HELP WORTH MORE THAN PITY. From the Child1* Own Magazine. I have seen a blind man walking Along the busy street; I have heard the people talking As they watched his shambling feet; I have marked their words of pity As they saw him pass along Through the overcrowded city, 'Mid the ever busy throng; And I've seen the bright-eyed schoolboy Leave his brothers at their play To help the sightless stranger Across the busy way. Ah ! the pity was not worthless, Though it lent no helping hand, But that little help outvalued All the pity in tne land. I have seen the little orphan, Left without a mothers care, I have heard the words of Borrow That the neighbors had to spare; I have known them say, 'The poor house Is just meant for snch as she And (though very sorry for her) "Well, she has no claim on me." And I've seen the toiling widow, With children half a score, Take the little lonely orphan To her hospitable door. There were nftv folks who pitied, There was only one to aid, But the one excelled the fifty As the sun excels the shade. I have heard the schoolboy sighing O'er his iessons home from school; I have seen him vainly trying To master some new rule; * I have marked the words of pityThat his brother's lips supplied, And I've seen the dewy teardrop That yet remained undried. Then I've seen his mother gently Take his blunder-covered slate, And with loving effort help him Make his crooked answers straight. That pity, though a brother's, Was forgotten in a day; But that loving help of mother's Will never pass away. I have seen a little two-year-old Stand crying bv a brook, And I've markea a country maiden Deep buried In a book, I have known her rise up qnickly, Lay the treasured work aside, Lift the little fellow gently O'er the water clear ana wide: And I've seen the merry sanshine Light up his free at last, Which, if she had only pitied, Would have still been overcast. Ob! let pity lead to action, For the world is full of need, There are many eyes that water, There are many hearts that bleed. There are wounds that all want binding, There are feet that go astray, There are tears all hot and blinding. That onr hands can wipe away; For the blind man on the causeway, The orphan with his fears, The schoolboy in bis troubles, And the baby in its tears. Are all like a thousand others Whom to help, if we but try. We shall "scatter seeds of kindness For the reaping by and by." Let us ever act as brothers, Ne'er with pity b8 oontent, Always doing good to others Both in action and intent. Though the pity may be useful, 'Tie butjittle if 'tis all. And the smallest piece of needed help Is better than it all. ? r i fiumotous fepartraettt. THE LITEST HATCHET STORY. Away at tbe southern end of Fourth Avenue lives two promising, youngsters, whose father, being an upright and conscientious gentleman, has an enduring admiration for George Washington and his little hatchet. Of course, he took his hopefuls on his knees, and told to them, as he trotted them to Barnaby Cross, the story of the evergreen and eternal cherry tree. In the course of events and time he bethought himself to make his two cherubs a present of a hatchet each, and in the course of events and time he discovered a cut on his cherished dwarf pear tree* Suspecting the culprits and calling his posterity to him, "Boys," he said, frowning gloweringly, "who cut this pear tree ?" And then lie waited in suspense to see whether he had another Washington in his family. Posterity No. 1.?"I did it, pa, wif my little hatchet I cannot tell a lie." Posterity No. 2.?"No, he didn't pa; I cut it wif my hatchet; and I'm the one 'at can't tell no lie." No. 1.?"You didn't; I cut it myself." No. 2.?"Whoopee! You didn't do no such thing!" No. 1.?"Yes, I did pa, for there wasn't but one pear tree, and we drawd straws to see which one 'ould cut it, and?" No. 2.?"And I drawd the short straw and cut the?" No. 1.?"Ain't you ashamed ? I drawd the short straw and cut the tree, and you got mad and went off and cut up our new carriage." Pa.?"The " No. 2.?"Oo-ooh! I didn't do no such thing! He cut it his-se'f, pa." No. 1.?"I d-i-d-n-'-t, now." Na 2.?"You're a li? a fibber!" And then the fond father took his posterity each by the nape of the neck and marched them to the carriage-house. The mournful ruin that had been wrought there was mournful to contemplate, and the sounds that went up from the carriage-house excited the wonder of the neighbors and the chaotic cachinations of the chickens for two squares around. ?