Dr. Talmage in Ladies' Home Journal. Those who were so unfortunate as to have been born and brought uo in the city know nothing absut that chapter in a boy s history of which. 1 speak. HIDING EGGS FOR EASTEU. About a month before Easter there comes to the farmhouse a scarcitv of eggs. The farmer's wife begins to abuse the weasels and the cats as the probable cause of the paucity. The feline, tribe are assaulted with many a harsh "Scat!" on the suspicion of their fondness for omelets in the raw. Custards fail from the table. The Dominick hen 3 are denounced as not worth their mush. Meanwhile, the boys stand round the corner in a broad grin at what is the discomfiture of the rest of the family. The truth must be told that the boys, in anticipation ofr Easter, have, in some hole in the mow, or some barrel in the wagon house, been hiding eggs. If the younsters understand their business, they will compronrse the matter, and see that at least a small supply goes to the house every day. Too great greel on the part of the boy will discover the whole plot, and the charge will be made: "De Witt, I believe you are hiding the egg?!" Forthwith the boy is collared and com pelled to disgorge his possessions. .Now, there is nothing more trying to a boy, than, after great care in accumu lating these shelly resources, to have to place them in a basket and bring them forth to the light two weeks before Easter. Boys, therefore, manage with skill and dexterity. About this time of the year you see them lurking much about the barrack and the hay-loft. You see them crawling out from stacks of straw and walking away rapidly with their hands behind them. They look very innocent, for I have noticed that the look of innocence in boys is proportion ate to the amount of mischief with which they are stuffed. They seem to be determined to risk their lives on mow poles where the hay is thin. They come out from under the stable floor in a despicable state of toilet, and cannot give an 7 excuse for their depreciation of ap parel. Hens llutter off the nest with an unusual squawk, for the boys cannot wait any loneer for the slow process ot laying, and hens have no business to stand in the way of Easter. The most tedious hours of my boyhood were sper.t in waiting for a hen to get off her n st. Xo use to scare her off, for then she will get mad, and just as like as not take the egg with her. Indeed, I think the boy is excusable for his haste if his brother has a dozen eggs and he has only eleven. EASTER IX TIIE OLD FAK3I IIOUSE. At this Season of the year the hens are melancholy. They want to hatch, but how can they? They have the -requisite disposition, and the capacity, and the feathers, and the nest, and everything but the eggs. With that deficit, they sometimes sit obstinately and defy the boy's approaches Many a boy has felt the sharp bill ot old DommicK-stnice tne back of his hand, inflicting a wround that would have roused the whole farmhouse to see what the matter was had it not been that the boy wanted to excite no . . .1 . l e i- l : suspicion as to me nature 01 ms exueui- ion. Immediately over the hen s neaa comes the bovs cap. and there is a scat- r a 1 people throwing up their windows to see who is killed. The holidays are robbsd of half their life because some wiseasre will persist in telling him who Santa Claus is, while yefhe is hanging up his first pair of stockings. Here the boy pays half- j a-dollar lor a bottle of perfume as big as his ' ! nnger, wnen, our. ot town, tor noining ! but the troubla of breathing it, he mav smell a country full of new-mown hay and wild honeysuckle. In a painted bath tub he takes his Saturday bath careful lest he hit his heai against the spigot, while in the meadow- brook the boys" plunge in wild glee, and pluck up health and long life from the pebbly bottom. Oh, the joy of the Spring day, when, after long teas ing of mother to let you take off your shoes you dash out on the cool grass barefoot, 1 or down the road, the dust curling about j the instep in warm enjoyment, and, henceforth, for months, there shall be no shoes to tie or blacken. Let us send the boys out into the coun try every year for an airing. If their grandfather and grandmother be yet alive they will give them a good time. They will learn in a little while the mys teries of the hay-mow, how to drive oxen and how to keep Easter. They will take the old people back to the time when they themselves were yourg. There will be for the grandson an extra cake in each oven. And grandfather and grandmother will sit andwatoh the prodigy, and won der if any other family ever had such grandchildren. It will be a good thing when the evenings are short and the old folk's eyesight is somewrhat dim, if you can set up in their house for a little while one or two of these lights of childhood. For the time, the aches and pains of old age will be gone, and they will feel as lithe and merry as when sixty years ago they themselves rummaged barrack, and mow, and wagonhouse, hiding eggs for Easter.

Leaksville Uazette. My Dear Dr. Pritcard : Sometimes I think that too much em phasis is laid upon the physical miracles of Jesus Christ. These are wonderful, to be sure, but, there is always room for doubt or denial. Skepticism may say that witnesses are both fallible and falla cious, &c. The greatest miracles wrought by Jesus Christ, miracles that nobody doubts or denies and the true s'gnificance of which very few comprehend, are the miracles of eternal truth, contained in His social, political and spiritual teachings. Mankind has been struggling for centuries to solve the problems of life; to form peaceful, thriving and happy societies ; to create aud distribute wealth ; to repress crime and abolish poverty ; to maintain governments ; to enjoy life, liberty and happiness. What endless laws and theories and maxims and constitutions have been designed by the genius, and discussed and interpreted and warped and twisted by the reasons of men. The Code of Solon ! The Code Napoleon ! The Liws of the-Twelve Tables! The United btates Declaration of Independ ence ! The North Carolina Revised Statutes !
