This was sung in his usual man iecr, which is of such world-wide fame, it would be useless for my pen to add its faint praise. Never before having been present it their meetin gs, we were oil the qui viJe until Mr. Moody annoinlll ced his text, whichl lie did in these words: "WVe have for our text to-night two .men, one a Ph:arisee, the otiler a Publican," and without ftrther ado commenced his plain talk to the people. For the first fifteen mlinutes it seemls as thouh: ailmnost anybody could talk like that but nat length, having carried his hea'trers with hinm, lie began to close in on thenm gradu'ily, firmly and from which there was no retreat. His words seemed to take hold of his hearers until they fo.med a part of their very being. When lie told a heart touchhnilrg incident, we found our eyes mois tcning and looked albout us, only to find ourseives surrounded by others thus visibly affected.

Yes I'm1 Mrs. "now, an editors wife. I wel! i:emember the (iuy that Mr. Snow ask ed ime to becoue his wife. I confess I liked Mr. Snow, and thinking it would be a flue thing to be the wife of an editor. I said "'Yes" as prett as I knew how, and I became ,Mrs. Snow. I have seen ten years of mar ried life, and find my husband to be an amiable good-natured man. .le always spends his evenings at houii, and is in that respect a model uIauL ; bult lie always br)inglls a pile of exchanges, which is only limited by the leng-th of his arm, and reads while I patch the knees and elbows of his panlta lool and coat. One evening, after we had had a Quaker meet!ing of ani hour', length. I brok, time stillness by asking : "'Mr. Snow, did you order that coal I spoke to you about? " ' "What did you say, my dear? " he asked after a momeltt's silence. "'DIid you order that coal I spol;e to you about? " " Itndeed, my dear, I'm sorry, but I forgot all aboutt it. Ii shall come to-morrow." Another hiiur's silence, which is relieved by the baby's crying, and rather liki~g a noise of that sort I made no effort to quiet hlim. "My dlear," says Mr. Snow. after lie had cried a minute or so, "you had better give the baby some catnip tea to quiet him ; he troubles inc." 'I'The baby is still ! Another .hour passes without a breath of noise. Becoming tired, I take a lamp and retire for the night, leav ing Mr. Snow so engaged with his papers that he does not see me leave the room. T'oward midnight he comes to bed, and just as he has fallen asleep the baby takes a no. tion to cry again. I rise as quietly as possi ble and try to still. luim. Then another baby begins to scream at the top of his lungs. There is no course but to wake 1Mr. Snow, and so I say: "Mr. Snow ! Mr. Snow I " 'The third time he starts up and cries, "Wlhat, Tal, more copy?" JUST LIKE A MAN. Now, Leander, mily dear, I want you to be sure an(l not forget to bring tliese few things when you come down to-night, said the young wife, just before the kiss and "good bye" at the Sumnmer hotel, in the morning, as the gentlemen were starting for the city. "Certainly not, my love." And this is the way the bill ran : 1--Two yards of blue barege. 2--Three yards of Hamburg edgings. 3--My new braid from the hair store. 4-H-alf dollar's worth of Nainsook. 5--Box pearls powder from my upper drawer. 0--"Modern Minister" from Loring's Li brary. Arriving in town, he forgot all about the list ti'l late in the afternoon, and then coldn't find it in any of his pockets ; but hadn't lihe read it over; and didn't he recol lect it all? Of course lie did, and this is what lie brought home to his expectant wife : 1--I wo heads of blue cabbage. 2-Three yards of handsome netting (mosquito.) 3-Some blue braid. 4-Half dollar's worth canned soup. 5--Box seidlitz powders and pair of draw ers. C-Lorin said lie hadn't got any such book as "The .Mug and Cannister" in the iibr. r. Exclamation on receiving the above: "O, Leander, Leander, you must have been di ning at that horrid club again, or you couldn't have made such a mistake." . .... ... tin,,- -...lC - - I- .. ... .. . .. It once happenpd to me to ask an elonrly French geintleman of the most exquisite manners to pay a1ny attention she might need to a .charming young lady who was intending to travel by the same train from London to paris. . M. de - wrote suchi a hrilliant little note in reply that I was tenip ted to preserve it as an autograph ; and I observe that, after a profusion of thanks, lie assured me Ihe should be "trop heetnaeux de se m9et/ti'e au service'" of imy youngf fl-end. Practically, as I afterward learned, 3M. de - did make himself quite delightful, till, unluckily, on arriving at Boulogne, it ap peared that there was some imbroglio about Miss-'s luggage, and she was in a serious diticnulty. Neebless to say, on such an oc casion the intervention of a French gentle man with a rit)ho at his button-hole would have been of the greatest possible service, but to render it M. (d - would have beeni obliged to mnits the train to Paris; and this was a sacrifice for which his politeness was by no means prepared. Expressing himcelt as utterly au dceespoir, he took his seat, and was whirled away, leaving my poor young triend alone on the platform to fight hert battles as best she might with the impracti cable oflicials. The results might have been :nlnoying had not a homely English stran ger stepped in and proffered his aid ; and, having recovered the missing property, sirs p!ly liftedt his hat and escaped from the ex )ressions of gratitude. In this little anecdote I think lies a compendium of the experience of hundreds of ladies on their travels. The genmiic and self-sacrifici;ing kindness of English and American gentleman toward wminen affords almost a ludicrous contrast to the florid politeness, compatible with ev .ery degree of seltishness, usually exhibited by men of other European na:tioas.-Con tenrcorarV Reietw. 2 .......11.--pl0--,,I. -. A SAFE MAN. That man who is scrupulously polite and respectful in public but habitually saves coarse manners and vulgar language for his own wife an dauglhters is no gentleman. iHe is only an impostor. The young mant who oils his hair, put sweet oders on his handkerchief, and( bows with charming ele 'aunce to Miss .Arabella Spriggins and her lady friends, and goes home to sneer at his mother and treat her with familiar discour tesy is a pinchbeck imitation of a gentleman. (Genuine good manners and gentle breed ing should begin at home. As a rule, the men who are the most trusted are the'best men at home. When a man opens his front gate only to meet his wife's smiling face at the door, rad'ant with pleasure, and hear the shout from the eager children, "papa is coming," it is safe a:s a rule to h.rid money to that man. Hie is honest and will repay It if Zi, can.-Rural HIome. A TrpU woman honors her duties and de lights in her home. She knows what por tion of tile's work'is naturally assigned to her by the fitness of things and the best di vision of labor, and she does it, linding in the exact performance of those which na ture and custom have laid on both her ploce and her pride. She does not disdain to examine closely her grocer's book and her butcher's bill. She does not think the keys of the store-room her symbol of degra dation, nor hold the nice condition of the linen something below her dignity to en sure. Sometimes she even undertakes that kind of dleft embroidery known as darning, and does not leave all to the housemaid, whose fingers are hard and her needles sure to be large. A stingy husband threw all the blame of the lawlessness of his children in company by saying wife always "'gives them their own way." "Poor things," was her prompt reply, " its all I have to give them." GOLDEN SHEAVES. W hat are we sent on earth fbr?
