It was , the old story of Mary and her
lamb over again; only it wasn't a lamb,
it was u dog—a black dog, . too;. and
sweet May Gray, though innocent and
young, was not the - simple child of the
story; perahps, after all, the similitude
lay merely in May's pet following her
everywhere. Everybody said he was
the most absurd-looking pet any one
ctirer had; he was exactly like an animat,
ed ball of dirty wool; but May delighted
in him.
Many. were the troubles that t dog led
her into; but the• greatest one, 'in fact
the most severe trial of her life, came
One bright Sunday morning. . , As She

prayer s . and looked up at. the young
minister, - who was. Oi" isitiach' - his
sermon in Bloomingdale that day, what
should she see but Beauty, as her.' pet
-was most inappropriately christened,
snuffing at the pulpit-stairs. ...Sho'could
'scarcely' credit it; she looked down at
.her hymn-book, though she had lost
Vic! , place, then glanced up
Beauty was slowly ascending the stairs;
in a moment he was out of sight, behind
tlik . iTninister's desk.
During that moment May suffered.
something of the sensation drowning
persons are said to have, she had not
dreanind that so much could be crowded
into it 'moment. Presently ho - came in
sight again, wagging his tail compla
cently,- then, aftei. walking around 'the
minister, he disappeared in the vestry.
Two or-three of the small boys who, oc
cupied a corner of the gallery in every
country church, and who are as assidu- .
ous in their attendance ,as the deacons
or elders, tittered out loud' at this; and
the minister, who had seemed to be
very =chi annoyed, quietly closed the
door. -
Compared with / what she now .felt,
May's'stifferings befoie were as nothing;
her factOteemed on fire; her heart. kept
trying tb get above her collar, as she
listened to the scratching and snuffing
at the vestry-thor; then she heard a low
whine, and 'momeniatily expected to
hear Beauty's shrill ; bairk. It seemed
as if the service would . rleverend; when
it did, May didn't stay to beintroduced
to the mituster; - her
children wondered what had become of
her; and Ler young brother under
stood, by the expression of her face,
that he might-as well prepare to'."catch
May bid i& father that he
let Beauty out after she went to church.
The utxt week the minister ,called at
the Grays. May was sittiffe by the
Paaloriwiadow, and saw him coming.
She noticed now, what had escaped her

taste he' was dressed, so simple, yet
,She wished her father wouid

Her mother waitout, so she knew . she
must entertain 'him; and though some
people—principally old maids, or
mothers of several particularly homely
daughters—hinted that May Gray was
somewhat of a flirt, she dreaded meet
ing him. •
But it wasn't nearly so bad - us she
feared; and before he bud put his hat
down on the ball-table, and cane into
the parlor, khe felt quite at home with
him. Au le r passed away rapidly.
He gave May a laughable account of his
annoyance the. Sabbath before, and
said,—: -
"I wonder whose dog it is; ihe poor
est specimen or a canine I ever saw."
111 , 1 y kept a silence; she felt herself
guilty, both as tegarded Beauty and
the minister, and /die was quite relieved
when he bade her good afternoon,. and
turned to take his hat. But his hat was
not there ! He looked udder the table,
and behind the door—no bat was to be

May,. indignantly. "But, no; he isn't
to blame this time—he has gone fist
Then she called the servant-girls; but
they had not been into the ball that
afternoon. What was to be 'done ? It
- wasn't clerical, -to say the least, for him
to go Berme bareheaded. May suggest; ,
ed that he wear one of her father's bats,
which hung
, on the rack—and it did
seem to be the only thing that could be
done; so - he walked off with the pleas
act consciousness that Bray stood be
hind the curtains of the..parlor-window,
laughing at him;- and ,he did - expect
every moment that the hat would slip
over his ears and rest on his shoulders.
He didn't Make • any more calls that
afternoon, but shut-himaself in his study,
and, I am afrai4, ,, meditated more upon
the "slings, and arrows of outrageous
fortiine," . than -upon the text he had
chosen- for his next sermon---" Let
patience have, her . perfect" work."
Alas - -for the blindness of "the hu
man 1 He had , fancied, when he,
decided on that text, that he could draw
one or two illustrations •from his own
life; now he was not worthy to speak of

The next morning he received ai note
of apology from Mr. Gray,.accompany
ing the gift of a new hat.

