To golden grain or mellow fruit,

To feed the hungry moss they bear,
The forest leaves drink daily life,
From out the viewless air.

The flowers may fade aud pass away

The coming of the May.

Walks o'er the earth with silent tread,
He btars our best loved things away,
And then we call them "dead."

Amid the tree of life.

To dwell in Paradise.

THE FACTOR! CIKL-
A. SENSIBLE LOVE STOH.
In a sweet, rural valley, nestled among
the kills of Massachusetts," stands a
pleasant village, with a picturesque mill
pond and factory. Several summers age
this hatu'.et was the temporary residence
of two youtig men, who were apparently
artists; as their chief occupation seemed
to. consist in sketching the scenery of the
neighborhood, which was celebrated (or
its beauty. Their arrival had created
some stir among the villagers, for with
out a Lit ol pretention, both young men
had a certaiu dignity of liianucr that
made them look up to and ruapy a pretty

Though the society of the village was
unusually intelligent, and the females
were remarkable for their loveliness, yet
there was one famed beyond all the rest.
in both Jiind and person. Sweet Edith
Mather. She was an orphan, without
sister or brother, and lived with an aged
aunt, whom the chiefly supported by her
labor in the factory. Edith was popular
with every oue. She was so gentle, con
siderate and kind, that even those who at I
first envied, learned at last to love her.
The younger of the two artists, whom we
shall name Lovell, soon became interested
in the gentle girl, at least if looks, tones
and constant seeking of hcr presence
were any proof, he was thus interested.
Oue day he and his friend had claab
crcd up some rocks on the steep hil! side,
from which the village was overlooked,
and as they sat there, the bell of the fac?
tory rancr, and the green was immediately i
covered with the girls employed in it,
wending their way thither after dinner.
Among them it was easy to recognize the
light ami graceful form of Edith Mather.
"Is she not beautiful ? Where can you
show me a person so sylph like?" said
Lovell with undisguised enthusiasm.
His companion made no reply for a
moment, and then abruptly remarked.
'-I think it is time we Lad left this
"Why?" asked Lovell in a tone of
Because, ifwe do not, you will have

"To be sure."
"The duce you do," paid his compan
ion, starting to his feet in unaffected as
tonishment. Lovell iudulged in a hearty laugh,
j and then asked :
"Why not ? Why tor a thousand rea
sons. She's only a factory girl, a lady
of neither birth or education, but a sim
ple country lass, very pood in her way,
but no match for Fred Lovell."
"Think of presenting her to your fash
ionable friends in town 1 o no it
will never do. Shake off this love Ct ;
pack up your trunk and let us he off to
morrow," Lovell shook his head.
"I am, perhaps a more romantic man

would soon learn, too, with her quick

This conversation here ceased; and di
rectly the two trieuds retraced their steps
to the village.
The next morning Lovell's companion
came down stairs attired for a journey.
"1 am going lack to tovn" he said,
"I am tired of ruralizing. The fit for
that is over, and 1 ai afraid if I stay I
shall be "as foolijh as you."
So the two parted ; but Lovell remained
behind ; aud in less than a week it was
known everywhere in the village th$t he
aud Edith were engaged to be married.
"If you can couteut yourself with the
precarious life of a poor artist," he said,
when he told his affection, "we may be
Edith answered with a look of her
bright e)C3 so tender, confiding and elo
quent, that Lovell adored her from that
tuomenl more than ever.
In a fortnight they were married,
when Lovell took his brido to see his re
lations in the Southern city frutu whence
he came. Edith's parting wiih her auut
was sorrowful, but it pas made iu expec
tation of speedily returning. Arriving
at Philadelphia, the carriage drove to a
haudsome residence in Walnut street.
She was dazzled by the glare ol Jigut
that burst from the windows.
