lie went clean through, that quaint
ditty, and ending with a prolonged
note between a howl and a groan, he
sent ills hand to his hat once more
and smiled 'cheerfully. .'
." Where the treasure is," thought
scowling Tibtiree, always watchful of
the gesture. It grew so dark that
-they could -hardly keep the road:
Suddenly Tiburee Menseau tripped
and fell against John Jones in such
wise as to accidentally' knock off . his

came away with aslight tearing feel
as though it was gummed or:pasted
to the hat. • This did hot 'detain the:
skillful Tiburilze half a second, and
the thing was &inc. with such delicate
rapidity that even in daylight it
'night have escaped notice.
‘‘ I have knocked your fiat off,'?
said Tiburce, " Tbii fdtby rosd is
filled with ruts and hole& Oh, I have
it. Here you are:"
The wind howled so that Tiburce
had to repeat his last words. John-
Jones was groping wildly with both
hands in mud and water. He felt
gree4ily for the hat, and meeting the
outstretched hands' of the apologetic
Tiburce, took it and felt within the
lining—at first assuredly, and then
rapidly and undecidedly. Then, with
a wild yell, he *as down on his
knees in the mud and water groping
wrist deep: ,
" What's the matter ?" cried Ti
burce,hugging the little parcel in his
hands: Surely , of value—surely . ;
why such care of it, and why such a
cry of enraged despair at losing it ?
.John Jones made no reply, but
want about on hands and knees in
the mud, still groping.
"What's the matter ?" again cried
Tibitree, touching John Junes on the
shoulder. " Hive you lost anything ?"
" Lost!" said John Jones, voice
lessly. "Who. can tell what I have
lost!" And he groped on in the mud
while Tiburce waited with signal pa
tience. The search came to nothing; -
but it went on until the searcher's
bones were numbed, and until his
hands, could no longer feel the ground
he groped on. Then with heaitY
heart he staggeied to his feet.
" See," said Tiburce, pointing thro'
the heaVy darkness, " there are the
lights; that,is the town. Have you
found whit you lost ?"
With no answer„ but with no sus
picion the stiff-set Briton splashed
on again through unseen mud. Once
or twice he gave:' heavy and heart
rending grd - an-44f of grief and half
of rage. -
" - Surely," said Tiburce to himself,
tightening the grip of his fingers on
the package, " surely valuable."
Splash, splash, for half an hour
through mud and darkness, and nev
efs-a word. John Jones was thinking_
all the way, and in bitter despair was
calling certain- thinks to mind.
" Don't cry, Nell."
This kind of advice is - often easy
to-give and hard to
.obey. :FOr once
it wns as hard to give as to follow.
The adviser's • face twitched • suspi

to copy the example Set . him - by the
advised. But your stiff-built,_bullet
headed yOung Briton would rather
die than- weep, and he controlled
. " Lhaveliever cried through it all
until now," said. the girl between her
sobs; "and it's -j-our,noble kindness
that makes me cry.now."
" Rubbish I" said the bullet-headed
There were three people in the
room—a pretty girl of twenty,.with
a face 'disfigured with tears and a
slight but • graceful form attired •in
_young - Map, with ho
especial pretensions to good look%
but strong and manly, with very ton.;
est gray eyes; a middle-aged woman,
gaunt and Spare, with a spiteful face
and eyes a little rpddish at the rim.
The room,. in which they stood was
almost bare of furniture, and - oblong
'spaces on the wall, where the paper
showed fresher than elsewhere, spoke
.of the recent removal of-pictures ani
mirrors, and g've the place a dis- ;
_Mantled look. .
" Rubbish 1" said the bullet•headed
And. rubbish I say," said the
spiteful-looking female. Noble
kindness !, all! Noble fiddle
sticks! Don't talk to me." ,
Neither of her companions. evincing
the slightest desire to talk to her, the
spiteful-lookint female looked more
spiteful still, and sniffing with much
emphasis, . said, " Oh, ah again, and
added, " Likely story."
He. had allays. said "—the girl
was speakingt—" that I was well, !
vided for, but now this cruel
sale has taken everything.".
" There is still the freehold of the
house," said the young than. -

where, and not even . a decent road
within a mile of it. It just.like
the old idiot to build here." ,
" Ann," said the girl in a voice of
authority, " how dare you ?" .
" Oh, ah,' said the woman again.
".How dare I? To be sure ! Where's
my year's wages with your bills of
sales, eh? It's fit and proper for a
decent, hard-working woman to be
done out of her money .by an old
'hunks like ain't it ?"
" Haven't you had enough money
to.pay Ann her wages?." asked. the
"-..Mbney.or no"' said the woman,

