TDK CHIMNEY'S MONO.

Over the chimney the tight wind tang
And the chanted melody no one knew
And the woman stopped as her bake ahe
tosccd,
And thought of the one ahe had long alnce
loat,
And said, aa her teardrops back ahe forced,
"I hate the wind In tho chimney."
Over the chimney tho night wind Bang
And chanted a melody no one knew;
And the children aald, as they cloicr drew,
"Tlsaomewltchthatla cleaving the black
night through
'Its a f airy that jnst then blew,
And we fear the wind In the chimney.'
Over the chimney tho night wind aang
And chanted a melody no one knew;
And the man, aa he eat on hla hearth below,
Bald to htmielf, It will surely anow,
And fuel la dear and wogca low
And I'll stop the leak In the chimney."
Over the chimney tho night wind sang
And chanted a melody no one knew ;
Bat tho poet listened and smiled, for he
Waa man and woman and child all three,
And he said, "It Is God's own harmony,
The wind that sings In the chimney."
HIS OWN DAUUHTER.
'Dear mother, it is tho best thing af
ter all, that could havo happened! it is
so much bettor than anything 1 dared
to bono for. Because it 1 had not
fallon and sprained my ankle, I would
not havo lost my plnco in tho store, and
II it hadn't been for losing my placo
tbero, I would novor havo gone all over
tho city hunting another situation, auu
if I had not been to so many places,
and if starvation had not stared us in
tho faco, I would novcr havo done so
desporoto a thing, and wo would still bo
trying to keop soul and body togotnor
on tho poor-paid, health-destroying la
bora poor saleswoman's wages."
"Toll mo all about it, dear." And
Mrs. Smith dropped her thin, tired
hands on tho work over which sho had
bonr woarlly all day.
"First let mo put this endless sowing
away, mother. Thcso poor, dear hands
may rest a llttlo now, for I am going to
cot ten dollars a week, and will only
bo away from you four or flvo hours
each day. I shall have tlmo for over so
much sowing besides, and you can just
rest nnd erow stronz oneo more. I ro
coivod my first week's wages in advance.
Seo hero ' and sho cut tho cord that
bound a largo bundlo, and out on the
table rolled several smaller parcols. "I
brought tho monoy homo in a Bhapo wo
could apprec'ato best; at least all thoro
was loft after paying tho bakor. Now,
mother dear I am going to bo extrava
gant and make an extra good cup of
tea."
"But, Ncllio, child, you haven't told
ma-"
"I know, mother," broko in tho
blitho volco, "but, you seo I havn't lor
eotten that it is nearly noon, and wo
have had no brcaklast yot. Thero now

mnihnr. I was lust dlscournfred; I had
been to every store, millinery and dress
maklnc establishment I know of, and
rnroived tho same answor: 'No moro
help needed,' to all my inquiries, and,
as I said, I was desperate, dust as
turned tho cornor of Blonkor stroot, I
saw a man being helped out of his car
riaco; such a splendid carrlago, mother.
Hn was not a vcrv old man, but lookod
as though ho was almost gone with con
sumption. I wont struight up to him,
hardlv realizing what I was doing, and
asked him if ho know where I could got
iTnnlfmont of somo kind. At first ho
looked angry, ns though ho thought my
impudeneo unoearablo, and when ho
saw my faco ho stood still and lookod
at mo as though ho naa seen a gnosu
After a moment ho said: -
"Ics, I will ongago you to como to
my houso ovory day at ten o'clock and
or write for mo, as X uesiro, uu tnroe,
will pay you ten dollars a week for your
services."
"Then ho handed mo his card, on
which I read, Hon. 0. Howitt,-No. 43
Leonard streot, and I romombor that
ono of tho girls had oneo pointed out
his beaulltul residcnco.to me."
"If tho situation and terms aro satis
'factory, you will ploaso accept ono
week's wages in advanco, and como to
morrow at ton."
"Ana ho laid out tho monoy, which I
was only too glad to take,"
"Woro you not a llttlo hasty, daugh
torP" aslcod tho mother, anxiously,
"You know nothing of this maa."
"I know this, mothor, wo were starv
ing, and that monoy was our only sal
vation: besldos It all ocourrcu
quickly that I hardly roallzod what had
happened. Somehow it scorned as
though somo overruling proylilonco was
nuldlnir mo In splto ot mysoii."
God grant it may bo so," said her
mothor.
And now, whlloNollie nnd hor mothor
aro oniovlner tholr dinner, lot us cast
hasty glanco into Mrs. Smith's 'post
life. Her parents having died when sh,o
was young, hor childhood and girlhood
were jftsjed in tho dreary monotony of
her afht's home: a flomo which was
iwMrrlv oflereiUhor: whero food
.clothngIUnd9auQi'.?(on wero doalt out
ito hor, but whoro novor a word or look
.of loyo was bcOtowed upon hor.
