Of blue and white de laine, With edging round the neck and sleeves, Lay folded, neat and plain ; Beside a little pair of shoe!

To gather flowers for heaven 1 I'll angel near and nearer came, Where sister sick did lie ; Then gently f nnd her faded cheek, And pointed to the sky 1 . The morning shone upon ths bed, The autumn wind blew free, The angel moved its silvery wings. And whispered, " come with me." We gathered round her dying btd, With hearts to weep and pray, -And many were the tears we shed, When sister went away ! " No bitter tears had she to weep,' No sin to be forgiven, . But closed her little eyes in sleep, To open them in heaven! We laid her in the earth's green breast, Down by the village green, Where gently weeps the dewy grass, And summer flowers are seen ; ; And often, when dear mother goes To get her things to use, I see her drop a silent tear - . On sister's frock and, shoes. THE WORLD WOULD BE THE BET- . TER TOR IT.

If dressed anv better, it would deprive my poor old father and mother of many com forts of life " continued Jane. "But certainly you will not disgrace your uncle's family and your friends by going to the ball in a calico dress !" "Disgrace them!" "Yes, disgrace them." "Uncle often says he should like to see a little more independence in the girls. I mean to go, Mary, and go in my new cal ico too." "You roust not be surprised if your friends 'cut' you then." "Not at all." "And then, think too of the intention of the ball." , "Don't care for that." ' "It is to be given in honor of the rich and gallant Frank Huntington, and I sup- pose he will feel mightly honored by your calhco! ' "You may say what you like; I will wear the calico."

"But it is too bad to go in such a plight j as that." "If my uncle consents I will go." This conversation occurred in one of our large New England villages. Jane Oakes was a beautiful girl some said the hand somest in the place, if she would only dress better ! Her father and mother were very poor, and resided in an adjoining town. i Jane, by the exercise ol a great deal of energy and perseverance, had obtained an excellent education and was assistant teacher in the village High School, and received a liberal salary. But the filial devotion of the noble hearted girl would not permit her to spend her money in the vanities of dress while her parents wanted anvthins which she could procure for them. SWuraa natnrallv cav, and fond of amusements, especially of dancing, when indulged in at seasonable hours. T he ap proaching ball was a sore temptation to her, but she bravely resisted the inclina tion to purchase a ball dress,' and join' in the festivities, her 5 conscience would not permit her to do so. It woutd wrong her parents. ' Mary Trevor, her friend, " was .also teacher, and both of them boarded at the house of Jane's uncle, who was quite an influential person in the village.

Whether the baa was given to show oflTby contrast the attrac tions of an aspiring few, or to give all an equal chance, we shall not now discuss. But Frank Huntington made up nis mind to disappoint the whole crowd. He regarded the affair as an unmitigated "man trap " and he was fully resolved not to "get his foot into iu" Of course his vanity was not a little tickled at the idea of being the lion of the occasion, and he went to , the v.u f.,il nrnred to have a good time, j r x - nnd "roar" alike for all. The ball opened. The band played the introductory march for the revellers to prom- enade into the ball. Jane's uncle had for tunately succeeded in finding a young man who had the independence ' to march in by the calico dress, and the brave girl was dulv seated, engaged for the first dance J - - . r.. By some strange mismanagement u machinery , Jane found herself in the same set with the lion of the evening. She was farr-i-d to confess that he was a glorious' fellow she had never seen him before and just her ideal nf what a man ought to be. It would have been easy to love such much j except the 'calico,' who did not come ior the purpose of catching someDoay. The dance went on, and scores oi envi- n ..vm cast at Jane. Sneers and j ... . ill-natured, not to say malicious, remarks, were freely indulged;. but Jane was too deeply engaged by the attentions of her gallant partner, to heed anybody but him, and remained in blissful ignorance of the sensation she had produced. She had even forgotten the calico dress she wore. Again she was seated, and again the lion seemed chained to her side a very tractable and obedient lion.

Lest some doubts as to its sig nification should prevail, an exchange baa volunteered an illustration of its meaning. He says: When a fanner pays taxes on five hundred acres of untitled and uniencea land covered with blackberry bushes, when he might derive more profit from a half a dozen properly cultivated, he is not burden ed with much 'gumption. When a young man, just setting up m business, keeps a horse and carriage at a expense of tw b' dollars per day, and fails in six months, when he might walk for nothing, and continue his business in safe ty,' you may be assured that he lacks 'gump tion.
