I never think of the geography of Boston without being reminded ot a vu lao to which I was once directed by a planter whom I met by the roml-aide in the bnekwoods of Georgia. "Uo atret on," he said, "till ye come to a tthingled house, a blacksmith-simp, and a tobacco- barn. Mtandin' right rouud a puddle of water thet's the village." Boston, to be sure, is something more than ashinglcd house, a blacksmith-shop, und a tobacco barn ; it is, in fui't, a town several times larger than the Georgia village; but, for all that, it stands "right round" a pud dle I beg pardon, a pool of water. This pool is known In history as tlie Frog Vond, and it probably derived iU name from a family of frogs who once had there a summer residence : but why it retains Unit appellation is difticult to conjecture, since all the Boston croukers now spend their sunlmers at Newport or Nahant, and their winteinin much drier, if not more wholesome quarters. But a pool of wit htisalready been shed on this pool of water, and it is not my intention to swell a small pond into an oceun. Abler nens than mine have tried to do that. Ho I hnll content myself witli emptying my ink-stand upon alittle old woman who, in ruin and shine, week in and week out, for liiiiny a long year, kept an apple-stand near the margin of that famous puddle of water.. Hlie was little, and she was old, and I do think about as ugly as any woman who has lived since the birth of Eve thutflrst of apple-womeu ; butsheloved, und served her country, and so, in ppite of her ugliness, I feel bound to give her "half a dozen pages of general history." At first she served it by vending green apples and striped sticks of stomach ache to tlie hungry lawyers and rugged urchins who congregate about Court Hquure; and ut this time was aole mis tress of a peripatetic shop a htrgo wil low basket, going about on two legs and open at tlie top.excr ptin rainy weather, when it was roofed by a big cotton umbrella. . Khe was a meagre anatomV, with a sharp nose, a sunken chin, and a hatchet face, covered all over by a shriveled skin of the precise complexion of a peeled po tato. In winter she wore a faded hood, a blanket shawl, aud a woolen go"wn short enough to show a pair of corruga ted stockings, far whiter than the snow in the streets of Boston. In summer she was clad in a dimity cap, a calico frock, and a cotton bandana, , pinned closely over her bosom ; but, summer and win ter, she was always elongated by a pair of stout brogans, with high heels and thick soles thick enough, one would say, to be impervious to all the moisture that human feet are heir to. But they were not Impervionstothe rheumatism. That, one day, got into tlie legs of the old wo man's apple-basket, and forced Iter-to shut up her peripatetic shop, and to open one of a les9 roving character. Then she pitched her tent upon the Common-T-or, more literally, she planted there a three-legged stool, the big umbrel la, and a rough pine table, heaped high with russets, pippins, and gillyflowers, which sho was ready to disjense to all comers, rtt the rate of one cent for one, and half a dime for half 11 dozen so several paper placards, flouting, like lings of truce, from as many golden pippins, told all and singular who frcquentoti tlie Common,. Business here throve with the old wo man j for, in pleasant weuther, the Com mon is a great resort for young couples, who. bill and coo , under the spreading elms, or on tlie iron-clad benches ; and billing und cooing-is a decided sharpener of the appetite, us is proved by tlie la mentahle case of the young maiden who died of love und green tipples. There is no telling the quantity of stomiich-ache and eliolera-moi bus that the old woman daily dispensed to hungry lovers j but it irttiht have been Iitrgcince It was often noticed that however high her table was heaped in the morning it was alwavs low down ut night, when, with her basket on her arm, she umbled homeward. One evening a gentleman passing that way just at dark found the table almost untouched and the old woman in a great deal of trouble. It had rained all day, and few lovers had come upon the Com mon ; bo, with apples and clothes weep ing in sympathy with her sorrow, slieHat there, with 110 one to help her home with her basket. . . . It is said that evil loves the dark ; hut it Is quite us true that many good tilings avoid the davlight. Others' eyes are then open, and the fear of what "men muy say" often sends us sneaking by on the other side, like the Triest and tho Levite, in the parable. But now it wus durk; so tho gentleman shouldered tlie apple-basket and went home with the old woman. She lived in a small room, on the top-floor of an old, rickety house at the North End ; and as he went up the stairs, the gentleman was In mortal fearof their tumbling down, and spilling both him and the apples. At last, how ever, he reached the room, and setting down the basket, sat himself down to rest his tired legs and shoulders. It was a narrow, mean apartment, and so low that, When he stood upright, hut head almost hit the ceiling.

