Mr. Hartley was broken down. He si
lently pressed the hand of the pastor, and
went on i bis way wdeping.
_How like a

the window,as he saw it through this tears.
"I'll not go to the front door," he said
to himself, "and then she will know that

He then opened the side gate, and walk

dog muttered his caution. "Why Prince,
Won't you know me?" said he, much af

The dog was at once assured and leaped for
joy in the path. "Poor fellow, said Hart
ley, for his wife's benefit; didn't know your
master. Been so long since I came home
sober, that you didn't know me, because I
wasn't staggering along, and talking like a
ro6l. That's right—be as happy as I am."
Mrs. Hartley was sitting in her room,with
a foot on the rocker of a cradle, in which
an infant was sleeping, and with an ear in
tent upon every sound in the street. "0
mother I there's a robber coming," exclaimed
her daughter Ellen who had persisted in
staying tip until her tither came home.
"Be calm, my child," replied her mother
rising up; "old Prince will frighten him
away. you rock the baby, while I see
that the doors are safe."
She went to the side door, listened and
recognized her husbands' voice. Instantly
the key was turned, and they met in tears
of gladness. And shall fie intrude upon

Early the 'Mkt morning' the Sheriff
entered the office of lawyer Edson, and.laid
upon thd table a paper headed "Sheriff's

if the pr9perty is correctly described."
The ldwyer began to run off such pimi

two large lots"--"a two story houso"—"a barn
and carriage house"—"other improvements

fruit trees"—taken as the property of John

and seemed to be in no haste to perform

Deacon never:went on a gladder errand,and
Parson Blake; hastened to tell Mr. Hartley
of the happy i results in the matters of law.
"I was just writing to Edward," said
Mra.Hartley,so happy thatshe could scarce
ly keep a secret. Edward was the eldest
child, eighteen years of age, who could not
bear his father's treatment, nor the taunts
that he was a drunkard's son. Seeing that
his father was likely to squander all the
property, he had gone from home,with her
consent, to earn something for his mother
and her children, agaiast the day of adver-l•
sity. Right Manfully had he struggled on,
often writingl to her to be brave and full of
hope, for she.had a son on earth and a
Father in Heaven to provide for the evil
"And he will come home.,now," said she
"when I tell him the good news." I was
sving that his father had gone,to
this morning before breakfast, broke every
jug and demijohn; and advised 'every . man
I who , works for him to sign the pledge.
They all did it, when he asked ;hem to do
it, for his sake, lest their example might
prove to him a fearful temptation. Ed
ward never liked Mr. Edson, bth his heart
willlchange when he learns the mercy of
"'And the mercy of God,"
pastors as he stood in the beautiful home,
and thought how nearly the fires of intern-
Penance had consumed it. It was saved to
thejfamily by the vow at the bars.
Edward's welcome a few days after was
likel the meeting of the prodigal son and
his father. except that the father was now
thelpcnitent prOdigal, and the on the re
joicing Christian: Was notthe father also
a christian ? He had begun a riew life, 'at
the, right point—that of his own heart— ,
and with a new powerthat of God,
Over the door or the mill was a new sign
"John Hartley and'son." In the mill was
a new order of things no more tipplers
loun g ing there lid rildte drunkards stagger-
ing forth at night ; no more thieving and
wasting. And the workmen who boarded
at the house of their employers, found h.
a house of prayer. Edward led in worgliip
in the morning, and his father in the even,-
ing. The fences were repaired, the shrub
berry trimmed, the walks put, in order and
the garden made to blossom as the rose."
"Edward,l have this to say to you," 'said
Mr. Hartley one evening, when•the son was
about starting to
l a social entertainment,.
"My first glass was given me at a wedding
in the house of a member of the church.,
We were at the,table, where the blessirie.
of God was implored by the minister. The
mother of the/bride urged me to take one .
glass of wine, just for her sake, as she had
made the/wine. The bride protested with
her entreating eyes and a shake of the head
but I ' drank the wine. That bride was
your mother.. I never took another glass
in her presence: But I was easily tempted
to take my second glass at a public dinder
given to the neWly elected governor. After
that day I needed no temptation; my only,
difficulty was tcf find an excuse. The ar
gument which made me a. drunkard was
learned from the lips of a mart in the pul
pit, It was dna, "It is not, a sin in itself to
drink wine." Grant the statement, yet
it made me a sinner in drinking of death.
I bless God that our pulpit now rings with
a more certain. sound.
"M, last glais was taken in the bar-rdchti
of a disreputable tavern. 'There was no
wealth, nor elegance, nor fashion, rior purl
ty around me, as at fast There was no
man of God, there to engage our respect
and reverence. A curse was uttered over,
the decanter by the, landlord. The air reeked
with the vilest utterances, Arid we bilked'

staggered forth the slave I 'd the destroyer:

"But in the tavern I saw intemperance
as a giimt ii hissireugth, repulsive to the
sight, disgusting in his habits yet a tyrant
over me. 1 Fashionable society spurned him
from its doors, where, he found his slaves
