I). M. 86. "Peace be unto you." Thus spake Josus as He stood in the midst of the disciples as they were gathered together in Jerusalem on that first evening after the resurrection. He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, then to the other women, then to Simon and to tho- two who walked to Bmmaus and now to the disciples with these comforting words. They might possibly think of His words tho night before tho crucifixion, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you" (John xiv, 27). "He Is our peace," and a mind staid on Him has perfect peace (Eph. ii, 14; Isa. xxvl, 3). 87, 88. "Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?" They were frightened when they saw Him, and Ho asks, "Why?" for if they had believed His own words, or if they had believod the women who had seen Him that day, they might have shouted for joy, saying: "Here He is! Here is our Lord!" Why are we troubled when He says, "Let not your heart be troubled," and'"See that ye be not troubled?" (John xiv, 1, 27; Math, xxiv, 6.) Why do thoughts arise when His thoughts to us are all thoughts of peace? (Jer. xxix, 11.) 39. "It is I myself." "Jesus Himself" (verses 15, 86)). "This same Josus" (Acts i, 11). "The Lord Himself" (I Thess. iv, 16). "His own self" (I Pet. ii, 24). How can we think of death, or some great event, or even the Holy Spirit, as being the same as "the Lord Himself?" What the difference was between the body of flesh and blood in which He died and this body of flesh and bones in whioh He now was we shall know some day when our bodies have become like His (Phil, iii, 21). We are sure that His resurrection body was material and tangible, and in it He could walk and eat. Ours shall be like His. 40-43. "He showed them His hands and His feet." And there they would see the prints of the nails, evidence that He was tho same Jesus who had been crucified and that this was the same body that Joseph and Nicodemus had carefully laid in tho tomb. It is not likely that the resurrection body will need to eat, but we will in that, as in other matters, be able to "Do as occasion serve us" to the glory of God. 44. "All things must bo fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning Me." On the way to Emmaus He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself (verse 27). May we remember that all the Scriptures concern. Him, and that all things must be fulfilled. If one should ask in what manner the unfulfilled parts are to be fulfilled, let the answer be, exactly after the fashion of the words already fulfilled. 45. "Then opened He their understandings that they might understand the Sorip-tureai" Inasmuch as He is still the very same Lord Jesus, Why not trusP Him to open our understandings to understand the Scriptures; -ask Him to read the book with us, and.by His Spirit instruct us? When we count upon Him, He will not disappoint us, for He has given us His Spirit to guide us into all truth, and who teacheth like Him (John ziv, 26; xvi, 18; Job xxxvi, 22). 46. "Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day." Every detail of His sufferings and resurrection, as recorded so fully in Ps. xxil; Isa. liii; Ps. xvi, and elsewhere, was fulfilled to the letter. When we stand upon what is written, as it is written, we are on safe ground, but the least adding to, or taking from, or altering or weakening or handling deoelt-fully is all forbidden. 47. "And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." This is why He suffered and died and rose again that He might obtain eternal redemption for all who will accept Him. Up to the time of His death the preaching was limited, with rare exceptions, to Israel, but after His resurrection the command is to all nations in all the world and to every creature. The message now is that through thid Man is preached the forgiveness of sins, and by Him all that believe are justified from all things (Aots xili; xxxviil, 89; x, 48). 48. "And ye are witnesses of these things." A witness is one who is sworn to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and he must tell only what he knows to be so, not what he thinks or supposos or imagines. In Isa. xliii, 10,12weread, "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God." They had heard His voice, had seen His works and were qualified to bear witness that He was the only truo God. The-Lord Jesus, by His life and words and works, bore witness to the Fathor, and now we, by our lives and words and works, are to bear witness unto Him that He has saved us, and that He keeps us, and that He will do the same for all who believe on Him. 49. "And behold I send the promise of my Father upon you, but tarry ye in the oity of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high." They had received the Spirit, they had been with the greatest of teachers for over two years, perhaps for three years, but they needed a special en-duement of the Spirit for service. Therefore He said, "Ye shall receive the power of the Holy Spirit coming upon you, and ye shall be witnesses unto me" (Aots 1, 8, margin). 