Psnquiegly ont of my .ight.
DOWA, down, by the borders of heavein,

Where the vault of th.- buried midnight
Reietes the approaching day.
They are steadfastly weadiii onwa'd
In the endless path of titne,
By worlds that are yet unut:ered

And life brings back the mutte,ing,
'As the wor!ds pass out of s ight,
'Tis not like the roll of thunder.

Hat soft as the dreamy turning
Of a slow :and muffled wheel.
It rollsjba1upon our spirit,
Like wine from the chalice drawt,
And lssoft as the dew on the mountain,
Or the moss on the carpeted lawn,
The.soal is b.thed in the music,
Anaforgetting its anguish and care,

And looL,. the waning night,
As'the worlds in their diamond splendor
Pass pensively ont of my s igh t,
Down, down. iu their glory and grandeur,
They march like conquering millions
In the deathless corps of time.
Thmarch to the magical spleudor
Of the music of 'nebulous spheres
Those babes in the nursery of Nature,
The offsprig of autuerie;ns years.
And my ::oul ir soothed by the musie

That float through my fretted casement,
As I dream in the waning night.
Mrs Dewsford's Daughter.
Mrs. Dewsford sat in her own
room assiduously employed in fast
ening drie<T15utterflies-on a sheet of:
pasteboard, with an "Encyclopedia
Etymology" of lying on the table be
side her, and a magnifying glass af
fixed in some mysterious manner to
her nose. A spare, prim, hard-feat
uired matron, was Mrs. Dewsford
one whobelievedin Women's Rights,
and thought woman generally a:
much abused personage, deposed
from her proper sphere and tram
pled on by the tyrant Man :
Mrs. Dewsford had come very
sear being a man herself-wh,-t
with a deep voice and bearded chin,
and a figure quite innocent of all
superdluous curves or graces: Really,
if one had changed her skirt and
body to trousers and coat, she
would have passed for one of the
contemned sex without much dii-!
But Lizzie Dewsford was quite
different-Lizzie Dewsford, who
stood beside her mother, with
cheeks round and ripe as a peach,
deep blue eyes made mystic and
shady by their long lashes, and
brown hair wound round and round
her pretty head in shining coils.
You wondered, as you gazed at
her,.Iow they could both be wo
men, and yet so unlike.
"Nonsense, child :" said Mrs.
Dewsford; critically examining a
butterfly with pale yellow wings.
sprinkled with carmine.
"But, mamma," pleaded Lizzie, "it
isn't nonsense. He r-eally does
want to) marry me."
"Marriage is all a mistake. Eliza
beth," said Mrs. Dewsford. laying
* down her magnifying glass. "I
don't mean you shall marry at all."
"A woman who marries," went on
the stronganinded matron. "is a
'woman enslaved. If I had known
-as much about life when I was
eighteen as I do now, I would never
have married. From the stand
point of a grand mistake commit
ted in my life, I can rectify yours.
"But, mamma," cried poor Liz
zie, "what shall I do r
"Do. child: do !" ejaculated the
mother. "That is a pr-etty question
for my daughter tc ask! Why, read

vote all the energies of your nature
to .the solving of the great social
problems that surround you."
"I don't care a pin for the social~
problems, mamma," remonstrated
Lizzy. "I like Charley Everett.
and rm going to marry him !"
"Never, with my consent.
"dop't you see w hat a confusion you
are creating aniong these insects
which I have so carefully classified?
I beg you will interrupt my studies
no longer. Go and finish reading
that Report of the English Conven

mankind. What are you crying
for? A well-regulated woman

I have neither gold nor jewels to
lay on the shrine of the cause : but
I have a daughter, and I intend to
show the world what a woman, un
shackled and unfettered, can be ca
pable of ! You, Elizabeth, should
glory in thus becoming an offer
But Lizzy. apparently unappre
ciative of the great lot in store for
her, cried more piteously than ever.
"Tears will not melt me," said
Mrs. Dewsford, calmly restminf),
the Encyclopedia. "I only re
gret to be the mother of so degene

'Mammia," ventured poor Lizzy
after a few minutes of silent griev

ride out with him this afternoon:
"You must give him up, Elizabeth.
Upon such a subject I can accept
"But I promised, mamma
Mrs. Dewsford gravely rubbed
the end of her nose.
-A promise is a promise, Eliza

to break it.' Here Lizzy visibly
brightened. 'But I shall accom

choice varieties of Adiantum and
Asplenhim to be found in these
woods. and my collection of native
ferns is as yet incomplete.'
And Lizzy went away in great
c nsternation-not toread r-eports,
or to study paleontology, but~ to1
slip out in the garden, where a
reat rose-tree carpeted the velvet
rass with showers of soft pink pc-i
tals at every passing breath of air,
and where Charley Everett was
busy entt-ng out sticks for carna

piteously. 'When we were going

'Oh, Charley, you know I would

'And are two lives to be made'
miserable just because she thinks
matrimony is a mistake?' he asked
-I suppose so, Charley.'
Lizzy Dewsford's pretty head
dropped like a rose in the rain.
Chaley watched her quivering lip
and tear-wet eye-lashes, and said
Mrs. Dewsford was ready with a
preposterous green umbrella to
keep off the sun, a tin case to put
the ferns in, an extra pair of boofs,
in the event of swampy walking,
when Mr. Everett's light photon
drove up to the door. The springs
creaked ominously as she stepped
in:; and Lizzy, meekly following,
was nearly overwhelmed by her
mother's voluminous draperies

the sad and melancholly individual.

But Heine, though born a Dusseh

can not be taken as a specimen of

from him in almost every rescpect.
They are as broad and plain as he
