Make Home Pleasant.
More than building showy mansion—
More than dress and line array—
More than domes or lofty steeples—
More than station, power and sway;
Make your home both neat and tasteful,
Bright and pleasant, always fair,
Whore each heart shall rest contented,
Grateful for each beauty there.
More than lofty, swelling titles—
More than fashion's luring glare—
More than mammon's gilded honors—
More than thought can well compare;
See that home is made attractive,
By surroundings pure' and bright,
Trees arranged with taste and order,
Flowers with all their sweet delight.
Beek to make your Home most lovely ;
Let it.be sk smiling spot,
Where, in sweet contentment resting,
Care and sorrow are forget ;
When.the flowers and trees are waving
•Birds will sing their sweetest - songs,
Where the purest thoughts-will-linger,
Confidence and love belongs.
Make your Home; as little Eden
.Imitate her smiling bowers;
Let a neat and eimple cottage,
• Staniraniderbriglitirees rind'fiowers.
There,.ishat trigranceminCerhat brightness,
Will each4ilooming rose display,
Here a simple vine-clad arbor
Brightens through each Summer day.
There 44°h-heart will.rest.con tented,
Seldom wiehing far to roam,

Pure and lasting its ,control—
`Home with pure and bright ,surronwlings

-One great source of Spurgeon's power in the

the old English Divines. -.These are .his -constant
companions ts from.them he draws, largely hia..ap&
comparisons, his quaint-imagery,fand-his forcible

collection of sentences, illustrations, and sayings,
of deep , and , precious import, from the works of
:that renowned Puritan,- Thomas Broofts, whose
ministrations were so well attended and so greatly

the seventeenth century. He,was one. of. the
King's mighty ones in mind, and soul, and grace.

DIED-July Ist, 1859, at Waukesha,
Win., in the eighth year of her age, Miss
ORNIA HARM A., daughter of the Rev. W.
W. Harsha, of Dixon, 111. Little Orpha was
a rare lamb in the flock of Christ. She was
not yet eight years old; but; having been for
almost a year the subject of •severe affliction,
she was a truly ripe Christian. She gave,
for some time before she died, the most sat
isfactory evidence of an intelligent and com
fortable faith in the Redeemer. And, from
her peouliar circumstances, hers was a most
growing faith; she matured rapidly. Her
.inorease < in- spiritual mindedness- could .be
easily perceived from one '=weekly visit to
another. I never saw a more beautiful ex
ample iihild Idety. Though "airffering
Irtrueli; she.wer argentle and uncomplaining
as a lamb. With the calm dignitrof an
aged "Christian, ,she, - expressed , : herself:—as
having .no fear of death; "I'm not afraid
to diey'utheisiiidt"ied said, 0 soaweetly.
A few hours before her death, she sang
`without a-tear or any sign of fear, and in
a calm, clear, sweet voice, the'hymn
" I have a Father in the Heavenly
Land ;" and so remarkable and touching was
+the scene, that all around her, friends ' ac
quaintamieerand.strangerrt, were bath-d in
tears. Her departure was like a child's
falling over into sleep on its mother's bosom.

..arms and „folded her to, his bosom. Thus
these -'devoted and most- excellent •parents
heVellreir fourth treasure in heaven. Very,
tii3h are - they.
Now, mydear little friends, how many of
you can say with this lovely little girl,
"Jesus loves me," and ":I'm ,not afraid to
die 1" Mast it not•lie a mostkbleseed thing
for a child to love . Jesus' and be loved of
him ? And if you should be called to die''
in your youth, would it not be most
desirable to be able to die so .happily and
peacefully-as she? And.how -can children
be happy and lovely now and • at death ?
By loving and obeying tChriat. He will
love them that love him, and will , make
them happy. Many of you are older than
Orphay and yet you ,, have never :thought of
believing and loving'Christ ? And' what is
the reason ? Yon cannot plead you are too
young ; for. tSainnelimas devotedly -pious
when but a child; Josiah, the good king,
feared the Lord and loved- the truth, •when
'only seven years old; Timothy knew the'
Scriptures from his very youth; and here is
Orpha, who is not yet eight years old, - who
loves Christ, calls him her Saviour, and dies
expecting to go and -live with him forever.
And there are many , other little children,
whose lives have been , written, of four, and
five, and six years of -age, -who have been
intelligent and happy .t Christians.. It. will
do you &good to read the lives of Nathan
Dickerman and Catharine Haldane, where
you will ace how even a little boy and girl
of only five years, could trust in the Saviour
and‘be happy. No,-children, you are not
too young to love and, obey Christ, arkyou
are not too young to sin and disobey him.
Like little Catharine Haldane, -=then, you
ought to pray every day for anew heart un
til Christ gives you-one. Beseech 'him to
help you to love him and he will, for he
loves the love of ehlidren. 0 I they are
happy children, who can say with Orpha
Handle "Jesus' loves`me ;" and with 'Oath

and would gather a..little basketful of them.
The boy looked wistfully at the money, for
his parents were poor; but when he gazed
at the yawning chasm, be shuddered,
shrank back and declined. But filial love
was strong within him, And. after another
glance at.the.gifts and at the terrible fissure,
his heart grew strong, his eyes flashed, and

And then, with unsbrinking nerves, cheek
unbranehed, and heart firmly strong, he
suffered his father to put the rope about
him, lower him into the wild abyss, and to
suspend him there (While he filleds-his little
basket with the 7 irebveted- flowers. It was
a daring'deid, but his faith la the strength

