On long, sereno midsummer days
Of ripening fruit nnd yellowed grain,
How sweetly, by dim woodland ways,
In tangled hedge or loary lane,
Fair wild roso thickets, you unfold
Thoao ralo pink ttaru w Ith henrta of gold I
Your sleek patrician sisters dwell
on lawns where gleurns tho shrub's trim bosk,
In terraced gardens, tended well,
Near pebbled walk and quaint kiosk.
In costliest urns tlulr colors rest ,
They beam on beauty's fragrant breast 1
Hut you In lowly calm abide,
Scarce heeded savo by brceo or beo :
Y'ou know what f plendor, pomp and prldo
Full oft your brilliant sisters see ,
What sorrow, too, nnd bitter fears '
What mad farewells and hopeless tears 1
How some aro kept In old, dear books,
That oneo In bridal wreaths w cro worn l
How soino nro kissed, with Under looks,
And later tossed aside with scorn ;
How some their taintless petals lay
On Icy foreheads pale as they I
So, while tlieso truths you vaguely guess,
Abloom In manr n lonesome sjiot,
Shy roadside roses, may jou bless
Tho fate that rules your modest lot,
Like rustic maids that meekly stand

The Weaver Hoy l'ut In n Lunatic Asylum
Vlvitl Sketch of his Career ly due who
Knew Him His Wife nnd Home Instincts-
Exciting Scenes at His Lectures Inner
Life of u (iifteil hut Unbalanced (Jcnius.
Tidings have reached this city from pri
vate sources in England that the well-known
poet and lecturer, Gerald Massey, is sutler-
ing from aberration of mind, and has been
piaceti in a private asylum, lo tlioso who
havo been at nil fan iliar with tho career of
tho gilted and unfortunate poet, this sad I
news win not occasion unmixed surprise, in
bis marriage, ns infelicitous as Iiyron, ho
has been literally chained to a woman who
was at once uu Amuon, a .Medea, and a
Venus. The writer became acquainted with
Mr.Masscy in tho winterof 185 l-Cui in New
caatle-on-Tyne, England. Oerald was then
a young man oi twenty-six, engaged on a
lecturing tour. i'or three nignts no leciureu
ueiore tne i.iicrnrv anu rniiosopnicai do-i
ciety of that tovui, his terms being ten
pounds sterling er night. His success was
immense. Lord Havensworth was the chair-
man of his second lecture, and tho poet was,
for a couple of days his lordship's guest at
Itavenswurth Cnstlc. At every town he
visited on that tour ho was the guest or the
aristocracy, ami though this distinction did
not turn his bead or mako him arrogant,
there was no disguising tho fact that ho
gradually became in tho slightest degree
snobbish. While engaged in lecturing, ho
also was a regular contributor to tho columns
of the Alhcmctim. Consequently his world-
ly circumstances were easy, and he was a
jolly but temperate companion. He talked
much fit' his home, bis baby, his Noivfotind-
land dog, Carlo, and his "beautiful, bcaiiti-
ful wife;" and he u-cd to say Unit the money
io made by his lectures very inadequately
repaid him for tho homo happiness lie was
deprived of during his tour. Ho abhorred
tobacco, and repeatedly said ho could not
understand how a man of culture uud re-
fincmeut could introduce tho "beastly odor
of tobacco smoke into his home."

over half a dozen years his junior, and

painful lack of character about the Hues of
tho mouth. His hands where as white as

they were small, tho fingers had not that

Krtto Thorn gives tlio following excellent
ndvico tibout "JIow to travel :"
In the first place, know where you fire go

And If yon know what you nro gslng for,
It will be qui to as well.

.great measure the treatment you will receive
on your journey. Tho world nt large has
never lenmcd to discrltnlnato between the
deserving nnd the undeserving in nny oilier
way than by appearance, and if you would
be treated with courtesy and attention wear
good clothe. Not gaudy or showy nnc,but
something of a material which looks well,
and which will not. bo ruined by dust, rain
or dampness. Avoid nil trailing skirts lor
gentlemen to wipe their feet on, ami trim-
minps of fringes nnd laces to catch on other
people's button, and parasol handles.

Take no more baggage than you ran help.
Ynu will bo surprised, if you try It, to sec
how little you can bo comfortable with.
In a hand satchel tako along combs, soap,
brushes, towels, needles and thread, scissors,
strings, boot bultona, handkerchiefs, extra
uloves and stockings, and other personal
necessaries, for if your journey extends over
a week you will bo sure to need them before
ynu can get access to your trunk.
Check yout trunk when ynu set forth for
tho place of your destination, nnd having
put the checks where they will bo in no
danger of getting lost, dismiss the trunk from
your mind. There is not the slightest neces
sity of "worrying about it," as most ladies
aro in the habit of doing.
When you buy your ticket, get a railroad
map of the country you propo'o traveling
over, together with a time table of distances.
Theso aro furnished by every railroad of
note. and ny consulting mem you win ne

travelers with questions.

FUNL-IULS in 177G.rFunerals touched
weddings at tho point of feasting, and were
often very expensive, showy and pompous
occasions. In some parts of tho country,
especially among the Dutch of Long Island"
and New York, it was tho custom of ayoung
man to lay by his earnings after becoming
of ago until a sullicient sum had accamulat-
c(t to provide for him a "respectable" fun
crat w-hen ho should come to die. Oftcn-
times the young burgher would reserve ball
0f tho portion of wino which he bad liberal-
ly laid in for his marriage, to be used at the
funeral of himself or his wifo. Special in-
vltations were sent out for funerals as for
parties. Tho clergymen, pallbearers and
physicians attending were provided mih
scarfs and gloves, and sometimes each with
a mourning ring; whilo tho feast which fol
roast meats, wines, liquors and pipes, was
"ot imfreqiiently an occasion or coarse OX'
cesses, sometimes descending into niiarous
and noisy demonstrations. A "respectable"
funeral of this description might cost per
