The sword ot a terrlble suspense was ouiv
erlngover the liouseliold of Deacon Caiu
eron and lils wlfo. In tlie small white cur
talned charabor over the slttlng-room thelr
only daughter, Agnes, lay between llfe and
death. The doetor gave thera little reason
to hope that the feeble spark whlch was
flickering and nearly ready to expite could
agaln be kindled. Kor days nnd weeka all
that lovo and sklll and tender nursing could
do had been done, to win back the health of
the fever-stricken girl ; but so far lt secmed
in vain. Her mother and brothcrs were
tlrelesf in thelr watching and dcvotion, and
an arrest, in the last few days, had been
lald on overythlug except the most neees
sary work, whlle they waited, in that
soleran hush whlch ls less of hope than of
despair, for what the next hour tuight briug
to pass. llouse, fields, busineis, life were
all overhung and clouded by the mystery
whlch always hoveis about tlie bedsldes of
the departing, even when the prospect 1s
bright wlth ttust in liim who aaya : " I am
he that livetli and was dead, and bchold I I
am alive forevermore."
Agnea waa the deacon's darling. Stern
and grim to others, ho had Invariably been
gentle and indulgent to her. lu her baby
Fiood lt had been his delight to have her
nestle against her fatlier's broad breast and
play wlth his long beard, or fall asleep in
Iils arrns. As a chlld her seat at the table
had been next to hia, and her placo in the
pew by his side. As sho grew inlo fair
womanhood, she had becomo his conipanion
and friend and almost his aecoud self. Xow
that his eyes were beginning to fail and his
eara to grow deaf infirmities of adrancing
age which ho resented, yet was coinpelled
to acknowledge it was Agnes who read to
liim, and talked to liim, in her clear voice,
never loud, but distinct nnd pure in its
utterance, so that every syllable was like a
silver coin for flnisli. The deacon lovcd his
daughter as he loved no ono else in the world.
Didhe love her best? He supposedeoj
and still there was a doubt of lt in tho
minds of his friends. Deacon Cameron had
another idol, and that was money. IIo
bugged it closely and worshlped it lavishly.
f t cost liim bitter paln to part with it, uu
less it were in some way which he knew
wonld return it in kind and increased.
Honest, just, defrauding none, he was scrimp
ing and niggardly in expenditure for his
family ; nor could he bring hlmself to part
with an acre of ground, nor the price of a
portionof hiscrops, to nid tlie poor, to assiat
the church, or to further mlssioii work. His
children had been stinted in their education,
deprived of opportunities and privileges for
which they longed, and forced to livo nar
row, contracted lives under the old roof,
where raged raany a storru of passion that
only God and inothcr knew anythlDg about.
lt was a wintor's morning, but aoft and
raild as spring, with blue skies, undimined
by a cloud, and gentle south winds stirring
in the leafless branches. The physiciau
had told the father that there was little
probability that Agnes could recorer, and
that the issue would ere long be decided.
With pale face nnd haggard eyes he left the
house, and wandered past his ample barns,
through the great orchard aud the vineyard,
and orer tho wide meadows that wero his
pride. The man's soul was desolate. lle
felt as though a liurricane had goneoyer
liim, sweeping hini bare of what tlie good
years had given. The cry of his heart was :
" Ix)rd, take the rcst I take all, but leave me
Agnes I " For tho first time in his experi
ence his wealth was a matter of utter iuilif.
ference to liim. IIo walked 011 lookiug
strangely older than ever before, and the
bowed head, shrunken stature and totteriug
feet were curiously uulike the self-assertlve,
arrogant mau, whose very gait was usually
the unconscious expression of a will that
would have its way, encounter what opposi
tion it tnight.
There was a great spreading oak whlch
stood on tlie edge of his land, shadowing
equally hts farm and that of his nearest
neighbor, Ifarmon .Murray. The Murrajs
were the opposite to the Camerons. Gay,
light-bearted, spending money lavishly, send
ing their boys oil to college and the girls to
the city echools, buying books, music and
pictures, fllling tlie house with guests at
mid-summer aud in the holldavs. Deacon
Cameron could not help havitig private
doubta as to the Christianity of tho .Mur
rajs. Though llarmon Murray was a lib
eral subscriber to every good cause, and a
regular attendant on the services of the
church, he was in the deacon's prejudiced
eyes, a heathen man and a publican. lt haa
been an aggravatlon of his grief that the
gioom ot 111s nouse naa been simreci 111 nis
neiirhbor's. Ksneciallr had he chafed and
ntrugglod against the knowledge that one
member of the family that was so antago
nistic to bis owu cared for Agnes with a
love deeper than that of kindred. The dea
con, though a strong man, was selfish. Ile
would have looked with averslon on any
man who mlght have desired to win the
affection of his child ; for he meant to keep
her as his own particular treasure if he could.
