So dir.zy star forgests to hunt Its goal.

Serene as on tho eve when first it came,

And steady spin our planet round her

So little do they miss a strenuous soul,
So easy spare a noblo, vanished lininel
Fuel yon no stir or pity, selfish Earth.
Time your, white clasp can lock him from

Oil, mighty Mnthor, yon that gave him birth.
How still within your folding arms he lies!
A tired child, held to your sacred breast,

Yet heard ho not tho people's cry? nor hears?
f'ho tender passion of a sorrowing Stato,
lournlng as nations mourn their good and

Norfelt, n.or ftH'l ho now our aching tears?
Too soon oMdrttriou take up thy sullen shears
To clip his gracious days, ungracious Fate?
And wo lor whom he wrought lament too

The generous heart strong with ungenerous
Jeers. -
Oh, In that land wherounto he ha passed;
This FrleuH.whoso strong flue fiber snapped

Do human plaudits comfort him above?

CHAPTER XVI.
Mr. Lorenzo had hardly clos
ed his sentence until he had
gone off to see the doctor about
the removal of the boy, for he
could not endure the idea of an
expense on the account of re
maining at the Deacon's.
Dr. Hoy told Mr. L. that the
boy was not in a condition to
be removed and should remain
quiet for a few days, lest hem
orhage of the lungs should set
in again, and endanger the
child's life.
"What did the Doctor say?"
inquired Mrs. fcorenzo, as her
husband enteredthe room.
"lie gave me no satisfaction.
I think I know a thing or
two." ' " V"""'
The fact was the Dr. did not
"give Mr. L.sasacJo?"becauso
ho did not tell the selfish man
to remove the boy,and this was
one of Mr. L's. ways of "slip
ping around" the truth, just
like a great many persons do
who want to tell a lie and re
serve a place to get out at.
"What have you decided on?"
said Mrs. L.
"'Decided on,' why, I am
going to take Will over home
right away, and run tho risk of
it hurting him."
"I object, husband, for I fear
it will not do to remove him so
soon.
"I ain't afraid
of it harming
anybody, so I shall get Mr.
Crocko's buggy and we will go
home right away. I wonder
how much he will charge me
for the use of his team and
buggy?" .
Thus this close fisted , man
made everything turn on the
amount it would cost him per
sonally without regard to ro
sults, just like every other cru
el, selfish wretch of a' human
being.
All this had taken place be
tween a little after four o'clock
in the morning, and a late
breakfast, seven o'clock. While
this parry was going on, Mrs.
C. had prepared a good morn
ingmeal, and came in to invite
the folks out to breakfast. "Oh
no, saw Mr. L., "we shall go
home in a few minutes and get
breakfast there."
"But we are not going to per
mit you to leave after any such
fashion, so come right along to
breakfast, and beside all that,
Willio is not able to remove."
So saying tho good lady took
Mrs. Lorenzo by the arm, and
both started for the dining
room. "Como on Mr. Lorenzo"
said the kind'hearted wife.
Slowly the odd man filed out
after the. women, and when he
ate, it was very daintily for four
he would have to pay the more,
until the good joking Deacon
1
remarked, "eat all .you wany
all the same price ;" when rMrl
L.; began to quicken- his pace
and finished by "making a' ml
hand." I
iRrpnlrfiisf nvnr. f lia irnnd mail
ofjthe house led in prayers, and
prepared to render such assist
ance as needed, for it was
known that Mr. L. had resolv
ed on taking Willie home.
j The buggy was duly halted
at the front gate,and Willie car
ried out and put inside,and Mr.
Crocko .drove the -.horses as
carefully as possible; although
reminded by Mr. .Lorenzo to
hurry up a. little,' for there was
a fear that the Deacon would
.1
consume to much time, and Lo
renzo have to pay for it.
By-and-by they reached the
residence of Mr. Lorenzo, and
Willie was laid on . his little
bed, pale and sick. Mr. L. now
went out to see the Deacon
about the charge.
"How much do you charge
me for your help?" said Mr. Lo
renzo. "Nothing at all, nothing at
all sir. If that boy had staid
with me, and your whole fami
ly caring for him, for six weeks
I should not have made a
charge. I don't 'count cents'
at times of sickness and such
affliction," said the' Deacon.
The hasty Mr. L. -was doumb
founded to think he had put
himself to so much trouble to
save expenses, and he could
have had the privilege of even
"six weeks," stay all for noth
ing if he had only known it,
"IIow much I have missed"?
might have been read in his
mind as he returned to the
house.
Returning to the housrJng
wife asked Mr. Lorenzo how
much the Deacon charged
him.
"Nothing," gruffly replied the
disappointed man, for he was
both pleased and displeased
with tho result of things.
Mr. L. had gone out to at
tend to some work, and was
very busy when his wife has
tened to the barn, calling him
by name.
"Husband, busband co at
once lor Dr. Hoy, uon t stop
ono moment."
"Can't I finish currying
this
horse?" remarked Mr. L.
If
TO BE CONTINUED.
Years aero twentv-nve or
thirty before Nashville was
connected by rail with the out-
side world, the principal travel
to and from tnat city was on
steamboats. In those days
Ben P. Egan used to run A. L.
Davis, a disreputable craft of
the hind-wheel persuasion.' One
trip he was approached by an
ugly customer, whose left eye
the othQr was out, and gone
glimmering just twinkled
through the swollen black, and
thusly interviewed :
"Say, stranger, are you the
capt'n of this 'ore ship?"
"I am, Sir," Ben replied.
"What will you have?"
"Well, I just want to go
down to Sraithfeni. What will
you charge mo' for the ride?"
"Ten dollars, sir. Give the
money to the clerk, and he'll
give you a ticket."
This Henry County represen
tative then indignantly said :
"Luak 'ere, Mr. Capt'n, I
reckon you are mistaken in the
man. I'm not in the river bus
iness, and don't want to buy
your old boat."
A Bishop, fond of hunting,
being rebuked that the apos
tlos never huuiod,replied, "No

