Yes, but for ’a that there will be servant lassies in •heaven just as well as braw folk. The poor wi’re never despised by Him when He was on earth. Heigho! I havena written half a dozen lines o’ my story yet, and I’m sadly con scious that I’ve made blunders already. I mpan to write it a' in English, and if a bit Scotch wordio does tumble in noo and again I’m sure you’ll forgie me. When I warm to my work I’ll get better on. This is the way wi’ a’ Scotch folk; when no excited it's their own broad Doric they speak, but my conscience, if you once put up their birse it's as fine sounding English they'll speak as any southener that ever stepped in shoe leather. My name is Jeannie, Jeannie McLean, that’s it a’ tliegither, or complete as I ought to say. From far, far north the Tweed I come, ay, and north the Dee as well. As far west as the train can pene trate among the Donside hills, on a bon nie braehead, among bonnie green knolls, among woods o’ dark waving fir and spruce, lighted up here and there wi’ the tender green of the feathery larch, and begirt wi’ bands o’ yellow broom and gowden furze, there stood my father's humble cot. And every night of my happy young life I used to be lulled to sleep by a sound like waves breaking on a shingly beach; for, if it wasn’t the wind whispering and moaning through the trees, it was the incessant hurtle o’ the Don rushing on over the pebbles and bowlders. So near were we to the river that dear Johnnie could throw a stone right over.it. A strong, strong arm had Johnnie. Johnnie was my only brother, and I never had a sister. My mother died when Johnnie and I were so young that neither of us could rememlier her, and Grannie kept my father’s house. Dear auld Grannie, with her clear caller, canty face, and her busy, happy ways, it is years ago since she has gone to her long home in the auld kirk yard. She aye had a pleasant smile for Johnnie and me, and used to tell us old world stories in the long forenights ’o winter. Imagine us, if you can, gathered round that Scottish country fireside, a great fire of peats and wood is blazing and crackling on the hearth—there is no other light. At one corner sits my father in an easy chair, his day's toil is past and his pipe is alight; at the other is auld Grannie, «nd click, click, click, click, go her knit ting wires as she tells her tale, Johnnie and I complete the circle; our eyes are riveted on Grannie’s face. The smoke goes curling up the wide chimney, the blaze sometimes following yards high, the wind without is roaring and whist ling round the house, shaking doors and dindling windows; but it makes us feel aW the snugger within. I just creep closer to Johnnie, lean my head on liis shoulder, and listen. By and by Grannie stops speaking, and for a while the wind has it all its own way: then my father rises solemnly and puts his pipe away in the wa'-hole. “Bairns, let us worship God,” he says. Grannie lights the black oil lamp, with its dried rush wicks, and father takes the Book. He reads a chapter, then, to the half mournful notes of some such tune as Martyrdom, we sing, perhaps, “The Lord’s My Shepherd.” There was always plenty to do, and Jolinnie and I were never sorry when Sabbath came. Sabbath and a long walk to the wee bit kirk on the hill head, where in earnest and impressive voice our good minister would point the way to happier spheres; he never failed to breathe words of comfort for the weary, consola tion for the bereaved, and hopes of future joy for all. Never a Sunday passed that Johnnie and I did not linger behind, till aU the other kirk folk had passed away out and homewards, then we would go quietly round and visit mother’s grave. This was not all sentiment, both of us loved mother, though we hardly remembered seeing her. But her mortal remains were there in that auld kirkyard, and they would rise again, such was our simple faith; and we never looked upon mother as dead, but as a saint in heaven, She could see us. we thought, nay. might even be permitted to watch over us, and lovingly guard and befriend us in trial and in danger. She saw us each Sab bath, then, as we bent low and touched the grassv knoll and laid thereon our of ferings of flowers. Humble enough these might be. but in spring there were the sweet scented yellow primrose and sprigs o' crimson may, in summer tliere were alwavs rich buttercups and nch ox- eved daisies, and a hundred wild flowers from hedgerow and copse; even winter brought its garlands of red rowansand its evergreens, so all the year round mother s grave never wanted beauty.

