M Father, where Is our Jamie, to-night
.Jamie so bold and gay T
The twilight ahadows are falling bow,
Why does he etay away T
Jamie la bsndaome, and manly too,
And bs will be good and great;
But, father, why is our darling boy
A -staying away so latet"
Onr noble boy Is a child no more,
He has grown to man's estate
Be has gone a-cntirting Minnie Gray,
The reason he alays so lata ;
For her golden bsir and eyes of blue
Hare stolen his heart awav,
Aad he goes in the holy twilight hour
A wooing tweet Minnie Gray. "
Why does the maiden litre him away,
Now we are growing eld T
And we have shielded him all bis life,
Our love has never grown cold t
The maid can never love bim as wa
Have loved him all hia years,
Who have led him along the path of life,
Sharing hia smiles and tesra."
" But Millie, remember long years ago,
When 1 was haudacme and gay,
And you a maiden ao fair and sweet
That you stole my heart away.
I had a father old and gray.
And a mother kind and true.
Who loved me fondly all my life
But my heart went out to yon."
A blush crept over her withered ohest.
Her eves shone clear and mild ;
Ko longer, ahe chilled the lovely maid
For winning swsy her child ;
She thought ol the long ago, when she
Stood close by her lover's side,
In the little church, and the mau of Ood
Made her a happy bride.
BY LIZZIE LINTON.
As pore as the snow on the mountain,
As fair aa the light of day,
As gay as the laughing fountain,
Was beautiful Ada Urey.
Her tresses were softer then velvet,
Her brow was unahsdewed by care,
Ber eheek, the rose-tint of the sea-ahell,
Was bordered vrilh white lillies fair.
Tier lips, like rich cardinal flowers,
Would oft part in laughter and glee ;
Tier voice it wus softor snd clearer
Than the tones of a silver bell be.
Ah me. but it nevermore ringeth
'Mong the bills snd the blossoming trees ;
Her step falls no more on the earth-land.
And her laugh U ne'er heard on the breeze.
For one she loved betler than sunlight,
And trustedbut trusted in vain
Took home tn his bosom the wine-cup,
And she was ne'er happy agaiu.
But slowly and sadly she faded,
Aa fades the pale star sway,
Till she went to her home 'mong the angels,
The rsdiant Ada Grey.

"DOING" A RICH UNCLE.
Deaf Uncle Jeff. and the Little
BY ABBOTT LEE.
Never ttai mich a commotion known in
tha aunnla of domestic monpery and
broornery and sorubberv and dustery. All
good liotise-wivss know how to turn
house npnida down, and the dwelling into
which we are about to introduce our rend
era, was just in this agreeable predicament
The curtains were down and the earned
were tit) : the floors were wet and tha cia
terns dry ; everything was out of ita pluce
in the endeavor to put everything into it ,
and the whole household Was in disorder
while being put in order : and all because
an undo Was coming.
All the little and the great Pokenhams
were mustered and marshalled and drilled
Mr. Pokenham took upon himself tbe office
" Now ifirls no quarreling, no contra

They'd get a troublesome customer,"
said Mies Poketibam the first
" Yea. but one that I hone will pay well.

