She Forgot Her Wrongs.
Yes, abe forgot them '?Angry words
That out the heart like sharpest swords;
Tea, (he forgot them!?Unjust deeds,
The wrong that envy surely breeds
In meaner natures, but no stir
Of baser passions marred in her
The conquering power of purer thought,
Ever remembering who had taught,
"Father, they know not what they do;
Forgive them!"?and she wished It so.
Wrongs ?he forgot them, one by oue,
Though never yet a kindness done.
A generous act, a kindly speech
Would seem her very soul to reach,
And there remain a lasting thought
To b? with happy memories fraught;
nnrnrna nrniid and vain.
Id gratitude she felt no pain,
But rather Joy, which on her face
Ita lines of light knew how to trace.
I wonder did ahe long ago ,
Learn lemons of unfathomed woe,
That she forgets her wrongs alone, I
But never once a kindness done ?
Every duty we omit febscures some ,
truth we should have known.
The highest exercise of charity is
chArity toward the uncharitable.
There is no fit search after truth 1
which d< es not, first of all, begin to 1
live the truth which it knows. ]
Life is serious because it is a preparation
for eternity, and death is serious <
because the preparation is then over. 1
Christ comes witn a Diessing in eacu
hand?forgiveness in one and holiness ?
in the other?and never gives either to '
any who will not take both.
Those who seek wisdom eo as to be
made wise unto salvation may find in
themselves the flowing of that river f
which makes glad the oity of God. (
"What are another's faults to me? I
I've not a vulture's bill
To pick at every flaw I see,
And make It wider still. .
"It Is enough for me to know <
I've follies of my own. 1
And on myself that care bestow, f
And let my friends alone."
Sunlight is often the very best medicine,
especially for children and elderly

A man is not responsible for the na- c
ture of his mind any morn than a farmer
is responsible for the nature of the

or of the soil he treats.
We are to keep the heart pure by l
keeping it in fellowship with Christ; f

io Keep me tongue pure, uy u?iug it

While Reason, like a Levlte, waits
Where prleat and people meet,
Faith by "a new ana living way," c
Hath rained the mercy-seat. .
While Reason but returns to tell 1
That this Is not our rest.
Faith, like a weary dove, nath sought
A gracious Saviour's breast. r
Were every noble mind sensible of d
the extensive information, of the lofty
and sublime ideas, of the exquisitely r
fine feelings whioh result from occa- i
sional retirement, they would frequently
quit the world, even in the earliest t
periods of youth, to taste the sweets of r
solitude, and lay the foundation of a
wise old age. t
It has been observed that those are 0
the fixed stars that tremble most. Bo c
Christians, who are fixed immovably
in the unchangeable love of God, are
as stars fixed to the heavens in their
orbs ; yet they are most of all in trepidation
and trembliDg, when tbey re- i
fleet upon themselves, and think that, 1
instead of being stars in heaven, they
might have been fire-brands in hell. c
The longer we live the less we speak *
of our love to God, and the more we 8
dwell on God's love to us. As we (
climb the hill of Christian experience ?
we see the ever-growing horizon of the i
ocean of divine tenderness, and we be- i
come ashamed even to mention the lit- <
tie pool of our love that lies far away i
in the vale beneath. Besides, we come <
to see that all true love to God in us is i
only a reflected gleam of his love to- <
ward us. "We love him because he j
first loved us." 1
This monument is built of marble,
and the fonndation is thirty-six feet
deep and one hundred and eighty-seven
feet square. *
The structure itself, at the level of
the ground, is fifty-five feet square,
and five hundred and ninety-one feet i
high, including foundation. 1
The walls are fifteen feet thick, at
the base, leaving a space twenty-five
feet square in the center, and as the
wall rises it gradually tapers in from
the outside, until at the top it is only j
six feet thick, but the open space on the
inside is uniform to the top. i
An eight foot stairway ascends from <
the base to the top, where there are
windows to look out at. This stairway 1
is In sections, and there are fifty sepa- 1
rate flights, from one platform to an- 1
other, and there are nine hundred i
steps to the stairs, but as you cross the
platform fifty times, it requires over i
one thousand steps to reach the top. "
There is also a steam elevator extend- j
ing to the top, though not now in use.
There are one hundred and twenty- j
five electric lights, arranged from base ]
to top, with which it will be lighted, j
when Congress decides, by an appro- i
priation, to open it to the public. ^
Thus far the huge pile of marble has i
cost the Government one million,
three hundred thousand dollars, and it ]
svill cost at least ten thousand dollars a j
year to keep it in condition for visi- ]
if frnm rplif? hunters. 11
The lower section, first built, is f
greatly disfigured by scaling off at the ]
jeams, where the large blocks come to- ?

The True Gentleman's Portrait. s
The following was found in an old
nanor house in Gloucestershire, Eng- i
and, written aud framed, and hung 1
ver the mantel-piece of a sitting *
oom: "The true gentleman is God's r
lervant, the world's master, and his '
>wn man. Virtue i3 his business, *
itudy his recreution; contentment his (
est, and happiness his reward. God ^
s his Father, Jesus Christ his Savior, '
;he saints his brethren, and all that s
leed him his friends. Devotion is his 1
jhaplain, Chastity his chamberlain, J
Sobriety his butler, Temperance his
jook, Hospitality his housekeeper,
Providence his steward, Charity his x
treasurer, Piety his mistress of the (
house, and Discretion his porter, to let
in or out, as most fit. Thus is his
whole family made up of virtue, and
ho is the master of the house. He is
necessitated to take the world on his
way to heaven, and he walks through
with it as fast as he can, and all his
business by the way is to make himdelf
and others happy. Take him in
two words?a man and Christian.

