SHAIiL. THE BABY STAY?
In a little brown bouse,
With scarce room lor a mouse,
Carce with morning's first ray,
(Though ho told her the way
I am sure I can't say,)
A young lady so wee
That you could scarce tee
Her small speck of nose;
And, to s'wak of her toes,
Though it seems hardly fair,
Sine they surely were there,
Keep them covered we must;
You must take them on trust.
Now this little brown house
With scarce room for a mouse,
Was quite full of small bos,
With their books and their toys,
Their wild bustle and noise.
"We. dear lads," quoth papa,
"We've too many by tar;
Tell us what we can do
With this damsel so blue;
We've no room for her here.
So to me 'tis quite clear,
Thongh it gives me great pain,
I roust hang her again
On the tree whence she came,
(Do not cry, there's no blame,)
With her white blanket round her
Just as Nurse Russell found her."
Said stout little Ned,
"I'll stay all day in bed.
Squeeze up nice and small
Very close to the wall."
Then spoke Tommie, "I'll go
To the cellar below;
I'll just travel about.
But not try to get out
Till you're all fast asleep,
And so quiet I'll be
You'll not dream it Is me."
Then flaxen-haired Will:
"I'll be dreadful still;
On the back stairs I'll stay,
Way off, out of the way."
Master Johnny, the fair,
Shook his bright, curly hair,
"Here's a nice place lor me,
Dear papa, do you see!
I just tit in so tight
1 cruld stand here all night."
And the niche in the wall
Held bis figure so small.
Qno father, "Well done,
My brave darlings, come ont
Here's a shoulder for Will,
Pray sit still, sir, sit still!
Valliant Thomas, for thee,
A good seat on my knee,
And Edward, thy brother,
Can perch on the other,
Baby John, take my back,
Now, who says we can't pack ?"
So Love, give us room.
Ami our birdie shall stay,
We'll keep her, my boys,
Till God takes her away.
From the Galaxy for September.
There was absolutely not an inter
esting person in the car. I don't even
except myself, as people given to
sweeping assertions usually do; for,
although 1 might know what intellect
ual and moral qualities of mine ought
to excite interest in my fellow-travelers,
the little broad mirror at the end
of.tlie car told me they did not pub
lish themselves in my face. On the
contrary, it showed me a pair of tired
gray eyes gleaming, not sparkling
eyes with a red spot below each,
which at that distance reminded me
painfully of war paint, a crushed hat,
a dustv fcc and ill-arranged hair,
each aim all loudly proclaiming the
fact that I had passed the night in a
I was the onlv person in the car for
tunate enough to have a whole seat to
myself, and it was only ly dint of
much spreading out of shawls, satch
els, and a useless book or two, that I
had been enabled to keep it. Hut now
I had been looking out for an interest
ing person who might share it with
me, for I was dreadfully tired of keep
ing (juiet, of not talking. During the
last fifteen hours I had not uttered a
word, except to ask the conductor a
few questions, which I knew how to
answer as well as he did, though, per
haps, not so brieflv. The only recrea
tion or diversion 1 had in all that time,
was in buying and eating crystalizcd
pop-corn, shaking my head decisively
at the train boy when he laid a pack
age of prize candy down beside me,
and watching a little girl cry herself
to glecpj in the agonies which follow
the even distribution of peach-fuzz
over the neck and cheeks.
My solitude would soon end, I felt
sure', for if but one passenger came on
at the next station, 1 would have to re
sign half of my seat to him or her. At
the last station a timid-looking man
had been turned into our car by the
brcakman, who had said, " All full in
there," referring to the car just in
front of us. He had looked at my half
empty seat, but met with no encour
agement in the limp, uncomprehending
look I returned him, and passed on.
At the other end of the car he had suc
ceeded by the help of a brisk shake
and shove administered by the con
ductorin awakening and bringing to
terms of decency a man who was pre
tending to sleep all over his seat. Of
course 1 watched with interest the sub
duing of the scltish wretch, and had
felt ashamed of myself ever since, and
had resolved that at the next station,
no matter who appeared, I would
promptly and hospitably gather up my
belongings and offer that person "a

