Loud screams in the voo-sheil
frightened every Lody in the hou-e;
niifl Mrs. Drew ran to see what was the
matter. She opened the door, and
theie stood her son Kdgar hy the work
hench, looking proud and fierce, with
Iiis ii-t doubled up; and there sat his
little cousin Walter on the lloor, his
ey cm shut tiht und his mouth wide
open, screaming as loud as he could
"Children! what Is the matter?"
cried good Mrs. Drew, hastening to
sec if Walter had had a linger cut off,
or an ey put out, or a leg broken, for
she was always afraid some such ac
cident would happen to those boys.
"He struck me!" screamed Wal
ter. I
'lie shan't have my plaything!"
said Kdgar, shaking his head, anil
looking prouder and fiercer tht:n ever;
and with his foot he began to push
them under the work bench. There
wns nn ex press-wagon with four
wheels, and a cart with two wheels,
and a wheelbarrow with one wheel, a
bow and arrow, a Ikix of blocks to
make houses of, an India-rubber dog
that would b:irk nud a cat that would
mew, when you squeeze them, a jump
ing Jack, ami I don't know how many
more things. Kdgar had had most of
the toys a good while, and had played
with them till they no longer interest
ed him, and they had long lain in his
tool-chest at the end of the work
bench, neglected and forgotten, and of
no ue to any body. When his little
cousin Walter came to live with him
his mother said, "There are those old
play things of KdgarV; they are just
what we want for Walter."
Walter was of course delighted with
them. Hut Kdgar, as soon as he found
out that same body else wanted hb
playtings, thought that he wantetl
them, and was unwilling to share
them with Walter. If his cousin
wished to take the express-wagon,
Kdgar said he was Just going to take it,
and Walter shouldn't have it; then
if Walter gave that up, ami choso the
carte, Kdgar declared he must have
the cart ho was just going to draw
chips in it. And so they quarreled, in
spite of all Mrs;. Drew could say to
make her son ashamed of his selfish
ness. Hut to-day she thought the time had
come to put an end to these disputes
aU:ut the playthings. So she stopped
and put one hand kindly on the w ceil
ing Walter's head, and took Kdgar's
unwilling hand in the other.
"There, Walter, don't cry; you shall
have the playthings, for I said you
might. Kdgar, h w con you treat
your little cousin so? Kcmember, you
are a great bo v. almost eleven vears '
old, and he is only five!"
"I don't care! I ain't going to have
him coming into this house and get- j
ting all my things away from nn !'
"Have vou forgotten" what you told
mo whenhis noor mother died? Said !
I, 'Kdgar, your little cousin hasn't nny
mother now, and he won't have any
home, unless we let him come here;
how would you like to have him for
little brother?' You say you would
love him."
Yes!" muttered Kdgar. "I thought !
we'd play horse, and he'd let me drive;
but lie wants to drive half the time!
The idea of A. driving wf I ain't
going to stand any of that nonsense,
now, come!"
Iook heir. Kileir iln von know ,
you are talking to your mother?" aid
Mrs. Drew.
"I can't help that! You always
take his part against me. I've stood
it long enough. I shan't staud it any
Mrs. D.ew looked at her loy in as
tonishment. Aftcra moment's pause,
she said, cnlmy, "What will you do
about it?"
"I'll have Walter go away. If he
stays Iu this house won't!"

"Well, I'll go, then!" said IMgar,
snatching his hand away, nnd walk-
ing. fierce and straight, up to his lit-
tie bed-room, to pack Iiis things.
Mrs. Drew did not believe he would
have the courage to go, or perhaps she
would not have said what she did; but j J'ltlIt' u a,U r ,U)W Ju1 ''ginning

"Oh, I haven't any thing Walter ! rich man, and put up at the hotel, and

envious IMgar, bitterly.
Mrs. Drew paid no attention to this '
remark, which was intended to be
very stinging, but quietly undid the
"What! nothing but a shirt and a
night shirt, a pair of stockings and a
handkerchief? Why, my child, it

"These are enough," said Kdgar,
stilling his remorse and grief. You'll
be glad to give the rest to Walter."
"Hut you will have to go to work, if
you leave home, and you will want
some every-day clothes."
The boy had not thought of that;
and the prospect of living out some
where iu the service of strangerj was
not very encouraging.
"I can't carry a big bundle?" he
"Well, then, we will Fend you what
clothes you want, if you will write to
us, after you have found a place," said
his mother, tying up the bun lie ngain.
"I shall go to sea. nnd you will
never hear from me ngain!" said Kd-
gar, fiercely. He thought that would j
bring her to terms, but she airpcared
quite unmoved.
"Have you money enough for your
"I have three dollars and a half."
"Where did you get so much?"
"It it it's some you gave me!" Kd-
gar faltered. Then, finding he was
beginning to soften, he added, vindie-
itivcly, "I can leave it for Walter, if
you want me to!"
"No, ray child; you w ill want more
thin that; nnd you know I have never
taken any tiling from you that you
needed, to give it to Walter. It io't

because I don't love you, and wouldn't
do every tiling In the world for you,
that I insist on you being kind to your ,
little cousin. After you hae been
away from home aw bile, living among
strangers, who will not be to you what
your fathtr and mother and sisters
have been then you will wish you
had be; n more kind to that poor little
homeless, motherless loy.
Mrs. Drew wiped away a tear as she
nut back tho Uiy's purse. How he
longed then to throw his arms about
her neck, ns ho asked her forgiveness,
and promise never to be unkind to
Walter again! Dut he was too proud ; part. I was mean and selfish. I wish
for that, nnd he was angry Ueause I was back there. Father's got Imuiv

she seemed so willing to part with :
"What shall I sav to your father and
sister when thev come home, and ask
for Kdgar?" j
"Any thing you like, I suppose
you'll make out as bad a story as you
can alxmt me!" j
"() IMgar!" said his mother, re- sUte-s had come homo, and his moth
proaehlully. Then, show ing the ska-; er had anxiously told them what had

