BOYS MAKE MEN.
When you see a ragged urchin
Standing tristful in the street.
With torn bat and kneeless trowsers,
Dirt j face and red bare feet,
Pass not by the child anheeding ;
Smile upon hitn. Mark me, when
lie's grown he'll nol forget it;
For, remember, boys mako men.
"When the buoyant youthful spirits
Oveiflow inboyisi- freak,
Chide your child in gentle accents ;
I)o not in your anger speak :
"You must sow in youthful bosoms
Seed a ef tender mercy ; then
Plants will grow and bear good fruitage
When the erring boys ars men.
Hare you never seen a grnndsire,
With his eyes aglow wiih joy.
Bring to mind some act of kindness
Something said to him, a boy ?
Or relate some slight or coldness,
With brow as clouded, when
lie said they were t o thoughtless
lo remember bo made men.
Let us try to add some pleasure
To the life or eviTry hoy.
For each child needs tender interest
In its sorrow and its joy.
Call your boy home by its brightness ;
They avoid a gloomy den.
And seek for comfort elsewhere;
And. remember boys make men.
T3E ETJBY MINE A PEE.SIAN TEA-
It was many years a-0, a fini belief at
the Persian court of Ispahan that a .small
Hindoo tribe, dwelling near their borders,
josos-eil a valuable tiiiite of precious ru
bies. The IVr-duu n;o;iatvIi, excited by the
accounts of its preat vrtuith, deteri-iiued to
pos.sess it. For this purpose he dispatched
an army commanded by one of his ablest
generals. It was so n discovered that these
Hindoos were possessed of a spirit to de

Many saved themselves by 2iybt ; but one
survivor was le!t upon the field, a boy of
twelve years of aire, who clung convulsively
to the dead form of the rajah, and would
not leave him.

Jouns or old, he, however, forgot his duty
as a soldier, and listening to the voice of
humanity, saved the youth with the deter

him as his own son.

In tiie full promise of 1 "is early manhood
a strong temptation to betray bis sacred trust
beset him. Unloved the daughter of Is
mail, the governor, a lovely r. wit j whom
his happiest days of youth had been spent.
His passion was reciprocated by its fair
object, who, for his sake, rejected the suit
of Narcd, a proud and haughty chief.
The governor favored his suit, in the
hope that her possession would prevail on
him to disclose the secret of the mine,
knowing that such an event, would enrich
him, and gain the la-tin- gratitudi 0f ',is
monarch. To prove his constancy, he sent
Araxa to fight the foes of Persia upon the
Caspaiu shore, from which, after a most
successful campaign, he returned a con
queror. On his return Ismail received him with
Meat pomp and ceremon, and conducted
him to the citadel of the fortress, there to
make trial of his faith. To add great force
to the request he was about to make, he
commanded his daughter, the beauteous
Zaphyra, to array herself in her most be
coming attire, and be present at the inter
view. She was the ouly witoess to this au
dience, which was to decide the fate of the
gallant youth she loved. Oue passionate
glance she cast upon her hero, looking re
splendent iu his glittering armor, the insig
nia of the rank his own good sword had
won, and then modestly veiled her eyes with
their long silken lashes, took her place be
side her father's chair, awaiting the issue
with a beating heart.
"Young warrior," began the governor,
graciously, '"by our monarch's order, I
greet your safe return, and am prepared to
offer such reward as your services demand."
"One only boon I ever asked, Ismail,"
responded Araxa, "and that gift is in your
power to bestow."
He cast an eloquent glance upon the
blushing maiden, who was uot, slow to com
prehend the meaning of his words, smiled

"What says my child?" he asked, turn

Araxa advanced joyously to her side, took
her baud and pressed his tips upon it. A
gentle pressure assured him. that the hom
age was accepted.
"Enough!" exclaimed the governor,
"then for the last time the touchstone of
affection shall be tried, lleveal tlu secret
of the mine, Araxi."
The young Hindoo released the maiden's
hand, and started from her side. "Why

'Ungenerous man," he cried; "why

their happy homes to seek for shelter in the
barren mountains; there innocent and un

The governor j-rewr angry at these words,
u lio.-o truth be cool j not dispute.
"Your treatment in your adopted country. '
young man, might have deserved language
of less reproach," he replied curtly.
"'J rue," admitted Araxa, with generous
candor, "you taught me to be a soldier, when
boyish fancy eagerly imbibed the dazzling
promise of future lame. Habit has made
a soldier's life my piide. How can I then
turn traitor to my country, and lift the sword
which I have worn in honorable warfare,
against the heart of those whose blood
comingles with my own?"
"No sacrifice like this do we demand,"
answered the governor, eagerly. "Your
friends are pastoral, nor want what we so
Dim-h desire. Yield but the mine, and "
"Hut the mine!" interrupted Araxa.

