THE MYSTERY OF NATURE
By TIIEODORE TILTON'
The works of God are fair for naught,
Unless our eyes, in seeing,
See hidden in the thing the thought
That animates its being.
The outward form is not the whole,
But every part is moulded
To image forth an inward soul,
That dimly is unfolded, ,• •
The shadow, pictured in the lake
By every tree that trembles,
Is east for more than just the sake
Of that which it resembles.
The dew falls nightly, not alone
• Because the meadows need it,
But on an errand of its own
To human souls that heed it.
The stars aro lighted in the skies
Not merely for their shining,
But, like the looks of loving eyes,
Aare meanings worth divining.
The waves that moan along the shore,
The winds that sigh in blowing,
Are sent to teach a mystic lore
Which men are wise in knowing,
The clouds around the mountain•poak,
The rivers in their winding,
Have secrets which, to all who seek,
Are precious in the finding.
Thus Nature dwells within our reach,
But, though we stand so near her,
We still interpret half her speech
With ears too dull to hoar her.
Whoever, at the wariest sound,
Still listens for the finest,
Shall hear the noisy world go round
To musio the divinest.
Whoever yearns to see aright,
Because his heart is tender,
Shall catch a glimpse of heavenly light
In every earthly splendor.
So, since the universe began,
And till it shall bo ended,
The soul of Nature, soul of Man,
And soul of God aro blended !
A Chapter of Humor.

Philadelphia Sunday Transcript.
A PLAIN Trturti.—.No man has a
right to marry till, in ovary human
probability, assured that he can sup
port a family in his own station. Mere
love, or improvident matches seldom
turn out well: poverty comes, and
there is so muckscif reproach on either
side, that gall is added to its bitter
ness; their tempers are soured, and
they soon wish themselves unmarried.
But when trials assail an attached, a
reasonable pair, sorrow unites them
closer; the man, feeling how much de
pends on him, never'llags in his exer
tion, and often recovers the lost step ;
if not, there is still consolation in his
witb's unvarying love—in her sweet,
iio - feeless sacrifices. In these uncer
tain times, there are few commercial
men but have met - with reverses; and
they will often say, "Had it not been
for those at home, I should have blown
my brains out; I could not have stood
it." Wife and children i they are a
beacon to us in our troubled sea : we
renew the struggle when ready to sink
beneath the wave, and at last are sa
ved. At the worst, when all is black
—when friends are cooled or reproach
ful—when the most cruel doubts assail
us—there is still ono . who respects
and loves us; at home we are still dear.
ARTLESS SIMPLICITY.—Ono of the
sweetest incidents that - we have notic
ed for many a day—and ono which
shows the effect of early training, as
sisted by a pure and undefiled imagin
ation—has just fallen under our obser
vation., It is thus related:
A, lady visited .New 'York City, and
saw on the sidewalk a ragged, cold
and hungry-little girl, gazing wistfully
at some of the cakes in the shop win
dow. She stopped, and taking the 'lit
tle one by the hand„led her into the
store. Though she was aware that .
bread might be bettor for the cold
child than cake, yet desiring to grati
fy the shivering and forlorn one, she
bought and gave her the cake she wan
ted. She then took her to another
place where she procured her a shawl .
and other articles of comfort. The
grateful little creature looked the be
nevolent lady fully in the face, and
with artless simplicity said, "Aro you
God's wife ?" Did the most eloquent
speaker employ words to better advan
MODESTY. —.Nothing is more amiable
than true modesty, and nothing more
contemptible than that which is false:
the one guards virtue, the: other be
trays it. True modesty is ashamed to'
do anything that is repugnant to right
reason; false modesty is ashamed to
do anything that is opposed to the hu
mor of those with whom the party con
verses. True modesty avoids every
thing that is criminal; false modesty
everything that is unfashionable; the
latter is only a general, undetermined
instinct—the former is that instinct
limited and circumscribed by the rules
of prudence and religion.

The Spider's Web.
How. wonderful is the tenuity of the
fairy-like lines, yet strong enough to
enable the aerial voyager to run thro'
the air, and catch his prey which Nien
tures within his domain. It is so fiho
that, in the wobof the gossamer spider,
the, smallest of the tribe, are twenty
tubes, through - which is drawn teh vie
cid globule; the gummy matter it em
ploys in-spinning each of the , thick
nesses of about one-tenth of an
It takes 140 of these globules to farm a
single spiral line ; it has twenty-four
circumlocutions to go through, which
gives the number of 8,860. We have
thus got the average total number of
times between two radii of the circle;
multiplying that number by 26, the
number of radii which the untiring in
sect spins, gives the total amount_ of
87,860 viscid globules before the net is
The dimensions of the net, of Course,
varies with the species. Some will be
composed of as many as 150,000 lines;
yet oven to form this net, the spider
will only take five minutes Wonder
ful, indeed, is the,proeess by which the
spider draws the thread from its body,
more wonderful than any rope or silk
spinning. Each of these spinnerets is
covered with rows . of bristle : like,
points, so very fine that a space about
the size of a pin's head, will cover a
thousand of them. From each of these
points or tubes issues a small but sleri•
der thread whiCh unites with the other
thread; so that from each spinneret
proceeds a series of threads forming
one compoUnd whole; these are situa
ted about one-third of an inch from
the apes of tlit spinnerets; they also
unite and forin One thread, 624 of
which are used by the spider in form
