VOL 17-NO. 38:
The gran on the hillside ii springing,
The cowslips are shining like gold ;
The robins are merrily sieging
A gladness that cannot be told.
Comeiut whera the sunshine is flooding
The t alleys with glory to-day.
And sing with the birua and tiie breeiea,
To welcome the beautiful May.
The wind from the blossoficj orchards
Briags up the low hum o; the bees,
And the shouts of the bare-footed children
At play in the shade of the treei.
Bins, birds, for the winter is over !
Sing, birds, for the summer is sweet !
And laugh ft your pixy, little children,
For abih-hool and summer are fleet.
Angry words are lightly spoken.
In a rash and thoughtless hour;
Brightest links in life are broken
By their deep, insidious power !
Hearts inspired bj warmest feelicg,
Ne'er before by anger stirred.
Oft are rent part human healing
By a s ing le angry word .
Poison drops of care and sorrow,
Bitter poison drops re they,
Wearing for the coming morrow
Saddest memories of to-day.
Angry words, O let them never
From the tm.goe unbridled slip ;
51 ay the heart's best impulse ever
Check them ere they soil the lip.
Love is much too pure and holy.
Friendship is too ancred far.
For a moment's reckless folly
Thns to desolate and mar.
Angry words are lightly spoken.
Bitterest thoughts are rashly stirred,
brightest links in life are broken
By a single angry word .

Years ago. I was invited to spend the
month of March with a faciily with whom
I enjoyed the most intimate relations. This
family consisted of three persons Mr. and
Mrs. Linden, an 1 their daughter Marie, a
lovely girl of nineteen.
Marie wn.-? to be married on .he 20th of
the month, and it was the desire cf both
mother and daughter that I should spind a
much time with them as 1 could previous
to the event. It !ias toen so often asserted
that there can be no rea! love between wo
men, that the saying has come to bo accept
ed as truth. I have n. heart to-niyht, to
make any attempt at refuting this absurd
error; but that it is an error my love for
M-irie Linden would be convincing proof in
my own heart, though I had never loved
A popular writer hss said that "to have
a free that can look beautiful for those who
love it. on whom it looks with love, is
enough for ordinary. women." Such a face
had Marie Linden ; yet, deirly as I loved
hfr, I doubt if I can convey any clear im
pressioD of it to the reader. Hazel eyes.
auburn hair, and a bright complexion, tell
nuthing it was not in form or color that
the beauty lay. Perhaps it was because the
face was so sweet and true, or perhaps it
was in the eyes, which were serene to the
ry depths an inward serenity, which
made u impossible to associate anything
akin Xo sorrow with uiy possessor I know
not and must proceed with tny story.
Mr. Linden's bouse was situated on a
crest of rising ground, about a mile distant
from an old sea port town. It commanded
a variety of scenery, which must have satis
fied the most difficult taste. The hoiiK
faced the north, fronting the broad bay,
which swept into the open sea. 15etwot.,
the bay and the house a broad expanse of
level ground extended for miles along the
coast. On the southern s.ds were richly I
wooded slopes, with stretches of meadow j
between, where, m the season, the ripened J
grain waved like a billowy sea. The east
side commane'ed a view of tae towa ; here
distance lent its sual enchantment to the
picture. Midway between the town and
Mr. Linden's house, ft xd the gray church

buried. The white columns which 1
marked the graves of Mrs. Linden's par
ents, and one daughter, who had died young,
were on a clear day, distinctly visible from
The month passed rapidly, as months al
ways do when people are absorbed. Marie
was to marry the man of her own choosing,
and a man that her parents would have cho

