The world thou seek'st to know
Is often dark and drear;
Shadows around may fall.
The hill thou climb'st is high,
The prize is great and near;
Write "duty" on thy heart,
The road is smooth to all
Who have a conscience clear;
Walk wisely on thy path
Be firm! If fortune fails,
Life's burdens do not fear;
Go forth with manly pride,
Few fail who seek to win,
None stray who righ tly steer.
Thine is the prize if thou
Around the darkest storm
The sun's bright beams appear,
With light and hope for all
The world's temptations scorn;
Let others wealth revere;
Be strong in right, detest the wrong,
Then, when life's twilight fades,
The thought will give thee cheer
That thou in trials passed.

BY ALFRED JEFFERSON.
The bright rays of a bright
June day's sun were fast disap
pearing in the distant west, and
shed a mellow reflection through
out the quiet and unromantic vil
lage of Norwalk. The little birds
had ceased their sweet carols and
sought the comfort of their nests,
and all assumed the stillness of

be seen a young man ; a broad
brimmed straw bat hid from view
his countenance, and his eves
were pensively fixed on the
ground before him, as if in medi

claimed a bright-eyed little girl,
who had been anxiously watch
ing at the gate for his coming;
and away she ran to greet him.
Impressing a kiss upon her rosy
cheek he raised her in his arms
and carried her into the house,
and placed her in her litle chair
beside him at the supper table.
'Walter,' said an old man, who
had just returned from the gar
den, with an armful of vegetibles
for the evening meal, 'who was
that I saw you walking home
with this evening, and wvhom ycu
bade such an affectionate adieu?'
The questioner was Richard
Sanford, an erratic old man and
father of Walter, who eked out a
scanty livelihood by cultivating
vegetables, and *supplying the
wants of the surrounding neigh
bors, his mean ways and harsh
temper had caused the young peo

Walter, with some hesitation.

in her ways; her beauty was such
that even in the humble garments
that she wore, the envy of the
village belles was perceptible.
It was for her that Walter first

After Walter had left the house,
he wandered, with sorrowful
thoughts,.to the residence of Miss
Thompson. Greeting him at the
door with her accustomed wel
come, she bade him enter, aed
they were soon seated together in
a, neat apartment.
'What ails you, Walter? You
seem downcast,' inquiringly she

bosom, 'I cannot endure it longer;

gave me the choice between you
and the shelter of his roof.'
'Walter,' she said, after a short
silence, 'if your father does not

trust as a dutiful son you wrill

closely her little hand, 'to be
banished from you and those star
light eyes would be death to me.
No, come what may, I will never
forsake you even death cannot
part us! I have concluded to
leave my father's roof, and to
norrow muorning I leave this, my
native village, and you for a time.'
'But I cannot endure your ab
sence,' she said, as she laid her
head upon his bosom and sobbed
as though her heart would
'Endure it bravely, Bella, dear
est,' he said ; 'it will be but a brief
time, I trust.' Drawing from his
pocket a plain gold ring, he placed
it on her finger. 'With the know
ledge of your love and fidelity, 1
can go forth and work with more
vigor and earnestness to obtain a
comfortable home for us.'
She willingly promised to re.
main true and to endeavor to keep
up a courageous heart un til his re
turn, and sealing the promise with
a kiss, he took his leave and re
traced his way homeward.
The following morning dawned
bright and clear, and, rising early,
he sought his father and acquaint
ed him with his conclusion ; the
old man forbade him ever darken
ing his door again, and remarked
that when he left bis roof it was
never to return. Bidding his mo
ther and little sister (who stood
by in tears) an aftectionate adieu,
with a small valise in his hand,
and a brave heart, he started on
is unknown journey.
For days and weeks he sought
in vain in the neighboring State
for employment until desperation
almost seized him.
It was one day while wander
ing through the large manufactur
ing town of Lynn that he was
prompted to inquire for employ
ment. and, entering the office of a
large manufactory, he related his
grievance to one of the members
of the firm, and was told to apply
for work the following Monday.
The prospect of employment
cheered his drooping spirits, and,
on the following Monday he re
turned, and was rewarded with a
remunerative position. The glad
news was hastily conveyed in a
long letter to his betrothed far
away, and in a few days a con
gratulatory and che ing reply
* * * * * *
'Twas a cold, snowy night in
the month ot January that a man
was seen wending his way through
the deep snow, in the village of
norwalk; to the residence of Miss
Thompson. Entering the house,
he met her on the threshold, and
hawnde. her a sele lter. Tear
ing it asunder in a hasty manner,
she read as follows:
I regret to announce to you the
sad news of the death of Mr.
Walter Sanford, in my employ,
who.died this morning from thc
effects of injuries received by be
coming entangled in the ma
chinery at which he was working.
I have telegraphed to his father,
but he refuses to receive the re
mains of his son and refers me to
you. What disposition shall be
made of them ?
GEORGE R. BEST.
The. sudden news completely
overcame her, and, uttering a
piercing shriek she fell senseless
to the floor, grasping the unwel
come letter in her hand.
A doctor was hastily summoned,
and with the aid of restoratives
she was soon brought to con

