Of course it is not to be expected that every subordinate grange in the land is prosperous; but from the purposes the or der seeks to accomplish and the material with which it has to work, it ought to be4 everywhere not only prosperous but pro moting a beneficent work. We have no t.ar or suspicions that the grange will tail. Very far from it. The farmer, whether he be amembetr of the order or not, cannot af ford to let it die, Its maintenance underlies the prosperity of the Individual--the pros perity of the agricultural class underlies the national prosperity. The drift of the thought leads us to consider the importance of agriculture and the relation of the agri culttitistf. to the commonwealth. We come hack to the first thought of the value of a pirosperous grange to the progress of the armner. Tihls proposition rightly under stood will not be questioned. We ought, therefore, to expect an enthusiasm on the part of the membership, and a continued growth both in numbers and influence. Cir cumstances and surroundings may, and most probably often do, retard or destroy many a subordinate grange that would be otherwise efficient. But even here there ought to be enthusiasm. The surprise is that in so many instances, where there is in telligence, some enthusiasm and an abiding itlLh in the result, the grange has come to a standstill antconsiders itself fortunate it it has been able to hold the members who joined when the order was on its high tide. Let the worthy master, overseer and lec turer, with any other efficient members they may call to their help, study the peculiari. ttis of their grnnge and work up faithfully to that. It iay be a social supper, a spell ing school, an interest in musIc, literary performances, the study-of some science al lied to agriculture, a debating club, or a plan to save or t urn an honest penny ; any rny or all of these are worthy candid and sartetul son'lidertibn,. and whatever is the bent of the neighborhood, not in hostility to the purposes of the order, should be kept ironulnently torward.-'$a. Suffering for a Lifetime. Persons afflicted with the rheumatism often suffer for a lifetime, their tortures be ing almost without remission. The joints and muscles of such unfortunates are in most cases shockingly contorted and drawn out ot shape. To afford them even tempo rary relief, the ordinary remedies often prove utterly useless. Hostetter's stomach bitters, on the other hand, is avouched by persons who have used it, to be a genuine source of relief. It keeps the blood cool by promoting a regular habit of the body, and removes from it impurities which, in the opinion of all rational pathologists, origi nate this agonizing complaint and its kin dred malady, the gout. Besides this the Bitters remedy disorders of the stomach, liver and nerves, prevent and eradicate in termittent and remittent fevers, promote appetite and sleep, and are highly recom mended by physicians as a desirable medici nal stimulant and tonic. From all parts of the country reports come of the immense sales and increasing demand for that deservingly popular Sew ing Machine, The Old and Reliable " STAN DARD," the price of whi,.h, the proprietors wisely reduced to $20 including all the at tachments, and at once secured for them a popularity among the people, tar beyond that ever yet attained by any other ma chine at any price, the consequence of which is agents are leaving the old high priced ma chines, and seeking territory for the " STAN DARD." Knowing from experience that with the best goods at the lowest price they can outsell all other Machines, where the superior quality and low price is made known. This splendid Machine combines all the improvements. It is far ahead of all others in beauty and durability of its work, ease of management. light running and cer tainty of operation, is sensibly made upon sound principles; with positive working parts all steel, and can be safely put down as the very perfection of a Serviceable Sewing Machine, in every particular, that Will out last any Machine, and at a price far down below any other. It is thoroughly warrant ed for five years. Kept im order free of charge. And sent to any part of the Coun try for examination by the customer before payment of the bill. We can predict equal ly as large a demand for themn in this sect tion as in others. Families desiring the best Machine manufactured should write direct to the factory. And enterprising persons wishing to seize the chance should apply for so desirable an agency. See advertisement in another part of this paper. Address. Stan dard Machine Co.. Cor.
