"IN THE LONG RUN." f
The old-fashioned saying,
So lightly expressed
And so carelessly uttered,
Is one of the best!
Oh, ponder, young trifler,
With life work begun,
The deep, earnest meaning
Of "In the long run."
For "In the long run,"
The seed will spring up
That was sown in the garden
Or dropped in the cup.
And remember no roses C
Will spring from the weed; t
And no beautiful fruit
From the unworthy seed.
How many a stripling
In trouble to-day,
JJy riotos living
With comrades too gay; I
With character shipwrecked
And duties undone,
Will do sorrow's harvesting
"In the long run."
"In the long run" will
The toiler fare best,
Who performs honest labor
And takes honest rest;
Who, contented and happy,
Hastes not in a day 3
Qr a year to heap riches
That will soon pass away !
The good and the evil, d
That bides in the earth;
The joy and the sorrow,
The pain and the mirth;
The battles ranhePded, d
The victories won, o
Will yield what is sown,
"In the long run."

I'm one of the latter; and I don't

So sirs. Brushby took up the
three pounds of brown stocking
yarn that she had been buying at

Her niece, a tail, pale girl, with
lusterless yellow hair, like braids
of dead gold, a transparently pile

'How slow you are, Clara !' said
Mrs. Brushbby, snappishly. 'I sup

It was now six months since

HOW NOT TO PRAY.
A Curious Example Cited by the Congrega
The Congregationalist, in an ar
ticle beaded 'Poor Preaching in
Public Prayer,' wonders 'if some
of the ministers of the gospel have
any idea bow much and how t
poorly they preach when they
think they pray in public.' The I
writer says : 'God is omniscient.
Why, then, should He be dis
coursed to, and this and that be
doctrinally or practically explain
ed to Him ?' Tbe editor contin
ues as follows:
'If we were not afraid of the
perilous edge of ridicule of sacred
things, we should be tempted to
illustrate what we mean by what
we can recall of the manifestation
of the fault to which we refer in
a late example. We will tone it <
down as much as may be, pre
ferring to risk flatness in place of ]
something worse. ]
The speaker informed the Lord f
that it was a singularly beautiful g
morning, and that after thi storm 4
the ocean was very quiet ; that r
calms after storms are exceeding- f
ly pleasant, and indeed useful; that
after a man has been very angry,
and gets over it, he ha. a chance a
to be ashamed of himself; that
storms themselves are salutary,
and do - things good in a general t
way; that the sun never seems so t
bright, and earth such an agree
able residence as after a few days
of cloudy weather and the gloom
of storms; that it is a blessed
thing to have sunshine in our
hearts, and we all may have it if
we will but remember that God is
the great Sun who shines for all,
and open those hearts to His gra
cious shining; that our tears of
penitence may be considered rain
drops which will fertilize the'dry
and thirsty earth of our good res
olutions, desiccated by procrasti
nation, whibic is the thbief of time;
tbat the brightness of morning, it1
behooves us to remember, how
ever, introduces quite often the
fervors of the mid-day of toil, and
-the lengthening shadows of sen
ility ; that we all mast die, and
that some die in the morning
of life, while others last till the
sere and yellow leaf of a
tremulous old age flutters to the1
ground, and leaves them-to die
at last ; that many of us are now1
in the mid-day of the world's
anxieties and sublunary concerns ;
that each morning sees some task
begin, each evening sees it close.

BROAD RIVER IMPROVE- '
The favorable report of the United
States Engineer upon the practicabili- 0
y of oppning the Wataree and Santee tE
Rivers to navigation should enecourage a
enewed effort to secure boating fa- P
:ilities on the Broad and Congaree it
Rivers, so that boats may have unob- f
tructed passage from the mountains C
o the sea. 0f
A small appropriation having been P
nade by Congress for a survey of Il
3road River, Mr. J. P. Carson, Chief tf
ungineer, under the direction of Gen- It
ral Gillmore, of the United States u
sngineer Corps, made a survey ^f the >

iur townsman, Mr. J. Reed Stone.y. t
dr. Carson. at the request of Colonel bi
3. P. Pearce, Chairman of the Com- tb
nittee on navigation of the Columbia C
3oard of Trade, gives a summary of o
its report, which is as follows, viz: ?l
I recommend that the river be P'
pened to a uniform channel of five h(
,ards wide and two feet deep from P
3u11 sluice to the foot of Ninety-Nine di
land Shoals, a distance of ninety- is
our nd a quater miles, at a cost of h
37,00; repairing the old Lochhart P(
3anal $5,000; a channel from Ninety- r
tine Islands to Green River, N. C., P'
rty-six and three-quarter miles, lo
38,000; total $80,000. of
Also, that for improving the Tyger la
rnd Pacolet Rivers $5,000 be ex
)ended. A channel of this size will Sc
e sufficient for pole boats of more tF
han double the present capacity of el
hose now used. To construct a chan of
tel "3 yards wide and 30 inches deep, ti
uitable for steamers for the 94j bE
niles, without considering the diffi- zc
ulties to be encountered on some of ei
he shoals where the grade is from ]0 w
;o 15 feet to the mile, would cost ten t
ines the above amount, which the ri
cndition of the country will not jus
ify. The population is 42 to the T

An Important Decision Against Lotteries.
John B. Stone et al vs. the State
