With her funny little glasses you'd have thought her very wise If it wasn't for the laughter that was peeping from her eyes; Just the queerest and the dearest little school-ma'am ever known Whose way of teaching boys and girls was certainly her own. "I give my brightest pupil," in a pleasant tone she said "A little corner by'himself to show that he is head And to spare the tender feelings of the dullest boy, I put All the others in a circle so you can't tell which is foot. "Whenever any pupil in his lesson doesn't miss, I encourage his endeavor with a penny sugar-kiss; And since this slight upon the rest might too severely fall, I take the box of kisses and I hand 'em round to all. "I've asked them what they'd like to be a dozen times or more, • And each, I find, intends when grown to keep a candy store; So, thinking that they ought to have some knowledge of their trade, I've put a little stove in, just to show them how it's made. "Enthusiastic? bless you, it is wonderful to see How interested in such things a little child can be; And from their tempting taffy and their luscious lollipops, I'm sure they'll do me credit when they come to open shops." And with a nod that plainly showed how free she was from doubt, She deftly smoothed the wrinkles of her snowy apron out- Just the queerest and the dearest little school-ma'am ever known, Whose way of teaching boys and girls yvas really all her own. Scleuhtd $toro THE BAD BOY ON A FARM, "Want to buy any cabbages?" said the bad boy to the grocery man, as he stopped at the door of the grocery, dressed in a blue ramus, bis breeches tucked in his boots, and an old hat on his head, with a hole that let out his hair through the top. He had got out of a democrat wagon, and was holding the lines hitched to a horse about forty years old, that leaned against the liitching-post to rest. ' 'Only a shilling apiece." "O, go 'way," said the grocery man. "I only pay three cents apiece." And then he looked at the boy and said, "Hello, Hennery, is that you? I have missed you all the week, and now you come on to me sudden, disguised as a granger. What does this aU mean?" "It means that I have been the victim of aa vjjle a conspiracy aa ever waa knowja. since Caesar was tony orated over his prostrate corpse in the Roman forum, to an audience of supes and scene shifters," and the boy dropped the lines on the sidewalk, said "Whoa,gol darn you," to the horse, that was asleep, wiped his boots on the grass in front of the store and came in and seated himself on the old half bushel. "There, this seems like home again." "What's the row? Who has been playing it on you?" and the grocery man smelled a sharp trade in cabbages, as well as other smells peculiar to the farm. "Well, I'll tell you. * Lately our folks have been constantly talking of the independent life of the farmer, and how easy it is, and how they would like it if I would learn to be a farmer. They said there was nothing like it, and several of the neighbors joined in and said I had the natural ability to be one of the most successful farmers in the state. They all drew pictures of the fun it was to work on a farm, where you could get your work done and take your fish-pole and go off and catch fish, or a gun and go out and kill game, and how you could ride horses, and pitch hay, and smell the sweet perfume, and go to husking bees and dances, and everything, and they got me all worked up so I wanted to go to work on a farm. Then an old deacon that belongs to our church, who runs a farm about eight miles out of town, he came on the scene and said he wanted a boy, and if I would go out and work for him he would be easy on me because lie knew my folks, and we belonged to the same church. > I can see it now. It was all a put-up job on me, just like they play three card monte on a fresh stranger. I was took in. By gosh, I have been out there a week, and here's what there is left of me. The only way I got a chanoe to come to town was to tell the farmer I could sell cabbages to you for a shilling apiece. I knew you sold them for fifteen cents and I thought you would give a shilling. So the farmer said he would pay me my wages in cabbages at a shilling apiece and only charge.me a dollar for the horse and wagon to bring them in. So you only pay three cents. Here are thirty cabbages, which will come to ninety cents. I pay a dollar for the horse, and when I get back to the farm I owe the farmer ten cents, besides working a week for nothing.. O, it is all right. I don't kick, but this ends farming for Hennery. I know' when I have got enough of an: easy life on a farm. I prefer;|t hard life, breaking