AlexnndtT SfcFarlant;. wns waiting bre!tkfit8t, nn event very uncom mon with liiin, fur Aunt Nancv was the soul of niiii titulil y Novt'i'tlieless kIic was a little late this moraine. Eight o'clock was the lirefikfast hour, aud it was now fully ten minute past. Aunt Armey was not my L nrle Jle- Fiul.ine's wife. He was it widower of some fifteen years' standing. Fifteen years before, his witu had leit linn 11 delicate little boy for a keepsake, and had gone away, whispering with her Inst breath that she was very happy. Hit mother and sister who had eoino to the house to nurse her, remained after her eath according to I. nele McParlane s particular request. He would be glad, he saitl if it were not asking too much o it saci'illce, to have Mrs. Howard and Nancy stay with him, keep up his house, and attend to his little bov. So Mrs. Howard, who was a widow with a very stntiteiied income, rented her little house in the ISew England village where she hail always lived, ami came to presicc over Mr. McFarlane's spacious mansion and liberal housekeeping in drccmvii h street, a fact which marks the date of in V story with siitticicnt exactness. Mi's. Howard had been dead three months, and still Aunt Nancy presided over l ncle 31 el arlane s nouseliohl. Neither of them had ever thought of anv change as either necessary or desirable. Nancy had been a fair, prim, and some what quiet girl when she came to live in Greenwich street. She was still a fair, somewhat prim wonia;i of thirty live, with pretty, soft brown hair, violet blue eyes, and a pure, soft, souiewhal changeful complexion. She wns not in the least, like a modern young lady s heroine. She had no particular aspira rations beyond the limited aud old fash ioned one of doing her duly in that state of life to which it had pleased God to call her. She did not consider her self a martyr to uncongenial ciretiin- entailer because she made Uncle McFar lane's shirts and mended his stockings, and even the fact of going down into the kitclien to do up his immaculate rullles, when old Mrs. Rrown's hands were to lame, and the chaml ei maid's to unskill ful to be trusted with them, did not awaken in her ;my desire to rush out in to the world in search of a career. No such fancy had ever entered Nancy How ard's head. She was absolutely "con tented with her present condition," will ing to go on making Uncle McFarland's shirts, keeping his house, spoilil g his child, and "making it pleasant for i iin,'' as she simply said, lier great pleasure consisted iu doing muslin embroidery, visiting the poor, going to church, and reading the English classics, with now and then a novel. If she had any trials she kept them to herself, confiding them to no spiritual director, newspaper edit or, or female friend. Such was Nancy Howard at five-and-thirty. My Uncle McFarlane was a fine gentle man in the true sense of the phrase. Ho was unimpeachable in integrity, spotless iu morals, iu maimers lib. olutely perfect a little set m his way, and possibly somewhat peculiar in his eating and drinking. He was also given to amusing himself in a quiet way with the peculiar ities ot those about tiiin. Jiut he never willingly hurt or neglected any oi:e, and he had a certain genial graciousness of manner, which made all his employees, from Mr. Saunders, his confidential clerk, down to black Sam. the carman, and Ja vy, the errand boy, feel the better when he spoke to them. "Miss Nancy is a little late this morn incrl" observed Uncle Mcr arlane, as lirown, li'.s man. brought him his paper "Yes t-ir, she was out till after twelve last night, at Sam's sir!" "Indeed! How was that?" "Well, iou see sir. Sam's cirl was took with a quick consumption last spring, and his wife ain't very rugged either. Miss Nancy, she's been there a good deal, and when Susy . was struck with death last evening,, she' sends for her. So Miss Nancy, he went and staid till it was all over. It was a great com fo:t to them, sir. You see," Sam's w ife she's got a little young baby, too, aud altocretl'-ei it comes hard!" v i "I t-honld sav so indeed. ! ' We must see tat everything U done Brown.. Find ' out wheu the f une ul is to be, and, Jet I mit know, and tell your wife to seed theui something comfortable when she goyjn to market. Rut Intel inics Miss jN'aiicy. Send tip breakfast, Ri'o'wn." " ISrcakfast was usually n somewhat, si lent meal, save for Alick's clatter with hi.iuunt; for Mr. Farlane always read his paper, invariably asking Miss Nancy's permission. "Why do you look at me mj closcy, Alick ?" aske I Miss Nancy, as she caught her nephew's gaze fixed upon her. "I was thinking how pretty vou are!" answered Alick, with his usual fYaitkiie-'s. "1 think yon are a hundred times pret tier than Mis Rcgina Schuyler, that, they make such a fuss about. And I don't want her for a htcpinother. So there!" "What is that about Miss Schuyler?' asked my uncle, laying down his paper, "It strikes me vou are takiii'' raihera libeity with that young lady to tav noth.ng O! myself." "Jt wasn't me, father; it w as Mr. Ron sail," aiisweud Alick. Mr. liimsall ask nie if 1 wouldn't like a pretty young lady like Miss Regina Schuyler to come into the house; and I told him no 1 didn't want any one but Aunt Nancy. Then he said Aunt Nancy was an old maid; and I said if she was forty old maids she was a hundred times prettier than Miss Regina and so she is!" "We won't discuss that matter! " said my uncle, annoyed, but repressing his annoyance, as usual. " You need not miiiU Mr. Roiisall. AVe all know his ways." There was something in his father's tone which made Alick aw are that he hud better drop the subject. Uncle Mc Farlane went on with his paper, but now aud then glanced over it with an expres sion of some interest. "Nancy in pretty," he said to himself. "There is something in her face which reminds me of my mother." Rreakfast being over, my uncle put on his overcoat, asking, as he did so, his invariable question, "Uave you any com mands for the city?" "And, by the way, please see that ev ery lli.ng is done for Sam's family. The poor woman will, perhaps, be the better for seme port wine, or ale, and let ev erything oe nice about the funeral. 1 will take the expense on myself. Sam is a gootl, fait hi id fellow." "i.e. illy, Na'iey is very pretty!" said my uncle, as he walked out of the house. "1 never thought much about it before, but she is decidedly pretty. Miss Re gina Schuyler, ii.deed! Really Rousall is too bad to put such notions into the boy's head." And Mr. McFarlane pur sued his way to the office, unconscious of the fate i hat aw aited him theic. "Any letters, Saunders?" he asked, is he passe 1 the clerk's desk. "I see the packet is in." "Yes, sir. They are on your desk, and Mr. Ronsall is waiting to speak to you in your room. What ails Mr. Me i'arland':" said the clerk to himself, as his principal passed ou. "I don't be lieve he ever forgot to ask for my wife. 1 hope .nothing is wrong." 1 Mr, Saun ders had an invalid wife, who was in debted to Mr. McFarlane for many little eo mlorts. Mr. Ronsall wns waiting in the bflico. lie was a stout man, with red hair and whiskers, and a bluff, uncompromising manner. He had a habit, on which he prided himself, of always "speaking his mind" that is, of saying everything aud anything which came into his head a habit which did not cause him to be beloved by his acquaintance. He and Lncle McFarlane had once been part ners, and they still kept up a kind of intimacy, at which many people won dered. "Well, Ronsall, how goes the world with you':" asked my uncle, leisurely taking oil Ins coat and overshoes. Jh, well enough. It it don t go to suit me, 1 make it, that's all," answered Mr. Ronsall. "Rut see here, Mer arlane, 1 didu t come here to bandy compli ments. I want to talk to you about a serious mutter." "Well, what is it?" asked my uncle, preparing to listen, not without a long ing glance at his foreign letters aud pa pers. "1 m going to speak my mind, as 1 al ways do!" said Mr. Rousall. "I want to know what you mean to do about A aneyr" "Aye, what about her? that's just it. Of course you can't go on as you do now. It was well enough wheu the old lady was alive; but her death changes all that, and folks will talk. Nancy's an old maid, to be sure forty, if she's an hour " "Thirty-five!" said my uncle, correct ing him. "Well, five years don't matter much. She's an old maid, as I said. Still, folks will and do talk, and you ought to get lid of her. The truth is, McFarlane, )oa ought to marry again; aud of course you can't with Naucy iu the loase." "You think so?" "Why, of course not. There's Miss Regina Schuyler, now. She'd jump at the t hanee of marrying you; but you don't suppose she would set up house keeping w ith Nancy Howard, d you?" "1 lnust beg, Ronsall, that you will not bring Miss Schuyler's ' name t t question," said my uncle. "Such liber ties are not to bo taken with respectable young ladies." "Liberty or not, she would have you in a minute. And there's another thing about it. Nancy Howard is dead in love with you, herself, and of