There is a Time For All Things
Charles Ray came home from
school and said to his brother, 'Gome
Henry, you have stayed in the house
long enough. There is fine skating
on the pond. Get your skates and
let us be off.
'Stop and hear me read this story
in my little magazine,' said Henry.
'I shall do no such thing,' said
Charles. 'We have but an hour to
play on the ice. We must go now if
we would go nt all.'
'But this is B?ch a nice story that I
want you to hear it,' said Henry.
'I will hear it at, the right time, and
in the right place,'said Charles. 'It is
play time now; and I shall not stop
to bear you read, though I am as
fond of that little magazine as you
Henry did not give up his wish;
and sii be began to read aloud.
Then Charles said, 'You nre as bad
as the man who stopped to scold a
hoy at the wrong time.'
'Tell me about it,' said Henry.
'Get your skates and come along,
and you shall hear about it,' said
Charles, *lt is worth hear ng.'
When the boys were out in the coo'
air with their skates, Charles told the
tale thus: 'There was once a boy,
who, in trying to learn to swim, got
beyond his depth in the water, and
saw that he must drown if he could
not get help
I 'Seeing a man on n rock near by,
the boy cried out to him to help him.
But the man began to talk to him
thus: 'My young friend, you did
wrong in going into the water before
you knew how to swim. You did
wrong in coming alone to the beach,
and going out beyond your depth.
You did wrong'?
?O sir 1 sir 1* cried the poor hoy, 'please
help me mom?, nnd scold me after
wards. I shall drown before you get
through your sermon.'
%X)o 'not Bpeak, but hear the voice
of wisdom, my young friend,' said the
man. 'Let this teach you never to
go beyond your depth. If you had
been a good, wise boy,'?
'Here the boy sank.'
'Was the boy drowned?' asked
'No; he was net drowned. A big
wave bore him in, where it was not
over his head; and be soon got on his
feet, and ran up the beach, und put
on his clothes.
'I hope bo gave that man a piece
of his mind,1 said Henry. 'What a
foolish old man he must have been 1'
'I do not know what the boy said,'
paid Charles, '1 only know that the,
story ought to teach us that a thing
that may be_good at one time may not
be so good at another. The man was
to blame in choosing such a time such
as that to preach.'
Bring Jesus Bloro at Home.
The little loving charities ofdaily
life preach loudly for him who went
about doing good. Bring Jesus iuto
your home and your circumstances
more than you have hitherto done.
Illings do not go on well in your
household, perhaps, nor in your cir
cumstances either. You wonder why
it is. Wonder not. It is because
you bring the Lord so little into them.
How can it be otherwise, with Him
so little acknowledged? How can it
be otherwise, when you are not cast
ing upon Him all that pertains to you?
Change your plans. Bring Jesus
more into home, and plans, and du
ties, and circumstances. Live not on
as you hove done, realizing his pre
sence so little. Tho name of Jesus is
no mere fancy. He is a reality. He
is a bosom friend, a tender physician ,
a loving Father, a gracious Saviour
a very present helper. Oh, make
him so to you. Live not outside of
these precious relationships. How
strangely will all things change thon ?
How you will bo lilted up above
things that once frotted you and hung
heavily upou your mind ? How lit
tle will appear the things which men
arc struggling after and panting for
around you 1 You will rise above
them into a new element. Try itl
Bring Je*us more into everything.
Tell him everything. Make him your .
constant friend and companion. Make
him & reality. Only then will you he
gia to know him as you should. Only
then will the uuuttcrahle precious*
of Jesus begin to unfold itself in your
A Good Temperance Tale.
Frcm Ohio comes a capital temper
ance story. Judge Quary, tho
temperance lecturer, in one of his
! efforts hero, got ofT the following:
'All of those who in youth ucquire
a habit of drinking whiskey, at forty
I year* will he total abstainers or
drunkards. No one can use whiskny
for yenrsin moderation. If there is a
person in the audience before ik*j
whose experience disputes this, 1 ot
him make it known. I will account
tor it, or acknowledge that I am misr
A tall, large man arose, and folding
his arms in a dignified manner ac
ross his breast, Raid :
j 'I offer myself as one whoso o wn
j experience contradicts your state*
'Are you a moderate drinker?'
