THE BASHFUL LOVER.
"Ah, well! John came to-night and stood
For lull an hour beside the bars ;
And we two watched, between the trees,
The glimmer of the moon and starsr
John acted very strange. I think
I wish I knew the reason-why ;
I really thought he meant to say
Something to-night beside good bye ;
John's coming bore quite often now ;
I'm sure I don't know why ho should
Although my sister Jennie says
It's talked about the neighborhood
That ha in making love to MB
The strangest tbikgl ever heard:
For if itV true, how queer it is
That John has never said a word.
Ah. well I I shouldn't care so much
If John himself had told me so ;
For then he might have aajd jt all.
lTpa own account, j u-.

I m st,rp I s h.ptd him all I could ;
1 si wars rr.pt Lire at the bars
'. ;s.Led as any woman would
That had a lover whom she liked;
And waited, with her heart aglow,
For him to break the object first.
And then how quick she'd let him know;
J3ut John, be keeps a-coming still.
Jnst as he has for twelve months past ;
I've thought sometimes jt looked as though
I d have to speak myself, at last,
I'm bound that be shall know the truth,
And now, resolved, I cannot wait
For him to find it out himself;
And so, next time, I'll try my fate.
How the Sexes Go to Bed.
The young girl trips gaily up to
ner cnamner, and with the cau
tious timidity peculiar to her sex,
.first locks the doors and arranges
the window curtains, so that by
no possible chance a passer-by or
a belated nocturnal wanderer,from
the pavement can catch a glimpse
of her. budding beauty when' eng

ahe turns on the gas (o its full,
and institutes a general search
throughout the apartment, that
she may be sure it does not con
contain a "horrible bugbear," or
a "desperate ruffian," in big
whiskers and crisp black hair.
Carefully with her delicate lit
tle fingers, she lifts the bed val

A Cape May Scene.
This touching incident occur

looked with an awe on the furious
billlows, and then into the face of
his determined wife. On her
countenance were the words
"Come on." On his trembling
lips shivered the sounds. "Oh

minutive husbandry feared to
risk his limited portion of nosh
and bones in the dashing foam.
