"I really wish, deacon, that you
would tell nio what your candid
opinion of our minister is?"
Deacon Brown looked meditative
ly at the speaker, a small, wiry
looking man, whose features were
almost as sharp as the sharp, black
eyes fixed so intently upon him.
"I don't know, Brother Quimby,
as candid opinion of our minister
would do him any good."
"I daro say not," responded Mr.
Quimby, darkly ; "but then it would
do me a great deal of good to hear
"I don't know as to that either."
"There's no one in the church
whose opinion I think more of,"
continued Mr Quimby. "Not that
1 approve of giving it to everyone.
But you needn't bo afraid of saying
just what you think of me, deacon,
for it won't go any further, and it
might serve to clear up some doubts
that trouble me."
"Well about various things. But
you haven't told me what your opin
ion is, deacon ?"
"I l:ave only one opinion of Eldtf
Wukeinan, and that U that he is a'
man that tries to do his duly in all
tthc relations of life."
This was evidently eomething that
Mr. Quimby neither expected nor
desired to hear, and lie stared blank
ly at the speaker. But quickly re
covering himself, he said :
"Ha! I think I understand you,
deacon. What you say is very well
put indeed. I have thought that he
might he a leetle more willing to
take advice; but there is no ques
tion in my mind but what he tries
to do his duty, as you say. But is
he sound ?"
"Perhaps not. Some ministers are
The merry twinkle in the good
deacon's eyes found no reflection in
the solemn visage opposite him.
"It's no laughing matter, deacon,"
responded Mr. Quimby, with a re
buking shake of the head. "I am
surprised that you should speak on
so serious h subject with such un
seemly levity. I referred to being
sound in doctrine. I havo been a
good deal exercised in my mind in
regard to this ever since I heard his
sermon ou 'Justification,' which is
no justification nt all, as I under
stand it, and as good old Dr. Scaver
used to lay it down. Dear old man !
I wonder what he would say, if ho
could come back and hear the new-
r Tangled ideas that are taught from
the pulpit where he preached such
good, old-fashioned doctrines nigh
on to twenty years."
"If he's where I think he is, he
doesn't want to come back. I only
hope that some things ho used to
preach about are clearer to him
now than he ever succeeded in mak
ing them to mc."
"There's no merit in believing
where everything is made clear.
There are mysteries of faith, deacon,
that nobody has any business to try
to understand. Now, Elder Wake
man is forever prcachiug about what
we ought to do, as though such poor,
weak creatures as we arc can do
anything toward effecting our sal
vation. As for me, I'm free to
own that I don't consider anything
I have done, or am doing, of the
least account whatever."
"A man ought to know better
than anyone else the quality of his
own works, Brother Quimby, so I
won't dispute you on that score. So
far as I am concerned I feel that the
Lord will have quite enough to do
in effecting the work you allude to
if I help Him all I can."
"Well, deacon, I wish I could
havo my mind cleared up in regard
to Elder Wakeman. What did you
think of his sermon last Sabbath
"There is one thing I might say
about it, if I thought it a prudent
thing to do. Wc can't bo too care
ful speaking, especially if it's any
thing that's likely to affect the
character and usefulness of a man
like Elder Wakeman."
"Very true, deacon. But you
needn't be afraid of my telling; I'm
not one of the leaky sort. I knew,
as well as I wanted to, that a man of
your sense couldn't approve of 6uch
doctrine as that."
"Oh, I've nothing to say against
the sermon; it was a very good
discourse you won't often find a
better. But the fact is, every word
it contained I really don't know
that I ought to mention it, though ;
if it should get about, it might make
"I'll never lisp a syllable of it to
any living soul," was the eager re
sponse. "Well" here the deacon lowered
his voice to an impressive whisper
"I havo a book at home which has
every word of it in."
Here the train for which Deacon
Brown was waiting came rushing
up to the depot.
"Is it possible?" ejaculated Mr.
Quimby, with uplifted" eyes and
hands. "But you haven't told me"
Deacon Brown was already up the
steps,- smiling and waving his
adieus from the platform of the
i car car, which rapidly disappeared
around a curve in the road.
ne was absent nearly n week.