course, you cant marry her that is out of the ques tion." . "Nancy Howard!" repeated my uncle, in a tone of bewilderment. "To be sure, man. Any one but you would have seen it; though Nancy is not the woman to throw herself at any man's head, I'll say that for her. My wife has known it this long time, and I can see it too. Of course you s.n'1 mirrv her. She is old, and poor i anl nlnin. and iu delicate health besides. So, i.f course, an you can ui g,u rid of her. Send nsr home to her na ti place with a pension; marry Begin r ,i ... j : DUUijrW euill irof, - "Does Mrs. Ronsall really think that tl at, Miss Howard entertains such n tinients?" asked my uncle, n Mr. IJr n sail paused n riionuiil: "Women see such things more clearly than men." "Of course she does. She was talk ing of it last night. 'Nancy ouirht to hare a change,' she says, 'if" she don't she'll go off like her sister. She's a quiet, patient creature,' says she; 'but it is easy to see w hat ails her.' Now , you see, her being consumptive is another reason why you can't marry her. So, there! I've spoken my mind,us I always do; and I hope vii will have sense enough to uct ii on i "I shall cerlainlv act upon it!"' naid mv uncle, cabnlv. "And soon, I hope' v;ii, MrHonsnU, nsliif, "iiio sooner tin; liclter. "i he Sooner the belter!" echoed mv uncle. "I quite ngr-e ith you. Thank you, Ronsall, thank you!"' "I think I did a good piece- of work this morning!" said Mr. Ronsall to his wife, as lie was preparing to go out: "I spoke to McFarlane aboift Nnm v !"' and he rcK-ated the substance of the con versation. Mrs. Ronsall w as a quiet, kind-hearted woman; but like her hus band, she sometimes spoke her mind. She did so on this occasion. "Ronsall, you are an idiot! Most men are in such matters, and you are a per fect, one." Mr. Ronsall looked as if some one had thrown a wet towel in his face. "Why, Mary Anne! What's that for?" "You'll find out soon enough. Go along, do, and leave me in peace." Mr. Ronsall was always very meek when his wile took these rare" fils of plain s-peaking, and he shut the door without another word. Mrs. Rousall sat looking at the lire with an express ion of vexation, which gradually chang ed to one of kindness. "After all it might be worse," she said, speaking "to the fire; "Nancy is a good soul, and as sw eet as honey. She will make him happy and be happy her self, and it will he good for the boy. Rut I think I see Roiisall's face when he hears of it!" For two hours my uncle sat looking through his office window without even thinking of his letters. Then he drew a deep breath, as of one relieved of a doubt, and turned to his correspond ence, lie did not go home to dinner, but left the office early, stopping at a florist's, where he bought some beauti ful hot-house flowers, and two nice hya cinth bulbs in pretty glasses, which last he sent to Mrs. Saunders. "Father, may I go up and see Tom Saunders?" asked Alick after tea. Aunt Nancy was sitting at her work-table, fresh and neat from top to toe. She was composed as usual, but my uncle fancied he observed a slight change in her manner towards himself. Probably Alick's remarks might have disturbed her a little. "Certainly, my son. ask, particularly, how finds herself. 1 quite And be sure to Mrs. Saunders forgot it this morning. 1 was the more ready to let Alick go as I wished to consult you on a matter of great importance to us both." Aud then, iu his usual kind, somewhat formal manner, he opened the subject. He w as desirous, he said, of going abroad for some time, perhaps for some years. He thought the change would be good for Alick, who showed signs of delicate lungs. Aunt Nancy's heart fluttered, and her color went and came; but she had long been schooled in self-control, and she made no other sign. "It won't be for long!" said the quiet, breaking heart to itself, little guessing what was in store. My uncle continued. I don't know exactly how he worded it, but he made it plain that neither he nor. the boy could live without Nancy. Would Nan cv consent to become his wife, and be a mother to Alick in fact, us she had long been iu name? And so in an hour the matter was all settled. "We are asked to a wedding," said Mrs. Ronsall to her husband some six weeks afterward. "A wedding w hose wedding?" asked Mr. Ronsall, greatly interested. "Nancy Howard's !" "Nancy Howard's you don't mean " The idea w hich occurred to Mr. Bonsall fairly stuck him dumb. "les, Nancy and Jlcr arlane.' an swered his wife, enjoying her lord's dis comfiture. "They are to be