Itt t'a? Buring.
HftDPv footsteps, to" and fro,
Through the fresh green copnie spring
Happy laughters, whispers low, -
Carmina with the streamlet's sinjina.
Twittering birds and voices clear,
Bud di np violets, brightening eye?;
Spring of life and spring of year.
Blending under April skies.
Branches arching overhead,
; BravMn spring-tide's bright array,
Glittering Hooks of sunlight shed, .
Like strewn jewels on tho way;
Primrose, virginal and puro,
Gallant crocus, bright and bold;
Bed anemone, secure
In bis mosses' clinging hold.
Blue forget-me-not, that gazes
On her own eves iu tho nvor;
Great convolvulus, that raises
. Blossoms where the wolowa quiver.
AU these gems of Naturo lay
Scattered broadcast on your road;
Youths; and maidens, while you may,
Take the boons by spring bestowed.
Never summer's lavish glory,
Never autumn's tender sadness,
Breathes the spring-time's wooing story,
Gives the sphng-limo's fearless gladuesa.
Blight amid the fruits will creep,
Thorns amid the rose* sting:
Fresh to gather, sweet to keep.
Are the buds that bloom in spring.
Your First Sweetheart.
Yon caji never forget her. She
was so very young and innocent and
pretty. She had such a way of look?
ing at you over her hymn-book in
church. She alono, of all tho world,
did not think you a boy at*eighteen,
but wondered at your size, and your
learning, and your faint foreshadow?
ing of a sandy moustache, aud be?
lieved you every inch a man. When
at those stupid evening parties,
where boys who should have been
in the nursery, and girls who should '
have eaten suppers of bread and
milk, and gone to sleep hours before,
waltzed and flirted, and made them?
selves ill over oysters and champagne,
yon were favored by a glauce of her
eye or a whisper from her lip, you
ascended to the seventh heaven im?
mediately. When once upon a cer?
tain memorable eve, she polkaed with
the druggist's clerk, and never look?
ed at you, how miserable you were.
It is funny to think of it now, but it
.waa not funny then, for you were
awfully in earnest.
Once at a pio-nio she wore a white
dress, and had roses twined in her
black hair; and she looked so like.a?
bride that you fairly trembled. Soma
time you thought, in just such snowy
costume, with just such blossoms in
her hair, she might stand beside the
altar, and yon, most blessed of all
mortals, might placo a golden ring
upon her finger; and when you were
left alone with her for a moment,
somo of your thoughts would form
themselves into words, and though
she blushed and ran away, and would
not let you kiss her, she did not
seem eugry. And then you were
parted, somehow, for a little while,
and when you mot again, she was
t walking with a gentleman-a large,
well-whiskered man of twenty-eight
or thirty, and had neithor word or
smile for you. And some well-mean?
ing gossip informed von shortly after
that she was engaged to tho tall ;
gentleman with black whiskers, and
that it was a "splendid match."
It was terrible news to you thou,
and sent you off to some great city,
far from your native place, where,
after a great deal of youthful grief,
and many resolutions to die and
haunt her, you recovered your
equanimity and began to make
money, to call love stuff and non
sense. You have a rich wife of your ;
own now, and grown-up children- !
aye, even two or thron todding
grand-children about your hearth;1
your hair is grey, and you lock your
heart up in tho lire-proof safe of
?onr counting-house when you go
ome at night. And you thought
that you had forgotten tho little
episode of your nineteenth year,
until tho other day, when you read
of her death in the papers. You
know she was a stout lady, who wore
glasses, and had daughter older
than she was in that eldon time; but
your heart went back, and you saw
her smiling and blushing, with her
golden hair about her face, and your?
self n. i>r>w ownii^ drowning of ~cd
ding robes und rings, and you laid
your grey old head on your office
desk and wept for the memory of
your first sweetheart.

A lady who started out of sleep by

cried out: "Who is there?" "Your
