IT LITTLE SKEPTIC. BY BIBCH ABNOLD. Two sparkling eves looked up into mine, And two erimsou lips, like ruby wine, Maid, "Auntie, tell me a story true, 'Bout lining folks, not farie, will you?" And then climbing up to Auntie's knee, Mr Birdie whispered, "'Bout you and me," "W bat could I do with that coaxing smile, Beaming entreat v in my face the while; But do, as she asked, tell a story true. Baring for heroine "me and youV" " Once on a tinte;" I began; "Oh hoi's "Auntie, don't tell ma the story so. For that's the way the story books tell 'Bout the fairies, in dingle and dell; And I'm so tired of watching for 'em. Beneath bud and grass, and little stem.

There isn't a single fairy here; Aud the world's hollow, and my doll's dust. : And there isn't a thing that I can trust!" A mile crept over my lips at thought. Of Birdie's setting the world at naught, And that six short years from sorrow free.

"Alas!" murmured I, the smile all gone, "You have caught the age's doubting tone. Ami complain because you cannot see. "You doubt every simple mystery, Believing not in the things on high, "' Because yeur eyes eaunot pierce the sky." 'If we cannot trace the hand of God, In all His workings beneath the sod, To tell wy and hots the flowerets fair Blossom with tints that are rich and rare, Hare we reason to doubt that flowers bloom? Then question the truths of Uod as soon." "Wli.v, Auntie dear what is it you say I don't quite know all your words to-day," Mr Birdie asked with wondering eyes, ' And her lips half parted in surprise '"l is this 1 would say, to make it clear, He'er doaht there are fays an4 fairies here: No lurking fairy abides the hour.

V A HULK. 1 HEN", with many a groan and flood ot tears Edith told her mother the story, sparing her self iu no particular. "You did very wrong Edith," was all the mother could say, although her heart was sorely tried. "She is very sensitive, and the least thing affects her. Her wrong was at most a negative one, and yours positive. . If she should never recover, you " "Never recover!" screamed Edith "But she must. I should " 'Ofay, my daughter," said the mother, calmly. "Do not add impiety to yonr ' Kins. She is iu the hands of a higher Power than we.' If He wills it, she will remain with Us ; if not, site will only have gone where she will have escaped a great neai ot sin ana guttering;. Edith went to the bedside, and pas- sionately repeated little Minute's name, coupling its fervent utterance with piteous appeal for forgiveness; but the tones awakened no response save a va cant stare of the large blue eyes, now so blank in the fever of delirium. Then, a moment later, the lips moved, aud said : "Sweet sister, Edith, please forgive me.. . You do love me if I was naughty?' i All that dreary night and the next day . Edith watched bv the bedside of her lit tle sister, asking her in tones of entreaty to no torgiven; Diit tne levered lips pressed so often gave no response. The next night Edith was so weary with constant watching, that iter mother in sisted ou her retiring, saying that Min nie was mn en netter, ana would proDa- Dly he quite comtortabie in the morn . ins. .But alas for poor Edith I no more t - I .-" ... n hours. in her levered dreams, Minnie , was ever by her side: the same sweet faced, soft-toned Minnie, but with a sad tearful, tenderly reproachful counte nance. Two or three limes Edith awoke with heavy sobs swelling np from her heart, only to sink again into the same vmeasv slnmner. w hen she at last lairly awoke from the s-leep, that in the latter part of the night had been heavy, and almost a stupor, the bright sun was shining into her window, and was al ready tiuite hizh in the grayish wiutrv sky. Startled bv the lateness of the hour, Edith sprang np and hurried on her clothes, all the time wondering how the little sufferer was, and praying that she might be conscious, so she could again hear those sweet tones .in accus tomed conversation, jtnd hear them lisp out. a forgiveness. In the hall Edith met her mother, and asked, in tones that were painfully and passionately earnest, how Minnie was. The voice of the mother seemed singu larly sweet to Edith, as she replied : "She is out of pain this morning, and is sleeping quietly. Come; let us go and see our darling." Edith's heart liounded with delight, and her step was elastic as she started with her mother. But a suden mis giving and faintness stole over her as she entered c room, and saw that Alin nUVs portrait, and the mirror, and the table ifl the corner where her toys were, sind the little garble statues on the man tle, were all draped in white. Then her uiother led her gently to tlie bedside ami folded down the white sheet that lay over the little pale face. Beautiful even in death, was the pure, sweet little face now silent and placid. A few moss-rosebuds were grasped in the tiny hands, aud arrayed in the ring lets that nevermore would be twined around loving figure. A moment only