A Good Story.
Between eighty nnd ninety years ago,
there lived in Connecticut rivorvnlley, two
farmers, one of whom was named Hunt,
and tho other Clark. Tho former in early
life, had been a man of strong will nnd
somewhat hasty and violent in temper.
Sometimes he had been seen beating his
oxen over tlieir heads with the handle of
his whip, in a way to excite the pity of by
standers, find when expostulated with, he
excused himself by saving that be had the
most fractious team in town, By-und-l.y
an alteration took place in the temper of
farmer Hunt, lie became mild, forbear
ing and what was most remarkable, his
-oxen seemed to improve in disposition at
((inil pace with himself.
Farmer Hunt joined the church and
was an exemplary man. His ncighliors
saw the change both in himself and team.
It was n marvel to the whole town. One
of his townsmen asked him fur nu expla
nation. Farmer Hunt sail: "I havo found
out secret about my cattle. Formerly
they were unmanageable. The more 1
whipped and clubbed them the worse thev

seem to like sin irin .
In the course, of n few years the two
farmers were chosen deacons of the Church,
nnd they both adorned their profession.
About tho time of tlieir election a previous
famine prevailed in tho valley, nnd the
farmers generally wero employed in lay

To produce that ell'eet, however, a very

in that respect it was to be distinguished
from vinous fluids, which are exeitive.
Vinous fermentation must take pl ieo be

distillation, for in the one ciso the alcohol
was retained in tho fluid, in the other it
was dran n otf separately. He adhered to
the conviction that lager beer would not
intoxicate unless taken in immense quan
tities. He was once applied to, he said,
by n man who described himself as nt vny

that lac, he (the Dr.) thought that drink

In it not time Torus tothinkofrctrcncli

luxurious easy rhuir before n glowing grate.

Mrs. Livingston looked inquiringly into
her husband's face, mid there ivns a shade
of anxiety in the tone of her voice, as she

Not exactly liec-ssity ; I a- happy t)
Miy. It is rather a matter of expediency
than necessity. Every man ought to les
son his expenccs at such a time ns this.
As 1 said, retrenchment is the watchword
It ought to be witU many, no doubt;
but I cannot see why all should adopt it.
It is a medicine very wholesome for those
who need it: an excellent curative for
those suffering the ills induced by extrav
agance, and folly and dishonesty." Let nil
those who have been living on "other peo
ple's money try it. Hut why should wo
try it? Our expenccs have bore a wise
and reasonable proportion to our income,
and you ndmit that even now there is no
necessity for retrenchment.
That is true. Still 1 think, in these
hard times it is wise to cut oil' nil unnec
essary oxpenccs. There is a propriety
in doing so. Hesides the claims of chari
ty will be great this coining winter.
There will lo nn immense amount of suf

Have we not more servants than we
really need? Wo have quite a number,
and I think we might spare one or two,
without serious inconvenience.
After a thoughtful silt nee, Mr, Living
ston said :
I could spare JAiry. 1 really don't need
her very much, though she is "such a good
faithful creature, that I shall regret lopart
If you can spare her without inconvenience-

plain sewing for us for a month past. I
told her I should want her two months,
and I could find work for her that time ;
but 1 can do without her services very
well, and 1 will dismiss herSaturday night,
if you think best.
Mr. Livingston assented. ISetrench
tnent in other departments, wasdiseussed,
aiul various plans proposed, someof w hich
were adopted, and others laid on the table
for future consideration.
Three weeks later, Mr. Livingston olc
served to his wife, with an air uf comfort
My dear, I am more convinced every day
that we wero right in the plan adopted

a pitiful story.
I hope you helped him.
Yes, I gave him twenty dollars, a por
tion of what wc have saved by economy.
The next evening Mr. Livingston set
tled himself in his easy chair with a grave
and somewhat troubled look, The ex
pression of his countenance was that of a
man whose solf-oouiplaconcy had been se
riously disturbed. Mrs. Livingston was
quick to observe this. She waited some
lime for her husband to break the silence:
but seeing that he was not disposed to do

Not unless you tall it annoyance for a

a very wise thing.

