'Is that a rainn ye'd waste the whole of

und he trembled at the idea of his substance
falling into Mich hands.

and it's time I was giving over tnulo and

with sympathy, Ho then gave tho dairy
farm and the hill to Shanius, and tho mead
ows to Guillaum. Thereupon these two
vied with each other in expressions of love
and gratitude. Hut Garret said never a word;
and thN, coupled with his behavior about
the hundred pounds, so maddened tho old
man that ho gave Gnrret's portion, namely,
tho home and the homo farm, to his elder
brothers to holtl in commun. Garret ho dis
inherited on Ihe spot,and in due form. That
is to fay, lie did not overlook him nor pass
him by ; but even as spiteful testators used
to leave the disinherited one a shilling, that

what that meant, lie shouldered tho bag

sad heart, but a silent tongue. His dog,
Lurcher, was for following him.but he drovo
him back with a stone.
On the strength of tho new arrangement,
Guillaum and Shamus married directly, and
brought their wives home, for it was a largo
hoiie, and room for all. Hut the old farmer
was not contented to bo quite a cipher, and
he kept finding fault with this and that

Shamus defied his father openly belore all

Tlio old farmer replied,with sudden digni

'What good was your giving it?' said
Guillaum ; "we get no comfort of it while
you are in theliouo.'
'Do you talk that way to mo?' said tho
father, deeply grieved. 'If it was poor Gar

'Much thanks the poor boy over got from

Hut they were all young and of one mind,
and they turned him out nnd barred the

and lain, till he got on the leesldo of a stone
wall, and there he stopped and asked him.

Presently something cold and smooth poked
ngainst his hand ; it was a largo dog that
had followed unobserved till he stopped, lly
n whito mark on ills breast he saw it was
Lurcher, Garret's dog.'
Ah, said the poor old wanderer, 'you ara
not so wiso a dog as I thought, to follow nip.
When he spoko to the dog, the dog (ondled
him. Then ho burst out sobbing and crying
"Ah, Luclicr I Garret was not wiso either ;
but he niver would have turned mo to the
door, this bitter nlght,nor even thee.' And so
ho moaned and lamented. IlutLueher pulled
his coat.and by movements conveyed to him
that he should notstay there all night; so then
he crept on and knocked at more than one
door, but did not obtain admittance, it was
so tempestuous, At last ho lay down ex
hausted on some straw in tho corner of an
out-house ; but Lurcher lay close to him,
and it is probably the warmth of tho dog
raved his life, that night.
Next day, the wind anil rain abated, but
this aged man had other ills to fight ngainst
besides winter and rough weather. The
sense of his sons' ingratitude and Ids own
folly drovo him almost mad. Sometimes ho
would curse nnd thirst for vengeance, some
limes lie would shed tears that seemed to
scald his withered cheeks. He got into an
other country, and begged from door to door.
As for Lurcher, ho did not beg ; he ued to
disappear, often for an hour at a time, but
always returned, and often with a rabbit or
even a hare in hi mouth. Sometimes tho
friends exchanged them for a gallon of meal
sometimes they misted them in the woods

Cold, hungry, houseless, and distracted with
grief at what he had been and now was, na
ture gavo way at last, and, unable to outlasi
tho weary, bitter night, ho lost his senses
just before dawn, ami lay motionless on the
hard road. .
The chances were ho must die; hut just
at Death s door his luck turned.
Lurcher put his feet over him and his
chin upon his breast tu guard him.as he had
often guarded Garret's coat, and that kept a
little warmth in his heart ; and at the very
lawn of day tho door of a farm-house open

They laid him between hot blankets, and
when ho camo to a bit, gave him warm
drink, and at last a good meal. Ho recov

When ho was quite comfortable, and not
before, they asked his name.
'Ah I don't ask mo that,' said he, piteous
ly, ' It's a bad name I have, and it Used to
be a good, one, too. Don't ask me, or may
bo yo'll put mo out, as tho others did, for

other honest men's doors through the vil

So tho farmer was kindly, and said, 'Never
mind your name, fill your belly.'
Hut by and by the man went out into tho
yard, and then the wife could not restrain
her curiosity. 'Why, good man,' said she,
Mire you are too decent a man to be asham
ed of your name.'
I'm too decent not to bo 'ashamed of it,'
said lirian. 'Hut you are right; an honest
man should tell his name though they druv

'Ay, madam ; I'm all that's left of him.'
'Have you a son called Garret?'
'I had, then.'
The woman spoko no nioro to-hini, but
ran screaming to tho door: 'Here, Tom!
Tom ! como here I' cried she ; 'Tom I Tom '
As Lurcher, a very sympathetic dog, flew to
tho door and yelled and barked fiercely in
support of Ibis invocation, tho hullabaloo
soon brought the farmer iiiiining in,
'Oh Tom nsthore,' cried she, ',it's Mr.
Taafe, tho father of Garret Taafe himself.'
'O Lord!' cried tho fanner, in equal agita
tion, and stared at him. 'My blessing on
tho day you ever tet foot within theso

