A Tale of Everyday Life.
It was only a very tiny, dirty scrap of
paper, and the ragged lad who was standing
undr a gas-lamp to decipher the words writ
ten npon it, was so poor a scholar that he
spelled them out with difficulty.
" No yes, that's it, number twenty
something ; oh ! it's a three ; no 'taint, it's
five ; number twenty-five Dalby street, is
it ?. Do street begin with a C ? I knows
now, it's Crescen' ! Dalby Crescen'; and
that's the 'dentical place that poor mother
took me to when we came up to London,
before the cold and the want of vittles kill
ed her ! "
The lad drew the sleeve of his miserable
jacket across his eyes and shivered not so
much because the biting wind of the Decem
ber nitdit was chilling his attenuated frame,
8 in sorrowful recollections of the sad
hearted wnman he had seen perish from star
vation, on just such a. winter's night as the
" Se took me there," he mused. "I
was a very little lad at the time, but I've
never forgot how she held me up t- look in
at the windows at the gay folks that was
lancing ; and says she, ' ken, if we had our
rights, there is where tee should live. Fan
cy me, that's never had a decent shoe to my
:oot, nor a good meal since she died, living
iu a grand house like that ! 1 11 go ana

A shrill cry for " Len " made him hur
riedly hide the scrap of paper, and retort
with a sullen " well, what's up now ? can't
a fellow liave a minute to himself without
beinir veiled after. I'm a-coming, ain't I
And Ln, the outcast, the homeless orphan
who, having a curious aversion to joining
either of one bands of thieves and roughs
anioncst whom he lived, was the drudge of
a low lodging-house shuffled back to the
kitchen of his mistress, hhe was a virago,
who paid his services with scraps of broken
victuals, a share of a straw pallet when it
could be spared, a corner of the dirty floor
when it couldn't, and so many blows and
hard words, that the once bright,' sweet-
temrercd boy, whose mother was still re
membered in St. Giles as " the lettle lady,"
was fast becoming brutalized.
" Len has been turning over his boards,
a dissipated vagrant facetiously suggested,
when he was fiercely asked where he had
been skulking. " He knows as Christmas
is a comint;, and he's going to make us a
handsome present all round. "
" Maybe 1 could do that it 1 had my
rights," murmured Len, whose thoughts
were still dwelling on the words of his dead
There was a roar of laughter from his
rough companions, and the virago came to
wards him with upraised hand, vociferating,
.. . i , ... 1 ! 1
Tn ngnt ye, i win, you nragging vaga
bond ! " But a sturdy little Irish apple-wo
man who had been sitting in the chimney
corner taking a blast of the pipe, suddenly
interfered in the victim's behalf.
"Ye'll let the boy alone, mistress. Its
the drop o' whisky I giv him has got into
his head, and made him quare. Come here,
Len and sit quiet till the siuses has come
back to ye."
" What made ye say tnat I i am t nau
no whisky," said the lad, as she unceremo
niously pushed him down on the upturned
basket that formed her own seat.
" Whisht, land ! Wasn't it to save your
bones from that great blacksmith's fist of
her's ? Why do ye vex her, seem this is
all the home ye have? What were ye
a-doin' when she called an' called, and could
net no answer out o' ye ? "
len glanced over ins suouiuer w ni.me
sure no one was listening, before he replied.
"Lookmcr over a bit of paper I cot out of
the big box under her lied, and he jerked
his thumb in the direction of Mrs. Betsy
Grimsby. " When mother died there was
a little Bundle o' them papers under her pil
low, and a chain and locket that she wore
round her neck, and wouldn't part with,
even when she were too ill to work, and I
cried at her knee for bread. Old Betsy has
sold the chain, but I'll have the papers some
"Sure then, it tney re your own, wny
shouldn't ye ? " observed the apple woman,
co-dly, and Leu nodded and whispered
" I drew this one out through a crack,
but the others is tied together and she nev
er lets the key o&.the box go out of her own
But another shout for Len put an end to
the colloquy, and Irish Bridget had forgone
ten it when two days afterwards the lad
slouched past the corner of thtrbusy thor
oughfare at which she retailed her iruit ana
nuts, on his way to the handsome mansion
in Dalby Crescent.
It was Christinas eve. Ihe weather was-
bright, but piercingly cold ; and Len, who
for some days past had been conscious of
strange aches and pains in all his limbs, was
blue with the cold, when he dragged himself
wearily to the railings in front of No. 23.
There he stood, and looked down the area
and throngh the windows of the great kitch
en, in which a plump cook and a couple of
attendant satellites were rolling out paste
for mince-pies, and making other dainties
for the morrow, regardless of the half-starved
lad. who watched them.
" Who lives here ! Len asked of a news
paper boy who had stopped to gaze with
him. and only laughed aensiveiy, wnen
Miss Cook, with a threatening shake of her
rolling-pin, made signs to both of them to
w . . t ' l . tin m 1 1 it

