Oftwrutuss: In the year 1856, I unfortunately
was in business in the Artisan Building, which
was destroyed by fire" on the 10th of April. I
had then in use what I supposed was a Fire
proof Safe, but upon opening it I found every
thing was destroyed, and fire burning therein.
You will recoldect, gentlemen, there were
several of your Safes in that fire, also several in
the fire at Sixth and Commerce streets, the next
May, five weeks afterwards, all of which upon
being opened proved they were lire-plkoof in
deed, for I witnessed the opening of the most
of them, and in every case. the contents were
preserved, while Safes of other makers were
,partially or entirely destroyed. lat once con
cluded to have something that I could depend
upon, and purchased one of your Safes.
The Safe I purchased of you at that time was
subjected to a white heat (which was witnessed
by several gentlemen that, reside in the neigh
borhood) at the destruction of my Marble Paper
Factory, 921 Wallace street, on the afternoon
and evening of the 24th inst. After digging the
Safe from the ruins, and opening it morn
ing, I was much pleased to find eventing, con
sisting of books, papers, money and silverware
all right. I sban want another of your Safes as
soon as I can get a place to continue my busi
ness in. I could not rest contented with any
other make of Safes.

of mews. Hubbard & Son was wont to
close, unless the pressure of business com
pelled the partners to keep open until later.
The duty of closing usually devolved upon
Edward Jones, a boy of fourteen, who had
lately been engaged to perform a few light
duties, for which he received the sum of
fifty dollars annually. He was the "boy,'
but if he behaved himself 5.., as to win the
approbation of his employers, his chance
of promotion was good.
Yet there were some things that render
ed this small salary a hard trial to him—
circumstances with which his employers
were not acquainted. His mother was a
widow. The sudden death of Mr. Jones
had thrown the entire family upon their
own resources, and they were indeed but
There was an older sister who assisted
her mother to sew, and this, with Edward's
salary, constituted the entire income of
the family. Yet, by means of untiring
industry, they had contrived thus flu to
live, using strict economy, of course. Yet
they had wanted none of the absolute
necessities of life.
But Marones—Edward's sister—
mejr: shad taken a severe 41014,
which had terminated in a fever. This
not only cut off the income arising from
her own labor, but also prevented her
mother from accomplishing as much as
she would otherwise have been able to do.
On the morning of the day on which
our story commences, Mary had express
ed a longing for an orange. In her fever
it would have been grateful to her.
It is hard indeed when we are obliged
to deny to those we love what would be a
refreshment to them.
Mrs. Jones felt this, and so did Edward.
" I only wish that I could buy you one,
Mary," said Edward, just as he set out
for the store. " Next year I shall receive
a larger salary, and then we won't have to
pinch so much."
" Never mind, Edward," said Mary,
smiling faintly, "I ought not to have ask
ed for it knowing how hard you and moth
er find it to get along without me."
" Don't trouble yo if shout that
Mary," said Mrs. %Tones soothingly,
thoiigh Ml' heart sank within her at the
thought of her empty larder. " Only get
well, and. We shall get along well enough
It was with the memori of this scene
that . Edward went te Ilk stare in the
All around were boxes of rich goods re
presenting thousands of dollars in money.
" Oh," thought he, "if I only had the
value of those boxes, how much good it
would do poor Mary." And Edward
The long day wore away at last, and
Edward was about to close the warehouse.
But as he passed the desk of his employ
er, his attention was drawn to a bit of
paper lying on the floor beneath.
He picked it up, and to his great joy
found it to be a ten dollar bill.
The first thouglit that flashed upon him
was, " How much good this will do Mary;
I can buy her that orange she wants, and
she will have some every day ; and per-
Imps she would like a chicken.'
But a moment later his countenance
"It Isn't mine," he sighed. It must be
Mr. Hubbard's. This is his desk, and he
rust Wive dropped it."
" Still," urged the tempter, he will
never know it. And after all, what are
ten dollars to him ? He is worth a hun
" Still Edward was not satisfied.
Whether Mr. Hubbard could spare it or
.aot, was not„the question. It was right
fullyl his, ,a lima; be given back to him.
"I'll .10) WM this very night," said
Edward. Otherwise. I will be tempted
to keep IL"!
He deterinined to go to Mr. Hubbard's
before he went home. The sight of his
sister would perhaps weaken his resolu
tion, and this must never be. He must
preserve his integrity at all hazards.
He knew where Mr. Hubbard lived. It
was a fine looking house, on a fashionable
street. He had passed it several times,
and wondered whether a man must not
Rol happy who is able to live in such style.
Without unnecessary delay, therefore,
he went to the house, and ascending the
stepsrang the bell.
A. 611 servant came to the door.
"Yee, but he has just come in, and I
don't think he can see you," was the

" I am in his employ," said Edward,
quietly " and I have come from the store.

