"THESE 13 A SPOT."
There is a spot to me more dear
Than native vale or mountain.
A tpot for which f.rT-.'Ctiiins tear
Springs grateful from its fountain.
'Tis not where k indred souls abound,
Tbongh that is almost heaven.
But when I first my Savior found
I felt my sins forgiven.
Ilnrd was my toil to reach the shore,
Long tossed ut on the ocean,
Above me was the thunder's roar,
Beneath, the wave's commotion.
Dark'y the pall of nij;bt was thrown
Around iue. faint with terror
In that dark hour, how did my groan
Ascend for years of error.
Sighing and panting as for breath,
I knew not help was near me ;
' I cried. Oh. save me. Lord, from death,
Iniinortu! Jesus, hear me !
Then quick as thought 1- lelt him mine,
My savior stood before me !
I saw his brightness 'round me shine,
And shouted Glory ! Glory ! !
0 sacred hour! 0! hallowed spot? '
Where love divine first found ice,
Wherever falls my distant lot,
Aly heart shall linger 'round thee !
And when from earth I rise to soar
lTp to my home in heaven,
Down will I send my eyes once more
Where first I was forgiven.
JACK SPROUT'S CONVERSION.

few slight tokens of the castigation. Two
other boys had come home with Master
Freddy, and their testimony corroborated
t hat which the sufferer had given. Freddy,
yrith some ot his playmates, had b:en throw
ing stones at Mr. Gordon's dog. and one of
the mi-sites hurled by Freddy had hit the
m:n;al :;nd caused him to howl with pain.
Ot course, the stone thrown by such a tiny
hand, could not have inflicted ninth injury
iipii li e canine brute ; but Solomon Gor
o. ii eved his dog. and when he saw what
had been done he caught Master Freddy and
pave hs;u a thrashing; for, be it known,
JH'iomon Gordon was ju.t such another man
as Jack Sprout warm-hearted, generous,
nil ncghborly; but rough, uneducated,
stmiitr-willed, and impulsive.
Jack Sprout put on his hat and prepared
to aliy loi th. His lips were pale and tiht-
iv comiTespea, ana the huge muscles in hi
arms worked like bundles of ropes.

lie had sworn that he would thrash Solo
mon Gordon, and he would keen his word
His temper was at the boiling point, and he
was rairly aching to get his hands upon the
man who dared to strike his boy, for Fred
dy was his pet, and every blow that had
been laid upon the ehild'6 body had left a
mark of fire upon his owu heart. So he
put his. wife away from him and hurried
from the house slamming the door after him
Away went Jack Sprout with rapid,
heavy strides, and had Solomon Gordon
falleu in his way just then he would most
assuredly have been severely beaten ; for
though Solomon was a stout, bold man, yet
Jack was a very Hercules. .
Hut Jack was destined to get thoroughly
cooled off before he met the object of his
wrath. As he approached the bridge that
spanned the river just below the falls, he
heard loud cries of alarm, and upon hurry
ing forward he found that a boy had fallen
from the projecting timbers into the water.
He looked over the railing and saw a little
fellow coming to the surface of thefoaniing,
boiling flood a curly-headed boy, just about
the age of his own darling Freddy stretch
ing forth his tiny arms in agony of despair.
It was a terrible place, that seething, roar
ing pool, where the waters of the great river
came pouring down from over the high dam.
but Jack did not hesitate a moment, he for
got everything but the danger of the litt!
one, and only stopping to kick off his boots
and throw aside Ins coat, he leaped dow
into the angry flood. He cautrht the bov i
his arms, and then struck for the shore ; it
was a mighty conflict but the stromr man
persevered. Mote than once those who had
gathered upon the bridge and upon th
rocks had reason to tear that neither the
man nor child would come forth aliv : but

