Quot bad enough Quot was waa tha reply of Tea companion to whom the remark waa addressed. Quot neighbor Thompson appears to be running Down Bill pretty fast. I can remember the time when everything around Hie Little place waa trim and Quot it is quite the contrary now Quot returned the Farmer. Quot House out buildings and grounds All show the went of the master s care. I am afraid Thompson is on the downward Quot he always appears to be a steady industrious Man Quot rejoined the second Pesker. Quot i have a pair of boots on my feet this very moment of Hie make and they have done me Good Quot i have generally employed him for myself and family Quot was the reply Quot and i must confess that he in a Good Workman but nevertheless i believe i shall step into Jack Smith s this morning and order a pair of boots for which i stand in need. I always make it a Rule never to patronize those who appear to be running behind hand. There is generally some risk in helping those who do not help Quot very True and As my wife desires me to see about a pair of shoes for her this morning i will follow your example and Call upon Smith. He is no great favorite of mine however an Idle quarrelsome . Quot and yet be seems to in getting ahead in the world Quot answered the Farmer Quot and i am willing to give him a lift. But i have an errand at the Butcher s. Step in with me for a moment. I will not detain at the Butcher s they met the neighbor who had been the subject of their previous conversation. He certainly presented rather a shabby appearance and in his Choice of meet there was a regard to Economy which did not escape the notice of Farmer White. After a few passing remarks the poor Shoemaker took his departure and the Butcher opened his account Book with a somewhat anxious air saying As he a barged the bit of meet Quot i believe that it is time test neighbor Thompson and i came to a Short accounts make Long friends ii Quot got no time to lose i should say Quot remarked the Farmer. Quot indeed have you heard of any trouble neighbor White. Quot no. I have heard nothing but a Man has the use of his own eyes you know and i never Trust any one with my Money who is evidently going Down Quot quite right and i will Send in my Bill this evening. I Here Only delayed on account of the sickness which the poor Man has had in Bis family All Winter. I suppose he must have run behind hand a Little but still i must take care of number Quot speaking of Thompson Are you Quot remarked a bystander who appeared to take an interest in the conversation. Quot going Down Hill is he i must look out for myself then. He owes me quite s snug sum for leather. I did intend to give him another month s credit but on the whole i guess the Money would be safer in my own Here the four worthies separated each with his mind filled with the affairs of neighbor Thompson the probability that be was going Down Bill and the Best Way of giving him a push. In another part of the Little Village similar scenes were passing. Quot i declare Quot exclaimed mra. Bennett the dressmaker to a favorite assistant As she hastily withdrew her head from the window whence she had been gazing on the basses by. Quot if there is not mrs. Thompson the Shoemaker a wife coming up the Steps with a parcel in her hand. She want to engage me to do her Spring work. I suppose but i think it would be a venture. Every one Saya they Are running Down Hill and it is a Chance if i Ever get my Quot she has always paid up promptly Quot was tha reply. Quot True Bat that was in the Days of her Prosperity. I cannot afford to run any tha a Tarance of mrs. Thompson prevented further conversation. She was evidently surprised at the re fuss of mrs. Bennett to do any work for her but a a Graat pressure of business was pleaded a an excuse there was Noth ing to be said and she soon took another application proved equally in Sioea Sofol. It was at Raaga How Busy the Village dressmakers bad suddenly become. On her Way Home the poor Aho Makei e wife met the teacher of a Small school in the neighbourhood where two of her Ohil Dren attended. Quot Ahl Are. Thompson i am glad to use Yon Quot waa the salutation. Quot i was about calling al f Ltd Hio.