Lurcher supported tho calls wltli great
energy. In ran a fine little boy and girl.
'Look at this man witli all the eyes in your
bodyl' said he. 'This is MUthcr Taafe,
father of Garret Taafo that saved us all from
ruin and destruction entirely.' He then
turned to Mr. Taafe, and told him, a little
more calmly, 'that, years ago, every haporlh

but Garret Taafo came by, put his hand in
his pocket, took out thirty pounds, nud
cleared them in n moment. It was u way

Tho old man did not hear theso last words

he outlived those tender feelings whoso mor

ho recovered this last blow he brooded aud
brooded, but never shed another tear.
Ono day, seeing him pretty well restored,
ns he thought, tho good farmer camo to hlni
wltli a fat bag of gold. 'Sir,' said lie, 'soon
after your son helped tis, luck set in our
way. Alary she had a legacy; we had a
wonderful crop of llax, and with that plant

to take it. I tell yon all this to show you

'No I' said Mr. Taafe, 'I'll not tako Oar

sight of it I see a way to Whisper,
Then, with bated breath nnd in strict con
fidence, ho hinted to the farmer a schemo of
vengeance. Tho farmer was not even to
tell his wife; 'for,' said old liriau, 'the
very birds carry these things about; and
sure it is knowing divils I havo to do with,
especially tho women.'
Next day, the farmer lent him a good suit
and drovo him to a quiet corner scarce a
hundred yards from his old abode. The old
farmer got down and left him. Lurcher
walked at his master's heels. It was noon
and the mn shining bright.
Tlio wife of Shamus Taafo came out to
hang up her man's shirt to dry, when, lo I
carce thirty yards from her, sho saw an old
man seated counting out gold on a broad
stone at his feet. At first sho thought it
must be one of tho good people or furies
oreise she must bedreaming; but not cock
ing her head 011 one side, she saw for certain
the profile of ISri.in Taafe, and he was count
ing .1 mass of gold. Sho ran in and scream-
ed her news rather than spoko it,
Nonsetiie,'womati !' said Shamus, rough'
ly ; 'it's not in nature.' .
'Then go and see for yourself, man !' said
Shamus was not the only one to tako this
advice. They all stole out on tiptoe, aud
inado a sort of semicirclo of curiosity. It
was no dream; there were piles and piles oT
gold glowing 111 the sun, and old lirian with
a horse-pistol across his knees; and even
Lurcher seemed to havo his eyes steadily
filed on tho glittering bo dy. When they
h nl thoroughly drunk 111 tho most unexpect
ed scene, they began to talk in agitated
whispers ; but even in talking they never
looked at each other their eyes were glued
on tho gold.
Said Guillaum, 'Ye did very wrong, Sha
mus, to turn out the old father as you done
see now tfjiat we all lost by it. That's
part of tho money he laid by, and we'll nev
er see a penny of it."
Tho 'wives whispered that was a foolish
thing to say: 'Leave it to us,' said they, 'and
we'll havo it all, one day.'
This being agreed to, tho women stolo to
ward tlio old man, oiib on each sic)c. Lurch

his gold into his ample pocketsand stood on

there was a sort of chucklo about tho old
fellow in speakingof his own death, which
daughters-in-law secretly denounced as uu

N heiiover he did mention the expected
event, ho was sure to say, 'And mind boys,

Tho funeral was joined in tho church
yard by a stranger, who inuflled his face.and
edlho only tonrs that fell upon that grave.
After tho funeral lie staid bohind all tho
rest and mourned, but ho joined the family
tho feast which followed ; and, behold I
was Garrett, come a day too late. Ho
as welcomed with exuberant affection, not
being down in tho will ; but they did not
ask him to ulceplhcre. They wnnlcd to bo
0110 nnd read the will. Ho begged for
some reminlscenco of his father, and they
gave him Lurcher. So ho put Lurcher into
his gig, nnd drove away to that good farm
er, sure ol Ills welcome, nnd praying God ho
Ight find him alive. Perhaps his brothers
ould not havo let' him go so easily had
ey known ho had made a largo fortune in
America, nnd was going to buy quite n sllco
f the county.
On the way ho kept talking to Lurcher,
nnd reminding him of certain sports they
ad enjoyed together, and feats of poaching
they had performed. I'oor old Lurcher kept
ricking Ills ears all the time, and cudg
eled his memory as to tho tones of the voico
that was addresing him. Garret reached
the farm and was received first with stares
then with cries of joy, and was dragged in
tho house so to speak. After the first ardor
f welcome, ho told them he had arrived
ustiu time to ubry his father. 'And this

