FOR SUNDAY READING. FO.T THE REWARD. I would not rest till I am weary, I would not coiiso till sinks the sun; Until tli« work that Goii brings near me Has all bcsin Uout'. Each work neglected is bereavement, A loos to some ^reat or small; Each noble triumph o£ achievement Is good for all. Whateverunforsecn conditions Around onr paths In life prevail, « II we arc faithful to our missions We can not full. The soul that never slights n duty, However irksome, strange or hard, Will see at lust the unditumod beauty Of his roward. Oh, glorious thought, to feel In Heaven That none by our neglect were harmed; That every task which God hail given Was well performed. O, let us then, with firm decision, Do every task, bear every load; And leave at last, with Uuu submission, Our Work with God, —L. E. Dlekunga, in Christian at Work. ENCOURAGE THE PREACHER. They Are a Sensitive People and Need the Aid All'ordecl by Appreciative H carers. Preachers are called a.very sensitive class of men, and most of them will not deny the charge. The character of their work tends to make them sensitive. And because they are sensitive is the very reason why they need the help which it is easily within the power of many, if not all, of their hearers to render them, especially -when they preach. Any preacher who is quite indifferent to the listlessness of Ms hearers must be a very thick-hided and dull man, and, of course, a poor and uninteresting preacher. It may seem to be a very small matter, to a hearer, to cast his eyes around the church much of the time during the delivery of the sermon, as though the sermon were of no special interest to him; but it is a matter of much importance to the preacher. Even one disagreeable hearer (?) has done much to hinder some preachers from doing their best in the pulpit on a single occasion. On the other hand, even a thoughtful and attentive boy may ^jreatly help a preacher. A certain jireacher tells his experience in these words: "It was a pretty fair sermon,— so the minister thought; at least, it had done good in other places. But he be- fr.vn. to suspect that for that Sunday the lilies had fallen to him in unpleasant places, when just then he noticed on the front seat, a small boy, with big "black eyes. He was sitting bolt up- rij, r ht; the black eyes were fixed on the preacher's blue eyes, and an electric ruossage sped between the two pairs of eyes. The boy did not know it, perhaps, but the minister did know it. The sermon was not a five-minutes' S€irtnonette, for children; but the boy listened just the same. In fact, the discourse was written for Father A. and jj- Brother B. and Mr. C.. and for the pillar behind the pillar; but,- as they would not, •> listen, the, minister began to preach to the boy. He warmed to his subject; he recovered his failing grip on this theme and ~on"the audience. He kept glancing into i those black eyes for encouragement, and they never failed' him, to the very end. Who was the boy with the black eyes? No one seemed to know, though the minister mafle inquires after church; but'one thing the minister did know— he helped the preacher, and, in a sense, saved the sermon. Let members of churches profit by this important lesson. Let'them studiously remember, every time that they go to church, that they are responsible, in a large degree, for the effectiveness of the pastor's preaching, in the matter.of attentive listening. While it is of great importance that the pastor should have the power of the Holy Spirit to help him, it is also very important that he should be helped by the power of appreciative hearers.—The Watchman. DON'T BE USELESS. Spread Your Daily Blessings About That All May Bo Helped. The farm-house was on fire. It was ten miles distant from the nearest town •where there was a Sre-engine. The neighbors- collected, and according to old.country usage, formed lines to the nearest well. The full buckets were passed from hand to hand to the burning' dwelling-, and the empty ones back T -ta the well. ', Deacon Payne was in the first line; Tmt the old man was absent-minded and slow. His thoughts were on his own house. What if it should take fire? So he took the pails hesitatingly, passed them on slowly and awkwardly, and finally propped one, and spilled the -water it contained. The farm-house would have turned to the ground had not some of those who stood near the deacon told him that he had better get out of the line, and leave the work to "be carried on without him. There are many Deacon Paynes in ••the world. There is always some house on fire in our sight, a case of poverty, or sickness, or misery; a burning evil which hearty and well-directed effort might put out, But there are men and women in every community and f amily who make no effort. • They have the help in their pockets, or in their brains, or their hearts, but it does not go out. The currents of sympathy and aid stop with them. There they stop with them. There they stand, cold and passive, in the crowd which each day is becoming more generous and cordial and helpful. The young reader of these lines probably thinks that they are meant only for middle-aged or gray-haired people. Let us see. Whatever your age, you have some 'f blessing given to you fresh each m'orn- '*' * Ing from God. Pass it on. Is it youth, with its strength and light-heartedness? Do not keep