THOUGHTS OF HEAVEN. Life changes all our thoughts of Heaven; At first we think of streets of gold. Of walls as white as snow, wind-driven. Of lofty arches, grandly cold, Of gates of pearl and dazzing light. Of shining wings and robes of white. And things all strange to mortal sight. But in the afterward of years It is a more familiar place; A home unhurt by sighs and tears. Where waiteth many a well-known face; Where little children play and sing, Where maidens and the old men bring Their tributes to theigracious King. With passing months it comes more near. It grows more real day by day; Not strange or cold, but very dear. The glad homeland not far away! " Where no sea toucheth, making moan, Where none are poor, or sick, or lone. The place where we shall find our own! And as we think of all we knew, Who there have met and parted no more, Our longing hearts desire home, too. With all the strife and trouble o'er. So poor the world, now they have gone, We scarcely care to think upon The years before our rest is won. And yet our Father knoweth best The lot of sadness that we need. The time when we may take our rest, Ana be from sin and sorrow freed. So we will wait, with patient grace. Till in that blessed gathering place We meet our friends and see His face.

Consolation I"rom the Sorrow of Life to lta Obtained Only as the Thoughts Arc Centered in Gotl. It is the divincst philosophy of life that helps us to get sweetness out of the hard places, honey out of the rock. Out of the depths of our personal griefs we may be best fitted to speak words of sw eetest comfort to the sor rowing. And how many such there are. Night alternates with the da-. While half the world is dwelling in the sunlight of prosperity, the other half may he in the shadow of some great grief. But what if in the darkness there shines for the sorrowing a super natural brightness surpassing that of the noonday sun. There is no time -when God seems so real or half so tender to us as when we are most alnietcd. lucre is no honey sweeter than that which is found in unexpected places; extracted as if from our stony griefs. If this were an exceptional experience, we might doubt its verity and question -n hether it were not the result of some self wrought cestacy. But when In every age and in every Christian land it is a common experience, we have no rea son, as we have no disposition, to chal lengc it. It has boen the experience, not alone of a few favored ones but of millions of God's sorrowing children: "Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O, Lord;" "I called by reason of mine almction unto the Lord, and lie an swered me.'" If, then, out of the depths we cry to our com panions in sorrow, speaking faintly and inadequately of the consolations that are unspeakable, shall thev not hear us? The bereaved may have these .tiling consolations if thev seek for them in God. There is no restf illness like that which reaches down to the bed-rock of eternal principle. If a seaman, navigating a stormy ocean. liau for years earned on deck an an chor, which by and by he had occasion to let down into the deep waters, and it held securely when so much decid ed upon its steadfastness, how could he fail to speak appreciatively and grate fully of that anchor. Surely, the testi mony of millions who have tried at is worth every thing to those who ques tion whether there is to the tempest tossed any anchor for the soul that is sure and steadfast. The Christian hope is to the believer such an anchor. With it he niay safely outride every storm. These strong consolations arc not found alone in the sweet thoughts wc sherish of the departed, precious as are those memories. The tempest is stilled and the soul is at peace only as our thoughts center in God. "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peaee whose mind is stayed on Thee." Our minds may be fixed on the excellence of the loved ones that have left us, only to intensify aur griefs. But it is when we think of all the elements of excellence in their character as reflections of God's love liness, that we rest in peace and are content. So surely as He who is the God of truth has not writ ten a lie in the very constitution jf our nature. He has not implanted those elements of Divine excellence in any human character and cultivated them for years, causing them to bloom with spiritual beauty and to be fragrant tith Christ-like loveliness, only to blast them as the flower is withered, ind to destroy them as the worthless ihaff is driven away. It is chiefly, if aot solely, in God that the stricken oul finds perfect rest. Every attri Hte of His character assures us that He can make no mistakes and that He an do us no wrong. And then, before our sympathizing friends can reach us with their welcome jrords, there marches before us a long procession of giants, many exceeding great and precious promises; they arc ill lively oracles; they are present as irell as precious promises. There is a aarvelous apteess in them. They meet the needs pi the here aad the now. Among the many new and precious things thai have broken oat from God'E Word through the late revision, is the clearer vision we get of the consola tions which come not from men but directly from God. The searching question of Job's friend, the sage of Teman, was never more peni tent than now; "Are the consolations of God too small for thee? and the word that dealeth gently with thee?" If they have proved more than suffi cient for so many others, ought they to be accounted too small for you? There is nothing harshly grating upon the sensitive ear of the afflicted in that now doubry precious Word. On every page it dealeth gentry with thee. As truly and as sweetly as ever a fond mother folded her loved and lov ing child in her arms, so sweetly does God place beneath us his ev erlasting arms and we are at rest. He whispers gently to us and wc love to listen. He takes these puny, helpless hands of ours in his strong hand, and we are content to be led by Him. Who of us is