When I was dead, my spirit turned To seek the much-frequented house ; I passed the door, and saw my friends Feasting beneath green orange-boughs, From hand to hand they pushed the wine, rl hey sucked the pulp of plum and peach ; They sang, they Jested, and they laughed, For each was loved of each. I listened to their honest chat : Said ono ; "To-morrow we shall be Plodding along the featureless sands. And coasting miles and miles ot sea." Said one : Before the turn of tide We will achieve the eyry-seat." Said ono : "To-morrow shall be like To-day, but much more sweet." "To-morrow,"' said they, strong with hope, And dwell upon the pleasant way : "To-morrow," cried they, one and aU, While no one spoke of yesterday. Their It e stood full at blessed noon : I, only I, had pasied away ; "To-morrow and to-day," they cried ! 1 was ot esterday. I shivered comfortless, but cast No chill across the table-cloth ; I, all forgotten, shivered, sad To stay, and et to part how loath I I passed from the familiar room, I, who from lovo had passed away, Like the remembrance of a guest That tarrletu but a day.

"Nor I,'' returned Mrs. Fenton. "I am always so thankful that we needn't be ashamed of any of our relations. There's sister Kate! who could be more delightful than she is?" "Oh, Aunt Kate is perfectly splendid 1" chorused the young people. "And there's Uncle Phil andAuntEmily," said Mabel, the eldest girl. "And Cousin Joe and his wife," added Florence, the second daughter. "And John and bit family," put In Mr. Fenlnu. "Oh I if you go to counting up, you'll never get through," said Tom, the son and heir. "But I say, haven't we any objection able connections at all? Isn't there some Id duller who'll turn up just at the wrong moment " "No, I haven't any," said Mr. Fenton. ' No o-o," fald Mrs Fenton, rubbing her forehead thoughtfully. "Stop 1 I think I remember one. Uf course Cousin Jf rushsl 1 wonder I didn't think before. But I don't know that she is objectionable j the fact i, I don't know anything about her. She is a niece of grandfather's, nnd is an old maid ; at least she ought to be, if she isn't married or dead. Her name is Hevlngton Jerusha Ilevlngton. I always thought it such n pity to spoil such a fine name as Uevingtnn with Jerusha, I hope she won't come ; I'm suro she must be perfectly awful!" The two young ladies had been looking at their mother in blank silence ever slice she had mentioned this unpleasant relation. Tom had pone off in a fit of laughter; s i that Mr. Fenton wns the only one who spoke : ' ell, if she comes, all we can do is to make tho best of it, and treat her ai well os we know how." "Oh, of course," said Mrs. Fenton, Tom hero looked at his watch, and started up, exclaiming that he should be late, he had an appointment, and bolted off, pruiiiis ing to be home early, Then Mr, Fento i ettUd down fnra pap j Mrs Fenton buried herself in "Ljirni Doone;" and the glrl yawned over their Japanese canvas, fearing a dull evening. .

"Who on earth is that 1" asked Mr. Fen ton, bouncing up. Mrs. Fenton dropped her book and gave a scared look Into the hall. "I tuppose it'i Mr. Vanderpool," said Ma bel. "Oh, no, he never rings like that," Bald Florence, Their old colored waiter had opened the door by this time, and a loud voice was heard inquiring "Does Mr, Kcntou Mr. Samuel benton live here ? " 'Ye,ina'aui,le, doos,"old Jama answered rely self ally. "Wn'nl, then, I piles I'll walk right In- I seen the folks through tho winder " nnd apparently befnro the old servant could stop her, the, owner of the face did "'walk right ntii" the parlor a ln.ll, strong-featured wo man, with Iron-gray hair, clad In a brilliant ly flowered dress that n bulging hoop-skirt showed to ndfantage, nnd a shawl of vlvltl red nnd yellow plaid.

The young man wns awful pleasant when I told him that I was one of your folks he Heems to set a heap by you." "Good gracioin I" thought Florence, with a shudder. "I wonder if she has been going all through the city advertising her relation ship to us 1" "Wa'al, Samuel," began 'Mrs. Jerusha "Yer ve got two fine, likely gnl; they ought to he'p their mar a sight in doin' housework and sich. It must take a powerful heip of work to keep nil them funin's "clean," with nil admiring, rutherawe-striick glance about the room. Then went on, "Is thein all the children yer've got, Mira ?" . Mrs. Fenton answered that she had bvo more, a son nnd a little daughter. Mabel offered to send for her littlo sister, thinking that a child might make converge easier, but MNs Jerusha answered,- witli such evident alarm and disrelish, "For law's sake, no I I ctn't bear children," that sho drew back of fended.'

