ITe let the old fulks here the Highway,
And started towerds the Maple Farm
Along a kind of lovers' by-way.
I eaa"t remember what we said,
Twu nothing worth a song or story,
let that rede path by which we sped,
geeta-d all transformed and in a glory.
The mew was eriip beneath onr feet,
Tie mono was full, the field were gleaming ;
Bj hood and tippet sheltered sweet,
tier face with youth and health waa beaming
Jier little hand oaiside her muff

So lightly touched my jacket-cuff,
To keep it warm 1 bad to hold it.
To hue her there with me alone.
Teas lore and fear and triumph blended,
At Uit we reached the foot-worn atone,
W here that delicious journey ended.
Eh shook ber ringlet from her bead.
And with a -Thank yon. Ned," dissemble!,
Cut yet I knew she understood
With what a daring wish I trembled.
A elnod passed kindly overhead,
Ihe moon was slyly peeping through it,
Tct hid its face, as if it said :
"Ciae! now or never! doit! doit!"
My lips till then bad only known
The kiof mother and of sister,
Cut somehow, full npon ber own

Perhaps 'twas boy.sh love, yet still,
O listless woman! weary lover !

" here are you going. George?' asked
'i am going hleigh riding with the party

pair of lemon colored kid glovei, which,
roni.lring the night was dark as pitch and
tie thermometer s-tood at zero, was a piece
of idiocy well ic5tting a ynung man in love.
"What lady do you take with you?"

aoically loosened the reins and touched my
'l m norse with the whip, "George

suppose he couldn't get any girl to accompa

greatest fool I he my gracious I" For Sul
tan, my horse, gave a plunge just then. I
had nncnnssiously given him a merciless cut
with the whip, and it required all my
strength and self-possession to calm him
down again. Still I never spoke my teeth
were tightly set together and I could feel a
burning spot in the centre of each cheek,
which seemed as if they mast glow in the
dark like live coals.but I waited instinctive
ly to hear more.
"Now.yoa're not vexed with me, Bruce,"
murmured Kate, "Just because I mentioned
George Withwood'a name? You know I
don't care two straws about him a conceit
ed, silly blockhead, that fancies a girl is in
love with him, just because she happens oc
casionally to smile at his foolish speeches. I
assure you. Bruce, I've never seriously en

thing to amuse her in a dull country place
like this, (ieorge Withwood, indeed, as if
I could care for him when you are near,
Bruce ! How he will stare when he gets our
wedding cards r.ext week 1"
She broke out laughing that merry, me
lodious laugh which had been music to my
ears so many times, in our lonely woodland
rambles and twilight gossips beneath the
vine draped porch. Flow differently it
sounded to me now ; the hollow resonance
of some tuneless instrument how could I
ever have fancied it sweet !
"I've worn my engagement rine ti-night
Bruce," she went on coaxingly; "there's no
use keeping the matter secret any longer,
and I want to see what the cirls will all say.
You've no objection hare you, Brnee, for

The long line of sleighs had come to a

"Why. she's here! What on earth does

not a particularly melodious one of Mr.
Bruce Barnwell. Kate started up with a
"WhcreamI? Who is this in the sleigh?"
"Pray don't djstnrb yourself, Miss Aspen
dale," satirically growled Mr. Barnwell ; ev
idently there was an abundant spice of the
grim Othello in his temperament- "If ynu
prefer Mr. Withwood's company to mine,
it's all right,"
. "Mr. Withwood !" reDeated Kate.wildlv.
On, mercy ! it can t be possible!"
Some ones held up a ianternr I looked
full into Kat Asncndala's snlendid tlurk
Now, it I had been a woman, what voiiiss
of satire I could have fired into the enemy's
camp what red hot coals of taunting jocos
ity I could have heaped upon Kate's de
fenceless head. But being a man, I left her
to the puniihment of her own recollections,
and bowed with all the courtesy I could com
mand. "Permit me to assist yon into the other
sleigh. Miss Aspendale," I said. "When
Mr. Barnwell understands that it was my
mistake that you entered this equipage, he
wiil pardon any appearance of awkwardness
in the affair."
WiThout a single word Kate Aspendale
descended from my sleigh and was assisted
into that of Mr. Barnwell, who still sat up
right and irate, staring indignantly around
"Good evening, Miss Aspendale," I said,
unable to resist the temptation of launching
back one Parthian arrow, as I drove away,

