TH» FAIREST ALWAYS THE RAREST. Thus it is all over the earth ! That which we call the fairest And prize for its surpassing worth, Is always rarest. Iron is heaped in mountain piles, And gluts the laggard forges; But gold flukes gleam in dim del And lonely gorges. The snowy marble flecks the land With heaped and rounded ledges, But diamonds hide beneath the sand Tkcir starry edges. "Do you," said Fannie, t'other day, In earnest love me as you say? Or are those tender words applied Alike to fifty girls beside?" Dear cruel girl," cried I, "forbear; For by those eyes, those lips I swear." She stopped me, as the oath I took. And cried, "You've sworn, now Art«« Me book!" For the Middletown TranscrijJ. Early Impressions. ** As the twig is bent so the tree in clines," is an old, but a true adage. The mind in infancy is thought to be a great blank upon which no scrawl or blot can be seen, except those inherent passions and principles properly called God's plan tings. If this be true, the fact that early impressions are the most lasting becomes self evident. This wo know, that those things that transpired so soon tu memory »hewed symptoms of activity, are so in delibly fixed upon our minds, that the thousand and other things passing around us daily are almost forgotten, whilst they fresh as but yesterday. In a moment our thoughts fiy buck to the time when played under the spreading form of the old oak tree, or in boyish gleo skimmed the smooth waters of the pond close by with pebbles, watching the troubled face, uoting the myriads of little following one another, widening and spreading until lost upon tho shore. The countenances of our early play mates arc mirrored upon our hearts, al most to the exclusion of those with whom wo are iu daily intercourse. Tho merry laugh of childhood still rings in our ears with freshness, and we live over and ngain those bright and sunny days of inne cency. Those majestic air castles tow ering high, our youthful aspirations, our longings to bo men, our desires to be use ful, our likes aud dislikes, all rise before us as transactions of but yesterday. The mother who ought and does derstand human nature, especially in in fantile development, knows the full force of the application of that early training of Her diild for future usefulness, that awaits it but a short distance down the road of time. Whilst tho father is en gaged in bis daily occupation for tlie tcnanco of those fondly united to him by the ties of consanguinity, the mother is pouring into her child's ears life lessons, lining that blank with pure sentences to stand foremost in its thoughts. How of ten do our memories bring in sweet re view the moments spent at our mother's knees, as we lisped that beautiful and fa miliar prayer uttered by our Savior, and heard her voice in smothering accents of Amen to our petitions, to a throne of grace, uttered with a heart preponder *»g between hope and fear ; fear lest some rude hand might erase those bright lines and stamp their places with rude char acters, hope that the feeble prayer of *• lead us not into temptation" may be jMMwercd, and tlie lessons taught in sin cerity may have the great and crowning eucccss for which they were iuteuded. Yet at the close of each day of care, be fore wo lie upon our couches, as in days of early years, we kneel before God in hutnble supplication as taught us by our mothers. How often do we go back to the time when arouud the hearth we sat— US Bur waves, over SU8 1 Wc are all here ! Father, Mother, Sister Brother, All who hold each other dear. Each chair is filled—we're all at home — And sang that beautiful song of " Hea ven sweet Heaven," until iu imagination we were within those pearly gates, listen ing to the melodious strains of angels cchoning the same sweet music, and yet we often find ourselves humming that song of long ago with all the youthful fer vor once repeated. If we are tempted to forsake the truth, our mother's early instructions of ' * my child resist temptation and cleave to the right," souuds in our ears with irresistible force. If the spirit of revenge arises, our father's solemn teachings of "my child forgive as you expect to be forgiven," crushes that spirit of revenge and saves us from sin. Thus from day to day, year to year, as tho cares of life increase, tho burdens of troubles, tho heart-aches, and gmins grow irksome and heavy, those early impressions keep our wavering feet in the paths of rectitude, and eventually stamp our destinies. Then despair not father, though your soil may seem to be wayward and incline towards those things that bring sorrow, for the instruction imparted to him in youth is silently at work, and your labors will be crowned with blessed fruit here after. Weep not fond mother over tho fvorldliness of your daughter, the time is £iot Ux distant wlicu dispassionate thought and meditation will bring those sweet les sons of tender girlhood into a restraining Ç ower 4o oa*#e her to stop, think and ac».