she stood gazing; and then, like a cruel, remorsiess flood, came the memory of the last words little Min nie had spoken to her. "Please, Editii, say yon forgive me before you go. I am so sorry." And then came the memory of her own heartless, cruel answer. For an in-s stunt her brain reeled, then the warm, blood gnshed from her mouth and nos trels, and she fell heavily to the floor. When she returned to consciousness she was lying weak and helpless upon . her couch, and familiar faces were grouped around. She shuddered when -he thought of the scene that left such a piercing impress upon her memory, and closed her eyes in anguish. Later in the day when she asked how soon Minnie's funeral was to take place, they told her that the snow was lying deep upon her grave, and that she nerseit had been un conscious for three weeks, and had been given up by all. Jt was a long time before Edith was again around the house the blooming girl she had formerly been; but,. when the time did come there was a sweetness with her bloom that had never been seen before, and a soft grace that become her well, even though it had never rested there before. And, best of all, those days were bles sed ones, in at least one respect; for l hoy humbled the proud Edith, and severed her thoughts from worldly things to rivet them to heavenly affairs. She sometimes shudders as she thinks of the past days, and reflects at what a dear price her salvation was purchased the death of little Minnie but reflects, that, as in the case of him who ascended Calvary, the greatest often suffer lo so cure the salvation of the least. 9t-WtUm AGRICULTURAL.

Sacramento Union June, 1. Toads as Insf-ct Exterminators. Dr. Harris, the late entomologist, re marked some 20 years ago that he sup posed the odor of the squash bog ( Cor ens tristis) would protect it from the toad ; and to test the matter he offered one to a gravelooking Bufo under a cab bage. He siezed it "eagerly, but spit it out Instantly, reared up on his hind legs and put his front feet on top ot his head for an instant, as if in pain, and then dis appeared across the garden in a series of the greatest leaps I ever saw a toad make. Perhaps the bug bit the biter .Not satisfied with this I hunted np an other toad, which lived under the pi azza and always sunned himself in one place in the grass, and offered him a squash bug, which lie took anq swallow ed, winking in a very satisfied manner. Twenty other fine bugs i'olloweed the first, in a few moments, with no diffi culty or hesitation in the taking or the swallowing, though from the wriggling and contortions it appeared their cor ners did not set well within. The stock of bugs being then exhausted, I found a colony of smooth black larvre on a white birch, each about three quarters of an inch long, and fed him over 100 of them. Touching one of them with the end of a straw, it would coil around it, and then when shaken before him he would seize and swallow it, at first eagerly, but with diminished zest as the number increased, until it beeanie necessary to rub the worm against his lips for some time before lie could decide about it. He would then take it and sit with his lips ajar for a short time, gathering strength and resolution, and then swallow by a desperate effort. There is no telling what the number or result would have been, as the dinner bell rang as the 101st disappeared, and by the close of the meal he had retired to his hole, nor did he appear for four days in his siin.njng place. Entomologist Wool.Growing ix CA,i-i'ftRMA, In the years 1852 aud IS?, a. gretH many sheep were driven across the plains, from the Western States to California. They were for mutton, and sold there at prices ranging generally between $7 and $16 each. Mutton, however, did not long maintain these prices. The immense number of sheep raised in the State, aud the continued introduction of large flocks from the States and Ter ritories east of California, very shortly brought the stock of mutton-sheep up to the demand of the butcher, and threat ened, at no distant day, to reduce the prices below the cost of production. Many of those engaged in the sheep business had foresight enough to antici pate this; and. concluding that the soil and climate of California were favora ble to the growth of a superior, as well as an inferior, description of sheep, set about introducing sheep that would be valuable for tlieir wool as well as for tlieir mutton. Spanish merinos were introduced from the Eastern. States, and also from Australia, ami stJil at extreme prices. In less than, a,lvi)tVdozen years, everv flock had a,n, tnfusion of improved blood. Under the now impetus, wool growing uvide such gigantic strides as soon ca,st the operations of the missiona ries into the shade. A glance at the fol lowing table will show how rapid aud steady had been the increase in the pro duction of wool since 1854. California produced : Year, Lift, of irfinl Year. him or'tcool.

