The Eoad to Hsaven.
Tbe road to Heaven by Christ was made.
In heavenly truth the rails were laid ;
From Earth to Heaven the line extends,
To life eternal, where it ends.
Repentance is the station then,
Where passengers are taken in.
And where there is no re to pay,
For Jesus is himself the way.
The Bible is tLe engineer,.
It points the way the Heaven so clear :
Through tunnels dark and dreary here,
It does the way to glory steer.
God's love the fire, His truth the steam.
Which drives the engine and the train ;
All you who would to glory ride.
Must come to Chri.-t, in Him abide.
Come, then, poor sinner, now's the time,
At any Btntion on the line.
If you repent and turn from (in,
The train will stop and take you in.
The ccr is ready now to go,
Say, will you go to Heaven, or no ?
The engineer is very kind.
May none of us be left behind.
If you would like to take a ride,
The engineer will all provide.
You'll draw your rations on tho way,
And at the end the beat of pay.
We have on board a holy band.
They are all bound for Canaan's laud,
To see the taints who've gone before,
To shcut and sing for ever more.
The cars run through with great delight.
While all the crew in here unite,
Till Canaau's lr.ud appears in view,
Where all the saints arc dressed anew.
The first, the second and third class,
Itepentance faith and holiness ;
You must the way to glory gain.
If you with Christ would, ever reign.
This Heaven bound car runs night and day,
N"or will she tarry on the way,
t'ntil she lands in lleaveu above, .
Where all the saints do feast on love.

to the avenues, leaving the perverse old
millionaire to hold his own among the
growing business of the once aristocratic
thoroughfare. A bunch of black crape
still hung on the bell knob, four days
after the funeral, when a bent, wily look
ing tnan pulled it. lining admitted, lie
was shown iuto the dingy room which
Mr. Kil borne had in his life used as an
office This bent and wily looking man
was Lawyer Whittemore.
"Good morning." said the lawyer, as
Robert, a grandchild of the dead million
aire, a young man who showed plainly
euotigh the marks of rough social usage,
entered and extended his band rather
"Good morning,"' was the reply.
"Well I" echoed the lawyer.
"You got my uote ?"
"Asking me to meet you here 1 Yes ;
what do you want?"
"You drew my grandfather's will ?"
"I did, two days before he died."
"What were its contents ?"
"I have no right to tell you," and Mi.
Whittemore tried to look severe. "It is
wilh the Surrogate now, and you will
know its contents on Thursday, when it
will be officially opened. I couldn't
think of violating my official '
"Not unless you are paid for it,'' in
terrupted the young man. 'I understand
that perfectly well, and will be plain and
brief with you As you are aware, my
self and my cousin Myra are the only
living relatives of my grandfather. We
have been brought up here in this house
together, and each hates the other as
much as possible. Now, I've no idea
bow the property ia left, and I want to
know. I am willing to pay for the
knowledge in advance of the opening of
the will, and you have it to sell,"
The lawyer assented with a cool nod
of his head.
"Then name your price," continued
'One thousand dollars."
"I haven't so much."
"A note for a mouth will do "
The document was quickly written
out, Bigned by the young man, and trans
posed to the lawyer's pocket.
"The will," then eaid Mr. Whittemore
"is a strange one as strange as the man
who made it but he would listen to no
advice, and I had nothiug to do but carry
out his wishes. He leaves all his prop
erty to Myra Kilborue."
D n Lira !" hissed Robert.
"Hold," said the lawyer, "until you
hear the conditions. He leaves all his
property to Myra, as I said before, on
condition that she shall immediately sign
an agreement to within a year, become
your wife. If she shall decliue to fulfill
this condition, the property belongs to
you. The only other point is, that in
case Myra is married to anybody before i

tLe same is if she marries you. But
that provision, (if course is of no conse
Tjuence, as she is not likely lo marry be

the Thursday on which the document
to be opened.
Here the lawyer stopped and looked
into his compnnion'a face as if expecting
an expression of displeasure. He was
disappointed, however, for Hubert seem
ed rather salifiicJ than otherwise.
"It pleases me well enough," he said,
"for I half expected to be cut off uncon
ditionally. You see, I've been rather
fast, and the old man disliked it, while
Myra's gentle ways and attention to his
wants won his regard. She is complete
ly hound up iu her lover, Harry Perton,
who is Luudreds of miles away just, now
and I don't believe the would give hiui
up for tLe fortune a dozen times over.
Even if she should consent to marry me,
I wouldn't be so badly off with the pro
perty almost under my control."
Tho lawyer here arose, bade his un
scrupulous patron good day and went
out. But as he did so, had his ears been
younger he might have caught the sound
of tustling skirts fleeing up the stairway
j those s:tmc skirts euvelopiug the pretty
I form of Myra Kilbdrne, who had heard
i every word of tho interview ry listening j
i at the door.
I "So, so," she mused, when she had

self into the chair, ,-I am to buy the for
tune by selling myself. I won't do it I
would not give up Harry for fifty times
I a million Robert can take the money,
: and much good may it do hitn.V
j Yet, notwithstanding her conclusive
; decision, Myra could not relinquish with-
j "ut a i'anS fortune to which she had
always looked forward as her certain
'portion. Tier grandfather h.td alays
Feeuied to regard her with affection, and
she had not dreamed that iu his will he
could impose such
a distasteful reslric-
'If Harry was only here,' she thought
"there would not be any trouble, because
we could get married before Thursday

