t&&- Jrh Work of alikind done at this
Tlie Rlrtl In tbe Linden.
A little bird sang on a linden-treo,
. In the balmy days of spring ;
When his lay of love woke & Toice la me,
And t essayed to sing.
The song of the bird was merry and glad,
As song of a bird might be ;
Mr answering strain was mournful and sad,
As I sat 'neath that linden-tree.
For close by tbe bird on the lindf n-tree
Perched a mate with folded wing ;
But never a mate was there for me,
To lis:cn while I might sing.
My ppring was past, and my life was lone,
Love never had beamed on m ; .
I could not echo the joyous tons
Of that bird on the linden-trei.
The little bird fang on the linden-tree
When summer was warm and bright,
And, oh ! I could answer his minstrelsy
With a song of deep delight.
For the heart I had long despaired to gain
Had blossomed with love for me ;
Oh, joy ! we were one who had once been
And we sat 'neath that liaden-tree.
I peeped in timidly, but to my great de
litrht he was alone.
"My dear Miss Bernice," he exclaimed,
warmly taking me by both hands, ''this is
indeed a pleasure ! Sit right down here,
and tell me what is the matter, for I know
you would never have bearded the old fel
low in his den for nothing.
"There is a great deal the matter," said
I, desperately, as I began to feel my nicely
prepared speech slipping entirely away
from me.
'I am sorry to hear it," he replied,
looking grave immediately, and evidently
expecting some overwhelming communi
cation. I tried to begin as I had intended, but
it would not come, and exhausted with
nervous excitement, I burst into tears.
Then, everything came out in a perfect
stream, without being "sorted" at all ; and
there was the strangest mixture of all my
hopes and fears, and projects, and my in
tention of buying a house in the same
breath that I acknowledged myself unable
to pay for one room, until my hearer look
ed quite stunned, and evidently began to
wonJ if I VaJ Lvt nursenies.
Then he looked amused, and presently
he snid :
"My dear girl, there is no need of cry
ing; let us exaniino this matter rationally.
You wish, you say, to buy a small house,
that you may have a more desirable room
for 3'our school, and lessen the expense of
. : v . i
rent. otriKcs mo as a puriiuuiaujr sensi
ble idea. As to the money part, you will
not be obliged to pay the whole sum down.
How much have you at your command ?"
"I have just one thousand dollars in the
world," I replied, shortly.
" One thousand dollars !" repeated Mr.
Portman, in amazement. "You cannot
really mean it ! The daughter of my old
friend Edward Mapleton reduced to this!
Whv did vou not let me know this be
fore ?"
"I would not have told you now," said
1, proudly, "had you not asked me.
The old gentleman walked about the of
fice, shaking his head in a very disappro
ving way. "Poor child I said he, "poor
child !"
"I am not so very much to be pitied,"
said I, determined to assert myself to the
last ; "I have youth and health, and al
though I do labor under the disadvantage
of being a woman, I intend to accomplieh
something yet. I will never be depen
dent on any one, except for kindness; but
if you are willing, Mr. Portman, to lend
me whatever is required ajbove my thous
and" "Willing !" he exclaimed, warmly ; "I
would be willing, Bernice, to do far more,
but if this is the only assistance you will
accept, let us go at once and look at the
My heart was considerably lightened as
we set forth, and directed our steps to No.
40 Plum street. We found Messrs. Broad
and Long in the shape of one hard-looking
gentleman, who was neither broad nor
long, excepting by name.
He eyed us critically, and then said, in
an indifferent way, "Yes neat litti house
owner going West No 99 Lumbago
Mr. Tortman eyed every part of the
house very critically, and when the agent
left us for a moment, he told me that it
was very well built, aud that the price,
$1,000, was exceedingly moderate.
'You could probably get 85,000 for it,
after a little time, if you wished to sell,"
said he.
This was a new view of the case", and it
set me thinking more desperately -than
ever. ." Make a clear $1,000 after paying
Mr. Portman what I owed him, and thus
double my money! It was quite exci
ting, and I felt disposed to go at once into
the real estate business.
The end of all was that the house be
came mine, at least nominally, for I always
felt that it really belonged to Mr. Port
man ; and wheu the deed was executed
and placed in my hands, I almost doubted
my own identity. My lesthetic soul, uow
crer, received a severe shock in the .word
ing of the document, wherein 'I wjw
stigmatized as "Bernice 3Iapleton, spire-
ster.'. How much more agreeable to my
feelings the term "damsel" or; "maiden"
would have been I ,1 tried to . remember
that I was only twenty-four, but; "spin
ster" sounded like forty, at Jeasu A
spinster or not, though, the houso was
mine ; and I, almost a pauper, was actu
ally a propertj'-holder.
"Now," said Mr. 1'ortman, ctieeriuuy,
when tho matter was all arranged, "I re
ally think, Miss Bernice, that this Js the
brightest thing you have done for many a
day." ; "r ; i : -f
'-That you have done, .'you mean," , I
murmured. . ... , ; . v -

