You needn't cry, Roxie. It seems
to you worse than it is. I am hap
py, truly I am. I wouldn't ask to
be happier if it wasn't for the tho't
of him. Aid sometimea I'm at
peace pvm about him. "While
there's oup poor heart like mine to
follow him with prayers, I cau't
think the Loid of all j;race in going
to forget him can you?
Now you nre ciying more than
before. Do not take it so hard,
Roxie. It seems harder to you than
to me, because we are so unlike.
I'm used to making out, you know?
Do you remember when we were
iltle girls how you uced to hate
your patchwork. You hated it so
fiercely I never quite dared tell you
how much 1 liked it for fear of pro
voking you. Iiut I liked putting
the odds and ends together to see
what they would make. Once you
came into our hotite when mother
hail ?et me to making myself an
apron out of her old calico dress.
You said you'd never make an apron
for yourself if you couldn't have
new eloth to make it of. But I did
not wih for new cloth at all. I
really liked the other best because
it was old and soft, and 1 had grown
familiar with it, seeing it on mother.
And don't you remember when
we were apprenticed to Miss C'um
nor, the dress-maker, how it was?
It wan't long before she'd trust you
with the very best goods that came
in, you were so sure and thrilty
with them. You liked to cut out of
whole cloth, and, nobody could do
it better than you. You said you
could see your way then from the
beginning to the end ; and you never
failed in what you undertook. But
6he never gave you the old dresses
that were to be re-made to rip up
and look over, they vexed you so.
She brought them ull to me. I
would rather have them than the
whole- cloth; I was afraid of the
responsibility when I handled it. I
liked to take the old thinir.a and fnnl
ymy way to the good that might be
got out of them by the good that
was left in them. And you and
Miss Ciimuorsaid it was witchcraft
the pretty suits I could get out of
old goods. I liked to do it, Roxie.
It was my genius, you know. And
it isn't so hard for me to make out
now, dear, though you think my life
has been so badly cut up.
You never fairly understood the
difference between us. How could
you? For you always spoke your
mind out plain, and I never could
tell you much in words, I was so
cowardly and so afraid of making
you impatient. 1 wanted to tell you
long ago how it was about Robert
and me, but I couldu'l. I knew all
the time how disgusted you must be
with me, and yet I couldn't speak,
not even that night when you warn
ed me. But now you have come
back and are so kind, and sit there
crying for me, I want to tell you
how it was.
You know I had scarcely ever
spoken to Robert while ho wns
waiting on you, or spoken to you
about him. But I noticed him a
great deal. I had a great sympathy
with you both in your happinoss.
Evenings when we came Irom the
shop and ho joined you, I used to
drop behind and watch you as you
walked along. I was proud of you ;
I thought you were so well-matched,
both so tall and handsomo and full
of life. Robert talked the most, but
it was you who led him, and settled
plane and opinions between you.
And when the cloud came that I
didn't understand at first, and I saw
your face getting more stern and
moody every day, I was as much
pained and troubled, Roxie, as if I
had been your mother. I was most
sorry for you at first, but little by
little, as I gathered the truth I be
came even more sorry for him. You
said you would not marry an un
steady man, even if he were Robert.
I knew it pained you to push him
on, but you were right and firm to
do it, and you went your way strong
Land safe afterward. .Hut lie! be
had not only lost you, but he was in
danger of losing all. I could not
help. being most sorry for him. I
never questioned but that you were
right, but I could not get over the
pity of it. It seemed Btich an un
speakable pity that one so bright
and handsome and hopeful should
be let go into bad ways. My heart
ached to think of it.
For all the sorrowful feeling I
carried in my heart for him, I never
thought it would fall to me to do
anything for bim. You know he
hoped you would relent, and he used
to haunt our way with that haggard
face be wore in the first days after
you parted from him. You would
never turn your head to give him
one look. You were right, and yet
it used to turn me faint almost with
pity and regret to see you pa6s him
tjo Que night you took to going
home through the by-streets so that
you need not see him again, and you
would not let me go with you.
That night Robert came up and
spoke to me. He said he felt I would
be sorry for him. His talk was all
about you, Roxie. He seemed to
find comfort in praising you. He
thought there was never such a
strong, beautiful woman iti the
world as you, never another that he
could so love and leau upon. At
first I felt so strange with him I
could only listen to him and answer
him a little, enough to show I cared.
