THli AGED CHRISTIAN'S JOT.
I could call upon tho aged incu in tills
house U give te&tiniiony. Tliore are aed
nitai hero who triwl tuu world, and t hey
trid religion, and they are willing to tes
tify on tair side. It w;w not long ago that
nu aged man arose in a pniyinR circle and
bald: "IJrftthten, I lo't my son ju.it as ho
graduated from college, aud it broke my
heart; btit 1 urn glad now lio Is gone, llo
U nl. rr.t. .'.scnticd from nil sorrow and
from all trouble. And then, in 1837, 1 lost
all my property, and you fee I am Kcttlni!
old, and it ts rather hard upon me: but I
. am sure God will not let mo mi (Tor. JIu
I has not taken care of mo for fpvrnty-llvo
years now to let me dropoutot his hands."
i I went into the room of an aged twin
his ojesight nearly gone, his hearing near
ly i;nne and what do yott stippoi a lie was
t 'liking about' Tho goodness of God and
tho joys of rellL'lou. Hu saidi "1 Mould
like to go over and join m wife on the
oilier side of tho llood, and I am waiting
until the Lord calh me. 1 am happy now.
1 shall be Imppy there." Whnt in it that
gave that aged man so much satisfaction
and peace? Physical exuberance? No, it
luia all gone. Sunshine? Ho cannot see it.
The voices of friends? Ho cannot hear ,
them. It h the grace of God, that is
brighter than sunshine and that is sweeter '
thin music. If a harpist, t.ikeM a harp and
finds that all tho strings are broken but
one string lie does not, try to play upon it.
Yet. here I will show you an agrd man the
strings of whose joy are all broken save
one, and yet he thrums it with such .satis
faction, such melodv that, th" angels of
(iod stop the swift i-tnikeol tli"lr wing.s
and Iiout aliont the i,hi"e until ihe liiu-ie
ceases. Oh, li ligi.m'.s "wajs are ways of
pleasMitness, and all her paths are pi-iee."

perpetually, an 1 sometimes their heart

trunk if It has been hidden away. If you
have not the courage to 1-iy It on the shelf
or table, lake that lliblc 'hat was given to
you by some loved one, t-iko it out of the
trunk and lay it, down on the bottom of
the chair, t hen kneel clown lieside it, and
