NewMrthof loveliness 1 when sunbeams licet
Color t he drops of e cry passing show cr J
When all the air Is Harm Willi odors sweet.
And le.Hes peep out and ti.lckcn hour by hour;
When lltray, mystic clouds ot opal tint
Float leisurely beneath tno dreamy sky,
And the world thrills ulth murmuring that hint
At summer glotles coining b -and-b) i
If any weak despair or discontent
I.urk llko a subtle poison lu j our henrt,
Through tlmo nnd action wasted or misspent,
to that in all this Joy II has no part,
Up ! out 1 through light and pcrfumo take your way
To w hero tho solitude Is spell-beset
Willi deep, deep pence, beneath whoso hidden sway
Your heart may rest, nnd dreamily forest.
There lay yourself along the tender grass,
And let the scented breezes softly play
O'er bared brow, and watch the shadows pass,
And fall, and linger, and then durt away,
Chased by tho sunlight. See how glorWed
W Uli golden kingcups Is the endless gnen,
And pale, pale primroses, anddalshs pled.
And violets, purple-cytd, that peep between I
so gazing, listen. Let the music rare
Tn.it underlies all nntiuo sweetly glide
Into jour honit, and all Its aching i are.
Home up and oui. upon the Joyous tide
Of perfect melody, will leave no trace,
And j our refreshened heart will wake and sing.
And all the world will wear another face,
And life will seem so beautiful a thing
That j ou will turn and Blgli w 1th sweet surprise,
And w hlsper to tho gliding present, "Stay I
So fair you show to my new-wakened ej cs
That I would hne my life ono long to-day."
Life Is nn ecstacy night's early seeming,
. When day's gid moments hover o'er the brow ;
When all that cared fades In mMy dreaming
Transformed to gladness tor tho happy now :
Passions env, rnpt, her power of tongue to utter
When pants the soul translating words to lnoul.1 j
Heedless, anon, as ficsber visions flutter
Lite is an ecstacy night-dreams untold.
Life is an ecstacy ; as when a-weary,
Tho Arab bids his dromedary kneel :
Here shall w e res:, he cries. In accent cheery,
Forgetting morrow In our present weal;
Then the long, gleaming spear eagerly seizes,
Tli rusts It, overjoyed, deep In the gracious sand 3
With Its gay pendants ploy tlii evening breezes
Ecstacy I breathes, and lltt-s the bronzed bands.
Lifo is nn ccstney-l'ersiVs lark mald.-n
nesting, nlth hand to check, on chalky cliff :
Hound Oinin's peak, whoso treasure-depths shU
Tades one w itli lovo to guide his dancing skllT.
How well she knows,wlth evening shadows growing
Homeward 'twill turn upon the silent swells;
Veiling again the check of richest glow lng,
Whimpers, o, ecstacy ! to the lurk'nlng shells.
Life Is an ecstacy ; as, when a-thirstlng,
Dear melodies aro stranded on tbo ear ;
When some loved note, upon tho stillness bursting.
Tells how the absent fain would loiter near ;
And In a strain that j el hath need of naming
Urges the spirit to a rapturous tllght,
Annuls the past-a lite dlv inu proclaiming,
Tls ecstacy, 'tis music's heavenly right.
If life bo sleep, 0, let sleep bo unbroken !
It life be waking, who would care to sleep?
Of what Is not dost know somo certain toksn
That It 1 change I do not change to weep ?

MILS. HOU.NSLOW'S IlXl'EI'ilMENT.
A daughter had been the hope of Mrs.
Ilounslow's lifo. Thinkintr, when Lawrence;
was small, of the beauty of u little girl, loo,
with her curls running out in rings under
the laco and ribbons of her cap, she had'
been obliged lo change the thought to thati

bride, nnd give her all the comfort and none.

She had always been a lonesome body; an
orphan at first, and then so few years a wife
before sho was a widotv,vith her unruly boy

charming drcsics for tho pretty darlings, the
power to live their lives over again, in their

