The sentleman on the piazza smiled

away; he did not like to be a listener how
ever involuntarily, for ke was a gentle
man, lie did not altogether escape mat

He carried with him a vivid picture or a

face; the abundant brown hair, shot with
red raps, like a ripe chestnut skin. He

The idea of obedience was as distasteful to
her as a bit and bridle to a wild horse.
Her outbreak this morning was excited

Grace Hamilton's a giil of her own age
who had come with them to Addis, partly
because Dora had coaxed her. partly be
came it was cheap; and Grace was not too
rich. . .-, .
The subiect of their discourse had been
the sufferings, publiclx paraded, of a cer
tain little lady known to this party who
had been very and, indeed hsurdly
extravafr&nt, and brought herbnsuaBd to
the brink of failure; so near that she had
been compelled to accept a sudden and se
vere retrenchment. Grace's aunt, who was
also staying at the Saltash house, hd
blamed Mrs. wake severely, ana ioruau
not objected till Grace affirmed that she
did not at all sympathize with Mrs. Blake,
as her nusoana r.na ueen very open wiiu
her in regard to his business all airs, and
had Ions since told her sho must give up
certain habits of lavish expense, or expect
him to fail a fact which - the natural
levity and folly of the woman s nature led
her to treat as threat; and so the end
"And I'm not sorry for her; she ought
to have minded him!" Grace said. A
woman's natural duty is obedience ; she
ought to have known that it is our destiny
to yield to our superiors," whined Miss
Hamilton ; and this, which ' seemed to
Dora suoerlative cant, had brought out
her sharp exclamation. She herself was
utterly undisciplined ; a blind indulgence
had set her adnft in life without an idea
of duty, and . she had yet to learn any law
but her own will, or any restraint but her
own caprices. Poor child! life is the
sternest or teachers, even with all the prep
aration that can . be made for its encoun
ter, and a merciless pedagogue to the will
ful and ignorant. Mr. Horton was be
witched with Dora against his judgment;
her fresh, piquant grace, her beauty, her
very insurgent way of action and speech,
captivated him; he knew with painful
clearness that she was as unfit for a minis
ter' wife as a woman could be, but he
knew also that without her his life would
loose its savor, and become routine of the
dullest order, perhaps misery, though con
science - warned him not to be so weak
as this, while his work remained yet to be
The next day there was to be that resort
ot country board era in lack wf all other
amusement, a picnic to Glen. Falls, a wild
ravine in the heart of ihi hills through
which a rapid brook tore its way, plunging
from one precipice to another, at no one
spot to be seen in full beauty, but reserving
its coy surprises lor tnose wno naa bkiu
and strenirUi to climb upward to its source
a clear mountain pond that slept amid
dark woods, fed by hidden springs. The
dav was warm, yet fresh with tue won
derful freshness of mountain air; and when
the long wagon ofSaltash house arrived at
the foot of the ravine, all the younger
members of the party were unanimous in
their resolve to climb to clear pond, while
the older ladies, and one white-haired
bachelor who cared little for scenery and
much for his ease, remained quietly on a
broad rock by the lower pool, where thick
pine boughs sheltered them from the sun.
and the cool odor of dripping water
sjemed to disperse whatever heat the July
weather threatened. Two couples bad
already gone upward, when Dora and
Grace, attended by Mr. Horton aad Ned
Schenck, a cousin of Dora's, began the
climb. Both gentleman had been suf
ficiently accustomed to forest paths to
make the matter easy as far as they were
concerned, but to feet used only to the pave
of the city or the smooth turf of the croquet
ground, this rough yet slippery ascent
looked fearful enough; nor were delicate
kid boots the best preparation for sharp
rocks and moss strewn with pine needles.
It seemed all but impossible for Dora to
attempt such a task, but her pride forbade
retreat, while Grace in despair suffered her
self to be half carried up the steppest
fdtches by Ned . Schenck, and
ifted bodily over : stones '.and
logs that ahe declared heraelt altogether
unable to surmount. . Fortunately for her
protector, she was slight, and not tall ;' ke
could easily spare all the strength neces
sary. But Dora would not allow herself
to be more than guided, though her guid
ance was peremptory.
"Put your foot here Miss Schenck ; now
the other on that stone. - Give me your
left hand and take firm hold of that bough
to your right.' .-.
Dora obeyed with the most child-like
confidence, for the abyss below her and the
height above were alike terrible; but she
bad the best of courage which will not
turn back, though trembling with ter
ror. Grace, from below, a 'helpless . burden,
saw with a sort of pique how well Dora
endured the march, and caught Mr. Hor
tou's admiring glances at the little figure
that was at once so brave and so docile.
To tell the truth, Grace had intended the
the handsome young clergyman should be
her own escort, and was not at all satisfied
at being relegated to Ned Schenck's care,
who was strong and good-tempered, no
doubt, but neither good-looking nor rich.
It was not from pure desire to tease, that
Grace called out, in her soft,- drawling
tones: "Doll, you are really a miracle.
I never expected to see you mind a man
Dora was indignant. She knew very
well that Grace could be spiteful; but ths
spite did not hurt her as muck as the an
swering consciousness that, in spite of her
fine theories, she had been most implicitly
submissive to Mr. Horton's escort. The
girlish silly pride that was her great fault
rose in arms; she did not answer Grace,
bnt with a resolute look on her flushed
face. Brrranff onward after her own fashion,
tnmblinir and clincrine as well as she
could, everv moment expecting Mr. Hor
ton to advise or remonstrate, then went on
heeding his voice no more. .
She expected in vain. He said nothing,
and the smile on nis lace wouiu not nave

