Como to mr file, ul let me speak
Of that fnlrnutumn Btghl,
When paring la thy loie-Ut eye,

The cougsr's shiggy LldV I doffed,
Around my shouldrn flnng,
And thon, with e)e which Into had wet,
Didst touch nij lighted t ulumct.
Then knew I by that indent sign,
Tnnt o'er thy heart 1 reigned,
And felt the Mlngo'i sweetest dote
My warrior soul hud gained;
And from thy klssi's In that hour,
Drank dcw.drauglitu from thu lotus flower.
Then Kltrht Minltou we Most,
Tlio Indian Ood on high,
And watched the antumn moon, that sailed
Along a cloudless (Vy,
And said that chinglng heavens should sco
Our bright, unshaded constancy.
Since then, amid our forest chiefs
Thy mated one has stood,
When council fire Us gleaming sent
Across our rolling flood ;
And time has thinned thy locks of Jot,
slnco thou didst touch my calumet.
And little forms besldo thee sport,
Tho offshoots of tho vine,
Who laugh ns round thy matron neck
The field flowers wild they tnlne,
And clap their hands In rough delight.
And bid their sire behold tho sight.
But autumn moons have found us true,
And at ourorendoor,

And still at even's soft dicltne,

"Then it is all nettled. l!y tho way, I

upon having such a jewel of a housewife.
The weeks passed and a holiday came.
Mr. Dayton had gone to town the day pre

housekeeper had 'given permiion to the
servants to go also. She felt a welcome re

a few pieces with exquisito taste and skill.

A Si.votjf.An Stouy A strango story is
reported from Sraln. A detachment of Al
fonslst soldiers recently discovered in .1 seclu
ded part of n mountain chain a cavern which
wns inhabited by robbers, who had taken ad
vantage of the civil war In order to ply their
criminal avocations. An alcove was attach
ed to the subterranean- dwelling, tho door of
which the soldiers broke open. They wero
astonished to find tho apartment so decently
furnished, and provided with books, flowers,
and even a piano. In an easy chair sat a
vencrablo old man. The soldiers interrogat
ed him, but obtained only incoherent rcpllc:
tt has been ascertained, from tho confession
of one of tho robbers, that the old man was
the cashier of a banking firm at llourgos
that they had broken into tho bank, and 9to
ten the safe, and had taken the cashier with
them, in hopes that he would assist them t
open the safe. During the retreat, which
was marked by many adventures, the intret;
id old man succeeded in evading tho vigi
lance 01 his guardians for a short timo an
secreted the safe in a placo where he would
bo able to recover it afterward. When the
booty was miss-d, and tho robbers failed to
induce tho cashier to reveal to them tho
place where it was concealed, thev revived
tho proceedings of the famous chaficurs by
roasting tne feet of their victim in order to
extort a confession. Hut the inflicted tor
tures had a different effect. Tho man got
mad, and it was with the object of restoring
him to reason that the robbers bestowed tho
utmost attention on him in hopes that when

them the place where tho safe was concealed

Taste ix Dress, Tho French woman's
rule in dress is a good one to modify pre
vailing fashions to suit her' own taste. In
a word, even- woman in Paris dresses to suit
her individual fancy, and consequently wc
havo that infinite variety in Paris styles.
As a rule, with few exceptions, French wo
men btudy what will become them, more
than what is tho extreme of fashion, and
combine tho two so as not to appear eccen
tric or old fashioned, and yet not wear any
thing unbecoming just becauso it is fashion
able. A French woman never cares to have
many dresses, or as they express it, toilettes,
at a time ; becauso a dress never looks fresh
and new that has been hanging up or laid
by for some time. Sho keeps one dress for
early morning wear on tho street, another
for visits, and another for houso wear. She
adds a fourth for soirees or receptions, if sho
can afford it. Whenever eho takes off a
dress she folds it up aud lays it by (sho
never hangs it up) and thus her toilets always
look fresh and new.
Sleep ror. Children. There is no dan
ger that children can sleep too much. Tho
old proverb, "who sleeps, eats," is illustra
ted in llioso children who sleep most.
Wakeful children arc almost always pee

Their sleep should bo as much during the

A OAnm'UL Husband. In a villago of
Poiton a woman.nftor being very ill.fell into
a lethargy, ncr husband and those about
her belioved her to bo dead. They wrapped
her up in nothing but a piece of linen, ac
cording to the custom of tho poor pcoplo in
tho country, and caused her to bo carried to
tho burial ground. On tho way to church
tlioso who were carrying her passed so near
a bush that tho thorns pricked her, nnd she
recovcreel rrom her lethargy. Fourteen
years afterward sho really died, at least it
was so believed. As they were carrying her
to lie r burial and drew near a bush.'the hus
band cried out two or threo times, 'don't go
near tho hedges.'
When a lamp explodes, or is unset, and
tho oil take fire, great difficulty is exper
ionccd in extinguishing tho flames. Water
docs harm, for it will spread tho oil and in
crease tho area of fire. A cloth thrown over

but theso are not often at hand. Tho best
way to check an oil firo in such emergencies
is flour, and it is generally accessible. Lib.
erally scattered over burning oil, it absorbs
tlio lluld, deadens tho flame and can readllv
bo gathered up and cast out-doors when the
firo is extinguished. This fact is worth re