What though the kirk itself was steepleless, the bell devoid of mudlc, the grass long and green on the graves, and after rain look ing as though it had been combed down; what though the tombstones were gray and lichen clad, and leant in everydirec- tion except the right one—mother's grave was there! You English maids may laugh at me, but all! you little ken how dearly we Scotch mountaineers love our wild I homes; besides, you know—I’m only a simple servant lassie. Our Johnnie could play tho fiddle so sweetly. It was the merry airs auld Grannie liked the best, but there was one thing that Johnnie used to play and sing that never failed to bring tho tears to my eyes at least; though somehow it was a sweet kind of melancholy it inspired, and neither grief nor melancholy ever injures the heart if tears can flow. Had I any other companions except Johnnie? Yes, a neighbor lassie would sometimes drop in, and—well, why should I deny it, sometimes a neighbor laddie—why shouldn't a simple Scotch lassie like me have a bit sweetheart? What for no? But it was only on Sunday evenings in the sweet summer time that Jamie and I used to take a lonely walk. And where did we walk, think you? Why, down the line. You see in the far north of dear auld Scotland trains don’t run on the Sabbath day, and the line is the favor ite promenade. Green, feathery larch trees bounded the banks all along, and the banks themselves were painted with wild Howers in tne sweetest colors you could imagine—patches of crimson clover, patches of white clover, beds of orange trnfoils. lieils of bluest speedwell, anil tall red ragged robins everywhere. Then there was the hum of the bees, ds they bummed from flower to flower, the sweet perfume of the clover and the wild, glad notes of the chafiie near his nest in the larc tree. And—yes, and Jamie’s voice, sweeter to me than all. Did I love Jamie? I dinna ken. Jamie never what you might call made love to me, but I dare say I did like him a wee bit. Bonnie black hair had Jamie, blue, blue ecn. rosy dimpled cheeks, a cockit lionnet wi’ long strings that fluttered o'er his liack and shoulders, and such a winsome smile! No, he never made love like, but he would talk for an hour at a time about his horses and kye, and I used just to look and laugh and listen. You may be think I'm dwelling too long on my younger days and our happy life at the little farm on the braehead— but the rest of my story is all so sad. I’m sure enough that neither Johnnis nor I ever gave a thought for to-morrow. In this respect we fulfilled the Scriptures right enough. It never struck us that our present life would not last till we closed our eyes for aye and went to sleep in the mools. But one wet, rough winter’s evening, with the wind moaning in the chimnr y and the cold snow anil sleet tearing over the hills and through the woods, father came homo looking wan and queer. No, no, I cannot dwell on this. That night ho took to Iris lied, and in spite of lhe doctor's attention, in spite of the kind ness of an English lady who was dwell ing at the big house, he slipt quietly away one night and joined our motile in heaven. What a change! The funeral past and a broken up home. Everything except the old eiglit-day clock, which Grannie wouldn’t part with, sold by roup, Gran nie herself dwelling in a little hut by the hillside, and Jolinnie a soldier in the gal lant Forty-twa. And right handsome did lie look in his Highland dress, with his brawny legs and his bonnet and plumes. And I—a simple servant lassie. For the kind English lady had taken quite a fancy to me and I was bound for the south as her maid. As the train rolled away from the station, as I lost sight > f the ** oods, and hills and bonnie braes, what could I do but lean liack in a comer of the carriage and cry—lassie like. Poor Jamie, too! Grief does not break young hearts, and in my new home at Southsea, everything was very new indeed, and my heart leapt up one day with a nameless joy wh«-n 1 heard that the Forty-second was coming to Portsmouth. My mistress was kindness itself, and consideration, too. She was a lady, though not rich, and Im sure would have bitten her tongue at any time rather tlian say a single word to wound the feelings or hurt the heart of a simple ser vant lassie. Ah! would that all mis tresses were the same! She never hin dered me from going out. and, indeed, often suggested it. And so, many were the walks Johnnie and I hail on the ramparts, and many a talk of the dear old times that even now seemed so far away. And my mistress had always a kind word and a smile for me, and talked so naturally and so encouragingly that st any time I believe I would have laid down my life to save hers. After a few months of Portsmouth life my mistress and I started to spend a few weeks in France. Johnnie saw us off. and I think I see the handsome, manly boy yet, with the sunny smile on his sunburnt face, in the dark tartan kilt and white spats, standing there on the station waving us good by with his bonnet and plumes. We were two months away, but re turned at last, and the very next morn ing I went to see for Johnnie. I was rounding the corner of a street, •when the slow, half muffled sound of drums fell sn