THE COOK'S STORY.
"No "I said;
ivs did say that, when they came
a bGUierm' rae m the kitchen, thosad
beggars. " No," I said ; but lie
would come in, and stood there
lookin' so wretched that I couldn't
do noting fiercer than to snake the
soup ladle at him and yell, " Well,
now, what do you want ?"
" Something to eatj" says he, as
meek as a lamb. "Mother is sick,
and father is dad, and she and I
and baby are so hungry !"
"J est the same old story" says I,
"that every beggar boy has told
me lor years, There go away.
And I remember, as I did it, fast
ening my breastpin, that had
trick of coming Undone. I knew
by that that I had it on. It was
. one I'd had given me, and it was
worth a great deal. It had be
longed to a rich old lady I waited
on, and poor folks generally don't
have such pins. But he looked so
pitiful that my heart melted, and
says I, " I cknow you're lying, but
it's jest me to be imposed upon.
Sit down there and eat your break
fast, and I'll give you some scraps
And then I went on with the
puddhV, keepin' my eye on the
child. He was as white as a sheet,
and his cheeks as hollow as a
man's of eighty, and his poor little
feet were bare, and the tears would
rise into my eyes whether I would
or no ; and" I felt sort o' wicked for
Jiavin' spoken so at first.
The short and the long of it is,
I stuffed his basket as full as
could be and sent him off stuffed
full to; and I went back to the
kitchen, and was feelin' quite con
tented likepand as though I'd done
my duty, when feelin' somethin'
queer about my collar, I put my
hand up, and the pin was gone.
I looked all over the floor. It
wasn't there. I hadn't been out
of the room, and in a moment I
knew who had got it. It was that
brggar-boy. That came of har
borin' beggars for the first time in
my life. I didn't stop long to
think.0 I jest pitched what I had
in my hand on the floor. 'Twas
only a wooden bowl; but I'd a
done it jest the same, I'm afraid if
it had been a chany dish to be
stopped out of my wages. And
out I went into the street. " Mr.
Policeman " I cried, to one that
was iest agoin' by, by luck, "catch
that becrrar-bov. He's hooked
my pin." And I never saw noth
mix like the way that big man
strided up the street and pounced
on to that mulge. lie gave a
screech, and then began to cry ;
inul all I says to the policeman
wasP " Get back my pin. That's
alii care for."
But that was easier said than
done. The iin was not to be found.
He'd thro wed it way, most likely.
And then I was in suchsa boiling
ra-cro that I could have killed
" Lock him up, sir," says I to
tlie policeman, " and I'll appear
a;in him to-morrow." And then
I had to go hack to the kitchen ;
foiChe a cook's emotions what they
may, her missus and her master
won't think of goinp without their
dinner particularly her master.
Well, I kept boiliic and frettin,'
and wishin1 I could hang the hoy.
And never in my life did I have
such a time with missus. It was,
"Cook, the meat an't done enough;"
and, " Cook, the gravy is too
thick." And the unler gal M as
gone, and I had to wait myself.
And at last when dinner was sent
down to me, I couldn't eat a hit of
it. I put it away untouched, and
jest set down and cried.
Xext mornin' I went to the court
and told my story, and the police2
man said he'd seen the hoy throw
Komething away ; and the Judge
Jie sentenced, mm to oe locked up
for I dunno how many days; and
all the while the little rascal kept
crying, and vowing he never saw
It made it ro much the worse.
If he had owned up, he wouldn't
have deserved half so had. Hut
as it was, I was glad to see him
punished, and I'd a been gladder
till to see him hung.
When I went home I felt better;
and so, finding myself hungry for
the first time since I had lost mv
pin, I got out the cold pudding
and a bit of meat, and sat down
alone by myself in the kitchen to
"Xo wonder missus found fault,"
gfaid I, as I put mv spoon into the
pudding. '"There's lumps in it like
stones." And with that I tried to
break it, and couldn't ; and feelin o-
curious muVl put it on the table
iz seemed to be a real stono. " Tn
the sugar likely," gays I, and broke
xne pmuiing away; and there in
the midst I saw my breastpin. It
Had dropped m while I Was mixin
it, and there it was.
