When the rich gold and' purple of Life's sunset
Lies in its beauty on the silent sea;
When on the shore I see the white robed angel
And hear his whisper, "God has called for
• thee,"--
Erts lit with-loco will watch me en the seashore,
Worm human hands will fetidly press my own;
Tint can 1 hear them with me on my journey
Out 4lanugh the dimness of tho world unknown?
And this great l.,cauty of the earth and heavens.,
The holy night whose glory fills my soul,
The softened amethyst of fading twilight.
The, gleaming stars on night's emblazoned scroll—
The rusy light of morning on the mountains
The tender purplo of the distant sea.
Things I love now, from henceforth all forgotten;
What of their beauty can I bear with me?
J. B. Nat
" Pme," sighed gentle-hearted Pascal,
And yrt I think that not ttlono we die;
ThougL all this earth is dimly fading from us,
Ate we alone if Ql3O kind Friend is nigh?
thie who Enid, "Lo, I am with you always,"
The usiy-worn man who sat by Galilee,
Speaking good words - and - healing all the people;
Who lived and died for love of you and me.
Oh; not alone, for this our Friend and Brother,
Though ifearen'a great , angels bow before Hie
throne, "
Shall stand with us upon the silent seashore,
His hand shall guide us to tho world unknown.
In Abel exercise of his profesSion,
Eugene , Laromie had passed through
slime - wonderful adventures, and been
nearer death than,most men cared to, be.
His suCcess,in ferreting out and bring
ing to light &Mies of all kinds had won
for him the bitter, enmity ,of all Wren
ders, both 011[101 and criminal', in, the
city. They hadreperitedly vowed ven
geance agam . st him ; for ; they declared
that there Amns no Channe.• for ,them

readiness-to-meet th , whenever they
desired it, only, they' gave him fair
This ? however, was the last thing
that they, intended doing. They had
fired at him frequently, without suceess,
and had been equally unsuccessful in
their attempts at poison. They had
gotten up mock conspiracies, with, the
hope of decoying into ttleirpov6r •

the hope of capturing Mini; and it was
very certain that, if they could succeed

One day he was lounging idly near
one of the most noted shops of the Pal
ids Royal, when a woman passed by.
She was very beautiful, and was richly
and tastefully dressed. She was evi
dently a lady, and one of the most beau
tii ul the detective hadeverseen. As she
parsed she !bolted at WM with a fixed,
gage, and. then Instantly,T ;
Larornlm lifted his hat and bowed pro
foundly. When he raised his eyes
again, tqc lady had disappeared. He
was annoyed at this, for he was anx
ious to learn more of the beautiful
stranger'; and, from the smilnshe lead
given him, he knew that- she. Was_ not
averse to such a course on his part:
Eugene Laretnie was a true Frenchman
in his love and gallantry ; and this was
the only thiug.that ever brought him
Into any real danger. Several times ho
had narro,Wly' escaped death tit tbe
hands of jealous husbands; -and his
friends were confident that, if ever he
died - by vitlence, a woman would be the
cause of it.
During the ,slay hercould, *n r ot help
think ing.of the beautiful unknown who
had faccinated him. The next morning;
. abOut the same hour, he took his. place
again near the Palais Royal to watch
for her. lie was not kept waiting, long.
Slieoon appeared ; anti, as she passed
him, she again smiled, and, this time,,
the smile was acompanied by a bow
Acting upon a sudden imphise, Laromie
started forward and placed himself at
her side.
He was about to speak to her, 'when
she said, hurriedly, and in a low tone :
" Not yet Monsieur Laromie ; we are
observed. £o-night ; at the opera:"
" One -Word, madam;" exclaimed .
Laromie, impulsively. - "whom have I
the honor - of add reSSlng - 1".
The lady laughed slily, and', then,
handing him a card, said impatiently :
"Go now. I will see you to-night at
the opera."
Laromie Bowed low, and drew back,
while the lady passed ' on. Glancing at
the curd that she. had given him, he
saw written upon- it, in a delicate hand, Noble; but whether it was
Madam or Mademoiselle (Mrs. or Miss),
the pasteboard did not state, and the 'de-
Waive did not care. He only kneW
that shO, was a most beautiful woman,
and that she had consented to grant
him tni interview.'

