with edibles.
"Nothing mother, only a letter from
William." The flush that bathed her face
and [weans with crimson belied her quiet
seply. But Mrs. Warren Was too busy to
notice t hat and Ann too much alpustomecl
to coneeal embtions to continue her efforts
at emulating the roees.

her whole fare aglow with hope, love and

through his own unaided efforts, ambitious
plans, inklings of what he could do for her

itself bespoke a manly strength and

saw it all there, and it made her en happy

her love thus , a kaki of saintly grace en

"Ann! Ann Warren, why ditrnt you

"I'm coming in a moment, mother,"
answered Ann tel herday-dreams, minding

a slight addition to her toilet lip smooth

While she is absent let us employ our
in turning over a leaf or two in her

rooky soil, for by no poetical license can

his dollar hardly, he knew bow to keep
them. Itpantiot therefore be su pposed,
that either he or his ' thrifty spouse would
prepose a love match for the ir only daugh
ter with William Bradley, Who had neith
er money nor expectations, while Dr.
(it-veiniest - 8 only son had professed an en
tire willingness to marry her at once, if he
could but obtain her consent. There were
pret'lty girls in the village, who wondered
at Ann Warren's taste. The dashing, rat
tle-breined, black eyed Greenleatehanneill
those who could see nothing remarkable
in the modest dignity of William Bradley's
derbeanor. After the usual method had
beep pursued by William's falling so me
eipeetedly and desperately in love with
Ann, that he must needs consult her upon
the subject, they bethought themselves of
acquainting her father and mother of the

manhood. Evidently William was too
proud to open any door of communication,
yet he could not go back leaving his er
rand undone. He resorted again to the
convenient common-places of conversation,
a little nearer the mark this time.
"They say your'e doing well down there."
William briefly stated the wages he al
ready received, with the promised increase
if he remained another year.
"Batter than fanning, a good deal," re
rillettl'hontas. "Well, I'm sure I'm glad
of it. I always wished you good luck,
though you may have thought different."
"I never blamed you," answered Wil
liam, coldly, relapsing into silence, as he
felt the force of this indirect allusion,
Nothing but a dogged determination to
accomplish his object could have brought
'Thomas Watren out. lie had been can
dowdy trying his ground until he saw that
.William was unapproachable. If hewould
understand his feelings, he must betray
his own, and he came up to the work like
a hero.
"If you go back without seeing our Ann,
she won't live a year longer. Her heart's
bound up in you. I might as well own it
as look on and see her,—" but. a great
sob, which would not be choked down.
-And you blame me t" William began,
but the bitter emphasis changed to a tone
tremulous with feeling as he grasped his
friend's hand to ask, "Will Ann see me ?
Will your father ?"
"Father," interrupted Thomas vehe
mently, "he just begins to see what he
has done. He wouldn't have you go back
to Lowell for any money, if he want afraid
to say so. You call round to-night and
talk with him, won't ye!
And Thomas hurried away in earnest
this time. It was well for both that they
were alone with their emotions, *
What we all know of Ann's history will
account for her recovery, and explain. as
far as words may, her happiness, as letters,
neither few nor brief, kept her faithfully
informed of other matters, more interest

bad never ch-esuneditrf possessing had been
developed while employed about the ma

he bad spoken of a successful invention,
which promised to make his fortune.
' Ann's heart overflowed with joy. Al
though tfittrhad always undetstooti William
better than anybody else could. it was
pleasant to see him thus winning his de
serts. If her father's hearty appreciation
of his worth, equaled their entire forget

her early trial, rose up from the, terrible
affikstion of a woman, strong in purpose, and
Heaven-supported for the work she had
to do.
One bright morning in spring, Ann Wish.

room, adjusting her simple toilet. The old
apple tree crowded a spray of fragrant blos
soms in at the open window. Antvgather
'ed one to fasten in the braids of her hair
and then bowed her head to weep over the
memories, it had awakened. Only a year
ago, and how quickly William noticed them
and stopped to admire their color and fra
grance.- It might hare been the soft cheek,
tinted with a •hue lovelier than the buds,
he thought of most, but he would never
see that, nor spring-time nor happiness
again. What were the apple blossoms to
Ann now ; she drew them out and drop
ped them there to wither.
Her eyes were red with weeping when
her mother entered. Mrs. Warren seemed '=
annoyed as she noticed them. "I believe
that child mains to kill herself. She cries
half the titne‘" said she, in thought. Ann
had 'tumid sway, and seemed very busy
with her itimel •and bonnet. _
" Yon going otek P" queried her mother,
"Your eyes are as as ferrets." She re

