The Clarion: Wednesday, January 24, 1883.
A Story for the Little Folk.
Chicago Journal.
The holiday of the Willing Workers
had been the current topic among the
litle folks of North Camden for week
b ifofi hand, and the Willing Workers
themselves dated their preparations
months back. Buch an assortment of
tidies, toiletraeta, maU, dusting-caps,
aprons, match-receivers, pin cushions,
and other fancy articles too numerous to

the parlors of the church had been Kr-
nished with evergreen and lerries, and
it. i kixl with flno-j hanners and urettv
tissue paper devices, the tables had been
most temptingly arranged, and lehiud
each stood two warning inemlters of the
aocietv, gay in muslin aprons and fancifully-bowed
caps. The center of attrac
tion promised to be the doll-table, where
a whole reimiieiit ot niiniitturc men and
women were: displayed, and in their midst,
as the cynosure of nil eye was the lovely
Paris doll that Hattie Windsor, the rec
tor's daughter, had brought on her return
from BuroM in the Fall, and which was
to be awarded this evening to the lucky

Of all the little girls whose longing
heart were filled with aspiration for
the waxen beauty, none, perhaps, wished
for it with mote fervor than Edith Cole,
the village doctor daughter. Miss
Windsor was her Sunday school teacher,
and with her Editi was a groat favorite;
so once or twice when the doctor's little
girl had called at the rectory, she bad
been permitted to look at anil caress the
beautiful, daintily-dressed voimg-lady
doll from over the water. Ami now, as
she stood behind the flower-table with
her colleague, Bertha Kimball, her eyes
were wistfully fixed on the pink satin
robe that adorneil the beloved object,
who at the opposite table held regal sway
over the other dolls there assembled.
Edith had thirty cent that evening
tO spend as she pleased, und every penny
was destined to swell the receipt of the
doll-table, in guesses, Score of name

The rest of the evening passed like an
unhappy dream to poor Edit h, for bitter
remorse soon came to torture her, and,
for the first time in her life, she was ac
tually wretchedly miserable. Hhe early
excused herself from the flower table, on
the plea of a sudden headache, and then
flitted away to a solitary nook in an ob
scure corner of the big room. 'Twaa