"Xo, IM rather go now!" And
away liestn.de with a tragical nir, so
' fuH f sorrow and anger and remote
j that he could not say another word,

road. One fell on Kdgar's hand and
another on Ins cheek. 1 lie earth had

never felt such cold, omnious rain

was out of sight.
The rain set in, slow and chill, not
not go to see her; and I'll drive a fat
horse past the house, and make all
myoid friends presents, and boo-hou-
hoo!" wept the wretched, angry boy,
unable to support his heart with these
spiteful fancies.
Patter, patter went the rain, darker
and darker grew the way; and now
the serious question forced itstlf upon
his mind, where" was he to pass the
nigh I? Why not go to the hotel now?
Decauso everyliody knew him in the
village, and it would lock so strange
for him to go there for lodging, so
near home. "I'll go where nobody
knows me; I'll crawl Into a barn some
where, and sleep on the hay."
lights began to appear in tho farm
houses he passed, theircheerful beams
making the rain aud darkness seem
all the more dismal to his lonely heart.
In one warmly lighted doorway a
woman appeared and called, "Come,
my son, come to supper." "All right,
mother," answered a cheery boy's
voice from the door of a barn close by;
"Ivo got the chores all done now."
And Kdgar saw a hid about his own
age go into the house with a brimming
pail of mlik-go into light and warmth
and supper, and the comfort of a
mother's presence, while he, houseless,
motherless, drenched, wandered on iu
the darkness and rain.
"I'll go into the next barn I come
to," thought he. And there was one
near by; but just as he was gliding
stealthily to the door, a man came out,

, "What do you want hett? Clear out,

Kdgar was liightcno 1, and ran away
ns fi.-t as be could. He walked ab.ut
'half a mile turtehr, then sat down 011
h sti.ne wall by the side f the road.
Not a person w as pacing, not a light
was to bo seen anywhere. Night had
now fairl closed in, ami it w as rain
ing still. And there IMgar thought
of the past and of his dismal pros
pects. "I wish Walter had never come to
our house! Making a row 'twixt me

be before. I didn't uc him very well,

Edgar, jumping from the wall, which
tumbled down after him, walk-
ed on again blindly and miserably,
In the meanwhile his father and

the rain."
The family sat down to supper; but
a sad Mip u r it was. All were anxious
aiMitit Kdgar, nud as the rain beat
against the windows, they could not
help wondering if he was out in it.
After supper Mr. Drew said, "I le
lieve I will go out nhd see if I can
track him." So he lighted a lantern,
and took an umbrella, and went oil'
iu pursuit of the fugitive.
In an hour he came back witout
"Couldn't you find him?" cried
the dispairing mother.
"What! hasn't he come homo yet?
I expected to Und him here before me.
It's nn awful night!"
It was now getting very late. Mrs.
Drew did not dare say what he felt;
she could not stay in the presence of
the family; but she went up the stairs
to her boy's little bedroom, ami enter
ing where all was dark, threw herself
upon her knees by his bed, and began
to pray, iu a voice convulsed with
anguish, for the welfare and safe return
of her dear lost child.
"Mother!" sobbed out a well-known
voice by her side.
"Kdgar, you here!" she cried.
"Yes, mother!" said the penitent,
under the bed-clothes.
In her joy, she threw her arms about
him, and it was a minute before she
could control her feelings siiHicicntly
to ask "How came you here? I low
did you get in?"
"I was ashamed to have you see me,
nnd I climbed up the apple-tree on to
the piazza, and got in at the window,
about half an hour ago. And, ()
mother, I have been so unhappy and
I know I've reen a bad boy I know
I don't deserve it, but if you will for
give me"
Forgive him! Why, tho happy
mother had never loved him so in all
her life. She went and told his father
and sisters, and brought him up a plate
of toast she had kept warm for him,
and stood by w hile he ate it, sitting up
in bed.

A bill pissed both Houses of Con

served ninety days in tho Jate war,
the irivelcge of entering a quarter
section of land without cost. Another
bill has been agrcee to by the Military
Committee, and has passed the Sen
ate, giving a bounty of eight and one
third dollars per mouth for every
month of actual service, after deduct
ing all lounties heretofore received.
This will giveanother hundred dollars

The general pension bill which has
passed Congress makes an important
change In the mar.ner of paying pen
sions. It provides for the payment
(jmnttrly in-dead of semi-annually,
viz., in September, December, March j
and June. It requires the
Agents to furnish vouc
pensioner, forbids p
claim agent, attorney, broker, or to ;
nny person except me pcnsmuoi; It
reduces the fees of the Agent to about
one-half the present charge, and the
fees hereafter are to bo paid by the
(I'ovcrnmcnt and not by the pension
ers. The bill will greatly increase the
work and responsibility at the Agen
cies, but it I-, in many respects, an
improvement over the present system,
especially in forbidding tho Agents,
under heavy penalties, from rccogniz-
ing any "claim agents," "attorneys,"
or "brokers," in the payment of the j
soldier's due. The money ii go to j
the pensioner and no one eNe. Claim
ngeiit.s who are accustomed to advance
money to pensioners, expecting to
collect the pension with large interest,
will'do well to govern them-elves uc
