ROCKING THE BOYS TO SLEEP.
I rif me down In the twilight cool
Of b busy summer's day.
And close mjr eyes, and lire again
The time so far away.
When Eddie and James and John were
And the tear to tnr cjes will creep.
For I seem to ait In the oW brown chair,
A-rockin' the boys to sleep.
1 bring John back from a home of wealth,
Where fame ami nwr dwell.
And rfntr and rock him to weep once
More bamr than toscne can tell.
I brave the storms on a shorele sea
Where tempest and surges sweep,
"And James is here and I rock again
"My wandcrius boy" to sleep.
I bnlld a stair to the heavens tall,
And reach In its sweet domaiu
For little Eddie and bring him back
To my lonely home again;
My throbbing heart Is heavy now
With a Teaming strong anil deep.
As I smooth the curls of tnr only babe
And rock biui once more to sleep.
They say' the old chair Is useless now,
'Tis creaking, and dull witb age.
And mast be forever put aside,
Like a well learned, worn-oat page.
Bat the old brown chair sings a song to
Aa It whispers of other years.
And it tells of the roughened places
And 'murmurs of childish tears. .
Yes, the old chair tells In an undertone.
In a voice so creaking and old.
Of the comfort it gave through bummer's
' As well 4s In winter's cold:
How those little dependent lives were
Through their childish sorrowr deep.
As.it did its host-to ease each paiu.
While rocking the boys to sleep.

Tom Itowen rose to his feet. Though
Ills eyes glowed peculiarly, though his

"Of course, Miss Kent, you are safe

While ho walked ho wns looking

that Itowen followed. He went faster

nearly running to keep him In sight.
Suddenly tbe dog leaped and scram

ter course, and when Itowen came to
tbe edge and looked down be uttered
an exclamation of alarm and surprise
and then swung himself down from a
birch tree and fell rather than walked
to a place where lay a figure whose
blue dress and bright scarf were fam
iliar to his eyes.
"Myra!" be cried, as be flung himself
down by her.
All bis love and agony were In that
word. He had feared to llnd her
senseless, dead, but she looked at blm,
and a faint smile came to her white
lips. As she met his eyes, as the tire
In them poured down iiou her, a tinge
of color came Into ber face.
"I think most of my ribs are broken.
and perhaps tbe rest of my bones,"
she said, with an effort at speaking as
lightly as ber. words sounded. "But
I've found my bracelet."
As she spoke the last words her face
turned deathly white, and she sank
still further back in unconsciousness.
A quarter of an hour later, when life
returned to her, she fouud herself sup
ported in Itowen's arms, aud before she
opened ber eyes she felt a pair of trem
bling .Hps pressed passlouatily up.n
"Forgive me! Forgive me!" murmur
ed Itowen. "I was wild I thought you
dead! May you never suffer as I have."
She tried to withdraw herself, but he

There was something In her face that j
emboldened mm, that made bis hopes
