A Cradle Hymn.
Hush, my dear, lie still and slumber,
Ho\y angels guard thy bed;
Heavenly blessings without number
Gently falling on thy head.
Sleep, my babe; thy food and raiment,
House and home thy friends provide,
All without thy care or payment,
All thy wants are well supplied.
How much better thou'rt attended
Than the Son of God could be.
When from Heaven He descended.
And became a child like thee!
Soft and easy is thy cradle;
Coarse and hard the Savior lay,
When His birth place was a stable,
And His softest bed was hay.
Blessed babe! what glorious features,
Spotless fair, divinely bright!
Must He dwell with brutal creatures?
How could angels bear the sight?
Was there nothing but a manger
> Cursed sinners could afford,
To receive the heavenly stranger?
Did they thus effront the Lord ?
Soft, my child; I did not ohide thee,
Though my song might sound 100 hard ;
'Tis thy mother Bits beside thee.
And her arms shall be thy guard.
Yet to read the shameful story.
How the Jews abused their King,
How they served the Lord of glory,
Makes me angry while I sing.
See the kinder shepherds round Him,
Telling wonders from the sky!
Where they sought Him there they found
mm
With His Virgin Mother by.
See the lovely babe adressing;
Lovely Infant, how He smiled!
When He wept, the mother's blessing
Soothed ana hushed the holy child.
Lo.He slumbered In His manger,
Where the horned oxen fed ;
Peace, my darling, here's no dangor,
Here's no ox a-near thy bed.
Twas to save thee, child, from dying,
Save my dear from burning flame,
Bitter groans, and endless crying,
That thy blest Redeemer came.
Mayst thou live to know and fear Him,
Trust and love Him all thy days;
Then go dwell forever near Hiro,
See His face and sing His praise!
1 could give a hundred kisses,
Hoping that I most desire;
Not a mother's fondest wishes
Can to greater Joys aspire.
A Queer Proierb.
There is a queer old German proverb
which tells us, "The best is often the
* " J? 1TT1 a, J :i
enemy 01 tne gooa." ?uat uura it
. mean ?
I think I can show you.
Have you ever heard a boy say in
school, "I shan't bother over that lesson.
I couldn't get to the top of the
class if I tried"? He is possibly not a
stupid fellow at all; he could take a
fair place among his schoolmates, but
bepause he can't have the "best" place,
he won't try to take a "good" one.
So wanting the best actually prevents
his doing good: "The best is the
enemy of the good."
Another illustration. A man knows
it is a good thing to be religious, he
even admires a comrade who loves
God and worships him, who denies
himself to benefit his wife and children,
and to help the very poor; he secretly
desires to be like him.
But then he says, "What's the use?
I should get tired of going to church
every Sunday; I couldn't turn teetotaler;
I couldn't give up my pipe; and
if I did, I should forget myself at
times, and fly into a passion with my
wife when she contradicts me, or
snouia mc jem wnen ne aon c uuas i
bid him, and then where should I be?
Oh, no, I'd better not try."
So because he can't be best all in a
minute, as good as a man who for
years had leu a Christian life, he won't
even try to be good. The best is the
enemy of the good here. But ought it
to be so ? Are not the "good" and the
"best" brothers of the same family?
Ought not a man to feel, I can always
try to be good, and if I fail even, I am
nearer the best than if I had not tried?
It is a great mistake to think that a
man who tries to give up sin for a time
and then has a fall, is worse than if he
'{ - had not tried at all.
I tell you he is better, aye, better
tnougn me aevii may nave got mm at
a weak moment, and persuaded him to
commit the very sin he vowed himself
never to commit.
I know the world thinks differently,
but never mind tbe world.
That man has only to rise up ashamed
and repentant, aud to say humbly,
"I will try again," and he is in? a better
position than the scoffer who marks
his fall and proclaims it in the marketplace,
declaring, "Well, I never made
any profession, thank God !"
Yes, he often puts in these last two
words, though what he has to thank
God for, just then, poor fellow, I hard
Jy know.
So the end of this little sermon, dear
friends is, "Try to be good, and never
mind being best," and don't let scoffers
persuade you that trying to be
good is "making a profession."
They hold you up to scorn if you
don't keep to that profession, but if
you had no falls, and continued perfectly
steadfast, the world would still
find fault with you somehow, I am
certain; for those who won't try even
to be "good," are sure to dislike the
man who dees: He is a living reminder
to them that there is a better and
safer road than the one they are travelling
on, and that makes thegi envious
ana snarling.
Lady Maud.
Kitty was a little girl who liked to
have her own way, and always thought
she knew better than any one else
what was best for her, and so she was
often in trouble.
One day her father said he would
take her to the creek to fish, and Kitty
said Lady Maud must ?0 too. Now
Lady Maud was a beautiful wax doll,
with lovely yellow curls, and she was
aressea in pins suk. jviwy tnougnt a
great deal of her, for she was a birthday
present from an uncle she loved
dearly.
"I think you had better not take the
doll, Kitty,'' said her father; "young
ladies do not go fishing in pink silk."
When she reached the creek she put
the (fall down on a stone under a tree
near the bank, and she was sure Lady
Maud was safe.
But a little later she heard a loud
grunt, and lookiDg around saw a wild
hog rooting around the stone on which
the doll sat.
Kitty jumped up with a loud cry and
the hog rushed away; but in passing
the stone it knocked the dell down the
bank, and Kitty saw the water close
V*a*
uvci uoi unuiug.
The creek was deep at this spot, and
Kitty's father had to fish a long time
for Lady Maud.
When he drew her from the water
at last her wig was soaked off, the
paint was all washed from her face,
and the pink dress was ruined.
Kitty cried until she was almost
sick, but it was a lesson to her. She
learned through the loss of her doll
that her father was wiser than she, affor

McWhorler, of Saleti), \ a., Jnne 21st, 1887, and comes with glad tidings to every household and accomplishes 9
in a few minutes of itself, what has heretofore required days and hours of banl toiL It is estimated that I
Ono-Thlrd of the Wearing Value of Clothes was RUBBED OUT under the old process of washing, but I
now with the iutroduction ol the "Washing Compound" this waste is preserved and the unavoidable fl
EVIL of the PAST Is KEMEDIED, and A NEW EKA HAS DAWNED UPON OUK COUNTRY H
which saves TIME, LABOK and MONEY. I
For Novelty, Simplicity, Cheapness and Thoroughness it is Unsurpassed. Perfeot Satisfaction Guar- B
anteed. Tho entire washing of a large family'can be done in TWENTY MINUTES, and LE88 TIME, at
acostof only a few cents. There is nothing in the prepartaiou that will injure the bands or clotbu. 3
