THE BORROWING NEIGHBOUR. Mrs. Baxter, a gentlewoman who had seen better days, and lived now in a somewhat I mixed' suburb of Leeds, was lying on a couch in her coot and shaded NiMAng-rwm. An odour of camphor pervaded the rooin. I The pale face appearing from beuehth the wfckebandage gave ample evidence that she was suffering the torture of a severe headache. II, ber,,movin a fan with a gentle motion, Sat an elderly lady, Mr. Baxter's mother, who bad at- rived on a visit that day. There was a sharp click of the gate, and then the w ell-known sound of slipshod feet across the kitchen floor. Oh, dear! I do believe Mrs. Goodwin has come to borrow something again moaned the sick woman, making a feeble attempt to rise. The door, which had been left ajar, was pushed open, and a taU, gaunt figure appeared. 4 Good afternoon, Mrs. Baxter. I do declare, if you havnt got one of them tiresome headaches again! Had it all day ?' The caller spoke in a rasping tone, with a quick utterance. You ought to take some hot tea, and soak your feet, and have a good sweat. I don't think a dose of castor oil wouldn't come pmis4 either.' Without stopping for a reply, or an introduction to the elderly stranger, she continued in a tone which touched every nerve in Mrs. Baxter's body, I I've just had word that Mrs. Springer and her sister from- Bradford were coming to spend the afternoon with me, and me without a bit of cake in the house! So I just let to work to make some, and found I was right out of peel and baking powder, so I just run over to borrow lOme.' Mrs. Baxter made an effort to rise. I Don't trouble now; you lay st-ill. I can got it. I know where you keep it!' And without other vo or& she started for the pantry. Mrs. Baxter knew that honesty was one of Mrs. Goodwin's redeeming points, so she made no effort to detain her. Having procured a sufficiency of both powder and peet, Mrs: Goodwin pulled her apron over her head again, and with a parting injunction to Mrs. Baxter to 'keep her head cool, and above all to keep her nerves quiet: ahe hastened home. The next morning, as Mrs. Baxter was busy about her household duties, and chatting with her mother, Mrs. Goodwin again appeared. She carried in her hand an empty cup. So you are better again ? Take any strong tea V Without pausing for a reply she continued, I Well, we had a real nice afternoon yesterday, and my sweet cake baked beautiful, if I do say it. I was just getting ready to make some ginger-bread, which our folks like so, and found myself right out of Demerara sugar, so I just stepped in to borrow a little tiU my groceries come home to-morrow. Mr. Goodwin called in Leeds market this morning to order them.' Mrs. Baxter quietly proceeded to fill the cup from her own well-filled store, Mrs. Goodwin indulging meanwhile in gossip, which, although not in the least malicious, was exceedingly distasteful to Mn. Baxter. So that is your husband's mother, is it?' she ex- claimed, after being introduced. Come unexpected, p'raps ?' 'No—not unexpectedly. The visit has been a pleasant anticipation for a fortnight,' replied Mrs. Baxter. Why, you didn't tell me she was comin'! Well, I must hurry. If I sit here talkin' all day I shall never get my ginger-bread made.' And soon the click of the gate announced her departure. Mrs. Baxter threw herself into a chair with an expression of hopelessness which surprised her mother. J What shall I do? she exclaimed. 'That woman worries me to death with her borrowing. She is a good, honest creature, but hasn't the least idea how she troubles me. I don't want to be disobliging, or refuse her a favour. It's just so all the time. No sooner do 1 get about my sewing, or writing, or taking a nap, than I have to jump up to wait on her for something she has come to borrow. And that isn't all, either. Sometimes she forgets to return borrowed articles. I don't wonder at it, she borrows so much. And frequently the article she returns is not as good 88 Inim Sometimes I cant use her flour or butter. I dislike to Say anything to hurt her feelings, Or to offend her, so I have borne it ever since I have lived here'—oVer twiyyeart l What shaft I do?' Her mother aat silent for a few moments. Thai she said: I know how to feel for you.' I once had a borrow- ing neighbour. I can tell you what I did, but perhaps you win not approve of my course.' Do teU me ? exclaimed Mrs. Baxter, eagerly. This neigbbbur was a good enough sort of woman,' said her mother, but