Only a Word.
A frivolous word, a uhorp rotort,
A pnrlliiK in angry baste.
The sun that rose on a bower of blls").
The loving look: and tho tender kisi,
una rci on a barren waste,
Where pilgrims tread with m eary feet
latlis destined never more to meet. f
A frivolous word, ft sharp retort,
A moment that biotn out years,
Two lives aro wrecked on o-Htormy nhoro,
Wuoro billows of passion sureo nnd roar
To break In a spray of tenrs :
Tears shed to blind the severed pair
Drifting seaward and drowning there.
A frivolous word, a sharp retort,
a nasii from a passing cloud.
Two hearts are scathed to their utmo-it core,
Are ashes aud dust for evermore.
Two faces turn to the crowd.
Masked by prldo with a life-long He,
To hide tho scars of that agony,
A frivolous word, a sharp retort,
An arrow at random snod.
(It has cut In twain tho mystic tlo
That bad bound two souls In harmony,
Hweet lovo lies bleeding or dead.
A poisoned shaft with scarce an aim,
Has douo a mischief sad as shame.
A frivolous word, a sharp retort,
Alas I for tho loves und lives
Bo little a cau so has rent apart ;
Tearing tho fondest heart from heart
iVs a whirlwind rends and i :vcs.
Never to reunite n:;nlti,
I tut llvo and dlo lu secret p.Uu.
A frivolous word, a sharp reloi t,
Alas 1 that It should bo so I
The petulant speech, tho careless tongue,
Jiftvo wrought more evil, and dopo more wrong
Have brought to tho world more woo
Than all tho armies ago lo ago
Records on Imt'ry's blood-stained page.
All the Year Jlountt,
Thopurc, tho blight, tho beautiful,
That stirred our hearts In youth,
Tho lmpulso to a worldly prayer,
Tho dreams of lovo and truth ;
Tho longing after something lost,
The spirit's yearning cry;
Tho striving after beUer hopes
Thet,o things cau novcr dlo.
Tho timid hand stretched forlh lo aid
A brother lu his need.
Tho kindly wotd In grief's dark hour
That proves a friend Indeed;
Tho plea for mercy softly breathod
Whenjustlco threatens nigh;
Tho sorrow of a contrite heart
These things shall never die.
The memory of a clasping Innd,
Tho pressure of a kiss,
And all tho trlllos sweet and frail
That mako up love's llrst blUs;
With a firm unchanging t.iith,
Aud holy trust and high,
Those hands have clasped, thoso lips havoiuel;
These things shall never dlo. "
Tho cruel and tho bitter word
That wounded as It fell,
Tho chilling want of sympathy
Wo feel but never tell;
Tho hard repulse that chills the heart,
Whose hopes are bounding high,
In au unfading record kept
Theso things shall never dlo.
Let nothing pass, for every hand
Must find bomo work to do;
Lose not a chauco to waken love,
Be firm and Just and true.
So shall a light that cannot lado
Ream on thee from on high,
And angel voices say to thee,
These things shall never die.

Ditamlly stand I watchlutr
Tho glow lu the western skies ;
Tho' tho breezes softly woo me,
Yet tho tears are in ray eyes,
Perhaps 'tis tho ml&t that blinds me,
l'or tho sunset secnis tot to fair ;
The scene not liulf so lovely,
Nor to $ olt aud sweet the air,
As when. In tho faraway past,
I have stood in the suustt's ulow,
And watched the crimson glory
Ilreak over tho fields ol snow
Ah, yes, 'tis tho mist of tears,
That makes tho picture less f.tlr
I miss a bright form from my side,
And n glory of golden hair.
And far in tlio west I see,
A fair faco all shrouded In wno;
Ah 1 tho sunset was never thus shadowed,
In tho beautiful Long Ago.
Then my eyes shrink away from tho suullght,
And I close them, to shut in tho tears ;
lint they cannot shut out tho walliugw,
That como tip the ulslo of dead years.
Tho summer winds bring loved voices
On tlielrwlngs; n broken prayer
A sobbing I open my eyelids
A glimmer of golden hair;
And ever thus In tho sunset,
When I stand lu tho fading glow.
It bring mo weary plclmcs
Of that bright aisle, long ago;
How tho brightness waned and faded
That clustered around mo of yoro;
All mo, 'tl? "death In liro" to think
Of tho days that are no more.

