iDolk't be aftald of-glvin';
If-your lifo in't nothin' to other folks,
Whly, what's the ulse o' livin',?''"
And that's what I says to wife, says 1,
There's Brown, the nuis'rable sinner,
He'd sooner a beggar would starve than gi
A cent towards buyin' a dinner.
I toll ou ou minister's prime ho is,
(ut I couldn't quito determine,
Whe I heard liim a-givin' it right and lc:
Just who was hit by his sermon,
o 'course there couldn't be n1o inistake
When he talked of long-winded prayin',
,For Peters and'Johnson they sot and scowli
At every word ho was sayin'.
J#nd the minister he went on to say,
*Iher e's various kinds o' cheatin',
4 f-)Igion'a as good for every day
At it is to bring to meetin'.
I don't think inuch of a tnan that gives
The Lord 'Amens' at my preachin',
And spends his tino the followin' week
In cheatin' and over-reachin'."
I guess that dose was bitter enough
For a man like Jones to swaller;
Uut I notleed he didn't open his niouth,
Not one, after that to holler.
Hurrah, says I, for the minister
Of course I said it quiet
Give hs sbnd more of this open talk
It'very refreshing diet.
The minister liIt 'em every time;
And when lie spoke of fashion,
tid di-riggIn' ofit In bows and things,
1 As '$oman's rulin' passion,
And a-coni' to see the styles,
I couldn't help a-winkin'
And hudgin' my wife, and says I, "That
And guess it sot her thiukin'.
Says I to myself, that serinon's pat;
But inan is a queer creation;
And I much afraid that most o' the folks
Won't take the application.
Now If lie had said a word about
. My personal mode o' sinnin',
I'd have gono to work to right myself,
And n ot set here a grinnin'.
Just then the minister says lie,
"And now I've coimo to the fellers
Who've lost this shower by usin' the
As sort o' moral umbrellas,
Go hone,"' says he, "and find your faults,
Instead of huntin' your brothers';
Go home," lie says, "and wear the coats
You've tried to fit for others."
My wife she nudged, and Brown lie winke
Anid there was lots o' smIlin',
And lots o' look in' at our pew;
It sot mny blood( a-isilln',
Says I to mnyself, our mInister
Is gittin' a little bitter;
I'ljell liim,.when meetin's out, that I
AIn't at all that kind of a critter.

once a pupil hero, and, when hor i
youth was over, soeing no other I
way to gain a livelihood, and hav
ing no parents, she applied and
secured a position which gave her .
a homc and a sum of money that I
would have been far from adequate <
Ve to clothe bor in tho plainost way, I
had sho not had the aptness aid I
skill of a Frenchwoman with her i
Hs Hor lifo was dreary indeed.
Day after day, and yetr after year, I
she had to go through the dull I
3d drudgery of her calling, in barron
rooms, teaching coarso and thank.
loss scholars, and treated almost as I
a monial by them, as well as by J
the principal; and no romanco had I
over come into her life to lend it
some light, and to transform, as ro
nmance Canl, her dull experience and 1
its scones. She nIlver had, as oth- N
ors, any one to tolkhor of' love and I
of,devotion. Ifor plainl appearance
and awkiward ways had causod her .
to be slighted, when at an ago that
to others had been joyous days ; 1
and she had soon her companions
go oif to St. Cloud or Engheim in i
merry parties with their beaus,
leaving her to wonder if' she, too, t
would never have sich admirers. (
And i hon sho was in the school, I
' sho sav hor pupils depart, Whom I
she had found to be so unilovly, to I
enjoy the bliss of' tho .oontimont I
and romance of love-mlakin ; and :
then she heard of their passing in- E
to tile golden land of botrothal and t
marriago. But sho *as still left a- I
lono, with a hoart longing for some I
one to respond to-its yearnings, i
but never knowing the sweet Cx
porience of whispered vows and
fr tender adoration.
Thus had years passed away,
andsho was still at her weary wiork I
in her cheerless abOdo, without
any light or sentiment in her coi
mon-placo and lonely life. I
d She is now, as we see her, about I
thirty-five years old, and, on a face t
that nature had not lavishly on- I
dowed,had settled an expression of'
fatiguo and of sadness, while her,
tall, thin stature, and the long limp i
curls that fell beside her palo
ohooks, gave her an air which the I
pupils described by calling -her
" the English woman," Sho was
excoodingly unintoresting, oee t
must admit, and yet a glance into I
her eyes, deop and blue, soon show
t ed that she could have mado'soio I
s- one of' the mon that overlooked E
n her for her fairer companions, hap-<
y pier than they could, and that her
LB comnpany could have made burdens<
lighter and home plensanter.

Tit truly polito porion is polite g
overywhore. Ho does not reserve w
his good brevdilg for great occa- t1
mions, or put it onl when he puts Ci
on his dress coat. At home, as well
as abroad, ho practices the rules of ti
politeness, which lie has taken care tj
to render habitual. al
Toward all the members of one's si
ovn family, one should habitually
be governed by law of civilty not o
less precise than thoso which gov- r
ern the intercourse of general so
ciety ; but modilled by a degree of r,
tenderness mingled with respect,
which can not be clainied by com
mon acquaintance. Ii
To your father you should show a
a degree of respectful deforence, to q
w!hich no other person is entitled.
His opinions should be received
with submission, and his advice
with gratitude and attention. His
foibles, if perceived, should be con
coaled more carefully than your
own. His comfort and convenience
should be studied on every o6casion
and your own should be cheorfully
,sacrificed to promoto them. Your
Mother may perhaps be treated with 0
more freedom, but with moro tender
ness. Happy is the mother to whom b
her children render the unreserved it
homage of the heart. Other rela
tions, as uncles, aunts, brothers, l
sisters, and cousins, claim attention t
and respect in proportion to the C
dignity and worth of their characters i
or the nearness of their relationship.
They should-always receive prefer. 5,
once over common acquaintanco a
in respect to visits, invitations, and
other attentions of tho same kind.
This is the law of nature ; and how
over its violation may be seemingly
passed over, the world never forgives b
a man for slighting those connected
with him by tics of consanguini
The politeness which should gov. 1
ern the conduct of married people
toward each other is one of the '
most imp)ortant elements of conju
gal felicity. Men wvho lay aside e
all the civility which they practiced
before marriage, as soon as the nup. 8
tial knot is tied, and substitute for 0
it the most unlimited freedom of a
behavior, will soon find that fanmili
arity br-eedls contempt and loads to e
dissension. A certain degr-ee of u
respect is consistent wvith, and in.
deed essential to, a well regulated
affection, and a man should prove Ii
by his attention to the laws of po- 0
liteness in the presecec of his wife h~
that lie understands the truth of 11
