Mr. Herbert De Browne sat in his lux
urious bachelor establishment in Blank
street, and pondered deeply. The sub
ject of his cogitations was a wife, or rather
how to gat one. There were enough
young ladies who would be glad to bless
their lucky stars for the privilege of be
coming mistress of his home, as he well
knew; but he also - felt tolerably well as

Had this adversity been real, he would
not have felt like laughing.
Then came the time when this circle of
acquaintances got narrowed down to three.
But three of his former friends still clung
to him, true in adversity.
It was no wonder he grew misanthrop

containing some of his former acquain

Brandard was a wealthy man—very weal

was nothing to warrant the suspicion that
he had learned Herbert's secret, and wish
ed to curry favor, sidle him while under
fly dismissed. Of course he quickly th9nk
ed him, and accepted.
Once cosily snuggled in the Brandard
mansion, it was not long before he won-

She did not seem to be above him, not
withstanding:the wide difference in their
positions, and treated him as cordially—
more cordially, he thought—than before
the change in his fortunes.
He would not have been human had
he not learned to love her.
The climax came when she gave a grand
party. Then, before the elite of the city,
she did not hesitate to receive attentions
from him, on which but one construction
could be placed. He thought her quite
a heroine, and asked for no further proof
that she could love him.
Tne next afternoon, they met in her
father's library, where he had waited to
to see her.
"Susie," he said, as soon as the usual
courtesies had been exchanged, "I come
to you this morning to learn my fate. I
know the difference in our positions, and
would not urge you—only let ' your heart
decide. My heart I lay before you."
She blushed prettily, and seemed confus
ed for a moment ; then she gave him her

said`; "and I feared that you would nev

you lost your wealth that all women were

"You sent him to negotiate with me,"
cried Herbert, finishing the sentence in
tuitively, and giving it labial emphasis.
"I loved you so 1" she murmered de
"I do not doubt it, dearest !"
And Mr. Herbert de Browne believed
himself the happiest of men.
They were married. The wedding
was yery unpretentious, as became the
bridegroom's straitened circumstances ;
and he in a constant ecstacy as he thought
of her surprise when he should tell her
that his fortune still remained- He sent
for Mrs. Rinkle to come and reopen the
house, and to put it in condition to re
ceive its mistress. Meantime, they tarri
ed at her father's.
"Herbert," said his wife ' one day, "I
have a favor to ask pf you. Will you

"I will, - if in my power, Sue, darling,"

Taking Things Without Asking.
When I was a boy, I was playing out
in the street one winter's day, catching
rides on sleighs, and it was great fun.—
Boys would rather catch rides any day
than go out regularly and properly to
take a drive. As I am catching on to
one sleigh and to another, sometimes hav

nantly, as I thought, and neither said
anything to me, nor swung his old whip
over me ; so I ventured to climb upon
the side of , his nutter. Another benig

a word. Emboldened by his supposed
goodness, I - N - Foirr - ed - to - tumble - into - th
cutter and take a Seat under the warm
robe beside him, and then he spoke. The
colloquy was as follows
"Young man, do you like to ride?"
“y es r
"It's a pretty nice cutter, isn't it ?"
— "Yes, sicit is, aid a-nice-horse-draw
"Did I ask you to get in ?"
"No, sir." _

"Well, sir, II I thought you looks.

"And so, young man, because you you
thought I was good and kind, you took
advantage of that kindness, and took a fa

"Yes, sir." itl/4
now, young man, It
you two things. You should never take
a mean advantage of the kindness of oth
ers ; and what is worth having, is worth

tumble you out into that snow-drift with

as a note struck from a silvery bell, the
voice rippled over the common.
"That's mother," cried one of the boys,
and he instantly threw down his bat, and
picked up his jacket and cap.
"Don't go yet !" "Have it out Fin
ish the game !" Try it again !" cried ..the
players in a noisy chorus:
"I must go—right off—this minute. I
told her I'd come whenever she called.
"Hake her believe you didn't hear !"
them all exclaimed.
"But Idid hear."
"She wont know you did."
"But I know it, and—" •
"Let him go," said a bystander. "You
can't do • anything with him. He's tied
to his mother's apron strings."
"That's so," said Charley ; • "and it's
to what every boy ought to be tied ; and
in a bard knot, too."
"But I wouldn't be such a baby 'as to
run the minute she called," said one. s ,
".T. don't call it babyish .to keep one's
word to his mother," answered the obedi

blue eyes. "I call that manly ; and the
boy who don't keep his word to her. will
never keep it to any one else—you see if
he does I" - •
and he hurried away to his cottage home.

Running in a Rut.
Small an narrow minds always. run in
ruts.. Large and comprehensive minds
originate ideas and strike 'out original
courses. A monkey can imitate, but it
requires a man of mind—something more
than instinct—to originate. A small mind
ed man may be sharp and shrewd enough
to ,follow and pick up the mental crembis
of a large mind, and turn the same to pro
fitable account. Our longheaded John
Calvin, our broadheaded Martin Luther,
and our highheaded John Wesley, lead
their millions of followers to day. New
ton, Harvey, Fulton and Gall were large
minded men, and made original discover
ies. We; lesser' lights, profit by their
teachings, and follow in their wake. The
only objection to' this "rut fraternity is,
that they oppose measures which, if car
ried out, would result in their good. The
world changes. One season succeeds an
other. Daylight succeeds darkness. One
generation---yee, generation—succeeds an
other. And the world moves. Let us
move with it, Those who oppose will be
crushed, and left behind the ev
er forward movement. Instead of follow
ing blind and fkllible guides, let us look
to the great Teacher, and follow' Him. Is
our courses through dark and dismal ways?
Light from Heaven, through faith, will
shine on our path and make the way "all
serene" Let us get out of the ruts of i,g
norance, skepticism, Superstition, fear, d.e•
spondency, and spiritual death, and come
up into the open way whose mails are
straight and freeofimpedim: ents,andwhich
are illuminated by the brightness of truth.

THR WORLD OVER.—From all parts
of the world we continue to receive tidinv
of destruction of life and property by
flood, fire, and shipwreck. In China, the
storms and floods, of which we have pre
viously had some accounts, are reported
t cihave swept away three thousand persons.
The Bassin. mining town of Bogoslovsk,
in the Uural Mountains, has been burned
by incendiaries; and, in addition to the
great disasters in our own country- alrea
dy chronicled, ve are beginning to receive
accounts of numerous wrecks which. oc-
curred during the late gale along the Lake
and Atlantic coast. At -Halifax, ports
on the St. Lawrence, and on both sides of
the great. Lakes, the devastaiion has been
unusually heavy. These; and the other
great calamities that hive overtaken- us,
are proofs of the helplessness of man, with
all his proud achivements in science,
against the unleas.ed elements
. by which
he is surrounded.

In the early - part of My - Ministry "made

you made a great mistake.. That young
