HOE OUT YOUR ROW.
One day a lazy farmer boy
Was hoeing out the corn,
And moodily had listened long
To bear the dinner horn.
The welcome blast was heard at last,
And down he dropped his hoe;
But the good man shouted in his ear,
"My boy, hoe out yonr row."
Although a "hardone" was the row,
To use a ploughman's phrase,
And the lad, as sailors have it,
Beginning well to "haze."
"I can," he said, and manfully
He seized again his hoe
And the good man smiled to;see
The boy "hoe out his row."
The lad the text remembered long,
And proved the moral well,
That perseverance to the end
At last will nobly tell.
Take courage, man! resolve you can,
Aad strike a vigorous blow;
In life's great field of varied toil,
Always "hoe out your row."

Charley had chosen medicine as TI
the profession of his choice, and ca:
and together they had talked of in
the home-leaving; but not one a<
word of love did he breathe into
the ears that were longing to juh
hear. Once, after they had been of

on a shady bank she glanced up and H
caught his glance as of a pained go

coloring under it she had hastily
risen and they resumed their th

She had laughingly placed it in

Although her mother had so ca
strongly appealed to her pride,
and though she resolutely strove at
to banish his image, it was ap- tb
parent that her heart was receiv- re

She had been promised a visit yc
to her Uncle Harry's in the up- w
country, and her mother proposed Je
that she go immediately. This pC
proposition accorded well with of
her desires, and she entered heart- hi
ily into the needed preparations.
She longed for a change. Longed H
to leave scenes and associations be
that only served to recall pleas- hi
ures that had forever gone.
It was a clear balmy day, such tb
as we seldom see in the bleak Li
month of December, that sbe th.
found herself en route to her Un- i
cle's home. On the second day yc
after leaving home she arrived at pr
thbe little village of Allenton, and
Uncle Harry's kindly face was is
the first to greet her. y
'Well, my dear. So glad to see Al
you! The girls and Aunt Mima in
are about crazy to get a glimpse
of you. iDid you find the ride a pc
tiresome one, child ?' b
All these questions were asked th
aa he hurried her to the waiting so
carriage, and after they had got
inside she answered him, ar
S'Yes, a long ride, Uncle, but lig
not tiresome. I do so love to sit Ii'
back and gaze at the scenery,
passing like a grand panorama be- ce
fore the sight,' she said with a t
bright smile. of
S'There ! That sounds jus.t like fr<
your mother! And how strange- a
ly it makes me feel. You are ex- b
actly like she was when we used sh
to go together over this same sb
road. Ah! many is the time wesi
two have passed along here on
our way to school. And such fun p1
as we used to have!' tb
Here and there along the road
b e would point out the cottages y<
and tell her the name of the tbk
owner. One in particular, at- hi
tracted her attention from its n<
very old and gothic appearance. w
Somew bat back from the road it
lay nestled amid tall elms and be
mock orange trees. fo
'This,' said her uncle, 'is the
home of Mrs. Gardner, a childless st
wido w. Her nephe w, Jesse Gard- tl
nr, lives with her and managesb
the estate. He is a fine young 01o
fellow just home from school last eo
Spring. The old lady idolizes him e~
and at her death the property will C
all be his.'v
Ass she spoke they were necering C
Sthe avenue leading to the house t
and a young man was standingr
near the gate overlooking some
men who were busy on ajob near
Sat hand. b
rHer un"cle told her this was Mr. s
Gardner, but she had only a pass
eing glance of his face as he smiled s
and bowed to her uncle. A few
more turns and they halted be

WHAT A BOY DID.
A Duke, walking in his garden
one day,. saw a Latin copy of a
great work on Mathematics lying
on the grass, and thinking it had
been brought from his library,
called some one to carry it back.
'lt bebngs to ;me.' said the
gardener's son, stepping up.
'Yours,' cried the duke ; 'Do you
understand geometry and Latin ?'
'I know a little of them,' an
swered the lad, modestly.
The duke, h.ing a taste for the
sciences, began to talk with the
young student. and was aston
ished at the clearness and intel
ligence of bis answers.
'But how came you to know so
much ?' asked the duke.
'One of the servants taught me
to read,' answered the lad ; 'one
does not need to know anything
more than the twenty-four letters
in order to learn evergthing else
one wisbes.' But the gentleman
wanted to know more about4t.
'After I learned to read,' said
the boy, 'the masons came to
work on your house ; I noticed
the architect used a rule and com
passes, and made a great muny
calculations. What was the mean
ing and use of that ? I asked ; and
they told me of a science called
arithmetic. I bought an arith
metic and studied it through.
They then told me there was
another science called geometry.
I bought the books and learned
geometry. Then I found there.
were better books about these
sciences in Latin. I bought a
dictionary and learned Latin. I
heard there were still better ones
in French. I got a dictionary and
learned French. It seems to me
we may learn everything when
we know the twenty-four letters
of the alphabet.'
They are, in fact, the ladder- to
every science. But how many
boys are contented to-waste their
time at the first two or three
rounds, with not pluck nor perse-.
verance enough to climb higher!i
Up, up, up, if you want to know
more, and see clearer, and take a
highb post of usefulness in the world.
And if you are a poor boy and
need a little friendly encourage
ment to help you on, be sure, if
you have a will to climb, you will
finditbe way, just as the gardener's
son found it afterwards in the
iDuke of Argyll, under whose pa
rentage he pursued his studies

A CLEVER DoDGE.-The story,
if not new, is ingenious, of the
careful Bloomsbury matron, who,
having broken the cover of a but,
ter dish, went to the china shop
where it had been bought, and,
with much artfulness, asked the
proprietor if he would sell her a~
butter dish similar to her own
without its cover. 'Yes,' the
shopkeeper said, he would spare
one to oblige the lady, but he
must really charge her two shil
lings and six pence for it. 'But
the thing complete is but three7
sillhngs,' urged the customer.
'Just so,' said the china-dealer;
'but you see, the cover is abso
lutely valueless; it is the dish it
