A Story With an Excellent Moral
Mrs. Pringle was "bilin' soap" in the back
yard, in a big black kcttlo set in an iron
ring with three legs. There was a roaring
fire under the kcttlo, and Mrs. Pringle, with
ner calico skirts pinned up about her ample
waist, and a large green sunbonnot on nor
bead, stood by the kettle stirring its un
savory contents with an old broom-handle.
It was a very warm day in June, but it
was also "the full of the moon." and Mrs.
Polly, a slight, rosy-cheeked girl of six
teen, gave the last of the pans a quick wip
ing with her dish-cloth, set it in the sun with
its dozen or more or shining mates, and ran
lightly hi to the kitchen of the old farm
house. Presently she came to tho door and
"Mother, there's a peddler coming in at
the gale. Do you want any thing!"
"No, I duano as I do yes, you can get
(no a spool of cither thirty-six or forty
white tnread. I alnt got enough left to fin
ish your pa's shirt."
In a fow moments Polly came out to her
mother with a yard or two of bright pink
ribbon trailing from nor brown lingers.
"O mother," she said eagerly, "can't I buy
(his ribbon t It's forty cents a yard, but
lie's got only this piece left, and he says I
can have all of It for fifty cents, and there's
Biost two yards of it."
Mrs. Pringle stopped stirring the soap,
wiped her hands on her apron, aud passed
the ribbon between her fingers while she
"Idunno, Polly; money's skeerce Jest

soporely, an' wo hadn't ought to spend a

could get this ribbon for 'bout twenty-five
cents a yard in town. But then get it if
you're so crazy for it."
Polly ran back lightly, a gratified .smile
oa her face.

