While the disciples are congratulating each other * trfi their' 1 marine escape, ; out from a <W,rk, deep cavern on, the Oadarcne Itills therb"is" sortl&tliitig'iswiftly and terribly advancing. Is it an uppari- tidn? Js it a nianV Is it a wild beast? ,' It is a maniac who has broken away » Jffom his keepers, perhaps a few rags •on, his person, and fi-agrnents of stout shackles which he has wrenched off in terrific paroxysm, With wild yell and bleeding wounds of his own laceration, lie flies down tho hill. • Mack to the boats, ye ftehermeni and put out to sea, and escape assassination. But Christ stands his ground; so •do the disciples; and as this flying fury, with gnashing teeth and uplifted Ants, dashes at Christ, Christ says, "Hands oCK Down at my feet, thou ' poor sufferer," and the demoniac drops JiarmlcES, exhausted, worshipful. "Awny, ye devils!" commanded Christ, and the L', 000 fiends which had been tormenting the .-poor man are transferred to the 2,000 swine which goto *ea with their'accursed cargo. The restored demoniac sits down at •Christ's feet and wants to stay there. <Jhrist says to him practically, "Do not *top; you have a mission to execute; •wash oil the filth and the wounds in the sea: .smooth your disheveled locks; put on decent apparel and go straight .to your desolated, home, and tell your wife r and children that you will no inorc affrigfjit^thcm, and , more do . tiiem harm; that you arc restored to .reason, and that 1, the Omnipotent •ikm of God, am entitled hereafter to •the worship of your entire household 'Keturn to thine own house, and show Jhow great things Ood hath done unto -tfaee." Yes, the house, the home is the first •place where our religious gratitude •ought to be demonstrated. In tho •outside world we msiyseem to Imve .religion svhen we have it not; but the home "tests whether-'.our religion is .genuine or a shurn. What makes a .luippy home? Well, one would say a house with .great wide halls, and antlered deer- lioads, and pai'lors with sculpture and "bric-a-brac, and dining hall with easy •chair and plenty of light and cngrav- -ing's of game on the wall, and sleeping apartments commodious and ".adorned. No. In siich a plnce as tluit, gigantic wretchedness has some"tunes dwelt, while some, of you look back to yoxir father's house, where -they rea'd \tlieir-Bible by tho light of a tallow candle. There were no carpets •on/thc floor save those made from tho orags which your mother cut night by night, you helping wind them into :i •ball, and then sent-to the weaver who brought them to shape under his slow -shuttle. Not a luxury in all the house. But you can not think of it this morning withoiit tearful and .grateful emotion. You and I have found out that it is not rich tapestry, •or gorgeous architecture, or rare art that makes a happy home. The six wise men of Greece gave pro- 'serjptipns for a happy home. Solon says a happy home is a, place where ii <tnan's estate was gotten without injustice, kept without disquietude, and •«pent without repentance. Chilo says that a happy home is the place where a man rules as a monarch of a kingdom. Bias says that a happy home is a place •where a man does voluntarily what by .Jaw he is compelled to do abroad. But you and I, under u grander light, give .a-bettor prescription; a happy home is a, place where the kindness ef the •Gospel of the Son of Uod has full •swing. \\'hile.I speak this morning there js knocking at your front door, if lie be Tiot -already admitted, one whose loclfs are wet with the dews of the night, -whoHvould tako-your children into his arms, and would throw iapon your nursery, and your sleeping apartments, and your drawing-room, and your entire house a blessing, that will make yon rich while you live, and be an in* hepitance to your children ftfter you haye done tUe last day's work for their support, and made for then* the last prayer. Jt is the illustrious one who ^sajd t'o the man of my text, "Beturn to thine own hou&e, and show how great things God hath done unto Now, 'in the firht place, we religion in our domestic duties, gvery housekeeper needs groat grace.

