One Idea Hen
, We have too many men in all occu

Many a machinist will insist on believ
ing that to do a day's work well is the
requisite of all mechanical knowledge.
His steadiness and patient skill are
admirable, but he will turn up a dozen
years hence, gray and worn, toiling at
the vice or drooping at the lathe. He
will be supporting a large family on
one dollar and three-quarters or two
dollars a day but that two dollars is
the limit of all his possible daily Income.
Mark us, that is the man who once
said, "0, bother ! what do I want of
a knowledge of general principles,
mechanical calculations, drawing, busi
ness information, and all that ? Why
should I fill my head with all this stuff
about the iron manufacture, estimation
of machinery, mechanical engineer
ing?" . Of course, you should not dis
turb the priceless comfort of your easy
soul. Of course, my 'dear sir, you
should .stick close with a fire engine
company, and devour cock-and-bull
stories with the rapacity of a book
seller's apprentice, or spend your time
in a still more free and easy manner;
but at all events you should not"bother
your head where you are so wilfully
opposed to any good which might come
from-it. Meanwhile, you will find
some of your companions, vice hands
or lathe hands like -yourself, brake
men or firemen even, pushing their
way upward, gaining every year in
skill and character, and ultimately

The Suntoeam's GraTe.
Nothing in this vast creation is ever
lost. Individuals may be losers through
carelessness, but to the world at large
no created substance can be lost. One
combination of things is often changed
into another, but no ingredient is ever
utterlv destroyed, for at this moment
the created universe does not contain
one particle of matter more, nor one
particle less, than belonged to it that
day it came fresh from the creating

good. Never did a sunbeam shine in
vain, and therefore no sunbeam that
ever streaked this world with light
could finally be lost. Yet the sunbeam
lovely as it is, had its grave, and there
sometimes for unnumbered ages it has
slept in undisturbed repose. What is
coal but latent sunbeams, which need
only to be ignited to start out again
into active life ? The sun, when many
thousand y ears younger than he is now
cast forth his radiant beams oh the
of ferns and other acrogens started a
his -bidding into vigorous life y they
lived, rdiedj andunderweht 'changes
which made them coal yes, coal I and
the bid sun, hte "did.it all. ,' These sun
beams have long been buried in the
ferm of coal ; and though by ignition
their 'resurrection-life is but " aJdim
shadow. of their early brightness, they
are yet sunbeams. We have nothing
but sunlight in summer 1 or m winter.

The fire on
our hearths, the gas in our tubes, the
oil in our lambs, and the candles on
our tables, are all the products of the
sunbeam. , - We kindle them, and in the
very act raise the sunbeam from its
grave, and send it forth to run per
chance a long cycle of changes ere

; Antiquities of Kissin
In ancient Rome, kissing was an act
of religion. The nearest friend of a
dying person performed the rite of
receiving his soul by a kiss, supposing
that it escaped through the lips at the
moment of expiration, ' as many pas
sages in the'classical poets express.-
The sacredness of the kiss was inviol
able for. along time' before it was de
graded into a current form of saluta
tion ; and, if we may believe Pliny, its
introduction as such was owing to the
facility it gave" to" detect the degene
rate Roman ladies, who (in violation
of the old hereditary female delicacy
of the Republic) indulged in secret
potations of wine. It gradually became
the common form of salutation among
men, as it still continues to be in most
Continental nations of Europe to this
day. Among the early Christians the
kiss resumed its importance. The
jdss of peace was a sacred ceremony,
observed upon the most solemn occa
sions : it was called siqnacidum ora
tionis the seal of prayer, and was a
symbol of the mutual forgiveness and
reconciliation required by the Church
of all its members. In the Roman
civil law the right of kissing was duly
defined and protected. The kiss had
all the virtue of a bond, granted as a
seal to the ceremony of Betrothal, and
if the contract was unfulfilled through
default of the husband, he surrendered
a moity ,of, the presents offered on
that occasion, in expiation of the vio
lence done to the modesty of the lady
by a kiss. : Thus Shakespear makes
Julia, in the Two Gentlemen of Ver
ona,' after exchanging a ring with her
lover, "seaf the bargain with a holy
kiss ;" and traces of the same train of
thought'; abound .in the old English
Ui : Always Firm.
There are some whom the lightning
of fortune blasts, only to render holy.

