I was in love with Jemima,
and Jemima-well, Jemima was
1 not indifferent to me. I had not t
nerve to ask her, in so many 8
words, would she accept my hand
and name? I spoilt a quire of
r paper in an effort to utter my V
d thoughts in a letter ; so at last, on
her birthday, the fifteenth of May,
I ventured to present her with an
elegantly bound book, and on a
- little slip of paper inside I wrote :
DEAR JEMIMA.-By the accep

however, I screwed myself up,
and when Jemima was down
about the place playing on her
organ, and I knew he would be
making his evening toilet by put

to look in upon him. After a few
' words on ordinary topics such as
dhow were we both, how was the
t, weather, I hemmed and began:

'Let me speak for a moment to
'Get off my door-step !'.
He accompanied this last in
struction by a thrust whichi sent I
Sme staggering into the street.
My affair with Jomima was at
n end. The Captain would not

?rote to Jemima were sent back

atroduction to a firm in China. v<

wenty years I began to think it
ufficiently large to warrant my
eturn to 'the girl I left behind

ome. Father and mother were
till alive, but the Captain was F
ead. They had carried him
hrough the cornfields one sum- tl
ier's day to the little church-yard)
nd buried him there. rz
Jemima, I understood, lived in
be old house, and was single. So

ess for the dear girl I bad left ft

There was further talk in a b

corn the dirty art of gettini

You have debts, and make debts still,
If you've not lied, lie you will.
Debtors can hardly help bein,
iar, for they promise to pa;
hen they know they canno1
Lnd when they have made up
ot of false excuses they promis
Lgain, and so they lie as fast as
orsa can trot.

>f all is he who has been by God'
oodness kept out of the mire a
togthr. If yon once ask the dev
to dinner it will be hard to get him no
out of the house again ; better to sa;
have nothing to do with him.
Where a hen has laid one egg,
she is very likely to lay another ;
when a man is once in debt, he is
likely to get into it again ; better AF
keep clear of it from the first.
He who gets in for a penny will
soon be in for a pound, and when
a man is over shoes, he is very
liable to be over boots. Never
owe a farthing, and you will never
owe a guinea.
My motto is, pay as you go, and fal
'keep from small scores. Short shE
reckonings are soon cleared. 'Pay s3
what you owe, and what you're ter
worth you'll know.' Let the pai
clock tick, but no 'tick' for me. c,pi
Better go to bed without your ba,
supper than get up in debt. Sins r
and debt are always more than bul
we think them to be. cat
Little by little a man gets over glc
his head and ears. It is th. ex1
petty expenses that empty the wjj
purse. Money is round, and rolls tio
away easily. Tom Thriftless buys rc:
what he does not want because it am
is a great bargain, and so is soon lin
brought to sell what he does It
want, and finds it a very little juc
bargain. He cannot say 'No' to soi
his friend who wants him to be for
security ; he gives grand dinners, tE
makes many holidays, keeps a fat sic
table, lets his wife dress fine, never bu
looks after his servants ; and by an
and by he is quite surprised to ou
find the quarter-days come round im
so very fast, and that his credi- ap;
tore bark so loud. He has sowed bri
his money in the field of thought. Bc
lessness, and now be wonders ter
that he has to reap the harvest of we
poverty. Still he hopes for some- to<
thing to turn up to help him out TI
of difficulty, and so muddles him- bl
self into more trouble, forgetting tre
that hope and expectation are ru
fool's income. Being hard up, he or
goes to market, with empty pock- wl
ets, and buys at whatever prices sh
tradesmen like to charge him, an d sa;
so he pays them double, and gets se<
deeper and deeper into the mire. At
This leads him to scheming, an d an
trying little tricks and mean we
dodges; for it is hard for an emp- hb
ty sack to stand up-right. This bu
is sure not to answer, for schemes th
are like spiders' webs, which never pe
catch anything better than flies, be
and are soon swept away. As well mi
attempt to mend your shoes withb If
brown paper, or stop a broken y
Iwindow with a sheet of ice, as to de
try to patch up a falling business at
with maneuvering and schemin g. m;
When the schemer is found out, he tw
is like a dog in Church, whom th
everybody kicks at, and like a ed
barrel of powder, which nobody of

They say poverty is a sixth ed
sense, and it had need to be, for w
many debtors seenm to have lost w
the other five, or were born with- co
out common sense. for they appear ot
to fancy that you not only make at
debts, but pay them, by borrow- sb
ing. A man pays Peter with bc
what he has borrowed of Paul, to
and thinks he is getting out of al
his difficulties, whben he is putting w
one foot into tbe mud to pull the ci:
other out. It is hard to shave an m
egg, or to pull hairs out of a bald in
pate ; but they are both easier di
than paying debts outof an emp- fe
ty pocket. Samson was a strong p
man but he could not pay debts tb
fwithout money, and he is a fool ne
who thinks he can do it by schem- a
ing. As to borrowing money of re
loan societies, it's like a drowning pi
man catching at razors ; Jews and ca
Gentiles, when they lend money, of
generally pluck thbe geese as long as or
tey have anlyfeathers.A man must m
cut down his outgoings and save p~
his incomings if he wants to clear at
himself; you can't spend your pen- tb
,ny and pay debts with it too. p~
Stint the kitchen if the purse is of
bare. Don't believe in any way it
of wiping out debt except by pay- h(
ing hard cash. Promises make sc
d ebts,. and de bts make promises ;
but promices never pay debts; w
promising is one thing, and per- ty
forming is quite another. A good hi
man's word should be as binding St
as an oath, and he should never fe
promise to .pay unless he has a a
clear prospect of doing so in due in
.time ; those who stave off pay- jai
iment by false promises deserve ISt
mercy. It is all very well t^ d:
