    Summer'* (harm*.
Bat terenps, clover, snd fosthiry thistle,
Bntrei fUea, bees. and locn*ts that whistle.
Heliotrope#, ro#e*. and monimir-jj'nriea.- -
These are but snatehen of summer's stories.
Pitwrt* that are blushing to ninnies sweeping.
Taiht'lit* and shadow*, and lily-hud* shaping.
Noon# that are brooding o'er night* that are
tender, —.
Th* are but snatches of summer's splendor.
Waterfall*, river*, and WATCH that are sighing,
Murmur* of sea-shell* on wet leaches tyfug,
WMapen of pine-trees breeze* are bringing,—
These ate but snatches of summer'# singing.
Robins and bluebirds, and swallows * n ''
Twitter*, am! song*, and raptures
Attar of all the whole rear'* sweetness
This is what make* the summer seoinpleteiieas
Tired Mothers.

A little ellow loan* npin your knee,
Vonr tired knee, that ha* so nnicb to bear ;
A chili!'* dear eve* are loeikmg lovingly
Prom underneath a thatcli of tang hit l-.air.
Perhaps you do not heed 'he velvet timch
Of ivarui, moist fingers folding your* ao
tight ;
You do not prise this blowing over much.
You almost are too Ured to pray to-night.
Bat it i ble*si-dne** 1 A year ago
I did not see it a* I do to-day—
We are *o dull and tliaukhws ; and too slow
To catch tlie aniiotune till it slip* away.
And now it aeiin* wurjiassiug strange to ms
fl.-.t. while 1 bore Uie badge of mothcrhivod,
1 did not kisa more oft, aud tenderly,
The little child that brought me iwilv goovl.
Aud if. swna night when yon .t dowu to rvl.
You mis* this c!t*>w from your uivd knee,
Tiiis restless curling head from off your bres*t
This loping tongue that chattel* coo*taully
If from your own the dimpled hands had
And ne'er would nestle in your (vatms again;
If the white fe*: luto their g.ave had tripped,
1 could not blame you for your heart ache
then !
1 wonder *o that mothers ever fret
At Uttle children clinging to their gown ;
Or tl at the fiH>t|irints when the days are wet.
Are ever bitch enough to make vlicru frown.
If ! could find a little muddy boot.
Or cap or y.vj*.i h on my cha>aher door ;
If I oomd ka*s a rosy, resth-s. foot.
And heat its patter in my houio -two morw:
H I ceitsld mend a broken cart tiwhr,
To-morrow make a kite, to reach the skj--
Ti.cre i* no woman in God a wi-rld -vukl way