married at St. Paul's, very quietly, aud sail for Europe as soon as possible." "The deuce they are. And after all I said to him!" "After all you said to him!" echoed Mi's. Ronsall. "The moment you told me what you said to him, and especially us to Nancy s being talked about, 1 knew you had made the match. You could have got him to marry old Miss Paget in the same way." "Rut such a sacrifice, Mary Anne!' " Jh, well, 1 don't know. I dare say ho might feel it a little of a sacrifice just at first; but hy this time he has persuad ed himself that there never was such a woman, and that the favor was all on her side. I don't think, for my part, that McFarlane w ill ever regret it." And I don't think Uncle McFarlane ever did. The Aluinc, for May. Printing on Glass.

A small rough houc, far from any other human habitation, hid itself, the balmy siiiiimt r through, amid the sur rounding foliage; but. tlr cruel wintry blat, tearing its leafy coverings, left it in desolate nakedness, in full ievv of the railway trains, w hich several times dailv sped noisily by on their w ay east an'l w est. The quick eye of many a trave ler noted the column of smoke curling upward from the chimney. Here a widowed mother and her son found a humble shelter. IJnt three sliort year before they were living com fortably in the iic.tr.st, lillutrc. The sudden death of the husband and father Corn billed willi a series of lesser misfor tunes, cisiised tin-in to cxch;iri(.'(; tli.ir pretty home for this, which they obtain ed ut a trilling cost from its first pro prietor. And here they have lived ever since how, tlieir old friend" and neighbors scarcely knew . True, Jjine-, the son' went to and from the tillage, laden with numerous packages. His herbs, nicely picked, and carefullr p.-v.-rted, were always aec -piable at the coimtrv store"; and the bundles of bright wooh he carried home when 1 e returned, wo ven into many aeiive form" by the nim ble finders of his invalid mother, invariable-found ready, and ea;er purchase. Many a time, i James turned his back on the cheery viilaire,the intense longing of childhood for companionship and amusement stole over him, and an inex pressible fccliiiL' of loneliness caused liis throat to swell w ith emotions w hich on ly the remembrance of the watching waiting mother could quell. One sharp w intry aflen n, when the quicksilver with downward tendency denoted that it wa to l.e colder still, "Our Hero" for sui h he will prove to be jumped into his little wagon, and turned pony Shag's head towards home, leaving behind him the theory glow of houshold fires. Never had his heart been happier or lighter than now. For 'twas his own at iast, the book he want ed so long, and for which one hard-earned-penny after another had been to carefully hoarded. Now that he had the coveted treasure in his possession, it seemed doubly precious. As Siiag of his own accord turned to the right, he raised it to his lips and kissed it raptu rously, immediately glancing around to see if anv one was looking at him. The short wintry day was near its close, and the bleak hillsides, kissed by the sun, crowned here and there with leafless trees, made dreary indeed the almost trackless country road. The iron track of the railroad, running parallel with the wagon track, gave no token of the locomotives approach. The pony and his master were the only living creatures visible. The boy smiled joyfully, and loosening his grasp of the lines, opened the book, and iu the almost twilight be gan eagerly to read the pages. L iide niably it was the nipping cold that gave to the end of his nose a rosy hue but it was not that alone which sent the vivid color flying all over his face. What if Shag left to himself, did take the w heels over every stone, and bump him around considerable, lie as he read, seemed to be in the land of the Saracens, in the midst of the crusaders, side bv side with Richard "Comr de Lion." "All about him was the din and turmoil of battle; glittering armor flashed in the sunlight; horses and men are falling together; but everywhere, stately, proud and victori ous, went the black horse and its rider. "Hurrah! Huraah! Hurrah!" escaped in voluntarilv from the bovish litis. "Whin ny! Whinny! Whinny!"' responded Shag, approaching the curve, rounding which they would obtain a first glimpse of home, yet a half a mile distant. Reluctantly James closed his book tnd cauiiht ui the lines, for now a deep ravine bordered the way, and the mother had begged him always be careful. The curve of the road", rounding with