BYT [ sat .L nrrrFL. ] Would thou wert growing 'mid the whispering [grse] I By some sweet shadowed stream, Whose tranquil tide the slow cloud dimly glasses, Faint, dying like my dream. Would that the dew upon thy leaves were lying, And not this rain of tears ; The breeze above thee-not my bitter sighing For the lost hope of years. Would that the lips whose passionate caressing Gave to the lips a sweetness not thine own, Had faintly murmured *"Farewell" and a blessing, Ere they had silent grown. O perished blossoms ! lost, lost friend and lover! ! O light of day, shaded in swift eclipse ! Soon may thy sister blooms with beauty cover My silent heart and lips. "OD R STORY TELLER." MRS. ROCHESTER'S MAID. [IY DAISY VENTOR.] "OH! 'oU witted, witted boy! 'ou hurt my dolly ;" and down went Allie Keih'.' little fibst on Fred's chucby arm with all the force she could muster for ii'e eorergeney. i ,.." wittad, aand dolly's dot fever, .. u', -" rtr ,rted T.r, !1. with bleed wun." ..t 'u:., 1:.i0 for m'ratke the blood run,") "and o. '.- ;.- ._ Allie gave a passionate scream, aau launched herself straightway at Master Fred. A'as! poor dolly! the little mis chief-maker had provided himself with a two pronged fork in some secret journey kitchenward, and with the last triumph ant exclamation he plunged it vigorous ly into dolly's arm. The blood did run with vengeance, or, rather, the saw-dust dlid; and even hard-hearted Fred beheld with dismay the sudden collapse of the much abused arm as the pile of sawdust grew larger. "'Ou kill my dolly! 'ou Sall be hunged !" screamed Allie, fighting tooth and nail. "I don't love 'on one bit, 'on bad, cwuel boy." Fred was really frightened at the catastrophe, but by no means loth to continue the battle ; and between them they made twilight hideous with their yells, as they kicked and bit each other like little furies. Allie fought so determ inedly that Fred finally began to retreat backward, and as she made a desperate clute-h at his curly pate he tumbled up against the stove, and in trying to save himself caugt hold of it with his hand. There was a prolonged and horrible slrisk from both twins as nurse and pa pa appeared in the door together. "Good 'tavens!" cried nurse, diving, at Allie. "Children, what upon earth have you been doing ?" demanded Percy Keith, as he picked up poor Fred and laid him roar. ing on the sofa. "He kill my dolly !" sobbed Allie. "Allie s'ove me into 'e stove I" yelled Fred. "Hush ! both of you," said their papa, severely. "Nurse, light the gas. I should think that by this time you would have learned that you can never leave these monkeys without some terrible piece of mischief coming oft Allie, stop that roar ing; Fred, let papa look at your hand." The child tried manfully to hush his sobs, but Mr. Keith's gentle touch was torture to the badly burned little hand. "Oh! 'ou hurt dwedful " cried Fred. tenderly, '" this is rather worse than the generality of .your scrapes. Lie still, Fiel, and try not to cry while papa goes fer something to bandage it; and with a somewhat concerned face Percy walked off. "What's the matter here?" asked a bright cheerful voice, as nurse adminis tered a vigorous shake to the penitent and terrified Allie-"a worse misfortune than usual, Fred?" and the speaker, a very pretty woman of three-and-twenty bent down to kiss the little tear-stained face. "You hoere, Fanny ?" and Percy gave his sister a kindly nod as he returned with the requisite remedies. "My mon keys grow more naughty every daTy, you Ssee; and, unfortunately, I won't do for a keelper. Fred has succeeded in burning his hand, which I hope will keep him out of mischief for a few days; and I believe I upset an inkstand over my last manuscript in my flight up stairs to see what the row was bout. How are Frank and the children ?"' "Quite velmid Mr. Boebedat, bink ly spnlagd b ar glo...agd 11flmshr upon her lap. "Where's dolly? Auntie and Allie can play at housekeeping now, just as little cousin Molly does." "Fred witted boy," said Allie, prompt- 1 ly. "Dolly's arm all so," and she point a tragic finger to the unhappy victim of the late conflict lying peacefully hors du combat beside the little heap of saw-dust. "Dolly sick; must make e' bleed wan," quoth Fred, doggedly, from the sofa. Mrs. Rochester flushed an amused glance at her brother. "Never mind," said she, consolingly, 1 "Allie shall go out in auntie's carriage to morrow and get a new dolly with long curls and blue eyes, if she will be good and not cry or tease Fred. Percy you had better let me