Influence of Sisters.
We hearmuch of maternal influence, .and
its importance cannot easily bsrexaggerated,
but let us not become so much absorbed
with the power-and-beauty of this, the
strongest of all domestic forces, as to over
look or 'forget the gentler yet` still 'potent
influence of sister's presencennd example

To cPrevent "Rats, 'Nice, Iniebte
Working in. the Granery.
° These live pests'are a greitt, eye sere to
all farmers. and grain dealers, and a little
care and trouble will keep them away, and
at the same time the remedy will be a •
>benefit: to' most kinds of coarse' grain. For
the benefit of those who' would like to 'keep
grain all Summer, or a year, I will, •in a
brief manner, give the course to, pursue,
that the loss by these little thieves may
be comparatively small.. ,
After the grain is in the bin and mate'
level and smooth; put on the top about four
quarts of fresh= slaked lime; let this be
spread evenly over the grain. This will'
keep out rats and mice in a bin that con
tains one hundred bushels. This lime
must be slaked •so it looks like flour fresh
from the miller's bolt. If the lime is left
upon the surface of the grain, the rats
and mice will not skip and play there a
great deal before they will have to sneeze
some; and further than this, there is always
enough grease or oily substance remaining.
upon theleet of rats and mice to make the
lime adhere to'them. After they have.been
once into it they will not return again the
second-time. You-roay likewise throw this
lime'about-their haunts with much 'benefit';
but if-insects are to-be kept out, you must
mix the' lime with the grain as you pnt it in
the bin, and'shovel it througlyand ,, 'through
until it is mixed .:thoroughly; then place
'on the top four quarts of the 'slaked lime.
Four quarts of unslaked lime Is sufficient
for one hundred — bushels of grain ; and it
will.do no hurt in many kinds of grain if
it never taken out, -for it 'is an alkali
which is good for botts in horses. It will
neutralize the acid in hog swill, and pre
vent their vomiting; -and, in faot, this
small quantity of lime would be a benefit to
most kinds.of Stock if it should be ground
with the grain.
If you,-apply the lime to wheat, back
wheat, and corn, or'•the like, and do not
want it in the grain, get out your fanning
mill and run it through. •
To slake lime perfectly, put it into a
tight, stout vessel, and pour on boiling
water, al)outlalf 'as much water as lime in
bulk; cover up the lime as 80012'919 the
water is in, and leave it until cool. Good,
unslaked lime will more than double its
dimensions when well slaked.--Oor. Genesee
Familiarity with the Bible.
He who is so familiar with` theßible that
ettah chapter, open where he will, teems with
household words, may draw thence the theme
of many a pleasant and pathetic song. For
is not all human 'nature and all 'human life
shadowed forth in 'those pages? But the
soul to sing well from the Bible must be
imbued with rdligiore as the 'flower 'is' alter
nately imbued with'dew and Sunshine. The
study of the Book must have begun la the
deed to be Divine, and be carried on through
all those•silent intervals in which the soul
of manhood ia restored, during the din of
life, to the purity and peace of its early be
ing. He who begins the study of the Bible
late in life must indeed devote himself to it
night and day, with a bumble and contrite
beart,'as well as an awakened and soaring
spirit, ere he can hope to understand what
he feels—thoughts and feelings breathing
in upon him, like spiritual sounds and
scents, as if from a region banging in its
mystery between heaven and earth.— Wil
The Term "Old Dominion."

Shortly-afterrwhenTeroarwell-threatened . to

D R. R. A. WILSON'S PILLS.
Having retired from the practise of medicine, I may be
permitted to say that it has fallen to the lot of bat few
persons to have enjoyed so liberal or large a share of
obstetrical practice as my own bee been for the last thirty
or forty years.
The experience of thatlong period of active life, and the
fact of.my having.been twice, since 1630, associated with
Dr. it. A. Wilson, in the practice of medicine, (in both a
period of five years,) enables me to judge fully of the merits
of his pills.
to convenient, se . eilicient, and yet so safe, did I esteem
thessills that for the last five years in practice, for the
cure of chronic diseases of whatever name. and those of
females In particular, I have need more -of them than all
other medicines. Like every other medirin e; these must
fail in some instances, bat In my bands there has been less
disappointment and more satisfaction in the administration
of this one remedy than of all others—its good effects
sometimes quite astonishing me.
If my patient required a safe aperient medicine, either
before or after parturition, the Wilson's - Mils were just the
thing I wanted.
If a dyspeptic acid condition of the stomach, combined
With costiveness, or inactivity of the liver,. constituted the
disease of my patient, the pills were just the thing I
If I treated a case requiring an emmenagogne, the Wil
son's Pills were just the thing I wanted.
If palpitation, headache, flushed countenance, or other
difficulties indicating a disturbance of the circulatory and
secretory systems, annoyed my patient at the turn of life,
the Wilson's Pills were just the thing I wanted.
Thue, without respect to the name a diseasemighthappen
to wear at the time I hive had it under treatment, particu
lar indications or symptoms arising were always most
promptly and Most happily met by the Wilson's Pills.
That so great a number of disews, and sometimes
apparently opposite ones, in which I haie used those pills,
should be cured more readny , by them than,by any other
rpmedy, may at first seem strange and contradictory, but
why it is so, is as clear to 'my mind as that 'a greet many
persons should hecome thirsty from as many different
causes, and yet all require that amnion and greatest of all
blessings. water, t' quench their thirst.
In conclusion, it is due the reputation of medicine and
the public to say, decidedly and unconditionally, that the
Wilson's Pills are the only combination I have ever met
with lump long course of practice that really possess any
thing curative or specific for sick headache,
