The hills were yelled In purple spirt,
The treei act as a gone of gold,
And far away as eye could n•ach
The still green-prattle onward rolled.
The sky was blue as blue could be;
The cotton fields were white as snow;
On, what a trance of Joy had we •
In autumns long agol
Two happy children on a tail.
And seeing In the sunset clouds'
Ilaroun's enrhanted city loom
•Mid seas all white with fairy shrouds,
We gazed till all the golden depths
Held Bagdad•s splendid pomp and glow;
The scents of Samarcatid embalm
To autumns long ago. '
We were, so earnest as we planned
Sual lives as never conk' have been—.
Lives like some gorgeous phantasy
With words of loco dropped In between -
I've had as foolish plans slice then.
Yet wanting all the warn lb and glow
That made life an enchanted dreaiii
In autumns bang ago.
Oh, could I see those same eyes,
Or wave again the magic wand
That set :Maori, the stt•.set skies,.
The palaces of fairyland,
We'd watt once more on scented grass.
And feel the cool Gulf breezes blow,
Lcri'e I half Ilfe's.glory died with thee,'
One autumn long ago. :
Feb. 14. 1878:
O young brave llitart that trod atone
The wondrous read so dim and elid
How did thy small feet end their way
. To that fair land with streets of gold?
For, fat beyond the sunset cl - Onds,
And far to3yond all iandal know,
Thy sweet soul pa‘spd, and left mo harp.
One autumn long ago.
, Someday I shall teethed of life,
And, full of rest from bead to feet.
Shall fall to sleep, and wait for thee
To lead me up the golden street.
Oh, Then, beloved. our hopes and drqms
Shall all to sweet comyeetion grow,
we shall link eternal joys
With autumns long ago.
- "Pon't talk about ny in t ore,m;
dear; it can't be. Yo and Fred
hid best set to work to rget each
oilier. God knows, lam s rry- .for
your disappointment, but,.aftt. all it
isn't to be wondered at that yo cun
cle Elliot should have forined high
vic*s for his son and heir. Take niv
advice and never let him know that it
s you whom Fred would have eho
sen ;- he is a hard, stern man, and :it
might make Vim your enemy. When
child alone and almost penniless in
the wide . world."
• The invalid gentleman put oilt[it
delicate hand and stroked the sunny
hair of his - pretty daughter, as she i
knelt beside him; a long and bitter
sigh broke from -his lips.
"As to your marrying without his'
consent, as Fred proposed the other
day, - that is quite out pf the question.
Fred is dependent, upon his lather, of
course, and as when I die—it won't
- be long, Amy, I, feel worse than ever
to-day—when I die my annuity dies
with me, there will 'be nothing for
you., And Fred has never been
taught to-do one thing that could'
support himself, much less a wife and
family. No, no ; if my brother-i s n-,
law had -chosen I would have given
you to your cousin glatily,thougli he
is rather a wild fellow, I fear ; but
without his consent it would be mad-1
Mr. Rivers sank back in his inva-'
lid's chair, overcome. by the exertion
of so long a speech, and Amy, seeing
his condition, forbore to urge , hito
further; and indeed, as she shortly
afterwards remarked to Fred, what
,was there to be gained by so doing?
'•Poor papa can't help us.' If lie
could he would, very gladly. It woiild
I ease him that I should be Your
wi e. But that's hopeless,"—weep
ing ilently—" since uncle has set his
heart upon another daughter-in-law.
You d dn't tell him it was I you
loved, dig you, Fred ?" . • i
"He did- 't give me a chance. He
is such an rbitrary fellow, is My
father! The ett fellow in' the world
you icnow,' - at he rt, hut wants to have
everything his wn -*ay. ' Don't
talk to me of an ther woman, sir,'
says . he. ' You'll fifty the .girl I I
choose foi), you, or Icut you tiff
with a shilling! Lea the room,
and don't come into - • presence
again until you are prepare I to obey
me.' That was yesterday, • and -I
haven't:troubled him - since." .
" And what will you do , ow,
Fred ? " •
", I'll tell you, my darling; Ilia e
a plan that will put an end to all ou -
troubles and my father's opposition
at the same time. 4 -I can't obey him,
Amy ; he has no right, to embitter-all
my:life, and yotirs.ltoo, for the grati
fication of his own ambition. ° We
have loved each other from our child
hood why didn't he forsee all this,
and not throw us so much together,
if nothing was to come of it ? And
he is fond of you too, I firmly :be
lieve that if we were once' marrikd,
so that it couldn't be helped,' he'd
pardon us and make the best of it. I
propose that we' get married private
ly at once—yes, this very day."
Amy didn't answer a'word. - She
looked at him with lovely, half fright
ened eyes, while lie poured forth a
perfectly bewildering torrent of,.rea
' sons, arguments, persuasions and en
treaties. ~ ,
"But my father?-" she said at last
when he gave her, a chance to speak'.
"He would never consent to such a
thing:" :
"We won't ask him,,darling; we
won't tell a single soul. Why worry
your sick father? We know'he wish
ed us to - be man and wife. As .o my
father, be is a most philosophical in-,
.dividual, and, will propably apply his''
favorite maxim to our case—' what,
can't be 'cured must be endured.l !
You Cannot think it right. that II
should obey him by making that oldi
maid, Miss Staines my wife, while
my whole heart is "_ . -
. She Aid not think so,,nor was it inl
nature that she should, poor child.
. " No, it can't be right for you to
do,that,Fred," she said timidly.
--" Of course not. My father is rich
enough ; why is' he so •avericiima?
The course I have suggested will be
_ _

