To the dripping window-sills.
Laughing rain-drops, light anti swift.
Through the air they fall and silt;
Thro’ the street,
With their thousand merry feet.
Every blade of grass around
Is a ladder to the ground;
On they come
With their busy zip and hum.
In the woods, by twig and spray,
To the roots they ttnd their way;
Down they go
To the waiting life below.
Oh, the brisk aud merry rain,
Bringing gladness in its train!
To its cheery sound!

MAl’ll PENNYFEATHER'S AMBITION
It was an exkilerating spectacle that
the people of Chepachet b. hJd one Janu
ary afternoon; the picture of a grown
mau pulling and tugging a small boy
aloug Main street. The man was Mr.
John Denike; the boy Terry McGuire,
Of the ludicrousness of the scene Mr,
Denike was not unconscious. His face
was red, aud wore au expression of min
gled vindictiveness and shame. To add
to his discomfiture, a youug lady, coining
in an opposite direction checked her
steps as she observed his plight, and then
stopped short in his way.
• Why, Terry!’ she exclaimed in a tone
of reproach, ‘what is the matter?’
Denike had stopped but still held the
boy who was crying with all his might
The lady looked up inquiringly from
Terry to the gentleman.
‘This boy has been trying to pick my
pocket,’ he said, ‘and I am going to make
an example of him.’ Then he added, ‘are
you particularly interested in him?’
‘He is one of my Sunday School schol
ars,’ she added quietly.
Joliu Denike shrugged his shoul
ders, aud the girl saw and resented the
‘You mean he doesn’t do credit to my
teachings,’ she said hotly; ‘1 don’t sup
pose he does. 1 have him just one hour
iu the week. You expect that I should
offset that against the one hundred and
sixty-seven, when he is under other in
John felt uncomfortable. This em
phatic young person was certainly not
afraid to speak her mind. He looked
down at the boy.
‘Will you ever steal anything again?’
he asked. The child could hardly speak
through his tears.
-‘No, I won’t,’ he cried, ‘if you’ll le’me
John loosed his hold and the boy did
not wait for permission. Iu a breath he
was around the corner and out of sight.
The young lady bowed gravely. ‘Thank
you very much,’ she said. John stepped
aside, raised his hat, and in a moment she
was gone. He smiifcd to himself as he
went on his way. Indeed he was rather
relieved. It had been au episode, and
the girl was certainly bright and pretty.
He pul his hand in his pocket and drew
it out again with an air of satisfaction.
The handkerchief was there. It occur
red to him that he might also confirm
the safety of his pocket-book. He felt
iu the opposite pocket—felt in vain. The
pocket-book was gone. He stopped short
in the street. lam afraid his thoughts
were not strictly evangelical. ‘The little
beast!’he exclaimed with angry empha
sis. ‘There was at least thirty dollars in
it—aud Nellie’s picture besides!’ and
then reviling his folly in letting the boy
go, and wondering if it would be of auy
use to sock the police, he turned slowly
toward his home.
Miss Pennyfeather, as she went on her
way, was scarcely less disgusted than
Denike himself, without knowing as yet
the depth of Terry’s turpitude. She
could not deny that his conduct was
the saddest kind of commentary on her
teaching. Fancy her added annoyance,
when, on going to Sunday School the next
day, she detected Terry McGuire exhibit
ing to the other boys a pocket-book which
she kue w could not be his, and which,
under compulsion, he tearfully confessed
to have stolen from the gentleman the
day before. Miss Pennyfeather appro
priated the pocket-book. There were
papers in it, a photograph of a wonder
fully pretty girl, but not a cent of
‘Where is the money, Terry?’ she asked
The boy blubbered. He knew Miss
Pennyfeather too well to attempt any
‘I took it out,’ he cried.
‘How much was it?’
‘Yes you do, Terry,’ emphatically.
There was a minute's silence.
‘Come, Terry, you might as well tell
The boy fairly jumped.
‘There was five dollars,’ he stammer
‘There was teu dollars in another
‘How much more,Terry!’
The boy looked at Mi<s Pennyfeather
and learned from her expression the use
lessness of deceit.
‘There was a place inside,’ he growled,
in a barely audible tone, ‘as had seventeen
dollars and a half in it.’
Miss Pennyfeather went over the items
in her mind.
‘That makes thirty-two dollars and a
half,’ she said. ‘Now, Terry McGuire,
give that money to me.’
And Terry, with another side look at his
determined teacher, extracted it from his
pocket and did as he was told. The sum
was correct. Miss Pennyfeather restored
it to the pocket-book, and looked Terry
severely iu the eye. ‘For next Sunday’s
lesson/ she said, ‘you will loam the eighth
‘Know it already,’ growled Terry, ‘yer
taught it to us last Sunday.’
So she had. And Miss Pennyfeather
felt all t ie more discouraged.
For two days John Denike carried re
sentment in his heart. He went so far
indeed as to hold the girl altogether re
sponsible for his misfortune. ‘lf she
had taught the boy not to steal/ this was
his argument, ‘1 shouldn't have lost Nel
lie’s picture. So, on Monday afternoon
when ho met her again at almost the
same spot, he looked across the street
and would have passed on, but that sho
put herself again directly in his way.
‘Excuse mo/ sho began, her face all
aglow with a senso of her disagreeable
position, ‘but I came this way on purpose
to meet you.’
John bowed. Frank, he thought.
Perhaps the girl interpreted his reflec
tion, for the color deepened on her face,
as she continued:
‘I was very much grieved yesterday,
to find that you Had lost your pocket
book. lam glad to be able to restore it
to you.’ And with these words she
placed the article in his hand. ‘Will you
please see if the contents are right?’ she
He opened it mechanically, glanced at
tho picture, and seemed to draw a satis
fied breath. ‘I dare say it’s all right,’ he
‘Will you please count the money?’
Here was certainly a very positive

