Al that moment I heard a rap at the door. I could not rise to obey the sum mons. 1 felt that my heart was breaking. Bjt the door slowly oponed ; and Mr. Webster stood before me. He hsd come home on a vis it, snd, without knowing any thing of our sor rows, he rode over to see and embrace his ear ly friend. What was his surprise io find him thus I And when the story of our troublo had been told, when he hsd sssured himself that hia long-cheriihed friend had but a few more hours to live, he ibi down and went. "Then he asked in see the corpse of his lit tle pel, who, when he last visited us, sat upon hit knoe snd played with his watch. Aa he rose to leave the bed, my husband ssid in a hisper: 'Fetch her to ine, ihat 1 too may look upon that sweet fsce once more." We placed the beautiful form beside the bed. and standing near it gave ourselves up in uncon trollable gneT. When able to command his voice, Mr. W. said: "Let ui pray." And kneeling there, beside the dying and the dead, he pr yed as none but a Christain can piny. Sure I am that a prayer so earnest, so full of faith and hope in the Redeemer, was never poured forth from the lips of an infidel. "Gladly would he have stopped with u through the night. Bui business forbade his sisy. He left us, and ss he grasped for the last lime the hand of hia dying friend, those pale features were lighted up with a smile of hop, such as they had not worn for many s day. Tha troubled spirit wai at rest, for ihe as surance had been given thai the widow should be provided for her in her affliction. "My hiisbund died the next day. I law no more of the hard-hearted creditor, and the house remained unsold. I still occupy ii, and ihe room where Mr. Webster kneeled in prayer is to me a sacred place." E. W. A.

Dr. Fither, of Boston, relates, in a late number of the Medical Jour nal, a case in which a severe snack of croup was cured by the application of sponges wrung out of hot water to the throat together with wa ter treatment, which he describes as follows: "Soon after making the first application of sponges to the throat, I wrapped the child in a woolen blanket, wrung nut in warm water, a a substitute for a warm bath, and gave twenty drops of the wine of antimony in a little sweet ened water, which she swallowed with diffi'-ul-ty. I persevered in the application of the hot. moist sponge for an hour, w hen ihe child was to much relieved thai I ventured to leavo it. "These application! were ccminiieil through the iiighi, and in the morning '.he child was well." It will never do to trifle with this terrible dis ease. The quicker thn remedies are applied ihe better. Instead of antimony, we would re commend small quantitiea of alumq water giv en every ten or fifteen minutes.