- - The father has confiscated the hatchets, and now declares that too much George Washington will demoralize any family. ? i t&~ We often wondered why girls married. An Austin young lady, upon the subject says: "Well, no, I don't know as I'd marry for money alone, but if a man had plenty of money allied to a sweet disposition, and a moustache that curled at both ends, and nice blue eyes and a respectable profession, and his father was rich and his mother and sisters aristocratic, and he wanted to marry me, and would promise to let me have my own way in everything, and keep me liberally supplied with coin, and have a nice furnished house with a big piano in it, and would give me two diamond rings, and would pay my dry goods, milliner's and dressmaker's bills without frumbling, and I really and truly loved im?I wouldn't consider his money any drawback to the match." The Colt.?A short time ago a little boy went with his father to see a colt. He patted the colt's head and made quite a fuss over it,, until finally the stableman told him to be careful that the colt did not turn round and kick him. When the little chap went home, his mother asked him what he thought of the colt "I like him pretty well," was the reply. "He's real tame in front, but he's awful wild behind." Raibing a Club.?"I should like to have you raise a club," said a 7x9 book-canvasser to a daughter of Erin, as he stood on the front step trying to talk her to death on the subject of the "Extinction of the Tribes of the Seventh Century." "I will," said Biddy, as she reached around behind the door, "but bad luck to your picture if you are lingering around here when I get it raised." The Doctor's Answer.?A physician in a country town, who had been annoyed by numerous questions concerning the condition of a patient, was stopped, while on his busy rounds, by a man with the old question, "How's M.?" "Ill," replied the physician. "Does he keep his bed ?" "Of course he does. You don't suppose he's fool enough to sell his bed when he's so ill, do you ?" I?- A country shopkeeper said: "Here, my friend, those balls of butter I bought of you last week all proved to be just three ounces short of a pound." And the farmer innocently answered: "I don't see how that could be, for I used one of your pound bars of soap for a weight." A colored baby fell from an attic window the other day, and the mother tells the story thus: "Dere dat child was coming down feet fust, wid every chance of being killed, when de Lawd, he turned him over, de chile struck on his head, and dere wasn't so much as a button flew off." fUadittg to* thr JWrhath. OONDUOTKD BT REV. ROBERT EATHAN. [Original.] ABUSIVE PREACHING. Ministers of the gospel, who ought to be as wise as serpents, are not always remarkable for their common sense. One way that some preachers undertake to evangelize the world is by continually, in their pulpit exercises, attempting to prove that all who- hold opinions different from what they hold are certainly wrong. Every sect but their particular sect is rotten to the core, and unworthy the name of Christian. To say the least of this, it is very foolish. It is difficult to get men of the world?unregenerated sinners?to understand how there can be so much division in the household of faith, and still be but one faith, one God and father of all the family. That general would be the veriest fool who would cause it, in any way, to be circulated in the camp of the enemy, that the officers and men, composing his forces, were quarreling among themselves. It is hard to see how such an army could be efficient, either in offensive or defensive operations. How can the Church be efficient in bringing men to Jesus, when one part is set in deadly array against every other part? The theme of the Bible is Christ and him crucified. Ministers should be cautious in the abuse which they heap upon the devil. Our Saviour, who was more beset by the devil than any of the human family ever was or ever will be, did not abuse him. His severest rebuke was "get thee behind me, Satan." It is hard to see how we are to prove that we are right if everybody else is wrong. In nine cases out cf ten there is just as much probability that we are wrong as they. Admitting that our opponents are wrong, it is ararralv nnssible to convert a man from his error after we have abused him for a fool or a knave, or for both. * * lOriginal ] SINCERITY. Many persons think that it makes no sort of difference what we believe, provided we are sincere. While many are willing to adopt this theory with regard to religion, there are but few persons who dare adopt it with respect to their secular affairs. The theory which teaches that it matters not what one believes, provided he is sincere, ignores the fact that there is a difference between truth and error. Rather, according to this theory, there is no falsehood, no wrong, when there is sincerity. Such a theory, if