Tired of play, my little boy
Quo evening climbed my knee. *
Nestling’ir. my arms, he said:
“Please sing a song to me.
Dojri sing'the song you always sing,
Sing one 1'vo never hoard.”
I pressed his velvet cheek to mine
And answered not a word,
But in the twilight sofi and dim,
I sang this little song to him:
fcesfc, little curly head, rest on my arm,
Droop, weary lids, over eyes of gray,
God’s holy angels will keep thee from harm
Through the"dark night as well as the day.
Best thee, my baby, with never a care
Thy slumber to mar or thy waking to share.
Best, little curly head, happy and free,
Sweet be thy dreaming the whole night long,
The darkness can hold no terrors for thee
■Who know not the meaning of right or of
Best, little curly head, leave him who sings
To mourn the- regrets which experience brings.
Sleep, little curly head, sleep on my breast,
‘ The daylight is fading and playtime is o’er.
The song bird that woke thee has gone to its
And, save in thy dreams, will call thee no
Sleep, little curly head, dark falls the night,
Haste thee to dreamland where pathways are
Sleep, little curly head, close to my heart,
No thought of the xnorrcrtr disturbs thy re*
No haunting visions will cause thee to start—
Thou’st yet to discover the thorn on the rose.
Sleep, little curly head, leave him who sings
To mourn the regrets which experience brings.
I had been married just a twelvemonth,
and as I believed I had got the very dear
est little woman in the world for my wife.
The your just concluded had in conse
quence been the happiest of my existence,
and I revived to make my partner a little
present in remembrance of the event which
had made ue one for life. As I know how
much more delightful a gift beoomes when
it is unexpected, I said nothing to my
wife of my intentions, wishing to take her
quite by surprise. The accompanying n&r
ratlve wiu, i smna, snow now
I succeeded in that endeavor.
Sly business lay in the city, whither it
was' my oustom to travel every morning
from the quiet of a little suburban resi
dence, returning home in time for a oozy
dinner in the early evening. It was my in
variable praoUee to carry wrlth me a small
Gladstone hag, and on the day in ques
tion, after placing Into this, along with a
few other th ugs, the articles I gad pur
chased for the purpose named, and which
consisted of a gold bangle, a pendant for
the neck, with ruby star attaohed, and a
small diamond brooch, I took the train at
Cannon street in the very lightest of spirits
on my journey home.
Seating myself in the corner of the first
class carriage in which I rode, with my
bng in hand, I was for a time the only oc
cupant of the compartment, but as the
train was on the point of starting I was
joined by a person of very gentlemanly ex
terior, faultlessly dressed, who stepped in
to the carriage with an air of 6ome con
cern. Hike myself, he camied a bag—a
circumstance not at all striking in itself,
but noticeable on this occasion by the so
licitude which it seemed to cause its own
er. who, seating himself opposite to me,
first put the thing under the seat, then by
his side and finally elected to carry it as I
was doing mine.
It was not long before we were In con
versation. The season of the year was late
summer, and tho subject naturally sug
gesting itself wait that of holiday making.
My companion had evidently traveled a
great peal, for ho discoursed fluently of
journeyings on the continent, comprising
adventures in the Alps, trips up the Rhine
—and excursions into Italy. He told of the
beauties of the Riviera, the delights of Ba
den and the glories of Berlin and waxed
enthusiastic ever the charms of continental
women, the fair girls of France and the
dark beauties of Italy.
“But after all there are no women like
the English,” concluded ray companion,
more quietly. “They may lag behind the
continental girls in the matter of personal
beauty; but, depend upon it, they make
up for it in all other qualities.”
This was quite in accordance with my
tastes, for my littlo wife at home was, I :
am proud to say, an English girl, and fully
bore out his estimate. I warmed to my
companion at once on his saying this, and
It was noi long before I had informed him
a good dee! aHrsl my private life; draw
ing a glo wing picture of my country home,
and the little genius who, like an angel,
presided over it. He appeared so interested
that I even went a step farther in the light
ness of my heart and told hip; not only
that this was the anniversary of my wed
ding day, but that f was intending to snr
nriso my wife on my return home with a
little unexpected present. In exchange for
this frankners my companion also became
“You’d hardly think,” he said, speak
ing in a lo-.y voice as he leaned over towaid
jne, “that thic bag whrth I hold in my
hand contain*; jewelry worth close on £10,
009, would you? Ah, you look surprised I
And yet it weighs but very little. Try It I"
I placed iay own bag on the seat beside
lme in order to take the one be offered me.
“Jewels are not necessarily heavy arti
cles,” I said, balnnyjcg the bag critically,
which seemed no heavier than my own.
“But,” 1 added, smiling, while a flutter
passed through my frame at holding in my
hands so much wealth, “it Is none too
wise to trust a stranger with so precious
an artiole as this, is it?”
“Oh, I have no fear of you,” he replied,
with charming candor. “I think I know
a rogue when I s?e one. In my line of
business I have occasion to mix with all
sorts of people, and nearly a lifetime of ex
oerience has given me a sufficient insight
Into the characters of men to be able al
most tp judge them at a glanoe.”
Wondering who my companion could be,
but convinced in my own mind that be
was some one of importance and flattered
somewhat by his confidence, I handed him
back the bag, which he placed on tho seat
beside mine and immediately started an
other run of entertaining conversation.
Considerably to my regret, this was inter
rupted by the train pulling up at astation.
“Ah, hero is my destination,” said the
stranger, rising at once and taking up his
bag. “Good afternoon! I hope you will
allow me to wish you many happy returns
oi the day!”
In another moment ha was gone, and I
felt quite sorry to lose the companionship
of so interesting a fellow traveler. Friend
ships are often forme*at first sight, and
bad this man remained in my company
trsnoii ion per I felt convinced it would
have resulted in my contracting a new one.
jjow delightful it would have been, I
.lougiit, to ask him to make one of our
rti* djnner party that evening. What a
jsrtn would his Interesting conversation
to my wife, whose knowledge of the
-■artd, like my own, was unfortunately
st based ea a v«y extensive personal ex
perlsnoe. With an Indistinct Intention of
acting upon this half formed idea, I rose
from my seat and peered through the car
riage door, but the man had gone out of
sight, and I sat down again with a feeling
akin to disappointment. In ton more min
utes, however, I was at my own stopping
place, with my thoughts and steps both
homeward turned. The brightness of the
evening and tlio lightness of my heart
made my step quicker and more olastio
“Bubby, my dear,” I said gayly to my
wife when I reached home, addressing her
by a familiar nickname, “you know what
“Our wedding day,” was her quick re
“Yes,” I said, returning her kiss, “and
I’ve got a little surprise for you in the
-shape of a smull present to mark the day. ”
I knew it would be welcome news.
“ You dear creature, how kind of you!”
exclaimed my wife, simply clapping her
hands in delighted excitement. “I am so
Inquisitive already. Tell me, what is itf”
“See for yourself,” I said, handing her
the bag and my bunch of keys at the same
time. “Unlock the bag and see what it

