SINCERITY.
Oh' bring me now sincerity,
A true and living verity;
Le: life be short yet ever true;
In everything we think or do,
Let's have sincerity.
Alas! the world is leiity:
Yet there's scant truth in brevity;
And cruel wit is sharp as steel,
Regardless of how others feel,
Who love sincerity.
Cease, word, this idle mockery,
This worse than foolish foppery,
;; For souls are lost upon the sea
Of mocking words, that cannot be
In truth sincerity..
I ask not sullen gravity,
Nor apist, fawning suavity,
But simple, quiet, genial truth,
All brightly told by cheery youth,
With warm sincerity.
Then all would live so joyously,
All-uatere ='nld seem heavenly,
True smiles enwreathe each happy face,
And beauty gain that rarest grace,
God's own sincerity.

Rachel Ramsay looked very
pretty indeed as she came down
the narrow' wooden staircase of
the little brown farmhouse that
afterroon, dressed in a white
muslin dress, strewn all over with
tiny pink rosebuds, and a f.sb
lace frill abdut her neck, tied with
a pink ribbon, while her pretty
feet were buttoned into a new
pair of boots, with high French
heels, and her hair was curled in
loose, glossy coils if shining
bronze.
Eh I' said Granny Ramsay,
looking up from her everlasting
knitting-work, over which she
was half asleep; 'goin' to church,
beyv?
'It isn't Sunday, grandma,' ex
plained the girl, laugbing and
coloring. 'I'm going to the Tower
to see Miss Calhoun. She has
often invited me there-she and
Miss Bell.'
'Pshaw I' said Granny Ramsay,
who was one of those venerable
people privileged to speak their
minds on all occasions ; 'what do
the fine city ladies at the Tower
want of a farmer's daughter like
you?'
'But, grandma, they've invited
me l'
'It reminds me,' said grandma,
ebi'ewdly, 'of the old story of the
a.---iron pot and the china pot swim
ming down stream together ; and
they didn't nowise suit..'
Rachel said nio more but es
capedi out into the shady lane,
where the maples were begin
Ding to turn pale -yellow in the
first September frosts.
'Gandma is always criticising
everybody,' she thought. 'I know
the ladies at the Towcr will be
glad to see me. Miss Alice wants
to sketch my head for 'Elaine,'.
and Miss Bell asked me to sing
duets with her. She said I had a
voice like a lark. And perhaps
Mr. Harold Haroldson will be
there! For I know he often
visits at the house.'
And Rachel smiled to herself
as she crossed the rustic bridge
and web t through the woods to the
Tower, a fantastic woodeni cot
t.age with a semi-circular front,
which was let for the sum mer, the
owoaer thereof preferring to live
in a square brick structure in the
village.
The little side door was open
arnd Rachel went in. From the
left of the passage way a door
opened into the kitchen, and
there to her infinite amnazemelPnt
she saw Miss Alice Calhoun her
'7 self, in an esthetic dress of pale
sage green, and roses in her bair,
contemplating a pair of decapita
ted fowls which lay on the table.
'Miss Alicia !' she exclaimed.
'Is it you, Rachel?' cried the
City young lady, pouncing on her
as a drowning man pounces on the
Dearest floating straw. 'Oh, I
sever was so glad to see senyoody
rai in all my life!i These horrid
:e- hens! Bridget has gone away
hee in a rage because I presumed to
find fau4t with the coffee this
.e morning, and we have company for
lieutdinner, and I haven't an idea how
k tbe ~to ge; the feathers off' these
?the m
creatures. But now that you are
bere everything will be right !'
And she took off the big bib
apron and stepped back with a
sigb of relief.
Rachel looked perplexed. Sue
had come there not to enact the
role of kitchen maid, but to visit
Miss Calhoun, to sit in her draw
ing.room and enjoy the cooversa
tion of her guests, and she did
not exactly relish this summary
dismisal to the kitchen.
'There is soup stock,' went on
Miss Alice, and a ralad, and a
dhlicate piece of halibut, and with
the fiwls roasted and a piece of
pie or pudding or something
which I 'iare say you can make,
we shall do very nicely. I'm
particularly anxious about the
dinner because we are to have
company. You'll excuse me now,
because I have to dress.'
