There were watchers by the bedside,
And fciU. cj in tho room;
Ther? was morning light- and shadow,
From a night of troubled gloom;
There were hearts akin to breaking;
There were 3ouls, bowed down with grief;
There wra tirhikiugs tlrep from sorrow's cup
In moments all too brief.
There were fttrcwulls sad and tender,
In whispers soft and low;
There were waitings for the Messengsr
Of measured st-;ps and slow;
There were earthly warfares ending,
There was ecastj from worldly stnfe;
There were mortals made immortal,
There was death and endless life.
There were watchers by the bedside,
Whose forms we might not see;
There were spirit voices chanting
In sweetest melody,
There was Morning light unbreaking
Into Everlasting Day,
When the watchers and our dear ones
Went up the heavenly way.

"The house is sold," cried Minnie
Morrison, excitedly, bursting in, like a
thunderbolt of woe, upon hsr pale, fair
mother's anxious musing. - "That hate
ful old Mr. Grimf orm bid against us
nol ody e!e would have beefl cruel
and the house is his."
Mrs. Morrison never answered a
word. This sudden blow, striking at,
and utterly destroying a cherished hope,
was too much for her. . She pazed for a
nisment into her daughter' flushed, in
dignant face, and theu dropped her
head uuen two tremulous wh't' Viands,
with' a low cry of misery.
In an instant Minnie was on her
knees before her, suothmg, expostulat
ing, caressing and comforting, all in a
"After all, a bouse is but a house,
mamma darling; it isn't as if we had
lost each other, you and I; and theugh
you are o much attached to this one,
and it would have been very pleasant
indeed to have it for our owa, we will
get just as fond of another home in
time, you know. I'lease don't fret tor
it, for my snUe."
The mother looked up sorrowfully.
She drew the fiirl'3 fair head close to
her breast and kissed her sweet lips
"It is for yeur sake that I grie-ye, my
dearest; I should care but little it only
my own interests were at stake. But
we are known in this place and can
make a living. The few hundreds
which your poor father left, and which
I have kept for you, would have been
well invested in the purchase f this
house, which would then have been ourg
beyond all risk. And this is such an
out-of-the-way place, and no neighbor
would have bid against us; it is the
most cruel disappointment that this
rich man to whom our peer house can
be nothing should have taken it out ot
our hands. I .vender I wonder did he

Some months ago the people of Pen
dleton were said to be opposed to the
Indians' agreeing to the terms of the
Slater bill. It is now rumored that this
apposition has been withdrawn with the
'inderstanding that the Indians select
their laud3 ic severalty from the eastern
part of the reservation, leaving the land
near I'cadictou tor white settlement.
It is when evil doing is mn,ue some
what respectable by custom that it is
most insidious in its encroaches upon
good morality, and is the most difficult
to combat. A great advance is always
made when wrongdoing is made disrep
utable, when the powerful police of
public opinion drives it out of sioht. It
is cause for congratulation when it is
ohlitred to scree: itself from publicity,
to skulk in back room?, and sneak in at
side doors and rear alleys, when it is
made to feel that it is disreputable.
Some people pretend to hold a hypo
crite in holy honor. They pretend
further that they have more respect for
the man who is bad "open and above
hoard" than for a hypocrite. Perhaps
they toryet that a man is responsible
tor his appearance and his inilueuce up
on others as well as for his overt acts.
The man who does wrong and is so
shamed of it as to try and hide it from
ihr- public faze, is not as bad a man for
sociuy as the one who does the same
wrong and spealy glories in his shame.

Some people are sill
ine that it is a mark of superiority to
sneer at the pleasures and pastimes of
small towns, and to intimate iu a super
cilious kiud of a way that their esthet
ic souli! are piuii-g avav fur want of '
' more relincd and intellectual sustea-
ance. It a small town is dull an! unin
j taresting, it is simply because its people
are dull and uninteresting, and of all
toe on!!, disagreeable and uninteresting
people in a place, those who fold their
lazy hands and whine about the lack ot
culture and appropriate mental recrea

pondering in mute bewilderment her

Minnie blushed crimson. Harry
spoke up bravely, '
Miss Minnie and I are engaged, sir."
Ah, indeed! The task I have set you
thouU be a labor of love, then. Set
about it at once. Do vou love hin; trur
ly, Minnie?" he questioned, when Harry
had left the room. .
"Indeed I do," she answered honestly.
"And if some older, wealthier lover
tempted you with gold, do you think
you could be true to love?"
"Love is far better than gold, I think,'
she answered simply. J. . -
"So thought not your mother when
:he was betrothed to me," he muttered
bitterly as he turned away. Then
aloud: "Well, child, I wish you all
tke happiness that a constant love de
serves. ATo such as it too often receives,
little Minnie. I have been constant to
one love all my lite, and the wages of
my fidelity have been loneliness and
paia. Ah, here comes Harry. Give
this paper to your mother from me, and
say to her, 'the past is past!'"
"The past is past, indeed," said Mrs.
Morrison, a few hours later as she stood
in her lover's presence again for the first
time in twenty years. "But sutler the
present to explain it, Horace, suffer tho
future to atone. My father was oa the
verge of ruin, could L deny him when
he appealed to me? You were poor,
absent; bankruptcy, disgrace, perhaps
a prison, threatened the father I so
loved. Yet I wrote to you explaining
my cruel pasition, aud imploring you
to forgive the falsehood to which I was
compelled " '
"I never received one line," he cried,
approaching her far the first time and
taking her trembling hands. "Kot
"I know that well," she sighed, "al
though I never learnt it till long alter

