In the meantime, Mr. Bebce walked tpward the further' end of (he store, aiid opening a door which led to of the house, he called his housekeeper, Mrs, Morgan, A trim l.usy li'Ule body appeared, and de- sired to know what 'he wanied. 1 Mrs. said Mr. Bebefij didn't I see you making souib shirts for me the other day." Yes sir.1 'How many havc'yon rnnde question rather .flurried the little woiruin she had never known him to make such inquiries before, and she was afraid he thought she did not get on enough with his so she answered with rather a friendly look Only tbree, sir, have had to go BO often to widow Brown's since her little boy was taken sick, that I How mnny more have you cut out to make 'i'- asked Mr." Bebee, interrupting her, Three more, sir.'- I'm very 'glad you have not made more than three.

What made you corae back again, then 'Because I felt that I was acting like a coward, and I knew mother would be vexed with rue, anit 1 thought I bad bet- ter do right, and run the risk of your cane, than do wrong and make raoiher sorry.' Don't you call it doing wrong, to my window Yes sir, beeanse it was careless of me. Mother says we arc apt to do wrong, smd, when we do, we should atone for it; and I don't know what, 1 can do except to rive you all the money I've got and try To earn and poor Charles looked sadly out of the broken window. Kow the fact was, Mr. Bebee was not half so cross as lie looked he was Tory much pleased with Charles' conduct, and only questioned him. 'What is your name inquired lie. Charles Mann.' 1 Where do you live Charles told him. What dees your mother do She takes in sewing when she can get any, but she hasn't had any to do-for n long while and Charles looked wistfully at the two-and-ninepence. 'Perhaps she will be angry with you or giving me that money.' 0 no, sir.. I she would rather would. How old sue 1 Twelve years.' And what do you do for a living Mother wanted me. to go to the pub- lic school as long as she could earn enough to support us but this morning, she said she was afraid I sh.ould have to look around for some thing to do, as she couldn't get enough of work.' 1 Well, Charles, I believe I'll take you into my store until you earn enough to pay for the window but I'm almos afraid you'll be breaking the bottles o jars every day.' I'll try to be more careful, sir.' When Charles left the store lie hurried j to the glaziers, but he lived at some dis tnnco, and it was late buforo he reached homo. 'Why, my said his mother, look- ing np with a sunny sn.iie when lie en- what has kept you so lute I met with an accident, mother.' Mrs. Mann looked anxiously at him, tn see if any bruises or wonnds were visible, but his face reassured her, and he procctdeil io relate all of the aficrr.o Hi. She commended his con- duet bu1 ffpntly chilled bis carelessness by Well, Charles, wo have neith- er of" r.S sot iroicy now; if you 1 ad been a little more careful, wo might have had n cup of tea to-night, but as it is, we must make milk and water do and I am sorry to say we have r.o more sugar.' Mother, are' you sorry I gave -Mr Bebce the money Xo, indeed, dear T would rather drink n.i'k nnd of tea all my life -than have you do anything mean: and k-t me tell you 3Ir. Charles, some folks hsvn't cot any milk we ought to be very thankful that we have; anil here's nearly a loaf of brtad then tomor- row I hope to get some sewing, and pnr- liups you'il be able to earn a lutle money "l diire say we shall get alor.g finely. But although the widow spoke cheer- fully, a sigh finished the sentence. They were jupt goirg to sit down to tea, or rather to milk and water nnd bread, when r. flipping was heard at the door. Charles went to open it, nnd there stood a little woman with a basket on her arm, nnd a smile on her countenance, bright and pleasant, that I ntn sure she must have saved candles wherever she lived. 'Does Mrs. Mann live here T inquired she, setting down the basket. Yes, ma'am will you walk in and take a sen I V said Charles, as he placed a chair for her. 'Thank said she then turning to Mrs. Mann, she said, Mr. Bebee, the as Charles entered, the latter him- good.Corning; with .a cheerful smile, and are to be our errand boy, are 31011 Yes'nia'ain, shan't I sweep out the store r 1 Well, yes, I suppose that .will be a part of your business Bridget, you can give .Uhailes the broom, and go out and sec about breakfast.' Budget did not seem at all loth to yield the broom, and Charles, began sweeping in good earnest. Mrs Morgan followed Bridget out, leaving Charles all alone. He made the place as neat as he could, and was thinking what elso to'tiOj when Mrs. Morgan came in again She; praised him for his notion of keeping things as she expressed it. Mr..Bebce was a widower he bad lost three children wl.en they were; quite young, and now he had no one-to care for, and no one to care for him, except good little Mrs. Morgan, and ho could have a want if she could help it And now she was at tho head of tho ta- ble, waiting to pour out his coffee. 'Good morning, Mrs. said Mr Bebee, as he came in and took his seat at the table I had no opportunity of speaking to yon last night; did you find Mrs, Mann 1 Yesi and I got there just in the nick of time they were sitting down .to tea, and there was nothing, on the table bat some dry bread and a little milk and wa- ter.' 'Has Charles come asked Mr. FJcliee, after some tirub. Yes, sir I think he is a real nice boy, and will save yon lots of trouble.', What is he doing now I left him washing the windows.' Bless my heart I must go and see that he doesn't break .anything.' 'I don't think you need be said Mrs. Morgan, smiling, as Mr. Bebee went towards the store. Charles was putting things carefully back into window when Mr. Bebee went the old gentleman seemed to think that Mrs. Morgan was right. Dur- ing the day. Charles made himself use- ful in several way he was naturally a bright, ac'.ive boy, and now gratitude to Mr. Bebee, and the idea of benefiting his mother made him work with double en- ergy. Mr. Bebee began to wonder how he had ever got jiioiig without him. He soon earned enough to make his mother comfortable, and his truth and honesty made him respected by all who knew said Charles one evening, as they were sitting down to tea, and a plate of hot biscuit was smoking between a dish of sauce and a plate of smoking beef neatly shaved, mother, the best ability of Spcictj-.