prehended the world. The love of Marie
Linden and George Percival was fiat con

of troe lore never runs smooth. During

J were filled with the beauty and aristocracy
of both town and country. Never was
there a more beautiful bride than Marie
Percival. Never was there a happier grooju
than her husband. Never was there a
gayer company than was assembled that
night under Mr. Linden' roof. Yet most
of the guests have probably retained only
such recollection of the evening as an un
usually pleasant party might leave upon the
But for me, it is branded on my memory
with a strength which years have had no
power to dim. The almost summer warmth
of the night, the blue sky without t cloud,
the stars, the full moon, which lit up the
old gray church, aud the two white columns.
Within there was the bewildering light, the
perlume of the flowers, the music of the
waltz andthe rapid whirl of the waltzers,
as they floated past the open window, where
I stood gazing attentively upon the two
pictures one without an 1 one within. It
was there that Maria joined me, chiding
me, in her pretty girlish way, for not join -ing
in the waltz. I told her that I had been
better entertained ; then, putting the lace
curtains further back, I drev her close to
the window, and we stood tlure, band clasp
ed ii. hand, for at least five minutes ; she
gazing out upon the beautiful night, talking
ofjGeorge, and of her expected trip, with
sometimes a loving word for myself; I, ga
zing upou her, thinking Kow well her bri
dal robe became her, when I saw the color
slowly fading out from her sweet face. I
thought it was the moonlight, and was go
ing to draw the cut tains, when she stopped
me. Pointing to the monuments in the
churchyard, which were as visible as at
uid'day, "How many are there?" she said.
"Two, dear," I answered. '"You know
there MHr were more."
"T count thieei" the said.
I turued n:y eyes upon the nnntiments,
ab?:ost expecting to see a third ; but to me
there were only two. Yet I felt the hand
which was clasped in mine grow Cold and
rigid, while her face had become like the
marble upon which her eyes were so intent
ly fixed. I strove to draw her from the
window it wa impossible. I entreated
her to speak to tut it was of no avail.
Thoroughly alarmed, I said I would call
'"No, no, not hit," she answered, while
a perccptiblo shudder ran through her
But his name had roused her from her
strange lethargy, or trance, or whatever it
might have been.
"I was reading the words," she said.
"What words, Marie?" I answered.
"You know the words on the monuments ;
and if you did not, you could not read them
at such a distance."
She replied, "1 am speaking of tl.e third
one ; it is tailcr lhau the other two, and tiie
words are eo di.-tirict : 'Sacred to the mem
ory of Marie Percival, who died February
5th, 18 , aged nineteen years and eleven
"Hush, Marie !" I said. "I cannot hear
yo-a talk so;" and happily for me, Mr. Per
cival, who was looking for his bride, discov
ered her at this moment. A few rapid steps
brought him to her side.
"Why, Marie," he said, "you areas pale
as one of Horace Walpole's ghosts bah !
it is this ghastly moonlight !"
He drew the enrtains together, and I saw
the color come back to her face as he bore
her away. But I knew it had gori from
mine. I knew there was an unearthly pal
lor on my own face, as I sat there with my
back to the moonlight ; and still the musi
cians pliyed on it was Weber's waltz, and
it seemed as if the - waltzers would never
tire; tny brain reeled, and circled, and quiv
ered, and still they played on, and still the
waltzers waltzed then Marie and her hus
band floated by, the merriest among them
Am I the victim of a dream ? I said. Did
Marie Percival stand by my side a moment
ago, reading the insiyiption upon her own
tomb? was that true? or is this true ? for
at that moment It did not seem to me that
both could be true. Just as I was losing
lue power to Mjve this or 0Ler
tion, the waltz ended and supper followed
Shortly after the party broke up, and Marie
kissed me good night, without making any
allusion to the singular episode which had
made such a painful impression on my

but it was in reality good bve, for as they
were to leave by five o'clock the next moi n-
ing, I did not expect to see her again until
her return. This would be in about four
weeks, and I had promised to remain with
her parents until that time. Cut fate deui.
ded otherwise. A few lines from an only
brother informed me that he had just deci
ded to carry out a long cherished wish, which
was to go with his wife to Europe. It was
their desire that I should accompaoy them.
As we were to start in less than a week, I
was obliged to hurry home.
I left a few lines for Marie, stating that
I would write to her as soon as possible, and
let tier know where to address a letter to

I wrote frequently to Marie and her
mother, but my brother had no fixed plan,
and as we were constantly on the move, it
was impossible tot me to receive any re
plies. We remained abroad until the following"
April, a little more than a year. The day
after bur arrival home, ' I started for Mr.
Linden's. I cannot exactly tell what my
feelings were as the cars neared the old
town. Certainly I wrfs not as calm as I
would have been without that disturbing
vision. But if any one had asked nie if I
believed in the possibility of its truth, I
should have answsred, "No."
It was four o'clock when I arrived at the
end of my journt y. A few minutes' walk
brought me to the house. I fkng the bell,
which was answered by an bid woman whom
I had frequently seen during my previous
"Come in," she said. "Mr. and Mrs.
Linden are in Europe ; you did not know
"I know nothing," I replied quickly; "I
have just returned from Europe myself."
I could not ask about Marie ; but I arose
and went to the window, the one that look
ed out upon the churchyard, and I saw
yes, reader, I saw the third monument ; in
ten minutes I stood before it. With a brain
too paralyzed to admit of surprise, or any
other feeling, I read: "Sacred to the mem
ory of Marie Percival, who died February
5th, IS , aged nineteen years and eleven
I don't know how long it was before I

stupor into which I had fallen. Becoming
alarmed at my long stay, she had conic out

