He did rouse ber; and It is averred that be never found time fo call at the cabiu again. Did be take ber for a com mon household drudge, or a low-boru field band? She thanked God she had too much Spirit left yet to put herself un der anybody's fset. lie hadn't far to go 10 find scores of drudges aud diggers, but be might go further before he knew a lady when he saw ber. It might have been tbe afternoon after tbo good man's visit that tho widow sat Idly brooding at her cabin doon rJtcr eyes uau a wandering, iat-awsy look, and ber face was keener and thinner than ever. Beyond tbe bluff which sheltered tier cauin strctctiea a lar line of sea coast, the white aaud gloaming silvery in the sun. 1 Far off a group of bathers' in bright dresses frolicked between shore and water. ' They came from the great hotel down beyond; -she could almost catoh the sound of their voices as she hut slow ly rocking iu tier uoorway. it wan a quiet afternoon ; the air was soft and soothing, aud the widow's head so full of bitterness, felt itself soften aud sweet en iu the stillness. This part of tbe shore sheltered by its overhanging rock, was seldom disturbed by intruder, but preeeutly the watcher's eye eauht sight of a young girl splashing aud frolicking Iu the waler jut beyond the rocks, it was a pretty sight, the lou inied arms, the curving shoulders, theswsying, float ing 11 k ure. And perhaps the old woman recalled with a sigh the time wheu she was young and blithe too, arid bad as cheery a voice as thai with which the fair swimmer hailed ber companion iu liie dtstanee. ' ' ' : Gazing abseully ou the smiling scene, revere fell upon her, and when the looked again, the young Kater-oyinpblJ1" "w had disappeared. Sbe bad probably swum aslrore behind tbe rocks. The widow turned away, bugged ber llou shawl ovir ber shoulders, aud thought Ibat the sea wind was chilly. Hark I What was tbat? Surely she beard a cry No merry shout or ringing laogb Ibis; it wight be the cry of a wild bird on iu way to its mate. , She couldn't have got beyond her depth, that young creature, surely I But, la! what of It if ah bad? Dying young, a body gels quit of a deal of trouble. And Yes, sorely, that wa a scream. Tbe widow kxiked sharply 'out. Would Tom never couie?

The little dark cabiu on the shore brightened up with an unwonted lustre as tbe widow ahi'lteicd ber young charge and changed her wet garments lor some of her own. If my Tom w ould only come, I'd send bim for your thing. Oh, no nutlet 1 I'll wrap your shawl about invalid walk down unncll after l e rt'Nted a hii. I'm not hurt, you know, only c.tinl.

Mrs. .Minion would gladly have parted with the last ahred she poMseised, and gone shivering the rent of her days, lo see her worn-out gown donned 'so hand somely by the blight lassie. They have seen better days, miss, and I'll not deny that they've been iu good company fit (heir time; but they're not fit for a tuily now. Her companion laughed, a pretty, nilx- chieVons laugh. She read the weakness of her resetter, and trettied it tenderly . Whatever u lady lias worn Is tit for a lady to wcht, she siiJ, and forthwith wrapped beiclf, smiling, in (lie old gray shawl. And at that moment Tom, with his red shirt gleaming Iu the setting sun, aud a string of li.-li on hi shoulder, stood io tlie doorwav. lie stopped when he saw the guest stau ling upon the heurtlmtone, a bright fire behind ber, aud Hit) kettiu boiling cheerily. She nodded to hi in familiarly. Tom thought bo must bo dreaming. Tom and I ate acquainted, s.tid she. ,ire you? responded the astonished Widow, Yes, said the girl. I've watched Tom ntauy a lime walking along the shore iu bis red abirt, aud once he took me aud lather out rowing. Tom, your mother's laved my lile.

Aud meanwhile his mother betook herself to making a cup of tea for her protege. It was wondei ful how a little warmth ol human lceling had roused this woman tu lile and activity sgaia. Whuii Tom returned, Ittilen wiih va rious articles of sppurel, the Iwo were quietly sipping their tea together st the old round table. Hodid not return aloue, however.

