To garner a nation's brood.

For by them the world is fed.
Though bunks may fnil and in ruin's g :lo
Every speculator reel.
Tho fruitful soil is the bank of Uod,
Ami its wealth no kuuvo can steal.
When the rain and mm tln-ir good work have
In the gfuinficlda fur and wide,
Lo, tho reaper bunds with uraicd hands
Through the toppling harvests glide,
And the swaths of gold from tho orudles rolled
(?il<l the soil by tho scythes laid bare
As ridges of mist by the sunlight kissed
Olid the broader fields of uir.
Tho binders lithe who follow tho ficytlio
For the treasures it crops und leaves
As with laugh und song thoy hurry uloug
Leave a wake of yellow sheaves,
But the happiest scene is the lust, I ween,
When over the yielding loam,
'Die lust loud is bcruo from tho fields closo
For then is the "Harvest Home."
Uh, wore I the lord of acres broad
With tho strength my land to till,
I'd follow tho plow with u beaded brow
And renounce the "gray goose quill."
For of fields or thought, though with patience
The harvest oft is spurned,
But the needed Held with a solid yield
Pays for every furrow turned.

Jean Rhodlo, first violin at thoAmblgu
Coilllquo, was one of those obscure individ?
uals, regular as a clock in their habits,
who lead a reserved kind of existence and
whose ambition is limited to maintaining
themselves in tho position which brings
Ilium In their daily bread.
lie occupied a modest apartment in the
Hud Nollet, IJatignollus, which was kept
in order by Marianne, a worthy girl, who
from long service bad become us method?
ical in her ways as her master. She knew
exactly at what hour the latter would re?
turn from tho theater, and his supper was
always ready to the minute.
Olio night, however, his customary chop
was missing. So was Marianne. The next
day passed, and the next, and still Mari?
anne failed to put in an appearance. What
had become of her? Ho could not even
conjecture. His vexation gave place to un?
easiness, and his uneasiness to alarm.
On the .second day he resolved to qucs
tiou tho concierge. Tho amiable Cerubus
gruffly replied that lie was not her keeper,
that ho had not seen tho girl, and, for that
matter, diil not want to.
.lean lihodlo was by degrees getting ac?
customed to the disagreeable necessity of
having to take his meals In a restaurant,
when nn incident occurred that furnished
n fresh subject of discussion to the gossips
of the street, who were, beginning to forget
all about Marianne's mysterious disap?
line morning the concierge read the fol?
lowing paragraph in one of the daily pa?
"Tho body of i\ fair haired and some?
what stout, young woman, evidently a
servant, was taken out of the Seine at
Courbovolo yesterday. It was attired in a
servant's white frilled cap, black bodice,
pink fichu, green skirt and thick laced
shoes. In the pocket a purse containing 2
francs 40 centimes was found. There being
nothing by which the body could be iden?
tified, it was sent to the morgue."
Seized with a dark presentiment, the
concierge clambered on to an omnibus and
went to tho morgue. There upon one of
the slabs ho recognized, or thought he
recognized, the servant of Jean ltliodio.
Although the features were decomposed
hy the long sojourn of the body ill the
water, the concierge, with the perspicacity
habitual in those who exercise his profes?
sion, had no doubt about t he matter. A
suspicion which he had long entertained
was thus suddenly confirmed?Kltodlo had
murdered his servant. The thing was now
to get the murderer to confess.
Before sotting t he formidable machinery
of justice in motion ihc concierge brusque?
ly stopped his lodger as the latter entered
the house and thrust the paragraph under
Ills nose. The effect expected was ob?
tained?the violinist incontinently col?
lapsed with a smothered groan.
The next, day Ltliodio was taken before
the examining magistrate, when an inci?
dent frequent enough in criminal proce?
dure occurred. The accused was mi trou?
bled that he did nothing but contradict
himself and was utterly unable to account
for bis lime on the day of the girl's disap?
Two months Inter be was brought up
for trial before tho assize court. There
was no material proof, but, the circum?
stantial evidence against him was over?
Thii ntlnrnoy general insinuated that
the callous wretch?indicai ing the accused
?could have but one reason for wishing
to get rid of the young servant who had
lived with him for a certain number of
years. Ho was no doubt intimate with the
girl, said the man of law, and went on to
expatiate at length to the jury upon the
probable consequences of t he said intimacy,
amply sufflciunt in itself, for that matter,
to account for the crime.
This argument produced a profound im?
pression Upen the minds of the 13 good
men and true of the jury, who had been
previously greatly moved at, the sight of
the clot hing of tho victim, spread out on
the table of the court as pieces a convic?
The president of the court, who was
somewhat of a novice, floundered through
the Interrogat ion, mystifying with himself
the prisoner to such an extent that the
latter began toask himself at last whether
he was not really guilty of the crime with
whioh he was charged. A little more and
ho would have confessed to it.
The counsel for the defense was little
better than tho president of the court. He
did inoru harm than good to his client.
The consequence was that, although a long
string of witnesses testified ad nauseam to
the .qualities of heart and mind of the
prisoner, the jury, presided over by a pork
liutchor, brought, in a verdict of guilty up?
on the chief count of the indictment. As
regards the quest ions of circumstances, at?
tenuating or otherwise, etc., they were so
muddled that they ended by finding the
prisoner at once guilty and not guilty.
The president naturally requested the
jury to retire and agree upon a verdict
more compatible with common sense, and
when the jury, vexed and terrified at. the
same til no, returned into court they re?
plied in the affirmative to all the questions
put to them and remained mute as regard?
ed attenuating circumstances.
l be president of the court, rather sur?
prised at this unlookcd for success?for, as
everybody knows, the carrying of a death
sentence against a prisoner docs more for

