AN IMPROVEMF.T.
It is with the greatest pleasure
we record the fact that increased interest is being taken in the Farmers' Institute. The annual meeting, held on Tuesday evening last,
was a vast improvement over pre-
fious meetings. It has been decided to hold meetings every two
months and tbat they shall be made
as interesting as possible by introducing tbe social side as well as the
business or practical side.
The Institute is deserving the
support of the community when it
shows a desire to go ahead 'end improve its opportunities as it has
done. The matter of exchanging
views on different subjects of local
interest was taken up, aud it was
generally conceded that much more
good would accrue from this method than from any other source.
Then, again, there was the question of making it so interesting
that the ladies might be induced to
take an active part. If the ladies
can be induced to take an interest
in these meetings, there is not the
least doubt but that they will become a huge success. We wish
thc board of officers every success
itt their endeavor to increase the
membership and interest in our
Farmers' Institute.
Following is the  result  of  the
Pool  Tournament   no.v   engaging!

Chamberlain':, Cough Remedy
This preparation is i t-nded especially for coughs, co' ��� croup,
whooping coligh and influenza. It
has become famous for its cures of
these diseases over a large part of
the civilized world. The most flatter i'ng testimonials have been received, giving accounts of its good
j works; of the aggravating 9:u\ ] er-
| sistent coughs it has cured; of severe
colds that have yielded oromptlv to
its soothing effects, and of dangerous attacks of croup it has cured,
often saving the life of the child.
The extensive use of it for whooping cough, has shown that it robs
that disease of dangerous results. It
js especially prized by mothers because it contains nothing injurious
.nd there is not the least danger in
iving it even to babies. It always
cures and cures quickly-.���Sold by

THE   DIFFERENCE.
The following story is told of a
zealous paTson and a shepherd who
was not a regular churchgoer:
'"Well, John, I have missed your
facr in church."
"I dinna doot that."
"And have you not been 1��
church   all   this time?"   was the
parson's nex; question.
"O't aye have I; I've bee:, many
times hi the kirk ower the hill."
"Well," said the parson, "I'm a
shepherd myself, awl do not like to
see my sheep wandering into other
folds ami among other .pasturage."
"Well," said John, "that's a difference ye ken; I never mind where
they pang il" they get better grass."

The acetylene gas explosion at
the resi lerxe of Miss Lister at Cen

wrecked the whole back portion of

nephews, yorm^ Kirkland, was
there at the lime and wa . severely
burned, though not seriously, his
face and eyes escaping the main
force of the explosion.
The friends of D. Robson, Provincial Government Agent here,
will regret to learn that on Mont ay
afternoon hi suffered a stroke of
paralysis that has deprived him for
the time being of his power of

walk home from his office, but hi.,
