THE TYRANT OF THE HOUSE.
While baby sleops
We cannot jump, or dance, or sing,
Pluv lollv eames or do a thine
To make a noise. The floor might creak j
If we should walk! We scarcely speak,
Or breathe, while baby takes a nap,
Iiest we should wake the little chap!
A strict watch nursie always keeps .'
While baby sleeps!
When baby wakes
But little gratitude he shows,
When other people want to doze!
At night, when folks have gone to bed,
He rouses them all up instead,
To wait on him. Ma lights the lamp,
And warms milk for the little scamp!
Pa walks him up and down the floor,
Sometimes two hours and sometimes
And nurse comes running in a stew,
To see what she for him can do!
And Will and Harry, at the row,
Call: "What's the mutter with him now?"
And I'm wnked up at all the clatter
To wonder what on earth's the matter!
Such uproar in the house ho makes,
When baby wakes!
So if asleep, or if awake,
The house exists but for his sake,
And such a tiny fellow he
To be boss of this family! .
HELEN'S TWO LOVEKS
ful slave, lnsread of the happy compan
ion he had hoped to make her.
"If she never loves me," he thought,
bitterly. "If all my love fails to win
hers, what will my life be?"
He did ber Justice. He knew that If
tate. He gave him a brother's devotion
until the last parting came, and when
be was laid In the cemetery, Will Spen
cer took Helen and Mrs. Raymond
back to their home and left them.
It was three years later when he
his love failed to win her heart, his gold j came home from a European tour and

' Will Spencer
over and over,
wearying of the
repetition and yet never able to end It
by saying heartily that ho was glad
and triumphant, or bitterly that he was
sorry and ashamed. The plain face
stared him in the face, that Helen ltay
mond did not love him and that Mrs.
Raymond had urged his suit, and ex
erted her maternal Influence and elo
quence until Helen had consented to
be his wife, telling him very frankly
that her heart was In the grave of her
lover, George Vanhorn, who had been
killed In a railway collision nearly one
"Mother wns never willing I should
marry George," Helen said, sadly, "be
cause) he was poor and we have suf
fered all that poverty can Inflict He
was on his way to Colorado, where his
, brother had been successful, when ho
Will Spencer winced, for he was rich,
very rich, but then he put to the wound
that soothing salve, "I will win her
love when she Is uiy wife," that has
wrecked so mnny Uvea. It may come,
this love that will not be hidden, to a
man and wife, after they are bound
together for life, but the risk Is great,
ami Will Spencer know It , ,"
'et he cherished the delusion that
love In the end would win a return,
and he knew his own love to be strong
and enduring. He had stepped back
when George Vanhorn was met with
such a smilu, as he could never win,
had kept from pressing his suit when
the name of Helen's lover appeared on
the list of the killed In the account of
the railway collision, but after the lapse
of several months ho had won Mrs.
Raymond to his side and so, by prosy,
wooed Helen and won what? a cold,
reluctant consent to be his wife.
Yet she wns not cold, this girl of 20,
whose heart had Ihjwi crushed ever
since the day when George Vanhorn's
name was recorded as dead. Ho could
have told how her eyes could soften
with love's tenderness, her cheeks burn
with love'B blushes, her low, sweet,
volco tremluo with love's whispered
words. , He had won what all the Spen
cer gold, tho riches of long generations,
could not buy.
Before that fatal railway collision she
was a bright, beautiful girl, with large,
oxpresslvo brown eyes, a voleo of
music, the step of a fairy, singing as
a bird sings, from sheer Joyousnoss of
heart, bringing a Jest to all the house
hold worries, laughing merrily over her
own blunders In the culinary depart
ment, turning old dresses, renovating
old bonnets without a complaint, living
on lovo and hope.
After that day she moved about slow
ly, her eyes were dull find weary, her
duties met with a rigid mechanical pre
cision, her Hps compressed, her checks
pale, as shadow of her Joyous self.