To regain or to recover health, persons should be relieved front all anxiety concern ing diseases. Tho mind has much influence over the'body. For a person to think that lie has a tllse.tso may .produce that disease. luiswoaeo enecteu wlien the minu is in tensely concentrated upon the disease of another. It is found in the hospitals that physicians who make a speciality of cer tain diseases aro liable to die of them them selves ; and tho mental power is so great that sometimes people die from a disease which they only luvo iu imagination. Per sons havo been known who have become seasick iu antlcipa'ion of n voyage before reaching the vessel. Wo have known a per son to die from imagination that lio had a cancer in hit stomach, when he bad no can cer nor any other mortal disease. A blind, folded man, slightly pricked in the arm has fainted and died from believing thnt ho was libelling to death. Reading a medical book containing descriptions of certain diseases lias often produced the symptoms, even among oung medical students while they at last got the dis ea-e, utile s it was stopped by common sei.so treatment. Thereforo well per sons, to remain well, should be cheerful and happy; and sick persons should have their ut tenlioii drawn as much as possible from themselves, and directed upon tho subjects chcerlulto C'ltiieiiiiihilt1. jsotwithstaiitltug the mind is a product of the impressions upon the sn-cs vtjti, which thc.body is pro vided, and tin refnre greatly under the In lliience ol tin' Imtliiy contlit tins, it lias, iu its turn, so.iii! induence over the body nnd its sanitary conditions and this to a greater extent than is generally recognized. Every one knows, lor in-tance, how the, appetite can be iiierensid, diminished, or even de stroyed, by thinking about certain, things, or by joy or sorrow, supriseor fright. Above nil, let everv one avoid mental excitement. Nnthipg wcats out the body sooner. There fore, if you wish n healthy body and long lile, keep up moderate activity of body and mind ; hut, above nil, avoid anything that will came excitement. Kerp Straight Ahead. 1 ay no attention to slanderers or gosip mongers. Keep straight on in vour courso, and let their back-bitings dio the death of neglect. What is the use of lying awake of a night, brooding over tno remarks of some false friend, that runs through, your brain liko forked lightning? What is.the use of getting into a worry and fret over gossip that has been set afloat to your dis advantage, by some meddlesome busybody, who has more "tiinr than character ? These tilings can't pnss.bly injure you, unless, in deed, you take notice of them, and in com bating them give them character and stand ing. If what Is said about you Is true, set yo6rsdf right at once; if it is false, let It go'for what it will fetch. If a bee stings you would you go into a hive and destroy It. oulil not a thousand como upon you It is wisdom to say littlo respecting the iu juries you have received. We are generally lo-ers, in the end, if we stop to refute all tho bHikhitlngs and gosslpings wa may hear by tho way. They are annoying, It is true, but uot dangerous, so long as we do not stop to expostulate and scold. Our char acters are formed and sustained by ourselves nnd by our own actions and purposes, nnd not by others. Let us bear in mind that "calumniators" may usually be trusted to time and the slow but steady justice of pub lic opinion. Monkeys fcr Cotton Pickers. A Thomas county cofon planter has tried to put the imitative traits of the mjii- key to practical u-o in tho field. He thoiigglit that if he should put a number of monkeys into u cotton field, in company wiili a lot of negr ies who would begin pick ing cotton industriously, it would not be long nut. So he procured some 200 from South America, and made the experiment. It worketl to a i lisrin, No sootier did'the monkey perceive the negroes seize tho ci t ton hush am) strip it of its fleecy fruit thau they did the same with greater quickness ami ninth more certain hand carrying ulong no trash. It was magnificent The planter saw fortune smiling upon him; he stood iu tin- fu ltl and watched them all day. .1 .1 ... t - . I. . . .i .