And away tripped Miss Alice,
selfish'and smiling as ever was
Queen Cleopatra's self
Poor Rachel I She stood a min.
ute in the hot kitcop, the t,ears
springing to. her eyes, a pang of
disappointment at her heart. She
knew all about it. Harold liar
oldson and Mr. Dallas were to
dine there that day, and she-she
was to be cook, waitress, maid-of
all-work-what signified it what
she called herself ? She remem
bered what grandma had said,
and for once in her life gave that
venerable lady credit for discrim
ination.
T1here was no help for it, how
ever. She tied on the bib apron,
tucked the curls back of her ears
and went to work to prepare the
chickens for the roasting pan,
now and then pausing to brush
away the round, bright tears
which rolled down her cheeks.
These young ladies evidently
intended to make her s.e.fgl. She
might have known that they did
beforehand. She could bear the
soft sound- of Bell Calhoun's
guitar; the sweet, subdued tinkle
of Alice's laughter ; the deep.
mohotonous undercurrent of gen
tlenen's voices; and then she
glanced down at her pretty mus
lin dress and bows of pink ribbon
and began to think that Miss
Calhoun had taken an unfair ad
vantage of her.
If she could only have heard
the rapid and energetic colloquy
which transpired between the
two sisters in their dressing-room
when first Alicia came upstairs
she would perhaps have better
comprehended the drift of things.
'Good news!' Mss Calhoun
had cried, waving her scented
pocket handkerchief in the air.
'I've got a girl in the kitchen !'
'No l' said Miss Bell, a fair-haired
cream-complexioned damsel, with
pale blue eyes and a perpetual
smile.
'Rachel Ramsay,' nodded Alice,
'Come up here in her best bib and
tucker to spend the day. Of
course I confiscated her at once.'
'The bold, pushing thing!I' said
Bell, with a disdainful gesture.
'She's a deal too pretty to bring
into the drawing-room for Harold
son and Armine Dallas to flirt
with,' added Miss Alice, know
ingly. 'And I don't see any way
that I could have avoided it if it
hadnr't been for thos'e lucky
clbickens and Bridget's fortunate
tit of temper. Make haste now.
Trhey'll be here in a mainute. And
I know little Rachel is a first-class
cook for I've been there to tea.'
So the young ladies of the
Tower were enjoying the feast of
reason and the, flow of soul in
their cool drawinig-roomn, with
b)ooks, new-gathered roses and
blue ribboned guitars, while poor
Racbel Ramnsay was broiling in
the kitenen over peach-tarts and
Neapolitan creams.
She had not forgotten her dis
appointment ; but, artist- like, she
had thrown herself into her occu
pation with engrossing interest,
and she was stirring the creams
with a quick, energetic hand,
whed a step crossed the thres
hold.
'Here are some fresh trout,
Bridget, to surprise your mistress,'
said a clear voice.
. Arnd to her infinite amazement
Hlarold Haroldeon stood - before
Iher in his hunting costume, with
a fishing-rod lightly balanced on
bis shoulder.gil
'I'm not Bridget.,' said the girl,
laughing, but still stirring on.
'I'm Rachel.'
'Miss Ramsay l' he exeiaimed,
lifting his cap. 'How in the name
of all that is wonderful came you
bere?'
And then, not without humor,
Rachel detailed the manner and
incidents of her capture.
'I am the maid-of.all-work, if
you please,' she said, with a court
esy.
'Then let me help yon,' said
Mr. Haroldson, briskly tying a
second bib apron around his hunt
ing suit. 'I used to be pretty
good hand at spider and gridiron
when I camped out on Lake Cup
suptic up in Maine.'
'But you're not engaged,' said
Rachel half-pleased. half-frighten
ed.
'I can volunteer,' observed the
young man. 'Give me the oil and
vinegar, and you will see what a
dressing a Ia mayonnaise I can
provide for that salad of yours.'
And if ever a pair of cooks
spent a delightful unconventional
sort. of morning in the kitchen
this pair did.
They laughed, they made inno
cent jokes, they behaved like two
school children.
And at 1.st when Rachel had
rr.i out into the garden to gather
some water cresses to deck the
newly-roasted fowls, Mr. Harold
son heard the voice of Miss Bell
Calhoun calling down the stair
way
'Rachel ! Rachel ! you may serve
the dinner. Every one is here
but that tiresome Haroldson I'
' 'And lhe's here, too,' calmly re
sponded that gentleman, who was
washing his hands at the pump.
