So questioned one of old, as we
Do often anxious ask ;
And from our work we look around,
Forgetting our own task.
We see the busy multitudes.
That throng the world's highway ;
We see tbe multitudea that meet
To worsLip and to pray.
Shall few, or shall all men be saved ?
We question, too, the Lord ;
But tbe same answer we receive,
As he who heard his word.
Strive earnestly to enter in
God's kingdom, given to all;
And while thou hear'st ihe Gospel preach td
Obey its gracious call.
Look not around, nor curious be
To learn another's fate ;
But rather strive thyself to gain
An entrance, ere too late.
When once the Master of the House
Has risen and shut the door,
In vain they seek to enter in
Who welcomed were before.
For many then shall stand without,
And Wait and knock in vain ;

Might easy entrance gain.

My Visit to the City.
BY PAUL FLUME.
My mother had a brother named
Abijah Lines. lie was a seafaring man,
and bad for yeAfi commanded a ship out
of the port of Iioston, where he was
very popular in the commercial com
muuity. lie was unmarried, and I was
named after bitn. Several times in my
life I remember to have seen him when
he paid my mother short visit, aud
brought pretty presents frota abroad
lie appeared to take a great interest in
and always left me a small sum of
money at his departure, and hinted that
he would do better by me iu case I turn
ed out a good boy and smart
I was sixteen year old, but I was
often taken to be much older, as I was
large for my age, when my mother re
ceived a letter from Uncle Bigli as we
called him telling her that he would ar
rive in Bostoti on or about a certain date
and expressing a with that she
turn with me and mike tier a visit, Qe
gave explicit directions where I would
find the hotel at which I was to stop,
aud said be bad written to the propri
etor, who was a friend of his, requesting
h itnto mike me comfortable and have
an eye to me until his arrival.
I havn.t been in Boston since I was a
lad, said my father; faith I wish Captain
Bigh had invited me too. It's a great
city, lie continued, addressing me, ana
there's lots to be seeu there, and you.
my son are af an age when the mind is
generally inquisitive, be careful that you
don't fall into any mischief.
I'm not afraid of that, iuterposed my
mother. Bigh has been to carefully
brought up to go astray in the few days
be will be awaiting his uncle's arrival.
Besides, you see my brother bas written
to the gentleman who keeps the hotel
where he is to stop to have a care over
him. No doubt this worthy will never
let him out of bis sight, but will take
him about and show him all that is
worth seeing. Oh! Bigh, you'll have
plenty to tell me when you return.
What are you counting your fingers
fort inquired my father looking up from
the book be was reading.
I was reconing. replied my mother, how
long my brother has been following the
sea. It's thirty five years. In this
time he must have saved good deal of
money. Shouldn't wonder if he was
rich. Our son is his namesake, and she
My father nodded bis head and his
eyes twinkled merrily as my mother and
himself exchanged places.
I wasn't such a fool that I didn't un
derstand the thoughts that were pas
sing through their minds. I was to be
the heir ot Captain Abijah Lines, was
to inherit his money and be a gentleman.
It wasn't a bad reliction.
The day of my departure came and
found me ready to start away on my trip.
My mother had stored my mind with
good advice and as a talisman had placed
in my trunk a book, entitled "The Pu
ritan's Breastplate; or, the Way to Get
Along." It was a work of four hundred
pages, small type, and I can't imagine
when and how she expected me to read
Everything went well, and I arrived
in Boston safely. At once proceeding
to the Sculpin House, I registerd my
name Abijah Lines Thompson, Nettle
town, and wa shown to my room The
clerk informed me that the proprietor
was abfent from tbe city, but that he had
opened my nncle's letter and would try
and render me contented until Captain
After I had washed off some ef the
dust from my face, I dressed myself in
my best suit aud came down stairs.
The first thing that struck my eyea
were several long sofas arranged against
the wall of the hall, oa which a dozen

or more nicely dressed gentlemen were
sitting. One of them had small broom
in bis hand, which he kept whisking
about in an artistic way As I passed
along he winked at me. Thinking he
was inclined to be sociable and I felt
louely I walked up and took a seat by
his side and began telling him my his
tory. Pretty soon I heard a bell ring,
when up jumps one of the gentlemen
nd runs to tbe office.
What's that fori" I asked.

