For labor is th thing

The bread that all must eit

Must live by others' sweat ;
And thus you eee it takes.

A young girl was standing behind the
drapery within the curtained room, where
nothing sermcd wanting ef beauty or

stormy uigbt? and impatiently tapping
her little foot upon the floor, while au ex
pression of angry disconteut shadowed a
face perfect in outline, marring sadly its

The snow full thick and fast, and but
few were abioad ; none, but those who
were by necessity compelled to brave the
chilling blasts and blinding storm.
' Suddenly, with a gesture of disap
pointment and vexation she dashed away
the folds of damask, and advanced to

"It is intolerably provoking. Here I
have been watching for that girl a whole

"Indeed but I am, Guardy, Dr. Holmes

Ross, "so I shall expect to wake np in
the email hours of the morning with tid

We will now turn to another home,
where poverty abideth, and where Mabel

over her work, a dress richly embroider

patterns ou a groundwork of white silk.
This is the dresa for which the beautiful
heiress is wailing the dress in which
she expects to captivate the best match

days of prosperity and on his return from
the continent, a month previous to our
story, had sought them out and offered
his service gratuitously an offer grate

poor, but never until Lulu's revelation
had he dreamed of the extent of their
poverty. " Mabel's loveliness had made a
deep impression on his heart, and when
he left them that evening, it was with the
resolve to shield her iu the future, under
hia protecting love, from all life's cares.
It was indeed a fierce storm that Ma

was necessarily sluw.

blinded by the snow, she staggered up

"Pay you, indeed ! Not I, I'll punish