When he returned, he found not
only the church but the whole vil
lage in a state of excitement and
Ho had not been home more than
an hour when Elder Wakeman call
ed on him, and in the course of the
day ho wns waited upon by two
deacons and several church mem
bers, to say nothing of being inter
viewed by various of his acquaint
ances and neighbors, all of whom
were anxious to ascertain if there
was auy truth in the rumor of the
grave charge he had brought against
Deacon Brown, though evidently
somewhat startled at first by a re
sult so little anticipated, took all
this with his usual calmness and
serenity. He was very reliccnt on
the subject, asserting that he had
said nothing that he was not both
able and willing to prove when the
proper time came to do so. His in
terview with Elder Wakeman was a
private one, but it was noticeable
at its close that the countenance of
the latter had a serene, almost smil
ing aspect. But as the elder took
no measures to prevent the meeting
of investigation that had been call
ed, no particular importance was
attached to this. He did not seem
disposed to talk much about it,
merely saying "that ho thought the
deacon ought to have an opportuni
ty to prove or explain what he had
every reason to believe ho had said
The meeting in question was held
at the vestry, which was filled to its
utmost capacity before the two
chiefly interested, Elder Wakeman
and Deacon Brown, entered, and
who appeared to be the least excited
Mr. Quimby was there, full of
importance, and with an exultation
of look and manner only thinly
veiled by the gravity that over
spread his countenance. He was
standing by the stove, the center of
an interested and curious circle,
when the two entered, but he avoid
ed meeting the eye of cither.
At the motion of Elder Wakeman,
one of the deacons called the meet
ing to order, briefly explained its
object, the serious nature of the
imputation under which their pas
tor rested, and, appealing to Deacon
Brown to put a slop to the talk it
bad occasioned by either denying or
proving his assertion.
Bisiug to his feet, Doacon Brown
looked around upon the excited and
curious faces that were directed to
"Behold, brethren, how much mis
chief the tongue can do! I said a
few words to one of you, under a
pledge of secrecy. I think it was
under a pledge of secrecy, Brother
"I considered it to be my duty to
tell what you told me," said the
individual addressed, turning very
"You arc to be commended for
having performed your duty so
thoroughly," continued the deacon ;
"o very painful duty, as it is easy to
seel I understand you have said
that I told you Elder Wakeman
stole his sermon from a book in my
possession ; arc you sure that I used
tho word 'stole,' Brother Quimby?"
"You said that you had a book
that had every word of it in !
Where's the difference, I'd like to
know ?" was Mr. Quimby's prompt
and triumphant rejoinder.
"There might bo none at all, and,
again, there might be a good deal,"
responded tho deacon.
"I did use the language ascribed
to me by Mr. Quimby," continued
Deacon Brown, addressing the rest
of the assemblage; moved thereto
by his evident desire that I should
say something to our pastor's dis
credit, and without a thought that
it would lead to all this troublo and
excitement. I declare, furthermore,
that I have seen a book containing
every word of his sermon in Elder
Wakeman's own library. I have
taken the liberty of sending for it,
and will offer it as evidence as to
the truth of ray statement."
Taking a ponderous volume from
the hands of his son, who had just
entered, Deacon Brown laid it on
the table before the presiding officer,
who, carefully adjusting his specta
cles, opened it.
Giving ono glance at its outspread
pages he raised his eyes to the
6erene and. kindly face opposite.
"Why, this is a a dictionary!"
"Very true," responded Deacon
Brown. "But you'll find every
word of Elder Wakeraan's sermon
in it if you look long enough."
"I must confess, however," added
the deacon, as soon as the general
laughter and astonishment had sub
sided a little, glancing smilingly
across the tabic at Elder Wakeman,
"that there aro not many that cau
string them together so as to form
such an interesting and instructive
Here the elder and deacon shook
hand?, which was the signal for a
general haud-shaking, congratula
tions, and good feeling. No one
was dissatisfied, with the exception
of Mr. Quimby, who, mortified and
confounded at the unexpected turn
affairs had taken, had slunk from
the room. Mary Grace H alpine, in

Starting i Life.
The first great lesson a young man
should learn is, that he knows
nothing. The earlier and more
thoroughly this lesson is learnt, the
better. A homebred youth, grow
ing up in the light of parental
admiration, with everything to
foster his vanity and self-esteem, is
surprised to find, and unwilling to
acknowledge, the superiority of
other people. But he is compelled
to learn his insignificance; his arts
are ridiculed, his blunders exposed,
his wishes disregarded, and he is
often made to cut a very sorry
figure, until his seif-conceit is abas
ed, and he feels that he knows
When a yonng man has thorough
ly comprehended the fact that he
knows nothing, and that intrinsical
ly, he is of but little value, the next
thing is that the world cares nothing
for him. He is the subject of no
man's overwhelming admiration ;
neither petted by tho one sex, nor
envied by the other, he has to take
care of himself. He will not be
noticed until he becomes noticeabln;
he will not become noticeable until
he docs something to prove that he
is of some use to society. No re
commendation or introduction will
give him this, or ought to give him
this; he must do something to be
recognized as somebody. There is
plenty of room for men in the world,
but there is no room for idler.
