Every river has its eddies, so every day
has its neap tide and flood tide. Health
gives place to sickness. The grip and
measles arejwith us. Fanny Humphrey,
on her second year as teacher In South
east Cornwall, was suddenly taken with
the grip, attended with paroxysms of
coughing quite remarkable, has been un
der her mother's careful nursing, and was
able to ride home on Wednesday of last
week. There is some prospect of her
being able to resume her school again in
a week or two. Ella Eaton is down
with the measles in the Northeast dis
trict. Some of the families have taken
their children out of school to the great
discouragement of the teacher, Miss
Patterson, who has succeeded in gather
ing a very large school for the district.
The measles are never a welcome guest,
however favorable the season may be.
Many people are reluctant to run into
them, for sometimes it requires years to
outgrow the effect of them, even with
the best of care. The same disease is
also in the College Farms district.

the margin. Such a picture is seldom
