No heart so hard but love at last may win it; Love is the grand primeval cause of man, All hate is foreign to the first great plan. Love much. Your heart will be led out to slaughter On altars built of envy and deceit. Love on, love on! 'tis bread upon the water; It shall be cast in loaves yet at your feet, Unleavened manna, most divinely sweet. Love much. Your faith wjll be dethroned and shaken, Your trutet betrayed by many a fair,false lure, Remount your faith and let new trusts awaken. Though clouds obscure them, yet the stars are pure; Love is a vital force and must endure. Love much. Men's souls contract with cold suspicion, Shine on them with warm love,and they expand. 'Tis love, not creeds, that from a low condition Leads mankind np to heights supreme and graud. Oh, that the world could see and understand ! Love much. There is no waste in freely giving; More blessed is it even than to receive. He who loves much, alone finds life worth living. Love on, through doubt and darkness; and believe There is no thing which love may nr»t achieve. (TLE^TL ^TORG. ONE DARK NIGHT. M. W. HULLIVAN. J. F.

Nervously, with a beating heart,a young girl hurried down a country lane, a parcel in her hands. She was London bred and had the town fear of country lanes, aud, if she d'd not think "every bush an officer," dreaded that every bush might conceal a thief. Eveline Moreton was employed in a large London mourning establishment, and she had been sent down, according to the advertisement, to "fit" a recently bereaved family. If the way was dark and gloomy, Eveline's thoughts were dark and gloomy, too. The poor child was tired and hungry, for her train had been detained for two hours by an accident on the line. She had been told to take a cab, but there was no cab to be had, and North Lodge was "quite a three-mile walk," the porter had informed her. His directions had been "Clear enough. Eveline was to keep straight along the dull, gloomy lane till she reached the high road, when North Lodge would be the third house. Oh, how she wished the walk at an end; it was so dark and dull and lonely. Eveline paused suddenly, and looked down the path she had to pursue with frightened eyes, for she distinctly heard footsteps: If she had yielded to her first impulse of childish terror she would have tried to find some hiding place behind the hedge; but, ashamed of her fears, she walked on with a low nervous laugh. The foptsteps approached rapidly, and soon a dark figure came in sight. Eveline shrank back to get out of its way, but it moved also, so that it was still right in front of her. "Good night!" said a gruff'voice. "Good night!" repeated Eveline; for as Charles Dickens said, we are never so polite as when we are frightened. "It is a dark night for you to be out in," went on the man. "Have you got such a thing as a copper about you to give a poor fellow?" Trembling Eveline took out her purse to look for a penny; as she did so, it was suddenly snatched out of her hands. Eveline gave a little cry of distress at the loss of the* money; but she was too much alarmed to utter a single word of remonstrance. The man's burly figure still barred the way. "Let me pass," she pleaded. "I have no jewelry. My purse was the only thing worth stealing; you have that, so pray let me go." Vs'V-i";--'.' ? •: "Don't be in such a hurry, pretty one," said the man, with a hoarse ladgh, and he caught hold of her arm. "I want to speak to you." "Oh! pray—pray—let me* go," cried tfveline, dropping the parcel, for her poor little heart was beating almost to 8ufl'ocation. . =• . "Not till I.give you a kiss,""he said insolently. "You are a pretty girl." \: 7 And he drew her nearer to him, so that his rough,bearded face touched her cheek. Eveline pushed him from her with all her force, uttering scream after scream. Her terror gave her a sudden strength, and for quite a minute she kept him at arm's length. "You little vixen!" he exclaimed with an oath "I'll have that kiss, in spite of all your struggles; I'll " He never finished the sentence;. for, at that mornetot. a well-dlrectetl blow from a powerful fist felled him to t^e ground. "You 90wardly blackguagw" cried the newcomer indignantly* 4,R6w dare you insult a lady I Stand up, and let me knock you down again!" Bnt thts the tramp declined to do. He rolled over in abject terror, Whining out an appeal for mercy, as tlie young man spurned him with hid foot. "I am indeed sorry that you should have, befin so flrightened by the fellow/' said the stranger, lifting his hat and turning to Eveline. . - • |§Jp§! The girl tried to thanli him, lw£ Iter emotion vvas tob ;great;«pibd putting ^ hands to her. eyes cried bitterly, while the young matf jlooked on sympathetically, scarcely knowing what to do or say tinder it "My parcel!" she exclaimed, suddenly, thinking of her employer's property. "Is here!" returned her new friend, picking it up as he spoke, "and your purse too," he added, for in the struggle the tramp had dropped Eveline's shabby portemonuaie. Eveline took the purse, and then mechanically held out her hind for the parcel; but Ralph Yernon—such was the name of the gentleman