The half Quarter if i manage right Bat it jul never do to go on in this a Little Dis composed by her interview with the teacher mra. Thompson tapped into a neighbouring grocery to Purchase some trifling article of family stores. Quot i have a Little account against it be convenient for or. Thompson to Settle it this evening Quot asked the civil shopkeeper As he in aged the desired article. Quot is it the usual time for settling Quot waa again the surprised inquiry. Quot Well no not exactly but Money is very tight just now and i am anxious to get in All that is due me. In future i intend keeping Short accounts. There is your Little Bill if you would like to look at it. I will Call around this evening. It is but a Small Quot thirty dollars is no Small aum to us just thought mrs. Thompson As she thoughtfully pursued her Way toward Home. Quot it seems strange that All these payments must be met now while we Are struggling to recover from the heavy expenses of the Winter. I cannot under Send her perplexity was increased upon finding her husband with two Bills in his hand and a countenance expressive of anxiety and concern. Quot look Mary Quot he said As she entered Here Are two unexpected Calls for Money one from the doctor and the other Frona the dealer in leather from whom i purchased my last Stock. They Are both very urgent for immediate payment although they have always been willing to wait a few months until i could make arrangements to meet their claims. But misfortunes never come single and if a Man Ever gets a Little behind hand troubles seem to pour in upon Quot just so Quot replied the wife. Quot the neighbors seem to think we Are going Down Hill and every one is ready to give us a push. Here Are two More Bills for you one from the grocer and the other from the reply was prevented by m Knock at the door and the appearance of a lad who presented a neatly folded paper and disappeared. Quot the Butcher e account As i live Quot exclaimed the astonished Shoemaker. Quot what is to be done Mary so much Money to i paid out and very Little coming in for some of my customers have left me although my work has Given satisfaction. If i could Only have As much employment As usual and the usual rates allowed me i should soon satisfy All these Cis ims but to meet them now is impossible and the acknowledgement of my inability will Send us still further on the downward Quot we must do our Best and Trust in Providence Quot was the consolatory remark of Bis wife As a second Knolt a at the door aroused the fear that another claimant was about to appear. But the benevolent countenance of Uncle Joshua a rare but Ever Welcome visitor presented itself. A bating himself in the comfortable chair which Mary hastened to hand him he said in his somewhat eccentric but Friendly manner Quot Well Good folks i understand that the world does not go quite As Well with you As formerly. What is the trouble Quot Quot there need be no trouble sir Quot was the reply Quot if men would not try to add to the afflictions that the almighty sees to be necessary for us. The Winter was a trying one. We met with sickness and misfortunes which we endeavoured to Bear with patience. All would now go Well if those around me were not determined to push me in the downward Quot but Here lies the difficulty Friend Thompson. This is a selfish world. Everybody or at least a Graat majority care Only for number one. If they see a poor neighbor going Down Hill their first thought is whether it will effect their own interests and provided they can Sahara themselves thay care not How soon he goes to the Bottom. The Only Way is to keep up appearances. Show no sign of going behind hand and All will be Well with Quot very True Uncle Joshua but How is this to be done Bills that i did not sex Peot to a called to meat for the next three months Ara pouring upon me. My Best customers Sre leaving me for a More fortunate rival. In abort i am on tha Brink of ruin and nought but a Miracle can save Quot i Miracle thai is very Smily Wron then i ims gins my Good Friend. What is the amount of these data which Prasa so heavily upon Yon and Bow soon in the common coarse of events could you die Labarga them Quot Quot thay do not exceed one Hundred Dol Lars Quot replied tha Shoemaker Quot and with tha uaral run of work i could make it All Hight in Threa or four Quot we will say six Quot was tha Quot i will Advance you for six months. Pay every cent you owe and Ith the remainder the Money make Aoma slight and Diioia or improvement to your Bouse a adrift Avary Thitoff about Tea grounds in Iti urn or. A Iii yer a few weeks and was Rill see what of Lect it Baa on our worthy neighbors. To no avar mind thanking me i an Only trying an Asper meat on Hamas Natara. I How Yoo of old and have no doubt that my Money is Safe in your weeks passed by. Tha advice of Uncle Joshua had been strictly followed and the change in tha Siloam ser s prospects was indeed wonderful. He was now spoken of a one of the most thriving men of the Village and Many marvellous stories were told to account for the sudden alteration in Bis affairs. It was generally