D wight was very anxious to start for school. "I wish I could go now," he said. "Sanford has just gone by." "O, well !" said his mother, "you know the way as well as Sanford does." "Yes, mother; but 'two are better than one.' you know. What if Sanford should full down, and have no fellow to lift him up?" Mrs. Crawford laughed. She understood this somewhat bewildering sentence. Dwight had been learning his "junior" verse for the day, and had repeated it to her in wonderment; lie had not known there was such a verse in the .Bible: "Two are better than one: because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow ; but woe to him that is alone when he falleth : for he hath not another to help him up." "Very well," said Mrs. Crawford, after a moment, "if the case is urgent, go ahead : you can do the errands at noon. Only see to it that it is not you who fall, iustead of San ford." Then Dwight kissed his mother and made a rush for the door. It was easy to overtake San ford. They jogged on together after that at an easy pace. They were just entering the sch??ol grounds when Sanford nudged his friend's elbow. "Look there," he said, "up in that tree. I'll bet you a cookie that that is Joe Burke's paper with his corrected senteuces on that be made such a fuss about. They blew out of the window when he opened it yesterday, and have lodged in that hollow. Let's get a look at them." The boys made a dash for the tree. Sanford went up its bare branches like a squirrel. "Yes, sir!" he called out; "these are the very papers. Good for him?mean -camp! He is always cheating or ( doing an ill turn of some sort to a fellow. I wouldn't steal his papers, though he glared at me as if he thought I did ; but I'm awful glad be hasn'tgot 'em. It's the only lesson be is sharp in; he won't beat me j now." "I'm glad, too," began Dwight. "Isn't it a lucky thing he had the win- i dow open when he ought not to have had? We'll come off with flying colors this morning if he hasn't written them out again, and I don't believe be could get any odv to dictate for him tocopy. We'll keep dark until after"? and here Dwight came to a sudden j pause. "For if they fall, the one will , lift up hin fellow." Were they two on the very edge of a tumble? It looked ] like it. And what was that his mother said ? "Look 'here, Sanford," he said; ( "don't let's do it. That would be put- , ting ourselves on a level with Joe for moamioas T.ol'a fnt? them ill fiiirl tell him where we found them , they j ore all wet and muddy, but he can ( copy them before class.'' There was a short argument, but Dwight prevailed and the two marched into school, rescued papers in band. "I woul-iu't be a bitsurprised if you f.ut them there yourselves," was Joe's ungracious reply to this kindness. , ' There's gratitude for you!" said Sanford, as he moved away "Never mind," said Dwight, "we know we didn't; but, do you know, old fellow, you came pretty near a tumble this morning?" "What, from that tre*1? Nonsense! [ never thought of such a thing as tumbling." Dwighi laughed ; he knew what he meant, and he said to himself that mother would understand, but boys weren't so quick as mothers.?From "The Pansy." Tbe Child Character. The first character of right childhood is that it is modest. A well-bred r>K Mil r?/\f f Wlnlr 11 nnn too n K if D 1 uiiiiu uucu uwt iuiud it uau i^nvu ivo parents, or tnat it knows everything. | it may think that its father and mother know everything?perhaps that all grown-up people know everything; very certainly it is sure that it < does not. And it is always asking questions, and wanting to know more. A second character of right childhood is to be faithful. Perceiving that . its father knows best what is good for i it, a noble child trusts him wholly, < gives him its hand, and will walk ( blindfolded with him if he bids it. A third character of right childhood ' is to be loving and generous. Give 1 a little love to a c'.ild and you get a , great deal back, it leves everything j near it when it is a right kind of a child ; would alwayB give the best it bad away if you needed it; does not lay i plans for getting everything in the house for itself, and delights in helping people?you cannot please it so muchaB by giving it a chance of being useful, in ever so little a way. And because of all these characters it i is cheerful. ( Putting its (runt io its father, it is careful for nothing, being full of love to every creature, it is happy always, ? whether in its play or its duty. i ? . They Repented and Went. The following tale of woe illustrates how repentance sometimes comes too late: i An editor of a comic paper whose wife, daughter aud sister-in-law were at tbe seaside, went by the husband's train to join them on Saturday. Before going he had bought himself a fashiouable pair of trousers. On trying tbem on, tbey proved to be several inches too long. When he arrived at B , he took the trousers to bis wife, aud asked ber to cut off about six inches and hem them over. The good lady, who was not very well pleased with the loud pattern, brusquely refused. The same result followed an application to his wife's sister and his daughter. But before bedtime the wife, relenting, took them, and, cutting off six inches from the legs, hemmed them up uicely and put them on a chair. Half au hour later, her daughter, taken with compunction for her utifilial conduct, took the trousers, and, cutting off eight inches, hemmed aud replaced them. Finally the sister-inlaw felt the nmiirH of nonscience. aud she too, performed an additional surgical operation on the garment. When the editor appeared at breakfast on Sunday the crowd around the table thoughta Highland chieftain had arrived. Tbe Wm. K. Bell Caah Co. have cnps for men and boy*. X?l'? Dutch .Marbles. 'Get out, you Dutchman !" called Ned, as the new butcher's boy stepped up to take a game of marbles. "For shame'!" said Frank. "Come on, Otto." "I don't vant to blay some," Otto answered, offended. "I'm an out-and-out American boy," Ned defended himself, "and I'll associate with Americans who know how to play American games " "Pshaw ! Don't you know that the game of marbles was invented before ever Americans were?" "Well, where did they get the marbles, I'd like to know ? They don't know how to make them anywhere else." "Don't they ? That's where you are mistaken. Most or uie marojes are made in tbe old country. Don't you remember father teasing us about marbles coming higher this year, when the papers were saying so much about thp protective tariff last winter?" "But oi^s of the boys said they do not have the bind of clay out of which to mold them anywhere else?" "That was one of your patriotic American boys, I guess, who thinks it smarter to brag about his country than it is to learn the truth. Marbles don't happen to he moulded of clay. Why do they call them 'agates' ?" "Don't know?that's the name, I s'po?e." "But why not call them sandstones or brickbats? Agate is a kind of stone, isn't it?" "Yes ; but you don't mean our agates are cut out of stone ?" % "I mean that they are broken and ground out of agate." "Broken ?" Yes ; that's the first thing. They use the small pieces irom tne quarries and mills, breaking them into little cubes with hammers." "But how do they get them round ?" "These small blocks of stone are throne by the shovelful Into the hopper of a small mill, formed of a bedstone having itssurface grooved with concentric furrows ; above this is the 'runner,' which is of hard wood, having a level face on its lower surface. The upper block is made to revolve rapidly, water being delivered upon the grooves of the bed-stone where the marbles are being rounded." "Isn't that dreadfully slow ?" "It takes about fifteen minutes to finish a bushel of good marbles ready for the boy's knuckles. One mill will turn out 160,000 per week." "Well, I declare ! Where is that mill, Frank?" "Oberstein, Germany," "Oh; Oberstein bees mine home !" jried 0;to, with gleaming eyes. "I ?ee them marbles." If there ever was a sheepish-looking boy, it was Ned. But he steadied himself up, and said : "Come on, [)tto, and have a game. I'm ashamed [ said anVthincr." Collected Thought*. BY JOHN HEMMENWAY. Let gentleness appear iu all your lonversation. John Wesley. "All things whatsoever ye would ;hat men should do to you, do ye even jo to them," is of greater utility in the practice of life, than a hundred i rules which present the exact degree >f kindness that should be afforded in , prescribed cases.

' 0 the fires and murders of professed Christians! If this be godly what is leyilish ? If this be Christian what is paganism ? What is anti-christian ?

William Penn. [If the great and wise and good William Penn had been on earth during the American Civil War he would have condemned that war as strongly as he did the wars of Christendom in his day.] I have long been convinced that the emperor Constantine, in the 4th century, by calling himself a Christian, and pouring a flood of wealth and honor on the Christian Church, the clergy in particular, was productive of more evil to the church than all the ten persecutions put together. From tbe time that power and riches and honor of all kinds were heaped upon the Christians, vice of all kinds came ir\ libn o HaaH h/\th nn fho nlnrnrir onrf *u A4?V M. vvvu va. laity. From the time that the church and state, the kingdoms of Christ and of the world, were so strangely and unnaturally blended together, Christianity and heathenism were so thoroughly incorporated vith each other, that they will hardly ever be divided, till Christ comes again to reign. John Wesley. Alas! Alas! uthe kingdoms of Christ and the world" throughout all Christeudom are still "strangely and unnaturally blended together" with no present indications of a separation.
