Peaches are a tonic, an aperient, a food and a drink combined: or, to put it briefly, they are meat and medicine. A good' meal may be made on cut peaches, with sugar and cream, bread and butter. After a meal of this variety a person will feel more like attending to the duties of the afternoon, than if he or she indulged in heavy foods. Peaches are good before breakfast and after dinner; they are good for the digestion, good for the blood and good for the complexion. Some people eat them without cream ^or sugar and with good results. The fruit is so rich in sugar and acid that it preserves its llavor a long while, but to get the full benefit it should be eaten as soon as it is cut. Kedness of the nose, due to congestion, intlaincd complexion, scrofulous and bilious tendencies are said to bo materially iniluenced by a liberal consumption of this luscious fruit.

Boil the asparagus in plenty of salted Water in an iintiiined copper basin* plunging them into the liquid. Covet this vessel and let it cook slowly. As soon as they are done drain them on a sieve, and afterward untie the bunches on a cloth and dress them symmetrically in a pyramid on a folded napkin; carefully reserve the handsomest ones for the top. Send to the table at the same time a good Mollandaise sauce or else a vinaigrette sattce. Legend of tlic Ualsy. There is a pretty legend connected i« ith the daisy, which is an Old World flower Americanized. When the early Christians of .Britain were persecuted and put to death St. Union persuaded his sister, St. Olle, to flee with her maiden companions. After the persecution ceased the bishop searched fruitlessly for his sister until he noticed that there sprung up in his pathway little tufts of flowers with golden hearts and starry rays of white.

Talmage, who is now touring in Australian cities, has chosen as the attbieet for to-day's sermon through the pi-ess: Worth Living," the text being taken from Lamentations ft : 31', •'Wherefore doth alivingniart complain?" If we leave to the evolutionists to guess where we came from and to the theologians to prophecy where we are going to, we still have left for consideration the important fact that We are here. There may be some doubt about where the river rises and some doubt where the river empties, but there can be no doubt about the fact that we are sailing oh it. So 1 am not surprised that everybody asks the question, "Is life worth living?" Solomon in his unhappy moments says it is not, "Vanity," "vexation of spirit," "no good," are his estimate. The fact is that Solomon was at one time a polyearnist and that soured his disposition. One wife makes a man happy; more than one makes him wretched. But Solomon was converted from polygamy to monogamy, and the last words he ever wrote, as far as we can read them, were the words "mountains of spices." But Jeremiah says in my text life is worth living. In a book supposed to be doleful, and lugubrious, and sepulchral, and ~«+-:+i<.>i "T.ninf.iiK'it.ions.'' he plainly Was the Companion of I.ainartlne. There died recently in Paris a woman whose sweet companionship consoled and cheered the declining years of Lamartine. Mile, de Cessia was one of the niany women who are content to live for a few and who never seek notoriety. She was the niece of the poet, a daughter of his sister, and some time after he became a widower, when he was the prey of financial difficulties of the most trying' kind, she took up her abode with him and remained to the last his most faithful adviser, companion and nurse. Of noble family on the paternal as well as the maternal side, she solicited and obtained the dignity of chanoinesse, which also confers the title of Corn- tesse. and it was as Comtesse de Lamartine that she ruled her uncle's household, acting the part of hostess to the numerous friends and admirer whom Lamartine was always pleased to gather around him. Many of those of a younger generation who were admitted to the privacy of the aged poet remember with gratitude the warm welcome they received from his niece —The Queen. ji Oalwty Scotch Ureas.

It is said that Lady Carlisle is training an entire staff of women to take charge of the extensive grounds of her fine York estate. She claims that women, by right of their superior taste and judgment in everything pertaining to' floriculture, should be, and are, better adapted to the lighter work of garden making than are men, and with the tendency of the age, which is to give women the first chance at everything, she is trying her experiment on a wholesale scale.—New Mail and Express.