The girl only shook her head and
wept anew. The 'young fellow drew
a lean chamois-leather bag from his
" How much ?" he asked, surveying
the woman sternly:
" Five_pound," she . inswered, - .not
to sneak of layin' gim out and wait
ing here a fortnight to be paid."
The lyoung. man counted! out' five,
Sovereigns from the lean - big, which
lorebore . to:give forth one chink as
he.put it backintobis pocket.
" There is your money, As: soon
as you .can arrange to go I shall be
glad for you to leave."
The woman took the money dis
dainfully and "went her . way. The
young man advanced to.3be girl and
put his arm about her *aist .and
"It's very hard, my darling," he
said, "but it will only bring us to
gether the sooner. I Shall fineern
ployment somewhere soon, and. then
we must get married and face the
whole world together."
The girl made no resistance to this
program:he, and he went on: -
" I'm not altogether sorry that
Yqu're poor, you know, for if you
had been rich I should never have
had the cheek to tell you that I loved
you. That isn't 'together selfish,
for I shall make you happier
than any amount of money would."
It was oddly said, but it looked
likely to .be true. Those gray eyes
of his and his square, plain, manly
face were very holiest and provnca

ing her. belongings. ;, but beyond the
fact that the girl:said once that Ann
had been cruel and ungrateful, they
took no notice of it. The young man
sat down and dreg the girl beside
him on a sofa and made love to her
and dried her,eyes with his handker
chief, and by the time the spiteful
female got her, trunk down-stairs,
with much reiterated bumping from
step by step, the poor grief-worn
thing was smiling at him, though
through eyes which still hart a suspi
cion of tears in them.. By-and-by the
young - man made a dive to his watch
pocket to see what time it was, but
his thumb and finger encountering
nothing but pawn tickets, be with
drew thein with a Smile whiCh was
somewhat grim. The spiteful female
knocked at -the door, and without
awaiting a response entered.
"There's nothing to eat in the
house," she said. "Am I agoin' to
be drove out without a crust?".
The girl's face flushed, and then
became deadly white, and she return
ed no answer; but after, a struggle,
which her quivering, features clearly
indicated, she burst anew into tears.
The young man stooped and , whis
pered in her ear :
" Is that true ?"
" Yes," she sobbed in answer. " I
have no money—not a penny. l !
" Right about face; march !" said
the young man, rising. The spiteful
female, who bad come in for the ex
press purpose of firing this spiteful
shaft, went out exultant.
" That being the case," said the
young man cheerfully when the wo
man has' gone, " you must let me be
your banker." He drew forth the
lean chamois•leather purse again,
and from it extracted one last sover
eign, which he laid upon the table.
"And now," he added, "there Is no
more`time to hise. I must go back
and look for employment at once. I

smoked with-an aspect of deliberate

having wheeled the birrow into a lit

Walter Mackenzie reached London
in due time and walked from Eus
ton to his chambers in Gray's Inn.
Two letters awaited him: , One of
these was in a familiar hand, and
told him that his' friend was away
for another six months" yachting it in
the -Mediterranean. No chance of
help from that quarter. The next
letter looked legal. Probably a dun ;
but it came Ilom Liverpool, and he'
had no creditor there. He read it
eagerly enough at first; but having
got through it; capered around' the
room and Snapped his fingers and
roared "Hurrah I" again, and again,
and again. .

