Speak of the bright side of your business in place of the imaginary dull side. There is nothing goes, without being propelled. You injuré yourself, your business, and your town When your liver is out of order go to the woods or some- other hiding place until you are better.^ The world looks blue to a man with a bad digestion.

Give every one you ^an reach a eolar'plexus blow that will end his pernicious activity for all time. But better even than swatting is prevention. Flies breed in tilth and their number can be kept down, by keeping the premises clean. There will be some flies, of course, no matter how careful we miv be, and these should be kept out of the house by the use of screens'. It will pay, in dividends of health and security against disease, to screen every door and window. Flies are carriers of dread maladies. To them we owe the i^ead of dysentery, typhoid lever and other intestinal diseases that reap a hea^ toll of Ufe every year. Swat the fly if be gets in-—but keep him <»t of the bouse.

William Chesser will preach his annual “Sermon on the Rock” which was the comer stone of the old Flat Creek church at White Oak. This church burned several years ago and has never been rebuilt and will never likely be on account of its close proximity to Flht Creek church built after the destruction of the old church. But each year since the church burned Rev. Chesser baa preached a sermon standing on the corner rock in memory of the' organization of the Flat Creek class.

From every view point the farming class of this country is in better shape now than at any period since the civil war. More people own their own homes and little farms, more are free from the yoke of bondage inflicted by burdensome debts; more are becoming independent each year by making a comfortable living for their families, more are waking up to the necessity of giving their children better educational advantages, and withal prosperity aud contentment seem to prevail throughout the country.