Mrs. Raymond was often afraid that
she would yet miss tho golden prize she
had partly won, and heartily seconded
Will in his preparations for a speedy
wedding. It was Mrs. Raymond who
went with hlra to open tho house that
ho had bought to adorn for his bride,
who aided him In tho selection of car
pens, curtains, furniture, and gave him
Instructions regarding tho kitchen de
partment, of whose needs ho was as ig-
uorunt as most young bachelors. It
was Mrs. Raymond who received an
anonymous letter containing a liberal
Bum, which she quietly appropriated
for a trousseau ami a Bultablo dress for
tho bride's mother.
She was a woman of rare taut Hav
ing won Helen's consent to bo Will
fcpeucer'8 wife, she never bothered her
by complaints aliout her listuess Indif
ference to her lover or her future pros
pects. She simply made all tho ar
rangements for her, without once ad
mitting a possibility of change. The
betrothal was spoken of on all occa
sions, the preparation of tho house, tho
selection of tho trousseau referred to,
lu matter of fact words that rondo Hel
en feel, as It was intended sho should,
that she had walked Into a net from
which there was no escape.
And Will Spencer know it all, and
writhed under the knowledge, being a
frank, loyal man, whose Impulses were
generous and honorable, and who loved
Heleu with all the strength of his heart
Often he asked himself how he could
endure life, If ho found his wife a faith
wns powerless to make her happy. He
knew that if ber mother died or could
not be benefited by her marriage, she
would rather beg her bread herself
than be his wife.
While matters stood In this unsat
isfactory state, Mrs. Raymond made a
suggestion: "I want you to go away
for a month," she said to him, "and let
Helen miss the constant devotion that
she has had ever since your betrothal.
Let her feel that a void has come into
her life, and how dull and cheerless it
would be if she lost you. The wedding
day is set for June 10, and this is April.
Stay away until the 5th or 0th of June."
It seemed to him good advice and he
had business in the West that would fill
his time profitably. It gave him the
first really happy moment of his en
gagement, when Helen said gently, yet
with a shudder:
"I cannot bear to think of you on rail
way trains, Will. Write often, that I
may know you are safe."
Her Hps met his In a tender pressure,
such as a loving sister might bestow,
but with far more affection than she
had ever before given him. Was he
Winning her? The hope made this un
expected absence endurable, and for
two weeks life held more pleasure than
it had done In all the days of his court
ship. Then came a blow, sudden, sharp,
overyhelmlng! He was In a large
Western city, when, after night, re
turning to his hotel, a man on crutches
asked for charity. The voice was fa
miliar, and. In a shock of horror, the
face struck him. One gasping cry es
Tho man would have hurried away,
but be followed easily.
"Let me go, Spencer !" the crippled
man pleaded. "I did not recognize
joul Don't you know I am dead?"
"I know you are coming in here with
me," Will said gently, substituting bis
arm for one of the crutches and enter
ing the hotel whore he had a room.
"Steady now!" and he led him, feeling
how ho trembled, until he had him
seated In a great arm-chair In his room,
and felt his heart stirred with deepest
compassion at the havoc pain and pov
erty had made.
He would not let his guest speaJs un
til he had ordered a supper and made
him comfortable. Then, turning to
him, he saw he was weeping.
"See what a woman you make of
me!" the poor fellow said. "You
thought I was dead?"
"Yes! All your friends think: so.
"It was a narrow escape, and I won
der why I was spared. Nine months
In a public hospital have loft me crip
pled and Incurably ill. They would not
keep mo after I could get about on
crutches, but I have begged or starved,
and It will not be for long! I would not
let anyone know for fear It would get
to to Helen!"
"You want to hide from her?"
"Yes yes! What would her life br
tied to mine? You will not betray me.
"But you may recover."
"No. I should only be a wreck If I
could, tiut I cannot I have Internal
Injuries tnat the cold and hunger of
hist winter have Increased -fatally."
Will Spencer literally could not sp?ak.
