FISH ING TACKLE OF ANY DESCEIPXION. The Deserter. Well! BJi’ suppoain’ he did desert ? What’s that to thee, surly Dan ? Thou hast no lads in thy own cot, Or thou wonldna’t talk so, my man! Bat stop till thqu’st heard it all out, Dan, Till you know how it ended down there, An’ you won’t blame the lad nor the widow When you hear what they both had to bear. I was down at the cottage this momin’ When the soldiers marched up to the door, An’ said as they’d got the Queen’s orders To take away Georgie once more! An’ in they all come, the Queen’s soldiers, With their handcuffs for poor George's ^ wrists ^ ^ e Queen’s got more right than the mother— Neither him nor his mother resists! Poor lad, he wam’t fit for a soldier, With his nineteen years only just told: He was mad with his lass when he ’listed, An’ his life for a shillin’, he sold. Yes, sergeant, he’ll “ stick to his bargain,” He’s there, in the room at the back, An’ as truly as blood-hound» ye’ve scented An’ followed the lad on liis track! But he starred for a week in the marshes Afore he crawled in at that door! An’ weary, broke down, an’ half dyin’. He dropped, faintin’ popped, on the floor! So step gently, sergeant, step gently, For God’s sake, men, don’t let your guns clank, An’ the mothers who bore ye, an’ nursed ye, For this mother’s sake shall ye thank! An’ the big bearded men laid their muskets Alongside the old cottage wall: Aa’ we all of us went in so softly You couldn’t ha’ heard a footiall! An’ there she was, bent o’er his pillow, " Her face hidin’ his from our sight. An’ her hands in his black hair was twinin’, An’ lookin’ like dead hands! so white! The sergeant’s hand placed on her shoulder, The sergeant’s voice whisperin’ low, Made her start, made her rise, made the hot tears Down her pale face quickly flow! “ What will ye?” she waUed; “ want ye Georgie? Come ye me an’ my poor lad between ?” “ He must,” says the sergeant, “ go with u s ! He belongs to hi^ country, his Queen!” “ Standoff! he is mine! come not near h im! He has breathed in these arms his last breath; No Queen nor no army can claim him. He belongs to his mother, and Death!” An’ my heart a’most stopped in its heatin’ As I looked on the widow’^white cheek. While the soldiers with bent heads stepped backward, An’ the sergeant in vain tried to speak! The light in his young eyes had darkened, tTi'h voice with Death’s silence was dumb; Never more, Dan, shall poor Georgie answer Friend, mother, or trumpet, or drum! Once more she cried out, “ Get ye gone, men! Your comrade no longer does heed Your words, or your threats, or your lashes: My poor lad from tliis oath Death has freed!” An’ she fell on her knees by his beside, An’ kissed the dead face o’er an’ o’er— Thou needn’t be ’shamed o’ thy tears, Dan ; Let ’em come, if they ne’er come afore! It was eaid as young Georgie had ’scaped ’em. So he h a s ! the Queen’s order is naught. No laws nor court-martials can touch him; The Lord his discharge, Dan, has bought. “ IT WIGHT HITE BEEN.” I was horribly lonesome. What conld I do with myself ? I t is only about Christmas time that the responsibility of my individuality hangs heavily upon me : my business engrosses me for the most part, for I had been more successful in money matters than in any other interest in life. But now the holidays were here. Everything in my neat chambers were orderly and comfortable, and I had a real satisfaction in the feeling that they belonged to me. But how lonesome they were. A fellow just passed my window with a covered casket on one arm, and on the other a happy looking weman chattering gaily as she walked. Well, I might have had a wife, if it had not been for Charley’s perfidy—yes, and Emma’s too, for I suppose she was as much to blame as he was. I wonder if either of thera were to blame? Love goes where it is sent, they say, and I really suppose they could not help loving each other. Poor Emma! Proud, splendid woman; I should like to know what her fate has been. I t seems strange that I have never heard one word from them since that Christmas eve on which they eloped. She was to have married me before another Christmas, but Charley was younger and handsomer th a n j, and there were such brilliant indications of genius about him. Strange that they have not been realized; and surely they have not, or I should have heard. O, if I could only see them again. I had forgiven them both before the expiration of the first year, in my anxiety about th em ; for how could I forget the charge of my dying mother? “ Take him, Paul,” she said, “ be good, and tender, and true to him all the days of your life. No matter with what ingratitude he may repay your kindness—forgive him not only seven times but seventy times seven. Be to him more than a brot-her, my trusted child; fill my vacant place for him. Say to yourself— it will be true—there is no crime on earth that would cause my mother to cast one of her children out. The more abandoned, the more wretched they become, the feore my affection shall comfort and solace them; until.at last, with a patience that never wearies, and a zeal that never flags, and a love whose strong wings bear all burdens upward, I will land them within the portals of that eternal home where sin and sorrow can come no more forever.” And now four years had slipped down the thread of time, each adding to my anxiety, until I felt that I would give all my accumulated wealth for the sight of their dear faces once more. I will get away from these torturing thoughts, I said; I will go out and seek some adventure, praying my good spirit to lead me where I can make a Christmas for somebody though I may not have one for myself. I put on my wraps and started. The streets were thronged; how brilliantly the lights shone and what an array of Christmas cheer they illumined, .