I . .em the Atlantic Monthly, January
SONG OF NATURS.-
Mine are the night and morning, ..
The pits of air, the gulf of space,
The sportive sun, the gibbous moon,
- The innumerable days.
I hide in the blinding glory,
I lurk in the pealing seng,
I rest on the pitch of the torrent,
In death new-born and strong. -
No numbers have counted my tallies,
No tribes my house can 611, .
I sit by the shining Fount of life,
And pour the deluge still.
And ever by delicate powers
Gathering along the centuries
Froin race on race'the fairest flowers,
My wreath shall nothing miss.
And many a thousand summers
My apples ripened well,
And light from meliorating stars
With firmer glory fell.
I-wrote the past in characters
Of rock and fire the scroll,
The building in the coral sea,
The planting of the coal.
And thefts from satellites and rings
And broken stars I drew,
And out of spent and aged things
I formed the world anew.
What time the via kept carnival, .
Tricked out in star and Hower,
And in cramp elf and saurian forms
They swathed their too much power.
Time and Thought were my surveyors,
They laid their courses well,
They boi'ed the sea, and baked the layers
Of granite, marl, and shell,.
But him—the man-child glorious,
Where tarries he the while?.
The rainbow shines his harbinger,
The sunset gleams his smile.
My boreal lights leap upward,
Forthright my planets roll,
And still the, man-child is not born,
' The summit of the whole.
Must timo and tide forever run ?
Will never my winds go sleep in the West?
Will never my wheels; which whirl the . sun
And satellites, have rest?
Too much of donning and doffing,
Too slow the rainbow fades;
I weary of my robe of snow,
My leaves, and my cascades.
I tire of globes and races
Too lung the game is played;
What, without him, is summer's pomp,
Or winter's frozen shade?
I travail in pain for him,
My creatures travail and wait ;
His couriers come by squadrons,
He comes not to the gate.
Twice I have moulded an image,
And thrice outstretched my hand,
Made one of day, and one of night,
Aud one of the salt-sea-sane.
I moulded kings and saviours,
And bards o'er kings to rule;
But fell the starry ittiluence short,
The cup was never full.
Yet whirl the glowing wheels once more,
And mix the bowl again,
Seethe, Fate I the ancient elements,
Heat, cold, dry, wet, and peace and pain
Let war and trade and creeds and song
Blend, ripen race on race,—
The sunburnt World a man shall breed
Of all the zones and countless days.
No ray is dimned, no atom worn,
My oldest force is good as new,
And the fresh rose on yonder thorn - -
Gives back the bending heavens in dew.
BORROWING AND LENDING;
"No," said Mr. Bray, looking up from
the newspaper he was r jading; and speak.
ing with unusual sharpness of tone.
A young man, one of his olerks stood
"Do you understand me ? No—l said
no! Send Mr Carleton word that I nei
ther borrow nor lend."
The clerk had hesitated. about.sending
back the rough refusal of Mr. Bray, to
accommodate a neighbor with the loan of
a couple of hundred dollars, within an
hour of bank•closio n ,e , even on an explan
ation that he was "short on a note." But
at this emphatic confirmation ofthe first
refusal, ho turned from his employer and
went forward to where the messenger of
Mr. Carlton awaited 'an answer.
"I'm tired of this eternal. borrowing,"
said Mr. Bray to himself, in justification
of his angry refusal to accommodate a
neighbor. •" Why don't be make timely
provision for his notes as:l do, and not go
money-bunting at the eleventh hour? I'm,
not going to reduce - my bank balance to
meet' his careless deficiencies. " There is
too much of this idle dependence among
traders to suit my notions of things."
But these words of justification did not
bring- the,mind of Mr. Bray into a state
of calm self-satisfaotion. 'Reason did not
approve his histily uttered denial; and
self-respect was hurt by this sudden ebu
tition of anger.
14 Send Mr. Carlton word that I neither
borrow nor lend."
"I needn't just have said that I" Mr.
Bray was already in a repentant mood.

Al me ! How blinding is sudden anger !
For awhile, Mr. Bray sat communing with
himself, and then taking up a pen drew
check for two hundred. dollars. Calling
to, his clerk, he, said,
" Here, Thomas, run with this. to Mr.
Carlton." . •
The young man took the .cheek and
went out hurriedly. lie tame hick in a
few minutes with the check in his hand.
