Mlt. ANONYMOUS. PRESENT. Que afternoon towards the end of Beptember, the clocks In the city of Lon don struck four, and the daily routine of business iu the house of Pumkin Brothers came to a close, These events were not peculiar to that day, but a story must hare a beginning. The numerous clerks closed their ledgers, and stowed away their papers with greater alacrity than they had shown In bringing them out some six or seven hours before, and as lliey put on their overcoats, hats and gloves, they began to chat with each other. One had got an order for the theater for two, and asked another to have a chop with him somewhere, and then go thither; others were members of volunteer corps, and were in a hurry to get on their dis guises, niut tic naii-rigm turneu some and eyes were of that character which is worn by sustained rather thai) spasmodic action of the muscles. He was a man i with a terrible, because a secret, sorrow. 1 do not say that you would have gathered all this on the present occasion, for when ' he was iu the society of the Maplesons, he was a different being. He was a lonely t man ; most workers have two lives, a pro. , fessional and a natural one, hut until quite lately he had been a student and nothing else ; studying for his livelihood ; study ing for companionship, even at meal-times; studying to find an opiate. But since he had formed an acquaintanceship which soon ripened into friendship, with the ', young brother ami sister, life had acquired a new interest for him, and that little par- ; lor was an ark on the salt waste of his ex istence. He promised to dine with them on ' Michaelmas day ; and then Susan gave I him his greatest treat some of Menales sohn's music. He would sit and listen till the water came into lii s eyes; and this was not such a very curious phenomenon, for though the girl was not any very bril liant performer, treating her instrument like a musical trapeze, and going through all sorts of wonderful gymnastic feats upon it, she played with rare feeling and expression, sending the notes into the heart, as it were. At half-past ten the party broke. Harry Mapleson considered that as his sister rose early to look after domestic matters, and get his breakfast for him, (for even a very small establish ment requires considerable He gazed at it in silence for some time, and then murmured : " llow like " " You knew our mother I" exclaimed Harry in surprise. " 1 mean, how like your sister," said Mr. Nicholson, handing the miniature to him. "o, yes; there it a strong family re semblance," said Harry. " Hut since you will not have any more sherry, suppose we go up to your room, and smokes pipe, while Susan 'makes tea." When the old man and the young one had settled down to the mutual ab sorption of a nice time, the hitter referred again to the subject of his personal affairs, "The only thing I regret, ' said lie, "Is the way in which my sister is shut up. It must be a dreadful tiling for her, poor girl, to be alone all day ; and it Is bad for ner to be without any" companion of her own sex." "Have you no relatives or friends?" asked .Mr. Nicholson. "Our relatives cast us off many years ago, on account of a family misfortune. Hut there were some friends who got me my present appointment, and who would have taken charge of Susan. We declined because of that family affair, for Susan thought, and I thougbt, that it would per haps he brought up against her, If she mixed in the society to which these friends would have Introduced her. Of course we did not put our refusal upon that ground ; Susan said that she would children. "You are right; we are hi This syinuathv is Indeed kind.' "Perhaps you yourself are a connec tion?'1 said Susan, with a woman's pene tration. The fellow-lodger al last forced words to his lips: "Yes," he said, "11 " "Look to him, Harry!" cried Suan; and if they" had not run to support him the old man would have fallen. They got him into a chair, bathed his forehead, gave him sherry and he soon came out of his faint. "The emotion was too much for me," he said, presently. "I am myself again now. No, no, do not go for u doctor. 1 am not, ill. It is noth ing hut an overdose of happiness; a meil- ; n ine," he added, with a Bad smile, "that I have not been much accustomed to." "You are a great friend of his. per haps?" asked Harry, who looked puz j zled ; hut Susan glanced rapidly from the youthful features of her brother to the time and care-worn face of the other, and a light flashed Upon her. " Father I" she cried. " My girl 1 My children I" Til tfie course Of the evening he told them all. llow that, when a few years of 'his sentence had transpired, he was al lowed to live as a flee man within the boundaries of the colony ; how his book- 1 cratt had gained him the situation of librarian Ion wealthy settler, who had a touch of bibliomania, which it was tliili cult to gratify out there: how he nearly itieit hi tin- anawina desire to MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. advertised, irvant to "do" lor vou.) she ought ti he early at the other end of the day too ; so he invariably yawned and went up to his room at the top of the house bci'oie eleven. But when he got there be made no preparation for going to bed, but put I the pride which shrinks from raking I an oi(i sname can nariiiv lie where. All had some personal object writing materials out on a