Not My Own.
BY MAKGAKET K_ SANGSTKK. Thine alone, entirely Thine, Purchased by a right divine, Nover more mine own to be; Lord, I would be lost In Thee! Thine my strength, or more or less, Thine my hand, its work to bless; Only Thine my passing dnys, Thine my hours to fill with praise. Not my own the gifts I bring, Tribute t.r? mv I.nrji and Kinsr. Only mine as treasures lent. For the Owner used or spent. Oft it comes, oh ! blessed thought, With a suange delight inwrought, Thine forever, Thine alone, I^ord of life, and not my own ! When my spirit, is perplexed. When by devious currents vexed. Calmly I look up to Thee. Best of friends and guides to me. Thou wilt keep me Thou wilt save, Thou wilt make me ever brave, In the utmost stress and strife I may trust for death or life. Never bearing pain or loss But in shadow of the Cross, Never walking on alone. Always with Thee, not my own ! Nothing would I hold as mine; Joy of Joys, my will is Thine; Lord, the full surrender take. Own the seal for Jesus' sake. The Hero and the Hen. A little more than 300 years ago there was terrible times in France. A religious war was going on, and all over the country there wero battles and sieges and many cruel things being done, and a great many good people lost their lives. Jso one knows all the misery it caused, for often a family would be divided, part being Catholic, who believed in the pope, and a portion Protestant, who did not believe in the pope at all. After a while hostilities ceased, and a hollow peace was patched up between the contending parties. Hollow enough and false it was, indeed, on one Bide. The Huguenots, as the Protestants were called for many years, now numbered some of the bravest and noblest men in France among their chiefs. Two or three of the roy 25, 1572, the massacre of St. Bartholomew began. It was a fearful, fearful time. Men, women and little children were butchered; nobody was spared unless he was a Catholic and wore a cross on his hat or arm. Almost the first person killed was Coligni. He had been shot at and wounded two days before by some one who evidently meant to kill kim, and the admiral was ill with a sort of fever consequent from the wound. When the first alarm was heard, his chaplain, M. Merlin, was with him reading the scriptures. A number of persons rusned into the chamber, announcing that the court-yird was full of soldiery. "Say me a prayer. M. Merlin," said Coligni. UI commit my soul to the Savior." In a few moments the mob was heard coming up the stairway. "Save yourselves, my friends!" cried the aged admiral. "You will have time. As for me, they can only shorten my life a few days." The good clergyman and the others ?"1 nruitoiro onH wnf nut: nf th*? hnilSP ur evv vv*v through the tiling of the roof. Each fled a different way. Merlin, with his Bible under his arm, clambered over the roofs of the houses, in a direction from the Loubre. In attempting to jump from one to another in the darkness, his foot slipped, and he fell several feet, lodging in a hayloft. He was not hurt by the fall, and when he saw where he was. concluded that it was a fortunate accident, and was thankful at having stumbled upon this place of safety. No one would ever think of looking for him there; the Lord had guided his footsteps. But it was a long while before he ceased to tremble ; on every side he could hear the cries of tbe brutal soldiers: "Kill, kill the Huguenots?" and everywhere were the screams and and groans of the murdered and dying Protestants. It made his blood run cold to think of the wicked work that was being done. M. Merlin had kept his Bible with him as he fled, and, as he lay there in the hayloft, we can imagine him turning over the pages and comforting himself with the precious Eromises in the sacred word. The ours passed slowly, and he began to < grow hungry, but did not dare to leave i his retreat for fear of discovery, which, 1 of course meant death. Starvation stared him in the face if he remained there; however, he preferred to trust to God's mercy rather than man's. As he lay there, exhausted and almost helpless, M. Merlin heard a light rustling upon the hay like that of some object stepping carefully over the loft. Had his enemies tracked him thither, and were they coming to capture him ? He glanced fearfully out from beneath the hay with which he had covered himself, lie ieit creatiy relieved to see only a hen that was evidently hunting for a nest. Soon everything was quiet again. The secretive fowl retired after a while stealthily as it had appeared, not even making a cackle, much to the fugitive's relief. "Surely," thought M. Merlin, "the Lord is feeding me, for he hath sent his fowls to provide for his servant." And he crawled very carefully out of the hay and crept to the nest, which was near by. In it were three shining white eggs. He broke the shells of two and ate them, leaving one for a ne3t egg, hoping that Biddy would come again. And Biddy did