if I were a bird and you were a bird.
We'd soar ihro' the heavens above ;
We'd speed our course to golden shores.
And dwell in a honia of love.
We'd spend our time
In that peaceful clime;
In dava of the sweet by and. b?.
Away from our sistera and our cousins
And our aunts of the 11. M. S. navy.
The Tarting: Hour.
There's something In the "parting hour"
Will chill the warmest heart
Yet kindreii, comrades, lovers, friends,
Are Lited all to part ;
But this I've seen and many a pang
Has pressed it on my mind
The one who goes is happier far
Than those he leaves behind.
$td matter what the Journey bo,
Adventurous, dangerous, far.
To the wild deep or bleak frontier.
To solitude or war
Still something cheers the heart that dares
In all of human kind.
And I hey who go are happier
Than those they leave behind:
The bridb goes 10 the bridegroom's home
With doabting and tear,
Bnt does not Hope her rainbow spread
Across her clouded feais?
A las I her mother who remains.
What comfort can she find
But this the g-one is happier
Than the one she leaves behind.
Have you a friend a coinrado dear?
An old and valued friend?
Be sure your term of sweet concourse
At length will have an end I
And when you part as part you will
Oh, take It not unkind.
If he who goes is happier
Thau you he leaves behind.
God wills it so and so It Is :
The pilgrims on their way,
Though worn and weak mors cheerful are
Than all the rest who stay.
And when, at last, poor man subdued,
Lies down to death resigned,
May he not still bo happier
Than those he leaves behind?

"That is a most nonsensical tiling; to
say," Jim reuiaikcl, as JJelle held the
motto she was working olF at arm's
length, and gazed reflectively at it.
'U hen there's a will there's a way !' If
it was true, how many good things I
would have !"'
"Perhaps you would," replied his
younger brother Bob, "if the proverb
meant that the way was ready made, and
all you had to do was to saunter down it
up it, I mean."
"If it does not mean that, said Jim,
"it ought to read, 'When there's a will, go
look ior the way, aud it is ten chances to
oue if yo'i tinl it-.'"
1 hat is fitiill : exclaimed Bob; "you
don't fancy the will and the way are like
the Siamese twins, fastened together, so it
you see one you see the other f '
"It means' said Belle, who had now
decided upon the color of the silk she
needed, and who spoke with tliC air of
gravity becoming an elder sister of seven
teen, "that if you have the guu you must
go look for the gauie."
"Suppose there is none'f" asked Jim.
"Is none !" Bob reicaled : "there is al
ways game! There may not he a buf
falo uiKu your front tloor bteps waitim;
for you to come out, but just take your
imu and go to tho West' You'll lind
ii i tit lucre!"
"That is all very nice to sav," and Jim,
who was lyiug ou the lounge, clasped his
hands under Lis head; "but my experi
ence f this family it may be din'eicnt
in others is, ihat we arc always wishing,
but 1 -don't tee that it does auy good; we
don't get much."
"it isu t ictthmg, Belie saut, "it is trtit-
nil I iV . I
mg. mai is a very umereui iiimg.'

only last night about her. She could
have had a very good time, I suppose, if
she had been contented to stay at home,

people were treated in the hospitals and
almshouses, and just think how Bhe trav
eled about it I bhe went to the places
and saw for herself how they were put
into honid cells, that they were chained,
starved and beaten, and she didn't go
home, and say what a shame it was. and

the law's, she went to the .Legislature and
told the men there. 1 think it must have
ben very hard, for first she had to interest
them and prove it all, and then get them
to work to alter the laws. '
"And such men," said Bob scornfully,
"There, now!" said Jim, "there is one
of the things that could bo done! I re
member once that papa was complaining
about some man wi.o was going lo l ou

