Djubt kss many such deeda nro dono which are recorded only on high, but now and then they come under our obaerv4tton aa we go about among theBe hnmble brethren and eisters. Two shop-glrls wera reoently overheard planuing lo share between them the work of a third who had been callpd homo, and tbns save her wagps for her. " She needn't get a substitute," said one. " If we're a little spryer tban ntml, we can do her work and onrs too. Will yon agrpe 7 It's ask Mr. Sullivau if we may." "Yes, indped," said the other. "Ilflr mother's sick, poor thingl She'll need all her earningn." A faraily of motherless chlldren received, during an ontirespason, tho weekly servlces of a kind-hearted wafherwoman. Time waa mouey to this woman, for ber akilled labor was in de- tnand ; and ruoney waa precioue, for sho had many mouths at hotne to fill. But she deliberately gave up other engage ments Bud devoted one dny ech week to these needy neighbors, and when offered payment by interestpd ladies she rpfused to take it. " Sure and it's meself that wishea I could give more,"Bhe Baid. I wondered if any one else gave in her proportion. A well known figure in a certain town ia old Silas, the ash-man, much in reqnest at house-cleaning tiraes a friend in need. A young womau, weightpd with a worse than worthless husband and two or three little children, had passed tbrough a long and distressing illness, and was slowly coming up to life again. Old Silas conceived the knighlly desire of giving this wornan a little pleas nre. Iie borrowed an old carriage, brushed off his bony, dusty horse, and dressed him self in his Sui.cUy suit, a costumo the moBt Btriking feature of vrhich was the unwonted white shirt with its conspicuous sleeves. Thus appointed, old Silas set out for his doughty deed, and took his drooping, faded lady for a long country ride. It was an amusing spectacle, but, I tbink, as it passed tbrough the streets, it called np tears and stuiles. I have been touched by these tbingp, I said. I have been Instruoted and rebuked, as I haveseen among these little ones so much of the Bpirit of him whose life on earth shed a sacredness forever 0V6r poverty. It is not only among themselves tbat the poor show kindness. Their childlike hearts are quick to feel for us, their more fortunato neighbors. A little cluster of bright geraniums, the one cberished orna ment of a certain poor little kitcheD, was the cboicest gift tbat came, among show ers of delicaciea of every description, to a lady's sick-bed recently. No Christmas eifteven gave more pleasure than two Eolders made by a poor colored woman for one who had had the privilege of be ing kind to her. " Ntt for the kitchen," explained tbe giver, " they are for you to . uae yoursdf if ever you want to press out anythitig.'' And though the Btitchea were not dainty, and geometry was somewbat at fault in the curves, they were carefully reduced to the supposed proper siz", and covered with silk, " to make 'em soft for your hand, you know." The same woman, who had been a famous cook in her day, bought, at no small ezpenditure of strergth and means, the requisite mate rialB, and made a notable loaf of cake for the doctor who had attended her tbrough an illness. She came to borrow a " gilt cdged plate" and a nice napkin with which to serve np the present, and the aooior says ne never tootc a richer lee. 1s not this trait worth cultivating in tbe minds of tbe poor with whora we have to do ? Send a flower with the bowl of broth Bomo day, and eee if it does not come back to you in some pleasant form af ter many aays. isy example, by encourage- meni ana apprecialion, we may belp these less fortnnate friends of onrs to oneof the most unfailing of pleasures that of do ing little kindnpsses. Sop foj Winthrop, in inruuan ai tro'K. Tho Day of Judgment. There is no set time, no appointed piace. 111a nandwnung is on every wall. His day of judgment dawns witb each BUDnse; sometimes we see it, sometimes we are blind. For every man, his day of of judgment comen when his vision is cleared to behold bimself in the divine light. As we aro social beiogq, to society mnst come also at some period his vindi cation or his inculpation. Never has the divine method of administering justico been more signallv illustrated than iu the Btory of Thomas Carlyle. He began life ana ciosea u wun a remarKable absorp' tion m himself. So powerfui was his eelf love that it embraced his faraily and conferred dignity and worth upon all who were of his blood ; while most persona not akin to himself hedpBPised and reifcted. Hebclievod hisopiriionssoimportaiitas not oniy to warrant but demand lor their pro mnlgattou a sacrifice of the amenitiea and obligitiona ol lite outsido of his familv circle. He fougbt a long and bitter fitrht. and he conquered. The world at first