STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE.
an amateur ehortcake maker to ■
Out vor/ skillful, .hertcake eater.
Of all the rich dainties of the epicure's dreaming,
Your trout and your game may the appetite
pall,
But for three times a day, and a lunch intervening,
A strawberry shortcake is better than all.
And give me a wife that knows how to make it,
(Or If willing to learn, that might
well.)
Now the way that the housewife should make it
and bake it,
To assist the unlearned, I am going to tell^
Stir Trtfo your flour some cream rich and golden ;
No servant should do it, no hand but your own ;
Bake quickly, and when it is out of the oven,
Cut open und butter us soon as 'tis done.
Then heap on your berries. How fragrant the
odor,
As crushed with sugar they lie 'neath your
hand !
It may not be "food for the gods," but no mortal
, A piece of this strawberry cake could with
stand.

Poverty in Ute Pnrnonnge.
The following remarks from the pen of
Dr. Guthrie are recommended to the con
sideration of our readers :
The calamity which I stand in dread of,
and which, next to the withdrawal of the
divine blessing, is the greatest a Church
can suffer, is that the rising talent, genius,
and energy of our country mav leave the
ministry of the Gospel for other profes
"A scandalous maintenance,"
Mathew Henry says, "makes a scandalous
ministry." And I will give another,
equally true : "The poverty of the par
sonage will develop itself in the poverty of
the pulpit." I have no doubt about it.
Genteel poverty, to which some ministers
are doomed, is one of the great evils under
the sun. To place a man in circumstances
where lie is expected to be generous and
hospitable, to open bis hand as wide
as his heart to the poor, to give his family
a good education, to bring them up in
what is called genteel life, and to deny
him the means of doing so, is enough, but
for the hope of heaven, to embitter his
istencc.
In the dread of debt ; in many daily
mortifications—meeting, perhaps, some old
acquaintance, whom he dared not ask to
his table, lest bis prudent wife should
frown upon his extravagauce ; iu harrass
ing fears what shall become of his wife and
chidren when his head lies in the grave ;
a . n . ia . n . cu l fc,vafcc d mind nnd delicate
sibilities has trials to bear more painful
than the privations of the poor.
It is a bitter cup, and my heart bleeds
for brethren who have never told their
sorrows, coucenling under their cloak the
fox that knaws at their vitals.

A writer to the New York Express, un
der date of June 20, refers in glowiug
terms to the beauties of that now famous
locality. He writes :

the very heart of the city, almost under
the walls of the Tabernacle—and there
ripple innumerable little rills through the
streets, making happy the grass, and the
trees, and vegetation of all kinds, while
overhead are the " Nevadas," the snowy
hills tempering the hot rays of the now
burning sun, if not by therinometrical
admeasurement, by all the inspirations of
the age and the delusions of the imagina

Gutta-Percha.
Gutta means the gum or juice of a plant,
' percha means the particular tree from
which this gum is procured.
This gum is contained in the sap and
milky juices of the tree. The way in
which the gutta, or gum, is obtained is
by cutting down the trees, aud ringing
tlip bark at the distance of from ten to
fifteen inches apart, aud placing a cocoa
nut shell under the fallen trunk of the tree
to leccivc the hardened sap that oozes out
upon every incision. After the
fend
sap in
collected, it is boiled to separate the gum
from the water. When the gum haa be
come well softened by boiling, it is rolled
out in thin sheets, aud all impurities
picked or rubbed off.
This gum is remarkable for the ease
with which it may bo manufactured. By
immersing it for a few minutes in hot wa
ter, it becomes soft nnd plastic, and may
be moulded to any form, which it retains
upon cooling. This was discovered by
the inhabitants of the Malaysian Islnnds,
who manufactured it into various domestic
articles, some of which were buckets, tubs,
basins, jugs, and Bhoes.
Tho gutta-percha tree is a native of the
Malaysian Islands and the neighboring
countries, wlierj it attains the h i^ht of
from sixty to seventy feet, aud from two
to four foot in diameter.

The stomach, from a variety of causes such as

very apt to have its functions deranged. The
