To whom I am daily debtor
For all blessings that I share ?
Could my happiness be surer
Than in resting near the Lord !

Than lie's made it by His word ?
Is there any earthly master
Who, like Jesus, could or would
Rescue me from death's disaster
IViih his own most precious blojd ?
Should I not be bis possession .
When he gave his life for me?
Hit, by my own glad sonfession.
Now and through eternity.
Yes, Lord Josus, I will lore. Thee,

From Tby service nought shall move me,

The Master Thief!
A POPULAR NOI.WhGIA. TALE.
Once upon a time there was a poor
cottager vi ho had three eons He had
uotliing to leave the in when lie died and
lio money with which to put then toauy
trade, to that lie did not know what to
make of them. At last he said lie would
give them leave to take to anything each
I ked Lest, and to go whiihersoeve they
pleased, and he would go wiili tficin a
bit of the way ; w so be did. He
went with them till he came to a place
here three roads met, and there each of
lhrm chose a road, and theii father hade
them goo. I bye and went back home. I
hvc never heard what became of the
two elder; but as for the youngest, he
went both far aud long, as yau glial! hear.
So it iell out one nigbt, as be was go
ing through a great wood, that such bad
weather overlook bim. It blew and
drizzled so that be could scarce keep bis
eyes open ; aud in a trice, before be
knew how it was, be got bewildered, and
could not 6ud either road or path But
as be went on aud on, at last be saw
glimmeiliig of li.bt, far, far off in tbe
wood. So he thought be would try and
get to the light, and after a time be did
reach it. 1 here it was in a large bouse,
and the Cre was blazing so brightly in
side that he could tell the folks bad gone
to bed ; and so be went iu and saw tbe
old dame bustling about aud minding the
"Goid evening," said tbe youth.
"Good evening,'' said the old dame.
"Uuteu 1 it's such fjul weather out of
doors to night,'' said be
"So it is." said she
"Can I get leave to have a bed and
shelter here to night asked '.he youth.
"You'll get no good by slcepiug here,"
said the old dame; "for if tbe folks come
home aud fiud you here, they'll kill both
you and me "
"What sort of folks, then, are tbey
who live here," asked the youth.
'Gli, robbers ! A nd such a bad lot of
them, too,'' said tbe old dame. ' Tbey
stole me away when I was little, aud
have kept me as their housekeeper ever
"Well, for all that, I tbiuk I'll just go
to bed," said the youth. Gome, what
may, I'll not stir out to-night in such
,'Very well," raid the old dame ; "but
if you stay it will be the worse for you "
With that tbe youth got into abed
which stood there, bit he dared not go
to sleep, and very soon after in came
the robbers ; so the old dame told them
how a strange fellow had come in whom
the had not been able to get out of the
"Did you see if he bad any money V
said the robbers.
"Such a one as he money V said the
old dame ; "the tramper ! Why, if he
bad clothes to bis back, it was as much
as he bad."
Then the robbers began to talk among
themselves what they should do with
him ; if tbey shonld kill him outright,
or what else they should do. Meantime
tbe youth got up and began to talk to
them, and to ask if they did not want a
servant, for it might be tbat he would be
glad to enter Into their service.
Oh," said they, if you have a mind
to follow tbe trade tbat we follow, you
can very well get a plee her "
NOVEMBER 13. 17!.
"It's all one to me what trade I fol
low," said tbe youth ? ' for when I left
home, father gave me leave to take to
any trade I chose "
"Well, have you a mind to steal I"
asked tbe robbers.
"I dou't care," said the youth, for h
thought it would not take lung to learn
Now, there lived man little way
off, w ho bad three oxen. One of these
he was to take to the town to sell, and
tbe robbers heard what he was 'going to
do, so they said to the youth, that if he
were good to steal tbe ox from the man
by the way without bis knowing it, and
without doiug bim auy htrm. they would
give him leave-to be their servieg man.
Well, the youth set off, and took with
him a. pretty shoe' with silver buckle
on it, which lay about the house ; and
be put tbe shoe iu the ro id along which
the man was going with bis ox ; and
wbeu he had done that, he went into the
wood aud hid himself uuder a bush. So
when the man came by be saw tbe shoe '
That's a nice shoe." said be ;" "if I ;
only had the fellow to it. i 'd Uke it home '
with me, and peibaps I'd put my old dame
for once.' For you

