And closo besldo this aged thorn
There Is a fresh and lovely sight,
A beautlousheap, nhlllof mots
Just half a foot In height.
All lovely colors there you see,
All colors that were ever seen i
And mossy net-work, too, Is there,
As It by hand of lady fair
Tho work had woven been s
A nd cups ttio darlings of tbo eye,
So deep Is their vermilion dye.
Ah mo 1 what lovely tints aro thcro
Of otlvc-green and scarlet bright,
In spikes, and branches, and In stars,
Green, red and pearly white.
This heap of earth o'ergrown with moss
Whlih by the thorn you see,
So fresh In all its beauteous dyes,
Is ltko an Infant's gravo In size,
As like as like can bo ;
But never, never, anywhero,
An Infant's gravo was half so fair I
DEATH IN THE WOOD.
Sr ELAIK2 OOODALK.
Death In tho Wood
Death and a ficcno of decay 1
Death and a horror that creeps with the blood,
And stiffens the limbs to clay,
for tho rains aro heavy and slow,
And the leaves are shrunken and wan,
And tho winds aro sobbing weary and low,
And the lite ot tho j ear Is gone.
Death In the wood
Death tn Its fold over fold,
Death that I shuddered and Bank where I stood,
At tho touch of a hand so cold
At tho touch of a hand so cold,
And tho sight of a clay-whlto face,
For I saw tho corpso of a friend I loved,
And a hush fell over the place.
"Death In tho wood
Death and a scene ot decay,
Death, and a horror but half understood,
Whero blank as the dead I lay ;
What curso hung over the earth,
What woe to too tribes of men.
That felt as a death what was made for a blrtb,
And a birth sinking deathward again I
Death In the wood
In the death-pale lips apart ;
Death In a whiteness that curdled the blood,
Mow black to the very heart I
Tho wonder by her was formed
Who stands supreme In power ;
To show that life by tho spirit comes,
She gavo rs a soulless now cr."
A SAUCASM OP PATE
A very elegant looking letter lay in little
Minnie Velsor'a hands a letter that bore a
delicious perfume of violets a letter ad
dressed in a fine flowing hand and the enve
lope of which was Btamped with aa intricate
monogram, that unless Minnie had known,
she could never have deciphered as Mrs.
Paul St. Eustace Carriscourt's initials.
The girl's small, pretty hands grew just a
liille cold and trembling as she took up the
letter to open it, because so much, oh, so
much, depended upon what was in the letter;
becau?e it either meant a new, independent
life, in which she would not only earn her
own living, but very materially assist in
taking care of the dear boys of 5 and 7, or
it doomed her to the old tiresome routine,
out of which Minnie felt at times she must
Mrs. Velsor looked up from a stocking she
as darning, and said nothing, seeing the
nervous glow in Minnie's eyes. Then, with
little, half desperate laugh, the girl tore
open the thick satin envelope.
It's almost like au ice cold plunge bath,
but here goes, mamma 1'
Sho hurriedly read the short, friendly
note, and by the quick tears that gathered
in her eyes, and the smiles that parted her
lips, and the flush that bloomed like red
roses on her cheeks, it was quite plain that
the news was good news.
Then she dathed the letter on the floor and
rushed over to her mother, aud kissed her,
laughing and crying at the same time.
Oh I mamma I Mrs. Carriscourt has given
me the position, and she wanU me to come
immediately to-morrow I Just think 1
Five hundred dollars a year, and she as
sures me I must make myself perfectly at
Some in her house ; and she says, I am to
ave a room to myself, and to eat with Pau
line and Pauletta, in tho nursery. On,
mamma, it will be just glorious 1 Aren't
you glad, delighted ?'
Her blue eyes were dancing, and her
cheeks glowing like a rose leaf.
Mrs. Velsor'a sweet, sad voice was in such
odd contrast to her child's eager, animated
'How can I be delighted to have you go
away Irom me, dear uesiues, i am so
alraid you will not realize your vivid antici
pations, Tho outside world.which seems to
you so rose colored and golden, will not be
what you think.'
'Oh, mamma, what a Job's comforter you
would bel Hut how can I help being hap
py perfectly happy, except being away
from you in New York, in a magnificent
house, among people of wealth and distinc
tion, and with these two sweet childien iny
only care ? Mamma, I will ride with them
and I am to make myself perfectly at home,
the letter says, and you remember what a
charming lady we thought Mrs. Carriscourt
was, when she was visiting Doctor Mans
field last summer.'
Mrs. Velsor sighed softly. It seemed so
