The spring day rose from her sleeping
In the deep, dim caverns of mist,
With the waiting world to be keeping
Her brief and beautiful tryst:
But her sweet eyes opened weeping,
As the sunshine her pale lids kissed,
And thus Slit rose from her sleeping
In the caverns of eastern mist.
The world hath dreamed of the meeting,
From the first of the fartherest years,
But her hand was cold to his greeting,
And her cheeks were bitter with tears,
Her voice was the wind repeating
The pain of the heart that hears;
But the world was glad of the meeting
To the last of the lingering years.
eFor forth from her tears came flowers,
And out of her grief delight,
knd the buds swelled under the showers;
The blossoms, with sandals white,
3limbed up to their forest bowers,
From the broken seeds and night,
3ut who could foretell the flowers,
Or see in the grief delight.
PRE STORY OF A SCREEN.
The level beams of the mellow
lay sunset were revealing ev
ry flaw and crack in the cheap
apering which covered the walls
f the little garret-room where
label More sat busily at her sew
ig machine, and a single pot of
lue, velvet pansies in the high,
arrow window - made a spot of
>lor for poor Mrs. More's weary
res to rest upon, as she toiled at r
oss-silk embroidery which was
er whole occupation. The room c
as small and scantily furnished,
2t there was within its walls one
lie of evanished days-a black C
Ltin screen, mounted on a stan- i
rd of gilded bamboo,' and paint
[ in deep rich oil colors, with a c
arlet flamingo floating upward c
fainst a background of reeds and
'asses, while in the distance P
Lmed a stormy sunset sky. r
'Mamma did it herself; when I
eo was a girl at boarding-school,' I
id Mabe! More, to those who a~
4metimes asked the history of P
~is one remaining token of lux
-y. 'We have kept it through r
eorything. I would not part I
itb it for its weight in gold.' t
And then she would laughingly
11 the tale of how half a dozen
lectors of antiquities and esthe. u
Sfurniture had, at different 'I
Les, endeavored to puuchase the S
d satin screen. 0
'One man wanted to buy it with
pair of tongs and a brass coal. h
uttle,' said she; 'another one r<
fered a broken set of Thackeray's
>vels and a fender ; and a third 0
,rgained with a tete-a-tete set of h
ina, and a broken-nosed alabas. si
r statue of Psyche.' i
For Mabel was a bright-eyed,
reet-faced girl, who had a very h
~en sense of the ridiculous, and n
~ed through the hard realities of
~r life with the quiet fortitude "
an inborn heroine. s
But after azll the second-hand
alors were nothing in resolution e
d persistence as compared with
ss Ann Azalea Harper, the bl
ughtLer of the landlord from nl
bose leaky and badly-drained bi
emises they had removed a few at
seks previously. Miss Ann ir
.alea had a very fair idea of
ic-a-brac treasures and she had eC
st- ber fine eyes upon this very a
'It's worth a' deal of money,'
id Ann Azalea to herself. 'And g
was only this morning that p
Lnt Hepsy was wishing for just et
ch an old-fashioned screen.' a
Now Aunt He;sy was a rich old tU
aid shrewd, cru.a.y, elderly, and 11i
11 of distrust of~ all the smooth- X
ngued relatives wvhose profes- fe
ns of love and respect were so St
'A screen ?' said Aunt Hlepsy. bi
es, I want a screen.'w
'I'll painit you one, deair au nt,' st
id Ann Azalea. ci
'Much of a screen you could b

