And s little leaven of prayer, ' "
And a little bit of morning gold,
Dissolved in the morning uir.
Add to your nianl some merriment,
A nd a thought for kith and kin;
And then, as your prime ingredient,
A plenty of work thrown in.
But spice it all with the essence of love,
And a little whiff of play;
Let a wise old Book and t glance above
Complete the well made day.
Skipping the Hard Points.
Boys, I want to ask how you think
. . . ...
a conqueror wuulu make out wno
went through a country, which he
was trying to subdue, and whenever
le found a fort that was hard to take
eft it alone? Don't you think that
the enemy would buzz wild there,
ike bees in a hive, and when he was
well into the heart of the country,
don't you fancy they would swarm
out and harass him terribly?
Just so, I want you to remember,
t will be with you it you slip over
the hard places in your lessons, and
ave thetn unlearned; you have left
an enemy in the rear that will not
fail to harass you and mortify you
times without number.
"There was just a little bit of my
Latin I hadn't read," said a vexed
student to me, "and it was just there
the professor had to call upon me at
examination. There were just three
or four examples I had passed over,
and one of those I was asked to do on
The student who is not thorough is
never well at ease; he cannot forget
the skipped problems; and the con
sciousneas of his deficiencies makes
him nervous and anxious.
Never laugh at the slow, plodding
student; the time will surely come
when the laugh will be turned. It
takes time to be thorou h, but it
more than pays. Resolve when you
take up a new study that you will go
through with it like a successful con
queror, taking every strong point.
If the inaccurate scholar's diflicul
ties closed with his school life, it
might not be so great a matter for his
future career. But he has chained to
himself a habit that will be like an
iron ball at his hnels all th rest of his
life. Whatever he does will be lack
ing somewhere. He has learned to
shirk what is hard, and the habit will
grow with years.
, Condescending to be Ministers.
At a recent meeting of the Meth
odist ministers of London, says the
Canada Presbyterian, Dr. Parker
gave the following wholesome ad vice,
greatly needed by some men who are
ministers aad by many who are not:
"Never allow yourself to think
that in any other position you would
have been greater than the preacher
When a man tells me that if he had
been a mill-owner he would have
been a millionaire, I believe that he
would have been the last syllable or.
ly. I never feel that for any work
that I havo ever dono in the Chris
tiiin ministry Chrjst is indebted to
me. I go to him and thank him that
hehas given me the great honor o
preaching. If any man thinks ho is
honoring the ministry by being in it
he has no place in it. We cannot
patronize the Son of God."
That is exactly w hat teo many peo
ple do. They miht: possibly shrink
from saying that they "patronize the
Son of God," but they manifestly fee
that tney patronize tne t'liurcn o
God, which is substantially the same
It is no unusual thing to hear men
speak as if they conferred a wonder
ful favor on the Church Christ bought
with his own blood if they accept
s ime office or undertake some work
Nobody should be allowed to patron
lze Christ's Church. Better a thou
sand times to let the office go unfillet
or tne worK undone, w e nave no
right to put Christ's cause in such
position that any man can patronize
it. Closely akin to the spirit, that
pntronizen Christ is the spirit that
boasts of the amount of work done
for him. Such boasting, besides he
ing the very quintessence of conceit
is entirely useless, it the ijortt owes
any man, lay or clerical, anything
he will pay him. Christ will not be
any man's debtor.
"A Great Fish."
Pish of such size that they i-an
swallow a man whole, and which are
so formed as to naturally swallow
their prey whole, have been found in
the Mediterranean. The- white
shark, having teeth merely incissivc
have no choice except between swal
lowing its prey whole, or cutting off
portion of it. It cannot hold its prey
or swallow it piecemeal. Its vorac
ity leads it to swallow at once,
which it can. A natural historian of
repute relates: "In I7.f8, in stormy
weather, a sailor fell overboard from
a frigate in the Mediteranean. A
shark was close by, which, as lie wns
swimming and crying for help, took
im in his wide throat, so that he
forthwith disappeared. Other sail
ors had lept Into the sloop, to help
their comrade, while yet Hwimming :
the captain had a gun which stood on
the deck discharged at the fish.
which struck it so that it cast out the
sailor which it had In its throat, who
was taken up, alive, and little injur
ed, by the sloop which had come up.
he fish was harpooned, taken up on
the frigate, and died. The captain
made a present of the fish to the sail
or who, by God's providence, had
been so wonderfully preserved. The
sailor went round Europe exhibiting
If we will only have patience with
God's leading he will always show
the way as fast as we are ready to go
on. 1 ho trouble with us is that we
want to see the path through to the
end before we take the first steu.
We want to know before we start
how we are to come out, But this is
not God's way for us. A man who
is traveling in a dark night on a
country road does not have the whole
way lighted at once by the lantern
:ie carries. It shows him only one
step ; but as he takes that the lantern
s borne forward, and another step is
lghted, and then another, and an
other, until in the end, the whole
way has been illuminated, and he
s safe a t his destinatiwn. God's
word as a guiding light, is a lamp
unto our feet, not a sun-flofding a
hemisphere. In the darkest night It
will always show us the next step.
Then, when we have taken that, it
will show us another; and thus on,
till it brings us out into thp full clear
sunlight of the coining day. We
need to learn well the lesson of pa
tience if we would have God guide
Fattening at Different Ages.
Cor. Country Gentleman.
I will say to your correspondent,
T. D. K, on page 10, that I will eive
the experience I had during four yea
of growing and fattening 41 three-
year-old steers, and also the next
winter feeding 44 large cuttle from 6
to 9 years old. Both lots were fed on
roots, mostly beets, in the morning,
and on corn meal mixed with
s ime oatmeal and oil meal cake
at night, with a good allowance
of hay through the day. It was
clearly shown that the best suc
cess in growing steers is obtained bv
m iking a two-year-old as large and
worth more money than the common
run of three-year-old steers, gaining
one year by a little extra feed and
corn. Also that winter-feeding of
cattle cannot be a success unless they
are in good condition to commence
feeding in the fall ; and farther, that
steers the winter before they are two
years old will gain five or six times
as much as older cattle, or the one
mentioned as being 1U years old, and
with much less feed. On the first lot,
after paying liberally all the expense
of raising and fattening, there was i
clear profit of nearly ?G(J0.
The second lot was bought witl
great care, and well attended, anc
sold the same as the others, about the
1st of May, and the price receivet
i . i
o ny paici me purcnase money anu
the cost of the hay, leaving a loss of
a' I the other teed. There has been a
time when beef was worth, in the
s.iring, double the price it was worth
in the fall, making it an object to feet
Winters, even if little is gained ex
cept keeping the Uesh that came
from the pasture in the fall ; but
the cheap feeding at the West
and the quick transfer to market,
have equalized the price through the
year all over the country, so that it i
less an object to feed here, where the
price of grain is double it is at tin
West where corn is plenty, and the
best grain for fattening any kind o
stock. W. II., Predonia, N. Y.