A few cvcnliics felnce, n party of
friends met nt n &oc!al gathering nt n
fashlonnblo restaurant. Somo wcro

and most of them woro overcoats. Two
of theso wcro nearly alike, nnd wcro
owned respectively by Charley G
and Cliarloy S , ono of thorn mar
ried, and tho latter singlo a wild, rak
ish sort of fellow, who as fast ns ho was
out of ono scrapo was In another. Ills
pockets were always full of rose-colored
(missives and delicato love tokens. IIU
heart was dcsolato out of tlio sunny
glances of womankind ; yet his ndven

friend Charley G is a sober, married
man, cherishing n bnglit-oyed but je.al

tenderly. Ho had found it difficult to
obtain permission to attend tho supper
It was given at last, with tho under
tainting that ho would como homo
cnrly. Ho didn't, however, but sat
lato; so very into indeed, that ho slept
soundly tho next morning until tho
sun was far advanced toward tho zenith,
He had met with a misfortune, too,
having stumbled on his way homo and
oiled in tho muddy street. His wife,
however, set about repairing tho mis

muddy coat. Whilo engaged In this
occupation, her hand, by tho merest
elmnco In tho world, strayed into ono
of tho sido pockets of tho coat, and on
countering a neatly folded billet-doux
superscribed simply to Charley, read :

There was 11 moment's pause, as If to

then Mr. u was rudely shaken from

and tlio littlo white hands trembled
with passion as tho ofieuding paper was
ield up beforo tho culprit.
"I don't know I who brought it ?"
"Who brought it, sir? I found it in

Mr. G was fully aroused by
this time. Ho protested ho knew noth
itig of tho note ; lto did not know how
tho treacherous littlo thing camo into
his pocket. Ho appealed to his witb's
good sense. Sho would hear of no de
nial, but, instead, mado nnother dive
into tlio coat pocket. Another littlo
missivo rewarded her search. It was
brimful of tho tenderest endearments,
and tinted only two days back, but was
in another handwriting, very beautiful,
and signed 'Jonnle."
"Oh, you Turk 1 Just look.at that I"
and whllo Charley's bewildered oyes
wero perusing tho letter, another visit
was made to tlio rcceptaclo of love
another letter camo out. It was equally
delicate, but full of upbraiding. It
called Charley cruel, false, deceitful;
said that 'Fauny'a' broken heart was to
belaid at his door, and his onco loved
darling would dlo early.
Tlio lips wero white now with rage,
tho blue eyes nil atlaiuo with fire, tho
littlo willowy form drawn up to its full

ing so indignant.
"You rake monster I Why, Brig-

Another divo was mado for tho pock

out, until a dozen strewed tlio floor
all of them from different ladles, all
evincing tho tonderest lovo for Charley.
Uniihlo to eopo with tho storm of in

How Sea Witter Came lo ho
Tho bea is supposed to havo ncquired
Its sallno principlo when tho globo was
in tho act of subsiding from a gaseous
state. Tho density of sea water depends
upon tho quantity of salluo matter it
contains. Tlio proportion is genorally
about threo or four per cent., though it
varies in dliTorent places ; tho ocean
contains moro salt In tho southern than
In llio northern hemisphere, tho Atlan
tio moro than tho Pacific. Tho greatest
proportion of salt In tho Pacillo is in
parallels of 225 N. L,, and IS" S. L.,
near tho equator It Is less, niuMii tho
Polar seas it is least, from tlio melting
of tlio ico. Tlio saltncss varies with tho
seasons In theso regions, and tho fresh
water being lighter is uppermost. Rain
makes tho surfaco of tho sea fresher
than tho interior parts, ami tho influx
of rivers renders tlio ocean less saltnt
their estuaries. Tho Atlantic i3 brack
ish 300 miles from tho mouth of tho
Amazon. Deep seas nro moro salino
than thoso that nro shallow, nnd inland
sens communicating with tho main nro
loss salt, from tho rivers that How into
them; to this, however, tho Mediter

tho great evaporation nnd Influx of salt
currents from tho Black Sea and tho
Atlantic. Tho water in tho Straits of
Gibraltar, nt tho depth of C70 fathoms,
Is four times ns salt ns that nt tho sur

peraturo of illl0 of Fahrenheit, tho point
of congelation of salt water is much
lower, Tho lienlthfulncss of tho sea is
nscrlbed to tho mixing of tho water by
tides nnd currents, which prevents tho
accumulation of putrescent matter.

