On life's rggel read, A. we journey each tay, Far, far snore of usnbhime Wonld brighten the way, If. ftrgetfhl of stlf And our troubles. we bad The will. and would try To make other hearts glad. Thaigh of the world's wealth We've little in store, And laber to keep raim want from the door, With a band that is kind. And a beart that is true, To make others glad There is muac we may do. And a word kindly spokea, A smile or a tear. Thoegh mewming but tries, Full ften may cheer. Each day of ona lives Some tresanre wonld add To be conscrious that we Had made somebody glad. These who sit in the darkness Of sorrow, so ierrr, Havec ne of a world Of solare and cheer. The"* m e homes that are desoilte, Hearts that are ud I, o'nme thing for some one, Make somebody glad. Somat~ tbr Sunay-The Right y to Leek at Life. IWilliamepnrt Breakfast Table.) We are apt, says a noted journal ist, to take life alrtogether too uen onsly. If we should wake up in the next world and find tiere was none, we should have occasion to reproach nnrselves for many neglecetedl op. portailties for a good time lost. We are too ambitions to get rich. Anld if there is alollher and a hot. ter world than this. those of our rentless, over.rteachimlig, toiling rich men, who find themselves where their gold is r elting and water is earce, may regret thast they did not smake ietter use of ltheir money il a counIItry where it was corrent mmd at a ltime whena it was at par. It was tile evidient intent of the L'reator to mnako Ibe lile of hiis rea. nres an enj oyable anmd a pleasalt me. To birds amd Iwars asldl ftihes.

The maun or woa man sa he does not mamke thabt use of life in an unnlatural and ungrateful, as wicked and ahanrl, ans the well. fed bird who sits in the suan atnd will not sing. And the parent who daoes ,ot delight in seeing children enjoy themselves is ai naunatural as the austere selep who aIkes and frowns when lambliagim sport upon tbemeadow in the amllight' Therein more sauihine than shaldow, if we only- look for it; tlere are more gay than grave thilgs; there is more of mnsic and melody, and joy and gladness in the tIatuoal universe thnla there is of sad andt solemn sontntl andl gloomy sight. The bright and glorious orb aronnd which our earth revolves lla only here and there a dark spot npou its saiingl surtface; the moon is always half in light, aid relects more of sunabine than shadow; the stars are ever bright, and when hidden by the darkness of intervening aloods, these are silverllned. There are Book into thbe runnntag brooeks, sermone in etooe, and good I. .verytlmig. There is mosie In the rustling wind, almd the babbliilg stream, the inmsects breathinlg bum, bthe sonu of the birds astd the whirr of cities; solemn authems song in fores leaves, and saublimest melody from Lhe ocan wave.

It is a glorioua life spread out for our en joyment for the three score years and ten of our allotment, if with happy hearts and cheerful minds we would make it so. Too ,any of us, ambitious of power, power to grow rich, annoyed by small rosa lions, make lifb a constant battle from the cradle to the grave. THE EGYPTIAN COMPLICATION. How is it going to end Of course, as a war between England and Egy pt alone, there is bat one solution to the question. England can whip Egypt with one hand anad her eyes shut at that. But there are some other things to be considered; questions that would discourage a smaller person then "Jobhn Bll." In the brat place, Arabi Pasbto is not a fool, and the Arats are not fools; in fact we would not be sor. prised if some of them do not pus. eem very near as much brain power as the -"curled and lierfamed" pet of Pall Mall! In the second place, there are more Mobomedans in the world than any other sect or nation ality. They are as thick as "leaves in Vallaumhrosia," when the old man died, at d have been growing ever since. VWe thinlik we may safely any there are three followers of the Prophet to one well fed Britisher. In the third place, the Egyptians have a power on their side that Ia said to never falil-the power of right. In the fourth place, John Bull deslrve4 a licking, and if Arabi has half tihe sense we give him credit for, he is going to get it. Not from the Egyptians, but fromt the ouited forces of the Mohonme. dans. Arabi is working slowly, hot vety sure. But Entgland takes good care that we hear only her aide of the story. No Anmerican corres Iondlents are allowed in the lines; so, of course, we hear (1) the truth ! Tite old Lountry always3 was famous for truthiulness. Well, if we make .tn.v bets ue'll bet on Arabi every tiname, for some day. soon there will be seen floatillg in the breeze a 'green flag," the fiPg of the Prophet; the uplrisilg of which has caused atrs unknown and covered the earth with blood. Thena will the world see what Arabi is after; for with tile raising of that banner its followers will awaue and atnswer! I)owu from the steeps of Russia; up from the plhinia of Tartary; out of the jnmgles of ludia they will pour, till the sands of Egrypt are covered with their shabdows, and then-well, John Bull will bave his hands full! An Egyptian war is a very insignuifeant allair, but a holy war is not; antd if we are not min. taken that is what we are going to see !--ErcAasge. ---t-s-- There is no power of luve so hard to get aud keel as a ki nd voie. A kind hand is deaf and dumb. it may be rough in flesh and blood, yet do the work of a soft heart, atad do it with a soft toeach. But there is no one thing that love so mach needs as a sweet voiod to tell what it means and feels, and it is hard to get it and keep it in the right tone. Bush a voles often speak worse than the bhert fels. It shows more Ill.will in the tone than ia the words. It is often In mirth that one gets a voice or a tone that is sharp, and sticks to him throughlb ie. Baoe ua thee get a slarp bome voice for asee and keep their heat voice for thoe, they meet elowhev, jest they woanld nve their bet akes and pies for gnesta, and all their soar feed far their own heard.

