Trusting- God in Little Things.
How prone we are to tbink tbat God'a
staudards of magaitude are tbe sanie as
ours ; tbat what wo call great be calls
great, and tbat wbat wecall littleseems
little to bim! Tliis tuougut too otten
aifects our prayers to God. We feel
free to pray to bim for grcat tbings as
we view tbeiu : for a revival : for tbe
couversion of a soul ; for tbe saving of
alife; for' tlie 'prcscrvatiori ol our goou
name : but we are uot always ready to
ask God's Iiclp in prcpariug a dinuer or
in wnting a letter. let, in tact, God
is sme to liulgc our warits and perplex
ities by our staudards; and be niakes
no demand on us to come up to lns! Is

birtbday party is quite as absorbing a
tbciue in prospcct to our little ones, as
tlie presiuential election is toany ot us
We know tbat tbo niaking of a kite or
tbe diessing of a doll is as surely a
subject of eugrossmg uiterest to a cbilu
as our business affairs or our persoual
relations to companious and frieuds are
to us. And we are by no nicans in
clined to robuke our little ones for bav
ing a diffcrent standard froin ours in
tbe nieasnrenient of tbe incidents and
experiences of tbeir persoual lives. In
dealing lovingly witb our cbildieu, we
adapt ourselves as far as possible to
their staudards of conjparison ; and we
take pleasure in meetiug their etty
wants and triiling dcsires, as though
tbese wero all the world to us also.

years younger tlian Tom. Tbere was
not tronble for bim to gct work. He
was a williug, active fellow, stout, and
always ,full of good humor. When he
was flfteen years old, Mr. Itoland, wbo

Tom was deligbtcd witb tbe offer.

Pretty well for a boy of fifteen ! You

Of late, Tom bad set bis mind on be
coniing rich, with no otber obiect tban
to bave plenty of money and enjoy life :
so tbese texts troubled him. He said
notbing in reply, tbougb be thougbt a
great deal. After a while he gatbered
tbe money togetber, and, giving it to
bis mother. said : "Here. mother, you
keep tbis and nse it as you tbink best."
Soon after be went to bed, and before

He bad all bis wealtb in railroad bonds,

one pack in sucb a way that he could
noc take it apart. In bis dream be
seemed to leavo his native Iioine and
passed away iuto a strange country.
As he traveled on, the country became
very beautitul, and be tliougDt it was
just the place for him to live and enjoy

tbere. Tbere weie springsaud streams
and grass and liowers, trees and truit,

inir a Innrr distniirrt be saw far ahoad

it, and found nglit botoro nim a strange
appearinsr gate standing partiy open
Tbe walls ot the city were very lngu,

wbicb Tom bad read, tbese were very
beautitul. White ho looked at and ad
mired tbe beauty of the stoncs, his ear
caught tbe sound ot music conung
tbrougb the gate; and wlien he canie iu

was far more beautiful tbau witbout.
"Ali," thougbt he, "this is the place I
want ! That city sball be my bonie
Iu it I am suro that I sball be hnppy
and cau enioy my property." So be
started togo through the gate; butasho
tried to pass, be tound it too uarrow to
admit him witb bis wealtb. It was too
narrow even to allow him to walk
througb at all with his arms by bisside.
Tbe gate was iu the shape of a cross,
and tor loni to pass tbrougb, bis arms
must hold notbing, bnt bo stretched out

and worn out, he canie to the gate

said he, "I've gono entirely arouud tbe

did try, but the pack was too large.

away from tbo gate. While he stood
wondering wbat tbis nicant, a strango

sternly, "Wero you trying to force that

Tom looked around him. The moon
was 8bining through the window on his
little bed, aud be saw tbat he was in
bis homo yet a poor boy. As soou as
he could understand that it was all a
dream, be said almost aloud tolumsclf:
lbank God that it was only a dream !
But it was awful ! What if it had been
real ! It may bo real some day if I
give my all for wealtb. To lose my
soul forover, to bo shut out of beaven
eternally, just that I may become rich !
No! no! no! I cant sell my soul as

The Guest "Wlio is Welcome.
Tbe ideal guest has iust gone, and

There is no senso of relief at her de