stones on the streets, to an easy dreamy life on a farm." ''They did play it on y<ju, didn't they," said the grocery man. "But wasn't the old deacon a good man to work for?" "Good man nothin'," saitf .the boy, as he took, up a piece of horse radish and began to grate it on the inside of his rough hand. "I tell you there's a heap of difference in a deacon in Sunday-school, telling about sowing wheat and tares,and a deacon out on a farm in hurrying season, when there is hay to get in and wheat to harvest ail at the same time. I went out to the farm Sunday evening with the deacon and his wife," and-they couldn't talk too much about the nice time we would have, and the fun; but the deacon changed more than forty degrees iii five jumped out of the wagon and pulled off his coat, and let his wife climb out over the wheel, and yelled to the hired girl to bring out the milk pail, and told me to fly around and unharness the horse and' throw down a lot of hay for all the work animals, and then told me to run down to the pasture and drive up a lot of cows. The pasture was half a mile away, and the cows were scattered around in the woods, and the mosquitoes were thick, and I got all covered with mud and burrs,; and stung with thistles, and when I got1 the cattle near to the house, the old dea-: con yelled to me that I was slower than molasses in winter, and then I took a club and tried to hurry the cows,and he yelled at me to stop hurrying, 'cause I would retard the flow of milk. By gosh, I was mad. I asked for a mosquito bar to put over me next time I went after the cows, and the people all laughed at me, and when I sat down on the fence to scrape the mud off my Sunday pants, the deacon yelled like he does in the revival, only he said, "Come, come, procrastination is the thief of time. You get up and hump yourself and go and feed the pigs." He was so darn mean that I could not help throwing a burdock burr against the side of the cow he was milking, and it struck her right in the flank on the other side from where the deacon was. Well, you'd a died to see that cow jump up and blat. All four of her feet were off the ground at a time, and I guess the most of them hit the deacon on liis Sunday vest, and the rest liif the milk pail, and the cow backed against the fence and bellered, and the deacon was all covered with milk and,cow hair, and he got up and throwed the three-legged stool at the cow and hit her on the horn and it glanced off and hit me on the pants, just as I went over the fence to feed the pigs. I didn't know a deacon could talk so sassy at a cow, and come so near swearing without actually saying cuss words. Well, I lugged swill until I was homesick to my stomach, and then I had to clean off horses, and go to the neighbors about a mile away to borrow a lot of rakes to use the next day. I was so tired I almost cried, and then I had to draw two barrels of water with a. well bucket, to cleanse for washing the, next day, and by that time I wanted to die. It was most nine o'clock, and! began to think about supper, when the deacon said all they had was bread and milk for supper Sunday night, and I rasseled with a tin basin of skim milk and some old back number bread, and wantej?.. to go to bed, but the deacon wanted tb know if I was heathen enough to want to go to bed/ '%out evening prayers. Therj was no -^^«^ung I was less mashed ^ than evening^n&yers about that minui Us AU About the World's Fair. Jbut I. had to take, a Dray loonngg oOnn ttoopp ooff 'tthhaatt sskkiimm mm ilk,-and I gm it curdled the milk, for I hadn't been in1 bed more than half an hour before I the worst colic a boy ever had, and 3 thought I should die alone up in that! garret, on the floor, with nothing to make my last hours pleasant but some rats playing with ears of seed corn on the floor, and mice running through some dry pea pods. But, O, how different the deacon talked in the evening devotions from what he did when the cow was galloping on him in the barn yard. Well, I got through the colic and was just getting to sleep when the deacon yelled for me to get up and hustle down stairs. I looked at the clock and it was just three o'clock in the morning just the time pa comes home and goes to bed in town; when he is running a political campaign. Well, sir, I had to jump from one tiling to another from three o'clock in the morning till nine at night, pitching hay, driving reaper, raking and binding, shocking wheat, hofeing corn, and everything, and I never got a kind word. I spoiled my clothes, and I think another week would make a pirate of me. I tell you, you think more of such a man as the deacon if