but she was somewhat self-conscious, for

Polly had been thinking If many things
as the peddler spoke. One f them was of
a party she was to attend at the village
hotel that night; a party that was to be the
grandest affair of her life. Then she was
going to the city next day to spend a week
with a young girl who had recently spent a
month with Polly. Last of all, she thought
of a crisp ten-dollar bill upstairs in her own
Her grandmother had given her the bill
on her sixteenth birthday, only a week be
fore. She was free to do as she liked
with thi money, but she had not thought of
spending it without the approbation of her
parents. She bad, In fact, said that it
should be the nucleus of fund with which
she intended going away to school for six
months during the coming year.
"Are you sure I could sell it for twenty
or even fifteen dollars in the cityi" she
asked, slowly and thoughtfully.
"I vas shust so sure as dot I vas alive.'
"Even if I had worn it a little I"
"Dot vould mek no UfTrenca."
The end of it all was that when the ped
dler went away he bad Polly's ten-dollar
bill in bis wallet, and she had the necklace
hidden away, and was going about her work;
but she was not singing now.
"Well, did you get the ribbon!" asked
Mrs. Pnngle, when sho came into the
kitchen while Polly was laying the cloth for
"Yes," replied Polly.
"Didn't get any thing else but that and
my thread, did you.'"
Polly had suddenly found something to
do in the pantry, and affected to be so busy
there that sho had not time to answer her
Mrs. Pringle was not to be put off, how
ever. She stepped to tho pantry door und
"Didn't got any thing else, did you I That
peddler stayed in the bouse so long as I
was afcerd he'd coax you into buying some
thing else, and I dunno as you'd really
ought to have bought that ribbon, money's
so skeerce. Did he try to wheedle you into
buying some of his other gewgaws i"
"No-o-o," said Polly slowly as she bent
over the bread-tray with a crimson race,
Polly was a good girl and hated a false
hood. She had told an untruth before .she
realized what she was saying, and now she
began trying to excuse herself, and to per-
suado herself that sho bad not really told a
"Itisn't as though I had really bought the
necklace to Jhvy," she reasoned with herself:
"I'm only going to wear it tonight and a
few times may be when I go to the city to
visit Hattie, and then I shall tako it to a
jeweler and sell it before I come homo and
get twice as much as I gavo for it. Then
I'll tell mother all about it, and she'll be
glad I got it, so it really isn't telling a story
not to tell that I have it now."
But this reasoning did not relieve Polly's
conscience. She was strangely silent :it
dinner, and did not re.HU me her old checr
fulnoss even when the subject of the com
ing party at the hotel had been brought up
by her parents. Heretofore sho hud been
all animation whenever the party was men
tioned. "Aint you feeling well, Polly I" asked her
mother, noticing the change in her manner.
'Better take a little nap when you get the
dishes washed, and kind o' rest up for to
night." "I guess I will," replied Polly, and she
went up to her room an hour or two later.
Her now white muslin dress was lying on
the bed, its flounces crisp and fresh, and
tho ribbon she had brought of the peddler
knotted into a graceful bow, with long
ends, and pinned to tho waist. Polly's
spirits revived when she looked at her first
party dress, and, instead of lying down, she
sliped off her dark calico dress, and arrayed
herself in the muslin. Then the new neck
lace was clasped around her slender neck.
It was easier now to make herself think
that sho had done nothing wrong, and sho
stood before her little mirror for a long
time, viewing herself in this light and in
that, with a satisfied smile on her face.
Her mother helped her to dress for tho
"I guess you'll look about as well as the
best of 'em," sho said, with motherly pride,
when Polly was ready to surf. "That rib
bon is the finish in,' tech. I'm real glad you
got it, after alL O. how would you like to
wear my gold chain aud pencil your pa gave
me when we was married I You can. if you
want to. It's to be yours somo day, any
how." The day before Polly would have thought
this a great privilcgo, and would eagerly
have accepted the offer; but now she stam
mered as she said :
"I I don't know, mother. Msry Hazel
has some lovely pink rose out. and she said
she'd bring some to the hotel for me to
"O, that'll be better than the chain," said
Mrs. Pringle. "The chain nun.! be a good
deal for a girl of your age to wear. To my
way of thinkin', there ain't nothin' so nice
for girls to wearat uatchrel flowers. It's
purtier'n all tho jewl'ry they can pile on."
The necklace in Polly's dress pocket
seemed to burn her fingers, as sho touched
it at that moment. She intended putting it
on after she reached the hotel, and she did
so with a feeling of pride that rose above all
her sense of deceit and shame for the false
hoods she had told and acted.
Sho noted with secret satisfaction that the
girls of her acquaintance looked admiringly
at her necklace, and some of them praised it
opeuly. Mry Hazel bad brought the roses,
but Polly wore them thrust into the ribbon
of her bolt, aud not at her throat But when
she lay in her bed, late at night, thinking it
all over, her truer nature asserted itself
again, and she went to sleep with atroubled
Two days later she went to the city to
visit her friend. Hattie Martin. She was
eager to go for sererjal reasons, chief of
which bow was her desire to exchange the
aeeklaee for the money she had given for it,
even though sho got no more. Thea she
would tell her mother all about It. It would
be easier to do it then, she said.
Hattie Martin had arranged forsevearl
parties for Polly's pleasure, and they were
invited out several times. Polly wore her
aeeklaee on these occasions, but with dimin
ishing satisfaction each time.
When she took it off for the last time, it
was with a feeling of relief. The next day
was the last of her visit, aad she quietly
slipped out of the house alone, aad went
down town to the jewelry store ia which
she had decided to offer the necklace for

"Of whom did you buy !'
"O. of of can I get ten douars for it!"
She had a confused idea that there was
somethii.g wrong, and a bewildering sense
of not knowing just what she was -avin;.
Sho wanted to get her ten dollars aad go
away as quickly as possible.
"You will have to tell all you know about
this," said the man a little severely. "This
necklace is worth several times ten dollar,
and it was sold by this clerk a few weoks
ago to a lady living in this city. Since that
time it has been stolen, with other Jewelry,
some of which has been found in different
pawn shops; but the thief is still at large.
Jfow may be it will be easier for you to tell

