FRIDAY -JULY 27, 1877.
Though many ills may hamper life
When fortune turns capricious.
The great but nerve ue for the strife.
The small ones make us vicious.
Fierce Briefs are soon outstripped by one
Who through existence scurries;
It's harder for a race to run
With nimble "little worries."
You run to catch and losc-a train,
Vi nat tataiiest or nurnesj,
Your newest hat encounters rain
Life's rull of "little -worries."
From day to day some silly things
Upset you altogether;
There's naught so soon convulsion brln;
As tickling with a leather.
'Gainst minor evils let him pray
Who fortune's lavor curries
For one that big misfortunes slay,
Ten die of "little worries."
BY THE AUTHOR OF "TIIK DEBWEST DIAMONDS."
Mrs. Delalield looked out of the win

scissors fell from her hand.

Maudie was a cripple. AH her brief
life had been spent in that low easv-
chair, save when Tom rolled her under
the maples, in her small wagon, for her
morning airing, sue loolseU up from

I make it a point never to break an es

served, Mrs. Delafield. Be punctual
with your'tenantsand your tenants will
learn to be punctual with you. That's
a motto of mine, and I find it works ad
mirably, Mrs. Delafield."
Mrs. Delafield sat quite composed
not a feature of her face betraying the
nutter at ner uearc.
"Your rent comes due again to-day,
Mrs. Delafield." proceeded the landlord,
taking out note-book and pencil. "Last
month, owing to your extreme illness
contrary to my fixed principles, I suf-

Mrs. Delafield caught her breath, and
pressed ber hand bard upon the table.
She was too proud to betray herself by
a single tremor.
"Beally, Mr. Brompton, I wish
could. But, owing to my illness, I've
done very little sewing. The few bills
due me I tried to collect yesterday, and
failed. However, I shall get the money
soon, and there'll be enough to pay the
rent. If you'll have the kindness to
wait a week or two longer, Mr. Bromp
Mr. Brompton interrupted with
smile, and the smile was uglier than a
irown would have been.
"I could wait, Mrs. Delafield. Oh!

Her soft eyes flashed; her voice rang
like a bugle; but the instant the door
was closed, she sunk down by Maudie's
"Oh, Maudie! Poor little Maudie!
What shall we do?"
The child put aside her silks, and laid
ner soft cheek against her mother's.
Tom's band was on the latch; and
feeling that ber tears would not be
forced back, Mrs. Delafield jumped up,
and rushed into the next room, closing
tue noor alter ner.
"Hush, Tom!" said Maudie, as he
came whistling in, with his satchel on
his shoulder. "Poor mamma's in great

and a fellow hungry enough to nibble

Maudie's soft eyes looked up at him
full of tears.
"0! Tom, the landlord's been here
and he talked terribly to poor mamma "
"Did he? Wish I'd been at home."
"Hush, Tom ! What could you have
done? What can any of us do now?
We're to go out of the cottage to-mor
"What? Why, we carit go. The
snow will be a foot deep by morning.
'Twould be the death of vou. Maudie.
Now, I shouldn't mind it one bit; but

thought of. I must prevent it some-
Maudie's eyes brightened. Tom was
the hero of her lonely life.
"What shall we do, Tom ?" she asked
"Can't tell. Let me think a bit," he
answered, seating himself, boy fashion,
astride a chair. "If there was anything
that could be sold, now; but poor
mamma nas let everytning go, to Keep
us in bread and butter. Dear me! I
wish I was a man, or mamma would
let me leave school and co to work."
"Tom, I've a few bits of needle-work
that might be sold."
"Oh! bother, Maudie! Girl's work
never amounts to anything. What help
would tbat be?"
Maudie answered not a word, but her
sensitive lip quivered. Tom saw, and
reddened to the rooteof hiscurliug hair.
"There, Maudie, I didn't mean that.
I was vexed, and spoke without think
ing. I'm ashamed of myself. You help
us ever so much, with your dear, pa
tient little fingers."
Maudie's brown eyes shone like gold
stone. "I've hit it!" suddenly cried Tom.
"I'll sell that box of instruments tbat
belonged to papa. I don't like to; but
if ever I'm a surgeon, I'll manage to get
more. I'll do it."
-"Will mamma like it, Tom?" said
Maudie, doubtfully. "She never would
part with anything that belonged to
"I know." And Tom's firm month,
so like his father's, quivered slightly.
-uuiane'll have to llKe it, child. There's
no help for it. I won't see you turned
out of doors. I'm going, Maudie. I'll
take the box down to Doflrafield's, and
see what X can do. Don't breathe a
word to mamma until I come back."
Meantime, Mrs. Delafield. in the other
room, was wearily getting her few ef
fects together, in order for their sudden
removal. A great many empty caskets
passed through her bands. One box
bad held laces, another jewels, another
rare linens; all were empty. The con
tents bad gone for daily bread, as Tom
had said. She was looking with a sort
of vague hope, if there was anything
left to sell.
At the very bottom of one trunk she
came upon a coat which had belonged
to tier nusoanu, worn and familiar in
look, a handkerchief in one pocket, a
letter in another. She put it back with
a sudden cry of pain.
un i can't, I can't! Heaven help
me!" she cried, and burying her face in
her hands, burst into tears.
Her husband had been Surzeon John
Delafield, of the United States service:
and, for the first two years after their
marriage, sne nad gone with him over
seas, and into many a foreign land.
Such happy years they were ! But after
tbat Maudie was so fragile that she was
compelled to remain at home. Her
nusoand went alone, and from one voy
age he never returned. There had been
a succession of great gales at sea, and

his living by buying up odds and ends

Mere he ottered the box of surtrical
instruments ior sale, and received
paltry offer for them.
"Only that? Why, they're worth
five times as much," cried Tom, indig
nantly. "Twenty times as much would better
express it," put in a stranger who stood
looking on. "Hoy, what are you sell

Tom faced about like a lion, his hand

hard at the bronzed face. The tender,
