Howpver ll.at may be, it iscertain that,
tnking all the mi'roarfs in iheUniled

rates of at lenst fifleen per cent. And
i.o it proves that every inftance of legta
lative inlerference thus far has been an
expensive nct for thc people, It wusthe
farmera themselves who were tho most
anxioua for llie repoal of the granger

that by pu'ting a chi'ck upon coinmerce

he Btniled uudiblv in the lieariutr of an
otlier boy, and finally he 'laughed out
of the corner of his mouth,' as the boys
say BOinetimes. And thia was the way
ot it: Ue thougbt be would be aick one
tnnrning (to avoid a piece of work) so
lie was Dermitted to retire to hiaroom
on the plea of illness, which be did, in-
wardly rejoicing; anu spying irom tue
window a companinn he called out in
high feather, 'Kee 1 Golly! Nate, I'm

"Wlut a tangled web M c weavp,
When flrnt wc practice to delre."
His father overheard the remark about
his indisposition and proceeded to cure
the malady of that boy, by giving him a
drink of bitter herba. I think, and lt
would Becni that that bittcr portion (and
perhaps olhers) had a good etlect, as the
boy became a tuan resppctable and re-

A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory' ;"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities or
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
