When I approach the borders of
the Territory of Young Manhood, it
is•not without, to a certain extent, a
feeling of diffidence. My fears are
conceived of experience and born of
observation. I am Fatty well ac

and I understand that since I left
there some ten or fifteen years ago,
that what changes have occurred in
the manners and habits of life, have
been such as rather to confirm my
As you approach the Territory of .
Young Manhood you at first have to
sail through a region of " perpetual
squalls," and if you have the fortune
to get through this in about ten years
you may consider yourself lucky.
It is desirable when starting out in
life to have the small-pox, whooping
cough, measles, and mumps, all in
one season (and, if possible, all at
once, so as to save time), andlor this
purpose your/mother ought to take
you to every public gathering, includ
ing church service; and as a consid
eration for what the congregation has
to give you in the line of .diseases,
you can turn oft a variety of sounds
for the amusement of the audience.

When you come to the age of ten,
say, you approach the Territory of
Youth. Such things as slippers, and
other instruments of maternal tor
ture, are played, and in that region
there is no restra'..nt except that su
perinduced by a quasi loyalty to the
pater familihs. This Territory of
Youth lies between latitude ten and
As you enter this province the peo
ple are all small, but then are grow
ing big very fast. The inhabitants
are dirty, ragged and saucy. It re
quires two sewing machines to keep
a pair of trousers on one of them.
They eat with a flourishing appetite,
and want help everywhere except at
table.. They go to "auntie's,' but
auntie dcesn't see them unless ahe
happens down Street. They culti
vate habits of acquisitiveness and ftu
gality, and play marbles for " keeps"
and they keep them. They give with
a generous • hand to support such
charitable institutions as Van Am
burg's Show and Pattie Stewart's
Minstrels. On these occasions they
never go alone. The mother, father,
two aunts and a cousin go along " to
take care of the children." This
shows healthy regard for the wel
fare of the tender mind.
But passing out of the territory of
this strange people you come into the
borders of Young. Manhood, and here
you, find the all-hredest smartest set
of inhabitants (latitude sixteen. to
twenty) that the sun of heaven shines
on. They know, more than Methuse
lah did at seven hundred and ninety

nary persons could not teach them
anything. They exercise exclusive
jurisdiction in their own territory,
and the " governor " don't consider
it healthy to put on much authority.

TEAT YOUNG MAN WANTED..
A great contest is Ong on in re
ference to him. • Themare two great
competitors for him. The young man
has given scarcely the slightest at
tention to this great tact: But there
is a game of fearful. import' in pro=
meg, in which' he is the stake, end
the issue is getting nearer every hour.
The Competitors are Satan and the
Saviour. Satin wanted Peter ; but
he lost that prize. But he often suc
ceeds, and if be does in this case, why
does he want that young man ? what
will he do with him?
1. He will make him abuse, and,
so far as possible, destroy all the no
ble powers God has, given him. That
is just what Satan hai.done with his
own; he has been in total opposition
to the will of God in this regard. Not
one of his great endowments is used
to glorify the Infinite Giver. And he.
will have a complete imitator in that
Young man, if he succeeds with him:
Not one hour's service shall the bless
ed God have of all those noble pow
/ Nor shall the yohng man taste,
for one moment, the noblest of all
pleasures—the friendship of God.
His abuse of his powers will make
such an alienation between him and
his Maker as will turn him away from
all relish for, or seeking of, any plea
sure in his Maker's service, and he
will seek pleasure anywhere else than
in the Infiriite fountain of good. •
3. And Satan, gaining him for a
prize, that young man will turn his
own influence in the direction of in
volving others in the same copdem- -
nation. His bad example, his false
opinions and errors, his words, con
temptuous of good and seductive to
evil—in a word, his whole character
will come into agreement with the
great Deceiver, and - co-operate with
him in drawing others into as deep
guilt and misery as that in which he
is himself involved.
In short, Satan wants that young
man, so as to make as complete a
wreck of him as to all goodness and
happiness, as he has made of him
self—involving the issue, that his vic
tim shall know, and that forever, all
that is terrific in the fact of being a
companion of the Devil and his an
All this Satan has clone with count
less numbers of young men, and he
is playing. at the dreadful game of

But there is another e,om . petitorfor
that young man. The Saviour wants
him. What for?
L To repair all the damage sin has
already done him, and secure all his
noble powers for the uses for which
they were bestowed. Reason, con
science, imagination, the affections— .
have all b.en misused. The harp
strings have been weakened or bro-
ken. - Bnt the Lord Jesus Christ
would resto're all and make heavenly
music in the soul.

