WHAT OF THAI ?
Tired! Well, what of that?
Didst fancy life was spent on beds of ease,
Fluttering the rose leaves scattered by the
Come, rouse thee, work while it is called
Coward, arise! Go forth upon thy wav!
Lonely! And what of that?
Some must be lonely! 'Tia not civeu to all
To feel a heart responsive rise and full,
To blend another life into its own.
Work may be done in loneliness. Work on.
Dark! Well, and what of that?
Didst fondly dream the sun would never
Dost fear to lose tby way? Take courage
Learn thou to walk by faith and not by
Thy steps will guided be, and guided right.
Hard! , Well, what of that?
Didst fancy life one summer holiday,
With lessons none to learn, and nought but
Go, get thee to thy task! Conquer or die!
It must be learned! Learn it, then, patient

Though human help be far, thy God is
Who feeds the ravens, heais his children's
He's near thee, whereso'er thy footsteps
And he will guide thee, light thee, help thee
The Rod in God's School.
BY REV. THEODORE L. CULYEH.
In the school of human life, the di
vine Teacher not only gives instruc
tion, but often applies the rod; and
on none doe9 the rod fall more heavi
ly, than on those who are too head
strong or self-conceited to be taught
by God or man. Who of us has not
at some time felt the smart of that
deserved rod? As we turn over the
leaves of life's record-book, we come
upon those silly, self-willed days,
when presumption mounted the en
gine, and prudence never used the
brakes. To one comes up the sad
memory of lost opportunities to gain
certain kinds of knowledge, the want
of which leaves a mortifying gap; to
another the memory of a premature
rush into business without proper
training for it or the choice of com
panions who were a subtle poison to
the soul or some other pitiable blun
der that has left its ugly scar.
I might point to more than one de
jected, care-stricken woman,to whom
sighs are her daily cup. Time was
when that face beamed with girl
hood's gladness, and when her maid
en hand held on the pivot of a Yes or
No, the destiny of her . life. Passion
said "Yes," prudence said "No."
Parents and wiser heads warned her,
that she was entrusting her heart to
a man who would break it. All this
proved but wasted breath to one who
had determined to have her own way
and a thorny way it has proved to
her. If the pity of friends could
smooth that careploughed face, and
light up that dreary home, then she
might be a happy queen today. But
pity never mends shattered porce
lain. Pity comes too late for those
who are "wise in their own conceit'
for no spot on earth affords such a
poor market for good suggestions as a
self-conceited head. If young people
will not listen to parents or superiors,
they must learn wisdom from that
hard-hearted old teacher, stern Ex
periences. In the management of
God's great earthly school, there is
always a rod in store for the fool's
back, as well as a crown for those
who seek the wisdom that cometh
Paul struck a very profound truth
when he said "If any man thinketh
that he is wise among you in this
world, let him become a fool that he
may become wise." (Revised Ver
sion.) That is, let him be teachable.
If Newton had been above learning
from the twitchings of a frog's limbs,
science would have lost two of itsmost
brilliant discoveries. The highest
proof of statesmanship is to be taught
by the logic of events. He, or she,
who waiteth at the door-posts of
heavenly wisdom, is sure to be led
into usefulness and honor. The soul
that is always keeping its eye open to
watch the leadings of Providence,
and its ear always open to catch the
"still small voice" of the Holy Spirit,
is the soul that seldom commits a se
rious mistake. Emptied of self is
constantly tilled from the fulness of
One of the constant conflicts in our
daily lives, is the conflict between
self-conceit and God's wisdom, be
tween self-will and God's guidance
When we take the reins out of His
ing capsized into the dust. When
we follow thti sparks of our own
kindling,they lead us intoquagmlers.
How often we devise a way for our-
selves; and God could not have let a
severer punishment on us, than to let
us have our own way. So He sends
His policeman of disappointment or
chastisement to drive us back. We
may rebel bitterly at first.but by-and-by
when we see what we have escap
ed, we ar.e ready to bless the rod that
smote us in-the face. If we ever
reach heaven, we shall sing a song of
praise for the disappointments which
so often helped us on by putting us
back, which stripped us to make" the
travel safer, and which made us feel
like fools, that we might be taught of
the Holy Spirit. Ah, brethren, this
is a wonderful school which our Di
vine Teacher is conducting. He never
spares the rod when His child is in
danger of being spoiled. His probe
goes deep, and His pruning-knifecuts
keen; but when term-time is over,
those wlfo are willing to learn from
rod and probe and pruiting-knife,
will graduate with highest honors.
Down at the bottom of every un
converted heart, lies some form or
other of selfishness, and this keeps
them from Christ. It may be a self
conceit that refuses to be taught of
God, or a self-satisfaction that refuses
to face Its own utter depravity, or a
subtle self-righteousness of Christ as
the only ground of salvation. My
impenitent friend, you will never
move a step towards a better life, un
til your self-conceit is shattered, and
begin to see yourself as others see
you, and above all, as God sees you.
Never will you cry for pardon as long
as you feel that you do not need
pardon. Never will you flee to
the Cross while the devil holds you
under the delusion that you need no
Saviour. How can I convince you
that your own wisdom is the wis-,
dom of a fool; your own boasted
strength thaf of a pigmy; and your
righteousness but a rotten rag in the
sight of a holy God? In the mean
time you are robbing yourself of the
very best and sweetest things that
Christ can give you; you are risking
the eternal remorse of your own
ruin! The rods of kind chastisement
in this world, are to bring you to re
pentance; but the rod of retribution
in the next world has no hope and
no Saviour under it. They that
know their duty and stubbornly re
fuse to do it, shall be "beaten with
many stripes " There is such a
thing in the next world as "the
wrath of the Lamb" of God, and you
will feel it if you reject His wondrous
and wooing love in this world.
The Dying Boy and the Lost Sheep.
Many years ago I was engaged in
work for the Lord in a remote dis
trict in Ireland, a wild mountainous
region, and wa9 asked to visit a boy
who was dying.
Entering a little hovel, I saw him
lying on a heap of straw.
"My poor boy you are very ill; I
fear you suffer a great deal."
He replied with difficulty: "Yes, I
have a bad cold; the cough takes
away my breath, and hurts me a
"Have you had this cough long?"
"Uh yes, a Jong time: near a year
"And how did you catch it?"
"Ah," he answered, "it was that
terrible night about this time last
year when one of the sheep went
astray. My father keeps a few sheep
upon the mountain, and that's the
way we live. When he counted
them that night there was one want
ing, and he sent me to look for it."
"No doubt," I replied, "you felt
the change from the warmth of the
peat fire in this close hut to the cold
"On, that l dial There was snow
upon the ground, and the wind pierc
ed me through, and through; but 1
didn't mind it much, l was so anx
ious to find father's sheep."
"And did you find it?" I asked
with increasing interest.
"Oh yes; I had a long, weary way
to go, but I never stopped till I found
it; and I just laid it on my shoulder
and carried it home that way."
"And were they not all at home
rejoiced to see you when you returned
with the sheep?"
"Sure enough and they were! Fath
er and mother 'and the people around
that had heard of our loss all came in
next morning to ask us about the
sheep; for your reverence knows that
the neighbors in these matters are
very kind to each other. Sorry they
were too, to hear that I was kept out
the whole dark night; it was morn
ing before I got home, and the end of
it was that I caught the cold."
the whole gospel history; the sheep
h lost; the father sends his son to
seek for and recover it; the sun goes
willingly, suffers all without com
plaining, and in the end sacrifices his
life to find the sheep.
Header, has the Good Shepherd
found you? He is seeking you, and
If you seek Him you shall find Him.
"Tenderly the Shepherd, o'er the mountains
Goes to bring the lost one back to the fold
Seeking to save,
Lost one, 'tis Jesus, seeking to save."

