Keep the Gate Shut,
An English farmer was one day at
work in his fields, when he saw a pacty
of huntsmen ricing about his farm. —
He had one field that he was specially
anxious that they should not ride over
as the crop was in a condition to be
badly injured by the tramp of the hor
ses. So he despatched one of his work'
men to this field, telling him to shut the
gate, and then keep watch over it, and
on no account suffer it to be opened.—
The boy went as he was bidden; but
was scarcely at his post, before the
huntsmen came up, peremptorily order
ing the gate to be opened. This the
boy declined to do, staling the orders
he had received, and his determination
not to disobey them. Threats and
bribes were offered, alike in vain, one
after another came forward'as spokes
man, but all with the same result, the
boy remained immovable in his deter
mination not to open the gate, yifter a
while, one of noble presence advanced,
and said in commanding tones: ‘My
boy, you do not know me. I am the
Duke of Wellington, one not accustom
ed to be disobeyed; and I eomniand
you to open that gate that I and tny
friands may pass through.’ The boy
lifted his cap and stood uncoveied be
fore the man whom all England delight
ed to honor, then answered firmly: ‘I
am Sure the Duke of Wellington would
not wish me £o disobey orders. I must
keep this gate shut, nor suffer any one
to pass but with my master’s express

ing the boy a glittering sovereign, the
old Duke put spurs to his horse and
galloped Away, while thfe boy ran oft' to
his work,shouting at the top of liis voice:
‘Hurrah, hurrah! I’ve done what Na
poleon couldn’t do—l’ve kept out the
Duke of Wellington.’
Every boy is a gate keeper and his
Master’s command is ‘Be thou faithful
unto death.’ Are you tempted to drink,
to smoke or chew tobacco? Keep the
gait of your mouth fast closed, and al
low no evil comparfy to enter. When
evil companions would eouneei you to
break the Sabbath, to lie, to deal false
ly, to disobey your parents, keep tlib
gate ot your ears fast shut against such
enticements; and when the bold blas
phemer would instil doubts of the great
truths of revelation, then keep the door
of your heart locked and barred against
his infamous suggestions, remembering
that it is only the fool who ‘hath said
in his heart there is no God. 5
Immortality. —How beautiful die fol
lowing gem from the" pen of George D.
Prentice, and how happy the heart
that ean see tlttse beauties as he por
trays them :
‘‘Why is it that the rairtbow and the
cloud come o’er us with a beauty that
is not of earth, and then* pass away,
and leave us to muse on their jaded
loveliness ? Why is it that stars which
hold their nightly festival around the
midnight throne are placed above reach
ol our limited faculties forever mocking
us with their unapproachable glory ?
And why is it that bright forms of hi>
man beauty are presented to our view,
aud then taken from us, leaving the
thousand streams of affection to How
back in Alpine torrents upon our hearts?
We are born to a higher destiny thsfn
that of earth. There is a realm where
the rainbow never fades—where the
stars will be set oqt before us like islands
that slumber on the ocean, and where
the beautiful being that passes before
us like a meteor will stay in our bres
BIT AMD BY.
By and by! We say it softly,
Thinking of a tender hope,
Stirring always in our bosoms,
Where so many longings grope.
By and by! Oh,love shall greet us
In a time that is to come,
And the fears tbafuow defeat us,
Then shall all be stricken dumb!
By and by! Then
Clouding o’er our sky to-day,
Shall be gone in glad to-morrows—
SbalL be banished quite away!
By and by! We say it gently,
Looking on Our silent dead,
Avd we do not think of earth-life,
But of Heaven’s sweet life instead.
By and by! We look in yearning
Toward tlife harbor of tbe'hlest,
And we see the beacons burning
In the ports of perfect rest.
By and by! Our ships shtjf anchor,
-If the tide and wind run la::;,
Some day in the port of Heaven,
Where our lost and loved ones arc.
By and by! Oh say it softly,
Thinking not of earth and care,
But the by and by of Heaven,
Waiting lor us over there!*

Letters ot Recommendation.
A gentleman advertised for a boy to
assist him in his office, and nearly fifty
applicants presented themselves to him.
Out of the whole number, he in a short
time, selected one and dismissed the
‘I should like to know,’ said a friend,
on what ground you selected that boy,
who had not a single recommendation.’
‘You are mistaken,’ said the gentle
man; ‘he had a great many. He wiped
his feet when he came in, and closed the
door after him, showing that he was,
careful. lie gave up his seal instantly

When I talked to him I noticed that
his hair’was in nice order and teeth as

name I noticed that his finger nails
were clean, instead of being tipped
with jet, like that handsome little ‘fel