reduced to practice in all the departments of life, would rain the world in a few weeks. Sincerity is a good thing, but it is far from being the best thing. Men are just as sincere i in doing evil as they are in doing good. Paul was sincere when he persecuted the Church even unto the death of many of its members. Paul the Apostle of the Gentiles was no more sincere than Saul the persecutor of the Church of God. Paul the preacher thought he was right So did Saul the persecutor. We may ask. was there no difference between Paul be fore his conversion and Paul after his conversion ? His sincerity before his conversion was as marked as it was after. In this respect there was no change. His misguided zeal was just as great in tearing down the walls of Zion as his sanctified sincerity, after his conversion, was in building up what he had before torn down. Those who claim that all that is necessary in order to please Qod is that we be sincere in our religious beliefe and in our mode and manner of worship, should remember that we are so constituted that we can be as sincere in believing a; falsehood as we can in believing the truth, and that we can be as sincere in sacrificing our children to' cruel monsters, which we may call gods, as we can be in offering to the true God the sacrifice of a broken and contrite spirit. It seems ridiculous to say that he who sincerely believes a falsehood is as certainly in the path of rectitude as he who buys the truth and sells it not. So far as sincerity is concerned, there is no difference between the most degraded pagan and the most illustrious Christian. Sincerity in wrong-doing never shields any one from the punitive effects which follow the transgression of law. He who is in the wrong road will not reach the place aimed at because he is sincere in his error. The Jamestown colony thought they had found gold. They were told by one who knew that they were deceived. In their intense sincerity they continued to dig up the ground and store aw&v ton after ton of it in their ship. Their sincerity had no effect upon the dirt and rocks. It was found, when taken to England, that there was no gold in it. The result was, the infant colony was partially ruined. Neither sincerity nor insincerity can change the nature of anything. That individual who insincerely accepts the religion of the Bible (if such a thing be possible), does not nullify the truth. Neither does he who sincerely believes a lie, change a lie into the truth. It is the duty of all to buy the truth, to embrace the truth, and practice the truth. We must first be right, then sincere. >. PERIL FROM THE PULPIT. The habit of perpetually mentioning the theories of unbelievers,, when preaching the gospel, gives a man the appearance of great learning, but it also proves bis want of common sense. In order to show the value of wholesome food it is not needful to proffer your guest a dose of poison, nor would he think the better of your hospitality if you did so. Certain sermons are more calculated to weaken faith than to render men believers. They resemble the process through which a S>or, unhappy dog is frequently passed at the rotto del Cane at Naples. He is thrown into the gas, which reaches up to the spectators' knees, not with the view of killing him, but as an exhibition. Lifted out of his vapory bath, he is thrown into a pool of water, and revives in time. Such an animal is not likely to be a verv efficient watch-dog or pursuer of fame ; and when nearers, Sunday after Sunay, are plunged into a bath of sceptical thought, they may survive the experiment, but they will never become spiritually strong, or practically useful. It is never worth while to make rents in a garment for the sake of mending them, nor to create doubts in order to show how cleverly we can quiet them. Should a man set fire to his house because he has a patent extinguisher which would put it out in no time ? He would stand a chance of one day creating a conflagration, which all the patents under heaven could not easily extinguish. Thousands of unbelievers have been born into the family of scepticism by professed preachers of the gospel, who supposed that they were helping them to faith. Young men, in many instances, have obtained their first notions of infidelity from their ministers?they have sucked in the poison, but refused the antidote. The devil's catechists in doubt have been the men who were sent to preach "Believe, live." This is a sore evil, and it seems hard to stay it; and yet ordinary common sense ought to teach ministers wisdom in Buch a matter. Life and death hang upon the question of truth or falsehood. If lies be propagated, or truth be clouded, the watchmen of the Lord