"You've a letter, Bessie! What news, what
Cries stout Tom Manncring. pioneer,
As into hia cabin, with weary thowf,
He strides at even, his children dear
A-frisk at his heals with their lambkin-ways.
When Bessie looks up, "with her wifely
Trom the open letter, which yet her gaz
Seems lingering in her lap the while,
"It is father writes; and he asks a place,
For his age with us in the backwoods here.
Tie has lost his all; and both Maud and Grace
Refuse him aid; and he's ill, I fear."
'Oh, ho!" And Tom, with his eyebrows knit.
His axo in a corner stands, and then,
With the bairns at his knee, and his plp alit,
Begins to give to the news his ken.
" 'Tislittlo we owe your father, Bess,'
lie says at length. "And, because yon
Tonr fate with mine In the wilderness,
He never so much as a godsend winked.
While lands and houses he lavished on
Your sisters when they were richly wed.
What say yon? Now that his fortune's gone.
They've neither a roof to shield his head?"
"No, Tom. They , are Migrates heartless,
Jnst read the letter; It makes me cry
For rage and pity," " Not I ! cries bold
And cheery Tom, with a brightening eye,
As he dnnillestlie little ones, one by one,
"You're a Christian woman, and therefore
To answer tho letter as you'd have done
Had he lavished his favors on you and me."
"Let me kiss you first, Tom. There! I knew
Just what you would say," says the bouny
And 6he straightway up to the table drew,
Where her pen, .with phrases ot kindness
Soon fashioned a letter, whose homely pith
Was, "Haste, my father, oh, haste to mo I
Hero is shelter and rest for your gray head
.y Tom, anil me, and the children threo."
"Now listen, sho says; and her goodrnan
The simple lines from her fall heart writ,
While her brown eyes glistened with happ7
And tho cnrly-patcs at their elliows flit.
What a time we shall have!" Tom, laughing
Nell, Jenny, and Sandy thnt letter see,
Tis a white-dove message that wawsrd flies
To wait a grandfather to children three!"

And, although he knew there was

That was tho beginning of their
friendship ; and when, three months
later, Lila was sufficiently restored to
accept a situation as traveling com
panion to a lady, she knew that her
most valued friend in all the world
was Dr. Dormer.
A perfect afternoon, even for la belle
Pari, and Mrs. Jerningham, leaning
back in her chair beside the window
of her grande salon, thought that life
in the gay city was tho one thing de
sirable, and would be the one glorious
thing, were it not for her son Martin.
For her son, her darling, her chief
pride, for whom nothing iu the world
was too good ; for whom marriageable
maidens and shrewd mothers had an
gled visioly and linvisibly, who never
yet had been disappointed or thwart
ed in all his life, was in a state of des

Jcrningham wonder, in agitation and

niugliam was in love with Mrs. "War
ringdale's charming young friend and
companion our own Lila Barton,
whom, two years before, Mrs. Jcruing
liani had turned out of doors.
"She will not listen to me," Martin
had said to his mother, before he went
out that afternoon. "I tell you I must
have her, too before another twenty
four hours goes over my head, mother.

"You think that?" slie said, trem

"She is gracious and kind, but beyond

And Mrs. JeiHiingham knew, as 6hc
looked upon her son's handsome, hag

so humble herself, she must do it for
"It is awfully cruel of you," 6ho
said pitcously, nnd he interrupted her,
"You can tako your choice Lila
Barton for your daughter, or get
along without me!"
"I mean it. She won't refuse mo if
you ask her. By Jove ! she is the only,
woman in the world I shall ever ask.
Sho shall accept mc!"
"I think there is no danger of her
refusing such ail offer," she said, a lit
tle of tlie old scornfulncss in her voice.
"Of course you will go," he answer
ed, decidedly. "When I come back at
seven to dinner, I shall hear what you
have to say from her."
Then he had gone, and Mrs. Jcr
ningham had sat in trouble and dis
may, thinking it all out, wondering
how she could accomplish her errand,
and yet not sacrifice her pride how
she could conciliate Lila Barton, nnd
yet give her to understand it was an
honor she had come to offer her.
Sho ordered her carriage, and, dress
ed in a most elaborate toilet, was
driven to Mrs. Warringdalc's, where,
surrounded by all the luxuries of
wealth and refinement, Lila Bartou
had ay on her way to heart, and made
not only the confidential friend, but
the beloved daughter aud choice com
panion. As Mrs. AVarningdale's friend, socie
ty had opened it most exclusive doors,
aud our little Lila had found herself
almost unconsciously, a pet and favor
ite iu pleasant social circles where
her personal attractiveness, her sweet
wiiisoniencss, her refined intelligence,
held the position given her.
And Martin Jerningham had renew
ed his acquaintance with-his mother's
discharged governess, and
Tii is was the result Mrs. Jerniug

sharp struggle within her between
pride and love for her son that idol

a vision of elegance, and loveliness, and

Aud Mrs. Jerningham rushed at
once into her errand.
"X j doubt you will be quite surpris

