Give me a man with an aiu, Whatever that aim may be. Whether it's wealth or whether it's fame, It matters not to me. Let him walk in the path of right And keep his aim in sight, And work and pray b" faith always With his eye on the glittering height. Give me a man who says, "I will do something well, And make the fleetini day A story of labor tell." Though the aim he has be small, It is better than none at all ; With something to do all the year thro', He will not stumble or fall. But Satan weaves a enare For the feet of those who Btray, Who never have a thought or a cara Where the path may lead them away. The man who has no aim, Not only leaves no name When this life is done, but ten to ona He leaves a record of shame. Give me a man whore heart Is filled with ambition's flr ; Who sets his mark iu the start, Ar.i keeps moving it higher and higher. Better to die in the strife, The bands with labor rife, - Thau to glide wp the tide in an Idle dretm, And live a purposeless life. Better to strive and climb . . Aud never reach the goal, Than to drift along with time An aimless, worthless soul, Ay, better to climb and fall. Or sow, though the yield may be small. Thau to throw away day after day, And never strive at all. V lXiiIit of TL'ei'i'oi" BV Ll.- iUieXKTON. "Whose picture is this, Ada? The face is certainly very handsome : but there is something in the expression that, to me. at least, is quite unpleas ant almost repellant." My cousin took from my hand the photograph that I had been examin ing, looked at it a moment with an ex pression of surprise not mingled with pain, and then turning away her head with a gesture of disgust, threw it among the burning coals in the grate. "I thought that long ago," she said, was destroyed rising hastily, and pacing rapidly up and down the room, as if she were striving to banish, by the motion, some unpleas ant reminiscences. "Strange that it has never been destroyed." It was one of the dreariest days of a Canadian winter ; the air with out was darkened by the fast falling snow, freezing as it fell till it rattled like hail on the windows ; and the wind raging and blowing as it does ! in no other country, had formed 1 great white drifts, that threatened i to exclude entirely the faint light that still struggled through the ice-j Miss Janet Gordon, Harry's aunt, covered panes.

"As this house is closely connect- ed with my story, I will describe it to you. It was a low bricked cot- tfirro t mm din r nnit.fi alone in the a -i - centre of a large garden, with vacant lots behind, on each side, and in! front, too, on the other side of the street; so that we were qnite as much removed from neiuhborlv com- as .panionship as if we were living'-in the country. A small covered porch was in front, with a door opening into our narlor. sittinir and dinino-. room; in one, frontfWg this door, another opened into the kitchen, and another to the right into my bed- room ; a door to the right of the kitchen onened into a small store- room; and back of the kitchen was j vague dissatisfaction w ith the situa-' a small latticed porch, with the wood ; tion in which I was placed, and with j and coal house at one side. Here I j my surroundings. I took myself lived as mistress and maid of all seriously to task, and now, remcm work, for Harry's limited salary : bered covert hints, insinuations, al would not permit us to keep a ser- lusions to ni' former po-ution, half vant : but. hard as I worked, some expressed pitv for the change, many, of happiest hours were passed in that little house.

"One day, when little Alec was about five weeks old, I dismissed the woman whom we had employed for more aahaaaad to confess it to auoth a short time, and resumed my house- er, 1 could not go to Harry and ask hold labors.

"1 think I never felt more content ed and happy than I did that even ing. One great sense of anxiety had just lieen removed.

Still, notwithstanding all j the attention that was paid him and j the constant invitations that he re- ceived, his most frequent visits were j made at our humble home. As time j passed on, the aversion that I felt at j first ceased almost entirely, and I I heo-an to look forward with pleasure . -o to the .time of his coming. He had a. remarkably fine tenor voice and a brilliant performer on the piano, and j as Harry and myself were both ! nassionatelv fond of music, our 1 - 1 V I evenings passed delightfully. He , came almost daily ; at first, only in 1 the evening, when my husband I would be at home : but in a few weeks he came frequently at hours when Harry would be at the store, j At length I was aroused to a knowl- j : edge of the fact that these visits j i nlwavs were followed bv a feelimr of; ; many things, so quietly said and so delicately covered that they had fail- , ed not to know anything, ed at the time to excite my anger or j "Yes.

"After the advent of Aunt Janet, Afr- Tr0.n..;,.'c viotta han'am's lcc-i frequent; but I was soon pained to ! see a groat change in my husband, : The cheerful, hopeful look vanished j from Lis face, and gave place to an expression of tho deepest dejection, j Instead of spending his evenings at J home, as had always been his habit, he remained out late at night, and ; returned sad and despondent, his j sleep was restless and interrupted, : and he looked so haggard and care- j worn that I became anxious about j his health. "Near the last of December, Har- ry's employer determined to tend him to Montreal in charge o a large sum of money, nearly forty thous and dollars. He was to leave on the train at 10 P, M.. and when lie re turned in the evening ho brought ! the money with him. Mr. Tremain ! accompanied liim, and I heard my husbaud say excitedly.
