A Pl'IL BACK.
A little Pull Uiu-k sought one day
The 'gates of Paradise;
St Peter wiped his Bectacles,
And rubbed hi. ancient eye.,
And throng of female angels came
With curious gaze the while,
Intent, as ladies always are,
To see the latest style.
The Saint put on his glasses then
An observation took.
"What! What!" he .aid, "this traverse.
The law of musn't look."
" Tied back in front ! Piled up behind !
'Twill never do, I fear!
The thing is too ridiculous
You cannot enter here."
What did she do! My curious friend
She got behind a tree ; "'
And in a jiffy she was dressed,
As angels ought to be.
St Peter kissed her then, and said
"Pass in, my little dear; -;
But mind you musn' introduce
Such naughty fashions here.
THE GAMBLER'S END.
From one of Rev, Mr. Murray's stories.
9'Von.l tilt' bnliam ticket the

each looking lull t tin other. Bmh

' "You count," snid the gambler,
"One, two," said detective, "three,
One pistol nlono sounded. The
gambler s had (ailed to explode.
'You've won, 3-011 needn't deal
again," said the gambler. And then
ho dropped. The red stain on his
white shirt front showed where he
"There' some lint r.nd bandage,"
said tho detective, nnd he flung 1
small package into the -rambler's lap.
"I hope you won't die, Dick Kay
mond." ''Oh, it was all fair, Carson," said
the other carlessly. "I've held ft
poor hand fron the start "
He paused; for the detective had
rushed on, and he was alone. Twe.itv
rods further on, the detectiye caught
dp willi the trapper, who was calmly
recharging his piece. On tho edge
of the ledge above, the haft bree ' lay
dead, the lips drawn back from his
teeth nnd his u.rly onuntenanco dis
Jotted with hate nnd rnce. A rifle,
whose muzzle smoked, lay at his side;
and the edge of the trapper's left ear
'Tvs shot Pick Kaymond by the
balsam thicket." said the detective.
'I'm altaid lie's hard hit."
"I'll go nnd see the boy," answered
the trapper. "You'll find Henry fur
der tip. There's only two runnin'.
You nnd he can bring 'em in."
The old trapper saw, as he descend
ed the hill, the body icelining on ti e
mosses at the edge of tliP balsam
ihicke. The enrt,h gave back no
sound ns he advanced, nnd he reached
the canibl r, and, wns standing almost
at his very feet, ere the young man
was aware of his presence; but ns the
trapper passed between him Ami Hie
shining water, he turned his gaze up
to'tlio trapper's face, and, alter study-
inir tho crave lines for n moment
"You've won the gairje, od man.''
The trapper for'a moment made no
reply. He looked steadfastly into
the young rpan's countenance, fixed
tnseyeson the re.1 stain on the ich
breast, and then said :
'Shell I look at the bole, boy?"
The gambler smiled pleasantly and
nodded bis head, saying. "It'" the
natural thing to do in jhese' cases, I
believe." Lifting the hands he tin
buttoned the collar, nnd unscrewed
the soltaire st ml from tho white bosom.
Tin trapper knelt by the young man's
-i.le, and laving buck the linen fro-n
the cl.est, wiped the blood slain with
in. cent linltromine wnnc sKin,
and carefully studied the edges of the
wound, seeking to ascertain the direo
tion which the bullet bad taken as it
penetrated thefl.sh. At last he drew
his lace back, hud Ji ted nimself to
his feet, not a shade in the expression
of his face revealing his thought
' Is it tn v las', deal, old man J" asked
the gnrn)ib r carelessly.
"I fi ve seen a gnod mapy wounds,"
answered the trapper, "and I have
noted the dir-clion of a good many
bullets, and I never knowed a man
live who was hit where ye be cf the
lead had the slant inward, ns the
iiiece had that has gone into ye."
For a moment the young man made
no n dIv. No change came to his
countenance." Ho turned his eyes
Irorn the trapper's face and looked
nleiisentlv off toward the water. He
even whistled a line or two of an old
, , balla.t. then lit paused, and
drawn h.p- by the rnaVnefism of
Uie sieauy K which me rjt-n i mo
j (rap,,er jled opon him, he looked
1 ...ain' into the old min'i lace, and

wish that yer years might be many
"I fancy there's a good many who
will bo glad to hear I'm out of it,"
was the careless response.
''I don't doubt ye have yer faults,
boy," answered tho trapper, "and I
dar say ye have lived loosely, and
did many deeds that were undid, but
the best use ot lite to leartwhow to
live, and I feel sartin ye'd have got
older, and made the last halt of your