And so Lila's turn came, and like a
young duchcs3, she bowed to the wo
man who had, all unconsciously, been

back to her son.
But as, a year afterwards, Mrs. Dor

aloud to aunt Tabitha the notice of

self-evident he did not commit the

CAN WOMEN DRIVE I
An Old LIverjnian's Experience of the
"Isn't it rather singular that women
never learn how to drive a horse prop
erly V" remarks some irate man as he
inspects a tired animal, and finds the
bridle over its ears, and the bits half
way down its throat.
"But women can drive," cries a cham
pion of the sex. "Don't they drive sev
en or eight miles to market with veg
etables or loads of hay ? Don't they
take their babies out to rido whenever
they can get hold of a horse? Why,
there never was a weman who could
not drive, and some of them cau han
dle a horse much better than their hus
"Can women drive, and do you let
them handle your best horses?" were
the questions put to a good-natured
livery keeper by an interested party.
"Drive?'' answered the letter-out of
equines, "I should think they could;
but as to letting them our best horses,
that is another matter. We have hors
es in our stables few men can drive.
We keep what we call safe horses for
ladies' use the kind that will go any
where if you just guide them, old fam
ily nags, sensible enough to trot along
and mind their own business, and not
fret if they are pulled two ways at
"Do you object to letting herses out
for women to drive?"
"No, indeed; we have from twelve to
fifteen ladies tt week come to uj for
horses, aud Ave giye them good ones,
too; but somehow women tret horses
when they drive them, so we don't care
to give theiu high-spirited animals.
Now look at that sorrel," pointing to
one from whom the harness had just
been removed. "I let that horse this
morning to a bit of a woman with
wrists no bigger than my two lingers.
I didn't want to let it go, because it's
such an ugly puller. 1 told her it had
a mouth like iron, but she said she'
wanted te take an old aunt, that was
visiting hei, out to see the town, and
she drove off quietly enough. But half
an hour after I saw her coming down
Woodward avenue Iiko a streak of
lightning, everybody running to get
out of the way, and the old aunt hang
ing on for dear life. She just had the
lines wound around those little wrists,
and braced her feet on the dash board,
and when she came to a corner whisk
ed round it on one wheel. The rig camo
in all right, but that horse won't get
its breath for a week."
"Do they often meet with accidents
and have a smash-up?"
"No. It is curious, but a woman will
take a team through a dozen hair
breadth escapes and bring it back all
right. Wo have any amount of trouble
with men, who tako our best rigs, get
on a spree, and break things all to pie
ces. A woman is either more cautious,
or she will call upon every man in
sight to help her out of the scrape,
Thy are more apt to lose their heads
in a crowd or collision, but there is
most always some special providence at
hand to help them. If you notice, the
most disastrous runaways happen
when some man has the reins."
Further talk developed the fact that
women were not considerate in their
management of horses. They forget to
blanket them in winter aud to tie them
in the shade in summer. They some
times use the reins as hitching straps,
and have a settled dislike to learning
proper names fei harness. Not one in
a hundred could tell the difference be
tween the surcingle and the martin
gale, or had the least idea to which end
of the animal the crupper belonged,
and if compelled to divest ahorse of
its trappings would undo every buckle
in the service, and take the collar off
over the animal's head, to all of which
the intelligent beast would submit, as
if charmed, by being steadily talked to
during the process in the bewitching
tones of a woman s voice.
All of this may be a libel on the sex,
but it is certainly true that when an
old family horse, with a ten-minute
gait, comes see-sawing down the street
with a comically reckless air of run
ning away, a woman's head look3 out
from under the buggy top, a woman's
hand guides the steed in its eccentric
orbit, and a woman's voice shouts, in
distinct tones, "Wh-o-o-a-a," at the
same moment that the reins are jerked
and the whip.applied, while pedestri
