A Little Sunbeam.
A little sunbeam in the sky
Said to itself one day : '
I'ra very small, but why should I
Do nothing else but play ?
I'll go down to the earth and see
If there is any use for me."
The violet beds were wet with dew,
Which filled each heavy cup;
The little sunbeam dart through,
And naised their blue heads up.
They smiled to see it, and they lent
The morning breeze their sweetest scent.
A mother 'neath a shady tree
Had left her babe asleep ;
It woke and cried, but when it spied
The little sunbeam peep
So slyly in, with glance so bright
It" laughed and chuckled with delight.
On, on it went, it might not stay ;
Now through a window small
Itpoured its glad but tiny ray,
Ami danced upon the wall.
Afale young face looked up to meet
The sunbeam she had watched to greet.
And so it traveled to and fro,
And glanced and danced about ;
And not a door was shut, I know,
lo keep that sunbeam out;
.,,. !ia :t fMM,.ho,l rh ,th
" : "V v"'
It woke up happiness and mirth.
For loving words, like sunbeams, will
Dry up a fallen tear,
And loving deeds will often help
A broken heart'to cheer.
So loving and so living, you
Will be a little sunbeam too.
Conditions of the Election of 1892
Baltimore Sun. ,
Ten of the thirteen electoral votes to
cast for the first time in 184)2 bv the !
i - . . .
tour new states are conceded to the
Kepiibliean candidate for the presidency
in that year, the three of Montana
being considered doubtful or probably
Democratic. This preponderance of
Republican gains lias made arithetna
ticians of the liepttbjican party to
ui ike calculations the outcome of
which is that the next national elec
tion can be decided in favor of the
Republican candidate without the elec
toral vote of New York. In 1888 the
electoral collex; cist 401 votes, of
; which 201 were needed lo elect. Mr.
Harrison received oU
108 cast, for Mr. Cleveland, having cai
! ned New York with its oO electoral
I votes and Indiana with its 15 "electoral
i votes, in addition to the Stales usually
1 accounted surely Republican. Indiana
was iut necessary to his success but
j New York was. The change in the
situation produCed, it is claimed, by the
creation ot lour new States, is that
-J Indiana alone, without. New Nork, will
hcifiafter suffice to give the presidency
to tlie Republican party. 'Ihe electo
ral college in 1892, without a new ap
por ionment, which is improbable, will
number 414, and 2t :8 votes will be re
quired to elect. The 197 votes of the
States, exclusive of New York, that
! were for Mr. Harrison in 1888, with 10
! votes of the new States, make a total
i of 207, or 1 short, of a majority. This
! one vote may be had, it is believed,
from Montana, Connecticut or West
1 Yirgiuia. With New York Republi
can, the problem of course, would le a
j vastly easier one, but that State being
! naturally Democratic and hard to carry,
j the, calculation is made with the object
! of showing that Mr. Quay may next
time dispense with New York. The
' Haw of the scheme, it will appear, is in
i assuming that Indiana, which is essen
tial to its success, any more than New
Ybrk will go Republican in 1892.' It
is naturally a Democratic State. Un
limited bribery carried it for Garfield
in 1880 and for Harrison in 1888, but
that expedient will not, it is believed,
; be available at the next presidential
election. The next election iu Indiana
will be held under the recently-passed
1 Australian ballot law, so that the de
yiee of former times for purchasing
: votes and seeing them delivered will in
1892 lie of no service to either party
The probability, therefore, is that In-
diana will follow its natural bent next
time aud give fifteen electoral votes to j
the Democratic candidate.' Ihe calcu
lation for dispensing with New York
may be further spoiled by Rhode Isl
and, under its broadened franchise, be
coming a Democratic State. The pros
pects, therefore, of the Democrats in
the next national contest are certainly
not such that they need to lie greatly
discouraged. If they can add the votes
of New Vork'and Indiana States nat
urally Democratic to those of the
States that were for Cleveland last year,
they will Imveji majority and ight
votes to spare. Or, without Indiana,
the Democrats, having New York safe,
may win if they can capture lihode Isl-
and or California. They cannot win
without New York. Evidently the
election is going to be a close and ex
citing one. j The result, it may be ns
sumed, will be determined in large part
by contingencies which at ptesent no
one can properly estimate.

The Doctor's Witness.
A certain physician, who shall Ik?
nameless, once brought suit against a
man who had been his patient, for the
recovery of the amount of fees charg
ed in his bill. The patient pleaded, in
defence, that the doctor had visited him
many times aftej he was entirely well,
or, at least, after he the patient had
declared that he did not need him. He
was willing to pay for those visits
which had been made while he was
real lv sick, but not for those ma le
after he was just the s;tme as well.
He had been blessed with the ftttfdi tr
ance of a good and faithful nurse, who
'could have carried him safely th rough t
! his convalescence, and to whom he
really believed he owed his recovery.
Upon this the doctor chuckled glee
fully. Said he:
'Your houor. I will prove by this
rami's own nurse of whose faithfulness
he boasts, that she considered him not
entirely out of danger at the time of
which he speaks.

Power of Prayer.
There is a mightiness in prayer,
George Muller prayed a company of
poor boys together, and then he prayed
up an asylum in which they might be
sheltered. He turned tm face toward
Edinburgh and prayed aud there came
a thousand pounds. He turned his
face toward Loudon and jiruyed, and
there came a thousand pounds. He
turmd his face toward Dublin-and
prayed and there came a thousand
pounds. The breath of Elijah's prayer
blew all the clouds off the k y, and it
was dry weather. The breath of
Elijah's prayer blew all the clouds to
gether, and it rained. Prayer, in Dan
iel's time, walked the cave as a lion
tame. We have all yet to try the full
power of prayer. The time will come
when the American church and the
English church, and all the churches
will pray with their faces toward the
west, aud all the prairies and inland
cities will surrender to Godv and wili

resolution at one of their meetings:
Resolved, That we are in favor of

cosmetics be introduced in the public
schools,. and that we, as teachers, de
nounce the custom oftight lacing; of
chewing gum, of using wire, cotton
and sawdust psids to deceive in regard
to beauty of form, and of bustles to
occupy unnecessary room in every con

of much expensive material for dresses
