'That man, will never will realize bow
ill I am, nnt I it's too late,' groaned Mr.
Ward, dismally, as the doctor was shown
in, and he began the skirmish with a
long account1 of his sufferings during the
last twentyffour hours. Dr. rinnock
listened with great concern.
'My deatl air,' he began, as David
paused to tako breath, 'you're a very sick
man tnere can be no doubt or that
I consider ypu the most : dangerous case

'Do you, really, Dootor ?' demanded
David, with his eyes very wide open. .
.'Most undoubtedly. How I can have

the most desperate cases. Alternate tbem

' David stared rather uneasily at the
gray pills and white powders that the
deotor bad left upon his table.
"Jessie,' he said to his wife, 'do dj

angerous.l? ill
, Tut afraid so,' sighed Mrs. Ward.
'Do try and be pnnotual about the modi-
bines,' David, and' perhaps you may over'
come tne penis tbat tbreaten you.
David fell back among his pillows like
log, bis lower jaw unoonsoiously drop
id, and his eyes assumed a fishy, un
comfortable glare As the hop-vine feels
when the sturdy pole on wbioh it has
leaned is suddenly pulled from its cling
log tendrils, so felt .David, with the

withdrawn. ,

'Very you are so deadly pale, and

'But I am not sure but that I am feel
ing a good deal better this morning.'
'Ob, that is quite impossible,' . said
Mrs, nard solemnly. 'You can't be
better. Hare is a gray pill, my love
remember your life depends on your med
icines.' i . .
'I thought I would like a fresh egg
for breakfast, if :'
'Ob, my dear, bow can you talk so unr
feelingly of fresh eggs when your gray
pill is not taken.'

with a good deal of energy for a sick

All thst morning be lay cogitating on
the altered "manners and looks of his

, ' doo't believe I oanoe bo very ill,
after all,' be said, suddenly.
.'Take a white powder, dear,' said Jes
sie, with sorrowful alacrity; 4U is already
three scoends past the regular time.' .
And David swallowed his powder and
(lis disgust together.
Paul Dayton arrived, bright and early,
the' next morning. Somewhat to Jessie's
surprise,0 he took off his boots in the
hall, and crept tip stairs with ostentatious
quietness... L j t ,
1 'What are you ' creeping along like a
big pussy oat for ?' demanded Mr, Ward,
with some asperity. : i v '
'Isn't it time for another white pow

Paul gave a deep groan.
'Inolined to be delerious and violent-
symptoms very bad indeed !'
No more delirious than you are!
roared David, quite forgetting the sub
daed accents of ad invalid. .
- 'I am delighted to bear it,' said Paul,
'lor 1 , want a little serious conversation
wiib you on a very grave topic In case
of the worst happening and we have
every reason, considering your long
sickness and the delicaoy of .your consti
tution to apprehend the worst- ,
David listened breathless. ' '
'In case, I say, . of a sudden relapse
and melancholy consequenoes, it would
be a sad pleasure to us to havo your last
wishes. Where, my dear brother-inslaw,
would you prefer to be buried ?'
. 'Buried I' shrieked David Ward.
'Buried I I've no idea of boing buried
a by where just yet. Get me my clothes
quick, and clear out of the room. I'm
going to drees myself and come down
stairs l! . , ;
, 'But my dear David,, just conbider

And when Dr. Pinnock arrived, with
bis face properly elongated, the very first
person be nut was1 his patient," smoking
a cigar on tbe piazza, with his leet upon
a garden chair, while Jessie eat at his
side hemming ruffles with the most eon-

And although Dr. - Pinnock remained

3ackbitinq. Some one has written:
The longer I live, the more I feel the
importance of adhering to the following
rules, which I have laid down for myself
in relation to suoh matters : 1. To bear
as little as possible what is to the preju
dice of others. 2. To believe nothing
of the kind until I am absolutely forced
to. 3. Never to drink in the spirit of
one who circulates an ill report. 4, Al

kindness wniou is expresaeu luwaru
others. 5. Always to believe if the other
sido were heard very different actions
would be given of the matter.'
Moral Coubaqb Sydney Smith, in
his work on moral philosophy, speaks in
this wise of what men lose for want of a
little moral oourage, or independence of
mind. 'A great deal of talent is lost in
the world for want of a little oourage.
Every day sends to their graves a num

mained In obscurity because their timidity
haB prevented them from making a first
effort ; and who, if they could have been
induced to begin, would in all probability
havo gone great lengths in the career of
fame. The fact is, that to do any thing
in this world worth doing, ' we must not
stand back shivering and thinking of the
