WHEN I BEHOLD TRY FACE.
When I behold thy face
Thy beauty strikes we mute;
I cannot sing thy praise
Nor urge my loVing suit;
I hold my peace and stand apart,
Lips silent, tho' not so my heart.
I fear, yea strongly fear,
Thy suitor eloquent;
Ills words within thine ear
Are all with music blent;
Yet thou hast eyes and wit to see
He means not half he swears to thee.
Ah I were his gift but mine,
I'd so applaud thee, love,
The stars should cease to shine,
The fleeting earth to move,
And heaven and hell should listen long
fo catch the butden of my song.
- The Critic.
Riv. W. UI. KIRTON IN CHRISTIAN
ADVOCATE.-Easley, January 9. -We
reached our new field of labor, Pick
ens circuit, on the night of the 24th of
Decemter, Just one week after the ad
journment of Conference. By reason
of a disappointment, we weae several
hours behind the time that we were
expected, and consequently a consid
erable company which assembled at
the parsonage to welcome us to omu
new home, was also disappointed.
We were sorry, very sorry, but we had
to accept the aituation. Conpulsion i"
a mighty power, of frequent manifes
tations, in a great complicated world
like this. On our arrival, we found
that we had been sent to a kind peo
ple. A bountifully spread table, th
fine turkey, together with other luxu
ries which greeted our eyes as we en
tered the dining-room, manifested
thoughtful kindness and good taste on
the part of our new friends, and were
enjoyed and appreciated bythe preach
(' anld his family. We also 101111d
flour, sugar, coffee, potatoes, and oth.
er necessarics in the larder. I ani
ex)ect.ing a year of hard, but agree
able and stuecessful work. We lave -i
good parsonage in the town of Easley,
with church, railroad anid school ad
vamtages. Sonme additional furniture
has beenu brought in since our arrival,
and more will be providedi. One o1
thme official brethen at ti place har
very kindly undertaken to supervist
the dligging of a well for thme conIven
iane of the parsonage, and anothel
ha~s b~een kind eniough to sendl for :
good coobk stove. Thus it may be seer
that there are go)od subshtntial reasonm
for my hope of success. Bro. Etwell
