"What I " muttered Noah Brcnnan,
ga2ing Into Walter Adams' face, "do
you mean Hint you'll givo mo n home
too Hint you will provide for roe and
help me'"
"Yes." returned tho youth hopefully.
"I could never be happy with Agnes,
much as I lovo her, if I thought her
dear old father had no homo. Come,
wo will live together, and bo as happy
as the days are long."
"But yoursa'nry 1"
"Is sufficient for us. I have five
hundred dollars n year. Wo can live
on that, and lay up something, too."
'"Well, well tako her love her bo
good to her mako her happy dou't
When tho old man saw tho Joyous
tears streaming from his child's eyes,
ho turned away aud walked quickly
from the house, but ho was not so quick
but that lie heard the blessing that fol
lowed lilin. -rltul when ho talked
atone hem nth tho starry heavens, he
wiped his eyes ns though something
troubled hlra.
Gay as a lark was gentle, beautiful
Agnes, when she becamo tho wife of
Walter Adams. The rose, bloomed
again upon her cheek, and tho smiles
were upon her happy facellkosunshino
nil the day long.
"Do you pray God to helpyou'to
love mo now?" tho old man asked,
after ho hud lived with Walter some
two months.
"Why, what do you mean V Agnes
asked, in surprise.
"You used to pray so, for I heard
you," returned Noah.
A moment the .young wife gazed Into
her parent's face, aud then sho an
swered, while ho threw her arms about
his neck:
"Oil, I pray that you may bo spared
to us for long years In pence nnd hap
piness. But love you ? Oh, I could
not help it If I should try.- And Wniter
loves you, fntl er ho loves you very
much, tor ho has told mo so many
There was something morn than
usual in tho old man's eyes now.
One evening, as the happy trio sat
at tho tea table, Walter looked more
sober thnn was his wont.
"What is it, love?'" Agnes asked.
"Oh, nothing;" the husband said,
with a smile, "I was only thinking."
"But of what?"
"Only castle bulldlnj;, that's all."
"In tho air, Walter?" said foah.
"Yes, very high in the nlr," the
young roan replied, with a laugh.
"But tell us what It is."
"Well, I'd as llef tell you ns not.
Mr. Osgood is to rctlro from our firm
In a few days. Ho Is well advanced In
yenrs, nnd has runde a fortune In the
business, and will now live for comfort
and health nlone. IIo lias not been
very well of lato years."
"And Is that alt?"
"JVo. I nm to ba advanced to tho
post of hend book-keeper, with a sal
nry of twclvo hundred dollars,"
"And Is that all?"
"But what castlo in the nlr is there
about that?" ,
"Oh, that Isn't tho castlo."
"Then what Is the castlo ?" urged
tho old roan.
"Why, simply thlsf" said Walter,
laughing, but yet almost ashamed to
tell It. "This noou Mr. Osgood patted
ino on the shoulder, and said, In a play
ful way, 'Walter, I'll sell you all my
Interest hero for fifty thousand dol
lars.' "
"Ha, ha, ha I" laughed Noah Uren
nan, "and you thought ho was In ear
nest?" "No, no," quickly returned the
young man, "I did not think that,
though I kuew'that tho two other part
ners would willingly have me for an
"But It seems to me that Osgood
holds his share in the concern nt a high
'Oh, no; It's a very low one. There
fs n clear capital of one hundred and
fifty thousand dollars in tho business
at this moment; and think of all the
standing and good will, which goes for
"Ha, ha, ha 1" laughed the old roan
, Then Wniter Jaughod, and then Agi
nes laughed, and then they finished
their supper.
On the next evening Walter - Adams
cair.e In and sat down on tho sofa with
out speaking. Ho was palo and agi
tated, nnd his eyes had a vacant, wan
dering stare.
"Walter I" -cited Agues, In terror,
"what has happened?"
"He's sick," muttered Noah Bren
nan, without looking around.
"No, no; not sick," returned tho
young man, starting up, "but I am the
victim of a miserable trifling."
"Eh, how ?" nsked old Noah, now
turning in his chnir.
"I'll tell you," said Wniter, with a
spasmodic effort. "I hnd some long
entries to post this evening, so I re
mnlned In the counting room after the
rest hnd gone. I was still nt work
when Mr. Osgood enmu in nnd placed
sonio papers on my desk, saying, ns he
did so: 'Here, Walter, aro yours.'
And then ho went out. When I had fin
ished my work I opened the papers.
Tho first was n sort of Inventory of
what Osgood hnd owned In the business,
and footed up, In round numbers,
forty-nine thousand eight hundred nnd
seventy-fivo dollars. Tho next paper
was a deed conveying the whole vnst
property to me, and making mo a part
ner In the concern upon equal footing
with tho other two."
"Well," said the old man, thumping
his foot upon the carpet and keeping
tlino with his hands, "1 don't see any
thing very bad in that."
'"But I do," said Wniter. "It li
cruel to trifle with mo thus."
"There was something In Noah' eyo
ngaln, but ho managed to get It out,
aud ho spoke thus:
"Walter ldams, when young men
used to hover about my child, I be
lieved tho same of you. I knew of
nothing but this love of money that
could underlie human action. My heart
had become haidened by it, nnd my
soul darkened It was for my child
to pour tho warmth and light into my
bosom. It was for her to keep before
mo the Imago of tho gentlo wife whom
I had loved nnd lost, but, nlas 1 who oc
cupied a place In Hint lovo second to my
gold. It was for my child to open
gradually, but surely, the fount of feel
ing which had been for a llfo-tlme
closed up. I heard her pray for me
pray that she might lovo me that sho
might have help from God to lovo me;
and that was after I had refused to let
her bo your wife. I saw her grow palo
and sorrowful, nnd I knew I had dono
It nud she loved me still. Still she
prnyed to God to help her help her
whnt ? Help her lovo her father I I
was killing her, nnd sho tried to smllo
upon me. Ono evening I heard you
both conversing in the old hut. My
child chose misery nnd duty to her
father, rather than break that duty In a
union with a man' sho loved, wind you
uttered a prayer. Ymi prayed that I
might bo pointless. Stop I hear mo
through I You would then show your'
disinterestedness. I walked away and
pondered. Could It be that I hail found
n man who would love an old wreck
like myself, with no money. IMtwcre
so, then that would break tho layer of
crust from my soul. I determined to
test you. I had gained a glimmering
of light, my heart had begun to grow
warm, and I prayed frequently that I
might not be disappointed.
"I went to tho bank and drew out
fifty thousand dollars In bills. That
night my miserable old hut was set on
on fire or a caught fire. I shall nl
ways think 'twas my candle did It. But
the old shell burnt down, and room was
made for a better building. Icameout
with tho wrong trunk, and tho other
trunk was burnt up. But the money
wasn't In it. No, no. I' had that
stuffed Into my bosom and deep pock
ets, nnd all buttoned up, and the next
day I carried It back to tho bank, and
had It put with a few' thousands more
which I had not disturbed. And so
my experiment commenced, and Hound
the full sunshlno at last. Aye, Walter,
I found you the noble, true man I had
prayed for. You took rao Into your
home nnd loved me when you thought
roe penniless, and you took my child to
your bosom for Just what God had
mado her. And, now, my boy, I've,
paid Mr. Osgood fifty thousand dollars
cash for his share of the business, and
it Is nil yours. And let me tell you one
thing, my boy, If your two partners
can ralje fifty thousand more tb'lrivcst,
lust tell 'em jou can' put lu'fiye'and,.

