God says: "I want to jj^akiii sqinethiii}? vei-y useful out of you. ' Ybb shall be somethiug' to hew with and something- to build with. It is a practical process throiig-h which I am putting- you. ' Yes, my Christian friends, we want more tools in the Church of God; uot more wedg-es to split with. We have enoug-h of these. Not  more bores with which to drill. We have too many bores. What we really want is keen, sharp, well-tempered axes, and if there be any other way of making them in the hot furnace, and on the hard anvil, and under the ueavy hammer,I do not know what it is. Kemember that if'tiod bring any kind of chastisement upon v'ou it is only to make you useful. Do not sit down discouraged and say: "1 have no more rea.son for living. 1 wish 1 were dead."" Oho there never was so much reason for your living as now! I>y this ordeal you have been consecrated a priest of the most liigli God. Go out ami do yottr wdiole work for the Master.  Again, thei'e is eomfort in the thought that all our troubles are a revelation. Have you ever thought of it in that connection'.' The man who has never been through chastisement is ig-norant about a thousand things iu his soul he oug-ht to know. For instance. here is a niiin wlio pi'ides himself on his cheerfulness of ciiaracter. He has no patience with anybody wdio is depressed iu spirits. Oh! it is ea.sy for him to be cheerful, with his line house, his lilled wardrobe and AVtdl-strung instruments of music, and tap-estrieti parlor, and plenty of money iu the bank waiting for some permanent investment. It is easy fi.)r him to be cheerful. lint suppose hi.s rorL\in_' _L;-<.>es to i^it'ees am.1 his house I^'oes dosvn nnder the .-iheri IT's; h-aminer, and tlie oanlis will not li-ave -an^'thiny-to do witli hi.s paper. Suppose those Ijeople who were oiiee eieyantly enti-i--Laiued at his table ^'et .so shorl-.siM-hted that they can not reco.<;ni/.e him upon the street. How then? Is it so easy lo be cheerful? It is (.'asy to be cheerful in the hoiiu» aftv*!" the day'.s woi'k i.s done, aud tiic gas is turned on and the hoUsC is lull of roiii]jing little ones. Ibii .suppose the piano is sliuL because I he lingers that played on it will no more touch the keys, and tlie (diildish voiee thai aslced so manv ([Ueslions w ill ask no more.

Xever yield to gloom and sadness; Angels sing no -minor chord;  Saints shouifl shout in notes of gladness, Hallelujah to the Lord!  Saintly tonfiues shotild cease to borro-w Strains that only tell of sin;  To the pure the lays of sorrow Should not pain the soul within.  When the harp of'Zion stringing Gives its voice a cheerful chord,  Join the choir of Heaven in singing Hallelujah to the Loid!  despondent over troubles? That but deeper makes the smart;  Mourning-, pain and sorrow doubles, Lays new burdens on the heart.  'Tis no sin, he merry hearted: Holy psaltm.i give key and chord—  Thou wilt siiiir o'er griefs departed— Hallelujah to the Lord!

If we love people they will love u«, especially if Me love them for their own sake, with no ulterior selfish thought. More faith in men g-reatly helps more love; and so does more pi^-ty. Where we eau Ijardly respect we have compassion. Where complacency is impossible benevolence riiay strive. Devotion to God and one's fellows seeui es bliss, lleiiee it is rig-lit for a person to say: "1 \vill strive to liave tlie very happiest life that any man ever lived."

"Wood of Genesee county, Aiich., writing iu The Comitry Gtentle-xnan, says there is more profit in raising turkeys than in almost any other branch of poultry keeping. The young are, however, exceedingly delicate, and cou-siderabla knowledge of their needs is necessary iu order to be successful in carrying them throngh the first few •weeks of their existeuce. Once safely-past this period they are extxemely hardy, disease rarely attacking them after the red spots begin to appear npou their heads.  The best way to manage iu order to get the incst eggs from the turkey hens ili to gather the eggs carefully every daj* from the ucsts when they begin iayiug, and this for two reasous—the eggs are apt to Lecouio chilled by exposure to the cold air of early spring nights, and secondly tho ben will continue to lay lunger than she otherwise would if they aro removed. The iirst clutch of eggs ehov.ld be i^iven to cGnimcu hens to hatch, and the turkey will after a few dtiys begin to lay again. These eggs she shouhi Le allowed to sit upon.  Four weeks will be required to hatch or.i; the littlo poult.s, aud as fast as they break tho shells they should be removed (alitr they get tiry) from the nest to a ba.dvct by tlie kitchea tiro tluriug the day, returning theiii to the nest; at { ni,-;hr. \Viu.ii all are otit, remove the in ;i ai.d dusr her leatina's thoroughly wili) pyrethrum, hidtiing her by the ferk iuad liowu. during the proce.^s, to iiJsiirt' ciio pow;lcr"s reaching the body, 'j'hts tiusting should have heeu done once or twice during the period of iu-cuiation f,i make sure the heu is not tronhled with lieo.
