Why, then, did a vision came o'er the sea,

Did a Tearful storm sweep over the day,
And the ornate splendor pass away?

Why by life's waves so pitilessly tossed?

The Poor Musician and his Mate,
One beautiful slimmer day there was
a great festival in the large park at
Vienna. This park is called by the
people the Prater. It is full of lovely
trees, splendid walks, and little rustic
pleasure houses. At the time of which
I am speaking there were people there,
some young add some old, and many
strangers too. And all those who
were there enjoyed such a scene as
they had probably never beheld before.
Be that as it may, the Prater was al
most covered with the crowds of peo
ple. Among the number were organ
grinders, beggars, and girls who play
ed on harps. There stood an old mu
sician. He had once been a soldier,
but his pension was not enough to live
on. Still he didn't like to beg; there
fore on this particular festival day Le
took his violin and played under the
old tree in the park. He had a good
faithful dog along with him which lay
at his feet, and held an old hat in his
mouth so that passers by might cast
coins in it for the poor old man.
On the day of the festival which I
have now mentioned, the dog sat be
fore hiM with the old hat. Many peo
ple went by and heard the old musi
cian playing, but they didn't throw
much in. I wonder the people did not
give him more, for ho was truly a pit,
iable object. His face was covered
with scars received in his country's
battles, and he wore a long gray coat,
such as he had kept ever since he had
' been in the army. He even had his
old sword by his side, and would not
consent to walk in the streets without
carrying his trusty friend with him.
He had only three fingers on his right
hand, so he had So hold the bow of his
violin with these. A bullet had taken
off the two others, and almost at the
same time a cannon ball had taken oft'
his left leg. The last money he had,
had been spent in buying new strings
for his violin, and he was now playing
with all his strength the old marches
be had learned so often when a boy
with his father..He looked sad enough
as be saw the multitudes pass by in
their strength and beauty, but when•
ever they laughed it WllB like a dagger
to'his soul, for he knew on that very
evening he would go to bed supperless,
hungry as he was, and lie on a straw
couch in a little garret room. His old
dog was better off, for ho often found
a bone here and there to satisfy the
cravings of hunger. It was late in the
afternoon, his hopes were almost like
the sun—they were both going down
together. He placed his old violin
down by his side, and leaned against
an old tree. The tears streamed down
his scarred cheeks. He thought that
none of that giddy crowd saw him,
but he was much mistaken. Not far
off stood a gentleman in fine clothes
who had a kind heart. He listened to
the old musician, and when he saw
that no one gave him anything, his
heart was touched with sympathy.
He finally went to the dog, and look
ing into the hat saw only two little
copper coins in it. He thou said to the
old musician
"My good friend, why don't you
play longer 7"
"Oh l• replied the old man, "my
dear sir, I cannot; my poor old arm is
so tired that I can't bold the bow; be
sides I have had no dinner, and have
little prospect of supper."
The old man wiped his feeble hands.
The kind gentleman with whom lie
talked resolved to aid him as best he
could. He then gave him a piece of
gold and said :
"PH pay you if you will loan mo
your violin for one hour."
"Oh," said the musician, "this piece
of money is worth more than a dozen
fiddles like mine."
"Never mind," said the gentleman ;
"I only wunt to hire it one hour."
"Very well, you can do what you
will," said the owner.
The gentleman took the fiddl.e and
bow in - his hands and then said to the
old man :
"Now, my mate, you talce the mon
ey, and I. will play. lam sure peoplo
will give us something."
Now, was not that a singular musi
cal association ? They had just he-
come acquainted, and immediately en
tered into an arrangement to work to
gether for the public. The strange
gentleman began to play. His mate
looked at him with great wonder; he
was so stirred that ho could hardly
believe it was his old violin that Ruch
beautiful sounds came froth. Every
note was like a pearl. The first piece
had not been finished before the people,
observing the strange sight, and hear
ing wonderful music, stopped a mo
ment in curiosity. Every ono' saw
that the fine looking gentleman was
playing for the poor man, but none
