By the beautiful gate there's en engel that stmds,
And a wreath of >ur blossoms she twines is
her hands ;
For the conquerinjr son! is thst radinnt crown,
Yet she passeth full oft, reaching tenderly down
To the sorrowing spirit that shrinks 'nenth the
rod ;
Aid her touch, quick with healing, uplifts it
to (Jod. *
On her brow floats s halo celestial snd fair,
And silver as moonlx-am* her vestures of air;
There's a light in her eye, but the shadow of
tears
Lingers yet from the sorrow of far swny years,
Aud her song trilleth sweet as she ever doth wait
To unclose to the weary tho Iwnulifut gsts.
Through the sight-shadows falling her accents
I hear.
" Look upward ! sad mortal, the ransom is nssr ;
For the conflict with error, the trlumtih is strong,
The battle is fleeting, the triumph is long;
And a crown I entwine for the warrior with fate
Wlto shall enter as victor the beautiful gate."
And my heart, warm with striving, looks up for
the light
That so goldenly dawning shall break through
the night ;
With my cares, at her music fall softly asleep,
Asd my griefs pause to listes, forgetting to
Weep ;
Nor ! k

j took Alice Warner for his wife, and fan

hurt had been iu the arnty—bad gone in

She bad held hint in her heart through

Albert bad oonto from the army with !

a stout heart, aud a strong pair of bands ;
and bad borrowed no trouble for the fu

when the twain had become man and wife

they had enough to furniah a house com

but Alice thought that they had better ac

cottage which they might, perhaps, in

During her fire years' axparienoe in
school teaching Aliea bail losrnod many
thinga, and having been an orphan from
an early age ahe had made the problem!
of real life one of her chief studies ; and
what she had learned in this latter de
partment served her well in her new
station
In he just tin« man sh« had known him to
bo in other years. Hn was kind to a
fault ; freo-beartad and grnerous ; ready
til answer to the call of friedship; and
prone to pluck the fl«iwers that bloomed
to-day ri-garill«»» of what might be ma
tured to bloom on the morrow
They bad been married hut a few months
when Alico found that her husband wa,
cutting bis garments from day to dav ex
actly according to hia daily supply of
cloth Not a shred waa be like to aaee
up for the cutting of an extra garment
for a rainy day that will oome
'• Albert," she said to blm one evening,
•• do you know we ought to lay npa little
son, -thing
Albert looked op from hia paper, and
waited for hia wife to elucidate
" I thiwk I heard yon loll Mr. Oreao
ongb that yon had no money—that yon
paid ont your lui dollar this vary after
noon
After marriage she found Albert
•' Exactly, my dear ; bqt joa know to
morrow ia pay-day."
" And you hate apent your laat montb'i
earning ?"
"Yes."
A brief ajlence enauod, which Alfred
broke:—
'• Come, Alice—you're got something
on your miod. What la it?"
Aud then Alice, in a smiling way,
went on to tell her husband that they
ought to be laying up something.
Albert imilud in turn, and asked how
such a thing could be done when it coat
all be earned to live.
" You earn three dollars and a half a
day," said Alice.
.. y M "
" George Somers earns only three dol
lars a day."
"Yes."
•( You are right."
" And be lives, and docs not run in
debt." • ■
" But ho is forced to deny himself many
little comforts which wa enjoy ."
" A"d one great comfort which wo
might enjoy we are throwing away."
" How ia that Alice ?"
• Tho comfort of a little sum in bank
whicli we would see growing towtrdt the
answering of future want ?"
Albert could not, for tho life of him,
see how it was to be done; and Alice
feared that 4 lesson of empty words might
be wasted. She knew that his ambition
needed a substantial .prop. Never, of his
own accord, would he commence to save
by Uttlei. lie did not estimate money in
that wav Had some kind of a fairy
dropped into bis hand a five twenty bond j
for fire hundred dollars, ho would have :
put it uwey gladly ; and with cuelj a nest j
egg in the start he might liavo sought to |
add to the store. Hut he could not see
any hop» in a dollar bill, and much Ica»
could he discuvor til« nucleus of a grand;

