THE 8IL7ER LINING.
A fisherman sat at his door one day,
Watching the clouda that heavy and gray
Obscured the sunlight's shining,
And said to Bright Eyes at his knees;
"Look yonder otit in the West and see
The cloud with the silver lining."
I think when our skies are cold and gray,
And we vainly seek to find the way,
Somewhere the light is shining.
If we bravely resolve to do oui part,
And bear our griefs with a patient heart,
And free from all repining.
We shall be led to a higher way,
To a better work than we do today,
And find love's sunlight shining;
For truth of spirit and strength of soul
Will make the darkest cloud unroll
And show its silver lining. ,
The Divining Bod.
From tho large number of inquiries
about divining rods and their cflicaey,
we infer it to be a subject i which 'a-.
terests a great many persons. The
latest nccount on this mystic subject
comes from Australia. , Mr. William
Spiers, M. A., 'P. O.S., F. R. M. S.,
writes to the Mining Standard,
"Probably most of your readers have
heard of the 'divining rod,' and have
concluded that it was either a myth
or that its effects were the result of
evil agency. The reports that by its
means subterranean watercourses or
buried minerals have been discovered
are generally rejected as mere ru
mors, or as instances of self-deception
or even fraud, I confess I have been
myself quite ft skeptic in regard to
the matter, but I have now what I
consider good reasons for recanting.
Being recently in tlie company of a
few geologists on the Yorkshire
Wolds, it was stated that one of our
company was able to discover hidden
water or metals by means of the
mngic rod. Our friend cut out of the
hedgerow a fork of hawthorn shaped
like a long V. Holding a prong in
each hand, with the apex downward,
we soon had an opportunity of seeing
that 'there was something in it.'
Here and there as he slowly walked
along, the apex of the branch curled
upward as if alive. I knew the gen
tleman too well to suspect that he
was cheating us, but, in order to see
that he was not self-deceived, I
placed my hand around the muscK-s
which must have moved had the
contortions of the rod been due to
unconscious muscular contractions.
I quite satisfied myself upon that
"I then requested him to close his
eyes, and I led him over a small
rivulet that was running down the
hill on which we were walking, and
the moment he reached it the rod
commenced its remarkable move
ments. As soon as I touched it with
my fingers it resumed its natural po
sition. For water it moved away
from him, but for metals it swung
round in the opposite direction. To
test this a botanical ease made of
galvanized iron was brought near
our necromaucer, and tho rod at once
Hew up. Our friend related many
discoveries that he has made during
the last 20 years. Generally he used
hazel. Copper wire shows the same
peculiarities, and this we were able
to see at the time. When standing
on a non-conductor, such as broken
china, the effects were not produced.
Our comrade is a student of science,
and has not sought to make money
by his gift, and this, of course, makes
it impossible to doubt his integrity.
''He has plans of wells that have
been sunk in various places as the
result of his indications, and in tme
instance he was instrumental in (lis
covering a disused ana lorgouen gas
main. As he found out quite acci
dentally that he possessed this
faculty, it may be that some of your
readers may make a similar discovery
in regaru to themselves, and, as
Abraham Cowley puts it, may amuse
themselves by searching 'with fond
divining rods among the dead for

was persuaded to try Dr. King's Isew

AN ECONOMICAL MAJf.
He lived on thirteen cents a day
Ten cents for milk and craclco
One cent for dissipation guy
And two cents for tobacco.
And if be wished an extra dish
He'd take his pole and catch a fish.
And If his stomach raised a war
'Gainst his penurious habit.
Ee'd ko and kill a woodchuck or
Assassinate a rabbit.
And thus he'd live In sweet content
On food that never cost a cent.
And. tb&t he might lay by in bank
The proceeds of his labor,
He'd happen 'round at meals, the crank,
And dine upon his neighbor.
And then he'd eat enough to last
Until another day hud passed.
He bought no pantaloons nor vest,
,Nor rich, expensive Jacket;
He had one suit his pa's bequest
He thought would "stand the racket."
He patched it thirty years, 'tis true,
And then declared 'twas good as new.
ne owned but one suit to his back
And minus cuffs and collars.
He died, and left bis nephew Jack
Nine hundred thjusand dollars I
And Jack he rau this fortune through
Aud only took a year or two.

Mncaulny as an Orator.
Men listened to Macaulay with respect,
weighed his arguments, reflected on
what he had said, were often convinced,
conietimes converted; but nowhere did
crowds of eager listeners and ardent ad
misers bend beneath tho music of his
voice or the lightning glauce of his eye.
An old friend of mine, recenty dead,
who had often heard him and remem
bered him perfectly, assured me that ho
was a great power 50 years ago, and ho
believed that his oratorical triumphs
hardly received full credit in those days.
Macaulay himself said that one of iiis
chief defects as a public speaker was his
extraordinary rapidity of utterance,
which spoiled the effect of his words.
His speeches resembled carefully pre
pared essays, delivered with incredible
rapidity and some want of impressivo
ness, rather thau the spontaneous out
burst of the orator's full heart. Fluency
aud great facility in finding the right
words are not an unmixed gain to tho
speaker. Appropriate pauses and em
phasis aro even more important; other
wise a torrent of words lack impressive
ness. Then tho management of the
voico counts very much. A speech that
Hows on like a rope unwound from a
cylinder is not a good one. Again, to
be successful a speech must be enlivened
with anecdotes or humor; people can
always read for solid instruction, but a
platform speaker must amuse and please
rather than teach. Gentleman's Magazine.