twitching his - in ustaehe abseil tly, "what
may come of it? - i3he is Superb. . But
how the deuced id - she find out my name?
Well, it is not strange. Every One has
heard of me,"
In Paris When one • , wislieS to learn
anything respecting au inhabitant of
the great city, he can be satisfied bY ap
plying. to the Chief of Police. To the
office of his, Chief Laromie now 'bent
his steps upon an errand of this kind
respecting the lady he had just, parted
with: In answer to hisinquirles,. the
:Chief consulted a ponderOusledger,'and
after a brief inspection, declared, there
was no such a person in Paris. .
" What is it, Laromie?" he diked;
"public business, or an assassination,?"'
" Oh, merely a little 'aflair of • tiiy
own," said Laromie, laughing.
"'fake care, my friend,rSnid the
Chief, gravely. "You run great risks
In those little affairs of yours, and we
could not afford to lose you just now."

gaily, "I always - have my wits about
That night the detective was at the
opera at an early hour. He waited
impatiently t 'as the audience came in,
and lie thought that they had never
been so slow before. He scanned the
Loses and, parterre closely, hot could

formance began, his attention was at

speak to hiui. As he, looked back to
the audience, when his friend left him,
his heart. gave a great hound of delight.
There was a Indy, sitting in one of the
most retired boxes, radiaut ih her beaii

his thani:s for the •happiness she hail

' , In - r4ly to a question, the lady told
him that she was the widow of a gen
tleman of goad family and great wealth.
She said that she had seen Laromie at
varionS places in the city ; and, with a
blush she, Confessed thatshe had become
very ' much ' interested in him. The

vanity, and here ali etty woman could
always strike a successful blow. He
had become completely fascinated with
Madamede Noel;-.and, while he sat
with her, in the box, the dernonstra
tidns of his admiration were so marked
that the lady had 'Several times to re
mind him that they might be observed
by some of the audience. When the
performance was n over, the lady asked
him if ho wonld go some .with her to
supper; and he, ov rJoyed, consented.
When they - reach d the residence of
Madame de Noel; tto carriage passed
into the court-yard and they left it.
They entered a dim y-lighted hall, and
passed into a midi tuously furnished
apartment, brilliau y illuminated. A
foot Man received4.ladame and :took
charge of the cloak and hood which
she laid aside. Lar&nio afterward re
membered that she looked at the man
in a peculiar. way, as she bade him
have the supper ready as soon as pos
sible ; but he thought nothing of it at
the time.
Madame seated herself ilia luxurious
arm -chair, and •Laramie threw himself
on a cushion at her feet. For -a ibng
while neither spoke. A strange silence
had fallen over them. All the while,
howreyer, tbe,young man's head rested
against•the arm of her chair, and one of
her hands played carelessly with his
A slight ' noise in the apartment
caused the detective to raise his head.
But he could not rase it high enough
to see anything, /1141ame's hand rested
on it heavily,

said quickly.
At the same thie he felt himself
borne to the floor by an irresistible-force,
and before he could collect his wits,
which he did not hive about him this
time, lie 'was bound ,hand and foot, and
left helpless on the', carpet. Glancing
up, he saw the room was full of men.
' What doeS this mean ?" he demea
ned sternly.
" It means Mong r 'k , ur Laromie," re
plied the lady, smiling sweetly, "that
you will not sup with me to-night."
LaKomie's coolness returned to him,
now that it was too late. -1
" It seems that '..1 have been a very
great fool,'" sa,i'd lie, bitterly.
" I agree with-you, Monsieur," laugh
ed the lady. *
, " Stand aside." Said one of the men
coming forward., , "Lot me speak with
him. • Do you' krioNir me, Monsieur?"
he asked.
" Yes," replied Towle. "You , - are

