Of all the dreary places, deliver tis frotn tho dreary iannliouse which so many peoplo cali " hoiue." Hars íor a frout gate chickons wallowing beforo the door ; pig pens elbowing tho houso in the rear ; scraggy trees, novor oared for, or no trees ut all ; no ilowermg ahtubs, no uentness no trimness. And yot a lfiwn, and trees, and a noat walk, and a pleasant porch, and a plain fence etrouud, dü not ooat a great deal. They oa be Becured littla by Httle, at odd times, and tho expenso hardly feit. And iL tho timo coinés when it is best to soll üha farm, fifty dUars to invested will oftop bring back íívq bandredt For a tnan is wrong who will uot inscnsibly vivo a liighur prico for suoh a farm when fwi thinks oí the ploasant suTtoundjngs it bflb! bis wlfc aaid ohildren.
