And with a merry laugh at poor Susio's expen"e, the party descended to the drawing room. A year later, as, they had promised, the same group were again assembled in tho library. Let us look in on them. Time has wrought some change in their personal appearance, but a greater change in their hearts. They are not as light hearted; their laugh rings less joyously; but there is slill much happiness in tht-ir countenances. After dialling awhile, their grandpa said. 'Well, girls, vou all know whet we come here for; pray proceed, for I am impatient to hear you. Begin, Julia. 'My wish has been granted,' said she.'

'It has never, said Julia, 'brought me one hour's happiness. It has gratified my ambition, indeed. But there u a void in my heart which their praises do not fill. 'Come, Susie,' said she, nnd with a light lniiffh she endeavored to throw olf tho rrloom which had settled upon her brow, 'let us have your experience, inougli we all know your wish has been granted,' 'It has, indeed,' said Susie, who hai bore the name of Wharton for a number of months.' This has been a hnppy year to me. and' I have learned muuh.

Her eyes gleamed with an un natural lustre, and her skin which was of dazzling whiteness, was heightened by tho hectic spot, which burned on cither check; A few short weeks, days, or even hours, and her place would be vacant. A pang shot through the hearts of tho group, as they gazed upon her, and the tears coursed down their checks in silence. 'Why should you weep . f.ir me, dear cousins?' said Alice. '1 am going homo to my heavenly Father, no more to suffer or to sin. My wish has been granted me, and 1 can now, with sincerity say, Thv will, not mine be done.' But it has. caus ed me many a heart-struggle, to reconcile myself.

The Personul Appearance of our Saviour.

It is a true one, the engineer should be given: It was about half past nine o'clock in the morning, the deuse fog through which we ad been running for the last four or five lours, had rendered tho track so slippery that we had lost considerable time in climb ing the up grades; but we were running own a moderate grade, and as the fog was gradually clearing away, we had ven tured to increase our speed; and our en gineer, ever attentive to his business, was constantly watching the track uhead, which was occasionally enveloped in. thick clouds t watery vapor. A we were running a- long, 1 observed the engineer raise Lis land to the cord attached to the whistle. He held it for a moment and then gave the nal to 'brake. lurnmgmv eyes in the direction that we were moving,! wasbarely able to discern some smull object on the track a considerable distance ahead, but could not make out what it wn. A mo ment later tho engineer repeated tho sig nal to 'brake in that peculiarly startling manner which was instantly recognized by the experienced brakesman as indicating imminent danger. The engine was revers- d as if by liingie, and as tho steam was applied, the driving wheels whirled round in the opposite direction to that which the train was moving. 1 now discovered that tho object before us was a littlo child, ap parently, unaware of its dange-r. I he al most constant screaming of the whistle with which the engineer sought to fright en it from the track seemed only to amuse it. i. he wheels of onr engine grated and hissed upon the iron track, unable to stop the train, which, owing to the slippery condition of the rails, it was certain would send us far bevond Tvhero the child was standing before we could stop. Thus we rushed with the. almost certainty that in the next minute that innocent, unsuspect ing child, too young to know its danger, would be a mangled corpse. Turning my eyes to seo if there was no one near to save it, 1 saw a lady who seemed to bo almost flying toward the child, but one glance showed me that the engine would reach it beforo her. The engineer had left his post nnd was now running rapidly along the frame to the front of the engine. In cn in stant he was crouching upon the 'cow catcher with one foot upon tho lower bar, nnd . ins leu nana homing to tiio irame work, nnd his right extended toward the child which, at the very moment it would have boeh crushed he caught it by its little arm, raised it from the track, and bore it along in safety. One moro minute, and tho child, uninjured, was restored to its mother s arms. Brakemak. Ilovr to 3Inkc Modern LacEy '.', '" Marry. : "Just as tho twig Is bent, the iron's Inclined."
