THORNS AND ROSES.
From morn till night John's hammer rang,
The tale of labor telling;
But oft he marked, with envious eye.
Squire's Hardy's cosy dwelling.
One day,the squire himself came by
~ "My horse has lost a shoe, John,
And that's theleast of all my cares,
But 'cares don't conie to you, John,
The lightning strtick my barns last night;
My child near death is laid, John;
No! life is'not'whst folks suppose,
'Tis not ofrroses, made, John."
And then. the squiLe rode sadly off,
John watched him in amazement,
And, as he watched, two faces -brigbt
Peeped from the open casement.
He'heard his wife's voice, sweet and low,
Ilis baby's merry laughter;
John gave his anvil such a blow,
It shook each smoky rafter.
"I would not-change with squire," said he, ,
"For all.his land and money;
There's thorns for him as well as me,
But not such roses bonny!
-Frederick E. Weatherly.
'I cannot recommend you, be
lieving you to be a thief; but I
will be so merciful that I will let
you depart. Go at once.'
The voice and face were stern
Geoffrey Baird knew that all the
piteous appeals-he hadimade,the as
sertions ofinnocence he had franti
cally declared had fallen upon
ears not indeed deaf, but closed to
'You have been very kind to
me, Mr. Hoyt,' he said, -his voice
quivering with pain, 'and I hope
some day you will know that I
had rather cut off my right hand
than let it rob you.'
There was no reply, and the
boy, for he was only nineteen,
walked slowly from the room,
where he had been accused of
crime,.e.ondemned and punished- in
a brief half hour.
He was a widow's only son, and
very poor, but Abraham Hoyt ha~d
been very kind to him, employing
him in light labor about his ex
tensive grounds, and trying him
well, and allowing him to read
whatever he wished in his library.
And from the library a valuable
watch and chain had been stolen
from a table drawer, when there
wvas no.one as far as'mid be as
ertained, in the room outt Geof
Crusied, humiliated, almost
heart-brokea. the lad walked from
tbe house across the wide gar
den, . bright with summer bloom
that seemed to mock his misery.
He had his hand upon the.great
iron gate leading into the road,
when he heard his name called, in
a clear, childish voice.
'Jeff, Jeff! Oh, wait a moment !'
And then, turning his heavy
eyes, he - saw a. fairy. of ten surn
mors, a golden-haired darling,
dressed all in white, coming dow n
the broad walk with flying feet..
01 all the treasures his employ er
possessed, Geoffrey knew this,
his only- child, was the dearest.
Motherless from her birth, she
had . been her father's idol her
whole petted life.
'Jeff,' she panted, coming to his
side, 'you must' go away, papa
says, but I know you never, never
took thbe watch ! Did you ?'
'No, Miss Daisy, I never took
* I know it ! I'm going to find
out who did take it. And Jeff,
you muist. take this.'
She opened her tiny white hand
to show lying upon the palm a
broad twenty-dollar gold piece.
But the boy shrank back.
'No, no, Miss Daisy,' he said 'l
But you must. It is my own,
my very own. Aunt Louise gave
it to me on my birthday. In Lhe
corner 1 scratched '31. H.' for Mar
garet Hoyt, with a pin, but I
guess it won't hurt it. Please,
please, dear Jeff, do take it.'
She pressed it into his reluctant
hand and then throwing her arms
around his neck, kissed him with
her child lips; saying :
'I will find out who did take tbe
watch, Jeff, and then you will

flying curls out on the summer air
that wafted to Ge'ffrey a last
'Good by, dear Jeff.'
With a heavy heart he went
homeward, to tell his sorrow and
disgrace. He feai-ed it would al
most kill his mother, but aft'er
hearing bim patiently, she said:
'I had a letter from Albany this
inorni.ng, Geoffrey, from my fath
er's lawyers. Twenty-five years
ago my father cast neo off for
marrying a poor man. He died
without forgiving me but to.you
lie has left his fortune-nearly
balf a million in money upon ccn
dition you take his name when
you ape of age. I have packed up
your possessions, and we will go
to Albany to-night.
The voice was sharp and imper
:11ivo, and Margaret Hoyt, looked
ap from the task of teaching Alice
Bristow her letters, to answer,
but before she spoke the beautiful
;irl who entered the school-room
'Margaret, I want you to come
nd show Elsie how to trim
my dress for to-night. Everybody
said you had rich exquisi-te taste
before your father failed and died.'
The pale, patient face flushed a
ittle at the cruel words, but Laura
Brist.ow did not heed the pain she
'Come now,' she said impatient
y ; '1 want to look particularly
well. for Willard Wharton is com
ing. It is the first party since be
same from Europe. He has been
vegetating in Florence ever so
ong, with a consumptive mother;
but she died a year ago, and after
traveling awhile he has come
home. Did you know him?'
'I never heard the name.'
'Come to think of it, he left long
before you came.'
Alice's primer was put aside,
tnd Margaret accompanied Laura
o the room where her finery was
>eing prepared for a brilliant par

