Tills is the naniu of a new metal which ha  music of Tappan's "lucre is an dour of p-aceful rest" occurred to my memory, and thus I played and sang till Nellie's father came. He was a handsome man, iu full vigor of mant iiood, and from liiu'i his litde daughter inherited her golden timed hair and hizel eyes. He took a seat near his wile, and drew her ihin hand into his as he spoke to her; Then, when I praised the ne-v piano, he turned to me laughr V'es, and the best part ol it is, is only cost :ne ten dollars." I expressed my astor.ishiueut, and my look ot wonder drew another laugh from him. Let me tell yon the he said, draw- ing little Nellie towards him, and cucircttug 'ior little form with his arm, while she looked with as much astonishment as myself, and lie began: A lew years ago I went to Chicago. had lieen there but a few days in my moin- iiig walks, 1 encountered a girl some years old, a very intelligent, bright eyed child, whose face wore tjHcli a sorrowful expression, i.bat I almost slopped to speak widi her as _she .jassod. The morning air was raw and chilly, the ground wet from a light of early snow, and I noticed that as tl.e wiuti blew her garments about her form, she thivered with the cold. As she went by, she halt turned, and I had gone but a little way before I heard quick footsteps behind me, and stopping, the girl lifc- i d her band as if to place it on my arm; but drawing back, she said Please, sir, if you could give me a little money to buy bread 'Are you I asked. and her lipsquir- sred. u Hnesn't vour father work, and bring is she said, 'and mother sprained lier arm, and my who used to help us, wrs drowned not long ago.' Something in my iieart, ami in lier lace, told iue that her story was true. I took her into a linker's shop, told her to hold out her tattered apron, and tilled it with loaves. TlieJi putting live dollars in the shopman's liulid, I stipulated that the poor family was lo have bread every morning till the money wo.- Msed up. Then I -lipped another live inio tiie girl's hand, aud luined hastily from lear-lilled eyes. Well, ten dollars were gone, and I was by no means rich enough to spare it; but 1 felt as if, no doubt, tin- Lord would make it up and, ab any rate, ten dollars was che.tp enough for tb rare pleasure of to God's poor children. I went back u> my hotel jus! as the gong sound- ed for breakfast, and took my seat with aliun- ed strangers.