who had come to her rescue—shook his head. "I'll carry it," he said dubiously. "You don't think I'm going to leaVe you in the lane after what has happened. Where are you going?" "To North Lodge," faltered Eveline. "You will find the Thursbys io great trouble," said Ralph Vernon, looking at her curiously. "I know it," returned Eveline,coloring. "I have come from London to make up their mourning." "Oh!" cried Ralph, a little surprised, for he had imagiued that she was some poor relative, at least. His manner was even more respectful than before, and Eveline felt so glad of his company that she soon brightened up, even laughing at the recollection of the tramp, as he crawled away on his hands and knees, and then suddenly sprang to his feet, flying off like the wind. It was too dark for Ralph to distinguish the girl's features plainly: but he could see that she was pretty, and that her figure was slight and graceful. Her voice, too, pleased him ; it was so sweet and refined. This little dressmaker was a lady in every seuse of the word. "Pray, take my arm," he said kindly. "I know you are very tired and upset by the fright that ruffian gave you." "But you have the parcel to carry," returned Eveline hesitatingly. "I cau manage you and the parcel," he told her with a laugh. "You have never carried a parcel before in your life," observed Eveline, as she accepted his arm. "How do you know that?"' heasktd. good-humoredly "Well, if I have never made myself useful before, it is high lime I began now." They had left the lane, and wei;e in llie high road. Strange to say, the walk, which at the commencement seemed so intolerable to Eveline, now appeared marvellously short. "I shall never see him again," she thought, with a faint sigh, as they parted at the gates of North Lodge, and it was with a weary little face that she entered the presence of the lady of the house. He had told her that Mrs. Thursby was a very amiable woman, but still Eveline was agreeably surprised at the kindness of her reception. She had been to many houses on the same errand before, but nowhere had she been treated with such consideration.-: • - She was at North Lodge for several days, working away as if life depended on it, and as she worked, her thoughts were of the handsome stranger who had rescued her from the brutality of the tramp. Once he came up the carriage drive, and peeping from the window, she looked at his frank face and stalwart figure with a queer little ache at her heart. He was making a call on the ladies of the house, and, no doubt, was a lover of—an accepted lover of- one of Mrs. Thursby's daughters, those graceful, fair-haired ladies who were so dignified in their grief at the loss of their father. She felt relieved when her business was over, and she stood wailing in the little railway station for the train that was to carry her to London. There is no place under the sun more depressing thau a country railway station, and our little heroine had repeatedly glanced at the clock, when a tall form darkened the doorway, and she looked up to see Ralph Vernon standing before her. "So yon are going back to town," he said, shaking hands with her as if they had been old friends. "I thought I would like to come and say good-bye." "How did you know?" she asked in surprise. "Oh, Grace Thursby told me," he answered carelessly; "she is one of the best girls in the world." "She seems very nice to her inferiors," observed Eveline, a little bitterly. "I can imagine how charming she can be to her equals." "Who is her inferior?" asked Ralph Vernon, quickly. "Not you, by Jove. She was saying to me that you were a perfect lady." "Very kind of her, I am sure," said Eveline haughtily; "only I am at a loss to understand how such a discovery came about." "There now, I have oli'ended you," said Ralph, contritely; "but I am such a clumsy fellow." "Not at all," returned Eveline, huskily. "It is very kind of your affianced wife to take such an interest in me." ,5- i ",\ly affianced wife!" he saidi witfi a hearty laugh. ""I should like my brother John to hear you say that." He was very close to her now, as they sat on the hard bench. p|*'l)?)n't you know that I fell desperately in love with you that night when I rescued you from the tramp—at least I think I did, although if was not until I saw you peep at me through the window, that I knew, how exquisitely pretty you were. Be my wife, and let me take care of you, not only on dark nights, but all your life." • >; '• ' ; ' " Hut Eveline shook her head, for although her heart prompted her to say "yes," she. felt tb^t she haSl no right to accept the sacrifice her impulstve and hot-headed loyeii was, willing to make, for her sake. ? f. /•It cannot be," she said, mournfully. "It is a mad, Quixotic idea. I know from what l have heard Mrs. Thursby say, that yon are wealthy." "Hang the money!' exclaimed Ralph.' ,4If yon don't say 4yes,' I'll go lion hunt; ing in Africa, and get torn to pieces by ' But eventhif effect upon Eveline; she was firm in her determination to do right atauycost; she would not even tell him where she lived. And so they parted at the little railway station, and Eveline went back to London with less color in her cheeks than when she had left it, aud a strange gloomy look in her beautiful eyes. "It is all for the best," she thought: but life had never been so hard to bear. The girl was brave—very brave—and wanted to do right; but the struggle between love and duty sapped her strength, and laid her on a bed of sickness, from which it seemed she would never rise. During her illness she was continually calling upou Ralph Vernon, in such piteous accents that it drew tears from the eyes of those who heard the poor weak voice. "Mother, I'm goin.