ig- nored bim, tben ndlculed liiiu, iinaJly yielded aud took him at his own valuatiou. Long before his death he was the " Saee of Chelsea," and a prophet without honor in iiia own country. liut liod is tbe only publio opinion. The day of judgment came; came to Carlyle before behadgone from tbe world ; came to the world while yet his name was at ita brightest. There was nocourt, no arena, no array of crim inal or ccenio dieplay before men and an- gels. All through bis life, uuknown to himself, without Bound of trumpet or Bcratch of pen or intent of heari, bis hia tory was writing iteelf, his condemnation was silently keepinc pace with his sin. By his fride moved always a slight figure, the figure (f a womau wbom he loved, ueepinea, trampiea upon. lamented witb nnavailing tears; a woman who loved him, revered him, immolated herself to him, recorded him. Nothing was further from her thougbt than to judgo bim ; but tbrough her he is judged. The heart that held him highesc brought him loweat Many have sought to break his fall in valn. We may quarrel with Froude, but tho qupstion is not now Froude'a day of luogmenl; it is CarlyleV. It is not mere llterary judcment that is to be pasBed. Carlyle is a prophet of life He was a teacher of men. He believed himeelf divinely commibsioned. He pro- ciaimea tne gospei ot oommoa tbiugs fj.i enunciavea principies lor naman prao tice. IIj hunohod invectivos against Btranger and friend fnr ignoranco ot what lio know, for indiff jrence to what ho preached. We have a right to judgo him by his works. A fiingular, an appalliug fate haa given ui such an opportuiiity to judgo as the centuries Beldom offer. We know tho Carlyles as wo know few t f our netgh bors. A ray of llght liai cloven their houso in twnin, and tho world beholds a philosopher revillng his generation with his llps and despoilliig his homo with his li -; nnrsing his own genius with un. fpifiug vlgor, represslng ntn wife's gnnius with unrelenting rigor. Gail Hamillon, in North Ameriean. "Suiart Ululstcrs." 1'eople have differeut idoas m to what constltutes amartness in a minlstor. A boy was once telling mo how smart his minlstor was. He said that one day be saw him coming across tho fiolda, and that when he came to a stone wall " he jumped right over it." Anothor regarded his minister emart becauseof his phyaical energy, having "Bmafhed a pnlpit and aeveral Biblos " in a short space of time. Some aro smart because they poeeoaa the facultyof making the worso appear tbe better reaaon, and some because of their ability to preach a great eermon from a small text, as " But," and sonie becausu they have a voice to make the "old meet-ing-houso ring" like thundor. As eome were once praising tho sermon of a inin ister of this class, to wbom they had just listened, Dr. Todd remarked : " To Bome the Liord has given lungsand to some braius." As for ourselves, we do not fan cy the tprm " smart " as applied to minie- ters. we snouid regard it as mapproprt ato as applied to eome of. tbe beat miuis ters, living and dead, tbat have blessed the world. Such tniniaters were Pnl, atid Edwards, and Wbiifield, atid Grifliu, and 1'ayson, and such miniBters aro Snur- ppod, and K. t. btorrs, and Jobn Ilall. We prefer to have ministers of this claas cnaractenzed as " aule minlstera, or "eodly," or "useful," or "BOttnd and faithful." When wo hear a minister characterizd as " smart," we sometimes thiuk that were the devil to be trans formed iuto an angel of iight, as we are told that be sometimes is, and to occupy pulpit, be would be recarded as tbe smartest of ull. Mtnythat should listen to him would go away enthuainbtic over bis amartness. He Keema thus to have usurped some pulpits. Aud his smart nesa appears in his success in provailing upon his hearera to adopt false doctrine, aud in ruiniDg souls. The more ability a minifter bas the better. But his ability should be sanctified aud consecrated. He should lay all his taleuta at the feet of the great Head of the cburch, aud employ tbem in building up his kingdom, and iu saving the souls for whom he died. We have kuown of some ministers of ordina' ry talents, who have been much moto uae- ful tban some who were eminent for their sraartneBS. Such ministers were Dr. Al vah Hyde, and both the Hallocks, Moses and Jeremiah. The Lrd raise up many otber sucb. JMeto inrk Ubtervtr. Don'l Let Worry EIII You. As I go and come between these two vaat cities linked together by the bridge, wbore grandeur grows on one tbe ottener he crosses it, I am more and more struck with the exprension of anxiety that most laces wear. Uickena said, slanderoualy, perbnpi, tbat it was tbe habitual and dia tinctive mark of the Ameriean people. Well, now wby do we worry ? Our so licitude is generally over things that never in fact disturb up. We fancy we are