Grace had stopped far below; she was
healed and tired, and anzrv too. .Ned
Schenck did not mind her petulance, for he
did not care for her ; so he sat aown on tne
other end of tho-log where she had seated
herself,, and profaned the delicate forest
odors with a cigar. Dora stopped a mo

aad sprinkled with bngbt dew tne luxur
iant ferns and vines that frintred the banks
on either side. Then she turned to .follow
the very slight indication of a path up
ward. Mr. Horton was ready to follow;
but the moment she set her foot on the
rock which was her first step, and extended
her hand to grasp a ledge above, which
must be climbed, he cried out, in a loud.
imperative voice, "Dora, stop !"
, ine voice was so uecisins w wwcrmi.
so full or that command wntcn is tne
counterpart of obedience, that without" a
thought of rebellion Dora stooa line a
statue. In an instant Mr. Horton put his
arm about her. swung her back, and began
to strike rapidly ind fiercely at something
on the crest ot the ledge ; and In another
minute he lifted a dead rattlesnake on his
cane and nung It far into tne stream.
Dora turned sick, and sat down on a stone,"
shuddering and pale. Mr.J Horton; said
"Excuse nic- Miss Schenok i the" danger
was too near for me to bo less imperatve."
Dora shivered. "If you had not. 1
should bo dead now."
"Not at all" laughed Mr. Horton. "I
know these woods too well to be ever with
out the proper alleviations for a snake
bite, but I never yet used them, though I
have met and killed a good many. Rattle
snakes are dull creatures unless they coil
and soring, and one blow with a heavy
stick will kill them. Very tew people die
of their bites. I have only heard of one
case in these regions, and that was a child
that had strayed alone into the woods."
He purposely lightened his explanation,
that Dora might calm herself; be did not
know it was still throbbing through her
heart that he had called her "Dora." Her
natively generous instinct demanded some
thanks to be paid but she could not speak
yet; she was shyly glad, yet angry with
herself tor being glad ; and trembling so
with the sudden nervous .shock, she could
not for some miaui.es speak again.
Mr. Horton R topped down to the water's
edge, and seemed absorbed in looking at
tne tall, out nis ncart ocat aa wiiuiy as
hers: in that moment of danger he nad
discovered what deep hold Dora had taken
of his lile; he did not think of her unfit
ness to be his wite, or tier scorn, her wild
impulses, her quick temper. Like many
another maa in his case, he thought only
for her beauty and sweetness, and felt that
she must love him, or he would be miser
ablet Blessed ordination of things! If
man or woman chow their mates as they
do their shoes or their books, with deliber
ation and cool judgment this dear, delight
ful, naughty old world would come to a
sudden end ; it is the wisdom of Provi
dence that they never do.
It seemed an hour to both of these as ton-.
ished people; yet it was barely five min
utes, before Dora looked up at Mr. Horton
and said: "I don't know how to thank
you. I can acknowledge now it is good
to mind a man sometimes. There was a
soft arch look in the beautiful dark eyes
that contradicted the quivering lips; but
the lovely blushing face told what Dora
never meant to tell. Mr. Horton knelt
down on the grass beside her. ....
"Oh, Dora, I would not be a tyrant," be
said ; and Dora dropped her head so low
it rested on his shoulder.
Mrs. Horton always declared that her
husband never asked her to marry him,
which he indignantly denied as often as
she asserted it; but however the union

