Oh! ninny a heart was enptured there.
Andhcr merry nngh, O, 'twas joy to hear
For it toeniod like tho revel of angoU fair,
And to bask in tho liht of her runny sinilo
Wa to dwell in olysiura ficlils the while,

And glow with 6uch ardor, and eem so truo

For Xell was a flirt, if tho truth must be tld,
And with eyes o burning, her heart was cold.
She was conscious and proud of her magic power
And sho watched and waited tho triumph hour.

And laid on her altar their vestal flame.
And the true (ini the false, as each went his way
Felt he had won a heart that day.
Hut little ho thought, though ho kncir ere lon
That hir heart triisu li'jhi and her love nnitmirj.
That the next who should ivoo, would hear the
In the low sueet tones he had hoard but now.
Thus moment by moment, hour by hour,

Till years had inssei, am! the vision flown,
And youth, nn 1 boauty, and ho,o, wers g n ;
And no true heart won no strong arm hers
From nil the crowd of her wor.shirers.

"Men are never so awkward, never so
t.ngneeful, never so di-agreeabln as when
they are making love. A friend is a luxu
ry, a husband ditto, I supposo ; but that
intermittent class of human brings de
nominated lovers are miserable bores. It
docs very well for women to blush nnd
look flustered now nnd then when occa
sions mako it desirable ; but to see a man
with his face ns red as a ripe cherry, and
a real parcel of strong-mindedness, self
reliance, and m.isulino dignity, dono up
in broadcloth and starched linen, quak
ing from tha top of his shirt collar, his
mouth nwry, and Ins tongo twisted into
?onvulnions, in tho vain attempt to say
..something sweet O gracious '."
So said saucy Sophie Lynn aloud to her
self, as she snt swinging backward and
forward pefore the window, half bmiedan
the cushions of a luxuriant armchair; and
playing with a delicate ivory fan which
ly upon her Isp.
"It also seems so strange, not to say
"?some," she continued, with a running
isical laugh, "after ono ha waltod and

entered to announce Mr.' Harry Ainslee,
she was back to her old seat hv tho win.

apparently as unconcerned nnd listless as
though that name had not sent a rjuicker

,vas nothing wonderful.) were in' the
same phice where Capt. Morris' and Dr.
Wilkins' hnd been befro them.
"Tho first man I ever heard say such
tilings without making a fool of himself,"
muttered Sophie, emphatically, from be
hind her fan. ns sho sat blushing and evi
dently gratified, yet without deigning any
reply to the allnnt, straightforward
speech in which her lover had risked his
.ill of h "pe.
"He ough t to do penance for Iho pretty
way in which ho uses his tongue. He's
altogether too calm to suit me."" And So

forget what she had been saying? "I
wonder if I could snore the way old undo
.lones used to in church ?" she soliloquiz
ed, "ami wouldn't it be fun nnd wouldn't
it plnrue Harry if ho thought I had heen
asleep hile he was talking?"
Sophie's blue eyes dan red with suppress
ed merriment ns she gave two or threo
breathings and followed them up with a
nnal explosion worthy of an orthodox
deacon. It was well done theatrically
done nnd poor Harry sprang bolt upright
surprised, mortified, chagrined. Human
nature could stand it no longer, mid So-
phie gnvo vent to. her mirth in a burst of
"V.n.ll lilt In tvllfli

by Iho arm with a grip that made her
scream, "vou deserve a shaking for your

added erftvelv :
"Will you never have dono tormenting
mo ? If yon love mo can you not be gen
erous enough to tell mo so ; nnd if you do
not. nm I not worthy of n candid refusal."
Words sprang to Sophie's lips thnt
would have done credit to her womanly
nature, for the whole d?pths of her being
were stirred nnd drawn towards him as
they nevr before had been towards nny

if thnt is the reason why you treat me so

Sophie's h end was averted, and a bus
picious moisture glistened in her eyes ns
Hairy ceased speaking. Ah! why is it
that wo sometimes hold our highest hap
piness so lightly carrying it carelessly
in our hands as though it were but dross,
staking it all upon an idle onpriee?
When she turned her countenance, to
wards him ngain, the snme mock ng light
was in her eyes, tho same coquettish smile'

