The Roll Call in Heaven. An incident is related by a chaplain who was in the army. The hospital tents had been filling up fast and the wounded men had been brought to the rear.

Among the number was a young man mortally wounded, and not able to speak. It was near midnight and many a loved one from our homes lay sleeping on the battle-field that sleep that knows no waking, until Jesus shall call for them. The surgeons had been their rounds of duty, and for a moment all was quiet. Suddenly this young man, before speechless, calls, in a clear, distinct voice, Here." The surgeon hastened to his side and asked, what he wished. Nothing," said he, they are calling the roll in heaven, and I was answering to my name." He turned his head and was gone gone to join the great army whose uniform is washed Avhite in the blood of the Lamb.

MERCHANT TAILORS, 1S9 Kansas A Topeka, Kas. CLOTHS, Beavers and Vestings. octf tie troop of children might have been seen coming out of the door on a bright sunny morning. Their faces seemed as happy as the robin and humming birds, that filled the groves with music, and there were many other birds of such gay feathers and lovely song that they seemed half way between the flowers and the angels. Among the happy faces and light innocent hearts, there was one sweet boy, whom his mother dearly loved.

Strangers used to turn and look upon his sunny eyes and dimpled cheeks, but he loved everybody, because everybody loved him, and never once thought of his beauty. His mother one day found a call to visit the city, and after dinner she kissed each darling, and left them in the care of their kind aunt. Her friends delayed her return until the sun was gone down, and the little birds and fowls had gone to rest in the trees, and the children to their trundle-bed. But their little hearts, so full of play and fun, were not for the first time left to go to sleep without their dear ra's good-night kiss. Little Susan could not see why ma should stay when it when it was dark.

Little Emma didn't think Aunt Margaret knew how to put them to sleep. After prattling about many things their little peepers would not stay "buttoned" as little Jonny calls sleep, Susan began to fret and shed a few tears. Her brother heard her sobbing, and tried to soothe his little sister. Ma will be home soon, and Aunt Margaret is in the next room, and she will watch till ma comes home." But the little weeper, the longer she sobbed the worse she felt. Her brother lost his patience.

Why, Susy, do you cry Don't you have Emma and Aunt Margaret and you have Johnny and the angels." This brave little boy had faith in the holy angels. I don't know where he learned it, but the Bible says the Angels of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him." This boy's noble heart had no fear of any harm from any evil beings. This illustrates the Savior's words on the new birth, when He took a child and preached a great sermon from a very young text. The mind of Christ and of this dear boy was free from fear. Perfect love casteth out fear." P.

"My brother is 'as polite to me as any one else, when I go out with him," said a girl proudly to a companion. What a reflection on his manners at home A sister will, perhaps, accidentally knock over some of the tools with which her brother is busy. An apology involuntarily rises to her lips, but she stifles it on considering that it is only Jack and all the satisfaction he is offered for disordered plans is a blunt Oh Angry reproaches are sure to follow. You are real ugly, Jack, to talk so about such a thing you know I didn't mean it," is the equally angry rejoinder. Wly did she not say so Two words would have saved all the trouble.

Want of politeness is the cause of more quarrelling between brothers and sisters than anything else. In their play, children are constantly meeting with little accidents, for which they should be taught to apologize. I have seen the cheeks of a child flush with anger, his eyes flash, and a little hand raised to strike the unfortunate breaker of a toy, when, as if by magic, the blow was arrested with these words, "Excuse mc, I did not mean to."

209 Kansas Avenue. A certain man had a wayward son. His conduct brought down his father to a premature grave. On the day of his funeral the son was pres cut, saw unmoved the pale face of his father in the coffin, stood unmoved on the brink of the grave. The family retraced their steps.

Their father's will and testament was read in that testament was the name of the undutiful son. As his name was read his heart heaved with emotion, his eyes were bedewed with tears, and he was heard to say, I did not think my father would have so kindly thought of me in his will." In the family of Christ, some of us in reading His Testament, and thinking upon His great love and marvellous gifts, feel our unprofitableness and unwor-thiness, and are filled with contrition and gratitude, with love and wonder.
