THE LEGEND BTXAtmrTL.
In his cuaailH . all alone,
•mi eUng on ifn- floor ol 11
Prayed the Monk in deep contrition
For hi* sins of Indecision—
i for greater sslf-dcnlal
valuation and in trial:
[1 was eoooday by the dial,
And the Monk was all alone.
Pnddenly, as if it lightened.
V.i unwonted splendor brightened
\ll within him aud without bim
In that narrow cell of stone ;
.And he saw the Blessed Vision
s if our Lord, with light Elysian.
Like a vesture wrapped about him.
Like a garment round him thrown.
Not as orucifled and slain,
Not in agonies of pain,
\.<t with bleeding liami- and feet.
Did the Honk bis Master see ;
Hut as in the village street,
In the house or harvest field.
Halt and lame and blind he healed.
AVhen he walked In Galilee.
Iv nn attitude imploring,
Hands upon hi- In.-..in crossed,
Wondering, Worshipping, adoring,
Knelt the Monk iv rapture lost,
Lordj he thought, 10 Heaven that reiguost,
Who am I, that tun - thou deign**t
To reveal thyself lo me '
Who ami. that from the centre
< »f thy glory, thou saoulcUt enter
'I bis poor cell, m.V guns! Io bs
Then amid his exaltation,
Loud the convent bell appalling,
I nn ii.- belfry (.tiling, calling.
Rang rhrongh court and corridor,
With persistent deration
He had never heard before.
li was now tlrr appointed hour,
AVhen alike, iv shine or show er,
Winter's cold or summer's heat,
To thf convent portals came,
AH the blind and halt ami lame,
A 1 the beggars of the stret t,
For their daily dole of food
Dealt them by the brotherhood ;
And their almoner was he,
Wnottpon his bended knee.
"Wrapt in silent ecstacy
i tf divinest self-surrender,
Saw the A'i c ion and tho Splondor.
Deep distress nnd hesitation
\1 Ingled with his adoration.
should he go or should he stay f
Should behave the poor to wmi
Hungry at tneconvenl gate,
Till the vision pissed away f
Should he slight bis heavenly guest,
Slight this visitant celestial,
For a crowd of ragged, beetial
Beggars at the convent gate /
Would the Vision there remain ?
Would the Vision cams again I
Then a voice within his breast
Whispered, audible and clear
As if to the outward ear;
•'Do thy duty, that is best;
L- aye unto thy Lord the pgel I* 1
.straightway to his feet he started,
And with a longing look intent
On the blessed Vision bent,
Slowly from his cell departed,
Hlowfy on his errand went.
\t the gate the poor were waiting,
Locking through the iron grating.
With that tenor to the eye
That is only seen in those
Who Kifltd their wants nnd woes*
Dear lhe sound of doors that close,
And of feet that pass them by :
Grown familiar with disfavor,
Grown familiar with the savor
Of the bread by which men die!
But to-day, they know not why,
Like the gate or Paradise
Seemed lhe convent gate to rise ;
Like a sacrament divine
Sccined to thevn the bread and wine.
In his heart the Monk was praying,
Thinking ol* the homeless poor—
What they suiter and endure ;
What we see not, what wo see ;
And the. Inward voice was saying :
'Whatsoever thing thou doest
To the least of mine and lowest.
That thou doest unto mi 1 !"
Unto me! but had the Vision
Come to him in beggar's clothing,
C.iiin' a mendicant imploring,
Would b* tiben have knelt adoring,
Or have listened with derision,
And have turned away with loathing "'
Thus bis conscience put tlie quesiion,
Full of troublesome suggestion,
As at length, with hurried pace.
Toward his cell lie turned his face,
And beheld the convent bright
AVith a supernatural light,
Like a luminous cloud expanding
Over Uoor and wall and ceiling.
But he paused with awe-struck feeling
At the threshold of his door,
For the Vision still was standing
As he left it then "before.
When the convent bell appalling,
From its belfry, calling, calling,
Summoned him to feed the poor*
Through the long hour intervening
It had waited his return,
And he felt his bosom burn,
Comprehending ail the meaning,
AVhen the Blessed Vision said,
" Hadst thou stayed, 1 must lmve fled.

This little book is most timely, for It supplies ,
in a concise and easily to be comprehended form I
just that information which every woman should J
have, and will save untold suffering, not only at
childbirth, but before. 11 has been most highly
commended by the press and by medical men.
Dr. Dio Lewis, speaking of it, says : "I have
read it with care. It is unpretending, solid, free
from kinks, fatherly, brotherly, and clothed with
language so simple, dignified, and strong, that I
am sure it will secure a warm place among all
infellgent and earnest people."
Henry AV'ard Beecher's paper says: "It Is an
ttttereiting and plausible argument, and the
course recommended cannot fail to be bene
ficial."
The New York Mail says : "It is a work whose
excellence surpasses our power to commend."
The New fltoht says: "It is one of the
most valuable additions lo our stock of domestic
medical lore that has appeared for many years."
li shows women how they should live so as to
avoid the peine and sufferings of child-hearing.
Nn person who takes it uj) will put it down nil
he has read it through. We may add that the
language is so chaste and pure that it will de
light the most fastidious, and we are glad to
know it is meeting a large sale, and that a house
of such hiirh standing as that of A. Williams ,v
Co ,of Boston, have taken the agency for the

A TRACT OF LAND,
lying in the county of Botetourt, Virginia,
CONTAINING 47S ACRES,
on which is situated the celebrated watering
place, known as
DAGGER'S OR DIBBRELL S St*KING.
This spring is beautifully situated at the foot of i
Garden mountain, in the county of Botetourt,
Virginia, nine miles from Clifton Forge, on tho
Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, and directly on
the proposed line of said road down the James

commodate 200 persons, consisting of a
LARGE HOTEL,

The mineral properties of the water are diu
retic, aperient, and general alternative. This j
spring h;is been visited for tlie hist fifty years by i
jiersons afflicted with dyspepsia,.diarrhoea, nu
ralgia, diseases of the bladder and kidneys, and
female diseases, who hare experienced great re
lief from the use of the water, and in many in

200 visitors the present summer (1871); and were
it now in the hands of an enterprising proprie
tor, would be one of the most valuable pieces of
property in Virginia, and is one of the best in

a very scientific physician, who is entirely fa

Virginia, in his work on Virginia Springs, says :
" Dagger's Springs are very valuable mineral ;
waters, and will compare favorably with our I
first-class mineral Springs.*' In addition to the I
valuable properties of the water, a large portion
of the hind attached to the Springs property, is
very valuable for agricultural purjioses, pro
