Maria stoorj haughtily silent in the mid
dle of the room, while Ruth, mounted on a
stool to bring her nearer Miss Trevor's
height, put in pins here and there, and laid
little foi ls, and basted refractory seams.
"She is pretty," thought Maria, as the
sunlight glanced thwart Ruth's golden hair
and shewed the exquisitely fine texture of
her roc leaf skin. "No pearl powder there !
I wonder if there was any truth in the re
port that Charles fancied her ! The idea of
our brother Birring with a dressmaker ! for
of course it. was nothing but a flirtation !"
And Miss Maria unconsciously gave her
self such a jerk that two pins flew half across
the room, and Ruth arched her eyebrows.
"Dear me. Miss. Trevor, I shall never get
your dress fitted if you don't stand still !"

Trevor was anxious to import to others the
choii-e bit of gossip she had gleaned.
Mrs. Trevor was dreaming over a bit of
embroidery by the fire, and Charles Trevor,
standing in the bay window, was glancing
up and down the columns of the moruina
paper, as Maria entered. It was a magnifi
cent drawing room, with ceilings of fresro
and col ', and carpets soft and rich as the
finest m )ss, while plate-glass windows. hung
with massive satin draperies, let in a soften

at all inferior to any of the guests at Ward

grace and intellect place her far above any
young lady there."
"There, mamma, I told you just how it
was!" said Maria, turning to her mother.
"Charles has been just foolish enough to
become infatuated with her baby faco. I
wish we had never gone to Wardlcy Place."
"My dear hoy," urged Mrs. Trevor, "you

"I believe so, Charles."
Charles Trevor never spoke another word

voice, and hardly knew whether he was

I Caa't Afford It.
With all the courage of the American,
which is unquestionable, to do and to dare,
there is one thing he is unequal to, and
that is to say Jcnu't afford it, and act in
accordance with such a declaration. If by
any hazard he is forced to check his inordi
nate consumption for want of a dollar, he
will submit h patiently perhaps as others to
the constraint, but never confess the motive.
His ingenuity will supply Liui with every
possible device for dodging an acknowledge
ment of the real cause of his compulsory
economy. The confession of a want of tnon
ey wi'd never be forced from his lips. Thh
would require too great a deduction from
his self-complacent assertion of American
omnipotence. It is preposterous for one of
his mighty stride to be brought to a stop by
want of means to pay the day's reckoning.
He will never acknowledge so humiliating a
check, but will contrive plausible and more
dignified cause for stoppage.
This disinclination to say 1 can t afford it
leads inevitably to an undue strain of expen
diture upon means. No one being willing to
confess the weakness of poverty, all make a
brave show of the power of wealth. Thus
the general expense is out of all proportion
to the common prosperity.
The unwillingness to utter I emit afford

TllAXSI'LANTINli MOUNTAIN PKAKS.
Professor Gunning delivered a lecture in
Hartford, Connecticut, on the last glacial
period, during which he stated that he had
seen in Stamford, Vermont, a mountain of
granite as peculiar as that of Superior, but
of different type. The crystals were foliated.

To Young Men.
It is easier to be a good business man than
a poor one. Half the energy displayed in
keeping ahead that is required to catch up
when behind will save credit, give more
time to business, and add to the profit and
reputation of your word. Honor your en
gagements. If you promise to meet a man,
or do a certain thing at a certain moment,
t3 ready at the appointed time. If you
have work to do, do it at once, cheerfully,
and therefore more speedily and correctly.
Ifyougoouton business, attend promptly
to the matter on hand, and then as prompt
ly go about your own business. Do not
stop to tell stories in business hours.
If you have a place ot business, be found
there when wanted. No man can get rich
by sitting round stores and saloons. Nev
er "fool" on business matters. If you have
to labor for a living, remember that one
hour in the morning is better than two at
night. If you employ others, be on hand
to see that they attend to their duties,
and to direct with regularity, promptness
and liberality. Do not meddle with any
business you know nothing of. Never buy
any article simply because the man that
sells it will take it out in trade. Trade is
money. Time is money. A good busi
ness habit and reputation is always money.
Make your place of buisncss pleasant and
attractive ; then stay there to wait on cus
Never use quick words, or allow yourself

will help you. Re faithful over the inter

creased. Do not be in too great haste to
get rich. Do not build until you have ar

as you hope to work for success spend
time hi idleness. If your time issyour own,
business will sutler if yoa do. If it is giv
en to another for pay, it belongs to him, and
you have no more right to steal that than to
steal money. Be obliging. Strive to avoid
harsh words and personalities. Do not
kick every stone in the path ; more miles
can be made in a day by going steadily on
than by stopping to kick. Pay as you go.
A man of honor respects his word as he
docs his bond. Ask, but never beg. Help
others when you can, but never give when
you cannot afford to, sirepjy because it is
fashionable. Learn to say no. No neces

it firmly and respectfully. Have but few
confidents, and the fewer the better. Use
your own brains ratherthan those of others.

her inability to enjoy a promenade. It was
a foolish thought of the child ; but many a
grown up person is just as foolish in their
wishes. They would rejoice to exclude
every cloud from their social horizon. They
then would be blest if they could be insured

what a great mistake. They would die of

afflictions are actually a relief. Thoy enable
us to enjoy again that pleasure which, if
unintcrrupteu, would sicken us to satiety
and sorrow. Trouble and pain are the clouds
and the rain which give variety to our social
existence, and fructify our social nature.