• " Way didn't take it ?" asked Mr.
Bray, his face deepening in color as he
put the question.
" He said he was much obliged to you,
but Mr. Armour had accommodated.him:'-
My. Bray in a very qpiet manbet, tore
the cheek into small fragment's.- He felt,
bsdly. Mr. Agnew had the reputation of
being the roughest, most unaccommodat
ing man in the neighborhood; while he
took pride in the thought of being held in
very different estimation. Even Mr. Ag
new had exceeded hint in amiable com
pliance and prompt business courtesy.
lle felt rebuked and humbled.
"0, dear ! . I wish I bad a little decent
self-control!" he said sharply to himself.
"This quick feeling,. and hasty action
therdfrom aro alway:, getting me into some
kind of trouble."
As Mr. Bray walked homeward, after
.store that afternoon, lsSaw
Mr. Carlton approaching at the distance
of half a block ahead of him. ' He was
conveniently near the corner of a street,
and so taking the Sam stones be .crossed
over, and thus avoided meeting his neigh
" I don't like this," he said in some htv
miliation to himself, as he breathed a lit
tle more freely. " Skulking like a crim
inal don't suit me at all ! Why should I
fear to look any man in the face ?"
Mr.. Bray was nsually a cheerful man at
home ; though he sometimes darkened
the home-light for a season through fits of
sudden passion that soon subsided. But
even the briefly ruling tempest leaves,
usually, some mighty traces of its course
that requires many days of sunshine, gen
tle rains and refreshing dews to obliterate.
It was so with the tempest - of Mr. Bray's
too easily awakened anger.... It . never
darkened the sky; nor swept fiercely - along
the earth without leaving its ugly marks
behind. . - I
But , usually ho wag cheerful in his fam
ily, bringii g home with him the bright,
warm Siinshino. It was not so, however,
on the present occasion. The little act of
discourtesy to Mr. Carlton had not only
shadowed his feelings, but left his mind
disturbed. He way just jna state to be
annoyed by the merezt trifles. -
Two little boys*ere playing in the pas
sage as he came in from the street. .At
the very moment of his entrance one of
them hurt the other by accident. The
latter screamed out, and, under the pas
sionate impulse of the moment,- charged
his brother with strikitig him. In 'a dif
ferent state of mind Mr. Bray would have
tried a little moral•suasron in the case, or,
at least„ withheld punishment until he
saw clearly that duty to his child required
its administration. But now, obeying an
unhappy impulse, he caught up thephild
who was charged with the offence of strik
ing, and punished hini• with smarting
strokes. At the moment of doing so the
mother of the children, who had seen all
that had passed between them, called out
"Stop!stop; Henry! He didn't strike
hie brotlicif on purpose. It was all an ac
But this appeal came too late. The
wrong had been done.
" It's a shame !" said the mother, who
felt every painful blow the child had re
ceived, and who spoke from the moment's
indignant impulse. • •
Mr. Bray did not feel any better. Set
ting the. child down -without venturinza
reply to his wife's remark, he Strode up
stairs to the sitting-room, and threw Mtn
self into the great arm-chair. No one
ventured near him for sometime; so he
had fair opportunity for self-communion.
At last, a toddling little curly-head, who
generally hailed her father's return with
joy, came sideling, into the room, and With
a half timid air made her way, by almost
stealthy approaches, to the side of - the
moody man. Curiously she lifted her eyes
to his clouded countenance; stood-for a
`moment or two, as if in doubt, and then
olainbered up and laid her-golden tresses
against his bosom. , As she did so, the fa
ther's arms was "drawn - around hei., But
little curly-head was not, in her unselfish
innocence, content with the sunshine of
favor for herself alone. -
4! Pa I" Her voice had in it aomnthing
"What is it, my little pet?" And Mr.
Bray, who was penetrated by the child's
sphere of tenderneis; kissed her lips.
I , Willy didn't :hurt Eddy a• purpose.
Ely didn't strike him." - -
"But Eddy said that Willy struek him."
The father sought to justify himself in the
eyes of his abild.
- " Eddy only thought so," replied little
curly-head. Willy didn't strihe him stall."
