Springing lightly from the carriage, she
tripped lightly up stairs and was at Mr. Du

from it to go out. . Having received the six
hundred dollars, Alice left immediately, and
was seen soon at Smith's Bazor, chatting
gaily with a young friend whom she met
there. I'oth were leoking at the handsome
cape and muff which Mrs. Durand had fixed
upon for her daughter the day before. They
were beautiful indeed, and the young ladies
having exhausted the usual vocabulory in
praising them, turned to look at others.
Just then a hollow, suppressed cough close
by her, caused Alice to turn as a young girl
passed on her way to the sewing room.

had it in her hand, and was reprimanding
some one for coming so late.

To avoid further remonstrances, Alice re
tired to the library, and addressed a note to
Dr. Weston, the family physician. She beg
ged him to call that evening at No. 1-4 Ann
street, and prescribe for the two individuals
there. Enclosed was a hundred dollar bill,
from which she wished him to deduct his
fee, and appropriate the remainder, to the
necessaries of the family.
There was also a request for him to keep
the matter a secret. He understood and ap
preciated this, for more than once he had
been the almoner of Miss Durand's bounty,
and he would not abuse her confidence.
A few days afterwards tho tlrcss came
home. It was neatly made, and beautifully
embroidered. As Alice examined the grace
ful design and elaborate needlework, she

Yielding to the impulse of her heart, she
set out immediately for the residence of Mr.
Lester. Something told her that she would
find Jane at home; and sure enough, she
had become so much worse, that it was im
possible for her to leave the house, yet she
was trying to sew, that the family might not
starve. The doctor had found .lane and
her father exceedingly ill ; but as they were
in a comfortable bouse, barely furnished
with necessaries, it is true for not a super
fluous article was there, he feared to wound
their pride by offering more than bis profes
sional services. It is needless to say he re
turned the money sent by Alice on the first
opportunity. Alice to whom the contrast
between her own luxurious home and the
cheerless apartment she was in, suggested
real poverty while the feeble efforts of Jane
to continue to work, confirmed that some
thing more was needed. ; ' : ' ''
. ; " This, surely is disobedience to the doc
tor's orders ;" she said, gently taking the
work from the invalid. "
" Now you must not plead necessity," she
continued, " for here is a reply in advance
to that argument," and she slipped her
purse into Jane's tremblinc hand.
No word of thanks ie-il from the poor girl's
quivering lips, for the generous aid so deli
cately given ; but her glistening eyes and
silent pressure of the hand that bestowed it
told her gratitude. . . . ; -, - r

Alice was returning home from visiting
the Lester family one day, and had just
emerged from a cross street into Broadway,
when a jraily decorated sleigh passed, filled
with ladies and gentlemen of her acquain
tance. She did not observe them, but Clara
Morgan caught sight of her, and said to a
younp man by her side
" Well, if there isn't Alice Durand coming
cut of Ann-street, and on foot too! What
in the world can she be doing there 1"
"Not visiting any of her friends, I ima
gine," said Mr. Benton.
"There is no knowing; she takes very !
curious freaks sometimes. Only think of)
her purchasing a cheap set of furs, when to
my certain knowledge her mother wanted to i
have some like mine."
'She certainly could afford the most fash
ionable and expensive."
" Of course ; and that's what makes it ap
pear so, strange."
It seemed somewhat strange to George
Benton too, for he had heard the circum
stance of the purchase from histister, who
was with. Alice at the time ; but still he be
lieved that she must have a good motive for
the act Miss Durand did not act unreason
ably. So thought he, " she has been to see
some one in Ann-street, where only poor
families live that is fact number two," and
he began to make deductions, yet reserved
the final inference to be drawn from farther
premises. Fact number three was furnished
not long after. It was on thi3 wise. lie
was at a lanre party, and searching throuch !
the crowded rooms for Alice, whom he pre- j
SUmed to be there, his attention was arrested I

pel son I know of w ho does that kind of

"How provoking! That's always the
way with thej-e needle-women; they think
nothing of disappointing us. I never would
employ her aain if I were you.

Ottawa derives its name from a tribe of
Indians; bands of" whom were scattered
through the country from the Ottawa river
in Canada to the Mississippi; and where this
city now stands, a branch of this tribe had
their resiJence. The town was originally
laid out by the board of Cana! Commission
ers in 1827, but as late as the Black Hawk
war in 1832, there were but two or three
families residing here, and however strange
it may seem to some of you, it is not yet
thirty years 'since the "Council tires of the

but with the other wild denizens of the fo
rest, they have yielded to the law of neces

retired before the advance of the white man
far toward the setting sun. In 1831 the

the present one now stands. It was built of

provemeiit of the hydraulic basin was com
menced "and was completed in 1852, creating
a water power second to none in the state.
This improvement consisted mainly in the
making of a ftoi.e wall the length of the
basin and in the enlargement of the Fox
river feeder, ii.e progress oi uiua pre-
vious to the completion of the canal in 1847
was verv slow, but since that time it has I

