And cften come tempests and rain.
Be fearless of storms which o'ertake you
Push forward through all like a man
Good tortnne will never forsake you,'
If you do as near tight as you can...
Remember, tbe will to do rightly,
If used, will evil confound ;
Lire daily by conscience, that ntg'-illy
Your sleep may be peaceful and sound.
In contests of right never waver
Let honesty shape every plan,
And life will of Paradise savor,
If you do as near right as you can.
Though foes' darkest so indal may speed,
And strive with their skrewdost of tact,
To injure your fame, never heed,
But justly and honestly act ;
And ask of the Ruler of heaven
Tosave your fair name as a mn,
And all that you ask will be given.
If you Co as near right as you can.
The Jovial Quaker.
Jlanr years ego, in one of tbe pleasant
villiagi-B of CLeMer county, Pa., stood a
little inn cr tavern, which ie not wholly
uukuovrn to fame. An institution of
learning was located in the same villiage,
which attracted students froia the differ
ent portions of lue Keystone State, and
from adjuiuing Sutes, and at which were
educated some boys, who, in their man
hood figured conspicuously in the Lwtory
of the country. The village inn was the
scene cf many of their mad pranks and
fulies, which were not forgottcu by them
to their dyiug day.
The 'tavern' was not a Metropolitan,
St.. Nicholas, or Continental ; but as it
was the only institution of the kind in
the village, its little bar-room was gener
ally thronged with idlers, jokers, and
those famuns with the power to tell
Oue of the moit frequent of visitors at
the inn was a j 'lly Quaker, whom we
BhitU call Joshua Miller, lie was a well
to do farmer and his large and comforta
ble dwelling and burns stood but a short
distaucc fioin the village Joshua had
two etrong predilections, which were
somewhat at variance with the doctiiues
of the society of which he claimed to be
a member. One of these weaknesses was
for Etrong drinks, and the other for prac
tical jukes. The 'Sorrel ilorse Inn,' be
ing a good place to obtain the former and
iudulge in the latter, it followed that his
idle hours were generally spent at that
One cold night in January as Joshua,
iu company with a select party of his con
vivial companions, were indulging in Lis
favorite beverage and cracking jokes in
his accustomed place of resort, a rap was
heard at the door, succeeded by tho en
trance of a man whom the little company
in the bar-room at ouce identified as a
very verdant son of the Emerald Isle. Af
ter obtaining permission from mine host
to stay over night, the Hibernian took
his seat in the little circle of the votaries
of liacchus, who by this time were quite
ripe for fun, and fully impressed with the
idea that the Irishman would make a fine
subject for diversion. After a short si
lence Joshua commenced the game, and
the following dialogue took place :
"What is thy' name ?''
"Patrick O'Urien, yer Honor."
"How long have you been in the coun-
"Siven wakes jist to a day sur."
"Is Ireland a good country 1"
"Shure, yer honor, and a finer country
ye could never clap yer eyes on."
"Why bo ? Come, expiaiu thyself "
"Cecpuse there yer kin get as much
for a sixpence as ye kin hero for a shil-
"Why, than, did thee leave it T'
"Troth, sir, I came over to Ameriky
fur the sixpences, as they are scarce in
A general laugh followed this unex
pected reply from Pat, and Joshua felt
that the tide was turning against him.
The laugh subsiding the Quaker twitch
ed about on Lie chair aud opened np
afresh on the Irishman.
" Come, tell us, friend, Low Ibee ex
pects to get the sixpences in this country.
Does thee imagine that they grow on the
"D I a bit, your honor ; fur if that
was the case ye'd " have more of them
"Well, how docs thee expect to get
anyhow t '
- "I expect to work for them ; and I'd
be plased ye'd be afther telling me were
I'd get a job of work for tbe winter."
''Well, perhaps I can tell thee ; pray
what can thee do ?"
'Innything, your honor, inuy thing 1 1
am the man that kin do innything from
digging pertatiea to graseing a wagon."
'But, Patrick, thee must know' we
don't dig potatoes here in the winter." .
"And shure I ought to ' Lave kno wed
that. If I dad a job I would show yer
how I can work."
"Wall, I want a.man to work this win
ter, and I don't know bat that I might
employ thee if thee would prove to Le in
dustrious." .... ..-..
"Plas your honor, and (hat I would ;
and whether it is to dig the turf or tend
tbe critters you will find that I'm "
' Oh, I don't waut thee to dig turf or
tend the critters ; I've better business
for thee than that ; I want a man to sit
ia the chimney corner all winter, and
eat bread and cheese, aud drink hard ci
der." . 'Shure, and is your honor iu earnest V
"Certainly, frteud Patrick I am in ear
nest. I have a jrreat many of theso arti
cles on hmJ, and if I dou't get rid of
them ia some way or other they will
spoil before spring."
