BY ANNA.
There's a frown upon your brOw, Mary,
A tear within your eye,
A.scbra'Upqn your Hp, Mary j . "
Why is it, Mary, why? '
Methouirht thy path of Hfc; Mary,
Meandered through sweet vales, '
"Where flowers' margined rivulets,
Were fanned by softest gales.
I'd eve'ii (fared fo'drcau," Mary," '
'vXo passion's storm could rage,
And leave its dire destruction track
Upon thy youug heart's page.
You say that "frleuds are fulsc," Marj' ;
'TIs but an old, old tale
If one ever had so many friends, ' , . ; .
But some were sure to fall.
And do yon deem this life, Mary, ,
Is naught but stars and sun ?
With thornlcss flowers 'long all the way,
And we glide unharmed on ?
Ah, no ! 'tis never so, Mary, '
For clouds will often rise,
And storms may close tbe day, Mary,
That ope'd with fairest skies. '
Flowers that loveliest blopin, Mary,
Are oft with poison filleti,, ,
And m&ny a trusting heart, Maj-y, '

Y'et do not be dismayed, Mary, ,
The clouds will soon remove :
Other flowers will bloom, Mary,
And some may thornless prove.
But you must trust in God, Mary :
Without Him friends arc' naught;
Ask and He'll not refuse, Mary,
To guide your every thought.
Xone ever came to Illtn, Mar-, .
With earnest, trustful prayer,
But found the heart grow light, Mary,
The way grow smooth and fair.

The Way to Keep Him.
"Out again to-night ?" said Mrs.
Hayes," fretfully, as her husband
rose from the tea-table, and donned
us great coat.
"Yes, I have an engagement with
Moore. , I shall bo in early : have
a lisht in the library. Good night."
And with a careless nod, William
Hayes left the room. ' ?
"Always the way'- murmured
Lizzie Hayes; sinking back upon
the sofa. ,"0ut every, night. I
don't believe he loves me any
more. Oh, dear,, why is it? I was
not rich ; he did not marry me for
my money, and he must have loved
me then ; why does he treat me
with so much neglect?" And with
her mind filled with 6uch frightful
queries," Lizzie fell asleep on the
Boia. i.
Let me paint her picture as 6he
ay'there. She was a blonde, with
a small graceful figure, and a pret
ty face. The hair, which ' showed
by its rich waves its natural tend
ency to curl, was brushed smooth-
y back, and gathered into a ricn
knot at the back it was such a
bother-to j curl . it, she said her
cheek was' pale, and her whole face
wore a discontented expression.
Her dress was a neat( chintz wrap
pel', but she wore neither fjollars
nor sleeves, "wnat's tiie use oi
dressing up just for William?? ;
Lizzie slept soundly for two hours,
and then awoka suddenly.". :Sh4 sat
up, glanced at the clock, and sighed
drearily, at the prospect of the long
interval still , to be . spenftoefore
bedtime, f . , -
The' library,' was just over the
room in which she sat, and dow
the fura ace-flue, through the regis
ter, a voice came to the young wife's
ears.' . It was her husband's '
, 'Well, Moore, what's a man to do?
I must have pleasure somewhere.
Who would have fancied that Lizzie
eTarvis, so pretty, sprightly, i and
loving, could change to the fretful
dowdy she is now? . Who wants to
stay at home to hear his wife whi
ning all the. evening about her
' troublesome (servants,; - and her
headache and all sorts of bothers?
She's got the knack of that drawl
ing whine so pat,pon my life, I
don't believe she can speak pleas
antly." ' :". ,r,r ' ' ,.'
- Lizzie Sat as if stunned. ' Was
this true? : She looked in the glass.
If not exactly dowdy, her costume
was certainly not suitable for an
evening with only William :to 'ad
mire. She rose, and softly went to
her room, with, bitter', ; sorrowful
thoughts,- and a firm resolution to
win back her htfshand's heart," and
then, his loVe' regained, to keep it
The next morning William came
into the breakfast room with his
usual careless manner, but a bright
smile came on his lips as hq ' saw
Lizzie. ! A pretty chintz, with neat
collar and sleeves of show-white
muslin', with a wreath of soft full
curls, had ' really metamorphosed
her; while tho. blush her husband's,
admiring glancb- called up to her
cheek did'.nbt 'detract from her
beauty., At first William thought
there must b6 a guest, but' glanc
ing around, " he found they .were
alone,-;; - - -
,MCp"me, Wijlianl', your coffee will
sodn' bb cold," said - Lizzie !iii a
cheerful, pleasant voice, j i,
"It must :be. cool tjll you sweeten
my breakfast with a kiss,". said her
husband crossing the. room to, her
side; and LizzieVljeart bounded a$
she recognizetl the old lover's tone
and manner.' ' . ' , ''
" ' Not one fretful speech, not ons
complaint fell upon William's ear
through the meal.' The newspaper,
the usuaj solaco of that hour, lay
untouched, as; Lizzie i chatted gaily
on-every pleasant topic she-could
think of, warmi ng by ! his grateful
interest and cordial manner. ; r;.:
"You will be home to dinner??
she said, as he .went out.