table, and draw pertaining to love, war, pleasure or dinner in view; in snort, tne sinking oi tne clock had a magic power, and turned them from mechanical cogs into men. tine young man went up to the head of the department, and from him received papers, which lie put into the breast pocket of Ids ooat, and then walked off without speaking to his fellow-clerks, be yond bidding good-afternoon to one an other, and assenting, once or twice to the fact of the weather being fine. "A mean beggar, that Mapleson," said .tones, as he arranged the flower in his buttonhole. "Ay," replied Brown. "He dines for ft shilling.'' "And inks the rim of his hat." " Perhaps he is poor," suggested the charitable Robinson, " Poor!" cried Jones, "who isn't? mil lionaires are not commonly found on clerk's stools. He has his salary, and lie is not married; and yet he stints, and never goes any whore or does anything." "Perhaps he has a vice," suggested Robinson, wdio always fought the battle of the absent. "Ah! he may have certainly," replied .Jones, the Just. " But It Isn't only his meanness," said Brown, who had made overtures to Maple son, which had been met with more po liteness than cordiality; "he is so con foundedly stuck up. Now of all pride I hate mean pride." The unconscious object of this dispar V n'rement walked down Cheapslde to St. Paul's church-yard, where he stopped lie fore a bonnet shop. "Still there," he muttered, "that is j lucky. How well it will become her!" He entered, bought the bonnet which had taken his fancy, and w ith the little 1 curd-hoard box in his hand, started oil' in the direction of Islington. In vain did Hansom cabbies raise their whips, and omnibu-i cads cry out " Ton ! Ton I" He walked every step of the way home. Home was a parlor on the ground Hour a bright and cheerful parlor, the orna ments and furniture of which, though not costly, were in perfect taste. There were Bowers, there was a piano, open ; music and beoks lay about in a comforta- ble, hut not untidy way. Home was a girl of nineteen, w ho went into ecstacles over the bonnet. Home presently was tea, tea treated as a meal, not the mean ingless supplement late diners understand by the term. "What do you think, Harry?" ex claimed the young lady In the course of the meal. "Think?" replied Henry Mapleson, with his mouth full ; why, I think that if there were many men of fortune who knew that I had a sister who could make such anchovy toast as this, they would soon carry her off from inc." " Young men of fortune do not marry their cooks; the new bonnet is much more likely to rid you of me. But what I was going to say w as, we have got a goose. " It isn't you, pussy, and it is not me," quoted the brother, turning to the cat. ")h, what grammer I" " The verb ' to get' lakes an accusative, Susan. But about the goose. llow did you steal it ?" "Nohow; it came together with its giblets, aid a half dozen of sherry." " What ! Mr. Anonymous again ?"' "Yes." " He is very good, said Harry, a serious expression coining over his face. " But there is one thing that I do wish he Would scud his name, I hate mystery." " But you like goose," added the sister. " Well', yes -, frankly, I do sherry like wise. He says that he is an old friend of our parents ; but if he is ashamed to ac knowdedire us now. I had sooner he with out his charity. However, it is ungra cious to say so ; and after swallowing a twenty-pound note, it would be absurd to strain at a goose and giblets. We will rat the bird on the day set apart for that purpose by the church. Shall we invite our fellow lodger f" "Mr. Nicholson ? (I certainly !" When tne lea thing- Were ch ared away, and the lamp lit, Susan Mapleson sea to work upon her brother's buttons and sucks, and while she sewedand darned, he reail a novel aloud to her equitable divi sion of labor I" Just as he had finished a chapter, the hall door closed, and observing Hint Mr. Niuholson had come in. and that it would be a good plan to give him his invitation at once, Harry Mapleson rose anil went out, returning presently, followed by the fellow lodger, an elderly man with a '-light stoop, who placed his hat and umbrella on it chair, and came forward to greet Susan, who took off her thimble to shake hands with hiss) "Have you been to the British Museum to day?" --he asked. "Yes, my dear; yes, as usual ; I am a leech app'licd by 'the publishers to old books." "A leech? No, slice." "Well, that is perhaps a prettier way of putting it, and more complimentary both SPto myself and the venerable authors 1 draw from ; thev are flowerv enough, sometimes, too. But the bee skips from bud to blossom in gay coquettish man ner, which would never draw the, honey out of a black letter volume, let alone a medieval manit-i ript ; I fear that leech i more literal.'' "But then, what term would you have left to apply to publishers? ' asked Harry. "Nay, nay," said the old man ; "I can not complain. Th'-y pay me very well ; there is not much ..uipctiliou in my musty line." A tyro in physiognomy might have pro nsum cd Mr. NirhoUon to lie intellectual and 1m ue.olent. but it would have taken an adept in the art to d ipl.er the expres sion which hat.i'ually prcad over his feature-' There wa" a wi r li"veb-ss hunt ed look, which told of great suffering, tin r mental or phv-iial probablv the not leave me ; and I believe thev think no .uiiuu.u, . ui wnme ani sc s .