« to telegraph lor thi^ Mr. Vernon," said Eveline's sister Nellie. "It is dreadful to look at her white face and glittering eyes,and to hear her calling upon his name from morniug until night." "But who is this Mr. Vernon?'' asked the poor mother helplessly. "I don't know," said Nellie; "but I found a card with his name and address on it, and I intend to send for hiin. It must be some one she cares for, and I don't meau to let her die if anything can save her." "But perhaps he won't care to come," said the mother, with the prudence of age and experience. "Then he can stay away," returned Nellie, her eyes wet with tears; and there was a look of p-iin in her sweet countenance, for her mother liiiyhi be riirlit, and what would become of poor Eveline if there should be no answer to the telegram? The next few hours were anxious ones for Nell. She stood up breathless with eagerness when some one knockeil soft'y at the door. In another moment Ralph Vernon was iu the room, aud had grasped her by the hand as if she had been an old friend iu-stt- ad of a stranger. "Is she— ?" he c<nild not finish the sentence, f.»r he feared tin- wor.-t "She still lives," returned Nrllie, and, taking him by the hand, Eveline's sister led Ralph into the next room where the poor girl lay. Her mother was kneeling at the side of the bed, bvit rose iustantly and motioned to Ralph to take her place, and, as he did so, Eveline opened her eyes and looked at him. The sight of that beloved face had a magical effect upon Eveline. She put out her weak hand with a little cry that told more plainly than words how cruel her sacrifice had been, and, as he gathered her in his arms, her lover registered a stern vow that, if her life were spared, he would make her his iwj&MHpsinvte^o^ all the world—herself in-cludecr Tfnfl s(T"he clltl, for avenne te-covered from that very hour, and directly there was a quiet wedding, and the two started for the south of France, where they remained until Eveline had recovered her health. They are an exceptionally happy couple, and Grace Thursby tells her husband that his brother Ralph's wife is the sweetest woman she knows. When to Wind a Watch. It was a Fifth avenue jewelry store. "My watch," said a gentlemau to the salesman, exhibiting a costly repeater, "varies a minute a week. It ought to keep time to the second, and so you represented to me when I purchased it. Look at it." The salesman critically examined the works through his glass, closed the case and handed the timepiece to its owner. "There is nothing thl? matter with your watch. It will keep perfect time if you wiud it in the morning " "Oh," laughed the gentleman, "that's a chestnut. I wind it at a certain hour at night." "That has nothing to do with it," responded the clerk. "During the night your watch is quiet, as it were. That is, it hangs in your vest without motion or touch. If you don't wind it at night the mainspring is then relaxed instead of being iu that condition during the day. By winding it in the morning the mainspring remains close and tight all day. It keeps the movement steady at a time when you are handliug it, running around and more or less jarring it as you hasten about the city attending to your daily affairs. A relaxed mainspring at this time accounts for fine watches varying slightly. Try it, and you will find that I am right." York Sun. -New The Restriction of Immigration. Shall immigration be restricted, aud,it so, how and to what extent, is one of the important questions that will in all probability occupy the attention of the coming session of congress. Senator Ohatid-lor, of New Hampshire, is the chairman of a committee 011 the subject which is now sitting iu New Yoik, uot for the purpose of taking testimony, but of «ii»cuss-ing ainendmeuts to the law. His views on the subject are radical, but uot more sb than those of the Kuights of Labor as enunciated by Mr Powderly. The New Hampshire senator aud the geueral master workmau are both of the pinion.that immigration should be prohibited for a period of years, Mr. Chand-lor placing the limit at five. . "Wages" he asserts, "cannot be maintained up to their present standard in this country unless Immigration is stopped. If wages are reduced the democrats will be swept out of power by popular sentiment"., He adduces these as reasons why, were he a democrat, he should vote for the five years' suspension. f.'- r Republicans and democrats are liike interested in the preservation of the republic, in Its . growth, progress,development, oil sure, broad, steady, time enduring lines.