lurt it all out, but her man said, 'Another
time,' and gave her a look as black as thun
der, which wasn't his way at all, but ho ex-
lained to her afterward. 'They aro friends,
those three, over the old man's grave. We
hould think twice before we stir ill blood
betune 'em.' So when ho stopped her, she
urned it off cleverly enough, and said tho
Jenr old dog must have his supper. Supper
they gave him, and a new sheepskin to lie
on by the great fire. So there he lav and
eemcd to doze.
Tho ibest bed in the house was laid for
Garret, and when he got up to go to it;
lidu't that wise old dog get up, too, with an
ell'ort, and movo stilly toward Garret, and
ick his hand ; then he lay down again all
of a piece, as wlx should say : 'I'm very
tired of it all.' 'Ho knows mo now at last,'
aid Garret, joyfully. 'That is his way of
saying good-night, I suppose. He was al
ways a wonderful wise dog.'
In the morning they found Lurcher dead
and stiff on tlio sheep skin. It was a
ong good night ho had bid so quietly to tho
friend of his youth.
Garrett shed tears over him, and said : 'If
I had only known what ho meant, I'd have
set up with him. But I never could see far.
Ho was a deal wiser for a dog than I shall
ever be for a man.'
Meantime tho family party assembled in
tho bed-room of the deceased. Every trace
of feigned regret had left their faces, and
all their eyes sparkled with joy and curiosity.
They w ent to open the chest. It was lock
ed. They hunted for the key ; first quietly.
then fussily, Tho women found it at last,
sewed up in tho bed ; they cut it out and
opened tho chest.
Tho first thing they found was a lot of
jfones. They glared at them, and the color
left their faces. What deviltry was this ?
Presently they found writing on one
stone : 'Look below.' Then thero was a
reaction, and a jlgtul laugh. 'The old fox
was afraid the money and parchments would
lly away, so he kept them down.'
They plunged their hands in, and soon
cleared outn barrowful of stones.'till they
came to a kind of paving stono. They lift

I would cot dig my past,
I'p from Its gravo of weakness nnd regret :
Up from Its hopes which glimmered but to set,
Its dreams that could not last.
Yet I can look before,
Aud profit by the lesson sadly learned ;
As children, playing with tho fire, are burned,
And attempt Its glow no more,
I would not, It I could,
Uvo o'er again this dark, uncertain life
This slipping backward In thts dally strlto
Of reaching after good.
And yet I can know how weak
Aro all beloiv,and so sweet charity.
Will cling and glow about each form I Bee,
Andlhus to mo will speak :
I would not open out
Tho hlt healed wounds of other years, long fled;
Twere better they wcro numbered with tho dead;
Hotter than fear or doubt.
Yet I can truly Bay,
Let the dead past bury Its dead. Wo go
bo swiftly onward to life's sunset glow
And then, there Is no day!
life Is too short to wasto
In vain replnlngs or In weak regrets!
Tho strongest hcifrt endures and never frct3
O'er Jojs It may not taste.
A ml ho who can goon
llravely and nrmly In the allotted way,
tlalntcg new strength with every dirkened ray,
fchall surely reach tho dawn.
And so I would not lift
Up from tho grave the shadows of my past;
The clouds that all my sky oaco overcast
Into tho night may drift.
For tliere's enough to I1U
Each hour and moment of tho da s to come ;
Then w herefore woo tho shadows to our hono
Tlio valleys to our htllt

The history of all iniquity includes a vic
tim class and a class who profit by makiiig
them victims. Th6 sinful poor lose to tho
sinful rich, and it would be their deliverance
if they could always see how much the lat
ter gain by them. It is refreshing now and
then to read the story of one who did see.
A young man whom I know, says a cor
respondent of a New York paper, crossed
tho Chelsea Ferry to Boston ono morning,
and turned into Commercial Btreet for his
glass. As ho poured tho poison the land
lord's wife came in and confidently asked
for five hundred dollars to purchase, an ele
gant shawl sho had seen. Ho drew from his
breaat pocket a well-filled pocket-boot aud
counted her out the money.
The man pushed aside the glass untouch
ed, nnd laying down ten cents, departed in
silence. That very morning his wife had
nikeJ him for len ,lolmr9 t0 bay a hi;aP
cloak that eho might attend church. He
angrily told her he hadn't the money. As
he left tho saloon he reflected :
"Here I am helping to pay for a five hun
dred dollar cashmere shawl for that man's
wife, but ray wife in vain asks for a ten dol
lar cloak. I can't stand this. I have spent
my last dime for drink."
When the next pay day camo his wife was
suprised with a beautiful new cloak from her
reformed .husband, Sho could hardly be
lievj her own eyes as ho laid it on tho table
ay ing :
"There, Emma, is a 'present for you. I
havo been a tool long enough. Forgive mo
for tho past, and I will not touch liquor
She threw her arms about his neck, and
her tears told her joy as sho sobbed :
"Charlie, I thank you a thousand times 1
I never expected so nice a cloak. You
couldn't havo have selected a prettier

now, I have supper all ready. You aie so
good and I am so happy."
The great, strung, noblo lellow couldn't
hide his tears as ho related the facts to me.
Hesaid it was the happiest hour in ten years
of married life.
According to tho Baptist Handbook of
the present year there is a Baptist Chapel in
Manchester, Lnglnnd, which rejoices in the
services of no fewer than 00 lay preachers.
I his is wonderful ; but, perhaps, still more
wonderful tho fact that the church numbers
110 moro than 32 members. Kach member,
therefore, has as nearly as pcssiblo three
preachers to look after him.
