Here he met ngnin his old claa-mnle, Seve

served out was chnrged to them, to swill
their debt of servitude. Severo endured hi
hit while his mother lived; hut when she
died, ho broke away. His situation of rmi
quern, or mounted herd.iuian, gave him u line
start in advance, and he wns filly miles on
the road to freedom before his flight was
announced to the overseer of the Holy Mer

counselling his escape, nml, in his rage, iho
major domo hnmlled the old peon so cruelly
thut he Inid down nn-his mat mid never lull

American went to New Oi leans in thu spring.
At Matauiorus he chanced to encounter Vic

younger days. Victor was about to go up
the river to Laredo, und was charged by hi
friend with uiuny messages to u peon family
to which it turned out Severn was united hy
tho strongest bonds. Ho loved deeply the
young neico of a Laredo peon, Joselii, who
was lice nnd appeared likely lo remain so,
a alio was aciivo, industrious, and o guod
aeomstresa. To cam bur hand in lepiiuuiin
marriage was tint great object of his hie,
nnd to become free himself was such n help
ful nml desirable step, that bo consented
joyfully to aix months servitude, including
also, a season of yellow fever, which ho wus
expected lo stay over nml above his time,
during llie absence of his new master iu tho
I'uiled Blales. Victor, while nt L'liedo, dis
charged punctually his ilmy to his fii. nd,
ond even wrote letters for Joselii, inliii'iuiug
Hevero from tiuio to lime of her steady re

his probation, am) returned in lesa than a

much improved by his residence among

some misfortune, hut Snvrro did not hesitate
to hecomo surely for her debt of .l., nnd

peonied himself any day, but his work was
mainly devoted lo the service of the creditor,
who kept his own open account Willi them,
advancing, while they were nt work for him,

There sittcth a dove so white and fair,
All on tho lily spray,
And she listens how to Jesm Christ,
Tho little children pray.
Lightly she spreads her friendly wing,
And to heaven's g ito hutli iped,
And unto the Father in Heaven she bears
Tho prayers wlibh tho children hnvo said.
And ba.V she comes from henven's gate,
And brings that dove so mild
From the Father in Heaven who hears her apouk,
A blessing on every child.
Then children lift up a pious prayer,
It benrs whatever yon sny,
To that heavenly dove so white and fair.
