kept tfonifortably warm in the .severest
ooldfve itlier, thfMj mice were born.
1 living had occasion to open the
draper one morning, to my aMonish
liiriiSl 1 saw Some paper scraps in one
ctriier move, as if something within
wi le triing to gcL out, a crolon-water
hu;f, perhaps. The paper was such a
h:if !(. n thrown on tin; lloor of the
composing room, ami was cut up into
er small piece-. 1 lifted soino of it
Ioiue-l.gale. antl there in the corner,
inia very co.y and warm little nest,
ucic nine lit tit; mice not more than a
l.iy old. They were blind, not yet hav
ing opened their eyes, antl they had not
eu one little hair on them. IVrfeclly
Wee, Miiall, helpless little mice; so
.oung they could noty:t stand, but
they all ruddled together in their nest
to Keep each other warm, while the
good little mother was out toiling for
Mime food to give them.
Knowing that occasion would necessi
tate the opening of the drawer many
times, antl consequently disturb the
piiet and rest of so young and helpless
a lainily, 1 decided "lo remove them to
a place where they would be safe from
disturbance. I pYocured a cigar-bov,
fided il wiih scraps of paper similar to
those in which the young mice were
housed, nailed the cover on tightly, cut
a hole in the side, and taking the little
mice one at a tune, carefully deposited
them in the Ui, which I then placed
diretth under the. drawer in which they
were born, and awaited developments.
In a few moments the mother came
to the drawer, and. lindhighcr children
all gone, with a sad heartshe instituted
.a search. She scampered hither and
thither, seemingly very much downcast,
as she supposed her family were all
kidnaped. However, it took her only
a short time to find out thejr new
house. She did not seem one bit pleased
with the change; for no sooner hail she
di-covered them than she returned Jo
the diawer. shook up the old nest, car
ried sonic fresh scraps from the tloor
to it, and then returned to the. cigar
1hi. During this time, nearly all the
men ceased working and watched the
eagerness with which the mother mou-o
worked. In less than ten minutes every
4ne of the young mice were taken from
the bov and carried back to the drawer,
where they were placed in their old
nest, which was newly made up. In
theerv same way in which the cat
takes hold of her kittens did the proud
mother mouse take hold of hers by
the back of the neck.
So much emiosity existed among the
workmen that, in order to satisfy them
selves in regard to the instinct, or rath
er intelligence, displayed by the mother
mouse, each one went to the drawer to
see lor himself, that, seeing, ho might
believe. Of course the old "mouse must
haie become enraged at such intrusion
into her privacy, for she there and then
resolved to provide some other place
tor a home for her children, where they
would not be disturbed and where they
might grow up in peace and quietness.
Down into the cellar she went with all
peod and did not again appear for at
least half an hour, when she did re
turn it must have beeu with a joyful
heart, having chosen a site to which

they would be away from any disturb
One after another she took by the
back of the neck, jumped from the
drawer and ran along the wall to an
opening in the tloor, through which she
disappeared. It took her but a few
m'nutes to safely deposit each oue, when
she would return for another, until all
were gone and nothing left but the old
nest in the drawer.
After th-it the parent mice regularly
came from the cellar to the comoosing
room, and gathered the crumbs for

A wild Ilose opened her pink leaves
one after another, one June morning,
and smiled in wonder at seeing what a
beautiful world she was in. She grew
in a hedge-corner, on a low b'lsh which
had never bloomed before.

A little bright-haired child came and
laughed in her face, and then touched
her leaves gently with his toft finger.

flower walk iu my life. How funny it
would be! Vou are just to keep still
and look pretty.'
A Hluobird flew into the tree, and
sang a song so full of chirps and trills
and twitters that the Kosc held her

" Why can't I llv?" she said to the
I'ird. "Here I have to stay, while vou
can go and see all the beautiful

"The beautiful things come to you,"
said the Bluebird. "The birds sing to
you, and the children laugh because you
are sweet to them. The Sun smiles all

She f felted ami sulked, never dream

Ono day last week a hill car was com

laborers had taken up an old rail and
were laying down a new t.el one.
Half a hundred were at work with
pick, shovel and iron bars, and the
car had to stop until a rail w;h laid,
and the passengers were impatient- It
as about noon, and the laborers were
ditl not work as earnestly as they did
earlier in the day. It was the usual
crowd of pascugcrs. old and young,
rich and toor. Among them were a
couple of smart young fellows who do
not have to work, and who-e life is

handkerchief tied over her head, and a

milluuiiiui, said the other.
The old lady hitched ncrvou-dy on
the seat and looked disgusted at the
voting fellows, and it was evident she
"had a friend among the laborers, to
whom she was bringing the dinner.
She looked out of the window so sweet
ly as her old man, with a crowbar in
liii hand, looked up at her. The tired
look all went out of his face when he
saw the .-mile of "iniidder." and it was
evident they had journeyed up and
down the Iril of life together for more
year-: than the dudes had lived.
Observe the old coon with the crow

all alone, to tow away under his

with you and your friend of the crow

strikes like- a rising knell. It is the
twelve o'clock whistle, and see them
drop the tools ami make for the shade
on the sidewalk, as though they were
afraid of working a .second too long."
Hy this time the old lady was pretty

and sa d: "I guess you never vork

The tiling fellows felt ashamed, and
blushed, and all the passengers looked
glatl because, the old lady had shut
them up. They made one mistake,
however. They laughed at the old
l.idy iu an impudent sort of way. She
had talked pleasantly, as though she
felt hurt before, but now, after they
laughed at her. she looked spunky. She
got up to go out of the car. and open

she talkett German to him, and his
eyes followed the car, antl his hands
clenched, and he looked as though he
would like to mop the floor with the
smart boys, and it was the opinion of
tho passengers that if the car had not
got away just as it did he would have
done so. antl the dudes looked as
t'lough thev were in luck that their talk