"You aren t fool enough to believe
what tho hypocritical church mem
bers talk, are you, John Norton?
You dou't believe' that theru'tj any
jugdment day, do yon ?"
"1 non t know much about church
members," answered the trapper,
for I ve never ben in tho settle
ments ; leastwise, I've never studied
in the habits of the crelurs, and I
daro say l,hey differ, be n' good and
bad, and I seed some that was sariin
ly vagabonds. No, I don't know
much about church members, but I
sartinly believe; vis, I know there'll
be a day when the Lord, shall je.lge
the livni'. nrid tin dead; nnd the hon
est trapper shall stand on omt side,
and the' vagabond that pilfers his'
skins and steals his traps stand on
the other. This is what tho book
savs, and it sartinly seems reasonable;
tor Hie oee.is mat uo oui on mo arm
be of two sorts, and t he folks that do
m bo of two kinds, and atweon the
two, hti Lord, if ho notes anything,
must make a dividin' line."
'And when do v'o'n think tint this
judgment is, John NortfJn ?" asked
the gambler, as it no was actually en
joying tne crude but honest idea ol
his companion. 1 ho trapper liefi
tated a moment before ho spoke, then
he said. ,
"I conceit that tho judgment bo
always goin' on. It's a Court that
never adjourns, and tho deserter, and
the knaves and tho disobedient in the
regiment bo always on trial. Hilt
conceit that there comes a ay to
every man, good and bad, when the
records of his deeds be looked over
from the start, and tho good nnd the
bad counted up ; and in that day he
gits final judgment, wheth r it bo for
or agin linn. Ami now, noy, con
tinued the old man srleinnly with a
tonce of infinite tenderness in the
vibrations ol his voice, "ye bo nigh
the iedgment day. yerstll, and tho
deeds ye have did, Goth good and tho
bad, will passed id review.
"I reckon there isn't much chance
for mo if your view is sound, John
Norton." And for the first time his
lono lost its cheerful recklessness.
'The Court be a Court of matey ;
and tho Jedge looks upon 'em that
comes up lor trial as cf ho was their
"That etids it, old man," answered
tho gambler. "My lather never sho 'cd
me any i.iorcy wii.;ii I was a boy. It
ho had. I shouldn't have been here
now. If I did a wrong deed, I gol it
to the last inch of the lash," and tho
words w re most intensely bitter bo
cause spoken so quietly.
"Tho fathers of the 'arth, boy, bo
not liko the father of heaven, for I
have seen 'cm correct their children
bevond reason, ahd without marcy
They whipped in their rage, nnd not
in their wisdom; they whipped because

ho sorter forgives in a lump. lis, he
subtracts Ml he can Irons in.-evil we
have did, boy, and if that isn't enough
to satisly bis li elin.a toward a man
that might have been different cf he'd
had a lair start, he jest wipes the whole
row of figures clean out at ihea-kin'."
"At the asking?" said the gambler;
that's a mighty quick game. Did
V jii ever pray, John .Norton.'
artin, sartui 1 ie a prayin man,
s.id the trapper, sturdily.
"At the asking?" murmured the
gambler softly -'
".Nartin, boy," answered the trapper,
'that's l:e line the trail takes, yc cart
depend on it; "and jt will' lring ye to
the end ot th great clcarin' in peace.'!
"It's a quick deal," said the gambler,
speaking' to himself, utterly uncon
scious of the incongruity of his speech
to bis thought. I'll'" a q k de:r1, but
I can see that it might end as he Bay's,
it the feeling was right."
For a moment iiolhinj was said.
The tripper stood looking steadfastly
d 'at the younu man 00 the moss, as he
lay with his quiet lace turned up 10
the sky, to whiWe c!or had already
come the first shade of the awful white-
Up the rrountain a rifle cracked.
Neither stirred. A red squirrel r n
out urx'D the limb, snook the silence
led eyes lit i
, - ,
Uhen sat gazing with Etartlcd eyes
into lraginenta wiin
the two men undcrnottli.
"Can you pray, old niati?" asked tho
":5ar.tainly," answered tho trapper.
"Can you pray in words?", asked
the gambler again.
Fot a moment tho trapper hesitated.
Then ho said; '"I can't say that I can.
No. I sartainly can't say that I, could
undertake it with a reasonable chance
of gittin' through; leastwiseit wouldn't
bo in a way to help a man any."
"Isthero any way, old man, in which
we can go partners?" nskbd the gam
bler, tho vocabulary of his profession
still clung to him in tho solemn coun
seling. "I was thinkin' of that," answered
tho trapper; "yis, I was thinkin' ef wo
couldn't sorter jiuo works, and Oiich
help tho other by doin' his own part
himself. Yis," conl inued tho old man,
after a moment's reflection, "the plan's
a good, tin yo pray for yerself, and
I'll pray for myself and ef I can git
in anything that seems likely to do yo
sarvice, ye can count on it, as yo can
on a grooved, barrel."
"And now, boy," said tho trapper,
with a sweetly solemn' enthusiasm,
such as faith might givo to 9 suppli
cating saint-which lighted his tenturcs
until his countenance fairly shone with
a light which, ciimo out ot it, rather
than' upon it from the sun oveiheal
"now, boy, remember that the Lord is
Lord of the woods, as well as of the
cities; and that ho heareih the prayiu'
of the poor hunter under tho pines, as
well ns the great preachers in iqj pul
pit, nnd that when sins be heavy, and
Unth bo nigh, llis car and His heart
be both open." 1
Iho trapper knelt on the moss nt
the gambler s feel. Ho clasped th.e
fingers of his great hands until they
interlaced, nnd lifted his wrinkled faco
upward, lie said not a word; but the
strongly chiseled lips, seamed with
age, moved nnd twitched now nnd
then, and ns the silent prayer wont on,
two great te: rs leave the protection ol
the closed lids and roll down the nig
ged cheek. The gambler also closed
his eyes; then his hands quietly stole
one into the other, an I, avoiding the
bloody slain, rested on his bro ist; nnd
thus, the old man who had lived be
vond tho limit ot man's day, nnd the
young one cut down tit tho threshold
ot m a tu 10 life the 0110 kneeling on
the moss, with UisfiiGo lifted to Heaven,
ho other lying on tho mosses with his
face turned toward the same sky, with
out word or uttered speech prayed
to the divine mercy which beyond the
heaven and tho sky saw the two men
underneath the pints, and met, wo may
not doubt',' with needed answer the
silent upgoing prayer.
Iho two opened their eyes nearly
it the same instant. Ihey looked lor
a moment at each other, nnd then tho
gambler feebly lifted his hand, nnd
put it in tho broad palm of tho trapper,
Pot n word was said. JNo word was
needed. Sometimes men understand
each other belter than by Salkm
Then tho gambler picked the diamond
s,tud from the spot where it rested,
slipped tho solitaire from his finger,
and said, ns ho handed them to the
"There's a girl in Montreal that will
like these. You will find her picture
insido my vest, when you bury me
Her address is insido the picture case,
You will take them to her, John Nor
"She shall havo them lroui my own
hand," answered tho trapper, gravely.
"Yon needn't disturb tho picture,
John Norton," said the gambler, "it's
just as well, perhaps, to lot it' lio where
it is; it's been there" eight yeais. You
understand what I mean, old man?''
"I understand," answered tho trap
per, solemnly; "the picture shall stay
where it is."
'The pistols," rpsumed the gambler,
and ho glanced at i,ho one lying on
the moss, "I give to you. You'll find
them true. You will accepl them?"
The trapper bowed his head. It is
doubtful if he could speak. For sev
eral minutes there was silence. The
trapper look the gambler's hand, as if
it had been his own boy. Indeed,
perhaps the young man had found bis
father at last; for surely it isn't fresh
that makes fatherhood. Once the
young man moved as if he would rise.
Had he been able lie would have died
with his arms around the old man's
neck. A it was, the strength ws
unequal to the impulse. He lifted his
eyes 10 the old man's face lovingly;
uioved his body as if ho would gel a
little nearer, and, as a child might
speak a loving thought aloud, said,
"I am glad I met yon, John Norton,"
and with the saying of the sweet words

