LOVE UP A TEEE.
There was m Kti in the apple tree,
A most delightful and cosy nook ;
And one afternoon about half past three.
Kittj sat there reading a bock.
Her fair head bare, with no hat to mar,
And her drew just showed one dainty boot
And he Aw her as he smoked his cigar.
And he canoe and stood at the ladder's foot.
Kitty half blushed, and smiled and said,
"Won't you come np and sit here now ?"
And Kitty's brother, a boy to dread,
Saw and determined to raise a row ;
So he crept softly under tbe tree,
Listening to all they had to say,
Did the impish brother, and,s!y as could be,
Seized ih ladder and bore it away.
Ibvn they saw him and she, with a frown,
Said. -Y hat will that awful boy do next V
And she called him the itU fcamp in town,
Tet I don't believe she wji rery much vexed.
Far her Tip half smiled, though her eyes half
As tuo saw tbe position of matters now.
And he came o?r ji.d sat by her side,
Leaving his place ou tbe opposite bough.
What could they tiu t They were captives there
Held ai if by an iron band;
Kitty tesied back her golden hair,
And reflectively leaned her chin on her band.
' If," said she, -'we for help should call.
They'd laugh to ace us in such a plight.
So we'd better stay bete till the shadows fall.
Or till some one or other comes in sight."
And some one did coaie. It was Kitty's papa.
Who past the tree hi footsteps traced.
And saw through the leaves a lighted cigar,
And a marculice a-tn around a feminine waist
Kitty looked down and blushed at one,
And then looked np and blushed at the other ;
Said her f:ithir, These are nice goings on?''
Said tbe, "It was all the fault of my brother "
What was the end ? I'll tell you that.
Some months after, 'mid silks and lace
And ribbons and ruches some ladies sat.
Who were all discussing the time and place
As to when so ran the debate
And where a certain wedding should be ;
And that impish I n.tber was beard to state,
It bad belter come iff on tbe apple tree."
HOW WE HUNG THE MAY BASKETS.
Of nil the merry old t-aion sports our
sturdy great grandfathers brought over with
Client frotn "Merry Kng'and," which thro'
.he whole year could compare with those of
JIa? with 4'May-Iay" and its flower
seeking, the ribboned "May-pole," and
the prelty flower-crowned May queen, and
last, but not least (in our own times), the
'"May baskets," those irolltcksotue flittings
iu the gathering duk !
Perhaps some of our town readers never
hun a May-basket possibly never heard
of such a thing! Sorry for them! They've
loi-t a deal of fun, and for their bene (it I'll
tryto explain a little.
A May-basket is well, I hardly know
liow to describe it; but 'tis sonirthiu'j to Ic
hvnyfin n door. Made of paper generally.
It contains almost anything, by way of
.small presents, you have a mii.d to put in
to it, together with your respects, best wish
es love, perhaps. It is hung after dark at
the door of anybody the lintger fancies.
W Ii;cli done, the hanger knocks and scam
pers. If a bo.-, it's a great disgrace to be
caught by a girl. Such a failure implies a
Wk of masculine spunk. On the other
hand, it the hanger be a girl, why, irhe
i'!)ero7) to be caught. It disgraces the
ly again not to catch her. And the re
ward of catching, as I've always understood
it (from a boy's stand point), is, if the par
tics can thus agree, a kiss in the dark, and
the young lady's society homeward.
flight sorry am I that all these jolly cus
toms are passing away. They are thought
not tpuite genteel enough for the young peo
ple of thi generation too rotnpish and
t)Ouncing. And are we happier in our
"sets," with our cold nods and airs of in
uilTrcnce, than when a whole village joined
h:mds around its May-pole? 'Veil, I hope
we arc. I
Iut T still know a little rustic neighbor
hood, avray back among the mountains,
where as yet tire boys ar.d girls have never
drfar;: that the dear old May games, with
'La-k; is" in the vejper, are not the very
F cf gentility. There 1 love to go back
ifor it used to my home, and when .May
night comet n; tnd pet out a certain boy

