In field or forest, at tbe desk or loom. In roaring market place or tran quil room; Let me but find It in my heart to say, When vagrant wishes beckon me astray "This is my work; my blessing, ; not my doom. Of all who lire, I am tbe one by whom This work can best be done in the right way." Then shall I find It not too great nor small. To suit my spirit and to prove my powers; Then shall I cheerful greet the laboring hours. And cheerful turn, when the long shadows fall, At eventide to play and love and rest. Because I know for me my work Is best. Henry Van Dyke. THE PINK STRING. "Peter," said his mother, "I want you to do a little errand for me." "Yes, mother, tell me quick, for it's most school time.".

One of the old-time emperors of Germany was walking in a garden with his friend, the Car of Sa At a certain point in1 the pathway of the emperor was attracted by the an- ZtTfnl Kf a S0ldier Pacig back and forth between the rows of plants whv J erS-e COuId see reason why this soldier should be stationed vnlrVnd ,ln, a wonderlng tone of voice he asked the Czar why it was I am sure I do not know" was the answer. "He has been there as long as I can remember. I never stopped to ask why. But we will try to find out about it now that you have called my attention to it." And they turned the pages of the nation's history back two hundred years before they solved that prob lem. Then it was discovered that once when the first lady of the land was walking in the garden, she came upon some snowdrops fighting their way up through the grass. Lest they should be trampled down and de stroyed, she asked that a soldier be stationed there to protect them, and so pure, so high, so sacred that you ask the King of kings to keep it for you forever? Ho will do it. He longs that you shall put your treas ures in His keeping. - And it will be safe there through all the sunny days that come Into your life. Have you given Him your most precious treasure? The Epworth Herald. An amusing story is told of an old Scotch woman who was walking to church with her family one bright Sunday morning. They were passed by the Auld Kirk minister, riding at a tremendous rate, and the old lady said to her children: "Slccan a way to be ridin,' an' this the Sawbath day. Aweel, aweel, a gude man is merciful to his beast" Shortly afterward her own minis ter rode past at just as furious a pace, and the worthy old wife cried, "Ah, there he goes! The Lord bless him, puir man! His heart's in his wark, an' he's eager to be at it" AN AFRICAN BABY'S BATH. One morning I heard the baby cry ing as if his little heart would break, and I went to see what could be the matter with him, and found his mother washing him In front of her house. And do you think she had a nice little batb-tub and scented soap and warm water? Oh, no! But she held the little baby upon his little feet and was pouring cold water on him by the handfuls. The poor baby was screaming at the top' of his lungs and fightinng against the cold water as hard as he could; but the mother paid no attention to that, and went on with the washing. Did she have nice, warm flannel clothes to dry him with and others with which to wrap him? No; but when the washing was over, she lifted the baby up andwi.th her mouth blew vigorously into his eyes and ears to drive out the water, and that is all the drying he got Then she proceeded to dress him. r -fe 'Mi wrlfi 'effect Skin Dr. Woods Hntrfiincnn , -" wiiumviu JIJl Ul UiC xro. . , uJlin writers on modern therapeutics, says, richness and freshness of color are Richness and Purity of Blood uu vigor cr circulation.
