Life is full of cares and troubles,
Scarce a bright and sunny spot ;
Not a place within its wildwood,
Where a shadow pierces not;
Not a bright and dancing streamlet
Undisturbed by rod; or shoal;
Not a barque that glides on smoothly
With its freight, a precious soul.
Not a flower but that is hiding
Many n thorn whose sting is deep ;
Not a valley where the -
Withered not by storm winds sleep
There may be a bright oasis,
One small island over green ;
Soon we sweep past flowery shores
Which by us no more are seen.
Though the willows kiss the water,
On our barque is gliding still,
Poet the bright and sunny bower,
Hastening on against our will ;
Though we grasp the slender reedlets
Growing on the shell-lined beach,
Soon the breakers sweep us from them ;
Toss their heads beyond our teach.
Yet we know there is n harbor
In the far-off distant laud,
Whore we'll anchor safely, surely,
When we reach the sunny strand ;
There's a father waiting for us,
Opening wide his loving arms;
Soon will we bo sheltered in them,

Idleness is the nurse of all vices. It
moves so slowly that they all overtake
it. The Germans and the Italians say,
proverblally, that "idleness is the dev
il's pillows." Some affect to excuse
this hydra.headed habit by asking
what harm can a person do when ho
does nothing ? The reply is ready and
plain. He .who is passive in allowing
decay is himself a destroyer. While
standing still and refusing to help he
.obstructs the progress of others. Wo
'are told in Holy. Writ: "By much
slothfulness the building decayeth, and
through idleness of the hands the
house droppeth through." And again
it is said : "I went to the field of the
slothful and by theyineyard of the man
void of understanding, and to! it was
all overgrown with thorns, and nettles
had covered the face thereof, and the
stone wall thereof was braken down."
The words of Cato, the elder, are in the .
proverb, "that one who does nothing
learns to do evil." Idleness has been
well described to be -a moral leprosy,
which soon eats its way into the heart
and corrodes our happiness, while it
unde . rmines our health. Idleness is
costly, without being a luxury. Mon
taigne always wound up the year's ac
count of his expenses with the follow
ing entry : "Item—for my abomina•
We habit of idleness, a thousand livres?!
We toil for leisure only to discover,
when we have succeeded in our object,
that leisure is a great evil. How
quickly would the working class be
reconciled to what they may call the
hardships of compulsory occupation, if
they were doomed only for a short
time to the greater hardships of com
pulsory idleness. They would quickly
find that it is much better to wear out
than to rust out. The idle man is at
the mercy of all the vices. The work
ing man, on the contrary, finds a safe
guard in his occupation, which leaves
no time for temptations nor desire to
yield to them. It was well said, by
the oldest of the Greek poets, that "the
laborer is the sentinel of virtue."
MRS. GRUNDY SPOILS OUR GIRLS.—
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, who, by
the way, is a good teacher, gives some
good advice about the girls, and it is a
pity his advice could not be heeded.
By-and-by there will bo no girls and
children; they will all be women from
ton to twenty years old. Mr. Beecher
"A girl is not allowed to ho a girl
after she is ten years old. If you treat
her as though she was one she win - ask
you what you mean. If she- starts to
run across the street, she is brought
baiik to the nursery to listen to a lec
ture on the propriety of womanhood.
Now it scorns to me that a girl Should
be nothing but a girl until she is seven
teen. Of course there are proprieties
belonging to her sex which it is fitting
for her to observe, but it seems to me
that, aside from these, she ought to
have the utmost latitude. She ought
to be encouraged to do much out of
doors—to run and exercise in all those
ways which aro calculated to develop
the muscular frame. What is true of
boys in the matter of bodily health, is
eminently so of girls. It is all impor
tant that woman' should bo healthy
and well developed. Man votes, writes,
does business, etc., but woman is the
teacher and the mother of the world;
and anything that deteriorates woman
is a comprehensive plague on life it
self. Health among women is a thing
that every man, who is wise and con
siderate for his race, should more earn
estly sock and promote."
tts„,The world is crazy fin. show.
There is not ono person in a thousand
who dares lall back on his real, simple
self, for power to get through the
world, and exact enjoyment as he goes
along. There is too much living in the
oyes of other people. There is no end
to the aping, the mimicry, theildso
airs and the superficial airs. It re
quires rare courage, we admit, to live
up to one's enlightened convictions in
these days. Unless you consent to
join in the general cheat, there in no
room for you among the great mob of
pretenders. If a man dares to live
Within his moans, and is resolute in his
purpose pot to appear more than he
really is, lot him be applauded, There
is something fresh and invigorating in
such an example, and we should honor
and uphold such n man with all the
energy in our power.