the young man enjoyed his iling" she knew
nothing about it. Vet Lawrence's "iling"
was not a bad one, a-i flings go ; ho drove a
fast horse, and ho loved a gamo dinner.
When the exuberauco of youth paised ho
would settle into a rejpectable citizen with a
baut account. To her eyes, to-day, ho was
Settle, liut not alone. It followed as
tho night tlio day that Lawronco would mar
ry a very pretty girl or n very rich one,
Neither would be to Sirs. Ilounslow's taste ;
the pretty girl hardly the companion sho
sought for herself, tho flighty head turned
by vanity,tho appetite insatlnble for flattery;
and the rich ono ma-tu ring Lawrence, and
consequently herself, Sho had chosen her
self a charming young girl with as sweet a
naturo as ever shown out of a blue eye ;
she frequently had her there, although tu no
effect oxcept in her own dreams, In what
dreams Mrs. Hounslow indulged by tho
evening fire apropos of Louise Mandell I
Somehow tho young orphan girl nlwaja
seemed sitting on the other side of the firo,
1U light daticing in her eyes, on her dimp
ling smile ; and sometimes Mrs. HouiibIow
saw that light glance on a little golden wedding-ring,
nnd sometimes on a littlo golden
nestling head ; and Lawrenco was always
standing on the rug between the two, look-
iug, witli equal tenderness In his dark eyes
at one hide and at tho other. That was her
evening dream. In the mo.rnlng Louise
moved about tho hou.0Vr)tli her, cutting
llowers, tilling vases, concoctir.g choice dish

How happy sho was going to bo lu this dear

It was Flora by whose sp n Lawrence was

I!ut Mrs. Iloiinsluw was not a woman to
endure without a struggle. Sho called some
wisdom to council. She did not express per
sonally the slightest dissatisfaction with
Flora, but she allowed other people to speak
disrespectfully of her when Laurence was
w'Khin hearing, knowing the force of public
opinion j she took care to admit iter beauty,
although in tho same brcatli telling some in
cidental tradition to tlio ilcriilit ol her
family j and sho was very liospitablu to two
fat old t(Kithle5 iiunts of Flora's, dwelling
witli sympathy al'terwaid on the lo-sot the
beauty ol their youth, and the exact like
ness between their ynitth nnd Flora's. "J
suppo.e," said .Mrs. llounslnw, "that Flora
will look ju-t like them twenty years away.
Well, it is.sometliing to have hnd beauty, ii

the loveliest enamel belt buckle j she can

his mother louked up at him with a twinkle
that cnuld hardly help being contagious.
"All I ah !'' she aid ; "what a thing it is to
be Law rence Ilounslow's mother ! I have ail
the pretty girls declaring ma tho mot de
lightful old woman ! Hut I suppose I must

"When I marry, mother " Lawrence
"You will suit yourself and me, too,
Dear me I" she went on, "I had almost for
goticti ; your Cousin Fanny is coming, poor
tbinr, and I am inviting all these girls to
cotno and mako it cheerful for her. She
loves young people, for all her crabbedness."
And as Lawrence acquiesced, no ono but his
mother knew how his henrt was beating all
I'oor Mrs.IIounslow! Lightly as she spoke
then, it was not without a tragic scene in
her room, with her husband's portrait for
sole spectator, that she had come to tho con
clusion to try her experiment ; notbecauso
of the experiment, hut because of its reason,
All! thero was the bitterness that the idol
was broken, that Lawrence, whoso father
was an angel in heaven, was himself, after
til, nothing but clay ! She wiped her eyes
'traly for another burst of tears.another blaze
Ctf indignation, to think that her marvel of a
Man was so small as to be tricked out of his
wild by such a subterfuge as her contempt!
As tliey lived a few miles from town, Mrs.
Hounslow had some excuso for her compa
ny. She had often heard that you never
know persons till you live with them ; Law
rence was to have a chance to know Flora
Furlong. What if it should end by bis pur
suing a better acquaintance with Louise
Mandell 1 She began her operations by con
fiding in Cousin Fanny a maiden lady of
uncertain ago nnd temper.
"Quite right," re-ponded Cousiu Fanny.
"I supposo men aro necessary in tho scheme;
but if I had been making the world I could
have dispensed with tho clement.''
"Fanny!" cried Mrs. Hounslow, regard
ing thie as derogatory to her defenseless
husband and outrageous to her living boh,
"Oh, indeed I" said Cousin Fanny, "the
b.ist of them is only a stomach. They are
all simple elevations of tho jelly-fish, their
great prototype and ho is nothing else. You
can reach their feelings, their nffections,
their pavions, their intellect through tho
stomach, tilow many a man has married
his cook ! The whole secret of domestic
qiiletisjustto keep that stomach well filled,"
Mrs, Hounslow could not Ray a word, It was
on exactly that theory that she was pro
ceeding. Three days of tho vlsitbad not passed be
fore an easterly storm gave her an opportu
nity. Blrs. Hounslow had been scarcely
able toconesial her disgust over Lawrence's
devotion to Miss Furlong. "Thero Is some
thing animal about that girl I" she exclaim
once, as Flora left the room.
"Very'1 echoed Cousin Fanny. "When
she eats-JI declare, when she eats; I expect
to see her put down her face like a dog and
lap the gravy."
Lawrence's banging the door shook the
house. Lawrence was doubly kin J to Flora
that night, lie sang with her, and then he
took her Into the littlo conservatory, "You
should always wear those rich stripes," he
said, as she wound tin Oriental scarf round
her, stepping in. ,"lt so recalls that 'serpent
of old Nile.' "
"llio sea-serpent, do you mean?"
And then, seeing Cleopatra n stranger to
Miss Furlong, Lawrenco thought of tho de
light of molding tho neglected intellect be
longing to such beauty. As for the young
lady, It.never cutercd her lovely head that It
did not contain all thero was to know, ex
cent some dry facts and figures that defend
It such as tho multiplication table, He
was looking baiik at tho group of girls
around Mrs. Hounslow telling their for
"Files around honey," she said, "all eager
for a mother-in-law;" nnd she looked up nt
urn nml laughed. "I halo a mother-in-