Alice, my blue eyed cousin, was sewing
alone in the room when I returned home.
She looked up in surprise as I entered.
"Home so soon ?" she said. "I hardly
expected to see you so early."
"Didn't you, Alice !" I sat down be-ide
her. "But you see I wanted to say some
thing very particular to you."
"Upon my word, Alice, I'm in earnest."
So I was. After the stormy reign of Kate
Aspendale in my heart, Alice's sweet face
seemed like a dream of repose for which I
longed with an undescribed longing.
And the next day I went on a tecond
sleigh ride with my dove-eyed little fiance,
and our cards were out in the same week with
those of "Mr. and Mr. Bruce Barnwell."
An Irishman entered a barber shop while
drunk, ate wiMi a brush a cup of !ather,dug
out the ball of soap at the bottom of the cup,
ate that, and sat down to warm his feet.
"How did you like your lunch?" asked a by
stander. "The custard was illegant ; but,
by my sow, I b'lave the egg was a little too
long in the wather."
An individual advertised for "a wife" the
other day, and requested each applicant for
the situation to enclose her carte de visite.
One of his fair correspondents closed her re
ply in these terms : "1 do not enclose my
carte, for,though there is some authority for
putting a cart before a horse.I know of none
for putting one before an ass." -

MISS BBIGQ3' EHEUX
Mr. Perry was an old bachelor, and Misa
Briggs was an old maid. He lived in the
brick house on the hill, and she lived in the
cottage opposite, and they were mortal enemies.-
He despised her because she kept a
canary and two cats, and she hated him for
his affection for a hage mastiff aud a knock

horseflesh, merely for the purpose of annoy
They never spoke, but yet they managed
tokeep np a perfect warfare, by disagreea
ble manners and wrathful glances.
She sat hour by hour beneath the canary
bird in the window, with her cats perched
upon the sill, and her knitting in her hand
throwing glances of scorn to the opposite
side, where he, with cigar and newspaper,
and boots a few inches higher than his head

through her garden, destroying all her beau

Her little red cow broke through his en
closure and devoured hU turnips and cab
bages, and he led her houi, and informed
Miss-Briggs that a second offense would give
her a comfortable pasture in the pound.
For two years they lived and fought, and
no one could bring about peace between
them, it was a pity the neighbors all said,
for Miss Briggs was n dear little soul, and
there was not a finer man in the country
tiian .Mr. Perry."
"Julia, my love," said Mrs. Perkins, one
afternoon as she entered the cosy parlor, "I
am going to have a party, and I want you
to come down in the afternoon to tea. and
remain during the eveuing. Every one will