The rod which lit other homes may be the first means used, in yours will be the last. There will be no harsh epithets — "yoU knavd, you villain, you scoundrel, I'll thrash the life out of you, you s,fe the worst child 1 ever knew." All that kind of chastisement makes thieves, pickpockets, murderers and the outlaws of society. That parent who in ftnger strikes his child across the head, deserves the penitentiary. And yet this work of discipline must bo attended to. God's grace can direct us. Alas for those who come to tho Work with fierce passion and recklessness of consequences. Between severity and lasativeness there is no choice. Both ruinous and both destructive. But ther,,e is a healthful medium which the'graco of God Will show to us. Then We needvtheirdligion of Christ to help us in setting a good example. Covvper said of the oak: "Time was when settled on thy loaf a fly could shake thee to the root. Time has been when tempest could not." In other words,your children are very impressible just now. They are alert; they are gathering impressions you have no idea of. Have you not been surprised sometimesi months or years after some conversation, which you supposed \yas too profound or intricate for them to understand—some question of the child demonstrated the fact that he knew all about it? , ' ' Your children are apt to think that what you do is right. They have no ideal of truth or righteousness but yourself. Things which you do knowing at the time to be wrong, they take to .be right.. They reason this way: "leather' always does right Father did this. Theiefore, this is right." That is good logic, but bad premises. No one ever gets over having had a bad example set him. • Your conduct more than your teaching makes impression. Your laugh, your frown, your dress, your walk, your greetings, your goodbys, your comings, your goings, your habits at the table, the toues of your voice, are making an impression which will last a million' years aft'er ' you ' are" 1 dead," and' the sun will be extinguished, and the mountains will crumble', and the world will die, and eternity will roll on in perpetual cycles, but there will be no diminution of the force of your conduct upon the young eyes that saw it or tho young ears that heard it Now I would not have by this the idea given to you that you must be iu cold reserve in tho presence of your children. You are not emperor; you are companjon with them. As far as you can, you must walk with them, skate with them, fly kite with them, play ball with them, show them you arc interested in all that interests them. Spensippus, the nephew and successor of Plato iu tho academy,had pictures of joy and gladness hung all around tho Sichool-room. . You must not give your children the impression that when they come to yon''they arc playful ripples striking against a rock. You must have them understand that you were a boy once yourself, that you know a boy's hilarities, a boy's temptations, a boy's ambition—yea, that you arc a boy yet. Ypu maj' deceive thorn and try to give them the idea that you are some distant supernatural effulgence and you may shove them off by your rigorous behavior, but tho time will come when they will find out tho deception and they will have for you utter.contempt. Aristocle said that a boy should begin to study at J7 years of age; before that his- time should be given to recreation. 1 can not adopt that theory, But (this suggests a truth in the right direction. Childhood is too brief, and wo have not enough sympathy with its sportfulness. We want divine grace to help us in the adjustment of all these matters. Besides that, how are your children ever to become Christians if you yourself arc not a Christian? I have noticed that however worldly and sinful parents may be, they want their children good. When young people- havo presented themselves for admission into our membership I have said to them, "Are your father and mother willing you shall come?" and they have said, "Oh! yes; they are delighted to have us come; they have not been in church for ten or fifteen years, but they will be here next Sabbath to see me bap- ti/.ed," I have uotioed that parents, however worldly, want their children good. So it was demonstrated in a police court in Canada., where a. mother, her little child in her arms—sat by a table on which her own handcuffs lay, and the little babe took up tlie handcuffs and played with them, and had great glee, She know not the sorrow of the hour. And then when, the mother was sent to prison, the mother cried out, "Oh! God, let not this babe go into the jail. Is there not some mother here who will take this child? It is good enough for heaven. It is pure. I am bad- I am wicked. Is there not some one who will take this child? I can not have it tainted with the prison." Then a brazen, creature rushed up and ssjid, ''Yes, I'll take the child." "No, '»o," said the mother, "not you, pot you. Is there not some good mother here who will take this child?" And then when the officer of the Jayv ia mercy and pity tools the child to caryy it away to find a home far it, the mother kissed it loyingly good-by, and said, -'Good-by, my darliog; it is better you sh QU 'd Be y er gee me again." However worldly and sjnful People are, they want their child res thettt to chflfeli? T^Jftfc !fi ftll .vefy "Wfell, 'but of lltttd^fihafrf&ttlt Unless y"otl dd it tflth the gV&t&'ol &dd In you? he'firt. Do- yoii H6t fekltee tfiat y.6Uf children are started fdf AM they oa the fight foad"? little form's that jiro flSw^o bright and beatitlful, when tliey have scat* tefed in the dust there vvlli be an ini-> mortal spirit living on in ft mighty theater of acttott, and your fatthftil- ness ot your neglect ad'W is deciding that destiny. There is contention already anltfng ministering spirits' of 'salvation and fallen angqls as to who shall have" tho mastery of that immortal spirit. Your children are soon going out in tho World. Tho temptations of life Will rush upon them. The most rigid reso' lution will betid in the blast of evil. What wilt be the result? It will require all thd restraints of the gospel, all the strength of a father's prayer, all the influence of a Christian mother's example, to keep them. You say it is too early to bring them. Too early to bring them to God? Do you know how early children were taken-to the sincient^assover? The rule'was just'as'soon as''tliey'''ctJuid take hold of the father's hand arid walk up Mount Moriah they should bo taken to the Passover. Your children are not too young to come to God. While you sit here and think of them perhaps their forms now so bright and beautiful vanish from you, and their disembodied spirit rises, and you, see it after the life of virtue or crime is past and the judgment is gone and eternity is here. A Christian minister said that in tho first year of his pastorate he. tried to persuade a young mechanic of tho importance of family worship. Some time passed, and the mechanic came to tho pastor's study and said: "Do you remember that girl? That was my own child; she died this morning' very suddenly; she has gone to God, I havo no doubt, but if so, she has told him what I tell you now; that child never heard a prayer in her father's house— never heard a prayer from her father's lips. Oh! if I only had her back again one day to do my duty!" It will be a tremendous thing at the last day if some one shall say of us, "I never heard my father pray; I never heard my mother pray." Again I remark, we want religion in all our home sorrowa There are ten thousand;que§tjonp.^hatv come Up ;.in' the best regulated household that must 1 be settled. Perhaps the father has one favorite in the family, the mother another favorite in the family, and there are many questions that need delicate treatment. Tyranny and arbitrary decision have no place in a household. If the parents love God, there will be a spirit of self-sacrifice, and a spirit of forgiveness, and a kindness which will throw its charm over the entire household. Christ will come into that "household and will say, "Husbands, love 5 f our wives and be not bitter against them; wives, see that you reverence your husbands; children, obey your parents in the Lord; servants, be obedient, .to your masters," and the family will be Like a garden on a summer morning— the grass-plot, and the flowers, and tho vines, and tho arch o£ honeysuckle standing in the sunlight glittering with dew. But then there will be sorrows that will come to the household. There are but few families that escape the stroke of financial misfortune. Financial misfortune cornes to a house where there is no religion. They kick against divine allotments; they curse God for tho incoming calamity, they withdraw from the world becaxisc they ;an not hold as high a position in society as they once did, and they fret, and they scowl, and they sorrow, and they die, During the past few years there havo been tens of thousands of men destroyed by their financial distresses. When a queen died, her three sons brought an offering to the grave. One won brought gold, another brought silver, but tho third son came and stood over the grave and opened one of his veins and let the blood drop upon his mother's tomb, and all who saw it said it was tho greatest demonstration of affection. My friends, what is the grandest gift wo can bring to the sepulchers of a Cluistian ances- ;ry? It is a life all consecrated to the God who made us and the Christ who redeemed us. I can not but believe that there are hundreds of parents in this house who have resolved to do their whole duty, and that at this moment they are passing into a better life; and laving seen the grace of the gospel in ;his place to-day, you aro now fully ready to return to your own house, and show what great things God has done unto you. Though parents may in covenant; ba> And have their heaven in view; They are not bappy till they sea Their children bappy too. May the Lord God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers be our God and the God of our children forever. Nothing Lost by Jlelug 1'ollto- A jaguar in one's path would seem to be 'as undesirable a guest as a lion, and it is bard to Jinow how to treat it, A story is told ol a South American Indian finding bhnsplf {suddenly confronted with a fine spepiinen, of a jaguar that stood right in his way only a few feet ahead. There was littlu \lm.o tp think over the situation, wd it would probably have beea certain death tP turn and flee. With » happy notion, therefore, the man. advanced, and, taking off his big broad-brimmed hat, made the animal a low bow and bade it "Good morning 1 ."

