A silent, odor-lades air,
7rom heavy branches dropping balm;
A crowd of daisies, milky fair,
That sunward tura their faces calm,
So rapt, a bird alone may dare
To etir their rapture with its psalm.
So falls the perfectlay of June,,
To moonlit eve from dewy dawn, •
With light winds rustling through the noon,
And conscious roses half:withdrawn
In blushing buds.thet wake too 80011,
And flaunt their - hearts on every lawn.
The wide content-of summer's bloom, .
Tae peaceful glory of its prime,---:
Yet over all a brooding gloom,
A desolation born of time,
As distant storm-caps tower and loom
And shroud the sun with heights sublime.
For they are vanished from the trees,
And vanished from the thronging flowers,
Whose tender tones thrilled every breeze,
And sped with intrth tlm dying limits;
No form or shape my sad eye sees,
No faithful spirit haunts these bowers.
Alone, alone, in sun or dew I
One•fled to heaven, of earth afraid;
And one to earth, with eyes untrue
Arid lips of faltering passion, strayed;
Nor shall the strenuous years renew
On any bough these leaves that fade.
Long summer days shall come and go,—
No summer brings the dead again;
I listen for that voico's flow.
And ache at heart with deepening pain;
And one fair face no more I know,
Still living - Sweet, but sweet in vain.
In 18—, we were invited to address
the friends of Temperance in a village of
of Temperance bad just been instituted,
and bad redeemed some of the most aban
doned drunkards in the place. Legions
of devils had been cast out; and noblo
men given back to their families.
The gentleman presiding over the
meeting in the church, was a noble spec
imen of a maa ; tall, finely built, polished
in manner, and with an eye and voice in
which the - light and tone of a full, great
heart were unmistakably blended. He
was dignified and commanding; yet gen
tle and unaffected as a child. I loved the
man before he had placed his hand in
Others were impressed with the bear
ing of the president of the day—why so
much I could not understand, he being
a citizen with whom they were familiar—
but a feeling of quiet, beaming joy seem
ed to pervade the vast audience iu attend
ance. 'There were three ladies in the an
dietice who more especially appeared to
labor under some deep and uncontrollable
emotion. They wept like children, but
their tears hardly seemed those of sorrow.
I noticed that the chairman, at times,
could hardly suppress his own feelings,
for the lip was pale and quivering, and
his voice was tremulous with the flooding
of tears beneath. I saw here and there,
tears dripping upon other cheeks. It was
a mystery, for the exercises had not com
menced and I had seen nothing to account
for the tears. And yet. I was deeply af
fected myself before I was aware of it.
At the close of my address,'appealed
to the people in behalf of th Division,
and asked them if it had not wrought
good in their midst? Had it not redeem
ed some citizen who was once the soul of
honor ? Had it not restored some erring
son to a widowed mother? Had it not
made some happy, and filled some aching
heart with bliss too deep for utterance ?
"It has ! and the widow's - blessing be
upon it, and the blessing of the God of
the widow and the fatherles3 !"
E. Q. JONES
As if one heart pulsed in that audi
ence, a deep and thrilling amen, burst
from every lip, the eldest of the ladies
before noticed, standing upon her feet
and weeping in the fullness of joy. The
chairman bid his face hands, and
his broad chest heaved as only that of a
strong man can do, in such an hour.
In the evening, the Division met, and
I was pleased to find the chairman of the
day, the Worthy Patriarch, filling the po
sition with that rare tact which few eau
boast. Twenty-three were initiated by
special dispensation, and the glorious old
altar glowed with the kindling of a more
glorious light. Hands silently clasped
hands; tears answered tears; and through
all, the calm smile of a great joy shone
out and warmed every heart.
After the business of the evening was
completed, the Chaplain asked that the
Division re open under the head of the
good of the order, and the doors be thrown
open to the peOple who were thronging
the streets before the building. " This
is not tio much for the people," said he,
"as for parties immediately blessed by
by our efforts here, and to bring together
Again in the holiest of earthly ties, those
whom ruin has put asunder. Angels in
bliss are drawing aside the curtains this
lour to witness a scene at this altar which
will cause joy ‘on earth and in Heaven."
The doors were thrown open, and like
a pent•up food, the people swept in and

