Oir? a Kind Word to ibo Krrlng.
Give a kind word to the erring It may raise a fallen brother; And the law of Heaven teaches We should kindly teach eaeh other. Ahl the patho of vice are many; And when tempted and when tried, Remember thou art mortal, And thy feet may turn aside. Give a kind word to the erring, Who have trod the paths of Bin, For the tempter, too, may woo thee, And thy feet may ran therein. Ail along Ufe's rugged pathway Stones are bruising weary feet; Thistles spring among the flowers Tares are growing with the wheat. And the Master in His vineyard Hath a work for you to do, For the harvest there is plenteous, Bat the laborers there are few. Tarry not-the day is waning, And the night is coming on, And the Master will reward you For the work thy hand hath done. II from out ono blooding bosom Yon havo pjn?kod tho hitter thors; If you've cheered the drooping spirit When its every hope was gone; If you've stretched the hand in kindness To lead erring, straying foot, There's a rich reward awaits you And love's labor, too, is sweet. If\ along life's ragged highway You have raised a drooping flower; If thy smUe hath evor gladdened For one heart a gloomy hour It hath placed a star to glitter In the angel Crown abovo. Ahl Ufe mission hero is holy, When we make it one of lovel Ohl remember, then, the erring! Thou mayst lift the soul again, And from some poor, bleeding bosom, Wipe away the guilty stain. All the world is one broad vineyard, Where there's work for each to do; For tho harvest there is plenteous, Bat the laborers are fewl Work, then-Life's sun is setting, And the night of Death corons nn: And the Master at bia coming Will oxpeot thy work well doncl THE U0$T POCKETBOOK* It was a cheerless afternoon. A "biting, freezing wind drove the slow? ly-sifting snow before it like a blind? ing mist; and the clouds hung so low as almost to touch the black roofs of the houses. "How desolate it is," Mrs. Halpino sighed, glancing out from her attic window on the gloomy prospeot be? low, as she smoothed ana folded the garment she had just completed; "and the cold's bitter. I don't like to send you ont, Louies, but there's not a lamp of coal, or a dust of flour, and "Willie must have that medicine. I'd go myself but-", "Oh, mother, nol let me go-I don't mind if it is cold. "I'll hurry book;" and tho little girl sprang np from her low seat beside the infant's oradle, and began to fasten on her faded cloak and hood. "Well, I suppose you must," the mother continued, as she wrapped np the delicately embroidered gar? ment. Yon know the place? Mr. Rawdon's, on Tenth street-that brown stone." "Yes, yes, mother! I know." "Well, dear, run fast, and keep yourself warm, and say to Mrs. Hawdon, that I'd have finished the work before, if Willie hadn't been so sick. Three dollars she owes me. Yon can call by the baker's and get a loaf or two." The child took the bundle and vanished out of sight down the dreary flights of steps; while tho mother turned back to the cradle, where the sick child lay. He held np his little hands and moaned pite? ously. "Give me some tea, mamma, I'm so dry." "Yes, darling, justas soon as Louise conies." Her eyes filled with tears as she raised the little fellow to her bosom, clasping him closely to* keep him warm, for there was no fire in the stove, and the desolate attic room was very comfortless. Yet there had been a day when this same pale faced, meek-eyed woman, sat in a luxurious chamber, with every com? fort that heart could wish within her reach; and a doting husband's strong arms of love to encircle and protect her. But ber husband was dead, lying unknown on some distant bat? tle-field, and her riches had made themselves wings and flown away. Forlorn and friendless, sick at heart, and weary from incessant toil, she sat, with her wailing babe upon her bosom, gazing out with hopeless, tear? ful eyes, upon the dismal scene be? neath her attic window. In the meanwhile, little Louise made her way through narrow by? streets, and squallid alleys, into the most populous and fashionable parts of the city. The biting wind still continued to blow with a dreary, saddening wail, drifting the low, leaden clouds, and tho mist-like snow. But she walked on bravely, and reached at last, Mrs. Rawdon's. A - dazzling glow of light poured from all the lofty windows, and sounds of mnsic and merry-making floated out upon the frosty air. MVq Rawdon was giving a grand party in honor of her eldest daughter's birth-night, i Louise crept up tho marble steps, and pulled tho bell. A footman in 1. livery answered her timid summons. "Can I see Mrs. Rawdon, please, ; sir?" she asked. "See Mrs. Rawdon, indeod! and ; she in the parlor in the very middle . of the company? Of course you can't." He was closing tho door, but Louise caught at his sleevo and cried im? ploringly, "O, sir, please wait! Hero's tho "WOik sho wanted; Miss Violet's frock, you know. Mother promised it by to-night; do let me take it np to her. The man hesitated a moment, and then turned back. "Miss Violet's frock," he said; "she wanted it, I know. I heard her fussing because it didn't come home. Maybe she'll see you. I'll try, any? how. Come here and wait. Loni so followed him through tbe arched hall, and past the glittering parlors, into a kind of ante-room, adjoining the] snpper apartment. Motioning her to a seat, he went in search of his mistress. Bat it was a full half hour before Mrs. Rawdon could disengage herself from her guests; and poor little Louise, tired out with waiting, and benumbed with cold, was jost on the point of burst? ing into tears, when the lady stepped into the room. "This is a pretty business, now, isn't it?" she began, as she received and unfolded the bundle that Louise proffered her. "I thought you pro? mised to bring this yesterdy?" "Yes, ma'am; but little Willie was so sick that mother couldn't sew." "O, yes! that's always the way you've some excuse ready; but I shan't trust you again, you may de? pend on it. Here Violet's been crying lor an hour, and refused to come down because she was so disappoint? ed about her dress. John, ring the bell for Jane to take it up to her. I must go back to the parlor now." She was sweeping out again, her satin robes rustling after her; but Louise sprang up with a piteous cry. "O, ma'am! little brother's so ill, and must have his medicine; please let me have the money!" "I can't to-night-I'm entirely out cf chasge. You CHU oui! Guy after to-morrow." But Louise was nobto be repulsed. She caught the lady's hand in both of her little, frozen palms. One di the rings that adorned Mrs. Rawdon 'e soft fingers would have procured all the comforts her mother and little Willie BO sorely needed. Some such thought flashed through the child's mind as she mode her appeal. "O, madam?" she said, her blue 'eyes full of imploring entreaty, "you are rich and happy, and have all you want; but my poor mother has no? thing; and my little brother will die without medicine! Do let me have the money!" Mrs. Rawdon shook her off im? patiently. , "I tell you I've no change. Yon must coll again. John, show her tc the door!" The footman obeyed, and Louise soon found herself upon tho marble steps, while the lofty door closed ir her very face with a heartless slam. The wind howled more dismally thai ever, and the keen, stinging sleet fell like a shower of shot. Louise de scended the steps, and crossed ovei to the opposite side-walk with a dull, aching pain at her heart, that almos! took away her breath. How could sho go back to her desolate home, and tell her poor mother that she had failed to collect her hard earned wages; tell her that they were nol able to buy even so much as a soli tary loaf? Was it right that othen should have so much, while thej lacked daily bread? Just then, some thing beneath her foot, soft and slip pery, almost threw her to the pave ment. Looking down, she saw t pocket-book. She caught it up witl a suppressed cry, and, thrusting i into her bosom, darted off at th< speed of an antelope. At lost, out o breath, and half beside herself witl excitement, she paused beneath < lamp-post, and after glancing steal tin ly around her, drew the treasun from her bosom. It was large, thick and heavy. Her fingers fluttere< nervously as she unclasped it; am when she canght sight of the greei notes. it contained, she uttered a cr of delight, and darted off again lik something insane. Mother and Willi should have all they needed now. Just beyond tho baker's shop, to ward which she bent her steps, soldier met her. "Little