Most of us remember having familj prayers at 8 a. m., and in cold weathei fastening our buttons coming down stairs?for wenever dreamed of vex ing father and mother by being late? and then the youngest said grace, anc we sat down to a cheerful, wholesome family meal. We have changed al that. Now the mother suffers frorr "nerves" (the result of anxieties borr of "keeping up appearances,") and has her breakfast in bed. One daughtei appears late and cross, and in silence pours out her father's coffee. The resi drop in as they think fit?no prayers no grace, and only speak to complain that the eggs are cold, or that, in a toe abundant provision, "There is nothing fit to eat." A father said to me tht other day : "I have no home now my children have turned my house !-i. If 1 LI IU tt UUIC1. We middle-aged remember long, happy evenings of reading aloud and sewing round the fireside, of music, ol intelligent conversation, of simple games followed by a frugal supper, family worship?true worship?and "a kind good night to all." Now we are iu society, or imagine we are, and diue late, and all have our separate engagements. We hate sewing, we hate reading aloud?how can three or four people possibly like the same book ci (Some of us, by the way, read books we should be ashamed to hear read aloud.) What is the good of musk "only to the family?" And to think of grown-up people (oversixteen) play ing games ! As to prayers, what's tht Kcod of evening prayers ? We can'i possibly be in iu time, and if wecould we are tired, and, we add plausibly, ii does not please God for us to be bored "Intelligent conversation" is an un known quantity to the present gene ration, and we are not particular about saying good night; we are too preoccu nied to trouble much about the family All this means disintegration, ruin o home. In the old days, when a girl thought of marriage, she pictured herself th< center of a home, the light of her hus band's life, ordering well his house careful of his money, teaching his lit tie children to fold their hands to th< Father in heaven. .Now a girl think; of marriage as the simplest way of se curing an establishment, expensive dress, dinners, an audience to perforir to. She is "at home" (save the mark! only once a fortnight, aud tostratigers She votes children a nuisance, and dis misses them as far as possible from hei thoughts and from her presence; hei husband, she says, "doesn't count,' and the "Father in heaven" is an obso lete phrase. The young man used to think of hii possible wife as of something verj sacred, for whose sweet sake he kepi himself from foul thoughts and bast actions. He looked forward to his own home, a bright haven of peace ami rest, where would be unfailing lovt and sympathy, a constant incentive tc lead a noble life, and a living inspiration by his side. Now be seeks money and connections; his wife must to "smart;" she does not care for getting up in the morning, nor for sermons, nor for ideals ; when he comes in tired from business, she is probably oul shopping or paying calls; she does not watch him down the street in the morning, nor does she mend his socks, but she looks well in society ; she is not a saint, but neither does she expect him to be one. "So," he says, with a suppressed sigh, "there is always compensation." But is this home??N. Y. Advocate. Direct Prayer. I know a lady who was asked tc pray for a young man who was fai ootruu Tho ronnout. poma frnm hit own mother. My very practical friend, who was a Quaker, asked, "Hasl thou prayed for thy sou thyself?" The mother answered, "Yes." "Has1 thou prayed with thy sou?" And sbt answered, "No, I have never felt quite competent to pray In public." "Well," said the other, "I will no) pray for tby son until thou pray with him thyself, and speak to him aboul his soul; but if thou wilt do so tbit night, I will pray for him with thee." That very night that mother knell beside the inebriate form of her pooi boy, and, most tenderly and earnestly, with broken voice did she plead foi his precious 60ul. He was tht most surprised man she had evet met, and be immediately came to bit senses, wondering what had happened to his mother. And then he, too, be gan praying and the Holy Spirit brokt bis heart, and led him to Jesus, whilt she received a blessing that enabled her afterwards to lead other 9ouls tc Christ. Mothers, husbands, wives have vou been true to those nrecious ones that look into your eyes, and trust you to guide them safely, and only always do them good ? That was a beautiful message tht dying boy spoke to his sorrowing father: "VVheu I go to heaven," ht