tion by stopping unhesitatingly beside
mc, and saying he supposed. a ail tne
other eats were occupied, he would
have to ak for one with inc. Thus re
lieved from humiliating mvself. 1 gra
ciously swept my wrap- and books into
my lap and made room for him. But
he" took them from mc and stowed
them awav in the rack above mv head
( all except the book, which he kept to
look over, aud which casilv onencd a
I conversation, that while wc were to-
get her never ceased. e crossed the
wide ocean of every-dsy literature,
talked about -the dust. heat, condition
of the road, even about ourselves. I do
not remember what he could have
learned of me, but I found out that he
was a bu-incss man (I knew that be
fore he told me. bv hi practical, sy-
, tematic wav of dealinj with every
topie-he took up,) had traveled every
where, and had seen the world in a
wide-awake fashion. He lived in Al-
i bauy, and was on his way home. He
wanot married, and he and his moth-
cr kept house together.
I could not, if 1 -liotikl try. describe
him personally, for hewaoiicof thoe
, rare person who earn with them an
indescribable chnrm, a" prace of their
own, which itclf cannot be conveyed
by words, and without which a descrip
tion is nothinjr.
After he came the remaining two
' hours of our journey flew far Vater
than we did. and I felt that 1 must be
' dreaniiiiir when I looked out, and aw
that we were actually slacking speed
, at mv station.
J " Whv, here we are. at home, I ex-
claimed, in a voice full of dimav. and
objectinglv. " It can't be possible.' -
He looked as though he thought it
' impossible too, but began promptly to
get mv various packages together,
when the unrelenting brakeman shout
ed shouted, " Dryden !" in at the door.
" I'll carrv these into the depot for
you. I wish I could tell you how I've
enjoyed meeting you ; our acquain
tance is just begun, not ended, I feel
sure," he said, rapidly, as we moved
along the aisle.
4 .On the platform stood my sister
ettie and cousin Allegra. Ihey
rushed forward with "Oh, Lucille!"
and gave me a rapturous welcome, as
we made our way to the sitting-room.
My wraps were hastily deposited upon
a chair, and he only had time to catch"
mv hands in his for a moment, as he
said, " good-by until we meet again," i
to touch his hat to the girls, and hur-'
rv back to the already moving train
I followed him to the door without
speaking, and looked after the vanish
ing train until there was nothing left
of it but a line of black smoke which
went sidling oft" over the tree-tops.
"Who was he?"
" What was his name ?"
"I don't know."
" Don't know 1 why didn't you find
out ?" came in concert from my ques
tioners. I never thought too, girls."
" Oh, you mortal goose ! And don't
he know who you are, or what your
name is ?"
"No, I guess not; at least he did not
" And how in the world are you ever
going to meet again, as he said voti
The enormity of our mistake came
over me crushingly. How should we
ever meet again, or find each other? I
tried to tell them what little I did
know about him, but they declared it
simply amounted to nothing. And as
we walked home, they loudly and
mournfully bemoaned my stupidity
in not letting him know my name.
"I've not the least doubt he would
have written to her," Nettie said to
my cousin, quite ignoring so weak
minded and' inefficient a creature as
myself in the conversation.
"" Of course he would have written
to her. Did you notice how he looked
at her when he said good-by?",
"Yes, I noticed; I don'tthink in all
my life I ever saw such handsome
eyes," sadly soliloquized Netde.
"Oh, he "was handsome beyond de
scription," answered Allegra.
And so they went on until wc reach
ed home, torturing me by praising
what I had allowed " to slip through
my fingers." They always considered
me hopelessly impracticable, aud now
they gave me up entirely. The pleas
ure" of once more being at home, aud
of talking over' the incidents of my
long visit, made me for a while think
less of the stranger, who had so inter
ested me. Still, every dav I saw more
clearly how much I had liked him, and
how "thoroughly delightful the two
hours spent with him had been. Prob
ably if I had met him in the usual con
ventional way in which I met all the
men I knew, I sjiould 'have forgotten
him at once ; but there was something
unusual just a tinge of romance so
dear to every feminine heart aud so I
For ? week or two the girls, my per
secutors, is'kcd continually of him,
a mournful plcaro in listening to
thcui, even repeat"!.? raE,li of the con
versation I had had with bin, warts of
which, they said, convinced then more
than ever that he was greatly interest
ed in me, and in the proper hands
might have been made to " come to
something." For lack of abetter name,
we knew iiim as Mr. A., using the ini
tial letter of his native city ; and many
were the plans we made" as wc sat nt
our sewing. The favorite and most
probable one was, that he would come
to Drvdeti to look for inc, for that was
what he must have meant when he saitl
we should meet again.
One evening, about a month after I
had returned lionie, I had wandered in
an idle and restless state down through
the garden to the gate, where I stood
in the soft twilight listening to all the
sounds of the dying summer. The late
insects were still shrill-voiced and
alert, and the low wind which swept
through the trees had begun to take
up the minor strain into which all na
ture seemed to have fallen. A melan
choly chilliness had crept into the air,
which made inc tee! that the pleasant
happy summer belonged to the past.
The evening depressed me, and I won
dered why I had come out into it, and
was just turning to go back to the
house, when I saw, far up the road,
one of our little neighbor boys coming
whistling along. 1 waited for him
idly, not knowing why, perhaps to
catch the tune he was whistlintr. He
.. .,, l
was coming from the village, and as
he approached me he called out: " I've
been to the postoflice, Miss Lucille;
what would you like to have ?"
" Whatever you have for mc, Jack ;
a letter tirt, and if rot that 1 will be
content with a paper."
Well, here's a letter for you,' and
he put a olid white envelope into my
hands. The light was too aim to pre
vent me reading my name in a familiar
yet unknown hand" and in the corner,
clear and black, the postmark Albany

