Two Wajo KrarlaK Troable.
It ww coM dismal evening in No
vember, that two laborers might be
neon wending tlieir way along the
gtivet of a large manufacturing fowii.
Slowly thev roecedeil, with deject
ed MintMiaiMM, not exchanging a
wonl until the one whom we shall call
Smith, halted before a neat little house
tmlatdied tbc gate. Then there was
snch a look of utter misery and des
pair gleaming trom his eyes tliat his
companion murmured, " We must
trust in God, Smith."
The words were unheeded and his
companion irased on, while Smith
entered tlie house.
A tall dark-eyed woman was nir
ting about getting supper. Slie glatic
d up a- lie entered, exclaiming:
" Yon are late to-night."
"Yes," he articulated gloomily, and
coing to the cradle be took up tins six
veeks old baby, and sorrowfully press
ed it to his heart.
" do wish you would put that
child down and get ready for supper."
exclaimed his wife, alter enduring his
gloominess for some time.
He slowly obeyed, and then seated
himself at the table, with a deep sigh.
"What in the world is the matter
with yon to-night ?" she asked as he
sat down opposite him.
His voice trembled as be replied. "I
suixse you might as well kuow it
lirst as last. I nave been discharged."
There!" exclaimed his wife, quick
ly pushing back her chair. "Just
what I might have expected! I'd like
to know what we are going to do now.
Wuitercomingonanuall. I declare.
Smith, you wul torture me to death!"
I am very sorry, Lydia, hut I can
not help it."
"Sorry! Noyou are not sorry at all.
You would hist as leave see your wife
and child starve aa not. It's nothing
in tlie world but your poor manag
ing" "Lydh, vou are cruel. Iustead of
helping me to endure my trouble,
winch is bearing me to the very earth,
yon make it ten times harder for me
to bear. I was not tlie only one dis
charged. There was Jim Hawley, and
ever so many others. Business is
dull." She mimicked after him,
"Always an excuse for a worthless
man. To think tliat you should be
discharged now, just as our rent is
due ; and when we are out of wood ;
and look at my shoes, won't you ? my
feetalmoston the ground. I wish I
had never married yon," and a dark
look accompanied the last words. The
poor husband now covered his tare
with his hands and groaned aloud.
This seemed to encourage the ife to
go on, for she uttered words more and
more bitter, until at but, almost in a
state of frenzy, the wretched man
rushed from the house to the tavern,
and there sought to bury his tlioughts
of the past and future in the rum cup.
In toe meantime, James Hawley,
his companion in labor, entered bis
home with a very sad countenance.
But before he had stepped over the
threshold, a loving pair of arms were
thrown around his neck, and a pah of
sweet lips were pressed to his. He re
turned the salutation sadly, and then
inquired tor the baby.
"She Is sleeping sweetly in lier
cradle. She has been a perfect little
darling all day. Supper Is waiting;
so make haste. Here is warm water
and a towel. Are you not later than
"Yes Mary, and I bring bad news
Bad news !" she exclaimed turn
ing pale as for the tirst time slie no
ticed that something was wrong.
"Yes; I was discliarged to-iiiglit,
and I do not know as I can get any
thing to do before Spring. Business
is so dull,"
"Is that all ?" asked his wife wltha
aisrh of relief. "I thought it was
something terrible, tlie way you look
"And Is it not terrible enough ?
What will become of us this winter, I
am out of employment f"
"The same God who feeds tlie spar
rows clothes tlie lillies of the field
will not let us suffer."
God bless yon, Slary, there is
sweet comfort In yonr words."
"Awl now let us liave supper," ex
