Look about you and you will observe the monu
ments that speak for its return on investments. This
Association will build from the humble cot to the
stately mansion; but it is conducted for the man with
limited means, income or wages.

books will be closed at 2 o'clock p. m., Thursday,

A TLEA FOR THE BOYS.
People wonder why the boys want
to leave the farm and try their for
tunes in the city. There is little
wonder when the matter it looked
into. Too little effort is made to
make the homes from which the boys
want to run away, attractive. The
almighty dollar loo often gets m the
way. Coys are not wjld animals;
they do not need pounding because
they do not do their work as well as
older persons. They have not had
the experience. One trouble is that
many farmers have too much to say
about "big I" in talking to their
boys. Why not say we or ours, in
talking about the stock or farm, and
encourage the boys to say the same?
They will learn to take an interest.
Subscribe fir a paper in their name,
and if there is something extra in
vegetables or stock, let them take it
to the fair, make the entries In their
own name, and If they chance to get
a premium, let them have it to do
as they please with t it will stimulate
a desire to attend to the details of
the farm, and what is lost by letting
them have the money, will be made
up by the extra care they will take
in preparing for the next fair, and it
will also increase the value of both
the farm and the stock. Boys like
a little fun now and then, When
work crowds and they try to have a
little sport, don't scold or growl, put
in a word yourself t the work will go
off all the easier. Do not think too
much of your dignity. Do anything
to make the boys think they are
having a good time. In short, live
with vour boys. A little fun and
good nahiK will go far towards turn
ing work Into play. When you get
a boy so he loves his work he will
love his home and his parents, and
you sijl fcave a strong arm fo rest
on ae you go &ow ine siope.
Home life is the sure test of home
character. Let the husbands grow
cross and surly, and the wife grows
cold and unamiable. The children
grow cross and savage as young
bears. I be father becomes callous,
peevish, hard, kind of a two-legged
brute with clothes on. Ibe w;fe
bristles in self-defense. They dc
velop an unnatural growth and
sharpness of teeth and the house is
haunted by ugliness and domestic
brawls. This is uot ?hat the fa mi
ly circle should be. If one mij: be
rude to any, let it be lo some one be
does not Jove not his wife, brother
or parents, f-cf pne of the loved
ones be lakeo away, and memory re
calls a thousand .sayjngs of rcgwt.
Death nuicke.ns recollections pain
fully. The grave .cannot hide tHe
white faces of those who sltep. The
coffin and thetreen ground are cruel
magnets. They draw us further
than we could go. They force m
to remember. A man never sees so
far Into human life as when he looks
over a wife's or mother's grave.
His eyes grow wonderous clear then
and he sees as tie has never seen be
fore, what it is to love and be loyed.
It is a pitiable picture of human
weakness when those we love best
are treated worst.
Encouragement js something we
naturally look for. A Utile 'praise,
a word of hope or a cheerful smile
something for the hungry soul to
grasp and the weary mind to rest up
on, as wc ctyab tbe toilsome moun
tain of life. How juaqy poor hearts
have sunken into despomfeocv. when
a little encouragement has reassured
them. The soldier looks for ,it on
the eld of battle ; it is the cheering
voice of his leader that urges him
on through the danger pf death
and crowns t,he day w.ith vic
tory. The poet and ,the artist, the
writer wl toe musician look to the
wjrld to acknowledge their genius
and give them praise, fi Is encour
agement which calls forth their nob
lest words to climb the mount of
fame until they surmount all difficul
ties and write their names in flaming
letters' upon its summit. Then let
us give encouragement to each other
in every elfort ot good, In every
noble action, in the little duties of
life, and we will be happier for it,
the world will be better, and a srall-

There is a demand for good boys.
The boy who is honest, earnest and
industrious, will not be long out of
job. There are lots of prosperous
business men, merchants and me
chanics, who are constantly on the
lookout for good boys. They do
pot look for them on the streets, however-
but in some sort of employ
ment, i hey haye no use for an Idle
boy. He is too apt to make an jdle
man. The boy that jumps inio the
first job that offers, whether it is
agreeable or not, is the boy who is
chosen when the boy-hunter comes
along. The boy trundling a wheel
barrow is taken, whjle the b,oy pjay
ing marbles in the shade s left j the
boy cheerfully minding the baby on
the front step is invited to put on a
boy's suit, while the one playing
