I Love the Ladies,
I love the ladies, every one—
The laughing ripe brunette—
Those dark-eyed daughters of the sun,
With tresses black as jet.
What raptures in their glances glow,
Rich tints their cheeks disclose,
And in the little dimples there,
Young smiling Loves repose.
I love the ladies, every one—
The blonde so soft and fair—
With looks so mild and languishing,
And bright and golden hair ;
How lovely are their sylph like forms,
Their alabaster hue,
And their blushes far more beautiful
Than rose buds bathed in dew.
I love the ladies, every one—
E'en those whose graceful forms
Are rugged as the oak that's borne
A hundred winters storms—
The young, the old, the stout, the thin,
The short as well as tall,
Widows and wives, matrons and maids,
0, yea, I love them all.
I love the ladies, every one—
None but a wretch would flout 'em=
This world would be a lonely place
If we were left without 'em;
But lighted by a woman's smile,
Away all gloom is driven,
And the most humble home appears
Almost a little heaven.
I loxe the ladies, every one—
They're angels all, Uod bless 'em !
And what can greater pleasure give,
Than to comfort and caress 'em
I call myself a temperance man,
So I'll drink their health in water—
Here's to the mothers, one and all,
And every mother's daughter.
Wouldn't Give In.

Daniel Bryan's Oath.
A TRUE STORY
Daniel Bryan had been a lawyer of
eminence brit had fallen, through intoxi
cation, to beggary and a dying condition.
Bryan had married in his better days
the sister of Moses Felton.
At length all hopes were given up.
Week after week would the fallen man
lie drunk on the floor, and not a day of
real sobriety marked his course. I
doubt if such another case was known.
He was too low for conviviality for those
whom he would have associated with
would not drink with him.
An alone in his office or chamber, he
still continued to drink, and even his
very lite seemed the offspring of hisjug.
In early spring Moses Felton had a
call to go to Ohio. Before he set out
he visited his sister. He offered to take
her with him, but she would not go.
"hut why stay here?" urged the bro
ther. " You are fading away, and dis
ease is upon you. Why should you live
with such a brute ?"
" Hush, Moses, speak not so," answer
ed the wife, keeping back her tears. "I
will cot leave him now, but he will soon
leave me, II e cannot live much longer."
At that moment Daniel entered the
apartment. He looked like a wanderer
from the tomb. He had his hat on his
jug in his hand. "Ab, Moses, how are
ye ?" he gasped, for he could not speak
The visitor looked at him a few mo
ments in silence. Then, as his features
assumed a cold, stern expression, he said
in a strongly emphasised tone : " Daniel
Bryan, I have been your best friend but
one. My sister is an angel though
matched with a demon. I have loved
you, Daniel , as I never loved man before;
you were generous, noble and kind; but
I hate you noir, for you are a perfect
devil incarnate. Look at that woman.
She is my sister—she now might live
with we in comfort, only that she will
not do it while you are alive ; when you
die she will come to me. Thus do I
pray that God will soon give her joys
to my keeping. Now, Daniel Ido sin-
cerely hope that the first intelligence
that reaches me from my native place
after I shall have reached my new home
may be—THAT—YOU—ARE—DEAD I"
"Stop, Moses; I can reform yet."
"You cannot. It is beyond .your
power. You have had inducements
enough to have reformed halfthe sinners
of creation, and you are lower than ever
before. Go and die, sir, as soon as you
can, for the moment that sees you thus
will not find me among the mourners."
Bryan's eyes flashed, and he drew him
self proudly up. "Go," he said, iu the
tone of the old sarcasm. "Go to Ohio,
and I'll send you pews. Go, sir, and
watch the post. 1 will yet make you
take back your words."
"Never, Daniel Bryao, never."
"You shall, 1 swear it."
With these words Daniel Bryan hurl=
ed the-jug into the fire-place, and while
yet a thousand fragments were flying
over the floor he strode from the house.
Mary shrank fainting on the floor.
Moses bore her to the had, and, then,
having called in a neighbor, he hurried
away, for the stage was waiting.
For a month Daniel hovered over the
brink of the grave, but he did not die.
"One gill of brandy will save you,"
said the doctor, who saw that the abrupt
removal of stimulants from the system,
that for long years had almost subsisted
on nothiug else, was nearly sure to prove
fatal. "You can surely take a gill and
not take any more."
"Aye," gasped the poor man, "take a
gill and break my oath. Moses Felton
shall never hear that brandy and rum.