ever know. I will tell it in as few words as
On that day Marie, with her husband, and
two or three other young friends, had gone
out on the bay, as was their frequent cus
tom when the weather was fine. I gathered,
from what the woman said, that the day
had been unusually calm, but that a sud
den squail had 'thrown the boat against a
low reef of slimy, weed covered rocks,
which ran out into the water. It did not
upset the boat, but Mrs. Percival was
thrown out. The accident happened on th
seaward side of the rooks, and though Mr.
Percival was a good swimmer, and remain
ed in the water until he was drairgcd out by
one of the party, jet Mrs. Percival was not
found until some hours afterward.
I have only io add, that Mr. Linden, who
was an Englishman, took his wife to Eu
rope, hoping that iu change of scene she
might recover from' the shock. But she
died thortly afterward, and Jas buried
thtre. Mr. Linden has never returned to
Ot Mr. George Percival I know nothing.
Whether he married again, or whether he is
still mourning fot his lost bride, I cannot
say. But, reader, I have told you a true
story the solution I lcive for you.
The Story of a Pet Bird.
The following charming account of a pet
bird, illustrating iu a remarkable degree the
power of kindness, was written by the own
er to a female friend ; and that friend, as we
think, very properly has furnished a copy
for publication. All who attended the last
meeting of the American Pomolcgical Con
vention, held in Philadelphia, will remem
ber the wonderful collection of fruits, and
especially will they remember the remarka
ble exhibition of grapes, from the fruit es
tablishment of HeMj B. Trimble, of West
Chester, rennsyivania. lo that lady we
are indebted for the s'ory of this little spar
row her pet Bessie.
It is well known by others as well as or
noihologists that feruLie birds will return
year alter year to the same home ; but has
it ever been proved before, that the same
couple of birds remain true to each other
as long as both do live? Or has it ever been
known before that both the instinct for mi
gration and the affection lor mate and little
ones have been overborne by an attachment
to a human friend ?"'
Those lamilliar with the Song Sparrow
(Fringilla Melodia) will recognize it at once
in Miss Trimble's account. We bein to
hear it now (early in March) the first of
the singing birds of spring. The note is a
short one, but exquisitely beautiful exceed
ed only by the melody of the wood robin.
Sometimes they ard so numerous about
country gardens that in the early mornings
there will be a perfect ground-swell of mel
ody probably one of the sweetest sounds
this side the stars.
"I atu no ornithologist ; but I suppose
my little pet was a song sparrow a little
bird of very Quaker like plumage shades
of brown and gray, but as trig and neat as
any little bird could well be.
"The winter of was very cold. A
young friend who was then living with us
was coming home one evening, and found
this little bird lying on a snowdrift, appar
ently frozen to death ; but holding it in his
hands a few moments, found there was a
little fluttering motion ot the heart. lie
ran up stairs to the parlor register, and by
warmth aud kino'nrss brought it to. It was
some days, however, before she recovered
entirely. She was then turned loose in the
conservatory, where she seemed perfectly
happy, darting in and out among my flow
ers. At first, we heard only timid, low
notes from her ; but as she became accus
tomed to us, and knew she had nothing to
fear, there was often one gush of melody
"In the spring the birds began to returrl
to their summer homes birds of her own
kind, as well as others ; but she paid no
heed to them for some time. However, one
day we were startled by a long, loud cry from
her, so unusual that every one ran into the
conservatory to see what Imd happened. A
little bird was bn the outside trying to get
in. The window was opfened ; she flew to
meet him ; and such a joyous meeting it
was. The meeting of human lovers after a
long separation could not more plainly tell
the story of affection. ' Soon a snow squall
came up, and she was too tender to breast
it, and tapped at the window to be taker! in.
She remained very contentedly until the
weather was quite settled. Now came her
trouble. He wanted the nest to be built in
a cedar tree some 20' feet fronj the house ;
the would not gi. lie perched himself in
the tree and sang his most charining melo
dies ; while she, on the top cf the smoke
house, near the house, answered him just
as sweetly. But she would not budge from
the position she had taken. After the sec
ond day's maneiiveiing, he began to give
in little by little approaching the hduse.
Filially they compromised the matter by
building the nest in a gooseberry bush, near
the smoke-house. This was not to her mind;
but still it was better thau the far-off cedar
"In time four pretty little brown birds
made their appearance. As soou as they
were out of the nest she coaxed them to
the house, where her feed table and bath
tub were always ready for her. Such a
pretty, happy little faniily they were !
"The next nest was just where the want
ed it in a jasmine bush trained around one
of the parlor wi.idbws. From turn nest
came three little birds.
"Her table and bath tubs were agaiti
brought into tho urir.ry Ko DovDn
now being out of doors. The side sashes
were always open, and she brought all the
family to feed and bathe just as it pleased
her; and the glass doors into the parlor be
ing open, they would fly through the house
as if it was of out doors.
"Cold weather came once more, aad the
mate aud young birds disappeared ; but
Bessie did not go. She tapped at the win
dow, and was again warmly welcomed to
her quarters amongst the flowers in the con
servatory. "Here she spent another gay, happy win
ter; and it was a constant source of pleas
ure to us to watch her pretty, cunning ways,
and listen to her sweet songs.
"In the next spring (1S57) Bessie's own
er moved away, and she fell into my posses
sion a very welcome legacy.
"As before, the birds returned in the
spring; but Bessie was quite indifferent to
them all. But one day, while wc were at
the dinner-table, we heard what seemed to
be a loud, wild scream of j ty. With one
accord, all rushed up stairs to the conserva
tory ; arid there, sure enough, was the mate
again. This was repeated every spring while
she lived. Whenever we heard that pecu
liar, wild, joyous commotion, we knew that
her mate had come ; and, on going to see;
always found him thefe.
"One year they raised three broods of
birds ; and it was not an uncommon thing,
at that time, to see the parent birds and the
twelve young ones all feeding at the same
table the youugest yet so young as to be
led by the old one.
"This little pet was with us seven year.
We never doubted her indentity ; but a
dipt feather and a defective toe made this
"The same great joy wai manifested to
ward her mate at each annual return in the
spring ; but the last one it seemed almost
beyond expression it even attracted the at
tention of the neighbors. I remember one
day an uncle of mine called Cs to look at
them. They would sicg to each other, bow
their heads, flap their wings, fly down on
the ground, roll over and over ; in shortj
they acted as if they were nearly crazy with
happiness. Two or three days after thi I
heard a flutter in the conservatory; and. go
ing to see wht was the matter, I found my
little pet lying in her feed basin, in a spasm.
I took her up, stroked and patted her ; and,
as the fit passed off, she "estled down in my
hand, and turned her head up to look at me.
The bright eyes were swollen and bloodshot.
Soon she had another spasm, and another
and another. Then her little feet flew out,
and soon she lay dead in my hand. How it
all comes back to me as I write 1 It 6eemed
as if a dear little pet child had been sud
denly snatehed from us; and as to the poor
little mate, anything moie heartbroken I
never saw. There was no more dashing
about through the house and out among the
trees ; no more gay sings ; but, instead, he
moped about, with now and then a little
low wail, that seemed more like "weep,"
"v?ep," tharranythlnt: else. In the fall he
went awajr as usual ; but we never saw him
again to know him.
"Bessie's conduct toward me wag often
very amusing. Traits of character were
manifested that instinct will not explain. If
in the mornings I should begin watering my
plants, or other work, before I had attended
to her wants, she would follow me about,
scolding and darting down at me as if she
intended to peck my eyes out ; and this
would be continued until I would quit all
else and attend to her. But after breakfast
she would come out to where I was, perch
on the nearest tree or bush, and give me
my pay iu ou of her sweetest songs. Independent.

