Better Than Gold.
rtpttet than prandrur, bettor thnn irold,
Than rank and tiilrs a thousand fold,
I a healthy tody and mind at easo,
And simple pleasures tbat always pleaso.
A heart I lint can fil for another's woe.
With sympathies larire cdoukIi to enfold
All men i s 1 rotlitrs in bolter than gold.
rtctter tlinu gold Is conscience clear,
Tbo' tolliiiK lor t rend in nn bumble sphere,
Ioub!y blossed with content and health.
Untried by the lii-ts and cares ol wealth.
Lowly llvintf and lof iy thought
Adorn and ennoble u poor man's cot
For mind and morals In nature's plan
Are the jreuuiuu lee is of a gentleman.
Better than gold Is the sweet renoso
Of the sons of toil when the labors close;
Better than gold is the poor mun'g sleep,
Andtho bulm tbut drops on his slumben
Bring sleeping draughts to tbo downy bed
Where luxury pillows its aching head.
The toller simple opiatu deems
A shorter route to tbo laud of dreaqig.
Potter tban gold is a thinking mind,
Tbat in the realm of books can find
A treasure aurpaHaing Australian ore,
And live with the great and good of yore,
The sage's lore and tbo poet g lay,
The glories of empires passed away;
The world's great dream will thus unfold
Aud yield a trcueuio better tban gold.
Better thnn gold it a peaceful home,
Where all the fireside characters come,
The shrine of love, the heaven of life,
Hallowed by mother, or sister, or wife,
However bumble the homo may be.
Or tried by sorrow with heaven's decree.
The blefsinps that never were bought or sold,
And center there are better than gold.
A WIFE'S FAULT.
"Five pounds of grapes!" said old
Mrs. Mildmay in astonishment. "Are
jou quito sure tbat you understand
your mistress' order, Hester? White
grapes are so dear, and surely for so
tniall a dinner-party as this "
"Thero's no mistake, ma'am," said
Hester pertly. Servants will soon learn
tho spirit of their superiors, and Hester
knew that young Mrs. Mildmay was
not particularly partial to her hus
band s step-mother. "I took tho order
myself, and it ain't likely that I should
"Hester is quite right," said Mrs.
Rufus Mildmay, who came in at that
moment, a handsomo brunette, in a
pink cashmere morning-dress, trimmed
with bands, a la militaire, of black vel

co gown which her mother-in-law was
accustomed to wear about her morning
avocations at home. "Aud I do wisl

'Hie old lady's sereno brow flushed.
"My dear," she romonstrated, "I do
not wish to meddle with your concerns;
but I really fear that lttifus's income

lady. "And you seem to forget?
mama, that people don't live nowadays
as they did when you were a girl."
Mrs. Mildmay said nothing more. It
was not the first time, nor yet tho sec
ond, that she hail been given to under
stand, by Mrs. Ilufus. that her interpo
sition in household affairs was unwel
come. The stepson, whom sho loved with as
fond a devotion as if ho had been her
own child, had married a beautiful girl,
and settled in the city.
So far, all was well, although Mrs.
Mildmay had secretly hoped that he
would love sweet Alice Aclou, the
clergyman's daughter of l'ole Hill, and
fettle down on the old f;irm, as his
father before him hud done.
Yet if Ilufus was happy, sho also
would r jicv, she assured herself,

Rosamond and her cook wero holding
counsel as to a proposed diner-party,

"I don't think, that Rosamond wants

"I hope, mother," ho said, "she has
not said anything to "
"It is not natural that she should
need my presonce," said tho old ladv
gently. "I might have known it; now
i am certain of it. Home is the best
placo for mo. But remembor one
thing, dear Rufus. Do not outspend
your income. Rosamond is young and
thoughtless. You yourself are Inexpe
"Oh, it's all right, mother," said the
young man carelessly. "But I did hopo
that you could be happy hero!"
Mrs. Mildmay shook her head.
"I shall see you sometimes," said
she. "If evor you aro in trouble,
Rufus-you or Rosamond, either-you
will know where to come."
So the old lady went away from tho
pretty bijou of a house in Parabolo
place, with Its bay windows, its Turco
man portieres, and the boxes of flowers
In all the casements.
"Rosamond," said the young hus
band, as he studied ovor the list of
weekly bills a short time subsequently,

"Facts and figures," answered Rufus.
"Just look here, Rosio."

