pence: wnat is your name?"
"Herbert Arch ley," said the youth,
blushing at the compliment and lilting his
can in recognition of it and then, turn-
log to his play males, ne aiviaea among
them what he bad received by tossing the
corns Into the air and saying
"Oome. boys. here', for a scramble!'
Hi. oomDaniona proved themselves not
slow to accept the offer, and young Arch
ley, sharing in the scramble with high
glee, took nia scant - portion wiia tne
others.
"You are too generous by half," exclaim
ed Mr. Dwight, admiring the boy's benev
olence quite as much as his good natured
service and politeness. "You must learn

glance even than before, and again doffing
his cap "father taught me never to be

i - "The sun Is - lengthening your shadow, I
my -boy," said the rentrero&a, reflecting for I
moment. "And even ao it is witn tne i
light of experience, which increase, the I
I shade of sorrow the longer it shines. Take
my advice, my boy, and hereafter never
give all your stntre money away. , ce uo -

As they rode home, which was not far

The gentlemen who had been so interested
in him often gave him small sums like
others, though debarred like others, from
rendering his mother aasiktaiice. which an
honest pride forbade her to accede, and of
which health and industry preremed her
I from being in absolute need.
I. A year passed, and chancing to be in
the company of evil associates, Archley
got into trouble with them. 1 bey com
mitted some theft in which Archley did
not share, and or wnicn ne waa ignorant
until he waa arrested, like them, and tried
I as their accomplice. Information of the
affair being brought to Mr Dwight. he
felt convinced ot the boy', innocence, and
toiler oustioning him undertook to nlead
nl. case; wnicn innoence, newever, only
ancceeaea so iar against tne laise tesu-
ntoav or tne rrany guilty, tnat Aicniey
was tinad for trespass while the others
were more severely dealt with.
Tha shame of the accusation seemed to
overcome the bov far more than the fear
of punishment, however unjust ; And he I "His sight may be poor," thought Arch
wept more bitterly than the young repro-1 ley ; "but l will test his memory by a

could think harm of you. The best are
often injured by false evidence beyond
their power of defense Against law; and
in this case the penalty ft prescribes for

"My mother is so poor," sobbed the
boy, that I don't like her to pay so much ;
and bow can l pay it .
"What have you done with the hex ?
- "Oh. I forgot that: but I don't think
there can be much in it from the little

"Send foi it. we will see About that."
. The little box was therefore brought and
opened in court, and, much to the surprise
of the boy. far more was found in it than
was demanded to meet the penalty. This
discovery cheered young 'Archley, for he
was now reiieveu innu uis iutjniuceiiua
and dependency by being able to pay his
fine with his own money, which he did
with some pride; and. with bis mother,
his friend and his box, he marched out of
court amid the cheers of his joyful play
mates. 'You see, my young lriend, that by be
ing provident, witbout being mean, you
have been able to rescue yourself from
difficulty,", said Mr. Dwight, on parting
with them. "Bear the lesson tn mind, in
future, as well aa you have kept your

and the pleasant remembrance made him

But, unfortunately, the

Animated by the resolution he had
formed, half the load which had oppressed
him vanished. Among strangers he en
tered anew into the mazes of busines. and
though hi. melancholy memories some -
times made his struggles less energetic

I was more than offset by the great object he

I Wllen, wniie tn mgnt oi nis distress was
vanishing behind him, the old prodigal
impulse wnicn bad caused it would re
turn upon Dim ; out ne cnecaea n oy tne
memory ot the little box ; and while not
mindless of the claims of those who were
more needy than he, he learned to feel
that there was yet something nobler than
extravagant benevolence; to he just first
and then generous, and that, beside what
was due to nis creditors, mere was mucn
due to himself.
By this line of conduct he rose again to
I substantial prosperity. Experience had
I not been wasted upon him, and his second

Thus enabled, by a courageous adher.

I surer method. Old gentleman, I was born
1 in this village, and have been absent many
.1 years. I have been standing here for some
time, looking upon tne scenes which are
more interesting now than they were when
I played here, thirty year. ago.
"Thirty years ago!" exclaimed old Mr.
Dwight, staring at him. "Why, I used to
live here then."
'Did you. indeed ? Then perhaps vou
might be able to tell me what became of a
very fine gentleman who lived here at the
same time, but went away before I did.
He was out riding one day, and I saved a
kite for hi. son ; and on this very spot he
gave me some pence for it, and some very
good advice into the bargain. His name
was Louis Dwight "
"And yours is f"
"Herbert Archley."
"Why," cried the astonished old gentle
man, holding up his hands to heaven;
"merciful Providence! is this you, my
dear young friend ' Let me give yon a
good hug!" And, faltenng toward him,
ne gave mm an .embrace wnicn was re
turned with interest, and then, in brief,
tney exenanged mstories tnat oi Mr
Dwight being far more melancholy than
Arrhley's.
His son was dead, his property all gone,
and he was now a dependent upon charity,
where once he had lived in affluence.
Archley heard in silence, with tears; but
he brightened them with a smile as he
said:
"Mr. Dwight, I believe that God has
ordered that we should meet this day. and
we meet, sir, never to part until one of us
is dead. You are now poor, but I am rich.
All that I possess I owe to your early les
sons to me. I will protect and comfort
yen while life lasts, nnd repair your losses
as well as 1 can."
And here Herbert Archley proved true
to his word; and thus it was that good ad
vice, in kindness given and with reverence
obeyed, resu.ted in a rich reward to both.
The bread of wisdom had been early cast
upon the waters, and it returned "after
manv davs." in the shane ef substantial
gratitude. J

