" A letter from George," exclalmed sister hate, coming lu from the post-ollice anu holdlng up for our Inspcction a large yellow envelope. " And addressed to mother j ian't lt Innny l " " To lne," exclalmed mother, in turn, lay ing down the blue sock she waa mending, and smothing lier apron as though ahe were going to take the baiy. " Dear me I " " Why, how queor I" said llattle, drop ping her book and looklng at Kate wonder ingly. " George hasn't written to any of us in an age, and never to ina. What secret's brewing now, I wonder ? " "llaybehe and Milly are comtng home on a visit," aaid I. "Not 80 eafly In the aprlng as tliis," re turned llattie, sagely ; "ililly and house cleaning can't bo Beparatcd." At this moment mother, Nvlio liad suc ceeded in tearing off the envelope with eager, trembling lingers, aud hadcommenced reading the letter, suddenly twistcd lier chalr around so aa to turn her faco from U9, cleared lier throat, and wiped her eyea 011 a corner of her gingham apron. "Anything the rnatter, mother?" nues tioned Kate, anxiously, wliile Ilat and i sat in wondering silence. There was no answer for a moment, then, turnlng toward us, she held out the letter, saying, "lie.nl it, Katie; Mllly ia taken very ill witb typhoid fever, and George lias written for me to come to theui. Dear child, I wish it waa so f could go." " Go I" echoed Kate decisively, " of course Jou'll go, and take one of us girls along to lelp nurne, too." " Ilut the work, my dear. How will you manage V" " Some way," said Kate. " Let's seo ; the ezpress goes at half-past eix, and it's half. past five now jtut an hour. Go and get ready, mother, and Cad and 111 pack your valise." " Ilut jour father " " We'll take care of him, never fear, and he'll be home before you go. Hat, you're not fit for much at home ezcept to run er rands and keep awake nights, and you can do that there. Get ready aa quickly as pos sible, and help mother j she's eo ezcited Bhe'll be sure to get her dress on hind side before, and forget to lace up her shoes." Jiy energetic Bister liad by this tluie galli ered together tlieir clothes, aud, briuging the valise from the wardrobe, was packing them into it in a mauner which foretold their coming out in a mass of wrinkles ; I, meantime, looked helplessly on. lly dint of her earnest efforU they were ready in seasou ; and when father camo home from his work, he found ua hailing a street car to take them to the depot. r "Now, what's to be done first V" inquired Kate, after we had seen them oif, and had re-entered the bouso with somethlng of a realizing sense of the responsibility we had undertaken weighting our minds. "There's Buprjer to cet. of course. and iMeuie can wasn tne disnes. That's all, isn't it?" "JIotherBaidsomethinc about bakinirto morrow," iBuggestod, with a vagueidea that a certain preparation was generally made concerning the bread the evening before its manufacture. "To-morrow? Well, let to-morrow take care of itself," so promptly, that I was at once silenced. " Let's see what's for supperj llght bread, cookies, lloat and cold bcef. Very good. The clouds di9perse, and the Bky is most serene aud fair. Bet the table, Cad, while I make the tea." And now, while I am doing that, if the reader will take a little retrospective glauce over our lives up to tbis poiut, she will no doubt the better understand why we were all so ignorant of household affairs. There was a large family of ai ten children in all : John, master workman in one of the ma chine shops in the flourishing manufactur ing town of which we were resident; Jlilly, the married sister and general favoritej Kate and myself, twins, both totally unlike, both in looks and dlsposition j llattie, a stu dious girl of sixteen; Uoss, a boistrous school boy of fourteen j Xellie, a delicate, petted child of eleven; and threo little boys in a row, aged respectlvely nine, seven and four, whom we call Tip, Karl and Henny. And mother did the work for us all. I dou't know how Bhe managed it, but Bhe did. Jlilly was the only one who had takcn to housework, and mother was one of those domestic burden-bearers who never consider their burden so heavy but that they can add another trille. Father had never been fortunate, pecunia rily, and, being anxious to give all their children a good education, the labor of saviug for this end was added to their other toil. Aud then, llke mauy another good and unselfish, but unwise, mother, she al lowed us our owu way, and spoiled us through indulgence; aud, as we had ofteu heard her say she would rather do a thing herself than take the trouble to teach us how, we felt as if we we were actually con ferring a favor upou lier by letting thinga alone. To be sure, we could sweep, dust, waah dishes and make beds, and were familiar with Bome of the minor details of cookery, but to be able to keep the