BY. H. A. BERTON. Of the several pillars of the church at Paw kin Center, deacon Barker was, by all odds, the strongest. His orthodoxy was tbe ad miration of the entire congregation, and tho terror of all the ministers within easy driving distance of the deacon's native village. He it .was who hao argued the late pastor of the Pawkin Center church into that state of dis quietude which had carried him through a few days of delir.ous fever, into the church triumphant; and it was also deacon Barker, whose questions at the examination of seekers for ex-pastor's shoes, had cast such conster nation into divinity-schools, far and near, that »oon it was very hard to find a candidate for ministerial honors at Pawkin Center. Nor was his faith made manifest bywords alone. Be the weather what it might the dea con was al ways in his pew, both morning and evening, in time to join in the first hymn; and on every Thursday night, at a quarter past seven in winter,, and a quarter before eight in summer, tbe good deacon’s cane and shoes could be beard coming solemnly down tbe aisle, bringing to the prayer meeting the champion of orthodoxy. Nor did tbe holy air of the prayer meeting, even one single evenin fail to vibrate to the voice of the deacon, as he mn/1n irk cni-intn Hoi Imwninsn li.in.Uln — T.. sions and tearful p'e dings before the throne, or— still strictly scriptural in expression—he warned and exhorted ihc impenitent. The contribution box always received his sixpence as long as snecie payment laded, and the smallest fractional currency note thereafter; and to each of the regular annual offerings to the missionary cause, the Bible cause, and kindred Christian enterprises, the deacon regu larly contributed bis dollar and his prayers. The deacon could quote Scripture in a man ner which put Biblical professors to the blush, and every principle of bis creed so bristleii with texts confirmatory, sustentive and ag gressive, that doubters were rebuked, and free thinkers were speedily reduced to speechless humility or rage. But tbe unreg- nerate, and even some who professed righteousness, de clared that -more fondly than to any other scriptural passage, did tbe good deacon cling to the injunction, “Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness.” Meek ly insisting that he was only a steward of the Lord, he put out his Lord's money that he mig it receive it again with usury, and so suc cessful had he been, that almost all mortgages held on property near Pawkin Center, were in the hands of the good deacon, and few were the foreclosure sales in which he was not the seller. The new pastor at Pa.vkiu Center, like good pastors everywhere, had tortured him self into many a headache over tlia perplexing question, “How are we to reach the impeni tent in our midst?” The said impenitent, were, with but few exceptions, industrious, honest, respectable .law-abiding people, and the worthy pastor, as fally impregnated with Yankee thrift as with piety, shuddered tc think of the waste of souls that was constantlj threatening. At leng'h, like many' anothei pastor, he called a meeting of the brethren, t< prayerfully considerthis momentous question The deacon came, ofcourse, and so did all thi other pillars, and many of them presentee their views. Brother Graves thought the fi nal doom of the impenitent sho. Id be more forcibly presented; deacon Slruggs bad ar abiding conviction that it was the man of sir holding dominion in their hearts, that kepi these people away from the means of grace deacon Poncer mildly suggested that the ob ject might perhaps be attained, it those within the fold mainta ne 1 a more godly walk and conversation, but he was promptly, though covertly rebuked by the good deacon Barker, who reminded the brethren that “It is the Spirit that qnickeneth’- ; brother Elite, who hadn’t any money, thought *he church ought to build a ‘working men’s chapel.” but this idea was promptly and vigorously combated by all men of property in the congregation. By this time the usual closing hour had ar rived, and after a benediction, the faithful dis persed, each with about the ideas he brought to the meeting. Early next morning, tbe good deacon Barkei with his mind had lull of the ^t-ite of the un converted, and half, of his unfinished cow shed, took his stick and hobbled about the vil lage in search of a carpenter to finish the in complete structure. There was Moggs, bul Moggs had been busy all the season, and il would be just like him to wan* full price for a day’s work. Stubb was idle, but Stubb was slow. Augur—Augur used liquor, and the deacon had long ago firmly resolved that not a cent of his money, if he could help it, should ever go for the accursed stuff. But there was Hay—he hadn’t seen him at work for a long time—perhaps he would be anxious enough for work to do it cheaply. The