it for -the ball-field. Give your tired mother j- some of it.in a hearty kiss and tender \i' word, or such gentle help as you can jf .render. f Do not disdain to brighten the break- fast taole with school gossip and jokes. It will cheer your f:i ther all day to feel that his boy t-.ikes-him into his young life. Let every one who comes neat you be the happier because you are young and happy. Or, you have a sweet voice and a talent for music? .Do not keep them for display, that they may bring you applause. Sing at home, or 'in church, or beside lonely or neglected children, or wherever your music will carry comfort or peace. Or, you have studied and read much? Whom does your knowledge help? Do! you use it simply for yourself, or to make your little world brighter and better? You are, perhaps, a professed servant of Christ. You ponder long upon your sins. You read your Bible. You pray morning and night. You go to church. You are intent on saving your soul. But what help do you give to the souls of your brothers? God docs not give you the water of life to be thrown^ upon the ground. Pass it on! The man who stands in the line, but does not work, is worse than "useless. E e is a positive hindrance. —Youth's Companion. SLEEP NOT UPON ANGER. £et Not the Day Close Without Free Ifor- civeness for All. "Let not the sun go down upon your wrath." Sublime and all-suggestive duty for people: Forgiveness before, sundown. He who feels the throb of indignation is imbecile. He who can walk among the injustices of the world, inflicted upon himself and others, without flush of cheek, or flash of eye, or agitation of nature, is either in sympathy with wrong or semi-idiotic. It all depends on what you are mad at, and how long the feeling lasts, whether anger is right or wrong. Life is full ,of exasperations. Saul after David, Succoth after Gideon, Koran after Moses, the Pasquihs after Augustas, the Pharisees after Christ, and every one has had his pursuers, and we are swindled, or belied, or misrepresented, or persecuted, or in some way wronged, and the danger is that healthful indignation shall become baleful spite, and that our feelings settle down into a prolonged outpouring of temper displeasing to God and ruinous to ourselves. Nothing is so exhausting to physical health or mental faculty as a protracted indulgence of ill-humor. It racks the nervous system. It hurts the digestion. It heats the blood in brain and heart until the whole body is first overheated and then depressed. Beside that, it sours the disposition, turns one aside from his legitimate work, expends energies that ought to be better employed, and does us more harm than it does our antagonist.—Talmage, in N. Y. Observer. People We all Know. The man who talks too long in prayer- meeting. People who will not have any thing to do with any thing, unless they can "boss" the whole business. The man who gets on stilts every time he prays hi public. The preacher who is always sure the Lord wants him to go to the church that offers the largest salary. The Sunday-school teacher whenever thinks it worth while to study the lesson. The people who always come into an audience late, to attract attention and show themselves. The people who would do great things for the Lord, if they could -only dp them without costing them something. —Ram's Horn. Xot Worthy of Adversity. It is more or less easy fora Christian to think himself unworthy to receive health, wealth, prosperity, pleasure: It does not so often occur to him to think himself unworthy to receive sickness, poverty, adversity, suffering. And yet the latter class may well be regarded as the greater land of gift of God. "I have had so much that has been hard to bear these last two years, I hope I may be worth the discipline," writes an afflicted Christian mother, Buthow often do we think of ourselves as unworthy oi a painful course of discipline?—S. S. Times. , CHOICE EXTRACTS. —Men worshipped God, without knowing it, in the. home; and, while prof ess- ing to worship Him, they bribed Him. and cring-ed before Him, in the temple. —Christian Union. —The truth of religion is most powerful, not as set forth on the printed page, but as exhibited in the daily life. "Living epistles" are the ones men like best to ^read.—United Presbyterian. —Our success in all Christian work, as Christian work, is measured by our possession of spiritual power. But 'we must not depend for our success on our feeling that we have spiritual power. We- ought to feel our need of that power, and trust God to give it to us as we go on in the path of duty He has pointed out as ours.—S. S. Times. —One of the fearful features of all sin consists hi the fact that every sinful action which one does naturally disposes him to do another like action. Thus the case goes from bad to worse, at each step of the progress becoming worse, until final and absolute ruin is the result. The self-perpetuating and self-intensifying power of sin is written upon the experience of the human race.—N. Y. Independent —Have you a joy? Out with it! Set your candle upon the mantelpiece. When in boyhood, in the country, I went to prayer-meetings, we went across the corn-field in groups, and father would take a lantern and go ahead, and we would all follow in the light of that one lantern, not stumbling or losing our way. Let your light so shine before men! Don't sit during prayer-meeting with your head down in your hands as though you -had' been asleep two weeks. The homeliest part of you is the top of your head.' Let your face shine.