said so that no gentler, sweeter, happier
minister's wife ever filled the difficult po
sition in the city of Ludlow, where Mr.
Horton was settled ; even Grace Ham.
ilton could not find fault with this match,
though adie had predicted all sorts
of sorrows from its "radical unfit;
ness." But time had not softened Grace's
native spite, though she controlled .it dur
ing her brief visit at the parsonage. On
the next Christmas morning a package
came by express, directed to Mr. Horton ;
on the inner cover of the thin box was
written, "For Doll's room and as the

One of the most terrible instances of a
scoffer struck down in the moment of
his blasphemy was revealed before Mr.

five years, lie returned home at a quarter
past five o'clock on Thursday evening,
and asked his daughter-in-law to get him
an egg from the fowl-house. On pro
ceeding into the yard he became excited,
and, after using a frightful oath in refer
ence to his - death, he ran into the parlor,
vomited blood, and fell dead in the arms
of a female who had been nursing his
daughter. Mrs. Fall stated thatdecesed
did net say "God strike me dead," but be
used words of a similar character. The
jury found a verdict ol "Death from ex

enabled him to narrate a parallel case.
A number of persons had assembled iq a
tavern at Putney, when a man charged
another with taking from him two-pence.
The man, after being accused, said, "May
God strike me dead if I did it" and be

HOW BRUISERS TEAOT.
Tho Preparation Weeeooary to era-
On the principal drive which is the
most frequented by turfmen between
Coney Island and Prospect Park, Brook
lyn, stands a quaint and popular nosticry
kept by Peter Ravensall, a noted sport.
It is at this famous old road-side inn,
well known to all lovers of fast trotters,
that Brooklyn's famous pugilist and poli
tician, Johnny Dwyer, is in training for
his coming great prize-Ogat witu Jemmy

A reporter of a New York paper recent
ly visited Dwyer and his trainer. Ar.
riving at the hotel he found that although
the rain was pouring down in torrents,
Dwyer and Aaron were on a "sweating
"W hero is the champion?" asked the
reporter of young fete ltavensall
"Dwyer and Aaron have gone off to
walk to Coney Island and back for
sweat. Here they come new," said the
young host, and up tho muddy road at a
nve-miie pace, through tne pouring rain
came the pugilist.
. He was muffled up in heavy flannels.
and bis race was covered with a thick
flannel hood. He came into the hotel
followed by Barney Bennett and Barney
Aaron. . . t
, -'Hard at work, John rr said the re
porter. r v.i .-. -,
"Yes." replied the good-natured pugilist.
"i win see you in a lew minutes."
Dwyer went into a room and stripped
off the heavy flannels, reeking with rain
and perspiration. Barney Aaron and his
assistant then went to w or lo rubbing nim
down with tough towels and sponges, as
tne pugilist lay iixe a reclining Alias at
rest on his couch. After half an hour's
vigorous rubbing, he was bathed with
liniment, and nis lace witn f Tench spirits.
Barney Aaron then laid a rough cloth
over his sunburnt face and covered him
up with blankets, and for fifteen minutes
he rested at' ease,-?enlOying it, no doubt.
Dwyer then rose, and as he stood erect,
he 1 autre muscles bulged out on his legs
like bunches of whip-cord and glided like
serpents beneath the white skin that
covered them. Sueh an athlete is seldom