RAPIDITY Or TENET IN DREAM-
A very remarkable circumstance,
and an important point of analogy is,
says Dr. Forbes Winslow, to be found
in the extreme rapidity with which
the mental .operations are performed,
or rather with which the material
changes on which the ideas depend
are excited in the hemispherical gan
glia. It world appear as if a whole
series of acts, that would really occu
py a long lapse . , of tin' ie, pass ideally
through the mind in one instant. We
have in dreams no pereeption of the
lapse of time—a strange property of
mmd ; for if such be also its property
when entered into the disembodied
state, time will appear to us eternity,
The relations of space as well as of
time are - also annihilated so that
while almost an eternity is compress
ed into a moment, infinite space is
traversed more swiftly than by real
thought. There are numerous illus
trations of this principle on record.

less than half-grown, and wore a pair
of -tow pants, notched about two 'tidi

buy something with it, as if it was

frOm him to fill the jug next time.

what I should get With it. He -an

and an arithmetic, but did not lmow
whether his money-would by all. I
went out, got what he wished, and

come into my office..when'a trial was
progressing, slip his jug under the
seat, cross his legs in front to keep it
out of sight, and listen for 'inure to
the lawyers. I lost sight of him for
a season, until my son coming bottle
from Mount Morris Seminary, inform
ed me he was there at school. When
next I heard from him' was after I
came to California ; he Was a partner
of a lawyer I knew' in Galena. The
next I noticed was in z anlllinois-, pa

then after that he had gone South in

THE YOUNG POSTMASTER
Abraham Lincoln - was owe post
master in the small village lof New '
Salem, "out West." He then went
to Springfield to study law, and for
years had herd work to earn his
bread and butter.. Fighting_ with
poverty is a hard fight. One day a
post-office agent came round to col
lect a banana). due the Washington
office from the . New Salem office.
The' bill was $17.60: Dr. Henry, a
friend of "poor abe," happenedto fall '
in with the agent, and was as sure as
sure couldhe that he bad nothing in
his pockets to pay itwith. He went,
therefore, to the office, in order to
lend,him the money, or offer to lend
When the agent presented the
draft, Lincoln asked the :man to sit
down, and sat down hir4elf, with a
'very puzzled look upon his face." He
then stepped_ out, went over to his
boarding house, and came back- with
an old stocking under his arm. This
he untied; arid:txmred out upon, the
table n quantity of small silver coin
and, "red cents." • These they count
ed; and found exactly $17.60, just
the amount called for; and, moreover,
it was the vety money called for, for
on leaving the office, the young post
master tied np the money, and had
kept it by him; itwaitingi t he legal call
to give it up. .
On paying it over, "I never use,"
said he, "even for a time, any money
that is not mine. This money, I
*new, belonged to 'the government
;and I had no right to exchange or
use it for any purpose of my own."
That is the right and true ground
to take. If the money is entrusted
to your care, never touch it, never
use it. lam not now talking about
' cheating or stealing, but taking wed
using money.with the intention of re
turning' it. Money in trust should
always be kept 'apart from all your
own business; and held sacred. By
neglecting 'this, and not making good

indeed, no harm in just using it. It
is easier; perhaps, to use than to keep
it; easy enough, too, one may - think
make it good when called for. All
this shows how naturally one can
slide into loose habits. If anybody,
had a good excuse for using $17.60 of
government money, Mr. Lincoln had

