A sliver beauty smooths each, line
Drawn by Its patient architect.
To look upon Its fragllo framo
And noto Its splendor In tho sun,
No bultdir known to human tamo
You say can do what thM hath done.
It has no shingle, roof, or lcam,
It Is not buttressed on tho land
Its airy illagrco and scheme
Hccm products ot a fairy's hand.
How swung aloft, how lightly stayed,
Without a window, board or pane
A dream In dellnlto shapo arrayed,
A castle from tho realms ot Spain I
Though llranest might despair
its lines to mend when once undone,
I sco its owner In tho air
Across tho silver ramparts run.
And when tv break has crept Into
Tlio checkered strund3 that greet the eye,
Has mado tho battlo places new
And not a scar can you descry.
On gcometito cttrvo and coll,
Dew.dlamonded beneath tho sun,
This llttlo builder's wit and toll
Was spent until tho work was done.
O silken houso of gossamer,
Thy woven wonder does not ceaso
And yet tho blood-stained doors deter
Wayfarrcrs fond of llfo and poace.
No revelers In those chambers meet,
No Jocend footsters Jar tho floor

HOW A WIFE WAS WON.
Tliu openititi of tho Grantl Iudus-
trial Exposition had brought mo to tho
city in tho early part of tho spring in
io70. TirC'it irom Jouir standinK anu
walking around : moro tired still by
tho shows and wonderful exhibitions
of tho raiehty progress of civilization
at homo displayed at this exposition, .
turned my steps homeward ono after
noon earlier than usual. I had taken
leavo of my friends, making an en
gagomcnt for a reunion later on in tho
evening, and directed my courso to ono
ot tho quiet quarters ot tho city in
which my hotel was situated. Tho
less ircquent tho bazaars and show-
windows became, so much moro lUBig-
niHoant became thu number of foot
passengers ou the streets. iiut it
seemed to mo a much moro stylish'
looking part of tho city than tho pub'
no unves oi tuo central portion, oo-
cause here tho high, grave-looking
houses were either government oflices
or were inhabited uv city oihoials or
wealthy private citizens.
Jiclore mo walked for some distance
a young and elegantly attired lady. At
a curve of the street I succeeded in
gettinc a llcetinc izlitupso of hor pro
file, and felt mjself thereby urged to
observe carefully even tho knot of
golden blondo and suushiny hair, half
covered bv the dark Encrlish hat, as
well as tho extremely delicate, graceful,
figure of tho still youthful girl.
Suddenly her stop faltered, sue half
turned, lingered for a moment, and
then walked hastily towards me, past
me, and back over the road by which
she had just come. Not far ahead of
us canio sauntering along an omccr,
with a lady on his arm, gayly chatting
and laughing. Could they have fright
ened my Unknown ? A sudden inter
est stirred within mo ; 1 wished to
gain somo insight into her strivngo
conduct, and theiofore mado a hasty
turn, following her and keeping only a
few paces behind.
Then I saw how she pressed tho lit
tle clenched hand passionately to her
heart, and with tears in her violet eyes
and a half-sad, half-scornful expression,
murmured something to herself which
my oxcited imagination fancied to bo :
"O, foolish heart, why aro thou not
quiet ; why mounts tho blood to my
oheek and compels me to turn back lest
t betray myselt f
i be childish ebullition moved mo
unconsciously, and a feeling of ieal-
ousy stole over mo against that ofllcer
whom 1 bad involuntarily thought ot
n connection, with tins vouug girl. If
I had only dared to address her ; but
that I could not bring myself to do.
Sho (-vidcutly belonged to tho first class
of society, and nothing waB further
from my thoughts than a desiro to in
sult or intrude upon her. But fortune
A small package which sho had
hitherto carried slipped from hor arm
wiiuout uer Having rcmarKcu it.
Quickly 1 picked it up and gave it
back to its fair owner, with a few po
lite words. Sho looked at mo with a
surprised, somewhat haughty glance,
as 1 remained standing botoro uer
rather longer than was absolutely nec
essary, tier largo, violet, childlike
eyes were still fillod with tears and tlio
delicato faoo was deathly palo.
"I thank you," she said, briefly,
taking tho package from my hand.
Bat, I did not allow myself to bo
dismissed thus quickly.
"Vou aro not well, my dear young
lady,'' said I. "Will you not com
mand my services ?"
Something in my voice, perhaps also
my quiet, respectful manner, scemod to
inspire her with confidence. She look
ed at mo with wondor in her beautiful,
toarful eyes, and said, less curtly than
'You aro very kind, sir. I would
liko to have n drosohc."
I bowed : and while sho stood at tho
window of a flower store, I hurried
down tho street and soon found an
empty vehicle, in which I joyfully, and
with a gontlo feeling of oxpectalion of
what would happen next, drovo back
to my littlo Uiikiiowu.
Moauwhilo sho had rog'iined her
self-command ; only her hand yet
trembled as sho in entering tho oar
riago laid it lightly in miiio, and it felt
ico cold through her glove.
"Your residence I1" I asked, Sho
named ono of the elogant streets in tho
NYcst End, and as I called tho address
to tho ooachmau I know how certain I
would bo not to forgot it myself. I
closed tho carriago doors sho then
bowed her lovely head at tho open
window and thanked mo for my sor
vioo but sho spoko confusedly, and in
her embarrassment tier palo checks
oolorcd with a rosy blush, so that, sho
appeared oven much moro charming
"May I call to-morrow and inqutro
after your health 1" 1 ventured to ask,
but sho eeemod takou by surprise at
tho question and hesitated to answer,
whilo tho blush docpened on her cheek.
"Hi 1" cried tho coachman at this
moment, the horses started off, and as
1 1 stepped again on tho sidewalk tho
vehicle was already rattling away.
As it in a dream l ontoreu my noiei.
I could not refrain from laughing at
myself i this ardor, this interest about
a young lady entirely unknown to mo
moio beautiful, moro dazzling vis
ions than this childish, shy girl had
often during my lifo crossed my path
without having attracted mo particu
larly. I was a riddle to myself ; how
ever, I mndu the firm rcsolvo to flud
out to-morrow somo particulars about
this now street acquaintance.
A tow hours later 1 sat with a num
ber of ploaiant friends in ono of tho
best icstaurauts under tho lindens.
Tho conversation was lively and cheer
ful, and thero were many ladies and
gentlemen continually going in and
In the neighborhood of thu table at

