FRAN ,. THE sUOEMAKER. ki
Frank's father and grandfather were ei
weavers, and as he was an only son, they a
thought it a matter of course that Frank hi
should become the same and learn the be
business from his father. And yet Frank co
wanted to become a shoemaker, and gave of
his parents no rest till they had given ti
their consent. I will now tell you why be si
wished so muchb to be a shoemaker. His T
parents could not anderstand it for many a
years.; and when they bad grown old and b
he was able to support them, he cared for ml
them most tenderly as long as they lived, si
and told them also why be had become a o:
shoemaker. When Frank was a little boy, n
he expected to be a weaver like his father. w
He went to school, and like most boys was a
diligent and then again indolent. At home ii
he was not very good, and as his father to
dealt severely with every act of disobe- p
dience, it happened that Frank was often ti
punished. He had but few pleasures; p
often his parents earned bat little; often
their means were hardly dsufficient to boy o
food for the little family, and their cloth- -a
ing at times was very scanty. The lihap q
piest days in Frank's life were when the e
teacher took an excursion with his scholars t
into the country. He looked forward to ii
this time with delight. Sundays also made p
a little change in his dreary life. In the a
forenoon he went to Mass with his parents, i
in the afternoon to Vespers. This he en- ea
joyed very much; but when he returned I
home and had to sit still to learn the long a
lesson his father had given him, and which a
was so hard for him to commit to memory,
he thought the week-days were better than i
Snnday.
Frank was twelve years old when the
teacher one Saturday told his class to
prepare for next Wednesday to take a long a
excursion. At home he was very faithful,
and begged his mother to fix his Sunday
Scl thes as well as possible. All was ready 1
in dne time-but shoes were wanting. I
What could be done! The father said
Frank could go without sboes; and would
not be the only one. Tuesday came. To- i
morrow the excursion was to be. Then
the teacher sent Frank with a note to the
house of a rich gentleman. He rang the I
bell, entered and handed the note, but
had to wait alone in the hall for an an
swer. He look around and saw a table
with several pairs of nice shoes, and a pair
of boots. "Oh," thought Frank, " these
boots! If they were only mine. They
surely would fit !" A servant appeared
with the reply just then nod Frank was
left alone again.
What did he do He took the boots
and hastened into the streets ! When he
found himself in the open air, he hardly
knew what had become of him. His con
science burned like fire and said : " Thou
hast stolen !" Then he looked again at
the boots and thought: "To-morrow I
might wear them-that is all I want them
for. If I carry them back secretly, it will
not be stealing. One day cannot hurt
them much." -
"But if my father should find it out !"
The fearful voice of self-accusation and
eeausing thoughts warred within. When
he had reached home, the first thing was
to hide the boots in the stable. 0, how
restless his sleep was all night ! In every
new dream he saw the boots before him.
Early in the morning Frank hurried to
reach the school-bonse. Before leaving
home, he went to the stable and took the
boots, and after walking a abort distance
he put them on. He entered the school
house well-dressed. All were happy, but
several of them were is their bare feet.
Frank was the only one with boots-and
not happy. Upon the road the boys sang
and jumped, the girls gathered flowers
and made garlands and were fall of joy.
Frank looked with envy upon the cheerful
boys with bare feet, and thought again
and again : "Oh, if it were not for these
boots !"
When one and another boy looked down,
he was frightened and dreaded of being
asked where he had got the nice boots.
At last-at last evening came. Frank
came home all tired out, he took off the
boots before entering the Louse, and
thought; "Oh that I had never seen
them !" But when he looked at them
he noticed with terror, that they were
torn ! They could not be returned-and
if that was impossible-he had stolen I
Borrowfally he went to bed. He could
not pray. The whole night through fear
ful dreams haunted him, and when he
awoke in the morning and heard people
talk, he imagined something wonld be
said In regard to the boots. Byday and
night he was distarbed by the thought t
would come to light. The severity of hi
father the sorrow of his mother, the dis
grace before the people-all stood in the
strongest light before his soul. In this
state of feelings he tbrew the boots into
the water. Several times he was ready to
go to the rich gentleman to confess all to
him. But he did not do it. Whenever he
had to pass his house, he tried to quiet his
concience with good resolations for the
future, but he was not happy. He made
up his mind to become a shoemaker, and
then the first pair of boots he made should
be for the gentleman. Then he would ask
his pardon.
