In reply we will jut ay that he was planting eorn, and tue pitch of the wheel in the planter struck in harmony with that of the wheels in his bead, and according to the same natural law which caused the falling of the walls of Jerioo his mental machinery was thrown into general disorder. While the roads and weatner aia not permit the usually larre gather ing for Memorial servioes at this place ouuday those who were present listen ed to a sermon, the thought and de livery of which causes it to stand equal to, if not excel, any that has been delivered at Sharon for some time.

We noticed in the Northwest of May 20th a correction of what we said April 30th, concerning the Ladies Aid Society of Grelton. For ourselves we wish to s&y that if we have been misinformed and made a mistake we are ready to apologize and hence beg the pardon of the ladies of Grelton. But in glancing over the correction we note the following: "Young ladies' baskets were auctioned off to the highest bidder." Which is to say that the basket together with its young lady was to go by chance to some young man, it, was not known who. If that isn't a "game of chance" what is it? And one of the principle things the Christian church was in stituted to overth ro w. Little Emerson. Lupton, the picture maker. ELEKY, Elery, O., May 24th.

Aralstonite, writing in that excel lent gastronomic journal, What to Eat, makes a few sensible suggestions in re gard to the diet that ought to be posted. in every household. He says that the healthiest and purest lives come from those who do net eat meat before the age of 15. Potatoes, sliced thin and fried, are in digestible. While tasting delicious, they afford no real nourishment and cause a derangement of the liver. . Cake clogs the stomach. All rich pastry is poison to the liver. Soft cara mels and creams are also bad for any one with a liver at all rebellious. When you get old, look out for your focd. Do you every notice that grand. father's face is notiv as jolly as it used to be? His strength cf mind also seems slowly disappearing, though ha is get ting fleshier every day- He ne"eds a change of focd. ' Probably he has been eating buckwheat cakes and sirup, white bread and butter, sugar, fat meets, etc. Give him lean meat and fish, cracked wheat and potatoes, barley ca!:es, rye bread or southern corn cakes. Try it, and instead of moping and sitting round the house all day you will find him run ning around lively as a cricket Maybe, on the contrary, he is growing thin and pale. Then he needs buck wheat and molasses, fat meats, mashed potatoes in milk, northern corn, cracked wheat and fish, oatmeal porridge and fruits every morning. All rules have their exceptions, and the diet described for the mass may not answer for exceptional cases, but the following directions aro good for the majority: . Milk is the simplest and most natural food. If you cannot drink it, your stom acb is in a diseased condition. Cheese is a good substitute, if mild, fresh and made from pure milk and cream. Per sons who live mostly cn vegetables have the best nerves and the best complex' ions. Red pepper is an excellent condi ment. Its effect upon the liver is re. markable. Malaria, intermittent fever or congestive chills cannot endure the presence of red pepper. Pure red pepper (known as cayenne) shculd be on every table. Ill health is caused largely by im proper food or ty food which is in a bad condition when it is eaten,. CATHARTIC iMi., , , TPTf, ALL MjrstTfMMttMtlas' Cue. Troy, a. May 26. George Murniy informed the agent at the Cincinnati. Hamilton and Dayton depot that ha had been shot while sleeping In a box car.