But when he began to say that you
had taken the wrong way with him,
that you had takeu away the spring
of his energy in trying to overcome
his fault, that he had nothing now to
try for uothiug to look forward to
then I found tongue to talk to
him. "Why don't you wiu her
hack?" I said. "You can do it. It's
only to be manly and upright as you
were meant to be. If you would not
drink again, Robert, and would keep
away from bad companions, she
would see the change in you so soon !
She's very clear-sighted, and in her
heart I'm sure she loves you. Why
won't you try to win her back?"
I spoke so fast and earnestly, he
looked at me in surprise. But I did
not care, 1 was so sorry for him ; I
went on talking; I said more than I
could repeat. All that was in my
heart about him came out, and I
could not say it without tears. From
looking inrpriseil he began to be
moved and sobered. He said ho did
not know any human being cared as
much for his salvation as I seemed
to. He said I put new courage iuto
him. and that he meant to try again.
When I thought it all over at home
that night I wondered that I should
have said so much to him. But it
made me happy to have done it, and
happy to think ho would now win
you back and that the pain and hard
ness between you would be ended,
aud things would be as I thought
God meant them to be.
You know that from that time
Robert fell into the habit of joining
me every night. He did take a real
earnest start toward a better life. 1
could feel sure of it, aud presently
I wanted to see it. I asked you oue
night to go home our way. You
refused; aud then I told you plaiuly
I wanted you to see Robert that I
thought he had changed. You
looked sharply at me then, and I
remember what you 6aid :
"He will never change except as
the weathercock does. He's weak ;
it's ingrained." And you said that
for yourself you'd not be such a fool
as to see him again.
Presumptuous to judge him so?
Xo, dear Roxie ; that was your light
and you saw it clearly. You were
uot wrong because I was led by a
different way. But I could not help
seeing that you were losing your
tenderness for him, and I was so
troubled about it that I begged
Robert to write to you or try to
He said ho would wait a little
longer; he did not believe you could
trust him yet.
Every day I grew more uneasy,
and urged it again. And at last he
said plaiuly that he had given it up
about you that he knew you
could never trust him nor have pa
tience with him. I could not deny it
anymore. When I thought of your
face as you last spoke of him I knew
it was true. And even while I was
sorrowfully thinking about it he
began to say other things. He said
there wa3 no one in the world from
whom he could hope for love, and
trust, and patience, unless it was
from me. He asked me if I did not
know it. And when I looked into
my own heart and thought it all
over, I did know it. I could no
more deny it than I could the other.
You thought mo weak and foolish
to accept his love, Roxie. You did
not know how full of awe and fear
my heart was. The more glad I was
that I could love him, the less blind
I was to all the dangers that hung
over us both. I was not so rash as
to think that my weak hand alone
could avert them. There was only
this, Roxie; it was the only human
hand that was nerved to try. I
knew in my heart that I did right.
I knew you had ceased to feel pain
in regard to Robert. I knew it wa6
not jealousy that led you to give me
that warning when you heard we
were engaged. I would live to be
a drunkard's wife, you said. I knew
it might be true, but it did not shake
me then ; and since it has come true,
Roxie, if all were to be done over
again I think I could not act differ
ently. I only want you to feel that
my marrying him was not as you
thought then just a blind surrender
to what I knew was foolish and
1 was better than you? Oh, no;
my way was open when yours was
barred ; that was all. You needed
to marry a strong, perfect man like
Adam Mayhew. You could work
freely with him. But if I had mar
ried such au one, so great and self
sustained, I should uot have lived
freely. There's a strange cowardice
in me, Roxie. I never dared use my
life much except when I felt a very
great need for it. Robert needed it.
You may kuow I waa not needless
by this. I told Robert I would not
dare enter iuto married life without
claims ou a strength greater than
ours for help. I asked him if he
had uot such a faith iu tho graciouc
help of the Lord Jesus Christ as he
was willing to confess before men.
He was true and earnest when he
assented to that if ever a mail was.
We waited to be married till we
were admitted to membership in the
church. Roxie, you kuow when the
halt and maimed were called into
the feast they came just halt and
maimed. Some of them might have
stumbled aud fallen before ever they
could be led to their places at the
table. They wero to be made whole
rfomo time, but the were not bro't
in whole. The Lord of tho feast
knew when each one's turn would
come and how he would do it. But
he could uot get to each nuo all at
once. He had to bear with them as
they were at first. My poor Robert
was maimed. He was born weak
where some are strong. The Lord
Tho first time that he fell after out
marriage I was as wretched as you
could have foretold. But I had been
sick and ho was out of wort. I
hastened to get better, and then he
got better also. The next year we
got on much better than I hoped til!
that last night.
