Soul of mine,
'oullst tliou choose for life a motto half
Let this be thy guard and guide,
Through the future reaching wide;
Whether good or ill betide,
From the mire
Where the masses blindly grovel, rise high
From the slavish love of gold,
From the justice, bought aud iold,
From the narrow, rules of love,
Art thou vtxed
l?y the rasping world around thee, and per
plexed, - - - ,
By the sin and sorrow rife,
By the falsehood and the sfrife?
To a larger, grander life.
If thou findeit
the friend thy heart had counted
Have betrayed thee, why shouldst thou
Wear for this a frowning brow?
Leave their falsehood far behind;
Let each earn
Lift tlrve upward to a higher, purer air,
Then let Fortune do her worst,
Whether fute lias blessed or cursed,
( Little matter, if thou first ' . ;
Rise higher. v
And at last '
When thy sorrows aud temptations all are
And the grand death-angel brings
Summons from the King of kings,'
Thou shalt still, on angel wings, J
j . Rise higher. 1 . 1

"A Heart of Compassion."
Pit. ALEXANDER MACLAKKX.
Those who are in Christ, and are
thus regenerated In him, are of the
chosen lace, are consecrated as be'
longing especially to God, and re
ceive the warm beams of the special
paternal love with which he. re
gards the men who are in some
measure conformed to bis likeness
iind modeled after his will. That
relation to God should draw after it a
life congruous with itself a life of
active goodness and brotherly gentle
ness. The outcome of it should be
not mere glad emotion, nor a hug
ging of one's sel f in one's happiness,
but practical enorts to turn to men a
face lit by the same dispositions
with which God has looked on us, or,
as the parallel passage In Ephehians
has it : "lie imitators of God, as be
loved children." That Is a wide,
fruitful principle the relation to
men will follow the relation to God.
As we think Uou has been to us, so
let us try to be to others. The poor
est little fishing coble is the best
guided by celestial observations, and
dead reckoning without sun or stars
is but second best. Independent
morality cut loose from religion
will be feeble morality. On the
other hand, religion which does not
issue in morality is a ghost without
substance. Religion is the soul of
morality. Morality is the body of
religion, more than ceremonial wor
ship is. The virtues which all men
know are the fitting garments of the
elect of God.
"A heart of compassion." So the
Uevised Version renders the words
inven literally In the Authorized as
UK TT VlO lit U11L1V7 Oil VAlvr)01UU
which that very strange thing
called conventional propriety regards
as coarse, simply because Jews chose
one part of the body and we another
as the supposed seat of the emotions.
Hither phrase expresses substantially
the Apostle's meaning.
js it not beautuul that tne series
should begin with pity ? It is the
most often . needed, for the sea of
sorrow stretches so widely that noth
ing less than a universal compassion
can arch it over as with the blue of
in some respect deserving uf and
needing sympathy, if his whole heart
and history conld be laid bare. Such
compassion is difficult to achieve, for
the healing streams of our pity are
dammed back by many obstructions
of inattention and occupation, dried
up by the fierce heat of selfishness
Custom, with its deadening influence,
comes in to make us feel least the
sorrows which are most common in
the society around us. As a.iuiiu
might live so long in an asylum that
lunacy would seem to him almost
the normal condition, so the most
widely diffused griefs are those least
observed and least compassionated ;
and good, tendor-hearted men and
women walk the street' of our j
;rreat cities and f .-ijrhts children
Showing up for the gallows and the
devil, gin shops nt every corner---
whlch might ranke angels weep, and
suppose, them to be as Inseparable
from our "civilization" as the noise
of wheels from a carriage or bilge-
water from a ship. Therefore ve
have to make conscious efforts to
"put on" that sympathetic disposi
tion, and to fight against the faults
which hinder Its free play. No other
help will be of much use to the re
ceiver, nor of any to the giver. Ken
eflts bestowed on the needy and sor-
rowful, t bestowed without .sympa-
thy will hurt like a blow. Much is
said about Ingratitude, but very oft
en it Is but Instinctive recoil of the
heart from the unkind dor of a
kindness. Aid flung to a man as a
bone is to a dog, usually gets as much
gratitude as the sympathy which it
expreases deservts. But if we really
make another's sorrows ours, that
teaches us tact and gentleness, and
makes our. clumsy hands light
deft to bind up sore hearts, v '
Above all tbing9, the practical dis
cipline which cultivates pity will be
ware of letting It bo excited, and
then not allowing the emotion to act.
To stimulate feeling and do nothing
in consequence, is a road ' to destroy
the feeling. Pity is meant to be the
impulse toward help, and if it Is
checked and suffered to pass away
Idly it is weakened as certainly as a
plant is weakened by being close
nipped and hindered from , bringing
Its buds to flower and fruit.
The Left Hands.
"Hurrah, mother! I belong to a
Otis Adams came hopping Into his
mother's room first on one foot, then
on the other, banging the door, up
setting a chair and making as much
noU-e as a nine year-old boy could
"isn't it jolly mother a sure
enough secret society ?" r
"Do all the members make as
much noise as this one?" asked his
mother with a pleasant smile : "be
cause, if they do, I hope " the meet
ings will be held out In the field.
But what Is the secret, Otis ?"
"Oh, ho!" cried the little boy,
"that would be telnntr. ana we are
not to tell anybody."
"I don't think much of secrets."
said the lady, "that are not for moth
ers to know."
Otis looked rather sober. "Well,
mother," he said, "at the next meet
ing I'll move that all the mothers be
made honorary members and be told
the secrets. But I am to be on duty
to-night, and I can't tell you what I
am going to do."
His mother shook her head, and
Otis began to be dreadfully afraid he
would miss his appointment.
"Just try me this time, mother,"
he said earnestly. "It is something
I know yon would like me to do,
and Mr. Roas knows about it: In
deed, be gave us our society name
"I think I could trust my boy,"
she said fondly, looking into his clear,
truthful eyes, "even If Mr. Ross did
not know about it, but, as nine-year-
old judgments are not apt to be very
ripe, I am better satisfied that your
teacher should be in the secret.
What is the name of your society ?'
"The Left-Hands,' " he replied
proudly ; "but don't ask our motto,
for that would tell too much."
The next morning before school
time Otis was seen flying wildly
over the house. Where oh, where
is my satchel of books?" he cried.
"Mother, you must have put them
away, for I always come to your
room first and leave them there."
"But you did not have them with
you yesterday, Otis ; I observed that
your hands were empty when you
came tumbling intomy room, and
fully intended to ask where your
bag was, but the talk about your
secret society put it out of my head."
Then mother-like, she helped him to
hunt for his books ; but even with
her help the books were not found,
and Otis went off to school in great
During the uinrning Mrs. Adams
put on her bonnet and coat and went
out to see a sick neighbor, a poor wid
ow, whose sickness would have been
starvation to her little family except
for tho kind charity of thoe around
"Ah, Mrs Poole," she s tid, enter