I asked the Judge.
I 'How long have you drunk .in
'And you were never intoxicated?'
'Well,' remarked the Judge, scan
ning his subject close from head to
foot, 'yours is a singular case, yet I
think it is easily accouuted for. I am
reminded by it of a little story. A
colored man, with a loaf of bread and
a flask of whiskey, sat down to dine
by the bank of u clear stream. In.
breaking the bread, some of thol
crumbs dropped into the water. These'
were eagerly seized and eaten'by thjfr
nsh. That circtTuistancc suggesteuto
the colored JY>~n, the idea of dipping
the bread in the whiskey and feeding
it to them. He tried it; it worked
well. Some of the fish ate it, became
drunk, and lay helpless on the water.
By this stroke of strotegy he caught
a great number. But in the stream
was a large fish very unlike the rest.
Ho partook freely of the bread and
whiskey, but with no perceptible
effect; ho was shy of every cQ'oi t of
the colored man to take it.
'He resolved to have it at all haz
ards, that he might learn its name
and nature. He procured a net, and
after much effort caught it, carried it
to a neighbor, and asked his opinion
of the matter. The other surveyed
the wonder for a moment, and then
said, 'I understand this case. That
fi*h is a mullet head; it hasn't got any
'In other words,' added the judge,
'alcohol affects only the brain, and of
course those having none may drink
without injury 1'
The storm of laughter that follows d
drove the moderate drinker suddenly
from the house.
Make a Gooi> Garden this
Yeah.? Let every farmer, who has
not been in the habit of paying much
attention to his garden, begin now and
try to make a good garden this year.
It is the most valuable investment
that can bo made on a farm. Haul
as much manure u^ you can, say 30
or 40 loads on one acre or half acre
of ground. Plow deep and prepare
carefully. It will soon be time now
to plant a number of early vegeta
bles. A hot bed ought now to be
made to sow the seed of early cab
bage, tomatoes, etc?Those not ac
customed to having all vegetables on
their tables can hardly estimate the
comfort to be gotton out of a garden.

Worth of a Pig.
Mr. Robertson, in bis 'Notes on
Africa,' gives the following nnecdoto
of theadmistratiou of justice in that
quarter of tho globe : At Tantum,
the mother of a child was attracted
by its cries, which were caused by a
pig having stolen something from it
of which it had been eating; as was
natural, tho woman struck the pig
with a stick which happened to bo
near. This blow, the owuer of tho
pig. contended, caused its death. The
affair, however, remained many yeais
unnoticed, but it was at length
brought forward, and urged with
such vigor that many persons were
involved iu it who were not born at
fhe time tho transaction took place.
As tho animal wiw a female, tbo
damages were calculated at a higher
rate, and the result was that every
one connected by the most distant
affinity with the unhappy mother, to
tho number of thirty-two, husband,
children and all that were most dear,
were sold as a remuneration for the
loss of a pig. The avarice of tho
chiefs, who received a proportion of
the spoil, wns only restrained when
there was nothing more to be dispos
ed of. Tho same monstrous practice
is adopted ou the loss of fowls, aud
the claims calculated in the same
way. Whole families bavo been sold
for a single chicken.
An Essay on Woman.
The undomesticated editor of the
Newport Local thus relates his matri
monial experience: "Awoman is a
mighty handy thing to have about
the house. Shedoean'tcost any more
to keep than you'll give her, end
she'll take a great interest in you. If
you go out at night, sho'U be awake
when you get home, and then she'll
tell you about yourself, and more too.
<jf course sin will know where you
^Jfyo "tieeTT anff \v!ia,rkepL you out siT
late, aud will toll you; yet right after
she gets through telling you that, sbo
will ask you where you have beeu
and what kept you out so late. And
after you tell her ehe won't believe
you; you musn't mind that; and if
after going to bed she says sbo hasn't
closed ber eyes the whole night, and
then keeps up the matiuee two hours
longer and won't go to sleep when she
has a chance, you musn't mind that
either; it's her nature.