'Can't to-day, Lizzie ; I've busi
ness out of town; but I'll be home
early to tea. Have something sub
stantial, for I dph't 'expect to dine.
Good-bye.'1 And the smiling Jodk;
warm kiss, and lively whistle, were
a marked contrast to his lounging,
careless gait of the previous even
ing. ;. " . !
"Iam in 'the right path," , said
Lizzie, in a low , whisper. "Oh,
what a fool I have been for the last
two years! 'A fretful dowdy!'
William, you shall never say that
again." ' . .
Lizzie loved her husband ,with
real wifely devotion, and her lips
would quiver as she thought of his
confidence to his friend Moore; but
like a brave little woman, she stif
led back the bitter feelings, and
tripped off to perfect her plans.
The grand piano, silent for months,
was opened, and the linen covers
taken from the furniture, Lizzie
saying, "He shan't find any parlors
more pleasant than ; his own, I'm
determined."
- Tea-time came, and ' William
came with it. A little figure in a
tasty, bright silk dress, smooth
curls, and oh! such . a lovely blush
and smile, stood ready to welcome
William as he came in ; and tea
time passed as th6 morning meal
had donoi After tea there was no
movement as visual toward the hat
rack." William stood up beside the
table, lingering and chatting, until
Lizzie arose. ' She led him to the
light, warm parlors, in their pretty
glow of tasteful arrangement, and
drew him down on the sofa beside
her. : He felt as if ho were court
ing over again, as ho watched her
fingers, busy' .With 'some' fancy
needlework, And ' listened to the
cheerful voice he, had loved so
dearly two years before. . '
" "What are' you making, Lizzie?"
"A pair of slippers." Don't you
remember how much you admired
the pair I worked for you oh ! ev
er so long j ago?' ' '
"I remember black velvet, with
flowers ;n them. I - used ' to put
my feet on the fenders, and dream
of blue eyes and bright ' curls, and
wished time would move: faster to
the day when I could bring my
bonny wife home to make music in
my house." 'rt v ' '
; Lizzie's face" saddened for a mo
ment, as :Bhe thought of the last
two yearsand how little m'usic 6he
had made for his loving heart, grad
ually weaning it( from its allegi
ance, and then she said; 1 '; '
',"1 wonder , if. you love music as
much p6w as. you did GxenV , !
?,Of .course, T dp. " I Very- often
drop into' Mrs. Smith's 'for nothing
else than to hear the music." ' "
"I can play and sing better than
Airs, bnilth," said Lizzie, pouting.
"But jrou always say you are out
oi; practice when 1 ask you."
, "I had'the piano tuned this mor
ning: Now open it and- we will
see how it sounds."
i William , obeyed joyfully, and
tossing i aside her sewing, Lizzie
took the) piano-stool. She had a
very swfet voice, not powerlul, but
most musical, ana was a very fair
performer on the piano."
.. "Ballids, Lizzie.',' .
"Ohj tes, I know you dislike op
era music in a parlor." .
. One ajong after, another, with a
nocwrf, or lively instrumental
piece, occasionally, between them,
nuea mranouier Hour pleasantly.
. The little mantle clock struck
eleventh.:' ,
. "Eleven ! I thought it was about
nine. . 1 ought to apologize, Lizzie,
as I useij to do, for staying so long;
and I c?in truly say, as I did then,
that the time has passed so pleas
antly I,pan scarcely believe it is so
late." .f
. Tho piano was closed, Lizzie's
work' pu. up in the basket, and
Williaui was ready to go up stairs ;
but glancing back, ho saw his lit
tle wife near the fireplace,her hands
clasped, her head bent, and large
tears, falling .from her eyes. He
was beSide her in an instant.
"Lizxie, darling; are you ill?
What the matter?" ,
, , "Oh, William, I have been such
abad 'wife I hear! you tell Mr.
Moore' fast evening how I' had dis
appointed you ; but I will try to
make your home pleasant. Indeed
I will, jf you will forgive and love
me.",,.; ,;,f ... - - .