llut that Kdgar .Murray should aspire to her
nana, ana inat, even timiuiy anu alar 011,
Agnes should venture to recard htm as her
future lord, had awakened In liim a resist
ance as violent as it was stubborn. Till
now he had been flercely angry when three
or four times a day the young man had
presented himself to inqulre for Agnes or
to bring her fruit or llowers. He had been
indignaut at his wife, because she had
accepted Alrs. Jlurray's help in caring for
uie BicE one ; nor couiu ne lorgive ner ignor
ing his displeasure and sending to the .Mur
rajs for aid in thls emergency.
llut now ho was in extremitv. He stacr-
gercd to a seat beneath the oak, the very
seai wuere j.ugar anu Agnes nau been ac
customed to rest after their occaaional saun
terings together by the creek or along the
einbowered lanes, and his gray head went
down upon his hands. Illswhole heart was
concentrated in a vehement, worldless prayer,
wmcn was lam to beat agatnst the Al
miEhty's throue. No feeline of God's na-
ternity entered his mind at the Intense mo
ment. Xo remembrance of Christ as the
great High 1'riest, who pleads for the chil-
uren 01 men witu a uroiuer a tender com
prehension of their wants. No thought of
the Holy Spirit, with its sacred intluence
came to hllil. as. shaken. temnest-tossed. and
almost heart-broken, he crled to God, the
strong One, who could hear him. if he
would. The God of the deacon's imaglna-
ituu was u uespoi, uut a aespoi wno coulu
be gracious. llelieving in aud acceptiug all
the doctriues of his church as he understood
iuem, ue prayeu, as a aaxon mlght have
iirayed to J'hor, as a Itoman to Jupitor or a
Iindoo to Vishu, that his child inltMit be
spared. Sinklng to his knees, in the agouy
vi uis uuvuiceu suppucaiiou, iiiq cry 01 Ms
eoul broke lortn Into speech.

Tho shade of hope was not an hallucina-
tion. Very slowly, very Iremulously, almost
imperccptiuly, the young girl passed into
the several starrea of convalescence. So

that God is strivinc wlth the deacon.
There is good in him, f am surc. I tbink
he is not at peace wlth God or with hlmself
just now. He knows he Is in the wrong
about Agnes, and be ls, therelore, not com
fortable. l'erhaps, dear, we have not praycd
for him as we ought."
1 he platn fact was that the deacon was
xccedinclv uncomfortablein his trind. He
had offered a genuiuo prayer and had
pledged an honest vow, fully meanlng to
Keep his word, whlle ln his heart naa been
a vairue idea of nronltlatlon. as he knelt be
neath the oak. When Agnes had first begun
to grow stroiiger, his resolution had been
firra to f ulfil hts word ; but as she had crept
onward to health, it had loosened its bold
upon him. Could a miracle have been per
formed. and the maiden have ariseu from
her couch, at one triumphant bound, from
dealb to life, he would have been awed and
overwheltned and in haste to mako good his
word to the Almighty. The comparatlve
slowness of her restoration had given time
to his nature to assert itseif, and ho was
really moro ill-terapered, cross-grained and
churlish than he had been before. Even to
Acnes he was sometlmes harsh ; the more
so that, under her soft exterior aud win
some ways, the slender girl had an uuderly
ing subaoll of granlte, not unlike his own
character and far firmer than the fabric of
which her gentle mother was made.
Atrnes loved her father, but she loved her
friend too. If Kdgar were prohibited from
visiting her at her own hearth, she was not
ashamed to meet him opeuly under the sky;
to walk with him to the cholr rehearsals,
and to go riding with his sister, white ho
held tho reins and swift horses, the admlra
tion of the country, trottcd stnoothly up hlll
aud down vale and over the bard beautlful
floor-like roads which awept around tnoun
tain sides, skirted limpid streams, and in
tersected the thriving villages which dotted
that iwrtion of the stato. Had any other
member of the family thus dared his dis
pleasure, the deacon would have met tliem
with prohibition and threatenlng; but it
was too late to begin thls course with
Atrnes, whom he did not wish to drive into
entire estrangemeut. So the year wore on,
darkling and sorrowful in the Cameron
household, though outwardly all thlngs pros
pered and whatever the deacon touched
turned to gold.
