'I hope iho will pay you li -tiiht,' tunr in c red olJ "Ml'.s. G.'eisutl. 'She in well aware of our needs noue tu ore hu,' was the sad reply.' 'At the eutite time she can it s her old habits -A saving into her new life, fur shu knows I shall nut chanjn one hull the price thut the regular Jrer's-uiaker would. Siie wmild have tc p-.iy r Madame Julille tweoty-fivo i dolhii'h, ui the least.' 'Wei!, it's n shame,' replied her mother, 'that you can't f;et the regular price when you di the work as well uud better, iu tuy estimatiun. Time was when your lather euul J have bought und sold Vi'ulter Ilay den ; und uoit you must wovk your fingers nil lor his daughter, who has neither yuur education, uor ' . 'Oh, dou't muuiuia !' pleaded Laura with a little laugh, that was partly hysteiical. You only make it worse lor me, you see ealliug ujijo!J times. Jat tuy it will ull coibe right ia the full, as pupa used to;' aud with the smile still ou her lips, she turned iho troubled eyes away, that ber rooiher might uot Fee her tears. ' ' Por poor, proud Laura, caruing a scant living lor her mother and herself, had a oil mory of the IIsydau3 bidden in Ler heart. ' When Dart Ilaydca. the liundsomest man in New York, some taid, had gone away, only a year before, she had thought ol him for mouths alter, nay, even ti'l now, with quickened pulses and heightened cc.lur. The Ilaydcns were not wealthy, theu ; but within a short time thej come into a ibttuue and it was rumored that young Dart was also growing rich through lucky speculation. It whs j uit nine mouths sine the death of Luuta's father. He had dropped down, suddenly, while apparently in fuil enjoy ment of health; aud after the funeral, it was' found that his affairs were iu a very tangled condition. In fact, ouly a small house was left t' the widow, through the couaidcrtion of the creditors, aud that far from comfortblj furnished. Laura, the child of wealth and fashion, her father's idol, and delicate thorough bred, elegaut girl, who had hitherto sun ned bcrseli iu the wairu rays of prosperity, hardly knew whether she bad a heart or uot, proved herself a herone. Whatever she could Cud to do, she worked at with all her heart. Plain sewing, embroidery, dre.ss-uiaking, for which she had a talent, aud conceruing which she bad often laugh ingly said, that if shejhad not been rish she might have been famous, everything was undertaken williugly and laboted at uncom plainingly. She accepted the situation, not without some struggles with pride, and luaoy secret tears. . "Well, I suppose I must carry the dress Lome said Laura.. Mis. Stetson thought of the time when a carriage Was at the call of her beautiful darling. 'Dear, can't I take it?' she asked, gazing at her ansiouly. 'You-look, ill.' 'I atu ill that is my head aches; but the walk will do mo good,' Laura rcspon ded. trvini to look bright. 'It is not fur to the Ilaj den's Do you think I would let you carry home my work ? No, indeed!' aud she lent over and kissed her mother's forehead. Out iu the air she felt better. The ne vous depression frotu which she suffered giadunlly left her, as bhc become interested iu the sights aim sounds about her. In guy und beautiful dresses some of her for mer acquaintances passed, a lew with a nod ol recognition, but most without noticing her at i.i liillesiiogs they were, but she held her bundle firmly, liked her bead a trifle higher, and passed bravely on. Turn ing a corner, she came full upon ap unex pected tableau. A smartly-dressed boy, with a feather in his cap, kicked, and strug gled with his nurse, who vainly pulled the obstinate child till her face was purple. 'Why, Lucy ! Why, Benny 1' exclaimed Laurie, for the girl was nurse maid at the Ilayden's aud Benny the youngest hope of the house. 'What's all this ?' 'Deed miss, he's awful," said the girl nearly crying. 'When he makes up his mind, it's a tiger he is, niis3. Jest see him now.' Laura spoke a, few words to the boy iu a Lw totie, and he ceased struggling for a tuomeut. 'We'ri. all at siscs and sevens,' said the nurse, 'and the misses is ai l al nervous. Mr. Dart's j ust rctmued from Californy, without no warning, aud brought a beauti ful young lady with him. I do suppose it's bis wife from what I heard aud it quite up-ct the utiles, aud made .such a time! Now, Penny, there's the police man ; so ycu had better couie.' Laura heard, aud for a moment street aud liou.