Pet was silting there in one of her thoughtful moods; I. could see thio' the side window, though the luxuri ant grape-vines hid me completely from view. At first sight the boy startled mc. He was uncouth he was ugly. Not only that, but his brow was low; and to me his eye was vicious. Some children would have screamed at such an apparition Pet did not. Instead, a smile broke over her face like a burst of sunshine. Pet made us often tremble, often 'sigh her father and me. Not that she was preternaturally good or giv en to extraordinary speeches; but there was a strange attractiveness about her an unearthliness tho' we never would say the word to each olhsr. Her little soul seemed tb flow out toward you; you felt im pelled to speak, ay, even to think purely in her presence. Nothing human repulsed her; I have shudder ed to see her clasp a filthy little crea ture round the neck. Every body was 'nice' with her, and in her vo cabulary 'nice' meant good. AJ5ut to go back to the intruder. It startled me to see her smile; but in an instant the bov looked shamed. A. .flush spread to the purplish swel lings under his eyes. Is 'oo htingy?' cried Pet, in hei clear, small bird-like voice. A mo ment after she emerged from her corner'with a lovely rosy apple, that tilled Dotn wee hands, and running ( toward him, her eyes shining, 1 tho't I had never seen so beautiful an ex pression in a human face. laue 'is. and 'ooi oe nice oo is nice, ain't oo?' iHe seemed to hesitate. iluke ,it,' said I, cheerilv; 'Pel would rather vou would eat it, 1 f, know.

Have vou a home?' I asked A a home that's what I nev er, had.' 'Div him somefin more, mamma,' said Pet, pitifully, grieving for the tears. .gHe looked at her with an almost wo'fehipprag clance. ! have two or three cords of wood that- want splitting,' said I I'll do it,' he cried briuhtenintr - 'Can I trust vout' I asked; but I tried to say it with a smile. 'Yes, vou maVi indeed vou mav, he said; and then, with a swift mo ,tion jerked his sleeve across his eye, :He told' me he was called bertie. and i imparted his name to Pet. So every little while she would pot, pat to the head'of the stairs, and crv out: 'Bertie is oo nice?' then tliiow back her little head and burst into fuch'silvery peals of laughter, that 1 laughed softly to myself every time I heard her. Bertie came next day to finish the job, and his gray eyes that I had thought so wicked, grew positively beautiful at sight of Pet. 4 ' 'O, I love her, ma'am!' he exclai med. O, Pd give anything if I might kiss her, ma'am.' Pet, Bertie wants to kiss,' I said. Is 'oo nice?' laughed Pet, suspen ding her busy little operations. 'fcd no J ain't nice,' he said re morsefully. Sh seemed to deliberate a mo ment, then she said, slowly: Well, 'oo mitst be nice;' came up to him and put up her rose-bud lips. He kissed her made that swift, awkward motion with his sleeve again, and went to his work. My husband became interested in the boy. Depend upon it, Hetty,' he said, 'he's a neglected genius, or he never would have shown sensibil ity. I'll see about him.' He did see about him to some purpose. He gave him occupation; found him reliable and steady. The war broke out Berjie enlisted was wounded, aud came near dying in the hospital. From that sick-bed he returned home refined, spiritulized. Ahlmfc. 'he came home to weep ov erPei's still, waxen features. j-GfniV little salvation!', he cried, with tear of agony; 'under God myMiffle Savioil;. , iOJ, Ivrfinher homcaoove, musi rc joicflsces Bertip four .an ear neiEstCdtnjiin Christffor Ihksketch iuiouil Jin:'- Bertie will" be a hini.i ugiti, .1 brand saved from tho'btirniug-, to minister to the heirs o.velorv, As tor Pet, do not think I ever wished her back, ever! ;My waiting 'angel my seraph guide to the courts Df heaven!
