Wo cannot chooso our sorrowg. One there was,.
Who, reverent of soul, and strong with trust,
Cried, "God, though Thou Bhouldat bow .me to the dust,
Yet will I praise Thy everlasting laws,
Beggared, my faith would never halt, or pause;
But sing Thy glory, feasting on n crust.
Only one boon, one precious boon I must
Doraand of Thee, oh, opulent great Cause.
Let Lovo stay with me, constant to the end,
Though fame pass by and poverty pursue."
With freighted hold, her life ship onward sailed;
The world gave wealth, and pleasure and a friend,
.Unmarred by envy, and whose heart was true.
But ere tho sun reached midday, Love bad failed. ,
Then from the depths, in bitterness she cried, .
"Hell Is on earth, and heaven iB but a dream;
And .hurnan life a troubled, aimless stream; '.'.'
And. God Js nowhere. "Would God bo deride
A loving creature's faith?" A voice replied, v
"The stream flows onward to tho Source Supreme;
Whero things that aro replace the things that seem; '
And where tho deeds of all past lives abide.
Once at thy, door, Lovo languished and was spurnod,
Who sorrow plants, must garner sorrow's sheaf.
No prayers can change the seeding in the sod.
By thine own heart, Love's anguish must be learned,
.Pass on, and know, as ono mado wise by grief;
That in thyself dwells heaven and hell and Qod."

such rays- are caused to pass between
two sets of plates, one set electrified
and the other magnetised, they arc
sorted out by the forces acting upon them
and each ray Is bent out of Its original
course In a direction and to a degree de

their characteristic path which no other
atoms follow; oxygen atoms have their
path, and eo on. The flying atoms of
each separate element, no matter how
thoroughly they have been mixed, to

In Thomas I'larkson. the grand old
Quaker, the Institution had any unaoin

the world that, ubout 1787, Wllberforce
made the acqualntanco of Clarkson and
recelvod from him the Inspiration for
freedom und the detestation of human
bondage that was to make him from
that momrit the prime agent In the glor
ious cause of emancipation.
From 17C8 to 1S33 he thundered away In
the House of Commons against the In
stitution t'f slavery- The planters and
most of tho politicians were bitterly op
posed to him, and even among the church
men he found but little assistance. Ilut,
undeterred by tho mighty opposition and
tho lukewarmness of thoso who should
have been his helpers, he kept on, and In
August, US3, one month after his death,
the emancipation bill was triumphantly
pasted by the Parliament. Though dead,
the great man's voice was heard when
