But a widow all the while.

Will her handsome face beconme;
Aro you angry I sle is wretched,
Lonely, friendless, tearful, dumb;
Are you mirtLhfil 1 how her laughter,
Silver-soumlin, will ring out,
She can litie, and catch and play you,
As the anger does the trout.

A WORD TO YOUNG LADIES.
- We wish to say a word to you, young la
dies, about your influence over young men.
.Did you ever think of it? Did you ever
realize that you could have any influence at
all over theni? We believe that a young
lady, by her constant, consistnt, Christian
example, may exert an untold power. You
do-not know the respoet, and almost wor
hip which young mncH, no matter how wicke. I
they may be themselves, pay to a consis
tiit, Christian lady, be she young-or old.
A gentlenmn once said. to a lady. who
boarded in .thevsaite house with him, that
hlif was coastant proof of the truth of
th Chriitian ieligion. Often the simple
equest of a l:dy- will keep a young muan
from doing wwng. We have known this
to be the case very frequently; and young
men have been kept from breaking the Sab
bath, from drinking, from chewing, just be.
cause a lady whom they respected, and for
whom they had an affection, requested it. A
tract given an invitation to go to church. a
request that your friend would read the Bi
ble daily, will often be regarded, when inore
powerful appeals from other sources would
fall unheeded iiph- his heart.
Many of the gentlemen whom you mieet
in society are atway from the influence o1
parents and sisters-and they will respond tc
- any interest takens in their welfare. We all
speak of a young, man's ..langer from evil
associates, andi the very bad influence whict
his. dissipated gentlemen companions have
over him. We believe it is all true, that i
gentlerman's character is formed to a grea
extent, by the ladies tilat lhe associates witl
lefore he becomes a comiplete mnan of the
world ! We think, in other words, that
young man is pretty much what. his sisters
and young lady frienids choose-to make him
We knew a fainily wvhere the sisters encour
ing it was mnanly, and to mingle with.gay
dissijatled fiillowsu, becauise they thought i
- "sart;" and he did mingle with them, uin
titii became~ just like them, body and soul
and abused the same sisters shamefully
The-influence began farther back than wit!
his gentlemen companions. It began-with hi
sisters, and Viras carried on through the form
iug youmrs of his character. On the othe
hand, if sisters are watchful and affectionate
they may, in various ways-hy enterini
into any nettle plan wvith interest, by intro
ducing their yo lager brothiers to good ladies
society-!eed them along, until their char-ac
ter is formedl, andi then a haigh toined respec
for ladies;-and a manly self respect will keej
them from mingling with low society.
if a young man. sees that the religior
which in youth he was taught to venerate
- is lightly . thought of, and perhaps sneerec
at, by the young ladies wvith whom he asso
crates, we can hardly expect him to think i
is the thing for him. Let none say that the~
have no influence at all. This is not possi
ble. You -cai~not live withbut having som<t
sort of influence, aniy .more than you car
live without breathing. One is just as un
avoidabio as the other.
Beware, then, whlat kind of influence it i
that you arc coimstantly exerting. An invi
tation to take a glass of wine, or to play i
game of cards, may kindle the fires of in
. temperance or gambling, which will bumrr
forever. A jest giveni at the expense o
religion, in a light, trifluig manner in th<
house of God, or any of the numerons ways h
which you may show your disregard 1o'r th<
souls of others, may be the me~ans of ruin
inmg others for time and eternity.-Gienio C
,Scott, in the Home Journal.
A H0.1E WITHOUlT A DAlUGHTER.
"A home without a girl in it is only hall
Qhlest; it is an orchard without blossoms,
anid a spring without song. A house full 01
sons is like Lebanon with its cedars. bui
daughters by the fireside, are like roset
WVell may the daughter of the household
be compai-ed to the apple-blossoms, spring.
songs and the roses of Shmaron. When shce
is there, the eye and the ear-of those whc
love her are satisfied ; when she departs. she
carries with her the golden treasures that
she was wont to dispaensc.
B~oys may not laick nffiction, bunt they
may lack teniderness. They niay not be
wanting in inc-lination to contribute their
quoto to the Paradise of Ihome, but they
may be wanting in the ability to carry out
their inclination. Thie son of a household
is like a young and vigorous sapling-the
daughter is like a fragile vine. Their nia
tures are different-their constitutions, tem
perament, t;astes, habits, are different. We
may not love Qcsar less if we love Rome
We knew a home which once rejoiced in
the sunny smiles and the musical nccents of
anm only daughter. $he was a lovely child
wvomainly beyond her years
" Full of gentleness, of calnmest hope,
- - Of sweet and quiet .ioy 9:
.The child never breathed who evinced a
mgr.e :affectionate reverence, or a moure rev
erential affectionm for her parents than did she.
*Instead of waiting for their commands she
anticipated them-instead of lingering until
they muade known their wishes, she studied
their wishes out. Morning broke not in that
household until she awoke--the night wvas
not dark until her eyes were closed, Hlow
they loved her ! her father and her mother;
and of how many blessed pictures of the
.. tuan was sa the sanbject "It is a faernt
thing that Love and Death dwell in the same
world," says Mrs. Ilemans.. "Ferful!" It
is maddening--it is a truth that is linked
Suddenly, like a thief in the night, there
cane a messenger fron Heaven tr the child
-saving that the Lord had need of her. She
meeklv bowed her head-breathed out her
little Ite-and. at mnidhight, " went forth to
meet the Bridegroom." "The last ininnte of
the last hour of the last day of the month
was hallowed by her death. She went, and
eame back no m1ore!.
Years have worn away since then, but
still there is agony in the household whose
sun went down when she departed. The
finily circle is incomplete-there is no
daughter there ! Tihe form that once was
here-reposes amid the congenial charms of
yturo and of art; they have made the place
of her rest beautiful. If the grass grows
.rank upon her grave, it is because it is kept
wet with tears.
Of truth, "A home without a girl in it is
only half blest; it is an orchard withont
blossoimIs, and a spring without song. A
house flIl of sons is like Lebanon, with its
cedars, but daughters by the tireside, atre
like roses in Sharon."-Syracnse Journal.
IS IT 80?
Somnebody-we lon't know who, and
it rnakes no difrerence-thus warns young
men to beware of th-i womien :
Young mien, keep your eye peeled when
you are after women ! Is the pre-tty dress
or forn attractive ? Or a pretty face, even I
Flounces, boy, are of no conisequenice. A
pretty face will grow old. Paint will wash

way to the .cou% I of the termagant. The
neat fotm will be pitched into enlico. An
other aid a far ditlerent being will take the
place of the lovely goddess who smiles La
sweet aid eats your candy. Keep your
eye peeled, boy, when you are after tihe

scolds at her unotler in tile hack rooin, you
may be sure that you will get particular fits
all around the house. If she apologizes for
washing the dishes, you will need a girl to
