Ba«n» I,o»t tho airrilait br BelnB Io» Smurt In Cn>M-£»mlnatlon. There Is a young; lawyer living In SJnrlem who enjoyed a rare opportunity T«cently. He had a case before a ref«roc, and on the opposite side as a •witness was his next door neighbor and rival tor tho hand of one of Harlem's swoetest maids; and they have •omo mijjhty swoot ffirls in Harlem, as everybody knows. The young men •were not enemies, al'thon^h the rivalry ^ra» pretty sharp; but they could •carccly be said to have cherished anything like brotherly love for eaoh other. The damsel In question is a delicate piece of Harlem Dresden, and It would have been the end of that man's chance to have sought to gain favor with her bjr gllngln? mud at the wtoerfellpw. To the superficial observer favors were about even, and a speculative observer would have R-iven or taken even money on the smart young- lawyer, who is not very good looking 1 , or on the handsome young tradesman, who is not very smart. This is tho way matters stood when the case came off before the referee. That case has now been decided, and »o is the case before the Harlem maid. And it all came about because the young lawyer was too smart, coupled •with the fact that the tradesman was too handsome. Most people know the legal latitude allowed on cross-exami- Bation. Our lawyer took advantage of It -to usk some very exasperating but •er/octly proper questions. He is something of a practical joker, as a Harlem man understands a joke. "What is your nnmo?" said ho, as a »tartcr. i "Ueorja H. Hcnklc," stammered the Witness (which it Isn't, of course, but which will doriffiit hero). "I know; but what is yonr lull namo?" "That's my full nnmo, sir, and you know it well enough," replied the witness, "It's your fnll name, Is It? What docs the 'H.' stand for—Ilii-um, Henry, Harrison or what?" "That doesn't make any difference; that's the way I sign it." "Excuse me, ray dear sir. WUi you kindly answer my q«e»tion?" Tho witness looked around helplew ' jly and with a very rod face. The r*f- «reo told him to answer. "That Is my full name," said ne «to(?freclly. "But the 'H'-don't you know your own name?" "Tho '11.' is just 'H.'; it doesn't stand , tor any thing but 'H.'" "Were yon christened George Hi" fUandly asked the lawyer. "N-n-no; not exactly. Yon §w, I" "Then the name you awore to In jour direct examination, »lr, ii not jronr real name?" 'The unfortunate witness bln§h«d (painfully and •qnlrnwd In hla chair. IB* looked as If he could have atrangled tth« I»wy«r right there. Once moro he toM»«d to explain, but the lawyer ont tfclioefi wrerel? with a homily on the -ol«nnitj of anoath. . » wu vm* ta court Wowr' «!?.'' w*|ttw npte to KB apolo- getic tone which made everybody but tho witness laugh. "I thought not," said the lawyer. "Now will you tell us why you sworo your name was 'George H.' and now swear it isn't?" "It is just -H,' and doesn't stand for any name at all I—I— You know, there's a man up our way of the same name, and we were always getting mixed up, and I just put 'H' in my name to prevent It That's all there Is about It, and he," glancing fiercely at the smiling lawyer, "knows all about it!" •'Got your letters mixed, eh? And so you added more letters to your name? Don't you know that you have no right to change your name without judicial authority. The witness was now so mad he couldn't speak. "Where do you live?" This question was n>ed at him In a tone which implied that It was expeoted that the witness might lie about It, and as he was the lawyer's next door neighbor it did really appear to bo absurd. But as soon as the witness could get his breath he answered it. "Do you sleep there?" ."Why, certainly." "Always?" "N-n-no; that is I do when I'm at home." "Then you are not ahvays at home, eh? Married?" "No." "Engaged " Objections were made and sustained, but this didn't prevent the liveliest kind of a blush from spreading over the young tradesman's features nor tho young lawyer from proceeding. "Engaged—in busi^c-io. 1 ' 1 "Yes." "What kind of business?" "Now look here!" broke In the badgered witness, "I don't see as that has anything to do with this case. I'm not going to answer all those fool questions; that's all there Is about it" "0, well," said the lawyer, "if you are ashamed to mention your business, or if an answer would tend to incriminate you I don't insist" This wont on for an hour, and when the witness was set at liberty he bolted for the elevated and went scurrying away to Harlem without unnecessary delay. The smart .young lawyer won his case before the referee; but that fact didn't afford him half as much fun as that cross-examination. He told all his friends about it, and the story went all over Harlem. The very next day but one saw o notice in the papers announcing the engagement of the Harlem maid to the handsome tradesman, Sho, too, had heard the story. When asked about the mutter she said: "I used to think there was something In that lawyer, but If he doesn't know any better than that he'll never amount to much.!'—N. Y. Herald.

