'Wbat w tlitt' exolamed Mrs. An

her, as a eiojtla atraic of trjusio vibrated
for a few minutes on tbe atmosphere.
' A violin. I suppose,' wbh answered.
'A violin I' Ao expression almost of
horror came into tbp countenance of Mrs.
Andrews 'It can't be possible.'
It was pi 8.ib!e, however, for tbe sound
came again, Turulongad and varied
'What does it mean?' asked Mrs. An
dreas, look iog troubled, and moving un
easily in her ebair.

'Nut dancing, surelj I'
But, ever, as Aire. Andrews said tbis, a
man Dtered,earrine in hie hand a vii.lin.
There vm an ins.nt movement on the part
of several tuembere of the company ; part
ners w-ere chosen, and ere tbe pious Mrs.
Andrews bad time to collect ber suddenly
LewiJered thoughts, the oxaeie bad struok
up, and tbe dancers were in tnotion.
'I cau't remain bore. It's an outrage 1'
said Mrs. Andrews, waauug a aaution to
rise.
Tbe lady by whoa efre was einir.r cm-
preheadeol ow more clearly her state of
mind, and laying a fcaod oa bet arm, gent-.

'Why not remainf What is an outrage,
Mrs. Andrew?' the suited,
'Mrs. Burdick knew very well tbat I was
a member of tbe church Tbe lady's
manner was indignant. ,
'AH your friends know that, Mrs. An
drews,' replied the lady, A tbird person
might have detected in ber tones a lurking
sarcasm. Bat this was not perceived by
tbe individual addressed.
But wbat is wrong ?'
'Wrong! Isn't tbat wrong ?' And she
glanoed toward tbe macy wreath of human
figures already circling; on tbe floor. 'I
could Dot have believed it of Mrs. Burdick;
and she knew that I was professor ofre

'She does not expect yoa to dance, Mrs.
Andrews,' eaid tbe Udy.
! 'But she expects me to conntrnance tbe
tin ana tolly by my preeenob.' '
'Sin and folly are stroog terms, Airs.
Andrews.'
I know they are, and I use them advis
edly. I bold it a sin to dan 'e '
1 know wise and good people wbo bold a
iff'-rent opinion.'
Wise and good !' Mrs. Andrews spoke
ritb strong disgust. I wouldn't give
much for their witdom and goodness not

'The true qualities of men and women
are best seen at home. When people go
abroad, tbey generally change their attire
mental as well as bodily. Now, I have
seen tbe borne life of certain ladies, who
do not think it a ein to dance, and it was
full of the bean's warm sunshine ; and I
have seen the home-life of certain ladies
wbo held banoing to be sinful, and I bare
said to myself, balf-ehudderiogly : 'Wbat
child can breathe tbat atmosphere for
years, and not grow np with a clouded
spirit, and a fountain of bitterness in his
heart!' :
And so yon mean to say,' Mrs. Andrews
spoke with some aapiraoy of manner, 'that
dancing makes people better! Is, in fact,
a means of grace 1"
'No.- a say do such thing.
'Tbea what do too mean to say? I
draw tbe only conclusion I can make.'
One may grow better or worse irom
dancing,' said tbe lady. 'All will depend on
tbe spirit in which the recreation it indulg
ed. in lteely tbe aot it innocent.'
Mrs. Andrews shook ber head
'la wbat does its sin consist 1'
'It is an idle waste of time.
Can yoa say nothing more of it I'
'I coold, tot delicacy keeps me silent.'
Did you ever dunce?' .
Me? What a question 1 Nol'
'I .have danced often. And, let me tay,
that your inferenoe on the soore of indeli

'Why, everybody admits that.'
'Not by any means
'If tbe descriptiunr of tome of the mid
night balls and assemblies tbat I bars

then nothing could be more indelicate,
notbmg more injurious to tbe young and
innocent
'All good things beoome evil in their
perverseoest eaid the lady. 'And I will
readily agree with you, that dancing
perverted, and its use, as a mesne of sooial
recreation, -tno-t sadly changed into what
is injurious. The same may be said of
cborch going. Let me prove what I say,
tbat even church going -may become

