An exchange tells of an old Indiana trail whose sou had married and come to and who the father supposed was striving to death and too proud to own it.

iiie old mail told it in. this wav: -I have been thirty-five yearfi back in Indiana clearing up an 80 acre farm, and it is hardly in shape, and I mortgaged it to get money enough to get John and Lizzie and take tnern home. But I found that, John, had a well improved farm of 160 acres, all paid for, and raising more corn and wheat than I had Kver seen raised before on the 6ame amount of ground. And when I started back to Indiana, John gave tne $150, so that I could py olf the mortgage on my farm. I am going to soil for what I can get for and come out and live in this country.

I don't want to live any longer in a country where a man can't tell the truth without being considered lnzy. Why, if I should take on of those eighteen fnot stocks of corn back to Indiana, they would swear it was band made and hand paiuted." is the time to BUY town, property, as, the prices are; still going np and lots are selling J.
