Then the visions of that Shore to which youth and age Are Fields evermore with new Lite and woul amazing. Will but be reality. Something. Translated from the methodist from Liana Anderson. It will be said the eldest of five a others i will Benefit the world in some Way be it Ever so Humble. If it is Only Well Dono then it will stand and always remain something. I will make bricks for men cannot do without them and that will be doing some but that is doing very said the second brother it is just As bad As doing nothing. It is a tedious labor of the hands that can just As Well be done with a machine. It would be much better to be a Mason which would be something and that is what i am going to be. That is an occupation in which becomes a citizen and have his own Flag and own cow. If i am prosperous i can have Good companions. I will be addressed As master Aud my wife As mistress. That is what i Call being that is nothing at said the third brother for it does not belong to the aristocracy and there Are Many classes in a City that stand above the you can become a very Good sort of a Man at that Busi Ness it is True but if you ure Only a master Yon will always belong to the simple people. No indeed 1 know a better employment than that. I will be an architect that is an artistic and intellectual profession and by Means of it i can make great attainments in knowledge. I must begin in an Humble Way yes must commence As an apprentice go about with a Cap on though i am accustomed to a silk hat buy Beer and Brandy for the journeymen and have them Call me an of which would be very humiliating to me. But i will consider this a Mere farce until 1 become a Journeyman myself. Then i will be Able to do what 1 please. I shall Register my name As a student of the great facade my take lessons in drawing and so 1 will finally become an architect. That is it is i shall be a Nobleman and an aristocrat Aud have a great Long title to my name. I will build More and More just As others have done before me. Now in t that some thing you can depend but i Don t consider it anything said the fourth brother. I will be no copyist but a a Man More skillful than All of you put together i shall invent a new style of architecture and originate building plans which will be in Harmony with the climate the nationality of the country the material and the develop ment of the age but the climate will effect the material of which Yon build until finally it will be Worth said the fifth brother. The nationality and developed meet of the age must change too just As youth does. I see plainly that not any of you is going to be something at least not what he expects to be. But do As you please i will not make a dunce of myself. I will hold Back from Active life Aud reflect on what Yon do. Thing to criticise cd everything. There is always some that shall be my profession truly that is and that is what the fifth brother became. The peo ple said of has a Good head but he does but he passed for something. These Are Short histories children yet they will never come to an end while the world stands. Now How do you make that out but what became of the five Brothers did any of them Ever come to something just listen and you shall hear of their adventures. The eldest brother who made bricks discovered that that from every new Brick there rolled out a Little Copper Coin. But when be put a Good Many of them together behold they became a White Silver Dollar. And when Ever he went to the Shoemaker s or the Baker s or the Butcher s they were All witling to take the Bright pieces of Money. But the bricks that broke White being burned were of no use. Of no use yes a Little. Margaretha an old woman wanted to build a Little cottage. So the eldest brother gave her a Good Many broken bricks and a few whole stones with them. He had a Good heart you see though he was Only a Brick maker. But the old lady s cottage was As Small a one As and the Straw roof could have been much better Laid but yet margay Etha and her Little girl were Well protected from the cold Aud storm. Aug you could look from Thi Little door fur out Over the sea whose Waves washed up against Tho Dyke of that the Salt Spray flew All Over that Little cottage. But it is standing yet though the Man that gave the brickbats and stouts to make it with has been Long dead and forgotten. The second brother could build Well for he was a Good Mason. Once he went off into a foreign country to travel and he returned he built one new House after another he Hud finished nearly a whole they were very Ham Kome and gave the City a splendid appearance. When lie had erected a Groat Many the houses went to work and built a Beautiful Little Oue for him. Bat How could the houses make another think a moment and you will see for yourself. It was Small Aud Tho re were no planks in it. But As he danced with his Bride upon the Clay floor it became As White As Ivory and a Lovely Flower bloomed out from every Stone in the Wall. You can imagine How Beautiful it looked. That was a neat Little House and a Happy