will have to give in their account for permitting it.?Spurgeon. and BLACKBERRY WINE. About a year ago we wrote a somewhat lengthy article upon the manufacture of wine from the native blackberry, or dewberry, properly speaking, which article was extensively copied in all parts of the South. Many of our subscribers and acquaintances, taking our suggestions as a guide, made large and small quantities, with varying success. The season will soon arrive and we urge the manufacture of a moderate quantity of this wholesome beverage, which in hot weather possesses also great medical virtues. It is, par excellence, a poor man's wine. In the briefest possible manner we repeat directions, which, if followed with reasonable exactness, will give a wine superior in quality to any imported or native grape product. Pick only ripe fruit, the riper the better. Remove all leaves, stems and other trash as if preparing the berries for the table. Take any large kettle (not an iron one,) fill it half full of berries, adding water enough to cover. Heat gradually to a gentle boil. Have a beg, made of coarse muslin and a clean whisky barrel with one end out, or a large tub will answer. Pour the cooked berries and juice into the bag, placing it in the barrel or tub. Squeeze by wringing till as much as possible of the juice has been extracted. Return the juice to the kettle, add three ,to four pounds " - - -? _11__ 1 4 or sugar ror eacn gajjon 01 juice, uenb ujc whole to just a boil and clarify it as if it were syrup. Be careful not to scorch. When finished, empty into a clean, sweet whisky barrel, placed in the position it is to occupy during the fermenting period, and repeat the foregoing directions till the barrel is entirely full. Now take the "pomace" or pressed berries and cook them again, subjecting them to heavy pressure while extracting the juice. Clarify as before and keep this in some convenient vessel to use for replacing the waste of fermentation. The barrel must be kept full, the bung being left out for the escape of impurities. When fermentation has ceased, bung tightly, but have a small gimlet-hole in the bung, filled, with a small plug, which should occasionally be removed for a short time for the escape of gas. Rack off and bottle on some clear, cool day in the winter and the work is dona The spigot Bhould be placed in the barrel before the juice is introduced and great care should be taken not to disturb or shake the barrel at any time, even, while drawing ofF. The wine will keep for an indefinite period, and will grow better with age.?Our Home Journal. EXPERIMENTS^ SUGGESTED. Practical knowledge is only to be acquired by actual experiment, and it is the only kind of any real value. If all soils were exactly alike, having the same exposure and protection, subject to the same climate, and the same amount of rainfall, at exactly the same dates, farming would at once rise to the digainf on oTort. or>ionr>0 Onn apt nf PYi?pri ments anywhere would be the foundation for all farm operations qf the same kind eveiywhere. The vast body of farmers, so far as concerned their own avocation, would become mere machines, or even less in the social scale. Brains would be of no value, and the fool of the family would do as well as the genius on the farm. Fortunately, however, the soil is various and must be treated with brains, or it fails to produce. Business men never trust any one until inquiries have been made into his standing and his ability to fulfill his promises. Farmers, however, never think of inquiring into the character of the land they are going to trust their seed to. They say to themselves, "That's land, and this is seed; let's try them together." It has been asserted that fertilizers are all washed down into the subsoil by rains, and are lost?if so, why is the subsoil always poor? An experiment, easily made, would settle this question forever. It is the practice with many to put on too much lime, hoping to create plenty of plant food. But they nroata tnn mnnh nnrl t.hft omn crnpft to stems and leaves at the expense of the grain. Experiment would teach a valuable leseon here. The question of deep or shallow plowing and cultivation is yet a debatable one; why not experiment?prqve that which is good aad hold fast to it? Light and heavy seeding; early apd late sowing; home grown or foreign grown seed ; seed grown north or south of us ; seed gathered when half ripe or when wholly matured; subsoiling, and even whether it pays to feed starving fields as. well as to keep stock always growing?are all open questions. Whyisthisso? Why have six thousand years of ceaseless tillage taught us nothing ? And are we to go on six thousand years more in the same