True worth is being not seeming;
Iu doing each day that goes by
Some little good not in dreaming
Of t;re!it things to do by and by;
For whatever men pay in blindnngi,
And spite of the fancies of youth,
There's nothing so kindly us kindness,
Aud nothing so royal aR truth.
We get back our mete us we measure
We cannot do wrong aud feel right;
Xor can we give jiain and gain pleasure,
For justice avenge eRch slight.
The nir for the wing of the 6parrow,
The bush for the robin aud wren,
I'.iit always the path that is narrow
And straight for the children of men.
We caniiot make bargains for blisses,
Nor catch them like fishes In nets,
And sometimes the thing our life misses
Helps more than the thing which it gets.
For good licth not in pursuing,
Xor gaining of great or of email;
He just iu the doing, aud doing
As we would be done by, is all.
Thro' envy, thro' malice, thro' hating,
Against the world early and late,
No jot of courage ubatiug
Our part is to work and to wait;
Aud slight is the string of his trouble
Whose wini. iiif are less than his worth,
l'or lie who is honest is uoble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth,
The cat is a very interesting ani
mal. He is a small fur dog that
meows, and lias whiskers and sever
al other things, lie has four paws
two fore paws and two behind ones
and a tail. He has been known
for many years, two of them having
been said to be on the Ark, where he
must have been tied up, or what
would have become of the rats? Cats
don't get to be cats until they are a
year old, when they stop being kit
tens, which they are born as. It
takes a kitten several weeks to get
his eyes -open, if he doesn't get
drowned before that time, and he
scratches when he is mad. My father
says camels used to be cats, but got
their backs up one day and couldn't
get them down again, and so became
cimels. I never heard a camel meow
but I suppose they can, because they
can tlo most anything, having seven
stomachs and going many days with
out water.
The dictionary says a cat is a carni
vorous quadruped, but that does not
sound like a cat. The old Egyptians
used to be very fond of the cat, treat
ing him like a member of their own
family, and making mummies out of
him when he died. Some of these
mummies still live. They used to
hang people for killing oats in Egypt,
because the cat was supposed to be
sacred animal, being a sign of the
moon, probably because they are gen
erally out all night. W e have a cat
named Tom, and he has six kittens,
which he washes their face every day
just like me.
Cats never fall out of anything
without landing on their feet, which
is why their feet are so soft and they
have to be killed nine times before
thty die, aud sometimes they don't
even' then. They eat milk when
tame, and when wild they cry like a
baby until somebody comes to see
what is the matter, and then they
eat him, which is fatal, and teaches
people to mind their own business
and not to go to seeing what other
people's children are crying for.
A cat's eye is a very queer thing
looking like a slot machine all day
Mini an agate at night, seeing better
iu the dark than in the light like
witches. Therefore they are said to
be friends of witches and some people
don't like them on that account, but
I do.
The two best cats that ever li vet:
belonged to Dick Whittington, May
or of London, who went out West
and killed a lot of rats at a dollar
head and took the money home to
his master to get to be Mayor with
and Puss in Boots, who stole his mas
tor's clothes and ate a giant, thereby
making his master owner of the farm
ami husband of a rich girl, whose
father died and left it all to her.
My cat can't do anything like this,
but he gets there just the same and is
very gentle to my little brother, who
pulls his tail and doesn't have to wish
lie hadn't.
N Altogether I don't know what we
should do without cats, especially
those that like to have them lying
around just as we do.

Golden Rule.
Someone once asked a little girl
whether her mother's hair was gray.
"I don't know," was the innocent re
ply, "I can't see the top of her head,
and she dosen't ever sit down."
Solomon says of the good house
keeper: "one lookelli well to tne
ways of her household." .The wo
man who is always overrun with
work, never seeing a chance to rest
for a single minute, who is always
bustling about, anxious, burdened,
ler whole aim being, to all outward
appearance, to "get her work done,"
busy, busy, busy, catching the
broom to whisk away an infinitesi
mal spot of dirt here, flourishing the
dust-brush to tear down an imagin
ary cobweb over yonder, ripping
open all the feather-beds in the house
to see whether some stray moth has
stolen a march on her and sought
rest beneath the downy contents,
scalding up all the preserves in the
cellar once a week for fear they
might begin to work when she didn't
know it, running up stairs and down,
out to the barn and into the attic,
tiring herself and everybody else in
the house we have all seen just
such women, and probably not one of
us believes such a one to be the wo
man to whom Solomon in his wis
dom referred as looking well to the
ways of her household.
There are better and nobler meth
ods of doing this than cooking, wash
ing, cleaning, and scrubbing. A wo
man's work is not finished, her duty
not entirely performed for her fami
ly, when she has made and mended
their clothes, cooked their food, and
mopped the kitchen floor. If she
looks wvll to the ways of her house
hold, she will see to it that her hus
band has her companionship as well
as a starched shirt iront; that her
children have food for their minds,
as well a3 good dinners; that her
own face wears the smile of love and
contentment, instead of the vexed
frown and wrinkles of daily worry
over the absorbing questions. What
shall we eat, drink, and wear?
No woman who is a drudge in her
kitchen can dojustice to her family.
The husband of such a wife eats his
meals as quickly as possible, and
goes where he can find somebody to
talk to him, and with whom he can
talk about something beside bread
and potatoes, and wood and water.

Jewels of a Woman's Life.
There are so many jewels that
might be worn day ana night; so
many gems that are always anu on

with brightness ; there is your bril

beautiful one of Loving-kindness

than jewels dug out of the earth?
For, indeed, these jewels come from

What Religion Isn't.
It isn't going to church to see what
the people wear, or to find fault with
the preacher. It isn't running into
debt for things you don't need, and
never paying for them. It isn't
giving away a great deal of money
)ublicly, simply that the people may
speak well of you. It isn't staying
away from church when you know
a special collection is going to be
taken. It isn't leaving ono church
and joining another whenever you
do not like the preacher. It isn't
reading so many chapters u diy,
or saying one prayer over and over.
It isn't sitting in a house and look-
ng solemn, and refusing to eat any
thing cooked on Sunday. It isn't
lutting all the big apples on the top
ofthe measure and the little and
rotton ones on the bottom. It isn't
telling other people what to do in
prayer-meeting, and letting the devil
tell you what to do in business mat
ters. It isn't whipping your boy for
smoking while you have a cigar in
your own mouth. It isn't telling
the servant to say, "Not at home."
