A SCHOOL TEACHER'S STORY.
One of the Tragedies of the Great
BY LIZZIE A. S. CHESTER.
From the Springfield Republican.
Had any one asked nie if I was acqnalnt-
ed with Emilr. 1 should nave replied,
"Very well, indeed." Emily and I bad
taught in the same school for nearly two
years. . We had sat at the same table and
oocu'i'ed the same room. We had inter
changed oar thoughts and opinions freely.
We had read, studied and rang together.
We had sometimes droned alike. Emily
had told of the neople whom she bad known
and I had acquainted ber with the few who
bad ever lighted or darkened my pawwny.
We were what the girls in oar school call
ed very intimate friends. Yet it casie
about one evening that I lound I had not
known Emily at all.
I have since sometimes wondered bow
many of those people whose paths have at
different times ran close by my own, and
whose words and deeds have been inter
linked with mine, I know much about
When I remember that to know what a
person is now, without considering how
circumstances have wrought on his char
acter, or to judge one by his external acta,
- ignoring the inward movings, the tempta
tion8w4he trials, the failures, or successes,
that have given birth or shape to the out
ward act, is to loiiow unperneuu oDserva

knew that her home had once been among
the hills of one of our western counties. 1
knew well how that home looked, for km
ily had ottaa described it to me. She was
. much in the habit of calling my attention
to little story and a hall cottages with plain
yards, and pointing out their similarity to
the one which had been her home. She
spoke of it as her's still.
"Sea, that is like our house tn the porch
over the front door," or "that grape-vine
trellis in the yard is like ours," she would
I knew that Emily had never had broth
er or sister, and that her mother had died
three or four years before I met her. Stand
ing under the trees in one of those rare
June twilights when the invisible world,
where thorn wait who have gone before,
seems very near, Emily had talked with
me of her mother, and pictured the peace
ful closing of her life lor me- 1 knew that
herjfather was living, and that he wrote to
her sometimes, bat she never mentioned
the contents of his letters. She spent her
vacations in the little room which she and
I shared during term time, or she visited
here and there among friends, tier father
boarded, she said.
It was one Sabbath evening that I learn
ed more; the evening of the Sabbath pre
ceding the great October freshet. We had
attended two services in church that day
and afterward been reading. As the dark
ness came on we closed the books and sat
thinking. The rain beat heavily and drear
ily against our windows and on the plank
side-walk below. The trojs in the yard
cnwiied and creaked, and gave forth all
those varying Sjoornfal sounds, which the
east wind has always a trick of playing on
half-decayed old trees. Oar room was
damp and chilly. We had built a fire, hop
ing to make it more cheerful, but the fire
wouldn't burn. We ooaxed it with bits ot
paper, kerosene, and matches. It went
oat persistently. The stove was a new-
fashioned one, and Emily aud I are aocu
stomed to old-fashioned thingB. Finally
we gave up the fire and wrapped omr shawls

the low stove hearth, and Emily was on

and be children when we are at home.
Emily's favorite seat is on the floor by my
side, sometimes leaning her head back
swamst my knee.
We had not spoken for some minutes
that evening, when 1 became convinced
that she was softly crying. Tears were
unusual in our room. I put my hand down
to her, and she grasped it tightly; then
fumed and laid her lace i-i my lap sob-

I could not ask her what her trouble was:
but I laid my hand on her forehead and
stroked back her hair. She understood
"The wind, the rain, and the dark al
ways brine it all back, and I can't help it.

the wind was driving tue rain most nerce-

to going home in the rain, and we sat to

at the Storm, as people aiwayo """"

been struck iu the thigh and died from loss

to do something to staunch the flow oi

He was as neat a corpse as you ever saw.
His soars were still on his hetis, his kept

clothes bad been opened aliout bin breast
by some one in searvJi of valuables, 1 snp
mse, and there were articles scattered
about showing that he had been carofnl in
camp to be neat Among them were a
tooth-brush and a box of tooth-powdor.
The dust from the Paris road had pow
dered him. His features were not swollen
or distorted, but clear and colorless, and
his friends would have recognized lutu
quickly as in life.

of horror in their appearance that I must

Some of the most terrible ol the plcturus
of death were among the fallen horses.
There were expressions of unutterable fear
and suffering in their dead faces. The
wild eyes, the expanded nostrils, tuo open
lips displaying the full length ef the teeth.
In Homo of the faces of these animals every
hair seemed to tell a tale of terror. The
attitudes of the horses in death were as
various aud faxciuating in tbeir internet as
those of the meu. Oh for an artist to have
made a study of them I Here is a grand
bay home shot through by an unexploded
shell, his left shoulder rruahed and a bole
in hm 0:uik ball aa large as tne neaa oi a
flour barrel. Stricken down with bis
under him and his chin in the duat, there
was in his strange, eye and Rtart-
lini? grin the snggeotion of a
horrible shriek. Here was another, shot
through the head and prone on his side.
In his struggles he bad torn the clover sod
with his feet an1 the bloody trom, mown
from his nostrils, spoke of the desperate
aoonv of his dvina breath. A beautiful
