According to this the Dexter Leader man must have struck on to a premature April f ool's day somewhere : " Saw dust is a. good thing, and all right in its place. It isa good non-conductor, a fine thing for packing ice, and very useful for gymnasium floors ; but it don't make good pancakes." Mr. J. P.

After he has servod one year he will probably to hire a stout boy wllh au old cavalry spur in the toe of hia boot, to kick liim lnto the mlddle of' the next township. AUvays take the flrat invite to a set-up of that sort, for the second one seldom materializes. I wil :ui t iun : Liglit Ouard Hall was wcll lilUil Tueslay eveninji on the occasion of the prohibitlon address by M. J. Fnuning ot'Juckson. Mr. Fanning's style of address is quite the reverse of Mr. Bain's, the fenu being very bitter in bis denunoiation of uil who do not agrec with hiui du the temperance queation. Souie day our proliibitiou frieuds will se the folly and uselcssuess, yes, even the harmfulness of seeking to induce persons to becoine probibitionists by informiiifr tbem that thcy aro now decettful and corrupt. Thia manner of presenting tbe subject may serve to arouse and enüiuse their own party followers, but it widens tbe giilf between them and those tliey seek to win, and creates unncceaeary bitteriiess and III feeliug. Fanning's address was so extreme in thia line as to displease even some of big own polltloal followers.