coming to want, when in truth we are in comfortable circumstances ; or that our time iocreasing; or tbat somebody is not tbinKino; so well of ua as be oucht, when positively it does not matter an iota what be thinks ; or that the child mav cet Bick aud die wben it bas a alieht cold : or that we sbaii lail m ourplans because of lm- periect strengtb, lorgetting tbat onr only right way is to do what in ns lies, and leave the rest to a Hieher Power. And all these tbing eat up our vitality, render ing us frctfol, prematurely old and miaer- anie. ibe iutl of Derbv used to aay, ' It is not work that kills, but the worry lest we sball not be able to cet throueh it." Sometimes I think it would be well for us to iniitate tbe example of Goetho'a clear-beaded and cheerful mothor, " who always begged her family and friends to nide trom ber every cotmog appearance of miefortue, and only to mention tbat which was past and had to be inevitably supporled." She could endure actual hardship better than the auspense and anxiety of dreading its coming; and her 8on, tbe foremost poet of Germany, was JiKe ber. i'ropbets ot evil were the hid eous compauy which be studiously avoided. He thought it was time enough to worry when he got into straita ; or, as Abrrtham lincoln admirably eipressed " It's no us to attempt to cross a bridge till we come to it." Tbousands are cross ing imaginaiy bridges, and drearaing of its going down with a crash whilo they are on it, with the horrid abvss beneath. Do tho duty and live up to the privilege of the present hour, and above all do not worry indeed, as the Master said, " take no thought tor the morrow." The raJter, tn Chrulian at Work. A Biid Slgu. There are few more certain evidences of tbe deterioration of a man's moral na turo tban tho increaaing tolerance with which he yiewa low Btandards of couduct as held by others in that Bphere of society m wblcn bis lot is east, llonesty natur ally revolts from disbonesty, purity from lmpunty, virtue from vice, aud altuougt goodness aud mercy are tolerant of the binuer as a person, they are never tolerant of tho Bin. That world-wear which briugs a man to Iook couteutedly, or even witb pleasure, upon forms of evil in others which before would at once have roused within bim tbe feeling of indlgnatiou at tbe wrong and ot pity for tbe ollender, is very far from betug a thlng to be proud of; for it reveals a wrongf ui acceptance of thitiga as they are, and a growiug distje lief in man and in tbe redoemincr power o Him who has made man. There are many hattful things in the conventiotialisniB which rule in human society; but there is uone which is more hateful than tbat which accepta evil as necessary evil, and is wiiiing tomaKB the best (or the worst) of it as lt is. What can be said of tbe moral worth of a community in which it can still be a matter of queation whether virti e or nonesty ia a possibility I Aud, above all, what oan be said of a Christian who repeats approviugly theovnlcal oues tion of the profligata V To be so tolerant of evil that contaot with it evokes no feeling of antagonism, is a sure evidence of moral and cpiritual dauger; to be so tolerant of it as to believe tbat little but evil exists, or is to be lookod for. is a cer tain sign of accomplished moral dertrada' 41 o -.. o.i'.i m PROBABLY NEVER In Uio lilstory of proprlctary mcdtclnos liag nny artlclo mct succcss nt homo cnttal to that whlcli liaa bccn pomcd upon IIoon'B Bahsa r.nit.LA.

Alter a few minntea oi silent thooght, Miss lut- ter, Baid: "Tfaero are two klnds of flolf-saonfice. I've been readiDg Jsne Carlyle's letters, and do you know X tbink that woman cotmnlttfd a in in commeDcing snch a life ol nelf-abnpgauon witu ber bus band. She cueht to have denied her self from the firtt the pl-Baure of sC' ribciug bereelf lor ber busband. liut what grleves mo most is to thiuk thero are to-day, and right among us, many another Jano Uiirlyie in tbe lead ing of lonoly, unloved lives, and, like ber, lookitig lorward to the crave lor peace and reat. Wby, I'd rather be an unloved old maid to tho end of my life, than to love and have my love turned to HBhes white my husband was living, as it didin tho heart of Mrs. Carlyle, and as lt ls dolng in tho hearts ot otber wives marired to selfish men. To be married to a man, and to be parted as wide as eternity beforn he dies, and yet walk Hlongnido in this world, is tho mostpitiful life I can imacine. " rhero is Mrs. bmitb, who died in Orpgon lastyear. Before they moved out West I used to stay tbere a great deal. remember one eveuing her husband came in to supper something af ter this manner Walking tbrough tbe entry be brought his hat and coat and threw ihem on tho lounge in the dining-room, and walked on out into the kitchen, where his wife was workmg, saying : " ' What I