No wonder that Mr, Nicholson pulled hard at his pipe in silence. It was evidently no lack of in terest that held his tongue, however, for he turned away his head, and his hand shook as though he were palsied. And probably Harry did not look for a reply ; he was thinking aloud as much as talking to the other and presently he perceived this, and said with a laugh "A pleasant sort of a companion 1 must be with my sentimental egotism! My excuse is the relief it affords me to speak out, and there is no one else upon whom I can Inflict the ideas which sometimes plague me ; for. of course, 1 want Susan to think I am as free from care as a lap-dos. And then I seem ing from his pocket the paper w hich he had received from one of the heads of de partments before leaving the office, he sat I down to work. It was three o'clock be fore his task was accomplished. "A slice of luck, this," he said to him- self, on turning in at last j "just as I was wondering how 1 would meet those pay ments I had overlooked without cutting I oil' some little expense, which would shmv Susan that I was hard up. I get this extra jobof work, which will set me straight, What a manager that girl is ! I am afraid she stints herself in dress and tha, ; must not he ; it shall not bet mother, if I can help it." And think ing of her who was gone, he fell asleep. Susan's bed-room communicated with the parlor, and w hen her brother and .Mr. Nicholson went up stairs, she passed into it, returning again soon with a quantity of millinery materials, from which she proceeded to concoct one of those articles of feminine adornment which fathers and husbands pay so dearly for. "Poor old Harry!" her thoughts ran as her lingers worked. "He thinks that I do not see that his salary is too little for our expenses, and I durst not remonstrate with him when he wastes his money upon things I really do not want: it would dis appoint him so! llow fortunate it is that I have got this knack of making things, w hich secures me employment at my ow n home! How little he thinks that I 'so of ten follow him into London, carrying my work to the shop when it is completed! The ordinary seamstress' work I tried at first was mil worth while, but they pay well for this. 1 wish Harry would spend a little upon himself; I durst not give him a new coat or bat in return for his mantillas and bonnets. The idea of his getting me that bonnet; how surprised he would be to learn that I made it!" PAST. The air of Harrow-on-the-Hill must be peculiarly bracing, if the proverbial sen timent about the bird of Si, Michael, at tributed to the boys educated there, be founded on anything like practical expe rience. The goose, they say, is an aw k ward dainty, being too much forone, and not enough for two. I know that If J had two sons who "asked for more" after fin ishing a goose at a sitting, I should write to the Tim'. It is true there are geese and geese, and the specimen sent to the Maplesons may have been exceptionally good; but though they had gone into training, as it were, by dining al six in stead of one, and though they had the fellow lodger to help them, they left pick ings; and if some Harrovian curls the lip of scora, I cannot help it; the truth is my hobby. When they had got their first glasses of sherry after the meal, Harry said: "We must drink the health of Mr. Anonymous, please." "Mr. Anonymous," repealed Susan, sip ping. "Mr. Anonymous," echoed Mr. Nlckol Bon, who drank, and then added, "some relative?" "I don't know," replied Harry. "He is a deed, or rather a succession of deeds, w ithout a name. He sent us the goose, lie -rut Ufl the sherry, he has made us more valuable presents. Do you think I ought to receive benefits without know ing from whom they come?" Certainly not," said the fellow lodger. I " I think you have told me that in one of his first letters this unknown professed himself a friend of your your mother's Am I not correct ?" " Yes. But why such mystery?" " Oh, there are several reasons for that : he may he ashamed of doing more. Y'ou may have substantial claims upon him as trustee of those funds which I think you said had been unwisely invested; or he may have a mill bid dislike to being thanked." " It is strange anyhow." said Harrv, "that our mysterious benefactor should not have come forward tu assist us when