Why is the wrong so strong, -- ,
And the right so weak and poor/
Why goes black bread to the patient man,
And gold to the aril-doer?,
Why dies the noble cause,
We periled Ilfe to sere,
While the baleful growth of an upstart sin
Crershadows a nation's grave?
Why died that widow's son?
. lie was all site bad to bless.
The children crowd round the selfish heart,
And gale buf a cold caress.
Who reads tho 4 riddle right?
And who can answer why
T`hecelonds sweep over our mortal life?
Not you, braie priest, nor 1.
Why came a throbbing pain "
To that heart so firm and fair,
While the crown of, wealth and of blithesome
Some - leaser angels wear?
Why went that young life out
• On honor's perilous mad ?
The carping tongue and the Jealous mind
Stay here to wound and goad.
A picture once I saw—
Three muses against the sky ;
And the heaviest cross was the highest one;
Perhaps that'answers why.
To wave the banner and wreath
Was the privilege of the Jew;
But the boon to carry that heavy cross
Was reserved, dear Lord, for you.
:.!>elccled Tale.
March's Wife.
" Answer me,. Christie," and • the
speaker threw himself on the grass
with a poorly-disguised yawn. -
The person -whom he addres sed.
was . only a little country girl, and
during those perilously sweet days
that Guy Meredith had spent in the
old farmhouSe, - Christie North had
become used to " amusing" the
handsome - young fellow. lie had
been attracted to this quiet Village
that lay between the hills, by the
trouting, of which he was passionate
ly, fond ; 'and when Mrs. North, a
widow and Christie's mother, was
asked for one of the cool,old-fashioned
rooms and a daily lunch, she consent
ed to the plan which was to place
many, welcome dollars in _the family
purse. To her mother, Christie was
'a child, and, little thinking that the
dark-eyed stranger was to affect her
daughter's, happinesi in' any way,
the good woman sent the young
couple out day after day, with fish
ing tackle, lunch-basket'.and book.
The book was a supe4uity, however,.
for. Gay Meredith liked far better to
talk to the girl, looking into her ba 7
byish face the while. Having spent
seventeen years of her life in the lit
tle village where she was born, Chris
tie North knew little of the world
outside, and when the enthusiastic
young fellow described in glowing
language the beautiful places he had
visited, she—
"Listened. while a pleased surprise
Looked from her lung-lashed hazel eyes..
To-day was like the other days
which they had spent together, but a
shadow seemed to'Thill over them as
they sat • there, the girl with an anx
ious look on her lovely face.
" 1 don't feel like amusing any one
just now, Guy," she said. " I wish
you would tell me why you have
been so quiet all the day long; you
have hardly spoken to me for the last
twO hours."
Guy • Meredith . laughed a little
-nervously, and pulling the petals
from a daisy, one by one, answered,
abruptly, " I'm going away to-mor
Going away !" echoed the girl,
catching her breath as she spoke. •
" Yes; I received a letter from
mother last night, by which she in
formed me that she and my cousin,
Kate Matherson, arc awaiting me at
Newport, from whence we are to go
home together. am to be married
to Kate next month, and I suppose I
must go. You will miss me a little,-
Christie ?" he continued, thinking
that the sweet face had never seemed
quite so lovely before.
" While we have,been talking,-Mr.
Meredith, the sun . has gone down,
and mother will be anxious about us,"
answered the girl; and, without a
'glance at her companion, she swept,
the daisies from her lap and walked
,hastily toward the house.
The young man gathered up the
book, basket and lines, and was about
to join her, but she was already be
yond call, and with a sigh he walked
slowly across the meadow. •
"Christie had. a headache, and
didn't feel like coining down stairs,",
Mrs. North told Meredith that night;
but the next morning she came down
to breakfast, and after Guy Meredith
had taken her mother's hand, she
extended her own with a quiet
" Good-bye, Mr. Meredith ;", and
thus they parted.
That night John March called.
For six months Christie had worn on
her hand a little circlet of gold; that
meant far*more to John March than
his large farm with its broad acres.
To the Mayville people John March
was the common friend to whom all
might go for help and sympathy, and
they never failed to find it. All the
little babies held their little arms to
be gathered to his great - strong ones,
and to the children he was a Kriss
Kringle who stayed.with them all the
year round.
Was it any wonder that when this
man asked Christie to be - his wife
she gave the promise and accepted
her fate at his hands? Since her
babyhoodshe had been taught to re
gard. John March as the embodiment
of manly virtue and goodness, and it
had been no hard natter to feel that
her future life was to be spent with
him ; but as for analyzing it, the
child had not thought of it until
Meredith came.
John March had Wetly watched
the two through the long summer
days, feeling that his heart's treasure
was slipping away from him, but
treating Christie with the same gen
tlene3s and deference that ,he bad
ever given her. . , ' _
John," said Christie, that night,
" I must not wear this any longer,"
pointing to the tiny ring which lay
in her hand, and holding it out to him.
" Why, Christie?"
" Because I don't love you,"
.-Ladrit Journal
"That pains me, dear • don't say
it again, please," answer ed the man
as hf took the little cold hands in his