By a recent decision of the courts, a

It is truly said "A nation's literature
s a nation's thought and character in
jrint." This fact of itself is full of
significance. Who would hastily
ipread forth on tlje printed pages his
nmost life and character? And yet
ve cannot write without doing this.
The page of book or paper is a strange,
fet unfailing tidal mark, telling unnistakably
how high we have risen or
low low we have fallen. Just as no
)etter declaration of the degenerate
ife Pompeii exists than the sentences
raced on the walls of its exhuman

in his pocket not acquired honestly
his prayer is a sham, and he mus
make restitution if he expects ever t<
have God hear his prayer." Thereup
oil a merchant from Dallas, Tex., ros<
in the audience and told a story tha
emphasized this point. He had, h<
said, got dishonestly from men in hii
business some $5,500, and had built i
house with the money. Then Mr
Moody happened along and preached
on this subject of restitution and th<
merchant was present. "I hearc
you," he said, pointing to Mr. Moody
"and 1 went out into the street con
science stricken. I went straighi
home and told my wire that we musi
sell that house and restore the money
And we did. We held an auction
and our carpets, our laces, our furni
ture all left us, and with the proceed;
we made restitution." The man ther
told how he and his wife started agair

had prospered. His credit, his pros
perity had never been so good.

Cure for Diphtheria.
j A correspondent of a Victorian paper
Should you or any of your family be
r attacked with diphtheria, do not be
alarmed, as it is easily and speedily
[ cured without a doctor. When it was
, raging in England a few years ago I
accompanied Dr. Field on his rounds,
3 to witness the so-called "wonderful
k cures" he performed, while the pa;
tients of others were dropping on all
i sides. The remedy, to be so rapid, \
t must be simple. All he took with j
him was powder of sulphur and a \
I quill, and with these he cured every
; patient, without exception. He put a
1 tcaspoontui or nour 01 orimsioue uiu;
a wineglass of water, and stirred it
. with his finger, instead of a spoon, as
I the sulphur does not readily amalgat
mate with water. When the sulphur
was well mixed he gave it as a gargle,
and in ten minutes the patient was out
1 of danger. Brimstone kills every spej
cies of fungus in man, beast, and plant .
, in a few minutes. Instead of spitting
i out the gargle, he recommended the
r swallowing of it. In extreme cases,
. in which he had been called just in
the nick of time, when the fungus was
too nearly closing to allow the gargling,
he blew the sulphur through a
quill into the throat, and after the fungun
had shrunk to allow of it, then
the crarerlimr. He never lost a patient
i from diphtheria. If a patient cannot
. gargle, take a live coal, put it on a
f shovel, and sprinkle a spoonful or two
, of flour of brimstone at a time upon
5 it; let the sufferer inhale it, holding
I the head over it, and the fungus will
i die. If plentifully used, the whole
. room may be filled almost to suffocai
tion ; the patient can walk about in it,
. inhaling the fumes, with doors and
windows shut. The mode of fumiga?
ting a room with sulphur has often
i cured most violent attacks of cold in
the head, chest, etc., at any time, and
i is recommended in cases of consumpt
tion and asthma.
[ What Others Say.
[ Mayor Hewitt and tbe St. Patrick's
HE DECLINED TO REVIEW THE PA1
i Harper's Weekly.
1 It is indeed, to many persons evidence
of peculiar courage upon the part of the
Mayor that he shoud not of course
1 accept the invitation to the review.
) They are persuaded that the declinar
tion will be visted upon him at the
> polls, and that he will pay the penalty
; of declining an invitation which it is
t not convenient to accept by Irish hos.
tility whenever he is a candidate. The
. Mayor understands this as well as any?
body, and in his remarks, as reported
? he left the committee under no misap.
; "It Is not a legal holiday; and you
3 ask me to leave my work to review
1 your parade; and you speak first of ^
i the vote cast by the Irish and by your
i society. Now I may be a candidate
for Mayor next fall or for President,
and I may want all the votes I can get.
Every one knows that the Irish vote
is strong enough to elect any candidate
. in this city for which it is cast: but for
] the purpose of getting this vote I shall
not get down to the level of consenting
, to review any parade, be it Irish, or
Dutch or any other nationality. I
. shall review no parades except those
which I am officially required as
- Mayor to review."
For such a franli, manly, and lion*
orable reply every good citi-?
f zen is greatly indebted to the Mayor,
and amid the universal servility of
? politicians to this, that, and the other
"vote," it is refreshing to hear a public

1 Archdeacon Farrar tells what is im!
peratively wanted to-day:
We want a new order of clergy, who,
bound by vows, not life-long but tem
poraryand revocable will make their
homes among the poor, sharing their
1 burdens, costing nothing; livingsimply I

untary offerings of those to whom they
minister; working iimong the most
" wretched with brotherliness and

1 counselors by proving themselves their

want an army of laymen, who like
' the Franciscan tertiaries, but with
more diffusive and more instructed energy,
will deliberately devote their
i lives to the improvement of the world.