This was the reason why Frank gave his
parents no rest, till they gave their con
sent and took him to a shoemaker to lqrn
that trade. The miater praised FrankTor
his faithfnlness, and he truly deserved it,
for he worked hard. When he was ad
vanced. his first work was to make a pair
of fioe boots. Now the conflict commenc
ed afresh. Should he confess what nobody
knew, and no one accused him of f And
yet he felt that all-seeing eye of God in
his heart. No! he must efface that black
stain. Now he asked God earnestly for
true courage, and with beating heart he
went one night to the gentleman, asked
him to accept the pair of boots he had
made, and deliver him from his guilt. -
The gentleman was greatly sarprised;
he had never heard a word about the mis
sing boots. Frank told all-his sins-his
fears-his weight of care, and how that
on account of these he had become a
shoemaker. The, gentleman accepted the
boots, and was so pleased with Frank's
sincerity that when he had learned his
trade he aeeisted him to begin bnsiness
for himself. Blessing and peace dwelt un
der his roof, and he could provide for his
dear parents in their old age. Frank

The Papar-oney of Japan. p
[From Appleton's Joarnaal. a
The uses of paper in Japan are ludi- se
crously various. It is used in daily life, of
in the drawing-room, the nursery, and the $7
kitchen, in ways that are dark to a for- cil
eigner. A Japanese is never at a loss for Cc
a string, a sheet for a letter, a wrapper, a P(
handkerchief, a towel, or a plaster. In his Ca
bosom isa roll of paper, and what paper pl
can accomplish is known only to the native
of Japan. When little Yezaburo or Kin- w
taro eouts his finger, a bandage is applied w
and tears are dried with the same article. fa
The exquisitely-dressed young lady takes ci
a roll of paper from her girdle, and lo I it bi
becomes a handkerchief. Pass into the cl
street on a rainy day in Yeddo, and you-r a
eee for miles a panorama of moving disks t1
of paper. Both umbrellas and parasols are "
made of paper, and a snit of oiled and t;
water-proof clothes, hat, coat, trousers, b
and shoes, may be bought almost anywhere al
in Japan. Boxds, pipe-cases, twnlae, dishes, ft
tea-trays, carpets, chimneys, roasting- J
pass for firing tea, windows, doors, parti- e
tions, and screens, are everywhere made of G
paper. fi
The paneled walls of houses are made d
of hardened paper-pulp. Old Japanese v
armor is largely made of compressed lao- c
quered paper. Perhaps Europeans adopt a
ed the custom of papering the walls of ti
their houses from these people. The dwel- t
lingsof the better classes of the Japanese a
people are always papered, though the J
sheets used are not over a foot or eighteen e
inches square. They are polished, silver- e
ed, gilded, colored, or printed, with birds, t
flowers, animals, and many tasteful de f
signs. In looking over a paper-dealer's e
sample book in Yeddo, one rarely sees a v
"loud" or uncouth pattern, always except- t
ing that of the dragon, in which the nor- d
mal Japanese doth so delight. I
The crowning utility of this fabric is its
o use as money. The employment of paper t
as money is fondly believed to be the in
vention of modern civilized nations. It t
was known to the Chinese before the
Christain era. The European alchemists 1
toiled for centuries to transmute lead into
I gold. The Chinese tried paper, and it 1
I became money. The latest results of
- scholarship date the first issue of paper- e
money in China at 119 B- C.. The custom t
a wis imitated at an early age in Japan,
a though the exact date at which the Japan
Sese tried this sort of financiering cannot 1
- be so accurately stated. For centuries, a
a however, paper-money hlas been a common- 1
r place with the Japanese. Until within
e five years ago, every great daimio was
Sallowed to issue paper-money. The tra
1 veler in the interior of Japan still meets I
a with these cnrious relics of the feudal sye- I
tem from which Japan has just emerged.
a I lived for one year in the city of Fakawi,
e in the province of Yechizen, where the
y money used for daily purchases were the
- local issues of the 'IHan," or perfecture of
a Fukawi. These were strips of stiff white
,t or yellow paper, from four to eight inches
I long, and two inches wide. The values of
n these formidable looking cards were one
I[ tenth, one-fifth, and one-balf cent, and one,
*t two, three, four, five, ten, twenty, twenty
five, and fifty cents, respectively. The
" designs engraved upon them were charac
d teristic. The fat and jolly god of riches,
n seated on a throne of rice-bags, was the
is most common figure. Rice is not only the
w staff of life, but the sinews of war, in
-y Japan. It is the standard of value; eal
a. aries are paid in it, estate are appraised in
o its terms, and it is to the "bulle and bears"
ig what gold is to the bovine and ursine
me gentlemen of Wall Street.
