C hriKt the Saviour came to rarlli,
H-e CHino of mock mid lowly birth.
K eincmlicr lie c:inic to inalio us free,
I n time and in eternity.
S aviour He is, He Haves from sin.
T-o him let fervent prayer hi gin;
M slier, monarch, king of kings,
A-ngels nncl men His praises sing,
S aiuts on earth Ilia praise proclaim
A-nd saints in heaven adore His name.
Now the old yenr is almost gone,
D-Rj-H are fast Hying one by one.
N-ov on a narrow neck of land,
E-'en tween two points of time we stand;
W-e see that time doth swiftly lly,
Y-oung men and old, and all must die,
E-very sinner must meet his doom,
A-nd tivery one lie in the tomb,
U-enicmber therefore, O young man;
Accept the Saviour's gracious plan,
Repent, believe and seek his face,
And he will surely give yon grace.
Then come to Him with all your heart,
He will His righteousness impart;
Oh, come to Him without delay,
He'll gladly take your sins away;
He'll inako you happy in his love,
And take yon home to heaven above
Where you will have inexhaustable treasures
And pleasures that never can fade away.

The Farmer's Setter Dog.
The subject, jist now, of my llowin' rhynw
Is a setter that set two-thirds of the tiluo,
And oat a quarter, and barked a third,
With the awfullest bark you ever beard.
In Memory's ward of white washed balls,
Thut motionless dog hangs on the wall,
With white on his tail, and white on bis toes.
And white on hiB ears, and white on his cose.
With the meekest expression out of his eyes,
And tho terriblest appetite for pies;
And over him hangs, forever more,
The simple epitaph "gone before."
Not that I think he'll share with me
The joys or griefs of eternity,
But wherever that dog gois, live or dead,
There's this much certain bo's goin' ahead.
no never was where ho wanted to be
Unless ho was trottin' along with me,
And ho was always huutin' around
For somethiu' or other he never found.
Ho couldn't ketch g:imo for ho went too slow
If he had 'a caught it, he'd let it go.
He couldn't find birds, nor drive home cows,
For the simple reason he didn't know how.
That setter dog was with mo
First time I popped the question;
I've laughed so lunch about it
That it's injured my digestion.
Although ho wasn't all to blame.
When I was comin' back,
I could have kicked that setter dog
From here to Ballyhaclt.
I had been callin' on a girl
For many a weary day
Her father had a big, nice farm
About a mile away.
He was a rich old customer
He had a lot o' money,
And Bhe was sweet as sugar
And a good deal worse than honey.
You know that curious feelin'
That a feller always has,
When he's took about a barrel
Of that cray laughin'-gas-Well
that's the way that I felt,
My heart was all so meller,
Au' I thought tho host way out of it
Was jist to up and tell her.
When ail your soul makes music,
Like the cooin' of a dove,
You needn't try to smother
That pesky buggar, love.
You can't keep in your feolin's,
No more'n you can the hives
I'd rathor kill a kitten,
With forty thousand Hvcb.
I hadn't felt so narvous
Since that long-remembered day,
When the lightnin' struck the Btraw-Btack,
And the bay horse run away.
And so, one winter evenin',
I set about to see
What Fato and Mary Hawkins,
WaB layiu' up for me.
The Bky was dull and cloudy,
The snow, it was a spittiu'
It jist looked like the very night
To git a whoppin' mitten.
But I got up enough of hope
To banish all my fears,
And pulled my hat down over
The edges of my ears.
I needn't tell you how I sweat,
For all the kind o' night,
Nor how I nearly busted,
When a fence rail broke, for spite.
I got there, and before I rapped
I went and took a look,
And Baw that blessed angel
Through tho window, with a book.
I took my coat off somewhere
I don't remember now
I have a way o' slingin' things,
Jist kind o' every how.
We discussed tho new Bchool-teacher,
With his diamond collar button,
And Banks's new spring-wagon,
And tho latest apple-cutlin',
The projects fur sit ihh-ridiu',
Tom Ilemple's bride, and so on,
Till we'd u-ieil up all the topics
That jit then was a-goin'.
It seemed to me that that 'ar gal
W as actio' awful Mean,
And worse than any weather
That I mostly ever seen.
But I was there on business,
And I wouldn't be outdone
By any yaller-beaded gal,
That ever wore a tongue.
So I begun a talkin,'
And a-wadin' in the niiro,
Atid she kep' still and list'nin',
And gazin' in the fire.
I worried through with punkin-crops,
And politics and sicb,
And them oncomniou streaks o' luck
That makes some people rich;
And then 1 lired another load
Of wise pbikmophy,
About why people should enjoy
I'.ach other's company.
Atid jist here I was bothered,
For 1 could plainly feel
A snnicthiu' gently gnaw in'
At my boot, above the heel.
But, however, I continued
In a solemn eaructd tone,
That a burden is much lighter
For two than one alone.
And if ono ox took a notion
To use and wear a yoke,
It would be most awful likely
He'd git bis fool neck broke.
But Mary looked so blasted cold,
I thought she'd inebbe free3,
And so I neaied the subjuct
By put ty quick degrees.
That gnawin' thing was gitten' worse,
And I imagined witches,
And as I did it give a pull
That like to tore my britches.
And when I stopped my talkin',
And looked for what was there,
That setter dog was settin'
Jist underneath my chair.
I saw that Mary's count'nance
WaB covered with a grin,
And all the dimples showin'
About her cheeks and chin.
That dog's untimely foolin'
Had spoiled my wiiole effect,
And I co-ild a jerked his head off
Or leastways sprained his ueck.
And when I reached the subject,
'Twas too abrupt, you know,
And in my ears is ringin'
That everlastin' "No.M
But that was only one case
Of a million score and six;
He got in more predicaments
Than any lunatic.
Everytime I whipped him
Ho stayed warm for a week,
And I would 'a whipped him harder,
But he looked so dratted meek.
I tried to make him stay at home,
But nary bit of that.
His tail begun a-waggin',
When I put on my hat.
We went to church one Sunday.
In the latter part of May,
The sun was shiuin' mighty bright,
And all the world w as gay.
The calves and colts was danoin',
In awkward jigs and reels,
A-rnnnin' and a-jumpin',
And a-kickin' up their heels.
The setter looked as ehierful
As any tree in bloom,
Though he seemed a little hampered
'Cause there wasn't 'nongh o' room.
And every bird was chatterin',
Like be had a talo to tell,
And tho fields and woods was Btnellin'
Like Eden used to Bmell.
The church doors all was open,
As wide as they would go,
And the tin roof wbb a glitteriu'
Up on the cupelo.
The church looked jist as usual
The seats was jist as stiff
But every feller looked like he
Had got a Christmas gift.
It made them feel so lively
To fill up on that air,
And see the parson's shining pate
Untarnished by a hair.
The parson preached hii sermon
The best that he could do
And everything went easy,
Till he got nearly through.
I'd iieard a kind o' growlin'
In the corner onot or twict,
And tliat ikig was a-flghtM
M'ith Deacon Jones's Jiest.
The parson dropped his glasses,
And looked a little skeered,
And Deacon Tones kep' fidgetin,'
And jerkin at his beard;
And Wider Brown is narrous
She squalled right out in meetin'
And I got kind o' squeamish,
And felt my heart a-beatin';
And then I felt like laughin',
But I tried to keep from sinnin',
And some young fellers by the door
WTaa simperin' and grinnin.'
The fieut got scared 'bout half to death
And jumped clear out the winder,
And broke the eash and glass and stuff
And smashed it all to flinders.
The parson couldn't find his specs,
And couldn't read his sermon,
And what was goin' to be done
I couldn't quite determine.
The sexton he looked stupid,
But then a worthy sister
Struck up a hymn that fit the case
As good as any blister.
That good old hymn I've always knowed
'Ten thousand foes arise,
The hosts of sin are pressin' hard
To draw thee from the skies.'
I thought that sixteen thousand,
Or even forty-nine,
Couldn't make as big a racket
In quite as short a time.
That setter kep' a-growlin',
And rummagin' about,
And for fear he'd tear the house down
I got up and took him out.
He got himself in trouble
Wherover there was any,
And where he found there wasn't none
He always made a plenty.
His queer career was ended
By a singular mishap,
For one night someone hung him
With a noose and hitchiu'-strap.
I felt most awful sorry,
Though I knowed it was in vain,
And I tried to think that his loss
Would be my eternal gain.
A feller gits attached to stock,
Or anything he finds,
He'll take to Spanish-needles
In a mighty little time.
And when I went a-walkiu',
I always would believe,
That I could bear his restless feet
A-patterin' in the leaves.
And I could almost see him,
In that stiff legged trot,
And the more I thought about it
The sorrier I got.
My conscience was effected
Way down below the roots,
And I felt my nerves a-goin'
In the bottoms of my boots.
And then to e p the climax
And you needn't think I'm lyin
I fumbled for my han'kerchief,
And busted out a-erytn'.

