Of nil llio flowers that como nnd go
Tho wholo twclvo mouths together,
This Htllo purplo pnnsy brings
Thoughts of tho sweetest, saddc.t things,
1 had nllttlo lover once,
Who used to glvo mo posies t
Ills eyes were blue ns iiyncltiths,
Ills Hps wcrored ns roses,
And ovcrybody loved to prnlsa
Ills prctly looks nudwlnsomo wnys,
Tho girls Hint wcut to school with mo
Mado lltllo Jealous speeches,
Hecauso ho brought mo royally
Ills biggest plums nnd peaches,
And nlways nt tho door would wnll
To carry homo my books nud slate.

"Tho mighty fascination
About that llttlo snub-nosed till 112
To win such admiration ;
Am if there wcrn'tn dozen girls
With nicer eyes nud longer e'urls!
And this I knew ns well ns they,
And never could seo clearly
Why moro than Marlon or .May
I should ho loved so dearly.
So onca I asked him, why was lids ?
He only nuswered with n kiss.
Until I tcasod him "Tell mo why
1 want to know tho reason ;"
When from llio garden-bed close by,
(Tho pmislcs wcro In season)
llo plucked and gnvo n llnwcrto me,
With sweet and sliuplogravlly,
"Tho gnidcu Is lu bloom," ho said,
"With lilies pnlo and slender.
With roses aud verbenas red,
And fiischla", purplo splendor;
Hut over nnd nbovo tho rest,
This llttlo henrtsenso suits mo best."
"Am I your llttlo hoji tseaso then?"
I asked with blushing pleasure;
llo nuswered yes I aud yes again
Heartsease, nnd dearest treasure;
That tho round world nnd all tho sea
' Hi Id nothing half so sweet as me!
I ll-tcned with a proud delight
Tun inre for wouls to capture,
Nor ever dreamed whnt sudden blight
Would como to chill my r.ipluro,
Could 1 forcsoo tho louder bloom
Of pansles round a little tomb?
Llfo holds sotno stem experience,
As most of us discover,
And I'vo had other losses slneo
I lost my llttlo lover;
But still this purple pausy brings
Thoughtsof tho saddest, sweetest thing!.

This game was played for somo time

rumbled and scolded Low for nu hour
or fi each duy ; but ho pocketed lUejips
and laughed in his alcove.
It happened about this time, that as
tho grumbling passengers wero about
leaving Parker's tho old dining house,
stout, hearty-looking man, comforta
bly dressed, presented himself at tho
coacli door and too!: a vacant placo on
the uilddlu beat. Ther wero llirco ladies

senger hud been taken in, three 011 the
middle seat, making it a full slago load.
Tiio new passjuger was iiuilo chatty
.ind sociable, and well acquainted with
men and things, and full of anecdote.
Ho proved (itiito an ngrceablo compan
ion. Rut oven ids versatility nnd good
uaturo failed to interest his fellow-
sufferers long. Hunger was too keen.
At last Scrowlcr'a fifth-rate liouso was
gained, and after a long nnd tantalizing
delay dinner was annouueod. Tho gen
tlemen Willi ladies had b.irely found
timo to help them, and then got clover-

fork, when "Too-too-too oto o!" rang
thh drivei's horn at tiw door of the
dining-room, followed by his loud
"Coach right oil', gentlemen! Take
your seats, quid;!"
Up sprang the passengers and scram
bled off, somo swearing nnd somo too
much under tho fear of being loft bohind
to think of anything olsobutgcttlngiti
sldothostnge. Rut tlicro was 0110 among thorn wiio

"Tho atngo la going, sir."
"Dnt I'vo not half tlnished my dinner

tering to himself nil tho whlio in an un
dertone. Then seizing a turkoy in ouo
hand, two roasted chickens nnd his
well-tilled handkerchief in tho other,
ho bowed to landlord and said
"Good-day, sir I I'll finish my dinner
on tho road 1"
Scrowlcr was too much surprised and
confounded to interfere.
Thus equipped, tho passenger mado
his nppcnraiico nt tho coach door, nnd
crowding in, took his placo on tho
mlddlo seat; tho ladlos twltlercd, tho
men laughod or looked grave according
to iholr humor, but our hungry pnbscn
ger seemed In no way disconcerted.
"Won't you liavo n dish, and n knife
and fork 1" asked the landlord, who had
recovered Ids senses, and camo forward,
n few moments nflcr tho traveller had
seated himself, with tho articles, pre
senting tiiein as ho spoko with n mock,
polito air, intending to dash our hero.
Rut ho was not to bo thrown off his
"Tliank you kindly !" ho said, bow

