Oh, can we gee or can we hear
The sireHin of Being flowing clear,
That day by day and your by year,
lu lfsgi r being swill appear f
. Giiil hidclh all Himself most dread,
lu light and silence garmented.
The shining duys His records keep j
The night His scum-re,! gpli-ndors reap ;
His crystal chamber is the deep ;
His seit'-thrnwii simile crentelh sleep.
Hills at his loueh i;ivc Home for Unme;
': The sea's sofl thunders roll Ilia uume.
lie walks the viewless waves of nlr;
Tiie wild beasts, lisieninir in ihcir lair,
Willi sinking birds His bounty share,
And all things living crowd His care.
He knowellt ticitlier great no small
Whose All is Love, whose Love is AH !
Pair round His Icet the flocks repose;
He breathes, and desvrl springs unclose;
The mountain drops Us vrowu of snows t
The wilderness reveuls lis rose;
Even the senseless rock Is drest
For Joy of Him in mot-gy vest.
lie is not to these mortal eyes,
And yet lie the glad Earth cries
Exulting with exultant skies;
UeUl the thankful Spirit sighs,
Nor darkening space divides lor Him
The sous of meu from Seraphim,
Unseen He breaks the dully bread,
Wherewith our living souls uro led ;
We know not when lie litis our head,
Nor how I ho heart is comforted.
We only kuow the cloud of sin
From Ilia pure presence shuts us in.
Ho speaks our hearts wilhln us burn;
In their unrest we slowly learn
The8weet constraint of our relurn
To Love that for its own doth yearn.
From Him we came to Ilitn wego;
Lile ebbs for Lite's Eternal Flow.

lots of music in my trunk. 'f
"But you are only a farmer's wife,

when we were married, that, you were

"So I did, John. 1 don't want finery.

John. Don't bcowI up your face so. J

There, kiss me and forget it. f am nice
ly rested now, aud I'll get your tea in
ten minutes." ,
John put her down with a very tender
kiss, and tell into a deep reverie.
Linallivers had been a district school
teacher in Scottslield just four months,
when John lleyimlds offered her his
hand and heart. bhe was an orphan
from infancy, but her father's sister had
adopted -and educated ber in a life ol
luxury, aud died without altering a
iuuub yvurs uciure, leaving ner entire for
tune to a charity asylum, Lina, left
alone, thanklully accepted the position ot
country school teacher procured for her
by some friends, and was thinking lie.
a hard burden when John came to
brighten it. She gave her whole gentle
little heart into his keeping at once, ap-
jn-i;iiiiiiiH in. meiriuu value Ins Honest,
true heart, his frank nature, his slerlino
good qualities, and looking with pro
found admiration upon his tall, strong
trame aud handsome face. )
It a? a perlect love-match, for John
lairly worshipped the dainty, relined lit
tle beauty lie had married ; and having
married her, he took her to his home aud
iu all ignorance proceeded to kill her.
There was no blame to be laid upon
him. Living in the old farm-housp,
where he had spent his entire life, the
one ambition of his heart was to own
land, stock, barns, add a model farm.
He had seen his mother cook, churn,
teed poultry aud drudge all her lile, and
it Lina made odd mistakes she put a
willing heart into her work, and soon
conquered its difficulties. Surely, he
thought, it was an easier life to be mis
tress of his home, with the Stanley farm
in prospect, than to toil over stupid

It was an unknown world to John,
where his wife's memory lingered as she
scoured tins, strained milk and cooked
huge dishes for the farm hands. He
would have thought it wicked waste, if
not positive insanity, to draw lrom the
bank his hard-earned savings to invest

sharply, telling herself that she was un

And t"o the loving little woman toiled

John Edwards, coming home to his ton,
louna lying upon the kitchen floor a lit

Lina clapped her hnnda when John
asked her it shn would like to spend a
week in New York, and really seemed
to draw in new lile lrom the very idea.
It was delicious to see John's whip
open eyes as he entered the parlor of

the bed-room, whose beauties were quite
"The best room," he had told the land
lady, and Lina could not repress a cry ol
delight at the vista ot a cosy sitting,

thought gratefully, refused her nothing
"How lucky I brought some of my
old dresses 1" Lina thought. "I have
not worn therir since I was a school
marm. Fancy Airs. Edwards scrubbing
the floor in this dress!"
Ji-hii rubbed his eyes and pinched
himself as a little figure sailed into the
sitting-room, made him a sweeping court
esy, and went to the piano.
Was that the little woman who had
worn prints und stiu-bonnets so lon?
The fair hair was fashionably dressed
and b;iuds of blue velvet looped the
golden curls. .Iresa ol blue silk, with
softest lace trimmings aud ornaments ol
pearls, had certainly made a la.ly of Li
na. The piano was yielding its most be
witching tones to the skilled little fin
gers, and John's bewilderment was
complete, when a voice of exquisite
sweet m. 88, though not powerful, began
Only one song, full of thrills and qua

"John' darling," she said, "hold mo

fit to marry such a dainty bird ! But I
loved you, little one."
"And I love you, John, rough old
John ! Let me sing again. 1 am very
happy to-day, my husband."
But no wonderful thrill rilled tho room
now. In a clear, pure voice, full of ex
pression, Liua sang,
" I kuow Unit my Redeemer llvntli "
Every word full like hoi tears on
poor John's heart, until as the last chord
trembled upon the air, Lina turned to
unn, Bit-etching out her arms :
" Take me iu your arms, Johnl"
He took her tenderly to the room she
had quitted so gaily, and replaced her
finery by a white wrapper, whose lace
trimmings looked like lairy-work to his

with a little sigh of enure content, Lina

Comments upon John's folly and ii.

men, shaking their heads, prophesied

But John was as much astonisned as
any of them, when, alter a few years, he
found the farm yielding him a largor' in

Mr. Editor It is now thirty-four years since
the township of Ashtabula was divided Ihe
northern portion retaining its name aud the
southern poriion taking the name of Ply
mouth. The object of the petitioners for the
division of the towntbip was, first, to build up
a town, and thereby enhance the value ol
their property. There were other important
reasons, which the writer need not now men
tiou. The fond hopes of the petitioners have
never been realized, and never can be, for it
may now be lakeu for rauted that no consid
erable place can be built up within several
miles of Ashtabula. Ashtabula has now three
railroads and is destined to be a great town.
The Ashtabula & Jamestown Branch brings
the people of Plymouth much nearer to Ash
tabula than before, and it is now believed that
it Is for the interest of the two townships to
be reunited, and Tor that purpose and to that
end a petition will be presented to the Com
missioners of Ashtabula county. The people
of Plymouth go to Ashtabula to do their bus
iness, and there too, they gj for pleasure. We
are one people in fact, let us be so iu form.

has put forth a sensible protest against
a very pernicious custom, whicii rarely
recievi'S sufficient attention either from
the medical profession or from the pub-,

working classes make tea a principal ar
ticle of diet instead of an occasional bev
erage; they drink It several times a day,
and the result is a lamentable amount of
sickness: ibis i no doubt the case, and
as Dr. Alrige remarks, a portion of the
reforming zeal which keeps up such a
lively warfare . against intoxicating
drinks, might advantageously be divert
ed to tbe repression of this very serious
evil of tea-tippling among the poorer
classes; Tea, in anything beyond mod

capable of ruining the digestion, of en
feebling and disordering the heart's ac

gave the usual sign that Le wanted some

widow waited for what was further tb

"Well, there I Mr. Smith, youcould'nt