Extracts from the Private Correspondence
of Miss Mamie Loyd.
(We have Been kindly furnished with
extrnels from private letters to President
Loyd Bui wife, of the Highland Female
College, rooeutly received from their
daughter, Miss Mamie Loyd, who is now

Kovemiieb 4th. This is a beautiful
morning, quite warm in the sunshine, but
chilly elsewhere, My hands are so cold I
can scarcely write. I am sitting by the
open front window with my feot in the
sunshine. The thermometer hanging near
me iu the Bhado says 65 degrees; by hold
ing it in the sunshine a few minutes it runs
up to 82 degrees: I think it generally
stands between 150 aud 70 degrees. I sup
pose it must be much colder at homo.
Bhnll be anxious to know tho result of this
day's voting iu the States; I received the
paper you sent after the other election.

The wedding will take place in the parlor
at Gantti, and ltev. C. Druos Will porform
the ceremony. I am afraid we will have
scene when 'Lola' leaves our baby Lillie, as
she has taken charge of her for six months.
The greater number of our ems are
orphans, whose friends are not strict Cath

Only a few pay auything, for the most of
them we furnish everything. They fare
very well, much better than the most of
them would if their friends had them.
They have for Bnpper and breakfast, coffee,
bread and Frijoles (beaus). For dinner,
meat and vegetables one day, and fruit and
vegetables the next day. They do not
have butter, Irish potatoes or oatmeal,
these articles are too expensive butter
cents per pound, oatmeal aud sprits each
30 cents, while ham is one dollar a pound,
a liimry in which none of us indulge !
Some of our girls are quite dark, with
coarse straight black hair. They seem
like my eyes because they are blue !
The women go bareheaded or wear
shawl or mantle over their heads. They
will go out in the broiling hot sun with
covering for the head except a parasol, and
of these we have great variety in color,
size and shape. There is a cathedral next
door to the orphanage, and you will

is not proper for ladies to go out alone.
Girls never ro out on errands, you must

Mr. Wm. Thomas, of Newton, la., says :
My wife has been seriously affected with a
cough for twenty-five years, and this spring
more severely than ever before. She had used
many remedies without relief, and being
urged to try Dr. King's New Discovery, did bo,

has absolutely cured her. She has not had
so good health for thirty years."
