"But, please, sir, buy em pleaded the iittle one, reasured by the rough kindness of his tone. "Nobody seems to care for them, and—and—."

$dut goiitft. SOW I LAY HE DOWN -TO SLEEP. In the -quiet nursery chamber . Snowy pillows yet impressed, See the forms of little children Kneeling white robad for their restj All in quiet nursery chambers, Where the dusky shadows creep, Hear the voice of the children—"Now I lay me down to sleep." In the meadow and the mountain Calmly shine the Winter stars, But across the glistening lowlands —^-Slant-the-moonlight' s-silvertars. In the silence and the darkness, Darkness growing still more deep, I listen to the little children Praying God their souls to keep. "If we die,"—so pray the children. And the mother's head droops low, (One from out her fold is sleeping Deep beneath the Winter's snow,) "Take our souls," and past the casemont Flits a gleam of crystal ' light, Like the trailing of His garments, Walking evermore in white. Little souls that stand expectant Listening at the gate3 of life, Hearing far away the murmer ' ¦ OTfae tumult and the strife. ~ We who fight beneath the bann...

Hush I I think to-night, as I sit by my window.watching, the stars, that I hear the footsteps of an older sister, long since called form earth to heaven. — ^ Memories, sweet and dear, corns crowding upon me as the echo of her innocent prattle seem3 to'sound in the vaulted sky. The laughter ' of that little one cornesdown t<i me through -, tha years, .and makes me happy, as whepher ' little voice made music around the heartli-srone.
