POETRY. Our Saints. *Tis not alone from legend and old story. ’Tis not alone from canvas, dark with time, That holy saints, crowned with celestial glory, Smile down upon us from their height sublime. Not only from church-windows, colored brightly, Do tlieir blessed shadows fall across our wav Ah, not alone in niches gleaming whitely, With folded hands, do they stand night and day. WIio is there in this world who has not, hidden Deep in his heart a picture, clear or faint, Veiled, sacred to the outer world lorbidden, O’er which he tends and murmurs low. “My Saint!” A face, perhaps, all written o’er with sorrow. Whose faded eyes are dim with unshed tears; And yet they hopefully look toward the morrow. And far beyond it into brighter spheres. A face whence all the sunshine of the morning And brightness ot the noon have passed away; And yet, where clearly, surely, there is dawniug The wondrous radiance of that perfect day. That perfect day—when, crowned with heaven’s brightness, Without a pain, or care, or mortal need, With conqueror’s palm, in robe of snowy whiteness, Our blessed shall stand as very saints indeed. Yes, God be thanked! though the pure saints of story And holy martyrs that the artist palms. Are veiled in radiance ana crowned with glory, There still are halos for these unknown saints. —Christian Union. Tom Foster’s Wife. BY EDNA D. PKOCTOB. I had just returned from two years’ stay in Europe, and was sauntering down Tremont street, in the golden September morning, when I saw my old friend, Tom Foster, get out of a horse car a few steps in advance ol me. I knew him in a moment, though we hardly met since were at Exeter academy to gether ten years- before—room-mates and blithe companions until we parted—I to go to Harvard and he to enter his father's store, the well known house of Foster & Co* Pearl street. He was a merry, hearty, practical lellow, clear skinned and robust as an Eng lishman, and self-reliant and robust as New Hampshire birth and Boston training could make him. 1 always liked him, hut he plunged into business and so, without mean ing it, we had almost lost sight of each oth er. He was an only child, and his parents spent their summers at their homestead in Greenland, near Portsmouth, and their win ters in Boston. As I said, I knew him in a moment. He had grown tall and stout, but the boy was still in his face, and, with a flash ot early feeling I sprang forward and caught him by tlin arm “Tom! How are you?'1 He looked puzzled for a moment, and then, burstiug into a laugh, he seized my hand in bis strong grasp, and exclaimed: “Why, John Ralston! Is that you? Where did you come from ? I’m glad to see you my boy. Why, I haven't set eyes on you since we made that trip to Nahaut in your fresh man year. The truth is father was so poorly for a long time then that I had everything to see to, and felt as if the world was on my shoulders. I did hear, though, about you college honors and your going to Germany; and I’ve often thought of you lately and wished to|see you. Why, Jack, in spite of my weight and your beard and broad shoul ders, I can’t realize that ten years have gone since we were at Exeter together. We must talk over old times and new. When did your get back and what are your plans?” “I came yesterday, and shall stay in the city, on account of a business matter, until next Tuesday. Then I am going home.” “Well, now, this is Saturday, and you can do nothing after three o’clock. Come and spend Sunday with me in the country. I want to show you my wife.” “Your wife. Are you married, Tom ?” “Married nearly a year,” said he, with a smile. “You don’t look very solemn over it.” ♦Solemn ? It’s the jolliest thing I ever did in my life. Meet me at the Eastern depot at four o’clock, and I’ll tell you about it on the way down.” We parted at the Winter street corner—he to go to his store, and I to the Parker house. “How handsome Boston has grown,” said I, glancing at the fine buildings and the Com mon, beautiful in the September sun. “We think it a nice town,” he replied, speaking with the moderate words and the perfect assurance of the Bostonian to whom his city is the sum of all excellence and de light. “Remember, four o’clock.” And he disappeared in the crowd. “Tom married 1” I said to myself, as I walked alone. “I dare say it’s to his father’s pretty ward, Clara Maitland, whom I saw when I spent the day there eleven years ago. I remember what long cui Is she had and how fond she seemed of him. Yes, I dare say it’s to Clara. I hope, though, she hasn’t grown up into one of those delicate young ladies, good for nothing but to display the latest fashions, and waitz a little, and torture the piano. Better some rosy, sturdy German Grelchen than a poor poll like them. It would be a shame for Tom, with his splendid physique and vigorous brain, to be tied for Hie to such a woman.” And then, turning down School street, my thoughts wandered off to a blue-eyed girl who was not satisfied with the small