BUrn disappointment! you're my friend,
Although you're hard to bear!
I asked for joy, and in its stead
You've brought me near despair.
I sought for pearls of priceless worth.
And, from your cruel store.
You've given me granite from the rock
And pebblus from the shore.
But, heavy as your touch has been,
I've learned to bear its weight.
And, drawing good from something UI,
I've struggled with my fate.
And when the aony had paired
Beheld, with glad surprise,
That pain, and sorrow, and distress,
Were angels in disguise.
I've learned that granite from the rock,
And lobbies from ths tide,
Slav be tn ployed for useful ends,
, WKrtttBarls have been Rented.
S j, disappointments! do your worst!
And, scorning to complain,
I'll stand unconquered and confess
You've not been sent in vain,

Miss Pandora I'iper, teacher of mu
sic, who bad hard work to keep soul
and body together, but was not unhappy,
becaue, as she BaiJ, she was uever left
without a new bonDct for Easter Sun
day, and one black silk, somehow, al
ways managed to last until she could get
a new one, received a very singular
note which had been handed in at the
door, the landlady's "girl" said, by an
"elderly gentleman."
The epistle was enveloped ia the
cobtiiestand roo.t richly decorated en
velope that could bo purcured for love
or money anywhere. The paper, nearly
as thick as cardboird, was to match.
A coat ijf arms was in the coiner, and
the worctilow were as follows:

like that before in all my life! Fatally

rich I suppose. Poor people cau't af
ford such stationery as this. And a coat
of arms, too! Shoddy, I suppose; but so
that he's respectful, why should I care
for that? He will probably pay wall,
and I've lost Auna Eliza Griggs, by
marriage, j ust as she was beginning to
take variations."
"Nora, I shall be in if a new pupil '
a gentleman calls at three o'clock."
Nora, who liked Miss Piper, who
often gave her little presents, and who
kept on an upper shelf of her closet
seme balsam which she was always
ready to apply to the poor girl's awk
ward fingers, which rere always being
cut, or burnt, pinched, fcave an amiable
grin, and offered to polish up the grate

At the doer, however, lie give her a
dreadful sheet.
"I wish, mum," he reanarked, "to
begin with tunes."
Miss I'iper was a conscientious little
teacher, but she felt that there were
people in this world who must have
their own way; and Mr. Sliger'e Urat
lesson consisted of the "White Cock
ade." He had a very good ear, and was
anxious te learn. From the "White
Cockade" he went en to, "Life Let XT
Cherish, " and poor, guilty Miss Piper,
who felt that the notes had very lit tie
to do with his performance, heat time
and counted.
- Meanwhile - she found, thai; leaving
education out of the question, the man
was very sensible that he was kindly
and amiable. Once, corrected on the
pronunciation of a word, he never be
came a backslider on that werd. How
evevt was he who arranged everything
not his teacher.
As ether lessons were added, the
neglected person set the hours for them;
finally he had six hours a day. All the
pupils were dismissed but one. The
spelling lesson, the lessou in geography,
the lesson in history, followed each
other. All the week days were his.
Poor Miss Piper had no power to say
him cay He paid well, he treated her
with actual reverence; but the last pu
pil went when he elected to copy some
very flat "flower pieces" which Miss
Piper had executed in early youth, .and
ojillthisa lesson io jointing. He bad

Miss Piper had a quarter from a Swiss
For a long time she was alone on
Sunday, and usually went to the Meth
odist church, to whioh she belonged;
but Mr. Sliger soon altered that. He
began by asking her whether they had
"these vespers" of he's at the Cathe
dral on Sunday moruiiig. And when
she instructed him that "vespers" were
in the latter part of the day, he said
he wonld call for her.
Accordingly she went to vespers at
the Cathedral in the afternoon, and af
ter that, regularly three times a day to
different churches.
Meanwhile Miss Piper and Mr. Sliger 1
peered threugh the teleacepe and saw
the rings of Saturn, which Mr. Sliger
supposed to be phenomenal and tempo
rary, aud which were explained by
Miss Pacdora to be fixtures, and then
adjourned to an ice cream saloon of
much elegance.
"This iudeed Is desperate disaipatien,
Miss Pandora said te herself, as she sat
betore the cut-glass goblet on the dam

from the little fountain in the centre in
to the aquarium," aud over the glossy
plants, all. reflected in the loug mirrors.
However, what did it matter? She was
already "talked about." turned out of
her lodgings aa- srsfwoa who had gone
wrong. .She" fcep - ttiis -oieiry
moment to remember when she had pat
an end to all this, by saykig to the neg
lected pupil that nbe could no longer
impart instructions to him.
He was ordering every indigestible
luxury on the bill of fare, the diamond
en his little tin gei flashed like a small
sun, obsequieas waiters bobbing about
behind him. He looked liudly at her
and asked her if she liked this or that.
He was simple as an old baby; as kind as
an old lady; and be was a pleasaut-look
ingman. !
"All over! All over!" she said to her
self. "I might have known what a
wicked world this is, aud how ill it
thinks of innocent things. Why might
I not go on teaching him forever with
eut harm!"
People were coming in from concerts,
from the theatres; tables were filling,
bat theirs, between two columns, bey
ond the fountain,, was very quiet.
The waiters werajine to execute Mr.
Sliger's beheots. ' Suddenly he turned
t j her and "2k a iettar from his pock-