-es whirled round, so that she 1 ad, much ado to keep from falling; the words rang in her eats 'I do suppose- it's his wile.' Tho strange and suudcu revulsion ol feeling passed, however, leaving her deadly pale.' Certainly, Buit had a per fect right to get married; a pctfect right to forget her of course, he had. ' Men had done such things ever since tho Good, und would, probab'y, to tho cud of time. Otrcr and over again she said he had never committed himself, and yet ia her heart answered that he had, Tl;ose words ho had whispered, had dared to whisper, she said, to herself, with flaming cheeks. What was it ' but an avowel ? What a tingling memory it was! She saw herself as she stood at that mo ment, attired iu the most exquisite fabrics, the acknowledged queen of tho jete; and he, handsome and poor, had brought ans wer to his qucs'ion ou her. very cheeks, in her very eyes. The blood burnt her faco now; but as she canio in sight of the noble dwelling, it receded, leaving her pale and almost faiut. She stormed at herself for being so su premely foolish ; but the tears were very near her tired eyes, for .all that. Hugo trunks blocked up the hall. A loud cheery voice sounded, that struck woefully agaiust her heart; and tbc first person she saw was stalwart, handsome Bart Ilayden, just coming forward as he issued his orders to the men taking the boxes up stairs. What right had he to look eo suddenly raidiaut ? 'Laura my dear Miss Stetson!' ex claimed the young man, hurrying towatd her. But Laura's face was like 6tcel. She made a cold bow ; and did not choose to see the hand he extended. Welcome homo, Mr. Ilayden,' she said, in a cold, set voice. 'I came to bring some ' she could not say work, 'seme thing for your sister. I generally go to her room. Is she thert V He fell back a little Strange how the liu lit weut out of his face 'I I rather think she may be engaged,' he said, in a bluudenng, confused way ; there might havo beeu a little auger in the voice; but yes perhaps you had better go up,' and ha turned on h;s heel. 'He didn't like to speak of his wife, and no wonder,' half sobbed Laura, to herself, a choking tetisation in her throat, It was queer how the stairs bobbed about ; but, perhaps, the thick drops on bis lashes might explain it. 'What iu the duce makes her act so od dly f muttered yourig Haydeo then ia a tenderer voice, 'poor little thing ! it's pride, I suppose ; but she might have seemed just as glad to see me, I think,' aud then he kicked a box out of his path, and went moodily to tho door. . Anno Ilayden was clone. 'So glad you brought it,' she cried, 'and ohl doesn't it look beautiful? What a fairy-fingers you are !' an 1 she shook out the creamy sutiu with exclamations of de light. 'Sit down, won't you ? I've so much to tell you. Bart has come home.' Yes, I kuow it; but T cau't wait not a moment. It will be getting dark, and and ' She grew desperate with the feat that Annie should see tho tears, nnd the trembling mouth ; and stooping snatched up the bill, and placed it in tho hand of her patroness. 'Oh, so sorry ! I suppose you won't mind waiting for your pay till next week ?' 'We are out of coal and wood,' said Laura, her cheeks ctimson; 'and, iu luct, we need the mouey.' Dear me t Dear me ! I was so thoug ht- less to spend every ceut I had. Aut stop I'll "to down and ask Bart,' Laura felt as if she could Biuk through the floor. 'Stop !' she laid, detaining Annie by a hold on her arm, her face quite white and proud again. "I can wait never miud. Of course, I can depend upon you by Wed nesday ?' 'Yes. I'll run round before, perhaps. Must you go? Y'ou don't know how much I've to tell you. Well, then good-night.' Laura hud not worn her veil. The tears were running down her checks as she hastily descended the steps of the palace-like house, and Bart Ilayden, who hap pened to be there, saw them. Oh ! the humiliation of that proud spirit ! She threw a half-defiant glance at the handsome, pitying face ; then, with a gesture that rc pelled him, for he had come toward her. she almost flew down the street, nor hardly drew a breath till sho was at homo. How dreary and meagre it ull looked ! the few cheap dishes, the scanty tablo cloth, the half covered floor, the faded wall paper, tho worn-out chintz oa chairs and lounge. 'I'm dreadfully tired, mamma; let me lie down,' she cried, in a suppressed voice, and threw herself oa tho crcakius old lounge. 'What is the matter, iny darling ? 1 sec she didn't pay of course ; and not a stick of wood in the - house. Oh! the heartlessness of the rich. J thought ' A loud rap. Laura hid her face. Her mother answered the call, and in strode Bart Ilayden, almost defiantly. At least ou will welcome me, Mrs. Stetson he said, the old fine ring in bis voice. Laura sat up calm and cold again. 'Annie sent this by me he said, and laid a scaled envelope on the tablo. 'When did you get home ?' asked Mrs. Stetson, as sho bad recovered from her sur prise. 'Only a few hours ago was Bartts reply. 