^ d then to see the toys—O, if I had only a child to make happy with a gift. \ ^ y , here is a whole bevy .of ragged little urchins, shivering around a pastry cook’s window. Now, gbod .spirits, whose duty it is to inspire us to generosity, I shall commit no act df disinterested benevolence to nigh t; blit will make these youngsters happy if you will grant me some reasonable recompense. So I called them in, and bought as they directed. They were so engrossed and so joyful that they forgot to thank me, and departed with arms full of good things for their different homes. Bnt when they were gone the old lonely feeling returned to me, and I thought uncomfortably of my bachelor Christmas again. I passed the next day somehow. I gave a good deal to friendless littlQ ones on the street—God’s children— still holding firmly by my compact with my spirit friends, and asking frankly for reimbursement. Why not ? Have not we the promise that if we cast our bread upon the waters, after many days it will return to us? On Christmas morning as I passed out of my door, I found a child sitting quietly on the steps eating a bunch of raisins. He looked h e ^ y and comfortably though poorly' clad, that at first I thought he must belong to some of the neighbors. But no. I had looked at all of these longingly and so tenderly, I knew them as well as if they had been my own. I thought I ’d speak to him. “ How do yon do, young man?” “ Dood momy,” he said, slowly, in a rich baby contralto. I did not know what to say next. No matter—he did. He took a wet raisin from out his rosy mouth and handed it to me. “ Aint 00 hungry, poor man ?” he said. I declined his hospitality, but his lips quivered, and tears came into his eyes. “ O, yes,” I said quickly, seeing what ailed him, *‘I would like to have some raisins;” and stooped down beside him. His face instantly clearedand he commenced feeding me—alternately putting one grape in my mouth and one in his. I thought I was doing him a favor; he knew he was doing me a favor, and as the grapes disappeared began to look uneasy. “ Ain’t oo dot enough ?” he said. “ O no, not half enough yet.” “ Es oo dot enoQgh now ? dey’ll make 00 sick,” and he actually put all the rest, a good-sized handful—into his own mouth. Well, it was not fair, but I reserved my opinion of his conduct, and asked him his name. “ Dotty,” he said. “ Where is your mother?” “ Don’t know.” “ Where is your father?” “ Don’t know.” “ Where do you live ?” “ Me’s doin to live with oo !” “ Withme ?” “ Es—my mammy told me so.” “ Your mammy told you so? Where is your mammy ?” “ Her don’d off.” “ What is your mammy’s name ?” He looked me over from head to foot, mentally gauging the extent of my idiocy, and then answ^ed, scornfully : “ Mammy named mammy ; don’t oo know dat?” “ And she said you were to live with me ?” “ E s ; she said if me would, oo’d div me lots of pretty sings.” I felt like the man who drew the elephant by lottery. “ I t’s most deuced cool,” I said. “ Es, it awfuy tool,” said the young man, rising ; “ et’s do in the house. In tbe house, and divested of his wraps, he was as much at home as if he had always lived there. The first thing he did was to harness a chair at the head of the lounge with an old pair of suspenders, and then get on himself and commenced driving, “ talking horse ” most uproariously. “ Get ape, now, won’t oo ? Get ape. Whoa, Danuary ! Do long dere, won’t soo? Dam oo fool.” He was evidently aU r ig h t; bnt what sort of a fix was I in ? Well, to condense the matter, I gave him in charge of the* landlady, and went out to see if 1 could find his mother. I t was of no use. I advertised him in every possible way. Nobody claimed him, and I concluded he had dropped out of the clouds for my especial benefit. Perhaps the biread I had thrown upon the waters had been metamorphosed into meat, and in this shape had returned to me sooner than I expected. I weuld be careful how I made another compact with my spirit friends. But even yet it seems that they had not fully recompensed me for my kindness to the children of the past Christmas. I was sitting one evening with Dotty by the fire, some six weeks after Ids advent, when there was a shuffling in the hall, and soon a tiny rap at the door. I opened it, and a little girl came m timidly with her finger in her mouth. At first the light dazzled her, but she soon peered around the table and espied Dotty. He, too, had seen her, and with a little scream he rushed towards her, and then commenced the most extravagant demonstrations of joy I ever witnessed in my life. Of course, I was curious to know what it all m e ^ t, but they did not answer my questions. They did not seem to hear them. I t was “ Oh, Dotty,” and “ Oh, LUly,” kiss—kiss—kiss, and “ Tum up to de fire, Lily, et me shake de snow off oor cloak ; and “ Where did oo dit dat petty horsey. Dotty ?” and then more exclamations and more kissing. I was utterly bewildered, and after cudgeling my brain to an extent undreamed of in ^ my previous years, I gave it up as hopeless for that night at least, and concluded to sleep on