always hffve tiiefu turned Iff Kitty, and
made over wi h somethhig liaudsowe—

! • the era, Acs ; aud although Rex says
they're like the So tch lairvl's hose, of
which there wan none of tlmorigiual left,
on i that it would Ik- a great deal better if
there wasn't si nee the umkiug-over cos'.a
more tiiaii Another whole silk would do,
and all that sort of nonsense, still r--
!naiu the fact that there is an eiqnifute
tire**, as goi.l im new, which costs
nobody a penny; and he can put
that in hi* pipe and ainoke it!
And there's the velvet and lace,
besides, to trim another dress by
iaid-bye, of course—although lace does
fray out and catch ao. Only the other
nigut, running up t> Mr*. Oleasou's cot
tage ou the cliff, I just tlrrew my shawl
over my ht ml—that lovely Chautilly of
Grandma Mursdeu's—ami the wind nlew
it against tlie sweet-brier, and the sweet
brier waved one way and I ran the other,
aud I suppose it will cost me fortv dol
lars to have it meuded, if there is u lace
maker in the city who can meddle with
that stitch. Howevea that's neither
here nor there. I say I approve of econ
omy—at least I do if lie want* me to ; at
least I used to do so—and Rev says I
don't even kuow how to spell the word,
and that when I go shopping, 1 say to
the sidesman, " IY.-ar me, how cheap!
can't you take a little more ?"
It wasn't, you know, as if we were in
any want that we would have this talk
ids -ut economy ; for between the money
that dear papa left and all that Grand
ma Marsden has given me, and the in
come entailed on Rex, we are able to do
pretty much as we please, within,
ami allow ourselves some one great ex
travagance every year. We took* it lust
year iu a foot of wood. A foot of wood ?
I'll tell you all about it But, as T was
saying. Rex approves of economy whoth-.
tr Ido or not; he thinks he tiies; he
says that's the way papa ami Ormnhna
Mnraden ma*le stul kept; and once lie
said that to go on as we were going
would make a prince comu to the* end of
hiapume. Aiui I said, " How do ws go?"
" Ad libitum," said he.
" And how would yon have us pi, I
" AH if there wore a day after to-iftor
row," he returued. a.
"I'm sure, Rninald I'.irka, I don't
know what yott mean. As if there were
a day after to-morrow ! Of conrsg there
is, unless the world comes to unread."
"I don't umai that. I with
some thought for the future."
" Oh, if you only m-nn foresight, I ,
have day after to-morrow's dinner ord> r-
Cii to-day—-white soup, salmou, lol'sU-r
cutlets aud sweet-breads, roast chieken
and tongue, peas and |>otatouH, ami rata-'
tin pudding and strawberry envint—And
T should think that yu forasight enough
for siiy body."
" Dinner enough. A dinner like that
for two! Well, after we've picked a
little of it, what becomes of the rest?"
" Becomes of the rest? How doyni
suppose I kuow ?"
" You ought to know."
" Whv, it goes into the kitchen."
"Ami tlnn?" '
" Reginald Parks! what on earth lias
come over you ? Do you snp|)ose fam 1
going round spying through the kitchen
to s*e if the servunm eat too mnfli|"
" No, I don't suppose you are. That's
just what I say. But I suppose you
should." . ' ;
" Hurry into tlx) kitchen and say:
'Save this,'and 'Don't touch that'—all
dressed for dinner, too! That's just your .
idea of economy. Rex i Take one of my
beautiful toilettes into that steamy,
greasy place where a dinner hss jn-t
been concocted, keep, pethnps, the breast
of a bird and lose a breadth of silk ! You
put me in mind of old Tom at his cider
barrel, 'saving at the spile and spilling
at the bung.'"
"Very inelegant., my dear, I moan
nothing of the sort. If I were a house
keeper, I should go in in the morning"—
. "My morning toilettes are just as
"Oh, hang your toilettes! I should
go in in tlie morning and take my inven
tory and my measures together. And if
the servants knew yon were coming daily
to perform that act of Buperiutenddiico,
it would make the difference of a couple
of dinners a week to u."
" I'd rather take in sewing. I shouldn't
<lnre to look them in the face. The idea
of grudging my servants "
"Olt, Clara, you're perfectly hopeless!"
then Bex wound up, And at that I cried,
and of oourse then he had to console mc;

we lnul exjxeted Colouel M Man us, but
'he hadn't come—and of course 1 was
' nicely dressed. I always do dress for
Rex, but I had taken unusual pains to
day, for Rex had some business reasons
■for desiring to make :ui uuo uur.only
i good impression ou the colonel. The
. colonel was securing a charter for some
tremendous undertaking—tunneling (.' >-
, topaxi or the Atlantic, or aumething of
the sort, sure to make the everlasting
fortune of all included, and Bex wished
to lie included; and the colonel *a* io
irascible, and MI importiut and potni*'tn
and haughty, that we wanted lit* ilnslil
liave the best of everything; .-o in 1
alxwuoe a magnificent dinner was spoiled,
and my superb toilet 1 - I l;ii never

said Rex. " Perhaps U) old Ul ike went

nursing the idea tliat he should like to
be a millionaire; aiui there were some
excellent schemes aud ch.inecs for iiipi
tal that he knew alsqit, jftul it vt xe.l him
to think be jiod no capital to spare; a i i
he dwelt on it and dwelt on it. It sn mod
to him so ignoble to be living on his
grand ather's entailed estate, and to la*
making nothing of his own, ami a-- we
spent every penny every year,lie decided
that the <no way to get any capital wa*
to save some,ami that I was the one to
save it, and if he could only force tue
into a la-ginning, the thing would Is*
done lv natural momentum. But tliere