"After a slight pause, to collect her
thoughts, the lady eaid: ;
k 'There has been a protracted meeting in
Mr. B 's church ;
I know it. It was a blessed time
Did yon see Mrs. Eldridge there?'
'No. She's too worldly-minded for

Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of
thistles? . Let roe relate wbat I saw and
heard in the family of two ladies during
this protraoted meeting. ? One of those la
dies was Mrs. EMridge I was parsing in
ber neighborhood about four o clock, and
as I owed ber a call, thought tht opportu
nity a good one for returning it. On en
tering, ay ears eanght the blended musio
of a piano, and ohil iren's happy voices.
From the front parlor, through the partly
opened door, a eight, beautiful to tnv eyas,
wae revealed. Mrs. Eldridge was seated
at the iastrament, ber sweet babe asleep
on eee arm, while, with a single band, she
was touching the notes of a familiar air, to
which four children were dancing. A
more ionooent, loving, happy fcroup 1 have
never seen. For nearly tea minatesl gas
ed upon them onobeerved.so interested tbat
I forgot tbe questionable propriety of toy
oonduct, and during that time, not an un
kind word was altered by one of the.obil-
Oren.aor aid anything occur .to msr tbe
harmony of the soeoe. It was a eight on
which angels could have looked, nay, did
look with pleasure; for, whenever hearts
are tuned to good bffeotions, angels are
present. Tbe musio was suspended, and
the dancing ceased, as I presented myself.
The mother greeted me with a happy smile,
and each ot tbe children spoke to ber vim
tor with an air at onoe polite and respect
ful.
' 'I've turned nnree for the afternoon, yon
see,' said Mrs. Eldridge. cheerfully, 'It's
Alioe's day to go oat, and I never like to
trast our little ones with the chambermaid,
who isn't over fond of children. We gen
erally bare a good time oa these eooasiona,
for I give myself np to them entirely.
Aney ve reaa, ana played, and told stor
ies, until tired, and now I've juet bright
ened tnem up, Oody and mind, with i

' And bright and happy they all look
ed.
"Now run np into tbe nursery for a little
wbile, and build block bouses,' said she,
'while I have a little pleasant talk with my
friend. That's good children. And I want
you to be very quiet, for dear little Eddy is
fast asleep, and I n going to lay him m his
crin.'
'Away went tbe children, and I beard no
more oi them for tbe half hour during
which I staid. With the child in her arms,
Mrs. Eldridge went up to her ebamber.and
I went stub ber. As Ebe was laying him in
tbe crib, 1 took from the mantle a small
porcelain figure of a kneeling child, and
was examining it, when ebe turned to me.
ery beautiful,' said 1. 'It is,' she repli
ed. 'We call it our Eddy, saying bit
prayers. 1 here is a history attached to it.
Very early I teach my little ones to say an
evening prayer ; i tneretoro seek to im
plant, in tbe very dawning of thought, an
idea ot Una, and eur dependence on him
for lite and all our blessings, knowing-th
ti amy nxea, mis iaea win ever remain,
and be tbe vessel, - in after years, for tbe
recention of truth flowing down from tbe
great source of all truth. Strangely enough
iny little JvJcy, go sweet in temper as he
was, steadily refused to say bis prayers.
I tried in every way tbat I oould tbiok if
to induce tiioi to kneel with tbe other chil
dren, and repeat a few simple wordt : but
no, bis aversion thereto was unconquera

it. ibere seemed to be a vein in bis obar
aeter tbat argaed no good. One day I saw
tbis kneeling child in a store. With tbe
eight of it came tbe thought of how I might
use it 1 bi-.ufjnt tbe figure, and did not
show it to Eddv until be was aboct going

