Iiicc you have nskcei, I needs must tell the his

Nor itnagnof tourney In tlio lists of love.
'Twnn thus t found It tlirorlRli the cl'y's bristle

A tail, alight form brushed by with nllUcu rustle,
Alut pnsseit Into a carriage, mid was cone,

Of violet eyes, o'er which thn rippling tress

And so Flic passed, n glorious light about her,
Clothed, like n Summer elawn, In silver-gray,
And left tho crowded stri'cts us dark without her
Ah Winter shies whose, moon has passed away.
This little gauntlet which her hand was clasping,
Tell from her ns she reached tho eitrrlngo door,
And Hunted down, as flutters from the aspen
Home trembling leaflet whosu brief day la o'er,
And I I found It on the pavement lying,
Talo as the. marhlu Venus' missing hand,
Or somo small Hake of foam which Ocean, flying,
Iamvvcs In a furrow of tho moistened sand,
Slie was so like some queen of the Ideal
' With that bright Imiw, those soft eyes' shadowy
I fain would keep this pledge to provn her real,
To marl: her dltrcrcnec from an airy dieani.
And though her glove has unto mo been donor
Of much sweet thought, yet I can think It well
That sho should know as little of Its owner
As I of her from whoso fair hand It felt.
Why Rhould I drag her from her high pos Itlon,

Hardly a fact, nor wholly yet a vision,

'VriE following Interesting lnfonnntlon
relative to the condition of the crops is
taken front tlio advanco blirots of Jlie
July Report of tlio Commissioner of
Agriculture: Tlio Commissioner con
gratulates tlio country upon tlio pros
. pectof a year of averago fruitfiilness.
AVheat, tlio bread crop of tho country,
was, in ISIm, less in quantity and quality
than that of ISO 1.
Tlio greater portion of tlio heed used
last Autumn was of inferior quality,
producing plants of low vitality; the
'Winter following was in most districts
variable, freezing and thawing, with but
little snow and much moisture; and to
add to tiio chances against tlio lifoof the
nlmits, tlio Spring was cold, with fre
quent and severe freezing. This was
the caso particularly in thoOhio Valley,
and to eoino extent throughout tho
country east of tho Mississippi. But
the States west of that river promise an
unusually abundant crop of superior
quality. Tlio lino weather of tlio later
Spring and early Summer lias wonder
fully developed tlio remaining grain
of tiio Injured districts.
There lias been an unusual exemption
from ravages of insect tribes; neither
rust nor storms havo done it material in
jury; andif itescapessproutingfroni wet
weather, tho promise is of a crop nearly
as large a last year, and far better In
quality. Tho present indications, as
marked by correspondents, point to an
average of about eight and a half tenths
In quantity, and of a quality that will
make it equal in value to last year's
Tiio testimony from all quarters ren
ders it certain that tlio quality will bo
excellent. In Jersey County, Illinois,
tlio grain is unusually lino and large,
and will compare favorably with tho
grain of 1604. A correspondent in a
blighted district, who calculates upon
half a crop in his county, acknowledges
that its quality is superior, and admits
that thero will bo a sudleiency for seed
and bread for tlio home population, witli
ordinary prices, but that, under tlio
stimulus of extra high prices, thero will
ho fcomo to bend abroad. This btiperior
excellence will not only go far to make
up the difVerenco in quantity between
tlio crop of tiiis year and that of 1805
(which difTereneo Is far less than was ex
pected on the tlrst of June), but It will,
it is believed, make oven more good
bread and prove of greater value than
tlio crop of last year. Besides, thero has
been a saving in consumption, which
will help to swell thoprospcotivosupply.
Tlio poor quality of hist year's wheat,
and tlio high price of flour, in connection
with tho superior quality of last year's
corn, has had its legitimate ell'ect in
causing a largely-increased u.so of com-
ureau, wltleli Jias been lor three years
past in certain districts almost entirely
unknown, wheat having been actually
cheaper thou corn.
Tho Winter barley crop is in very
nearly tho same condition as tho wheat.
'Taken together, tho average ot the 1'iili
sown will reach nearly nine tcnUis, and
tho Spring-sown exceeds an averago by
nearly a tenth.
Tlio crop of oats lias been unusually
good, almost boyond precedent. In no
btato will there bo lcs than an average
crop, and in one at least (Kansas) the re
turns glvo promise of tweuty-llvo per
cent, moro than an average, liarcly is
tho country, in its length and breadth,
blessed with a crop so uniformly liberal
in Its yield, and of such excellent qua!
ity. A remarkablo exemption from ills
caso is apparent, though a correspond

that thero is but an ordinary crop, quite
low, with occasionally an uppearanco of