Dwyer looked all that his trainer said
about him for the fight,
"What date is fixed V asked the repor

weeks to tram Vt, and ru can. believe
me, training is hard work."
" iY cat is your programme tor training r

reporter. . . , ; : :

Barney Aaron. - .

over the floor weie boxing-gloves, dumb
bells, and Indian ciubs, while banging by
a rope from a te:iui was a large swinging
bag of sand. : Dwyer braced- himself in
front of it, and, lirst with the left and then
with the right, he struck it powerful blows,
and each blew had force enough to knock
down an ox. .-.:. ' i ..-. . -
Barney Aaron said, "What do you think
of thai?" and. pointing to the muscles on
the gn at pugilist's arm, be said "There
are no hi? lumps there that' are not mus

Dwvcr continued to pound at the bag for
fifteen minutes, and then again descended
to the sitting-room below. " -:

Dwyer said: "l think at win. lou

time; we have a stakeholder." .
"Who is the stakeholder Barney?" said
'Why, Tom waish, in tne uowery. tie

"lou pet he naa," said Barney Aaron.
At Fort Hamilton, at the hotel formerly
kept by John Leary, better known as lied
Leary, Elliiott is training under the men
torshipof Bob Smith, an English pugilist.
Elliott goes through the same routine as
Dwyer, and since lie ha been at work he
has reduced his weight several pounds.
Elliott is in splendid condition, and is
nearly down to his fighting weight one
hundred and seventy pounds. Dwyer will
enter the ring weighing only one hundred
and sixty-eight pounds, so there will only
be two pounds difference in the pugilists'
How the Istdiaata Made Their Arrow
A young man in the Smithsonian In
stitute, (writes the Washington coi res
pondent of the Cleveland Leader.) has
made public the discovery of the method
employed in making the stone and vol
canic glass arrow-heads, daggers, knives,
axes and razors of the pre-historic races.
Up to this time this has Ix-cn a great
problem to all antiquarian Mudents, but
no theory has ever heen advanced show
ing so practical results ss Cushing's. He
started to solve the difficulty by putting
himself in the identical position of the
Aztecs or Mound Builders without any
thing to work with except sticks, various
shaped stones such as he could find on'
the banks oi any stream, and bis hands.
After making some rude implements by
chipping one flint with another, he dis
covered that the amount of chipping
would produce surfaeca like the best of
those which he was trying to imitate.
He there foie came to tho conclusion that
there was another way of doing it, and,
by chance, tried pressure with the point
of a stick, instead of chipping by blows of
a stone; when, presto ! he found he could
break stone, flint and obsidian in any
shape be chose. Soon be had made spear
heads and daggers that would cut like
razor, aa good as any he had before him.
which had been picked up from all over
the world. By a little more observation
he found that the "flaking," which he
calls his process, on the old arrow-head
left grooves that all turned one way. He
produced a like result by turning his
stick the easiest way from right to left
He therefore concludes that thepre-his-torics
were right-handed people like our
selves, in is conclusion is reinforced by
the fact that occasionally an arrow-head
is found that has flakes running from left
io rigut, snowing a leit-nanaed person
The importance of the discovery is. it
shows that the early xaces were able to

