Slowly we gather and with pain
From many tolls a scanty galD;
We strive to know, hut scant our powers,
And short the time and strait the bounds,
And ever-unsurmounted towers
The mortal barrier that surrounds
Our being; and the body still.
Imperious slave, betrays the will.
Slowly we gather and with paln
Hut quick the scattering agaln
Whether It chance the falling brain
Lets slip the treasute it hath won
Through weary days, or sudden blow
Lays the unshattered fabric low
ALd all our doing is undone.
Slowly a nation builds Its life
From barbarous chaos Into law
And kindly social ties and awe
Cfpowem divine. For civil strife
Still opens wide within the walls
The yawning guir that will not close
tntll the noblest victim falls;
Or. fierce without, the shock of roes
In one wild hour of blood oerthrovs
The labor or the patient years;
And when at last the work appears
Complete In stately strength to stand.
Klot with paricldal blow.
Or mad ambition's traitor hand.
Fierce clutching at the tyrant's crown,
In headlong ruin lays It low.
Or brute battalions tread It down.
Or ease and luxury and sin.
Fell cankers sown or peace, devour.
Till trappings or Imperial power.
Hide but the living death within.
l!ut doubtless growth repairs decay.
And still the great world grows to more.
Though n.en and nations pass away.
Hut what lr at the source of day
Some cosmic change exhamttfce snoro
Which reeds the myriad forms or lire?
What ir some unlrr.agined strife
Should raise so high tho solar fire.
That all thlssolld earthly frame
Should in as brier a space expire
As rain-drops In a rurnace lUnic?
Vet. ir our ralth Is not the scheme
Or priestly cunning, nor a dream
Which with some fair illusion caught
Ourtiiigrown Manhood's childish thought;
K Christmas tells us true. "To-day
The Child Divine In ISethlehmn lay;"
M He Is a man, who, past the ken
or science In her widest range,
Orders the law or ceaseless rhang.
Content we know ttm lives or men
I'ass as the leaves of spring away
That time will bring Its final day
To the great world Itself, secure
The Eternal Manhood shall endure.

gal that'll show a prettier face over a

The old farmer rang down a broad
piece of uokl on the kitchen table as he
spoke, and turned to his wife with a
fond, proud smile.
She looked up from her Christmas
cookies with an answering light in her
eyes, but said half chidingly,
"Come, father, don't make her vain."
. Carrie sprang from her perch on the
arm of the old-fashioned settle, and
clasping her father round the neck, half
smothered him with kisses; then catch
, ing up the shining coin, she danced up
and down the kitchen till her bright
curls were in a shimmer of light. The
old man watched her with fond de
light, but the prudent mother said
"Why, Carrie.Fm surprised to see you
act so foolish."
Carrie sat down obediently, the gold
clasped tight in her hand, her blue eyes
d ancing with happy expectation. In a
moment she sprang up again.
"Mother," she exclaimed, "may I go
and get it!"
"(let what, child?"
"Oh you know, mother; the blue siik

went back to the old farmhouse with a

"No, papa, no!" faltered Carrie with
a gush of tears that she tried in vain to
repress, I "I gave the money away to a
poor little girl."
It was Christmas day. The snow lay
white and crisp on the chain of hills
that shut in the old New England farm
house, and the sun, just dropping out
of sight, tinged their summits with a
soft glow, and gave the strip of wintry
sky bepond a rosy warmth, so sugges

But Carrie was not indulging in any
such reveries as she stood on the front
steps hearing the sleighs glide by, with
tiieir merry peal of bells, bearing a
freight of happy girls to the ball.
"Oh! I did want to go so badly," she
murmured, "but I can't wear my faded
merino. All the girls will be there,
dressed so nice, and so happy. Oh, dear!
oh, dear!" and a little sob choked her,
and the tears brimmed over and stained
her pretty cheeks just as another sleigh
dashed up, and Mr. Cameron jumped
out and ran up the steps.
"Why, Carrie!" he called oat. "not