put that child in bed." "If you please, mum, rm quite capable, of a doing," said nurse, sulkily, as Mrs. Rochester prceeded to undress the boy ; "and I knows the children's ways, Mr. Keith." "Bring me his things, poor little man," said Mrs. Rocesfer, ignoring the woman's remark. But nurse was an old servant, and stood her ground. "You ain't my missus," said she, coarse ly. "Mr. Keith knows I've took care of them twins ever since they was born three years come Christmas-and I can take care of 'em yet. We servants don't want no fine stuck-up ladies coming-" "Hu y-11 finished?" interrupted her m,.:,et;, st"r t'y: "iav' the room. If you Mb"elen hbe fo- thrte yeaur, . we S . i;,t y i . ri .geit if late; nd Mrs. Rochester in :.t .. :l well," as she muttered someti . . :..: more saucy, and flung down the band ages, "you may come to me for your wages in half an hour; you leave the house to-morrow." Bang went the door, and then Percy turned to his sister in comical dismay. "She was worse than the old man of the sea," said he, his eyes twinkling mer rily; "but heaven knows how I am ever going to do without her. Bedlam will reign in undisturbed glory, and Allis and Fred become worse every day." "Where's that nice-looking house maid?" asked his sister, laughing; "she might do until you found some one else. Call her up now, Percy, and after I get your twin monkeys safely in bed, we can go down and talk over your troublesome domestic arrangements in the library." In a few moments the girl, Maggie, made her appearance, and after much coaxing and bribing on the part of papa and aunt Fanny, the twins were esconc ed in their cribs, tucked in snugly, and promised a visit from papa after dinner: and then the brother and sister went down stairs. "No light," said Percy, impatiently, as he stumbled over a library chair; "So ames doesn't half do his work, of course. You never saw such an organized house hold as mine, Fanny. Here are the matches, after all-it's a wonder." "You do need somebody to look after you," said she, merrily, as he ruefully displayed his ink-stained manuscript. Then, quite soberly, "Percy, I wish you would be persuaded to marry again. Have you thought of what Frank and I said to you last week?" He flung himself down in a chair and almost scowled at her. . "Don't, Fanny! To me there isnothing more revolting than these cut-and-dried matches-family affairs" "Nonsense," she said, cheerfully. "But it isn't nonsense. You all know how my first marriage came about. Poor Laura's only charm was her angelic face -and what a weary time I had for eigh teen months. I paid dearly enough for my boyish marriage, Fanny." "I know it," she answered, softly; "but for that very reason you might be happy new with a woman thoroughly suited to you; and Grace Elliot have many more traits to recommend her than her fortune. "I don't care for that," hanghtly. "I have alredy a sufficiency of property, together with my growing reputation as an author, to be above marrying for mere money. I by no means deny that I have thought of some time marrying agin; but I have an ideal of my own to fill that utterly prqvents my falling into matri mony after the pattern-style that you and Frank would persuade me into.' No, Fanny, I must rub along in the same discomfort for awhile-no hurry, except in the matterof a nurse for thore children -two such monkeys no man was ever plagued with before Perfect firebrands! That win just dimisoed had no idaddincipe;ald, after an it does m.mr aburd to metiom a ~~ *ard word ia connection with my three rear-clds. What would you advice? A aursery-governess? Come, Fanny, you usually have a pet protege in petto; and *ere's a magnificent opening for one of your model orphling." "I wish I hac an, orphan for you," she said, after a mo neat's refection; "but the matron told me yesterday, when I stopped at the asylum, that she had found a place for he last grown-up girl she had. Let me think," musingly. "You must have some body at once-to-morrow, in fact. I have Lt, Percy. I must give up my maid, for awhile." "Your maid?" "Yesl The vary thing, though she is my maid. She's a new one I've got; a real paragon in her way, able to do anything, and very obliging, which is rare Now I am willing to lend her to you for a few weeks; and in that time, I hope, we'll be able to find somebody that will suit permanently. I only hope she'll consent to come." "And, in that meantime, what will be come of Mrs. Rochester's brilliant toilets? And what will Mrs. Rochester's husband say to such an unparalleled generosity on her part?" "Mrs. Rochester's toilets shall be bril iant as ever; and Mrs. Rochester's hus band has a weak fas'"ion of yeilding to his wife's last whim," "-ho: r"toitc.