The welcome flowers are blossoming,
In joyous troops revealed;
They lift their dewy buds and bells
In garden, mead, and field.
They lurk in every sunless path
Where forest children tread;
They dot like stars tho sacred turf
Which lies above the dead.
They Sport with every playful wind
That stirs the blooming trees,
And laugh on every fragrant bush
All full of toiling bees;
From the green merge of lake and stream,
Fresh vale and mountain sod,
They look in gentle glory forth,

THE GOVERNOR'S STORY,
Wo were very poor, said the Gov
ernor, my mother and .1. We lived in
a little cabin on General Linton's farm,
and saw a hard time. My father had
died when I was sixteen years old,
leaving us nothing but an honest repu
tation; and, although I ties stout and
healthy, my wage's were very low, and
I had to toil late and early to provide '
the necessaries of life. But I suppose
I would have been happy and — content.
od enough; that is, as much so as we
unsatisfied mortals usually aro, if it
hadn't been for a woffittn. I don't
know why it was that Helen Linton
made such an impression upon me, fur
she had by no means those groat and
noble qualities by which men, as a
general thing, aro attracted toward•
the opposite sex. On the contrary she
was proud, arrogant and overbearing,
and I was confident if she thought of
me at all, it was with feelings of con
tempt and disdain alone, Not on ac
count of my personal appearance, it is
true; for though I was rough and un- I
cultivated, and my hands were hard
with excessive toil, and my face brown
ed by exposure to the sun, still I had
wonderful strength and great ability,
,hair and eyes were as dark as
midnight, and many said that I was
handsome. Bat I was poor and she l i
was wealthy; I was General Linton''
hired hand, and she was General Lin
ton's daughter, and it - was the old, old
story. It must have been her bewil
dering beauty that drew me more and
more toward he •; for she Was a queen-'
ly looking girl, with flashing eyes and
magnificent dark brown hair, and
form tall and majestic and stately. But
whatever it might have been, I am cer
tain of one thing, and that is, that I
learned to love her with a painful con
suming passion that seemed about to
devour my whole being. I tried very
hard to smother it and to drive her
image from ray heart. I knew I might
as well think of plucking down the
moon or the stars, as to have dared to
aspire to her hand. But it was all of
no avail, and the more I struggled the
more I became entangled, until at
length, morning, noon and night, there
was but one face that I saw, and but
ono voice that I heard, and that was
the face and the voice of Helen Lin
ton. What was worst of all to me, in
some way she discovered my secret.
How I can hardly tell. They say mur
der will out, and the same can most
assuredly bo said about love. I had
never spoken about it to any ono, not
oven to my mother, and as to Helena,
I had scarcely over spoken to her on
any subject. It is true that some times
she would give me instructions in re•
gard to the flower garden, which Gen
eral Linton had selected me to man
age, having, as he said, a better opin
ion of my taste in such matters than
any of the rest of his workarion, but
she never condescended thither. I
worshipped her like a .star from afar
off, and knew the distance bet Ween us
to be as wide and impassable.
One day she came into the garden
when I was at work there, and, im
pelled by some unknown power, as it
wore, I gathered and presented to her
a choice bouquet of flowers; and wheth
er it was ..from my guilty looks that
she then discovered all, and determin
ed to check me in the beginning, 'or
whether she had already probed to the
depths of my heart and thought I was
presumptuous, I know not; but certain
it is she never spoke to me after that.
She had been in the habit of giving me
a nod of recognition whenever she met
me before this, but ever after she pass
ed me by without even a glance; dis
dain within her haughty eye, and con
tempt upon her scornful lip. You may
know that my life was as wretched as
it could well be. I used to sit down
by our fire, in our little cabin, after
my hard day's work was done, and
curse my wretched fate,.and call God
unjust in what I considered the distinc
tions be made in the human race, but
I little knew then what the .sequel
Crowds of company, gay ladies and
gentlemen, came every summer from
the city to spend the season at Linton
Hall, and it so happened that ono sum
mer catno among the rest a young gen
tleman named Arthur St. John. He
was reported to be wealthy, and hand
some ho certainly was, and it was not
very long before he commenced paying
devoted attentions to General Linton's
daughter; and it was easy enough to
see that she was as much infatuated as
ho was. They used to ride by our lit
tle cottage in the bright summer even
ings, on the Forest reed, as it 17as call
ed, on their prancing horses, ho bond
ing fondly above her, whispering words
of love and tenderness, and she listen
ing to them with a flush on her cheek
and a smile on her lip. I remember
ono evening that I 'stood watching
them as they rode down from the Wild
Glen, bathed in the golden bolo that
the gorgeous fires of sunset threw up
on the scene, while the summer Fa-
1 V.;, -...,...E. 1.1 fT. eli -6,; 4 i , •

