THE POETS' CORNER.
WE' PVE ALL OUR ANGEL SIDE.
Despaynoiof the better part
That lies in human kind
A gleam of light still flickereth,
In e'en the darkest mind;
The savage withhis club of war,
The sage somild and good,
Are link'd in firm, eternal bonds
Of common, brotherhood.
Despair not ! Oh ! despair not then,
:. For though this world is wide,
No nature is so demon-like,
But there's an angel side.
The huge rough stones from out the mine,
Unsightly and unfair, ,
Havereins of purest metal hid
Beneath the surface there;
Few asck so bare but to their hearts
Some tiny moss plant clings,
And round the peaks, so desolate,
The tea-d sits and sings.
Believe , that rugged souls,
Beneath eir rudeness hide,
Much that is lpautiful and good
We've all our angel side.
In all there is an inner depth
A far o11 secret way,
Where, through dim windows of the soul,
God sends his smiling ray;
In every human heart there is
A faithful sounding chord,
That may be struck unknown to us,
'By some sweet loving word;
TPhe wayward heart in vain may try
Its soafer thoughts to hide,
;Sbe unexpected tone reveals
It has its angel side.
eband low, trodden down,
Dark with the shades of sin ;
Deciphering not those holydights,
Which God bath lit within;
Groping abouin utmost night,
Poor prison'd souls there are,
Who guess not what life's meaning is,
Nor dream.of Heaven afar;
Oh ! that some gentle hand of love
Their stumbling steps would guide,
And show them that, amidst it all,
Life has its angel side.
Ilruthl'and mean, and dark enough,
God knows some natures are,
But he, cempfssionate, comes near
And shall we standafar?
Our erane of oil will not grow less,
If shared with hearty hand,
And words of peace and looks of love
Few natures can withstand.
Love is the mighty conqueror
Love is the beauteous guide
Love with her beaming eye can see
We've all our angel side.

Slashbag shook hib head knowingly,
:like a menacing bill, and the other
parties winked, as much as to say,
" That's a fact."
" The eyes being very small, leave
more room for these bumps of love, just
over them, which make the eye-brows
so shargy and big. This signifies that
if he loves anything. he is determined
to have it, and the small eyes mean, he
will go it blind till he gets it."
(This clear explanation'was received
with an admiring murmur from all.)
"This smashing great big bump I

"What does it mean ?" asked se
"The bump of locality means that

brawny arms, and slapped his chest, as
"But then there's Josh Boldwig,"
suggested some one, " he's powerful
strong, and the top-of his head is as flat
as a patn-cake !"
" O, that's nothing," said the deacon,
a little puzzled for a moment. " Some
times-not often-but sometimes, the
bumps grow innards, and can't be
seen. But they are there. But, as I
say, such cases are exceptions."
"It's a curious science any way,"
saidt Boldwig, feeling his head.
~ You can bet a pile on that, and
win," said Tosspot, admiringly.
"But how would the thing work."
d Smipps, who had recovered his
es, " if a feller had bad bumps,
`wanted the good ones to press down
the bad bhmps, by a machine ?"
"O, that wouldn't do at all," replied
the deacon, decisively. " Don't you
see that if you pressed 'em down,
they'd grow innards, as I told you ?"
"Of course !" said everybody else;
and Stiipps felt very sheepish again.

Marrying a Fortune.
Full half of mankind will never get
through searching up money-matches
for themselves, until the other half has
done with holding the money. That is
a fixed fact, which no one will attempt
to call in question.
Tom Turnabout was one of the pen
I niless ones. Not that it was, by any
f means, the fault of his own, but it
merely happened to be so : it was " in
- his stars" to be poor. And what made
the matter worse, besides being poor,
per se, he was a poor barrister-a situa
tion rendered by all odds exquisitely
,distressing; for a briefless barrister is
always short of everything, from soap
Tom was, withal, an individual of
more than ordinary personal attractions
-so far as the opinion of the majority
of the other sex went-and upon this
opinion he early determined to found
pretty much all his future. With his
affable and excessively social manners.
it would have been no wonder at all if
he did not have to undergo many a
pang in the measurement of his living
by his circumstances.
At last. by one of those most fortu
nate of the dice of chance of which
we read or hear but rarely, Tom Turn
about was married, and to a lady of for
tune. It seemed to him as if the for
tune was accumulated for his use and
behoof al6ne. And on his wedding
day no man was anywhere to be found,
who could make show of a larger share
of enjoyment in prospect.

