J'ollarJ.in llaipcr'i l'oung People " Old Mrs. Sisnfras." A 8I0RT Konlaors. The air was veiy bweet in the woods. A warm spring ind was blowing,and it seenitd to brinj the sunshine with it irom the bald, ahiuing hillside without, into the damp, anow-spottcd duak of the forest withiii. M she felt it, aamile broke over the swarthy, toil-hardened face of an old woman sitting on a log uuder the treea. " Surnmer i3 comit.g." sho spiid aloud, and as though she weie juite iu 'the habit of talking to lierself. ' Sururner, when for a while there won't be word to chop and lng, and it wou't be so hard to get something to eat. I'vo earued enough to-day," Hhe contluued, looking down fondly into her apron aud aii old baaket ,vhich were filled with roots aftjd blossoms, to keep nie a inonth in siWmer." She poked the thinga in tbe bahket, and a pleasant smeli of fresh eYirth and puu gent roots rose froni thetn. " But I must p," she continued, riaing from the damp Jog on whuh she had been aitting. "Not that aujbody cares whether old Mrs. Sassafras comesor whether she goes oh, no I They're Sill dead long ago but tho boy and niayhe he is dead, too, by this time. Oh, whau a life it is 1" She sank dovsu again and covered her face with her hauds;but the eound of 1resh young voioes, which juat then sounded through the aitillness, tuused her from her painful revev'te. " AVhat luok I" critid one merry voice. "Only a few liverwort blossoms, and a half-dozen sickly Majy-flowers l Beautiful May-baaketa we shall have I But perhaps we can bu y some artificial ones at the onilliner's."' " The girls will git a plenty, I'll wager I" said anotljier. "iiTit we've been everj1 where thiit 1 can tbink of, and nothing deoent ia to be found." Just tlAeu they spied the old woman sutiug ori the mose-covered log, and niade a simultikneous rush for her. " Hull6, Mrs. Sasbafras 1" they cried, with goid-ndtured f amiliai ity. " Got a lot of sissafras, haven't you ? Give us faome, dJj 1 And where can we fiud some Alay-flowers ? Do hurry np and tell us I" o'.H iMrs. isasbafnw gave them an indul- geut srnile. bhe lovod every one of them ior tho sake of her own dear boy, for wnem sue nad siaved and denied lierself, only, alas I to see him growing into a wild, bad, uugrateful youtn, who had fiually tewaraeu cer love and patienco by run ning away to aea when he waa seveuteen It bad been fire yeara since then, and she naa Degun to despair o ever seeing him gain ; but out ot a humble and honest heart she lived her daily life, working nara, ana neiping otners whenever she had a chauce: lor the aoul of old Mrs. Sassafras, though it was in a rough aud homely body, was pure gold. The boys ueverset theirdogson her, norsnowballed iier. If one of them had dared to try such a thing it would have gone hard with Lim, for the person of old Mrs. Sassafras was sacred. Aud, as she not only sold -her roots and herbs for a price to the rioh, aud to the doctors aud apothecaries in the Jarge village some five milea distant, but kept a stock coustantly on hand for those who were poor aud needy like herself, whom she was always willing to help, it was no wonaer an tier neigbbors liked ter, and that the boys brightened up the aioment they spied her through the ' chinka " betweeu the trees. Old Margaret Shehan, as "old Mrs. Sa53afraa " really ought to have been called, pulled out from her baaket wlth kindly promptnesa a fresh-dug stick of sassairas ana one oi iiag-root Ior each boy, and then, shaking her sides with auppresjed laughter, she opened her amon. and showed them Mayllowers pinb, aud dewy, and fragrant, till the boys shouted miu uenguu " Where'd you get 'em ?" " Oh, my 1 ain't thev snlendid Y" " You bec the girla won't get any like them." 3 "Oh, hurry upl Where'd you find 'emV" J " Vell," said the kind old ereaturo, re- vucwuB uureeii, ifs agoodways, aud you 11 have to crosa a swamp to get to ihem j but they're there plenty ot them. Dyehee that hill? AVell, just on the otuer side of that hill u Benuett's ougar iiouae, aud beyond the maple-trees, in amoug the plues, about hlf-way down the hill, you'il fiud some, you see I" Margaret Shouan nodded with smiliug aStllraUCa tO thn nmror liltln nrmim . turued elamorously in the directiou that ehe indicated, and, forgetting to thank uer ju uieir exoitement, made oil with a iush aud a Boramble for the " hill " and " Benuett's sugar houae " j and there, to be sure, where the pines were yielding up sweet incen8e to the spriug suu, aud siug. iug solemnly their everlasiing ehant, they fouud even fluer aud dowier blossoms than those y hich they had seen in old "ira.

