The world had gone prosperously with him for a time, but soon promising specula tions failed entirely, and his affairs be came sadly involved. Some hopes of re covery presented themselves, when a fire broke out in the place, his house of business fell a prey to the flames, and almost every article was consumed, and to render the misfortune greater, the in surance had expired the day before. Thornby and his large family were re duced to absolute poverty. Nor was this all; his anxiety and exposure dur ing the fire brought on a fever, and for weeks his wife and daughters hung over him, almost despairing of his life. At length, however, the fever abated, and though he was left weak and helpless as an infant, reason had returned, and nothing was needed for his restoration to health, but good nursing and freedom from mental anxiety. Careful and affectionate nursing was not wanting, but it was impossible to prevent mental uneasiness. His chil dren must be supported, but how T They would share with him in poverty, per haps the disgrace which the involved state of affairs would bring upon him ; and many would heap upon him un merited reproach. There remained but one way by which his fair name could be entirely retained, and on this he at once resolved. The house in which they lived was valuable, and would command a ready and favorable 6ale. It was hard to part with a home he had made so com ? fortable, but there was no alternative. The house was offered for sale, and a purchaser soon found. Every just claim was satislied, and the family removed to a distant part of the country. Here, in a small, neat dwel ling they found themselves in the pos session of manv comforts and in their affection for each other, the mother and children soon found contentment and happiness. But the father's heart was still sad. He felt a want of confidence in himself, and a mistrust in his fellow-creatures. His whole appearance was changcd. His countenance was downcast and sad ; his steps lingering and irresolute, and no one would have recognised the once happy merchant in the ill-dressed and unhappy looking man, who now busied hi.nself in cultivating a small piece of land that sur rounded his little dwelling. His wife sought by every means in her power to arouse his dormant energies. The little property they had saved from the wreck would soon be exhausted, fie was yet in the prime of life; his health was fully restored, why not again go 1 fcrward, and endeavor to regain, at least part of what they had lost ? Surely it was a duty which he owed to himself and children. But her husband shrunk froui again mingling with what he called "a cold, unfeeling world." 44 It will be in vain, Mary," he replied; "I shall lose the little we have left. You can hardly imagine the unfeeling manner in which the unfortunate are treated. Many will help those who seem likely to raise themselves, but very few will ex tend a hand to save those who are com paratively sinking." "This is partly true," said his more hopeful wife ; 44 but I trust not to the extent which you seem to believe. Place more confidence in your fellow men, and above all have more reliance on your Heavenly Father, and you will succeed. Begin at the bottom of the ladder, and seek a situation as a clerk. You are certainly well qualified either for a sales man or accountant, and will, no doubt, obtain a good salary." Mr. Thornby signed deeply. 44 Mv health," said he, 44 will not permit mc to lead the sedentary life of an accountants, as a salesman I fear I should stand little ' chance of success." 44 Not with that sad countenance, in i deed; but strive to recover your former cheerful temperament, and all will so well." 44 For your sake, Mary, and that of my children I will make the attempt; but I feel sure that it will fail." Advertisements were put in the papers, stating his capabilities, and want of a - situation ; but these failing to call forth ? any applications, he resolved to go him self and seek for employment. He left | home for the city with the same sad countenance, downcast look, and slow ' and measured step. ! His wife, who had watched him anx iously until he was out of sight, turned sorrowfully from the window, and said . to her eldest daughter, 44 It is all in vain, ? Sarah; your poor father will never suc ; ceed until he can learn to look up, not only naturally but spiritually." After some expressions of mutual confidence | and affection, the excellent mother and t daughter determined upon two things; ; first, to commend the husband and father . to the kind protection of Heaven; and r next to commence together, if possible, the keeping of a small school. This lat ter plan^ however, they determined to submit to the father on his return. As Thornby approached the crowded 1 city, he felt more and more oppressed by | the doubts and fears which he had urged r in the conversation with his wife. 1 The tirst place at which he called was i the office of a commission agent, who 1 had advertised for a person having qual 1 ifications which William Thornby felt an : undoubted assurance that he possessed. On stating his business, a young clerk requested hia to be seated ; at the same ? time surveying him with a contemptuous air. Half an hour passed, and the em ployer entered. Thornry's uamc and 1 application were laid before him. H? mood for a moment quietly observing him, and without waiiing to hear tlu qualification he was about to urge, said quietly,41 You will not answer my pur pose, sir." The applicant turned away without remonstrance, and left the office, saying to himself, "Just as I expected. I have every qualification he required in Ins advertisement; but my appearance does not suit him, and