" surely tlie Yys of Provideu'ce
are inscrutabre.
" Which of our faults lias

' " Very likely," I said ; " sach

" My dear," said Aunt Mary,
looking shocked beyond meas
ure, "I 'wish you would not
talk so Irreverently....,, I thought
you hatl'liad a change of heart,
and 1 ; don't like to hear you
speak so ' lightly : of ' serious
thmgs;' ; f ' ! ' .:'
' Dear aunty," I said closing
my book and laying it upon the
table, l I did not mean to be
irreverent, but I do feel very
strongly impressed with tho
fact that a mother who does
nolhing , for , Jier child except
pray, and a lather whoso light
is principally seen to shine iu
church iieed not be surprised
to have their sous taken up for
forgery or anything else. , Mrs,
Brown and her husband may be
excellent people for might I
know, t6 the contrary, but have
they been , to their children all
that God intended them to be?
Are you suro that it js altogether
the children's fault ' that they
have gone wrong ?" '..
" Train up a child in the way
he should go, and when ho is
old ho will not depart from it,"
said Aunt Mary. :
" That very quotation shows
that there is a mistake some
where In the trainlug," I', an
swered ; " for we hsvo the words
of tho Holy Bible itself, that if
a chilli is trained up in the way
he should go, ho will not do
part from it. when he is old. As
so many boys, and girls too, do
depart from it, stands to reason
that the traiuingis wrong some
how r rr .. '! '"v
I " What would 7011 have ?"
asked Aunt Mary.
"I would ' have sympathy,
morning, noon and night," I
answered, " Who can' under
stand the loneliness of ti little
child's heart ? Ho feels that he
is hero to yield perfect obe
dience whether he understands
the reason or not, or elso to get
punished, Of ' course that is
right to " a certain extent, but
how often wo might lighten the
burdens which are very heavy

"Mamma, feeing ( that
Bridget is occupied jnst theri,
replies, f 0 j Johnny, that plate
will do just as well; pass it to
me and I will give you some
cakes.' . -; ' ' '
" But, ' niamina,' pleads ' the
little fellow, ' my plate is all
covered with gravy, and I do I
not like gravy and, syrup to

says, my mi, Ym can haye
your cakes on that plate or' you
can go without them."
" Poor Johnny has only lived
seven years in this world, but
ho cxpepted to haye the self
control q sixty. The tears
come to tho poor little eyes, up
on which papa adds :
"John, if von can't keD
' -
frpj)i crying you can leave the
tablo;''' '!' '
The little man chokes and
looks longingly at the cakes.
Shall he take them, gravy and
all, or go without them.
By this time Bridget brings
a dishful of smoking hot ones
with take notice of this
nice dean plates, knives and
forks for the grown people.
. This naturally infuriates mas
ter Johnny, who says:
."1 don't 6ee why I need eat
out of a dirty plate any more
than you, nnd I think it is real
n-ean."
Alas for poor Johnny ! the
next thing ho knows hi3 chair
is pulled back and he is set up
on his feet and ordered out of
the room for being impudent,
with (he cheerful reminder that
if things go on in this way ho
will suiely get punished before
the day is out ; he knows well
0 n 0 u g h wh a t ' punishment'
means.
Poor Johnny is sulky and
cross, and why not ? He can
see no reason for things being
as they are, ; and there is no
reason, excepting , that the pa
rents were inconf iderate at first
and afraid of not carrying their
point afterwards.
At dinner Johnny expresses
his desire for some more potato.
Grandpa, who sits by his side
says, " I (lo not want mine, tho
child can tako that.",
" No," says Johnny, pulling
back his plate in horror, "I
don't like it off your plate ; 'j
want it from the dish." ,
Again the fear arises of en
couraging whims and notions,
and Johnny is forced to take
grandpapa's leavings, with some
butter froi,n mamma's plate,, be
cause it's a pity to have it
wasted. 1
Poor Johnny feels a little
sick at tle thought, but rwhat
of that ? j He is hungry, how
ever,' so he takes these dainties,
trying all the time to forget
whenco they came, No one
sees tho strugglo in that little
heart, and the trilling scene is
soon forgotten by all but : the
sufferer, upon whom it leaves
an impression of his being the
victim o Nbruto . force, What
would , have been his father's
sensations upon being obliged
to make a part of his meal ' out
of his parent's leavings ? But
Johnny i? supposed to have no
feelings, being only a child. ,
" They don't care whether I
am happy or not," says poor
Johnny.' 'I wish I were a big
nian andjcoukl do as I like."

