[The following beautiful and touching
verses, by a New Orlenns lady, were writ
ten as a farewell to her husband, during her
illness and in . ros eet of an early dear-
Call me no more thine owni The Summer
So lured by me, shall never come again
I scarce shall look upon the spring's pale
And in this life of weariness'and pain
Shan be no more thine own.
The spring shall wake - fresh verdure in the
Freed from gray winter blue shall glow
the sky ;
But ere the sweet breathed violets grow
This fading form in dust shall lie,
And be no more thine own.
The shadow of the parting hour is nigh;
_ _lt falls, dear one, upon my heart and
as! to leave thee when life's morning
To be no more thine.own!
I soon shall leave thee; thou, beloved, wilt
A gloomy shadow o'er thy pathway
And all too. soon the truth will o'er thee
That in this dreary world thou art alone,
And I no more thine own.
No more thine own! To wake for thee, at
The chords of music sweetest to thine
To love thee still through joy and grief,
To be thy truest friend, of all most dear,
c :" But not on earth thine own.
On these near hills, whose beauty never
My lingering feet shall rest. Oh ! do not
Thou too shall dwell where sorrow ne'er
With Him who giveth h:s beloved sleep
And I shall be thy own.
THE WIFE'S TEMPTATION.
'Mercenary little thing? Who could
imagine that she could be so artful?' said
Mrs. Fulton, contemptuously; and society,
judging from its own standard, quite co
incided in her opinion. •
He was double her age. Of course she
had married him for money.
Was it so? Lily Rivers herself could
scarcely answer the question. She was
very friendless, very desolate; it was but
dreary work, acting as governess to Mrs.
Fulton's unruly children, and bearing the
airs of that great lady herself. Mark
Grant's tender heart melted with infinite
compassion at the sight of the fragile
young creature, bearing her cheerless life
so uncomplainingly, striving so bravely
to fulfil her duties. An intense desire to
shield and protect her came over him;
then, to his own amazement, Mark Grant,
who, for nearly two score years, had re
sisted all matrimonial traps, found that
he had fallen hopelessly in love with his
sister's pretty governess.
When Mr.Gmut,the rich banker,asked
Lily to be his wife, she was almost over
powered by the unexpected honor; his
vows were the first words of affection she
had listened to for many years. It was
so delightful to have some one to cling to
—to know that she was not utterly friend
less. She never asked herself if she loved
this man as a wife should love her hus
band, she esteemed him above all other
men; he loved her, he said; she could
render his home a heaven upon earth.—
.What more was wanting to complete her
So Lily reigned like a queen in Mark
Grant's stately mansion at Clapham, and
felt a vived delight in the luxury and
splendor with which'her husband loved
to surround her. Mark never seemed tired
of ministering to his young wife's pleas
A year passed thus, then Gerald Lacy
appeared Upon the scene. He was Mark's
cousin- handsome, wealthy, and talented;
he was one of society's idols, had some
what tired of its attractions; and now,
after some years of foreign travel, he had
returned to his native land. We have
said he was rich and idle; how could he
employ the time better than by devoting
it to his cousin's lovely wife? Such pas
time was necessary to Gerald's excitement
loving nature. He was not a bad man,
only a thoughtless trifler, and he assured
himself he meant no harm.
Mark did not understand the value of
the treasure he possessed. Lily was his
cousin; it would be only a charity to en
liven her life !" Thus ho reasoned.
Accordingly, Mr. Lacy set himself to
work to render himself agreeable. Lily
was not very difficult to please; she re
ceived all his -attentions graciously, for
Gerald was a new experience to the girl;
his gay manner captivated her simple
fancy; he was a hero in her sight; he call
ed her his friend: Lily imagined that never
before had frietidship assumed so fair a

he yielded himself up to the fierce passion
which consumed him. He declared to
himself that he could not live without her.
He felt no remorse for the dishoner he
would bring upon his _ kinsman's name,
no pity for the woman he would fain dis
grace; absorbed in his selfish passion, he
was deaf to the voice of conscience.
One day, Mrs. Grant's maid delivered
to her mistress a note which excited

from Gerald, declaring his love, and en
treating her to meet him in the arbor that
evening. As she read, Lily's face was
crimsoned by a deep flush of shame; she
saw the terrible abyss which yawned be:
neath her. ' and, kneeling down, she prayed
as one in deadly peril might pray, that
she might be enabled to resist temptation.

