Throughout tho templed woys of life,
ltcstlcss, wo como end go;
Aud 'mid our oarcs arid toil and strife,
Wo little quiet know.
But when in sileneo soft and sweet,
Is ended life's short ICQBC,
Qcntlo us day tito night doti) meet,
Wo pass to pcrfeot penoo.
Eyes llint oro doped to early sight,
Can never wtiko to weep;
Nor pain, nor woe, .nor grief, nov blight,
Can move that slumber deep
Ears that to ovcry sound aro stillod;
Cun ncvcrinoro bo stirred;
With Borrow never oan bo filled,
Nor pained by cruel word.
So, hearts of dust ell griefs forsake,
They never break nor blood;
Tho living heurts that throb and ocho,
Our tendor pity need.
Oh! restfu' sleep! Oh, calm repose!
Where all life's triuls cease,
Thy silver stream forever flows
To laud of perfect peaoo.
Then let us in good deeds forget
Tho grief that fili? our eyes;
And from thoso days of sail regret
Shall fragrance sweet arise.
And sanctioned this lifo ?hall bo,
With puro and holy aims,
Until, ut lust, wo como to ROO
All human needs und claims.
And fiod in them our power to tntiko
Tho lives of others blest,
So they with us to hope .shall wake
To sense ot joy and rest,
And whether painless sleep is death,
Or quickened life's increase,
Its gent?o touch is but tho breath
That giveth perfect peace.
Soon after the children of Israel pass?e
over thc Ked Sea they began to murmur
bud to long for tho flesh pots of Egypt
and tl.cy would gladly havo returned tc
bondage if they had been permitted to di
so. They might have known that ho wilt
delivered them (rom captivity by stupend
ous miracle would bc sure to pr?vido foi
them, but human fuit li was weak thirty,
four hundred years ugo, us it is now. Thc
providence of Cod, perhaps without mir
ado, brought thc quails ond they sol tieri
mound thc camp in such vast numbers as tc
supply tho multitude of people. So fur tn
wo can leam from tho record, this suppl)
of food lasted only for ono day. (lOiodui
1G: IS.) About u month niter this, us wt
learn from Numbera ll 4-35, there arose
another murmuring from tho fame cause
they lopped for more quails uud Cod sen
thom. This time they como in counties!
millions, oud as tho sequel showed, cad
quail brought with it, a rebuke from tin
Lord, lt is common to this day for enor
mous flights of quails to moko their wai
across Arabia, Thoso which fed tin
Israelites wove somewhat out of their usua
course, but tho "wind from tho Lord'
which brought this about, though certainly
providential, that is foreseen and arrang?e
for, may not have been miraculous; nor un
wo to BUpposo Unit extraordinary manifesta
(ions of divine power arc ever uitidc unies
they uro specially oallod for, or that wha
wo call tho supernatural will ever need
lessly take tho placo of tho natural. Eu
whether by mirado or not it was Cod win
sent thc quails. Ho was displeased will
tho pcopio, not, wo oro euro, bocausi
they desiicd meat, but because lliey dis
trusted his providence, ond while lie sup
plied their wanta, he at tho samo timo pun
i.ihed them for their distrust in ii wa;
which was wonderful then and is wooden
ful now. At that time it was not kuowi
that tho flesh of quails, so delicious to lin
lm,te ot first, soon becomes repulsivo to.titi
appetite and iudeccl disgusting. Tho Lot?
who made thc quail, mid gave its flesh thu
character, indiscoverable by tho chemist
which unfits it for long continued uso a
food, said beforo tho quail was sent, "Y
shall not cat ono day, nor two days, no
live days, neither ten days, nor twent
days, but even a whole month, until it com
out at your nostrils, and it bo loathsom
I uuto you, becauso that ye havo dcbpisoi
tho Loni which is among you and hav
' wept before him soy i ot?, 'Why carno wo ou
of Egypt??" Num. 1G: 19.
To this doy tho flesh of tho quail rctuin
tiic same peculiarity, and (hough considere
a great delicacy, eau bo outcn only n
intervals. It is even now a common thin
among sporting men to moko bets (hot
man cannot cat a quail a day for thirt
consecutivo days. Tho silly exploit w
believe lias been performed, though most c
thc so who have attempted it havo fuilce'
but (ho testimony of all who hnvo tried i
is thnt in a fow days this dolioato ond ap
parcntly wholesome fond becomes loathsom
beyond enduranoe. Thc foolish tncti wh
moko fho experiment aro little aware tba
in their folly they becomo tho indorscrs c
tho Mosaic record. Tho American quail
ur purtridgo ng it culled, is porhaps note
tho MUID species as that of thc Oricnti
countries, but it is doubtless of tho som
genus; certainly it has tho same mystcriou
kind of flesh, nppotizing at first, and for u
reason (hat WO COU ascertain, nausea t ? n
afterwards. Ik-foro tho quail soason wu
I over, and "while tho flesh was yet betwee
their teeth, Ibo wrath of tho Lord wu

All these phenomena wcro sont by tho
providence of God to teach his pooplo ocr-'
tain lcs8ou8, and if the faots wero for thom
thc rooord ls for us. Whatever they should
have loomed, we should (cuni.