it as Econ as they got done kissing. In the succeeding days I found ont, partly by auestioning and partly by guessing, lat these children were twins. Who they were, or what the object in palm- i ing them off upon me, remained a profound mystery for years. I will jnst say, in passing, that though a little resentful at first at what seemed an unpardonable liberty in thns forcing a great responsibility upon me, I soon became not only reconciled, bnt infinitely happier than I ever expected to be. My darlings grew in grace and 'beauty, and became the very life of my Ijfe. But from the moment of their entering my house I was haunted by a woman, who in spite of all my efforts baffled every attempt to see her plainly. One snnuner eve, as I sat in my little sitting room with the children at dinner, I became conscious of some strange influence near me, and glancing ^ u n d I saw her through the open window, just melting out of sight in the dim darkness. And many a time after 1 caught partial glimpses of a thin, wasted form, bnt never once was I in a poeitim to catch or detain her. At last, m o v ^ by compassion for what I knew to be in that poor mother’s heart, I posted an advertisement on all conspicuous places near my dwelling, which was something like th i s : “ I f the mother of Dotty and Lily will come to me openly she shall see her children without reserve. But in case she shall have reasons of her own for not coming, I would like to let her know that he to whom she gave them thanks her with a humble and happy heart for her precious gift, and pledge himself never to prove recreant to so sacred a trust.” Now, 30 far from this producing the effect I had desired, it ^ m e d to banish the mother entirely away, and it was nearly twelve years after the children came to me that the next event happened. There was an exhibition in Lily’s school, and she was to have the leading character in some theatrical performance. She was pleased and excited quite beyond her natural self. She stu ped her part with avi^ty, and with the most thrilling and b r ^ a n t action rehearsed it again and again before me. When the night came, she a p p e a ^ on the stage in character, ^quisiteW dressed in court train and jewels, i t was the first time I had ever seen her out of short dresses. Who was it she reminded me of ? Suf ety I had k n o ^ some one at some time of life just like my splendid darling. I listened to her and watched her, with what pride who can tell ? until the last act, when curtain tails upon her in tableau—with hands crossed upon her breast, with tender eyes upraised, the whole wealth of her pale golden hair falling in one curling, misty cataract down to her waist, the innocence of a n g ^ radiating from her, and veiling her girlish fom with a gentle grace, so wonderfully pure, so tenderly touching. Through the hi^;my teaM that filled my eyes I saw a halo encircle her like a rainbow, and then the curtain fell and I heard a scream from some woman in the audience. The scream pierced my heart like a knife, for lifted ont of myself as I was by the intensity of my feelings, there came a perfect revelation of all the inexplicable events of the past few years—so full of quiet content for me, so full of agony to others. In vain, for some moments, I struggled to penetrate the crowd whence issued the terrible cry. At last I reached her, pale, prostrate, lifeless. “ Stand back,” I cried, “ she’s mine! O, Emma, Emma.” ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ * * There is little more to teU. I took her to her ®ld heme—to the very chambers she had brightened with her encewhen a child. She was faded, and old, and worn beyond her years. Her splendid fragrant ludr, whose touch upon my cheek and shouldOT^had once tuned my pulse to the delicious maddening rhythm of love, was now “ half gray, half ruined gold.” ^ e knew her children, and t£ey brought hCT aU the long garnered affecuon of their foesh young hearts. But even that could not save her. She faded from^ us daily, and at last, with many promises of i ^ union in that world where we hope to rectitythe mistakes of this, we p a r t ^ Charley had died before the twins were bom, and poverty had ptmuM her relentlessly—bitterly. O, “ only come back to the heart that cherished her. How this thought to ^ tured me, how it wore upon me and darkened my life for years. And those lines of Whittier’s ring their endless refrain through my tortured brain: “ Of all sad words of tongue or pen. The saddest are these—it might hare been. I t was years before the remainder of the poem took root in my heart, but at last 1 could say: “ O, wen for us all some sweet hope lies Deeply hidden from human eyes; And in the hereafter angels may ^ Roll the stone from its grave away. An Indian Delicacy. A writer on Indian life says: “ In the sand deserts vast swarms of grasshoppers are hatehed, and while yet their wings are undeveloped and they caonot fly they are caught in n e a t quantiti^, swept up by the bushel and roasted in pits like the ant, or on trays with hot embers like seeds. They are then ground ftud th6 flour is boiled, as mush, or made into cakes, and grasshopper cake is considered a great delicacy. Later in the season clouds of grasshoppers leaving the warm plains below attempt to cross the mountains. When they come near the summits they are chilled by the cold air, and tumble down, and falling on the deep sloping g. » ' t _ iT— the sides of ti 8 I1
