Neve Cattle, April 6th , 1876. A Good Old Horse. —A certain brother E. had two brethren, whom we will call A. and B., who were all the time picking at each other, and getting up little fusses. Brother E. getting a little tired of the difficulties, went to brother A., and approached him somewhat in the follow ing manner : "See here, brother A., I have an old horse I want you to get and work a few days." Well, why do you want me to do that ?" responded A. Well," says E, "he is gentle and quiet, he does just what you tell him. You start anywhere with him he goes right along minding his own business, pays no attention to what does not belong to him ; is always peaceable, and gets into no troubles." Said A., somewhat excited : Well, brother E., what do you mean by all this? there is a trick in it "Well," responded E., " I thought if you would work that old horse awhile you would learn to go along about your own business, and not be all the time picking a fuss with brother B." Brother E. called on brother B., and gave him the same advice. It cured them both. That must be a valuable horse ! We wonder if it is for sale or to let. It might pay in some churches or neighborhoods to buy that horse and loan him out among the breth and sisters, a few days in a place. The suggestion is worth noting. An Old Fashioned Business.— Shoemaking great antiquity. The instrument for cleaning hid shoemakers bristle, added to his yam and his knife, were known as early as the twelfth century. He was accus tomed to hawk his goods, and it is conjectured that there separate trade for annexing the soles. The Romans, in fil MBiral times, wore cork soles in their shoes to secure their feet from water, and, as high heels were not then introduced, the Roman ladies who wished to a] put plenty of cork under them. The streets o the time of Domitian, were blocked by cobblers' stalls, which he therefore caused to be removed. In the middle cleaned by washing with a sponge oH, soap, and grease were the substitutes for blacking. Buckles were worn in shoes in the fourteenth century. In Irish abbey a skeleton was found with marks of buckles the shoes. In England they became fashionable many years before the reign of Queen Mary : the laboring people wore them of copper gilt : not long after shoe-roses came in. Buckles revived before the revolution of 1789, and finally became extinct before the clo3e of the eighteenth century. Heaven ly T<ivb .— When we are fullest of heaven ly love, we are best fitted to bear with human infirmity, to live above it and forget its burden. It is in the absence of love to Christ, not its fulness, that makes us so impa tient of the weaknesses and inconsistencies of our Christian brethren. Then when Christ is all our portion, when He dwells with us and in us, we have so satisfying ment of his perfection that the imperfection of < allowed up, and the sense of our own nothing ness makes us insensible to that which is irritating to in dividual feeling.— Hare. << a it j. ren is of es, the was a ■ taller me, in , and shoes were an on an enjoy others is as it were sw A threadbare stranger in Detroit registered himself at one of the hotels as "The Emperor of Brazil," and then sat down on a trunk checked for New York and began whist ling "No One to Love." Chief Jones was called, and bowing profoundly to the distinguished stranger, asked : "Aje you the Emperor of Brazil, sir?" "Not I," replied the shabby man. "Why, then, do you so register your name?" "Because I wish to travel incognito." The stranger slumbered in the station-house.
