Ketter Late th?u Never.
- Lifo ia Uko a race whore aome succeed
While others are beginning;
Tia look in wmo, in others opeed,
That gives an early winning;
Bot if you chance to fall behind,
Ne'er slacken your endeavor: f
Just- keep this wlioloscias 'auta In minn
" Tis better lato than novor 1" .
And if you keep ahead 'tis well,
But never trip your neighbor;
'Tis noblo when yon can excel
By honest, patient labor:
Bot if you aro outstripped at last,
Pres? on as bold as ever;
Remember, though you are surpassed,
"'Xis better late than never I
No'er labor for an idle boast
Cr victory o'er another;
Bntwhilo you atrivo uppermost,
Beal fairly with a brother;
Whato'er your station, do your best,
And hold your purposo e'vor;
And if you fail to do tho rest,
" Tis better late than never 1"
Choose well the path in which you run
Enececd by noble daring,
Then, though the last, ..in n QUCO 'tis won,
lour crown is worth th- wearing.
Then never fret if left behind,
Nor slacken your endeavor;
But over keep this truth in mind
"'Tte hotter lato than nover!"
THE LOST RING.
BY A BETTBED ATTOBNEY.
It was an elderly woman, upon
whose brow care had furrowed many
* wrinkle. She was dressed in home?
ly garments, and the straggle between
pennry and neatness whioh they
evinced would have been an interest?
ing stndy for a philosopher. Her
eyes were red, as thongh she had
been weeping; and when she seated
herself by my desk, the pont up our?
lent of grief bnrst afresh.
"What is the matter, my good wo?
man? Yon seem to be in deep dis?
tress," I remarked, in the most en?
couraging tone I could command.
"I ?rn, sir. They say the Lord ia
near to them that arc suffering, and
I am sure he ought to be near me."
"I tiaro say ho ie, ma'am. But yon
know that afflictions are sent to us
for our good, and we ought never re?
pine at the discipline of life, how?
ever severe it may sometimes soom to
I had heard an excellent sermon
the day before, for it was Monday,
on tribulation, and I was just in tho
frame of mind for giving others moro
excellent advice, which, perhaps, I
should have been very unwilling to
follow, if the dark waves of trouble
had rolled over me.
"I try to bear it as well as I eau,"
she replied, wiping away her tears
with tbe corner of her apron.
"I don't know as I am acquainted
with yon, ma'am," I suggested, for
the purpose of changing the topic
and bringing her to business.
"I don't know as yon are," she re?
plied; and she proceeded to give me
a very long and very succinct account
of her prerions history, beginning
back some forty years, wheu she was
born among the White Mountains in
I tried to check her, but it was no
nae. I was as patient as the case
would admit, and mindful of the duty
we owe to the weak, the infirm and
the ignorant; but my patience was
sorely tried. I will not punish the
reader with the long, fine-spun story
she told me, for a few lines will
suffice to inform him of the material
She was a widow, her name was
Marche. She had an only son,
Philip, who was employed in an in?
surance office, and received three dol?
lars a week for his services. He was
a good boy and loved his mother, as
he should. Upon their united earn?
ings thoy lived very comfortably in
an obscure street, where they hired
two rooms. MM. Marcile's catalogue
of her son's virtues was certainly
very edifying. He never spent a cent
upon himself, nover went out nights,
nne. attended church forenoon and
An evil day had come. On the
Saturday three weeks preceding,
Mr. Carman, the President of the in?
surance company, as he declared, had
sent Philip with a valuable diamond
ring to the jeweler's, to have the stone
reset. On inquiry the ring was found
not to Lave reached its destination.
The jeweler had never seen it. To
make the case moro complicated, the
boy denied having received the ring.
Mr. Carman had never sent him on
any such errand.
The boy had boen arrested on
charge o? stealing the ring, and was
now confined in jail. Mr. Carman
was ready to swear he delivered the
valuable artiolo into the hands of the
boy, with explicit directions as to
where he should carry it and what
should be done with it.
