THERE AllE TWO WAYS TO LIVE
There lire two ways to live on earth;
Two wavs to judge, to act, to view;
For nil thing here have double birth
A right, a wrong; a false, a true.
(iive me the home where kindness seeks
To make that sweet which ncemeth small;
Where every lip in fondness speaks,
' Aud every mind hath care for all;
Whose iiiniiites live in glad exchange
Of pleasures, free from vain expense;
Whose lives beyond their means ne'er range,
Nor wise denials give offense;
Who in a neighbor's fortune find
No wish, no impulse to complain;
Who feel not never felt the mind
To envy yet another's gain!
Who dream not of the mocking tide
Ambition's foiled endeavor meets
The bitter pangs of wounded pride,
Nor fallen Power, that shuns the streets.
Though Fate deny its glitt'ring store,
m. Love's wealth is still the wealth to ehoose;
For all that gold can purchase more
Are gauds it is no loss to lose!
Some beings, wheresoe'er they go,
. Find naught to please, or exalt;
Their constant xiiiiiy but to show
Perpetual modus of finding fault.
While oti.ers, in the ceaseless round
Of daily wants and daily care,
Can yet cull flowers from common ground,
And twice enjoy the joy they share!
Oh, happy they who happy make!
Who, blessing, still themselves are blest!
Who something spare for others' sake, '
And strive, in all things, for the best!
"IN GOD WE TRUST." .

The origin of this motto on our
gold and silver coins,according to the
Brooklyn Eagle, is as follows, The
motto, "In God We Trust," which is
now stamped on all gold and silver
coins of United States money, was
sungrsti'd by im honest,' God-fearing
old fjinoi-r of (he stale of Maryland.
( lb- thought our national coinage
should indicate the Christian charac
ter of this nation, and by introducing
a motto upon its coins express a na
tional reliance upon divine support
in governmental, affairs. In 18(51,
when Salmon P. Chase was secretary
of tire Treasury, he wrote him and
suggested that, as we claimed to be a
Christian people, we should make
tuitabb recognition of that fact on our
coinage. The letter va referred to
the director of the Mint, James Pol
lock, of Pennsylvania. In Mr. Pol
lock's report for 1802 he discussed the
question of a recognition of the sov
ereignty of God and our trust in Him
on our coins, The proposition to in-
troduce a motto upon our coins was
favorably considered by Mr. Chase,
and in the report he said he did not
doubt that it would meet with an ap
proval by an intelligent public senti
ment. But Congress gave no atten
tion to the suggestion,and in his next
annual report he again referred to the
subject, this time in a firm, theologi
cal argument, and said, "The motto
suggested, 'God Our Trust," is taken
from our national hymn, 'The Star
Spangled Banner.' The sentiment is
familiar to every citizen of our coun
try; it has thrilled millions of Amer
ican freemen. The time is propitious;
'tis an hour of national peril and dan
ger, an hour when man's strength is
weakness, when our strength and sal
vation must be of God. Let us rev
erently acknowledge His sovereignty,
and let our coinage declare our trust
in ( Jod." A two-cent bronze piece was
authorized to be coined by Congress
the followingftyear, April 22, 1801,
and upon this was first stamped the
motto "In God We Trust." In his
report for that year he expressed his
approval of the act and strongly urg
ed that the recognition of trust be ex
tended to the gold and silver coins of
the United States. By the fifth sec
tion of the Act of Congress of March
3, 1S65, the director of the mint, with
the approval of the secretary of the
Treasury, was authorized to place
upon all the gold and silver coin of
the United States susceptible of such
addition thereafter to be issued the
motto "In God We Trust."

There is no more wholesome vege
table than onions, but many fastidious
persons are deterred from eating them
on account of the taint they give to the
breath. It is said that this disagreea
ble odor may be removed by drinking
sweet milk after eating the onions. A
cupful of strong coffee is also recom
mended. The simplest way to make icing is
to take a small quantity of finely-sifted
sugar say half a pound and add to it
just enough cold water to wet it When
your cakes are quite cold pour on some
of this icing, and set them in a cold place
where there is sufficient current of air
to dry the icing. It ought to be quite
white and firm when set.
The troublesome red spider, accord

showering the plant infested by it with
dry insect powder, which should be left
on about twenty-four hours; or by

tub of tepid water and letting it remain
all night. In the morning gentry wash
the plant by running the leaves through
the fingers while they are under water.
Eel Soup. Take three pounds of
eels; cut them into slices and stew them
ten minutes over the fire in three table
spoonfuls of butter; then pour on to
them two quarts of water; add a large
crust of bread, one onion cut in slices, a
little mace, a very little cayenne, one
carrot sliced, and salt to suit taste; cover
the stewpan closely and simmer until
the eels are tender, but not broken; mix
three dessertspoonfuls of flour with a
quarter of a pint of cream: remove the
slices of eels from the soup and place
them in the tureen: strain the soup and
add the thickening, and then pour care
fully over the eels: serve with toast cut
in dice-like pieces. This soup will cook
in one hour. Hoston Herald.
A smalj and almost imperceptible
hang-nail often involves the owner of
the hand which bears it in an endless
amount of annoyance and vexation. It
is the general rule, manicures to the
contrary notwithstanding, that the
nails that are the least attended are bet
ter than those that are continually doc
tored. The man who cuts a.hang-nail
in nine cases out of ten lays the way for
a much more vigorous successor. Satis
factory results are almost always ob
tained by adopting the habit of pushing
the skin back from the nail after wash
ing the hands. The dry end of the
towel should be taken, and the skin
pressed back wherever it overruns the
nail. This breaks its adhesiveness to
the nail and makes hang-nails impossi
ble. YOUNG WOOD-WORKERS.

One of the I'seful Branches of the lulu

Let us visit the large, airy room, con
taining forty-eight benches (though
only half that number of scholars is al
lowed to work at a time), where boys of
the first year spend two periods of each
day learning to work in. wood. Each
bench hns a neat set of tools snugly put
away in a little closed cupboard which
stands on the bench. Each boy has his
own and keeps it in good order. Sus
pended above the bench is a blue-print
picture of the piece of work which is to
be given for the day's lesson. From a
large lumber-room on another floor,
boards of a suitable siz.e have been
brought, and as the boys come in, with
faces full of interest in the work before
them, they lay aside any superfluous
articles of dress in neat lockers in the
adjoining room. Each lias been taught
the use of hammer and plane, saw,
chisel and square, one, at a time; and
now, with a few instructions from the
teacher in charge, the scholar knows
just how to go to work. Perhaps it is
a joint or a sash that is given to him.
He works carefully, frequently consult
ing his blue-print model. The result of
his work is not a matter of indifference,
by any means. Thirty patterns of dif
ferent pieces must be made, and accept
ed by the instructor, before the boy can
pass from this room to the next; and as
much depends on his faithfulness in this
this part of his duty as in the geometry
or chemistry class.
Next term, all who have successfully
completed this work will go on to the
wood-turning room, where there are for
