J remember that conversation so well
with Uncle Jocelyn, some few wet ks be-
fore my marriage ; at the time it did not
strike me so forcibly as afterwards, for
my mind was too tilled with other and to
me more interesting matters.
Uncle Jocelyn was an old roan, and
the amount of his fortune had a'wavs
been wrapped in some obscurity ; but he
lived comfortably, and possessed a small
property in Berkshire, Uon which he
had built a pretty and substantial house,
where I had spent many happy days.
He had always shown a special affection
for me. no doubt owing to the fact of my
being the daughter of his only brother,
who had died when 1 was quite an infant,
leaving mc to the sole, guardianship of
my mother. Unfortunately for me, there
had never been any love lost between
the latter and Uncle Jocelyn : the cool
ness had rather increased than diminished
as years went by ; and when invitations
were sent for us to visit Conington, which
was the name of my uncle s plate, my
mother invariably refused for herself,
and only with great persuasion permitted
me to go.
ifow 1 enjoyed these visits ! How
sweet were the hay-fields and clover-
scented meadows I How cool and fresh
the marble-slabbed dairy, with its rows
of brimming basins of frothy golden
cream ! How fragrant was the old-
fashioned garden, with its Iodk grassy
walks and great big dewy roses, and the
old cedar-tree so shady, under which
Uncle Jocelyn would sit of an afternoon
smoking, listening apparen tly q ui 1 c sa tin
ned witn my childish conversati .n. llie
sun always seemed to be shining in those
days. I can recall no gloom then, and
things all wore a charm, which I did not
know lay chiefly in the fact of my own
jouth and utter ignorance of life and its
However, not to digress, I had not
seen so much of Uncle Jocelyn since I
had grown up, partly en account of my
mother's unabated dislike to him, partly
because of the existence of a new interest
in life. I had met Henry Arden. He was
six-and-twenty, five yearsmy senior. His
position in life was a fairly good one, he
having a small interest in a first-rate city
busiuess which gave him over three hun
dred a year; his character wa-t irre
proachable ; and when I say that he was
a general favorite wherever lie went, it
may be surmi-ed that in my opin:on he
was, it not quite perfect, very closely
akin to it. For myself I was passable
perhatis a little mora than tiat but I
was penniless until my mother died ; so
it was a very asiomsbiDg thing to me
how so desirable pnrti had fallen to my
lot. He was certain to get on the senior
partners had been known to say so them
selves. Consequently our start in life
C remised to be a fair one. And to be
rief, we were married. Our honeymoon
was of comparatively short duration, but
it was long enough to cost Henry, as I
afterwards learned, something like forty
pounds, which was a considerable cut
out of ihree hundred a year; for it had
not occurred to him to lay by any spare
cash for those unavoidable exiienses. I
had 'elt rather uneay at the expenditure,
but it was too early days to venture 011
any remonstrance had I been bo inclined);
we were sure to live very quietly when
we once settled down, and could easily
then make up for any little extravagance
of which at the outset we had been
guilty. We were to live in London, and
we were fully Agreed on one point ; lodg
ings were not to 1 e thought of ; we must
have a house of our own. The prospect
of posetinc ore jointly with Henry was
very pleasant to me. I pictured an
endless fund of amusement and occupa
tion too, in furnishing and adorning it;
but the mansion had still to be selected ;
so eur first business was to find one to
suit us, the next to get into it as soon as
We must have ?pent a small fortune in
cab-hire before we finally found just
what we wanted ; even then, though the
situation was good and the domicil de
sirable, the rent rather frightened us ; it
was eighty guineas a year unfurnished ;
but we should be so comfortable in it
The smallness of its size and it was ex
tremely Bmall was rather an advantage
than otherwise, as it would require so
little furniture ; ar.d two maids would
be amply nifficient for our establish
ment, which in such a place would tie a
most creditable m?nag.
We were delighted with the house, the
balcony to the drawing room being, &f
we enthusiastically agreed, almost worth
the ren', itself; and we made no resis
tance when the house agent, who must
have had eom amusement over our in
Docence and inexperience, fixed us for a
seven year's lease, representing to us
that our advantage were almost un
equalled, having Jno premium to pay.
e consented in consideration of all he
enumerated in favor of our bargain to
make any repairs that were necessary;
and in fact were in such delight with
the whole affair that the agreement, as
might have been expected, was very
easily arrived at.
