A Good Mau Slandered.
Rev. II. F. Williams, of Missouri,
the leader of Mr. Moody's choir, was
charged a few days ago with a former
marriage and abandonment of a woman
who was present at their meetings and
claimed to recognize his voice. The
investigation shows that if Mr. Wil-
' liams is the recreant husband he must
have married the woman plaintiff when
he was oulv four vears old. This, with
other proofs, clearly vindicate Mr. Wil
' ' -
liams from the slander sought to be
fastened upon him.
The minority of Mr. W. reminds us
of a certain modern reformer of lie-
brew chronology who objects seriously
to the longevity of the antediluvian pa
triarchs mentioned in the Bible. Ac
cording to his scale of interpretation
Matheusaleh was only 80 years old,
and Adam about 78. But this would
make the ago of Moses only four months

Israel from Egypt 1 Surely he was a

Home, where never a sorrow

Where the smile of Uod is on them,
Through all the summer years :
I know, vet bit arms are empty.

And the mother heart within me
Is almost starved for Heaven. '
Sometimes, in the dusk of evening, - ;

And the children are all about me,
A vision from the skies ;
The babes whose dimpled fingers
Lost the way to my breast
And the beautiful oues, the angels,
Passed to the world of the blest.
A breath, and the vision is lifted . .

And again we two arc together,
All alone in the night ;

And I answer, with eyes uplifted,
