"evil," they are "( few." The brevity corrects the bitterness. The fight may be severe, but the warfare will soon be accomplished. The road may be rough, and the weather stormy, but our Father's house-our home is at hand! from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, "God shall wipe away all tears nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." AMEN.

beautiful illustration of the transparency of a compound which, in truth, is nothing but a mixture of the rust of three metals.

The power of matter to change its conditions from solid capacity to limpid transparency causes some rather puzzling phenomena, Substances increase in weight without any apparent cause; for instance, a plant goes on increasing in weight a hundred fold for every atom that is missing from the earth in which it is growing. Now, the simple explanation of this is, that leaves of plants have the power of withdrawing the invisible charcoal from the atmosphere, and restoring it to its visible state in some shape or other. The lungs of animals and a smokeless furnace change matter from its visible to its invisible state. The gills of fishes and the leaves of plants reverse this operation, rendering invisible or gaseous matter visible. Thus the balance in nature is maintained, although the continual change has been going on long prior to the creation of the "extinct animals."-Piesse.
