A Young Man Banning in Debt.
A young man running in debt is a painful
flight. The disposition to do this is the
forerunner an 1 exponent of all evil. Apos
tolic authority says : ''The love of money is
the rxit of all evil" But when a young
man loves money so well as to get it while
knowing he cannot repay, or be willing to
take it before he had honestly earned it,
there is in the most cased, lying behir d this,
fiotne passion so strong a to thus overbear
bis mo ral principles in clamoring for its in
dulgence. Pleasure, especially unlawful
pleasure, is a perilous and exhaustive thing,
lawful, necessary, and healthful pleasure,
like the pure mountain air, and the gashing
waters oi the mountain spring, has been
ma'le accessible by our Creator, at compara
tively little trouble and expense. Any in
dulgence may be known as unlawful when it
ran be reached only by running in debt.
The highway of fin is an expensive road to
travel. The fare, the charges are all high.
And they have to be paid twice over, not
only in currency, bat also in something more
precious than gold, quarried from the depths
and nprings of our being. No person ever
traveled on that highway so attractive in
prospect, without becoming bankrupt, and
pawning hii own peace and lite long before
lie got to the end of hi. journey.
Whenever a youtig man of moderate sala
ary, is seen always cramped for money, and
ready to borrow of his friends, be i.s surely
on the downward grade of respectability.
Willingness to run in debt is itself a great
mcc. Itisc.used by the wish to gratify
the unlawf .1 craving lying behind, as yet
perlia uiidi.sclosed to the eyes of the world.
Experienced men really judge what this
want nt' money indicates ; and however fair
jour character may seem in other repects,
they will Lc Mtti.-tied from this alone, that
there is some hidden taint and Unsoundness.
However small your income, alway live
within your means. There is less unhappi
tiess in doing without necessary things than
there is in the consciousness of being in debt.
Herodotus says, that among the ancient
IVrnians, "To tell a lie is considered by them
the gnatest disgrace ; next to that to be in
debt ; atid this for many reasons, but espe
cially because they think that one who runs
in debt tnuit, of necessity, tell lies." Does
not your experience, your consciousness, tell
you this is true?
Always keep an unpent and unpawned
dime in the bottom of your pocket Its
touch will alwys be invigorating ; and with
tilUinanic power, send through your soul,
an energy making you carry a countenance
flushed with honorable frank uess. This situ
pie dime is invaluable, as the symbol of
manly independence. The consciousness ot
debt, in ayoung man, begets incipient mean
ness of chaiaeter, and, when continued, de
velops this into a confirmed habit, tainting
the whole nature. A man yet in his prime,
who had aeuniulatei a fortune of two mil
lions by honest industry, said, "I began
wiih a determination to keep within my
wurei. Whcngettingonly twenty fivecents
day, I always saved something." This,
principle has carried him, and will carry you.

when yon were a girl you were engaged to

"Well, if I ever did see such girls sn my

pestiferous critters as yon are I When I
was young, girls was different: they minded
their business and didn't go sailing around
with a lot of beaux, getting tbeir heads fill

any of their affairs. Pretty mess I'd have
got into if I bad. When they offered to
tell me anything of their own accord, I kept
niy mouth shut and listened. Everything
is difierent now-a-days; young folks have
no respect for their elders. But as I see I
am not goiog to bare any peace, till I tell
you. why jist listen, and don't let me hear a
word out of your months till I get through."
"That's right, Aunt Sally,go right ahead,
do, and we will keep perfectly still."
"Well, you. see, when I was about seven
teen years old, I was Jiving in Utica, in the
State of New York. Though I say it my

"Well, as I said, he came up to me and

"Goodness, gracious, no, Aunt Sally.
Tell us bow you felt. Didn't you feel good,
and what did he do next?"
'"Oh, such torments as you are ! I was
like any other girl, and pretty soon I pretend
ed to be mad about it, though I wasn't mad
a bit. You must know that the bouse
where I lived was on one of the back street.
of the town. There were gh'ss dxrs in the
parlor, which opened riglitover the street,
and no balcony or anything of the kind in
front of the bouse. As it was in the sum

shutters -just drawn to. I stepped back a

him ? Did it hurt him much?"
"Well, if I mast I must. He fell head
first, and as he was going I caught him by
the legs of bis trowsers. I held , on for a
minute and tried to pull him back, but his
suspenders gave way, and the poor young
man fell clear out of his pantaloons into a
whole parcel of ladies and gentlemen pass

