The line to Heaven by Christ was made;
With Reavenlyiruth the rails are laid,
From earth to Heaven-the line extends
To life•eternal, whtre ifends.

The: Bible' then -is Engineer—
It points the way to Mayen so clear, -
Through tunnels dark and dreary here,

God's love, the fare—his truth, the steam,
Which drives the• engine and the train.
All yoti who would to Glory, ride
Must come to Christ, in him abide.
In first, and second, and third class, -
Repentance, Faith and. Holiness,
You must the way to Glyry ;pin,
Or you with Christ can never reign.
Come then, poor sinner; now's the time,
At any placeltlong the line;
If ;‘, on repent and turn from sin,
The train will stop and let you in.

"I wouldn't give much for his chance,
lof heaven," was the remark of a man
whose well worn garments contrasted
strongly with the dark, rich broadcloth
of the. person to whom he referred. 1u
the tones of the 'individual who uttered
this sentence, was clearly apparent sails.

bor'sl doubtful eba- Be of final salvation
. 1
It was on the Sabbath, and both had just
, passed lorth from the sacred edifice, to
I which each had that morning gone up for
I the avowed end of %Nei-ship.
"Why do you say that?" asked a
friend to whom the remark was addressed.
. " You know the scriptures," was the
confident answer. "How hardly shall
they who have richesauter the kingdom
of heaven."
" You believe, then, that the mere feet
of possessing riches will keep a man out
of lines-nit? 'I., . . . .. ~. ....
" N i. o ; I wouldn't just like to say that.
But, riche) harden the heart, and make
men unfit for heaven."
" I doubt if riches harden the heart
more than poverty," was replied.
How can you say so? " was warmly
, objected. " Is'ut the promise everywhere
!. to,the poor ? To whom was the Gospel
sent 1"
"'The rich and the poor spoken of in
the nosid.of God," said the friend, "do
l uot, it is plain, mean simply thoSe in the
world who possess uatural riches, or who
are iu natural poverty. Remember ; that
the Bible is a revelation of spiritual truth
1 for man's eternal salvation ; and that its
!teachings must - have primary regard to
what is spiritual, and refer to man's eter
nal state rather than to his mere•woridly
condition: Remember tat the Lord
while on 'earth, said : 'Blessed are the
poor in spirit,' (not the poor iu this
world's goods) 'fur theirs is the kingdom
of heaven.' And we may, without vio
lence to even the letter of the Word; con
clude that when He speaks of its being
hard for the rich to enter the kingdom of,
j heaven, that only the proud in spirit,-'
those who rested self-confident on the
riches of their warldy and natural wis-1
Idour, were meant. That it would lie ea-1
sier for a camel to go through the eye of
a needle than ;or such rich men to enter
heaven, is plain from our Lord's words
when be set a child iu the midst of his;
disciples, and told them that unless they!
becameps that little child they couldinotl
enter the kingdom of heaven. Not-ex:l
ternally and naturally as 'that child; forj
that was impossible; but poor in spirit ;
teachable, and. innocent as a child."
The first speaker, whose name was Max.
well, tossed his head, and slightly curled
his lip as he replied--
" I believe just what the 13ible says.
As for your meanings, I never go to
them. A plain, matter-of-fact Man,. I
understand what is written in a plain,
matter-of-fact way. The Bible says, they
who have riches, shall hardly enter the
kingdom of heaven. And [can see how
true the saving is. As for 'Clinton, of
whom I spOke just now, I repeat that - 1-
would'ut give ranch for his chance. It
is well that there is a just God in heav-,
en, and that there will come a day of ret
ribution. The Dives have - their good'
things in t i pis life; but our turn will come
afterwards. We shan't be always pier.,
Laiarus wept a beggar from the rich man's
door, and was received into Abraham's'
bosom." .
" What has made you so bitter against'
Clinton, just now ?" enquired the friend.)
" I mu - not - . bitter against him, in par-!
ticular. I speak of rich men as a class.
They are all selfish, unfeeling, and tip
preisive. Look at the good Clinton might
do, as a steward of .God's bounty, if' lil
chose. He might make our wilderness

