Flowers for the humble poor,
Flowers for the weak and-lone ;
Let them gently, gently fall
Where the weeds of toil are sown j
Lifting up foul discontent
From the lonely tenement.
As the fainting toilers there
Catch a breath of Heaven's air.
Flowers : lay them by the bed,
Where the restless sick are lying ;
Let their freshness heal the air.
Wounded by the sufferer's sighing ;
Let his eye a moment rest
Where bis seeing may be blessed.
Ere they mingle their sweet breath,
With the heavy oue of death.
Flowers for the rich and proud ;
Lay them in the costly room,
Where art's thick luxuriant air.
May from nature catch perfume
And like whispering angels start
I'i'y in the rich man's heart
Pi'y for some humble one.
Who of flowers and fruits hath none.
Flowers for eich one of earth,
Under and above the sod.
That the dead iray sweeter sleep.
And the living think of God.
When we from our walks of sin
See where his soft steps have been.
Leaving these to bless our eyes.

HISS HIGGIXS'S MAN.
For thirty years Miss Iliggins Lad
looked uuder her bed every Light, and
Lad never found a man there yet ; still
she looked. Whether it was fear that
impelled that deathless r search or a
fatility that was beckoning her to her
fate, I know not. It would seem, Low
ever, ti he the former, for she had offen
been heard to observe : "That of all the
abominations on earth a man is the most
Indeed at the infoin al tea drinkings
of the allied forces of Chesterfield the
three Misses Wheehr and to MUses
Jones, ehe had excelled them all in the
withering tone with which ehe would re
peat : "Matt ! man !" and no oue could
breathe greater defiance at tliii foemau
than rhe. It was at one of these tea
parties that they Lad entered a solemn
compact that, in event of Women's Rights
giving either of these allies sovereign
I'Oww of the nation, an Kastern law was
to be by them imported aud improved,
and husbands buried with the dead bod
iea of iheir wives
As Eunice II logins well remarked :
"That would be an end to widowers
pretty lively." And with this remark
the llyson flowed, and the. waeeail went
on with such spirit, that Aurelia "Wil
der, the most rad cal, added another
clause : "That the children of widowers
should be throwed io too, and not be a
botherin' other women.' This was
also well received.
Now if one thinks Miss Eunice Hig-
(gins was a woman devoid of virtues
Pitj them; tbej
j utterly mistaken. She had assisted a
drunken father through the world till he
made his exit, sustained aud supported
a feeble mother, aud three or four chil
dren older but more helpless than f be,
till the mother went Lome to her reward,
and the children had fouud flout Uhing
homes for themselves, with the exception
of the oldest son, who bad followed bis
father's footsteps, literally. Indeed,
when one com templates the specimens of
manhoood she had been mist familiar
with, her aversion to the eex doos not
seem so wonderful. 6lo not
shrewd-eyed, but good and kindly look
ing. No home was brighter than hers ;
no farm better managed.
The night on which commences my
humble history, Miss Iliggins went to
her room in unusually good humor
She had Lad a tea-party. The allies had
all been present, and admitted unani
mously that such fragrant tea, such
snowy biscuits and honey, such gohleu
butter, such cakes and sweel.m4i.its Lad
not beeu partaken of that season. The
scene of her benign victory rose before
her as she took off the little switch of
hair at the backside of her head, and
pensively rolled it np ere she put it in
the t"p bureau drawer.
She raw again the sinking sun shin
ing in through the house plants in the
window, upon the crimson dru.-get of
the dining room ; the snowy tea table
with its silver and pink sprigged china :
the admiring faces of Ler friends as they
partook of Ler delicious food, lint one
memory disquieted Ler : "She almost
mistrusted Ler lemon extract was losing
its strength the frosting on the fruit
cake didn't seem to be flavored quite
Ligh enough " But this haunting mat
ter was softened by the thought that
"she could get a new bottle to-morrow.'
By this time she was arrayed iti Ler
long white night dresa and night cap.
She folded op every article of clothing
and laid it down at right angles ; she
locked up ber breast pin ; and then im
pelled by fate, she calmly advanced to
the side of the bed and raised the snowy
valances gave one shriek and fell back,
ward on the carpet, hitting her head
badly as she did bo on a chair rocker.
There waa her man nnder her bed !
Mite Higgins bad often fancied how
she would awe anch a robber, such a
burglar, with her fearless and search