Slnco tho fall of tho 1'cmberton Mills,

Biieli excitement ns that produced on
Saturday, tho 20th tilt., by tho uuac-
countnblo appcaranco of u female's fea
tures, in n light of glass In tho window
of a houso on Broadway. It appears
that n few days provlotis to tho discov
ery of tho phenomenon an elderly lady
nftern longand weary s!cknej,had died.
Tho day succeeding that on which tho
funeral occurred n lady who was visit
ing ono of tho tenants of thosamo houso
in passing saw a figure in tlio attic win

that of tho deceased lady, nnd with
groat consternation comniunicat6d tho

strango and exciting discovery. Tho
window of tho room in which tho wo
man had died was Immediately under

sitting placo of tho deceased. Somo
supposed that by somo means her face
had becomo Impressed upon tho glass;
but tho fact that It was not in tho room
occupied by her, and In a room that
was usually unoccupied, displa
ces all belief in tills Idea. Du
ring tho day nnd evening tho story
of a ghost on Broadway was widely
circulated throughout tho city, and ear
ly tho next morning, which was tho
Sabbath, peoplo commenced to gather
about tho III fated and haunted houso,
much to the annoynnco of Its inmates
and immcdiato neighbors. Nono pro

tho deceased, hearing of the matter,
visited tho place, anil pronounced tho

only remaining members of llio family

momentarily increased, as also did tho
crowd in tlio street, nnd by noon it was
so great as to render tho pass.igo of tho

tried various means to romovo tho fig

what different appearance. It was only
when tho sash had been removed and

cause of tho singular vision, and all
agreeing that "there was something in
Early on Monday morning another
crowd gathered around tho house, and
Dr. Wm. D. Lamb, a prominent physi
cian, obtained permission torcmovo tho

it was placed In his window opening
upon tho main business street in tho
city, aud every ono could got a lino viow

and whllosomo wcroof tho opinion that
it might bo tho result of tho lightning,
when somo person had been sitting
near, others thought this theory ono 01
i mpossibility. Of course tho many su
perstitious wcro satisilcd that It was tho
"ghost of the dear woman and nothing
moro." Thcro is ono thing about it at
least, that seems strange, and that is
tlio fact that no faco or figure is to bo seen
in looking from thoinsldo, Dtiringtho
day a firm of photographers, nfter sov
oral attempts, succeeded In getting n
very good likeness of tho sash and tho
faco it contained.
No 0110 can account for this strango
phenomenon, but men who arc practi
cal and possessed of a good sharo of com
mon sense, conclude that it must bo ono
of theso curious defects that will some
times appear in window glass. Tho
strangest thing in its connection is that
it was not discovered until after tho
death of tin Inmalo of tho houso. Thoso

