Like many lads of his age, he felt at ? tunes that the paren'al hand which Bought to guide him aright, drew upon the rem too often. He wished to do j many things that his father disapproved and often bocau.e impatient when checked h^nsoff W1SCr &ud mor- eII?enenced than In this respect, James was like moa* young p^.ons, who think their parents or guardians over particular a^ulthcm, ai.a more inclined to abridge their plea enjoyments'0 ,he ^ of their " 1 Jhi"k father is very unkind," we i we heard a boy iny, when the act of ?he parent was dilated by the tenderest regard for his welfare. ? ''T^0t^r?nevcr lik?s to see me enjoy myse.f, says a little girl when some restriction was placed upon her. And yet that very restriction is meant to save her trom years of misery in after Children are not apt to think that their parents are older and more exr* rieneed than themselves, and in conse quence know bettor than they what is V1 1 " :r ^or do they comprehend thclovragand thoughtful Cire, deepen ing oneo into anxious solicitude, with w met) they are ever regarded. We do at this' because the th^l* children are not perfected, and theft- store of experience is small. Still nnrTnT'"f ut0LUndCrStand What th*,r parents teach them, and to act mere wisely than if they followed onlv their own inclinations. And it is to help them to act more wisely, and thus to secure happiness in the future, that their pa rei us and friends so often present good P'/ecepts to their minds, correct in them Tvhat they see to be wrong, and seek so coi stantly to turn their feet into ways of safely. But we were going to relate something about a lad named James Lewis, who was flfiL-en years old. A boy who has gaircc. that age. generally has his mind pretty well stored from books, and he is able to th:n* on a good many subjec's. And he is, moreover, very apt to have a good opinion of himself'and to believ. that he knows, ev?n better than his father, what is best !or him. James was just such a lad as we have hfre pictured, and his father often felt tioubled about him, when he saw ho* nc rreveringly he sought to have his owr way, even though it was not opposed by his parents. " My son," said Mr. Lewis, one day, after having vainly endeavored to make J?mes understand that something he wished to do was wrong, ??there are two waysm life?one leading to happiness, the other to misery. At first they run i almos'. siue by side, and we may easily [step from one to the other; but soon they diverge largely, and never come in ssgut of each other again 1 h'.< path tha. to destruction my son, looks more inviting to the young and inexperienced than the one that bads to happiness. - lie flowers t.'iat grow along the margin have brighter hues and more attractive perfume, while in the distance a hundred bright prospects are given to the eyes. 1 he young are naturally inclined to walk j in this path. Bu< God has given them parents and lnends, to point them to the bet'er wiy, and lead them therein, ihey stf.tid angt-;s of m rcy, sent from heaven io guide them in the way of life. James, try and get this thought to smk into ycur mind. An i now I leave you free. in this instance, to act as your mind n.ay direct ^ I lis?c pointed out the dati'-er that i:> b.'fore >ou. I h.ive told y^u that the way in which you desire to walk is not the right way. That what we feel inclined to do is not always best for us because our hearts are evil, and inclined to lead us into evil. Left free, as I now 1< nve you, my son, let me earnestly en t?? ftt you to choose the path of safety It may not be so inviting at first: you roaj not be able to enter it except through seif-denial; but you will 1101 walk in it long before dis overiug that tiic llowiTb w;iich spring up here and there have a sweet and soothing perfume, *nd that your feet aic not weary, al though the way looked rough when viewed from the path I have so earnestly warned you not to tike " We are sorry to say that the words of Mr. Lewis did not sink as deeply in o the heart of James as they should have done. It is true that he thought about them, and to a certain extent comprehended theii' meaning. But his inclination was stronger than his reason. As a father had not lain his commands on him, he, after a struggle in his own mind between a sense of right and a desire to euter into a pleasure whose charms his imagination had heightened, suffered himself to enter the way in which was no safety, and dreamed of danger, he was led aside into the commission of an act that violated human and Divine laws. When James returned home, he felt afraid to meet his father. Oh, how un happy he was ! Never in his life had he been so wretchcd. lie had gathered the first fruit that Lung temptingly from the branches that bent over the way he had chosen to walk in, but it had preved to his taste as bitter as wormwood. All that his father had said, when warning him not to choose the way of error, came vividly to his mind, and almost with tears did he repent of his folly. Alone in his room, bowed uown with shame and self condemnation, James Lewis sat after the shadows of evening had fallen. Gradu ally, as the twilight deepened, and his eyes seemed to reflect the objects around him, the mind of the lad became filled with confusion, and rapidly changing images. Suddenly there was a great change, lie found himself standing on a beautiful plain, from which departed two roads to THE WEEKLY STAR.