mage" up and down, with a troop of merry
tai r!s hard behind us girls who (I doubt if
I ought to tell it) will get over a five-rail
f. nee quicker Uhan you can say Jack llu bi
son. Sometimes, depute all our doubling
and dodging, we bring up on a brush heap,
and are cau"L: i:i woful plight; and then
we are p..ki .', pinched and laughed at.
'v, what i still more rar. by dint of hard
tampering wc catch, actually catch, the
agile sirens fliuing on b-'ore us. And then
the homeward walk it: the warm May eve
ning, vwith the broa.i. red ,,.oon peeping up
over the dark, spruce clad ridges; froggy
voices in the swamp below, and the whip
poorwiil chanting from the white lodges up
in the shrubby pasture. Quite romantic,
when done according to programme.
Sometimes, though, it was anything but
romantic Ah i I Mill remember a May
night when this same Tom Kd wards and I
were boys of twelve. It makes me shrug
to think of it yet. I wonder if two little
chaps ever did get into a scrape and catch
it to before !
As usual there was but one house in the
neighborhood where we really cared to bang
laskets. We hung them elsewhere out of
friendliness ; but those going to the Lynches
were more carefully prepared than the rest,
for there was Cad and Jess and Lorette,
especially Lorette. Perhaps Tom would
Have said "especially Jess."
Hut, bless you ! It was about as much as
a fellow's neck was worth to go there with a

