It is doubtful whether personal argn- raent makes many converts in politics; it more often hardens convictions on both sides. It usually ang-ers the contestants, and confirms them in their party belief. There are few, comparatively, who can talk with so just a sense of the value of the opposing- reasons in so cool a temper, and with so thorough an understanding; of the men they sock to chang-e as to secure favorable results. When passion is aroused in attack or defense lo^ie commonV fails. Disputes on religious subjects are apt to end in the same way. Not many infidels or atheists are won by logical conflicts. Wherever you find them you f^id them ready for snuh conflicts; they rather court them. They are proud of their skill in conducting- them; they are quick to lead off and strike out at the slightest opportunity. The moment religion is mentioned they become like "fretful porcupines;" anxious to begin the attack: and too often those who engage them in a logical passape-at-arms come off second best. On this one subject they are keen and well furnished, and know how to find the weak places in an opponent's argument. Infidels have in many cases been forced into this aggressive state by the attitude of Christian believers. "The common idea of an infidel is that he is a kind of monster, either to be severely avoided, or directly attacked with whips of scorpions or bludgeons. How rare it is for a conversation to proceed in the presence of such a man without some allusion to his class, as though he belonged to a species of venomous reptiles. This kind of treatment is not designed to reclaim these religious outcasts; it is designed rather to embitter their opposition not only to all forms of religion but to all professors of religion. It prevents all nersonal approach; and personal approach is of the greatest importance ic reaching the unbelieving or disbelieving heart. It is by the spirit and life that the devoted Christian can most surely influence his infidel neighbor. A minister happened, in his summer vacation, to come into cont-ct with an infidel family. He did not shun them, or show any consciousness of fear of leprous infection. He was his own natural self, associating with them freely in the various diversions of a summer boarding-house, never intruding his opinions on religious subjects, or directly or indirectly attacking theirs. After an association of two weeks, he had won their personal confidence, and when he held a service in a neighboring church on Sunday, as many of them as could go attended and-listened intently to his sermon. He had every reason to believe that he had made a deep impression upon them, and yet he never had a word of argument with them. They first learned to know and respect "him by personal contact, and out of his simple, unostentatious religious life ine man's natural temperament, in. this respect it does not differ from the other Christian graces. A rran of miserly disposition finds it doubly hard to exercise liberality. One who has strong passions must put forth vigorous exertions to control his temper. Those who are naturally melancholy must fight for spiritual joy or they will not attain it. So . a man, whose temperament inclines him to worry and fret, must apply himself with unusual diligence before he can learn to "rest in the Lord." But this grace can be attained by everyone who will use the means and accept the help of the Spirit. Christian calmness is not fatalism, or stoicism, or indifference, or la;::ness. It is founded on faith in God. The belief that God governs the universe, that He is acquainted with the circumstances of all His creatures, and that He is making all things work together for the good of H:'.s people, will banish unquictness and fear from the believing soul. Why should we be anxious about that which is in the hand of the heavenly Father? Why should we be worried about matters which are under His care? Faith is no only the perequisite to salvation: o this there can be no doubt: it isalso th preventive and cure of all undu anxiety. "Let not your heart b troubled; ye believs in God, believe alsi in me." "He that believeth shall no make haste." The members of the church, perfectly sanctified as they are restless as the waves of the sea, worry ingaboutthing-sg-reatacd small, fesrfu of what may be or may not be, plan' ning and working as if all the events o: nature, providence and grace dependec on their wisdom and skill and strength need to have their thoughts often turned to this word of revelation: "The Lord God omnipotent reigncth," Christian calmness manifests itself in patience, contentment, fearlessness, cheerfulness, resignation. It does not lead to neglect of duty or weaken the hands for labor. The calm spirit, while resting in an overruling Providence, recognizes the necessity of appropriate means, and uses them with diligence and wisdom. If the church is not what he, wishes it to be, he does what he can to revive it, and then calmly waits for God's time. If disaster threatens his fortune, if disease visits his body, if bereavement hovers over his home, if the pestilence is marching across the lands and sailing over the seas, he puts forth his best efforts to defend himself and his from harm, and then lays aside distressing anxiety. Why should he not be calm? God is able to care for His people. He is willing to care for them, for He spared not His own Son. He clothes the grass of the field. He feeds the young lions when they cry. Surely then He will not forsake those who put their trust in Him. There is a need of Christian calmness every day. A calm Christian will do most efficient work, A trembling hand can not effectively swing the hammer or guide the pen. Trembling lips can not speak the strengthening word". The trembling heart can not teach confidence in God. What the church needs to defend its battlements and to push, on its aggressive warfare is an army oi calm veterans, confident in their King-. This grace has .as ; much to do with the believer's happin'ess as with his usefulness. Anxietj' banishes peace, silences our songs of praise, and interferes .with the enjoyment of others. Useful and happy is that man who inherits any considerable 'portion of the Saviour's bequest: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you."—United Presbyterian.

