And then a tall, plea.ant-iaccd young

"Was it n canvas bag," said ho, "with

And thus, to my infinite relief, I found
my treahuro undistuibed, and, all-forgot-ful

with a stagnant pond in front, nnd two

with a fire of damp logs Hulking in the

"llo's an artist, miss, as pnints pie-

dreadful big prices for n bit of canvas
as yon could covor with a dinner plato."
Mr. Almyor came out to the farm

brought mo a bunch of rhododendrons
nnd sat and chntted with Cousin Tatbey
for a long time. Tho old crono eyed mo
keenly nfter Iih was gone.

I stayed xvith Cousin Patsoy a month,
doing all the drudgery of her wretched

cheerlul face through it all, and then
sho died died suddenly and alone, in
the dead of night.
They buried her, and I prepared to

John Aylmer had made me promise
that if he came for me in tho autumn,
I would be his wife.
"We shall bo poor, Flossy," he said ;
"but lovo is bettor than gold."
I xvas sitting in the depot, waiting for
tho trnin, with John talking to me, when
old Mr. Dodge, the white-whiskered law

".Miss Flossy," he said, "perhaps
you had not bolter go East just yot.
There's a will, you knoxv, and all Miss
Pounsett's property is loft to you.'

A man who hasn't a dollar iu the

The xvhqle xvork is op.-n now to men

Hani work must bo dono if you would
do anything well in this life.. Having a
talent for a thing does not tako tho

Nox-or feel ashamed of your work
if itis nccosary or right for you to do
it it is dignified and honorable, and
somothing to bo proud of, in a humble
way. A boy who has tho right sort of
pride, born of solf-repcct and true man
hood, is not aslfamed to do honest work,
but ho is ashamed to bo dependent on
an) body, he is ashamed to dream and
build air-castles while his father toils in
tho office, or shon, or on tho farm, and
his mother is weary with her domestic
caros and labors.
Downright lazinoss is at the bottom of
a great deal of the so-called pride about
work. A loafer who will stand around
the cornors all day and lot somebody
elso earn tho bread ho eats is generally
too "proud" to work.
Thomas Jellerson once entertained at
his . house several distinguished foreign
ers. A carpenter who was at work on
the place, and expected nothing more
than to eat after these grand-folks xvere
done, was invited to the table with them
and always served first. Tho man felt
cmbarassed, and went to the butler to
toll him he was afraid Mr. Jefferson
would not like it, but the servant snid
ho hnd his orders from Mr. Jefferson,
who had told linn to serx'0 the carpenter
first, that his guests might sec that in
America a respectable mechanic was ns
good as a nobleman. .
Judge , a well known jurist
living near Cincinnati, had onco occa
sion to sond to tho village for a carpen ter,
and a steady young felloxv appeared
with his tools.
"I want this fence mended to keep
out tho cattle. There aro some un
plained boards use them. It is out of
sight from tho house, so you peed not
tako time to make a. neat job. I will
pay you $1 50." When he returned the
board were plained and numbered
ready for nailintr.
"1 told you that this fenco xvas to bo
covered with Tines," ho said angrily.
"I do not caro how it looks".
"I do," said the carpenter, gruffly,
caicfully measuring his xvork. When
it was finished there was no pail of the
fenco as thorough in tinish.

Ten years afterward, tne judge had

How to Save our Boys
Women who have sons to rear, nnd
dread the demoralizing influence of bad
associates ought to understand tho nnl
turc of young manhood. It is exces
sively restless. It is dtsturbed by vague
ambitions; by 'thirst for action, by long
ings for excitement, by irrepressible de
sires to touch life in manifold ways. If
you, mothers, rear your sons so that their
homes arc associated w ith repression of
natural instincts, you will be sure to
throw them in the society that in sorfle
measure can supply the need of their
hcnrt. They will not go to the
public houses at first for tho'lox'e of
iiquor very fexv peoplo like the taste of
liquor; they go for the animated and
hilarious companionship thoy find there,
which they discovor does bo much to re
press the disturbing restlessness in their
breasts. Bee to it then, that their homes
compete xvith the public places m
attractiveness. Open your blinds by day
and light bright hres at night. Illumin
ate your rooms. Hang pictures- upon
your wall. Tut books and newspa
pers upon your, tabic, iiavo mu
sic and entertaining games. Banish
demons of dullness and apathy that have
so long ruled in the household, and
bring in mirth and good cheer. Invent
occupations for your sons. Stimulate
their ambitions in worthy directions.
While you make home their delight, fill
them with higher purposes than mere
pleasure. i neiuer uiey siuui puss uuj
hood nnd enter upon manhood with re
fined tastes and noble ambitions depends
on you. Heliex'e it possible that, with
