W ould shield her without fear,

There is 110 home, 110 matter how

hat there are a great many things

moderation of our children fill our

A Strange Dream.
Our friend, (jaw in Kirkham, Sec re- iy;
tary of the London Open Air Mission '
sends us the following story, related as r0i
"an incident worth recording," by jef
one of the out-door workers who to*
preaches in the streets of Kast Lon- ?'j
don : 101
A friend gave me five pounds to give su
to tlie poor. My mind was somewhat co
exercised as to the selection of the fa:
most deserving cases, and after asking jj,,
for divide guidance, 1 went to bed. cj(
During the night, in my dream, there ITV
stood at the foot, of my bed, a good (j,
Christian man, Mr. J , whom I <j?
liad known fur ten years, and always j.j
considered, as the owner of two small
shops, in comparatively comfortable sa
circumstances; but this night the jic
look of distress on his countenance m,
was something appalling. At the \\>
same time the donor stood by my bed- w!
side, and in a very deliberate manner no
put in my hand,?counting the money ai]
?three "pounds, seventeen shillings- si,
and sixpence, then looked at me ear- f0|
nestly, and then turned his eyes to my
* j 1 > ?> ? K0/i
distressed menu ui uic u#w? m ai]
Mr. J as much as to say, "That is wj
the particular amount he is in need of,
go and give it to him." llfl
On waking the next morning, I re- s|,
lated the matter to my wife, and said, "|ia
"I ahull certainly go and see Mr. J? e(j
to-night," and accordingly went care- sj,
fully taking four pounds in my pock- m
et. I sat in his house talking with his
wife and mother for about half an 0j(
hour, hoping tliej' would let me know jn
if anything were amiss; but not a Jjr
word'was dropped about it. At last 1 jr
said : ,n
"Mrs. J I hope you will excuse e(j
me, but f want to know if there is f0
ahvthinc neeuliar in your cireum- i,E
stances at the present time, and if so, ug
if you will object to tell me?" ce
1 noticed immediately the sudden yj.
exchange of glances between the wife
and mother. And the wife replied, an
"Well, Mr. Hamilton, as you have cu
asked that question, I am bound to
tell you, my husband has a bill that ej,
will become due to-morrow for forty co
pounds, and all he has got is thirty-six
pounds, *and that four pounds he has ne
tried hard but cannot possibly get it ou
anywhere ; and though he is suffering ^
from bronchitis, yet this fearful night,
amidst wet and fog and cold, he has
gone to Croydon to try and sell enough w]
to meet the bill, or we are ruined."

the four pounds, and, with a few kind- j>(
Jy words, departed. On my way ru
home, as though evidence must be co
multiplied that J had been rightly t.j,
guided, I met an excellent young
Christian woman whom I had known co
for several years, to whom I related tjj
the circumstances, carefully avoiding
any reference to the name or the jjj

I replied, "How do you know that ?"
She said, "Because his trouble over
that was so great that for several l1'
nights he has called a few friends to be

out of his difficulty, and I was one of V

I called the next morning; he. had aT
not taken one farthing from his jouruey
to Croydon, and came home with *h
a broken heart, not knowing but wife,
; large family of little children, aged <?n
i mother, and himself an invalid, would J0<
all be turned into the street, when lo! l,e
the money was awaiting his return ! NV(
In the morning he looked at, and S()
made me look at his cash box, where wj
I saw the forty pounds; he then said : '
"Do you know, I have opened the
children's money boxes, and have got m
there two shillings and sixpence." sp
Thus, if 1 had given the three j-'1
cnvontnnn uliillillf'S and Six-I .

pence, the children's money boxes
would have exactly made up the need- pl
cd forty pounds. 'ol
The donor of the live pounds was n<!
much interested in the circumstances a i
when I told him. I also related it to 1,1
two iniidels who said it was remarka- J1"
hly strange ; but Christians say it is
an answer to prayer, and a cause for lir
devout thankfulness to God.?The
Where to Keep Browl. ;
Never keep bread in any place ea
which is either damp or close. If it of
does not actually mould, it will ac- th
quire a mouldy taste. We call to ca:
mind a case in which bread was kept
in a small closet which was always
tightly closed. After the lapse of two
or three months it was noticed that,
although the bread had not moulded,
it had so mouldy a taste as to
to be almost uneatable. It was co
supposed that the flour was in en
fault, but an investigation of the closet
soon proved that this was not the tci
case. Ti e shelf on which the bread so
was kept was found to be nearly covered
with mould, and this had imparted m<
the disagreaable taste to the biead. da
The shelf \yaa cleansed and the closet
door, instead of being closed, was al- lai
lowed to stand open all the time. By ha
these means the trouble was speedily th
The best place to keep bread is on an en
open shelf, either in a room or in a pi
well-ventilated pantry. It is better,
instead of putting it "in anything, to wi
lay it directly upon the shelf and eov- tii
er it with a towel. The bread should
not be packed closely but spread out wi
as much as possible. ol<
The Perf<>ellini of Politciii'MM.
In a company in which 1 found my I
self lately, says a writer in the New | <
York,S(ar, the conversation turned up- '
oil politeness, which some one well do- <
fined as "timely thoughlt'iilness, with '
human .sympathy behind it." One (()
member of the party told of the most n,
thorough bit of true politeness lie ever ,ra