ho was dazed, but lie gradually recovered

monstrous, but little by little ho boon tue

heart it was against thoconoiergo, primary

Jean Rhotllo passed his spare time in
prison in composing a grand opera in five
acts, entitled tins "Guidon Fleece," and
throe* years after his arrival in tho Ho des
Pins, whore ho had been relegated, and
where ho enjoyed almost absolute liberty,
he was enabled to put in execution a
Bchomo which ho had ltm<i caressed. This
scheme was I lie foundation of n school of
music reserved for certain categories of

tary, professor of harmony, fugue, coun?

talent as a clarinet 1st was placed in charge
of tho wind Instrument class, and an ox
notary, forger and dramatic author was
exclusively charged with the declamation
801110 of tho natives had splendid bass
voices, and a little girl, Meokn-Liki, gave
fair promise of becoming a second l'attl.
Joan Rhodio, happy in his enterprise,
had spent live years touching the natives
of the Ho des Pins the gentlo art of music,
when one day the commissary of police at
Nice received a visit from a young woman
Who appeared to be a prey to violent grief.
She explained between her sobs that she
had been abandoned by her master and
mistress and was absolutely penniless.
She bad ? been abroad with them for sev?
eral years, and on their return to Nice they
had turned her out.
The young woman was none other than
Marianne, .lean Rhodie's missing servant.
Her strnugu conduct and disappearance,
which bad had such disastrous oonso
t|Uouccs for tho violinist, is easily ex?
plained. Slui was in love with a valet in
tho service of rich foreigners, who resided
in tho Plnlno Moncrtnu. Suddonlv tho for?
eigners took their departure. What wore
tin- lovers to do:- Fortune onino to their
aid. On tho day previous to that Qxcd for
leaving Paris a kitchen maid's place be?
came vacant. Marianne was Accepted, and
leaving several months' pay behind her
went off without notifying Rhodio in order
to escape from his remonstrances.
She bail Intondcd to write, but had put
it off and put it off till dually she never
wrote at all. Now, however, that sbo
found herself in Nice, abandoned by her
lover, without parents and without friends,
she thought of her former master ami beg?
ged to he sent to Paris.
The commissary acceded to her request
aftor vainly trying for a week to find her
a place. The money for her fare was ad?
vanced out of tho public funds on condi?
tion that it should be roiinhumed upon
her arrival. On reaching tho capital Mari?
anne at once hastened to the Hue Nullet.
Not only was the concierge no longer
there, but her master had disappeared,
anil none of tho lodgers know any thing
about him. In the height of her perplexity
she was sent for by the commissary of po?
lice of the quarter, who demanded tho Bum
due from her to the state.
She was, of course, unable to pay
"Then," said the commissary, "you
will have to goto prison for 15 days for
defaulting the slate."
The terrlllcd girl burst into tears.
"Ah," she exclaimed, "if only my old
master had been there, ho would have
"Your old master? What master?"
queried tho commissary.
"Why, M. .lean Rhodio,' of course, with
whom I served for over live years."
"Hold bard|" exclaimed t he magistrate,
tapping bis forehead. Ho thought awhile,
and then tho circumstances of .lean
Rhodie's trial and condemnation came
back to him.
?'.So you were Joan Rhodie's servant!"
" Yes, sir."
"And you are not dead?"
"Then tell mo whore you Went to ami
what, you have been doing since you left
"Well," said the commissary after lis?
tening u> her story, "your precipitate de?
parture was tho canst! of an Innocent
