Spend this Lime m the Way most to yourself. Now i shall bind you True to her Promise she retired to her room and turned the key in the door. After spending perhaps half an hour in form ing her plans for study she Drew up a table placed her books before her prepared pen and paper and commenced with much enthusiasm. Scarcely was the pen dipped in the Ink when there was a trampling of Little feet along the Hall and a loud pounding on the chamber door. Mamma Mamma i cannot find my and is going out with me to slide go to Amy daughter Mamma is Busy i Amy is Busy too and says she can t leave the upon this the child began to cry. The Easi est Way for mrs. James to Settle the difficulty and indeed the Only Way was to go and Hunt up the missing articles. Then a Parley must be held with Frank to induce him to wait for his sister and the Little girl s tears must be dried and Little hearts must be set before the children were sent out to play and a Little lec Ture Given Loo on the necessity of putting things where they belonged. Time slipped i a Way and mrs. James Retif Jned to her study her watch told her that on hour was she quietly resumed her talk and was getting i Well under again when for heavier step was heard and her door was once More tried. Now or. James must be admitted. Said he do come and put on a string for me. There is not a bosom in my in order. I am in a hurry. I ought to have been Down town an hour mrs. James for her work Basket and followed him. Thei tape was sewed then a Button needed fastening then Asp in his Glove must be mended. Mrs. James took his Glove and stitched away at it with a smile lurking in the Corners of her Mouth. I what Are you laughing All inquired her to think How famously your plan replied she. I exclaimed he was this your Mudy hour i am sorry but what can a Man do to cannot go Down town without a shirt certainly replied his wife quietly. When her Liege lord was fairly equipped mrs. James returned to her room again. About half an hour remained to her of which she determined to make the most. Once More was her place found and her pen dipped in the Ink when there was another disturbance in the entry. Amy had returned with the baby from his walk. She took him into the Nursery to get him asleep. Now the Only Rorri in the House where mrs. James could have a fire to herself was the room adjoining the Nursery. The Ordinary noise of did not disturb her but the very extraordinary one which master i Charley Felt called upon to make when he was fairly upon his Back in the Cradle was rather More than could be borne by most mothers with out seriously disturbing the train of their thoughts. Mrs. Jamas closed her Book until the storm should be overcast. Soon after quiet was restored the children came in from sliding crying with cold ringers. Just As the dinner Bell rang mrs. James closed her Book in Des pair. 1 How did you succeed with your studies this film morning 1" inquired or. James did not hinder you i no yours was Only one of a dozen inter i of Well you must not be discouraged you cannot expect to succeed the first time. I persist in it until the family learn that if they want anything of you they must come at some other j the second Day of trial happened to be a one and As the morning was very dark i Bridget overslept her and breakfast was an hour later. This last hour mrs. James could i not recover. Eleven o clock came and her morning work was but half done. With a mind disturbed and depressed she left things in the suds As they were and retired punctually to her study. She found however that ii was to your promo for one month at the of that time if it has proved a total failure try some other when shall i begin 1 to Morrow came. James had selected hours before dinner As Tho most convenient her arid As the family dined at one o clock to her morning work be used and in room at eleven. Hearty a Hor to accomplish this the appoint her work half done yet impossible to fit her attention upon anything which required thought. Neglected duties haunted her As ghosts do the guilty conscience. Finding she was really doing nothing with her and wishing not to lose the morning wholly she commenced a letter. Bridget came to her door before he had written half a Page. What shall we have for dinner a am there Ain t no marketing come and you did not Tell me what to have some we Han t got Well i will Send out for now there was no one to Send but Amy and mrs James knew with a die put away her letter and went into the Nursery. Amy or. James has forgotten the m irked ing. I wish you would run Over to the provi Sion store and order some beef steaks i will stay with baby. Amy none too Well pleased to be sent on this errand. She remarked she must first change her be As Quick As possible said mrs. James for i am particularly engaged Amy neither obeyed nor disobeyed but Man aged to take her own time in reality though without any direct determination to do to. James thinking she might get along a sentence or two in the Nursery took the German Book in but to this arrangement Charley would by Means consent. Mamma must show him the Kittens in the Book whether there or was All to amused he must half her second Day s time of trial was gone when Amy came in and w Ith a sigh mrs. James returned to her room. Before one o clock she had been called 4own to the Kitchen twice on some important business relating to the Din Ner and for this Day not one entire Page of a letter had been written. On the third morning she Rose Early made every provision for dinner and for the Comfort of the family which she deemed necessary and elated by Success in Good spirits and with Good courage she entered her study precisely at ele Ven o clock. Now she was to have a Fine time of it. I her