Joy be commingled with grief in your cup;
Troubles may rise to distress and eon found you,
But keep a brave spirit and never give up.
Friends may forsake and your foes all assail

Striving with malice your progress to stop ;
Long tried supports in a moment may fRil you,
But stand to your purpose and never give up.

But keep a brave spirit and never give up.
Envious ones may conspire to betray you 2
False ones deprive you of every prop;
Anger and hatred mute to dismay you,
But stand like a hero and never give up.
Poverty's band may be heavy on you>
Bitter as wormwood the draught in tho cup;
Coldly and scornfully men may look on you,
But stand to your purpose and never give up.

Joy bo commingled with grief in your cup;
Tronblos may rise to distress and confound you,
But keep a brave spirit and nerer give up.
Death, tho grim tyrant himself may assail you,
Health, strength and vigor together may drop;
Nothing on earth will be found to avail you,
But look to the promise and never give up.
He who ia able and willing as ever,
Himself bath destroyed all of death in thy
cup;
Presents Himself now an eternal life-giver,
To those who are faithful and never give up.

But keep a brave ppirit and never give up.
TI-TE C MILDItEN".
Lilly's Christmas Gift.
"So you had a good time, did you, on
Christmas, dears," said kiudMiss Austin,
ns her young pupils came ilocking hack
to school after tho holidays.
"Now, how many remembered the res
olution we made the evening before we
parted ? Will some one tell us first what
it was."
"We resolved to mako just as many
j^eurts happy as we could on this holiday
week," said Marcia.
"Now, I do not like to teach you to
bo boastful of your good decdis, girls, but
if some of you would tell us how you
tried to carry this out, I know it would
interest us all, and wo might learn some
lessons for our future by it. Wc do
leant much from each other in these mat
ters. Would you he willing to tell us
about your Christmas, Lilly?"
"Yes, ma'am," said Lilly, pleasantly,
"though I have not much to tell. Grandma
and I livo very quietly together. I hud
but little money to make presents with
nud that little I felt as though I ought
to spend tor grandma. I bought her a:
nice warm pair of crochacd shoes to
wear over her slippers, and a bright,
new breakfast shawl, which made her
very comfortable and happy. I remem
bered v/hat Miss Austiu said about poor
children who get no Christmas things, so I
baked up a pan of Christmas cakes, in
the shape of rabbits and birds, and made
twelve patty pan pics, which I gave to
twelve poor children I knew. I also cut
out some cloth mittens, like thoso you
taught us to make, and gave to four chil
dren I sec very often going to the mills
blue with the cold. I put a cake in each
mitten. I made a suit from my own
clothes for our washerwoman's little girl,
and that gave her great pleasure, as she
was very destitute. 1 took a portion of
our Christmas dinner to a poor old man
who saws our wood. Ho lives quite
?lone, and it makes me happy every time
I think of his pleased, surprised look,
lie was just wilting down to n dinner of
Bult pork and potatoes. I don't know
that 1 did anything else ; indeed thia was
hardly worth telling. In tho afternoon,
I only ran to ece a poor old neighbor,
who is nearly blind, and take her a little
pie. Then 1 wrote a letter for her to
her son, and read tier a chapter in the
Bible she Ioycs so well. " That seemed to
give her much pleasure."
"It is a very pleasant story, Lilly, and
if I have reckoned all right, you made
nineteen people happy by your Christ
mas gifts. A very good day's record,
and shows us all how much can be ac
complished with very little outlay of
money. If we have only the willing
mind we shall have abundance of ways
open up before us by which wo may make
other hearts rejoice."?[Mrs. J. E. Mc
Conoughy.

Farm and Garden?
'Agriculture is the General Pursuit of man: It
is the JIasis of oil others, and therefore, the
most Useful and Honorable.1'
Out* grow better on land that has been
recently cultivated, than upon .sedge or
other old fields. They will grow very
well, however, on the latter, if they are
properly prepared. They should be turn
ed over at once, io give the soil an airing,
and the vegetable matter time to 'decay.
If the turn plough is followed hy a sub
Boiler, all the better; but it is well to run
the turn plough pretty deep, so that the
vegetablo matter may not ho disturbed
when covering the oat seed. At seeding
time,(from the 1st September to the mid
dlo of October,) scatter the seed, harrow
them in and then go over the field with
a "smoother." "When oats are sowed
very late, a ridging of tho land is desira
ble?the plants in the hollows being there
by protected from the cold, and the free
zes throwing loose dirt into tho hollows,
cover the plantsjinorc or less, and pro
vent their being lifted out of the ground.
Tho drill leaves land ridged and this, for
tho reason given above, is claimed as one
of tho many advantages of that machine.
Where the condition of the land permits
the employment, we prefer always to use
it in seeding down to small grain or
grasses. Any land which has been well
turned over with a good two-horse plough
to a depth of 4 or 5 inches, and theu har
rowed and finally rasped down with n
smoother, will be in a condition to be
seeded down with a drill. Stumpy and
rocky laud only, therefore, need be ex
cepted.?[Southern Cultivator.
BARLEY AND RYE.
Good, largo patches of these should be
prepared for winter grazing. The land
intended for them should be well plough
ed this month, and large amounts of ma
nure thoroughly mixed with it. It is
better to have one acre really rich, than
two acres half manured. A well-fed
plant will resist cold and make growth,
when a half-starved one will perish or
remain dormant. In this case what is
needed, is rapid growth when it is still
I cool, and manure should take the place
of heat, as far as it possiby can.?[South
ern Cultivntor.
Fodder, if pulled at all, must not be
taken off too soon or the quality and
weight of the grain will be badly injur
ed. Wait till the grain has begun to
shrink. Alter the fodder is pulled, it is
often rendered nenrly worthless, in show
ery weather, by bad curing. If you can
get one day's good sun, or even less, you
may bundle in small sheaves, stack, and
in a few days pull down again, as the
wcathor permits, and thus bring it
throught, looting tolerably bright even
j in unfavorable weather.
Swccet potatoes must not be forgotten.
Pull up the weeds when you can no
longer use the hoe. Leave no means
untried to make your crop a heavy one.
How To Keep A Situation.
Lay it down as a foundation rule that
you will be "faithful in that which isj
least." Pick up the loose nails, bits of
twine, clean wrapping paper, and put
them in their places, lie ready to throw
in an odd half hour or hour's time, when
it will be an accommodation, and don't
seem to make a merit of it. Do it heart
ily. Though not word be said, bo sure
your employer will make a note of it.
Make yourself indispensable to him, and
he will lose many of the opposite kind
before ho will part with you. Those
young men who watch the time, to see
j tho^very second their working hours arc
up; who leave, no matter what state the
work may bo in, at precisely the instant;
who calculate the uxtw. amount they can
slight their work and yet not get reprov
ed ; who nro lavish of their employer's
goods, will always bo first to receive
notice when times arc dull, and their
services are no longer required. Remcm
bcr you are not a slave Then serve
your employer as a friend : in due time
ho will be a friend to you.
An old lady announced in court at
Atlaida, that she "had no counsel"?
that "Cod was her lawyer." "Ny dear
madam, He does not practice in this
Court," replied the Judge.
On Thursday night, the 1st of August,
the house of T. J. Kogels, a few miles be
low Society Hill, was struck by lightning,
and considerably shivered.
The "Barnwell Sentinel" says: "Mon
day last was the dullest salcday we have"
had for months. But few people were in
town, and but one tract of land was sold
by the Sheriff.
