When we pia because we miss each other,
And do not understand

I kiss you, dear. foiall such pain

We have blessed each oilier always, -

cold sweeps of the"inter wind came
surging round the eo ner
It-was Thanksgivin
ter a day of busy papal . ,
morrow's festivities, ever:,
settled down into quiet at I.
Rhoda had heartily enjo -,
excitement of helping her aun „
1 Whom she lived, arrange rooms
the expected guests, and .prep.
flotvcri for the tabies, and mantle
putting graceful, girlish touches upon
all-the adornments. Towards night;
aunts, and uncles, and cousins had
poured in from the different trains,
and Rhoda's brother Ralph, her es
pecial admiration and adoration, ha.d
surprised her by comingfrom his col
ege to spend the holiday with her
Altogether it had been a happy day
and was a joyous prelude to the hymn
or praise and thanks, which Rhoda
felt sure she.should sing out gladly
on IhVmorroty.
But it was just a trifle dull - alone
in the parlor to-night ; Aunt Carry
had taken the girls, her own daugh
ters, elf up stairslor a confab, and
others of the aunts athi cousins were
singing lullabys in their rooms to
protesting babyhood; Uncle Boyed
was smoking up in the library with
the husbands and brothers, and
Ralph, after a little confidential con
verse with Rhoda, had . rushed down
to the Continental to thee!, some of
his chums.
It looked very pleasant over the
way at the Welden girl's house ; the
gas was lighted in the parlor, the
blind 4 up, anti iliey seemed to be hay...
ing a jolly time. Some one had told
Rhoda that Lelty Welden's bean was
coming on from the West, to spend
Thanksgiving with her, and Rhoda
tlkseried him in the group.
Heigho-ho !" sighed Rhoda, "he
dpn't rush off to meet a - comrade :cs
soon as he has arrived. I wish I had
a lover ! They milnt be very nice.
wonder if I will have one next
Thanksgiving ?". • ' •
Just then, a voice in the darkness
made her start with the words.
" 1E- you love me, you'll do some
thing 1 want you to very much."
EU it was only Cousin Gilbert
who had spoken, and as he was but
fourteen, and only up to her shoul
der, even a cousinly flirtation was
out of the question.
" Well, what is it, Gil ?" laughed '
Rhoda ; "' faint heart never won fair
lady,' you know; ask and see if
will not grant your favor," . •
" Rhoda, dear, it's awfully stupid
up in the library, they're talking
stocks, and if I go where mamma is,
she'll want me to go to bed ; and
,Rhodie comingcloser and coaxing
in rough, boy f;shicin, " I never saw

if he is only a boy, and I shan't, feel

• A brisk walk, with (kilbett's, con
stant boyish chatter and
seeing the - long continuous line . of
lamps, that seemed a - band of light
along the straight stretch of streets,
soon brought them down into the
more central portion of; and
almost before she, Rhoda
found herself in a crowd of men and
boys, who appeared to think that
keeping Thanksgiving eve consisted
in shouting and jostling and pushing
every one - with whom thek . came in
contact. Presently a loud clang and
boom rang Out upon the rtituidthen
a rush on the part Of the crowd, fol
lowed .by a rattle and clatter of noisy
engines :Acing the street, and a whirl
of harrying people, with cries of "fire,
fire !" s opon their lips, flew past.
" o,\lthoda! I never sllw a ;
come letos ge !" and Gilbert caught
her by the hand, had she obeying a
wild sort of \ irnpulse which -she could
scarcely understand, and felt power
less to control; followed, him until
they stood .at last in the midst of a
shouting crowd, far down in the city,
watching the raging flames that'now
burst forth from the \ building from
whence the alarm had sounded'. •
There was a _fascination ,in the'
sight of the' long . eurling, \torigues of
fire that licked the wOls of\he house
caressingly, and . a terrible grandeur
in the final topple and the crash of
the mighty fortress of flames... Rhoda
stool as spOlb,ound in the sight` i\ as
was her companion, until some one
rudely pushed by her, peering into\
her face and laughingly addressed
her as "Little Red •Ridingliond,"
then. she suddenly became aware that
it was.night, and that they two were
far from home, and alone. n
"Come, Gilbert, cone," -she whis
pered, quickly pulling him away; "We
must go home;" and hurrying through
'the nerowd,she discovered, upon reaeh
ing the first Open street, that :they
were at least two miles from home,
and from a clock in , a store 'near by
she saw Viet it was couSiderrbly af
ter ten.
" Have you any -money, Gilbert,
we must ride home at -once ?n" she
asked, after feeling in her own po let
and finding her purse was not there.
" Ten cents ;. butt:hat' isn't enough,
is it? Can't we walk, I'm not tired ?"
" I don't believe - wecan ; I. am cold
and tired, both!' 0 Gilbert! why
did we come ?" and there was a
a slight, suspicion of ..tears in the
trembling, frightened voice, as Bhp
da realized their uncomfortable i•Osi
tion;_two miles from home, after ten
o'clock, and not enough money to
ride ; it was not a pleasant state 'of

