One day a sorrow opened wide my door,
And t^hiia its shadow lengthened on the ffooi
Its sad habiliments of sombre gray
Drove all the rosy flame of hope away.
Jost then a linnet from the choir of Jena
Poured through tiro window his ecstatic tune,
As if to make the welcome gospel plain
That joy shall triumph over grief and pain.
I turned to find my spectral truest had gone;
A fresher glory flushed the fields and lawn;
December's gloom hid in the almanac,
And nevermore came that sad caller back.

Cooking being an art, every raca
has a style of its own. The Malagasy,
like the gentle Hindoo, knows how to
prepare his moss of rice. It is not
boiled to a mash, as in England, or as
our potatoes are sometimes pulped,
but covered with a proper.sufficiency
of water, it is carefully treated until
the grams are swollen fit to burst, and
yet remain full, intact, soft and rather
meaty. The manioc root is an easier
dish to prepare. It is sometimes
served boiled, as yams and sweet pota
toes, and again as a sort of cold por
ridge. Native coffee they understand
how to make, and the aroma is ex
cellent; but tea, alas ! you have to
took to the brewing of that from start
to finish if you desire a drinkable cup.
Poultry-amt game are eaten fresh, and
the cooks have a Ciever and withal
cleanly trick of dipping tho dead ani
mals in boiling water, which enables
them to pluck easily and quickly. The
preparation for trussing comes later.
There is no lack of variety at a Mala
gasy table, but, all the same, you miss
bread, sugar and
eioved with rice,
fowls, manioc and eggs. The staple
fuel is bunch grass, which, when
dried, burns fiercely and settles into a
glowing ember that gives off a deal of
heat. All the cooking is done on
earthen hearths, and the roasting,
boiling and baking in big iron pots.
The grass being slightly aromatic, the
odor is as agreeable as that of a hard
wood fire. —London Telegraph.

The journey is ended. The lord of the corn- J

of his guests; and he sends a portion to each

"Benjamin's mess was five times as much as
any of theirs." Be quick and send word back

Well, mv friends, this world is famine
si nick of sin. It does not yield a single
crop of solid satisfaction. It is dying. It is
hunger-bitten. The fact that tt does not, can
not feed a man's tieart was well illustrated
in the life of the English comedian. All the
world honored him—did everything for him
that the world could do. He was applauded
in England and applauded in the United
States. He roused up Nations into laughter.
He had no equal. And yet, although many
people supposed him entirely happy, and
that this world was completely satisfying his
soul, he sits down and writes:
"I never in my life put on a new hat that
it did not rain and ruin it. I never went out
in a shabby coat because it was raining and
thought ail who had the choice would keep
indoors, that the sun did not come out in its
strength an i bring out with it all the butter
flies of fashion whom I knew and who knew
me. I never consented to accept a part I
hated out of kindness to ancther, that I did j
not get hissed by the public and cut by th
writer. I could not take a drive for a few
minutes with Terry without being overturned
and having mv elbow broken, though my
friend got off unharmed. I could not make
a covenant with Arnold, which I thought
was to make my fortune, without making
his instead, than in an incredibly short space
of time—I think thirteen months—I earned
for him £>0,000, and for myself £1. I am
persuaded that if I were to set up as a baker,
even oue in my neighborhood would leave

Bui, ble-sed be God, there is a great corn
orib. The Lord built it It i« in another
land. It 1.« a large place. An angel once J
measured it. and as far as I can calculate it :
in one phrase, that corn-crib is 1500 miles i
long and 1500 miles broad, and 1500 high; j
and it is full. Food for all nation*. "Oh!" j
say the people, "we will start right awav j
and get a supply for our soul " But stop a i
moment; for from the Keeper o? that corn- ;
crib there comes this word, saving, "You ;
shall not see Mv face except your brother
be with vou." In other words, there is no
such thing as getting from heaven pardon
and comfort and eternal life unless we bring
with ns our Divine Brother, the Lord Jesus
Christ. Coming without Him we shall fall
before we reach the corn-crib, and our
bodies shall be a portion for the jackals of
the wilderness; but coming with the Divine
Jesus, all the granaries of heaven will swing j
open before o.ur soul and abundance shall |
be given us. We shall be invited to sit in j
the palace of the King, and at the table; an l ;
while the Lord of heaven is apportioning i
from His own table to the other tables He ;
will not forget us; and then and there it will |
be found that our Beniamin's mess is larger |
than all tb« others, for so it ought to be. j

§ The Blue and the Gray. ®
Both men and women are apt to feel a little É|)|
/gN blue, when the gray hairs begin to show. It's /Ts

They have no business whitening tho head of

fill life's seasons ; sometimes it is whitened by
