Only a woman, shriveled and old !
The play of the winds and the prey of the
Cheeks that ire shrur.ken,
Eyes that are sunken,
Lips that were never o'er hold.
Only a woman forsaken and poor, e
Asking an alms at the bronze church door.
Hark to the organ! roil upon roll
The waves of the music go over her soul! s
Silks rustle past her
Thicker and faster;
The great bell ceases its toll,
Fain would she enter, but not for the poor
Swingeth wide open the bronze church door.
Only a woman-waiting alone,
Icily cold, on an ice-cold throne.
What do they care for her ?
Mumbling a prayer for her,
Giving not bread, but a s tCm.
Under old laces their haugh Ty hearts beat,
Mocking the woes of their kin in the street.
Only a woman! In the old days i
Hope caroled to her her happiest lays; l
Somebody missed her,

Somebody crowned her with praise; a
Somebody faced up the battles of life
Strong for her sake who was mother, or wife.
Somebody lies with a tress of her hair e

Somebody waits for her, e

Giving delight for despair. J

A Controversy With Cupid.
'Little wretch ! I hate him. o
We have never had a moment's e
peace since he tcok possession of a
the house,' declared Polly Patten, n
with a stamp of her foot.
Thbe 'he' referred to was not, as w
might be supposed, a tramp or a i
sheriff's officer, not even a poor c
relation. or an Irish butler, or a fr
heathen Chinee. Not at all. The ti
object of Polly's wrath was a b
personage lifted up, as it would i
seem, by virtue of his position, b
above human cr-iticism as above
human rules, a my th, an unknown ci
entity-no other, in fact, thani the s
little god cupid himselt. He and a
is machinations had of late
wrought changes-wofuil ones, t
Polly thought-in the constitu
tion of the Patten family ; and to a
er imagination represented all f
manner of Jliscomfort and dis- a
cofiture, the alteration of plans, s
the blight of' hopes-innovations e
and cross-purposes without end
Se felt toward him a good, hon-0o
est, bearty hostility, as one may n
toward an- opponent of flesh and
blood, as she sat in her bed-room,
inveiging upon the subject to her b
special friend Susan Gilmore, who
was perched beside her on the a
'Oh, it's all very well to !augh,'
she went on ; 'but just wait tillI
you try it yourself. All last year
was given up, you know, to mar
rying Helen. Her trousseau, anda
her presents, and her furnishing
--ntiges was thought of or
spoken of for twelve long months. t
The house was choked with her d
things. We all wor-ked our fin- a
gers to the bone. Nobody could C
turn ronnd without finding a wo
man and a sewing machine at his
back. We never even pretended J1
to hear ourselves speak. Well,
just as it was all over, and Helen
comtortably off our minds, Lizzie P
must needs set up a lover and a '
long engagement. John Shaw, too, S
of all persons ! Now I may be e
dull, but in the ntame of common c
sense why John Shaw, of all men6
in the world ?''
Lizzie knows, I presume.' a
Well, perhaps she does ; still, it ~
is provoking. Eve:-y morning of e
his life John Shaw looks in for C
half an hour on his way down 'I
town. He and Lizzie absorb the 1t
parlor, of course. That is all
right, no doubt ; but, as it hap- t
pens, that particular baIt hour is C
precisely the one wbich I used ,
always to take to tidy up the flow
ers, water and trim, fill the vases, c
and make the room nice for the e
day. and want of it puts me out t
dreadfully. I sit and twirl my t
thumbs, and scold to mother, and r
she never will agree with me.v
'Lovers 9.re privileged,' she says.' lb
'Of course they are. Don't bo t
a spoil-sport, Polly.- It's their
un now. Yours will come.' i
'ever ! But there's more be- E
iind. What do you say to Eunice's
ndulging in an engagement too ?' t
'Not really ?'
*Iery realhy indeed. John Nor- I
nan is the happy iran this time.
['w Johns, you observe, by way r
f making the confusion greater.
o they sit in the dining-room r
very evening, w hile Lizzie and s
er John occupy the parior.'
'And where do the rest of you
'Echlo answers. We sit wherever's
ce may. Mother takes her mend
ig-basket upstairs, and has a c
tudent-lamp on the IOUfldi table i
;i the upper entry. Papa sbuts t
imself up in that dreadful little
lose den' of his, or goes to the .
fnice. I observe that be has busi- i
ess there of evenings much of
ener than formerly--because there o
no comfortable place for him at j
ome, no doubt. Jim makes a
oiut of being out. As for Amy y
nd m~e, we sit on the back stairs, j
r in the butler's pantry, or any b
ther odd corner which nobody
se wants.' Polly laughed, but b
here w ere tears in her brow n e
yes, and a very mutinous look
bout the pretty mouth, which a
ohn Norman, while in process of C
sampling the family,' to borrow (
olly's own phrase, had once b
kened to beautiful Evelyn o
Lope's, of true 'geranium red.'
'As if all this wasn't enough,' b
be went on presently with a half n
iggle, half sob, 'here is a letter n
xme to-day from Fanny Allen- G
ur cousin, you know-and she is e
ngaged too ; and she proposes to t
iake us a visit, and her young f
ian means to 'drop along,' for- b
>oth, while she is here. Now d

'Oh, if they only would ! If h

ever wvalk this way, how corn
rtable it would be ! Sue, you d

raced his parallels, resolved to It

omplication set the seal to Pol. u

An ingenious way- to raise a set
of slips has been recommended
by Mrs. Loudon, which we have
tried with unvarying success. It
is to take an earthen ware flower
p)ot, gallon-size, and fill it more
than half full of broken potsbreds,
pebbles, bits of slate or such
things ; now set in the middle, on
top of these refuse materials, ano

let its mouth be even with that of

interstices with silver sand or
other pure sand, and set in a row
of slips all aronud, cut according
to the dir-ections given above.
Keep the inner pot full of water
all the time6, but do not water the
slips dlirec-tly. In about six weeks
your slips will have fine roots, and
can be potted. A hand-glass al