come the next dav. sure enough, and laid another egg, much to Merlin's great joy and need, for he was very hungry. Three days he remained concealed in the hay-loi't, and each day his friendly visitor laid an egg for his dinner. This was all the food he had, but it saved him froui starvation. On the night of the third day he managed to get safely away and found a sure haven in the house of a friend. He lived many years after this, but I do not think he ever forgot how a hen once was the messenger of heaven to bring comfort and relief in a time of great tribulation. Less judgment than wit, is more sail than ballast. Hints on Pastoral Visitation. UY A COl*NTHV l'ASTOK. Put aside all formality and reserve. If you are distant and formal, those you visit will be distant and formal. Be cordial and social, even if received wiHi nnnnrpnt. nnlrlnpss whinh fold-! al family were inclined to their principles, but their most devoted adherent was the grand admiral, Gaspard de Ooligni. He was no*.v about sixty years old, a grey-headed, grave, benevolent nobleman, who, you would think, could have had no enemies. But a good man is always hated by the evil-disposed, and the pious Coligni, who. at one time had saved France in a great battle, had two bitter aud deadJyenemies. One of these was the duke of Guise, a reckless young nobleman of tweuty-two; the other was the queen mother, Catherine de Medici, a selfish and ambitious woman of fifty-five. These two persons, with several other Catholic leaders, devised a horrible plot, by which they hoped to get rid of Coligni and, at the same time, strengthen Catholicism. This was nothing less than to organize a band of soldiery, and at a stated time, when everybody was unsuspicious aud asleep, let them loose upon the populace with orders to slaughter all the Huguenots they found. Everything was favorable for carrying this horrible scheme into execution. and one summer night, August ness is generally more than half timidity, and will soon wear ofK Have something in mind to talk about, in which humble and common people i can join with you. Remember requires tact and study to make pastoral calls. A minister is to be pitied who can not, or rather who will not, school and adapt himself to this. Talk simple language about common things. Put your theology and your dictionary into your heart, and throw away that great, kingly, ministerial reserve, and go to people's houses as a neighbor and a friend. Get new to them. No airs of saintliness and good clothes! I once got the good will of a peculiar family by knocking at the back door. That was the "kind of a man for inem Visit all the families ! Some ministers call only 011 those that go to church. That is like repairing the wall where it is in good condition, and neglecting it where it has tumbled down. Very pleasant and very natural, maybe; but it is not the way to win souls. Our Saviour went to people. "To every creature" does not mean to the families of respectability and good parlors. The weedy part of the garden needs most hoeing. Call ofteuest on the negligent families. Don't give them a chanCe to feel slighted ; don't neglect the negligent. Visit short. Five to fifteen minutes will generally answer. A great deal may be'said and done in ten minutes. Don't wear people out. Don't forget that their time is fully occupied. Short visits, on the whole, do most good. Call on people in their trouble. Sicknesses and losses and sorrows are always opening doors to the man of God. If you don't go near people in their adversities, it will be of little avail to go to them in their prosperities. Tkey all want friends in trouble. A tear of sympathy will move men and women Into whose crusted souls sermons never entered. Be sure -to go where sickness and sorrow op^ri the door; don't wait to be sent for} Be sunshiny and pleasant. Smiles will do more missionary work than frowns. Visit the hard places in your happiest moods, if you have moods. It wants a cheery and joyous man to make pastoral visitation a success. The more heaven he can carry in his face the better. Make your visits largely to the children?these are the hope of the future; and they are also the best door to parents' hearts here and now. Every little sympathy of kindness or gift to the child knocks off a prejudice about the older heart. If you can get the children to love and welcome you, the way is open to all the rest. "A little child shall lead them." < Have sympathy with people's humiliations. It is better, on the whole, 1 not to have them know when the pas- j tor is coming; uui uuuiuiuu jjcw^ic , can't be expected to be always in shape to receive company. Hence be un- , willing to be considered company. Be , one of their own number. Do not ( seem to be annoyed by their confusion, or hurry, or poverty. If need be, sit down at the very humblest table, and make yourself agreeable. I knew one i case where the first step in leading a ' family out to church, and into the