lay on the bed, pale as death. 'No,
he will return to me again.'

ed ; by her industry and frugality
she had managed to save from
her scanty earnings a sum suffi
cient to defray the funeral ex
penses of her lover.
The following day. the remains
arrived, and over the coffin the
poor heart-broken girl bent to
take a farewell view of her lover.
The neighbors of the village, by
whom Walter was greatly be
loved, because of his exemplary
habits and genial disposition,.camne
in throngs to take a parting look;
and some rendered the scene more
cheerful by contributing flowers
as tokens of their friendsbip.
The hour for the burial arrived,
and the coffin borne on the
shoulders of four stalwart young
men of the village, and a pro
cession formed of the kind-hearted
neighbo rS, slowly moved to the
village cemetery, with the poor
broken-hearted girl leaning on the
arm of her' aged mother, as chief

broken-hearted girl, whose love
was true unto death.

A New Improvement.
THE NEW BONNET.
New bonnets are so similar in out
line to those of the winter, that the
desire for distinction which seems in
herent in the human breast, must
needs find scope in other directions.
So, in consequence, there is often
times the most lavish piling together
of extreme colors that ever you saw,
while manufacturers of flowers, al
though sometimes content with giv
ing them -to us in patterns copied af
ter nature, have oftener prefered to
go far beyoud her modest dictates and
thus we see enormous red or yellow
daisies, asters twice the size of those
that, a garden ever produced, etc., etc.
There is a strong partiality for wide
open many petaled flowers and there
fore any variety coming under such
appellation is sought for. Foli
age is at a discount and though not
abandoned, is but sparingly inter
mixed and for the most part in unpre
tentious shades of green. Flowt.rs in
oorisequence, are massed in rows or
great bunches. with staring effect, but
we have grown accustomed to these
pronounced dispositions and scarcely
look at them. Yet a toning down of
extravagant results is oftentimes pro.
duced by soft serge silk in one deli
cate shade throughout or by the use
.of solid colored ribbon. Other silks
and ribbons however are extremely
bright and in varied combinations as
to color ; striped ribbons are quite
fashionable and dots, both in self color
and in gay contrasts and of all sizes,
are much in vogue.
Combination suits are genuine com
binations, for the two materials are
united throughout, and this to the
disadvantage of a skirt of one fabric
and overdress of another. The latter
idea indeed is almost wholly .excluded
except in case of some elegant light
material, but even here, the skirt
should correspond in tone with what
is worn above and there is almost al
ways a unity apparent somwhere.
Trimmed skirts and basques are ex
tremely fasuionable and in this~ style
we find the Delphine costume which
embodies the latest ideas. Even wash
dresses follow, and are shown ready
made with inclined, tight fitting
basque or half fitting jacket which
can be belted in. In general, the
trimming on the skirt is so arranged
that it can be displaced for washing,
but it is of course more convenient to
have a separate~ overshirt and here
we find the Mabrilia which is at once
simple and graceful. The Gwendo
line costume, suitable for silk or wool,
is made with a long coat shaped bas
que and trained shirt on which the
drapery is very handsomely disposed
and the Croisette basque would be
quite becoming to a full figure as it is
long and plain on the sides. For
traveling, the Windsor redingote an
swers the same purpose as an ulster,
but it is of newer shape. Wash dresses
are constantly relieved by ribbon bows
and silk or wool costumes are also
adorned in like manner. but to a lim
ited extent only. Buttons are a fav
orite addition to the last named
varieties of outfits and are in such
diversity that a description would be
never ending. At times they orna
mert costumes of plain wool instead of
brocade and form a beautiful and
glittering finish. Everywhere there
is a rage for shirring, so muchl so that
it can hardly be overdone or mis
placed. But plaitings are likewise
In kid gloves the Harris kid lace
top is extremely elegant and especially
adapted to summer wear, as an oppor