cruel to pour the chill water of dissappoint-
ment on Minnie's bright hopes.
Well, dear, perhaps I am growing cynl
cal as I grow older. Certainly you deserved
a fair fate, and now, to descend to matters
of earth earthy, suppose you see If the beans
are boiling dry.'
The third day thereafter a day fragrant
with the smell of frost in the air a day
when the leaves sailed slpwly, stately down
through the tender, golden atmosphere, and
the hush of mid-October was over all tbo
earth and Bky, Miunie Velsor went away
from her little cottage where she was born
and had lived, to the world waiting to re
ceive her all her girlish hopes on gladdest
wlug.all her rosiest dreams bursliuglu fond
It was a splendid place, Mrs, Paul St,
Eustace Carriecourt's palatial residence on
Fifth avenue a house that seemed to Mln
uio's fancy like a translated bit of a fairy
story with its profusion of flowers and lace
draperies, Its luxuries and elegance, of
which she had never dreamed, and of whose
uses she was equally Ignorant.
Mrs. Carriscourt received her with
charming graciousness and patted her on
the shoulder, and told her she hoped ih
would not let herself get homesick, nd In
Hailed her In htr beautiful llttU room, with
its pink and drab Ingrain carpet and chest
nut suit, and dimity curtains at the win
Then Minnie made some trifling little al
terations in her toilette, and proceeded to
take literal advantage of Mrs. Carriscourt'a
invitation to make herself at home in tho
great, beautiful parlors below, whero she
made a charming sweet, qualut little picture
as she sat nestled in a huge silken chair, the
color of the roses on her cheeks, and at
which Miss Cleona Carriscourt looked in
astonlshtd, imperious disdain, and Mr.
Geoffrey Fletcher In undisguised admiration
as the two entered tho room at the farthest
'Uy Jove, what a lovely girl I Who is
she, Miss Carriscourt V ho asked In a tone
nf iinusal interest.
Clcona's black eyes looked unutterable
anger from Minnie to Mrs. Carriscourt,
'What on earth is Bbo doing hre,mamma,
is she crazy V
Her sharp, cutting tone was distinctly
heard, as she intended it should be, by Min
nie, who flushed painfully at sho rose, ven
turing justone glance at the haughty beau
ty's face, and Mr. Fletcher's eager, admir
ing eyes, whose boldness Btartled her.
'I am sorry to have mado such a mistake.
I thought Mrs. Carriscourt meant I was to
sit here a little while. Please excuse me ; I
will not come again.'
Her voice was sweet, and just a little
nervous, and she Instantly crossed the room,
followed by Clcona's cold, cutting words,
every ono of which brought a sharp thrill of
mortification aud pain to her,
'Be careful you make no more such mis
takes, girl. Your place is among the hired
help, not in the parlors. Be good enough to
And even Geoffrey Fletchei's callous heart
gave a thrill of sympathy at sight of the
scarlet pain on the sweet, young face.
Once safe in her room, poor little Minnie
fought and conqutred her first battle with
'I'll not be crushed by ,my first experi
ence, she decided, resolutely, an hour or so
after, when her breast yet heaved with con
vulsive sighs, and her eyet were all swollen
from crying. 'I will not give it up and rush
home to mamma my first impulse, I will
endeavor to construe people less literally ,and
keep my place.'
Rut there came a flush to her cheeks that
all her brave philosophizing could not con
trol, at the memory of Cleona Carriscourt's
'I'd not have spoken so to a dog,' Minnie
said, as she repressed the bitter tears that
sprang in wounded indignation to her blue
After that there was no shadow of an op-
portunity given by Minnie for Mrs. Carris-
court or Cleoui to lay any blame to her
She performed her duties as no governess
had ever performed them, and the twins
progressed to their mother's complete satis-
Minnie neverwassecn in tho rooms ofthe
family, but lived entirely to herself, taking
her solitary little walks when the day's
duties were ended, and disciplining herself 1
into an unconsciously unselfish, brave, pa
Her letters home were bright and cheer
ful until one day Mrs. Velsor was horrified
to learn that her darling was dangerously
ill, that the fever had come suddenly upon
her, and that in fear and selfishness, Mrs.
Paul St. Eustaco Carriscourt had insisted
that the raving girl be taken from her house
to the hospital.
'It will kill her to move her,' Dr. Leth
bridge had remonstrated indignantly,
'What nonsense, mamma 1' Cleona retort
ed, looking fiercely at the physician, 'It
will not hurt her to be moved nearly as

