Nearly every person wastes enough in twenty or thirty years, which, if saved

and carefully invested, would make a family quite independent , but the principle

of small savings has been lost sight of in the general desire to become wealthy.

HOW TO JUDGE THE WEATHER,

t.

The colors of the sky at different times are a wonderful guidance. Not only £j

does a clear sunset presage fair weather, but there are other tints which speak wi ?g '-'

clearness and accuracy. A bright yellow sky in the evening indicates wind-, p,

yellow, wet ; a neutral gray constitutes a favorable sign in the morning, and an

unfavorable one in the evening. The clouds are full of meaning in themselves. If

they are soft, undefined, and feathery, the weather will be fine ; if the edges are

hard, sharp, and definite, it will be foul. Generally speaking, any deep, unusual

hues betoken wind or rain; while more quiet and moderate tints bespeak fair

weather. Simple as these maxims are, the Board of Trade have throught fit to

publish them for the use of seafaring men.

Her sable mantle doth unfold,

And with a wide extended hand

Spreads over the entire land Darkness, at last.

Within a cottage poor and plain, With wretched roof, and broken pane,

Clasped to her breast in anguish wild ;

Alone !—alone !

Nay ! not alone ; there's One above

Who listens, with an ear of love

To the poor wife's pathetic cry,

" Oh ! Father, help us or we die."

Ah ! bitter moan.

The old—old tale so often told

Of wretchedness, it doth unfold

Pages of want, and sin, and shame,

Written above thy cruel name

" Intemperance."

" Oh ! Father, seek him—hear my prayer,

Stretch forth Thine arm, and do Thou

Take from his neck this cruel chain [there

And give him to his own again

Father, once more."
