Thinks and reads, lie has time for both; it is true that the hardest task and the one most poorly done is the sharpening of knives and tools. Without sharp knives the best machine does poor work, while with knives sharp, the poor machine does good work. A careful investigation of the Olizbe Tool and Sickle Grinder will convince you that it ia the best aachine ever made for the purpose. For grinding Mower or Beaper knives it is a decided success. I.

Harry Carson returned to 3sTew York City, Monday, after a week's visit in Clare with his sister, Mrs. Archie McKinnon, Coleman Independent: Will our people ever quit feeding tramps? About six o'clock Monday morning tour genuiDe hobos were seen in a box car fixing up one of tbeir number for a tour of the village. When he started out on his mission he had his arm in a sling and his coat so arranged as to bold all the lunches he and his hobo f-ietM_smight need for three flrfour days. As soon as our village will quit encouraging such class of people just so soon will it be rid of the tramp. Some people believe they are doing an injustice t" themselves. The tramp is better able to work than the average housekeeper. Don't Harbor the hobo. A few years ago it was thought very worldly minded if a person appeared on a bicycle on Sunday. JNbw, city churehes are building quarters for storiEg and cheeking them at the Sabbath services. Pastor and congregation ride them to the house of worship on tlie Lord's day, and the people of both sexes are welcomed with no thought of anything peculiar if they attend church with bicycle suit on. The return of Julian Hawthorne, the special commissioner sent out by The Cosmopolitan to investigate the famine and plague in India, confirms the worst fears.- British officials in India were not anxious to nave Mr. Hawthorne risk hi. life by a close in* spection of the horrors of plague and famine, but he is a typical American, and haying undertaken to see the real conditions, Was deterred by no dangers. Eight arid a half millions of people have already perished, and the reading Of Mr. Hawthorne's description will open tlae eyes of the world to a condition of affairs tbat is almost inconceivable in this year of jubilee. A Left-Handed Argurnent. A correspondent, supposed to be a,- dealer in vehicles and agricultural implements, writes as follows to Farm Machinery; "Anybody with half sense knows The Other Aid society will meet that if we had good roads tbe farmec-■ wouldn't wear out one-third as maaj bugiries and wagons. Most of the farmers would be riding around op those pesky bicycles. Some of theosr would neglect putting in crops to ridc- their bicycles, and wnseauentlF wouldn't buy the implements _iteE"' wanted. The worse tlie condition* of the roads,, the better for the dealers. Let us have roads that will keep the farmers from gallavant-ing around ua bicycles. Let us have roads that wilt keep tlie farmers at home attending to their crops, which wear out implements, and, when they do come $<_>• town,, let the roads be so they -?iiiV i wear out their vehicles quick.
