Where Love is, (here God Is also.
Ill tho City lived Mnrtill Allam, a shoemaker. Ho lived inn basement, i n t:ni in. .:.,.tn. T iu 11 inwu luum 'Tim vuv ninuuiu Tho window looked out on tho street. Through the window ho used to watch tho people passing by; although only their foot could be seen, yet by tho boots Martin Adam recognized their owners. Martin Adam had lived long in ono place, nnd had many acquain tances. Few pairs of boots in his district had not been in his hands once nnd again. Somo he would half sole, some ho would patch, some ho would stitch around, nnd occasionally their bnby boy last week. His death he would also put on new uppers, was" caused by n disease of tho head And through the window lie often ro- lor brain. cognized his work. Adam had plen-l Mi8SC8 Almn Bicknoll nnd Eliza ty to do, because he was a faithful Gentry, of Ifed Lick, and Miss Laura workniun,us(Hlgo(Alinnterial,didnotjCojl0(0r nt.re, imve i,, visiting make exorbinnt charges, and kept his fr;(,tj(iH t this place. a i r. . i it I woni. 11 nc can unisn an order ny a certain time, ho accepts it: if not he will not deceive you, he tells you fo beforehand. And all knew Adam, and he was never out of work. Adam had always been a good man; but ns he grow old begau to tliinknioro about his soul, and get nearer toGod. Martin's wife had died when ho was still living with his master. His wifo left him a boy three years old. Mono of their other children had lived. All the eldest had died in childhood. Martin at first intended to send his little sou to his sister in the village, but afterwards ho felt sorry for him: ho thought to himself, "It will bo hard for my Kapit to live in a strange fami ly. I shall keep him with me." And Adam left his master, and went into lodgings with his little son. But, through God's will, Adam had no luck with children. As Kapit grew older, he began to help his father, and 'Would have been a delight to him, but fell Bick, went to bed, Buffered a week, and died. Martin buried his son, and fell into despair. So deep was this despair, that ho began to complain of God. Martin fell into such a melancholy state, that more than once he prayed to God fordcath, and reproached God because ho did not take him who was an old man, in stead of his beloved son. Adam also ceased to go to church. And once a little old man, a fellow countryman, came to Trinity to see Adam: for seven years he had been absent. Adam talked with him, nnd began to complain about his sorrows. "I hnva nn mnrn rlnsim in l!vi " hp I said: "I only wish I was deud. That ' iB all I pray God for. I am a man without anything to hope for now." And the little old man said to him, "lou Hon t talk right, .Martin: wo must not judge God's doings. The world moves, not by your skill, but by God's will. God decreed for your son to die, for you to live. Con sequently, it is for the best. Aud you aro in despair, because you wish to live for your own happiness." "But what shall one live fort" ask ed Martin. And the little old man said. "Wo must livo for God, Martin. He gives you life, and for his sake you must live. When you begin to live for him, you will not grieve over anything, and all will seem easy to you. Martin kept silent for a moment, and then says, "But how can one livo for the sake of God!" And the little old man said, "Christ has taught us how to live for God. You know how to read. Buy a Testament, and read it: there you will learn how to livo for God. Every thing is explained there." And these words kindled a firo in Adam's heait. And he went that very same day, bought a Now Testament in largo print, nnd began to read. At first Adam intended to read only on holidays; but as ho began to read, it so cheered his soul that ho used to read every day. At times ho would become bo absorbed in reading, that nil tho kerosene in the lamp would bum out, and still ho could not tear himsolf away. And the more ho read, tho cloarer he understood what God wanted of him, and how one should live for God; aud his hoart constantly grow easier and easier. Formerly wlion ho lay down to sloop, ho used to sigh aud groan, and always think of his Kapit; aud now ho only ex claimod, "Glory to theo! glory to thee, Lord! Thy will bo dono." And from that tiuio Adam's wholo life was chuuged. lit other days ho, too, used to drop into a saloon, as u holiday amusement, to drink a cup of tea; aud he was not averse to a httlo brandy cither. He would tako u drink with some acquaintance, nnd leave tho saloon, not intoxicated ex actly, yet in a happy frame of mind, and inclined to talk nonsense, uud shout und uso abusive language at u person. Now ho left off this sort of thing. His life became quiet and joyful. In the morning he sits down to work, finishes his allottod task, and takes tho little lamp from the hook, puts it on the table, gets his book from the shelf, opens it, and sits down to read. And the mora ho reads, tho more he understands, and the bright er and happier it is in his heart. (7"u bt tvnllnui,) The Counties.

