THIS YEAR'S NEST.
There are no blrrta to last year's oemt:"
We quote the worda aod sign.
But look! the elm tree lifta to rest
Ita branches 'gainst the sky,
With budding burgeon red aa flatne -Thought
of beauty too great for name.
There are no blrda In last year's nest:
Our bearta are sore and sad.
But wait) within the world's brown breast
Hides lif to make us glad;
And winds that lately blew so chill
Come sweeping cheerily o'er the hill.
There are no birds In but year's nest:"
Eyes droop with unshed tears.
But bark I yon bluebird swells his breast
To pipe a song which cheers.
Turn, heart, to meet the future's rest
There will be birds in this year's nest.
Mary a Uuntingtoa In Uood Housekeeping.
SHE TOOK CARE OF TIIEM.
When the train moved away from the sta
tion Mabel pulled out her little red bordered
handkercbk'f, and cried. There, in the car
window, was Fay, her dearest f rfond, moving
farther away from hor each minute. For a
little while sliocould see Fay's hand and hand
kerchief moving from the w indow, but when
they bad pasMtd out of sight Mabel sobbed
aloud. Riht by tier side stood Fay's mamma.
She, too, Btood watching the little white sig
nal till it was lost in the distance. Then she
turned and held out hor hand to MabeL
"Come, Mabel, "be said in a voice that
trembled somewhat, "Ut us go home now."
As they walked away together armpa
thetic eyes of the bystanders followed them.
One soft hearted baggage man shook bis head
"Hard, isnt itr be said.
The man standing next him nodded. "And
It seams only the other day they were mar
ried I" he answered. "How proud and happy
they were! What was the trouble, do yon
"No," said the other, with a wrinkle of the
eyebrows. "Some uonsense, I guess. Ralph
always was a quick tampered fellow, and she
was an only child, you know. I never
thought they'd separate, though and such a
sweet litUe girl!"
His companion smiled a little. "Did you
notice the otter oner he asked. "That's
Col bom's young hin. Fay and she are as
thick as peas. I til be lonesome for Mabel
Mabel was already lonesome as she walked
way from the station with Fay's mamma.
When she looked up, however, and saw the
tears in Mrs. Fenwick's eyes she winked
very bard to keep back her own tears. She
did not know that the reason Fay had bean
sent away was that Mr. and Mrs. Fenwick
had separated now, but she felt very sorry
for the parents left behind, and had promised
Fay to take good care of them.
"I do not think my mamma is happy,"
Fay had confided to her, "for she cries a
great deal. I am very sorry to go away just
now, only Aunt Lottie wants me so much.
And papa is not very well, I think. Some
times he is cross and things are all different
from what they used to be. You must be
good to them, Mabel, so they will not be too
lonesome for me," and Mabel had promised
that she wouliL
Now she took Mrs. Fenwick's band as she
trudged along by her side.
"I will be your little girl now till Fay
comes back," she said. The sad face smiled a
little as Mrs. Fenwick looked down at the
"Thank you, dear," she said.
Mabel's active little brain had already de
vised a plan.
"Every morning on my way to school I
will stop and see you," she said, after a
minute, "and let me see every afternoon
when I dont have too many lessons, and
when my teacher does not keep me after
school, I will stop in the store to see papa."
"Papal" cried Mrs. Feuwkk.
She had hardly listened to the child, but
started then, for Mallei's papa, poor young
Jack Colburn, had died some years ago.
Mabol laughed merrily.
"If I am your little girl," she said quickly,
"then Fay's papa is mine."
Mrs. Fenwick flushed a littlo.
Mabel talked on without stopping. "Some
times we went into his store coming home
from school," she continued, "and I know
Just where to find him down in the little
office at the end, sitting on a high stool, and
the man outsido always nmilus at us just as
pleasant, and says, "Step right in, littls
Mrs. Fenwick choked a little. How many
times she had been in that littlo office herself
but now she would not go any more.
That evening she was all alone. No tired
young husband came home to tea, and Fay
was far away with Aunt Lottie. Some of
the neighbors thought of the lonesome little
mother, but none ventured to intrude upon
her in her sorrow.
