Hie lat on a low alooi, bee baud aaiuat tbe chimney jamb. It wai (be chimney of Aunt IVUcilla'i youib; b never would alter it ouo of iLc w ide, old fai.li loned kind, with jiot-hook, and blaziiiK lugii, and bake-oreo at one tide. Tbe oot-b!a keued bricke and faint red jlow tuadc a background for my tieter'a bead, wild tbe irreat twUt of lair hair, ud lily like alender throat. Bne ia Tery picily, ptetlier tliau anybody I ever uw, I recollected picture I looked at her a picture of Cinderella lilting in jiwt ui-.h an atiilude by the cblmuey-side. fche wti equally plutmoique at tbat moment; o far aa look go, equally worthy of s prince; but, alas! no fairy godmother wa likely to cmerjfo from (he apple room for her benefit. Aunt I'llf., who In a tmall way bad enacted ihat part toward u, wai koiic. od her biaf rocking chair, which we had no heart to sit in, ewuiiK empty in its accuutomed place, type of like etnptlnea which wo were couocioui of in other tbingi, and would feci for a luiijf time to come. Neither of u vpoke for awhile. We were tired and fpiritless, and John 8lade waa coming presently to talk over things, ao we aaved our words. Dr. Slade John was Sue.' lover. Their poor li'tlo etiL'aenient had been formed two )era ago. How many year It waa likely lo last, nobody could g'less; but Ihey held on to it bravely, and were coulent to wait.p Tretly aooti, as we 6al waiting, his elep'ioundcd without on Iho gravel, and with little lap-courteous but umicceaHary, lor Ihe door waa never locked he entered, gavo uo geDtle kii-8, me auolher, and e.tt down between us In aunty's rocking chair. It was a comfort to have him do that. The house seemed less forlorn at once. Well, children, how has tlio day gone? he asked. J j - Pretty well, replied Sue. We have been busy, andaro tired lo-uight, I think, I'm glad you are come, John dear. We were getting lonesome and dismal, Creo And I. . Lucrctia is my name; but Sue and Auut Priscilla always called me Cree. John adjusted a slick ou the embers, and with one daring poke sent a tmiguo of bright flumo upward beforo he answer ed. Tbeu betook Sue's hand in liU broad palm, and palting it gently, said, Now let's talk over matters. We ought to do cido what we are to do, we tlireo. That three was very comforting to me, but John always is a comfort. lie was made so, AuutPris said. Aud ho cer tainly carries out the ptirposo of his crea tion. Did your aunt leave any will? ho went on. Only this; and I brought from between iho leaves of the big liible, where we had found it, a half sheet of note pupcr, on which dearaiiuly had stated in brrown simple foitn. that she left all she hail io be ( finally divided between her niece, Susan and Luc.rella Pjndevter. bijnire Packard's name and Surah Hriickelt'j, our old washer-woman, were wiilti n below as wiiiifaaca. Very well, .ait) John. 1'bal's good In law, I fm.C) ; or if out, ou aie Hie near e-l reluliuiiB. and il .tours anyway, Vt'liat property did your aunt own beiide Ibis bouae? She bad an annuity of two hundred and filly a .tear, and filty dollar more dxiii some turnpike stock. That'll all, except the houso and furniture, aud there ia a mortgage of three bundled dollars on tbat. Squire Packard hokU it. The an nuity slops now, doesn't it? John rooked at though he wsnted to whistle, but refrained. Your auut was a clever manager, he said a capital manager. She made a very little go a great way, didn't she? I don't know any one elte wbo could live so nicely on three hundred a year, with mortgage interest taken out. You hare always seemed cor.y and comfortable. We always havo been. lint we had the garden, you know, and tbe cow; that gave ua two-thirds of our living, Aanty win a wonderful houktkeeper, though. Isn't it a great deal cheaper to feed wo men than men? bh always said ao. I upe it is. Men are carniverotii. A diet of lea and vegetable don't auit them veiy well; tbey aie apt to grumble fur oiue(biig mote aulid. Well, my dear Ifirir, our niiiiiii.i g op i.n't very .aliafac- tury. Rreti wilb'iul the mortgage, jou couldn't live on flay du.iar a jeir. No. And I've txeu thinking what we couid do. So h'. Cree, though we haven't ipken lo rath other abat It. I might teteb a district school, perhaps. And Cree I could take a place a plaiu cook. There Uu't anything cUe I could do ao well. Plain cooking, with dripping and soap fatty way of perquisites; audi gave a laogb which waemeaut to be wer- n- It is Lard, said John, with a woody look on hi face which rm foreign to it u.ual Iratik btibtot... How