A rich Southern oentU man who had
been very intimaU; with a clergyman
as worldly as himself, often drinking
wine snd plnyiii); cards with him, was
taken dangerously sick, wheil he was
terribly agit-.ited with his c mvictiims as
to being nnprepared to die. His physi
cian proposed sending for the clergy
man to come and pray with him, but
this he would not hear, for he had no
contidence iu him, and could hardly
bear the mention of his name. He had,
however, n poor pious negro, servant
by the name of- Hen, whom ho hail
aometimcM overheard at prayer. "Call
fur Htm!" said he, and when the con
sistent Christian slave came, his dying
master entreated him to pray for him,
having more (uiiiliileiice in his prayers
than in those of the minister who had
not let hi light sliine, but on tho con
trary had almost extinguished it by his
It is loo often the case that what are
regarded iui little things do much to
mar tho character of a Christian pro
fessor, and prevent him from laying
claim to exemplary piety. Often haa
Christian character been sadly injured
by lovity aod vanity, frivolity and folly,
imprudence and inconsidorateiicsg, im
patience and petulance, suspicion Niess
and cci)soriusncss; and thus it maybe
said that Uie liMle foxes spoil the
vine. The muutbs of gaitisayers are
thus lilbxl with derogatory utterances,
and the Christian name is lamentably
reproached. By the exhibition of angry
or resentful feelings, many become but
dimly shining lights, hi all bitterness
of spirit there u, poor nhiuing of Heav
enly light. Acerbity of temper is asso
ciated with groping as in a shadowy
way. JenJotisness is its dimness of
light, fault- Ii tiding is as gathering dark
ness, grumbling is as evening's depart
ing twilight, croaking is as midnight.
Among light-obscuring inconsisten
cies, want of tniliit'iilnoss is tjuite prom
inent, and tliis bintleraiice to exemplary
piety appears in various forma. By
dcliivii m y in fulfilling engagement, a
repniafioB fur truthfulness maybe lost,
and religions imluencc thereby greatly
crippled. The wont of a professed
Christian mionld be sacredly kept, or
lie can not shine as a light in the world.
In all that is said and dune, there
nhould be the transparency of sincerity
and lidolitiy no that the contidence and
respect of none may be lost.

He desires not the flippancy of lip ser

who worship Him shall worship Him
in spirit and in truth, that they shall
disclose the inmost secrct.s of their nat

All these aro not to be suppressed,
disguised, concealed, hinted or inti-
mated, but they are to be poured out
before the Lord into the ear of Him
who is touched with the feeling of our
infirmities, who wa tempted in all
points like an we are, who atllieted in
our atllictions, and w ho shall say to
those who have helped or harmed Hia
weakest, feeblest child: "Ye did it unto
Me." Why need we shut np in our
own bosoms our most sacred thought?
Why need we seek to hide from our
Heavenly Father those feelings which
His own Spirit hath begotten within
us? Why should wt; be ashamed of the
"broken anil contrite heart." which Ho
"will not despise," or the tear of pen
itence, which is so precious in His nig lit?
Let us take courage at His gracious in
vitation, let us come boldly to the
throne of grace; let us pour out our
heart before Him, assured that "the
eyes of tin; Lord are over the righteous,
and His ears are open to their ciiis."
Dr. M. D. Huge, of Richmond, Va.,
tells of two Christian men who "fell
out". One heard that the other was
talking against him and he went to
him and said: "Will you be kind
enough to tell me my faults to my face,
that I may profit by your Christian
candor and try to getiiid of them?"
"Yes, sir," replied the other, "I will
do it." They went a.sid", and the
former said : "Before you commence
telling what you think wrong in me,
will you please bow down withiue and
let us pray over it, that my eyes may
be opened to see my faults as you w ill
tell thein? Y'oti lend ill the prayer."
It was done, and, when the prayer was
over, the man who hail sought the in-
terview said: " Now proceed with
what yon have to complain of in nie."
But the other replied: "After praying
over it, it looks so little that it is not
worth talking about. The truth is. I
feel now that in going around talking
against you I have been serving the
devil myself, and have need that you
pray for Me and forgive me the wrung
1 have done you." Dr. llogu tells lite
story very well, anil here and there in
almost every community is a man or