Undoubtedly, thc first und wost important
lesson to learn, is that wc should ir?st
trust in Providence For tho salvation of
our souls wo must trust-trust in Christ;
for our well being in this lifo we should
trust, not directly in Christ but in Provi
dence. True, thc blessings of providence
aro tho purchase of tho atonement, no less
than tho blessings of grace; but thc for
mer wc enjoy in common with all mankind
while tho latter are only for thc saints.
Thut there is a distinction between them
appears in this: that many who uro com
placent in tho view of eternal lifo through
Jesus Christ, nevertheless havo misgivings
os to tho care of their II?*iiven!y Puther
over them in this present lifo. Their trust
passes over thc present und reaches to tho
future; but trust should begin now and
include within its embroco, tho things of
this world us well as those of tho world to
come. Tho Lord will provide. Bo not
distressed ubout tho morrow. Loam les
sons of diligonoo from God's book of
prover! s and soy Jehovah Jireh!
Another lesson lo bc learned is that of
contentment. Tho Israelites had bread,
tho Psalmist oulls it .'angers food." (Ps.
TS:25.) lt ia described us having been
very pleasant to tho tasto; and up it was
prepared by A'mighty God for u special
purpose wo may bc euro that it contained
in itself all thc clements necessary to sup?
port lifo nnd health. But thc people wore
not sathlied, and to show them their folly
tho Lord let them have their own way. If
wo can inprove our condition hy the use of
proper means it is right lo do so, hut inor
dinate desire is wrong. Let ns "bc content
with such things as wo have.*' Heb. 10:5.
If God were to gratify all our greed we
might miserably die. lt is well not to ask
too often, nor too persistently, for quails.
lt is liule moro than repetition to say
that God hears murmurings as well ns
prove?a, and that ho sometimes answers tho
one as certainly us thc other. When re
pining at our lot in life, und disposed to
lind fault with Providence, let us remember
that though our feelings bo unexpressed
and kept to ourselves, God sec." tho dis
satisfied heart throb and may send its
penalty iii thc gratification of its desire.
Gu tho other hand cheerful acquiescence
ronola on the soul, thus hy natural law in
vigorating for its burden and is moreover
pleasing to God and will bc suro to ho re
warded with his blessing. Of tho Is
raelites on tl)is occasion, it is said that C id
"gave then) their request, but sent leanness
into their soul.'1 Ps. 10(3: 15. it is right
to pray that our desires bo not gratified
unless they bo suoll as God approves.
ls there anything to bc learned from thc
struugo and unaccountable peculiarity in
thc flesh of quails}' Why should it nt onco bo
KO desirable nnd so undesirable? Wc know
that it is suitable for food by our own ex
perience, and also by tho fact that God gave
it to his people; we know in tho same way
(bat it cannot bc long continued. It may
bo that Cod has given it to us ns u luxury,
affording occasional variety in our food,
tempting to tllOSO who from physical causes
arc fastidious nnd containing perhaps some
principio not found in ordinary diet and
which may bc, ns it were medicinal, as well
as appetizing und nutritious, lt is no re
ply to this to say that thc sumo quality may
bo found in tho flesh of other wild fowl;
for if this bo so, it shows only thut a
greater variety of dainties has been pio
vided for varying (estes. Is this too small
u thing for divino consideration? Why
then has God given us suoh u variety of
vegetables nnd fruits, CHCII in ?ls SOason?
And why such a variety of flowers to grati
fy tho eye? It is j ont ns impossible for
anything to bo too small for God's ulton
tiou as it is that anything should bc too
It is well to associate outward objects
with the providences of God connected with
them, und with tho lessons which God hus
taught by them, livery quail is n preacher
a winged messenger from heaven, that may
well remind us of the experiences of tho
wilderness und of our own distrust of God,
and of our murmurings, nnd that from
Moses until this day, nil things arc un

A Bashful Man,
Senator Sebastian, ol' Arkansoa, was n
nativo of lliokman county, Tenn. On ouo
ocoaiion a member of Congress wis lament
ing Iiis bashfulness aod awkwardness.
"Why," said tho Scnutor fiom ltaokcnsaok,
"You don't know whut bashfulueas is.
Let mo toll you a story, and when I get
through L will 8luud you (ho bob if you
don't agree that you never knew anything
about btinh ful ness and its baneful cll'octs.
1 was tho most bashful boy Wost of tho
Allophonic*. I would not look nt n girl
much less speak to u maiden; but for all L
fell desperately in love with a sweet, beau
tiful neighbor girl, lt was a desirable
match on both sided, und thc old folks saw
the drift, and fixed it up. I thought I
should die just thinking of it. 1 was a
guwky, awkward country lout about nine
teen years old. Sho was an intelligent, re
fined und fairly well educated girl in tho
country, and at a tinto wheu tho girls had
superior advantages, und therefore supe
rior in culturo to the boys. 1 fixed tho day
us fur as I could huvo put it oil". 1 lay
awake in a cold perspiration ns tho time
drew near, ?nd shivered with agony ns 1
thought of tho terrible oideal.