mv ear, and presently I could hear the music itself. It was a dirge, a coronach, played by the pipers. It was no ordinary dead march. It was t he grand old hymn, Johnnie's song and mine: To-Kirk rsrd. To every word there was a stroke of the drum and a step of the men. And yonder is the coflin and the bonnet and feathers. “Who is—d—d—dead?” I cried, clutching the arm of a soldier who stood near me. He must have seen I was choking. He put one arm round my waist kindly as he replied : “Poor Jack McLean, my lass. Are you his sweetheart?” I remember nothing more for weeks, for all this time I lay raving with brain fever. ****** A year had passed away and a cliange had come over my situation in life. For my dear, kind mistress was obliged to give up house and go abroad, and I was en gaged as general servant to a lady in Portsmouth. Now I was to know what indeed it meant to bo a simple servant lassie under a thoughtless and unkind mistress. Per haps slie did not really mean to be un kind, perhaps she could not help it. I be lieve that, hard though her lieart un doubtedly was, she would often have felt for me could she but have known how her words used to burn into my feelings. I’m sure I tried to please her. I’m sure I did what I could anil as well as I couid, but my whole life soon becamo a burden to me. I used to go to my room and. don’t laugh, cry and pray. That helped me some—don’t forget I'm but a simple Scottish lassie. Did my mistress scold? No. not down right. She nagged. Oh! that worrying, nerve breaking nagging, how much more mean it is than any scolding! When mistress first asked niv name and I told her “Je'nnie,” “I shall call you Ami,” she replied. “I call all my servants Ann.” I'm sure master felt sorry for me, but he dared Bay nothing. I believe he was as much afraid of her as I was, though a kindly hearted gentleman he was. He would come in to dinner happy li»king and singing, and at table begin to talk and laugh with his pretty pets of chil dren. Then mistress would begin to nag at me as I laid tho dinner. And poor master's face would fall at once. There would be no more talking or laughing with tiie children after that. He would hurriedly and silently swallow a few moutlifuls, then, making some excuse about work to finish, disappear. But the room never was dusted enough to pl 'use mistress, the tiro never burned brightly enough, the things were never properly put on the table. I used to dread so lying too late of a morning that ray night’s lest yas all one painful, confused dream. I would start may lie at 3 and look at the watch again and again at 4, and if I did this I dreaded to fall asleep again. I would lie and read for an hour or two, then go down to the cold kitchen among the beetles and struggle for another hour with wet sticks and damp coals before I got the fire to light. Was it any wonder I got thin and worn ;«id so nervous that my mistress’ voice suddenly calling "Ann” felt like a red hot knife jerked into my heart? I now come to the turning ¡»int of my somewhat sail history, which would never have been written hail I not thought this simple narrative might move some mistresses to be a little more con siderate of the feelings of their servants. What was my fate to be. I often asked that question of myself, lassie like. Would Jamie be my fate? Though I know ho liked me, in his letters he never breathed a word of love, but al ways told me about auld Grannie and the eight day clock and about his horses and kye. I had only one friend now in the world. And he—I feel sure you will laugh—was the brewer’s drayman. When he called for an empty cask or to deposit a full one in the cellar, he always nad a gentle word and a smile for me. He was a jolly looking young man with a handsome face, a burly form, and an apjon big enough for a bathing tent. And if you’d only seen him pitch the great casks about—why John was strong enough to lift a cow. One day mistress had been more tank- ersome than ever, and my eyes were red with weeping. John noticed it, and talked ever so kindly, and I told him all, and from that day for months I took to telling John all, and he always had a word of comfort for me. Is it any won der that my heart warmed to him? I used to light him down to the dark cellar, and it was down there wo used to hold our little confabs. But I’ll never forget tho morning John asked me to become his wife. The tallow candle barely dispelled the gloom of that damp, ftirk cellar, and the daylight streaming in above us from a grating, fought with the gloom and was swallowed up. “Which I've loved you for a long time,” said John, “though I dursn't summon up coinage to speak my mind. But I have the prettiest little cottage anil garden in the houtskirts as ever ye seed. And it only wants a mistrins, Jeannie, Which it'll be your sweet self and nobbut else.” I was glad the cellar was so dark, so he couldn't see my face; but next mo ment I was pressed close to John's big apron, and it did smell of malt and hops BO. Yes, it is o sweet. wee cottage, and bonnie do the roses look twining round the porch in summer, and John is the dearest and best of husbands. Yes, I'm happy, and I’ve almost forgotten that ever I was a simple servant lassie.

