The Conscience and Future Judgment.
t oof oloris with my conscience,
In a place- where time had ceased,
And wo talked of our formor living
In the land whore.the yoars increased,
And I felt I should havo to answer
Tho question it put to me,
And to tb/jo the answer and question
Throughout an eternity.
The ghosts of forgotten actions
Cama floating before my sight.
And'things that I thought wero dead
Wero alive with a terrible might,
And the vision of all my post life
Was an awful thing to taco?
Along with 'my obnscieuco sitting
In (hat solemnly silent place.
And I thought of a far-way warning.
Of a Gorrovr that was to be mine,
In a land that then was tho future.
But how is the present time.
And I thought of my formor thinking
Of tho judgment day to be,
But sitting alone with my conscience
Bocmod judgment enough for me;
And I wondered if there was a future
To this land beyond tho grave;
But no one gave me on answer.
And no one came to save.
Then I felt that tho future was present,
And the present would never go do,
Por it was but tho thought of my past
Grown into eternity.
Thon I Woke from my timely dreaming,
. And the vision passed away,
And I know the far-away warning,
Was a warning of yesterday?
And I pray that 'I may not forget it
In this land before tho grave,
That I may not cry in the future.
And no one come to save.
And so I have learnt a lesson
Which I ought' to have known before,
And whioh, though I learnt it dreaming,
I hope to forget no more;
So I sit alone with my conscience.
In tho place whoro tho years increase,
And I try to remember the future
In tho land where Time will cease,
And I know of the future judgment,
How dreadful soe'er it be,
That to sit alone with my conscience
Will be judgment enough for me.
Kibhi??o the Book.?-Gentlemen
of tho legal profession ore aware
that there nave been, as there are
now, many methods of administer?
ing an oath.
The old patriarchal mode in tho
days of Abraham was by putting
the band under the thigh?Genesis,
24, 2-9: "Abraham said unto bis
servant put, t pray thee, thy band
under my thigh, and I will make
tboe swear by the Lord, the God
of heaven, and tfto God of earth."
* * ' * "And the servant put
bis band under the tbigb of Abra?
ham, his master, and sware to him
concerning this matter."
In the Apocalypse, again, we
find an angel with one foot on the
sea and another on the land, "rais?
ing his hand and swearing by Him
Oiat licclh forever and ever.*'
And kissing is an act of worship,
and was so bold among the ancient
beatben, who kissed their images
?1 Kings: 18, 19. It was rejected
by some of the churches of Europe
both before the reformation and
In England it still obtains among
members of the national church,
and is enjoined in administering
tho oath in low courts, whilst
Quaker^ are entirely exempted
from any form of oath. The
Quakers' solemn asseveration is
taken in an English low court, and
be is not required to "kiss the
book" The Puritans of England
were, and are ' still, exempt from
kissing'.tjbo book, holding that the
raising of the baud is much more
solemn, i I
So the lav/ in Scotland, both in
nivil and ecclesiastical courts, is to
swear witb the ' unlifted band.
Whilst in Eugland, Ireland and
Scotland, the custom is to swear a
Roman Catholic by making him
kiss the Missal* and not the Bible,
it seems, then, that a variety of
modes are adopted by different
countries and different churches.
The conscience of the witness and
Whatsoever form is presumed to
be most binding is accorded to
him. In the absence of any positive
mandate of inspiration, ? churches
and civil communities are left to
their choico an between kissing the
book and raising the hand.
" An old Weptb^r-woru trapper!
was recently seen eauntbring along
tbo main street of one our "West?
ern villages. Pausing in front of a
little meeting house for a raomont,
lie went in nnd took his sent among
tho congregation. The preacher
was discoursing on tho text of "the
sheep and the wolves," und hud evi?
dently been drawing a contrast be?
tween the two subjects. Says be:
"Wo who assemble here from/ week
to week, and do our duty, and per?
form our part, are the sheop; now
who uro the wolves?" A pnusc, and
our friend the trapper rose to bis
feet: "Wn'al, stranger, rather tban
see tbo play stopped, I will bo the
wolves!' The preacher was van?

An editor relates how ft colored
barber niado a dead-bead of him.
He offered lam the usual dime for
shaving, when the fellow drew him?
self up with considerable pompos?
ity and said, "I understand that
you is an editor." Well, what
of it?" said wo. "Wo never charge
editors nuftin." "But, my worthy
fri?iid," wo continued,'"l?ero uro
a good many editors traveling
now-a-days, and such liberality on
your part would prove a ruinous
business." "O! never mind," re?
plied tbo barber, "we make it up
off tbo gcininen."
After the Franco-Gorman war,
the Grand Duko of Coburg-Gotha
said to Bismarck that the decora?
tion of tho Iron Cross had been
distributed too freely. "Well," said
the Prince, "It has been given, on
one hand, to bravo fellows who
earned it in battle, and, of course,
justly given; on tho other hand, it
has been given out of pure courtesy,
as to Your Highness and to me,
and wo had bettor not say too
much about it."
A conductor on tbo. Union Pa?
cific Railroad put a "dead-boat" oil
his train politely once, kicked him
off three times, then finding tho
impecunious in tbo car again, in?
quired: "Wbero in blazes are you
going, any how?" "Well," said the
not-to-be-got-rid-of, "I'm going to
Chicago, if my pants bold out, but
if I'm going to bo kicked every live
minutes, I don't believe I'll make
tho trip!" The conductor lot bint
ride a Uttle way.
"Five cents faro for that child,
madam," said a street car conduct?
or, as bo opened the door and put
bis hoad into the car. "Very well,"
she replied, feeling in hor pocket;
"this is an orphan child and I'm its
guardian. I must have ft roceipt
for all moneys paid out, and as
soon as you write me one, I'll drop
a nickel in the box." He shut the
door and? leaned oven the brake
like a man in deep thought.
There is a woman in Paris who
goes about the streets watching
for a man to tumble down with
apoplexy. Then she rushes for?
ward in groat distress und goes
with him and the police to tho sta?
tion, takes care of bini, &c, and
steps out of sight beforo ho reco?
vers bis senses, when it is general?
ly found that bis watch and Porte?
monnaie have disappeared.
A Yankee editor tosses up the
sponge with the remark, that "It
don't pay to run a papor in a town
where business men read almanacs,
and pick their teeth with the tail
of a herring."
For a tippler to dream that lie
has been barrelled up is a good
