To Fee the golden pears upr se
Beneath the oriflame of day.

I hear the day sounds swell and grow,
And see across thel twilight glance,
Troop after troop in swift advance,
The shining ones with plumes of snow I
ITlnmv the errandiof their feet,
I know what mighty work is theirs;

The threshing - floors of God to beat,
And speed theM With unworthy prayers.
Twill not dreams in vain despair
The steps of progress wait for me :
The puny leverageio(a hair

I - A drop of dew the tided sea.
The loss ) if loss thine, be, is thine,
I And yet not miiie if understood ;
For one shall\arasp and one resign,
lOhe drink life's use, and one its wine,
And God shall make the balanceigood.

' Oh, prayer and action ! ye aro one;

Miss Jellabv rose at six one beautiful
August morning, and throwing open her
chamber window, sniffed once or twice at
a fragrance Coming up from the roses in
the garden below. Then she hunted a
moment for her spectacles upon the bu-'
reau, and putting them on, looked eagerly
at; Randall 'Cottage over the way. A
very modest pretty little house it was,

each window, and woodbines and jessa

Breakfast being over, Miss Jellaby
sallied forth to the parsonage_
The clergyman was a quiet., peace lov

spinster always overpowered him with her

She stated nearly half an hour with him ;

her mistress of their arrival. Mr. Ful

uneasy in mind, and wishing with all his
heart that be was home a.aiti. Miss
Jellaby strode up and down the room like
a she dragon, eyeing everything about
her, and making observations in an under
tone ; which however he could not help
"Such extravagance! Look at that
carpet now—all mates and lillies, .and
straggling green vines. Why can't they
be contented with a dragger.; as I am?"
She took'another turn.
"And a guitar! Spaniards, I don't
doubt; or Italians; and the rest follows
as a matter ;of course. Mr. Fullerton, I
believe these people are heathens I"
• "Hardly, I. think, or they would not
have come to church last Sunday."
"Oh, ycn don't know that; 'perhaps'
they have had some private end to gain
by it," said Miss Jellaby.
The spinster's unreasonable suspicions
tickled Mr. Fullerton, beyond measure.
She saw him laughing, and grew very

give her fresh energy.
"Before my very eyes, sir !"
"What do you wean ?"
"I suppose you will kiss her next."

'A Turkish Love Affair.

in a very singular manner, any cruelty in

the Mohammedan lawyers called ••hom