Tho seasons are so varied, the soils so •different that Wo can lay down no deflaito ruto that must bo strictly adhered to. It must bo understood by your roadora that 1 am only giving my manner of doing this, after years of experimenting atod etudy, during which I have gained tho appellation of . a successful berry grower, writes G. W. Williams in the Journal af Agriculture. I havo learned much more by tho failures I havo mado than by tho success ob* tained. .If.anyone launches-out into theWdr.i'y.';bu'sitio'ss-. thinking 'he has : the full assurance that he is not going to mako any failures he will bo sadly disappointod, for ' wo frequently meet with failures under tho most flattering prospects and care. After j'oars of experience and association with them, studying their habits and investigating their peculiarities, wo gain a knowledge that wo may, with a reasonable degree of assurance, expect a crop. Wo must got varieties suitable to our soil, or by artificial moans make the soil, as near as possible, suitable to tho variety, and got them at tho proper time. I prefer to sot just before tho bloom bud opens, always pinching it out clear back to the loaf •bud. If tho bloom is loft on, the plant will almost exhaust itself trying to produce the berry, and when tho berry has ripenad—which it may do in an imperfect manner— the plant will bo very puny and will tako tho best part of tho season to regain lost Vitality. After having set in rows, four feet apart and about two feet for an average in tho row, if the ground is nearly' level and not inclined to drain well -I run one furrow with a single shovel plow iu center between tho rows; this draws the excess of .water from the plants. . I oulti- 'viite 1 !** about the same v as any- other hoed crop. As soon as tho grass and weeds begin to appear, or boforo, if there has boon no hard rains to "pack" tho soil, I go twice in a row with a one-horso harrow. This can be mado by any farmer at small expense who has a do'/,on old harrow tooth. Mako it in the form of an A, putting handles to it so it can be guided, and hitched to the pointed ond—following with a hoe. merelywbrkingv tho • surface; but if thoro has been heavy rains, I use a five-tooth cultivator and lot it down deep to loosen the ground—oven deeper than tho roots of tho plants— following with a narrow-bladod hoe or a four-tong potato hoe (not potato fork) and loosen up the soil between tho plants. This I do every ton days or .two weeks until late summer or early fall,.being governed as to deep or shallow cultivation by the amount of rain, always leaving my ground in the fall as nearly lovol as possible. When the runners start out koop them turned longways tho rows. This can be done by getting up close to tho plants with the harrow or cultivator. When tho runners havo mot between the hills begin to "shy" off a little from the plants giving thorn a wider borth that they may spread sideways. By tho time tho plant making season is over you should have a matted vow ton or twelve inches wide. Novor allow thorn to got over twelve inches wide. I find that cutting off runnovs does not pay and I have discarded the practice except where l want to raise a fow extra largo berries for exhibition, tho thinner the vinos tho larger the borrios, tho thicker the vines, if the rows aro not too wide, tho more boxes por acre but the smaller tho berries. This system of cultivation is given whero space is limited as is tho case on nearly all farms (P). Mr. Editor, did you ever notice a farmer with acres and acres of good land covered with hazel brush, sumach or wild grass and woods, how stingy he was to set apart an aore or two to tho raising of berries, and oven "that after he has tasted tho good gifts from his neighbor's berry patch?" When land is not limited, a nice and easy way to cultivate is in what is known as the hill system. To do this we set the plants four by throe feet apart and cultivate both ways with the harrow and, cultivator. This saves yjuoh time and hoeing. To keep them in hiUs, take a piece of steel one and o, half pr two inches wide—an old pieco of buggy spring is the very thing—about two feet long. Get the blacksmith to draw one edge out like a kuife, making it good and sharp, bend . it in a circle welding tho ends together, drill a hole on either side opposite