Do not be ashamed of doing the

usefulness come rarely, but thr
smaller things are always at hand,

useful men and women and of such,

THE WOMEN TO MARRY.

happy because she can't help it
whose smile even the coldest sprinkle
of misfortune cannot dampen.
Men make a terrible mistake when
they marry for beauty, or for tal
ents, or for style. The sweetest
wives are those who possess the
magic secret of being contented un
der any circumstances. Rich or
poor, high or low, ittraakes no dif
ference ; the bright little fountain of
joy bubblet up just as musically n

cabin? The fire on its humble
hearth becomes brighter than the

shine of a happy face falling on the

We often find farmers who lose no
chance of securing machinery for
saving labor on the farm, but who
don't think anything about the
machines that save labor in the
house. That is out of their province,
and they don't seem to care enough
about it to give the matter any at

is calculated to discourage the wo

family with the flowers of promise
and enshrine the memory of lovid

reunion in heaven which looms up
from a dying hour. It shall give to
the infant soul its "perfect flower

ness of a generous love and a con
scious blessedness, making it "lust
rous in the livery of divine knowl-

of home separation and bereave

thee, mourning parents, "Is it well
with thee?" you can answer wjth
joy, "It is welll"
