l bbLfcCT POETRY. I
Leaf by leaf the roses fall,
Drop by drop the springs run diy;
One by cue, beyond recall, '
Sua-mer beauties fade and die;
Rut the roses will Llooia again,
And the spring will gush anew,
Ia the pleasant April rain
And the Summer sua and dew.
So in the hours of deepest "loom
When the springs of gladness fail.
And the roses in the bloom.
Droop like maidens wan and pale,
We shall find some hope that lies
Like a silent gem apart,
Hidden far from careless eyes,
In the garden of the heart.
Some sweet hope to gladness wed,
That will spring afresh and new,
When griefs winter shall have lied,
Giving place to rain and dew
Some sweet hope that breathes of spring
Through the weary, weary time
Uuddiug for its blossoming,
In the tpirit's glorious clime.
An Adventure in SIsc t'ai

In a moment Fred was gone, and we set
our heads together to form a plan for 'ta

'that's the game, boys; now let us play
It devolved upon me to commence op
erations. Accordingly, 1 entered the car
in which we were informed the lovers
were. Sure enough, there they were.
1 he girl, thinking, I suppose, that she
mu.--t give her lover all the seat, had taken
a seat on his knees ; and he, for the purpose-
of protecting her, ot course, had
thrown his arm around her waist; and so
they sat, in real soft lovers' style.
All this 1 gathered at a gLnce. Step
ping up to them, I said :
"Why, J ones, what in the deuce are you
doing with this girl!"'
'1 he girl arose hastily, and seated her
self on the seat.

"you re a nute mistaken; my name ain't
Jones ; it's Harper. It never was Jones;
'tain't a goin' to be, nuther."
I merely shook my head, and passed cn
to another seat to sec the rest of the fun.
The irirl looked 'wild' alter 1 sat down :
but Jones uit'as Harper soon convinced her
that I was mistaken.
About the time they got to feeling right
well, in came Elliot Urcgg. Walking
to Harper, he accosted him with :
" H by, J ones, you here '! How did you
leave -your wife and babies V
"Now, see here, stranger, you ain't the
fust man that's called me Jones to-day, an'
1 reckon I must look awfully like him ;
but I ain't Jones, an' more'ii that, you
mustn't call ine Jones. I'hain't got a
wife, nor babies cither; but this ere gal
an' me is goin' to splice, an' then you can
talk about my wife, and I wouldn't won

might talk about the babies, too ; but you
mustn't call me Jones !"
This retort brought forth vociferous
laughter from the spectators, and it also
brought blushes to the face of the 'gal as
was goin' to be spliced.'
"Ah, Joucs," said Gregg, "you will re

rotlTEXESS and Trctk. Many per
sons plead a love of truth as an apolo-y
for rough manners, as if truth were never
gentle and kind, but always harsh, morose,
and forbidding. Surely good manners
and a good conscience are no more incon
sistent with each other than beauty and
innocence, which are strikingly akin, and
always look the better for companionship,
lloughncss and honesty are indeed some
times found together in the same person,
but he is a poor judge of human nature
who takes ill-manners to be a gu.uantee of
probity cr character, or suspects a stranger
to be a rascal, because he has the mannTra
of a gentleman.
