- Two litte urdbins'
In nhtgowns white.
Of the ed lamp,
Make tho ldving eyes
Of the mother damp
With a sweet s'urpris
As she catohes the words
On JohPny'a tongue
so musical soft,
Whether said or sung
She hardly knew;
But their melody rang
In her treasuring ear
For many a year
A fter Johnny grew
Through boyhood and youth
rure, generous, true.
Th~ey murmured "I lay me,"
And "Dear Lord bless,"
Then silence fell
And Elate the baby,
Could barely creep
To her pillow soft.
But Johnny aloft
His fine eyes raised
Ina childlike faith,
As if he gazed
In the human face
Of the children's friend,
As it used to bend
With the blessing hand
On the curly head.
"D 1ear Lord,," said he,
"Elsie. my sister,
And Johnny, that's me,
We want two big red appler,
As big as can be I
We waTrt them to-morrow,
Please send them down here,
The biggest to sissy,
She's such a lite dear"
A fervent " Amen "
In a confident tone,
And Johnny's " own prayor "
Was uresently done.
What Little Nell Did.
They were going hazel-nutting up in
the north lot-the Philbriok children
and Little Nell.
Littlo Nell was not one of the Pjil
brick children; in fact, she was not the
most ditant sort of a cousin to Will,
Jack, and Polly.
She was Dick iaong's daughter, and
Dick Long had been a poor, shiftless fel
low, who cobbled shoes, for a time, in
the village, two miles from the Philbrick
farm, and then went away to California,
never to be heard from again.
lie was not much loss, to be sure, so
the neighbors thought, but it killed his
wife, and when she died, good Mrs.
Philbrick opened her motherly heart and
arms to Little Nell, and took her in.
Her real name was Henrietta, but Miss
Jackson, the dressmaker, who read
Charles Dickens' stories a great deal,
called her one day, "Little Nell," and i!
clung to her ever after.
You seo she .was a quiet, shy litth
creature, with such big, soft, browr
eyes, and such a sweet, cooing voice, tbai
"Henrietta" seemed too long and hard i
namo for her.
It was Saturday afternoon, and, nasl
told you, Will and Jack and Polly anm
Little Nell were going hazel-nutting
They ea carried a basket, and oaci
lbasket had a flaky apple turnover.
Those were for lunch, in case the chil
dIren grot hungry; and we know, don'
wo, that growing, wide-awake boys and
girls arc always getting hungry?
It was a long time before the reached
the north lot. Polly forgot her "kit
fingers," and had to go back for them,
elso her poor little hands would havi
been stuck full of prickles. Then Jac)
must needs chase at woodpecker a lonj
way while the three waited for him.
But they got their baskets full of nuts
wvithi their prickly coverings, and at4
their turnovers-all but ,Jack. That ii
to say, Jack ato his turnover with the
rcst, but ho had not filled his basket.
I tdiink he had spent too much of the
afternoon in chasing the little red
sqlurrels, and in balancing himself on the
smooth log which spanned the b)rook.
Now the sun had gono down. It was
growing late and chilly.
Jack kicked crossly at a decayed
"You should have worked more and
played lesis," laughed Will, looking at
his ownl heaped up) basket.
"Mind your own bread and butter,"
retorted Jack, savagely. "You needn't
be afraid of my asking for any of younrs."
It was not at all a nice way for a
brother to talk. So thssght Little Nell,
and she slapped her hand softly inte
Jack's. "Come home niow, Jacky," she
said, "and I'll give you half of mine."
Jack laughed, and gave the old stump a
parting kick. A cloud of dust flew up.
Jack's foot had hammered its . way
through the rotten wood. The stump
was hollow. Jack pulled his foot out,
and after it rolled and rattled a rich,
brown streatm of nuts-three quarts at
the very least I
"Hlooray !" shouted Jack, capering
'wildly about. "I don't want any of any
body's nuts, now!"
Then he seized his basket andbea
to scoop in the treasure, by handfuls.
Little Nell looked on wilth wide-open
eyes. "Who put 'em there?" she asked.
"It's a squirrel's store-house," ans
"Wasn't he a jolly little fellow? and
wasn't it lucky I kicked ?" cried Jack,
briskly digging away the decayed wood,
to look for more.
The big brown eyes ran over with
tears, as LittleNell began to understand.
"Don't take them, Jack," she pleaded.
"I'll give you all of mine.."
,"All of yours ain't half so many aa
is here; and why shouldn't I take 'em,
I'd like to know? Finding is having,
"You didn't say so when I found your
ten-cent piece," said Polly, swinging her
Jack reddened, remembering what a
tirme there had been about that ten-cent
piece. "You keep slill, Polly Phil
brick 1" he said - "I aint 'a chipmunk, an'
a ten-cent piece isn't nuts. Ain't there a
lot, though ?"
And it was quite in vain that Little
Nell begged him to put them back.
She walked home beside Polly, silent
" We might give ours, Polly," she
said; " turn them down in a little heap
side of the stump, you know, where he
could find them easy. 0 Polly, what
will he do, when he gosto h is house
and finds they're all taen away?"
This was a long speech for Little Nell
But Polly laughed at her. " You lit
tle goosey, 'she said, "the squirrel
won't mind, and don't you think about it
But she did. She could not help it.
At the sipper-table thatrnight, Mamma
Philbrick counted noses. There was one
missig'; a little straight nose, undere
pair of big, brown eyes.
"Where is little Nell, e en?"
"I. haven't seen her wdoe We cam
home," said Will.
"Nor 1," said Jack.
"I haveu't, eiLher," said -Polly, '' but n
I know where she's gone. Jack robbed ri
a squirrel's hole to-day, and little Nell n
cried about it. She wanted to give the c
squirrel her hazel-nuts, an' I wouldn't ;Y
*onder if that's where she is." 0
" What's that ?" asked Mr. Soule. a
Mr. Soule was a drover, who had come 1
to buy Papa Philbrick's cattle. He had e
very sharp black eyes and a snappy c
Polly jumped. "Oh" said she and 0
upset her teacup. Then she had io tell i
the story all over.
"Well, I never!" said Papa Philbrick
while the drover's black eyes twinkled a
Presently the door opened sd Little s
Nell crept in, breathless, with red ,
cheeks, and soft hair blown about her V
face. She put her empty basket down 1
"Did Mister Chippy make a bow, and a
Bay 'Thank'ee mum?' 'asked Jack, with v
a laugh. t
"Don't you tease the child I" ordered c
Then Little Nell had her supper. a
Mamma Philbrick gave her oie of the c
nicest gold-band china bowls, full of I
milk, and a silver spoon to sip it from. I
After that, Mr. Soule took her on his e
lap, and told her stories, in his sharp,
snappy voice, until bed time.
The next day but one, the children
went to the spot where Little Nell had
loft her hazel-nuts; but they had all dis
appeared. Little Nell was quite sure
the squirrel had carried them off tc is
new house. I think so too
But the best is not fold.
When Pap a Philbrick came home
from the vill age postoffice, one night,
not lopig after this, he brought a little

