JOHN" KOONS, Prest.
Sept. 11, 72 3t.
Until the human heait knows the
divine heart, it must eigh and complain
like ait impatient child, who fliugs bis
toys from him because bis mother is not
at home. Wheu his mother comes back
to him he finds bis toys are good still
When we find God iu our hearts we find
Him in even thing. . .
Christian assurance does not become
a person who is cherishing some darling
sin. The indulgence of wickedness
grieves away the Uoly Ghost, from whom
alone assurance can eome. "Iwould not,"
said John Newton, "give a straw for that
assurance which ein will not damp."
Thr world is a comedy to those who
J think, and a tragedy to those who feel

A Big Esartsd Elacksmith.
The general feeling of unea-hipw exci
teT Vy the number of Enoch Ardens who
: have recently turned uu will not be lesa-
ened by nnevcut which has just happen
ed in JJifsouri, end is thus related by
the Ciuciuna:i Enqw'rer A Due armed
horseman, litely travelliug through Mis
Bouri, stopped at a blacksmith's i-hop in
in Cedar City, to have Lis horse shod.
The f milh noticed his empty sleeve, and
arked him if he had lost his arm in the
war He reulijd with a sish that he
had, aud aided, with much ruiotioa that
.? lt.l-l a a ..
on going back to Ins home at the close of
the war he found that hid wife' who
, . ....
tnottgbt tie waa dead, had raoove i a-.ay
and be had since been unable tr obtain n
trice of her. What ia your name, asked
llie blackt-mitli. J M W'uldiup, was
the reply. The smith suddenly released
the boof of tiiu horse over which ho had
bending, and without lu-jkinjr at the cx
eohiier, cried, followr uu into the hous-.,
and h'jrriidiy led the way.
Wa'drup it.fcli.tnic illy obi-ycd the un
expecletl bidding, and wa9 Rhi-red into!
the piesence of a coai-ly mulron, about
whose sewing chair three happy children
were playing. She was the blacksmith's
wife tbe mother of his little ones, and
rose to greet the stranger on his appear
ance whb lier husbaii.l ut ibe door. Xo
cooner, however, diil alio catch sight of
bis f:tce than she uttered a heart rcuding
j shriek and fainted In U'al lrup sbe re
j cognized her husband. In the firm be
j litf that ho bad been killed ia the
war she bad married the blacksmith of
Cedar City, and was already the mother
of three fine children, after tbe first agi
talion of the n.atrnbh-d group had sub
sided, Waldrup and lb" sm'i'i retired to
talk the matter over.
I)ivotdl as the sm::!i loved hid wife
he fully admitted Waldrup's stiprrhr
claims, and it waa in the end decided
that tbe herself snould decide between j
them. They nccnr.'ingly relumed to the
sitting room, where after a torrent of l-ars
and self reproaches, the wife c nue to t'-e
conclusion that t-he o iirht (o rcttnn to her
j first husband, s'nddeiily dropping her
Jhcad. however, on the blacksmith's shod
! der, she declared with bitter lamentations
1 .1. .. 1... i i i i i.:i i
nidi cue uoiiiu uui icxie, licr ciiii'ireu.
The smith "eyed her wbtlfully" for a mo
tnent, and then said in a bnsky voice,
"You sltall tiike theiii, sny dear." Lottie
bonis later, when the steamboat. St Luke
j stopped at the, liudiiig, Waldrup went on
j board with his "tidokly -veiled at.d still
weeping' wife," and tbe blacksmith foi
jlo.ved leading the childiea. 'J he boat's
bell rug lor the slarting. The dread
momeut of separation was at hand. The
captain, the crew, aad the passengers
were afTected to tears at the touching
scene. "With grent drops rolling down
his tawny checks," the smith kissed the
children oue after another, and bade the
mother an eternal good -by. He then
shook hands long and earnestly with
Wali up, and walked quietly to the shore
He never turned his fice toward the boat,
which soon passed out of sight, but
strode on with bead bowed down, to the
home where the voice of his wife and
children would welcome hitn no more
Let us hope that his grief was sincere.
A. English- correspondent writes as
follows : " On the 21st of August,' two
ladies were fishing in a deep part of the
river Tyne, called the Turnwheel, about
half a mile below the town of Alston,
Cuuibcrliiiid ; Mis. A took tbe right bank,
Mrs. B. tbe left. The right bank is pre
cipitous and overhanging and the lime
stone rock near the water is slippery.
Mrs. A .'in eiideavoiinir to dhss from one
...!, . ...).... rti ii.;,.k
was about twelve feet deep. Sim struck
out for the opposite bank, which was
better for landing than the- other, and
from which Mrs. B. was striving to reach
her with a fishing rod ; but, weighed
down by a heavy fcerge dress, she failed
to get wifbiu reach and turned iack.
Becoming exhausted, she found jt neces
sary to float until assistance arrived. Mrs.
B., seeing it was imposible to swim with
a heavy dress on, rau to a shallow part
of tbe river, waded across rapidly run
ning water, and with the assistance of an
old man who had been fishing, succeeded
in reaching her friend. Both ladies got
safely to the bank, not having suffered
much from the immersiou. Bat for their
courage and pieseuce of mi ad, the con
sequences must have beeu fatal to one or
both of thein Tbe knowledge that they
could swim doubtless gave them much
confidence. 'If',' adds the person who re
lates this incident, 'any woman is induced
by seeing this to learn the art ot swim
ming, she may some day be able to save
her own or a fellow-creature's life, and
the story will not have been made public
AN Irishman, describing the growth of
potatoes iu his native island, said, as a
clincher, "And sure a bushel of them will
fill a barrel "

