And .von, I know, would acarcelr think

Most beautiful to me.

When her heart was weary and sad,
These patient hands keep toiling iu
That the children might be glad. L
I often weep when looking back
To childhood's distant day,
I think how these hands rested not,
When mine were at their play.
Such beautiful, beautiful hands!
They are growing feeble now,
And time and toil have left their mark
On hand and heart and brow.
Ata ! Alas ! the nearing time,
1 ue sad, sad day to me,
When, 'neath the daisies out of sight,
These hands will folded be.
Rut 0, beyond these shadowy lands,
Where all is bright and fair,
I known full well these dear old hands
Will palms of victory bear.
When crystal streams through endless
Flow over golden sands,
And when the old grow young again,
I'll clasp my mother's hands.

It will not do to be over confident.
Ohio has a habit of casting her electora
vote for the Renublican candidate. In
1856 the vote of tbe State went to Fre
moot, the Pathfinder, who lost his path
to the White House and never got within
gun shot of it afterwards. In 1860 Ohio
voted for Lincoln, and increased the vote
iu 1864. In 1868 and 1872 that State
supported Grant. Iu 1876 she voted for

A Real Boy.
A real, trae, hearty, happy boy is about
the best thing we know of, unless it is a
leal girl, and there is not much to choose
between them. A real boy maj lie a sin
cere lover of the Lord Jesus Christ, even
if he cannot lead the prayer meeting, ior
be a church officer, or a preacher, but ke
can be a godly boy iu a boy's way aud
place. He is apt to be noisy aud full of
fun, and there is nothing wrong about
that. He ought not to be too solemn or
too quiet for a boy. He need not cease
to be a boy because he is a Christian. He
ought to run, jump.play, climb, and
shout like a real boy. But in it all he
ought to show the spirit of Christ. He
ought to be free from vulgarity aud pro
fauity. No real true boy chews or uses
tobacco in any form, and he has a horror
of intoxicating driuks. The only way lie
treats tobacco is like the boy who was
jeered aud laughed at by some old oues
because he could not chew. His reply
was, I can do more than that; I can esehrw
it." Aud so he did all his life. A rod
boy is also peaceable, gentle, merciful,
geuerous. He takes the part of small
Doys against large boys.
fighting. He refuses to be a party iu mis
chief and deceit.
Above all things he is never afraid to
show his true colors. He need not always
be interrupting, hut he ought not to lie
ashamed to say that he refuses to do any-
hiug because it is wrong and wicked, or
because he fears God, or is a Christian.
A real boy never takes part in the ridi
cnle of sacred things, but meets the ridi
cule of others with a bold statement that
for all things of God he feels the deepest
reverence. And a real boy is not asham
ed to say "father77 or "mother will not
like it if I do so aud so." Jt is ouly your
sham milk-and-water boys that arc afraid
to do light. Every one respects the real
boy, and every one despises the sham,

Coleridge relates a story to this effect :
Alexander, during his march into Africs,
came to a people dwelling in peaceful
huts, who knew not of war nor conquest.
Gold being offered him he refused it, say
ing that his sole object was to learn the
manners and customs of the inhabitants.
"Stay with us," said the chisf, "as long
it plcascth thee." V
unring the interview with the African
chief, two of his subjects brought a case
before him for judgment. The dispute
was this: The one had bought a piece of
ground which after the purchase was
found to contain a treasure, for which he
felt himself bound to pay. The other
refused to receive anything, stating that
he had sold the ground with what it might
be found tseen4saWs sntniruatsir conceal
Said the chief looking at the one: "You
have a aon," and to the other, "you have
a daughter ; let them be married aud the
treasure giveu them as a dowry."
Alexander was astonished.
"And what," said the chief, "would
have been the decision in your eountryf"
"We would have dismissed the parties
aud seized the treasure for the king's

The Heal Home.
The real home is iu the country and it
is something mo e than a dwelling ; the
field and trees around it are part of it,
and the views from it of the landscape,
and of distant mountains, perhaps, make
it uulike any other place iu the world.
The country home with its fixity of sur
roundings has usually some memoire of
permanence, and the social life formed
there is under the favorable conditions of
old family associations. Some have the
happy condition of living in the home of
their fathers, aud are surrounded with
obitCt8 of cious memory, daily memen
toes of parental attection and instruction.
The home which it makes is the best
thing of farm life. There is a ucces&ily
of permanence, and as there is no sudden
or great accumulation of wealth, or lar.fjc
increase, the family is free from that dis-
content which usually comes with sudden
or great acquisition. It is one of the com
pensations of their condition that the far
mer's family is in that "fixity of surrouud-
iugs" which favors their highest culture.
The "Singing Beach," at Manchester,
Mass., is exciting considerable attention
among scientific men. They have taken
sands from the beach aud subjected them
to microscopical exa mi nation, and have
found that the phenomenon which gives
rise to the name of the beach, is confined
to that pori ion of the sand lying between
the water line aud loose sand above the
reach of ordinary high tides. The sound
ing sand is uear the surface; at tlie depth
of one or two fret it ceases, it is thought
because of moisture. The sound is pro
duced by pressure, and may be likened
to a subdued crushing, is of low intensity
and pitch, not metallic nor crackling. It
occurs wheu the sand is pressed by ordi-
uaiy walking, increases with a sudden
pressure of the foot, aad is quite percep
tible upon mere stirring ef the band or
even plunging one finger and removing
it suddenly. The sound can be intensi
fied by dragging wood over the beach.
There are singing sands on one of the
Hawaiian Islands, where tlie sound re
sembles distant thunder, and Hugh Mil
ler cites similar instances at Gebel Na
tions, in Arabia Petrea, and Beg Bawan,
near Cabul. where tbe sand eives a sort
of humming noise. In Churchill county,
Nevada, a like phenomenon is described
with regard to a sand hill, resembling the
sound of telegraph wires wheu the wind
blows them. Forney's Progress.
