©Rurefi Recos. AN INTERESTING LETTER FROM CHARLOTTE, N. C. REV. P. P. ALSTON. I have received your most excellent little Church paper from time to time in all of her different dresses, but I am best pleased with her present dress. I think you have touched the right chord at last. Allow me to say that the object and tone and size of the Advocate seems to me to be that which will win, and I predict for it a large circulation and a grand success. I am very much pleased with it indeed, and hope to see it largely taken by our Church people. Up to the present I have been unable to take much interest in this most thoughtful enterprise of yours, but I trust that I shall be able to give it more attention in the future. You have my warmest wishes for your success in your NEW FIELD f work and in your renewed effort to place the Advocate more largely in the hands of our people, I hope you will continue to send it to me and set me down as a subscriber.

'IMPEKAftOE. WHAT HE SAW. Ho held fr> fingers tremulous and thin What s&amad a buuch of white transparent grapes; And there saw the fiendish eyes and Bhapes Of hideous representatives of sin, That threatened to break through the walls of skin, Their forms were uglier than forms of apds; fie then bethought of his hair's-breadth escapes. And of the dangers lurking there within. Worse than the cockatrice's eggs their seeds, Hatched in the still, to scorpions, whosa deeds, With fiery stings of woe inoculate Tbe soul with madness and eternal hate. A blessing in the cluster—"fruit divine," Worse thau Pandora's ills in poisonei wine. —Geo. W. Bungay, in Temperance Advocate. DUCHESS OF RUTLAND'S WORK.

THE MEASURE OFOUR DAYS> In all our walks, in all our ways. Think not the measure of our days Is gauged by figures and by rules. As erst was taught us in tV schools; But. as we help a brother's needs By noblw acf;: and generous deeds. By giving comfort where've may. By lighting up a mourner's way; . The sum of meaDS that we employ To turn a fellow's ills to joy— This is the measure of our days. A veteran in the wars of iifo, A prisoned soldier in the strife Of soul with stingy, envious Time Is he who makes his actions rhyme To universal brotherhood. Though long or short hath been his road, Centuries or decades his abode Among his kind, it matters ieast So fellows by him have been blest. His life is measured by his plan Of dealing with his fellow man, This is the measure of his days. And much methinks of time he gains, For all his labors, all his pains, For reaching outward far aud near To succor want and shelter fear. No stingy paddock hems him in To mean desires or grovel...

"I couldn't get up to-day," he would mutter m alarm when anybody came near him, "but I'm getting rested and perhaps by to-morrow—" He was so used to playing his parts that he was ashamed thus to lie and eat the bread of idleness. But he and old Benny used to plan the wonderful feats he would accomplish as soon as he got well. Yet it was soon understood that he would never regain his old powers. •'You see," the doctor said, "he is shattered. His age is in his favor, and if he could have a good home in the country—" "He shall have a home in the country," said old Benny, and he did not lose an hour. He set off to Mrs. Llewellen's old home, he saw her father and mother and pleaded Ted's case with them, but he did not need to plead long. Ted had his first glimpse of the house and the river- and the road within a week. The sight of it brought color to his cheek and the light to his eye. "Why, mother," he cried, raisin;; himself up.

©fiurefi Reros. A LETTER FROM SOUTHERN MARYLAND. Rev. J. 0. Bryant. The Editor of The Church Advocate: \ our article contrasting Romanism and Protestantism relative to their work among colored people is significant and interesting. That denomination that removes the evil which surrounds the colored man and helps him to«rise above his present condition, finally will be com.mitted to them, in a large measure, the religious culture of the colored race. Will it be Rome! This is a practical ■question and nothing but practical Christianity can settle it. A colored man and woman were united in holy matrimony by a Roman priest. The woman was born out of wedlock. She desired not to follow the example set by her parents, but to be lawfully married. The groom took his wife home—to a farm owned by a churchman. But what a sad spectacle! The cabin had only two rooms. The first night of their marriage, the parents occupied one room; the newly married couple, the brother of the bride, and the broth...