knew who he was.
By and by the peoplo began to drop
money into the hat, and the 'old dog
seemed delighted to receive so many
pieces of gold for his Master. The
circle of bearers became larger and
larger. Even the coachman of the
splendid carriages begged the people
inside to stop and hear the music.
Still the money ine'reased. Gold, silver
and copper were thrown into the hat
by old and young. The 'old dog be
gan to growl. What in the world
could bo the matter? Ono gentleman
as he dropped a large piece of money
into the hat, bad struck him on the
nose, and be came very near letting
the hat and money fall. But it soon
became so heavy he could not hold it
any longer.
"Empty your hat, old man," said
the people, and we will fill it again for
He pulled out an old handkerchief
and wrapped the money in it, and put
it in his violin bag.
The stranger kept on playing, and
the people cried out, "Bravo! bravo!"
in great, joy. He played first one tune,
and then another—even children seem
ed carried away with rapture. At
last, he played that splendid song,
"God bless the Emperor Francis!" All
hats and caps flew off their heads, for
the people loved their Emperor. Tho
song finally came to an end. The
hour - was ended, and the musician
handed back the violin to the old man.
"Thank you," said ho. "May God
bless you!" and ho disappeared in the
"-Who is ho? Who is he ?" said the
people. "Micro does lie come from ?"
A certain person sitting in one of the
coaches said. '
"I know him. It is Alexander
Boucher the distinguished violinist. It
is just like him.. He saw the old man
needed help, and ho determined to
help him in the best way ho could."
The people then. gavn r .thr9O cheers
for Boucher, and but more' moneY in
the old luau's hat. When ho went
home that evening he was richer than
be had ever been before. When he
went to his bed he folded his hands
, and prayed God might bless good
Boucher, so that when he should get
to he an old man ho might have good
Now, I believe that there were two
happy men that night in Vienna. Of
*course, the poor old musician rejoiced
now that ho was out of want; but of
more value to him than all his money
was the consolation that somebody had
proved a friend to him. For it does
us all good to know that we have
friends, oven though they are of no
farther advantage to us. There was
another who was happy, and that was
the good man Boucher. How could
ho go to bed that night without thank
ing God for putting it into his heart to
be kind to the friendless, btarving sol
Next to the" benefit which our good
deeds confer, is that which they confer
on ourselves.
Now, children, this is a big world.
Look around you, and you will always
find that you can do something to
make this world of ours better, as well
as ourselves happier.
The spirit in which our Lord receives
gifts of his disciples, is well illustrated
by the following anecdote:
A poor Arab traveling in the desert
met with a spring of clear, sweet,spark
ling water. Accustomed as ho was to
brackish wells, to his simple mind it
appeared that such water as this was
worthy of a monarch; and filling his
leathern bottle from the spring he de
termined to go- and present it to the
calif himself.
The poor man traveled a considera•
ble distance before he,. reached the
presence of his soverefgti and laid his
humble offering at his feet. The calif
did not despise the little gift brought
to lain with so much trouble. He or
dered some•of the water to be poured
into a cup, drank it, and thanking the
Arab with a smile, ordered be
presented with a reward. The court
iers around pressed forward, eager to
taste of the wonderful water; but, to
the surprise of all, the calif forbade
them to touch a single drop.
After the poor Arab had quitted the
royal presence with a light and joyful
heart, the calif turned to his courtiers
and thus explained the motives of his
conduct: "During the travels of the
Arab," said ho, '•the water in his
leathern bottle had becoineirapure and
distasteful. 1. tit it was an offering of
love, and as such I have received it
with pleasure. But I well knew that
had I suffered another to partake of it,
he would not have concealed his dis
gust; and therefore I forbade you to
touch- thedraugbt lest the heart of the
poor man should have been wounded."
In such love will our Lord receive our
poor gifts.
jWhy 4re corn and potatoes like
the idols of old? Because the former
have ears and hoar not, and the latter
eyes but see not.
ym.Nothing se much destroys. our
peace of mind as to hear another ex

of his.

