Frmne out of the rose land of dreaPS 8beMtnes at early morriitg: The dew upon the meadow gleamLs. Pelt as a bride's adorning. Aroma from the moaning pines, And kl dsof blohmlug clover: The noise brook that sings and shines. With willows bending over. The eastern sky I all adfame, As though. t one bthbolding. The gold and sapllpire clouds that eame Were heaven's gate' unfolding. tat all this glory stands apart, Nor charms her with its beauty, For care slts heavy on her brow, Where falls the line of duty. The cows await the milking time, With soft and patient lowing, The sturdy farmer in his prime, Must hasten to his mowing. His wife must speed the morn's repast, And work with nimble fingers, For fat mers all from tirst to last, Make hay a bile sunshine lingers. Aad when the meals are o'er, the pails, Of foaming milk are waiting. With fraglarnce caught from sunny vales, To future joy relating. The cream lies thick, like cloth of gold, Where shining pens are brimming, Their riches gathered told on fold, All ready for the sklmming. Then, later, as in olden days. With much of stir and flutter, By werey bands the dasher plays, And wins the golden butter. Lad as the days go on, sad ea No time for rest and pleasure; "A woman's work is never done," Is itre in fllest measur And as the sun sinks in the west, And day grows into even, Weary and worn out she goes to rest, And almost longs for heaven. -L-slde . ilUs Ln Good Reaowstping. IN RHmA'S GARDEN. It wa only a little spot south of the bouse, but violets blossomed sooner than anywhere else, and great bursting pinks made the air spicy while other people's were only in bud. There were daffodils in the grassy border, and blue-bells and blue spider-lilies. There are two rose-bushes, one cinnamon and one damask, while double sweet gilly lowers sowed themselves and eame up every year along with mignonette and chrysanthemums. It was a sweet, fragrant, old-fashioned little garden, which Rhetts's mother had tended and taken pleasure in, and now It was Rhetta's. There she worked all her spare half bours, sowing and watering. weeding and transplanting, till her little hands were brown, and her cheeks like her own cinnamon roses. Aunt Dorcas, in the kitchen, used to wonder I 'bow on airth that child could be so t content all alone out in her posy bed!" But Rhetta was not so often alone of late, since they had taken a boarder. Ralph Callender found that the pleas- a antest path to the house lay through i the little Lower-garden, and when his jobs of copylag failed to occupy his time, what could be more natural than to use his leisure helping the blushing gardener? It was he who carried away t all the weeds, div;ded the white peony roots sad reset them, and dug more thoroughly than Rhetta ever could around the dear old rose-bushes. Over their work they fell talking, as young people will, and alredy Rhetta's father had begun to watch them a little sar- t lously above his spectacles as he sat on a the porch, while one of the neighbors had remarked privately to Aunt Dot- e eas that it was a pity young Callender was not a man of fortune as well as of In truth riche had taken unto them selves wings and fown away from the Calleaders a year before, so that Ralph. s instead of becouiing Junior partner in an old and prosperous bus.nes, saw a mothing before him but What his two s hands couldearn, and being totally un prepared for such a prospect, be had a to tae a little time toge t uedto iS t adto find out which way to taran. a Meanwhile he had drifted to this b seborban town, and while waiting to Sad a situation s olerk or accontatmt, a dd eoin o support himne* and e It was the day they had bee tra pleatin touch-ae-not., ad Ralph had C trown himself down under the plum- d tree for a respit while lhetta pulled t the faded haksoms from a primrose. c e migLt have been misanthrople ieuy at that moment if he had choe- t Sa, the last line of copylag lay L upon hs table nished, with not so a mseha a h lt for an order for ny d more.