the track, was safely passed, when James' eye rested on something that sent the" blood surgiug through his heart. A huge tree had fallen from the bank above directly across the track. The strength of many men would be requir ed to lift it froni its lodging place, and with a sickening tremor it flashed across his mind that the eastern train passing through the village he had just left, was even uow due, and might any moment round the curve ' proudly. Aud then James saw as once lie had m a dream, the locomotive and cars whistling over and over, and awav down at the bottom of the ravine, khe aces of the wounded and dying. With this vision before him ho was carefully turning Shag about. Yet what could he do! If he only had a lantern he might swing it around his head, and thus warn the engineer. But he hadn't one, nor anything to make a light with. Yet he had a solitary match picked carefully up from the floor of the store, his book his precious book, and the pine wagon box. In an instant his plans were laid. Shag was urged back at his best speed a few rods. Every second was precious. Out sprang James, jerked the tail board from the wagon, and, in less tinio than I can write it, had with the aid of a jack knife, made it into kindling wood. This with quick fingers he piled cob house fashion, on the middle of the track filled up tho insterstices with leaves, t rn ruthlessly by the haudful from his new history, until nothing of it was left iu his possession but its strong leather cover. Theu with eager haste he cross ed carefully over tho top to the long side pieces of the wagon-box, and, kneel ing down, drew the solitary match across his rough boot. A pale blue light flckercd an instant, then a gust of wind and it was out, but no matter, the pa had taken fire, and no through the quaint pine tower sped the flames. The boards, dry as pine could bo, now igni i ted, but not a moment to soon; for the earth trembled, and the rails were jarr ed by a low rumbjing and nearer and 1' nearer cornea tha i-Bio,. .4 Hard down opoa the brakes, tad u ...... .- . -. - , , .-., 1 en s, laden with human beings, were at a sudden stand-still. Open flow wlu dows, out popped heads. Several men jumped down into the snow. "What's the matter, what's tho mat ter?" they cried, inquiringly, of the lit tlo figure erect by the lsonfiro. i Tho boy could bot'speak, but pointed dumbly to the curve, nnd as they disap peared in that direction, fell, overcome by conflicting emotions, facedown tipon the snow. Strong nnd gentle arms bore him into the palace car; someone onbot loned his worn overcoat, and ontdrop ped tho cover of tho histrory all that waa h ft of what cost him so much thought and selfdenial. This sight was just what he ncedd. It brought the tcau to his e e and tht ob to his voice. I had to burn it," he faltered, as kind, sympathetic voices crowded about him. "1 Vni't cry, boy, you' srood, and 'Izzia loves you" lisped a curly hfdred little onw as "he climbed into James' lap and press ed her aims caressingly about his neck.' "Rut for yon," said "a fine looking gen t'ctii'tn, my darling miht never again' have seen the mother waiting her return so fipxionslv. A lovely'lady pressed forward, and stooping kissed the boy on either cheek ' "I shall never forget you. Remember mu by this." As she spoke, she slipped a ring sparkling with brilliants upon the boy' forefinger. "I cannot bo outdone lr you, ladv," exclaimed a grateful young man, os he took from Lis iierson an elegant watch aud chain, and laid them in the lap of the astonished boy. "Add this to the gifts," rnng ont the hearty voice of a man, who, unobserved, had ente'cd from another car. "Here lad, he continued holding toward the young hero, a hat almost full of notes and currency, "take this with the thanks of two hundred passenger." "Not so fast," ejaculated 'Izzie's pfpa; "there are others here who would like to do their share. And round went the hat, more bill-, someot them very largo ones falling into it. The ear were under motion again. "I I must get off" cried the alarmed boy; "Shag's out there." "No he ain't," answered the conduc tor. "I know about you, and I sent a man on ahead with the pony. We'll drop you at your place." "Oh how good you all are," exclaimed the happy James. "Reckon we ought to be; you saved all our lives," answered the conductor. The little house iscloscd. The widow lives again iu her old village home James goes to sehool, and both are hap py in the consciousness that their good fortune was not ill deserved. Postal Cards.