The great drougt of 1864 caused the wool clip of 1805 to be smaller than that of the preceding year. Xot withstand ing an occasional step backward, on ac count of severe droughts, the Increase in the production of wool in California compares favorably witli that of other couutries. In Australia, the wool clip increased from 53,000,000 pounds in 1850 to 158,000,000 pounds in 1800 equal to an average Increase of twenty per cent, per year while in California, it lias, in that time increased from 2,378,250 pou nils 10 15,400,171 pounds or an increase of about fifty-five per cent, yearly. Wool growing already occupies a lcading po sition among California pursuits, the value of last yeai's clip amounting to $0,072,275. From "Slieep-Far.aiuu in California," in the On-rUtnd Mmtthlji for Jtnex RELIGIOUS NEWS. A lady once asked a little deaf and dumb girl, by writing on a slate, "What is prayer ?" ' Xow this little girl had never said a prayer, for she could not speak ; aud she had never heard a prayer for she was quite deaf: yet you will find that she well knew what prayer was. She took a pencil and wrote on the slate this reply : "Prayer is the wish of the heart. At the recent union meeting of the religious societies of Harvard College, Rev. Edward E. Hale said that the two greatest miracles of modern times are the grand success of the Methodist movement which saved Protestantism to the world, and the American Board of Foreign Missions, which is fulfilling Christ's command to preach the Gospel to every creature; both of which move ments originated in the consecration of collage student, The religious power which our colleges are exerting can never be fully estimated, but such ex amples are enough to show how widely the waves of their influence rolls over the world to bless it. The hew Methodist Bishops, it is sta ted, have chosen their residences (under order of the General Conference relat ing thereto) as follows : Bishop Bowman, St. ixmis. " Harris, Chicago. " Foster, Cincinnati. " Wiley, Boston. Merrill, St. Paul. Andrews. Omaha, or Council Bluffs. " Haven, Atlanta. Peck, San Francisco. The Methodist camp meetings have been opened in various parts of the coun try, one commenced at Oak Corners, is. y., last week. Thk conflict which has long been kept up between the Evangelical and Rationalistic elements in the French Protestant Church, has at last culmina ted in the withdrawal of the latter. A dispatch from Paris, of the 14th, says : "J he Protestant synod, now in session here, has just passed through an unusn ally animated discussion, which resulted in a schism. M. Uuizot, the leader ot orthodox party, maintained the authori ty of the Scriptures, while Kev. 31. Coquerel, who is at the head of the liber al party, justihed certain divergencies relative to the divinity and resurrection of Christ. ; The liberals, demurring at the action of the orthodox majority. withdrew from the Srnod." Schism in itself is tc be deplored, but it is far bet ter to lose than to retain an element which is hostile to the fundamental principles of the Gospel.- Xow that those who rejected and impugned the divinity ot Christ and kindred truths have voluntarily withdrawn, we trust that the little band which remains for it is but small will enjoy greater spirit ual prosperity. Those who have main tained fidelity to the truth among all blandishments and opposition which thev have had to encounter in France, have a strong claim upon the prayers and sympathy of evangelical Christians everywhere. The Christian people of Brooklyn have made another noble addition to their be nevolent institiitions.in the erection of a Protestant Orphan Asylum, designed to accommodate 500 children. The build ing is of the modern Gothic style, three stories high (including mansard), and basement, the entire front 185 feet in length, and depth 80 feet. It stands on a plot of ground about 335 feet in length, which cost the society, in l8o7, ;il,W0. The building, grading the grounds and fencing, complete, cost a little over $200- 000, of w hich about f 180,000 has been paid, and there is now in the treasury (and promised) sufficient to pay the balance required for that purpose. Some ten or twelve thousand dollars were re quired to equip the institution thorough ly and meet the expenses of the current year, which win be speedily furnished.

