CHRIST, MY GLORY.
Jer. 9:23, 24.
BY MRS. IIRLEM E. BROWN.
I glory not in jewels
And glittering array,
Ta form and face of beauty,
Sure doomed to swift decay,
In fame or human favor,
Or pride of mortal birth;
I glory in my 8aviour:
No tongue can tell bts worth.
glory not in friendship,
For earthly love grows cold,
In broad domains or bouses,
Or treasures manifold,
In genius or in learning,
In science or in art;
I glory in my Saviour,
And in his loving heart.
I would not ask for kingdoms.
For royal robe and crown, "
For subjects or for armies, '
QWith splendor and renown. ;
I glory not i a grandeur, .
In flourish and display;
I glory in my Saviour,
My Refuge and my Stay. ,
Oh, naught am I, ray Saviour;
Thou, thou art all in all;
The chief among ten thousand.
At tby dear feet I fall:
1 yield np all beside thee, "
I gaze upon tby face,
I glory in thy beauty; ' ' . k 'i '
Thy all majestic grace, i " i
In Christ, in Christ I glory, ........
In Christ the crucified;
I'll put the world beneath me
And sing of naught beside.
O'er waves of tribulation,
Through fiercest fire and flame,
I'll walk with Christ, my Saviour,
And glory in bis name, J j j
The Little Door-Keeper.

"Lets's play clap-out," criedJulie ;
"No'i" chorused several
"I will count tip "and see who,'
said Bell Green, with authority.
Bell was one of the older girls from
the back seat, and no one ventured
to dispute her. So she began the
Iitte-ditty ; at the word out her finger
pointed to June, so her chance was
jjone the very first thing.- .
"I don't care!" said Julie, angri
ly flinging herself out of the line,
'I proposed the game, and it's not
fair to count up. You are the mean
est girls I ever saw, so there !"' and
she walked but of the yard, shutting
the gate after her very hard.
Straight to Aunt Amy she went with
"I wish my dear little Julie could
be door-keeper all the day long."
said auntie, gently
"There, I knew you would think
they were hateful to me," cried Ju
lie; then catching sight of the ex
nresslon of Aunt Amy's face, she
added in a different tone, "Oh dear,
I know there's a verse coming. I
never did see anybody so full of the
Bible as you are, auntie."
"I was just thinking of David's
prayer," she said. "Set a watch, O
Lord, before my mouth : keep the
door of my lips."
"There she comes," said Myra
Wells, a few minutes later ; and she
called out, "Here, Julie, you may
have my place ; I don't care."
"No, thank you," she answered,
pleasantly, "I have found some other
floor-keeping to do."
And so through that day, and
many days to come, whenever she
was angry, she kept the doer of her
lips8hut so carefully that the wick
ed, irapatleut words could not get
out, and all the girls wondered to
see her grown so gentle and lovable.
And best of all, I think the gates,
too have lifted up their heads, and
the Kiflg of Glory has come in.
jjiiue sins are reany as siniui as
as a a
larger. They are "foxes," and they
-spoil me vines." une tlaw ruins
us in the eye of God. We recognize
and act upon this in earthly things,
sad and strange that we should fail to
l so in higher. Who does not see
that the tiniest flaw or fracture in a
diamond injures the whole gem, be it
n very Kohinoor; that the smallest
streak or stain sets aside the marble
block of Carrara, that is like the
driven 9now; that the slightest spot
or sieck dims to rejection the whole
polished lens that the most insignifi
cant leak is perilous to the ship !
In these cases it will not do to say
that the fault is very small.
Once a famous ruby was offered to
the British government. The report
of the crown jeweler was that it was
the finest that he had ever seen or
heard of, but that one of its facets
one ofthe "little" cuttings of the
.face was slightly' fractured. '.The1
result was that thfn almost? invisible
flaw reduced Its Value by thousands
of pounds, and It was rejected ' from
the regalia of England. ( Again,
when Canova was about to -com
mence his great statue of Napoleon,
his keen eye detected a tiny, red line
running through the upper portion
of the splendid block, that at Im
mense cost had , been fetched from
Paris, and he refused to , lay a chisel
on it. Once more, in the story of the
early struggles of the elder Herschel,
while he was working out the prob
lem of gigantic specula 'or telescope
lenses, you will find that he made
scores upon scores ere he got one to
satisfy him. A Bcratch like the slen
derest spider line sufficed to spoil
what had cost him ' long weeks of
toil and anxiety. Again, in the
"leak" of a ship, the measure of the
ship to resist the shock of wave or
strain of wind, is not its, strongest,
but its weakest part. h Iti-
' His First Letter.
i A writer in the. Christian Union
gives an amusing account of the first
letter ever written to his wife by a
certain eld gentleman. The couple
had never been seperated in all the
years, of their married life until
"Pa," at the age of seventy, conclu
ded to visit some relatives in Boston.
When he was preparing to start on
his memorable trip his wife, who
was to remain at home, said ;
f Pa, you never writ me a letter in
your life, an' I do hope when you git
bafely there you'll write t me a line
and let me know how you bore the
journey. I'll buy a sheet of paper
' ? .t a
ana pui in a waier. bo , you , won't
have no trouble about that." m I -
' Pa was absent a week, and, faith
ful to his promise, :he sent a letter.
It read thus :
j "Respected Lady jf j r
got here safe, and I hope you are
the arae. I shall be glad to git
home, for the pride, of the airth that
I see here is l enough '.. to ruin the
nation. Gad ! the women folks are
too lazy to set up in their carriages
They loll back and look as If they
was goin' to sleep, and I don't s'pose
one of 'em could milk a cow or feed a
pig. .. . y ..;
"JNephew Abijah has a proper
daily of horses, an' I have rid all
over Boston. There wa'n't no need
o' puttin' them boughten button on
my coat, for no body noticed 'era.' I
am Your. Respected IIvsraxd."
Bought With His Blood.
Some Africans are terribly blood
thirsty and cruel. A chief one day
ordered a slave to be killed for a very
small offense. An Englishman over
heard the order and at once went and
offered him many costly things to
spare the poor man's life. But the
chief turned to him and said: "I do
not want ivory, or slaves, or gold; '.
can go against yonder tribe and capt
ure their 6tores and villages. I want
no favors from the white man. Al
I want is blood." ; .
Then he ordered one of his men to
pull his bowstring and discharge an
arrow at the heart of the poor slave
The Englishman instinctively threw
himself in front and held up his arm
ana the next moment the arrow was
quivering in the white man's flesh
The blacks were astonished. Then
as the Englishman pulled the arrow
from his arm, he said to the chief:
"Here is blood, 1 give my blood
for this poor slave, and I claim his
The chief had never seen such love
before, and he was completely over
come by it. He gave the slave to
the white man saying:
"Yes, white man, you have bought
him with your blood, and he shall be
In a moment the poor slave threw
himself at the feet of his deliv
erer, and with tears flowing down
his face, exclaimed:, , ,
"O, white man, you have bought
me with your Mood; I will be you
The Englishman could never make
him take his freedom. Wherever he
went, the rescued man was beside
him, and no drudgery was too hard
no task so hopeless' for
slave to do for his deliverer.