"Who is that palo oiliccr ?" asked I
ot my friend Jb.ncb.
I indicated the direction to him.

"Well, nothing moro than that yon

For myself I never could havo attained

a delicately written card decidedly a
lady's baud writing iu which Herr
General Von Gerdshoff did himself tho
honor to invite Herr Baron Von T
to dine. I must confess I never had
received an invitation with similar joy.
What was tho excitement and expecta

with tho impatient, throbbing of my
heart, with which I, on tho appointed
day, betook myself to tho dinner. A

To my great annoyance my por

The time is near at hand for tho an
nual country fairs. There is no ques
tion but that these gatherings are of
great benefit to a community, and par
tictilarly the agricultural part of it,
whon they aro properly conducted.
Their succcss depends not alono on tho
societies having them in charge, but
also upon tho members of the commu
nity whero thoy aro held. It is tho
duty of tho society to ariango tho
grounds and buildings for exhibition
as neatly and conveniently as their
funds will permit, to offer as liberal in
ducements as thoy can to exhibitors, to
arrango their premiums according to
tbo value and importance of articles,
aud to mako their awards on a fair and
But when thev have dono this, and
all their other duties in the premises,
much remains to be dono to make tlio
fair a success. Tho surrounding com
munity should tako an activo interest
in it both in contributing to the display
and by attendance. It should tako
but a small measure of public spirit to
induco every person living in tho vicin
ity of tho fair grounds to help in somo
way towards making a creditable
showing. Whero a society in its ar
rangements lias not departed from tho
original purposes of an agricultural
fair, tho results upon the community
aro ot tno most beneficial character. Its
moro direct benefits consist iu intro
ducing a natural and healthy compe
tition in a most important industry, in
stimulating tlio people to more careful
and judicious work, in imparting new
ideas and useful information in regard
to matters of tho farm and household.
Many other benefits indirectly arise
irom them, such as the promotion of
social intercourse among a class of
people whose occupations too often
kept them strangers to each other.
Whero a fair is so conducted that
it is worthy of support, each member
of the community should feel an in
dividual responsibility for its success.
Contribute to the display in somo de
partment ; or, if not this year, try to
produce something for the next. Eu
oourage it at least by your attendance
and by a manifestation of interest in

