A LESSON IN ITSELT SUBLIME.
A lesson in itself sublime,
A lesson worth enshrining.
It this : -X tana no cote of time,
Bare when the sun is shining."
These motto-words a dial bore,.
And wisdom never preaches
To human hearts a better lore.
Than this short sentence teaches.
As lile is sometimes bright and fair,
Anl sometimes dark and lonely.
Let us forget its pain and care.
And note iti Iright side only.
" There is no grave on earth's broad chart,
" But has some bird to cheer it ;
So hope sings on in every hear t,
Although we may not hear it.
A ad if to-day s heavy wing
Of sorrow u oppressing.
Perchance to morrow's sun will bring
The weary heart a blessing,
for Jife is sometimes bright and fair,
And sometimes dark and lonely,
Let ns forget its toil and care.
And note its bright hours only.
We bid the joyous moments baste,
And then for (ret their glitter;
We take the eup of life and taste,
No portion but the bitter;
But we should teach our hearts to deem
Its sweetest drops the strongest;
And pleasant hours should ever seem
To linger round us longest
As life is sometimes bright and fair,
And sometimes dark and lonely,
Let us forget its toil and care,
And note the bright hours only.
The darkest shadows of the night
Are just before the morning.
Then let us wait the coming light,
All bodeless phantoms .'corning.
And while we're pa-sing on the tide
Of Time's fast ebbing river.
Let's pluck the blossom s by it's side,
And bless the gracious giver.
As life is sometimes bright and fair,
And sometimes dark and lonely.
We should forget in pain and care,
And note its bright hours only.
LITTLE CHEHSY'S MISSION.
Little Cherry, homeless and forlorn, wan
dering through the streets of New York one
cold December day. did not seem of innch
importance to anybody. She had beed a
few pennies, and bought some hard cakes at
a cornet stall: she had stood over the a: rat in
of restaurant and warmed her chilled limbs,
wmtorting lierseli with the savory steam ri
siug from the room below. And now night
had come. The shop windows sparkled
with light; the rows of lamps on every cor
ner twinkled like stars. People hurried
nome to pleasant houses and warm suppers:
Cherry stool an I shivered untill she was tir-
1 it isa .
eu, waiKea a block or two, and paused to
hang about some brilljant show-window.
Mic could remember how happy she had
teen in her mother's time. She had borne
a warm affection toward Old Granny, as
tliey called her, because she had been so
kii.d to this dear mother iu her last illness.
r.en now tnerry s eyes hilled with tears
thinking it oyer. And then she had lived
with "Gran," who went about the streets
with a hand organ, while Cherry sang.
Bat now "Gran" was dead. She had staid
a day or two with a good-natured Irishwom
an, but her seven children were as many as
6he coul 1 feed. And on Saturday some one
as coming to fake her to Ward's Island,
'here homeless chilJren are cared for.
Cherry didn't want to go. She confus
ed it somehow with Blackwell's Island and
a prison and the thieves she knew went
there, she had never stolen so much as a
penny in all her life.- And so she had run
away that morning, and here she was, a
wamleren She glanced into the window,
thinking it all over. And something else
nie to her in a vague, childish way the
pleasant talk she had heard at Sunday
school; how God cared for every little child,
anl helped each one to be strong and good,
nu not to lie, nor steal, nor swear; and
how that each one in his turn had some
luission to perform. Was it true ? TheFe
didn't seem anything for her but to
Narve, or to perish wi.h the cold, or go to

He entered, and Cherry saw him talking

we corners of his mouth lost their smile.

sweet Home." Cherry, standing at the
window, homeless and hungry, joined it wit
her voice. Why, she couid not tell, for eh
was almost crying.
A few persons stopped to listen. Julian
walked out to the door. What a voice the
child had like a biid.
After the last note died away, he went u
to her. She looked wistfully at him out of
her large blue eyes.
"Who taught you to sing?" he asked
"Where do you live?"
'I haven't any home now. I did live
with (jrrannr, but she s dead. She went
round with an organ."
"What's your name?"

he gave such a warm, honest smile that
Cherry smiled too, albeit the tears ran over
her pale cheeks.
"Where are you going to-night?"
"I don't know." She glanced furtively
down the street.
Julian looked in the window again. Not
at music-boxes this time. He was thinking
in a sort ot crude, boyish fashion, of th
poor child, and the other little one at home,
Just the same age, may be. What if he
took her home? She could sing to Alice
and amuse her; she could save his mother
many steps, thereby giving her more time
for sewing. It would cost something to take
care of .ier, and they were poor ; but then
his eight dollars would last a while. And

