The Golden Side.
There is many a rest in the road of life,
If we ouly would stop to take it;
And-many a tone IVoni the better l.iud,
If the querulous he irt would make it !
To the sunuy soul, that is l'uil en hope,
And whose beautnul trust ne'er laileth,
The grass is jrreeu and the llow.rs bright,
Though the wintry ttorm j)revaileth.
Better to hope though the clouds hang low,
And to keep the eye still lifted;
For the sweet blue sky will soon peep through,
When the ominous clouds are lilted !
There was never a night without a day,
Or an evening without a morning;
And the darkest hour, as the proverb goes,
la the hour before the dawning.
There is many a gem iu the path of life,
Which we pass iu our idle pleasure,
That is richer far than the feweled crown,
Or the miser's hoarded treasure;
It may be the love of a little child,
Or a mother's prayers to Heaven,
Or only a beggar s grateful thanks
For a cup of water given.
Better to weave in the web of life
A bright and golden filling
And to do God's will with a readv heart,
And hands that are swift and willing,
Than t5 suap the delicate minute, threads
Of our curious lives asunder;
And then blame Heaven fur the tangled ends,
And sit and grieve and wonder.
A negro named Ephe, who was a regular at
tendant at church, was proud ot his Ruble learn
ing. He was sawing wood one day, while his
masters sou, a laa ot about twelve years, was
looking on, and now and then asked questions.
Whirdi "4" tho OTuKtloe ill v-mi lllrf IiKvf
asked he of Ephe.
"1 likes Ramson, says r.idie ; "lie was so
Etrong, and piled up deni wicked folks so."
i:Why, Ephe," said the boy, '-tsamsou was not
one of the apostles.'
Ephe put down his saw, looked at the young
Bter a moment in amazement, and then asked him,
with an air of triumph :
'Look here, white boy, how old are you?"
"Twelve."'
"Well,"l'se forty; now, who ought to know
beet, I ax you dat ?

Hospitality Among Lions.
Chenier, in his book on "Morocco," relates
tbig: "J. have been assured that a Brebe who
Went to Luut the lion, having proceeded far into
a forest, happened to meet with two Irons' whelps
that came to caress him. The hunter stopped
with the little animals, and, waiting for the com
ing of the sire or the dam. cook out his breaklast
and gave them a part, The lioness arrived, un-
perceived by the huntsman, so that he had not
time, or perhaps wanted the courage, to take his
gun. After having for some time looked at the
man who was feasting her young, the lioness
went away, and soon after returned, bearing a
sheep, which she laid at the huntsman's feet.
Thus become one of the family, he took this oc
casion of making a good meal, skinned the sheep,
made a fire and roasted a part, giving the en
trails to the young. The lion came also, and. as
if respecting"thc rights -of hospitality, showed no
tokens of ferocity. Their guest, having finished
his provisions, returned the next day, and came
to the resolution never more to kill those animals,
the noble renerosity of which he had so fully
proved. He caressed the whelps at taking leave
oi them, and the dam and the sire accompanieu
him till he was safely out of the forest.

If you need anything of the kind, you will en
courage home industry by purchasing one of our
Machines.
It is easy to operate, occupies a small space
and
does not injure articles to be washed. It
and substantial, and dees its work in a short time.
It is an actual improvement on others of similar out
side appearance.
In the North State AVashing Machine the Clothes
are placed in hot suds and while thus immersed with
the air excluded, tl : Machine is operated, giving the
Garments a rolling, rubbing pressure, and at the
same time they receive the solvent power of the soap.
The Clothes ai ot impaired by the use of this
Machine. You can make money by saving the wear
and tear which your Clothes are subjected to by
washing and beating in the old way.
This Machine gives the advantage of using boiling
suds and of confining the steam. It cau be worked
sitting or standing. It is cheap. The price of it
puts it within reach of nearly every family, and pays
its cost back in the saving of garments.
