" Wantod, aboy, aged fourtten years; iuquire within." Joe Fletcher thought this card had been hung in Dr. Kemp's ollice window for him. "If it didn't say fnurteen years, I might get tbe place!" he assured himself as hu stood hesitating outside tlie iron gate. His ruother, recognizing that the f atal disease, consumption, was fast sap ping her vitality, had iDformed him that he would have to come out of school and try to flnd work. " I'm not as strong this spring, Joe, and my sew ing goes on slowly," she had said, etruggling to keep the tears back that would admit to Joe her alarm aud dan ger. "All right. mother," he responded cheerfully, Fred Bailey's only ten, aud he earns one dollar a week, and l'm twelve!" with assurance that the two added years ought to favor an in crease of wages. And so the next day Joe weut in eearch of work; and we find him gaz iug at the card referred to. Joe uu latched the gate and timidly raug the ollice bell. A dignilied, stern-faced, stern-voiced ruan anBWcred the call. " Well, what will you have?" he asked, scrutinizing the small boy before him. His voice was not encouraging but Joe answered, maniuny: worK. sir." pointing at the advertisement in the window. " Maybe you knew I was coming and put it there bo I'd see it," he added, half question ingly, quite contident that this was the fact. "Guess not, boy; wouldn't have to wear theBe glasBes if I could see so f'arl" removing them from his eyes aud giving them a vigorous cleaniug, and adjusting them again that he might more readily see his applicant. "What made you think I knew?" (in a milder tone). "'Cause mother asked God this morn ing, sir, to direct me to work; aud I wouldn't have known you wauted a boy if you hadn't hung the card in your window, though perhaps he told you to put it there so I'd see it. Maybe you asked him yourself to send you a boy, sir," Joe ventured to suggest, adding aB he saw a look of lurprlie mingled with contempt: " Mother 8ays as how he directs our steps (all we do), sir, if we truBt him." The doctor is an unbeliever, and he replied: "I guess your mother is a crank, isn't she? to think the Al mighty takes notice of such small mat ter8." Joe did not know what a crank was, but the sneer with which the docior spoke suggeated to him the word was disrespectful to his mother, and his face flushed aud his eyes flashed. " My mother is a Christian and a lady, sir," was all he found voice to say. " Are you fourteen?" the doctor questioned, doubtfully. ' No, sir, l'm only twelve; but I can work, sirl I carry all the water for mother, chop the wood and niake the flre. Mother doesn't know as how she can do without me; but we have got to live, sir, and mother can't sew as she once did." " Have you ever driven a horse?" "No, sir." " Let me see your recommenda tion." " I haven't any, sir." " How am I going to know that you are an honest, capable boy, theu?" "I don't know, sir. Ify0u would try me," Joe added eagerly. "No, no, you won't do; I caunot take a boy uuless he has good refor ences." And the doctor went iuto his ollice. leavingjoeto "find the answer to his mother'B prayers elsewhere," as he commented to himself. Joe looked very sorioua; he had not thought of a rccommendation. Did all employers require a recommendation? Aud if ihey did, where was he to get oue? He aud his mother were sirauaers iu the city. Suddenly a smile lighted Joe's troubled face; he stepped back iuto the ollice in the light of it. " Why, Bir, if you call on my mother, .'il Avenue li, she'll recommend mc; she kuows mc better than anybody." The doctor smiled sarcastically. " Most likely she does, but it is not customary to receive credentials from bo interusted a party," with an air that told Joe he had no more time for small boys. " I did waut to htlp mother, 'cause she's eick." Aud Joe's eyes filled with tears that had been in his heart all the moruing, but now gathered to the sur face.and overliowed on his cheeks. Joe's discouragement increased as going from store to Btore, and from of lice to ollice, he found few vacaucies, aud always the discourauing require ment of a recommendatioii. Wearied in body and disheartened by repeated iailure, he turued liiB stups homuward. If some oue would only give him a liial! Must his mother dic btcause there was no one to help? Was there no oue? Had not his mother asked help that very moruing of Ouo who had never failed to come to their relief intimespast? So Joe reasoued. "I'm sure he's heard mother's prayer," he comforted himself; and as the outcome of his rfforts to trust, Joe found him self whistling the tnne of the strain : " Tn soinfl wny orother, Thl LOfd wlll provide." Ah! it was God's way aud God's time hiB mother had taught him to trust and wait for. With increased faith Joe ran up the steps of their poor hnme in happy ex pectation. " Mother!" he called chcerily, as he did not find her in her accustomed place at the window, slitch ing. " Mother, where are you?" A faint answer to his call from his moth er's own roorn preparcd him for the realization of the fear that flashed IntO his mind. Yes, she was IU, She lay on her bed so white