As an eagle, from the height,
Looking down upon the lands, V
On forests black as night, h
Fair fields and desert sands.
Sees the traveler below V
Losing heart, as, league on league,
Long wildernesses show
.No end to his fatigue.
So-faith, amid her stars;
Beholding faur beneath
The bright orgloomy bars.
In the web of.life and death. si
Sees weary hearts that deem
The dark breadth is the whole, P
Sees happy hear.s that dream
The bright rays all their goal.
Ah! !et this faith be ours
That even 'mid the pain,
Above the present towers,
And sees the nearing gain;
While, breadth by breadth, appears.
As from the weaver's hand, qi

Deacon Doler's brook:'
Judith looked up at the clumsy,
good-hearted, hard-handed farmer,
and wondered that she had never
before seen what a true face, and
what clear, frank eyes he had.
'Forget him, Judith,' pleaded
Redtield ; and she began seriously
to think that she would at least
make the trial. 'Come over to
our house and stay with mother.
It's too bleak and lonesome for
you here, for the present at least.
Spring will be .time enough for
you to come back to the-cranberry
Judith Grey looked around at
the solitary room, and thought of
Mrs. Redfield's cozy kitchen, with
its bright-colored rag carpet, its
window lined with bloominggera
niams, and its shrill:voiced canary
bird hanging over the work-table.
'Do you think,' she hesitated,
'that your mother would be will

guest as I ?'
Duke Redfield's face grew radi
'Only try her,' he said ; 'dear
Judith, you'd be as welcome as

he was free from a visitation com

the house, as he eyed the doctor
'No, I know it.' said Dr. Ded

'Miss Grey ain't no ways ailin

feeling the edge of his axe, and

with.dignit1y, 'as a friend.'
'Oh,' said Julius.
'Will you be kind enough to let

''Tain't no use,' said Julius, roll

BILL ARP'S CROPS.
When a farmer has laid by hi
crop and the seasons have bee!
kind and tLe corn land cotton look
green and vigorous, and the swee
potato vines have covered th
ground, what an innoceut luxur:
it is to set in the piazzer in th
shades of evening and with one
feet on the bannisters, contem
plate- the beauty and bounty- c
nature and the hopeful prospect c
another year's support. It look
like that even an Ishmaelit
might feel calm and serious, aI
if he is still ungrateful for hi
abundant blessings he is wors
than a heatben, and ought to b,
run out of a christian countr,
with the Chinese plank in th
democratic platform. Every yea
brings toil and trouble and appr(
hension, but there always come
along rest and peace and rip
fruits of one's labors.
In the journey of life the mour
tains loom up before us and the;
look high and Mteep and rugged
but somehow they always disal
pear just before we get to ther
and then we can look back an
feel ashamed that we borrowed s
much trouble and bad so muc
a*uxiety for nothing. What
great pile of miserable fears w
build up every day. It's good fo
a' man to ruminate over it and rt
solve to have more faith in Prov
dence, and I am ruminating no?
I was thinking about the cro

it's all over now thank the goo
Lord for His mercies. The lae
tender shoot is about laid by. Ni
more nussing and toting aroun
and warming the milk by the mi<
night lamp. No more baby song
and dressing and undressing an<

now like a fairy and fills the houn
with sunlight. The crop is Iai

undertake to make another for

of our y'outhful vigor a kind Pro
idence enables us to bear up splei

but an old man can't-it wast

of nature. Many a time have
