The village was smaH, and the church
was not a. cathedral,'hut a quiet, unostentatious
stone chapel, half covered by climbing
plants, and a forest of dark trees greu
round it. They shaded the interior so completely
in the summer- afternoons that the
ftguVe of the altar-piece?painted, the villagers
averred, by Albrucht Dvvier?could
scarcely .'be distinguished, and rested upon
the.broad canvas* a muss of shadowy outline.
A quaint carved belfry rose above the
trees, and ip the bright duwn of the Sabbath
a chime sweet hnd holy floated from it,
calling the villagers to their devotions; but
the bell whoseiyion tongue gave forth that
chime was not the bell that my story speaks
of?there was another, long before that was
cast, that had hung for many years, perhaps
a centuryin t|ie same place. But now it is
110 longer elevated, its tongue is mute, for it
lies upon the ground at the loot of the church
tower, broken and .bruised. It is half buried
in the rich mould, and there are green stains
creeping over it, eating into its iron heart,
no one heeds it now, fur those who brought
it there are sleeping coldly and silently all
around in the church-yard. The shadow
of those dark trees'" rests on many graves.
How came the old bell to be thus neglected
? A new generation arose?''See," they
said, "the church where our parents worshiped
fails to decay. Its tower crumbles
to dust. The bell has lost its silver tone?
it is cracked, it is broken. We will have
a new tower, and another bell shall call its
to our worship.''
_So the old belfry was destroyed, and the
old bell Taid at the foundation; it was grieved
at the cruel sentence, but it scorned to
complain, it was voiceless. They came
weeks after to rcmoveit?the remains would
still be of use ; but strive as they would, no
strength was able to raise the bell, it had
grown ponderous?it defied them?tooted
to the earth as it seemed.
I'They cannot make me leave my post,"
thought the bell?"1 will still watch over
this liolv spot. it has been my cate for
Time passed, and they strove no longer
to remove the relic. Its successor rang
clearly from the tower above'its head, and
the old bell slumbered on, in the warm sunshine,
aud the dreary storm, unmolested,
and almost forgotten.
The afternoon was calm, but the sun's
rays were most powerful. A bright, noble
hoy had been walking listlessly under the
whispering trees. He was 111 high health
end was resting from eager exercise, for
there war. a flush upon his open brow, and
as he walked he wiped the beaded drops
from his forehead.
"Ah, here is the place," he said ; "1 will

plcasanf volume." The lays of Hans Sachs
west in his hand., So the.youlh stretched his
wearied limbs upon the vtfvel gtass, and his
head rested near.the old bell, but he did nut
know it, lor there was a low shrub with
thick serrated leaves and fragrant blossoms
spreading over it, and the youth d.J not
care to look beyond.
Presently the letters in his book began to
grow indistinct, there was a mist creeping
over the page, ami w.hile lie wondered at
the marvel, a low clear voice spo'cc to him.
Yes, it called his name, "Norvaiis."
"1 am here," said the lad, though he could
see no one. He glanced upward and around,
yet there was no living creature in sight.
"Listen," said the voice. "1 have not
spoken to mortal for many, many years.
]\ly voice was hushed at thy birth. Come,
I w ill tell tliee of it " The youth listened,
though lie was sadly amazed. He fell
bound to the spot, and lie could not close
his cars,
"Time has passed swiftly," said the voice,
"since 1 watched the children who are now
men and won,en,at their sports in the neighboring
forest. I looked out from my station
in the old tower, morning and evening beheld
with joy those innocent faces, as they
ran and hounded in wild delight, fearless of
the future, and cart less of the present hour.
They were all my children, for 1 had rejoiced
at their birth; and if it was ordained
that the Good Shepherd early called one of
the lambs to his bosom,! tolled not mournfully.
but solemnly at the departure. I knew
it was far belter for those who slept thus
peacefully, and I could not sorrow for them.
,lI matked one, a lair, delicate girl, who
often seperated herself from her merry companions.
She would leave their noisy play,
and stealing with hcrbookand work through
the dark old trees, would sit for hours in
the "shadow of the tower. Though she
never came without a volume, such an one
as just now you were reading, the hook was
often neglected, and leaning her head upon
her hand, she would remain until the twilight
tenderly veiled her beautiful form,
wrapt in deep, still musing, 1 knew that her
thoughts were holy and pure; often of