'What!' cried Bell, shrilly.
'The cook and butler are ex
pected to tgke their meals in the
kitchen,' said Mr. Haroldson,
with commendable gravity. 'And
I've no objection whatever to that
arrangement.'
And nothing could induce Har
old Horoldson to come up-to the
dining-room, He and Rachel to
gether ate their picni.ing sort of
repast and washed the dishes
although the matter somewhat
lost its spice when the Misses
Calhouie and their company all
adjourned en masse to the kitch
on and persisted in joining their
ranks.
.And when the purple sunset
came dreamily down over the dark
cedars that overhung the braw
ling stream and the gay-guests
had all departed, Alice and Bell
Calhoun gazed dubiously at each
other.
'Was ever anything so provok
ing ?' said Bell.
'He has actually gone home
with her !' said Alice, bursting
in to angry tears.
'And after all the pains we took
to keep them apart !' sighed
Bell.
'It was all your fault'y petulant
ly exclaimed Alice. 'Noticing
that farmer's daughter and drag
ging her out of her sphere in that
sort of way !'
'But it was you that plumed
yourself on getting her into the
kitchen !' scolded Bell. 'And a
nice mess you've made of it !'
'But how were we to tell that
it was going to end so ?' gr-oaned
poo)r Alice.
* *. * * * *
'Well, Rache!,' said Granny
Ramsay, when the girl came in.
just as the lamps were lighted.
'whst sort of a day did you
have ?'
'Oh, charmiiing !' said Rachel. '1
enjoyed myself more than ever I
did before at the Tower, and I
never went out of the kitche.n.
They had1 company and1 I helped
get dinner.'
'ilumph. l' grunted granny.
-TIhat's a queer i ay of enter.in-.
ing visitors. But p'raps that's
city manners.'
'Perhaps it is,' said Rachel, de
murely.
'Who was it came home with
you,' asked Granny, who was not
quite deaf or blind as yet, 'and1
left you at the garden gate ?'
'One of the other servants,' said
Rachel.
'Well, I never !' said granny.
'Where's all your pride, Rachel
Ramisay ?'
'I never was prouder in all my
life than I am to night !' said
Rachel.
'Listen, grandma, for I bave so
much to tell you. Mr. Harold
Haroldson, of New York, walked
home with me; and ['ve met him
ever so many times before this
summer at picnics and archery

never knew that he cared for me,
And to-night he asked me to mar

'Do you love him ?' said Gran
ny Ramsay, huskily.
And Rachel answered :
'Yes!'
'Then God bless you, my child
and give you both a long and hap

smoothing the girl's bright bead.
And every one was satisfied ex

LETTER FROM COLORADO.
Special Correspondence.
LEADVILLE, COL., August 11, 1882.
The shortest route from Denver to
Leadville is by the Denver & South
Park narrow guage railroad though
he route vin Cannon City and
,he Arkansas Canon is probably
the most picturesque. The ride over
be mountains by the former route is
.ertainly as exhilarating as could be
wished. A few miles from Denver
the railroad strikes into the canon of
.he Platte, which it follows up
rhrough a narrow gorge between the
mountains for about fifty miles, gain
ing an altitude at the summit of 10,
340 feet, or about 5,000 feet above
Denver. The scenery through this
,anon is grand beyond description.
At no place is it-much more than a
stone's throw in width, and most of
6he way the railroad bed he been ex
,avated out of the solid rock. As we
iscended the mountain cool breezes
swept through the canon as through a
Funnel; yet in spite of this little dis
:omfort passengers cannot resist the
temptation to ride on the platform of
the cars in order to enjoy the grand
lnd impressive scenery. On one side
>f the track the Platte River, here a
wild mountain stream, dashes down
through the canon over an almost
anbroken succession of rapids, and
3ataracts. Here and there a deep
pool of clear water was provokingly
suggestive of trout fishing, and the
iisciples of Isaae Walton will invol
antarily divide their attention be
tween these tempting spots and the
rocks that rose hundreds of feet on
either side, worn by the river into all
sorts of fantastic shapes, and some
times appearing almost to close over
the river and railroad.