What Buttons have Done.
The Round Table tella us what But
tons have done : "We must go back
nearly forty years. Then all buttons
used by Americans were imported.
But a shrewd Yankee' lady, the
young wife of a man in humble cir
cumstances, was seized with the idea
of manufacturing buttons at home
and by hand. She picked some im
ported buttons in pieces, and was
satisfied that with wooden molds she
could produce buttons that would find
as good a market as the imported
ones. Her idea was seconded by her
husband, who was a thrifty farmer . in
a country village in Western Massa
chusetts. A few buttons were made
and were sold. The same hand made
more, and these found a ready mar
ket.. Little by little, month after
month, the idea grew until the persis-,
tent had more than she could do her
self, and laborers were employed to
assist in the manufacture. The hus
band, finding himself outdone, aban
doned farming and devoted his emir : .
glee to the new business. Machinery
was dsvised to accelerate matters.
factory was built. The enterprise
grew with amazing proportions. Qth•
er factories went up. A village clus
tered around the •button ' enterprise.
Wealth flowed in on the proprietor.
Factories were built for making see
penders, for making India rubber
webbing, and factories for cotton
spinning. With every year the pro
ject grew apace until the proprietor
could be named among the million
Out of the proceeds of the button
manufacture a seminary was estab
lished, which is doubtless at the head
of schools for young men in this coun
try. A church was built, and acci
dentally burned. Another was built,
and shared a similar fate. A third
was built without delay, each being
handsomer than its predecessor. A
college was in trouble. The proceeds
of buttons came to its relief and placed
it upon enduring foundations—a col
lege that has sent its men around . the
world to do good and help civilize. A
young ladies' Seminary was the next
plan—the first of any account in this
country. Agai❑ the button purse flew
open, and the school that has been a
model for at least halfa dozen others
was firmly founded. And all this time
very few outside of these villages
knew who was doing it all. In fact,
we know of no instance whore so much
has been done by,an
. individual with
ont its being trutripetedl6 - the World.
Nor have wo mentioned half of the
benefactions which came from the but
ton success. A college in the West
was helped to a permanenc footing. A
ladies' seminary in the Weet was al
so kindly remembered. A college in
Syria, having the grandest plan at its
foundation, was generously aided.
And all the time new buildings WM)
being added to the institutions which
he had chiefly established, and for
which we had supplied the money.
During the past season ho has com
pleted a great factory at a cost of not
fitr from half a million, and is now
erecting a Splendid dormitory building
in connection with the school which
bears his name. This is in part what
buttons have done and aro doing.
Many persons will like to know the
name of the "button prince—some
few have already divined it-Ahe name
of Samuel Williston, of Easthampton,
Massachusetts. In all those years of
noble deeds and ever increasing sue
coss Mr. Williston has shunned publici
ty, and we know he will feel no pleas
ure at seeing -his name used in this
way. He is now seventy years of ago,
but still manages all his own affairs
and executes details with wonderful
IC LODOES.—When King Solomon was
still a young man ho had married his
seventh wife. She was a - beautiful
young Ammonites , with locks, as
black as the raven's wing, and eyes
as bright as the eagle's. It was be
lieved that she was the favored ono
among all the sultanas of the Great

Ono evening King Solomon atten
ded lodge on some grand occasion, and
stayed out somewhat late. When he
returned home, be found the fair Am
monitess in the dumps, and pouting
just as the dear wives of Masons do
sometimes now when their lords stay
out late at the Lodge. ShO upbraided
him with neglecting her,
that he hadn't been to the Lodge as he
pretended, and insisted that in future
he should give proof that he went there
by having herself initiated, so that she
might go there and watch him.
"Daughter of Ammon," replied the
King, "thou bast behaved thyself as
One of the foolish women, in presum
ing to question thy lord and master.
Thou art not so angry with me as thou
pretendest to be; for the true reason
of this behaviour is thy insatiable cu
riosity, in which thou excellest Eye her
self. Know then, that I here ordain
that neither thou, nor any of thy in

portals of a Masonic Lodge; but I

wisest of monarchs has continued in
force until this day.