aud still that Joe cried out: "Oh, mother, are you so very ill?'' And Joe burst into tears which the brave little heart, over taxed as it was, could control no longer. " I'll bo better in the morn ine," was all she said. She did not tell him she had had a hemorrhage. As his mother lay upon her bed eo pale, and with her cves closed, Joe's failure to flnd employment weighed heavily upon his heart. But Joe had been so well instructed to trust in God's goodntss aud faithfulne9s. that doubt was only known to him as a temptatiou; and young as he was this faith asserted itself and he assured himself God did hear and answer prayer. " He can give me a place without a recommend," he said over aud over again In the morning his faith and cour age were rewarded. He had just given his mother her breakfast, carefully pre pared, though it consisted of two crusts toasted a delicious brovn, softcned with hot water, seasoned with salt; and a cup of weak tea. His faith increased rather than decreased in the knowledge that it was the last mouthful in the houBo. ' Maybe ' his time ' will be this morn ing," he thought, remembering a text often repeated by his mother, " Your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have needof all these things." "Thatmeaus bread and tea, ' these things ' does, 'cause that's our need just now. And maybe it means a doctor for mother, too." Joe had hardly rehearsed their needs in his mind when there came a knock at the door. It was a rare thing for anybody to knock at the Fletchers' door. Not even a grocer; for their supplies were so small Joe carried them himself. " His time's comel " Joe said in his heart, as through the first crack in the door as he opened it he beheld a gentleman with a kind, fatherly face. "Good moruing, my little man." the gentleman said, his face reflecting the smile that lit Joe's in happy, contented assurance. "I'm looking," hecon tinued, " for a little fellow by the name of Joe Fletcher." "Yes, sir, I'm him," Joe an8wered, his face beaming brighter and brighter. " You are the little lad who was looking for employment in Dr. Kemp's ollice. yesterday, are you nol? " " Yes, sir," said Joe, wondering who the good augel might be who had told thil gentleman of his desire to help his mother; surely he had never seen him before. " I had no recommend and no body to give me one, and boI didn't get the place, but but I'm sure he can give me a place without one, cause no thing is too hard or big for him to do. Mother and me likes that text, sir, 'cause it's right hard for us to get things, now she'a sick! And mother says how he does the thing for us we can't do for ourselves, if we trust him I did feel rather bad at first, 'cause I couldn't get a place without a recom mend but mother says that hard feel ing like came 'cause I was trusting in the recommend more than I was in him, and I guess she's right, sir." It was a long, stammered sentence. not one period until Joe stopped. but he was so tuuch iu earnest that Judge Weston listened patiently, and with a great deal of interest. " Well," he said, " I am looking for a boy your age; 1 was in Dr. Kemp's ollice yesterday when you applied. I have a little boy at home, who has never walked." The judge's voice grew husky. " He hasn't any mother, and he gets tired of his good, faithful nurse. The fact is he needs a younger life to brighten his own. An honest, gentle, pure lad, to read with him, and to draw him in his chair in the garden. He is doubly dear to his old father, because of his aflliction. It is because of your unexceptionable recom mendation that I am williug to trust you with bo precious acharge, and with this object in view, I seek you this morning." Joe looked in speechless amazement. Hadn't he just told the gentleman plainly he bad no " recommend " nor anybody to give him one? There must be a misunderstanding, and he was not the boy aftor all. But Judge Weston allayed his fears iu this respect. " My lad," he said, coming cloBe to Joe and laying his hand tenderly upon his shoulder, "a boy who shows such teu der consideration and love for his mother, aB you expressed to Dr. Kemp, in your desire to aid iu her support, and your aBBertion that you carried the water, chupped the wood and made the ure; a boy who assuuies these duties with tender love and mauly cour age, thus sharing her burdens such a boy has the best recommendation that can be offered to prove to me his faith fulness. As soon us your mother's re covery pertnits, call at my ollice, No. 30 Barlow How. If your mother de sires I will call to see her in regard to filling a nosition as housekeeper. Kind Judge Weston senta doctor for Joe's mother that very morning, and nrovisions for many a day. Aud ouo lovely morning in June, he came with his carriage to take them to their new home. There were two memories that fol lowed and iutluenced Joe throughout his life; and through him. others. The first was this persoual experience of faith in God and its Bequel, "The Lord will provide." And the second was his recomnicudatiou, which made for him his starting polnt in life, lead log to houor, usefulness aud Buccess.

