PAY AS YOU GO.
The host of 21II rules for successful
housekeeping' -M-iid making both cutis
of the year meet, is "Pay us you go."
Beyond ull countries in the world,
ours is the one in which the credit is
the most used und abused. Pass
books are the banc and post of
domestic economy, a perpetual
plague, vexation ntul swindle. Abus
ed by servants at the store and the
house.disputed constantly by house
keepers and dealers, they lire tempta
tions to' both parties to do wrong. ""I
never had I ha!;" "We neglected to
enter this;?" "1 forgot to' bring the
boo!-:;'' '-Never mil d, we'll make a
note of it;" and ,-oit goes.. But tire
worst of it is that housckcc|K*rjH are
tempted to order what t hey have not
the means to pay tor, and when the
month or quarter comes for settle
incut they are straitened. A family
can live respectably oh ?. moderate
income, if always tiny take the cask
in hand and buy where they can buy
to the best advantage. They will be
careful first to get what is necessary.
Extra comforts will be had, if they
can afford thetti. Hut it is had policy
to buy on credit. No wise dealer
sells sti cht aply on credit as for cash.

agricultural world on last Thursday
which has so enlivened things of
both the animal and vegetable king
dom that everv thing now seems to
whisper of plenty and domestic joy.
Added, So t his, the people here were
afl'ordcti the opportunity of attending
oil Sunday .las! a very impressive
Sunday School Lecture delivered at
the Baptist Church by the Rev. I). F.
Spigner, whose love for and devotion
to the great Sunday School cause to

lectures that peculiar iinpresMvcncss
which incites the heart to pure and
ennobling thoughts. ) have been in

School have secured the promise of a
lecture from Mr. Spigner on every
first Sunday in each month, fcvery
body in easy distance would do well
to attend these lectures, as they are
calculated to instruct flic man as
well as the child. Two extra
coaches attached to yesterday's up
accommodation train, as it passed
through <lamisc.li, left the pleasing
impression upon the minds of the
people here, that the tide of immi
gration had at last begun to How to
ward the seat of our local govern
ment. May that title continue to
How with ?i cleansing ami purifying
effect until every stain of misrule
and anarchy shall have been forever
Again we see another instance
where murder in the deepest dye is
palmed off for insanity. If such bo
countenanced by both Judge and
jury, as was 1 he ease on last Fridriy?
in t he Priester trial, we cannot eX
peel ten years hence tho most cold
blooded or diabolical murderer in the
land to be tried for anything else but
insanity. This is certainly getting
to be a growi ig evil. Asylums were
hot instituted lor criminals* and it is
not the conscientious duty of twelve
jurors and a judge to send such
t here. Hanging has always been re
pulsive to our people, but at the same
time It has wholesome effects, and
no'.hing short of hangi ng is capable
of producing such effects; and it
should make no difference after an
outrageous murder has been com
mitted, as was Priester's, if he does,
act a littleqtieerlyi and the formation
of his head is hot exactly that of a
Webs c:', he should he bung. Stich
Ii money as our courts seem disposed
to sanction, in stub cases as this,
only weakens the fear for bad men to
commit high-handed deeds.?True