Man and wife the Flag floated before the door and All the journeymen cried out Hurrah that was then the second brother died and that too Means some thing. Now comes the third brother Tho architect who was first an apprentice and had to Wear an old Greasy eur around the streets but who finally Becane a great Noble Man. The new Street built up by his brother was name after this one and the finest House in it belonged to him that was something As it was also something to have a great Long title to his name. His children were called the Rich Man s children and when he died people knew that his widow was wealthy and belonged to the Nobili t was something the dead Man s name stood on the Street Corner and was in everybody s Routh As the name of the Street. Truly that was something next follows Tho fourth in tended to discover something new and out of the Usua order of things lie built a High flight of stairs ant fell Down and broke his neck. But there was a Aveai funeral when he was buried. Banners and of Tower and music contributed their part to the ceremonies. Three Long orations were made Over his body and if he Couk of heard How they flattered him it would certainly have made him feel very great there was a Monument erected at ins All that was something. Now he was dead and buried like his three Brothers who had gone before him. But the last of the Brothers the thinker outlived All the rest. This was very Gratifying to him for he thus had the last word Aud it was always his greatest desire to have the last word. He had a Good mind and everybody gave him credit for considerable Talent. But at last his hour came to die. He breathed away his life and ascended to the Gate of heaven. Here the souls of the dead always come up two to Gether. The fifth brother walked slowly up in company with another soul which also wished to be Aud this was old Margaretha from the Little hut Behink the Dyke this strange thing must take place for the Sake of a said the talker. Who Are you my Good woman do you also want to enter Aud the old woman bowed her head and body for she thought it was it. Peter himself who was talking to her. I am an old woman without any friends. Everybody used to Call me old Margaretha from the hut behind Tho now Tell me what you did when you lived on the i have done nothing on the Earth not Iho least that can admit me through this Gate. It is Only favor it All kindness by which 1 was allowed to come come Tell me How you said he by the Way of passing time for they had to stand a great while by the Gate. Well that is something i Cau t Tell you. I was sick and infirm during All the latter years of my life and it was almost More Almu 1 could endure to crawl out of my bed and go out into the cold Aud Snow. It was a hard moan the last Oue 1 spent on Earth. But yet 1 survived it. For several Days it was very Culm but it was bitter cold. As your highness no doubt Well re members. The ice stretched out As tar As you could Aud All the people came out of the City to slide Aud skate on Tho sea. There was Sleigh Ina too on the ice and dancing and music. All this i could hear from my Little room. While it was yet Twilight and the Moon had not begun to Shine very Bright i Lay on my Straw bed looking ont through my Little window i saw a Strunge White Cloud Rise up far off Over the sue and stand Between the sea and sky. Tho longer 1 Lay there tid watched it and the Black spot in the Middle of it the larger they both became. Aud now 1 knew Well enough what it was for 1 am old and experienced. However such times Don t often come. Twice in my Long life i have seen this certain indication of the High Spring tide coming on with an awful storm. Now 1 could not be mistaken Aud Boon it would overtake the people on the ice who were singing and skating Aud Sleigh ing in such High pie on the ice were attracted by the fire Aud they began to Glide up to the Dyke to save me from being burned to death. Not Oue was left behind they All came to Gether. I heard them coming but at the same of How it broke through the heard a hoarse Thunder if from booming Cannon. Then the tide de the ice High up and shattered it into Little but All the people reached the Dyke where the Hujus Aud Sparks Rose about me. I saw them All saved. But the fright and cold were too much for me. I could not stand so much and therefore 1 have come up to Trio Gav of heaven. 