Miss Briggs thought the matter over.
Well, it would look a little like it, and bhe
would not have him think so for the world
:be conceited wretch I
Mrs. Perkins went home, and it was ar
ranged that Miss Briggs was to spend the
afternoon, and remain for the party.
She was a pretty little woman, and it was
always a puzzle to every one why she never
married. She had a round rosy face, clear
brown eye.?, and beautiful hair, and a sweet
mouth, and if she was near thirty there was
not a smarter woman in town.
She stood before the gilt-framed looking
glass in the little chamber, and fastened tier
lace collar over the neck of her maroon col
ored dress, with a plain gold brooch, and
began to think she looked very well. There
was a bright healthy flush upon her cheek
and her eyes were full of light and beauty.
Sho walked into Mrs Perkins' sitting
room, and she found her awaiting her with
a smiling face. She thought t-he must be iu
a very good humor, but said nothing, allow
ing the good lady to smile as long and pleas
antly as she wished.
She understood it all when supper time
came, and Mr. Perkins entered followed by
Mr. Perry. This was a well laid plan to
make the two become friends.
Miss Briggs bit her lips, and inwardly
vowed that nothing should tempt her to
give "that man" her band in friendship. She
He was placed directly opposite at the ta
bic, and many times forced to pass the bis
cuits cakes or preserves, and Miss Briggs
accepted them, although she declared to
Mrs. Perkins after supper, that they nearly
Before evening they both were persuaded
to overlook the horse and cow difficulty and
be civil, and Miss Briggs was frightened
when she found herself talking to him with
ease and pleasant familliarity.
The party was a success, and although the
sports were generally monopolized by the
younger portion, they found room for the
old maid and her enemy, and several times
she found herself doing the most ridiculous
things in the way of paying forfeits.
At the end of the evening Misa Briggs
was at the door ready to depart, when he
"Miss Briggs, I am going right up your
wav. Will you ride?"
Would she ride. and behind that old horse,
and beside that detestable man? She was
wondering whether she would or not when
Mrs. Perkins came and triumphantly led
her out, and packed her into the carriage.
It was as dark as pitch, and they had to
let the horse go his own way, and find it the
best he could. He did so very well until
they reached the cottage, and then he was

buggy and its precious con ten' s.

grave, one ran snouting inrougn the dark

What He Got. A committee appointed
by the Illinois Legislature to investigate
charges ot corruption against memb ers of
their body, were about giving up foiled, after
a most determined effort to find out some
thing rotten to report, when they fortunate
ly, as they thought, had a member brought
before them who admitted that he had re
ceived "something for. his vote." Ujmn
this admission they instituted a most search
ing inquiry which resulted as follows :
Question You have stated that you have,
on a certain occasion, received something
for your vote. Did the con mittee under
stand you correctlv ?
Answer Yes, sir.
Q. Have you received anything for your
vote on more than one bill ?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. About how many ?
A I cannot tell, without stopping to think
a little while.
Q. We will- waive that point for the
present. You will notfstatc to the commit
tee what you got for your vote The repor
ter will please record the answer in full, and
the witness will speak slowly, in order that
his answer may be taken down.
A. I got the curses of the whole com
munity. We may add. says the Harrisburg Tele,
egraph, that the Illinois legislator's expe
rience is not an uncommon on?.
Aek Yotj Ready? Are you ready for
life with all its multiplied cares and respon
sibilities, its trials and temptation.s,its aver
sities and afflictions, its sorrows and disap
pointments ? Are you ready for death, its
pains and weakness, its farewells and part
ings? Are you ready for the judgment, iu
review and its exposure of your inner life,
as well as your outward acts and spoken
words? Are you ready for that august tri
bunal where all must appear, to hear from
the lips of Christ a welcome to the joys of
heaven, or the door of banishmt nt which
shall consign the soul to endless darkness
and despair? Are vou ready to walk with
the saints in light, ready to enter upon the
enjoyments and enjoy the society of the bet
ter land ?
. If you a: e not ready for these things,
think most seriously how short tho time for
preparation for salvation ; remember that it
is aloue through repentance towards God
and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and a
holy life that you can get ready for the fu
ture. Let not another moment pass with
out giving your earnest attention to this im
portant work of life. Rest content with no
state of mind short of assurance.
A philosopher says that if anything will
make a womanewear.it is hunting her night
cap on a cold night, after the light has been
put out. '
Creditors are like corns ; they are always