And I want a root of daylily very much, and some tea reem cuttings. and a double Genoese violet; a blue salvia too, and-Oh. Mr. Callender look! There is Rose Porter now, driving up the street in her pony phaeton. Iss't she lovelyv" As the jaunty basket phaeton moved slowly by. a pretty, bright face glanced from it, smiling cordially at Rhvtta. and then was overspread by a look of sudden recognition and pleasant sur prise at sight of Ralph Callender, who took his hat off respectfully. "Why, do you know her?" asked Rhetts amazed. "I find I do. She and my sister Sal ly became good friends two years ago at Newport--or was it Nahant! And Miss Porter spent the holidays at our house the next winter. I thought it must be she, when you described her." Ralph Callender paused and gazed reflectively at the ground. He was re calling that gay holiday season when Rose Porter and his s ster were the belles of their set He could have counted his friends then by the hun dred, and nolw--Poverty does make a difference," he thought bitterly. All who had it in their power to aid him had turned the cold shoulder. He was simply a poor man seeking employ ment, and he felt at odds with the world. Rhetta, grown suddenly shy, pulled away the dead leaves from a pink root and said nothing. Newport! Nahant! And people like the Porters for inti mate friends. It seemed to remove Ralph far from her quiet, even life, and to set him where she had no part. The basket phaeton was now seen re turning down the street with its pret ty occupant, who stopped her ponies opposite the cottage with such an evi dent intention of speaking to Ralph 1e Callender that he at once went out of )r the garden and stood in the road at her side. Rhetta saw them shake hands in `g the most friendly manner, heard her ir musical laughter and sweet voice, re though she could not distinguish the Id words; and in a few moments more, to .e her surprise, Ralph stepped into the d phaeton, sat down by Rose, took the reins in his hands and drove rapidly ly away, with a backward smile, which p seemed to say, "She is an old frtend, d you see!" k But when he did not come home for dinner she thought it strange. Her father and Aunt Dorcas made no com L ment, for Ralph had often been absent u at that hour when seeking for employ ir ment. Rhetta did not mention that he drove away with Rose Porter, but a neighbor, who had watched them, came in during the afternoon and spoke of it with great interest. Aunt Dorcas t at once felt a great interest, too, and r Rhetta found it so trying to listen to o their remarks and surmises that she Sslipped out of the. house to her garden, and did hard we ding in her flower beds without sparing herself. But she I heard every step that passed by on the - sidewalk, and knew thae Ralph Callen Sder did not come. a The afternoon waned restlessly away. a He would surely come back by supper time; and Rhetta, in a fresh gown, warwth pansies at her belt, hammed lhttle g songs as she moved about setting the y table for Aunt Dorcas. "I wouldn't put on that dish of honey," said Aunt Dorcas-"not till you see whether he's coming." Oh, he'll come," said h ; but r she stopped singig. E Mr. Wood came in, washed his hands r at the sink and sat down in his place at the table. Aunt Dorcas passed him s sup of tea. S "Where's CallenderP" he asked, looking around. r "Why, haven't you heard?" said Aunt Doras. "He drove of with Rose Porter and we haven't eaught sight of him since." "e The Porters are old friends of his, " said Rhetta flushing up. s "Hum! hum!" muttered her father, as be drank his tea from the saucer, in which he had cooled it. Aunt Dorcas now questioned the girl I as to all she knew abhout this old friend ship oand at the elose, said, with the - air of one who meant to do her duty a by all, no matter how mercilessly: a "Well, like uas not they'll make a matoh ofit.

The eldest child. Nellie, 1it years of age, has acted as housekeeper since the death of her mother, and has t managed to clothe the backs and supply a the mouths of her four younger broth I er from the $1.50 a day wages of their Sfather. Last night it was very hot In I their cottage, and Nellie, after putting Sthe little folks to bed, and singing and Sfanning them to sleep, put her father's supper on the back of the stove, and sat down to wait for his return. He was late. 'Ihe little clock on the mantel ticked off the hours and brought 9 o'clock, but no father. Then Nellie re membered that he had been drinking 1 since the Fourth and went out to seek .him. Failing to find him she returned, Stired andl worried with her heavy cares.

An hour later she was awakened byt the sound of falling timbers, and springing to her feet she saw the whole end of the house on fire, while clouds F of smoke filled every room. What she did tirt shite can not tell. All she knows is that when her first neighbor arrived t he met her coming out of the burning house with the last of her little brothers I in her arms. The other three were lying on the grass in front of the house ' in their night-clothes. Her eldest brother, Jimmy, says she came up stairs and.taking them one by one, car ried them out in safety. tier face is r burned, and her hair is soorehed, but otherwise she is unhurt.

Horse-thieving was a very common thing in that part of h the country, and some of the residents of the county in which I lived had formed an anti-horse-thief association. When a horse was stolen it became the 11 duty of every member of the association to thoroughly arm himself, mount his steed. and start in pursuit of the thief. One day one o of the members of the association lost a string of three valuable horses. The identity of the thief was unknown, but 1 fortunately a clew to the d-rection he had taken was given by a boy, who had seen a stranger with a number of horses going west from town. Within less than half an hour affer the loss had been discovered a band of thirty mem bers of the association were in hot pur suit of the thief over hill, down ;de, and through forests. We managed to strike the fellow's trail about 2 o'clock in the afternoon and followed it closely. At half-past 7 o'clock in the evening k we ran across him in a thick clump of bushes, the horses staked about him. We closed in about him, and in less time than it takes to tell it the horse thief was under arrest. A "court" was organized without a moment's de lay, and a trial lasting not longer than lten minutes followed. The fellow was I found guilty and sentenced to die. I felt sorry for the scamp-tried to in tercede in his behalf; he was a young Sfellow with whom I had been acquaint sed for some time, and whom I knew to come from highly-respected parents in Illinois. It was of no use. The captors insisted that he must die, and only laughed at my entreaties. To d add to my disgust I was selected as the one to shoot him. " "Say your prayers, boy." said one of the men to the young fellow, who had been tied to a tree. 4 "The poor cuss didn't know how to pray, and asked me to help him.

