A Pretty Custom It was a pretty custom long ago lor lovers to exchange rings. The gentle man did not Lave to spend a months income for a pretty trinket lor which lie got uo return, hut he also wore and cherished a souveuir from his sweetheart. Chancer describes a heroine as giving her lover a rin« on which were engraved suitable love mottoes and receiving a like one iu return. — Shakespere makes uiore than one allusion to this custom. In the "Two (ientlemen of Verona" Julia gives Porteus a ring, saying: "Keepyon this remembrance for thy Julia's suke.''— To which hereplies : "Why, then we'll make exebauge; here, take yon this.' A "gimmal" or linked ring was then invented which gave still greater force and significance to the custom. It was made of a double and often triple link, which turned upon a pivot. It could be opened, showing three rings. A small band was attached to each outer ring, wbioh, when closed, caused the hand to clasp, inclosing a heart which was affixed to the centr...

For Our OhurcU Paper. Communion Meetings—(Jonllrmalions. We sometimes see in Ouit Ohurcii Paper interesting accounts of communion meetings given by the minis ter.i in the various sections of our Synod. We like very inuoh to read and learn of their success in building up our beloved Lutheran chnrch. In this way the people who read O. C.

Wo now propose giving to the readers of Our Church l'aper a few items concerning tho meetings we have thus far held this spring and the number of persons added to the churohes. On tho first Sunday of April, the Saorament of the Lord's Supper was administered at Grace Ohurch, Page county, Va., preparatory services having been held on Saturday previous.

CHURCH PAPER. ESTA BUSHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XV. MY RIGHT-HAND LOAD. [Isaiah 41 : 18 ] BY ANNA TKMPI.K. In my right band I clasp to-morrow's grief, And in my left is held the present woe ; No other hand have I wherewith to grasp The needed strength, and wearily I go Weighed down by these two loads, and aching sore j And sore dismayed, because no help I see ; And sore perplexed, because my greater load Doth make me lean and walk unevenly. I lean towards my right,—to-morrow's load Is so much greater than the present grief ; But lo ! at last, for my right hand I find A wondrous strength, a marvelous relief. God takes this right-hand load; I need not hold To-morrow's woe ; and now my hand is free To grasp the strength I need so much to-day, I grasp it, Jesus, when I cling to Thee. 8. Time*. tirace.

For Our Church Paper. Wbal a Preacher Should Do. Your correspondent has had thirty years' experience In the work of the ministry, and claims that he can give good counsel, at least, to young preachers. Ho will write under captions. PREACH CHRIST. The most successful preaohers have always been those whopreached Christ. The promises of the Gospel all cluster around Ghrist and him crucified- He, who has the Christ of Gospel promises, gets heaven. If a minister fails to preach Christ, no matter how accomplished be may be—how much he may succeed in other things, bis ministry will be a miserable failure. Give your people Ghrist. God's book is lull of it. The command Is, "Preach the Gospel," and this cannot be done without preaching Ghrist. Go into your pulpit full of Ghrist, and words of comfort will flow from yoar lips as water from a living fountain, and your bearers will go away from the house of God saying, "it was good /or us to be here.'' Many preachers seem over anxious for literar...

PRETTIEST WEDDING OF ALL. Oli. weddings were plenty In the sfeasoujust ended; I'm certain that twenty Or more I attended; And the brides were as lovely As brides always are. And each seemed "a bright and Particular star;" Hut Fred says of one that we love to recall: •'lt was re ally the prettiest wedding of all." There was no profusion Of jewels or lace. Nor yards of illusion Her figure tc grace; Hut the bride was most simply And tastefully drest In the style and the color That suited her best; And Fred. 111 a whisper.—ho stood at my sideSaid : 'T never beheld a more beautiful brida." I hardly need mention The fact, I presume, Hut all my attention Was tixedon the groom, W hose face so reflected i The joy of his heart. That in the sweet service My own took apart.