claimed his wife, chcerfiilly. "See, I
ha vc your favorite dish shortcake and
toast. Do not let yonr troubles Im
pair your appetite, and then after tea,
we will talk It over. God doeth every
thing for the best. And as our day,
o shall our strength be."
In tlie evening It was determined
tliat the quarter's rent should be paid
immediately, a new supply of coal olf-
t sined and the remaining portion of
the money be placed in the wile s
lands to be dealt out as sparingly as
Tlien Mary mggeated that all Iter
pretty parlor furniture should be put
away iu the garret, and the front
room let out. further than this they
could lay uo plans, and a the hus
band went ont to pay the rent, the
future looked so dark to the young
wife that she could not altogether re
nt ruin her tears ; but seeking strength
from on high, her face wore the same
rheerftil amfle when her husband re
turned, and little did he know that
during all that long night, while he
and Ids baby were soundly sleeping,
his wife lay awake planning ont the
Three months bare passed, with
scarcely a day's work, in all that time,
and now another quarter's rent is due.
In vain the laborer thrusts Ids bands
into his emntr pockets, and bi vain
racks his brain for some solution of
lie problem how that rent b to be
paid. The lodger had pakl Ms money
monthly; but then that was not
enough to meet the sum, ev4h If be
had It, and of course his wife had
spent that as fast as she received It,
and it was an every day wonder to
lame, how Mary had managed their
affairs so well.
With feeling of great despair be en
tered tlie bouse. Tlie table was spread
with the same favorite dVh. The re
was lbs abort cake and toast, flanked
With a golden Uimp of butter, a plate
of honey and a deep dish of roasted ap
ples, to be served with sugar and
cream, while at his wife's plate sat the
storun Irs, tea-pot. As James took It
In all at a glance, he greatly wonder
ed at the frugal yet comfortable way
of living. How his wife had been
able to make tlie small amount of,
monev last so long was a mystery to
him, and vet he could not help wish
ing hiwanfly tliat she had been more
economical ; then, perhaps, the rent
might have been pa hi and be felt
tliat it would have been better to have
nht.ited on one crust of bread rather
than to be turned out of doors home
less. He refused to sit at the table, plead
ing that lie had no appetite. And a
great tear arose hi tlie strong mail's
eyes as he informed tlie wife that on
the morrow they would be turned
from their home, ' to go lie knew not
where, us he had not a dollar in his
pockets to secure tlieiu a room else-
Is tliat It?" exclaimed his wife in
a soft tone and tripped up stairs, and
soon returned ami placed two ten dol
lar hills in his hand.
"Wlicre did vou tret them?" he
asked eagerly turning them over Iu
lus nanus as tnongli to ascertain
u-hother tlim wore Pennine or not.
"I earned tliem," replied his wife
gaily. "1 knit atguaiis, siiawis, child
ren 's hoods, sacques ami socks ; at
first only for those whom I providen
tially heard wislied articles of the
kind; afterwards I was employ til to
furnish a trimmed establishment with
"And kept it a sacret from me?"
Yes, because 1 tl Knight yon would
be worried for fear 1 was doing too
much. I love to knit dearly, and I
consider it more of a pleasant pas
time than labor."
"God be praised for giving me such
a wife!" exclaimed her husband earn
estly ; and pressing his wife and child
closely to his bosom, lie said : " Her
children arise up and call her blessed ;
her husband also, and lie pniiseth her ;
for many daughters have done virtu
ously but limit cxecllest them all."