she would borrow everything, from a piece of soap to a perambulator. Sometimes she forgot to bring them back, and sometimes they weren't worth much if she did. I remember I began besetting aside all articles of doubtful quality, such as BftUr, butter, and when She came to borrow such thhigfe again, I gave theim to her. One morning die saldtoine: '"Seems to me that last butter was not as good as you commonly have, was it P" Said I, as calmly as I.could, considering I was alarmed lest she should be provoked: ."1 think not, It's the same butter you brought b»ck to me three days ago. I didn't need to use it. I thought perhaps! ^ou liked that sort, so I put it on one side against the time you wanted some more. She looked thunderstruck. Was that what you did with the last near I htought back?"' and her tone was very suspicious. "said 1, as meek as a bmb. And the tea, too f' "Yea* tays I, though I was trembling all over, I was so worried. 4 I thought if they were your own shopkeeper's groceries there couldn t be any objec. tion. I'^OU ought to have seen that woman I She looked all'Sorts of ways. She never said one word, but just marched straight out, and she never borrowed after that. She was rather oool for a good while, but she got O*i* it finally, and thentoforth troubled the grocers a little more than she did her neigh." Why, Mat;hal I wouldn't dare do such a things said Baiter, juifior. 'I should be afraid she would gotve^y vexM and gossip about me i'Wbåt if she does? YouTt get over that T add her mottier. That very afternoon lira. Goodwin came in to return some borrowed butter. It was odorous, and therefore odious. "l'i*i deopwi+Ao' said young MmL Bista. I shall tty,yow. plan.' Next morofrig the sugar came home, and was set aside! in antibipatioii of the time when it might want to walk busk across to Mrs. Goodwin's. The butter kspt it cQihpany. yaly afew days passed, and butter was again sailed foK Mrs. Baxter shook in her shoes as she handed her neighbour that-strong scented butter. Nact morning Mrs. Goodwin came in to borrow a little salt Mid a couple of eggs. Db you tale butter fromhew dairy now, Mrs. Baxter V she Inquired. No—why do jrou ask V said Mrs. Baxter, innocently, trying to suppress a smile., •I thought that last I boirowed of you was not as good as usual/ she replied. Mrs. Baxter braced herself mentally, and proceeded to face the ordeal. It Was the same you brought home the other day. I Will tell you frankly that I thought it was not as good as mine. I am very particular about butter, even in'cooking, sb I saved it for you. in dase you should happ^to want some more.' _d MM. uooawm-s nee flushed, turned pale, then red again. For once she was at a loss for words to express herself. Bestowing on MM. Baxter a look in which there was such a variety of emotion that she failed to interpret it, she hastened away. "There, mother! I've done It now ? And Mrs. Baxter repeated the conversation. They saw nothing of Mrs. Goodwin for three days. At the end of that time she suddenly appeared, bring- ing a basket which she placed carefully on the kitchen table. "There, Mrs. Baxter Pshe exclaimed. 'I'Ye brought home all the borrowed things I could think of. It has just come to me what a nuisance I must have been; and me living as near the shops as you do! PB take care not to trouble you so much in future.' Mrs. Goodwin proceeded to unload the basket. There were eggs, salt, soda, soap, a cup of sugar, I some tea, a paper of needles, some starch, a bowl of Hour, pickles, some, mustard, some writing paper, three postage stamps, and a paper of cough drops. I And here's your basket, too. I'd bad it so long I really forgot it was yours !• And she set the basket down at the astonished Mrs. Baxter's feet. Mrs. Goodwin coloured a little as she said 'Now I hope we shall be just as good friends as ever, because I do like you. You've been kind and obliging to me, though you are more genteel than us.' 'I hope we always shall remain friends, rm aure," replied Mrs. Baxtpr. 6 To tell the truth. it has some. times inconvenienced me to get the articles, not bu, that I would just as soon you should have them. But if we understand each other, it will be all right. Occasionally I shall be happy to oblige you.' •Well I must sharpen up my memory a little and send for things before I need them, as you do.' There continued to exist between them kindly fed ing, but from that day Mrs. Baxter lost her borrow- ing neighbour.
