I have a pleasant little wife,
Who nothing, nothing lack?;
She keeps herself and things about
The house as neat as wax.
\nd everything, with worn au's taste.
Seems placed expressly-for h
The pleasure of a man who long a.
Has lived a bachelor.
Her handkerchiefs aro white as milk,
Her skirts as white.as snow, -
Her suppered feet ar?-smalr-and neat, 1
And alwavs "on thojjo."
She floats about as if upborne
On gum elastio springs, *
Or somo unseen mysterious power,
With undiscovered wings.
Her glossv hair is deepest brown,
Her eyes are softly dark.
And from their loving dep?s shoots forth
Full many a cheerful spark; _
Her smiles send speeding on their fhglil
The swift-winged rosy hours, i
And what was once ray darksome way
Is radiant now with flowers.
Mv linen has a glossy white*,.
More pure than over shone
On Parian marble, and, what's more,
Thero's ne'er a button gone.'
She knits me stockings, makes me shirts
And darns up all my rents,
And saves mo half of what wy once
My bachelor expense.
Now, all vou crusty bachelors,
With lire's great battle sore,
C?o get a wife and settle down,
And play thelool no more. , .
Don't be too-nico?-they're angels all
With loving hcart?f and true,
The secret is, be kind to them,
And they'll be kind to you. -.
"On tho twenth-fourth ?lay-th?
boy was gone to light the lamps
Sands says to me, 'How long will h<
" 'A half an hour,' says L
" 'Stevens,' says he. ?
" I told him to say Ben;
" 'Ben, then,' says he, 'I'm no
going to last much longer, I feel i
here, somehow-sort of warning,'
"He did look awful bad, but I tole
him to cheer up; we might get takei
off any time, for we were just in th?
'"No, no,' says he, *it's all ove
with me, I feel it here,' and. he pu
his hand on his breast. Lord, wha
-a hand it was to what I first knew it
Thin and lean, and the bones makin?
the skin look shiny over them, loft
too, as a woman's!
' ' 'There's a thing I want you t
do, Ben, if you get off at all.'
"I told him Td do anything io
him I could. x
" 'Now listen, Ben,' says he, 'for
ain't got much wind left. '
" 'The voyage. before last I cam
home with a lot of money, and mad
up my mind for a spree; so I wei
ashore, and got a flashy snit c
clothes. "Well, I didn't like the nam
of Sands, so I took another, and ho
a regular game. I'm verry sorry nov
but you see, when, a fellow's X>$%
three years' ?amongst the coolies^
seems as though he ought to have
little freedom when he gets among
white people again. < u \
" 'Well, I went down to the se
side to a village I knew, and there
saw .a girl at church. She seem?
took with me, so I struck up an a
quaintance with her for a lark. SI
took it quite serious, and was reg
larly in love with me, and I got
last to be in love with her. Well,
didn't mean no harm to the girl,
meant to marry her. I did, as cr
as God,' says he. 'Well, we we
wrong, and one night she said I h?
been cruel to her, and got cross-ai
then told me we must be found o
soon. I was savage at that and at h
being cross-poor girl, she'd cause
be. So I said I'd never see her aga
and went off in a huff. I meant
come back, I did, Ben. I. swear
Instead of that, I met a messmate
mine, and he got me drunk and shi
ped me on a West India trader, ai
when I came to myself I was too 1
from shore to get back; so I sulk
and shirked duty. The captain sa
" 'My man, it's no use-you're he
and you'll be paid. You can't g
back any quicker than with me; so i
your work like a man, and we shall
back in a couple of ..lontks or so,
" 'So I did my work. When '
got to Kingston I took the fever, a:
was in the hospital near two monti
he left me there, paying me for t
voyage out ; and th?n I carno hoi
and heard that she'd gone away, i
body knew where.
" -'Well, I set to work to find h<
, and tried all ways till the money v
gone, and then had to ship in t
Belle of Aberdeen, for I'm p'rel
good at whaling, and knew I coi
get money; and I wished to go ba
and find her, and get married to he
. 'Herewhe was took with spasms,
bad that I brought.out my case-bo t
of brandy and gave him a little,
just put in the cork, when the t
carno running to mo and fell down
of a heap close by me.
" 'What'a the matter?' says L
"Ho opened his mouth once
twice, and at last got out, 'A s?
It's close by-I can seo 'em on j
deck,'and he fainted right dead i
"I told Sands.
" 'A sail!' says he, and tried to
up. Lord! he'd no moro streni
than a baby, and fell down direct
looking as dead as could be. Iwj
od to know more about him, so I g
him some more brandy and asked!
tho girl's name.
" 'The sail,' says the boy, for 1
come to, and would ?av nothing e
'Oh, tho sail!'
" 'What's lier name?' says I
Sands. He stared at me as if
..j '"The sail!* scrie?fned the boy;
'fyou'll/n>iss it, and wu'shall die.'
. "I gav? him sonne more brandy,
and aaked^Jxjm agftin as loud as I
! C?^"What*8 her ?ame? What's the;
girl's name?' w * """'
M 'Esther Th-,' and he couldn't
finish. '. "
"I gave him all that was left now,
and asked him again.
7??* 'Esther ThbnTps?n,' says he. '
"Esther Thompson! .'Then' this
was Fitzjames. This chap, sir, that
I'd loved as if he'd been my brother,
and loved him still-*-by G-t-d, sir!"
said Ben, striking the table, -with his
fist; "this chap waa my greatest ene?
my-had been the seducer of Esther
'.-and yet I couldn't hnte him.
, ffThe boy kept screaming, 'Sail!
sail!' and I was half mad.
" 'Ben,' savs he, 'do you know
her?* " .
" 'Enow her! She's all that'? dear
i to me, you d-d villain. '
' ' 'No, no, ' says he, quite strong
again, 'not villain. I meant no harm
to the girl. I'meant-I swear I did
--to marry her, and nobody would
have known anything about it, if it
hadn't been for that drink, Ben;'and
aili-the while the boy kept crying,
f .'If you ever, see her again, tell
her that I didn't mean to be a villain.
I didn't mean to wrong her. Promise
"I saw he was going fast, and I
promised him I'd tell her.
" 'One more thing,'saysnfc. 'Ben,
here's something sown in my flannel
-cut it ont.'
"I cut it out-it was half a six?
pence; all crooked and bent.
" 'She gave me that,', says he, look?
ing at it as fond as if it was hoi-, -nd
I kissing it. 'Give it her back, and
tell her I meant toi marry her.'
*' 'I will,' says I, 'Sands, I will,
and may God forgive you, as I do. '
"The boy kept on screaming; so,
seeing Sends quiet, I went round to
the other side to look at the sail. I
was too late; she was out of all chance
Of making her hear or see.
"When I came back,|Sands was
gone ; the sixpence was in his hand ;
I took it out and took care of it, and
then went to the boy. He was almost
as dead as Sands. It was an awful
sight to see them both lying so still
Sands quite dead, and tho boy so near
it that yon could hardly believe he
wasn't. Not a drop of brandy either
-Sands had it all.
