But farmers should live wirhi-i their incomes, however small they may be. It is not so much in saving as in taking care of what you have that in st affects your incomes.

No farmer living can afford to rear a family of children without a fair school education. Buc one of the best aids in giving childien a general knowledge of what exists in the world, and what is transpiring therein, are the newspapers aud- inag.t- zines of the day, und you will find it jconouiy that pays well, to subscribe or them liberally, as no farmer exists hat has ever repented of laying before [lis children a generous supply of the best cuircnt news and literature. lowance ol tobacco nod punk is added as indispetisible for the long journey and are deposited in the same casement This mode of burial or disposing of a body was observed by other bands of the tribe living in the far west, but been entirely abandoned.