CHURCH AND CHAPEL. On Sunday evening, tb,, Re,, Josiah Evans, resident minister of the English W"Iey-,in church, preached an ahle sermon on "Peli-ion as a business" to a large congregation. He founded his remarks on the 2nd chapter of Proverbs, and said that he wanted to set the thoughts of his congregation to work, for in the limited time which even their patience would allow a preacher of the present day he could not possibly pourtray the beauties and magnificence of these verses. His subject was the law of successful pur- suit in the prosecution of the duties of religion. In all pursuits they would find that diligence led to prosperity, and following these rules the natnral result was success. As in the ordinary pursuits of life, so it was in the pursuits of religion. Religion was set forth as a search—Seek ye the Lord, and He shall be found;" if they prosecuted the search Christ would be found at their very right hand. Just as in the ordinary pursuits of life there were regular rules to pursue if they would succeed so was it in the pro- secution of that search for Christ—for God. In the text there was not only the abstract thought brought before them of religion being a pursuit, but there was a magnificent illustration which showed how it was to be carried out. If they wished to suc- ceed in their religion they must put their business into it-put the same diligence, same energy, same determination, the same resolution into their religion as they did into their business. What would be the result, did they think, if their search was an aimless one? A man started in the morning with a goal before him to be gained before the night, and unless he did so with energy and determination he would think that there was something wrong. In the text there were two classes ot men brought before them- the student in his search for knowledge and the man who was seeking for wealth. The preacher then vividly painted the picture of the student in his search after knowledge, and how diligently he pur. sued the search so as to accomplish his purpose, and he thought no time wasted or no sacrifice too great so that he might accomplish his pur- suit successfully. He asked the student ifohe would put the same methods of his studies into his religion ? Then. there was the man who was seeking for wealth. It was true that some men were what was termed fortunate," everything that they touched turned into gold; but that was not the com- mon rule of life it was by diiigenco, industry, and perseverance that men succeeded. Was it not a fact that they saw daily very much less diligence and per- severance shown in the matter of religion than in any other business. It was the most serious and impor- tant business that they had to do if there be a God, if religion be a reality, if the soul be immortal, their religion was one of the most serious and awful businesses there was in the world. Hence, that business should be prosecuted with earnestness. Was it not a fact that in a large number of cases those who professed to be religious, following religious pursuits, that they only devoted about a tenth of the time to this awful business than what they did to the ordinary pursuits of life. They saw people, who thought they were religious, but whose religion consisted in worshipping God only on the" Sabbath day, and sometimes only once on the Lord's day. Family prayer with them was no institution the practices of godliness with them were nil, and by attending church or chbpel once on the Lord's day they seemed to think that they had laid up stores of knowledge. Did they wonder that they were weak- lings ? Did they wonder that they were carried away by every wind and tide ? The man of robust religion was the man who lived in communion with God. The Saviour taught them that religion was a search to be prosecuted the man who dis- covered there was a treasure in a field, what did he do ? ^He went and purchased the field, and then set tdbearch diligently until he found it.' It was not a fruitless search, the treasures were before them, and God pointed them to the treasures. He urged his hearers to put the question seriously before themselves: they read of men of distinguished and distinctive character, called apostles and pro- phets. How did they attain to that character? The privileges of the cross of Christ were open to all. the treasures of religion were open to them to aspire to, and their position might be on an equality, on a-par, with the apostles and prophets. He quoted modern heroes to be found in the mission fields, surrounded by thousands of heathen, and yet they were able to stand and to succeed, because they made religion the business of their life. They had the law of success in their lives by faith, and diligence, and determi- nation, and courage they secured success, and that success might be achieved by every member of the congregation. At the close of the service contributions were invited on behalf of the county infirmary.

THE CHURCH SCHOOLS TREAT. The Rev J. H. Protheroe, vicar of St. Michael's, and the churchwardens—Messrs E. P. Wynne and B. E. Morgan-finding there was no general move- ment in the town to celebrate the jubilee of her Majesty's reign, conceived the happy idea of giving the scholars of the united schools of -it. Michael's, St. Mary'8, the Ysgoldy, and the children attending- the National day schools a treat in commemoration of the event. It was calculated that a sum of £ 35 or X40 would be required to defray the expenses, and Miss Roborts, 23, Terrace, and Miss Ostnotherly undertook to collect contributions, and in a short time the necessary funds were forthcoming, a large number of persons most willingly and readily sub- scribing. The general arrangements were under- taken by the Vicar, MrE. P. Wynne, aud .1' Thoniaa Griffiths, Great Darkgate-srreet. It was decided, with the kind consent of Air Loxdale, to visit Castle Hill, Llanilar, and Friday last was selectecl 94 the