It was Saturday and no mistake; a truth which the almanac declared, as also the day be fore, that happened to be Friday; the little wo man wbe set in her little chamber weeping, likewise endorsed the fact with tears and sighs. 44 Only one year ac^. and I was so happy; now. oh dear!" and sobs checked b?r utterance, fur the alarming apace of a few momenta. ?' Only owe year ago ! I didn't think then I should ever be the miserable being I am now; oh no, no. indeed." she murmured between her tears and sighs, after an indefinite pause. Just taen. the baby in the cradle, on one rocker of which the troubled woman held her foot, opened :ts eyea; and. as if determined no body should outdo it In tho orying business, set up ?nch a loud strain of music, that it could not bo listened to unmoved. So the little mother put down hor apron and took up the young musician, who testified his reluctance to stop the strain until he was a mind to, whioh seemed a long timo coming, and showed the obstinacy at the young pug's dispo sition The mother didn't look at in that lignt, but mingling her tears with the young urchin's, groaned? 44 No wonder yon cry. pretty baby, whose papa don't love it anymore!" when, as if ns tonishod at the information, or. determined not to cry when she did, the baby stopped all of a sudden, and looked as sensible out of its eye-? a* an individual, aged a few weeks, is expoet cd to. 44 Precious little fellow is thinking of what its poor miserable mamma told him, isn't it?" sho observed in admiration of its precocity. The urchin replied by a very awry expression upon his pretty phis, as if to say he had not quite hit the subject of it* thoughts. Then, eridaatly thinking she had finished her crying lit. re-eemmenced it with new vigor; kicking its foot and turning very red in the face; all of which proceeding, its little paront set down te tha great troubie which had lately befallen them. '? Mother will always love her baby, and never leave it for any other baby, nor woman nor man," here the comforter broke down, and the baby, who landed safely on the floor, striking its rosy nose against the rocker, when it cried the louder, and apparently with more reason for so doing than it had previously. In the midst of this new distress, a light, riuiek, prying step entered the chamber, the Joor of which a skinny hand carefully closed. 44 Good gracious ' what ails the baby?" a^ked the visitor, in a harsh, dissonant tone, while casting a nervous glance all over the room. Ho fell down, and I don't know but what he's killed himself, at any rate his little nose ia," answered the young, miserable mother in the most hopeless voice imaginable. '? Poor creeters. poor creeters!" responded the new comer, settling herself on a chair; and her 4 ridicule' on the table, from which she quickly saatehed it. ana opening the lid with a jerk, pulled out a narrow bordered linen handker chief and wiped her eyes several times, during which she kept up a series of sniffles and sighs highly edifying and pleasant to listen to, and wonderfully contagious to the distressed little mother, who cried and sobbed the louder for this proof of sympathy in the thin visitor before her. 41 Such a trying time as baby and I have had ef it ever since you were here the first of the morning " More tears and sobs followed this announce ment immediately. *4 Don't doubt it; I don't doubt it a mite; this is such a deceitful world to live i?; so full of qaicksands?" said the visitor,44 and pitfalls,'' interrupted the young mother. 4* And artful women." 4* And vile husbands." 4> And unhappy wives.' said the visitor, look ing in tho deepest commiseration iu the direc tion of the cradle. ?? Oh dear, oh dear ! that I should have lived to respond to that sen.iiuent; when only a year ago I was the happiest bride iu the world Are you sure it was him you saw ?" cried tho little woman, clasping her hands. 14 Sure?of Coarse I was sure I)o yeu s'poee if I hadn t a been, I could 'a come over here and told you about it in your nervous, weak state' No, I couldn't a done it for a dollar tor more But if you think I could, I'll go right away home and you can pick up another friend somewhere else," answered the indig nant and wounded woman, picking up tier hand kerchief and again applying it to her eyes. " Don't go don't go. my dear Miss Grabatit; for who would console me under my afflictions if yon shoukl cast me off?" 441 s'tnose you could find a better friend " ' No, 1 know it would be impossible. You take such a motherly interest in me " 44 Sisterly, you mean." interrupted Mi* Gra-, batit, who had no fancy to be thought older or a* old as sho was 44 Well, I meant sisterly, but somehow my thoughts aren't sound as usual." 