their gaze, "Gilbert, we Must get
into a ear; I will explitin to the con
ductor, and we can pay the rest of
the fare AO-morrow." •
But there were .no cars in sight,
and it was growing colder every mo-.
went. After waiting some time upon
the corner,
,Rhoda cried :
There is a policeman, Gilbert, I
will ask him how soon•the car will be
along; ", and, timidly accosting the I
lacer who stood, near by, and who i
appeared to be noticing their evident I
distress, Rhoda was informed that I
in consequence' of the tire„ that line
of cars was stopped. t
But," added the ollieer politely, ;

Rhoda4:owed and said: -
"'You, are very kind; I do not
think I could walki - backond you see
we . -haven't any money ;.but I will
recollect your station,: and.," looking
up at his' cap, " oh, .yes 1 I see your
number is 79. Remember, Gilbert,
policeman No. 79. Thank you, very
much, for the loan !" and; taking her
cousin's arm, Rhoda hurried on tw
ward the car. . 1 .
" I - tell. you, you've got first-eltss
policemen here, Rhoda. Wasn't he
a stunner ?" cried - Gilbert: . as they
reached the ear,'and he paid their
fare but of the silver piece. " - I'll re
turn the money the first thing in the
morning ; it will be a real Thanks
giving, won't it ? I don't know when
.1 ever felt more grateful; why, we
might have been arrested as tramps,
and talii:n to the station-house." .
Upon , reaching home the two rtin-
rd the
aways found • that their htay had oc
much consternation in the
household. • Rhoda's brother Ralph,
stood Upon the door-step, anxiously
awaiting their appearance. not a lit
tle disappointed and alarmed to find :
his sister gone-upon his return from,''
the hotel.
"-Why, Rhoda! how imprudent to
be -out so late! :Where in the world"
'=he began, but Gilbert rushed into
such . an enthusiastic _description or
the great • fire they had wLnessed,
that Ralph was forcedi4o, laugh off
"the little -brotherly scolding he had
Ibeen preparing. ,
" And it . was just awful ! " said
Gilbert; " and we would have. had to
walk all the way back, two tiles in
the cold, if"—a look 'from Rhoda;
whOtlid not„reprciced fur
tber,changed his finishing - plb-sea--
*vice "if webad not hire rude."
-" That is an indisputable fact, sure
ly," laughed Aunt C:4ry; "hut
allY think it is abouttime we all had_
some. rest now;, you, Glilbert,qtre
sipating . too freely,' and Rhin - la,' I
want you to get some beauty sleep,
for Ralph tells me hi's friend; Captain
Hardy, willi . dine with us to-morrow,
and . you certainly will want to ap
pear at your best."
• , Thanksgiving morning dawned
bright andclear. and directly ! after
breakfast. after a little whispered
consultation with Rhoda, Gilbert
started down town to find the officer
with had- been so kind the night
fore. Ile Cad not return in - time to
aceompany his cousinh. to church,
and Rhoda felt certain] qualms of
anxiety over his delay. • .
I ought to have gone with.ltim,"
she kept saying over and over to her
self.. " Oh, dear, what a bother boys
are It is all his own fault for in
; gisting . upen.running to the fire; and
now, perhaps, he . has 'got joit, and I
shall be blamed! "
Ralph Bruce wondered what made
sister so absent-minded and quiet
all4lie'Morning.; but : as he, too, was
feeling 'annoyed arid, anxious over the
non-appearance Of his friend Captain
Hardy, he'did not question her dui

