It's strange how little boys' mothers
Can flid it all out as they do,
If a follow does atything naughty
Or says anything that's not true!
They'll look at you .ust a moment
Till your heart in your bosonm swells,
And then they know nil aboutit,
For a little bird tolls!
Now whore the little bird comtus froot,
Or whore the little bird goes,
If heo'scovered with beautiful lllnhmae,
Or clear as the ringlng of hells,
I know not-.but this I am sure of'
A little bird tolls!
Thie moment you think a thlug wickedl,
The mtuomtent you do t thing baid,
Are angry or sullen or hateful,
Got ugly or stupid or mad,
Or tease a dear brother or sister
That Instant your sentence he knells,
And the whole to mauitmma in a mlinut
That little bird tolls!
You may be In the tdepths of a cloaet
Where nobody seeon but a mouse !
You may be all alone in the collar,
You may be on the top of the house,
You may he in the dlark and the silence,
Or out In the woods and the dllls
No matter ! Wherever It happena,
The little birds tells !
And the only contrivance to stop him
IslJust to be sure what you say
Sure of your facts and your fancies
Sure of your work and your play;
lie honest, be bravo tand be klndlly,
Ile gentle and loving as well, 0
And then you cani laugh at the stories

So uontn left the stockade at that time,
but afterward, when it was quite certain
that a largeo Iaody of the savages were
gathered in the surrounding woods, the
stttlers determined to send some one to
Lexington to warn the people there and
io obtain assistanee.
'Two lof the garrison volunteered to
imuhrtake the dalngerous mission. 'T'here
were hlorses in the fort, and mounting
two of tho swiftest, the brave men darted
out of the open gate, and rode as fast as
they could down the Lexington road.
Every body in the stockade looked to
see them faill,shot lown byindian bullets,
but the concealed enemy remained per
fectly quiet, thus showing that
they counted on their presence being
unsuspected, and were also numerous
enough not fetar any reinforcements that
might be sent from neighboring stations.
The Indians among the corn were not
in sight ofthe gate or of the road, and
they still continued to nmake their hor
rible noises.
"Yell' away !' exclaimed an old Indian
lighter'. "We\' ain't fools enough to go
out and lost our e'allt, and the dillured
imps ought to know it.'
'Tl'he garrison now held a colnril in

their own a ivet, btt they could not per
but should file along by twos or threes, a
Sas naturally as possible, so as to excite
no suspicions among the Indians.
In order to inn the faster if they had
need, the women took off their shoes or
"moccasins and went barefooted. The
strongest of them carried two pails, but
º a large n umber took only one.
Before the gate was opened the min.
later knelt and prayed, and they all
º knelt, and prayed, strong, rough
men, and pale, fair women. When
they arose there were tears in the eyes
of the bronzed frontiersmen, and the
faces of the women were paler than ever,
but tfey looked very brave and solemn.
Then there were hand-shbaking and
hurried farewells said, for none knew
whether they would ever meet again.
Captain Reynolds kissed his wife and
daughter, and with a broken voice said:
'Look out for mother, Debby. She
is not so spry as you are. Take good
care of her, and may God save you all.'
One by one, two by two they began
to slip through the gateway and start
for the spring. Two of the strongers
pioneers stood by the gate to close it if
a rush was made. The rest of the men
were gathered along the stookade at the
portholes, each with a loaded rifle near
him, besides the one he held in his
hands, ready to fire. on the savages if
they offered to attack the women.
Some of the latter could not help
glancing timidly toward the tall woods
and thick underbrush, but most of them
walked carelessly, as if they suspected
nothing, though their pale faces and
swiftly beating hearts told of the fear
and suspense they were in.
Young Deborah Reynolds was the
bravest of them all, she whom the cap
tain had asked to guard her mother. As
tpey stepped out of the gate the heroic
girl placed herself before her older com
'l)Don't do so, Debby,' said the mother,
'walk behind me, then if the Indians
tire they will have tokill me before they
can hit yo(.'
'No, I told father I would look out
for yon; and for his and the children's
sakes you t ill lot me,' replied Deborah.
'I should not be missed half so much as
And so the brave young woman kept
between her mother and the savages,

A glimpse of reod legs in the shrubbery
and the glint of a tomahawk when a
sunbeam shbone upon it, did not serve to
make her more assured, but in a few
minutes they were all back in the stock
ade and not a shot had been fired.
Some of the buckets were not very
full, it is true, but the poor women did
tqeir best, and it was a heroic deed. In
all history we know of no more daring
deed than the women of Bryant Station
perfornmed on the borders of the West
eti wilderness almost a hundred years
'iTho lndians kept hid until night,
when nearly a tlhonsand of them at
tacked the stockade, hoping to surprise
it. liut they found the garrison ready
for them, and they were met so reso
lutely and vigorously, that they had to
fall hack, leaving many dead and
'Thie iext dpy the snrrender of the
fort was denmllnde,, but a spirted re
fanl was returned, and as the savages
had already experienced the determined
resistance of the whites, they molested
them no further, and stole away through
the great forest.
Before the second night a strong body
of settlers from Lexington and adjacent
settlements arrived at the stockade, con
ducted by the two brave men who had
rode away the previous morning for
succor. Bryant Station was saved.
The little stockade fort is now a large
flourishing town, in the midst of a pop
Iulous and highly civilized region. Many
years have passed since the last Indian
left the spot, but the visitor there will
be told the story of the heroism of the
Bryant Station women, and on the out
skirts of the town he will be shown a
ruined cellar, above which stood the
house where brave Deborah Reynolds
asd her brave husband lived for many
years, and where they died more than
forty years ago.-Boston Budget.
A terrible story comes over the sea
from Magdeburg, Germany. A little
girl plucked a flower from a grave in a
cemetery. I'be sexton, to punish her,
shut herin the deadhouse where were
four corpses. He forgot her until morn
ing, when, throwing open the doors to
release the little prisoner, he found her
dead in a corner,her eyes fixed in aglassy
stare of horror, her lips bitten through
in her agony of terror, She had died of
fright. Hadgingis to good forhim.