It seems to be the ambition of all
young wives, to look well when any
one calls. The other day a south
side bride he ird a ring at the front
door. The maid was on t and she
rushed up stairs to "fix up" a little
before admitting the caller. There
was a moment of lightning work bo
fore the dressing ense. Quicker than
it takes to tell it a ribbon was fasten
ed at her throat, a flower stabbed
into her hair, a flash of powder on
her face, nnd she was at the door, all
smiles and blushes. The gentleman
snid he had walked from Memphis,
nnd couldn't remember that he had
tasted food since he left Cincinnati.?

The "Brownest" Wedding.?
The brownest wedding we have beard
of took place in Tuscaloosa a fow
days ago. The groom and bride wcro
Mr. Brown and Miss Minnie Brown,
and tho ceremony was performed by
Rev. John Brown, and the reception
was given by Mr. Henry Brown.
Miss Minnie Brown has brown eyes
and was attired in brown aitfrou$et
while Mr. David Brown was likowiso
j dressed iu a brown suit. Altogether,
the occasion was a brown affair, and
the Gazette of Oak City in extending
congratulations to Mr. Brown confi
dently expresses a hope that the
"namo of Brown may ever be perpe
tuated."?Dccatua (A/a.) Neics.

The Jute Industry.
A Northern View of One op the
Healthy Signs in South
[From the Nation.]
The derangemeut of industrial and
social relations in South Carolina
canned by secession nnd emancipation
was considerably mitigated by the
development of the great phosphate
interest, aud now, os if to make the
return to a healthier political condi
tion, the planting nnd manuracfure
of jute begin to assume importance.
It has been found that tho home of
the sea island cotton is also fitted for
the profitable culture oi jute, and the
Charleston Bagging Manufacturing
Company has begun to open subscrip
tions with a view to starting
a mill which will employ
sixty hands, of whom only
eight will be men. The experiments
made with the plant in the neighbor ?
ing States of Georgia aud Florida, a*
well as iu Louisiana and Texas, a 11
point to the ultimate success of this
new industry, already more extended
than those who have given no atten
tion to tho subject might suppose.
Tho report of the commissioner of
agriculture for 1876 contains an
e! aba rate paper on jute, by Prof. S.
Watcrhouse, of Washington (St.
Louis) University wh? has studied its
cultivation in Iudia; aud as the ear
liest plantings in the United States
take place in Apr'l, there is time for
all, who wish to inform themselves, to
do so. Some of tho stalks grown in
the States named reached the height
of fifteen feet; the yield was in several
cases at the rate of 3,500 pounds to
the acre, and the fibre in s^me inst
ances was judged superior to the
Indian. The seed, too, has been im
proved, and is one-sixth heavier than
that of India. Many branches of
manufacture wjiioh^, nojj. .use jsttfr
either sparingly or not at all, would
bo stimulated to use it.freely, not
only for bagging and baling,but for
paper and ail sorts of textile fabrics
from carpets down, as the example of
Dundee has so well taught us. A
product which has become the fourth
staple in the exports of India, yield
ing precedence only to cotton, opium
and rice, may easily take a cora
| mensurate rank with us. We appear
to have in abundance the hot and
j moist climate and good soil it afiects,
and wo certainly have the ingenuity
I to compete by machinery with the
crude and cheap labor of India or the
skilled labor of Scotland. We wish
success to the Charleston enterprise.
Be and continue poor young man, |
while others around you grow rich by
fraud and dishonesty; bear the paia
of defeated hopes, while others gain
tho accomplishment of theirs by flat
tery; forego the gracious pressure of
the hand, for which others cringe and
crawl. Wrap yourself in your own
virtue, and seek a friend and your
daily bread. If you have in such a
course grown gray with unblemished
honor, bless God and die.