Instruments. "I had forgotten these."
As soon as tho pair of chickens and
thu turkey wore adjusted on tho spa
cious dish, which tiio landlord already
repented having put in tho incorrlgiblo
traveler's way, tho latter sang out at
tho lop of liis.volec: "All right, driver !
Go ahead I"
Crack went tho whip, nnd off rolled
the singe, leaving Uonifaeo vexed ,nngry,
and yet amused nt tho liidicrotisness of
tho whole scene.
Aa for tho passengers, all shrunk in
stinctively from tho bread, meat, etc.,
which had been so liberally provided,
while the ladles turned up their pretty
noses, nnd ejaculated in n sofl, low
"Hold on hero stranger, will you!"
said ho of tho chickens nnd turkey,
"this confounded, stago jolts at such a
ralo that 1 can't carvo my turkoy."
Indicating with his fingers as he spoke,
on ono sido of tho spacious disli upon
which reposed his proveixler.
Tho individual thus addressed could
do no less than obey the request ; nnd
then llio samo was mado to his other
neighbor who lent tho required aid.
"And now, stranger, do you hold this
bread bag I" extending his clean, well
filled handkerchief to n passenger beforo
him. Ho was, in answer to this request,
politely relieved of his bread, eggs, etc.
Tho dish was now supported ou his
knees and firmly held there by his noxt
door neighbor, who began to enjoy tho
joke, as didmostof Ills other fellow-passengers.
In dissecting tho turkey and
pair of chickens, undcrnll tho disadvan
tageous circumstances, lie showed him
selfn skillful carver. Tho different parts
were nicely separated, nnd laid about
the dish neatly and quilo temptingly.
By this timo the odor of tbo fowls had
awakened into keenness tho unsatisfied
appetites of tho wholo company, who
were only wailing for an invitation to
help themselves. In carving, the ac
complished stranger bad surrounded
tho edgoof tiio disli Willi tho pieces of
turkey and chickeh leaving quito n
spneo in tho centre. Into this ho emp
tied the contents of his pocket-handkerchief,
consisting of a dozen or so of boil

"Now, ladles," ho said, lifting tho
dish and partly turning round so that it
rested ou tho taut leathern strap that
formed the moveable back of tho scat,
and thii3 was fully presented lo them

Tho ladles looked at tho tempting
exhibition, colored, and hesitated
"Don't bo afraid," ho urged. "Neces

Tho temptation wns too gro'it for ono
hungrier than tho rest, who, hesitating
no longer, took tho wing of a chicken in

other, and forthwith commonccd opera

After tho catublcs had fully disappear

How Wntcli Springs Aro Mmlo.
Tho method of making mainsprings
for watches as practiced In Now York
and other largo cities, is first to cut up
sleol of necessary thickness Into strips
of tho necessary breadth. Thoso strip3
aro then fastened by tho ends in n long
horizontal framo nnd tho edges and
8ldc3 of tho steel aro smoothed by pol
ishors fastened between two sticks and
worked by hand longthwlso on tho
steel, from tho ono end of tho framo to
tho other. After being prepared in this
maimer tho steel is wound closoly
round a wooden ccntro, in tho samo
manner as n ribbon is wound on a small
block, and in tho process of winding
ono end of each strip of stool is fastened
to tho end of another, and a number of
lengths being colled ono on top of tho
other. Tho roll of steel is thon put into
a furnace, tho necessary heat applied,
ami tho hot steel suddenly plunged Into
oil. In this condition, although tho
steel Is hard, tlioro is a certain amount
of flexibility to It, Just tho snmo as a
very thin nnd narrow strip of glass In
elastic, which provonts tho steel from
breaking when tho surfaco Is being pro
pared for blueing, and which is done Is
something tho samo manner as smooth
ing tho steel in tho first instance, only
finer polishing materials aro used. Tho
blueing Is dono by drawing tho steel in
straight lengths over an alcohol lamp or
a hot pleco of metal, which renders it
perfectly clastic, and afterwards it Is
cut to tho proper lengths nnd tho eyes
