Another day lookb smiling on the world;
It holds now laurels for thy soul to win

Half-way tuto the.qog4-the r.ok's igh noon

Ustinotively we look toward the night.
The glow is lost.

So well thle week has sped, hast thou a friend

New beuty to thy labors and thy 1l1f
To pause a little sometimes in the strife.
Toil soon seems rude
That has no interlude.
From feast ab tain ; be temperate, and pray;
Fast if thou wilt ; and yet, throughout tie day,
Neglect no labor and no duty shrink -
For many hours are left thee for thy work
And it were meet

Now with the almost finished task n ake haste;
So near the night, thou hast no time to waste.
Post up accounts, and lot thy soul's eyes look
For filaws and errors in hfo's ledger-book.

How sweet the sense of peace !

place aiong sciences. These bodices
ours are exceedingly complicated and del
cate machines, not to be sa'fely tamnpere

fectly developed human body.
And when the value of these bodies, no
only as physical organisnis but as related tc
mental growth, Is fully appreciated, the
work of the skilled cook will rank with
that of other great scientists, and, more
than this, with that of other great philan
thropists. It is not extravagant to say that
the progress of humanity toward true per
fection dtepends largely on this branch of
domestiac economy. Ilow Iluch thought,
Iime and study are given now to the proper
food for flue stock? Here in our own lab
oratory extensive analyses of grasses,
grains, etc., have been mado in order to
determine which will most rapidly and
healthfully stimulate tile growth of cattle
and swine. Surely we owe as much care
'to our children as to our herds- It is cer
tainly true that just in proportion to the ad
Vance of any people in civilization will be
the advance of care and skidl in the prepa
ration of food. it is therefore worthy of
absorbing study. Health, mental vigor,
virtue and happiness depsend more closely
than we are apt to imagine on the cook who
reigns In our kitchen.
