THE FACES WE BEET.
Oh, the faces we meet
In the crowded street.
With their smiling lips or their weary eye;
And the ciouds of care,
W'hich Ihey often wear
As they hurry swiftly by.
There are faces as gay
As the waves that play
On the sunny sand of an islet green ;
There are eyes as bright
As the jewels' light.
That falls ou the brow of a queen.
There arc IresseJ of hair
Like a golden snare.
And Ihey catch many Leans in. their meshes
There are locks like the night
On s mountain height
Ere the day-star heralds the dawn.
There arc brows as free
As a laud-locked sea.
No storms have driven, no tempest tossed ;
And brows as black
As the desolate track
Which the fire fiend has crossed.
Thre are lips whose smile,
Without malice or guile.
Light the fare as the sun lights Ibe sei ;
And lips where a sneer
Chills lite blood as with fear,
At its da'k malignity.
Oh, (lie fices we meet
Iu the crowded street.
With careworn brows or gladsome eye :
Are pictures of light, made
Of light and shade.
As they pass us swiftly by.

They had graduated at a very fashion

over, they were called beautiful.
Judge Lanark was the father of these
girls. lie was a man of means, though
iiot of large wealth. He had been a
successful lawyer, and was now upon
t he bench ; and ids s.icial position was
of the very highest. Governors had
bceu stuong his clients, aud Senators
looked to him for counsel and assist

'To what?' cried Mrs. Lanark.

'Aye,' added Kate 'I will not consider

'Good, good for Kate !'
Isabel and Rertha smiled derisively.
Their looks plainly showed that they
considered the thing rediculous,
Mrs Lanark looked in surprise and
deprecation, lt seemed a reflection upon
her educational care of her daughters.
Kate saw the look, she answered :
'I do not mean a loaf of such soggy
stuff as some of our friends make with
cream of tartar aud saleratus, nor yet a
loaf of the puffy stuff that comes to us
from the baker's, but I mean a loaf of
such bread my own mothor used to as
bake when I was a wee child.'

'Good,' again cried the Judge. 'Go

Wasto a dozen barrels of flour, if nec
essary only bring me a grand good
loaf of bread of your own making and
baking in the end !'
Mis. Lanark thought it foolish, and
Isabel and Bertha characterized it as
very childish aud whimsical. They fau
cied that it smacked of the nursery and

The following winter Isabel and Ber
tha spent in the city. Kate remained at
home, because l.er mother could tiot
spare them all. During their visit to
the metropolis, Uie elder sisters made
their fiiends and formed a few pleasant
associations. Among others, they met
with Roland Arch worth, a young banker
whose father had been Judge Lanark's
classmate and chum at college. Iu their
lelters home they had informed their
father of this fact, aud tho Judge, re
membering t!:e elder Archwoith with
treasured love and esteem, and knowing
the sou to be the occupant of an esahed
position iu society had invited the young
man to visit him at his country house.
And thus it happened that when sum
mer came R daud Arch worth came np to
Lanark's pleasant boms. He was a
young man of five and twenty years,
mid to use the expression of one who I
knew him well, 'every inch a man.'
lie had inherited a fortune from his
j father, and was now a puttier in the j
j house which his father had founded, j
i There was no speculation in business
wLich he followed. w:t w-u;s
capita! fully equal to the greatest possible
emergency, the house pursued a legit
imate course aud its wealth was con
stantly and surely increasing.
Is it a wonder Mrs Lanark's heart
fluttered when the prospect dawned upon
her that the young banker might pos
sibly seek one of her daughters for a
wife J She cared uot whether he choose
Isabel or Bertha. They were both ac
complished, and either would make a
worthy mate for him.
And we do not do the Ju lge injustice
when we say that eveu he allowed him
self to hope that the son of his classmate
urght find it in his heart to love one of
the giils. He had studied the young
man's character well and lie believed it
to be one of the "purest V.nd best.
And Isabel and Bertha. Of course
there was rivalry between them, but
they agreed they would abide the issue.
If Isabel were selected to preside over
the borne of the millionaire. Bertha
would uot complain ; and should Bertha
prove the fortunate ono, Isabel was pre
pared to yield."
One thing happened very unfortunate
ly. On the very day cf Archworth's ar
rival, the cook bad been taken Bick.
What was to be donel
'Never mind,' said Kate with a smile,
'I will take the reins until the cook
gets well.' .
'But for mercy's sake,' implored Isa
bel, don"t let Mr. Archworth know it !
He belongs to a sphere which would be
shocked by such a gross imprnpiiety.
He would look upon us as belonging to
the canaille '
But there was no present help for it,
and Kate went into the kitchen and took
command of the forces in that quarter.
'Will you have some of this cake, Mr.
Archworth,' asked Mrs. Lanark, lifting
the silver ba-ket of frosted niceties.
'No,' replied the visitor ; with a smile.
If you will let me exercise my own whim
you will please me. This plain bread is
a luxury which I do not often meet. It
takes me back to my boyhood's days. I
have not eaten such siuce I ate the bread
which my own mother made. If ever
I keep house for myself I think I shall
ask you to send me your cook.'
For the life of them they conld not
help the betrayal of emotion. Poor
Kale, who sat exactly opposite tbb
speaker, blushed until it seemed as
though all the blood in her body were
running into her face while Isabel and
Bertha trembled as they would tremble
had they found themselves unexpectedly
upon the verge of a frightful precipice.
The Judge laughed outright.
'You get our cook into your house and
you'd find you'd caught a taitar, my
boy,' said the Judge. And then to
change the subject he added - quickly :
I remember your mother rery well
Roland, and I have eaten her bread.'
And thus the conversation softened
down into the memory of other days.
MAY 29 1372.
Touching Roland's associations with
Lanark's daughters, he seemed to enjoy
tbsocietyof them all. If he seemed
more eager to talk r with otiethan the

At first kate had been startled tcr-

upon her ear, and when she saw, as by

No matter what Roland replied, he

He evidently longed to linger in the
kitchen, but propriety foibile, and, with
more of his ical feelings in his looks
than in his speech, he retired.
A few days thereafter the Touiier
banker sought the Judge in his study.
and said as he took a seat, that he had
something important to say.
'I come,' he said, 'to ask of you that
I may seek the hand of your daughter.'
The Judge was agreeably surprised.
He had fancied that of late the youth
had been growing cold toward his

and me there need be no beating about
the bush. I should be both proud and
happy to welcome you as my son

'Of the two?' repeated Roland.
'Ah ; is it Isabel or Bertha 1
'Neither, sir. it is Kate I want.'
'Kate 1' cried the old man in blank
astonishment. But quickly a glad light
danced in his eyes.
'Yes, Judge, your Kate is the woman
I want if I cau win her.'
'But, my dear boy, how in the world
did you manage to find my pearl, my
ruby, among the household jewels 1
VV'here and when have you discovered
the priceless worth of tflat sweet child J'
'1 discovered it first in the kitchen.
Judge ; I first fell irrevocably and truly
iu love with her when I found her with
her white arms bare, making bread I
have known her better since. It is your
Kate I want.'
God bless yon, my boy. Go and
win her if you can. And be sure, you
gain a treasure.'
'Roland went away, and half an hour
afterward, the supernal light that danced
in his eyes told the story of success.
And Kate when closely questioned,
confessed that tbe first flame of real
love which burned in her bosom for Ro
land Archworth, was kindled by the
deep and true element of mauhood which
he had displayed on that early morning
in tbe kitchen.
