THE MODEST FLOWER.
There is not a blooming flowoi•,
Whose si!Olt to me is so sweet,
Ai the violet in its bower,
Which triowind steals in to meet.
(A the wind, the wind, the wind,
I wish I were of its kind,
-; How I'd kiss the scented flower,
hidden in its secret bower!
It hides its blushes from men,
Whose vulgar gaze it shuns!
But waves its gentle stem
To the few and favor'd ones.
*Who its beauty would behold,
Must be fired with courage bold ;
He must:press his search amain,
Its blushing kisses to gain.
May '29, 1897.
The loveliest eye is that of faith,
Which upward looks to God ;
The neatest foot is that which has
The path of virtue trod.
The mieetest lips are those that ne'er
A word of guile have spoken,
The richest voice is that of pAyer,
One ne'er a vow has broken.
The prettiest hair is that which Time
Has silvered o'er with gray,
Or covers o'er an honest head—
It's beauties near decay.
The fairest hand is one that ott
Its deeds of kindness given ;
The purest heart is ono that Christ
Has satisfied tor Heaven.

THE LANGUAGE OF THE HEART.
Once came the loving Genius of the human
race to Jupiter and prayed, "Father, give to
men a better language. They have only
wards to express joy, grief and love."
"Have I not given them tears ?" said Jupi-:
ter, "tears of sorrow, tears of love?"
The Genius replied, It Tears do not speak all
the heart. Father, give them another speech,
that they may utter their infinite longkngs—
may paint the lingering light of the morning
star of childhood—orthe rosy dawn of youth,
or the golden glow of th'e life to come, shtd on
the clouds before them, after the sun has
Give them a language of the heart, my fi;th
Then Jupiter heard amid the melody of the
spheres the Muse of Song approach. He beck
oned to him and said: "Go unto men and
teach them thy language."
• The Muse of Song came down to Men and
taught them Music, and from that time the
heart could speak. •
TOE. LORD'S PRAYER.
Did you ever think, short though it is, how
much there is in it? Oh, it is beautiful! Like
a diamond In the crown of a queep, it unites a
thousand sparkling gems In one:
It teirles all of us, every one of us, to Wok
to God as our parent—" Our Father." .
It prompts us to raise our thoughts and de
sires above the earth—" Who art in heaven."
It tells us that we must reverence our hea
venly Father—" Hallowed be Thy name. ,, _
It breathes the Saint's reward—"Thyling
And a submissive, obedient s:drit—"l'by
willbe done on earth as it is in heaven."
And a del3endent trusting spririt—"(live ns
this day our daily bread."
And a forgiving spirit—" Forgive• us our
trespasses as we forgive those who trespass
. against us."
And a cautious spirli—"Deliver us fr4ln
And, lad of all, an adoring spirit--:"For

A BEAUTIFUL CITY.
Batavia—the capital city of 418 Wand of
Java—according to the desc , Option of a news
'paper correspondent, is a brilliant specimen
of ocientilltiler.dor. The hottses, which are
as white as snow, are placed one hundred feet
back from the street, the intervening space be-
ing filled with trees literally alive wi th birds,
and every variety of plants and flowers.—
Every home has a pi. 'an,. in front, and is de
corated viith beautiful *tures, elegant lamp s,
cages, eO,, while. rocking chairs, lounges, and
and ottomans, of the nicest description, fur
nish luxurious , accommodations for the family
—who sit there mornings and evenings. At
night the city is One blaze of light from the
lamps. The hotels have grounds of eight and
ten acres in extent around them, covered with
fine shade trees, with fountlains, flower gar
dens, etc. Indeed, so numerous are the trees,
the city almost resembles a forest. The
rooms are very high and spacious, without
carpets, and but few curtains. ?deals are
served up about the same as at first-class ho
tels in the United States, although the habits
of living are quite different. At daylight cof
fee and tea ere taken, to the guests' room, and
again at eight o'clock light refreshments. At
twelve breakfast is served, and at seven din
ner. Coffee and tea arc always ready, day and
night. No business is done in the middle of
the day, on account of the heat. The nights
and mornings are cool and delightful; birds
are singing all night. The thermometer stands
at about 82 degrees throughout the year.—