ernment as the Prestdent of a socialist
club, captain of a barricade, and a gen
eral promoter of disdrder. These men,
I suppose, are - Your cionfccierates."
" Precisely so, Mo isieur." You have
been, for a long time, as anxious to cap- ,
titre us as we have ben to secure you.
Fortune has favored us, this time, an ti
-you are now our prisoner. PerhapS
you would' like to know what we in
tend doing with you."
" That is a; matter , of indifference to
me," said the detective, coolly.
" Your courage is undoubtedly great,"
said Itoulier; "but we must put it to
the test. Wu have decided long ago,
Monsieur, that you; must die. We
-Would carry out the decision to-night;
but all of our club are not present.-- -To-
Morrow night the absent ones will re
turn, and then we shall proceed to, in
flict our vengeance upon you. Your
heart wilt by cut out of •your living
body. May heaven preserve your soul,"
he added, mockingly ; for "your earth
ly part is doomed."
"Do not be to sure of that," exclaimed
Laromic, indignantly-. "I was never
born to die by the hands of such cow
ardly, miscreants."
The socialist leade. laughed.
" Ali ! Monsieur toxemic," ho said,
sarcastically, "why would you 'not be
warned by your friends? Women will
be the death of you, I feat."
" Who is this woman?" asked the
detective, not heeding the taunt...
Let me anSwerthat," said madame
tie Noel. "Monsieur Laromie," she
added, "1 am .one who has long• owed
you a debt of vengeance. Two. years
ago, you arrested a wonian named
Marguerite Poisson, charged with mur
dering a - French soldier. She was tried
by your cowls, and condemned to death.
That woman was my mother.
" Well," said Larornie, calmly. "she
milks not executed."
‘`'l'Z'o ; but she was transported."
" But the goVernment subsequently
pardoned her; and gave her permission
to return to France."
" True.; hat the pardon was too late.
When it reached Algeria, my, mother
was dead. I swore to be revenged- on
you. I hate you as he that caused my
mother's death. .and I shall witness
your execution with joy.".
" What is your name?"
" Madeline
"'Then you are mistress of the . chief
of this club.. A pretty couple, truly,
and a pretty scrape you have gotten me
into ! Well, thdn, , Madiime Julie de

will afford you And satisfaction, know
that, instead of causing your mother's
death, I tried to save her. In the dis-
Charge of my duty,-I arrested her; and,
although I believed :her guilty of the
offense charged against her, I pitied
her. To oblige me,.the Chief of Police
interceded with the Minister of Justice,
and procured the change of her sentence,
and finally her pardon. If you doubt
this, y ou have simply to apply to the
Chief of my command, and• he will con
firm my assertWn."
Therman turned pale as..death.—
Calmi g her agitation, she turned to
Roulier, and said, hastily : "Spare him

They had long threatened him with
vengeance for the injuries he had in
flicted upon them by detecting their
plots; and, now they had him in their
power, he felt surd that they would car

he was without hope he was not desert

He was a brave man, and ho resolved

The next day passed away slowly,
and the night came at last. Precisely
at nine o'clock, Laromie heard the door
of his cellar unlock. It swung open,'
and Renner appeared, bearing a large
lamp. As he entered the room, the
light suddenly went out.
"Let us close the door and stop the

light the lamp again. I have matches;"
In response to this summons, about
thirty men entered the room, and the
door was closed.

