TWO LITTLE PAIRS OF BOOTS.

What mother heart does not respond to the
sentiment contained therein? How many,

touied place by tho fireside corner, and feci

Two little pairs of k-ofs ta-night
Beforo the the are I'ryh-jj,
Two little pa!:- of tired feet
In truudlo bed ero lying;
Tlio track they leave upon the floor
Jlakts mo feel much like sighing.
' These little hoots with copper toes,
They run the livelong day,
And oft tiuie.i I almost v. i.-h
That they were niikawuy
So tired I ai,i to liear so oft
Their heavy tramp at play.
They wall about the new plowed ground,
Where mud In plenty lies;
They roll it up in marbles round
And hako it into pies;
And then at night upon tho floor
In every shape It drhv.
To-dny I wns disponed to ficold;
But when I look to-night
At those little boots before tlio lire,
YV Ith those copper toes so bright,
I think liow sad my heart would ho
To put them otttcf sight.
Fcr in'a trunk upstairs I've laid
Two sock:i of white and Mnc;
If called to put Uiojo boots away,
O God, what should I do?
I mourn that they are not to-night
Three pairs Instead of two.
I mourn because I thought low nlco
My neighbor 'cross tlio way
Could keep her carpets all tho year
From getting worn and gray ;
Yet well I know she'd smile to own
Homo little boys to-day I
Wo mothers weary get, and worn,
Over our load of care;
But how wo speak of thoso littlo ones
Let each of 113 beware;
For what would our firesides he to-night
If no littlo boots wero there?

A GOOD BEAR STORY.
Last fall a large ciunamon. bear
vfus followed into a small but very
uonso -willow copso by two men
ono armed with a lienry, tho other
with, a bpenccr rifle, ono of them
being my informant, llo 6tatod
(hat they bored him through over
thirty times boforo they succeeded
in killing him, and then not until
bruin had dreadfully mangled my
informant's companion. IIo proved
to bo a very lat ono. When in
that condition tbey aro moro diffi
cult to kill, for tho reason that tho
fat closes tho wound, and thus pre
vents tho rapid flow of blood. An
old hunter, delighting in tho sobri
rjuot of "Daniol .Boone," also last
full got decidedly tho worst of a
fight with ono encountered near
Iiald Mountain, about ton miles
from hero. Mister Bruin was
fiercely rushing upon him with dis
Daniol firmly awaited tho onset
with prcsonted riflo aiming for tho
head, and fired; tho boar at tho
same moment swerved from a di
rect line, and the ball missed its
mark. Boono was now at tho mor
cy of tho infuriated bear, who
reared upon his hind-legs, grasped
tho riflo between his teeth as Boono
tried to aim it down hi3 throat, and
with ono blow of his monstrous
paw knocked him several feet into
tho bushes. Boono lay prono up
on his face; tho ,bear approached,
munched him on tho head and
arms, and thinking him dead, was
departing, but keeping his head
turned toward his prostrate foo,aud
Boono, wishing to quickly get out
of that, incautiously raised his
head, which tho bear pcrcoiving,
ho returned and subjected him to
another munching process in the
leg and shoulders, Boono tho whilo
lying perfectly still, it being Lis
only hope of escape. Tho bear,
again deceived, soon departed.
This time tho impationt and woun
ded hunter restrained his strong
desires, and moved not till ho was
assured thore was no longer dan-
gor. Ihe blow .ho had received
badly disfigured his face, tho cica
trice of a deep gash, extending
from tho eye to tho chin, givc3 evi
dence to this day of tho imminence
of Ins danger. Had he roceivea
the full force 'Of the tromendous
power wielded by: tho paw of this
savage bea3t, his hunting exploits
would have been brought to an in
Weak, faint and bleeding, he
managed to mount his pony, reach

by his companion trying to bind
up his' wounds, muttering eternal
vengeanco against his bcarship,
and all his kith and kin, and swear
ing that they would yet meet and
an opportunity bo aiforded of get
ting even with him. Boono had a
rovolver in hid belt, but tho danger
was so quick and closo upon Lira,
that ho had not timo to draw it.

cipally on fish and berries, aro very
expert fishers, and aro frequently

circumstances ho is much ilooter
than man. Ordinarily I am not in

Are You a Lady?
Tho term lady is an abbreviation
of tho Saxon word "Leofdny,"
which means brcal-giver. The
"lady of manor," accustomed onco
a week to move among tho poor as
an ahnsgivcr, enriching their ta
bles and bearing away their bless
ings. She moved in queenly beau
ty, and to her queenly robo tho
children of tho lowly, looking at
her its if their littlo eyos could
never bo satisfied with seeing.
'J'heirlUllo hearts could never titter,
Low well they loved their bread :tud butter.
But they loved her smiling face
more. They needed not that any
tell them how priceless is a smilo.
It was May-day with thf?m when
ever sho camo among them with
smiles and bread, nnd it was al
ways May-day with her, for tho
smiling poor loved her, and crown
ed her queen of all tho year.
Header aro you a lady? Ara you
a queen among tho poor? Do tho
children of tho poor put a crown
on your head? JJo thoy make your
hair gleam with gem:', or ia it burn
ing with diamonds that tho lingers
of thd poor nover Ret llicro ? Bo
tho poor man's childrou cling to
your gown, aud find a shadow in
its folds? .
Aro your jowels tho grateful
hearts of tho poor? If they are,
then they will never lose their lus
tre, but shino brightor and bright
er tho longer you wear them. I
would rather havo ono grateful tear
from a famished cild I had fed,
than all tho jowels that glisten on
tho queon's brow. I would rather
carry light and joy to ono desolate
home, than call tho kingdom of tho
world my own;
How to Choose a Husband.
If a man wipes his foot on tho
door-mat bofore coming into the
room, you may bo suro ho will
mako a good domestic husband.
If a man, in snuffing tho candles,
puts them out, you may be suro ho
will mako a stupid husband. If a
man puts . a handkerchief on his
knees whilo taking tea, you may
be suro lie will bo a ' prudent hus
band. In the same way, always
mistrust tho man who will not take
tho last pieco of toast, but prefers
waiting lor the next warm batch
it is not unlikely that he will make
a greedy and very selfish husband,
with whom you will enjoy no
'brown' at dinner, no crust at tea,
no peaco whatovor at home.
The man, my dears, who wears
goloshes, and is careful about wrap
ping himself up beforo venturing
into tho night air, not unfrequcnt
ly makes a good invalid husband,
that mostly stops at homo, aud is
easily comforted with slops. Tho
man who watches tho kettlo and
prevents its boiling over, will not
fail, my dean, in his married state,
in exercising tho samo care- in al
ways keeping tho pot boiling. Tho
man who don't take tea, ill treats
tho cat, takes snuff, stands with his
back to tho firo, ia a brute whom I
would not advise you, my dears, to
marry upon nny consideration,
cither for lovo or money; but most
decidedly not fcr lovo. But the
man who, when the tea is over, is
discovered to havo had none, is
sure to make r. good husband. Pa
tienco liko his deserves being re
warded with the best of wives, and
tho best of mothcrs-in law. My
dears, when you meet with such, a
man, do yonr utmost to marry him.
In tho severest winter ho would
not mind going to bed first.