judge Ingham's . Lecture.
The last lecture of the Institute
Course was delivemd on Monday
evening, 16th inst ; b the Iton. Judge
Ingham. • The inclemency of the
weather prevented many from hear
ing this most itteresting lecture ;
still, quite .a large nntnbet' were in
attendance.and were Well repaid for
coming. • •
. The subject of the lecture was
" Subeess in Life." Many men think
to be : successful in life is to get rich
.'famous. •In this sense
Astor, Vanderbilt, Stewart Webster,
Clay and Calhoun . were 'success!' ul . •
ThiS kind of .success is only for the
few, not for the many. Success for
the many is the ;attainment of that
. happiness which the Crea
tor has placed in reach of human
beings. -This degree of happiness
does not come naturally hor by fate,
'nor entirely by
.our own- exertions.
We are surrounded bYuncontrollable
circumstances. yet we have a 'wide
field wherein.,we may choose our
own paths for good or evil. It is not
our place to complain' of our lot in
-life. We must accept the situation
in which we 'find ourselves,-whether
it be in the abodes 'of wealth or pov
erty ; whether vigorous and: healthy
or weak and delicate ; whether with
great intellectual powers _or small.,
Our condition may be made better
or worse, and the resolute.determina
tion of. every one should be to make
it better. Every one may have such
;a determination, but it neOs more,
than a wish and a hope to grapple'
with the great-realities of this life.
We are not in the happY Valley of
Rosselas, - where all that is lieautiful
and. delightful is gathered•arbrind us,
and all that is troublesome and dread

but by-.carefully-constructed charts
and unceasing vigilance. The . tray

the first path that presents itself, but
the one that has been proken to be
safe: No two lives can .be • alike—
each one must mark out for himself
the course he intends to follow. SOme
seek fame; some wealth ;- but the road
-to - happiness does not necessar.ily
lead -to such ends. Wealth which,
comes- as the result of honest labor'
and reasonable frugality ii'desirable;.

for his country and-humanity is more
desirable than the brightest jewels

The ancients' sought only the immoi
tality of a' great name ; men now
prize the . happy immortality of the
soul, and no•plan of a successful life
can be formed which does not include
Some Of the requisites of a success
ful life are health, education, habits,
marriagq politics and religion. Here
are the subjects for seven lectures
condensed into one. Health is the
basis of happiness, and the usual ba
sis of all solid achievements. There
are many examples of those who did
great deeds, with broken, health ; but
these are the exception,not the rule.
Health, then, should e preserved.
Our bodies-are tearfully and wonder
fully made ; we should use them
carefully, not abuse them. Every law
Of health that is broken brings a sure
reward: It may be discomfort;.it
may be the overthrow of life% cher
ished plans; it may be settled dis
ease; it may be. early death. Dis
ease is one of the most widespread
of human evils; it is one of the pa
rentsOf poverty, often the companion
of crime. It often starts from eess
'pools and abodes of filth, and wanders
into the houses of purity and refine
ment. We must, therefore, avoid all
that will give growth to disenie.
Success in life depends largely on

good and Steady habits. A habit of
steady, systematic labor accomplishes
the world's great 'work; The swork
man who has every tool sharp and in
place can finish a job while a careless
workman is getting. ready to do .it.
A skilted habit enables"us tO do, with

time and thought to, learn. The nuni

taketh a city. -'•
The education which conduces to
success in lite is that culture of, mind
hod body which enlarges and strength
ens the mental powers. It may be
obtained in almost all the _conditions
of life. The opportunlties for acquir
.itig knowledge . are now so widely
diffused that the young have only to
'reach out determined hands — and
grasp what they, need. It ..is not
enough to . repeat the words and
'thoughts of otlietes;.--we should learn
to think :And act for-inirseLves, - _SuchT
education contributes. iii many ways.,
to success in life—in fact there is
little to be done without- it•ln these
days, 'eNcept to swing the pick and
shovel.,: 'Besides the practical ad
vantages of education, it contributes
largely.to our happiness. The knowl

things that surround u 3 on every

• A suitable business or employment
is essential to success in life. Even
those who inherit great wealth should'
have some,stt:.ady em ploy ment to give
life an object. So fully is this prin
ci.ple adhered to in RusSia that prin
ces-of the royal faMily are compelled
to 'learn trades, and yonng ladies of
the nobility are taught to cook and

And gather yearly every wile,
'That's Justified by honor. -