refuge in the hour of danger. It is their
barrier, th'dr defence. Surrender that ! O
never, never 1 I swear it !"
There was no mistaking the determina
tion with which thess words were spoken.
Ismail saw that Araxa was firm in his re
fusal. His baffled cupidity broke forth in
"For your pertinacious silence when you
could serve the state, and gain your mon
arch's favor," he said, "I wiil deprive you
of all hope of ever obtaining Zaphyra's

hand, as if to lead her from the apartment.
"Stay one instant, stay!" cried Araxa,
i desperately. "As this is by far the most
important moment of my life, grant me a
little pause for reflection- To part from
Zaphyra is worse than death; to betray my
country is "

it ? Because that love is founded on respect.

These noble words proclaimed her worthy
of the young chieftain's love, but they en
raged her father beyond measure ; the hope
of still obtaining possession of the mine led
him to restrain his passion, and he dismis
sed Araxa from his presence with these om
inous words :
"I grant you until to-morrow's dawn for
your final resolution ; that time expired.and
the secret not divulged, death is your pun
ishment if found in Persia!" '
On leaving the citadel, Araxa hastened
to the dwelling of his adopted father Assad.
The old vetetan was very much surprised at
the recital of what had taken place ; but he
bade Araxa be of comfort still ; admitted
that it was a base return for his services,but
thought he hud a consolation in the knowl

Araxa assured him that Zaphyra' s love
more than compensated him for every ill.
He saw with joy her expressive eye, and
heard with rapture her benignant voice. No
little word that dropped from her lips but
was indelibly marked upon his heart. Still
it was a hard alternate to betray his country
or give up the girl he loved, and that very
love inspired him with a scheme to obt.aiu
her, and honor would uot blush to own the

men, and often (unknown to any Persian)
had he already visited their abode. They
loved him, they would espouse his cause,
and help to gain Zaphyra.
"When I am gone henco," he added, in
conclusion, "tell Ismail I repent; bid him
despatch a chosen hind to the four rocks
north of the citadel, where the aged palm
tree stands by a lonely cavern there I will
meet and conduct them to the mine."
Assad, whose trust in the y juth he had
reared was unbounded, promised to obey,
and Araxa mounted his swiftest steed and
spurred swiftly away.
He passed the Persian boundary, galloped
among the hills, penetrated in the secret
way, and appeared among his countrymen
iu the vast cavern which contained the pre
cious rubies. They hailed hiin with shouts
of joy, for he was their priuce their rajah !
Yes Araxa was the son of that slaughtered
rajah, beside whose dead body he had been
found on the battle field. A cousin, an am
bitious chieflaiu named Hyder, to whom he
had delegated his authority, ruled his peo
ple in his absci.ee. Gladly would Hyder
have had him remain forever absent, for he
eueviously coveted the rank he held in trust.
Hut Araxa was too firmly seated in the
people s heart for him to attempt to thrust
him forth. Nay, more, he durst not at
Araxa quickly made known the object of
his journey to the mine. He directed the
tribe to collect such fragments as promised
a most glittering harvest, vonvey them to
the palm -tree cavern, and deposit them
deep iu the earth. There would be lead

would think the mine was found. Having
given them his instructions, he iroiuis-l

AU chanced as he hoped. Ismail, de
ceived by the glittering specimens found by
his officers in the palm-tree cavern, readily
gave his sanction for the nuptials of Araxa
and Zaphyra. The great hall of the fort
ress was decorated for the purpose, and all
tha dignitaries of the proviuce assembled to
grace the nuptials. Zaphyra, believing
that her lover had betrayed his country,
would have hesitated to ratify her vows, but
a whispered assurance from Araxa dispelled
her scruples. She trusted in his honor, and
awaited patiently the explanation.
Scarcely had the priest pronounced the
uupial benediction than a man ruslied fran
tically into the hall, exclaiming vehe
"Where, where is the governor? Sus
pend the marriage !"
Astonishment seized upon all present at
these words. Ismail was euraged at the
"What bold presumptuous slave dare thus
intrude upon our hallowed rights?" he
''Mighty Ismail," answered the intruder,
who was none other than Z iphyra's reject
ed suitor, Nasrod, "As I overlooked our
Persians working at the spot supposed to
be the mine, and vainly trjing to discover
a treasure, too soon exhausted, a Hindoo of
Araxa's tribe rode swiftly toward us, and
scoffing at our useless labors. 'Fools,' said
he, 'why search for mines in heaps of bar
ren sands ? If you would your master's
honor save, deliver this letter before
Araxa's marriage with Zaphyra.' This
said, he placed the letter iu my hands, put
spurs to his horse, and fled atro.-s the
Araxa and Zaphyra were strongly agita

