*. C'.cse, Hard Man,
A hard, close man was Solomon Bay,
Nothing of value he gave away;
no noarlinil and oared;
Ho pinohed and shaved;
And the moro he had, tho more he
The hard-earned.dollars he toiled to gain
Brought him littlo but care and pain;
For little he spent,
And all he lent
He made it bring him twenty per cent.
Such was the life of Solomon Bay.
The. years wen*- by; and his hair grew
His cheeks grew thin.
And his Boul within
Grew hard.' as the dollars ho worked to
Bat ho died one day, as all men must,
For life is fleeting, and man but dust
The hoira were gay .
That laid him away,
And ithat wss the end of Solomon Bay.
They quarreled now, who hnd little cared
For Solomon Bay while his lifo was
His lands were sold,
And his hard-earned gold
All went to the lawyers, I am told.
Yet mon will cheat and pinch and save,
Nor carry'their treasures beyond the
All their gold some day
Will melt away
Liko tho selfish savings of Solomon Bay.

Thuth Will Out.?Jokey crept
up and sat down by his mothers
uide, as she Was looking out of the
window. After a few minutes of
silence, he broke out with?
'?Ma, ain't psi's pame Jacob?"
"If I was called young Jacob,
he'd be called old Jacob, wouldn't
"Yes, my dear; but what makes
you ask each a queotion as that?"
'"Nothing, only I heard some?
thing about him last 'night."
Mrs. Watts suddenly became in?
terested. "What was it, my son?"
"Oh, nothing much; something
the new Sunday school teacher
"You oughtn't to have anything
your mother don't know, Jakey,"
ooaxingly plead Mrs. Watts.
"Well, if you must go poking
into everything, Fll tell you. The
now teacher says to me, 'What's
your name, my .little man?' and
when I said Jacob, he asked mo if
I ever heard of old Jacob, and I
thought that was pa's name, so I
told him I guess I had, but I'd like
to hear what he had to say about
him. He said old Jacob used to be
a little boy once, just like me, and
had bean-shooters and stilts, and
used to play hookey and get licked,
and to tend cattle"?
"Yes, I believe he said Iiis father
rased to keep a cow," interrupted
"And he hogged his brother out
of some thing or other, and he got
struck with a young woman named
Rachel, (Mrs. Watts became still
more interested,) and was going to
marry her, but her old man fooled
him and made him marry bin other
daughter; but pa said he guessed
he was nobody's fool, and married
them both." u
"The wretch!" ejaculated , Mrs.
Whtte,iBhaking her fist at Mr. W.'s
slipper. ? /"M "

Jakey ifcitf he didn't know what
she iSarridd him'$r, .buijSfo'd, not*
catch him teUiog her Anything very
soon agairjj if she was going to
kick up such x '^W 'about it; and

When Mr. Wa$* came home, he
met Mrs. Wattd in the hall, with a
very red face, who pointed her
finger and- jerked Out the word
"vfllainl" and asked him if ho could
look his innocent wife and infant
son in the face. Mr. Watts showed
that he could by staring very hard
"Iliriow wnere1 you go, sir, when
you' efcaV away from home," conti?
nued Mrs. Watts. "I've heard the
story of your perfidy. Can't you
teil me how Rachel and that dther
w?man is to-day?" she. asked with
forced .calmness. Mr. Watts con?
fessed his inability to enlighten her
on the health of the ladies about
whom she was so solicitous. Mrs.
Watts said that she always know
that something liko this would oc?
cur, and ended with another hyste?
rical interrogation after the chil?
dren's health, but not receiving
any satisfactory answer, she threw
herself on the sofa again, and sob?
bed and askod herself a few times
why she ever left her mother; and
then she called Jakey to her, and
told him that they would have to
live alone in a little house and be
very poor, and may-be not havo
enough to eat, which made that
hopeful utter a series of most dole
ful.howls, and hasten down to the
kitchen to examine the larder.
Later in the day, Mrs. Lewis
happened in, and Mrs. Watts con?
fided to her the story of her hus?
band's villainy. Of course, Mrs.
Lewis wua very properly shocked,
and tried to impress upon Mrs.
Watts the necessity of being philo?
sophical, and left with the observa?
tion that she had never seen a man
with a mole on his noso who did
not sooner or later prove to be a
Towards evening, Jakey was sit?
ting on the steps, having recovered
from his grief of the morning,
when the Sunday school teacher
chanced to pass by, and Jakey ac?
costed him with, "Say, mister, I
told my mother what you told mo
about old Jacob last night, and the
old scratch has been to pay ever
since. Ma called pa a villain and
a bloody thief, and tried to break
her back on the sofa, and said that
there wouldn't be anything to cat,
and there ain't been such a time
since pa offered to kiss Aunt Jano
good-bye. May-bo you had better
drop in and see the old lady, mis?
ter; though she ain't so bad as she
The teacher, after some pressing,
accompanied Jakey into the house,
and was presented to MrB. Watts
in the parlor.
Mrs. Watts began to thank him
for disclosing her husband's per?
fidy, but he disclaimed having done
anything of the kind, and at length,
after considerable talking, it was
discovered that Jakey had misap
5lied the story of the patriarch
acob. Mrs. Watts started right
out to hunt up Jacob, and when
she found him, astonished him
again by being as loving as she had
been distant. Jakey is contented
in the fact that there is no immedi?
ate prospect of a lack of supplies
in the family, and Mrs. Watts would
be perfectl}' happy, if she could
only shut Mrs. Lewis' mouth.
Practical Christianity.?That I
was a practical sort of Christianity
which the Rev. Mr. Williams, an I
old-time minister at Dudley, Mass.,
is said to have taught. It is related
of him that when midway in his
sermon on a sultry Sunday, he
heard tho sound of distant thun?
der; he glanced out of the window
once or twice, stopped preaching,
and remarked: "Brethren, I ob?
serve that our Brother Crosby is
not prepared for the rain. I think
it our duty to help our Brother
Crosby get in his hay before tho
shower." Stepping down from the
pulpit, he went with several of tho
brethren to the hay-field and work?
ed there for half an hour, when
the hay was housed. Then, re?
turning to the church, he took up
the thread of his sermon where he
had left it, and preached straight
through to his "lifteenthly" and
I "finally," without an omission.
A. little girl braids tho hair of
one who Bits in front of her, instead
of studying, when, tho teacher re?
marks, "Home is the place for ar?
ranging hair?not here. What
would you think of my braiding
my hair in school?" Presently
Susan's hand is raised, and the
teacher, supposing she wished to
ask some question about the les?
sons, nods, when she hears the fol?
lowing: "Mary says your hair is
false, and you wouldn't dare to do
