How gently wise, who never move
When st&n nlisforttine linvets;
Who see the same kind baud of love
In sunshine and in showers.
When shadows veil the burning sky,
Behind the clouds they know
Bright fields of golden grandeur lie,
And seas of splendor flow.
They only bend, but never brook
When angry storms arise—
Prepared the hand of grief to take,
And wait for brighter skies.
holly Acton wtis an excellent young lady of some
eighteen years. Her parents although in humble
'circumstances, Were industrious, and the daughter
was early taught 4, employ herself about that
\`.•hick was useful. She took pride in rising early
and getting breakfait ready by the time her mother
arose; after Which slie 'weiuld employ herself in the
kitchen, or sew or 'knit. Unlike a great many of
her sex, she 'waif seldom seen at the window, to
watch the young men who passed, dressed ha the
height of fashion. It was not because Emily war
poor, but she haL a different taste, and thought more
of her character and the assistance she might ren
der her mother. Her dress was always neat, but
never gaudy; and it did not trouble her if she could
nut follow the foolish fashions of the day. Emily
Wks. also interesting in her conversation. You
.would not hear her talk about the fellows and tlit
beaux, froth one month to another; nor remark
what this person and that one wore ut church.—,
She attended meeting to hear, .d not 'to see and
be Seen, and what site heard was treasured in het
mind. Miss Acton was called a little odd by some
of her flirty young friends, who were all for fashion
and show ; —but they Loved her nevertheless.—,
Emily had an excellent disposition ; she was kind
and accommodating, and never indulged in angry
words or manifested unpleasant feelings.
Mr. Acton was a worthy shoemaker; hut as his
business was not very good and he not an expert
*Orkman, it was with difficulty that ho paid his
debts and lived comfortably. To purchase the ne
cessaries of life requires no little sum, orpecially
when rents are high and wood and hour ere dear.—
To help along the faintly, Emily was in the habit of
taking in work, and often from twelve to fifteen
shillings n week. This she gave to her mother to
expend in any Way she might think proper.
One morning as Emily was returning some work
ttat she had made, she picked up a small gold ring.
On exattlining'it as she returned home, she discov
ered the initials , J. S.' engraved on the inside.—
: Mother,' said 'thr, 'thin may belong to some one
who prizes it highly ; otherwise I think the owner
Weald het hove had his initials engraved upon it."
If so you may find the owner; for it will cer
tainly be advertised.
, .
Do you think one would go to that expense for
Fb trilling a thing?'
'Not unless it is vaned more as a gift than for
the gold it contains.'
Emily carefully d
. put aWat; the ring in her box an
thought bin little of it for a few days. On Tues
day morning when the Gazette came—for Mr. Ac
ton was a subscnher 16 this paper—on looking o'
the advertising colunins, Emily exclaimed,
Why, mother, the ring 1 found last week is re
ally advertised.'
'Are you sure of it 1'
es, it describes the very ring.'
Min and gel it, and thL road to lac the adver•
Emily brought the ring and handed it to her mo
ther, and read as follows;
Lus•r.-A Hindi gold ring, with the initials
S.' upon it. The ring is prised as the gift of,
friend, and Whoever lies fdund the same shall be
liberally rewarded by leaving it at the store of Mr.
in Middle Birtel..!
'lt must be the same, Emily, end you had better
cart? , the ring to the store this morning.'
•t will, niother ; but I shall charge nothing for
finding it.'
Putting on her things, Emily started for theshop
in Middle &rect. bit entering she made knoWn
her errand, and the store keeper remarked that the
gentleman who lost the ring had lefi. two &Mars for
him to pay, should any one present it. But Emily
refused to take tiih Motley, and left the ring. The
shop keeper insisted on her taking the iWti dollars.
The gentleman is rich and is able to poy it,'
said lie:
Finding that she refused and was leaving the
shop, he called her hack and requested het name
and residence, which sho did not hesitate to give,
tifid then left the shop and rettirned to her home.
The following Monday, when Emily and her
mother were dt their wash-tubs, some ono knocked
et the door. The old lady went to see who was
there, and Presently returned, telling her daughter a
young gentleman was in the front mom who wish
ed to see her. Wiping her face and hands on her
apron, she hastened into the room, without unroll
ing lice sleeves or unpinning her gown. Yet she
did not apologize for her appearance, taking it for
granted that if a real gentleman wished to see her
he would know that to work was no disgrace, and
that on Monday morning else must of course be
found at the wash-tub.
As she entered the room the gentleman remarked,

The ring I value at ten limas that sum. It was