beautifal finish at the top. Such fin
ish is of kid finely cut to resemble
lace and it is so skilfully done that
the imitation is remarkable. It is
either of utiiformu color with the glove,
or of white kid contrasted with some'
stylish shade and altogether is by far

THE DISCONTENTED HEN.
Mrs. Speckle lived in a fine large
coop, situated under the pleasant
shade of an old apple-tree, and
though she had as cunning a little
brood of chickens as one would
wish to see, yet she was not con
tented. One fine June morning, as
she was gazing longingly out at
the green fields, the Misses Pullets
came sauntering airily along, in all
the pride of their new spring suits
of buff and brown.
"Ab, poor, dear Mrs. Speckle !"
said they, "we are so sorry you
can't come with us this beautiful
morning. We are taking a stroll
to the gardens. We have heard
that there are green peas large
enough to eat, and Tommy Cocka
doodle says that Farmer Thrifty
has a whole field of ripe strawber
"Ah !" sighed Mrs. Speckle, wip
ing her nose upon the grass, "I
should be delighted to go with
you. I haven't had much appe
tite lately, and a little garden sauce
would do me good, I know ; it is
so long since I have tasted any
vegetables or fruit. But here I
am, cooped up, you see, and can't
leave home while my obickens are
so young. For my part, I don't
see how any one can like house
keeping. I know that I never
shall, to the longest day that I
"Ah, poor dear ! We are very
sorry for you." said the pullets.
"Perhaps we can bring you a
strawberry or a pea, but we must
be going now. Good-bye," and off
they tripped, daintly picking their
way towards the garden.
Their .call did not make Mrs.
Speckle any happier, and after
they were gone, she began walk
ing up and down in a very ruffled
state of mind and feathers. Being
wholly occupied with her'self, she
stepped without regard upon sev
eral of the chickens, which made
them cry out, "p e e p, peep,
"Dear me !" exclaimed their mo
ther, crossly, giving Bobby a sharp
peck on the head. "Did any one
ever see such chickens, always
'around under one's feet." Do go
out and scratch."
Away they all scampered, and
Bobby, wishing to soothe his
wonded feelings with a bug,
scratched away so briskly that he
tummbled over on his back. Then
they all laughed at him, and poor
Bobby felt worse than ever. To
be pecked on the head, and be
laughed at beside, was more than
he could bear; so he went away
alone and stood under a rosebush,
feeling himself a very ill-used
Not long after the pullets had
left Mrs. Speckle, Mrs. Drab, a
very sedate old hen, came to call on
her, with Miss Black. a very
sprightly young fowl of Spanish
descent,whbo had quite a mind of her
own. "Good morning, S i s t e r
Speckle," said Mrs. Drab. "Why,
what is the matter? you look out
of sorts t h is morning." Mr's.
Speckla, who was usually quite1
vain of her good looks, smoothed.
down her ruffled feathers a little,
and answered in a querulous tone:
"3fatter! I should think it was I
enough to kill any hen to be shut f
up here day after day, as I am, withf

"La, now, my dear, don't you
fret," said Mrs. Drab. "'The chick
ens will soon be large enough for
you to leave home, and take 'em
abroad. You won't have much
trouble with 'em after that. Why,
just think of me; I've raised four
broods without any fuss at all, and
never lost but three out of the
whole lot of 'em, either."
"Well," said Miss Black, pertly,
I think it is a burning shame for
,hen to be shut up in this man
ner, without having any say in the
matter, and entirely against her
will. I don't see why we should
be trodden upon just because we
ire hens. I believe that hens
should have their liberty as much
is roosters, and I for one, declare
igainst coops. They are an indig
ity to which we should not submit.

Miss Top-Knot, who had beeti

root, put her head on one side, and
5rying to look very wise, said that
she should like to know why hens
