XT OID FASHION1 BONO.
Fashion, little flippant thing?
What In fashion did thee bring j
' That the greatest folks shoald make
Such a fuss for Fashion's sake f
Why large buckles t why the small J
Why no buckles cow at all f
If the matter's right I state,
Alamod for Fashion's sake.
One time this, and one time that
Now a large, then little hat
Fight a duel life's at stake
Kill and die for Fashion's sake.
See the misses full of glee,
How they'll sit and sip their tea,
Not a morsel must they take,
They must faBt for Fashion's sake.
See the masters full of pride,
Twelve inch cane and hats on side,
How they swagger, act the rake,
Curse and swcai for Fashion's sake.
Fickle Fashion, why this fuss,
Acting and behaving thus t
Must the wise their whims partake,
And be fools for Fashion's sake?
But I see tho reason's plain,
Trade will have the greater gain,
Milliners and tailors make
Larger bills for Fashion's sake.
HOW TO KEEP HIM.
'Out again to-night t" said Mrs.
Hayes, fretfully, as her husband rose from
tho tea-table, and donned his great coat.
44 Yes, I have an engagement with
Moore; shall be in early; leave a light in
tho library. Good night." And with a
careless nod William Hayes left the room.
"Always tho way," murraurod Lizzie
Haves, sinking back unon a sofa. " out
every night; 1 don't believe he cares one
bit about me now, and yet we have been
married but two years. No roan could
have a more orderly bouse, I am sure;
and I never go anywhere, I am suro; and
I am not a bit extravagant. Oh dear!
why is it I 1 was not born rich; ho did
not marry me for money, and he must
have loved me then why docs ho now
treat mo with such neglect f And with her
mind filled up with sucb fretful queries
Lizzie Hayes fell asleep on the sofa.
Lot mo print her picture as she lay
there. She was a blonde, with a very
small, graceful figure, and a very pretty
face. The hair, which showed by its
waves its tendency to curl, was brushed
smoothly back, and gathered into a rich
knot at tho back; "it was such a bother
to curl it," she said; her cheek was pale,
and her whole face wore a discontented
expression. IIer dress was a neat chintz
wrapper, but 6ho wore neither collar nor
sleeves. " What's the use of dressing up
just for William 1"
Lizzie 6lept soundly for two hours, and
then awoke suddenly. She sat up glan
cing at the clock drearily at the long in
terval still to be spent alone before bed
time. Tho library was just over tho room in
w Inch she sat, and down the furnace flue,
through the register, a voice came to tho
young wife's cars; it was her husband's.
44 Well, Mocre, what is a man to do f
I was disappointed, and I must bavo
pleasure somewhere. Who could have
fancied that Lizzie Jarvics, so perfectly
sprightly and loving, could change to tho
fretful dowdy she cow is f Who wants
to stay at homo and hear his wife whin
ing all the eveuing about her troublcsomo
servants, and headaches and all sorts of
bothers. She has so got the knack of
drawling, that upon my lifo I don't be
lieve she could speak a pleasant word."
Lizzie sat as if stunned. Was this
true t She looked in the glass. If not
exactly a dowdy her costume was certain
ly not fit for an evening, even if it were
an evening at homo, with only William to
admiro. She rose and softly wont to her
own room, with bitter and sorrowful
thoughts, and a firm resolution to win
back her husband, and then, his love re
gained, keep it.
The next morning William came into
tho breakfast room with his usual careless
manner, but a bright smile came on his
lips as ho saw Lizzie. A pretty chintz
wrapper, with a neat collar, and sleeves
of snowy muslin, and a wreath of full
curls, had readily metamorphosed her;
while the blush his admiring glance called
tip to her cheek did not detract from her
beauty. At first William thought there
must bo a guest, but glaucing, no found
they were alone.
44 Come, William," your coffeo w ill be
6tone cold," 6aid Lizzie, in a cheery ploas
Not ono fretful speech, not one com
plaint, foil upon William's ear during
tho meal. The newspaper, bis usual so
lace at that hour, lay untouched, as Liz
zio chatted gaily on every pleasant sub
ject she thought of, warming by his grat
ified interest and cordial manner.