Tears were in tbe eyes of Mrs. Eldridge
as ebe uttered tbe closing wordt. I felt
that tbe was a true mother, and loved ber
children with a high and holy love. And
now, let me give you a picture tbat strong
If contracts with this. Not far from Mrs
Eldridge, resides a lady, who is remarka
ble for her devotion to tbe church, and, I
am compelled to say, want of charity tow
ards all wbo happen to differ with her
more particularly, if tbe difference invulves
otiuron matters. It was after sundown
i mill being in tbe neighborhood, I erabrac

mging tbe bell, 1 neard, immediately, a

passage accompanied by children's voices.

fore the door was opened, for each of tbe
four children, wishing to perform tbe of
fiue, each resisted tbe others attempts to
admit the visitor. Angry exclamations,
rode outcries, ill names, and struggles for
tbs advantage continued, until tbe ecok,
attracted from tbe kitchen by the noise, ar
rived at tbe teene of contention, and, after
jerking the children so rougbly as to set
tbe two youngest crying, swung n open,
nd I entered. On gaming tbe parlor.
I acked fur tbe mother of these chil
dren. "She ten. t at home said the cook.
"She's gnne to oburcbtaid tbe oldest A
children.
"I wish she'd stay at home remarked
tbe cook in a very disrespectful way, and
with a manner tbat showed ber to be much
fretted in bar mind. 'It's Mary's day ont,
and she knows I ean't do anything, with
the children. Such children I never saw 1
Tbey don't mind a word you say, and
quarrel so among themselree,tbat it makes
me sick to bear tbetn
'At this moment a headless doll struck
against tbe side of my neck. It had
been tbrswn by one child at another; mis
sing her aim, ebe gave me tbe benefit of
ber evil intention. - At this, cook net all
patience, aDd seising tbe offending little
one, boxed ber soundly before I oould in
terfere. - The language used by tbat obild,
as she escaped from the cook's bands, was
shocking. 1 1 made my flesh ertgp 1
"Did I understand you to say tbat your
mother had gone to church?' I asked of
tbe oldest child.
Yes, ma'am was answered, 'She's
been every day this week. There's a pro
tracted meeting.
"Give me tbat book!' screamed a child,
st tbis moment. Glancing across tbe room,
I saw two of the little ooee contending for
possession of a large family Bible, wbicb
lay upon a small table.' Before I could
reach them, for I started forward, an im
pulse of tbe moment, tbe table was thrown
over, tbe marble top broken, and the cover
torn from tbe eaered volume.'
The face of Mrs Andrews became in
etantly of a deep crimson. Not seeming to
notice true, ber trieod continued
'As tbe table fell, it came within an inch
of striking another child on tbe bead, wbo
bad seated himself on the floor; ' Had in
done so, a fractured skull, perhaps in.

While! was smoking, and thinking, a
young Udy, Miss Dooley, daughter of Pe
leg Dooley, tbe most wealthy and influent
tial citixen of C .passed my doer. A
bright idea struck me immediately. My
father was ao old friend of Mr. Dooley,
aod that gentleman bed taken some inter
est in me on that acoount, and I bad been
invited to his house eevsral times, where I
bad met tbe daughter.' Now 1 do not
think I ebould ever have caied to marry
Miss Dooley had she not been Pelee Doo-

to boast of, she bad noue of those winning
ways about ber that eome women bave
tbat sweet little creature that yon. my dear
young gentleman, bave set yonr eyes npon,
for instance.
Well. Dr. Pollinger was to deliver a
lecture on Keats, tbe poet, before tbe Lit
erary Association of C , that very night
and I thought I could not do better than
to wait npon Miss Dooley to the lecture.
for ' I must make a beginning, and I
thought tbe sooner I did it tbe bettor, if I
ished to sueoeed, for young ladies with
rich fathers do not generally bave to wail

