The Summer is Over.

Foftly Autumn tviud* were niching (
Oter pale. sweet Howciuls dying,
Ah I roamed the garden trying
There t<> find one lingering rose.

Under fiidetl leaflets peeping.
Here and there, still vulniv keephig

Disappointment then stole o'er nte; I

Had 1 only prized the rosea,

Like veiWd beauties by. concealing 1
Half the charms, whose full revealing l
Might have left this heart aglow? (
Might have left fond moni'ries beuuiitig
On the spirit's after-dreaming;
Tender beacons, softly gleaming
Where Life's darken'*! wavelets flow.
List, ye maids now dancing lightly.
List, ye mouths so gay and sprightly,
I'so your summer moments rightly, 1
Gather roses while ye may. I
Life hath but mm .limn
Quickly comes ith chill November,

.Sweeping oil fair dowers away.
Think bow sad. when summer closes,
And profit Nature's heart reposes,
This fond searching after roses,
When the roses all are dead!
Wisely, (ben. while Spring smiles o'er ye,
I'luek the (lowers that bloom before ye?
l-'lowers whose sweetness shall restore yo

How Capt- John Duncan Got That Dent I
in his Head.
Von want to know how Capt. John Dun- j
can irot thiit dent in liis head ; very well,
J'11 tell you all I know about it.
I met him at Buonos Ay res, South
America, it? the year 1855?not long ago,
you see ; he was in command of a tidy ,
little Scotch brig, called the " Sandy."-?
Now, John was an old trader at the port,
and well posted up in the various means of
amusement, the greatest of which was
horseback ridim?. I inn hv ?i<? mnnnu
indifferent horseman?I rather pride myself
on my skill. So Jolm rind I were to
ho soon nearly every day galloping oil' towards
the open country. He also prided
himself considerably on his horsemanship,
and an innocent way lie had of showing it;
for whenever he met a </aurho, he would
nit bolt upright in his saddle, as if he had !
been suddenly attacked with stiff back.?
Hut when he chanced to pa: .s a fair seignovita,
it was really refreshing to see him.?
Then be would twist his hat jauntily on
one side, twirl his huge mustachios, and by
dexterously ' cininjj in on the curb bit. mul
pricking slightly with tho spurred heel,
flic animal on which lie rode would curvet- I
in most royal style ; nnd then to see his
inciting dances?but I forget! what you
want to know is how Quptain John Duncan
got that dent. Well, I'll tell you. Of'I
course, you understand by this time that i
lie had a dent ! Now, I'll tell you where
the dent was. It was in his head, on the
right or left temple?1 don't distinctly remember
which, hut luckily it's a point of
Tho reason I saw the dent at all, was, I
suppose, that it was impossible to look at
liis face, without seeing it. My curiosity j
was early excited to know how he came by j
such a stranire misfortune, and I made up ;
my mind to find it out, sooner or later, bv '
hook or crook. How to do it, was i.he next
thing; but hero circumstance l'avorod what
philosophy could not devise.
The dent was of a very curious look?
how to describe it, I don't know. Sometimes
it lookud ns if some one had shot ft
pea at him, out of a patent pop-gun, and
liad thus driven flesh and all right into his
right or left temple, I forget which. It
looked as though some one had punched
his head. Hut?I keep forgetting ; what
j'ou want to hear about is, how Capt. John j
Duncan got that dentin his head.
You must bear in iniml flmf tl.Iu I
> v"' *yu" j
<1 c 111 was a source of earnest speculation
to ino ; liiat L was forever, that in, it was
never?in short it puzzled inc. Of course
I was delighted when the mystery was at
last solved. The way it came about was
Komechinp; like this: Captain John Duncan
said trine, says he, " .Mr. Jones'1?lie
always called rnc by uncommon and startling
names?" arc you dry?" Now, as it
hadn't been raining and as T hadn't wet
myself in any way, I said, " Captain John
Duncan, lam dry." In a few more minutes
wo were quietly seated at a littlo table,
in a quiet saloon, doing our very host to
quench our thirst and moisten our throats.
u nc more we drank, tlie thirstier we pot; '
nt Inst lie turned to me, atul says he, " Mr.
Says I, "What?"
Hays lie, " I'm very dry," and immediately
ho commenced to drink again.
What with wit and wine, an hour was
not long rn pawing. At the end of an '
hour my eyes wore aft good aaall tho other |
HonsCH, nrixed up in a meal bag and shook j
together ; if they wero not, why then they j
ir.UHt have deceived mo. At any rate, 1 I
happened to look at Captain John IHtnean, J
after 1 had taken a good many tumblers of i