Text of the Lesson, Zecli. Hi, 1-10—Memory Verses, 7, S—Golden Text, Hel>. Iv, 14 — Coiunieiitury l>y tlie Uev. I). 91. Stearns. By comparing verses 14 and 15 with verse! of Hag. i it will be seen that in about three weeks after his first message the work was resumed. Then he had other messages for them in the seventh and ninth months of the'same year (Hag. ii, 1, 10, 20). The first message came to Zeehariah in the eighth month of the same year (Zeeli. i, 1), and on the night of the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month he receives a series of seven or eight visions which are recorded in chapters i, 7, to vi, 15. Our lesson is the fourth of these visions, the first three teaching that the hosts of heaven act on behalf of God's people; that for every destroyer there is a repairer, and that God, having chosen Jerusalem, will surely perform all his pleasure concerning her. 1. "And he showed me Joshua, the high priest, standing before the angel of the Lord, and satan standing at his right hand to resist him." A prophet represents God to the people, while a priest represents the people befdre God. This high priest represents the nation of Israel as appearing before God for a blessing, and the great adversary is there also to prevent this blessing if he possibly can. I suppose that no individual or nation ever came to God without knowing something of the resistance of the adversary. 2. "And the Lord said unto satan: The Lord rebuke thee, O satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee. Is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?" See chapter ii, 12; Ps. exxxii, 13. God had chosen Israel and Jerusalem, and that settled it. Ananias thought that Saul of Tarsus was too desperately wicked to expect anything good from, but God's "Go thy way, for he is a chosen vessel unto me," settled all that (Acts ix, 15). God knows His instruments before lie chooses them, and is prepared to cleanse and qualify for His service at any cost. 3. "Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and stood before the angel." Here is the ground of satan's resistance. Israel could not deny her filthy garments; no more can we. We must cry out with Isaiah, "Woe is Die, for I am a man of unclean lips" (Isa. vi, 5), and with Job, "I abhor myself" (Job xlii, <>), for "all our righteousnesses (our very best things) are as filthy rags" (Isa. Ixiv, (j). Every month must be stopped and all the world plead "guilty" before God (Rom. iii, 19). 4. "Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him lie said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and 1 will clothe thee with change of raiment." Thus He will yet remove the iniquity of that land and of that people in one day (verse 9), and they shall be all righteous (Isa. Ix, 21). Thus He now forgives s:ns and says to every true penitent who confesses all and hides nothing, "Son, daughter, thysins are forgiven thee"(Math. ix, 2, 22). All our efforts at goodness are like Adam and Eve's fig leaf aprons compared with the garments of light which they lost. But the Lord God provides garments of salvation, and we have only to drop our fig leaf aprons, cast aside all our own righteousness and gladly aeeept God's provision, and then sing Isa. lxi, 10. 5. "So they set a fair miter upon his "Head and clothed him with garments, and the angel of the Lord stood by." The miter was the linen headdress worn by the priest, the most conspicuous part of which was the golden plate or crown, upon which was inscribed, "Holiness Unto the Lord" (Ex. xxviii, 36-38). In the days of Israel's restoration and salvation Jesus, their king, will be "A Priest Upon His Throne" (chapter vi, 13), a priest king after the order of Mclchizedec. The church will reign with Him as priests and kings, for such are we even now l>y faith in Him (Rev. v, 9, 10; i, 6). 0,7. "A nd t he angel of tlie Lord protested unto Joshua, saying, Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge." Salvation from beginning to end is of the Lord. He alone is t he author and the finisher, and we are the recipients. But being plucked from the burning and cleansed and separated unto God, Israel is to walk with I-Iim and show forth His power and glory. So with the believer, lie i* saved not simply to escape the wrath of God and reach heaven at death, but to abide here in a mortal hotly amid conflict ai.d trial as long as it please the Lord, showing forth the life of Jesus it) His mortal flesh (II Cor. iv; 10, 11). This is to the natural man impossible; but what Christ has done in a mortal body He can surely do again, and one of the Christian's mottoes is, "Not I, but Christ, who livetli in me" (Gal. ii, 20). 