Thete bad been a man dow n looking 'or hands, and be bad ta kru Tom K'sdly, for Toin was a bandy fellow at almost any kind of sea craft, and would soon make a good seaman. Aud you roust jut bide here patiently till I come back, mother; for if there's better da) anywhere, I shall bring 'em with me, bo sure. Alter tint the sea looked bluer aud colder than ever, aud the solitury woman lived a sort of hermit's life. No cheery voice of gobaipphig neighbor lightened the dreary cabiu, no children prattled about ber; and only Belle, the bright, blithe-hearted lassie, seemed to remember to cheer her with a letter now and then. Belle was away now visiting some dis tant friends, bul in her kindly heart she kept a corner, it seemed, for the poor old woman who had saved her life. Three j ears four passed away, and daily of a summer afternoon you might have seen the widow sitting In Iter door way, eager and hollow-eyed, looking out for some possible ship that might be Tom's. Tom was not a good correspond ent, but occasionally up at the little post ollice a wandering epistle waited her trembling baud. , Miu was growing very old and feeble now ; but Tom was get. ling up in the world, 'J oin was first mute of his ship, Tom was a success, Tom was a gentleman, aud oh, above all things, rum was coming home! Not every "one watches In vain, though we may not always be looking iu tho right direct ion. It was so with the widow. As she sat ouo day, with straining eye gs.iug ou far off sun-lit sails, aud seeing how some of them hovered nearer and nearer, and some, alns! took wing farth er mid further away, (ho doorway dark ened suddenly; there came rushing upon her, as if dropped from tbo clouds, a plump, durk-eyed, rosy-cheeked ludy, who Hung herself into the arms ol the- watcher with a cry of joy. Oh, mother I she exclaimed, half sob bing, half luughiug oli, mother, dou't you know me? Why, I'm Tom's wife, aud I've brought tlie captain with met Mother, said Captain Tom, (bat night, you've seen better days, perhaps, but 1 never have. For didu't I (ell you, said Mrs, Tom, archly, that 1 was iu lovo with Tom? Aud lather owns half bis ship, you kuow ; so if Tom's captain, I'm secoud male, you see. And we're going to take you away to where we found our better days. Jarjtcr'n "Wcikly. Mil- lltll Kill! IJI. O.d Joe Coop, a famous moose hunter whom Hardy has celebrated iu Ids Fields aud Forests of Acardia, was well known to me when I was a boy, and that ae quuintaiicc revealed to me other sides of Joe's character than Capt. Hardy found space to portray in hi interesting and instructive page. lie appears there only as the bold and skillful hunter, iii h he certainly was; but there are lew louche to show the peculiarities which in kIo him a character almost unique. Joe was especially possessed of a certain iroulcil humor, which albeit not without parallel, ii rue umoty Indians An instance is afforded in a celebrated dictum of his, which indeed auiouuis taken, in all its bearings, lo a positive Stroke ol pbiioeopby, . He was gelling away liom a lur tia ler after tho dipoi lion of sundry pack of beaver, mink, and otter, and the iinbibitiou of sundry tumblers ol John Company' fire-water and reeled against and nearly capsized white frequenter of the locality.

A Yorkshirernau having killed a pig, aud not wishing to divide with his neigh bors, as was tbe custom (who by the way, whs a son of the Kmereld Isle) : I'at, if I give the neighbors, who have given to mo, a piece of my pork, I'll have none for myself. Can you tell me what I am to do? Bcdad, sir, said l'at, It's myself that can do that same thing. Good, said the Yorkshiretnan, rubbing his hands, aud looking at Pat, Now (el) me what I am to do.

So when the pig was cleaned, it was bung up outside, so that the neighbors might see it. Tho countryman anxiously awaited the approaching night, aud at last retired to bed, but not to sleep. Pat, under the cover of the daikuess of the night, crept round Ihe house and stole the pig. What was the astonishment of the Yorkshlreinun when, at early dawn, be arose to bido away the pig, but found no pig there, cau be better imagined than described. Pat came iu with hi ton '' the mnrnin' to ye, sir, and giving bim s knowing wink, said: Master, bow about the pig? Well, Pat, tho pig was stolen in re ality.

Faith, and the surra a bit o' me thought you could act so well. Just stick to that; it's natural as lifu. But, roared (he now irate Yorkshire man, 1 tell you the pig was stolen!
