The Old Scotch Woman's Faith.
By the side of a rippling brook in
one of thu secluded glens of Scotland,
there stands a low mud-thatched cot
tage, with its mat honeysuckled
porch facing the South. Beneath
this humble roof on a snow-white
bed, lay, not long ago, old Nancy,
the Scotch woman, patiently and
cheerfully awaiting the moment
whfn her happy spirit would take its j couldn't
among them in a quiet way and
hear him say: "Boys, 1 want to sell
my kit. Here's two brushes, a hull
box of blacking, a good, stout box,
and the count goes for two shillings.
"Goin' away, Tim?" inquired one.
"Not' zackly boys, but I want a
quater the awfullest kind just now."
"Goin on skursion?" asked anoth
Not to-day, but I must have a
quater," he answered.
One of the lads passed over the
change and took the kit,- and Tim
walked straight to the counting
room of a daily paper, put down the
money ,aud, said : "I guess .1 kin
write if you give me a , pencil."
With slow-moving Angers he
wrote a death notice. It went into
the paper almost as he wrote it,
but you might not have seen it.
He wrote :
"Died Litul Ted of Scarlet fever;
gone up to Heviu, left one brother."
Was it your brother?" asked the

Wonders of the Sea
The Sea is disclosing to investi
gations many wonders. Scientific
research is bringing to light results
which repay the toil, hardship and
means employed in searching and
exploring the mighty deep. The
first volume of "The Report on the
Scientific Results" of the English
Challmgcrh voyage proved interesting
reading, but some fads contained in
the second volume just issued are
truly wonderful. For instancp,
"there are fish living 2,C00 fathoms
down; some-blind, others almost
eyeless, which are socoinpressed from
the weight of the water that when
brought to the surface their bodies
expand. Three miles down there is
no light and no change of tempera
ture. Being no light, there is no
vegetable growth and the fishes
feed on each other at least, so many
of them as have teeth probably do so.
Those without teeth, no doubt, feed
on animalculic. From Professor
Tait's experiments it seems that at
a depth of six miles the sea is com
pressed about C20 feet. May this
compression long continue; for
should it cease something like 2,000,
000 square miles would be inundated."

One day that young minister put
to the happy saint the followingsturt
ling question : "Now, Nanny," said
he, "after all your prayer, and watch

your soul to be eternally lost?" Pi
ous Nancy raised herself on her el
bow, and turned to him a wistful
look, laid her rigth hand on the
"precious Bible," which lay open be
fore her. and quietly replied, "Ae
dearie me is that a' the leiurtli ye hue
got yet, man?" and then continued
her eyes sparkling with almost heav

I hung my s ul upon his 'exceeding

Thus spoke the old Scotch pilgrim.
These were among the last words
that fell from her dying lips, and
make a heart which would not res
pond if the right chords were touched?

Billy was a peddler's horse. K very
day he drew a large wagon along the
country roads. This large wagon
was load ed with tin and brooms. It
was a heavy load to draw. He
stopped at all the houses, so that his
master could sell the brooms and
tins. One day, after he had travel
ed a long time, Billy stopped. There
was no house in sight. He was tired
"Go along" said his master.
"No!" said Billy.
This is the way Billy said "No"
He set his fore feet out. He laid
back his ears and shook his head.
His master got out of the wagon
and patted him.
Billy didn't stir.
He moved the harness here and
there, pattei him more.

When Jay Gould was a struggling
young surveyor, with hardly one
cent to rub against another, he
stamped his initials and the date on
a copper cent and put it in circula

some pennies in change on the
third street ferry boat, and on look
ing over them he found the coin he
had stamped was not among them.

Uncle (to disreputable nephew)
You have got down to be no better
than a common begger. Hardly a day
passes that you don't come to me
and borrow money. Thank heaven
you are my only nephew, and I wish
I didn't have you.
-Nephew lama better man, un

you dead, I wish I had live or six
more such uncles.
It's uncharitable, unchristian, and
inhuman, to pass a peremptory sen
