she ran forward and picked op a piece of

just as a number of people cauio by, and
as she did so, ehc saw it money in
fact not lew than a twenty dollar bill !
"Hi is so rich he will never wira it,"
was her first thought, ,'and how much it

Jnlia sold a few more pennies worth of
apples and mtt3 from her Btnall stock, and
thers, as it gre-v dark and the hmp-lighter
joumienced his rounds, she filled her
hrge basket and started homo with her
stock in trade. She walked slowly, for
sbe enjoyed looking into the windows of
the stores and dwellings she pae.vd, and
pwt ot her way led through a neighbor
hood' that had costly mansions, through
the plate-glass windows of which the gas
light streame d j the child for such she
yet was loved to loiter piat those places,
and see the glittering tables in the base
ments, where ladies ia rich dresses, ' and
jrjtlenJcn io fine liaeu and brovlcloth,
were eating of silver.
It was a!l a problem to her as it is ia-
pdceJ ta oM-r people how such a great
difference be ; why her mother, who was
so gentle and f:ood, should toil ia a gt'.rret.
wflile these pcolpe lived in such splendid

they done to de'erroine the difference?
j Such thoughts vague and expressed
! run through Julia's mind, and caused her
o y member the twenty dollar bill that
suine of wetlth that reposed in her pock
ct. and r.he hurried a little at the thought,
and soiiu reached the' lonely retired C3urt
where sba lived with her widowed invalid
wether ar.d little brother. The piece was
! poor, bnt not squalid there was even an
j appearance of neatness . and thrift, in the
i clean loor plate and small pots of gcran
i ium and verb)na thdt rested on the upper
' viodow aill. In that room, Mrs. Pean,
Julia's mother, lived, toiled and suffered,
aud prayed sometimes charging God
with forgetfulncss sometimes, through
terrible season of despondency, doubting
his promises, but always returning, peni
testani sorrowful, to lift the cross a little
The supper-table was set and revealed
by the dim light a comfortable meal.
Mrs, Pean took pleasure iu preparing, as
ftr as she , was able, this evening meal,
over which they could linger together, and
Julia always brought home a good appe
tite. She was a smart, energetic child,
aod had got her present occupation! by
her own efforts, and her mother,', while
fearful of temptations by which her
young lite was surrounded, yet strove to
prepare her to meet them. . She bad early
taught her to be honest and truthful,
lessons she icoclcated by prayer and the
teachings of God's holy word. ...u---
Julia did not ', wait long, niter sitting
down to table, before .he laid the - matter
of the money before her mother with a
frauk confession that she knew to whom
it belonged, j ' , . -. --.f ; a;. ...
. He will ceve miss it," she concluded
with a sigh, .''for be is as rich an a Jew
aaljtistes miserly. Why, mother, he
would try to cheapen the price ol marble."
""Well, Jalia," said Mrs. Pean, gently.
Perhaps Tfe had better keep the mon-

ly : "always, my dear ehild, draw a broad
line of distinction between "mine and
thiue," and never overstep it. Your