built his but within a hundred ,yards
of my own house, and I !iae, never
rung the bell at any time in the night
or motning that his horn did 'not an
swer in live minutes. But two years
ago he got religicm, and commenced
what he termed family prayers—that.
praykg. in hiS hut every moinin ,,
and evening, nd when he began his
prayers, it was , 'impossible to tell
when lie would' stop, especially if. (as
he termed it) he,;, got hippy. Then
he we'd() sing, add pray, and halloo
for an hour r r two together, that you
might hear him nearly a mile off.
Au l 11u . would pray for int and my
wife burl children, and our whole &te
lly connections to the third genera
tion. and sometimes when we would
have visitors'„Moses' prayers would
interrupt the .conversation of the'
whole 'company. The women would
cry and the children would cry. and
it would get,me almost frantic, and
even after, I bad retired; it would
sometime , e almost daylight before
I could go to sleep, for it appeared
to me that could hear Moses pray
for three hours
,iifter he had finished.
I bore it as long as I, i•ould, and then
forbid his praying any more—and
-Moses prornised, obedience, but,soon
transgressed, and mi. rule is never to
whip, brit, wheneveila negro becomes
incorrigible, I sell Ir. This keeps
thetia in better subjection, arid hi less
ble tt whipping: knd I par-
and will givelou the $1400.,
Mr. B. and \Col. Ch then went .to
B.'s atare„ drew \up Oa irritings and
closed the sale, after which they re
turned to the vessel, and Mr, B. ap
proached the negro, who sat with his
eyes fixed upon the deck, wrapped ins
the meditation of the most asvful fore
bodings, and said •
-1". Well •
, Moses, I have bought you."
Moses made a bow, and every mus
cle-of his face worked with emotion
as.he replied :
"Is sus, massa Where, is I
gwine, mesas? Is I gwine to Geer-
• ,
":No.;am a merchant •in this
city. Yonder is my store, and I have
purchased your wife and: children,
too, that you may not be separated:"
• " Bress 'God for dat ; And massa,
kin I go to meetin' sometimes ? "
-". Yes Moses, you can go to chureh
three 'times on Sabbath and every
night in the week, and you, can pra.
as often as you .choose, and a.
long as you choose, and every time
you pray,_whether at home' or in the
church, I want you to pray for me,
my wife and all! my children ; for if
you - are . a good man your prayers will
do me ncr harm, and kneed them'
'very much ;.and.if you wish to, you
may pray for everybody of my name
in the State. It will not injure them.
. When Mr. B. was dealing out these
privileges to Moses, the
.negro's - eyes
danced in their- sockets and his full
heart laughed outright for gladness,
exposing two rows of as even; clean
ivories as any African can , boast ;
and his heart's response was, • ' Bress
God, 'Rep' God all de time, and bress
you, too, massa ; 111osei.neber tinks

