Editoe op the Saline Observer:— Your readers may wish to hear something about Western Michigan. This is a nice town of about 1,500 inhabitants on the shore of Lake Michigan. Nothing but the blue waters and bounding' waves can be seen as we look toward the west. Steamers go to Chicago daily from here. A lighthouse is kept at the entrance of the harbor. There is also a U. S. life saving station here. Its men are kept with strict military rules, a patrol watch is kept along the shore day and night; boat drills, and life saving from stranded vessels are gone through with in due form and energy. The men are strong and robust and are very courteous. This is a prohibition county and there is not a saloon in the town, and I have not seen a drunken man here. Farming is mostly confined to fruit growing, the peach and grape crop is abundant this year. I never saw such peaches, there has been over 20,000 bushels of peaches shipped from this part daily for many weeks. The same may be said of other towns along the lake. I see but very few sheep in the fields, and ouly a cow or two at a farm and those are generally "tethered out." Money is plenty and no one tells us how low wheat is, or what they get for their wool, but often tell how much their peach orchards are worth. Apples are a failure, pears a /air crop. I expect to go farther north this week along the shore. Life insurance is readily accepted and is well spoken of. More by and by. C. M. Fellows. I 7* CORDON, The Pioneer Painter.

The question -whether morality can he adequately taught in school is one that has puzzled various American educators. Notably some public school principals have heen inclined to answer it in the negative. A triumphant affirmative has, however, been uttered from a quarter whence one would perhaps least look for it— France. Eleven years ago a law was passed in France malring public education entirely unsectarian and taking away from the clergy the right to supervise instruction. At the same time a compulsory law for school attendance was passed, and one making it part of the teacher's duty to give the pupils training in morals. With the thoroughness that characterizes the French educated classes the teachers set ahout their task. They report that lying is less common than formerly, and that "bullying, scribbling on the walls and torturing birds and animals are all decreasing." Moreover, politeness and neatness are on the increase. Anything more gratifying than this prospect or more hopeful for France could not he recorded. On one occasion 30 public school children were asked what they would do if they found a purse containing money in the road if they were on their way to a fair and had no money of their own. Out of the 80, 23 knew that it would be stealing to take the money and use it for their own. If some more decided and xlfrrsevering effort in the direction of teachingmorals were undertaken in our schools, perhaps our criminal population would not increase so fast. In December, 1892, the faculity of the Michign Agricultural College appointed a committee to prepare a course of reading especially adapted to the requirement of farmers, gardeners, fruit growers, stock breeders, etc. The course was outlined and circulars issued. So many expressions of appreciation have heen received, that the managers have been encouraged to earerallyrevise the course and take steps to widen its scope and increase its influence. The State Board of Agriculture have made provision for the printing, oorrespodence, postage, etc., connected with the course, so that the only expense to members is for hooks. The primary object of the F. "B. B. C. is to promote agriculture and kindred pursuits. The circle offers a systematic course of reading. It furnishes books through the secretary at greatly reduced prices. It acts in a limited manner, as a bureau of information on agricultural subjects. All cannot enjoy a course at the Agricultural College, but no one is so situated that he cannot cultivate habits of observation and study. The aim has been to supply a a course which shall Ivirnish practical information and assist those who desire to secure some knowledge of science ; as applied to agriculture. It is believed there are many who are ready to embrace the opportunities offered by such a course. The course is not limited as to age or occupation. All persons interested are invited to join. Old and young,fathers and mothers,boys and girls,send in your applications. Farmers' boys and girls, are especially urged to undertake systematic reading. You are surrounded by a great laboratory. The fields, ^gardens, orchards and meadows are you,r class rooms. Interest your fathers and "mothers. Ask questions. If you are unable to find an answer by consulting tho index of your book, write to the secretary and he will refer it to the proper authority. No oue is too old to join the circle. Let us all undertake the regular thoughtful reading of good books, in place of the aimless, careless reading of newspapers. While it is recommended that granges, patrou's lodges, alliances and other farmers' organizations form circles for reading and discussion, yet the great value of the course will manifest itself that those so situated that reading in circles would be impossible. As the name implies, it is a "Farm Home Reading Circle." Do not let the coming winter season pass without taking up the work in one or more of the classes. Five classes are offered: Soils and Crops,Iiive Stoek,Gardec and Orchard, Home Making, and Political Science. These classes were outlined by men prominent in their special lines, and, so far as it is possible, are arranged progressively. It is urged that the course be taken up, as recommended, and finished.* However, if for any reason books further along in the course are desired,tkey may be ordered and credit will be given for their completion. No requirement is mado as to the order in which classes shall be taken up. For full information address F. B. MUMFORD, Lansing.

When the British house of lords voted flown Gladstone's home rule bill, they were not satisfied with simply casting the vote and letting it go. They had to accompany the act with taunts and derision, and the report made of the scene was summed up in the three words, "Rejected with laughter." In that laughter the British house of lords sealed its own doom. In.England a generation ago xmpleasant questionings began among the common people as to whether the Almighty had really ordained that a country should he loaded down with a hereditary nobility that had the privilege of making laws >f or it. A little timo ago there came together in London a great body of the people called the National Liberal Federation. Before its assemblage in London this organization issued a manifesto to the British public hinting that the house of commons might need to "mend or end'' the house of lords beforeattending even to necessary legislation on other lines. That was a sufficiently significant hint. The resolution unanimously adopted at the convention< declared in so many words that the class* of hereditary legislators should he abolished. As truly as the old earth swings onward mats orbit, just so truly is the day not far off when the British house of lords itself will he by the people of Great Britain "rejected with laughter."

H. CONKLTN. It is some kind of a comment—we hardly know what, but some kind anyhow—that the parliament of religions attracted to itsjmeetings a greater number of sneak thieves than any two of the other parliaments had done. Why was this thus? The fellows robbed people while they knelt in prayer and while they listened spellbound to tpulpiti eloquence.
