The Lost Dinner.
In the town of Newcastle, in
England, there was a man who
rent by the name of Patient Joe.
He worked' in a coal mine He
was called Patient Joe because.
lYrieTc'ame to him, he would
say. "It's all for the best ; those
who love God shall, find that -all!
things"jvork together for good."
If tliinffs went well with him.
Joe would praise God : and if
things went ill with him he
irould praise God still, and say,
'"God knows test what is for my
good. t We jnust not judge of
things by this life alone; there
is'alifa 'to come after this; and
things that may not seem good
for us here may , be5 good for us
there." ' J
In the coal pit where Joe work
ed some of tha men .would, jeer
ariaMaugli at him when he said,
"It's all for the, best." . , There
was a man by thename of Tim,
who would miss no chance to
l.nin-ri at .Tn
One day, as Tim and Joe were
getting ready to go down into
the deep pit, Joe, who brought
his dinner of' bacon.- and, bread
with him, laid it on the ground
for .a moment Before he could
fake it up, a hungry dog seized
it and ran oil.
Ha,haI". cried Tim, "that's

"Well, I do sav vesj' said Joe ;

If I get it back, it will be all for
the best : and if I don't get it
Ihesame. "God Ts"so'greaftEat
he can rule the smallest thing as
well as the largest."
So Joe ran after the dog, ai
Tim, -with .a latjgh.and oath, went
down into the coal-pit.. Joe run
the dog. At 'ast Joe gave up
the chase, and came back to the
mine, thinking to himself tha

But he found them all pale
with alarm and awe. "What a

It is probably for this reason that

Some paper has stated that