A SCHOOL-TEACHER'S STORY.
How Eight Children Were Hrunght Up
by the Neighborhood.
"My father tlied when I was three
in hi t Iih oi l, and my mother when I
waa a year and a hall," saitl the pretty
young sclio d-teacher. She and two
of her oldest girls were having a little
chat tngethcrat noon.
"Why, who brought you up then?"
asked ontt of them wonderingly.
"Why, Miss (Jove, what do you
mean?" cried the girls together.
"dust what I say; the neighborhood
brought m ' up. and not only me. but
niytwo brothers and my ie sisters
there were eight of us iu all."
"lint, how could the neighborhood
bring you up; 1 never heard of such a
"Well, I'll tell you about it." said
Mi-s (luve, laughing, "I guess there'll
, be time enough. You sec, alter father
died, mother had a pretty hard time to
I gel along, but she w is a very smart,
i courageous woman, and she managed
to keep us all comfortable. Sheowned
ourlillle house clear, and, uilh our
cow and bens and garden, we had
nearly enough to eat. Then she used
to leave the y oungcrchihlren iu 0'iarirc
of the ohler ones, and go out to do
days' work for the iieio-hbora. TI i
were go id. honest, kind-hearted coun
try people, who make the lies! neigh
bors in the world, ylie had a good
faculty about patching and mending,
and making our clothes last, and wt
gut along vi ry well till she took cold
and died, very suddenly, of pneumonia.
TI eu the outlook w as pretty bad.
Tin-re wevire eight of us, the oldest
only fourteen, with nothing in the
world but a bil of a house, and a cow
ii ml a few lieihs, besides our li'tle
patched ijai ineiits.
"There were no relatives li ing to do
anything for us; we were all alone. Of
course I was loo young to remembei
:inythinr of this, but 1 tell it as 1 heard
it afterward, l'eople t.-ilketl of .sending
us all, except my oldest sister. Annie,
and in y o'd st brother. Frank, who,
they thought, might go to live in fami
lies and work for their board, to the
almshouse. We would be kept there
until we were able to work. I don't
know how this plan ciinie to be
changed, or which of
the one which
good neighbors started
was linally adopted.
" My very lir.st recollection of any
thing of the whole matter is centered In
a sweet, pretty young girl, w hose name
was Agnes Dean. But I did not know
her by that name at all; I always called
her iiiainina. Thnt word, to this day,
is always associated in my mind with a
fair, slender young girl, w ith beautiful
yellow curls hanging down her back,
and the mildest, rosiest, sweetest face.
I can remember walking with her,
holding tight to her hand and looking
up at her. Long before that, they tell
me, she used to drag me about in a
little carriage, anil rock me and tend
mo every minute she could get out of
school. She was my sister Annie's
friend. Poor Annie had everything she
could do to keep the house tidy, and
cook. She had nose wing or mending to
do. One of the neighbors looked out for
each of us, sunt we were well anil tastily
clad. Agnes Dean and her mother
made my little things. I can renu mber
some of their now; they were nicer
than my own poor mother could have
got me, I suppose. There was a little
pink cashmere hood, trimmed with
swansdown, whicli I had one winter,
and there was an embroidered blue
dress, too. I don't suppose all the
other children fared piite as daintily as
I, perhaps. I was the youngest, and
that may have made some dilleivnce:
then the Deans were well-to-do people.
But all of us had cnoui'h. Then, every
week, the neighbors, by twos, took
turns in cooking for us. Each Satur
day night great batches of cookies and
pics, loaves of bread and a big piece of
roast meat, came to our house. They
lasted ns over Sunday and far into the
week if we managed prudently, and we
were all well instructed in prudent
management by the neighbors. l'er
haps, on the w hole, w e received mure
lasting benetit from their good advice
than we did from their nice food and
their warm dresses.
"I have heard a good deal about its
being a poor plan for children to have
many musters, but it certainly worked
well in our case, and we are none ( tis
any the worse for it. I suppose these
neighbors must have been actuated by
so much loving kindness and unselfish
charily that they made wise rules.
They all seemed to agree ill them, too;
perhaps they consulted before making
them. One rule, which I remember,
was: three cookies per day, and no
more, for each child. Another was: to
take otTour best things and hang them
nicelv in the closets, and pill on our
ones, when we came home from
church Sundays. When we wi re very
naughty, and it came to the neighbors'
knowledge, we Were punished. My
sister Annie had too gentle a disposi
tion to make much of a disciplinarian,
and we met with about all the retribu
tion for our misdeeds away from home.
"I can remember very well being
culled into a Mrs. Simmons' one night,
on my way from school, and being
treated to a little switching with a twig
of birch. 1 had llatly disobeyed uiy
sister Annie iu the presence of one of
the neighbors, and Mrs. Simmons, be
in; told, had taken the matter into her
own hands. After I had been whipped
she kissed me, and told me, with tears
in her eyes, that sic did it fur my guod,
because 1 hadn't any mother to U-ach
me, and she wanted me to grow up to
be a good woman.
"We went by the name of the 'neigh
borlu o I children'. Ki cry hotly for half
a mile Hi'ound seemed to have an in

young as well as the old. 1 remember
one funny thing whicli happened in
school. One of the little buys was
leasing brother Charlie, when another
boy, a mere mite himself, stepped up
indignantly with: '1 should ihin k you'd
know better than lo plague one of these
children, Willy Tompkins.'
"Tho neighbors never deserted us;