'I brought cousin Jack's wifo with me ; she was ordered home for her health, and Jack couldn't leave, so I took Muttie in charge. Poor girl ! I am afraid tome is not goiug to help her much, cr, indeed, anything else.' Laura made an almost imperceptible movement. Sho was fur from cold, now; her. very temples burned. Well, good-night he said, stealing a glaoco at Laura, as he rose, after answer ing Mrs Steisou' inquires. 'I've done my erraud, and, Mrs. Ctctson, you at least, wiil let me come, sometimes, and talk with you, won't you, for the sake of'old times?' The mother's reproving eyes were fast ened upon Laura. What did 'the girl mean by acting in this way ? To be sure '.' was her quick answaer, if you will come to so humble a place, 'leu see how tho wheel has gone round with us. Pcor Mr- Stettoa ' and the widuw could go uo further. 'Yes, I bcaid he said, pityiugly, 'long ago. Anne wiote to me. But I am not one of the fickle kind ; Mix Stetsuu.' This with a reproachful glaoco at Laura. 'Good-night !' he said, the next uiiuute, and bowed to both ladies. He had reached the door, when a faiut voice called, 'Bart!' Yes, it was Laura's eager cry. She was ashamod of what she bad done, and heart ily repenting. lie came back a balf-euppressed eager ness in hut manner, his glance wary, but uxioua- 'I wns just a l'ui'.e rude to-night,' eho said, looking dangerously beautiful ia ber humility. 'Pleaso forget jt.' . 'Indeed I will ;' and be seised her pret ty little band, his eyes radieut. 'I under stand ! 0, ycsl I quite understand you were always such a seniitive little creature! So you forgive me, eh ?' he blundered. 'It was you who were to forgive tie, I believe said Laura, demurely, her lips quivering, ready to cry, and to laugh, too, 'Mrs. Stetson, will you allow mo to whis per?' asked straightforward Burt. 'Certainly !' said the old lady, her heart beatiog quicker. What was goiug to hap pen ? Had poverty dono its worst for them?. Was there, tudeed, bright hope for the future? Bart put up his full, shining beard close to Laura's car, and the second time said tho mystio words, that had so long lingcrcdja her memory. - Laura did not repulse him. He felt then that her . heart belonged to him, that it had not gono out to any other. So it happoned that, after that eveniog, Bart U9yden kept calling, and that the widow invariably left the two young pcoclo together; and the end of it was, a brilliant wedding in less than a year. CLIPPINGS. Every point of thought is the centre of an intellectual world. The remembcrances of past happinesa are the wrinkles of the soul. Man should not dispute or assert, but whisper results to his neighbors. All severity whioli does not tend to in crease good or prevent evil, is idlo. What a pity that common sense, for want of use, should have become niucom uioo. Lr.ws are like grapes, that being ptcssed too hard, ycild a hard and uuwholcsome wine. Poetry should striko the reader as a wording of his own highest thought, and appcaralmonst as a remembrance. To exchange a present good for a prom ised better, is giving a greater credit to dictate. Weddings often leave the old familiar hearts and places as haunted empty as fu nerals. They are tho funerals ot old asso ciations. Tho great struggghw of life are limited to moments ; in the drooping of the head upon the bosom in the pressure of the "baud upon the brow. Conscience is asleecinor criant: wn mnv lull him into a longer or shorter slumber; but Ins starts are lnghtful, aud ternb.e us the hour when he awakes. The greater importance we attach to our opinions, the greater our intolerance, which is wrong even when we are right, and doubly so when we are in error, so persecution lor opinion's sake can never be justifiable. Do not command children under six vests of age to keep anything secret, not even the pleasure you may be preparing as a turpi i&e Iit a dear friend. The cloudless heaven of a vmithlul nnen.lieni tiil nis aliould not bo overcast, not even by the r. sy dawn ot shyness, otherwise childien will soon learn to conceal their secret s as well as ycurs. The Small Bihds. Theiittle painted songsters follow man, and attend upon him. It is their mission to clear his ground and trees of insects which would otherwisa destroy his lruit aud gruiu. What would the country be without its birds? Their iunoceut notes gladden the ear, and their beautiful forms and plumage deligct tho eye. A pair of robius have beeu known lo consume two thousand caterpillars in one week's work ! The Jarmer who shoo ? the small birds thut confidentially turrouod his dwc!l'.u0', errs both in judgment and benevolence. What if the sougsters take tithe of the ripened produce of field and garden ; it is nothing but their due.
