How a Quaker Punished a Thief.
A Quaker, having been disturbed by
footstep3 around his dwelliiig one night,
arose from his bed and cautiously
opened the back door to reconuoitor.
Close by was an out-house, and under it
a cellar, near a window of which was a
man busily engagedin receiving the con
tents of his pork barrel from another iii
The Quaker approached, and the man
on the outsido fled. He stepped up to
the cellar witidow and received the pork
from the thief within, who, after a little
time, asked his supposed accoilplice inl a
"Shall we take it all?" The owner
of the pork said softly,
"Yes, take it all;" i)p the thief
handed up the balance through the
window and then came up himself.
Imagine his ollsternation whei, inl
stead of greeting his companion in
crime, he confronted the Quaker.
Both were aistovnished, for tie thief
proved to be a near neighior, of wloi
none would have suspected such con
duct. He pleaded for mercy, begged
111111 not to expose himl, spoke of the Ito
Ces'ities of poverty, and proimiised faith
fully not to steal again.
If thou badst asked me for meat, il
would have been given thee. I ,it -v thv
poverty and thy wveakness, ad i ht , il
thy family. Thou art forgivei."
'l thief Was greatly rej)iQnd. and
was about to depart, whn.Ii the Q(iciker
"Take the porik, neighiio."
"No, no," aid the thief, "'I do'It
want the pork. "
"'Thy nerossity was; so grvea thit it l(l
thee to steal. Onic-l11adf of the pork Iihui
must take with thliee."
The thiijef insist, d tlhat he cmld never
oat a morsel of it. The thought. ,f the
crime would mak it choke him. 110

The (Cost of a Thief.
A woman recenttly arrested is supposed
to have beeun shop-li ftin g and1( stealing in
other ways for ab~out twenty years, barr
ing two years that she spent in prison,
and her cost to the community has prob
ably boen ten times as miuch as the sum
of what she had realizedI by her various
peculations. The pickpocket is bad
enough, although his victim loses Mily
what the thief gains ; the shop-litter, or
burghar, however, to gain $10 or $20,
mnust steal propertyr worth five or ten
tinmes as much. He dc(are not sell what
he finds, so lie takes it to a " fence,"
who disposes of it att a very lowV price,
and pockets half of the proceeds. Th'le
thief who steals a lot of silverware amnd
melts it,. gets ab~out one-third as much
a8 his victim hoses, while tihe garroter
who snatches a $4300 watch gets the value
of the gold in the case-$40 or $50, per
haps. A man or woman, therefore, who
supports, a family by stealing costs tile
communmty $Itm,000 or more a year, and
if compelled to " take care " of a police
mian or twvo to avoid being molested, the
amount is greater. And yet, in spite of
the enormous expenses which t hieves
inflict on the communtity, no other evil
doers are so temierliy left alone by police
men and detectivesg.--New, York Hr'ald

Dead Leaes and Their Uses.
We very naturally admire growing1
eaves, and cannot help a feelng of sad-a
less when they wither and fall. A cas- go
al look at the fallen leaves gives us the ri
dea that their work is done, and that e,
herefore He who has wonderfully h
-reated them permitted them to decay. ti
But thoso who give more than a passing I
took find that, though their ornamental s
life is over, their useful life is but be- r
gining. You pause perhaps and for a a
moment wonder how dead leaves are
utilized ; but so many varities are used i1
that it would bo impossible to name them I
all, so we will only refer to the most N
common. Of these it is only fair to i
state that many of them are not allowed i
to wither on the tree, the reason being r
to preserve a larger amount of the es- )
senie . of the leaf. For example, the t
leaves of the toa plant are allowed to &
grow to a certain stage, and are then t
gatieroI and dried (luickly inl the suu.
Of course, every one knows that the death
of a leaf is usually caused by the drying
up of the sap, on which it depends for
nourislineiit ; so that by forcing the
leaven to d o more quickly than they
.iiturally would, more of the taste or ex
seice of tho leaf i?; retained. And so
dead I oa leaves aro of use to provide Dr.
