Hark I tbe voice of Jesus calling,
“ Who will gj ami werk to-day?
Fields are white, and harvests waiting,
Who will bear the sheaves riway ?’’
Loud aud long the Master calleth ;
Rich rewards He offers free;
Who will answer, gladly saying,
“ Here am I: send me, send me ”?
If you cannot cross tbe ocean,
And the heathen lands explore,
You can find the heathen nearer—
You can help them at your dooh
If you cannot give your thousands,
You can give the widow’s mite;
Aod the least you gire to Jesus
Will be precious in His sight.
If you cannot speak like angels—
If you cannot preach like Puul—
You can tell tbe InVe of Jestis—
You can say He died for all.
If you cannot rouse tbe wicked
With tbe judgment’s dread hliirhls,
You can lead the little children
To the Saviour’s waiting artos!
Let note hear you idly saying,
“ There is nothing I can do,”
While the souls of men are dying,
And the Master calls for you.
Take the lask He gives yon, gladly ;
Let His work your pleasure be :
Answer quickly, when He calleth,
“ Here am I: send me, send me.”

The Parents’ Jewel.
It was a lovely day in May<
when all nature seemed to invite
one without to inhale the balmy
air, that a young girl of sixteen,
yielding’ to the delicious influence
of the season, selected a favorite
author, and sought the shady, and
quiet retreat of a small summer
house, where she could commune,
undisturbed, with the volume which
she had brought with her to pc
t usie Crayton Wits the idol of
the household —the object on
wh m the fond hope- of both
parents were bestowed. With
what zealous eyes had they
watched her early childho d, atld
how- untiringly labored to improve
her young mind, with proper and
useful impressions, which might
never he erased, but which might
prove a shield of defense in the
hour of temptation, should that
hour ever come.
It was a pleasant duty for Mrs
Crayton—the sacred task of teach
ing her daughter, and of pointing
out to her the path of duty, in
which 6he should walk.
Sncli pure and eminent charac
ters as Ilaunali Moore, Mrs. Sher
wood and others were models for
Day after day, and year after
year, had the loving mother en
deavored to impart to her daugh
ter more attractive graces and
sweeter charms, than Could be re
ceiVed from the gay World of
fashion. Nor were her efforts
Among the many beautiful girls
of M , Susie Crayton was
♦he chief object of admiration, i
who won every heart which came
within the sphere of her influence.
Hers was not a mere external
beauty, with a pretty face, fine
eyes, and a set of white, pearly
teeth —a warm heart, full of noble
and generous impulses, and gush
ing in love; and kindly deeds to
her fellott beings—a heart attuned
to sympathy, with a mind polished
and filled with valuable informa
tion ; these were Susie’s accom
plishments, which reudefed her
beautitul, and the object of so
much regard. She was also a
sweet performer on the harp, and
her touch gave forth a geutle
melody, which went directly to
the hearts of her listeners, like
the soft notes of the Julian lyre.
Susie Craytou was the child of
wealth, and every desire of her
heart had always been gratified,
i Life to her was a perpetual scene
lof sunshine, and she heard no
(“ WHAT IS IT BUT A MAP OF BUSY LIFE ? ”)
sounds, save the sweet notes of
birds, as they warbled their goti
tie strains of melody through the
groves and the green meadows.
To Susie all nature was but a
bright panorama, embellished by
the pencil of tbe great Artist,
with majestic mouritains—with
loveiy streams, chanting music ad
they hurried on their way to be
lost in the great Ocean. In sitch
a beautiful world, so full oF the
melody of birds, of ihe delicious
perfume of flowerS, with kind
friends to cheer us by their smiles,
how Can one be unhappy,
sad, arid despondent! As if the
sun never shone to gladden our
llbitrtS; as if there were no flow
ers to refresh us by their fra
grance; no grand mountains, noi
peaceful Valleys, nor luxuriant
forests, nor splendid landscapes
to vary the monotony of the scene!
How can one be gloomy, when all
around is so joyous, and a thou
sand tongues were offering up
thanksgivings to the Bountiful
Benefactor ! Pious reflections were
there, which filled tlie mind of the
gentle girl, and which influenced
all her actions. She had never
known sorrow from her own ex
perience, yet she knew how to con
sole—and who could tell how many
were the children of poverty, into
whose hearts she had sent sun
shine. But the scene changes—
fortune is fickle!
Only two years have winged
their flight, but what changes
have taken place in the quiet little
village of M ?
Mr. Crayton is dead; died a
bankrupt, and left his family in a
His fine residence, with all his
real estate, was seized for debt,
and Mrs. Crayton and her daugh
ter; with heavy hearts, took leave
Of their dear and much loved
home—once so happy and bright,
in days of prosperity—for an
liiimble and obscure cottage, in a
lonely part of tlid village.
The voices and merry laugll of
friends are never heard now, with
in the walls of that little and ob
scure cottage on the hill; and the
hearts < f a sad and afflicted Widow
and orphan daughter are never
made glad now, as in days of
yore, by social converse. All—
all have fled with the glittering
pomp, purchased by wealth.
