Hash, I cannot bear to see thee
Stretch thy tiny hands in vain;
I hare got no bread to give thee
Nothing, child, to ease thy pain. ;
When God sent you first to bless me, .
, Frond and thankful, too, was I;
Now, my darling, I, thy mother, " C
Almoat loDgto see thee die. . '
Slee p, my darling thou art weary ;
God is good, but life is dreary.
I have seen thy beauty fading,
And thy strength sink day by day
Soon I know will want and fever ,. .f ,
Waste thy little life away. '
Famine makes thy mother reckless,
Hope and joy are gone from me; -I
could suffer all, my baby, . i
; Had I but a crust for thee.
Sleep, my darling thou art weary;
' God is good, but life is dreary.
I am wasted, dear with hunger,
And my brain is sore oppressed,
I have scarcely strength to press thee,
; Wan and feeble, to my breast. - - '
Patience, baby, God will help us,
Death will come to thee and me; ,
He will take us to his Heaven, ' '
Where no want or pain can be.

"A beautiful morning, isn't it!" .
"Deliehlful I I could not content myself at
home, so I told Martha Jane I would just run

it would have to be here, unless I happened
to meet you somewhere, laughed Mrs. a. ,
How. Mrs. oimpKiD, aaia uie oiner,

"I have not, but I hear she is greatly un

ludicrous-' - "
"Yoa have seen her. then i " .
"No. but Martha Jane has. It i really
amusing to hear her describe her. call there,
Martha Jane is rather witty, yon know, and
can set off anrtbinp: of that kind perfectly.
: "Decidedly so. uut did not oesnie treat
O. well enough, as to that, but she was
just from the city, and though, I strppose, she
must bci nerscu up on mat account, alisbo
ridiculous in her. I presums Mr. Siropkins
is quite as well able to send his daughter to

but Mr. Simpkins chooses to pay his debts

"I have beard," said the eager,, but less
talkative Mrs. Browning, "that Mr. Jewel is
considerably in debt." - . i ,
"Lawsl 1 guess He is. .Between you and
me, Mrs. Browning, I think it would be
much more honorable in him to pay Mr.
Simpkins what he owes him, before he lavs
out quite so much for his daughter. How
ever, I always make it a point to say nothing
"Was that not Mrs. Butterfield that just
passed?" said Mrs. Browning, pushing aside
the curtain. , . ... ... .. .
"Yes, I believe it was, pretty, isn't she?.'
. "Very pretty, but she looks careworn.'' ,'
"WelL I don't wonder, if stories arc, true,"
said the sympathising Mrs. S. "I suppose
she has very little enjoyment. , ijihe has all
those children to take care of, and does ber
own house-work besides. . I should think,
with as large a salary as Elder Butterfield
gets, four hundred dollars, Be migni anora

; "I have heard," replied Mrs. B., "that she
prefers doing her own work, to being subject
to the annoyance of keeping a hired servant.
"That is what their church try to make out,
but, in my opinion, there are few ladies who
nrefer to do their own work when they can

necessity. For my part, I pity . her, poor

toot' It is such a pity that a man of Elder
Butter field's talent, and one that might do
so much good in his sacred calling, should
set such an exaniDle in hiB private life. How
ever, I know him only by reputation, and
what I hear may not be true. There are
some people. Ton know, that must talk. Dear
knows tcere are gossips enongn in mis town,
I don t pretend to believe one-nan l near,
Do you know, Mrs. Browning, they have
almost had Martha Jane married twoor three

cannot receive a call from a gentleman but it
is construed into something portentous oy

"Very true," said Mrs. S., rising to go.
but before she could take her leave, another
theme for her busy tongue presented itself.
There goes Miss Granger, " said she, pausing
on the step. "Poor girl, how I pity herl" -.
"Pity her, why!" " :
"Havn't you heard, Mrs. Browning? Tim
McFsrlain has' left her, and she is almost
"Is it possiblel I should not mistrust it
by her looks. - Besides, I have heard that it
was she who broke the engagement." a r :

In the always interesting article of ¬
line there is a most gratifying change. The
"tilters" are acknowledged by their wearers
to be just what the newspapers called them

followed by a much smaller hoop, gracelul,

t The fashion for bonnets is still oscillating

Handsome women, and those who consider
themselves so, have no notion of again hiding
their beauty in bonnets of the old coalscut

two classes are' too insignificant in numbers
to influence the fashions materially. Seri

The gored dress, so long in fashion, will

It is made plain at the top-!-or with plaits

with a long train. For reception this skirt

a decided and apparently popular change.
The short dresses, with petticoat to match,
are a great improvement upon the looped-up
dresses, with trainswhieh would sometimes
escape from the best of loopers to sweep the
streets. These short dresses require a sacque
or jacket to be worn with them, and are gen

with them; they have too neavy a iooz, ana
are not graceful with the new short dress.
The short dresses for the street arc made

both of which are fashionable. The skirt is
usually cut with points around the bottom,
and ia worn over a plaited petticoat of the
same material but the petticoat is now ouen
made plain, and when trimmed with gradu
ated bands of velvet is very pretty, and many
prefer it to the plaited, h. very thing in the