Ludicrous KUV-cts of the Appearance ol
u Comet iu 171.
As every body is on the qui rite in regard
to the Comet, and as all sorts of dicas are
"around" in regard to it, we give the follow-
wing amusing sketch gleaned from an old
"In the year 1712 Mr. .Whiston, having
calculated the return of a comet which was
to make its appearance on Wednesday, the
lltk of October, at five minutes after five
in the morning gave notice to the public
accordingly, with a terrifying addition that
a total dissolution of the world by fire was
to take place on the Friday following. The
reputation Mr. Whiston had long maintain
ed England, both as a divine and a philoso
pher, loft little or no doubt with the popula
ce of the truth of his prediction.
"Sevral ludicrous events took place. A
number of persons in aud about London
seized all the barges and boats they could
lav their hands on in the Thames, very ra
tionallj' concluding that when the conflagra
tion tooK place there would be the most
safely on the water. A gentleman who had
neglected family prayer for better than five
years informed his wife that it was his de
dettrmination to resume that laudable prac
tice the same evening; but hi wife, having
engaged a ball at he-r house, persuaded her

the comet appeared or not. The South Sea
stock immediately fell to five per cent, and
the India to eleven ; and the captain of a
Dntch ship threw all his powder into the ri
vcr that the ship might not be endangcrtb.
"The next morning, however, the somet
appeared according ti the predictions, ant'
bclore noon the be-lief Was universal that
the Day of Judgement was at hand. About
this time three hundred aud twenty-three
clergymen were ferried over to Lambeth, it
was said, to petition that a short prayer
might be enneel and ordered, there being
none in the Church service on that occasion.
Three maids of honor burnt their collection
of novels and plays, and sent to the book

t Strong Drink.
We had tho pleasure of listening to an
excellent tcmperanee discourse-, last Sib
balh, delivered by tho Rev. Mr. C;:..'iTor,
who took up the sul jert in a Bible point of
view. Although the subject is an old oie,
yet he gave us an ortjrinal discourse, dew
loping it w ith a matter's hand. . '
The speaker dwelt mostly upon the words
"wine" and "strong drink;" nnd whit,
he showed clearly that wine, that is, tho
pure, unadulterated juied of tha grape, v.aa
as beneficial as "corn," and was highly nr;i
proved in the Scriptures; yet he rhowed
most conclusively that "strong diink" wan
exceedingly pernicious and strongly con
demned by the Bible. Three two points
were clearly established to the groat sat'n
faction of his hearers, by comments' tij:on
the Hebrew use of those? words,'w hi-h are
translated "win" and "strong drink" in
No extract, that would be allowable in our
small sheet, could do justice to the dis
course, yet we give his method cf disposing
of a single passage : lrom the fact that thej
passage we quote has troubled tho j-inliah
scholar, more perhaps, than any oilier in tho
Bible on the subject of strong drink.
The speaker said, some have supposed that
Deut. xiv: 20 furnished authority for using
intoxicating drinks, but a careful examina
tion will show that it docs not

many hearts would then be brought to the

which is carelessly thrown a-ray in seeking
for pleasure, which is never found, was used
to buy bibles and to send mrssiunai ies to
the heathen, to clothe the poor and to feed
the hungry. How many hearts would then
be too happy for words to evprc-s, in th
worship of a true and living God, who now
worship idols, images, snakes tu.d reptiles,
and are therck.ro constantly breaking tho
first commandment which says, "Thou
shalt bava no other Gods before mc." Thero
is no part of the world inhabited by human
beir.gs that is so ignorant, so loir, so debas
ed, but that they have something which
they worship, something which to them is
a God, for the reason tho human 'family
are endowed w ith a faculty called reason.
ir this were not so tney would not havo a
soul, and they would be no better than the
animals which perish. But as the' have a
soul, reason must search out soma creator
of that soul, some one which they can go tcf
with their sorrow and grief. And they are
too ignorant to know anything, worship
images and idols. But there would be no
need of thisil all would do their duty and not
be so selfish and would love their neighbor
as themselves. But this can never Le, for
then the world would be too happy, and wo
should never be ready or willing to die.
'God has so constituted us that we require
all those tiials and temptations of this world
to prepare us for a be iter. As tho parents'
have to discipline the mind of the child to
prepare it to bo useful and happy iu this
life. So does God have to discipline tho
minds of his children to prepare them for
the enjoyment of Heaven. Ii' it were not
that we- needed this discipline, why could
we not have been created perfect. Then
we should not have to live iu this world
of intermingled joy and sorrow or this world
might have becu a heaven. II. C.