credit of it belongs to you. " And unless I

from this very day. ; -
Mr. Portman knew of a young married
couple, just from Maine, who would be
glad to occupy the remainder of my
house ; and before long they were installed
there, at a rent that covered all expense,
and left my schcol-rooru rent free I

would bring her sewing into the school
room, and listen to my style of teaching,
and declare that she ought to be regularly
entered as a pupil, and pay her tuition fee
like the others.
I took great pride in my new school
room, and two new scholars from the
neighborhood came to supply the place of

those I had lost. Every one prophesied
brilliant success for me in the spring aud
I looked forward hopefully.
I had not been long iu possession of my
house when I was informed, one evening,
that a gentleman wished to see me in the
parlor. Now, my room iooked particularly
cozy and pleasant, and I was, moreover,
writing deep in a story that promised to
be a great success. My hair was some
what tumbled about, but rather pictu
resquely, and quite forgetful of my little
apron, I concluded to go- down just as I
va. Probably some pompous-looking
father of a family awaited me, with a
string of questions about my school ; and
trying to assume a proper expression of
dignity, I walked into the room.
Rather a tall gentleman was bending
over Miss Plidget's photograph album
the grand ornament of the center table,
and although the gas was miserably low. I
on1J Rfiff that fit insf tir.-

get herself who was just opposite to it.
He seemed quite absorbed, and did not
hear me when I came in.
The visitor was young and fine looking,
with a frank, determined face, that wculd
win its way anywhere. On the card that
I received was written "Geo. Helmwood."
Surely he could not have any children to
place at school ? What could he possibly
want with me ?
lie looked around surprised when I
turned up the gas, and glanced hastily
from nic to the album again. He bowed
to me politely as he said, "I called to see
Miss Mapleton I was told, that she lives
"I am Miss Mapleton," I replied rather
"A lady who has a school on Lumbago
street," he contined, hesitatingly, ; "who
owns a house there."
I pleaded guilty to both thee charges,
and the gentleman looked bothamused and
"Pardon me," he said, presently, with a
smile, "I I expected to see an older lady.
I scarcely know how to begin."
''Is it anything about the school?" I
asked, by way of helping him.
"No," was the reply ; "it is about the
house. The truth is, Miss Mapleton,. I
want to buy the house or rather my
father does and ho has authorized mo to
negotiate for it. Have you any desire to
sell it?"
"I have only iust bought it," said I scarce
ly knowing what else to say; ','and my
school is there. Besides, it is rented for
a year."
"Will you let my father callandsee you
about it?" asked my visitor, after a pause.
"The truth is, I I do not understand
such business very well. My father is
willing to give $10,000 for the property
he must have it, if possible."
Was I really in my sober senses? Ten
thousand dollars ! I must have looked and
acted in an expressibly silly manner, for
Mr. Helmwood soon took his leave with
out arriving at any understanding what
ever, except that I was to receive a visit
from his father.
i The next day I rushed down to Mr.
Portman for instructions.
"Bravo ! Miss Bernice," said he,
laughing, when he had heard my story,
"you will turn out a woman" of fortune
yet. I know the Helmwood3 well very
nice people indeed and the son, let me
tell you, is particularly nice. Father and
son are in business together, and their
lar"-e importing warehouse is on the street
back of your, premises. By extending
their place they will probably realize a few
hundred thousand from increased business,
and they can therefore well afford to pay
you $10,000 to get you out of the way.
Let them do it, by all means." .
Thus fortified I was quite ready for Mr.
Helmwood, senior, who was a remarkably
finc-lookinz old gentleman, not unlike his
son, and who stared at me during the in
terview as though he had a dim recollec
tion of having seen me before. He was
quite at his ease, and I felt much less, em
barrassed in " discussing business matters
with him than with his son ; there" was,
moreover, a warmth and urbanity. In his
inanner that quite charmed me.
"Now, my dear young lady !" said he,
in a quick earnest way, "the facts of the
case are just these : I do not wish to be
regarded by you in the light of a filibuster,
nor. as coveting what is legally and prop
erly yours ; but I have had my eye on that
property for ome time past; and. it - was
only lately, while in a neighboring city on
a matter of business, that twas informed
that it was for sale. I immediately wrote
to 'George to secure it at - once : but he
wroto-back that it." had been bought byj a
single lady tor a school. (And here 1 may
as well say in parenthesis that you do not
at all answer the idea we had formed of
the single lady in question, and I cannot
help looking on you in some sort as an im
poster.) I then marched George immedi
ately on to this elderly maiden oi our lm-
aginations to see i