Livingston, is n tone in which wifely sym

Flease explain yourself.
You remember the plans for retrench

I do, und it was only last evening that
you were descanting on thewisdom of that

That is true ; but I hnve learned since
that this wisdom was folly, not to call it
by a harsher name. But "l will tell you
what has opened my eyes. You remem
ber what 1 said to you about tho poor fol
low whom I assisted yesterday? This
morning I mentioned the circumstance to
my friend, Mr. Chase, ns wo werespenking
of the hard times and the suffering of the
r.oor. To my surprise ho exclaimed earn
I would not give the fellow a cent.
Why not, I inquired. Out of work with
six children to feed, is ho not an object of
No j the fellow came to me with the
same story a week ago. 1 pitied him, of
course, and offered him work nt low wa
ges unt'l ho could do better ; but hescorn
fully rejected the proposal. Now such a
man I do not wish to help. There arc
hundreds who would gratefully accept of
even moderato wages. I made him the
liest oiler I could afford, and it would hnve
kept his family from absolute suffering
until the times are better.
If I had known the fact you have sta

I inn not, he replied, but why do yui
ask ? 1
I met with a ra-o ofsufferiii" ve-terday
thai touched my sympathies.' A poor
girl, of neat nnd liicdo-t appearance came
into my sioro to inquire if 1 did not wish
to lure her. On my replying in (he ne-a-tive,
she eagerly inquired if I did not know
ol some one who wanted t hire. On a
jam receiving a negative the tears coursed
down her pale.-thl., ohooks, for pale and
thin they weie; and f, turned nwav
with a despairing ejaculation that went to
luv heart. I called her buck, mid made
inquiries into her circumstances. Jt was
a sorrowful tale. Jler father fell from the
roof ol a house three months ago, nnd was
so injured that he has not left his bed
since. She had two brothers and n sister,
all twoyoung to earniuiything. Her moth

Hut now she had been out of a place for
three weeks, her mother could get no sew

to g t something to eat.
When 1 went home to dinner, my wife
with swimming eyes, told me about her
call. When f,
she Legged to be allowed to carry it home,
instead of eating it herself, declaring that
it almost broke her heart to think of poor
Sammy, und Charles, nnd little Tinny, who
had been crying for broadall the morning.
When told to satisfy her appetite, while a
basket was filled for her lo take home, she
fell at it as ono half starved, yot as soon
as the basket was ready she would remain
no longer, but hastened with it to her
This tale of suffering related by my
friend, touched my heart. I learned from
him where the poor family were to be
found, and that very hour I repaired to
tlieir dwelling, .fudge my surprise when
I found this girl was no other than Maty
herself. Her dismissal from our service,
at a time when situations wore so difficult
to be obtained, had brought a deserving
family to tho brink of starvation. O?
course, I relieved their present necessi
ties, nnd told Marv to come back to-morrow
morning. They overwhelmed mo
with expressions of gralitnde, but I felt
more like a culprit than a benefactor.
Hut you did not intend any w rong, said
True; but I adopted a wrong course
of conduct without due consideration.
Strange I did not use a little more com

would do, if thrown out of employ at such

Mrs. Livingston was able to give the
street and number of her residence. The
next day, Mr. Livingston nude his way
thither. Hi call was opportune. Ashe
ascended the stairs lendimr in tl.n l.ni..l.ln

The story was soon told. Lucy hail
been unable to obtain work since she was
dismissed from the employ of Mrs. Living
ston, and could not piy the month's rent
of her room, nnd she and her little all
were being driven from it.
Mr. Livingston hastened to repair the
mischief of his second retrenchment The
rent was paid, nnd Lucy was informed
that thoro was plenty of sewing for her lit
tlio house of her old patron.
I have learned a lesion, said Mr. Living
ston to his wife that evening. Not re
trenchment but wise expenditure shall be
my motto this winter. That addition to
my store, which I had given on account of
hard times, shall bo built, 1 can nf Ion I it
well enough, nnd I will seek somo worthy
mechanic, out of employment, and give
him the job. Let thoso who t,null, nnd
those win must, retrench ; but let those
who have to spend, spend wisely nnd well.
He who hoards tip his Master's wealth,
when he should expend it, may not be less
criminal than he who squanders it. Mr.
Chnse is right ; I will follow his examplo
nnd give employment tons many ns possi

suffering who are unable to w ork.
