FAITH ROPE, CHARITY.
Three bright angels by God were sent
To ease the pains of Humanity ;
On their mission of mercy these spirits went,
Their names were Faith, Hope and Chart
They paused at Poverty's rude door,
When each revealed her cherished plan,—
How she would best assist the poor,
And give relief to suffering man.
Said gentle Faith, with patient love
I will make known the way to Heaven ;
Will all hid weight of sin remove,
And he shall feel he is forgiven.
Said pleasing Hope, These *Herd flowers.
Which 1 front Paradise have brought,
Will brighten all his weary hours,
And give him many a pleasant thought.
Their name, you know, is cheerfulness ;
They will anxiety beguile,—
Will chase away unhappiness,
And lead him on to God the while.
bald Charity, The task be mine—
The gracious Shepherd will approve--
To till his soul with light divine,
To fill his heart with sacred luxe.
His nature will expanded be ;
His sympathy will larger grow ;
Forgnial of his misery,
He then will feel another's woe.
THE TWO ANGELS
God called the nearest angels who dwell' with
him above :
The tenderest one vves Pity, the dearest one
"Arise," Ho said, "my angels !a wail of woe
Steals through the gates of Heaven, and sad
dens all within.
"My harps take up the mournful strain that
from a lost world swPl'.s,
The smoke of torment clouds the light and
blights the asphodels.
"Fly downward to tkat under world, and on its
souls of pain
Let Lore drop smiles like sunshine, and Pity
tears like rain !"
Two faces bowed belore the Throne veiled In
their golden hair ;
Four white wings lessened swiftly down the
dark abyss of air.
The way was strange, the flight was long ; at
last the angels came
Where swung the lust and nether world, red
wrapped in rayless flame.
There Pity, shuddering, wept ; but Love, with
faith too strong for fear,
Took heart Irum God's almightiness and smiled
a smile of ...leer.
And lo ! that tear of Pity quenched the flame
whereon it fell,
And, with the sunshine of that smile, hope en
tered into Hell I
Two unveiled faces full of joy looked upward
to the Throne,
Four white wings folded at the feet of Him
who sat thereon !
And deeper than the sound of seas, more soft
than falling flake,
Amidst the bush of wing and song the Voice
Eternal epake :
"Welcome, my angels ! ye have brought a ho
lier joy to Reayen ;
Henceforth its sweetest song shall be the song
of sin forgiven !"
A SKETCH FROM REAL LIFE.
"Father of mercies, condeseend
To hear "or fervent prayer,
White now our brother we commend,
Tu thy paternal care."
Sweetly and solemnly these words float
ed out through • the summer
bor.ie on the musical tide of many voices,
and three young men paused in their wild
carousal, and with half-uplifted glasses,
listened till the last strain died softly
"What is that, Burton ?" asked one of
them, turning to the bar keeper.
"Another infernal temperance humbug
added to the rest that hold their meetings
in the lecture-room of the church at the
corner," was the sneering reply. "I wish
it was a mile off, for I'm. getting tired of
tbeir,noise; - ; One eve.iing.Wi4.the Good
'femplars ; the next, Temple of Honor,
and the next, something else, all the
week through. To-night the Sons of
Temperance meet there for the first time;
I wouldn't cry if the whole establishment
should burn doWn some time." And his
dark, evil face, flashed with anger.
"Why, Burton, what can there be 111
that singing to annoy you so much ? If
it all sounds as sweetly us .that we have
just heard, I don't think it can be objec
tionable," said the second.
_ "Oh ?. no, of cour6e.not ;" and ,another
hideous sneer curled his ugly lip. _ "Al
though I know they are my sworn ene
mies, combined to ruin me and all en
gaged in this business ; although I know
that one of my beat customers, a man
who has Spent hundreds of dollars here,
has been caught in " their trap, and is, at
this very moment going through a sol
emn rigmarole that will prevent him from
crossing this threshold agath ; and though
he is not the Brat, by half dozen, that
has gone the 'same way, still, I have no
reason to feel iojiired or annoyed when
their cursed bowling is firrever in uly

