A row of little faces by the bed,
A row of little hands upon the spread,
A row of little roguish eyes all closed,
A row of little naked feet exposed.
A gentle mother leads them in their praise,
Teaching their feet to tread in heavenly ways,
And takes this lull in childhood's tiny tile.
The little errors of the day to chide.
No lovelier sight this side of heaven is seen,
And angels hover o'er the group serene ;
Instead of odor in a censer swung,
There floats the fragrance of an infant's tongue
Then tumbling headlong into waiting beds,
Beneath the sheets they hide their timid heads
Till slumber steals away their idle fears,
And like a peeping bud each face appears.
All dressed like angels in their gowns of white,
They're wafted to the skies in dreams of night,
And heaven will sparkle in their eyes at morn;
And stolen glances all their ways adorn.
The dismal December night was closing,
with starless gloom, over the spires and
chimney tops of the city-- the binding mist
of snowflakes was wreathing its white pall
over all, and the wind, murmuring sadly
through the streets, seined to have au
almost lannan wail in his moan.

at the foot of flight of steps, in the shad

as he checked hituself abruptly, the bundle
erected itself into something human in
shape and looked at him through wild.

'' Whoare you?" he demanded, on the
impulse of a inokmut. •
"Only me. sir---Tittle Tess."
" Please give MP a penny, sir !" tried
the child, suddenly subsiding into the reg
ular professional whine of her trade
" Only a penny.''
"Where do you iive?''
"I don't live nowht re. ,ir

"Took up?"
"Sent to the Island, sir?' -
" Are you a boy or a girl ?,-
(For the creatures's tingled leeks and
ramd garb gave no clue to its sex.)
" Pm a girl, sir."
" You ought to be ashamed of yourself,
begging in the streets," said Mr. Terryn,
severely. " Why don't you work?"
As he approached his own door a bright
child's face peeped out between the cur
tains, and as Mr. Terryn entered the
cheery sitting room, he could not but
think with a remorseful pang of the shiv
ering bundle of rags under the brick arch
way beyond.
" It's none of my husiness, ,, he thought.
"I dare say the police will pick the poor
little elf up, and take her where she'll be
better off."
But Mr. Terryn's conscience was less
adamantine than he had given it credit for
being. It pricked him sorely as he sat
toasting his slippered feet before the bright
embers--it whispered to him as he listened
to the lullaby wherewith his wife was lull
ing the babe to sleep upon her breast. Had
little Tess ever known a mother's care, or
heard a mother's cradle song? And she
could scarcely have been six years old,
Where are you going, my dear?" guts
oned his wife, as he rose up suddenly.
"Out into the street. There was a—a
child there—a little girl, crouching on
some steps - -"
" A child? homeless? And on such
a night as this? Oh, Herbert, you should
have brought her here!"
Five minutes afterwards Mr. Terryn
was out in the driving whirlwinds of snow
bending over the small stray who was
huddled. up, just where he had left her.
"liere—child—where are you?"
But there was no answer. Little Tees
was benumbed and stupified by the cold.
He lifted her up, a poor little skeleton
wrapped in a thin coating of rags, and
feeling strangely light in his arms, and
carried her home. Mrs. Terryn met him
at the door.
Oh, Herbert, what a poor little starved
wretch! I ler hands arc like bird's claws!"
Charley looked on in breathless interest
at the process of feeding, warping and re
storing some vitality to the torpid object.
When little Tess opened her eyes, it was
to the glow of a warm fire and the mellow
sparkle of gaslhts.
"Am I dead?" cried the child, "and
is this Heaven?" .
"Poor little creature!" said Mrs. Ter
ryn, bursting into tears.
" Tesora" her name proved to be—a
sweet Italian synonym for the word " trea
sure," and a treasure she was, in gentle
Mrs. Terryn's eyes, especially after her
little babe was dead and buried.
“How Tesoragrows?” said Mr. Terryn
suddenly, on one day as the beautiful girl
came in, rosy and smiling, from a walk.
" Why she is as tall as a grown womarill ,
"She is a grown woman," said Mrs.
Terryn, with a smile.
",How old is she?"
“Sixteen, day before yesterday