question. " - I've got the housework all done

finish fitting that voile° of mine. I hain't

" Will not some other time do just as
well, mother?" she asked quietly, and then
confronting het, she added : "Mother, I
am going up * Mr. Bradley's." She seem
ed to undenstatul'perfectly, just how many
words were needed to raise the storm of
indignation, which she was prepared to
meet, for sha-had nothing tnork
" Ann Warren f" screamed Wet mother,
"why you're beside yourself. What will
your father, say, I'd like to know ! As
long as William had sense enough to break
off, I'm sure I'd let him sec that I could
live without him."
" If I had married William before he
became blind, would you have advised me
to desert him?'
" Nonsense! that is quite another story.
If you do go there to-day, J can see how it
will end. It hint your duty to tie yourself
clout to a blind man."
A shiver ran through the girl's reins as
the last words fell upon her ear ; but she
pe l t
added, in her poi nt, deprecating way :
"Mother, I've th ght thie all over." She
did not say pray over it, but pausing,
reverently added after a little time. "I be
lieve I know my d ty, mother."
" I should thin you did!" screamed
Mrs. Warren agai in angry excitement ;
but Ann was al y beyond the reach of
her shrill voice, h rrying across the Beld
towards Mr. Bradley's residence. fr
Mrs. , Bradley was at work in her kitchen,
when Ann Warren softly stole in at the
open (bor. Silence and sadness pervaded
the house, although sunbeams flooded the
mom with their radiance, while the glad
sounds of awakening life came in through
the open windows. She started nervously_

" May I go up. Mrs. Bradley !"

you would have deemed possible, with those
&due eyes so wistfully looking into her's for

enough, if William had broke down." Wil
liam was the first to see that he must give
you up,eut it does seem as if that was a
hard thing to say of us in our trouble."
Ann's lips quivered, and it was long be
fore she found voice to plead : "0! don't
lay up father's hard speeches. Think of '
me now just as you used to, will you not ? '
I came hoping to comfort William, if vou
will only let me see him."
" Well, I don't know as can help it."
said Mrs. Bradley, in an apologetic tone,
for Ann had glided away, determined upon
hearing no refusal.

acquired a mpg (*impotency in that line,
which, however, had,been dissipated by
the swollations which the lower class of
the Selt have lately resorted-to--vis.,
the Bourse. The t raluiactions 'of that enots
moue machine bad literally wiped out our
friend Leopold, and he had reluctlantly
quitted the French capital to try his luck
in "our land of ze geld," as he termed it
in his Franco-German patois. .
Among ail his experience, Leopold bads
at one time, been a workman in the sewers
of Paris—that underground world of Paris
rag pickers—and became familiar with its
life and scenes. Ile - knew about its per
,Ln'quisites and Faits too, and somewhat of
its risks. Arrived in this great city nothing
doubting of its equally extensive subterrs
nean avenue with those of Paris. he be-'

ton Aqueduct, and resemble it in solidity

alone. but ventilation and air to many of
the underground vaults and purlieus of the
Parisian city, which were unseen and un
known to its early residents.
_ For more than three months Leopold
prowled around the piers in the upper part
of the city on the East River side, with the
hopes of seeing a sewer opening out into
the river. He had not sufficient experience
in city life and Croton Board arrangements
to know that entrance could be had through
- the street "man- holes," (apertures left for
the purpose along the centre of the streets,
and covered over with iron covers, opening
with a key). Stich modes of ingress in this
country were under the control of the Mu
nicipal Police• and the entry by them was
beyond the power of a poor rig-picker.
Finally, Meyer got into a sewer which
emptied on Houston street, and the big
tides which followed kept him so close a
prisoner, and by which he came so-near
losing his life, that, getting out, he at once
started West, not only to dispose of his
trains by the enterprise in putting a little
money into a Western Farm : but to see
some relatives near Kaskaskia, in - Illinois,
end then to return to Paris, rag-picking,
with a snug little sum ahead. The first
experience of Meyer in New York Sew
er Life was to get nearly scalded to
death by an exhaust of steam from the fac
tory of Hoe & Co., corner of Broome and
Sheriff street. Ho- stopped about that ke
entity, as near as could be judged, because
of some debris of stove pipe which had be
come lodged in the sewer, and here the
s t ea m was suddenly "let on," and poor
Meyer almost as suddenly "let off." He
continued. however, to retreat along the
extensive bottom of the sewer, to escape
the boiling fury of the vapor floods which
rushed along.
It must not be supposed that Meyer
estrus into t he <ewers improvided with light,
or the usual met hod of working these street
mines to at iv antege. He had lath and ell.
His trotrs and under-clothieg were of
vt ,
India rut; ier: India rubber shoes on his
feet ;a wi sack at his - shoulder ;an iron
rag-picker in his hand, and a small scoop
in his side pocket, with a usual mining
lamp, contrived to protect the user from
the impurity of the atmosphere—these
composed his outfit. His design was to
make a straight, wake for Fifth avenue.
There, he reasoned, would be the cream of
hunting grounas for his trade; and proh.
ably his reasons were good, for be argued
„that in no part of the city do as many
silver spoons, forks and trinkets disap
pear, through the carelessness of servants
and the impurities of soap and waste water,
as in this, the palatial part of our city.
But several difficulties beset the sewer
adventurer before he could gain the prom
' ised land. He knew the direction of the
streets, but not the course of the sewers.—
He advanced westward to Broadway, only
to find that its main sewers Sher* tumid
