i have one little angel waiting for me
On the beautiful basks of the crystal sea ;
Not impatiently waits my darling 'here,
For smiles light up hia brow so fair ;
An: his little harp rings out so clear.
So soothingly sweet to faith's listening ear;
And he lives in the Rniile of the Savior's love,
Who so early called my darling nbore.
I have one little anpel wait'ng for me
On the beautiful banks of the cryst.il sea ;
Forever free from sorrow and pain.
Spotless and pure from all earthly stain ;
Never in erring paths to rove
Safe iu the bosom of infinite lnvo.
Evermore, evermore walking in light.
That beautiful angel robed in white.
I have one littlo mid waiting for me
On the beautiful banks of the crystal sea ;
When my weary heart is throbbing with pain
And I fain .would clap my darling aain,
I'll look away from this earthly strand
To the beautiful fields of the -'Setter Land,"
I will think of the angel waiting there,
And offer to God a thankful prayer.
I have one little angel to welcome me
When I too aball stand by the crystal sea ;
When the Great Refiner His image may trace
In the heart He has won by His saving grace,
And in robes of Christ's own righteousness
My soul shall seek the home of the blest
On !he beautiful banks of the crystal sea
My darling, still waiting, shall welcome me.

Mapes was a chivalrous by nature;
he believed in "seeking the bubble repu
tation, even in the cauuon's mouth " His
enthusiasm was aroused by the recital of
stories of deeds of desperate daring ;
while he had nothing but contempt for
even success won by crooked and indi
rect means. Tirams, on the contrary,
believed that there was policy in war,
and that the 4-nd justified the means,
particularly if the end was attained.
Companions from infancy, thnir lives
had been spent iu competition for scho

between them had gone on. hach one
had called into play all his personal an 1
social resources ; tor the local society
bad tiken sucu au interest that it was
divided iuto two factious, known as the
Mapti-ites and the Timmsitvs. And yet
Mies Eliza could not be brought to ex
press a preference. If she rode with one
to day, she was careful to walk abroad
with the rival to morrow.
Coquetry is delicious to a woman ; and
Eliza would not have been feminine bad
the been in haste to Lave m ide an elec
tion Nevertheless, she did not intend
to miss her opportunity. She knew well
the war could not always last, and fear
ed that when one of the aspirants for
ber favor withdrew from the contest, the
love of the other, wantin g the stimulus
of competition, would grow cold'; hence,
she bad made up her mind, that, upon
the first favorable opportunity, she would
signify to Mapes that his suit' so often
pressed, was at last accepted. Tbe op
portunity, it seemed, was cot to be long
wanting ; for invitations were given out
for an apple bee in the neighborhood,
and Eliza found means to convey an ta
rnation to Mapes that she expected to
meet him there, and connted on his es
cort home at the conclusion of the frolic.
The appointed evening looked for
with sach nervons anticipation by Mapes
came at last. He felt that it was the
most important of his life, and arrayed
himself as only a rustic dandy can. His
way lay across a meadow, through which
ran or rather loitered a deep, but nar
row stream, epanned by a single log. It
was so darkswhen he reached the primi
tive bridge that he was compelled to feel
Lis way slowly across. As he progress
ed it commenced to swing lightly
something very unusual until he reach
ed the centre, when, to his utter confu
sion, it gave way, and Le was launched
into the water, He scrambled out, then
suddenly tbe night became lumiuous
with that lurid light to which people
refer when they say, in speaking of somo
profane wretch, "lie swore until all was
blue." Whatever illuminating qualities
this lurid light possessed, it had no dry
ing ones, and Mapes was forced to bid
adieu for the night to all hopes of plight
ing bis troth to the loved Eliza.
In the rural districts Down East, in
early times, the good people had such
habits of .industry and rigid economy
that tbey seldom gave, or attended par
ties, trnless such as were cloaked tinder
the names of raisings, qniltiugs, husk
ings, or apple-bees ; thns. the apple-bee,
fraught with momentous consequences to
Mapes and Timms. was bat a social par'
ty hi diFgnise a few apples being par
ed, quartered, cored and strung , in the
early evening for appearanee lake.