Qtoofliod my hcnd with my two hands and
brought my oyen to hoar upon hid right, or

to perform an abstruse mathamatipal calculation
; hut twutand turn it as 1 would,
j couldn't deduct seven from six to save
myself j and what's more, I h?vo never
found any calculous deep enough to do it
While T wag twisting and turning it,
(not my head, you know, the calculation,)
Captain John Duncan caught sight of my

fi.'ivs ho, " 1 >oyou see th.it dent, Mr. an
Jones 7" and ho put his finger to bin right ell

that's a point of suiull couscquenco. I ?
Say* I. "I do." ! fri
Says lie, " L>o you know how I got that ; m

Says 1, t! I ijoii't." ; A
Says he, " Will you promise mo never sp
to reveal it if 1 toll you 7 Confidence, Mr. hi
Jones ; coufidoiiee, you know." | he
" I am all ears and u!l right, Captain wl
John Duncan," says 1. And then he just
told me how he got that dent in his head.
" When I was in Marseilles, Franco, in ?v
L'hnrge of one of the finest clippers ever
built in Scotland, I spent the major pirt of ta
my time and money ashore. As 1 had j
considerable time, and plenty of money to i tr<
help it along, I was never at a loss for a un
friend. Why, bless your cood heart. 1 i u|
was sometimes annoyed, for thoy wore as
thick as Highlanders at a prayer-meeting. u<;
I couldn't go a block without one of my '< wi
friends inviting nie to tako wine. They j it"
were liberal-hearted fellows, fonder of ta- ] wi
king a drink than paying for it. The af- J
foot ion thoy displayed for nie would have j li<
drawn tears from my eyes, had it not I to
drawn so much gold from my pocket.? I a
One of the most generous-hearted follows ! hi
of the whole lot, borrowed a thousand i *]

indignant and cut my acquaintance. I do- |T

dod my thousand francs ; and, in return, ;
had the pleasure of receiving a gentleman, i hi
who assured me, in the plcasantcst way j rt:
possible, that nothing but my death could j to
heal the wound which his friend's honor j hi
had sustained. This exasperated me, and i'l
I told the gentleman that were his friend, '?
now 1113' enemy, present I should have the 01
pleasure of kicking his honor. He replied
that he was sorry that I should feel nf
at all annoyed, for he desired the little af- h
fair to be mutually agreeable ; that, per- tl
sonally, he esteemed me, particularly since
he had now the pleasure of makinsr inv no- i tl
fjuaintance. This so flattered me that I immediately
called for a bottle of champagne, : tl
of which lie drank the major part; which, ; tl
considering that he held that rank in the , hi
army, was very proper. The duel was im- .hi
mediately arranged. j m
" In the preliminaries it was agreed that ">
a champagne breakfast should be ordered tl
out (if town, at the place of meeting ; and : ai
that (ho man who was killed should pay for I
it. Of course breakfast was reserved till 1 fe
after the duel. C
" We met ! Wo measured out the paces! tv
We fired ! And the next I know I found to
myself in bed with tl is ugly dent in my tl
head, an enormous bill to pay for a break- t?i
rasi oi which i nuu never lasieu a morsel, l id
And tlint's the way 1 irot Hint dent." j tH
I f.t looking at Captain .John l)uncan r<
for some time after lie had finished his
yarn without saving a word, linw much hi
longer 1 might lnivo said not'ling I don't V
know, hut he snd Jenly interrupted me by J
saying, "Mr. Jones! 3Ir. Jones!" Ii
Pays T, " What." * fu
Hays he, " Don't you fee] dry?" w
Says I, " I do feel kind of parched in pi
my throat, Captain." it
And so we called for more toddy, and 1 W
really don't know whether we had more "
pleasure or toddy. Homo how or other, hi
with every glass wo turned down, our
thoughts seemed fairly kicking to turn out. "
At Inst t'nptain .John Duncan could hold w
in 110 lonjjor, and interrupting nic in the ni
midst of a laugh which 1 was enjoying all s;i
by myself. Says ho, " Mr. .Jones!'' ?i
At first I didn't say anything, and thon d;
afterwards I didn't say anything; hut ci
putting my right hand to the right side of hi
my head and my loft hand to the left side tl
of my head, and kept on saying nothing, tn
However, in the midst of it ho again in- it
torruptod lue. Says ho, Mr. Jones !" it
Says I, " What ?"
Says ho, 41 Hid you ever noticc that dent
i n my teniple ?" jti
Somehow or other his memory scorned
to have grown wonderfully short. So fo
when he asked me that question. I just ta
looked at him?I mean at one of him, for si
there wore three or four of him, and six
or seven donts for each. ta
Says T, "Captain, pray tell me how it
was you got that dent in your head?"? tr
And then lie told mc how it was. ?i
Says he?but before lie commenced ho fo
took another toddy?says he, " You see, I en
was travelling in Spain, and being much I ,)f
pleased with the aneici t city of Seville, at
determined to abandon the sea and set up b;
my carriage, marry a rich heiress and set- tli
tie down. vi
" The scignorita?but I cannot mention w;
her name?honor, yoti know, Mr. Jones, w
hotior, sir, honor,!" and ho flapped at his wi
breast, but missing it., knocked his tutu- nj
bier on the floor, breaking it in pieces. It en
cost him, including the ii jtior, 18 ceuts. ! nr

