Not tbrever we are chastened
By the might of sorrow's hand,
Not forever pass we sighing
Through the stranger's weeping land,
There shall come a time of gladness,
When the heart may e'en forget,
In the melody of pleasure,
All the ills that grieve it yet.
Not forever in the valley,
With the yawning gulf below,
Not forever 'mid the briars
Zion's pilgrim band shall got
They shall tread with cheerful footsteps
On the pleasant sunny kills!
They shall march with mirth and music,
While their song the sweet air fills.
Not forever shall the darkness
Of the midnight's lonely hour,
Overwhelm the timid spirit
With the terrors of its power.
There shall come the light of morning
To the weary, waiting heart,
And, amid the joy of daybreak,
Tears and sorrow shall depart.
Not forever have they left us,
Those for whom we shed our teirs?
Not forever shall our mourning
Darken long and weary years.
There shall be a joyous meeting

In the land of evermore.

And forever is the darkness

Still be kuowu no more tior looked for

THE DISGUISED DAMSEL
" Charles! Charles! you won't forget to
meet my Aunt Stephanie at the depot, at
Mrs. Early had followed her tall broth
er-in-law to the front door steps, with the
fresh wind blowing her bright air about
her face, and a scarlet Shetland shawl
drawn picturesquely round her delicate
shoulders— a pretty woman, with son*
thing of matronly dignity subduing the
arch mischief that sparkled in her ens.
Mr. Charles Early was a staiwar
handsome young man, .with blue mast •
light brown hair, shadowing a fafr, o• 11,
forehead. It was a pleasant face to 1' k
into, with nothing of irresolution or effem
inacy about it, and consequently Charles
Early had many friends,—aye, and loyal
lie turned round at the sound of his
sister-in-law's voice. Josephine was one
of his most useful and constant allies.
"No, I'll not forget, Josephine, but I'm
sorry her godfathers and godmothers in
baptism gave her the name of Stephanie:"
"Because I know a Stephanie; the pret
tiest fairy you ever saw. It was when we
were all at Woodgrove. Beach, last month
—and—if you'll promise not to tell lay
sober brother Bob, I'll confide to you, a
momentous secret, Josephine. Havel I
your pledge of secrecy?"
" I promise."
" Well, then, I lost my heart to that,
beautiful little Stephanie, with her flossy
yellow curls, and her rose-mouth with its
tiny pearls of teeth, and her pink and
white complexion, Just like your great
oleander in the drawing room."
" Did you propose to her, Mingle?"
questioned his sisterin-law, with sat the
eager earnestness of a woman's .. . .
"Not just then, but—another Seelig.
Josephine—l proposed by letter, darbethre
"And you have received no answer?"
"Not yet; I suppose it is too soon, but
I'm on thorns and nettles until one does
reach me. Josephine, if alas don't have
me, I'll drown myself:l)r . . - i ..,
"No, Charles, you won't; • what abd.
"Then I'll do worst; " VII subsid nto
a cross-grained, gdgetty old ~_haelngor,
grumbling incessantly as everYthingrnd
everybody, for all the rest of my na ral
liib; just see if I don't."
"Charles, you're a,moosel”
"So are all young men who have the
misfortune be, in love. It's their normal
condition. What thus ,do you say the
train arrives? Twelve? , I shall hate to
get a carriage, I suppose, to trans the
rheumatic old lady here, withou any
breakage of bones. Does she walk h a
;old -headed cane?"
"Yes, and she wears a wig and spesta-•
dies, and talks through her nose, and takes
snuff from a tortoise-shell box!"
“Angels and ministers of grace:defend
us! Josephine, how did you ever untie to
have such an aunt? and how did e
happen to be Stephanie, instead . alt
or Tyyphosa ?
"We used to call her Aunt Pent' for
shortl” said Mrs. Early, mischiev,uily,
and her brother-in-law Ftrode don the
street, whistling (but not for lack of
thought) as he. went.
"I. wish Aunt Fetty war in the Red
Sea," he thouwht, a little vindictively,
"but I suppose I must oblige Josephine."
So, at twelve o'clock precisely, Mr.
Charles Early stood on the platform, at
the 11. Depot, watching the long train, as
it slowly glided in like a Lire throa ted.
"There comes your authlilttilit old
hag, Charlie,l , said Guy St. Everil, With
a' laugh, as a brisk, but somewhat bent
figure, wrapped from head to foot in a
voluminous cloak of snuff-colored bomba

same, stepped out of one of the last cars,
by the aid ofan iron-headed cane. Her
bonnet, curiously bent and crumpled,
barely covereda huge frilled cap; she wore
a bright brown wig, set a little away over
her forehead, and massive green specta
cles sat astride of her nose, while brown
cotton gloves adorned her hands, and a
gram umbrella, carried under the arm,
threatened with its ferule, the eyes of who
soever was rash enough to crowd her
movements in the rear.
" Aunt Fent% self, as I live and
breaths!" echoed Bruce Montmartin.—
" Charlie, if I were you, Pd run for it. )1
"Drop itcr in the gutter and make off

exquisite, superciliously stroking down
But Charles Early had too many gen
tlemanly instincts to pay any heed to the
waggish hints of his companions. He
stepped forward, chivalrously.
Allow me to carry your basket for
you, ma'am. lam the brothet-in-law of
your Wpm, Mrs. Early.
" Oh, you be, ch?" creaked a feeb
voice, from under the cap 'frills. " Well,
you may take my umberil, and my basket,
and WW a paper o' gingerbread I fAched

feller called 'em, if I remember rightly."
"It's all right, ma'am, I assure you,"
said Mr. Early. Step into the carriage; I
will see that your things are brought here
"What be them fellers laughin' at?"
demanded Aunt Feny, stopping short,
with one foot on the carriage step, and

