Mr. Freeman, in a gloomy voice. And as
they walked hoiiioward they di-couraged
each other, and made darker the clouds that
ob.-curcd their whole horizon.

wife and children were gathered, and with
out speaking lo any one, seated himself in
a chair, and leaniug hid head back closed j
his eyes. His countenance wore asad,wca-l

thus for only a few minutes, wheu bis wife
said in a tearful voioc :
" More troublo again."
" What is tho matter now V asked Mr.
Walcott, almost startiug.
" John has been ft nt home from school."
! "What!" Mr. Walcott partly rose from
"He has been suspended forbad con

Mr. Walcott, excited a3 much by the mm
nor ia which his wife conveyed unpleasant
information as by tho information itself,
started up, under the blind impulse of tho
niomctit, and going to the room where John
baJ Lcen scut on coming home from school,
punished the boy severely, aud this without
; listening to the explanations which the poor
! child tried to make him hear.
" Father," said the boy, with forced calm
ness, after tha cruel stripes had ceased;
" I wasn't to blamo and if you will go with
me to tho teacher, I cau prove myself in
nocent." I Mr. Walcott had never known his son to
tell an untruth, and the words fell with a
rebuke upou bis heart.
i "Very well, we will see about that," he
answered, with forced sternnuss ; and lea
ving the room he went down stairs, feeling
'much more uncomfortable than wh.'n be
,-went up. Again he sealed himself in bis
argo chair, and again leaned back bid wea
ry head and closed his heavy eyelils. Sad
der was his face than before. As bo sat
thus his eldest daughter, in her sixteenth
vcar, came and stood by him. She held a
paper in her hand.
" Father;" he opened his eyes ; " hero's

" I am afraid not," answered Mr. Wal
cott, half in despair.
" Nearly all the girls will bring in their
money to morrow, aud it mortifies me to be

The daughter spoke fretfully. Mr. Wal
cott waved her aside with his hand, aud she
wont off muttering aud pouting.
" It is mortifying," said Mrs. Walcott, a
ttle sharply ; " anil I ilon t won tier tuat
Helen feels annoyed about it. The bill has
to bo paid, aud I don't sec why it may not

To this Mr. Walcott made no answer.
The words but added auotber pressure to

Tho whole evening passed without the
occurrence of a single incident that gave a
healthful pulsation to the siek heart of Mr.
Waleotl. No thoughtful kluduess was man
ifested by any in: tuber of the family ; but,

supply tho means of self gratification.
No wonder, from the pressure which was

couraged. He retired early, and sought to

Let us look in for a few moments- upou j
Mr. Freeman, a friend and neighbor of Mr. '
Walcott. He, also, had come homo weary,'
dispirited and almost sick. The trials of
the day bad been uuusually tevcrc, aud
when he looked anxiously forward to scan'
the future, not even a gleam of light was
aeon along the black horxou. I
As he stepped across tho threshold of hid
dwelling, a pang sh t through his heart,
for the thought e-iuie : "How slight the j
present ln',J upon all these comforts." .
Not fcr himself, but for bis wife and cL.il- ,
drt-n was the pain.
" Father' conic !" cried a glad little voice
on the stairs, tho moment his footfall soun
ded iu tho passage ; then quick, pattering
feet were heard aud iheu a tiny I'jmh was
stringing into his arms. Hefore reaching
the Mttt'i'g room above, Alice, the c.dost ,
daughter, was by his aide, her aim drawu ;
fondly within his, aud bi r loving eyes lift-j
cd to his face. I
" Aro you not late, dear?" It was tho j
gentle yoice of Mrs. Freeman.
Mr. Frttmau could cot trust himself to
answer. Ho l deeply troubled iu
piril to assume at the moment a cheerful
tone, and he bad no wish to saddtn the
hearts that loved him, Vj letting the dt-

It was impossible, under such a burst of
heart sunshine, for the spirit of Mr. Freeman
long to remain shrouded. Almost imper
ceptibly to himself gloomy thoughts gava
place to more cheerful ones, and by tho
time tea was ready, he had half forgotten
the fears which had so haunted him through
lint they could not be held back altogeth

the eveu'm, by an unusual silence and ah--traction