Sho would look out at thorn smiling. ' "They like their fun," she would! nay. Sh looked st them again some times as if, old as she was, she would j like somo fun too, but she never join ed them.

The Ilolsteiii-Fricsinn, or as they are more commonly called, Holstein cattle are probably tho oldest breed of domestic cattle in the world. Thoy have been developed iu the eountriiw of North Holland and Frieslnnd, countries that have been famous for their dairy products for more thun u hundred years. Long before the beef-eating Eng lishmen on the other sldo of the Chan nel had dovelod the splendid beef qualities of the Shorthorns and Here fords, the thrifty Hollanders had made their cattle famous for milk. Like the beef hreodri the Holsteins hnvo attained -i higher dtigrce of ex celleuctt at the hands of skilled and onterprUiiig American breeder thnu they ever tOfeaed nt home. They are a much larger and courser bom! breed (han the Jerseys that nro moro common iu this part of tho country, VAt) pound Ircltiir n fair average for n cow. Their milk differs from that of tho.Ieieys in Iwing bftter adapt ed to cheehe making, or in other words, it is rich iu casHi1, the nitrog enous, muscln-iunking portion of milk. As butler makers, tiioiiL'h thoy are not to bo despised, for the cow Mercedes, of this breed, won tho chal lenge cup offered by tho Hreoders Gazette in 188.'l, for the greatest butter yield for thirty consecutive dayB by a cow of any breed. The cup was won on n yield of W pounds (ij ounces of unsalled butter, or au average of il pouudN 5 ounces a day. Another cow, Aggie Hosa, gave 'Jtil'M pounds of milk in a year, or an avenigo of over TA pounds aday while n record of 87 J pounds of milk in a ninglo day, with au average of 81 pounds a day for ten days, is held by another. Tho steers of this breed are more slow to mature into blocky beef animals than short horns, but aro capable of mak ing very heavy animals. Oxen have been slaughtered weighing 1S00 pounds. The grades ot Holstein breeding are excellent combination animals, the heifers making excellent milkers and tho steers fattening read ily for beef. We feel that tho advent of these two hoifers marks on era in the Col lege fanning. A sire will bo secured from another strain of the same fam ily and thus tho foundation will be laid for a pure-bred herd. BEREA COLLEGE uxsv. x. KAiicumiaU, lili, THE SCHOOL. Kdltcd lr Mm. KlilA II.

Hero nro a few of tho things that wo need to notice "I don't know twlh i'hj iilwut It." I don't seo none." "I aint got none."' This sentenco could hardly ho more incorrect buttholittlo word 'got' is subject to much mistreat ment even by peoplo who speak fair ly good English. "1 haven't got any" would say what it means if "got" wero left out. Let everybody quit using "aint" and "habit." And then tho verbs! What xhall wo do with our "comes" and "swins" and "donos", How often wo henr "Ildoue it," "Sho seen it", "He come homo yesterday". Lot us dike just those three rcrls and improve our umi of them. Principal parts tlo not menu any thing la children that hare never studied grammar, and some of us could give pages of verbs and not make a mistake Iu principal parts, who, yet, cannot make our practice fit our knowledge. Wo enn toll tho children that some words aro not usisJ with "has" and "have," and put illustrations ou the black-lioard find into our own conver sation: "camo, have come" "saw, have seen" "did, have done" kept in view of tho school for a few weeks will be a help In fixing tho practical knowledge. But is all the while fixing Incorrect forms In mind, and wo must give our children much practico nfinr expression nnd not depend on nicely correcting mis takes. I feel that I cannot emphasize too much the value of memorizing ixH'ins nnd "gems" of prose for thoir influenco ou language as well as on thought. Tho leaves are nulling on their Autumn dresses and there aro many beautiful pooms that fit the time of year. Most of you have Susan Cool idges poem "I'll (ell how the loaves come down." Let the children learn it perfectly before golden Octolier is over, and leach them to wntch Na ture's changes aud to love, the out door world more and the world of joop!o better. I do uot like to close any of our talks without somo little word that will muke it seem moro worth whilo to live. We am not oxp-clcd to spend even ono hundred years in this beautiful world, but even that length of time would Ire far too little in which to lean, "all about" anyone of the things that we see daily.