Rosamond, impatiently turning her
head away, "and I won't so there!

with a sweet sportive laugh. "How do

"I shall wear it on Thursday evening."
"Do you think. Rose," said the young
man gently, "that it is wise for us to

"And, after all," said Rufus, "what

iuo ravine, wuero a restless pool of ink
black water boiled and bubbled at tho
foot of a perpendicular mass of grey
rock, under the shadow of cloomy
evergreens; the sunshine glittered with
frozen brightness over tho hills, and
the old lady was often seeretlv sad at
heart as sho sat all alone in the t rim
son parlor by tho big fireplace, when
the logs blazed in tho twilight.
And as the New Year passed, and the
bitter cold of January took possession
of tho frozen world, a vague apprehen
sion crept into her heart.
"Something is goinr to happen, she
said. "I am not superstitious, but
there are times when the shadow of
coming events stretches darkly across
the heart. Something is going to hap
And ono afternoon, as tho amber
sunset blazed behind the leufless trees,
turning tho snowy fields to masses of
molten pearl, sho put on her fur-lined
hood and cloak.

she. "I shall certainly become a hy

She took a Ions brisk walk down by
the ruins of the old mill, through tho
cedar woods, across the frozen swamp,
ana men sue paused.
I will come back by the Black

funerally shaded by tho hemlocks,
which grew there to a giant size; and
when Mrs. Mildmay got beneath their
Dougtis, she started back.
Was it the illusive glimmer of the
darkening twilight, or was it really a
man who stood close to the edge of the

She was barely in time to catch him
in her arms and drag him back from
tho awful death to which he was hurl
When they reached tho edar-wains-
cotcd parlor, where tho bla. 'g log cast
a ruddy reflection on tho rod moreen
curtains, Mrs. Mildmay looked into
her stepson s face with loving eyes.
And now, Ilufus," said she, "tell
me all about it. The Lord has been
very good to you in saving you from a

said recklessly. "I am a ruined man!
I shall bo dishonored in the sight of the

"Rufus," said the old lady tenderly,
"do you remember when you used to

you remember how you used to confide

So ho told her all of the reckless ex
penditure on Rosamond's- part his
own, also, ho confessed which had
woven itself liko a fatal web about
his feet of the unpaid bills, tho clarn-
oring tradesfolk, tho threats of public
exposure, which had driven him at last
to tho forgery of his employer's signa
ture, in order to free himself from one
or two of tho most pressing of theso