Society is not very particular what
a man docs, so long as he docs some
thing useful, to prove himself to be
a man ; but it will not take the mat
ter on trust.
There is no surer sign of an
unmanly and cowardly spirit, than
a vaguo desire for help a wish to
depend, to lean on somebody, and
enjoy the fruits of other people's
industry. There are multitudes of
young men who indulge in dreams
of help from somo quarter, coming
in ata convenient moment, to enable
them to secure the success in life
which they covet. Thus, one of the
most painful sights in the world, is
that of a young man with a strong
constitution and a presentable
figure, standing with his hands in
his pockets longing for help. There
are positions in which the most in
dependent spirit may gracefully aud
gratefully accept assistance may,
in fact, as a choice of evils, desire
it ; but for a man who is able to help
himself to seek help from others, is
positive proof that he has been un
fortunately trained, and that an
indolent bias exists in his character.
Let us not be misunderstood. We
would not inculcate tho pride of
personal independence, which, in
its sensitiveness, repels the good
offices of friends. What we con
demu in a young man is tho habit
of dependence which makes him
anxious to accept as a favor, those
things which he might readily ac
quire by his own industrial exer
tions. A man who willingly receives
assistance, especially if he has
applied for it, invariably sells him
self to his benefactor, unless his
patron happens to be a man of sense,
who is giving absolutely necessary
assistance to one whom ho knows
to be both sensitive and honorable.
When a young man has ascertain
ed the fact that he knows nothing,
and that the world cares nothing,
about him, that hia success in life
must depend on his own exertions,
and that he must look to himself,
and not to others, for assistance, he
is in a fair position for beginning
life. The next lesson is that of
patience. A man must learn to wait
as well as to work; and to be con
tent with those means of advance
ment in life which wc may use with
integrity and honor. Patience is
oueofthe most difficult lessons to
learn. It is natural for the mind to
look for immediate results. Let
this, then, be understood at starting,
that the patient conquest of difficul
ties which rise in the regular aud
legitimate channels of business and
enterprise is not only essential in
securing the succe33 which a young
man seeks in life, bnt essential also
to that preparation of the mind
WHOLE NO. 466.
requisite for the enjoyment of suc
cess, and for rctainiug them when
gained. It is tho general rule, in
all tho world, and in all times, thrft
unearned success is a curse.
It is a rule also, that tho process of
earning success shall be the prepara
tion for its conservation and enjoy
ment. So, day by day, and week by
week so, month after mouth, and
year after year, work on; and in
that process gain strength and
symmetry, nervo and knowledge,
that when success, bravely and
patiently acquired, shall be yours,
it shall find you prepared to receivo
aud to keep it. The development
of all your mental and moral quali
ties in the brave battles of life will
amply reward you for the struggle.
It will help to make a man of you,
and give you not only self-respecl,
but the respect of your fellows and
ChUItuIc Children' IVnfarc.
Among cases of injustice to chil
dren arc those that not alone consist
in depriving them of food, clothes
and fire, in sending them out to beg,
beating aud otherwise physically
maltreating them. There is another
kind of injury often inflicted upon
children, which, though wisely dif
ferent in characler, is not infre
quently as pernicious in its results.
It is the utter indifference and heed
lessness on the part of parents con
cerning tho proper development of
the mental individuality of their sons
and daughters. With deep regret
and shame, in condemning a class
in society to which we ourselves
belong and whoso characteristics
we have studied, for years, we arc
compelled to declare this fault to

The evil is not deliberately intend
ed, but is the result of a narrow, re
stricted, tread-mill life. Farmers
should be the most independent,
lihcral-miitdcd, and thoughtful class
in the nation for our agriculturists
arc the 6iuew and back-bone of our
country. That thej aro not so is
their own fault. They sink simply
into the low idea ofraising so much
pork and beef, at so much per hun
dred, losing sight of the grander
thought that they arc raising food
for the world.
