I strolled last night In musing mood,
itetiectlng on my lonely state 1
Till, wearied out at last, I paused
And leaned upon a garden gato.
Tho old moon's mellow radiance hung
In golden mists among tho trees,
Kalnt odors, borno from distant Mowers,
Ebbed Idly on tho evening breeze.
As thus I stood, absorbed in thought,
I pressed against the gate tog hard.
It opened with a sudden Jerk,
I found myself within tho yard
A form enmo gliding dow n the walk ;
Sort arms embraced me, as, perplsxed,
I stood one blissful moment, w hllo
A f ncct volco soothed my or, tho nex!
It rose Into n shriek, then sobbed t
"O sir, how could you keep so stltl I
When all the time 1 'know' jou knew
I thought jou were my cousin Will."
These stars aro moons.or rather months;
Just no havo lllttod since that night,
And two of these lnve calmly shone
t'ron our wedikd llfo. It quite
Surprises tne to think ot It.
And she Is queenly, tall and fair,
Willi lustrous eyes, and such a wealth
Of-well wc call It auburn hair.
'"0 late 1" I've Just como from the club;
My wife sits silent, but n light,
Unseen before, lurks In her eye.
Once more I muse on that calm night
When first she met me at the gate,,
And wonder, while her eyes flame still,
It ever I, In days to come.
Shall wish It had been cousin Will.

A RAILWAY JOURNEY.
A close cab laden with luegajrp drove up
to Linton Station in time for the 7:30 a. ni
train fur the North. While the porters stir

passed straight through on to tho platform,
looking rather nervously about them. They
were two a very pretty girl in a most fasci

"Then cotno.along of me, Miss."
"No, no ; I must wait," and Edith, ho
was (jttito unused to traveling, grasped her
bag and did not move. The guard looked
astonished, but only shrugged his shoulders
and walked on. Presently he came back.
"You'll be late, Miss," be said, not en
couragingly. "Train'U be olf in another
minute." Edith looked at him in despair.
Should she leave her post ? Would Jenkin
never come back ? A loud aggressive bell
began to ring. Edith started up f she seized

"All full, sirl quick, sir, pleaso I"
"It's Mr, George!" cried Jenkins, sudden

Tho gentleman caught sight of Jenkins.
"Here, guard, guard I put mo In here I"
"Quick ; let mo in ! it's my niece,"
Tho train began to move,
"Confound you, bo quick 1"
Tito door was opened jilst in time, and
Edith, as much excited an Mr. George,
seized him with both hnnd-i by tho coat

Into the carriage. They wero olf.

''I will take cate of you," said tho uncle.
"I am very glad to make your acquaintance,
my dear." Iho "ray dear" sounded a littlo
strained, as though it wero not a common
expression on Undo George's lips,and Edith
looked up at him.

"My eldest children ! what do you mean?

"Dead ! my cousin Georgo dead?"

Poor little Addie! Was it true tbat
Georgo never got over her loss 1"
"Don't!" said Undo George, abruptly;
and he held up n newspaper upside down.
Edith touched his arm very gently.
"I am so snrry, Uncle George," she said
sweetly. "If I had known that you had
lost them both, I would not have said any
thing ; please forgivo me. And poor Aunt
Maria, too ! I beg your pardon."
Uncle Georgo threw down his paper and
looked smilingly at her.
"Does your mamm'a ever speak of me?"
"Constantly, perpetually ;" said Edith,
her voice still a littlo choked.
"And what does she say of me ?"
"She says that you aro tho dearest, kind
est, wnrmest-hearted.most sweet-dispositton-

have been a gallant olltcer and a loyal, true

Edith looked surprised.

"I'oi.r Guirijp I" sighed Edith.; "I had so

put she followed tho direction of his eyes.
Tho train (a very long one) was going round
a sharp curve, they were in onetof the last
carriages, and to her horror nnd terror, she
saw, about a hundred yards in front ofth'e
train, a whole herd of cows on and off the
line two or three frantically galloping.
All heads were Btretched out of tho win
dows, clamoring tongues and even cries re
sounded Irom the other carriages, but neith
er Edith nor George uttered a sound, only
she put back her hand and caught his; he
seized it very tightly in the suspense, kuow
ing well that a terrible accident might bo
impending. It was hardly a second, but it
seemed a lifetime. The frantic cattle rush
ed off the line in a body, atl but one unfor
tunate beast. Tho guards put on the very
heaviest brakes, but the impetus was so
great that the slackening wa hardly per-
'ceptible. It may havo hoen fortunnto that it
was so, for instead of upsetting the train,
tho cow was tos-ed off tho line utterly de
stroyed, nnd tho engine rushed on iu safe
ty. George nnd Edith sat down opposite to
each other; both were very pale.
"Thank God !'' said Edith, and she cov
ered her fac with one hand. George did not
peak, but be took oh his cap nnd looked
out of the window for one minute.
'NoiV I shall givo you some sherry," he
said, suddenly. "You are the pluckiest lit
tle brick I ever camo across. Any other girl
would have screamed."
"I never scream," said Edith, indignant
ly; "and I don't want any sherrj."
"J am your uncle, and I say you are to
havo some drink it up."
"That depends very much upon circum
stances. It would bo a great grief to mo to
givo up my profession."
"It Is very odd, but I certainly thought
that mamma told mo yon had given up your

