PRA.YER AND 'POTATOES.
(If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute
of daily food, and one of , yen say, Unto therft,
- depart in peace,.be ye warmed and:filled ; not-
Icithstandiag , ye give them not those things
which are needful tor the body,; what doth it
profit ?---James:l l i. : 15,
` An old lady sat in her old armchair,
With wrinkled visage and disheveled pair,'
And bungry-worn features ; .
For days and for, weeks her only fore;
As she sat there in per old arm! hair,
Had been potatoes. - - I:
lint now they were gore ; of had Or good,
Not one was left for the old lady's food,
Of those potatoes ; . ; • n. -
And 813 e -sighed and said, "What shall I de I
Where shall I send, and to wlibm shall 'I go
• For more potatoes
And she thought of the deacon over the way,
The deacon_ so ready.to worship and! pray;
Whose cellar was full of potatoes.
And she Said : "I will send for the deacon to
he'll not Mind much to give me some
Of such a store of potatoes,"
And the deacon came over as ' fast as be
Thinking tcrdo the old lady sornelgoed,
But never, for once, of pcktatoes ;, k
He asked her at once what was her chief
want, -- . - 1
And she, poor soul, expecting a ht, '
Immediately answered' ot toes." •
But the deecon's religion didn't hi that way ;
He was more accustomed to preach and to
- pray ,
Than to give of his hoarded potatoes.
So, not hearing, of courbe, What the old lady
said, . ' 1 ;
He rose to , pray with uncovered head, -
Bat she only thought a potatoes. i 1!
He prayed "for patience, and wisdom, and ,
4 ' grace ; • . , , , , i:
But when he prayed "Lord, give her peace,"
She , audibly , sighed "give Ootatoes ;" '
And at the end.pt each prayer which be said,'
He beard, or thought that beard, in its stead,
That same request for potatoes. .
The deacon was troubled ; knew not : what
to do ; ; -•' , -I• ,
'Twas very evibarrassing to have her act so
About "thoschcarnal potatoes."
• So, ending his prayer, lie tamed for home,
Ifut - aal the door chised,lie itiard a deep groan,
"0, give to the hungry 'potatoes I'
And that 'groan followed :him tall the - way
' honae, ' , ' .
~ "; ' • •
In the midst of the night it haunted his room.
"0, givelto; the hungry potatoes !"
He could bear it no longer ;. he arose and
' - dryssed : ~ ' ' ' '
From his well filled cellar, taking i i haste,
A. hag of his best potatiita, : •
Again he went to the widOw'slonetut
Her sleepless sleeplesi eyes-she laad-not yet shut ;
But there she sat, 'in ' her old arin chair,
. With the same' wan features, the' same ;sail

. And, entering in, • heyOnred the floor "
A bushel or more from his gqmily store, 1
Of choice potatoes. I'
The widoW's heart` leaped tii ' for joy,.; • . 1
Her face was haggard and , vitan-no more, , I;
'Now,"sai.l thedeaconshall We pray V'
"Yes," said the widow, "now, you may ;" --,
And he kneeled him down on the 'sandefl
floor, . ' • ,
Where be had poured, his goodly store, '
And such a prayer the deacon prayed 1
. As never:before his lips essayed ;
'No longer embarrassed, but free and full.
/ He poured out the voice of a;liberal soul,
` And the widow responded, aloud,-,"amen y.

The; ancient practice of marriage by'ctipture,
which has left some traces:even in our customs
and sports—notably - in that popular ,game of
kiss-in-lhe-nog, a mimic' representation of the
great game of marriage—finds many ifiustra
lions in tiongol Rubruquis, who visited
the hordes of Tarthry, s l nd was entertained in
the tent ot the immediate sneeessors'of Yeng
nis Khan, describes .a Morgol marriage tlius :
Therefore. when any man hath bargained
with another for a maid, the father of the dam
sellmakes him a feast ; in the meantime she
flies away to some of her kinsfolk to hide her
`self. Then the father says to the bridegroom,
daughter rifi yours ; take her' wheresoever
you can find her." Then he and \ his friends
seek her till they tind iier, and .having found
her,\ he takes her brforce and carries her. to his
Tins simple form of marriage contract, is still
preserved r.inong the Koraks and Teimetelms,
tribes of, northeastern Siberia. There: the
'sel is pursued'by her admirer, and hides herself
among the' polgos, 'Dr
.'ettbins ir t ade