" Very well, you can come in."
Edward was left standing in the hall,
while Mr. Hubbard was sought by the
" Well ?" he said inquiringly, " has
anything happened ?"
No, sir," said Edward, " but I picked
up this bill near your desk ; and I sup
pose you must have dropped it. I thought
I had better bring it here directly."
"You have done well," said Mr. Hub
bard, " and I will remember it. Honesty
is a very valuable quality in a boy just
commencing a business career. Here
after I shall have perfect confidence in
Edward was gratified by this assurance,
yet as the door closed behind him, and he
walked out into the street the thought of
his sister sick at home again turned upon
him and he thought regretfully how much
good could have been done with ten dollars.
Not that ho had regretted that he had
been honest. There was satisfaction in
doing right but I think my reader will

Mrs. Jones brought some toast to her
daughter's bedside, but Mary motioned it
away. " I thank you for taking the trouble
to make it, mother," she said, " but I
don't think I could possibly eat it."
" Is there anything you could relish,
" No, ,9 she said, hesitatingly,
that we can get. ,,
Mrs. Jones sighed—a sigh which Ed
It was with a heavy heart that Edward
started to the warehouse next mornin,„a.
He had never felt the cravings for wealth
that now took possession of him.
He set about his duties as usual. About
two hours after he had arrived at the
warehouse, Mr. Hubbard entered. He
did not at finst appear to notice Edward,
but in about half an hour summoned him
to the office, which was partitioned off
from the remainder of the spacious rooms
in which goods were stored.
He smiled pleasantly as Edward entered
" Tell me frankly, did you not feel an
impulse to keep the bill which you found
' "I hope•yon monk be offinsded with wee,
Mr. Hubbard," said Edward, " if I say I
"Tell me all about it," said Mr. Hub
bard with interest. " What was it that
withheld you? I shouldnever have known
" I knew that," said Edward.
"Then what withheld you from taking
" First I will tell you what tempted
me," said Edward. "My mother and
sister are obliged to depend upon sowing
for a living, and we live but poorly at
best. But a fortnight since Mary became
sick, and since then we have had a hard
time. Marys appetite is poor, and she
does not relish fOod, but we are able to
get her nothing better. When I picked
up that bill I could not help thinking how
much I could buy with it for her."
"And yet you did not take it?"
" No, air, it would have been wrong
and I could not have looked you in the
face after it."
Edward spoke in tones of modest eon&
Mr. Hubbard went to his desk and
wrote a cheek.
"How much do I pay you now?" he
"Fifty dollars a year, "said Edward.
" Henceforth your duties will be in
creased, and I- will pay you two hundred.
Will that please you?"
"Two hundred dollars a year!" ex
claimed Edward, his eyes sparkling with
" Yes, at the end of the year that will
be increased, if, as I have no doubt you
will, you continue to merit my confidence."
"Oh, sir, how can I thank you?" said
Edward, Lull of gratitude.
"By preserving your integrity. As I
presume you are in present need of money,
I will pay you one quarter in advance.
Here is a check for fifty dollars which
you can get cashed at the bank. And, by
the way, you can have the rest of the day
Edward flew to the bank, and with his
sudden riches hastened to the market,
where he purchased a supply of provisions
such as lie knew would be welcome at
home, and then made haste to an
nounce his good fortune.
A. weight seemed to fall off the hearts of
the mother and daughter as they heard
his hurried story, and Mrs. Jones thanked
God for bestowing upon her son those
good principles which had brought this
And Mr. Hubbard slept none the worse
that•night that at a slight pecuniary sacri
fice he had done a kind action, confirmed a
boy in his integrity and gladdened a
struggling family. If there were more
employers as considerate as he, there
would be fewer dishonest clerks.
QUITE a sensation has been created in
religious circles by the arrival in New
York of the great French Catholic preach
er, Father lolyacinthe. Although profes
sing to be a firm believer in the Catholic
creed, his liberal views and wonderful
powers as a pulpit orator have stirred up
a strong &ding against him among the
dignitaries of the church in Europe. The
object of his visit to this country is not
definitely known. As he does not speak
the English language, he will not have a
very good opportunity to publicly present
his views to the -Jeople here.
