_loefrg. with Me AMde. Abide "with me! Fast falls the eventide; The darkness thickens : Lord! _^rith me abide j When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me! Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see: ' _0 Thon, who ehangest not, abide with me! _1 fear no foe, with thee afc hand to bless; , Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness: Where is Death's sting? Where, Grave, thy victory ? ¦ I triumph still, if thou abide with me. Reveal thyself before my closing eyes, Shine through the, gloom, and point me to the skies: Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; In life, in death, O Lord! abide with me.

Prudence in Dress. Flannel or merino,, all wool, trader-garments, except that in tbe article of drawers they may preferentially use linsey-woolsey, or Canton flannel, and these should be made tight at the ankles. No Hoops !—no punnel sleeves for the cold air to rush up to the arm-pits, and chill the chest The whole of the under-clothes, also, as well as the dress, should be made, to cover the shoulder and collar-bones, close around the throat. By this means you will be prevented from throwing additional weight upon the shoulders, in the shape of extra shawls and cloaks, and thus : diminish the labor of breathing. Also coyer the top of the head. Beware of catarrh, and neuralgia !—Medical Specialist_^
