A pretty joke is told of ono of the
young lady teachers in the Raker
school. On Monday a small nrchin
entered the school room, with an ex
qulsitely dirty face and hands. The
teacher bade him to go and wash him
self. In a few minutes the boy return
ed with his hands nicely washed and
wiped. His face also had been washed
but only the lower portion had lieen
wiped dry.the rest of his fuee was drip
ping with water. On lieiug told to
return aud wije his face he said, "But
teacher I can't." Naturally surprised,
the teacher asked why he could not
follow her instruction, in as much as
lie had succeeded in washing his face
and hands and wiping them so nicety,
as fur as he had gone. The small boy
answered, while the big tears ran
down his cheek: "My shirt ain't long
enough." The answer was followed
by silence, succeeded by a suppressed
titter the young lady was so embarrass
ed that she can't look at a bolt of sheet
ing without blushing np to her ears.

the trade which does not come. Far
mers hesitate about increasing their

enterprise, will change all of this. Two
hundred men; put on the pay roll
means a thousand more population
with money to buy the farmers pro
duce as well as the shop keepers goods.
The power of self-control is one of the
best blessings that comes with sancttfi.
ed life. He who irJeth his own spirit
is better than he that taketh a city ;
better in the qualities of courage, endu
rance, diheretion and dignity. And
yet a thousand men are ambitious to
take a city where one desires to control