for some years, which were sure to

He Ifinds that Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is reliable. It opens the se-.
cretions, relieves the lungs and re
stores the system to a healthy condi
tion. If freely used as soon ns the
cold has been contracted and before
it has becomo settled in the system,
it greatly lessens the attack and often
cures in a single day what would
otherwise have teen a severe cold.

What Horses Die Of.
A New York horse life insurance
company, insuring only sound and
generally young animals, worth be
tween $100 and $100 each reports
that, of 701 horses dying within the

inflammation of the bowels, 74 of
kidney trouble, 51 of pneumonia,, 52

lightning, 128 died of unknown
diseases, and only 8 were burned.
A Good Record.
"I have sold Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy for ten years," says drug
gist, E. B. Legg, of Vail, la-, "and
have always warranted it and never
had a bottle returned. During the
past 90 days I have sold twelve doz
en and it has given perfect satisfac
tion in every instance." It does not
dry up ii cough, but loosens and re
lieves it. It will cure a severe cold
in less time than any other treat
ment. 50 cent and $1 bottles for sale

The discovery has been accidental
ly made that flour thrown on burning
oil will extinguish it instantly. An
old lady was coming out of a pantry
with a pan of flour when a lamp ex
ploded and the oil was at once in
flames. In her fright she dropped
the pan of flour, which, falling on
the burning oil extinguished it.
Some one who heard of the incident
had an opportunity of testing it prac
tically soon after and the device
worked exactly as stated. It is well
worth making a note of, as water is
worse than useless in such a case.

was torn to pieces. The hull sank
shortly after the accident, leaving the
cabin afloat. Two lives are known
to have been lost in the accident, and