, PA., THURSDAY, 11147 10, 186
Mr. Bray said nothing; but-he felt Very
uncomfortable.. When the tea-bell rung,
he went with little_curlhcadito the din
ing-room. All the rest of the family had
kept fromshim.' Mrs. Bray lonked par-,
titularly sober; and Willy, who had been
set all right as to his - conduct by his moth
er's 'declaration that he had not been
guilty of striking, put Bn, to the life, air
air of injured innocence! Mr. Bray. did
not speak ence 'during the meal, but sat
in silence with a heavily clouded brow.
For that evening the accustomed pleas
ant talks, •cheerful, sniilin,g faces,, and
merry laughter, were banlshed from the
home of Mr. Henry B ray .

work. It was , somethhig better at' the
family re-union , on the next morning.
Sleep had wrought ite usual work of-re
storing the' mind to its better states, and
calming its pulses to oven beat.
As Mr. Bray left his house something
earlier than tittal, and vies walking along
with - his ei*s cast dow i n, - thinking over
certain matters of business that would re
quire his attention, - a man came to his side
and in apleasant:voice,lsaid,_
'Good morning, Mr. Bray !"
The merchant glances up, with height
eninn• color, into the face of the person
.who b had overtaken hunlin his rather-de
liberate walk.. He= knew the voice; 'lt
was that of - bin - Carltoni,
"Good morning-!" The response was
not hearty.... flow could it be ?*
• " I was sorry•to trouble you-yesterday,"
said Mr: Carlton, speaking in a' frank,
cheerful way. " But a friend to whom . '
had loaned a sum of money, disappointed
me at the last moment, and I was compell
ed to burrow at au unseasonable hone.
Your kind offer to serve me wts none the
less appreciated because I had no use for
the check when- you Were so obliging as
to send it in. Mu. Aknew bad already
supplied my'trifliug ;ciency."
Now, what answer co hi Mr. Bray make
to this'? Was Mr. Carl on actually in ear
nest ? Was he reall so dull asi not to
hire appreciated his rou 11, insulting mes
sage of ' the day before ? Ot, was this
courteous acknowledgment-of an almost
extorted favor a rebuki g p.ece of irony?
."It, would have gratified me if you bad
trscd ibeolitibitr;) -replied - Mi. - IMy,` liiS
voice a little below itslusual firmness of
tone. "It was' tendered in allsincerity."
" I never doubted that for an- instant,"
said Mr.-Carlton, as if surprised that his
neighbor should intimate, even remotely;
a question of his right appreciation of the
favor. "Mr. 13ray's reputation as a cour
teous, gentlemanly -oneibant, and u kind
hearted man, forbid..an other inference!'
Now, this Mr. Bray felt was crowding
him a ittle too hard ; abd he was consid
erably annoyed. "Tell Mr. Carlton that
I neither borrow or lend." Could-he for ,
get that rough answer /to his neighbor's
request for a couple of; hundred dollars,
at a late hour in the day, when his-bank
account was still short 1i No. He could
not forgot, it; and that his ueigh6or's
compliment, - upon his mercantile and
manly virtuti, Sououed too much like cov
ert rebuke to be in the smallest nwasure
ane.eable. So.he changed the subject by
referring to :some generg topic, and man
aged to appear iniereSted, until, their
way's diverginAy they parted with courte- -
oust forms of speech.
" I don't like that,"
himself, as he walked o
is mere hypocritical ass]
tier the circumstances,
Bard it as leis than in,
talks again tb me after
tell him so."
The opportunity soon occurred. It'was,
perhaps, about twelve, hen the merchant
saw 1)1r. Carlton enter is store, and come
back to where he Was sttting at his"desk.
There was a familiar sole upon his Conn- -
tenance, and he looke l altogether self
possessed. - ; . --.
"Good morning , neat " said he, with
much apparent fraplin4s.
° "Good morning:" Mr. Bray tried to be
pleasant, and tried to assume a perfectly
composed exterior,. bu t t the eienicnts of
excitement were moving within , him.
There was always'a point beyond which
self-control . was -imposiible,. and he felt.
that Mr. Carlton was pr
,ssing him beyond
that point. In his unc+urte6uSrefusal to
lent' him two hundred dollars he had done',
wrong; but to the hes of his ability 'he ,
had endeavored to rep r"that Wrong, and
Mr. Carlton should hay ,accepted-histen
der of repentance. and .ot insulted him
by throwing -Mr. Agne. in hisfacelalong
with his rejected' loan. "-,Mr: =A ;new !—:-
Known throughout -the trade as one of .
the'most uncoutteouti-tind disobliging of,
men ?„. In that, act he ihad.given ttl-sum-
dent rebuke; and there,- in - Mr. Bray's
opinion,- he should be!willing to fet the
matter' est. , •
• __......,1 that iki i r, _'r
But it seemed that Mi.. Carlton 'felt dif
ferently, as he had shOWn - in his ironical
reference to the - matter at their lasilmeet
ing on the_ street; and It was plain to Mr.
