Original Story.
. "Hello 1 Will, where are you
going with that cow ?"
Thus cried out Sam Murry
as Willie drove a nice cow along
the street.
"I am driving this cow over
to the Parson. My Aunt has
decided to allow the Parson's
wife and family the use of this
cow for a number of months,"
answered Willie.
When Willie had reached
the Parson's pasture, who
should be meet but the preach
er in person. The good boy
promptly delivered his message
in a polite and gentlemanly
manner, and was just on the
cvo of leaving when tho minis
ter actosted him thus :
'Willie, I have often noticed
your 'thoroughness and persis
tent endeavors toward useful
ness, and wondered why it was
that you did not immediately
devote your mind to the study
of some profession ?"
','It is my wish, Mr. Walker,"
said Willie ; "but I am only a
poor orphan boy, and must do
the best I can."
"What profession would you
prefer, my little friend?" re
joined the Parson.
"Of all things in the world,
I'd rather ho a minister," said
The good preacher saw that
the whole bent of the boy's
mind tended toward that of all
others the most august and sa
cred profession, ' namely, the
In a few minutes the boy had
departed, and the man of God
wended his way to his study,
all the while thinking about the
rosy-faced little boy with whom
he had just held the above con
A true Gospel preacher feels
a strange and potent realiza
tion, when he has it forced upon
his mind, that God designs a
certain being as "a chosen ves
sel." How that good man pray
ed and planned for the future
of Willie. Ho knew that Mr.
Lorenzo, the uncle of the boy,
had the means to help his ne
phew if he would, but Aere was
the difficulty1. Mr. L. was -a
cold, selfish, stingy man. If
the Lord would convert Mr. L.
over again,'all might Work well,
but the trouble arising hero
was : Mr. L. considered himself
a very pious man, and boasted
in his firmness and perfection
of judgment To remonstrate
with Mr. Li,' would bring, down
his j sarcastlq j rebuff and cruel
retort, for he allowed no one to

isters or school-teachers, for he
knew as much and a great deal
nioro than they did, when it
camo. to, things of every-day
lie, outside of books,eto. With
such a man as this to deal with,
and the fear of being officious,
Mr. , Walker felt it to bo his
duty, to pray' over the master
for 'a few days.

Parson W. '
One morning, some two weeks
after ,tho ' conversation.; 'he?cj; at
tho bam witli Willie, Mr. AW
er ' went out into the grove ,to
pray; and refresh : himseif vyitli
a walk ' in 'the cool1 and pure,
morning breeze. It was at this
time that tho good man decided
that ho would pay. Mr. and Mrs.
Lorenzo a visit, and divulge his
mind and his plans, and by the
help' of God, enforce his con
victions about the lad. Mr. W.
and all the village had noticed
the irregularity of Willie's at
tendance at school, and every
one knew that Mr. L. was the
cause of all the trouble. In, a
few hours after tho mornibg
walk, wjQ,find.3kl. -Walker ! at
the residence of Mr.
When Willie returned ' from
the Parsons, Mrs. L. enquired
about the family and especially
about what the ministers said.
When the lad told the good
woman all about the conversa
tion with Mr. Walker, the eyes
of Mrs. Lorenzo were twinkling
with an unusual interest as if
to say, some good will come out
of all this yet.
The stern Mr. L. came in and
directed the boy to his work,
charging him not to come to
the house until the noon train
had gone down.
After given his orders, Mr.
L. took his pipe as usual, and
spent an hour smoking to 'the
destruction of his health and
mind, if not his morals and re
ligion. Mrs. Lorenzo had com
menced talking in a general
way, preparing the way to the
theme of most., importance to
her. '
"Good morning, Parson,"
said Mr. L., as Eld. Walker en
tered tho room. "I am very
glad to see you. Hope you are
"Quite well, thank you,"
said the Parson.
After taking each of tho two
by tho hand, Mr. W. took his
seat and commenced conversa
tion. In a short time the El
der oberved, that "he had made
the call for the purpose of con
sulting Mr. and Mrs.. L. rela
tive to matter that had empress
edhis mind very powerfully' for
some time." '
"Very well" said Mr. L., "it
is our duty to confer together,
and my experience is that iny
advice always come around to
be the best. I dm very glad
that the Parson has at last dis
covered the proper member of
his church, with whome to con
fer ; have been a church mem