[CONCLUDED FROM LANY WERK.]
Some time afterwards tho Mother sent the)
children into the wood to gather sticks; and
while doing so, they earn to a tree which
was lying across the path, on the trunk of,, .
which somebody kept bobbing ub and down
from the grass, and they could not imagine. ,
what it was. When they cams nearer they .
saw a Dwarf, with an old wrinkled bee and "
a snow-white beard. a yard long. . The end ,
of this beard was fixed in the split of the
tree, and the little man kept jumping about
like a dog tied to a chain, for he did not
!rnow how to free himself. He glared at tho
Maidens with his red fiery eyes, and ex
claimed,, "Why do you stand there? are yoa
going to pass without offering me any assist
ance?" "What have you done, littleman?"
asked Red-Rose. "You stupid gaping .
goose!" exclaimed he. ."I wanted to have
split the tree, in order to get a inue wooa
for my kitchen, for the little wood which wo
us is soon burnt up with great lagKots, not

had driven tee wedge m properly, ana
everything was going on well, when the
smooth wood new upwards, and the tree
closed so suddenly together that I could not
draw my beautiful beard oat, and here it
g ticks and cannot get away. There, don't
laugh, yon milked-faced things! are yoa
dumb-founded?" . . ,
The children took all the pains they eouls
to pall the Dwarfs beard out; but without -success.
"I will ran and fetch some help,'
cried Rose-Red at length.
"Crackbrained sheep s-head that yon are! " -
snarled the Dwarf: "what are yoa going to .
call other people for? Yoa are two too
many now for me; can yoa think of nou-
Don t be impatient, replied snow-
White; "I Lave thought of something;" and
palling her scissors out of her pocket she
eat off the end of the beard. And as soon
as the Dwarf found himself at liberty, ha
snatched up his sack, which laid between
the roots of the tree, : filled with gold, and
throwing it over his shoulder marched off,
grumbling and groaning and crying, "Stu
pid I to cut on a piece ot my beautiful beard.
Plague take you!" and away he went with
out once looking at the children..
Some time aiterwards Snow-White and
Rose-Red went avfishing, and as they n eared

cust hopping sbont on the bank, aa if going
to jump into uw vHissr. - Aney ran up sou
recognised the Dwarf. "What are yon af
ter?" asked Rose-Red; "yoa will fall into the,
water." "I am not quite such a simpleton
as that," replied the Dwarf: "but do yoa not
see this fish will pull me In." The little
man had been sitting there angling, and uu-
man had been
fortunately the wind had entangled his beard
th the fishise line; and so, when a great
fish bit at the bait, the strength of the weak
little fellow was not able to draw it out, and
the fish had the best of the struggle. The
Dwan held on oy the reeds and rashes which ,
grew near; but to no purpose, for the fish
puiled him where he liked, and he mcsl
soon have been drawn into the pond. Luck
ily just than the two maidens arrived, and
tried to release the beard of the Dwarf from
the fishing line; but both were too closely
entangled for it to be done. So the Maiden '
pulled out her scissors again and cot off an-
Sther piece of the beard. When tha Dwarf
r this done he was in a great rage, and ex- '
claimed; "Yoa , donkey! that ia the way to
diafigute my face. Was it - not enough to
cut it once, but yoa must now take away the
best part of my fine beard? I dare not show
myself again now to my own people. I

took np a bag of pearls which laid among
the rushes, and without speaking another
word, slipped off and disappeared behind a
stone. : .
Not many days after" this adventure, it '
chanced that the Mother seat the two Maid- -
ens to the next town to buy thread, needles
and pins, laces " and ribbons. Their road
passed over a common, on which - here and
there great pieces of rock were lying about.
Just over their heads they saw a great bird
flying roundand roan and erery now and
then, dropping lower and lower, till at last it
flew down behind 'a rock. - Immediately
afterwards they heard a piercing shriek, and

running up iney saw w iui aurini, nn vnio
had caught theirold acquaintance, the Dwarf, '
and was trying to carry him off. The com- .
passionate children thereupon laid hold of
the little man, and held him fst till ' tha ;
bird gave up the struggle snd flew off. A
soon then as the Dwarf had recovered from
his fright, bo- exclaimed in, hia sqaeakiog
voice, "Could yoa not hold me more gently? .
You have seized my fine brown coat in such
a manner that it is all torn- and full of holea, '
meddling and interfering rubbish that yoa
are!" With these words be shouldered a
bag filled with precious stones, aad slipped '
away to his home among the rocks. .
Tbe Maidens were now accustomed to his
ingratitude, and so they walked on to tha
town and transacted their business there. .
Coming home, they returned over the tamo
common, and unawares walked up to s cer- -
tain clean spot on which the Dwarf bad
shaken out his bag of precious stones, think
ing nobody was near, lae sua was sain
ing, and the bright stones glittered in ita t
beams and displayed such a variety of col
ours that the two . Maidens (topped, to ad
Whatare yoa standing there gaping for?"
asked the Dwarf, while his face grew as red,
as copper with rage; he was continuing to
abuse the poor Maidens, when a loud roar
ing noise was heard, and presently a great
black Bear come rolling out of the forest.
The Dwarf jumped up terrified, ba the
could not gain his retreat before the Bear
overtook him. Thereupon he cried oat,
Spare me, my dear Lord Bear! I will give ,
yoa all my treasures. See these beautiful
precious stones which lie here; only give me
my life; for what have yon to fear from a
little weak fellow like me? yoa could not
touch me with your big teeth. There are'
two wicked, girls, take them; they would
make nice morsels, as fat aa young quails;
eat them for heaven's sake.''
The Bear, however, without troubling
himself to speak, gave the bad-hearted .
Dwarf a single blow with his paw, and ha
never stirred after. . ". ..
The Maidens were then going to run away
but the Bear called after them, "Snow- -
White and Rose-Red, fear not! wait a bit
and I will accompany you." They recog
nised his voice and stopped; and when tna
Bear came, his rough coat suddenly fell off,
and he stood up a tall man, dressed entirely
in gold. "1 am a king s son, ne aaia. --ana

The former can by no means be said to pre

the 'elevated' chignon is the mode, making it