When they turned into a darker by-street
Julian wanted to put his arm around her to
help keep her warm, but. he did not have
the courage. How this frosty air must blow
through her thin clothing. One more cor
ner and they were there. Through a long.
dark hall, up a flight of stairs. The light
from the open door almost blinded Cherry,
and the warmth was so nice.
"I've brought home a poor little girl,
mother, who must have been taken to the
Station-house, for she hasn't any friends.
And I want Alice to hear her sing.
Alice raised her head from the pillow.
Her hair was fair and golden, as was Cher
ry s when she pulled off the old hood. You
might almost fancy thev were sisters, save
that. Alice had a bright red spot in her
cheeks, while Cherry's were blue as Julian
Thev warmed and fed her. She thawed
into a charmin? sunniness; she sang some
wonderful ballads, and made the room ring
to the music of her voice. Alice drew
long breaths of enjoyment. She told them
her story, and of her own dear mamma,
who had first call her Cherry. Mrs. Evan's
tears fell f ilently on her work.
hen both girls had been dismissed to
bed, Julian related how he had been sav
ing his money for the music-box. "And I
thought we'd have a little biithday feast
over it, he said; but now 1 11 give it to
yon. It will help to take care of Cherry a
while. If I was only a man, mother, but
boys seem such great useless things, earning
so little, and wanting so much.
llis mother kissed him lor his birth-day.
It was all the gift sho had.
Ihey kept little Cherry. She grew
round and rosy, and deserved her nnuie.
She did errands, swept the house, and was
so usetul they wondered- how they had ever
manaeed without her. Always bright,sing
nig Iikc a bird, Mid full of tender care for
Alice. The sick child was so happy that
they hardly noticed how much weaker she
grew. And at last she lay in her mother s
arms, waiting peacefully until the angel of
God came and took her up to heaven.
Poor little Cherry! This seemed harder
than even mamma's death, so long ago.
And now that Alice was gone where
other voices would sing to her day and night,
no one needed her. O, if the world wasn't
quite so wide and dreary. So she crept about
with her sad, silent face, and asked mute
questions with her pitiful eyes.
"Mother," Julian 6aid, one night,
"have you thought about Cherry? The
noor child is breaking her heart."
'Sbe loved Alice so," the mother ri ponded.
"I know it. And I don't feel as if I
could ever part with her. I'll work for her
as I would nave for Alice. She will not
be much trouble, mother. Let us keep
"Part with her!" Mrs. Evans re-echoed.
"Why, she seems almost like Alice. I
don't know how I could have given up my
own child, if God had not sent Cherry to
take her place. Every day she has grown
more and more into my heart."
"I'm glad you feel so. Up in heaven her
mother has cur little Alice;" and Julian
made a great effort to steady his voice. .
And so even little Cherry had .her mis
sion. - Growing up into womanhood tender
ly cared for, she never forgot the cold
night in the street, when, homeless and
friendless, in the very depths of her child
ish despair, she had sung because her
heart was strangely moved, and she could
not help it. The one truth she had been
taught proved even so. God cares for us all.

What is Life ?
For the 'Raftsman's Journal."
"Life is real, life is earnest ;" life is a
stern and solemn reality. We are travelers
upon its highway ; we are cast forth by oth
er means than our own. Everything is
hurrying us onward. We can neither stop
nor turn Pact, forward we are pressed
Resistance is in vain. Therefore, the ne
cessity of making our voyage as pleasant,

