that insects communicate their ideas and

his own observation: lie found some ants
feasting on sonic molasses in his closet.—
He shook them out, and suspended the
pot by a string from the ceiling. One ant
remained, and after eating its till, counting
way up the string, on to the ceiling, and
thence along the wall to its nest. In less
than half an hour, a great company of ants
sallied Out of their hole to the ceiling, and
crept down the string into tile pot. This
was done by others, till the molasses was
all consumed; one body passing up the
string from the sweet, tOnle another pass
ed down to it. The Dr. inferred that the
first ant had communicated to its comrades
the new position of their delicacy, and di
rected them to the only accessible road to

vexed at not promptly receiving a debt,

lion when we went, with satchel on our
back, willingly enough, to school. She
was younger by two years than ourselyes
--a little, amid thing, as we remember her.
She had a father at that time, but we could
see that the old gentleman was poor; and
once we were prompted to offer her some
of our victuals which we bore in our hag
(for we dined at school). fearing•that she
lied not enough to eat at home. It was on
ly a boy's thought, and now we are more
happy that we did not commit ourselves by
insult, than we had realized our early
dreams, those bubbles bred in a child's ac
tive brain.
Her father died, end they became poor
er. A rich relation took Lucy away, to
bestow upon her a euperior education. It
was all he could do for her, he said: though
he kept his carriage, and servants, and cast
bread to dogs. She returned to her moth
er after three years, to aid their mutual
support by teaching.
Who knows, besides themselves, the
lives that daily governesses lead? Who
I has tasted, besides themselves, the bitten
ness of the bread they eat? The fine milt
' tress may not frown too severely upon her
cook or footman. They would resent it.
and would seek another place. But the
poor governess! That she will resign her
engagement is not tobe apprehended. And
are there not dozens—scores, who would
be glad to succeed her, if she gave herself
airs? There are tragedies in real life more
sad to witness than any of the histrionic
art, and the life of the daily governess, in
meager circumstances, is one whole trage
I Lucy H i nchli ffelosed the garden gate, and
passed from her mother's sight. It was a
fine morning, and she was early. She
I had, therefore, uo occasion to hurry, as
she was sometimes obliged.,to do. She
felt very glad that the morning was fine,
for to tell a homely truth, her shoes—well
nigh worn out—were far from being Wa
ter-proof. She had sat all day with wet
feet once before from the same cause, and
much need she had to be careful of her
I health for tier mother's sake. She had
! few acquaintances on the road she traversed
—though she was familiar as their own
children's faces to all the small tradesmen
—they saw her pass so regularly morning
and evening. The green-grocer would
frequently tell his wife that it was time to
get breakfast, for the young lady with the
music-paper was abroad. The toll-gate
• keeper was Lucy's only speaking acquaint
' ance of the male sex. Ile had always a
kind word for her. Nur did Lucy fail to
ask him after the child that was scalded—
a frightful accident that—or whether his
eldest girl was at home yet, and other little
queries. "There she goes," the man
would say, when she had turned from him.
"Her's is a hard life, poor thing !"
I "Not hard at all, Mister Marton," re- ,
torted Dame Wringlinen on one occasion.
I "Hard, indeed. I think she's got a very
easy berth o't. Put her over a washing
tub, and give ber three or four counterpanes
for a morning!. work, and see what she'd
make o't." - I
"Ah, you don't know all!" said the toll
keeper, significantly. And he was right.
The lady at whose house Lucy corn
metered the instfintions of the day, was a
very nervous lady indeed; and like your ,
nervous people, she was extremely irasci
ble. Lucy's knock offended bar. She
hated !tingle knocks. Why had they a
bell, if it was not to exempt the house,
from the vulgarity of single knocks 2--
Once in a fit of forgetfulness, the governess
' gave a palpitating double knock, and then
Mrs. Robert Smith was astonished at her
presumption. "Miss—Miss--, I forget
I your name—" Mrs. Robert Smith often
contrived to forget a mime which was the
property of an humble dependent and was
so much better than her own.
"Hinchliff, ma'am," prompted Lucy on
the occasion referred to.
Well; Miss Hinehllff,
if, for the fitters, you would remeniber unit
to give a double knock, you wouliroblige

as I am in my dishabille; it set me all in a

Mrs. Robert Smith dismissed her' cook,

and she felt shat a Llight had indeed , passed
over her young life. When one that we
dearly love is stricken down to die, we
look out upon the world, as if we had no
longer hope, or part, or any lot, therein.
She had to practice the quadrilles that
night, on her hired piano, in fulfillment of
the promise made to Mrs. Robert Smith.
Iler mother had fallen into one of those
dozing restless slumbers, peculiar to a .
state of sickness, and the thought of wa
king the notes of gay quadrille music in
the house on whose threshold, even at that
moment, Death, the destroyer, stood,
shocked Lucy's feelings. No, she could
not do that, let Mrs. Robert Smith say
what she pleased.