Independent CHRISTIAN CALMNESS. A Grace That Has Much to Do With tho Believer's Usefulness. Christian calmness is a fruit of tho spirit. Mature has little to do with it. Some are more phlejrmatic in disposition than others, and are less easily annoyed and excited by their surround- ngs, but the grace of calmness is of Divine origic. There are Christians who find it comparatively easy to make this attainment; there are others who each it only after rears of struggle. ?his is to be accpnnted-for in part tr Blnmlng God for Misfortunes. How ready men are to trace their misfortunes to God. and to lay the blame on Him. A little girl fell into a mudpuddle which she had been forbidden to go near. It was a clear act oi disobedience, but instead of frankly acknowledging it, she struggled out' and said to her mother who had run to her help: "Mamma, I don't believe God loves me, or He wouldn't let me fall into this ugly mudpuddle." We are only children of oa larger growth. We play the fool, and when we feel the consequences of our folly we mit on an air of injured innocence, and pose as martyrs. A pupil wastes his time and fails in his examinations, and then accuses his teachers of nartiality. A preacher ncg-lects his pulpit preparation, and when he is asked to resign blames his congregation. There are mysteries in adverse .providences, but not so many as we sometimes think. II is generally true that we fall into the pit ourou-n hands have digged.—United Presbyterian. seeking in her tastes. With a keen eye for the material side of life, she has" a no less ready appreciation of literature and art: while exacting as she is toward men, there lurks in her a sentimental vein, which causes her to cast a halo ot romance round even the most prosaic and dollar-grabbing of husbands. In the middle and western states early marriage is the rule, although the age is rising, and a girl who -twenty years ago^ would have been married at the age ot sixteen, now delays until from twenty to twenty-four. Young wives, as a rule, have no home oi their own. The girl cot infrequently brings her young husband to live in the house of her parents, for the mother-in-law is no fc-mme terrible as she Ls supposed to be with us. The young people have a suit of rooms set apart for them, where they spend their coxy evenings alone, while they join the family circle for meals or in turn entertain their relations and friends in their own little household. The young wife is thus spared the worry of housekeeping for the first few years, while the young husband, who would probably have remained a bachelor for ten years longer, is en-' courarred to take the plunge long before he is ready to keep up an expensive separate home. Other young- couples take refuge in the ubiquitous boarding house, where an indifferent table and still more indifferent fellow-boarders soon lead to promptings of the spirit to find a home at all hazards for themselves. The American woman is essentially genial. She is not so anxious to know the pedigee and occupation of every tranger who may happen to build a house next to hers or take the next pew to her at church. She will welcome the newcomer whether her husband aappens to deal in land or law, stocks or sugar, medicine or morals. It is all "business 1 ' in her eyes and she can not understand the delicate lines drawn between standing behind the counter of a bank or a grocer's store. Every house furnishes it least a score of rocking chairs, and me's first introduction . to a ladies' ocial circle is decidedly a bewildering •nc, for each individual chair rocks its wn time, and the effect upon the brain s analogous to that which would be rod need upon the ear were each ndividaal instrument in an orchestra to eep their own time. The tone of American conversation is jrovcrbially high, and the questions discussed in London drawing rooms, often in the presence of men and young girls, are entirely avoided in America, except by that limited and foolish set who live to oat, "dress and imitate nothing but the follies of the English. On the other hand, the best and most intelligent American women have a great admiration for the English, they are envious to desperation of their full, mellow voices, their bodily vigor, fine complexions and repose of manner. The American woman has no renose—hence the rocking chair in which she works off the nervous energy which the exhilarating climate stimulates to so intense a degree. She is never sleepy or dull, but longs for the rest-taking- faculty which would give her a chance of building up her frail body and strengthening her nerves. The