If you lovo mo tell me not,

Let me seo It In your eye

Let me hear It In the tono

If you lovo me there will be
Something I alone shall see ;
Meet or miss me, stay or go,
If you lovo me I shall know.
Something in your tone will tell,
"Dear, I love you, love you well i"
something In your eyes will shine,
Fairer that they look tn mine.
Jn your meln some touch of grace,
Some swift smile upon your face,
While you speak not will betray.
What your lips could scarcely say.
In your speech some silver word,
Tuning into sweet accord
AU your bluntness, will reveal,
Unaware, tho lovo you feel.
If you love me, then. I pray,
Tell me not, but, day by day,

THE WAVING OP THE CORN.
ST SIDNEY L1NIER
Ploughman, whoso gnarly hand yet kindly
Thy plough to ring this solitary trco
With clover, whose round plat, reserved alleld,
In cool green radius twlco my length may be
Scanting tlie corn thy furrows else might yield,
To pleasure August, bees, fair thoughts, and me,
That here come oft together dally I,
Stretched prono In summer's mortal ecstasy,
So stir with thanks to thee, as stirs this morn
With waving of the corn.
Unseen, tho farmer's boy from round the hill
Whistles a snatch that seeks his soul unsought,
And fills some time with tune, howbelt surlll ;
The cricket tells straight on his Btmple thought
Nay, 'tis the cricket's way of being still ;
The peddler bee drones In, and gossips naught ;
For down the wood, a ono-deslrlng dove
Times me tho beating of the heart of lovo :
And these be all the sounds that mix, each morn,
With waving of tho coi n.
From hero to where the louder passions dwell,
Green leagues of hilly separation roll :
Trade ends where you far clover ridges swell.
Yet terrible Towns, ne'er claim the trembling soul
That, craft'ess all to buy or hoard or sell,
From out your deadly complex quarrel stole.
To company with large amiable trees,
Suck honey summer with unjealous bees.
And take Time's strokes as softly as this morn
Takes waving of the corn.
Tn Harper' t Magazine for August.
"I am sorry," ho said gently, while trying
to avoid her tearful glance, "1 told you
onco beforo you need not be under the slight
est apprehension In regard to my safety. My
coming homo so late Is an uuayoldablo ne
cessity, llut I hope to get through with
tho troublesome business soon."
Ho shook his head. "That Is difficult to
say. And now, won't you kiss mo good
by?" Tor all answer, bIio stamped her foot vio
lently. "You aro a traitor. You don't tell
me tho truth. Oh, don't try to look so in
dignant 1 You know I am right, else why
do you so persistently avoid looking at
"You will bo sorry for this one day
Margaret," ho answered, in low, pained
tones, "sorry you possessed so littlo tact to
appreciate my love and forbearance."
"I won't bear this any longer I" she cried,
bursting into angry tears. "I'll yes I'll
go home to mother 1"
If she expected to seo him surrender at
thi terriblo threat, she was mistaken.
"Don't," was all he said, in tones of quiet
significance. And then he was gone.
Gone 1 without his accustomed caress and
fondling. And, horror of horrors, without
the vision of the dread mother-in-law having
had any other effect upon him than tho ut
tering of that quiet, significant, monosylln
bio "don't." She saw tho man bring up tho
horse, saw him mount with his accustomed
ease and agility, saw him slowly take up the
bridlo and ride off without vouchsafing a
single glanco towards the window behind
which he knew sho Invariably stood to catch
the last wave, of his hand t Like all high
spirited natures, Margaret's anger was of
short duration. Now it was fast melting in
a feeling of remorse and tenderness. It was
tho first time they had ever parted so would
he turn back ? lie had already reached tho
gate; in another moment he would be out of
eight yes, he turned round at last 1 Slowly
he raised himself in his stirrups and gazed
wistfully towards tho casement. I!ut he saw
no one. With a woman's inconsistency!
Margaret had drawn back behind the cur
tains. She saw the look of disappointment
that crossed his face. Her feet itched to run
down the stairs alter him, clap her hands
round his neck, and so "make it up" before
ho went. But pride restrained her. The
gate closed behind him, and tho bends of
the road hid him from view. A'ow she sped
up the lawn to the gaten ay. She had some
vague idea of being yet in time to tell him
how sorry she was, and that she could not
bear to part bo. But he was gone ; she was
too late ; all that she perceived was a horse
man rapidly disappearing in the distance.
With slow gait and drooping head she re
turned to the house. It was iu vain she tried
lected having seen him tako n letter from
Ills pocket tbo night beforo and hastily
thrust it into the escritoire. Gono now was
her recent repentance, good resolutions, and
revived trust. Sho would read that letter,
yes she would, cost what It might. Her
hypocrite 1 She wai going to catch him now.
Of course) that's where Ii'h evenings wero
spent, at that woman's and nowhere else
Bhe shut her teeth hard as sho Inly vowed to
obtain n divorce from him, tho false, wicked,
cruel, cruel wretch 1 There was the proof of
hU perfidy, there in her hands! But first
sho woultl read read it and then ah, then!
She stopped in her wrathful tirade ns
She sat by the window and staring out nt
tho whirling snowflakes in numb nnd muto
despair. A fierce wind was waillngaud moan
ing round tho house. There was every ap
pearance of an impending storm. How
long, how dreadfully long the day seemed In
dragging tho weary hours along. Would it
never, never reach iU closo?
Darkness set in sooner to-day than usual.
Thank heaven for that! Tho weather pre
diction has been verified. A severo storm,
increasing momentarily in fury, raged and
shrieked abroad. Tho snow had changed
into rain, which tho howling blast drove in
fierce gusts against tho casement. Margaret
sat by tho sitting room fire trying to sip her
fivo o'clock tea. Sho had not tasted anything
tbo whole day long, and had only yielded to
the importunities of tho klndhcartcd cook
to cat something nt last. At any other tlmo