- ,,vyly. '"Really, Percy, I dor't L'row whit else t i di, for vou. She is .:r," mt;'ý:. :'oe her .laice. and ql'! - cm: !.1, of leginining th. nlch- ntcýi .. ,iiscipline wnth A llie F ru i F'red. I'!i rc'im l lr, and drive over U ,'t :. ý `,!.' t h, morning. But now, dear Percy," il.tmingly, "since I have been so unselfish, as you call it, won't you promise to think about Grace Elliot? I had so set my heart upon it."' He shook his head and made a grimace. "Didn't I hear Frank say something vague about your inviting the young lady on here to make a visit, so that I can be aught, I suppose? Don't! at your peril, Fan-Irm beginning to hate her already. A strong-minded woma, no doubt,who'd drive me dumb with amazement, and the monkeys frantic. Pray let Miss Elliot remain in the city of Brotherly Love un disturbed. To please you, though, I'll look about among the ladies of our ac quaintance. There's Bella Ingersoll lon't look so disgusted, it's not becoming -only I'm afraid she'd bring her horses and dogs into the drawing-room, which wvouldn't add to the domestic appearance of things! There's your carriage at the door, dear; adieu, and please accept my thanks for all your kindness." She scolded him all the way out of the door, where, as there arose a fresh dis turbance from the nursery, he was ob liged to leave her; and then Mrs. Roches ter stepped into her carriage and drove home. It was an evening early in December, and the cozy boudoir in Mrs. Rochester's handsome house looked .wonderfully home-like as she entered it. A slight graceful figure was curled up in her lounging-chair, and Miss Elliot's silk flounces rustled as she sprang up to greet her friend and hostess. "All alone, Grace," said Mrs. Roches ter. "Where's Frank? I do believe I'm late." "I should think so," answered Grace, "and you look so full of business. Pray, where have you been these two hours? At that wonderful brother's, no doubt." "And a nice muss that wonderful bro ther makes of his housekeeping. Those twins are perfectly marvelous, as full of life as young panther-kittens, with un limited capacity for getting into scrapes. Now, Grace, just listen I have a plan for his assistance, and it needs your co operation. He has had to turn the nurse away. He must have somebody to-mor row. Now,be a good girl, and go there for awhile---" Miss Elliot's gray eyes grew round with amazement; and she stopped the tide of impetuous words indignatly. "Preposterous! Really, Fanny, you are gone a little mad in your philanthropy. I go and undertake the charge of those children. And in what capacity, pray? "As my maid, dear!" said Mr Roches ter, coolly. Grace Elliot tried her best to look rex ied and dignified, but the utter impudence of her friend was too much for her risi bles, and she went off into a merry shout of laughter. "Heartles wretch!" maid Mrs Bebe tr, her -s damsg for sympathy- "- you knew the pig) that Pesy in. T ehldrea re not badcbikdem. mal, and yon could tame them, rm sure; and it would be such a joke on Percy." "How long did you wish me to play this pretty farce," said Grace, relenting a little. In truth, placed before her in the light of a frolic, it began to be tempting. Fortunately, Mrs Rochester had never mentioned to Grace her plans for Percy's total surrender to her charms. A mere hint of such an idea would have been a death blow to her present hopes. So now she gave Grace a comical history of the' scene wherein poor Fred came to griefd, and dwelt upon the capital joke they could have at his expeneg. Grace, her self, dearly loved fun. The end was, that after coaxing some time, Grace consented to assume the role planed for her, and enter upon the reformation of Mr. Keith's household for a term of three weeks, stipulating that she should disguise her self as she pleased, and binding Fanny over to solemn secrecy forever! "My brother is in the library, is he not?" said Mrs. Rochester the next morn ing, as Soames opened the door in an swer to her ring. "No, ma'am; Mr. Keith went down town an hour ago, leaving word that he would be home as early as three. The The children are in the nursery," as Mrs. Rochester turned toward the library door; "leastaways, Master Fred is," and Soames stole a glance at the person who accom panied Mrs. Rochester.

"Softly, Grace," said Mrs. Rochester, as the approached the nursery-door, "just listen to that monkey, Allie."
