and wife, and to be
thought well of by bis neighbors. He
had built himself a house, and there
still remained upon it a mortgage of
$500; but this sum ho hoped to pay in
a few years, if lie only had his health,
lie had calculated exactly how long
it would take him to cienr olT this incumbrance,
and he went to work with
his eyes open.
One evening James en me home to bis
supper more thoughtful tlum usual.
His young wife noticed liis manner,
und she inquired its cause.
"What is it, James'/" ulie kindly
asked. "Why, 1 never saw you look so
sober before."
"Well, I'll tell you, Hannah," "returned
the young man, with a slight
hesitation in his manner. "I have just
been thinking that 1 would buy a lottery
Hannah Lanning did *:ot answer immediately.
She looked down and
smoothed the silken hnir of her babe,
which was chirping like a little robin
in her arms, and the shades of her
handsome features showed that she
was taking time to think.
"How much will it cost?" she asked,
nt length, looking half timidly up. in to
Lor husband's face.
"Twenty dollars," returned .?.tines, |
Trying to assume :i confidence which
lie did not foci.
"Ami have you made up your mind
to buy It?"
"Well. I think I shall. Wbat do you
think about It?"
"If you should ask my advice, I
should say do not buy it."
"But why so?"
"For many reasons," returned, his
.wife, in n trcmhiimr tono.
She would not offend her husband,
and she shrank from giving him advice
which ho might not follow.
"In the first place/' she said, "I think
the whole science of lotteries is a had
one; and then you have no money to
"But just look at the prizes," said
James, drawing a "scheme" from his
pocket. 'Tlere is one prize of $20,000,
(mother of ?10,000, Another J?r>000, and
ho on. Something tells nio that If I
liny a ticket I shall draw a large prize.
'And then just think, Hannah, how wis
aiy i coma pay nil up for my house,
ami perhaps have a good linnilsouie

The young man spoke \vu!t raueli

"Surely, there is nothing dishonest in
dl'nwing a prize iti a lottery."
"I II.ink there is," kimliy, but cmphfltleally,
replied tho wife. "AH
panics of hfl/.ard, whore money is at
?take, are dishonest. Were yon to
draw n prize of $20,000, you would
rob a thousand men of .S'JO each; or
?t least, j'on would take from then;
money for which you returned tiiein no

.fames Limning was uneasy. Tic had
no answer for his wife's arguments;
?t least, no niiMvcr that could spring
from his moral convictions, and lie lot
the matter drop. Hut the young man
could not drop the nron from his
heart. All the next day his head was
full of "prizes," and while lie was at
Ills work he kept muttering to himself,
"Twenty thousand dollars," "Ten thou

"Ob, I'm .sure I sliall draw a prize I"
lie said ,with a faint, fading smile.
llo took four liiilf-caglos from tho
box, and put tlieni in Ills poekot. Ills
wife said nothing. Mio played with her
baby to iiido iior sadness, for siie did
not wish to say more on Hie subject.
She had* scon that liltie pile of gold
gradually accumulating, and both she
and lier husband had boon happy in anticipating
the day when tlio pretty
cottage would 1)?? all tlierr own. lint
when she saw those four pieces of gold
taken away from tlie store, she felt a
foreshadowing of evil. She might have

but she saw that her husband v/as

she let the affair go to the hands of
A week elapsed from the time that
James bought his ticket to the drawing
of tiie lottery, and during that, time
the young man had not a moment of

between hope and fear, and therefore
liis mind was constantly 011 the
stretch, ,
At length the day arrived. James
went to the otilee, and found that tli0
drawing had takeu place, and that the
list of prizes had been made out. lie
seized the list and turned away, so

of two months of hard labor, and
ho felt their loss most keenly.
When he returned homo that night
ho told his wife that he had lost. She
found no fault with him. She only
kissed him and told him that the lesson
was a good one, even though it had
been dearly bought.
lint James Launing was not satisfied,
lie brooded over his loss with a bitter
spirit, and at length the thought eame

tlie ticket without Ills wife's