surper not ready yet t ' " ' lt is half an hourearlier than usual,' replied bis wife. " ' lliat don t make any diUrence. lt is time it ought to bo ready. lt is always tbts way, no matter when 1 come. " Mrs. bmith made no reply : but 1 sat where I could see her face, and an expres' f ion of pain passed over it, as if she had received n blow. "Alr. bmith knew she had been up several times with the baby tbe night be- iore, and bad awakened in the moming witb a beadacbp, and, to nse ber own ex pressioD, had felt so miserable she could hardly drag one foot atter tbe other, bnt had done her usual Monday's washing and picking up of papers and books scat tered over the house the day before. " Seems to me I never find my meals ready,' continued the man, oot. noticing or not caring about tbe tired Iook on tbe face of his wife. All you have to do is just to see to things here in tbe house, while l bave been iramping all over town in this hot eun. Everything has gone wrong to-day. Newtou has gone back on his word, and I'll warrant I shall lose a thousand dollars by him.' " After a sbort pause he continued : " ' Newton will not sell that land that jiins my section. He must have learned tbat the railroad was going tbat way. 111 warrant you told his wife ; 'twould be just like a woman.' " For about a quarter of an hour Mr, bmitb poured this kind of 'oil and balm on tbe heart of his wife, untll he felt his own annoyances lefs. After a few min utes' silence, he said, in a quick, harsh tone : " ' Do tflke that baby. He is enough to kill a natiou, witb bis everlasting bowl I should thiuk ho'd get sick of the sound ot his own voice. " iiia teeth trouble him ; can't you take him a few minutes, while I take up the supper (' and, with anothersigb, Alrs Smith placed tbe youngest of seven chil dren in bis father's arms, while I thought, How glad that woman must bo tbat she has four cf her children Bafo in heaven I do bope they can't Iook down on their mother's agony at these times when their fatber enters the house. "Come, now, hush your crying,' said tho tbougbtless no, tieartles father, 'What is the use in whiuing? lt does no earthly good.' The little one-year-old man ceasod his pitiful cry, as he rested in his father's strong arms, but the ono fortv years old commenced again his tirade: ' 'i i That. arvlr T Viono-ht. At Vornnn's shall lose on. Never should have bought it if vou had not persuaded me to do it That is all a man evermakes by listening to a wnman. " ' Whv. Edward, I did not " persuade " you. When you first spoke of it I thought lt did not seetn lor the best, but at last, I said, "Do as you think right about it." That was aU 1 said. " Iie was silent a minute, and his bov about twelve raised his head from his book, and gavo his father anything but a Iook of reverence, and, going to bis mother, took the pitcher from her haud, saying, 4 1 can go after tho oream, mother.' " I blessed that boy for his gentle thoughtluluess, although I saw his mother wipe a tear from her face with a corner of her apron. " I presurae you think I have exagger nted Mr. Smith's language," said Miss Rltter, " but 1 have not. Iie often spoke iu this way to his wife, and he is not the only man who does this. They vary their lauguago according to the degroe of re finument possessod, but the beit of men are essentially coarse and selfish, at times, with their wives. I remember the first time I ever heard a man blame a woman. My father was a Christian gentleuian, aud men in my eyes thtn were gods. " 1 was quito young, and weut with my parents to visit frieuds of the family who had met with a sreat loss of property. " The gentleroan, after giving an ao count ot the transactlon, said: 'If it had not been for my wife I should not bave met with the loss; she urged me to invest my money there.' " ' Why, 1 thought you talked about tbat investment before you were mar ried V said my father. " So I did,' tho man replied ; 'but did not make it untll after we were married. My wife thought it was just the right tbing.' " I used to think that all your acta wero just right,' said the wife, sharply. " Wttnn un wpra frninrr hnmn. fntlinr ' said, ' God pity the wife of a mau who lays blarae on her shoulders, instead of shielding her; it ia ao conlemntible for tho strong to oppress tho weak i wonder lt 1 have been unfortnnate n my acquaiutances." said Mles Ultter. when she waited in vain for me to reply to her rematks. " I felt when I waa reading poor Jane Carljle's letters thal her life, so full of weatiness, pain and heartache, was not so very unllko that of the average women I know. l'vo always thooght that the wives commenced their married life wtong, and are eomewbat to blame for tho eelfishness of their hns- bands. and. thereforp. fnr ihnlr nwn un. happlncss. It ls a woman's delight to BBoriOce for those she loves. and. when first married, they all lay themselves on tho altar of their love. Run for tho sllppers, the glass of wnter, the papers; offer the best ohair, the beat place by tbe fire and by the light. Break the back to broil ohioken because 'ho' likes it better than roast. Thev roaat themselves because ' he likes warm rooms in winter, and fretze the rest of the year becauso 'he' likes open windows. Cling to Ihe carriage as he drives at break-neck pace, and smilo as they hold their breath when ' he ' asks if 'tisn't j jlly ? " After a time 4 he ' forg.t to thank his wife for her acts of self-demal, and begins to take these things as his right. 