• l«ert was tin easy prey to the wiles of n
i w ile as loyal aud loving as himself.
| g'*»« her money when site asked for it,
when she thought lie had it to give.
Aud hero let me say that Alico knew
her husband would not run in debt.—
When Albert's purse was empty lie bought
nothing ; aud wltcu if was full be was apt
10 b' 1 )' more than was needed Alice
know all tbia and governed heraelf acoor
dlngly.
" 1 think, said Alice o»c evening, that
I must fix over my old brown oasltmcre
f° r uiuler. 1 should like a new ono but
i I don't suppose you cau afford it "
j Albert look grieved. The idea that be
could not afford hia wife a new dress !
Hut for such a one as she wanted it '
of, would cost twenty-five or thirty dollars I
j lf you want it. get it ! said Albert ent ;
j pbatically. " I will let you have twenty ,

i balance you shall have next month."
; Alice got the thirty dollars, bnt ahe
did not get a new dress. By the outlay
office dollars for now trimmings she
contrived to fir over the brown cashmere
»» *bsit it looked every bit aa good as new.
And so Alice worked. Sometimes for
fif'J ®®t)'». somotimes a dollar ; and some
time* for more, and at the eud of a year,
upon careful reckoning up, she found that
«b® bad n.nn»ge_d to get hold of rather

would sit himself down by a hill of corn.ami
wait to sue the tender blade put forth;
would be wearied and disheartened ; but
he knows if ho plants the tiny send, and
cultivates it as he ought, that the harvest
of golden grain will come at length.
Albert and Alice were married in the
spring of 1800- It waa on an creuiug of
Augunt 1870, that Albert came home out
of surts. Hu bad been notified that he
must leava tho aottage. They muat give
up their pleassiit home and lose the little
■o much
garden they had cultivated with
fondneei tod oare.
"Tha owner wishes to eell," he ex
plained aud be baa ao offer. Ho ask*
two thousand dollars and must have $500
down. *
Aliee'e eyes gleamed with radiant light
ae he epobe.
She bad bean thinking for soma time
'hat ab« must Im« her husband In
the aeeret. It bad began to wear npon
her. And now the time had eome aa
though by providential ioterpoaition
Sbu did not make a scene. She would
not add to the denouement by any by-play,
She simply got up and weut to hor cabi
net, and when ahe came back she brought
a little book in her lined
"Albert,'' anid she, let's you and me all
buy the cottage
Albert looked at her in muaxemont ;
and directly it dashed upon him that there »
was too much solemnity in her look and a
tone for badinage. Honiething that be
had noticed during the past months, came
back to him, and ho trembled with the bo
weight of suspense that fell upon him.
Alico saw and understood At first
the great flood almost overcame her, and I*
she was forced to rest and wipe her eyes,
before sho could proceod. And then she
showed hor book—that she had more than
eight hundred dollars in bank Tho ice
was broken, sho told bow she had saved
up little by little, and bow sho had at
length found herself able to purchase a
fifty dollar bond. And then she told how of
hor unele, in the banking houso, had ta
ken charge of her investment; and how sho
under his management, the interest had
accrued iu amazing volume.
Hut the grand result was not tho chief
thing. Tho chief thing was tho begin- for
uing—was tho jxrtl linlr wiiich had been the
religiously suved until tho second little
could be added to it.
And now, as a result of the wife's °f
careful and tireless working, Albert found
something upon wbioli his ambition could
take a fair »tart. lie never could him
j self, from so small a commencement, liavo
: reared the pile, but with tho structure .

During the year 1871, the total length

half times around the entire globo. The !
increase last year was 7,463 miles. This |

cr in liliuois titan any other State, but |
Massaeliusetts still remains the banner

every 4-8Ü stpiaro mile of territory. The
' cost of the railroads now in actual opera- ;

, the eutiro funded debt, and uearly three ,
times tho entire indemnity payable by a

agreed aa to the kind of proviaion it ia

little money, for a dealiluto old mau is,
indeed, a sorry sight ; yea, save money by
all means. Hut an old man needs just
»hat particular kind of strength which
young men are most apt to waste. Many
» foolish yonng fellow will throw away on
a holiday a certain amount of nervous en
ergy which he will ueyer feci the want of
until he ia seventy, and then how much
bo will want it ! It ia curious, but true,
that a bottle of champagne at twenty will

holds good in regard to health as to money
—''Waste not, want not." It is the
greatest misUke to suppose that violation
of the laws of health can escape its pen
