'Now, we havo a now Cure. A euro for blues, discontent, long faces, de pression, hopeless melancholy, loss of Interest In life; In short, all diseases which lead to loss of happiness and peace of mind. "Fi lends, attention: 4 'Tho new cure is called: "Tho Sing and Laughing Cure." Observe at tentively tho following rules and relief jvill ho obtained in a few days: 'First, stop thinking of self, and tho moment you find yourself brooding, begin at onco to sing. Sing every thing you know, and with all tho strength of your lungs. 'Hut,' says a melancholy voice, 'I don't feel like singing.' Never mind try it. Choose something bright and cheery, and the moment thioso despondent thoughts come back, break right out In a song. Wo havo heard of 'Songs in the Night,' and they wero tho best kind of songs, for they camo from a sick bed and told of victory. Try tho new cure, and if faithfully followed, the result will astonish you. 'Some one says, '! can't 6ing, nover sang in mv life." Well, vou can laugh. Go in your room alono every morning and laugh for fivo minutes and then go In after dinner and laugh a little longer. Now, wo do not mean a feeble, little laugh with no heart in it, but a good, hearty, jolly laugh which brings every musclo Into play, causes tho warm blood to circulate freely and good-natured feeling to wrap you as In a warm mantle. A laugh which makesyou feel tho world is full of good men and women. A augh which leaves your circulation in perfect order and your digestive pow ers ready fur anything. "Hut," says the gloomy woman, "I haven't a thing to lauiih about." That makes no dif ference. Laugh about nothing, and then laugh the harder because you have nothing to laugh about. Why, the first time a friend tried this new cure the entire family came in a frigh tened procession and gazed upon the laughing patient with faces as full of iwe and consternation that a forced laugh was quite unnecessary and with hearty peals of genuino mirth, the patient at last convinced tho family that she had not lost her reason. Once upon a time a big, hearty, breezy man came into a room full of long-faced, doleful, complaining crea tures, and, after looking around, he just laughed and laughed and laughed until he had every ono of thoso uielon- choly mortals laughing and then oh, miracle! every ono of them felt better, and they couldn't, for tho life of them, tell what it was all about, only that they felt instant relief. They had tak en a dose of "The New Cure." Try it this very day. Learn how to sing and laugh. Teach some ono elso. Put this paper down and laugh. Don't you feel better?" "In thed'oicst tribulation, In the very dark est nij-'ht, He wm looking to the litfht, lie was looking to tho litflitl Ami he saw it kiss the darknes to the beauty of th bright lie was looking to tho li'ht, To the light! Never sorrow for the morrow with ;i star of Hope in sight, He was looking to tho light. He was looking to the light! And ho saw the dark Wrong trampled saw the triumph of the Night lie was lool.ing to the light, To the light'." M. E. Hates, in Homo Cheer. True Charity. True charity is an active principle. It is not properly a singlo virtue, but a disposition residing in tho heart as a fountain whence all the virtues of be nignity, candor, forbearance, generos ity, compassion and liberality How as so many native streams. From general good will to all It extends its influence, particularly to thoso with whom wo utand in nearest connection and who are directly within the sphere of our good ollices. It prompts corresponding sympathies with those who rejoice and thoso who weep. It teaches us to slight and despise no man. Charity is the comforter of tho allllctcd, tho pro tector of the oppressed, tho reconciler of differences, tho Intercessor of offen ders.
