When early morning lifted her sweet head •
From ten the bill tops blushing rosy red;
While through the eternal portal of rho

And Iseult the forhsts''greedenaluell'd shade •
The gaidote beams, with quivering luetre played,—
Swept scented violets frnm their slumbers woke:.
And itird's soft enrol ibe deep silence broke. ,
Then midst the downy aad balm-breathing grove,
Betide ale Wandered• forth my blight-eyed lave,

To Was her 013dt:bends the pink eglantine;
The yellow primroses embrace her feet,
And low toed winds, - altfilled wit# odors sweet,
Breathe round enamored through the shadowy dell,
Glithering'fresh sweetness from my:Bone. bell.
Yet dearer still when, ruddy daylight &dee
Before the , silent and swift footed
Which dark-eyed Night,Cleeked in her starry crown,
Brings in her train to chnie the innbeains do4e,
Then'' math the darkness 'close einbraesii to stray
And'whisoer sweetly happy hours swiy.
In day or night thus found,' dearer charms,
As day v,r night,. thus brought her to my arms:

-How do I sigh for her,•alas in vain,
And eleep)n tears to wake in tears again,
In 1002 the bishops of Paderbord and Mon
earn , were put in possession df (heir sees by
'receiving a glove as the sign thereof. But the
custom gradually became, A mere fee to the

which then become

vants—glove money. for a pair , of gloves pre
sented or service rendered. This has been
spoken of before. - .
This manner of payment, too , is the arc haic
and original meaniogef the white gloves gi
ven away at - weddings- 'they i were ftes given
to the bridesmaids antfbitifeafro*:p4acull'Or

dine is odd. The print asks the bridegroom
for a ring and a pair of gloves ;• red gloves, if
they can be had ; with three., bite of - silver
money inside them.
Patting the gloves into this . bridegroom's

on the feminine part of the population was egz

custom, too ; was that of giving gloves full of
money at *eddings : one of the feW obsolete
which it would be an advantage to revive.
But gloves are also used as symbols of;quar
rel as well as of possession ,; and Co throw down
the giuntlet bas.elwaye meant to challenge, to
assume the right to defend both in chivalrous
times, 'and before . and after. Even we have
still the ehamtsion in our Coronations, with his
well-trained steed, and the beautiful manor of
Serfvelaby, held on the easy °condition Abat - he

would care to take an' ill-conditioned, fellow's
insult on their Shoulders ?.
The sexton would not fob the life of him touch
tha gloves q but Besuarci Qiiipin c tutting along•
pole, lifted them off their hook, and ,took both
them and the quarrel on himself;* drawing
them forth during the sermon and rating the
parish soundly for harboring such evil thoughts
and suffering such unchristian practices ,to
abound. Yet it wee a very cowmen thing in
chivalrous times to hang up the gauntlet in the
church ; when woe to him who touched it or
took it down I. 'Nothing less than a quarrel a
outranee for a cause as silly , as the mode of de
fending it was barbarous. The last challenge
by means of a glove was in Queen Elizabeth's
time, in the year 1751; On fhb Occasion' of a
dispute concerning some lands - in Kent ; when
a trial by single combat was demanded—the
disputants meetingjn court, where one drew

tiometimes a glove was used as the symbol
of protection, not of quarrel and,insult : and
even to this day it is hung out in some towns
during fair times, in re_meMbtallee of the time
when it was a sign that all, who gathered there
were safe from those annoying things called
duns, and need be under no apprehension of
sudden seizure tw living shoulder knots, more
startling than pleasing. 'Hoisting the glove' is
still practised at Easter, devias the Lammas
Fair. It is a glove of immense eiZe, which is
stuffed and carried through the city, hoisted
on the top of a long pole all beflowered and
beribboned attended by music, the beadles, and
the nobility, then hung out of a window at the
Guindhall as a sign that the fair has begun, and
when it is taken in, the fair is ended. At the
Free Mart of Portsmouth, a glove was hung
out of the window during fair time, and while
it hung no one was arrested. So. Maccles

At Barnstable, too, a large glove decked
with dahlias, is hung out from the window of
the quay Hall,, the oldest huilding of the city,
and while ii hangs the fair hi going on, and

and at Chester so 'famous for its gloves, they
do the same thing. The glove, in alt these in

To wear a glove 'in one's hat or'cip meant
one of theee things, silt the old writers:
a favor of a niietress, the memorial of a friend,
and as a mark to be challengedby an enemY,"
As a favor of a mistress it was always a popu
lar donation. When Queen Elizabeth, that
rampant old coquette, gave her dropped glove
.to the E./A of Cumberland who picked it up,
that - benighted individual set it round with
diamonds and stuck it in his bat as the greatest,
and highest, and richest, and royalest favor
man could show ; and Shakespeare, and the
other draniatists,of his date speak of gloves
worn in the cap:as ordinary' evidence of a
lady's favor and a knight's deserving.