His main trouble was with his bible.
Turn where he would, the verses familiar
from his childhood mocked him. The word
vow seemed to stare at him from every page.
lt was mvid who sald : " buall 1 oller to
the Lord sacrifices of that which hath cost
me nothlng V" And David had always been
his favorite character. llut they all paid
Lven JeDhthah. whose rash and sweenine
pledge to tho deity had involvedthe otlerlng
of his only daughter in a dark and mysteri
ous dooin, had not shrunk from the terrible
exactiou. Saul, in a moment of haste, had
condemncd a possible oiTemler to death;
and Io I lt proved to be Jonathan who must
meet the bolt of faith, and only the majestlc
protest of the uuited natiou had availed to
save him, The Dible was ati armory which
bristled with weapons turned constanlly
against the deacon's conscience. And hile
he sat at tho head of his table, silent, cou-
strained, and gloomy, imposing an unwhole
some and irritatiug repression 011 wife and
children, a liery battle was raging wlthlii
him. IIo trrew to dread Airues' sweet. cnm-
posed face, where the patienco that could
walt luclelmitely, and hold its own to the
last, was already stamped with a Madonna
like dignity. Often, as he saw Kdgar Mur
ray in church, he felt that hewas unreason
able in opposlng his sult. There could be
no valid objection to a pure, steady, well
educated aud bonorable youug man who
loved his daughter, and whose love she
returned. iheobstlnate antagonism 01 bis
dislike had no foundation which could be
sustained by arguments.
Days wore on. IMonUis and seasons
waned. The apple-trees blossomed, ripened
and were shorn of their fruit. Successive
hatvests were reaped. And theu the tide
of good fortune turned, and the deacon had
a new experience. Ho lost money. Ap
parently stable investtnents collapsed. His
eldest soii went to a distaut state. A horse
of whlch he was proud was carelesslv tlod,
and lamed in consequcnce. A favorite Al-
derney slckened and died. llie barn took
fire and was consumed. Xotio of tbe losses,
so far, were crushing but the aggregate
bore heavily on the deacon and made him
very sad. As he sat In his arm-chair or fol
lowed the plow, he felt that tbe warfare of
the Almighty had assumed a tangible form,
and that his arrows were beiug aimed for
One sorrowful day there came a ereater
loss. Tho hand of paralysis was laid upon
the meek aud ever submisslve wife, and she
lay for hours in that death-iu-life which is
so horrible and so inscrutable. Now was the
cjp of calamity full and running over.
Aever a uemonsiraiive nor a very loving
husband, the deacon bad felt a true respect
and a coniplacent pruprietary affection for
the woinan who bad given herself in the
radlant bloom of her girlhood, when she bad
chosen him from mauy suitors. Always
had she been a faithtul wife, diligent, frugal,
obedient to his wishes. When she passed
soflly away, amld the sobs of her children,
he shed no tears ; but God's lightning had,
nevertheless, smitten bis soul. When she
lay, queenly, in silent state, in the house
where she had been chlef servant rather
than mistress, he sat for hours in the room,
llving over long years and Bufferlng poignant
remone which none knowing the man would
have imaglned possible. When ho followed
tho bearse to the family bt where the Cam
erons bad been hurled for ceneratlons. he
was bowed under an angulsh as deep as it
was uuspeaKauie. Agnes anu ner uanu
into his : but he scarcely felt the prossure,
though he suffered her to lead him home
like a little child, alter the eartb had been
packed upon the colha.
A few days crept on interminably long
in the abode of mournlng and ono nlght
the family were gatliered for worship. The
deacon took the llible, and slowly turned
the leaves until he came to the sixtv-slxth
psalm. 111 a voice low ana aeep with emo-

own InleresLi. If the drlnk hahlt could be
suppresned, tho twenty-flve mllllon dollara

cohollo beverngej) would bo dlitrlbuted
through tho variom channels of the legltl
mata trade, and every btislness man would be
corrcspondingly benefited by Increased saloa.
