At lirst, when I sent Stephen from
me to talk to Annie, he went with re-
gret ; a little while, and there was no
regret : and then, oh 1 woeful thought,
I fancied he went with pleasure.
Once, as he sat by her. chattinrr and
amusing her, I thought he looked liko
her father, and I moturod him in thn
future adapting his conversion to tho
intelligence of a littlo child who should
call mo mother, and bringing blight
smiles into her face and overshadowing
her with loving kindness and protec

My own affection was my greatest

Annie grew strong and merry, but
her figure was still slight and fragile,
and her eyes kept their sadness, and
her manner was still simple nnd plead

would never grow womanly, my moth

Aud i went to my music; I could not

And thus Annio went from us, and I

I mot a Mason at my railroad station
the other day, who wore n Masonic
emblem. I spoke to him ns a Mason,
and ho responded in an appropriate
manner. This is ono advantage of pre
senting a breastpin, ring, or other
badge having our mystical characters
upon it, that tho wearer claims to bo a
Mason, and challenges your approach.
When opportunity offers, I always
greet such nu one ns a Brother, nnd
often mako pleasant and valuablo ac
quaintances thereby. In the case men
tioned, I told tho stranger who I was,
and in reply, he told mo that my namo
and Masonic labors were familiar to
him. This was a good enough opening
between us, and I soon began to recall
tne names ol JUnsous resident m tlic

them nil : knew who were living, who
had removed to other parts, who had
taken the rcturnless path which all of
us soon must tread. Ho know who
wero tho present officers of tho Lodgo,
aud could oven tell mo who were the
subscribers among bis feilow-mcmbors
to tho Masonic Reviow indeed ho left
no doubt upon my mind of his inden
tity. JJ'it when I asked him relative to a
larticnlar friend of mino among those
Masons, "Brother II is a swindlor.
Ho owes mo a bill, and I havo had to
sue him. Ho won't pay an honest
debt. Ho ought to bo expelled.'' Gen
tly I eluded him, "that it was wrong
to speak in that way of a Urother ;
that tho good name of a Mason is a
precious possession, and that our obli
gations bind us closely to cherish each
other's fair fame " Hut the more bit
terly ho fulminated his charges, and
I was constrained to change the sub
ject. Sj much was I exerciied over this
matter that I felt constrained to write
a confidential letter to another Uroth
er living in the same place a minister
in tho church to which I belong, nnd n
prudent, careful mnn. I wrote him
confidentially what I had heard so pub
licly asserted (for half a dozen strang
ers were within hearing), and asked
him for a truo statement. He replied
that there was not a word of truth in
tho charges ; that the Brother's charac
ter was spotless ; that ho was famed
for promptness and honesty in bis deal
ings, etc. Tho only ground for the
malicious and acrimonious statements
I have heard was that as a guardian of
somo orphans lie had refused to pay an
exorbitant bill until the Courts should
pass upon its validity.
After reading this letter, I fell into
a fit of musing. It is possible, thought
I. that my character is at the hazard of
such men Shall a member of my
Lodge, going from home and falling
into casual conversation with a stran
ger at a railroad station, havo in his
power thus to blacken me and spread
nbroad such false, cruel and calum

"The tongue," ho says, "can no man

"And tho worst of this infection of
slander is that it makes its "marks indel

who was vilely slandered in my hearing,
without some discount from my for
mer exalted opinion of him. He
