rve sought Thee where the incense baried
Beneath cathedral arches dim,
And high within the fabled Heaven,
Enthroned above Thy seraphim.
I've sought Thee through the binding
Wherewith the creedsmen hide Thy
All cold within the.misty shroud
It lacked for me the saving gr.ace.
I put aside the veiling years,
Hba baffling in their cloudy light,
And far above my binding fears
I seek to see the Lord aright.
All safe, from Doubt's uprising flood.
I now with undimmed vision secn,
No l1,only grandeur of the God
T'hy simple majesty as man.
What "omfort to the souls that bleed
Is that far (o;,d, unknown, unseen;
But near in every human need,
both comle the Christ, the Nazarene.
t . lilrhnim in a lonely land,
Al, ne th',iu wandtreod up and down;
Mn, ff1,ll ,w,'d, fit thy he.ling hand,
But no muan ever saw Thy crown.
rThou g:avet joy :all men hold dear,
The marvel of thy gift to prove,
'Ie hom le that holds men safe from fear.
The child's sweet grace and woman's
Thou givcnt now in dearth and loss
Thy help, that we all good may gaina
The strength that bhears another s crnea
The love that soothes another's lain.
'Tis not the thonght that Jesus died
That comfort to lmy heart doth give;
iut. wmore than all the world beside,
Th.at ever more the Christ doth live.

T"lhI're is sone satisfaction in the re
Ihlction that a disagreeable comnmn
nicatitn that troubles you, is as like
Iv to be a falsehood as to be truth;
but there are people upon the list
of every person's acquaintance,
whom you ,know to be incapable of
tellin:g a lie, yet they always manage
to torture your heart by some dis
, agreeable truth. One can meet a
false ane'nusation, or implied false
ltud, I with the silent contempt it
deserves, and be none the worse for
its having been uttered.
But how can onll manage those
Sterrible p~ploe who wear the m _ask
of friendship to torture your life out
of your very heart?
Th(y come to youn when you are
a't peace w ith all the world, and
yoursel f in particular, and they chat
pleasantly of the weather, the news,
and every little item of mutual in
te rest, for awhile, but somnohow, in
the, most natural way, (how you are
never able to remember) they intro
duce the unwelcome subject that is
Ito ecave such a sting behind them
after they are gonie. It may be
some little, cruel thing one of your
friends has said about you; or it
may be no1ething vaguely hinted
at, not explained, but anyhow, that
truthful, fran, open-hearted friend.?
"doesn't believe a single word of it;

absurd folks can be," Arc., &c,-

Philosophers may tell us to be
above noticing these little things
that trouble us; but I know it to be
a fact that cruel words will leave a
heartache, in spite of the most
heroic resolutions to care nothing
for them! We may say we "don't
care" what people say or think of
us, and perhaps we have moments
when we really "don't care;" but
when we are alone, thinking o'er
the peat and present, and it may be
looking forward to the futare we
do care!
We cmannot help it; if oorhuter
ars-worthy a tre, earnest plrpee
we do ease I the opiion of owr
fellow- tures; and bitter words
leave a sting!
I could forgive the person who
had misjudged me, and perhaps said
unkind things about me, and love
him just as well after all was ex
plained, but the person who comes
to me, repeating the unkind re
mark, I could not, and would not
We readily find excuse for a friend
who, misunderstanding our motives,
censures our actions, to regret it
afterward; but what excuse can
there be for the mischief-making
meddler who comes to us repeating
what a friend has said, in a hasty
moment? Does that person think
to prove to us that the true friend
is the one who brings the bones
from the table of scandal to lay at
our feet? Indeed, the dead and
buried sages of the past have left us
this proverb: "The dog that brings
a bone will carry one." And a true
friend will not repeat anything to
wound the feelings of another, un
less, by so doing the benefit to the
wounded heart is apparent and un
Deliberation and reSection have
established in my mind the belief
that it is not our friends who repeat
to ns the unkind remarks others
may make about us, or our actions.
I have my theory of true, pure
friendship, but there are so few
hearts capable of appreciating real
sentiment, in this whirling, busy,
restlesi, age of the world, that I
shrink from the explanation of the
tender theory. Yet, it is not safe
to trust wha:t yon have not proved.

It is indeed hard to perform
thankless tasks under the rod of
severity and haughty, wicked n'an
created pride, which never "stoops
to words of sympthy and enconr
agement to the toiler," but yet
stoops to meaness and oppreuion a
truly noble slt abor.
It eosts so little to be kind, and
bdaga such rich reward that it is
strange so few invest. "If you
please" and "thank you" are chari
ly bestowed, except in soeiety where
people assume an exterior polished
up for the occasion.
There is a class, however, who
never speak harshly to inferiors in
mind, pocket or position; they are
the real gentlemen and ladies who
bless the world. Genuine people
of refinment who, through years of
influences have attained a standard
where they do niot fear to treat
every body with a gentle kindness
and a degree of familiarity which
encourages the humblest creature

people who are most severe with
