ters. The birds . were in tho attitude of
fighting, which caused the pretty maiden
to langh.for she said -'that-was what she
was always a-doing ' with Our Jack)' but
bcr mothersaid 'she had good cry over
them' when she placed them on her chest
of drawers in her . bedroom. Tho farmer
whose orchard Jack helped to rob, had sen
out his best ' .wishes,1 and bad received in
rfeturt a basket of ourious shells, which, as
he said, 'made his, parlor . look as fine as

ot tne village. Another June came on in
her chariot of fToseS and a- smell 'of new
hay hung around the picturesque hamlet,
which the carrier's cart was ntirinir two or
inrec pour uetore sunset, with a beauti
ful parrot inan'immensQ cpge, fastened o

hurrahs.of the earlier, and the waving of
his .pat, they know that 'ho had had his
lounce meaning that he was pretty tipsy,
And while he shouted, a voice from inside
the tilted cart kept calling on the horses to
move 'larboard or starboard,' which, they,
like very wise horses, paid no rerrard to.

the cart at last baited before - tho cottnire

wnere uurjack s mother resided; and then
both the carrier and his passentrer called
out lustily: .'Ship ahoy!' Then the dear
old woman came m her spectacles, .think
nghe had brought her another letter;'and
the pretty' maiden canio trippinxr from over
tue way, ready to read it to her; as she had
always done; when a tali handsome sailor,
as brown as a horse chestnut, sprang with
a bound from the cart-shafts; and knock
ingpff, her; spectacles as he threw his
brawny arras round her, exclaimed: ,;Dear
mother; while, 111 a tremulous voice, as
she raised lief eyes to heaven, she uttered
the words: 'My son, my dear son!" and all
tho villagcrssaid; , 'Why. it's -Our 1 Jack!'
and the pretty maiden recrossed - the road,
scarlet with blushes, and with a new and
strange 6ensatjon beating about her heart.
She" had never .dreamed 1 Tie could -have
grown so handsome; so bolJ, and so man:
ly-looking. .As for Our Jack,, he. had not
even noticed her he had no eyes,' no cars,
rio '.w6rds for rtny or.e save' his dear- old
mother.'' The first' interview over, there
was the carrier's cart to unload; and many
a longtnonth had elapsed since the old man
had brought such a load, for' it vols half
filled with tho presonts brought by Our
Jack, who had something for overy body
whoso name ho could remember -coral,'
shells, curious seaweed, stuffed - birds and
fishes, skins, Indian ornaments, beside
more costly articles: for . his ship had ta
ken several prize?,and his own share of the
money amounted . tp a goodly sum, as he
had already risen to the rafik of mate. ' '""
lTirtly to ease his fine ovcrflowmrr heart.
and hide the tears which would: keep full
ing, Our Jick went out into tho littlo gar
den to Joqk at it once more, , '. What num
bers of limes had he recalled that old lilac
tree, with tho bees murmuring ami i its
bloom in Snrinar; that rose-tree covered.
as ho then saw it, witlj Summer roses; the
vine ho had trained on tho. cottare-wall.
and often wondored if- it were ' hunir with
purple grapes in Aiitumnjthe holly, from
which he had gathered crimson burrie in
VVinter-r-and which were all there, though.

how often had they appeared to his 'in

sun setting on the oottagewindow,' the dai
sy-covered held beyond the garden-hedge;
tup old thorn,, with itsmoonhght-polored
May' blossoms, with the singing of ; tho
birds in those golden mornings, had . come
back upon his waking thoughts; and ming
led with his dreams when they lay basking
under batches on the African ; coast, or
riding through the swell of stormier seas.
And while these ; thoughts again passed
through his mind, Tright eyes were watch

a corfier'bf thTJIlind; half sly;" half shy

but withheld by a yomanly seriousness,
which seemed to have deepened , sinoe his

in the garden and tells him all about her'
how she attended her in long illness, and
was like a daughter to her, sittinrr no by
night, and watching over her by dayi and

My Mother Knows Best. . "
A party of little girls stood, talkins be
neath my window. Some' nico plan was
on foot; they were going-into the Woods
and they meant to make onkleaf trimming,
and pick berries, and carry luncheons. , ,0
it wa3 a hrto time they meant to have.
'Now,' said they to' one of the number,
Ellen,' you run home and ask your mother
if you may go. t Tell her- we are all going;
and you must.' ; Ellen ; with her green
cape bonnet, skipped across the way and
went into mo house opposite, bho was
gone some time. "'
The' littlo girls kept looking up to tho
windows very impatiently. ' At lensth the
door opened, and. Ellen came down the
steps. She did not hurry to join her cpm-
panions, and ' they---'cried out, You trot
leave? You are going are you?' Ellen
shook her head, and said her mother could
not lot her go. ,0! cried the children, 'it
too bad! ' .Not gol it- is really unkind in
your mother." 'Why I would f?wX her
let you.' :1 0101' "'I would go whother
or ho.'.-.-.'My mother knows best,' was
Ellen's answer, and it was a beautiful one.
Her lip quivered a very little, for I suppose
she'wanted to go, and was much disap
pointed not to get leave; but she did not
ook angry or . pouting,: and her voioe was
very firm when she said 'My mother knows
best,' ' There are a great many occasions
when mothers' do not see fit to' rive their
children .leave to go - ahd do where and
what they. wish to; and bow often are they
rebellious and pouting in consequence
of it? But this is not the true way. for it
is not pleasing to' God, . The true way is
cheerful acqisssence in your mother's de
cision. ' Trust her, and smooth down your
ruffled feelihgs by the sweet and beautiful
thought, 'My mother knows best.' It will
save you many tears and much sorrow.
It is the gratitude you owe her, who has
done and suffered so much for you. " .

that this case is here taking up the time of

say that it ought to "have been tried before

before 'Squiro Cuddeback, and I leave it
for you to say whether he tells ' the truth
now in saying that I battered hlro.' I was