Frightened by Edwin Torrest.
Ono of the beat known of American
actors, who is now living in modest re
tiremeut, tho other day told this story
of the stage to a party of friends :
"I began my professional career as a
supernumerary at ono of tho New York
theatres, said he, "and 1 shall uover
forget my first speaking part. Forrest
was playing 'Macbeth,' and I was sup
porting' him by carrying a spear. At
tho last moment the utility man, who
was to announce that Birham Wood
seemed approaching JJunsinane, was
nowhere to bo found. I was very am
bitious, aud had often besought tho
stage manager to let me essay a speak
ing pait. Tho golden opportunity had
come. I was selected to ho on in tho
utility man's place. A few moments
sufficed to make mo perfect iu the one
line I had to speak. When I hoard
my cue I inarched on tho stago and
boldly announced Mr.- Forrest : 'As I
6tood looking toward Biruain, anon mo
thought tbo wood begau to move.
Quick as a Hash Forrest had seized mo
by tlio throat and roared out in his
most teniblo voice : 'Liar and slave 1'
Being taken wholly unawares, I really
thought my last hour had como and
that Macbeth was iroini' to kill me,
juy lace was blanched with tear, mv
knees knocked together and t had just
strength enough to articulate : 'i'or
givo me Mr. Forrest, I didn't mean to
toll a lie, and I only said what the
stage manager told me. Like tuo dif
ficult passages iu novels, tho shout
that went up from tho audience may bo
bettor imagined than described. The
situation was too much for oven For

tors and telegrams up to Wednesday
and seemed reluctant to givo up. Yet
he was by no means unconscious of his

Charles J. Folger was a native of
Massachusetts and was born April 10,
1818, having passed his sixtv-Bixth
year at the time of his death. Ho re
moved to Genova, N. l . at the aco of
twelve years nnd was graduated from
the Geneva College with the honors of
his clas in 1830, being then but eigh
teen years oi age. lie at onco began
the study of law in the office of Mark
11. Ssibloy, at Canandaigua. Young
Folger was admitted to the bar in 1839
aud soon achieved prominence in his
profession. Ho was appointed Judgo
ot tho Ontario Coutt of Common Pleas
in 1811, remaining on the bench one
year, lie was also master and exami
ner in (ihjucery until the Chancery
Court was abolished by tho Constitu
tion of 1840. In 8.r)l he was elected
Couuty Judgo of Ontario county, hold
ing that ollico four years. Having po
litical as well as judicial aspiratlonss
he was elected to tho State Senate in
1801 and continued in that body for
eight years. Ho served an chairman
of tho judiciary committee, and was
President pro tern, of tho Senate dur
ing tho last four years of his servico
in that bCKiy, being tho recognized
leader of his party. Ho acted with
the Republican party from its first or
ganization in May, 1870, received tho
party nomination for one of the Assis
tant Judgeships of the Court of Ap
peals. A new Court of Appeals had
been created, consisting of a Chief Jus
tice and six Associates, and by tho
terms of tho Constitution each voter
was restricted to voting for tho Chief
Justice aud four of tho Associates. Tho
Democrats being m tho minority at tho
time elected Chief Justice and four
Associates, Judge holgcr and Andrews
being chosen by tho Bepublicans. Tho
term was fourteen years, but after hav
ing serving ten years ho was elected
Chief Justico in 18S0 for a torm of
fourteen years. He would have retired
however, on full pay after eight years,
as ho would thcn hiivo reached soventy
years, tho constitutional limit of ser
vice on tho bench in Now York State.
On tho accession of Presidont Arthur
ho was mado Secretary of tho Treasu
ry, an ollico which ho filled till tho timo
of his deatli with honest aud pains-tak-ing
fidelity. He was uomiuated for
Governor of tho State of New York iu
1882, but owing to tho factional fights
in tho Republican party at that time
ho was overwhelmingly defeated, his
opponent, G rover Cleveland receiving
a majority of 192,000 votes.
Friends of Socretary Folger say that
his death was undoubtedly tho result
of the worry, humiliation and shamo
that ho felt in consequence of his do
feat for Governor by Grover Cleveland
two years ago. Ho was a person of
great political ambition and he regard
ed the Governorship of Now York as a
stepping stono to tho Presidency.
When he received the nomination his
toy know no bounds. Tho State had
been giving a Republican majority
aud he thought surely that ho would
be elected. Ho lover got that notion
out of his head uilher nud was aston
ished when lirBt his own town and
then the State gave such overwhelming
majorities against him. Ho almost
went insnno at tho time. The position
in tho Cabinet instead of proying a
btmofit ouly helped to mako him moro
discontented and hurt his health. Ho
devoted weary hours to routine woik
antl was harassed. Ho nursed his do
feat and biooded over it, making him
self sick again and again. Finally ho
gave out ugain and went to his homo
in tho central part of Now York State.
His friends say that, liko Horace Greo
ley, ho died of a disordered mind nnd
that his death is littlo short of a polit
ical tragedy. As a Judge, Folger was
a bound, consistent man of integrity.
But whon ho left tho bench for tho po
litical arena hu becamo weak and ines
oluto and soon showed himself unfitted
to bear tho burden of defeat.
