The Revival.
Salem church Is much revived,
Now united heart and hand :
Many have been made alive,
To Btart for Canaan's land.
Lord, bless the servants Thou didst
send.
Who labored with their might;
On Thee for held they did depend
In bringing souls to light.
Some sinners are returning home
Thy blessings to receive.
Grant that they may no more roam,
Nor Thy Holy Spirit grieve.
Under thy great protecting care,
Reneath Thv analterinsr wine :
Shield them from the tern pter'iTsn are,
Ob! Thou our Lord and King.
Still some are'.staDdlng out afar
Id tbls cold world of Bin ;
Ob! will Tbou leave tbe gate ajar
That they, too, may enter In ?
And may they shortly learn to know,
That Tbou doat own and bless;
Those who will serve Tbee here below
Shall be Tb y heavenly guest.
May we all love and serve Thee more,
wnile here on earth we slay ;
Then may we dwell on thai bright
bore,
Where there Is no cloudy day.
?Susie M. Harrison, la Central Methodist.
Mills.
Here is a mill. Steam is the power.
Logs are the raw material; lumber is
tbe product, and houses and fences
etc., are among the results. All is
gain and everybody blesses the saw
mill and him who invented this engine
of wrath and comfort.
Here is a paper mill. Steam is the
power again. Old thrown away rags
tbe material. Paper is the product,
and books and letters, creating and
transmitting thought, disseminatiug
light, and thereby lifting humanity
by creating and consuming the best
within it. Everybody blesses the old
rag mill, for all is gain.
Here is a cotton mill. Water or
steam Is the power. Cotton is the raw
material. Thread is the product,
clothing for body, and beds, comfort,
life am results. Aeain everybody
blesses the man who made the mlil.
Here is a corn mill. Water or steam
is the power, corn is the raw material.
Meal or flour is the product, while
food, musk, good blood, life, are results.
Everybody nails him as a benefactor
who invented the grist mill. All is
gain.
Here Is a steel plant or iron mill.
Steam again is the power. Ore is the
raw material, Jron-Bessimer steel is
the product. All that steel enters into
from razors to railroads are among the
results, bringing the world under tribute
to him who invented this great
mill.
But here is an old dirt mill. Steam
or a mule is the power.
Dirt is the material. Bricks are the
product, while, buttresses and buildings,
pillars and pavements the results.
Welcome the man who gives us the
dirt mill.
But whpt is this ? Why it is a gin
mill.
It runs by a different sort of force.
Lioense is the power nere. Listen !
Men and boys are the raw material.

some of the results. All is loss!?

Well, somebody stop the mill.
O, not now, says the democrat, we
want the revenue. Revenue! How
much do you get? "Well, I?I?I?
well, to be candid, I don't know."
Can't somebody tell me how much
revenue this mill puts back into the
treasury. "8 cts on the dollar.
Then this gin mill is a dead money
Ions of 92 cts on the dollar, to say nothing
of the bankruptcy of mind and
morals?home and Heaven.
Again I cry, shut down that mill!
Wait, says the politician ; I am depending
on the saloon for re-election
to congress. Pray what will you do 10
stop this mill, if you get back ! What
have you done ?
You interfere with my rights, says
the owner of the mill.
No I don't, your rights end when
those of these women and children be<?ln
Vnnr ritrhfs ended the minute
you began to detract from; the happiness
or welfare of any human being.
Your rights ended sir, the day you
started that mill.
My fellow countrymen, do you bear
that mill cry ? Give logs, says the
mill, or I must stop. By common
consent, the logs are furnished.
Give me corn says the grist mill or
I etop. By common consent every
bin in the land contributes.
The same honest cry comes from every
other mill which must grind in order
to bless the world.
But what is that louder, fiercer, longer,
more demanding cry I hear ? Why
that is the cry of the gin mill. Its
voice drowns the hum of every industry
and the entreaty of every worthy
enterprise.
Listen ! Bring on your boys?give
me your best. I must have them or I
can't grind.
I join my protest to that of every
woman in this country and say stop that
mill. In the name of eyery living boy
and girl?in the interest of every child
unborn, I say stop that mill. I know
the democratic and republican parties
ho Hip liftAnsft nnwftr. siv erind on. I
know they say we must have revenue,
if wives and mothers have to furoisb
the material out of which to grind it.