hour, ami stem in prayer, (hough her
Tips moved not, and the listening breezes
could not catch a nnuncrcd word.
"liul the girl grew up, innocent as in her
childhood, yet with a rosier flush upon her
cheeks and a brighter lustre in her dreamy
eye. I did not see her so often then, but
when my voircon the bright Sabbath morning
called those who love the good Father
to come aod thank him for his wonderous
mercy and goodness, she was the first to
obey the summons, anil I watched the
snowy drapery which she always wore, as it
fluttered by the dark foliage, or gleamed in'
the glad sunshine. She did not come alone,
for her grands ire ever leaned upon her arm, j
anil she guided his uncertain steps, and listened
earnestly to the words of wisdom which
he spoke. Then! marked that often another
joined the group, a youth who had been
her companion years agone, when she was
i very child. Now they did not stray ns
hen, with arms entwined, and hand linked
in hand ; but the youth supported the grandire,
and she walked beside him, looking
timidly upon the ground, and if by chance
le spoke to.her,a bright glow would urise
to h-r lips and forehead.
" Ne?er did my voice ring out for a merrier
bridal than on the morn when they
vere united, before the altar of this very
church. All the village rejoiced with them,
lor (he gentle girl wan loved us a sister, anu
i daughter all said that the youth to whom
he had plighted lipr troth was well worthy
of the jewel he had gained. The old praised,
and the young admired as the bridal party
turned toward their home, a simple, vinehaded
cottage, not a stone's throw from
where thou art lying. They did not forget
the God who had bestowed so much ofhappiness
upon them even in the midst ot
pleasure, and often they would come in the
hush of twillight, and, kneeling hy the alter
give thanks for all the mercies thry had
"Two years?long as the period may
reeni to youth?glides swiftly past when the
heart is not at rest. Then once more a chime
floated from the belfry. It wus at early
dawn, when the mist was lying on the
mountain's side, and the dew hid trembling
in the dower hell, flighted by the first beams
of the rising day-?A son had been given
to then* a bright healthful lmbe with eyes
blue as the mother's who clasped him to
her breast and dedicated him with the first
breath to the parent who hud watched over
her orphan youth, and had given this treasure
to her keeping.
" That .bright day faded, and oven came
sadly upon the face of nature. Deep and
mournful was the tone which 1 flung upon
tli? passing wind; and the fir trees of the
forest sent back a moan from their swaying
as if for very sympathy. Life was that day
given, but another had been recalled. The
young mother's deep sleep wsis not broken
even by the wailing voice of her first born,
for it was the repose ol death'.
"They laid her beside the very spot
where she had |>a.ssed so many hours; and
then I knew it was the grave of her parents
which she had so loved to visit.
"The sou lived, and the father's grief
abated tvfien he saw the boy growing in
the image of bis mother; and when the
child, with uncertain footsteps, had dared
to tread upon the velvet grass, the father
brought him to the church-yard, and clasping
his little hands as lie knelt beside hurt,
taught the babe that he had also a father in

reckoning is required of thee."
Suddenly as it hud been borne to his ears
the voice became silent. The boy started
as if from deep sleep, and put iiis hand to
his biow. The dew lay damply upon it,
the shades of evening had crept over the
church yard; and he could scarce discern
the white slab that marked the resting place
of his mother. It may have been a dream

1 r nil IS bas Icon Ihe secret principle of too unnv
1 of ti e wholesale dealers in Teas up to this time,
and they have praline J the most shameful imposition
on the Country Merchant without any fear of detection.
Hut a new era in the Tea Trade hus come and
Pekin Tea Company claims the honor of its introduction
They were the first to raise the 1. inner of
Reform, on which it has inscribed the simple words:
A complete revolution has heen the consequence.
I.ot consumers of Tea everywhere look at what we
have done.
1st. We were the first to send them Teas that
used to he caii'-d too good for them bctorc.
2d. We have driven out the market a vast amount
ol trash, uud introduced a hitter cjass of Teas than
has ever yet heen sold, importers of Ten often come
to us to get lor their own use, and for their ir.cnds,
tine qualities they ran find nowhere the.
3d. We have reduced prices mole than 25 per r.t.,
both in Dluck and Green Teas. The wholesale
grocers say we are ruining the trade and call us
humbugs. This we have done already, and now
nee what we are ready to do.
1st. We will sell Teas by the single chest, halt
| chest or 14 pound box, at the same prices that
wholesale grocers pay to the importers when thev
huv bv the hundred nack.ioes.
2d. The wholesale grocers allow only 13 or oi
mo t 14 noun(Id tare to iho half cheat. This is n
cheat. VVc allow, iu most instances, 15 anil lt>
Iha. tare on the same.
3d. We hereby undertake to sell every kind of
Tea, from six to twelve cents per pound cheaper
than the wholesale grocers do.
How can we do thiol asks the country merchant.
This ia our answer. We are content with aoven
percent profit instead of 25 and 50 per cent, u la
wholesale grocer.
We deserve the thanks of tho country merchants
for saving them hereafter from being cheated. Let
them come to the Warehouse of tho IV kin Tea
Company, and compare samples of Tea they get
else where; and if they buy bud Teas then at high
prices it is their own fault.
An English importer lately boasted to us that lie
could make more money by sending bad Teas to the
New York inurket, than on good Teas. We arc
resolved to overthrow this fraud; and now call upon
agents in every town in the United States to come
forward and buy Teas imported by the Pekin Tea
Company, and we pledge oujhcIvos, that if in six
mouths they do not sell more Tea than the oldest
and largest dealers in tho town, wo will give them
our Tea wi/hout charge. This is plain English and
cannot be misunderstood. Wc appeal for tcstimo*
many to the immense auc.ce.~s of our Agent* in any
part of the United States.
Agents wunted in every town in the United
Status for the sale of these Teas, by which they can
make money, nnd confer a benefit upon the Public
by supplying tbe pure article.