way j of life, was the minister's eating hom- J iny and milk with them. Drop in religious appeals in a famil- | iar and natural way. People don't ( want to be preached to in their own i houses, but they cau beset thinking i without knowing it. It will defeat t the object you have in view to talk re- ? ligion all the time. A few words are 4 better than many. No pious plati- c tudes. Let every word for Jesus be one of force and meaning, though j "ieemins 10 ne unpiannen. x>e uuiurui t and easy when you speak of Jesus. , They will remember the word dropped in plain and common conversation. Pray?if sanctified, God-guided common sense seems to require it. Sometimes the offer to pray does more hurt than good. I have known ministers to hany on and pray under such absurd circumstauces as to produce merriment and jest after they are gone. Prayer can Dot be forced. Better go from the family with laughter, in place, than with prayer out of place. Some afternoons I have prayed in every house, and some afternoons not in any. The way seemed to be settled, and the shrewd pastor will generally lind a cunning spirit of appropriateness that will settle this question for him. Do your principal praying before you get tnere. rrayer jor tnem oeiore * you leave the study will smooth the J, way wonderfully. You can better pray with them after you have prayed for them. After all, the most "effect- 1 ual prayer" of the whole "pastoral A visitation" is the prayer before your start from home! ' The same trouble comes to people of . widely different employment. The theatrical travelers, or troups, are having ' violent grief over the fact that the opera- tionof the Interstate Commerce Law will drive them out of business. If they can J get no special rates they cannot live, for even now, with many kindnesses shown them, they do not have remarkable prosperity. But just when churches and religious people were rejoicing at the prospects of being delivered from the demoralization of shows, the suggestion is made that delegates to religious meetings will share the sufferings of the unhappy tragedians, and that produces reflections that are not so agreeable. It is almost cortain that the law will bo so under- i stood as not to interfere with either of tbem, but if it do, the Church can easily bear the increased expense of its conventions, and should be glad to do so. It would be a cliean price to pay for killing off much wickeuness.?A. R. Prcxbyterian. Columbia, S.

A dispatch from Lexington, Ky., says : "Professor John M.Klein, the Kentucky astronomer, discovered the Star of BethRethleliem Tuesday night at 7 o'clock. Its position is in the northwestern heavens, closely skirting the horizon. Its lustre is most intense. This is the same star that guided the wi3e men of the East to the manger where the infant Saviour lay. Its period is about 300 years, and astronomers have been on the lookout for it for several years. Professor Klein uses a smoked glass lens, without a mirror, which enables him to detect comets and other heavenly bodies hovering in proximity to the sun. A comet can by the Klein method be seen in daylight. Little is known about this star, except that its appearance was first recorded about the time of Christ's birth, anu that it has appeared five times since. It is said to be a star of the first magnitude, and visible even at noonday. Its orbit has neve? been calculated." Buttermilk. In warm summer weather many persons feel an irresistible craving for something sour, and often gratifying this desire by a free indulgence in pickles and vegetables made acid with vinegar. This demand l'or acid indicates a deficiency in the acid secretions in the stomach, and the demand for an artificial one is a natural one, but vinegar is not the best substitute. Lactic acid is one of the chief agents that give acidity to the gastric juice of the stomach iu health. This is the acid of sour milk, and, therefore, one of the best summer diet drinks that we can use is buttermilk. It satisfies the craving for acids by giving the stomach a natural supply, and at the same time furnishing in its cheesy matter a good supply of wholesome nutrition. A man will endure fatigue in hot weather better on milk than any drink he can use. Christian WordN. Palmetto Post. we aeein n eiiiiiimiwj m an illustration of the true spirit of Christianity, to allude briefly to a portion of the services at the Carteret-Street Methodist Church, Beaufort, on Sunday last. At both of the services on that day, the Rev. E. J. Meynardie, the pastor, offered up eloquent prayers for the early and har- ' mouious adjustment of the unfortunate i disagreement and troubles which are now agitating and perplexing an honored j branch of the Church of Christ. God's blessing was invoked upon the Episcopal head and his people generally; "that Lis authority may be maintained and peace restored and perpetuated among those , jver whom he has the oversight." i < A Simple Remedy.
