Sier! waUh the little feet,
Climbing ever the garden wall,
Bounding through tLe busy street,
Ranging cellar, sited and hall.
Never count the moments lost,
Never mind the time it costs,
Little feet will go astray,
' Ouide them, mother, while yon may.
Mother! watch the little hand
Ticking berries by the way,
Making houses in the aand,
Tossing up the fragrant hay.
Never dare the question ask,
Wby to me this weary ta.-k ?"
These same little hands nay prove
Messengers of light and love.
Mother! watch the little tongue
Prattling eloquent and wild,
What is said, and what is sung
By the happy, Joyous child.
Catch the word whiUt yet unspoken,
Stop the vow before 'tis broken
This same tongue may yet proclaim
Blessings in a Saviour's name.
Mother! watch the little heart
Beating soft and warm for you
Wholesome lessons now impart ;
ICeip, 0 keep that young heart true.
Extricating every weed.
Sow ing good and precious cH
Harvest rich you then may tee.
Ripening for eternity.
Mairprio, dear, put down your work
now and bring in some wood for a good
fire, t is tive o'clock, and father and
Thomas will soou be here, and il is so

M To lo sure, I can.
"Well, now, that's a good girl; you
know Thomas will have to take care of
the horses and feed the slock, and a doz
en other things."
" Oh I I know, and ho will Ikj cold and
hungry and tired."
" es, for he always ay$ he would
rather work hard on the farm, than go to
tow n to market."
" Well, now, let's soo wliat I can do; I
can make up the fire, and bring in the
wood and chit for night, and milk the
cow, and feed Ute lambs. Oh 1 1 do like
to feed the bheep and the lambs, the

"Now kilty (said Maggie), what a
good-for-nothing puss you are; you can
run and get in my way, but you can't
carry a chip or stick." Just then Maggie
tumbled down a few fc ticks, when out
popped a small rat which kitty secured
in an instant Maggie clapped her hands
w ith glee I
"Oh! miss puss, you are good for
something; that old rat would have been
eating old Sukey's corn to night ; now
you shnll have soino nice new milk, so
you shall." And away they ran Mag
gie with her 'wood fur tho fire, and Kitty
to hhow her rat to tho household.
Tho firo was roou fino, the cow milked,
the pigs fed, the sheep and lambs taken
care of, tho oats measured out, tho water

dcrjng what to do next, when she heard
the crack of Thomas' whip, aud his cheer

nimble feet to open tho gate to let them

said Maggio as sho jumped tip and down
to keep warm, and seizing tho mittened

" May be everybody has not daughters
to build them," answered Maggie.
" Guess pot," said father, as he drew
her to his side, and put his arm around
" Sit down Tom, and warm a little,
and then I'll go out with you and help

So they w armed and tnlkod, and all
the time Magje'a eyes were dancing w ith
deli-ht thinking of' the surprise that
awatted her father and brother.
I dou't ee, mother, but I bhall liavo
to hire a boy," said Mr. Harlow, "I am
getting old, I find, and when I've been
out all day, its hard work to feed and rub
down the horses, and tako caro of the

Maggie had nol thought of that, and a

roeo stiffly and prejinred to go out to help
Tom w ith tho chores.
"Now, lather," said Maggie, putting
her two arms round his neck and putting
him down, " let me tell you, you must
not go out once more in this cold night"
" Dut, pussy, I must go aud help your
brother, it will tako him an hour and a
half to do it all, and then ho w ill bo too

" Oh 1 no, it won't, father, only lake

Maggio a kiss.
" And feed tho pigs! T
" Tho pigs aro fed, and tho oats aro iu
tho trough for Ned and Dill; so now,
dear father, let Tom do tho rest."
"Hurrah I hurrah 1" shouted Tom again.
" A perfect Tom boy' our Maggie is."
" A perfect Tom a boy more like,"
answered Maggie with a pouting lip.
But I did not do it all for you. I did it
so that papa would not have to go out in
tho cold any more ; and I wonder if girls
that hare hands and feet can't do good
things just as well as boys, and not be call
ed 4 Tom boys' either."
"You're worth half a dozen boys,
Maggie, and when I sell my rabbit skins,
I'll get you tho prettiest fur tippet in
town, as white as now." Ana away
went Tom whistling as happy as a king,
while Mr. Harlow drew w little daughter
nearer to him and rested his white iiairs
against her qukk beating heart, as she
stood by his sido. He did not speak, but
Maggie knew ho was happy.

And Susio did not stir from her book,
though the fire was low and the evening
cold and 6tormy.
The father came in stiff and wet ; ho
had been hard at work all tho afternoon.
John was with him both wero tired.
But there was no good firo to sit down
by, so John only hung his great coat up
by tho door aud turned round and wont
out to gel wood. The father held his
dripping feet out over tho almost dead
embers, and looked sadly at his daughter.
" Suaie," said he, " it seems to mo you
ought to keep up better fires such a day
as this. Joliu is really tired, and its hard
for him to work all day aud then have
all these chores to do; and your mother
ought to be helped too."
"I'm sure il won't tako long to bring

" Oh, no, not long, but ho is wet and
cold, and a good firo to como to is com

old now, and ought to be thiukiug about

" I wonder if I don't"
Tho father looked into tho ashes and
said no more. Mother was busy as sho
could be in tho kitchen, fixing things for
supper, and tho weary man and boy milk
ed and fed tho stock, and took care of the
horses, and brought in tho night's wood,
aud an hour liad nearly elapsed ere either

sie, frightened at the idea of missing tho

" I shall not," was the reply, and the
boy's head drooped, and the tears dropped
from his eyes as ho shaded them with his
w eary hand.
'ill's no use for mo ever to try to do

was " spited." Mr. Seannotl was sad
and grieved, and John w as fast learning

A WORD TO BOYS.
Who is respected ! It is the boyi who
couducts himself well, who is honest, dil
ligent, and obedient in all things. It is
tho boy who is making an effort contin
ually to respec t hw father, and to oley
him, whatever ho may direct to be done.
It is the boy who leaves no effort un
tried to improve himself in knowledge and
wisdom every day, who is busy and ac
tivo in eudeavoring to do good acts to
wards others. Show mo a boy who
obeys his arcnls, whois dilligent who
resjsects age, who always has a friendly
disposition, and w ho applies himself dilli
gcntly to gej wisdom, and to do good to
wards others; and, if ho is nol restated
and beloved by every liody, then there is
no such thing as truth in this world.
ltememler this, boys, and you will le ro
upocted by others, aud grow up and bo
come useful men.
Six or scvon hours of every day, men
aro breathing corses; the faeo discharges
expressions; the brain gives up thiuking;
life lias gone; only the animal lies there,
pulsating breathing, snoring helpless as
an infant unnoticed as a statue; all
gone, all vacant, empty, useless. Look
ed at without educated associations, there
is no difference in a man in bed and a
man in a coffin.
And yet, such is tho pow er of the heatt
to redeem animal life, and clothe all rude
and uncommon things with its own loaf
bearing branches, that there is nothing
more exquisite, refined, and pure, and
beautiful than the chandler of tlie house.