Keeping Posted in History.
The American people are a reading
people, and there is no end to the books
that are made for them to read. Every
boy' and girl have all the books they
will ever read, but it is too often the
case that they do not select the best for
them. All good authors in any class
are valuable, but some departments of
reading are better than others. Biog
raphy and history are the most bene
ficial to the average man or woman.
A knowledge of the men and women
that have lived, and the great deeds and
events of their lives, are things that are
most valuable to all. With all the
reading that is done in our country,
there is a greater ignorance of the
crowning events that have transpired
in our brief history than in any other
department of knowledge. But a small
percentage of our people can tell much
that has been enacted by the people.
We do not keep posted in our own his
tory. The writer of this was forcibly
struck with the careful study made of
the history of one's native country,
while in the city of Galveston, Texas.
recently. It was soon after the actire
operations had commenced between
Russia and Turkey. Going down to
the harbor one evening, a small craft
was lying there, employed in bringing
frjiits,tcn from the Mexican coasts to
Galveston for sale. It was a little boat,
comparatively, and but few men were
employed in the navigating of it Going
aboard, there were found a Greek, a
Maltese, a Mexican.au Italian, and two
or three others. They were discussing
their native countries, and it seems that
every event connected with the history
of each was familiar to them; they
seemed to make the study of their
country's history a special duty, and
they were not unfamiliar with Ameri
can history. In our land our people
read fiction, poetry, fashions, and neg
lect the past histories or current events.
History is a text-book in school, but its
study is too supei ficially done. Parents
are seemingly indifferent what their
children are reading. If boys or girls
are directed to read the personal biog
raphies and national and local histories
when young, they will cultivate a love
for it; tastes are formed in reading by
habits ; it should be seen to that every
child cultivates a fair amount of love
for matters that advise them of the
past and current events of our land. It
will stand them in good stead through
life, help them in business, make them
more highly appreciated and better citizens.
Rules for the Journey of Life.
The following rules from the papers
of Dr. West, according to his memo
randum, are thrown together as general
waymarks in the journey of life:
Never ridicule sacred things, or what
others may esteem as such, however
absurd they may appear to you.
Never show levity when people are
engaged in worship.
Never resent a supposed injury till
you know the views and motives of the
author of it And on no occasion re
Always to take the part of an absent
person, who is censured in company,
so far as truth and propriety will allow.
Never to think worse of another on
account of his differing with me in
politics and religious subjects.
Not to dispute with a man who is
more than seventy years of age, nor with
a woman, nor any sort of enthusiast
Not to affect to be witty, or to jest so
as to wound the feelings of another.
To say as little as possible of myself
and those who are near to me.
Toaim atcheerfulness without levity.
Never to court the favor of the rich
by Mattering either their vanities or
To speak with calmness and deliber
ation on all occasions, especially of cir
cumstances which tend to irritate.
Frequently to review my conduct and
note my feelimjs.
A DariiiffFent Above Niagara Falls
On Thursday of last week the tug
Minerva, which is engaged in towing
mud scows from the Wdllaud C mal to
the Niagara River, had proceeded well
out into the river just above the falls
with her usual tow of three loaded
scows when the lines holding the last of
the three parted and the scow reeled
around and made for the rapids. Jim
B impton was at the wheel, and with
great presence of mind he headed his
tug for the rapids and m ide a circuit
around the scow, which was now dan
gerously near the rocks. In the mean
time the men boarded the two reiniin
ing scows and dumped them, rendering
tin in easier to handle. When they aj
proached near enough to the runaway a
man jumped aboard of her, fastened a
line and dumped her. And now came
the tug of war. They lay on very edge of
the rapids, when the throttle was thrown
wide open and the tug headed up stream
from theeati.'act It was nip and tuck,
and they were about to cut away p irt
of the tow, when the tug seemed to
gain a little on the current, and gr.ul
ually emerged into safety with her full

portion of the body is too low, the blood
does not return as readily as it is car

the head to be buried in it and excite

A slang word in common use, "hood

this way: A newspaper man in San
Francisco, in attempting to coin a word
to designate a gang of street Arabs un
der the beck of one Muldoon, hit on the
idea of dubbing them the noodlums;
that is, simply reversing the leader's
name. In writing the word the strokes
of the n did not correspond in height,
and the compositor took it for hoodlum.
Hoodlum it is, and probably ever will