Swearing. I think a nun that STcars
is liko a man that fires a gun in the street
without seeing where the charge is going
to strike. When a person uses profane
language ho does not know what or whom
it is going to injure. It is a habit which
comes upon a man gradually, but grows
rapidly. It demoralises a man'sconscienea
wounds his honor, injures his own soul,
and hurts the feelings of others. It is
profitable in nothing, and mischievous in
almost everything I scarcely know of
anything for which there is so little ex
cuse. If you say that you indulge in it
only when you are ar.gry, I reply that it is
worse Ihrn than at Buy other time.

Kind 'Words. They never blister the
tonguo or lips. And we have never heard
of one mental trouble arising from this
quarter. Though they do not cost mush,
yet they accomplish much. They help
one's good-nature and good will. Soft
words soften our own soul. Angry words
are fuel to the llama of wrath, ami mako
tho blnzo more fierce. Kind words make
other people good-natured. Cold words
freeze people, and hot words scorch them,
and bitter words mako them bitter, and
wrathful words mako them wrathful.
There is such a rush of other kinds of
words in our days, that it seems desirable
to give kind words n chance among them.
Thero are vain words, and idle words, und

A Little Girl Blown Into a Trie. At
Fnrn.ington, Iowa, hist Sunday, a littlo
girl four years old, was carried by a sud
den gust of wind and lodged in a cherry
tree, a few rods distant, her clothes hav
ing caught in the branches of the tree,
where she rcmainod unhurt. The anx
ious father ran to and fro, seeking her,
when the littlo innocent, Gripping ivih
rnin, peeped through the branches of the
cherry tree, exclaiming "I'm here, Ja!"
B55u"I can't boar children," said Miss
Prim disdainfully.
Mrs. Partington looked ovor her spec

Kon;.z Sknti mknts. This is nn ngrceablo
world lifter nil. If wo would only brirg
ourselves to look nt the subjects that sur
round us in their truo light, we should seo
beauty where we beheld deformity, nnd
listen to harmony w hero ive heard noth
ing but discord. To be sure, thero is a
great deal of vexation and nnxity to meet ;
we cannot suil on a summer const forever ;
yet if we p.eserve a calm eye nnd' steady
hand wo can so trim our sails and manage
our helm, as to avoid tho quicksands, nnd
weather the storms that threaten ship
wreck. We nro members ofone family; we
nre traveling thesame rond, nnd shall arrive
nt tho same goal. Wo breathe the srmo
nir. nro ulject to the same beauty , mid.
shall lie down upon tho bosom of our com
mon mother. It is unbecoming then that
brother shoud haiebrothcr; it is not proper
that friend should deceive friend; it is not
right that neighbor should deceive neigh-,
bor. 'We pity that man who can harbor
enmity against his fellow, ho fonts half th
enjoyment of lite; ho embitters his own
existence. Los us tear from your eyes tho
colored medium that invests every object,
with the green hue of jealousy unci suspi
cion; turn n deaf ear tosoaudal ; breathe a
spirit of charity from your hearts; let tho
rich gushing of human kindnoss swell ux
as a fountain, so that the "golden nge"
will become no fiction, nnd tho Islands of
the blessed bloom in more than "Ilyperw
on beauty."

Keen Satice. At a ball one evening, it
plain country gentleman had engaged iw
pretty coquette for the next dunce, but a.
gallant captain coming along persuaded
tho lady to ubandon her previous engage-,
nient in favor of himself. Tho plain yco-.
man, overhearing all that had passed.,
with a rigid indifference moved toward a
curd table nd sat down to play a game of
whist. The captain, in a few minutes nf
torwnrd,. stepped up to the lady to excuse
himself, as he was engaged to unoiher ho
had forgotten, Tho coquette, much cha
grined, -approached the whist table, in,
hopes to secure her first partner, nnd said ;
''I believe Mr. It., it is timo to take our
positions." The old-fash ior.ed suitor, in
the net of dividing a pack for the next
dealer, courteously replied, "No, madam,
