THE -DATS TnAT NEVER SH AXE RETERN.
Aa in heart-sickening dreams vro soo
The friends we loved of yore,
So. oftentimes como back to us
The days that aro no more;
Our breath comes quick, our tears fall
Our hearts within ?B burn,
To think of days,
Of glorious days,
That never shall return. ?
When our undaunted, hopeful hearts
Knew no suoh word as rall,
We thought that. God was on our eidc,
And right must still prevail ;
Tho hopes aro gone that spurred us on
To battlo with tho foe, ?
Beneath the flag,
The cross-marked flag,
That now is lying low.
How proudly waved it in tho air,
When bright-plumed viotory
Went with our eagor-hcarted hosts,
Resolved to do or die;
But fold it by-they, too, low lie,
Who that dear bannor bore;
O noble heart?!
0 gallant hearts!
That boat on earth no more! A. S. L.

TUE zn Ail. GUARD'S STORY.
Reader, have you ever been obliged
to wait at a small country railway
station for an early train? If you
have not, you have not experienced
tho ne plus ultra of human misery.
But when, as was my caso last year,
you havo left a jolly party, driven
nvo miles to catch the mail at 2 a. m.,
and found on your arrival at the
station, not that tho train had gone,
for that would bo a relief, but that
you had mistaken the time, and bad
got three-quarters of an hour to wait,
?our lot is not.?un enviable one. So
thought, as I stamped up and down
the ill-lit platform, and gazed into
the darkness beyond, wbicb was
only broken by tho dim and misty
light of the "distance" signal, somo
hundred yards down the line. The
occasional barking of a house dog
alone broke the stillness, except
when now and then the autumn
breeze played in a wailing tono on
the telegraphic wires over my bead.
As I paced np and down to warm my
feet, I felt regularly "savage" that
the well-meant solicitations of the
company assembled at thc Beeches
had induced me to forego tho last
waltz with Minnio Cameron and hur: I
1/ to the station.
I had been staying for the last
fortnight at tho house of a relative,
and what with shooting, fishing and
(must I confess it?) occasionally flirt?
ing with the blue-eyed Minnio, tho
days had passed rapidly; and when
recalled to London by my father's
business-like letter, which hinted at
some impending calamity connected
with our firm, I could hardly believe
that my leave had so nearly expired.
Thero was no helli for it, and go I
must. My relatives appeared as sorry
as I was when I announced my in?
tended departure, and I fancy I
could discern traces of tears in Min?
nie's sunny eyes as I bade her fare?
well in tho hall that evening, bearing
with me a shining tress of her flaxen
hair, and a hasty kiss, as souvenirs
of my visit. Oh, Minnie, Minnie!
what would that excellent mau, tho
incumbent, think, could ho have
seeu the shining token of what I
fancied was your affection for me,
lying on my table prior to its being
committed to the flames, with a
bundlo of old letters, when last
month I heard you were "engaged?"
Under such circumstances as I havo
describod, tho reader will easily ima?
gino I waa not in a particularly
cheerful frnmo of mind ou tho night,
or rather morning, in question. I
sauntered into tho dreary waiting
room, and lighting a cigar, seated
myself in front of tho expiring fire,
which I was oven deniod tho amuse?
ment of stirring, tho authorities hav?
ing carried away the fire-irons.
Placing my feet upon tho fender, I
lay back iu my chair, and, as most
men would havo dono, I began to
ruminate upon the events ol tho last
fortnight, and-Minnio! After a time
I roused myse'f, anti nttemptcd the
repensai of my father's letter, and
then-I fell fast asleep. How long I
slopt I cannot say, probably about
five minutes, but it scorned an ago,
when I was aroused by tho creaking
of tho "breaks" of a train. I started
up, and rushed blindly to the door,
fancying that tho mail had come up,
when I carno in violent contact with
a guard, who was entoring at tho
same moment as I was making u hur?
"Bog your pardon, sir," Raid tho
polito official; "what's the matter?"
"My train is goingo I think," said
B "Let me see."
"It's only ? down goods and cattle,
sir," replica my companion, "Whiok
shunts nere. Tho up moil aint't due
<or ne??iy tvrtnty tc^ jct."
"Confound it I". I muttered; "why.
did it wake me then? andi returned
to the fire-place.