: "Buy interposed Elder W.,
"L have no fears about your do

you must rather allow mo to
commend you for your goid
qualities. .The object of my cill
this morning consists in an 'in

"Now wife", said Mr, ;L.,
"have you been over at Mr.'lvV

hero comes tho Parson, and to
make a long story short. I

materially, and also enable ypu
to do great good in the.1, world.".
"What is iti then' saicf Mr,
L.,rathcr. subduncd. , .,
"I am convinced," said the
Parson, "tliat Willie possesses
unusual . sense, - and rt bent of
mind tending toward useful
ness, and now, I want to help
you help him, so that ho may
bo ojualiticd for usefulness such
as jwill honor God, and man
kind." ''Oh, yes 1 wife has been at
mejconQerning tho same thing.'
..Indeed! said tho Pastor,
"then she too feels a deep in-
tcrist in behalf of Zion?"
prayed and wept over this, mat
ter for a long time."
"Well," said Mr. L, "let us
have your plan Mr. W"
?As you do not feel disposed
to send the boy off to school,
put him through the school here
and then I will agree to become
his tutor, and qualify him for
the work of the ministry, both
classically and theologically,
and all the expense you need
have, will bo in boarding and
clothing the boy, and he can do
this studying at home, and
come to me and recite, hence
you will have him with you,
and at the same time ho can
prepare his lessons."
i These suggestions of Elder
Walker, suited Mr. L. better
than any thing ever before pre
sented, and he told tho Parson
so, and asked to think on the
subject a few days, and there
tho conversation ended,;-'and
Mr. W. returned to his home
greatly encouraged. .;' Mrs. L.
was filled with gladness, and a
better spirit seemed to take
possession of Mr. Lorenzo.
When Willie came in he saw
that a pleasent genius presided,
and ho was perplexed at tho
kindness of his Uncle.
My Friend.
I had a friend who was very
dear to me; we shared each
other's joys and sorrows, like
David and Jonathan.
There was a protracted meet
ing in our neighborhood, and
great interest in the preaching
of God's word ; many were con
victed and converted. My own
soiil was deeply affected, and I
resolved to go forward and ask
the prayers of the people of
I made known my inten
tions to my friend, and asked
him to go with me. "I cannot
go," he Raid firmly, "but Heav
en forbid that I should keep you
back; go, he said, "and may
' ' ,, '
IGod help you. I turned from
lp yo
him calmly. I felt my need of
a Saviour, and said iu my heart:
"I ciin hut pui'IhIi If I go,
I am resolved to try,
I'or if I slay away 1 know
I must for over die."
I I had scarcely taken my seat
on the mourner's bench before'
my friend came forward. To
gether we wept in , penitential
sorrow, and soon the Sun .oi
righteousness arose in our
souls. '
Years passed away. Through
many trials and temptations we
yearned for,"a closer walk ith
God," and in , the midst pt iny
friend's usefulness , ho heard
tho' summons, "Come up high
er." Oh, if you havo n friend, go
to him now while it is called to
day, and ask him to come to
Jesus. Soon ho may be beyond
the reach of mercy. Don't wait
for others ; go to him yourself;
your influonco may bo greater
than you think; see that you
use it to the glory of God.

