at his store, 01 riding over his farms, ex

sleep. He seldom noticed me, unless I
ate too much, or was dressed too expen
sively. My mother, absorbed in her
household cares, found no time to do more
for me than to provide my clothing add to
ensure my attendance at table. I was an

I had a coarse, hard bed in a comer of
my parouts' room, "to save work," my
mother said, that is the keeping in order
another chamber. Into this I was hurried
early at evening, to be out of the way,
and told to say my prayers, eomelimes by
the "help," uometinies by my mother.
My mother always gave me a kiss when
she laid me in bed, lor she loved her child,
but she never had lime to stay aud talk,
or pray with me.
She always hurried away to some press
ing or unfinished task, and 1 would he
sobbing half-defined grief, for though I
longed for something different, there were
ever too few manifestations of affection in
our household for me to be well aware that
it was for loving words, gentle caresses,
tender, thought! ul care, that I yearned.
In those days of childhood, though I
was keenly observant, the phase of life ex
hibited in our household was still a dim,
unpleasant problem to me. I uaed to sit
upon the door sill that faced our neglected
garden, for we tlid nothing so unprofita
ble as the cultivation of flowers, ami pon
der upon tho meaning of my father's oft
repeaied injunction "to save for a rainy
day." We had plenty of rainy days, of
course, und 1, with a child's literal inter
pretation, wondered that when they oc
curred 1 saw no fruits of this long-continued
and pertinacious saving. We lived
as; meagerly as ever, and perhaps even
more so, for we were not liable to the ob
servation of chance guests. What could
my father mean? As 1 grew older 1 un
derstood the matter better, but with no
greater reconciliation to the means em
ployed to provide against the dreaded con
tingency,. As my parents alvanced in veard the
wero penurious in all household expenses
that tended toward personal coinlort,
though there were 6rne ostentatious at
tempts at display. We had always lived
iu a huge hou.'-e which had comprised n
portion of my mother's inheritance. We
lived in it, 1 fancied, for a long lime
solely because its bequest to my mother
whs coupled with a proviso that she
should occupy ii and keep it in repair, and
there were other heirs ready to take ad
vantage of any failure on her part. Oth
erwise I presume, we should have lived in
a smaller house, and uiv faiher would
have added the dilieiouco in the rent to
In my childhood there were ninny un
furnished rooms in this house, large. high
and dim, and full of echoing sounds if a
foot fell upon their creaking floors, but
when I returned from school these were
handsomely furnished, though not without
many frowns and much complaiut from
my father, w ho informed me, olten enough,
that all thio expense va incurred thai I
might have my chance with the rest of the
"Your mother and I have pinched our
selves, and worked, and saved, all our
lives for you," he vould say. "We're
fixing up the old hout9 for you. If your
grandfather hadn't left you money to pay
for your echooliu' 1 o lulduH have done
this.. But now yi u re eddicated, you shall
have a nice home, and I ime by you'll get
married to somebody that's got money.
Yis, we've been savin' for you; we'd no
body else to save for."
"I thought it was lor a rainy day," I
answered, pertly. "Has the rainy day
come a' last, papa?"
"Hush!" thundered my incensed father,
"you'd better not let me hear any more of
your impudence, or it'tl be a 'rainy day'
for 3"ou, when your old father dies, and
cuts you off with a shillin ia his will."
It wan soon after this conversation, that
the expectation of guests had led my
mother into the usual extravagance which
tailed down my father's wrath, as re
corded at the commencement of ths sketch.
As he walked down the street in the di
rection of his store, I looked after bis
portly, well-clad figure, for he no longer
defied public opinion and custom iu his
dress and even his back seemed to frown.
so aogry was his air. I sighed as
thought that my father, a man who
counted his wealth by hundreds of thou
sands, should have the meanness to make
his home and family wretched about a nit
iful expenditure in food, aud then as I
turned and looked upon my mother as
ahe stood beside the table, with thoearrer.

ing how she should save a dinner from
our costly breakfast, painlul as the scene
was, its ludicrous side caused me to burst
into irrepressible laughter.
My mother looked at me with astonish
Forgive me," I said, humbly, croinGr
up and kissing her, "forgive me. dear
mother, but I was thinking of that 'rainy
day' we are always saving for, and won
dering if we should not feel happier when
it came. If it ever does come, we shall
stop saving I suppose. Don't you wish it
wero here, mother?
1 he tears came into my mother's eyes.
"You dun't know what vou are talkin"
about, child," she said. "The 'rainy dav'
may come sooner than you think, and it in
not becoming ia you to make sport of
your parents, even if they had not been

"Uut what is the use of bein'r iicb, if
I asked pettishly. "I had ,. rather the

and many times the unhlial thought
crossed my mind that ho had yrown very
disagreeable withfhis increase of wealth.
A great many persous came to see him
on business, whereat I was thankful, for
he was often with them, and little at home.
Iho autumn came, and our summer-
frienda departed. I was sorry to have
them leave, but I was to spend some weeks
with them in the city duiinsr the winter,
and lo procure my bridal wardrobe there,

My faiher had given his consent, and
promised a dashing fortune.
In iho autumn days, when I no lonjrer
had my time and thou'hts absoibed in
other matters, and the household had re
turned to its u mil routine, 1 observed mv
mother's illnedd. She had not complained

mildly, that she was'iftraidshe, Was "going

faded rapidly away, and died. Her death
was the dawn of our "rainy day." Be

"I never rains, but it pours," is a
homely old proverb, but it was a true one
in our case. My mother's death, my
fathers failure, and our poverty, were fol

wealth had drawn around us. My letter
