It was by die labor of her hands that she obtained shelter and food for herself and her three Little ones. Remember the occurrence As if it had taken were out of Money and food. At breakfast time on last morsel was eaten and we went through the Long Day without a taste of bread. We All grew very hungry by night but our Mother encouraged us to be Little while Lon Ger until she finished tile garment site was making when she would take that and some other work Home to a lady who to d pay for the work then she said we should have a Nice at last the work was finished and i went with my Mother to help carry it Home for she was weak and sickly and even a Light bundle fatigued her. The lady for whom she bad made the Gar ment was in Good circumstances and had no want in supplied that Money could sup ply. When we came into her presence Eba took the work and after glancing at it car it will do very Mother lingered perceiving which the lady said rather you want your Money t How much does this work come of eight replied my Mother lady took out her parse and the change this evening. Call any time and Yon shall have it and without giving my Mother time earnestly to urge her request turned from us and left the room. I shall never forget the night that followed.

I do not mean that men cannot and do not appreciate female brilliancy but if Are a Good listener and in the receptive mood Yon can spend an hour pleasantly without it but a woman finds out in the first three rantes that the fringe on your dress a not a match. In four she has discovered that the fringe on your sleeves is frayed at the Edge. In five that the binding of the Heel of your Boot is worn out. By the sixth she bos satisfactorily ascertained what. She suspected the first moment she set eyes non Yon that Yon trimmed your Bonnet yourself.

Your boots Are Only be ginning to be shabby and All know the i kept thinking Over what the girl said until other suggestions came into my mind i wish i had sent and got raid As the idea that Polly might really be in want of the Money intruded itself. It would have been very Little this was the beginning of n new train f reflections which did not make me very Appy. To avoid a Little trouble i had sent the poor old woman away after a hard Day s work without her Money. That she stood in need of it was very evident from the fact that she had asked for it. How thoughtless in said i As i dwelt longer Oitte subject. What s the inquired my Hus band seeing me took serious. Nothing to be very much troubled i replied. Yet you ave i am and cannot help Yon wih perhaps smile at me but Small causes of ten produce much pain. Old Polly has been at work All Day scrubbing and clean ing. When night came she asked for her wages and i instead of taking the trouble to get the Money for her sent word that i any change. I did t reflect that a Ornan who has to go out to daily work must need her Money As soon As earned. To very my husband did and Independent. Known her wants turn Home she sat weeping with her Clil. Dren attn my her when a neighbor came in and learning on situation supplied our present need. This relation did not make me feel any metre comfortable. Anxiously i waited on Juhe next morning the arrival of Polly. As soon As she came i sent for her and hand ing her the Money she had Earnd the pre , i m sorry i had t the change for Yon last night Polly. I Hope you did t want it very Polly hesitated a Little and then replied Well new am i did want it my Daugh the this invoked the Nec shy of traversing the Woofe length of ode of the nil too. With much Sybor and anxiety As we had to proceed More warily than Ever at each step we at last accomplished it and now we held consultation or it were better to risk the attempt of carrying off oar prize by Der Fol to Tea spot where we bad concealed the Waggon or destroy it at at once by lowering bag after bag into a jeep that h. Informed me was beneath us As we leaned Over the Balcony of the Piazza. We concluded Tea latter was the Best and accordingly my companion uncoiled the rope he Stilt carried around his neck and fastened one end to the Balcony rapidly descended me to haul up the other end attach ing it to he or food As time and lower them to him when be won cd drop them into the Well we had nearly finished this part of oar task when rendered reckless by the Appa rent Security with which it was continued splashing of each bag into the Well exciting no suspicion on the part of oar dangerous neighbors at tha other extremity of the dwelling h.

To on great satisfaction we found it not Only unfastened but wide open and one after the other we passed into the Interior again paused in motionless silence and again we listened intently but nothing beyond the sounds already mentioned met on ears and we proceeded to search in the darkness for the bags of ammunition.
