THi lo eomfutl nil hi fritnitt,
I'allhtul irlends 1 It lies, I know,
Tale and vvhltoand cold as snow;
And j o siy "Abdallali's dead 1"
Weeping at the feet and head.
I can see your falling tears,
I can hvar your sighs and prajers i
Yet I smile, nnd whisper this
"latn hot tin thing jouklsst
Cease our tears and let It Ho i
It was nine, It Is not 1,'"
Sweet friends 1 what tlio woman lave,
Forltalatt bedct the grave,
Is but n hut which I am quitting,
Is n garment no more fitting,
1 s a cage, from w hlch at last,
Mko a hawk, my soul has passed.
Lovo tlio Inmate, not the room
'Iho wearer, hotthegarb-the plumo
Of the falcon, not tho bars
Which kept Mm from the splendid stun.
I.ov lug friends 1 Ho wise, aud dry
Straightway every weeping eve j
What we lilt upon tho bier
Is not worth a wistful tear.
'TIs an empty sea.shell ono
Out of which tho pearl Is gono j
Tho shell Is broken-It lies thero s
The pearl, the all, the soul. Is here.
'TIs an earthen Jar, who c 11 1

That treasure of his treasury,
A mind that loved him ; let It He I
Let the shard be earth's onco more,
since the gold shtnes In Ills store 1

Now thy world Is understood i
No tho loug, long wonder ends t
Yet ye weep, my erring friends,
While Iho man whom c call dead,
In unspoken bliss, Instead,
Lives and loves j ou j lost, 't Is t rue,
lly such light as shines for on 1
Hut In the light ye cannot see
ot unfulfilled felicity
In enlarging paradise,
Lives a life that never dies.
Farewell, friends I Yet not farewell
Where I am, yo tevo shalt dwell,
I am gooe betoro our face,
A moment's ttme, a little space ;
When 5 e come wlicro I have stepped
Ye vvlllwonderwliy vevvept :
Ye will know, by wise luve taught,
That then Is all, and there Is naught.
Weep aw Idle, If j e are fain
Sunshine still must follow rain s

Now I know. Is that llrst breath

It was Carl's first business venture, thai i,
in a mercantile way. To be sure, ho hud
swapped jack-knives, invariably getting the
worst of the bargain ; hud bartered marble,
tops and whip?, ever since he became so far
advanced as d-o-g, c-o w, I remember, on
one occasion ho traded his new Sunday suit,
sent home from the city the day before, hat
boots and all, for a small music-box, of the
hand-organ stripe. For days thereafter the
neighbors were entertained with the inspir
ing strains of "Old Dan Tucker," tho sole
tune played by that music-box, which, alter
incessant grinding, probably got disgusted,
for it refused even to squeak out ils only air,
doubtless much to the delight of the same
neighbors. So the box was consigned to the
attic where to this day tho dust falls quietly
upon, and the spiders weave their ftlmly
webs peacefully about it ; just as the dust
and cobwebs of oblivion have covered the
whole transaction so far as Curl's remem
brance of it is concerned. You see he tries
to believe be has entirely forgotten it, yet
wo notice he does not like to hear it men
tioned. 1 began to tell you about Carl's first ex
perience as a merchant, but first let me tell
vou about Carl himself.
He is really, truly a live boy, short and
stubby, with elbows and toea that have the
greatest faculty for poking themselves
through the cloth and leather. He has the
blackest eyes and hair, curling in little rings
all over his merry head, the rouudest, red-
lest cheeks, nnd freckles who ever saw n
boy without freckles ? Carl has .1 temper too
and very often in years past, occasionally
now, I grieve to say, bis black eyes snap and
Hash, his red cheeks grow redder yet, his
lists clench, and his feetlly against anything
that is within reach of them. Still we are
not sorry that ho has a temper if he but
learns to control it. Then he teazes the
little girl across the way. Carl has no sis
ter or brother, and he eats randy and green
apples just like any other live hoy.
However, During luis particular summer
Carl had not eaten much candy, simply be
cause in the first place he had none to eat,
and in the next had no money to buv any
with ; that i", no money where he could get
atit. There was n little red hank in one
corner of the mantle, with a most n tural
looking frog crouching on its roof ; it was
such Inn to see the greedy fellow take u five
cent piece into that wide-open mouth of his
and gulp it down as if it was the most de
licious of real flies and he the most hungry
of real frogs, that Carl quite forgot candy
until loo late, for the frog never gave back
Htivthing he once had swallowed and the
hank was not to be opened until the fourth
of July, Carl's birthday, when he would be
ten years old.
So the tiauk got Metier and Heavier iluy liy
day. Carl had lots of aunts and uncles who
were always pinching his red cheeks, tweak
ing his hair, pulling his black curls, and
then giving him live cents to buy candy
with. Carl rushing through the sitting
room on his way to the store could not help
seeing the frog perched disconsolately on
the bank, with wide open, hungry month,
It drew the fi 'e cents like a magnet, eveu
though a chubby and very often I am sor
ry to say, a dirty little hand was clasping it
closely, Carl couldn't resist the temptation
of seeing how far down the iron throat the
five tenia might get without leaving his
fingers. In a moment he would pull 'hem
out, the mouth would lly open again, Carl's
faco would wear a much aggrieved expres
sion fur ten minutes, and then the perfor
mance was all ready to begone through with
again whenever Carl's fist was closed over
vnothcr bit of silver, Still I think if temp
tation must needs be, that was a very good
way to be tempted, and if I could have my
will, I would give every little boy a money
box with a frog to swallow tho pennies. An
Iron frog you know, that would give the
pennies back again "in good order and con
So the hank grew heavier, and tho Fourth
of July was coming, nnd Carl had nn Iden,
not an original one, perhnps ho wanted
to mako somo money, Surely that's not
original. So ho thought nnd thought nnd at
"Father, I wish you'd say ye."
"To what, my loy ?"

