THE WATCH ON CH:RO?ffI43 EVE.'
rThe,.. . . .
by the chinitir, on Cluistmes eye, ,
Ars has/tw o Marianne ;
ratters sink and the windows eat*,
AM the night is Wild withstornm. A
Vie . 11=4 watch, for the spectre doubt
Has entered a childish breast,
And faith to-night must be lost In sight,
Aid the ',hit laid at rest. - -
elfin you sure he7l come?' says $ tiny voice,
44 0007 you an eutali quite!
Oh what could we do if it shouldn't be true,
And nobody came taillight
But the sweeter Uses of *childish trust,
Break to en the other's doubt,
"O, newer you tear, you'll see him hen
When the midnight bells ring out.” .
"Persons thy ttate told na h story. though,
lon Me we're such Utile boys.
I should feel so bad, It I t tliff e t tbey had,
That rd bats ins C
Do youlldsils hell - ear* be wind find rain
They say he's ptting old—
With that heavy pack on his poor humpback,
And the is so very cold t^ .
sal tell you the reindeer brings him has, •
And the load of toys Is light ;
His coat is warm, and he laughs at storm;
I knit* helicon's tonight.
There never cm be a dogbt, I my, •
0, never a cause to fear;.,
Our watch well keep while the other! sleep,
' And we're sure to Me PIM here:*
But the minutes lifsg, and thermal heads droop,
ifhentoft through the parlor door
Two ahadows,creep, while the bright eyes sleep,
For the bord night watch is o'er.
They cram the stockings with loads of toys,
Aid then with stealthy tread,: -•
They lift each form In its night-gown warm
And pat the watchers to bed.
The Wondknis . Book.
I wonder at thee, oh, wondrous
book ! ' They have tried to burn
thee; they have torn thee, leaf from
leaf; they have called thee a lie;
they have laughed at thy thunders,
and mocked at thy grief; they haiie
voted thee a failure and a dead let
ter, never again to be regarded. I
wonder at thee, oh,, wondrous book !
at thy tenacity and art of life; at
thy mute, unquestionable royalty
over all sciences, and civilizations,
and cultures, and blessings, and lib
' eities;and- hopes of the world; at
thy simple, quiet way of doing all
the while thou hast been abused ;
circulatitig among the,populations,
leavening the masses, darting away
through thickets into hidden hovels
threading narrow alleys, and climb
ing up to fifth floors ; lying clothed
in gold and purple, and silver and'
i ivory, in the cushioned pews, and
'reposing on the desks of the most
graceful architecture in the land ;
going about in people's pockets,
claiming thy place ifertainly in every
• respectable library, whatever next
most valuable book :may be wanting;
thyself so essential , to the self-re
spect of the' htimanity of the age
that the man is ashamed to own it
who does not own a Bible r i I wond
er at thee, oh, wondrous book; for
here is a man who is trying with all
of might to.praise thee, so glad and
joyous is his task, as though he first
had discovered thy virtue and would
bring thee forth from obscurity into
merited renown, when all that he
has said or can say; and far more
abundantly, has been said over and
over again a thousand times in
strains, of eloquence; when Bible
addresses, here and elsewhere, in
wide surveys of.thy benificent.oper
ations, have traversed the whole
curriculum of thine excellencies :
yet dost thou ever imperiously keep
us saying=food, kind, honorable
things of thee'. Oh, wondrous book
thou art,_ through all times and
changes, thine own best eulogy,
guide-book of Time, only chart up
on Eternity's dim sea.—Tunoa.

RANSOM COTTAGE RANGE,

SMYTH'S PATENT DUPLEX GRATE.
With or without Low Closet, Reservoir, or Ornamentul'Elevated Shelf.
I The Greatest Combination of Valuable Improvements Ever Presented
After the flattering experience of the pad year, having had a very large and extended sale.lwe
Snit that the Tux RANROU COTtaug is uninasally conceded to to the most desirable Range of Its
class in the market. Its general features are the same as In the celebratealtansom Range. which has
for years been considered the finest Range made. .It contains the Baton t 'Cimmerian' Broil big
Chamber, wht h ti universally acknowledged to be the only anciseseni and practical broiling attach
ment in use. It is also furnished with; Smyth's Patent Duple* Grate. This celebrated
Orate isextretnely simple In its Construction. it has now been in active use far more than five years,
and In view of the universally successful experience et its operation and durability during that xime,
as well. as the highly satisfactory results obtained by usin our own thorough Maier Its qualities. we have
no hesitation In pronouncing it the only complete and successful arrangement for removing clinkers
and refuse - from the Ore-box instantanoonsly. thoroughly and cleanly, while the degree of combustion
obtained has never, In our opinion, been equaled with any other style of crate.
Tux Resew' Cosriot Is a thoroughly jrst7eicret Range In all Its portions and appointments.;
While the prtee is extremely low. It is so coastrneted that It can be changed from a Low Closet to a
Single Oval Range, by merely .11fting the upper part of the Range from the Low Closet and placing It
upon - a set of ornamented legs. All sixes can also be furnished with the Ornamental Elevated Shelf:
The, large haled Ash Pan is taken out at, the end of the Range Instead of the front—a much more con
venient and cleanly arrangement—and the capteloas Warming Closet extends underneath Uth whole
Range. The Rut Water Reservoir Is heated entire', from the bottom, and is of a larger capacity than
,will be Award on any other Range of • tbls class. All the minor details in the construction of this
Range have received the closest attention. It has highly burnished ends, nicklaplated knobs of a new
and beautiful pattern, niekts-plated panels, nicile-plated Towel Racks, and the mounting and fittings
Is in tiro best style.-

Have used all kinds of Cough Mixtures.• but could
get no relief. Mornings, alter getting .up from my

breathe; also frequently vomiting severely. A
friend directed me to use Dr. German's Cough
and Consumptlen Cure. I did .so, wills but little
faith at the time, but after using I changed my
mind, - and I can consclentionsly say, after taking
only one brittle. I dirt not only obtain relief but am
not troubled u Rh that fullness in the morning.
My cough has stopped, • and I can obtain a good
night's sleep—something not enjoyed by me for.
