COURTESY OF BANCROFT LIBRARY,

A Bit of Married Experience'.
xV writer in the Christian. Union says:
"I married my wife about thirty-live
years ago. The ceremony was performed
about seveu o'clock in the morning. Be
fore retiiing that evening we had a talk
witli each other, an 1 the result has sweet-
hnu j eted our entire lives. Ve agreed with
Thciach other that each should be
natchful and careful never, by word or
act, to hint the feelings of the other. We
were both voting, both hot-tempered,
both positive in our likes and dislike,
ami both somewhat exr.ctirg and inflexi
blejust the material for a life of conju
gal warfare. Well, for a few years we
found it hard woik to always live by our
agreement. Occasionally (not often) a
word -r l ak woukl slip off the tongue
or faee before it could ho caught or sup-piv-s-e:
i; but we never allowed the sun to
go down upon our wrath. Before retir
ing at night, on such occasions, there
were always confessions and forgiveness,
and the culprit would bee me menii care
ful in the future. Our tempers and dis
positions became gradually more and
more congenial: s that cfter a few years
;. we came to !-o one in reeluy, as the mar
ital CMi'tii' ii r le.d pror.ounced us nomi
nally. In thinking back we find that for
iii' ie than twenty years our little agree
ment f as been unbroken, and there has
been no occasion for confession -or for
giveness. In business we have had our
adversity and prosperity, failure and suc
cest:. We have brought up a family of
chibh f n ami now' have our gi-;.n iehil
dren a'.iout us, and we are simple chough
to brdie-ve that w have better children
and iiiMpdebildren ' because i f our little
agreement. Under such a' contract, re
lijjiousiy kept, no ill-natured children
will be reared, and no boys will find the
streets and bar-room more pleasant than
home.' To' 'make ag md wife or husband
requires the cd-uperaiion of both."

Mr. Wffl. T. Robinson ijsed to relate an
amusing anecdote of one of the early Ilob
in3ons, who, it appears, had joined the
Quaker Meeting. Gov. -Brenton hid
placed him on the farm belonging to turn
situated on the .south end of the Island j
adjacent to Benton's Point, and stocked
the same largely with sheep. In a violent
snow-storm such as used to prevail more
frequently than of late in New England j
IthouuU I have kr.own.everal in iay day
nearly equally destructive), these sheep
haviiiir been le.'t in aa exposed position,
were driven by the incieiuf nt tempest of
wind and sleet off t'ne rocks into the sea,
where they perished. When liobiusoti
communicated the less of the sheep to
Brenton, the governor, being a man ot
hasty temper, flew into a to.eriug
ra:.fe. with his tenant, and reproached him
in unmeasured terms for the loss of- fhe
sheep through, as he charged, gross neg-
lect. To ait theabu-e heaped upon himf
liobinson answered not a word, wbicil
submissi veness seemed only to increase
Brenton' ire, who, at last, in his frenzy,
declared that Robinson should pay him
for his lost sheep, and bid hini choose a
man to arbitrate their value,whiie he
chose another, which Brenton did, or. his
pat t, instautei . It was now Robinson's
turn to choose his innn. "Friend Bren
ton," said lie, "I kuow of no one whom I
should prefer to trust my interest with
than thou! I think I will choose thee
for my man!" This was too much for
the governor, who, after bursting into an
uproarou fit of laughter, told his un
manageable tenant, to go back to the farm
and ne would venture to trust one more
flock of Ids sheep in his care. .
A' 'Great Evil!

crime iu mothers, teachers, ministers of-

this inability. Thousands of good-hearted
young girls are sat-ritlced- every year, when

out of doors; to build up .their health; to
cultivate more simple tastes iu dress, and
more moderation in pleasure ; study do

m.:r."TL Japanese Lotus.
In summer the lotus flowers grew and
bloomed, slowly rising from the long
rants "in the ooze, unfolding their first
emerging tips iato glorious concave
shields of g"reen two , feet in , diameter
corded beneath like the veins of agladia
tor, autl holding on their bosses translu
ceut pebbles of dew. Then rose the
closed balls, like a clasped haud that
trembled with the trembling water, giv
ing no sign tf the beauty -within the
mighty tiower iu its bosom. Then, as
the sunshine of summer fell usiaat the
cool water, the' ball, tenderly and shyly,
as li utraut. u snouted dav by oy until
the spleaeiid revelation of the lotus was
complete. - -Massive shied , and glorious
flower made a picture of unearthly loveli

the lotus-llower is the emblem of eternal

"The lotus spring fro. a the
mud" is ever the answer of the A-iaue to
him who teaches that the hum ui heart i

calyx of the lotus is a tri-nle whose
base is a circle, symbols of spirit and
form, of eternity and trinity. In Nir
vana Buddha sits on a lotus-dower. As
the mortal body of the believer ap
proaches the cremation house, that the
borrowed elements of his body may be
liberated from their fleshly prison and
returned to their primordial earth and
air, a stone carved to represent a lotus
llower receives the bier. To the Badd

To Kill Vermis ox Fowls. A cor

that the only reliable meaus of lidding
the hen-roost and pigeon loft of vermin is
a 'preparation of sulphur and carbotc,
technically known as the sulphurct of

like a charm. It kills the insects which
prey upon pigeons and fowls, without
irfjuringthe birds. A bottle containing
the solution will last several days, aud
the costof.it is small. Put two ounces
of the sutphuret of carbon in a bottle
