A True Wife.
Myra Aspsnwall was left an orphau

was no beauty, and in truth her fea
tures were quito irregular, but there was
a gleaming of superior intellect i.llher
eyes,and a serenness upon her brow that
told of a pure nature, which, if it did not
attract, instantly won upon more inti
mate acquaintance, the highest esteeni.
IHer uncle was a poimpous old gentle
man of tl Virginia school, and loved
to display his lispllitality, and therefore
encouraged the frequent visits of nu
merour friends, so that his nsion was
over the seat of lifo and liability.
lie was a file. robust looliug person
and lie admired the society of the young
and gay. Ils wife, who was still very
handsome, of late seemed disposed to
be rather hyphocondriacal, and spoit
much of her time in her own room.
Consequently, as they had no daughter;
Myra was called upon to exert herself
the more in entertaining guests, and,
keeping unsullied the social honors of
the house. Yet amid all the splendor
and duazling efforts of fashion by which
she was encompassed, she still retained
that simplicity of soul which was hers
when she lay weeping upon her loth
Among her suitors was a y, tg.

The wedding soon followed, and was
colobrated with much display. Thoe
P'resident gave away tiho bride, and
amid the congraulations of the most dis
tinguished of the land, the young cou
ple left for a short tour to the South.
When they returned, Mrs. Sunnier
issued cards for a largo reception, and
as it was to be a stylish one, she was
very desirous that Mrs. Mooro should
appear elegantly attired. She knew
her plain taste and convictions on
extravagance, for she had selected her
marriage wardrobe with great economy;
so she tok. no of her own handsome
helad-dre y mposed of white ostrich
plumes, aud persuaded Myra to wear it
together with a splendid brocade .robe,
on that lar occasion.
Not r this Mr. Moore rented
a uuse, and Myra soon

rove how well

Myra went simply driessed, awring
nothing for the body's adornment, but
seeking a as, in all her walks in
so to the mind. The next
day 'hush asked her:
' Why she ofaToved such plainness
the last evening---that her whiteoplumed
head dress would have added much to
the lbeauty of herattire.'
She told huim that the article he spoke
of .helonhged to her aunt.
lie then presented liher with a sum of
montey, tellin.g her to purchase one of
the silliw dtie lscriptlion for liersolf.
She took it, and sinilingly said that
she would ' do everything that would
insure the hllapiniiess of ono she loved

Yes, the young wife beogan in the
right way. Thile little ball of shining
ti ine gradually increased in size as
the thrifty hand spun1 mid wyound mitil
it became too largo to clasp. The
owner soon had a sulperluity of the
golden cord, and gay abundant girdles
to tie up the flowing and tattered
garments of the indigent.
Husband and wife were blessed in
seeing their children fashioned after
their own minds ; but the influence of
this dutiful, loving Myra, was not con
fined to the homo circle alone, but
widened as the ripples of water, after
a pebble has been thrown into it.
0 woman ! you can make your hus
band what you will. Think of it, and
feel the responsibility that rests upon
you. Pray and strive to root out all
selfishness in your heart, and nobly
fulfll your destiny by becoming A
e Way of the World.-Men may
'wear, gamble, profane the Sabbath,
be obscene in speech and licentious in
:conduct-they may absent themselves
from home and spend whole nights in
laociviousness, lust, excess of wine revel
ings, banqueting and abominablo
idolatries-and yet none lose their
place in society; but be recognized its
honorable men. But lota woman follhow
their exalmple, and she is driven, like
Eve, from the social paradise. If even
the breath of suspicion blow upon her
vestal rioil, it is soiled. If she laps,
but oll, fronmi the path of ldaty, "'she
falls like 1Lucifer." No patience, lhow
over protracted, can place her on t ihe
pedestal fromt whichli she fell. No tears
can wasli away the stalin upoln lir fair
namue. You mighlt as well at.talnpt to
reconstruct a broken vase, or to restore
the tints and fragrance of at flohiwr.

savage and naked they have neither

They do not marry, but live indiseri

very rapidly, and with very little

her child for only a short 'tino, accus

itself, it wanders away where it will,
and the mother thinks no moro about
it. The l)okos are invaluable as
