Not Mine, But Thine.
Thy way, nor mine, O Lord, However dark it be; , O lead me by Thine own right hand. Choose out the path for me. Smooth let it be or rough, It will be still the best; Winding or straight, it matters not. It leads me to Thy rest. I dare not choose my lot, I would not if I might; But choose Thou for me, 0 my God, So I shall walk aright. The kingdom that I seek Is Thine; so let the way Tho? lendR to it. O .Loid. be Thlue. Else I must surely stray. Take Thou iny cup, aud It With Joy or sorrow fill; As ever best to Thee may seem. Choose Thou my good and ill. Choo6e Thou for me my friends, My sickness or my health ; Choose Thou my Joys and cares for me, My poverty or wealth. Not mine, not mine the choice. In things or great or small; fie Thou my Guide, my Guard, my Strength, My Wisdom, and my All. ?Llgb t in Life's Shadows. "Husbands, Love Yonr Wives." It doesn't sound silly to say, "I love you." I hear that fifty times a day, and it sounds new every time. The manliest man I ever saw is the one that looks at my many mistakes and failures as such, and lovingly helps me overcome them; who comes home every day?not once in a week or a month?and puts his arms around me as tenderly as the first day he took me for his own; who doesn't kiss me before company aud scold me when they are gone ; who sees new beauties in me every day, and thinks no other man has such a noble wife as he ; that not one single hour passes in a day but he thanks God for his wife ; who, when he thinks in any way he has hurt my feelings, doesn't think it unmanly .3 come and say, "I am so >' wlirt Hruian'l'. dread to Bee a BUI 1J J TTUV UWWU * ? holiday come that he will have to be shut up at home with his wife, but esteems it his highest privilege; who, if he knows I am coming to his office during the day, makes preparation for me, and treats me as a most distinguished guest, and doesn't look up with a frown, and say, "Well, what do want ?" but makes me know that he would rather see me than the queen. Now, husband, if 'you love your wife, show her that you do. Don't leave her to guess at it. Then you will see the bloom come back to her face as it was years ago when you led her to the altar, your dependent bride. In China the men wear skirts and and the women trousers. The men wear their hair long and the women wear it short. The men carry on dressmaking and the women carry burdens. The Chinese begin dinner with dessert and end with soup and fish. The Chinese launch their vessels sideways and mount their horses from the off side. Books are read backward, and what we call footnotes are inserted at the top of the page. The Chinese surname comes first instead of last. The Chinese shake their own hands instead of the hands of those they would greet. The spoken language of China is not written and the written language is not spoken. The Chinese dress in white at funerals and in mourning at weddings, while old women always serve as bridemaids. m m m Hold on Boys !?Hold on to virtueit is above all price to you, in all times and places. Hold on to your good character, for it. ia and ever will be. vour best wealth. Hold on to your hand when you are about to strike, steal, or do an improper act. Hold on to truth, for it will serve well, and do you good throughout eternity. Hold on to your tongue when you are just ready to swear, lie, or speak harshly or use an improper word. Hold on to your ^temper when you are angry, excited, or imposed upon, or others angry about you. Hold on to your heart when evil persons seek your company and invite you to join their game?, mirth and revelry. Hold on to your good name at all times, for it is much more valuable to you than gold, high place or fashionable attire. The British Medical Journal, in commenting on the death of a boy who died from drinking hot tea without milk, says that the tea had been mil iu me uveu iui aoiuv lime, su luut it had ; become a strong decoction of tannin. In being drunk without milk the tannin was not brought into a relatively harmless albumninous tannate. It is on accout of this method of making tea that it is so injurious to digestion. Neither the Chinese nor the Japanese, who know how to make tea, use milk with it; but with them the hot water is poured on and off the leaves at table, and it drunk as soon as it becomes a pale straw color. No people in the world drink so much tea as the Japanese, yet in Japan it is never injurious to the digestion, as, by their method of preparation, the tannin is not extracted from the leaves. The fact that the Bible, the best of all text-books, finds no place iu the majority of our colleges, begins to attract attention but there is no reason why it should excite wonder. A boy full of the Bible is bullet proof and the devils Knows it. A youtbtul mind crammed with pagan poetry makes the chances for a licentious life easy and the devil knows it. Pagan philosophy uuoDposed by revealed truth prepares the way for materialism, and the devil knows it. Science separated from revelation is one-sided and tends to skepticism and the devil knows it. Boys that don't study the Bible when they are boys will hardly study it at all, and the devil knows it. The devil knows what he is about. The mayor of Detroit is to be credited with a valuable and practical scheme for helping the poorer classes to help themselves. Early in the past spring he invited the owners of vacant lots within the city limits to give him permission to assign these open spaces to people out of employment who would cultivate them for the season,, and thus eke out at least a partial livelihood. Shakespeare gives as signs that Benedick was in love, that he brushed his hat in the morning, went to the barber's, and was melancholy. When our young men are melancholy it is not because they are in love, but because they are in debt. + The devil always feels contented when he can secure the chief magistrates of nations and States to do his biddings in high places. From .Sire to Sun. The following letter from Henry Ward Beecher to his sou is authentic and should be carefully pondered by every young man : "Brooklyn, N. Y., Oct. 18, 1S78. "My Dear Herbert; You aie now for the fir6t time really launched into life for yourself. You go from your father's house, and from all family connections, to make your own way in the world. It is a good time to make a new start, to cast out faults of whose evil you have had an experience, and to take on habits the want of which you have fouud to be so damaging. "1. You must not go into debt. Avoid debt as you would the devil. Make it a fundamental rule ; No debt ?cash or nothing. "2. Make few promises. Religiously observe even the smallest promise. A man who means to keep his promises cannot afford to make any. "3. Be scrupulously careful in all statements. Accuracy and perfect frankness, noguess-work. Either nothing or accurate truth. "4. When working for others, sink yourself out of sight, seek their interest. Make yourself necessary to those who employ you by industry, fidelity and scrupulous integrity. Selfishness is fatal. "5. Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Demand more of yourself than anybody else expects of you. Keep your personal standard high. Never excuse yourself to yourself; never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself; be lenient to everybody else. "(j. Concentrate your force on your proper business ; do not mm oB. lie constant, steadfast, persevering. "7. The art of making one's fortune is to spend nothing. In this country an intelligent and industrious young man may become rich if he stops all leaks and is not in a hurry. Do not make haste ; be patient. "8. Do not speculate or gamble. You go to a land where everybody is excited and strives to make money suddenly, largely, and withont working for it. They blow soa[.-bubbles. Steady, patient industry is both the surest and safest way. Greediness and haste are two devils that destroy thousands every year. "9. In regard to Mr. B , he is a Southern gentleman ; he is receiving you as a favor to me; do not let him regret it. ".10. I beseech you to correct one fault?severe speech of others ; never speak evil of any man, no matter what the facts may be. Hasty, fault-finding and severe speech of absent people is not nouurauiK, is lo uc unjum and cruel, makes enemies to yourself, aud is wicked. "11. You must remember that you go to Mr. B not to learn to mauage a farm like his. One or two hundred acres, not forty thousand, is to be your future homestead; but you can learn the care of cattle, sheep, the culture of wheat, climate, country, manners, and customs, and a hundred things that will be needful. "12. If by integrity, industry, and well-earued success you deserve well of you fellow-citizens, they may in years to come ask you to accept honors. Do not seek them, do not receive them while you are young?wait; but wheu you are established you may make your father's name known with honor in halls of legislation. "Lastly, do not forget your father's and your mother's God. Because you will be largely deprived of church privileges, you need all the nerve to keep your heart before God. But do not despise email churches and humble preachers. "Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.' "Read often the Proverbs, the precepts and duties enjoined in the >?ew Testament. May your father's God go with you and protect you." Be More Gentle. A well-known member of the House of Commons, who died a few years ago, said towards the close of his life that if he were called again to go over former lines of thought, he would bear himself more gently and in a more modest, kindly and charitable spirit than he once did. How often we hear of something similar to this being uttered by people as they draw near to the bouna of life. Young men often think they must be very stern and strenuous, very hard and heroic, and must brand evils unflinchingly, no matter who is hurt in the process. They have much self-confidence, and are very sure that whatever does not commend itself to their judgment or taste is an evil that should be summarily put down. So they impiujje with violence against a great many people, and create much unnessary bad feeling. But when they are older grown and understand human nature better, they begin slowly to realize what blunders they have made. They una it mnnlH hnue h?pn hettor nnt In have pushed with such fierceness or condemned with euch severity. We rarely feel that we have been too gentle and modest, too charitable and kindly.?Zion's Herald. The Alligittor. The alligator builds a nest of mud and grass, and lays a large number of oblong, white eggs; but the little ones when hatched often serve as lunch for their unnatural papa, and this cannibalism, more than the rifle, prevents their numbers from increasing. The alligator is not particular as to diet. I once found the stomach of a ten-footer to be literally filled with pine chips from some tree which had been felled near the river's bank ! They are fond of wallowing in marshes, and many a man out sni(>e shooting has taken an involuntary bath by stumbling into their wallows. In dry seasons alligators will traverse long distances overlaud to reach water, and travelers have come suddenly upon alligators crawiing amid prairies or woods, in the most unexpected manner. The alligator as a rule is very wary, but at times sleeps quite soundly. i ? A correspondent says; 'J wish to tell those who may suffer from that terrible affliction, felon, of a painless remedy that will effect a perfect cure in twenty-four hours, as I have had occasion to prove within two of the last three day9. A lady came to me who had been suffering over two weeks with a felon on the end of her middle finger. I saturated a bit of grated wild turnip, the size of a bean, with spirits of turpentine and applied it to the affected part. It relieved the pain at once. In twelve hours there was a hole to the bone, and the felon was destroyed. I removed the turuip and applied healing salve, and the finger is well." mm The strongest animals in the world are those that live on a vegetable diet. The lion is ferocious rather than strong. The bull, horse, reindeer, elephant and antelope, all couspicut ua for strength, choose a vegetable diet. C- . .. ...j. . .. JMiv'.-C v CHANEY ST.
