Nay, speak no lit i a klndlr word
Can never Iv a sling behind t
And oh, to breath each tale 've heard
I far beneath a noble tnlud ;
For oft a baiter seed I sown .
By chosing thus a kinder plan i
For if bnl little good we've known,
Let' speak of all lh good we can.
Gte me lh heart thai fain would hide,
Would fain another's fault effitra.
How can it please our human prid
To prov humanity but baa ?
Ko, let it reach a higher mode,
A nobler estimate of man ;
Re earnest In the search of gooJ.
And sptak of all lh bed w can.
Then speak no ill, but lenient b
To other's foelint as your own t
If you're lb first a fault lose,
He not lb first lo make it known.
For life is bul a pissing flood j
No lip can tell bow brief lb stay i
Be earnest in III search for good
And apeak of all lb best we may.
From Saturday Night.
Uotlo Tota wan taking off liis over

It struck Uncla Tom, wlillo they

Later ia tbe evening Wallace Cur
tis came in, and then untie saw the
light come to Hetty's eyes, and iho
bloom to ber checks, spits of the half
frightened glances the cabI at hr
mother. He gUoccd st bis sister too,
and ssw that sho sat upright as a
post as stern ood grim as she al
ways lookod when sho was awfully
displeased ; so bo concluded be knew
the other balf too. . .
He saw Hetty jerk hr bnd awsy
from Squire t'urker, whort the visi
tors diparted, and, standing purposely
between bis irate sister and the youn
ger ones, he saw Wallace Curtis take
the same Iittlo hsnd and raise it to bis
lips to tho shadow. i .
.And after they were f one, be ssw
that Hetty kept the other little hsnd
olaspcd over tbe one wbi'oh had re
coived tbe carese, aa - if she would
keep tbe sweet imprest there as long
as abe eonld. ; , ...
Uncle Tom bad half an idea that
alter she had shortly dismissed Hetty
to bod, his sister Maria aiosnt to eon
suit him rogardlog tbe affairs. Dut
sister Ma.-la knew soft-hoarted Uncle
Tom too wsll for that. JJoaides, ahe
was provoked at him for not tolling
her more about bis own stTalrs. Many
timss she had triod to find out wholh-
er or not hie busiaess in tbe city wa
prosperous, lot boyood saying "he

woeld tell her Bothio;, . 80, as he
r "Id eot eobflde bis affair to her,
he saw llmt any agency ho hud must
bo thronjth Hetty herself.
Next day he watched for nnolhrr
chanco to sponk with Hetty, nnd a
he stood bei-iile hor nt the pnrlot win
dow, Squire Torkcr passed by. Pee
ing llotty, ho nmJo a smirking bow
which eho only answered by n cold
ood, and theb Uoile Tom o-iltod :

With a look which showed tho un

And Sqtiiro Parker is rich, Is he ?"
" Ves; ami fifty ycsr.i el l, nnd as
ugly as sin, as you have Keen your

ker ?" pursued Uncle Tom.
" Ve. Oh, uncle, what Rhill I do ?
They hnve determined that I bll
mnrryhim at Christmas, nnd that is
only n week off, What shall wo do,
Undo Tom?"
" Well perhaps wo will sco what
can be done," said Undo Tom slow
ly. " Keep quiet, Hetty, nod if I
eon help you, I Will.''
IKtty gavo bira a thankful ghinco.
for her mother coming In, alio darol
do no more. Hut she sighed ns sha
thought that only inouey could help
ber, nnd I nclo Tom probably lmd
ootie to spare.
I'ncie Tom's sympathy did not, in-di-ed,
8oem likely to da much gjod,
for the day befyi e Christmas came,
and he had never even said another
word lo lletly. .Early in tho morn.
Ing, uncle went over to tho village.
He met Wallace Curtis, nnd tuld him
lhat Heity wanted him to come out
in tho nfternoon nnd tnko her sleigh
riding. Wsllace looked vory much siirpii!
cd, fur Hetty hud never mado sucb s
rcqtioH of hlin before ; but he prom
ised lo cotno, and then Undo Tom
wcut homo.
At three o'clock, accordingly, up
drovo Wal.uee, in a handsome sleigh,
wilh two sfront? bay horses. Hetty
could not quite conceal hot' surprise,
ut which Wallace looked nmch puz
rled, but only rcpealod his invitation
to go out ridin;j.
Hotly gavo a startled glunca at Lor
mother. That U ly promptly poke up
" Hetty connot no out this after.

jgly yet willingly obeyed.
contnina no h tltey drove off, Undo Tom
oK LCAVetty occupied the back scat, and
Vfsllacetho front, at which sister
Maria looked wsll pleased.,
Dut bar expression would havo
changed bad she eeeo them just after
they left the town, for then Undo Tom
said :
"Mr. Curtis, I have a fancy for try
ing yoar team. I can handle a horse
if! km a city nfno. Please chanco
scats, won't you f'V
Wallsco, nothing loth, immediately
did 10, looking very much delighted
with tho change. It was astoolshieg
to see how deeply Unole Tom instant
ly became absorbed in those horses,
snd as for the lovers, tbey really were
so absorbed in esoh other that they
did not even noj,ico which way Uoolo
Tom was driving, until ho stopped nt
larce white gato, loading ope snowy
lane td a pretty farm-bouto.
Then Hetty asked :
" Why, Uncle Tom, where are you
going ?' -
' " Going to take yon In here (v see a
little place I bought to-day," answer
sd Uncle Tom springing out. and
throwing Carl is tho lines to drive thro'

" Why, this is Treatoa's plaoo f'sx-

"This I Mr. Curtis nnd his wife,

girl coorfcticl prettily, snd Wallsco

Why, uncle !"
" Well, if you ore not, yo;i soon

of to prevent it is to havo you marry

" That I won't spoko up Wallnco .
And etfy, through her crimson

" IJut is this really your place,

" Xo ; It's yours," suij Unole Tom,
" Ours !' tried city and Wallace,
in a breath.
" Yours.' My Christmas present to

" IJut I 1 hmnht mother thought

" Will I happen to I.j quite aMc lo

And that young geutli tnan iiiHlaol-

"Cwno, enmo, now! 'ore's thc'hit'fly tilTectiugtlin liver, kidueys nnd

said tho good bid uncio.
And so they did And then uncle
Tmhi and iho parson rtsyed to supper
with tbcm j und Molly, the smiling
maid, whom Undo Tom had scut to
the city for, and whoe father was

t'nelo Tom would not let them go
hack that night, caying he would ride
in with tho paiNon, and bring sister
Maria to see them in the morning
Sj " Mr. Curtis aud his wife" took
pos.scn.ion ot their pretty homo at
once, and everybody, except Squire
I'urker, was well pleased.
And the last I knew of them, their
beloved I'nclo Tom was speuding

youngest boy on his knee, whilo two
olher children rummaged his pockets