over tiino 1 thought of her. I found tli
out the phyMtoinn by whom )ier family was t!i
attended, and found out at the same time n<
that lie wag principally addicted to rum M
and money. Accordingly I kept him in w
a pleasant state of intoxication as well as
in loose ohango. To prove how thorough- t?

to slap his broiiH*, but, as before, he missed In

thnt every drop of it ran down his throat, fu

ir wants mid to tho genuineness of the
oney with which we paid him, kindly fillI
our glasses without waiting to bo asked,
id as kindly took the requisite amount of

aeed on the tablo, Captain John Duncan
-and ho was as polite a man as ever rciincd
from the gambler's profession?
itdc a low bow. So low did he bow that
s head rested on the table and ho slept,
ftrr waiting some time I ventured to
cak to him?still ho slept. I shouted to
m?still lie slept. I shook him?still
i slept. As a last resort I imbibed his
liskey?he awoke with a start.
" Captain John Duncan !" says I.
" Yes," says he.
" I want to hear the rest of your yarn,"
So, having twirled the ends of his muschios,
he held forth as follows :
" Well, as T before said, the Doctor inxluced
me to the seignorita, and I got
re and more in love, every time I called
)on her. Slio was very rich. Such eyes !
leh hair ! Such shoulders ? Such h-i-ccfh

is there. I heard, afterwards, that lie
id tlio same of 1110. Thero was also a
tie Italian Count who called occasionally,
o seldom, however, for me to fear him as
rival. One d ry I met him, I mean the
g Spaniard, and as lie passed me, his

jnor was injured, and that unless he could
lolosi/.o for striking my corn , nothing hut
duel could appease my anger. He refus1
to apologize, and accordingly we fought.
41 Thurst, parry, lunge.! The (irbt I knew
'tcr the duel, was finding myself in bed,
sentinel pacing in front of the door, and
lis infernal dent in my head."
" Is that a fact?" said I. " is that really
ic way in which you got that dent?"

of the indignity of his coin?1
?an honor, had suffered. It was but a
omont, however, that his eyes so sparkled,
icy then assumed their common lustre,
id more whiskey was called for.
And there we sat, drinking toddy, and
elinj; as snu^ as a lrog in ;i puddle.?
iiptain John had two n ips, an 1 onco or
rice time went by without my beiii;; able
i account for it. Two hours pissed in

r'liat you want to hoar is, how Captain
uiin iMincangot that limit in his head.?
i the lirst place, yon must know, as I bore
said, that ho had a dent, and that it
as situated on the right or the left teme;
1 don't remember which, but luckily
is n point of no great importance.?
"ell, I said to Captain ?)uhn Duncan,
Oaptaiu Duncun,you promised to tell me
jw you got that dent in your head."
" So I will, so I?hi ce ugh," said ho.
In the first place, you must know, (hat I

" Ti'll me the history." I orderly cried.
" Yes," replied Captain John, " that'*
ist what I'm goinj; to do.
" .My early reading, especially niy luve
r his'i-try and the Arabian Nij/lits Kutoriu
incuts, early impressed nlV with a dore
to view the in igniGoeneeof the Indies."
" Do you mean the Wc-st Indies, Capin
?" I asked, interrupting him.
Tho Captain twirled liis inustachios, coni-^icd
his eyebrows, and answered, "No,
r, I do not mean the West Indies; 1 rer,
sir, to the Kast Indies." He then
mtiuued : " In accordance with my love
glory, I took the shipping to the Kast,
id landed at tho prineipal port of Bom

before the impetuous charge of the
iciny; tho King spurred bis horse, unil
hen he had readied my side, lie implored
c to make some desperato mamcuvrc t?)

" Your Majesty," I replied, u is aware

" Spurring my horso, T called lustily foi

j The battle was gained, and gradually I rci
covered from my wound. And that's the
way I got that dent in my head."
Just as he h: d tinished, we were joined
by a nu'iiber of friends, 1 often look back
through the cyehtdes of memory, and live
over again those rollicking days which I
passed iii Hucnos Ay res. There wan Capt.

was said to have formerly been a pirate,

etc. Well now, I'll tell you what?
I'm just about as curious to know as you
are; and if over L meet him again, I moan
to ask him, sometime when he is perfectly
sober, how it was that he got that dent in
his head. And that's all I know about it.
