the LAW OF llECOMVESSE.
There is no wrong, by any one committed,
But will recoil;
Its sure return, with double ill repeated,
No skill can foil.
As on the earth the mists it yields to heave
Descend in rain,
So ou his head who e'er has evil given,
It falls again.
It is the law of life that retribution
Shall follow wrong;
It never fails, although the execution
May tarry long.
Then let us be, with unrelaxed endeavor,
Just, true, and right;
That the great law of recompense may ever
Our hearts delight.
A LOST ART.
Perhaps not the best title, but it has
this advantage, it is familiar. A lost
art lost to most ; but, happily, re
tained by a few. This it is the art
of Bible-reading and study. Of those
who read it at all, probably the large
majority read in a random way.
Now and then, if the sacred volume
is at hand, and nothing more interest
ing solicits attention, they will pick
it up, glance over it where chance
directs in a listless way, and then
lay it aside with scarce a thought of
what they have been doing, and with
no remembrance of what, in fact,
never had a lodgement in the memo
ry. Many of those who have a plan,
make it to include the daily reading
of very limited sections, with a view
to meditation upon them ; that is, in
many cases, as a justification for the
devotion of a slender portion of time
to the Holy Book. The purposed
meditation is forgotten ; the reading
is only a placebo, which quiets con
science, but does little good to mind
or heart. The majority either do not
read at all or do it with such infre
tjuency and inattention that, if re
quested to turn to a passage in Zecha-
riah, they would not know whether
to look in the Old Testament or the
New, if, indeed, they have taken in
the fact of thigeneral division of the
sacred Canon. It is embarrassing to
see such persons fumbling the leaves
and vainly hoping for some escape
from their confusion. Talk of reviv
als! Is any revival more needed
than one which will move our people
to search the scriptures? Can we
hope for stalwart, steadfast, intelli'
gent Christians, so long as men and
women take no note of the holy com
mandments delivered to them, or are
indifferent to the will of God in Christ
Jesus concerning them? Will the
Church not be poor and miserable
while it remains uninformed of the
wealth freely proffered in the gospel
ana or the exceeding great anu pre
cious promises given to it ?
These questions intimate the bene
fits of Bible study ; but the subject
deserves more full and explicit con
sideration. The careful student of
Cod's word will store his mind with
the greatest truths and soon find his
heart stirred and moved by the
weightiest motives. The ferment of
lofty thoughts and the impulse of
these divine motives will transform
the sordid life into a life glorified by
holy aspirations, worthy aims, and
noble endeavors. The constant, de
vout Bible student will acquire a (one
of thought and feeling which unhap
pily few, it is to bo feared, possess
A man who reads nothing but the
daily news will have only a secular
tone : the man or woman who reads

pnere wnicn only enervates, anu
those who read only profane litera
turc, though it may be of a character
well approved, will be out of sympa
thy with the spiritual, and disin
clined to the entertainment and con
sidcration of divine truth. Bible
study is very helpful to prayer. Af-
ter Qod has spoken to us through his
word we are more disposed to speak
to him in our closets. The word of
God suggests most important subjects
for prayer. Do you say, How is this
I feel that I need about every thing
es; out tnis general impression is

small benefits or none. But the Chris
tian who reads and ponders the bles-
eu Jsook receives suggestions, or
plainer direction, respecting his
wants; and then the specific an
richer blessings. And, further, such
an one rinds in the word the suitable
vehicle of expression. Do you say,
Iff know what I need I can tell it to
!o:l '.' Yes, if you knn But it hap-:
pens oftentimes that the impression
of need, while positive, is vague.
The BiKle reader finds his undefined
thmilit crystallized in some precept
r v ti!i..n "
f the word, and so is, !v
wishes known. Can nothing be done
to lead our people to a more constant
and devout study of the Bible ? Per
haps the pulpit will do well to stress
more than hitherto its importance.
Just now space can taken to add
only these few thoughts : Put away
all temptations to neglect it ; and,
likewise, put away all pretexts, how
ever specious, to read daily only
small portions of it. A hint of such
pretext has been given. Men say
read a little only, and digest what
you read. The fact is, we are more
disposed to meditation when we read
much. Moreover, by so doing, one
take3 in more fully the current of
ho ught ; and with this knowledge of
the historical connection, or of the
argument, the truth is more readily
pprehended or understood. Read
much, hot these reasons, among
others, the disinclination to the read
ng of the Scriptures will be over
come, and taste required for what
may have hitherto been a weariness.
The more the Bible is read, the more
interests, and the better it is under
stood. And, do not fear that through
much reading it will ever become
dull or stale. It is a common remark
of those who habitually read
the Scriptures, they are always new.
And this is not strange. Books writ
ten by men, though they may be
never so abstruse, can be mastered
they can be made to) yield their con
tents; and when this point is reached
they have nothing more to give.
Men's books contain men's thoughts.

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 for the remainder
of the night. She got the croup the
second night and I gave her the same
remedy with the same good results,
write this because I thought there
might be some one in the same need
and not know the true merits of this
woncrful medicine." Ciiarlks A.

that the future of woman will be one
of mind rather than of heart. Power
of mind in itself no more makes a
true woman than does wealth, beauty
of person, or social station. But a
clear intellect, a well-trained mind
adorns a woman, just a9 an ivy will
adorn a specified oak ; a true woman
has a power, something peculiarly
her own. in her moral influence.
which, when fully developed, makes
her queen over a wide realm of spirit.
But this she can possess only as her
powers are cultivated. Cultivated
women yield the scepter of authority
over the world at large. Wherever
a cultivated woman dwells, be Bure
that there you will find refinement,
moral power of life in its highest
form. For a woman to be cultivated
she must begin early: the days of
girlhood are transitory and fast-fleeting,
and girls are women before we
know it, in these rapid times.

Read Before Signing.
Among the pithy sayings of a well-
known German philosopher and
reader occurs the lollowing : "Sign
no paper without reading it." In
these days of education, enlighten
ment, and progress, such a caution
would hardly seem necessary to any
person in the full possession of his
faculties; yet it is astonishing how
many people there are, including
good business men, which attach
their signatures to papers or docu
ments whose contents may have a
serious bearing upon themselves or
their affairs, with scarcely a glance at
their contents. Carelessness in fail
ing to acquaint themselves with the
contents of a paper before signing it
has worked incalculable harm to
thousands of well intentioned people.
It is a good thing, therefore, to bear
in mind continuously the above quo
tation, particulary with respect to
such papers as express or imply any
thing in the nature of a contract or a
legal obligation. Trader Review.

Cholera Cure !
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.
