A man iu his carriage was riding along, A gaily dressed wife by hU side; In satin and lace, she looked like a queen, And he like a .king in his pride. A wood sawyer stood on the street as he passed; The carriage, the couple he eyed, And said, as he worked with his saw on the log, I wish I was rich, and could ride. The man in the carriage remarked to his wife: One thing I would do If I could, I'd give all my wealth for the strength and the health Of the man who is sawing the wood. A pretty yeaag maid with a bundle of work, Whose face as the morning was fair, Went tripping along with a smile of de- light. While humming a love breathing air. She looked in the carriage; the lady she saw,' " Arrayed in purple so fine, And said, in a whisper, I wish in my heart Those satins and laces were mine.

This ocean of mixed oxygen and nitrogen at the bottom of which we mortals llomider, about contains more than is dreamed about in their philosophy. The old spelling book exercises, "Birds live in the air," " Fish live in the sea," would be the substance of their replies, if ques- tioned as to the living things which inhabit air and ocean. But the air is the home of immense numbers of little things which the unaided eye cannot perceive, as well as the insect tind feathered races. This vital tluid without which we cannot ordinarily live five minutes, is literally cuwd- ed with life; like an embryotic state it is true, but none the less life on that account. An egg is a living thing; if you touch your tongue to the ends of a newly laic, egg, you will find that one end is quite warm, while the other may be quite cold. So long as that heat remains the...

' We had been married for several years. We owned a pretty houso, had a pleasant circle of friends, and enjoyed a social position quite equal to our moderate desires. My hus- band was kind and thoughtful for my comfort. I had two sweet chil- dren. There was everything to make me happy. Yet, strange to say, I was not happy. From a child I had longed to lie the possessor of diamonds, I never saw a lady with handsome diamonds that I did not covet them. I resolved never to marry unless my husband should be rich enough to give me diamonds. That, at last, I broke this resolution is not wonderful; for who ever did marry exactly the kind of person they had determined on? Fo...

Children, obey your JParents in all things in the Lord, for this is right, Love another. The Honest Fenny. Once on a time there was a poor woman who lived in a tumble-down liut far away in the wood. Little had she to eat and nothing' at ail to burn, and so she sent a little boy she had out into the wood to gather fuel, lfe ran and jumped, and jumped and ran, to keep himself warm, for it was a cold gray autumn day, and every time he found a bough or a root for his billet, he had to beat his arms across his breast, for his fists were as red as the cranberries over which he walked, for very cold. So when he had got his billet of wood and was off for home, he came upon iU clearing of stumps on the hillside, and there he saw a white crooked stone. "A1i! you poor old stone," said the boy ; " how white and wan you Mare! I'll be bound you are frozen to death;" and with that he tookoff his jacket, and laid it on the stone. So in he got home with his billet of wood his mother asked what it al...

The divine, preaches the subduing of the carnal heart, as the first and last effort. The leech abstracts the blood he de- pletes; he takes away the excesses which have accrued, and encourages the system which he would build up.