I know the mill is in good running order
; I know that every 5 minutes a
human body and soul is ground out to
keep it a going. But in tbe name of
God that mill can, shall be stopped.
Preach, pray, live, cry, vote against
everybody who, directly or indirectly
takes interest in this mill.?J. B. Culpepper
in Georgia Evangelist.
Straighten the Back.
One of the greatest and most common
deformities of the day, observes
a writer in the Boston Transcript, is
one tnat witn care ana auemioa
can be remedied. It is the roundshouldered
or stooping habit. Many
of the most natural figures show this
tendency to stoop, while in the narrow-chested
it Is marked to a painful
degree. And yet, by raising one's
self leisurely upon the toes in a perpendicular
position several times a
day this deformity could be easily
rectified. To do this properly one
must be in a perfectly upright position.
the arms dropping at the side,
the heels well together, and the toes
forming an angle of forty-five degrees.
The rise should be trade very slowly
and from the balls of both feet, and
the desoent should be accomplished in
the same way, without swaying the
body out of its perpendicular line.
The exercise is not an easy one, but
may be accomplished by perseverance
and patience. It can be modified, too,
by standing first on one leg, then on
the other. Inflating and raising the
chest at the same time is a part of the
exercise, and if persevered in will
ultimately show an increased chest
measurement, development of lung
power, and perfectly straight and erect
figure.
A Farmer'* PledRe.
"Hallo! who are you ?" asked one of
Tom Mather's reapers, of a Beven year
boy.
"I am papa's temperance pledge*"
"You are! Well, then I have a
mind to pitch you into the middle of
next week if it is you who are beeping
us from having a comforting drop of
whisky and water," said a reaper.
"Yes its me," laughed little Dick,
in high glee; and if you want to
know where papa signed me, I'll show
you ; and the little boy pulled down
the collar of his shirt and showed a
queer white scar on the shoulder,
reaching up towards bis throat.
"Yes, boys," said Tom, "that little
fellow is my pledge, and I signed him,
though he does not know what that
really means. When I bought this
farm ten years ago I did not know the
taste of rum or whisky. Everybody
took a little, as I found, in harvest
times and when work was pressing, so
I fell into the same way ; a drop if
the weather was very hot, a little if It
was very cold, a long drink at noon if
I was hard at work. I always kept
cider in my cellar, all my work hands
had it, and some way the farm began
to run down, too.
"Summer before last it was very hot,
and I was not very well; bad been
having chills. When they came on I
thought that nothing helped me more
than a little?no, a great deal, of whisky.
One noon in the fields I was
rather hungry, the dinner horn had
not sounded, and I picked up my jug
ani took a long pull. What with the
heat and taking it on an empty stomach,
the whisky flew to my head as
never before. I cut the grain every
way, the ground rising up and going
down uuder me, and the farm shifted
till the points or the compass were an
wrong.
"You just saw that boy of mine?
He is my only one, his mother's idol,
and'-well, I would die tor that boy
any day. The little chap had taken
his puppy and wandered off out where
I was working. It was hot. He was
hot. He was only five years old, and
what did he do but lie right down
where the tall grain would shade him,
and go to sleep, with the puppy cuddling
down and doing the same. Well,
the dizzier I got the more reckless 1
swung about, and suddenly I slashed
out with that sharp steel, and?good
heavens, boys! Just fancy it! the
the poor litte puppy never yelped, his
throat was clean; and tbat boy of
mine! One great gash down his soft
white flesh, right up to his tender little
throat, but escaping it, for the
puppy nestled there.
"Idon'tkuow much about the rest
of that day, nor the time, unttl I heard
that the boy would not die. But when
old Dr. Kinley said he might live, I
just held him up to God in my arms,
and I said: "Here, Lord, is my temperance
pledge ! I'll never touch one
drop of liquor while I live, and this
boy, whose lifo has been spared, never
shall either, if Dravers and example
and teaching can'prevent; and so,
boys, I can't treat you, for I have
signed my pledge in blood."
There was no more murmuring after
that.
The Girl Visitor.
When you are packing your trunk
try and put in it everything that you
will need, so that you will not have
to borrow from your hostess. You will
require the silk or cotton matching
your gown, your needles, scissors, and
thimble, and if you are an adept at
artistic needlework I would suggest
your doing a pretty piece while you
are away?one that may be left as
asouvenior of your visit with your
hostess. You must have with you
your own brushes, your letter paper
and pens, and when you open your
trunk iyou must put your things in
their proper places, giving them the
same care which you would if you
were going to be in the house a year
instead of a wees. ?sesiaes your
clothes there must be some virtues
packed in your trunk, virtues that
you will take out and use all the time.