In the morning Mattel came in as Mrs.
Fenwick was eating her breakfast. This
was an every day occurrence when Fay was
at home, for the two children walked to school
"Good morning," said Mabel, smiling.
"Good morning," said Mrs. Fenwick. "Come
here and kiss me."
The little girl did so and rubtied her chubby
little cheek against Mrs. Fenwick's.
"I wish I conld stay with you," she said
sadly, "but I daren't be late at school. It's
vary lonesome without Fay, isnt itr
"Yes," answered Fay's mother, her eyes
filling with tears.
Mabel walked aronnd the room in silence.
"On my way back from school," she said,
finally, "I'll go in and see Fay's papa."
"You're very thoughtful," said Mrs. Fen
wick. Mabel laughed.
"I am taking core of you two till Fay cornea
back," she answered. Then she picked up her
little lesson books and kissed Mrs. Fenwick
"Take good care of 'yourself till I coma
back," she said.
Mrs. Fenwick stood at the window watch
ing the little figure go down the street. She
would turn around every minute and throw a
kiss at the window, as Fay used to da
School was very lonesome for MabeL
Usually Fay sat by her side and at noon they
ate their lunch together under one of the big
trees in the school yard. Some of the other
children came up to Mabol now, but she
turned away from them all with a little sigh.
Had she not promised Fay that sho would be
true to her and take no other girl in her place?
At noon she put her little lunch basket on the
desk before her and ate alone. The afternoon
seamed very long, but when school was dis
missed at last Mabel was the first to leave the
building. Up the street she ran, around the
corner by the green lamp post, and never
stopped till she reached the hardware store,
where Mr. Fenwick had bis little office at the
and. As she pulled back the heavy door and
stepped inside one of the hardware men, who
had a black streak across his forehead, smiled
at her from over the counter and asked:
What do you want, little girir
Mabel smiled too as she walked post him.
Tm going in to see Mr. Fenwick," she
: The man, who hod only recently coma In
the store, tried to stop her. She only laughed
1 "Oh, he will sue me," she answered, and
pushed open the ofllee door. Mr. Fenwick
turned around at the sound. There he sat on
the same high stool, with his books open be
fore him, but there were great rings under
bis brown eyes and Mabel thought he looked
tired. As his eyes foil on the little intruder
"Hello, Mabel," he said.
She walked up beside his high chair and
looked up at him smiling.
"How do you dor she asked, cheerfully.
"How are you getting along T'
Mr. Fenwick smiled.
"Who sent yon heref he asked.
Mabel drew her little form up proudly.
"Nobody sent me," she answered. "I
thought you might lie lonesome without
"So I am," cried Fenwick, getting down
from bis stool and lifting the little girl in his
"Bo you came in to keep me from being
lonesome, did your
"Yes," said Mabel, moving her soft hand
over his dark hair, "I am to be your little
girl while Fay is away. Do you think she
will be gone long r
Fenwick hesitated. He did not care to tell
Mabel that Fay would not come back till It
bad been legally decided which parent should
have charge of bar. ,
"It's very pleasant where she is," be said,
finally; "I shouldn't wonder if she didn't
come back right away." :
' Mabel brushed away a tear.
"It's very hard on me," she said, "but I
suppose it's hard, too, on you and" She
was going to say "on mamma," but thinking
be might not understand finished, "and on
"Yes," said Fenwick, "it fa!"
"Well have to all keep each other from
being lonesome," Mabel sold as Fenwick at
last placed her on one of the stools by bis
For some time the clerks In the hardware
store cast frequent glances through the glass
door at their employer in his office and the
little girl at his side.
"It's Colburn girl," said one of them, "she
used to come in here with Fay Fenwick. I
guess it makes Fenwick feel bad."
When Mabel came out of the office they all
smiled at her. She spoke to Mr. Fenwick as
she closed the glass door.
"I will try and come in to-morrow," she
said, "take good care Of yourstdf."
