Heap high the golden corn :
No richer gift tho autumn pouted
From out her lavish horn.
Let other land, czultin?. glean
The apple fruin the pino;
Tho :rinso from its glassy sreen.
Tho cl inter from the vine.
Wo better lov the hirdy sift
Our ragged vales bestow.
To cheer us when ths flora shall drift
Our harvest fields with snow.

! robber ciows away.
All through tho long bright days of Juno
its leaves srew bright and fair.
And waved in hot midsummer noon.
Its soft and snowy hair.
And now with autumn's moonlit eyes.
Its harvest tiino is come:
Wo pluck away its frosty leves.
And bear its treasures home,
Then richer than the fabled gifts
Apollo phowcrcd of old.
Fair bands the broken grains shall sift.
And knead its meal of gold.
Let vapid idcrs roll in silk,
Around tho costly board;
Give us the bowl or samp and milk,
By homespun beauty poured.
Then shame on all tho pruod and vain,
Whoso folly laughs to scorn
Tho blessing of our hardy grain:
Our wealth of golden corn.
Let earth withhold her goodly root:
Let mildew blight the ryo;
Give to tho warm tho orchard fruit.
And wheat fields to the fly.
But let the good old crop adorn
Tho hills our fathers trod :
Still let us for his golden corn
Send up our thaukh to fiod.
It was a little after midnight that
a knock camo to tho door of our cab
in. I heard it first for I used to
sleep in a little snug basket near the
fire ; but I didn't speak, for I was
frightened. It was still repeated
louder, and then cauleacry: "Con
Cregan! Con! I say! Open the
door! I want you!"
I knew the voice well. It was
Peter McCabc'i. But I pretended
to be fast asleep, and snored loudly.
(Aidant my. father unbolted the .door,
and I heard him say :
"Oh! Mr. Peter! what's the mat
ter? Is the ould man worse ?"
"Faix! that's what he is for he's
dead !" replied Peter,
"Glorvbe his bed! When did it
"About an hour ago," said Peter,
in a voice that even I, from my cor
ner, could perceive was greatly agi
tated. "He died like an ould heath
en, Con ! and never made a will !"
"That's bad!" said my father for
he was always a polite man, and
said whatever was pleasing to the
"It is bad !" siid Peter ; "hut it
would be worse if he couldn't help
it. Listen to me, Corney ! I waut
yo to help me in this business ; and
here are Gve guineas in gold if ye do
what I bid ye. You know that ye
were alwaj's reckoned 'the very image
of my father ; and before he took ill
ye were mistaken for each other every j
day of the weok."
"Arrah !" said my father for he
was getting frightened at the notion
without well knowing why.
"Well, what I want is for ye to
come over into the house and get in
to tbe bed."
"Not beside the corpse?" said my
"By no means ; but by yourself.
And you're to pretend to be my fa
ther, and that ye want to make yer
will before ye die ; and then I'll send
for the neighbors and Billy Scanlan,
the schoolmaster, and ye'll tell him
whattowrite4 leaving all the farm
and everything to me yc understand!
And as the neighbors will see ye, and
hear yer voice, it will never bo believ
ed bnt it was himself that did it."
"The room must be very dark,'
says my father.
"To be sure it will ! But have no
fear. Nobody will dare to come nigh
the bed ; and ye'll only have to make
a cross with yer peu under the
"And the priest?" said my father.
"My father quarreled with him
last week about the Easter dues, and
Father Tom said he'd cot give him
the rites and that's lucky now.
Come alons, now, quick! for we've
no time to lose. It must ba all fin
ished before the day breaks."
"AH right!" was the reply.
My father did net lose much time
at his toilet for he just wrapped his
big coat around him, and,
on the brocues, left the house

were gone some minutes. Then, in a

I think I see the whole scene this
instant before my eye?, as 1 tat on a
little window, with on? pane, and that
a broken one, and :urvcyed the whole
proceed inn. It was a larcc room, at
one end of which was a bed and beside
it was a table with physic bottler, and
spoons, and teacup?. A little further
offwae another table, at which sat
Billy Scanlan, with all u:anner of
writing materials before him.
The country people sat two and
sometimes three deep round th?
walls, all iutently eager and anxious
for the comtns .event. Peter himself
went from place to place, trying to
smother his grief, and occasionally
helping the company to whisky, which
was supplied with more than accust
All my consciousness of the deceit
and trickery could not deprive the
scene of a certain solemnity. The
misty distance of the half-lighted
room; the highly-wrought expres
sion of the country people's faces
never more intensely excited than at
some moment of this kind; the low,
deep-drawn breathings, unbroken fave
by a sigh or sob the tribute of affec
tionate sorrow to some lost friend,
whoes memory was Itliu? forcibly
brought back; these were all so real
that, as I looked, a thrilling eeuso of
awe stole over me, aud I actually
shook with fear.
A low, faint cough from tho dark
corner whero tie bed stood seemed to
cause even a deeper stillness; and
then, in a silence where tho buzzing of
a tly would havo been heard, my fath
er said :
"Where's Billy Scanlan !" I want
him to make my will."
"Ho's here, father!" said Peter,
taking Billy by the hand, and leading
him to the bedside.
"Write what I bid ye, Billy,' ami
be quick for I haven't a long time
afore me here. I dio n good Catho
lic, though- Father O'Raflerty won't
give me the rites 1"
A general chorus muttered, "Oh!
musha ! tnusha 1" was heard through
the room ; but whether in grief over
the sad fate of the dying man, or the
unflinching severity of the prieet,ia
hard to say.
'I die iu peace with all my neigh
bors and all mankind."
Another chorus of the company
seemed to approve these charitable
"I bequeath unto my son Peter,
and never was there a better son or
a decentcr boy 1 Havo you that

me that my mouth is dry. Let me
tasto what ye have in the jug."
Here the dying man took a very hear
ty pull, and seemed considerably re
freshed by it.
"Where was I, Billy Scanlan?"
say3 he. "Oh, I remember at the

I mean the two potato gardens at
Noonan's well ; and it is the elegant
fine crops that grow there 1"
"Ain't you getting wake, father,
darlin ?" saj's Peter, who began to be
afraid of my father's loquacioasnosa
for to say the truth, the punch got
into his head, and he wa greatly
disposed to talk.
"I am, Peter, my son," says he
"I am getting wake. Ah, Peter!
Peter! you watered the drink !"
"No, indeed, father! Bnt it's
the taste is Iavin' you!" sass Peter;
and ogain a low chorus of compassion
ate pity murmured throagS tht wide
"Well, I'm nearly done, bow,"
says my father. 'There'a only one

I put it on you, Peter, as yo wish to

same easy heart as I do now thafye

"Yes sir! Ye, father, we're all

the sick man was assuming, hum

When tbey were all gone, Peter
slipped back to my father, who wtu
putting on hi broguns in a corner.
"Con." saya he, "ye did it all well.
But sure that wad a joke about the
two acres at the cro3?"
"Of course it was, Peter," says he.
"Sure it was all a joke, for the matter
of that! Won't I make tho neigh
bors laugh hearty, to-morrow; -when-1-tell
them all about it?"
"What!" exclaimed Peter, in
amazement. " Tell 'em all about
"Faith! and why shouldn't I?" re
turned my father, duly.
"You wouldn't bo mean enough to

gave a low, wicked laujrh that made
me shako with fear.
"Very well, Con," says Peter, hold
ing out his band, "a bargain's a bar

Father only chuckled a little at thL,
but said nothing. And t$o it ended,
and my father slipped quietly over the

legacy he left himself. Aud thus we
