The . Rejected Stone. ' j
1 have heard a story I cannot tell wheth
er it is true or not out of some of the Jew
ish rabbis ; it is a tale concerning the text :
"The stone which the builders refused, the
same has became the headstone of the com
er." It is said that when Solomon's temple
was building all the stones were brough
from the quarry, ready cut and fashioned,
and there was marked'on all the blocks the
place where they were to be put."" Among
the stones was a very curious on"; it seem
ed of no describable shape, it appeared un
fit for any portion of the building. They
tvhd it at this wall but it would -not fit;
VfcQ ti-; it ir nnnthor. but it could not
be accomplished; so, vexed and angry, they

Vrnr fCtov vpar rolled on. and the poor stone
ii- the builders constantly
refused it. The eventful day came when
the temple was to be finished and opened,
nnl tho multitude was assembled to eee the
sight. The builders said, "" Where is the
topstone? "Where is the pinnacle ?" They
little thought where the crowning marble
was, until one said, "Perhaps that stone
widen the the builders refused is meant to
bo the' topstone." They then took it, and
hoisted it to the top of "the house ; and as it
reache 1 the summit they found it well
sidanted to the place. Loud hosannas made
the welkin ring,-"as the stone which the
builders refused thus became the headstone
of the corner. So it is with Jesus Christ.
The builders cast him away. He was a
plebeian; lie was a man of poor extraction
ho was a man who was acquainted with sin
ners, who walked in poverty and meanness;
hence the worlUlv-wise ciespiseu nun. u-.
when God shall gather in all things that are
in heaven and that are in earth, then Christ
shall be the glorious consummation of all
"Christ reign- in Ileav n th topmost s one,
And well deserves the praise."
He shall be exalted; he shall be honored;
his name shall endure aslong asthe sun,
and all nations shaU be blessed in him, yea,

The Land vs. The Sea.
Tlie Boston! Advertiser says:1 EucfUnd is
gradually approaching America. If the
process which has been going on for many
hundreds oi years contmues uncneeKca t ior

State of Labrador many look across the

year of odir Lord 1 1 ,87 1 , and se the west
coast of England so near that the Atlantic
CD . . 1
will be reduced to a strait. It is a well
known fact that the sea is encroaching slow
ly upon the east coast of England, and that
on tne west the land is gaming in me sea.
The latest startling reminder of - this is a
landslip at Whithy, a town on the sea to

"The remarks of an exchange, 'that many
of our successful lawyers commenced life as
preachers, is gracefully corrected bv one ot
the legal gentlemen referred to, who hegs
leave to state that he began life as an infant.
A country justice of the peace, on having
his attention called to the fact, as he was
about to enter judgment in a -certain case,
that he had not jurisdiction on account of
the amount involved being over two hun
dred dollars, promptly responded: 'The

Justice is said to have ruled against this
point with some warmth.
Some years since, while a judge, who now
occupies a very high judicial position in the
State, was holding circuit court in oneui wc
western counties, a case of trivial character
was called on. His honor, somewhat 'riled,'
remarked that such suits, instead of taking
up the time of the court, would be more pro

The culture is very simple, but must be

As clav soils are much benefitted by a
mixture of sand, so likewise are sandy soils
oreatlv improved by the addition ot clay,
yet in'a much higher degree ; for though it

sand to clay, yet the audition of a lew loads

feuch a dressing on a light, crawling land
is more than equivalent to any equal quanti

which are essential to a good soil ; and that
will always be found the best, which has

Sandy soils are improved by the frequent

Acre. An acre is a quantity of land con
taining one hundred and sixty square rods
or perches; four thousand eight huudred
and forty square yards; and forty-three
rl tiv hundred and six tv square
feet. This is the English atatute acre. Axx a
measuring an acre by yards, the iuual prac- -tice
is to trace off seventy yards in length '
and seventy in width ; this in a rough way
may be consiaeren near enougu 101 iuwpw

but as seventy yaras eacu way ivm

greater accuracy will be attained by meas

and "two hundred and eight feet five and
one eight inches the other. This will be
precisely a square acre, or exceeding it only
two-sevenths of a square foot. Tim acre of
Scotland contains six thousand one huudred

Be a MaS. Foolish spending is the
father of poverty. Do not be ashamed of
work, and hard work. Work for best sal
siries or wages you can get, but work for
half price rather than be idle. Be your own
master, and do not let society or fashion
swallow up vour individuality hat, coat
and boots. L)o not eat up or wear out all
you earn. Compel your selfish body to
suare something for profits saved. Be
stingy to your own. appetite, but mercilui
to others' necessities. Help others and ask
no help for yourself. See that you are
proud. Let vour pride be of the right kind,
lie too proud" to be lazy ; too proud to give
up without conquering every difficulty: too
croud to wear a coat that you cannot afford
to buy ; too proud to be in company , that
vou 'cannot keep with in expenses;, too
proud to lie, or steel or cheat ; too proud to
The Sexton and the Doctob. -A good
Massachusetts doctor met a sexton in the
street one day. After the usual salutation,
the doctor began to cough.
"Whv, doctor." said the sextion, "you
have got a cold. How long have you
'Look here. Mr. Sexton,' said the doctor,
with a show of indignation, "what is your
charge for interment
'One dollar," was. the reply.
"Well'Vontinued he, -'just come into my
office, and I will pay it. I don't want to
have you round, and bo anxious about my
htaltll." . , i V
The sextion was soon even with him, how
ever. Turning round to the doctor, he re
plied. "Ah, doctor, I cannot afford to bury you
vet. Business has never been so good as
it has been since you began to practice." -
