VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY, 8EPTEMBEB J), 1891. $clettet tom. The Little Teaeher. l remetnberher 80 well,as she looked the lirst lny I i-ntiTi 1 the school ihe pale face, made lllll palef by ihe bltick nioiirniiiy which she wore, the linca of care which lorrow Imd WroUght, and tbe expressiou of flrmuess which si emed io llnger about her mouth, Among all tbe lurrowi left ty war iu that deiolated liitic town, hers wai tbe saddest. At h me I Imd heard ber story. The old horoe lD which she lived, alono witli her mother, I ad bccn onc of gaiety and wealth. Tbe otily sister of three older blOtheri, She was the pet of a bouiebold whlch for mllei around was DOtcd forltl hospitiilily. AmOOg tlie maoy visitors who wore always wclcome in Ihe home Wai Patll Brandon, one of her brothera' college friends. Coming at lirst lo see hcr hrothers, ha had fottnd a greater charm,and suh etquent visits wt re n;ade hy love UDder the cloak of fiieinlslnp. Where there were so many eyes, tlie disguise was soon porcelvea, and long before I'aul hail evao edmltted lo ulmaelf ihat be carue more to see Mary ihan her hroth ers, the little malden had been nierci lessly (eased by the whole faiuily. But though they teased, Paul had tio lack of ellent encouragemeut, and one day when he left for his dUtant hotne, he left astheavowed loverof Mary Martin, When Ihe betrothal had bien made iblic and after siveral more protracted visits to Ihe Martin hoiue had .been made by l'.ui1, a day was set for the wedding, lo ihe meanlime more po tent spells had been at work ihan lliis little tveryday taie of romance, and hi fore the tiiue for the wedding cime round a liue of bayone;s brittled between the two homes, the Martin boys had marched to the front, and Paul had enlisled with Ihe enemy. Thcre 'vus r.o dircct break between Ihem, Lut when her youugest brother was brotlgbt home from ihe lirst great battle, dead, With his compauy's flag wrapned around his body and tl.e joy f r the great victory was gloomed by d ath, in a sistcr's anguish she felt that her lover was more thau an enemy, and he COUld bttt accept in sileuce the letter which cime to him tbrougb the lines from the home where he had been iver welcorac writun by the hier of his deartst frlend. And afier the let ter was sent, Mary sat down and critd hcr eyes almist out but neverwavered from what she had written. So four long years passed. Occe, in battlc, Paul and Arthtir Martin met, hand to hand. And the comradea of neither evcr underatood why they flinched and turned pale that once in all their Qghting. It was in a breaat works attack, and by an inttant but tacit consent thiy sprang bi.ek aud turned in opposite dircctions. When all was over, and the remnants came marching home, there wero three green graves in the old cemetery, and three soldier brutbers lay sleeping side by side. And btf re the wiuter had passed, the father loined his boys, and Mary and her mother were nloue. It was then that a letter came from the North, askii g if Paul might eome. He pleaded earuesliy; but with her sorrow fresh in her tncmo y she felt that she could not give her haud across those graves, aud no answerever went. It is then that I lirst remember hi r, as she would go by in her daily walk to and from her EOhool. She had begun the battle for life bravely, and had opened a school, and thos-e who had knowu her iu better days adniired her brave little 1 eart, aud her tehool was soon fu'.l. It was with all the enlhutiasm of a boy of eight years that I lovcd her, and on her almost dally walks to the ceme tery I was her constant companion. The entrance to tbe oonfederate burv-log-grounda wai under a large arch, over which ran a profusion of vines, and across the arch iu bold letteis was thehgend, " Tread Soflly O'er Our Fallen Ileroes." Every spriug, on the day set apait for Memorial day, the grounds were sliewn with all tbe blos soms that the season gave, as to the muliWl notes of the " Dead Murch " the whnle populatiou of the little town came to the foot of the tall sbaft which crowned the blghcst knoll to eommem orate the fallen dead. After her mother, her heart lay iu those graves. No haud but hers evcr kept out the enoroaching weeda from that lot, and in the spriiiL', when the cedars and plnea took on agreener hue, and the tralllng vines wilh renewed freshncss ran rauk and wild over the head-stones and tomls around, that lot was the grccuest, and the sod which grew there was the fresheat and loftest to be syeu iu all the rolling f)ce of the sold'n rs' gravts. To belp her in Ibll work, to cirry her tlowers and brlng her water from the well to iprinklfl the grass and ibmba, was to ne a work of love. Iite iu the eveuing we would stay. Then, when the long summer day W( u'd begin to elose around the hori.ou wilh its dusky gray, I would walch her as she ((atbered up her wrap an 1 little basket .f tools, aud as I would look at the solt, girlish face, so chastened and subdued, but so beantiful witbal, with the Itnct of grief merged iuto the peace of a divine sub miBsiini to her Father's wil!, as we would walk silently back IbrOUgb the ceme