When the appetlte la well flxed upon a
liquor dnnker, and his means becomo con
tracted, honest dealers in the neccssaries of
life are the first to feel the loss of his cus
Uim. It ls cash down at the saloon, and, as
drlnk must bo had, the liquor-dealer gets
the cash, whllo the batcher, bakor, clothier,
hatter, shoe-dealer, and other legttlmate
shop-keepers must glve credlt for thelr com
modities or not Bcll at all, to a once good
customer. For years temperance lecturers
and wrlters havo been trylng to Impress
business meu wlth the magnitude of the
loss they sustaln through the drlnk hablt,
and we hope the time ls not far dlstant
when a new force will aptiear in the temper

A Driinkard's Farm.
Often and often, whlle riding through llie
country, have we passed f arrns whose hlstory
we could read at a glance. The dooryard
fence had disappeared burnt up in the
shlftlessness born of drlnk. The house was
unpainted and batteredj broken panes of
glass were stopped wlth rags or old hats ;
the chlmuey stood in a tottering attitude;
the doors awung ln a creaking fashlon on
one hinge; the steps were unsteady, like
their owuerj everythlng was dilapidated,
decaylng, untldy, cheerless. A slngle look
showed that its owner traded too much at
one shop the nitn shop. The Bplrit of
thrift had been killed by tho spirit of the
sttll. Fresh palnt, iraprovements, good
clieer and beauty for the home all had
gone down tho farmer's throat. Outsido
matters were the same. The barnyards
were wretched stlos j the doors were ou, the
roofs leaky, the gates down, the carts crazy,
the tools broken, llie fodder scarce, and the
stock poor and wrecked. Neglect, cruelty,
wastefulness, ruin all had come from drlnk.
The farm showed the trail of tho ssme
serpent. The straggling and tumblod
stono walls, the rickety fences, the weed
grown field, the pparse and half-headed
crops, the dying orchard, all said to the
passer-by: " Whlskey dld it." Uriuk had
given tho plaster of a mortgage instead of a
coatlng of fertilizera, sloth mstead of labor,
unthrnt in the place ot care, and aeraorai
izatlou in lieu of svstem. The farm was
drink-blichted, and advertised lts conditlon
as plainly as its owner did when ho came
reeling tiome irom town. uae 01 ino mosi
impressive temperance lectures, for young
tarmers especiauy, is a goou iook ai a utuuk
ard's farm. Selected.
"For Old Tlmc's Sakc."
The day before Thankigiving, some years
ago, a Alrs. raulkner ln JNorwicti, uonnectl
cut, received word that her long-absent son
would be home to Thanksgiving, and her
mind was nlled with the thought, "Aly
boy'a coining home." Thanksgiving eve the
boy cot off the traln, and as it was night,
aud he wanted to bo a little late so as to
surprise the old lady, he stepped luto Solo-
man t'arson s saloon, down by ine brldge.
Thero he met hisold friends. " Why, Ilarry,
how d'yo do V 1'm glad to see you. Come
and let? hava sotncthiug lor old times' fake.
" No, I don't care for anythlng, thank you."

On a shutter, aud covered by a buffalo robe,
they bore the body to the mothpr, and Solo
mon l'arsons was there, The mother turned
and sald ; " boloiuou I'arsons, you have sold
my boy liquor, and bis death lies at your
door." I'arsons mumbled somethlng about
ueing a harsh, hard judgment, but he real
ized that the woinan told tlio truth.
A young man sald to us some time ago
that if the liquor traflic was prohibited the
government would lose lts largest sourca of
revenue. ve remarKed, lt doprnds alto
gether upon what government you mean ;
lf you mean the government of the devil,
we quite agree with you, but if you tueau
our natlonal governineut we eutlrely dlsseut.
The rumsellers rob the government of the
largest amount of tax imposed ; it ls indeed
a question whether twenty per cent of the
tax is collected. llut aside from all this, is
it not a dUgrace to us as a nation to accept
revenue lroru llcensed crimer ltisiiKoa
father sellimr his children to shame and siu
Accepling the revenue that comes from this
crime of crimes is like a man renting his
farm for 810 a year when he knows his
tenantwlll rob It of 81000 a year. Wi
liceuse a rum mlll for S'iO a vear. when we
know that the rura mlll lmpoverishes the
community ?&uuu ln money, leaving au
social, political and moral conslderatious out
ot the question.
