BY T. S. ARTHUR.
Mr. Thornton came home at his uual midday
hour, and as he went by the jarlor d'jr, he taw
his daughter, a Joun lady ut nineteen, lounging
un the sofa with a l jk in her hands The whirr
of his wife'ii SfwiriiT "'""I' tio to
at the same moment. Without pausm at the
parlor, he kept on to the room fruiu which came
the eound of industry.
Mrs. Thornton did not observe the entrance of
her husrtind. She was bending clue down over
her Wurk, and the noise f her macin'ne was
louder than his footsteps on the tlr. Mr. Thorn
ton etood Inking at her for some momenta witli
Uh, dear !' exclaimed the tired woman, let
ting her foot rest on the treadle, and ftraightening
herself up, 'this pain in my tide is almo-t beyond
Then why tl) you ait, ki'lingyourself there?"
eaM Mr. Thornton.
Mr. Thornton's a"ject was unusually Holier.
What's the matter? Why do you look so
serious?" asked his wife.
Because I feel serious," he answered.
Has anything gone wrong!" Mrs. Thorn
ton's countenance grew slightly troubled. Things
Lad gone wrong in her husband's business more
than once, and the had learned to dread the oc
currence of disaster.
TTungs are wrong all the time," was replied,
wiiu Home impatience oi manner
In ycur business?" Mrs. Thornton pi-oke a
1".. -t "
"So, nothing erecially out of the way there ;
but it's all wrong at home."
I don't understand you, Harvey. What is
wronj; at home, pray ?"
Wrong for you to eit in pain and exhaustion,
over that hewing machine, whilet an idle daugh
ter lounges over a novel in the jarlor. That's
what I wished to cay."
It isn't Effie's fault. She often asks to help
me. But I can't eee the child put down to
household drudgery. Jler time will come soon
enough. Let her have a little case and comfort
while fihe way."
' If we said that of our sons," replied Mr.
Thornton, and acted on the word, what efficient
men they would make for the world's work ! How
admirably furnished they would be for life's trials
and duties !
You are wrong in this thing, all wrong,"
continued the husband. And ad to paw and
comfort, as you nay, if Effie isa right-minded girl,
h will have more true enjoyment in the eon-fciou-met
that he is lightening her mother's
burdens, than it is pns-sible to obtain from the
fint novel ever written. Excitement of the
imagination is no substitute for that deep peace
of mind that ever aecomjainies and succeeds the
right discharge of daily duties. It is a poor com
pliment to Effie's moral fense to fcuppose that she
can bo content to sit with idle hands, or to em
ploy them in light frivolties, while her mother is
worn down with toil beyond her strength. Hes
ter, it must not be !"
And it shall not be!" said a quick, firm
Mr. Thornton and his wife started, and turned
to the epcaker, who had entered the room unob
served, and beea a listener to nearly all the con
versation we have recorded.
It shall not be, father !" And Effie came and
stood by Mr. Thornton. Her face was crimson :
her eves flooded with tears, through which light 1
was flashing ; her form diawn up erectly ; her
manner resolute. It it-n't all my fault," she
aid, and he laid her hand on her father's arm.
I've aked mother a great many times to let me
help her, but the always puts me off. and says
it s easier to do a thing herself than to show
another. Maybe I am a litth dull. But every
one has to learn, you know. Mother did not get
her hand in fairly with that sewing machine lor
two or three weeks, and I'm certain it wouldn't
take roe any longer. If sne'd only teach me how
to use it, I could help her a great deal. And in
deed, father, I'm willing!"
Spoken in the right s-pirit, my daughter,"
said Mr. Thornton, approvingly. Girls frhould
bo usefully employed as well a boys, and in many
thin; most likely to b required of them when
they become women in the reponcible position of
wives and mothers. Depend upon it, Effie, an
idi- girlhood is not the way to a cheerful woman
hood. Learn and do, now, the very things that
will We required of you in after years, and then
yoa will have a required facility. Habit and skill
ma'-ie easy what might come hard, and be felt as
Ani would you have her abandon all self
imr rovement," said Mrs. Thornton. ' Give up
music, reading, rociety "
' There are," replied Mr. Thornton, as his
wife paused for another word, some fifteen or
sixteen hours of each day, in which mind or hand
should be rightly employed. Now let us see how
Effio is spending thes long and ever recurring
periods of time. Come my daughter, sit down.
We have this subject furl? before m. It is one
of a life long importance to you, and should be
well considered. How is it in regard to the em
ployment of your time ? Take yesterday, for in
stance. The records of a dav will help us to get
towards the result after which we are now search
ing." Effie sat down and Mr. Thornton drew a chair
in front of his wife and daughter.
Take yesterday, for instance," said the father.
How was it spent ? You rose at seven, I think?"
Yes, sir ; 1 came dawn just as tho breakfast
bell was rung," said Effie.
And your mother was up at half past five, I
know, and feeling so weak that she could hardly
dress herself. But for all this she was at work
until breakfaet time. Now, if you had risen at
six, and shared your mother's work until aeven,
you would have taken an hour from her day's
burdens, and certainly lost nothing from your
music, self-improvement or social intercourse.