"In court stolen thief!" the words
seemed burning into poor Polly's brain.
"O," she gasped, "I did'nt ttezl it! I don't
know I you can have it, sir!"
The clerk ran quickly around the counter,
and caught her by the arm as she turned to
walk away. She glanced up at him with a
look of bewilderment in her innocent face
and then fainted away.
When sho recovered consciousness, she
found herself lying on a sofa in the little
rear office. Several men were standing
around her, and she noticed, with a little
shiver, that a policeman stood near the door.
"Now, my child," said a gray-haired man,
after a few moments, "we don't really think
you stoic the necklace, but we want to rind
out who did. Please toll u all about how
the necklace came into your possession."
The kindly tone of the man reassured
Polly, and she told her story simply, in a
manner that convince! most of her hearers
of its truth. One rr.ernlier of the Arm, how
ever, seemed a little incredulous.
"With whom are you layiug inthecity!"
"With Mr. James Martin's family oa
"Very well. I shall go with you to Mr.
.Martin's house, and see how much of your
story is true."
Polly's tears and confusion only strength
ened the man in his resolve, and she was
forced to walk home xvith him, feeling more
than ever li'.;c a criminal.
Mr. Martin happened to be at home, and
easily convinced I'olly's escort that she had
told him this truth; hut she could not shake
off her feelings of intense chagrin and
The next day she gladly turned her face
homeward, resolved to bll the whole story
to her parent at once. It was harder than
ever to do this after she had bought a morn
ing paper from a newsboy, and found in it
her oivn name, in big. black letter, at the
head of acolumnl She read no morn, but
lowered her vail, and sat in tearful silence,
her head leaning against the car window alt
the way home.
She spared herself nothing when sho was
alono with her pirents, but told them tho
whole story, and then showed them the
paper in which her name appeared, and in
which an inconsiderate reporter had
smartly referred to her as "a vain aud-ver-dantynun';
miss from the rural districts."
who had "shone for a brief season in
fashionable society, in Mrs. K's pearls "
"Now, you see. my dear, what has dints
from your first attempt to keep something
from mother," said Mrs. Pringle. in a
kindly tone, as she sat by Polly's bedside,
bathing her burning tenfplo in cool water,
and soothing her as best she could.
"I tell you, Polly, dear, it's never safe for
girls to do any thing mother can't be told

selves lots of misery, if they nver did any
thing they wouldn't be willing for ma and
pa to know all about. Now you go to sleep

the matter again after this."
Tho peddler never came that way again,
and they never know how the necklace
camo into his possession. It seemed un
likoly that he was aware of its real value
when ho sold it to Polly. He might, how
ever, have been afraid to keep it longer in
his possession, and suddenly determined to
sell It for what he could, and rid himself of

Bible by the brightness of waters, and the
redolence of lilies, aud the swrtnes of

Sunday excursion, and :h horse race anil

joy that we want to spread it all over the
even days of the week, and you shall not

hung up like bIIs in n tower, beating a
perpetual chime of joy and glory and sal
vation aud Heaven: for I want you to
carry out the idea of the text, "aud call
the Sabbath a delight."
I remark, in the first place, we are to
find in this day the joy of healthy repoe.
In this democratic country we all hare to
work some with hand, some with brain,
some with foot. If there Is in all this
house a hand that has not, during the past
year, been .stretched forth to some kind of
toil, let it be lifted. Not one, not one.
You ssil the goods. You teach the school.
You doctor in the sick room. You practice
at ths bar. You lit a newspaper. You
tan ths hide. You preach the Gospel.
You mend the shoes. You sit at the shut
tle. You carry the hoi of brick up the
ladder on the wall. And the on occupa
tion is as honorable as th other, provided
God calls you to it. I care not what you
do. if vou only do it well.
But when Saturday night eoms you are
jaded and worn. The hand can not so
skilfully manufacture; the eye can not see
so well; the brain U not so clear; the
judgment is not so well balanced. A
prominent manufacturer told me that he
could see a ditrerence between the goods
which went out of his establishment on
Saturday from the goods that went out on
Monday. He said: "They were very
different indeed. Those that were made
In the former part of the week,
because of ths rest that had been
previously given, were better than
those that were msde in the latter
part of the week, when the men were tired
out." The Sabbath coms, and it baths
ths soreness Irom the limbs, quiets the
agitated brain and puts out the flros of
anxiety that have been burning all the
wftek. Our bodies are seven-day clocks,
and unless on the seventh day they sre
wound up they run sown into the grave.
There are thousands of men who have
had their lives dashed out against the
golden gates of the Sabbath. A promi
nent Iondon nierchnnt tfstltles that thirty
years ago he went to London. He says:
"I have during that time watched minute
ly and I have noticed that the men who
went to business on the Lord's day or
opened their counting houses have, with
out a single exception, come to failure"
A prominent Christian mrchant in Bos
ton ays: "I tlnd it don't pav to work on
Sunday. When I was a bov I noticed out
on Long Wharf there were merchants
who loaded their vessels on the Sabbath
day, keeping their men busy from morn
ing till night, and it is my olservation
tha'. they themselves came to nothing
the merchants and their children came
to nothing. It doesn't par," he says, "to