Jobyuy ooines from a party
where he has had a glorious
time. Such funny things have
happened, To be sure the
probabilities are that we should
not appreciate the full extent
of the, drollery, but the little
people llaye laughed themselves
into siddaches.:. He comes run

it, tor hi i joy is not complete
till he his shared it with some
one. I
" OhJ mamma," lie cries, " it
was soj jolly ! Tommy B- -did
this, and Jimmy S did
that, and we nearly all died of
laughter. : ;

"Johuny comes home from
school in disgrace. His heart
is very heavy, and he longs to
have some strong, loving hand
help hini to lift off tho burden ;
so climbing into mamma's lap
he begins his sorrowful tale
He has douo wrong, to be sure,
but teachers are human, and his
has been cross and impatient,
and, therefore, quite as much to
blame as the little culprit.
Mamma thinks it would under
mine all tho foundations of dis
cipline should sho hint that the
teacher was; in fault, so she
says, "You have be'en a very
naughty boy, and I can't love
you when you are so bad. For
a week you can't have any sug
ar on your berries."
: And yet these parents lovo
their little child dearly. Whcu
he was sick they walked with
him night after night for weeks
and never oven thought it hard.
Many and many a piece ol
self-denial have they exercised
for his sake. Mamma went
without a mufl all winter that
the desiro of his heart might
bo gratified on Christmas, of
being tho owner of a big rock
ing horse. Papa gave up a
much-longed-for book that an
addition might bii made to his
little stock iu the savings-bank.
And yet; in 1 spite of it , all,
Johnny goes about feeling that
there is a great gulf between
himself a'nd. liU'parents because
ho is liitlo and they are. big.
So ho gradually confides less
and less in them and moro and

Childrens' Story.
Judge and Jury.
Two dogs were one day trav
eling together in search of ad
venture. They proceeded for
some distance in silence which
was at length suddenly broken
by an exclamation from the
smaller dog:; . , .. ,
"Bow, wow; a hare 1 a hare 1"
and the next moment both dogs
were in hot pursuit. Now the
small dog had the best of the
start, yet the large one, having
much longer legs soon outran
the other, and at last caught
the hare. He '.was beginning
to devour his prize when . up
came tho small dog, and cried
"Stop 1 stop ! that hare belongs
tome!" ; ' . , ; ' , :
"How do you make that out?"
angrily demanded tho other, "I
caught it."' '
"That may be," retorted the
small dog, with a snarl, "but I
saw it first, and pointed it out
to you; and I'm quite sure you
would never have seen it but
lor me."
"Now stand back" cried the
largo dog, showing his teeth in
a very unpleasant manner, as
the other endeavored to' snatch
the haro from him, "I don't

want to injure you, so in order
to settlo tho quarrel, wo will
bring the matter beforo the king
and his court." ' ' 1 '
: Tho king was soon found,
and a jury being summoned,
tho dogs were immediately sur
rounded by a motley assembly
of animals.
Tho Owl, as usual .(accord
ing to tho most auciont rec
ords) was tho judgo; and the
jury was composed of a tiger, a
horse, an ox, an ass,1 a boar ,a
sheep, a' pig, "n- wolt, a monkey,
a cat, a fox' aud a crow, Tho
dogs woro then brought forward
and tho largo dog said : ;, "Ve
were walking along together,
when my companion espied a
hare. We'both' rah after it, but
I .alone caught.it ; and,, there
fore, Tel aim it as mine."
"Very well," said the judgo,
"stand down, and, let us hear
the ' 'other" side 'of the ques
tion." " - ;