4* 1 don't wonder at it. Mrs Greer; I don't know who could 'a sv-od it as yon have." '? If w.%* only my baby that kept me up." 44 Poor, fatktrj?\? baby"' put in the con siderate Grabatit, looking aakance at its mother to see how she took the worl^ vile as in this sense it was 44Yes. fatherless baby, and husbandless wife," responded Mrs. Greer, In a heart-broken man ner 44 \ou seem so broke down here, I'm a good mind to stay with you, and p'r ap* I cau sort o cheer yon up a bit," said Mrs Grabatit, re moving her shawl from her head and shoulders; for in these neighborly visitations she disdained the ase nt a bonnet altogether. 41 How kind you are ! Well, if I am to be lieve the sad story that poets and novelists ars Rlways telling, that man's heart never knoes true love, I can appreciate the lastingneau of friendship, which they as often write about," said Mrs Greer, making a faint attempt at com poeure, so slight in itself that it immediately toppled over, leaving tears in its stead. w hile Miss Grabatit was folding her shawl in its creates and laying it on tho bed the baby with its chubby fists tried to get near enough to his ejes to wipe em but instead of which, it only reached the little pug nose with the bruise on the end ot it, which it essayed to measure, staring in the meantime at Miss Grabatit, whose green specs, and singular countenance were {he greatest sights he'd seen since he was ushered into existence. 44 If I eon Id only see with my own eyes ha wickedness;" '' Yea eeuldotaiW agin it. Mrs Greer; m don't talk that way." The young wife felt so nervous and excited ?he could hardly keep ber seat; till warned by her visitor she had better bathe her eyes and lie dowr a while, as. in an hour her muoh abused husband would come home to dinner; and ho must by no mean? see how agitated she had been Thus prevailed upon, Mrs. Greer tried to look cnlm. while In her breast thvre glowed the fires of 1 esuvius in miniature. With a glad heart Mr Ureer left his store at the first stroke of the dinner hour, for bis pleas ant home, where dwelt his darling wife, whom he had married just one year ago and the baby, the first one, whoee dumpy form and doughy faoe had inexpressible beauty for the delighted fa ther. who thought never wassuch acherubsoeo. "Here he is' cried Grabatit. peeping through the blinds upon the unlucky Greer, who little thought what a tempest was crowded int# his comfortable two story dwelling. 44 Is he ? ' and the wifo ran joyfully fee the door of the chamber and opeead it, before she remembered he was not the worthy object of her love she believed him to be in the morning, when be left her with a warm kias, and the baby ;i:h as warm caress. Now. as she re L membert-d the story of his faithlessness she ber head upon her bosom and burst - Wfeto tears i- * rM Why, Nellie, what ails von V* be asked in apprehension, as be entered the chamber. ' r-he ain't very weli," mu4 Miss Grabatit, by wej of explanation. 44 What has made you worse, Nellie ? You were quite oomfortable when I left you !" ??I Know it, sobbed Nellie, longing to throw herself in bis arms, and a*k hiin if he wpre really the villain she had been told. Fearing an eel air dement, in which she might not appear to advantage. Miss Grabatit remarked, with much apparent feeling, 44 The baby foil, and hit his dear little nose agaiust the rooker: hi* poor mother has worried her self almost to death since." '? l>id ho hurt himself ?;' cried the alarmed father, palling the cheek of bis son. who was crowing and kicking with all hit might to b6* taken out of the oradle, where his mother placed him when she lay down to recover her composure, previous to the return of hor hus band. ?? Nellie, you musn't excite yourself so about bubby's falling, which. I suppose, will happen so often, you'll got used to it. said Mr. Greer, tenderly, as he drew her on his knee, and rucked her and soothed hor lovingly, as if sho had been on infant. Poor Nellie! what a fierce struggle between love and doubt was going on in her heart. From Nellie's relenting looks, and Ebon's devoted anxious face, Miss Grabatit feared the expla nation was coming, and said? ?' Are many out shopping to-day ?" This question recalled Nellie to her previous feoling of resentment; and rising from her husband's knee, she took her baby in her arms and played with him, while on her pretty face th? commingled expression of love and pain had given placo to a stern, hard look, that filled her fond husband with fears for her san ity. and ho brought her to lie down and try to sleep, promising to take oare of tho baby and of her visitor, who folt no compunction for having caused so muoh misery. Hut Nellie declined, and insisted on taking her place at the table once more, sho thought, for the last time. Miss Urabatit, who had been disappointed in lovo many years before, always believed since that under the fairest masculino face a very black heart was hidden; and owing to this opin ion. she favored Greer with an unspoken vol ume of contempt and doubt, highly odifying to imagine, but more so to hoar, if the privilege had been granted one. 44 Are many out shopping to-day?" she en quired again, and with more emphasis. ?