"Rufus," said his stepmother, "what

"Two thousand pounds," ho answer
ed, staring gloomily into tho firo.
"Exactly the amount of tho Govern
ment bonds which your father left me.'
said Mrs. Mildmay; "they would have
boon yours at my death. They aro
yours now, Rufus.
"Mother, you don't moan "
"Tako them," said Mrs. Mildmay,
tenderly pressing hor lips to his foro-
hoad; "go to tho city tho first thing to
morrow morning and wlpo this stain
from your life as you would wipe a few
blurred figures from a slate. And then
begin tho record of existence anew."
And up in tho little room which he
had occupied as a child, Rufus Mild
may slept tho first peaceful slumbers
which had descended upon his weary
eyelids for many and many a night.
In tho midnight train from town
camo Rosamond Mildmay to The Hom
ocks, with a pale terrified faco and
"Ob, mothor, mother!" she sobbed,
"where is ho my husband? lie has
left mo, and tho letter ou tho dressing
table declared that ho would never re
turn alive! Oh, mother, it is my fault!
I have ruined him! Help mo, comfort
mo, toll me what I shall do!'
Mrs. Mildmay took her dsuighier-in-law's
haud and led her softly to the
littlo room where her husband lay
Rosamond drow a long sobbing sigh
of relief, and clasped her hands togeth
er as if In mute prayer at tho sight.
"Hush!" said the old lady; "do not
wako him. Ho is worn out, both in
mind and body. Only bo thankful that
(iod has givon him back to you, almost
from tho grave.
And as tho two women sat together
by tho blazing logs in tho crimson par
lor, Mrs. Mildmay told Rosamond tho
whole story of tho meeting at tho Black
"Mother," said Rosamond with a
quivering lip, "it is my doing. You
warned mo of this long ago. Oh, why
did I give no heed to your words? I
deserve it all!"
"You will do better for the future,
my doar," said tho old lady kindly.
"Only bo bravo aud steadfast."
So tho young people went back to tho
city and commenced tho world anew,
withdrawing from tho maelstrom of
"society," aud living within themselves.
Mrs. Mildmay, senior, camo with
them, and Rosamond is learning the art
of housekeeping under her direction.
"Mamma is an angel!" says tho
young wife enthusiastically. "And if
I could only bo just liko her, I should
have no higher ambition."
A Methodist Gltost Story.
Ono secret of tho power which at
tends tho simple ministratious of tho
Methodist preachers of tho primitive
typo was that spiritual and unseen
things wero to them what they aro tru
ly, more real than tho objects of mero
sense. Tho training of some of these
men was favorable to this. An illus
tration was onco given by an old man
with whom 1 used to chat in tho neigh
borhood of Boscastle. One evening,
as wo sat by the firosido, I referred to
tho ohl Minister Church not far oil', in a
romantic valley, and spoke of tho curi
ous, ghastly legends that floated about
it. "Yes, sir," said he, "queer things
have been said, and queer things have
been met- with, say what wo may.
There was one John Warden, sir yes,
John Warden that afterwards got to be
a preacher. John Warden, sir, was a
fanner's boy a laborer, poor fellow.
The Lord touched his heart, sir, and
John Warden turned Methodist. Well,
sir, his master and all about him turn
ed upon him, andtho poor boy had to
bear all sorts of persecution. One
night, as they wero all sitting around
the firo in the kitchen, and many ways
had been tried to put poor John out of
temper, tho master said at last: 'Relig
ion, eh!' said ho. What kind of relig
ion hast thee got, John, eh? Why,
thoo'st bo afraid to go down to the
church to-night at 12 o'clock. Religion,
eh!' This was a sort of a challenge,
sir, to try whether John was good
enough to be abovo fear. Poor John,
sir, in tho simplicity of his heart,
thought tho credit of his religion was
really at stako, and screwing up his
courage, no said quietly: '.No, 1 beau t
afraid to go to tho church by night or
by day.' 'Will thee go to-night, then,
and lot's see what your religion is
made of?' 'Yes, I will.' They waited
till midnight, and John started, sir.
Tho farm was not far up from tho val
ley. The question was now they should
know ho had been to the church. A
plan was hit upon. Ho was to take a
largo spike nail and a hammer, and to
drive tho nail into tho church door.
John went off with his hammer, nail,
and a lantern; aud ho told me after
ward, years afterward when he was a
preacher yes, sir, he never forgot it
'As 1 went down among tho trees,' says
John, 'and the wind moaned, I felt a
little queer, but I got to the church all
right, though just as I was goin into
wie cnurcu uio winu came wnistlinf

light I declare I then wished myself
away irom me piace. it was pitchy
dark. I asked God to hob me. and I
then felt my way to tho door, put my
nail to it and gavo tho first blow. I felt
a tingling all over mo as tho echoes
wont round inside the church. Thoy
sounded hollow. But I picked up cour
age and hammered away until the nail
was a long way in. Then I turned and
groped my way back to tho farm.
They laughed at me, and said they
would go down iu the mornitxr t0 bo
sure I had been there. They went
down early, and there was tho nail.
But when they opened tho door to see
whether it had went through, oh, how
thoy stared at ono another!" There was
the nail turned back, turned in and
clenched to tho door as if the cleverest
carpenter in the world had done it.' "
"Looking for a Bank."
Yesterday afternoon an officer pa
trolling Griswold street observed a
stranger closely scanning tho various
buildings, as if measuring their dimen
sions with his eye, and finally inquired
if ho was looking for any particular
