Say, Khali 1 now despond
And ditvrn my nrinor lay ;
When dnrknpfts gnHicr 'nand,
And foes obstruct my wsy !
No, ni-ver will I yield,
Nor ftltall I cower down.
But bravely keep tin field,
Though all the world mny frown.
But by the trnth and right
I'll atuud at every cnt,
And ever for theni fight
fill all is won or Inst.
And while the conflict's wnged
To virtue I'll prove true -
Wherever Vm engaged,
And to the end endure !
Yes, on 111 go in faith,
Hope in, and trust try Lord, -Who
pled with his last breath,
And for me shed his blond.
He loved me in my sin,
And for ie deigned to die,
That I might reign with Him
Forever more on high.
He's paid for me my debt,
And freedom for me bought,
Ami Him I'll ne'er forget
However hard uty lot.
Aad now do 1 implore,
Tliat 1 with zeal each day
May lahor inure and more
For Him iu every way.
Lord! free me from uiy sin,
And from it keep me free,
That I at lat may win
A home iu heaven with thee !
Where all who've gone before
Will join wiih me to praise
Our Lord forever more,

to us a very sound return to the old
practice. It is certainly business like
to let the same committee which con

occurred here last Tuesday that may

came here with a ring that had a beau

him if he was going to get rid of tlie
opal altogether, and he said that he
was going to distroy it. I was rather
surprised, and said :
"Don't do that; I'll give you $50
"He declared that he didn't want
money for it; that it had brought him
nothing but bad luck since he bought
it; that he failed in business and lost
two of his children, and all, of course,
on account of a little piece of stone.
I went over to that bench and took
the opal out of its setting, and while
looking at the ring I laid the gem on
the bench beside me. As quick as