The birds sing as sweetly as j
ever they did in the groves and i
meadows; the sun shines as bright,
and the voice of nature is not
mute—and to the orphan girl that
voice Still speaks to her sorrowing
heart, but in gentle accents—
whispering the solemn words of j
Inspiration, “vanity, vanity; all j
is vanity. Alas! She had turned
a deaf ear to its whisperings,
only to wake too soon, and to find
that everything was indeed illu
sive and full of deceit! That thp ;
dearest friends were only friends i
iu prosperity, who cared no more
for a poor orphan girl, now home
less, and bowed down by sorrow
Ah! It was a bitter lesson—
this first lesson Horn the experi
ence of life, which the tender girl
had how to learn. ‘‘ But it is
well she murmured.” that I should
learn it, and that I should drink
the bitter cup its dregs. It
might have proved my ruin; but
the bright and gaudy colors to the
picture of life, which so allured
me, and so charmed my senses by
its brilliant and empty baubles,
have all melted away, and left me
j alone with the reality.
Never again will 1 yield to the
It was a lovely night, as Mrs.
I Crayton and her daughter sat iu
I the little verandah of their hum
The moon was full, clothing
every object in a robe of silvery
light, while the mournful notes of
the whippoorwill sounded clear
and shrill upoti the night air.
As they sat and looked out upon
the scene before them, both were
silent alii busy with the thoughts
df the past.
“Dear mother!’’ eiclaimeu
Susie, as if divining the theme of
her mother's thoughts. “This will
not always be our home. You
know I Can teach; and in a few
years tfe Will be able to leave
M and to purchase a little
home where we can once more be
contented. I have already spokert
for a situation in a school, and
will know the result in a few days.
So be cheerful, dear mother, and
do not give way to despondency
and to gloom! ”
“ My precious child ! ” was the
response. “ How can I let you
go away, to toil and struggle for
me?—you who have never known
sdrroW nor grief, nor any carel—
How 1 have prayed to our Heaven
ly Father, that He might spare
you those bitter trials; y et, if it
must be, I trust lie will sustain
you through the ordeal, and ena
ble you to triumph.”
‘ Have you forgotten, dear
mother,” said Susie, “your early
lessons to your daughter—never
to be ashamed of work, ashamed
of the poor, nor ashamed to do
good? Thanks to you, my dear
mother, • 1 have none of these
small vices! ’ If wealth tills me
with pride so as to make me scorn
the poor, then I have no desire to
bo wealthier than 1 am now.—
Poverty is no disgrace, dear moth
er. There are many noble spirits,
pining away in solitude —shut out
by this cruel barrier—who would
become, if allowed a chance, bright
and useful ornaments to society.
Oh! when will the world cease to
persecute the pc’e’r —cease adding
fresh grief to their already over
flowing cups of bitterness?”
“ My dear daughter,” ejaculated
Mrs. Crayton, “ you are, indeed, a
JeWel—So noble, and so different
from y filing ladies of yotrr owe
age. You are correct in your
views; a bright path lies before
you—if not one of worldly honor
—one in which you will have the
approving smiles of conscience,
and the sweet satisfaction that
you are doing your duty, dud at
the same time ministering to the
wants of the needy.”
A iew days after this conversa
tion between Mrs. Crayton and her
daughter, a gentleman Ctllled at tlifi
little cottage on the hill. He de
sired to see Miss Susie Crayton a
few minutes alone.
The gentleman proved to be
Mr. Browning, one of the trustees
of the school, of which she had j
applied for teacher. “He had j
the pleasure,” he said, of inform
ing Miss Crayton that she had
been unanimously elected teacher,
with a salary of 700 dollars; and j
they desired tha‘, she would enter !
upon her duties one week from
that time, lie further stated, that
Mrs. Browning was in delicate
health, and would be glad to se
cure the services of Mrs. Crayton
no a kind of superintendent in the
household, with a salary of 500
dollars. Such was the purport of j
Mr. Browning’s mission to that
humble cottage on the hill.
Once more did the hearts of the
widow and her daughter throb
with bright anticipations for the
future. Grateful emotions, too,
filled their hearts towards their
Six years have passed, and Mrs,
Crayton is now the wealthy Mrs.
Browning, and Susie has become
the wile of a prominent member
of Congress. But she is the same
gentle Susie still —the same prince
less Jewel, doing good and speak
ing words of consolation and
sympathy wherever she can find
! a heart depressed by sorrow.

Caution To Liquor Sellers. —
A few days ago; at North Adams,
Mass.; tlie StUtb UottstaMe seized
ajar df rum and arrested the par
ty in whose possession it was
found, for selling intoxicating li
quor. At the examination before
the District Judge he swore and
testified that lie had seized tlie
liquor, aud made a detailed state
ment of the facts. lion, bhepnrd
Thayer, attorney for the prisoner,
asked liitil it he knew it was liquor.
He replied, “ Yes, it was rum.”—
lie was then asked how he knetv
it was rum, and lie replied that
he drank s. me of it. The pri
soner, who was a woman, was
then culled as a witness in her
own behalf, when the following
questions and answers were put
and received :
Q. Did you have any liquor in
your house when the State Con
stable called there?
A. Yes— I had some iu ajar.
1 1 llow long have you had it?
A. About six months.
Q. Did you have it to sell?
A. Oh, no. 1 don’t sell liquor.
Q. What did you have this rum
A. I kept it to wash the baby.
Q. Had you ever washed the
baby in this rum?
A 0, yes, olten! I used to turn
somoout in a dish, wash the baby
in it, and then turn it back in the
Q Do you mean to say that tills
was the same liquor of which the
State Constable drank?
A. The very same.
There was great laughter in the
court, and the State Constable de
clared lie would seize no more
liquor that was kept in a jar. He
is about the only man in North
Adams that will take offence if
yon ask him to take a drink.