Curious to get at the secret of their hap piness, the stranger asked the old wo man about her history. Twenty years before, she said, her two sons and her husband had died, leaving her destitute and alone with one remain ing child a little daughter. Too weak to work and unwilling to beg she then resorted toatreet vending, and, by twelve hours of daily toil, managed to support herself and bring up her daughter. At twenty the latter married a worthless fellow, who broke her heart, and then cast her penniless upon the world with a young son, the little boy who was then setting the table.' The old woman took them in , an d about this ti me also adopted the little girl, who was the orphan child of a poor neighbor. , . "And were you able to support them all by vending apples 7" asked thegentle man. "No, Sir," she answered. "I triea to: hut I couldn't. My darter was sick, ana couldn't do nothing, and we soon got into debt, twenty dollars. Then, as if to make bad worse, I was took down with the rheufnatics. I was down with them for a fortnight; and when I got up, could n't get round like I could afore ; so, not knowin' what to do, I went with my basket onto a bench nigh the Frog Pond. Folks come to me amaziu' that day, and at night I had two dollars clear profit. Then I saw the Lord's hand ; he know'd I couldn't make a living going round, so he gave me the rheumatics, to show me it was best to open a stand on the Com mon." "And since then have you made both ends meet?" "Yes, Kir; since then I've been pros pered wonderful. I've paid oft" the debt and now when I want to I can lay in a stock of ten dollars, and that, you know, brings apples cheap." "But have you no fear for the winter?" "No, 8ir. it's two months oft"; lean make thirty dollars afore it comes, and that, with what sewing and washing I can do, will take us round to warm weather." "And how old are you?" asked the gentleman, looking at her furrowed face and white hairs, w hich seemed to say a century. ".Seventy next Christmas. But ye wouldn't think it to look at me. I feel a'most as peart as when I was thirty." ''And at your age, and in such pover ty, can you always look hopefully at the future?" "Yes, Sir. 'The I-ord is my shepherd, I shall not want, lie maketh me to lie down in green pastures. lie leadeth me beside the still waters.' " The stranger looked at her with won der. He had heard those words before, but now they had to him a new sound and a new meaning. Ail at once it dawned upon him that "the poor are blessed," because of their faith; which, of itself, Is the "Kingdom -of Heaven." Drawing a roll of bank-notes from his loeket, he handed one of them to the old woman. She took it, held it up curi ously to the candle, and then said, with a smile that made her ugly feutures ab solutely handsome; "It's more money than I ever saw at onceafore ; 'twouldtulteuscleanthrough the winter. Ye isagood gentleman, and I thank ye ; but we can get along, and while wo can I don't like to take money from nobody." Tliis she said in a gentle way, as if she feared to wound his feelings. He made no reply, but putting the note back in his pocket, rose and bade her "good evening." When he reufhed the door he turned, and saying,'! forgot the children," took both of them up in bis arms, and kissed them. Then he went down the long stairs, and walked slowly homeward.. He had gropedJo the dark for thirty years, and this ovomanhad given him his first living revelation. After that he kept his eye upon her. Every morning and evening he passed her stand on the Common, and he never went by without saying a cheerful word, or pausing to ask after her sick daughter and the .children. "The children is well, thank you, Sir. and Elir.ais as wellascould be expected," was her almost invariable answer.' But .one sultry day in August she said: "She seems to he sinking fast, Sir. Way up where we live we .don't get none but hot air, ami the sun dosVt come in lift into the afternoon. 'Pears tome we need sunshine as much as the plants and the flowers." . . ' The next day the gentleman went home earlier than usual, and as he came near the old woman's t4hnd he caught sight of the invalid duyghter, seated in ahand wagon, pronpeir up by a pillow, and sliuded halie big umbrella. Tlie atten tion of tlnTold woman was engrossed by a juvenile customer; but the daughter noticed his approach, and called to him as he made ait if he would go by without speuking. "Sir, Sir," she said, "please to stop, I want .youjto see! I shall soon be well; for now Fcou go out every day in fine weather!" , 1 . "Aud who got you down the stairs, and upon the Common?" , "The mail that lives on the lower floor he carried me down ; and Tommy drawed me here before school time." :. "And tcto.sent us the wagon ?" asked the old woman, her ugly fnoe lighting up wjth the smile that, to this man, air wuv made it handsome. - , "The Lord I suppose. All good things come from him; and this seems to be a good wagon," answered the gentleman, taking the vehicle by the wheel aud shaking it as if to test Its quality. , : The old woman looked at him for a moment, without a word. Then she said, "The Lord will say to them on hi right hand, 'Ye did it unto roe, insomuch as ye did it unto one of these, my poor children.'" Tlie man turned and walked away, in his eye a tear, and in his soul another revelation,, He had learned the ; whole of religion fuitb, and good works at the cost of carrying an old woman's basket, aud buying for her daughter a cheap Iiund-wagon. 1 Every pleasant day for a month after this he found the sick woman seated there in the wagon under the old um brella. She always had a entile for him, and he alwavs lingered a while to get that smile and a little of the old woman's sunshine. But one morning he went by, and found there neither the apple-stand nor the hand-wagon:- It was so too, when he strain went by at evening; and then;' without going home.'he made his wav to-the home of the told woman.-- Huff I v nncnlnf the door, be entered tne dingy apartment.