books were opened and a hard Les son summoned to the conflict. Scarcely had she read a line when she heard the door Bell ring. I somebody wishes to see you in the Parlour mrs. Tell i am engaged i i told them you were to Home a am and they gave Rne their names but i did not exactly mrs. James was obliged to go. To smile when she Felt sober to be social when her thoughts were elsewhere. Her friends How Ever seemed to find her agreeable for they made a Long Call and when they Rose to go others came. So in the most unsatisfactory chit Chat All this morning went. On the next Day or. James invited company to Tea and mrs. James was obliged to give up the morning to preparing for it and did not enter her study. On the next Day following she was obliged to keep her bed with sick head Adie and on saturday Amy having extra work to do the charge of the baby devolved upon her. Thus passed the first week. True to her Promise mrs. James patiently persevered for a month in her efforts to secure to herself this fragment of her broken time with what Success the week s history can Tell. With its close closed the month of december. Be ing particularly occupied on the last Day of the old year in getting ready for the Morrow Sifes rival it was near the last hour of the Day when she made her Good night s Call in the Nursery. She went o the crib to look at baby there he Lay fast asleep in his innocence and Beauty. She kissed his Rosy Cheek gently and stroked softly his Golden hair and pressing his Little dimpled hands within hers she Drew the warm covering More closely around him carefully tucking it in then stealing one More kiss she left him to his slumbers and sat Down on her daughter s bed she was also sweetly asleep with her Dolly hugged close to her. Her Mother smiled but soon it seemed As if Graver and sadder thoughts filled her mind As indeed they did. She was thinking of her disappointed to her not Only the past month but the past year seemed to have been one of fruitless Effort it seemed to her broken and even Ier hours of religious meditation had been encroached upon and distracted. She had accomplished nothing that she could see but keep her House and family her saddened thoughts even this seemed to have been but indifferently done. Yearnings for something better than this she was conscious of. What did she need then to see some of the results of her life work to be conscious of some Unity of purpose and some heaving to Gether of these life threads now so broken and single she Felt she was quite sure no desire to shrink from duty however Humble but she sighed for some comforting Assurance of what was duty. Her pursuits conflicting As they did with her tastes seemed to her frivolous. She Felt there was some better Way of living which she had failed of discovering. As she leaned Over her child her tears now fell fast upon that Young brow. How earnestly wished that Mother that she could shield her child from the disappointments and self reproaches and mistakes from wifi ice she was then suffering that the Little one might take up life where she could give it to her mended by All her own experience. It would Liao been a great Comfort could she have Felt that she could have fought the Battle for both. Yet she knew that it could not be so that we must All learn for ourselves what Are those things which make for our peace. With tears still in her eyes she gave the Good night to the child and with soft step entered the adjoining room and there fairly kissed out the old year on another Chubby Cheek which nestled among the pillows then she sought her Awn rest. Soon she found herself in a singular place. She was traversing a vast Trees were visible save those which skirted the Distant horizon on their tops rested a Wreath of Golden Clouds. Before her travelling towards that Distant Light was a female. Little children were about her sometimes in her arms and sometimes at her Side. As he journeyed on she busied herself caring for them. Now she soothed them when she taught them How to travel and again she warned them of the and stumbling blocks in the Way. She helped them Over the one and taught them to be wary of the other. She talked to them of that Golden Light which she kept constantly in View and which the seemed hastening with her Little flock. But what was most remarkable was that All unknown to her two Golden Clouds floated above her on which re posed two Angels. Before each was a Golden Book and a pen of Gold. One Angel with mild and Loving eyes peered constantly Over the right shoulder and the other Over the left they followed her from the rising to the setting of the Sun. They watched every word and look and deed no matter How trivial. When was Good the Angel Over the right shoulder with a glad Emile wrote it Down in his Golden Book when evil however trivial the Angel Over the left shoulder wrote it Down in his Book. Then he kept Bis sorrowful eyes on her until he found penitence for the evil upon which he dropped a tear upon his record and blotted it put and both Angels rejoiced. To the lookers on it seemed As if the traveler did Little which was worthy of such careful record. Sometimes she did but Bathe the weary feet of her children and the Angel Over the right shoulder wrote it Down. Sometimes she did but wait patiently to lure Back some Little truant who had taken a step in the wrong direction and the Angel Over the right shoulder wrote it Down. Sometimes with her eyes fixed upon the Golden horizon she became so intent upon her own Progress As to let the Little pilgrims at her Side languish or stray then it was Angel Over the left shoulder who lifted the Golden pen and made the entry followed her with sorrow ing eases seeking to blot it out. If wishing to hasten