44 You will be at home to dinner?" she
said as he went out.
44 Can't to day, Lizzie; I have businoss
out of town; but I'll be at home early to
lea; have something substantial for I
don't expect to dine. Gdod-by." And
the smiling look, warm kiss, and lively
whistle, were a marked contrast ter bis
lounging, careless gait the previous eve
ning. " I am in the right path," said Lizzie,
in a low whisper. 44 Oh, what a fool I
have been for two years 1 A fretful dow
dy 1 William, you 6hall never say that
Tea time came, and William came with
it. A little figure, in a tasty silk dress,
smooth curls, and oh I such a lovely blush
and smile, stood ready to welcome Will
iam as ho camo in; and tea timo passed
as the morning meal had done.
After tea there was to raovemont as
usual toward the hat rack. William
stood up behind tho table, lingering, chat
ting, tilt Lizzie also rose.
" What are you making Lizzie P
44 A pair of slippers. Do not you re
member how much you admired the'pair
I mado for you ever so long ago!"
"I remember; black velvet with flow
ers on them. I used to put my feet on
tho fender and dream of the blue eyes,
light curls, and wished lime would move
faster to the day when I could bring homo
my bonnie wee wife, to make music in
Lizzie's face sadencd for a moment, as
6ho thought of the last two years, and
how little music she made for his loving
heart, gradually weaning it from its alle
giance, and then said : 44 1 wonder if you
love music as you did then!"
44 Of course I do. I have often drop
ped in at Miss Smith's for nothing else
than to hear the music."
"I can play and sing better than Miss
Smith," said Lizzie, half pouting.
44 But you always 6ay you are out of
practice when I ask you."
' 44 1 bad tho piano tuned this morning.
Now open it and we'll hear its sounds."
William obeyed her joyfully, and toss
ing aside her sewing, Lizzie took the pi
ano stool. She had a very sweet voice,
not powerful, but most musical, and 6ho
was a verv fair performer on the piano.
44 Oh yes! I know you disliko operat
ic music in the parlor."
The little mantle clock struck eleven.
44 Eleven ! I thought it was about
nine; I ought to apologise, Lizzie, as I
used to do, for staying so long; as I can
truly say as I did then, that tho timo has
riasscd so pleasantly, I can scarcely bo
ieve it is so late."
The piano was closed, Lizzie's work put
in the basket, and William was ready to
go upstairs; but glancing back hosaw
his lillllo wife near the fire-place, her
hands clasped, her head bent, and largo
tears fell from her eyes. Ho was beside
her in an instant.
44 Lizzie, darling, are you ill ! What
is tho matter!"
44 Oh, William 1 I have been such a
bad wife! I heard you tell Mr. Moore,
last evening, how I had disappointed yon ;
but I will try to make your home pleas
ant, indeed I will, if you will forgive and
44 Love you I O, Lizzie, you can not
guess how dearly I love you.
As the littlo wife lay down that night,
she thought: "I have won him back
again! Better than that; I bavo learned
to keep him !"
Accident to the Great Eastern.
The 44 big 6hip," as tho Great Eastern is
commonly called in England, met with
another accident on her last voyage to
New York. It appears that while oil
Montauk Point she ran over a sunken
rock, doing considerable damngo to the
outer skin, and causing the vessel to leak
badly. By means of the steam pump,
however, tho injured compartment was
kept tolerably free of water, but when the
vessel arrived at her anchorage ground
in Flushing Bay, and the pumps wero
stopped for a short timo, it was observed
that she was settling by the stern. How
to get at tho leak appears to puzzle her
commander. At all events, nothing can
bo done to relieve her until her cargo is
discharged. Even then it may bo impos
sible to repair her, aud her agents may
find it necessary to send her homo in her
present leaky condition. A consultation
on tho subject of repairing her at that
port was held on Friday; but nothing
definite could be arrived at until tho dis
charge of the cargo.
A Chaplain Spreading Himself.
