The old ballad says, "Spring
would be but gloomy weather if
we had nothing else but spring.''
Yet what is brighter than the
sunshine of an ever -cheerful
spirit ? Who more blest than the
giver of pleasant words and
kindlv, looks? Not the insipid
inanities of an existence without
an object of a nature too indo
lent to get ruffled. Not this, but
the influence of a strong individ
uality diffusing itself among
others, and gilding the passing
hour with a genial glow. A
mother of many daughters was
wont to say, "Girls, cultivate
cheerfulness; it will stand you
in hand through all your life." I
A wise father s injunction was,
"Kind words cost nothing; do
not grudge them, especially to
vour social inferiors." Again,
" Take the world as you find it ;
you cannot mould people to suit
your ideas. Give them credit
for meaning as well as you do."
An unerring test of a voting
girl's choice of books is to read
nothing that she would blush to
read aloud to a gentleman friend.
The hero of "The Initials" is
made to give this advice to Hil
degarde. Just so in our social
commingling it were well if we
did not ever say of another what
we would leave unsaid were that
other within earshot. Be cheer
ful and you will never feel cross.
Before the mighty power of a
happy, buoyant spirit fly the le
gions of envy, hatred and malice
and all uncharitableness. The
shining sun of the heavens dis
pels the miasma of the marshy
vallics. The sun of cheerfulness
scatters the mists that lie deep
down in the dnrlroiipd rnl rf
discontent and unrest. '
There is a Christian household
in this city who give a tenth of
all they make to the Lord. The
father, the sons and daughters
work, and it is said of them that
this rule holds good even down
to the little one who has but ten
cents, yet gives a penny of it
away. Shall this righteous man
ever be forsaken, or his seed beg

McClure have sent in their sub

The Best Time
To work, while you can; to
sow wild oats, never; to sing,
when you feel like it; to laugh,
is when you can afford to. The
best time to think is before you
act; to take care of your health
is before you lose it; to make a
good resolution is when you in
tend to keep it; to judge another
is when you are in the same
predicament. The best time to
stop your meauhess is before you