great banker. Hant ye heard of him ?"
Leo started. " My mother s name was

" My wigs ! " exclaimed the vender of pa
per, incredulously. Then you mast be
;.nd pay him a
one of the
don t yer ca.i! yer carriage
Christmas visit .'
He ran on, laughing ; and Len, feeling as
if his weary iimbs would support hiin no
longer, sat down on the lowest of the broad
stone steps leading to Mr. Capel's door,
staring vacantly the while at a well-dressed
girl and boy, a few years his junior, who
were coming rapidly towards him hand-in-hand.
They were the children of rich parents, for
the young lady was clad in velvets and furs,
and her youthful companion's suit and warm
ulster were of the handsomest materials.
They had been skating in one of the parks,
for the boy carried, slung on his arm, the
Acme skates they had been using. Happy,
heedless, laughingly comparing their exploits
on the ice ; engrossed in each other ; the
sweet blu" eyes of the little maiden, full of
honest admiration of her brave, handsome
schoolboy, who on his part, thought Cousin
Hetta the jolliest little darling in the world;
neither of them saw the pallid outcast till
they stood beside him.
' What are you doing here, fellow ? " ex
claimed the boy, angrily. "Go away di
rectly, or I'll make you ! "
"Oh, Maurice, he looks so ill -so hun
gry ! Don't speak roughly to him," pleaded
the gentle girl.
He raised his sunken eyes to the delicate
ly fair speaker, and gazed at it till his fixed
stare frightened her.
" He's no business here ! " said Maurice
Capel, the banker's son. " We can't have
such a disreputable lad lurking about our
door ! "
"Give him something, and he'll go
away," whispered Hetta.
"Papa says we should not encourage
beggars, Maurice told her, with a dignified
" But it's Christmas timj,' she pleaded,
" when everybody gives to everybody.
Won't you ! Then the poor lad shall have
mv so.vertign that grandma gave me. I
wanted to make some one happy with it.
Bidding Len wait, the children ran into
the house, Maurice rturning alone with his
cousin's solitary coin, for nurse had pounced
upon the young lady to change her dress for
dinner. By tins time the jjorter who open
ed the door had ousted the outcast from his
feat. Mr. and Airs. Capel were coming
along the crescent, and what would master
say if he found his carefully whitened steps
desecrated by the presence ol a vagrant I
Hetta's golden gift flung, rather than
presented, to the retreating Len was
scarcely in his palm when Mr. Capel step
ped forward, stern and unpitying.
His first angry speech was for his son.
" How dare he ignore hisTcommand, and en
courage such a disreputatnble vagabond as
that ? His next for Len, whom he threat
ened with the police and the- treadmill, bid
ding him begone in such menacing tones
that the lad attempted to obey ; staggered
a few paces, and then dropped to the pave
ment. ' Intoxicated, of course ! " said the bank
er, with a shrug.
"Dying, I fear," answered a surgeon,
who had chanced to be passing, and stopped
to feel the pulseless of poor, helpless, be
"Better carry him to the workhouse,"
suggested some one else ; and he was borne
away by a couple of policemen to spend his
Christmas within the walls of St. Bonaven
And thus ended Len's first visit to the
stately mansion of the Canals, No. 25, Dal
by Crescent. Mr. Capel, touched for a mo
ment by his condition, had resolved to do
something for him, if he lived ; but in the
festivities of the season the resolve was for
gotten. To be continued.

