KLady's Waterfall
She wore a monstrous waterfall, the
night when first we met—
roll, half horse, half human hair, hung
in a beaded net;
It rested on her shoolders, for the first
time put to use;
And she looked just like a Digger squaw
when lugging a papoose ;
Or, taking a good rearward squint at
head and hair together,
Just like a horse with tail tied - up in
very muddy weather I
And she stooped beneath the burden
she thought was passing fair,
With her dainty head drawn backwards,
and her nose turned up in air ;
I saw her but a moment, so gractiful
and so tall,
Bending, sweating 'neath the harden of
her cherished waterfall.
Oh ! when will Fashion give us back
the charms wo prized so long,
The web of silken splendoi---lhe theme
O.f many a song—
The shining hair that kissed the brow
in many an airy curl,
And gave the crowning beauty to every
lovely girl ; ?
When will Sense resume its rule again
—Fashion receive a check,
And oar loved ones no more carry round
a pillow on the neck ?
A thing composed of horses' tails, of
wool, of jute, of cord—
A monstrous, mean disfigurement, by
every man abhorred,
A load upon their shoulders, at home s
abroad, at ball,
'A foolish bag—a senseless bump they
call a waterfall ?''
From the Saturday. Evening Post.
Out of the Depths.
Avery dreary place it was—a 'base=
meat room , in the rear of a large tene
ment house, its one windOW looking out
into a back yard where a dozen ragged
unkempt children were playiug--Irish,
Germans, Americans, and among the
rest, one little negro boy, his black face
ashine with jollity. A dreary enough
place, the room of which I i bave spoken,
the most undesirable in the house, and
therefore the lowest priced, in one
corner stood a'tumble down bedstead,
in another a rickety , table, while one
side was occupied by a stove minus one
leg, its place 'being supplied by bricks
piled one upon another: Near the
stove, upon a shelf against the wall, was
a meagre assortment of dishes, and un
derneath these a still more meagre dis
play of cooking utensils ; while in the
centre of the room, upon an old chair
turned down to serve as a bench, stood
a tub half full of clothes, over which a
girl of perhaps fointeen years was bend.
A very ordinary looking girl yon
would have called her. And she was.
Not at all graceful or interesting—gals
of that age are not:apt - to be, even with
the advantliges - of dress'and Careful cul

less brown hair, which, with proper cars,
would have heen pretty.: An ordinary
looking girl, lacking even the animation
that makes youtliattractive-; compelled
to drudge day by day atlthetiostmenial
work. The kettles of hot water over
the fire, the sloppy floor, the tub; and
washboard, told the story. Ste was a