my mother died when I was born my hus
band will never have thai to complain of!"
They wcro sweet lips for such brutal senti

"How it rains?" sho said as the sleet
struck the panes.
"And I supposo every variation of the
weather adects n person sensitively strung
as you are,"
"0 ye.," said Flora lifting liercreat eves.
"And It does so spoil your boots I"
It was only beauty thai filled the cans of
such conversation. Presently some one said
"Flora! Where Is she? Such n capital Ideal
What do you think? We are each of us

looking in. "Come and hear about it
only I stipulate that mine shall be last."
"I protest," said Lawrence, As they joined
tho group, "against tho practice of any such
mysteries, Wilder and me excluded."
"That's right," chimed in Wilder, the
young millionaire, who had been added to
the parly for tho sake of cquipose.
"Mr. Wilder," said Cousin Fanny, sepul
chfiilly, "someday wheu you are cast away
on'.i dosert island, and your wife cannot even
make a johnny cake "
"Does that Island mean matrimony?" ask
ed Louise, slyly, of Cousin Fanny. !
"And when cast away on it," said Mrs,
Hounslow, "is it that tho cook nnd the
housemaids havo struck hands and struck
"Well, If this is to be," said Lawrence,
"you will at any rate intersperse puddings
with picnics, roasts with rides, marmalades
witli moonlight are there any morelaltcra
tives, Miss Louise!"
"As much," said his mother, "as you can
intersperse in a week's gale."
' It's ridiculous," said jTlora.turning away
now with young Wilder. "I wish there
wasn't any such thing'as a kitchen."
"And yet," said Mrs. Hounslow, looking
after her reflectively, "I should think she
would havo a genius for cookery; she has a
cnok's build the typical cook's."
Lawrence's eyes were blazing but his
mother went calmly on. "Well, it's an ex
periment," said she. "We nil have toj-mder
for it noiM aulres. What a farce Kate's
dinner will be! salt in tho whipped cream
and sugar in the mayonaiao but Flora's
will bo good,"
"Goo.l enough," said Cousin Fanny, "any
glutton must cook."
Tho storm selling in lustily, Ihere was a
fine season for tho am iteu'r cooks, who wero
going about with culinary literature next
lay, llko nuns with their missals, Lawrenco
said. "Knchanted in the book worms, wo
are to eat our way through these volumes,"
rim fir-t dinner was of course an absurd
fai'ure, being Kto's; but thev made so
merry over it that it seemed, as Kiitedeclar
ed, better than if it had been good. Louise
replaced it on the next day, by one asexqui
site as any little French dinner, so perfectly
prepared and so perfctly served that Law
rence looked with an amazed respect at the
littlo being in his mother's place, whose ge
nius had ordered it all, and wlro was as com
posed as if she had merely threaded her
needle. The next day it was Miss Furlong's
turn ; and certainly a mere bewitching pic
ture of a cook than sho made, with her hair
tied under the prettiest of caps, her soft arms
bare witli all their dimples, and her white
apron wrapping her front from head to
foot, could hatdly be drawn.
"Mrs, Hounslow," said young Wilder, "I
never knew a jollier idea than this sitting in
udgment on pretty caps and choice dishes.'
"A fine way to be stayed with flagons and
comforted with apples," said Lawrence,
"Well," said his mother, "there are Flora's
and some others in reserve; after them

