LIZZIE IN THE ' MILL.
BY GRACE- GREKSWOOD.
Many years ago, in -a pleasant village of New
Englaiid, lived a little giH whose true try'i a:n
about ,to relate L,izzie htOne, the omy daughter ot
the miller. -: ' .
Lizzie was a child whom every -body loved : not
i only; because she wti.s so pretty, lively, aud 'iiititi-
gent, but for her being so swev-t, geiii-e, and peaceable-
so truly good.,. Liizie bad" two brothers a
few years older, than herWelf,.who were very fond, j jessed them so raariv times last night. Ed
Of her, and of whom shevvas very fond. These j die take care ofiny flowers; and. boys, don't miss
three childrenalwavs went to school and to-church
together, aiid played ki perfect sigrek?ment.
It Jiappeneti. tiat one suuny Autiilnn afternoon
hie y had a visit from two little "gir!&, tiieir c juin-, r
rho lived about a utile distant. They had a wild, i
' joyous time ; they j.iayeii lu-.the yard, in the barii,
,ud all Over the! house. Mr, fctbiie, who was a
kind, pleasaut. woman, looked on and laughed, if
she did not miiigle in tkeir sjort. : She got them
aniee yearly tea by themselves: and when the visit
oirs after one last jnerry game, were about leaving,
she said' to Lizzie. ' ; ' , .'
'Yjjur brothers.' will go home with Alice and
- Celia You may. go with them "as far as-the mill ;
but be sure stop Uiere, and conie lidme with jour
lather ',. ;- ' . : V " - . 1 . j ' . '
j As the cousins set put, laughing and frolicking n-
long, Mrs. 'Stone stood In the, little front portico of
her cottage, looki ngi after theuu iis they went, down
the lane and thinking f liat handsome, arid happy,
and, atovo all, hat good-ehirdreii they were. She
( smiled at Lizzie's ahectioiiaie way of taking leave
. - of her, thougli jshe wa-s to Hb gone so-short a time.
Lizzie never parted from her '".mother, even for a
r half-hour, widiuut kissinglier lovingly, and biddirg
her irood-bve in a voice as sweet ruid tender as tiio
a dove. Now, as Mrs. 5to;ie went into
the house, she said sottly to nerelt, ' lt ts neariy
ten years since God gave me that child, and she
has never yet caused me one lifomcnt's sorrow."
- The children played so much along the.roaU,-and
stopped so otteu to p'ck f!overs and berries, that
it was nearly dark when they reached ihe .iinll'.
Then Jwhh the girls came to part, they had yet so
manyrthiugs to tell 'to each other, so many! .tnYTta
tions to give, so many gyfclbye's. to say,'-it w,as iio
wonder that they iiiigevl a while. I
k It seemed that Lizie could not let her couins
go. She parted from tlicm, m her loving way, m
' mauy j tiines that her brother grew a lime impati-
ent, and George, the eldest, said, .- - ;
' .'. . Why, sister, I don't see Lut all Ned aud 1 will
have to help you in your kissing, or you'll never
get tlirough." ! '
1 Then Alice and Celia, blushing and laughing,
broke away from their cousin, arid ran fast down a
little hill towards their home. Ike boys sopn ovjer-
took tliem ; abU Lizzie, niter vatchij)g tne group a
while, aid thinking -how
ias (jtjd to tve her
the? din it niHde.)aiii by the dartuess ; for night
was fast corainir or. - She CRlled her father's name,
and he answered ; tiut the maeliiiieryinadeo much;
noise that slie did-net lie.r. Ihinking that he haU
already gone,- she turned to gt home, alone. She
A took- a Vway she had often .safely taken, over the
' fluwoj' ilia great water-wheel. Bnt to-night she
was bevjrldered lost her footing, and fell otf on to
the wheel which whirled her down, crushing and
tearing her in a shocking manner I It happened
.that just at tiiKt moment her father, thinking that
-Lizzie had been sent .to cali him home, stopped the
' mill, and began to search for her. Led by her cries,
f the came to; the wheels and there found what had
, "occurred. " '.
" Are you badly hurt, my daughter F he asked, -
m great gnei and terror.. . v .
Yes, lather, I seem to be all crushed to pieces.
and I cannot ttir ; but I thmk I sh.tll live till you
get me out. Leave me here, and go fur help."
..' ' . The neighborhood was soon rousea, anu many
.men hurried, with saws and axes, to the mill. lut
they found that only one or two ould work at a
time inputting away the strong heavy timbers, and
thas it would be some hours tetore Lizzie could be
taken from the cruel place where she was held so
fast and crushed sV dreadfully ; and they said that
- to" move the wheil backward or forward, might
kijl her at once. V- - . ; '
"Whon Mr Stonp 'came, one of the men let
-. down a light into the wheel so that she could sop-
- uci jwi buiiu. . lieu Sue Sitn jjiiuvo """ t
and the Weeding arm held toward her, she shriek
ed and cried bitterly. But Lizzie called up to Lei
las sweetly, and cheerfully as she-had ever spoken
" 4u her life, and said,
. ' .pon't cry,!mother ! They will get me out be
fore long ; keep up good courage, and pray to God
. And io the continued to talk, hour after hour.
such atriabw cuusius, uch ntitp brotlters, and such
!- . dear parentstta 16ve turned aWi vent into the
' She found it troinc and almost friylitened by
while the men kept cdtting and sawing at the great
timbers ! so 6he cheered and comforted her parents,
and her poor brothers, when they too canwi to the
mill. .' ' j i
." Once her voice grew very low and indistinct
then it ceased altogether ; the doctor looked down,
and said she had fainted away, and they sprinkled
water upon her. As soon as she revived, she began
again to. say " comforting things, and to beg her
mother and brothers not to cry. . She said she did
not suffer so much pain as at first, and that she
was sure she should live to be carried home.