60, 51. "While He blessed them He was parted from them and oarried up into heaven." So Enoch and Elijah were taken up, body and soul, and so all the saints will be taken at His coming. When He came as a babe to Bethlehem, He brought blessing to the shepherds, to whom the angela told the glad tidings, and now, as He leaves the earth, it is with blessing upon His disciples. Wherever He went He brought blessing. He Himself is ihe sum and substanoe .of all blessing. Therefore we may well sing, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings In the heavenliness in Christ (Eph. !, 8). 62, 68. "Continually in the temple, praising, and blessing God." They returned to Jerusalem with great joy. How sould they when they aotually saw Him leave them and ascend into heaven, remembering that when He died they-were ailed with suoh sadness? The secret of their joy is found in the message of the angels whom He sent back to say, "This same Jestia which is taken up from you Into heaven shall so oome in like manner as ye have seen' Him go* into, heaven"' (Aots i, 11). Therefore they gladly Wit- ' nessed unto a risen Christ and joyfully waited for His return. j BtrcmuKR'e Abmica 8Ai.VK.~The best Salve in the woftld for cflts, bniiws, sorps, ulcers, salt rheon), Ifever sows, tetter, cfiapped hands* chilblains, corns, and all skin empties, MM* positively cures piles, or no pay required* 'It is'guaranteed to Orchard's where I'd rutlier be— Needn't fence in fer me; Jes' the whole sky overhead, And the whole airth underneath— Sorto' so's a man kin breathe Like lie ort, and kindo' has Elbow room to keerlessly Sprawl out len'thways on the grass Where the shadders thick and soft As the klvvers on the bed Mother fixes in the loft Alius when they's company: Jes' a sorto' lazin' there— S' lazy, at you peek and peer Through the wavin' leaves above, Like a feller 'at's in love And don't know it, ner don't keer; Ever'thing you hear and see Got some sort o' interest- Maybe find a bluebird's nest Tucked up there conveenently Fer the boy's 'at's apt to be Up some other apple-tree; Watch the swallers skootin' past 'Bout as peart as you could ast; Er the Bobwhite raise and whiz Where some other's whistle is.

Eavesdropping is always a reprehensible proceeding, and when indulged in by a person who has good grounds for believing that that person's own self forms the topic of conversation likely to be overheard, the practice becomes altogether unpardonable. Without desiring in the least to justify the breach of good manners committed, I am constrained to think, nevertheless, that here was some little excuse for my behavior. You see, it was like this. Harry But-terfield, the son of Cql. Butterfield of the British army, was desperately in love with me, and I hope I am not overstepping the bounds of maidenly modesty by admitting that I was very fond of him in return. . . . One evening, after working himself up to the requisite pitch of passion, Harry made me a proposal of marriage. Although I had long seen it coming, of course, I pretended, in a woman's regular way, that his offer had quite taken me by surprise; notwithstanding the fact that 1 was dying to say "yes," I assured him that I could not possibly give him an answer for at least a week. As I expected, he was so pressing, however, that I consented without further delay, and fell into his arms in the usual manner, while he whispered vows of eternal constancy and so on.„ _v _• Harry had told me tiefore going away that evening that he had some little business with my father in the morning, and said that he would seize the opportunity thus afforded of getting papa's consent to our marriage. When, therefore, the bell rang early the next day, and Harry was admitted and shown into the parlor; where papa was reading the auction news in the morning paper, of course X knew what his errand was. >, 1 was therefore naturally anxious as to the result of the interview, and when it began to get unduly prolonged, I was quite on thorns. My solicitude at length became so gr&at that I left the housekeeper's room, where I bad, been vainly endeavoring to'fix my attention on some preserves that required tying down, and stole on tiptoe along the passage leading to the parlor door and listened. . Harry was talking. - "She 'Never had an hour's illness since the day she was born. It was kind of- papa to say this, but of course his statement was not literally correct. Everybody has illness at some time or other in their lives, and T was no exception to the rule. I was just about tripping away on thus discovering that .the interview had not ended when Harry again spoke. "Is her appetite good?" It was certainly a strange question,and I could not see that it was at all a necessary one, but I confess I do not understand men's ways. Papa answered my lover's query by saying that I took my meal's regularly, and seemed to enjoy them, which I must admit was a fact. Curiosity now made me stay for Harry's next inquiry. "Has she any temper?" he asked almost directly. It was preposterous! Temper! I soon should have, if inquiries such as •hese were persisted in. In fact, it was only papa's answer,' 'Not the slightest!" uttered in the most assuring manner, that prevented my developing something