'TU ? blessed toil from the tooming soil
To garner a nation's bread.
Let the furriers sing at their harvesting,
For by them the world is fed.
Though bunks may fail and 1,1 ruin's gale
Every speculator reel.
The fruitful sod is the bank of Ootl,
Anil its wealth no knuve can steal.
When the rain and sen their good work Iiav*
In the grninficlds far and wide,
Lo, the reaper hands with armed linnds
Through the toppling harvests glide,
Anil the swaths of gold from the cradles rolled
Gild the soil by the scythes laid bnro
As ridges of mist by the sunlight kissed
Gild the broader Holds of air.
The hinders lithe who follow the scytho
For the troasurcs it crops and leaves
As with laugh and song they hurry along
Leave a wake of yellow sheaves,
But the happiest souno is the lust, I ween,
Vilien over the yielding loam.
The last load is bcrno from tho fields close
For then is the "Harvest llome."
Oh, were I the lord of acres broad
With the strength my land to till,
t'd follow the plow with a headed brow
And renouuee the "gray gooso quill."
For of fields of thought, though with patience
The harvest oft is spurned,
but the seeded field with a solid yield
P?ys for every furrow turned.
?W. it. Barber in New York Ledger.
Juan Rhodio, first violin at the Ambigu
Coinlquo, was one of those obsouro individ?
uals, regular as a clock in their habits,
who lead a reserved kind of existence and
whoso ambition is limited tu maintaining
themselves In the position which brings
them in their daily bread.
Ho occupied a modest, apartment in the
Uuo Nolle!, Batignolles, which was kept
in order by Marianne, a worthy girl, who
from long' sorvico had beoomoas method?
ical in her ways as her master. Sho know
exactly at what hour tho latter would r...
turn from tho theater, and his suim?;: was
always ready to the minuto.
Ono night, however, his customary chop
was missing. So was Marianne. The next
day passed, and tho next, and still Mari?
anne failed to put in an appearance What
had become of horf Ho could not oven
conjecture. His vexation gave placo to un?
easiness, and his uneasiness to alarm.
On the second day he resolved to ques?
tion tho concierge. Tho nmiahlo Corobus
gruMy replied that ho was not her keeper,
that lie had not seen tho girl, and, for that
matter, did not want to.
Jean Rhodio was by decrees getting ac?
customed to the disagreeable necessity of
having to tako his meals in a restaurant)
when an incident occurred that furnished
a fresh subject of discussion Id the gossips
of tho street, who were beginning to forget
all about Marianne's mysterious disap?
Ono morning tho concierge rend the fol?
lowing paragraph in ono of the daily pa?
"The body of a fair haired and some?
what stout young woman, evidently a
servant, was taken out of tho 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 3
francs 4U centimes was found. There being
nothing by which the body could bo iden?
tified, it was sunt to the morgue."
Seized with a dark presentiment, tho
concierge clambered on to an omnibus ano
went to tho morgue. There upon ono of
tho slabs ho recognized, or thought ho
recognized, tho servant of Jean Rhotlio.
Although thu features woro decomposed
by tho loug sojourn of tho body in tho
water, tho concierge, with tho perspicacity*
habitual in those who cxerclso his profes
slon, had no doubt about t ho matter. A
suspicion which he had long entertained
was thus suddenly confirmed?Rhodie had
murdored his servant. The thing was i?w
to get the murderer to confess.
Before sotting tho formidable machinery
of justice lti motion tho concierge brusque?
ly stopped his lodger as tho latter entered
tho llOUSO and thrust the paragraph under
his nose. The effect expected was ob?
tained?tho violinist incontinently col?
lapsed with a smothered groan.
The next day Mhodlo was taken before
tho examining magistrate, when an inci?
dent frequent enough in criminal proce?
dure occurred. The accused was so trou?
bled (hat he did nothing but contradict
himself and was utterly unable lo account
for his timo on tho day of tho girl's disap?
Two months later ho was brought ujj
for trial before the assize court. There
was no material proof, but. the circum?
stantial evidence against him was over?
The attorney general insinuated thai
the callous wretch?indicating the licensed
?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. He was no doubt intimate with tho
girl, said the man of law, and wont on to
expatiate at length to tho jury upon tho
probable consequences of t bo said intimacy
amply sullicient in itself, for I hat matter,
to account for thu crime.
This argument produced a profound Im
prosfdon upon the minds of the 12 good
men and (rue of the jury, who had been
previously greatly moved at the sight of
tho clothing of the victim, spread out on
the table, of the court as pieces a convic
The president of tho court, who waa
Muunwhat of a novice, floundered through
the interrogation, mystifying with himself
the prisoner to such an extent that the
latter began toask himself at last whether
ho was not really guilty of the crime with
which he was charged. A littlo more and
lie would have confessed to it.
Tho counsel for tho defense was Utile
hi tter than the president of tho court. Ho
did more harm than good to his client.
The consequence was that, although a long
string of witnesses testified ad nauseam to
tho qualities of heart and mind of tho
prisoner, the jury, presided over by a pork
butcher, brought In a verdict of guilty up?
on the chief count of the indictment. As
regards the questions 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 lo rotlre ami agree upon a verdict
more compatible with common sense, and
when the jury, vexed ami terrified at tho
same time, returned into court: they re?
plied in thu nfilrmntivo to nil the questions
put to (hum and remained mute as regard?
ed attenuating circumstances.
The president of the court, rather sur
prised at this unlocked lor success?for,as
everybody knows, the carrying of a death
sentence against a prisoner does more for
a judge than all the recommendations in
tho world?condemned Jean Khodio to