:e Nothing else, then, but bags fall of rice
1- would suffice to build a throne for the
at Japanese god of wealth, who does not look
t. at all like Mammon, and is as fat as two or
ad three of Mr. Barnna's fleshly immensities
ag rolled into one. The treasure-ship in the
ra distance, coming honreward, was another
y. favorite vignette. "When my ship comes
al in" is as a common a saying among the
in Japanese as it is with us. The "pile" of
see gold, oval coins, called ko-bans, which
every Japanese hopes to " raise" before he
n, dies, and of warehouses by wharves filled
3g with unloading ships, also helped to make
;s. the people believe that stamped paper was
ik real money. The local issues of one of the
he "Hans," or prefectures, adjoining that of
ad Fakawi, were but an inch wide and sir
an inches long. In another, they were three
m inches wide and four long.
re When the mikado was reinstated into
ad his ancient power at Yeddo, the imperial
a 1 government, feeling the need both of hard
ld cash and an easy currency, listened will
ar- ingly to the brilliant suggestion of a samu
be rai of the Yechizen clan, which was, that
ale the imperial government should imitate,
be on a grand scale, what every diamio had
ad been used to do, and should iasse national
it paper-money. The resolution was speedi
is ly taken. The order was given, and Mit
is- sooka ("three hills") of Fukawi was com
he missioned to execate the orders of the
tis government. The contract to furnish the
to paper was awarded to a noted paper-maker
to of one of the villages near Fakuwi, who
to promised to furnish within a specified time
he enough paper to print fifty-one-million
kis dollars' worth of kinsalsu ("money-cards")
he as the imperial paper is called. Immedia
deo tely tripling his force of laborers, and div
ad iding them into three companies, the con
lid tractor worked them night and day until
sk the several acree of hard, white, and silky
lustrous cardboard, cnt into square feet,
ala were piled, in the Imperial Treasury (O
n- Kura Sho), in Tokie (Yeddo). After being
rn engraved, they were rapidly taken up,
or circulated throughout the empire, and are
it, still in daily use, rarely falling more than
4- seven per cent below par, the Mexican
sir dollar being the standard of value in Ja
c- paa, as in China.
dy Tae kinsatsu are of various dimensions,
r4d ranging from the size ot a United States
in Treasury note, or greenback, througla the
ck various sizes of uur postal curreney- With
For os, however, every thing is upside down,
he or the opposite of what it is in Japan;
ed perhaps a-ice versa, as a foerigner believes.
ad Hence, the legends on Jaspnese money are
read from top to tottum, perpendicularly,
a; and not from left to right. The naite of
is- valne is the boo-equal to about twenty
is five cents; The roi is abiot equal to our
mat dollar, and the two boo piece, laslves cud
a quartersofa boo, watth tire and ten rio
he pieces, compolte the divsionus of their
r's paper-money. Tllae new miiney, besides
pial bteg or-onnted wviali thla sacred mn3thi
ess cal birds, dragaas, the ci eat .1 tlae mikado,
an- etc., are inscrited with legends in Chinese
hlis characters, stating timear value, late of
uk issaue, and the fact that they kre corrent
ves for thirteen years; but they bear no pro
to alse to pay on their face. -
Jqaess.s were dellghted with their
paper schemes. Within a few months, the n
Da-Jo kan, or Supreme Council, had is- mI
sued $48,000,000 worth of paper ; and sub- yo
sequently the Mim-busho, or Department all
of the Interior, was commeissioned to issue Ma
$7,500,000 more. By several clever finan- we
cial tricks and by the means ready at the shl
command of a governmet which is a des- in
potiam of the first water, the money cir- II
culatad well, and everybody seemed e
pleased. by
There was but one trouble-the money m'
was easily counterfeited. John Chinaman tic
was especially active at the work. John's an
favorite method was to split the pecuniary Ps
card-board in two, and, by pasting on false co
backs, to add the desigo by means of a La
clever pen. John was often caught, and
so was Gonji. (Gonji in our nickname for
the typical Jap, as "Sandy," "Pat,"
"Hana," and "John," are of certatn other '
types of mankind.) Several busbels of
heads parted company from counterfeiters'
shoulders, because John and Gonji pre
ferred to earn their living "by their pen."
