And the starlight gleamed forever,
Sailed a vessel light. and free.
Morning dew-drops hung like manna
Ob the bright folds of her banner,
And the zephyrs rose to fan her,
Softly to the radiant sea.
At her prow a pilot beaming
In the flush of yonth stood dreaming
And he was In glorious seeming
Like an angel from above.
Through his hair the breeies sported,
And at on the wave he floated,

Warbled lays of hope and love.
Through those locks to blithely flowing,
Bads of laurel bloom were blowing,
And hit hands anon were throwing,
Music from a lyre of gold.

And a rainbow arch abided

Boiled beside a city haunted
By an awful spell that daunted

down by her, told of what had just trans
pired, and of her promise.
Mrs. Ellis folded her to her bosom, and
said: "Although I love you most truly,
and it will be like taking a daughter from
my arms, you were right in making the
promise. Ab soon as your education is
completed, go and redeem your father.
Be to him all that a daughter should be."
Lalta was to start for school the next
afternoon, Mr. Green called around to
see her just before starting. Mr. Ellis
offered him a situation as clerk in a dry
goods store until he could procure means
to enable him to resume the practice of
the law, which offer was gratefully accept

left her as one full of grief.
The last year of school was the opening
of the literary career of our heroine's life.
Her productions had become quite popu
lar, and her name was spread abroad as
the talented authoress. At the closing
exercises of school, she came forward and
read her address with honor both to her
self and teacher. She made her exit amid
a perfect storm of applause.
Mr. Green was there. He forgot the
past and dreamed only of the future, while
he watched his daughter with eager eyes,
and his heart was overjoyed at her tri
umph. He saw his own aspiring and am
bitious youth reproduced in her, its mas
culinity toned down and softened by the
beauty she had inherited from her mother.
He had not forgotten his vows of reforma
tion, but was steadily reaching the posi
tion he had once claimed in society, and
which he had forfeited. No one, save
Latta and her kind benefactors, knew his
past history. The world 6aid he was Lat

After school Latta and her gentle friend,
Mary Ellis, returned home. Mr. Green
gave up his rooms at the hotel and came

daughter, the only tie that bound him to

Woman nsid Ctillil Burled Alive.
In Boggs county, on the road leading
from Marshville to Fruwick, Georgia, and
ten miles from the former town resides a
well-to-do farmer by the name of Myrup.
By hard work and skillful management,
his productive little farm, which was the
only property he found was left him by
the enemy, when he returned to his once
happy home at the termination of the lale
civil war. His circumstances, so far as
the goods and comforts of earth ate con-;
cerned, had become even better than (hey
were when the labor of the field was per
formed by his own few indolent and much
indulged slaves. And even now his con
dition might be as pleasant as it is pros-"
perous, but for the calamity that has so
recently and in such an unusual and
shocking manner overtaken him.
His amiable and loved wife, who was a
helpmeet indeed, early after breakfast had
taken her infant child about nineteen
months old, in her arms, and had gone off
in search of a fine and favorite milch-cow,
that for the first time had failed to come
the previous evening, to add her daily con
tribution to the rich dairy of her kind and
On coming home from the field to his
dinner, Mr. M. learned that his wife and
sweet little prattler, the two most precious
of all his earthly treasures, had not made
their appearance. Almost frantic with
fear and excitement for their safety, know
ing that a very large bear had been seen
in the swamp near by only a few days
before, he put out immediately in search
of the missing ones. All the lured men
of the place followed and each takin
different direction; the whole country was
ransacked for several miles around. The
neighbors, also, as the sad news reached
them joined irt the search.
The sun was just sinking behind the
western hills, when as the miserable bus
band was returning up a small branch
which had its source at this spring, and
aB he was still anxiously but almost hope
lessly looking in every direction. While
walking along he descried in a patch of
luxuriant grass, in a marsh a few paces
off, something like a piece of gingham,
He stood horrified and motionless for a
moment or two and his heart almost stop'
ped pulsating as the thought rushed
through his frenzied brain, that the object
he saw might be his wife's bonnet, and
that both she and his darling boy might
be buried in the fathomless quagmire over
the center of which lay this relic.
Approaching to within a safe distance
of this miry pit he discovered the grass

was in getting supper. A consequential,
important chap stalked down the room,
strode up to the side-table in front of me, school a- great deal,

members of the school-board, went to the
home of the prodigy for an interview. He
was marvelously ready with answers to
every question. Out easy starters, such
as "Add 6 and 3, and 7 and 8, and 2 and
9 and 5," were answered like a flash, and
correctly every time. Then when we got
the little fellow at his ease, one of the di