A suppressed laugh here ran through
the little crowd gathered on the platform.
"Do not let their folly annoy you,
ma'am, said Early, pleasantly. Let me
assist you into the carriage.
" St. Evert!, stand back," said Early,
sternly, "If you have no reverence for old
age or womanhood, I will teach you to
respect my right hand. This lady is under
my protection, you will please remember."
Evoillattreated somewhat dis
comfited, upon Ms companion's toes, and
the old lady climbed into the carriage.
"Young man," she began, when the
umbrella, lunch-paper, basket and bottle
were all safely stowed away and they were
rolling rapidly over the city streets, ou , -
ve got a deal of moral courage. 'Tain't
every city sprig would be as polite to an
old ereetur as you've been, with all them
noisy feklers pokin' fun at you."
Our hero was somewhat embarrassed at
this plainly spoken compliment.
"I hope, madam," he said, "I shall
never be found lacking iu the essential
qualities of a gentleman, in whatever cir
cuwatances I may be placed."
The antique dame nodded her cap-frills,
and held silently on to her umbrella,

"Oonfound Aunt Stephanie," thought
Mi. Early, advancing drowsily towards
the front room, . where, in an arti fi cial twi
light prodriceby satin curtains and vene

Suddenly Josephine drew back the shad

and crooked old woman, stood a lovely
girl of eighteen, with deep blue eyes and
golden curls, set off by a white muslin
dress, with an abundance of floating blue
ribbon nicely . looped and knotted about it.

laughing and blushing. "At all events,
Charlie, I like you ten thousand times

rs ADVICE TO THE G
Girls, you want to get married, of
you? Ali, what a natural thing it is for
you young ladies to have such a hankering
for the sterner sax? It is a weakness that
woman has, and for this reason she is
esillai,thentsaker seal Well, if you want
to get Married, don't, for conscience sake,
act like fools about it. Don't go into a fit
every time you see a hat and a pair of
whiskers. Don't get the idea into your
heads that you must put yourselves into
the way of every young man in the neigh
borhood, in order to attract notice; for if
you don't run after them they will run
after you. Mark that!
A husband hunter is the most detestable
of all young ladies. She is full of starch
and puckers, she puts on so ninny false
airs, and she is so nice, that she appears
ridiculous in the eyes of every decent per
son. She may generally be found at church
or meeting, coming in, of course, about
the last one, always at social parties, and
invariably takes the front seat at concerts.
She tries to be the belle of the place, and
thinks she is. Poor girl! You are fitting
yourself for an old maid, just as sure as
the Sabbath comes on Sunday. Men will
flirt with you, simply because tli.y love to
do it; but they have no more idea of
making you a wife than they have of c un
inittin„e• suicide. If I were a youivg man
I would have no more to do with such
fancy women than I would with a viper.
Now, girls, let Nelly give you a piece of
her advice, and she knows from experience
that if you practice it you will gain the
reputation of being wooly girls, and stead
a air eliatwe of getting respectable hus
bands. It is all well enough to finger
the piano, etc., but don't neglect to let
grandmanuna or mother teach you how to
make pies and puddings, and get a meal
of victuals good enough for a king. No
part of a housekeeper's duties should be
neglected; if you do not marry a wealthy
husband you will need to know how to do
such work, and if you do it will be no dis
advantage to you to know how to instruct
a servant girl to do these things as you
would have them done.
In the next place, don't pretend to be
what you are not. Affectation hallo most
despicable of "accomplishments," and will
only cause sensible people to laugh at you.
No one but a ibol will be caught by affec
tation; it has a transparent skin, easily to
be seen - through. Dress a plain, but neatly.
Remember that nothing gives a girl so
modest, becoming, and lovely an appear
aece a neat andi plain dress. All the
mummery and tinsel work of the dress
maker and milliner are unnecessary. If
you are really handsome, they do not add
to your beauty one particle, if you arc
homely, they only mice you look worse.
Men don't court your ftce and jewelry,
taut your own dear selves.
Finger rings and folderols May do to
look at, but they add nothing to the value
of a wife—all young men may know that.
If you know how to talk, do it naturally,
and not be so distressingly polite as to
spoil all yousay. If your hair is straight,
don't put on the curling tongs to make
believe it -is tteta - ,If your neck is dark,
wear a face collik but don't be so foolish
as to daub on paint, thinking that people
are so blind as not to see it; and it your
cheeks aro not rosy, don't apply pink
saucers, for the deception will ba detected,
and you will be laughed at.
Finally, girls, listen to the counsel of
your mothers, and ask their advice in
everything. Think less of fashion than
you do of home duties, less of romances
than you do of the realities of life; and
instead of trying to catch beaux, strve to
make yourself worth bring caught by
