One of the': most important things to be dealt with is the disposal of the sewerage, and the protection of the uiuuYius wmur, ior very oiten tney both amount to tho same thing. Farm ers' Bulletin No. 43 treats of this, and gives good advice, with illustra tions. The bulletins Nos. 154, 156, 618, 225, treat of the Home Fruit, Garden, the Home Vineyard, the School (krden, and the Home Vegetable Garden.

BB ouiau is to oe served six The Christmas Spirit " While making the usual preparations for the Christmas giving, do not for get those to whom Christmas brings little joys because of poverty not al ways poverty of purse. Many a one wearing "purple and fine linen, and faring sumptuously every day" will find little of the Christmas spirit en tering into their lives. They will be expected to "give unto others," -but few will think of their loneliness and longing jto be remembered, even by the simplest of tokens, for which they would be so grateful Mnnv r. v. heart will beat under costly garments, and the joys of those about, them will only add to their feeling of solitude. Another class to be remembered is the old people. They are grateful for even the smallest kindnesses. Many of them long to join in the fun and frolic of the younger ones, and settle back into the corners Into which they are crowded with a heartache keener than they would .have you know. Many an aged body holds a young soul, and their hearts are alive to all the hurry and bustle about them, longing to share with you even in the boister ous merriment. Let them join in your games, if they care to, and be patient with their fphionoao tv will be with you only, a little while iuust:r, uuq tney were patient enough once with you. Remember, too, the young man or woman far from home: To them, the day. will be lonely enough. Even the criminal in his cell will be remembered on that day, but the "stranger within your gates" may be sick for the sight of the far away faces, the voices of loved oues that are missed In the rush and whirl of the crowded streets. Many a hardworking boy or girl would be lifted to a high pinnacle of hap piness -by only a kind word at Christ mas time. There is no solitnrt in that of a great city to one lost in the crowd. Many a good-intentioned boy and girl havo gone recklessly "to the bad" because nobody cared. "The bad" is always ready to welcome the lonely one with music and light and laughter, and the hungry heart craves warmths and welcome and good cheer, for, with these, the gnawings of lone liness are for the time forgotten. Re member the lonely. Those "Cheap Dinners" r In many of our high-class magazines we read frequently of how cheaply the average family of two to four per sons can be fed, and if ; one could live as cheaply, off the paper as he can on it, wages would soon bo a mat ter of. indifference to most of us I have just read directions for getting !!JLa dinnuerr four Psons. Th6 thfiL G ffty. cents for th0 whle thing. There ia r h o rvi t- j- ,.. "r w -""Wiiie as rr Sough) nnoStimatf made 5 aough) , potatoes, two cents for half a Peck; eggs for salad, four cents' whole cost, of pudding x SJfr bread and butter, six cents; the mnk butter, seasoning used in all uS ?nn nfiHe CGnts; colery' five cents (no mention made of lettuce-leaves) : tea, two cents. This, the writer claims, will make a sufficient dinner for four persons. There is nothing said of fuel, gas or coal. For the farm family, who does not have to go down into its pocket every time a nickle is wanted, and who has material to burn and land to scatter the ashes on, the cost of material might be approximate; but few farm appetites would be satisfied with tho amount. For even the city stomach, there would be apt to be felt a senso of insufficiency after the dishes were cleaned up, while the "expense bill" for even that amount of food would be perilously near the dollar mark, if not above it. Bettering the World "It is impossible for "the individual to reform the world, or even to a very great extent alter the moral status of his own little corner of it. Sin, depravity, ignorance, perversion and degeneracy will always abound. We are assured, on good authority, that "the poor shall always' be with us." So long as the earth follows its orbit around the sun, so long shall the blood burn and the life current flow laden with passions and with pain. We can not defeat the law of being. But there is much of sin and shame, suf fering and sorrow, and want and de privation that could be averted if tho people were more tolerant of the mis takes and frailties of others if tho world at large were not so prone to judge all morals by one standard, and to gauge that standard by the narrow ignorance of their own placid lives. One drop of water does not notice ably swell the washings of the sea; one grain of sand is never noticed on mo ucbciu u utjacn. uno voice rareiy makes much difference in the volume of sound, and one ray of light does not noticeably increase the volume of light. One billow is never the sea, yet. the whole could :not exist without the particles. Whatever the quality of the mass, it is the particles that make It. One drop of colored liquid will tinge the whole basinful, one tiny 'particle will chemically change the whole mixture. So, one person in a neighborhood who liyes a right life, one voice lifted for purity and truth, one touch or tone of tenderness for the discouraged may color the lives of all about us,;, may Influence other individual efforts, and, the leavening matter slowly .spreading, may work wonderful results in the social scheme. As with virtue, so with vice. Wo color our surroundings. If each in dividual would but cleanse his. own dooryard, square his own life by tha measure of love and justice, the in fluence would spread, and other lives would catch tho light, and thus, in time, the day would dawn in which there would be no more tears, or sin or suffering.
