The man who undertakes to
live two lives will find' that lie is
living hut one, and that one is a
life of deception. Causes will he
true to their effects. That which
you sow 3-011 will reap). If 3-011
live to the flesh, to the passions,
to the corrupt inclinations, 5 0U
may depend upon it .tliat the fruit,
whicli is in store for 3'on, will ho
that which belongs to these things.
Tliero can be no doubt as to what
\-oui- harvest will ho.' If you
think that, after your day’s busi
ness is done, 3-011 can shut the
blinds and cai-r3- 011 3-.our orgies
ill secret with 3'our evil conipaii-
ions ; if 3-ou think 3-0U can serve
the devil h3- night, and tin ri go
forth and look like a sweet- and
virtuous 3-oung- ni-aii that goes in
tlie best societ3-, and does not
drink, nor gamble, nor commit
any vice, then tlio deVil has his
lialter about 3-our neck, and he
leads 3-OU, the stupidest fool of
all the crowd. Yon deceive no
body but 3'oiirsolf. 'riiore is an
e.vpresssou in the 03-6 that tells
stories. Passions stain clcar
throngh. A man might as well
expect to take nitrate of silver—
whoso natui-e is to turn him to a
le-ad color—and not have the
doctor know it, as to expect tliat
he can form evil habits and
'pui-sne niiscliievons courses, and
mot have it known. It does not
liiecd a ahei-itf to search out and
reveal tlio kind of life that 3-011
are living. Ever3- law of God in
iiatuve is mi officer after 3-011. It
does not require a court, judge 01-
jiir3' to tr3’ and condemn 3011.
All nature is a court room, and
01-61-3- jn-inci|>le thereof is a part
of that court, which tries and
condemns 3-011. Do not think
that there can be-sucli. a mon
strous mis-adjustment of affairs
a-i that 3-011 can do the work of
tlie devil and have tho i-eiuiiiiei-
tioii of an angel.

. Peddlers as a class have a rep
utation for shrewdness. It is not
common for them to get hold of
tlie poor end of a bargain. Nor
would the peddler of whom this
incident is told have come off'
“socond-hest,” if ho. had reflected
upon the judgment of Solomon.
’I'ho wise king saw that the wo
man who refused to allow the
child to be divided was its mother.
'I'ho jieddler .should have, known
that a mother would not exchange
licl- own bahy- for a box of tea :
A tea-peddler in one of tho
small towns in Canada called on
a jioor woniaii and asked her to
purchase a ho.x of tea. She told
him she was not able to jia v for
it, whereupon he proposed to" lake
tho baby that lay in the cradle
in oxchango for it, and, .she , at
once consenting, he took the bahy--
Miid loft the tea, thinking tlio wo
man would soon follow: When
he Came to the next house he told
what he had done, and was in
formed that the baby did not be
long to the woman, hut had only-
beoii left with her the night be
fore. - He then coiicluded to re
turn the child, but had to give
the woman another box of tea to
got her to take it back.
A Christian woman in a town in
New York desired to obtain a.
school-house for the purpose of
starting a Sunday school, but was
positively- refused by the .skepti
cal trustee. Still she persevered,
and entreated him again and
again. “I fell you, Aunt Polly,
it is of no use. Once for all y-ou
cannot have tho school-house for
any- such purppsoi” “I think I
ain going to get it,” said Aunt
Polly-. “I should like to know
hoiv, if I do not give 5-011 the key-,”
“I think the Lord is going to un
lock it.” “Maybe he will,” said
ilic infidel; “but I can tell yon
this, that lie is not going to get
the key- fi-om mo.” “Well, I am
going to pray over it, and I have
found out from experience, that
when 1 keep on praying, some
thing always gives away.” And
the next time she camo, the hard
heart of the infidel gave way and
she received the key.
How TO Cook a Beei-steak.—
He took the thin, long-handled
frying-pan from its nail, and ])ut-
ting it on the stove heated it
quite hot. In this ho put the
pi§ce of steak previously pound
ed, blit to their surprise lie did not
pat a particle of butter in the
fry-iiig-pan, and did not salt the
steak. He allowed the steak to
merely glaze over, and then turned
it quickly to the other side, turn
ing it several times in this man
ner .until it was done. Four min
utes wore not employ-ed in the
operation, hut a juciei- steak was
never eaten. It was, when done,
laid on tho platter, previously-
warmed, and was buttered and
salted and set a moment in a hot
oven. Allowing the steak to heat
but a moment on each side, help
ed it to retain all its sweet juices,
and putting the salt on at the last
moment after it was on tho plat
ter drew out its juices.