triumphs of the croquet ground, but who would send an arrow straight home to the mark; and climb the hill with me, her step light and free as the deer’s in the gale below; and hold a sleady oar in a boat on the river; and swim ashore, if need be, and then, when walk or row was over, who could sit down to a lunch of cold meat and bread and butter with an appetite keen as a young Indian’s after a day’s hunt; yes, and who knew how to be efficient in the kitchen and the rarest ornament of the par lor. How impatient I was to see her, the bewitching maiden whom a prince might have been proud to marry. And again I said to myself as I went up the Parker house steps: “I do hope Tom hasn’t made a fool of himself!” Four o’clock found me at the station, and a moment later in walked Tom, carrying a bas ket filled with Jersey peaches. “They don’t grow in Greenland,” said he, tucking the pa per down over the fruit. “Come this way.” I followed him, and we had ju3t seated our selves comfortably in the car when the train moved off. “Now for the story, Tom,” said I, as we crossed the bridge and caught the breeze cool frrtm fho COO “Rllt T non minro -1 tbeglrl you married. It wa3 Clara Mait land.” A shadow passed over Tom’s faco. “Clara has been dead four years,” said he. "‘She in herited consumption from her mother. We did everything for her—took her to Minneso ta and Florida, but it was no use. She didn’t live to see her eighteenth birthday.” “Poor Clara! She loved you dearly. Then I suppose you chose some Boston girl of your acquaintance?” ‘ Jack, you couldn’t tell who Mrs. Tom Foster was if you tried from now till morn ing. I shall have to enlighten you,” and, moving the basket to one side, anu settling himself in the seat, he went on: “You know I have the misfortune to be an only child. After I was twenty-one. father and mother began to talk about my marrying, I have plenty of cousins, you know, and we always had young ladies going in and out of the house; but while Clara lived she was compa ny for me, and after she died I was full of business and didn’t trouble myself about matrimony. To tell the truth. I didn’t fancy the girls. Perhaps I was unfortunate in my acquaintance; but they seemed to me all curls and flounces and furbelows, and I would as soon thought of marrying a fashion plate as one of those elaborate creatures. I don’t object to style, I like it. But you can see fine gowns and bonnets any day in the Washington street windows; and my ideal of a woman was one whose dress was her least attraction. “Do you recollect father’s former partner, Adam Lane? He’s a clever old gentleman and millionaire, and father has the greatest liking and respect for him. He has two daughters—one married years ago; and the other, much younger, father fixed upon as a desirable wife for me. I rather think the two families had talked it over together; at any rate Miss Matilda came to Greenland for a long Summer visit. She is an amiable girl, but so petted and spoiled that she’s good for nothing—undeveloped in mind and body. She looked very gay in the evenings, attired in Jordan, Marsh & Co’s latest im portation. But she was always late at break fast, she didn’t dare to ride horseback, she couldn’t take a walk without stopping to rest at every stoDe. and once when I asked her if she had read the battle of Sedan, she look ed up in her childish way, and said: ‘No, Mr. Foster. Newspapers are so tiresome.’ Bless me! what should I have done with such a baby ? “A year ago this summer I was very much confined at the store; and, when August came, instead of spending the whole month at home, I thought I would have a change, and so I went down for a fortnight to the Cliff House** on-Beach. It’s a quiet, pleasant reMVQ and you’ll always find from fifty to one hundred people there during the season. The landlord is a good fellow, and a distant relative of mine. I thought he looked flurried when I went in, and after a few minutes he took me one side and said: ‘“ Tom, you’ve come at an unlucky time, I had a very good cook that I got from Bos ton, at $20 a week; but she’s ahigh tempered woman. Last evening she quarreled with her assistants, this morning the breakfast was all in confusion, and now she is packing her trunk to leave on the next train. In two or three days I can probably get another one down in her place; but what we’re to do in the meanwhile, I don’t know.” “But, Norton,” said I, “isu’t there some one near by or in the house who cau take it?” “I doubt it. I’ve half a dozen girls from the vicinity doing upstaiis work,—one of them from jour town, the best waiter in the dining; room. But 1 suppose all of them would either he afraid of the responsibility or think it beuealh them to turn cook; though they would have pleuty of help, and earn £20 where they now get three.” “Who’s here from Greenland?” I asksd, for I knew somethin'! of almost every one iu the place. “Mary Lyford.” “Mary Lyford? A black-eyed, light-footed girl about 20 years