sho would have hugged herself with delight
in comparing the snug, luxurious picture,
within to the wretchedness and discomfort
without. Tho leaping firelight reflected it
self in tho polished brass fender, danced up
and down the tali mirrors, frolicked between
the engravings on tho wall, chased lUelf
among the warm-colored furniture, till it
found itself playing at hide and seek In and
out of the heavy crimson hangings. Tho
lamp had, according to custom not yet been
lit, as Margaret loved to sit in the dusky
twilight dreaming, and building the airiest
of airy castles. llut this evening her
thoughts wero occupied with other things,
They wero painfully dragging along the samo
road they had been pursuing all day. Tho
"My Dear Bertie: I cannot no, I
never can tell you of the horror and an
guish that seized mo at receipt of your news.
My son to havoboen guilty of such an ac
tion I My son I my once prized darling
child 1 But 'you have yourself to blame for
It, yes, yourself and Margaret. You wero
both infatuated with him. It was no uso
my speaking to you. I told you not to
trust him j and now I hope you'll believe
next time I say anything. And so all that
pile of money is gone 1 Ten thousand dol
lars! Its awful! How will you over meet
the blow? You say you alono will have to
bear tho loss ; you could not think of mak
ing your partner suffer for what you con
sider to have been your fault Introducing
your brother-in-law into the businesi. My
dear Bertie, that's very foolish, allow mo to
tell you. I don't see why your partner
shouldn't go shares in your losses ns well as
your profits. You might just as well have vague fears and terror had increased in in
lost the money in some other way. My son, tensity as time wore on. When sho essayed
my son I It's awful to think ho is no better to give them shape or color, she shunk back
than a common thief, lou say he cashed appalled. Sho dared not. She sat watch
tho bills and then absconded ; that tho books ing the grotesque shadows the firelight cast
are all at sixes and seven, and you have to upon tho walls. What;funny figues they wero
stay in the office till near midnight to ar
range all in proper order again. Dear me,
it's shocking ! But there's one consolation
I always told you how it would be. It's
all your own fault; nnd now, of course, you
must bear the consequences.
"About your strict prohibition not to
breathe a word about It to Margaret I can't
say I approve. No husband should have a
a' secret from his wife. But of course you
know best. I'm so upset by the shameful
news I pcarcely know what I am doing.
My nerves are all in a perfect tremble.
"You want to know whether I have seen
anything of that bail, wicked boy. My dear
Bertie, that'sjust like you. Don't you think
if I had I would t-oou havo inarched him
back again? You think he's still in this
vicinity, do you? Then all I can say is I'm
sorry for your belief. My conviction is that
if not already in California, he is on his
way there. I can't say I approve of your
wanting to manage tho affair quite by your-
nppearingnnd disappearing, nodding nt each
other, bobbing up and down, pursuing each
other suddenly ; then so suddenly vanishing.
What strange effects tho leaping flames pro
duced. Sho pushed aside the tray and
wheeled her armchair into her favorite cor
ner by the chimney. Six o'clock 1 and it
might be quite another four hours beforo
Bertie came home. What a wild night it
was! How the rain beat against the win
dows and the wind howled down the chim
ney. Sho shivered ns sho drew her scarf
more closely around her. What in tho
world should she do to escape from the pain-
fulness of her own thoughts till her husband's
return? There were several books and mag'
azines lying on the table; among tho latter
to-day's paper, oho recollected sho had not
read it yet. She would do so now. The
firelight was quite bright enough to read by;
so she would not ring for the lamp.
Murder! There it was written in largo
capital letters, staring her in the faco so
'Murder! murder!" Let mo in, let mo In 1"
Oh, for tho will to shriek out.for the blessed
blessed power to move. Hut sho may as well
be made of lead for all tho capability the
has of rising. And still the dcathshcad draws
nearer and nearer, the evil flare advancing
and retrograding in woful sportlvencss. as if
tantalizing her before it shall reach out Its
forked tongue to twist and twino around her
slender throat. "Let mo in, let mo In I"
comes tho piteous wall closely pres-'el
against tho window panes. Tho wlud fling
ing Itself o longin Impotent fury against
the casement ccase3 suddenly,aslfgathering
all its remaining strength in ono final effort.
Still powerless to move, sho glares with
staring eyeballs upon that fatal window,
waiting, watchlug for that nameless, horriblo
something she had been expecting all this
time which she knows to bo hidden out
there, biding its time to enter. "Let me In,
let mo In, isheard again now; not plaintive
ly as before, but shrieking close to her In
deadly agony and despair. The Sea of blood
advances and closes around her. Drip,
Iron, drip, drop. Tho skull is quite near
her now, grinning, leering.chattering. "Mur
der I" Tho bristling tongue has ceased its
cruel, tantalizing game, and twisting itself
round and round her throat, hissing with
scorching breath, "Murder! Let me in, let
mo in 1" There is a crash, a terrific roar and
howling, a fearful rattling nnd clattering.
The storm is vaulting in its demoniac gWe,'
It has shattered tho casement, torn back the
shutters with ruthless force. And now the
terrible dread, tho fearful agonizing horror
that has been upon her finds hope at last.
"Let me in, let me I" There it is in the
open-wrenched window, round which the
rain holds high carnival. Oh God be good
to us and merciful to us. Tho f ea of blood
parts on either side, tho storm howls "Mur
der I" and slowly, slowly, a face, woful,
vivid, ghastly, rises out of it.
"Bertie 1" sho shrieks in a voico in which
body nnd soul seem rent asunder. The
scorching, livid flamo had entirely encom
passed her. She now holds out no longer,
and mercifully knows no more.