Clover mi tiered by 'Winter-killing, ex
cept lu tho traus-MI-slssippi States. Tho
loss varies from ono to four tenths, as
will bo disclosed by an examination of
tho tables. A correspondent from Out
iigainle Count jv Wisconsin, says that
the biuall white clover, the greatest de
pendence for milch cows, is entirely
gone. The month of May was tho driest
and coldest over known.
With tiio exception of Maluo and
New Hampshire, every State reports u
greater breadth of corn than imiuI. Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Kiukis,
and West Virginia have each Increased
their average about ten per cent. Town
has nearly us great an increase. In sev
eral of tho States tho condition of tho
crops Is nn average. Inmost of them,
however, as tlio tables Indicate, the cool
weather of the Spring gave tlio crop a
bad start, from which It had not fully
recovered up to the tlrst week In July.
It li generally reported low multitude
owing to tlio cold Spring, but in vigor
ous condition, and u deep green color.
Thero is yet ample time, with favorable
conditions, to maturo a productive yield
of lino quality, in whluh caso tho extra
breadth planted would give a very largo
emu. It is too early in tlio season to
arrlvoat definite estimates.
A somewhat diminished acreage of
sorghum is Indicated, hlltlo is grown
in tho Knstern States, but that llttlo Is
Increased this eeason. A material in
creao lu New York is shown ; but New
Jersey and Maryland report a slight de
crease. The sorglittm-growing btates,
I ndlanannd Illinois, showiu'oiislderublo
diminution; so also do Wisconsin and
Minnesota. The season tints far lias not
been very propitious for sorghum, utid
the reports represent the averago coip
dltion obotit one tenth below the stand
ard of ordinary excellence.
Somo portions of tho Stato of Ken
tucky are not yet supplied with liitinu
facturlng machinery. In fl raves County
not half as much was sown this Spring
last year, when quantities of it were de
stroyed by the trost for tho lack of niaiiu
facturlnir annanitiis. Tho people havo
nothing hut tho ordinary wooden mills.
Thero is nearly an averago breadth of
flax this season. In condition it is ten
tenths in most of tho Slates, though lu
somo of tho flax-growing States of the
West it is slightly under an average.
In every State thero wore moro pota
toes planted than usual. In Ohio fifteen
percent, more; in Kentucky, twenty
percent.; in Missouri, twenty-llvo per
cent.; in Kansas, thirty per cent. In
condition, no States except Illinois and
Minnesota are reported at less than ten
tenths; and in these States tlio increas

FOR YOUTHFUL HEADERS.
Little Maiiy hnsgonchomo. Earth
with all its flowers and sunlight and
starlight, its glorious sky and windin
rivers, was not bright enough for her,
The angels loved her with a better than
earthly love. The Father gathered her
iimong Ilis llttlo lambs that ply by tho
still waters, in tho green pastures.
Her eyes were very blue, and her
hair was very golden. As tho butter
cups spring up thickly in the green
green Holds, co friends gathered about
littlo Mary. They praised her fair face,
and said that never a garden gave Mich
show of erinwm as her cheeks. But
gentle friends nnd love, and every
earthly beautiful thing 'could not keep
llttlo Mary from her native heaven.
Farewell, littlo Mary. Your chair
with its wee arms sits in its accustomed
corner. Your little slippers and your
pretty frocks lie folded sacredly away.
nd still the round stocking moulds to
tho arched instep. Still the white robe
falls full as It last fell over the rarely
sculptured limbs. Your hooks aro on
their oaken shelf, and whosoever's eye
glances that way, somo trembling voice
says, "They were little Mary's." Thero
Is a picture hangs against tho parlor
wall-it is little Mary. There is a tiny
chamber that is seldom opened, save by
a palo woman with blue eyes, who goes
thero to weep it was littlo Mary's,
Thero is a milk-white kitten who gam
bols in tlio sun with a cherry ribbon
tied on her neck but tlio dimpled tin
gers that fastened it there aro dust. A
fairy tea-set stands in tho wide closet
it was littlo Mary's.
Bear heart how everything seems
blended with memories of her ! Wher
ever tho sunlight arches over tho roach
of a llttlo child's hand in tlio olden
home Mary's fingers havo moved.
Wherever It has woven tendrils of
gold through tho empty rooms, over
tho plea-ant garden along tho river
bank Mary's feet have hallowed every
spot. Wherever it lias let down its
golden arrows in the old orchard to mel
low tlio heart of tho apple, her graceful
limbs have swayed like leaves set danc
ing by the Summer winds.
And soinet lines, of a starry hour, when
tho fire-flies light their lamps on Mary's
littlo grave sometimes in tlio young
moonlight, when the shadows flicker
like a spent flame, and tho heart of
evening beats so softly that the birds
sleep over Its pulse, something bright
gathers In tho gloom and takes tho
shape of a littlo child's face.
That fuco with Its wondrous eyes
its wavy clouds of amber curls rippling
to every arch motion with its ruby lips
and glowing cheeks Its eager love-
glances Its coy blushes its lltful laugh
half shrouded in tears Its pure Heav-
en-liko brow that face is littlo Mary's

" Why! you would havo us like tho

whom a friend iiad been talking.
Truly would wo havo woman like the

Its appearance in tho anlnial organism
Tlio flrst trace of it is discovered about
tiio end of the third week of embryonic
life, when it presents itself a red spot
a mere central point as It were from
which sundry yellow filaments aro seen
shooting forth. Tills Is tho germ of
thnt "fearfully made" instrument, the
human heart, accompanied by its prln
elpal blood-vessels. " This organ," says
Galen, " Is the root of all tho entrails
and members of tho body, and the very
fountain of life, and rill innate and vital
heat." Tho heart, according to tho
peripatetic philosophers, is in a human
body, as tho flrst Intelligence In the
universe and as a kind of monarch in its
own little world. The substance of this
muscular structure for such it is cup
phatically is very compact and strong,
in order that it may bo able to resist the
tremendous btrain destined to bo put
upon it, especially hy imprudent people
and tlio better to preserve tho vital heat,
and the spirit which, as another quaint
writer remarks, "would soon breathe
out and vanish away from it, were it of
greater rarity and softness."
