Lot the World Know You're a Man.
Come ! off with your coat and roll up your sleeves'
Young man, I'm speaking to you ; .
Oh ! why do you stand in this busy land,
And say "lucre's nothing to do?"
Just pull off your coat and roll up your sleeves,
And do whatever you can ;
You'll find it will pay in the end, I say,
To let the world know you're a man. j
Come! off with your coat and roll up your sleeves!
Then yon'll find plenty to do ;
Don't sit down and growl, but get up and howl,
And "paddle your own canoe."
If you're in hard luck,then show you've got pluck
Never sit down and complain ;
But get up and dust, aud scour off the rust,
And then go at it again.
Cornel off with your coat and roll up your sleeves I
Young man, why do you complain,
And stand in the streetjust like a dead beat,
If "nothing was made in vain?"
Now, oft with your coat and roll up your sleeves 1
And do the best that you can ;
In the end 't will pay, as you'll find some day,
To let the world know you're a man.
Come! oft' with your coat and roll up your slecvesl
Take hold and work like a man ;
Don't be a drone in this world alone
You'll find it's not the best plan;
But off with your coat and roll up your slecvesl
And be the best in the van ;
Now, mark what I say, in the end 'twill pay,
To let the world know you're a man.
Mr. Vick: I want to know something about
Pineapples. Do they have any flowers, and if so,
where does the flower grow ? Will.
The Pineapple is not a single fruit, like the
Peach or Plum, but a mass of fruits, every section
or diamond formed division being an independent
fruit, bearing its own flower and seed. To make
the matter plain, we had our artist draw a speci
men, and directed him to make the points we de
signed to illustrate, prominent, He has, however,
rather overdone the matter. The flowers are not as '
large, comparatively, as shown in the engraving.
Vick's Illustrated Magazine.
The use of flowers and green boughs
for decorating purposes is almost in
stinctive in human nature, and there
is scarcely any nation, either civilized
or savage in which it is not more os
less common. The Jews ornamented
their synagogues), in their manner
during the "feast of Tabernacles in tbe
month of Tishri, which is our October, 9
and during this celebration (heir peo- B
pie dwelt in tents or arbors made of B
the leafy branches of certain treen; the B
ancient DruidB and other Celtic na- B
lions hung up the mistletoe mid green B
branches over their doors to propiti- B
ate the woodland spirits, The custom B
also prevailed at Rome, particularly B
during the Saturnalia when the lto- fl
mans ornamented their temples and B
dwellings with green boughs. Be- B
cause the custom camo from the Pa- B
gans several ecclesiastical councils B
prohibited the members of the church B
from imitating them in the decoration B
of their houses, but in process of time B
this Pagan custom became part of the B
ceremonies of the church itself, and B
evergreens are wreathed into the cross
and made to symbolize the sacrifice
and ; the sufferings of our Saviour H
wherever a Christian people live.

the region where they livens it could be done at IH

This Bending abroad for work when you can f
have it done in your own town is both foolish and ,r
wrong. It is your duty, as a good citizen j to en- ,
courage your home institutions. They need all the '
work they can get, and by patronizing them you
keep money at home, assist the worthy, and In al- 'H
most every case have just as good work done as
could have been done for you abroad. Giving 'H
your patronage to home institutions is the only
way to make your town prosper. You must, if 'H
you desire to do your whole duty, support your .tjH
own schools, your own mechanics, and your own
press. Where there is a general disposition to "M
send abroad for any article that could be manu
factured as well at your own door, there will ai
ways be a little or no husiness done. All kinds
of labor will be extremely dull. Wherever me-
chanics arc the best employed, prosperity is seen ;
the social virtues predominate, and aindly broth
crly feeling is experienced, which is the source of
Whatever you have to be done, look around and
see if your own mechanics cannot do it. If you
have a house to build or a shoe to tap, a house to
paint, a saddle to be made, tinware to mend, or a
pack of cards, billheads, letterheads, circulars, or
anything of that kind to print, or anything else to
be douc, just look among your home folks before
J'our send abroad, and if you find there are none
n yor town capable of doing 'the job, it will then 'H
be time enough to look elsewhere. Wc know of .'H
instances where men have refused to purchase
work made by their neighbors, and have sent to a
distant city for the articles they needed, and paid
a third more for them, when, behold, they were
the very articles manufactured, and sent away to
sell, by the same neighbors from whom they had
refused to purchase.
Let the motto of all be : "I will encourage our
home institutions." In-turn you will be encour- iH
aged also. A natural feeling of good will and 'jH
kindness will spring up in our midst, and prosper
ity will be observable in every street and in every ' i

are right it lessens your triumph; if
you are wrong, it adds to the shame of 'M