tbougb tbey may be. .
1 wae just on tbe pop. Miss Dooley
would be delighted with my company so
she said, and her eyes attested the truth of
the assertion. Aod just as we walked out
of the house, we met Snnbb coming in. and
I guessed what be wanted when be turned
away with a very disconsolate air and
walked nut of the yard.
Poor fellow I bow I felt for him ; for
Snubb was a poet and wore long hair and
Byron oollars, and a poet, you know, is a
very sensible plant; and nothing could
bave wounded bis feelings more than to
know tbat tba - one npon whom be bad
lavished his affections should prove false to
bim
- However, as I am naturally selfish. I
did not entertain those feelings for any
length of time, for I bad Miss Dooley to
entertain, and I t eared that if 1 allowed
myself to pity Snnbb, I might be foolish or
generous enongb to withdraw myself from
the lists, and that, tboogb not in love, be
ing a business man, and keeping an eye
ent for the mam chance, I had no intention
81 doing. ... -
As tbe leoture was tbe maiden effort of
Dr, Pollinger, and as it must bave been a
great effort for . bim to write it. and as it
proved qu.te an effort for me to listen to it.
I will not pot yon to the trouble of mak
ing an effort to read it ; and, besides, it bas
notbmg to do with tbis story
Vrben Miss Dooley and I returned from
the lecture we went a round about wsy

Snubb was left out in tbe cold.
But aboot this time my father was isk-
en sick, and I went borne, leaving Miss
Dooley with tbe promiee of writing to her
npon every opportunity.
1 was bappy to learn tbat my father was
much better when I arrived ; but as I bad
nothing to do in C , I thought I would

Ned was one of my most intimatefriendt.

1 sealed them, and posted tbem at tbe
same time, and then returned to Sue. wbo
bad been thinking, of the wedding, and
bad new ideas to impart to me npon the
eubjoct.
I returned to C , after having been
away four weeks. At tbe station I met
ooubb, with a new coat, and hie hair cut
wbicb made him look more like a gentle
man than be had before. He emiled
blandly, and bowed, when he saw me, and
as I was very happy with my own tbo'ts,
aod at peace with all tbe world, I emiled
and bowed too. .
Pollinger wae alto at the station, bnt
was in a very great hurry.

Bnt tbe doctor bad wbitked around tbe

a glimpse of somsbody at tbe window ; but
I won Id not stop, for 1 bad something to

I owept ont tbe offlee, wonderme tbe

aod bumming a love eong to myself, think

Snubb called to eee me in the afternoon.
and sat down and chatted quite gayly for
half an hour, something very uoommon
for him to do, especially sioee I had sop
planted for bim in Mias Dooley's affec
tions. I began rather to like, bim ; and
after be bad gone I eonld not help asking
myself if I had done just the right thing
by bim ; trot, to be sure, i coold not have
done otherwise. I waa not to blame if
Jennie liked me best, and I was somewhat
pleased to think Snnbb bsd taken it so cool
for I bad feared tbat he might commit tu
icide.
In the evening I went down to tee Jen

Ifo Necessltx for Lying. "
.. It is painfnl to see a man otherwise se
retpectable unreliable in tbe place where
men meet him most,for it weakens his hold
npon the popular regard, and eannot fail
to depreciate his owo eelf respect. . Yon
mutt feel ashamed, at times, to realise that
your word is not believed, aad to know
that yon have, not a ooatomer in the
world wbo feels at all ears about gstting
work done by yon ontil it ready is done
and in bis hands. Tbe kind "of life yoa
lead must also be an exceedingly uncom
fortable one. No my friend, there is not
tbe elightest necessity for this, and there
is no apoligy for it. It bad a very natural
beginning but yon ongbt to have learned
long ago tbat it was not requisite either to
your work in spite of yonr comfort.
You get your work in epite of your lying,
and nut in consequence ef it. That is tbe
only thing people have against yoa. They
give yoa tbtir custom because yon are a
good workman, aod for nothing elss; and
no man leaves yonr shop for another ex
cept for the reason tbat he eannot depend
upon yonr work. Yon never made a dol
lar or saved a friend, by all the lies yon
have told. Honesty, reliableness, truth
