There was a small crowd of boys and men congregaiod upon an uptown corner the other morning, and the occasion of it was a home fallen in tbe harness—a respectable looking hoi sc, whioli was driren by a boy, who now tugged a t his head, vainly nrging him to rise. “ Jerk him up,” called a roan who stood on the sidea-alk with both hands in his pockets. “ Give him the whip!” Each one shouted out some advicc; bat no one volunteered to assist the boy, who was just far enough from his boyhood to feel like having a good cry. lin t he coaxed and pulled at the horse that now lay quite still, and, with horse sense, did not try to move on the slippery ice, but stretched his neck out in a way that brought despair to the heart of the boy, who believed that he was going to die on his hands. Just then a man came walking briskly along, and saw the prostrate lorse and the disconwlate boy. lie oatried a heavy piece of machinery n one hand, but this he laid aside as he stepped out to the horse and began to take off the harness. In a moment he had run the shafts back and left the horae free. Then he took tbe bridle rein, gave a quick, sharp chirrup, and tbe animal sprang to his feet and gave himself a great ahake. The man helped tbe boy to le-btnieM him, the two exchanged a smile oi thanks and welcome, and then the man picked up his machinery and walked cheerily off one way, as the boy drove on another. lie had slain thcNemcan Hon to begin his day, and we may well believe that when evening came he would be one ot those who can sing: “Something aecoaaplished, something llaa earned a night’a repose.” Tdpne An old colorcd woman stopped at a corner of one of the most fashionable tlioroughlares the other afternoon, just before nightfall, and looked disconsolately up and down thestreel. Then she appealed to a beautiful girl in a liaphael hat, and wilh eyes like a pictured saint, who tripped along in rich and costly attire, “ Please, miss, mount this be Anthony street, deary?” but only a look from the beautiful eyes was vouchsafed her. Theu came some fair and prosperous matrons, all laughing and chattering over their Chrisl^mas purchases. The old aunty, with her withered face, stood in the way. “ Please, honeys, will ye direct me to Anthony street ? Pse done got lost.” “ Wo never heard of such a street,” they said, aiid went laughing on. It was weary professor going home from instrumental lessor-giving, with the merest breath o | life left him, who stopped and said, fYou mean Antoine street. Aunty,” aM he turned her in t|ic riglii direclioa, and saw that she followed it. And so he had slain liis Nemean lion before lie slept. For the difficulty of moment in the path of everybody is the small, homely, unheruio'duty, nhich is so unbeautiful w« will not see it, and has so little graiideur wilh which to invest us when we have perlormed it.

If yoa have nurture to give them soitable to their tenderness, preparation for their strength, give it now; In a little while they will be too hard an strong in nature’s growth to take it. If there are lessons which the Master would have you learn of them when yon are older, then I earn the lessons now, for soon the little faces will be seen no more at the table, the patter of the little feet heard no more in your rooms.— B^eigh. V illage Clcrgyasca. ■l a w O a r C h iM rc a Krcave Va. Watch, and within the brief circuit of a year, sometimes even in the course oi a few months, you will see a change in the little faces. Take photographs of them, and ii you happen to lay them by for a few years, and then open the book, you will have a surprise. You will have something like the following; “Why, have lost these children. Surely they have gone from me. lias God taken them?” No; they are “about” you still. They are beside you now, looking at the pictures, much amused that they should be pictures of themselves. They can see no resemblance to the image they see every day in the glass. So they vanish from us, even when they live, and we see them no more. The little girl with the ringlets is a wayfarer, who is tarrying with you only for a night. She will go on again in the morning toward womanhood. And the sunny l>oy will keep her company on tbe way to his manhood. Very soon, now, you will see touches of manhood and womanhood on their faces. Kor can we forget that there are always some who far outstrip the rest—who do not glide away on feet along the earthly ways, but who have wings woven in silence on which they fly up to Heaven. We have spoken of the facial change as children grow to be men and w^omen, but there is another change which sometimes come on a young face, which betokens a growth quite out of ibis world, and a putting on of beauty and glory of another. A change this, sad at first to see, sorrowful exoecdingly to our earthly affections, yet a change gi owing more and more fair to look on, a rebuke to our sor row, a life-long memory to our love. And so we lose them. And many Job stands amid the relics of the past, looking back, and plaintivel/ or thankfully recalling the days when the children were about him. Well, but look forward; antedate the time; anticipate the inevitable severance, and work for the formation of the eeper, the immortal, union. If you ave wealth—heart property—in these cliildren’s children know it now, for tbe riches will make ithenuelvet An extraordinary story is told in a recent letter from England of a clergyman who supports his family upon a small salary and what he can earn by his vio lin, playing for strolling dramatic companies and other wandering bodies— circuses probably and mcnagenea. This is a rural clergyman, of course; and how many of them there are in this country who would gladly do the same thing, with the same result, if only they could! More than once the Easy Chair has plead their cause, and been almost willing to behold a return of tbe days when the clergyman was king of bis parish. The tslerical has been always the educated guild. The satisfaction in seeing for how long a period the highest offices in England were in ecclesiastical hands is dne to the foct that they were tbe educated hands. Something of the old social deference is paid to tiie clergyman, not because he is of a spiritual, but of a cultivated, hierarchy. In tbe village he is especial, ly the Mllolar. He is, ex officio, often a member of the school committee, tbe leader of the lycenm and the debating dab, the director of tbe libroiy. Ho is at tbe call of eveiybody for tbe most variuns purposes. It is possible to think of tbe endless prosing and commonplace to which bo mnst needs listen; the outpouring of the bores, the Mow of