domestio ma chinery well oiled and in constant motion was to us like trying to converse in an un known tongue. And so now, without any adequateknowledgeof work and ita respousi bilities,we found ourselves with a mountaln of difficulties toaurmount,and apretty mess we made of it for a few days, too. It was not at all diflicult to get through supper, for, thanks to mother's provident hands, there was plenty prepared for that meal, but when next morning we found the bread was out, the cookies all gone, and not a Btray pie for dinner, our troubles began and they broadened aud deepened with every moment, as we became painfully awaro that maklng bread and pastry was a branch of our education which had been terribly neg lected, and when about ten o'clock father, in blissful iguorance of thenovices incliarge at home, sent up a slrloin roast and the lu formation that a Btranger would dlne with us, and Qfteen minutes later the washerwomau brought in the clothes for us to Iron, I was ready to melt into tears, and Kate was bo cross it was dangerous to speak to her. O, that weary, weary, day I Ilut only the beginning of many similar ones that fol lowed it. How we longed for mother's skillful hands to stralghtea out the tangled threads our awkward finirers had lo produce. There was Bomethlug to be done from early morn ttll late at night s so that no Booner did we fancy ourselves free for half an hour than some duty undoae would stare us in tho face, or the children would come iu with clamoring tongues and empty stomachs, and in a few days I be came addicted to chronlo fretfulness, while Kate was tranaformed Into a veritable Bcold. John scowled over the miserable meals, Itoss teased us in every vulnerable point, but poor patient father pitied our often infirmitles, nuu aw nu waa eub ueiore nim lor con Bcience's sake. It went on in this wav for almnt. a fnrt. night, when, after a very trying day, we took our books and sat down for a nulet evening. Ilut, alaa for our bopesl Ouly teu miuutea of peace, and then an omiuous anem irom :atner caused us to look un. " Do vou know. clrls." ha 1 " whether inother meuded my panU Iwfore she went away ? I ahould like them to put on in the morning. She generally did her mendinc every week. I believe." " There I" burst out Kate, shutting her uuuk vviw a uaug, wuue 1 aiterone uespond ing glance at the fascinatlni? naraa of I)avIi1 Copperfield, went to examine tho mending It Was full to thfl lirlm nlilrlo cru.lri little gingham coats with the pocketa torn down. and buttons nnllMl l.nlf nir n. shrods of clotli hanging to them father's pants, aud Nollle's school dress, with a Uoleful skOi I lifted the basket. and with. out a word we sat dowu to the unwelcome ask.

But how much timo do you suppose ahe has had for read ing and reflection beyond the wants and necessitles of her larce familv 7 And don't you know, Cad, how often we have ex- cused ourselves from reading aloud to her, lettlDg her sit digging away in this very basket, solitary and alone, through the long evening hours ? 1 falrly hate myself when I think of it." I did, too, by this tlme, and I sald so. "Uut, Katie." I added. "isn't there a bright side to it somewhere ?" " We can make one." she answernd. deoi. sively. " I have been thinklng of that) how would it do to work and getthehou9e-clean-Ing all done before she gets home ? It will be vacation next week, and Hoss and Xcllle will bo here to help us." To this plan I readily assented, and then we went to bed. When we aroae the next morning it waa with very dlfferent views of life and its stcrn rcalities from what we had ever cherished before. Ilut we were deter mined to enter into the conllict armod with a strength higher than our own, and through that to conquer. And we did. Two weeks more, and the houae wore a new aspect from garret to cellar j every thing waa aa f resh and clean aa could be, and well repaid we felt for all our toil. One spot in the house waa our attraction, and that waa mother and father's room; hitherto a bare, sparsely furnished apartment, with the same Btamp of self de- nlal UtXin it thpm hnd altvdva Uin nnnn everything that was indivldually their ownj but now the most cheorv. tastefullv arranrad of any room in the house.

And now, with all in readiness for her coming, with a well-cooked meal upon the table, with an air of thrift and neatness upon everything, which gave us the utmost satis- muuuu we tooaeu xor our momer notnt. Ilut when she came when we saw the dear face looking eagerly out of the hack window to catch a glsmpse of home and its treasured iumates the revulsion of feellng was too much for us, and we ran behind the door to hide our tears. Such a foolish thing, but we did not stay there lonir. She ealled us asi she came in, and we came out of our hiding- luati', au Leur-si&iuea as we were, ana greetea her.