Japanese swords are sharp. Sentence and oil
execution are often on the same day. .
Gonji's head, after being chopped off, was do
fixed on a post by the road. On the first s,
day we visited Yeddo, two- bloody heads e
welcomed us, add told as to beware of
counterfeiting. But the more heads the
more counterfeiting, until finally preven
tion instead of cure was tried ; and a con
tract was given to a German firm of bank
note engravers at Frankfort. and to an
American company in New York, to fur
nish notes engrated in the beet foreign
style. Now, the green, pink, and blue
treasury-notes of Japan defy the counter
feitLa. Ninety-nine million dollars' worth c,
of the new paper has been printed; but
we have yet to bear of a successful irmita
tion of the new issunes. The executioner
does not like the foreign-made money, and
prefers home manufactures.
The average size of the new currency is
that of a carte de visite, and, in beauty and
minute perfection of mnechancical execu
tion, it is equal to any in the world. In a
circle of flashing sun-rays are two celestial e
birds, with their sacred months open, as if
chuckling over what a nice thing it is to
be the sacred birds of a paper-money trea
sury. They have long, sweeping tails,
and stand majestically on one foot. On
their necks are two impossible curls that r
would defy even Darwin to tell how and
why they were evolved. Above these
happy fowls is the emperor's ancestral
crest-an open chryeanthemum-and be
tween them the denomination in English
and Chinese character, and the English
words "Imperial Japanese Treasury,"
which in microscopic letters, are, repeated I
Sseveral hundred times. Thy cherry-blos
- som, the national floral emblem of Japan
is also conspicuous. Beneath are the om
nipresent dragons, which, with claws, tail,
horns, and mustaches, are made to look as
B respectable as possible. On the reverse
f side are circles, small birds, peacocks,
Sdragon-flies, create, stars, and much mic
a roscopic printing in English. Each piece
f is stamped in blue, red, and green ink,
- with the elaborate seal of the Japanese
i, Imperial Treasury. The whole amonot of
- paper-money thus far issued by the Jap
e anese Government is as follows: Kinsatsu,
- bearing the seal of the Dai-jo-kan, or Sn
, preme Council of Japan, 48,000,000 roi
e (dollare) ; kinsatsu issued by the Mim-bu
e sho, or Department of the Interior, 7,500
n 000 roi; paper money, manufactured by
- by the diamios, but still in circulation,
a 33,309,20 roi ; new paper-money, intended
" to replace all the old paper, both local and
e national, $99,000,000.
In addition to the above, "stamped
e deeds," which circulate as money, have
,e been issued by the Japanese Government
k to the extent of several million dollars.
or The displacement by the national cnr
is rency of the old paper issues, which are
e worthless beyond the limits of the province
ir in which they are printed, will have a
is healthy effect on the prosperity of the
te country. The old metallic money, too, has
Af been superseded by a new coinage of great
h beauty and uniformity, which is denomin
ie ated according to the decimal system.
i With a national coinage and currency,
:e financial enterprises are now being set on
is foot, and already there are banks conduct
ie ed on the American national bank princi
of pie in many of the leading cities through
ix out the empire. They are the growth of
ie less than five years. W. C. Gnimres.
to Good and wise parents, without relaxing
al necessary discipline, endeavor to make
-d home happy and to furnish sources of
I- amnusement, occupation and interest in the
- evenings to induce both sons and daughters
it to remain at home. They always allow
e, their childten to remain at perfectease with
l them, and this is done by kindly encour
al agement and praise when deserved, not
i- sparing reproof when reqauired, but admin
t- istering it kindly and firmly. Nagging,

me avoided. A uniformly kind manner, a ready

a- guided by their advice. Yet how rarely we

n- footing-the mother the daughter's most
till confidential friend, the father the compan
Y- ion of his son. The lad and lass, cowed at