One is consideration. You will find
that a visitor equipped with this will
be much liked. Another is punctuality,
that virtue of kings ; and still
another is neatness, a dainty little
virtue specially adapted to young
women. Then, too, there is another
little virtue which doesn't always have
that name given to it, but certainly is
one, and that is pleasant small talk.
You want to be able, among your
friends when you are out, and most
especially at table, to talk pleasantly
on subjects that are not personal, and
by making yourself mistress of the art
of small talk you will be surprised to
tind how agreeable you will be considered,
and as you do not discuss the
affairs of the last establishment where
you visited you will make your hostess
glad, for she will know that her
surroundings and whatever happens
in her house will be shown the same
respect.
Why Hettle Whs Happy.
Very many girls would have
thought that Hettie Bowers had not
much to make her happy. She had
no home of her own, and worked In
Mrs. Adams's kitchen from Monday
morniDg till Saturday night. But the
truth of the whole matter was that
Hettie was a Christian. There was
often a song on her lips, and Mrs.
Adams was won't to say "The kitchen
was the brightest room in the
house."
"What a suushiny disposition your
little kitchen girl has,," guests would
sometimes say to Mrs. Adams.
And the mistress, who knew well
the secret of Hettie's happiness, always
answered : "Yes, it is the sunshine
of God's love in her heart."
"Hettie," Mrs. Adams asked one
day, "why are you always so happy ?"
"Why ma!am," she au^wered,
"Jesus loves me, and isn't that enough
to make any one happy ?"
"But how do you know he loves you,
nettle 7" coniinea mrs. Aaams.
"He said so, ma'am/' she said, "aud
I couldn't doubt his word."
"Then you think he never forgets,
Hettie ??
Her face lit up with a bright smile.
"Oh ! that is the beauty of such
love; we forget sometimes, but he
never does."
"But Hettie, don't you ever feel
lonely ?"
"Not while he is with me, ma'am ;
but sometimes when I forget his great
love, I repine."
"Well," said Mrs. Adams to herself,
as she stepped out of the kitchen,
"what grace he has bestowed upon
this little one ! While Hettie may be
only a poor kitchen girl, as we view
things, yet hereafter a rich reward
awaits her. 'He knoweth his own,
and calleth them by name.' "
Miss Augusta Mayne (to Pat Cogue,
who had just tendered her his seat):
"You have my sincere thanks sir !"
Pat Cogue : "Not at all, mum ; not
at all. It's a duty we owe to the sex.
Some folks only does it pheu a lass be
pretty ; but I says, says I, 'The sex,
Pat,' 'not the individual.'"
Every drunkard used to boast that
he could drink or let it alone.

Anchor to God.
Let your faith get a strong hold on
God. In the little ports that face the
Atlantic storms, I have seen the coasting
vessels put out huge cable9, making
fast the 9hip at stem and stern,
and coiled about the posts that held to
the posts that held to the solid rock
and the captain has looked up at the
storm with a kind of indifference,
tightening bis lips and nodding his
head. "That will hold," quoth he.
Dear heart, when the storm comes get
out faith's big cable and wrap it around
the faithfulness of the Almighty?
"that will hold." They of olden time9
cast out four anchors and wished for
the day. Faith's four anchors have a
grand anchorage?the love of Godthat
can never, never fail us. Have
faith in his love.
Have faith in his faithfulness. My
Lord, hast thou not caused it to be
spoken for me: "Your heavenly
Father careth for you?" Put your
finger on the word. Is it not this on
which thou hast caused me to hope,
my Lord ? And is the foundation to
be raoyed ? Never! It is a blessed
hold for our anchor.
Come, fetch another anchorjand fling
it out. Let it go down among the
tumbling seas. It holds?the power of
ijou. "iwy uou, my uou, ari luou iiih
able to deliver? Art thou not greater
tbau all the ills that cap beset me ?
Lord of tbe winds aud waves, Almighty
is thy name. Aud lo ! I am
thine, and thou art miue. I will not
be afraid."
And yet auotber anchor briug aud
let it go. Fear not. Let it plunge
among these seetbiug waves. Let
faith take hold of the wisdom of God.
