It is, also, that the face only, nd that
that the hand or foot doe not turn red '
with modesty or shame any more than
does the glove 4r sock that cov

is heaven. - The blush of modesty that
tinted woman face when the awoke in
Eden's sunny land, ftill lingers w'tfh
her fair daughters. They rcaught it
from the roses, for all the roses were
first white; but when Kve plucked one
the bad, seeing her own fair face', more
fair than the flower t, blushed, and
caught'its reflex on her velvet cheek.
The face is the tablet of the soul,whcrc.
in it unites iU actions. .There may
be traced all the intellectual phenom

moral certainty. If inuocence and
purity look outward from within, no

deeper, even tlan the virtues of mod

True politeness is perfect case

Harmless mirth is the best cor
dial against the consumption of the
spirits; wherefore jesting is not un
lawful, if it trespasseth uot in quan
tity, quality, or season.
WrhosoeYf r is afraid of submit
ting any question, whether civil or
religious, to the test of free discus
sion, is more in love with hi3 own
opinion than he is with truth.
Wit loses Us respect with the
good when seen in company with
malice; and to smile at the jest
which plants a thorn ;in another's
breast is to become a principal in
the mischief. .
To tell your own secrets is generally
fully, but that folly is without guilt; to
communicate those with which we are
entrusted is always treachery and,
treachery, for the most part, combined
Sympathy. It is by the passion
of sympathy that wo enter into the
concerns or others, teat we are
moved as the v arc moved, and are
never suffered to bo indifferent
spectators of almost anything that
men can do or suffer.
The spirit of true religion breaths
gentleness and affability; it is social,
kind and cheerful; far removed from
that glory superstition and bigotry
which cloud the brow, sour the temple
dijett the spirit and impress morose
ncss on the manners, .
Economy is an easy thing to ' divide
upon, but an ULccnfortable thing to
carry out, especially in household Bit
ters. The planing is pleasant enough,
but the execution u what troubles us.
We dislike to forego the accustomed
things which economy denies us, and
there is where the shoe pinches.
Speak kindly In the mo ruing; it
lightens the cares of the day, and
makes the household and all its afZairs
move along more csaocthly. . Spcik
kindly at night; for it may be that before
the dawn, some loved cue may finuh
his or her space of Hfj Car the . world,
and it will be too late to ask forgive
ncss. The setting cf a great hope b like
the setting of the sua. The bright
ncss of our life is gone. EhadoTJ cf
evening fall around us, and toe world
seems but a dull rejection itself a
broader shadow.. We look, forward iat
