It sp pervaded his whole being as to form a second and a better nature.. Travelling from Bath to London on, one occasion, he found himself inside the epach in company with two voung la,dies, the daughters—as he understood before the journey's end—of a clergyman in the neighborhood of London. The young ladies had just been visiting a religious relative at Bath, and seemed like birds escaped from imprisonment. Their Bonversation was full of life and merri-¦ ment. ¦ ;; " "" ' ; ' : '*" ' "I could not stand it muchlon_^er _^ " said one of them significantly, -f'.It was nothing but Methodisni." a Do you know what Methodism is Vf said Dr. Morison, quietly.

Little, Worries. There- is indeed no more common error_, than to estimate the extent of suffering b ' j the greatness of the causes which have produced it; we mean-their greatness, as regards the • amount of notice which they attract. The anguish of an emperor whe has lost his empire, is probably not one whit greater than that of a poor lady who loses her little means in a swindling bank, and is obliged to take away her daugh'ter from school, and, to move into an. inferior dwelling. - Nor is it unworthy of remark, in thinking of sympathy with human beings in suffering, that scrubby-looking little men, with weak hair arid awkward demeanor, and not in the least degree gentleman-like, may, through domestic;-worry, and bereave? ment, undergo _distress? quite as .great _ae heroic individuals six -feet four inches in height, with a large quantity of raven hair, and with eyes of remarkable depth of expression.