young lady. John did as ho was request
‘is it right?’ she said.
‘Oh yes,’he said, ‘quite right;’ and
then, after a second’s pause—‘quite right.
I’m sure I’m much obliged to you. It
didn’t make so much difference about the
money, but should have hated to lose the
What did Miss penny feather care
about the picture? ‘Oh, certainly,’ she
said in an iudifferent way, and moved a
little apart, as though on the point of
‘Are you walking up Main street?’ he
Miss Pennyfeather bowed.
‘And may I accompany you!’
‘lf you want to.’
‘Perhaps 1 ought to introduce myself.
My name is Denike—John Denike.
Miss Pennyfeather bowed again. She
had heard of Mr. Denike, and knew him
to be a member of the State Legislature,
but of course, she did not say so. Proba
bly Mr. Deoike was now on bis way from
the State House at tho head of Main
‘1 aui Miss Pennyfeather,’ she remarked
in a quiet way.
John Denike was now entirely reconcil
‘You will pardon me,’ he said, after a
moment, while they walked along together,
Tor my implied reflection in my manner
Of course 1 will/ she said calmly. ‘lt
was the most natural thing in the world.
There isn’t a man in Chepachet who
wouldn’t have expressed the same
thought, and if the boy, Mr. Denike,
grows up to be hung, some one will write
his obituary aud say, in early life he
went to Sunday school and enjoyed the
religious instructions of Miss Maud Pen
nyfeather. If Miss Pennyfeather had
done her duty by her scholar, would
Terry McGuire now be in a felon’s
The girls’cheeks were flushed aud her
voice had a severe tone.
‘Excuse me, Miss Pennyfeather/ said
Denike, gravely, ‘I think you overrate your
She shook her head and looked him
earnestly in the face.
‘But somebody is responsible, Mr.
Denike; if not I, who is it? There are
hundreds of such children in Chepa
chet. They don’t go to school. I’m a
public school teacher, and there are not
half a dozen of that sort in the building.
They won’t come, the principal doesn’t
want them if they would. In Sunday
school my class is the only one of tho
kind, and that wouldn't be there if I
hadn’t gone out and picked it up my
self. The Superintendent doesn’t like
ragged, barefooted boys. He draws the
the lines just beyond shoes and stockings.
But these boys have souls, Mr. Denike,
and they’ll certainly go to ruin unless
they are taught, not only for an hour on
Sundays, but six days iu the week. If
the responsibility is not mine does it rest
with the church, or on the Soheol Board,
or on the Legislature, Mr. Denike? Af
ter all, arn’t you somewhat responsible
By this time she had stopped iu front
of a house, and was resting her hand on
the railing of the stoop.
‘This is your home?’ he said inquiring
ly, without having answered her last
‘Yes/ she replied, ‘I live here with my
‘And may I not call to see you some
Miss Pennyfeather hesitated—he was
certainly a very recent acquaintance, but
he promised to bo a pleasant one. To be
sure he was interested in another girl, but
that need make no difference, except as
it might define more clearly their own
relations. Miss Pennyfeather began to
feel quite a friendly interest in the pretty
face which Mr. Denike carried in his
pocket. So she only said with a half
smile, in almost the same words she had
‘Why, yes, if you waut to.’
‘Let me answer your question/ he said,
‘before I go. Of course I share the re
sponsibility with every one else who legis
lates for the people. But the problem is
a difficult one. Maybe you have some
proposition,’ as he noted her more eager
The girl gave a little low laugh,
perhaps half ashamed of her excite
‘Yes, I have, Mr. Denike/ she said,
‘indeed, it’s my hobby. Whenever I get
hold of people who have influence, I bore
them with it until their lives become a
burden. My notion is to start here in
Chepachet an industrial school, under the
school board, where vagrant children can
be brought in and taught some useful
trade. Its my highest ambition, Mr.
Denike, to have charge of a school like
Her eye kindled and her face glowed
with the words. John Denike, as he
looked at her, forgot for a moment the
face in his pooket-book, and thought he
had never seen a muoh prettier picture.
‘lndeed, Miss Pennyfeather/ he said,
as though protesting against her sugges
tions that he was bored, ‘l’m very much
interested. And I’d like to talk the
matter over with you, Perhaps I can do
something in the way of legislation. May
I come soon and continue the conversa
Miss Pennyfeather nodded ‘yes/ and
bade him good-by. Then the door open
ed and shut, and Denike was left alone.
But the thought of Miss Pennyfeather’a
bright expression and the echo of her
fresh ringing voice lingered with him all
the way home.
Three months after’ that, the School
Board of Chepachet found itself in a
great quandary. It was seriously pro
posed—indeed it had become a law —that
in Chepachet, education should become
compulsory. More than this, for the va
grant classes and for children of poor
parents, an industrial school was to be
provided. The question that concerned
the board was not so much who had en
gineered the innovation, as whom they
should appoint as principal.
‘Properly/ said old Mr. Gallup, who
was the senior member of the board and
very slow of speech, ‘the place belongs to
‘But, Miss Fairfield is very high