He looked coldly, almost furiously, at

he bowed, and answered quietly :

And Dr. Lethbridge personally superin

An Episode of Hayes' New Year.
One of the worst cases of injustice under
the present administmion is that of Col
Henry C. De Ahna, state collector of cus
toms at Sitka, Alaska. Mr. De Ahna, after
being appointed collector at Sitka, was re
jected by the senate, without good cause.and
simply on account .of the negligence with
which John Sherman treated his case. He
was impoverished by the expenses of his
journey to Alaska and return, and the ad-
ministration has steadily refused to do any.
thing for him. Ihe finance committee ofthe
senate, the other day, wrote Sherman that
it had knowledge of the circumstances under
which De Alma lost his place ; that it was
a misapprehension ; that he was a faithful,
meritorious officer, and recommended hi
for a position in the treasury department.
This letter was received with sneers by Sher
man and Hawley. Wednesday De Ahna
went to Sherman's office nnd excitedly re
peated the story of his wrongs, and swore
tlint justice should bo doue him. Sherman
called for the messengers to put him out, but
De Ahna told them to stand off, hurled more
invectives at Sherman and departed.
New Year's day, at the citizens' reception
at the white houe, in the presence of hun
dreds of visitors,Ue Ahna stood up and told
Mr. Hayes that he had been seeking justice
here for the past eighteen months, and now
had come to tell him that if Divine Provi
dence would inflict upon him the one-hundredth
part of the disgrace, poverty and suf
fering that had been inflicted upon his (De
Alma's) family for the patt two year.t,Hayes
would not have a happy moment of his life ;
and, he conliuued, "neither do you deserve
Hf re the police rushed in and took hold
of De Ahna, but he found time to shout,
"Here we have a very small would-be des
pot, who does not know how "
The incident created a great deal of ex
citement among the crowd, which had to be
parted all through the house and at the main
entrance, to let De Ahna pass out. Hayes,
during Do Alma's shouting, kept duckiog bis
head and attempting to greet the other visi
tors, who still then seemed anxious to hear
De Ahna through.
What a Fire I'olicy Covers.
Fire insurance policies do not include in
their indemnity among other things the fol

Iron In 1S79.
A PRODUCTION NEVER BEFORE EQUALED i
The year which lias just closed was a most
remarkable ono in tho history of the Ameri
can iron trade. According to a special report
completed recently by Mr. James M,
Swank, secretary of tho American Iron and
Steel Association, moro pig iron, bar iron(
rails and steel wcro turned out than in any
previous year. The production of pig iron
was 2,800,000 gross tons, or half a million
moro than in 1878; of iron and steel rails,
1,1000,000 tons, exceeding the previous year
by 311,889 tons. The production of rolled
iron was 20 per cent larger than in 1878.
Tho advanco in prices has been considera
ble. No. "1 anthracite foundry pig has ad
vanced 100 per cent', cut nails by the keg,
102 per cent.; old iron nails 89 per cent.;
No. 1 wrought scrap 70 per cent. These aro
among tho highest advances.
Says Mr. Swank : "Such a rapid advance
in prices has never beforo taken placo in ono
year in this country, except during tho war;
but if allowance bo made for tho depreciation
in tho currency in that period, tho present
rito is absolutely wihtout parallel."
Tho year 1879 was remarkable for tho new
jmpulso which it gnve to the building of rail
roads. About 4,000 miles wcro constructed
against 2,747 in 1878. Tho milcago of 1879
was equil to that of 1873, which was 4.0GU
miles. The greatest milcago in any one year
was in 1871, when 7,003 miles wcro built.
Tho increased demand for now rails was ono
of tho cautes of tho iron trade revival, but a
more potent cause was tho sudden demand in
tho spriug by existing roads for rails, cars
and locomotives, to meet tho requirements of
increased transportation of agricultural pro
ducts and to compensate for the wear and
tear of the hard time.
Tho buine of building iron ships did not
improve in 1S79, but tho manufacture of steel
wire fencing was greatly extended durin," tho
year, about 20,000 tons of steel being con
sumed in this new industry. Thcro was also
a very largo demand during tho year for iron
pipes and tanks for the Ilradford region. Du
ring tho lat si months t lie importanco of pig
ron, iron and steel rails have been very
large. 'This,' pays Mr. Swank, "should
teach our manufacturers that tho English
policy of piling up iron in hard times, to bo
prepared for good times is a safe policy to
Of tbo prospects of the trade for the com
ing year, tho Association has this to say:
"Experience hat taught us that it is not sale
to prophesy what any year has in storo for
tho American iron trade. Wo will, there
fore, simply state, what probably every person
in the trado already knows, that moro furna
ces and mills will be running in 1SS0 than in
1879, and that, as a consequence, our iron
and stc;l production in tho new year will bo
greater than in tho old one. After the 1st of
pril it will be fu!'y equal to tho demand of
all lines. Whether prices will regain as high
as they aro or go up still higher no man can
find out, nor whether we will build moro
railroads in 18S0 than iu 1879. It seems cer
tain that our importations of iron oro this
year will bo larger than last, large contracts
having alrcadv been made. Probably 600,000
tons will be imported in 18S0 agasnst 300,000
tons in 1S79. The sioel blooms in 1869, ag
gregating considerably less than 500,000 tons
have not yet arrived."