filled all the 'vacant space save that . which I
had been reserved in front (..f the altar.
First in thaticrowd, were the three ladies
I had noti2ed in the church. : Silence se
cured, the chipliin advanced into the
open space and said :
"This is one of :the happiest moments
of my life, for lam about to perform a
duty which , an angel might well be proud
"No where in life, is the effect of rum
so cruel and desolating, as at the:home.
Tbese.spots-which-aegood God designed
should be Edens, are transformed into
hells, where hopes are crushed, out, lives
turned to gall, and the holiest ties which
ever linked human hearts, broken in ag
ony and-tears. The husband forgets the
gentle keart which gave its priceless
trust when he was worthy of it, and
treads it under foot by the broken shrine.
"But here is a pool where the angel
comes to trouble the waters, and however
long the years of . infirmity, the stricken
ones can be healed. Here is bread
' enough and to spare, and many hunger
' log prodigals have returned. • We have
seen them afar off, and there •has been
singing and rejoicing here, for the lost
has been found, and the dead made alive
"We have witnessed these things in
our midst. We have seen two, whom
we all loved, join hands at the ma:liege
altar in the light of a glorious life-promise
and the fiend of - the wine-cup rend the
sacred tie, and drive the wife out to weep,
and the erring husband far down the ben
conless way of drunkenness. We have
seen one who loved as only woman can
love, compelled to obtain that seperation
which is a thousand times worse than
death. But, bless our Father in -Heav
en, the wine-cup has been dashed down,
and the exile returns and knooks at the
Eden from which he has been banished
by the flatning sword of appetite. Let
those whose love, through the long dark
night of 'the last five ycars, has clung
with changeless strength around the early
Vow, stand forth, and once more join
bands at our fraternal altar, before these
brothers and neighbors here, and God
and his good angles in Heaven."
Pale, and reeling with terrible emotion
the Worthy Patriarch stepped down and
stood a moment, as if Crushed with fear
that he would not be met by one whom I
now understood as a divorced wife. The
intensity of feeling manifested by those
present, can never be depisited on paper
—it was painful. The suspense,
er, was but foi a moment. With a sharp
quick, cry of joy, the lady in black tossed
her veil back from. her face and sprang
forward and grasped the extended hand
in her own, and kissed it, over and over
"Mine!" she sobbed in delicious joy,
"Aline I MINE AGAIN 1 . 0 God ! how can
I thank thee fol. this. Miae at last, and
you will love me again, as of yore Hu
bert, and we shall be so happy."
Her face, the picture of innocence and
trust, and of exceeding beauty, glisten
ing with tear-drops, wearing a smile of
indescribable sweetness and joy, was up
turned to his. 'With a simultaneous cry
the long severed hearts sprang together,'
and locked in each other's embrace, they
were one again. While thus united, the
chaplain repeated the marriage ceremony.
"And what God and our reform has this
hour united, let not man or rum put
asunder. Brothers, salute your brother
and you sister."
Before the rough hand, however, had
dared disturb the clinging clutch of those
long parted, two others had joined the

TO secure independence, the practice of
simple economy is all that IS necessary.
Economy requires neither superior cour
age nor eminent virtue; it is satisfied
with ordinary energy, and the capacity of
average minds. Economy at bottom, is
but the spirit of order applied in the ad,
ministration of domestic affairs; it means
management, regularity, prridence, and
the avoidance of waste. The spirit of
economy was expressed by per. Divine
Master in these words, "Gather- up the
fragments which remain, that; nothing be
lost." His omnipotence-did not disdain
the small things of life; and even while
revealing His infinite power to the mul-
titade,,lie taught, :the pregnant- lessons

All continents rise gradually from the

in the western the long slope toward the
east; the short toward the west. There