quite got over my amazement that he should

lie was down on boys and all their "silly
quirks," and had a long-standing antipathy
to the Mny basket business. Kather than
to have fallen into his hands, we would have
taken "Alvarado's Leap," and risked it.
But the smiment which urged us on to
brave these dangers was a strong one
strong enough to carry us through tbem.
I remember that for a whole week before
the Mny night in question we had been
spending the nights together laying our
plans. But it was a tough problem. We
couldn't seem to manage it, till along toward
morning of the night before ; Tom waked
up all of a su lden.
"Kit, Kit," whispered he, 'Tve got it
now ! I've just thought how we can do it.'
"How?" exclaimed I, broad awake at the
"Vou know their old corn-crib, back of
the buildings, in the garden ? Well, we'll
hang 'em, and cut round through the gar
den, among the lilac bushes, and get iuto
the corn crib. Vou know the little door in
the end buttons on the outside and hasps on
the inside, We'll unbutton it, slip in, and
hasp it to; and in the night so.even if they
should come round into the gare'en, they
won't n:istrust we're in there."
'That's just the thing, Tom."
"Ves, and we'll run in there after every
one we've got three to hang, you know.
They'll think we've run off down the road
toward home, and chase on after us. We
can hear everything they say through those
great wide cracks in lb crib. O, won't it
be fun to hear them talk and wonder where
Fun alive ! We didn't sleep another wink
that night, the very thoughts of it were so
The next evening was warm but moon
less. "Just the right sort," said Tom, as we
were taking a last look at the baskets, to
see that the "fixin's" had not lost out. and
that the pins were in right for hanging
llieni to the door.
We waited till ten o'clock, however. It
would be better to let the elder Lynch go to
bed, if he would, before getting too near.
From a safe distance wc kept watch ; and
when at length a light had been seen to
appear and then shottly after disappear
from a window thought to belong to his
bed room, we entered the premises and
made our way steadily around the corn crib.
At that season it was nearly emptied of
corn. We unbuttoned the door and crept
in. It had rather a mousey smell, but, as
Tom had predicted, was just the place to
make our head quarters in.
We listened ; all was quiet.
"Now for it," -iid Tom ; leaving two of
the baskets there in the crib, we took Cad's
and stole round to the door. Tom was to
pin them on, and I was to knock; we had
brought an old mortar pestle for that pur
pose. "All ready," whispered Tom, pressing iu
Two ponderous knocks from the pestle '
and in the crack of a whip we were round
and safely housed in the old crib. Wc even
thought it took them some time to get ou
But they came out at last Cad. Jess, and
Lorette, with Dan, their little brother and
raced off down the road, while we lay and
They were wofully at fault, though, and
by and by came back, wondering and not a
"Haven't seen a thing of them," said
"Not a sound either," said Lorette.
"O, they're round somewhere," said Cad
taking down her basket. "Let's go in and
wait. They'll be back."
We let them wait some time, though.
"Shy is the word now," whispered Tom.
"They'll rush out the moment the pestle
S'rikes ntxt time."
But after all had been for a long time
still, we ventured round agaiu with the
"Guess we've outwinded thcni," said
Tom. "They're abed by this time."
v. But with the first stroke of the pestle the
door flew open, and out rushed all three of
the girls at a pop. Coming out of a bright
light, though they were unable to see us
quick enough. Dodping noiselessly back,
we scuttled away among the lilacs, and re
gained the crib once n.ore. Old Scoge
sprang out, barked, and took a turn thro'
the garden. Ve trembled ; he didn't h?p
pen to nose us out, though, but ran after
l'.tu and the girls, who were chasing down
the road again.
"A pretty tnug shave," muttered Tom,
drawing a long breath. And just then the
gruff paternal voice was heard demanding
from his bed chamber what all that noise
and rumpu was about that time of night.
Here Mother Lynch probably informed him
of the day of the mouth ; for alter a pause
he snorted, "First day o' May! Little scul
lions ! I'd like to get hold of 'em."
Prayerfully hoping he wouldn't, we wait
ed for the girls to come back, which they
at last did, utterly non plussed at their
failure to get the least clue to our whereabouts.
"I know it's Kit and Tom." said Jess,
"but where did they go to so quick?"
"That's tbe question," whispered Tom.
"They'll hang another, I guess, said Lo
rette ; I haven't had any yet."
The Iittla minx doubtless knew she had
good reason to expect one.
Here the father was heard ordering them
into the house and to bed.
"This time's the rubber," whispered
Tom. "I Jo hope Old Jock won't come
out, or Scoge either ; he almost smellcd us
We waited a full half hour. There was
too much at stake to make time any object.
Then, with trembling and palpitation, we
edged round for the third and last time ;
but ere Tom could pin on the basket, the
door was opened with a jerk, and a savage
grab made with a big brawny hand. We
sprang away like cats, traversed the garden
and dived into the crib. Scoge was after
us. too, bin great ugly head entered with us
but a knock on the nose with the pestle made
him withdraw it ; and we got the door to,
and hasped it. But the racket thus made
bad betrayed us ; and Scoge, too, vras now
worrying at the crib.
"Gone into the corn crib !" shouted little
Dan, running up.
"Iuto my corn crib !" exclaimed his fath
er, stumbling out through the currant buth
es. "Hold 'etn, Scoge ! Hold 'cral"
"We're in for it now !" gasped Tom,
"and uo mistake."
But the girls didn't come out : that was
"And they've hasped the door, too,"
cried Dan, trying it.
"O, they waut to stay, do they?" chuck
led the old man. "Button the door, Dan.
They shall stay till to-morrow. Whose boys
are they ?"
Dan didn't know.
"Whose boys are ye?"
We kept quiet ; it wouldn't mend matters
to confess now.
"Won't talk, will ye? Go get the goad
stick, Dan. I'll make 'em talk."
Dan brought the goad, a long white oak
one, with a fearful brad, made from an old
al. We knew that goad-stick, and shud
dered. "Vou little skites !" growled Old Jock,
thrusting the goad in through the wide
chinks, and prodding at random. "See if
you won't talk !" Tom got the first pricks,
and squawked and screeched, in spite of
"Old Zack Edward's boy, if Uive,"mut
tered the old wretch. "Voice ju?t like old
"O, don't, father, don't hurt them fo!"
pleaded Jess from the window.
"Vou gn to lwd. rnl. Vow. wKo' ' oilier
one?" bradding recklessly into the corner
where I was crouching.
Heavens! how I yelled !
"Oh, ho," laughed he, "theold Deacon's
son. sure's the world. Might have brought
hitn up better." Bradding again. "Take
that, you Deacon's son! How does that
"Now don't, futher; please don't!" cried
Cad, coming into the garden.
"Go back, gal! Step!"
"Now," continued he, with a few fare
well prods at us, "you stay here till morn
ing." And with this pleasant good night
he left us, cribbed.
This was rather rough usage from a man
whom we had fond hopes of making our
father-in-law. certainly. But we had to
stand it. We couldn't even get out of the
crib ; for it was a staunch one, and couldn't
be burst. And that old button was a most
incorruptible one. No amount of fingering
through the cracks could stir it a hair's
"Kit, we're in a dreadful scrape," said
"A dreadful scrape," said L Several
hours passed. We didn't say much; we
were profoundly taken down, and sat look
ing at the stars through the cracks. Despite
the general misery of the situation, I was
dropping off to sleep, when a whisper from
Tom roused me. A little dusky figure was
stealing out through the lilacs, stopping to
listen at every step.
"It's Jess." saitl Tom.
"Lorette," said I.
And it was Lorette. Tip toeing noise
lessly up to the door, she hastily turned
the button, then darted away through the
garden into the house.
It is needless to add that the good turn
(turn of the button) was fully appreciated,

