The Popular Capacily for Scandal.
One -if the most saddening ami
humiliating exhibitions which hu
man nature ever makes of itself, is
in its greedy credulity touching all
reports of the misdemeanors of good
men. If a man stand hbdi as a
moral foree in the community; rf he
stand asthe rehiiker and denouncer
of social and political sin; if he he
looked up to hy anv considerahle
ntimber of people as an example of
virtue; if t lie whole trend and pow
er of his hie be in a hiirh and "pure
direction;cif his personality and in
fluence render ativ allegation
against his character most improb
able, then most readily does any
such allegation lird eager believers.
It matters not from what source
the slander may come. Multitudes
will be iiilluenced by a report
against a good mairs character
from one who would not be believ
ed under oath in any matter involv
ing the pecuniary interest of liliy
cents. The slanderer may be noto
riously base may be a panderer to
the worst passions and the lowest
vices may be a shameless sinner
against social virtue may be a
thief, a notorious liar, a drunkard,
a libertine, or u harlot all this

j hang our heads with shame, or raise

thing as this is natural, it proves
'just one thing, viz., that these men

evil of others, especially of those
.who have been reputed to be emi
nently good, is an evidence of con
scious weakness under temptation,
or of conscious proclivity to vice
that finds comfort in eminent com
panionship. There is no better test Of purity
and true goodness than reluctance
to think evil of one's neighbor, and
absolute incapacity to believe an
evil report about good men except
upon the most trustworthy testi
mony. Alas, that this large and
lovely charity is so rare! Jh.it it is
only with those who possissthis
charity that men accused of sins
against society have an equal
chance with those accused, under
tlie forms of law, of crime. Kverv
man brought to trial lor crime k
pros urncd to be innocent until he is
proved to be guilty; but, with the
world at hug", every mr.n slandered
is presumed to be guilty until he
proves himself to be innocent, and
even then it takes the liberty of
doubting the testimony. livery"
jnati who rejoices in a scandal
thereby advertises the fact of his
own entrust woi thiness ; and cverv
maii who is pained by it, and refuses
to be impressed by it,uiiconscious
icveals his own purity. He cannot
believe a bad thing done by one he
regards :i a good man, simplv be
cause he knows he would not do it
hinisvo". He gives "credit to others
for the virtue that is consciously in
his own possession, while the base
men arouml him, whether Christian
in name or not, withhold that credit
because they cannot believe in the
existence of a virtue of which tho
are consciously empty. When the
Master uttered the words, ' Let
him that is without sin among you
first cast a stone at her," he knew
that none but conscious delinotlents
would have the disposition to do?
so; and when, under this rebuke,
every fierce accuser retired over
whelmed, He, t lie sink s, wrote the
woman's crime in the sand for
heavenly rains to efface'. If He
"could do this in a case of guilt not
disputed, it certainly becomes his
followers to stand together around
every cae ct their number whom
malice or revenge assails with slan
ders to which his or her whole lite
tiives the lie.
In a world full of influences and
tendences to evil,where every good
force is needed, and needs; to be
jealously cherished ami guarded,
there is no choicer treasure and no
more benelicieiit power ,lhan a
sound character. This is not only
the highest result of all the best
forces of our civilization, bub-it is
the builder of those forces in socie
ty and the State. Society cannot
afford to have it wasted or destroy
ed ; and its instinct of self-preservation
demands that it shall not be
sullered. r There is nothing so sen
sitive and nothing, so sacred as
character; and every tender charityt
and loyal fricndship,and chivalrous
aiil'ction,cand manly sentiment and
impulse, ought to entrench them
selves around every true character
in the community so thoroughly
that a breath of calumny shall be
as harmless as an idle wind. If
they cannot do this, then no man
is sale who refuses to mak terms
with the devil, and he is at liberty
to pick his victims where he will.

If we take a sordid view of the
matter, how many persons are there

more than one in three score. Can

ot t hem have a little more money
than will supply their indi-pensa-
hie physical, intellectual and moral
wants. It is plain then that they
cannot become eonsumer.s ol strong
drinks, without curtailing their nec
essary supplies of food, raimanl, in
tellectual refreshments and other
necessaries. Who then can aflord
to" drink? Say you "the rich?"'
So they can, so far as money is con
cerned. JJut is money the only

Ah, no. lie alone ought to drink
from the ruinous bowl who can
afford to incur its moral and phys
ical penalties can ailord to ruin
his own character and soul to im
poverish him celf, and make desolate
and cheerless his fireside to give
shame and sorrow to his father, his
mother, his brothers and his chil
dren and finally east himself into

A few evenings ago, two young
men dropped into St. Uose church,
where the usual high mass of Christ
mas Eve was being celebrated.
One of them had never been in u
Catholic church before, and was
altogether unacquainted with the
usages. As there was a very large
attendance, they could scarcely get
inside the door, but as thev stood
on the t hrcshohl, the inexperienced
one sp ike to the othc r :
"Say, Ben, what do they all
crowd around that bowl over there
"Why," was tho answer, "that's
a bowl of champagne punch. All
that come are welcome to a drink,
it being Christinas Eve, and I'll
warrant it's mighty good, too!''
"is that so? " Well, Em going to
try some of it, if I do get squeezed
And off went verdancy toward
the designated spot.
Presently he ret timed, ""-'wit h a
look of intense diogust on his face.
His companion highly amused in
"Well, did vou try it?"
"Xo," was the reply, "Just as I
got there, and was looking for the
cup, an old woman came in, and
stuck her hand into c-it, and I
wouldn't have drank it after that, if
I knew it was made by an angel.!"
A New York gentleman, upon
being asked by a friend for the
loan of a dollar, briskly replied :
"With pleasure;" but added imme
diately to his impecunious friend's
disgust, "Dear me, how unfortun
ate! Eve only but one lending dol