Falao SowHasoiit as t Work for
A false sentiment has rendered it de
rogatory for a woman to be a business
woman, for A girl to earn or appreciate
dollars and cento, if sho can possibly find
rather, brother, or uncle to support her.
The noble army of working women, who
of all women best demonstrate their raiton
d'etre is in general a despised army; and
while society applauds the woman who
is an arust, an euiior, an auwor, it uocs so
bv calling her a genius, and setting her
out of that grand corps where she legit
imately belongs, famines witn three,
four or five daughters, whether there are
sons or not it the. rather can possibly
support them, are' brought up to do
nothing but help mother a little! This
helping is not generally reauy learning
housekeeping and seamstress work in ail
its varieties, hut skimming the surface of
things, making cake, dusting a room,
trimming a gown, and leaving those
weightier matters or the law, as snirv
making. ironing, bread-making and beef-
cooking to some one else. Girls speak oi
as a hardship, n tney are opiigea oy
stress of circumstances io earn a support
'Anna thinks it is so hard : all her mends
have their time to themselves, and she is
forced to teach, poor child 1" The whole
training of the girl is aside from knowing
anything about business; she reads stories
and fashion magazines, not newspapers,
and works on science and architecture,
and practical every-day life. Sho does
not learn telegraphy or carving, or fur
niture decorating, or gardening, or book-
keepingvnor docs she go into her latners
business and learn it as her brother would
if she bad one; bless you.it would make
her a working woman! Thus, out of
this army of working women are kept,
so far as possible, all women of
education, means, refinement, and
cultured taste. - These or. anized
into a society make no end or blunders in
business, and regard them as creditable
rather than otherwise, as a Chinese lady
cherishes the deformity of a cramped foot.
If they read common law and medicine so
as to be as well informed on these points
as ordinary men, bless you, they are Very
odd,' at the least. These good ladies with
the very best intentions undertake to
handle the working-woman question; they
are thrown into c intact with the poor, and
knowing absolutely nothing of what it is
to earn a living, or what it costs to earn a
dollar, or what a dollar can be made to
bring, they have only the most general and
no particular sympathies; on one hand.
they will be deceived and kill by over
kindness, on the other, they will misunder
stand and kill by hardness. It needs
working women to understand and help
working women ; then they know that be
ing bread winners does not forfeit for them
their position as wives and mothers; that
while they earn daily wages they have the
affections of the hearth ; that the poor
mother, left a widow, wants to keep her
children in a home, not- to sow them
broadcast in orphan asylums; that the
poor couple who have passed their mar
ried fifty years, unhonored it ia true by a
golden wedding, do not want to be thrust
one into an Old Men's Home, the other In
to an Old Women's Home, or put in the
sepmate wards of an almshouse, or one go
to one Blind Asylum and the other to an
other. There is a fine kind of charity in
England, where endowments have been
left so that decent destitute old couples, or
single people, can have a nle three-roomed
cottage, with fuel, water and lights,
and a certain number of shillings weekly
on which to subsist; and they can take in
an orphan grandchild, or feeble child,
living as in their own home, subject only
to certain regulations of sobriety, cleanli
ness, and good order. Sunday Afternoon.
Marion G. Collins, of Tennessee, claims
to have discovered a cure for rattlesnake
bites. Drs. Eve and Shacklettof Nash
ville, according to the American, made a
test of the medicine. Collins let a rattle
snake bite him on the wrist and at once
applied to the wound and took inwardly a
decoction of mosses from oak and hickory
trees. He suffered from nausea, and his
pulse and temperature were excited, but
within an hour he had completely recov