Thanks to th Hide sister of the primi
tive old i a Ids, Fanny Carr, everything
was at length in perfeet readiness the
earpela were all tlowrl, and the curtains
were all up tbe floors were dry, the fires
were lit; the covers, were stripped from
the beat ohairs, the sofa wheeled to the
best plaee, tbe fire was blar ing In all the
beauty of concavity, eonvexity; and con
tiguity and every lace arranged ao aa to
look delighted at the arrival of tiresome,
troublesome, suappish, cross, old uncle
There came a sound of brilliant blowing
of horns ever body strained their eyes.
The Royal Blew flew past in grand style,
the horses prancing and capering; and (he
guard making melody with a bugle born ;
on it whirled and whirled, never stopping
lor any body, and of oonrse, no uncle Jeff,
could be there, ttnd so two tedious hours
were spent in fidgelings and guessing ; and
then the slow coach was heard coming
lumbering and trailing along, and it stopped
at tha steps of the rnspectable house where
had been all the dusting and mopping and
brushing and brooming, snd a great mas
culine head, with thick, heavy features
and bushy eye brows, and largo lips, poked
itself out of the window, and looked up to
the hoUHC in Question, surveying ill well
hearthed-aloned step, snd its clean windows
and the scarlet moreon curtains through
them, and the bright blnce of the chcoiful
fire glowing and flickering over the win
dow frames, with a most morose, unpleas
ant look ; whereupon Mrs. Pokenham, and
all the tribe of Pokenhaius, little and big,
rushed out of the parlor into the hall, mid
out of the hall on to the door stops, ami Mi a.
Pokenham began to delight her own buucv
olent heart by assuring herself and ber
uncle, and congratulating herarlf upon the
information, that ber dear, kind, good uncle
Jeffrey wag really looking full twenty years
younger than when ahe last snw him.
"Dear uncle Jeffrey I how kind of you to
come and aeo ua I how delighted I am to
reoeive you to the bosom of uiy affection
ale family I My dear Mr. Pokeidmui will
be much rejoiced to find yon are among
us, and all my darling children have been
ho anxious to welcome you that they could
iii'ither eat, drink, nor sloop, for thinking
and tulking about you. But pray take care
of the steps they are so Blunting, and slip
pery, and dangerous not thut you are in
the leant infirm, but I myself had an awk
ward slip from them one day. I declare
you look more juvenile than any of ns.
Daniel Humphrey call the servant to
take care of your uncle's luggage. Hum
phrey, call somebody. There, can't you
take it yourselves? My dear uncle Jeffrey,
pray, wait till a servant oan come. Dan
iel 1 Humphrey I why don't you move ? " 1
Daniel and Humphrey stood with their
hands in their pockets, staring very con
temptuously as (he crosB-grainedold gentle,
man took up a small hair trunk and leather
hat-box in bis hand, and, under the run
ning cannonade of Mrs. Pokenhmu's speech,
proceeded to ascend the tliiiht of steps,
taking ds little notico of tha lady proprie
tress of the mansion as though he had
heard her not, which suppositious case ap
peared to be pretty nearly the true one, an
on their entrance into the parlor, the mo
rose old gontlonmn, laying bis luggage
very deliberately on the floor, proceeded
to draw Irom tha depths of his capacious
pockets a very serious looking ear-born,
which, having adinsted to his ear, he turned
a sour look upon Mrs. Pokenham, aud for
the first time openod his lips.
1 Well, ma'am, I told you I'd come some
time or other, and I'm here."
Had all Mrs. 1 okenham s energy and elo
quence gone for nothing? Had it all been
wasted on a deaf old mau, who had not
been able to hear a syllable of her melli
fluous accents? Waa it all to do over
ain, and that too, lo the detriment of her
lungs at the top of her breath? Yes,
seemingly so, and accordingly, the poor
hard-worked lady began agaiu shouting as
loud as possible :
" Mv dear Uncle Jeffrev. we are all de
lighted to see you, and looking so well
younger than ever."
" Hey I what I
''We are all so triad to see youl You
arc looking so well?" shouted Mrs. Po
kenham, growing very red in the faoe.
"Do you think I look well, then? said
the cross old gentleman.
U charmingly. Twenty years younger
than when I last saw you."
"Hey? what?" -
" You are looking so much better than
you did some time back. Nobody believed
that you trere the same person. 1 am sorry
however, to see that you arc rather dull of
"Dull or what?"
" A little deaf," shouted Mrs. Pokenham.
" Deaf 1 who says that I'm deaf? a set of
stupid people. I should like to know who
told you I was deaf I a parcel of iguorant
"O.I see that il was all a mistake I only
thought that perhaps you had got a lit
tle cold nothing more, shouted Mrs. Po
" I'm no more deaf than you are !" said
the sottr-visaged gentleman.
" rio. no. uncle. 1 see that you are not.
dou't know what I could have been think
ing of," said Mrs. Pokenham, whose lungs
Degati to complain at being put into such
seveie requisition. " But now, uncle take
tiio easy chair it is suoh an easy one we
got it on purpose for you.
1 dou t watit your eaer chair I anv
chair is eas to a healthy rutin like rue! I
uppose you think 1 am eetting old I
U. no. dear uncle Jellrey ; yon look full
twenty years younger than when I saw you
last. Here, Fanny Carr, do take away this
reesinir-eowu snd slippers. I don t know
who could have thought of treating , mv
ear uncle Jeffrey as if he were oi l or an
invalid. Pray, Fanny Carr, do move this
foot stool, aud Wheel this Unwieldy chair
The little old maid drew nrar much as if
he bad been a little mouse approaching
lion, and proceeded to do as she was bid
with oue of the most frightened airs in the
world. The great cross man looked down
a colossal statue on the diminutive
ttle thing who was thus called to wait
upon his high mightiness.
Won t you go Dear the Dre, uncle Jet
frey ? it was made on purposo lor you ; wc
thought you might be cold, shouted Mrs.
" Cold I " sneered Uncle Jeff, unbuttoning
Do opeu the window, Fanny Carr, my
uncle Jeffrey will be suffocated."
' 1 wish veu'd let the window be and
to," grow led uncle Jeff.
" Aud now, uncle Jenrey, win you take
or coffee ? we have Iheni bolb ready."
" Do you tbiuk I'm a tee-totaller ? I
hate slops! ' ,
" t'uele Jeffrey shall have a rump Streak
oyster sauce. Would you like that?
shrieked Mrs. Pokonbam. .
" I don't liko to be plagued I" growled
Poor Mrs. fokeuhain sat down In her
chair pretty considerably exhausted with
shouting, and proceeded to lament her
self and console herself iu a low voice per
fectly conafertabls iu cnslc JesVs uot being
able tc hear her, in spite or hie assurance
that he was by no manner of means deaf.
" Well, and so he's deaf) deaf as a door
nail I and how in the woiM I am to go on
making myself agreeable, I don't know
I shall anon be perfectly exhausted. And
yet there is one little comfort in it we
need not be so very particular what we
Say. Wc may be able to express our sen
timents without being constantly in dan
ger of stumbling over seme affront or so
other." " Mmma,"aald Mrs. Pokenham the clJ
est, " I suppose we may apeak too, as uncle
Jeff Is too deaf to bear a word that wc can
"Say what yon will, only don't look to
wards him, lest he suspect that we arc
speaking of him."
I was only going to give you my opin
ion of this new relation of ours ( why, mam
ma be ia amazingly ugly."
"What of that?" said Mr. Pokenham,
"he Is rich as a Jew."
" Did you ever see such thick lips such
a thick nose, and suoh a thiok head?" auiJ
Miss Pokonhum the second.
" Don't mike me laugh," said Miss To-
kenhain the first, " or else onr deaf uncle
Jeff will think I'm laughing at him.
H What are von talking about ? " asked
uncle Jeff, placing an ear-born ready for
"They were talking, girl like, uncle Jef
frej," shouted poor Mrs. Pakenham, of