A Slight Mistake. An incident
occurred one night last week on Jef
ferson street, Louisville. Ky., which
was quite interesting, at least, to one
person concerned. A young and
handsome clerk was quietly walking
down the street, w lien suddenly a love
ly young lady flashed across Ids path
like a startleil sunbeam, a soft pair of
arms were wreathed around his neck,
a pretty face was thrust under his hat,
and a plump pair of rosy lips printed
a thrilling kiss fairly on his mouth.
Tlie bashful vounz man "ien

recovered himself when tlie young lady
drew back blushing and trembling.
and timidly hiding Her lace witn lier
hands begged to be excused for mis
taking bun for an uncle. Think of
that! An undo Indeed ! lint, not with
standing the insinuation, the young
cleric was under so many obligations
to the lady for lier mistake tliat he ac
cepted the apology and gallantly of
fered to excuse her if she would repent
the outrage. Slie couldn't see tlie ne
cessity ot that however, and he saunt
ered homeward to dream of soft-armed
and rosy-lipped angels and their

resided iu the country will have owi

heard tlieir incessant screaming, ac
companied by loud and angry vocif

tliat they are mobbing an owl, and
such Is generally the case. A friend
of ours while riiling in llic country,
beard this screaming from a large as
semblage of jays, and at the same time
perceived tliat a man, wlw, laving

along the road for some distance. Our
informant, thinking that this action of

was about to do. "Oh," !ie said,
"these jaysarc mobbing an owl." He
was asked if be bad seen them. "No,'
he replied, "but tliat is tlie noise tliey
always make when so doing;" then,
pointing in the direction whence tlie
cries proceeded.lie added, "I lay a bet
the owl 13 In tliat old crab-tree. I
was picking up the stone to knock
him down." Tlie curiosity of our in
formant was excited, and, opening a

jays had already flown, and there
sat the owl, which allowed the tree to
be shaken violently before It took

in his honor In tliat city :

The question, "Does getting drunk
ever advance one's happiness?" would
seem to be put at rest by the Irishman

A friend tells an anecdote of Booth,
the great tragedian, which we do not
recollect having seen in print, it
occurred In the palmy days of his
lame, before tlie sparkle of his great
mind had been dimmed by tliat bane
of genius, strong drink.
Booth ami several friends had been
invited to dine with an old gentleman.
In Baltimore, of distinguished kind
ness, urbanity, and piety. Tlie host,
though disapproving or theatres flml
theatre-going, had heard so much of
Booth's remarkable powers tliat
curiosity to sec tlie man had hi
this in-tam e overcome all his scruples
After the entertainment was over,
lamps lighted, and the company re
seated In the drawingroom, some one
requested Booth as a particular favor,
and one which all present would
doubtless appreciate, to rend aloud the
Lord's prayer. Booth expressed his
willingness to afford them this gratifi
cation, and all eyes were turned ex
pectantly upon him. Booth rose
slowly and reverently from his clmlr.
It was wonderful to watch the play of
emotions that convulsed his coun
tenance. He became deadly pale, and
his eyes, turned tremblingly upward.
were wet witn tears, as yet lie had
not spoken. The silence could be
felt. It became absolutely painful, un
til at last the spell was broken, as if
by :ui electric shock, as his rich-toned
voice, from white lips sy tabled forth
"Our Fallier. who art In Heaven,"
etc., with pathos aikl solemnity that
thrilled all hearers. He finished. The
silence continued. Not a voice was
heard or a muscle moved ill his rapt
audience until, from a remote corner
of the room, a subdued voice was
hea id and the old gentleman, tlieir
host, stepped forward with streaming
eyes and tottering frame, and seised
Booth by tlie band. "Sir," said ke.
in broken accents, "you liave afforded
me a pleasure tor which my whole
future me will feel grateful. I am an
oki man, and everyday, from my boy
hood to the present time, I tlmugH I
had repeated the 1-ord's Prayer, but
1 1 liave never heard it before sw.""
"You are right," replied Booth.
"To read that prayer as it should se
read lias cost me the severest study
and labor for thirty years and I alii
far from being satisfied with my ren
dering of that production. Hardly
one person iu ten thousand compre
hends how much beauty, tenderness,
awl grandeur can be condensed la a
space so small and in words so simple.
That prayer of itself sufficiently illus
trates tlie truth of the Bible, aid
stamps upon it the seal of Divinity.''
"So great was tlie effect produce,"
says our informant, who was presehr,
"that the conversation was sti-talied
but a short time longer in subdued
monosvlables, and then almost n-
tirely ceased, and soon after, at tin

