When you read the sermon the
devil already has answers framed
in the minds of your hearers. The
consequence is the seed falls on
stony ground. Now, when I get
up in the pulpit to speak not even
the devil himself knows what I am

The best side of Quakerism is
shown by the shrewd Quakeress
who, after hearing Southey relate
how he studied Portuguese grammar
while shaving, read Spanish
for an hour before breakfast, then
wrote or studied until dinner, and
filled his day with this, that and the
other, quietly asked, "And, friend,
when dost thee find time to think?"

"Toll softly East, toll softly West,
To the land of the dreamless
To the Sepulchre closed on Calvary's
Ring forth, sweet bell, in tones
For father, mother, sister, brother,
Dear loved ones gone before
God rest their souls in Heaven,
Who meet on earth no more."'

Of all work producing results,
nine-tenths must be drudgery.
There is no work, from the highest
to the lowest which can be done
well by anybody who is unwilling
to make that sacrifice. No one can
readily succeed in any walk of life
without a good deal of what in ordinary
English is called pluck.
That is the condition of all success,
and there is nothing which so truly
repays itself as this perseverance

A book buyer wandering among
the stalls along the side of the
Seine, according to a recent Paris
paper, purchased for a couple of
francs an old volume which piqued
his curiosity. He turned over its
pages in the evening at home and
found two which were purposely
stuck together. He opened them
carefully with a knife, and to his
great surprise found inside three
banknotes of a thousand francs
each. Also this message : "Friend,
whoever thou art, thou hast read
this book to the end ; be legatee,
without remorse, of this little fortune.
It is all my pen has brought
me in fifty years. May the Muses
be more favorable to thee, for thou
art surely a man of letters." Then
came the initials "H. Z." the date
Jan. 10, 1848, and the number of a

It is not only indeed a banking
house beautiful and truly enough
esthetic and dainty to suit the eye
of a connoisseur; but, it is also a
prime bank for action, for practical
brain labor (not brain fag, however)
; and, every modern invention
and facility is to be seen there
for making the work to proceed
without friction, or too much wear
and tear, for those that will superintend
the famous institution.
