"NO PLACE LIKE HOME."
"I hate this little lor-r.ift'd house,
This hill-bound villi? home;
I Iour to Hee the glorious world,
And 'raid new scenes to roftui!
"The Rim just rides uere, and sets,
The days are all the same;
There's nothing grand to do or see
And everything is tame."
Years passed. The boy of restless heart
Had wandered far and wide,
Had tossed upon the ocean wave,
And climbed the Jungfrau'sside;
llad journeyed from the Golden Gate
To storied Eastern lands,
And pitched his tents where A frie's streams,
"Roll down their golden sands:"
Had glided through the Grand Canal
'Neath soft Venetian skies,
Ann in strange northern lands had seen
The sun at midnight rise.
Through many cities grand and great
In wonder he had trod,
And ou historic battle-fields,
His feet had pressed the sod.
He roamed through galleries of art,
And palaces of kings,
And filled his memory with store
Of rare and wondrous things:
And then he came to that small vale,
Content no more to roam,
And said; "There's not in all the, world,
So sweet a place as Home!"
A Word to Young Christians.
BY MAY M. ANDERSON.
The young disciple of Christ is often
discouraged by the many crosses
which loom up before him, and
which he knows must be borne if he
is true to his Muster.
After the first glow of consecrating
love, which at first leaped so high,
has seemed to grow pale,these crosses
rise before him with grim and dis
heartening distinctness. lie shrinks
back, und feels that ho is too weak to
bear them. So he is! But in Christ
is fullness of strength, and all that
strength is pledged for each soul that
turns to Him for help.
A child, walking by his father's
side, reaches a slippery and danger
ous footpath over a turbulent stream.
lie stops dismayed, afraid to take
one forward step. One glance, one
word of distress, and all that loving
father's strength, if needed, is exerted
to carry him safely past the danger.
With what trust the boy yields him
self to the strong and guiding hand
Alone, he would have fallen. Lean
ing upon his father's strength, confid
ing in his tender love, he crosses
without a fear, and even smiles as
his foot presses the slippery path.
With just such loving trust we
look to Christ for help, knowing that
He even walks close beside His be
lieving disciple, only waiting for a
look, a cry for help, to make His
presence, His strength, known.
As one advances in the Christian
life, true it is that crosses are changed
to joys, thorns to roses. Divine love
so fills and satisfies the heat, that
what at first were trials have become
pleasures. Is not this true? Ten
thousand, thousand Christian hearts
will answer "yes," and will testify
that the present peace and joy so far
outweigh the crosses, as not to be
mentioned in comparison.
"To be filled with the fullness of
Uod." That is what is promised to
those who love Him. Filled with
the joy of His presence, His love, "as
the flower-cup is brimmed with
Cannot we trust Him, then, to lead
us wheresoever He will, through
darkness, through trials, through
death, if need be that we may be
brought into the fullness of perfect
day? His arm is around us, His love
before us, why need we shrink? That
soul that trusts him utterly, will be
kept in perfect peace, no matter how
wildly the storms may beat, nis
feet will press the mountain heights
of faith, and hid in the hollow of His
.Father's hand, no wave can touch
him, no rough wind disturb his calm,
When once the soul is filled with
(Jod's love, how close to Heaven this
world will be! How sorrow and
grief will pale before the glory and
nearness of His presence, and the ex
ulting heart will cry aloud: "Let the
God of my salvation be exalted."
The Meaning of Life,
We are sent into this world to learn
the moaning of life. The present
Majic ot existence is not, ana never
ha- boon, satisfying to a single liU'
man soul. Its Lest conditions fail to
answer t ho deeper needs of man,
Something, we feel, lies beneath and
beyond this mystery of birth and toil
and decay and death; something
which we are to lay hold of, however
imperfectly, as the secret of human
life. The meaning of life is profound,
is mysterious, transcending. The
longer we live, the more inexpressi
ble, and yet the more real, it grows
to be. The natural tendency of
youth Is to lodge the meaning of life
in material things. Before the soul
has encountered very much of the
mystery of life of the unrealness of
what seem at first to be the most real
things it finds an almost adequate
satisfaction in temporal experiences;
and the danger is that the young man
or the young woman will turn from
the spiritual significance of life, as
something too unreal and visionary,
to the tangible and material. But
as time flows on, the real meaning of
life comes out its spiritual significance
unfolds; and, unless a false tendency
has been established, the soul wil1
turn from material to spiritual things
for its full satisfaction. Happy is
that one to whom the meaning of
life is revealed in youth, whose whole
course is Godward and heavenward,
sustained by that faith which is "the
substance of things unseen."
Have you ever considered the
Christian duty of being pleasant?
Whether you feel happy or worried,
whether things are goinsr well or ill
with you, you have no right, by your
words or even by a doleful counte
nance, to cast gloom on others. As a
Christian you have or ought to have
light In your heart, and you are
commanded to let it shine. You at e
not only to rejoice, but to impart joy,
evermore. Have you ever tried,
through the duties and trials ol one
day, "to be a blessing," making your
very presence a light and joy to all
you meet? Try it.
Simple Reliance on God's Word.
"Nothing tends so much to produce
a manly independence, confidence,
and genuine liberty of thought and
feeling as a simple reliance on God's
word and an unconditional submis
sion to it. Liet them destroy my
works,' said Luther; 'I desire nothing
better; for all I wanted was to lead
Christians to the Bible, that they
might afterward throw away my
writing. If we had but a right un
standing of the Holy Scriptures,
what need would there be of my
Tennyson says: "Wild- natures
need wise curbs." Restraint is all
important. All need it. There is in
all of us a strong tendency to sin and
folly. We run to excess. Checks
hence are necessary. Itestraining
grace is as needful as quickening or
sanctifying grace. Providences which
we call afflicted, but which are God's
agents to make us humble, to wean
our affections from earth, to prevent
us from suffering spiritual loss and
to keep U3 in the right path, areas re
quisite as the favorable dispensation
which we prize so highly.
An honest Swede tells this story in
plain but unmistakable language for
the benefit of the public. "One of
my children took a severe cld and
got the croup. I gave her a teaspoon
ful of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
and in five minutes later I gave her
one more. By this time she had to
cough up the gathering in her throat.
Then she went to sleep and slept good
for fifteen minutes. Then she got up
and vomited ; then she went back to
bed and slept good tor the remainder
of the night. She got the croup the
second night and I gave her the same
remedy with the same good results.
I write this because I thought there
might be some one in the same need
and not know the true merits of this
wonerful medicine." Ciiarlks A.

The Future of Cattle.
Colnian'8 Itural World.
Live stock journals of the far
west claim that the numbers of cattle
on the ranges have been fulling off so
;rgely in tho last few years that the
aggregate totals now are several mil-
ion head less than a few years ago.
This is perhaps correct. The natural
result of this must be (indeed it can
not be otherwise) that the surplus of
catttle which has been weighing on
the trade so heavily for a number of
years will, one of these days dis-.
appear. This is certainly as inevita
ble as any other positive thing which
is bound to occur. When that time
comes cattle prices will, of course,
substantially advance. Conditions
are such that the ranges are not like-
y to be again filled up as they have
been with live stock, and this ought
to insure a prevention of the recur
rence of any such wonderful multi
plication in numbers as has taken
place in the last ten years.
This, from the National Stockman,
indicates the inevitable trend of pop
ular thought in regard to the cattle
business, and it is of special signifi
cance to the farmer, because if the
range is at an end the farm is the
only source of supply.

M Cholera Cure!
Thousands of dollars worth ol
chickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to thtm
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.