that is enough." The next trial was at a large wholesale dry goods establishment. The refusal was equally decisive as the other; and as he turned to leave the store, he heard the employer remark to the head clerk, "I make it a rule never to employ * person who looks as if he was unfortunate. Eve rything about that man shows that he is going down hill." "And wherefore/' mentally added poor Thorn by, "you will give him a push." lie half resolved not to try again, but the thought of those de fending on him urged another trial. \V ith desperate determination he resolved to go to every warehouse in the street through which he was passing. But he was unsuccessful, and with every failure he bccame more and more depressed till his anxious countenance could not fail to excite the observation of those around him. As he turned from the last shop, he was accosted by a benevolent looking old gentleman in the garb of a Quaker, who exc.aimed in a friendly tone of inquiry ; "booking for a situation, friend ?" "Yes, air," was the reply; "can you aid me in my search ?" "Not directly, but I can give thee a little advice, which, if rightly acted upon, will finally help thee to at tain what thee desires." "I shall be grateful for vour advice." "It ic this? Look Up." At these words Thornby rai-ed his eyes from the ground, supposing it to be a command to look at his adviser; but to his surprise the old gentleman had al ready turned, and was walking rapidly away in an opposite direction. "Some insane person " Thornby mut tered; "I am in no humor for his folly." Then sorrowfully he turned towards his cwn home, quite convinced of the use lessness of further search. His wife, not much surprised at his failure, still endeavored to cheer him. and 'ke p??n cf keeping a school. With some difficulty they obtained his sanction to what he considered as an al most absurd undertaking. Circulars were immediately printed I and circulated, and Sarah and her mother j called unon many families in their imme diate neighborhood, and made known j their intentions. Their ladv-like and . pleasing appearance, excited much inter j est, and they soon secured a sufficient number of pupils to cncoura^e them in a | beginning. The school rapidly increased j and before the end of the first term they : had more applicants than they could ad I 5'^' m,^an^ families were anxious that j Mrs. ihornby should receive their daugh * ters as boarders; this oceasioncd an ex s tension of their plan. A larger anj more ? convenient house was taken, and arrange ments made for the accoinmodation^of boarders, and also for the reception of a larger number of day scholars. Mr. Thornby viewed with wonder the success of his wife and daughter. Why was it that he alone should be rejected because he was unfortunate ? How was it that they had raised so manv kind friends around them, eager and able to assist them. In what did the difference1 consist. The words of the Quaker often came to his mind, and though he had at first regarded them as mere expessions of in sanity, he now began to suspect that they in reality contained tlio advice which the old gentleman had said, if aightly followed, would insure him suc cess. "Look Ip!" Surely, man formed in the image of his Maker, should not, like the beast thnt peris'-eth, cast his eyes upon the earth ! Even when bowed down by misfortunes, he should strive to look up to the light, which may yet illumine his path. These thoughts had crowded forcibly upon Thornby's mind, and he was beginning to act in accord ance with them, when his daughter bounded joyously into the garden, where her father was busied with some vines, and told her father that he should smile upon her cheerfully as he used to do, for that she had good news to tell him. " You deserve to be smiled upon, in deed, my child," said he, gazing fondly on her animated countenance; '? but what news have you for me ?" " One of the young ladies who attend ed our school, asked me to-day if my father was in want of a situation as clerk ; and when I answered in the affir mative, she said her uncle requested you to call at his office to-morrow morning. Here is the address," Sarah continued] handing her father a slip of paper. " Well, there may be something yet in store for me, Sarah," 44 Indeed there may, dear father. Only think how well our school is succeeding. The income from that alone would efford us comfortable support. Our Heavenly Father is always near to help us in the hour of need." The heart of the strong man was bowed down, and his voice trembled with emo tion. Tears of real sympathy stood in the eyes of his daughter, as she whis pered? 44 Your heart will no longer be sad, dear father, you will smile on us once more." 44 My child," said he,44 the dark shad ow has long been on me ; but with the help of God. I will no longer be cast down. Even if the new opening should prove delusive, I will not be discouraged; 1 will now look up." With a cheerful countenance and a step that fell sweetly on the ears of his wife, bringing to her remembrance the days gone by, he descended to breakfast the next morning, and at an early hour was on his way to the city. As ho en tered the office answering to the address given him by his daughter, he was met by the same benevolent old"Quaker whe had proffered his advice on a former oc casion. ' y> ell, friend/ he exclaimed, extend ing his band, *' I *m glad that tho't hast followed my tdvice ?nd learned to look up. I have a situation now at my com mand where thee can obtain a good sal ary, and without working harder than is fitting thy time of life."' The best remedy for a man who is go ing down hill is to look up. When earthly hopes fail there is still hope in Heaven.