What wondor that, whon Claudo
Smith, ono ot hor aunt's summer board
ors. beoamo intorestod in tho girl'
prolty faco, and chy, sweet ways, and
told her tho old, old story, ho? yearling
heart responded vttih a passionalo loyof
Hor auut, being only too glad to liayo
tho girl's support fall ou other shoul
dors, consented to the union, nnd ono
ovcnlng thoro was n quiet wedding at
tho llttlo cottage
Thon followod woeks of happiness tor
the young girl whobo life bad beon so
lonely, until one evening her husband
camo to her with a troubled look, and
told hor that his only rolativo, an undo
in England, was very sick, and had sent
for him to oomo inimodhitoly, and Ink
ing his young wlfo in his arms, ho
soothed her with fond words, saying:
"I daro not take you with mo, dar
ling. Undo Goorgo was vory angry
whon my mothor marrlo l an American
with such a plobian nnmo. 01 nil low
names, Smith, ho claims, stands at tho
very bottom. Undo Oaorgo novor for
gavo mothor; but when both my parents
died, loavlng mo alono, ho Appointed
n guardian lor mo, and kept mo well
supplied with iunds, and now that ho
is dying, I must go to him; but I will
roturn as soon as posslblo to my llttlo
wKs.,'
And so ho loft her with plenty of
monoy, but with an aching heart, and
sho had novor Boon him sinco.
Troubles had seemed to multiply
alter that. A contagious dlsonso broke
out in their town, and carried off wholo
families. Hor nunt fell a victim, but
sho cscapod nnd camo to tho city, hop
ing to find omploymont by which to
support hcrsolf. Sho had a small sum
ol monoy loft, with which sho purchas
ed a llttlo cottago, and lioro Ncllio was
born.
Tho roses bloomed oneo moro in Nol
lio's chcoks, nnd hor step grew light ns
tho weeks advanced. Sho liked hor o
ploymcnt, nnd abovo all, sho liked her
employer. Many substantial ovidono s
of his kindness lmd found their way to
tho little cottago, and many nn oxlrn
dollnr had found its way to Nclllo's
pocket.
As his faco grow thinner and his stop
slower, ho seemed to turn to tho young
girl lor sympathy, and tho sound of hor
sweet voice, or tho touch of her cool
hand, had power to sootho him to rest
when all olso had failed. Ho often
watched hor as sho moved about tho
room, in hor bright cheerful way, with
n strango wistful look in his fading oyos.
Ono morning as sho took hor seat by
his couch, ho laid his thin, transparent
hand on her own, saying, ns hn did so
"Ifcolthat I havo but n low moro
hours of life, nnd I wish to talk with
you," and ho smiled nlmost sadly ns ho
met hor startled glauco.
"Yes," ho continued, slowly, "I shall
soon bo gone, and thoro will bo no ono
to truly mourn for me, unless, it bo tho
llttlo girl I havo taken such au unac
countable Interest in. You will miss
mo, Ncllio?"
For answor sho bowod hor head upon
her clasped hands, and wept.
Ho waited n fow momonts, then tak
ing ono llttlo palm in his hands and
caressing it tenderly ko said:
"No doubt that you havo often won
dered that I, a perfect stranger, should
havo civen you employment without
mostion or reference I can hardly
toll why I did so myself. Porhaps it
was a look on mat pitiful young laco so
liko n dear fnco I used to love I have
carried tho memory of that faco nil
through life. I had only boon married
a low weeks whon I was summoned to
England, and whon I returned 1 found
tho houso whero 1 had loft my dear ono
deserted, but was told that sho wa
dead.
My undo, at his death, loft mo his
proporty, providing I would take lus
namo. but oht it has beon a lone;, sad
life, without my darling.
I havo taken n strango intorest in
you, child and my heart seoms to cling
to you in my last hours. I havo taken
caro of your futuro, my doar, and thoro
is noithor wlfo nor child, brother or sis
ter, to question tho right of tho will
that I havo mado in your behalf, bonio
how, over sinco I havo carried out my
intentions respecting you, I fool so
peacoful; ns though thoro was nothing
lclt undone, nnd 1 am ready to go."
Ho was interrupted by n lit of cough
Ing which lasted so long that Ncllio was
frightened. After sho had laid him
back on his pillow, sho saw his hps
movo, but tho words woro so low that
sho had to bond over him to hoar thorn
"Whon I am gone, Nellio, open this
llttlo obony casket. Insldo you will ilnd
my wife's picture You may look at it,
but I want it buried with mo."
Ho lay back on his pillow and closed
his oyos, wearily. A strango calm stole
over his, features, and an toy chill cropt
into tho hands clasping hers a chill
that sent a thrill of horror to her heart.
Sho bent over him and spoko hl-Jimmo
oh! so tenderly but ho heard not tho
young voice. Ho had passed forovor
boyond its reach.
Tho noxt day, as ho lay in his coffin
Nullio oponcd tho casket and totc out
tho plcluro ho had treasured. Going
to tho window, sho opened tbo civ'Vj and
looked upon the sweot, girlish Vfaco
