A, ¥ Our needs are very many, And our wants are mm the lese; We could not flip a And be sure we'd make a guess, For the prophets are foretelling Of the boom in polities And the business tide that's swelling: For the year of nlneteen-six. We would like to see quick action On the new township high school. And be sure of no infraction Of the teachers' smallest rule; .We shall hope the taction fellows Will not study up kew tricks— We will blow them -with a beMows High and dry in nineteen-pix. We do wish to see the Bisters Build their heme for sick and maimed So we'll have a place where blisters Can be cured, as has been claimed; And we'd like to see the cadets Have a place to meet and mix, Where ldds may wear their epaulets And parade in nineteen-six. e expect the postal station To be moving very soon, Which may cause some consternation, As 'twas scheduled for next June; We may hope the Tillage taxes Shall not all our homes transfix To the water cnmp'nyV axis In the year of nfoeteen-sbr. We have only skimmed the portal Of the things we'd like to see, For we are only mortal— With that statement you'll agree; But there is still one other matter That in our gullet sticks: About what will Oak Leaves chatter In the year of nineteen-six? Jt Jt JI THE NEW YEAR. The years come and go with their regular and accustomed regularity. Time is measured by aeootMja, miimtw, hours, dayB, weeks, months, years and centuries. Any of theie measurements are long, or short, just as they come to you, in your work, in your resting •pells and in your hours 9$ ««CffSSttat. <r .^«¡U. - , Years ago, when you were trawjiag in your teins, time dragged so heavily on your hands that life wm made miserable while waiting for the orb of light and heat to move on from the east to the west,and how you did wish for the passing of the day and the coming of another day or another week. How short were the holidays, and Sunday seemed to be an unending day, especially when it bad to be observed as a day of reat and of attending church and Sabbath school. In the realm of labor hours used to linger in the race, so to speak. When you were laboring out in the field, with the blazing rays of the sj>n resting upon yon, "while you were making hay as the sun continued to shine," or securing the small grain, how, do you remember how, the sun appeared to hang, depending from a resting place in the sky; it did not more an inoh in an hour and a h&lf or more, or so it appeared to this deponent. But since your majority has been reached, what a change. Now the days slip off into weeks, and the weeks into months, and the months into years in very short order. At this writing time appears to be riding on the wings of the swiftest eagle, and it is making for the great beyond at a very rapid rate. The new year is not yet a week old, but in this short time much history has been written, many new lives have come upon the stage of aotion, with many activities surrounding them; in this short time many lives have gono out, crossed over to the land of the majority. Changes have taken plaoe in every department of life. I wonder if we have been planning for the future, and if so, if we have planned as becometh men and women who are expected to act like responsible beings? It is always well to lay plans and then work in accordance with said plana* provided the plans have been laid so as to have something accomplished for good. ' The best laid plans o' mioe and men gang aft »glee," but it remains for us to try and provo by our works that Barns did not have it quite right, or that his saying did not apply to the present generation. « It is always well to aim high and try to make a oertainty in reaching your ambition in life. A high ideal will coat no more than one that is not elevating or ennobling, and it may or oan be reaohed if oare is taken in carrying into execution the plana formed in the beginning of the year. To plan and not to work will prove to be quite disastrous to life. Planning and working are very closely allied to each other, and they form a very desirable combination— and success is quite sure to crown your efforts for good in life, and victory will peroh on your banner. It is not by regretting what is irreparable that true work is to be done, but by making the best of what we have. It is not by complaining that we have not the right toola, bat by using the toola we have. "What .we are and where we are ia God'a providential arrangement—God's doing thoagh it may be man's misdoing; and the manly and the wise way ia to look your disadvantages in the face, and see what can be made out of them. Life, like war, is a aeries of mistakes, and he is not the best Christian nor the best general who makeB the fewest false steps. He ia the best who wins the most splendid victories by the retrieval of mistakes. Forget mistakea; organize victory out of mistakes." The new year holds out inducements for successful efforts in all the departments of life. The ensuing year is to be a year of great expectations, and we trust it may prove to be a year of great realizations as wellr—replete wjith the best there is in life that will be benefioial to the world in general and to our own oirole in particular. Be good and kind to the new year, so that when time haa so changed tiie year that you will hardly reoognise it, that you may have no regrets for the treatment accorded the year from the opeaing to the closing of the same. $1.50 PER YEAR EBEN E.

Why not tighten your grip on it ami not let it slip a «-ay with the parsing of the old year? No other thing could bring the pleasures that will come with the carrying out of this thought—and it is easy. Not many of these things'hat better 11« in life are easy, but this Is; with an expenditure little greater than the amount you h»ve been handing to your landlord, and It pays—not for rent, but for a home. By this time you are saying to yourself: "Now he is going to drag in those everlasting Hiilbert Houses."' Well, they are the best thing I can drag in and the very best thing you can find to buy. and they are good enough to be everlasting. Iteady now or built for spring delivery.
