. The Wife's Treason
1 heard a note in my garden bower.
A note of cooing and kin of lore,
My fair young wife was abroad at that hour
I aaw the cedar branohea mo re, '
Acd two dark shadows, one of a xnan,
Certainly crossed the lawn -tnto
the place' where onr kisses began ;
Then the chamber was still a&d the curtains
At last I'eaid, when the morning came
And she was u sleek.as a tunning dove,
"Snail we go forth, my dainty dame,
From the jonqail-nests and the cedar grove,
And seek the open air of the sea,
Where the blue warts gallop e gainst the shore,
Just as the heart of maji, set free,
Eoundd toward the iteddf 1st things f yore ?"
We went j for she did not spy my irift ;
Che only saw that dewn by the sea
There would be many a change and shift,
Aud many a chance of escape fron me.
But I was 'ware of a certain walk,
Close to the edge of the clifls so tall,
Where legs and lusfi of the crafty chalk
Brak off to tlo deop, that swallows them all.
We walked there on:e, and not In Tain ;
For ever so long it bad not slid, . .
But the rock was loosenod now dj ram, -
And I thought it wonld slide that day. It did.
So the went down with it into the foam;
And the Crooner's 'quest absolving me ,
I turned with crape on lay hat toward home,
And waited awhile till the end should be.
I had not long to wait for him :
He came, with malice shut up in his eyes,
With his tongue so trite and his smile so trim,
Acd gave me comfort, en 1 gaie me sighs.
Bet when I went with him back to the train
Just ai a friend should do, yon know
We talked the sad tale over again ;
And whether I let this damp hand go
A little too sharply, who can tell T
But down with a ghastly groan and a grim,
Under :he grinding wh?e!s he falls J
AikJ lha traia wont over him, Hrub, by limb.
As I drove home that glorious night,
I did not laugh ; for, you soe, my groom
Was sitting behind with his face so white;
And the could tell tales in the housemaids '
. room. . . r
But I give ray leader the lightest toujh
Of a whip that Would hardly bsar control.
And I whistled a few sweet bars not much
Of the merry tune that filled jny soul.
Ah wt'l 1 Th wprfc of my life is done ;
Hut 1 should bb rather glad, d'ye know,
T geiv j from the shining sun,
A a I hide my triumph beneath my Woe.
JEM JIcGOWAN'S WISH.
I wish I were a lord," said Pat
McGowcn, a lazy young fellow, as he
stretched over his grandmother's turf fire
a pair of brawny fists that were as red as
the blaze that warmed them.
"You wish to be lord?" answered Gran
ny McGowan ; "oh, then, a mighty quare
lord you would make ; but who knows but
yo'i might wish in an unlucky minute,
and that it would be granted to youl"
"Faix, then, granny, I just wish I could
have my wish this minute.1'
'You're a fool, Pat, and have no more
sense in youre head than a cracked egg
has a chance of a chicken inside, of it.
Maybe you'd never ceass repenting your
wish if you got it'
' Maybe so, granny, but for all that 1
would like to be a lord. Tell me, gran
ny, when does th8 unlucky minute corns
iliat a body may get their wish ?"
4Vhv, yo i see, Pat, there is one par
ticular little bit cf a minute of time in
every twenty-four hours that, if a mortal
creature has the unlucky chance to wish
on that'. instant, his wish, whether for
good or for bad, for life or death, fortune
or misfortune, sickness or health, for him
self or for others, the wish is granted to
him ; but seldom does it turn out for good
to the wisher, because it shows he is not
satisfied with his lot, and it is contrary to
what God in bis goodness has laid down
for us all to do and suffer for His sake.
But, Pat. you blackguard, I see you are
laughing at your old granny because you
think I am going to preach a sermon to
you, but ycure mistaken. I'll tell you
what happened to an uncle of my own,
Jem McGowan, who got his wish when
he asked for it."
'Got his wish ch, the lucky old fel
low cried Pat. 4'Do, granny, tell me
nil about him. Got his wish ! oh, how I
wish I was a lord !"
"Listen to roe Pat, and don't be get
ting on with any of your foolish nonsense.
My uncle, Jem McGowan, was then
5metbiug like yourself,' Pat a strap
ping able chap, but one that like you too,
would sooner be scorching shirV oref the
fire than cutting 'the trirf to' mafee it and
rather watching the potatoes boiling than
digging them out of th'e ridge. Instead
of working fotf a serf coat, he would be
wishing some one would give it 10 him.
When he got up in the cac'rmng, he wish-
ed for his breakfast f and when he had
swallowed it he wished for his dinner, and
when he had bolted down his dinner, he
began to wish for his supper ;and when
he ate his supper, he wished to be in bed;
and when he was in bed hs wlsned to be "Well, a fine, dashing, jumping, rar

