[ot that she felt sleepy, but she had just
etermined that she would sleep down
tairs in the new folding-bed in the back
arlor. There were portieres between
de rooms, but these were drawa back
nd hung limp on either side.
The "bed" was a large handbome book
ase, with bric-a-brac on its top shelf.
Irs. Bascomb let it dovn and admired it
rom all sides. It took up all the space
etween 'the wails, except just room I
nough for her to pass to the little table
inder the mirror, where H1oward's revol

he took out of the pocket of her dress,
a the table in a shining heap.
"I wonder if ne marrie- the tall, thin

o herself, and, goinz out into the par
or, picked up the book again, and was
oon deep in the plot.
A noise roused her. She looked at thL
olding doors leading into the hall.
['hey were locked, she knew. t Then she'
urned her eyes toward the back parlor.
"It's the new folding bed getting
sed to being open," she thought, con
cious of a slight exhilaration in the re

With his books slung over his sboalder,
And his little cap in his hanL,'
To take sweet leave of his mother,
To look in her eyes, and stand
A moment beside her, smile.
As he goes through the pretty rule
Of kissiny her twice, "Good-by ! Good- by '
Ere he trudges away to school.
I waited in vain for my darling:
could not believe my eyes
When I sawv him bound over the threshold
Out under the bright spring skies,
So eager to join his comrades
A moment he could not miss,
He had gone away and forgotten
Forgotten my good-by kiss!
It seemed as some cruel monster
Had snatchel him awa- from my a-ms!
My child! Had his mother's petting
No longer its soothing charms?
Alas! I'tis the old, old story
The mother must take her plC3
In his heart, in a far-off corner,
With her dear old yearning face
Shrined dimly within his mem'ry,
While newer, more thrilling ties
Wind in and out 'Imong his heartstrings
An.i cling to his lips and eyes.
Comrades. andsports, and sweetheart,
Now one thing, now another.
Alas for my boy, he's my "baby" no more
He's forgotten to kiss his mother!
