If she watches through the night she can sleep' through the day, and by six o'clock next evening will be as blithe as a bird aud as fresh as adaiy. Yon, on the contrary, are a frail, fatigued little woman with a large family and the affliction of neuralgia. Every hour of your day is occupied with work that can neither U,e dele gated nor laid aside. Yon have your lessons to give, your article to w rite, your part to study, even your puddings to make ami your "children's mouth to teed generally. But you are a warm-hearted, impul sive little woman, worn out atom as yon are, and yon offer great tilings ont of yonr great soul, which when searched for are not to be found within the compass of your small body.

It would have been sub stantially kinder, then, to have left the poor tarnished creature to the elastic mercy of chance than to bring him as you have into a bar ren certainly, though backed by the most luxuriant settling of bene volent inleutious. Benevolent in tentions are like tho fine words of fered iu lion of butter w hen -parsnip abound; and the Hartnecitle who gave a feast quenched no thirst and satisfied no hunger for all his verbal array of sparkling wines ami luscious, food. If impulses of loving gc.neroNify are apt to como to grief, the im pulses, of unfriendly wrath ate still more sure to find evil issues. It is strange how often an unkind im pulse proves itself untrue. The suspicious fear, the passionate de nunciation, the vague abhorrence, it acted on are almost certain to be found wrong before the thing ts done with, and many an impulsive hater, hitting hard, and thinking he or she is hitting righteously, has had cause to regret to the lust day of life the incautious acceptance of belief as truth,' and the unfriendly "sincerity" which gave utterance to the same. Without being senti iiental or sickly, there is 110 ques tion the more generous the judg ment the more likely it is to be true, nnd the fewer the hard words we have uttered the less we shall have wherewith to reproach our selves when we tome to measure the amount of unmerited mischief we ha ve done our fellow-men. Un doubtedly, the less we yield to un friendly impulses, the mora safely we shall walk and the more surely wo shall be right. 27 Qnen, A DESTKUCTIVE FIKE.
