A New Artist.

Yesterday there came to town another artist, who is probably the youngest member of his profession in this community.  It is understood that he will reside for some years in the family of Brother Lorus Pratt, who seems to have taken a remarkable fancy to the young fellow.  He has not advanced very far as yet, but it is believed he could not have chosen a better teacher to instruct him, nor a worthier household in which to take up his temporary abode.  We heartily congratulate Brother Lorus and his wife on the new acquisition, the first visitor of the kind that has yet come to their doors.  Father, mother and child doing well.
