Mr. licvciiy resolved that lie would not immediately cek new qiiniici'A fir the continuance of his trade.

Mercy! cried Ihe former, I wonld not have been in bis place when Florence Bi-verly came along upon the. eeeae, for all (bo money in Boston. It wan certainly humiliating, ataentcd the other. But, he added reflectively, Aclou never was really high-toned. I one his family is rather lowerad, any way. And in this conclusion the young men fully agreed. And they further agreed that Ihey should not, in the future, re cognize (ieor;re Acton as an acquaint ance. A week later, Lewis and Bugbee had an occasion lo call at the office where Mr. Beverly had established his head quar ters, and they were not a little snrpiised at beholding George Aclon seated at the desk of the conlldcntial clerk and eorren politico!. It was a private room, with ultifB door, which (ieorge occupied, and they did not go iu there; bnt ventured to ask 0110 of t'.ie book-keepers, if Acton had been permanently employed. I dou'i know almm that, replied the book-keeper. I only know (hat Mr. Beverly seems to have taken sudden and strong liking for the young man that he entrusts hint w ilh his private correspon dence, and bus given him adiotne beneath bis own roof. Another day came a day when the sleighing was excellent, undwhen merry bells w ere jingling far and near. Through the kindness of a friend, Lewis and Bug bo hail managed to secure a team for lbs afternoon, and they drove out upon on of the Brighton roads. Out in thf coun try they met the superb double culler of Mr. Beverly, drawn by alpair of rattling bays. Upon the front scat sat the mer chant aud his wife, and upon the back seat, smiling aud chatting wilh all the grace and charm of friends who had giv en to each other (he fullest trust and con fidence, sat George Actou and Florence Beverly. Wlutl did it mean? If Philip Lewis and Clarence Bngbee are not stupid beyond belief, they must cro this have solved the problem ; and may the solution give them new and en larged views of life and its duties! iiii'. nitsr iHiii'aa.MA dullaiu, The first tkotisaiid dollars a young man, alter going out into Ihe world lo act for hiiusell, earns and saves will generally stride the qncntion of business life with him. There may be exceptions la ibis slaiement ; )el, for a rule, we think it w ill hold true. The liisl condition j that the young man actually earns tho thousand dollars in question. . He docs not inherit this sum. It does not come lo him by a atreak ol gootl link, as the result of a (ordinate vcimiic iu ihe purchase and sale of a hundred shares of stock. It is Ihe Iruit of personal industry, lie give his time ami his labor for it. Whila he is thus earning und saving it, he must esra two or tin ee, or perhaps lour tiiues as much to pay his current expenses. He i con-coii-icqucutly held sternly 10 the task of industry for a considciabie period. The direct consequence to him is steady, con tinuous and solid discipline in the habits of industry in patient, persistant, fore casting ami self denying effort breaking up all tendencies to indolence and frivol ity, and making him an earnest and w akhful economist of time. He not only learns bow to work, but he also acquires the love of work: and, moreover, he learn the vaiy of the sum which be has thus saved out of bis earnings. lit has toiled for it ; he has observed ita slaw In Iiiftcnkc from time to time; aud in his es timate il repieent so many months or tears of practical labor. His ideas af life are shaped by its own exptriencc. These natural 1 -fire! a of earning tha first tkoo sand dollar we hold l 1st very large Leio lils. They are just the quaities ef mind ami body which ara most liksly to secure hiisines success lu aftrr years.

