As Satan passed through heaven from
A walk on earth one dav.
The Lord look'd up and questioned him
"Didst hear my creatures pray?"
Ay, Lord, I heard their pray'rs resound
w fiere e er I listeninc stood.
But. by my soul, not one of them
Frayed for his brother's good."
Then looked Jehovah fire and flame,
Ana spake nis fierce decree
"Vh makes a selfish prayer is thine,
in otners come to me.
When all that night on Heaven's walls
Ihe Lord and Hatan stood.
To see how many sons of men
u ould pray for a brother's good.
A last they watched there many an hour
And yet there came no sounds:
The poor they piayed for pennies and
ine rich tuey prayed for pounds.
The ugly prayed for beauty and
I lie awkward prayed for trace:
The old ones prayed for youthful looks
lo hide a wrinkled face.
The limping prayed for healthy joints,
ine red-naired prayed for brown:
The short ones prayed for longer legs,
ine long to be cut down.
The brown-eyed prayed for blue ones,
ine cross-eyed prayed for straight:
The fat ones prayed for melting down,
The lean ones prayed for weight.
The doctor prayed for sickness and
The undertaker death;
The captive prayed for sunshine and
The phthisicky for breath.
The maiden prayed for lover's vows,
lue soldier prayed for war;
The beggar prayed for a horse to ride,
Xhe drunkard prayed for "more."
The sick man prayed for break of day,
: me tniei tor longer nignt;
The miser prayed for more of gold,
The blind man prayed for sight.
At last there came a tearful voice
Up to the starlight sky,
"Obi may my uncle's soul this night
Rest with the Lord on high."
There's one for me," Jehovah cried;
"Not so," the Devil said,
"He's heir to all his uncle's wealth.
Hence wants the old man dead."
Just then there came another voice
In supplicating tones,
"Oh I may the grave be lata to close
O'er neighbor David's bones."
"There's surely one for me at last!"
But Satan cried: "Not yet 1
lie merely wants the man to live
Until he pays a debt."
And so they waited till the stars
Went out at break of day ;
Then Satan seized bis bag of souls
And sped his homeward way.
Upon high heaven's glittering wall
Long had they listening stood,
But not a mortal all that night
Prayed for his brother's good. Ex.

And the last wife was Amelia.
And after the sealing she opened her
moutn and said:
"Ami, Amelia, the favored one, to

build no palace; we must abide here in

- And Amelia reached forth with her

"Shut up, thou bald-head: the wag of
thy jaw wearieth me." -
And he cried aloud, saying; ''The
hand of affliction is heavy upon the
servant ; of God. Oh Lord, take me
from this wildersessl"
But the Loid harkened not, for His
spirit was bitter against the false pro
phet, asd she smote him many times.
And behold. : he builded a palace for
his favored wife, for he durst not re

pin. . ....

How to Ban.
Very few boys know how to ruu.
"Ho, ho!" says a dozen boys." Just
brine on the boy that can run faster
than I can!"
But. stop a moment. I don t mean
that most boys can't run fast I mean
thev can't run far. . I don't ' believe
there is one boy in hrty, or tnose who
may read this, who can run a quarter
of a mile at a good smart pace without
havincr to blow like a porpoise by the
time he has made his distance. And
how many boys are there who can run,
fast or slow, a full mile without stop
It hardly speaKs weii -ror our race,
does it, that almost any animal in cre
ation that pretends to rau at all can
outrun any of us?
Take the smallest terrier-dog you
can find, that is sound and not a pup
py, and try a race with him. lie U
run a thud raster man you can, ana
this with legs not more than six inches
lone. I have a hound so active that
he always runs at least seventy-five
miles when I stay a day in the woods
with him: for he certainly runs more
than seven miles an hour, and if I am
gone ten hours, you see he must travel
about seventy-five miles or distance.
And then, a good hound will some
times follow a fox for two days and
nights without stopping, going more
than three hundred and fifty miles,
and he will do it without eating or
Then, you may have heard how
some of the runners in the South Af
rican tribes will run for long distances
hundreds of miles carrying dis
patches, making Yery few stops.
I make these comparisons to shew
that our bovs who can not run a mile
without being badly winded are very
Dut I believe I can tell the boys
something that will help them to run
better. I was a pretty old boy when I
first found it out, but the first time I
tried it I ran a mile and a quarter at
one dash, and I was not weary or
blown. And now I'm going to give
you the secret:
Breathe through your nose:
I had been thinking what poor run
ners we are, and wondering why the
animals can run so far, and it came to
me that perhaps this might account
for the differeace, that they always
take air through the nose, while we
usually beem to pun! through our
mouths before we have gone many
reds. Some animals, such as the dag
and fox, do epeu their mouths and
pant while running, but they do this to
coel themselves, and not because they
cannot get air enough through their
I found once, through a sad exper
ience with a pet dog, that dogs must
die if their nostrils become stopped
They will breathe through the mouth
only while it is forcibly held open; if
left to themselves they always bre&the
through the nose.
So, possibly, we are intended to take
all our breath through the nose, unless
necessity drives us to breathe through
There are many other reasons why
we ought to make our noses furnish
all the air to our lungs. One is, the
nose is filled with a little forest of
hair, which is always kept moist, like
all the inner surfaces of the nose, and
particles of dust that would otherwise
rush, into the lungs and make trouble,
are caught and kept out by this little
hairy net-work. Then the passages of
the nose are longer, and smaller, and
more crooked than that of the mouth,
so that as it passes through them the
air becomes warm. . But these are
only a few reasons why the nose ought
not to be switched off and left idle, as
so many noses are, while their owners
go puffing through their mouths.
All trainers ot men (or racing and
rowing, and ail other athletic contests,
understand this, and teach their pupils
accordingly. If the boys will try this
plan, they will soon see what a differ
ence it will make in their endurance.
After you have run a few rods holding
your mouth tightly closed, there will
come a time when it will seem as
though you could not get air enough
through the nose alone; but don't give
up f keep right on. and in a few mo
ments you will overcome this. A lit
tle practice of this method will go far
to make you the best runner in the
neighborhood. Theo B. Wilson, St.
Nicholas for Feb. 1882.

