Before I trust my fate to thee,
Or pinc@•myy hansl In thine,
'Before I let thrfutuse give
Color and form to mine,
Before I peril all for thee, question thy mull
to-night for me.
I break all slighter bonds, nor feel
A shadow of regret :
Is there onto link within the past
That holds thy spirit yet ?
Or is thy faith as clear and free, as that which
I can pledge to thee?
Does there within thy dimmest dreams
A possible future shine,
Wherein thy life could heneeforth breathe,
Untouched, unshared by mine?
If so, at any pate or cost, 0 tell me before all
is loot.
Look deeper still. It thou mist feel
Within thy inmost soul
That thou hest kept a portion bAck,
While I have staked the whole.
Let no false pity spare the blow, but in true
mercy tell me so.
Is there within thy heart a need 1
That mine cannot fulfil ?
One chord that any other hand
Could better wake or still?
Speak now,lest at some future day, my whole
life wither and decay.
Lives there within thy nature hid
The demon spirit Change,
Shedding a passing glory still
On all things new and strange?
It may not be thy fault alone—but shield my.
heart against thy own.
Couldst thoti withdraw ,thy haw:lane day,
And answer to my elahn,
That Fate, said that to-day's,faistehe—
Not thou—had been to'hlspie
Some soothe their conscience tittnil but thou
wilt surely warn and save to now.
Nay, answer not-. 4 dare Doi boar d
The word. would come **late ;
Yet I would opore thee all remoras ;
So comfort thokusy Fate—.

ployer bad been in the habit of furnishing
certain artielas to the town, and under the
new systorl was likely to fall below the
amount he had recelVed in former years.
So he thought Mr. Simmons had meddled
too much ia town finks, and Luke took
up the strain and piped freely upon it. He
knew nothing of the causes which led to
Mr. Simmons' course—he only knew that
that gentleman's character was before the
public and we went into it. But this was
not the only case. A man who can speak
recklessly of one individual will speak in
the same manner of others; and a man who
can thus thoughtlessly speak at one time,
is likely to speak at any time.
Luke Wharton had been fur some time
anxious to go into some business on his
own account, and the opportunity at
length preheated itself; or, at all events he
saw a good opening to make arrangements
to that end. His old employer, who had
done business enough, was willing to sell
out. He told Luke if he could find a part
ner who would pay cash sown for half the
store;and its good will, the Other half
might UMW& for several years On a mort
gage. So Luke cast about him, and was
not long in finding the man he soutpit.
Thomas Lyon, a young man of a neigh
boring town, was ready to enter into such
a partnership, and he considered that the
thorough knowledge of the business, and
the intimate acquaintantance with the
customers which Luke would bring to him
would offset the Interest he might have to
pay for the money he would be obliged to
It was all arranged, and Luke Wharton
was 'happy. Thomas Lyon would raise
the four thousand dollars necessary to be
paid down, sad he would soon be in a
position where he could not only enjoy the
honor and satitiEution of doing business
fur himself, but where he could lay up
money. And he 141113 the, mere satisfied
because smother party had been talking of

do you wean by that?" asked
.Mrs. Wharton,
mess just. what I slily returned
Luke. "I wouldn't trust him an inch.”
"But what do you know against him,
my son?"
I know enough. He would have
bought our store if he could; and he meant
to do it in an underhand way. lie knew
that I wanted it, and yet he tried his best
to work me out."
" But how do you know this?"
"How do I know?"--why I know it
well enough. I know that he went to my
employer, Mr. Green, ()fibre(' to purchase
the whole; and I know that he intimated
that I might never be able to pay my half.
I tell you he isn't to be trusted."
" I hope you have not spoken thus to
any oneelse," Bald the old lady with much
" Why do you hope that?"
"Because it would have been very
wrong. I know Mr. Lovejoy, is lan eccen
tric man, and very set, and even bitter in
Wa prejudices; but I never heard a lisp

"I.have spoken my mind of him," re

shall speak so again."

sternly yet tenderly. ' "Do not say so.

Whit a blew was this! how high had
he built his hopes upon the bright prospect
before him—how proudly ho had dwelt
upon the flattering promise of the future—
and how heavy was the fall. lie paced to
and fro in the garden, and finally he reas
oned calmly on the subject. At first he
had muttered deep imprecations upon the
head of Samuel Lovejoy; but when he
came to read the letter again he was forc
ed to think and &el differently.
" A week ago he had arranged plans in
your favor," he read.
"I was mistaken, he said to himself."
"While I thought he was trying to work
me out he was in reality trying to help
me. Ire was really to let Thotmis have
four thousand dollora to be my partner.
What a fool I have Went Why could not
I have known that he was Lyon's uncle,
and my friend."
"My son!"
Luke started--turned and beheld his
"What is this?" she asked.
Ile banded l4er the letter, and she read
" What shall I do?" he asked.
"What have you proposed to do?"
" Nothing. I know not what I can do."
" You can give up the store, and all
the bright hopes you had based upon it."
"Oh--I cannot do that, mother."
"Then you can do better. Go to Mr.
Lovejoy, and tell him frankly that you
have been at fault, and that henceforth
you will do so no more."
" I cannot."
"Then you must do the other thing—
give up all. You have done very wrong,
and if you have not the courage to ac
knowledge it to him against whom the
wron g has been done, then yon deserve no
favor that he can grant. Think of it, my
son; and as you think remember this: If
you come honorably out of this, it may
prove the best lesson you have ever receiv
ed. God be with you, Luke, and - may gpod
sense ale reason prevail."
She iet bim, and he remained skate in
the garden for half an hour. Then he went
to the stable and got a horse, and rode
away to see Samuel Lovejoy. lie found
the old gentleman at home, and after he
had overcome his embarmasinent, he stat
ed the object of his vist.
" You thought that I meant to work

perhaps we can talk."
