Have begun to open their eye.

And seems to unbar the city.

To guide his footsteps aright,
So that I be accounted worthy
To walk in sandal s of light,
And hear mid songs of welcome.

On the starry floor of heaven,
The patter of little feet.
In the quiet nursery chamber,
Snowy pillows yet unpressed,
Bee the forms of little children.
Kneeling, white robed for their rest.
All in quiet nursery chambers.
While the dusky shadows creep,
Hear the voices or the children
Now I lay me down to sleep."
In the meadow and the mountain
Calmly shines the winter stars.
But acrotae glistening lowlands .

Walking evermore in white.
Little souls, that stand expectant
Listening at the gate of life.

Of the tumult and the strife;

Meeting ranks of foemcn there,
Find a deeper, broader meaning
In your simple vesper prayer,
When vour hand shall grasp the standard

When y oar deeds shall shape the conflict
In this universal war.
Pray to Him, the God of battles.
Whose strong eye can never sleep,
In the warring of temptation.
Firm and true your souls to keep.
When the combat ends, and slowly
Clears the smoke from out the skies,
When, far down the purpledlstance,
All the noise of battle dies,
When the last night's solemn shadow
Buttle dark on you and me,

Jennie's , , Visit to
.,, Grandmother.
I HE felt her heart give a great
bound and then it seemed to
stand still, and she grew weak
rUT and tried to call for help, but the
words refused to come; ttnally sue
plucked tip courage to take another
step backward, and then another, and
then another, keeping her eyes fastened
on Mr. Turkey who followed her a she
backed oft" toward the gate. The faster
she went the faster he came. It was
funny race, only Jenny could not see
the fun lust then. - - -
'Quit! quit! milt!" said Mr. Turkey
his feathers brustling up like porcupine
"O dear !" thought Jenny; "if lean
only reach the gate and open it ever so
little, sol can sup out, 1 11 ne uinnKiui
and you'll never catch me in this place
again." So she put her band behind
lier, pushed the gate softly ajar and was
out like a rmsli. -
"There Mr. Turkey ; now you may
strut and cry 'Quit' as'longas you choose
I'm on the outside of the fence and the
gate is fastened ! - Who's afraid of you?'
And Jennie nodded triuinpbatly and
went off, with Sultan at her heels, in
search of new adventure.
After dinner grandmother told her
she might go with the hired girl into
the meadow, and help gather strawber
ries lor tea. ' Jennie thonght that would
be capital fun, and she set out with
Bridget, swinging a bright tin pail and
asking ail miuinerot questions
They clambered ovor a stile, crossed a
little babbling brook on a bridge made
of a single .plank and came out in a
beautiful meadow all spangled ' over
, with red and white clover blossoms
among which the dark green leaves of
the strawberry plant showed where the
delicate truit might be tound
Jennie screamed with delight and
scarcely dared to step for fear of crush
ing either the lierries -or the clover
lilossoms, which she persisted in look
ing upon as verv sweet flowers.
"Q Bridget! Isn't it beautiful ? Did
you -ever see such a lovely sight be
fore?" "Indeed, then, it's myself that has no
time -to stand admiring it when there's
the berries to be -picked;" and Bridget
fell to work with sublime indinerence.
think it just grand," said Jennie
"I'd'like. to come here: every day. 1
mean - to gather, a bouquet ot these
splendid flowers- to take home with
me." -" '
She passed along, picking now a few
berries which-she nut in her mouth in
stead of into her pail and now a few of
the finest clover blossoms, and without
thinking of the direction she was taking
it. was -not long ere she wandered out of
sight and hearing of Bridget.
There was a thicket of bushes hearing
something whirb Jooked like mits, but
which proved, on inspection, to be only
little black nobs, hard and bitter to the
taste. - Beside them stood an old tree,
uhout which a wild honeysuckle vine
had clambered, until it was one mass of
red, and yellow, and white blossoms,
and O : so very fragrant.
Jennie buried her face 3n a cluster of
the sweet things: she kissed them and
gathered as many as she could hold, for
she loved flowers verv much.
Then she thought he had better re
turn to the place where she had! parted
from Bridget, and help her gather the
berries, but when she looked about her,
she could find no path, neither could she
tell in what direction she had come. She
called out: '
"Bridget ! i Bridget! where are 'you ?"
And after waiting and calling for some
time and getting no response.sue started
on and at -length succeeded in -finding
the path.
Running along quickly for- a little
way, she spied something moving just
before her. It was a little striped snake,
gliding along right in the path. When
it saw Jennie it stopped, raised its head
and put qut a tiny red tongue.
"O dear! what shall I do?" thought
Jennie, bursting " into tears. She had
heard -of poisonous snakes and " wis
dreadfully afraid of the reptiles. Fear
ing to turn back lest it should overtake
lier and coil about-her .;feet ; not daring
to rush oft into the grass on either siue
for fear of meeting others, she could do
nothing but lust stand still crying and
trembling with fear. At this moment
she heard the quick bark of a dog, and
very soon Sultan bounded into the path
!anvlit ine siiUKt? up wiwcbu his iculu,
smd'shook it until it flew into two or
three pieces, after -which he rushed up to
Jennie as if he would say: ;
"There, I,ve put an end to him! He
won't do you any harm now. Trust me ;
I'll take .care of you ;" and what did
Jennie do but throw down her flowers
and kiss and hug the shaggy fellow,
While she wept tears of joy at her deliv
erance. ,"Yott dear old Sultan ! You are the
best dog in the world. I wish I could
fake you home , with me. I'd. always
feed 3'ou all you could eat and be very
kind to you."
Sultan 'seemed grateful for her cares
ses and looked .t her out of his kind
gray eyes as if he would like to belong
to her.
He ran on in front to clear the path,
and when- they arrived at the house.they
round Bridget hulling the berries as un
concernedly as if nothing hud ever hap
pened to anybody.
She thought Jennie had preceeded her
and was in the parlor with the older
people, and she turned up her nose in
huge disdain at the adventure witli the
"Ugh ! Twas only a garter snake and
they don't bite," was all she said. ;
1 But to Jennie the danger had been' too
real to bo thus lightly spoken of, and
s!ie continued to look upon Sultanas her
deliverer from immient peril.
Her homeward ride was delightful and
she was very tired and sleit very sound