touch a lit tle tuoaty would Kimeiiuies do (or people who can't get it, and Low littrC it ii wc rib to other people, wbo fling it away ithout a thoeght of its value? A tbon-j aaoJ dollars, cow ! Any rich maa would j consider it a mere bagatelle in hUeapen-' ae; Hut If I couid command tbe torn, it j would make os three comfortable for life, j How do jot mean? What weald yon ! do with a thousand dollar If yon bad it, Jubu? I'll tell you. Lngwortby is going lo ell bis practice. Oh! It is a large practice for tbe country, you know. It brings biro lo aia or eight hundred a year sometimes more. lie has a chance to go into partnership with his brother out West somewhere, and he'll sell for a thousand. lint, John, some people like you better tbau ikry do Dr. Langwortby. Yet, some people do. Dot the que. lion is, Will Ihey like me better than the other man who buys Dr. Langwortby out? If I were that man I should com mand both practices. It is a chance, don't you see? But a new man coming in has his chance to cut me out. I tee. What can be done? Nothing, with a rueful laugh. That's the worst of It. lean only keep on and hopfl for the best, liut it is bard, when wilb this miserable thousand dollars 1 could double my chances and make nice home for yori two. bne darling, don'l cry. She had laid bur cbeelc down on bis arm, but she wasu't crying, only looking Hsully into the fir). If we sold everything, all this which auiity left us the home, everything couldn't wo geit the thoueaud dollars? I asked, desperately i John shook his bead. I couldn't let you do that, Cree, in auy case. You'd wautyour share sou day lor yourself; it miisu'l go into buying a practice for me. Hut, apart from thai, houses sell so badly uow that this would not realize much over the value of the mortgage at a lorced sale. Anil the furniture, though wortb a good deal to keep, would go for noth ing at an auction. Tbat plan wouldn't do at all for auy of us. Still, there's uo barm iu tbiuking about it, aud seeing what we have, aud what it's wortb, I orgod, loath to give up any ghost of a chance. We may do that mayn't we, John? Of course. That is a thing you must do sooner or later. L3ok over llm home and make a list carefully, and we'll con sult and fix on approximate values. Don't hurry about It, though, Next week is time enough, and I know you need rest. Host is Ihe very thing I don't need aud can't take, I cried impetuously. Some thing to fill up the long days aud keep lis from thinking aud getting blue ia what we waul. We'll make the list to-morrow, John. A little more talk and be rose to go. Did you stop at the post cflice, John? Yes. There was nothing for you. Not even the Jnleltigeneer? ahked Sue, languidly. 1 forirot to toll you. there bas been a great tire in New York, aud the Intelli gencer is burned out. Abner brought Iho news over; it was telegraphed lo the junction. They say tbe building Is a to tal loss, so I suppose there won't bo any publication for a while some days at least. Poor aunty I bow sorry she would be! sighed Sue. Aunty took the paper ever sinco it began, forty-five years ago. She never missed a number. There it all is, up stairs stacks and stacks of it. She was so uroud of her file It's uo me at all now, I suppose, is it, John? The ragman will give a penny a pound for il, I suggested; thai' something We'll weigh the lot one of Ihcse days, and ace what we can realize, said John Good-night, children. : ,. . "... ' It was a ghostly tak which we let ont to do next dsy The past Itself, tbe faint fragmentary past, seems to be wrapped up and inclosed io llioso bundles ol lime worn articles with which elderly people encumber their store rooms, and closet shelves.

She loved old things becstisd they were old, apart from use or valuo, mid instinct aud priu ciplo combined had kept her from ever throwing away auylhiug lu her life. Had she been richer, her garret would indeed have proved a mine of treasures for tbe bric-a-brao hnulers. No tin peddler would have laid eye on her andirons; her claw-legged tabiea would have held their place, her Spode tud Worcester wares sit undisturbed upon their upper shelf, century iu and out. Hut Auut Priscilla had no claw-legged tables, do braasee or old china. Instead, we found vast stores of odds and ends , bill cf by gone dre, rolls of faded chintz, papers jellow with age, parnpt lets which no mortal ever bad read or would read, old books, coverlet or with pages lorn away scraps of rusty iron, screws without head, and nails without point.

