Hearing:all the while the musie

As she Sung in sweetest . accents,
(Chat I since ItieOftenread—
"Hash, mrdear, lie still and slumber,
Rely an gels guard thy bed."
As I listened, recollections

Came, with all the gush of memory,

To those merry days of yore,
When I-knelt beside my mother,

That she taught my lips to utter,

This silo taught me; then she tell mo
Of its import, great and deep ;
After which I learned to utter
"how I lay me down to sleep."
Then it was with hands uplifted,
And in accents soft and mild,
That my mother aiked "Our Father,.

Years have passed, and that dear mother
Long has mouldered 'neath the sod,

Never has from memory fled;

MY PRIVATE SCHOOL
"Look at that!" cried my •grand
mother, striking an attitude Worthy
of Lady Macbeth, when she ad
dressed the fatal spot on her head;
this time, hoWever, it was only the
scissors, which, in falling, stood, up
right in the floor.
"I see. Its nothing uncommon,
" Did you ever know it to happen
that a stranger didn't come before
the day was out ?"
"I never noticed; somebody was
always coming for the matter of
"I tell yon that sign don't fail"
(my ~T andinother always used to
double negativesnegatives when she meant to
be emphatic); "most others-will but
that's true'as a book. .A.nd another
thing, there was a stranger =in my
tea to-night, a long one—that'shows
tas a man that's comin'. .Some folks
set a great deal by that sign; bid it
ain't to be mentioned the same day
with the sciasors standing up in the.
" I hope he will come soon, for the
storm will be here before him;", and
with the words the wind went wail
ing round the house, and the first
big drops beat against the window
Three score, years and ten had -not
taken the first bloom froM the ro
mance of my grandmother's charac
ter; it was as"fresh and green as in
her girlhood. Beggars heard of her
afar off, and ran to fall on the neck
of her charity.
She followed the advice of Lamb
without ever having read it. When
.a poor creature came before her she
staid not to inquire, whether the
" seven small children," in whose
name he implored her assistance,
-had a veritable existence, but cast
her bread upon the waters and lived
IN fact, she had cast so much bread
upon the waterii ii the course of her,
long life, and so small a, proportion
had-come back to her, that she had
nothing teft, for herself except, the
old farm •iind the gambrel roofed
Within its walls my father had
first-seen the light, and lived till he
went out to fight the world.. He fell
early in the strife ; and my mother
soon followed hiih; but not until she
had marked out my way in life, and
so fixed me in the groove of her
ideas that I had no 'choice left. I
went to 'a village academy till I was
old enough to enter the " Normal
School," for my destir:- 'vas to be . a
teacher. My little income hadto,l ,
eked out in some way; and of ;
work to which - a woman may i.urn
her hand, a .school, perhaps, o.vides
the burden. most equally between
body and mina.
When I graduated mygrandmoth
er left the old gambrel roof to see
rue do it, and carried nlO home with
- her for a '" breathing; spell " (as - she
said) before getting a plac6 to teach.
As to my future I was neither hap
py nor unhappy, but rather between.
At twenty life runs on with very lit
tle friction; therd is excitement
enough in mere youth to make liv
ing a Pleasure. •
• The evening drew ou with ever
increasing gusts of wind, and the
old house shook to its foundations,but
it clung gallantly to the great cen--
Aral chimney, which, being nearly as
broad as it: as high, could afford to
lie indifferent, when the wind and
weather came to blows and made a
night of it.
" I hope you don't mean- to sit up
fOr that somebody who is coming.
All signs fail in wet weather."
The wads. were scarcely spoken
*hen we heard the tread of .a horse
running at full speed down the'steep
hill above the house, then a crash of
the fence, and all was still.
We held our breath and listened.
Soon a man's step sounded low and
heavy, on the walk, and my -grand
mother rushed to open the door.
"Don't be scut," said the .famil
iar voice of one of our neighbors,
and he stumbled in, carrying a man
pale and lifeless in his-arms.
"Lay him right on the lounge—
get the camphor bottle--heße some
body sure enough—don'tjll tel e
again that signs ever fail. 11,'O1 is

'growing, into a- very strong feeling

It was BO With me, though I scarcely

and if he had died it would have
been a blow to me, albeit I had nev

It was the tenth day of the fever,
and he had beri motionless for a

me look up. His eyes were fastened
on me with a new expression. I

brought . a shadow to his face.

up stairs in quite a flutter of spirits.
Could it be possible that I was, to

I took it and glanced at Mr. Deane.
He sat - by the open window, reading

it out into the flower plat, and I ran
out to git it. It had not occurred

Then I 'read my own letter, end; in
it was my way of-escape.
Aunt Rachel wrote to 8;4 . that

her with . the .childre.n ?" She saw

arity with it had rather hardeeed
my heart: toward Aunt Rachel, but
now I was ready to lay all the stress
on her letter which it Would bear.
n "What will Mr: Deane say toyour
doin g away?" said my grandmother;
when I had impressed on her.mind
my duty to Aunt Rachel.
"I don't care.what he says."
" Lor 1" said my grandmother,
with 'a look which implied a two
hours speech at least.
" That letter was from his wife," I
said, looking anywhere but at hr.
She. ever answered 'a wordy but
jest kissed me on both eyes,: and
struck my hair tenderly for a minute
or two. Then we parted for the
night, and I - went away in the morn
ing before Mr. Deane was up.
Aunt Rachel was out of sight of
death's door " long before I reached
her, as I had confidently supposed
she would - be,' but she welcomed me
heartily, and the kisses of the chil
dren soothed somewhat the sore
spot in my heart.
For the next threeLdays the activ;-
ity of the " busy bee," long ago im
paled on a poetical pin, was not to

were any_ gifts of healing in mere
work, I was determined - to have
them Out of it; but the image of Mr.
: Deane was ever in my mind's eye,
and as people say who have not
been to the "Normal," I got better
fast. •-• •
Last of all I went hui;kleberrying
with the children, and picked as for

" There's a strange man coming
across the field," said one of them.
I looked up after a minue, and
took Mr.-Deane's offered handy
"If you teach'school as you pick
berries your fortune Rill soon be
made," he said, with a glad look in
his eyes which scorned to banish that
dreadful wife of his to tho uttermost
nuts of the earth.
" How did you find me ?"
"By my wits, chiefly. Your
grandmother was as mysterious over
your departure as if you had gone
into a convent; but when I told her

"What is your good news ?"
"I have heard of a school that

"I am ef.ceedingly obliged to yon."
"It is a private school and very

all that I know of you, I have. con

" Yes, if you are sure of my fit-
"I liacen!t a doubt of it. •I said

entirely forgotten it.

she can. give or refuse--Lher heart.
- Her beauty, her wit, her accomplish

return that when you look open her,
your eyes shall speak .a mute devo