8. "Hear, now, O Joshua, the high priest, Behold I will bring forth my servant, Tlie Branch." While the words of the Book have to do with the time when the words were spoken, there is always a looking forward to the grand consummation when Jesus shall come in power and glory for the complete overthrow of all enemies and the permanent establishment of His kingdom on t he earth. In connection with His name, The Branch, I hope you will look up chapters vi, 12; Isa. iv, 2; Jer. xxiii, 5; xxxiii, 15. Here He is the servant fully seen in Mark's Gospel; in Jer. xxiii, 5, He is the King of Matthew's Gospel; in Zecli. vi, 12, He is the Man of Luke's Gospel, while in Isa.'iv, 2, He is the beauty and glory of John's Gospel. He is alpha and omega, the altogether lovely one, in whom dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. 9. "For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyesi" He is the stone of Israel, despised by the builder's and rejected, and yet to be head cornerstone. He is the stone cut out without hands who shall break in pieces all kingdoms and fill the earth with his glory'(Gen. xlix, 24; Ps. cxviii, 22: Isa. viii, 14; xxviii, 10; I Pet. ii, 6-8; Mat h, xxi, *12; Dan. ii, 44, 45). The seveu eyes suggest omniscience, as the seven horns and eyes of Rev. v, 6, suggest both omnipotence and omniscience. The engraving suggests the righteousness of the law graven by God upon tables of stone, aud which was fulfilled In Him and shall be in Israel when their iniquity shall be taken away. 10. "In .that day, saith the Lord of Hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbor under the vine and under the fig tree." In I Kings iv, 25, this language describes the peace and prosperity of the kingdom under Solomon. Here aud in Mic. iv, 4, it describes the tranquil prosperity and millennial blessedness of the coming kingdom under a greater man than Solomon, of the increase of whose government and peace there shall be no end upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom, to order ft and to establish 'if"with judgment and with justice, from henceforth even forever. The seal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this (Isa. ix, 1).

Mr. Seth E Parsons is one of the leading business men of Albany, N. Y., and is widely known and highly esteemed as a citizeu of sterling integrity, with the energy and force of character characteristic of our American business men. Seen at his honte, 22 Park street, by our paper's representative, he express*d himself in terms of the areatest gratification that he had escaped possibly a most serious nervous diiliculty which nvght have prostrated him. '• I was very nervous," he said, '• I •ouhl not hold my hands still, especially my lefi hand; there was an inyoluntary contraction of the muscles and movement of the fingers. MIS SHTH K. l'AKSONS. •' My food troubled me very soou after eating. Mv kidneys and bladder were •ftVcted so it was ciillicult to urinate free-y. 1 used the celebrated medicine, Dr. Greene's Nei vura blood and nerve remedy, tnd without being tedious reciting my experience, I can say that these diflicul-ties have left me, and my nerves are quiet ind my food does not distress me. " I feel without hesitation in saying that I think Dr. Greene's Nervura blood ind nerve remedy has produced these favorable results." We have heard of many remarkable <:ures being effected by this remedy, but •vhen we learn directly and from his own ivords of its curing a man of Mr. Parson's prominence and standing, we belii-ve that •iuch a cure should be to all a guarantee >f the great curative powers cf the reme-ly and should influence all thinking persons who are suffering from disease to use this truly remarkable medicine. It can be purchased for$l at any druggist's, ind we know it is purely vegetable and Harmless. What gives us most confidence in the remedy is the fact that it is the discovery •ind prescription of Dr. Greene of West 14th street, New York, the eminent specialist iu curing nervous aud chronic diseases and that the doctor oilers to all sufferers free consultation with him either by calling at his office or writing to hint.