It looked like a bad case. The
poor woman was in the saddest dis?
tress. Sho waa sure that her darling
boy would not steal. I pitied her
and promised to do what I could for
When ?he had gone, I called upon
Mr. Carman. I found that he was
ono of those dogmatic old fellows,
who are never in a wrong, who find
it impossible to err, even by design,
or to moko a mistake. I tried to
argue the point with him, but he
wonld not Bay much. Ho told me tho
story; was miro he sent the boy and
I ventured to snggost that he
might havo been mistaken; that ho
had sent the ring by some other per
: "Ho you take mo for a simpleton,
sir? Do you think I don't .know
what I am about?" he exclaimed, be?
stowing Upon mo a look of withering
contempt. "I Bent the ring with the
boy, sir. Tho boy has stolen it.
Nothing more need be said/ sir."
And he turned to the newspaper he
had been reading.
1 I was not mnoh pleased with the
interview. I was highly vexed at the
haughty boariug of the fellow; and I
confess that my pique rendered mo
ten-fold moro zealous in my endea?
vors to clear roy youthful client
I visited Philip at the jail. He was
very sad on his mother's account; on
his own he seemed not to tare. A
moro frank, open-hearted boy I never
saw. He told his story; though I
questioned him him pretty severely,
ho was consistent to the last.
I made the case my own, and work?
ed unceasingly, as it seemed to me
then, for tho overthrow of thc haughty
President of the insurance compa?
ny, as much as for the salvation of
tho widow and her interesting son. I
visited more than a dozen jewelry
shops- that afternoon and the next
morning; with what result the reader
shall learn in the details of the trinl,
which came on the next day.
Philip was duly arraigned, and his
poor mother sat by his side, weeping
and sobbing like a child as tho caoo
Mr. Carman, with majestic dignity,
stepped upon the stand. He told the
story I have before detailed, and wao
turned over to me for cross-examina?
tion. I could see that he was nettled,
for he certainly could seo no mercy
in my face.
"Mr. Carman, are yon willing to
swear that you gave tho ring to this
i. "Certainly I am," he replied, vexed
and angry, for he had answered the
same question a dozen times in the
course of the cross-examination.
'.'I beg your honor to notice par?
ticularly the words of this witness,"
I remarked to tho Court.
His Honor testified readily that he
had noticed thom, as a matter of
course; ho had them in his minutes;
and ho rather snubbed me for press?
ing so respectable a witness in so se?
vere a manner.
"Now, Mr. Carman, may I beg you
to examine this ring?" and I banded
him the one he bad lost.
"It is mine," he replied, with ovi
"You-identify the ring, do von,
"That is all, sir. May it please
your Honor, I shall bring but ono
witness for the defence. Will Mr.
Graham take the stand?"
Mr. Qrabam took the stand. I
showed him tho ring.
"Have you over seen this ring bo
"State to the Court what you know
Mr. Qrabam proceeded to state that
he was a jeweler; that the ring was
left at his shop three weeks before,
by an elderly gentleman, to have the
"Is the gentleman in the court
room?" I asked.
"He is; there ho sits;" and he point?
ed to Mr. Carman.
The Court was astonished; the of?
ficers wore astonished; and Mr. Car?
man was overwhelmed with confusion.
He acknowledged his error when there
was no possibility of concealing it.
He asked to correct his testimny, and
Mr. Carman was a very absent?
minded man; and the .solution of the
whole matter is, that he forgot all the
cir3urnstuuees conuected with the
ring. He intended to have sent
Philip to tho jeweler's with it, and
actually called him for that purpose,
but his attention was attracted to
something else, and he thought no
more about it. On his way home to
dinner, whilo his mind was absorbed
by an important business operation,
ho had left the ring at Mr. Graham's.
The impression that he had given
tho ring to Philip was fastened upon
his mind. He remembered the fact
of calling him, and his intention be?
came a reality.
When thus cornered he amused tho
judges with severa, other instances of
absent-mindedness of which he had
been guilty, in this manner explain?
ing the mistake he had made.
I must do him the justice to say
that he made Phillip ampio amends
in the shape of r* hundred doiior bill
for the trouble he bad caused him;
but I believe that Mr. Carman hated
me to tho day of his death. I can
only say I should not have puuished
him so sovorely if he had treated me
like a gentleman.