Poor Robert! If only he had not
gone away! If I could only once
haye talked it over with him and
comforted him !
He did not strike me so hard ; it
was not the blow that made me fall.
I was weak, and staggered. I had
the baby in my arms, and could not
break my falling. It would not have
hurt me if it had uot been tor the
rocker of the chair. I fell upon it.
It was that which hurt my back.
I know how it was with him ; it
sobered him to see me fall ; and in
one minute he was full of remorse.
When they told him I was coming
to my senses and calling for him he
fled away out of the houpe. It was
shame and despair in his heart. He
felt as if he had bocn a curse to me.
They said he had deserted me be
cause I was now helpless. That is
false, Roxie. Do not believe it.
You do not? That U like you, so
generous and just ! Let me tell you.
I have had money sent me from some
unknown person. Miss Cumnor
does not encourage me to think it
comes from Robert. She thinks it
is sent by some charitable person.
She hopes he may never come back,
and does not want me to think of
him. But I know he sent the money.
You think so, too? O, Roxie
then he is doing well somewhere,
and thinking of me! If I might
only see him. You think I could
ouly be a helpless, discouraging
burden to him, now that I may never
walk again. And it is hard to think
if he should come back he would
still find me lying here. I wouldn't
mind it at all if it were not for bis
sake. And yet if he would only
come back I know I could be some
thing to him still. He would find I
could be happy lying here and
Roxie oh Roxie 1 I never had
before never before such love,
and courage, and faith iu my heart
for him as I have now !
You say you think he will come
back. I know he will some time;
but it seems hard to waiL When I
think of his sorrow and all his
temptations, and think I might talk
to him and comfort him, it seomw
hard to wait. It is a wbolo year,
Roxie! Think, it you had beon sep
arated from your busbaud a whole
year, while yoJ had been in sorrow !
You think he will come back
Roxie, you know something about
him! He has been to South Amer
ica ou one of your husband's ves
sels. He has been doing well. It
was he who sent me the money.
Oh, Roxie, tell him I want to see
bim. Tell him I must see bim !
Could I bear to see him now?
Then he is here! Call him quick,
Roxie! That is hi step I near!
Oh, Robert! Robert! JI. E. Ben

A praying church is the bulwark
of the pulpit. A laboring church i9
the right hand of the pulpit. A
dead church ha been the death of
many a pulpit. Mr. Spurgeon says :
"Have you ever read 'The Ancient
Mariner?' I dare say you thought
it one of the strangest imaginations
ever put together dead men
pulling the rope, dead men steering.
But do you know I have lived to see
that time? have Been it done. I
have gone in churches, and have
seen a dead man in the pulpit, a dead
man as deacon, a dead man handling
the plate, and dead men sitting to
hear." lie Arthur.
Col. Kernan. the editor of the Ok
olona, Mississippi, State, laH week
wrote a letter to the Chicago Tri
bune, in which he unbosomed him
self in the following true Southern
chivalaric style. What lu says is
the sentiment of the masses of the
South. His paper U one of the best
paying papers in the South, and is
heartily applauded by the people.
We ask our retidr to ponder well
what he say, and to remember thit
no democratic paper North or South
denies the influence or the position
of the Okolona States. We make
the following extract from his letter.
Your party lias a way of making
merry at our expense because wo
have elevated a Federal soldier to
the 'op of our ticket.

They will indemnify the South for

And leave no means untried to

Among the veterans at the great
soldiers' reunion at Columbus, O.,
last week, were 1,323 who had been
inmate? of rebel prisons during the
war, and suffered the tortures of
those earthly hells. They registered
their preferences for president, and
it was ascertained that 1,322 wer
for Garfield and Arthur and one for
Hancock and English. No doubt
our Democratic friends will see
fraud in this wholesale preference
for the republican nominees by ex
Union soldiers, but there was no
fraud in it; it was not against Han
cock, the soldier, that they cast their
preference, but against tho princi
ple? of the democratic party. Tho
boys that wore the blue are opposed
to the principles that Lee and Jack
son fought for. Lincoln Journal.