Tempcraiico ln Kcir Jcrsoy
The temperance people of New Jersey
seem bound to weed out the rumsellers if
possible, and it looks as if their eflorU
would be partially successfui. The way in
which they propose to go to work is very
slmple. The excise laws of New Jersey
provide that eacu person mamng appuca

mlsslon the signatures ot twelve freeholders
of the townshlp In which be wishes to carry
on business. The same name shall not ap
pear upon the applications of any two per
sous seeklng a licenso to sell in the same
town. In this way the proposltion of retail
llquor dealers was luteuded to be reslralneu.
Thls clause has been overlooked or Iguored
for some time, so that it is said there areiu
some townships and clties more than one
dealer to every twelve voters. All appli-
cants who have siguers whose natnes appear
uiwn any other appucatiou will be cnai.
A Hnrd Illt.
An Indlana pajrar makes the following
hard hit in regard to some voters t " Thera
were a class of professod Cbrlstlans who, on
the morulng of the late electlon, said the
l)ta s 1'rayer, and then went to tne tiolls
and voted for the llquor trallh. They
piayed 'Thy klngdoin come.' They prayed
'Ttiv will bo doue,' but voted lt should not
be doue. They prayed ' I.ead us not luto
teinptation,' but votod for tbe world's great
est tempter. They prayed ' Dellver us frotu
cvil,' but voted for the maintenance of the
greatest evil that ever cursed the eartb.
They prayed (!od to do certln things for
them, and voted against lils doing them
They prayed like Chrlstlans, they voted
like slnners. llut If Ciod'u sign-boards are
correct, they are on the wrong road."

I h.tven't been able to wrlts anythlng for
some time. I don't mean that there hu
been nnytliincr the matter with my flngers
80 that 1 couldn't hold a pen, but I haren't
had the heart to wrlte of my troubles. Ile
aides, I have been locked up for a whole
week in the spare bedroom on bread and
water, aud jmt a little hash or somethlng
like that, except when Sae nsed to mug
gle in cake anu pie and eucli thlngf, and I
haven't had any psnanlnk. Iwaagolngto
write a novel whlle I was locked up by
pricking my flnger and wrlting in blood
wlth a pln on my shltt ; but yoa can't write
hardly anythlng that way, and I don't be
lieve all thoae stories ot conspirators who
wrote dreadful promlses to do all sorta of
thlngs ln their blood. lUfdre I could write
two little words my finger stopped bleeding,
and I wasn't golng to keep on pricking my
self every few minutea; boiidea, lt won't uo
to U9e all your blood up that way. There
was once a boy who cut hlmself awful in
the leg with a knite, and he bled to death
for fivu or slz hours, and when he got
through he wasn't any thicker than a news
paper, and rattled when his friends picked
him up just like the morning paper
does when father turns it inside out. Mr.
Travers tld me about liim, and sald this
was a warniug against bleeding to death,
" Of course you'll say I must have been
doing somethlng dreadfully wrong, but I
don't tbink I have; and even lf I had, 111
leave it to nuybody lf Autit Kliza isn't
enougli to provoke a whole company of
saint. The truth is I got into trouble this
time just through obeying promptly as soon
as I was spoken to. I'd like to know if
that was anythlng wrong. Oh, 1'm not a
blt sulky, anil I am always ready to admit
I've done wrong when I really have ; but
this time I tried to do my very best and
obey ray dear mother promptly, and the con
sequence was that I was shut up for a week,
besides other thlngs too palnful too mention.
This world is a fleetlcg show, as our minis
ter cays, and I sometimes feel that it isn't
worth'the price of adtnission.
Aunt Elizi is oue of those oin!ii that
always know overythinc, and know that no-
body el-e knows auything, partlcularly us
men. Sbe was visiting us, and findiug
fault with everybody, and constantly sayint
that men are a nuisance in a home, and wby
didn't mother tnake father tneud cliairs and
whitewah the ceiling, and what do you let
tliat great lazy boy waste all liis time for?
There was a little spot iu the roof wbere it
leaked when it ralned, and Aunt Kliz t said
to father, " Why don't you have euergy
enough to get up ou the roof aud see where
tliat leak ls 1 would lt 1 was a man inanK
goodness I ain't." So father said, " Vou'd
better do it yourself, Eliza." And sho said,
" I will thls very day."