How was it after breakfast ? How was the morn
I practice! on the piano an hour after break,
So far so good. What then
I naJ 'The Cavalier until eleven o'clock."
Mr. Thornton shock his bead, and nske-1, After
!een, how was the time spent ?"
I dres?ed myself n J went out. !
At what time did you no out ?'
A little after twelve o'clock.
An htur was epe&t in dres-inji ?'
Wbert dU yon go?"
Boyd, anl we tuck a walk
And case heme j jst in tiro for dinner ?
I met you at the door."
How was it after dinner?"
I slept from three until fixe, and then tot k a bath
and dreed myself. From six uutil tea time, I eat
at the parlor window.
AnJ after tea "
Read Catalier until I went to bed."
At what hour "
Elev .n o'clock."
Now we cn make up the account," sa d Mr.
Thornton. You rose at seven and retired at eleven.
Sixteen hcurs. And from your account cf the day,
but a -ingle hour was spent in anything uefu- that
was the hour at your pimo. Now, your mother was
up at half past five, an J went to bed. from theer in
ability to sit at her work any longer, at half past
nine. Sixteen hours for her, also. How much lead
ing did you do at that time?"
And Mr. Thornton looked at his wife.
Reading ! DoD't talk to me of reading ! I've
no time to read !"
Mrs. Thornton answered a little impatiently. The
contrast of her daughter's idle hours- with ber own
life cf exhausting toil, did not effect her very pleasant-
" And yet," said Mr. Thornton, you were always
very fund of reading, and I can remember when no
day went by without an hcuror two passed with your
bocks. Did you lie down after dinner ?"
Of course not."
' Nor take a pleasant walk on Broadway ? Nor
sit at the parlor window with Effie? How about
There was no reply.
Now, the case is a very plain one," continued
Mr. Thornton. "In fact, nothing could be plainer.
Ycu spend from fourteen to bixteen hours every day
in hard woik, while Effie, taking yesterday as a
sample, spends about the tame time in w hat is little
better than idleness. Suppose a new adjustment
were to take place, and ESIie were to be employed in
helping you for eight hours every day, she would
still nave eigni Hours left for Sfl'-inipr(,vement and
recreation, and you, relieved from your present over
take l condition, might get back a portion of the
health and spirits of which these too heavy household
duties have robbed you."
Father " said Effie, speaking through tears that
were falliug over her face, I never saw things in
this light. Why haven't you talked to me before ?
I've often felt as if I'd Lke to help mother. But she
never gives me anything to do ; and if I otferto help
her, she says, You can't do it. or, ' I had rather
do it myself.' Indeed, it isn't all my fault !'
It may not have been in the pist," replied Mr.
Thornton. " But it certainly will be in the future,
utile?? there is a new arrangement i f things. It is a
f.ilse social sentiment that lets daughttrs become
idlers, while mothers, fathers and gons take up the
daily burden of wcik, and bear it through all the
Mrs. Thornton did not come gracefully into the
new order cf things prcpobed by her husband and
accepted by Effie. Falce pride in her daughter, that
future lady ideal, and an inclination to do all herself,
rather than take the trouble to teach another, were
all so many impediments. But E2ie and her f ither
were both in earnest, and it was net long before the
mother's face bgan to lose its look of weaiinc-i-s, and
her languid frame to come up to nn erect beating.
She couid find time for the old plettbure in bucks, n w
and then, for a healthy walk iu the fctittt, and a call
on some valued friend.
And was Effie the worse (or th:s change ? Did the
burden she was sharing with her mother depress her
shoulders, and take the lightness from her ttep ?
Not so. The languor engendered by idleness, which
had began to show itself, disappeared in a few weeks;
the color came warmer into her cheeks ; her eyes
gained in brightness. She was gruwing, in fact,
more leautitul, lor a mind more cheerfully conscious
of duty was moulding every lineurnent cf her coun
tenance into new expression.
Did self-improvement stop ? O, no ! From one to
two hours were given to close practice every diy. Her
mind becoming vigorous in tone, instead of enervated
by idleness, chose a better order of rending than hid
been indulged before, and she was growing towards
a thoughtful, cultivated, intelligent womanhood.
She also found time, amid her home duties, for an
Lour twice a week with a German teacher, and she
began, also, to cultivate a natural taste for drawing.
Now that she was employing her time usefully, it
setMued wonderful how much time she found at her
disposal for usuful work.
How cheerful and companionable she grew ! She
did nut seeoi like the Effie Thornton of a few months
before. In fact, the sphere cf the entire household
was changed. As aa idler, Effie. had been a burden
to all the rest, and the weight of that burden hd
been sufficient to depress, through weariness, the
spirits of all. But now that she was standing up, j
self sustained, but a sharer in the burden of each, all ;
hearts came back to a lighter measure, beating ryth- :
mically and in conscious enjoyment.
A Christiiins Fenst in Africa.
Mr. Keade, in his work on 44 Savage Africa,"
gives the following account of a remarkable re
past he once partook of in that country :
That Christmas morning I enjoyed a stupend
ous repast. The mouths of members of the Ac
climatization Society will water as they read. It
was a collection of gastronomical rarities ; a tis
sue of eccentricities de cuisine.