you don't work for him, but only see him when he comes to town, and you hear him sing 'Heaven in my Home,' through his nose. Heaven is farther from his home than any place I ever heard of. He would be a good mate on a Mississippi river steamboat if he could swear, and I guess he could soon learn. Now, you take these cabbages and give me ninety cents, and I will go home and borrow ten cents to make up the dollar, and send my chum baok with the horse and wagon and my resignation. I was not cut out for a farmer. - Talk about fishing, the only fish I saw' Was a salt white fish we had for breakfast one morning, which was salted by Noah, in the ark," and while the grocery man was unloading the cabbages the boy went off to look for his chum, and later the two boys were seen driving off towards the farm with two-fish wagon Two farmers were not long since dis cussing their local paj>ei|One thought it had too many advertisements in it. The other replied: "In my opinion the advertisements are far from being the least valuable part of it. Hook them over carfefully and save at least five times the cost of the paper each week through the business advantages I get from them." Said the other: "I believe you are right— I know that they pay me w-ell and; rather think it is not good taste to find fault with the advertisements after ali/';; Those' men have the right idea of the matter. It pays any man with a family to take a. good local paper for the s'ake o£the advertisements if nothing more. '|£^d if business men fail to give farmer^Wchanoe to read advertisements in the local paper, they are blind to their own interests, td say the least of it, <,r* with me,*' saida perous farmer. -ff'You have n< me to your place of" poles sticking out-.the hind end :of the ron. . v*" Provision has been made for the transportation of 60,000 people an hour between the city and the grounds. \: The boat in which Grace Darling rescued a shipwrecked crew is on exhibition in the transportation building. A contribution box attached to it calls for help for disabled English sailors. ; Mrs. French Sheldon, the African explorer, shows a fine collection of clothing, leathers, shells and cooking and eating utensils which she gathered during her Jtrip through the dark continent. The children who go to the fair will ihave a grand time. There is a large play ;ground constructed for them on a roof fenclosed with a wire netting so that they will not fall off. Butterflies and birds are flying about there, toys of all nations are on exhibition and a delightful kindergarten is near by. Upon the roof of the woman's building •is a very fine garden from which a. fine view may be had of the fair. There the visitor may sip tea and listen to the strains of a woman's orchestra. Sixty-four gondoliers especially selected Jjy the municipality of Venice, Italy, ply the 20 gondolas on the lagoons. The little old locomotive, De Witt Clinton, and its two carriages, which piade tlieir initial trip^ from Albany to Schenectady on Aug. 9, 1831, were carried l» the fair by the New York Central railroad, and received an ovation all along the route. ', A train of mahogany palace cars is shown by the Canadian Pacific railroad. Every kind of water craft is shown, from primitive dug-outs to a section of an ocean steamer. A magnificent collection of models of ships of all kinds is shown by British shipbuilders. These models include many famous war ships. Carriages are shown costing §10,000 each. i In the bicycle department, the fittings alone cost over $100,000. ; A special building and special attention have been bestowed on mining, and next to our country, Germany has the largest exhibit in this line. The whole process is shown. Two or three carloads of blue earth -from Cape Colony, Africa, containing fdiinionds and worth §200,000, will be lfed over during the fair to extract ems, that the public may see the re are 18,000 exhibits illustrating all aluables that are taken from the at 20 it. wide called the.

A model in salt of Bartbpldi's statue of liberty has been contributed by a salt firm. The ruins from Yucatan will show what a high degree of civilization existed on this continent before the arrival of Columbus. The architecture of many of the casts is,very similar to that used now on the trust company and bank build-ings. It will cost an extra fee to go through the model of the homes of the cliff dwellers, the builder having put the structure up at his own expense. This, with the Esquimaux village, to which an admission fee of 25c is asked, are to be the only money making schemes of the ethnological department. Articles gathered by Lieut.