Origin of the Eose.
The rose has many fabulous origins. Some
state it to hare sprung from the blood of
Venus. The Mohommedins say that the
sweat of the prophet was the source from
which it grew ; while the "Ghebers believe
that when Abraham, their great prophet,
was thrown into the Ere by order of Nimrod,
the flames turned instantly into a bed of ro
ses, upon which the children sweetly re)
posed." The Christian legend on the same
subject is given by Sir John Mandeville. It
is to the effect that a fair maiden of Beth
lehem was slandered, and condemned to be
burned ; but when the firs began to burn
around her she prayed to our Lord that, as
she was not guilty of that 6in, He would
help her and make her innocence manifest
to men. Then was the fire quenched, and
the burning brands became red rose trees
full of roses. "And these were the first
roses, Loth white and red, that ever atiy
Hoses have always figured largely in Chris
tian tradition from the time when they were
found in the tomb of this Blessed Virgin
until the institution of the rosary by St.
Dominica, in the thirteenth century the
beads of the rosary now in use having been
symbolized by red and white roses. Of
their connection with the "War of Hoses"
it is unnecessary to speak ; but it may be
mentioned that at Towton, in Yorkshire,
where one of the most disastrous battles of
that time was fought, there are groups of
rosebushes in the "bloody meadovs,"which
arc said to mark the graves of the slain ;
and local tradition states that these roses
will only grow in that field, and that it is
impossible to make them grow if removed
thence. It is stated, however, that a gard
ner at Tadeaster has bad one growing iu his
garden for four or five years; so that the
latter part of this traditiou is scarcely
"founded on fact."
How a Clerk Got Promoted.
The Troy Times tells this story of Colo
nel James H. llojker, an eccentric charac
ter, who died in that city some twenty years
"A reinarkklle man was Colonel Hooker,
and very eccentric withal. At times he
would fairly boil over with passion, and was
very violent in his speech and action. Yet
he was a just man, and directed his fury
against only what he believed to be wrong
and rascally. It is related of him that hav
ing a dispute with one of his clerks, the
latter would not yield the point in issue to
him, whereupon the Colonel undertook to
put his stubborn employee out of his office.
But the cleik was too much for the irate
Colonel, and in the inrw.!oi tho old man was
Uil upon 1 1 is back, and his countenance
rather unpleasantly tapped, liaising from
his position, he proceeded to wash his bat
tered countenance, brushed his clothes care
fully, and, seating himself, asked the victo
rious clerk to come to him and report. Said
he : "A pretty thing you've done, sir; got
yourself into a bad scrape ; committed as
sault and battery; licked your employer.
This shows that there's some stuff in you,
miserable sinner, and now, you infernal
scamp, I am going to pay you for it. You
are discharged from the desk you now hold,
and to morrow morning I want you to take
a place next to me, and hereafter act as my
confidential clerk, with your salary increased
$200. That's all ; now go about your busi
ness." The clerk thus promoted held the
confidential position assigned him many
years during the remainder of the Colonel's
lifetime, and never had to whip his etnploy
et again to get an advance of salary."
A young man wants to know what busi
ness he had better go into that will enable
him to occupy a high position in society.
Let him go into the roofing business. In
that trade a smart man will soon get to the
top of the ladder.

upper part of ike loin, surrounded by fat, and
consisting of three parts, vis : the Anterior, tbst
Interior, and the Exteribr.
The anterior absorbs Interior eonsista of tis
sues or veins, which serve as a depoett for tbe
urine and convey tt to the exterior. The eat
rior is a conductor tiro, terminating in a single
tube, ad called the Ureter. The ureters are con

The bladder la composed of various coverings
or tisiucs. divided into parts, vis: tbe Tpper, the
Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many bare a desire to
urinate without the ability, others urinate with,
out tbe ability to retain. Tb is frequently occurs
To cure these affections, we must bring into ac

rious functions. If they ere neglected, Gravel or
Dropsy may ensue.

the bladder, but allowed to remain; it becomes

II. T. H El. bold. Druggist:
DeiR Sir : I bare 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 under tbe treat
ment of the tnot eminent Physicians, experien
cing but litile relief
Having seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family phy?(c'n Iu
regard to using your Extract iluchd.
I did this because 1 had used all kinds of ad
vertiied remedies, and had found them worthless,
and sotue quit injurious ; in 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 trie id use your remedy.
As you advsrticed tbat it was composed of bucbu.
mbebs abd Juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician as an aic'ellent combination, and,
aith his advice, after an examination of the art!'
ele, and consulting again with the druggist; t
concluded to try it. 1 commenced its ue about
eight months ago, at which time I waa confined
to my room. From tbe f-rst bottle I waa astonish
ed and gratified at the heueflcia! effect, and after
using it three weeks was able to walk out. I felt
much like writing you a full statement of my casa
at tbat time, but thought my improvement night
only be temporary, and therefore concluded te
defer and see if ii would effect a perfect cure.
knowing then it would be of greater value to on
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report tbat a cure is effected
after using tbe remedy frr five months.
I have not used any now for three trbnths, and
feel as well in all respects aa I ever did.
Your liochu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice toni.iard invigorator of the
system. I do not mean tu be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in such affections.

he refers to tbe following gentlemen:
