It's nothing but mother, mothor, from morning 'till night. I declare, I am tlrotljof tho name 1\ And tho mother iossfed htrtfwing into her work basket impatiently, and turn- od with no amiable face, to'hor child. . \Oh mothor,\ said Mary, in a pleading tone, \won't you please to let mo tako your littlo scissors tocutsomo dresses for my doll. I'll bring them back again,\ \No I shall do no such thing;' you aro alwuys bothering mo for somothing whon I get a moment to sew; you will want «omo- thing clso beforo I can tako a stitch. Run right away now, and don't tcaso mo.\ The child turned away with a disappoint­ ed faco, and the mother bent over hor nee­ dle. Prcsontly a shrill cry camo lrom an ad­ joining room announcing that tho baby had finished his nap, nnd was by ho moans pleas­ ed with his quarters. Down .wont the sow­ ing again, with the exclamation, .\that babo must needs wake up witfi only half a nap, and thcro'll be no peace, with him all tho afternoon.\ The hasty manner in •which Charley was snatched up from his cradle, and the impa­ tient \hush will you,\ that groctcd' , him, was in no way calculated to quiet his nerves, and culled forth still louder streams. After a wcarisomo hour ofalternuto scolding, tho young gentleman concluded to sit upon tho floor and amuse himself with bis plkythingS, whilo his mother made preparations for supper. f • ! •> When the work was about half completed, the door was thrown opcin, • and two red cheeked children rushed noisily into tho room. . - \O mother!\ shouted tlje eldest, \wo aro going to have a pio-nic—ill ^ho scholars— down by tho grove, and tnkjs our dinners, and have some big swings,,and—and—\ The boy stopped,f»»irly tjut'of breach, and his younger brother chimed in— \And tho teacher is going to (tlcosmo^nd Willie with him in his bfg market wagon, and ho snys you must bnkd us a cako, won't you mothor, and put raisins in it, and sugar on tho top?\ \Dear mo.'\ exclaimed Mrs, Hall, '.'I do bfliovo there novcr was such a noisy «ot€5if drftldren.

Fd~t^a fow minutes thor« -was a €«ynpara- tive !/ojulet, and tho two boys rolfasl their marbles and discussed their merits; but th^ir Tflicei grow louder and louder, and finnWjr Willio made a quick stop forward, and brought his foot downjjn:jtho babyS fingers. Tienithete w&s3 mn 'slc Iiu earn est, and- M tho mothor caught up Charley and tried to still his screams, scolded poor Willio for his carelessness, pushed both the boys intochairs, and took her Work basket away frorrt'#$ry, giving hor n hastjrblow that addod hor voice to. Jjhp. chords, t]icr<) camo a ftuick,.*t8,p iiy the hall; and /tho luuband came in. He 1 was ono of thoso genial, happily con­ stituted men who always sea>-the sunny side of everything,-' nnd on whom L tifo and its cares press lightly, As ho ontcrcd tho room tho loud angry screaks ofj.ho.,chjldren sunk,Jtlm,ost instant­ ly to^hnif-^nbxlucd sobs, and\ their faces brightened in sympathy with-his. Catching the baby from his mother 's arms, hccotnmenccd a merry play- with him \thKt soon \brouglvt sniilcslnstcad of tears to the littlo fellow 's fuco, and Mary dried her eyes to joinriin his shouts of delight at boing toss­ ed to'tho coiling by tho strong arms that he trusted so perfectly.^ In a few moments Mr. Hall %M seated- wlth-Charloy In-bis lap, arid tho other children about him, each ono ea­ ger to rolato something of the day's occur­ rences, sure of finding ready sympathy from their father. Tho pic-nic was discussed with all its'.anticipatad-delightii,.''.and even Mary 's new doll enmo in for a sharo of the attention, as her story of \dreadful headache dolly has got,\ was gravely listened to. When aljl 'werc In good liqraor again, Mr. Ilnll quietly asked them what they were all crying about when he came In. All looked sober for a moment, and then Willie hesita­ tingly\ answered: \I stepped on Ohnrloy 's Angers and that mado'him cry, and then mother shook mo and I/cried too.\' \Did you mean to hurt your littlo broth­ er?\ \No father, jbut Fred and I wore rolling our marbles, and I wanted to got a good aim, and I forgot all about baby and wont backward right on to him.\ \Y<m must romeaibor another timo to bo more careful whon Charley is near you. I knew a .boy once who put his littlo brother's eye out, by hitting him accidentally with a play-thing. You would feel very badly if you should spoil ono of these bright oyes would you not ?