phyrs, loaded with the perfume of wild
flowers, blow back her massive hair
from her queenly brow, until the scene
seemed to mo celestial, and she an in
habitant of celestial regions. Just then
she caught sight of me, as I looked at
her almost entranced, and spoke some
thing in a low tone to her companion.
What it was I never know; but they
both looked at me an instant, and then
the air rang with their laughter, and I
heard him say somothing'about pre
sumption and impudence, and I guess
ed what it was. It was hard to be
thus tortured simply for no other rea
son than because I had a heart, and
could not control its impulses, and
when I look back upon that time it
seems to me like some terrible dream.
Misfortunes, they say, never come
singly, and they always come, too,
when we least expect them. My moth
er suddenly sickened and died, and I
was thus left alone, a wretched out
cast on the earth. As I stood over
her grave, it seemed to me that I had
buried every hope. I determined to
leave that spot where I had seen so
much misery. I cared very little
where I went. Anywhere, far away
from there. General Linton paid me
what little he owed me, and I struck
out for the west. Railroads and steam
boats were'nothalf as numerous then
as they are now, and oven if they bad
been, I was too poor to avail myself of
their advantages. I walked therefore,
many a weary mile, until after many
weary days of travel I found myselfat
the outskirts of a growing city: Here
I stopped, because I thought I had
gone tar enough, and for the best of all
reasons, because my money had given
out. I had to do something. A large
mansion with beautiful grounds stood
before mo. I applied to the owner for
labor. He said he was very much in
need of a gardener, but did not like to
employ mo without references. After
hesitating for a while however, he con
cluded to engage me for a month, and
if ho liked me ho would then engage
me permanently, he said. I found out
in a short time that ho was a lawyer
of extensive practice, immensely weal
thy, and lived at his ease. I followed
out the rule I had adopted through
life, to be honest and industrious under
all circumstances, and at the end of
the month my employer, whose name
was Parker, sent for me. He was sit
ting at a table in his library, writing,
and lie had sent for ma, ho said to pay
me my monthly wages. He then sur
prised me by asking;me if I could rend
and write. I told him that I could
Thanks to indefatigable energy and
perseverance, at the little cabin on
General Linton's farm, during the long
winter evenings wheti the labors of the
day were over, I had acquired the ru
diments of a first-rate _English educa
tion. My employer then told me that
during the past month he had observed
me•elosely, and that ho believed me to
be an honest man. "I will tell you
something more," said ho, "that I have
discovered. You are a young man of
extraordinary intelligence. Garden
ing is not your proper avocation. I
am doil , nu extensive practice at the
law, and I need some ono to stay in
my office. I know of no one who is
better suited than you. With your
application and industry, within ono
year from now you may be admitted
to the bar. You must consent to be
come my student."
I didn't know exactly- why it was.
but suddenly Judge Parker and the
table seemed to boom° inverted, and
the room went whirling round and
round, and then wo all seemed flying
off through the air like Aladdin's cas
tle, and the next thing I knew I was
sobbing with my head upon the table.
le didn't say anything until I had
told him all. What a hard time I had
through life, and how this had been the
only light that had ever shone on my
dark pathway. Tears sprang into the
old man's eyes as I told him '
said I must never despair, and he was
certain I would corne out victorious.
I went into Judge Parker's office,
and I studied hard, and at the end of
the year, as he predicted, I obtained

HOME AFTER BUSINESS HOURS —The
road along which the man of business
travels in the pursuit of competence or
wealth, is not a macadamized one, nor
does it ordinarily load through pleas
ant scenes and by well-springs of de
light. On the contrary, it is a rough
and rugged path, beset with "wait 11-
bit" thorns, and full of pit-falls, which
can only be avoided by the watchful
care of circumstances. After every
day's journey over this worse than
rough turnpike road, the wayfarer
needs something more thhn rest; ho
requires solace, and he deserves it.—
He is weary of the dull prose of life,
and athirst for the poetry. Happy is
the business man who can find that
solace and that poetry at home.
Warm greetings from loving hearts,
fond glances from bright oyes, and
welcome shouts of children, the many
thousand little arrangements for com
fort and enjoyment that silently tell of
thoughtful and expectant love, the
gentle ministration that disencumber
us into an old and easy seat before we
aro aware of it; these, and like tokens
of affection and sympathy, constitute
the poetry which reconciles us to the
prose of life. Think of this, ye wives
and-daughters of business - men ! Think
of the toils, thO anxieties the mortifi
cation that fathers undergo to secure
for you comfortable homes, and com
pensate them for their trials by mak
ing them happy by their own fireside.
The sober and industrious man's home
should be made' a happy one.
