' Cro?* i nd Crown?
There la a croea of heavy weight
-'.For every human life to bear,
There ia a chaplet formed of thorne,
*For each and every brow to wear;
Obi when the croea of pain and woe
? Shall soon forever be laid down,
Hay we receive, in r?compense,
A beautiful and fadeless crown.
?croes of toil and worldly grief,
A borden of suspenso and care,
Baa life imposed upon us all,
And each its heavy load must bear;
The cloud? may lower overhoad,
The bright stars fade boforo our oyea,

" Where sacrifice, where duty lies.
A crown awaits each faithful heart,
Each earnest, self-denying soul.
That carries cheorrahy the cross
To death's cold unrelenting goal;
And when the voil shall roll away,
Disclosing heaven's endless buss,
The crown of love shall co m per. nat o
The croBS of ?u<:h a life as this.
It was a bitter cold night in Janu?
ary-a night when the homeless
wanderers of the moor might havo
sunk down frozen to death, nod the
?marrow seemed to congeal in one's
.'There's ono great advantage in

in tho corner seat, "wind and wea?

like this, but the iron horse keeps
straight ahead, whether thermometer

Just then, the conductor eutered
"It's a dreadful night, conductor,"
said I, feeling with stiffened lingers
for my ticket.
"Dreadful," said the conductor;
"the brakesmen can't livo outside, so
I look the other way when the poor
fellows creep in to get a breath of
warm air at the stoves. We haven't
bod Huch a night since a year ago
come the second of February, when
Harry Rockfield, the bagguge-master,
froze his feet, and a woman got off at
Grothersville, with her baby in her
arms a corpse. "
"Frozen to death?"
"Aye, frozen to death, aud the
poor thing never thought but what
. it was asleep. *My baby's cold,' says
she, 'but we'll warm it when we get
home.' It was just such a night as
And the conductor opened the
door, and plunged across the cou?
pling iuto tho next car, crying out
It was quito a considerable town
with a handsome depot, naring lamps,
and the usual crowd around the plat?
form, with bands in their pockets,
and cigar ends flaming in tho night.
Our car was nearly tho last of thc
long traiu, and but ono passengei
entered-a slender young girl, wrap?
ped in a grey blanket shawl, hat oi
grey straw, trimmed with some co?
lored velvet flowers. Sho seemed tc
hesitate, like one unused to traveling,
and finally sat down near tho door.
"Pardon me, young lady," said I
"but you bad better como near th?
She started, hesitated au instant
and thou obeyed.
"Does this, train go to Edinburg?'
sho asked, in a voice so delicately
soft and sweet that it seemed to thril
"Yes. Can I bo of any service t<

"Only at Tay lowville."
She drew u deep sigh, scemingl;
of relief, nod settled buck in th
corner. By the light of the lam]
that huug opposite, I could seo he
face, that of a lovely child. Appa
rently she was ti ot more than sixteen

and a little rosy mouth, like that o

lowed the progress of time to escape
I glanced at my watch ; it was only
half-pasteleven, ?td i knew we were
not due at Taylorville until a few
minutes after 12 o'clock. I rubbed the
frost from the window-pane, and look?
ed out. We had stopped . at a lonely
Way station, in the midst of a dense
"Is this Taylorsville?"
It was the voice of my pretty tra?
"No; 1 don't know wbat place it is;
"Does this train stop at way sta?
"Not generally; but they mnst have
been specially signaled here. You

