Tiie very pxistnnee In the world Is the fullest proof of the existence of a devil: evil is the biggest part of hi name; take "evil** out and he is harm less: the presence of the devil is the only reason of temptation. Men are not wise enough to e-cape It: they are caught as fishes in a bunch: or a bird, singly : they rush into the thing blindly or are fooled by the desuit of Satan. As men set snares for the bird so the devil sets snares for men. and lie always cause men to do his dirty dork. He i- too much of a gentleman to on *age in some of the low down, eon temf.ible work we see men engaged in sometime. Many a gambler lias been made in the fashionable parlor, with the aid >f a beautiful woman Many a drunkard was first caught by the glass of wine in the hands of some bewitch Ing damsel, and many a soul has I teen trapped by the smile and caresses of a Magdalene. The net is too often in sight. The snare is covered, the victim set's not the danger until it is too late, then alas he finds himself powerless to overcome the enemy, now so firmly entrenched within. Sad picture, this, but a true one But there is a ray of sunshine that pierces the gloom that overhangs it Kn sin. habit or vice has ever stood unbroken in the presence of Jesus Christ. He breaks the chain of habit, he opens the prison of doubt, bo breaks the snares and nets. Invite him Into your heart and life and liberty and victory is yours.

Bees Eaten for Revenge. Bees are usually employed as manu farturers of honey, which Is every where considered a delicious food, bm. there are places where the bees them, selves serve as a food. The negroes of Guiana, when stung by a bee, proceed to catch as many as they can and in revenge eat them. It would be interesting to know what happens as an effect of the sting thus taken internally. In Ceylon the natives hold a torch under the bee swarm hanging to a tree, catch them us they drop, then carry them home, boll them and eat them.—Popular Screucii Monthly. What She Was Afraid Of. A little four-year-old remarked to her mamma on going to bed: "I am not afraid of the dark.” “No, of course you're not,” replied her mamma, "for It can’t hurt you.” ‘‘But, mamma.
