Poetry. THE REFORMER'S HYMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
fottrS. THE REFORMER'S HYMN. Work while life is given, Faint not although 'tis hard; Work is the will of heaven, And peace is the reward. All work is holy. What though thy lot be hidden, And proud one's pass thee by ; Feel duty as God-bidden, Act as beneath his eye ! For work is holy. Cleave to thy humble place, Ennoble it with thy zeal; Work with a manful grace, Make fruitless cumb'rers feel That work is holy. Scorn naught as plain or mean; All with thy worth impress, That all where thou hast been May day by day confess That work is holy.
May. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
IN. me greatest activity and attention are Requisite in the garden this month. The gardening operations of the past year approach a close, and the vacant ground may now be finally prepared for the crops of the following year. The days now draw in fast, and being frequently succeeded by cold, and even frosty nights, the change of temperature is consequently very great, which is very fatal to the young plants. All crops prepared for early pulling should be carefully attended to. This is a good time for planting out cabbages and onions for seed, if the ?summer has not been too late. They should not be placed too near each other, particularly where bees are kept, as the flowers may become inoculated. Arti choke beds now require to be looked after, and some straw covering laid over them at night whenever the weather is chilly. Rhubarb and sea-kale must be dressed with good manure, and the latter covered tip to biahcii. Plant Jefusaleni artichokes and horse-radish in rows, sidtf by side, ...
The Children's Portfolio. AN ELEPHANT'S REVENGE AND REMORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
Cjjilbrtn's portfolio. AN ELEPHANT'S EEVENGE AND REMORSE. How sad it is when men delight in torturing the noble animals created by our Heavenly Father for the service of mankind. We hope that all our readers will practice kindness to animals, and never be guilty of cruelty. . The following fact, extracted from j The Quarterly Token of the Church Missionary Society, shows not only the result of cruelty to an Elephant, but also furnishes a striking illustration of the affection and docility of that noble animal, from which even human beings may learn a practical lesson. The sad scene represented in the engraving was witnessed by numerous spectators, who had assembled in the kingdom of Oude, in Central India, to see two elephants cruelly urged to engage in battle with each other. A favourite elephant, a remarkably fine animal, whose name was Malleer, had to contend with a most formidable opponent of his own species in a spacious aiena, around which the king and thousands of his people ...

The plants will last for several years, and it is a choice vegetable, and said to be very suitable for consumptive persons and invalids^
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
CHAPTER in. j " Unsleeping Death, at night, at morn, j At noon and eventide, ! Doth ever, through thy length and breadth, I With noiseless lootsteps glide." I - Josephine. j " GOD has two thrones: one in the highest hea vens; the other in the lowest hearts."-Wright. Darkness closed in, the cawing of the crows died away and the curlew wailed ; I hastened forward alone with God and my sorrow. The path wai ill defined, and as the feeble, flickering light vanished, a fear of losing the way seized me. Later in the evening there would be moonlight, and I determined to wait for the moon's rising, and crouched down at the foot of an old tree. Wild and bitter thoughts crowded into my mind-why was t alone in a strange land, without father or mother ? The sin that had slain one had caused the heart of the other to break, and had cast their off spring into the desolation of that Australian forest, where the wild dog sought his prey, and night birds shrieked. " Oh ! Father in Heaven, I have none...
HOW TO SELECT FLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
HOW TO SELECT FLOUR. 1. Look at its colour; if it is white, Yrifcli a slightly yellowish straw-coloured tint it is a good sign. If it is very white with a bluish cast, or with black specks in it, the floUr is ndt good. 2. Examine its adhesiveness ; wet and knead a little of it between your fingers; if it works elastic it is good ; if it woiks soft and sticky, it is poor. Flour made from spring wheat is likely to be sticky. ' 3. Throw a little lump of dry flour against a dry, smooth* perpendicular surface: if it adheres in a lump, the flour has life in it; if it falls like powder, it is bad. 4. Squeeze some of the flour in your hand; if it retains the shape given it by pressure* that, too, is a good sign4 Flour that will stand all these tests, it is safe to buy* These modes were given by old flour dealers, and we make no apology for printing them, as they pertain to a mat* ter that concerns every body, namely : the quality of that which is " the staff of life/'-Ohio Farmer, THE Villa...