Then tbey ploked on sllontly for a few moments. "I say," crled llaroid suddonly, ns though afbright thought had struok him. ' Let'a hhng her a Mavbasket tool l'll venturo ia say she hasn't had a May-bas-1 ket for twentv years and moro too if ' she ever did I f' ! " Haien't got anything to put in it but May-flawors, and sho's got a lot of them," said Tfani, doubtfully. "I'l tell you I " exolaimed llaroid after a moment's thought ; " lot's get a big bas ket aud fill it with things for hor I That would please her, I know ; and we'd tell people about it, and they'd all give some thiug, 1 know." " So they would I " they all assented. " We've got flowers enough now," said one of tho boys pretty soon. " Let's go homo and begin to fix old Mrs. Sassafras's M'ty-basket; for it will taka quito a while get it up in good shape." as lt was now growiug ohilly, and tho nadows showed that the sun was on the horizon, the boys conoluded that they would follow Ilarold's suggestion, so thoy went raoing aud tumbling down the hill, and were soon at the foot of it, and ou a well-known road leading to thelr homes. unoe tnere, their new proiect was re- voaled to their elders. who reoeived it with almost unanimous approval. Old Margaret's invariable kinduess, hor neat ness, her iudustry,. her loneliness, her humility all combined to make her gen- orany oeiovea, and "lt tno boys were a-miud to get it up, why, they'd help." So the boys went a head with considor able spirit, and by the next night, which was the time when the May basket was to be presented, they had collected some valuable articles for it to hold. Mr. Siins, tho villaee store-keenar. had presented the basket. " She took care of mv two oirls manv n night when they had the typhoid f ever," he said, " and never charged a cent for doing it. I'm glad enough to do any- j thing for her." And many others felt in , the same way. it was tnought at first that a peck basket would answer their purpose, but as the contributions began to come iu a bushel basket was substituted, and that , was heaped and runningover before night. A dress, a good shawl and anron. a stout pair of rubber boots in which to make . ner way moie comfortablv about the . swamps to collect her simples, groceries I of all sorts, and an envelope coutaining a , sum of monev these were a oart of the contents of the May basket. Oh, it was a I gift to gladden the heart of a much more I ambitious woman than old Mrs. Sassafras. . Xhat night boys and eirls were stealine very quietly about the village streets, and many a quick jerk of a door-bill and i rapid retreat of the ringer, proclaimed j that some mossy basket, full of odorous wild flowers, or perhaps Bomethiug sweeter still to the heart of the average boy and girl, had been huog on the door-knob of a lavonte piaymate ; but the largeat com-. pany of all was gathered near old Marcar- et's humble cottage, on whose door-step, shortly after nine o'clock, the May-basket was depoaited. J. he dear old creature had been sittintr. with her head in her hacds, beside her fire, musing sorrowfully on her loneliness. " Who is there," she thought, to care for old Mrs. Sasafrasl To be sure, they've kiud words for me, but if I should tlie to-morrow, they would say only ' The pity I' and go their waya. There's nobody to diop a tear nor even a flower ou her grave ; aud the boy I the boy may be at the bottom of the sea by this time 1" At this point in old Margaret's monrn ful refleotions, she henrd a knock that might well have awakened the Stven Sleepers and she hurried to the door. A candle flartd in the hand she held abovo her head, while she kept the otber above her eyes to shade them as she peered out into the darknesa. Not seeing auybody she was about to retire, with a half-im-patient thought of the mischievous boys who would call a tired old woman to her door for nothing, when her eye caught an imposiog white