READ AN HOUR A DAY
There was a lad who at foarteen was ap
prenticed to a soap-builer. One of his resolu

at that rate, and he had an old silver watch.
left him by his uncle, which he timed his read
ings by. He staid seven years with his mas
t&, and said when he was twenty-one ; he
knew as much as the young squire did. Now
let us see how much time he had to read in,
in seven years, at the rate of an hour a day.
It would be 2555 hours, which, at the rate of
eight reading tours per day, would be equal
to. three hundred and ten days, equal to forty
five weeks ;'equal to eleven months ; nearly a
year's reading. That time spent in treasuring
up useful knowledge, would pile up a very
large store. I am sure it is worth trying for.
Try what you can. Begin now. In after
years you will look back upon the task as the
the most pleasant and profitable you ever per
HOW HE BROUGHT IN 11114 OAHE.
A miner at Pike's Peak * took his gun and
strayed a short distance from the camp and
shot a cub, not observing at the same time the
old bear, who was. near it hand, ready to
avenge the death of her offspring. The hunter
approached his game with an exulting air,
glowing in his success and anticipating the
astonishment of his companions to see him
march into their midst with an ample supply
of tender bear meet, when to his surprise he
saw a large bear bounding towards him, very
much determined totdemplish him at one meal.
Our hero dropped his gun and started off
like a frightened deer down the hill. His
companions saw him coming, tearing through
the brush, and sung out to him :
"What's the matter ?"
"Gi-gi-gi-git your guns—ready for a shot,'
tamme red he almost out of breath ; "I'm bring

J SEIRF CHILIWRS. —The relations be
tween parepts and children, and the rational
manner in which the latter are brought up,
are not the least admirable features of Japa
nese domestic life. Tie rules which govern
the system of education are directly( opposite
to the laws governing the state, which impose
the death penalty for every infraction of blind
and stupid obedience. The child, on the con
trary, is treated with moat inexhaustible pa
tience : and if persuasion and kind reasoning
must give place to punishment, the mildest
one that can be thought of is ever that resort
ed to. A traveller in that country, says :
"I have never witnessed the correction of a
child, nor discdsvered any instrument which
could possibly be used for such a purpose, nor
can I remember ever to have heard a little
voice sobbing or crying, yet I can assert with
truth that in no part of the world have I met
with such thoroughly well-behaved, amiable
children as those in Japan.",

The winter was not only terribly severe,
here, but had a wider range thap any we re
remember—the South not even excluded
from the River St. Lawrence to the Gulf of
Mexico. The stxeams and earth were frozen
to unusual depth, And the cold embracing the
whole of the co ot . named.
The show in A ril was one foot deep in the
South Mountain, and three on the Alle
ghenies, and a pinkie in Maryland.. Imme
diately after the snow the rainy weather com
menced, and almost without interruption for
the past two montlis—rain e.very few days, so
that the farmers could not get out their crops.
Only twice sun-shine in April , and very little
more in May. Some one remarked to me that
we had but one sun-shine in May up to the
20th. The sun could be seen through the
clouds, but no shine. The roads during the
past winter were terrible, where there was no
pike. The people - were 4mpletely . mud

JEFF. DAVIS IN CLOVER AND TUX SOUTH
TA RVING. —While the North is paying the
enormous public debt that had accumulated in
the effort to prove that there is no such thing
as treason, while from V parts of the Borah
misery has stretched its gaunt hands towards
us to beg for support, while we have freely
opened our treasure to prevent their starving,
we see but little inclination on the part of the
leading southern people to make an equal of ;
fort. On the contrary, fifty thousand dollars
have been presented to Jett Davis, which he
is about to invest in a summer residence near
Montreal, where he can coolly watch the fol
lies of the Northern people and ponder over
the fact that in the great Republic thire is no
crime such as treason.--V. r . Herald,
dearly all sorrow, while it lasts, depres
ses action, destroys hope, crushesanergy ; bat
it renders sensitiveness more acute, and sym
pathies more genial, and the whole character
less selfish and more considerate. It is said
that in nature, but for the occasional seasons
of drought, the best lands would soon degen
erate; but these seasons cause the land to
suck up from the currents beneath, with the
moisture, all those mineral manures, that re
store and fertalize the soil above. It is thus
with sickness and sorrow ; once surmounted,
they fertilize the character and develoge from
the deep fountains of the huou 114 .,, , t rt, a joy
and fruitfulness not otherwise attainable.
The Word of God is everything to the soul
of man ; it is the meat and drink to nourish
him, his raiment to clothe him, his armour to
defend him, his fire to warm, him, his light to
guide-him, his treasure to , enrich him, and the
house in which he may dwell. It is also his
counsellor to advise him, his friend to accom
pany and console, his benefactor G. bless him.
and his deliverer to save him.
DARK Irocas. —To every man there ere
many dark hours, when he feels inclined
to abandon his best enterprise--when his
heart's dtreat hopes appear delusive—hours
when 14 feels unequal to the burden, when all
his aspi?ktions seem worthless. Let no one
think that he alone has dark hours. They are
the touchstone to try whether we are current
coin or not.
The only way to be happy is to take the
drops of happiness as God gives them to us
every day of our lives. The boy must learn to
be happy while he is learning his trade ; the
the merchant while he is making his fortune.
If he fails to learn his art, he will miss his en