On such a horse the female figure is properly devel- oped and its beautiful proportions brought fiction, with no longer the fear that the whole rider and alb- would fall to pieces whore the screws that hold it together become loosened. The paces of the lady's horse should bo long, rather than short, that the rider may bend gracefully forward, and not be jerk- ed backward "at every step, in the most vulgar manner 'imaginable. A lady Irian must never appear in a hurry it is unbecoming and ungeuteel, and shows plebeian blood find many instances are on record, that a horse knows a lady or gentleman at sight, as well as most of us.

GOOD NEWS FOR there s any truth in the following statement, clipped from the New York Evening Post, consumption may be made a less terribla scourge of humanity than it been in past times Recent experiments made by (he French physician, Dr. Curie, reveal a very powerful new remedy, and a remarkable illustration of the cardinal principal of homoeopathy. The plant called sun- dew (drostra will deTel- ope'tubercles in the lungs of a cat and cause the phthisical symptoms of the lym- phatic degeneration in the most marked degree, if administered steadily for a short period At the same time regular does of from four to .twenty drops of the alcho- llc tincture of the same plant will infalli- bly cure tubercles in a human patient if begun in the earlier stages of pulmonary consumption.

No man can ever hope to hold in a running horse by pulling evenly upon tlie bit he might just as well try to lift himself over .the fence by pulling at his boot straps. It can't be did. When a horse's head is pulled to one side ho is compelled to so arrange his legs that they will probably balance he cannot run therefore my advice would be, if a horse is running away, or if he re- fuses to go, pull tightly on the rein, and force the horse to describe a circle for an indefinite period ot timo, after which, are actuated by a sense of duty, largo majority the Sabbath a day pleasure arid fashionable re'soit, going church because it is popular. and schisms are likewise popu- lar and must be endured, although many of them are the offspring-of the; principles that curtain our world m darkness, -while bigotry and prejudice are the sentinels that keep watch over the public Whenever the truths of science sends a druggist, reqntstcd me to bring you some shirts to miike.' 1 I am sure I'm much obliged to him, for I have found -it very hard to get lately.' 1 And he told me to bring you a few things in the way of tea and sugar.
