nanre it rat her to be chosen than great

great richetf would not fcny respect,
but a good name will eornmansi resiieet
which no one can take away. If a
child has a good name, rooted in Christ,
it will grow op until it reaches a height
ike yonder Drfght stars in the nrnia-
mont will grow- up until it reaches
that home above, where Its ftatne shall
bt recorded in the Book of Life and
dwell tin-over with Joans in Heaven.
Mr. Itheem, the President of the As

An "The Object of the Hunday Hchaol

object Was to Impress religious truth

them to do right-o point Ahem to

But there it a mansion cavemed out
of the solid, limestone cliff, with Its
drawing rooms, hall rooms, retiring
rooms and sleeping rooms, which for
half a century bus won the admiration,
of all beholders. Peter Allen, a bold
and during tmnggler, sought sanctuary

that she was a singularly handsome'

establishment of his sea-cavem as a

THE JUVTQRY OF ' POSl'tltiX

.The introduction of the Ixmlal sya

tries on the globe, bat been credited to
England, when, in 1840, covers and en-
velo)S werecteyisedjo curry letters oil
over tho kingdom, . at ono penny tho
single rati. This plan was adopted
through tho exertions of Sir How land
Hill, who bas. been aptly termed the
"father of postage stamps.", Jt now
appears, however, that there is another
aspirant for the introduction of the
poetago stamp system. In Italy, as
far back as 1818, letter sheet were
prepared, duly stamped in the left
lower corner, while loiters wore deliv
ered by specially appointed couriers,
on the prepayment ol Ihe money winch
the stamp represented a courier on
horseback, and wa of three values.
It was discontinued in 1830. .' Whether
Italy or Great liritain first introduced
postage stamps, other countries began
to avail themselves of this method for
thoJ prepayments of letter, although
they did not move Very promptly in
the matter. ,.i , ,., , .,.
Great Britain enjoyed the mouopoly
of stamps for three years, and though
the first stamps wore issued in 1840,
sho has tnsiio fewer changes in her
stamps than any other country, and
has suffered no change at till 'in tho
main design tho portrait of Queen,
Victoria. ,In other countries, notably
iu our own, tho Sandwich Islands, and
the Argentine Republic, the honor ol
portraiture on the stamps It usually
distributed among men in high public
positions, but in . Groat Britain th
tjueen alone figures on her stamps, and
not even the changes that thirty-five
years have mado, in her liico are shown