We commenced with snails, brought from
France in barrels filled with flour, which t ad
preserved them admirably. They were prepared
au fratin, and we forked them out of their re
treats with instruments unpleasantly resembling
toothpicks. We had also oysters torn from trees.
Our fish consisted of African soles, carp, and
mullet. Detestable in themselves, they illustrated
thi skill of the cuisinier.
Then followed the gazwlle cutlets a la fayiltotc.
Two small monkeys served cross-legged and w ith
liver sauce, on toast. Stewed iguana, which was
much admired. A didi of roasted crocodile's
eggs. Sme slices of smoked elephant (from tho ;
interior,) which none of us could touch. A few
agreeable plates of fried locusts, land crabs (pre- .
viously fattened,) and other crustaccio. The .
breasts of a mermaid, or manatee ; the grand :
bonneboucbe of tho repast. Some boiled alliga- !
tor. which had a tasto between pork and cod,
with the addition of a musky flavor. Ani some '
hif popotaruous staks aui pnmtnes dc tr.rre.
W e might have obtained a better dessert at
Convent Garden, where one can see the bright ;
side of the tropics without the trouble or expense
of traveling. Iut we had pine-apples, oranges, '
roasted plantains, silver bananas, pa paws (which,
when made into a tart with cloves, might be
taken f apples,) and a variety of fruits which
hid long native names, curious shapes, and all
of them very nasty tastes. But I must not omit
the famous palm-cabbage.
It is erroneously supposed that it i peculiar to
one tree which Ls oiled the cabbage-palm. It is, .
however, the bud of the tree, 60 to speak, and is
found in all the palms, though in some it is red,
in others white. It is a great luxury ; indeed, to
eat one is like eating a whole tree, for the palm
always dies when the cabbage is cut out.
Throughout this country, therefore, it is forbid
den food ; but Europeans may sometimes infringe !
the law by paying a large sum. When raw it ;
tastrs like celery, but when stewed au sauce blanc,
as upon this occasion, it is not to be compared
with any vegetable of mortal growth. It must ;
have been tho ambrosia of the gods. !

I cV.lel for Helen
People may think as they flense, but the truth
is, that till one becomes the head of a faoiily and
a father, he can scarcely bo calhl a man. Ex
ceptions there are, honorable, conspicuous. In
stances may 1 -duted out, though fur from
common, it is believed, where one not advanced
to the dignity supposed, and so not ubjecttd to
its numerous trials and victories; defeats, too,
sometimes, it must be confessed ; have yet had
hearts as liberal and expanded, as aiay who have
assumed conjugal and parental respor.sibilitits.
Nevertheless, in general, those helis are needed
to direct what there is uuselfish, serious, gener
ous and sympathizing in the soul! Men, and
women t o, grow hard !y living for themselves
alone. With little or nothing exterior to disturb
their emotional nature, their affections are apt
to settle quietly around theiiif'lves as a centre,
and finally crystalize there. Such a person may
be a miracle of virtue and propriety, beautiful
even in its transparent purity, but after all as
hard as the diamond, if not as cold.
One needs trie claims upon him as husband and
father, to take him out of himself and awaken
his solicitudes and cares for others. The wear
and tear he is subjected to from these relations do
him good: They are wholesome exercise for the
heart, as labor is for the muscles. We may not
teM exactly why it is so, but of the existence of
the fact there is striking evidence in the experi
ence of the mother, who loves that child best,
which has given her most anxiety and trouble.
For whom is all the tenderness of the father
lavished? Is it not upon his wayward boy, his
prodigal son ? The parent is chastened and made
better by having wife and children dependent on
him for f leasure, comfort and support. The lit
tle vexations, sometimes great ones, perhaps,
which they occasion, do him no harm, but the
contrary. His own character is matured while
he is laboring and Buffering to shape that of
others. He who does not suffer, cannot know
half the sufferings there are in man.
Not only is th heart of a man made better by
assuming the obligations of a husband and father,
but his mind is also greatly improved. A new
horizon opens to hi in. Hefore, he was traveling
through the world in a valley ; he now ascends
to higher ground, anu for the first time sees man
kind as they are, and begins to comprehend so
ciety, its origin, its woik, and destiny. He now
awakens to the glorious call ;f duty, i '.stead of
pleasure, to which he only listened before. Not
that pleasure is denied him now, but it comes of
itself in the train of duty discharged, instead of
being solicited us formerly, for its own sake.
This revolution, produced by his change of posi
tion, is marked upon his countenance where it is
no less visible than in his changed conduct. The
man is stamjed upon it in every serious, thought
ful lineament, where cheerfulness and sedatcness
have taken the place of meaningless gaity, frivo
lity and want of sober aim. If any one says he
is acquainted with vry many single persons of
large and sympathetic hearts, and minds full of
liberal thoughts ; it is granted. Place that man,
so admirably endowed by nature, at the head of
n family, for which he was doubtless intended,
and he would be twice a man, and his usefulness
increased four-fold. Ncicark Sentincf.