If tho cool: had assisted Louise the least in
tlio world it wa3 owing to the young lady's
witcheries. Hut Miss Furlong had no witch
ery for cooks, and tho assistance vouchsafed
her camo lu tho withering manner of science
toward ignorance, and was scorned, And
although sho and Lawrenco began the play
in the greatest spiilts, long ere anything ap
proached completion Miss Furlong had be-
como so heated, so flushed and frowzy, so
greasy ana Uoury, so smirched as to her
dainty dress, and so 6tneared as to her love
ly face, that the occasion grew melancholy.
Then tho water boiled away, tbo fire got
too low, afterward got too strong ; she burn
ed her anus and scalded her fingers ; she
grew excited, stamped her feet, became fu
rious when a sauce rau over, and capped the
climax by slapping tho cook In the face,
who went to Mrs. Hounslow lu a great fury
and gavo warning. As one revelation af
ter another of this sort of sweetness and
light unrolled itself, Lawrenco looked at
tho beauty with wider und wider eyes, and
at last escaped, with the cook, from tho
disenchanting vision. An hour after tho
time dinner was served, and Miss Furlong,
rather red and blowsy, but transformed from
cook's linen to fine-lady gauzes, was given
tno piuce oi Honor,

had dealt so lightly with them through their
coat of basting that the company could not
deal with them nt all. When the sweet
breads appeared, as firm s the best of calf

"I thought you wit'yAf have a talent for cook-
lng," she cried.
"Why, what's tho matter7'- inquired
Flora, placidly. "Isn't It it good dinner?
There's plenty more to come."
"Good gracious I More?"
And then the birds, so liko burned chlpi
that they could not be told from the toast on
which they lay, camo on, and went off as

"They dip their wings in tears and skim
And thereat there appeared so cxtraordi-
nary a desert, tho sponge-cako of which so
exactly resembled boiled flannel, as Cousin
Fanny candidly remarked, that, vexed in
soul, the worthy dame declared, "I must say,
Wicked waste makes woful want."'
"I don't know what you mean," said
Flora. "I call it an excellent dinner. There
was soup, and fish, nnd roast, and entrees,"
chocking them off on her fingers.
"Otherel there I" said Cousin Fanny,
whoso cuo was to let the girl display all her
fine qualities, ns she afterward said.
"A great deal more of a dinner," return
ed Flora, angrily, "then you ever get nt
home, I'll be bound." And, ns Mrs. Houn

stupidity in that lovely head I Lawrenco
walked five miles in the pouring rain, and
came home with his incipient passion quite
thoroughly wet down.
Somehow after that dinner things seemed
to flag. Miss Furlong had not quite recov
ered her temper, and there was no spirit in
the others. In the evening Lawrenco did
not seem to remember that there was a con
servatory. Mrs, Hounslow and Cousin ratp
ny.kept exchanging glances ; the old witch
es were sure that the philter had worked,
tint tliey hardly dared to breathe, liut, in
reality, to Louiso Mandell nothing flagged.
Whether because sho was in the house with
Lawrence ; because now and then he spoke
with her, listened when she sang, took her
book and read some niae; because Law'
rence seemed now to look over Miss Fur
long, through her, anywhere but at her; or
because her own nature was so joyous, and
she couldn't help it she was guyer than a
ark, and filled the house with sunshine.
"It has been a week in paradise," said she.
"To compare a country-house in an eas.

long. "It will depend whether you were in it,
MUs Louise,' said Lawrence. And then
Louise colored higher and higher, nnd grew
redder than a rose, and Lawrence wondered
why he had never thought that littlo girl a
ittle beauty before.
Tho sun came up on Sunday morning,
just as the music-box ran down in the mid-
die of "Love's Young Dream," and Miss
Furlong announced that she was about to
leavo for home. Of course there was all
polite objection, and in tho midst of it the

on that beautiful mask of hers. "Oh," she
said, in an aside to Kate Farley, "wheu

Something to (tally On.
Just before dinner yesterday, says the
Omaha Ilerahl, a woman living on Second
street entered a First avenue grocery with
snapping eyes, and, as she slammed a tin
pail down on tho counter, hissed out:
"Mlnce-me.it, is it? Why don't you call
it slop, or stuff, or hen feed ?"
"Yes, that Is some of your mince-meat."
replied tho grocer, as he uncovered the
pail. "I remember of our buying this

"It is called mince meat madam."
"Hut it tastes liko saw dust aud pork

"I shouldn't wonder if it did: but you

made mince-meat is simply a nucleus to
rally on. It is the foundation, as it were,
of a good thing. You want to add more