competent to hold any contro versy with the all-wise and compassion ate God? Men say: "Blessed are the living;" God says: "Blessed are the dead, who die in the Lord." Men call the proud happy, and think the gay and thoughtless are to be envied. God says: "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." Eli Cor win, D. J)., in Advance. WELL-SPENT TIME. The Secret of Spending Sfoments Profita bly It to Consecrate Them to God. To the question "How can we save time?" I answer: "By putting it to the best use. What is the best use of time is determined by life's aim. We are not meant to live here always. This world is only a scene of preparation for another. God has revealed himself as our true end, and his service as our true occupation. The best use of time, then, is that use of it which subjects it wholly to God The true preparation for eternity is the development of such a character as will fit us for the blessedness and activities of eternity, and right living here is the best prepa ration for hereafter. To this develop ment all our days and all our occupa tions may be tributary. We are under obligation both to do and become that which is good. Whatever hinders this is an evil. If our daily toil works harm to character it is an abuse of time. Set ting it clearly before us that our true aim Is to rise toward God in knowledge ami purity and benevolence and power, we must sec that the best, the only right, use of time is such use as shall promote this upward progress. We are to seek for knowledge and skill, that we may be fit for the highest work, and we are to do that which is good with a consciousness that all good action, how eer humble, is both a true service to God and a means of true advancement to ourselves. Time that is thus con secrated to a godly purpose can not be wasted. Whatever is right in thought or action, whatever is done to help our fellow-men toward goodness, whatever toil makes life mild er, and sorrow less bitter, and evil less prevalent, is a true saving of time. The rest which restores our exhausted strength, the recreation that ficshens our jaded fculties, the meditation that fructifies the soul with pure and elevated thoughts, the self-examination that lets us into a true knowledge of ourselves, all this puts time to a profitable use. If our aim in life be right we shall not want for opportunity to use well all the time God gives us. There is much to do. The progress of civilization continually opens up new channels for worthy aetivit-.. The wants and sorrows of those about us furnish wide field for beneficent effort. The multitudinous tasks which come to every one afford occasion for right and blessed labor. When we think of what we may do and be for God, how valuable time !-' conies to us, and how short it seems. While all of us have time for living well, none of us have time to waste. It is a lesson we arc slow in learning: how rightly to appreciate time. Epee ally Is this true of the young. To the eager, restless, dreamful heart of youth, the years to come seem ages, but to the heart worn with many toils the 3'eare are winged and swift. In youth we are prone to be prodigal of time, but Youth Ik not rich in time, it may be poor; Part 'with it as with money, sparing; pay No moment, but in purchase of its worth. Time spent in living well is time saved. Bee. Philip S. Moxom. CHOICE SELECTIONS. On tie same stream we never float again. Gactlte. , Life is a short day, but it is a work ing day. Hannah More.

AGED BEAUTIES. TheMfc Net Tuu. History is full of the accounts of the fascination of women who were no longer young. Thus, Helen of Troy was over forty when she perpetrated the most famous elopement on record, and as the siege of Troy lasted a de cade she could not have been very juvenile when the ill-fortune of Paris restored her to her husband, who is re ported to have received her with nn- nuestionino- love and sratitude. Peri- cles wedded Aspasia when she was thirty-six, and yet she afterwards, for thirty years or more, wielded an undi minished renutation for beauty. Cleo patra was past thirty when Antony fell under her spell, which never lessened until her death, nearly ten years after; and Livia was thirty-three when she won the heart of Augustus, over whom she maintained her ascendancy to the last Turning to more modern history. where it is possible to verify dates more accurately, we have the extraordinary De Poictiers, who was thirty-six when Henry H. then Duke of Orleans, and just half her age became attached to her, and she was held as the first lady and the most beautiful woman at court up to the period of the monarch's death and the accession to power of Cath erine de Medicis. Anne of Austria was thirty-eight when she was described as the hand somest Queen of Europe and when Buckingham and Kichelieu were jeal ous admirers. Ninon do l'Enclos, the most cele brated wit and beauty of the day, was the idol of three generations of the golden youth of France, and she was seventy-two when the Abbe de Berais fell in love with her. True it is that in the case of this lady a rare com bination of culture, talents and personal attractions endowed their possessor seemingly with the gifts of eternal youth. Louis XTV. married Mme. de Maintenon when she was forty-three years of age. Catherine H. of Russia was thirty-three when she seized the empire of Russia and captivated the dashing voung General Orloff. Up to the time of her death at sixty-seven she seemed to have retained the same bewitching powers, for the lamenta tions were heartfelt among all those who had ever known her personam-. M'lle. Mars, the celebrated French tragedienne, only attained the zenith of her beauty and power between forty and forty-five. At that penod the loveliness of her hands and arms espe cially were celebrated throughout Europe. The famous Mme. Recamier was thirtv-eiirht when Barras was ousted from power, and she was with out dispute declared to be the most beautiful woman in Europe, which rank she held ior fifteon years.
