Oakville, May 5.—The farmers
would welcome a good rain. The
farmers are getting disgusted with
their crops as the high wind is very
"nfavorable for both the young cot-

We are very glad to report that

speedy recovery of heart trouble.

Memories of Mother
Dear mother I love you.
Though removed far away,
Ayd in memory I see you
Quite near me each day.
In fancy I wander
With vou down the lanes.
And with a heart-hunger
I sing this soft strain:
"Oh mother, mother, mother,
I find there is no other.
Whose love-light shines so clear
Through swiftly fleeting years,
Like you my darling mother.”
No distance or time
Can bar us apart,
Dear mother of mine,
From the shrine of the heart;
So into the land
Of fancy I spring,
To clasp your dear hand
And sing this soft strain:
“Oh mother, mother, mother.
I find there is no other,
Whose love-light Shines so clear
Through swiftly fleeting years,
Like you my darling mother!”
—GEO. E. PENTECOST.

Tang’ewood, May 5.—The cloudy
threatening weather has benefitted
gardens, crops and pastures. Crops
are not suffering for rain, yet it
would greatly help them.
Those • who have planted cotton

The world is full of joy and cheer,
Of beauty and of song;
There’s happiness for everyone,
And those who trudge along
With gladness glowing in their hearts
Are mighty sure to tind
That life is friendly to us all,
And fortune’s hand h- kind.
There may be clouds of grief or pain
That sometimes dim the view.
But after just a little while
The sun comes smiling through;
So, help yourself to happiness
Wherever it may be,
For God has filled the world with joys,
And all of them are free!

Members who are buying or mak-

In making furniture at home
avoid too many small pieces, for
they clutter up and give a spotty
appearance. More often time,
money and energy are better spent
on one larger piece, that is more
In constructing, take time to do
work well. Watch for rough edge'
and nail ho'es. See that these are
smooth and well filled. It is the
small details that give the article
an unfinished appearance.
Do net attempt to make article
ornate b, on the other hand em-
phasize simplicity, for "simplicity is
the keynote of all beauty." Better
results will be obtained from the
simple straight line and through
careful construction, with an excel-
lent finish. Very few applied de-
signs are ever pleasing.
In the purchase of furniture, first
of all decide what piece or pieces
are most essential to the comfort
and happiness of the family. After
one knows that such a piece is need-
ed be able to discriminate between
ihe desirable and the undesirable
piece. Success in having a livable
living room is not obtained through
f i'lowing styles in buying furniture
but in the purchase of pieces of
rood quality rather than of several
of a cheaper make. When practic-
ing economy buy a less expensive j
make but Ire sure that it is good of
Be satisfied that the furnishings
harmonize. For example linoleum
rugs and over stuffed furniture ao
net look well together. The individ-
ual pieces when well grouped make
a more interesting room than the

illows can be used to advantage.
1 lie ordinary console table is too
. mail and frail looking. If such
are to be used select mirror of good
quality and a substantial table.
When your furnishings are simple IJJ
curtains and draperies should har-

in texture and color. Both theatri-
