Wanted. A girl to do house

A paper written by Judgo J. G.
Higgins on Forest Tree Culture, was
read by the Secretary, which, by re
quest of the Club, will be published
in full in the Journal. It contains
very many valuable suggestions.
Sonic discussion arose among the
members of (he Club, upon a ques
tion by Mrs. J. H. Reed as to the
dying off of coltonwood trees. Mr.
Griffin said he had been told that
after three years of age, cotton woods
suffered by cultivation. Mr. Ernst
corroborated Mr. niggins's assertion
that tho cotlouwood flourished
where there was abundance of
moist ure by giving an instance of a
cottouwood 8 years old, one and a
half feet iu diameter, with roots as
big as his arm and 22 feet long, fol
lowing the well curbing to the water.
He was satisfied they flourished best
in a moist, sandy soil.
In the "drawer" were queries as
to the desirability of barbed-wire
fences, and as to the relative merits
of horse aud hand cornplantcrs. All
who spoke on planters signified
strong preference for the horse
planter, for uniform depth as against
shallow and irregular planting by
hand-planter; aud because it packed
the ground above the seed. It was
slated also that the rows could be
better kept in shape. If the hand
planter had any friends in the club,
they didn't champion its cause.
The discussion of barbed-wire,
iron fences showed that the mem
bers of the Club were in favor of
some method, of more clearly indi
cating to animals the location of
the fence than was possible by the
use of wire only. Some suggested
a (op board; others objected that
this would requiro additional iron
posts every eight feet, which would
make it too expensive. Judge Hig
gins had seen zinc used in place of
the upper wire. Instances of great
danger and injury to man and beast
were given by Jacob Ernst and P.
S. Griffin, and the discussion was

What a truly beautiful world wc
live iu ! Nature gives us grandeur
of mountains, gicus and oceans, and
thousands of means for enjoyment.
We can desire no better when in
perfect health ; but how often do the
majority of people feel like giving
it up disheartened, discouraged and
worried out with disease, when
there is no occasion for thi3 feeling,
as every sufferer can easily obtain
satisfactory proof that Green's Au
gust Flower will make thcra as free
from disease as when born. Dys
pepsia and Liver Complaint is the
direct cause of seventy-five percent
of such maladies as Biliousness, In
digestion, Sick Headache, Costivc
ness, Nervous Prostration, Dizziness
of the Head, Palpitation of the
Heart, and other distressing symp
toms. Three doses of AugustFlow

against doiii any damage to any prop

sacred ground, the ill-bred shall not.
l'ureiits arc cautioned against per
mitting their children to visit tho

tield has been fixed at three dollars,
which sum will be charged in all cases
except where the secretary is satisfied
of the indigency of the applicant, that
course has been found necessary on
