She wended her way to the theatre, where she was met by the conductor, who led her to the grepn room.

Soon the orchestra commoncad tho overture, and her excitement increased Then the conductor went before the I curtain, and informed the audience that one of the sinpers was ill, and of Rosi- "na'e appearance in her place.

And still ilie death match goes on. Is there any way to prevent it Why, certain ly. Drunkards prow from ujc.ilt'rate drinkers, and moderate drinkers from the untaught, or wrongly educated children of our homes Thpre is the point where the stop should be put on, and that is in thehouic. Every parent is responsible for tho intemper- ance of hia child, if he has not by es- ampie and precept, done everything possible to prevent it. If parents would take as much pains to form a pure, healthful taste in their they now take, truly though sometimes unconsciously, to form a taste for stimulants, wo should see fewerenteriiitr the path that leads to the drunkaad's grave. TITO Rcmebor that all questions have two side one is the right side, and tlu other the wronsr tide one is the side of juslice. the other injustice. If you (ake the right Fi'de, the just side, ulti- mately men, however much they may may oppose nnd revile you, will come to your support. Earth, with all its powers, will work with you and for you, heaven is pledged to conduct you to complete success. If you take the other side, there is no power in earth or heaven that can lead you through successfully, because it is appointed in the counsels of heavon that justice, and truth, alone can prevail.

A cheerful face is nearly as good for an invalid, as healthy weather. Young man, you can go up lull as fast as you please, but down hill slow. If there is a msn who thinks that it is an easy job to be honest, just let him try it once. The man whose -sole ambition is to win applause of the world, is sure to be disappointed, whether he wins or lotes Through woe we ore taught to reflect, and we gather the honey of worldly wisdom not from flowers, but from thorns. We touch not a wire but it vibrates in eternify, and there is not a voiee reports not at the throne of heaven. Truth never need be in a hurry, but a ho inuet keep all the time on the jump; a lazy lie soon tires itself out, and ends in confusion. Children that are rcmarkaBla for what they know at five years old, are more remarkable at twenty, five, for what they don't know. The highest point outward things can bring us to is the contentment of the mind, with which no estate can be poor, which all estates will bo miser- able At Shurbrooke, Canada, a few days since, a man left his little child in a barn where there was a bottle of whis- ky. The child drank it and died soon afterwards. The blessing of a house is piety. The honor of a house is hospitality. The ornament of a house is cleanliness. The happiness of a house is contentment. Most persons are particularly tpheful against those foibles in others which they themselves have. They remind us of a uinnkuy scratching; and gnnnuig at the mimic monkey in the glass.