own. "Do you think that 1 have
been so blind these many days, child;
that I haven't seen your trouble ? If
I thought that it would make you
happier to release you from the prom
ise you gave me last winter, I would
not hesitate a moment. But, Chris.,
tie, let me try to win your love.
Trust your happiness in my keeping,
and, please Giod, you never shall re
gret it"
So Christie put on the ring again,
and with it the responsibility which
she was so anxious to lay aside.
Mrs. North was too busy during
,days that preceded the wedding
to n rice her daughter particularly,
but e girl's. apparent indifference
to all matters concerning the wedding
surprised her. When David North
close his eyes on this weary world,
his . wife took ' the "burden - of life
again," and carried-it even better
than her husband had done. Christie
was not like-berimother. She had.
accepted the loving and petting that
bad always been lnvished upon her.
as the flowers take the sunshine, and,
indeed, she- had received little else
during her life. 1 But here was some.
thing that Mrs. North eould.not un
derstand, and she soon became used
to Christie's quik manner and pale
face. John March remained unchang
ed. Ever thoughtful for the wants
of others, and always very tender 'to
Christie, he prepared his home for
his bride and hid his troubles in his
own heart. -
One beautiful October day, when
the trees had put on their gorgeous
colors, Christie was married. AR•
John March's wife she occupied a
position vastly different from that
which Christie North had filled, and
almost before she was aware of it her
hands were • full of •work that she
knew nothing- about. Coming in
contact with the sorrow of others,
she was learning to forget her own.
But in spite of an increasir.g interest
in ber new surroundings, ;the pale
face grew paler still, and one day ber
husband said :
"Would you like to go to M., next
week, Christie ? I can leave home
very nicely just at present, and, •if
you we will take a vacation and
see i( we can get a little more color
up there among the mountains."
Five days hence we find them in
one of the hotels. at M. To Christie,
everythitig was new and delightful ;
the' music, the ••haodsome ladies in
their bewildering,costumes, the clear,
cool, lake, and 'the grandly solemn
mountains. With the eagerness of a
child She entered into the plans which
were made for' h t enjoyment, and
before they had- en there a week.
she was. looking more like herself
than. she done since her marriage.
Wlie,n the ladies found that she
was married, they fell down, figura
tively, and Worshipped her beautiful
face. The lovely Mrs. March " was
in great demand, and to say that
Christie enjoyed it all would poorly
'express her pleasure.
One afternoon, John March and
his 'Wife were walking togetheon
the piazza. Somehow Mrs.
was growing Very proud of her hus
band. She hardly dared to own that
it was. anything more than pride
which brought the light to her eyes
and the flush to her sweet face when.
ever she looked at the man whose
goodness had won her respect. long
ago. Never - since her wedding-day,
had her husband offered Christie a
caress, waiting with, quiet patience
until the girl should know her own
heart. As they stood still for a mo
ment to watch some . new arrivals,
Oily Meredith came up the steps with
several ladies. As he glanced at the
two standing there together, a mo
mentary look of pain swept across
his face, but, quickly regaining his
composure, he raised his hat and'
passed into the house. As for Chris
tie, there was one quick heart throb,
and then she grew strangely calm ;
so calm and quiet was she that her
husband glanced down at .her more
than once, after they had resumed
their walking, with a curious look of
anxiety on his face ; but he was too
wise to disturb by any careless words
Christie's questioning heart.
That evening Mr. and Mrs. March
were presented toMrs. Guy Meredith,
a tall,gray-eyed woman,who followed
her young husband everywhere, and
after Christie had exchanged a few
words with her, she pitied the man.
who had been so much to her.
Two days after, John March was
called home on business, and Christie
wondered to find herself longing for
his return. As she came down to
dinner on the last day of her hus
band's absence, Mrs. March found the
house in a state of confusion. Every
body was either scanning a newspaper
or talking anxiously to neighbor.
In answer to a surprised look of
Christie, a lady said :
" There has been a fearful railway
accident ; over twenty people were
instantly killed, and the number of
the wounded is not yet known."
." What train was it?-" asked the
girl; with trembling lips.
" T he noon train down ran off that.
high embankment three miles from
the'station ; did you have any friends
on the train 1" continued the lady,
kindly placing her arm around Chris
tie as'she saw her white face.
"My husband," replied Christie ;
and then she went•up to her room
and.knelt down by the window.
Through that long afternoon such"
revelations. came to her as she had
never dreamed of before. All the
great love toward her husband which
had been glowing for many weeks
came upon her there, and, crushed by
her sorrow, she knelt despairingly.
and motionless. , Outside some chil
dren were playing on the and.
their childish laughter floate ' her
ears • through -the open window. A.
bee flew in, filling the room with its
drowsy hum, and then all .was quiet
again. On the .peaceful boiotn of the
lake a few boats floated idly about,