How strong and sweet my Father's care! The word, like music in the air, Comes answering to my whispered prayer—"He cares for thee." The thought great wonder -with it brings, My cares are all such little things, But to the truth my glad faith clings, He cares for me. Yet, keep me ever In Thy love, Dear Father, watching from above, And let me still Thy mercy prove, And care for me. Cast me not off for all my sin, But make me pure and true within, And teach me how Thy smiles to win, Who carest for me. O still, in Smnmer'd golden glow, Or wintry storms of wind and snow, Love me, my Father ; let me know Thy care for me. And I will learn to cast the care, Which like a heavy load I bear, Down at Thy feet in lowly prayer, And trust in Thee. For nought can hurt me, shade or eliiue, Nor evil thing touch me ...

> For Our Church Paper. Commencement. The Commencement exercises of the Girls' Home Sohool, Luray, Va., were beid in the school room, Tuesday morning, May 31,1887. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, the house was packed by the friends and patrons of the school. The room was darkened and lamps lighted, out of deference, the Principal stated, co the ladies' preference to appear under gas light. The walls were made ornate with hangings, fresh from the skillful touch of the artists' brush, speaking loudly the praise of the pupils' talent and the teachers' efficiency. These paintings were attracting suoh attention from the admiring audience that it excited apprehension in the mind of the Prin eipal, to suoh an extent, that be was constrained to call their attention to the faot that there was yet a lovelier picture behind the scene. Now it is appearing: "tramp, tramp, the" girls "are marohing,'' to the moving air played by two of the pupils. As they march, the proce...

BEECHER'S CAREER. The Late Plymouth Pastor's Autobiography at Me Have It to a Newspaper. The history of Henry Ward Beeelier ! is remarkable. His birth and early history can be no better told than in his own words, given not quite a year ago: "I was present, of course," he said, "when I was born, but I haven't the slightest recollection of the event. I learned subsequently that it was at Litchfield on June 24, 1813. My childhood was perhaps no different from that of others seventy years ago. The little ones in those days were not given the consideration that is now accorded ; them, and properly so, too. A literature for children was not dreamed of. There were no children's festivals and holidays; no Christmas and New Year's parties. The only time that brought us any especial favor was Thanksgiving, when tho New England hoilsewives vied with one another in the composition of unique pies in limitless quantity. "And so I was let alone. My father was kept busy with his pastoral duties, a...

MY LOVE. Her eyes are like the stars of night. Her voice like music thrills my heart, Her step upon the stair so light Makes all my fervid pulses start. Her dark brown hair is tinged with gold, No form but hers has such a grace; She Is a pleasure to behold. Like sunlight, cheering every place. Hut far above these charms of earth Is her sweet soul, that from her eyes Shines where no sin hath ever birth, A living proof that never dies. To lofty heights of we .lth and fame My gentle maid doth not aspire, Yet, when beside some artful dame. You long for her whose charms ne'er tire. And when you gaze in her bright face, And note her sweet confiding air, You'd hardly think that you could trace A brave and steadfast spirit there. Hut so you can; and thus I know That she'll be true in spite of all; For why? doth not her whole life show A priceless love that naught can pall? " —Emily V. Duncan. A "FINE ART."

CHURCH PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XV. DISTRACTIONS IN PRAYER. All! dearest Lord! I can not pray, My fancy is not free f Unmannerly distractions come, And force my thoughts from Thee. The world that looks so dull all day Grows bright on me at prayer, And plans that ask no thoughts but then Wake up and meet me there. All nature one full fountain seems Of dreamy sight and sound, Which, when I kneel, breaks up its deeps, And makes a deluge round. Old voices murmur in my ear, New hopes start into life, And past and future gayly blend In one bewitching strife. My very llesh has restless fits ; My changeful limbs conspire With all these phantoms of the mind My iuuer Belf to tire. I can not pray ; yet, Lord, Thou knowest The pain it is to me To have my vainly-struggling thoughts Thus torn away from Thee. O, Father! teach me how to prize These tedious hours, when I, Foolish and mute, before Thy face, In helpless worship lie. Yet Thou art oft inost p...