his service !

is motives and his aims, his purpos

we discover. So the more we know
ourselves, the more we find that is
nexplicable and contradictory, Let
any one who thinks he has fathomed
his own nature and sounded its
depths watch Ills' ,'daily' life clokely,
and he will find a thousand fractures
the smooth and comprehensive
ideal he has imagined to himself.
Ie will be surprised at a heroism of
which he had not thought himself
capable, or he will be shocked at
some meanness which he had sup
posed impossible; here he will discern
marksof an ability of which he had
not dreamed, a'nl there he will pause
n wonder to see how far short he
falls in his own intentions.
Dr. T. L. Cuyler.
Sympathy can not bring back the
departed treasure, it can not "lift the
napkin" from the face of the dead ;
but It does help wonderfully to lift a
great load of sorrow.
Never have I felt before, as now,
what an unpardonable mistake we
ministers make when we fail to ex
tend the utmost personal sympathy
to the afflicted.
Nor must we attempt to apply cer
tain bandages of consolation too soon.
Thebleeeding heart , must bleed
awhile ; the weeping eyes must weep,
or the heart will burst. Jesus him
self sought the relief of tears. None
dared to say to hlra at Bethany,
' Why weepest thou ? " .
That pastor fails utterly who at
tempts to comfort a bereaved heart
by an endeavor or to stop the natural
flow of grief with even a Bible prom
ise. Nature must have her way be
fore divine grace can do its perfect
work. Perhaps this simple sugges
tion learned from ' personal experi
encemay be helpful to my brother
pastors in dealing with that largest
family in their parishes, . he family
or the sorrowing.
What to Read.
It is wise at night to read but for
a few minutes some books which
will compose and soothe the mind
which will bring us face to face with
the true facts of life, death, and eter
nlty ; which will make us remember
that man doth notlive by bread
alone ; which will give us, before we
sleep, a few thoughts worthy of a
Christian man with an immortal
soul in him.
And, thank God, no one need go
far to find such books. I do not
mean merely religious books, excel
lent as they are in these days : I
mean any books which help to make
us bester, and wiser, and soberer and
more charitable persons ; any book
which will teach us to despise what
is vulgar and mean, foul and cruel,
and to love what is noble and high-
minded pure and just.
Inonrown English language we
may read by hundreds books which
tell of ali virtue and of all praise ; the
stories of gxd and brave men and
women ; of gallant and heroic ac
tions ; of deeds which we ourselves
should be proud of doing ; of persons
whom we feel to be better, wiser and
nobler than we are ourselves.
The story is an old one, but good,
for all that. Said the camel: "It is
cold out here; may I put my head
within your door?" The merchant
could not find it in his heart to re
fuse. Before long the camel's neck,
as well as his head, was within the
little room; then his shoulders; then
his whole body. So the merchant
was crowded out entirely, for, the
room was not bigr enough for both of
them. We sometimes think it no
great harm if we permit the begin
ning ofa bad habit to enter our bo
som. If it would stop there, it
might not do bo much evil. Hut no
one knows where a bad habit will
stop. It is quite as likely as not to
crowd out every good thing. So
look out for its beginning!