"Miss Piper," he said, "reed (hat."
Miss Pandora opened the missive and
perused it.
It was from a firm of lawyers, speak
ing in plain terms of Mr. St. Leger as a
gentleman and a man of honor and for
tune. "I got 'em to give it to me," he laid,
"to show to you." i
"I did not need it, indeed," said Miss
Pandora, sadly. "And this is the way
your name is really spelt? St. Leger;
it's a beautiful name."
' "It sounds a little curious to me," he
said. "Mother wrote it Sliger. I nev
er knew. But you see I'm all right.

She appeared in Miss Pandora Piper's
apartment at the awful hour of ten
o'clock at night, majestic in her crimp
ing pins, and with- very serious coun
tenance, but she was welcomed in with
a smile bv the little music teacher.
Good evening Miss Grimm," said
she, "haven't had a call from you for a
long while."
"No, Miss Piper you haven't," said
Mrs. Grimm, with much emphasis.
"But you could net expect me to call
after such carrying on." -
"Why, what do you mean, Mrs.
Grimm?" ejaculated Miss Piper.
"Can you ask, Pandora Piper?" an
swered the landlady in her deepest
chest-note. "'The whole neighborhood
is talking about you!"
"About me!" screamed Miss Piper.
"You and that man," answered the
"My pupil, Mr. Sliger," sobbed MisB
Piper fairly in tears.
"Your pupil? Don't tell me!" id
Mrs. Grimm. "Miss Pandora Piper, I

"Oh, oh, oh!" cried Pandora. "Can
you think any harm of me? Why you
could come in at any moment. Nora
is iu and out every now and then. Such
a respectable elderly gentleman, and
such a correct person as I am!"
"It inn't me, Pandora," said Mrs.
Grimm, quite melted, "it's the neigh

ciuircn) nuisuea em. lours ot age
this long while, my dear; but I can't
countenance this. I shall put up the
bill. Oh, oh, Pandora! that it should
come to this!"
Poor Miss Pandora!
As her friend and landlady walked
out ot the door with her bai.dkerchief
to her eves, she stood motionless, as
though turned to a pillar of salt.
She saw just how this repair of neg
lected education must appear to her
small circle of discarded pupils, and
felt a Btrong desire to drown herself or
jump out of the window, or turn on
the gas, or take a box of matches ,n her
tea, and she might actually, it seemed
to her afterwards, have died of mortifi
cation, but that the gang of the front
door, pulled violently at this moment
startled her, aud Nora, running up,
wrapped in a waterproof cloak, for she
had been making preparations to go to
bed, announced:
"Mr. Sliger!'
"He can't come np," said Pandora,
"at this hour of the night."
"No, miss; he asks for you to come
down," said Kara.

that she was going to faint the room

She held out her hand for a glass of
water. Most of it was spilt on the front

which passed her lips relieved her. Then
a sweet soft sense that there was no
more trouble for her in this world, crept
into her heart, and site smiled np at

Contract Labor East.
There was a debate in the Senate
of the United States last . week on
what may, be called a phase of the
Chinese question. - It sprung np on
tne bill prohibiting tbe Importation
of laborers under eontracts made in
foreign countries. The, courts had
for a Ions; time refused to allow
such contracts, for they were en
tered in places beyond jthe jurisdic
tion of the United States and un
der conditions which produced an
unfair competition in the labor
market here. But in (he height of
the war there was a scarcity of la
bor which it was very difficult te
meet. The wage-workers had gone
in immense masses to the front and
there were not enough left behind
to produce the articles needed, not
only for the army, but the country
at large. A bill was j than passed
to allow contracts for labor te be
marla abroad. ETndar it larra num
bers of men were imported for Beef. Pork, Mutton,
workshops and mines. But the
practice is now continued, notwith
standing that there is no scarcity of
labor; on the contrary, there are
said to be 300.000 wage workers
Laborers, especially from South
eastern Europe, where the pay is
not much higher than it is in China,
are being imported in large num
bers. These people gladly bind
themselves to work fur long terms
at fifty cents per day. aud less. Tbe
effect on Pennsylvania, especially,
'has been disastrous in the extreme.
The laberii.g classes there have been
reduced by this competition, in
some eases, to a far; more pinched
condition than the I corresponding
classes in England, France or Ger
