The ability to think deeply and for

turn over his stock frequently to keep

A Romanco in Real Life.
About the year 1830 there lived in
the village of Ellon, near Aberdeen,
Scotland, a young shnetnuker doing
a prosperous business. He married
and during the first four years a son
and daughter were born.*
About the end of those four years,
for somo canto unknown, tho hus
band and wife mutually agreed to
separate, the father to take the son
and the mother the daughter.
The next year the daughter died,
lu the meantime th« father and son
flailed for America and settled in
Canada, the father working at vari
ous occiipiui <n6, afoircii instance* ml*
About the year 1S50 lie received

a*lmlf years old, entered the profes

borhood of Toronto, where about the
year 1800, he married.
The father, believing that his for
mer partner in life had been dead
about eleven years, and since the son
had married, he felt lonesome and
took unto himself a second wife.
The son, after teaching about ten
veals left the profession on account
of ill-health, for more active duties, :
and finally located himself in Essex. I

In the summer of 1877 the f. thor

Those Who Live in Glass
Houses, etc.—The proverb, “Those
who live in glass houses should not.
throw stones,” dates back to the un
ion of England and Scotland, at
which time London was inundated
with Scotchmen. This did not
please the Duke of Rockingham, who
organized a movement against them,
and parties formed, who went about
nightly to break their windows. In
retaliation, a party of Scotchmen
smashed the windows of the Duke’s
mansion, which stood in St. Martin’s
Fields, and had so many wiudows
that it went, hy the name of the Glass
House. Tfle Duke appealed to the
King, who replied: “Steenie, Steenie,

bp-careful’now they fling stones.”—
The Superb Crop of 1877.