deacon knocked at Hay’s door, and Hay himself shouted: “Come iu.” “How are* ye, George,” said the deacon, looking hastily about the room, and delighted ly determining, from the patient face of sad eyed Mrs. Hay, and the scanty furnishing o the yet uncleared breakfast table, that he hat been providentially guided to the right spot “How’s times with ye?” “Not very good, deae’n,” replied Hay, “Nothin’ much doin’ in town.” “Money s awful skeerce,” groaned the dea eon. “Dreadful,” responded George, devoutly thanking the Lord that he owed the deacon nothing. “Got much to do this winter?” asked the deacon. isui a u—uay s jou—r.ot a single flay.” sor rowfully replied Hay. The deacon’s pious ear had beeu shocked by the young man's imperfectly concealed profanity, and for an instant he thought o administering a rebuke, but the charms o prospective cheap labor lured the good mat from the path ol rectitude. “I m filin’ my cow-shed — might p'raps give ye a.job on't. ’Spose ye’d do it cheap •eein' how dull ev’ry thin’ is?” The sad eyes of Mrs. Hay grew bright ir an instant. Her husband’s heart jumped up but he knew to whom he was talking, so li< ■aid, as calmly as possible. “Three dollars is reg’lar pay.” The deacon immediately straightened up, ai if to go. “Too much,” said he: “I’d bettei hire a common iab'rer at a dollar'n a half, ar< boss him myself. It’s only a covv-shcd, y< know.” “Guess, though, ye won’t want the nail! druv no less p’fickler, will ye, deacon?” in quired Hay. “But I tell yer, de icon whal I’ll do—I’ll throw oft fifty cents a day.” “Two dollars ort to be enough, George,” reasoned the deacon- “Carpenterin's pooty work, an’ takes a sight of headpiece some times, but there’s no intellec’ required to Wbrk on a cow-sbed. Say two dollars, au’ Come along.” The carpenter thought bitterly of what a little way the usual three dollars'went, and ol how much would have to be done with whal he could get out of the cow-shed, but the idea of losing even that was too horrible to be en dured, so he hastily replied: “Two an’ a quarter, an’ I'm you man.” “Well,” said the deacon, “it’s a powerful price to pay for work on a cow-shed, but I * poie I mus’stau’it. Hurry up; tliar’s the mill-whistle blowin’ seven.” thaiiwv!!'?1 ched 11 is tools> hissed a couple of soon w!erarVIlut of kis wife's eyes, and was looking on.n th; C0W'Bhcih with the deacon ing the carpenter ,SU(Mcnly, caus air, “think it over .-o.V,. ’ Immmer m mid Hay gave the cood ’ ,,aU eay two dollars.” glance, and for a tew dfacon a witliering suppressed profanity eauaea1?" tllc force of bang with unusual vigor Jt.ii 118 hammer to the cow-shed rubbed his’hatnk • owner of the industry of hi3 employe. m ccstacy at The air was bracing and the shone brilliantly, the deacon s breakfw sun digested fairly, and liis mind had not ^ freed it«elf ftom the influences of the bath. Besides, he had secured a gm„i Wo‘‘k man at a low price, and all these influences combined to put the deacon in a pleasant frame of mind. He rambled through hb mind for a text which would piously express his condition, and texts brought back Sun day, and Sunday reminded him of the meet ing of the night before And here was oik of those very men beforehim—a good man ir many respects, though he was higher-priced than he should be. How was the cause ol the Master to be prospered if his servants made no effort? Then there came to the deacon's mind, the passeg.—"He which con vertetb the -iuner from the error of his way, shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” What particular sins ol ,.... jhe deacon did not his own needed hl“lU*’ember just then, but find it convenient to eif UI1j the Lord, he meekly adinnt to ^ way> Then, that he had tM‘ > allj grace which were with that djrec the deacon solemnly characteristic oi n. , j Sao«eor«e, what is to be the sinners doom?” “I duuuo,” replied George, his wrath still I warm; “.pears to me you’ve left that bizness I till pretty Jate in life, deacon?” 1 “Gou t trifle with sacred subjects, George ” said the deacon, still very solemn, and with a suspicion of annoyauce in his voice “The wicked shall be cast into hell, with—'” “They can’t kerry their cow-sheds with ’em neither, interruped George, consolingly. Come, George,” said the good deacon, in in an appealing tone,“ remember the apostle say», ‘oufler the word of exhortation.’ ” '* ‘Xcuse^me, deac’n, but one suffering at a time; I ain't through suffering at being beat en down yet. flow about deacons not being given to filthy lucre ?’ ” “The good deacon was pained, and he was almost out of patience with the apostle tor writing things which came so handy to lips of the uu regenerate. lie commenced an in dustrious search for a text which should com pletely annihilate the impious carpenter, when that individual interrupted him with “Out with it, deac’n—ye hod a meetin’ Jas' night, to see what was to be done with the inipentitent. I was there—that is, I sot on a stool jest outside the door, au’ I heard all ’twas said. Ye didn’t agree on nothin’—meb be ye’v fixed it up since. Anyhow, ye'v sol me down for otic of the impenitent, an’ yei goin’for me. Well—” “Go on nailin’,” interruptel the economi cal deacon, a little testily; “the noise don’t disturb me: I can hear ye.” “Well, what way am I so much wickeder’n you be—you an’ t’other folk’s at the ineetiii’ house?” asked Hay. “George, I never saw ye in God’s house in my life, ’ replied the deacon. “Well, s’pose ye liev’nt—is God so small lx can’t be nowhere's ’xcept in your little meet in’ house? How ’bout his seeing folks ir their closets ?” “George,” said the deacon, “ef ye’r a pray in’ man, why don’t ye jine yerself unto lh< Lord’s people?” “Why? ’Cos tiie' ‘Lords people” as you cal ’em, don't want me. S’pose I was to com( to the meetin’-house in these clothes—the on ly ones I've got—d’ye s’pose any of tlx Lord’s peopie’d open a pew-door to me? An' s’pose my wife an’ children, dressed no bet ter n I be. but as coed's I can afford, was with me, hmv d ye s'pose Id feel?” ••Pride goeth before a fall, an’ a haughty spcrit belore”—groaned the deacon, when the carpenter again interrupted. “I’d feel as if the people of God was a gang of insultin’ hypoerits, an’ ez el I didn’t ever want to see ’em again. Ef there’s anythin’ wiong about a man s feelin’ so about himself aud them God give him, God's to blame for it himself,- but seem’ it’s the same feelin’ that makes folks keep 'em straight in all other mat ters, I’ll keep ou thinkin’ it’s right.” “But the privileges of the Gospel, George,” remonstrated the deacon. “Don’t yov s’pose I know what they’re wuth?” continued the carpenter. “Haven’1 I hung round in front of the meetin’-house summer nignts, when the windows were open jest to listen to the singin’ and what else ’ could hear?” Hezn’tmy wife ben with mi there many a time, and liavn’t both of u: prayed and groaned an’ cride in our hearts not only ’cos we couldn't join in it ourselves hut ’cos we couldn’t send the children either, w ithout their learnin’ to hate religion ’for* they fairly kuow’d what ’twas? Haven’t 1 sneaked into the vestibule winter nights ant sot jest where I did last night, an’ heard what I’d a liked my wife and children to hear, an; prayed for the time to come when the self app’inted elect shouldn't offend the litil ones ? An' after sittin’there last night, an: cornin’ home an' tellin’ my wife how folks was concerned about, us an’ our rejoicin’ to gether in the hope that some day our children should hev the chance we're shut out of now-, who should come along this moruin’ but one of those same holy people’ an’ Jewed mt down on pay that the Lord knows is hare enough to live on.” The deacon had a heart, and he knew the nature of self-respect as well as men gener ally. His mind ran entirely outside of texts for a few minutes, and then, with a sigh foi the probable expense, he remarked: “Reckon Flite's notion was right, after al —ther ort to be a workin’man’s chapel.” “Ort ?’’ responded Hay; “Who d’yi s’pose’dgoto it? Nobody! Ye can rent 11 second-class houses, an’ sell us second ham 1 clothiu’, and the cheapest cuts o’ meat, bu when it comes to cheap religion—nobod; knows its value better’n we do. We don’ w-ant ter go inter yer parlors on carpets am furniture we don’t know how to use, an’ w don’t expect to he asked into society when our talk an’ manners might make some bet ttr eddieated people laugh. But when i comes t > religion—God knows nobody need and deserves the very best article more’n w< do.” The deacon was a reasonable man, and be ing *ld, was trying to look fairly at matten up an which he expected soon to be thorough iy examined. The indignant protest of th carpenter had, he feared, a great deal of rea son, and yet—God’s people deserve to hob their position, if, as usual, the argumen ended where it began. So he asked, rathe triumphantly: “What is to b? dor.e, then ?” “Reform God's people themselves,” re p ied the carpenter, to the horror of the piou ohl man. “When the right hand of fellow ship is reached out to the front, instead c Etuck behind the hack, when a poor ma comes along, there’ll be plenty that’ll be glai to take take it. Reform yer cwn people deacon. ’Fore yer pick out of our eyes tin motes we’ll be glad enough to get rid of, yi can get a fine lot of he-avy lumber out of you own.” Soldier’s of the cross, no more than am other seddiers, should stand still and he pep pered when unable to reply; at least sc thought the deacon, and he prudently with drew. Reform God’s people themselves? The deacon was too old a boy to tell tales out cl school, hut he knew well enough there was room tor reform. Of course there was— weren't we all sinners ?