date on which the affair should t4ke pi Lee. The promoters were most fortunate throughout in the undertaking. The weather was all that could be desired, and, indeed, the day proved the last of & long series of days of brilliant sunshine before a break, for between nine and ten on. the same evening, after all returned home, the wel- come rain came down in torrents, and the weather has been more or less unsettled ever since. There were about twelve hundred scholars and friends. antt the majority of these met at the t own Hall, whero they were formed in marching order by the tfev W- Evans, curate, Mr E. P. Wynne, and M r J. Griffiths, National schoolmaster. In this order they proceeded, accompanied by the Church and schools' banners. through Portland-street, i errace-road, and thence to the railway station, where two special trains were in readiness to receive and convey them to Llanilar per Manchester and Milford Railway. Upon arriving af Castle Hill they were allowed to roam in parts of the beautiful grounds, and some adopted this mode of enjoying the pleasant and happy interval before the serious business of devouring the tea ana excellent plumcake and buns was proceeded with, while others at once betook themselves to the romp- ing games peculiar to out-door parties of this descrip- tion. The preparation of the tea was undertaken fey Mr O. L. Bwberts, the Green, Trefechan, and Mr X, D. Hughes. and they proved efficient in brewirg. the cup which cheers, Ac. "j The tea was conveyed fromAberystwyth to Llanilar in casks, and when served out was found to be quite, hot enough for all practical purposes; the large company enjoyed the meal heartily al fresco, the teachers, lady friends, and several gentlemen con- nected with the English and Welsh churches finding it difficult to meet the demands made upon tbengu. However, there was an abundance, and to spare, and at last all were satisfied Several thousand buna were supplied by Mr W. E. Davies, Pier-street, and they gave great satisfaction. The sports which followed were under the management of Mr B. fiL Morgan, assisted by Mr Thomas Griffiths, and others,, and all—Yicar, curates, churchwardens, men aud women-entered into the spirit of the games, and not only seemed very happy themselves, but also contri- buted greatly to the happiness of the young folk. Prizes were given by the management for running and jumping, in addition to which several ladie* and gentlemen opened their hearts and their purses and supplemented the gifts of the committee by others to those who distinguished themselves as athletes. Mr Kane's town band had been engaged, and performed an excellent selection of dance music, to which many of the young people responded by tripping it gaily to the sounds of sweet music. Shortly before the younger members were to return home they were marched up to the front of the mansion, where they sang several jubilee songs, and gave three hearty cheers for Mr Loxdale. They were afterwards marched to the railway station, where a "special** was again awaiting them, and they reached home safely about eight o'clock, after having spent a most enjoyable day. A second train, containing the adults, arrived here about 9.30, and after the coat- pany had alighted, three hearty cheers were given for the Vicar (Mr Protheroe). The children who were too young to be taken by train, about one hun- dred in number, all under four years of age, were supplied with tea and cake at the National schools, and were attended to by Miss Williams, the infants* schoolmistress, assisted by her sister and Mrs E. P. Wynne. All of them thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

LAMPETER COLLEGE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-It is more than astonishing to hear from the most unexpected and opposite quarters commenda- tions of your editorial comments last week upon Lampeter College. I am thankful that someone has had the courage to point out that the College will soon be unchurched and denationalized unless counteract- ing influences are brought to bear upon the authori- ties. As you pointed out, there is only one Welsh- man on the staff of the College, which is supposed to be the alma mater of more than half the clergy. Report saith that this poor solitary Welshman bas by no manner of means a pleasant or genial time of it. Brave, no doubt, but lonely he is as a pelican in the wilderness. But it is refreshing to find from your columns that his voice is to be heard at times. Let him take heart. He has a host of unknown friends and sympathisers, who will spare no effort to main- tain the national character of Lampeter. I rejoice that this national cry has been raised. It will do much real good. This year I ht'ard the remark, If you went to St David's College on one of its gala days yon would hear among its tutors and professors every brogue but Welsh." Your poor ears would be afflicted with the snuffling brogue of "Ould Oireland," the grating twang of the < Cockney, and the broadest Scotch which even hair education" (Welshmen call it higher education) has not eliminated. Let the staff advertise for a good, healthy Welsh brogue, and then their orchestra will be fully equipped. I fear, however, the present staff will not accept this valu- able suggestion, as they may think that a gracious Providence has only one function left for Welshmen to discharge, viz., to pay fees. I beg very deferen- tially to point out that Welshmen have still one strong faculty of imitation. Now, if the Welsh students at Lampeter imitate, as they certainly will, all these brogues, and blend them with their own native product, the sure result will be that when they go out into their parishes they will beao unintelligible and insufferable that Disestablishment Will be the only and immediate remedy for an afflicted people. May heaven, and your powerful pen. Mr Editor, avert such a visitation and judgment from our de- voted na.tion!-I am, &c, CYMRO.