—Talmage, in N, Y. Observer. IN WOMAN'S BEHALF. WHY HAVE WOMEN NO TIME. Several K<!n.rt6nH Oiven—Aro Not th« "VVritcr'sCon elusions Logical and Correct'? Men seldom complain of lack of time, out of business hours; but women com plain of it habitually. Whether at home or absent from it, they are ever occupied. They always have a hundred things to do; they are never able to finish, before going to heel, what they have planned in the morning'. Husbands frequently speak of this without capacity to understand it. True, swomen have far more to do than men; true, their work can never be finished. But is it true that they have no time? And if it be, is not the fault measurably theirs? As has often been said, they have all the time there is. If the days were forty-eight hours long would they have any more? Not a particle. Persons who uniformly feel and say that they have no time, are predestined never to have any. Why is it that women have no time? Chiefly because they are'without system; because they do not take advantage of odd minutes: thirdly, because they are •always trying to be polite. The fact that men act very differently may account for their usually haying'.time to do what they, wish. While women's time is liable to ceaseless interruption; while they have no Jiours, as men, still, might they not adopt some thing- like system? They generally know, when they get up in the morning, what their Occupations will be until the hour of going to bed. They should devote different periods to different duties, and adhere to them as rigidly as they can. In theory, they often do; in practice they do not. They obe3 r impulse and the convenience of the moment. They permit themselves to be turned aside from the thing in hand to some thing else; and each interruption involves thrice the loss of time that the mere interruption costs. Their duties become confused, their intentions tangled, and when the day has closed they find various things neglected which they had fully made up their mind to perform. The next day, they think they will not fail of performance; but'the same circumstances intervene, with the same result. And so it goes from week to week, from month to month, until the poor women, constantly struggling, constantly resolving, constantly failing, get very nervous, and despair of ever accomplishing what they undertake. ' They keep bravely and actively at work: but the consciousness of .regularly falling behind must ultimately effect their spirits and weaken their determination. They are inclined to attempt more than they, or any one of their nature, in their circumstances, can possibly achieve. If they would attempt half as much, and complete the half, the effect would be salutary. Nothing is much more disheartening than the memory of not doing what we had purposed. A series of such memories will, in season, weaken the' will, and thus impair capacity. Women are more courageous, morally, than we are. When we should despond and lose our hold on life by repeated failure", they retain their confidence, and still grasp their aim. They hope against hope; they are cheerful in the face of disappointment. They believe after ten or twenty years of never having had tune to do what they wish, that they will yet have all the time they crave. Beautiful faith! Sanguine women! As an example of a want of system, a woman decides to appropriate two hours of morning—from 10 to 12 o'clock—to a certain occupation. She is at it when, at 10:30, some ordinary acquaintance calls, having no right or reason to interrupt her. Does she ask to he excused, as a man would? ' By no means.' She thinks that she ought to see the acquaintance, presumably feminine, or it would be a pity to send her away after she has taken the trouble to come, etc., etc., in the typical manner of woman's over-compassion. She sees her; she consumes an hour or more of valuable time, and then that engagement must be deferred. The next day arrives, and she begins again. At 11 o'clock, a letter from a dear friend is brought in. It is delightful to read; but it demands no answer at any given date. It has, however, touched her heart; she will reply while her emotions are warm. She spends two or three hours in that way, when fifteen minutes would have sufficed (how women waste themselves in writing superfluously long-letters!) and again the special duty is deferred. These interruptions continually occur —they are of great variety, but commonly of a more or less social character —and so interfere with routine as to render it impossible. A man would not admit of any such encroachments on his business or duties, and therefore saves his time for his own use, instead of distributing it miscellaneously among his fellows, who are not at all benefited by" what is a positive loss to Mm. The serious mistake of women is in their effort to combine the social and the practical, to be attractive and efficient simultaneously. Who has ever known a woman having any relation to society to say to a visitor, "I have just five minutes to spare and then I must go?" She may say, "I am in a great hurry; I have an important engagement;" and at the end of an hour, she will