A True Story.
The Story of an Irish Girl.

'Poor : Kathleen ' O'Neil 1 had

shed drawing-room, and she

iuwng '; of one of the blue,
irklinV Irish' lakes. Bet - in

vmhtier apron to her eyes, and
r ruddy cheeks deluged with
tdivs.
"I couldn't help it, ma'am,"
sib sobbed, "but it puts me in
'ud of home."
I'fHoine!" scornfully echoed
m
a. Arnott. "IWhomel A

it you ever saw such a spot
as
that!"
r'Deed did I then, ma'am,"
an
fewered Kathleen, and many a
time
For we lived beyant them
same green shores, when "
There, then, that will do,"
said Mrs. Arnott coldly. "I do
noil care about any reminis-
cerices."
Kathleen did not understand
the five syllabled word, but her
quick nature comprehended the
bitter, sarcastic tone. The tears
were frozen in their fount the
scarlet spots glowed in either
cheek.
"She looks down on me, as it
I were a dogl" Kathleen thought
to herself. "And sure it's the
same flesh and blood God has
given to both of us. How would
she. 1JK it, I wonder, if itjwas
her m a strange land, and never
a kind word spoken to her
0, but if I could see the mother,
and little Ilonora, and Teddy,
that's but a baby yet! but the
wide blue sea rolls between us,
and it's all alone I am 1"
Poor Kathleen ! tho sense of
desolation came upon her with
sickening power just then, as
she stood belore tho picture of
he sweot Irish lake, with the
wet splashes ou her cheek, and
Mrs. Arnott's cold, hard voice
sounding in her ears.
"It's a great trial to be obliged
to do with these wild, untutored
Irish."
Kathleen was just bringing
up the tray, and Mrs. Arnott's
words sounded distinctly in her,(
ears, as she stopped on the top
step to get breath.
"Of course, my dear," said
Mrs. Tudor Audor, sympathet
ically. "They are bad thor
oughly and systematically bad,
the whole lot of 'em. I'd send
them all back to their native
country, if it lay in my power.
"I wish thev were all at the
bottom of the sea, said Mrs.
Arnott sharply, and then, per
haps, wo should have a chauce
to employ Swedish or Chinese,
or somebody that would at least
earn their bread. Is that you
Kathleen? Why don't you
bring the ice-water in at once,
instead of standing dawdling
there ?"
Kathleen obeyed, but the
dreary, homesick feeling that
thrilled through all her pulses
can hardly bo described.
"If I was only at home again,"
eho thought, "in bonny Iroland,
where the poorest and the mean
est have a kind word for each
other. They scorn and hato mo

a mere closet of a room, without
light or .ventilation, . teat'1 she
occupied. MrsArjiott thought
any place good enough for Kath
leen O'Neill j the bed was hard
and insufficiently provided with
clothing, . but as Mrs. Arnott
carelessly observed, Jt waB, ; no
doubt,' a great deal better than
what she had been accustomed
to at home. .And she had just
paid Messrs, Isaacson & Co. a
thousand dollars apiece for drap
ing her drawing-room windows
with -lace and broCatelle so, of
course,', there was nothing left
lor such a trifle as the comfort