pitying her unusually pale face, he kind

moment in bland amazement iih the hail
storm of hard words fell on her ears, bad

for refuge to the library, which bad
been transformed for the occasion into
a general receiving and arranging room,
and here, girl-like, she indulged in the
luxury of a hearty cry.
. one will or can realize how aw-
luilv 1 want that doll, she moaned, as
she lav her head down on the desk
"Mr. Robinson makes fun of toe, and
papa says he reckons 1 can live without
It, and 1 know whatever name 1 guess
will be the wrong one!" With which
melancholy presage, Edith's tears broke
out afresh. This second shower over
however, she lifted her head airain and
began abstractedly to tear bits from a
piece of paper that lay on the desk, when
she was startled to read on the side to
ward her the plain subscription, "Name
of r aris DoU. A Hood of conflicting
feelings rushed upon hot! here was the
"open sesame" to the wished for know l
edge; she had but to open the paper so
temptingly left there without envelope
or seal, as if on purpose for her, and the
treasure was hers. Already her lingers
were unfolding the leaves, when con
science pricked her keenly, and she hasti
ly dropped it. No, no, she must not!
How Could she ever look good Dr.
Windsor or Miss Battle in the face again
after such a deed ! And vet, while thus
wavering, she danced out the half-open
uoor into me oazar-room, and there she
saw, as if to complete the spell, the love
ly doll sitting enthroned in state, and
surrounded by a host of juvenile admi
rers. Now firmly resolved she opened the
paper and read the one word " L'ulnlif."
"Who ever would have thought of
that?" she pondered. "I never, new
should." Giving her eyes a final wipe,
Edith emerged into the big room once
more, a little paler than usual, perhaps,
but with firm and determined step and
set purpose, for she was one, who when
fairly resolved, whether for right or
wrong,ncver faltered or drew back.
(a shockingly late hour for Puritan Cam
den). The tables hud been all hutshori
of their, fineries by eager purchasers, and
an honorary member of the Willing
Workers took the floor to dispose by
auction of the few remaining articles.
He suceoded SO ably that in ten minutes
everything was sold ; anil now the time
had come to declare tho lucky winners
of the guess-hut (a lofty heaver, to be
awarded to the guesser of its exact
height) and the I'uris doll.
All had assembled in the upper part of
the room save Edith and a few old ladies
near her, who wore busily engaged in
comparing ailments, and exchanging bits
of gossip. Everything was hushed as
the society's President ascended tho plat
form, cleared her throat and announced:
"Height of the beaver hat sold by
guesses, fourteen and tnree-lourths
r i riM r TV. ..i
uicnes. i ue winner is ivirs. Isaac luinc,
Tho lady will please step forward and
receive it." A ripple of amusement
passed around as fat old Mrs. Tuttle
waddled up to the platform and tender
ly received the prize, which she bore
away in triumph to her liege lord.
And now Edith's heart beat fast as
the President leaned over ami picked up
another paper from the table. She could
not go up before them all and take that
doll. She must confess, and yet she
dared not. She longed to bide, or run
away, but some fascination held her spell
bound. With qolftk-coming breath
and throbbing temple 1, she watched and
"The name of the Paris doll presented
to the society by Miss llattie Windsor,
will now be announced," said the Presi
dent ; and opening the paper she read in
a clear voice, audible in all parts of the
room :
'Though from foreign parts 1 came,
Dorothea Is my name,
For 1 thought it meet to he ir
Yuukecnauie at Yankee fair. "
"The lucky guesser is our friend, Dea
con Colin ftoiiinson, to whose care we
shall he happy to consign Miss Doro
thea." A buzz of conversation began as Mr.
Robinson went forward and received
awkwardly enough, it must be confessed,
his precious burden. Edith sat for a
moment dazed and bewildered, then
started forward, but paused to collect
herself. Dorothea I what could it mean?
Surely she had read aright. Suddenly
the words of one of the old ladies near
her fell on her ears.
"Walk, that's what I call a right purty
name, no such high-falutin' things as
people air all possessed about-nowadays.
An' it's only owin' to Hettie Windsor
that they got such a purty one. Fust
they axed Sliss Uossister, that New York
gal, tv name it, and she suggested
'I'phalv,' or SOBM such outlandish thing,
but finally they concluded sence Hettie
give it sheorter hev the honor of uamin'
it, and I'm right glad she did."
A great feeling of relief rushed over
Edith, sweeping away all the anguish
and despair ol the last lew hours. Nie
had not then known the doll's name after
all ! 'twas only the name Miss Rossiter had
sent, ami had been rejected. How stupid
ol her! Nie niiirht have known that any
thing so important would not have been
left around so carelessly; in fact, she
now remembered having heard that the
envelope containing the name was not to

In the sudden realization of all this she
could have wept for joy.

Robinson, with Dorothea in his anus.
and, thrusting her towards Edith, said:
" Take her, my dear, and may she prove
a remedy for your present headache and
a panacea for your future ills."
Edith had put out her arms eagerly,
but a suddenly dropped them and said:
"O, no I Uncle Colin; I cannot, must
othea, and perhaps she may serve as a
pleasant warning never to yield to such,
temptation again.
This all happened long ago, and
Edith's Dolly is old and time-worn now,
but dearer, if possible to her possessor's
heart than on the memorable evening
when she received her in the full glory
of her youthful beauty.

to irive the reasons which compel me to
vote against it. I have desired to give it
my support because I know that a senti