said, "papa, I will ask Jesus to lei me wait at the gate uutil you come, and then I will take you by the band and lead you up to Him and tell Him, 'This is my papa, who always told rnc about Jesus, and helped me so to liv? that I should meethim in heaven.' Christian Alliance. Bishop O. P. Fitzgerald thus ex presses his appreciation of the Metho dist press: "A Bishop can go to sonit places ; the weekly newspaper can gc to every home if the preachers will introduce it. The pastor can make a visit now and then ; his faithful coadjutor will go tifty-two times -a year harrowing the seed that he tows, deepening the good impressions he hat made. It is a sort of telephone b> which all the family can converst with one another?a claf-s meeting led by the editor. By it the revival note struck in one place echoes in ever> part of our Methodism. The good word nrinted multinlies into a million of words. The weekly family religious newspaper is, next to the ministry the most efficient agent in the work ol evangelization in modern times." The Weather Bureau gathers statistics from all available sources of the damage done by lightning, and from the report of Alex McAdie, who lias the matter in charge, it is learned thai in the United States, during May, 1894, 45 persons killed by lightning ; 34 persons were struck and severely injured, 12 barns were set on fire, with an estimated loss of $35,000 ; 37 dwellings, 4 churches and 1 school house, were struck and damaged to a greater or less extent; 58 horses and 22cows were killed. During June, 1894, 96 persons were killed and 102 severely injured; 6S barns were struck, with an estimated loss of $49,000; 49 horses, 30 cows and 15 sheep were killed; 80 dwellings were struck and more or less damaged ; 22 churces, 1 railroad depot, 1 oil tank, 1 grain elevator and 6 mills and factories were struck, the damage in the case of the eigbt last named being not less than $257,500.-?N, Y.

The toore we keep at it, the easier and more natural it becomes. ' VVe can form the habit of looking at people with love; thinking about them ' with love, speaking of them in love ' and actiDg toward them lovingly. 1 Our deeds will react upon our ' thoughts, and our thoughts and feelr ings will prompt to action.

Some preachers seem to think that . everything is in the Bible which a r lively imagination can possibly draw ' out of it.

It is generally noticeable that people who are habitually too unwell to go to church on Sunday are habitually well enough to go to their business on 1 Monday. , If some people would hoe with as I much devotion as they appear to pray in the praver-meeting, they would not I have nearlj' so much complaint of hard times to make. ; It is well to remember the fact that ; it is necessary to apply consecrated common sense to insure the success of : church work, as in secular euter1 prises. j If we are willing to be guided of God > in the line of our life-work, God will ^ make our mission clear to us.

It was the first copper penny the boys had ever seen ; one of the large coins we used to have but now almost out of circulation. George's uncle had given him the penny, and naturally he valued it very highly. He spent much time admiring its bright and shiny designs and turning it over and over in his hands, loviugly. The boys stood on the'brink of a dewp gulf just behind the old red school-house, and George had been showing his penny quite proudly to the little circle of schoolmates. What wonder if all wished they had a penny like George's? Was it strange that they envied him his pretty pocket-piece ? He was in their opinion as rich as a king. "Let me see it," said Rodny Lester, after most of the boys had held the coin in their hands and examined it. George trustingly handed his treasure to Rodney, who for a moment looked longingiy at it, then stepping away from the group he raised his hand and hurled the shining thing far down the gulf. It cut its way through the leaves of the trees below and then disappeared from sight. Cries of ''shame! shame !"went up from the boya as they realized what a mean thing their companion bad done. George's eyes Hashed as he saw the penny flyiug out of sight and felt that most likely he never would see it again, and hesprang madly at Rodney, "?"