Thc dreadful day carno, 1 went through
with tho programme somehow in a dusted,
confused, mechanical sort of a way, like nu
automaton booby through a supper wlicro 1
oould cat nothing, nnd through auch games
as ''possum pie,' 'Sister IMitobe,' and oil
that sqrt of thing. Tho guests one by one
departed, und my hair begun to stund on an
end. JJeyond tho uwful curtain of isis lay
tho terrible unknown. My blood grew cold
und boiled by turns. I was in n fever and
then in nu ague, palo nnd (lush by turns.
I felt like Hoeing to thc woods, spending
thc night in tho burn, leaving for tho Wost
never to return. I was deeply devoted to
SJIHO. I loved her harder than a mule
cu II Hielt; but that dreadful ordeal - I could
not, 1 dared not stand it. Fiuully tho lust
guest was gone, thc brido retired, tho
fntllily gone to bcd, und I was left alono
horror of horrors, alone with thc old man.
"John," enid ho, you eau take that cundle;
you wi'l lind your room just over this.
Hood night, John, nod muy tho Lord have
mercy un your soul," and with n mischiev
ous twinkle of his fine gray eye, tho old
mun left thc room. 1 mentally said,
"Amen" to his "Heaven help you," and,
when L heard him close n distant door, stag
gcred-fo niy feet and seized tho farthing
dip willi n nervous grasp. I stood for sonio
minutes contemplating my terrible fate,
und thc inevitable and speedy doom about
to overwhelm nc. I. knew that it oould not
bc avoided, and yet I hesitated to meet my
fate like a mun. 1 stood so long that three
love letters had grown on thc wick of thc
tallow dip, and a winding sheet wis deco
rating tho side of tho brass candlestick.
A happy thought struck mc, I hastily
climbed thc stair, marked tho position of
tho I imiing mid thc door of tho bridal
chamber, I would havo died beforo I
would have disrobed in that holy chamber
whore awaited mc a trembling nnd bcautL
lui girl, n blushing maiden, "clothed upon"
with her own beauty and modesty, and ber
snowy robe do nuit. I would multo thc
usual preparations without, blow out thc
light, open tho door und friendly night
would shield my shrinking modesty untl
bashfulness and grateful darkness nt least
mitigate thc horror of tho situation. It
was st'on done. Preparations for retiring
were few anil ?imple in their characters in
Hickman, altogether consisting in disrob
ing, and owing to tho scarcity of clothing
in those doy? mun wus somewhere near the
Adatiiio state "when bc WIS picparcd lo woo
sweet sleep. Thc dreadful hour had come,
1 waa ready. I blow out thc light, grasped
thc door knob with a deadly grip and a
nervous clutch; one moment and it would
ho over. Ono moment and it wasn't over
hy a blamed sight. I loaped within, and
tlictc around u glowing hickory lire, with
candles brightly burning on thc mantel and
bureau, was tho blushing bride surrounded
by tho six lovely bridesmaids.

where it is moulded into stones which

WASHINGTON, September 7.-Dr. Dardb
an Monday reccivod tho report of tho ml
arosoopioul oxpcrtV, Drs. Arnold, Slmk?poro
and MoOonool, ooatuiuiog' tho result of
their investigation into tho condition ot
Uuiteau's brain. After coroful conaidora
lion tho report WOB indorsed by Dr. Lamo'
nnd forwarded to Philadelphia,. where it
will bc published iu a medical journal.
Thu report is couched in language oven
more technion! than tho report of tho sdr
gioal autopsy, ond will necessarily bo almost
unintelligible to tho avcrugo reader. Dr.
Lamb declined to express any opiniod
which ho may hold os a result of tho ezam**
illation, Raying that from Iiis position and
connection with thc case it might bo givoa
greater promiucoco than it deserved. Ho
would say, however, that tho position taken
by Dr. Qoddiri that Ouitcnu WJS insane/
would bo materially suppoitod by ibis last
report. Thc investigation had been made
auder peculiarly favorable circumstances;
md thc result would form a complete rc joni
>!' ?inmenso value to brain students. The
investigation, indeed, said Dr. Limb, had
been so complete and thorough that special
lists would have great difficulty in finding
eases which, might properly servo as a basis'
of comparison, lo conclusion, ho said ho
did not believo tho report would chango
opinions ns to (luitenu's sanity to any
^rcat extent, but tho medical fraternity
genera I ly must draw their own conclusions
iud this was the court of last resort. Tho
report will he published in thc Philadelphia!
Medical News co Saturday. In reference
to (ho report tho Medical News will say
editorially: Thoro is iu tho microscopio
revelations no reason for changing tho'
opinion which wo originally expressed,
iliut Guitcau-nu abnormal character-I
ustly suffered tho penalty of tho law foi
die high crime ho hud committed.