THE HOARDED WEALTH OF INDIA. A Flatboat Load of Contrabands Wait How the Fast Indian Turns Everything ing to Towed to Freedom. As we returned down the Yazoo, at every possible point where lie river could be reached there were throngs of negro families waiting to be taken away. Many of them had flat boats in which they were already embarked, ready to fasten a line to the returning Federal boats and be towed down the river and to freedom. I rumember one instanco connected with this liegira that was somewhat out of the usual course of events. At one point where the Silver Wave halted there was an immense encampment of negroes with their scanty furniture wait ing for removal. Attached to the shore was a large flatboat, which lay just at the stern of the steamer. I happened to be lounging in that portion of the boat, and was attracted by the character of the contents of the flatboat. There were at least twenty colored people in it, of all ages and both sexes. In the stern sat a venerable African, who at once attracted my attention. He had a heavy beard and very thick hair, which, with his dense eyebrows, were as white as wool. There was something noble and impres sive in his face and ¡xisition, and interest in him was increased as I saw that he was sightless. He was grand as he sat there; grand in his years, which must have been close to a century; grand in tho immobility of his countenance, the repose of his position, iu his helpless blindness, and in a perceptible expression of patience and hope that characterized his features. The other people in tiie boat were prob ably his descendants. There was a white headed woman who was his daughter, then a stalwart man and a woman who must have been his grandchildren, and then a host of children of all ages from 20 down to a little pickaninny lying on its liack that sucked its thumb, kicked up its heels anil gazed witli its black, Ix’ad- like eyes into vacancy. They were all chattering, laughing, screaming in the exuberance of their delight. Freedom was before them and tiie world was ablaze with the glory of antici|>ation. ♦dy the patriarch was silent; to him there perhaps mingled with tho hoj» of tho future a recollection of tiie old home and the old life. The deep grown roots of his existence could not tie easily ex tracted from the soil of the south, and yet there wax a glow on his face such as must have come over the faces of the wandering trilies as they xtixxl on Nel» and their weary eves took in tin1 spread ing fields and the fertile plains of tiie promised’land. A line was dropptxl from the deck of the steamer to the tlatlxiat and made fast. The next moment the wheel began to re volve. It threw back waves which en- velo|xxl the tlatlxiat, and then, as the speed increased, the flat bow of tho latter was drawn under, and the entire Ixiat with all its human freight, its infancy, its years, its hopes, disap[»ared under the greenish waters of the Yazoo. As far as I could see the locality I watched for some sign of the engulfixl unfortu nates, but not even a rag, a fragment of any kind, came to the surfaco. Tiie cruel waters held them fast, and not even a ripple dixturlied the placid surface ubove their place of disappearance. Nothing that I saw during the war shocked me as did thia occurrence. Ri’s- cue was impossible; tiie boat did noteven stop. It steamed swiftly away, and I felt in my heart that another and hum bler Moses hud died at the moment of an ticipated deliverance.—-“PoHuto” in Chi cago Times. Fngllxli rr<»r« *HHlonnl Entertainers. It is stated on what seems good au thority tlHit tiie festivities of the present season will be fostered by a new kind of entertainer. From certain firms from whom parlor wizards, drawing room Punch and Judys, etc., can lx1 hired, it would seem that professional funny men, warranted to keep’ any moderately festive table in a roar, can be securixl for so much a night. These “funny men” will mix with guests, and are guaranteed not only to be primed with all the newest funny stories anil topical jokes, but also to be well up in impromptu efforts of an amusing kind. For instance there are no less than seventeen assorted