one another and rivet to those holes each end of a three-fourth rod . previously beat like a bucket bail, only it must stand up higher. JJraw three or four inches of the rod, together in t£p caater, weld and sharpen U k e the shank on a pitchfork. Hpro a hole in the end of a three-foot stick and drive on over the shank same as a fork handle, and your "machine" i8 ready for uso. When the run- Hers begin to set plants lay Jihera back close to tho plant until you get about half a dozen plants nestled around the parent plant. Jjovy as they begiq to seijd oijt new ymmei>e m aU directions, gp over the, fiehj 'aijd get your, clipper cwey - ' • }t '"- f - 19 necessary* and by fall you will have'* beautifnUround, JliH, eight inches in dlatnetor. Of course you catt mako your clipper afty size desired. Let We repeat, that Whete Irthd is not so much of aft object, the hill 'system gives more berfies and larger berrioa for tho amount o! labor bestowed than uhdor tho matted row system, but if room is limited, the Jatter system Will yield most for tho>amount of room occupied. Nevef allow tho plants to form a solid mat all over tho ground. Hilling fottUoe*. The question has recently come up relative to the propriety of hilling potatoes during the early period of their growth, and time European writers have recommended the practice! stating as a reason that it protects tho tubers from the sun^s rays as in their growth they aro crowded upwards. There is do doubt that hilling will protect them from the sunlight when the planting is quite shallow, so that tho forming tubers must necessarily have a thin layer of earth above them. But if they ; are planted deep enough, or four 01' five^ffich'es, la" doop, mallow soil, this practice in not necessary, and the now potatoes will be formed deep enough to be out of the reach of tho sun's rays. In the experiments which we havo made in past years, with a depth'of only throe Inches in one portion of the field and five inches in another, and in a deep, well pulverized soil, the crop in the deep planted part was between ten and twenty per cent greater than the shallow portion. , Other planters within our knowledge have made similar trials, with like results. War the Cabbugo Worm. A. S. 1'uller's remedy for the cabbage worm is spraying the plants with coal tar water of tho right strength, and prepared in the following manner: Aboiit two quarts of coal tar are put in an open vessel, which is then set in the bottom of a barrel, and the barrel is then filled with water. In two or three days the water becomes impregnated with the peculiar odor of the tar. The water is then sprayed or sprinkled abundantly with a watering pot over the cabbages, and it penetrates every part, the odor di'iving 1 away or destroying the worms. The water evaporates and carries away the odor of the tar. from -the/ cabbages. • /.I.'he same'successtvely used. It is said to be quite efficient. Farm Notes. More milk and butter is ruined by caves and cellars than any other one cause. It is a good plan to mix the ' meal for the fowls with boiling- water, for this partially cooks it and makes the food better. Pay good wages to the man'whom you expect to milk , your 'cows, if ho is worth it, and if he is not do not hire him at all. Tho sheep that shears an unprofitable fleece should bo weeded out. Every flock needs weeding out in tho spring as well as the fall. It is considered by many that over feeding fowls on corn is tho cause of apoplexy. When chickens fall off the voost at night they are generally affected with this disease. By testing tho quality of tho heifer's milk you can toll whether to keep her in the dairy. If tho quality is poor, discsu'd her. for age does not improve tho quality as it does tho quantity. ,.' Clip tho wing d* a newly bought queen, at least enough to mark her, says Gleanings; then if she disappears and another takes her place by any means, you'll not blame the queen-dealer for cheating you. Spread out a little from the humdrum course of agriculture. Grow more fruit. Have a, bettor garden. Give more attention to the dairy. Consider tho chickens a source of profit. Make everything pay that can bo mado to pay. Found His — fielln. Wordlelgb, . -Where'd'you get Home Hints. Never put tea loaves on a light- colored carpet; they will surely leave a stain.