truth there was iu the disclosure ; but Is

"Nasrod," he answered, "well I know
your love for Zaphyra, and jealou.-y has
brought you here in au attempt to destroy
"Read, sir, and be convinced," replied
Nasrod ; and with a triumphant smile he
placed the letter iu bis baud.
Ismail hastily opened it and read these
words pemi-d by the ambitious aud design
ing Hyder, who thus thought to destroy
his rajah, and usurp his throne :
"Ismail, Araxa has deceived you. No
mine has been discovered. It is a deep laid
scheme to rob you of your daughter, who
once espoused, will leave her father's prov
ince, to reign with Araxa over the Hindoos
of the ruby mine."
This letter was signed "A Friendly Hin
doo." Ismail could scarcely credit the evi
dence of his own senses.
"Araxa can you be guilty of such r-erfid-ity
?" he cried.
"Spare your reproach," answered the
young chieftain calmly. "Forced to choose
between base dishonor and the loss of my
beloved Zaphyra, I sought by stratagem to
obtain what your stern cruelty denied."
"Audacious!" exclaimed Ismail, furious
ly ; "do you then couless your treachery?"
"Not treachery, lather," said Saphyra,
"but patriotism and unshaken virtue."
She then addressed the assembled guests :
"Hear, all you Persians, wituesses of this

my rights, and claim Araxa for my lawful

A few words had Araxa contrived to
whisper in his wife's car before they took
her from his arms, and on these did he build
the hopes of an escape. It was a slender
foundation but it was all he had.
Wistfully then did he gaze through the
grated windows, across the moat to the blue
distant mountains which contained his na

Suddenly the (igara of a man appeared
on the opposite side of the moat, with a
bow in his hand. lie waived hi.s hand to

"What's the Matter With that Nose."
Snyder kept a beer saloon years ago over
rait der Grindstone Factory on Kensington.
Snyder was a ponderous Teutou of very ir
rascible temper 'sudden aud quick in a
quarrel ! getting mad in a minute. Nev
ertheless his saloon was a great resort for
t lie boys, partly because of the excellency
of his beer, and partly because the boys
liked to chafe "old Snyder," as they called
him ; for althouub his bark was terrific, ex
perience bad taught them that he wouldn't
One day Snyder was missing, and it was
explained by his Irau' who 'jerked' the
beer that day, "that he had goue out fish

ths boys who was particularly fond of
"roasting" old Snyder.-dropped in to get a
glass of beer, and discovered Snyder's nose,
which was a big one at any time, swollen
and blistered by the sun, until it looked like
a dead ripe tomato.
"Why, Snyder", what's the matter with
"I pen out fishing mit der boys," said
Snyder, laying his finger tenderly against
his proboscis. "Te sun it pees hot like ash

don't it?" And Snyder viewed it with a
look of comical saluess, iu the little mirror
back of the bar.
It entered at once into the mischevous
fellow in front of the bar to play a tiick on
Snyder. He went out and called half a
dozen of his comrades, with whom he ar
ranged that they should drop in at the sa
loon, one after another, and ask Snyder.
"What is the matt r with that uoje?" to
see how long he would stand it. The chap
who put up the job went in with a compan
ion and seating themselves at a table called
for beer. Snyder brought it to them, and
the new comer exclaimed as soon as he saw
"Why. Snyder, what's the matter with
your nose ?"
"I yust tell your frient, I peon out fish

"Burn your nose djurn all the hair off

It was evident Snyder, wouldn't stand
more than one more tweak at "that note"

a worthy Quaker lived in a country town.
The IViciid was rich and benevolent ; and
his means were put iu frequent requisition
for the purposes of local charity or useful
ness. The town people wanted to rebuild
their parish church, and a committee was
appointed to raise funds. It wav agreed
that the Quaker should uot be asked to sub

pies; but theu, on the other hand, so true a
friend to the towu might take it amiss if he
were not at least consulted on a matter oi
such general interest. So, oue of their
