man of great Intellectual capacity that
removed her far above ihe every-day

Still, 1 fell that there was great esruae j

After this unfortunate occurrence, 1
made up my mind that Fanny would

Meanwhile our work advanced but

the corner of thla very room, and show
him two hundred-weight or more paper

those year* of incesaant labor. In vain
we tolled: Nature would not give up
her secret to us! We had indeed found
the lock, and fashioned key after key
to turn it- But. do what we would,
and file as we would, they would none
of them fit. or, even If they fitted, they
would not turn. And then we would
begin again again, after months of la
bor. to fall miserably.
During these dark years I worked

ETWKEN two or
three months after
wo had alarted on

1 could be of any use lo them, In this
care the lady, whose name was Mr*.
IHde-Tlic.mpeon, had an only son aged
twenty-eight, who was already In pos

he was an only child. In the event of

Joseph, It appeared from his moth

been a ''little wild." and she was there

The expense would of course be met
She knew I hat I kepi up a warm Inter

r lever, although unfortunately I hail
abandoned active practice, Then fol- 1
lowed a couple of sides of note-paper
full of the symptom* of the young
man's disorders, which did not seem
to me to be of a grave nature. I threw
thl* letter across the table to Fanny
without making any remark, and she
read It attentively through.
"Well." she said, "what are you
going to do?"
"I>o," 1 answered, peevishly; "see
the people further first! 1 have got
other things to attend to."
"I think you are wrong," she an
swered, In an indifferent voice; "this
young man Is your relation, and very

A week after this conversation, Mr
.Joseph Hide-Thompson arrived, care
fully swaddled in costly furs. He was
a miserable Utile specimen of humani
j ty- thin, freckled, weak-eyed, and with

One morning, when Joseph had l>een

at werk very late on the previous night,
and feeling tired and not tot) well, I
did not come down to breakfast till ten
o'clock. I'sually, wo breakfasted <*t
half-part eight. To my surprise, I
found that the tea not made, and
that Fanny had apparently not yet had
her hreakfaat. This was a most unu
sual occurrence, and while 1 was still
wondering what it could mean, she
came Into the room with her bonnet
and cloak on.
"Why, my dear Fanny!” I said,
"where on earth have you been?"
"To church." she answered, coolly,
with a dark little smile.
"What have you been doing there?"
I ask' I again.
"Getting married," was the reply.
1 gasped for breath, and the room
seemed to swim round me.
"Surely, you are Joking,” 1 said
"Oh! not sit nil. Here Is my wed

