Where Love is, there God is also.
(Cmitlmiol frrnn NomlT I.) "That's just what I say," remarked tho old womau. "I niynoir hntl seven of thorn, onlj one daughter ii left." And the old woman began to relato where and how Hhe lived with her daughter, and how many grandchil dron she had. "Here," she. says, "my atrongtli is only so-so, and jet 1 have to work. I pity the youiigft'ra my grandchildren- how nieo they are ! No one gives me such a welcome as they do. Aksiatka won't go to any one hut mo. (Little graudmother, dear littlw grandmother, loveliest") and the old woman grow quite scuti metital. "Of courso, it is n childish trick. God bo with him," said she, pointing to tho Iwy. Tho woman was just nbout to lift the bag UX)n her shoulder, wheu tho boy ran up, and says, "Let mo carry it, littlo graudmothei: it is on my way." j The old woman noddod her head, and put the bag on the boy's back, Side by side they both passed along the street. And tho old woman eveu forgot to ask Adam to pay for the apple. Adam stood motionless and kept gazing after them; and ho heard them talking all tho timo as he walked away. Aftor Adam taw them disappear, he returned to his room; he found his eye-glassos on tho stairs,- thoy were not broken; ho picked up his awl, and aat down to to work again. After working a little while, it grew darker, so that he could not see to sew: he saw tho lamp-lighter passing by to light the street-lamps. "It must bo timo to make a light," he thought to himself; so he fixed his little lamp, hung it up, and betook himself again to work. Ho had one boot already finished; he turned it around, looked at it: "Well done." He put away his tools, swept off tho cuttings, cleared off the bristles and ends, took the lamp, put it on the table, and took down the Gospels from tho shelf. He intended to open the book at the very place where he had yesterday put a piece of leather aa a mark, but it happened to open at an other place; and the moment Adam opened the testament, he recollected his last night's dream. And as soon as ho remembered it, it seemed as though ho heard some one stepping about behind him. Adam looked around, and sees there, in the dark corner, it sonmod as though people were standing: he was at a lost to know who they were. And a voice whispered in his ear, "Martin ah, Martin! did you not recognize me" "Who!" uttered Adam. "Me," repeated the voice. "It is I;" and Stepanuitcb itepped forth from the dark corner; he smiled, and like a little cloud faded away, and soon van ished. "And this is T," said the voice. From tho dark corner stepped forth the womau with her child: the woman smiled, the child laughed, and they also vanished. "And this is I," continued the voice; both the old woman and the boy with tho applo stopped forward; both smil ed and vanishod. Adam's soul rejoiced: he crossed himself, put on his eyo-glasses, and began to read the Evangelists where, it happened to open. On tho upper part of tho page he read, "For I was an hungered, and yo gave me meat: I was thirsty, and yo gavo me driuk: I was a stranger, and yo took mo in." And ou tho lower part of the pago ho read this: "Iuasmuch as yo liavo done it unto ouo of the least of these my brethren, yo have dono it unto mo" (St. Mat thew, chap. sxv.). And Adam understood that hia dream did not deceive him; that the Saviour really called upon him that da, and that he really received him. i Tkr nut I Alumni and Old Students. H. 1.

Shooting Stars! Look Out!

Tho shower may last two or threo duys, but will bo heaviest at the time mentioned. Very rarely a shooting star is as bright as the moon, and really as largo as a bushel baskot, or even a wagon-bed. In that case, pieces of it are sure to fall to the irrouud. Wheu E. G.

Mjmix, IWrmir l ItitrtlrHl law, IVrrn Coll-n-. Wntch tho Fire. To the east of Berea alwut two or three miles lies a tract of several hun dred neros that is covered with a fine growth of young timber, mostly oaks and pines. Not much of tho old growth is left, but we are told that tho original growth was very heavy and that fifty years ago a largo saw mill did a nourishing busiuess In there. An old resident near this laud, (mint ing to u grove of pine with straight clean trunks six to ten inches in di ameter said, "Those trees wore just hushes wheu 1 came here thirty years ago." Thoy were juit gelling out of the K)le forest stage ami in another fifty years would make thousands of feet of lino timber. Scattered all through this tract where mom recent I cuttings have Ixien made are thick ets of young pines mid oaks six to twelve feet high. They are thrifty and in good growing condition, or ire re a few days ago and soon would have grown out of the brush itage into the K)le forest stage. Hut after the ground was well littered with fallen leaves some careless person, wo hoH it was not worso than carelessness, let a fin got hi and nearly the en lira tract was burned over.

The worst thing about it seemed to bo that tho whole affair was nobody's business in particular. Some of tho laud belonged to non-residents, and where tho owners were at hand they did uot seem to think a little leaf fire wub doing much damngo. It would not destroy auy largo treo or saw log. The young ole trees and tho seed lings in a woods are liko tin children in school and the littlo tots playing alxmt tho door in a community. They aro not of much uso yet in the world's work but thoy aro tho groxviiuj ttock that is to make tho men aud women of the future. A family without children has lit tlo show for representation in tho affairs of tho next century.

Now tho growing stock of u forest comprises all young trees of uny size uot yet ready to harvest. Thoro his so far been no way discovered to get old, valuable trees except to givo them timo to grow from young ones, and it takes a great maiiy years as a rule.