folly in every degree, when bis studies or his rest or his pleasure demands him •laowbere. without tbe utmost ijmpa-thy ? Tbe one man in the village who should be most largely remunerated for bard and various work is the clergr-man. But while men of other profes sions can earn immense sums for their professional aervices, the income of no clergyman ia comparable to that of men of the same ability in other professions and pursuits. Dr. Hopkins, tbe famous divine whom Mrs. Stowe makes the hero of her Minister’s Wooing, when he preached in Newport, after tbe Bevoln-tioB, waa anpported by a weekly collection which amounted to about two hundred dollars a year, and he had the use of a small parsonage. On. of the richest members of the society, and a •communicant,’ subaciibed 'ninepenoe,', or twelve and a half cent8,foi;evety Sunday in the year, which, said the patient doctor, was much less than aubscribing nothing, because it diminisbed the aub-acriptions of poorer men. The English incident of th . cleigy-men’a ddngb out hia support by playing a fiddle in the orchestra, and perhaps, upon occaaion, for the dance, re-calla the humiliating condition of the chaplain in old Engliah conntiy houses, as it appears in Macaulay and the old novels. I t was good fortune il he could many the lady’s maid or worse. But there never was a time in our history when tbe clergyman held other than a respectable position. Often enough now it is a deaperate struggle upon tbe slender pittance that he receivea to matain himself properly with those who are his natural associates. Often enough it is implied by brutal or merely dull men that he is a kind of pensioner upon the bounty of others. But no shoemaker or carpenter or ditcb-digger or lawyer or doctor or stock-broker or gold-gamblar or merchant earns his money more legitimately or by sincerer toil of brain and body. As tbe factitious part of his position disappears, and he stands upon hisYeal and not his perfunctory spiritual service in tbe world, tbe essential dignity of his calling ia enhanced, and the donation party becomes only a well-meaning insult. There are many remote villages in this conntiy where tbe stoiy of tbe fid-dhng English clergyman will be heard with amazement and a little contempt for a country that would compel any pastor to such a strait. Those quiet and comfortable little vUlages will probably thank God that they are not as other vilkges are, especially that particular English v^sga But it was not that spirit which tbe parable honora. I t was he who prayed for mercy to him a sinner who is commended to onr love and qrmpathy. If it be a shabby thing that an English village ahould compel a clergyman to fiddle for a living, la it a cause of praise that an American village ahonUpemitits deigyxaaa to Mdsip and squeeze to tub through the year, or be forced into debt, or even to deny himself and his family education and score of comfdrts, for the lack of a few hundreds of dollars more of sahtry f As the Americas communi^ regards that English sinner with lofty pity and contempt, that if the voice of truth should be crying at the same moment, Thou art the village !—[Harper’s Eaqr Chair. J a a g e Not. I t waa a gay group of young girls that I have noticed in one of our large dty churches where for the time my lot cast Most of them are the danghters of wealthy parents, and tbej have received all tbe advantages of education, sesthetic culture, and social position, which that wealth can give. I found that they were members of the church, and some of them teaching the little children in tbe infant class. My qwcial opportunities for observing them were in some social gatherings where they flitted about like butterflies, in gay colors bedight, with laugh and merry jest upon their lips, and apparently with not a tbouglit beyond the enjoyment of the present hour. I remember going home from one such place where tbe young people had been specially gleeful, and moralizing sadly over the frivolty of tbe present generation of girls. I wondered if serious thought ever found lodgement beneath tbe frizzes and ribbons that adorned their heads. I wondered if, under the bodices of silk and velvet, there beat one throb of sympathy for suffering humanity. 1 wondered if in a single heart could be found the capability of heroism or of self-sacrifice. Could it be possible that tb ^ who spent so much time, apparently, in adorning the body, could find any time for cultivating tbe graces of the spirit ? Church members, as I knew them to be, was it possible that their covenant vows had been anything but a mockery ? So sadly mused upon the evil times on which we had fallen, and upon the spirit of worldineas wbiob wiw era. in and paralyzing all ChrisUan effort, especially among the yonng. I thought of the wives and mothers such girls would make and mourned yet more over the generation which they should rear.. But the other fuv I was invited to tbe home of one of these yonng ladiea, one of tbe brightest and prettiest of the set. Among the three ol four gnesta was one brilliant woman, who spoke slightingly of rehgion and everything connected with it. Her wit and skill of repartee were wellknown, and no one aed inclined to messnre swords with her. But Cora’s cheA flushed, her eye sparkled, her breath came and went,an< at last she broke o u t: “PleaM, Mrs. B., I cannot bear to hear you speak so of the Bible and of tbe Saviour. I know that tbe BiUe is true; I know that Jesus is tho Saviour of sinners. I know that there is a reality in religion, for I feel it I” Here she stopped, abashed. Mrs. B. listened in amaaement. Then t sprang to her eyes, and she softly said; My dear, I would not take your faith from you for the world.” And she added, in a still lower town. “Sometimes I almost wish I had such a faith for myeelf.” As for the rest of us,we felt thoroughly rebuked for our indifference or cowardice, and I for one looked at this “frivolous” young girl, this “butterfly of fashion,” with a curious respect But another surprise was in store for us. Early in the evening young ladies and gentlemen came dropping in, to the number of a dozen or so; the same onea whom a few evenings before, I had seen carrying on “flirtations” together, s a l had been sure they were at a social gathering. As they came in they were shown into the back parlor, and the doors were shut. “Now,”-tbou«’ht 1, “fora good time among themselves; an evening full of gossip and chatter and fun, to be finisbeil of, perhaps, with dancing and cards. But no; they bad met to talk over a book they had been reading, and that book was not the last new novel; it was not Shakespeare even.
