Though her nobis features teem
The embodiment of rest.
Like the saints of whom we dream
, In the heaven of the bleat,
1 Yet ahe'a weary I Many day
Ha she marched with life' (r&y throng)
k Those aha loved have dropped away
Why moot the Uv on so long
t Wearied of nnrighted wrongs;
Frightened by the world's dark frown:
Life's last art is done; she longs
For tav curtain to go down.
Blnwly with each peaceful breath
Days and years crept toward their sua
' Tet she never asks for death ;
When Ood wills it, let it come.
Dearest, are yon near the end!
Are your loved ones dying fast?
Have yon not one little friend
Who will love yon to the last?
Oh. when life's great eddying whirl
Leaves me stranded somewhere, too
II jy I have some little girl
To lovo me as I love you!
-Robert Bjverly Bale in Youth's Companion
Dave vra3 a coward, and he had al
ways borne the reputation of arrant
cowardice ever since he had crawled
over the side of his dnROut cradle to
wallow along with tho underfoot world
on the white Baud before his parents'
cabin door. Though Country born and
bred, a passing thunderstorm struck
him with terror, and the sight of the
black waters of the "crick" caused a
remarkable agitation of his knees. He
was a coward pure and simple. The
bristling of a coon routed hiin uncondi
tionally, and a determined possum could
rob the henroost before his very face.
Indeed, Dave was a coward, and his
cousin, Suo Spivey, laughed uproarious
ly when the poor fellow perpetrated his
initial and only act of boasting. He
had said to her one day very solemnly
and no doubt sincerely :
"Toe purtec yo' honah an happiness
I 'ud th'ow away my wttthless life. "
Ordinarily Dave's speech was unpol
ished and provincial, but on this occa
sion it rose to the dignity of what he
felt the occasion demanded.
Sue knew full well his timorous dis
position and would have thought it safe
to count on his poltroonery in any
event. But a day was sadly near which
proved to her the full worth of the poor
fellow's grandiloquent assertion.
Long before the late unpleasantness
and until this day Houeypath was only
a siding, where occasional trains took
water and passed each other. Two or
three log shanties, without special pre
tensions to any architectural dissimi
larity, marked the site of the town, dis
tinguishing it from the vast area of im
penetrable swamp that backed it and
the arid waste of sandy bottom through
which the glistening, polished rails of
the grand trunk line writhed and sinu
ated. Along that glowing metal high
way troops of both armies passed and
repassed, gazed at curiously by the few
old women and senile males left in the
village, but exciting no other emotion
than a blank curiosity that died out
even before the white mist of the fine
sand stirred by the soldiers' feet had
settled behind the retreating bands.
Dave was a native of Houeypath and
lived with an aged father in 0110 of the
shanties. Sue dwelt with her mother in
another near by. Dave's father was a
hot blooded southerner, whose patriot
ism answered to the first call to arms,
but Dave was timid, fearful of the smell
of powder and refrained from action,
preferring to suffer the opprobrious epi
thets which were liberally bestowed up
on him and the contempt of tho county
generally to facing he knew not what
horror upon the battlefield. He was not
a philosopher and could not plead in ex
tenuation of his neutrality that the
martial slaughter of his brother man
was a crime and that the wholesale sac
rifice of human life was immoral.
Dave was simply a coward and accept
ed meekly the obloquy which the con
dition imposed, not even the taunts and
cutting sarcasm of pretty Sue Spivey
being able to rouse the instincts of bat
tle in his craven soul.
Before the strife ended Sue's mother
was gathered to her final rest, being
put out of Bight in tho little sandy
graveyard, with only the comment of
the two remaining neighbors. And then
Dave and Sue toiled early and late in
order to wring from the starving acres
an unvaried livelihood of yams, corn
bread and bacon, more often the corn
bread without the embellishment of po
tatoes and bacon, particularly during
the weeks after a hungry ioraging party
bad passed that way.
One day Dave was working among
the young potato vines in an open arid
field behind the cabin, when .Sue ran
out to him in troubled haste.
"Oh, Dave, I'm pow'ful skeeredl"
she panted.
"Skeered o' what?" he asked, 'with
out intermission of the bent labor.
"Some some soldiers jnst went down
the road, an they spoke o me sassy
like." She hesitated, and Dave looked
up to see her pretty face scarlet .and her
brows bent together in angry lines.
"Well, what did they all say?" he
demanded in his accustomed slow drawl
lifter waiting in vain for her to proceed.
"They 'lowed they all was a-comin
" Who was they ennyhow?" he asked
uneasily, his face blanching in antici
pation of the martial visit
"They was Mosby's men, I 'lowed,
an they was five of 'cm. "
"Our fellers?" a little surprised and
straightening his back. "Come on back
to the house, Sue," and, shouldering
his hoe, he trudged stolidly on befora
"Don't you be skeered," he continued
as they reached the yard. "I reckon
they won't do nothin. "
Of the two it would have been mani
fest to the most casual observer that he
was the worst "skeered," but he walk
ed on till they reached the house, and
Sue cried out:
"Yonder they come now all five. "
Dave's face blanched to a sallow
whiteness, but he pulled her quickly in
side the door.
"What you gwine to do?" Sue asked
nervously, keeping near her cousin, but
he apparently did not hear. He hod
hand. This letter, loo, was addressed to
that low place. Friar's Court, Temple.
So, by tho time Dick hod been located
at Pleasant View seven days he was
quite on friendly nay, intimate
terms with his hostess and her daughter.
Every morning when he met tho latter
at the breakfast table, seizing an oppor
tunity of course when Mrs. Fielding
was not Dresent. he had asked. "Well'1"

