one of the happiest of mortals.and no bless
ing was wanted to comploto tho sum of
his happiness. lie had one of the best of
wives, and Ins children wcro lntclhgcu'
and comely, lie was a carpenter by trade
and no man could command better wages,
or bo racro Euro of work. If any man at
tempted to build a houso, Charles NcIsod
must boss tho job, and for miles around,
peoplo sought him to work for them, But
a change had come over his life. A demon
had mot him on his way, and he turned
back with the evil spirit, A new and ex
perienced carpenter bad been sent for by
those who wou'd no longer depend upon
Nelson, and bo had settled in tho village,
and dow took Nelson's placo.
Un a back street, whero the great trees
throw their green branches over tho way,
stood a small cottage, which had onco been
iho plidc of its inmates. Before it stretch'
cd a wido garden, but tall, rank grass
grew up among tho choking flowers, and
the paling of tho fenco was broken in many
places. Tho house itself had onco been
white, but it was now dingy and dark
Bright green blinds had onco adorned tho
windows, but they now had boon taken off
und sold. And tho windows themselves
bespoke poverty and neglect, for in many
places tho glass was gone, and shingles,
rags and old hats had taken its place. A
singlo look at tho houso and its accompa
niments told tho story. It was the drunk

"Within sat a woman yet in tho early
years of life, and though sbo was still
handsomo to look upon, thobloom was gono
from her cheek, and brightness had faded
from her eyes. Poor Mary Nelson ! Onco
sho had been tho happiest among tho happy,
but now nono could ho moro miserablo 1
Near her sat two children, both girls, and
both beautiful in form and feature ; but
their garbs wero all patched and worn, and
their feet wcro shoeless. The eldest was
thirteen years of ago, and tho other two
years younger. Tho mother was hearing
them rccito a grammar lesson, for sho had
resolved that her children, should not grow
up iu ignorance. They could not attend
tho common school, for thoughtless chil
dren sneered at tbtm, and inado them tho
subject of sport and ridiculo ; but ia this
respect thoy did not suffer, for their mother
was well educated, and sho devoted such
time as sho could sparo, to their instruction,
For moro than two years, Mary Nelson,
had earned all tho money that had been
used in that house. Peoplo hired Lor to
wash, Iron and sow for them, and besides
tho wouoy paid, thoy gavo her many ar
ticles of food and clothing. So sho lived
on, and tho only joys that dwelt with her
now wero teaching hor children and pray

and thus had earned money enough to find
him rum for sovcral days. As ho stumb
led into the houso, the children crouched
closo to their mother, and oven sho shrank
away, forsomotimcs hor husband was angry
when thu3 iutosicatcd.
0, how that man had changed within
two years 1 Onco there was not a finer
looking man in tho village. In framo ho
had been tall, stout, compact and perfect
ly formed, whilo his faco boro tho very
beau ideal of manly beauty. His noblo
form was now bent, his limbs shrunken,
and tremulous, and his faco all bloated
and disfigured, Ho was not tho man who
had onco bocn tho fond husband and doat-
ing father, Tho loving wife had prayed
nnd wept and implored, but all to no pur
pose; tho husband was bound to his drink
ing companions of tho bar-room, and ho
would not break tho bonds.
That ovening, Mary Nelson ato no sup-
por, lor an tuc toou sno uau in tlio iiouso
thoro was not moro than enough for her
husband and children; but when her hus
band had gono, sho went out and picked
a fow berries, and thus kept her vital en
ergy alive. That night tho poor woman
prayed long and earnestly, and her little
ones prayed with her.
On tho following morning, Charles Nel
son sought tho bar-room as soon as ho
arose, but ho was sick and faint, and the
liquor would not revive him, for it would
not remain on his stomach. Ho had drank
very deeply the night beforo, and ho felt
At length, howovcr, ho managed to keep
down a fow glasses of hot sling, hut the
close atmosphcro of tho bar-room Boomed
to stiflo him, and ho went out.
