Thoughts occassioned by attending a S. S.
Festival, held near Waynesboro, Frank
lin Co., Fa:
I shall not soon forget that day,
Perehande the thoughtless may,
Day; fraugh:t with memories sad and street,
Fled With its acts away, - •
From mountain top to valley green,
Bathed brightly in sunlight,
While sparkling streams and songsterri• gay,
Hailed us with wx • • e g
When we ; as strangers hastened on,
. To join the merry throng,
To celebrate a festive day,
The aged and the young, '
Beneath the shady boughs we me_ti
Upon a carpet green, •
While smiling softly trent above,
The glorious sun was seen.
The-young, the beautiful were there,
Perchance the high, the low,
The_iviae,the good, the rich arid poor,
All, roaming to an.fro,
Each heart seemed bounding light with. joy,
As laugh and jest past round,
Then seated on our carpet gfeen,
We spread our, luxuries down.
With all the dainty things of earth,
The appetite to please,
While generous friends still kindly prompt,
No pomp, no ceremony show — ,
No fashionable air,
he puxe - in' heart-tohee
But pleasures of that joyous day,
When memory dwells on those kind hearts,
Who tears of pity shed.
For oh the gentle kind were there,
Amid that happy throng,
To drop - a tear in sorrow's cup,
To help the weak along,
And I, of those, shall often think ;
(How sweet to memory yet,)
Tho' strangers still in name and form,
I never shall forget.
Who with that mother dropped a. tear,
When from her heart was wrung,
The cry, lost, lost my darling child
A mothers little son;
Those words of sympathy and love,
The,willing feet that ran,
To seek the little wanderer up,
The thoughtless lit lamb.
And when at last, the little one,
Is guided to her arm,
Found by a . stranger, - wandering far,
In team and sad alarm.
What tears of joy and gratitude,
Fell on that mother's ear;
From stranger's lips ne'er heard before,
Again may never hear.
Accept y.e sympathetic one,
The prayer this heart would send,
Thaflheast's as:warm, sincere as thine,
Smile on thee to life's end,'
And thou unknown. one, ever feel
Within.a mother's soul, •
There blooms the flower gratitude,
For bringing to the fold,
Her little wandering boy, so dear
Found on the highway of despair,
Weeping sad alone
For mother, friends and home.
Or if like him your footsteps stray,
Beyond the pasture green,
May angels bring thee back again,
To duty's path serene,
And bring thee, to a Savior's breast,
• From sin and death away,
This, this, the tribute I would give,
This shall I humbly pray.
Met in the golden morn of day,
We parted .at its close,
Cheered by Luna's silver beams,
Speaking of sweet repose;
Fatewell bright joyous, festive day,
Farewell each loving heart.
Met once upon life's ocean vast,
Met, but alas 1 to part,
Shall we when storms of life are past,
As friends of Jesus meet, . .
To celebrate His feast of love
At our Redeemer's feet?
God grant indeed it may be thus,
. The loving kind, sincere,
Meet oft as strangers in life's path,
No more, as strangers There!

"Mother, I shall have to get married."
"Law bless you, Julius—how you do
"It's just here ) " continued Julius, as he
twirled his hat on his left forefinger. "You

- "There's - been - no great fuss, - only I told
her that if John Gillman wants to court
her now as bad as he, used to, I shan't

