The last beams of dayv were faintly
streaming. through the painted windows
above me; the lower parts of the abbey
are wrapped in the obscurity of twiligh.
The chapels and aisles grbw darker and
darker. The effigies of the kings faded
into shadows - the sarble figures of the
monuments assumed strange shapes in
the uncertain light; the eveel breese
crept through the aisles like e oold
breath of the grave; and' even the dis
tant footfall of a verger, traversing the
Poet's Corner, had something strange
and dreary in its sound. I slowly re
traced my morning's walk and as I
passed out at the postals of the cloisters,
the door, closing with a jarring noise be
hind me, filled the whole building with
echoes. I endeavored to form some ar
rangement in my mind of the objects I
had been contemplating, but found they
were already fallen into indistinctness a
and confusion. Names, inscriptions
trophios had all become confounded in I
my rocolloction, though I had scarcely
tak n my foot from off the threshold.
What, thought I, is this vast assemblage
of sepulchres but a treasury of humilia
tion; a hugp pile of reiterated homilies
on the emptiness of renown and the cer
ttinity of oblivion I * * * Time is
ever silently turning over his pages ; we
are too much engrossed by the story of
the present to think of the characters
and anecdotes that give interest to the
past; and each age is a volume thrown
aside tobe speedily forgotten. The idol
of to-day pushes the hero of yesterday
out of our recollection ; and will, in
turn, be supplanted by his successor of
to-morrow. What is the security of a
tomb, or the perpetuity of an ambalm
mont? The remains of Alexander the
Great have boon scattered to the wind
and his empty sarcophagus is now the
mere curiosity of the muesum. " The
Egyptian mummies, which Cambyses
or time hath spared, avarico now
oonsumeth ; Mezraim cures wounds and
Pharaoh is sold for balsams." *hat
then is to insure this pile which now
towers above me from sharing the fate
of mightier mausoleums? The time
must come when its gilded vaults, which
now spring so loftily, shall lie in rubbish
beneath the feet; when, instead of the
sound of melody and praise, the wind
shall whistle through the broken arches
and the owl hoot from the shattere
tower; when the gairish sunbeam shall
break into these gloomy mansions of
dO.h, and the ivy twine around the fal
len column, and the folove hang its
blossoms about the nameleas urn, as if in
mockery of the dead. Thus man passes
rway ; his names perishes from record
and recollection; his history is as a tale
that is told and his very monument be
comes a ruin.- Washinaton IrvinA
Prof essor Hannay's imitation dia
monds are only one of the many kinds.
I speak of them because they are proba
bly of the highest gradoe, but there are
other artificial stones sufficiently limpid ,
and beautiful to puzzle the connoisseur.
It was once the popular impression that
the " gentry "-n the good, old--fash
ioned acceptance of the term--would
deign to wear nothing but gems of the
purest water, leaving paste, glass and ~
the like to their imitators ; but it was
this very creed that first tempted Mad
ame Grand Dame to say, " I can very
well afford to wear artificial stones ; no
ono would dare attach Bsspioou to jew
els." Instances are common where la
dies of family, often for the ltiuidation
of some private debt, have sold their
sets of real diamonds and worn for
years their counterpart in inmtation g
while owners of very rich " parures,
especially actresses, and other peopleaco
customed to travel, are in the habit of
storing them away in some place of
keeping, and having made for oommon
use a similar set in paste ; and jewelers
state that it is nothing extraordiniary for
them to alter diamond ornaments into (
the prevailing fashion by mixing them
plentifully with imitation stone. In the
Middle Ages thero was a law against
putting falso stones in real settings orr
real stones in false settings.-Progress.
A Beautiful Voiee.
Madam de Stael would have gladly 4
parted with some of her wit if she could
only have been beautiful. It would not
be strange if the equally famous " George
Eliot " felt the same hopeless huner
for beauty (for she was a remarkbl
homely woman). We see how sweet i
ws to her to be praised for a grace that
* is akin to beauty.
1This little, story about George Eliot is
told b~y a Mam a lady, who met the
novelist at a hotel in Switzerland, just
after " Bomola " appeared. One day
Mrs. Lewes was reading aloud in French
to a little girl in the garden, and the
American drew near to listen to the
musical tones. Presently Mrs. Lewes
glanced at the intruder and said :
" Do you understand ?"
" I do not care for the matter," an.
swered the American ; " I only oa'me to
listen to your sweet voice."
" Do you like it ?" said Mrs. Lewess
with some surprise.
The American warmly expressed her
admiration, and George Eliot's face
lighted withi pleasure as she 'took her