PorrmmM who act m afemta wfll be allowed ? emn niww! of twenty per f*nt wards which he was walking. His mind was tranquil and happy. One of these roads looked exceedingly inviting. Bright fleers sprung thickly beside it, and trees, among the branches of which spor ted bir^s of gayest plumage, grevr all along if? borders The other road s nted nothing attractive. The margin was nearly barren, and began at once to ascend a steep and somewhat rugged hill. As James drew near the point where these two ways diverged, he met an old roan, with a mild countenance, and eyes lit up by wisdom " You see before you," Raid the old man, ?? the Way of Life and the Road to Destruction. Chooso, now, which you will u alk in. The Road to Destruction looks far more inviting than the Way of Life, but the flowers you see have no sweet perfume, the fruits that hangs so temptingly from the trees are bitter to the taste, and the road which looks so smooth and pleas*n% is in reality stony. The farther you go in this road, the less attractive it becomes: but with every step of progress in the Way of Life, the more beautiful will all appear. The one leads to death, the other to life. Choose, now, the way in which you will walk." The boy paused only a few moments, lie looked, first at the attractive way, and then at the path so full of beauty. 4' The old man has erred," said he in his heart. " This is the road to happi ness and to life, and the other is the way te Destruction." And then he entered, with hurrying feet, the Road to Destruction. Earnestly the o7d man called after him, and ten d rl v did he warn him; but the boy heeded him not. In his eagerness to reach a Rpot at a short distance from the point where the two roads separated, and at whish there was a beautiful arbor, with a fountain throwing bright waters into the sunny air, his foot struck against a stone that was not perceived, and he fell to the earth with a stunning jar. He was in so much pain from the fall, when he reached the green arbor, that he could not enjoy its pleasant shade, nor take delight in the beautiful fountain. With a grown, he threw himself at fiill length upon the green sward, where he had lain only a few minutes, when he sprung to his feet in sudden terror, for close to him had crcpt a poisonous serpent, that was just abou: striking him with its deadly fang. With less ardor the boy moved on the way he had chosen. Soon a number of flowers, glowing in all the celors of tba rainbow, arrested his eyes, and he step pod aside to gather them. But their odor was so offensive that he threw them to the earth quickly. Another flower tempted him by its beauty : but, in plucking it, he tore his hands with thorns Pausing now, he looked back, and the wish arose in his mind that he had taken the other road. He would have retraced his steps, but he remembered the ser pent at the fountain, and feared to gp by that dangerous place again. So he moved on once more. Far in advance there opened before him a beautiful prospect and he passed on to enjoy the same. Bur, all was an illusion?like a mirage in the desert. When he gained the spot the attraction had disappeared. ''And now the road began to ascend, and to wind along the skirt of a forest. His heart grew faint as he entered dee^3r and deeper into this gloomy district, and yet saw no open space ahead. As he walked fearfully along, a roar shook the earth; then a beast of prey rushed past him, and struck his tangs deep into the vitals of some weaker an imal. Terror gave wings to his feet, and he ran deeper into the forest. Night at 1< ngth be ran to come. It was with diffi culty that he could see his way, or keep in the path which had become so rougU that he stumbled at almost every step. His feet were bruised and cut, and he walked onward in pain "Oh, that I had taken the other road," he said, pushing in the midst of the dark forest and looking back. But the cry of the wild beasts arose in the direction from which he had come. He moved apain, wii"n, suddenly a meteor shot across the sky. By the light which it gave lie .jaw himself on the very brink of a fearful gull, and he woald have been lost in another moment. The shock startled him from his dream. All was dark in the chamber where James Lewis sat, and it was some mo ments before he could realise the the fact that he was in his father's house, with two ways iu life yet before him, and he in freedom to choose the one in whieh ho would walk. Dear children, if you wish to enter the right way?the Way of Life, leading to everlasting felicity?you must do so through obedience. Yon cannot your selves know this way. It must be point ed out to you. If left to yourselves you would be almost certain to take the Road to Destruction. The way of obedienos is the way of safety. This way does not look inviting at first, but when yon have once entered it. you see that it grows more pleasant, attractive, and beautiful, at every step. Unlike other ways, no serpents lurk amid the waving grass; no thorns are among its flowers; it leads through no dark forest abounding in ra venous beasts. And, unlike the way which terminates in the gulf of Destno tioa, it ends in the Garden of God. Imj'Oetaxt Decision.?The Cincinnati District Court, not very long since, de cided that a broker who received a note to sell, having no suspicion that the en dorsement was a forgery, was not re sponsible to the purchaser of the note. On Wednesday the same esse was de cided the other way by another Cincin nati court. _______ (E7? The idea that to be great is to be happy, is one of the errors of all ages.