and Ethel hod shaken her head" very de
l.rmiuedly and made the most of the
exceedingly dimpled chin, which only
represented one-third of Mr. Water
bury'a. During the whole of that week
Dick had never once been out The
kitchen commented severely ou this
point It savored more of the "man in
possession" than anything else he had
"He's been sent, and he's got to
stop," was cook's verdict "And mis
tress is making the best of a bad job by
treating him as a gentleman guest I've
always understood that the poor master
left her comf'able off, and I can't un
derstand how she's lost her money. I
suppose it's a mine or something.
Thank goodness! I've got all my little
savings wrapped up in a stocking and
locked in my box!"
Seven days had gone the seventh
night had come, and still Ethel remained
obdurate. But she paid, her mother
noticed, considerable attention to her
toilet and wore her prettiest dresses.
What was that?
Mrs. Fielding sat up, bathed in cold
What was there it was again
scratching on tho window? She listened
her heart beutimr a wild tattoo
against her ribs. Yes there again
somebody was trying to break in !
Only a sliding door separated Mrs.
Fielding's room from her daughter's.
Her teeth chattering in time with tho
wild throbbing of her pulses, Mrs.
Fielding crept out of bed and, the slid
ing door being partly open, into her
daughter's room. Ethel was slumbering
peacefully, but a touch awoke her.
mere was a Hurried explanation in
whispers from Mrs. Fielding, and then
the two women, clutching each other
for comfort stole into the outer bed
room and once moro listened. The
scratching had ceased, and only a shuf
fling sound could be heard. Then there
were footsteps on the gravel walk, and
then the scullery window (which was
immediately beneath) was shot up with
a force that denoted a careless haste on
the part of the midnight intruder.
"A burglar!" exclaimed Ethel, pale
to the hps, for she was only 19 and an
ordinary girl with ordinary nerves.
Unconsciously her lips formed the
word "Dick!"
"I'll wake Mr. Waterbury," said
Mrs. Fielding. She tripped swiftly out
of the room, down the passage, and
rapped at her guest's door.
In almost less time than it takes to
relate it Dick found himself standing at
his door, in dressing gown and trousers,
trying to instill some calmness into the
troubled breasts of Mrs. Fielding, her
daughter, the cook and the housemaid
for Mrs. Fielding had aroused the
servants, there being comfort in nunv
bers, even scared ones.
stop Here," said dick, "i ll go
down. If he doesu t uso arms I can
manage him!"
So saying, he moved quietly down
stairs, and the women, afraid to be left
by themselves, followed him at a re
spectful distanca A few moments and
the darkness had swallowed up Dick's
form. An anxious interval followed,
during which nothing could be heard,
Suddenly there were a crash of crock

too, for Dick yes, for Dick. She loved
him ; she knew it now. His life was in
The house was filled with sounds of
the struggle. A desperate fight was go
ing ou in the passage leading to the
kitchen. The women could dimly dis
ecru the forms of tho two men who,
breathing in short, quick gasps, were
struggling furiously for the mastery.
Backward and forward they swayed,
with clinched teeth and straining urns
cles. Still the women dared not move.
The couple had fought their way down
to the extreme end of the passage and
were close to the scullery door. Sudden
ly a pistol shot rang out, there was
cry, a splintering of wood and a crash
of glass, and the two vanished.
A few seconds later Dick returned,
his dressing gown half torn off his back.
"He got away, " he exclaimed. "But
he didn't tako anything. I'll get some
things on and be off to the police sta
The women gazed at their hero with
fond, admiring eyes. Once again they
breathed freely. Slowly they moved up
stairs all but Ethel.
"Are yon hurt?" she asked him, with
infinite tenderness m her voice.
"Only a bruise or two," he replied.
"I'll soon s'et the police on his track.
But first"
He took her hand in his.
"I said I would not leave the house,'
he began.
Ethel looked swiftly up the stairs to
make sure they two were unobserved.
Then she bent forward, quickly breathed
"Yes" in his ear and fled to her room.
The police never caught the burglar,
who got back to Friar's Court quite
safely, after catching the earliest train
from a roadside station six miles from
Market Norbury.
Ethel quite meant her "Yes," and in
due time was married to the "man in
possession," much to the cook and
housemaid's wonderment
And Mr. John Blunt, reading the
wedding announcement, chuckled soft
ly to himself.
"It was a good idea of Dick's!" was
all he said. Tit-Bits.

Nile valley with the Arabian caravans, and