Rev. J. A. Anderson, Chaplain of the
3d Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, was
decidedly on the rampage on tho 4th of
July. At tho closo of the oration at tho
Agricultural Hall, ho pronounced tho fol
lowing strange benediction:
44 Aud now may the God of Washing
ton, the God of Foote, Halleck, McClel
lan and Lincoln, nerve, guide and surge
this whole nation till Richmond is taken,
Charleston burnt, Secession annihilated,
and the slop-shop Union men turned out
of existence. Amen." .
The Wind. Tho wind blows accord
ing to Prof. Airy, of England, only from
eight points of thetfompass namely: the
S. S. W., the W. S. W., a point between
the W. and N. W., another between the
N. and E., another between the E. and
S. S. W., the N., the W. and IbeE. The
wind never blows directly from the South.
The Age of our Earth.
We extract the following from Agass-
iz s articlo on 44 Methods of Study on Nat
ural History," in the Atlantic Monthly:
44 Among the astounding discoveries of
modern science is that of the immense
periods which have passed in tho gradual
formation of tho earth. So vast were
the cycles of lime preceding even tho ap
pearance of man on the surface of our
globe, that our own period 6coms as yes
terday when compared with tho epochs
that have gone before it. Had we only
the evidence of tho deposits of rock heap
ed above each other in regular strata by
the slow accumulation of materials, they
alone would convinco us of tho long and
slow maturing of God's work on earth,
but when we add to these tho successive
populations of whoso life this world has
been the theater, and whose remains nro
hidden in tho rocks into which tho mud,
or sand, or soil whatever kind on which
they lived has hardened in tho course of
time or the enormous chains of moun
tains whoso upheaval divided theso pe
riods of quiet accumulation by great con
vulsions or tho changes of a different
nature in the sinking of land beneath tho
ocean, or tho gradual raising of continents
and islands above it or tho wearing of
river beds, or tho filling of extensive wa
ter basins, till tho marshes first and then
dry land succeeded to inland seas or tho
slow growth of coral reefs, thoso wonder
ful seawalls raised bv tho little ocean ar
chitects whoso own bodies furnish both
the building stones and the cement that
binds together, and who have worked so
busily during tho long centuries, that there
are extensive countries, mountain chains,
islands, and long lines of coast consisting
solely of their remains or tho countless
forests that must have grown up, flour
ished, died and decayed, to fill the store
houses of coal, that feed the fires of tho
human raco to-day if wo consider all
thoso records of the past, the intellect fails
to grasp a chronology for which our ex
perience furnishes no data, and tho timo
that lies behind ns seems as much an eter
nity to our conception as tho future that
stretches indefinitely beforo us."
A Bear Ride. Last week, three chil
dren of Mr. Geo. Hooker, farmer, of Cen
tcrville, C. E., tho eldest a boy of about
twelve years of age, a younger brother
about ten, and a little sister about seven,
having gone out to the edge of tho woods
in quest of wild cherries, tho eldest boy,
in getting over a fenco in advance of his
brother and sister, fell on tho back of a
full grown bear that was lying under tho
cherry tree, retailing himself, doubtless,
with the fruit within Ids reach. Alarmed
at the unexpected occurrence, tho bear im
mediately arose and made what hasto ho
could for the woods. Tho boy clung to
his back for a few yards, when ho fell off,
screaming 44 a bear, a bear," on which the
other children ran homo as fast as they
could. The boy says that when ho fell
off, tho bear turned round aud showed his
big white teeth, and then increased his
speed toward tho woods. Tho children
had to run a distance of ten acres beforo
reaching their home, which they did in a
state of great exhaustion.
Lost in Smoke. A young gentleman,
aged twenty-eight, once boasted that ho
had been in the habit of smoking at least
twelve cigars a day for eleven years I
44 Boys," said a schoolmaster, 44 what
is that youn" gentleman losing, besides
injuring his health! Tako your slates
and pencils. If that young man should
live forty years longer, and contiuue the
same course, how much will he have spent
in smoking!" The boys quickly mado
tho calculation, which showed that tho
enormous sum of $3,935.20 would havo
been puffed into the air! A littlo for
tune spent in cigars alone! This was
charging the cigars at four cents each, the
most common price, although many smok
ers pay more. Teachers will do well to
give their pupils similar exercises, illus
trative of the cost of both smoking and
