The members of the family, if at all convenient, gather at this time under the parental roof. To enhance good feeling, presents are bestowed and greetings sent to ab- sent ones.

The sanctity of former times still j scrupulously surroundes it, and the sacrCdness of its portal has been but enhanced by the advancement of civ- ilization. The modern home needs neithei baltiements, nor bas- tions to protect it from the assaults of the powerful.

The building of a railroad into this district is just what the country needs -for its development, and it cannot come any too soon. We hope to have a road here before long, and that- is the reason the farmers are making this concentrated effort. They are going to organize everywhere and make a very determined effort to get a railroad, which we need the worst- way.
