"Pnt a week is so long!" he said
With a toss of his curly head.
'-One, two, three, four, five, six, seven!
Seven whole days! Why, in six, you know
(You said it yourself-you told me so),
The great God in Heaven
Made all the earth and the seas and skies,
The trees and the birds and the butterflies!
How can I wait for my seed to grow?"
"But a month is so long!" he said,
With a droop of his boyish head.
"Hear me count-one, two, three, foar
Four whole weeks, and three days more;
Thirty-one days, and each will creep
As the shadows crawl over yonder steep;
Thirty-one nights and I shall lie
Watching the stars climb up the sky!
How can I wait till a month is o'er?"
"But a year is so long !" he said,
Uplifting his bright young head.
"But there's much to win, there is much to
A man must labor, a man must choose,
And he must be strong to wait!
The years may be long; but who would wear
The crown of honor, must do and dare!
No time has he to toy with fate,
Who would climb to manhood's high estate!"
"Ah! life is not long!" he said,
Bowing his grand white head,
"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven !
Seven times ten are seventy.
Seventy years! As swift their flight
As swallows cleaving the morning light,
Or golden gleams at even,
Life is short as a sungn!er nl=ht
How long, 0 God! is eternity?'
A BURL OR I DEBDNGj
I am an ardent admirer of fe
male beauty, and ought to have
been an artist or a sculptor, but I
am neither. I was a book-keeper
for Brown & Co., wholesale deal
ers in hides and tallow. Henry
Bower, a young man of very live
ly disposition, was employed in
.the same office. We boarded and
One night Henry and I attend
ed one of the lyceum lectures in
W. We had hardly been in the
hall flye minutes before my atten
tion was fixed upon one of the
ladies in the front seat. She was
a lhttle to the right of me, but a'i
she was talking ver y earnestly to
the lady next to her, her face was
turned towards us ; and suscepti
ble as i am, I could not but be im
pressed by the beauty of' it.
indeed, I could not withdraw
my gaze from the beautiful young
lady before me. She had golden
hair, and her bluest of eyes swam
full of love and sweetness. Her
nose was small and straight, and
she had just the prettiest dimple
among the blushes on either
cheek. And then such a mouth I
What.red lips, teeth of pearl flash
ing between the roses. Her fore.
head was smooth and broad, and
her neck, .1 saw as the fur capo
drooped low on ber shoulders, was
as white as alabaster and smooth
as marble. In brief, I did not
bear a -word of the lcture.
A -month passed without my
seeing anything of my beautiful
stranger. But about that time 1
received an invitation to visit my
friend, Mrs. Sogard, in M. She is
aiwidow of forty, and is the mo
ther of a certain Miss Segard,
familiarly called Clara. I knew
that Mrs. Segard had tried to
bring about a marriage between
Clara and myself, and I believe I
was not much opposed to- the
match. Clara was a good girl,
everybody said; a very pretty
brunette, with flashing black hair
and eyes, but her form was short,
thick and dowdyish. I admire a
handsome form quite as much as
a handsome face. I might have
married her-I really think I
should, but for a little affair that
happened at U.
The morning I started for M,
Bowers accompanied me to the
depot. While I was buying my
ticket, I noticed another gentle
man come into the waiting'-roomn.
My first thought was t hat it was
my shadow that I saw before me.
Ho was about my height, had a
light complexion like mine, and
eyes of grizzly-gray, and one of
them turned in just like mine.
He had on a tall silk hat, tipped
Son one side of his sandy locks, and
so did I; and furthermore, he car
r ried in his band a carpet bag, with
r a tag marked 'J. McD.' tied to the

I looked at him and be returned
'I say, sir,' said the stranger.
looking dowi at the carpet bag I
held, and examining the tag, 'are
you John AeDougal or am I ?'
'My name is McDougal. I hope
you are an honest man, for, you
see, if you should happen to rob a
bank, forge a nuote, pick a pocket
or cut somebody's jugular, I might
have to suffer, perhaps swing for
it. I can give you reference as to
my character,' I answered.
'Yes, th-it's very good. But,
Mr. McDougal, which way are
you going to go ?'
'Dowu. I have just bought my
'Then I'm going up. I don't
think we'd best travel together.
There's the train starting now.
Good-bye, Mr. McDougal. I wish
you success, and for my sake don't
spoil your character.'
To get to M., which, by the
way, is a rather out-of-the way
place, a small, one horse town,
with one tavern, two churches
and a poor house, I had to leave
the cars at T., and then take a
private, conveyance to M., five
miles distant. I could have gone
by the stage, but that leaves U.
once a day at five o'clock in the
So when the ears stopped at U
I took my carpet bag in my hand,
and got out upon the platform.
There was quite a large number
of people at the station, but I took
no notice oi any of them except a
tall, brawny man, in a brown
overcoat and slouched bat, who
started for me as soon as I stepped
off the cars.
I was about to move away
when slouched hat laid his hand
heavily on my shoulder.
'You are a villain 1'
'I repeat it. You're villain
'A miserable scamp,' said a cor
pulent gentleman, coming forward
and scowling fiercely.
'Now, I felt that II was a match
for the latter, but as to the other
one, I did not doubt but he might
work me up into shoestrings in
less than three minutes.
'Will you please explain your
selves, gentlemen,' I asked, try
ing to smile.
'Yes, I will,' answered the big
one, putting great stress on the
'Certainly,' growled the corpu
lent gentleman with a smile.
'Come this way, you rascal,'
said the tall one, drawing me
along with him.
His companion followed us out
back of the station, where we
were out of ight and hearing of
the rest of U.
'Now,' said the tall gentleman,
turning and confronting me, 'I'll
introduce myself. I am Captain
Augustus Boynton. This gentle
man is my father, John Boynton.
Do you know us now ?'
'Well, really,' I :-eplied, wvonder
ing in my own mind what the
deuce was coming, treally I don't
know anything more about you
than what you've just told.'
'Hush !' said the captain, and
he bent down and hissed in my
ear: '1 am Carrie Boyn ton 's
"And I am her father,' growled
'Ah, really, do you say so ?' I
could not help smiling, the whole
affair seemed so ludicrous. 'Give
my regards to Carrie.'
'Ha! you laugh at us, do you,
villain ?' cried thbe captain. 'Look
'ere,' said he lowering his voice to
a hor rid whisper ; 'look at these.'
I did look, for just then he
drew from the pocket of his
brown overcoat a handsome case,
and, opening it, displayed a pair
of splendid silver-mounted duel