\ \Yos indeed, father,\ said Willio, throw­ ing his little arms about Charley, \Willie wouldn't hurt you for all the world, little brother.\ \Well Mary, did you cry bccntiso the rest did ?\ \I— J—gof. my mamma 's littlo scissors.\ \I am sorry if my littlo Mary has been naughty and disobeyed her mothor.\ \Sho didn't say Mary musn't touch,\ sobbed tho child, \sho says, not troublo mamma.\ Tho tears wcro not easily checked this timo, and with all tho Cither 's ingenuity, thoy burst forth nt overy 8lig ..t provocation during tho evening. Whin tho lost littlo head Was loft dreaming upon its pillow, Mrs. Hnll drew hor sewing chair to tho light with a sigh of relief, saying: \Thank fortune for tho prospect of a few hours of peace and qulot.\ \You look very tired to-night; hnvo you had a hard day,\ inquired her husband. \Hard! I should think so. Chnrlic has not slept fifteen minutes to-day, and I never saw Mary so fretful and peevish.\ \I do not think Mary ia well; sho seemed very feverish this evening. Mr. Marsh has two children sick with scarlotfevor.\ \0 the'ro is nothing tho matter with hor,\ replied Mrs. Hall, Jjut in spite of her words her hoart bcut a littlo anxiously at the tho 't. \I sometimes think she likes to bother me. and to-dity it has been nothing but mother I mother! till I am so tired of it I almost wish 1 might never hear tho name a.ga}n.\ , \Ho not say so my dear, it makes' the trcmblo to think of what it might b6. This would bo a sad homo if ovon ono of thoso merr^ vqices should never say mother ft S ftil V\ • . •, Mrs. Hall started: she had not thought of such a thing, and tho sorious construction that her husband had given to her hasty words shocked her. Sho was 'ari aflcctionato mother, and really loved her children, al­ though sho failed tocntcrMnto their childish feelings with' that appreciative sympathy thnt'thoy neodod, and often administered impatient reproof and even correction with­ out stopping to determine whethot it was iuoritcd* It was generally understood by^the. chil­ dren that to \bother mothor\ was the most sorious oflonco they could commit.

( Littlo C^iarley^wis closely* wa[tc1icd to 'see' if tlio f foy'cr lia'd tainted his blood, and for sovoral days they hoped he wo did escape, but ho awdko ono morning with tho crimson staining his puro cheek, and before night tho fever rropt.and glowed In ovory vein. It is vo 'ry pitiful to sco a child suffer, especially an infant that knows nothing ofthe naturo of pain, and 'see looks so pleadingly to thoso in trust for relief, wondering much that tho mothor 's love^ which never failed beforo, should be so pow­ erless now. Thero was a lovo that was strongor yet', that did not fajl, and after many days and nights of pninfui watqhjiig, bopi children wcro pronounced out\^ at danger. On the night that Mary's fovor turned, Mrs. Hall sat by tho b'cdsldo, almost holding hor breath least she should disturb tho docpslccp into which sho had fulloii, and looked on thu pale, wasted faco of her child, sho'thought of all the courso of sickness. .Sho thought too, of her own impatient words but a fow weoks beforo, and remembered that during hor delirium Mary had not onco spokon her name. There was a silent movement in tho bed, and A child's voice cried very faintly, \mam­ ma!\ Was thero over such music to tho mother's cars, over such blessed tears as filled her eyes, as sho murmured, \Thank God! I havo heard the name onco moroj\ '' Tho sights and sounds of the sick room slowly passed away, and tho houso rang again with childish voiepi; but tho mothor had learned a solemn lesson, and the hasty wish that had been so nearly granted was a warning momory whenovorshe was tempted to impationt words or thoughts. RAIL R*OADS IN TIIK UNITKD STATM.— Tho IT. S. Economist says—\\VTl'thin a peri­ od of thirty years wo have invested nearly 1,200 millions of dollars In tracking our country with rail roads,\ and adds—\This is an astounding achievement, especially considering tho fact that capital has boon prcssingly demanded by tho rapid develop­ ment of a now and ferlilo country?' A table in tho Ruilroad Journal slVOws that in 1882 'thero wcro only 131 miles in operation.