Bray, from the manner; of his neihbor.
that he had come to anooy'him again with
some reference to a circarostanos that he
desired to 'forgeraiAelokly .as -possible.
He was not altogether mistaken,. Follow.
ing the "Good Morning again," cf 31. r.
Carlton, , succeeded this sentence, as spok
en with ad the cheerfal frankness: of a
man in earnest. _
" Yotir kindness yesterday makes me a
little pre:snning to-day. I will take that
cheek now if you have it to spare. My
friend has disappointed me again, and .I
have several payments to make—
: The smile bad fided from Mr. Carlton's
face ere this senteneolias finished, for, in=
stead of meeting a countenance of kind
compliance—stern, almost flashing eyes,
lucked steadily into his, and compressed
lips gave warning of a refusal:
" There has been enough of this al
ready !" said Mr. Bray,; with repressed
" Enough of what?", Mr. Carlton look
"Enough of insulting reference to my
act of yesterday !" answered Mr. Bray.
" Insulting ! 'What do vou mean ?"
And Mr. Carlton drew himself up and
looked quite as indignant as his neighbor.
"My words are very plain„ You un
derstand the king's English, I presume?"
" I - had supposed so. But yours is a
dialect with which I am not familiar, and
must beg you to supply the glossary.?"
" Let mo do that,,' said the clerk, step
ping forward at this juncture.
• " Do so, if you please, and I will be a
thousand times obliged."' And Mr. Carl
ton moved back a pace or two r awaiting
the clerk's explanation.
" Permit me !" the clerk looked at kr.
"Say OD, Thom.," was answered
"When Mr. Cadton sent in for the two
hundred dollars yesterday; you were an-I
noyed about something, and returned'
rather an uncourtcous refusal—one alto

do you the. injustice of letting it pass to
your neighbor - unqualified. So I softened
the refusal to make it counties much like
a regret for not complying as I possibly
Could. I knew - you wo-Ad think and feel
differently in a few, moments,
and I was
not mistaken, as the offered check proved.
That is the glOssary, Mr. Carlton, and [
trust that it will make all clear. Did I
do right, Mr. Bray'?" The young man .
turned;- with a — half look - to his rath
er passionate employer whose moods were
of so uncertain -a Character that it we<
hard to calculate direction of their im
pulse. A moment of enee passed, and
then Mr. Bray said, with feeling,
I ":Rtght, Thomas, right ! And [ thank
you for your jtidieious conduct."
The•young man bowed, and retired to
wait upon a customer..
For a little, while the two men stood
looking at each other, each so impressed
with the ludicrousness of the scene that
the rritscles'of risibility were all in play.
" You hare the glossary,". said Mr.
Bray, at length, a broad smile edvering
" Giving the clearest meaning to your
words, a moment ago so full of mystery,"
was answered, with as broad a smile iu
"You won't 'refuse my check, Ixtre
sume," and Mr. Bray turned to'his desk.
"Just try Me," said Mr. Carlton, in a
voice that left no doubt of; his meaning.
" Will two hundred be sufficient ?"
" You can make it threo, if you are over
'.aid Mr. Bray, to
alone. " All Ibis

" Three hundrid it is, Mr. Carlton,"
said the merchant, the thermometer of
whose feelings had risen froth zero to sum
mer heat, " and whenever I can accent•
medate you iu matters of this kind, don't
fail to command me. If, as it may hap
pen sometimes,ll should be a little una
miable, my clerc there will ; act as a cush
ion, and • prevent you feeling the shock of
my temporary ill-natare. didn't know
before that I had so -discreet an.assistant."
There was a warmer atmosphere in the
house of Mr. Bray on thei evening that
succeeded -this rather cloudy morning,
than on -the one which preceded, when
the shadow of a single angry-moment was
large and dense enough to cover the Whole
household with a leaden pall. • Little our

and eUjoyed it to their• heart's. content.
The mother, too,.was smiling and-happy.
