That is neither nh;;ht nor daylight,
In the shy light o? the twilight,
Soft and shady, 'ittle lady.
Comes a-roarning through the gloaming,
Comes a-rlnging suoh a sloging

Hakes the red bloct! surge and hammer
And the pulses turill and start;
Oh, my lady, little dear one,
With your shining ?yes so near ono,
All the world is fall ot rapture
At the capture ot your, heart.
So the while we listen nightly
To the bird that Jilreth brightly,
Kies me lightly, where all white'y
Gleam the stars in heights above,
While the twilight Hms and darkens '
And the brooding silence hearkens
To my pleading, ito your heeding,

too full of gratifi

Not only was it a novelty to have a
young person in the house, but such a
perfectly radiant creature was rare in
Such a face of roses and lilies, with
burnished curls of gold drooping on ;
the low brow-sweet eyes of dark vio
let, and heaven's own smile !
Nothing like Juliet Faye's beauty
was ever seen at Walnutville, and the
old people were sure, with her gentle
manners, that she wn? good as she was
She was the youngest child of Mrs.
Lambert's youngest sister, lately de
ceased, and she had come to the Lilies
to reside permanently.
"Sixteen I Old enough to come
out," murmured Mrs. Lambert "And
such a little lady 1 Lydia Bellingham
has no such girl among hers 1"
. Now it had secretly vexed dear Mrs.
Lambert that Mrs. Bellingham, her
sooial rival, had always a crowd of
pretty granddaughters and nieoes at
her house, making the place, since
young ladies are irresistibly attractive,
very popular. Bu' net one was to
compare with the lovely Juliet
Juliet escaping, after two hours' ex
amination, fr?m ber relatives' pres
ence, was allured down the main walk
of the old garden.
It was indeed a garden of lilies.
Yellow day-lilies drooped in beds,
white ones gleamed, and clumps of
spotted tigers glowed in the sun, while
the red velvetly aim TV His burned like
fire among the green.
Coming at length to the water, the
girl uttered a cry of delight; for dap
pled with sunshine, shimmered hosts
of lovely white water lilies. ; She
clasped her jeweled hands in ecstaoy.
She was certainly charming in her
azure drees and with pretty uncovered
head, at the edge ol' the water; and
perhaps the occupant of a litt lo can
opied boat np the river thought MO,
for silently the boat glided away from
its moorings among the willows and
carno slipping along uhe dark waters
of the pool.
"Would you like some lilies?" asked
a baritone voice.
And turning, startled, Juliet saw
tho handsomest young man she had
ever seen in her lite sitting in the
stern of the pretty boat, his hat in his
hand. The voice, the attitude, tho
courteous question, disarmed appre
"Yes, I should," sba replied, with
only a natural constraint
In an instant the young gentleman
had changed bis seat and shot among
them. In a moment he had a great,
fragrant, dripping handful, and the
young girl's eagerness and delight
brought a smile to his rather gloomy
"Oh, I never saw anything so beau
tiful 1" she cried.
"I suppose they are pretty, "feplied
the young man; "but I'vo seen them
every June for five yearn, and they
haven't the charm of novelty for me.
Indeed, nothing here has. Yon are a
stranger, are you not?"
He had pushed his boat among the
rushes to band her the flowers, and
sat looking over his shoulder at the
roseate face she turned to him.
'Yes, I have come to the Lilies to
live. Mrs. Lambert is my aunt"
The young man gave vent to ft soft,
^"Sorry," he said.
Then laughing, and with his usually
wearied expression displaced hy one
of ni ir tb, he was such avery handsome
fellow that Juliet was lost in admira
tion ; but in an instant the girl's ex
"Why?" she asked.
"Well, you know." replied her com

a pretty girl as you ai e since I have
lived here, and I wonld like to have an
introduction and oall ar. your home, if
it was any other place. But at the

Then, as she regarded hist in per
plexity, he lifted his iitraw hat, and
with a pleasant parting glance, pulled
away out of the pool and round a sud
den bend of the river out of sight
Juliet breathed in the delicious
odor of her lilies pensively, and turned
homeward. Her adventure had been
a pleasure, but it left a regret.
"I never met anybody so nice," she
said. "Bat he will forget me."
That evening her Aunt Lambert
"My dear, I hope yon. Viii be dis