In the northern legends swans play a
toot romautio part% Two separate our
mnts may be distinguished in the swan
iyths of Teutonic and Scandinavian
ountries, To one curent belong the
arious stories of swan maidens, to the
ther those concerning the knights of the

east worship and images of nature, po
try may play a part; though it is not
lear that the swan maidens of the north

ne which would liein process of imagina
ive reasoning like this: Swans are beings
11 softness, grace and purity; so are
ome rare maidens; therefore, -some rare
iaidens are in reality swans.
At any rate there was no question that
uch stipernatural beings existed. They
rere both fairer and wiser than mortal
romen. They could change from one
liape to another at will. To assume
[ie hrnnan shape they doffed robes of
own or 'swanshirts," but retained in
ariably a gold or silver chain about
beir necks. She wvhoso swanshirt was
arried off by a mortal could no longer,
rhile he kept it safe, become a bird
gain or resume its freedom. On the
ther hand, she from whose neck in her
uman shape the chain was taken, im
aediately became a swan again, and
ould not recover her humanity until she
,ot back her chain.
Sometimes a hunter approaching a for
st pool would descry a damsel of more
han mortal beauty bathing in its waters,
vould notice the chain about her neck
aid the tobe of down hanging from a
roe, would seize the robe and bear the
lamsel home to live with him in happi
iess until one day he should forget the
cey which kept her inagic garment from
tier, and return to find her lown forever.
Dr swan-brides would consort of their
own accord with 'warriors who had sur
prised them at dawn as they sat spinning
mn human shape beside the margin of a
mountain turn, until after seven years
their hearts would change, and they
would fly away, leaving their husbands

Another Icelandic story tells how Helgi
and Olaf fought on the ice of a frozen
lake, and how Kara, the mistress of
Helgi, hovered over the heads of the
combatants in the likeness of a great
swan, and by her magic blunted the
weapons of them that fought against
Helgi, until by chance he struck off a
leg of the swan with his sworth and im
mediately the fortunes of the battle
The other great swan myth of the north
is that of the injured maiden, to wvhose
aid, in her extremity, there conmes sailing
a knight in a boat drawn by an enchanted
swan, and who, after the knight has res
cued and made her his bride, de'stroy.,
her happiness by insisting that he shall
tell her who he is andl whence he conies.

mo. inventor of the Beli Rope O0
The late Cqpbin Ayres, of Patterson,
N. J., was the inventor of the resent
bell rope system on railroads. When he
commenced running on the New York
and Erie Railroad the locomotive had no 0
cob fo. the engineer-nothing' but a
framework. There was no way to oU
over the cars nor for the engineer n
communicate with the conductor when
the train was in motion. In those days, 0
instead of the conductor running the IP
train, as at present, the engineer had en- P
tire charge, and the condiuctor wa.s a
mere collector of fares and tickets. ' In c
1842 Ayres inaugurated a system of sig- 0
nals by a cord running over thq cars to
the engine, where it was attached to a
stick of wopd. Ayres' engineer, a Dutch- c
man named Hamill, resented the innova- I
tion, cut the stick loose, and the conduc
tor and engineer had a fight at Turner's
over the matter, Ayers whipping his en
gineer badly, and thereafter conductors,
and not engineers, had charge of trains.
Soon after the bell rope and gong went