The Last Man in a Barber shop,
We have seen many illustrations of
misery, many, that move the hardest
heart to pity; nothing can be more
touching to an observer, nothing bet
ter defines misery, than a man in a
barber shop, with a dozen or so ahead
of him, waiting to be shaved. It is
impossible for any ono who has never
experienced it, to know, how much
nerve is required to pass successfully
through this ordeal. Different na
tures, of, course, experience different
degrees of misery as they wait. ‘.'Thp

gling with a moustache," [the fading
hue of which has twoughtliiin again to
the tonsorial artist,] , havinff an en
gagemenk with "Susan"—who has told
him, "anything but a feller as isn't on
time"—can probably be pot doWn as
the subjebt of most abject wretched
ness arid despair, as he enters and
looks around upon "lea miserablee
who are ahead of him, the last of
whom mingles with his misery kgrim

bltion ;of fame, as elle beckons from
afar to the midnigllt porer over vol
umes filled with learning and wisdom,
or to the warrior as he cuts his way
with his sword and Hyades through
seas of blood to her shining goal ! The
scholar's ambition fades to insignifi
cance, and the soldier'4l dream of glory
vanishes before the mighty yearnings
of the last man in the barber shop,
waiting for his turn. No goal but the
cushioned chair does be see, "so near
and yet so far."
There is music to bin in the bar

tanco between him and his ambition's
goal; and when it finally appeals to
him, ho exreriencos a joy that . the
honied words of flattery fail to bring
to him who has found fame. Enforce
the Maine law, prohibit tilting hoops,
make dry street crossings, &c., &e.,
and we will submit, but "deliver us,
good Lord" from being the last man in
a barber shop.

I send you another . example of the
misguided love of patents, and I think
such cases could be Multiplied. SGMO
years ago, I was dining with a gen
tleman and lady, whose only child, a
boy some four years old } } was seated
at the table-with ae; her-became cla
morous, and' must be waited on first.
Pa tenerly inquired, "What will you
take, dear ? Shall I give you some
chicken ?" The child pouted, "No, I
want some of that," pointing to anoth
er dish. Ma said, "Oh, darling, that
is not good for you." The little darl
ing cried lustily, and persisted in hav
ing that or nothing. S . o the lady gave
her child that which she knew was bad
for hien, remarking to me, in an repo•
logetical tone, "he is so positivo we al-
Ways let him have all he wants, for
the sake ofpeace." I ventured to re
mark, "I hope the peace thus obtain
ed will be permanent; sometimes
children who are suffered to have all
they thitqc they want, beehme selfish
and ungovernable!' The parents
thought their child was not in any
danger, for as he grow older pride
would come to his aid, and he would
act differently.
Time rolled on; I watched the result,
marked the growth of thoie seeds of
misrule. They have hlossomed, and
are bearing fruit. That child, not yet
grown to manhodd, is
.now, for the
second or third time, in prison for tak
ing that. which belonged to another.
He wanted it, and would have it.

zerA great wonder is the "Walled
Lake," in Wright county, lowa. It is
from two to three feet higher than the
earth's surface around it, and enclosed
by a wall ten feet high, fifteen feet
wide at the bottom, and at the top five,
made of stones weighing from three
tons to one hundred pounds each.
There is an abundance of stones in
Wright county; out surrounding the
lake, to the extent of five or ten miles,
there are none. No one knows how or
by whom the wall was built. Around
the lake is a belt of oak woodland, half
a mile in width. With -this exception
the country is a rolling prairie. The
trees, therefore, must have been placed
there at the time of building the wall.
In the spring of 181 there was a great
storm, and the ice on the lake broke
the wall in several places, and the far
niers in tile vicinity were obliged to
repair the damages to prevent inunda
tion. The lake occupies a ground sur
face of 2800 acres, depth of water as
great as twenty-five feet. The water
is clear and cold; soil sandy and loamy.
It is singular that no one has been able
to ascertain where the water comes
from, and whore it goes, yet it always
remains clear and fresh.