a marvellous pistol shot.
Almost any evening may be seen, at the
gaiiery ot James B. uoniin, lca Broad
way, feasts of pistol marksmanship which
would make any of the old-style, off-hand
shooters stand in wonder. The marksman
is Mr. Frank U. Lord, the most expert
ana nnisnea pistoi-snot inline country.
He is a young man of 82, the youngest son
of the late Thomas Lord. He is an athlete
and a gymnast and about 1867 began to
try his skill as a shot at the old Conlin
gallery. The feats of Captain John Tra
vers, now of Cleveland, had become a tra
dition, though when -Sandav Lawrence
kept a ten-pin alley on the site of the sres-
eut Astor House, Travers' gallery attached
to it saw some wonderful exhibitions of
steadiness and skill with small arms. One
of Captain Travers' feats was to shoot
away a silver 3-cent bit placed between
his toes; and when Blondin crossed the
Niagara be allowed Travers to put a ball
through his bat' From a doubting-friend
Captain Travers won a diamond ring by
putting a shot through the ring, and his
teat of picking an orange from his son's
bead was tried again- and again. Since
Captain Travers' time billiards has driven
out ten-pins, and. rifle-shooting at long
distance has crowded pistol-shooting at
twelve paces into'disuse. Mr. Lord, how.
ever, confines his sport almost entirely to
to the smaller weapon, though ho is a fine
shot lie is a member or the new York
Club, and his bachelor chambers are
adorned with a curious- stock of pistols.
In .Paris he met .Iaul de Cassagnac and
others of the French duelling clique and
astonished them by the" certainty ot his
aim. .The f orest and Stream, in an article
enriched with drawings of Mr. Lord's tar
For ten seasons past he has been chosen
by the English-spaking residents of Paris
as' their champion, and a well-chosen rep
resentative naa he proven, un one occa
sion he performed among other feats of
accurate marksmanship, the following; A
cap of an ordinary musket was placed up
on the neck of a champagne bottle, and Mr.
Lord standing at thirty-six feet or twelve
paces, witu an ordinary duelling pistol
picked off the cap without scratching the
glass. The same feat was repeated, but
with the pistol tran f erred from the right
to tne leit nana, i wo more caps were
picked off with right and left hand firing,
respectively, but in these instances the
pistol was held in a reverse position, with
the line of sight below instead of above
the line of fire. The next shot was a fancy
one, Mr. Lord standing with his back to
the object fired at, leaning far forward, aud
then, with pistol printed back between
his legs, picking off the cap as befoie.
The last of the six shots were made sit
ting in a chair, again with back to target
and leaning back until the target could be
seen by tne nead ana eyes Dent pack, it

laid across the openliig of the golden loop
is cut cleanly through, and through, the
watch has been under fire scores and hun
dreds of times, it still ticks on towards the
day which may come when a bullet a
fraction of an inch out of the way, may
scatter the works in a shower of wheels
and pinions. "'

in duelling, when the seconds cry out,

one two three," the shooter being re
quired to shoot between the words "Fire"
and "three." nr. Lord, witn . a dueling
pistol at twelve paces, struck down six
5-inch bullets hungup by threads. Such
aa adversary on the field ol honoi would
satisfy the chivalric yearnings of about
any mortal. At the word "one" Mr. Lord
fired ten consecutive shots into a lj-inch
circle, some distance.
In Paris, where fantastic shooting is
very much in vogue, he is known as -rue
diable American." He has time and again
at fifteen paces put 100 shots consecutively
into a space of an ordinary playing-card.
On a recent date, as showing has ability
for long-range firing with the pistol,' he
struck two caps out of three shots at a
distance of sixty feet As the ordinary
musket cap is about one-eighth oi an
inch across, the mere seeing of the mark '
was somewhat of a feat but to see and hit
as, well was something entirely beyond
the common, Yet it was done at a certain
hour previously agreed upon before a
large number of marksman, including
many members of the- New York and
ZetUer Rifle Cubs. With ' a - Stevens
twelve-inch barrel pistoL distance 125 feet
Mr. Lord picked off a couple of &-inch
bullets, using right and left hand in turn.
Three consecutive J-inch bullets fell at
forty-five feel before shots from a large
sized Smith A Wesson revolver, Russian
model, heavy trigger pull.
Many attempts heve been made to bring
together Mr. Lord and Recorder Hackett,
and the clubmen have ' backed these
famous pistol-shots on several occasions,
but the Judge is somewhat wary. New

