Yet a moment s thought won disclose the fact that it has a deep and . It covers comprehensive ground. It possesses Foree Anil Beauty and has a marked degree of pertinence. Herein we discover he Root and essence of us highest social philosophy and the Golden Axis upon which All religious teaching revolves. It binds heart to heal i and mind to mind in he fullness of a generous sympathy and Lias a i e influence upon the soul. It purifies and Ciales the thoughts enlarges tie heart Sweet ens to Tai temper the sentiments and into the nature the breath of kindly ii in Ami a warm glow of Beneficence. It gives Ibe being a of Ever Active tend Crikis Ami expands it with Broad fraternal Charity.

In respect to the goodly offices of love As Well As in regard of Otlmor things the example of one May shed its Light another s path who May be guided its cheerful Ray.

That Char Acter which is imbued with this genial and pre Cious Quality commands the Gulmi motion of Mankind. Depraved indeed must be that nature which is not sensitive to its enchanting Power. Love has been called the Triumph of the unselfish Over the selfish part of our nature we May that those who have most affection have least thought of self.

Almost invariably one.

In or Der to understand to whom Liis face belongs Ami the reason of its frequent repetition it will be necessary to clip a Page from Murillo s life. About the time that Murillo began to paint in his own studio there lived in his native town of Seville an andalusian lady of High rank and wealth. This lady was not Over is years of age was a cultivated and ardent admirer of Art and had taken a decided fancy to Iurillo and Iii pictures. The artist himself was poor timid comparatively unknown and yet feeling even then the Power that Lay undeveloped in him. That he loved the Dona Beatrix de cab Rera sol mayor ardently is not to be wondered at when we consider that her figure was Fine and slender and that her eyes were Large dark Blue almost Violet with Liat Spanish fire in them that can Flash out condensed Sunshine or Entrance by the loveliness of fathomless Depths with Long dark lashes a Clear White forehead and checks kissed to a Lovely Bloom by the soft zephyrs or Spain a Rich flow of Light Brown it to be wondered at that Murillo abjectly surrendered his timid heart to this Anda Usi ii Beauty slip was his Patron. She aided his studies she sat for Liu Madonnas she loved him too but she never let this conflict with his advancement. Lie was Yott in he had no Reliance in himself he must go out into the world beyond the narrow limits of Seville and study higher Art until he could com Mand All his Genius and so when the time came she insisted that lie should go notwithstanding that he pleaded with tears in his eyes that he might stay near her. Hur Iuo s reluctance to go to England was More than half occasioned by the fact that an old acquaintance of his Pedro de Moya an artist of renown had recently returned from Van Eyke s studio to Seville had taken up Liis abode there in one of the palaces and had fell desperately in love with the Beautiful Beatrix de Cabrera. But Murillo went and studied hard and be came famous and returned with honors and commissions and married his Lovely Patron the lady do Cabrera. And now does it appear strange that the face appears in Many of his virgins that the face is a Lovely face a Spanish face the face of a Sweet girl whose every Fea Ture whether it be cold or repelling or tend winning is known to him by an actual experience love.

Did you Ever Inow one a correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette tells a very amusing anecdote about a former City editor of the enquirer named Bennett which illustrates a phase of Pris a which was common enough at the West when Artemis Ward was a local on a Cleve land newspaper and Mark Twain a gatherer of River news up the Ohio. Whon news was scarce Bennett was in the habit of inventing extraordinary items for his department a favorite re source being to Inake children fall from the Aud 1 no of the Newport ferry Joat into the River and to have them rescued by his acquaintances. He had honoured one or. Kell Nui Celia Enrichi s first husband several times in this Way when the fictitious Savior of drowning innocents be came tired of the joke and at last called at the enquirer office and demanded that it should not be repeated. Lie was assured that his request would be complied with and so it was in its letter but hardly in its spirit for the next Day the enquirer contained a paragraph to the effect that a Beautiful Little girl the daughter of a prominent citizen of Newport had fallen from the ferry boat into the River and that or. Kellum who was standing by and could easily have saved the child from a watery grave refused to Render the least assistance. When Kell urn boil ing with rage went to tie enquirer to seek an explanation of what he had begun to regard in the Light of a persecution his threats of vengeance were suddenly stopped by is Eunett s take ing off his coat and coolly saying you re not a bad fellow in your Way Kellam but i can t stand any interference with my department.

His ambition was to to Rich and he was ready to sacrifice Cryn his Lovo of scr trinic for the Gold that dazzled Iii eyes and allured him from Home into the world.

I Jive far of on the Kammer Berg and there i spend the better part of my time underground but at night in silence Anil dark Ness i wander about the country. J. Am fired now and disappointed at my want of Suc is. I must sit Down the night is Kobert seated himself on a fallen trunk near the old Miner. He was anxious to know some thing about the Gold Herb but he shrank from asking. The Miner however himself returned to the subject by a me would that i were not too old to id the Gold slave you Ever found it before frisked the in Smau. Answered the old Man to who found it once would not require to seek it a second time. If you like to undertake the quest of it Yon Are Welcome i see clearly that by Chance is for Over passed away. Listen the Gokl Heib Flowers Only from the seventh to the thirteenth Day Elj apr the feast of St. John and Only then when Moon does not Shine. Nor does it Bloom every Nigist this time but Only on the Odd nights that an the seventh ninth Eleve Atli and thirteenth. And again Only when the last Day of the old Moon and the first Day of the new Moon fall on Odd Days can the Herb become visible. Many know of Jie Plant but Tew know the Law regulating its consequently it is sought in years when it cannot Flower and on nights when it does not appear. This year is favourable to it to Day is the eleventh after St. John s feast consequently the Day after to Morrow is the last on which it can be. Found. It also blooms Only for seven minutes and Gou orally at the stroke Why arc you too old to find replied the old Man is a mystery. If Yon will Promise to share with me the Bene fits acquired by the discovery of the Gold Herb should you c Lance to find it i will Tell you replied Robert with precipitation. But you live not told me the advantages of finding the they Are the Herb belongs to an Earth Nix and she gives it away. It is no Nat ural Flower it belongs to the underground world but the Nix brings it above to give it to mortals. Rarely does she Ofier it to old Mon never to girls. She loves Best to present it to youths. Consequently you Are far More Likely to receive it than i Kobert shuddered. Is Liere any danger in quest he asked. Chuckled Tho old Man. The Eart mix is a maid of exquisite Beauty.