A Touching1 Incident.
riie following is from the "Editor's
nwer" of Harper'ft, for February, t
rhis incident, told by a humane rail- ?
wl conductor on one of the roads
idingont of the city of Baltimore, is
[> good not to find a place in the
)rawer." The eutirc story is too
ug for our crowded space. It may
flice to premise, briefly, that, the
ndiictor had been very kind to thoj
inily of a poor Irish laborer, (who
,d lived 011 the road but who was aclentally
run over by the train some f
out lis before), carrying them little *
ings, taking the widow to a distant j
itholic church fre? ol" charge on Sun-1
"That was during the summer,"
id the conductor. "One night the
xt winter it was very cold and the|
nuntains were covered with snow. "|
e were running to make time, J
lien, on turning a curve, the engi-j
er saw a waving light oil the track, j
id wc soon heard some one ahead j
outing. I was then out on the plat- j
nil. The engineer slacked up audi
lpped the engine, and we got outj^
d went ahead in the dark to see|J
liat was tlfe matter. b
"There it was! A large land-slide
id fallen across the track near the I
anty of that old Irish woman. 8he
id built a tire and waited and watchfor
the train, for the curves were so
arp that we might have been plump !
>!-i- t?* .? ? --..1,1 i?- ' \r
>on rue suue uciuiu ?e njum see m. i - *
"So when we ran up, there was the
J woman, with hercalico cap,swing-;
g a chunk of fire like a revolving;
jhthouse; and there were the little S
ish boys carrying brush, like so;^
any little beavers. She had watch- ^
all that night in the cold, and, but
r her, in another minute we should
tve run into a pile of dirt and rocks
big as Barnum's Hotel. I should;
rtainly have been killed, fori was,
mding on the platform. Whati
auld have become of the passengers
id train? You can guess as well as I j
"The passengers made up about ]
*hty dollars for the old woman ; the
mpany afterwards gave her a shan,
reut free ; the brakemeu and engiers
bought her a cow, and sbe made
it very well. But when I handed
e money to her that night she said :
intlemeu and ladies, I am thankful
j ees for what ye may give me, but
Liat I did was mostly on account of
m there. He was kind and thought1
to the poor and the afflicted, and
1 ha' watched till I froze before hctr- -i
m should have come to him if I ?
uld have helped it.' It made me!x
oke ritiht up." A
We don't know when we have enuntered
a more striking illustration
an this of the self-rewarding "luxu- q
of doing good," equally applicable, D
the present instance, to the doer
d the recipient.
Most Christians use very glibly a
irases whose meaning has never
en translated into the language of Q
perience. How many professed
iristiaus really know what it is to
ny themselves, for Christ's sake, of y
iy thing which they desire. Self-de- t
ill is not refraining from those ^
ings which we are forbidden to do? iJ
at is simply obedience?but it is to
i without something which is per?tly
lawful, something which may
very much desired, yet to secure it
>uld hinder one from performing
me act of special charity. There is
liere the self-denial comes in. j.
Suppose a Christian woman wishes ;J]
make a special contribution to j
issions and decides to wear her last if
uson's bat and to give the value of
e desired new oue to that cause. She j
is performed an act of genuine self- C
nial which will not lose its reward, j*"
ippose a Christian man cannot af-|
rd to give twenty-five dollars to be- (
volent Church purposes and also get i
new suit. He determines to wear
c old suit awhile longer and give thei-foney
so saved to Christ. J11 so doing "
denies himself, and at the sameig
ne demonstrates his love for the I
il.-i 1--! I f_
aster ni such a manner uiui unngsivm>
genuine satisfaction than would |

V day in the week. j_
fhese are some of the lesser appli-l^
lions of this fundamental principle
Christianity. Find the hearing of I v
is principle upon your individual
se and act accordingly.