"But, Aunt Sally, what became of him?
Did you ever sec biin again?"
'"No, the moment he touched the ground
he got up and left that place in a hurry. I
tell you it was a sight to be remembered to
see how that man did run. Father happen
ed to be coming up the street at the time,
and he said he never saw anything to equal
it in his whole life. I heard others say that
he did the fastest running ever known in
that part of the country, and that he never
stopped or looked until he was two miles
out of town. He sent tue a note a few days
afterward saying tbat the engagement must
be broken off, as he could never look me in
the face after what had happened. He went
out West, and I believe he is preaching out
in Illinois. But he never married. He
was very modest, and I suppose was so bad
ly frightened that he never dared to trust
himself near a woman again. That, girls,
is the reason I never married. I felt very
Dad about it for a long time, for be was a
real good man, and I always thought to my
self that we .should always have been happy
if his suspenders hadn't given way."
Ftjn and Poverty. Poverty rnns strong
ly to fun. ; A man is never so full of jokes
as when he is reduced, to one shirt and two
potatoes. Wealth is taciturn and fretful.
Stock brokers would no sooner indulge in a
hearty laugh than they would lend money
on a 'second mortgage.' Nature is a great
believer in compensations. Those to whom
she sends wealth she saddles with lawsuits
and dyspepsia. The poor never indulge in
a wookcock, bat then they have a style of
appetite that converts a number three mack
erel intd a salmon, and tbat is quite as well.
On Bleeping.
There are thousands of busy people who
die every year for want of sleep. It may be
that too much sleep injures some ; but in
an excitable people, and in our intense bus
iness habits there is far more mischief for
the want of sleep than from too much of it.
Sleeplessness becomes a disease. It is the
precursor of insanity. When it does not
reach to that sad result, it is still fall of per
il, as well as suffering. Thousands of men
have been indebted for bad bargains, tor lack
of courage, lor ineffectiveness, to doss of
It is curious that all the popular poetical
representations of sleeping and waking, are
the reverse of truth. We speak of sleep as
the image of death, and of our waking
hours as the image of life. But all activity
is the result of some form of decomposition
in the body. Every thought, still more, ev
ery emotion, every volition wastes some part
of the nervous substance, precisely as flame
is produced by wasting the fuel. It is death
to Kome part of the physical substance, that
produces the phenomena of intelligent and
voluntary life. .
On the other hand sleep is not like death ;
for it is the period in which the waste of
the system ceases, or rs reduced to its mini
mum. Sleep repairs the wastes which wak
ing hours have made. It rebuilds the sys
tem. The night is the repair shop ot the
body. Every part of the system is silently
overhauled, and all the organs, tissues, and
substances are replenished. " Waking con
sumes, sleep replaces;, waking exhausts,
sleep repairs ; waking is death, sleep is life.
The man who sleeps little, repairs little ;
if he sleeps poorly, he repairs poorly. If
he nsce up in the day less than he accumu
lates at night, he will gain in health and
vigor. If be uses up all he gains at night,
he will just hold his own. ' If he loses more
by day than he gathers at night he will lose.
And it this last process be long continued,
he must succomb. ' A man who would be a
good worker, must see to it that he is a good
sleeper. Human life is like a mill ; some
times the stream is so copious that one need
not care but little about the supply. Now,
often, the stream that turns the mill needs
to be economized. A dam is built to bold a
larger supply. The mill runs ths pond pret
ty low through the day, but by shutting
down the gate, the night refills the pond,
and the wheels go merrilly around again the
next d iy. Once in a while, when spring
rains are copious and freshets overflow, the
mill may run night and day ; but this is rare.
Ordinarily the ruiil should run by day. and
the pond till up by night
A man has as much force in him as he has
provided for by sleep. The quality of action,
e-pecially mental activity, depends upon the
quality of sleep. If day-time is the loom in
which men weave, their purposes, night is
the time when the threads are laid in and
the filling prepared.
Meu need on an average eight hours of
sleep a day,or one-third of tbeir whole time.
A man of lymphatic temperament may re
quire nine. A nervous temperament may
require but seven, or six, and instances have
been known in which four hours have been
enough. Tbe reason is plain. A lymphatic
man is sluggish in all his functions. He
moves slowly, thinks slowly, digests slowly,
and sleeps slowly ; that is, all tbe restorative
acts of bis system goon slowly, in analogy
With his temperament. But a nervous man
acts quickly io everything, by night or day.
When awake, he does more in an hour than
a sluggish man in two hours; and so in bis
sleep. He sleeps faster, and his system
nimbly repairs in six hours what it would
take another one eight hours to perform.
Every man must Eleep according to his
temperament. But eight hours is the av
erage. If one requires a little more or a lit
tle less, he will find it out himself. Who.
ever by work, pleasure, sorrow, or by any
ether cause, is regularly diminishing his
sleep, is destroying his life. A man may
hold out for a time, but Nature keeps close
accounts, and no man can dodge her settle
ments. We have impoverished railroads
that could not keep tbe track in order, nor
spare the engines to be thoroughly repaired.
Every year track and equipment deteriorat
ed. By and by comes a crash, and the road
is in a heap of confusion and destruction.
So it is with men. They cannot spare time
to sleep enough.' Tbey slowly run behind.
Symptoms ot general waste appear. Prema
ture wrinkles, weak eyes, depression of spir
its, failure of digestion, feebleness in the
morning, and overwhelming melancholy
these and other signs show a general dilapi
dation. If. now, sudden calamity causes an
extraordinary pressure, they go down under
it. They have no resources to draw upon.
Thev have been living up to the verge of
tbeir whole vitality every day.
There is a great deal of intemperance be
sides that of tobacco, opium, or brandy.
Men are dissipated, to overtax their system
all day and under sleep every night. Some
men are dissipated by physical stimulents,
and some by social, and some by profession
al and commercial. But a man who dies of
delirium tremens is no more a drunkard and
a suicide than the lawyer, the minister, or
the merchant that works excessively all day,
and sleeps but little at night. Henry ' Ward
A major in the United States army was
crossing from England in one of the Cunard
steamers, when one afternoon a' band on
deck played "Yankee Doodle." A gruff
Englishman who stood by inquired whether
that was the tune tbe old cow died of.' "Not
at all," retorted the major, "that's the tune
the old bull died of."

