SPEAK NO Hit
Nsy, apeak no ill ; a kindly word
Can never leave sting behind ;
And ob, to breath each tale we've heard
Is far beneath a noble wind ;
For oft a better eed I sown
By chnalng thus kinder plan ;
For if bnl little good we've known,
Let' (peak of all tbe good we can.
Olve me the bearl that fain would hide,
Would fain another' fault efface.
How can it pleaee our human pride
To prove humanity but baao ?
No, let it reioh a higher mode,
A nobler eatiruat of mnn ;
Oe earncat In the aearch of good.
And apeak of all the beat w can.
Then apeak no ill, but lenient be
To other's feeling aa vour own t
If you're tbe first a fault loses,
lie not Aral lo make It known.
For life ie but a pausing flood
No lip can tell how brief the stay ;
Do earnest in the search for good i
And speak of all the beat we may.

It struck Unci Tom, whllo they

gtnvo turn to tho cornori of bia fa
vorito Hetty's rod mouth, and a sad
loook in her syoi, which wero not

And after supper he noticed that,
whilo they all chatted bo merrily,

He said nothing that oight, but

and saw that sho sat upright as a

the other half too. . .
He saw fletty jerk hr hand away
from Squire Parker, wbort the risi-

between bis irate sister and the youn

the same littlo hand and raise it to bis

.And after they were gone, be saw
that Hetty kept the) other little band
olaspod over the one which bad re
oeived tbe carets,' as t if sho would
keep tbe sweet impress, there as long
as aha eonld, ? , . . '.
Uncle Tom ba4 half aa idea (bat

It is one thing to earn money, and
another to make tbe best uso of it alter

wages make small difference to the
