"It will be a sad day for our national life," says the
toard and it is right "when all the young farmers move
to town and the small, well-cultivated homesteads give way
to big landed estates."
The rush of population to the cities is truly one of
the most serious menaces to our national life, but thus far
no way has been found to check It It bad no existence
until after the war. In 18 only about 12 per cent of the
inhabitants of the United States lived in the cities. The
war unsettled the minds of men who theretofore had iieet

Country life and city life to-day are
made delightful by countless conven

did not dream. These conveniences
are, nevertheless, purchased at the
prtae of more or les of that sturdy
independence which distinguished the
pioneers, and of which George Carjr
Kggleston bas given an attractive pic

which is in a sense the story of tbe
life of his brother, Edward Egglenton.
In the days of Edward Ecu les ton's

After forty years of agitation, led
sy Liverpool merchants, the British
tovernment has just sanctioned the
ase of a weight of fifty pound in
place of the standard 'hundredweight"
,112 poundsi, and "half -hundredweight"
flfty-ix pounds). Tbe re
form was demanded because the Im
mense quantities of cotton, corn, to
bacco and other American product
anded at Liverpool were calculated by
the sellers in pounds, while the buyers
sere compelled to reckon In "hundreds-eights,"
which did not represent the
3 umber of pounds that the name 1m
jlles. It is claimed that tbe reform
will save a great amount of time ana