placard, black-lettered, ou top of the basket. She held her caudle down to it and read : "A May-basket for Mrs. Sassafras, with her Neighbora' Love." "Ifs the boys, bleaa'eml" said old Mrs. Sasaafraa with a happy grin, forget ting all her doltful thoughts of a few mo meuts before, aud she began to drag her present iu. She was turning over its contents with a pleased and bewildered expresaion upon her face, aud with all sorts of murmured ejaculatipns of love aud gratitnde upon her lips, when she heard another knock, and again flew to the door. " What can it be ?" she said. " Two callers on a poor, louely old lady like me in one night I It never rains but it pours." She opened the door, and the light fell full on the figure of a tall, bronzad young man. He stepped toward her, and she uet tho candle down, as she looked with pathetic, quivering eagerness into his face. Then she gave a cry of joy, and fell into his open arms. " Mother, inother I" he said, while tears couraed down his tanned and weather beaten face. " l've been a bad, ungrate ful boy ; but l'm doing well, mother, now, and l've come back to livo with you, and take care of you. Dou't cry, mother, your boy loves you ; he's come back to settle down and atay with you I" Ah I that was a happy night in old Mrs. Saaaalras' little cottage, andhow ashamed she felt that she had had such hard thoughts of the world I The next day some of the boys met their old frieud, and they couldu't resiat saying, as she greeted them with a brigbt sniile: "IIow did you like the basket, Mrs. Sassufras V" "Oh, boysl" she oried, "you 'raoat broke my heart with your kinduess ; ju deed you did. But the beat of it was, your baaket brought my son following right along after it my boy that's been gone so many years." Kate Upron Clarke, in Chrisiian Union.

The physi cian who said "his patient could have been eaved had he not poisoned his sys tem with tobacco," told a great trutb, aud it may apply in more waya than one.

He may pasa though the rival apparently as unmoved as a otone, and even laugu and jeer at what at firBtwas serious matterwith him. There would be to me some relief, but for the f act that ministers and meiubers aauc tion by their own practice thia evil. A whcle year waa passed upon a chargo where faithful work was doue atonepoiut, where the class leader and superintendent of the Sunday-school both iudulged in the almost constant use of tobacco, tollowing the practice of a former pastor. This may not have been the most potent hin drance, but such were the facts, that not a soul was couverted duriug the year. My observation is this, without an ezceptiou, that where the leading men indulge in the use of tobacco it is about useless to try to have a revival of God's work. If bouIs are converted, they aoon dwindle into com paratively nothing. L believe that God uot ouly wanta his people to have cleau hearta, but cleau mouihs as well. I have known men to be couverted on charges where I have beeu pastor, that before or soon after, gave up the tobacco, aud were soou men ot great power iu the church and in the world: others I have kuown tqually clear in their conversion, that comuieuced to trouble about their tobacco, and fiually held on to the same, and iu a little time were either backalidden or of little uae in the cnurch or commuuity where they lived. Jesus says, " If auy man will come after me, let lnu deuy hiuibelf and take uu his crois and follow me." Think of Pnul, or xeier, or donn, or desus uslng tobacco j or think of auy of them caliinp it a filthy habit, aud they were sorry ior it j" aud then adding they cuuld uot break olf irom tne Bame, tnough it should poisou scores.ot young men around them. Our great state boasts of her wealth. lt has always been so, but the evil ih this : It haa acoumulated in the pockets of the young men, aud ihey aeek an ontlet through their mouth, to the deatruction of both soul and body.