AN OLD GUN.
It Was Brought to This Country About
the Year 1870.
Mr. J. 0. Harris is the owner of per
haps the oldest gun in Atlanta. If
there is an older gun in town it is at
perfect liberty to come on deck as soon
as .lie history of this aged piece
given. "The gun," says Uncle Jini
mie, "was brought from England by
my grcat-great-grandfathttr, William
Harris, about the year 1070. lie left
to my great-graiiilfnthcr, Robert Har
ris, who was born in 101(4, and who iu
turn left it to my grandfather. James
Harris, who was born in 17'.'2. By him
it was left to mv father, Nathan Harris,
who was born June 7, 1771, and by him
it was left to me. 1 was born iu Iti'Jll,
but you don't want to let it get out.
The old gun was lost in Virginia during
the war, and fell into the hands uf
mall named Robert Brown, w ho knew
how highly I prized it. He died sud
denly, and the gun was sold as a part
of his estate, the widow not knowing
was mine. It was bought by a negro
for three dollars and a hall, and 1 was
tor years trying to locate it. On my
last trip to my old home in Virginia
found the gun in the hands of a man
named Fh tcher and gave hi lil eleven
dollars for it. I would not lakeathou
saiul for il to-day." The gun was
originally nearly six feet long, bill
forty-three years ago Mr. Harris bail
eul oil' and changed from a Mint and
steel to a perciis-ion lock, lie is now
having it appropriately inscribed with
a brief history of its career. Last April
it was owned by a gentleman of Cul

One of the Grandest Mountain Piles on
the Fare of the Earth.
Captain Heeler, in a descriptive ac
count of a recent trip tlironli the
mountains of Invo County, thus por
trays tlie summit of Mount Whitney,
one of the grainiest mountain piles on
tlie face of the earth: "The entire sur
face of the summit proper, variously
estimated at from four to live acres in
extent, is covered with granite blocks
and slabs, enotiih to build two or three
St. l'cl-er's, or even one of the pvramiils;
the incline is slightly to the west. Look
ing down from the ape broueht a
shudder over me a vertical full of'
some four thousand feci down lo the
lake that looks like a spot of silver,
Now, when you crawl up lo the ciij;c to
look oil' this awful steep, the very flesh
seems to crawl on vour hone.-,. It is
truly startl'iio tn look into some of the
aw ni ii", .'hasiiis surround in;; t his e rat id
elevation nearly three iniie.s above the
sea! The sky was 'nil pcrfi-clU clear,
but we could see I. one Tine distinctly,
and Owens Lake Has plainly outlined
so far as it lay in our view. The whole
va lley loi 'ked more like a sea than terra
firniu. One interest inj; fact strikes ymi
tlni moment you cast your eves around
yon from this hcieht you kiiuif every
object is below you." ( Hyinia (.Vi )

A SUBMARINE VOLCANO.
An Island Thrown Up in the Paring Ocean
A new volcano, lie of the l.irgert
and most Interesting in the wurld. hap
recently been discovered in the l'acttic
Ocean, near the Island uf llunga-Ton-ga.
Mr. A. II Sh'pley, Cue Consul a
Auckland, New Zealand, sends tho
Slate Department the following int. r
esiing account of it:
"A new and Mist volcano has arisen
in the 1'iii i lie Ocean. At da light 'jn
the l.'Uh of October we observed dense
volumes of steam, smoke anil cloud as
cending. We sailed sufliciently near to
see that it vvas a sub-marine volcanic
eruption. Considering it not prudent to
approach any nearer that night, we lay
to till morning. We then approached
to within about the distance of two
miles. I have not words to express my
wonder ami surprise at its changing i
splendor. Eruptions take pkice every I
one or two minutes, changing its n- 1
pearance every second, like a dissolving
view. I can only say it was oin'of tho
most awfully grand sights I ever wit
nessed on the high seas. As near as
able to calculate the position of the vol
cano, it is about fourteen miles from the
Island of Honga-Tonga. As to th" size
uf the island thrown up, 1 am nimble '
U state correctly, there beingsomich
steam ami clouds hanging over it, but
I judge, it is at least two or three mil
long and sixty feet high."