—when we would do goo I wasn’t evil ever present with us?— w-hat business had other sinners to complain, when they weren’t at least, any better ? Be sides, suppose wo were to try to reform the ways ol brother Grave and deacon Stuggi and others he had in his mind, would thei rest until they had attempted to reforii him? And who was to knov just what quantity aud quality of re form was necessary? “Be not carriei about with divers and strange doctrines.’ The matter was too great for his compreben sion, as he obeyed the injunction, ‘ Commi thy way unto the Lord.” But the Lord relegated the entire matte; to the deacon. Hay did a full day’s work the deacon made a neat little sum hv rop,.v ering on an old judgment he had bought fo; a mere song, and the deacon’s red cow mad( an addition to the family in the calf pen; yei the deacon was l'ar from comfortable. Tin • idea that certain people must stay away frort God's house until God's people were re formed, seemed to the deacon’s really humam heart something terrible. It they would b< so proud—and ye’, people who would stain outside the meeting bouse and listen, am pray and weep because tlieir children wen as badly off as they, could scarcely be ver' proud. He knew" there couldn’t be man; such, else thi9 out-ot door congregatioi would be noticed—there certainly wasn’t full congregation of modest mechanics in tb vestibule of which Hay spoke, and yet, wli could tell bow many more were an? ious am troubled on the subject of their eternal wel fare? What a pity it was that those working men who wished to repair to the saDctuar could not have steady work ard full pay II he had had only known all Ibis early in thi morning, he did not know but he might havi hired him at three dollars, though, really was a man to blame for doing his best in thi labor market? “Ye cannot serve God am mammon.” Gracious! he could almost de clare he heard the excited carpenter's voici delivering that text. What had brought tha text into his head just now ?—he had neve thought oi it belore, The deacon rolled aud tossed on his bed and the subject of his conversation with tin carpenter tormented him so he could not sleep. Of one thing he was certain, and thal was that the reform of the church at Pawkir Center was not to be relied on in an extremi ty, and was not hungering and thirsting aftei righteousness an extreme case?—had lie evei really known many suck? If Hay only had means, the problem would afford its own so lution. The good deacon solemnly declared to himself that if Hay could give good securi ty he (the deacon) wouid try to lend him money. But even this (to the deacon) extraordina ry concession was unproductive of sleep.— “He that givetli to the poo. lendetk to the Lord,” There! he could hear that indignant carpenter again. What an unsatisfactory passage that was, to be sure! If it could on ly read the other way—it didn’t seem a bit business like the way it stood. And yet as the deacon questioned himself there in the dark, he was forced to admit (hat he had a very small balance—even of loans—to his credit, in the hands of the Lord except in his usual business manner—as small a loan as would he accepted on as extensive collaterals forsaw!?'1 c?act- °hi whv did people ever thers ai/u *ltnP,e raiment of (heir forefa ous in prfcebt,taemselves in garments griev pat.hs of their feMow^men ? 0' Uo<to iU tbe reflection.1 ‘d3upn!iLfo'*ow everi this P>ous were to give—lend tb’at™ly, suPPose that he enough io dress his e , Ha-V uloney think what a terrible lot of tor c,um'h— take!

Of course it was entirely out of the quesLon-he had only wondered ! w“a‘ 1 w°uul cost—that was all. ! „i,u TTno s'eeP- He wished he hadu’t spoken i about his soul—next time he would i mind his own business. He wished he had'nt employed Hay. He wished the meeting for consideration of the needs of the impenitent had never taken place. “No man can come | to me except the Father which sent me draw him”—he wished he had remembered th; t ! passage and quoted it at the meeting—It was no light matter to interfere with the Al mighty’s plans. “Ble ised are the merciful for they shall ob taiu merey.” Hah I Could that carpenter be in the room, disarranging his train of ! thought with such—such—tantalizing texts ? . They had kept him awake, and at his time of life a restless night was a serious matter. Suppose— Very early the next morning the village ; doctor, returning from a patient’s bedside, met the deacon with a face which suggested : to him (the doctor was pious and imagina ! tive) “Abraham on Mount Moriah.” °The village butcher, mote practical, hailed the good man, and informed him that he was in time for a pood steax, but the deacon shook his head in agony, and passed on. He neared the carpenter’s house, stopped, tottered, and loo ;edorer his should:* as if intending to run; at length he made his way