agreed that a Distant relative had bequeathed to blk j0aoy, which had entirely relieved him from Bia so aviary difficulties. Old customers and mail ones crowded in upon him. They had never before realized the Beauty and durability of Hila work. The polite butchers selected to to Iasi Piezas of meal for his inspection As he in Ilaff a and was totally India firant As to tha time of payment. The dealer in leather idled to inform him that his Best hides awaited his orders. The Lesber accompanied his children Hoine to Tea and spoke in High terme of their improvement pronouncing them As her Best scholars. The dressmaker found herself free from the great press of work and in a Friendly note expressed her desire to oblige mrs. Thompson in any Way in her Power. Quot just As i expected Quot exclaimed Uncle Joshua rubbing Bis hands exulting by As the grateful Shoemaker called upon him at the expiration of six months with the Money Woltch had been loaned him in the hour of need. Quot just As i expected. A strange world they Are ready to push a Man up if he seems to be ascending and just is ready to gush him Down if the fancy his face is turned that Way. In future neighbor Thompson let everything around you Wear an air of Prosperity and you will be sure to Prosper. And with a satisfied air Uncle Joshua placed the Money in his pocket Book ready to meet some other claim upon his Iran Volence whilst he whom he bad thus befriended with Light Steps and cheerful countenance returned to his Happy Home. Biath. Simply told but very touching is the following from Quot autumn holidays Quot by the Quot country up you know this Peculiar feeling i speak to men in Middle age. To Bear up As manfully As you can putting a Good face on things trying to persuade yourself that you have done very fairly in life after All and All of a sudden to feel that merciful self deception fail you and just to break Down to own Bow bitterly beaten and disappointed you Are add what a sad and wretched failure you have Sade of life there is no one in the world we All try so hard to cheat and delude As ourself. How we hoodwink that individual and try to make him look at things through Rose coloured spectacles like the poor Little girl in or. Dickens s touching Story we make believe very much. But sometimes we Are not Able to make believe. The illusion goes. The Bare unvarnished truth forces itself upon us and we eee what miserable Little wretches we Are How poor and Petty Are our ends in life and what a Dull weary round it All is. Tou remember the poor old half pay officer of whom Charles Lamb tells us. Fee was not to be disillusioned. He asked you to band him the Silver sugar tongs in so confident a tone that though your eyes testified that it was but a Teaspoon and that of Britannia Metal a certain spell was cast Over your mind. But rely on it Boih that half starved Veteran kept up in this Way before the people he would often break Down when be was Slone. It would suddenly Rush upon him what a i etched old Humbug he was. Is it sometimes so with All of As we Are none of us half satisfied with ourselves. We know we Are poor creatures though we try to persuade ourselves that we Are tolerably Good. At least if we have any sense this is so. Tet i greatly envied a Man whom i passed in the Street yesterday a stranger a Middle aged person. His nose was elevated in the air he bad a supercilious Demeanour expressive of superiority to his fellow creatures and contempt for them. Perhaps he was a Prince and so entitled to look Down on Ordinary Folk. Perhaps he was a Bagman. The few princes i have Ever seen had nothing of his uplifted Kupect. But what a Fine thing it would be to a Able always to delude yourself with the belief that you Ara a great and important Parson to be always quite satisfied with yourself and your position. There Are people who while repeating certain words in tha Litany Feal a if it waa a Mera form signifying nothing to Call themselves m$0rabu a inner. Thera Are some who say these words sorrowfully from their very heart feeling that thay express god s truth. Thay know what Waak silly sinful beings they Ara they Knaw what a poor thing they Bava Mada of Ufa with All their lord work and All their toning and scheming. In fact thay Chi Aten disappointed Down. Tha High Hopes with which thay started Ara blight and Wara blighted Long ago. Thay think with a bitter laugh of their Early dream of Eminence of Success of Bap Pinassi and some Limea after holding up for awhile As Well As they could thay feel they Oan do it no longer. Their heart fail them. Thy sit Down and give up Altoga Ber. Giam men and Good men have done it. It is a Comfort to Many a poor fallow to think of Elijah Baiao and sick at Baartz a Ittig Down Andar a a Rabby Bash at ave a it a Lii he Iha Teri Dart and a Aliar thira a was no More leh and that a Coald hot no Mora. Thank god that the Varsa is in Tea Bibla. Quot but he himself weal a Day a Roamey into the wilderness and came and Sal Down under a Juniper tree and be requested for himself that he might die and said. It is enough now o lord take away my life for i am not better than my