Carpenters were busy, and villagers who happened to pass that way found that extensive repairs were going on still no one presumed to question .the Quaker with respect to his plans. These repairs completed, furniture found its way into the house A yoke of oxon was seen on the lurm The villagers were astonished to see the Quaker driving an elegant horse, and riding in a new buggy.

Clariborne F. Jackson, a native of Kentucky, was once governor of the State of Missouri The most remarka- ble fact connected with the history of nit, life is perhaps the statement that :ie married five sisters in ono of the most respectable, wealthy ind distin- guished families in the Slate that as soon as one wife would die he would go and marry her sister in reasonable time. Of course, some of them were widows when he married them. In connection with the marriages there was a stand- ing joke told 'at the expense of the Governor, which was that when he went to ask the old gentleman's con- sent to marry the last venerable father is reported to have said Yes, Claib, you can have her.

Probably no class of people are com- plied to be more economical th.-in far- ners; but in the end they enjoy lile quite as well as any other of 'citi- zens. A merchant may dress bolter than a farmer but could we read the anxieties of his he it> to sup- port his family in he is to pay his notes at the he is to collect doubtful debts, and many other things, we should decide that the fji- mer, with his new suit of clothes cnco in three years, and his plain stjle of livina, takes mure real enjoyment of I.lo than the merchant or professional man does. 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. Just think of ihe reckless lolly of leaving a farm wagon out expotod to the sun and rain, winter tor and summer, as snme farmers do seem that such farmers are pat- all Not only wagons, b'ut by farm implements are left out and rain" be ruined by sun branch of economy" most important well painted, and undcfOP implements in use. when A rich farmer may be able to _ to be careless in this respect, but the farmer of uiodeiate means Nor can fVrmers afford to use the old style, cumbrous farm tools that do poor wort, and require much more time to do their work than the improved implements do; and there also is economy in buying the best implements that nsiat, because lime is money, to say nothing of the su- perior manner in which the best im plements do their labor, by which crops are increased But iu all of your efforts to economize, don't neglect to give your children a good common school educa- tion at least, as it costs but a trifle to send them to the district schools now1 everywhere established and see that they attend regularly, and that they learn their lessons. 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.