"I havo often longed to go to India," cried
"Have you ?" said George, very eagerly,
"Oh, yes, beyond anything; life there

men nnd great characters aro formed In In
dia, and men have great responsibilities and
declopment for quite a tlKTcrent class of
most desirable qualities: there."
"That Is quite true; and you are just the
sort of woman to help a man to do any
thing." "I am so glad you think so, Uncle
George," sho said, laughing and blushing.
At 7 o'clock they reached a very large
station where tho train had half an hour tn
wait. They got up a cup of tr-a, nnd then
botlt being rather cold, they began to walk
vigorously up and down to tho very end of

At tho next station a perfect crowd of
passengers were waiting for the up train. A
great fete was going on in the next town for
tho visit of some royal personage, and tho
train was filled to overflowing. Presently
tho civil guard came up to the special car
rtage, and said, most deprecatingly, that
there was one gentleman who couldn't find
place nny where; and as he was only going
to the next station,-would they admit him
just for the twenty minutes? Undo George
consented very discontentedly, and very
grudgingly moved his long legs to admit of
the entry of a very Btout old gentleman,wlio
sat heavily down, and received into his am

The following address .to tho public was
mndo by tho ministers of Nashville, Tenu.
The good senso of the arguments will strike
everv one :
We deem it our duty as Christian mtnlc-
tera to utter a word of sober counsel to tho
peoplo whoin we serve, ou a subject, the del
icate nature of which, we trust1, 'we fully ap
preciate, viz., extravagant expenditures in
connection with tho burial oi ourdcad. Our
motivo for speaking Is two-fold. Xirst, from
our position, we are more fully cognizant of
the existing evil than other are likely to be
come secondly, we nave been appealed to
by a number of tho wliest and most prudent
men among us to give our Influence to tbe
correction of abuses in this direction. Cus
toms prevail which entail upon families in
moderate circumstances debts which harrasa
them for years and lead, in many cases, to
intolerable burdens. Tho facts nro so well
known that wo do not feel It incumbent up
on its to enter into uctaiieu statement oi
them. Tho circumstances of funeral occa
sions are such that the nearest relatives a
deprived of all power to judge wltb calm
ness, or control expenditures with prudence.
Often they satisfy themselves with giving
the matter into the lm nils of others, with the
single request that bucIi a burlat Is to be
given as custom demands. It needs, there-'
fore, that custom bo wisely regulated.
After a thoughtful consideration of the re
forms needed nnd practicable, wo advise, in
the selection of burial-cases and parapher
nalia, simplicity and utility bo tho criteria
suggesting that display on such occasions be
longs to paganism rather than Christianity.,
Tlie reform of most Immediate value
which we would suggest Is, that tho duty ol
attendance on tho part of tho public at fu
nerals should bt- universally considered as
ended when tlie religious service is conclti-
Jed nt the church or tho rvidcnceoi the de
ceased ; that tha progress to tho cemetery
and the interment should bo private; that
the family provide no carriages except for
their owu use. Wealthy Christian men
will readily "practice this self-denial when
we assure them that the keen and pressing
wants of widpws and orphans all about us
plead for this alleviation. "Public sentiment
controls in these delicate matters, and they
give form and force to this sentiment.
Allow us to bring to your attention one
other desirable change. It often occurs,
tb it the fond desire of friends to obtain the
latest possible sight of their dead prevents
the permanent fastening of the coffin-lid un
til after tbe close of the religious service,
when a space is given for those who may
wish to approach the corpse for a last look.
For two reasons we recommend the abolition
of this practice. First : Medical science
opens to us numberless dangers as attendant
upon the presence of exposed dead bodies In
crowded rooms. Secondly : Our own hearts
indicate to us that tbo proferabl6 time for
this last look is befure the assembling of tho
peoplo which wait upon the. funeral service.
Wo would affectionately suggest, therefore,
that in all cases tho coffin be hermetically
closed before the service, and tbat tbe body
be not detained for what often becomes not
only a tryiug but dangerous tax upon the
already overstrained nerves of sorrowing

Dr. Lynch, a wedding guest, before a Dub

the wedding guest only took the recognized
