A boy beheld a rosebud pe.r O'er KUrroundin heather, 'Twas so young, and morning clear, Qnick h ran to it oer Stooped and g7d with pleasure. Rospbnd, rosebnd, rosebud red. Rosebud it the heather! Sad the lioy, " t il pluck thee, lap Rosebud, in the heather." Said the Rose, " I utina, beware ! Long wilt thoo the memory bear, Tbon Khalt pluck me never !" Rosebud, rosebud, rosebud reI, Rosebud in the beather. Ah ! the wild boy plucked that young Rosebud in rbe heather ; Vain the plaints that sorrow wruns. Though she stroseled long and strong, She's despoiled forever ! Rosebud, rosebud, rosebud red, Rosebud in the beather. A BOY'S STORY. " To tell the truth," said John Haviland, as he threw aside his evening paper, and faced the little group in the parlor, " I am fast growing out of patience with this text 'a woman at the bottom of it.' It would be strange in this world made up, as far as we are aware, of nothing but the two sexes, if a wo man would not occasionally be found at the bottom of anything good ! It si the injustice of the thing that makes me angry. Now, there are hundreds of poor fellows who owe all we are, all we have, and all we expect to become, in this world or the next, to the unselfish love of woman." The gentleman's face was flushed, and he spoke very warmly and feelingly, so much so that his wife, rocking baby to sleep in the further corner of the room, inquired : " But why should you care, John? It has always been so, and always will be so. We don't think much about it now, because we have been taught to expect it." " But you should care ! and you should fight for each other more than you do. There is one chapter in my life's history that I have nlways kept locked in my heart, but tonight I feel as if it were my duty to open it for your inspection; and I do it lor the love of woman for th? love of the woman who made me what I am worthy to be, the husbandof a good woman." " Trny, .Jonn," earn airs, iiavi-: land, softly approaching baby still held tight to her bosom "you absoluteiy frighten me." " Let's have the fetory," said the rest of the group, certain that some thing good might be anticipated, and John commenced, at first a little timid, butgaining in confix dence as he proceeded. " When I first came to New York, at the age of twelve years, to see my fortune, I can call myself a precocious chap without danger of being accused of an unusual degree of selfappreciation. 1 was quick to learn everything, the bad as well as the good. My employer used profane language, I picked up the oaths he dropped with a naturalness that surprised even myself. The boys in the office all chewed tobacco. This was a little the hardest iob I ever attempted, but after two weeks of nausea and indescrible stomach wrenchings. I came off victorious, and could get away with my paper a day with the best ct em. " True, eery word of it," con tinued the speaker. " One afternoon I was sent with a note from my employer to a house in the upper part of the city. I hadn't anything to read, but I had plenty of tobacco, and with that I proposed to entertain myself during the two or three hours I must spend in the passage. For some distance I did not "notice who were beside me, but by and by a lady said very softly and pleasantly : 'Would you please, little boy, be more careful. I am going to a party this afternoon, and should hate to have my dress spoiled.' " I looked into her face. It was the sweetest face lev er saw. Pale, earnest, and loving, to my boyish heart it was the countenance ot an angel." " v hat m the world did you say f interrupted Airs. Haviland, her bright eye filling with tears, as she saw how his memory of this beautiful woman had affected her husband. " Say ! There-was very little could say. I think all I did for some time was to look. I managed to dispose of the tobacco, however, and wiped carefully, all of which I felt certain she saw and mentally commented upon. " Have you a mother, little boy ?" she next asked, in the same low tone. 44 4 No ma'am," I answered, and I felt my throat filling, and I knew I must swallow mighty fust from sobbing. 44 ' You have a father, to keep then, I suppose?" she kept on. 44 4 No, ma'am, tio father.' 44 4 Brothers and sisters V 44 1 Neither, ma'am.' 44 4 The little boy is all alone in the world ? ; 44 4 AU alone, ma'am.' "'How long has Lis mother beeii dead V and the dear woman looked away from my face, and waied till I could speak. 4 Two years,' I answered. 'I4 And you loved her V eutne nexi 'Dearly,' was ail i could say. She was silent for a moment, and:-then snid so sweetly Oh ! I shall never forget it 41 i, And what do you think your dear mother would say to know that her little boy was guilty of such a disgusting habit as this V pointing to my cheek, where the tell-tail cud had vainly tried to stand its ground. . : 44 4. I must leave now,' she con tinued;, but here is my card, .and ify3U i'Sjirfc f me most any tfTerring,1 I shali oe glad to see you, and perhaps we can be of service to each other.' 