betweeu each time tbat she boxed his
ears. JJul then he bethought bim that
he could do nothing with the o.ld shoe
uuless he bad the fellow to it , so be
went on bis way aud left the shoe lie on
Then the youth took up the shoe and
made all tbe haste be could to get before
tbe mau by a short cut through tbe wood.
and laid it down before him in the road
again. Wbeu the, man cauio along niih
his ox, he got quite angry with himself
for being so stupid us to leave the fellow
to the shoe lying in the road instead of
taking it with him ; so be tied the ox to
the fence and said to himself, "I may as
well run back and pick up the other, and
then I'll have a pair of good shoes for
my old dame, aud so, perhaps, I'll get a
kind word from her once mine."
So he set off and buuted up aud down
for the shoe, but no shoe did he lind ;
and at length lie hud to go back with the
one be had
But, meanwhile, the youth ;
. . . i
had Ukeii the ox and gone off with it ;
aud when the in.tu came and saw that
the ox was gone, be begau to cry and
bewail, for he was afraid that his dame
would kill him outright when she came
to know that the ox was lust. But just
then it came across his miud that he
would go home and take the sec ind ox.
and drive it to to the town, and not let
the old dame kuow anything about the
matter. So be did this, and weut bome
and took the ox without the dame's know
ing it, aud set off with it to the town.
But the tobl ers knew all about it. and
to tbe youth, if he could get I
i, without tbe old man's know j
this ox too,
ing it, aud without his doing htm any
harm, be should be as good as any of
tbera. If tbat were all, said tbe youth,
be did not tbiuk it a very hard thing
This time he took with bim a rope and
hung himself np under the arm-pits to a
tree right in the mau's way. So tne man
came along with bis ox, aud wbeu be saw
such a sight hanging there, be began to
feel a little queer
"Well," taid he, ''whatever heavy
thoughts you bad who have bunged your-
,,. L l i l '
self up there, it can t be helped ; you,
mar hanir for what 1 care ! 1 can t :
breathe life into you ngain ;" and with
that he went on bis way with bis ox.
Down slipped the youth from the tree,
and ran by a footpath, and got before the
man and hung himself up right iu his
"liless me!" said the man, "were you
really so heavy at heart that you banged
yourself up there or is it only a piece
of witchcraft that I see before me ? Ay,
ye ! you may Lang for all 1 care, wheth
er yon are a ghost or whatever you are "
So he passed on with his or.
Now the youth did just as be had
done twice before ; be jumped down from
the tree, ran through tbe wood by afoot
path, aud hung himself uj. right in tbe
mau's way again. But when the man
saw this sight, for the third lime, be said
"Well, this it an ngly business. It is
likely now that tbey should have been
so heavy at heart as to bang themselves,
all these three I No ! 1 cannot think
that it is anything else than a piece of
witchcraft that I see. But uow I 11 soon
kuow for certain ; if the other two are
still hanging there, it must be really so ;
but if tbey are not, then it can be noth
ing but witchcraft that 1 see."
So be tied np bit ox aud ran back to
see if the others were still really bang
ing there. But while he went and peer
ed up into all the trees, tbe youth jump
ed down aud took bis ox and ran off with
it- When tbe man came back aud found
bis ox gone, he was in a sad plight, and.
as any one might know without being
told, he began to cry and bemoan ; but
at last he came to take it easier, and so
he thought 1
"There's no other help for it than to
go home and take the third ox without

my dame'a knowing it, and to try to
drive a good bargain wi:h it, so that I
may get a good sum of money fjr it."
So he went home and set off with the
ox, and his old dame knew never a word
about the matter. But the robbers, they
knew all about it, and they said to the
youth, tftat if be could steal this ox as
He find stolen the other two, then he
should be master over tbe whole band.
Well, tbe youth set off, and ran into the
wood : and as the man came by with bis
ox he set up a dreadful bellowing, jut
like a great ox in the wood. Wherr the
man beard that, you can't th nk how
glad he was, for it seemed to bim thai
be knew the voice of bis b'g bullock.
and lie thought that now he should find j sneaked into the passage at the back
both ef them again ; so be tied up tLe door of the Srjttiie'a house oa Sunday
third ox, aud ran off from the road to j afternoon, whith bis bng, just like any
look for them in the wood ; but mean- other beggar boy. But the Squire bim

they would try their hands at something j
which be was not man enough to do ; j
and they set off all together, every man j
Jack of them, and left him alone at home,
ow, tne nisi lning ne a,a wnen tney
were all clear of the bouse, was to drive j
the oxen out to tbe road, so that they :
might run back to tbe man from whom j
they bad stolen them; and right glad he ;
was to see th. m, as you may fancy !
Next be took all the horses which the J
robbers bad, aud loaded them with the
best things he could lay b:s hands on
gold and silver, and clothes aud other
fine thing ; and then he told the old j
dame to greet the robbers, when they I

Now there lived a Squire close by bis
father's cottage, and be had such a great
house, and such heaps of money, that
he could not tell how much he had. He
had a daughter, too, and a smart and
I she was So the Master
Thief set bis heart upon having her to

Squire and ask for his daughter for him.
"If be. asks by what trade I get my

"I- think you've lost your wits,' said
the man, "for you can't be in your right

No! he bad not lost h s wits; bis fa

"Nay. but I'll tell you, I daren't go to

said the mau.
Yes there was no help for it, said tbe
Master Thief ; he should go whether be
would or no ; aud if be did not go by
fair means, be would make him go by

so he stepp. d after him, and rubbed bim
down with a good birch cudgel, and kept