• best for us all—father included. You
I mill marry me to-day, my: darling,
Won't you "
She loved him dearly. She had
loved him all her life, and to think of
- i
him as the husband •of- another was
more than she could bear. Her feio
faint objections were easily overruled,
and,as Fred had • come prepared to
hat 4 his own way, and had made all
the necessary preparations, together
they repaired to a quiet country-1
place close athand, and there took.,
the , vows that bound them to each
outer'. till death doth part.'" - • .
It was evening when. Amy reached'
her home, after an absence of about,
eight hours—a most unusual length
, of time for - her to remain away from
i her sick father. 'Her • anxieties were
all for , him now.
• " How he will wonder what has
detained me,! I shall have to tell him
gall, Fred, if_ he questions me."'
' Fred wasAuite willing. • .
_ "Just as you th ink best," said he,.
"Only tell_ him to keep it secret ; let
me be thet . one. to: tell my •father.
Good .'night; prescious . little wife,
since you Won't let- the come in with
you." , . , i
He kissed. -her and hut her out of
. .
the earringti and drove away, leaving
her standink'nt the ' , door, looking af
ter him for a tnodiont, the . happiest
little woman in the world, in her own
estimation4n spite of her present
anxiety. - Then She turned and 'tug,
the bell. The door was opened has
tily. A familiar face looked out upon
her, White and scared. 'lt.. wasiher
landlady. ; -
0 Oh, Miss Amy,,is it you at' last?
Where have you been.? We've been I
sending all over for 3ou I YOur poor
father—" - - 1
The woman stopped and hesitated.. ?
Amy had entered and' stood looking
in her faegber tisirt features blanched
with sudden terror.
• " Yes, yes--my father ? • What of
- him ? Is he worse ?"-
"lie is—dead, Miss."
_ With a scream of horror the poor
girl felt fainting—wedded and orph
aned almost in the self-Same-h -ur.
He had died in his chair, almost'
Without skstruggle. An invalid this
long, long time, she had been . told
that he might go suddenly, but she
had never realized it in the least.
And now that the summons should
come during . her absence, that she
should 'have had no parting kiss, no
'farewell word •of .blessingoh! it .
made that. sad bereavemeat - doubly
-hard to hear.
Her uncle Elliott was very, 'very
ind. Ile 'attended in person to all
tlle necessary ' arrangements, and
whek theAuneral was over, took her
to his . own home.

Amy even in spite of her grief. Fred
was so ardent, so devoted, and she
loved him so. No one interfered
with, o.r took any particular notice
of their proceedings—they were coti
.sins, and had been life-long fritinds
and playfellows;, their mutual plea
sure in each other's company Ras
natural. None saw anything strange
in it in the least.. .
But this could not last. Ve'rys - oon.
Mr. Elliot' ruiurned to the attack,
demanding that his. son should
. :pro
pose to Miss Staines immediately.
Fred refused. They were alone and
angry Words ran high netween Ahern.
" What you desire is impossible
now," cried Fred—" imposSible! The
law allows a man but one wife it a
time, and I have one already." .
Ik arose as he spoke those deci
sive words, and looked his • father
resolutely in the face. - Mi t Elliot
rose' too, - pale with fury.., -
"Is this a jest ?" ,he 'demanded,
hoarsely. - ' •
" No jest,"-answered Fred. respect
fully; but t firmly, although he trem
bled too; " I have been married now
two months. My wife-1 hope you
will not feel so bitterly, father, when
you learn that my wife is-2'
" Silence!" His father's voice,
interrupting him, was so hoarse and
strained, so changed with deep and
violent emotion, that . he started at
the sound. "I refuse to hear her
name. I-refuse to recognize her ex
lsi"tence. Never shall her - foot cross

ffer a son. Leave this house, air!.
leav _at once and fiarever !" ' -
Fre walked quietly -tO the door;
reachin it he•tur . netl and addressed
his fathe :
" Hear . e but a few words,sir.
You have cuscill If hear my wife's'
name; so: be r . .1 lee no reason to
force the in mation upon you.:
Some day you mc desire to learn it.
'1 would have obey A all your reason-
able commands, ashave ever done,
4\ l
but this matter invo ved the happi
ness of two lives,' and have taken 1
it into my own bands. I shall -go
forth into the wOrlsl
,an earn my .
own bread, 'as a. man shoo 1. Ido
not reproach you that' :you, aving
reared me in 'idleness and in t ke ex
pectation of : being your heir, h.ave'
now turned me . adritt upon the world;
but some day perhaps your own-coai
science may do sl. At such a, time ,
you Will be glad to know that Iha e
still a ' portion of my last quartet is