Bushnell, who was himself verging on
‘Well after all/ declared elder Knox, ‘it
amounts to about this. Denike has more
interest in this than anybody else. He
wants Miss Pennyfeather, aud she ought
to be appointed.’
And that settled it.
It all her life, Maud Pennyfeather had
never passed a happier time than those
three months. Never, indeed, had months
passed so quickly. In her relations with
Mr. Denike the industrial sohool had,
from the very first, been a topic of ab
sorbing interest. The legislation affect
ing it was drawn in Miss Pennyfeathcr's
neat little parlor, and all the details were
arranged from evening to evening be
tween the two conspirators. Having a
secret ef this profound and important
character, their friendship became peouj
liarly intimate and informal. Had it not
been for the picture in Mr. Denike’B
pocket-book, Maud might have imagined
there was some purpose in his attention,
but of oourse the fact of the
picture left no reason to infer anything
of the kind. And strange to say, while
she fancied she was glad of this, she
more than once found herself entertaining
a feeling of positive resentment against
the pretty original, and a vindictive de
sire to abstract the picture and tear it up.
It is only fair though to say that Maud,
when she recognized these improper sen
timents, would blush with shame and vex
ation, and crowd them down in her heart.
It used to annoy the girl; indeed, she
could hardly aooount foi it, that wh :n
she first knew Mr. Denike she was unem
barrassed in his presence, but that now
when she went down to meet him it would
be with a flush upon her cheek and a
tremor in her voice. Try as she might,
she could not gain the oomposure of their
earlier acquaintance. She hoped it es
caped his attention. Perhaps it did.
That she was being urged for the position
of principal of the new enterprise, she was
The evening of the committee’s
decision, Denike found her in the par
‘You remember you told me once,’ he
said, when both were seated, ‘that it was
your highest ambition to have charge of
such a school as ours.’
Maud nodded and looked at him, with
a question in the look,
‘The opportunity has fallen to me/ he
went on, gravely, of gratifying your arnbi
The color went all away at once from
her face. She did not say a word.
‘The school board, Miss Ptnuyfeather,

