Sudden Death at Oxfoud.— Mr R. Perliam died very suddenly on Thursday afternoon, at about 4 o’clock. He had resigned his seat in the Road Board, and an election was taking place to fill the vacant seat. He drove down to the polling booth to record his vote, and when trying to get into his buggy he gave a heavy sigh, fell back, and expired. He had been suliering from heart disease for some time past. His death will cast a gloom over the place for a while, as he was very much respected in the district, where ho has acted for many years as manager for Mr N. Ellis. The deceased gentleman leaves a young family to deplore his loss. Faiimino in a Xutshkix.— A Kentucky farmer is said to have condensed his practical exp'-rimmo into these rules : “ Feed your land before it is hungry, rest it before it is weary, and weed it before it is foul.”
