Beneath a dark and dewy sky,

Behind the shadows whispered, "wait;"
Cut she unheeding murmured, ''Lnte.
Late, late sweetheart, 'tis growing late?
Oh, then, goodnight, hut not goodbye!"
I Watched her flitting up the stair
And longed to be where thought could fly;
But half way Up the darkened stair
She turned and chid my lingering there;
"Even love," she cried, "must rest fo bear
New buds for blooming! Only swevr,
You'll not forget. Ah, do not BWear,
And then goodnight, but not goodbye!"
Her voice is in my memory yet,
A still small sound that passeth by,
Fpi who can love und then forget? 1
But death is sleep; and somewhere yet
Love's morn will me and never set!
Therefore elose up iny collin : let
Loye rest uwhile from eate nnd fret.
?Sleep well, sweetheart; I'll not forget*
Goodnight, indeed, but not goodbye.

"Chestnuts? I\o," returned RalphMoore,
looking carelessly down on the upturned
face, whose large, brown eyes, shadowed
by tangling curls oi'ilaxen hair, were ap
pealing so pitifully to his own. "What
do I want with chestnuts?"
"But, please, sir, buy 'em," pleaded the
little one, reassured by the rough kind
ness of his tone. "Nobody seems to care
for them, and?and-"
She fairly burst into tears, und Moore,
who had beeil on the. point ol rushing
carelessly pant h.or, stopped instinctively
"Are you very much in want of the
money ?"
"Indeed, sir, we are," sobbed the child;
"mother scut me out, and-?"
"Nay, little, one, don't cry in such a
heartbroken way," said Ralph, smoothing
down her hair with careless gentleness.
"1 don't want your chestnuts, hut here's
half a crown for you, it that will do you
an) good."
He did not stop to hear the delighted,
incoherent thanks the child poured out
through a rainbow of .smiles and tears, but
strode on his way muttering between his
teeth. "That cuts oil* my supply of cigars
for the next two weeks. But I don't care,
though; the brown eyed object did cry as
if she hadn't a friend in the world. Hang

every poor creature out of the slough of
While Ralph. Moore was indulging in
these very natural reflections, the dark
eyed little damsel whom he had comforted
was dashing down the street, with quick,
clastic footsteps, utterly regardless of the
basket of unsold nuts that still dangled
on her arm. Down an obscure lane she
darted, between ruinous rows of houses,
and up a u arrow wooden staircase, to a
room where a pale, neat looking woman,
with large brown eyes like her own, was
sewing as busily its if the breath of lifo
depended upon every stitch, and the two
little ottos were contentedly playing in the
sunshine that temporarily supplied the
place of fire.
''Mary! back already? Purely you
have not sold your chcauuts so goon ?"
"O;another! mother, see!" ojnculatcd
the" almost breathless child. "A gentle
man gave me a whole lfuff crown. Only
think, mother, a whole half a crown!"
It Ralph Moore could only have seen
the r tpturo which his half crown gift
diffused around it in the poor widow's
poverty stricken home, ho would have
regarded still less the t^mnorary priva
tion of cigars to which .his generosity had
subjected him.
Yearn mine nod-went. The little ehest?
nut girl passed as entirely out of Ralph
Moore's mrtnory ?s if pleading eye? bad
never touched the soft, spot in lii-t heart;

? The crira?b'u window curtains wer?
closely drawn, to shut out the Btorni and
tcniliest of the bleak . December night ;
the fire was glowing cheerily in the well
filled grate, and tho dinner table, in a
glitter with cut glass, rare china, and
polished silver, was only waiting for the
presence of Mr. Audloy.
. "Whatcan bo it that detains papa?"
said Mrs. Audley, a fair handsome mat-,
ron of about thirty, as she glanced at tho
dial of a tiny enameled watch. "Six
o'clock, and he does not; make Iiis ap
"There's a man with him in the study,
mamma, come on business," said Robert
Audley, a pretty bgy, elcVen yeafs old,
who was reading by tho fire.
"I'll call him ngain," Baid Mrs. Audley
stepping to the door.
But'as- she Opened it, the brilliant gas
light in the hall foil full on the frtco of an
humble-looking man, in worn and thread
bare, garments, who was leaving the
house, while her husband stood in the
doorway of his study, apparently relieved
to be rid of his visitor.
"Charles," said Mrs. Audley, whose
check had paled and flushed,'"who is
that man, and what docs he want ?"
"His name is Moore, 1 believe, and he
came to see if I would bestow upon him
that vacant clerkship in the bank."
"And will you ?"
"I don't'.know, Mary I must think
about it,"
"Charjes, give htm the situation."
"Why, my love?"
"Because I ask it of you as a favor,
and you have said a thousand times you
would never deny me anything."
"And I will keep my word, Mary,"
said the noble-hearted husband, with an
utiecti muiUi ki:-.-:. "I'll ?vi?te thn ii'llutr ?*
note this very evening. I believe I've
got his address about me, somewhere."
An hour iatcr, when Bobbie, Frank
and Eugene were snugly tucked in bed,
in the spacious nursery up stairs, Mrs.
Audley told her husband w hy she Was so
interested in 1J10 fate of a man vthoin she
had not seen in twenty years.
"That's right, my little wife," replied
her husband, folding her fondly to his
breast, when the simple tale was conclu
ded. "Never forget one who was kind
to you in the' days when you needed
kindness most/'

Ralph Moore was sitting in his poor
lodgings beside his ailing wile's sick bed,
when a liveried servant brought a note
from the rich banker, Mr. (.'harks And
"Cftjod Jtcws, Bertha," he exclaimed,
as he rend the brief words "We shall
not starve ; Mr. Audley promises nip the
vacant situation.'"
"You have dropped something from
the letter, Ralph," said Mrs. Moore, point
ing to a slip of-paper on the floor.
Moore stooped to recover the cstray.
f t was a fifty-pound note, neatly folded
\t\ i\ piece of paper, on which was writ
ten, "In grateful remembrance of a half
crown piece that a kind stranger bestow
ed on a little chestnut girl over twenty
years ago."
Ralph Moore had1 thrown his morsel
of bread upon the waters, and after many
days it had returned to him*.

We regret to learn the death'at her
homestead in Fait field County, near the
Ric.hlnnd line, of Mrs. Frances Powell, in
the 73d year of her age. She exhibited
up to a very recent period the unwonted
mental and phj steal vigor which had char

She was the mother of out well-known
fellow-citizens, Dr. John W. Powell, and
Henry Powell, and of Mrs. Samuel
Mrs. Powell was an almost life-long
member of the Baptist Church, and bad
always illustrated by her life of energetic
piety, the virtues of a true Christian lady.