I apeal to your observation. Where
are the men who twenty years ago ww
Sabbath breakers, and who hare hssn
Sabltatb breakers ever since? Without a
single exception, you tell me, they have
come either to financial or to mcral lg
garsr. I defy you to jeint out a single
exception, and you can take the whole
world for your tleld. It has either been a
financial or moral defalcation in every
instance. Six hundred and forty physi

mad the mol! of the new huttle on ttse
Lord's day. So very busy was 1 during
the week that I had to occupy many Sab

that work on the Sabbath has Lean to my

that Sundav shuttle. " I will place In two

Again I remark, w lyeght to have in th
Sabbath the joy of domestic reunion and
consocration. There are some very good
when Sunday comes, and glad when itgjes
away. They thtuti of evs-ry thing bail on
that day. It is the worst day to them,
really, in all the week. There are per.ons
who, because they were brought up in
Christian families whr there wrong no
tions about the Sabbath, havegoueout Into
dissipation and will be lost. A man said
to me: "1 have a perfect disgust for th
Sabbath dav. I never saw my fathr
smile on Sunday. It was such a dresdful
day to me when I was a lny, I never got
over it aud never will." Those parents did
not "call the Sabbath a .Might;" they
made it a gloom. Hutthre am hour.
represented here this morning where th
children say through the week: "1 winder
wnen aunuay win come.' iney are am-
ious to have It corn. 1 .mar their lin.i'iiu I
iu the house; 1 hoar their hoauna In the
(Jod Intended the Sabbath to ! esp-c-ially
a day for the father. The mother Is
bom all the week. Sabliath day come
and God says to the father, who has been
busy from Monday morning to Saturday
night at the store or away from home
'This Is your day. Sse what you can do iu
this little Mock in preparing tbem for
Heaven. Th.s day I st apart for you "
Vou know very well that there
ar many parents who nre mer I
uu.ers or me nousenoiu; "'
jirovije the food and raiment; once in a
while, perhaps they hear the child read a
line or two in the new pr.mr. or. If there
be a case of e.pectal discipline and the
mother can not managn It, the child is
brought up in the court martial of the
father's ilscpline and puuishmL That Is
all there Is of it. No scrutiny of that child's
immortal interest, no realization of the
fact that the child will -xn go out in tlt
world where there are gigantic and over
whelming temptations tnat have swamped
millions. Hut In sum households it
is not that way; the home, beau
tiful on ordinary days. Is more
beautiful now that the Snbbath has
dawned. Ther is more jjy in the "good
morning," ther Is more tenderness in th
morning prayer. The fat hr looks at th
child and the child looks at the father
The little on dares now to ask ijnetlluns
without any fear of being answered
"Don't bother roe -I must Ih off to th
store." Nu.v the father looks at th child,
and h sees not merely the bin ye. the
arched brotv. the long lahs. the ist lip.
He sees in that child a long line of earthly
destinies; h sees in that child an immeas
urable eternity. A he touch, that child
he says: I wonder what will b th
destiny of this little on," And while this
Chiistian father Is thinking aud praying,
th sweet promise flows through his sou!
"Of such is th kingdom of llren " And
he feel a joy, not ilk that which sounds
in th dance, or is waf t I from th froth
of the wine cup, or that which is lik th
crackling of thorns under a pot. but th
joy of dome-tic reunion and consecration.
