It Is n matter of satisfaction that the tnanj
and great bargains I have offered this Spring
have been appreciated and largely taken bj
the trading public. Our trade has never beet
better, and although we havo had a strong
and efficient force, many times, evtn whllt
doing our best, we have not been able to wal
on all our trade. I take this occasion to tbnni<
the people for their generous patronage an?
to assure them that during the month of Maj
iny stock will be more attractive than ever
Already I have had to order goods, and I wil
keep my stock full by making fresh orderi
from time to time.
My clothing trade has been unusually good
I still have many good bargains to offer it
this line.

A mother once said : "I hope, dea
hildren, that you will never let youi
ips speak profane words. Rut, now !
vaut to tell you about a kind of swear
ni? which T heard a good woman speal
bout not long ago. She called i
vooden swearing. It's a kind o
wearing that many people beside
hildren are given to when they ar
.ngry. Instead of giving vent to tliei
eelings in oaths, they slam doors, kicl
lie chairs, stamp on the floor, throv
lie furniture about, and make all th
loise they possibly can. "Isn't thi
list the same as swearing?" said she
Il's just the same kind of feeling ex
ictly, only they do not like to say mos
Lwftii words; but tliey force the furni
iire to make the noise, and so I call i
vooden swearing.' I hope, dear chi!
Iren, that you will not do any of thi
cind of swearing either. It is bette
o let alone wooden swearing, and al
>ther kinds of swearing.
Perfect, unquestioning trust is th
,vay to peace. Do not wait to see ; d
)ot ask to see; but believe in God, an
je at peace.