The workeis In aotne suitable sphere are the only really strong men In this world. ftAMiau A riu A wrltir In the Cougrrgatlonalist tells this anecdota of Ir. Todd ; His first settlement was wilh a church that, like many others iu Massachusetts about that time, had just come off Iroui Ihe Town Society, a majority of whom had become "liberal," or Unltarlaus leav ing all their rights in the house of wor ship and In the church property. Most of the more wealthy were left with the old society. They were very bitter in their feelings toward Ihe seceders, and showed their bitternes iu various ways, not always very refined or indicative of good breeding or special "liberality." One of the most influential men of the "liberal" society exhibited his feelings towards Ihe new church by naming one of his pigs after their young pastor, call ing It "Parson Todd." This, of course, excited great merriment among all the op posers of the enterprise, and was on the lips of every one. It soon reached the the ears Mr. Todd, aud one morning, see ing this influential gentleman across the narrow common that ran through the village, he passed over and met him with one of his blandest salutations. Good morning, Mr. ; I understand you have named one of your pigs after me ; calling it 'Parson Todd.' Yes, sir, I have, replied the man, not little embarrassed. Well, sir, I am greatly obliged to you for selecting the likeliest one of your family. ' The editor of the St. Louis Globe must, we think, have been bitten by a mad dog. At any late he is mad at the dogs of his stale, and in a recent number of bis paper slings arithmetic at Uiem in the fol lowing startling manner : Our 400, (XX) dogs furnish one of the most affecting ecoinomlcal considerations now effecting the state. In the first place Ihey militate against the mutton crop an nually to the extent of at least IS.OW.OOO ; secondly they cost at an average of 25 cents a week each, to,o00,000 enough to run ail our common schools and leave a large surplus; thirdly, ihcyslay annually through hydrophobia, at least 120 persons, which at $5,000 each -the average price paid by the railroads for the very poorest of brakemen amount lo a further sum of 600,000.

Certain kinds of mistaken politeness sincere as they are, are absurd enough to be grotesque. A common mistake of this sort, with many persons, eveu in large cities, is to say "Kxcuse my glove" wheu they offer their baud to a casual acquaint ance, or an introduction to a stranger. It might be inferred from this remark that the wearing of gloves Is extremely rare iu a civaliied community , or lhal the wearer wishes to advertise the extraordi nary fact that he has gloves. All he really desires is lo appear polite; never suspec ting for a moment that he is simply ridiculous. . If you offer to shake hands wilh any one In a place where it is customary to wear gloves, you certaiuly need no ex cuse for compliance with the habit. You might with equal reason, 011 receiving a visitor at your house, apologUe to him for not removing your coal before bid ding him welcome. The superfluous phrase probably had its origin in the days -when gloves weie clnmsy, and used more for protection than as an esseutial of dress. Then the naked band was thought to be an evi dence of good will and cordiality, .'since gloves have beea universally adopted, the idea of asking pardon for weariug them is an anachronism as well as an im propriety. Gloves are now made to fit exactly, so thai, were it courtesy to take them off on encountering one's friends or acquain. lances, an amount of lime and (rouble would be required which would inevita bly rentier a social greeting ai once a comical exhibilion and a lore. fan.