Isn't it? cried Sue, admiringly, a she drew the paper from its wrapper, and held it to tbe blau tbat sue might see the familiar page. , Meanwhile 1 look from my pocket our tuelancooly little list. You were right, John. She and I have searched the bouse over lo-dsy, and this is all there Is of any value the furniture a little silver, and these wretched Intelli gencer. I waa Interrupwwl by a startled cry. Sue was gazing at the newspsper lu her hand wilb large, dilated eyes. Her cheeks bad flashed piuk. What is il? What Is the matter I both of us cried iu a breath.

Oh, Sue! oh, John! what a piece of good fortune!- Dear auuty (blnk of her file turning out such a treasure! Il is too wonderful to be true. I feel as though it were a dream ; and I danced up and dowu the kitchen floor. John and Suo were equally excited. Only, promised Ihe former, we musu't forget that some ono else may have a file of the InteUiijencer, and get ahead of us. This wet blanket of a suggestion kept me awake all night. My thoughts kept flyiog to New York, anticipating tbe let ter which we had writton, and John posted overnight for the stage. If it should be lost In the mails! When morn ing came 1 was too weary and too fidgety 10 employ myself iu any way. liut about noon John walked in, comfort in biseyes. Why, John, how funny to see you here at this hour! Why do you look so? You haven't heard yet; you can't, for tbe let ter ia only half way there. But I Aat heard ! 1 got ahead of the lotter drove over to the junction, lelo graphed, paid for the answer, aud here 11 is. Blessed John ! This was Ihe telegram : Send file at once.

How much that message uieanU To John and Mio the satisfaction of their iovc, life spent together, tbe frui tion of deferred hopes; to mo, the lifting of a heavy weight, home, security, the shelter of my sister's wing, the added riches of a brother who was brotherly in every deed. And all this for a thousand dollars! Oh, bow much money can do sometimes! aud at o1 her tiroes, how lit tle! Wo had grown somewhat calmer, though Sue still kept her sweet face bid den on John's shoulder, and quivered and sobbed now and then, when I turned emotion iuto a new channel, by seizing a tumbler of water aud proposing this toast To the memory of the late Samuel F. Morso. John seized another, and added, The Intelligencer may it rise liko a phrrnix fi om lis ashes! 1 leave you lo guess if we did not drink this heartily. llurpcr't ltazur.

Itut there U no mora signif icant sign of the corruption of public morals, end there Is no surer way lo spread that corruption among tho young, than Ihe good hninored forbearance which such criminals nuw meet from the public, tbe leniency with which their fel ony is excused and rebaptised as a mis take bait of Mr. Mortou's virtue waa hid den from tho public, until bis expoaurc, when tbe Philadelphia press lifted it to view as Shem did his lather's garments, and walking respectfully backward, cov ered him with It. Any keen willed lad, reading Iho story as told at the lime, would be bewildered to find where the virtue ended and the crime began in such man's career. We are apt lo forget (bat tho history of the world in a few years will be made by Just such lad. Nobody, however, can misunderstand tbe meaning cf this Kentucky story. A certain lawyer In Lewis county was ap pointed Judge of Iho Criminal court, be ing a much younger man than hail ever before held tho olUoe. Uo was a briliant honorable fellow and sound jurist, thor oughly competent for his olll ;e except thai ho drank hard. Tho other day, In opening court, be was so much under the influence of liquor as to be unable lo transact business. Tho next day, being sober, he came Into court, and in a few manly direct words acknowledged tbat he was a victim to a vice which had dis graced him. I tm unworthy of tho honor and truiit cunloirud upon me, ho said, and being unworthy my ollbc I have re signed it. My judicial integrity and of ficial acts are hlatnclcis, thank Uod ! I am no longer Judge or l.ewu county. May God kerp inoln my effort lo reform, There was not a sound In tho crowded court as he spoke. No one could look st hi in aud not know the struggle through which he passed before he conld no hu miliate himself, was worse to bear Ibau death. Hut Iheie is no one whose heart would not warm to an offender who is man enough to acknowledge his error, aud go honestly and humbly to work to regain his lost place. When the Judge entered tho court, says tho paper from which we borrow Iho story, tbe public feeling against him was tbat of anger aud contempt; but when he went out every mau there was his friend and ready lo hold out a helping hand to him. We havo faith in the future of a man who, having fallen, could thus make firm ground under his feet for a new path In life. Both God and man help those that tbat help themselves lu this fashion. JV.