"tot Nut Thr Left H»nd Know What ThT Right Hand Uoeth." A modern poet says: "Itisnot what man doea which exalts, but what man would do." Power, therefore, which decreases in the one, increases in the oilier—tlie power to do what needs to be done in the world. The ambitious man in public life, who is always calculating about the efforts of his speeches on his reputation, has no such degree of influence as the man who advocates tho right and is devoted in the interests of his country without regard to his own fortunes. One can not make as good a speech if he thinks of his own reputation. The eloquent man does not say to himself, as he goes on: "How eloquent I ami" The instant he grows self-conscious he ceases to be eloquent. True eloquence has an abandon to it. The hearers think not of the mail, but of the truth, and say, not "How eloquent he is," but "What he said is true." He who, doing a kindness,. is saying to himself: "That is most kind of me," has a patronizing manner which makes his very kindness an affront; his right ; hand stretched out to raise the fallen accomplishes less, if it must be withdrawn, now and then, to steal behind his bade, grasp his own left hand, and shako hands with himself on his own most desirable goodness. "Let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth." So we may consider it either way; as to character, which degenerates if one has a low and easy standard, and becomes fine and pure if one has a high standard; or as to service, which Is least efficient if one is self-satisfied, but it is most effective if one is h,umbleand self-forgetful, and these two—charac-' ter and service—are one. ' 'God resisteth the proud and giveth grace to the humble." He resists the proud, not necessarily by bringing calamities upon them, by casting the mighty down from their seats, but by the very tendency of the proud, self-satisfied one to degenerate. He gives grace to the humble bo- cause He can—because they are teachable, aspiring, obedient to His will, ready to do His work. God can not help one who is satisfied with himself, nor can anyone else. "Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit, there is more hope of a fool than of him." If we have a high ideal of the Christ-like quality, if we are ever struggling upwards, God helps us. He makes every circumstance, pursuit and experience help us. Our very buffeting will make us stronger. Ho will make all things work together for our good. He judges us not by what we are, but by what wo aspire to be. So let every one of us take as his own these noble words of a very great humble man: "I count not myself yet to have apprehended, but one thing I do, forgetting tho things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."— Prof. George Harris, in Watchman. AIDED BY A FRIEND. , An Incident ID the Ul» of » City Million. »rT. A woman, engaged in missionary work among the poor of Chicago, found a pitiable case of distress. While passing through the hallway of a tenement-house, she heard sobbing and moaning. Knocking at a door and entering » room she found a starving woman dangerously ill, with a child in her arms and no attendant It was a harrowing instance of hu- man'woe. Husband and wife had come from England to America, and had made a fair living for several years. Th'en the man's health failed, and the wife had exhausted their savings in nursing and finally burying him. With the baby In her arms she could not'find employment Starvation and death stared her In the face. Sho was tempted to think that except for the child the sooner life WM ended the bet- It was easy to g Ire nudicine and food and to restore the woman'* health. It hard to — ; --- 7 - , find work tor her. la«e-mak«, country. The missionary intere«ted ChicaffO ladies, and formed a lace-making class, which wa» tauffht by the woman. It was a temporary expedient for providing her with a little money until she could find something else to do. Incidentally it enabled the missionary, who joined the class, to become proficient in the art. Subsequently the missionary was employed among the Indians of the northwest, Sho was a practical woman, not content with religious instruction alone, and found the work depressing because' there was no industrial employment suited to Indian women. Her health and spirits failing 1 , she went to Japan, where the marvelous skill of the native lace-makers passed under her observation. Like a flash camu the thought: "That is what the Indian women can do. Why did 1 not think of ray poor Chicago lace-maker's trade when I was working ainoa^' them?" She wus so deeply impressed with this thought that slie returned to New York, enlisted the support of the missionary boards, and went to the Indian reservation to teach what she had learned from the woman whom she once rescued. Tho experiment proved highly successful, for the Indian women had a natural aptitude for lacc-nmkiug 1 and soon learned to do tho most delicate work. The system wns extended to many reservations, to the credit o£ the missionary—Miss Carter—whose own story has here been repeated. The forlorn lace-maker in Chicapo, starving and dying, seemed to have little potentiality for usefulness in tha world; and the missionary's call at tho tenement house was a trivial incident, an insignificant deedof kindnes, which gave no promise of large results. But nothing is so small or feeble as to be lost in the moral economy of God's universe. Tho lace-maker's talent and tho missionary's humane impulse were little things that passed without observation; but out of t.hem was evolved a system of industrial education for Indian women, the full results of which only Omniscience can know.