Source oi" Personal Beauty.
A berutiful person is the natural form of
abeautifu soul. The mind bu; Ids its own
house. The soul takes precedence of the
body, and shapes the body to its own like
ness. A vacant mind takes all the meaning
out of the fairest face. A sensual dssposi
tion deforms ti.o handsomest features. A
cold, selfish he. rt shrivels and distorts the
best looks. A mean, groveling spirit takes
all the dignity out of the figure and all the
character out of the countenance. A cher
ished hatred transforms the most beautiful
lineaments into an image of ugliness. It is
as impossible to preserve good looks with a
brood of bad passions feeding on the blood,
a set of low loves tramping through the
heart, and a selfish, disdainful spirit en
throned in the will, as to preserve the beau
ty of an elegant mansion with a litter of
swine in the basement, a tribe of gipsies in
the parlor, and owls and vultures iu the trp
per part. Badness and beauty will no more
keep company than poison will canscrt
'with health, or an elegant carving sur
vive the furuace fire. The experiment ot
Hiutting them together has been tried for
thousands ot years, dui wiiii one unvarying
result. There is nothing that so refines,
polishes, and ennobles face and mien as the
constant presence of great thoughts. The
man who lives in the region of iicis, moon
beams though they be, becomes idealized.
There ase no arts, no gymnastics, no cos
metics, wiiich can contribute a tithe so
much of the dignity, the strength, the en
nobling of a man's looks, as a great purpose,
a high determination, a noble principle, an
unquenchable enthusiasm. But more pow
erful still than any of these as a beautitier
of the person is the overmastering purpose
and pervading disposition of kindness in the
heart. Affection is the organizing force in
the human constitution. Woman is fairer
than man because she has more affection
thau man. Loveliness is the outside of lone.
Kindness, swSetness, good will, a prevailing
desire and determination to make others
happy, make the body a temple of the Holy
Ghi.st. The soul that is full of pure and
generous affections, fashions and features in
to its own angelic likeness, as the rose by
inherent impulse grows in grace and blos
sorne into loveliness which art cannot equal.
Thers is nothing on earth which so quickly
traiistigures a personality, relines, exalts,
irradiates with heaven's own impress of love
liness, as a pervading, prevailing kindness
of the heart. The angels are beautiful be
cause they are good, and God is beautiful
because He is love. Christian Globe.
Watching One's-self. "When I was a
boy," said an old man, we had a school
master who had an odd way of catching
idle boys. One day he called out to us :
" ' Boys, I must have closer attention to
your books. The first one that sees another
idle, I want him to inform me, and I will
attend to the case. '
" Ah," thought I to myself, " there is Joe
Simmons that 1 don't like. I'll watch him,
and if I see him looking off his book, I'll
tell." It was not long beforeT saw Joe
look off his book, and immediately I in
formed the master.
" Indeed ! " said he ; " how do you know
he was idle ? "
" I saw him," I said;
"You did? and were your eyes on your
book when you saw him ? "
I was caught, and never watched for idle
If we are sufficiently watchful over our
own conduct, we shall luive no time to find
fault with the conduct of others.
None are too wise to be mistaken, but
few are so wisely just as to acknowledg and
correct their mistakes, and especially the
mistakes of prejudice.
Poverty never did any man the least good.
No man is richer, or happier, or wiser for it.
It commends no one to society ; it is dis
gusting to the refined, and abominable to
Every year of our lives we grow more
convinced that it is the wisest and best to