point is to make the throat not less than
four inches broad and twelve long; then
the chimney should be abruptly enlarg

for one foot or more;, then it may be
gradually tapered off as desired. But
the inside of the chimney, throughout
its whole length to the top, should be
plastered smooth with good mortar,
which will harden with age. The area
of a chimney should be at least half a
square foot, and no flues less than sixty
square inches.. The best shape for a
chimney is circular .or rnany-siueu, as

Killing ' "Weeds ix Lawns. The

other strong rooted varieties, are fre

obstruct tle lawn mower, and when sha

ly into prominence again. Perhaps the
nii'thod Qf killing tliem out is to use a
narrow-bladed spade, or a strong knife,
which will cut the root deep enough un
der the surface, when it can be pulled
up, and in most cases win- not grow
again. This, however, is not the ease
with strong growing and extremely
vital plants, like horseradish.thistles and
dock. These require mope frequent
treatment, and perhaps something ad
ditional to the cutting. If a little salt
or what is much better, kerosene, can be
applied to the cut surface of the roots,
generally kills them completely.

The Currknt Worm. We are inform

that the curt rent worm, so destructive
to a favorite fruit, may be fully and al
most immediately destroyediby the - use
of carbolate of lime. The doctor tried the
powder in many instances during the
past summer, and found that while it
was as effective as hellebore, it was less
disagreeable, less costly, and perfectly
sale. ' The method of using Hi to sprin
kle it over the vines as soon as the worm
makes its 1 appearance, bringing it well
in contact with the leaves, and soon the
pest is destroyed, Jt needs but two or
three applications. In this way for
few cents, large quantities of current
bushes may be saved and the fruit allow
ed to mature, and no danger whatever
being incurred, Sejther the foliage nor

ine nrst comD tney ever ouiit was as
perfect as at the present day ; no art has
unproved the shape or size. One bee

the young and protect them; each bee
does its part of the labor in gathering

l have noticed for several years past
meir inoue or gathering - pollen or bee
bread. It is this: When a bee goes out
after food it alights on some kind of
flower and gathers a part of its load ;
then goes to another of ' the same kind
and perhaps a third, to obtain a load.
Another goes out, and if it alights
on another kind of flower, it keeps to
that kind till it gets a load. But how is
this known? Vou go to th" hivo and
watch them as they eoine in : some have
yellow pollen on their legs ; others have
light color ; others have dark ; but no bee
has two colors on his legs. If vou see
any, yon will see more than I have, for
I never did ; and I have supposed that
they 6tored it in different cells for a
change of food. The other day in over
hauling a hive, I broke out a new piece
of comb and found the diflerent colors
in different cells, which confirmed mv
belief, for I suppose they like a change
of food as well as humans. Another cu
riosity is their coining out and alighting
before going off; for amongst the huiu
dreds that I have hived I never had one
swarm leave direct from the hive. An
other curious tiling is their rearing the
males and nursing them so tenderly,
and after they become useless they des
troy them. But instinct has directed
them to cio it. Another curious thing
is that when they get too numerous, the
mother bee should call out a part of the
brood to go with her and leave the others
to take care of the young. Why not
call them all out to go with her? Because
instinct has ordered It otherwise. (Jor-

2. Do not set yourself up as a standard
Shun all censoriousness. Remember
that each one "to his own master stand

Insoluble Glue. The liability of glued
articles to come to pieces when exposed
to the action of .water, ' especially hot