As usual, Eliza Seed was the belle of
the occasion. Gooi looks entire self
possession, aud a keen, satirical wit al
ways assured her :iat .position ; and
this night she shone with unusual brill
iancy, uutP, as the hours wote away,
aud Stapes came not, she begun to lose
herself in pondering-wby, and at length
she asked Timing :
"Is yoar friend Mapes ailing t"
''I gnees not," replied Titnnis ; saw
him to day. Lie wasn't complaining.'
"lie deuies himself much pleasure,"
said Eliza, "in not coming here to-night.
for this is the place where we always
have a good time. Aunt Judy knows
how to give an apple-bee."
"You let Mapes alone," answered
Timms ; -he knows what he's about."
"What do yau mean ? asked Eliza.
"Oh, 1 mean," replied Tin.ms, "that

"I don't know for sure," answered
Timms. "lie told me to drty there were
special reasons for his coming here, but
that 1 e Lad an iuvitatioa to the rich
and aristocratic Squire Hnntoon's, who
is celebrating bis daughter's birthday,
and that he didn't know which way he
would go ;" and Timms turned away to
talk to the next prettiest girl in the
Petted young women are seldom lg

home, and before they arrived there, she
had consented to become, with the least
possiblo delay, Mrs. Timms The next
morning the engagement was announced,
and preparations for the wedding com
menced. Timms was exultant happy

For a few days Timms was not much
seen iu public perhaps for want of
courage to wear his blushing honors
openly ; perhaps want of com age to meet
other contingencies who knows ? Bat

Lis own wedding from a fixed stmdpni:,t,

"You'il kuock tne down again," said
"Yes," returned Mapes, "I will."
"Then I won'i get up," said Timms.
"You're au infernal scoundrel,'' said
"I can't help yoursayiug so," answer
ed Timms.
"You sawed the log," said Mapes.
'MYbatlog?" asked Timms. ,
You-sawed the log,'' repeated Mapes,
advancing a step.
"Yes stop," said Timms ; "I sawed
tbe log."
"Well, you needn't tLitik," said Mapes
"that after your marriage you're going
to tell that story, and make me a laugh
ingstock." "I'll never speak of it'"' wbined Timms
"Perhaps you won't," said Mapes t
"but I'm going to swear you before I
get through. There's another thing;
you won the woman by your trickery,
and I know it is in you to abuse her ;
so I'm going to swear you to treat her
"I'll swear," said Timms.
"Hold up your hand," said Mapes.
Timms held np his baud.
s"Now, repeat after me : 'I, Silas
Timms, solemnly swear that I will never
bring to the knowledge of any human
being that I sawed the log whereby
Daniel Mapes f. 11 into tbtfereek and lost
a wife ; and, further, that I will, she con
senting, marry Eliza Eeed, and always
treat ber kindly ; so help me God."
Timms repeated the oath, terlalim.
"Now, get np and go home," said
Mapes. "I don't thiuk you'll be married
till yonr eyes get out of mourning, and
by that time 1 11 be far ennngh away.
But don't think IJ1I lose sight of you ;
and if you don't keep your oath, you'll
see me."
Timms arose from the gronnd. shook
off the dust, and walked away ; hat
when he had secured a safe distance, be
shouted buck exultingly :
"Mapes, she's an ans;el."
In twenty years Daniel Mapes Lad
learned many things, and among them
this : Life ia very much as we make it.
In other words, the world is like a mir
ror, and looks at us with the face we
present. It returns scowl for scowl, and
smile for smile. It echoes our sobs and
and our laughter To the cold, it is as