Whe was holding the hand of the voantr woman. who lay with her eyes upturned to, the fading sky, as if look 1 rut in elouds for some one coming. He had come, the Great Angel, and he had already taken ner to tne bosom or the Ail-Father. -For several years after this the old wo- man's life rippled along as smoothly as a gentle stream flowing on over a sandy bed to the great ocen. The old umbrel la trot many a natch, the new bonnet grew old, and the black silk goau that she first wore at her daughter's' funeral was turnen and re-turned to tit it to ap pear on Sundays; but nhe never hogged, and never borrowed, and the winter was never so hard but she had enough ready money at command to buy Jier'smaJl "by wholesale." ' ' Little by little the young lndsnnrthtin gry lovers who frequented the Common came to know her; and though many a rival apple-stand from time to time dis- fiuted her right to monopolize the trade, n stomach-ache they aoon had to eat their own candy, and to "fold their tents like the Arabs, and silently steal away." One day the gentleman who had learn ed of her his first lessons In Christianity, passing her stand, noticed Mime new flairs of truce floating from her pippin. "Who wrote these, Aunt -Betsey?" he asked, pausing to look at the placards. "Oh, Tommy' did them, Sir. He's amaziri' smart at such things. II etui write like any schoolmaster." "And how old is he now?" ' "Going on fifteen; and I'm thinking, Sir, it's ubout time he was doing some thing. I might support him some long er, but he's larned all he can lam out of college." "What does he take to?" 'Well, he wauts to be a merchant. I suppose lie get's a-hankerin' arter it from my bein' in the business; but there' a world of wickedness between buyin' and sellin'. Don't ye think he'd better be a lawyer?" . "A lawyer! There's not an honest lawyer living. Let him beft mecckant,. Send him down to my counting-room to morrow." Tommy went, and so became under clerk in a large commercial house on Central Wharf. When he drew his first month's pay he brought it home, and pouring it all into his grandmother's lap, threw his arms about her neck, und said: "Now, grandmother, you shall shut up shop. I won't have uo more of your sell ing apples." But the old woman was not eo easily lured from the "walks of commerce." She did not "Shut up shop." She still kept her stand on the Common ; but in summer she staid at home on rainy days, and in winter laid by, like the frogs, do ing neither washing nor sewing. . So three years went away, and then Fort Sumter fell, and President Lincoln called for seventy-five thousand volun teers to suppress the Rebellion. When Tommy yent home that night with the news his grandmother was thoughtful for a tint; then, looking in his face,-she said: "Tomaiw, the country has done ev erything foVfou ; hadn't 'you ought to do something for the country?" "You mean I ought to volunteer?" aid Trframy. : "YjaJ if Mr. Speeglo is willing." Mr. Speegle wus willtng; aud so, soon afterward, a qtieer scene was witnessed on the Common. The whole parade ground was in commotion. A regiment, which had been under review, was marching out of one of the gate-was's, andtheold woman. nerched on herthree- legged stool, was wildly waving her nm- 1 1 1 , . 1 . r . , !... ureiia, ami, at me ioi ui uer jungn, unerr ing tlie departing soldiers.. At her back sat a little maiden holding her head in her hands, and trying to hide her tears in her handkerchief. This was Rose-; and Tommy was going away with the regiment. He was the only stay of bis grand mother,-the only hope of her eighty years; but cheerfully, and at her own prompting, she had given him up to the country. "The country had done every thing for'him; he ought to do something ttr tltA nimifn " He was away several months, and then came back, re-enlisted, and went away again, leaving his bounty with his grand mother. After this he was often heard from, and always with honor; and the old woman seemed to grow young again, in recounting his daring . deeds to some patient, listener at her apple-stand. "Just to think," she would say, "that a poor woman like me ahould rear such a brave boy for the country !',' -, At last news came of. a great battle. Thousands, it was s tid, bad fallen on Doth sides; and every morning, with a beating heart, the ofd woman went to the mail for a letter from Tommy.i But no letter came, and a few days later she found his name among the list of those who, in the great struggle, had given up their lives for their country. She went home that night, and the next morning did not go as usual upon theCommon. Noticingherabsence, Mr. Speegle went to her humble home at nightfall. The curtains were down; but In the dim light he saw her stretched upon the bed, and Rose kneeling by her side weeping. He took her hand, but something in her face kept back the words he would have spoken. After moment she said: "Mr. Speegle, I'm glad you're come. . I owe you, and you owe me; but, I guess, the balance is in my fa vor. Pay it to Rosy.'-' "I will," said the man, his voice husky; She made no reply, tint lay for many minutes without speaking. Then, clutch ing the young girl's hand, sHe said: "Rosy, I'm going; but love the Lord, and some day we will be together again for ever." Then ' her head sank hack, and She went went to live In a home even high er aliove the earth than the top-floor of that dingy old house at the North End of Boston. And now, all of her that was ngly, and all that was old, Is at rest in a narrow grave not a hundred rods from where am writing. At its head stands a simple stone, and on it ) this inscription: - ' BETSEY SANDERS, AGED 82.