Wiovlgi~y htLy~4, LIFE IN A CIRCUS TENT. The Glitter and 'tow are on the Out side-All Hlands Have to Work Hard. The're is an inliiv:t::lity possessed s by the c ren, Ian. especially in the Sc::e of tIhe old-time showman who has jorllllUneye(i eui, wwIgolns and horseback through the cross-ruads and green . lanes of the remote rural districts. He comes in contact with many sorts of people, in every condtition in life, and I his knowledgn of the characteristics of the,, inhabitants of the different parts of the country is oxtentsive. A reporter of The Mail and Express recently called upont a showman at his residence in I Brooklyn, anti gained much information about the ups and downs of circus life. "I have been out every season for twenty-tw, c:ars,'" sail he, "and I be lieve I am ant le to give :is many points about the business as any man )ou will tfid in Brooklyn. A circus man who follows the calling for any length of time has athundant opportunities for knowing the country as well as the IhabitsL and customs of the people he indls in it. Of course, th- e are lots of people besides showmen who travel o"nstantly, but the majority of these merely go front one large city to anoth er. and their ideas of the country are such as can be obtained by looking out of car windows. There is little differ ence in the routine work of a show nowadays, except, of course, the man ner of transportation from one town to another. The first duty after unloading the cars in the morn mg is to get up the stock and dressing tents. This is done by the drivers and grooms. While this work is going on the cooks and helpers are employed putting up the mess tents and prepar ing the breakfast. Tne next act is to get ready for the street parade. All have to take part excepting the canvass and property men, who get up the big tents. The street tarade lasts less than an hour. One object of it is to draw the crowd away from the grounds so the men catn have a. better chance to work. 1 The duties of workmen who travel with the railroad shows are less arduous than in former years. They sleep on the cars and generally get in early f enough for breakfast, but their lives i are in much greatertdanger than they formerly were, Last season six circus men were k:lled in Michigan, where two sections of a train collided. An other accident, in Iowa, caused the death of one man and wounded many more, and everybody knows the fate of poor Jumbo. in Canada. Scarcely a season passes without fatal accidents happening to circus trains in different part, of the country. "Tlhe boss hostlerr has about the moeet responsible position in 'eo working force of a show. He has ,arge of all the horses anld wagons, as veil as the r ng-horses and ponies, t. :ether with their trappings. lie is held .toeonutable when the show gets on the lots late or misses a train through delay in getting away. The press agent is always the life of a circus, large or small. In a big show there is always one or two cars set apart for the use of the press agent alnd his assistants. They are usually shrewd, wide-awake newspaper men, who know how to hustle. I can't say who is the best." Smith's Saloon. 'I hear that Smith has sold out his saloon," said one of a couple of middle aged men who sat sipping their beer and eating a bit of cheese in a Smith field street saloon last Friday night. "Yes," responded the other, rather slowly. "What was the reason? I thought he was just coining money there." The other nibbled a cracker abstraet. edly for a moment, and then said: "It's rather a funny story. Smith, you know, lives on Mount Washington, right near me, where he has an excel lent wife, a nice home, and three as pretty children as ever played out doors -all boys, you know, the eldest not over 9, and all about the same size. Smith is a pretty respectable sort of citizen, never drinks or gambles, and thinks the world of his family. "Well. he went home one afternoon last week and found his wife out shop ping or something of that sort He went on through the house into the backyard, and there, under an apple tree, were the little fellows playing. They had a bench and some bottles and tumblers, and were playing 'keep sa loon.' He noticed that they were drinking something out of a pall, and that they acted tipsy. The youngest, who was behind the bar, had a towel tied around his waist, and was setting the drinks ip pretty free. Smith walk edover ald looked In the pail. It was beer. andt two of the boys were as druek that they staggered. A neigh leors boy, a couplh of years older, lay asleep behind the bar. " 'My dear boys, you must not drink that,' he said, as he lifted the 6-year old from behind the bench. " 'We're playin' s'loan, papa, an' I was a sellin' it just like you,' said the little fellow. Smith poured out the beer, carried the drunken boy home, and then took his own bo s in and put them to bed. When his wife came back she found him crying like a child. II, came b:wk down-town tlhat night and sold tout his b,,siuless, md says he will never sell or drink another drop of liquor. lHis wife told mile about it, and she broke down crying while she told it."
