Crkers vemn Cwo assht eow prose the world to crhak. As great a blessing as contentment is, and as attainable by all who as. sicloosly seek it by raee and phi. Ineophy-the first a gift in asawer to prayer, the latter its usual con colnitanlt--yet to croak is a weansess to whbeb the world with its few ex ceptions, which are always allowed is general rules, suocumb., no mat ter what the ciruonmtances or ano roundings. The boy says: "When I am a man and am freed from the thraldom of" all restraints, Ill be happy." The man ways: ",When I've at tained so much property to operate ulwo, I'll I. contented." The mtaiddle aged thinks: "When, I've nccaCnlnlated an much ,for a rain. day' when lolmplled to nrst ulln ll1y lees. I'll be happy.* Even the Wall street brokers of the Stuck Exchange, who count their dollars by the millions, will vociferate frantically at the least menace of the fall in value of their inveatllents, and have in Oonse. Squelnre been dlubbed with the titles "Talurns anid termssi." But after all is wa:izel eve tbeyond their moat sanilgine ezpxrwetioans, that little will o'.the.wisp: coutentument, is still just tweyoml. They have pureued it as zealously as did aselas, yet like the mirage with its inviting but de ceitfnl awards and refreshing waters, ever elude the longiang and wearied pnrsner as unrelentingly as it did Tantalus in the ladm of Tartarns. There is another clasa of croakers who are gifted with a vivid imlagla tion ina making "moulltains out of mnole hills." Where it touches the least bit their interest they are ex. quiaitely sensitive. A thing trifling enough within Itself is sdllcient to dethrone their whole equilibrlium, and they allow shadows to hnant them until tihe "boull fde"slºlstance of a god siled monntnin makes its appearance, which it does to all sooner or later in some forem oro other, just as it overshadows andl wipes out the minor and insignia. I cant, the imagination takes another 1 gigantic flight, causing the present i trouble to aqpulne the altitude and proportions of Mt. Blanc. Another producingeause of eroa k. ing isa natural, though unconscious, 1 selfisbness. Given to seeing things I in an interested light; can't 'see ourselves as others see nas;" must have a pro or con to all questions, I each hissed in favor of self-hence i bickering anud rmaking. Contentment, or happiness, is not I found in either circumstances or certain places, but springs from within. The heart being the foul.. tail head, all things semn beautiful I andI all disllenaatons right. Otrt. asle of that, the search for it will le as fruitless as for the philoseo pher's atolne, or the fabled Eldorado, I the dlimlpplintmmet as complete as Itat of the "Sooth Sea Babble" which has become so proverbial. They will in the connme of time illecun h .hilual croakers, tied with a gordion knot of discontentment's chain, as adamantine as that which 1 Iulond Proteus. ever dilusinggloou, melahobely anld evil ioreboding, as. the dliunaiI crMakling of Poe's HItaven.

"Oo. day one of the ieands of the Island called at my des sad sasid: 'Friend Daniel, what will thee ask to come to Nantaucket next week andl plead a cause for mn before the judages 'I will go for a thousamd dollars.' That Is too much, Priend I)aniel.' 'But I will hare to go down Satnrday, and perhaps remain the whole week following.

"My clieent went to Nantmokes and found bin cause at the foot of the d'ocket.

W "hel we Imeet thleu they are rfll of what they have aseet and reand. They are brismlllnlsg with questions. One topic of conrvers tion is drolplwld onll' to give Iplace to jyaother, in which they are inter ested. We have left them, after a delightful hour, atilanicted, refresh. eel; noel during the whole hour not a eilghlior'a gaLrmett was saoiled by so much as a sroohl. They had some. thiing to talk asliont. They knew sowmtbinr and wanted to know mnore. They could listen as well as they could talk. To speak freely of a neighbor's doings and belongln would have seemed an impertinence to thenm, and, of course, an impro priety. They had no temptation to gsusil, Lbecause the doigs of their neighbors formed a subject muck le"n interesting tha, those which grew out of their knowledgp and their culture.
