Too tired to do tLeir daily ta-k;

My feet have often been weary feet,
Too tired to walk anot'er day;
An! i-e thoI4t. 'to sit :and calmly wait

My eyes with tears have beon so dim
That I have said; "I cannot mark
The work f -Iz or the way I take,
For every where it is dark-so dark."
But oh, thauk God! There never has come
Tbat hour that makes the bravest quail;
No matter how weary my feet and hands,
God never has suffered my heart to fail.
So the folded hands take up their work,
And the weary feet pursue their way;
And all is clear when the good heart cries,
"Be brave!-to-morrow 's another day."
ART AND HEART.
Every Lapital is delirious with.,
merriment., Paris surpassing them
MI in reckless re.velry, and the
1students' quarter" of that gay
ity far beyond other wdrds in up
roarious festivities. Every stu
ent has a capital time, and among
bhe thousands of these m_errv
hearted young men who enjoyed
he carnival of 1847, no one quaffed
more intoxicating draughts of joy
,han Eliezar de Blivels.
Nor was tbere in. th e w h )le "Lat

He was tali and well made, with a

1areer. His parents were Creole
Louisianians, residing on a fine
>lantation, and Eliezar, well sup
plied with funds, passed his time
t Paris in dreamy ease, occup)y-1
ing his thoughts but little with
the present, and never thinking of
e future. He wrote poetry,
~oposed music, painted laud

oremost among the gay-hearted
brong was the Louisianian.

e neglected his palette and his
pen-his piano remained mute.
A dark shadow appeared to cloud
his existence, which had been
lear as a limpid lake. Eliezar
was sad and melancholy, and his
pallid figure announced mental
rather than physical suffering.
H was in ldve," says some fair
reader. Not at all, my bright
eyed friend-be had been in love.
He had loved, with all his heart
and with all bis soul, a young girl
named Julia. That is a short! sen
tence which oontains many a long
story, anid all that I will add to it
is, that Julia-of a good family,
intellectual and beautiful-still
loved Eliezar with all her heart
and with all her soul.
Why had the affections of the
young man become changed ?
Why (lid tears rest in Julia's
beautifal blue eyes? Why did the
bond between these two young
hearts seem about to break ? Alas,
it was the usual reason. Julia's
parents were not wealthy, and
had a large faimi ly. Eieizar was
introduced to a rich widow. From
that day he became morose, and
Julia soon saw that she no b>ngrer
had possession of his heart Wbat

Eliazar was fortunate, and soon

Both his parents had lost their
lives, and their property had been
swept away. He was an orphan
This calamity diverted the
thoughts of Eliezar from the
marchioness, and set him thinking
how he should henceforth live.
"To be or not to be," as has been
remarked several thousand times
each year since it was penned,
and in this case the word "starved"
was added. "No !" replied Eliezar
to his owp question. "L will gain
This is an easy resolution, but
one difficult to carry into execu

a painter and a musician. But
tbe supply of verses is ever above
the dematnd-pictures do not find
sale, unless they are flattered por
traits-and there are too many old
composers w-hose wvorks can be
pifered, for young ones to have
any chance of success. Poor
Eliezar ! There he sat, hour after
hour, his head resting on his
ands, his eyes fixed, arid the pal
lor of melancholy vailing his coun
tenance. At last, an idea struck
him. Why could he not sing i-n
As luck would have it the man
ager of the Toulouse opera house
was then in Paris, searching for a
tenor singer. Eliezar was pre
sented to him-sang a few airs
and in an hour's time signed an
engageient which guaranteed him
a handsome income. Two days
more, and he was at the scone of
his anticipated triumph, where he
immediately began, to study and
rehearse. Possessing a fine voice
and a good knowledge of music'
e made rapid progress, and was
soon announced in the papers as a
vocal prodigy who would eclipse
the famous Duprez himself. At
last thbe evening came for his debut.
The house was packed from pit to
do me, briflian t toi lettes gracing
the aristocratic boxes; while the
students crowded the pit. Many
fair hands carried bouquets, and it
was evident that the debutant
would meet with a flattering re
Up rose the curtain, and Eliezar
appeared. Loud applause greeted
him. and he advanced with easy
confidence to the front of the
stage; but not a sound escaped his
lips. In vain did the leader of
the orchestra, with violin bow up
raised, wait the first note of his
voice, that be might accompany
him. Not a sound was heard;
and the public, at first curious,
soon grew impatient. Hisses,
groans and other signs of dissat
isfaction rang through the house;
and at last the curtain fell. Man

