Oh! the pure delight between God and glorified souls. God looks on them with an enjoyed eye as his own by many dear titles, and is ravished with the replex of his own excellence shining in them. "As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride (it is the language of devine love) so their God rejoices over them. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in his love; He will rejoice over thee with singing." He is infinitely delighted in the communication of his goodness to them. And what a blessed rest do they find in the complete fruition of His goodness, All their desires quietly expire in his bosom. What triumphs of joy follow! Can we frame a fuller conception of happiness than to be perfectly loved by the best and most blessed Being and perfectly to love him, and to partake of the richest emanations of his loving kindness, that is far more valuable and desirable than life itself? --Dr. Bates.

The children's day exercises last Sunday morning were of a very interesting nature. The house was crowded. The dialogue between destiny youth, temptation and goodness, was finely rendered, each child did its part well. The orchestra gave us a fine piece of music.

The city fathers are to be commended for the activity and push they are manifesting, by way of improving and bettering the city. The sidewalk improvement is greatly in place. Let the good work go on.

Never speak in a contemptible manner of womankind.

From Bethlehem, the house of bread, came the bread of life.

To have God pleased with us is the best of all the good things in the universe or in eternity.

Praying without faith is like pumping where there is no spring of water. All the effort is in vain.

The face is made every day by its morning prayer, and by its morning look out of windows which open upon heaven.--Parker.

The wise man preserves in his own bosom the sacred flame which enlightens him, though winds may blow and tempests roar without.

Last week on Thursday the pastor and family had a pleasant visit with the families of J.H. Deets and C.A. Brigham, sharing in a splendid dinner at the latters place.

The attendance at the prayer meeting last week was good. Now please invite yourself to the meeting next week, we shall be glad to greet you there. We are now studying the life of Paul.

Mr. Amiel Debree of Butler, Neb., was a welcome visitor at the Parsonage. He, with his esteemed parents, now sainted, were much endeared to us in the bonds of faith and love in former years.

We kindly ask all to personally pray and work for the progress of the Lord's work in our hands and midst. Give it your personal presence and effort. Make a sacrifice for it and God will bless you and the work. Remember in unity of effort there is success.

True politeness is perfect ease and freedom. It simply consists in treating others just as you would like to be treated yourself.

Pride costs us much more than hunger, thirst and cold.