what is your neighbor's where there ia no

"But Mr. Converse is to wealthy, I think
it ought to "
"Converse! Pid youssy Converse?"
Mrs. Pean turned white luce death, and
her vcise was low and strange.
"That ia his name," said Julia, won
dering at the change in her mother, "and
he lives in a great marb'e palace, or some
thing like one"."
"Julia," asked her mother, "is fcs tall
and shsrp-teatured, and d-tcs ho talk like
a foreigneer, and with a s'jrsnge accent?"
"He has been io France, mother, for I
once heard him tell a gentleman so, and hi
said he made all his mosey there,
Mrs. Pean said no more to Julia then,
but she continued strangely ".ita'.ed, and
when the took down the oil iiiblo anJ se
lected the portion, "Ulead the J-u'd, ob.
my s'nl, and forget not all hLs bea-3:g,'
her voice was tremulous w'.tti tears.
The next morning after Julia hud goae
to her stand and Johnny to school, Mrs.
Pean dressed herself as well as her limit
ed wardrobe would permit, and went out.
She took her way Etraight to the marble
palace, as Jalia called it, in which Jule-j
Converse, Esq., resided.
He was sitting in his business chamber,
with a flowing purple dressing gown around
l-u poctlylunb, wlaen the survant usher
ed in the widow in faded black. He look
ed at ber as if surprised at her presump
tion, and in that moment he knew her
through all the mint of years, the change,
which toil, aud hardship, and sickness had
made he knew her.
And they were folded in each other's
arms, the eldest and youngest of a broken
family, the long parted brother and sis
ter !
It was a 6trange meeting a strange
story all afound, and yet riot one oft repeat
ed. Mrs. Pean was married in extreme
yo uth to a poor artist, thereby voluntarily
separating from her family, who complete
ly disowned her at the time, and the sep
aration had proved a long one. She . had
followed her hasbaud to America, and
closed his eyes among strangers, lived in
privacy aiid poverty, and to her letters
home received not a word, for her parents
had long since died and her brother, a
merchant in foreign ports, had failed to ev
er receive them, or hear aught of her
Chance no Providence, had decreed
him to America; most assuredly IW
. , . ...
dence had permitted the meeting ot the
two solo representatives of an old and re
spectable family. . .
If Mrs. Peah had erred ia her youth,
she had expiated her offence in bitter re
n orse and had brought up her children
beyond reproach. .
"Ilow strange," her brother remarked
'' that T should have taken a fancy to that
child, and she should prove to be my own
niece. I often bought apples just to hear
her speak ." ' '
Jnlia had done tii!n injustice when she
called him a miser, for no miser would
have done what he did-made that twenty
dollar hill a thousand. ' So that, ere a
week passed, she was at a good school, as
well-dressed as any girl in it, with a great
am'uition at .hebeart to make herself wor
thy of it all Hd ber mother in a comfort
able home, wber9 she should not again
know watTt, where kisd relatives minister
ed to her m .sickness.. -..It was all very
strange, but J alia - never again doubted
her mother, ot, failed in . believing that
doing right brings it own reward, even
.in this wor:, and that : honesty " is most

I'he.Rlchlnoni Whig thinks that

loss of cur own three first-boin has led us
to think much on this topic, and three al
most always healthy living ones, are evi

will be partly wore off by the eoat on the
atom:'b, and partly ditsovled by the jr
tric juice ; lut nftrr a time, the remaining
portion of the lumps will be torced down
into the inttine?, and go through tib
length of fifteen to iTccty feet, producicg
at lsas griping and irritation all the way,
if Dot diarrt.eea or dysentary. Bat first
scrape or mash the apple to a fine pulp,
snd it may be eaten with impunity, as i
with benefit, if ripe or nearly so.
Feed a child on boiled potatoes cue np,
or on potatoes coarsely mashed and IrisJ
ia fat, and you will be pretty sure to ua 1
more or less lumps of potatoes remaining
undigested, ilow can it be otherwise than
that these lumps must hive produced irri
tation in the iutestines? bat mash these
same potatoes finely before feeding them,
and then the fine material will be digest
ed and afford nntriment instead of giving
uneasiness and pain "uuder the apron."
The same told trsa of most meals.
Cut up fine as fiae shot almost they
will be digested, and produce nourishment,
while if fed in coarse pieces, they will lie
on the stomach, like a meat poultice on
the outside, the cause of uneasiness if not
of inflatuation. Feed raisins and nrits to
children, and unless very strong and vig
orous, the chances are that they will in
duce immediate sickness or a weakened
system, liable to be affected by the first
change of heat or cold.
Chop these same raisin or nuts finely'
reducing them almost to a powder, and
they may be eaten in moderate quantities
with impunity.
These remarks apply to ali kinds of food,
and in a measure to grown up people as
wea as ciniarcn.
Many pcrsous are over nice or aaxiou
as to what their children eat, and often
reduce them to skeletons, and unfit them
for a vigorous resistance of colds or mala
rial diseases, by feeding them on toast or
rice, weak gruel, A.c.
Give them ratter agiai tupply of food
finely reduced, so that it may be quickly
digested in the stomach, and they will grow
vi-crous snd he able to withstand the
changes of climate, and the exposure to
which they are ever liable.