tery between tbe overgrown grassts of ueglected lots, I would put my hand in hers, and it seerued as if I were walk in' with a spirit among pplriUi In the spriug of 1868 ihe memorial setvlces had been unusually solemn and elabjrate. On this occasiou a Northern geutleinan, since the war a true friend to the South, had been iu vited to attend, aud spe.ak iu mtmory of thoKe whos-e valor he hid before taken occasiou to euloize. With him came a few friends. The p irty had ar rived at noon, and proceeded directlv to the cemetery, where in speaking and other tetvlcei the day had bsen far ipent. When the IUO was almost set, and all the great crowd were well on tbelr way home, I walked quletly down the path to Miss Mary's lot, well knowing that there I would lind the quiet little ligure of niy teacher. She was absorbed in her thouhts and did not hear my step; so I look my i-eat on a ruaib'e railing, to wait uutil she was ready to go home. To me tbe eaddest pilrlmage of all the day was that to those three graves; for there, after every one elee was gone, and when the soundof the dirge, b!own from the band, was faint in the distance, the slight, cirlish ligure would linger, and over the graves which oontalned her loved ones would pray to the God of batllea for strength lo ahido in sub mlttton the flat of his will,tvt ii ihough its Iron hand bad enterid her stml. The spot and the twilight had be come !o mc so associatnd whh her and her sorrow, ns I sat and watched her white Bngert deftly twiuing the vines over the headston( s, or pulling weeds from the grassy walks, that any inter ruption leemed almost an intrusion. The llanttng rays of the suuset were casting long thadoWI from the maple trees, and marking broail shafts of rcd throUgh the tlust whlch lilled the air, when across thc ray which fell in a broad ipaoe between the two trees be hind me came a shadow. I turned in some surprise and saw before me a young man in whom I recognized one of the Northern guaitt, " Can you tell me, my little man," he said, rcsting his hand on my shoul der, " who that ladv i?" ' That is Miss Mary," I answered, " but she must not be ipoken to now." " And why?" he flsked. " Jtecause she is alonc with her dead," I replied, for she uscd to say those words to me when I would want lo belp hcr work. "No, dcar," she would say, " it is my own work, and I would rather be left alone with my dead." At this, with a look of sadness and pity on his face, he I'.epped soflly past me aud walked across the lawn to where she was sitting, wilh the B'jft light of the settina sun touching her golden hair aud llluminatlng her sweet, fair face. She did not see him until he fpoke to her, and then, wilh a quick glanc, she half rose, but sank do.vn again and bowed her head. I could henr him ppeaking rapidly as fce bcnt over her, but she only held her hiad agalnat the lailing and would not !ook up. I saw him takc her hand, and, raiBing her up, look intoher face. Then she broke down, and, restiug her head on his shouldt r, cried as if her heart would bieak. And as he stood with his arm around her, fadly, somehow I felt as if all was well ; so I went down to them and soflly touched her hand. At my touch she raised hi r head from his shoulder, aud oh, such a sweet smile shc gave me. Then lurnlng lo him, she said: " This is my little sweetheart, Paul. Are you jealous?" He laughed, and we all wa'ked home togetber she belwrcu us, and he hokl ing one hand and I the other. The wedding was held at the old home place. and all the school was in vited. In her plain white dress she looked as pure and uusullied as a Bower, and ncver had I seen her face so beautiful. The tnces of the years of care were there, but the contraet only heigbtened the effect. And after the ceremouy was over, and she had told us all good-l-e, she hent over and kissed me, saying, wilh lears iu her eyes, " 15ut I love you bet, ray little knight, nnd will remember you always," J3ut tbi'i was all many years ago, and 1 love to hear of her, more matronlv now, and bearing on her fi 06 the syru patbetic touches of a mother's love, as fche moves in the world whic'i sur rounds her, and making it brlghter to those t.cross whtss pathway her life lines have falli n. Tl.c gravea on ihe alope are still green in the spriug, aud eveiy Memo rial daj-, as the years run on their course, when Ihe crowd, wbich isless revereut and more noisy now Ihan of old,bas celebrated the day with speecbea and salvos of guns, and has followed the band back to the city of thc living, now a city indeed, I love to wa'ch the sime hands, still deft and ninible, train ihe vinis u; the ihaft which has sup planted thc small headstones, The set ting sun still fatll wilh its alchemic light on hcr hair, now stivake l wilh gray, as she prays lo the sani'j God who tuslained her throuuh her years of s r row to briog her at last wilh ht r loved ones to the s.nne goal of all her earthl hopes, wbitber ihe spirits of those over Whoce graves she bends her hea 1 have pteceded hcr. Aud by her side, as she bends hcr head in praycr, standa one whobtars her uame, and on whose face her old expression rests.

