"Boys may whistle, but girls must sing." That's the very thing I heard her say To Kate, no longer than yesterday, r; - V; " Boys may whistle." Of course they may, If they pucker their lips the proper way. But for the life of me I can't see Why Kate can't whistle as well us me. " Boys may whistle, but girls must sing,'.' Now I call that a curious thing. If boys can whistle why can't girls, too ? It's the easiest thing ia the world td do. First you do that, then you do this— Just like you were fixing up for a kiss. It's a very poor girl, that's all I say, Who can't make out to do that way. " Boys may whistle," but girls.-mfty not; A whistle's a song with the noise knocked out, Strayed off somewhere down in the throat, Everything lost but the changeful note. . So if boys can whistle and do it well, Why cannot girls, will somebody'tell ? Why.can't they do what a Boy can do ? That is the thing I would like to know. I went to fattier and asked him why Girls couldn't whistle as well as I. Atad he said " the reason that girls must sing Is because a girl's a slng-ular thing." And grandma laughed till I knew she'd ache When I said I thought it all a mistake. "Never mind, little man," I heard her say, " They will make yon whistle enough some day." OUTSIDE THE LIMITS. "Get out of this, you little vagabond, ain't you ashamed of yourself to be found loitering in the streets at this hour of the day? Go home now, or I'll take you to the, lock-up," said a sturdy guardian of the peace to a thinly-clad girl lingering in the doorway of a large office building on La Salle street. "I wasn't doing any harm, sir. I only wanted to get warm," she retorted, crouching back into the doorway as a gust of wind whirled the snow into her face. "Nice place to get warm ! Come along, I'll take you where it is warm enough," said he, laying his hand roughly on her arm. With a frightened cry she jerked her arm from his hold, and ran swiftly away. "Well, I'll be beat," he mutters, and opens the door from which he has driven the girl; and warms his hands over the register. IUL3IS25, 1889. . : ; . . . .

One of the, depot policemen hears the remark and roughly orders the girl to leave the. premises. ( ; She hurries away, and after running some blocks, turns down a sideistreet. She. looked at the sky, now clear and blue and studded with innumerable stars. "You are cruel,'' she; says, shaking her head reproachfully, and as she hears footsteps advancing, she turns abruptly and runs. A young woman, walking just in front of the terrified child, makes a misstep and is precipitated into a snow drift at the edge of the sidewalk. The girl extends her hands to assist the other to rise. Thank you, child," says a pleasant voice. "Why, you have no gloves on! How cold your hands are! A small bunch of icicles. Here, run away,and buy yourself a pair of mittens if -you, have none," and she slips a coin into the child's hand, and .continues on her way. ; The little homeless one stops under the; lamprpost to examine her treasure. "A; half-dollar!" she exclaims, and the .weary little heart gives a great bound of joy. She again: runs, and this time her speed is checked in a grocery store, where she invests all but 5 cents of the 50 in tea, bread and sugar. On regaining the street she hails a car,and curling herself up Jn the corner on a seat looks with,wide, waking, thoughtful eyes on the frozen, window opposite. 'This is as far as we go," announces the conductor, after a long, tedious ride, and the little figure again struggles,in the snow, hugging the small parcels close to her breast. * Nothing but snow! Great white fields of snow, though the city behind and the heavens above are gleaming with thousands of lights. Stiller. and colder the night grows, but still that dark dot moves along through the white, vast stillness of the night. The large, dark eyes at length spy an apparently long-sought-for light ahead. She soon reaches the structure from which it gleams, and opening the door without flesh. , And the vermin lived all through a key, she enters and seeks her way up. a the cruel winter, and ,in the spring time dark flight of stairs.

TJhe stars looked dowjo and smiled when they saw, the two asleep. "They are tired," they whispered into each, other, and winked and blinked and looked wise. But when the moon came she said: "This is wrong. They used to watch me nightly and ponder on strange things. I. must wake them," and she flashed her regal splendor, full into the old barn upon the sleeping man and child. "Let them rest, they are weary," said the frost, and he spup a curtain of rarest design over the oftep-patched window-panes. When the sun saw them in the morning still asleep, he tjhought, "Not yet at your labors, my friends. I must despoil your home of this pretty curtain the frost has wrought across your window." And the stars, the moon, the frost, and sunlight all did what they could for those who had loved them.

Saul and David. Samuel's house, and altar unto the Lord at Ramah' (chap, vii, 17) remind us of Abram's tent and altar (Gen. xii, 8; jxiii, 18); aa pilgrims here we should be. well content with any place of sojourn that the Lord may give us, but be sure to have in the home an altar untathe Ix>rd, a whole hearted reliance upon t^<) merits of His sacrifice, and constant communion with Him. Only as we see more of God than of man, and abide in Hun, can we be faithful servants of His in thia preseiit evil world.- That Samuel's sons walked not in his wayb fv. 8) is simply a proof that righteousness is not hereditary; consider the sons of David, and also Manassehsou of Hezekiah; and impress it upon the children that they must ,eabb one for himself accept Jesus as -their Saviour.; that the fact of father or mother being a Christian will not save them. .V "Make us a king to judge us like all the nations." God had ^ chosen Israel that they /might be unto Hinva peculiar treasure above all people—a kiugdom of priests, an holy nation (Ex. rix, 5, <i), or, as Balaam said, "The people1 shall dwell alone and . shall not be reckoued among the nations" (Num. xxiii, 9). God had made them higher than all nations. He Himself was their king. His power was their strength. His presence their glory, and; this request was like saying, "We do not care to be so different from other nations; let us have a king that we can see and let us be like other people." ft "The-thing displeased Samuel, * • * Samuel prayed .urto the Lord.'' Samuel was one with God; from a child he had ministered to the Lord, and in this request be saw their sin and downfall, and was grieved for them and jealous for the glory of God. 7. "And the Lord said unto Samuel * * * they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me that I should not reign over them." Their conduct was not a surprise to God; He had foreseen it all, and khew from the begioniag their evil hearts and how they would treat Him (De. xvii, 14), yet He loved them, many a time He forgave them, heard them and delivered them when they cried unto Him, sent tbem prophet after prophet to win them back to him, and .finally sent His own Son as their Mesriah, but even .Him they rejected and crucified, saying, " We have no f ahw kitefiut Gssar.'' The Htae will yet come as their King;'aud rejaio6 in ,Him.. anCHein them before all the. natipns of. the earth (Jer. '•W- ARTICLE IX;—ASSESSMENTS. - : xxiii," 5^8; Lu: i, 82, S3).

"They have forsaken-me and served other gods; so do they also.unto.thee." . Sam-uel: seems tQ:bave felt .that they were turning against him, and that it. was poor treatment IN of him even if he was old to ask for a king to takb his pletce: this was a natural^ feeling and wd are all apt .to giveaway to it, but the servant of-the Lord must remember that when he isdeepised or rejected or persecuted for. the truth's sake, that it is the Lord who is thus treated and not the servant merely, and .the; Lord Will see to it ; 9: ,"He«irken unto their ..voice, *. * * yet protest,solemnly." God wants cheerful, willing service, the love Of Christ constrain- •ing; He does not lovo-that which is done i grudgingly. , 10. ^"Samuel, told all the words of the Lord unto the people." Just as when, as a child, he told Eli every whit of the Lord's message (ebfip.' iii, 18), even though it was a message puces bf judgiaent, 80 now hedeclar^ faithfully all. the .words of the Lord. He is.no man.pleaser, he will speak the Lord's message faithfully (Gal.