American woman is hospitable, generous, intelligent, vivacious and brave, but the lines which apnear under the eyes and round the mouth ere she reaches thirty tell their own. sad tale. What she needs to perfect and maintain her charms is the cold morning tub, less violet powder, more fresh air and out-of-door exercise, and the utter extermination of the horrid furnace, which, placed in every cellar, sends forth sirocco-like blasts of air into every chamber in the iouse, and so converts the modern American home, in point of temperature, into a conservatory for forcing plants. (I will make an exception in law work, of course), unless your manuscript is entirely flawless. Make your copy as much better as you can, both as regards the language and punctuation. Get your copy up in the very best style you possess. In such a case you will never fail to win a pleasant '"Thank you" from your customer, and what is more, his future work In a little while, by strict attention to some of these small details, you will find yourself gaining rapidly in confidence, and also increasing your store of knowledge. Use your eyes and ears; hear and sec all you can without seeming to do so. Guard against betraving confidence, in even the smallest matters. Study your customers: in fact, make your business a study of human nature. Be able to tell a crank the moment you put eyes upon him, and then work harder than you ever did in your life to please that crank. I remember making a very cranky man say, "Thank you, madam!" He was a gi-ufly. surly, two hundred-pound man, and I suppose thought that no one on earth knew as as much as he did But before he knew it he had actually said "Thank YOU'' and "Good-day, madam." I think that made me feel well for a week. Keep a dictionary near you, as you will certainly need it more than once, or I am very much mistaken. When you feel your need of it, take it up openly and find your words (even a stenographer is net expected to know everything)? Perhaps the most important thing I have left until the last, the absolute necessity of keeping your typewriter clean, as you can not expect to get the best results from your labor from an unclean machine. Learn the mechanism of your instrument so that you can adjust it yourself, or take it apart and put it together again. I mean this literal!}-. I often hear stenographers sav: "I can't do good work when I have such a miserable machine." Just look at your machine again and see if you have always kept it absolutely clean and free from dust; see if you have allowed it to become gummed with oil, etc. Learn, also, to "time" your work, so that if it should accumulate you will be able to tell each customer exactly when he can have his work, and then see that you keep your promise. Finish your work exactly on time if possible. You will find that customers will learn to depend upon you, and it will materially add to your profits.—-Nellie M.

Some Points That 3I:ij- Bo of Interest to Young Lady Stenographers. My office is situated in a sunny nook in the reading-room of one of the most prominent hotels in Michigan, right down among the "lords of creation." I have occupied the same oifice for two years, and have found the gentlemen who frequent the hotel uniformly courteous, but a stenographer's life has its difficulties, and I feel that my experience may be of use to others who may be about to go and do likewise. In the first place do not expect more than you are willing to give, and you will never be disappointed. You will no doubt be nervous at the outset—this seems to be the fate of all stenographers —but the next thing is to rid yourself of that bugbear. The only way I have ever found to do that is to forget self entirely and think only of the dictator, or the work in hand. It is, I think, the hardest lesson a stenographer has to learn. Then, too, never by any means sacrifice accuracy for mere speed. Speed will come in good time. When a man comes to you to request you to take his dictation, do not hurry, and thus do yourself and your dictator an iajurv. but quickly (there is a great difference in ; 'quickly" and "hurriedly"; get together your note book and pen or pencil, as the case may be. and then signifv your readiness to begin. If you Sad your customer is talking too fast, kindly bo o firmly request him to talk a little slower; thus you will be sole to transcribe a clean accurate copy. Most gentlemen will thank you for thus intimating- your desire to do good and accurate work. Another thing you will find of great 'benefit; try to do a little more than yon promise. Make all your own corrections.