The first great secret of good health
is good habits, and : the next is revu
larily of habits. 'They are briefly
summed up in the following rule's: •
. 1. SLEEP.—Give yourself the nec
essary amount of sleep. Some men
require five -hours of the twenty-four;
others need eight, 'Avoid feather
beds; Sleep in a garment not worn
during the day. To maintain robust
health, sleep with a person as healthy
as yourself, or no one.
2. Dazss.-4n cold weather, dress
warmly with . underclothing. Remove
muffler, overcoat, overshoes, 'etc.,
,when remaining any considerable
- length of time in a warm room. Keep.
your feet warm and dry. Wash them
in warm water two or three times
week, 'Wear warm stockings, large
boots and overshoes when in the snow.
or wet. Wear a I;ght covering on the
head; always keeping it 'cool.
3. CLEANIANESS.—Have always a
pint or quart of water in your sleep
ing room: In the morning, after
washing and wiping hands anti face,
then wet with the hands every part
of the body. Cold water will not be
disagreeable when applying it with
the bare hands. Wipe immediately;
follow by brisk - Tubbing' over the
body. The whole operation need not
take over fire minutes. The result of
this wash is the blood is brought to
the surface of the skin, and made to
_circulate evenly throughout the body.
You have opened the pores of the
skin, allowing impurities in' the body
to pass off, and have.given yourself
in the operation a good vigorous
morning exercise.' Pursue this habit
regularly" and you will seldom take
4. INFLATION or 'FILE LuNos.- 7 -Five
minutes spent in the open air' ' a ft er
dresssing, inflating the lungs by in
haling as full a breath as possible,
and pounding the breast during the
inflation, will greatly enlarge the
chest, strengthen the lung power, and
very effectively ward off consumption.
5. DIET:-1f inclined to be dyspep
tic,'avoid mince pie, sausage and oth
er highly-seasoned food. Beware of
eating too freely of soups ; better to
eat food dry'enough to employ the
natural saliva of the mouth in mois
tening it. If inclined to over-eat,
partake.freely of rice, cracked wheat,
and other articles that are easily di
gested. Eat freely of ripe fruit, and
avoid excessive use of meats. Eat at,
regular hours, and lightly near the
hour of going to bed. Eat slowly,
' thoroughly masticate the food. Do
not wash it down with continual
drink while eating. Tell your funni- .
est stories while at the table and for
an hour afterward. Do not engage
in severe mental labor directly after
hearty eating.
6. ExERCISE. Exercise, not to
violent, but sufficient:to produce a
gentle perspiration; should be bad in
the open air.
dition of the mind has much .to do
with health. Be hopeful and joyous.
To he so avoid business entangle
ments that may cause perplexity and
anxiety. Keep-tout of debt. Live
within your income. Attend church.
Walk, ride, mix in jovial company.
Do as nearly right as you know how.
Thus conscience will always be at
ease. If occasionally disappointed,
remember that there is no rose with
out a thorn, and that the darkest
clouds have a silver lining; that sun
shine follows storm and beautiful
spring succeeds the dreary winter.
Do your duty, and leave the rest to
God, who doeth all things well.
young working lad of Woolwich was
on the river bank when the Princess
Alice wentdown in the recent Thames
collision, and, being a good swimmer,
at once dashed into the river arid
brought out the struggler next to
him. He at once plunged in again,
- and rescued a second, to rush in
again and ileturn with a third. As he
was making his way thus to the bank
he saw a )small bundle, which he
guessed must be a baby. He caught
it with his teeth, and thus brought
the fourth rescued life to shore. Not
then able to swim in again, he carried
the baby home to his mother's hum
ble dwelling, and placing the - little'
orphan in her arms, said : " Here,
mother, nurse this baby for, me; I
will work for it. as long as I live."
This anecdote beautifully illus
trates the Savior's ig,de eming grace.
Christ finds the sinlrer perishing in
the dark waters of sin. He rescues
him, gives hide into the care of His
church and says, in the language of
the good Samaritan, " Take care of
him, and when. I come again I will
repay thee."—Christian Voices.

• A correspondent writing, from
Foughkeepsie, N. Y., says: On the
western shore - of the Hudson, nearly
opposite this city, a hamlet • known
as Lewisburg shows piominently on
the mountain-side. " Near Lewisburg
an old stone quarry and heavy un
derbrush affords cover for a number
of foxes. Two young men named

mountain-side.A couple of stones
were removed, disclosing a large fiat
- boulder, which, after displacement,
revealed an opening about three feet
across and four feet deep. , From
the bottom of this an opening, large
enough to admit the body of a man,
extends into the mountain-side. The
bed of the passage is nearly level,
and the sides irregular and jagged.
Owing to the datkness, nothing could
be done without a lantern: A torch
was procured, but, after entering the
cave- trahort distance, the- light went
out. A number of gentlemen from
this city organized an exploring

entered a chamber nearly high enough
to. stand up in;* and three or four

distance of twenty-five or th 4 rty feet.
At one end of the cave a wall of rock
stopped the further progress of the
party: Through the wall is a small
opening, not large enough to admit

Emil BauSch, of Lloyd street, near
Throop avenue, Williamsport, who
has been suffering for some time
