It wis late in the month of November The day had been cold and gusty, wit! occasional dashes of rain, and the even ing, which set in early, promised to fc: one of gloom and tempest. The wine went rushing about with that Iot mournful, hollow sound which is knowr only in autumn time, lashing the nakec boughs of the old forest trees with iti furious surges, whirling the dead leavei which lay heaped in the deep ravine! into miolstroom eddies, and driving eve rything before it with a violence tha made them only too glad to flee. Th< clouds which had hung in scatterec masses while the livid sun set its strug gnng beams among them, gathered them selves into a single mighty one ant shrouded the heavens as with a pall ! threatening every moment to burst inn ; drenching floods. " God pity the homeless to-ni?:ht!' ? exciaimed the young man in an em ph&tic tone, as pushing open the rud< iTi? t1S,l0g Cubin' he dragged in th< old black log that was to warm thi rough hearth-stone, and irradiate th< brown rafters through the long, cheer Ies3 hours of the autumn storm " God pity them and help them, too for a cold and wary time they'll have I trust no one wanders to-night in thi wilderness; though lest there should be 1 II do what I can to give them a beacon light, and even when he spoke, h* planted the huge, knotty stick into a be< of crimson coals, and filled the space be tween it and the old iron fire-holder with a generous armful of light, dn kindling, which soon burst into a bril ; liant blaze, not only scattering light anc . beat across the dim apartment, but shed ding a stream of moon-like rays througl j the tiny windows, that went dancini J like a thing of life through the outei i darkness ill it was lost in tbe mazes 0 the untracked forest. "There," said the warmhearted woods man, as he watched the sky-bound sparki and the continuous glow. " Ive dont my part toward leading them to a home 11 any be abroad and wandering, and I'I! enjoy it, too, myself," and he drew hn seat to the homely board on whicl smoked a hunter's rare steaks from th< wild deer, a stew of birds which he had shot while standing in the door of hit cabin, and cakes of powdered corn, nice ly baked and browned on a clean cornei of a rough hearth. A relishing meal ii was, too, for the hands of a loving anc gentle wife had cooked it all, and honesi and sturdy toil had awakened that keer zest for food which the idler nevei knew. "A supper for a fcng," aaid he, as h< returned to his cozj place before th? faxe. "We 6han't starve yet awhile Moll?not while there are birds in th< trees and game in the woods, and strengtl in these brawny arms. Only keep a warn hope in your heart, little wife, and oui come will yet be a bonny spot." Ant often he folded his hands on his bosm and bent ,big head, and seemed to tx reading bright fancies in the warm fire light. And when her light eveninc chores were done up, his wife drew hei seat close beside him, and as we were a]j wont on such stormy nights, when th< hearth-stcnes beam, the two warmec their young memories and strengthened the pinions of hope. And the evenint sped on awfully and wildly without, bui caim and beautifully within, by the sidt of the blazing fire whose streaming light was the only star that gleamed in thai dim oid forest. 44 We'll keep the fire up all night, and as bright as we can, too,'1 said the brave pioneer, as, ere he leaped into bed, in stead of raking the coals, he threw on 1 fresh bundle of splints; " it's too awfu a night for me to sleep sound, and I mai as well tend it as not.

Pomtirriu who net aa afnrta wlB be of twenty per i with the evening's flame, dropped slowly its crimson flakes, giving out no lootw ? brillftnt flash, but onlj ft stoftdy, ruddy glare. Just then, footsore, wearied and tick, there leaned against the rough door ? poor Indian hunter, ft bnve and right loyal descendant of those red men wbo, ere the pioneer girdled his trees were kings of this wild old wood. Mftny ? long, weary mile had he traveled since the dawn, and when the dftrk night set in so stormy and cold, he hftd drawn his torn blanket around him, and sought only to find in the grave some hollow in which to lie down and chant the deftth hymn that hftd rung ftll day in his ears. A long time he wanderea, entangling himself yet deeper in the intricftte wind ings of the dense old wood. But just when his feet lagged most and his heart was sorest, a beam from the woodman '? fire lit on his path, and lit, too, ft hope in his bosom. He followed the ray, and ere the last brand had fallen, was so near the rude home that his Indian eye could track the path which its owner had made in the forest, and follow it to his door. But there he paused awhile. Would the white man be kind to his red faced brother, and give him the food he craved and a skin by the fire ? 44 Me try him," said he, as ha pushed against the door; ?? me try him, be good to me, me no forget," and the wooden bar rattled and the woodsman awoke, startled but not afraid. One bound brought him to the door, and with one hand on its guard and one on his rifle, he called, " Who's there?what want you ?" " Me Indian; me sick and me hungry; me but ere he could speak more the door flew open and he was bid to come in and be welcome. 44 Friend nor foe stands outside my door on a night like this," said the sturdy host, as he threw a generous armful of his lightwood and raked out the coalc till they were all in a glow. 44 Me your friend, and me no forget," said the Indian, in a voice emphatic, though weak, as he sank on the hearth* -stone, tore ott his blanket that was drip ping and cold, and suffered the warm rosy light to creep over his great brawnv limbs, and redden the cheek that had uever been pale before. 441 am your friend, for God knows by your looks you need one," responded the brave pioneer; 44 and the be>t that I have ohall be yours to-ni?;ht:" and suiting ihe action to ihe words, he set on tb<* table the remains of the evening meal, and then drawing out a clcar bed of coals, laid over them a generous slice of the uoble deer he had slaughtered himself, and had soon a smoking meal to tempi the hungry palate of the guest. Then casting a bundle of skins on the floor close to the hearth-stone, and taking from off the bed whereon lay his wife, trembling iu silent terror, a heavy blan ket, he told the poor Iudian to rest him self till morning, and lorger if he choose. And then with a heart lighter and hap pier than when he rose, be lay down again, drawing his pale companion to his breast and quieting his fears with en* dearments as gentle and soothing as those a mother bestows on ft frightened child. When they ftwoke iu the morning their Indian guest lay still on the floor, in ft sound ftnd refreshing sleep. When he rose from his rustic coucn they ftsked him not whence he hftd come,land whether he was going, but only to partake of their hospitality *s long, as bethought fit. With Indian taciturnity he said nothing, but ate with them, and then lay down again, and in this way passed two days. On the morning of the tniid, when the hearty breakfast had been disposed of, ho drew his blanket around him and went to the door. As he crossed the threshold he turned his face to the still seated husband and wife and said em phatically, 44 Pale face good to Indian? me no fo'rget;" and as an arrow darts from its bow when the strong arm draws he Fped from the sheltering roof, and was lost almost instantly in the mazes of the dense wood. For some weeks the incident was dwelt on frequently by the family, but gradual ly it faded from their memories, and as years passed away it was only once in ft while recftlled at the request of two buoyant lads, that 4- father would tell them an Injen story, a true story about a live Injen." Then, taking them on his knee, he would relate to them ahat has iust been written, and they would draw his arms yet closer round their trembling forms, and wonder if they would dare to go to sleep while a 44 live Injen" lfty stretched before the fire; and they would say, 44 weren't you afraid father ?" and cuddle up to his heart. Alas! they, nor he, nor thftt still beautiful wife thought then of the sor row that 44 live Injens" were to bring upon their happy hearts. Closer would those little ones have clung to him, and fairer arms than theirs would have been wound about his bosom. But the threat ened blow came soon, and ft sftd ftnd crushing one it was.
