as if looking for
something lost. By a remarkable
coincidence a ton buggy arrived on the
scene, the driver of which seemed as if
he also was looking for something lost.
A similarity of occupations no doubt,
soon ripened into warmer relation, as
our sheroine and her gay Lothario
were soon making rapid eed, as if in
desperate hurry, towards the writ.
A wide-awake citizen happening on
the bridge at the time espied the rig
coming dDwu the hill as if th DAI was
after them, and thinking the brldga
was unsafe for such furious driving,
brought the business to a halt, whnn,
lo and behold, we wont tell this time
but look out how you go that road

OUR MANUFACTORIES.
An article which appeared in the 1st
No. of the Expositor, suggesting the
forming of an association of tho busi
ness men of the place for united action
in securing certain adrantsces tending
t the welfare ami substantial growth
of our village, is well worthy the
earnest consideration of every citizen
who desires to prosper und see others
prosper. It has suggested many
thoughts to the writer as to what are
the best means to securr that end.
The old song is true that it takes peo
ple to make a town, but the kiud of
town depends a gA deal upon the
kind of people. It may be a rather
Utopian idea, but nevertheless until
the principle is recognized and acted
upon, we will see very little substan
tial growth, that is, the selfishness dis
played in many ways will have to be
directed into channels that will result
in general good. Not tlnt we are dis
posed to find fault with any one in
particular but we should all be willing
to learn by experience. It is admitted
by all, and in some places the impor
tance of manutacturing institutious is
so much valued that a bonus Is offered
for their introduction, and yet we
have a very valuable establishment
here, and which would add much to
the material growth of the town under
favorable tircumstancus, yet is lan
guishing n consequence of keen com
petition by wealthier establishments
elsewhere. We have flour mills man
ufacturing upon whose existence a
large portion of the trade of the place
depends, and yet they are forced to
compete with foreign production. We
have merchants, mechanics, agents
and shops of various kinds all helping
and depending on each other for their
very existence and vet notwithstand
ing this mutual relation to each other,
some of our citizens are ahort-aighted
enough' to help support and build up
other places, forgetting in the mean
time that every dollar spent in that
way just takes that much away from
your neighbor, npon whom yoar own
welfare more or less depends.

RUX.K3 OF A POST-OFFICE.
1 Please ask the p. m. to lick your
stamps, s If the Postal Clerk Is in
the office please call him on the other
side of the store and ask it there is any
mail for the Watses. 3 Do not offer
to pay for your stamps until you take
time to put them on, as the clerk s
time is of but little value when busy.
4 Never bring in your mail until the
mail bai: is closed, because the p. m.
is very fond of opening the pouch after
It is locked. S If at any time you
should not iret your letters when ex
pected. then tell the clerk to look and
see for this is cunning. 6 If there is
any more than twelve children In your
family, please do not let them all call
for mail in the same day.