A Crown of Golden Thorns. Again it is proposed by the admirers of the Pope; to present him with a testimonial of their homage, and this time it takes the shape of a crown of thorns to be made of gold. There is something, at first, itnnres-. sively shocking in the idea of likening the Pope of Rome to the crucified. Son ot God. To those of ns who look uoon the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, as the Incarnation of Infi nite excellence, and regard the Christ ot jiiuea as tne.iJiyne. Redeemer, the proposal to put upon, t Uead of anv man an emblem even of what was in dc rision the distinction of our Lord, is the nignest style ot blasphemy, we would have every mark of contempt with which he was mocked, remembered as part of the load of reproach he endured for ns; aud as in his humiliation he trod the wine-press alone, we would not bestow on anything by which it might be signified that he takes the place, or shares the work of Christ alone. That work stands by itself, tne annais oi tne world. There lfcas been but one Christ. Jesus only wwe a crown of thorns. His life and hi,s. djeath are not reproduced iu the life aud death of any man, least of all in tho royal po tentates w ho dwell iu the palaces of the Vatican and farefsumptously everv dav. It is just in character with the life of him who styles himself the vicar of t nnst, nis repyesetitative on earth, that it is np.vy proposed to honor him with a crown of thorn and make those thorns of gold-. We have never heard that the popes pretended to represent Christ in his life of self-denial and snfterinw. nnr that they who follow the Pope desire to see mm HKe tne Master in his humilia tion. Once a year he makes a show of wasning tne ieet ot paupers prepared for the ceremony, but no one ever heazd ot his teet being soiled and weiux as.

Yet it is just like, the religion of the Pope in its resemblance to the religion of the crucified Christ. Nowhere does the contrast force itself so powerfully upon the mind as in Rome itself. th seat and summit of its chief excellence! and glory. One never associates the kingdom of Christ on earth with earthly splendor. He who said, "My kingdom is not of this world," was so meek and lowly that the pomp of a chariot and the robes of royalty and the applatises'of men, would never seem in keeping with his humility. We think of him always as the "poor wayfaring man of grief." And when his wandering life.of homeless poverty was coming to a close, wo think of him as traveling to his doom with that derisive crown of thorns piercing h s head, the reed sceptre in his hand, his head bowed in agony, aud his form i lining unuer tne burden of his cross, loput a crown of gold thorns on thtj head of Pius IXth, is a bitter satire which his friends have lieen left in their folly to inflict upon him, that all the world may see and say, "So this is the man who was declared to be infallible like unto the Infinite, and claiming to be the vloar of Christ 13 now by his own friends crowned in unintended derision with gold instead of thorns." This is the latest act in the Pupal drama. -V. 1". Observer.' 1 PR.ACTTCAL HINTS.