A lilltle Advice to CorrenponJenti. We have already had a great deal of com plaint from some of our occasional corres pondents about mistakes which appear in their articles when they come out In print. We are awaro that In many cases the fault Is ours, but wo are confident tho matter ciuld bo remedied If our correspondents would pay a little moro attention to the pre paration of their manuscript. Printers are not Infallible, and our proof readers do some times make mistnkes, Wut we havo prepared a few practical hints and Instructions, and if our friends who writo to the paper once in a while will kindly act upon our suggestions, we will be personally responsible for all er rors that our compositors may make in set ting (not sitting) up their manuscript. Never write with pen or ink. It is alto gether too plain, and doesn't hold the mind of the editors and printers clasely enough to their work. If you nrc compelled to use ink never use thnt vulgarity known as the blotting pad. If you drop a blot of ink.on the paper, lick it off. The Intelligent Compositor loves nothing so dearly us the smear this will make across twenty or thirty words. Wc have seen him hang over such a piece of copy half an hour, swearing like a pirate all the time he felt that good. Don't punctuate. We prefer to punctu- ato all manuscript sent to us. And don't use capitals. Then we can punctuate nnd capitalize to suit ourselves, nnd your article, when you seo it in print, will astonish, even if it does not please you. Don't try 'to write too plainly. It is a sign of plebeian origin' and public school breed ing. Poor writing is an Indication of gen ius. It's about the only Indication of gen ius that a great many men possess. Scrawl your article with your eyes shut, and make every word as illegible ai you can. We get the same price for it from the rag-man as though it were covered with copper-plate sentences. iVvoid all painstaking with proper names. We know the full name of every man, wo man nnd child In the United States, and the merest hint at the name is sufficient. For instance, if you write a character something liko a drunken figure 8, and then draw a wavy line, and the letter M nnd another waving line, we will know at once that you mean Samuel Morrison, even though you may think you mean "Lemuel Messenger." It is a great mistako that proper names should be written plainly. iVlways writo on both sides of the paper, and when you have filled both sides of every page trail a lino up and down every margin, and back to tho top of tho first page, closing your article by writing tho signature just iibnc the date. Ilotv we do love to get bold of articles written in this style. And how we would like to get hold of the man who sends them. Just for tec minutes. Alone. In the woods, with n cannon in our hip pocket. lleveugo is sweet; yum, yum yum. Lay your paper on the ground when you write; the rougher tho ground the better Coarse brown wrapping paper is the best. for writing your articles on. If you can tear down an old circus poster and write on the paty sido of it with a pin stick, it will do st i 1 better. When your article is completed, crunch your paper in your pocket, and carry it two or three days before sending it in. This runs on t tie superfluous pencil marks and makes it lighter tn handle. If you can think of it, lose one page put nf the middlo ofyour(article. We can easi ly supply what is missing and we love to do it. We Lave nothing else to do. If correspondent! will observe these direc tions, we will hold ourselves personally re sponsible or every error that appears in their articles, and will pay them their full claim for damages when they make com plaint. We shall never forget the last man who complained under this rule. We can never, never, although wo should live a thousand years, forget the appalling look he turned upon us whilo .we were pulling his lungs out of his ear with the nail-grab. Our heart seemed turned to ice, under the Influ ence of that dumb, beseeching look, whilo we tore him to pieces. We have never torn a man to pieces, slnca' without feeling the hot tears spring to our eyes as wa think of that man. We have been tempted, time nnd again, to break ourselves of this habit of tearing men to pieces for trivial causes. But we digress. We were merely saying we are always happy to receive complaluta and correct any errors for which we are respousl uie.yrtixcAangc. Chicago has the champion croquet player of the world. And more than that, this player is a woman. Bho has never been beaten and probably never will be. The kind of a game she plays would likely nev er havo been known however, but for the following conversation between her husband and another man on a recent evening "No, you couldn't" was the reply, llut .1 am an old hand with the mallet, and I know I could beat her," persisted, tho man- "Well, I know you couldn't." said the hui bind confidently. "And I know I could," continued the other. "Look here, neighbor," Inquired the hus band, at last, "do you pretend to say that you could beat a woman playing who. the moment she saw you were going to win. would faint iu a fit across the last arch way ?"

At a time when Curran was only Just rising Into notice, and white he was yet a poor struggling man, Judge Robinson tt U said, ventured upon a sneering joke which, small though It was, but fur Curran's mAf wit and scathing eloquence, might hare done him Irreparable injury. Speaking of some opinion of counsel on the opposite side, Currau said he had consulted nil hi books, and could not find a case in which the principal In dispute was thus establish ed. "That may be, Mr. Curran," sneered the judge, "but I suspect your law library t rather limited." Curran eved the heartless toadr for a mo ment, and then broke forth with this nobte retaliation : "It Is very true, my lord, that I am" Joor, and this circumstance has certainly rather curtailed my library. My books are" hot numerous, but they are select, nnd I hop have been perused with proper disposition. have prepared myself for this high' pro fession rather by the study of few' good bonks than -by the composition of a great many bad ones. I nm not ashamed of my poverty, but I should be ashamed of my wealth If I could stoop to acquire it by ser vility and corruption. If I rise not to rank I shall at least be honest ; and should I ever cease to be so, many an example shows Ui that an ill acquired elevation, by making me the more conspicuous, would only make me the more universally nud notor iously contemptible." Spring Millinery. The mlHners are anticipating very few novelties this season. Chip bonnets of ecru shades will csntinuo in vogue but a great number of fancy strawi wilt also be Imported. There will be bonnets partly of chip and partly of lace straws, with brims of one and crowns of the other. The capote shape, It Is predicted, will pre vail. Tho fronts of all bonnets nil! be close against the face ; but thero will be some Va riations in the crown. Trimmings will be tied closely around th crown, and follow Its outlines, Instead of be ing massed in bows tUd'Joops. A great many flowers will be used, espe cially in wreaths and half garlands. Tilleul green appears in folisge of every plant. Wreaths of rose, leaves of shaded green will be used for spring hats for young la dies. Silk crowns will match the costumes in color, and the front will be of satin finished straw or fancy braids. White lace will bo used in combination with silks and gauzes for midsummer bon nets.