How DrcniiiH nro Caused,
In order to provo that almost nny

Mr. Maury caused n series of experi
ments to bo performed on himself when
asleep, which nflorded very satisfactory
First experiment Ho caused himself
to bo tickled with a feather on tho Hps
and insldo tho nostrils. Ho dreamed
that ho was subjected to a horrlblo pun
ishment. A mask of pitch was applied
to his faco and then torn roughly off,
taking with It tho skin of Ids lips, noso
Second experiment A pair of tweez
ers was held at a littlo distnnco from his
ear, and struck with a pair of scissors.
Ho dreamed that ho heard tho ringing
of bells. This was soon converted Into
tho tocsin, nnd this suggested tho dajs
of June, 1819.
Third oxperiraent A bottlo of cau do
Cologne was held to his noso. Ho
dreamed that ho was in a perfumer's
shop. This excited visions of tho east,
and ho dreamed that ho was in Cairo,
in the shop of Jean Mario Farina.
Many surprising adventures occurred
to him there, tho details of which wero
Fourth experiment A burning lucl
for match was held close to his nostrils.
Ho dreamed that ho was at sea (tho
wind was blowing in through the win
dows), nnd that tho magazlno in tlio
vessel blow up.
Fifth experiment Ho was slightly
pinched on tho napo of tho neck. Ho
dreamed that a blister was applied.
And this recalled tho recollection of n
physician that had treated him in his
Sixth experiment A pieco of red hot
iron was held close enough to him to
communicate a slight sensation of heat.
Ho dreamed that robbers had got into
tho house, anil wcro forcing tlio inmates
by putting their feot to tho flro, to re
veal where tho monoy wa3. Tho idea
of tlio robber suggostod that of Mmo.
d'Abrantes, who, ho supposed, had
taken him for her secretary, and in
whoso memoirs ho had read somo ac
counts of bandits.
Suvonth experiment The word intra-
fagaramua was pronounced in his ear.
Ho understood nothing, and awoke
witli tho recollection of a very vaguo
dream. Tho word maman was next
used many times. Ho dreamed of dif
ferent subjects, but heard a sound liko
tho humming of bees. Several days
after, tho experiment was repeated
with tho words .dzo)', Castor, Leonore.
On awakening, ho recollected that ho
had heard tho last two words, and had
attributed them to ono of tho persons
who had conversed with him in his
Eighth experiment A drop of water
was allowed to fall on his forehead. Ho
dreamed that ho was In Italy, that ho
was very warm, aud that he was drink
ing the wino of Orvieto.
Ninth experiment A Hght.surround
ed by a piece of red paper, was repeat
edly placed beforo his eyes. Ho dream
ed of n tempest and lightning, which
suggested tho remembranco of a storm

Once a Week.
The other day, says tho New Orleans
Picx.yune, a very pretty bluo eyed co-quottlsh-Iooking
creature mado her ap

"In what can I oblige you, madam ?"
inquired tlio polito official.
"Aro you tho Chief, sir?"
"I havo that honor."
"Are you a married man ?"
Now, tills is a question which modest
bachelors find it dlfllcult to reply to,
without blushing. Nevertheless, tho
officer bravely answered in tho nega
tive "I am fcorry for tills," continued tho
lady, "for I desire to consult you on a
Tho Chief balanced himself, first on
0110 foot, and then on tho other, looking
furtively tlio while at his visitor, and
"Why, sir, my child has been stolen
by Its degraded father, whoso nbtiso of
mo has compelled mo to seek other pro
tection. Unless you have been a mother
you cannot understand my grief."
Didn't "Bless" the Whiskey, A
Kentucky lawyer on n circuit was ask
ed to dino with tho Judge. At table,
tho Judge, ns was his custom, nskod a
blosslng, and shortly after took from
tho sideboard a bottlo of old Bourbon,
of which ho asked his friend to partake,
partaking freely himself, ns Is nlso his
custom. After dinner tho lawyer said
"Judge, will you permit mo to ask
you u question ?" .
"O, certainly," replied the Judgo;
"what Is It?"
"I observed," replied tho lawyer,
"that after you had asked a blessing,
you set on tho bottlo. Now 1 wish to
H3k. whether you are ashamed to ask a
blessing on tlio liquor, or whether you
thought it good enough without It?"
Tho Judgo took tho easo uutler adviso
incut. Chillicothe, Ohio, has an ordl
nauco closing oven apothecaries' shops
on Sunday, so that tho inhabitants must
either bo taken sick early on Saturday
night, or put off their Illness till Mon
day morning, which is exceedingly in
convenient for thoso who hivo much
business to nttend to 011 week days.
I hold it to bo 11 duty to bo llboral
and generous oven to tho Illiberal and
narrow minded. And it 6ecms to bo a
pitiful thing for u man to aspire to bo
truo, nnd speak tho truth, and then to
complain In astonishment that truth
has not crowns to give, but thorns.