Itnrn fektr. jo7 -5 ( Continued from page 124.J OVER and over he was tossed in the merciless surf, at one moment clashed with fearful violence upon the sandy »hore, which he grasped with frantic tenacity-at the next, dragged from his frail hold by the receding wave and again buried in the foaming waters,-the " pains of death got hold on hi'rn," and consciousness fled. * * * * * " Where am I ? " asked Henry in a feeble tone, to a gentle-looking girl, who had softly drawn aside the white curtains of the comfortable bed on which he lay, and smoothed his pillow. " Oh, do tell me if I am in this world ? " he continued imploringly, teeing that his fair visitant was about to glide out of the room. " Hush/' said the girl, looking on him with a countenance sweetly blend' ing love, joy, and pity; " you must not talk. I will run for mamma; she will be so delighted to see you restored to consciousness. You have been very ill for a long time, and you must be kept very quiet to insure your recove...

Scenes from a Life Drama. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
'teues fram it fife Iraraa. BY THE AUTHORESS OF n GERTRUDE. (Continued from page 119.) SOME months elapsed. I saw Mrs. Dean twice. My feelings on many subjects were much altered. The j bitterness which had grown in my heart, and mingled with my life, destroying every pleasure, was less intense. A Heaven-sent ray like the sunbeam through the prison bars, cast light upon the gloom. I had learned to ride, and by extending my rambles saw much of the country. The cold weather was approaching, but the forests assumed no gay autumnal tints, beinsr evergreens. The high range of mountains seen in the distance looked often dark and shady, for clouds crossed the sky, the wind howled, and winter flowers took the place of the more numerous and showy summer blooms ; but our life was unchanged : we rose early, immediately break lasted, and separated for the day; Lieutenant Yarden going to the town ship, and returning about mid-day. Angas was either reading in his room, or more actively engaged ; a...
Selections. AN IMPROMPTU LIFE PRESERVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
Aft IMPROMPTU LIFE PRESERVER; "In the midst Of these horrifying moments a man was observed to jump From the Wreck into the sea. It was con cluded by the watchers on shore that he had voluntarily destroyed himself to fcvoid dying by inches of cold and hunger." After all, who could blame him ? It was a question of only an hour or so, for hope there appeared none. But the 'crowd was agreeably disappointed, for the man held his head up in the midst of the hissing surges boldly, and, although he disappeared every moment, yet, by the aid of good glasses, his head w£ls seen t« bob up again, a conspicuous black object in the surrounding £oam; Expec tation stood on tiptoe. Would he reach the shore? Was asked by a hundred voices in an instant, and everybody was anxious to do something for a man who so nobly tried to assist himself. The minutes that followed were intensely «xciting; every movement of the swim mer was eagerly noticed, and it was with difficulty that several generous spirits Wef...
A Midnight Scene. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
% lltihigjrt Stent. PASSING down George-street the other evening, our attention was attracted by two gentlemen, with whom we are partially acquainted. They were en joying an evening stroll and cordially conversing, of which we overheard the following;-* "W ere you ever in England?" asked Mr. A. of his friend. " No, never," was the emphatic reply, " but my intentions are to proceed thither shortly, so as to arrive there in the spring ; and probably I will extend my continental tour as far as the scene 4>f the late operations in the Crimea." Indeed !" replied Mr. A., " if that is the case I shall get you to transact a little business, on my account, for which, of course, I will give commis sion. But if you are agreeable we'll go into the hotel over the way, where we can have a glass together, and talk over these matters." " Agreed," rejoined Mr. B.; and forthwith they walked in. Not being believers in the efficacy of alcoholic drink to seal friendship, or to accelerate the dispatch...
Purchasing a Live Lobster. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 24 April 1858
Ilnnjjasfrijj a Jibe fobsttr. A RAW-LOOKING beauty, standing some six feet or more in his boots, fresh from the country, arrived in town (Philadel phia) a day or two since, with a view to examine the " lions " in the Quaker city. He had walked leisurely round Grirard College-his " wondering gaze " had been gratified with a peep at the Branch Mint, "where a common-looking chap " made money " a darned sight faster than ever he could; he had seen the old United States Bank, but, for the life of him, he couldn't find the place where it had broke-he had sauntered through Fair mount, where some 'cute chap was squirting water round, most beautiful lie had marched around the outskirts of the Prisons, but they weren't sharp enough to get him in there-oh, no!-he had trotted through the Museums, which lie didn't consider any very " great shakes "-and just before leaving in the eight o'clock train, for home, he strolled down to the Market-house, to ascertain, if possible, where all the vegetabl...