The denouement was so sudden and
startling that they could not speak, at

cured their prisoners befor they recov4 f

detective, smiling, "the tables have

The prisoners were conducted to the

The Constitution of the Earth
I wish to mention here what I should
have stated in number 7.
Kepler, whw...e great work, " Astron
omia J.Cova '' was first published in
1009, taught that each planet was ani
mated by a spirit, which held to the
matter of the planet, (a relation anato
gond to that which tilie mind of Man
holds to his body. , .1
Gilbert., au English Man, who in 1000
published a work on the magnet, held
that the moon had al* ciprocal action
upon the earth, not onl • upon the mat
ter of the earth, but 111 on certain sub
terranean humors and 8 )irits which are
drawn out and modifie( by the moon's
Sir Isaac Newton in Lis " Principia"
gravely suspects that the spirit which
constitutes the most subtle and be'St por
tion of our atmosphere, and which is
necessary to all life, is derived from
The science of the physical structure
of the earth was not then knoWn as
now, or these eminent writers might
have suspected that the physical struc
ture and supply of the earth wore an
alogous to that of animal bodies.
In the animal and vegetable body the
daily loss of matter is supplied by what
is taken 'into the body as food, whether
that be animal, vegetable, liquid or gas
• I stated In number 8., in speaking of
the: vacated space left in the central
parts of the earth, by the deposition
upon the surface, of internal matter,
that " takitg the second alternative,
that the vacated space is filled with
foreign matter, the very pertinent ques
tion arises, whence comes this foreign
matter ?"
It will, I presume, be conceded by all
that the earth contains all the elements
that enter into the physical constitution
of animal and vegetable bodies; and,
that all the mechanical, chemical and
electrical forces of the earth and of all
the bodies upon the earth, are mutually
engaged in keeping up sand sustaining
each other.- Destroy any one element
of nature, and you would destroy, or at
least materially disarrange thewhole of
nature itself. Destroy the mysterious
power of attraction and nature becomes
at once a warring chaos. Destroy , that
principle which we caltlife and death,
dismal and eternal,. wraps all thingslin
everlasting silence and night.
Science has taught us that all the'
suns, their planets and their satellite
are a mutual community each exercis
ing an influence on all others, and all
traversing illimitable space, each in his
own orbit, yet all crossing and recross
ing the other's orbits, influencing and
directing each the other, as each-indi
vidual of the earth exercises an influ
ence on all other; that as on this ex
ternal earth there are families . , small
municipalities, states, nations, each one
helping make up families and cominti
allies and these helping make up still
larger communities, so in the heavens
we have the planets and satelites re
volving around these planets and ti4se
all revolving around a central' sun and
this sun, with innumerable other Am
centres, with all their attendant phi.n
ets and, satylites revolving around an
°tiler centre stilt inguer nun so and
up infinitely beyond even angelic com
prehension ; and all these mutually in
terchanging influences. You may truce
this same system of mutual influences
into all animal and vegetable life. ' De
scend into the chemical world and the
same rigid system stares you in the face ;
take your microscope and traverse the
whole range of microscopic life down
to mutual communities, the individu
als of which are so small that twenty
thousand millions of them would find
ample room to work within the urea of
a cubic inch anti you find this same
law of mutual influence!.
Now as the principle! of life is the
very mainspring of all existences and
bodies whose internal structure we
have been able to examine, is it proba
ble that the creator has acted on one
system in all else and departed from it
in what we are iteenstomed to c.insider
the great principle of creation—Life?
has ho made the Infusoria of thd sea,
the beast of the field and intellectual
man on one plan—the plan of living
acting, enjoyable life, and all the suns
and planets and starry worlds travere
ing the boundless fields of beauty and
sublimity, on another plan—that of
dead, inert matter?
Let me call your attention to another
question of analogy. If you could puss
to the sun and find that it was made up
principally of the same materials that
compose the earth ; to all the Planets
and fixed stars and still find the same
analogy ;—if you should -examine the
atinosnluires that surround the suns,
planet, and fixed stars and find there
the same materials that make up your
body and all other animal bodies, would
it not - be a very striking argument in
favor of the doctrine that God made all
things on one great fundamental plan e ?
And yet' by' the spectroscope astrono
mers have passed to the sun and planets
and fixed stars and have examined their
atmospheres and have found there the
elements of the earth as well as the ele
ments of animal and vegetable bodies.
' The researches of De La Rue, Stew
art, Kircholl and others have recalled
the fact that in the atmosphere sur
rounding the sun there exists in an reri4
form state sodium, calcium, magnes
ium, iron,, nickel, zinc, cobalt, hydro
gen and other metals and earths that
compose the body of our earth; and'so
far as investigation has -gone, in other
planets and fixed stars. An examina
tion of the star Aldebaran discloses the
fact that it is composed in part of sodi
um, calcium, bismuth, antimony, mer
cury, iron, hydrogen and other metals
and earths similar in composition tO
those of our - .globe. And no doubt is
entertained that further investigation
Will fully confirm . .tho opinion that all
the ccustituents o p t' the heavenly bodies
are identical or nearly so; witk the con
stituents of our earth and of course in a
great measure, with our bodies. Here,
then, we have the clearly proved fact of
the proximate identity in material of all
the bodies in nature which can by any
present possibility conic under our ob
Here also is another• fact, that science
has demonstrated—Throughout all the
limits of: imnfeasurable space there can
be no vacuum. All space is tilled k\ith
an etherial fluid, in which all olher•tuat
ter is initnersed and floats; and it is
scientifically inferred this etherial 4uid
contains in an almost infinitely atten •
tutted form all• the elements of whiel
the worlds are formed ; it may be, in an
original duality, from which all the
evervarying combination arc made.
Let me repeat that throughout all this
illimitable space, all worlds are contin
ually travers'Ang each in his own orbit,
never repeated, cact i ' one exercising an
influence on !each other and all chang
ing and interchanging, not only posi
tion but material—for all things are ev
er in motion and change trout• the
mightiest orb to the smallest atom.
Let, us now come back to our own
world and contemplate some of its mo
tions, changes &c. With other worlds
it has a motion on its own axis and
around its orbicular centre, the sun.—
Why do these Movements, in common
with the movements of other worlds
take place? You answer, beoause it'is a
law o nature. Well; admitted; but
every law has a season for its enact
ment. - You ask me if I can see why
it should be necessary for the various
worlds to traverse these immensities of
space. Certainly, if it is true as stated
above that all worlds exist by a conqn
tral -interchange of. matter and that
world material is diffused throughout
all space by a mutual world interchange.
But how does thisworld material in
corporate itself into the matter of the
earth and how dries the earth return an
equivalent to thd great storehouse for
the use of other worlds.