strength of tho appeal from tho jury, com?

do Ro pending tho departure of tho ilrst
convict ship for Now Caledonia. At llrst
ho was dazed, but liu gradually recovered
his Reuses. Tho verdict ho regarded ns
monstrous, but littlo by little ho became
reconciled to tho fait accompli, and if a
sentiment of bitterness remained in his
heart it was against tho concierge, primary
causo of nil his misfortune.
If ever ho canio across him, ho told him?
self as he clinched his fists, what a re
vengo he would take! How could a man
condemned to p?nal servitude for lifo hope
over to bo ablo to tako revenge upon his
enemy? It matters not. "Hope springs
oternal In tho human breast."
Jean llhodlo passed his spnro time in
prison in composing a grand opora In fivo
acts, entitled tho "Golden Fleoco," and
tiireo years after his arrival in tho Ho des
Pins, whore ho hnd boon rolegntcd, and
where ho enjoyed almost absolute liberty,
ho was enabled to put in oxeoution a
scheine which ho had long caressed. This
scheme was tho foundation of a school of
music reserved for certain categories of

Some of tho natives had splendid bass
v.dees, nr>d n little girl, Mcoka-Hiki, gavo
fair promise of becoming a second Patti.
Jean Rhodlo, happy in his enterprise,
had spent five years teaching the natives
of tho Ho ties Pius the gontlo art of music,
when one day the commissary of police at
Nice received a visit from a young woman
who appeared to bo a prey to violent grief.
She explained between her sobs that sho
had been abandoned by her master and
mistress autl was absolutely penniless.
She had been abroad with them for sev?
eral years, and en their return to Nico they
had turned nor out.
Tho young woman was nono other thnn
Marianno, Jean Rhodlo's missing servant.
Her strange conduct and disappearance,
which hud had such disastrous conse?
quences for tlie violinist, is easily ex?
plained. Sho was in lovo with a valet in
the service of rich foreigners, who resided
in tbo Plnino Moucoau, Suddenly tho for?
eigners took their departure What were
tho lovers to tie:-' Fortune came to their
aid. On tho day previous tr; that fixed for
leaving Paris a kitchen maid's place be?
came vacant. Marianno was accepted, and
leaving several months' poy behind her
went off without notify lug Rhodlo in order
to escape from his remonstrances.
She had intended to write, but hnd put
it oil and put it off till finally she never
wrote at all. Now, however, that she
found herself in Nice, abandoned by her
lover, wit hout parents and wit hout friends
site thought or her former master and beg?
ged to be scut to Paris.
Tho commissary acceded to her request
after vainly trying for a week to find her
a place. The money for her faro was ad?
vanced out of tho public funds on condi?
tion th.-u it should i)o reimbursed upon
her arrival. On reaching tho capital Mari?
an no at once hastened to t lie ltuo Nollet.
Not only was the conciorgo no longor
there, but her master hud disappeared,
and none of tho lodgers knew anything
about him. In tho height of her perplexity
she was sent for by the commissary of po?
lice of t lie quarter, who demanded tho sum
due from hor to the state.
Sho was, of course, unablo to pay
"Then," said tho commissary, "you
will have to go to prison for 15 days for
defaulting the state."
Tbe terriUed girl burst into tears.
"Ah," sho exclaimed, "if only my old
master hnd boon there, ho would have
"Your old master? What master?"
queried t lie commissary.
"Why, M. .lean Rhodlo, of course, with
whom 1 served for over live years."
"Hold hard!" exclaimed tho magistrate,
tapping bis forehead. He thought awhile,
and then tho circumstances of Jean
Rhodlo's trial and condemnation came
back to him.
"So you were Jean Rhodlo's Bervnutl"
" Yes, sir."
"And you are not dead'/"
"Thon toll me where you went to and
what von havo been doing since you left
" Well,'? said tho commissary after lis?
tening to her story, "your precipitate de?
parture was the cause of nil innocent
man's condemnation." And he told her
