The old Church Bell. Every holy Sabbath morning, While the sunbeams are adorning Sloping hills and vallies fair ? Or when wintry winds are sig hing,. And the shadows think are lying On the uplands, bleak and bare— Still I hear that silver ringing pealing out up. on the air. From the ry's station, With a co nstant, sweet vibration, Floats the sound from door to door— Calling to the sad and weary, And through by-paths lone and dreary To the wretched and the poor, All earth's toil-worn children hear it, hear and bless It evermore, On some happy, festive morning, Long before the rosy dawning, Have I heard that merry sound, Ringing out across the meadows, Waking all the sleeping echoes, Throltgh the misty, quiet town— Starting from their peaceful slumbers all the dreaming world around. And when dust to dust is given, When earth's tenderfoot ties are riven, Still is heard that plaintive bell— Tolling mornfully and slowly, While alike the high and lowly Listen to the passing knell— List and learn the solemn meaning of the deep toned funeral bell. Peals of joy, and tones of sorrow, Sad to-day and gay to-morrow, Thus are life's great changes rung ; Strong emotions, upward, starting From the deepest fount of feeling, Uttered by that iron tongue, While the sweet reverberations die away the hills among.

A Thanksgiving lONamer. , Elder Sniffle*, having preached the Thanksgiving sermon, was invited to dine with Mr. McGuire. ELDER esurnas UNDER PEOULUR aIMB7'AN43IIB. "Elder Sniffles, let me give you another piece o' the turkey." "I'm obleeged to you, Mr. McGuire; you probably recollect that I 'remarked in my.discourse this morning. that individu als were too prone to indulge in an exoes sive indulgence in creature comforts on thanksgiving oocasions. In view of the lamentable fain that the sin of gormandi-. slog is carried to a sinful mess on this day, I. as a preacher of the Gospel, deem it my duty to be unusually abstemious on such occasions : nevertheless, considering the peculiar circumstances under which I am placed this day, I think I will waive objections, and take another small portion of the turkey." "That's right, elder; what part will you take now ?" "Well. I'm not particular ; a small quantity of the breast, with a part of a lug and some of the stuffing, will be quite sufficient." "Pass the cranberries to Elder Sidles, Jeff—Elder, help yourself ; wife, give the Elder some more o' the turnip sass and potaters." "Thank you, Mrs. Maguire, I am an advocate for vegetable diet—and have al ways maintained that it is more congenial to individuals of sedentary hrbits and in tellectual pursuits like myself, than ani mal food' “Jeff, my son, 'pass the bread.

"Sure enough—l almost forgot that I was to carve the pie. Aunt Sally, you'll take a piece of it won't you r' "Well, I don't cue if I dew take a lee tle mite ou't. I'm a great favorite o' the chicken pie—always thought 'twas a de lightful beverage—don't you, Elder Snit flea f" "A very just remark, Mrs. Bedott— very, indeed ; ()Molten pie is truly a very desirable article of food." "Allow me to help you to some of it, Elder." "Thank you, my young friend ; as I be fore remarked, I am entirely opposed to an immoderate indulgence of the appetite at all times, but particularly on thanks giving oecasions. However, I consider it 'my 'duty - at the • present time to depart, to some extent, from the usual simplicity of my diet. I will, therefore, comply with your request, and partake of the chicken pie." "Take some more of he cranberry sass, Elder; cranberries are wholesome." "A very just remark, Mrs. Maguire ; they are so ; nevertheless, I maintain that we should not indulge too freely, in even the most wholesome creature comforts ; however, since you desire it, I will take a small portion of the cranberries." Emu. BNIFFLES HAS AN ACID STOMACH. "Husband, dew pace that pickled tongue it hain't been touched ; take some on't, Elder Sniffles." "I'm obleeged to you, Mrs. Maguire— but 1 confess I am somewhat fearful of taking articles of that description upon my stomach, as they create a degree of acidity which is incompatible with digestion.— Is it not so, my young friend, You are undoubtedly prepared to decide, as you are, I believe. pursuing the study of the medical science." ir. "I think you are altogether mistaken. Elder Sniffles. We !should always take a due proportion of acid with our food, in order to preserve the equilibrium of the internal economy, and produce that degree of effervesenea which is necessary to a healthy secretion." "Exactly. Your view of the subject is one which never struck me before. it seems a very just one. 1 will partake of the pickled tongue in consideration of your remarks:* “Take a slioe on't, sister Bedott.

A most useful and salutary custom is that break tan One may work with the hand with out breakfast, but not with the head—the machine must be wound up. The blue must be taken out of the spirits; and the grey out of your eyes. A cup of coffee —real coffee—home browned, home ground, home made, that comes to you as dark as a hazel eye, but changes to a g?ld en bronze is you temper it with cream, from its birth. thick, tenderly yellow, per fectly sweet, neither lumpy or frothing on the Java; such a cup of coffee is a match for twenty blue-devils, and will ex orcise them all. Inioluntarily one draws in his breath by the nostrils. The frag moralism 'fills his senses with pleasure for no coffee can be good in the mouth that-does not first send a sweet offering of odor to the nostrils." FRIDAY.