Merry Negatives
As I As passing through the street 4,
not long ago, a cheerful little lad rain
by me. He seemed the personificatiO
of happiness. As lie ran I saw hiM
look back, as if expecting some one to,
be following him and in childish glee,
he said, " No, no, I can't." This little
incident awakened a train of thought,

manifold, from the agility which he
displays in catching fish for his master,
to the eappeity he has shown in learn
ing actually to speak. More than one
seal has been taught to utter distincly
the word Papa, and several animals of
the-kind are reported to have gone even
beyond, and to have pronounced seKeral
words at a time. Nor lutist, their love

that they will rise from the water and
remain nearly standing upright as long
as the instrument is playedc to which
they listen with, unmistakable pleasure.
it is not so very long since one of this
remarkable race came every day for
six weeks from the waters of the Medi
terranean, to take her rest under the
divan of a custom-house o fli ce r in
Smyrna. The latter had tamed her,
and placed a few rough planks at the
distance of about three feet from the
water's edge under his couch, and on
thes' boards - the seal loved to resi l for
several hours, giving vent to h 0 de
light, oddly enough, in a profusion of
sighs like those of a suffering man.—
She ate readily the rice and the bread
which were _offered her, though she
seemed to have sonic trouble in soften
ing the former sufficienlily to swallow
it with ease. After an absence of sev
eral days, the affectionate creature re
appeared with a young one under the
aim, but a month later she plunged one
day, frightened, into the water, and /
was never seen again.
Nearly about the same time, another
seal appeared suddenly in the very
midst of the port of Constantinople,
undisturbed by the number of caiques
dashing to and fro, and the noise of a
thousand vessels with their crews and
their passengers. One day the boat of
the French legation ways crossing over
to Pera o loaded with wine for the am
bassador. A drunken sailor was sit
ting astride on the cask, and singing
boisterously, when all of a sudden thei
seal raised himself out of the water,'
seized the sailor with his left arm, and
threw himself with hiS prey back into
the waves. He reappeared at some dis
tance, mill holding under his