The only way to get rid of them is to cnt

When are gloves unsaleable? When they
are kept on hand.
The Shortness of Time.
"Live as long as you may, the first twen
ty years of your life is the longest half of it :"
this was said by one of our modern writers,
and I doubt whether anything more true
was ever said by any man.
Don't you find, you that have reached mid
dle life, and you that are approaching middle
life that time passes much more quickly
thrn it used to pass ? Don't you find when
the evening comes and the day's work is
over, that it seems only a few moments since
the day's work began ? You may have been
very busy ; but when you return home to
your children it seems but a very short time
since you le!t them in the morning. Of
course th(;re is exceptional seasons, as when
health is bad, or when heavy grief presses
on you, but, on the whole, is it not now a
subject of constant remark that the days
pass with incredible rapidity.
And don't you remember when the case
was very different? Don't you remember
how l6ng they used to be, hen you yourself
was a child what a crowd of delightful in
terest multiplied and diversified the hours,
and how extensive the pro-.pect was when
you looked toward the future? The fact is,
you and your children are living lives of dif
ferent lengths in the same epacc of time.
The day is far longer to them than to you
They feel, when you think of it, as if its be
ginninz and et.ding were almost the same.
When they lay their little heads on the pil
low, weary with their t.veK'e hours play,
their toys broken their excitement about
trifles at an end their merry, their eager
quarrels, at length brought to a pause, those
twelve hours have made, to them, a very
period of their existence. Your toys, too,
perhaps are broken you, too have been oc
cupied with trifles your quarrels inconsid
erate but your longer, your more responsi
ble day, has been far shorter than theirs.
It miaht not be very difficult to explain
this. Our sense of the lapse of time doe
not depend entirely, or even chiefly, on the
duration of time itself. When impressions
are vivid, forcible, and fresh, the time
seems long. When the events of our livesaie
monotonous and uniform if ouly meanwhile
we are in diligent occupatiou the time
seems short. Any persson may test this
for himself by comparing pa.-sages of his
own experience. The few days spent in a
new place are longer than those that succeed
them; but soon tha novelty is past; and
the stream moves on, quietly and rapidly as
before. And no one, on the other side, needs
to be reminded that days of anxiety and

battle of Waterloo for instance, can you not
imagine, if you remember the circumstances
of that engagement, how different was the
length of that summer day to the great cap
tain, on the one band, on whom rested ail
the suspense and responsibility, and to seme
private soldier in the ranks, on the other,
actively occupied, and with nothing to think
of but. to le pron.pt and obey.
How desirable then to make sure of doing
something in the present that will really bear
good fruit in the future !
There is no rest:

A Cheerful Religion.
Let men be taught to know there is as
much religion in the good, robust, rejoicing,
enthusiastic singing of God's praiie, as in
the sedate and doleful style that ii usually
6!!ed the m i-it ltj'r,"nn il ; lut them know
that the earnest pi aver need not be a drawl
ing jeremaid ; let them feci that good gos
pel prt acbitiK may be in sprightly delivercy
ol pleasant truths, more than in the whining
reciiatiou ot inanities.; le'. them believe that
Christianity is a live thing, that it is in
'wnpathy with the active, rejoicing spirit of
ir h i n inity, mi l it. will be better com
mended to their acceptance.
Seriousness ought always to characterize
the Christian. But seriousness does not
consist in auilenness. moroscucss, or even in
the sobriety that drive away smiles and the
taste for rational pleasures. lie is most
serious who best brings an earnest, healthy,
rejoicing nature to the performance of his
duty. Men are most beautifully serious when
truthful smiles are playing on their lips and
when their whole countenances are lighted up
with a benignant joy.
It ought, therefore, to be the effort of pro
fessing Christians to pass through the world
as happily as to light it up and fill it with
joy. They ought to sing in the midst of
judgments, and to sing loudly and cheerily
amid their marvellous benefits. We pass to
a kingdom out of sadness and sorrow, where
there will be no sadness or sorrow, where
there will be no sorrow nor sighing. Pass
ing to that place, let us cultivate the spirit
that is to distinguish us when we arrive
there, and show that we do really begin our
heaven on earth.