girl," he said, arresting he flying steps, "you didn't find a pockel book os you came along, did you?" Louise paused a single] instant, he heart fluttering like a frightene bird; then, as a thought of her mc ther and Willie flashed through he mind, she answered: "No, sir!" "Well, it is gone, I suppose," an the soldier passed on; while Louie hurried away in tho opposite direc tion. Dy the time she reached the bak< ry she was in a tremor from hea to foot, and her cheeks seemed o fire; but she drew the pocket-boo from its hiding-place, and standin outside tho door, unclasped it, an took out a note. The shop wi crowded with customers, and she ha to wait for her turn before she cou! ..'./t..m vtliuii out) wanted. lier ey< wandered wistfully around the temp ing shelves. She would buy t many loaves; and even that froste cake. They would have coal ar floor. Why not? Tho pockot-boc was hers; she had found it. Sti her hands trembled, and hor cheel burned. She glanced down nt tl note she held and saw, with a sta of horror, that it was for fifty dollar What had she done? Robbed th man of his monoy-and ho a soldie Her father had been a soldier. Wi a sharp cry, clutching the pook? book in one hand, ond tho fifty doll bill in the other, she darted from tl shop, and down the snowy street. Just a square or two beyond the glit? tering mansion of Mrs. Rawdon, she overtook the soldier. He was Walk? ing slowly, glancing fruin one side of the icy pavement to the other, with an anxious, despairing look on his face. Louise was at his side in an instant. "O, sir!" panting for breath, her hood thrown back, her bine eyes wild and startled, and hor bright hair blown all about her flushed face, "I did find your pocket-book-here it is. I took this note ont, but couldn't spend it. Mother's almost starved, and little "Willie will die without his medicine, but I can't steal-I can't-; take it back!" The soldier took the money from tho half frozen little hands that hold it up to him, then lifting the child in his arms, ho smoothed bock her tangled locks, and looked down into her pale, tear stained little face with eager, startled oyes; his swarthy cheek grow pale, and his bearded lips began to tremble. "Lou" Louise," he said, his voice full of thrilling tenderness; "poor little darling, don't you know me?" The child looked up, and then her cry of wild delight rang out clear and joyous. "O, papa! we thought you were dead; but you've come back to UE again." "Yes, darling!" his broad chest heaving with suppressed eagerness. "Where's your mother? Tako me to her." Louise sprang from his arms, and shot off like an arrow down the (bril? liant streets, through the squalid al? leys and dark bye-lanes: and the sol? dier followed her. Mrs. Halpine sat in her comfortless attic, hushing her sick child upon 1 un? bosom. "Mamma, I'm so hungry; please give me some tea," the little fellow moaned, clasping his hot arms about her neck. But the last spark of fire had gone out, and Louise did not come. "Wait a moment, darling-just a moment longer. And the patient little one waited, and the cold, gray shadows settled down darker and darker; and the poor mother clasped the child closer to her bosom, dreaming of happy days gone by, and of tho dear husband who had gone to his last long home, with no tender hand to close his eyes. The shadows grew heavier and darker, tho winds moaned dismally; the snow and sleet tinkled sharply against the windows. "Oh, mamma! please make a light, I'm cold, and the dark makes mo afraid." "Wait a little bit longer, darling; Louise will soon come." At last there was a noiso below, a bounding, joyous step upon the stairs, and Louise burst into the room, her face glowing and radiant. "Oh, mothejr!" she cried, "father's rot dead-he's alive-he's come back to us again!" The soldier's wife rose to her feet, grasping at tho bed-post for support; os she did so, strong arms clasped, her to a warm and loving bosom. Louise crept to her father's feet, her blue eyes swimming with tears. "Oh, father! what if I had keptit?" she asked, with tears in her eyes. "Then, dear, you would not have found me. Always remember that wrong wins its punishment, and right its reward." $600 REWARD! South Carolina Railroad Company, GEN'L SUrERINTEND'S OFFICE, OCTOBEB 14, 1867.