44 She gave nie her little gloved hand, and to my dying day I shall never forget the sensation of that moment. I could not bear to part with her; without her I felt that I could do nothing ; with her I could grow to man's estate a inan in the truest sense of the word. From that moment tobacco never passed my lips. 44 As soon as I could summon courage I called upon the lady. Well do I remember how my heart beat as I waited in the elegant parlor for her to come down ; and how awkward I felt as I followed my guide to her private sitting room. Here she got at every point of my life, and before I bade her good-bye, it was arranged that I should spend two evenings of each week at her house and study on these occasions just what she thought best. "No lover ever looked forward to meetings with the mistress of his heart any more ardently than I did to these meetings with my friend. I grew careful of my personal appearance careful of my conver sation; and strove in every way to be worthy of her noble f riendship. Two years passed in this delightful manner two years that made me. My friend not only attended to my studies, striving also all the while to sow the right kind of spiritual seed, but she procarrcd me a busi ness situation with a particular friend of hers, where I remain to thia day. Nobody but God knows what I owe this woman. During .U. l.o U - it. - . p years I noticed that she grew con stantly pile and thin; she never was betrayed into speaking of her self. Sometimes, when I woald ask her if she felt worse than usual, she woujd reply : 44 4 Oh, no; lam only a little tired that is all. 4 One evening she kept me by her sofa much longer than was her custom, while she arranged lessons, and laid out work enough, it seemed to me for months. 4,4 Why so much to night V I inquired, conscious that my heart :hed and vaguely suspecting the cause. " 4 Because, dear,' she answered, I do not want you to come for the next week, and I am anxious that you should have sufficient work to anticipate, as well as to keep you busy. I think I can trust you to be a good boy, John .' 44 4 I think you can ma'am,' I answered almost sobbing. 44 4 If I should see your mother, my dear boy, before long, what shall I say to her for you ?' 44 Then I knew all, and mv grief knew no bounds. It is no use to go on. She died two days after ; and when JT hear folks saying ' There's a woman at the bottom of it,' I fetd like telling the whole world what a woman did for me." Ladies' Logic. Ladies' logic is not always the clearest. A married lady with a family who lived in a villa, was asked why she was at the expense of keeping a cow, seeing that it would be surely cheaper to buy milk for the household. 44 Well," said she, in reply, 44 we keep the cow because we have a field quiet at hand, which answers very nice ly." 44 But," was the rejoinder, 44 why do you not rent the field ?" The answer was : 44 Because you know we have got the cow." A lady in reduced circumstances men tioned to a friend that she had iust arranged to rent a house belonging to a baker in the city. The friend was somewhat surprised at the an- nouncement, considering the ladies circumstances, and asked if the expense would not be too much for her. " Oh, not at; all," was the answer, 44 we'll take bread for the rent. The Lynchburg (Va.,) News says: "We are glad there is one Southern man in Congress who is not afraid to say his soul is his own. Vance, of North Carolina, when asked by a Yankee member if he thought the re bellion was right, said that he did, and under sitniliar circumstances would rebel again. While we do not wish to see Southern members show temper on the floor; we like to see them talk like men, and when it is necessary, answer a fool accord ing to his folly." A Danbury Alburn. There is sort of delirious joy in looking over a family album, espe cially if it is a very old album with a sprained back, which occa sionally and unexpectedly drops through your fingers, leaving a couple of cousins in one hand, and three aunts in the other, and the balance of his family under the chair. The first picture is of .-in old grrudemnn with an expression of wary cautiousness in his face as if he was engaged in dodging a will bull, and was somewhat doubtful of the result.

If it were pos sible to have a preliminary bridal tour, under proper escort, and the young couple had experience of all the annoyances necessarily entailed by a trip of that character, and if they were familiar with the tempers and dispositions of each other, the wonder would be, not there were so few happy marriages under the ar rangements of modern society, but that there were so many. Marri age was not a partnership. He did not wish to be understood as saying that alone, for it was a cold word. Marriage was a companion ship. Driving home from the bus iness cares, as Disraeli used, they would find that the old individuali ty was gone that a new compan ionship existed ; and as the best illustration of the idea of marriage, be would go back to the time of Lord William Bussell, who was represented at his trial by his wife ; and of all the pictures which hung in the historic temple, there was none so attractive and beautiful as the picture of Lady Bussell in com panionship with her husband, not only in the Ourt room, but in the prison, and in his last moments. And, if they asked for a definition of true marriage, it was comprised in the word companionship. Yvoman who are afilicted with drunken husbands may bless the days that witnessed their weddings, as there is a mine of wealth in their possession if they will remove to Iowa, where a man pays ten cents for a drink, and his wife collects $3, 000 damages frcm the - man who sold it to him. This is 1,000 per cent, better than life insurance, and the wife keeps her husband, and he keeps the liquor. " fi ' " The Courtship of the Twins A 'eri Jloiiiinlie Stoiti t the.