I begin, p l-c a-s-e, father ?"
Cart wasn't too much of n mau depito his
'ten-year-old nextFo'th o' duly, ir,' to put
his arms right round his lather's neck and
give hi in a good, sound smack.
His father laughed and said :
"Ye, I gues.sso j how much money has
your frog swallowed?"
Curl didn't know;so thebank was brought
and tho little boy sent out of the room
while the frog was made to disgorge. C.ul
wasn't allowed to see tho process, lest he
might try it for himself some time. When
he came In again a glittering little heap of
silver lay on the table; the bank was empty
the frog perched Innocently upon It with
mouth wide open as ever. When the money
was counted, Carl looked over his father's
shoulder and croaking (he can't sing a
"The King was In the parlor, counting out Ids mon

was there ?"
Fifteen dollars nnd ninety-eight cents !
seemed quite a fortune to Carl, and the
chance of, perhaps, doubling it by invest
ing it In "candy an1 niiples an' pics an'
things 7" No wonder Carl's snapping black
eyts shone big and bright with joyous an
ticipation. ' And you'll have Aunt Puttie Fields to
make 'em lor me, cakes, you know, an'
pies," ho sa'd, throwing bis arms around
his mother's neck, nearly choking her in
Aunt Patty Fields, so-called by all the
village people, though she had neither kith
nor kin among them, had in her younger
days been a pastry-cook in a famous city of
Xevv York ; so, since she had at ono time
kept house three weeks for Carl's mother
and Carl had, with her permission, slutted
himself sick with delicious tarts and cake
and pie.he had come to bo her fast friend and
to believe devoutly In her ability to concoct
anything in the cooking line.
"Mayn't she, mother, please?"
And his mother smiled nnd said "yes,"
too. People say Ihey spoiled the boy, but
I don't believe that I
So the next morning Aunt Patty came ;
and of all the silting of flour and of stoning
of raisins and picking over of currants and
measuring of sugar nnd spices nnd beating
eggs I Carl bad a linger and sometinns
two or three of them in each and every
pie. At night thero were rows onrovvsol
cakes and tarts and pies on the i aiitry
shelves. Perhaps that fact may account for
Carl's sudden nnd irresistiblo ihirstiness
and his consequent frequent visits to the
kitchen for water.
The moruingof tho Fourth came at last
as all mornings, however anxiously looked
fir, do come. Carl was up earlier than he
had ever luen before in all his len-year-life,
carrying his wares from the pantry shelves
to his little "booth" he wanted a store by
himself, you know, which had been erected
for him. He looked rather di-dainl'uliy,
I nm afraid, on other ten j ear-old boys,
whose chief enjoyment seemed to be in snap
ping torpedoes and crackers.
Kverylhing was so fresh and neat in Curl's
store that I wish you could have seen it;
the narrow counter, made of rough boards,
had nevertheless, a piney suiell that quite
made up for its lack of elegance, so Ctrl
thought, aud so I think.
Well, he arranged his cakes and confec
tions along the shelyes, opened his ledger
took his pen and vvroto on the clean white
pages in his scrawling, school-boy hand:
"Account with Mister"'
Presently people began to flock into the
villace, and Carl was in a fever of excite
ment lest ono should not notice the sign in
black letters : "Xuts, Cakes, Candy, Ap
ples, And F.very-Thing JXise For Sale Hear."
The last two or three words dangled down
ignominiously. There was not room on the
lint people did notico him and his little
store was filled with customers, One thing
troub'ed Carl ; they all paid down, aud he
could see no Use for his ledger.
At last however, there came a golden op
portunity and he snatched it, A red-headed
freckled-face, bare-footed stub of u boy, af
ter buying "five cents' worth of checker
berry pipe, if you please," suddenly dis
covered that he had no money.
"I'll irust )ou," cried Carl, eagerly, going
to his ledger, "rallier'n not!" Then think
ing of something lie had forgotten, he said,
Vv hat h your name, did you say sir ?"
"No, I didn't say, sir !" returned red-head
who, it seemed, was "up," in slang parlance
to a great many things, snulX included. I le
looked at our 1 it t lo merchant, steadily for a
moment, "taking his measure," he would
have said. A quiet snicker pulled itself
through the thin lips, and then : "Itobi.-i
Hood, sir, is my name,"
Straightway was entered in that ledgei:

Carl Ilonney. Dr. to five sticks of checker-

This last remark was addressed lo Henry

so kind as to trust liiin?"
lieforo that "Mr. Ilonney" uttered so
reverently would havo tickled Girl's vanity
amazingly, but he didn't take the bait this
time, and made answer as before stated, ad
ding, "Nor none of you shan't have any
more. I ain't going to trust another
It was the signal for a general scramble.
Such an uproar was never heard betore nor
since In that civilized community. Oliver
Cromwell, William Tell and the twoTwceds
Jef. Davis, and all, vied with each oilier
in who should obtoin the greatest lot of con
fections. The Tweeds seemed to he adepts
at stealing. Poor Carl was powerless to pre
vent the robbery, even if he had known
viliat it all meant. Ho was screaming "fath
er 1" at tho very tip top of his lungs, and
consumption is not hereditary in his family.
When the row sulisid.d so that he cntild
make himself heard, his father catue,though
quite too late to mete out justice, for Oliver
CroniA'ell's heels were just flying around
the corner, and Oliver being short and lat,
was behind them all.
Carl told his story, nnd his father nearly
choked in trying not to laugh. He did not
try when it came to reading (he ledger ' Ac
counts with Mister Thomas Jeller-on, with
Mister Isaac Nutnn, etc.," he jut lei his
pent-up laughter go off in ono loud, long
roar. Then lie took the little pile of inoiiev
from the box just one dollar and ninelv
seven cents looked over the ledger casting
up accounts, put on Carl's cap and went
home to dinner.
"Well Carl, if you had sold your wares
for money, you would have made two dol
lars and fifteen cent', besides what was stol
en, now you havo lost fourteen dollars and
"Shan't never trust anybody again," said
Carl, shaking his head decidedly.
His father laughed.
"F.xperience is cheap at fourteen dollars,"
he said. "People have paid many thousand
mid even millions, for it."
Very often now, ns Carl sits nt breakfast
lie sees Hobin Hood in tho street, bp he
jumps, nearly knocking the table over in
his clliirtJ to reach the door. When he does
Robin Hood is never to be seon.
Carl will sell those ledger accounts, for five
cents on a dollar.

As I strolled around the closo of Christ

companion, a member of the Montreal press,
stopped mo as we reached an odd-looking
brick structure occupying tho Northwestern

stilment' Highland ingenuity ni:d courage.
Th" hero of it was a sergeant of Montgom

by the Indians, he was doomed to vviiue-s
the niisei.ilile spectacle of several of hi
cuintii'hs toi'Uiretl to death. J-eeing them
prep.ui ig lo commence the same operations
upon himself, he made signs tnat he I. ml
something to communicate. An interpret! r
was brought. Macphcrson told tiiem that,
provided his life was spared for a few mm
ules, he would communicate tho secret of an
extraordinary medicine, which, if applied
to the skin, would cause it to icslst the
strongest blow of a tomahawk or sworj, and
tha il they would allow him to go in the
woods with a guard to collect the plants
proper for this medicine, lie would prepare
it, aud allow tho experiment to be tried on
his own neck by Iho strongest und most ex
pert warrior among them. The storj
easily gained upon Iho superstitious creduli
ty of the Indians, and the request of Iho
Highlander was immediately complied with,
Heiug sent into the woods, ho boon relumed
with such herbs as lie choso to pick up.
Having boiled these herbs, he rubbed his
neck with their juice, and, laying his head
on a lo of wood, desired tha strongest man
among them to strike at his neck with Ills
tomahawk, when he would find that ho
could not mako tho smallest impression. An
Indian, leveling a blow with all his might,
cut with such force that the head flew off to
to the distance of several yards. The In
dians wero fixetd with amazement at their
own credulity, nnd the address witli which
the prisoner had escaped the lingering death
prepared for him ; but instead of being en
rageel at this escane of their victim, they
were so plcastdwilli his ingenuity that th-y
refrained from iullicting further cruelties on
the remainder of tho prisoners.
