THE OLD HOUSE.
Spassed to-night the old house standing lone
The windows closed, the rooms all dark and
The porch deserted, where, my love, together
We sat in the old sweet days with no one
The autumn night wind bitterly was blowing,
The old trees on the roof their branches
The long grass in the yard was waving sadly,
The tall white pillars in toon moonlight paled
Ah! love, like that old house, my heart is lone
Since those glad times it has been closed and
Sweet memories now long dead are buried in
Old thoughts, old longings I have never told.
But here to-night, with this old house before
There comes to me. a fancy strange and
Suppose those darksome rooms once more
And light and life and love again might meet.
How joyous would the old house ring with
How gay the scene with youth and beauty
And though outside the autumn wind Is sigh
The hearts within are beating gay and light.
So if to me you ever should return, love,
Then you would open my drear heart again,
And with the light of your sweet presence near
My life would smile, forgetting years of pain.

on merely the two-foot top ledge of a
lofty brick wall and gaze coolly down
on the hard pavements, a hundred or
more feet below.
As for going up in alballoon, the very

a chill down my backbone.
I also avoid looking from the higher

All this calne about because I, when
a boy, ventured a climbing feat which,
as I have said, well-nigh put an early
end to my existetnc.e.
I was, maybe, a dozen years old at
the time, as agile as a wild monkey,

sight of the men way, way up on the
cross thrilled us with a queer delight.
One holiday, when the men were not
working, we were there as usual, gaz
ing upward and eagerly discussing the
matter until one of us proposed seeing
how' hard or how easy it was by
climbing up ourselves.
None but boys, of course, would
think of, let alone attempt. such a
hazardous feat, and so, after a few
"dares," up the scaffolding and long
outside ladder to the roof we started. I

WVe all safely gained the edge of the

high as from the street, and there was
a ladder lying on the roof to where the
On that we crawled nme after un

our breath before th ? next mount.
Some of the lads now began to be a
little scared at the prospect before
them, anid in spite of the more daring
ones' ridicule and loud assertions that
we wouldn't fall they wisely concluded
to go no further for the present and
then carefully picked their way back
to the roofs edge and thence down to
the street, from where they stood in a
group watching with frightened faces
the four of us who remainedl.
- u;etting up to the top of the shaky
single plank scaffolding at the steeple'hs
base was an easy matter, and when
we got there we waved our hats and

twice in their anxiety to reach solid
ground, managed to climb down and

Filled with the foolish bravado of
showing off to the audience below, I
led the ascent up the steeple.
The slats, nailed there for men to
climb on, were pretty far apart for lit
tle boys' legs, and we, too, soon found
the task not so easy as it looked. Br',
impelled by the desire for admiration
and thinking what a hero I would be
when the feat was accomplished I kept
on and upward until, after the hardest
of efforts, I found myself on the top

There I clung to rest and see how far
my cq.spanion had got.
To my surprise he, too, had shown
the white feather and left me, and I
saw him just disappearing over the
the root's edge.
Instead of his desertion making me
frightened it served to rouse my de
termination to go still higher, and
without looking down again, for it was
setting me dizzy, I started to surmount
the ball and reach the cross above it.
Climbing inside the rounding ladder,
then crawling between the slats and
climbing outside, but never looking
down while I did it, I pulled myself up
slowly and with much difficulty until,
to my delight. I sat on the great ball
with my little legs on either side of the
huge cross, clinging to it tightly with
one arm and waving my hat with the
other to the spell-bound crowd in the
street below-looking no bigger than

watched it, borne on the wind, descend

Then I thought it wastime for me to

ball, I discovered the well-known fact
that it is a great deal easier to climb up
than to get down. I was utterly stuck.
I made several attempts to get under or
over, but I didn't know how or where
to place my feet. Each time I felt for
a resting spot I found none to stamd
on, and after several hair-breadth es
capes from slipping and falling, which
brought a cold sweat all over me, had
to give up and crawl back to my seat,
and there, twisting my legs and arms
around the cross, hung on.
I then fully realized my awful peril
and bhecame terribly frightened.
I felt weak and sick. My head began
to swim and groiw so dizzy that things
turned black to my eyes. I heard from
below shouts of encouragement and
murmurs of despair, and above all I
heard a scream which I recognized as
my mother's voice.
But I shut my eyes and hung to the
cross, expecting each instant to lose
my hold and dash on the stones hun

their grip and I knew I was fainting

Just then a strong voice sounded close
to me and a man's head showed itself
above the side of the ball where the

it said, "or it'll whip you tdoan inch of
your life." The angry tone scared me
so that, forgetting my danger and even