Stick to Your ISukm.
The secret of the man who got rich by
" sticking to his bush" will bear repetition
even in these times. In answer to a ques
tion how he became so very successful, he
told the following story :
I will tell you how it was. One day when
I was a lad, a party of boys and girls were
going to pick blackberries. I wanted to go
with them, but was afraid father would not
let me. When 1 told him what was going
on he at once gaye me permission to go with
them. I could hardly contain myself.
I rushed into the kitchen, got a basket,
and ' asked mother for a luncheon. I had
the basket on my arm, and was just going
out at the gate when my father called me
back. He took my hand and said in a very
gentle voice :
"Joseph, what are you going to do ?"
" To pick berries," I replied.
"Then, Joseph, I want to tell yon one.
thing. It is this : When you find a pretty
good bush, do not leave it to seek for a bet
ter one. The other boys and girls will run
about picking a little here and a little there,
passing a good deal of time, and getting but
a very few berries. "
I went and had a capital time. No sooner
had one found a bush than he called all the
rest, and they left their several places, and
ran off to the now found treasure. Not
content more than a minute or two in one
place, they rambled over the whole pasture,
got very tired, and at night had "very few
My father's words kept running in my
ears, and I "stuck to the bush." When 1
had done with one I found another, and fin
ished that, then I took another. When
night came I had a basket full of ripe ber
ries, more than all the others put together,
.i..d wu nut half so tired as they were. I
weut home happy. But when I entered 1 1
found my father had taken ill. He looked
at mv basket full of ripe blackberries, andj
saiil : " Well done, Joseph. Was I not
right when I told you to always stick to
your bush ?"
He died in a few days after, and I had to
make my way in the world as best I could.
But mv father's words tank deep into my
mind, and I never forget the experience of
that blackberry party "I stuck to my
bush." When I had a fair place and was
doing tolerably well, I did not leave it and
spend weeks and months seeking one 1
thought mightbe a little better. When
other youii'' men said, " Come with us and
we will make a fortune in a few weeks," I
shook mv head and stuck to my bush. Pres
ently my employers offered to take me into
business, with them, l stayed witn the oni
house until the principals died, and then I
had everything I wanted. The labit of
sticking to my business led people to trust
me and gave me a character, J owe all I
have to this motto : "Stick to your bush."
A Iiesson to Viiii Hen.
In these days of defalcations and breach
es 6f trnst, there are two causes which more
than any other lead to 8u-:h offenses, and'
these two causes, it is almost needless to say,
are the drinking of spirituous liquors to ex
cess and gambling. The first naturally leads
to the latter, and the latter counts' its vic
tims by the score among young men.
There is scarcely a daily paper we pick up
which does not bear us out in this assertion,
but one case of recent occurrence demands
more than a passing notice, and we propose
to call the especial attention of young men
occupying responsible positions to it.
A young man of highly respectable ap
pearance, whose name it is not necessary to
give here, stood at the bar of the Court,
charged with the crime of robbing his em
ployer. He did not deny his guilt, but told
the story of his crimes and begged the clem
ency of the Court. His story in substance
was that he did not intend to steal the.
money, but had only used, it to recover
money that he had lost in gambling, intend
ing to return it when fortune favored him.
He was a graduate from the Western Uni-.
versity, of highly respectable parentage, and
held a position which insured him a liberali
salary, troops of friends, and the entree to
the best society ; but in an evil hour he was
led into gambling. He lost his money, of
course, and in the vain hope of getting it
back he was tempted to rob his employer.
The next night he visited the house again,
and lost all his money. Then it seemed to
him that he could not lose on the third
night, and so he took $40 from the money
diawer and went a third time to the house'
thinking that he certainly would be able to
replace the money in the morning. This
money was lo3t, and at the end of t'.ie week
he had taken 200 from the money-drawer
" I was nearly wild," he said, " because I
only took the money to win back what I took
thefirst time, and all this time my employer
was treating me so kindly that I felt as if.I
should go crazy. One night I called at my
employer s nouse to make a clean orcasi oi
it, but he was not at home, and on my way
back I stopped at a gambling house and won
$125. I felt then I could win enough to pay
him back, and I thought it would be foolish,
to make a confession and ruin, myself . when,
I could pay it back without letting any one,
know I had taken it. The next night I won,
again, and had within $40 or. $50 of what I
had taken. The day after I went to the
gambling house as soon as I could get away
from the store, and then 1 lost all tne money
I had gained."
This, probably, i3 the history of ninety-,
nine young men out of every hundred who
are similarly tempted, and as it, .is highly.
probable that this will meet the eye ot some
youth who has taken the first downward
.;tep in the same direction, we appeal to him.
by his own self-respect, by the love of his
relatives and friends, by all his hopes of the
future, to stop at once before it is too late.
If he has already taken the first step, let
hiin go to his employer without delay, make
a full confession, and throw himself on that'
employer's mercy. Should he do this, all
may yet be well with him. Should, he sti-.
tie the voice of conscience and listen to the
siren voiee of the tempter, nothing is more
certain than he will eventually become an
inmate in a felon's cell despised by bis
friends and condemned forever after to herd
with felons. ...
Money won at gambling brings with it no.
blessing under any circumstances. No pro
fessional gambler ever died rich, while the
same exertion to accumulate money by such
means used in any honest direction would
insure at least a comfortable living, .and the
love and respect of all good men. Let
young men lay this lesson seriously at heart,
and be ever ready to exclaim, when tempta-
tion assails them : " Get behind me, Satan."

Influence of Newspapers.
A school teacher who. had been engaged a ,

the influence of a newspaprr upon the minds
of family and children," writes as follows :
" I have found it to be a universal fact with
out exception, that scholars of both sexes
and all ages, who have access to newspapers
at home when compared with" those who
have not, are :
1. Better readers, excellent in pronuncia
tion, and coiisequeutly read more under

words with ease and accuracy.
3. They obtain practical knowledge of
geography in about half the time it requires
the others, as the newspapers have made
them acquainted with the location of im
portant places, of nations, their government
and doings on the globe. ..
4. They are better grammarians for having
become; so familiar with every variety of
style in the newspaper, from the common

sical oration of the statesman, they more
readily comprehend the meaning of the text,
and constantly analyze its construction with'

" Don't put too fine a point to your wit,"
said Cervantes, "for fear it should get
blunted." He spoke to men ; if he had been
addressing young women, he might have
said: "Don't put too fine a point to your
wit for fear it should wound rather than
tickle. " Men don't take kindly to the sharp,
clever young woman'who is always hurling
ber shafts of wit. They not only believe,
with Shakespeare, that a "soft, gentle and
low voice," is "an excellent thing in women,"
but that it should be accompanied by gentle
manners and a tender heart. The Philadel
phia Times utters thoughts about the too
clever young woman,- the good sense of
which makes them worth heeding:
Occasional indulgerice in repartee with
bright man or woman is entertaining, but if
either insists'upon carrying on the game un
duly, it becomes a nuisance, and the prtust-
ent one lays himself or herself open to the
gravest of social charges, "bad style." To
talk with a girl who will do nothing but cut
and thrust, and whose constant attack ne
cessitates a constant defense, is a bore. No-'
body cares to live constantly on spiced meats.