i thought of Elijah in tha Wilder Neia the other night. I saw the great Prophet again. For human nature is the same in a Grest Prophet As in a poor Little angry boy. At nine o clock on saturday evening i heard pitiful subdued sobs and crying oat Side. I know the kind of thing that Meana some one fairly beaten not angry not bitter smashed. I opened the front door and found a Little boy ten years old sitting on Tea Steps crying. I asked him what was the matter f see the thin White 1ittiigr2ij, Lettla face. Would Bava slunk Awa i if Lovold a Plai Alj top Jim by his Case beyond Nodi a Pitt brought him in and eel him on a chair in the lobby and he told Hie Story. He a a bundle of Sticks in a rag sack firewood. At three o clock that afternoon he had come out to sell them. His Mother waa a poor Washer woman in the most wretched part of the town his father was killed a fortnight ago by falling from a scaffold. A bad walked a Long Way through the streets about three Miles. He had tried Sll the afternoon to sell his Sticks but had old Only half Penny Worth. He was lame poor Little Man from a sore leg. But managed to carry Hie heavy Load. But at last going Down some poor area Stair in the dark be fell Down a whole flight of Steps and Hurt his sore leg so that he could not walk and also got a great Cut on his forehead. He had got just the half Penny for his poor Mother he had been going about with his Burden for six hours with nothing to eat. But he turned his fisc homewards carrying his Sticks and struggled on about a Quarter of a mile and then he broke Down. He could go no farther. In the dark cold night he est Down and cried. It was not the crying of one who hoped to attract attention it was the crying of Flat despair. The first thing which i did which did not take a moment was to thank god that my door Steps had been his Juniper tree. Then i. Remembered that the first thing go d did when Elijah broke Down was to give him something to eat. Yes. It is a great thing to keep up physical and the Little Man had had no food since three o clock till nine. So there come brought by kind hands not mine several great slices of bread and butter Jam Eiren was added and a cup of warm Tea. Tha spirit began to come a Little into the child and he thought be could manage to get Home if we would let him leave his Sticks till monday. We asked him what he would have got for his Sticks if he had sold them All nine Pence. Under the circumstances. It appeared that a profit of a Hundred per cent was not exorbitant. So be received eighteen Pence which he stowed away somewhere in his rags and the sack went away and returned with All the Sticks emptied out. Finally an old Gray coat of rough Tweed came and was put upon the Little boy and carefully buttoned forming a capital great coat. And for Smuch As his trousers were most unusually Reg god a pair of such appeared and being wrapped up were placed in the sack along with a Good Deal of bread and How the heart of the child had by this time revived he thought he could go Home nicely. And Heving very briefly asked the father of the fatherless to care for him i beheld him Limp away in the dark. All this is supremely Little to talk about. But it was quite a different thing to eee. To look at the poor starved Little face and the dirty band like a claw to think of ten years old to think of one s own children in their warm Beds to think what All this would have been to one s self As a Little child. Of if i had a four leaved Shamrock what a turn Over there should be in this world when the Little Man went away i came Back to my work. I took up my pen and tried to write but i could not. I thought i Law Many human beings besides Elijah in Tea Esse of that child. I tried to enter into the feeling it was Only too easy of that poor Little thing in Bis utter despair. It was enough to carry about the heavy bundle hour after hour and to sell Only tha Halfpenny Worth. But it was dread Ful it after tumbling Down stairs to find be was not Able to walk and to Atill be Trug gling to carry Back his Load to his bars Boms which was two Miles Distant from this a pot. And St last to sit Down in misery on the step in the dark night Sti inned. A would have been quite Happy if he had got Nin inca. God help Bim it when i was a boy t remember How a certain Parson who embittered my life in those Days was wont to say As though it summed up All Tea Virtues that such a person was a Man who looked St both Side of a shilling before spending it. It is such a sight As tha Lyttia boy on tha Steps that of Zaltas one do the like that helps Oak to understand tha Power thera is in a shilling. But Many human beings who Oak give a shilling rather than Teka it. Aia is really Bateu As the Little to they too Bate to their a filled we of matter whar. Perhaps poetry Par Bapa Uiato physics Par blips Bagacina Ai titles perhaps sermons. A hey thought they would find a Market and sail these at a great profit but thay found none.

In this delightful condition of mind and body he is enjoined to keep quite still and put on a a Graf expression As if expressions were As easy to pot on As gloves.
