In our new Townuship Number FIf

generally are progiressing smoothly,
,save now and then a ripple steals

l'ot enticing" aunotheris hand to come

if.we could teaoh neighbor Jonee to do
itto heighbor Smiti as ho *ould have
steighbor Smith do unto him, then the
law as it stands would prove all iltat
was claimed for it. But Iu case of a
failure to graduate them in this golden
rule, we will have to call on our flth
era, "tihe lawmakers," to try again.
Probably by making "Cuff" bear a
little ponalty, the obtject of the law
would lie more easily reached. Touch
hin as well as t.he employer, and lie
may stick more closely to his contracts.
The farmers are making strenuous
cftrts In their arrangements on the
farm'this year, hoping to wipe out of
existence the results of the disastrous
year just past. But I venture to say
that this particular vicinity will ire
munimbor for some tine the effects of
the failure of 1880. They start this
presemit crop under so many disadvau
tages that It is hard to tell which is
dreaded the most, unless it be that of
"roughness" for stock. I believe that
four fbur-horse teams could with very
little trouble, at one pull, move all the
roughness (except hay that has been
imlpIorted) 'within her limits. The
scarcity of corn Is aii item also. The
natural consequences of all this scarci
ty will be many poor horses and
mules. - Poor, poor indeed are t e
chances for the horse this year. Mr.
W. L. Rabb lost a horse a few davs
ago from nll overdraught of water,
and Mr. J. C. Morris a mule. We
were all counitinur on our oats coming
to our relief inl the middle or last of
MaR. But., alasI we will have to cal
culate again, for the oats crop seems
tied to.mother earth still. Grain goi
erally seens to be doing nothing.
We have in this new township two
large schools, one a graded whie
school, wIichm is moving along finiely.
The Principal, Mr. Scott., is an intelli
gnt. gentleman and scholar, a good dis
ciplinarian, and one calculated to ad
vaico the educational interests of this
neighborhood. Success to himit an1d
his school. Tie other is a colored
school under the supervision of a
staunch, straiglitout Democrat. Now
you see that Number Fifteen, not like
the "Dark Corner," has taken things
into her own hands, and has put
Democrats ii the places of trust. And
I'll venture to say that you won't hear
of the closing of the session of any
school in it Cl with tlhe grand finale
"llang J.f1i Davis oi a limb."
ll: this proressive age it really
seemits that evei the wee-wee folks are

FOR RESTORING GRAY HAIR TO ITS
NATUA'AL VITALITY AND 00O.QR.
IT is a most agreeable dressing, which
Is at once harmless and effectual, for
preserving the hair. It restores, with
the gloss and freshness of youth, faded
or gray, light, and red hair, to a rich
browvn, or deep black, as may be desired.
By Its use thin hair is thickened, and
baldness often though net always cured.
It checks falling of th~e hair immedi
ately, and causes a new growth in all
cases where the glands are not decayed ;
while to brashy, weak, or otherwise
diseased hair, it imparts vitality and
strength, and renders it pliable.
The Vroon cleanses the scalp, cures
and prevents the formation of dlandruff;
and, by Its cooling, stimulating, and
soothing properties, it heals most if not
all of the humors and diseases peculiatr
to the scalp, keelping it cool, clean, and
soft, under which conditions diseases
of the scalp and hafr are inpossible.
As a Dressing for Ladies' Hair'
The VIGon is incomparable. It is color
less, contains neither oil nor dye, and
will net soil white cambric. It imparts
an agreeable and lasting perfume, and
as an article for the toilet it is economi