I do not believe ln coddllng them or maklng peta of them, but I bolleve ln helplng them to help themselrea, aud to reuiove aa fast aa we can tetuptation out of their way. Ono thing more. When the poor wrocks como to me by theecore I some timea tlianlc (Jod Ihaveno aon. OneScotcli. manald!"I am a loat laddle." And so many of them are loat I I sometimea thank God I ha?e no non to be lost j but lf I liad, I would rather take liim to the vilest and dirtiest grog-shop that could be found, and keep lilm there for half an hour than to take him Into the tnost respectable aocial drinkiug circle in Saratoga. If I took my boy fresh from his pure home, freah from the touch of li is mother's knee, fresh from Sunday-school exercises, iuto such a den as that I would f righteu him. Ilebeara strange sounds; he does not like the oilor of the place ; he puts his bamls to liis ears. " Take me out of this, napa. What aro those men doing 1 1 don't like it. Oh I take me away." Ilut in the aocial circle, where the tuotiier smilingly offera the wiue to her guests, and the minister under wliose preaching tlie boy has sat gives assent to it by a smile, there he will take liia flrst glaas. So lf we wish to prevent thisevil, wemust assallthedrlnk ing customs of soclely that are made fash ioiiable and re'iwctable. The moderate driuker tells us we are very hard on liiui. I do not pretend to say that the moderate driuker iutends to do thla mischief. A lady said to me; " My son, elghtoen years of age, camo from his chatnber oue New Year'n morning aud said: 'Ilappy New Year, mamma.' AVhlle seated at his breakfast he sald : ' Now, mamma, I am going out for tlie first time in my life to make New Yeir's calls, and I mean to make a busiuess of lt ; good-morning,' " and he kissed her on both cheeks. She sald she stood in the bay win dow and watched him tlll he turned the corner, and then drew a long sigh of satis f actiou. " My boy, sweet, pure, clean, lovely I I was proud of him. 1 thought of him all day." At night came a riug at the bell, a strange sort of a ring, and instoad of per. mitting the serrant to go she went herself, and there she beheld two young men hold lng up her drunken son. She said : " llring him in." They laid him on the carpet. " And then," she said, "I sat down aud lifted his head in my lap. I tried to comb his hair; it was all mattcd and darap j hla lips, that were so pure and sweet, were cracked and dry, and his breath, that was like the odor of newly-gathered violets, was a horrlble stench. My boyl The eyes half closed, just showing the white; the horrible breath jiouring forth its pestiferous ellluvia. lly boyl Itis face seemod to be so chauged. It was so smooth when he went out, but uow lt looks coarse. Mr. GoueIi," she aaid, " lf that had been the work of my boy's enemy lt would have been a comfort to look upon him and feel that it was the work of my boy's bitterest foe; but if that is the work of my boy's friends, (iod have mercy on mel for I have but very little hops for his future." And she sald that was not the last time by many that he came home to her drunk. Who gave him hia first glass ? Youub Woiunii's Chrlsllaii Tcmpcr nncc Unlung. So often coraes the innuiry, what shall we, what can we.do for society young men ? How can we reach them ? It must be done through the most natural attractions, and the most potent talismans, and by tho purest iufluencej for them. Our hopo for the young man lies ln the young woman. They will be what these requirej they will come to the standard of those whose society they seek, wliose association they wish, whose companionship attracts. To-day on the young women of America rests the destiny of the country, because they must shape the lives and characters of tlie young men. Then one grand objectlve polnt with the ttoman's Cbristian Temperance Unions is the jirt. One girl tliorougly aroused and enthused with temperance princlples, filled with a sense of her responsibility to society, to the church and to God, panoplied with the Holy Spiril, followingin the footsteps of Christ, cau iulluence her whole circle. Ooethus realizing her opportunity can band her lady frleutls into good words aud works, will take her strength, her youth, her poi tlon, her education, as so mauy gifta to be sanctified unto the Mast'jr's ira, The stuu of the Inlluencesof these separato character istics comblne lo make that subtle thing called her iulluence. Whatapower? Theu let every Woman's Christian Temperance Uuion see to it that the young ladies aro wrought upon to bring their might of youth, their prlceless dower of purity, their whole force, iuto this grand temperance work. Fill one slngle young womau witb the thougbts of what