it is as balmy ar the isles of the tropics

Iff son was to make it appear that the
lines, to Lim, had faUeo in pleasant pla

fair woman named Lim husband, and
children culled Lim father A beautiful
hume in the ShiiU Clara Valley was
theirs ; besides which, Mapes had many
broad acres of Itud, as well as many
head of stock running nearly wild in the
counties of Monterey and Sua Luis
Once in each year the cattle that
graze on California's thousand Lills are
gathered in bands at convenient places,
to be claimed an I branded by their own
ers such assemblages being called
ndcos Mapes had been down across
the Lalinas I l.iius, in attendance upon
a redeo ; aud, being on Lis return, jog
giug along on Lis mustang, Le saw, far
iu the distance, but Hearing him, an
equally lone traveler. Slowly the dis
tance bttweeu them decreased; and as
they approached, M.ipes with Califor
nia prudence slipped his revolver upon
the belt which sustained it, from his
back, rouud to Lis left side, bringing the
hilt under the shadow of Lis bridle arm,
and within easy reach of bis right band.
A near look assured Mapes that he had
no occasion for weapons; the coming
man was of middle-age, but his look was
worn, weary, dejected, and hopeless in
local phrase, his Manner was that of a
person who Las "lost his grip ;" and
those who have met that terrible misfor
tuue arc never highway-robbers, "grip"
being the very quality wanted in that
haztrdous pursuit.
The travelers met, .with a long, in
quiiitig gaze, when from their lips simul
taneously burst the words, 'Mapes'"
"Tiaims.'' After a moment of mute
surprise, Mapes, spurring his mustang,
drew nearer Timms.
"So we meet, at last I Lave been
wautiug to see you, this many a year.''
The movement seemed omiuous to
Timms, and he. ciicd out : "Don't, don't
phoot ! 1 have no wenp'ins ! I'esidcB. 1
have kept my oath at least, as well as
I could. I never tnl-.l the reason why
you uiiiu't attend the apple-bee, nor ever
breathed a syllable about the sawed h'g
npou my snlemu oath 1"
"I wasn't thinking of the ducking,'
said Mapes.
"Dou't come any nearer," returned
Timms. "I have nhvtys tried to nse

"It is n n?e to go ot-er the grounds

'Tu:,'' repl'id TiiutiH, 'you Lave no
idea what that woman is; you wouldn't
blame me if you only knew. Slit's
browbeat m; tili I ain't half a m.iu.''
"So I see," said Mapes.
"No, you dou't see," replied Timms.
"You dou't see half. Look at this scar"
taking off his bat, and showing a
long sea-Ji on Lis sca!p ; "that was done
with the skillei."
"You Lave sufTered," said Mapes
"Suffered !" relumed Timms. ,'You
ought to Lave sworn her, too. If you
only knew how I have thought of you,
aud my oath to you ; and Low I Lave
borne blows, aud been quiet how I
have been called a brnte and a fool, and
kept silent how I have endured taunts
and sneers, hunger and discomfort, with
out a word of reproach you would for
give me ; you wouldn't harbor thoughts
of revenge."
"TBonghts of revenge !" answered
Mapes. "Let us dismount, aud have a
settlement ; for I see my chance has
come at last."
"Mapes, wonld you take the life of an
unarmed man 1"
"ritntus. you're crazy ! Let me ex
plain. I have no wrongs to avenge. It
isn't for vengance that I have wanted
to see you. I have beard about you of
ten know all your life and experiences ;
and I have only wanted t meet you, to
offer you a home and friendship employ
ment and opportunities for prosperity,
Lere in California. I owe you no debt
but one of gratitude, for the inestimable
service you did me by that little job of
carpet, te work ; and that I mean to pay.
Come with me " He took Timms' horse
by tbe bridle, turned him about wi:h re
monstrance, and they traveled on in si
lence. After awhile, Timms raised his eyes
Timidly from tbe grouud, aud said :

A vou.no couple were sitting together
in a romantic spot with birds and flow
ers about them, when the following dia

would please ihee. most gladly would I
lay it at thy feet."
""Oh sir. yon are to kind ! But it just
reminds me that I wish you'd stop using

"Yon're a pretty girl to be married !''
said an aged aunt to her niece. "Wby,

just from a boarding fchoo? I am sure
your husband has need of a miut of mon
La ! aunt, expect to board ; yon need

now that gets manied generally tLe first

ten dollars; two rooms beautifully sit

enough. What is Hyde's salary T Why
six hundred dollars now, and the prom

before the next year is out."