Dr. allsaj's: It is a very great and mis chievous mistake for persons, old or young especially children and feeble 'or sedentary persons to bounce out of peu tne moment they wake up; ail our instincts shrink from it, aud fiercely kick against it. Fifteen or twenty min utes spent in gradually waking up, after the eyes are opeued, and in turning over and. stretching the limbs, do as much good as sound sleep, because these ope rations set the blood in motion by de grees, tending to equalize the circula tion ; for, during sleep, the blood tends Co stagnation, the heart beats feebly and Blow ; and to shock the system by bounc ing up in an instant and sending the blood in overwheming quantities to the heart, causing it to assume a gallop, while an instant before it was fcn a creep, is the greaest absurdity. This instanta neous bouncing out of bed as soon as the eyes are open will be followed by weariness long before noon. A Remedy for the Headache. Dr. War burton Begbie (Edinburgh Medical Journal) advocates the use of terpentine in the severe headache to which nervous and hysterical women are subject. "There is, moreover," he says, "anoth er class of sufferers from headache, and this is composed of both sexes, who mav be relieved by turpentine. 1 refer to the frontal headache, which is . most apt to occur aitcr prolonged mental eJHort, but may likewise lie induced by unttuly siis- untieu pnysicai exertion what may Do styled the headache of a fatigued brain. A cup of very strong lea often relieves this form of headache, but this remedy with not a few is perilous, for bringing relief from pain, it may produce general restlessness, and worst of all banish sleep. Turpentine in doses of twenty or thirty minims, given at intervals of an hour or two, will not only remove the headache, but produce in a wonderful manner that soothiug inlluenceto which reference has Already been made. - opim. A 1M I u fatuous TradeOne of Hie Sources of Englmh Krvenur. It is an admitted fact that a large inr- tion of the public revenue of British In dia is derived from the tax upon opium, produced from the white popPJ"? which is cultivated there, chieflv on the banks of the Ganges, on a tract 600 miles long by 200 in breadth, which, when tiie plant is in bloom, has leen likened by imagin ative botanists to a green sea studded w ith w hite water-lilies. There also is a con, siderable production of opium in Egypt Asiatic Turkey, and Persia. But little of this finds its way to Hindostan, as its import 'would not pay.' Indian opium is chiefly prepared for the markets in China, the Birman Empire, and Sumatra witli its adjacent archipelago. On the average, 5,000 tons of opium are annu ally disposed of, the assessed value of which, before shipment, is seventy mil lions of dollars. As every one knows, this inspissated juice of the poppy is one of the most powerful and useful articles in the pharmaeopoeio whether dissolved in alcohol or wine, reduced to an alka loid, or taken in its crude state. But in China and the other Oriental countries, which purchase all the opium that is produced in and exported from British India, it is largely indulged in, whether swallowed in bulk, or smoked after the fashion vividly described iu "Edwin Drood" as a narcotic and a stimulant: and thus used, or rather abused, its ef fects are so deleterious that its introduc tion and use are prohibited, by the most restrictive laws and ordinances, by the governing authorities of these countries in 183-i. shortly after the monopoly of the British i-ast India company legally terminated, and the trade with .China was thrown open, so much opium was shipped to China by private speculators (previously the r.ast India company, having the trade wholly in its own hands, had limited the production, to keep up the price.) that the market wa overstocked, and more opinu was intro duced into China in that oue season than had previously been brought iu three The Chinese authorities remonstrated, bsolutely forbade all further sales at opium, finally suspended the ilrinsh trade, and thus arose the succession ot contests between Chinese and 'outside barbarians ,' which, with various short itermissions, lasted lor thirty years. ending with the capture of Pekin bv British and French troop. Among tne latest aeivs items from the Antipodes is an announcement that the ultivation ot opium in various parts ol the Australian colony of Victoria has been largely tried, and successfully, as far as the quality is concerned. " The 'Oinmercial results are not vet stated.hut the article has realized from $7 to $7 50 per pound. At this rate, which leaves an immense profit on the production, it can undersell the Indian opium" in the Chinese market. If so, a competition must enevitablv rise, which will injure the nuances ol .British India,, to. which the article of opium contributes $-iO,000,- OOd per annum, about oue-s'.xth of the annual revenue. It is surprising that there is not vet any production of opiuut in this country, in all the noutuera States wherever the rich soil is UH-x- hausted the opium-produciug nownv coukt bo successfully cultivated with little manual and no mechanical labor. Careful weeding appears to be the chief care required. At the same time, there s opium enough in the world without our doing anything to increase it. THK SPHI.1X AMITIU; 'PYRAMIDS. The