I walked to the place indicated, where
I was handed a. note which, on opening.

No. 45 Mallobt Tsrsaci.
Mr. Bristow's compliments to Mr. Thom
son, and would be glad to have him call
around Ibis evening without any ceremony,
and take a sociable cup of tea.
A slight mistake had occurred in wri
ting my name, but I didn't suppose the
omission of a single letter made any dif
ference. Behold me, then, at five P. M. the
same evening, on the steps of a stately
maneion. awaiting admission.
A small bald-headed gentleman soon
came down into the parlor and warmly
shook ae by tbe hand.
I got a letter from your uncle." he
said, "and I shall be very glad to sb iw
van all the attention in m v sower, but

j you unve imvcu jum rb a hui it-aviuK
i lie cny no Duvinoaa. eo t pray you win
excuse me. My wife and daughter will
entertain you in my absence."
Mrs. Bristow and daughter soon enter
ered, and I was introduced. The mother
looked as young as the daughter. This
occasioned me some surprise, but I found
out afterwards that she was Mr Bris
tow's third wife
As the Bristow family seemed soeia
ble, I quickly got on easy terms with
them, particularly the daughter, who
was a sprightly young lady and full ot
Fallie Bristow was what nncle Bigh
would, I suppose, call a smart girl. She
played the piano, wrote verses and
taught school As the family appeared
wealthy, I couldu't understand why she
should be a school teacher, but the con
fidently told me one day that most girls
in Boston like to be independent, wheth
er their parents were rich or not, eo they
preferred making" some money them
selves. Mr. Bristow was gone Irom
home a week, and during this time I
called every day upon his wife and
dangbter. Uncle Bigh had not arrived,
but was expected momentarily. I was
having a good time iu Boston I wrote
home every night before going to bed,
giving an account of my doings. The
Bristow family came in for a large share
of my remarks.
At length Mr. Bristow returned ; in
the menu time I had become highly pleas
ed with his family. It was the first
evening of his return, and up to this mo
ment I had scarcely exchanged a dozen
words with him.
We were sitting in the parlor, and Mr
Bristow had just eutered and shook hands
with me when there came a pull at the
door-bell A card was banded in I
saw Mr Bristow change color and glance
at me with some confusion, and the next
moment a tall gentlemanly young man
entered the room and extended his hand.
Mr. Bristow whispered a few words to
his wife, who beckoned me into the ii
brary and requested me to wait there a
few moments until she or her husband
Full of amazement and wondering
what it all could mean, I awaited the so
lution. In a little while Mr Bristow
entered with his face half grave and half
"I fear, my dear sir," be said, ' there
has been some mistake. Mr. Thompson
who has just arrived, is the gentlemau I
expected and not yourself. The mistake
is one of easy explanation My Iriend
Mr Livingston wrote me that his nepb

about tbe time yon got there. Au acci

my note was banded to you by mistake
As ( had never seen Mr. Thompson or
yourself, and moreover, was then leaving
home and had no opportunity to converse
with you, tbe mistake was not apparent.