We knew nothing about furnishing;
never dreamt of the dangers of green
wood or the inevitable result of cheap
investment; thinking ourselves very
acute to get hold of two furnishing lists
to compare prices ; besides which we sat
down with paper and pencil to calculate
exactly bow much we must spend ; and
I, remembering Uncle Jocelyn's advice,
ventured to say we should resolve not to
go beyond it. We came to the conclu
sion that actual necessaries might be
bought, taking the prices from the books,
for 200, with which we felt sure the
house could be really nicely done ; and
this sum he was to pay interest for until
the principal itself wa9 paid off.
Nothing could have surpassed our
prudence before we set out. When we
got into the shop we had selected as the
one to patronize we found that the
thing we had thought of were very in
ferior to our imaginings: a trifle more
here and a trifle more there could make
no great difference in the Bum total and
be everything to us in the niceness and
prettiness of our house ; besides which
our estimate of necessaries proved a very
inadequate one when innumerable etce
teras were declared absolutely indispen
sible by the attendant shopkeeper. We
made apparently endless purchases,
which we could hardly remember until
they were deposited in Amberley Villas,
where, with my newly engaged domes
tics, I awaited them with immense de
light. But vast as the importation appeared,
I had yet to learn of the legion of wants
undreamt of by us. (Scarcely a day
passed without. some new demand being
made, which apparently it was perfectly
impossible to do without. Iut at last I
was thoroughly satisfied with our ikikscs-
sions, and the servants scen'ed to have
come to the end of their requirements ,
so the only thing we had to think of was
the bill which had not yet been sent into
us. I was frightened to tb'nk about it :
but Henry was quite prepared for its
being considerably over the U00. Judge
of our dismay wheu we did receive it to
hnd it more than twice that sum 4.4-0
odd ! There were frightful entries for
'time,' which in themselves represented
a serious item, and upon which we had
never calculated ; ana our small sundries,
which we had hardly taken at all into
account, came to something quite appall
Uut the first shoi-k over, the offending
document was thrust aside it would be
paid nil in good time : and for the pres
ent we both resolved to difnuss it from
our minds. Friends were rapidly gather
ing around us ; we must receive ana pay
visits; so it was not very difficult to
banish disagreeables, and to enter with
the greatest enjoyment into the new life
which lay before us. I had fancied our
house very complete and perfect until I
saw some of the elegant drawing-rooms
belono-insr to my new acquaintances :
after that, many deficiencies were plainly
visible ; and in order to supply them we
went to dinerent shops, making various
purchases, which, as Uftial, were put
down to our account. Then came our
first entertainment with its attendant
expenses, which it was absolutely impos
sible to avoid ; lor in Henry s position it
was. as we thought, most necessary for
us to maintain a good appearance ; and,
as his wife, it was incumbent upon me
to dress as well and fashionable as I
Ho things went on ; and before we had
been married two years I need hardly
say we were nopeiessiy ana uorrioiy iu
debt. To retrench seemed utterly im
possible. J hardly knew where the ex
travagance lay ; but the fact remained,
we were living far bevond our income :
our bills were never ending and every
day we were sinking deeper and deeper
into the mire. To add to our difficulties
nursery had been established, and.
though one might imagine to small an
addition was not a serious one, it cost us
no trifling sum. I could not have en
dured to see my baby badly dressed.
How could I have seen it go out except
iu the sweetest and freshest of garments?
fck it was duly adorned in the whitest
and prettiest things, which insured a
most satisfactory amount ot patronage
for our laundress and most appalling
bills for me. However, we managed to
keep afloat in some wonderful manner;
but Henrv was beginning to have a
strangely careworn look, to which I could
not blind mype'.f. He was worried and
harassed. His business was all right;
but there were bills to be met, difficulties
to be disposed of which he could not
quite see the end of.