on her journey she left the Little ones behind it was the sorrowing Angel recorded her Progress. Now the observer Felt As she looked on that this was a faithful record and was to be kept to that journey s end. Those Strong clasps of Gold on those Goldfen books also impressed her with the belief that they were to be sealed for. A for a future opening. Her sym a ties were warmly excited for the traveler and with a beating heart she quickened Fier Steps that she might overtake her and Tell her Whit she had seen and entreat her to be watchful and faithful and patient to the end in her life s work for she had herself seen that its results would All be known when those Golden books should a clasped. That she must not think any duly which fell in her Way to do trivial for surely there was an Angel aver her right shoulder or one Over her left who would record it All. Eager to warn her of this she gently touched her. The traveller turned and she recognised or seemed to recognise herself. Startled and alarmed she awoke and found herself in tears. The Gray Light of morning struggled through the half open shutter the door was ajar and merry faces were peeping in. Wish you a Happy new year wish you a Happy new she returned the merry greeting she seemed to have entered on a new existence she had found her Way through the mazes where she had been entangled and Light was. Now about her path. The Angel Over the right shoulder whom she had seen in her dream had assured her that her life work was bound up in that Golden Book and its final results would be known had assured her what was duty. Now she saw plainly enough what she had not seen before that while it was right and important for her to cultivate As fur As she could her own mind and heart it was equally right and equally important for her to perform faithfully All those Little household duties and cares on which the Comfort or virtue of her family depended. They had acquired a new dignity from the records of that Golden they could not be neglected a without danger. Sad thoughts and misgivings and ung ratified longings seemed All to have taken their flight with the old year and it was with a new Reso Lution a cheerful Hope and a Happy heart that she welcomed the new year. Lord Carlisle in his late addresses before the mechanics Institute of Leeds says that if one May judge from the taciturn Ity of Ameri cans they must be the most melancholy people in the world. His lordship seems to forget that taciturn Ity May Spring from reflection As Well As unhappiness. As a general thing the less a Man reads the More loquacious he is. Put a dozen ignoramuses in a room and they will Wrangle All night about the constitutionality of a put the same number of Sensi ble men in the same situation however and it will not be an hour before they will All be so absorbed by Bulwer or Scott that nothing will be visible of them but their standing collars. It is with men of it is with Drums the emptier they Are the More noise they make. Americans Are not More melancholy than any other people they Are Only More studious. A faithful is nothing like a faithful wife under god our weaker woe Lor this life depends on her. If she is responding your own sanguine spirit catches the infection but if she is full of Hope and Energy her smiles will cheer Yon in this world Prosperity and happiness depend chiefly on our wives. Let a Man marry a woman therefore equal to either who can adorn his riches or brighten his poverty and who under All circumstances will truly be his helpmate. He that would have his business Well done must either do it himself or see of it. I was once present whisk Young persons were warmly Jet of practical joking Esting debate the question seemed about to decided in its favor when a gentleman singularly melancholy and dejected air at once attracted our attention related the following Story in my Young Days i was remarkable for my fondness of practical joking even to such a de Gree that i never allowed a Good Opportunity to pass unimproved. My orphan Cousin Robert to whom i a fondly attached was a different nature from this. He was sober sedate and grave almost to a faulf., very thoughtful and very bashful. This stupidity As i called it was often a Cheek upon my natural gaiety and it was Seldom that i could induce him to join my Boyish ports Tho he sometimes did merely to Graif Verne. Poor Robert the Green turf of his on whose bosom the fairest Flowers that new eng land could boast of have blossomed withered and passed away to eternity leaving behind them impress of their covers his mouldering ashes. Yes Robert is dead and i am the unhappy cause of his untimely end the circumstances of which will serve to con Vince you of the Folly of practical it was Inte one evening in september that Robert and myself retired to our room to talk Over the exciting scenes of the Day for it was Early to be a re Julia and i Shiv for he one of she was sat beside Asfe of the room apparently at Book. Her fair hand Lovely her hair fell gracefully upon in Beautiful natural ringlets. She 40 a Cate wild Flower that had budded and Bloss under the shelter of a father s Shine of gladness and the Dews of affection had Ever lighted and cheered her Way. At length i gave the signal arid a loud rap was Given. She paused for a moment listened attentively and then laying Down her Book arose and approached the door. As she opened it the mask stepped bold in according to my directions. How shall i describe the scene that followed t even now i shudder to think of it instantly All earthly Hue fled from her face and with a piercing shriek she staggered Back a few paced and fell heavily on the floor. Quicker than lightning i sprang through the door Vay and Knelt at her