She evidently surprised nt the of Mrs. liviinett to do any work for her: but as gnat press-lire of business was pleaded as nn there was nothing to be puid mid t-lic soon took her li-nve.

'-I was about culling :it vour house. Would it be conveni- ent to f-ettle nur account this afternoon account V wns the surprised re- ply. Surely the term has not Only half of it: but my present rule is to collect rny money at that time. It is a plan which many teachers have adopted of late." I wns npt-awarc that there-had been any change in your rules, nnd I hare made arrangements t'o meet your bill at the usual time. I fear thai it will not be in my pow- er to do it sooner.'' The countenance of the teacher showed great disappointment, and as she passed on in a different direction, he muttered to him- self: Just as I expected. I shall never Ree a cent. Everybody says thcry nre going down hill. 1 m lit-1 get rid of the children some wny. Perhnph I may get a pair of shoes or tsvo in payment of the half quarter, if I manage it right ;.but it will.never do to go on in this way." A little discomposed by her interview with the teacher, Mrs. Thompson, stopped into a neighboring grocery to purchase some trilling article of family .stores. "I have a little account against you. Would it be convenient for Mr. Thompson to settle it this evening asked the polite shopkeeper, as he produced the desired ar- ticle. Is it yonr usual time for was again the surprised inquiry. Well not exactly but money is very tight just now, and I am anxious to get all that is due me. In the future I intend to keep short accounts. There is the little bill, if you would like to look at it. I will call around this evening. It is but a small affair." Thirty dollars is no small sum to us just now." thought Mrs. Thompson, as she pursued her way towards home, thought- fully. It seems strange that all these payments must bo made .just now, while we are struggling to recover from the heavy expense of the winter. I cannot under- stand it." Her perplexity was increased by finding her husband'with two bills in his hand, and a countenance expressive of anxiety and concern. "Look, lie said, as she entered, here are two unexpected calls for money __one from the doctor, nnd the other from the dealer in leather, from whom I pur- chased my last stock. They are both very urgent for immediate payment, although tbcy have always been willing to wait a few mouths until I could make arrangements to meet their claims. But misfortune nev- er comes singly, and if a man gets a little behindhand, trouble seems to pour in upon him. Just replied the neigh- bors think we are going down hill, and ev- ery one is ready to give us a push. Here ftre two more bills for yon one from the grocer and the other tiuni the teuchor."

In an-Her to the advertisement, about one youug men presented then-selves1 at the old lawyer's office at the appointed time.

The authors of the sacred book of the LLindous were cvidently'not in favor of woman's lights. ''When in the pres- ence of her husband." havs one, a wo man must keep her eyes upon her mas- ter, nnd be ready to receive his com- mands. When he speaks, she must be ijiiiet. and listen to nothing beside. When he calls-, she must loave every- thing else, and attend to him alone. A woman has no other god on earth but her husband. The inopt excellent of all good works she can perform, is to grati- fy him with the strictest obedience. This should be her only devotion. Though he be aged, ii'finn, disippated, a drunkard or a debauchee, .she must still reuard him as her god.'' A little boy named Knight, who re- cently entered the mission school of Now London, was told by the teachers that he must be a good boy, and when he died he would go to heaven. The. little boy was well pleased with the prospect, and promised to be the best kind of a boj. The next Sunday he appeared in his place looking sorrow- ful, and the teacher asked him if he had been a good boy. he re- plied, I've tried to be good; but it's no use. The boys say I can't go to heaven if I'm ever so good." "Why do the boys say asked the teach- er. They say." replied the boy wirh the utmost simplicity, there'll bo no night there." A German soldier received a private letter; being unable to read it, he took it to his sergeant, and requested him to read it to him. He began to do so at once; but as he proceeded the soldier became very uncomfortable at hearing details of a very private nature, and so alarmed was he at what might follow, yet desiring to know, that he clapped his hands over the sergeant's held them there so tightly that the man could uot hear his own voice, and the soldier, in his supreme ignorance, imagined his secrets to be quite safe.