' — entitled "Lamentations," he plainly intimates that the blessing of merely living is so great and grand a blessing that though a man have piled on him all misfortxincs and disasters he has no right to complain. The author of my text cries out in startling intonation to all lands and to all centuries, "Wherefore does a living man complain?" A diversity of opinion in our time as well as in olden time, Here is a young man of light,hair, and blue eyes, and sound digestion, and generous salary, and happily affianced, and on the way to become, a partner in a commercial firm of which he is an important clerk. Ask him whether life is worth living. He will laugh in your face and say: "Yes, yes,-yes!" Here is a man who has come to the forties. He is at the tip-top of the hill of life. Every step has been a stumble and a bruise. The people he trusted have turned out deserters, and the money he has honestly made he has been cheated out of. His nerves are out of tune. He has poor appetite, and all the food he does eat does not assimilate. Forty miles climbing up'the hill of life have been to him like climbing the Matterhorn, and there are forty miles yet to go down, and descent is always more dangeroxis than ascent. Ask him whether life is worth living, and he will drawl out in shivering and lugubrious and appalling negative, "No, no, no!" How are we to decide this matter righteously and intelligently? You will find the same man vacillating, oscillating in hio opinion from Rejection to exuberance, and if lie be very mercurial in his temperament it will depend very much upon which way the wind blows. If the wind blow from the northwest and you ask him, he will say, "Yes;" and if it blow from the northeast and you ask him, he will say, "No." How are we then to get the question righteously answered? Suppose we call all nations together in a great convention on eastern or western he misphero, and let all those who are in the affirmative say "Aye" and all those who are in the negative say "No." While there would be hundreds of thousands who would answer in the affirmative, there would be .'more millions who would answer in the negative, and because of the greater number who have sorrow and misfortune and trouble the "Noes" would have it. The answer I shall give will be different from either, and it will commend itself to all who hear me this day as the right answer. If you ask me "Is life worth living?" I answer, it all depends upon the kind of life you live, In the first place, I remark, that a life of mere money getting is always a failure, because you will never get as much as you want. The poorest people in this country are the richest, and next to them those who are halt as rich. There is not a scissors grinder on the streets of New York 01 'Brooklyn who is so anxious tc- rnakt money as these men who have piled up fortunes year after year in store houses, in government securities, tenement houses, in whole pity blocks. You ought to see them jump when they beav the fire bell ring. You ought to see them in their excitemen when some bank explodes, You ough to see 'the}.? agitation when, there is proposed a reformation in the tariff- Their nerves tremble like hftVP' strings, but no music in the vibration- They read the reports from Wail ift it, too many perdition! IB it. they build their castles, and they open their picttft-e #allerie&, and they summon prlma donnas, and they offer every inducement for happine&s to coma and live there, but happiness will tiot come. They send footmanned and postil- Honed equipage to bring her; she Will not i-ide to their door. They setid princely escort; she will not take their arm. They make ' their gateways triumphal arches; she Will hot ride under theni. They set a golden throne before a goldefl plate; fehe turtis away from the banquet. They call to her from upholstered balcony; she will not listen. Mark you, this is the failure of those Who have had large ac" cumulation. And then you must take into consul* eratioii tha t the Vast majority of those who make the dominant idea of life money-getting fall far short of affluence. It is estimated that only about two out of a hundred business men have anything worthy the name of success. A man who spends his life with the one dominant idea of financial accumulation spends a life not worth living. So the idea of worldly approval. If that be dominant in a man's life he is miserable. The two most unfortunate men in this country for the six months of next Presidential, campaign will be the two men nominated for the Presidency. The reservoirs of abuse, and diatribe, and malediction will gradually fill up, gallon above gallon, hogshead above hogshead, and about autumn these two reservoirs will be brimming full, and a hose will be attached to each one, and it will play away on these nominees, and they will have to stand it, and take the abuse, and the falsehood, and the caricature, and the anathema, and the caterwauling, and the.filth, and they will be rolled in it and rolled over and over in it until they are choked, and submerged, and strangulated, and at every sign of returning consciousness they will be barked at by all the hounds of political parties from ocean to ocean. ' And yet, there are a hundred men to-day struggling for that privilege, and there are thousands of men who are helping them in the struggle. Now, that is not a life worth living. You can- get slandered and abused cheaper than that! Take it on a smaller scale. Do not be so ambitious to have a whole reservoir rolled over on you. But what you see in t the matter of high political preferment you see in i every community in the struggle for ' what is called social position. Tens of thousands of people trying to get into that realm, and they are under terrific tension. What is social position? It is a difficult thing to de• tine, biit we all know Good morals and intelligence are not necessary, but wealth, or the show of wealth, is absolutely indispensable. There are men to-day as notorious for their libertinism as the night is famoxxs for its darkness who move in what is oi lied high social position. There are hundreds of out-and-out rakes in American society whose names are unltersity, stafldS 1* ifintientiaV a— ,- righteousne-ss, judgment &M werattce, and thousands during ministry fits blessed, the other Whd got the collegiate education into thfe law, and thence »»*<>»' ti*e halls, and aftef tt while foe Wands listening SehateS as he ------a plea for the dowfitfodden and th« outcast. One of the younger boys^e- comes a mei-chant, staftitig at the foot of the ladder, but climbing on up until his success and his philanthropies are recognised all over the land. The other son stays at home because he prefers fat-ming life, and then he thinks he Will be able to take care of father and mother when they get old.

So that every time Christ thought of hef he said, as of old, "The same is my sister and mother." The other daughter has a bright home of her own, and in the afternoon or the forenoon, When she has been devoted to her household, she goes forth to hunt up the sick and to encourage the discouraged, leaVine smiles and benediction all along the Hut one day there start five-telegrams from the village for these five absent ones, saying: "Come, mother is dangerously ill." But before they can be ready to start they receive an* other telegram,, saying: ' Come, mother is dead." The old neighbors gather in the old farm house to do the last offices of respect. But as that farming son, and the clergyman, and the senator, and the merchant; and the two daughters stand by the casket of the dead mother taking the last look, or lifting their little children to see once more the face of dear old grandma, I want to ask that around the casket one question: you' really think her life was worth living?" A life for God, a life for others, a life of usefulness, a useful life, a Christian life is always worth living. Neither would I have hard work to persuade you that Grace Darling lived a life worth living—the heroine of the lifeboat. You are not wondering that, the duchess of Northumberland came to see her and that people of all lands asked for her lighthouse, and that the proprietor of the Adelphi theater in 'Philadelphia .offered her $100 a night just to sit in the lifeboat while some shipwreck scene was being enacted. - . But I know the thoughts m the minds of hundreds who read this. You say: "While I know all these lived lives worth living, I don't think my life amounts to .much."