that he was able to walk, and he had su

the water, during all the tune of his strug

was able to speak, he looked to see tb bov

Jack looked up, and saw Solomon Gordon
coming solomon, pale and terror stricken.
and with all possible haste Jack seized his
coat and boots, and hurried awav. If
could not meet bolomon Gordon then.
'Mercy! what is it Jact ? '
-Mrs. Sprout was alarmed. Her husband
was dripping wet.his step was tottering, his
breath labored, and there was a lived mark
upon his forehead as thouch he had reeeiv
ed a heavy blow.
It is nothing, Abby.
"Has Solomon "
'i'shaw! D've think Sol. Gordon eonld
have done this? I have been in the river.
A little boy had fallen from the bridare riaht
into the flood beneath the falls, atid 1 jump
ed in and brought him out." :
"Yes, alive and unhurt."
"Oh thank God! Whose child was it,
"Don't stop to ak ouestions now. Abbv.
but make me a cup of hot, strong tea, while
I get on some dry clothes. My soul ! I
thniK l had a narrow dodge of it."
Jack put on his dry gamier ts, and when
he had rested awhile he drank his tea, and
in the course of an hour all traces of ex
haustion had passed away.
"I tell you, Abby, I have had a good
many tough jobs in my day, but I never had
one like that before. A weaker mau than I
could uot have brought that child out alive. "
"O, how grand it is, to uss one's strength
in such a cause. But whose child wa3 it?
Do you not know ?" - . -r
Before Jack could answer, the outer door
was uncerimoniouslv opened, and Solomon
Gordon entered the apartment. Abby
shrank back in alarm when she saw how
pale and excited the man looked, and how
he trembled, for she did not notice the moist
brimming light that shone in his swollen
Jack ! spoke the new comer, in a gasp
ing manner, at the same time holding out
both his hands. He choked and stammer
ed, but presently gained strength to add,
(J, my uod, what can I say ( Jack! Jack!
Here the stout man broke fairly down, and
burst into tears.
Jack, almost as much affected as was his
visitor, arose and took the extended hand.
-Sever mind, col, it s all right.
''No, no." cried Gordon, "it isn't right.
It never can be rieht. O, what can I do?
Jack, it' I could only go back to where I was
this morning ! My God ! 1 beat your child
for a trifling thing, and you have saved
mine from a terrible death, saved him al
most at the expense of your own life. Kill
me it you will : beat me Jack. Do anv
thing you like, only forgive me for what I
did to your little Freddy forgive nie.so that
this saving act of yours shan't alwavs be as
a heap ot coals upon my head 1"
And then with a sudden imnulse under
the influence of an emotion such as he had
never before experienced Jack Sprout said:
bolomon, 1 tell you it s all right, lou
liave no more reason to thank Uod that I
saved your child than I have. When I
went from my house I was full of wrath ;
madness and curses were upon my heart.
I would have had such revenge as the wild
beast seeks. Is it not better that I found
a a t .1 l ift t

not better that my strength was used in sav-

bottom of my heart. And now, I say, it's

And so was cemented a friendship, holy

the evening, and they had been sitting for
some time without speaking "I believe I

: And then the wife, with her arm around
her husband s neck, pentlv. kindlv. said :
"Dear Jack, wouldn't we both be happier
if we would try to live bv the blessed, rules
laid down by the Savior? Oh, I know that
they were given by One who sought our
highest good, and 1 think we should find
much joy in trying to square our lives by
the. golden rule."
And Jack, with a kiss, made answer:
"31 y darling, we will try."

puny little fellow named Peter Baniran, who
is sixteen years old, yet who only weighs 443

adjoining room, on opening the door, the

The Dwarfs "Wedding
It is well known that - ice is capable of
such great solidity as to retain in cold coun
tries any desired si ape for a longtime; and
uouses have been constructed of it which
have resisted the elements, not only through
iue winter, but tar into the succeeding sum
mer, and in some instances, even during
several years. In illustration of this fact,
the Courier des Etats Unis tells the follow
.Peter the Great of Russia had in his ser
vice a buffoon, named N.ickoleff, a , dwarf in
size, and particularly ugly; in appearance,
but possessed of a mind full of intelligence
and overflowed with wit and sarcasm, in the
exercise of which even the sacred majesty
of the Czar was not always respected- .He