"Has he married?" asked Juliet, hei
blue eyes wide with this disastrous
"No. I never' knew why," replied
Another afternoon found Juliet
again in the garden.
Her footsteps strayed again to the
lily pool. '
Looking across the river, and seeing
the walls of a grand, gray mansion ris
ing among the green, a suspicion that
she had already admitted one of the
forbidden Brennans to her acquaint
ance orept into her heart.
Yet a blush and smile illuminated
her lovely countenance as she saw the
pretty canopied boat float out from
among the willows.
"Good afternoon," called out the
young mau across the lily pads, and
indeed ho looked quite vivacious ; "I
was iu hopes you would como down
here. Isn't it a lovely day?"
He pulled up among the bobbing
"Would you like some more lilies?"
"Yes," returned Juliet, "but
but," she faltered, "I am afraid you
are one of the Brennans, and I am
forbidden to know them." 9
He looked up with au understand
ing glance and a smile.
"If I am, you will have to excuse
me for it. We will have the lilies in
any event,n pulling at the long, glis
tening, pink-green stems; "nowthese
are regular beauties-the finest of the
season. Glad I can do something for
you. It's very jolly to have a young
lady down here. I was lonesome. Do
you want any more?" loading her
hands. "Won't you come into the
boat?" he added earnestly, seeming
to apprehend that the meeting would
now end ; "it's nice here on the water,
and very comfortable, and if I am a
Brennan, I am respectable," he added.
He met ber wistful eyes with sym
"You want to go-I see you do.
And, you seo, you don't know that I
am a Brennan," he laughed.
"No," faltered Juliet.
And the .sunshine was so bright on
the crystal stream, the shadows so
golden-green under the willows, the
distance so alluring, she Bet a little
foot iii the boat and in a moment was
far down the river, winding between
A heaven on earth followed, "for
;ay youth loves gay youth," and
green and blue were glad together
that afternoon. But when Juliet
sprang upon the grass again the emita
faded from her face.
"I know well enough that you are
Boland Brennan," she ? aid. "Thank
you for a nico time, but please don't
ask me to go boating again. My aunt
is very kind to me, and I don't wish
to disobey her."
"But what am I -to do?" asked the
young man quickly. "I never had
such a happy afternoon in my life.
Why,^ I'm terribly lonesome. My
uncle won't let me aasooiate with Tom,
Dick and Harry, even if I wanted to,
because we are rioh and must keep up
the dignity of the family. And he
won't let me take up a profession or
learn a business because he wants to
keep me with him. He's a grand old
fellow ; but, ob, it's dreadful here for
me. I" suppose you think it cruelty,
butl've come to almost hate the place,
and now I like you so well you-you
are going to throw me over."
"Oh, no," said Juliet, blushing. "I
couldn't do anything so rude," inno
cently. "I-I presume we shall meet
"In society. I am to be at the pio
nio to-morrow ; and my aunt is to take
me next week to spend a .few days
with Mrs. Bellingham."
"Good I Then I see my way clear,"
exolaimed the young man, throwing
up his hat enthusiastically.
At the picnio at Mrs. Bellingham's
hospitable house, nt parties and balls,
this Borneo and Juliet met; and,
though the girl's heart quaked some
times under her aunt's proud old eyes,
and a sorrowful shame filled her breast,
Boland Brennan's taot staved ofl dis
covery until late in the autumn.
Juliet knew that by a word, a smile,
she made this handsome lover vory
happy, aar" if a proud and resentful
relative was to be made miserable by
the fact that she loved this forbidden
young man as dearly as he loved her,
she could not feel quite altogether to
If Aunt Lambert had been stern
she would not have cared at all, but
she was the most indulgent of guar
dians, and Juliet oould not be alto
gether happy, though she lay among
the roses and fed on the lilies of life.
Then Mrs. Delight Phillips came
She was a pretty blooming woman
of forty, evidently with a perfeotly
sound heart. She had been a widow
a year. She had a sunny smile, and
Juliet liked her.
The latter had committed herself to
a secret skating expedition with Bo
land Brennan.. Tho river was frozen
for the first time, and both were pas
sionately found of the amusement.
She had run lightly down the snowy
garden, and had caught Koland's arm
with a merry salutation, when two
figures, warmly wrapped in furs,
stepped from under the pine trees.
Boland started violently ; the little
skates dropped with a clang from
Juliet's nerveless hand.
"Juliet 1" cried Aunt Lambert, re
"Mr. Boland Brennan !" pronounced
Uncle Lambert stiffly.
The four eyed eaoh other ?>lemnly

first to recover himself.