14 lf the wifo asks for a horse sho can drive, he opens his eyes and informs her that he 'hates a slow-coacb.' If the wind from the open window gives her neural gia, he is turprised that she can't endure a breath of air. If sho dares to take the most comfortable chair in tho rooni. he has such a faculty of making her feel that be is a martyrthat f ho soon relinquishes it. 14 1 do hope not many women like Jane Carlyle cvmmtnd, at the first, their hus- bands lor not being like 'weak. amiable men, who put themaelvta out for other people's comfort,' but many a woman has cobfiraed her husband just as surely in his selfish ways, by her actions, as she could bave done by words. " iwt-n though womeu like to sacrifice themselves for the sakeof their husbands' comfort, when they realize what it will help tbe husbands become, is it not their duty to sometimes deny themselves, that their husbands may leatn the more blessed way of self-sacrifice V If women have found that self-deuial is the most blessed of all virtues, is it not wives' duty to give the husband an'opportunity to sometimee practice this salntly trait I " lf it is more bleesed to give pleasure than to receive favors, is it not wioog for the wife to deny h'.-r husband the chance of this greatest of bleisinga ? " ut course 1 am not expected to know. bnt I would like to ask, if it really is not the duty of the wife to teach her husband, or, at least, alluw him to practice, self sacrifice V" I send MisB Ritter's queation for wivee to answer. Mrs. C. F. Wildtr, in Chris tian at Work. Moral Iufluenco or Good Cooking. Some people may be inclined to smile at what I am about to say, viz., that such savory dishes, serving to vary the monot ony of the poor bard-working man's ordi- uary lare, altord considerable moral as well as physical advantage. An iustruc tive experience of my own will illusirate this. Wben wanderiog alone tbrough Norway in 185C, I lost the track in cross ing the Kyuleu fjtld, struggled on for twenty-three hours without foodorrest, and arrived in sorry plight at Lom, a very wild region. After a few hours' restl pushed on to a still wilder region and still rougher quarters, aud contiunued thus to the great .lostedal table-land, an nnbroken glacier of fivo bundred squaro miles ; then descended the Jos trdal itself to its opening on the Sogne Jjjrd five days of extieme bardsbip, with no other food tban flatbrod (very coarse oatcake, with theluxuryof two raw lurnips. Tben I reached a comparatively luxuriouB station (Rounei), wbtrebam and eggs and clartt Mere obtaiuable. The first glass of claret produced an tffect that alarmed me a craving for more and for stronger drink, tbat was almcst irresisti ble. I finished a bott e of St. Julien, and notbing but a violent tffort of will pre vented me from theu ordering brandy. I attribute this to the exhaustion conse queut upon the excessive work and insuf iioient unsavory food of the previons five days ; have made many subsequent ob servatious on the victims of alcobol, and bave noidoubt that overwork and scanty, taateleBiT food are the primary source of tbe craving for strong driuk tbat so largely prevails with such deplorable re sults among tbe class that is tbe most ex posed to such privation. I do not say tbat this is the only source of such de praved appetite. Lt may also be engen dered by tbe opposite extreme of exces sive luxurious pandering to general sensnality. Tbe practical inference sug gested by this experience and these obsex vations is, that speech-mtking, pledge signing, and blue-ribbon miesious can only effect temporary reaults, unless sup plemented by satisfying the natural appe ti'.e of hungry people by supplies of lood that is not only nuuiiioue, but savory aud varied. Such food need be no more ex pensive than tbat which is commonly eaten by tbe pooreat of Englishmen, but it must be far better cooked. I'opuiar Science Monthly. Words Well Spoken. Mr. Spurgeon, with characteristio plain ness and vigor, said iu a recetit sermon, "When a man gets to outtiug down sin, paring down depravity and making little of future punishment, let bim no longer preach to you.