Origin of Beefsteak.
The discovery of the chief sources of hu
man enjoyment has all been attributed to
some fabulous origin in the anoient world.
The story of that important feature of din
ner, the beefsteak, was thus given in the
middle ages: Lucius Plaucus, a Roman of
rank, was ordered by the Emperor Trajanj
for some offense to act as one of the menial
Baorificers to Jupiter. He resisted but was
at length dragged to the altari There the
fragments of the victim were laid upon the
fire, and the nnfortunate Senator was com
pelled to burn them. In the process of
roasting, one of the slices slipped off the
coals, and was caught by Plaucus in its
fall. It burned his fingers and he instinct
ively thrust them into his mouth. In that
moment be had made the grand discovery
that the taste of a slice thus carbonated was
beyond all the old sodden cookery of Rome.
A new expedient to save his dignity was
suggested, aod he at once evinced bis obe
dience to the emperor, by seeming to go
through the excercises with due regularity,
and his qcorn of the employment by making
the whole ceremony a matter of appetite.
He swallowed every slice, deluded Trajan,
defrauded Jupiter, and invented the beef
steak. Such a discovery could not be long
concealed ; the sacrifices began to disappear
with a rapidity and satisfaction to the par
ties too extraordinary to bo unnoticed. The
priests of Jupiter adopted the practice with
delight, and the King of Olympus must
have been soon starved if he depended on
any share of the good things of Rome.
Uncls John's Bear Stobt. A Jewish
missionary was once making inquires in
Russia about the method of catching bears
in that country. Ilia informant told him
that, to entrap these formidable and raven
ous creatures, a pit was dug several feet
deep ; and after covering it over with turf,
leavss, etc., some food was placed on the
top. The bears if tempted by the bait,
easily fell into the snare. "But," he add
ed, "if four or five happen to get in to
gether, they all manage to get out again."
"How is tbat?" asked the missionary.
"They form a sort of ladder by stepping
on each other's shoulders, and thus make
their escape."
"but how does the bottom one get out?"
asked the missionary.
"Ah 1 these bears, though not possessing
a mind and soul such as God hareridowed
us with, yet they can feel gratitude ; and
they won't forget the one who has been the
chief means of procuring their liberty.
Scampering on, they tctch a branch ot a
tree, which they let down to their poor
brother, euabling him speedily to join them
in tbe freedom in which they rejoice."
Sensible bears, we should say, and a great
deal better than seme men we hear about,
who never help anybody but themselves.
That Old Fashioned Mother. One
in all the world, the law of whose law is
love ; one who is the divinity of our infancy.
and the sacred presence in the shrine of our
first earthly idolitry; one whose heart is far
below tbe frosts that gather on her brow;
one to whom we never grow old, but, in the
plumed troupe, or in the grave jouicil are
children still ; one who welcomed us going,
and never forgets us never. And when in
some closet, some drawer, some corner, she
finds a garment or a toy that once was ours,
how does she weep as she thinks we may
be suffering or sad ? Does the battle of life
drive tbe wanderer to the door of the old
homestead at last? Her hand is upon his
shoulder, her dim and fading eyes are kin
died with something of "the light of other
days," as she gazes upon his worn and troub
led face. "Be of stout heart, my son 1 No
harm can reach you here." But sometimes
that arm chair is set back against the wall,
tbe corner is vacant, and they seek the dear
old occupant in the graveyard.
The Night Lamp. There are many fam
ilies who use nigth lamps, and through ina
bility to provide gas have been in the habit
of burning kerosene oil, a very good thing
when nroDerly used. A few words on the
snbiect of its use at night may prove inter
esting to the general reader. Wh the
light of the kerosene oil lamp ia turned down
low, the combustion is not perfect, and the
atmosphere of the room becomes vitiated by
the unconsumed oil vapors, by the gas pro
duced by combustion, and also legitimate
particles of smoks are thrown off, to be tak
en into tbe lungs of tbe occupants. Air
thus poisoned is deadly in its effects,and the
wonder is that the people are not Immedi
ately and fatally injured by breathing it.
Its consequences are the mysterious head
aches, irritation of throat and lungs, dizzi
ness and nausea.
A Heavy Dose. A surgeon had occa
sion, lately, to prescribe a couple of pills for

pressed his surprise on learning that the de

ed Pa's better-half if she hadreally given