"No time like the present. Oome

i "We aro to be married at Christ

young folks end. Let us all be hap

sunny smile, which was so contagious
that Aunt Lambert snatohed weeping
Juliet to her breast and kissed her.
Then all the women kissed each

A Contest ol Speed.
C. C. Taylor, engineer of the Pablo
Bailroad, has pulled a throttle for
thirty-six years, and during that time
has had many novel experiences, but
Sunday he had one that has no parallel
in his life's history.
It was during the run from Pablo
to Jacksonville. About eight miles
this side of Pablo is Cedar Swamp, a
tangled morass in whioh bear, wild
cats, deer and even panthers have
been often killed. When about half
way through the swamp an immense
buck, wild eyed and lathered with
sweat, made a clean leap of twenty-five
feet on to the track, within sixty feet
of the engine. An instant later there
was a orash of the underbrush, and
out of it came an immense panther,
running so fast that he seemed to be
level with the ground. He was so
eager to catch tho game ahead of him
that he had no eye for the train.
Passengers in the five ooaohes did
not know of the exciting race going
on ahead of the cowcatcher, but they
did notice that there was a series of
quiok 'and successive jerks, and that
tho train was spinning along through
the swamp at a whizzing pace. It
was at this time that Engineer Taylor
resolved to take a hand in tho race
himself. He pulled the throttle wid*

the panther was thirty yards behind
the deer. The deer was barely hold
ing his own. Something seemed to
be the matter with him, for he didn't

traok for a half mile. Before he left
the traok, however, the engine orawled
close upon the panther. He heard
the rumbling of the wheels and tho
trembling of the traok, and he quickly
got out of the way, hiding in the
underbrush by a series of successive

Structure ot Water Plants.
We can not conceive of a higher ani
mal without veins and lymph vessels.
But in water plants we not seldom
miss the long and broad ducts of
which the vascular system of land
plants is constituted. At all ovonts
tho vessels do not perform so im
portant a part in the vegetable king
dom as the circulation of the life
juices in the animal kingdom. Their
prinoipal service is to carry water
lr om the roots to the leaves. From
thin we can understand how organs
essential io the life of land plants can
be dispensed with in water plants.
They do not. need a special oonduoting
of water, because they are surrounded
by that element on every side. The
most marked instance of the absence
of internal organs is met in an alga
wh;ch forms green fields in the deeper
parts of the Mediterranean Sea. It
has slender, branching, horizontally
i oreeping stems whioh develop above
in the water into leaves and below iu
the sand into fine thread roots. But
the whole plant, often many feet rn
length, consists only of single gigantic
cells. A tough skin inoloses its jnioes,
whioh flow in a continuous stream
through the stem, leaves and roots of
the ourious growth, here taking up
through the skin and assimilating
mineral substances, there producing
and transforming organio matter, and
at the same time advanoing the growth
and inoreasc of the whole.-Popular

The story of the so-called Connecti
cut "Bine Laws" is told in a history
of colonial times written by the Rev.
Samuel Peters, once pastor of a church
In Hartford in revolutionary days.
Here are some of Peters' bluest laws,
all of which are identical, in a vital
sense, with old colonial enactments :
No. 1-"The governor and magis
trates convened and in general assem

of this independent dominion. "
No. 2-From the determination of

No. 10-"No one shall be a freeman '
or give a vote unless he is converted
and a member in full communion of

No. 12-"Each freeman shall swear
by the blessed God to bear true alle
giance to this dominion and that Jesus
is the only king."
No. 13-"No Quaker or dissenter
from the established worship of this
dominion shall be allowed to give a
vote for the election of magistrates or
any other officer."
No. 14.-"No food or loding shall
bc afforded to a Quaker, Adamite or
No. 15.-"If any person turns Qua