tricks which can lie performed by them while actually sitting at a table without any apparatus, and with the simple nid of an orange, a wine j lass, a serviette, and a walnut shell. For a “funny man," with ventriloqnal ability the price |x-r evening is five shillings more than for one who does not go beyond "imitations of con temporary actors, "in a mimetic dime tion. In cases where it may be desired that this hired entertainer shinild ¡xiax ax a facetious relative of th«1 host and hosti-xx it is suggextixl that a “preliminary inter view should be arranged between him and the heads of the family whose rela tive lie is supposed to be,” with a view, doubtless, to tiie maintenance of his part later on.—Ixindon Figaro. He lko»»e»ses into Jewelry. Never during its existence lias India been so rich in jewelry as now. Tho people are always adding to their stock. Savings from nearly all sources are dis posed of in this way, and these savings are being constantly made—often at the exp mse of clothing, sometimes at the ex pense of greater necessaries of life. The making and the storing away of wealth in this form is the national pe culiarity of this country. It is indulged in by all classes of natives. Jewelry is regarded as the most staple kind of wealth, and fortunes are never counted without estimating tho value of tho stock of jewelry. It can always be pledged or disixised of. The market for its sale is never closed anil never depressed. The most ignorant native who wishes to sell a piece of jewelry knows its market value quite well. He can scarcely be cheated. Jewelry forms tiie greatest factor in matrimony. The most lowly bride has her stridhan, which is often equal in value to five years’ income of the bridegroom. There is often a scarcity of clothing, sometimes a scarcity of cooking pots, generally not a particle of furniture, but nearly always a stock of jewelry. The wife that has no jewelry ¡xissesses nothing else; she cannot be robbed. The family that does not ¡xissess jewelry is alieolutely indigent. One of the greatest boasts of the jewelry owner is that his hoards cannot lie taxed. A man may own jewelry valued at a lakh of rujxies and pay no income tax. This is a source of great satisfaction. Jewelry yields no recurring income, but it is prized more than government ¡viper. “If it never increases it never diminishes, ” is a na tional saying, common among men and women alike. No native marriage, except among the most impoverished, takes place without a transfer of jewelry, and very frequently of new jewelry. So great in value is the now jewelry that is introduced into new families by marriage, that wo dare not estimate it. the amount would be bo fab ulous. Truly the investment of wealth in jewelry in India is the greatest and most remarkable institution in the coun try. Every other investment sinks into insignificance beside it. Under no native prince or rajah of former times has jewelry accumulated as it has accumulated under the British government in British India. For a cen tury past the sacking of towns has been unknown; the plunder of individuals has been greatly restrained, and wealth in the form of jewelry has accumulated. One-half of the people of India are jewelry owners. It is only when the day of taking stock of tho family jewelry comes round, such as tho occasion of a wedding or a great gala day, that a stranger can form the slightest concep tion of the amount of wealth in the fam ily in the form of jewelry. Amazement at once strikes him as he for the iiprt time is ¡x-rmitted to see the amount of accumulated wealth. The inventory day is, par excellence, the women's day. Gathered round the iron safes, the cash l»xes, the metallio Ixixes, the neatly carved wixxlen boxes, tho delight of the vrnnrn is observed in tlieir eyes as each pair of golden brace lets studded with ¡icarls; each pair of diamond, or emerald, or sapphire ear rings. each nixie ring with large pearls, massive gold chains and a large number of rings; expensively and even extrava gantly gemmed, are banded round t'sa family circle for admiration. And great is the family delight.—Advocate of India. To Prevent Bednores.
