ijfK The Summer Rain.
Tears of heaven, happy tears, as if
the glad sun had laughed until they
streamed from his ruddy checks in
pure wantonness of joy.
Each drop that kisses the velvety
checks of the earth is bainf for a hun
dred wounds, solace for a thousand
ungratified longings. Aud blue eyed
June will smile all the brighter on the
morrow; the grass-growu valleys will
shine all the greener, and the dancing
rills will frolic all the merrier for the
falling of the summer raiu.
Poor, laiut-hearted mortality that
is forever worrying and dreading that
the earth and sky and running water
will not afford sufficient material for
the sustenance of these weakening
bodies, raises a thankful eye to heav
en and wonders if there will be
enough to make thu corn grow.
But the flowers, and the birds, and
the faithful bees never stop to ques
tion. They simply trust in God and
revel in the glorious gift of the sum
mer rain. Thev know that He con
trolleth the sunshine aud the south
wind, aud holdeth the waters in the
hollow of his hand. So, to them, the
enjoyment is not of avarice, not of
half-satisfied wistfulness mixed with
doubt, but the pure and simple real
ization of the promise that He vouch
safed them when the corner stone of
the world was laid.
Tears of heaven, happy tears of
gladness! Tears that arc caught in
the hand of the spirit of joy and flung
far and wide over wood, field aud
meadow to bless and to brighten the
earth and those that dwell therein!—
“See here,” said a big man, in
angry voice, as he rushed into a cheap
clothing store, “you are a swindler—a
rank, unmitiegated swindler, without
any principle or sentiment of honesty.
That’s what you are.”
“My vrendt, vot is dc madder?”
nsked the merchant in a conciliating
tone. “You have no right to call me
“I haven’t! Hook at this coat that
I gave you $8 for. It’s all pulling
apart, and look at the vest aud these
pants. They look like a cyclone had
put ’em on to go out west in.”
“Und for dot you call me swindler?”
“You bet I do.”
“My vrendt, you forget one ting.”
“What is that?”
“You should nefer shudge a man
by his cloding.”