:Joseph in de Egyp'.” And after Mo
ses had poured a few blesSings Upon
Col. C. and hidden him a warm adieu.
and requested him to give his love .
and farewell to his mistress, the chip/, dren and. all the servants, he followe'd '
Mr. B. to the store, to enter upouthe
functions of his new office.
The return of the schooner brought
to Moses his wife . andlchildren.
Early the next spring. as Mr. B
was one day standing
,in the store
dbor, he saw a man leap upon the
wharf from the deck
,Of a vessel, and
walk hurriedly towards the store.
He soon recognized hittras Colonel
C. They exchanged salutations, and
to the Colonel's inquiry after Moses, ,
Mr. B. replied - that he was up stairs
measuring ; gram, and invited. him to
walk up and see him • Soon Mr. B.'s
attention -was arrested by a confused,
noise above. • He listened and heard
an unusual shuffling of feet, some one
sobbing violently add some onetalk
ing very hurriedly ; and when he re
flected upon Colonel C.'s movement
and , the peculiar expression of. his'
countenance, he became alarmed and
went up to see What was transpiring.
— When he reached - the head of the
stairs he was startled at seeing . Mo
ses in the middle of the floor, down
upon one knee, with, his arm around
the Colonel's waist,and talkin - g most
rapidly, 'while the Colonel stood
weeping audibly. So soon as the
Colonel could sufficiently control his
feelings, 'he told Mr. B. that he had
tieveibe'en able to free himself from
the influence of dose's prayers,.and
that during the paSt year he . and- his
wife and children had been converted
'to God.
Moses responded: " Bress God,
Massa C., dee I way up 114,1 neber
forgit you n my prayers; I olles put
do ole massa 'side de new one. Press
God, dis make Moses tink 'bout, Jo
seph in de Egyp' again."
The Colonel then stated to Mr. B.
that his object- in coming to Balti-
More was to buy Moses and his fam
ily back again. But Mr. B. assured
him that was out of the question, for
he could ,not part with him; and he
intended to manumit Moses and his
wife at forty and his chilaren at thir
ty years of age.
\ Moses was not far- wrong in his
reference to Joseph. . For when Jo 7
sepli\was sold into Egypt, God over
ruled 'it to his blesslings that were far
beyond\his expectations-; so with
Moses; he\ eventually proved the in
strument. ilk 'God's hands, of saving
the soul of the-man who sold . him.

The height of sea waves , qnes-
Con - that has been much 'and not
always satisfactorily discussed: \ One .
ditb ulty arises from a .misunder•
standing., of terms. Some - mean liy
the height of a wave the actual el& \
ration - above the surfacefof the sea
in smooth weather, others mean the
distance between the bottom of the
hollow-of a wave to its crest;- and
that seems to me the only rational,
practical way to arrive at any sdre
data. Taking tlial, then, as the
mode of measuring Iv - Ise-heights, it.
may be said AtlantiOvaves in a gale
otter ; rise twenty-five feet ; thirty
teet'is by' no means uncommon in
mid-ocean, and the., second wave
sometimes heaves
. to a height of
thir!ylfive to forty feet. Storm-waves
have a curious rhythm of 'motion,'
At intervals three waves larger than
usual rush .by, of which the middle
one is the highest. At-longer inter
.vals five large waves come together,
and very rarely .seven. They often
conic just as a squall begi::s to mod
erate, springing up elastically. from
the pressure of the wind. So.ile
times the fury of the wind rarely
beats down the sea, and lashes and
tears it into foam or spoon-drift, that
sv.-eeps-over the ocean a- white mist,
like snow blown over a frozen lake,
and, when- such a tremendous squall
lulls, the waves instantly rise . to
enormous dimensions. The length
and form of waves depends upiin the
room in which they have to run, and
the direction of the tides. They-ate
short and small seas or
lines. Among the Channel islands
counter-current • tides sometimes
raise the WaSEES to over forty feet in .
height:, These • estimates, the result
of long . and careful - observatioiis,
WS been confirmed by tbe.cOmpar
ing them with the . experipntal of
others 'who have also given th sub
ject. careful study, among yrlom
may , mention the captain of one of
the Canard steamers.

In hurricanes of course the waves
are -far more tumultuous and broken
and near the storm-center, pyramidal
in form, owing to the contrary forces
or cross-seas, and 'their height is
greater. It is not uncommon, - off
the Cape of Good Hope, to see be
waves sixty feet high ; but they come
such a distance they have a long,
easy ascent, which renders them gee.:
erally, less dangerhus than the more
rugged waves at the Atlantic. On the
Shetland, isles the breakers, rolling
from a distance -of Several thousand
miles, have a perpendicularheight of
sixty feet when they heave on shore.

The Rev: Matthew Hale Smith, in
a sermon ti) his congregation in New
York, said there was not .a single
amusement on the face of the earth
which has received the ban of all na-
loons to so great an extent as dancing;
To illustrate this be quoted from the
Bible.' "This girl, Berodis'a - daugh

riot. murder and immorality. • The

,Of Esther

his male friends. The Wine-cup passed

should be brought in. What for?
Ordinary amusements -would not'suf- .
flee. Dancing was in order. The Queen
refused to appear before.such a com

thousands of Christian women in New
York to-day would. do if tpey had a
chance: From the time .of Cain down