Mark Twain a cap#al story.
Thirekt one of hiskaat:
"One day when I and my -brother
went into the wotyls, ballot a chick
en-hawk and a crow"
and while we
were 16 -in the albedo - udder a
tree he I the tam out of the
birds, and theeround , and
talking, he finally fooling
built the crow's
tail into the chicken-hawiletransom.
When we saw what a, neat job it was
we thought we would keep it. When
we got home we were late for supper
and we just dropped it on the porch
and raised in. We had usort of
hope that the old man and
our would get bit With it any
way, because they were always pot
tering over geology , natural history,
or something they didn't know any
thing-Amt. we were at sup
per, they came along and found the
bird, and we heard them discussing
it and talking all sorts of 'astonish - -
meat. Directly_ the-old man came
in having the bird by the leg, and
• "Boys, where did yon get , this
"Shot him in the Woods,uir."
"Did you ever come across any
bird like , this around here before?"
"No sir, this is the dist." i
" Boys do yon know what you've+
done ? You've discovered somethiig
that will male you known every
where. The bird is of a new species. '
And then he walked.. out, And we
heard him and uncle collude that
they. would label it with their own
names and send it to Professor Hig
enbaum, at Albany. Pretty soon
though, the old man took hold of the
tail and it pulled out; and we heard
both of them swear & little. .When
we came out the bird was lying on
one side of the fence and the tairon
'the other. We did not dare to laugh,
nor let on about hearing their talk;
But about a month after this there
came along one of the rattiest speci
mens of a boy you—ever saw, and
wanted to stop with us. He was all
rags and tatters, :and tired out:with
numing away from pis master some
where. His shirt was
half-mast through his trousers, and
two-thirds of the . tail was a piece of
blue flannel that hid been - sewed on.
While the poor devil was eating his
dinner, uncle and the old man were
studying what they had better du
with him. And finally they said,
"By George ! they didn't know what
to do with Wm." , Just then the boy
rose and . swung his colors in view;
and brother Bob says:
"Father, you might send him to
Pitofessor Hagenbatun, at Albany."
It wan the first the Old_man knew
we had overheard the bird talk, and
so he whaled us lxith. He says, "11l

' A few yeaWago, a brge drug firm
in this city adiertised for a boy. Next
day the store waiethronged with ap
plicanti, among them a quaer-looking
little fellow, accord 'ed by a- wom
an, who proved to V his aunt, in lieu
of faithless parents, by whomhe had
been abandoned. Looking-at this
little waif, the merchant in the store
promptly said: "Can't taijce him; plac
es-all ball! besides, he iot - too . small."
"I know •he is small," said the wom
an, "but he is willing and faithful."
There was a twinkle in the bby's eyes
which made . the merchant think
again. A partner in the firm vohm.-
teered to remark that he "did not
see what they wanted of zilch a boy
—he wasn't bigger than a pint of ck
der 1' But after consultation the boy
was set to work.
' A. few days after a cell- was made
on the boys m the store for some one
to stay all night. The prompt -re- ,
sponse of the fellow contrasted
well with the reluctance of others. In
the middle of the night the merchant
looked in to see if all was' right in
the store, and presently '. discovered
his youthful protege• busy sennoring
labels. "What are you doing?" said
he. "I did not tell you to work
nights." "I know you did not tell
- me so, but I thou ght I mig ht'as well
doingbe something." In the morn
ing the cashier got orders to "doub
le that boys wages, for he is willing."
Only soweeks elapsed before a
show of ieasta passed !through
the' streets, and very naturally all
hands in the store rushed to witness
the spectacle. A thief saw histirpor
tunity, and entered at a rear_door to
seize something, but in a twinkling
found himself clutched by the dimin
utive clerk aforesaid, and, after a
struggle was captured. Not only
was a robbery prevented, but Tali*.
ble articles taken from - other stores
were recovered. When asked by the
merchant why he staid behind to
watch when all others quit , their
-the reply -was, 'Tort told me
never to leave the store when others
were absent, and-I thought I'd stay."
Orders were immediately given once
morel: "Double that boy's wages; he
is willing aridfaiWut." To-day that
bOy is getting II salary of $2,500, and
next January will become a member
of the firm.—The Republic. •

One great cause of the poverty of
the present day is, the failure of the
common people to affrma. te small
things. They feel that if they cannot
save large sums :they will not save
anything. They. do not realise how'
a daily addition, belt ever so small,
will soon make a large pile. If the
young men and young women of to

to save a little from , their earnings,

Not only the pile itself will increase,
but the 'desire and ability to increase
it will grow. Let clerk and trades

some of ,our y . outhfol force and v igor
for contingencies. Let parents teach
their children to begin early to save.
Begin at the fountain-head. to control
the stream of a:franc:awe, and then
work will be easy. To choose 'be