"All right," answered Fenwick, smiling,
He sat for some time after she bad left
with his head on his arm, so only the dark
locks were seen through the door. The men
ouUide felt sorry for him.
"It's too bad," they said, "and they were
so happy together."
When Mabel reached home she told her
own mamma what she had done. Mrs. Col
burn kissed her.
"All right, darling," she said. "Surely,"
she thought, "it can do no barm, and possi
bly the child may comfort them a little."
So every morning Mabel called on the for
lorn little mother, who grew thinner and paler
each day, and every afternoon a second stool
was placed by the side of Mr. Fenwick for bis
little visitor. All the hardware men looked
forward to her calls with pleasure. One gave
her a pencil once, with a big rubber on the
end which left a block mark after it every
time she used it. But Mabel always smiled
on the rough fellow, because he did not know
about the rubber, probably.
One afternoon she came into the store in a
hurry and ran into Mr. Fenwick's office, all
out of breath.
"What is the matter P he asked. She held
up a little three cornered envelope. It was
tinted pink and on the tack was a picture of
a tiny white dove with a letter tied around
"Seel" cried Mabel, "here ismy letter from
Fenwick took it eagerly. It was Aunt
Lottie's handwrittiug on the outeide, but
when be took out the little pink sheet bis
heart throbbed, for he knew that bis own
little girl had written that.
"Read it," said MabeL
It was written well for a 10-year-old little
girl, and hud cost Fay much time and
"Dear Mabel (he read), it is a very nice
place here. Aunt Lottie is very good.
The conductor was very good. I hope
you don't eat dinner with Annie Dobson.
How are my dear papa and mamma? I want
to see them very much and I want to see
you. I think I will come home before long.
Write soon. Fat Fxswick."
Ralph Fenwick put the paper back in the
envelope. Then he kissed it.
'When you answer this," he said to Mabel,
"you tell Fay that papa kissed her letter."
"Somebody told you," she said, "Fay's
mamma kissed it too,"
Fenwick's color deepened somewhat.
"Did she see it toof he asked.
"Why, yes," said Mabel, "when I went to
school this morning."
"Does she know you come herel" said Fen
wick. Mabol laughed again.
"Why, yes!" she answered.
"And is she very lonesome r said Fenwick
"You both ask me the same questions,"
said MabeL "When I go to see my new
mamma she says: 'Do you think Fay's pap
is very lonesome f
"Is that so!" cried Fenwick.
"I am going to see her now," she said after
"Whor asked Fenwick.
"Who've we been talking about f said
Mabel, smiling, "my new mamma? She had
a headache this moruiug, and thought I'd
go twice today."
"That's right," said the new mamma's hus
band, and then after a iauae, "Was she very
"I think she was," answered MabeL
Fenwick ran his fingers through his dark
"Suppose," said Mabel, "you send her some
thing by me."
"Whatr cried Fenwick.
"Don't you remember when Fay and I
took the tin candlestick, and how pleased she
Fenwick walked around the little office,
"Yes, yes," he said, "I remember."
"You might send a pair of scissors," con
tinued Mabel, "only that Isut a good sign.
Something awful might happen."
"Oh I well then I wont send those," said
Fenwick. with a faint smilv
"I suppose flowers are what tho sick should
have," said Mabel, "but you don't have flow
ers in your store."
Fenwick paused in his walking. A bright
spot Imrned in each cheek.
"You wait here," he said, "and I'll be back
in a minute."
He took his hat from behind the door and
went out of the store. Presently be returned
with a little bunch of vloleSe in his hand. He
looked somewhat confused then. "Here are
your flowers," be said, holding them out to
her. "Give them to her it you want to."
Mabel took them with a cVy or delight.
"Violets!" she said, "and I know a nice lit
tle verso to say when I grre them to her.
Wouldn't that be nicer
"Very nice," said Mr. Fenwick.
Mabel ran away Joyfully. She could hardly
wait now. Every little while she lifted the
fragrant flowers and smclled of them.
"They ore different from our little vilets,"
she thought; "bigger, with more leaves, and
they smell more."