1 was told that it would be opened for Smirh a poor creature us 1 am and now i have to it Ulit to fit admitted Here i Don t deserve then the splendid Gale of heaven flow open Anil the Bright Angel led the old woman in. As she was milking through it a Straw fell from her clothing. It one that had been in Hir Humble bed which she had t on fire to save so Many lives. As the Straw dropped on floor of heaven it became Gold and thin unt Cri changing itself from Oue Bra Duful shape to another Tor .1 great while. See there that is want the old woman brought with said Tho Angel. What have you Golah j know too Well that you have done nothing Juii have Doie vol Hing you have not even made a single Brick i wish you could return to the Earth and do at much As that of course a Brick made by your hands would be of no great value but yet it would the Good that is something but you cannot re turn Aud alas i can do nothing for you.1 then the poor woman who used to live in Tho Little hut by the Dyke began to Pray for him. His said she gave me All the broke i bricks and stones with which 1 made my House and that was a Good Deal to do for a poor woman like Trie would you not be willing to consider All those Brick bats and stones As Oue Brick for this brother thit would be a great kindness and that is what to besides i thought this was the True Home of love and i can Only consent to a Oiver request in part. The brother whom you once considered so insignificant and whose honorable employment seemed so contemptible in your sight affords thee a gift. But that gift will Only prevent you from being drive from this Gate. You cannot enter Here without some Good of your own. To you shall be allowed to stand Here and reflect upon How you could improve your life if you had to live but remember you must stay Here until you have Lone so spoke the Angel. The last time i heard of the fifth brother he was still standing outside of the Gate of heaven and in my opinion he will have to stay there watch the Good people going in for when death took him away he whispered in his ear that it would never be possible for him in the future to work for god Bis fellow men or himself. To he who was going to be greater than All his Broth ers turned out to be the least of them and the humble1-1 and the kindest was the Only one who became something a new kind of dress i oils. A. Pleasant Paris in the Corrior dese Tats urns tells this Story a paper manufacturer has just invented a kind of impermeable paper suitable for goods its manner of employment is both simple and ingenious it consists n replacing by Small frames the hoops upon which Are Halloo used the petticoats of our indies. These newfangled engines Are covered with packing canvass upon which Vou Hutc Only to glue As of a common screen the newly invented paper. Thanks to this invention. When a lady wants a new dress her husband has no longer to distress himself with the disbursement of five or six Hundred francs for cuty Yards of velvet or thirty of moire and Ifju All in will have to do will be to buy five or Rolls of 12 sons paper and Send for Tho glue Man. This is As finite grand ideas. The father about to marry his daughter will not in obliged a Long time beforehand to bother himself about will limit himself to asking his wife on the Day before his wedding what paper shall we on to Emily " Nondieu my the Mother will reply hat ver you think seems to me that cent Pipor with a pretty Border you know then a Man will take a wife without he marriage contracts will stipulate that the father maw engages to paper hang Bis Pisser Laville for the first three years Cor try says the Only Temple of Rue Liberty in this world is the bar room of a country tin an institution where you May in off your Forral to with your boots Roll up you. with n ares and puff away fit your troubles with a pipe with it any fear that a Broomstick will draw your attention o the carpet or dark complexioned frowns remind you f the injurious effects of tobacco juice on the stove under despotism but to a Man who has once fed on democracy there is no spot in he world whore he can enlarge the area of Freedom with less fear of a insurrection than in the snug cozy Corner of a country bar room. I Ever saw. The window was very narrow and Low j the names Rose Over me then blazed around the window the door was so Short that Yon had to go in half Bent and finally broke through the Straw roof Foon the peo the whole City old Aud Young were gathered together j Hearth. The parlor will do for who Are brought Aud who would there be to warn them if no Oue of their 1 a number saw and knew what t had seen and understood my heart a fluttered strongly bit i suddenly became stronger than i had been for some time. I got out of the bed and reached the window but i could go no far ther. Still i could raise the window i could see the men gliding and whirling about on the ice i saw the flags flying and heard the boys cry out Hurrah Hur Young ladies Aud Young men Sang heartily As they skated along together. But the White Cloud Rose higher Aud higher and in Tho Middle of it there was the big Black sack. I called out As loud As i could but they could not hear it was too far off. But the storm must soon get to where they Are and when it comes it will break up the ice and destroy All that Are on they could not hear my screams and i could not get to them. Of that i could bring them to Shore thought i to myself. Then the lord gave me a Happy thought it was to set my Straw bed on fire Aud Burn up my Little House sooner than have All those people destroyed by the fearful storm. I touched the bed with a lighted taper saw the red flames Blaze up. And managed to reach icy door. But i could go no t had to lie.