the whole proceeding. I wish you good
evening. Mr. Thompson."
Abashed and mortified, I left Mallory
Terrace in no very pleasant state of mind.
Neither Mrs Bristow or Sallie vouchsa
fed me a good bye.
Why should they f They didn't know
me. I might have been the son of a
scavmger j what evidence had they of
my respectability, and if they did have,
what difference would it make T
I was glad when Uncle Bigh arrived.
I told him the story, but he only laugh
ed and said that it was a thing that
might any time occur.
A couple of weeks later and ' I was
ready to return home with Uncle Bigh
and I was not sorry to have a prosjiect
of seeing my quiet birth-place again, for
I was becoming sick of city experiences
Tbe morning we were to start my Un
cle took me down town, intending to go
to bank aud draw some money We had
about an hour only to take the stage be
fore its starting Just as we were near
tbe bank we met the merchant in whose
employ Uncle sailed.
'Capt. Lines," he said, "one moment,
if you please," and took my Uncle by
-"HenrB?S,'a'd the ratter, "you ran
into tbe bank tbere and get the money
while I speak to Mr. Cox ion."
I took tbe check aud went into the
bank without noticing an individual who
was by my side.
The check was cashed aud I was on
the point of emerging into tbe street,
wben the man who bad eutered the bank
with me came runuiug after.
"The teller," he said, "would be glad
if you counted your money, he thinks be
bas given you too little."
I took tbe roll of notes from my pack
et and was about to count them, when
the stranger said, ' Let me assist you,"
aud before I could interpose he snatched
the money from my hands aud commen
ced counting it on his knee.
"It's all correct," he said, "but you
shouldn't carry money that way," and
he forthwith slid it dexterour'.y into an
envelope which he sealed aud Lauded to
"I was only going to take it across the
street to my Uncle," I replied.
Oh, ia that all t" he responded, "well,
there's no harm in having it safe even
for that short distance"
When I reached Uncle Pigh's side he
was still talking to Mr. Coxton. I han
ded him tlie envelope, which he opened
and tbeeyfooked at me with an inquiriug
"What does this mean V he said,
holding between his fingers a roll of
"Indeed. I don't know, sir," I replied,
and at once explained how the teller bad
sent a meesenger requesting me to count
the money, and how he had assisted me
and sealed up the amount to prevent my
Mr Coxton and my uncle exebanged
glances, while tbe latter merely ej ten
ia ted. cotiutry ass, aud then darted off to
the police office.
Somebody had five hundred dollars
ttiat didu't belong to him.
As for myself, Uucle Abijah Lines,
the following day, saw me seated in tbe
stage for my home.
He bad changed hi mind and wouldn't
make the visit.
He placed iu my hand an envelope
containing some ragged newspaper, Qive
that to youi mother, my nephew, and
tell her it represents five hundred dollars
I II pass over my reception at home
when the true state of things came to be
explained. My mother thought if I had
read the "Puritan's Breastplate " I
might have been preserved from mishap.

invitation from Uncle Bigh.

Geneva range in price from five francs

How to Live Cheaply.
A pnzzling problem, particularly in
cities, and with Americans, who area
' dyspeptic and often impecunious race, w
how to live cheaply and according to tho
laws of health. This problem bas been
discussed ever since the oldest of us can
remember, but recently with much more
interest and intelligence. The health
journals, the newspapers, and the doctors
have all shared in tbe discussion, and as
a result, if a news paragraph floating
across tbe great sea of journalism is trust
worthy information, this people is grad
ually growing wiser, healthier and hap
pier, and consequently much longer li
ved. But Mr. Dio Lewis has discovered
a diet so cliap as to astonish even John
Chinaman, who subsists on three cent!
per diem, and which he asserts ia condu
cive to tbe highest state of beatitude
and the extremcst limit of longevity.
We venture to lay before our readers
Doctor Lewis' formula for subsisting an
entire week on fifty -four and a quarter
ceuUj He began on Sunday by a break
fast of bulled corn, with a little milk ;
cost, three cents. The same for dinner,
and no supper, the entire food for the
day coating six cta Mowday- break
fast, two cents worth of oatmeal, in the
form of porridge, with one cent's worth
of milk. Food for Monday, six cents.
Tusday breakfast, two cents' worth of
beans, with half a cent's worth of vine
gar; for dinner, one quart of rich bean
porridge, worth one eent, with four slices
of coarse bread, worth two cents. Food
for Tuesday, five and a half cents. Wed
nesday breakfast, hominy made of South
ern cost, two cents worth, with ono
cent's worth of syrup. For dinner, beef
stew, the meat of which cost two cents,
a quarter of a cent's worth of sauce, and
a cent's worth of hominy. The cheap
ness of the meat for the stew is explain
ed by Mr. Lewis with tbe remark that
" from an ox weighing 800 pounds net
you can purchase certain parts weighing
about 100 pounds for three cents per
pound." Wednesday's meal cost him
eight and a quarter cents. Thursday's
breakfast, oatmeal porridge and milk,
costing two and a half cents; dinner,
cracked wheat and baked beans, two
cents' worth of each ; milk, oue cent's
worth. Food for Thursday cost seven
and a half cents. Friday's breakfast.
Southern hulled corn and milk, costing
three cents. For dinner, see Wednes
day's bill of fare. On Saturday he grew
luxurious, aud indulged in such extrava
gances that only his own language can
describe the feast to which he sat down :