All Gerald's fine-gentleman composure
forsook him; he would thin have kissed
the wet, flushed cheeks, but dared not.
'Don't cry, darling,' he said, piteously,

moment's pain. I love you so dearly,
`And I love you as a brother!' she
sobbed. I trusted you so entirely; and
now you ask me to leave Mark—to dig.

pleaded. 'He cares more for his business
than he ever cared for you. You never

shared his abundance* with me. You
know how noble he is. You would drag

never knew how dearly until last night.'
`Then there is no hope for me!' said
Gerald, white to the lips.
'There is every hope for you. There
would, indeed, be no hope for you were I
mad enough to listen to you. Could you
bear to have the woman you loved point
ed at by the finger of scorn. I am a
proud woman, Gerald; if you could bear
it, I could not. The time will come when
you will bless me that I was firm. You
have too noble a nature to be ruined by
any woman. I shall pray for you night
and day. But you must go; you cannot

'Have you no pity? Won't you let me
stay where I can sometimes see you?'
'No,' she answered; 'there would be
danger for both of us- -a danger that, for
my husband's sake, I dare not incur.'
Gerald stood for a moment, his hand
some young face all wan and haggard in
the gray evening light. He had loved this
woman better than he bad ever thought
to love mortal being; it seemed like the
agony of death to leave her thus. He
gave one hat long look at the fair, child
like face, the wistful, brown eyes, the tan
gled golden curls :floating around her
head, and then turned to go.
'Won't you say good-bye to me, Ger
Then he raised2the slender white hand
to his lips.
`God help me, for I am very miserable!
Good-bye, Lily I' he said hoarsely.
A moment more, and he was gone.—
Then Lily hid her face in the damp grass,
and wept as though her heart were break
ing. Her ideal dream of friendship had
fled; only stern duty remained.
Mark Grant , loudly condemned the
sudden caprice which had caused his
cousin to start for Paris just as they im

Two aged men entered a streetcar a
few days ago, in a neighboring city. One
of them who was paralyzed. said, in re

welfare : "I have a very large interest in

wants while he lived,aud then again add
ed, "but I have a very large interest in

tracted the attention of other passengers,
and those words kept wringing in his ears
all the rest of the day. He could not get
rid of the deep impression made by the
singular earnestness and happiness of the
Surely this is the beauty of old age.—
Its joys and blessedness; the calm assur
ance of a portion beyond - this life in "the
inheritance of the saints in light."
Little, too, did the veteran think of the
power of his reiterated sentence. upon the
hearts of his fellow-travellers,who did not
even know his name. Yet these wayside
utterances of warm-hearted Christians are
often the most eloquent lay-preachieg,both
to unconverted people and to believers
who happen to overhear them. Our un
conscious influences are frequently the
best or the worst that we exert.
But the best of all is when the pilgrim
lire draws near its close, and when the
staff and sandals are soon to be laid aside
to feel that our "best and largest interests
are in the next world."
The treasure grows at more than com
pound interest Its value increases as the
vision of it widens like the firmament.—
The riches cannot "take to themselves
wings and fly away." It is a life interest
for eternity, and faith only asserts its di
vine prerogative, "while we look not at
the things which are seen,but at the things
which are not seen, for the things that are
seen are temporal, but the things that are
not seen are eternal."
THE CHRISTIAN'S Ho:vs.—We make
our best use of this world when we regard
it as the' basis from whiCh to survey the
other. Withcut heaven, poetry could
have no existence. The key-note of the
poetic is future perfection, and the heaven
of the Christian is the highest perfection.
I know of no better illustratioti of these
truths than a simple expression which fell
from the lips of a godly friend of mine.
Through- perseverance and industry, he
had been able to build himself a house.
But his chief boast was, that from his fire
side he could sre his father's house on the
distant hill. 'No matter the weather,'
said he, `whether, winter or summer.spring
or autuirinno matter the sky. whether
cloudless or stormy—when I sit by my
east window, father's roof and chimney
tops, the gleam of his lamp at night, are
always visible to my sight.' His words
contain the philosophy of life, and enclose,
as in a nutshell, the principles of holy
living. Enviable—yea, thrice enviable
—is the man who can pierce the clouds of
social darkness which surround our earth
ly homes, and see his Father's house, with
its many mansions, in the distant heaven.

