"I will not be imposed upon," who resolves to contend against any and every infringement of his rights, at all hazards, pays dearly for his inflexibility. He thinks he knows what course is best for his interests better than God, and acting accordingly, he must endure the consequences. He must live upon the boisterous ocean of contention, and his heart must be like the troubled sea, that casts up mire and dirt. The bible inculcates upon us the

A NEW HAT OR A NEW BIBLE.Being at Holywell, the following anecdote was related to me. D. Pennout, Esq., of Dooring, near Holywell, asked J. Price, a child belonging to the sabbath-school," Which will you choose, a new hat or a new Bible ?" The boy being in great want of a hat, hesitating for a mo ment, the worthy gentleman said, "Take your time to consider." Then the boy, after pondering the matter, replied, "If you please, sir, I will have the Bible." But the kind gentleman imitating our Lord in his conduct towards Solomon (2 Chron. 1 chap.) gave the boy both a new hat and a new Bible. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all necessary things shall be added. Young Moses preferred the reproach of Christ before the treasures of Egypt, and he had his reward.

"MY HEART TALKED."-A child, six years old, in a sabbath-school, said, "When we kneel down in the school room to pray, it seems as if my heart talked!" Little reader, is your heart engaged when you profess to be praying, or are you careless? Remember that if your heart does not talk there is no prayer, for as the little hymn says,

"God does not care for what I say, Unless I feel it too."