self, Bet this morning the =plain face
wore an added shade of.gravity, for Mrs.
Flynn 'had been taken suddenly and
dangeroutily ill, and if she died . and the
customers took their-work to other pla
•ces, what was to become of Martha, who
feared, not Without reason, that-people
would be unwilling to trust:their clothes
to so young and inexperienced' a girl.
The prospect looked dark enough.
Beside the Window, looking out with
longineeyes fipoii the noisy game going
on in the yard, stood a scinare, chubby
little girl 'of ` six years—Martha's sister
Gertrude, Gerty, as everybody Galled
her. An odd looking child,,arrayed iu
a dress a world too short for her, the
belt coming just under her arms. She
had a round, rosy face, and a 'vigoious
pair of lunge, if one might jadge from
her shouts at some - of the specimene of
ground and lofty tumbling executed 'by
one orthe boys outside.
Presently some one knocked at the
door. Chubby-face ran to,open it. A
young man stood on the thresbold—tall,
blu6-eyed, and handsome enough for a
prince. A gentleman, evidently, for he
lifted his hat to the young girl in that
miserable room with as much courtesy
as if she had been the highest lady in
the land.
"This is Miss Martha Reynolds, I be
Martha blushed in embarrassment.
No one had eyer called her Miss Rey
nolds.before, and she was not accustom
ed to meet persons of his grade in life.
"Yes, sir ~ that is n 4. name," she
"Mine is Belt. Mrs. Flynn sent me
to yoh. She is ill, and cannot do my ; bakshe tells. me that
you have worked for her a great deal, so
I came to see if you would not wash for
me till she gets well."
Martha hesitated. -
"I don't know whether I -could suit
you, sir," with a_glance - at his faultless
apparel. "I ain't used to doing up fine
"These are not fine," he said, undoing
the neat parcel which he carried. , "Just
plain things, you see. My shirts and
collars are all clean-4notigh to last me
several-weeks. You can do these, can
you not ? -
The girl looked relieved and assented
The young man paused a moment ,to
warm his hands before he drew, on his
gloves. He spoke pleasantly to little
Gerty, who
_had dra,wn near him with
the trusting confidence of childhood
asking her what her name was, and if
she wasn't almost large enough to go to
I'se big enough to go, but I ain't
got an; good close.. I knows all my A,
B, C's e though," replied the child.
"Do you? That's fine," said the
young - man. "Who taught you ?"
" Marthy teached me."
"She's a good sister, isn't she?"-
"Yes, sir, she's going to 'buy me a
party new dress some day. She scolds
me sometimes, though," naively:
The interlocutor had , not expected
this answer. He glanced at Martha,
but she was looking another way. , He
could not tell whether =she had heard
Gerty's words or not. With' a half:ut
tered apology he - arose to go, giving
Martha his address that she Might know
where to bring his clothes when they
were done.
A week afterward he came again to
pay . her for her work. "He was
, well
suited," he said kindly, in answer to her
inquiry, as "he t handed her the money,
and threw Gerty into raptiires by the
.present of a primer gay with pictuiei.-
The child's delight in her newly adquir
ed treasure opened, Ow way to a; little
conversation with the elder stater. A.
few questions put skillfull.y. by, the em
bryo barrister elicited the information
that the father of the two girls had been
'a journeyman .bricklayer, and met his
death by falling from a building. Their
mother being very poor had• moved into
this house because the rents were lower
here than elsewhere, anilsinee her death
they had fereaimid" for the same reason
and the elder sister by washing and
scrubbing, cied - unything else that she
could get to do, Managed to keep - up
the rent of the poor room and make a
living, such as it was, hersiilf and lit
Gerty. She had never - . attended
school Much,--conld'read and wilts and
cipher a little—and had not been iniaide
a , church for-three' years:
So much she told him,.bit by bit as
he asked her--quietly,. listlessly, as if
tbe whole was quite it matter, of course,
and would in alllirobsbility , be the same
to tikaeDd, " •
This was a new4hUse. of life to the
your law-studebt, to whom with his ge
nial, hopeful nature, the girl's apathy
seemed sbinethingaterribly strange' and
unnatural. What should he,-reared .in
affluence acid- surrOhrided from his ciadlii
with all that could refine and ennoble—
what could he know of the hirdening
arid 'deadening effects which grief- and'
povttrty 'aindkery raisbcirition
with such people AS she was forced to
come in daily contact with, had wrought
on this girl.
He 'wondered whitt-tbe future had in
store:for her. What possibilities there
might be in her nature which fatr,ortible
circumstances would have-

contrasted its brightness, and elegance,
and comfort, with the squatter he htll
just left; and the welcome awftiting him
with the dreary, friendless #Ssistence,_of
Martha Reynolds ;,and ponderingthese
things he made ~a resolution.
Martha came regularly, twice a week,
to receive and return Mr. Belt's clothes.
Her employer had always some pleaeant

graceful ways ,Of Miss Grace Edwards
whom she often met flitting through
halls and dogrwairs, all seemed like a
vision of encharitMent to Martha Rey
nolds. Little by little she came to be
more careful of her own persOnal-appear •
ance ; to keep her-hair nicelrarranged- ,
her clothes more neatly mended. She
noticed, too, that the family at , Mrs,
Grant's, and even- the • servants,' used
very different language from that which
she was accustomed to hear among the
people who lived in her own , neighbor,
hood ; and insensibly, , without be,stoW

and acting that augured well for-her Cu tare improvement. Charles Belt was ,

,"-" A hen that had gone through
a clay mud-puddle, went with her mud
dy feet into a sugar house. She left
her tracks , on a- pile of sugar. It was
observed by some one, that wherever the
tracks were the sugar was whitened.
Mills led to some experiments. The re
sult was that wet clay came to be used
.in refining sugar. It is used in this way :
—The sugar is put into earthen jars ,