man, however, returned in an unsettled
state of mind, having evidently failed to
briug you to term;i, and coolly requested
me to finish the business myselt, 1- be
lieve Miss Mapleton that you paid $4,000
for the house. I will double that amount
I bit my hp to keep from smiling.
Truly the son teas unbusiness-like. "I
did not buy the house to sell again, 1 re
plied, very quietly.
"I know it. You bought it, of course,
for your school, and I suppose it just suits
you: but, unfortunately, it just suits me
too. Would $9,000 tempt you 7".
I remained silent, fearful that if I spoke,
I should laugh. .
"Now," said Mr? Helmwood, rising in
his earnestness, "I must have tho place !
and, rather than lose it, I will give you
$10,000 for it." '
"That is just what your son offered me
at first," I replied, withoutraising my
"The young idiot I" exclaimed his father
laughing. "Pray, how did he wordhis
offer, if you can recall it ?
"To the best of my recollection he

sible.' "
-..iiAj , u 5-v"".!" Iap"hiijo at
me in your sleeve all this time . said my
visitor. "I am willing to give 810,000 for
the property, but I preferred it for $8,
000, which is considerably above its value
to any ouc but myself. Is it a bargain,
then, at 810,000 ?'"
"Mr. Helmwood," said I, as I felt the
color rising in my face, "one thing you
will please remember in this matter I
did not offer my property for sale, nor had
I any idea of disposing of it ; but much to
my surprise, I was solicited by you to part
with it. I am not a 'sharp woman' a
character that I particularly detest as I
have lost nearly all the little I possessed in
foolish ventures ; and after your son's visit
to me I went, much perplexed, to consult
my Iricnd, Mr. Portman, through whose
asst. tance I was enabled to buy the house.
He advised me to accept Mr. George
Hclmwood's offer, and explained to me
th:it you would be an immense gainer by
purchasing my little property, even at this
extravagant price. ' I have a great horror
of taking advantage of any one, and I was
afraid that it might not be quite right to
receive so much more for a thing that I
had given so little for."
"My dear Miss Mapleton," replied Mr.
Helmwood, with a manner of great -re
"I should never think of fastening
upon you the term of a 'sharp woman ;'
but you will not object, I hope, to my re
garding you as a remarkably clever young
lady. You are quite right in saying that
the property is worth more than $10,000
to me ; and I give it the more cheerfully
since I lmve seen the owner. But I shall
certainly have a good laugh at George for
his style of doing business. Perhaps, how
ever, had 1 been his age instead of mine,
I should not have acquitted myself any
This was rather embarrassing, and I
hastened to say : "Mr. George Helmwood
could not have mentioned to you that I
have rented the premises."
"Qh,.ves ; he did say something of the
kind. But I will undertake to reconcile
the inmates to a change of residence, pro
vided I have your consent to proceed in
the matter."
Fiaallv I gave it; it seemed to be the
best thing I coulu do j and just as be was
leaving, "Mr. Helmwood scrutinized mo
closely, as he asked :
'Will you allow me to inquire. Miss
Mapleton, if Mr. Sylvester Wiliingflect is
a relative of youra ?"
- "He was my grandfather," I replied.
"I am very glad to hear it !" he ex
claimed, seizing my hand warmly. "He
was one of the old merchants of this city,
and a valued friend of mine. Many a;