*I really have not noticed. ' he replied, without looking up from his plate. Miss Grabs tit and Nelly exchanged glances while the former shrugged her shoulders and nodded her head, signifijantly, as if to say : "See, tho monster, professing innocence; ipc happen to know better, though." Nellie turned pale. as.she leant her hoadover her oysters, pretonding to eat them, while Miss Grabatit seized a chicken bone as if determined to annihilato somebody with it. Mr. Greer looked at his watch, when, starting to his feet, he exclaimed : 441 must go now, as I have engagement! must keep; Miss Grabatit, tako care of Nellie ; don't let her excite her self. I shall bo homo very early to-night, and hope to see ber looking as bright as she did in the morning. After he had put on his hat, and opened theonter door, Eben came back and re peated the charge with affestionate earnestness. Nellie tbougtit, 4,eanIdoubt this man?" Grabatit assured her she could, and all through the afternoon repeated the sight, with her own eyes, by the aid of her specs ; and bade her not relent, and go with her and catch bim, she thought so true, with the object of his later af fection. Nellie complied, arraying herself for the ex cursion vary hastily, forgetting she had not been out of doors for a long time. Miss Grabatit, like all mischief makers, de lighted in what she was bent on doing, without thinking of any course for the young wife to ursue when ."he had separated her from hor usband. a piece of advice she avowed h?r in tention of acting upon. When the clock struck lour the two women set out; Miss Grabatit ras so interested in the object of their walk that she forgot she had said Nellie "couldn't stand it," but hurried her torwards rapidly. 44 Th*re he is !" whispered (Jrabatit, peering into a shop window, where Greor was discovered trying an elegant velvet cloak uj>on a prettily formed lady, whoso smiling face was turned to wards him *4 Look at the deceitful sinner!" exclaimed Miss Grabatit. sntto voce. '?I do. Oh, dear, tako mo home," answered Nellie, completely overcome, and pale, even to ewov>ning. Miss Orabatit took her into a friend1*'bouse Where she was obliged to wait some time till she was strong enough to return ; when they did. Mr. Greer bad already arrived, and the ser vant saul. wa? up stairs playing with the baby. i41 m a good mind to leave the house now, right away; will you ro up and make an ex cuse to bring me the baby?" I can't leave him wilii his vile father and that artful wo? wo ?woman," said Nelly, crying out loud. 44 Where shall you go ?" queriod Miss Gra ba'it. ??Ovor hi your house for the present. Oh., how hapny I am to have such a friend. What could 1 do without you ?" '? 1?I don't think I can accommodate you ; my tenant's don't like children?so you Bee, my dear unfortunate creature I can't tako you in, though 1 should bo g!ad to!" and here Miss Grabatit tried to look v?ry regretful about it. ?? Nellie looked at her in great surprise, thinking that perhaps, after Ml, her friendship was but an empty sound- Just then tho baby gave a short baby laugh, and at the sound Nellie bounded over the stairs into the cham ber, where sbolound him dressed in the pretti est cap and cloak in the world ; and her hus band's doar face all crowded into the richest and tiniest of white satin bonnets, ami over his shoulder the eiegaat velvet sack he had been, but a little while before, trying on tho pretty lady in the store. In an instant she compre hended the whole?the visit in the morning to havo the rich presents made, and the afternoon to see how they suited him, and to bring them home. Ob, you dear rogue ; how ugly you do look in them ; let me try them on,'' cried Nellie, kift-dng him. 4* You re an angel in any thing." said Ebcn, passionately. "You do love me. don't you7" said Mrs. Greer, in delirht. ?? Love you ! Of course I do 7 Who said I did nt?" 41 Sally Grabatit." The serpent! She shan't come hore again'.