dred dollars. It: is. not much . to :

please God. I tell you this in
spirit of defiance, but for comfort
'hereafter. Farewell, sir. Take care
of uiy cousin Amy, 3nd-04 _bless
you, sir." ' .
And' he waS gone—gone to break
the news to Amy, and to entreat her
to keep their; secret yet awhile.
"He has no suspicion, and I- am
sure that_ to discoier now that you
—Sou to whom he hisS been so kind
—have • also sinned, against him;
would make the blow still harder film
him to bear: 11. mai n -with him, and .
comfort him, and gain a- place in his
heart ;'who knows but you may yet
win him to forgive us. _And let me

to make a hon 4 for her. The thought
thatyou mightlevur want would take ,
courage out 14 me. - - You promised
me once to k p our secret until I
a ie
gave you leav to *Teak. Give me
that promise. ew, Amy."
She did so--promising never to di-,
vulge the secret of her marriage nit
til her husband gave her leave.-
So Fred Elliot Ins • banished from
his father's .hotaii, because he had
married ;a wife; and left that wife,
all unknown and unsuspected, to
change and soften his .f.ther's heart.
The first time that she ventured to
speak of Fred her uncle silenced her
most perempturily. ~- . .
• "1 - forbid yu tcr\nanie him in my
presence. Let that subject be avoid:
ed between us, once-and, for all.: If'.
you are dutiful. 'you shall' supply his
place, as 1 will endetiVor to fill your ,
father's • but never speak that name."
• She o beyed with 'heavy heart;'
there was no choice-for her but to
obey, at .pregent. Her uncle grew,,
' much attached to her,Secretly awl. ,
silently he grieved sorely for his only
bon, and "inwardly cursed the amPi;
lions pride that had led to their es- ,
trangement,though outwardly he ars,'
geared • hard, and cold. • His hair; that
had been as black as jet, turned gray,
and a worn and anxious look became
habitual with him. ' To,Amy he turn
ed for Comfort in his heart's hidden
and unspoken desolation. -. .
She was his sleet and patient corn- '
paion always; reading, playing, sing
ing to him—Fred's favorite airs and
songs ; it was the only way in which
she dared plead for him and tenderly
recall him to his 'other's heart. She
took* charge of his hoine comfOrts
too, as they had not been cared for
since his. wife died long ago. Both
uncle and neice shrank from society,
but in the house, and- in long, solita-
ry wj
alks and drives, they were al
most inseparable.'

Young men contemplating mar

us to advise them in the manner of
popping the all important question
that at last we have concluded to
give our opinion a brief airing, once
for all:
YOII will find it a comparatively
easy matter to Bes:ore's wife if you
will exercise care as to the time and
place, with some .little regard as to
the manner. Never propose ick_a
young lady after a hearty meal. The
blood is needed to aid her. digpstibn
and her imagination is chilled.
. ..

for.the longings of. an importunate
System conduce to anxiety and irrit,
ability, and the shock- may. prove
hazardous. It would be better to
select the . evening, and generally
after you have taken her to some
entertainment. Her nerves are then
apt to - be - stronger ' and her mind
may . haVe.already d welt, on the pos.
Sibilities until she is ! perfectly pre
mred for the reality.
But never forget: yourself so fares

The best way is to invite her to some

her just as she is ready to start. This
will be greatly to 'your advantage.
for she will easy see - -that a rejection

have - fathomed the true inwardness
of that pet remark of the hero Of the
old white hat and Oat. --.
I have heard a legend to the effect
that. Greeley . had . a young friend-in,
the Custom-House, ,This friend was
continually b etting into some terri
ble scrape, , which_ nothing could help
him out of. save the cabaistic signa
ture of 'M.G. The youth was also
given to borrowing money. One fine
day he came into Greeley's office, and
slapping him on the shoulder said„:
' Well, old man, I'm another
icrape." The editor turned =about
and said in a very impressive man- .
ber,."Go. West, young man ! " Af
'ter that,thne he was in the habit . of
s+i~ icing all youths who came to him
4or assistance to ego West.'
How kind it was in the old man.,
Ile . knew (what they didn'ty that_
'there_ were no "soft jobs" out West;
that young men who went : 04 there
Ould have to " buck right

and that, afte.r.spending a iundred

on the prair i ii ocean, fr endless,

native of going to work, or Sending

-litter ourse, and after having made
'for - themselves enough' money to . re
turn to the East, they generally con
cluded to remain " just a little longer
'it wouldn't look 'well, yoU
to go home without anYthingto show

These are solemn facts, and to-day_
there are men in the West Who_enjoy

in their ever-rresent dire to cast all,

so constantly that they forget their

cynical opponent,Of Christianity will
hardly claim that,, as aTule, men pray
enough to hinder their efficiency in
the ordinary ,*ork of tlje work:. The
Christian, on his :part, well knows
that his. danget lies on the 'aide of

permit her ' to enjoy herSele.
to the quest on ot - 'the right to pray
for pniely personal enjoyment, her
position, was a consistent one. Either
she ought to have stayed at holne or
have done what she did. This old

things as he is in 'great. -

success. Some sentimental theolo
