BOX No. 4.
BY 11KI.1A i>KXlSii.V.
Slowly anil Mully I iva I keil down thu lillie
When the evening MI.I was hov,
V Following the grass grown foul pat li
Which leil to the village I if.i nv.
My heart le t ti st runge ?iuvlajiling,
1 coiilil nut divine wherefore,
Tor lo the pust-otlicc I "!k" e"ing,
To peep into " Mux Su. 1."
The village was never MI lonely,
The streets were nevei m still,
Thc brook wu? never >o sluggish,
Ami never so lazy the milt.
Un the purement I haite.l u moment.
Then passed through the hiitl-opcn door,
And with step neither linn nor steady
Walked up to Uox No. I.
I tupped on thc glass pane slightly ;
The post-master gave nie the mail :
lie a,iokc to me cheer.ly, kindly,
Anu us lied wiiai ina te me so pale.
One thin, yellow letter he gave mc,
Tiiis only, ami nothing more;
1 knew 'twas tor nie, for 1 saw it
While it lay in ?ox No. 1.
I took it with limul that trembled,
My heart heat with joy nilli with lear,
? Yet 1 lrie>l to wulk away cuiiuly,
And ehoeked down the rising tear.
A stranger hain) lui.I iinlorscd it ;
My heart grew sickly ami sore ;
Oh, why was it sent lo me then ?
Why came it tu Box No. l ?
My Charlie had been won tilled in hattie,
A iiiuuiie-liw'li in his solo,
And cohinidcs had tender.y nursed him,
Lise he ere this had died.
But now JU the hospitul lonely,
He knew that los war.are was o'er
He knew this would he tho but letter
He should send lo llox No. -I.
Thc papers hud said " severely,"
But 1 had hoped they might I?: wrong,
And so my pour henri touk comfort,
Though tue tiny s were dreary and long,
But now his farewell caine to me,
lu his loving language of yore,
In the fervent, tear-stauied letter
Winch came to Box No. -1,
1 neither screamed nor fainted,
But walked thrungli the lane as before,
And in my lone walk homeward
That letter 1 rend o'er und o'er,
I knew tba; I now was u willow,
Though his iiAilie 1 never bore.
But he had saul I should in the letter?
Which had come to Box No. 4.
A year have l bceu a widow,
Though the weeds 1 cannot wear,
3ut my heart is draped in mourning
And the grief lies bidden there.
And sometimes that tear-stained letter
I bring out and read once more
That letter which made inc a widow,
Which came to llox No. 4.
MATINS.
Tor tho dear love that kept us through thc night,
And gave our senses to sleep's gentle sway j

One prayer-one only-"Let thy will he done."

her a .-eat within sight of thc lire, icy husband
still looking on in amazement.
Well he might, for thc face was no ordinary
one, though il was (ur fl om' beautiful. Til?
brown hair escaped front lier wet, unshapely
hood, in masses of thick, neglected curl-, anti
tippled where il lay along lier d.ik forehead in
natural waves ihut no chirippling could imitate.
A look of s .11' ung seemed on those small tea
lures. She munt have been very intimate with
sorrow ur oppression that all thc alchemy ot
youth could not overe?me.

night ?" I us ki t! her.
.. Oh, I don't know, mu'nm.eKccpi I thought

Abeu it was d.likest, it I would only pray and

" Who was Miss Virginia':" asked my hus
band.
" She was my dcHr sweet mistress, sir ! ibu
deatesi and sweetest thai ever lived. Her father
was Dr. Woodward, of Macon, and he owned
me. My dear Miss Virgin!*! she was as much
un angel then iii she is now. Oh, dour Miss
Virginia ! "
She sat with clasped hands looking into thc
tin, and over her swarthy checks the tear? were
running like nun. Shu looked such a mite, and
so desolate !
" llcic is some supper for you," said I. You
must bc hungry; cat, and after ward? yuu shall
tell us how you cone herc."
"Oh, I haven't tasted u thing to-day I " she
cried, wiping the tears that blurred her vision.
.' Isn't that nice? Oh. madam, you arc so kind
to me, and you don't know anything about
me."
" You don't look ns if you had been long
enough in thc world to do much mischief." said
my liUfbund, who is very much inclined, you
know, to ?i'c things in a comical light."
"I'm twelve," she replied gravely; "but I
am smnll o? my age. Miss Virginia always
called mc fifi ile Nelly/'
..Theil Nelly is your name > "
" Yes, ma'am, my name is Nelly Woodward.
I can tew, and sweep, and knit ..omu, I can
make a bcd beautifully - Miss Virginia taught
mc, because she said I wai tilweys to ?my with
her, and wait upon her-yet she died, I've

" Mi-s Virginia i- doini. I luke it ? "
" U, sii," und the piteous look caine huck in

grandmother nod ll.trry, her little hrother. and

steady .it every thing, wherever she turned tin :n,