mother, I want a wife who knows how to

that Bessie can't get up any ordinary din

"Guess you haven't heard me say any

"Yes—Henry would have me stay.—
Mrs. Barton was sick abed, and the hired
girl was away, so I had a chance'to find
out that the good dinners I'd had there
before weren't cooked by Miss Bessie, for
of all dinners I ever tasted,•my yesterday's
one was the cap-sheaf. The beef was burnt
black, and the pudding was soggy, and
the salad was enough to make a dog sick."
"No wonder, Julius," said Mrs. Austin,
somewhat anxiously, for. Bessie was her
particular favorite. "No wonder, I should
think, with her mother sick and needing
to be waited on, and the girl gone, and
half a dozen extra ahnds to work in the
harvest. One pair of hands can't do every
thing, nor one head think of everything
at once. I know that much."
"Nonsense, mother. It's no more work
—and I've heard more than one say so—
to cook for a dozen than one when a body
is about it. Isn't it just as easy to roast
a large peice of meat as a small one, and
to stir up a big pndoling as a little oner'
This was man's logic, and Mrs. Austin
being only a woman, of course could not
meet it ; so she made no answer.
"To tell the truth," Julius pursued with
a small measure of embarrassment, "I'm
sorry—not that I found it out, for it's a
lucky thing for me that I did—but that
is so, for in other respects Bessie is as
smart as steel." -- And Julius looked for
the moment as though to give her up caus
ed him real pain.
Mrs. Auston was not so disappointed as
to let the curiosity said to be so natural
to her sex remain long dormant.
"Well, Julius, who are you going to
marry ?" '
e "That's just what I don't know myself,
but I've hit on a plan by which I can get
the kind of wife I. want without the both
er of courting. I've vritten an advertise
ment stating my needs, desires, &c., and
this afternoon I shall take.it to the print
Mrs.. Austin dropped her knitting again
and ejaculated : •
"Tear me, what is the world coming to?
Here•he wants to do away with the good
old fashion of courting, and marry a per
fectstranger. What heathenish nonsense?"
gOld fogyism is passed away. . The
world is growing wiser,".said Julius, sage
ly as he foldedA closely. written sheet of
paper which he deposited...carefully in his
pocket, then tapping...the pocket signifi
cantly, he added,,.‘!.This.will get me a wife
that you will be .proud Mark my
word about that." •
While Julius had been conversing with
his mother he had likeivise been busy in
brughing his hair, adjusting his collar and
putting on his coat, and noir taking his
hat and gloves,
he went out, saddled a
horse and took his way to the city for the
express and only purpose of having his ad
vertisement inserted in one of the dailies.
Mrs. Austin watched him until he dis
appeared, with a troubled countenance,
then suddenly a shrewd smile flitted over
her face. She arose from her seat, say
ing : •
"Yes, Julius, I shall be proud of the
wife that I.am going to help you to get.

tin had indulged her son by "trying,"_ and
Julius had been enchanted by the lucious
results, and the happy fellow was sure
that thus is the easiest manner possible he
had found a woman worthy to be his
Julius was so perfectly satisfied that he
did not ask permission, nor desire to see
the future Mrs. Julius until he should
see her in her bridal -robes. The day for
the wedding was:finally set,and Julius was
a little surprised and a good deal vexed
when Dora insisted upon the wedding•
taking place at Henryjßarton's. His fam
ily, she wrote, were the nearest kin she
had in the world, and since they were per- .
fectly willing, - she should very much pre
fer being married at their house.
"I don't believe I care anything for
Bessie now," muttered Julius, as he read
DOra's Letter. "I'm determined I won't
any way since lam going to marry an
other, but---, well confound it,l. don't'
like the notion of having Bessie by when
lam married; but Dora seems so set a
bout it I suppoded I shall have to let her
have her way."
Julius was uncommonly serious and re:
ticent, as, with his mother by hie side he
drove to the house of Henry Barton on
the day appointed for his wedding. He
was going to the very house where he had
passed so many happy hours with Bessie.

his heart at this late hour told -him he
should be, but to another, one whom he
had never seen, about whom--he kneW
nothing save that she could name ingre

But was not this enough? Julius tried
to reason with himself that it was. He
thought of Bessie's spoiled dinner, and
tried "to steal his heart more sorely against

—breathing the air she breathed, seeing
the scenes with which she was familiar.
her birds were singing in the cage over
his head, - her flowers were blooming in

Mechanically Julius followed his con

door was thrown open. His mother was
in the room looking mysteriously myrth-'
ful. Two or-three of the , neighbor's girls