dwellings. The womankind assist her in her
pretended evasion; and not till the bridegroom
has caught his. bride, and left the impmsion of
his.finger-nail upon her. tender bkin is the be
trothal completed. .
The analogous customs in ancient Roman
marriages here strike one with the, myth of the
rape, of the, §abines We need not go so far
away. The customs of a Welsh wedding, up
to a very recent date, included a mimic pursuit
of the bride by thebridegroOm; bath on horse
hack ; and .‘even in our English mitnner, *lien
the Uri legroom invariably - goes to seek hi&
bride on the wedding morn. But the value of
womankind ina pastoral life, where there is sti
much for her to do in= the way" of milking, but
&r, and cheese making, and so (In, brings
further element into - the relationship. A price
intuit be paid forthe futurt companion, and the
wedding portion enters largely 'into the clues
A more modern Mongol wedding is described
by Hoc, that most amusing of Jesuit fathers.—
The religious ceremonies are those of Budd
hism. The marriage is \ arranged by the pa -` 1
rents, wh6 settle the • dower that is to be paid
to the fatherof the bride by means of media
tors. When the contract has been concluded,
.the father of the bridegroom, accompanied by .
• relatives, carries the news to the
family of the bride. They prostrate themselves
before the domestic altar, and offer up a boiled

During the repast all the relations of the bride
receive a piece of money, which they deposit

milk, (we haye, or had, a similar custom of hid

father of theAiride drinks the milk and keeps
the money. \The lathas, oir priests, fix an au
d' icions day , when the bridegroom sends a
putation to escort the bride. There is a.
feigned opposition to the departure of the bride

MASTER 'AND: MAN 1N 'JAPAN.
No feature = of Japanese society Is more cut%
ous than the relationti between Master and'nan,
The master' admits his servant to hisintimate
soi;iety,but the servant neveE. assumes a liberty.
He takes his •plaee at dinner with the utmost
humility, and having done so; bears his share
of the, conversation, addressing ,freely, not only
hismaater, hut even guests of the highest rank.
The Master will - pass his own wine cup to his
man us it he were hn honored:guesl, and for
awhile they would appear', to any one hot ac
quainted with .a language . most fertile in subtle
distinctions, lo be upon perfectly equal terms.
Yet moment the featt is over the man re
tires *ith tbe same profound, obeisance and,-
marksto \ f -deference with which he entered, and
.mnethately relapses into the.servitor, not will
\ he, in'any ' way pre Mime upon the..familiarity
which, baying lasted .its hour, disappears until
occa.glon calls t forth again. Freedom of in
tercourse like this between 'employer and em
ployed is creditable to troth. , .. s

were as full of childish loiblekits tliblv, Of the
more youthful. They have all passed i through

the soft cheek And languis4ing glance of lovely
Woman—each could tell -his tale of school -boy
life, and rehtte the scenes of that era crowded
with more of love, of passion, and imore, of
spiritual truth than , any of the, talea he bad
read in after life. He could tell of tender lays
he had penned at midnight •by the light of a
"tallow, dip,". and contrast the bright days of
his youth with those inter in life, and even
praise the •maidens of his generatkinl as being
more fair thinl.modern Maids. -When young,
they bad whispers In a willing ear, kisses upon
a blushipg cheek, and think the kiss and

can now impart. They have a recollection of
passions slighted and betrayed, Of, youthful
friends early gone to the spirit' land
and prospects that only opened to deceive.—
The eyes that are bright • and the lips that talk
of love and- all the fair forms that we behold,