young women may and must affect iu this, and she cau touch a whole commuuity. We must be specially urgent for tbeuii for our Sunday-school teachers are two-thirds of them young womeu ; our day school teachers are three fourths of them youug women. Just a hint on these polnts ought to be sulliclent. Iu the fall campaigu let the young women's work take large place. l'ress them iuto ser vlce, aud impress them with the sense of their value aud their duty iu the case. Our friton. Hard Prcssed. The whlskey men of Topeka, Kansas, held a mass meetingon tho eveningof July 18th, to protest against the luterference of the prohlbitory law with their drunkard-maklng business. Oae of their resolutions sets forth that "both forelgn aud natlve emlgratlon has been stopped, and the growth of the state checked. Nobody will decline to go to Kausas ou accouut of prohlbition except those who are a curse to the state those who wish elther to manufacture, sell, or drluk whlskey, Any commuuity la iufinltely bet ter oll without such. Ilut everybody sliould remember that the Kansas fever, which raged so violeutly for several years, greatly sub slded last year, aud no oue expects who ia acqualuted with the questlou that hence forth shu will recelve uear tlie addition to her populatlon she has douo lu some years past. The greatest joke, bowever, is the resolutiou whtcb declares that the prohlb itory law is " detrimental to the moral as well as tlie material interests of the people." Over against this ia the fact that n prohlb itory county in Illinois sent but oue man to the penltentiary ln thirly-two years, while a saloon county ln about the same latltude sent tweuty-live at the last September term of its crlmlnal court. Wk cannot see how the evll of the rum shops and druukentiess is to be checked, ex cept by tlie stroug arui of prohlbition.

The sunaet made a glory upon the wlndows of the old manslon, and llghtcd up the balcony, on which Sir Wll llam'a baby daugliter wascrowing and cltp plng her tlny handi with glee at the sight of lt, and stole into the work room, where theyoungwt apprentice, V, lna-d Ojborne, was beguillDg his taik by singlng the bal lads of " llrave Lord Willoughby," which was as popular ln that age at " Glory IUlle lujah"isln tbis. " Ah, lf I could but have a chance of do ing such a deed as that I" murrnured the boy as lie ended. "Well, well, my brave lad," answered the cheery voice of old Sir Wllilam, who had entered the room unpercelved, " you're on the rlght road to lt by being diligant at your work. Keep to that meanwhile, and never fear but the chance of doing great deeds will come all ingood tlme." Little did elther speaker or hearer guess how soon and in what way these words were to come true. Scarcely liad the old knlght left the room when the boy was 9tartled by a audden Bhriek from the bal cony overhead, and by somethlng whlti llashlng past the window iuto the depth be low. fair William Ilewet's only child had leaped out of her nurse's arms, and fallen headlong into the rlver. The faint sjilash was inslantly answered by amuch louder one; and the distracted household, as they rushed in a body to tlie fatal balcony, saw Edward Otborne's brown curly head far down the ehlniug stream, ihooling atralght as an arrow toward the vhite speck tliat lloited a little way be yond him. " lie has her I" "Nol" " Yes I" "Xo, he'sgone past. Stayl lie'n turnlng igaln." "Hurrahl ho's got her at last. Thank God I" The anxious father's straiulng eyes were ilready tm dim to seo anything clearly j but the joyous sliout of his keen-eyed serving inen told him that all was well, and lti another moment he was hurrylng toward the sceus of actiou as fast as his feet could carry him. Hut the perll was uot over yet. Good swimmer as he was, the furlous swirl of the ourreut, together with the weight of his own wet clothes and thosi of the child, were fearful odds against the brave apprentice. I'wice his head dipped below the surface ind all seemetl over; but hestlll held the res cued Infaut above the water with one hand, vhile struggling for life with the other. J'Courage, my heartyl" said a hoarse voice beside him. " Hold up just another ininute, and all's well." At the same moment, a boat pallej by two sturdy watermen, who had put off from '.he shore on the Drst alarm, cara? sweeping up to the sinking boy. A strong hand caught the child from his faillng grasp, hile in another Instant he was seized and lragged into the boat after her, just as the laat remuaut of his overtasked streugth gava way. " Git her head around, Tom," said one of the boatmen to his comrade, "and pull with a will, for that's the youngster's father run nlng tbis way, or I'm much misUken."