Sense to go beyond your means
"Why, aunt! nobody would respect
us if we did not live as stylish as other
people; there is a great dtal in begiu
ning." "True, child, that is what I am trying j
to impress upon yon."
The year passed away. Susie lived io
style, paid fifteen dollars fur board, re,
ceived ber genteel acquaintances, worked
some fancy netting drew a few sketch
ings from oil paintings, grew tired of
boarding, and was just entering upon
fashionable housekeeping, when, Io I a
defalcation came out. Hyde bad taken
money unlawfully, was arrested held to
bail, and a ptisou stared bim iu the
Susie did not bel ieve him guilty ;
they had al ways lived so economically,
and it could not be.
But the trial proved otherwise, and Le
was convicted and sentenced to impris
onment for years.
"How did you come to do so, IlydeT"
a-ked the good old annt.
"To please my wife's fancy,'' was the
reply. ,-?he wanted to live like olhtr
people, and I wished to gratify Lor, and
in this way I committed my first breach
of trust.
The broken hearted w ife lamented the
beginninj which she had made, hen
ulas I it was to late to rectify it. She
found respectability preferable to gentili
ty. She now lives at her father's with
a worse than widow's sorrow to harrow
her feelings, and takes in sowing for
a livelihood.
The plain road to ruin is here plainly
marked out. We see what nm-t be the
reKuIt of such a course. liut are nut
thousands of others sacrificing' their hus
band's reputation by lees obvious bnt
ftiil a certain course of extravagance ?
Off w ith the nonsensical thought that gen

Captain "W. II. Tierce, one of the sur
vivors of the explosion of the UI -fated
McDonald, near McGregor, Iowa, gives
the followning account of his serial trip :
"I was awakened by a Lci7y concussion,
followed immediately afterward by a sec
ond and heavier one. Everything seemed
: to give way. There was a rash of bet
air, and I found . rayself ciug through
the air. Something struck me in tha
side and broke my ribs. I knew in a
moment what was the matter, and I had
all my senses about ac. It seems to m-j
that I went up a frightful distance. How
far, of course, I cannot tell. I left th
hot air that started with me, aud struck
a cooler current. I went np head first,
and as I stopped, I turned over and came
down head first The thought passed
through my miud that this was unfortu
nate ; for I might strike a piece of the
wreck and injure rsyself. Just then a
stick struck me aud whirled ma over so
that I struck tha water feet first. The
blow left a mack on my right leg about
eight inches long, and crippled it 89 that
I could uot nse it. I took a full breath
of air as I toncbed the water and soon
began to rise. The thought strcck me,
what if I come np just in time to b
hit by a filling tiiuWt I As I came op
I thrust np my baud over 3y head to
protect it, and caught it on a piece of tho
roof, cutting it somewhat. My theory is
that it was a part of the roof over me, I
had followed it np and beat it coming
down I looked around aud saw tba
wreck had already sunk '1 Le deck
seemed to be attached in some way to tho
wreck, for I floated away from it, and
began to look around for something to
cling to. 1 found a mass of timber, and
I was trying to get together enough to
support my weight, when Vol Bigelow
cried out : 'Come here, Cap , I've got e
raft ;' so I left my pile aud swam over
to bim. The c xt person I saw was Bob
Solomon. He was close to the stern
bulkhead, and was climbing on it. I
a."ked him and Bigelow if they were hurt.
Both said uot much, and we drifted
away from Solomon, aud I stw no morn
of him.
The appearance of the river was
. frightful, I saw five or six men come np
to the surface with blood streaming from
their wounds. Some oi them would
struggle for a few moments, shriek out,
and then go donSl. Others would givo
a groan and drop back. One mm, Tr!ib
a terrible cut, cried out : "Oh, my God !''
and sank. Others cried, "I am killed."