style ? As every farm is, in a measure, sui generis, so must every farmer be its genius genius loci. Don't trust a man till you know him. Don't trust your land till you know it. Experiment, dig, pry, and inquire at every opportunity; don't quarrel with a family you are not acquainted with, and, above all things, don't bury money in a hole without a bottom.?S. Rufds Mason, in Ruial New Yorker. TREATMENT OF LAND. No land that is ill treated ever yet produced well, no more than ill-treated stock will thrive, increase and be profitable. As the object in treating land well is keeping up its producing capacity, J would mention first, as a means to this end. nlouehiner in the rierht stage. Land to be kept lively, should never, in any case, be ploughed wet. If ploughed in this condition it will become cloady, and divested of much of its life-giving properties. Especially will this be the case if dry weather follows. The right stage at which to plough land is when it is sufficiently dry to crumble up nicely when turned over. Again, land should not only not be ploughed when wet, but should not be disturbed in any way, either by wagoning over it, or allowing stock to run upon it when in this condition. Far better had the farmer lay idle from his ploughing for a few days, and in the case of his stock, provide himself with sufficient roughness in the fall so as to be prepared to remove them from the fields when wet weather prevails. Next, as an essential means of keeping up the producing capacity of the land, is that of interchange of "crops and manuring. No land, however rich and productive it may be, will remain so, that is successively run in the same crop. To rightly keep up land, crops should be frequently changed, while all the worn out portions should receive as much fertilizing material as is possible to place upon them. How "much might this latter means be enlarged and applied if farmers would only take the time to do so. But the argument of most farmers is, it is impossible to make a general use of manures as the area requiring it far exceeds the supply on hand. True, the supply is often less than, what is really needed, but use what is and observe this rule in its application: Go as far as possible with each year's supply to give a good coating. Next year begin where you left off the previous year and apply in the same way. Keep up this plan and you will be surprised to see in three or four years how much land you have manured, while you will be doubly compensated in the large yield of the land thus treated.?Prairie Farmer. New Process of Tanning.?Mr. M. E. Doty of Des Moines, Iowa, has patented a new process of tanning leather, which it is | claimed saves time and labor, and produces a better result. In place of immersing the hides iu tannic acid liquid to remain in the vats from three to six months, as heretofore [ required to produce good oak tanned leather, the hides by Mr. Doty's process are simply covered by an adhesive paste by means of a brush, or dipping, and then hung up to dry. It is claimed that good shoe and harness leather can thus be made in ten days. The adhesive paste used is composed of liquid tannin, or extract of oak or hemlock bark thickened with flour, or what is known as "shorts," to which is added a small portion of salt. The hide is then hung up in a room adapted to drying in the shade by natural atmosphere. When the paste on the suspended hide becomes dry, it is moistened again with tannin liquid, the paste being used as a medium of conveying tannin until the hide is thoroughly tanned. t ? ^ * Cubeb Berries for Catarrh.?A new remedy for catarrh is crushed cubeb berries smoked in a pipe, emitting the smoke through the nose; after a few trials this will be easy to do. If the nose is stopped up so that it is almost impossible to breathe, one pipeful will make the head as clear as a bell. For sore throat, asthma and bronchitis, swallowing the smoke effects immediate relief. It is the best remedy in the world for offensive breath, rendering it pure and sweet. Sufferers from that horrid disease, ulcerated catarrh, will find this remedy unequaled, and a month's use will cure the most obstinate esse. A single trial will convince any'one. Eating the uncrushed berries is also good for sore- throat and all bronchial complaints. After smoking, do not expose yourself to cold air for at least" fifteen minutes. - Baby shows are the fashion now, but as long as mothers continue to nurse their little ones with laudanum or other opiates, they cannot expect their Babies to look bright. If your Baby needs medicine get a good aud harmless one, such as Dr. Bull's Baby Syrup. 45 Years Before the Public. THE GENUINE DR. C. MoLANE'S ? ; !