COURTESY OF BANCROFT LIBRARY,
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA,
cDo you wish to do something
towards making your home happy?
Do you desire that your brothers
and sisters should be "glad to have
you with them, and that you should
always be a welcome companion
to your parents or your children?
Do you want to have your society
coveted everywhere, and too feel,
the while, that vou ai e doing good
I as well as giving pleasure? Would
j you like to help people to think
I well, and :to' have them save their
best thoughts for you? Would
it please you to get all the good
you can out ot the people you know?
If so, learn to listen.
But first learn what listening is
for it is not merely the exercise
of tho sense of hearing. The stu-
! pidest of us all can keep ears open
and mouth shut. lo listen piop
erly means to make other people
talk properly. That is a social defi
nition, if it is not a Websterian
one. The good listener is n cause
of talking in others, -and by a
proper exercise of this valuable
and too scarce gift, makes the dif
fident say what they think, and
the verbose think what .they say.
For the greatest talkers are careful
when they iind they have a good
listener. They know that they
may not often be so fortunate, and
they talk their best. The adept
in listening may sometimes hear
more prosing than he likes, but if
he be skillful -this will not often
happen. When it is impossible
to get anything interesting or' use
ful out of a man, he. need be listen
ed to no longer. Every one of sense
will agree to that. . But it is aston
ishing how many good things some
very unpromising persons will say
if they bo properly ami conscien
tiously listened to.
To be sure it is very hard for
some persons to listen. They have
a gift for talking, and thov like to
exercise it. But these are the very
persons who should do a great deal
of listening. They know what a
luxury it is to talk, and they should
give their families and friends a
chance to learn the . art. "Besides,
like farmers, they will often find
much advantage in a rotation of
crops. A season of listening is
often a most excellent preparative,
for a season of talk.
It is olen supposed that ifa man
has a good thing to. say, he will
say it, but this is not necessarily
the case. Very often he never says
it, because no one will give him a
chance. He don't want to waste
his speech on fools, and the smart
folks want him to content himself
with ..hearing what they have to
say. This happens not in con
nection with very good things per
haps, but with things that might
lead to very good things every
dav and every hour, in thousands
of families all over the land to
say nothing of society.
There arc those who so seldom
have a chance to speak to interest
ed ears, that they gradually with
draw themselves into themselves,
where, not generally finding much,
they intellectually pine away.
Te be sure, we should not fail
to become good talkers, if we can;
but, do what we may, we can only
make one talker of ourselves, where
as, bv proper listening, we may
make a dozen talkers of either peo
ple. Frank 11. tocldon, in fccrib

A Sermon on " Push."
When cousin Will was home for
vacation, the boys always expected
plent y of fun. The last frolic be
fore he went back to his studies
was a long tramp after hazel nuts.
As they were hurrying along in
high glee thev came upon a dicour-age-d
'looking man and a discour
aged looking cart. y-'
The Cart was standing before an
orchard. The man was trying to
pull it up the hill to his own house.
The bovs did not wait to be invit
ed, but" ran to h'-lp with a good
will. "Push, pu-h," was the cry.
The man brightened up; the cart
trundled .along as fast as rheuma
tism would do it, and in live minutes
they all stood panting at tho top of
"Obliged to ye," said the man.
"vou just wait a minute;"' and he
hurried into the house, while t-wo
or three pink-aproned children
peeped eitit of the door.
"Now, boys," said cousin Will,
" this is a small thing; but I wish
we could all take a motto out of it
and keen it for life. "Push!" it is
just the word for a grand clear
morning like this.
" If anybody is in trouble, and
you set-it, don't stand back; push !
" Wherever there's a kind thing,
a happy thing, a p'.ea-ant thing, a
Christian thing, whether it is your
own or.not, whether it is home or
in town', at church or at school, just
help with ail your might; push!"
At that moment the farmer came
out with a dish of his wife's best
doughnuts, and a dish of his own
best apples; and that was tho last
of the little sermon.
From the English Medical Tress.
Considerable progress lias been
made in the production of a sub
stitute for paper that would be a
boon to hospitals as well as private
houses. The new wall decorations
to supercede paper hangings, and
paintjare thin sheets of metal
painteel over by a patented pro
cess. They are artistic in appear
ance, like most French product
and said to be durable, Tinfoil in
sheets, thickness of ordinary writ
ing paper, is the material on which
this new style of mural decoration,
including gilding,is executed. Tin
foil is pliable and supple,sullieiently
tough not to be easily torn, and
oilers a smooth and uniform sur
lace. It forms an excellent base
for the work executed upon it. It
also, possesses the advantage of
being water proof, a property well
known to architects and builders,
who frequently use it to cover
damp walls, on which, without,
that covering, any decorative work
would soon perish.
Tho process of executing the
painting on tin olfers no difficulty.
The sheets are manufactured of a
width and in lengths suitable to
their application on the surfaces to
be covered. At the manfactory in
Paris, the ordinary widths made
use of are from thirty to forty
inches, and the length five metres,
or rather meire.than five yards.
The application of the painted
metalie hangings to either wood,
stone, plaster or iron surfaces olfers
no dillicu'ty. The operation is
somewhat similar to putting up pa
per hangings, with this difference
