JpUstfllattHras Dtadtnjt THEgXPERIMENT. Mr. Herbert De Browne sat in his luxurious bachelor establishment in Blank street, and pondered deeply. The subject of his cogitations was a wife, or rather now to get one. There were enough young ladies who would be glad to bless their luck y stars for the privilege of becoming mistress of his home, as he well knew; out he also felt tolerably well assured the home was all they cared for.-— For the fortune they would wed its owner. ¦"Duce take the money!" he exclaimed ; "I wish I'd never had a farthing and then But botheration, then I should have been too poor to marry anyway. Why couldn't I have had just wealth enough for all my wants and nothing more ? I'll foil them, though, the mean adventuresses1" A furious pull at the bell-rope brought the house-kee-er to tha room in a hurry. "Pack up your traps, Mrs. Einkle, he exclaimed, abruptly, "for I am going to close the house." It was evident he had come to some conclusion. "Shut up the h...

Taking Things Without Asking. When I was a boy, I was playing out in the street one winter's day, catching rides on sleighs, and it was great fun.— Boys would rather catch rides any day than go out regularly and properly to take a' drive. As I am catching on to one. sleigh and to another, sometimes hav ing a nice time, and oftentimes getting a cut from a big black whip, I at last fastened like a barnacle to the side of a countryman's cutter. An old gentleman sat alone on the nantly, as I thought, and neither said anything to me, nor swung his old whip over me; so I ventured to climb upon the side of his cutter. Another benignant look from the countryman, but not a word. Emboldened by his supposed goodness, Pl ; eutured~to~tumbler-intor-the cutter and take a seat under the warm robe beside him, and then he spoke. The colloquy was as follows :¦ .

Truthful and Obedient. Charlie! Charlie!" Clear and sweet as a note struck from a silvery bell, the voice rippled over the common. "That's mother," cried one of the boys, and he instantly threw down his bat, and picked up his jacket and cap. "Don't go yet!" "Have it out!', Finish the game I" Try it again !" cried the players in a noisy chorus. "I must go—right off—this minute. I told her I'd come whenever she called. "Make her believe you didn't hear!" them all exclaimed. "But I,did hear." "She wont know you did." "But I know it, and—" v "Let him go," said a bystander. "You can't do' anything with him. He's tied to his mother's apron strings." "That's so," said Charley; "and it's to what every boy ought to be tied; and in a hard knot, too." "But I wouldn't be such a baby "as to run the minute she called," said one. <« "I don*t call it babyish to keep one's woril to his mother," answered the obedient ' boy, a beautiful light glowing in his blue eyes.

Running in a Rut. Small an narrow minds always, run in ruts. . Large and comprehensive ininds originate ideas and strike out original courses. A monkey can imitate, but it requires a man of mind—something more than instinct—to originate. A small minded man may be sharp and shrewd enough to .follow and pick up' the mental cnftnbs of a large mind, and turn the same to profitable account Our longheaded John Calvin, our broadheaded Martin Luttier, and our highheaded John Wesiey, lead their millions of followers to day. Newton, Harvey, Fulton and Gall were large minded men, and made original discoveries. We, lesser lights, profit by their teachinga, and follow in their wake. The only objection to this "rut fraternity is, that they oppose measures which, if carried out, would result in their good. The world changes. One season succeeds another. Daylight succeeds darkness. One generation—yes, generation—succeeds another. ' And the world moves. Let as move with it, Those who oppose will...

Truth the Best Policy. It is related of'a Persian mother, on giving her son forty peices of silver as his portion, that she made him swear never to tell a lie, and said: • "Go my son; I consign thee to God and-we shall not_meetJiere_again_ tilLthe day of judgment." The youth went away, and~the party he traveled jwith wer^assujted^y rpbber3.t-Gne^HbwHasked^the^boy^what-he-had and he answered: "'Forty dinars are sewed in my garments." The robber laughed, thinking that the boy jested., Another asked the same question, and received the same answer. At last the chief called him asked him what he had. The boy replied: "I have told two of your people already that I had forty dinars sewed up in my clothes." The chief ordered his clothes to be ripped open, and the money was found. "Aid how came you to tell this ?" "Because," replied the boy, "I would not be false to my mother, to whoml promised never to tell a lie."

Old Maids •• -A quaint aijd gallant writer some fifty years ago said: "I love an old maid —I use the singular number, as speaking of a singularity in humanity. An old maid is not merely an antiquarian, she is an antiquity; not merely a record of the past, but the very past itself; she has escaped a great change, apd sympathizes hot in the ordinary mutation of morality. She inhabits a little eternity of ' her own. She is Miss from the begining of the chapter to the end. I do. not like to hear them called Mistress, as is sometimes the practice, for that looks and sounds like a resignation of despair, a.voliintary extinction of hope.

The World Ovee.—From all parts of the world we continue to receive tidings of destruction of life arid property by flood, fire, and shipwreck. Iu China, the storms and floods, of which we have previously had some accounts, are reported t bhavesweptaway three thousandpersons. The Russian mining town of Bogoslovsk, in the Uural Mountains, has been burned by incendiaries; and, in addition to the great disasters in our own country already chronicled . we are beginning to receive accounts of numerous wrecks which occurred during the late gale along the Lake and Atlantic coast At Halifax, ports on the St. Lawrence, and on both sides of the great Lakes, the devastation has been unusually heavy.

We may never Know We may. never know of the anguish bidden beneath smiling eyes. We may never - know of the vveaiy hearts beside us day b y day, whose prayer ' is for strength to wait till God shall say "Well done."

Pi/u«k.—Pluck is what wins the great victories of the world, when to it is joined the physical stamina requisite for constant work. Let the slow boys read the following: It is not unusual to find that the leading men of our-day, , or any other day, were very unpromising boys. Daniel Webster, the acknowledged statesman of Amer ica, was notoriously dull when a boy, a poor scholar in college, and graduated without honor. Henry Ward Beecher, indisputably the most popular divine in this country was a fourth-rate scholar when young and completed his studies without distinction, except on the play-ground.— Robert Eantoul stood near the foot of his class hi college. Sijjt Walter Scott was rather a dullard when a boy. Patrick Henro whose oratory stirred the hearts of the IT. F. ' Vs., was too stupid a boy to keep on the shady side of the tree under which he would lie, like an unthinking brute, the livelong day.
