The year is coming to a close and much farm work which should have been sions this year wiil have to be carried over for. another year. Winter weath er came on earl> and unexpectedly and caught many wood piles aa empty as the mid-summer.

Mrs. T. R. Bevis, who went to a hos pital in Washington for treatment some few months ago, haa returned, a little ?improved. but is quite feeble yet. We hope she may soon be about aa usual. W.