Upon tho nrrlval of a train In

affectionately greeted a stylMi young
lady as follows: "Why, how'd do,

Didn't hardly know ye! Got your

the subject.
. There is n boy near tho depot who
Is nccuatoined to go out on the railroad

eminently successful; tho depot master
came out and switched hi in off.

A pilvato In tho army sent a letter
to his sweetheart, closing with: ".Uy

A cnptnln finding nn Irish boy,
during the middle watch, frying sumo
ham aud eggs ho had stolen from the
ship's stoies, called out to him, "You
lubber, you, I'll have nono of that."
"Faith, Captain, I've none for you,"
said the lad.
A nogro In Virginia went to sleep
with Ills head on a railroad track, and a

He got up swearing that ho couldn't

An Irishman on his first shootluz
excursion shot n bird, and seeing some
thing fall, went to tho foot of the tree,
and picking up a frog, supposing It to
bo a bird, put It In his pocket. The
frog kept up such n continual hopping
tlgat his companion asked him what
jnado tho bird hop so. "Och," said
Pat, "tho poor thing Is could; I shot all

One of Jones' constituents, who
had a remarkably red hose, having
fallen asleep In n barber's chair, a ne
gro boy who was waiting to get shorn
of his wool, observed a mosquito ltov

It very attentively. At last it lit upon

"Emma." said a little girl to a
schoolmate, "wouldn't It bo nwful If

was the reply; "but then, wouldn't It

"Ah, my dear," said the philo
sophic Miranda, "the arrangemonts of

Jinks hns been indulging loo freely
In ardent spirits. At a street corner
his hat dropped Into the, gutter. Says
Jinks; "I know If I pick you up I'll
fall, an' you won't p-hlc me-hlc-up.
Goodnight." And ho walked off with
a smile of satisfaction, describing In
uumerablo zlg-7.ags as he went, leaving
his hat In the gutter.
"Sympathy," says John Paul, "Is
something which I never withhold from
those in trouble, whether they happen
to ba fi lends or npt; there's nothing

can go around shedding sympathy on
all skies lor weeks at a time, without
spending a cent, or being at much per
