And joy beam'd from :hine eye.
The place is sadly changed, Mary,
The day is bright as then,
The snow hath melted from our light,
The roads are tnud again.
And I miss the sweet song from thy lips,
Thy smiles so clear ond bright,
Your raven loeks of deepest hue,
Thine eye. of liquid light.
I'm very lonely now, Mary,

A GOOD APOLOGY.
They had a bull down at the Waverly

remarkable expressions. Among other
transpirations, the following instance o a

I havo never been able to nt-i crtiiin the

I within a inilo of micIi tither in Illinois for
ii - -,w , Hiiv4 ii.Mii turn aruniii-
tance, there had been a mutual feeling of
dislike between the two fnmilies,
One evening Mr. Drake, the rider, was.
returning home, with his "pocket full of
rocka" from Chieoga, wither he had been
to dispose of a load of grain. .Sum Iltir
ston was with him on the WHgon, and as
they approached the grove which inter
vened between them und Mr. Drake's
house, he observed to his companion :
"What a beuutiful shot Col. Crickley's
old'roun is. over yonder T"
llang it!" muttered old Drake, "to it
Tho horse was standing under dome
trees ubout twelve rods from the road.
Involuntarily, Drake stopped bis team.
He glunced furtively Around, then with a
(itteer smile the old hunter took up his ri
ll e from the bottom of the wagon, and
raising il to bis hhoulder, drew u sight on
the Colonel's horse.
"Beautiful!" muttered Drake, lowering
his villa with the air of a man resisting a
powerful temptation, "I could drop old
J loan so easy !"
"Shoot!" Migj-csted Sam BarsUm, who
loved fun in any shape.
".No no 'twouldn't do," said the old
hunter, glancing cautiously uround hima
gaiu. '1 won't tell," said Sum.
'Well, I won't shoot this time, any way,
lei! or no tell. The horse is too nigh. If
he was fifty rods off instead of twelve, so
thi't there'd be a bare possibility of mis
taking him fos a deer, I'd let fly. As it is,
I'll give the Colonel live dollars for a shot."
At that moment the Colonel himself
stepped from a big oak, nut half a dozen
paces distant, and stood before Mr. Drake.
"Well, why don't shoot 7"
The old man stunured out tome wordo
"That's j ou, Colonel ! I I was temt
ed to, I declare! And as I said; I'll give
you n 'V for one pull."
"Say an 'X' and it's a bargin !"
Drake fi It of his rifle, ond looked at the
"How much is the hoi so worth?" lie
muttered in Sum's ear.
' About fiftv dollars."
"Gad. Colonel, I'll do it. So here's
your 'X !"
Tho Colonel took and pocketed the
monev, muttering, "hangod if I thought
fym'i'd take me up."
With a high glee tne old hunter put a
fresh cap on his rifle, stood up in bis wag
on, and drew a close sight at old Roan.
Sam Barston chuckled. The Colonel put
his bunds before his face and chuckled
"Crack!" went the rifle. Tho hunter
tore out a horrid oath, which I will not
repeat. Sam was astonished. TheColonel
laughed. Old Roan never stirred.
Drake stared at his rifle with a face as
black as Othello's
"What's the matter with jou, hey?
Fust time you evcrsarved tnesucha trick,
And Drako loaded the piece with great
indignation and wrath.
"People said you'd lost your knack o
shooting," observed the Colonel, in a cut
ting tone of sutire.
"Who said so? It's a lie!" thundvred
Drake. "I can shoot "
"A horse at ten rods! hal ha!"
Drake was livid.
"Look here, Colonel, I can't stand
that !" ho began.
"Xever mind, the horse can," sneered
the Colonel. "I'll risk you."
Grinding hit teeth, Drake produced an
other ten dollar bill.
"Here," he growled, ,'I'm bound to have
another shot, any way."
"Crack away," said the Colonel, pock
eting the note.
Drake did crack away with deadly
aim, too but the horse did not mind the
bullet in the least. To the rage and un
utterable astonishment of the hunter, old
Roan looked him right in the face, w if he
rather liked the fun.
"Drake" cried Sam, "you're drunk !
A horse at a dozen rods oh, my eye I"
"Just shut your mouth, or I'll shoot
you !" thundered the excited Drako.
"The bullet was hollow, I'll gvrtar.
The man lies that says I can't shoot.
Last week I cut ofTa goose's) head at fifty
rods, and I can do it again. Colonel, you
can laugh, but I'll bet now, thirty dolbus,
1 can bring down old Roan at ono shot."
The wager was readily accepted. The
stakes were placed in Sam's hands. Ela
ted with the idea of winning back his two
tens, ond making a ten into the bargin,
Drako carefully selected a perfect ball, e-
ven buckskin patch, and loaded the rifle,
It was now nearly dark, but tho old
hunter boosted of being ablo to shoot a bat
on the wing by starlight, and without hes
itation he drew clear sight on old Roan's
A minuto later Drake was driving
through tho grove, the most enrased, the
mott desperate of men. His rille, inno
cent of ire, lay with broken stock in tho
bottom of the wagon. Sam Barston wits
too much frightened to lauch. Meon-

How a Church wa i Cured of Fremont
Tho Hartford Times relutes the follow,
A congregational Church in a neighbor
ing State got so enlisted in the Pre
sidential contest, for Fremont and Jessie,
that little nttention was given to religious
questions. Tho minister was constantly
preaching, preying and exhorting upon
political issues, and the deacons and lay
men followed suit at the. prayer and con
ference meetings. Finally, a worthy old
farmer, one of the best and staunchest
members of the church, ond a firm and
undeviatiting democrat, waa called upon
to offer prayer.
"O Lord, (said he.) uphold the Demo
cratic party which has received thy pro
tectin support ever since the great Jef
fersonian struggle. Continue to bless that
party which ha.., under thy protection and

the present state of things cannot lust. If

of the time in behalf of the Democratic
party, so that there may be fair discussion
within these walls. Amen."
This was a stumper. It wos the first
prayer ever publicly offered in that church
for the success of the Democratic party
and its nominees, though hundreds of
prayers ond exhortations had been made
against that party. When the old man
had finished there was silence for half art
hour, ond the meeting then adjourned.
And thus ended the political preaching
in that church. From that time forward
the minister attended to his gospel du
ties, and left all political questions to be
settled by the people outside of the
church. Again the society prospered.and
there was a better fooling among its mem
bers more Christian charity more bro

answered in mose respects than one.
