Our turniture business in Hawleyville is now so well known tar and near that we leel Unit we may safely for a time at least cut down our advertising expenses. An "ad" to be of value should be changed every week. We are too busy to do it, besides we heard a man say the other day that that turniture man at Hawleyville who advertises so much must be a tool (queer what big game one uns on to sometimes when he goes out with out a gun). Another more charitable friend remarked to us confidentially in an on hand way that writing "ads" out of business hours is liable to lead to soltening of the brain, mind you he didn't say we had got it, and he looked away over into the next county when he said it, but. well we are not slow to take a int It it Is a blind one. It would be perfect ly awful if we should really get it (this soften ing disease we mean) and have it get real deeply seated belore we kn3w it or before we had time to vaccinate so we are going to stop right oft short, give up our advertising col umns for a while, pocket the money that would otherwise go into the coffers of these grasping newspaper monopolists, eat brain hardening loocl and attend strictly to Business I. e., selling turniture at Hawleyville. Now for Heaven's sake don't tell everybody wiiat you think, just remember bow sensitive we are to adverse criticism and tell then that we are Bimply boycotting and playing Debs with the, newspapers lor a while, don't tell them we are tired or waiting for anything, to harden, be compassionate, be just, be con siderate, be charitable, be liberal minded one with another and last ol all BE SURE AND COME TO HAWLEYVILLE before you buy your turniture. Flease commit this last sen tence to memory and then pin it in your liat. A. G.

Eights and duties in the nature of the case presuppose laws and government of some kind; and natural laws are the foundation of social regulations such as constitute government. If there was but one man on the earth there would be laws of nature and the need of self-government. If there were but two persons on the earth and they were to live together there would be need that they should agree as to how they were to act toward each other. And so when we come to society In general we see that there must be rules to regulate the intereets which belong to men in the various relations of life. Now what is the true basis of govern ment? The laws of nature, physical, social and moral. It must be best in any case for a man to live in harmony with the laws of bis own being. So sure as man was created it was meant that he should live according to certain principles and plans of the Crea tor. In other words all good govern ment is of God, for all good laws are God's laws. Therefore the sum of all law and government is to love God with all the power of life and one's neighbor as one's self. This is the universal law of nature in the largest sense. Out of this universal law of our creat ed nature grow certain inalienable rights of the road to make it a pleasant event. The object is a good one, being to assist in raising funds for the erection of a new church at La Jolla, the lot for which wag donated by F. T. Botsford.

The doing the work standard of life is the life of the individ ual. But the individual was not created to live alone, and so the perfection and freedom of the individual must be found in society ine individual is most per fect as a member of the most perfect or ganization. Laws and government are simply the rules and regulations by which society adjusts the relations and interests of individuals so as to preserve harmony in the whole. All government is iu its last analysis self-government, or obedience to the laws of God. But if one does not gov ern himself by being obedient, then he becomes subject to that government which is constituted by those who are obedient, and who for. the sake of the common good force him to conform to the law without which there can be no freedom for any. There is always free dom to do right under the law. There cannot be freedom to do wrong, else there is no society because there is no government. O. O. Wright. HOUSES, At Quassapaug Lake.

Brakeman Moore, on Conductor Smith's train, went into the little switch house to turn the switch, and after resetting it attempted to come out, but found that the door was "out of kilter," and that he could not get out but was a prisoner. He signall ed to his comrades his distress and they tried to push the door open but could not. It was finally decided to burst in the door when some one suggested remov ing the bolt from the iron bar which controlled the door, this was done and the door opened and let the prisoner out after his hot wait in the little switch house. The Congregational church pulpit was supplied on Sunday by Eev Mr Jones of the Stepney Baptist church. He gave a forcible discourse from the text, "I was left." He emphasized the thought that each person was spared by. God's mer cy, and that it was the duty of each one to do the work that lies near at hand. He gave the message Jo the converted, bidding them to remember that they were spared by the grace of God, and should early seek Christ and Him crucified.