To outward appearance, however, we
seemed a very prosperous pain. Our house
was now as elegant as our neighbors . 1
had a thousand costly little trifles lying
about in the drawing room, got Irom
time to time, and as usual not paid for,
some of which the Btorekeepers them
selves had pressed me into purchasing.
Sometimes a sharp pang shot through
me when 1 thought over our position,
and I wished when we first set up that I
had had sufficient sense to persuade
Henry to do so more in accordance with
our mcome man we naa clone; out it
was too late now ; we mut tiust to tome

lopes that his partners meant to promote
hiui ; and if they were realized we should
be much better off. Tt is idea was buoy

only meant to etay for the day ; in the
evening he intended to return home. In
my inmost heart I was as fond of him as
ever ; but hia visit was ill-timed. I could
not rally from my disappointment for
Henry, and our cares were now assuming
too serious an aspect to be easily set
" You have a beautiful little house
Kate," he raid. " I had no notion H?nry
was such a rich man."
"Hadn't you, uncle?" I stid, trying
to laugh uncoustrainedly.
" I am truely plcaed to see you so
comfortable." continued Uncle Jocelyn
kindly. " This room must have cost
you a pretty penny, Kate ; and I daresay
you have a nest-egg somewhere as well.5'
" Oh, it isn't very much," I answered,
really referring to the room, but as he
thought to the nest-egg; and imagining
I meant that the latter, though of small
proportions, did exist, ne responded most
" Doesn't matter how smalt, Kate ;
there's plenty of time to make it larger."
It was no use undeceiving him, though
at that very moment an ominous en
velope was delivered to me with the an
nouncement that the person who brought
it was waiting for an answer, to which I
returned the usual formula, that Mr.
Arden went out, but would call in a day
or two. I tried to look as indifferent as
possible, but I felt Uncle Jocelyn's eyes
were upon me, and my face colored pain
fully, nor did my confusion escape the
kind scrutiny. I felt thoroughly con
vinced he had drawn his own conclusions.
Soon afterwards lunch was announced,
and we descended to the dining-room,
where Sophy my parlor-maid had, to my
horror, arranged some of our best china
on the table, with the best intentions I
knew, meaning to impress my visitor
with our grandeur, but little imagining
the real effect such superfluities would
have upon my uncle. He noticed it
directly, and admired it very much.
" Where did you get that figure ?" he
asked, indicating a lovely china centre
pifce. " I am not quite certain," I replied,
carelessly; "we have had it for some
" Was it very expensive?" pursued
" O no, not very ; at least I didn't
think so," I answered, recollecting with
a painful throb that it certainly had not
cost us much as yet, considering we had
not paid for it.
I need not give all the details of Uncle
Jocelyn's visit. Suffice) it t say that it
was a martyrdom that afternoon to me ;
and it was a positive relief when his kit d
old face vanished and I found myself
alone once mere. He had gone away no
doubt thinking our lines were in very
pleasant places, feeling assured not only
of our projerty but of our happiness.
I'oor deceived Uncle Jocelyn ! He little
knew that I was just longing to throw
myself into his arms and .nake a cleau
breast of all our extravagance and conse
quent troubles. How I envitd him
going back to quiet peaceful Conington J
How I wished Henry and I were just
one-half as happy as ne was !
However, our struggle then was just
beginning, for we sank deeper and deeper.
It was like a quicksand the more we
struggled the deeper we pit. We 4ared
not openly retrench we lacked the moral
courage; and our private attempts were
the merest drop in the ocoun nf that
miehty sea into which we had drifted,
simply and sorely because we had at the
outlet ignored the golden rule, so im
pressed upon me by Uncle Jocelyn, to
live within our means, and to pay ready
money. Aud what had allour extrav
agance done for us? We had a large
visiting lit, and I periodically paid a
host of visits, always hoping to hnd my
friends from home. We had a prettv
house, and were able to entertain as ele
gantly as our neighbors. I had heaps cf
fashionable dresses and useless tinerv :
and Henry was as perfect as ever in my
eyes; but we were both miserable; debt
stared us in the face whichever way we
turned ; and how long we could keep our
cieditors at bay was beginning to be a
source of considerable anxiety to us.
