and enjoy it. This is something
that'no nan can do.
She can sharpen a lead-pencil,
if you give her plenty of ime and

A SAD CAsM.-A Western paper
is in receipt of a short story from
Chicago, which is so full of misery
that there is no fun in it anywhere
but it is told as a warning to ladies
to be careful'how they accuse ser
vant girls of crime. A man from
the ( hicago carpet coipany was
sent to a house recently to put
down.a carpet, and in the work it
was necessary to remove a large
mirror, and in doing so a beauti
ftil breast-pin fell upon the carpet,
which the man gave to the lady of
the house. Instead of a smile of'
thankfuiiess from the lady, which
the man expected, the lady fell
down on her knees sobbing
and praying, and asking God to
forgive her for her injutice. The
man was paralyzed, and thought
the woman was crazy, but she ex
)lained to him, as she put oin her
cloak to go down town, that a ser
vant girl had been accused of
stealing the breast-pin, and was
serving a terim ill th(! penitentiai'y
The woman hustled down to her
Iisbaud's oftle- and showed the
pin, and iii an hour, work was be
gun to release the poor girl from
prison, where she had been for ma
ny months. W0ho Can picture the
sufferings of that poor, honest
girl, in prison, serving a sentence
for a crime which she did not comn
mit, and who can realize the ago
ny of' the woman who sent her
there ? The paper trusts that the
poor girl will have beeni released
before thlis is read, and that tile
w ealthy woman will amply reward
her for the suffering she hlas en
dured. Such cases are too fre
quent in this world, where inno
cence is made to suffer on circum
-Absence dimnishes the or'dinar'y
passions and ilreases thne great oneCs,
as the wind exting'uishes thne candle
and hibrhts the fire.