It is not an easy task to adequately
describe this the most wonderful of
all mining towns. There is iiothing
ike it in Colorado, or anywhere else,
and with all that has been written
coneerning it only those who have
been here to see for themselves have
a very correct idea of the place.
Though the rapidity of its growth is
not such as it was three and four
years ago, when the Leadviile exeite
ment swept the entire land, yet it is
still a wonder, growing and constant
ly changing. It has from the first
beEn like a kaleidosocope in the sud
dienness of its transformations, though
its colors were o'f the sin,plest kind,
and of the most sombre, too. In the
early days entire streets were opened
up, built upon and settled within a
week ; and even now stores, houses,
log-eabins, arnd hotels spring up sud.
de.nly, side by side. There is an
opera house constructed out of rough
pine boards, with its dress circle and
gallery, and looking for all the woild
like an unfinished livery stable. There
are also variety theatres where the il
legitiwate drama fiourishes to the de.
light of sturdy miners.- Two years
ago there was but one church and one
school house here and the principal
hoteliwas a two story frame building
with neat gables ad an imitatiol
mansard roof. The office of this
hostelry is about six feet wide by
sixt.cen long, and was evidently not
planned for the accomniodation of loaf
ers. That large ckss of the populatior
are given room in b ar and billiari
hall opening from the office. A soli
tary barber plies his occupation at one
end of the same apartment, charging
25 cents for a shave and 50 for a hair
cut. The Grand has in its day turn
ed away from 50 to 100 people a day
over and above all it could accommo
date with lodgings. Leadville has
never been a particularly religious
place, and even in the days when
there was only one church to 10,000
inhabitants an audience of 50 worship
pers was about the average. I have
been told about the following notice
posted in the old church, but have
not seen it : 'Please do not shoot the
organist; he does his best.'
In the general character of the
place there has not been much change
from- what it was from the first, ex
cept that the evidences of hasts are
not so plentiful and the buildings are
better and more substantially built
and there is a little more of the at
mosphere of permanency. But all
the details I might give would after all
afford the reader little.idea of Lead
ville as it is, or its surroundings as
they appear to the actual observer.
Let one imagine himself penned up in
the wildest fastnesses of the iacky
Mountains at an altitude of 10,000
feet above the sea. He is literally on
the mountain tops. Yet far above
Leadville on every hand rise the bald
crowns of the snowy range-desolate,
bleak, and absolutely without vegeta
tion of any kind. Here in the gul
ches are forests of pine and evergreen,
which extend far.up the sides of the
adjacent peaks. But the timber line
is as strongly marked and as clearly
cut on every side as if human hands
had been at work cleering away every
trace of tree or shrub along the line
of a survey, and as if the same hands
bad planed off the mountain summit
to the smoothness and barreness of a
country school-yard. To the stran
ger, coming from the luxuries and
comforts of civilization, Leadville pre
sents an aspect of unutterable desola
tion. Approaching by the old stage
road, one of the first indications
which the stranger has that he is in the
vicinity of a city is the rude cemetery
which he passes at the lower end of
Chestnut street. It is a gloomy,
cheerless place, especially when seen
in the late twilight, and is suggestive
of many a tragedy in real life. Of
the several hundreds who have been
buried here, scores died among
strangers, leaving nothing by which
their friends in tho East might be
found or informed of their fate. The
little mounds arranged in rows be
neath the few trees that have been
left standing are bare of grass, and
some of them are covered with the
dry brown needles that fell from the
pines in the early Spring. Plain
board slabs stand for head-stones and
tell the brief story that will be for
gotten when they crumble and dis
appear. The grave-yard of a new
town is generally a chilling, desolate
spot; that of Leadville is superlatively
so.
It was about the middle of the
summer in 1878 that the value of
Leadville as a 'carbonate camp' was
discovered. California -Gulch on
which the present town stands was an
old mining camp, having been work.
ed for .gold from 1859 to 1867, the
yield running down from $5,000,000
in 1860 to about $150,000 in 186,
when the diggings were abandoned.
In those days it is said the gold
miners caulked their log cabins with
what they supposed was mud, but
was really carbonate worth $400 a
ton. Who discovered the carbonate
is a disputed question, but there is no
doubt that W. H. Stevens. of Lake
Superio'- miuing fame, a resident of
Detroit, was one of the first, if not the
first, to undertake systematic muining
operations for silver in this camp.