member of Congress from-Michigan-witty
Mrs. Sibley, widow of Major Sibley,
States army. She was Miss Humph
ries, daughter of Judge Humphries,of the
Supreme Court of the State of Ohio, and
twenty-seven years ago was affianced to
Mr. Conger , then a handsome, blooming
youth. Miss Humphries was pretty, a
belle and a flirt. Her flirting propensi
ties did not_please_Mr.-Conger T -aud - he - re- -
monstrated with her. Being a high-spir
ited girl,she finally broke the engagement,
telling him she would never marry him.
He left the State. She married and .
he married. Major Sibley lived twelve
years. There were no children and at
his death she went abroad. Mrs. Conger
lived a few years, and left three children.
In October, weary of European life, Mrs.
Sibley determined to return to her home
in Cincinnati. Arriving in New York, it
occurred to her to come to Washington
for a few weeks. Oh, woman, how mys
terious are thy ways ! One day, time
hanging wearily on her hands, she wan
dered to (?) Congress; of course, never
dreaming that in this august body sat her
affinity ! An hour passed ; the debates
were prosy and tedious. So, gathering
her wraps about her, she prepared to leave
the gallery, when there was a tap on her
shoulder. Turning, who did she behold
but the lover of her youth !
After commonplace greetings in an ag
itated voice,she made the inquiry, "I sup
pose your family are with you ?" "Did
you not know that my wife was dead ?"
With tragic start,she averred she did not.
They chatted some time, and on leaving
she said, "I am at the Arlington,will you
come and see me ?" Hesitation on his
part, blushes on hers, and then in a low
voice, replied Conger, "I will come if you
take back what you said to me twenty
five years ago." "I will," she answered,
and she willed. The engagement was
very brief, and the happy twain were
THE GENTLE LlFE.—This is the beau
tiful heritage of the well-born man and
the gentle woman. They may be poor or
rich to-day, they may be living a life of
leisure or toiling for their bread—all the
same they carry with them the grace, the
care, the gentleness, the consideration,
the knowledge which we call intuition or
instinct, which comes from generations of
culture and a thousand qualities of mind
and heart which win social recognition and
bring happiness to the possessor.
The accumulation of more money as an
inheritance for children is often worse than
nothing in their hands ; it deprives them
of all incentive to personal effort and un
frequently proves the means by which they
ride fast to destruction. Money is worse
than nothing if the lives of the past and
associations of the present have not taught
us how to put it to its noblest uses. ,
But the order, the training, the exper
ience of a life are invaluable. They form,
with education, a key that unlocks the re
cesses of the world, and becomes a power
that no loss in stocks or bonds or houses
or lands can deprive the fortunate posses
sor of. They make him the equal of the
best, and therefore at ease with all men
ANOTHER SNAKE STORY.—Says the
New York Ttibunc : In Murraysville,
Cooke county, Teun. Mrs. Kennedy has
for some years suffered great pains. and
`felt something running up and down her
stomach.' So at last, after some hospital
treatment, she sent for Perriam Gyles, M.
D. This physician having summoned two
of his brethren, an operation was under
taken. Surgical particulars are unneces
sary. The result was that two liviug rat
tlesnakes, the one thirty-six, the other
thirty-two inches long, were removed from
the woman, and she is now perfectly well,
while the snakes, in a stuffed state, adorn
the museum of Col. John Stephens. Mrs.
Kennedy says that several years ago 'she
swallowed two small, soft, white eggs,'
which she found in a field,supposing them
to be partridge eggs.' The gentle reader
may ask if we believe this story, To this
we answer that we do not believe one
word of it. We reject the eggs and the
nnrikrma and the roitlem and Kenned y
altogether, and even of the remainder of
the narrative we have certain doubts.

Failures in Business.
The man who never fails in business
can not possibly know whether he has any
"grit" in him, or is worth a button. It is
the man who fails, then rises, who is real
ly great in his way.
Peter Cooper failed in makieg hats,fail
ed as a cabine i maker, locomotive builder,
and a grocer, and as often as he failed, he
"tried and 'tried again," until he could
stand upon his feet alone, then crowned
his victory by giving a million dollars to
help the poor boys in times to come.
Horace Greeley tried three or four lines
of business before he founded the Tribune,
and made it worth a million dollars.
Patrick Henry failed at everything he
undertook, until he made himself the orna
ment of his nation.
The founder of the New York Hetald
kept on fitiling and sinking money for ten
years, and then made it one of the most
profitable newspapers on earth.
Stephen A. Douglas made dinner tables,
and bedsteads, and bureaus, many a long
year before he made himself a "giant" on
the floor of Congress.
Abraham Lincoln failed to make both
ends meet by chopping, wood, failed to
earn his salt in the galley'slave life of a
Mississsippi flat boatman; he had not oven
wit enough to run a grocery, and yet
made himself the grandest character of
the nineteenth century. .
Geu. Grant failed in everything except
smoking cigars, he learned to tan . hides,
but could not sell leather enough to pur
chase a pair of breeches. A dozen years
ago "he brought up" on top of a wood
pile," teaming it" for forty dollars a month
and yet he is at the head of a great nation.
The lesson for every young man is this :
As long as you have the health, and have
the power to do, go ahead; if you fail at
one thing try another, and a third—a dozen
even. Look at the spider; nineteen times
it tried to throw out its web to its place
of attachment, and on the twentieth suc
ceeded. The young man who has the gift
of continuance is the one whose foot will
be ablest to breast the angry waters of
WHY EARS SHOULD NOT BE BOXED.
—ln "Physiology for Practical Use" (D.
Appleton & Co.) we find the following:
There are several things very commonly
done which are extremely injurious to the
ear, and ought to be carefully avoided.—
* * * And first, children's ears ought
never to be boxed. We have seen that
the passage of the ear is closed. by a thin
membrane, especially that adapted to be
influenced by every impulse of the air,
and,with nothing but the air to support
it internally. What, then, can be more
likely to injure this membrane than a sud
den and forcible compression of the 'air in

value of using glue as a healing agent for
cuts, bruises, - etc. "I have used glue for
this purpose for the last t years, mostly
in the cabinet shop, and never - employ
anything else. I have received many
severe cuts and bruises, and never lost
any tithe to speak 6f. Often a piece of
thin chith is sufficient after glueing over
the wound. I use the best imported glue.
I never took cold in a wound yet, and it
is the most speedy healing agent I ever
employed. Last autumn an acgaintance
of mine came in the - shop with his head
all bundled up. He had received a se

took cold in it; and it was badly inflam

and bound a moistened cloth over to keep
the glue from beComing dry. In one wets