Ho solemnly picked up tho diction

for a few minutes nnd closing tho
book leaned back ami said : "Mad

writings bearing on your case, but I
think 1 seo 1L0 remedy, When you
get homo give tho bouso a good
sweeping, and don't leave nny apple
cores or base ball uluos in U10 cor

a clou n collar around your neck, shine
up your car rings, tie on a nice white
apron, and ns you hear tho old boy
coming up tho paih to night striko

bho was red in tho lace as ho
paused, but she remcniberod that sho
hud only two hair pins in her head,
ono slice was untied, and thoro were
three grenso spots on her dross in

Brollicr Gardner on Extravagant Dress.
Brother Gardner made tho follow
ing remarks on opening the lust meet
ing of the Lime Kiln club: "I has
painfully obsorted a disposisshun on
do part o' cerling members of dis club
to get it head a loutlo too fast. I doan
call any one any names, but dur ar'
members widin do circmnferenco of
my voice who am sportin' slccvn but
tons us big us fried cakes, who am
wenr'n,' reg'lar cloth collars, wid gen'
ooino starch lii dem, who haz der butcs
blacked, who carry canes, who haz
der clothes made by a tailor, an' who
impugn aroun uo streets on Sunday
wid plug hats 011! II (ley can afford
such things it am all right, but I know
how hard de times ar', an' I know dat
money laid out in dat way had better
bo put out 111 wood for de cook stove,
shoes for do chil'cn.or paying-up house
rent. 1 know dat it ar human natur,
to want good clozo, an' to w'ar do hat
slanted on do year, but yo might' call
a canary bird an caglo all day long an'
you couldn t increnso de size ot his
body nor gin him nny moro lung pow
er, weizn t called upon to pile up
dor.gony nor cord upde latest fashuns;
Nobody expects dat we own bank
stocks, sheers in do gas companies or
hcv rich uncles in Knglum. It will
satisfy all men if do black man pays
lor his meat an' flour, keeps even with
his house rent, uses folks squar' an'
hoiief.l, an' 'pears at church wid a
clean suit on his back an' reaptc' for
dc Lnwd in his heart. Drap dem side
board collars! ' Drap dem tlecve but
tons! Keep dem lutes limber by de
applicashuii o' castor ile or bacon
gruese! Usy detn caries fur firewood,
shorten up ilem flying ccat-tails, air

doan jino in wid do turiiilur in dis

real 'sensible tnrtdic ki to see a man
steppin' squar out from de knee jint,
keepin' bis feet aroun' all de turns
without a skip, an' comiu' home uner
do wire wid business in his eye an''