late Lord Elgin briefly b'ut pic turesquely dosswibes his visit to the pyr- amius in lugjrpt, vve pusne on over heaps of saiid and debris; - or probably coyered-np tombs when we suddenly came in face of the most remarkable ob ject n which my eye ever lighted. Somehow or other I had not thought of the Sphinx till I saw her before me. There she Iwas in all her imposing magnitude crouched on the margin of the desert, looking over the fertile valley of inej.iie,anu ner gaze nxedoi tne east as if in earnest expectation of tliejsunrising Ami eucn a gaze; l ne nwstieai 1 iff lit ami deep shadows castjby tlte moon, gave to it an intensity winch 1 cannot attemvt to describe. To me it seemed a look, earnest, searching, but unsatisfied. kFor iuug time i reiimiueu iransnxeu, en deavoring to read the meaning conveyed by this wonderful eye ; but I was struck after a while bv what seemed a contra diction in the expression of the eve and of the mouth. There 'was a singular gentleness aud hopefulness iu the lines oi tne month, winch appeared to be in contrast with thtj anxious eye. The up per part of. the face spoke of intellect striving, and striving vainly, to solve the my terry Yhat mystery ? the myste ry, oi nod's universe, op man's destiny ?; wniiij the lower indicated a moral con viction that all must bo well, and t'.iat this trutii. would in good time be made ltianiittsu wo coniu naraiy tear our selves away from this fascinating spec tacio to draw nearer to tho threat l'vra Bttd, which stood boside ns, its outline sharply traced in the dear atmosphere, AVc walked round and"round Unthinking of the strange. ' men who?e ambition to secure immortality for themselves had expressed itself in the giant creation. The enormous mocks of granite, brought from one knows not where, built up one knows not. how; the lorm selected sol ly for the purpose of defying the assaults of time ; the contrast between the con ceptions, embodied in these constructions and the talk of the frivolous race by whom we were surrounded, and who. aee-med capable of no thought beyond a desire lor daily 'backsheese,' all of t'jis seen and felt under the influence of the dim moonlight was very striking hk impressive. 'a spent some tim.o in moving from place to place aloug; the shadow cast by the pyramid iypo the sand, and observing the effect produced by bringing the moon sometimes to its apex and sometimes to othe,r points on its outline. 1 felt no disrt&sitoon to ex change for sleep the state ot dreamy half iuconseiousne3s in which 1 was wan-, dering about; hut at length I lay down on the shingly sand.with a block of grr.u ite for a piUow, and passed !in hov.v or or two, sometimes dozing, sometimes wakeful, till oue of 6ur attendants in formed me that tho sun would shortly rise, and that it was time to commence to ascend the pyramid if we intended to witness from its summit his first appear snoe. The asceut was, I confess, a much moire 'formidable undertaking than I had anticipated : and our French friend give in after attempting a few steps.' Sl SDAl-StHOOb BOOKS. i Ve wish to say something to tlie prolific writers forSunday School ; ami, in the first place, to ask them w It-it is tlieir chief object inwriting. Do they, first ami foremost, wish to promote moral ant! religious growth among children? Do they hope to nourish and draw oiit ' tlieir liner and nobler feelings? Do they desire to im plant adefiiiite purpose, tsouscienee,ree titude, honor ? 1 )o they know the needs and affections they are trying to stimu late and supply ? Have they conscien tiously studied child nature or child sympathies ; and do they faithfully try to lead aud instruct that nature, anil guide and develop those sympathies? We do not seem to find such thought and hope and intent kept seriously iu view by these numerous caterers to the large demand of the religious public. On the contrary, there seems to ho a feeling that anything is good enough for children, and that their healthful di gestion will turn unwholesome aliment to purposes of nutrition, without taking into account the wear and tear to the delicate organs involved in the pro cess. We must protest against the quality and the quantity of the intellectual diet offered them. They will have and do have spiritual indigestion, both from over-feeding and poor nourishment. Our best publishers say that the readers now coming up between the ages of six teen and twenty-five, will read nothing Dttt tne lign test ot literature. Thought of any sort is considered laborious, and substantial books of merit and force are quite wasted on them. This debilitated state of the healthful normal appetites of of young people who at that age, should bo eager, curious, and persistent in in vestigation, who should hunger and tiurst alter knowledge and seek for it as for hidden treasure, wo think is partly owing to their .Sunday-school pabulnni. Theirorigin.il store of thought and sen sibility is over-exercised by the quantity or too feebly exercised by the quality til" tlieir early reading, largely furnished from the .Sunday-school libraries; and ihoy come into the heritage of the great literature of the world either feeble or blase. Their intelligence is undeveloped, and their feelings are worn out; and they cannot appreciate the strong uieu.1 that is set before them. C. H. Wheeler, BOOTS miff SHOES.