This man asked of him only the si
lence that would give him his wife.
Could he let Helen remain In Ignorance
of this strange adventure the memory
of her old love might die away In time.
When he could speak again he led the
conversation to Helen. He was very
frank, telling George Vanhorn how
truly he hud been mourned, but saying
nothing of his own hopes, and It was
easy to Bee how George had loved her,
how utterly sclf-sacrltlclng his silence
had been. To spare her pain, he had
kept from hor all knowledge of his own
But his pride yielded to Will's en
treaties to be allowed to befriend him.
Ho was very weak, very 111, and he id
lowed Will to get hlra a pleasant room
In a quiet boarding house, to furnish
him with necessary clothing, to engage
a doctor, and to tuko a brother's place
And then true, unselfish love triumphed.
"She will never marry me," Will
thought, ruefully, as he folded a long
long letter, "but she shall not be cheat
ed out of what little happiness life may
still hold for her.
Ho wrote, too, to Mrs. Raymond, a
letter that caused that respectable lady
to grind her teeth, but which sho obey
ed, packing her trunk and accompany
Ing Helen in the Journey westward.
It was Will Spencer who met the two
at the depot, and accompanied them to
the boarding house where he kept Mrs.
Raymond In the parlor after sendlu
Helen unstalrs, alone. It was Will
Spencer wlw smoothed awny every dif
ficulty, engaging rooms for mother and
daughter and quietly effacing himseb.
It were far too long a story to try to
record tho three months that followed
George Vanhorn was resolute on one
point He would not marry Helen. Ho
had no hopo of recovery, but If the tin
expected should happen, he would not
risk ruining Helen's life by binding it
"Oti,' she would cry, "what am I to
deserve the love of - two such men?
Mother, It humbles me to think how
they love me."
And by this love her courage was
sustained through the three months
when sho and her mother smoothed
George Vanhorn's path to the grave.
Such happiness as could be hers, she
kuew that she owed to 111 Spenee
who showed his love only by his care
of the Invalid. Ho never spoke of love
to her, giving her up entirely, but upon
her lover he lavished every kindness
wealth could procure, or friendship die-
called ou Mrs. Raymond. '
'The old lady, sir, is dead," the ser
vant told him, "an' Miss Helen's llvln'
In street Maybe yees didn't hear
she's come iDto some money from her
uncle, sir, and Mrs. Gandy, she's took
this house, sor."
Come Into some money! Well, she did
not need him. He would wait awhile.
But In a few days a little note reached
"It was unkind to let me hear of your
return by accident Will you not come
to see me?"
Would he not? And when he went
he could not keep the love out of his
eyes or his voice, and she at last! Her
eyes drooped under his gaze, her cheeks
blushed for him, her voice faltered
with tenderness. He had won his bride!
And he had no secret hidden from her
loving "eyes, no treachery he would
dread to have her discover. By the
frankness he had thought would, alien
ate her forever, he had won hor true,
faithful love, a devotion ns entire as
that she had given in her girlhood to
the man he had so nobly befriended.
New York Ledger. '
THE FIRST TORPEDO.
HE LOVED HIS DOGS.
Exploded Too Soon to Destroy a Fed
Mr. R. 0. Crowley, formerly electri
cian of the Torpedo Division, C. S. N.,
contributes to the Century an account
of "The Confederate Torpedo Sen-ice."