velope, ‘contaius the official announce
The girl took it mechanically, holding it
unopened in her hand.
‘I have great pleasure iu congratulating
you/ he continued. ‘To attain one’s am
bition, Miss Pennyfeather, ought to be an
occasion for congratulation—ought it
She looked up at his question—then
dropped her eyes nerviously. ‘Thank
you/ she said. It was all she could
This, then was the end of it all. To
be sure, it was the end Maud had wished.
Three months ago she had no dearer de
sire. Had anything taken its place?
Was Maud deceived about herself after
all, and did she have au ambition still
dearer than that?
And so Maud woke up—to find the
thing that had seemed best her now
within her reach, but stale and unprofita
ble; the thing for which she hadn’t cared
out of her reach, but of things in the world
the most to be deshed. And yet she
could not complain. Mr. Denike had
only taken her at her word, and interested
himself in a friendly way, to help her
realize her aspirations. Now he would
go off and marry the girl in the picture,
whom, by this time, Maud absolutely
hated; and she would be left to teach an
industrial school to the end of her days.
But she would never let Mr. Denike know
how it pained her—never. So she forced
back tho tears, and studied, aud said in a
low, quiet tone:
‘Thank you very much, Mr. Denike;
you’ve been very kind to me.
His own voice seemed to tremble a little
as he spoke.
‘But I’m going to offer you an alterna
tive/ he said.
Maud looked up. Sho was quite indif
ferent now as to what he might say.
‘I want to know,’ he continued, ‘if that
is still your highest ambition —or if, as
people sometimes do you have changed
Maui gazed at him with open eyes,
quite uncertain as to what he meant.
Was he going to offer her some other posi

her reply; ‘indeed, it strikes me as rath

strongly you've set your heart on this
thing, but I must take my chance. I
want to ask you, Miss Maud, before you
conclude to settle down in life as a teach
er, if you wont consider the idea of be
coming my wife.’
Mr. Denike did not get any further
than that. If he intended to, ho was
summarily cut short. For Maud, mak
ing a vain effort to control herself, at
length gave way, and leaning back against
the sofa, cried as though her heart would
break. Happily Mrs. Pennyfeather was