laid in for your kitchen-stove."

"and 1 reckon yon are at the bottom
of it, nm'am."
"I? No, indeed. What makes
you think so?"
"Don't you know how I got that
"Not a word of it."
"Well, about dark, last night,
some boys came into 'my ' yard, as
mum and quiet, ma'am, as if they
had come to steal, and piled up
three barrow loads there whete you
see it. - As they kept quiet, we kept
quiet too, but the children made
sure they saw your Otis among
them." " . ii' 1 . : i t
"Very likely," said Otis' mother,
remembering "The Left Hands:"
but she said nothing to the boy un
til that evening, when Barry Mitten,
the blacksmith's son, brought Otis'
satchel to the door, with these words:
"iaa says ne'u na' went for your
uns' bout using his grindstone ef he
hadn't ha' see Mrs. Toole's woodpile.
This here,, bag was left on the
So "The Left Hands" first secret
was out, but that has not seemed to
discourage them at all, for every
week some good turn is being done
secretly to somebody ; and it is not
hard to guess that the motto of the
society Is, "Let not your left hand
know what your right hand doeth."
Enduring Affronts With Humility.
When God proposes to make us die
to oruselves he always touches that
which is the very easence and center
of our life. Thus doth he apportion
crosses. Let yourself be humbled ;
silence and peace under humllitatlon
are a true benefit to the soul. One is
sometimes tempted to ialk humbly,
and it is easy to find a thousand fine
pretexts for so doing, but It Is yet
better to be humby silent. Talkative
humility is to be suspected : In talk
ing, self-love relieves itself not a lit
tie. Do not be angry about what
people say ; let them talk while you
try to do God's will. As to the will
of men, you could never come to an
end satlsfyiLg It, nor is it worth the
trouble. A little silence, peace, and
union with God ought to comfort you
for all that men may say unjustly.
Possess your soul In patience. Re
new yourself often in the presence of
God, so as to calm yourself, to
humbly adapt yourself to the little
ones. Nothing is really great
save lowlineas, charity, distrust of
self detachment from one's opinion
and will. All stiff, harsh goodness
is contrary to Jesus Christ.
Discord Changed To Harmony.
There is a fctory with which many
of the present generation have been
made familiar in our reading-books
which has an important application
to Church-life. The story is that a
German, with an ear sensitive to
music, one day entered a church,
and, being distressed by the discords
of the singing, put his fingers in his
ears ; but there penetrated through
them a clear, rich soprano singing in
such perfect tune that he was moved
to listen. The singer neither faltered
because of the jarring notes, nor in
creased the volume of her voice to
drown them She kept steadily on
till one after another came into
acewrd with her sweet tones,
till she brought the en
tire congregation into harmony. The
true servant of Christ, in a Church
whose members are disagreeing with
one another, does not drop into si
lence from disgust. If he is strong
and positive in his views, he is much
more tempted to sing too loud, or to
high, and crack his own voice. But
if he would win for his Master, he
must sing Jor his Master's ear till dis
cord becomes heavenly music. We
are divinely called to live and w'ork
with imperfect men and women.
Let us remember that they are dust
and so are we.

overcome by taking Hood's Sarsapa