BARTLKTT, t'ounsel Orlirln of tho Dollar Mnrk. TliouRandp, hundrtMlB of Uhi'ihuihIs of titucs overy day is made the quccr lit tle sign that we read " dollar.' The 8 crossed by two Htraight lines has its place on tho great ledgors of the city iuillionaire and is shaped painfully by school boys and school girls in their first effort in arilhiuetic. How is it that the conveuient little symbol hns come to mean to everyone " dollar?" Who starte.d the useful nnd simple faBhion? Ooldthwaite's Mayuzine accepts the Spnnish claim to its origin, and says that in the beginning of it the two straight llnes were handsome pillars, the plain little S was a long banner twined gracefully about them, the whole forming the emhlem of the pow crful and proud old Spauish city of Seville. The pillars were the " Pillars of Hercules," the guardinns of the (Stralt of Gibraltar. On the banner were the words, JVc plus ultra, " uo more beyond," because in thoBe days people believed that the Strait of Gib raltar was literally at the " ends of the earth." AVhen Charles V. was about to make some beautiful new mouey he chose for the mint mark this emblcm of Seville, a city that he loved and hon ored. He took the liberty, however, of om'itting the " ie " from the banner, for by this time men knew that it sbould read, " more beyond " Gibraltar Amer ica. The money was carried over the world by the euterprising Spaniards, and became so universally known that the device upon it became the conve nient sigu we now use, recognizable always as representing the coin. As men had no time to draw the pillars and scrolls so otten, the simpler marks have taken their place. The dollar sign is thus the memento of the great king and beautiful old city. ubcrtisements. A Dnngerotis Tlgress. A well known stndent of the habits of wild animals, writing of the stealthy and dangerous character of the mau eating tiger, mentions a case that hap pened a few years ago in tho Nagpur district in India. A tigress had killed so many peojilo that a large reward was offered for hcr destruction. She had recently drngged away a native, but being disturbed had left the body with out devouring it. The shikaris believed that she would return to her prey during the night, if it Was left undisrurbed upon the spot where she had forsaken it. There were no trees, nor any timber suitable for the constmction of a mucharn. It was ac cordingly resolved that fuur deep holes should be dug, forming the corners of a s(piare, the Ixidy l"ing in the center. Four watchers, each with his match lock, took their positions in these holes. Nothing came, and at length the lnoon went down and the night was dark. The men were afraid to go hoiuo through the jungles, and so remained where they were. Some of them fell aaleep. When daylight broke three of the shikaris issued from their positions, but the fourth had ('.isappeared; his holewas empty. A few yards distant his match lock was discovered ljnng upon the ground, and upon the dusty surface were the tracks ol a tiger and the sweeping trace where some large body had been dragged along. Upon following up the track the re mains of the unlucky shikari were dis covered, but tho tigress had disappeared. The ouaning brute was not killed until twelve months afterward, although many persous devoted themselves to the work. m w On being asked what he regarded as the brightest hope for the future, Mr. Gladstone replied: "I should say a maiuleuance of faith in the Invisible. This is the great hope of the future, the mainstay of civilization. And by that I mean a living faith in a personal God. I do not hold with a ' stream of tendency.' After sixty years of public life I hold more strongly than ever this conviction, deepened and strengthened by long experience of the reality and the nearness aud personality of God." itefo Ijublixations.