be so interested in the conversation as to be unmindful of her hurry or engagement. Occasionally a woman is so energetic,' so practical, so severe as to look at her watch, and discontinue an interview abruptly, on account of .the warning it gives her. But ghe is regarded by her own sex as unconventional, eccentric, unaccountable. The majority of them would rather be behind in any .number of obligations than be guilty of behavior so disagreeable. To be. disagreeable, is, -in their eyes, the deepest of sins, the most unpardonable of blunders. Quick as women are in thought, rapid as they are in execution, they seldom know how to profit by the brief intervals between various kinds of work. They do not have : time to avail -themselves of hits of time. They are so very busy that'they can not think of, trifles. Their minds, dwell on important labors They do not \\ i^h to begin what they can not .,finish." Consequ.ep.tly, the\ lose, nearly every day, an hour or two. composed of divided minutes which they have refrained from employing- on account of division. Women, too, frequently lack executive power; they are inclined to believe that they must do every thing themselves. They talk so incessantly of having no time" that the idea grows to be a bugbear, and they come finally never to have any time. Many an exemplary husband has become to a degree alienated from his wife by hearing perpetually that she has no time. He remembers, before marriage, that she always had time to write him love letters, and he draws his deduction between then and now.— Junius IT. Browne, in Ladies ' Home Journal. —He who yives pleasure meets wit.li it; kindness is the bond of friendship and the hook of love; he who-sovvs not, reaps not.—Chicago Standard. —No one will ever be kept out o:t Heaven for not doing enough, but multitudes will fail to enter in because they (Jo not love enough.—Ram's Horn. IS SCROFULA It is that impurity in the blooii, which, accumulating in the glands of. the neck, produces unsightly Jumps or swellings; which causes painful running sores on tho arms, legs, or feet; which developes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blindness or deafness; which is the origin of pimples, cancerous growths, or the many other manifestations usually ascribed to "humors;" which, fastening upon the lungs, ca-ises consumption and death. Being tho most ancient, it is the most general of all diseases or affections, for very few persons are entirely free from it. CURED By taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, 6y the remarkable cures it has accomplished, often when other medicines have failed, has proven itself to ha a potent ami peculiar medicine for this disease. Some of these cures are really wonderful. If you suiter from scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. " My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrofulous soreneck from the time she was 22 months old till she became six years of age. Lumps formed in her neck, and one of them after growing to the size of a pigeon's egg, became a running sore for over three years. We gave her Hood's Sarsaparilla, when the lump and all indications of scrofula entirely disappeared, and now she seett.' to be a healthy child." J. S. CARLII.E, Nauright, N. J. N. B.

DAYTON, T»NN., a beautiful town of 5,000 in- nabitirls, located on the Queen »nd Crescent Route, 293 miles south of Cincinnati, has hitherto kept aloof from the excitement attending the boom of the New South; but the possibilities offered by a town already established with an inexhaustible supplv of coal, iron and timber, and with cokeing ovens,blast furnaces, factories, and hotels in operation, were too great to escape the eye of the restless capitalist, and a strong party of wealthy men from Chicago. Chattanooga and Nashville, in connection with prominent banking firms in New England, have formed a company to be known as the Corporation of Dayton, for the sale of town lots, the establishmcn' of industrial enterprises, etc. It is an assured fact that within six months Dayton will have another railroad from the bouth-east, which will make it an important junction and transfer point for nearly one-fifth of the freight and passenger traffic between tho Great North-west and the South-east. In addition tn this it is located on the C^. and C.. one of the largest and most irrlcortant of the Southern Trunk Lines. It is in the" midst of the fertile and beautiful Tennessee Valley; has already an established reputation as, a prosperous and s. e manufacturing -town and some additional strength as a httilth resort. The strongest firm at present located there Is the Dayton Coal &Irok Co..an English Corporation, who have built a standard gauge railroad to their mines, and o\vn 20.1100 acres of good coal and iron and timber land.'just West of and adjoimnj^Dayton. It is 'propose.d to have a Land Sale December Srd, 4th and 5th, and special trains will be run from New England nlso 1'rom the important cities of the North and North-west, which will undoubtedly be a great success, as the plan is to discourage extravagant prices and put the property in tht hands of'the people atapnce where they can ;i/T<) it to hold and improve it. i-.xcursion tickets, Cincinnati to Dayton and return, will be sold by agents QUEEN AND CRESCENT KOUTK and connecting lines North.
