The old ballad says, " Spring would be but gloomy weather if we had nothing else but spring.'' Yet what is brighter than the sunshine of an ever - cheerful spirit ? Who more blest than the giver oi pleasant words and kindly looks? Not the insipid inanities of an existence without an object of a nature too indo lent to get ruffled. Not this, bu the influence of a strong individ- uanty amusing itseii among others, and gilding the passing hour with a genial glow. mother of many daughters was wont to say, "Girls, cultivate cheerfulness; it will stand you in hand through all vour life.' A wise father's injunction was, "Kind words cost nothing; do not grudge them, especially to your social inferiors." Again, "Take the world as you find it; you cannot mould people to suit your ideas. Give them credit for meaning as well as you do." An unerring test of a young girl's choice of books is to read nothing that she would blush to read aloud to a gentleman friend. The hero of "The Initials" is made to give this advice to Hil degarde. Just so in our social commingling it were well if we did not ever say of another what we would leave unsaid were that other within earshot. Be cheer ful and you will never feel cross. Before the mighty power of a happy, buoyant spirit fly the le gions of envy, hatred and malice and all uncharitableness. The shining sun of the heavens dis pels the miasma of the marshy vallies. The sun of cheerfulness scatters the mists that lie deep down in the darkened soul of discontent and unrest. Giving Tithes. There is a Christian household in this city who give a tenth of all they make to the Lord. The father, the sons and daughters work, and it is said of them that this rule holds good even down to the little one who has but ten cents, yet gives a penny of it away. Shall this righteons man ever be forsaken, or his seed beg ging bread ? New Subscribers. Prof.Dillenbeck, Prof.Newman and Mrs. Laura Hawkins and Dr. McClure have sent in their sub scriptions to the Record. Others have signified their desire to have our little monthly message, and we hope to give a long list in June. More Donations. The Charity Organization gave a court-day dinner, which netted $50.

The best time to think is before you act; to take care of your health is before you lose it; to make a good resolution is when vou in tend to keep it; to judge another is when you are in the same predicament. The best time to stop your meanhess is before you commence.
