Sfbp! I bethink me a moment—
PShasil those are womanish tears;
I have a fair little daughter—
Lily, of tenderest years; •
What if—oh ! horror to think it—
• Gently men, gently, behold,
Out on the rough side lett banging
One shining ringlet of gold.
, I Was always afraid of the water—al
ways from a child. Perblips it was be
cause my grandfather was lost at sea,
and the first I heard that ever made nie
cry was of his ship going -down within
sight of land and of his body - floating to
the shore. with my grandmother's \pic
ture still around. his neck. That hap
pened whet) my grandmother was a
young woman and my grandfather.
himself not live and-twenty ; but when
I was a little thing I used to think 'of
that ship, wrecked so long before I was
horn, until I could almost see the sink,
it - 1g vessel and, the boiling waves and
the'ilead bodies floating, Boating, float
ing'shoreward, and use to wake out of
terrible dreams of drowning with my
baby face bathed in fears.
A fluid of the water; Isaid, but only of
going on it. I lovuo it) , I „c,e, Lly I nc
margin of the river, or down upon the
sandy:•eardiore, and watch the waveo
sparkling and gleaming in the sunlight,
and if ever any one saw water spirits, I
did when the ; little ripples, played' in
and out amongst the tall green reeds
and rushes like so many elfin heads.
I'd stay in such a place for hours, though'
nothing they could say could make me
willing to join any party of pleasure on
the water, where it seemed to me my
sister and tall broad shouldered 'cousins
spent the best of their time. . '
It was a trial to stay' at home, for I
was Sociable and fond of being with
them ; and more than once I sat on the
shore loOking after the .merry, boat-full
and almost crying to think that I could
pot muster, up courage to go also.
Once I sat down thus,,, thinking my
self quite alone, for our garden ran down
to the water's edge,• and no strangers
had a right to pass that way, when I
heard a rustling ,amongst the bushes,
nnd looking up, saw a dark skinned
woman in odd garments making her
way towards me. Probably, I thought,
she meant to beg, and thouh she had
no right to ho there, I had not heart to
speak harshlY to a poorwanderingerea
ture like that. I had been taught to_be
charitable, and I felt in my pocket for
some looselsilver to give her when site
asked almS. •
13u2, when she came close, instead of
begging, she put her head on one side
and looked at me in the oddest way out
of her.big black eyes, and in a kind of a
whine, but with a sweet voice in spite
of that:
Will you have your fortune told,
pretty lady? Cross'my palm' with a bit
of silver and you shall know what your
luck is and who is the gentleman that's
coming tomarry you. "Tisn'toften you
have such a chanee; for I can' read the
stars, and I'll tell you true, my pretty
young lady.".
Well, I was a wild young thing, and
curious, as all girlsare, aboutthat future
time'of wooing and weeding we ill ex
pect to have, and though I knew my
mother would have called it wielded, and
my uncle who was a deacon in the
church, would scarcely have owned
relationship with one who could listen
to such sinful wards and give heed to
them, I couldn't for the life of Me shake
my head and tell the woman to go on.
I looked about to he sure no o,
coming from the house, and thei
a silver shilling in her hand a_ti
out mine.
"It's soft as silk'and white as milk,'
said she. "The kind of a hand 1 . 0 wear
a rich gentleman's Wedding ring.
And then she pored-overit as though
she really saw something besides the
little lines and wrinkles.
"You'll see your lover before night,'
said she.
Likely," said I with a laugh.
"Ile's coming," she said, nodding.
"Look out for him—he's worth looking
for. I see joy and wedding close about
you, beyond." Then she dropped my
hand. .'No matter," said she, "sorrow
comes to everybody; don't look for it.
You'll be married within a year, that's
"No," said "I -want - to know the
rest.' l
shc shook her head.

Fold the coarse shroMl on her bosom,
Lift 114 with jesting and mirth,
Take the worn ring'from her finger—
Little the bauble is worth:
Tangled, her eurls--;-but no Matter,
Push them aH roughly away
Back from her passiOnleas forehead, ,
'Tis but a Magdalen's clay.
Who will come forth to behold her?
No one—so on with the lid ;
Pre the face downward and timer:—
It looks as her poor mother's did;
Just such faint lines on the temples,
Just so deep sunken tbe . eyes;
Rot their remembrance forever,
Living by craft and by
Lay her away from the sunlight—
Why should it rest on her face ?
Put herpine box in the shadow,
Burdened with sin and disgrace;
Nameless the coffin—no matter; '
Sleepeth she well enough so—
Dig hoz' a bolo in the corner,
Where the rank thistle-weeds grori.
Hush, meu, this mirth is untimely;
Carefdlly bear her and slow—
Though a poor victim pf sorrow,
She was a woman you- know;

Though full of frailty remember,
Man is to blame for her sin.

in our own room that night.

It was too soon yet.
Before Captain Marshall went on his

walk in the woods with him, and down
by the little anding where he had first
met, told me at he loved me.

kissed me.

said he. And I was happy, too. oily I
made him vow to Itepp his promise, and

How nearly t4se presages are already
accomplished and how certain they are
of complete and speedy fulfilment, may
be gathered from the following facts.=
About five years ago the .11 , 3tna, Life,

$79,53i,ii7. mince that period its growth
has been something altogether unpre-
eedent in the history of Life Insurance,
its business having been annually
doubled, tripled, and, on one. occasion,
almost, quadrupled, ,till it lias culmina

thousand policies, insuring over forty

any Company in the .United States,
and even as tili amount insured it'is sur

excelled by them in this respect, if 'it
were not deemed incompatible with its
permanent interests to - grant a single
policy for a'suru exceeding ten thous

ably progressive, the YEtna's course has
always been equally/ prudent, safe and
conservative. Emit certainly in its in