"Cold night, sir," remarked the
guard, as he came towards me,
"Yes, " said I, "and a wretched fire,
"I think wo can mend that, at any
rate," he replied; and, leaving the
room, he returned in a few minutes,
accompanied by an indi vidual whom
I rightly oonjectnred to be the stoker
of the "goods" train, carrying a large
shovel-full of li YO eo.ds, -rthich, placed
upon tho cinders, soon improved our
fire, and gare quite a cheerful aspect
to the dingy apartment.
"Thank ye, Jim," said the guard,
as the stoker departed. "Now, sir,
that is an improvement, ain't it?" ho
"It is, indeed," I replied; "audi
am much obliged to you for procur?
ing the coals."
"Don't namo it, sir," was tho re?
ply. "One must do something when
one has to wait, yon know."
"How long do you remain here
then?" I asked.
"Till 8.40, sir. I take up tho mail, "
was the reply.
"Oh, indeed," said L
"YOB, sir. I'm on this job all this
month." And as he spoke the guard
drew a pipe from his pocket, and
having lilied and lit it, ho began to
smoko in silence.
"Have you been long on this line?*'
I asked, ofter a pause.
"Well, sir, about three years, and
on the mail duty, on and off, about
ono. I'm a rog'lar man of letters,"
he added with a grin.
I laughed, and ho continued:
"I was nearly choked with a capi?
tal letter when I was a baby. I had
letters on my collar when I was in
tho police. 1 was made a guard all
along of a bit of a letter. And now
I am a guard, I looks after tho let?
Having made these remarks in a
jocular tone, my companion gave mo
a knowing nod, and puffed away at
his pipe with greater vigor than be?
fore. I was much nmused at his re?
joinder, and asked bini what ho
meant by having been made a guard
"all along of a bit of a letter."/
"I wasn't always a guard, sir," ho
said. 1 *I was onco in tho police, and
it was through being a detective, as
I gol to be employed on tho lino."
"I 8upposo you didn't liko the po?
lice, then?" said I.
"Well, sir, not much, though at
times it was pretty good, and wo had
some jolly business. Aye," ho con?
tinued, with a good scent it is almost
as excitin' as fox nuntin', is thiof
cutchin'; for somo of tho fellows is ns
cuunin' as foxes, every bit.
"It waa through a robbery and a
bit of paper that I was mado a guard,
asl said just now."
"How was that?" said I, catching
at the idea of a story to beguile tho
time. "I should liko to hear a bit
of your experiences as a detective?"
"It ain't much of a story, sir, but
I'll tell it to you with pleasure;" ond,
taking a few rapid pulls ut his pipe,
tho guard commenced.
"It was about two years ago, and
thoro had been a great pint'' robbery
in tho city, and tho thieves hat got
clear away, so wo was all obliged to
keep our eyes open and our wits
about us, for though wo had somo
suspicions, thero was no real clews to
go upon; it was mostly guess work.
Two or threo mon was arrested, but
nothing was over proved against
them, so they was let go, iu course.
Nothing over transpired respecting
tho robbery, and it was almost for?
gotten, except by somo of us detec?
tives, for a roward of ?100 had boen
offered, and wo was, in courso, anx?
ious to catch tho mon, as well for tho
credit of tho forco as for tho money,
which, sir, was not by no means to
bo dospised. Well, sir, I wasn't half
satisfied about ono of tho men who
had been arrested, and whoso name
mia Dover. He and another was
always together, and we in tho forco
nick-namod them 'Chatham and
Dovor,' in consequence. Wo had
'Chatham' (whoso real namo was
Byles) np, too, but nothing turned
np. However, ono night after thc
business had blown over a bit, I
thought I'd have a look after Dover;
so I goes where I was snro to find
him or his 'pal,' in an out-of-the-way
pince near Field Lano. Whoa the
door was oponed, I saw as tho woman
was a new hand, and didn't know
mo. So. I asked if Dover was in<
'No,' says she, 'ho's gone out ol
i . 1 , -??
town.' 'In -which, direction?' says I.
She . pointed upward, whioh meant
North. 'Indeed,' says I. ?Well, tell
him as Mr. Moss wants to see him as
soon jas ho returns-makin' a shot,
oh. x. was ac a man as I suspected
was a 'fenco,' and who I had my eye
ou. 'All right,'says she, and shuts
