SIG.\MA. . FINGER MARKS. So'ne time since, a genttlemin residing at Cambridge emp'oyed a m ison to do somte work for him, and amtong othier things, to thin-whiten the walls of one of his chiambers. This thin whieninig i.s almost colorless till dried. The gentlmtan was mneh surprised, on the morning after the chtanmber was finished, to find on the drarrer of his bureau, standinig in thu room, white finger-marks. Openinig the drawer, he found the samue marks on the articles in it, and also otn a pocket-book. An examinaition re veaed the same finger-marks on the contents of the wallet, proving conclusively that thme manson, witht his wet hands, had opened the drawer, searched the wallet, which contained no mtoney, ad then closed the drawer, without one think-' ing that any' one would ever know it. The thiwhitenmng, which chanced to be on his hand, did not show at first, atnd he probably had no idea that twelve htours' drying would reveal his attemipt at depredation. As the job was eon ,el.,4 on the arftcrno,,n the,1r.,wr wea opnenitcd. the man did not come agrain and to this day dues noL know- that his acts are known -to hi6 emplover. Children, beware of evil thoughts and de eds They have sill fing. r marks'which will be reveal ed at some t:me. If you disobey your parents, to tell a filsehood, or take what is not your own, you mako sad finger-uarks on your char. eacer. And so it is with iny and all sin. It defiles the character. It betrays those who eiegage in it by. thermrkait mnkes onl them. These marks may be lnostft not quite, color. less at firit. But even if they should not be seen during any of your days; on eartli-whieb is iot at all likely-yet there irs t day coming in) which all finger-marks or in-stains on the chiracter " will be made narilest."