Miss Genevieve Ward.
New York Times' London Letter.
There is no actress to-day more thor
oughly equipped, intellectually, than
Miss Genevieve Ward. She is apt to
know more than her brightest critics
and this is worm-wood to her critics.
Her precise place among the foremost
living actors.fiis, perhaps, indefinitly
hxed, but it is widely felt that in a
line of parts, brilliant and subtle and
many-sided, suggestive of both high
comedy and tragedy, she is peculiarly
without a strong competitor. Her
Stephanie settled this beyond argu
ment. She has no more natural ge
nius than liernhardt; her acting lacks
the youthful charm and fascination
which gave a special beauty to Mile.
Barnhardt's; it is the acting of a
woman perfectly poised mentally, rig
orously trained in a modern and cos
pomolitan school, endowed with clear
dramatic instinct and searching insight

weighty and mature. Her Stephanie
may, nevertheless, be fitly compared
to Bernhardt's Camille; for both, rep
resenting extreme modern types, are
equally finished, flexible, and brilliant,
and both are the finest possible ex

It is significant that Miss Ward s

George Eliot and Emerson.
The world is never without its men
of spiritual vision a kind of insight
into reality essentially different from
George Eliot's keen analysis of human
nature. It is a genius of higher order
than hers; it is telescopic, reaching the
heavens, where hers was microscopic,
revealing the things of earth. Mr.
Myers names George Lliot, Carlyle,
and Ruskin as three prophets. But
we have in Emerson a greater prophet
than any of the three; healthy Where
Carlyle was dyspeptic; serene and all
viewing where Ruskin is partial and
passionate: a seer where George Eliot
was an analyst. She knew the thought
of her day and generation, and was
mastered by it: he knows it, and mas
ters it. No one is freer than he from
bondage to tradition. No one sees
more clearly the meanings of science.
He is so free from all false or exagger
ated fervers that to many he seems
cold. . In him the brilliant rays of col
orof insight, passion, tenderness, im
agination, worship, love seem to
blend in the clear white light of truth.
And his sincere message rings always
with a jubilant tone of faith, and hope,
and joy. In everything he sees divini
ty, the token and the very presence
of God. For him, life pours from
every urn a wine of exquisite joy,
which never intoxicates, but yields a
celestial vigor. With the heavens
opening above and about him, he yet
keeps his feet always on the firm
ground of familiar fact. His poems
are inspirations of serene joy. The
present is to him so full that be will
scarcely dwell on the future. Yet, in
his "Threnody, born or a great sor
row, we have the foretaste, and al
most the "present sense, of eternity.
How nobly, in "Social Aims," he writes
of Immortality. He goes deeper than
any conviction about man's futurity,
to that absolute trust in all-ruling
good which is the heart of spiritual
faith. "I think all sound miads rest
on a certain preliminary conviction,
namely, that if it be best that con
scious personal life shall continue, it
will continue; if not best, then it will
not." "Topics of the Times," in The
Century for February.

Gov. Murray tells a laughable story
of his experiences in the Georgia
march to tbe sea, which is worth re
"Speaking of the famous march
through Georgia," said the governor,
"I never shall forget tho amount of
money it cost to keep an old woman
from crying herself to death. Of
course we were obliged to subsist ofl
the country as we went along, and wo
naturally took about tho best in sight.
One day we took possession of a chick
en ranch kept by an old lady, who
stood at the front gate with a broom
and threatened to lick all of Sherman's
forces if they did not move on. Now,
chickens were considered as officers'
meat, and. as we were in torn ally hun-
jry, we went for these old hens pretty
ively. When she saw that her favor
ite fowls were being caught and killed
she keeled right over and began to cry.
Presently she began to pcrcarn, and fin
ally you could hear that woman's yells
clear to Atlanta. I sent tho surgeons
in to quiet her, but they filled, and
then all the officers took turns, but the
more attention paid to her the more she
howled. I then got pretty nervous
over the infernal noise, because the
whole army would hear it, and they
might suppose somebody was torturing
the' woman. Finally Sherman rode up
and asked what was it all about, and
when we told him he said: 'Give her a
bushel of confederate bonds for. her
and see if that won't stop her.' Acting
on this hint, I proceeded to business.
We had captured a confederate train
the day before with 4,000,000 of con
federate money, and I hunted up the
train at once. The money was worth
about two cents on the dollar. Well,
I stuffed about half a million dollars in
a carpet-sack aud marched into the
" 'Madam,' said I, opening the sack,
I'll give you $50,000 to quit this noise.'
It was as still as death in a minute, and
then her face expanded in a broad
smile. I laid the packages ofjnoney
on the table and I never saw such a de
lighted woman. Tho effect pleased
me, and I continued: 'Gen Sherman
F resents his compliments snd $100,000.'
never in my life saw such a pleased
old woman, and I wound up by dump
ing the contents of the sack right down
on the floor, and telling her that when
it came to contributions to distressed
females I could not be outdone by any
She invited the officers to supper
and she cooked every chicken on the
ranch, and set out cider as free as
water. We were having a pretty good
time when a long, lank old coon came
in, and she said it was her husband.
Pretty soon his eye fell on the money.
'Sarah,' said he, ?where in blazes did
you get all this darned truck?"