"May it please' your ; worships,

"lnis rseems to be a very
complicated matter," remarked
the Owl,
"It is indeed my Lord," re
plied the f Pig: j'and Will - of)
course require careful consider
ation; "and having uttered
these remarkable words, he cast
himself , full-length upon the
ground, evidently with the in
tention of carrying out his own
suggestion,
"It seems to me," said the
Wolf, "that it is a most dis
graceful proceeding from be
ginning to end. I'm thankful
I don't keep company with such
low people, although they are
distant relations of mine." ; ;
"Gentlemen," said the Mon
key, who had a great idea of
his own wisdom and eloquence,
"allow me to make a few re
marks. It is surely very un
becoming for great and learned
men to quarrel with one anoth
er. Let us then lay aside all
personal feelings and endeavor
to arrive at a just decision. At
the same time, I must confess
that I have no great iriendship
for the canine race; not that I
would allow my feelings to in
flueuce my iudgment. . I trust
- - - ' i
I am too honorable : for , that,
Still I would suggest that both
dogs be punished for a breach
of the peace."
"I feel it my duty to remind
you, gentlemen," said the Owl,
"that some of you are rather
apt to encroach on my peculiar
and important office. Pray
remember you are only , jury
men." , "
This severe and public re
buke caused a dead silence in
court for some minutes. t
, At length the Tiger 8poke :
"What are we staying here ; for
all this timo looking like a lot
of old women? It is evident
that both dogs are guilty, so let
them fight each other until they
can , light no longer. , That
would cure them of quarreling
for the ftiture." And having
expressed these humane senti
ments he gave a contemptuous
growl at-tho slowness of his fel
low-jurymen
"Perhaps, Sir Tiger," said the
Owl, "you would like to take
my place?" ;
Heavens 1' gasped the jury
men, and even tho Lion King
made a nolso like distant thun
der, at the very idea of such a
catastrope.
As there wero no witnesses
ou cither side,; and as tho jury
seemed unable (o come io any
docision, the Crow (who always
acted as foreman) proposed that
they should retire '. for awhile ;
and this was accordingly . done,
"Let us reviow the facts of
the caso as , they stand," ' said
the Crow, folding his wings with
foreman-like' composure.
"For my part," romarked the
Cat, "I never could see what
uso dogs aro in tho world." i 1
. "Possibly that might bo ap
plied to yourself," returned the
Crow, severely.' . .: . : 1 1 ,
"Whatever we do;" urgod the
Sheep, "let us under all circunv
stances endeavor to adopt a
mild course.'" My- motto is',
'Mercy is better than justice.' "

cried the' Wolf; "but that's a
fool's niotto.'( t 'say' jusUcoj ia

bettor than mercy." ,
Would, that you always act
ed up even to that," responded
mo uiieejj junuiy.
"You . wretched . creature 1"
said the angry Wolf, : ,"you are
only fit to be turned into mut-'
ton ; bah !" ' ! ' '
' "I should reccommend' you
to stop these remarks," said the
Horso, stamping "his foot with
indignation, ,
"Mind your, own business,"
retorted' the ' Wolf, "you are
worse than the sheep ; you are
only fit ' for 'cat's' meat ;' and
sometimes " added he beneath
his breath, for wolfs meat 1"
"Come, come, gentlemen,"
chimed ' in the Monkey, who
was' inwardlychi'?th'e'66fi
versation, "pray try and be a
little more sedate."
The Tiger turned) savagely
round on the last speaker, ex
claiming; "What right have you
to interfere, you impudent cox
comb?" : lu'Ai "
But while all this and much
more was being said and
highly improper it was for re
spectable and enlightened ju
rymen the Ass was growing
tired and presently gave such a
tremendous yawn, that he .sud
denly woke the Pig, Who wear
ied with his official exertions,
had fallen into a sound sleep.
Thereupon the animal : sleepily
asked, "Did you say' guilty! or
not guilty gentlemen?"
"A veiy proper question in
deed," returned the Crow, and
one which ought to have been
settled; long ago. Gentlemen,
what say you? Had we not bet
ter return into Court and have
the dogs and the hare ! face to
face?"v:: ;':' :',:;: '; ':'
:" . .: c. ; ' ': t " - t v
To this arrangement the jury
agreed. The hare was sent for
and the dogs once more led for
ward. : ',,
"Now, Sir," said the Owl to
the largo dog, "can 'you swear
that this is the animal. that you
caught?" 1 , ; '.,
The dog was puzzled. It
was certainly very much like
the hare, but as to swearing it
was the identical animal no,
he couldn't do it,, hares' are so
much alike. So all ,u he could
say was, "I cannoi"
Very good," replied the Owl.
"Now then" turning to '' the
small dog "can you swear that
this is the animal you caught a
glimpse of, as it was running
along?" ;lvu :iuT
' There was a general titter at
the absurdity of such a 1 ques
tion ; and the small .' dog' hung
down his head and faintly said,
"No.":' , .: .,;.;
"Gentlemen,' said the judge,
"the case is over." It now re-'
mains for you to bring in" your
verdict, and whether that be
'guilty' or 'not , guilty,' ,'it ;,vill
be, I ain sure, a just one." -,
After retiring a ew minutes
the jury again made their ap
pearance , in
, and tho
Owl, with a most solemn, coun
tenance, put the ' I question,
'Guilty or not guilty?''' ' ' i
'We find,' replied this lbreman,
'both do18 io he guilty ' ,,,
"As I predicted," said the
Owl. 'Allow mo to compliment
you, gentlemen, upqn the man

out your arduous duties. ' With
