From the souls unresting 'grow,
Grow on for the good or evil,
Sunshine stream'd or darkness hnrl'd;
For the hand that rocks the cradle

Long! before she was done with

over thn joke. •
"A pretty kettle of fist. 1 " said
George,' rolling over the floor,- .and

with another dismal groan.
" And iow on earth do you expect
us to stay and take the consequen

serious. I" I am for taking myself off
instantly! I rather face a masked
battery than one pretty teacher, after
making such fools of 'ourselves."
" I doWt care if you had," answer
ed his Sister, indignantly. " Tue
only wayl is to brave it out, both of

I'll find 'a way to silence Bridifel, and
it is a sbject Eva will not care to
have discussed, and fortunately my
husband is away. So go to bed and
rest contented."
She showed them to the room she
had intended them to occupy, and
soon all 'was quiet.
Bleanivhile their brother Sam had
reached the depot a few minu tes too
late. He found the tram he was to
have taken gone, but upon consulting
a time-table he ascertained that
another train started two hours later,
and .so he divided to take it. He
figurrd to himself, as he impatiently
crowded into an empty seat and was
being whirled along - at a rapid rate,
how supgly his brothers had en
sconcedithemselves in the best mom,
which by right belonged to him, be
I being the eldest, and consummated
a'plan to get even with tbem.
Sometime after midnight ho was
deposited at Itollyttuorne, and reaCh
ing his sister's house ho scouted
,around until be found a way of en
trance into the kitchen, whore he de
poiiited his luggage and removed %is
boots. Then he qnietly , stole np
stairs and opened the door of the
best mein., Sure enough, thought
be, "my fine chaps, you are in , clo
ver! " for there were not to be mis
taken signs of the' room being occu
pied. Garments were lying upon
chairs, and the bed was pressed Iv
slumbering forms.
To,think of coping with their unit
ed strength by dragging them forth,
was not practicable, but there stood
tlfe pitcher of water, and he -knew
that a good dousing with the icy.ilnid
would bring them out quick enough:
"If I can,t have my old quarters,"
he chuckled, "you shan't, that I am
determined on. So, here goes."
He lifted the pitcher, approached
the bed, raised it high, and suddenly
dashed the entire contents upon the
sleepers. , ' -
Snell a torrent of screams as he
bad never before heard rang through
the noose, and before Sam could col
lect his scattered senses door after
door opened, and Hannah, George
and John rushed in—in scanty ap
parel—Hannah with a frightened
look on her face, and a lamp in her
hand that revealed the entir6 scene.
There, sitting up in bed, with her
hair drippling like a mermaill, her
night dress deluged, her face color
less and looking terrified; was the
schoolmistress, and there was Sam,
with the empty pitcher in his hand;
the very picture of imbecility, staring
about like an idiot at Miss Eva and
the havoc be had made.
Hannah,George and John instant
ly comprehended the • situation,. and
the latter, at the command . of their
sister, dragged Sam away, while she
assisted' the drenched and terrified
girl, to dry her clothing,. and then
took her to her own room. and bed,
explaining for the - second_ time the
Mishaps, of the night. •
" I'll keep you willi i ruenow, my
child," she said, though : th diffieul,.

Hannah kissed her charge and
went down to see ab t the boys,

who, as soon as they w re - fairly shut

Miss Eva was not .visible. at the
breakfast table the next - morning,
and Hannah announced that 'she was
sick with a severe cold; whereupon
George groaned oat and called for a
handful of peas to put in Sam's shoes,

contrite, and John declared he want

had the- unruly crew under her
thntnt for once in her life, and: had
the 'satisfrOon also of seeing' them
behave with something of dignity.
They appeared to never forget that
there was an invalid in,- the house,
