On Saturday, January 1, the church will hold Its annual meeting and election, this year at North Cornwall. The church expenses this year have been heavy as there was insurance, extra plumbing and painting of the chapel, so it behooves all good members to be extra liberal in their donations at this season, for while there is usually a deficiency, this year it is very live ly to be larger than usual. The Christmas entertainment will be given by the children of the Sun day school, next Sunday evening, when special music, recitations and special decorations will recompense those who make an effort to be pres ent.

Myron Curtis is planning to soon remove his family to Florida, where Tack Frost refuses to reside. Mrs Elisha Roraback is in very poor health. Her daughter, Mrs Mal lett, of Kent, has been with her dur ing the past week last few years, not a word of the high, prices of cows, of feed, of labor, no mention of the high price of meat, butter and other necessities the farm er must buy, how can you hold your peace and submit and still toll on as In the past? If such a statement given out to consumers as the reason for adding a cent a quart to the price they must pay, making it nine cents for this winter, will not arouse and force you to action, what will? Read 'nent that beginning October 1 the milk companies had to give the farmers 4 1-2 cents a quart instead of four cents as the price had been since last spring, and then take the price at which you sold your milk month by month from April to Oo tober, and see If the average Is not 2.73 instead of four cents, and 4.13 for this fall and winter instead of 4 1-2 cents as stated and don't ponder over it very long, but just say, "We'll Just take that 4 1-2 cents or better," and go ahead and get it. The consumers won't mind our having a share of that nine cents they pay. There is no time like the present. Figuring out the average price from April, 1908, to April, 1909, we find it was only 3.342 1-2 cents a quart, anu from April 1909 to April, 1910, it is 3.43 cents a quart, which you will see is a raise of a fraction (.08) of a cent a quart. Can you live on such a price at that? You perform the labor with increas ing regulations as to equipment, etc., for a trifle over a thira of the price paid by the consumer. How Long? Brookfield.
