OCT IN THE COLD.
With blue cold bands and stockingless feet.
Wandered a child in the cheerless street:
Children were many, who boused and fed,
Lovingly nestlod, dreaming In bed
Caroled their Joy in a land ol bliss,
Without a care or thought of thla;
They were warm with humanity's fold,
But thin little child was out in the cold
Out in the cold!
Bleak blew the wind through the cheerless
Dashing along the merciless street,
All furred and shawls, man, woman and child
Hurried along, for the storm grew wild;
They could not bear the icicle's blast,
Winter so rude on their pathway was east,
Alas! none pitied no one consoled
The little wanderer out in the cold
Out in the cold!
She bad no father, she bad no mother.
Sisters none, and never a brother!
They had passed on the star-world above
She remained here with nothing to love
"Nothing to love!" Oh men did not know
What wealth of Joy that child could bestow,
So they went by and worshipped their gold,
Leaving the little one out in the cold
Out in the cold!
Wandered she on till the shades of night
Veiled the shivering form from sicht:
Then with her hands crossed over her breast,
She prayed to her Father in Heaven for rest.
When hours had fled 'neath the world's dark
Hungered and chilled, she laid herself down;
.uivj uuwu iu rest wmie tue weaitny roueu
In carriages, passed her out in the cold
Out in the cold!
Out in the cold lo! an antral form
Brought her white robes that were rich and
Out In the cold on the sleeping child!
The sainted face of a mother smiled;
A sister pressed on her brow a kiss
lied her 'mid scenes of heavenly bliss;
And angels gathered into their fold
That night the little one out in the cold
Out In the cold!

"Well, Aggie, you want me to tell
you about your Aunt Agues. It will be
hard for you to understand about ber.
because times have changed since she
was little like you. Let rue see it was
twenty years last fall, since she died.
"We lived on a farm in Central New
York, about two miles from a little vil
lage, where we went for groceries and
to meeting, when the roads were good.
Your Aunt Agnes was our youugest
child. She was a strange girl. We
kept a good many men, and there was a
reat deal or work. The boys, that is,
your father and Uncle Giles, were away
at college, and they were costing your
grandfather a sight or money. We had
to be saving: not that we did not have
what was good enough, but we could
not hire a girl, when we had two of our
own. My health was poor. Your grand
father was always scolding me for work
ing so much, instead of making the
girls do it.
"Your Aunt Susan would take hold
and work lively, but Agues had no am
bitiou. She would drag about all day,
as if she were dreaming. All she cared
for was reading. Every time she got a
chance, she would take a book, go off
by herself, and read. She had been to
the district school, and had as good an
education as any one; but she was not
satisfied; she wanted to go away to
school. I don't know what would have
become of her, if we had let her have
her own way.
"After your Aunt Susan married, Ag
nes grew worse. We began to be afraid
she would be an old maid. The summer
she was twenty, Mr. Green came to
preach in our church. I think he made
up his mind to marry Agnes before he
saw ner, tor he took uo notice of ber in
difference, and asked her to be bis wife,
But la! she wouldn't marry him! Then
your grandfather and I got out of pa
tience with ber, but Mr. Green kept on
trying to court her all winter. He was
having a hard time of it. His wife had
just died, and left a little baby, besides
three other children; the oldest wasn't
nine years old, and he had no one to
look after them. He hired a girl, but it
was expensive, and she would not take
care of things. They did have the most
distressed house-keeping I ever saw.
Well, he needed a wife, if ever a man
"One Monday Agnes wore a very long
face. She did not say anything, but I
exw me tears run down her cheeks and
fall into the tub, as she stood washlnjr,
I knew she was mad. I just told her
she ought to be ashamed of herself for
being so ungrateful, when she was hav
ing so much done for her; few mothers
would 6tand what I did; people didn't
expect, when they had girls, that they

du uiu not answer me.
That night I heard a noise. I got
up to see what it was. I looked through
the key-bole of Acnes' door, and there
I saw her in her night-dress, walking

I heard her say. 'O God. let me die '

heard no more from her that nlirht.
"The nextday shelooked awrulglum
At night, when she bad finished iron,
Ing, she cams out where I was sitting,
and said: 'Mother, vou mav tell Mr.
Green that I will marry him as soon as
you use. iou Know l nave never

chance with my brothers to make mv
way in the world. You, for the sake of
a little money, have doomed me to
life of drudgery and isolation, and you

"I told her I knew her wickedness
would bring some awful judgment upon
uer, ana is uia. wen, we sent lor Mr.
tureen, ana told him just how it was.
Agnea was willing to marry him, but
she had a dreadful temper, and he would
have to look out for it. Mr. Green was a
pretty-spoKen man. He said, 'The fai
sex must be indulged in their little
They were married in two weeks,

somest house and lot in the village, and
a great piece of woodland besides. He
said It was worth five thousand dollars
altogether. That was what he paid for
the boys' places. He always said he
would treat his children alike, aud he
"The church couldn't give the minis
ter much money, but we saw that they
had things comfortable. Agnes and the
baby seemed to take to each other right
a way. I was very busy that summer.
I had hired a girl, but she would not do
anything as I had been used to having
It done, so I didn't get down to see Ag
nes more than twice during the sum
mer. I remember some one told me
they thought Mrs. Green looked con
sumptive. I said, 'She always had a
pale look, but she was well aud strong.'
"One night, late in the fall, one of
her neighbors came and woke us and
told us to get Into his wagon as soon as
possible. Agnes was very sick. The
moment I saw her, I knew she was dy
ing. I thought of her unprepared soul,
and I said, 'Agnes, let me send for some
one to pray for your salvation.'
"'Mother,' said she, 'I am almost
gone. I want to see the baby. JLeave
me alone with him for a little while.'
"I took the baby to her and went into
the next room. I saw him put his little
arms around her neck, and pat her
cheek, and try to make her play with
him; but she only hugged him closer
and kissed him again and again. I
went to take him awav she was dead!
The baby cried and clung to her, and
seemed surprised that she did not notice
"It was a terrible blow to your grand
father and me, to have ber die so sud

A mysterious stranger, who had made
a mistake as to the quantity of wine
that was necessary for him the other
day, made his way into the dininc-
room of an up-town club, and ordered a
dozen of oysters, a steak, and a bottle
of Sauterne. The waiter, not kuowine
the intruder, was about to execute the
order, when two or three members of
the club compared notes, and, as no
body knew him, came to the conclu
sion that he was not a member. There
upon the waiter was sent to demand
whether he was one.
"I don't know about any club," re
sponded the mysterious stranger. "I've
ordered a steak and some oysters and a
bottle of Sauterne, aud I mean to have

The members laughed at this good
joke, ana the waiter looked uncomfort
able, but he thereupon urged, "Beg par
don, sir; you must become a member
in the ordidary way before I can serve
you, as you have not been introduced
you must be proposed and balloted for.'
"Well, then," shouted the invader,

The end of the controversy was that
tne too daring intruder had to be ex

nustiea out, tuat it was very bard.
In one of the suburbs of Boston a lady
was passing from the depot through a
piece of woodland to her home the other
day. Suddenly a tramp sprang from
tne nusnes, and seizing her wrist, de
manded her watch and money. The
lady replied, "Let me alone, and you
shall have my money." This the fellow
did, but still menaced her with a heavy
walking-stick. The lady then deliber
ately unfastened her hand-bag, quick
as a flash took out a revolver, and
springing back several paces, leveled it
at the head of the villain. The fellow