"1 am Mrs. Hlde-Thompson!"
"What!'' 1 almost shrieked. "Do yot

PI Irk to Ilia Farm.
1 FRIEND of our.
1 owned a good farm
a few year, ago,
1 about two mllea
from a Ihrlvlng
city, write. T. B.
• Terry. In Practical
Farmer. Me and
hi. .on. lived
on It and had
a line home and
were prosper
1 Ing .lowly. But they got It In
their head, that they eould live
easier and do better by moving to
town and going Into some bnalnes..
And they wout. renting the farm. They
borrowed money on it, and put that
with what they had and atnrted it gro
cery store. Me is a man of more than
average ability. They all worked ear
ly and lata for success. Last year,
however, was too much for them '1 bey
had to trust out too much, and the
laboring people had »o little money,
and there wa. so much competition
among the dealer, to get that, that, the
weakest had to go down. The sheriff
has Mid the farm, and everything el»*
I* gone. They have nothing. As they
are particular friends of ours, we feel
doubly sorry for them, Now, my good
friends, don’t you oft#n min* '»ai
farming I* a poor business, and wish
you were out of It and at something
else? And don't you know that the
usual result would be about as describ
ed abort? You cannot sell your farm
and put your money Into any business
today that la honorable and legitimate
and safe that will pay you as well.
Let us look this matter squarely In the
face, and take courage and go ahead
and make the best of our business.
There Is no chance to do any better, as
a rule, nor as well, all things consid
ered, with the capital invested. 1 was
talking the other day with a shrewd
old gentleman, who has considerable
property. He remarked: 'T keep
enough money In farm land to support
myself and family well if everything
else went to the dog*. 1 risk the rest
In buslnes*." There Is nothing safer
than good farm land. We have got
enough, too, to support us well, no mat
ter what comes. People must cat, and
farmers can always live, on the aver
age. A family out of debt, owning a
good farm, reasonably improved, ure
well fixed In this world's goods.
When to Water 1'lanta.
Should plsnu be watered during sun
shine? Why not, If they need It? The
watering of the plant should be gov
erned by Its condition and surround
ings. The whole thing, In a nutshell,
is, water a plant when It does require
1 It, says a writer In American Garden
ing. From my own experience 1 have
1 never had any bad results from water
ing flowers during sunshine, any more
: than In dull weather. During sunshine
1 and bright weather the evaporation
from most plant* Is more excessive
r than In dull weather; consequently
: plants call for more nourishment In
r the form of water, ami If the plants are
a growing fast, and the pots are full of
roots, 1 often find it necessary to water
them three or four times a day. Air,
-on and light are Important factors In
building up the plant, and one Is not
i much use without the other. Water
e containing soluble matter is absorbed
j by the roots and travels through the
plant as crude sap. passing upwards to
t the leaves; there It forms a comblna
jj tion with carbonic acid gas, derived
0 from the air, then by the action of sun
:K and light is refined and digested. As
the sun plays such an important part
( in the disintegration (as it were) of the
food of the plant, I cannot see how It
would have any Injurious effect to
1 water plants during sunshine; but
11 would look st It as a thing essential If
the plants needed it. I always aim to
* have watering done early In the tnorn
“ lug or about three or four o'clock in
* the afternoon, for the simple reason I
* that it facilitates the work, as well as
* economizes the water, hut as I said be
* for*. 1 would not scruple to water a
* batch of plants during sunshine If they
r needed It, and would consider I was
>. helping nature by doing so.

Our God is love; and all his saints ill®

The heart with love to God Inspired*
with love to man will glow.
Teach ns to love each other, l»rd, a®
we are loved by thee,
None who are truly born of God can live
In enmity.
Heirs of the same immortal bliss, our
hopes and fears the same.
With bom Is of love our hearts unite, with

Hints to the Teacher.
T. Christian Love. An ocean etcamer
pressing In the face of wind and wavo
Is an Inspiring sight. Where Is the pow
er than Impels It? We find It far below
the decks, in the throbbing engine Ho
Christian has his Impelling power within,.
In Christian love. Love is the ret of
Christianity, the Inspiration of ehuracter,
the motive that leads to the sacrifices, tho
trials, and the triumphs of the Gospel,
11. The Comparison of l»ve Verse*
1-3. Paul puls love In the halm »• with
other traits and endowments manifest in
tho Christian Church. Home of ih . • an
cd uit gifts have passed away, but they ^
have left their modern representatives. ■
"The gift of tongues” Is continued In #do- |
queues of speech; but the ablest sermon p*
without love In the preacher's heart l»J^
the clatter of sound. "Prophecy" Is In
sight Into spiritual truth: hut udiat 1*
that without love of souls? "FaJth that
moves mountains” has Its counterpart In'
seal ami activity In behalf of a cause
(for example, the determination of a Co
lumbus, seeking a new world; < f (\ W.
Field, In laying the Atlantic cable); hut
of what avail are obstacles overco
without love? There muy be liberal giv
ing, or even endurance of persecution, but (
unless they are for the sake of Christ,
und from love, they count but little for j
his cause.

love In the heart will inspire all these

1. It !s the enduring grace; other gift* I
may pass away, as some of these have, 1
passed from the Church, hut love abides.* ^
i. It is the consummate grace; It belong* i
to the highest type of Christian experi

Insight into truth Is incomplete; but, lov#
may be entire. 3. It is th»- divine grace, I
belonging to heaven as well as to earth. (
Other gifts may cease when we put off