old, with two brothers in Colorado and her father a farmer over toward Stratham?” “Yes, the very same. ’ “Why. she’s the prettiest girl in Greenland, at least I thought so two years ago, when I danced with her at the Thanksgiving party in the village; and I heard last fall that she took the prize at the Manchester fair for the best loaf of bread. But why is she here ?” “Oh, you know fanners haven’t much ready money, and I suppose she wanted to earn something for herself and come to (he beach like the rest of us. You say she took the premium for her bread. .1 believe I’ll go into the dining room and propose to give cook’s place to any one of the girls who would like it and who feels competent to take it. I must do something,” and looking at his watch he went out. Ten minutes later he came hack, clapping his hands and exclaimed: “Mary Lyford says she’ll .try it.” “Hnrrab for Greenland,” cried I. “Isn’t that plucky ? By Jove 1 I hope she’ll suc ceed, aud I believe she will.” “You musn’t expect much to-day,” said Norton. “Things are all topsy turvey iu the kitchen and it will take some time to get them straightened out.” Just then a new arrival claimed bis atten tion, and with a serener face he turned away. Dinner was poor that day; supper was little better. And, in spite of Norton’s cau tion, I began to be afraid that Greenland was going down. But the next marning what a breakfast we had—juicy steaks, hot potatoes, delicious rolls and corn bread, griddle cakes that melted in your mouth, and coffee that had lost none of its aroma in the making. Thenceforth every meal was a triumph. The guests praised the cook and hastened to the table at the first sound of the bell. Norton was radiant with satisfaction, and I was as pleased as if I had been landlord or cook my self. Several times I sent my compliments and congratulations to Mary; but she was so constantly occupied that I never had a glimpse of her till the night before I was to leave. I was dancing iu the pallor and had just led a young lady of the Matilda Land stamp to her mamma, when I saw Mary standing on the piazza. I went out, shaking her cor dially by the hand, told her how interested I had been in her success, and how proud I was to find a Greenland girl so accomplished. She blushed and thanked me and said, in a modest way. that she was very glad we were all suited; aud then Norton came up and expressed his entire gratification with what she had done. As she stood there in a white pique dress, with a scarlet bow at her throat and her dark hair neatly arranged, she looked everv inch a ladv. “Do me the favor, Miss Lyford.” said I, “to dance the next cotillion with me.” “Ah I Mr. Foster,” she replied, looking archly at Mr. Norton, “that isn’t expected of the help.” “The help!” I said, indignantly. “You are the queen of the establishment, and I invile you to dance, and so does Mr. Nor ton.” “Certainly I do,” he answered. “Go and show the company that you are at home in the parlor as well as the kitchen.” So, smil ing and blushing, she too my arm. Didn’t we make a sensation when we went in! Perhaps there was no fellow there with in a better “social position,” (you know the phrase) than I; and I had been quite a fa- ■ vorite with the ladies. You should have seen them when we took our places on the floor! Some laughed, some frowned, some whispered to their neighbors; but I paid not the slightest attention to it at all, and Mary looked so pretty and went through the dance with such grace and dignity that before it was over I believe all regarded her with ad miration. I didn’t wait for comments, but escorted her out as if she had been the belle ol Boston. “Good night, Miss Lyford,” I said, when we reached the hall. “X am going in the morning; but I shall see you again when you get back to Greenland.” “Good night, Mr. Foster,” she replied. “I thank you for your kindness.’’ Then she added laughing: “Have you any orders for breakfast?” “Why, yes. I should like to remember you by a plate of such muffins as we bad yes terday.” “You shall have them sir,” she said as she disappeared in the doorway. And have them I did. Three weeks later Mary came home to Greenland with more than $100 in her purse and a farm that was worth thousands. I went to see her at her father’s house. I found her every way excellent and lovely; and the end was that at Christmas we were married.” “Glorious 1” I exclaimed. “Give me your hand Tom! I was afraid you had been taken in by some Matilda Lane.” “Doyou think I’m a fool?” said he. Then I told him of my own choice, and I was still talking when the train stopped at the Greenland station. We soon arrived at his hospitable home. His wife was all he had pictured her; a re fined, intelligent, handsome woman, who would develop and grow in attractiveness every year of her life. After a merry even ing in their pleasant parlor I went to bed and dreamed that the millenium had come, and that all women were like my blue eyed girl and Mrs. Tom Foster. HOTELS.
