Tin noet Whittier. wbo . wan 70
vaars old in December, has oftou beeo
n.llrl the Buros of America. Tbe
same simplicity of language, the almost
oxnlnaiva use of common Anglo-Saxon
words, the description of lowly life and
thn humblest soenes in nature.thesame
whole hearted aud generous appeals to
whatever is best in humanity, pervaae
the writing of both. His love of Burns
..J !,; fi-at. nonnnintanco with his
UU ' 1 " M.M- - -
writings, are pleasantly told by luiu
self:
" Burns is to me the noblest poet of
nnr ruoa. He was tbe first poet 1 read,
na ha will be the last. One day one
of our preachers oame to stay all night,
and notioing, as we sat by the fire, that
T uriia intent noon a book, be said ; X
will read to thee, if thee likes, some
Doeras by KoDert Jjurns. a navu a
copy with me." So he got the book
and began to read, It was the first i
had heard of Burns, and my wonder
and delight over what I heard aro us
fresh still as if it were yesterday. I
bad heard nothing up to that moment,
it seemed to me, that had any right to
be culled poetry : and I listened as long
s the old man would read. I noticed
he left the book on the table ; so I rose
at gray duwn next morning and read
(or myself. I was hanging over the
book when the friend came down, and
then he told me he was going lurther
to visit such and Buch ineetiugs, would
be back at such a time, aud if 1 liked,
wmild leave the book with mo. Thee
may be sure I gratefully accepted his
offer. I read JJurna everji momout i
had to spare aDd this was one great re
sult of my communion with him. I
found that the things out of which
poems came were not, as I had always
imagined, somewhere away off in the
world and life lying outside the edge ol
our New Hampshire sky ; they were
rirht here about my feet and among the
Deoule I knew. The common things ot
our common life I found were full of
poetry. It was a new and a perfect
revelation."
Whittier's father, a Quaker, was of a
t..ill lonir-lived race, aud lived ou the
batiks of tbe Merriiuac, where the poet
was born, and where most ot hia lite
waa aoent. a non-resistant by principle
and practice. He, however, could not
see in his boy anything more than he
himself was, a promising plowman;
hut the boy's mother, with keener in

New Tork Timet, Deo. .Tib
Mr. Beecher'B text was the ninth
verse of the first ohapter of Ephesians,
and the theme of his discourse waa the
background of mystery whioh ur-
routida, or rather obscures, all attempts
to toaoh or understand tbe attributes
and nature of God. Men roust learn
these thines by their own expenenoe.
aud, in illustrating the differoooe be
iwpfln God and man. he said tbat man f
essential faoulties are precisely similar
to those of God, and only differ in de
grees, just as the child of four years,
w - - . . a
alrtini.' on his father s knee, has the
same powers of reasoning as his father,
only that power in the father is ma
tured, while in the child it is weak and
obscure. A man would not hold a
caudle out of tho window and say it
wild sunrise, and yet tbe same light and
the same warmth exist in the candle
that exist in the sun, though iu an lm
mensely different degree.
Speaking of the Trinity, Mr. Beeoher.
said hat he believed that there were
tWfi nersons united iu one Godhead
but if anv one should ask him why he
believed it, he should tell him frankly
that he did not know anything about
it, only that it was easier to believe
that which he thought ooinoided with
the doctrine of the Now Testament
than to oontradiot it. But he could
not nttemnt to exoloin if. Orthodoxy
govs that men must believe in tbe Trio
ir.v or thev cannot come into tho
- ...
ohurch. That is called orthodoxy, but
he culled it heathenism. It is not an
easv thinir. said Mr. Beeoher, for an
honest, conscientious man to know just
what to Dreach and what not to preaoh
A man who values morality, and who
has the good of his fellowman at heart
can not be careless as to tbe things he
ought to teach. His own head had
nftpn rofilad. and his mind had been
ereatlv troubled, when he reflected on
hia resnonsibility in this matter. It
was no easy matter to remove the rot
ten timbers and replace them with
sound ones, and not stop the voyage of
the ship. It was said that Adam was
nreated Derfect. It was also said that
Adam sinnod, and that in consequence
of that sin the wnole human race tell.
The human race had existed on oarth
(or thousands and thousands of years,
and had none on propagating aud mul
tiniuino- until all the waves of tbe
nrnan which had rolled in upon the
shore during those centuries did not
contain drops enough, nor the sands ot
thn re, narticles enough, nor all the
figures of the arithmetic numbers
Piionirh. to compute the preface, to say
nothing of the body, of tbe great bis-
tnrv of tho human race. 1 he numbers
of the human race were actually be
yond computation, and for thousands
nl thousands of years they hid been
born into the world, bad lived and
struggled, and finally died, and gone
where? "If you tell me that they
have all gone to heaven, my answer
will be tbat such a sweeping ot mud

HesaltblwIacM of MIIlo
Tf anv one wishes to grow fleshy, m
nint of milk taken belore re tiling at
night will soon cover tho soiawniest
bones. Although now-a-dsys we see a
good msny fleshy females, there are
many lean and lank ones wbo sign ior
the fashionable measure of plumpness,
and who would be vastly improved ia
health and appearance could their
figure be rounded with good, eolid
flesh. Nothing is more ooveted by
thin women than a full figure, and no
thing will rouse the ire and provoke
tha aoandal of the " clipper builds " as
the consciousness of plumpness in a ri
val. In cases of fevei and summer
complaint, milk is now given with ex
cellent results. The idea mat miia
"feverish" has exploded, and it is now
the physician's great reliance ia brings
ihpsnti, tvnhoid Datients. or thoso
ia too low a state to be nourished by
solid food. It is mistake to. scrimp
tbe milk pitcher. Take mors milk and
bay less meat- Look to yonr mjumsu,
h. larce-aiaed. well-filled milk pitch
ers on the table each meal, and you ak
so will have sound flesh and. save doc
tors' bills.