I knew my head went up an 'inch or
two, and that my eyes flashed, for he said,

you resembled so strongly. And now. my I

will call at once, and I hope very soon to
welcome you at our house,' as I have been
so often welcomed at your grandfather's."
'"Well, Bernice Mapleton," said I, when
I found myself alone with that individual,
"what do you think of yourselt now?
Are you really yourself, or somebody else?
Or have you been dreaming these bewil
dering things ?"
Mr. Portman congratulated me"bn my
good fortune, laughing heartily at my ac
count of the interview with Mr. Helm
wood ; and by the next morning, I was so
fully persuaded that things were what they
seemed that I bought a pound of French
candy to celebrate the event, and tried to
inveigle Miss Plidget into sharing the
feast with me. But that wary female,
who was given to dyspepsia and other ab
surdities, solemnly worked her way thro
one sugar plum, analyzing it all the while
as though it had been a piece of quartz,
or something else equally indigestible, and
then absolutely refused to touch any more.
I w,as engaged in exploring the recesses
of the neat little bonbon bag, when Mrs.
Helmwood was announced ; and I went to
receive a warm embrace from the most el
egant looking not old, but middle aged;
lady I had ever seen. Her features were
regular and beautiful, she was perfectly
dresed, and had the air of a dowager
duchess. She insisted on my going home
with her at once on a visit, declared, in
answer to my objections, that I was not a
stranger, as she bad known my grandfath
er well, and finally, I was deposited in a
lovely square room, surrounded by every
luxury, and expected to remain for an in
degnite period.
There were no daughters, and only that
one son; so Mrs. Helmwood declared that
it was a real charity for a young lady to
enliven their dullness. It was certainly a
very pleasant task, as I enlivened my own
at the same time; and I felt very thank
ful fur the advantage of havinghada grand-
Master George and I were rather shy of
each other at. first : but this gradually
wore Mind wme or 0UlcrQ founa
ourselves alone together vei i.v.,
I tried to avoid this, for I had no desire
to repay these people's kindness to me by
taking their son from them, for whom,
they probably had seme grander match in
store. But one day the young gentleman
made some exceedingly incoherent remarks
to me, and drew a highly-colored picture
of our first meeting in which "my care
less hair" and "coquettish little apron"
(ic had a great blot of ink in one corner,
but fortunately he did not see that) figured
largely, and the "exquisite picture" in
Miss Plidget's album came in for a share
of the general enthusiasm, and I conduct
ed inyself in consequence very much like
an idiot, and came very near forgetting
everything, until I suddenly remembered to
assure him that his father and mother
would probably be anything but pleased at
such arrangement, and that I could never
consent to enter a family that was not de
oirous of receiving me.
My lover suddenly disappeared, and re
turned with his father. ,
"It seems to me. young lady," said tho
older gentlemen with a very quizzical look,
"that in all George's transactions with you
I am brought in to finish the business.
I would have nothing to do with such a
stupid fellow. Your very honorable con
duct, my dear little girl, only makes me
more anxious than ever to welcome you as
a daughter; and if I had entertained any
objections to such a finale, do you think I
would have been weak enough to expose
my son to the peril of daily contact with
a girl like you?"
I had nothing to say to this; and Mr.
Helmwood toot me in his arms and kissed
me, and then led me to his wife, from
whom I received an equally warm wel
come. It is needless to say that thjse five in
fants on whom I had expended so much
surplus energy were turned out to pasture
without any compunctions of conscience ;
and the young couple from Maine were
provided with a larger domicile, and some
very nice furniture to put in it.
Mr. Portman would not allow me to
pay my debt to him, but insisted up in its
being appropriated to my trousseau; and
ray identical g:ld bouh were returned t j
me iust as I had given them to him. He
had the nleasure of rivinir me awav: but

Moving Into Xeiv Houses.
That death frequently eimu'lj -after mov
ing into a new houso is unquestionably
true, but examination will prove that it s
due to the imprudence of the occupant in
manv cases. The most frequent cause of
I such an event is the state , of the vndried
plastering. It is, however, sometimes oc-
casiwca ov the entiro chanire of habits.
which' lollows what is lrequently a decisive
step upward in the career of the owner.
Sand is used in constructing plaster for
the simple reason that when the lime itself
hirdens there shall be a material dispers
ed through it as hard as itself. .Water i
the agent which produces . this effect.
When that is. suddenly . absorbed, from
contact with porous bricks, or from expo
sure to powcrlul heats, or drying winds,
rtherrecssaTy nnion is notlbxiaed, aud tho
material, instead oi being mortar, consists
of slacked lime and dry sand. When tho
water is allowed to remain in the mixture
the hardening process goes on, but pro
ceeds slowly. A mason, examined as a
witness in this city some years ago, testi
fied that mortar in a thick wall was twen
ty or thirty years in acquiring, its full sol
idity. The process is somewhat like that
by which nature converts certain minerals
in the earth into stone. "
When plaster is applied to laths it dries
rapidly and thoroughly, but yet it is whol
ly unsafe to inhabit a dwelling only re
cently plastered. . When a house is occu
pied too soon it is as if the walls consisted
of water and tho dampness were inhaled
at every breath. Very obstinate cases o
sickness proceed from this causs.
When sleep is affected by damp walls
sore throat or a cold follows in eight or
ten days, attended with an extraordinary
difficulty of recovery. The main cause,
the dampness of the house, is a continuing
cause of disease.
Many houses are now being constructed
for occupancy this spring. The assertion
that they are thoroughly dried will un
questionably be made by persons having
them for sale or to let ; and although many
ol them will be stimulated by ambitious
wives and husbands to move into them for
the sake of losing no time in making ap
propriate display, it will be far wiser to
wait for a whole year after a house is fin
ished, and use in the winter furnaces, and
in summer drying winds, to render it safe
ly habitable.
Although moving from a clry to a damp
houso ought to be regarded as a sUmcient
cause for serious ill-health, there are but

new houses may not remain on their hand."

may be patients needing to be cured. The
condition in this respect of the house inti