? nrnt/il* lon*or fhoil himQplf WUU was ujuuu iiiuu uamjwv... Quickly he drew back his clenched fist to strike Rodney. Then as suddenly he dropped his hand and ran into the school-house, where he cried for some time. That night, as soon as he reached home, he told Uncle John the story of his loss. "It was a mean thing for Rodney to do, George," suit! his uncle, when the boy had finished his story. "But Rodney is a poor boy ; I suppose he had never seen such a thing before, and his envy caused him to do that unkind act. You did a manly thiug in not striking him when so sorely tempted ; aud I am sure you will forgive your comrade when you think the matter over a little. George sat by the side of his uncle for a long time, looking very thoughtfully into the fire. Then he said: "Uncle John, can you get me another penny just like the other?" "Why I thiuk so, George," was the answer. And a few days after ward, Uucle Jonn nanaeu me uoy another coin, just as bright and handsome as the first. "Is this mine? Can I do just what I want to with it?" asked George earnestly, looking into his uncle's face. "Yes, my boy. It certainly is yours to do with as you see fit. At school that day George shyly slipped around to Rodney Lester's seat and placed the penny in his hand. "What's that for?" asked Rodney, with a shamed look on his face. "Because I want you to have it, Roduey," was all George said, and away he went, leaving Rodney gazing at the coin with an expression of pleasure mingled with humility on his countenance. Several times that afternoon he glanced over at George, whn rphirnprf hia look with such a happy and friendlv smile that Rodney felt more humbled tbau ever. Some time after that, Uncle John thought he would make inquiry about the penny, as George had been curiously silent regarding it. George then told bis uncle what he had done, and how kind and good his schoolmate had been since-; and not only Rodney, but every boy in the school had been a better friend to hira than ever before. Uncle John drew his nephew to his side and stroked his head lovingly, a tender light in his eyes. "You could not have put the penny to a better use, my boy," he said. The next Christmas, when George took his stocking down from its place behind the "kitchen stove, he fouud a bright dollar piece snugly tucked away in the toe. Around it was wrap6ed a paper, ou which was written in Incle John's handwriting, these words: "He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he that ruleth lhi? smirif than he that taketh a city."r Flsli That Shoot Flic*. There is a curious fish of the Indian Oceau, to which, although it has long been known to naturalists, attention has recently been called 011 account of some new observation of it9 peculiarities. It is fat and chubby, not unlike the ordinary sun fish, and seldom exceeds seven or eight inches in length. It is furnished with a short snout or muzzle, which, as we shall see, serves very much the purpose of a sportsman's gun. It is fond of insects, and its method of capturing them has suggested its name of the archer. Swimming close beneath the surface it watches the brilliant flies flitting above, and, having selected one to its fancy, suddenly thrusts its muzzle out, nn^ wifh nlmnst. unerrintr marksman-1 ship discharges several drops of water at its victim. Confused by the watery projectiles, and with its wings entangled and rendered temporarily useless, the insect falls upon the surface of the sea. and is immediately seized by Its voracious enemy. The fish is said to be able to bring down a fly in this manner from a height of two or three feet. Some of the inhabitants of Java keep these little fish in captivity for the sake of watching them practice: their archery upon fiies and ants sus-j pended above them. It is possible to meddle too muchji with our neighbors. If we can do|i them any good, make life happier or.' easier or nobler for them than it now i is, let us hasten to do it with simpli- ! city; but compulsion, insistence, I' coercion, and "management," are I only harassing. jl Love to God ia sure to bring peuce of * conscience. | ( "The way of the Lord is strength j to the upright." j] ' Dimiioml*. The diamond, one of the most beautiful products of nature, is at the same time one of its greatest mysteries. How cau the black lead of your pencil be, so to speak, own brother to the most brilliant of gems? They are both crystallized carbon, but how uulike ! The chemist who could find out the secret of turning common carbon into diamonds would be able to heap up a fortune by the side of which Monte Cristo's cave of treasures would be poor enough ; and there are chemists who do not give up the hope of some day discovering the priceless secret. Of late years the scientific study of the diamond has led into a new field of investigation. Men have found out, not how nature makes diamonds, l..?f ufhoro aha malrps them, aild that is a great step in