THE COLUMBIA PHOENIX.
"tho Empty Oradle.
In th? lonely, quiet chamber,
There's aa empty cradle-bee*,
With jMyiat npeu tb? pillow
Of amby's shining head.
'Tis a fair and dainty cradle;
Downy soft the pillows white;
Bat within the blankets folded.
Lies no little form to-night.
Once the mother sat beside it,
When the day was growing dim, ..
And her pleasant voice was singing
Soft and low, a ?radi? hymn,
ff ow there's no saoro need of singing,
When tho "evening shadows era ap,
Por the oradla-bed ia empty
And the baby gone to sleep!
Little bead, that used to nestle
In the pillows, white and soft;
Little bauds, whose restless fingers
Folded there ii drears so oft;
Lips we pressed with fondest kies
> Kyee we praised for pnrest ray
Underneath '.? church yard daisie?
They have hid you au away.
Ahl the empty, useless cradlel
We will pot it oat of sight,
Last eur hearts should grieve too sorely
- For the little one to-night.
Wa will think.how aafe forever,
lu tne better feld above.
That young lamb for which we sorrow
FesUlh now in Jesu?' lore.
How TO BE UNHAPPY.-In the first
place, if you want to be ? miserable, be
selfish.. Think ail the time of yourealf and
of your own things. Do not care about
anybody else. Have no feeling for any
6M but yourself. Never think of enjoy?
ing the satisfaction of seeing others happy;
but rather; if ; ou eoe a smiling face, bc
jealous, lest another should enjoy what
you have not. Eavy every one who is
better off, in any respect, than yourself;
think unkindly towards them and speak ill
of them. Be constantly afraid lest some
one should encroach upon your rights; be
watchful against it, and if any .one come
near your things, snap at bim like a mad
dog. Contend earnestly for everything that
ia your own, though it may not be worth
* dime, for rights ave just as much con?
cerned asif it were a pound of gold. Never
yield a point. Be very* seuailiVe, and take
everything that ia said to you in playful?
ness, ia the serious manner. Be jealous of
your friends, lest they should not think
enough of you. And if at any time they
teem to neglect you, put the worst const ruc?
tion upon their conduct you oatt.
BABY AHD THC SUM BE AU.-A. bady ?ot
old enough te apeak or walk wac creeping
on .the floor. By-and-by a bright ray of
auii-iight fail upon the* carpet. She look?
ed at it, and crept all around it, with the
greatest curiosity in her sweet face; and
then, putting down her lips, she kissed it.
Now, was not that beautiful? The lillie
.unbeam lighted up joy ia ber baby-heart,
?rai ehe expressed that joy with a kt?.
We do uot like negative mao, bot a man
may be ? great deal toe positive.
THB SIMPLE SKCEET.-Twenty clerk*
m ?store. Twenty "bands'' in sprinting
office. Twenty apprentices in a ship-yard.
Twenty young men about a Tillage. All
want to get on in the world, and all expect
to do so. On* of the clerks will rise to be
partner, and make a fortune. One of the
compositors will own a newspaper and be-1
come an influential and prosperous citizen.
One of the apprentices will come to be a
master-builder. Que of the young villagers
will get a handsome farm and live like a
patriarch. But which is destined to be the
lucky individual ? Lucky! There is no
lnok about it. The thing is almost as
certain as the rule of three. The young
fellow who will distance his competitors is
be who masters bis business, who preserv.es
his integrity, who lives cleanly and purely,
who never gets into debt, and who gain*
friends by deserving them. There are
some ways to fortune that look shorter than
thia old, dusty highway. But the staunch
men of the community, the men who achieve
something really worth having, good for?
tune, good name, and serene old age, all ero