Some few years ago, at the close o£
a youth's temperance meeting, held on
the west i eitie of the city, I went up to
a group of young lads Mid' asked theM
if they' would sign the pledge. Some
of them consented; but one said, "Oh,
no.. am not going to sign away my:
liberty ; I am not going to be unsocial;
I iuteud to enjoy life." We triedlo
reason with the young lad, but in vain;
ho said he was not going to 810 away!
his liberty.
We:parted; I did not see' Samos at
the temperance Meeting again. Some
short time after, a person called at My
store, with a request that I would .go
down to the Tombs to see boy : there.
I went down with this friend,'and, on
entering a cell, found a boy—for ha
was only some sixteen years of age—.
in deep distress. It was R--,
who had told me at the temperance,
meeting , that he would not sign away
hisliberty;and there he was,foutid guilt
of marger, and condemned to die. '*;.
The meeting was indeed Sad ono.,
With bitter tears, ho begged me to go
to Albany and try to get a pardon.—
"Oh f" says he, ".T. was drunk. I knoW
nothing about it." With some com
panions he had been drinking on Sat:
urday evening, and, going along one of
the streets on the west side of the city ;
they had insqlted a man who, was go : ,
ingliomej with his wife, and on thq
man remonstrating with them, they
sot up,qn him and murdered him. By
whose hand the fatal blow was struck
James knew not; he remembered no:,
thing : hp was drunk.
He was, however, tho only one ap
preileadecl. He was tried, found guil-:
ty, and condemned. It was in vain,
with others, we sought a pardon ;an
example must be made, so many mur-,
dors about that time had been Com
mitted, and James must die. Ant(
thus he would not sign away his liber :
ty, as he called it, by signing the tem-,
perance pledge, had his liberty out off ,
three weeks after, and soon after his
life signed away, for indulging in ,t,hoset
drinks we besought him to let alone.-- z ,

Hays, State Assayer of Idassochusetts,
has been heard before the License
Committee at Boston. His testimony
is reported in. the Boston papers: He
explained the method of analyOlg il

that a largo-_ prop4rtioa of thfl wine
sold is not made from 'the juipp of the
grape. There are more impure spirits
sold now than at any former periqCl
within his knowledge. He could eabi
ly toll whether wine bad, been enforced
by brandy or not. The liquor 4 gen - 4;
rally seld are manitfaeturecl. The
seized liquors are generally worse than
those which pan bp bought of the more
respeptablo dealers. New liquors, oft}
strictly spirituous kind, exert a poison:
ous influence aside from the alcoholle
element. This is the case with imma l
turn wines, when norapeondpd from
Immature liquors chosen for that pin.-
pose. The use of liquor diminishes the
vital forces and doubtless tends to the
shortening life. The witness was ask !
ed if ho wished to say anything lyittl
reference to the medical testimony
von for the petitioners, to which he re
plied that .p r . Clarke had explairied
the whole subject physiologically in it
beautiful manner. The statement that
alcohol produces fat, or is a substitutq
for it, has no sufficient chemical basis.
It does not prevent the disintegration}
of the tissues, but that is not a, liefiltby
optic's. The community would be
saved a great amount of misery ang4

MEN.—An old lady, resident of a
neighboring place, kept a large family
of turkeys, perhaps sixty. She, like a.
great many other people,.thought
groat deal of her turkeys,
coasequent: .
ly valued them very highly. Oploosite,
her was a largo West India goods
store. The man one day emptied his
cask of pherries, intending to replace
them with new.' This olelady, being
economical, thought it a 'great pity to
have all these cherries wasted ? 4114 hq .
order to have them saved' .she would
just drive over her turkeys and let
them eat them. In the course of thq
day the old lady thought she would
look after thorn and see if they were in
no mischief. She approached the yard,
and lo ! in one corner lay her turkeys
in ono huge pile, dead. Yes, they
xvore stone dead. What was :to bq
done? Surely the old 'matron could
not lose the feathers. She must pick
them. Sho called her dangbtar

buried in the morning. Morning came
and behold there were the turkeys
stalking about the yard, featherleski

"quit, quit," feelh;g, no douht,

the means of losing their eoats. P,oot
things! if they had said "quit" before
they began they Would not have bean