Beware of Pickpockets,
A RAILROAD STORY
"Beware of pickpockets, Joshua,"
said Joshua Harker's mother to her
grown up son, when that interesting
youth was about starting to visit his
aunt Betsy Baker, who lived seventy
live miles off, in the village of ciray
" res'm," responded Joshua dutifully,
"I'll keep my eyes peeled •for 'em.
Guess if they ketch this child nappin',
they'll rise earlier than they're used
"That's right, my lad; rollers know

be !" and with : a kiss that. made the
very locOmotivo give a snort of amaze

Joshua seated hiMself in tho very
middle of the;car—he had heard it said
that there was less dang er there, and
holding the valise on lis lap, ho put

on his pocket book, and mentally de

much about their doings in the cars,
that ho thought it was impossible to
use too much precaution.
At the next station they took on a
very pretty but decidedly nervous
young lady in a blue bonnet and pink
dress. She passed beside Joshua and
"ls this seat engaged ?"
"No, not that I know of," stammer
ed Joshua, blushing up
. to his hair.
"Want to sot down ?"
"Thank you," and she sat down so
gracefully that her expansive crinoline
spread entirely over Joshua's knees
and valise, and completely enveloped

"Going fur ?"
"To G ray hu'rg ?"

They were beginning to got better

now took his hand away from his
watch and put it round the back of
"Going to stay thoro long, Miss ?"
"A. week, I guess."
"Be you! About as long as I be,"
responded Joshua, lotting his hand rest
on the back of her shawl, and feeling
very much as when Deacon Jones
caught him robbing his pear tree. The
young lady drew back.
"LaW, you musn't do so, sir. It aint
"I'd like to know what's to 'tender,"
said Joshua boldly.
"Why the folks will sco us," said the
Who keors," said Joshua. "I'm

father's watch in my pocket and ton

had depiisited his wallet in his hat, he

"Jerusalem !" roared Joshua, spring

the young lady by his side, who was

An angry man is a fearful sight, but
can't compare with g. 4 angry woman.
And this ono was raging. She brand
ished her parasol in one hand and her
reticule in the other.

she. You've taken advantage of an in

How I wish Marin' was here—she'd

over the seat.
The girl seized him by the coat tail.
"No you don't!" screamed she, f'not

By this time the whole car load-of
passengers wore aroused to the condi
tion of things, and as is natural in such
things,.there was a division of opinion.
Some took sides with the woman and
some with Josh.
Joshua's senses began to be slightly
muddled. A half score of people worn
heading him off, and that terrible
young lady in a pink dress was cling
ing to his coat skirts, and his pocket
book was gone. He felt desperate.
"Stand aside, every ono of you," ho
cried to the passengers before him, and
just than the ears gave a lurch, a 4 they
are in the habit of doing, and Josh
went head first against the stomach of
a fat woman who had risen to see what
was the matter.
The woman went over, Josh went,
so did the young lady in pink, and the
whole crowd fell on a seat where a
very loving young couple and a lap
dog were reposing. The scat was
squelched, so were the loyers and the
dog, and the pry arose faster and fast
or, ''A collision ! th_ere's a collision !"
Everybody sprang to their feet and
seized their carpet hags, and the cam
-halm beeOrno a tragedy_
the conductor had not just then ap
peared and restored order.. He-shook
Joshua and ordered the youtig woman
to sit down and bbhavo' herself.
Josh took off his hat to scratch his
head, and lo ! out dropped his pocket
book. Our hero flung up both his
hands in ecstasy. "Hooray, it's found !
Hail Columby, aint I glad !"
And about the earn; Limo the 'con
ductor picked up a nondoscrit looking
bag from the floor. The young lady in
pink rushed forward, and seizing it
exclaimed, "My pocket ! my pocket !
It must have slipped off. 0 haint I
glad ! And Joe's pietar all hunk."
"Let's shake hands," said Joshua,
approaching her, "I bain't a pickpock
et and you haiut a pickpocket, and by
golly I'll have a kiss." •
And he did.
A LITTLE QUAKERESS IN A Iluttay. 7 —
An amusing matrimonial story is told
of the olden time in England. It so fell
out that two young people became at
tached to each other, as young people
sometimes do. Tho young woman's
father was a wealthy Quaker, the
young man was "poor but respectable."
The father could stand no such union,
and resolutely opposed it, and the
daughter dared not disobey openly.
She met him by moonlight, while she
pretended never to"see him, and she
pined and wasted in spite of herself.
She was really in love—a state of sighs
and tears which women oftener reach
in imagination than reality. So the
father remained inexorable. Time

I looked at my neighbor with con
siderable curiosity. His face indica,

a period at which men are still young,
but his hair was as white as fresh

act of staring at him—a rudeness of
which I was ashamed. I was about to ,
say some Words of apology . , wheii .ho
quietly remarked : •
"Don't mention it,sir; I'm need to it."
The franknesi of this observation
pleased me, and in a very little while
we were conversing on terms of famil

he had told me the whole story.

I slumped down upon the floor of the

lay stretched out above my, head on

a snake ! Of course my first impulse
was to draw away my hand, but know=.

in my breast like a `trip harainer. Of

I realized all my peril in its fullest ex,

I had touched liquor , !.lnc every glass
of liquor they say there is a serpent.;
but it doeenot come to everybody in
the shape it came to me: With a slow;
undulating motion the reptile dragged
its carcass , across my face, inch by
inch, and crept down over my breast,
and thrust its head inside my jacket.
As I felt the hideous scraping of the
slimy body over my cheeks it was on
ly,by the most tremendous effort that
I succeeded in restraining myself from .
yelling loudly with mingled terror and
disgust. At last I felt.the tail wrig
gling down.towards my chin; but im

away in old England; my happy home
by the borders of the Avon ; my Mary,
the girl I loved, and never expected
to see them more. For no matter how
long I bore this, I felt that it *would
