BY ELLEN LOUISA CHANDLER.
(This story is ono .of those pearls we
love to place before our readers. We can
not mention .the publication in which it
first appeared, for some forgetful editor
has failed to make the credit due.)
There were three of us—Kate, Annette,
and myself—fand we Were going into the
old wood to hunt for strawberries. Oh !
it was such j a delightful day in June.—
The birds sarijg till: the lair was fairly vocal
with their melody,-and all the green trees'
nodded their heads in approbation. The
very brook seemed to have caught the
general inspiration,, and danced along
through the meadows, us if keeping time
to a quickstepi of tfije fairies.
Annette Summers acid I had been invi
ted ..to spend i the half holidays with our
schoolmate' Kate Harrington. 1 Deacon
fronted toward tljo south. Behind it
stretched a broad,, and still
farther back yfas a densely wooded accliv-,
ity, famous for flowers and berries in the
geography bf| every child in Ryefield. 11
used ,to love to look at . Deacon Hairing-:
y days," wheixrl had, ndt a single well de
nied iaoUen- bf taste in my enrty
read. I know ho# that" it combined, to
sm eminent‘degred; the elements of the)
jipturpsquo. The Jew rgof, wbieii sloped
■ i wckteara nesrly teethe ground, was gray
with moss.- Xvy crept aboutthe windows,
and-'.oyer ; thefrustip? poroK
climbing roses, hhavy (30^1^)
of triunpvt erwper, :■ v i : 1* 1 "
There was h rudp scatat the
made of the |hltleHdighs of ihe white ’
[indepejTdent in everything.}
biTch, twisted together in fantastic fashion 7
and here grandmother Harrington was
wont to sit with her gray woolen knitting
work. Oh 1 what a treat we used to think
it to spend a half holiday with Kate Har
“ I wish I were you, Kate,” exclaimed
Annette, after we had spent half the long
summer afternoon chasing butterflies, and
arranging a vegetable baby-house, with
hollyhocks for your ladies’ parasols, and
tea-pots manufactured out of veritable
P°PPJ -pods. "I wish I were you, and
then I could be happy all day long, with
nothing to trouble me.”
“You could, could you ?" and Kate’s
cheeks flushed, as she put away from th(jiu
tier heavy bands of black-hair. “ Ypu
that’s all you know about it.
I have a thousand things to vex me.—
There’s Rose, for, instance. Mother ex
pects me to be constantly taking care of
her, and she’s the greatest little torment
you ever saw. By the way, girls, let’s
start after those strawberries in the wood,
now she’s out of sight for a minute, so
she wont tease to go with us !”
We were just about half-way across the
meadow, when we heard a sweet voice cry
. turned round, I remember, and thought
how beautiful was the little creature coin
ing towards us. She was very unlike her
sister Kate. Kate was a brunette, but
the little white robed figure'tripping across
the meadow, had a pale, spiritual face,
and long curls of golden hair filing to
her tiny waist. There was a flhsh on her
cheek, and a lootr of eager, beseeching
interest in her large, blue eyes; and she
stretched her dimpled arms toward us,
and kept crying in her earnestness :
“ Please, girls, wait for Rose/
A look of vexation crossed Kate’s face,
and she called otit in a tone of extreme
u Go back, Ilose.j you’re too little to
come! Go back ! go back !”'
Kate always had a way of being minded,
and the little one put her fingers to her
eyes, and silently turned toward the house.
™ e hurried' on in the direction of the
wood, without giving a single glance back
wuid. I think Kate s conscience reovoach
ed her for her selfishness, and I know my
own pleasure was spoiled for the afternoon.
We found plenty of strawberries, red and
npe among their bed of leaves. There
were little blue-eyed blossoms, too, that
kept reminding me of Rosie, and I was
not sorry when the sunset shadows length
ened, and wc turned to go home. °
We had gone down the hill out of the
wood and crossed several rods of the
meadow-land, when Kate said, 1 iu a horse

j '^ as Kosc. At first we thought she was
dead. Scarcely seemed the faintest breath
to steal from her parted lips, and the pul
sations of her heart were so weak you
coulu scarcely feel them. She was iu a
kind of trance-like sleep. It was some
time before we succeeded iu waking her,
and then her limbs seemed chilled and
stiffened by the subtile dampness of the
meadow-land atmosphere. l She could not
stand. How many times that afternoon
the little darling had begged us to “make
a chair” for her, with our hands, and we
had answered that we couldn’t stop. We
■made one now. She twined her dimpled
arms about our necks, and held on very
tight, but she didn’t speak, except once,
and then she bnly said, “ Ain’t I most big
enough, sister Kate ?” i °
Mrs. . Harrington met us at the door
with a wild look of alarm. “ Good heav
ens, Kate I” she exclaimed ; “ what’s the
matter with Bose ?” And taking her
from our arms, she discovered that her
clothes were almost saturated with mois-
ture. “ Kate, child, why don’t yon
speak ? Has Rose been in the water ?”
“No, ma’am; but she went into the
meadow, and got to sleep, and we found
her there sleeping.”.
_ Oh, there were anxious hearts in Deacon
Harrington’s brown house that night.—
Very tenderly was the suffering little Rose
cradled, on her mother’s breast, but not
puce, did she speak coherently. Her
cheeks burned, and her eyes sparkled with
fever j her dimpled armswero tossed above
her head, and every little while, between
her moans, she would stretch but her hands
towards some imaginary object, and say :
“ Please, sister Kate, isn’t Rose most biff
enough?” / '
; Three days pasted—-days of in cespant
watching and weariness—-and toward even
ing little Rose opened her blue eyes, after
a restless slumber.. She seemed much
better, and the mother glanced hopefully
up to the kind physician bending overber.
' V,l cannot' say she’s better, nadam.~

Kato stood by, Sobbing as If already the

“ P’ease, mamma,” said the little one at
length—am I big enough to go heaven V*
u e8 > darling,” was the tearful answer.
“ Jesus loves little children.”
“ And, mamma, do you s’pose he’ll for
give me for sitting down in the- meadows
to watch Katie, when you told me I
mustn’t stay there ?”
“ Yes, my pet, the good Saviour will
forgive you for anything, if you arc only
sorry; but Rosie doesn’t want to go to
heaven, and leave mother, does she?”
“I heard somebody say, I must go,
when I was asleep, mother; a beautiful
lady, with oh ! such white, shining wings,
and she stretched out her arms to take me,
but I didn’t go. I woke up jus Wo kiss you
and sister once more. ' P’easo kiss-me,
Katie. ’lttle Rose won’t never bo naugh
ty any more up in heaven, and I’ll grow
big before you come, Katie, so X can play

There were tears, sighs, a funeral, and
a little coffin. The rosebud opened its
petals on the bosom of J>sus. The little
earth-flower was “ big enough for heaven.”
