Bev. T. 0. BOYKIN, State S- S. Evangelist, Ed
Some children one dav who were playing
With curious bl. cks of wood,
Determined to put up a building,
The very best they could,
And I, who among them was standing,
Thought out a parable,
And showed how a character forming,
To this was parallel.
First, of course, they laid a foundation,
Laying it sure and strong,
For they knew if that should be faulty,
The rest would all be wrong.
So Jesut ‘i trusty foundation
By God for you is made,
And never can men lay another
Than that which has been laid.
Then next, they thought that a frame-work
Their dainty hands must form,
That the tenant thus might be sheltered
From wintry cold and storm.
And i said—the safest protection
Against life’s fretful care.
What Jesus himself recommended,
Watching w<. uld be, and prayer,
Then of course there had to be windows,
And doors were thought about,
That the rooms all through might be lighted,
And men go in and out.
So—take for the windows of spirit,
Let your doors be truth always spoken
In firm intt grity.
Then, they said, a roof must be added,
The finished work to crown,
*To flash in the rays of the morning
With sunl’ght pouring down.
Ami lave is the crown of perfection
To characters of earth,
Reflecting the 1 canty of heaven,
With pure and holy worth!

JACK'S NEW YEAR'S FIND.
BY FANNIE E. NEWBERRY.
Inside the window is a dining-room,
with a table sparkling in glass and sil
ver, and aglow with light—a bright
fire in the grate, pictures of game and
fruit upon the wall, and a side-board
a-glitter with silver and wax-light. A
laughing, chattering family sit about
the table —there is Uncle Ben at the
head, and Aunt Mollie at the foot,
while Harry, Lou and Jack sit promis
cuously between. The servants come
and go, the family laugh, talk, and eat
in perfect content, never dreaming of
the scene without. There, two pale,
pinched, little faces are pressed against
the ornamented gratings ; two hungry,
wistful eyes gaze in; two thinly-clad
little figures shiver in the bitter wind,
as Tom and Trotty hug closer, and
whisper together: “My! Just see
that pudding, now! Ain’t it grand?
I can just count the raisins in it!
Oh! Trotty, I’m awful hungry, aren’t
Trotty sighs pathetically, and press
es closer to the window which bars
her from all that warmth and luxu
“Where’s we going to sleep to
night?” she asks, looking anxiously
about—“lt’s going to be colder, I
“I’ll tell you, Trotty, let’s stay right
here in under the front steps. It's
nice and warm in there, and I believe
that big fire in the grate will last
all night. If they don’t put the
curtains down we can come and look
at it when we get very cold. It’ll be
“Yes,” said Trotty, patiently, but
she thought, “It looks warm, to be
sure, but I would just like to feel it!”
aud she gave another involuntary shiv
• Then the family left the room for
the parlors above; the table was clear
ed, and the lights put out; only the
fire still glowed redly through the
gloom, and the curtains were not
drawn. Tom and Trotty crept under
the steps, curling up close together,
and the warmly-nested children with
in did not sleep sweeter than they.
“Happy New Year! Happy New
Year!” whooped Jack, like a young
savage, the next morning; but as he
hear! only sleepy groans in reply, he
concluded to go out doors for a run be
fore breakfast. Down to the basement
door he clattered, opened it with a
rush, and jumped back with a cry of
astonishment. “ Gracious ! what’s
What seemed to be-a bundle of rags
raised itself, and showed a boy’s pale
face, and two great eyes, heavy with
sleep—but, however rude his awaken

—ducking his head, he said, pleasant
“Mornin’ sir! Happy New Year!”
Jack laughed, but jumped again as
another bundle of rags, in the gloom
under the steps, began to uncoil, and
a little girl, paler and more pinched
than the first bundle, stood up and
smiled a good morning.
“Well, I declare!” was all Jack could
utter, as he looked from one to the

about accepting, so when Aunt Mollie
came down to see how breakfast was
getting on, she found the three chat

grate, as if they had been friends for
“Goodness! Jack—” said she,
“what have you here?”
“A boy and girl, auntie, and they’re
awful hungry. I’ve invited them to