spirits in him, and he saw the bedroom
windows" of Squire Kavanagh closed, and
knew that the squire was lying snug in-

vaiiagh. Theri,- when he saw the squire
driving the horse and the hounds before
him, and he all the while Working in the

he saw him dancing with the beautifuf

fortunate minute in the twenty-tour hours
when his wish Was granted. He was
just after eating "his dinner of fine mealy
potates; fresh-churned butter-milk, and
plenty of salt and salt-butter to relish
them, when he stretcher out his two lega,
threw up his arms, and yawned out, "Oh,
deaf.I wish I was Squire Kavanagh!"
"The uoids were scarce uttered when
he found himself , still yawning, in the

eyes and then with joy, and thought him
self, "By dad, my wish is granted, and
I'll lay in plenty of beefsteak first of all."
He began cutting away, but before he
had finished, he was interrupted by some
people coming in. It was Sir Harry Mc
Manus, Squire Brien, and two or three
other grand gintlemen ; and says they to
him, "Kavanagh," don't you know this is
the day you're to decide your bet for five
hundred Dounds that vou will leao vour

"Is it me ?" says Jem. "Why I never
eafcsd a horse in my life?"
"Boiher !" says one; "you're joking.

Sir Harry. "Either I must shoot you
or see you make the leap ; so take your

pered Jem. who was beginning to wish
he wasn't Squire Kavanagh.. .
"In a minute afterward Jem found
himself but in thelawn, opposite a pond
that appeared to him sixty feet wide at
the least. "Why," said he,. "you might

as well ask rne to jump over the ocean,
or give a hop-step-ind-a-leap from Howth
to Holyhead, as to get any horse to cross
that lake of a pond." .
"Come, Kavanazh." said Sir Harry.
"no nonsense with us. We know you
can do it if you like"; and iow that you're
in for it you mast finish iuV :
"Faix, you'll'finisb: mc,' I'm afeerd,"

yourself aisy on that account. You shall
have the grandest Wake that ever was
seen in the country. We'll bury you
dacently, and we'll all say that the bould-
est horseman now in Ireland is the lite
Squire Kavanagh! If that doesn't satisfy
you, there's ho pleasing you ; so bring
but the horse immediately."
"Oh ! murder, murder !" says Jem to
himself ; "isn't this a putty thing, that I
must be drowned to make a great chair-
acter for a little spalpeen like Squire
Kavanagh ? Oh, then, iTs f that wish I
was Jem M'Gowan egaiu ! Going to be

"I'm a dead man," sas he, looking up
in the face of his grand friends as well
as he could, and kicking at the same time
to get loose from them. "I'm a dead man;
and what's worse, I'm a murdered man
by the two of you."

to rise a little, and be laughed heartily
when they told him he had won 500

his legs.and was beginning to walk about,
when who shou,ld be seen coming into
the demesne but two gentlemen one
la ' w4 a
dressed like an ottioer, witn a box under
his arm, a square mahogany box. the
other with a great big horsewhip. Jem
rubbed his tands with delight, for he
made sure that the gentleman who car
ried the box was going to male Squire
Kavanagh i. e., himself some mighty
"Kavanagh," said Sir Harry, "you
will want some one to stand by you as a
friend 'in this business ; would you wish
rne to be your friend?
"In toln. 1 would," says Jem. I
would like you to act as a friend to me
oh all occasions."
"Oh. lhats illegant, said Sir Harry,
" vfe'Il now have rare sport."
"I m mighty glad to hear it," Jem re
plied, "for I want a little sport after all