laborious habits ok the sew tork
The New York correspondent of
tlie Troy Time says :
Having referred to Industry as the
chief necessity to sweeten existence,
let me add something upon tlie
laborious habits of our leading busi
ness men. Many young men looked
forward to the time when tliey sliall be
released from labor, and tliey liave a
notion tliat the rich men of the dt v
lead wliat is called an "easy life." This
idea i very erroneous. Our success
ful men not only liave lieen but con
tinue to lie hard workers. It is true
there are jicrsnns who liave inherited
wealth, and therefore yield themselves
to indolence and dissipation, but tlieir
experiences quickly prove the truth
of the old saying, that tlie fool awl
his money are soon parted. Our rich
business men work because liablt lias
heroine second iwture, and tliey would
be miserable if tliey idled. We have no
rich drones for a drone would never
become rich. Let us look at tlie In
dustry of a few of our self-made men.
Here is .
who Is about three score and ten, and
is estimated at five millions. Surely
such a man, one might say, ought to
rest. Solar from this, however, lie Is
almost as busy as ever. He was no
ticed as an active dealer and faMght
cd merchant, and shire he retired from
trade lie las enough to do in tlie vast
field of finance. Mr. Taylor Is Presi
dent of the City' Bank, which is one of
tlie heaviest of onr Wall street Institu
tions. He would be extremely mis
erable if he did not visit tliat bank
even' day, awl spend an hour hi over
looking its operations hi a maimer
which some men would call laborious.
After this is done one may meet in
the Wall street crowd, tint form, little
and erect, awl tliat penetrating
countenance, which seems as much on
the alert as when lie was a jioor clerk.
Four o'clock finds him at his home,
with a racked brain and wear' body,
but a fine dinner restores his tone, awl
after an hour of social talk and a
drive to tlie Park, lie retires to his
private office awl enters into a deep
and vexations calculation which con
tinues until bed time. Do you in
quire what can it be which thus drives
a rich man so intensely ? I reply, he
has a large number of vacant lots
which should be covered with houses,
and tlie architect's plans awl the buil
der's contracts are to be examined.
He lias shares in banks. In gas com
panies, awl iu other stocks, all of
which must lie looked after. And if
he docs not finish his work as rapidly
as each day brings it before him. it
would soon accumulate iu a very
burdensome manner. Such, then, is
the life of a five million nun.
He has worked liard more than
sixty years. Of kite he lias aim ted the
intensity of his application, but still
labors from five to six hours a day in
a very close manner. He has jUst
completed the greatest railway depot 1
for travelers In this city, and this is a
mate to the great freight depot in St.
John's Park. The Commodore must
work to save himself from sheer mis
cry. Idleness would lie to him tlie
greatest of misfortunes. He is also !
determined that his children sliall be !
working men. The largest part of bis j
property will come Into their lands
and lie knows that it Is only indus-1
t nous habits that can keep them In I
possession. To snch a man as tlie 1
Commodore the Idea of retirement is
repulsive. Activity is his life, and
business Is an clasiiim. Each day
brines its excitements, either of loss
or of gain, and at its close lie feels the
pleasure resulting from exercise of the
faculties both of body and mind.
It is well known that this man is a
marvel of industry. Like Yauder
bilt, he is about seventy-five, but be
looks much younger than tlie former.
Vanderbilt may have felt tlie linpell
ing consciousness of a family to sliarp
cu application, but Stewart las
"neither chick nor child." He works
In simple obedience to his nature,
which demands it. Stewart and Van
derbilt are the great exponents of two
departments of business tlie one being
a merchant prince awl the other a rail
way king. I do not know that, they
have ever met, and the greatness of
this city Is shown by containing two
such men without collision of Interests.
It is the opinion ot good judges of
enanuter, tliat 11 Stewart nail been
bred to military life lie would lave
been the greatest general of tlie age.
What would not have been accom
plished by such method and such in
dustry ? Having readied oki age, and
with a property estimated at from
thirty to forty millions, be must still
do his day's work.