Tho poor man had just scoso enough to
know that if ho could sleep ho should fed
better, and ho had just feeling enough to
wish to keep away from homo ; so ho wan
dercd off towards a wood not far from tho
village, and sunk down by tho side of a
stone wall, snd was soon buried in a pro
found slumber, When ho awoke, the sun
was shining hot upon him, and raising
himself to a sitting posture, ho gazed about
him. IIo knew that it was afternoon, ftj
tho sun was turning towards the west. IIo
was just upon the point of rising when his
motion was arrested by tho sound of voices
near at hand, no looked through a chink
in the wall, and just upon tho other sido
hcsawhi3 two children picking berries,
whilo a little further off wcro two moro
girls, tho children of tho carpenter who had
lately moved into tho village.
" Come, Katy, " said ono of theso latter
girls to hor companion, "lot's go away from
hore, because if anybody should seo us with
those girls they'd think wo playod with
them. Come. "
"But tho berries aro thick hero," re
monstrated tho other.
"Never mind we'll come out some timo
when theso little ragged drunkard's girls
aro not here.
So the two favored ones went away
uand in hand, and Nolly and Nanoy Nel
sou sat down upon tho grass and cried.
"Won't cry, Isancy," said tbo eldest
throwing her arms around horsistcr's neck.
"llut you aro crying, Nelly."
"O, I can't help it," sobbed the striek
en ono.
"Why do thoy hlamo us I" murmured
Nancy, gazing up in her sister's faco.
" 0, wo arc not to blamo, Wo are good
and kind, and loving, and wo never hurt
anybody. O, I wish somebody would lovo
us; I should bo so happy."
"But wo aro loved, Nancy. Only think
of our noblo mother, Who could love us
as sho does."
"I know I know, Nelly; but that
aren't all. Why don't papa lovo us as ho
used to I Don't you remember when ho
used to kiss us and mako us bo happy I

how wo loved him, 1 know ho would. And
then Iboliovo God ia good, and ho surely
will help do something, for mother prays
to him ovory day."
"Yes," answorod Nancy, "I know sho
does; and Qod must bo our father somo
timo." " IIo is our father now, sissy."
"I know it ; but ho must be all wo shall

that mother told us that a cold finger was
laid upon her heart, and that sho might
loavo us ono of theso days, and and "
"sh. Don't, don't, Nanoy; you'll"
Tho words wcro choked with eob3 and
tears, and the sisters wept long together.
At length thoy aroso and went away, for
thoy taw mgrc children couiiDg.
As soon as tho Httlo ones wero out of
sight, Chatlo3 Nelson started to his feet.
His hands wero clenched, and his eyes
were fixed upon a vacant point .with an
eager gazo.
"My God 1" ho gasped, "what a villain
I am 1 Look at mo now I What a stato
I am in, and what havo I sacrificed to
bring myself to it 1 And they Ioto yet,
and pray for mol"
no said no moro, but for somo moments
he stood with his hands still clenched,
and eyes fixed. At length In3 gazo was
turned upward, and his claspod hands
wcro raised obovo his head. A moment
ho remained so, and then his hands drop
ped by his sido, and ho started for his
When ho reached hi3 homo ho found
his wife and children in tears, but ho af
fected not to notice it. He drew & shil
ling from his pocket it was his last and
handed it to hi3 wife, ho asked her if she
would send and got him somo porridge.
Tho wife was startled by tho strango tono
in which this was spoken, for it Bounded
just 03 that voico had sounded in days
gono by.
Tho porrldgo was inado nico and nour
ishing, and Charles it all. Ho went
to bed early, and early on the following
morninghe was up. He asked his wife if
sho had milk and ilour enough to mako
another bowl of porridge.
" Yes, Charles," she said. " Wo havo
not touched it."
Then, if you aro willing, I should lika
somo more.V
Tho wifo moved quickly about tho work,
and cro long tho food was prepared. Tho
husband ate it, and felt bettor. He washed
and dressed, and would havo shaved had
his hand been steady enough. Ho left his
homo and went at onco to a man, who had
just commenced to frame a house.
" Mr. Mouly," ho said, addressing tho
gentleman alluded to, "I have drauk the
last aleoholio bovemgo that ever passes
my lips. Abk mo no more questions, but
believe mo now whilo you seo mo true.
Will you givo mo work V
" Charles Nelson, are you in earnest?"
asked Manly, in surprise.
" So much so, sir, that wero death to
stand upon my right hand, and yonder
bar-room upon my left, I would go with
tho grim messenger first."
