The way I longed to tread;
God said, not so, my child,
But stand thou here instead.
Thou canst not work for me;
I close my vineyard gate;
Thy lot in li'e must be
To meekly stand and wait.
I stand-I wait, my Lord,
Thou knowest what is best;
I yield my restless soul
To thy divine behest.
I stand with folded hands,
Outside the vineyard gate;
Hereafter thou wilt show to me
'Twas best to stand and wait.
iRITING FOR LIFE.
My dear Tom, I speak to you
t only as an old friend, but as a
edical man ; and I see that it is
Ite necessary for you to have
plete and perfect rest for some
eks. You have been overdoing
in nursing that old uncle in the
antry for the last three months,

,n stand it, added to your hos
al Rork all day, without suffer
from it ? Don't you feel to
uire rest ?'
Not the least in the world,' re
'ned Raven. 'Oddly enough,
nursing seems to have done
good. I confess to having felt
rougbiy knocked up some
eks since; but I battled bravely

sive, I thought, as we parted ; and
I arranged my work so as to be
able to keep my appointment.
The hardest task was breaking
the news to Amy, who would be
low-spirited and conjure up all
kinds of horrors and impending
railway aceidents, and who finally
dissolved in a shower of tears as I
tore myself away, burthened with
no ends of rugs and comforters to
alleviate in some measure the
moral wet blanket she had thrown
I was only just in time to catch
Baven, who -hastily opened the
door of the railway carriage.
'Jump in, Jack, jump in! Half-a
crown to the guard has secured
this compartment for us all the
way down ; .o we shall have it to
ourselves without fear of inter
ruption. Time's up; you have
run it fine. Fire away!'
He flung in my bag and the
several rugs, &c., and we entered.
The guard touched his hat and
shut the door with a bang.
- 'This door is unlocked, guard ?'
'Yes, sir ; side nearest the plat
form is always unlocked. The
other door is locked.'
* He whistled,- and the train
'I can't bear the idea of both
doors being locked,' I remarked to
Raven. 'In case of accident it
would be impossible to escape
from the carriage.'
'It doesn't matter,' he sairl, and
ten relapsed into silence.
For about twenty minutes he
remained opposite to mc, some
times with his eyes closed, some
imes with them fixed upon me in
a most unpleasant manner. All
my endeavors to draw him into
onversation failed, and after a
ime I gave them up and also re
lapsed into silence.
Suddenly he rose from his seat
and drew from the inside of~ his
overcoat a long and pointed knife,
which flashed ominously in the

s die to-night,' said he calmly
and deliberately, without any ex
itement of manner. 'I feel that
the time has come for both of us
to quit this vale of' tears.'
'Yes; I quite agree with you,
Tom Raven,' I replied-seeing
what had bappened-in as calm a
voice as his own. 'I have long
thought that life was becoming
very undesirable ; and, to leave it
in your company, with you, my
oldest and warmest friend, would
be the most agreeable thing to me
that could happen. But-you are
not married, Tom?'
'Thank Heaven, no!,.
'Remember, I am married ; and,
had you given me notice of this
wish of yours before starting, 1
would have made arrangements
and have spoken to my wife to
prepare her. Have you made
your will, Tom ?'
'No, I have not.'
'Good Heaven, man, not made
your will!- Tomn, it is absolutely
necessary for both of us to make
our wills before we die. I have
not made mine. and should not
like to leave the world with the
chance of my wife and child hav
ing to go to the workhbouse or be
chargeable on the parish after my
death. You wouldi wish to leave
your money to some one in par

~Of course I should like to leave

that it would never do to die de

'Do you know, Jack, I never

'Well, then, first put your knife

then we wil set to work. I've

A tremble c my band, a quiver

Raven even then was quit< en

secretly and quietly the porers
were assembled on the platfo-m

called to him through the wind>w.
In that moment the spell was
broken. I saw him look for his

Nay, he goes even beyond that, m

What word is most Lateful to the
lethodist preacher. Bishop Mar
win always paid cash, but Bishop m
aarvin was one and the secret of h
how be did it was buried with ca
aim. Now why is this ? Be- e'
cause my people are not going to w
pay me? No ; Because they are di
mean ? No; Because they are in- s
different ? No, but simply be- ar
cause they put it off. Here is my or
riend Gunny-bags, he expects to til
ive $50, but he has never said to qi
me,- '1 have put it to your credit il
in he store.' He expects to wait d
until December, and when we get g
to the last pull, bring in his ac- in
count with $50 credited on it, and fa
iny friend, No Discount, who can
pay his $50, is waiting for the first cr
uarterly meeting to pay the first in
ten dollars. He knows, he will S~
are tp pull up at the last and he bi
is saving his wind. T bore are a T
hundred others who intend to pay r~
from one to five dollars, but they s
let the weeks glide by and they t
don't do it.t
The amount thus kept back Il
from the preacher does not benefit W
any one. It is too small to add a~
meterially to any one's comfort, d
and yet the aggergate would re- P
lieve him from all anxiety. Si
1 was talking with a preacher lE
on a city station whose promised l(
salary wag $1,500, in June, seven
months of the year gone. He t
was annoyed. lie had received n
$300. He lived in a fine parsonage, 3
and fed his family on bulk meat, '
except when'he had company, be. t
cause he was too magnanimous to e
ask further credit from butchers, n
andI bakers, and candlestick ma- P
kers. The Church loved him, t
praised him, and at the last paid a
im. Thus it is with others. The t
Curch officers too often neglect- Y
ing every thing, to the last quar
trly meeting, find themselves
several hundred dollars behind. C
They now strike out on the home- 3
stretch, and hold weekly meet- ~
ings, and have long talks, and r
abuse stingy members, and often )
times complain of thbe preachber, and t
.erhaps increase their own con
tributions, and at the last send the ~
preacher to Conference with $30 C
less than his meagre allowance. t
Hlow is this to be remedied ?
Frst. Let each member of the 3
.Chur'ch feel that he is under as much f
obligtion to see to it that the pastor ~
is fed as the stacard.
There has growvn up in many
churches the idea that that this ~
matter concerns the stewcards, and
them alone. The people wait to
be called on, and it never called
on, never do anything at all. This 2
is a wrong. The dun does not I
create the debt; the failure to dun,
does not wipe it out.-.
Secon d. Let some aran)gCemenlt 1
be provided for the people to con- I
tribute every Sunday. What
though there are loud complaints

who are offended when they are
even asked to help others bear the

orse for them.
Let no man take a steward';

lice. To hold a place anothei