Why U rain wator soft ? Bocausu it
Is not impregnated with earth nnd min
erals. Why Is it moro easy to wash with soft
water than hard? Becauso soft water
unitos freely with soap, nnd dissolves
It Instead of decomposing it, ns hard
Why do wood ashes mako hard water
soft? 1st. Becauso tho carbonic acid of
wood ashes combines with tho nulphato
of llmo In tho hard water nnd converts
it into chalk. 2d. Wood asl 10s con vorts
somo of tho solublo salts of water into
insoluble, and throws them down as tt
sediment, by which tho water remains
Why has rain water such nn unpleas
nnt smell when It is collected In it rAlu
tub or tank? Becauso it is impregnated
with decomposed organic matters.
Why docs water molt salt ? Because
tho very mltiuto particles of water In
sinuate themselves Into tho pores of tho
salt by capillary attraction and forco
tho crystals apart from each other.
How does blowing hot foods mako
them cool ? It causes tho air which lias
been heated by tho food lo change rap
idly, and givo placo to fresh, cool nlr.
Why do ladles f.m themselves in hot
weather? That tho fresh particles of
ttir may bo brought in contact with
their faco by tho action of tho fan, and
its every fresh particle of air absorbs
somo heat from tho skin, this constant
change makes them cool.
D'jes a fan cool tlio air? No; it makes
llio air hotter by imparting to it tho
heat of our faco, but cools our faces by
transferring its heat to tho air.
How Monkeys ame Cauuht. Tho
following plan to catch monkeys boats
tho old trick of pelting tlio samo ani
mals with stones to mako them pick up
Monkeys tiro such cunning croaturc3
that 0110 woul supposo thorn much more
dlfllcult to catch than other animals.
Pitfalls will take a lion, and tho fam
ished monarch of tho forest will after a
few days starvation, dart into tlio cago
containing food, and thus bo secured.
But how aro tho monkeys caught? Tho
npo family resemblo man. Their vices
nro human. They lovo liquor and fall.
In Darfour Scnnarr, tho natives mako
fermented beer of which tho monkeys
aro passionately fond. Awnro of this
tho natives go to tho parts of tho forest
frequented by tho monkeys, and set on
tho ground calabashes full of tho enti
cing liquor. As soon as monkey
sees and tastes it, ho utters loud cries of
Joy that soon attract his comrades.
Then an orgio begins, and in a Bhort
timo tho beasts show all degrees of in
toxication. Then tho negroes come.
Tho drinkers aro too far gono to mis
trust them but apparently tako them
for a Inrgo species of their own genus.
Tiio negroes tnko somo up, and theso
immcdiatelybegin to weep nnd cover
them with maudlin kisses. When a
negro takes one by tho hand and leads
him off, tho nearest monkey will cling
to tho ono who thus finds a support.and
endeavors to go off also. Another will
grasp him, and so on, till tho negroes
lead a staggering lino of ten or n dozen
tipsy monkeys. When finally brought
10 t ho village they aro securely caged
and gradually sober down, but for two
or three days a gradually diminishing
supply of liquor is given them, 60 ns to
reconcile them by degrees to their cap
tivity. A younci lady read in a paper that
if two young ladies would each take
tlie polo of it galvanic battery in onu
hand, and then complctoio circuit by
kUblng, tho sensation upon the lips ws-s
exactly that of tho prtfcsuro of a mus
tnche. Sho immediately communica
ted tho factjfo a number of friends: n
battery was. secured, and tho experi
ment tried, and found to work lo n
charm. A largo number of pocket bat
teries have been oideicd, fo that hero
nftcr when Indies meet and kiss, as is
their custom, they can iliut their tyes
nnd hilly enjoy tho satisfaction of feel
ing a gentleman's lips pressed to theirs.
Judcie K , of North Carolina, Is
a great stickler for forms. Ono day n
soldier, who had been battered consid

witness. Tho Judgo told him to hold
tip ills right hand.
"Can'tdoit,slr,"sald tho man.
"Got a shot in that mm, sir,"
"Then hold up your left."
Tho man fcuid that ho had got shot In
that arm too.
"Then," said tlio Judge, sternly, "you
must hold up your leg. No man ever
can bo sworn, sir, in this court, by law,
unless ho holds up something."
A speaker at a juvenilo picnic is said
to havo delivered an address of which
tho following is a Fnmplo: "You ought

sister a blow over tho eye. Although
sho didn't fado nnd dlo In tlio summer
time, when tlio Juno roses were blow
