BT r. X. WATKINS.
Wa'king through life's dusty highways,
Mid the tramp of hurrying feet,
We may gather much instruction
From the ' lessons of the street."
Now a beggar sues for succor
Nay, repress that look of pride I
'Neath that wrecked and shattered body
Doth a human soul reside.
Here's a brow that aeems to tell you,
" I am prematurely old j
1 have spent my yonthft I vigor
In an eager aearch for gold."
On the cheek of yon pale student
Is a divorcement most unkiLd
'Tis the cruel separation
Of his body from his mind.
Hers a painted child of shame
Flaunts in costly robes of sin,
With a reckless mir.b that cannot
Hide the smoulderlg fires within.
And her- 's a face, so ralra and mild,
Mid the restless din and strife j
It seems to say, In every line,
" I'm aiming for a higher lire."
Just then I caught a mournful glance,
As on the human river rushed,
A harrowing look, which plainly said,
'- Ths music of my soul is Lushed."
Look on that face, so deathly pale,
Its bloom and flush forever fled)
I started, for it seemed to bear
A message to the silent dead.
Thui hurries on the stream of life,
To empty where Death's waten meet )
We pass along, wt pass away
Thus end the lessons of ths street.
History of Life.
r lAiay coinwall.
Day dawned. Within a curtained roem,
Filled to faintnesi with perfume,
A lady lay at point of doom.
Day closed. A chi'd had seen the light i
But for the lady fir ind bright
6he rested in undreaming night.
Spring came. The lady'a grava was green
And near It oftentimes waa seen
A gentle boy with youthful meln.
Tears fled. He wore a manly face,
Aid struggled la ths world's rough raee,
And won, at last a lofty-place.
And then he died. Behold before ye,
ll,imnity's brief sum and story
Life, Dealh, and all there is of Gloat.

Mr. F.ditor, Ionider his experience

priceless value, in a certain point of view ;

high, and forty-five inches about the chest J
while the servants of God go creeping
about little shnd-ballied fellows scarce
able to walk under the Christain armor,

where he may bring forth fruit meet for

Thus only can he give indemnity for the
past and security for the future."
Mr. Editor, we want more muscle as
well as more mind in our pulpits. When
Henry Ward B -echer went to be examin
ed by the phrenologist, Fowler walked
around him, and eyed him as aiickey
would eye a fine horse, and said. " You're
a splendid animal " " That's just it," ha
replied ; " that's the lecret of my u cess !"
Truth ! When a man's body is vigor
ous, his mind is vigorous, and iiis thoughts
u re energetic, searching and clear, I don't
know whether our Christain churches
have grown weak because our milliliters
have grown lean, ' or whether the minis
ters have grown lean because the churches
mve become weak ; but of thi I nm sure,
that many of our miin.-ters to-day weigh
too little in the pulpit because they weigh
too little on the scales.
Mr. Kditor, have you noticed how much
smaller veals our minister! wear to-day
thau they did twenty yean agoT Sir,
Joseph Badger's jacket would button round
a half dozen of them ; yea, and you could
tuck in a Culvir.ist under every button. I