too hard with her ehe is not the only
one of us who has foutd that it is more
easy to dream of great achievements than
to accomplish them. "She is not the
only one, who, at the first shock, has
shrieked and tumbled down before ad
verse fate. .
But Eunice Iliggins was not one to
wither away before a caLviiity Not long
did she lie there but. as hort a time as
it was, when she lifted ber head her'lnanj
confronted her. He was a very lit'.le
man, iudeed, not more than seven years
old, aud small at that; very good look
ing and well clothed, although exceed
ingly dithevtled and uncomfortable in

This was the first question, but it was
repeated before her . answered with
drooping head and glances :

'"Run away from where 1"
"From our folks' house."
"Who is your folks V
Here the dialogue terminated sudden
ly, Eunice Iliggins becoming suddenly
conscious that a night gown and night-
wpn- not the Dropcr raiment in which
to entertain' fven so email a man.- Out
in the pleae-aut til ting-room, beneath
the warm light of kerosene gleaming
through rose geraniums, and tbo keener
light of Eunice Higgins's eyes, the in
quisition was continued. From which
these facts were gleaned ; that the boy,
Johnny Dale, had been so tired with bis
father, because he wouldn't him go to a
circus, that he had run away.
It was early in the mirning, he said
and he had got a ride with a teamster
and had rode with hi.'n till afternoon, so
he must have come some distance. Af
ter the teamster stoppped he had walked
on, and coming to her door in the twi
light, he thought he would ask for some
supper; but there was no one in ; Miss
Higgins had gone a piece with her vis
ilors." But the tea table stood there,
laden with good things ; he had helped
himself generously, and then, as he
beard h-r step suddenly out side, guilt,
which makes cowards of us all, drove
him into the bed room, and as the step
came nearer and nearer, nnder the bed
His unusual fatigue had. overpowered
him, and he had fallen asleep, and was
awakened only by her scream as she
Miss Iliggins had found the man she
had been looking for for thirty years,
but now the qestiou arose' what was
ehe to do with him ? As he h id no de
signs npon her property or her life, she
could not lecture him therefore. And as
his courage arose, he displayed a pretty
a very pretty face, surmounted by a
mass of bright carls, in which shone
to hen's feathers. Miss Iliggins was
very neat, but whsre is the feather bed
that will not occasionally fhed a few
feathers, dry tears haply falling over
memories of -former flights 1
Miss Higgins good sense, backed by
ber good heart, taught her that what
her man needed now was a good supper
and a bed. But iu the morning the
question vexed her. What was she to
do with her man should she advertise
him. Again she questioned Lim in the
sun-light dining room as he ate his excel-
"Whereabouts do your folks live in
what place ?"
He looked up mildly at her, with a
large piece of peach pie midway be
tween his plate and mouth, and answered
"Old folks' house."
"Who is your folks ?"
The allies were called in ; the stiffly
starched inquest eat on Miss Higgins'
man. The additional result of their
over questioning being that there was
every evidence that the father of Miss
Higgins's man belonged to that corrupt
and shameless sect widowers !
Miss Higgins trembled.
"Had she not better dispose of her
man at oncu ? Was it not in a way en
couraging widowers in their nefarious
doings to barber these sin ill men 1"
She asked these questions with some
relenting of heart, for already had the
childish charms of her man won npou
her, and it was with great relief that she
heard the decision of Aurelia, the most
radical of the allies.
"Na ! keep him here Such a chance
was seldom vouchsafed to the allies to
to teach one of these men widowers a
lesson they would not toon forget. Pun
ish that wretch, that unnatural widow
er, by saying nothing about the child.
Let him think he is lost; let Lim hunt
him np the best way he can "
The youngest Miss Jones she was'
only forty, and naturally timid and ap
prehensivesuggested that 4 it would be
just like one of these men to come right
here to Miss Higgins' after him. There
wasn't anything that they hadn't the
face to do. It would be just like one of
'em to walk into ber ettio'com.,r-
Here Mies Higgins remarkad with
She wonld like to see him walk into