advance. There is strong evidence of a connection of some kind between diamonds and volcanoes. In the South African diamond fields the gems are found in what are called "pipes," which are round or oval stems of a peculiar kind of rock, several acres in extent at the top, and running down to unknown depths into the earth. Near the surface this rock which is rich in iron, is disintegrated by exposure to the weather, and asHiiraes a yellowish color. It would not be exactly true to say that it holds diamonds as a pudding holds plums, but the imagination naturally forms such a simile. The precious pebbles are readily extracted from the friable rock. Deeper down the "pipe" changes character. The rock becomes com parativelyhard, blue mass, much more difficult to work. Yet it is still sprinkled through with diamonds, lying imbedded in the molds where nature made them. This blue rock has to be ~ tifnnfKaP r\f 1 roo ttij I tJ A pU3tJU IU IIIC WCttHICI f VTA VIVUIVU witb water, before it will yield up its treasures. Now it is clear from the nature and appearance of the diamond-bearing rock that it is of volcanic origin, and the'"pipes" are evidently the necks of ancient volcanoes, whose fires died out probably thousands of years ago. When we consider that tne diamond burns and is consumed at a high temperature, we cannot tbink that the gems contained in those ancient pipe* of rock were brought there from the interior of the earth while the rock was in a molten condition. It is far more probable that, under peculiar conditions of pressure and temperature, they were formed where they are now found while the rock was cooling off. It remains to be learned what the real conditions of their'formation were. It is very interesting to know that this "mother rock" of the diamouds, as it is called, bears a considerable analogy to some of the meteoric stones that fall out of the heavens. If the ancients had known that fact, they would have invented a romantic story of some celestial forge in which the god made gems; but we more n>nnti/?,t.min/iail niiwlopna aimnlv flmw pi ai;uibariuiuuv<? miw.v. ? the conclusion thatsomeof the meteorites that fall upon the earth may possibly have been ejected from its volcanoes, or from the volcanoes of some other planet, and have gone circling through space until, meeting with the earth, gravitation brought them down again. "All the H'ny Through.'' "They'9 good all the way thu," said a little negro boy to me one day, as he ottered a oasket of apples for sale. My thoughts dew at one to Queen Elizabeth's remark, when she ieit so bitterly the difference between the good promises of her counsellors and ministers of state in the beginning, and the failure and disappointment in the end. "Like a basket of apples, fair and beautiful on top, but witnered at the bottom." The little negro's words, "All the way thu," are a good motto to live by. A grocer iniating a new clerk into (he mysteries of his trade, seeing him on the first day of work filling a peck measure for a customer with potatoes of fair size from bottom to top, said : "See here, that won't do ; we keep two sizes of potatoes ! Fill the measure half way from the barrel of small potatoes, and finish from the one containing the large ones; the big potatoes sell the little ones." "I prefer," said the young man, "to fill my measures with the same quality all the way through." His honesty lost him his place, but not his reputatlou, which gained him a better. Elsewhere it was argued that the integrity which considered the customer's interest, hold good with the employer. Two boys competed at school for a prize offered for the best original essay on a given subject. One studied the subject with all the abilty of which he ' onrl than wrn(p ho.qf. WUO LU|/ttwir, uuu vuvi. f,.w?w essay possible for him. The other cribbed paragraphs and pages from eneyclopiedias and other authorities, and strung them together with his own words. The wise old professor, when the verdict was given in favor of the former, supplemented it by saying : "It is by no means the best essay, but it is honest all the way through. The other is not the production of the boy who presents it, but a mixture of bis own and other people's writing. It caunot compete as an original essay. Two farmers in the South sent bales of cotton to market to be sold. The cotton of one was sampled, and classed good all the way through. It brought its owner a price that gladdened his heart, and repaid him for his toil. The other had hid away in a coating of fair cotton an inferior article, which brought the whole down to its own valuation.