Physiologists bhare written muee of late respecting the duration of huran life. Bouos was the |Art one in France to raise the quest ion of its extreme limit. It was his oldpinion that mean, becoming adult at sixteen, ought to live to six times tbat age, or ninaety-six years. Tin eminent Freneb phyb.siologist, Florn, n fixing the mplete deo. relopment of man at twenty years, teaches tbat be should live five times as long as it take bhim to beomnae is adult. Aooordiag to this author the moment of a com. plete development may be recog. nised by the fact of the jaoetion of the bones with their apopbhae. Thisjunction takes place in borses at five yeSs, and the bees does not live over twenty oearn; with the out at twentr.eight months, and that animanl rarel lives over ten \ears. With man it is elected at thirty years and be only exerp tionally livl a beyond oueluhred years. The same physiologist admits, however, that humanu lih may be exceptlionally prolonged under eer. tain conditiolu of comfort, sobriety, treedom from care, regularity ot habits and observance of the rules of hyglene; and be terminates his Interestinlg stnuy with the aphaer lams: "Man kills himselfrather than dies." Other seletiets, who brave paid the grenteat attention to this nmb. jeer, lul! tile namlme views. The German pihy sidologist. Haller, smiuai tailed that men might lire to the age of two Ihuulreel years. A writ er in thle BIeOlne eientiflqne, il treatntg this rambj.et, teachell the counolmlmion, fromn the infor;nmationl hs has IHtw nhile to gather, thlIt ti thonugh the groat ages of mankind Ilave diminished, yet the men lenlgth of lite bas very sensibly in creased. There seems no reason to doubt that all have, to a great extent, the power of prolongiing their lives. Temnperance, nbriety, and regnlairi ty of habits ure of the first impor Iance. Living by rule, and auvoid. ilng extremes antld excesses. n) seem very irksome at first, bt eue tom soonu turtns it to habit, thus e curing happiiness and comfort as well as length of days. A proof of the benefit of efit of regular living is the feeact that old people who have once ettiled down ins kind of groove oflifeocn. not be unsettled therefrom, even for a few days, without datlger to health and life Itself. They mae' have, perhaps, their regular time for getting up in the morning., ocr tain methods of ablation, certain kinds muand qualities of food and drink, eartain honrs for rest, exer cdle and recreation, and a hundred other things, wbtich, taken tlear ately, may seem but Irifle, but Is ken in the aggregate make up their livesn, and they know and feel that they must not be unsettled. The wheels of life will ran along in groovea, bat soon wear oet oer rough, etrreguhar roads. Habits, whether good or bead, ar e aily formed when one is young, but when one gets on in years it is ter ribly dillMtIl and oftime deager. es to ast rthe aside.