The Reality.
.V.iVhiId. Women nounco unon

over with singing the praises
of gentle woman, tho guardian

. Never was a more meaning
less seutiment framed in words.
It sounds well, and passes with
the unthinking. But reality
displays an utter want of con
fidence in woman on the part
of man.
True, if a woman is ignorant
and has proven herself incapa
ble of comprehending the go6d
and bad as it exists in the
worlt iVTJdled ; an excel
lent woman, a-inodol wife j and
she shines in the lustre of man's
approbation above suspicion.
But let a woman venture to
evince a clear insight into hu
man affairs, and a true knowl
edge of men and women, and
many a coward who feels his
inferiority will cry out, "Look
out for her. She is a danger
ous woman. She kuows too
This dread of women whoi
understand human nature is so
great with many men that they
seek their wives iu the quiet
by-wayj of the country, and
marry girls whose lives have
been as uneventful as tho tiny
brooks that babble in the mead
ows, and who are as innocent
of any true knowledgo of the
realities and conventionalities
of life as ' the. litUe fish that
sports iliereltr among the peb
bles' aud.',in' shady places. v'
This all comes 6f distrusting
women. Men "seldom think of
reasoning with themselves, say
ing, "This woman may have
erred, but have I not done the
same? Sho is thus as good
as I."
A man believing a woman
because he holds her will, her
opinions, her brain capacity in
the palm of his hand, cannot
claim to havo dignified her with
his confidence.
So' long as women distrust
and abuse each other, they do
uot deserve, and will not re
ceive the confidence of the. op
posite sex. '
Not until there is greater
height and depth of education
and requirement of woman,
which will bring her better na
ture into activity, will she out
grow the narrow envies and
suspicions which make pan
demonium in every heart where
they dwell will woman be-
lieve in and mako allowance
for the failings of her sister.
Then, and not till then, will

How to be profited by Preaching.
Charolotte Elisabeth, -
friend, 8ays,fAbout that time
he piado a remark that m
pressed me deeply, and I hope
abidingly. We attended the
ministery of Mr. II-, and
on one occasion, adverting! to
some criticism on his sermons,
I asked him, 'How is it, that
while they call this sermon fine,
and that one dry, and another
one heavy, etc., I find them so
profitable, and always " come
away instructed and fed from
the word ?' With animated
promptness, he replied, 'I'll tell
you' how it is '; yoi pray j for
him.' 'Indeed I do, and that
h&.maybe taught from on high
to tenet me.r ' fc;M! '
" 'Ay, there it is, and your
prayer, you find is answered.
The preacher or the hearers
either feed or starve each other.
What they withhold from him
in prayer, they lose in instruc
tion and benefit. Those who
listen only to cavil or admire,
go away empty of spiritual food ;
while those who give liberally
to their minister in secret pray
er for him, have their souls
richly fed by the' very same
preaching that falls uublest on
others. Bear your minister,' he
added, 'more and more on your
heart to the throne of grace,
and you will feast more largely
on the banquet that he spreads.'
"I havo to be thankful," she
continues, "that my friend's
council was not lost on me.
From that minister, indeed,
was soon removed, for in a
short time he was called away
to his rest. 'But I carried the
lesson to another pasture,where
richly as we are fed, mine
always seems to be a Benjamin's
portion, for I have learned the
seoret of the profitable barter,
which I would commend to ev'
ery Christian hearer, namely,
instant, affectionate, personal
intercession for the minister,
in the spirit of faith. When we
are faithful to this, we sit prof
itably under the hearing of di
vine truth, humbly confident of
receiving the assured answer to
our prayers in the portion which
is divided, and will always be
blessed to us.".
Youth, Manhood, Age.
It is the solemn thought con
nected with middle life, that
life's last business is began in
earnest, and it is then, midway
between tho cradle and the
grave, that a man begins to
marvel that Be let the days of
youth go by so half enjoyed
It is the pensive Autumn feel-
iug, it is the sensation of half
sadness that we experience
when tho longest day of the
year is passed, and every day
that follows is shorter, and the
light fainter, and tho feebler
shadows tell that nature is has
tening with gigantio footetops
to her Winter grave. So , does
man look hack upon his youth
When the first gray hairs be
come visible, when the unwel
come truth fastens itself upon
the mind that a man is no
longer going up hill,; but down
and that the sun is always west
erning, he looks' back on things
behind, When, ye' were chil
dren .we thought as children.
But now there lies before us
manhood, with its earnest work,
i nd then old age, and then the
grave, and then home. There
is a second youth for man, bet
ter and holier than his first,
if he will look on, and not
look back.