alone, and sit in the flickering firelight
and think over every sweet word in it.
It would be time enough to tell them
in the morning. So, hastily springing
up, I flew to the door to turn the key,
but just as I laid my hand upon the
knob, the room filled up with a yellow
light, and looking back I saw the half
sheet of my letter curling 6lowly upon
the irlowine hearh- The first part I
still held ; the last bad fluttered away
from my careless hand, and the draught
had drawn it into the Arc.
In an instant I was shaking the uu
burned fragment free from fire and
ashes, and frantically rubbing its char
red edges in mv fingers. The upper
half of the pageVas browned, but leg
ible, but the rest was gone the name
was burned off.
The door burst open and the girls
came bouncing in.

" What letter"? What is the matter,
Lucille? Dear Lucille, are you cra
zy?" But I could only hold the black
pieces in my hand, sitting on the floor
in utter despair, and made them no
answer. They sat down beside me,
and Allegra picked up the envelope
and read the postmark.
" Is it from himLucille ?"
"From Mr. A. Lucille?" cried Net
tie, seizing the envelope away. " Then
why in the world are you making such
a fuss ? A whole sheet 1 Do let us

" I cannot; oh, Nettie, it is burnt !"
"Burnt? Whv, here it is in vour
" But the last page the page with
the name on is gone. It blew into the
fire, and now I cannot answer it."
Profound silence reigned.
" I had not looked at it. I wanted to
read it just as he wrote it. I never
thought to read the name."
They both fell to crying, partly
through sympathy, partly through
vexation, and partly through thwarted
" Go away, girls. Don't blame me
and don't pity me. It wa9 your fault
and it was mine. Go away ; I want
to be alone."

but I am not. Lately Nettie's husband
has moved to Albany, and last winter
she wrote for me to visit her. " If you
will let we know when you are com
ing, I will meet you at the depot ;" she
wrote, " but if vou do not write, take
a carriage and drive to No. "
It was quite late when I left the cars
aud handed my checks to the driver
into whose carriage I got. It was too
dark to sec distinctly who my com
panions were, but alittle girl was
talkinir irailv to her father, and verv
! soon included me in her conversation.
" Arc you going to our house, too i"
sho asked, laying her hand on my arm.
"Lucille, you must not talk to stran
gers ; it is very rude, my dear," said
her father, drawing her back to him.
The driver mounted his box, aud we
rattled out upon the brilliantly-lighted
streets. The glare of the lamps lit up

