WHEN LABOR'S DONE.
BY KItANK PEMMON.
How sweet to rest when labor's done,
As slowly sinks the setting sun,
And evening joys come welcome on,
When labor's done.
How sweet to earn the right to rest,
To know our labor will be blest,
That joy will come at our behest,
When labor's done.
When we have thought, and planned, and
And all our worldly battles fought,
We'll rest, as worthy laborer's ought,
When labor's done.
And when we've fought the bitter fight,
)Ve'll see at hand the welcome sight,
On heavenly shores the Beacon Light,
When labor's done.
It is becoming more and more ap
parent that some judicious restraint
must be placed upon immigration
to the United Stales. We have long
suffered, and are increasing suffering,
from the bad character of many who
yearly swell our population. There
are many from abroad whom we
eladly welcome to our shores. We
have need of them, and they of us,
but there are others whom we do not
want, and who are no blessing to us,
but rather a curse. All are of the
opinion that the begging and de
pendent classes should be excluded.
We have no room for the blind, the
halt, the lame and pauper. But there
are others who are crowding various
occupations so that it is impossible
for men in these pursuits to find em
ployment. In some industries the
supply of laborers so far exceeds
the demand that many connected
with them are thrown idle during a
large part of the year. Those who
are qualified to know, tell us that
while the uesirabte immigrants are
greatly diminishing, there is a grow
ing increase in the number of the un
desirable ones. In March there land
ed at New York,f 5,949 more imml
grants than during the March pre
viously. In this increase there were
933 more Hungarians, 4,567 more
Italians, and 1,830 more Russians. In
contrast there was a marked diminu
tion in the immigrants from Scot
land, Ireland, Germany, France,
lfollaiad and Wales. There is almost
every inducement now to invite to
us the inferior orders of Europe. The
ocean passage has been made easier;
the dangers have been lessened; tho
expense has been greatly reduced;
and glowing accounts are sent abroad
of the easy mode of living here. Thus
the dependent classes are lured hith
er in increasing number, and our re
sources are yearly taxed to maintain
those whom Europe is only too glad
to be relieved ol ana to lasten upon
us. There has been much talk and
agitation upon the subject of putting
a stop to the business, but Congress
moves slowly. The public would
like to see some decided and honest
action taken. The Congressman who
moves in the matter promptly and
succeeds in getting the right kind of
a bill passed, will not only increase
his popularity, but be accounted a
wise legislator and a national bene
lactor. A wnoiesonie pressure upon
our representatives at Washington to
give the country the benefit of their
combined wisdom in the passage of a
discriminating and effective immi
gration law might prove stimulating
and helpful. Presbyterian.
Don't get in the habit of it. It's
the easiest thing to do, and the hard'
est thing to stop in the wide, wid
world. It ruins your temper and
spoils the shape of your mouth. Try
and see the good rather than the dis
agreeable, in the people and your sur
roundings. You would not go into
a friend's house and find iault with
what she does, and with what she
has, and her way 'of living; what
right have you, then, to find fault
with those who are more than friends
to you the people of your own bl6od'
If there is a grace that we are all
stingy wun, it is mat oi giving
praise, and yet it is one with which
we ought to be lavish. Why should
you tell your friend her bonnet is be
coming, when you have never said
this to your sister? Why should you
go out to tea and praise your neigh
bor's muffins, when you have forgot'
ten to tell mother how good hers
were? Why should you announce how
much Mr. Wilson overthe way knows,
when father is a great deal better
informed man, and it has never cnter
ed your little head to whisper quietly
to him how much you appreciate his
wisdom. You keep your ability to
discover faults for the home, while
the eye that should look for virtues,
is closed tightly until you go out.
Don't wait until some one has gone
from you, to tell of their virtues.
Don't wait until sister Is far away in
nnother land, to tell her how helpful,
how pretty, or how courteous she is;
and don't wait until tho weary hands
are crossed and the long sleen has
come, before you make mother know
what a beautiful blue are her eyes,
how tender is her heart, and how
dearly you love her. Tell it all
now, when the walk through life is
hard, and the sunshine of praise is
vearncd for to i brighten it, and to
warm and encourage the pilgrim by
the wayside. Ladies Home Journal.
Welcome to Church.
It is not unfrequentiy said that our
churches are cold and indifferent, and
that outsiders coming in do not re
ceive a hearty welcome. Such Is not
our observation or experience. There
is no gathering anywhere in which
such hearty and sincere greeting and
gladness meet the visitor as usually in
our churches. Their doors are widely
open and their seats are free to all
comers, even where the pew-rent
system prevails. Indeed, the general
complaint is not that straneers in
trude, but that they do not avail
themselves of the warmth of the wel
come awaiting their coming. All
classes are cordially invited and
cheerfully greeted. The rich or poor,
high or low, is warmly met and
given tho best the church can offer.
Ushers meet him at the door and
seat him in a pleasant place. From
the neighboring pew couie the prof-
ferred hymn-book. The minister
prays for the stranger within the
gates. All are glad to see a neighbor
at their service. There is nothing to
compare with this welcome, in store,
office, railway car, place of amuse
meut, or other public gathering,
Even in the large city churches mem
bers are ever waiting to guide the
strange worshipper to a good seat. If
one is not made welcome, it is his
own fault. As one has said:
"A church warm with the love and
sympathy of Jesus Christ is the
weetest, most helpful place this
side of heaven. More and more let
us each strive to make his own place
of worship such a church, and may
God's good Spirit come to our help."
Jiememoer this let us all remem
ber it: No crowned queen, no general
leading great armies, could do
more than be faithful, and every lit