"It is true, my dear," said his wife.
•• We are getting to be old people, now!"
•• I wonder what will become of Tesora,"
said Mr. Terryn, musingly. " !zhe would

said Charles Terryn, reso

"Nonsense!" ejaculated Mr. Terryn.
"Charley," she said, when the indig
' naut father had jerked himself out of the
room, "don't waste your breath in argu
ing with your father. Argument nev e r
conquered yet, in such a case as this."
'' But what am 1 to do?"
"!lave you spoken to Tess yet?"
" No."
" Wait then
manage it!"
So Mrs. Terry]] gave little dinner parties
and select soirees, and '• brought out''
Tesora, according to the regular pro
gramme. She made a sensation. Mrs.
Terryn had known that she would. Tesora
was a belle—a queen of fashion. Suitors
congregated round her.
" Wel!, re••,. , said Mr. Terryn, one
night—he was getting wonderously proud
of his adopted daughter's success iu the
world of sotictv--" arc you going out to

"I thought Charley had taken a boo. at

"I promised Colonel Randolph tir::t,"
said Tesora, languidly playing, with her
" And how about to-morrow night. I
suppose Charley could get his tickets
" I am so sorry, sir, lint I am engaged
fur to-morrow night:'
Mr. Terryn rose and walked restlessly
up and down the room. Ile was a man
much guided by the opinion of his fellow
men. Tesora must be a treasure, else why
this competition among the young mil
lionaires Ibr her society!
"Look here, Tess—Charley will he so
" I can't help it. Let Inc see"— and she
glanced at the tablets—" Friday is the

"Fiddlestick!'' muttered the old gentle
man, uneasily. "It seems to rae you're
getting, to be a great belle, IVliss!"
"Stu I, papa!" said Tess laughing.
" but you see I ant your own little girl
And she gave him a little coaxing kiss.
" My own littlegirl—yes—but what will
you become when Colonel Randolph or
Dayton L'Estrange, or seine other of
these scamps takes you away from tre !"
Tesoro, blushed until the rose- el, h. r
cheek was like carnation.
"They will not, papa."
"Won't they? I'm not altogether so
sure of that."
But the next afternoon he came Lome
from his oftke with a puzzled face.
They have come, Tess?"
"What have come?"
The offers of marriage— two of by
Jupiter—Colonel Randolph and Mr. ',up

" I--I must think of it, papa."

" iVell, sir?"
"You won't leave dear? 'Think
how desolate the old house ‘viil be without
Tesora was silent—her head dropped.
"Father," said Mrs. Terryn. gently.
" let the girl decide for herself. We have
no right to stand between her and a home
and a husband of her own."
" But she might have a Lome and a hus
band of her own here!" burst in 'Mr.
Terryn. "That is-- I mean—Charley
"I have refused Charley to-day!" said
Tesora, calmly.
Refused Charley! And why`?"
" Because I have reason to believe that
his suit was pressed without the approval
of his father. Oh, sir, could you think
that after all your kindness, I could steal
your son's dutyaway from you! I would
rather die!"
"Spoken like yourself, Tess," said Mrs.
Terryn going to her and kissing her.
"Tess, do you love him!" eagerly q ue, s _
tioned the father.
That has nothing to do with the ques
tion, sir," she answered, reservedly.
"But I want to know," he insisted.
I do love him, sir, then."
" And you have refused him einy b.'-
cause I didn't approve?"
Yes, sir.''
"But I do approve, Tess! It would
make mu the happiest old father in the
world, if I coma call you both, children, in
real truth."
Charles Terryn rose from his scat alai
came eagerly forward.
" Tesora—dearest—you hear him! t Met?
more I ask you to be my wife!"
And Tesora hid her face on his shoul
der, weeping—but Tesora was very happy
" But, my love," said Mrs. Tcrryn,
softly,' , what has wrought such at:lunge in
your sentiments?"
"I—l dont't know,'' said the old gen
tleman, evasively. "I say, Tess, what

"Tell them, sir," spoke up Charley,
" that she has a previous engagement!''
And so the mother's management pre