Side. I grasped Hev wrist its Pul the night after the election and a Fine Holiday ceased it had been to us. I had just returned from a visit to some friends in the City and had of course brought with me Many curious things which Robert had never seen or heard i among them was a mask the use of which i explained to my unsophisticated Cousin who laughed and wondered Why people could to look horrible enough to Wear one. I was in my gayest mood just ready for adventure and seeing he was disposed to j fun of my mask i proposed an Experiment. What v exclaimed by Cousin you do not i tend to Wear it to bed do far trom i replied it is you should Wear the mask not i. J am quite ape enough without a very just remark he observed gravely. I had never seen him in a better humor and i thought it beat to unfold my plans at onco. At our next door lived a worthy gentleman with whose daughter my Cousin was already smitten. That very night As we passed by on our return from the Village he had called and Bode her Good night and received in return one of the i placed my hand upon her heart that also was still she was dead i recall Little else that took place that night. The domestics who slept in an adjoin ing room had been awakened by that terrible Shrek and came running in to learn the cause of the uproar i could not have spoken even had explanation been necessary. 1 was Over whelmed with grief and self condemnation. I could Only poin t at the lifeless form of poor Julia and the mask which Robert had torn from his once and asked to the floor. He stood giving at me with a cold vacant share riot Tod Well understood. More i cannot remember. Ten Days passed and i awoke from a raving delirium. I my first inquiry was for Robert. They led him to my bedside but of what a change i stretched out Ray clasped hands in an agony of grief and remorse to implore his forgiveness. He neither moved nor spoke but that same unmeaning Eta re drove Home to my heart the fearful conviction. Alas he a hopeless idiot fifteen years have elapsed since that never to be forgotten Era of my life. I never have i sweetest smiles from the happiest eyes and most never can forgive myself for having been tha charming lips i Ever beheld. I was his bosom cause to much misery though i have sought Friend and to me he always entrusted his be Aird Lor forgiveness on High. I never can Crete alas How Little have i deserved such con oo11 upon a mask without a shudder or hear its yet a always blushed when i spoke of denounced without alluding to my expert Julia. Some evil spirit i know not what else it could have been prompted me when i proposed to have a Little sport at her expense. My plans were these he was to dress himself in a suit of clothes to correspond with the mask which by the Way was the most frightful look ing thing i Ever saw repair to the dwelling of his Friend and Call her to the door by rapping. I was to stand near to witness the result and ence. And you my Young friends when you Are tempted to play upon others i am sure will Stop to consider that what seems so innocent and harmless May perhaps in the end prove a fatal participate in the joke. He blushed Hung Down his head and of course effects of spirits in a healthy system. With respect to the employment of alcoholic stimuli by healthy men under circumstances of Ordinary labor there can be no doubt whatever and both science and observation teach us so that they Are totally unnecessary. If however refused. I had expected this but flattered my j the question be whether there do not at self that 1 could easily persuade him to the contrary. It was however a harder task than i his unwillingness seemed greater than Ever the reason i readily understood. I Poh d and p Shaw a and finally threatened to expose to All the boys his cowardly disposition As i pleased to term it and tender feelings towards Julia which As yet none of them had discovered. This last argument proved More successful than the other for he Well knew that i never suffered the idles threat to remain unfulfilled and Hie fear of being laughed at be sides betraying that which he most wished to conceal conquered and yielded though Reluct jangly his consent. At that moment i even exulted Over my Triumph though i have often wished my lips had been struck dumb before i uttered those words that sealed the after Fate of two pure beings. But in my thoughtlessness i rushed heedlessly in in whatever i undertook regardless of consequences. My wild reckless spirit had never been tamed. Finding there was but one alternative and that to submit cheerfully to my whim he suffered himself to be arrayed my fancy Sugges Ted with Good Grace and even laughed right heartily As i added garment after garment in Ordiso to make him look As frightful As possible yet after All i could see that his mind was ill at ease and half condemned myself for being the cause of his unhappiness. When at length All was arranged to my Satis i placed the horrid mask Over his face arise Concu stances in which extraordinary exer Liori is called for and in which stimuli Are serviceable the answer must be that certainly such circumstances do occur but not nearly so frequently As is generally imagined certainly not under what is usually called severe labor for instance to the Harvest work of the agriculturist the labor of the hand craftsman or the toil of the professional Man. A Man engaged in bodily exercise is undergoing regular course of stimulation his wife is stimulating the nervous system the acting Muscles Are Send ing the blood More quickly through the Capil Laries and Large vessels and the heart must move More actively to keep Pace with them and transmit the quickly returned blood loaded with effete matter to be purified in the lungs.
