Most of his acta he will repent
And finer feelings oftinies smother. .
'Mid summer's suns and winter's snows,
It matters not wliicftroad he goes.
Mayhap he'll wish he'd taken 'tothcr.
He starts aloft to heights of fame
To publish to the world his name,
Resting his hojcs in calm repose.
His ladder stands on slippery ground,
And ere he's reached the topmost round.
Slides from beneath and down he goes.
Mayhap he'll reach the acme safe,

With enemies a numerous clan,
Ah ! ene:nie3 as said the sage

His enemies, legion by name,

And bitter, blighting, blasting sorrow.

Where loved ones weep to see him sink,
Reform comes not before the morrow.
The wrinkled brow, the locks of gray.
But tell of physical decay.
The grinders cease, for they are few.
The prayers, the tears, the tearful strife
Shape destiny's peculiar knife
To cut the thread of life in two.
A shadow of the checkerd past
Of foal hopes scattered to t. e blast,
And scenes of sorrow, toil and pain.
A path tha t leads through thick and thin,

Farmers vrill do' well to call on me
I KNOW IT.
At seventeen years of age 1 was
more of a man than I have ever been
since. I wore a long-tailed coat and
hoots (to which the appnrtenaiice of
spurs was quite generally aided), a
mustache was quite visible on my
upper lip an l a consciousness of ripe
maturity never left my mill I. I was
studying for the legal profession, but
at the time o which I write was
spending my summer vacation at my
father's house in the country.
Though so manly (almost soldier
like as I fancied), in my appearance,
my inner was by no means so stem
is my outer man. I loved my moth
er with childish tenderness, and soon
er I han pain her pious heart I un
murmuring ly accompanied her every
Sunday to the village church to lis
ten to long sermons of which I could
not hear a wo 'd, for the tremulous
accents of the very aged minister
who conducted the services were so
taint as to be man lible where we
sat. J hou;h incited bv love ami
luty to subject myself to this weekly
penance (well deserved by my weekly
sins), my conscience did not prevent
me from whi'ing away the time by
such amusements as lay at hand

ulating on the countenance of my.
neighbors, an occupation of which I
The physiognomy which interested
me mora than all others was that of

care. The girl a lace irom uie nrsi
eliciting mvcareless admiration, grad
ually absorbed my whole attention
It was very beautiful, but apart from
that it possessed the greatest possi'
bla interest for me.
Never had I seen a countenance
which denoted so much sensibility;
each emotion of her mind was plainly
written 'upon it, by its quick, deli
cate changes; nothing was wanted
but the key of a correspond i ng de
gree of sensibility in tho beholder to
read her tender, innocent soul like an
open book. For hours I gazed and
speculated on that fair young face I
thought how sad would be the lot of
so sensitive a being should fate unite
her to one who would not know to read
aright what was so delicately -written
to whom the varying express
ion of that sweet countenance would
be but a blank who would be able
to see ir it only its coarser .part
beauty of feature. Tliere was no
end to IB3 reveries into which those
j swift coming blushes led rae.
Sometime, by chance, tUo fair
object of my busy fancies would
catch my eye, or without looking at
me, seemed to know or feel that I was
gazing at her, and I wickedly de
lighted in noting the blush which
deepened on her cheek till I with
drew my eyes.
One Sunday I happened, in com
ing out of church, to be close to my
lovely neighbor immediately be
hind her my hand actuallyt ouched
her unconscious garments. I felt an
irresistable desire to force her in
some way to notice me to speak to
her to occasion one of those charm
iug blushes anything I koew not
what. In short, like an impertinent
coxcomb as I was, I stepped forward,
and with insufferable insolence,
which I now blush to remember, I
whispered in her ear:
"Yon are very pretty!"
Never was I more suprised than
when she calmly replied:
"I know it."
I was absolutely startled. I had
expected a silent, conscious blush an
indignant glance anything lather
than this cool "I know it."
As much as I had heretofore dis
liked attending the village church,
the next week seemed to drag along
slowly enough, and when Sunday
anain came mv mother and I were
early seated in our pew, and I impa
tiently awaited for the arrival of my
lovely enigma. I tried to prepay
myself for disappointment. "I have
been thinking and dreaming about
an ideal." I said to myself "doubt
less when the young lady heragtf ap
pears, all my tine imaginajV will
vanish there can be '-"A Bp 111 '
fancy has been playing ts with
me, in vesting a mere country maiden
with transcend ant graces and
charms." While thus reasoning
with myself, the young lady appear
ed, leading her old relative with len
Wor.-hiping an "ideal," indeed !
My most charming remt-rube ranee
did not begin to do justice to the
beautiful reality. A soul full of ten
derness and sensibility seemed to
have found a fitting home in a per
fect loveliness and grace.
She blushed, when, looking round,
she chanced to see me, and again tlr-i
play of expression on her features
which had so interested me formerly,
The more I studied her face the
more I seemed to see into the pure
depth of her soul. I could have
staked my life on her noble purity o!
thought and deed.
As we return od home I described
my fair neighbor and asked mother
who she was.
Her name," my mother said, "is
Grace Denny, and she is the love
liest, the most inperior young wom.in
that I have ever in my life met
with. It is too soon to think of such
things vet," she continued, smiling,
"but some years hence it would make
me happy to see my son married to
just such a woman."
"Not quite so fast, mother," said I,
laughing a good deal to hide a little
boyish embarassment which I was
most anxious to conceal.
I found that Grace had become a
constant visitoi at my mother's, and
I did not fail to improve the oppor
tunity of becoming better acquainted
Grace sweet, noble Grace, with
her childlike simplicty and sensitive
woman's heart who could resist
her? I could not; my whole soul
was hers. In vain had I struggled
in vain had I called upon my vanity
(of which I had plenty to invoke) to
save mo from the mortification of
loving without return. I could not
stem nor control the passion which,
strong as a mighty whirlwind, had

