we know of three large farms that can

We know where there are two large
areas of land underlaid with coal wait

There are many small garden lots lay

and should pay for working. Many
buildings are to be built this summer

—The 49th. anniversary of the Ad
vent of Modern Spiritualism (that is,
the rapping of the Fox sisters near Ro
chester, N. Y.) was celebrated on the 28
th ult. at the Berkeley Lyceum, New
York city. Most of those present were
elderly men and women, dignified and
earnest. There were no remarkable
manifesations, unless it was the invis
ible presence of the disembodied spirit
of Henry J. Newton, whose widow in
the flesh presided over the jubilee. The
announcement that Mr. Newton's spirit
was ■ there was made at the outset
of the services by a man in the front
row of orchestra chairs. It is probable
that the etherealized Newton had a
moderately good time at the meeting.—

Save \our Temper.
Probably 110 small article among the
indispensables of moderan life causes
more annoyance than a j>oor pen. when
writing. Some say they have nevei yet
found .1 pen to suit them. Our ideal of
of a pen, is one that seems to glide over
the paper without effort, and by its own
qualities makes the writing neater and
more legible.
Experts in writing say that the Spen
cerian Co's Pens are the best. Whether
this is so. it is not for us to say, but we
are informed that those who send re
turn i»ostiige to their New York Office
450 Broome St., will receive samples of
several different numbers, among which
may yet be found that greatly to be de
sired thing, a pen that does not spoil
one's writing and one's temper.