So after brea'kfast Aunt Kliza asked me
to show her where the scuttle was. We
always kept it open for froah air, except
when it rained, and she crawled up through
lt and got oj the roof. Just then mother
called me, aud said it was goiug to rain, and
I must cbse the scuttle. I beg.ln totell her
that Aunt Kliza was ou the roof, but she
wouldn't listeu, and said, "Do as 1 tell you
this instant wlthout any words why cau't
you obey promptly V" So I obeyed as
prompt as I could, aud fdmt the scuttle aud
tastened it, nnd then went down sUlrs, and
looked out to see tne sbovter come up.
It was a tremeudous sbower, and it struck
us in about ten miuutes; and didu't it
pourl The wind biew, aud it lightened
and thundered every minute, and the strnet
looked justlike a river. I got tiredof look
ing at it alter a while, and sat down to read,
and in about an hour, wbeu it was begin
ning to rain a little easler, mother came
where I was, and said, " I wonder where
sister Klizi is, do you know, Jitnmy?"
And I said I supposed she was ou the roof,
for I left her there when I fastened the
scuttle just before it began to rain."
Nothlng was done to me until after they
bad got two men to bring Aunt Kliza down
and wring the water out of her, and the
doctor had come, and she had been put to
bed, and the house was quiet again. Ity
that time f ither had come home, and when
he heard what had happened but, there I
lt is over now, and let us say no more about
lt. Aunt Kli.i is as well as ever, but tio
body has said a word to me about prompt
obedience since the thunder-shower. Jimmy

X Falthful Herder.
A dog in New Mexico, returning one
avening v,ith hts sheep tothefold, discov
ered tbat his luaster was still ln his shanty,
and kept very quiet. The uext evening, it
was the same. llut after pemilng up tbe
sheep, the dog smelled about the door,
scratched, barked, and even howled, as be
was getting very hungry j but his luaster
did not niove. The dog, true to his ap
pointed duty, wetit out with the elieep on
the third day; but that night, when he
drove the rlock into their peu, the last one
lo attempt to get ln becanie the vlctim of
the dog's appetite. This inethod of provid
ing for his own wants becanie a part of the
falthful dog's daily duty. Kvery evening,
tlie last sheep to try to enter the fold waa
seized by hlin, and served for supper and
breakfast aud for dinner the following day.
The tlock was not decimated by this steady
drain upon its resources. On the coutrary,
it increated in numbers ; and, when at tbe
end of two years from the time of the death
of the propriotor the rauch was visited, and
the remains of the owner were found, the
dog was still at his post of duty, j-alously
guardiug his tlock and drlvlng tbein to the
best pastures every day and to the fold at
night, before whlch he slept, to keep the
wild sheep-eaters of the plains at a civil dis
tance. ClirUtian al ii'orl:.
X llrnre Iloy.
A company of boys in a street in Boston,
one day after school, were engaged in snow
balllng. William bad made a good hard
anowball. Iu tbrowlng it, he " put in too
much powder," as the boys say he threw
it too hard, aud it went larther than he in
tended, rigbt through a parlor window. AU
the boys ehoiiteil 1 " There, you'll catch it
nowl ltun, llill runl" Theu they took to
their heelt. llut the brave William straight
ened up, and said: 'I shall nol run.' lle
went directly to the house where the window
had been broken. Ile rang at the door,
acknowledged what ho had doue, aud was
sorry. Ile then gave his uame, and the
uame of lils father, and of his fatlier's place
of business, aud sald the damage should be
" Now, that's what I call a brave fellow,
he wouldu't run and he wouldn't tell a lle.
Hurrah for William, I say."
Ves, aml so say we, all of us.
Aud sothiuks Mr. Sincer, for he has put
upon the table these sli lines about truth.
Why should you fear Uie truth to tell?
Does falsehoua ever do so well?
Can you be tuttlstled to know
There's soinething wrong to bt Je Lelow ?
No, let your (aull be what it may,
To own it ls tlie better way.
A VKUY little lioy had clitnbed into his
mother's lap, aml was lubbiug his soft
cheek agaln.t hers. " O dear mamma I" be
aaiil. " nliall 1 have to be a man when I
grow up, aud have old, rougli flzkers, like
papa V Shau't I neyer, uever be a lady ?"
I.ittik Luoy fell and liurt her knee
badly, whlch her mother, wheu the went to
bed in the dark, tried to bandage. Soou
the little one was heard calling" Mamma,"
sald she, " thls bandage is not iuthoright

" AitTiiuii," said a coo l-natured father to
liis young hopeful, " I did not know until
to-day that you had been whipped last
week." " Didn't you, pa V renlied the hone-