time-as well, perhaps, as ought to have
been expected: for the " briefless bar
rister" was now possessed of a com
fortable home, and assured of an ex
cellent living, together with a young
and pretty wife; for Mrs. Euphrasia
Turnabout, as every lady said. was a
very pretty young woman. Her hair
coiled, her eyes were of a jet black,
her hand was delicate and of a lilly
white, and she knew how to dispense
the most gracious and bewitching
smiles: how could she be otherwise
than pretty? And if pretty, likewise
amiable? At least, so thought for a
time Tom Turnabout, Esq. A.who es.
teemed himself her liege lord and mas
But there was one thing that seri
ly troubled Tom, and that was, how
to'4broach the subject of coming into
due possession and management of his
wife's property. For this he had mar
ried. Could it be that he was no bet
ter off now. The thought alone made
He went round and round the subject
in his mind for a long time, at each re
volution becoming the more perplexed.
At no single time dared he to nerve
courage up to the effort necessary to be
made in order to have the matter com
pletely understood between them.
Euphrasia had the household as if she
had fully resolved to count at least one
in its management and classification.
Tom had repeatedly hinted to her about
deposites, bank stocks, taxes, and all
the other minute appurtenances to the
possession of a fortune, but hitherto to
no purpose at all; she made neither
revelation nor explanation-least of all
did she betray her native acuteness by
taking a hint.
Such a state of affairs was worrying
Tom into a fit of desperation, if not into
his'grae, and he finally made np his
mind to come to an understanding, in
some way or other, just as soon as prac
So long as it was necessary to keep
tlMdembers of hope alive, he had sedu
Tlaly avoided all t4 former acquain
tance, lest he mighl s suddenly give
a shook to the delicate nerves of his
wife, and to lose hisehances altogether.
But as soon as he found that disguise
helped him not a whit, he screwed up
his courage to venturing a bold push
that should settle all. Accordingly he
laid himself out to bring matters to a
head at once.
"Dick," said he to a companion of his,
one afternoon, as they sat together in
the little office of the latter-" Dick,
P1Im in a quandary!"
" A quandary !"
- "About what ?"
"I want some money,"

" Wha' would I do ?"
" Yes-what shall I do?"
"Nothlg is easier." replied Dick.
' I hops not," said Tom, " but how

" Have you broached the subject to
your bettr half?"
" Haven't (dared to; she won't let me,
in fact !"
"': Then run up a bill or two."
" Then what ?" asked Torn earnestly.
" Have it sent at such a time to the
house, anl be sure not to be at home."
"I never thought of that."
" Shell either pay it or blow," con

"You couldn't have hit the nail more
exactly on the head; let's go at once!"
That was a " fast" afternoon-the re
mainder of it-and it began a new era.
To be sure it was a step taken in the
dark, but Tom hoped that it would lead
to happy results and plenty of money.
In due time, the bills began to come
One morning the door-bell rang, it
clanced to be about nine o'clock. The
servant answered the summons, and
carried a bill up stairs to her mistress.
The bell rang again, and there came a
second bill. A third time, and another
bill. Mrs. Euphrasia Turnabout began
to grow alarmed.
Presently came along the dinner hour.
It duly found Tom Turnabout, Esq., at
home and at the table.
All during the meal he anxiously
scanned the features of his wife, trying
his very best to imagine her as feeling
extremely happy in enjoying the privi
lege of payvig her dear husband's
bills; but he succeeded in reading no
such expression on her face: he looked
for the slightest trace of it in vain.
It was too perplexing. There sat
Euphrasia, worth her fortune, over
against him at table-a mountain of
gold, as it were, within his reach, but
he not able to pick off even a shiny
scale from its surface. She was as calm

he. on the other hano, was ouruing
with disappointment and chagrin.
He declared within hidelf that he
could stand it no longer. It was a few
steps beyond human endurance. Better
die at once than live long in this sus
So at last he meekly remarked to his
"Euphrasia. was there anything
brought here this morning for me?"
" Yes, dear." she replied, " there
were three bills for horse-hire, and con
fectionery, refreshments and one thing
and another; but I did not read them
pparticularly-you know that's not a
"Was there a bill for furniture too?"
inquired the agitated Tom.
"Yes, dear; I paid that and took a
receipt; but the others, your personal
matters, you know, those I carefully
placed in your escritoire, where you
could readily find them when you
wished to. I hope you do not consider
me too inquisitive in just looking at
them to see what they were !"
Tom was not possessed of any too
much philosophy, and this last serious
sally of his wife quite upset what little
he had.' Swallowing his dinner as fast
as he could with safety do it, he pushed
as fast as he could for his office. Ere long
his old friend, Dick, made his appear
" Well !" said Dick, " how goes it ?"
"It's no go," surlily answered Tom.
`:How not ! Were the bills paid ?"
Tom explained the whole.
His friend admitted that it would be
exceedingly hard to getsound a wo
man who understood herself so well as
did his wife, more particularly when
she held the purse strings.
Tom gave it up altogether. That
afternoon was spent in reflecting upon
the extreme worthlessness of his de
pendence for an independent living on
another, and in forming a strong reso
lution to go ahead and to do something
The lesson he learned chanced to be
a most valuable one, which many a
married wife may at her leisure give
her husband, to his decided advantage.
Tom Turnabout, Esq., afterwards
turned out a very respectable member
of his profession-enough so, at any
rate, tobe able to earn sufficient to pay
his carriage and oyster-housb scores.
At home he never knew what trouble