' 'Is Kathleen sick, mamma?"
asked little Julian Arnott one
day; "phe cries so much, and
she looks so white."
Mr. Arnott, a stout-built,
good-hearted man, of forty or
thereabouts, glanced up from his
newspaper.
'What does tho child mean,
Lucretia ?" he asked of his wife.
"I hope you look a little after
your girls."
"Of course I do," said Mrs.
Arnott, sharply. "Kathleen is
only moping. She's a silsnt,
sullen thing, at best, aud I shall
discharge her next month. Na
talie has a cousin who wants
the place."
"Has she any friends in this
country Kathleen, I mean ?"
"Not that I know of."
"Seenis to me I wouldn't dis
charge her, then. It would be
rather hard,, unless she has ac
tually been guilty of some fault."
Mrs. Arnott bit her lip.
"Gentlemen understand noth
ing of the. management of
household," said she, tartly.
"These girls haven't our sensi
tive natures, either; they are
quite naeil, W kuookiugarouad
the world. Are you going down
town now?"
"Yes."
"I wish you would stop and
ask Dr. Hart to stop here this
morning. Little Clarence
feverish."
"Anything serious ?"
"I hope not," the mother an
swered, "but I always like to
take these things in time."
Dr. Hart looked over Clar
ence's little crib ; he involun
tarily uttered the name of
malignent type of fever just then
raging in the city,
"I wish you had sent for me
before ?" said he ; "but I fear
is toii lata to secure the exemp-
tion
with
may
of your little one. But
constant care I think "we
save the little fellow. You
have a good nurse ?"
"An excellent one, I can
trust Natalie as I would my
self." "You are fortunate," said the
doctor.
He had scarcely closed the
hall-door behind him, when
Natalie came to her mistress.
"My month expires to-mor
row, madam will you pay me
my wages and let me take my
departura at once?"
"But. .Natalie, tuo baby
siok "
"One's first duty is to one's
self, madam. I would not risk
tho infection for twice what you
pay me."
And Natalie packed, her
trunk and departed without
even coming into the nursery
to bid little Clarence good-by.
The cook was tho next
cive warning., Matilda, the
laundress, took herself off with
out any such preliminary cere
mony.
, 'I know what the fever is,'
said , Bhe. , "And missus can't
expect we're going to lose
lives for a bit of money.
j "I'm going,, too," said
seamstress. "Mrs. .Arnott
wouldn't have lifted her fingor
if we'd all loon dying," and
a

a
it
is
to
believe in doing to others as
they do to me." , . ; v. ,
And almost before she knew
it, the stricken, mother was left
alou by tbtl bedside of her suf
fering babe. , Neighbors cross
ed on the, other . side of the
street, like priests , and Levites
of old ; friends contended them
selves by sending to inquire;
even hired. nurses avoided ..the
malignant fever. i ;v; .,
;"Is there no one to help me?"
she moauedjWrjnging her white
jeweled hands together "Have

'"'She toned at - sonw fancied
sound Kathleen O'Neill was
at her side, busied in arranging
the table.
"I thought you, too,had gone,
Kathleen," she cried out.
"Sure, ma'am, what should I
be going for," asked Kathleen,
simply, "and the bits of child
here sick, and you in the sore
trouble? . I nursed the' little
brothers and sisters through the
fever at home, and I know just
what needs to be done."
And she took little Clarence
in her arms with a soft tender
ness that went to the mother's
heart.
"Are you not afraid, Kath
leen?" .
".What would I be afraid of,
ma am;
Isn't the good God's
sky over us all, whether it's
the green banks of Ireland, or
the church steeples in this
great, confusin city? Oh,ma'am,
don't fear, He'll not take the
bonny baby from us."
"All Mrs. Arnott's children

was prostrated by it and
Kathleen watched over ev

incoherently, ; ie first doy that

about her wasted form, "oh
Kathleen, I don't deserve this."
"Sure, ma'am, if we all ha(J
our deserts in this world, it's
sorry place it would be, I am
thinkin'," laughed Kathleen.
"But, Kathleen, I was cruel
to you fo heartless."
"We won't talk of it, ma'am,
dear," said Kathleen, evasively.
"But say just once that you
forgive me?" pleaded the lady,
once so haughty.
"I forgive you, ma'am
free as the sunshine!" Kathleen
answered, softly.
"And you'll stay with me al
ways and be my friend, Kath
leen?"
"If God wills it ma'am."
"And Mrs. Arnott put up her
lip to kiss Irish Kathleen
fresh, cool cheeks.
The years that have passed
since then have made men and
women of the little people that
Kathleen nursed through the
fever, and strangers who visit
in Mrs. Arnott's house scarcely
know what to make of the
plump, comely, middleaged wo
man who moves about the
house, apparently as much
A. V
home in it as the mistress her
self who is always consulted
about everything, and trusted
with all secrets.
"Is she a housekeeper, or
servant, or a relation?" some
one once asked, and Mrs. Ar
nott replied: "She is my true
and trusted friend, Kathleen
O'Neil." .