can see that

•" Has he oppressed you ?"
" Yes "
" Alit I was not aware of dint. did:oc

" My claims are those of- common *hu
manity. lsut you shall know all and
judge for yourself. lam a poor man—"
" Well—"
" With a wife and four children, whom
I love as tenderly as Clinton, or any oth
er purse-proud oppressor of the poor can
possibly love his wile ari&childLen. They
are dependent for daily bread upon my
daily labor. With.,the sweat of my brow,
I keep hunger from my . door, and cold
from entering therein."
"An independent man," said the other.
" Yes, thank, God ! An independent
man ; as imlependent as any nabob in the
land." '
"•Do let the nabobs alone," was an
swered to this. "If you are independent.
why care for them? Why permit your
self to be fretted because others are bless
ed by Providence with a greater abund
ance of worldly goods ? There is danger
in this thing, by going beyond the nabobs,
and arraigning the wisdom of liim.who
setteth up whom he will and whose boun
ty feeds even the youn n r , ravens. So go
on with your story. - What is the crime
that - Mr. Clinton has eommitt.•d against
you and humanity'? "
"lam a - poorman, as I said." •
"I know you are i a hard-working, in
dustrious, but poor man "
" And as such, entitled to some con
sideration " . •
"Entitled to a fair return for your la
bor•in all easea."
" Of course I aiu; and to some favor in
the distribution of employment, where I
present equal capacity with those who are
less needy than myself."
• "•W hat do you 'mean by that?"
" A plain story makes a - 11 . 0ain: Well;
you are aware that Mr. Clinton is about
building a new dam fur his wills ? "
" I am."
" A nd that he asked for proposals ?"
" YeS."
" I tried to het the contract:"
You There was more surprise in
this ejaculation than the friend Lad meant
to coney.
;. Certainly ! Why not " was petu
lantly remarked.
" 01 course you had a perfect right to
do so."
"Of course I bad; and of course my
bid though tl:e lowest, was thrown out,
and the bid of Jackson, who manages to
monopolize every thing in the village;
taken. He and Clinton are leagued to
zother, and the offer for proposals was
only a sham."
That's assuming a good deal, friend
"No,iit isn't. Its the truth, and noth
ing, but the truth. lie's the Jaekall and
Clinton's the Lion."
" You speak without reflection," said
the fricud mildly.
" not blind. I see how things are
" You say your bid was lower than
!Jackson's. flow do you know this . ? I
thought his bid was not publicly known."
" I knew it ; and, io fact, knew what it
was to be before I sent in my proposals,
and, was, ,therefore, able to '' no below it.
!The truth is, I managed, between you
and I, to find out just what every man
was going to bid, ati then struck a mark
below them all, to make sure of the job.
I wanted a chance, and was determined
to have it, at all hazards."
" I hardly think- your mode of pro
cedure just fair," said the friend; •' but
waiving that could you have madeany
thing by the job. at your bidding "
"Oh, yes, I'd have made something—
more a good deal, than t can make by
day's work. The fact is, I set my heart .
on that job as a stepping stone to contrast
work ; and am bitterly disappointed at its
loSs. Much good may it do both Jackson
and Clinton. • I sheuld'ut be much sorry
to see the- new dam swept away by. the
next freshet."
" Why, Mazwell 1 This is not the
spirit of a ohristian man. Euvy, malice.

the plainest terms; and for those sins, - the
poor have quite as much to answer for as

ter thoughts than these, I fear you are
quite as far from the kirigdom of heaven
as yon have supposed Mr. Clinton to be."
".Good Clay 1" said Maxwell,. turning
off abruptly froni his friend, and taking a
path that led by a nearer course than the
oue in whioh they were walking; to his
home: •