CIGAR How Carl Saved His Fallier. it was a week-day aflernoon meiting of tho chlldr ti. Carl Hartwell was one of those piesent. He seemed to listen with his eyrs as well ns his cais, (or he leancd on the back of the bench before him, and stared with hig, eager eyes at tho sptaker. The latter was tellini; abnut the thirst of a diunkard. It was like a furnace, he said, hcated red-hot, and it was asking for liquor tofetdit all ihe time. Carl did not stem to nctice anything else tut the minisler, who was talking to the boyi and girls of his congrega llon, Carl thought of his father, Abram Hartwell, known to be a druukard, known to have this hot thirst. " IIow can vou ccol off such a thirsiV" askt.l ihe minister. M I saw a great river of ice once a glacier oh, so cold! Would ihat lake out the heat from a drunkard's thiist? I know what will Inkeaway his thiist. Doou wanttolnow? Praycr to Godwllfdo it. And wbatevtr you do, whatever remedy you try, whativer medicine, don't leavc out prayer. Add that to it." Carl went away in tferp thought. That thirst, the awful thirst of a drunkatd, and to thlnk lU father had it, this hot furnact ! Oh, if l:c could do anytblrgl He wanted to do so much for his home, where the mother had such an anxious face, the home that was SOnoorand uiedy nnd tmpty. The baby there was such a pinin'g little thing, the ptntrjr somitimes had no food iu it, the hod ever seemed to hick coa', ilie stove was so ofteu with out any lire. Oh, so much needcd to be done in that drunkard's home! Well, he could do one thing which the minister had meiitioned; jes, he could pray. Ile would pray, too, that very day, that very moment. A white little face was turued up to the sky iu its mute Bupplicatiou, like a white tlower asking for rain on a hot day. God sends rain to the llowers; wou'.d l.c not hear the plea of this boj-face, and send a blessing? Harki When Carl opened his eyes, he henrd a rumbling. Il was not "thc sound of thunder accompanying rain, l ut it was the jarrirg tioise of a hcavy ice-cart coming down the hot, dusty street. "And it is stopping at Btokell'tl" thought Carl. Stoktll was tbe keeper of tho rum hole at ihe corner. " Aud oh. there is fatbert" thought Carl. Abram Hartwell was standing on the sidewalk, looking veiy sad and discon tcnted. He wr.s saying to hin.self, " What a nobody I am! Don't do any thing, don't aniOUCit to anything, ex cept to drink! Oh, dear!" Ycs, he did seem to be a very useless being. " What am I good for?" he muttcred. He looked up to thc sky. IIow he wished he could be good! His face was coari-e and red. There are llowers c arse nnd homely, very un like the white oues. Does not God Btnd rain on those homely ores also? While Abram Hartwell was think ing about hh useless life aud raising his hopeh ss face loward the sky, Carl was thlnking abcut that hot thing, the druukard'a thirst; and th, if ice would only cool it and subdue it and stop i ! That icc-cart, what an attractive ob ject it was to all tlie children in the neighborhoDd! Out of the close, hot, poor homes they rushed when they Ii! ard the sound of tho heavy, jarring, rumbling wheels. "The ice-ciin! tlie icc-cart!" thev shouled. IIow thtv ' Criof&r'li: Employers' Liability Assurance iiiL uumii miua iiiii iluli m ii, ut uhc u j the white, sparkling blccks of ciystal, what a rush was made for auy of the cool cbips Qylnz over the sidewalk ! "Iluirahf" they shoutcd. And Sol griuned ai.d let his ioe pick f all clumillj at times on tho ice that there might be a ahower of nice, cool bits lor the hot, thirsty children. All this time Cail cyed lirst his father and tlu n the temptiug ice hower. He wanted to pick up a cooling crystal and hand it to his father that the awful thirst witbin might be tlaked, aud his father not no into Stokell'a saloou. " I don't dare to," Carl muttered more thau once. Sol had linished his dellvery of ice for the neighborhood, cried "Good-by, youngsttrs," had mounted the drivtr's sent, aud was tumlng his team away from the sid : walk, when Carl saw a piece of ice still ungathered, and also saw his father turniiiir toward the aaloon. Crying, "God, do help me lo speak to my father." be ouickly muatered conragc to s.'ine that last piece. Tnen, strangely, he alipped, and, oh, so uenr thofc awful, bebVJF wheels! He did not thiok of that. He only thought of his father going into tho saloon, and cried: "Don't go, oh,this Ice, fatber, take it!" It was all Oarl could do, to ffer his ice, and Ibink of God in just a. swift a tle pray oi : The fntln r turned thing temb e a big and grinding round, bov!

He did not see Carl, but that balt pi t n little spncc betwefll the ehild aud tbe great thrtatening wheela approacblng. " Godholp mi !" murmured Abram Hartwell. Does not God send rain, I said, on thc coarse, homely llowt re? Abram seemed to reaoh Carl in oue single, itLiimuse ltap. He look several leaps actually, but he was uol in a con dition to appreclate time or tlistauce. Those dreaaful wbeell were turuing again toward Carl! Only an Inch be tween him and dealh when a lierce, stiong grn p was fusteued upon him, and he was ei atched away. Then Ahram fell down scnscless on thc sidewalk, to uilense hml been his excltemenl and the reaciim was so grefati When he caniv; out of the dark uess, people in a big cloud sto d about hitr. Chrl, too, was fanning his fall.er with his ragged straw ha', for he had got Abram's head in his lnp, aud he was boldlng to the druukard'a lipa ihat piece of ice. 41 A herol" Bomebody was saying.