"Sec here," said lie, that aftennsm,
as we walked; "look at thai. Enough
wood to last in tin* round thrown;
on th s shore, and nobody j>ieking uji a
stick of it J"
"It's nothing bnt chips," said 1.
"Chily?" hai'l he. "Let me tell
yon, chips make as good a blaze as heart
can wish. We could bum D: •• ■ i*.*lr*;
in every grate wo have ; and some of
them sire goodly pieces."
"And go without 'mr Ijeautiful sea
coal fire!"
" Our s*a-<y>:il costs u - thirty dollars
a ton, and tla-se c])i|w cost nothing. I
snpposc if tliey .lid cost thirty dollars a
ton, shipA would be chnrtereil to bring
Diem fn*u tho emls of th" earth. As it
is, Terence aonld I** gathering them
when he lias nothing else to do. And ON
for lieanty, Clara, I should 1 ik* to
any one compare the liesnty of an) <*>al
with tiiat of a drift-wood bla/.e, rolling
all manner of splcudid alkaline-'lyel
flashes of color up the chimney !"
" Oh, miiii I, "if iron tfiink it
will be nice to have Iwkets of these
poverty-ftrickan clops standing round
tiiefeisirnis, risking no oid"of a .Inst and
hWer 1 , th** fire f<*l every two minnto*, or
else all out, and the little sjiurks snap
ping everywhere, you'd bettor try it.
There's no excuse for a wood fire iifry-'
way, unless it's of whole logs, with a
tremendous core of red heat, in a huge
chimney big enough to warm a Ciistle."
" But they'll certainly burn in the
kitchen stoves."
" I'd like to hear yon asking Nora to
hum tliem instend of her Lu-kawmina
and Franklin. They'd have time to do
mitliing else in tlie liit<*li< n but feed tlie
fire. 'Tisn't even in the right shape for
kindlings there."
"Clara, I believe you dilain tlie koH
ideaof economizing anywhere."
" I dou't see any economy in ih If it
were necessary, it would twi" a very *lis
ngrecable necessity. But if we can't
itff.ird to buy our coal, we liaJ better
shut up the Louse, and dismiss the ser
vants, and live in a tent, ami lmra our
chips outside it, under Die bake kettle."
"Very practical. I'm glad to see
that you know what a hake kettle i#."
" Well, did you marry me for a cook ?"
" What a little fraud you'd have been
if I had ! Come, don't lie silly. 1 didn't
marry you to be rained by careless waste
and extravagance."
"Oh ! oh ! oh !"
"What do you call it, then ? Here
are cords of drift-wood thrown up with
almost every other tide, and instead of
harvesting it, we lrt it wiisli away with
the next, ami yon laugh at me ami g< t.
angry and call me names if I propose to
save some of it."
"Call yon names J"
"Yes, yon do. You think it's mean
and sordid."
" I never said so, anyway. That's
your guilty conscience. Oh, pshaw J
I think it's silly and very impractical."
" Well, I don't care what von think !
Here's the beach covered with this light
wood, and I'm goiug to call the servants
and have it gathered before dark."

London deserves the palm for having
the most daring thieves on record. A
man went to sec a house to rent in a
street near Prury La no. He left the ;
home standing nt tho door and returned
in five minutes. The horse and buggy
were there still, but everything else was
gone. Tlio thieves of the vicinity hud
stolen the gig-lamps, tho apron, Die rug,
the cushion and the whip; they had
filched the very blinkers, head-stall, liel- >
lyband and k>cking-strnp off the pony ;
and however that exemplary animal had
consented to remain unharnessed be
tween the shafts might be considered as
next door to a miracle. Captions people
might object because homo and all were
not stolen, but such unfair criticism is
disarmed when it is remembered that
only five minutes' time was given to
make way with the property.

- owned by James M. Jones, about two
mile# nortu of Tremont, Clarke county,
Ohio, there stool a tree ou Die north
!uk of a very rapid stream coiled
■ Storuos creek. By Die constant washing
aw*y of the soil under the tree, it was
caused to ban over Die water so that it
was deemed necessary to cut a portion of
the top off about eighteen fact from tbe
roots, and by so doing, it partially re
sumed it* natural erect puaiDou. The
top that wn* sevens! from tho trunk wa*
dragged immediately around the curve
where the tree stood, for the purpose of
i protection to the bank of noiL During
: the freshet* of this spring and winter
I ttierc was a quantity of drift gathrreyl at
that jK-.i't suffieient to turn the current
of th** sirestn a little way from the tree.

llow Anaconda* are Captured.
The anscotula in Die Zoological Gar
dens, London, which lias luwti consid
ered quite ft re*i>ectftble sr.ake, turns out
to be a comparatively small creature of
it* kind. Henry J. Cooke, of Caracas,
Venezuela, in a letter to Frank Buck
land, states that iu the small rivers
which flow into tlie Orinoco there are
large numbers of anaconda* much larger
than the one the society ho*, and that in
n large pond near triend's house ill
Matnriu lives in shy retirement one that
is thirty-six feet long aud a yard in
diameter. The managers of Die Gardens
have offered $2,500 for the capture aud
delivery in England of this serpent. It
requires an expert fisherman to catch
these creatures alive. In Africa a live
dog is used as bait, and after Die dog
has been bolted, the boa coils up and
takes a nap, and then Die fisherman
stuffs him into a bag. A big pocket
will be required for the gentleman in
Die Maturiu pond.
NUTRITION IN CORN.— Analysis gives
the nutritive value of corn to be com
pared with that of oats, as seventy is
to sixty. An average of several ta
bles takes the value of a given quan
tity of •►at* to represent 100, while the
vulue of the same quantity of corn
would be ninety-five. For feeding to
young and growing animals, com is
less suited than oats, and the differ
ence between the value is greater.