What would Iho folks over the way say, to see the pmfossor walk lug out with a big turkey under his arm? That was Iho way Ihe thing presented It self to the good nntured college student acting as private, tutor In Iho family. Hut Mrs. Simpson, the purity ami practical housewife, had no such Idea of (be fitness of such things. It wa Ihe day before Thanksgiving, aud tbo farmer who had agreed to supply her with a turkey had brought it, hut bad not weighed it, and, of course, they could not agreo on Its weight, all of which ended in tho startling proposition wilb which we began. Well, if you areu'l the Iszlest man! Just as though It wa going lo hurt you any to take this bird to the corner and back! she went on, aa she saw me look ing, apparently, lor a bole lo crawl Into, but, iu reality, for the broom, which, when I found, I made use of for pulling Into execution a plan I had formed for weighing die turkey al home, I bung Ihe broom handle lo die ga jet by a wire loop, aud slid it along In the loop until it balanced. By this time al' were curious to see what I was about. I then fixed a wire to tho tin key's feet and booked It so that il would slide on the broom handle. Next 1 got a ft it Iron aud fixed it in tho same way. When ibe broom was nicely balanced, 1 hung the turkey ou the broom eud of tho stick, two inches from the balancing loop. Then I hung tho II it iron on tho other side, and shoved it along until it balanced tho tur key. Next I measured tbe di.laneea of tho turkey and flat iron from Ihe balanc ing loop, and found that (he turkey hung two inches aud tho fl iliron eight inches from Ihe balancing loop. That wa all. I had found tho weight of (he turkey, aud told tho in: Twenty-four piuud. Do you s'poso Pin going to believe all that tomfoolery? It doesn't weigh mora than twenty, I know. Here, Maggie! Take this out and ask Albro to weigh It for yon. I'm blamed if be hasn't hit it about right, said the farmer who bad brought tbe turkey. How did you find out? Well, you see, said I, tho (I .it Iron La a figure C on It; that shows that it weighs six pounds. Now, if the (in key bad not weighed more than die fliiliou they would buve balanced each other al the same distance from the bilaiiclug loop; hut Ihe turkey was the heavier, ao I had to move die fit' iron out further. Al the sn inn distance from the loop as the tur key (two inches), the fUtirou pulled six pounds weight, and at every addition of that distiiucii il would pull six pound more. Tims: al four inches It pulled IwelVii pound-; at six iucli, eighteen p -Minds; sud at eiht in-jhiM, twenty f mr pounds. Al I Imi di'Unct! Il j lit b tlaiiced the luikev, thus pioving that lu weigh ed Well, Maggie, whl doe Albro ? Twenty-four pound, mum, replied Maggie, coming iu. Well, I give up, ssid Mrs. Siiiipon ; snd she did, sud so do 1 till next lime. A very pathetic description of ibe perils of lifu in the Black Hills, I given in the following i-xlruci ft om the letter of a miner lo his brother living in Neva da: I've been spending the last week trying to think of some plan which will enable me to get borne. If 1 only had t.J 1 could get to Cheyenne, aud then it would be easy sailing Into civilization. If you send tbe money by expre, tbe In dian are sure lo get 11, aa Ihey p.t open a Wells-Kargo coach every few day. If you scud It by mail, 1 wouldu't get II for months, ks ihe post master is iff on a big diunk most of tbe lime, and can't read an) how. Don't send a draft ou tba bank, a it is liable lo bust. If you know eouie friend coming to the Hills, don't if list him with tbec-sh, a be 1 sure to gamble it all off at Cbe)eiiue, or get rob bed at Custer. If jon esn think of soma way of sending the rnoury that it will be sure lo gel here, scud It right away; but unless you aie sure don't risk It. Per haps you hail better come yourself and bring it. The brother wrote in reply: Ju.t borrowed Ii lo settle a bond bill. A boy undertook lo torture a watp by touching t lighted match to It body. j The wa.p applied Its warm aide lo tba bo)'a bend, and at il flaw away it gsve ibe boy these word of wisdom, Never try to beat a man at bis owu game. TU love of money is lite fool ol alt j evils. i J lonely i the best policy.