No. 20.-"No woman shall kies her
child on the Sabbath day or fast day. "
No. 21.-"The Sabbath day begins
at sunset on Saturday." Mr. Newton,
commenting said: "The twenty-first
bine law, making the Sabbath begin at
sunset was, of oonrse, the law of the
New Haven Colony, and the law of
our forefathers down to a compara

such has been the law of the Sabbath
since the evening and the morning of

No. 22.-"To pick an ear of corn
growing in a neighbor's ga: den shall

No. 24.-"When it appears that an
accused has confederates and he re

blue law to which Mr. Newton refuses
to give a foundation in faot. He
says: "I do not find any indication
that this statement is true, and Trum
bull says it is false. " Anyhow, it is by
no means a monstrously blue law as

From (he Journal, KirkniUe, Mo.
Henry Gehrke is a thrifty and prosperous
Gorman former living four milos south of
Bullion, in this (Adair) County, Mo. Mr.1
Gehrke has a val u able farm and he has been a
resident of the county for years. Ho ls very
well-known hereabouts and well respected
wherever he is known. Last week a reporter
of the Journal stoppod at Mr. Gen rico's and
while there became much interested in Mrs.
G i! h rk o's account of the be noil t she had not
long since experienced from the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. 8ho
said she wanted everybody to know what a
great medicine these pills are, butas so many
people are praising thom now-a-dnys, she
modestly doubted whether her testimony
could add anything to what others hod al
ready said of them. Her only reason for
talking for publication about Pink Pills was
that the people of Adair and neighboring
counties might be convinced, if any doubted
that oft-published testimonials concerning
Pink Pills were genuine statements from the
.lips of persons who have been benefited by
the use of thom. Speaking of her own in
teresting experience, Mrs. Gehrke said:
? "A little over a year ago I was completely
broken down. I had boon taking medicino
from a dootor but grow worse and worse un
til I could scarcely go about nt all. The
least exertion or the mere bending of my
body would cause me to have smothering
spells, and the suffering was terrible. I
thought lt was caused by my heart. When
everything elso had failed to relieve me and
I had given up all hopes of ever being any
thing but a helpless invalH, I chanced to
read some testimonials In the Farm, Field
and Fireside, also in the Chicago Inter-Ocean,
and the suffering of tho peoplo who mode
the statements were so nearly like the suf
fering I had endured that when I read that
they wore so greatlv benefited by the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
I did not hesitate to go nt once and pur- i I
?hose two boxes. I took them according to
kllreotlons and before the first box was used I
felt a good bit better. Really the first dose
convlnoed me that it was a great remedy.
Before the two boxes wt re used up I sent
my husband after three more boxes, so I
would not be without them. When I had
used these three boxes I felt like a different
womau and thought I was almost cured.
"Since that time I have been taking them
whenever I began to feel badly. When I
began taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Tale Peoplo I weighed only 118 pounds and
after I had been using tho medicine for about
six months I weighed 122 pounds. I have
had a good appetite ever since I commenced
taking Pink Pills and instead of mincing
along, picking such food as I could eat oven
with an offorr. I eat most anything that
comes on the table. I am not the invalid I
was. I do not have to be waited upon now
as If I was a helpless child, but I work all
the ti mo, doi ng the housework and ironing
and working in the garden without that
dreadful feeling which comes over a person
whea they are afraid they are going to have
one of those spells that I used to have.
''Work don't hurt me any more. I hon?
?ietly believe that had it not been for Dr.
Wilt.' ms' Pink Pills I would now be in my
grave. I still have what the dootor calls
bilious collo, bet the Pink Pills have made
me muoh better and the spells are not so fre
quent and are nothing like as painful as be
fore I bogan to use them. I would not be
without tho Pink Pills for that disease alone
under any circumstances to say nothing of
the othor diseases for whloh they are espe
cially recommended. I take pleasure in tell
ing my neighbors the benefits I have received
from Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple, and know ot several who have taken
my advice and have been greatly benefited
