A group of echool-children stood
chattering at. the street corner, as
school-children will, hut underneath
it all, there seemed to run a thread
of gravity, Huch as is not usual in
One of their number stood a little

a land day to the chiidien.
The town had been a very patri
otic' one, and, fr jtil dize, none had
eut to ihii fiout so many brave
So it happened that, among the
cbildieu there waa hardly one who
had not a personal intercut iu the
proceedings, and who could not lay
claim to aome particular ''grave," as
that of a near relative. For days
before the eventful time, the chiN
dren would discuss the proceedings,
and lay plans tor meeting andj,)er wary search, when, turuiug
marching m a body to the various
cemeteries, leeling themselves a ! UPU what she sought, about thirty
very large and importaut balfoflfeet aY- It was a neglected

decoration, iu which all took part,
each child made au effort to deco-
rate k-he.r own grave," as they were!
termed by the children.
But, a lew months before, there
had come mong them from an
eastern city, a pretty little fair-
haired .t-irl, about eight years of age.

i AH till tosday, when in discussing
itbe coming ceremonies, they had
remembered to lheir dismay, that
she bad no relatives buried in their
cemetery ; worse than this, she had
lost no relatives la the war. This
was a great shock to these jealous
little patriots, and they hardly knew
how tp recompile themselves to the
J lacts of the case. They had gen
erally concluded ihat she was not
to blame for the nnfoituuaie cireum1
stance, tiut while pity rilled their
heaits, of eom0e ohe could not join
them in their solemn procession.
Doro:hy Kent had never Lefore

Well, all iuigo

Kent, smpatieut for tho moment to
airive when the bands would begin
to play their solemn dirges and the
wagons would go arouod collecting
She Lad had a talk with her moth -
er last night, and a uew idea had
como to Dorothy, so she, too, was
busy flitting from bush to plant,
gathering, not only for the general
dicoration, but a scetial bunch for
Haik! There it is! The music!
A moment more and tbe great wag-
on had come and gone, Dorothy's
eontributiou being carelully laid in
with the rest.
"Now, mamma, may I got''
Hardly pausing for a reply she
skipped out into the garden again,
aud taking her little boquet iu her
hand, started for the nearest ceme
tery. Beautiful indeed it looW-d, this
"city ot the dead,'' its Inhabitants
lying side by side, silently, mnVr
the shadow of the great npire.
Trees dotted it here and there, and
the quiet beauty impressed little
! Dorothy oidy with its perfect rt;.
pose. Even to a child there wan
nothing of awe m the perfect, scene.
She had come here because she
knew that, it waa the laat place to
bo visited, and :-.he felt that, fhe
niDst. be alone to carry out her plan.
It would have thrown her into an
agony of mortification to confide
her scheme even to J.er beloved
.-j lowly she wandered tound the
enclosure, beemiug to be ever seek
ing something she aid not fiud. She
did not seem to be attracted by
m numents or inscriptions, for she
passed them all by with iudiffereut
eye. Gradually her face assumed a
disappointed expression and she
seemed almost inclined to give up
her head to the letf, her glance fell
that oue could hardly recognize the
mound beneath. With a look of
solemn pleasure she hastened to the
spo', and softly uiurmuring "Here
be ks!'' she gently dropped the llow.
crs upon the mound, tenderly ar
ranging tbero until tbey eaited her
fasey- Then she sat herself down
and thought. Dorothy was given
to thinking, far beyond her years.
Who shall say what solemn message
was delivered to that baby soul as
she sat there in self communion ! A
!)ghi step aroused her slightly, but
so deep iu reverie was she that the
stranger seemed a part of her wak
ing dream. He paused, this tall
bearded stranger, and gazed curi
ously at the demure little figuie
watching the negTected mouad. An
irre&istable impulse led him to ad

Bertie's father be her atep-hua
The whole course of reasoning
was certainly uuique, aud had been
carried out with much ingenuity.
Little Dorothy had evidently taken
much satisfaction in her close rela
tionship to her mother's "stepihus
bind," and it seemed a pity to dis
turb her peace of mind. It was au
innocent delusion let her have it !
"Bat what is your name?" he
asked, suddenly, to change the subject-

4 Come, then ! we ll go together.
Quick ! Where do jou live, child ?
Come ! coue! crine!-' Obeying the
commanding voice, Dorothy was
s on trotting rapidly by his side,
trying in vain to ke&p up with his
A short walk biought them to the
house, and Dorothy had politely de
posited her strange visitor in the
parloi, while she went to call mam

claimed, entering her mother's
room, "there's the queerest man

Dorothy at the top of her voice, lor
by this time her mother was at the
foot of the staiis Dorothy fallowed
as rapidly as her stoq l2gs would
carry her, for cariosity, that great
factor in nin&n events, w&s urging
her uu ward. She reached the door
iu timo to hear her mother give a
short, smothered cry, and entered
to ee h-r fall back into the arms
of the stranger, in a dead faint. Top
frightened to move, the child stood j
rooted to the spot, while i3e man
whom she had brought home seem
ed to be trying o force some horrid
stuff out oi a bottle down ber
"Let my mother alone !' she cried,
at last finding her voice. "Eoea!
Bridget! Bertie ! Came quick, oh,
come quick !" she s?roamed, running
to the door. At this moment ber
mother opened bee eyes and looked
aiound in a dazed kind of way.
Then her eyes fell upon Dorothy's
"man" and she smiled.
Poor Dorothy ! this she bad not
expected, aud she sat down to awai,t

Nearly all the disagreeable habits
which people take up comes at first
from mere accident of want of
thought says a tboughiful writer.
They might easily be dropped, but
they are persisted m until they be'
comes a second nature. There are
d:sigteeable habits of body, like
mowliug, winking, twisting the
fi ouio,r;iting the nails, contiuually
p ckiDg at some'hing, twirling a
key or fumbling at a chain, drum-
u ing with the fiogutes, crewiug
or twisting a chair, or whatever you r
Uj your bands on. Don't do any
ol these things. There are much
w orse things than these, to be sure;
but. wo are only speaking of these
li!.tl thiugs that are only annoy-
icg when they are persisted iu.
Then there are habits of speech with
": oo see," or "yon know,'' ,:uoiv a,-'
"jinda' "see here' "let me tel
you,'' indistinct ntteraice, &bap,
nnsal tones : avoid them all. Stop
and think what you are going to
say and then let every word drop
from your !ips ju?t as perfect gas a
new silver eio. Before you know
it, you will find that your habits
huve burdened luto a coat of mail
that you cannot, get rid of without
a terrible effort. 11c.