'Miss Hoyt,' Miss Bristow said
ooking up from the cloud of tulle
inder her fingers, 'I wish you to

fou to wear wh.ite lace ruffles and

That will not interfere with your

But the soft violet eyes had lost
nothing of their- sweetness; the
golden hair gathered into a rich
knot, was full of waves and ring.

around the delicate oval of her
pale face, and the sensitive mouth
was still expressive and lovely.
She sighed a little as she p)ut
the soft white ruffle into her black
dress, and a few white flowers
into her hair.
'It seems like forgetting poor
ater.' she thought, but yet she
knew her appearance had been too
loomny for a festive occasion.
The guests were gathering, and
Daisy had gone into a small sit
ring-room opposite the wide draw
ing-roomns to wvait until she was
summoned to sing and play.
She had never been in society
in.Albany, and knew none of Mr.
Bristow's friends, so she was gra
ciously excused from taking any
more. active part in the social
gathering than to amuse by her
singing, or help willing feet along1
by playing dance music.
She was turning over the leaves
ofa new magazine, quite sure of
being uninterrupted whben the door
opened, and looking up she saw a
'Pardon me,' he said, '1 thought
this was the drawing-room.'
Then, as she lifted her face, he
'Daisy ! Daisy !' he said, and not
realizing the familiarity of the
address, she rose to stretch out
both hands, saying:
'Jeff! Is it Jeff!'
'It is Jeff,' he answered, 'or rath-1
. it is Willard Whart.on.'
Then moving a chair near the
one she had occupied, he told her
of his grand-father's legacy and
the change of name.
'Through good. and ill,~years of
prosperity and the temptation that
assails all of,ys, I have -carried a
golden talism'n, to keep my. heart

day dare to bring it to your feet,'

CURING THIE BABIES.
A Woman Doctor Working Miracles.
Special Correspondence of the Times.
NEW YoRK, July 21.-Some four
weeks ago, while crossing from
staten Island to New York with
he little ones,.every one noticed
little child in its nurse's arms.
[t was apparently a year old, but
2ad wasted away until it was a
ner shadow ; its forehead was
irawn back and glazed; the nose
inched, and the mouth looked as
f it had lost all power of actien,
)ut the eyes of the little one were
upernaturally bright and it enjoy

Jpon further questioning I found
.e child'si bowels were serio)usly
ffected, and yet its food had been,
io long as~ it would eat, barley
water and oat-meal gruel and no
nilk! It is one of the mysterieS
ow the mass of chil.dren live and
bhrive. 'Why don't you give the

very good..' 'Have you ever tried
~ondensed milk ?' 'No ; is it good

or if you can use it, and to one

cup of boiling water.' The chi!d f

the baby nor shawl. for berself, a

never expected to see it again, for n
it could not possibly live but a few s
days, so my children bade it a I
The sequel is more pleasant. A b
few days ago, while attending to e
some business in Grand street,- v
chance took me into a strange C
store, where I was waited upon 0
by a very interesting.saleswoman, f
evidently the proprietor's wife. ti
Motherly women will talk about y
children you know, and the lady it
said that she had three darlings, d
two little girls and -a sick baby y
boy, who had been ill for months, p
given up by the doctors and had
been lying at the point of death
until this week.
A WONDERFUL DOCTOR. Ii
'Better now, is he?' 'Oh, yes;
very much better, and, if you have
time, I would like to tell you
about it.' My thoughts went back
to- the sick child on the Staten
Island ferry boat ; but surely that
child could not be alive still; it
was almost dead when we saw it;
still 'I questioned.
. 'Did your nurse take the baby t
over to Staten Island some three
or four weeks ago?' 'Yes, every s
afternoon, until the child became o
too weak for the-trip. Why do a
you ask?' I explained. The nurse
was called and remembered the
lady who 'had such a pretty
baby-boy and two dear little girls,
and suggested condensed milk for
the sick baby,.' and then the moth
er's heart opened and the story h
was told of 'how baby had failed
after that day, could take no nour
ishment for over two weeks and a
only lived on drops of brandy, a
forced through closed teeth, and
hardly breathing, it seemed like a s
dead child, only its eyes opened c
and closed intelligently. All the
doctors could do was to ease its
sufferings; the child, they said, y,
must die. Then I. heard of a wo-c
man doctor who had done marvel
ous things for the children of the
very poor, and hardly hoping 1 e
took tbe child to her. I de not
know what she did to the baby, ti
but she bent over him some time ,
and prayed earnestly that his lit- n
tie lips might be unclosed. She
gave me no* medicine, but lull di
rection as to how we were to care s
for baby, advised- condensed milk n
prepared as you said. I did as she
told me, and in t wo hours my child b
ad opened his mouth and taken,0a
without being forced, a spoonful ti
of the milk ; since then be has cat

yourself.' Poor little mite ! As b
he sat upright in his nurse's arms
I wondered if' ho had not seen the

and he seemed strong and bright, le
and like an old acquaintance he p
