We will sing a new song, and it shall be of
Of the indwelling spirit Divine,
Which lives in all things, bilow, and above,
And sill through the'cycles of time.
It lives in each atom, its life given strength,
Uniting it close to its neighbor;
In harmony dwelling, yet filtingilod's plan,
With infinite motion, and labor;
It is with all souls, who live near to their God;
they work with ills spirit Mine,
To' weed out the snore, and evils that grow,
In the beautiful gardens of time.
Theyjabor and work for the love of the race -
In union with angels above,
And with the command oar Saviour once
That blessed commandment of love!
THE LITTLE DE40411 0 8 norroik
- RULE .IJOUQUET.'
Twos on a bitter Vlinier's day,
I saw a strange, pathetiO bight;
The Biretta were gloomy, Bold and gray,
The air a ith failing snow was:white. 4
A little raggCd beggar child
Went running through the cold and storm;
He looked as it he never smileck:
As it he never had been warm.
Sudden, bia spied beneath his feet
A. faded button-hole bouquet:
Trampled and wet with rain and sleet,
Withered and worthless. there it lay.
He bounded, seized it with delight,
Stood still and shook it free from snow;
Into his coat IM pinned it tight= _
His eyes lit up with sudden glow.
Ho rauntered on, ail pleased and proud,
His.face transformed in every line;
And lingered that the hurrying crowd
Might chance to see that ho was fine.
The man who threw the flowers away
Never one-half such pleasure had;
The flowers bookwork was done that day
In cheering up that beggar lid.
Lb me, too often we forpit,
Happy in these good homes of ours, .
How many in this world aro yet
Glad even of the withered flowers !

THE WID(IIPIAI PLUMS.
One- day the widow McLoughlin, who
lived next the schoolhouse, complained
to Mr: O'Daly that yopng Redburn
had climed up in her plum tree and
stolen her plums. Mr. O'Daly called
Robin up and ordered him to hold out
his right hind.
'What for, Mr. O'Daly?' roared Rob
in , overcome by the frightful injustice
of this proceeding, for never in his
life had he been more obedient- and
well-behaved. 'Whit or, Mr. O'Daly?
I haven,t done anything. All the 'boys
know I haven't done anything.' '
'Ye haven't done anything, eh?' mid
Mr. &Daly; sarcisticolly. 'You're a
fine boy, arn't ye, and a modil to guns
mates? But it,s only just to them I
should tell them what I'm flogging ye
for. More betoken ye ate ivery one of
old Widdy McLoughlin's plums off her
tree, which was thriving. Off with
your locket.' --
'Oh, Mr. O'Daly, how could I, get
out?' cried poor Robin. 'The door
was locked.'‘ •
'That yell's:plain to nie,' said Mr.
O'Daly, wielding his lash unmereibilly.
