A SONG FOR NEW-YEAR'S EVE.
A yet, friends, a
Stay till the good old
S long companion of
Shakes hands, and
leaves us here.
Oh, stay, oh, stay,
One little hour, and
The year, whose hopes
were high and
Has now no hopes to
Yet one hour more of
jest and song
For his familiar sake.
Oh, stay, oh, stay,
One mirthful hour, and then away.
The kindly year, his liberal bands
Have lavished all his store.
And shall turn from where he stands
Because he gives no more?
O h, stay, oh, stay,
One grateful hour, and then away.
Days brightly came and calmly went
tfThile yet he was our guest
How cheerfully the week was spent 1
How sweet the Seventh day's rest!
Oh, stay, oh, stay,
One golden hour, and then away.
Dear friends were with us, some who sleep
Beneath the coffin-lid
What pleasant memories keep
O all they said and did I
Oh, stay, oh stay,
One tender hour, and then away.
E'en while sing, he smiles his last,
And leaves our sphere behind.
The good old year is with the past,
Oh, he the new as kind I
Oh, stay, oh, stay,
One parting strain, and then away.
A NEW YEAR'S WEDDING.

they were out of the town proper and

crossed a small bridge, and turning

I the comfortable fire-lit, lamp-lit
kitchen Mrs. Rafferty awaited them.
She was a American, a little, thin,

housekeeper. A brisk, quick, weary,
good-hearted little soul, worn out a are

Hanna nodded and extended a plump

A round young figure clothed i a
dress, skirt rather, of bright blue cash-
mere, which was surmounted a snug-
ly-fitting jacket of scarlet flannel ,dark
hair, parted straigntly and brushed
back from a full, fresh-colored girlish
face, a face with thick black brows and
brilliant eyes, and a mouth which, if a
trifle too large, held firm white teeth
and was quite mirthful and risible.
"S'posin' you take Hanna the dance,
William?" suggested Mrs. Rafferty.
"Can't!" (more curtly than courteous-
ly) "I'm engaged," and carried his
fine, erect, handsome young self coolly
away. His father followed him out.
The door remained ajar.
"William, why tcan't take her,

"He's engaged her."
"What!" "He's a-going go" home next sum-

Old Rafferty leaped to his feet. His
wife sank weakly into a chair.
A queer, hard look came into the girl's
face. She did not hesitate, though.

snatched the letter from her. She
sat there white indeed, with panting

Rafferty and his wife perused the brief

finished they turned Hanna. Both
were trembling with excitement
actually speechless. But suddenly old
Rafferty jumped and went spinning
around the kitchen like one possessed.