her houee. He wouldn't stir a step be
yond the hall, and as for that stair car
pet she was going to take it up and
cleanse it, anyway."
This remark, which was warmly ap
plauded, terminated the discourse.
Johny did not seem adverse to the
arrangement. lie was at the age when
bodily comfort overshadows the mental,
lie appeared to have a great deal of af
fection for his father, but there was
Bridget, at the very mention whose name
he almost gnashed his teeth. "She was
awful she hid shaken him, pinched
him, pulled his hair."
Eunice Higgins' warm heart almost
molted within ber at the recital of his
A week passed away, and daily Lad
Miss Higgins' man gained upon her
affections. She was the youngest child
of Ler parents, and Lad never known
the delights of childish society. She j
had dwelt so long alone, that to have
that bright manly little face opposite
hers at the breakfast table, l.iokiog out j
of the window, bailing her return from
her short absences, his merry, innocent
prattle and ringing laugh, was all the
more agreeable to her than ehe would be
She grew lenient to the boyish nerve
of her man, for the best of boys have
unregulated moments ; looking benig
nantly upon him as he captured in the
garden paths in startlitig proximity to
her marrowfats and cluster cucumbers
She revelled out a long stocking, and
out of oue of her second best Morocco
shoes made a ball for him ; and tvhen
he lost it iu her hist meadow she herself
boldly breasted the clover waves, side
by side wkh him in pursuit of it.
So that pleasint week passed away,
aud one morning Eunice Iliggins was
called from her suowy dairy room bv a
ring at her front door.
Opening it, she confronted a pleasant
looking man of about her own age. Wo
man's unerring intuition sajd to lier'Uliis
is he." '-Here was the opportunity to
wither him with her glances. But how
could she when he looked so much like
Johnny, just such a pleasant, manly
look to his face. Eunice did not wither
'I have been informed, Madam, that

Instead of the prussic aud vitirgvr that
BoC had designed to have in Ler tone,
the likeness to her nun so softened her
voice that it was only pleasantly acidu
lous like a ripe lemon, as she replied :
"Yes, sir, it is."
Is he here now ?"'
,1'ea, sir, he is."
His anxious eyes so brightened at this,
that sho entirely forgot h?r carpets and
ber enmity, and actually invited him
No sooner was he seated than Johnny
ran in with eager eta.

He (brew his arms around hfs father, s

man of leisure. He thought the air of
the little town exceedingly good. He ob
tained board for the summer, for him
self and son, at the little hotel. But in
Chesterville no air was so pure and saltt
brious, he thought, as the air of miss
Eunice Higgins' -parlor couceqnently
he sought that healthful retreat often.

Day after day did Mr. Dale tread over
the immaculate purity of ber carpets
and they were not taken up and "cleans
ed." Hour after hour did he sit upon
her parlor sofa, aud it was not purified
with soapsuds or benzine.
And at last, one peaceful twilight, it
was on the fourteenth day of September,
at the close of a long conversation both
of the parties being, at the time, of
sound mind Johnny's father kissed
Miss Higgins upon the cheek.
When I say that she did not im
mediately burn out the spot with lunar
caustic, you may be prepared for the re
sult. The next week Eunice Dale, late
Higgins, was ignominiousiy expilled
from the allied forces of Chesterville ;
