Did you ever see our baby,
With her eyes so sparkling bright,
And her skin so lily white,
Lips and cheeks of rosy light?—
Tell you what,
She is just the sweetest baby;
In the lot.
Ah she is our little darling,
And to me
All her little ways are witty ; -
When she sings her little ditty,
Every word is just as pretty
As can be ;
Not anothei in the city
Sweet as she.
You don't think so— you ne'er saw her !
Wish you could
See her with her playthings chattering
Rear-her little tongue a chattering,
Little dancing feet come pattering,
Think you . would
Love her just as well as I do—
If you could 1
Every mother's baby darling,
Is as sweet and bright a blossom,
Is a treasure to her bosom,
Is as cheering and endearing
As my " Rose."

What is - One-horse Power?"
The use of the term "horse•powei
is very common ; yet few, except good
mechanics and engineers, attach a defin
ite meaning to it, but regard it as indi
cating, loosely, about the power which
one horse could exert. It is, however,
when used in the sense nuder considers-
tion, as definite as possible, and means
thp power required to lift 33.000 pounds
avoirdupois one foot high in one min-
A horse h'tzhed to the end of a rope
oy,e,r asulley one foot in diameter placed
over a deep well, traveling at the rate of
about 2f miles per hoer or 220 feet per
draw - UP 150 lbs. the same
distance he travels. The force thusex
erted is called, in mechanics, "horse
power," it being an approximation to
the average amount of continuous power
it is fair to demand of a strong horse.
If we multiply the weight raised (160
pounds) by the number of feet it was
moved per minute (220), the product
will be the number of pounds which the
same power would raise one foot high in
the same length ot time (33,000
The dynamometer' is an instrument
made for measuring power, particularly'
that exerted in drawing. Those used
for testing the draft of agricultural im
plements are simply very strong spring
balances, or spring steelyards, graduated
to indicate the power required to raise•
any weight, within reasonable limit, at
the rate of 2 miles per hour. When
we apply the dynamometer in ascertain
ing the draught of machines, if the index
indicates 150 pounds, it is shown that
the horse is required to draw just as
hard as he would do if raising 150
pounds out of .a well with a rope over - a
pulley one foot in diameter at the rate
oft 4. miles per hour, and so for other

really is. In testing the draft of -ma•

the rate of 2 miles per hour; or 220

On the Temperance power of les' or 'No.'
There is in human life that which an
swers to defiles in mountains. The pass
of Thermopbylae will be for ever -mem.
orable as the place where a few thousand
determined men kept at bay for days
two millions of. Persians; and those feW
thousand would have keptat•those two
millions forever had cot treachery re
vealed the secret to the Persians of a
path over the mountain. Those few
said "No " and they made good their
no. Difficulties almost always abridge
themselves to one narrow pass, which,
if you can hold, or go through, saves you.
In battles there is a key point, the pos
session of which secures the victory.
In moral contests it is the same way,
defeat or victory usually hangs upon
holding or forcing one point. That
point is almost always held or lost by a
"Yes" or a "No." " Yes " and "No "
are short words, but it takes little to
bar a defile. If the walls of duty rise up
on both sides of you, a simple '"yes" or
"no" will hold the passage way. Let
us suppose the case
-of a young'man nur
tured in the bosom of a holy social love.
At length he goes abroad to do for him
self in the world. he meets the good and
evil disposed. He is invited to take a
drink of liqu Jr. The counsel and teach
ings, and prayers of his early home rise
up on the right and left of his soul, Sa
tan can make uo flank Movement upon
him. He is assaulted squarely on the
front. The contest is reduced to a yes
or a no. The "yes" opens the passage
and the enemy, disguised as , a friend,
marches on him. The "No" is a bar
rier which cannot be battered down.
Behind his "No" he can hold the ene
my at bay forever. Many an individual
has fallen - because he would not say'No,
many an individual has stood, and stood
like a rock because be could and did say
Those with whom it is difficult to say
"No," find it also difficult to say "Yes,"
when "Yes" should be said as determ
inedly as at other times "No" should
be said. The parties here cross .ene.
another. Those who cannot say "No"
when "No" should be said, will not be
able to say "Yes" when "Yes" should
be said, and those who can say "No,"
when "No" should be said, will say
yes when yes should be said. Take the
feeble one who cannot say No when .the
glass is tendered, and he will not be
able, to say yes when the pledge is pre
sented, and on the other hand thoSe who
can say no to the glass, can say no to
other vices, and yes to the pledge and
other roads to virtue. The power to
will for right in one case helps to will
aright io all other cases. No to every .
vice means yes - to every virtue, and yes
to every rice means no to virtue.
There are somethings which should
not be reasoned upon. First truths are
beyond reason, they help reason, but
reason cannot help them. The Mathe
matics have their first truths, Religion
has its first truths, and Sanitary Science
has its first truths too, one of these is
that fiery fluids are only deleterious to
the system, and all solicitations to-par
take of them in any degree or under any
circumstances should be met with a de
Sometimes fhe saying of yes or no is
matter of simile pluck, sometimes there

there is in planting a blow, the truth is

By this time the telescope man bad
arranged his instrument and squinted

gazed up likewise in wonder. Just then
by an odd chance, a large meteor shot
down the sky.

was a growing• and common vice -among
American ladies." - The lady in, question,

and has enjoyed the unenviable reputa

husband's sideboard always glittered
with a formidable and inviting array, of

was always open. She was hospitable,
and bore the reputation of being a - loiing
