it was time for him to go ; so he took

xtWas with the memory of thisseene
that Edward went to the store in the

All around him were boxes of rich
goods,' representing . thou Sands of dol

Oh,,thonght lie, if I had only the val

Still Edward was 'not satisfied.—
Wh all er Mr. Hubbard could . spa re it

rightfully his and must be given wok
to him. , ,
"I'll go to his house and give it to

; He determined Logo to:Ur. Hubbard',
before he went home. The sight of his

Without unnecessary, delay, therefore,
he went to the house, ascending the

.A servant came to the door. .
" Well ?", he said:
" Is Mr. Hubbard at home?"
" Yes, but he lias only just conic in,
and I don't think he can see you," was
the rather supercilious reply..

boy just commencing a business career.
Hereafter I :shall have perfect confi

Edward was gratified by his assur
ande, yetQS the door closed behind him,
and he walked out into the street, the
thought of his sick sister at home again
intruded upon him, and he thought re
gretfully how much good could have
been.done,with ten 'dollars. Not that

don't think I can possibly eat it."'
"Is there anything that you could
relish, Mary?"
"No," said she, hesitatingly,
in'g that we 'can get."
Mm. Jones sighed, a sigh which Ed
ward echoed.
It was with a heavy heart that Ed=
ward started for• the warehouse the
next morning. He had never felt the
craving for ''tveallh which now took
possession of him.
He set about his duties as usual.—
About two hours after he had arrived
at the warehouse, Mr. Hubbard entered.
He did not at first appear to notice .Ed r
ward, but fn about half an hour sufii- .
moned hini td the offite, which .‘k as
partitioned off from the remainder' of
the spacious rooms in which goods were
stored: r '
' He smiled pleasantly as Edward ell
' tered his presence. •
" Tell me frankly," 'he said, " did
you not-feel an impulse to keep the bill
which-you found last night 2"
" I hope you,Will not be offended with
me, Mr, Hubbard," said Edward, "if

" Tell me all about it," said Mr. Hub
bard, With interest. " What was it
that withheld you ? I should never have
known it."
" I knewAhat,". said Edward. . ,
"Then what withheld you from . tak=

First, I will tell you what tempted

poor, and does not relish food, but we
are , able toiget her nothing better.—
When I picked up that bill I could not
help thinking how,l might buy, with it
for her." ' •
"And yet you did not take it'?"
." No, sir, it would have been wrong,
and I could not have looked you in the

will be increased, if as I have no doubt,

Sunshine and Shadow
Another pleasant' summer evening
has cone: A beautiful sunset adorns
the western sky, and its soft golden
rays paint each object in the most love
ly manner. The rustic scenes of , the•
old farm,appear in a more inviti ig and
lovely form. 'While the rougl , ugly
features of the woods and field seem
transformed into new objects t nit up}
pear almost ready. to melt away under
the Mellow light of the refiring• Wing of
day. .• On the other side of 'these :bjectS,,
WO find them portrayed in,,-lOrig, , dark,
awkward'shadoWS. .- These pictures aii
rlc.o.a, a. though +.l2..ortiat laaa boon r,),..
tent on presenting each' copy in an ugly'
unsymmetrical form, nothing being in
a proper proportion, but each is drawn
out until defects are outrageously mag
nified, and beauties are entirely ruined.
These two pictures are analogous to
the two views in which efrery event in
the life of man is susceptible of being
taken. If we choose tolook upon the
sunny side our vision will .be welcomed
by beautiful scenes and the most charm
i lig variations. ' Even the stern, ugly
objects which we encounter in life's
work, will have their sharp angles
smoothed and softened down ; their
dark, black surfaces illmninated and
variegated by changing tints and hues,
though they are the embodiment of all
the rough unpleasant qualities that an
object can contain, yet these imperfee
lions are gilded by the lovely rays of a
mind intent on seeing the cheerful side.
I i on the other hand we confine our ob;
servationa to the shadOWy side' we shall
find each scene presented in a dull, cold,
.uninviting aspect. While every object
will appear out of its proper proportion,
with cavil defect hideously magnified,
and each beauty ruined, by the fault
finding imagination of one who is ac
customed to shut out the golden rays of
cheerfulness, and form his own, imper
feet and unjust image of the real ob
ject, from conceptions which have been
perverted, and rendered imperfect, by
long groping among the shadows..