Passing up stairs, and selecting a name
from the lot that chanced to strike her
most favorably, she entered a well furn
ished office. A middle aged man sat
1. mo writing at a desk. -
"Is Mr. Temple in?'' asked Myra.
"Yes," said the man, looking up at his
pretty visitor, and inotiouiiig her to a
seat, "that is my name."
"I have coma for some legal advice
some advice on a matter of the greatest
importance to me, aud "
"If I am t" eid you." said the lawyer
kindly, "you must speak frankly and

Thus encouraged, Myra told hira the
whole story of the will, the manuer in
which she had obtained information, aud
her feelings in the matter.
"Of course." she concluded, "I want
to retain the fortune, but not at the price
stipulated in the will. Can you help
Mr. Temple eat for a while in deep
thought so long in fact, that Myra got
fidgety with waiting. At last his face
brightened with an idea, and he at once
imparted it to his fair client. For an
hour they were in close consultation.
That day and the next passed, and
Thursday came. Tbe will was to be
read iu tiio Surrogate's office j at twelve
o'clock, a carriage drove up to the Kil
borue residence. In it were Mr. Temple
and two of his intimate friends. The
former alighted and entered the house.
In a moment he reappeared with Myra.
She acted a little nervous, but seemed
reassured by the presence of the lawyer,
who helped her into the carriage, and all
were driven away. They proceeded to
the residence of a clergyman, where they
were evidently expected, as they were
'shown promptly iuto the parlor. I he
reverend gentleman entered, and the law
yer stepped forward with Myra.
"We are the couple sir."
The marriage ceremony of the Epis
copal church was performed, a certificate
was made out, the two friends signed it
as witnesses, and the quartette were soon
again seated in the carriage.
"Drive to the Court House," said Mr.
Temple to the driver.
Tho Surrogate, the clerk, Robert Kil
borne, Lawyer Whittemore, and a few
others were ia the surrogate's office when
the "wedding party" entered. It was
j'ust twelve o'clock. The will was read
and Robert turned rather superciliously
to Myra for her decision.
"Will you sign the agreement to mar
ry me 7 lie asuea.
'No," she replied.
Then you resign the property to me V
and a gleam ot triumph shot from Ins j
rna laws. J
APJRIL 23, 1S73.
"Tbat will provides,'' said Mr. Temple,
"that irhe shall take the fortune if mar
ried at the time of its opening. She is
married to me, and here is the certificate.
The ceremony was performed an honr
is . ago.
On the same day proceedings were in
stituted by Mr. Temple on behalf of
Myra to obtain for her a divorce from
himself. ''Abandonment-' was the
ground. A few days later Harry re
turned, and before the day appointed for
his marriage to Myra bhe had obtained
her divorce fiom Mr. Temple. The lat
ter was one of the jolliest pf tho gnests.
"If it hadn't been for yon ' began

w;:a coming in on a wet track with a
ht-nvy train, and soon after leaving a
station, put on more steam to make up
for lost time. The train was running at
tho rate of about twenty five miles an
hour, t hen Dolan caught sight of a man
ou the track, about half a mile ahead.
Hu was certain that the ma i was deaf
from the way he walked, but he opened
the whistle and rang the bell. The man
paid no attention to the sounds, aud Dol
an whittled for brakes. They did not
take will, and although tho engine was
reversed, it was plain that the pedestrian
would be run down unless something was
done promptly. Dolan ran forward over
the engiue and down on the cow-catcher.
By this time the pedestrian was not more
than three hundred feet away, and was
trying to walk on one of the rails, sway
ing this way aud that, but apparently
not feeling the rumble of the train, as it
naturally would be expected he would
Dolan, leaning forward, reached a foot
beyond the cow-catcher, and, as the train
came close upon the man's heels, struck
him in the back wilh both fiats. The
victim was not pn the nil at that moment
and he caught it with his feet as he went
over, so that he was whirled around
lengthwise of the track, and was cut iu
the ecalp by some portion of the first
pair of trucks. He was floundering iu
the ditch when the train stopped, aud,
when he found out what the fuss was
about, he squared off and wanted to whip
somebody. He was so deaf that the
railroad employes had to scream in his
ears to make themselves heard, and so
mad that he would not let them examine
his wound or do anything for him. He
was recognized as a farmer living near

The Story- cf Two Lcvsrs.
The following is taken from the Con
cord, New Hampshire, J'alriot : Twen
ty six years sgo James Sanderson, a re
spectable person residing in the Scottish
Hebrides, then verging on forty years,
made a court to a girl some sixteen years
of age and was accepted ; but a rival
much younger interfered and bore off the
prize. This made Sanderson feel re
vengeful, and the girl's new lover having
been engaged, in emtiggiing, Sanderson
informed upon him, and he had to leave
the island, to which he never came back.
The people were so violent against San
derson that he, too, was forced to Ieav,
but he married before doing so, bis wife
being taken to spite his old mistress, who

As the story ends with her reappearance ;
in the Californian city a few days ago,
and quiet marriage there to the former j

Columbian widower was at once sensible
and magnanimous under his last disap

frieud of- the woman wilh whom fate had
twice denied him a nearer, dearer rela