good man goes the next time. Thee
didn't take any pains to keep this one

Air. Graham is a very nice man.
"Of course he is," said Bob; "but you
dou't think all the men Miss Dix had to
speak to were like him!"
"She didu't care for the men, Bob," re
plied Belle; "all she thought about was
the crazy people, and even if the men she
had to convince were not all like -AIr;Jra-
liam, they had hearts."
"What I would like to do," Jim said,
reflectively, "would bo my own work. I
wouldn't want to make speeches, and per
suade, and all that. I would like to sit
at home and write great books, or paint
wonderful pictures; and I'd send them
one. 1 would 6tay at home and not be
bothered with people."
"You are lazy, Jim; that is what's the
matter with you," and Bob walked to the
other window. "You think that would
be easy, but you would have to work just
as hard, and you would care just at
much what the world would say."
"May lc I would," answered Jim, "but
I wouldn't have to push myself; my pic
ture or my book wouldn't care."
"1 tell you who I thmk was a hero,"
said Belle, Beethoven for he could not
know what his work was like. It you
painted a picture you could see it, and if
you wrote a book you could read it; but
he went on comiosing music, busy all
day; thinking of flutes and violins, aud
singing voices, and he could never hear
one tune. And, then he knew it was
good. There was no use in neglecting
him, he never gave up; he leit it was ins
business to w rite music and lie did it."
"I would have given up," said Jim. "I
don't see why he didn't. There would
have been enoug-h excuse for him.
"Excuse!" cried Belle iu scorn, "as if
he wanted to be excused! He meant to
write, and he wouldn't let anything hin
der him. He made a way."
"What surprises mc," said Jim, "is that
Bob hasn't said a word aliout Benjamin
Franklin yet. I never before heard him
speak of heroes for five minutes without
saying something of him."
"1 thought of him," said Bob, "and I
remembered one of the best things that
lie ever did. You know he talked and
talked about paving the Philadelphia
ftreets, nnd nobody saw any use in it,
even when the mud was so thick that the
wagons stuck fast, and people couldn't
get over without getting kuee-decp. Then
don't 3ou know how he stopped talking,
anil paved in front ol his own house, and
then the people began to cross there, and
so after awhile somebody else paved an
other piece, and they began to see that it
would be a good thing to pave the whole

"The trouble is," said Belle-, 'We don't
make up our minds to what we want.
We just go along and take w hatever we
get, and we don't decide that we want
something else, and mean to get it. we
just wish for it."
"Now, see here," said Jim, "do you
think the Leewellyns are any smarter
than we are? that Jlr. Lcewellyn is a
wiser man than papal"

"Because it is the fashion in the lami-

would find the way to be somebodies?"
"Good or bad i asked Jim.
"Good! I dou't mean that we would
be rascals; but that we would be honora

would miss us, and be sorry to loao us.
Don t you believe we could do ltl '
"Would it be much trouble?" inquired
"Yes, it would. Plenty of trouble and
hard work," replied Bob, stoutly; "that
would bo 'the way.' But we are Ixiuud to
have trouble, I suppose every body says so,
and so we might as well make up our
minds to it; but we also might as well
get some good out of it."
"Now isn t he wise: said Jim, "wise
beyond his years!" .
"I don't care," said Belle, "about being
anything wonderful, or having a famous
name; but I do think it would be worth
while to have some kind of an object."
"Haven't we!"' asked Jim. "I know I
have pletity of objects."
"Yes, but what do they amount to?"
Belle replied. "I don't think it necessary
to do great things; but suppose suppose
I was to make up my mind that the Carey
girls were to have all the sewing they need
this winter, I could do it."
"I think it would be a very unnecessary
thing to.do," said Jim. "I am sure they
ought to do that for theufselves. They
are ever so much older than you are."
"That makes no difference," said Bc'.Ie;
'they need the work, and they can sew
better than most women I know mamina
thinks so. But they can not go and aik
for it, as I could. Last week JIadgc Carey
told mc that Mre. Harold had scut to New
York for a dressmaker, and of course 6he
could say nothings but I cottld have beg

she would like her."
"Madge ought to ask for herself," per
"But if she don't I can. There is no
l harm in it, and mamma says that when
they ae ooee knows there will- b? a
trouble in their getting work. You must
remember they never expected all tliii
poverty and trouble, and if they do not
know how to manage thev can not bo

"Is there anything you would like mo
"Yes, there is," said Bob. "You ought
to help papa to catalogue his 1-ooks. He
said he would have to hire some one, and
I know you. could help him."
"It is a great deed I want, Kobort,"
said Jim; "I burn for glory! I want to
start at once upon a brilliant career."
Bob looked at his brother. "I think,"
said lie, slowly, "that I w ill make a good
French scholar of myself."
''What special good will that do you?"
"I don't know," said Bob, "but I have
a good chance just iid, I ini sure that