"Stand by the Right though the Heavens fall?'
The half-empty glasses were filled to
the brim, and the young man continued
it: a tone of mock euh 'unity.
"Coati:ion to teetotalers 1"
The speaker and one other drained
their glass:s, but the one called Lester,
merely touched with his lips the spark
ling beverage, and then 'sat with a grave ,
abstracted air, strangely unlike his jovial

little song that roused Burton's ire ;
!hose words, 'our brother,' had a pleasant
"Oh I yes ; that's one of their tricks ;
they make a fellow believe they think the
world of him,—"
His attention was required at the b'%r,
and he ceased abruptly, while the third
of tl.e trio of young men. Fred Prince,
looked at his watch and remarked that
"if they were going to the theater, it was
time they mere off," and nodded to Barton

bar, they all went out, and were soon. iu

ing to he free from its thraldom, to rise
abuva its degredation to a higher, nobler,
upper state, and take possession of his
entire being,. Conscious of his danger,
he had twice or thrice made feeble efforts
to reform ; but the power of habit and
the influence or evil assoc;ates had hell
him a captive, and he was floating swiftly
and madly down the dark current of ruin
and despair. To-night, however, con—
science was again aroused ; the words of
that simple ode had strangely touched a
hidden cord in, his breast, and he longed
to be called "brother" by those who would
gather around him, with earnest trater—
ternal sympathy. When they left the
theatre, he declined to drink with his
friends, as was their usual custom before
they parted for tho night, and hurried off
to his room, to escape their wondering
He avoided them as much as possible
dnriug the week, and positively r4nsed
to drink on two occasions when urged to
do su ; and when Tneeday evening, the
regular "spree time" arrived, h seat was
vacant, and his glass untouched, while
Worth and Prince wondered cunonslq at
his unaccustomed tardiness.
- Young gentlemen, I think it's all up
with your chum," said the bar keeper. "I
passed him on the street this evening in
c:nse confab with the wiutt•do•you cull-

ranee estaAishment, and I hedrd him say,
'Yes, I'll be there promptly at eight.' So
vou see there's little hope for him now.—
if I thought as much of him
as you two seem to, I'd go there before
they comme. - eed their now•wow, and try
and talk him out of it"
"That's it.." exclaimed Prince. "It's
not quite eight ; will you go George ?"
And he sprang to his feet.
"Indeed I will !" was the emphatic re
ply. "We'll beard the lion in his den,at.d
rescue our friend ; for we can't afford to
loose him. I know some one has per
suaded him against his will."
In a few moments they were in the
ant--room,and almost the first one they
saw was Lester. As his glance fell upon
thew. he advanced to Leet them with a
jnyfur expression on his pale, earnest
face. and, grasping a hand of each, he
draw them aside
"rime you come to take this import
ant step with me, boys ?" he asked ; and
before either could reply, he continued
rapidly, "I am so rejoiced to know it. 1
should not have kept you in ignorance of
my intentions, but I !eared your per
suasions might weaken toy resolves, as
they often have done before ; but after - I
was safe, I never intended to rest till you
were also. How pleasant it will be for us
to commence life anew," And his hand
some face lighted urnwith a beaming smile
which the first words of his companion
changed to a sad look f dissapoilitmeut.
,"Not we ! But we've come to keep you
from making a fool of yourself. You
won't stick to this affair a month, F nd
then you'll be expelled and disgraced ;
and how will you feel then ? Come,'Foni
it is not too late to back out. Give up
ibis freak, and if you think we are MI go
ing it trio strong, put on the brakes
a little to please you ; but don't go and
forsake ns after we've been friends so
long. We didn't expect it of you, Toni."
"I am not going to forsake you. unless
,you persist in your present course. I am
determined to lead a different life from
this time ; and my aged parents shall
never again blush for their son, nor be
grieved by his unworthy conduct. George,
Fred, I entreat you, do not go away from
here until you are pledged to total absti
nence. "P - utting on the brakes,' as von
call it, will do no good ; I have tried it
too often myself." .
The young 'men were -visibly' affected
by this earnest appeal, especially Worth,
who hastily brushed away a tear ; but
',hey could not be persuaded, and, as an
officer came to guard thy outer door, pre
paratory to opening the meeting, they
went gloomily back to the saloon.
"What did he say ?" eagerly asked Bur
ton, as the: sat down to the table con
taining their half-empty glasses. Is he
coming back ?'
"No ! confound it all, Tom Lester i 4
not the man to turn back Whet, he firmly
resolved to . : do a thing. and- we might
have known if, and saved ourselves the
trouble of going atter him. Why, he
actually tried to Lret. Mt to go in with him'
to-night, and I retitle believe a little more
talk would have fixed George. What do
you think of that ?"
The only reply was a muttered cow.
"'Ali I Mil fellow," laughed Prin ce

"let's walk out and get uway
,from ' this .
place frit' awhile." And they 'passed fart
the street again.
They extended ,their, walk some dis
tance, George continued silent and moody
Fred rattling .away in a boisterous man
ner, reckless and careless. • Presently they
retraced their steps, and, almost before
they were'conscioas of it, found them
selves immediately 'opposite the church
edifice, in the lower loom of which the
Sons of Temperance were holding their
meeting. George involulaary paused and
"See here, Worth, you are taking Tom's