demanding a reform in our civil service;
and if it had depended on my friend,
th distinguished Senator from Ohio
(Mr. Pendleton,) who ha charge of this
hill. I think it mieht have been so per
fected as to enable me, and perhape other
gentlemen on this side of the chamber
who in part agree with me, to vote for
it. He has consistently voted for all
amendments which proposed to liberalize
the bill and make it effective for good,
and not, as I am compelled to believe it
will prove to be, a mere pretense and
The Senator from Ohio voted for the
amendment offered by the Senator from
Alabama (Mr. Pugh). If that amend
ment had prevailed I should have voted
for the bill; but it was defeated by the
unanimous vote of the Senator's on the
other side of the chamber
Those Senators seem to have taken
possession of this measure in their new
born 7.eal for reform. They seem to have
taken it out of the hands of the Senator
from Ohio und its original friends; and
they have voted down every amendment
which has been proposed by or which
has commanded the assent of this side
of the chamber.
Mr. President, the amendment of the
Senator from Alabama proposed to trans
fer this experiment to the people who
are now in office, instead of reserving it
for trial in the future upon those who
may be applicants for appointment to
vacancies which may occur in official
positions. If there is anything in the
popular demand for reform, if there is
anything in the demand which has so
awakened the apprehensions of Senators
on the other side of the chamber, and
the party to which they belong, it is a
demand that the civil service ot tins
country shall be changed, shall he re
formed, shall be corrected. It' there is
nothing wrong in the present civil ser
vice of the country we recpuire no legis
lation ; if there is nothing that can be
effected by legislation, then we can wait
for the reform which will be brought
about by a change of policy and a
change of parties in the administration
of the country.
But we have licen led to believe
that the people were rising in indigna
tion against this army of officers who
now till the places of tho country, alleg
ing that they have been organized into a
band, a political machine for the purpose
oi controlling and innuencing not only
elections but nominations. They have
been filled with disgust ut the maimer in
which this political machine has been
assessed, and the money raised there
fr6m in a measure to control and carry
elections and secure nominations. If the
people have spoken at all, it is against
the present civil service, against the gov
ernment; and yet when a proposition is
made to change this civil service or to
subject its officers to the same exam ina
iiou wnicu is proposed ior tuturc ap
poihtntents to civil office in the depart
ments, it is voted down unanimously by
the Republican party.
I deal with this bill in good faith, Mr.
President; 1 am not voting against it as
a politician or a party man. I believe
that the civil service of this country is
to a large extent incompetent, if not cor
rupt; and I will favor any measure which
propose an examination into the com
petency and character of the persons
who (ill the position under it. Rut
this is to be denied to us. All of the
people who are in office are to remain,
they nre to constitute a privileged class,
if they are not to be submitted to the
same competition or the same exanaina

are to be admitted to their fraternity.
I am nnwilliner to Deroetuate. this office-
holding class, and I say it in good faith,
and I sav to the Senator on the other
side who believe a 1 do, and not as my
friends around me, that if this bill passes,
in my opinion, it will do away witn tne
power of removal, on the part of chief
of departments and heads of bureaus, of
their subordinates ana cierra suuuiu a
new administration or a new party come
I am not speaking as a party man,
Mr. President; I am perfectly willing
to vote for a bill to require competitive
examination now, but I would compel
those who now fill the offices of the land,
those who are now clerk in the various de
partments, those who now fill the various
post office and custom-house and other
subordinate positions, to go before the
examining board and be examined as to
their competency, their capacity and
their integrity. The people have de
nounced the officeholding machine, and
they will not be satisfied to have it perpetuated.

Upon the borders of a land

He was the man of men for her
She, the only woman made tor him.
They stood, exchanging troth and plight,
Fire years ago to-night.
They knew the realm that, stretched beyond
Held heights whereon the purple play
Of love s full sunshine, lair and tond,
Was never seen to hide away.
They knew that there were gulfs to cross,
And many a tangled path to tread,
But whether strewn with flints or moss,
What need they care, since overhead
The lambent houeymoon shone bright,
Five years ago to-night?
'Twas not, to be a setting moon,
Like early ones, but heavenly clear.
To pour its beams a steadfast boon
Ot blessing ihro the circling year.
And uow into eaA other's eyes

true ;
But could it, dear, be otherwise
With you to love me so with you
To pledge me all this strange delight,
Five years ago to-night?"
No cross has come too hard to bear,
No care that hid too keen a smart,
With two the burden's weight to share,
With two to lift it from the heart.
They had not dared to ask so much
Of bliss that should not know alloy,
Or hope that time would lay a touch
So gentle on their perfect joy,
As flashed the future on their sight
Five years ago to-night.
The heights that stretch before their gaie,
Like Lieulah's, their rapt vision fill ;
The tender sheen of spousal days
Is softly lingering round them still,
Her foot has only felt the moss,
And his has spurned the flints aside
And there has been no gulf to cross,
And she to him is stilfthe bride
To whom he vowed the marriage plight
Five years ago to-night !
Oh, happier, richer, gladder far,
With their twain cherubs hand in hand
Than on that bridal eve thev are,
As here, all dreams fulfilled, thev stand I
God grant that when their years shall reach
Another lustrum I hey may say,
With radiant faces, each to each,