and concluded, with a broken heart,
that you refused rae even your for

died two years ago that I knew he
had suppressed my letter."
She put her hand upon his lips as she
spoke.saying softly :
"Pardon him."
He caught that still beautiful hand
and kissed it again and again.
"Oh, how I have mourned for yen,
my lost love, my false love, as I be
lieved. How I have cursed your infi
delity. But I never wished you harm
or did you wrong, dear; my love was
so did I, and before midnight we were
both solid, with all the other doctors
and lawyers in town hanging around
with nothing to do.
'Along about 2 o'clock in the morn
ing we both got to our room and re.
ported progress. lie had dressed the
man's wounds and was to call a jam in
the morning, and I had seen the prison
er, had a long interview with him and
his friends, planned out a very brilliant
line of defense, and ' spent three bit
treating the deputy sheriffs.' The Doc
reported that the wounded, man seemed
to have money , wd i reported that the
prnron'er'anA his crovviT hud agreed that
if I got him clear I waa to hare $250.
We went to bed confident that we had
made a good beginning The next
morning the Doc was up some time be
fore me, because he was a little anxious
about his patient, and, as he was leav
ing the room, he said:
"I'll be back after a little. Wait
half an hour or so, and I will ga to
breakfast with you."
"I got up after a while, and, as he
had not returned, I sat down and began
mapping out on paper the case of my
client. 1 had just got well into the
business when I looked up, and there
stood the Doe.
"The man's gone!" he gasped, look
ing vacantly around.
"Gone where?" says I.
"Don't kow," he said. "Some of
the boys say he's dead and buried, and
ethers say he's gone to Dead wood. I
couldn't find any trace of him or the
gang. 1 saw your client, though.
"Where 'bouts?" says I.
"Down hetfc, hanging to an awning.'1
"Jerusalem!" says I, aud I grabbed
my hat and walked down the street.
Sure enough, there was my man hang
ing dead to an awning. I felt of his
pulse and of his pockets, but didn't get
auytbiag. Kyerybedy had disappeared
from the town for the time being, and I
went back to our rooms. We talked
the matter over long and earnestly, and
after we had looked at the thing in all
its bearings we cane to the conclusion
that young men had no chance in that
town, and left."

She was looking into his eyes, but
she drew back suddenly, a blush and a
smile together swept over her face.

caught her to his breast.
She lay there happily.

Notwithstanding the great number of
public and private schools and the at
tention that is supposed to be paid to
all c iiicational subjects, it is a matter of
astonishaient that we have so tew good
readers. Even anions those whose bus
iness necessitates much reading aloud,
clergymen and lawyers for instance,
good readers are very rare. To read
well the pronunciation mast be perfect,
the enunciation clear and the articula
tion distinct. The two latter are apt to
be neglected until it is too late to reme-
orated Biisiness i dy the defect without great difficulty.
That reading which clearly conveys to
the listener the meaning of the author,
that has no peculiarities to divert the
attention from the subject matter, must
be pronounced good. Such plain read
ing precludes much of what may be
termed "style" which is io frequently
affected, to the detriment cf conveying
the sons intended. Reading should
be as natural as possible. In view of
tiou ef his outward as well as internal
hideousness, that when her lever as
sured her that his employer was rather
handsome than otherwise, she consid
ered the statement a mero satirical re
"Of course he's as ugly as hateful,"
she aisured herself.
So, when she canie into his presence
at last, she was rather taken by sur
prise. Iron-gray hair and a steru ex
pression made him, perhaps, somewhat
formidable, but iu the still handsome
features and commanding figure there
was nothing that fulfilled the
of his name.
She was a little embarrassed, when
he civilly inquired her business, as to
how she should besrin, but determined
very quickly to explain te him the plain
facts of the case, which she accordingly
did, ending with the question:
Did you ever know my mother? And,
if so, how has she ever wronged you,
that you should hate her so?"
A Lawyer and Doctor as Partners.
An old lawyer and a youag doctor,
the former with a very red nose and
the latter with only a suspicion of a
moustache, had been hunting-together
for about two years through eastern
miniug town3, and had been unable to
fir-J a place where the chances of sue
cess seemed good. The lawyer called
the younn man Doc. and Doc called
the old man Judge. Among their ex
periences they relate the following:
"The first towu we struck," the Judge
j said, "was Lead City, up in the Black
Hills, aud as there were only three er
four lawyers aad doctors there we
thought we had hit it right the first