throw off this leaden horror nnd play somo

it changed, and its patient expression was
suddenly transformed into a sullen threat

had acquired positive ferociousness. The
funny long ears disappeared, and in their
stead rose a strange distorted shape, with
menacing and cruel eyes and diabolical

"Not very ; in f.tct scarcely at all. With
care and good nursing she'll be all right
again in a week s time.
"Thank God for that!" These words,
spoken in a deep tone of heartfelt gratitude,
was the first sound Margaret heard distinct
ly after recovering consciousness. What was
the matter? What has happened? Sho had
a confused idea ofsomething horrible hav
ing occurred, but what it was Bhe knew not.
She tried to raise her head from the bed on
which she was lying, but fell back with a
cry of pain. All her limbs wero stiff and
aching ; there was a strango sensation about
her throat and chest, while tbe hand which
she mechanically put up to assist ber was
swathed in big cloths. At her cry somo one
quickly came to tho bedside, and stooped
over her. It was her husband.
"Do you know me, darling?" ho asked in
low, tender tones.
For a moment she looked at him with
wide-open staring eyes. Then all seenied to
come back to her clearly, distinctly. Again
she uttered a cry not one of pain now, but
of extreme thankfulness.
"0, Hertie," she sobbed, "I thought you
wero dead murdered you know," she added
iu a low, frightened whisper.
He smiled reassuringly. "I am safe and
well. I wMi I could say as much for you
Sho tried ugain to raise her band and this
time looked wonderingly at tho bandage
that preventen her. Ho perceived her look
"Don't raise it,!' he said in tho 9amo low,
reassuring tones. It will soon be well again;
but for tlie present you must bo very care

"What is tho matter? What has hap
"Don't you know ? poor darling, poor dar

you. It seems you fell asleep by tho fire
and bad some ugly dream that prevented
your waking. A spark of the fire must have
alighted on your dress, which fortunately
being of thick material, had not timo to ig
nite very quiculy. Thank Heaven I arrived
just in time to save you, though not before
your poor littlo hands had become somewhat
blistered. Your chest is little hurt, In fact
not much I assuro you. In fact the doctor
says it'a a mere bagatelle. You see with my
famous nursing you'll be quite well again In
a week's time."
Ho bad much ado to keep the tears that
would dart to his eyes, from betraying them
selves iu liis voice. Sho was silent for a mo
ment, then Bhe said, faintly
"Lay your faco to mine, darling. I want
to feel you, to touch you. Close, mite
close. So. Now tell me,"
whisper, "is my face hurt ?"
"Not a little l not one bit.
"Quite. Not that I would havo cared for

was afraid you might lovo mo less. Thank.
Yes, I know, I know.
Sho pressed her check close against his
own and so lay for a moment, mute but hap

been a dream, llut yeu your face I saw