Old Nevada and California miners
offed at the idea of finding any.
thing of value in the carbonates.
They were soft, not hard. They
were 'pancake deposits,' not veins.
The oldest and wisest among them
had never seens any metal extracted
from z.uc-h .auff. Still, Stevens had
his~ adherent,s too. Numbers of men
swarmed upon the hills and began to
sink shafts. They were speedily re
warded. Of the results which fol
lowed ; the fabulou6 fortunes that
have been made and the vast interests
that have been developed, I shall have
to tell you in an another letter.

OLD FIRE HORSES.
The Ruling Pasion Strong Even in Old Age.
From Peck's Sun.
'The runaway on Chestnut
street Sunday morning was a
queer affair, and wasn't a runaway
either. It will be remembered
that a number of old horses that
had been nsed by the fire depart
ment were s9>ld at - auction last
week. One of them, a sleepy old
fellow, was sold and traded around
until he got into the hands of a
man who peddled milk. The
old horse thought he had struck
something that just suited him in
his old age, and he trotted along
with the milk wagon as handily as
possible, and the .German peddler
who did not know anything of the
former employment of the fire
horse, smoked his pipe in peace, !
and emptied his milk in pitchersi
as though there was no care on his
mind. Sunday morning.the Ger.
man was delivering some alleged
milk into a girl's tin receptacle on
Chestnut street, when the fire bell
struck 317. The old hosre sim
ply raised his fore feet in the air
and miade a jump before the old
man could pull up on the reins,
when the beast was stopped. We
presume there never was a more
astonished German in the world
than this one milk man- was, cov
ered with spilled milk, and looking
over his shoulder at his customer
he found that he had emptied a
quart of milk on her neck, and it
was seeking its level, while she
was looking at a broken pitcher
on the sidewalk, and swearing at
the milkman in English that was
nearly as badly broken as the
pitcher. By the time the peddler
got his. horse quieted the fire en-.
gine and hook and ladder truck and I
hose cart came across the bridge,the
alarm ringing and the crowd yell- t
ing, and then it was that the old
horse hitched to the milk wagon 1
began to smell woollen burning.
He started on a run, the milk
wagon rattling and the German
trying to hold the horse with one
hand while he kept six milk cans
right side up with the other hand
and both legs. Going over the
first crossing a milk can jumped
into the air and came down bottom
side up into the German's lap. He
fairly floated in milk, while he
yelled: 'Whoa dui for "Mmma
shimmel,' or something of that
nature. The milk wagon kept
ahead of the engine, and at every
stroke of the bell the old horse
gave an extra jump, until he had
arrived at the store from which
the sm->ke proceeded, when he
turned the milk wagon up to a
hydrant on the corner and stopped
so quick that the driver went over
the dash board with a milk can
pounding him in the ear. The rest
of the fire apparatus stopped at
convenient points, and the old
horse looked over his shoulder
as much as to say to t.he
other fire horses: 'You thought
old Tom was played out, but I no
tice his flag is still there, and he
can teach you gr'een colts a thing or
two about a fire department.' The
old German got out and wiped the*
milk out of his neck, set the cans
right side up, kicked the horse in
the stomach, and as a saloon keeper
looked at the hydrant and asked
the old man if he was going to
water his milk, the peddler got-into
his wagon and drove off to find the
girl with the milk in her hair and
said : 'Well, I tink dot old horse
vas a crank. He yoost act like
crazy yen a red-headed girl comes
out mit a bitcher for milk.'

A LADY'S TOAST TO THE MEN.
-At a literary meeting Mrs
Duniway 'toasted' tee men as
Pollows:
God bless 'em. We halve their
joys, double their sorrows, treble
Lbeir expenses, quadruple their
-ares, excite their affections, con
trol their property and out
maneuver' them in everything.
Thi would 'le a dreary world
without men. In fact, I may say,
without 'em it would not be much
of a world any how. Wo love 'em,
nd the precious tellows don't
know it. As husbands, they are
lways convenient, though not
Jhways on hand. As beaux they
re by no means matchless. They
re most agreeable visitors; they
re handy at state fairs and indis.
)ensable 'at oyster.saloons. They
re splendid escorts for some other
ellow's wife or sister, and as
rieods they are better than wo.
nen. As our fathers they are in
;xpressibly grand. A man may

alled musical taste, and to.be
