The Misses Hawkins have made considerable improvement in their yard.  They have it very tastefully laid off and are planting it in flowers.  Ere long it will be a thing of beauty and delight.

I understand Mrs. Rowland has a landscape gardener, laying off her yard and arranging her many beautiful flowers.

May this kind of improvement be contagious.  Wherever is found a home surrounded by beautiful flowers, well taken care of, there is sure to be found culture and refinement, and nothing tells more quickly what kind of people the neighborhood is composed of.


Pine Log.

Neighbor John Dysert has been grinning us all out of shape this week without saying a word.  But Dr. R. happened to let the secret out.  It is another boy.

Mr. William Turner now wears a smile almost from ear to ear. It is only the fifth boy which has just made his advent into the family circle.  But Will says he is never satisfied with odd numbers.