w e most needed it." " When you lost your mother?" " Yes." " Perhaps." said Susan, " he was not in England then, and knew nothing about what had happened." "That is very likely," Mid Mr. Nichol son, "especially as you were supposed to be well provided for. Have you nol "aid so?" " Yes," replied Harry: "our poor moth er's little property was in a hank, which broke, but, thank Chid, she did not know w hat had happened. She died in the be lief that her child res were beyond the reach of sordid cares." " It was about two years ago, 1 think you have said?" " Yes, two years ss AttgSjat, I was at college w hi n summoned away to her bed side, for her illness was sudden and short. And just as we were recovering a little from the shock, ruin came. If I hud been alone in the world I think I should have enlisted or emigrated, for I felt very desperate; hut unfortunately I had Sunh to look after, and that steadied me Well, she must not complain. I was fortunate to gel my clerkship, and we managed to save the piano, and a few thincs which were sacred in our eyes, from the wreck." "It was a sad blow ; and the cares of life have fallen upon you early, my young friend-," said Mr. "Niohol-sn. " Hut pardon me for having led the conversa tion into such a melancholy channel.'' he added, seeing that Susan hail much ado Io restain her tear-. I do not know how it happened."

" What is the matter?" cried Susan. "Don't be alarined; it is Lroml news. We can look the world boldly in the face, my dear; our father was inn'oeent!" " I know it; dear mamma always said so."

Of all monstrosities, a pattern child a child w ith all the childhood lefl out Is the worst. of course, most parents would be glad tu see their children violate none of the proprieties of life, if the little ones would lake naturally to such n delightful course, but tins way of constantly reminding, re proving, and rebuking is sure to spoil a child. Belter far let many trifles go un noticed, annoying though they may be, than sour the natural disposition, and send your child as far and keep him as long from his home as possible, lest at the instant of his coming some unfortu nate habit shall call out a fresh remon si ranee. These faults of manner will cure them 1 selves a little later. Save rebuke for graver errors, for real faults; and ill all things, if possible, wilt to a better way. j Love first sternness w hen that rails. .Many parents would give worlds to re call the early lives of their children, the j lost opportunity to tenderly guide their ! ways. TllB Infinite Father must look I down with pity on the little children of ! tills world.

Poor little waifs of humanity I j They struggle on as best they can through j an unloved childhood Into an unloved and i unlovely manhood and womanhood. But of homes where children are brought up according to the good old standard. Il all sounds verv well, ami for souk- char acters, both of parents and children, may work excellently well. In the parent, success in such a training requires a rare combination oi gentleness ami firmness, and few, very lew, have it. A stylo of training without this combination has sent many a tine, impulsive nature head long to ruin. I have been an interested observer, and often an Indignant one. of this matter of family government. And 1 have often seen families turn out exactly the reverse j of what wiseacres foretold. Children I who certainly were any thing but models of obedience became charming men and women, loving most tenderly and rever- , i cueing the mother who led them by love ; rather than authority. Others w ho were i accustomed lo obey the slightest look even in childhood, broke away from every restraint in early manhood, anil brought nothing but grief and sorrow to those who had trained them so carefully. In the best governed families thai I have known (here has been no blind hold- j ing Up of parental authority. This can never invite confidence. Of course, obe dience has been required ; at the same tims it lias been won more by the loving j sympathy of the parent than by coercion. All children can not be held to the same standard or governed by the same rules. What might strengthen one would crush out all individuality in another. Parents need more to study the characters of their children, and vary their treatment accordingly.