A Gentle Hint. Rev. Jonathan
French j of South Andover, was to be
supplied with wood by his parishion
ers, according to the terms of his set
tlement. Winter was coming on, but
no wood had been furnished. Mr.
French waited until the Governor's
proclamation for Thanksgiving came,
when, after, reading it to his people,
he said, with great apparent simplicity;
"My brethren, you percieve his excel
lency has appointed next Thursday as
a day of Thanksgiving, and according
to custom, it is my intention to prepare
two discourses .for that occasion pro
vided I, can write them without a fire."
The hint took, and on the next day all
his winter's wood was in his wood-yard.
A Lesson of Solomon.
1 The old man was toiling through the
burden and heat of the .day, in culti
vating his field with his own hand, and
depositing the promising seed into the
fruitful lap of yielding earth." Sud
denly there stood before him, under
the shade of a huge Linden tree, a vis
ion. : The ' old man was struck v with
amazement. ". -
"I am Solomon," said the phantom,
in a friendly voice. : "What are you
doing here, old man?" "If you are
Solomon," replied the venerable labor
er, "how can you. ask this? In my
youth you sent me to the ant; I saw
its occupation, and learned from that
insect to be industrious and to gather.
What I then learned I have followed
out to this hour,"'
"You have only - learned half your
lesson," resumed the spirit. "Go to
the ant, and learn from that insect to
rest, in the winter of your life, and to
enjoy what you have gathered up."
A great poet represents a great por
tion of the human race. Nature del
egated to Shakspeare the interests and
direction of the whole; to Milton a
smaller part, but with plenary power
over. it. And she bestowed on him
such fervor and majesty of eloquence
as on no other mortal in any age.

. A Mother's Counsel.
; Forty years ago, a mother stood on
the green hills of Vermont, holding by
the right hand a son, sixteen years of
age, mad with love of. the sea. And,
as she .stood by the garden gate, that
sunny morning, she said:, "Edwin,
they tell me, for.I never saw the ocean,
that the . great temptation. of a sea
man's life is drink. ...Promise me be
fore yon quit your, mother's hand, that
you will never drink." I gavo the
promise, and I went the -hroad globe
overr Calcutta, the Medlteranean, San
Francisco, the Cape ot Good Hope,
the North Pole and the South saw
them all in forty years, and I never
saw a glass filled with Sparkling liquor

r One drop from the pure fountain cf
faith would havo yielded incalculable
refreshment and strength. His thoughts I
might have been profound, but they
were not pious; even on the confines
of death, the question "to be cr net to

peated, not the Lord's Prayer, but the
dogmas of his false philosophy, "Man
is a production of parents and nurses,'
of art and time, of breath and air, of
sound and light, of food and clothes !

The Rev. John Newton says in a
letter to, a brother clergyman :
. I look upon prayer meeting3 as the
most profitable exercises excepting
the public preaching in which Chris
tians can engage ; they have a direct
tendency to kill a worldly trifling spirit,
to draw down a divine blessing upon
all pur concerns, compose differences,
and enkindle at". least to maintain
the flame of divine love among breth
ren. But I need not tell you the ad
vantages ; you know them : I only
would exhort you ; and the rather, as
I find in my own case, that the princi
pal cause of my leanness and unfruit
fulne33 is owing to an unaccountable
backwardness to pray. I can write,
read, or.converse, or hear with a ready
will; but prayer is more inward and
spiritual than any of. these ; and the
more spiritual any duty is, the more
my carnal heart is apt to start from it.
When a sin 13 let in a3 a suppliant,
it remains in as a tyrant. The Arabs
have a fable ofa miller who was one
day startled by a camel's nose thrust
in the window of the room where he
was sleeping. "It is very cold out
side," said the camel, "I only want to
get my nose in." The nose was let in
then the neck, and finally the whole
body; Presently the miller 'began to
be extremely inconvenienced by the
ungainly companion he had obtained,
in a room certainly not large enough
for both. "If you are inconvenienced
you may leave," said the camel ; "as
for myself, I shall stay where I am'
Moral Influence of Needle-work.
Richter says: "Most -of the finger
works, whereby the female quicksilver
is made stationary, bring with them
this mischief the ; mind, remaining
idle, either grows rusty with dulnes3,
or is given over to the circling maze
of fancy, where wave succeeds wave.
Sewing and knitting needles, for in

shall require a new thought every min