A cold tremor.ran through my
frame. Was I to be murdered ?

voice, while the cold drops of per

There were plenty of people
on the street, but I was warned
not to sbout, if I knew wbat was
healthy for me.
We rode at a smart trot fbr
about two miles, I should think,
and then the captain drew rei n

house, that stood near the road,
surrounded by a high white fence

young lady who bad made such
an impression upon my heart the
night of the lecture in W.
'Oh. John! 1 knew you would
be true,' she cried ; and the cap
tain snickered as he led the way
into the parlor.
But once there I succeeded in
convincing Miss Boynton that I
was not McDougal. Her father
apologized, so did the captain, and
the upshot of it all was that I
consented to stop over night with
them, and I am h appy to state
that I passed a very pleasan t even

taken, aas a gentleman of wealth

acquainted with. Then I told my
story, anel both Mr. Boynton and
the captain seemed pleased, and
so did Carrie, especially when I
offered to stand in McDougal's
shoes. And-well, my dear read
er, I did about a month after
wards. We bad a great wedding,
and Clara Segard was one of the'
bridesmaids, and Henry Bower
was groomsman. And I am well
satisfied that McDougal took the
up train instead of the down.
LEAVE OF ABsENCE.-On Mon
day morning (says a Paris cor
respondent) a clerk applied to his
superior for permission to be ab
sent forty-eight hours on some
family affairs and received an
affirmative answer. However, he
did not appear during the whole
of the week, and no one knew to
Nhat cause to attribute his ab
sence. On the following Monday
morning he re-appeared at the
'Well, monsieur,' demanded his
superior, 'why have you stayed
away all the week ?'
'You, sir,' replied the clerk,
'gave ime permission.'
'1 gave you leave for forty-eight
hours only, and not for six days.'
'1 beg your pardon, sir,' an
swered the young man, '1 have
only taken the exact time which
you granted me. We work here
eight hours a day, and six times
eight are forty-eight. I certainly
had no occasion to ask your per
mission for the night, any more
than for the hours which 1 do not
owe to the administration.'
*This was logical ; but since that
day the chief specifies by admin
istrative hours the duration of the
leave he grants.

M. Pasteur has resolved to extend
his studies in vaccination to yellow
fever, with a view of determining
whether or not the disease is due to
parasites and can be guarded against
by iaoculation. A broad field of in

A Neapolitan gardener, after years

Mr. C. Shaler Smith has given the
results of extensive obervations in re
lation to the pressure exerted by
the wind. The most violent gale re i
corded by him was at East St.
Louis, in 1871, when the wind over
turned a locomotive, the force devel
oped in so doing being no less than
93 pounds per square foot. At St.
Charles a jail was destroyed in
1877, the pressure required being
84 pounds per square foct. At
Marshfield, in hI880, a brick mansion
was leveled, the force necessary being
58 -pounds per square foot. Below
these extraordinary pressures, Mr.
Smith instances numerous eases of
trains blown off rails, and bridges,
etc., blown down by gales of 24 to 31
pounds pe. square foot. In all the
examples the lowest force required to
do the observed damage has been
taken as the maximum power of the
wind, although, of course, it may
have been higher.
Enthusiasts who make a special
sudy of sun-spots and attendant phe
nomena believe that the corner-stoPe
of a new science is being laid by dis
coveries pointing to an intimate con
nection between solar and terrestrial
meteorology. Juat what the connec
tion is they are not yet able to clearly
define, although electricity is sus
pected of' being the agent through
which the effects are manifested upon
our planet. It is known that the
gaseous envelope of the sun is affected
by eruptions of such prodigious mag
nitude as to be utterly beyond our'
power of conception, these disturb
ances appearing to us in the form of,
rapidly changing spots and protuber
anes. The eras of the spots-or
sun-storms-occur at remarkably reg
ular intervals, a complete cycle of the
various stages of activity from maxi
mum to minimumu and again to miax
imum being performed in about
eleven years-the so-called 'sun-spot
period.' Tne sun-spot physicists clajim
a coincidence of the periods of maxi
mum spots and years of great at
mospheric and physical disturbance1
in the earth. The present has been
a year of great solar disturbances,
while it has been marked upon
our globe. Further than this, by
