(TncitE Is n singular Italian proverb, which
birds us"Ncvcrspcak 111 of tho month of March."
A horseman though tho valley sped,
Dark arched the branches overhead!
Wild blew the wind, black Rrow tho night!
Wild torrents leapt to left and right.
"Now, in hold tho nilddlo path,
Aim -senro tho waters In their wroth,
And reach yon light, which far I see,
Hy Venus I 'twill bo well for me,"
Ho reached the fire, ho won tho way,
Around Us blaro twelvo figures lay.
Welcomo they gave, y et little spoke.
Ho shared their vUio, ho dried his cloak.
Wclpl. Biro tho figures of his hosts,
And yet they seemed no fays or ghosts i
Yet gazing ou thorn brought a chill -Ascnso
or something vast and still.
Tho traveler had n merry heart,
Ood shelters such lu every part i
To every soul allvo was ho
As kind as mortal man could bo
Wild blew tho wind, down blow tho dust,
As 111 tho month or March It must ;
Andyctrbrall thodustnnd wlud,
Ho spoke or March In accents kind.
"Many, I know," said he, "are rude,
And swear March grass docs llttlogood J
And that March winds and tho May sun
Mako linen whlto and maidens dun ;
Hut then 'lis true, by nil conlest,
Birds ha tched In March aro over best j
Aud March, II rough, Is sure, they say,
To mako lu tlmo tho loveliest May."
Around the lire a murmur rolled
Or wonder, slorni-llke, uncontrolled;
And a deep laugh or awful sport,
Llko Norse gods In tho Thunder Couit ;
And olio aroso from his earth-bed,
A fresh, young giant, whlto and red ;
"Hy all tlio winds 'ncath Heaven's nicht
What man is this who praises March?
'Thou know'st us not, yet soon shalt know.
From us the years nnd ages grow.
Thou secst what man did never seo,
For lo 1 the mouths In truth aro we.
O'er every land I long have blown,
All tint man says to mo Is known j
Yet never heard In all my search
A man beforo v,ho praised me March!
,"And, traveler, lor praising me,
Rich Is tho boon I glvo to tbeo;
No sun hy day, no storm by night,
Shall glvo theo pain or cause theo fright;
All wealth, all blessings man has known,

his quota at once, and retired with tho
intention of hurrying to his quarters
nnd going tobed beforo ho becamo ser
iously affected by it. Oil his way, how
ever, ho was passing tho door of a
gambling saloou, and having a dollar In
his pocket, ho resolved to try hlsfortuno
Accordingly ho entered, and placed
his money upon a card which won for
him several limes, nnd ho in a short
timo accumulated qulto a "pllo of chips,'
aud ho continued betting until tho room

cards and numbers multiplied Into
many times their original numbers,
and everything in tlio establishment
seemed to wax dim and misty, and
llually ho lost all recollection of oveuta
until, Into on tho following morning,
ho was awakened by his messmate,
Tom , when, to his astonishment,
ho found himself In hU own room suf
fering from an excruciating headache.
After rubbing his eyes and collecting
his wondering senses, ho was Informed
by his friend that their larder was com
pletcly exhausted, and, if they wero to
havo any dinner, it would bo necessary
to replonish it, but, as for himself, ho
had no money.
Tho Major replied that It was likely
his finances wero in tho same condition
of depletion, r.s ho had paid n visit to
tho faro bank,aud wassomowuat obllv

anythlng.ho presumed it would bofound

that yxm go to markot and lay In a good
