A sweet-faced woman and a sweet-
faced child are wandering among the
shinning- docks of the creat city the
I o - i
woman is plainly dressed, but evidently ;
in her best attire, and there is a touch of
gentility in her finery, in the real lace
collar, relic of better days perhaps, the
pearl ear-rings and the neat gloves. The
child is neatly dressed too, and as she
clasps the woman's hand looks love at
her guardian. But the woman's face is
not at its best now there is an anguish
ed expression upon it, a care-worn look,
and a faint wrinkle upon the pale fore-
he&d that aire her, and lessen the charm
of her features.
She is inquiring of the dock men, of
the stevedores, of the loungers about the
wharves, whether the brig "Good Luck"
has come in. She always receives the
same reply to her eager question, and
that reply is that the brig "Good Luck"
has not come in, but they have too much
humanity to tell her that this same brig
"Good Luck" has been lost a month ago,
dashed on a lee shore and ground to
pieces by the sea, and will never come in
never nevermore !
If they told her, she -shouldn't believe
them, for this woman and her child have
supreme faith feel as sure as God rules
that the brig "Good Luck" will come in,
and come in soon, with cargo and crew,
though they have been asking the same
question, and praying th same prayer,
for many and many a day.
Then she goes across the sti eet and
winds her way amo': the bales, and
boxes, and passing c-im, and through all
the hubbub and buatia of ths wharf, and
climbs a flight of utv.rsi to where the
brig's owners have thair cilice. They are
used to seeing i-.er. Tuey smile sadly
when she enters with the child and look
significantly at one another as much as
to say, "Poor thing ! she's mad. No
wonder no wonder !''
Mad! Yes, she is mad with "nope

band, Caleb Selter, master of the brig

brig, her husband and the father of this
child. God of Heaven, why does he stay -
away from her so long ? k
Is the 'Good Luck' in yet?' she asks
of a clerk.
"Not yet, ma'miu."

the establishment here, now comes from
behind his desk and approaching ' the
woman, says, in a kindly tone :
"Mtb. Selter, sit down; make yonrself
as comfortable as yon .can in a dingy
office like this. Here, little. : come here:
give me a kiss. A bright pretty, little
dear, Mrs. Selter." -
"She looks pale," said the mother.
'She is tired she has been walking too
"Mamma, I don't mind walking to
find father. I'm not tired."
The old gentleman sits down and lifts
the little girl on his knee and kisses her.
She winds her arms about his neck and

it was the Habit or this, nrm to pay a
sort of pension, monthly, to the widows
of captains who were lost in their service.
It was not much of a stipend, being only
half pay, but it was certainly a blessing
in very many cases. Mrs. Selter had al
ways received her husbands money here,
while he was at sea, or it was sent to her
when she was sick or the weather bad.
"Ah, Mr. Tawman, I'm sure the "Good
Luck' will be in to-day 1"
Certainly it will! that's to hinder

He puts the child down and goes over
into the cashier's room. While he is

"Oh! I'm not tired. And I should
like to be here when the brig comes in.
' But I thank you so much, so much."
,- "Here, little one," says the good heart
ed Tawman, "here's .something for you
to buy candies with." ' He puts into her
tiny outstretched palm a bright quarter
of a dollar and laughs at the wonder and
delight of the recipient.
"I'll keep this for my papa."

chair and sinks into slumber in an in

Tawman says quietly to the telegraph
"It's the Mary !''
The schooner is being towed up the
river by a tug. She is making prepara

the wharf. All this time Mrs. Selter is

pausing, a moment, an if propriety and
philanthrophy are struggling for mastery
in his mind :
"No, no, George. Tell Henderson to
send the dinner up into my room there
that's better !" The young man leaves
the room. Then Mr. Tawman enters the
office again and consults the telegraph
"Send this message at once, Mr. Lind-
lay, if you please." He writes something
and the operator clicks it off at once.
It's along message indeed, but the Presi
dent's message itself is not so important,
so interesting, to those whom it concerns.
Then, by the time the message is sent,
the dinner is ready in Mr. Tawman's pri
vate office, where Mrs. Selter partakes of
it, but does not think proper to waken
the w.eery child, that s'ae may eat it also.
Then Mr. Tawman says : "Now, you