It was Christmas Day of 18U4 that Gen. Lee invited a number of Confederate generals to dine with him. His servant Ephraim, who had been his personal attendant for sometime, seemed less at his ease than usual. TUe guests appeared ; and dinner was served in the General's tent on a rough piue table, and consisted of boiled cabbage, on the lop of which rested a piece of bacon about three inches square. As Gen. Lee helped each guest, he asked him to have a slice of bacon. As the question was asked, Ephraim gave positive signs of terror. The dinner concluded with the piece of bacon undiminished in size, each guest having refused. As the guests left the tent. Gen Lee turned to Eph i m qnH qqiH in a Into vnii'o "Eph raim, we have another cabbage, have we not?" The answer was : "Yes, sah, Mass Bob. We sot an udder cabbage, sab ?" "Then, Ephraim," said the General, "save the piece of bacon to cook with that cabbage." The prompt and decisive reply was : "No, sah, ilass Bob, I cau't do that! I jis' borrow dat piece of bacon for seasonin' from a friend ober dar in Richmon', and I done gib up my parole ob honor dat I'll gib him back dat same baoon what I borrow." Gen. Lee left the tent without comment, and the bacon was returned.? Outlook. Whnt Roofm are For. All roots have little mouihs in the line fibredamoug their branches, where the food of the plant Is taken in. They are so small that you could not see them with the naked eye. The more tbere are the more likely the plant is to live. These little mouth9 drink up a fluid from the ground that goes to nourish every leaf and flower. Yes, and all the fruit you eat. And they choose just what they want, too. The apple tree mouths know just what will make applet, and the strawberry mouths just what will make strawberries. We sometimes make mistakes about what we should eat, but the plants never do. There are so many different things in the ground for the plants to eat that they cau all be supplied, and yet grow side by side. Isn't it wonderful? Some flowers will grow only iu swamps; they will not grow in any other ground, because the little mouths in the roots could not hod the right kind of food there. Celery plants will not stand drought. Cut back the young rasberry canes when they are three feet high and they will have stronger branches than if cut back when full grown. It is claimed that a strong decoction of smartweed applied once or twice a day to the cattle will keep oil" flies. The decoction of walnut leaves is anothei preventive. For the squash vine borer there is no certain remedy, but for the squash bug use Scotch 9nuff three parts and insect powder one part, well mixed, and dust the mixture on and around the vines.

If an open winier a good field of rye will furnish much feed all winter. If not desired for a grain crop it may be turned under ia the *pring and corn planted. Many farmers in the drouth-stricken regions are cutting the ruined corn with their harvesters. This is expected to make better feed than ordinary wild hay. The bundles should be well cured in the shock, then slacked in narrow ricks near the feeding place. Summer or winter we should not (try to take the eatile through on a single ration ; the addition of meal or oil cake will not only soon pay for itself, but will cause the regular food to show better results. Grass only, even in the Hush of summer pasture, does not give the best results. When the ground becomes very dry the roots of beets or turnips are apt to split with the sudden start they will make with the first good rain. The preventive is cultivation to keep the soil crumbly and as a mulch, thus preventing evaporation of the moisture that may remain iu the soil. A duck raiser says that Pekin ducks are profitable, both as market fowls and egg producers. They lay from 100 to 150 eggs each year aud by good feeding can be made to weigh five pounds when ten weeks old. A good grass run is one of the thiugs needful iu order to grow them with profit. Knowing, as we uo.tne sugui cost of raising guineas, we are constantly surprised that so few of them are found on our farms. They are adapted for the farm better than for the small poultry keeper, as they need a wide range. If mis is sufficient, they will gather almostall their own food in the fields and meadows. No doubt that one reason corn is so much used for feeding poultry and stock is that it is such a handy food, but a writer suggests that if you would lay in a good supply of other things, and put them iu at the start where they would be equally handy, you would soon get in the hai it of using them?to advantage and profit. Boiled Tongue?Have a fresh beef tongue put in to corn, for thirty-six hours. Cover with cold water, boil until tender, take out when done, skin it aud return it to the liquor ill which it was boiled, with half a cup of brown sugar, half a cup of vinegar, two dozen cloves, two dozen sliced lemons and a cup of whole raisins.

Individuality is never to become eccentricity. Personality is never to j stand for oddity.