I confess there is a great advance of
opinion concensus of opinion, I think, is
the right term on this part of our sub
ject; but there is not a sufficient advance.
A man or woman sitting down, or stand
ing up if you like, to drink wine or other
stimulant, always starts on the way that
leads through four stages toward an easi-
realizable destination, stage one is
t gentle stimulation called moderate
excitement or support. Stage two is ele

of circumstance: all the .tugc t . . utly '
matured : the journey completed, with the
traveler lying down, absolutely prostrated
in mind and in body, me destination is
reached, aud found to lie a human being
dead drunk and incapable.
I repeat, whenever a person begins to
take any portion of alcohol, he starts on
that journey; starts just as distinctly with
the first drop swallowed, as he would start
with the first step he would put forward
in a walk from the pure region of Hump-
stead Heath into the outfall of that Baby
lonish sewatre which greets the smiling
Thames at "Barking Creek. The knotty
Question then is this: Ought a person to
start on that remarkable journey ot alco
holic progress at all? Should he try any
stage T Every one says, venture not on the
last three stages on any account ; but some
say, live and go happy, day by day, through
tne nrst; walk tho tint fourth ot the way
and you will be the better for it. It is a nice
exercise. It makes your heart light : it re
freshes your mind ; it quickens your secre
tions; kit assists your 'digestion. . The
wisest men of all ages have daily walked
this stage on the alcoholic high way toward
the point oi concatenation of circumstan
ces. In this first fourth of their way, with
an occasional venture a little further when
the companionship was good, they have
given the world its wit, its humor, its
poetry, its greatness.
Suppose they have lived a little shorter
time from the exercises, they have done
more work in the shorter time than they
would have done in a lon.er time under
duller circumstances ; so that the advan
tage, on the whole, is with this moderate
indulgence in alcohol. Indulgence just a
a fourth of the way on toward danger;
never further, except on rare occasions:
and then certainly not quite half-way to
tne loot 01 Mount .Elevation at ninnest,
and no further, for sake of body and mind

This, in plain language, is the argument
of the moderate school of thought. It is

The Saaioan corr&ponxlent of the San
Francisco Chronicle, writing from Apia,
gives the details of a social scandal of na
tional importance, tor the story is tbe
elopement of no less a person than ' the
Princess Toe with the duke of Malietoa.
The correspondent describes Toe, whose
name should be pronounced "Toa," as
first-grade superfine brunette, about the
tone of a baked goose, with beautiful sym
metry of form, according to the Samoan
standard. When arrayed in Samoan court
fashion, a cocoanut apron and a necklace
of birds-claws, her graceful appearance
would not fail to attract attention in the
fashionable saloons of the most refined so
ciety. Toe has passed about seventeen
summers, as the calender goes, in maiden
meditation fancy tree, when about three
years ago, inspired with the ambition ot
her sex, she tried to run away with a scion
of royalty, a son of his late Majesty, Malie
toa 1 but one or His .Majesty s high om
cers of state discoveied the plot in time to
frustrate an elopement. Toe mourned this
cruel disappointment for two long years.
About two months ago sne fell in love
with another member of the house of Mahe-
toa, the son of a high chief. Governor
Patiola, Toe's, distinguished brother, was
passionately attached to his lovely sister,
and could not be pursuadeu to consent
to her marriage under any consideration
social or state. So the courtship was con
ducted clandestinely until - the flame of
love Lad been fanned to the proper tenip-
perature, when the customary expedient of
tampered lovers tne world over, an elope
ment, was agreed upon. So the gallant
young Malietoa and the fair Toe eloped