The Kidneys are two in number, situated at the
upper part of tbe loin, surrounded by fat. and
consisting of three parts, vis : the Anterior, the
Interior, ant the Exterior.
The anterior absorbs Interior consists of tis
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for the
nrine and convey it to the exterior. The exte
rior is a conductor also, terminating in a single)
tube, ad called tbe I'reier. The ureters are con

or tiatuet, divided into parts, vis: the I'pper, the
Lower, the Nervous, and tbe Mucous. Tbe upper

urinate without theabilitv, others urinate with
out the ability to retain. This frequently occurs
To cure three affections, we must bring into ac

Dropsy may ensiie.
Theredaer must also be male aware, that how;
ever slight may be the attack, it is sure to affect

or improper treatment of tbe kidneys These or
gans being weak, the water is not expelled from
the bladder, but allowed to remain; it becomes
feverith, and sediment forms. It is from this de

H. T. IIei.mbui.p, Ihuggift:
Deab Sin : I neve been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, and been nndertbe treat
ment of tbe most eminent Physicians, experien
ce. g but little relief
Having seen your preparation extctuiTcIy ad
vertised, I consulted with rr.y family phyricinn in
regard to using your Extract Buchu.
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found thein worthless,
and aotue quite injurious ; iu fact, I despaired of
ever getting well, and determined to use no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you kdvertised that it was composed of buchu,
mbebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me aud
tny physician as an excellent combination, and,
a :th his advice, after an examination of tbe arti
cle, end conulting again itb the druggist,!
concluded to try it. i commenced iu ue about
eigbt months ago, at which time I was confined
to my room Prom the f rst bottle I was astunieh
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect, and after
using it three weeks was able to walk out. I felt
much like writingyou a full statement of my cisi
at that time, but thought tqy improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded lo
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater value to you
and more satisfactory to me
I am cow able to report that a cure is effected
after tiling the remedy for fits months.
I have not used any now for three u.onths. and
feel as well in all respects rt I ever did.
Your Ruchu being devoid of any rafleasant
taste and odor, a nice tonfc and istigorator of the
system, I do not raean tv be without it whtnever
occasion may require its use in such affections.