Many large iron works have already failed, many more are keeping from bankruptcy by making all the lieu Ihey can and selling their products below cost, finding it safer to do this than to stop, although either course must lead to ruin sooner or, later; aud before spring we may expeet to wit ness the closing of many works now mak ing a great show of unprofitable activity. Already labor skilled In branches of iron working is grcHtly in excess of the re quirumeuts of the taatla, ami before the end of the year will bo superabundant. Wages liHVe, It Is true, declined from 10 to '2a per cent., aud In some instances more, where neither skill nor experience are required; but (be ratio of decline in the price of manufactured iron to the de cline in the cost of production lias been as two or three to one. This condition of affairs cannot continue. If labor will not yield onr furnaces must blowout and our mills close and the ultimate consequence of trade union lolly will be to drive cap ital out of manufacturing into other and safer investments, leaving labor without employment. These are plain truths, stated in simple language The most ig norant workman can understand them, and the most unreasonable partisan of the trade unions must admit their truth. We have sought earnestly and hopefully for some sine of revival iu the iron business that would encourage the hopo that bet ter times are at baud; but with all our facilities lor learning the exact condition of business In all parts of the country, wo have found nothing to warrant the belief that any improvement can be ex pected before spring. Whether It comes then or not will depend upon circum stances. If wages decline to a point that will enable makers aud maufacturers of iron to meet tbo views of consumers without loss, we may expect a gradual but steady improvement iu the consump tive demand with better prices; if wages do not decliue, and manufacturing can only be resumed under existing condi tions as regards the cost of labor, the trade will not revive, and we shall have beforo us another year of dullness and stagnation. In view of these facts, which no oue who knows the condition of the iron trade of this time will venture to question or deny, the folly of strikes to resist reductions in wages is apparent to the simplest understanding. There are iu this city 70,000 able bodied men abso lutely without employment, and among them are many skirled Irou workers, moulders and pattern makers. In all the great irou making districts there is a growing disproportion between the sup ply of labor aud the demaud for it, and every week this disproportion becomes greater. The unions may temporarily re sist (he tcudency ol the times, and force embarrassed employers iu their emer gency to accede- to unjust demands, but by so doing they will only hasten the end and bring upon themselves the evil of en forced idleness. Iron Aye. A KsNA V ON COKIiKCT ti l A M M A It. The editor of the Hooskk Falls Utan dard gives (he following short essay on correct grammar, which Is very good ; we may ssy it is Indeed excellent. The logic which be uses to elucidate his theory of syntax is somewhat governed by Hule 1. It is naughty but it's nice. Taken as a whole, however, we agree wilh brother Livingstone, and hope he will press the subject closer: "A searcher after truth writes to ask us which is grammatically correct, 10 say the house is building, or the house is being built, the street Is paving, or the street is being paved? There is a wide diversity of opinion on this subject; but we incline to favor is being built, for these reasons: Suppose you wish to ex press another kiud of an Idea, would you say, fur instance, Johnny is spanking or Johuy is being spanked. The difference to you may seem immaterial, but it Is a matter of importance lo John; and it is probable that if any choice were given him, he would suddenly select the former alternative. You may say again, the mis sionary is eating.

KICK I lOlli I'ltllAIISK. A boy borrowed a tool from a carpen ter, promising to return it at night. Before evening he was sent away on an errand, and did not return until late. Before he went ho was told that his broth er should see the article returned. After be had como homo and gone to bed, he inquired, and found that the tool bad not been sent to its owner. He was much distressed to think his promise had not bcou kept, but was persuaded to go to sleep, and rise early and carry It homo the next morning. By daylight ho was up, and nowheto was the tool to be found. After a long aud fruitless search, he set oil' for his neighbor's In great distress, to acknowl edge his fault. But how. great wits his surprise to find the tool on his neighbor' door-stone! And then it appeared from the prints of his Ii 1 1 lo bare feet in the mud, that tbo lad had got tip lu his sleep and carried the tool homo, and gouo to bed again, wilhout'knewing it. Of course a boy who was prompt in his sleep was prompt when awaki I Iu lived respected, had the confidence of his neighbor's, aud was placed in many olllccs of trust and profit. If all grown folks felt as this boy did , there would be a good many tracks of bare feet found some of these bright morn ings; and what piles of tools and books wonld be found at the owners' doors! HOW UK GOT HIS MONK 1 Isaac Klche, who left a million and three-quarters a year or two' ago to found a college iu Boston, began business thus: At eighteen he came lloiu Capu Cot) to Boston with (.lorti in his possession, aud looking ubout for something to do, rising early, walking lur, observing close ly, reflecting much. Soon he had an Idea: He bought three bushels of oysters, hired a wheelbarrow, Initiid a picco of board, bought six small plate, six iron forks, a thrce-cem pepperbox, and one or two other things. Ho was at Ihe oys ter boat, buying oysters, al three o'clock iu the morning, wheeled them Unci! miles, set up his board near a market and began business. Ho sold out his oys ters as fast as he could open them, and al a good profit. Unrepealed this experi ment morning after morning, until be had saved $1110, with which he bought a horse aud wagon, aud had five cents left. How are you going to board your horse? asked a stable keeper, who wit nessed this audacious transaction. 1 am going to board him at your stable. But you're a minor, replied the eule Yankee. Aud mind, I can't trust you more lhau a week. The next morning the lad, who had established a good credit wilh oyster men; bought 13 bushels of remarkably fine oysters, which he sold in the course of the day at a profit of $17. Ko he was able lo pay for his horse's board. And right there iu the same market he contin ued to deal i it oysters and fish fur forty years, became king of thai business, aud ended in fouudiug a college.