"It is cold," she said, in z. scarcely
audiblo voice, drawing her shawl
around her. "Ob, I wish they would
"We are moving ngain," I said.
I "Conductor," for the man of tickets
was now passing through the car:
"Why did we stop at that buck woods
"Out of water," was the reply, as
he hurriedly passed on.
Now I know perfectly well that
this answer waa not the true solution
of the matter. Our delay hud not
excecdod a minute-altogether too
short a time for replenishing a tender
with water; and where on earth was
the water to come from on that deso?
late stretch of a barren woods.
Five minutes after, tho conductor
nguin entered the car, und I mude
room for him at my side.
"Sit down, conductor-you've
nothing to do this minute."
"What did you mean by telling
such a fib just now?"
I spoke under breath; he replied,
iu the ramo tone:
"About tho reason you stopped just
"To tell the truth, I stopped to
take on a single passenger-a gentle?
man who has come down from Edin?
"For the pleasure of traveling
once more over the same route?"
"Exactly so-for the pleasure of
traveling in certain society. Don't
be alarmed for your own 6afoty-it's
a detective policeman."
I was about to repeat the words in
astonishment, when he motioned mc
"Where is he?"
"Tho detective? He sets by tht
door yonder, with a ragged fur cap
pulled over bis eyes. Did you cvei
see a more perfect specimen of th<
I smiled-I could hardly help it.
"A murdor-a mau and his wifi
and two children-their throats out?
last night, and the house set on fin
"Great Heavens! What a mon
ster!" I exclaimed.
We hud continued tbeconversatioi
in a whisper throughout, and Hu
conductor now loft me to study th
faces of my fellow-passengers, witl
curious dread und horror.
Somehow, often as I revolved th
matter in my mind, my fancy wouli
settle on tho coarse, gross-lookin?
man opposite, with a bushy bean
and a shaggy wool coat, with tb
collar turned up around the ears,
felt convinced that this mau, witl
the brutal eyes and tho heavy hang
ing jaws, was the Cain. As I looke
furtively across, I caught the wide
open blue orbs of tho fair little girl.
Obeying the instantaneous impuls
of my heart, I arose and went ove
"You heard what we were saying
j "Yes-a murder-oh, how horri
ble!" said she.
I "Do not be frightened-no on
shall hurt you."
Slio smiled up in my fuco with
sweet smile of innocence.
Our stay at Taylorsvillo was bi
brief; but during tho delay I coul
see that tho watchful detective hu
changed his sent to ono nearer tl
brutish man in the shaggy coat.
"See," faltered the young gir
"tliey locked the car doors at Ta;

She was right.
"Probably they wer? fearful th
the criminal should escape," I r
marked, in nu under-toue.
..Win you-may 1 trouble you I
get me a onp of water?"
I rose and made my way towan
tho ice cooler by the door, but wi
difficulty, for the tr?in was in" rap
motion. To my disappointment tl
tin goblet was chained to tho cook
"No matter," BRO said, with ? win?
ning emile, "I will come myself;". *
I drew the water and held np tho
oap; bat instead of toking it as abe
approached, aha bruehed euddenly
past ms, opened the door, and rushed
out on the platform. '
"Stop ber! stop herl" shouted the
detective, springing to his feet. "She
will be killed; conductor, brakesman,
There was a rush-a tumult-a
bustle; I was first upon tho platform;
but it was empty and deserted save
by a haii frozen brakesman, who
"She went past me like a shadow,
and jumped off just as we crossed
Cairn turnpike road," he stammered.
"Jumped off the express train !
well," shrugging his shoulders, "she
must have been killed instantly.
What mad folly."
"It's five hundred dollars out of
my pocket," said the detective, rue?
fully. "I didn't want a row before
we got to Ediuburg, but I was a con?
founded fool. A woman cornered
will do anything, I believe."
"What!" I ejaculated, "you don't
mean that thnt child-"
"I mean," said tho detective culm
ly, "that that child, as you caliber,
is At : illa Burton, a married woman
of twenty-six years of age, who, last
night, murdered four persons in cold
blood, and was trying to escapo into
Canada. That is what I mean."
The train was stopped, and a party
of us, headed by tho conductor and
the detective, went back to search for
any trace of tho beautiful youug
creature, whoso loveliness and appa?
rent iunoconce had appealed to my
sympathies so earnestly. Nor was it
long before we found her lying dead
by the side of the track, frightfully
mangled by the force of thc fall, and
mutilated almost beyond recognition.
"Well, she's escaped justice in
this world, if not in the next," said
tho detective, gloomily, as he stood
lookiug dowu upon her remains.
"Do you supposa that she expect?
ed to bo able to spring off tho mov?
ing train without injury!" I asked.
"Without much injury-yes, wo?
men are unreasonable creatures, but
I never dreamed of any such insano
folly, or I should have taken prompt
measures to prevent it."
They lifted the fair dead thing, and
carried it to the nearest place of
refuge-a lonely farm house among
tho hills, and we returned to tho
train, reaching Edinburg only a few
minutes behind tho regular time.
Aud when iu tho next morning's
papers I read an account of the mur?
deress, I thought of tho ?louder
creature's bluo eyes, and rose-bud
mouth, with a pitying thrill at my