It is customary for those who espouse the cause of the laboring man in the current industrial debate to compare the present waj3e receiver with the slave of former years. A recent editorial in the New York "Nation" represents the rank and file of modern labor organizations as under a tbralldom analogous to that of the slave. According to these partisan statements the case of the wage receiver today must be desperate indeed. He is under the thrall of the capitalist; and, at the same time, he is uuder an equal bondage to organizations of his own creation. An analogy which so jIia r?n mnun Knf h /\ f f ha I CttUllJ SCI VCO IUC put uvtu wi V4iv partisan of the wage receiver and of the capitalist, ought lo be viewed with suspicion. We are more likely to make progress in our present discussion if we cease to make so much of the analogy of the slave. Certain analogies, however, may be drawn from the anti-slavery achate of a former generation which ought to teach us useful lessons in respect to our present discuasion. The anti-slavery agitator was not a mild-mannered man. He garbled the Bible and all literature, ancient and modern, for strong statements against the oppressor. He did not hesitate to teach that the American slave-holder of his day was an embodiment of the vilest oppressions of all the ages. When as a small boy I read "Uncle Tom's Cabin," the character of Mr. Shelby gave me much trouble. I did not believe there could be so humane a slave-holder. Simon Legree was my ideal. I attributed to the exigencies of the story the apparently unreal characters such as the Shelbies and St. Clair. We uow know tbat the anti-slavery agitator did not truly represent the" character of the ordinary slave-holder of the South. He pictured bira as a monster which did not exist. The better class of slave-holders naturally reNented the false character attributed to them. They retaliated by paiuting the black abolitionists in such colors as rendered it impossible for them to re cognize themselves. The Southern "lire-eaters" were developed from a class who were made to feel tbat they were being misrepresented and lied about by those who ought to know belter. The anti-slavery agitators were among the most enlightened and humane of the Christian people of the North. The extremists of the South may be similarly characterized. Neither party tried to treat the other in a Christian way. Ageneration of young men, North and South, were systematically jeducated to misunderstand and hate each other. The result was the crime of the civil war. Did not the war abolish slavery ? Yes, but Brazil has since abolished slavery without any war. Will any man who has any knowledge of the Southern question say with any degree of confidence that the negro question is nearer a final settlement than it would have been without the war. The spirit aud temper of our industrial debate today has too close a resemblance to that of the ant'-slavery debate. The partisans of the wage earners caricature and misrepresent the spirit and temper of the employers of labor. The more humane of the employers are especially offended when they hear their class misrepresented. The offended employers retaliate by impuguing the motives of the friends of the laborers Those who advocate the cause of the wage receiver are usually good men actuated by the most i ^ u.. 1 |*/% fonf f hoi qa worilljr U1UUVCO. j uc law vum. ov large a proportion of the community are so utterly iudifferent, and appear to remain voluntarily blind to the real situation tends to induce strong language and exaggerated statements. If only the indifferent were effected by the agitation all would be well. But the danger is that the medicine will be taken by the wrong man. It was the most sensitive and humane of the slave-holders who were most affected by the anti-slavery agitator. Our danger is that the most sensitive and humane of the capitalist class may become arrayed agai list the most sensitive and humane of leaching classes, and thatthose who ought to co-operate for a common end which both see as desirable may become leaders of hostile and destructive forces. I believe that this is our only real danger. I believe that there is not a particle of danger of a bloody revolution, except for the danger that good men will continue to misunderstand and misrepresent each other.?Jesse Macy, in Minneajiolis Congregationlist. Things That "Draw." Welcoming smiles. Outstretched hands. Prayers that are prayers, and not speeches. Songs that are praises, and not "performances." Preaching that deals with the love of Christ, rather than with the teachiuga of modern theolgy. A church building where the most comfortable pews are KiveHto the infirm because they need them, rather than to the rich because they can pay well for them. A church membership made of persons who are more interested in the souls oi men man iu men uuun accounts, and more devoted to their prayer meeting than to the card table. "Anu I," said Jesus, "if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto nie." The church that lifts up Christ Himself as the greatest of all attractions is the Church. It is the height of impudence fora man to ask God to help those he has wronged, so long as he holds ou to a dollar of his ill-gottou wealth. People who are horrified to see a Bible marked with a pencil, view with complacency their own moth eaten volumes desecrated by the rust of ages. Zucharias wasstruck dumb for want of faith. Perhaps this explains the lifelong silence of some Christians ou the subject of religion. The Church is ready to look after th e sinners in the slums, the moment it is understood that the will not have to step down and out of society to do it. If you want more light on the Bible live up to the light you already have. Said a friend to the writer : "I have learned more about my Bible since I have been trying to live up to it, thau I did all my life before." If you are cold you will realize it;, but if you ate freezing you will feel comfortable enough to go to sleep. It is so in the Uhristiau life. wnen we begin to get cold we are painfully eonscions of it; but when we get so far from the Sun of Righteousness that our hearts are nearly frozen, we are conscious only of a comfortable drowsines. The Sunday school is a good thing in its place, but it was never iutended for mother's place. There are mothers who put their babies in Sunday school just as they put eggs in an inubator. Quit dreaming about what you uieau to do, and go at once to doing it.