gathered around him, and some

de Blivels the great artist, who
had squandered so much gold,
picked up the coppers and pock
eted them with thanks.
Thus be made his way to Pais,
singing in the evenings at the lit
tie hamlets where he halted, and
receiving the pitiful alms which
the public pity accords to wander
ing minstrels. Once within sight
of the capital, however, he took
courage. Paris is the city of
catastrophes and of good fortunes

be seen rolling along in an elegant
carriage, wLo that evening before

the gates of the metropolis, the
wandering vocalist took heart,
vnd he hoped he might become a
bookkeeper to an apothecary or
measurer tc a wood mcrchant.
Passing down Odeon square, he
saw a large man, dressed in black,
who was about to write upon the
wail with a morsel of chaik.
Watching the unknown, he saw
him writc--and with increasing
astonishment as each successive
letter was formed: "Eliezar de
Blivels is heartless."
Uttering a cry of rage, be rush
ed forward and seized the writer
quickly by the shoulders. The
unknown turned fiercely around,
shook off his grasp, and retreat
in.g to the wall, used his cane to
ward oftf any further attack. Thben,
with an air of derision, he pulled
out a card, and offered it with his
left hand. Eliezar accepted - it,
anid the unknown vanished.
The artist, left alone before the
inscription, endeavored to efface
it, but in vain. Tbe more he
rubbed, tbe more distinct the
white letters stood out upon the
wall, and Boon a crowd collected
around him. Some recognized him,
and began to shoot in derisive
tones: "Eliezar de Blivels is

ASAEL INN AN'S SILENT LIFE
Remarkable Career of a Man Who "Swor
Off" Talking for Seventy Years.
Zecording the death of Asaol P
Lnman, whose funeral took plac(
two miles east of Utica, N. Y., f
correspondent says: Inman was t
highly eccentric character. Seven
ty years ago he built a log cabir
on one of the hills that slope t<
the Mohawk river. He was theL
sixteen years of age,.had a wif(
and $30. Sometime during th(
first year of his wedded life In
man informed his wife that be in
tended to preserve silence for th(
remainder of his days. This con
elusion was the result of an ex
citing dialogue which Inman over
heard between his father and
near relative. Expressing a be
lief that more harm than goo<
is wrought by speech, he an
nounced his determination t<
place a permanent padlock on hi
lips. This was in 1810.
The following year his firs
child was born. When that in
teresting event was approaching
a near clhmax inma~n rode sevei
miles in the night to Fort Herki
rier in quest of a-pbysician. H
carried slate and pencil, wrote
statement of tho situation, and re
turning with the medicine man
received the announcement of hi
paternal responsibiJities in silence
The followmng year-in 1812
whben the yeomen of Central ani
Northern New York were sum
mnoned to the defense of Sackett'
Harbor, Inman reported for dut;
at a post near Adams, Jefferso1
county, riding alone nearly 10
miles through the forests to th
recruiting station. Producing hi
slate he wrote: "I come to figh
-not to talk."
Some years ago Inman had 0<

says that no woman ever had

that during the first few years c

Some of his written replies t
Lthe questions of acquaintances ct
rious to know why he preferre
silence to speech are worthy

used was "A good listener is to

In 1842, while traveling with
his wife iM a stage between Syra

was halted in front of- a smail
country 1avern. A child was
sleeping on the porch. In1man,
looking out, saw a large black
snake crawl to the side of the in

shouted :"See !" and, pointiag to
the snako, sprang from the stage.
pursued the reptile some distance,
and finally killed it.
He leaves a carefully written
record of his life during some sixty
years of his silence. Portions of
these diaries are quite interestiig,
but, as a rule he enlarges upon the
absurdity of giving utterance to
.frivolous -thoughts. Ho seems to
have regarded speech as a sacred
gift, to be indulged in only when
it promised benefit to the human
race. Here are some of his
"axioms:" "Most lives are pro
ductive of empty noise." "As one
million is to one, so is sense to
sound." "IHe who talks most
feels least." "The fool talks
while the wise man thinks." In
man leaves a snug fortune, v hich
his son inherits. His last written
message was: "Silence is golden."
His oft-penciled admonition to his
son was: "Keep your mouth