Xaut Hood as sai Asaatear Voleaavs,
A hnnt ntna nVlork ' vestcrdav morning
any person observing Mount Hood could
have noticed with naked eye a changing
cloud of smoke that hung upou the south
side of the mountain, far above the snow
line, and climbing almost to the summit
Observing this carefully with a glass, it
was plain to be seen that the smoke changes
its form and movement constantly,
apparently pouring out of the south side
of the mountain, from half to one-quarter
of a mile below the summit. Those who
have ascended the mountain locate the
site of an old crater on the south-west
side, some distance below the summit
They have ta cross this locality to make
the ascent and always find sulphurous
fumes issuing from the crevices and the
rocks heated by internal fires. ' There is
no doubt that Mount Hood at times sends
forth eruptions ot smoke, though such
manifestations arc not of frequent occur
rence, or at least are not often reported.
We have lived within .view of the moun
tain for nearly thirty years, and have only
once before, about fifteen years ago, seen
unmistakable emissions of smoke, which
lasted about an hour, and came from tbe
same part of tbe mountain- that we ob
served it yesterday, and each time the fact
of its being smoke was not to be doubted.

gence that, during the last year, no less
than 3.961 persons have been injured by

of being injured by ordinary vehicles, but
to be wounded by a bicycle was new ex

account compared to what can be' showu
by the drivers of light carts. The enter
prising butcher-boy, according to the Par

this particular accomplishment. The cab
man comes next in order of merit; but it
is the driver of the light cart that has done
the real execution, and his most1 successful
hunting-grounds have been the outlying
suburbs of London. The number of fatal
accidents mounts up to the respectable
number of 106. Of these the city,, claims
only nine, while Stepney heads the list
with twenty-one, and Camberwell, Hatnp
stead, Paddington and Highgate follow in
honorable competition..: there is : no
doubt that ia the city the driver, of the
light cart labors under considerable disad
vantages. The . thoroughfares, are so
crowded that he' has not the means of get-'

The following palate-thrilling encomium
of the strawberry is from essays by John
Burroughs : "Locusts - and Wild Honey"
"On the' threshold of summer, nature
proffers us this, her vrrgin fruit; more
rich and sumptuous are to follow, but the
wild delicacy and fillip of the strawberry
are never repeated that keen feathered
edge greets the tongue in nothing else.
Let me not be afraid of. overpraising it
but probe and probe for words to hint Its
surprising virtues. We may well cele
brate it witn festivals ana music at nas
that indescribable quality of all first things
the shy, uncoying, provoking .barbed
sweetness. . It is eager - and sanguine as
youth. It was born of the copious dews,
tne iragrant mgnis, uie, lenuer sK.ies, wo
plentiful rains of the early season. The
singing of birds is in it, and the health
and frolic of lusty Nature. : It is the pro
duct of liquid May, touched by-the June
sun. It has the tartness, the briskness,
the unrulmess of Spring, and the aroma
and intensity of summer.' Oh. the straw
berry days! how vividly they come - back
to one i -1 ne sm. ii ot ctuvcr in wo imus,
of blooming rye on the hills, of the wild
grapes beside tne wooas, ana oi tne sweet
honeysuckle and soinea about the house.
The first hot, muist days. The daisies and
buttercups, the songs oi the Diras, tneir
first rockless jollity and love-making over;
the full, tender foliage of the tre.s,tbe
bees swarming, and tbe air strung with
resonant musical chords. The time of the
sweetest and most succulent grass, -when
the cows come home with aching udders.
Indeed, the strawberry belongs to tne