"You must be very rich, then, or the
would not love you," said the Czar.
"Allowiuc that to be. I should not be the
the first one who has beeu loved for his
wealth!", replied the buffoon with a cynical
smile. "I know of one far more rich and
niwre powerful than I am, who has thought 1
himself loved for himself alone, instead of
the piles of yellow gold, and was so plainly
deceived that lie alone was unsuspicious of
the true object. "
The Emperor turred pale with amrer. and
bit his lip until the blood flowed, for the
buffoon alluded to a love adventure of the
monarch well known at court, but of which
none had dared to speak above a whisper. ,
V ery well, said he, controlling his rage

in comparison with which the blows of your
wife which have often made your shoulders
ache, are mere love caresses. , '
Fifteen days after, the first day of Janu
ary, 1720. the buffoon was awakened at day
break by the sounds of music at the door of
the chamber which served him as a prison;
A number of the servants of the Czar en
tered, clothed him in a magnificent suif'of
garments, then placed him on a sledge, to
which were attached tour ot the most beau
tiful horses in the imperial stables, and sur
rounded by a cortege composed of the great
est lords and ladies of the imperial court,
conducted him to the Cathedral Notre Dame
de Kazan, where the nuptial ceremony was
celebrated with a splendor and extravagance
which not only reassured, but delighted the
The nuptial benediction pronounced, the
happy couple were placed upon the sledges,
and conducted to an isolated place, a short
distance from the city, on the banks of the
Neva, where had been built a palace the like
of which never existed, except in fairy tales.
The palace, w hich seemed to be construct
ed of chrystal, and which reflected in thou-
ands ot luminous rays the blazing torches
of the cortege, was built of mossioue blocks
of ice, cut out as if from stone and fastened
with water in place of cement. The dwarf
and his wife were introduced into an im
mense hall, the furniture of which, tables.
chairs, chandeliers, everything was made of
c, and were served, in the presence of the
Emperor and his attendants, with a feast of
regal sumptuousuess. Ihe choicest and
most deiicate wines were serVed in abun
dance, Xnd the goblets . of Nickoleff and
Catherine also carved from blocks of ice f
were kept constantly filled, until, at
from l'eter, the spouses, stupefied
wine, were carried to the nuptial chamber
and placed . upon a bed of solid ice, richly
carved and gilded, and there left, without
fire or sufficient clothing, in the frigid tem
perature of a Russian winter. The doori
of the chamber and palace were then sealed
by pouring . water over them, which imme
diately congealed, rendering them equally
solid with the walls themselves. As the
cortege withdrew the cruel Emperor re
''Behold! a nuptial night such as was
never witnessed before."
Eight months after the fatal night, says
the historian Leveque that is, at the close
of the month of August this palace and
tomb of ice still existed, and in an almost
perfect state. Certain portions of the ex
terior only had yielded to the influence of
the warm" winds and sun, and, melting, had
formed about a species of opaque stalacti
tes. The monument itself gradually lost
its transparency, and became a dirty, tar
nished mass, through which it was no longer
possible, thanks to God, to distinguish the
bodies of the frozen lovers, of whom the
very features had been so long visible. An
other winter passed, consolidating the fear
ful tomb anew, so that two years later, un
der the combination of frost, hail, snow,
dust, sun and rain, this fairy palace was
completely transformed into a hillock, and
hideous to behold. .
When, at last, Peter the Great gave or
ders to demolish the frightful witness to his
barbarity, the pickax and bar were found
insufficient for the purpose, and recourse to
blasting was necessary to relieve the shores
of . the beaut if air Neva of the villaiuoua ob
ject which recalled so disgraceful a history.