"Oh, you're a brave fellow," said Sir

"Didn't I leap the gray horse over the

ana says he. "Might I be after asking
yout there any one of the present com
pany named Squire Kavanagh ?"
Jem did not like the looks of the gfn
tlernan, and Sir Harry McManus step
ped before him, and said "Yes ; he is
here to the fore. What is your business
with him ? I art acting as his friend.
and I have a right to ask the question.
"Then I'll tell ye what it is," said the
gentleman. "He insulted my sister at
the Naas races ytseterday."
"Faix," says Jem, "that's ai lie f Sure
I wasn't neaY Naas races."
"Ihe word was hardly out of month
when he got a ertfek of a' horsewhip aross
the face that cut, he thought, his head in
two. He caught hold' of th gentleman,
and tried to take the whip out of his hand;
but, instead of the strength of Jem Mc
Gowan, he had" only the weakness cf
Squire Kavanagh, and he was in an in
stant collared and, in spite -of all his
kicking and roaring, lathered with the
big whip from the top of his head to tho
sole of his foot. This gentleman got at
last a little tired cf beating him, and
flinging him away from him, said, 'You
and I are now quits about the lie, but
you must give me satisfaction for insult
ing my sister.'
"Satisfaction !" roared but Jem', as he
twisted and turned abcat with the pain of
the beating. "Bedad, I'lf never be sat
isfied till every b6he rn your cgly body is
" 'Very well,' said the gsntleTsan.
My friend. Captain McGrnai, is pre
pared for this' "
"Upon that, Jem f aw the square box
opened that he thought was filled with
some beautiful present for him ; and he
saw four ugly looking pistols lying beside
each other', and in one corner abo it two
do2en of shining bran new bullets. Jem'a
knees knocked together with fright whert
he saw Captain McGinnis and Sir Harry
priming and loading the pistol."
. " 40h ! murder, minder ! this rs worse
than the gray horse,' he said. 'Now I
am quite sure of being killed entirely.'
So he caught hold of Sir Harry by the
coat, and stuttered cut, 'Oh, then what
ia the world are ye agoin to do with
" 'Do ? replied his friend why, you're
going to stand a shot, to be sure.1
" 'The devil a shot I'll stand;' said Jem.
I'll run a'wa'j this minute.'
" 'Then, by my honor and veracity, if
you do,' 'I'll stop you with a bullet . , My
honor is concerned in this business. You
asked me to be your friend, and I'll see
you go through it respectably. You must
either stand your ground like a gentle
man, cr.be shot like a dog.'
"Jem heartily wished he was nolonget
Squire Kavanagh ; and as they dragged
him up in front of the gentleman, - and
placed them abdJt eight yards asunder,
he thought of the quiet, easy life he led
before he had become a grand gentleman.
He never while a laboring boy was duck
ed in a pond, or shot at like a wild dusk.
But now he heard something about mak
ing n a ly ; he taw the gentiemau rise
his pistol on a level with his head ; he
tried to lift his arm, but it stuck as fast
as if it was glued there. He saw the
wide roouih of the wicked genilfinrh'd
pisiol opened at his very eye, and looked
as if it were pasted up to his face. He
could see the leaden bullet that Was soon
to go skelpin' through his brains! He
saw the gentleman's finger on the trig
ger ! His head turned round and round,'
and in an agony he cried out Oh, I
wish I was Jem M'Gowan again !'
" 'Jem, you'll lose half your day'
work,' said Ned Maguire, who was la
boring in the same field with him. 'There
you've been sleeping ever since your
dinner, while Squire Kavar-.gh' that yri
are always talking abeu, waj shot a few
minutes ago in a duel that he fcuhiwith
some strange gentleman irj Lis c.vu
" Oh,' said iem, as soon as he. found
he really wasn't shot, 'I wouldn't for the
wealth of. the world be a gentleman.
Better to labor all day than to sepnd half
an hour in the grandest of company. Fa
ix, I've had enough and to spare of grand
company and being a gentleman since I
went to sleep in the potato field ; acd
Squire Kapf.ntgh, if he only knew,it,
had much more reason, poor mm, to wish
he was Jem McGowan than I had to
wish I was Squire Kavanagh.
"And ever after that, Pat," conduded
the old lady, "Jem McGowan went about
his work like a man, instead of wasting
time in nonsensical wishings."
"Thankee, granny," yawned Pat Mc
Gowan, is he shuffled cfT to bed. After
that long story, I don't think I'll eter
wish to be a lord again.''