A report ot these discoveries has been
laid before the British Association for
the advancer ient of Science, in session
at Dundee, and an interesting' disetis
sion upon the antiquity of the hunjan'
race ensued. Sir Charles Lyell took
the ground that the discoveries were
proof positive that man was co-existent
with the mammoth and other extinct
animals which' 'have 'been believed,
heretofore, to antedate the human' race.
Other members agreed with him and
in the face of these discoveries, defiant

An Authenticated Story of the Super
. natural.
A, late French paper published the
following, and vouches for its truthful
ness: . .
A young Cie man lady recently ar
rived with a pirty of friends, at one of
the most renowned hotels in Paris, and'
occupied an apartrrient on the first
floor, furnished with unusual magnifi
cence. , Here shnlay awake, long after
the hotel was, wrapped, in slumber,
eontemplatig, by the faint glimmer
of her night p, the costly ornaments
of the room, tintil Kuddenly the 101 a....
lug-doors op iosite - her bed, whioh the
had secure 'flew opeurand the cham
ber was filled with a bright light as of
day. X the midst Of this, there enter
ed a handsome young man in the . un
dress.milform - of the French navy.---.
Taking a chair from the bedside, he
placed it hi the Middle of the room sat
down, took from his pocket a pistol
with a 'remarkable red butt and. lock,
nut it to his forehead, and firing fell

ith the explosion, the room became
4 n
rk and still, but a low soft voice ut
ti r t ed in ti s i e e h s s e il) w r ' e p , rd b s b — t ' i ` n S u ay fa a r word more forhls
s ul." The young lady had fallen back,
ful state, a kind of cataleptic trance,
and thus remained fully conscious of
all that she imagined to have occurred,
but unable to move tongueor hand, uu
til 7 o'clock on the following morning,
at which hour her maid, in obedience
to orders, knocked at the door. _
Finding no reply was given, - the
maid, Went away, and returning at 8. in
company with .another domestic, re
peated her summons. Still no 1 an-c
sorer, and again after a little consulta-1
tion, the poor young lady was dellyer
ed over for another hour to-her- agoniz
ed thoughts. At nine the doors - were
forced, and 'id the same moment, :the
power of speech and movement return
ed. She shrieked out to the attendants
that a man had shot iiiinself there a few
hours before, and still lay upon 'the
floor. Observing nothing unusual, they
concluded it was the excitement conse
quent upon some terrible dream. She
was, therefore placed in another apart
ment, and w'tli great difficulty persua
ded that thecello she had so minutely
described ha' 'no foundation in reality.
Half an hour later the betel' proprietor
desired an interview with gentleman
of the party, and declaredthat the
scene so strangely enacted had actually
occurred three-nights before. A young
French, officer had ordered the best
room in the hotel, and there terminated
his life,—using for the purpose a postol
answering the description mentioned.
The body and the pistol still lay at the
dead-house for identification, and the
gentleman proceeding, thither, saw
both ; the head of the unfortunate man
exhibiting the wound in the forehead,
1 as in the vision.
Fanny Fern is' eloquent on the sub
ject of fariners' wives. She says :
Next to being a minister's 'wife, I
should dread being the wife of a farmer ) ,
Sometimes, indeed „the tegnis are synon
ymous. Itaisi ng children and chicken,
ucl infiniluin, making butter, cheese,
bread, and the. omnipresent pie ; :cutting
making,, and mending the clothes for a

of the pigs and the vegetable garden;
Making cider apple sauce by the barrel,
and pickling _myriads of cucumbers ;
drying fruits and herbs; putting all the
twins through the measles, whooping
cough, mumps, scarlet fever and chick
en pox ; besides. keeping a perpetual
river of hot grease on the kitchen table,
in whieh, 3.S to float potatoes, carrots,
onions and turnips for the rtyvenous
maws of the "farm hands." .
Now your farmer is a round, stalwart,
animal. There is no baby waiting at
his pantaloons • while he ploughs or
makes fences. He lies down under the
nearest tree and rests, or sleeps, 'when
he can no longer work with profit. He
conies unto his dinner with the appe
tite of a hyelia and the digestion of 'a
rhinoceros, and goes forth again to the
hay : field till called home to supper.—
There is his wife, and too often with
the same frowsy,head with which she
rose in the morning, darting hither and
thither for whatever is wanted, or help
ing the hungry children or the farm
hands. After' the supper is finished
conies the dish-washing and milking,
and the thought for to-morrow's bre k-

sleeps with one eye open for a bab or
a sick child, and rises again to pursue
the same unrelieved treadmill,wearing,