Henry's position in business depended
solely upon the pleasure ot the senior
partners. There were curious condi
tions in their aereemect with him ; and
if they heard of his embarrassments, no
doubt it would injure him greatly, and
miirht make them consider themselves
justified in perhaps something far more
serious than a remonstrance. mat. we
bad acted differently ! that the past could
be lived over again with eur present ex
Once or twice I thought of confiding
our woes to mv mother ; but I dared not ;
intuitively I knew that although in bis
profpenty Henry was a great favorite
with her, she would regard him very dif
ferently if misfortune came : and I felt I
could bear anything rather than hear
him blamed, especially as in my inmost
heart I knew I was equally if not actu
ally more to blame than he was ; for now
J see clearly how true 11 was wnai uncie
Jocelyn said, that a wife can make or
mar her husband. If I had quietly set
to work at the outset, and advised him
aright, all would have been well; but
now every day nrotignt some nateitu aim
or threatening letter. A ring at the bell
would cause me Xn start; and the sound
of a man a voice in the hall parleying
with Sophy was enough to make nie
tremble all over.
" The crash could not be staved off for
long ; a criss must shortly come. So ssid
Henry one lovely June evening, when
we were Bitting d'sconxolately discuss
ing all manner of rvild impossible
schemes. It was an exquisite night; the
heat of the day was over; not a breath
of wind stirred the delicate blossoms of
the plants which adorned our balcony,
and the moon was rising in all her liquid
lovcliuess, casting a cool light over the
scene. Everything looked calm and
quiet and peaceful; the pulse of the
great city were hushed ; there was noth
ing to break the silence, except poor
Henry's hopelors tones repeating, " A
crisis can't be far off, Kate. What are
we to do, I know not ! "
We fancied the amazement of our
friends the nine days' wonder our mis
fortune would cause, little dreaming
that our ending had long lieen confi
dently predicted by them, and that our
hospitality had Wen roundly cnured
and condemned by the very partakers of
it. Still less did we imagine that Mr.
Trevor, so far from being favorably im
pressed with our surroundings, had gone
away fully aware as ho was with the
exact amount of Henry's income
shocked and sorry to eee that Henry Ar
den had married a wife with so little
sense and judgment; and no cecond
glance from bis keen eyes was wanting
to prove to him hew terribly beyond it
we were living. His observations had
satirfitd him that serious embarrassment
must ensue; consequently he and his
partners had bestowed the desired ost
and increased emoluments upon one who,
if he needed it less than we did, certainly
understood its value better.
So no one but my mother and Uucle
Jocelyn would be surprised, though we
imagined so differently, as we sat on and
on in our pretty drawing-room talking
over the weary subject and pondering
what we could possibly do. We thould
have to sell off everything, to leave Am
berly Villas, and to begin life over again.
Henry's prospects, of course, would be
seriously damaged, and we could never
hope to thoroughly regain the position
eur own folly had deprived ns of. . It
was not pleasant to think of; but there
could be no shuffliDg out of the question
now ; it must be met and answered im
mediately: Whatwerewetodo? Noth
ing very definite could be arrived at ;
hut one thing was quite clear the
change could not be far off.
I can never describe the anxiety of,
11 . .1 . 1. n f Inllnnad nnr Mn OiaaiMtiiv
VC uv 1. A a to w..-.., ,
it cost me to write and tell my mother
that we were hopelessly, desperately in
volved, and that our difliculitiea were so
great it was impossible or us ever to
surmount them. What would she ray?
What would everybody say ? Worst of
all, what would Uncle Jocelyn say T For
the worst had come to the worst our
house was our own no longer; a man
strange and to rue most terrible was
comfortably making himself at home La
Our kitchen in other words, had taken
possession I How could Henry show bis
face at the office ! How could I venturo
out again !
I shall never forget the two days that
followed after I wrote and told my moth
er ; on the third, when I was almost stu
pefied with the magnitude of our mis
fortunes, and during Henry's (poor
Henry certainly had the hardest part to
bear, for he could not Btay quietly at
home) absence hRd shut myself up in my
room, some one knocked at the door, and
in answer to my very subdued " Come
iu," it was gently opened, and not Sophy,
as I had anticipated, appeared, but the
lamiliar friendly face of Undo Jocelyn.