About an hour afterwards all the 1
help down the street had it to tell
that Ann Gerry -that's me had
gone mad, and rushed off" to drown
herself. I went with nuthin' on
my my hcd, a wriwgin' my hands
and crying'; but where I went was
to the prison, to beg and pray
that dear boy's pardon of the
judge, and ask him to lock ma up
m the precious innocent s place.
niai ooy x consider my boy
now. lie shall have all I've got
in the savings bank, every cent.
A better boy never lived, and next
to his own ma. She s better now,
and doin' fine washin' and flutin,'
as I can recommend to suit any
lady. That boy loves me. And
this I alwavs sav to all I know
when I hear 'em talk of beggars
and tramps, "Don't judge 'cm be
cause of their poverty. Don't
judge, lest, as our minister reads
out of the Bible, you may oe jnug
ed yourself by them above you."
Those an't the words, but it s
the spirit, and so I hope it's all the
Death. They who have expe
"rienced a very seveic and alarming
illness can, in some measure, real
ize what their feelings will be on
the approach of the king of terrors.
Ihey iounu xne iiunys
world, one after another, deserting
them; first their common amuse
ments, their interest in the bustle
of life; then a thousand long-cherished
but foolish hopes;oand lastly,
even then what to a creature
standing on the borders of eternity
becomes tasteless, wearisome then
the consolations of friendship.
What remained ? A frightful void!
or the love of God, and in that, all
which cheers an angel's heart!
Here is a sublime sight a creature
hovering between earth and heav
en, unfit for the one, unacquainted
with the other; incapable of hold
ing any intercourse with the in
habitants of either world; hanging
on the Supreme Governor of the
universe alone for comfort, as a
child holds with implicit confi
dence the hand of its tender pa
rent. A piece of mechanism, for
transferino- railroad cars from one
track to another without necessita
ting the running of the car several
hundred feet bayk or forward, and
without the use of switches, has
just been patented. Its practical
advantages are a saving ot depot
room and ot time.
McmphU EIPu80auil Pa lic mitl San
Diego and Ciila. Ilailroatls.
Like the first Pacific Railroads
the Southern route has commenced
at both ends. A telegram from
San Francisco gives information of
the departure of Ex-Secretarv Sew-
ard and Generals Sedgwick and
Hosecrans for San Diego, to wit
ness the turning of the first earth
on the San Diego and Gila Kail
road. At the eastern end, General
Fremont and his Company, are
pushing the Memphis, El Paso and
Pacific road with great earnest
ness. Appearances indicate the com
pletion of the entire line in two
years. And there is every reason
to believe that neither energy or
means are lacking to this end.
Fremont and Hosecrans perfectly
understand the task they have un
dertaken, and they make this, for
the time their sole employment.
The present is a favorable moment.
All railroads enterprises are dis
cussed with reference to their fu
ture connections with the Southern
system, and the South itself is
deeply interested in this route to
the Pacific by the 35th parallel.
As a means of opening up the fer
tile regions of Texas of develop
ing the inexhaustible mines of Ari-'
zona of protecting the frontier
it is of incalculable importance to
the United States and of special
value to the South.
The remarkable ease with which
it can be constructed and operated
should be noticed. There are no
heavy grades, no alkali plains, no
sage bush wastes, no snow block
ades, to encounter. The work
need not be impeded for a day at
any season. ood and water
abound, and the route has been so
carefully and repeatedly gone over,
that the work will proceed at a
sure and uniform pace to its com
Domkstic Life. The banes of
domestic life are littleness, falsity,
vulgarity, harshness, scolding, vo
ciferation, and incessant issuimr of
superfluous prohibitions and or
ders, which are regarded as imper
tinent interferences with the gener
al liberty and repose, and are prov
ocations ot rankling or exploding
resentments. The blessed anti
dotes that sweeten and enrich do
mestic life are refinement, high
O 1 - A . . A. - A I 1

all unnecessary commands of dicta
tion, and general allowance of mu
tual freedom. Love makes obedi
ence lighter than liberty. Man
wear's a noble allegiance, not as a
conar, out as a garland. The
Graces are never so lovely as when
seen waiting on the Virtues: and
wncn tney tims dwell together
tney mate a heavenly home. No
attection, save friendship, has any
sure eternity m it. Friendship