George Gordon Byron was born in
1788; the son of a ruined roue, of
whom he never knew anything, and of
a high-tempered, high-s'plrited High
land woman, ruined and drive half
mad by the spendthrift huaband, whom
still, iu her way, she continued to love
and admire for" his very vices. Father
he had none, except the disreputable
memory of a man, with which he was
sometimes taunted, aud from which he
could derive neither support nor hon
or ; and little good, but much harm,
came to him from his surviving pa
rent, the furious, foolish, sometimes
fond, and always termagant mother,
ruined in temper and nerves as well as
In purse, who had once been an heir
ess, courted and caressed, and whose
poverty had neither digniU nor pa
tience to niake it tolerable. The first
scene in his life opened in a little
house, "up a stair," in Aberdeen,
where this disappointed and exhasper
atcd woman clinging with all the des
peration of genttel poverty to recol
lections of her wealthier past, and fan
tastic hopes of a future which should
make up for all her privations by
turns fondled and vituperated the sol
itary, bright-eyed, club-footed boy,
whoas verv affectionate to his nurse,
and fell irito"babv-lovc with his little
girl companions, but has nothing else
recorded of him as au individual being.
The way in which rank is deified in
such circumstances is, unhappily, very
well known to most observers. Such
a little household bowing down in
miserable worship of a rag nobility,
or even gentility, and referring every
thing in earth and heaven to the stand
ard of mv cousin, Lord So-and-so, is a
sight which wc have all looked upon
with ridicule, or reprobation, or gen
tler pity and shame, as the case and
our tenderness may be. But the in
tensity of this worship was increased
in Byron's case by the fact that chance
might at any moment elevate the very
worshippers into a sudden heaven of
aristocracy. This was the dazzling
hope which animated the obscure life
iu which the child-poet received his
earliest impressions. Many a lonely
woman in such circumstances, has in
spired her child with high resolutions
and the most noble of hopes. This
world has been conquered, how often,
at their mother's knee, by men never
fated to gain earthly battles ; and tiiany
a sweet dream of greatness ambition
too visionary, too distant, to have any
of the vulgar force of that real passion
has wrapped mother and child in
that profouudest, tenderest union,
sometimes coming to nothing, but
sottictimcs, too, coming to noble is
sues, high labors, and triumph and re
ward. But Mrs; Byron never breathed
into her son such ambitions or hopes.
What she held up before him was peer
age, and the glorious thought that one
dav or other his name might be re
corded iu its immortal pages. I le was
but a poor little boy then, hurtled in
the street, perhaps, "nowadays respect
ed by his comrades, going" to school
with the "merchant's son from the
nearest shop, nnd no more thought of
than Jack or Jamie ; yet the time
might come when he would be a lord.
This was his earliest inspiration ; noth
ing higher was dreamed of in the at
mosphere where his young mind first
unfolded, with all its intense desires
and appetites. Whether there is any
real indication of a rapacity for purer
influence in the foolish story of that
childish passion which was brought to
an cud at ten years old, it is hard to
tell : but imagination loves to believe
that the gentle quiet af the little femi-
innc plnv-room, in wlneli the hahy

The following singular tradition i
related ot a key ia a collection of curi
osities preserved Jn the arsenal at
Venire. About tm? year 1600 one of
those dengcroHS men, in whom extra
ordinary talent is only the fearful
source "of crime and wickedness b
yond that of ordinary men, came U
estaliHh himelf as a merchant or
trader in Venice. The stranger. whoe
name na Tcbaldo, became enamored
of the daughter or an ancient house,
already afBanced to another. He de
manded her hand iu marriage, aud
was, of eewrac. rejected. Ktiragi'd at
at this, he studied how to be revenged.
Profoundly skilled in mechanical arts,
he allowed himtelf no rest until he
had invcuted the most formidable
weapon that could bo imagined. This
was a key ot large size, tnu namuc oi
which was so constructed that itcnuld
be turned round with little difficulty.
When turned it disclosed a spring,
which, ou pressure, launched from the
other end a nee-rite or lancet of such
fineness that it entered the flesh and
buried itself there, without leaving
anv external trace.
Tebaldo waited at the door of the
church in which the maiden whom he
loved was about to receive the nuptial
benediction. The assassin sent the
slender steel uuperccived into tho
breast of the unsupccting bridegroom.
The wounded man had uo suapicion of
Injury, but, teized with sharp aud sud
den pain in the midst of the ceremony,
he fainted, nnd was carried to his houae
amid the lamentations of the bridnl
party. Vain was all the skill of the
physician, who could not divine the
cause ot this strange illness, and in a
few days he died.
Tcbaldo again demanded the haad
of the maiden from her parents, and
received a second refusal; they, too,
perished miserably in a few days.
The alarm that those deaths, which
appeared almost MRraculous, occasion
ed, excited the utatost vigilance of the
magistrates ; and when, au examina

merit was found in the gangrened flesh,