After describing the organization of
the first torpedo service, Mr. Crowley
Having our system now perfected,
we established a torpedo station, some
five or six miles below Richmond, by
submerging two Iron tanks, contain
ing one thousand pounds of powder
each, in twelve feet of water, leading
the wires ashore, and connecting them
y.lth a galvanic battery concealed in a
small hut In a deep ravine. From the
battery-house the wires were led to
an elevated position near by, where
the man in charge could keeip a look
out for passing vessels. The position
of the torpedoes In the water was indi
cated by two sticks, planted about ten
feet apart on the bluff, and in a line
with each other and the torpedoes; and
the watchman's Instructions were to
explode them by contracting the wires
as soon as an enemy's vessel should be
on a line with the two painters All
this being prepared, we awaited the
approach of a Federal gunboat As
was usually the case,, one came when
least expected,' on a beautiful clear
day, when our entire force except the
man stationed as lookout was absent
In Richmond, preparing other war ma
We were apprised by telegraph of
the rapid approach of the gunboat, and
Immediately hastened toward our first
station: but we arrived too late. The
man In charge had not seen the United
State? flag for a long period, and never
having previously seen a gunboat so
near, lost his presence of mind, and
fired one of the 1.000-pound powder-
tanks when the gunboat was at least
twenty to thirty yards distant. A great
explosion took place, throwing up a
large column of water to a consider
able height; and the gunboat by her
momentum plunged Into the great
trough, and caught the downward rush
of a wave on her forward deck. The
guards were broken awny, half n dozen
men were thrown overboard, and other
damage to tho gunboat was caused.
The steamer then . turned about as
quickly as she could, and prepared to
retrace her route down the river, after
picking up the men who had been
washed overboard. There was a bril
liant opportunity to accomplish her to
tal destruction by firing the remaining
torpedo ns she passed back over It
But nlns! the man had been so astound
ed at the first explosion that he had
fled precipitately, without waiting to
see what damage had been done, and
the gunboat was thus enabled to re
turn down the river In safety.
One of the Most Charmlna Traits of
Sir Walter' Scott's Character.
'He was a gentleman, even to his
dogs," said a visitor to Abbotsford in
1830. "When too roughly frolicsome,
he rebuked them gently so as not to
mortify them or spoil the natural
buoyancy of their character.
Dear old Scott! How he loved to
stroll with his dogs through the woods
of his beautiful home, there amid the
rural scenes which he loved so dearly
he would take long, enjoyable, satis
fying walks with his pet companions
who added not a little to the happiness
of his life. They were elevated by
him to the position of steady and sens
ible friends; they possessed rights to
be respected and feelings which It
would be scandalous to outrage. Scott
always kept one window of his study
open that his dogs might leap In and
out as the fancy moved them. '
One of the most charming periods
of Scott's life was that which he spent
with his family at Ashestlel, a coun
try mansion on the bank of the Tweed
in a solitary mountain district At
this time he was engaged in writing
"Marmlon." Many of his literary
friends visited him' here. On Sundays
they would all, accompanied by the
several dogs, go picknicking to some
favorite spot frequently the ruined
tower of Elibank and there dine In the
When his dear old dog, Camp, died,
Scott had been invited to dine out that
day, but declined on account of "the
death of a dear old friend." His most
famous dog was the greyhound,
Malda, whoame upon the scene when
the Waverly novels were beginning to
set the world talking. It is Malda
who figures at his feet In the well
known sculpture by Steel. Washing
ton Irving, during a visit to Abbots
ford In 181", enjoyed the pleasure with
Scott and his dogs. "As we sallied
forth, every dog in the establishment
turned out to attend us; Malda de
ported himself with a gravity becom
ing his age and size, while the others
worried him gamboling, frolicking
and leaping at his neck. "I have no
doubt," said Scott, "that when Malda
is alone with them he throws gravity
aside and plays the boy as much as
any of them, but he is ashamed to do
bo in our company."
In the autumn of 1820 when a large
party, including Sir Humphrey Davy,
Dr. Wollaston and Henry Mackenzy,
were starting out with the dogs, a
little black pig was discovered to be
frisking about among the dogs with
the evident Intention of Joining tho
party. "This pig," said Lockhart,
"had formed a strong and most senti
mental attachment to Scott and was
constantly urging his pretensions to be
admitted as a regular. I remember
him suffering under the same perti
nacity on the part of an affectionate
It Is a sad task for Scott when quit
ting his home to seek health abroad,
which he did not find, to leave his
dogs; his last orders were that they
should be well taken care of.