'1 improved a good deal at h
ardinir-school,' said Ann Azalea, n
ekly. 'And I'll stretch it upon
antique bamboo rack ; andi
ally I think it will please you.'s
'I don't !' said Aunt Hepsy.
'May I try, dear aunt ?'
'Yes,' said the old lady, grudg-)'
gily- 'ynu may try!P
[ And Ann Azalea, who had al
ready in her mind appropriated
poor Mrs. More's antique screen,
set diligently about the work of
getting possession of the same.
'You owe my pa ten dollars ofI
rent.,' said Ann Azalea. spitefully,
as she sat panting f,r breath in
the little garret-room, after having
toiled up the three long and nar- i
row flights of stairs. 'You can't
'It is quite true,' acknowledged
meek Mrs. More, who, in her
daughter's absence, was absolute
ly defenseless; 'but--'
'You ought to be ashamed to
owe so*nuch money as that,' said
'We have been very unfortunate
of late,' said Mrs. More. 'But we
fully intend to repay all our in- I
debi.edness as soon as my (laugh
'Oh, that's all nonsense!' brus
quely interrupted Ann Azalea.
'Pa ought to have put an execu
tion-that's what he ought to
have done! !
Poor Mrs. More shuddered.
'And it ain't too late now,' add
ed the young lady, ignoring the
code and all its provisions.
'Oh, Miss Harper !'
'But we don't want to be exor
bitant,' gracionsly went on Ann
.zalea. 'So, sooner than be at
hc expense of a lawsuit, I'll take !
;ome trifle or other in pay. That t
creen, for instance,' with her
;reedy eyes fixed on the pictured
light of the scarlet flamingo. 'Ten
lollars is a deal of money, and the I
creen is an old-style thing, but I i
vouldn't mind calling things
yen, just to ease your conscience, I
'I couldn't-oh, I couldn't !' j
ried poor Mrs. More, the tears f
oming into her eyes. 'It was
'ork I did as a girl. My own s
oor mother sketched in the green ~s
ushes and grass with her own d
enrcil, anid-and if any one is to d
are it, it is already promised to
ni old family friend, who is to d
ay twenty-five dollars for it.' y
'Very well,' said Miss Harper,
ising, with an ominous toss of her f<
cad. 'Then, if you really mean o
aswindle us-' tl
'Miss H arper !' s
'If~ you really mean to swindle 'I
s,' severely repeated Ann Azalea, si
:may as well stop at the con- y
table's on my way back and put o:
n the distraint at once.' a
Mrs. More clasped - her thin w
ands in a sort of nervous hor- ti
if poor Mabel, who had gone :
at so buoyantly to carry home c<
en little parcel of finished work, -
dould return and find the min
mns of the law in possessios ! y
'I am a selfish creature,' she told
erself, 'to prefer my own incli- b~
ation to dear May's happiness !' b
And 80 she told Ann Azalea, is
ith a burst of tears, that the st
~reen should be hers. r
'1 will,send it to you-in the sI
vei,g,' said she, piteously.
'If you'll just wrap a a bit of p
rown paper around it, I'll take it ul
ow,' suggested Miss Harper, who b4
aieved firmly in the ancient NI
age of 'the bird in the band be- a(
ig worth two in the bush.' p1
And so the scarlet flamingo was hi
irried away in the triumphant
oms of Miss Ann Azalea Har
'After ill,' soliloquized she, 'I mn

se he took off them was worth d(

ke that whimpering little Mrs. 1C
ore would have known it per. p,
tly well. And I'm sure it'll gi
it Aunt Hepsy to a T!'w
\While poor Mrs. More, sobbing fo
tterly before the empty place gi
here her beloved screen had qp
oud, felt as if all the sweet asso- T
ations of her early youth bad in

'MIother-dear mother ! whby are fih

cried Mabel, coloring u., with
honest indignation. 'We owed her
not a single cent! Oh, dear, mo
ther, if I had only been at home !'
Miss Milman, a stout, short.
grizzle-headed lady, stood still in
the center of the room, looking
sharply about her.
'Don't fret, Alice More,' said
she.. 'Tears never yet did any
good. You may depend upon it,
this woman's deceit will yet re
coil upon her own head. What is
your landlord's name?'
'Harper,' said MIrs. More. 'Eben
'Oh !' said Miss Milman.
And then she went away.
'I think she grows more eccen

ing after the retreating figure of
the stout lady.
'Rich people have a right to be
ccentric if they please,' sighed
irs. More, still looking at the
3mpty place where the screen bad

THE LIEN LAW.
We clip the following from the
Greenville -eie of the 28th ultimo.
being an extract from the pro
ceedings of the State Grange and
State Agricultural Society Meet
Col. Butler read a paper taking
strongg round against the lien law,
which, be said, placed the laborer
who had nothing but his muscle on
an equality with the man who
owned the land. It demoralized
labor, and encouraged the laborer
to make arrangements with the
merbchart that comparatively freed
him from work. The law was of
no benefit to any body, for la
borers of this class depreciated the
land they worked. He had sta
tistics of liens, he said from eigh
teen counties. Calculations based
on these showed that there was in
round numbers, ten millions dol.
lars of property now under lien in
the State against seven millions in
1880 and fuur millions in 1879.
The Rev. Mr. Butler was called
on and gave Georgia's experience
of lien laws. He thought such
worked evil and that continually.
To be prospero;s a coun.try mu1st
be self-sustaining, and the South
was not so, depending on the
North for her food supplies. The
farmer who depended on the
storehouse in the city of Green
ville for his food was afflicted with t
a moral leprosy. His honest judg- I
ment was that Georgia was grow
ing poorer every day, and he be- t
lieved the lien law had much to
do with it. The country was
getting in debt deeper and deeper.
The people were infatuated with
the lien law and the credit syster.,
and the only reui3dy was to go
back to 'hard pan,' anI live on1e
year on ash cake and potatoes, d

Gen. Garlington asked how a
nian who owned nothing but land
~ould get credit from the merchant b2
vitbout a lien ? .No farmer was
brced to take out a lien. He was m
~ot obliged to do it. The mer
bant was certainly not to blame. m

~ut his s.ipplies without security. a

Mr. Livingston said his friend pC