Ralliwell, in his dictionary, calls it talking

others make it out to have been a kind of mo

it was, however, the mode of playing and the

Was this the origin of "winning glovesi , " by

`knowledge on the tatbjeat, one guassls is good

delicietis bit'of feigning with its MI comple
tion in thin. There was a pleastult custom too
oonseeted with the new moon, and gloves, and
kissing that deserve's a word.. In some Coin:
try'places it was—perhaps is—the custom for
a number of young people to assemble together
to watch for the:new moon, when whoefer saw
it first gave his or her neighbor a kiss, and got
a pafr of doves as the reward.

and a sewing , that shall be at once fine and
strong ; while anything like embroidery or ad
ventitione ornament, or mixture of polors, or
incongrnoui materials does not count as the
beat taste in these modern days of luxury and
-n'tility combined. But in olden times gloves
were esceedingly - costly. That story of Coeur
de Lion being . discovered on his fateful jour
ney by the jeweled gloves which hung at his
page's girdle, shows how- magnificently they
were-sometimes adorned; while oven the Holy
-Mather Chdreh did- not disdain the use of these
mundane vmdtlea for her reverend -kande ; the
gloves of all the prelates of England being be
decked with precious stones as parts of ordi
nary prelatical pomp and useful glory.
In the beginning of the ninth century they
were even legislated on; and in the lima of
Louis le Debonnaire the Council of Aix or
dered all godly monks to wear sheepskin gloves
only. The eMbroidered glove was purely epis
eopal, like the ring and - sandals; and - when
some abbots in France presumed to wear , thetn,
the. Council of Poitiers sharply reproved them
for insolence and encroachment. Later, WA'

Joan'and Philip Flower stroked the cat Rut

" Mount Rutter and fly ;" and Rutter mailed
but did not fly, though Lord Henry fell sick
unto death. Then there is the story of the
lady whO threw her glove into the arena where
the lion stood to test the.worth of her lover's
vows, and who received as her reward the
glove flung scornfully back into her face, with
the applause of king and court to the daring
and disenchanted lover. This is a story which
has given two of our poets occasion for very
lovely, if differing fencies—Leigh Hunt siding
with the lover and King Francis, and branding
the lady with the shame of heartless coquetry
and most unworthy pride; Browning taking,
perhaps,' the nobler rim, and maintaining it
to have been a mere test of truth and sincerity,
which failed in the application—to the bring
ing forth of a higher joy. Then there is the
monkish legend of Saint Gudule, the patroness
of Brussels ' who flourished, as the date books
say, in the beginning of the eighth century,
and who one day came praying in•the church
with naked feet; praying with such fervor and
with feet so naked, that a charitable priest put
his gloves under them for shoes to protect
them from chilblains and the damp of the
stones. . .
But Saint Gudnle kicked the gloves away,
and went on with her prayers, while the gloves
hung suspended in the air for upwards of an .
hour, to the great marveling of the beholders,
and the testimony, by a miracle, of the Saint's
true character beneath her cowl. There is
another older world story about gloves, in the
adventures of Asa Thor, on his way to 'Totem-.
Mem ; and how, on his way thither, he, and
Loke, and the swift young Thialfi who had
sucked the marrow of the goat's leg-bone, so
that the beast went lame for the rest of his
natural days—unnaturld, rather—how they all
got lost in a. forest, and, slept in a spacious
hall, with a smaller chamber branching off.
Which hall they found afterwards was nothing
but the giant's Bitrytoirie glove, witb
thumb, where they had'taken refuge from the
wind, for the smaller, chamber. Then there
were Thor's irop gloves, , without which he
dared not attempt to grasp his mighty hammer,