When Paul Morwood rose to read the
first hymn, on that eventful Sabbath, a
feeling of human .;loneliness fell upon
him, though God was With him, and
that gave him great peace; but . there
were no eyes looking up at him through
the rose-hued glasses of, hopeful Ow,
tion; no heart woul4 quicken its belting
because he was speaking; and in thO
days that came after, befell deep
ly unhappiness of being surrounded
by strangers; but gradually he began
to find at the. Grays an atmosphere of
home. Mrs. Gray had that delightful_
motherliness whiCh includes all the
young in its watchful { - affeation. Mr.
Gray was a sympathetic friend, and a
man. of wide culture. Tom, .with hie
boyish prank's, supplied another ale
meat; _and bray He had not yet
ackriowlealged , hoW r..much of the

Ono morning, Mr. Morw,aht ("ailed

"You seem destined to lose some

saidMuy., . And he smiled to himself as
he'answered; "Yes."
Not long after Tom came running
into the parlor; with the remnants of a
fine,• cambric handkerchief, 'on one
airier of which Mr. tlorwood's initials
were embroidered. .
. "I found. • • fire. kennel," he
cried: "Beauty was tearing it into

Then she ran out of the room, and did
not stop until, out-of breath, she reach!

ens as they had lieen,disappesiling, one

she vanisher. She hurried out of

how interested 'hoshad become in her;. how he had delighted to watch her

He hild spent a year only at Bloom

a church in a distant city: Every one
could see that a change. 'was good for

It happened; somehow, that when he
went over to the Grays' -to bid them
good-by, May sat alone by the same
window in thee - parlor Uthere:.he saw her
the first time. She was very much em
barrassed as she rose to meet hini.
"I came to' say good-by to your
mother. I did not hope to meet you,
Miss Gray," he said.
May blushed, and stammered some
thing, they both knew to be untrue,
about not • having met him more fre
qtiently„ and regretting that her mother
was not at home.
'Why do you leave. Bloomingdale?"
asked May, . trying s to say something
commonplace. •
"I think I may r_ tell you the whole,
"reason," he said, with a look,. of en
treaty. "My. illness is, of Course, part
of it; but my life here has been a con 4

A correspondent tells of au amusing
incident that Occurred last week on the
train that was crossing the Rocky
Mountains: A traveling peddler under
took in the ears to sell a large' "dia

this pile. "Humph," Wahl the miner,
' after critieally examining the ring,.
'.they've got common stone ill) in` the
digging where I've been that'll cut that
diamond all to pieces !" • "If you'll find
a piece of keno that will cut thafaite•
mond Pllgive it to you," >replied the
peddler. ."All. right," said
. the m iner,
"if I can't cat that 'diamond' with it.
stone I'll buy it of you." Thereupon
the miner took the ring in'hisland and
'pulled from his vest pocket ! a small
,piece of brown 7 looking stone, similar to
a bit of dark - flee-stone, except the
grain was very fine; and with this he
proceeded cooly to • cut and:scratch the
--fdiamond' with several ugly-looking
gashes. A . group of passengers that had
gathered about the miner were amazed,
but while they smiled the peddler with
his 'diamond' withdritw discomfited.
"That little piece of brown stone," ex
plained the miner, "is a piece of cortm
i drum that I got in the rocky mountains
1 and it's the best diamond testijr . in the
world. It won't scar a genuine,diamond,
but it will everlastingly cut up pieces of

At the approach of, commencement a
party of college students in -Syracuse,
N. Y._„the other day, decided to indulge
in a 'midnight supper and applied to
various establishments to See on what
ternis ihey could have ,one furnished.
A sudden spurt of rivalry seized two
caterers, who began to underbid each
other in the liveliest .way. When the
prices came down from $2, a cover to
$1.50, from that to $l, and thence to 50 .
cents, the students' committee began' to'
meditate cfosing a bargain lest the gen
erous man should repeat his rashness
and retract. While 'they still delayed ,
there came another bid- that eclipsed
anything yet. An entelprising soul,
reluctant to let }anybody: take his trade
away, was willing to supply the-supper
for nothing—drinkables - only to be
charged extra. "We had some thought,"
said one of the partakers afterwards,
."of waiting to - see whether the other
fellow wouldn't come around presentl y
and offer to pay' us a small bonus - for
condescending to' dine with him; but
calmer 'counsels prevailed and .we de
cided not to ride a willing horse to
'death. Well, the spread was a very
good one; its cheapness' warmed our
sympathies; we resolved at an early
stage in the proceeding that we ought
to do something as a testimonial to the
'house,, tip - each man ordered un a bottle
of wine. Then a goodnatured dispute
arose here and there over friendly treats
and exchanges, which could be settled
only by a fresh draft on the cellar."
Here he passed his band across his eyes
and moved it around to the, back of hit'.
head as if recalling a disagreeable sen
sation lately suffered there. "To cut a
long story short," ,he ; continued, "my
share of the bill handed in .a few days
afterward was nine dollars and a frac
tion, and for the life of me I couldn't
prove it. exorbitant. "
