When the Scottish "Auld wife" wee
asked to enter an inn, and take a glass
of "the famous Scotch sum' still whis
key," she replied : "Na, ne : there was
nee room for my Savior in the lon, in
the days of `his • •flesh, and I'll no gang,
for Tin Oilskin' there'll iso-muckle room
for him there yet."
This incident introduces a beautiful
and touching poem._ with the . above
title, in a recent issue of an excellent
"religious and litetary monthly." : It is
very suggestive. It is not.at all proba

of them now are. lint the lesson en

Would that all professedly Christian
people were as thoughtful and conscien

AN Awvux DISEASE.-A Western er-
change notices the prevalence of a new
disease called the pipsynipsy, and thinks
it peculiar to that section. We do not
know the exact disease has made its
appearance here, but the remedy is in
general use. The disease is described
as follows : A sudden depression of the
collipais dinix, a caving ko of the Bpi
' nality of the backbonibue, and a feeling
of slimness in the immediate vicinity of
the diaplrragm may be regarded as
symptoms that the complaint is coming
on. The following remedy will afford.

the languid fair one, with a smile, to the

feeling her pulse.