' She saw Mrs. Fenwick hi the window as
the reached the house and ran in without
"Seel" she cried, holding out the little bou
quet. "English violets!" said Mrs. Fenwick. She
raised them to her nostrils. English violets
had tender associations for her.
"They are yours," said Mabel, putting ber
hands behind her. "Fay's papa sent them,
and he said he thought it would be very nice
to say this verse with themi
The rose Is red.
The violet blue,
Io you love me
Aa I love you?"
Mrs. Fenwick did not move her head. The
color slowly mounted to her forehead. Then,
with a sudden movement, she raised the
flowers to her lips and kissed them.
"I thought you'd like 'em," said MabeL
Then, suddenly noticing that the tears were
running down Mrs. Fenwick's cheeks, she ran
and threw her arms around her."
"Dont cry," she said. "Dont, please dont"
Mrs. Fenwick drew the little face down to
hers and kissed it.
"Did he really send thenar she asked.
"Of course he did," said MabeL
Mrs. Fenwick was silent a minute. Then
ahe detached one of the violets from the
"Mabel," she asked; "are you very tiredr
Mabel looked out of the window.
"Not so very," she answered.
"And win you do something for mer
"Of course I will," said the child smiling.
"Then take this back to your new papa and
tell him I sent it."
Mabel took the flower reluctantly.
"Only oner she questioned.
"One is enough," said Mrs. Fenwick,
Her mind went back to the time when she
first sent Mr. Fenwick a violet, a token of
ber love for him. After the little girl bad
gone she went to the door and watched her
go down the street. Her heart throbbed
loudly, but she held the fragrant violets
closely clasped in her hands.
Mr. Fenwick had not been himself since
Mabel had departed. The books lay open be
fore him, but he paid no attention to them.
He bad hardly changed bis position when
Mabel returned. 4 She was very tired, but
held out the flowers to him with a smile.

tr ifle ashamed at the gift she was "bringing,

Mr. Fenwick's heart gave a great bound.
"Who didf he cried, and almost choked in
"My new mamma," answered MabeL, a lit
tl frightened at his emotion. "She liked the
AVwers very much and kissed them and told
m 3 to bring this back to you."
"God bless yon, child," cried the man,
catching up his hat and picking up the little
girl in his arms. Up the street they went,
farter and faster. Mabel did not dare ask to
be left at her own house.
Mrs. Fenwick saw them coming. She
sfctrted toward the door, but it had already
been opened. Malel was put npon the floor
and Ralph Fenwick and his wife stood mo
tic nleas in each other's arms. Mabel walked
ar wnd the room fueling a trifle ill at ease.
Finally she returned to speak to them and
sn iled bravely, though there were large
teiirs in her eyes.

Ella Wheeler's Husband..
- 121a Wheeler Wilcox's husband has a fine
black mustache, is inclined to baldness, and
is heavy set. I met him recently bowling
do-vn Broadway, looking the ideal I-am-at-hoine-any

wl- h anything but an ethereal dreamy gaze
fix m his eyes. He is on the road a great
deti selling goods, while his wife la at home
writing poetry. As a story teller be ranks
big h with the members of his profession, and
his fund of humor is much greater than bis
wile's. He carries in his traveling valise
twmty-eeven pictures of his wife taken by
dif'eront photographers during her rise to
pot'tical fame. The resemblance of the pic
tures to each otber and to the original can
eatily be imagined by a remark made to him
by a fellow drummer In Cincinnati Mr. Wil
cox put the twenty fleven photos on the man
tel board of his room in order to remind hbn
of lis absent spouse. When the other drum
mer entered, he exclaimed: "Well, Wilcox,
I must say that you have the pictures of
many deuced fine looking girls; what towns
do they live in?" New York Graphic.

DIRT rots the fibre and invites the moth." To cleanse and
purify blankets thoroughly, wash them with Ivory Soap.
Trofessor Cornwall, of Princeton College, says the Ivory Soap
is an excellent Laundry Soap, of great purity and more than average
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getling it.