"Then I'm your man. I'll go on the
wink ! Shure and it isn't Pat O'Urien
that'll refuse sich a good off:r in tho new
country, or iu the ould cither ! I'm your
"Then, Patrick, I'll employ thee. I
will give ten dollars a month for thy ser -
vices, if thee proves a good feilow ; aud
thee can come to my place iu the morn
ing as soon as thee pleases."
When this conversation had ended,
Patrick wa shown to his bed for the
night, and tho company, after indulging
in a hearty laugh aud another potation,
Joshua mcnt home, not thinking for a
moment that the fellow would ever come
to fill the engagement. Karly next morn
ing, however, he was aroused by a tre
menduous thumping at his kitchen door,
and on openiug it he discovered his hired
ru in Patrick O'Brien hat iu hand look-
ing blue from the cold, but bowing polite
ly all tue wLUe. .
"The top of the morning to yer ! And
is yer honor well this morning T And
shure I've come to begin my day's work
wid ye," said Pat, all ia a breath.
Joshua was somewhat nonplussed at
this greeting from his unexpected visitor,
bat lie soon concluded to carry on the
joke, and trust to his own ingenuity for
an cxtiication iu case of difficulty. He
accordingly took Vp.1 into the house kind
led a blazing fire on the broad hearth.
and placing him iu the chimney corner
spread before him a little table on which
wlitcn was displayed a loot ot uieatl, a
large slice of cheese and a mug of cider
The Irishman, who had not supped the
precediug night, was ravenously hungry,
and soon cleared the table of eatables.
Joshua then furnished him with a sec
ond course," upou which he made a vigor
our attack, with the most satisfactory re
sults. 15y this time the female portion of
the Quaker's household had risen, and
commenced preparations for breakfast,
which was soon made ready.
"Come, Patrick,'' said Joshua, "come
' Och ! bother, sir. I d.n't want any
breakfast. I'm doing quite well hero,
Don't want any bjcakfast ? Thee
doesu't meau to do without eating, does
thee ! Why thee won't be able to work.'
"But, sir, and it isn't hnngry work I
"Come friend," said Joshua gravely, I
can't allow this ; thee must come and eat
thy breakfast. I can't have any one
about my place to work and not cat I I
won't have thee starving ; so come now
and do as I tell thee."
Patrick opened his eyes wide, bat he
saw it was useless to object, so he took
his place at the table and managed to
awallow a moiety of breakfast. After the
repast was over Joshua told him to go to
"Friend Patrick," said he, ' I don't
want thee to work too hard ; but I want
thee to keep steadily at it, and be indus
trious, or thee won't finish the job this
The Irishmen was in a dilima. He
was sold, and sold cheaply too, for when
he bargained with the Quaker he suppos
ed Le was to eat only when he was hnn
gry, and not all the time. Still he de
termined to make the best of an unlucky
contract ; therefore he went back to his
cider and cheese. True, he could not
swallow much of either, but he continued
to do something in the way of nibbling
and sipping. The cider was old and
strong, aud it soo began to make its ef
fects visible npon him ; in short the poor
fellow became intoxicated.
Things were now coming to a caisis ;
his stomach was filled and he must stop
or burst ; with his flushed countenance
and watery eyes turned full on the Qua
ker, he asked
'Mister Miller, may I stop this business
a bit plase yer honor I"
"I can sea no reason why thee should
stop," said the placid Quaker.
Pat Leaved a sigh. It came from Lis
"Mister Miller, will ye be after letting
the likes of me go to the door for a little
fresh air I My head is almost bursting."
"Thee had better say thy stomach was
in great danger of bursting," replied
'By the saints, I must have fresh air,'
and Pat started for the door ; but before
he reaefaed it he fell sprawling on the
floor, and was soon in a state of dranken
Joshua got a vehicle ready, and plac
ing Pat in it. he conveyed hi;n back to
the tavein, where ho left him, charging
the landlord to take good care cf him un
til he had recovered from hs insbria'ioa
tie also iic a small sum of money to be
given to Pat when he should take his de
parture, declaring to his old comrades
that he would never agai.i make an offer
in jest to a wandering Irishman.
In the corse of a day or two, Patrick
was ready to take his departure Mine
host handed him the money left hiui by
the generous Quaker, and told !;im to de
part iu peace.
Tha last shot came from Pat.' To the
worthy landlord he said :
"Will yer honor please tell Jlisihcr
Miller that I am much obleeged to Lim
I've had at h house all that I could cat
and driuk and got money besides Tell
him I thank him from me eowl. and till
him that every green Irishman I mt-ctnn

commodations ! May. the blessed Virgin
! bless Lira and all his likes !'
During the following day, and for near
ly a week, Joshua's house was overrun
by Hibernians, who had been teut theic
by Patrick to woik at eating bread and
cheese at tea dollars per month. The
Quaker because annoyed at this, and to
rid himself of his vi.-itors, he placed over
his gate in large letters
