The Way We See Them. Contentment does not come of one's possessions or of one's posi tion, but it comes of one's way of looking at these. He who realizes that he is where God wants him to Jbe, and that he has what God wants jalm to have, will be contented with his lot and hisjstore, whatever they are; but he who fails to realize this truth would never be con tented, though he were the most favored an in the world. Se lected. Tolstoi, the novelist, has a son who is known as Father Tolstoi in the Russian Orthodox Church Communion. When Pope Leo ap pealed to the Christians ot the east to aid in the union of eastern and western believers, Father Tolstoi was fascinated with the scheme, and went immediately to Rome, where he was made much of, his father's novels being popular in Italy. His Holiness informed the young man that to render efficient aid he must become a Roman Catholic and presently it was ru mored in Russia that he had done so The Russian church solemnly excommunicated Father Totstoi. This disturbed the Vatican, and out of political considerations, the young Russian was told to go home jagain. He did so, but secretly re turned to the pope, who, in order to test him, ordered him to join a Basilican cloister. The monk's habit was adopted by Father Tol stoi, but has now been cast aside, and the young man has returned to Russia, a penitent, disenchanted. The pope's scheme to absorb, the eastern church does no: enchant him now. Rev. David Utter of Salt Lake, Utah, the noted Unitarian minis ter, with a companion recently made a descent ot the Colorado river on a rafc. The raft was built of driftwood, 20 feet long, 6 feet wide, and well spiked together. The boxes, with false bottoms con taining provisions, were hailed upon the raft. They served as seats when the water was smooth and protected the provisions from the swash". The navigators got into serious trouble only once. On the first day the raft was carried into an eddy about 600 feet long and 300 feet wide and very deep. If either man 'had lost his footing there and gone "overboard, that would have been he end, because the suck would have carried him iown. They were three days on the raft, tying up at night, and made about one-half fthe distance the first day. The longer I live, the more lam satisfied of two things: First, that the truest lives are those that are cut rose-diamond fashion, with .many facets answering to the many-planed aspects of the world about them; secondly, that society is always trying in some way or other to grind us down to a single Hat surface. It is hard work to re sist this grinding-down action. Oliver Wendell Holmes. Moody and Sankey have been engaged to hold a series of meet ings in Atlanta in November. A tent sufficient to accommodate 5000 persons is to be erected near the business center of the city. At this timethe attendance upon the Cotton States and International Exposition is expected to be at its height. It is hoped that this meet ing will mark an important events in the religious history of Atlanta. Baptist and Reflector. FROM OZELLO. Our public school closed for the term on the 22d, with Prof. J. R. Walker as teacher. Bright and good work was ac complished during the five months cerm. Both pupils and teacher seemed loath to part. The term has been a quiet and j happy one. The pupils have shown a desire : to excel in their studies, that would have done credit to those cf greater years. They loved their teacher and he has done what he could for them. In return they have anticipated his every wish, and their parents have seconded his authority and supported him in his work. He has been doing a good work for the master in our Sunday school and prayer meetings, assist ed by his good wife a lad' of noble Christian character. We hope their many efforts and good example will be like bread cast upon the waters, to return after many days. Mrs. E. B. Richardson and srn, Master Eddie, cf Ocala, are mak ing an extended visit to their beau tiful home, Paradise, on the banks of the picturesque St. Martins. We very much regret the depar ture for High Springs of Miss Lizzie Pratt, one of that city's most lovely young ladies, who has been spending several months at her summer home on the coral isles. E. MORE ABOUT GAS. "Laura," said a prudent Ocala mother, not unkindly, 4it seems to mc that you had the gas turned rather low last evening." "It was solely for economy," the maiden answered. "There is no use trying to beat the gas company, my daughter. I have noticed that the shutting off of the gas is always followed by a corresponding increase of press- ure. ft Well, that lessens the waist, doesn't it, mamma dear," replied the artless girl.