into the lock, am f ever I felt proud of
any action of my own, I did then. I would

though I knew that in the purchaso of
these trinkets I had made a big hole in my
none too largo banking account, I felt that
I was more than justified in incurring the
“What are you waiting for?” I asked
presently, as Bubby seomed a long time
turning the key.
“I can’t move it!” she replied, after sev
eral fut-iie attempts to fit the key into the
“Givo it to me!” I said, and took
bunch and bag from her.
How tiresome! I supposed I was nerv
ous, or excited, or both. But whatever
the reason, I was no more successful than
she. I wriggled and twisted until I got
myself into a state of perspiration, but all
to no purpose. The key wouldn’t perform

easily enough. I examined the bag. Yes,
that seemed all right, although it certain

Imagined it to be.
“There must be some dust in the key!”
I said, after several futile attempts to turn
it. My wife immediately produced a pin
and we picked both look and key, but with
no better result.
This was annoying, to say the least of
it. Already mf little surprise was robbed
of half its effect, and the eager look on my
wife’s face was getting tinged with disap
pointment. But the thing should not be
wholly spoiled by such a trifling occur
rence. The present was in the bag, and
Bubby must have it at once. It would
lose half its value by waiting. The only
course open under the oircumstances was
to burst the bag open and this I at once
proceeded to do. Grasping It firmly in
both hands I gave two or three sharp
wrenches and with a jerk it came asundor.
I saw in a moment it was not mine! My
railway companion had evidently taken
my bag in mistake for his own, and I, of
oourse, had got his. It was an unfortunate
error, anyhow, and might take days to
Of course I had to toll my wife all about
my companion of the railway carriage in
order that she might understand how the
mistake occurred, and as I recounted to
her what 1 could at the moment remember
of the conversation which had so fascinat
ed me and won my attachment to the en
tertaining stranger Hubby’s face lit up
with unwonted interest, and I more than
ever regretted not carrying out my half
formed intention of asking him home.
As I spoke I recollected abont the jewels
and wondered what the owner’s feelings
would be on discovering his I06S. The
awkward part of the affair was that, al
though I had told the gentleman a good
deal of my private affairs, I had not dis
closed to him either my name or address,
nor had he imparted his to me, therefore
the idea of direct communication could
not be entertained. What would be best
to do I hardly knew.
Bubby’s womanly Interest in the jewels
was naturally great, and as my curiosity
was also considerably aroused we decided
that we would empty the bag in order to
have a look at them. We began to do so at
once. At the top was a quantity of paper,
whloh we carefully removed and unfolded,
fearful lest a valuable diamond should roll
out unheeded. Nothing of this kind, how
ever, occurred, and we went on eagerly
searching until, right at the bottom of the
bag, we came upon the valuable?. They
consisted of a small hand chisel, a ooil of
stout rope, several skeleton keys and a
box of silent matches.
I will not attempt to describe my feel
ings. It was quite unnecessary to tell me
that I had been nioely robbed, and that my
entertaining fellow traveler was a beastly
fraud aud his £10,000 worth of jewelry a
detestable myth. I am afraid I looked as
small as I felt.
Bubby could not resist a smile at my
“This is indeed a surprise,” 6he said,
trying to put a cheerful aspect on the af
fair. "But never mind, deareet,” she add
ed kindly, “try to forget all about it, and
I will promise not to be disappointed. I
need no present save yourself.”
I kissed her for her goodness of heart,
but felt that I could never forgive myself
for being taken in so easily.—Tit-Bits.
Jefferson Davis' Senate Desk.
"If Captain Bassett, the watchdog of
the senate, ever dies, I hope he’ll leave to
posterity ono of his secrets that would
make rich pioking for us guides, ” resumed
the old fellow after a moment’s pause.
“You know Jeff Davis had a seat in the
senate beforo be switohed off on secession.
That seat is still there. Some senator sits
In it through the whole session, but don’t
know that it once belonged to Jeff Davis.

he knows. He’s so blanked careful abodt

made kindling wood of it. But old Cap

all up with screws and putty and varnish
till it looks like any other old desk in the
ohamber. I know for certain that some
mighty influential senators have tried to
get the secret out of the old man, but they
might as well talk to the Goddess of Liber
