A backward view recalls the hours

As aromatio summer flowers

The memory of a childhood passed
Beneath a gentle's mother's sway,
With love's sweet mantle o'er it oast,
Cun never wholly pass away.
Whatever adult fate we earn,
Whate'cr the censure or the praise—
Still will the fond heart sometimes turn
Back to those careless, happy days.
Then let us, as wo journey on,
Hndeavor some sad heart to ehccr—
'Twill be an act to think upon .
When ending our probation here—
A joy to know that after death

There still lives in our mortal breath
Some fondly cherished memory.

KATY'S SACRIFICE.
It Furnished Comfort and Happi

O it N Gill F

glish manufact
urer, sat in a
room in his ele
g a n t man sion
ono day in au
tumn. To judge
by his face, his
reflections wero
of an agreeable
nature.
"Tho prospect

himself, "that

for one who started as a poor boy. And

Ho was interrupted here by tho en
trance
"Mr. Griffith," he said, "there are
three men below who would like to see
you."
"Three men?"
"Yes, sir. They are not gentlemen,"
said tho servant, who understood the
question. "They are men from the
mill, I'm thinking."
"Very well; show them up." —
It was a holiday, and the works were
not in operation, so that the operatives
were off work.
Then was heard the tramp of heavy
hoots on tho staircase, and presently
entered threo men, whoso dresB and ap
pearance indicated clearly that they be
longed to the class who are doomed to
earn their daily broad by hard and un
remitting labor.
"What is your business with me, my
men?" asked Mr. Griffith, rising and
surveying them with interest. "Are you
empiyed in the mill?"
"Yes, sir," said the foremost, Hugh
Roborts, "yes, Mr. Griffith, sir, we are
employed in the mill, and it's about
that we've come to see you."
"Very well," said John Griffith, re
suming his seat, "speak on, whatever
you have to say to me."
"it's this, Mr, Griffith, sir, and I hope
you won't bo offended at what I say.

Mr. Griffith made a mental calcula
tion. He had three hundred men in his
employ. He found that sixpence a day
additional would make a sum total,
during the year, of over two thousand
pounds. This reflection hardened his
heart against the applicants.
"No," he said, "your request is un
reasonable; I can not accede to it."
"Hut, sir," said Hugh Roberts, "think
what it is to support a family on three
shillings a day."
"It is hard, no doubt," said Mr. Grif
fith; "but I can not afford to make the
advance you desire."
"Then you refuse, sir?"
"I do. If you can do any better, of
course, I won't prevent your bettering
yourselves."
"Wo can't do better, sir," said Hugh,
bitterly, crushing his hat between his
toil-hardened fingers,
other way to live except to work for ymi
and take what you are pleased to pay."
"Think it over, my men," said Mr.
Griffith, more good-humoredly, for ho
had carried his point, "and you will see
that I can't pay more than other man
ufacturers. I'vo no doubt your wives
and children will oarn something to
help you along."
The threo men departed with sad
faces, looking as if life woro a weary
struggle, with little to choor it.
Scarcely had tho.y left the room when
Katy Griffith entered.
Iiorn when her father was compara
tively late in lifo, she was his darling,
and the light of his existence. It was
for her that he wished to become very
rich that he might make her a match for
the highest, as he was wont to express
"They will overlook old John Grif
fith's pedigree," he said to himself, "if
his daughter has a good hundred thou
sand pounds to her dowry."
Katy entered, a bright-eyed, attractive
girl of fifteen, of whom her father might
well bo proud.
"How are you, my darling?" said her
father, smiling fondly upon her.
"I'm always well," she said lightly;
"but, papa, who woro those poor men

scolding them?"
"What makos you ask, Katy?"
"Because they looked so sad and dis
couraged."
"Did they?" asked Mr. Griffith, with
momentary compunction.
"Yes, papa! and I heard one of them
sigh, as if he wero tired of living."
"They wero men from the mill,
Katy."
"And what did they como for? Do
you toll them about tho work?"
"No; the overseer does that."
"Then what did they come for?"
"You are very curious, my darling."
"That isn't tolling mo, papa," said
the young lady, persistently.
"Then, if you must know, it was to
ask for higher wages."
"Of course you gave it."
"Of courso I didn't. Why should I?"
"Because they need it. How much do
they get now?"
"Tliroo shillings a day."
"Only throe shillings a day!" ex
claimed Katy, "and have to support

"Yos."
"O, papa, how can you pay thorn such
mean wages?"
"1 pay as high wages as other manu
facturers," said hor father.
"But they can't live on throe shil
lings a day, poor men. How much more
did they ask for?"
"Sixpence a day."
"Only sixpence a day, and you re
fused," said Katy, reproachfully.
"But consider, my dear, on all my
workmen it would amount to moro than
two thousand pounds a year."
"And how much do you make in a
year, papa?"
"This year," said
proudly, "I think I shall make nearly
fifteen thousand pounds."
"You don't surely spend all that,
papa?"
"Not more than four thousand."
"And the rost?"
"I lay up for my Katy."
"Then," said Katy, "as it is to he
mine, pay tho men a shilling moro a
day. Thoro'll bo enough left for me. I
shouldn't enjoy money that was taken
from so many poor people. Think,
papa, how much good tho extra shilling
would do to your poor men, and how
little difference it would make to me. 1

papa, you worn onco poor yourself. Aou

At these words, Mr. Griffith recalled
tho difficult struggle he had early in
life, and tho selfishness of his present
treatment of liis poor operatives struck
him forcibly. His own heart joined
v/ith his daughter.

"I have been thinking of your re

kind tone, "and though 1 doubt whether
any other manufacturer would grant it,

"Trnly so. The overseer shall re

The workman burst into tears, but
they were tears of joy,
"The men will bless you," ho said,
smiling, and the words had a pleasant
sound for Mr. Griffith. A hearty bless
ing is not to be despised.
It was found on experiment that the
profits of the business were but little
affected by tho increased wages, for tho
men now worked with a hearl.y good
will which enabled them to accomplish
more work in a day, so that Katy's sac

great bulk that swam so majestically,
there was a little toilsome steam tug,
with a heart of fire and arms of iron,
that was tugging it bravely on, and 1

but it is quito evident that some young
American girls think, if the outside of

matter about the inside. They neglect
their speech, which is a matter of vital
importance. For wherever we live,
whether in Yorkshire or Rome, Peoria
or Paris, there are such things as a cul