As Grace rose lo leave the piano
I caught her hand, and unable longer
to repress the one thought that filled

She was gone before I had time to
prevent, it, or vecovtr from nay sur

lege, expecting to complete my Stud
ies will in a year. A year! How
long to he absent from the beloved
who was to me, I felt, henceforth
and forever, whether she re'.urned
my love r not, the nucleus around
which all my thoughts would re

her strange and unsatisfactory ans

her repetition of the same words her
remembrance of the lime she had
used tin in before; and this, then, was
the punishment for my insolence.
I tort u rid myself by bringing 'the
whole scene again and again to

rival beauties. I did study, however,
and studied hard, and at the end of
the term parsed the examination
with honor much to my mother's
pride and joy.
I determined to be wiser when I
saw Grace again to discover be

as I had done by foolish speeches.
In order to satisfy myself on that
point and also perhaps to gratify a
littie pique, when I returned- home I
did not go at once to see (J race, as
my feelings dictated, but waited un

spent an evening with us. Even
then though my heart was full of
tenderness for her, I affected cool
ness. I had made up my mind to
piay a part, surfer as I might, I
would act it out. There was a young
lady slaving with my mother at the
lime who dearly loved to flirt, and I
was quite ready to contribute to her
amusement. I devoted myself exclu
sively to her tiie whole eventng, and
felt l he sweetest pain I ever ex
perienced when I saw by Grace's
dear, changing, sensitive face that
she was deeply pained and wounded.
When this foolery had been car-

A. E. Bnrkhard, one of the mt
successful business men of Cincii
nati, in an address delivered he.'oiw
the Commercial club of tha city,
said: "I have cast my mind's ey.j
hurriedly back over my experience
in Cincinnati, and I am fully convinc
ed that in fifteen years, with the ad -vertising
I have done, I have pushed
my business to a standing that t
would have taken taken thirty year-t
to reach without advertising. li
truth, it is doubtful if I could ! avir

without the aid of newspapers. Cer

medium for making your lradr

Why Tlit-y OUca Fail.
Young men often fa-'d lo get on in
the world because they neglect small
opportunites. Not being faithful hi
little things, they are not promoted
to the charge of greater things. A
young man who gets a subordinate
situation sometimes thinks it not
necessary for him to give it much
attention, lie will wait till lis gets a
place of responsibility, and then he
will show people what he can do.
This is a very great mistake. What
ever his situation may be he should
master it in all its details, and per
form all duties faithfully. The habit
of doing his work thoroughly and
conscientiously is what is most likely
to enable a young man to make bis
way. With this habit, a person of
only ordinary abilities would out
strip one of greater talent who is in
the habit of slighting subordinate
matter?- But, after all, the adoption