A year passed away, and Moses Felt
on returned to Vermont. He entered
the court house at Burlington, and Dan
iel Bryan was on the HOOr pleitding for
a young man who had been indicted for
forgery. Felton started in surprise.
Never before had such torrents of elo
quence poured from his lips. The case
was given to the jury, and the youth was
acquitted. The successful counsel turn

"Moses," he said, "do you remember

" I do, Daniel"
" Will you take them back—unsay

"Yes, with all my heart."
" Then I , am in part repaid."
"And what must be the remainder of
payment ?" asked Moses. •
" I must die an honest, unperjured

far was made for life."
That evening Mary Bryan Was among
the happiest of the happy.
INTEGRITY AND GRACE—OnIy to bean
tronest man, in the highest and genuine
ly Christian sense, signifies more than
most of ns can conceive. We make
room for laxity here that we may let in
grace, and do not hold ourselves to that
real integrity that is wanted, to obtain
or be in that grace. Oh, how loosely,
irresponsibly, carnally do many profess
ing Christians live covetous, sensual,
without self government, eager to be on
high terms with the world, praying, as
it were, in the smoke of their own vani
ties and passions, making their sacrifi
ces in a way of compounding with their
obligations. Little do they conceive,
meantime, how honest a man must be to
pray; how heartily, simply, totally he
must mean what he prays for. Perhaps
he prays much, and prays-in public, and
has it for a continual wonder that he
gets on so -poorly, and that God, kir
some mysterious reason, does not answer
his prayers. Sometimes he will even be
a little heart broken by his failures, and
will moisten his face with tears of com
plaint. He has at times made great
struggles, it may be,lo freshen the fire
that was burning in him, and yet, for
some reason, he is all the while losing
ground. Bis faith becomes a band with.
out fingers, laying hold of nothing,
The more he pumps at the well of his
joys, the dryer he goes. It is as if there
were some dread fatality against him,
and he wonders where it Is. Commonly
it is here—that he wants rectitude. He
is trying to be piously exercised in his
feelings when he is slack in his integrity.
He has been so much afraid of being
self righteous, it may be, that he' is not
righteous at all. When he is loose in
the conscience, how can he be clear in
his feelings I—Bushnell.

Couldn't Bear Prosperity
There is a class of men of whom it ig
truthfully said, they cannot bear pros
peray. When fortune goes against
them, they conduct themselves with cor.
rectness ; but let the fickle dame smile
upon them, and they rush at once into
all sorts of folly and intemperance.
Prosperity has ruined people who, so
long as they had to struggle with the
world, were very excellent and exem
plary members of society. There was a
singular illustration of this in the Police
Court the other day. A gimd-for noth
ing looking Wretch was brought up,
charged with drunkennoss. It was a
clear case. The testimony showed that
he had been on a spree for a week. He
was asked what he had to say for himself.

The Shasta Courier, edited by a loyal
Irish American, is not afraid of being
outstripped by the negroes. He says:
"If God has given the power to the
negro to be4ome the equal of, or superior
to, the white man, just so sure that su
periorty will be recognized by all ; and
in our opinion he has not far to go to
become the equal of those who are so
tender-footed in refusing equal chances
to all the race. The negro has been
`handicapped' long enough. Give him
an equal chance; ' wait for age' and a
fair field. We can't afraid."
