Dear, sweet and charming little elf,
From everlasting love and self.
From greed of gold and love of pelf,
Spare her, good Lord.
If failing on her bed she lay
Alone, with all but God away.
From pain severe and long delay,
Spare her, good Lord.
If one of all the sons of men,
His fondest soul shall ofter, then
From unresponsive love again,
Spare her, good Lord.
From scornful sneer and biting jest,
When of her heart she gives the best,
Send her solace in lasting rest,
Spare her, good Lord.
From mortal days, unloved, alone,
When ripened to a woman grown,
Mysterious freak?a woman lone?
Spare her, good Lord.

1 Tie Death of a Soward, 1
e a
THE boy leant wearily against
the bulwark rails, watching
the lights as they came up
one by one on the coast. The
plunging of the ship still made the
head reel, and he was weak from want
of food. He seemed altogether apart
from the stir and life that three hundred
emigrants on board created. His
whole soul was filled with a dumb
and impotent protest against his fate,
and the life before him. Old Captain
Malcom had shown little wisdom
When he sent his only son to sea to
have some pluck knocked into him.
In the father's defence it may be
said that he was utterly unable to
realize the timidity and sensitiveness
of the boy. All his ancestors had
been rough seamen who had faced
storm and danger on every sea, and
courage and nerve were hereditary
qualities. And now the last of the
Malcoms seemed more of a girl than
any of his five sisters.
All the exhortations to manliness,
all the covert reproaches that came
from his father, were so many darts
that rankled and festered in his scul,
but failed to compel his nature to
,be other than he was. The boy
was made for peace, for tne quiet
and uneventful life that an office in
his native town could have offered
under his mother's watchful care.
Instead, he was here, an apprentice
on the iteamsbip Pride of Asia, a
big ca^go boat just off the ships on the
Tyne, and carrying emigrants to the
The aliip's doctor came out of the
saloon in the poop to go his evening
rouml below. With him was his wife,
a slight, girlish figure, wrapt in a
heavy cloak. She turned at the ladder
which led to the lower deck, and was
about to go back, when eyes
fell on ^he boy. She had noticed him
once or twice before, and his white
face and lonely air roused the womanly
sympathy in her. She touched
him lightly on the shoulder ana saia:
"You are leaving home, like me."
The boy started. A slight color
sprang to his cheeks, and tears to his
eyes. He smiled faintly, showing a
gap where tw? teeth had been
knocked out by a smaller boy in the
only fight he had ever had at school.
"Yes, ma'am," he replied.
' "You must feel lonely," she said;
"but you will soon be back, and then
every one will think so much of you."
Her voice had something caressing
and inviting about it; and so his confidence,
overcoming his shyness and
reserve, broke bounds. He told her
everything?bow he would hate this
life, how all filled him with fear and
disgust, the cold aud darkness, the
chaff and horreplay of his fellow-apprentices,
the indifference of every
one around him. He told how iin
possible it was to come up to his
father's standard, how he felt he was
a born coward, and that he wotrld
always be one, shrinking instinctively
from the danger and excitement
Jthat bolder natures took
pleasure in.
She listened sympathetically. Her
hand had patted him once or twice,
and encouraged him to go on. "When
he ended, she said: "You must not
be too hard on yourself. It is not
always those who fear the least that
are bravest in the end. When the
time ponies. I am sure you will do
your duty."
The boy hoard her listlessly. * He
had little heart to respond to any appeal
to his manliness. There seemed
uo time when lie would not shrink
from hardship or danger. lie almost
felt as if his confidence had been misplaced.
and that she had understood
nothiug after all.
She jsaw the change, and her interest
in him somewhat waned.
Courage to a woman is the primary
quality in the other sex, and nothing
will compensate for the lack of it. She
bade him good night and turned away

In a few minutes the second mate
passed along the deck and told the
toy to go below. Then all was quiet.
A few hours later the Pride of Asia
was steaming at "slow." with her
whistle going every few minutes. The
Channel fog girt the ship like a
shroud. The Captain walked the
bridge uneasily. No tempest or rookbound
shore gives the anxiety that
a fog on this waterway of the nations
does. Danger is imminent
everywhere, and the most careful
seamanship Is no guarantee of safety.
So it was now. A hoarse shout enme
from the man on the lookout. The
Captain sprang to the telegraph, and
as "Full speed aslern" rang out a
large sailing ship took form in the
fog. and in a few seconds crashed into
the steamer in front of the bridge.
The Pride of Asia shook from stem
to stern, heeled over to starboard,
and then be.can to force ahead, while
the oihtr went pounding along her
side, wrenching the port boats from
her davits and stavius them in with
her bow-sprit, 'then she passed away
as a ghost in tho fog.
The Priue o( Asia had met lior death
wound. At oacc nil was noise nnd
confusion. The emigrants came pouring
up oa deck, screaming and shouting
with terror. Some of the sailors
rushed to clcar tho boats, but a sharp
order from the Captain stopped them.
In a lew seconds the Captain had
decidcd on his course. The remaining
boats would not carry a hundred
and fifty people. Theic were more
than twice that number on board.
On the olher hand. the land this aho

The mate ran forward, and with t
help of the carpenter tore off pa
of the hatch covering and sprang

young Malcom peered aimlessly ov
the hatch".
"Bring down a lantern," cried t:
mate, and Malcolm, galvanized in
activity by fear, seized a lantern fro
the al)ej*ways and clambered dov
into the hold.
The mate ran toward the iron do

Suddenly he stopped. An idea ha

Common Sense In Dishwashing.
Dishwashing, by the general consen* 1
sus of opinion, would seem to be the
most unimportant task in the whole
realm of housework. An inexpe- '
rlenced girl or a very young girl may !
be considered good in so far as being
able to at least wash the dishes,
and sometimes she is allowed to wash
them her own way without let or hindrance.
But even about dishwashing
there is a right way and several wrong
ways. One Of the latter consists in
putting everyAing from teacups and
silverware to cooking, utensils through
the same water, which grows more
and more mixed as the process goes
on, and then drying these same dishes
without putting them through hot
rinsing water. Common sense should
Bhow the necessity of changing the
washing water frequently, because it
grows qold as well as dirty. Common
sense should also dictate that a good
hot rinsing water is a necessity that
will free the dishes from soapiness.
Without plenty of hot water and plenty
of clean towels clean sweet dishes
are an impossibility, and no one who
has ever had experience with rough
dishes need be told of their disagree-able

Zos? Hair
" My hair came out by the handful,
and the gray hairs began to
creep in. I tried Ayer's Hair vigor,
and it stopped the hair from coming
out and restored the color."?
Mrs. M. D. Gray, No. Salem, Mass.
There's a pleasure in
offering such a preparation
as Ayer's Hair Vigor.
It gives to all who use it
such satisfaction. The
I hair becomes thicker,
longer, softer, and more
glossy. And you feel so
securc in using such an
old and reliable preparation.