—Youth's Companion. THE CHARITY THAT COVERETH. The Character nf True Friendship Illul- trated by » Parable. I am sure it is impossible for us to over-estimate the chemistry of influence, tho strong power of persons over persons. The closest vision- of a man is not always the most helpful vision; nay, you are sure to fiadsome blemish, some flaw, some stain, some evil, and often, quite unexpectedly, in that very trait that had attracted you to your friend; he is not so true, not so pure, not so noble. And when you become sure of that, your own growth into truth, purity and nobleness, so far as his influence is concerned, cease. It is just hero that one may show the most beautiful of all the graces of friendship —generosity, forgiveness, carefulness, charity. I have met a beautiful parable. "Dear moss," said the old thatch, "I am so old, so patched, so ragged, really I am quite unsightly. I wish you would come and cheer me up a little. You will hide my infirmities, and throug-h your love and sympathy no finger of contempt or dislike will be pointed at me." "I come," said the moss; and it crept up and over and in and out, till every flaw was hidden and all was smooth and fyir. Presently the sun shone out, and the old thatch looked frlorions in its glorious rays. "How beautiful the thatch looks!" cried one. "How beautiful the thatch looks"' cried another. "Ah!" said the old thatch, "rather let them say: 'How beautiful is the love of the moss,' which spreads itself un<l covers all iny faults, and keeps the knowledge of them all to herself, by her own grace casting over me a beautiful garb of freshness and verdure." In every true friendship there must be much of the charity that covereth, concealing where itcan not help tho human frailty and imperfection.—Dr. Wayland Hoyt, D. D. ••ChniiCM" tor Doing Good. No one has any right to suppose that he will do better by and by unless he is prompt to seize upon means arid plans for doing better. Better living uml better service do not come by chance. They are the'resnlt of thought- f ul and earnest effort. We grow as we go.—United Presbyterian. PITHY SAYINGS. Sharp Blantn Heard a'xl Bc.Echoed from the Itmn'A Horn. Time in an island of Eternity. bong prayers shorten devotion. A godly life is a living prayer that will never end. All that God requires of any of us la our prayerful best. The rest of Christ is only for those who are tired of sin. God's work should always be done in a Christlike spirit. The best aim to have In this life is to aim for Heaven. The devil always leads the man who hesitates about doing right. When we are living to do good we can depend on God and angels to help. Every man has a« much right to kill himself as ho has to live a useless life. The man who votes to sustain a wrong is helping the devil, whether he knows it or not. The devil was more anxious to destroy Job's Influence for good than he was to destroy his property. God. never calls anybody to a work that can be done with head and hands without any help from the heart. The devil will not care who does the preaching, so long as his plans are adopted' for raising 1 the money to run the church. No church is ever made a bit stronger by having an unrepentant sinner with a pocket lull of money walk up and Join it.

Many a man falls to do just the right thing at exactly tho right time because there is lacking the Impalpable something 1 to suggest a thought along the proper line. Then again there are others who lack the element of Introspection and who fail to observe in anything about them a spirit which, applied to life's purpose, acts as a force to move them on toward a desired goal. Hut Alonzo Stubbs was not that sort of a man. He was a poor but worthy citizen, with seven grown-up daughters. He tried to dress them well, but, despite the fact that they made their dresses over every season, and re- trimmed their hats, and economized in every possible way, the father felt that he could, without any real sacrifice on his part, spare a few of them as wives for promising 1 but seeming-Iy hesitating young men. One day last winter Alonzo saw an advertising clock that presented a new placard to the observer every five minutes. It struck Alonzo with a forceful suggestiveness. Ho bought one like it and arranged some placards to suit his own needs and wishes. The next Sunday evening he had it fastened against the parlor wall,,directly opposite to where the sofa stood. Reginald was just seating himself beside Roxiana when a tiny boll rung and the following lines flashed into view; "Lut Ihosa love now who never loved before, And those who always luvo now love the more." The young people laughed at the happy arrangement tho father had devised, and drew nearer each other. Presently tho bell rang again, and "Gas Bills Are Getting Higher?" met their gaze. They tried to laugh at this, but the effort was almost a failure. However, they looked into each other's eyes with a seriousness they had never exhibited before. The next placard— A sorrow shared is but half a trouble, But a joy ihaf» sh'.iru'J Is a joy raide double pleased them immensely. Here the bashful young man took her hand in his, something he had often wished to do, but until then had never mustered up sufficient courage to undertake. The next motto was less poetic, but more to the point: "Long Courtships Cost Money and Are a Great Waste of Time." H was followed by: Lot us, then, be up and doing With a heart for any fate, Lot's have rtono with endless wooing: Picase propose or emigrate. In five minutes more -the pledge had been made and Roxiana led her accepted lover from the room to make way for her next younger sister and hor beau. The coming of spring finds Mr. Stubbs no longer wearing an ultramarine expression on his face, but he goes whistling to and from' his work. His last daughter was married a week ttjro, and any one wishing- a match-making machine, almost as good as now and warranted to do the work, can buy his'at a bargain. Better come early and avoid the rush, for all the neighbors with marriageable daughters will be scrambling for it when they know it is for sale,— Hixon Waterman, in Chicago Journal Earth Ha* Ifefnn Wabbling.
