A druggist in one of our large oil ies
said lately, If I am prompt and careful
in my business, I owe it to a lesson
which I learned when I was an errand-boy
in the house of which I am
now master. I was sent one day to
deliver a vial of medicine just at noon,
but being hungry, slopped to eat my
luncheon. The patient, for lack of the
medicine, sank rapidly, and for some
days was thought to be dying.
"I felt myself his murderer. The
agony of that long suspeus made a
man of me. I learned then that for
everv one of our acts of carelessness or
misdoing, however petty, some one
pays in suflering. The law is the
more terrible to me because it is not
always the misdoer himself who suffers."

young people. Tlie act of carelessness
or selfishness is so trifling, what harm
canitdo? No harm, apparently, to
the actor, goes happily on his way;
but somebody pays. A young girl, toj
make conversation, thoughtlessly repeats
a bit of gossip which she forgets i
the next moment; but long afterward
the woman whom she has maligned I
finds her good name tainted by t lie J
A lad, accustomed to take wine, persuades
a chance comrade to drink with
him, partly out of a good humored
wish to be hospitable, partly, it may
be, out of contempt for "fanatical reformer."
He goes on his way, and
never knows tnat his chance guest,
having inherited the disease of alchoJism,
continues to drink, and becomes
a hopeless victim.
Our grandfathers expressed this
truth in a way of their own :
For the lack of a nail the shoe was
For the lack of the shoe the rider
For the lack of the rider the message
For the lack of the message the battle
But though we do not see it, we do
well to remember that it is there;
and to remind ourselves at the beginning
of everyday, that each careless
act, each unkind word in it, will
be paid for, not by us, perhaps, but in
the want or pain of some one.
(lnp?n Victoria ami I lie Musicians.
A story about 4he Queen, which is
paid to be well authenticated, is being
circulated, and it is too good to be lost.
On one occasion Her Majesty had !
invited distinguished guests to dine at
Windsor Castle; it was, therefore,
timf flip Court band
UCVXOOMI J fi.MV v..v
, should prepare itself to perform special
selections of music. The leader summoned
the men to meet for lehearsal
on the Sunday. There were two
Germans in the band named Schrader
and Gehrmann, who were Wesleyan
Methodists, and whose consciences
would not allow them t.i spend the
Sabbath in a mere musical rehearsal.
They told their scruples to the lender,
ivho, however, peremptorily ordered
them to be present on pain of in-,
stant dismissal. They did not hesitate
fnr a moment in refusing to attend.
On the Monday morning, on presenting
themselves at their quarters,
the leader, in violent language, order
ed them to be gone.
The poor fellows walked sadly away,
and not far from Windsor met the then
Bishop of London driving to the
* Castle. .Stopping the carriage on
their signal, he heard their tale and
promised to speak for them to the
Queen. Before the day was over the
leader of the band was summoned into
Her Majesty's presence. The
Queen inquired what had become ol
the two German Methodists, one of
whom, as being one of the best trombone
players in the country, was a
great favorite at Court. Tne leader
explained that he could not allow
absurd relgious scruples to stand in the
way of a soldier's duly. The Queen
commanded that the men be immediately
restored to their post, and added,
"I will have no persecution in my service
for conscience' sake, and 1 will
have no more rehearsals on a Sunday."
Prevalent Personal Sins.
Some one has said that there is not

and writing against the exceeding sinfulness
of sin ; but there is great need
for preaching and writing auainst the
exceeding sinfulness of sin ; but there
is great need for preaching and writing
against the exceeding rascality of
lying, cheating, and stealing. Doubtless
that is true. The pulpit aud the
press are too general?are not sulliciently
specific in warning the people
*,, "of sin, righteousness, and a judgment
conic." They become too
vsvuch occupied in denouncing the
grosser and more general forms of
iniquity, and are not sufficiently careful
to 4,take the foxes, the little foxes
that, spoil the vines."
All Christians agree that lying is a
great sin. "All liars have their part
in the lake which burnetii with tire
aud brimstone." But he who willfully
deceives another by word, look, or nod
is as really a liar as is he who tells a
. great big falsehood, there is, in the
true sense, no such thing as ''a white
- lie," no more than there is such a
~ thing as a "little sin." Any sin, no
matter how little, constitutes its author
a sinner; and any lie, no matter how
"white," constitutes its author a liar ;
^>vand God's word tells where all such
shall have their portion. Much harm
comes to the Church through the
practice of deception aud unfairne.-s
among those who profess to be Christians.
"Buy the truth and sell if not,"
is the divine injunction.

The All-Sccini; Eye.
One day, the astronomer Mitehc
was engaged in making some ohserv
tions on the sun, and as it desoonde
towards the horizon, just as it was so
ting, there came into the range oft I
great telescope, the top of a hill a1 ot
seven miles away. On the top of tin
bill was a large number ofappietree
and in one of them were two boj
stealing apples. One was getting tl
apples, the other was watching I
make certain that nobody saw then
feeling that they were umiiscovcrei
But there sat Professor Mitchell, sow
milefcaway, with the great eye of h
telescope directed fully upon them,so
ing every movement they made a
most as plainly as if he lwd been ui
der the tree with them, So it is oftc
with men. But the eye of God is n j
on them, and not an action can I
concealed. There is not a deed, thei
is not a word, there is not a thougl
that is not known to Him.