clean up a little,” said Jack all in a

breath, adding in a whisper, as he
stole an arm around her neck.
“There’s that suit of mine that’s got
the grease-spot on the pants —can’t t
Tom have that? And Trotty might ;
take the blue merino of Lou’s that is i
so short for her, couldn't she, auntie?” '
And Mollie hadn’t a child in the |
world, and big-hearted Jack was her
favorite among all the nephews and j
nieces, so she only hesitated a moment I
then turning to the little strangers, I
“Come, children! I’ll see what
can be done for you!”
When, at last, all assembled about ;
the smoking breakfast-table, there I
were two guests present who looked I
pale, but as neat and respectable as ■
one could wish. All were too well- ]
bred to ask questions, but Uncle Ben I
gave a good-natured grunt; dainty ■
Lou looked astonishment at Harry ;
ami he bowed with an extra flourish i
to the strangers, who replied with a
“Happy New Year!”
But didn’t Tom and Trotty enjoy
that breakfast though! And when
the others saw their hunger they for- [
got their own appetites and just help
ed them to everything on the table.
But better was to follow, for they were
asked to stay all day, and Jack was
sent on some mysterious errand, while
they lingered at the table. But when
they finally gathered in the library for
prayers, Jack sat there beaming, and
the piano was crowded with parcels. !
Uncle Ben read Paul’s talk with the j
elders at Miletus, that morning, and |
when he came to the beautiful words .
of Jesus, “It is more blessed to give
than to receive,” Jack so far forgot
himself as to exclaim aloud, “I declare
that’s so!” This made Aunt Mollie
say “shoo!” under her breath, at which
the children tittered, and Uncle Ben
drew down his mouth, as if afraid it
might curl the wrong way.
Os course the parcels on the piano
were New Year’s gifts, in which Tom
and Trotty freely shared, and oh! the
happy day that followed! Then, when
night came, no one had the heart to
turn them again into the street; so a
room was made ready, and Aunt Mol
lie soon decided that she would never
let them go. They are good and grate
ful children, and are already planning
next year’s holiday’s, when Harry, Lou
and Jack shall come to the city again,
and Tom says:
“They’re all splendid, Trotty, but
you know Jack found us, and I can’t
help liking him best!” To which
Trotty cheerfully assents.
Praying and doing.—“ Bless the poor
children who haven’t got any bed to
night,” prayed a little boy just before he
lay down in his nice warm cot on a cold
As he rose from his knees, his mother
said, “You have just asked God to bless
the poor children; what will you do to
The boy thought a moment. “Why,
if I had a hundred cakes, enough for all
the family, I would give them some.”
“But you have no cakes; what then
aie you willing to do ?”
“When I get money enough to buy
all things I want, and have some over,
I’ll give them some.”
“But you haven’t enough money to
buy all you want, and perhaps never
will have; what will you do to bless
the poor now?”
“1 will give them some bread.”
“You have no bread—the bread is
“Then I could earn money and buy a
“Take this things as they now are—
you know what you have that is your
own; what are you willing to do to help
the poor ?”
The boy thought again. “I’ll give them
half my money. 1 have seven pennies;
I’ll give them four. Woudn’t that be
What did the clock say?—The clock
upon the tower of a neighboring church
tolled forth, slowly and solemnly, the
knell of the departed hour.
As the last sound died away, Willie,
who was sitting on the carpet at his
mother’s feet, lifted his head and, look
ing earnestly in her face, asked: —
“Mother, what did the clock say?”
“To me,’’ said his mother sadly, “it
seemed to say, ‘Gone, gone, gone, gone!’ ”
“What, mother? what has gone?”
“Another hour, my son.”
“What is'an hour, mother?’’
"A white-winged messenger from our
Father in heaven, sent by him to inquire
of you, and of me, what we are doing,
what we are saying, what we are think
ing and feeling.”
“Where is it gone, mother?”
“Back to him who sent it, bearing on
its wings, that were so pure and white
when it came, a record of all our thoughts,
words and deeds, while it was with us.
Were they all such as our Father could
receive with a smile of approbation?”
Reader, what record are the hours, as
they come and go, bearing up on high of
Many a mother has wept over the sins
of her child, little dreaming that while
she pursued her round of idle pleasures
her child was taking its first lesson in sin
from the example of a vicious nurse. The
truth is parents take upon themselves
too many unnecessary burdens; and con
sider themselves bound by duty to per
form too many tasks which are of much
less conseouence than the teaching and
training of their children. The father
hat; his trade or profession, and his few
leisure hours he must spend in social
pleasure. The mother has her household
cares and the comfort of her family to
study, aud besides this, there is much
time to be devoted to fancy work, visitors
and am usements of one kind and another.
Her children are mere secondary consid
erations, and depend upon the kindness
of hirelings. Their dresses may be mir
acles of puffing, rutiles and embroidery,
but what does that count wL«u their
minds are dwarfed through neglect? Her
house may be the model of neatness, her
bread excel that of all her neighbors, her
jellies and preserves enough to tempt the
most fastidious ; but if in ail this, she has
kept aloof from her child, has chilled his
heart towards her, what does it count?

DOES A WOMAN
SOONER THAN A MAN.
This question is easily answered. Put a
Iman ata wa-h-tub; lei him get heated from
the hot sud> until even pore is opened; then
lei him stand over the filthy steam that
conies from scalding and boiling clothes that
are full of sweat, and his 1 eulih would soon
break down ; besides this, let him, perspir
ing, go out into the open air from the hot
room, with his clothes wet, to hang up the
clothes; yet this terrible ordeal is what nine
tenths oi iht women of our land haw to go
through fifty two times every year. These
few facts readily explain why so many wo
men sufl'er from colds, rheumatism, weak
nerws and neuralgia, and look old while yet
young in years. Fortunately this trouble
can be avoided; the Seif-operating PERFECT
WASHt' R saves all this. It will fit in any
kind of boiler or the old fashioned wash-pot,
so common m the South. It will do all the
family washing better than it can be done in
any other way ; in less than half the lime it
takes by hand, aud with one half the soap,
without any chemicals or washing prepara
tions, ami w ithout the exhausting labor and
ruinous wear and tear of garments as by the
wash-board, or as by the different pr< cesses
of pounding, squeezing amt dashing the very
life out oi them. The operatb n of the ma
chine consists in rapidly and continuously
forcing all the hot water contained in iht
boiler from the bottom to the surface,
through the discharge pipe, at the rate of 15
gallons per minute, when in full operation,
and then, by the force of suetion drawing it
downwaid through the soiled linen,causing
it to search out aud eradicate every atom of
dirt; leaving the articles, after rinsing, thor
oughly cleansed and purified, ami having
the pure whiteness of new goods imparted t<»
them. The PERFECT WASHER is espu ially
valuable for washing all kinds of fragile fab
