The wind was blowing over he moors.
And the sun shone brigt t upon heather and
On the gravestones hoary at d gray with age

And it streamed through e. window in.

A lonely room which once held three
Bat a woman at work with a busy pen;
Twas the woman all England praised Just then;
But what for its praise cared sher
Fame cannot dazzle or flattc ry charm
One who goes lonely day tj day
On the lonely moors, where the plovers cry.
And the sobbing wind as it b nrries by
Has no comforting word to say.
So, famous and lonely and si d, she sat.
And steadily wrote the morning through:
Then, at stroke of twelve, la id her task aside
And out to the kitchen swift ly hied.
Now what was she going t o dor
Why, Tabby, the servant, w la "past her work,"
And her eyea had failed at her strength ran low,
And the toils, once easy, bail one by one
Become too bard, or were left half done
By the aged bands and slew. .
80, every day, without sayir g a word.
Her famous mistress laid down the pen.
Re kneaded the bread, or aik ntly stole
The potatoes away in their t.'ooden bowl.
And pared them all over a jain.
She did not say, as she mist t have done,
"The less to the larger must give way.
Theso things are little, while I am great;
And the world will not alwa -s stand and wait
For the words that I have to say."
No; the clever fingers that ? fought so well.
And the eyes that could pierce to the heart's
She lent to the humble task-it and small;
Nor counted the time as lost, at aU,
80 Tabby were but contend
Ah, Genius burns like a bio: ing star.
And Fame has an honeyed urn to fill;
But the good deed done for love, not f amn,
Like the water cup in the V aster's name.
Is something more precious still.

Hannah More records in her diary a story
which she calls ridiculous, but which afforded
her a deal of pleasure. Once wbeu she was
visiting the Garricks, tba great actor, after
dinner, read her last poem with all his pathos
and all bis grace. "I think," says the good
old maid, "1 never wai so ashamed in my
life; but he read it so superlatively that I
cried like a child. Only to think what a
scandalous thing, to cry at the reading of
one's own poetry." But it seems Mrs. Gar
rick cried too, and made many apologies for
crying at - her husband' reading. "And,"
Hannah continues, "she jot out of the scrape
by pretending she was touched at the story,
and I by saying the same thing of the read
