BY L. A. MACK.
The, sun was just shedding his newly
risen beams through the rich damask
curtains that shaded the windows of a
luxuriously-furnished room, near the centre J
of which stood two young girls, apparently
nearly of an age. They were both beau
tiful; but the expressions of their finely
moulded features were different. Helen,
the younger, as she sent her gay, joyous
laugh out at intervals told the observer
lhat she apparently enjoyed much. Mary,
the eldest, seemed more to have caught a
glimpse of the true design of her being,
and to have learned more of the trulv
useful. They had not been long in this j
position before the door slowly opened, j
:.nd a tall, elderly gentleman entered. j
Grandpa! Dear grandpa! they both
gerly exclaimed, as lhey sprang toward
Lira; and, leading him to a seal, gently
put back his silvery locks, and imprinted
kiss upon his time furrowed brow.
Ah," said Mr. Ellis, "God has given
ma much of this world's goods, and many
: lesskigs tor which I should be thankful;
r.ut none do 1 prize more than the affec
tion of these my dear grandchildren," and
ij bowed his head as if in grateful ac
knowledgement. Rising soon after, he took from Ir.s
pocket a beautiful pearl, and holding it
before them, said.
Knowing that 1 should be absent some
time from you dear children, I have pur
chased this pearl, to bestow at my return
upon the one lhat is the happiest."
'How kind of you 1" lhey both replied.
?But, grandpa," said the light-hearted
Helen, do yuu'not ihtnK mat 1 may oe

Mr. Ellis raised her hand to his lips;
then gently letting it fall, replaced the
earl, and, bidding them good morning,
left the room.
Some few weeks from this lime, Dr.
M was shown into the same apart
ment, where now lay, in almost dying
agony, the mother of these girls. She had
for several weeks suffered from a fever,
which now had reached its heigth, and
appeared unwilling to quit its hold till
death should come and close the scene.
"Mother dear mother !" exclaimed
Helen, "how can I bear to see you thus ?
Sister, what shall we do?" and she
clasped her hands with agony.
Submit humbly to the will of God,''
was whispered in an under tone, as Helen
wa3 borne fainting from the room.
The clock on the marble mantle-piece
had chimed out the hour of twelve, when
Mrs. H motioned to her friends to
approach nearer. They did so; and she
requested them to call her children. Mary
and Helen then approached their dying
parent, and bedewed with tears her feebly
extended hand. Mrs. II raised her
eyes to heaven
"Mav God bless and protect my hus-
. . i i i . i -
band and our children !" she gently whis
pered -then suddenly her hand relaxed.
knd fell drooping on the snowy coverlid.
Her eyes closed their long silken lashes
drew over them she was dead.
Some two or three ycars from the date
of this event, the two sisters were sitting
alone together. Helen's hand had strayed

truant curl which had escaped from the
bondage of the comb, and was roguishly
sporting upon her fair cheek. She had just
consigned it to a safer keeping when the
heavy fall of a book, as it struck the floor,
caused her to break the silence.
Come now, Mary," said she, "let that
Utile accident induce you to lay aside
your reading for the day, and join me in
thiaking of the anticipated pleasures of
the evening; for I cannot drive the pleas

"Nay, sister, I may hot go to-night."
she answered. ."I have other pleasures
to seek after, and other scenes to take up
ray time "
j'More profitably, I suppose," inter-
rupted Helen. -Well, then, I will go
alone," and without waiting for any fur
ther remark, she abruptly left the room.
They -did not meet gam till tea-time;
soon alter which an elegant carriage drew
up to the door, and Helen, richly attired,
-w 2 5 -assisted in. Away whirled thvh-4
ele upon the stony pavement, and as the
sounds died away in the distance, Mary
cast one half.sorrowing look in the direc-

"Now," thought she, as she surveyed
the richly-furnished room in which she
sat, "God has given me many blessings
j has surrounded me not only with com
: forts, but with luxuries, lie has given
me health, and many facilities for acquiring j
knowledge. I am now young, with wealth :

the gaieties of t!ie fashionable and pleas-
ure-seeking, I might appear like them
happy, for a season, but would it not be
onlyor a scaso?i? What would there
be left upon which reflection might feed
but the fragments of wasted moments
spent in trilling amusements ? When I
look upon Nature, and view her perfection.-;
when 1 scent the fragrance of the

j with its beauty; when my ear catches the
music of the birds, mingled witli the noise

the useful. I am then led to ask Who

Shu hastily arose, and after filling a ',
basket with dainties w hich her own hands !
had prepared, and adding a supply of,
medicines and cordials, fhe threw on her
bonnet and siiawl and sallied forth. She
wdked fast. After the turn of one or two ;
corners, she soon found herself at the
door of a very small, rather old-looking,
house. Knocking gently at the door, it j
was opened by a pale though sweet-looking
little girl, apparently about seven years j
"Ma, the kind lady has come again," j
said she, as she ran towards the window,
near which sat a lady, too feeble to rise j
to welcome her guest. But the low,
grateful tones of her voice told her thank- j

frantic with joy to think that .Mary was i

window, took down a cage wherein sat
nerched a snow-white dove. She whis
pered something in an undertone to her
mother, and then approaching Mary,
while a smile of childlike simplicity
played around her features, begged her to
take it. .....

Wl-en returned, and seated in her own
apartment, she felt ; truly that her time
had not been mis-spent. -
She was awakened early ihe next morn
ing by a servant, who came to tell her
lhat Mr. Ellis had returned. With a
happy smile, as the sun darted his bright
beams through the curtained windows,
she led Helen, into the breakfast room,
where sat waiting her father and grand
father. "God bless you, my dear children!"
Mr. -Ellis, as he arose--and - extended
his hands to them.
When the first greetings were over,

Mr. Ellis' eyes followed her's and
caught the calm, quiet gaze of the elder

heard, and tiic snow-white dove rested
upon the shoulder of Mary for a moment
then, rising, nestled gently to her bosom
and folded its white wings upon her heart.
"Give the pearl to her," cried Helen,
"for she has trulv sought to make life
useful, and to do good to all; while I, ever
since vour absence, have thought only of
my own selfish gratifications."
J Mr. Ellis placed the pearl in the hand

"May it be unto you a-s an emblem of