Deep rivers move with silent majesty ;

The 1'kttv" Aisoyacb-i uf Life
Most temperaments can bear evils of
magnitude wi;b more patience than evils
that are so small aJ to be reckoned
among annoyanees. A strong man wilt
endure a fever without a murmur, but will
fret over a " corn." A heroic woman
finds it easy to lisk her life for the sake
of oue whom she loves, but will fly into
a paesion at a sour look. I'atieuts have
been known to sit still before the era of
ami'sthetics during an amputation, wl.o
could not resist the bite of a flea or the
sting of a mosquito. Great merchants
have often calmly endured an rnrip
breakdown of their fortunes, after exhib
iting the most violent anger over a trifling
loss. Iu cvny day life, important event
seem to biing with them a power to calm
the feelings and bold them iu subjection,
while little annoyances take us uaaware
and disturb us immoderately.
It is not easy to analyze the mind and
heart so as l give reason for' all the
shifting phenomena of existence. There
is something gieat and noble and endur
ing in man. and there is also something
small and mean and cowardly. What
ever appeals to our better nature is suie
to be, enterlaiued with becoming compo
sure awl dignity. Whatever sti ikes our
weak side arouses our selfishness and
causes a pitiful display of idiosyncracy
Man faces the heavens; but stands upm
the earth. Tbe petty annoyances of lifo
reveal us to ourselves and others, not iu
our high estate-as looking upward and
forward, but iu our low state. So far
as our human happiness- is concerned,
our well being does not depend so much
on our deportment in the midst of great
events as on oar patience in managing
the numberless tiifles, the microscopic
atoms of existence.
A singular instance of criminal mono
mania has come to light if Boston.
Jesse Pomeroy, a boy of 4, has confessed
to decoying boys of 5 to 10 years tonnt
of the way places, and aftr shipping
them naked, gagged them, tied them Op,
and beat and otherwise maltreated his
littte victims. In several cases this
youthful lunatic, or human tiger which
ever he may prove to be cut small holes
under his victims' eyes, disfiguring them
for life, and in others inflicted painful
cuts and stabs upon their bodies.