and his tribes heard of this undutiful eon-
duct they were exceedingly wroth. He
sent a message to Toe, pretending to be
reconciled to her choice, and requesting
her to return with her lover and be mar
ried under the baronial thatch in proper
style and befitting ceremonies. The dusky
Lothario fell in this trap. Great prepara
tions were made for the occasion, and
Lord Malietoa, accompanied by the fair
Toe, set out on their return, followed by
all his relatives in an imposing proces
sion, bearing baked pigs and other edibles
in prolusion, and timing their march with
the beating or tom-toms and every mani
festation or joy. When the procession ar
rived in Man tan ta, on a Saturday, Gover
nor Patiola, who professes to be a christian
of the strictest discipline, sent word that
as it was so near Sabbath, time was not
permitted for tho p:oiier entertainment of
his dear cousins rnd the numerous retinue
accompanying them, and he prefer
red that the reception and cer
emonies be postponed until Mon
day. This arrangement was assented to,
and Malietoa and his people went into
bivouac accordingly. On Sunday the gov
ernor feigned a violent attack oi tne gout,
or some other type ot aristocraticSSamoau
malady, and sent a message for the lovely
Toe to hasten to the bedside of her ioor
brother. The unsuspecting one obeyed,
but no sooner was she inside the governor's
lines than brother Patiola developed his
usual vigor and activity. The lovely Toe
was bundled into a canoe and conveyed to
Sola Sola, in her brother's domain.' The
distracted Malietoa and his retainers re.
mained where they were bivouacked as
suaging their grief as far as might te by
gorging themselves with baked pig and
other delicacies, not knowing what dispo
sition bad been made of the missing
bnde.
One day n messenger arrived from Sola
Sola bringi. ' a letter to ratiola from his
sister. Too professed great regret at her
folly, declared that she had entirely over
come Her love lor Aiaiieioa and would
henr'.'forth be a dutiful sister. She desired
her brother to send her some other little
trinkets of the kind a Samoan belle would
naturally covet But it soon became ap
parent that this was not the special er
rand of the messenger from Sola Sola. He
had no sooner started on bis return with
the desired articles, procured by the affec
tionate but deluded brother at an expense
of $3, than Malietoa broke camp and sud
eenly disappeared. He too had received a
message of some purport from the suine
source. Patiola congratulated himself in
the belief that he had finally been released
from a vexatious annoyance. But later in
the day information was received that a
war canoe containing seventy warriors
armed to the teeth had put intt Sola Sola.
The faithful Toe had so arranged that the
guard of old women under whose surveii.
lance she had been placed should bu off
dutv and out of reach at the appointed
time. When the war canoe came inside
the reef the intrepid Toe rushed forth, and
without tarrying to cast off her simple ap
parel, she boldly plunged into the water.
and swam out to the boat and was taken
onboard. The '. 1 women witnessed the
escape too late to prevent it, but gave the
alarm and immediately the whole village
was in an uproar. .The Sola Sola people
launched their cauoes and Instituted a vig
orous pursuit in strong force. According
to the Inter-Islandic law of Samna, the
.stealing of a woman is punishable with
'death, and a bloody battle would have re
sulted had the pirates been overtaken. As
it was the Malietoa boat hml almul two
miles the start and mainta ined that dis
tance through the race until they reached
the waters of Malietoa's district, and Toe
was delivered safely into her lover's arms.
The Sola Sola boats then stood oft for Apia
harbor and soon reached there. The affair
is the grand sensation ol the day, and may
lead to governmental complications and
possibly a civil war.

Mr. Sumner was in the habit of telling.
with much humor, one amusing Incident
in Motlev's diplomatic career in Vienna.
After the close of the joint war with Pros-
sin huu Austria against jjenraars; on me
question of the Duchies, Bismarck came
to Vienna to settle the terms ot peace with
the emperor. He arrived too late to go to
the office of the minister of foreign affairs,
and remembering that his old university
chum, Motley, was the American minis-
ter, he drove directly to his house, and
found Motley just retiring from the mod-
est family dinner, with nothing but
the remains of the dessert on the table,
ine oia inenos coraiaiiy joined nanus and

collcgiates went over their student expe-,
riences and frolic's at the University of

and swallowing his last glass of wine.
Bismarck, long after midnight, left Mot
ley's house, and sauntered away whistling
to his hotel, with an immense internal sat
isfaction at the entertainment he had de
rived from his first nights experience at
Vienna. But the eyes of all Europe
were all this time on the terrible man
of blood and iron. The foreign embassies
were in uproar. Was it possible that there
was to lie an alliance between .Prussia
and the United States? It was known
that New York was, in respect to its Ger.

mysterious visit to the American Minister
the first visit the dreaded Prussian states-

St. Petersburg. The ingenuity of tliplo-
matists was taxed to account for what
was unaccountable. Sumner himself, as
chairman of the senate committe ot for

eminent persons abroad, earnestly inquir
ing whether the United States had resolv.

affairs in Europe, as recommended by the
immortal Washington, etc. absurd let

early associations with bismarctc. exhibi
ted his teeth in the most genial and hu
morous of smiles. He laughed with
Motley over the occurrence some-years
afterward when the affair was explained
to him just as he had divined it It is a
pity that this one humorous incident in
the whole -dreary correspondence of the
American department of state with its
ministers abroad is not recorded in any