XiVery man is tne architect or his own
fame and fortune. If he arrive to honor
and distinction the merit is his. If he be
dishonored and disgraced to him alone the
shame and misery belong.
Man's success is the result of his actions,
He is a free agent, acting from a certain im
pulse ot the mind, which is varied accord
mg to certain surrounding circumstances.
Luck and fortune are mere words without
meaning. What is called cood luck, is the
result of sound and correct judgment. Bad
luck is the reverse of this. There are some
who never prosper in their undertakings.
They are too impulsive, too changeable, and
they ascribe their disappointments to Prov
idence. We are all too ready and willing to
blame others for our misfortune, instead of
considering it the result of our own actions.
jian is placed in the world tor a purpose;
he has a certain duty to pertjrm.
Now, let me ask you my youthful readers,
ior wnat purpose clo you live f W hat is
your aim in life ? Consider that this world,
wijh all its greatness, its riches, its honors.
will soon be placed in the hands of the youth
of to-day; and are you preparing yourself
to fulfil any ot the duties, which may be
un posed upon you as one of the actors, in
the great drama of life ? Or, are you living
as hundreds ot others are, who merely sua
tain life through a natural instinctivencss to
live ? They have no aim ; they live for no
purpose. And what are they ? To them
selves, little; to the world, nothing. They
may be honest aud well-meaning persons.
but they lack one thing, energy. There is
many a bright talent lying dormant for want
of cultivation. They forget that practice
makes perlect. Our most talented and em
inent men can attribute their greatuess to
something which they said or did, at some
particular time, which gave them encour
agement to try again. The mind is change-
aoie. j word, a iook, or an action, may
produce a combination ot circumstances,
which may effect the future course of a
man's life. It may hurry him on to honor
and distinction, or it may hasten his ruin
and destruction. Therefore, those who can
exert an influence over others, can not be
too care! ul what they sav or do ; tor often
great results arise from minor oauses. It is
the change in the mind, which produces
the change in the person, and man s happi
ness is, more or less, effected by this change,
rot only in this world, but in the world to
mi i i rn
come, ihe minu is immortal. 1 he powers
ot thought, with which man is endowed,
hot only live for an hour, a day, or a year,
but for eternity. The thoughts which arise
within us leave imperishable momentoes
behind. Every cultivated improvement we
may mike is not only additional to our hap
piness here, but in eternit3r. The cultiva
tion of our intellect exercises our abilities
to do good, and we are all made happier in
trying to promote the happiness of others.
Uncultivated intellect has but few pleasures,
and these are low and vulgar.
Man is a singular being. e real that,
God is love." We also read that man is
formed in his image. If he were uot love
he would not have formed within us the
property of loving. The heart was made to
love. Well has the poet said :
The heart like the tendril, accustomrd to cling,
Let it grow where il will, cannot flourish alone;
But will lean to the nearest and loveliest thing
xt can twine with itselt and make closely its own.
If, then, it must and will exercise its nat
ural powers, it is evident that our a
should be so directed that
thev miv yield
us the greatest possible amount"of joy ; for (
the result of the natural exercise of the af
fection is happiness pure and thrilling.
This is always the case, when not fixed upon
unworthy objects. The mother who wasted
her affections upon her undutiful and un
worthy child, feels a pain more severe when
her love is not appreciated, than any other
which is possible for her to feel. The same
is true of any other affection.
Attachments must be formed, friendship
must be cultivated, companions must be se-
ected from the circle of our acquaintance ;
thtre is no avoiding this. Then the duty
of every one is to be wise, and seek the
companionship of those, and those only,
who are pure and good. The basis of true
and lasting affection is. real worth. He
who builds upon, or confides in aught else,
will most assuredly feel a wreck of heart
and blighted hopes. w. a. s.
A dray horse, while standing in front of a
store in Dayton, Ohio, last week, was star
tled by the fall of a hay-rake upon his rump.
ie started to run, anif; being blind, ran
headlong aeainst the side of a frame house,
crashed through the weather-boarding,
turned over a cupboard, smashed the crock-
cry, aud broke his neck.
The greatest distance from the earth
to the sun is 96,000,000 of miles, and
the least distance something over 94,-
000,000 miles. A saving of 2,000,000 could
be effected if a railroad should ever connect
the two by taking the least distance. This
would shorten the time consumed in running,
and reduce the expense very materially.

'If vou doubt whether to kiss a pretty girl,
give her the benefit of the doubt."
If I had a boy who didn't lie well enough
to suit me, I would set him to tending a re

A Martyr Bird.
The following beautiful incident is record
ed in the PittsOurg Dispatch:
The noble deeds of robin-red-breast have
been celebrated for generations in both song
and storv. and the tender vmnathv which
this bird is supposed to feel for stray babes
has gained for it the highest opinion of the
occupants of the nursery. A painful little
circumstance, which will interest our young
readers, and at the same time serve to con
firm their regard for the robin, was brought
to light after the fire at the residence of Mr.
M'Callum a week or two ago. In a tree
near by, a robin had built her nest, and
hatched her brood. The birdlings were too
young to fly, and although the flames pro
gressed, and the heat became more and more
intense, the mother bird refused to leave
her nest, and perished in her efforts to pro
tect her little ones from harm. The nest
was afterwards discovered, and the parent
bird was found, with her little brood still
under her, but all were dead. What a won
derful instinct has the Creator bestowed up
on this little creature, that would impel it
thus to sacrifice its own life, in a manner so
peculiarly painful, in its efforts to shield the
helpless little ones committed to its charge!
Surely, many men and women might learn
a lesson of wisdom from this martyr bird.
Saturday Night. -Somebody gets off
the following beautiful paragraph on the
closing night of the week. There is a vol
ume of truth and setise La it :
"Saturday night makes people human ;
sets their hearts to beating soltly, as they
used to do before the world turned them in
to war drums and jarred them to pieces with
tattoos. The ledger closes with a clash ;
the iron doored vaults come to with a bang;

A Father. Dies for His Sox. There
has been a terrible fire in Evansville, in
which some of the best merchant's houses
were burned down. The Evansville Cour
ier says, and it is nobler and braver than
"We rearret to chronicle the loss of a use
ful man, a loving aud kind husband, a brave
father for in the act of saving his son's
life the father was buried beneath the burn
ing ruins. Mr. Majrennis was employed in
the factory as a maker of safes, and had, we
believe, as an assist -nt, his son, a lad some
sixteen 3eats old. These two were working
in the upper story when tho alarm was giv
en, and. seeking to make an exit, found
their retreat cut off. The father helped his
son to reach a window, and, pushing him
from it, sank back exhausted into the rag
ing furnace beneath. The body was badlv
burned, and when the fire was somewhat
subdued, there was gathered from near
where the door had been, a heap of shriv
eled blackened remains a'l that was left of
a noble man who had died while striving to
save a life that was dearer than his own."