But Maud did not speak, and ho was
oontent to take her silenoe for an answer.
After a while, when she had gained her
composure in a tolerable degree, a thought
came to her, that sent the blood all out of
her cheeks. How could she have for

looked up into his face with a frightened

And so that cloud drifted away. And

happy. Somehow or other the boy

All About a Brick.
A well-known citizen living not
many blocks from Union Squaro re
lates an incident somewhat in this
One bright morning in the month
of November, some years ago, I was
preparing to go down town, when
the servant informed me that a man
was waiting at the front door to see
me. ‘Tell him I’ll be down in a mo
ment,’ said I. On going to the door
a man of tall stature and robust up
pearanoe, calling me by name, re
quested assistance, saying that he had
a large family, a wife in delicate
health, and no means to procure food
‘You appear to be strong and
healthy, why don’t you work?’ asked
‘Simply, sir, for the reason that I
cannot procure work.’
Not having any work to give him
I thought I would test the sincerity
of his intentions.
‘lf I give you work, what pay do
‘Anything, sir, you choose to give
me, so long as I can obtain means for
my suffering family.'
‘Very well, sir/ said I, ‘I will give
you twenty-five cents an hour if you
will carry a brick on your arm around
the block for five hours without stop
you, sir; I will do it.’
After hunting awhile I found a
brick, placed it on the man’s arm,
started him on his walk, and then
went down town to my business.
Not having the least faith in the
man’s promise, I thought but little
more of it, yet as I knew I should be
back within the five hours I deter
mined to see if he performed his work.
My business kept me away rather
later than I expected, so I had to
forego my usual walk home, and took
a Fourth avenue car to be back with
in the five hours.
As I approached the corner of the
street where I reside 1 found a great
crowd of persons gathered—two fire
engines, a hose cart and a hook and
ladder truck. Upon inquiring where
the tire was I was informed that it
was a false alarm, and that what
brought the people together and oc
casioned tho agitation was the spec
tacle of a tall man carrying a brick
on his arm around the block for nearly
five hours. The neighbors were look
ing at him from the windows and
doors as he passed along; some
thought he was crazy, but when spo
ken to his answer was: ‘Don't stop
me; it's all right’ As he interfered
with no one, he was allowed to walk
‘Where is now?’ I asked.
‘There, you can see him at the oth
er end of the block, walking with his
head down,’ was the answer.
He was just about turning the cor
ner, and I waited till he had perform
ed the circuit, then, taking him quiet
ly by tho arm, 1 marched him to my
house, followed by a lot of boys. In
tho meantime, the firomen, engines
and hose cart rattled off. The man
was thoroughly tired out when I took
him into my hail and seated him on a
chair, while my servant went for a
little wine and something to eat. I
paid him forthwith a dollar and a
aalf. He informed mo that, while
making one of his turns, a lady came
out of a house and inquired why he
was carrying that brick, and on his
giving her the reason he received a
dollar. The object soon became
knowD, for, as he passed the houses,
small Bums were given him by differ
ent persons, and he was well satisfied
with his day’s work.
‘But,’ said ho, ‘what shall I do to
‘Why,’ I replied, ‘go early in the
morning to tho houses from which
you received tho money, and ask for
work, and no doubt you will find
some one who will put you in the way
of getting it; then report tome.' The
following afternoon ho informed me
that ho had been sent to a german,
who kept a pork establishment in
Third avenue, and who wanted a clerk
to keep his books. He was to get five
dollars a week if his work proved
satisfactory, and his dutios bogan on
the following day. Before leaving
me he asked for the brick which had
brought him such good luck, and I
gave it to him. Within tho year I
ascertained that the man had been
transferred to a larger establishment
of the same kind, with a salary of
Three or four years after this, I
was riding in a street car, when a well
dressed man accosted me, with a
smile, and asked mo if I knew him.
Seeing me hesitate, he said:
‘Don't you recollect tho man who
carried the brick?'
He then informed me that he was
doing a prosperous .business on his
own account, had laid up money, and
expected soon to build himself a

pied a place on our mantlepiece, and
we value it as the most precious of
our little possessions. It has made
our fortune.’—JV. Y. Evening Post.

“Some other States are, in my opinion,
falling into the Very foolish and wicked
plan of emitting paper money. 1 cannot

just and liberal system of policy.”
JOHN ADAMS; 1786.
“I cannot but lament from my inmost
soul that lust for paper money which ap

There will never he any uniform rule if
there is any sense of justioe, nor any clear