Awd the thoughtless Fred, walk
ed off, singing gaily: •
"Let us now be happy and gay,
Banish Car all care and sorrow ;
Nis - dual says enjoy to-day, •
, • Though trouble come to-morrow."
George Worth, standing where his corn
panion bad left him, gazed with a sort of
fascination at the closed windows oppo
sire; through which the light waslaintly
gleaming, and communed with hia own
thoughts, which Lester's sudden resolve
and his appeal to Prince and himself had
put into a kind of tumult that could not
tie Stifled. He, too, was beginning to wish
for something higher and better than the
degrading pleasures of the intoxicating

ode, and is the most beautiful and impres
sive in our sublime rituah.was revealed to
his startled gaze. He could not hear; but
for a brief moment he saw the manly
head of hia friend Lester bowed, almost
reverently.' beneath the fair hands that
performed their solemn office so grace—
fully and earnestly, and then all was
shut from his sight. But it had thrilled
his heart strangely, and,through the long
*hours of an almost sleepless night, he re
viewed his past life. and longed for cour
age to break the fetters that bound him
to his evil habits and associates. But he
was weak - And the mxt evening and the
next found him carousing with Prince
and other boon compan ions. Then con
science pierced him keenly, and for two
consecutive nights he locked himself in
his room, resolving that he would not
yield to temptation.
The struggle was fierce, but the powers
of evil were vampisned ; and when rtn.
'other Tuesday evening rolled around,
another seat was vacant, and Prince sat
ildne the little table, around which
the trio had so often gathered.
*-Where is Worth ?" inquired the bar—
-"Gone up, over there,' was the laconic
reply, as, without raising his eyes, he
pointed significantly toward the church.
"You don't mean to say he has follow.
ed Lester's lend ?"
"Yes, bat I du mean it; they've pretty
nearly put him thrmigh by this time, and
I'm alone in my glory."
A terrible oath fell from Burton's lips,
and he said tauntingly :
`•You'll be the next to give up your
freedom, and be tied down with pledges
"Nut I! Tom and George may go their
way rejoicing ; but I in not ready to give
up my free, gay life fur morality and cold

glass to the brim, and draining the first
"This is for myself! Now for Torn
Lester," and the second was emptied.-
-This is for George Worth. Now bring
me some brandy."
Burton hesitated a momentbut a fierce
look trout the excited young man warned
hint, and the firey liquid was brought,
and the glasses again tilled. As he emp
tied the contents of the first, the bar
keeper laid his hand on his shoulder.
"Fred, it is to my advantage to let you
drink as much as you want, but I don't
Ike to see you injure yourself. You had
a good supply on board before yon'came

"Very well ; I'll chant a requiem to
the memory of my departed chums."

A Patient Wife.
She's a little t,it of a woman, all pa•
tieuce and sunshine,
,atid I'd spoil the
best silk hat that money could buy for
the privilege of lending her my umbrella
in a rain storm.
She's married, and she's got an old
rhinoceros of a husband. He' makes it a
practice to come home tight at 11 o'clock
every other night, and. has for years, and
he can't remember that she ever gave hFm
a Cross word about it. When he falls in
to the hall she is waiting to close the door
and help him back to' the sitting-room,
where a good fire awaits him. She-draws
off his boots, unbuttons his collar, helps
hint off with his coat, and all ; the tune
she is saving:
"Poor Henry ? HoW sorry lam . .that
you bad. this attack of vertigo! I'm
atraul that you will be found dead by the
roadside some night,"
"Wazzer mean by verzi"o?" he growls
But she helps him off with his vest and
pleasantly con tin nes .
"I'm so,,giud you got home all right. I
hope the come when you can
pass more of your lime at home. It is
dreadful' how your business drives you."
"What bizzuness, was yet talking !bout
"Poor.one; how hot your head is!" she
continues, and presently he breaki doivn
and weeps and exclaims •
"Yezzur—zion's a'orse—wearing zelf out

"Hight . here,, my dear!" she replies;
and she hands them out, all. blacked up.
Ifs he wants a dress or a hat or a Cloak
and 'he yelli out that household expenses
are eating him up, she rever "sasses" him
back,'nor tells. him that she could have
married a congressman, nor deplanes, that
she will write tuber mother . and tell, her
just how it is.
"That's so, my dear—times are bard„
she says, and she gets op just as good' a
dinner as if ihe had left her 850.
He may come home tight at sapper
time, but she is not shbe,ked. She re
marks that it is an unexpected pleasure
to - have him' homy So early, and she pre
tends not to notice his stupid look. He
sees three chairs where there is but one,
and in trying, to sit down he , strikes the ,
floor like the lall,of a derrick.
"Whnzier jaw zbat chair 'way' for ?" he ,
yells; and she reptieet