It was nearly midnight when the last timber
that held her was sawed away, and a workman
lifted her gently up ind laid' her in her father's
aruiSi The pain of bding moved caused the poor
child to faint again, and she did not jevive until
she had been carried home. 'When she opened
her eyes,sbe found herself on her own little bed,
with her dear father, and mother and brothers at
her side. ' .
1 The doctor carefully dressed Lizzia's wounds, arid
gave her some wpium to make ' her sleep ; but he
told her father and mother thatishe could not pos--sibly
get well. When he heard the dreadful words,
Mr. .Stone groaned, and covered his face with his
hatuis ; aud, for a tew moments, Mrs. Stone jeaaed
hr."had on . her husband's fchoulder, and cried.
Then, lifting her eyes, and clamping her bands, she
said, "Thy wiil, oh Lord, be done and went anil
sat down calmly by Lizzie's side, audJ hatched her
till she slept. . !:'."'' !
The ixor little girl remained sleeping roost of
Ithe next day. She would often wake, and ak for
water ; but she then fseemed hardly to know.where
she was, or who was with her. Her cousins, Alice
aud Celia, came to see- her; but she ' did not re
cognize them, and they went away, sobbing bitter-
Earlj- in the night, however, she awoke, and
seemed tetter. She knew all about heraitd sniiled"
on them, but said she must leave them, very soon.
She told her fethex that she wanted to hear him
pray on ee more '; and Mr. Stone knelt down by her
bedside, and asked God to take safely honie.the
little daughter lie had given them, and . thanked
Ilini l'.'jr leaving hep with them so lonar. l Then
Lizzie said to her mother, " Will you sing be just
one verse of the hymn i love so much, ' Jesus sought
ntc ;"'IIer mother, tried, but she could riot sintr
for weeping; and Lizzie said, " Never mind-wht re
i I am -going,, there is:, beautiful singing. Yet it
seettis to.ine, I shall hear no voice so sweet as
! yours, innnima. Why .do j-ou cry ? Only think,
i mamma' if I should live, "now, howf crooked and
i sickly I should be. 1 might be a pdyr hunciiback,
ana g:ve a great deal oi trouWe una sorrow ;to voii m
t uij. WHit not be betU-r to bury up this crushed
iKidy, ana let the pleasant grass grow over it, and
have a' u'e w ;id glorious bo.ly,' saeh as the angels
have ?" ' - . , : ;z ,f
As she spoke these -words, she smild, and did -not
weep; but when, afterwards, she asked for a
faithful house-dog, and her pretty Maltese i kitten,
and ttiey were brought to her, she burst into teats,
. . ? G owl-bye,, .old Bose! gocnl-bye, Kitty !" 'she.
1 cry, mamma, to part from these, because
I never, never shall see them airain ; tor thev have
no souls, poor things ! But you ?md papa will co;n e
to Ilea veil betore m:iny years ; an J you, too, brothers ''
if you.are gviotl boys,"
. - A little while after this, she said, " Georjgie, give
m A lira and Clla. and toll thfhi i sm
me too much in vour play5."
-. After Ivinor very quiet for some moments she
snoke, and said,
Mamma, are the shutters open, and has the
morning come very brightly f" ;
" No, uiv laughter," her niotbgr ansTrrrrU, f
is still dark night."
"Oh, then," said Lizzie, "it must be the win
dows of GodYleautiful palace I see, with pleasant
light shininr through. I am almostihere 1 Good
bye, mamma, and papa, and brothers, good-bye !''
And, with a smile spread over her face, .and Lizzie
stretched out her arms, looked upward, and so died !
When Lizzie lay in her coffin, that smile was on
her. sweet face still brighter and purer than ' the
Wlhite roses. 'that lay tfpon her pillow and Mrs,
Stone tried not to Jet her tears fail upon it; for she.
said, " God lists taken back a little angel. He lent
to "me for si few years, and why should I weep for
my happy, happy child ?" j

PROSPECTUS OF THE
North Carolina University Magazine.
'"pHE Students of the University of North Carolina, having '
X deliberated in a body on the expediency of establishing a
literary orgajji, and well convinced of the mental and perhaps
moral benefit which may result therefrom, have resolved to
execute their deaicn. They take this appropriate means of
informing the public. No legitimate department of literature
will be excluded from the Magazine, and it iB presumed none
wijl be held objectionable, provided the article be thoroughly
.winnowed of thechaff of improprieties. Every effort will be
exerted to. interest its readers with originalty, and "enlighten
with valuable information. We do not indeed expect to
produce aught 'which the world will not willing let die. f
but as we are aiding in the purpose which has placed us at
College, on this account we may justly expect encouragement.
To those who take an interest in us personally, and to those
who sympathise to any degree in the ends " which prompt us,
we appeal unceremoniously and with sure hopes of success.
The Editorial Corps will always consist of six members of
the Senior Class The Magazine will be issued monthly,