tie child even can do so much as that
iou are not asKCU to tight any ene
mies except those that are right be
fore you. If you resist and conquer
them, then some other battles may
be given you to wage by and by ; but
if you do not fight the good fight as it
is, then you ought not to be given
any battle of more importance. Christ
wants the children to come into His
kingdom, and lie gives the children
a part in the warfare. Be brave; do
the right thing; obey Him; resist
temptation; don't give up; be wide
awake; and, above all, trust in
Christ, love Him, be loyal to Him,
and follow where He leads. So not
only in childhood, but down to old
age, strive to fight the good fight of
faith, and to prove yourself a true
soldier of the Cross. Rev. P. T. Far-
Truths to be Remembered.
Frugality may be termed the daugh
ter of prudence, the sister of temper
ance and the parent of liberty. He
that is extravagant will quickly be
came poor, and poverty will enforce
dependence and corruption.
The management of a household is
as much a matter of business as the
management of a shop or a counting'
house. It requires method, accuracy,
organization, industry, economy,
discipline, tact, knowledge and capac
ity for adapting means to ends.
There is no slight danger from gen
eral ignorance ; and the only chok'e
which Providence has rraciously
left to a vicious govornment is either
to fall by the people, if they are suf
fered to become enlightened, or with
them, if they are kept enslaved and
Activity without overwork, health
ful living, moderation, self-control,
the due exercise of all the faculties,
the cultivation of the reason, the
judgment and the will, the nurture of
all kindly feelings and the practice of
doing good all things, in fact,
which tend to build up a noble man
hood also prepare the way to a long
life and a happy and blessed old age.
A child's training must be begun
without delay, while it Is yet an in
fant in arms. As soon as it knows
that crying will not conquer, that
persistence In naughtiness will not be
encouraged by its weak-minded nurse
or mother it learns the wisdom of
submission. A victory onco gained
thus over a rebellious child, however
much It may cost the tender-hearted
mother at the time, is well won.
Next time tho fight will not last so
long, and gradually the little child
will learn the necessity of obedience.
A Great Man.
Our Christian Homes.
Rev. Dr. Broadus recently related
the following incident during a Sab
bath-school talk in Detroit :
An old man used to sweep, the
street-crossings for gratuitiou3 pennies
near the House of Parliament for
many years. One day he was absent.
Upon inquiry he was found by a mis
sionary ill in a little attic chamber,
barely furnished with cot and stool.
"You are lonely here," the mission
ary said. "Has any one called upon
you ? "
"Oh, yes," he replied, "several
have called Mr. Gladstone
He called and read to me."
"Mr. Gladstone called ? And what
did he read ? "
"He sat on that stool there and
read the Bible to me. "
What a beautiful position! The
greatest statesman in the world, sit
ting on a stool, in an attic, reading
the Word of God to a street sweeper !
Great men lose none of their great
ness by kindness to God's poor.
Dr. 0. W. Holmes on Heart-Love.
"I never saw a garment too fine for
a man or maid ; there never was a
chair too good for a cobbler or a coop'
er or a king to sit in ; never a house
too fine to shelter the human head
These elements about us the glori
ous sun, the imperial moon are not
loo good for the human race. Ele
gance fits man ; but do we not value
these tools a little more than they are
worth, and sometimes mortgage
house for the mahogany we bring
into it ? I would rather eat my din
ner off the head of the barrel, or dress
after the fashion of John the Baptist
in the wilderness, or sit on a block all
my life than consume all on myself
before I got a home, and take so
much pains with the outside when
tho inside was as hollow as an empty
nut. Beauty is a great thing : but
beauty of garment, house and furni
ture are tawdry ornaments compared
with domestic love. All the elegance
in the world will not make a home
and I would give more for a spoonfu
of real heart-love than for whole
ship-loads of furniture and all the
gorgcousness all the upolsters in the
wolrd can gather. "
The Scientific American gives this
recipe which the world ought to
know: At the first indication of diph
therm in tne throat of a child, makf
the room close, then take a tin cup
and pour into it a quantity of tar and
turpentine, equal parts. Then hold
the cup over a fire, so as to fill the
room with fumes. The little patient
on inhaling the fumes will cough up
and spit out all the membranous mat
ter, and the diphtheria will pass out.
Then fumes of the tar and turpentine
loosen the matter in the throat and
thus afford the relief that has baffled
the skill of physicians.
The First Symptoms of Death.
Tired feeling, dull headache, pains
in various parts of the body, sinking
at the pit of the stomach, loss of ap
petite, feverishness, pimples or sores,
are all positive evidence of poisoned
blood. No matter how it became
poisoned it must be purified to avoid
doth. Dr.' Acker's English Blood
Elixir has never failed to remove

An exchange gives the following
useful hints: "If the chimney catches
f!re run to the salt box and empty it
out upon the flames; they will be re
duced as if by magic, and further
steps can be taken to subdue the out
break If soot falls upon the carpet
or rug do not attempt to sweep until
it has been covered thickly with dry
salt; it can then be swept up properly
and not a stain or smear will be left.
If anything happens to catch lire,
either whilst cooking or otherwise,
throw salt upon it at once to prevent
any disagreeable smell."

Doth the M.tsou & Hamlin Organs and

chief excellence in any musical instrument,
quality of tone. Other things, though
important, are much less so than this. An

Thousands of dollars worth of
chickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
that positively destroys the Microbes
has been made. Half of the young
chickens are killed by Microbes
before they are fryers. A 50-cent
bottle is enough for 100 chickens.
It is guaranteed. If, after using
two-thirds of a bottle you are not
satisfied with it as a cure for Chol-
. era, return it to the druggist from
whom you purchased it, and he will
refund your money.