"Mv poor child!" be exclaimed
"my little Kate ! "and he folded me in
his arms with all the tenderness of a
father. "I only heard of it all this
morning," he said, "and I started off
immediately. Cheer up, Kate; don't
grieve yeur old uncle by tears. Things
can't be pant mending; and I would n t
be here if I hadn't come to help you."
And how he helped u! Without a
word of anger or reproach he listened to
Henry's and my story; we told it faith
fully, not sparing or attemnting to jus
tify'ourselves for our culpable conduct ;
and when all was confessed ho (imply
wrote a check for the full amount of our
liabilities. The total was a serious one,
but we were saved not ouiy from the dis
grace but from Henry's dismissal from a
partnership which afterwardi was tho
means of our possessing a fortune far be
yond what we had ever in our rosient
imaginings dreamed of.
By Uncle Jocelyn's advice we sublet
Amberley Villas and retired to a more
roomy house in a less expensive and less
fashionable locality; we sold all our
superfluities, which had become actually
hateful to me, and wc started once more
with a small but certain income.
How much happier we were, and haw
grateful to Uncle Jocelyn, it would re
quire a lar more eloquent pen than mine
to describe. He oftcu came to see ub,
and never had cause to regret his gener
ous help he bad so readily extended to
us in our great need, for ho saw how
thoroughly rejcntant we were. My
mother joined in the general rejoicing
over our regained happiness ; and out of
gratitude her old prejudice agalnBt Uncle
Jocelyn faded and faded away.
She often goes to Conington now,
where wc all meet, a merry party, of
which the generous old man is the well
beloved centre. He was giving me somo
gentle hints as to the training of ray
sons the other day. " For it's a mother
influence that tells upon lie man, Kate;
it's the le-son she teaches in childhood
that he remembers best."
" Yes, Uncle Jocelyn," I answered ;
" I know you aright. I hope amongst
the mnny things 1 deeire to teach them,
one especially mayn't bo forgotten you
know what that is ? "
" To fear od," replied Uncle Jocelyn,
" That first of all," I answered; "but
I meant something el-e."
" What?" queried Uncle Jocelyn.
" Never to buy what they can't afford,
and always to pay ready-money."

the lecturer naid no subject could be of
greater intcm-t to an asHcmbly of chris
ti.in people than the history of the ways
and means by which that sacred voluum
which was so precious in their eyes had
been handed down to theni from ancient
times, and had 1 . n transmitted in their
present form for their use and comfort.

explained that the earliest records of
scripture were written on stone, and that
previous to tho existence of parchment
manuscripts they were inscribed upon
the barks of trees or upon rolls made
from the peel of the papyrus. In rrany
cases the records consisted of pictures;
for instance, in the lxtok of Esther the
ten sons of Hainan were represented a
being hung up with their father in tho
manner described in tho Old Testament,
or as in the !ok of Kings, where all tho
battles recorded thero wero exhibited in
pictorial form. A tabulated statement
was placed against every line of the text
in the old records, showing how many
times a certain letter, word, or phrase
occured ; this was summarized at the end
of every page, again at the end of every
thirty-two pages, and afterward at tho
end of every tiook, and at the end of tho
whole bible the sum total was given.
This would give some idea of the earn

Van Aruburgh could handle his lions

will fail to respond to kindnees and uni
form good treatment. And especially
will the noble bon-o respect and confide
in and faithfully ervn a master who
deals gently snd kindly with him. We
have ourselves taken a spirited Morgan
mare which had been rudely handled and
became unmanageable through harxli
treatment, rnd, by appealing to her in
telligence and respecting her needs, in
three weeks' tiinv niado her entirely sain
and reliable for wif and children, and all
would treat her kind y and handle her
gently, and wo have, after five years,
seen the same mare resume her old vi
cious habits when again under the con
trol of one who resorted to arbitary or
brutal trentmcnt. Always appeal to the
better instincts of the horse, the mule,
tho ox, the cow, fc well ns the dog and
other domestic animals, aud they will
never become vicious or unmanageable.