of the kind at once. As it was, the blissful frame of mind in which I had been since the previous evening was, as the meteorologists say, decidedly inclined to give way. Although feeling that I had heard enough, I thought that, as I had listened to so much, I might as well hear a little more. I had not long to wait. "I really must say," Harry went on, ' 'that there are one or two other points about her of which I do not altogether approve." I had quite developed a temper now, which even papa's answer could not assuage. "Well," returned my parent, "of course I. don't pretend that she's perfection ; but, take her altogether, she won't be easy to beat. All the same, I should like to hear wliRt you consider her faults!" "Well," said Harry, commencing his criticism with a deliberation that made my flesh crawl, "she is passable about the head and face, I admit, but her neck seems to me unduly long, and her shoulders have the appearance of being a trifle too broad." Could it be possible that the man giving utterance to this opinion was the same who had held me in his arms a few hours previously, and asserted that I was the most beautiful creature on God's earth? "Broad shoulders are by no means a drawback, Master Harry, for they eflable her to accomplish a great amount of Yes, it was true! A lot of labor did fall to my share, and had done since my mother's death three years previously. But I went at it cheerfully and without complaint. Work, even to the point of exhaustion, became a pleasure when performed for an appreciative father, but it never could be so when done on behalf of an unsympathetic husband. Husband! Thank heaven, Harry Butterfield was not that yet!" • "And then, you know," went on my lover—save the mark!—"her figure is somewhat disproportionate, and she is decidedly fat." It was a gross libel! Although not in the least addicted to tight lacing, I could assert with absolute accuracy that my last new blouse was only eighteen inches around the waist, and I was quite comfortable in it! To call me stout under such circumstances was a cruel untruth. I felt that my love was fast giving way to an altogether different emotion, and it would need but little more to turn the scale entirely. Strangely enough it was my father who applied the last straw. ' 'Look here," papa said after a momentary pause. "I'm sure you only need to get used to her to appreciate her value. Take her a month on trial; and if, at the end of that time you don't like her, let her come back again." That was more than I could stand. The idea was monstrous, and how my father could suggest such a thing quite passed my comprehension. It's effect on me was magical. Throwing propriety, good manners, and everything else to the winds, I rushed into the room. "It shall not be!" I exclaimed passionately. "I will never be a party to such !a' shameful transaction!" and then, deeming that the occasion eminently warranted the proceeding, I threw up my arms and went off into a fit of hysterics, winding up in a dead faint. " ^ \ When I came around I was lying on a sofa, with Harry bending anxiously over me. Papa had gone for a doctor. "Thank heaven, you are recovering!" said Harry, as I opened my eyes. ^ • "Would that I had died!" I groaned. "Pray, do not talk like that," said Harry. "How can you give utterance to such a wicked wish?" . "There is nothing to live for," I mur* oSured mournfully. "Nothing! No one?, asked fearry,looking into my" eyes. "Nothing; no one J" I answered, repeating his words. "You are ill, Emily," he said, "or you would not talk in that strange way.%^ "I am*not ill," I said, rising"from Sfie sofa to prove the truth of my statement. ."Look at me for a moment, Harry Butterfield," I continued, fading my lover fearlessly, "and let- toe Hear flist hand what you think of me. Am i passable about the head and face? Is my neck unduly long? And do you consider my shoulders broad and my figure fat, eh? Answer me to my face, Bir, for I know-that is r°» t cannot understand." '•Is not your opinionof me what ^... —__ ' "Certainly not my; deap^et. f|| 1 "Did you * not give eSpr®041^ ' when but not in connection with you, my pretty girl," said Harry, smiling. "Of whom were you speaking then?" I asked, a faint light beginning to break in upon me. "Why, the gray mare, to be sure, which I think of purchasing for. our use when we are married!" » I fell into Harry's arms when I saw my stupid mistake laughing and crying by turns. As soon as I was able, I told him all about my eavesdropping, what I had heard, and the construction I put upon it. Then I gave over crying and we both laughed together,and were thus employed when papa and the doctor came. The doctor did not think I required physicking when he examined my tongue, so we all went in to lunch, and Harry took occasion to inform me that papa had given his consent to our union, and all the financial part of the business was settled to his entire satisfaction. Thus my little comedy of errors came to a happy ending after all; and when, a few weeks later, Harry and I were united in the bonds of matrimony, it was by my expresswish that the gray mare was used to drive us to church.