My farther, thou kuowest best. I see
but the beginning, aud that but dimly.
Thou seest tbe end and outcome ot it
all. Thou leadest thy people like a
flock, and thou goe6t before them.
Not needlessly are they exposed to
beat of storm and stress of weather,
nor carelessly are they suffered to
wander along the bleak hillside. Thou
knowest whither they should go. Unerring
wisdom guides us. We cannot
fear. We dare not doubt. That anchor
holds. ?Mark Guy Pearse.
. The
Law of Love.
Well has it been said that love is the
greatest thing in the world. There is
nothing known that is so great a producer
of progress and happiness as this
one principle. It reaches to the
heights and descends to tbe valleys.
It can be applied to individuals or nations.
It is the arbiter of every action
aud the basis of God's dealings with
men. There Is nothing so flexible,
nothing so comprehensive. It is a
broad, brooding principle, applicable
alike to any one of a hundred cases:
stooping to bring up the wounded, and
feed the hungry, aud clothe the naked,
governing |the home life of the
rudest toiler; ruling with equal power
in court and congress, and directing
the robed judgment of the bench;
tinging art with a mellower hue, and
purifying literature of unseemly taint;
looking with kindly eyes into the face
of everyone who bears the mark of
man and therefore brother ; looking
into the heavens in grateful recognition
of the goodness of the All-Fatner.
This was Christ's law of love, the only
law He ever gave.?Rev. Frank S.
Arnold, in Interior.
In many a Sunday*snhool there . is
found the whispering scholar. It may
be a boy. It is oftener a girl. It is
sometimes a young lady. It iB seldom
a young man. If the teacher is a
lady, the young man if he were ever
so inclined to whisper, would uot do so
out of respect to the lady. If the
teacher is a man, some very direct and
uncomplimentary way will be found
to bring the transgressor to order. But
the young lady whisperer, what is to
be done for her? She is the difficult
to manage of all. The lady teacher is
perplexed and grieved, and often in
despair. The gentleman teacher hesitates
greatly to call the lady offender
to order. And so the whispering goes
on, greatly to the detriment of the
class, to the sincere grief of the teacher,
if not almost to the failure of the
teaching. Here as elsewhere, the proverb
applies, that, "One sinner destroyeth
much good." Please, kind
scholar, boy or girl, lady or gentleman,
do not do it. It is but a selfish
gratification that can do you no
good.
Sbade for Live Stock.
"A merciful man regardeth the life
of his beast." Don't neglect, during
the months of July and August, to
provide some shady place to which
your cattle, and sheep especially, can
resort duriug the heat of the day. All
stock is better for such a place, but
esneciallv should the ruminant ani
mala have it provided. There after
feeding they can relire and chew the
cud in comfort and derive the full
benefit of the food. If dark as well
as simply shaded overhead, they will
enjoy greater comfort, as the flies will
not trouble them so much. An old
shed or barn makes an excellent shelter,
or if these be not available, put
up a framework of poles and cover
with brush or weeds, or both. Such a
shelter will well repay the cost of
erection in the increased yield and
better condition of the stock.
Cheerful Talk at th Table.
Dont bring your troubles to the
table, or allow yourself to think or
speak of domestic cares during meal*
time. Half of the nostrums for the
cure of dyspepsia, headache and neuralgia
would disappear from the market
if this rule were followad. Silence
and surliness on the one hand, querulous
fault-finding and snarling on the
other, are bad aids to digestion, and
convert a feast into a fruitful breeder
of disease. Those who have read
Southey's "Table Talk" and other
works of the kind may realize how
greatly an agreeable intellectual
conversation can be made to conduce
to physical benefit; and how
a ready reply or happy repartee may
convert a meal into "a feast of reason"
as well as a moral agency for
permanent mental and physical improvement.
Try it.
Undoubtedly an umbrella is one of
the most useful of possessions on a
rainy day, but not many people know
the economy of keeping two umbrellas,
one for rain and the other for
shade. A sunshade should never be
wet, nor should au umbrella used for
rain be subjected to heat. Natty
young folks like to carry their umbrellas,
when not in use rolled up in
the slimmest and tightest of silk
cases. This, of course, looks very
neat and pretty in the street, but
never leave the case on in the house.
Keeping the folds tightly pressed has
a tendency to make the silk cut in
those folds.