Iustead of regarding their work
as a scientific profession requiring
for its success the exercise of intelli
gence and information, they degrade
it into a hard, unremitting drudgery,
by which bread must be wrested
from an unwilling destiny. The
children soon learn from their cl
dera to regard it in the same man
ner, and very naturally determine
to earn their living in some pursuit
thrit will involve less toil aod yield
larger compensation, and which
will enable them to come within the
refreshing' influences of the breezes
of progress in the outside world.
Their home is uncongenial and
gloomy; their parents too over
worked to be either companionable
to them or to sympathize with their
youthful yearning for some brighter,
healthier mental atmosphere. Too
often they feel themselves regarded
as so many servants, whose service
does not quilt compensate for their
board and clothes. Of t liis they
arc often reminded when they ex
hibit unrest in the monotonous
treadmill, or evince any desire for
n higher intellectual culture. This
embitters the child against the
whole world, and he secretly de
termines to leave his home as soon
as he can for the purpose of "having
a good time," or, what frequently
turns out, a bad time; for if his ut
ter incompetencejto grapple with tho
world's difficulties and temptations
docs not succeed in wrecking him
body and soul, he usually becomes
a nonentity or no particular use,
cither to himself or the rest of hu
manity. Parents worry themselves accu
mulating money to leave their chil
dren, and by their uuwise lack of
education leave them perfectly un
fitted to take care of what has caus
ed them years fo toil to acquire.
How much better to have devoted
the effort to cultivating the highest
and noblest of a child's nature,
watching for the natural bias of
tastes, and directing their inclina
tions iu suitable directions. By tho
first plan they arc made helpless de
pendents; by the last they are able
to help themselves and others.

Capitol Appropriation tfflf. "Wd
have had enough of it and doubtless
our readers havo become tired of the
discussion, especially as it can now
result in no practical good. Whila
the bill was pending the JRepilblicart
sounded the key-noto of warning;
and Stfmonishcd our representatives
that the sentiment of their constitu
ents was adverse to the passage of
the bill. Now that the bill has be
come a law furtficf controvcrS$7
except in the courts, is useless.
We know Mr. Kimrael too well
to believe that his vote on this bill
was influenced by mercenary ccn'
sidcrations. The Lincoln lobby is a
powerful institution and it wields f
tremcudoud influence which is in no
measure trarablo to money.
Nobody in Min' district probably
questions the propriety of making
some temporary improvements on
the old capttol. But it does not
require discriminating powers of ft
very high order, to discern the dif
ference between an improvement on
the old capitol and the building of rt
wing for ft ncio capitol. The bill
docs not provide for improvement
of the old capitol but for the begin
ning of a new one. And itis precise
ly here that wc take issue with Mr.
Kimmcl. To adopt his own figure
no sensible man who has a houso
which can easily be made to answer
present necessities will invest money
in a new one until he has decided
where to build it.
If Mr. Kimmel thonght that thfl
appropriation was, as hcflays.excc''
sivc, he should have opposed it, anif
in doing so he would have received
the applause of his constituents.-
It is hardly conceivable to- us tha
Mr. Kimmel did not know the'
wishes of his constituents. We re
member distinctly of discussing the
matter with him when iu Lincoln
early in the session, and we certain--
ly gathered from hia remarks that at
that time he did not regard tho bill
with much favor.
The other appropriations mention
ed by Mr. Kimmel arc not subject
to the same objection's for the rea
son that there is no possibility of tho
removal of these institutions, and
so far as they apply to existing
buildingf, the bills making the ap
propriations do not provide for
new onea. So far as the Roform
School is concerned, we think it
should have been located at Omaha,
but the Lincoln lobby rrfetcd out
patronage to suit itself and placed,
it "where it would do the most
good." Baiter Co. Republican.
A woman has lately iitcrt found,
in a secluded cave near Udino, in
Italy, who had been imprisoned
thirty-three years. In 18-14, she be

of Austrian?, who, at that time

At her father's death, her sister,
whose hatred toward the Austrian
was equally as great, continued the
imprisonment. The unfortunate
woman, cm her liberation, had a
complcction of death-like pallor,
caused by the darkness in which
she had long lived, and her voice
bad departed, through constant
cries during Ore early part of her
sequestration for help. She could,
speak only in a hoarse whisper. In
humanity to man or woman "makes
countless millions mourft."