LESSON VIII, SECOND QUARTER, INTERNATIONAL SERIES, MAY 21. Text of the Lesson, Prov. xxlii, 20-35. Memory Verses, 29-32 — Golden Text, Prov. xx, 1—Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. 29. "Who hath woe? Who hath sorro'w? Who hath contentions? Who hath babbling? Who hath wounds without cause? Who hath redness of eyes?" The Golden Text tells us that "wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging, and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." Yet there are fools without number who seem to prefer the woe and sorrow and contention. At least they prefer the wine and strong drink, even though it bring these things. The woes of Scripture against those who have to do with wine are not few. "Woe to them that rise up early in the morning that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night till wine inflame them." "Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink." "Woe unto him thatgiv-eth his neighbor drink, that puttest thy bottle to him and maketh him drunken also" (Isa. v, 11,22; Hab. ii, 15). "Then it is plainly written that drunkards shall not inherit the kjngdom of God (I Cor. vi, 10), BO for this life and the life to come it is naught but woe for those who are slaves of Btrong drink. But thank God for deliverance, even for those who are bound with Buch chains, for the drunkards and vile people of Corinth had, many of them, experienced the power of the grace of God and become washed, sanctified and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God (1 Cor. vi, 11). 30. "They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine." This is the answer to the previous verse. Drunkenness is invariably associated with trouble. In verse 31 it is said that "the drunkard shall come to poverty." The story of drunken Nabal, and of Elah, who was slain while he was drunken, are among the sad records of the Bible (I Sam. xxv, 36, 38; I Kings xvi, 8-10). But perhaps more sad is the story of righteous Noah, who forgot himself and his high calling and became drunken, thus bringing great humiliation to himself and one of his sons and giving great occasion to the enemy to blaspheme (Gen. ix, 20-25). Worse still is the story of David making Uriah drunk (II Sam. xi, 13). Surely every man at his best estate is altogether vanity, but what can be said of a drunken man except that he has descended lower than the brutes? 31. "Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his color in the cup, when it moveth itself aright." The R. V. has for the last clause, "When it go-eth down smoothly." Wine has its attractions and its pleasures, but they are wholly on the side of self and sensuality when carried to excess. There is no manner of use in making a joke of Paul's advice to Timothy to use a little wine for his stomach's Bake (I Tim. v, 23), nor in saying that the wine of the New Testament was wholly un-fermented, for how could unfermented wine burst wineskins? But there is use in letting the word of God stand, and in all humility and teachableness take it to mean what it says in its plain, literal sense, un less it is clearly.a figure or a symbol.; Hap- VP thoyft ivhatp sftpniircto aradt^yiue;- ppy those who prefer to let even ^meat alone, if need be, rather than be a stumbling block; happy'the church that prefers to use an unfermented wine at the communion rather than put temptation before any weak one. Happiest of all those who can truly say, "Not I, but Christ, who liv-eth in me." 32. "At the last it biteth like a serpent and stingeth like an adder." It is on the principle of "he that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption" (GaL vi, 8). "For the mind of the flesh is death" (Rom. viii, 6, R. V.). The flesh will manifest itself in greater or less degree in some or all of the works named in Gal. v, 19-21, and the record is "that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." If a man is simply a natural man, a man after the flesh, never born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God, but must in due time experience the second death, which is the lake of fire (Rev. xx, 15, 14). Then shall he indeed know to his eternal sorrow the serpent's bite and adder's sting. Foretastes of hell are in mercy given even in this life (let any drunkard testify) if perchance men may repent and so escape the lake of fire. 33. "Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things." Woman in Scripture is the type of the very best and the very worst. The church is spoken of as a chaste virgin, espoused to Christ, and as a bride adorned for her husband (II Cor. xi, 2; Rev. xxi, 2), while all that is vile and false is described' as a woman seated upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy (Rev. xvii, 3). The strange woman is described in verses 27, 28, of this chapter, and more fully in chapters v, 3-5; vi, 24-26. The way to be saved from such destruction is to give heed to verse 26, "My son, give nfe thine heart and let thine heart observe my ways." Not only do we need to be kept from uttering perverse things, but we need to be kept from foolish thoughts, for the thought of foolishness is sin (chapter xxiv, 9). And since we are not sufficient to think anything as of ourselves, how utterly helpless is our condition, but our sufficiency is of God (II Cor. iii, 5). 34. "Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea or its he that lieth upon the top of a mast." Dangerous positions surely. Such a one might say, indeed, what David thought was true of him,- self, "There is but a step between me and death" (I Sam. xx, 3). When we know that death shall usher UB into the presence of the King, that to die is gain and to depart is to be with Christ, then indeed one has no cause .to fear that enemy. But if one's sorrows have already begun through wine and women, on the edge of what a fearful precipice does such a one stands But the figure is that of one asleep in dan ger. This is more fearful still, for if one is only awake there is some hope of escape, but what Mope can there be for Samson asleep in th4* lap of Delilah? ' 35. "They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten uie, and I felt it not. When shall I awake? I will seek it yet again." Refusing to receive correction, they make their faces harder than a rock and refuse to return (Jer. v, 8). They say come and we will fill ourselves with strong drink, and to morrow shall be as this day and much more abundant (Isa. lvi, 12). Of such it will doubtless become true, '"He that, being often reproved, hardeneth his neck shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy" (Prov. xxix, 1). And yet God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. He has no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but cries imploringly, Turn ye, turn ye; why will ye die (II P<*. iii, % %ek,_xxxtti, 11)? How deceitful and desperately wicked to Inhuman heart! .