behind the house, where Hay was chopping fire-wood. The carpenter saw him and turned pale—he feared the deacon had tound cheaper labor i and had come to give him warning. “George,” said the deacon, “I've been do ing a heap of thinkin’ ’b ut what we talked of yesterday. I’ve come to say that it you like I'll lend you three hundred dollars for as long as ye'v a mind to, without note, securi ty, or interest, you to spend ez much of it ez ye need to dress ye an’ yer hull fam’ly in Sunday clothes and to put the balance in the Savin’s Bank, at interest, to go on doing the same when necessary. An’ all of ye go to cliuich when ye feel so disposed. An’ ef uo body else's pew door opens, yer always wel come to mine. Aud may the Lord”—the dea.con finished the scutence to himself— “have mercy on my soul.” Then he said aloud: “That's all.” The carpenter at the beginning of the dea con’s speech, had dropped his axe to the im minent danger of one ot his feet. As the dea con continued, the carpenter dropped his head to one side, raised one eyebrow inquir ingly, and awaited the conditions. But when the deacon said “That’s all,” George Hay seizeu toe ueacuii H inmi urn u«tuu, gave it a grasp which brought agonizing tears to its venerable owner, and exclaimed: “Deacon, God's people are reformin’ I” The deacon staggered a litttle—be had not thought of it in that light before. “Deacon, that money’ll do more good than all the prayin’ ye ever done. ’Xcuse me—I must tell Mary,” and the carpenter dashed into the house. Had Mrs. Hay respected the uramatic proprieties, she would have made the deacon a neat speech; but the truth is, she regarded him trom behind the wiudow blind, and wiped her eyes with the corner of - her apron, seeing which, the deacon abruptly started for home, making less use of his cane than he had done in any day for years. It is grievous to relate, but the truth is 1 mighty,—that within a fortnight the good i deacon repented of his generous action at least fifty times. He would die in the poor house if he were so extravagant again. Three hundred dollars was more than a cow-shed— lumber, sbiugles. nails, labor and all—would cost. Snppose Hay should take the money and go west ? Suppose he should take to drinking, and spend it ail for liquor? One suspicion after another tortured the poor man until he grew thin and nervous. But, on the second Sunday, having satisfied liimseif that Hay was in town, sober, the day before, that he bad been to the city and brought back bun dles and that he (the deacon) had seldom been in the street without meeting one of Hay’s children with a paper of hooks and eyes, or a spool of thread, the deacon station • ed himself in one of his own front windows, and brought his spectacles to bear on Hay's door, a little distance off. The first bell had rung, apparently hours before, yet no one ap peared—could it be that be had basely sueak ed to the city at night, and pawned every thing? No—the door opened—there they came. Itcculd’ntbe—yes, it was—well he never imagined Hay and his wife were so fine a looking couple. They came nearer, and the i deacon, forgetting his cane, hobbled liurried i ly to church, entered his pew, and left the 1' door wide open. He waited long, it seemed 1 to him, hut they did not come. He- looked r around impatiently, and there, oh, joy and S wonder! the President of the Pawkiu Sav I ings’ Institution had invitsd the whole family ! into liis pew! Just then the congregation : rose to sing the hymn commencing," “From all that dwell below the skies S Let ihe Creator’s praise arise;” 1 and the deacon in his excitement, distanced the choir, and the organ, and the congrega tion, and almost brought the entire musical sefjdce to a standstill. Tne-dcacon had intended to watch closely - for Hay’s conversion, hut something wonder i ful prevented—it was reported everywhere that the deacon himself had been converted, 1 and all who now saw the deacon fully believ ed the report. He was even heard to say r that, as there seemed to be 6ome doubt as to whether faith and works was the saving vir tue, he intended thereafter to practice both. - He no longer mentioned the poor house as i his prospective dwelling, but is heard to say - that in his Father's house are many man i sions, and that he is laying up his treasure in l heaven, as fast as possible, and Dopes he may I get it all on the way there, before his heart is , called for. At the post office, the tin-shop, and the rum shop, the deacon’s conversion is ! constantly discussed, and the men of all de • grees now express a beliel in the mighty pow er of the Spirit from on high. O’lier money ed men have been smitten and changed, and the pastor of the Pawkiu Center church daily thanks the Lord for such a revival as he nev er heard of before.—Christian Union. ^MCason & Uoadley’s System for Beginners.