saw those of her formidaole visitor fixed

" Pray, who is that little thing f " asked
uncle Jeffrey of Mrs. Pokenham, as they
wore lelt together in the evening, " pray

" Do you mean Fanny Carr ? 0, shs is a

Mrs. Pokenham of course Immediately
withdrew Iter proffer. She could only re
gret that ahe had been so inadvertent as to
place her highly endowed ttnd fortunately
rich Uncle Jeffrey at the same table with a
poor little minkin old maid. Fanny Carr
was still tolerated, and ui.cle Jeffrey seemed
fsr to vercoats bis aversleo lo her as to
permit various little offices which she waa
cbiittantly performirg for him in her char
acter of general usefulness t Bhe arranged

first fit of sullonness, uncle Jeff permitted
himself to be installed into its comfortable

reached him his foot stool, and got him the
newspapers, and handed him his bat and
stick when he went out, and took them
when he came in, and always met blm with
a smile ; and, some way or an other,' deaf
uncle Jeff could hear Fanny Carr's gentle
voioe almost without the help of his ear
horn, belter Ihan he could understand
other people with it.

And ao saying, Master Daniel walked up
to his (leaf uncle Jen, and, with ao lusinuat

that I think you have net sense enough to

"lley? what do you say?" said dsaf
uncle Jeff, applying his ear born.
"Ofle!" exclaimed the little old maid,
turning very red " how can you mock
his infirmities in that manner."
' I'll tell you what," said Master Daniel,
turning sharply round upon the poor de

The Printer's Estate! Fruits and How They Should be Eaten.
The Universal bwmof of Medicine for

fruits, which in some respects are at vArl. .

which will interest out readers now, wheri
our markets arc supplied with frail: 1 It
lays that fruils afford an endleas supply of
dolicious and wholesome food, but as tbe
are usually taken, may more properly bo
considered as dangerous luxuries than' as
healthy food. The great error in their tie
consists In making them a dessert, iu over
leading with them, aud eating them at, all
limes between meals. When takeu along
with our food, as food, and In moderation
Ihoy are highly oonduoivc td health. The
peach is the most delicious and digestible
of the stone fruits. They should form part
of either meal, or be eaten moderately
when the stomach Is empty. .' Plume are
less digestible ; all pulpy atone frulta are
more or less so, and prone to foment Iti the
stomaoh. The apple it dne Of tile best of
fruits, and when baked will agree with the
moat delicate stomachs, and is excellent in
sickness. Pears and oranges are also good,
but the latter should be rejected.' Straw
berries are a wholesome fruit, but they
should not be eaten with ice cream, thera
ia nothing more wholesome than water'
melons. They act powerfully on the kid
noya, and arc abotlt the beat of all kidney
exciters. . .