" Then thcro is my houso lying about us
in rough timber and boards. I place it
all in your hands, and shall look to you to
finish it. Whilo I can trust vou, you may
trust me. Como into my office and you
shall have the plan I have drawn."
We will not tell how'the stout man wept,
nor how his mble frie nd shed tears to ceo
him thus ; but Charles Nelson took the plan
and having studied it for a whilo, he
went out whero tho men wero at work get
ting tho timber together, and Mr. Manly
introduced him as their master. That day
ho worked but little, for ho was not strong
yet, but ho arranged tho timber, and gavo
directions for framing. At night ho asked
tho cmployor if ho dared trust him with a
"Why, you'vo carnod three," replied
"And will you pay mo threo dollars a
"If you oro as faithful as you havo
been to day, you will savo mo inonoy at
Tho poor man could not speak his thanks
in words, but his looks spoko for him, and
ftlanly understood them. IIo received his
three dollars, and on his way homo, ho
stopped and bought first a basket, then
threo loaves of brad, a pound of butter,
somo tea, sugar, and a pieco of beol-stoak,
and ho, had just ono(dollarandscveuty-fivo
cents left. With this load ho went home.
It was somo time before ho oould compose
himself to cntor tho houso, but at last ho
went in and sot the basket upon tho table.
"Como, Mary,'' ho said "I havo brought
something homo for supper. Here, Nelly,
you take the pail and run ovor to Mr.
Brown's and get a couplo of quarts of
Ho handed tho child a shilling as ho
spoke, and in a half bewildered stato, sho
took tho money and hurried away,
Tho wifo started when sho raised the
cover of tho basket, but she dared not
speak, Sho moved about like ono in a
dream, and over and anon sho would east
a furtivo glance at her husband. Ho had
not been drinking sho know it and yet
ho had inonoy to buy rum with, if ho
wanted it, What could it moan? Had
her prayers been anstrercdl 0 how fer
vently sho prayed then.
Soon Nelly returned with tho milk, nnd
Mrs. Nehoa hid the tabic out, After
supper, Charles aroso, and said to his
wifo :
"I must go to Mr. Manly's offico to
help him arrango some plans for his now
houso, but I will bo homo early."
A pang shot through tho wife's heart as
sho saw her husband turn away, but still
sho was far happier than sho had been be
foro a long while. Thcro was vomcthiog
in his manner that assured her, and gave
her hopo.
Just a3 tho clock struck nino, tho well
known footfall was heard, strong and
steady. Tho door opened, and Charles
entered. His wifo cast a quick, keen
glanco into his faco, and sho almost utter
ed a cry of joy, when sho Baw how ho was
changed for tho better. He had been to
the barber's, and to tho hatter's. Yet no
thing was said upon tho subject. Charles
wished to rctiro early, and his wifo went
with him. In tho morning, tho husband
arose first and built tho fire. Mary had
not slept until long after midnight, having
been kept awake by tho tumultuous emo
tions that had started up in her bosom,
and hence she awoke not so early as usual.
But she came out just as tho tea kctttlo
and potatoes began to boil, and breakfast
was soon ready.
After the mo al was eaten, Charles arose,
put on his hat, and then turning to his
wifo, ho asked :
"What do you do to day?"
"I must wash for Mrs. Bixby."
"Aro you willing to obey mo onco
moro t"
" 0 yea."
" Then work for mo to-day. Send Nelly
over to tell Mrs. JJixby that you aro not
well enough to wash, for you aro not.
Here is a dollar, and do with it as you
plcaso. Buy something that will kcp you
busy for yourself or children.
M r, M clson turned towards the door, and
his hand was upon tho latch. lie hositatcd,
and then turned back. Ho did not speak,
but opened his arms, and his wife sank
upon his bosom. Ho kissed her, and then
having gently placed her in a seat, he left
tho house. When ho went to his work
that morning ho felt well, and very happy,
Mr. Manly was by to cheer him, and this
he did by talking and acting as though
Charles had never been unfortunato at all.
It was Saturday evening, and Nelson
had been almost a week without rum. IIo
had earned fifteen dollars, ten of which ho
had now in his pocket.
" Mary," ho said, after tho supper tablo
had been cleared away, " hero aro ten
dollars for you, and I want you to expend
it in clothing for yourself and children
havo earned fifteen dollars during tho last
fivo days. I am to build Squire Manly's