"Love you I Oh, Lizzie, you can't
guess how dearly I. love you!"
As , the little wife lay down that
nightJ she thought :. . ,

Tilting Hoops.
. That it is necessary, in the cause
of public decency, to say nothing
a.bput good morals, for public jour
nals to enter a protest against an
infamous lashifln sio.W8.hQW terri
bly society is becoming ' demoral
ized. Tne: tilting hoop mania
among the women and girls of res
pectable families, is a startling ep
isode in American society. That
women of mature years should
wear them, and thus expose their
persons to the lascivious gaze of
street loafers, are indications that
the wearers naturally, if not really,
belong to the abandoned class by
whom this detestable fashion wad
first inaugurated but' that young
girls of respectable families are al
lowed to appear on the street in a
guise which identifies them with
publio prostitutes, with the sanc
tion or permission of their parents,
argues very, poorly for the good
sense or discretion of their parents
or guardians.
; Such sights are now daily to be
witnessed on our streets, as would
shame the Lorettes of Paris and
bring a blush to the cheeks of Cy
prians. ,:We have seen young la
dies of the most respectable (so
calledi families of this city, ex
pose tneir persons through the in
strumentality of . this infamous
iashionin a manner which calls
loudly for the action of the police.
To, the conservative influence of
that body we appeal for the pro
tection of public morals. They
should arrest every woman who
appears upon the streets in thu
abominable guise. This seems to
be the only effective remedy against
that fearful abandonment of Amer
ican women to the behests of fash
ion., .Let the remedy be . adopted
at once. It must be evident that
a crisis is being forced on in the
fashionable world which will soon
er or later call forth ' the "armed
intervention" of the public author
New York Union.
,t ,Two gentlemen walking together
were talking of the senses seeing,
feeling and the like. One remark
ed that his sense of hearing was
remarkable for its acuteness, while
the other was hot wonderfully en
dowed in this respect, but observed
that his . vision was . wonderful.
"Now, to illustrate,'' said he, J can
see a fly on the spire of yonder
church.' The other looked sharply
at the place indicated. 'AhP said

The Ruling Passion Strong
in Death.
We have read somewhere of a
hard case whom his friends had
tried every way to reclaim from his
confirmed habit of drinking. As
a last experiment, they took him
one night, while dead ' drunk, and
placed him away in a' coffin. In
order to convince him still strong
er that he was dead and gone, a
friend consented to disguise and
stow himself away in another col
fin to watch the effect, and carry
out according to circumstances tho
seriousjoke.
Having got over his nap, the he
ro of the story raised himself slow
ly in his coffin the next morning,
and looked around with no little
surprise. Seeing the other man in
the same fix, he shook Im muddy
head and rubbed his eyes and said:
"Hallo, stranger, can't you give
me an item?"
"You? why you'ro dead and bur
ied." : . . .
"You don't say so!" .
"Yes, but you are."
"Well, you're in tho samo bad
snap, ain't you ?" . .
" "Yes, I am, too."
" "Poor fellow !. Well, I must have
died very sudden anyhow. I was
out on a regular spree last night "
"Oh, me, you are mistaken. You
have been dead and buried three
years."
"The devil I have ! Well it don't
seem long to me. ' How long have
you been here, I'd like to know?"
"Five years." .
' "Five, eh! Well as you have
been here longer than I have, and
know the place better, just tell me
where I can get a good gin cock
tail?" ' -
To Wood-Growers.
The following remarks in refer
ence to preparing wool for market,
is copied from a circular issued by
Tyler, Mclnnes & Co., Wool Com
mission Merchants, Boston : ;
"It is very important that wool
growers should pay more attention
to the order in which their wool is
prepared for market, and, as the
next fllip.is near at hand, we'deem
it necessary ltd 'say a few words pn
11113 BUUJUUU
In order to secure a quick sale
and extreme market rates, wool
should be well washed.' and clipped
in seven or ten days after washing.
All buck fleeces, washed or un
washed, all half washed, and all
that remains two or three weeks
alter washing before it 13 clipped,
manufacturer's will not purchase
except at one-third discount off. .
Wool-growers cannot pay too
much attention to this matter. A
lot of wool well washed and in
good order always attracts the at
tention of buyers, and Commands a
price more than sufficient to pay
for the- extra care and labor be
stowed upon it."
How to Grow Beautiful. Persons may
outgrow disease and become healthy by
proper attention to the laws of their phys
ical constitution. By moderate and dally
exercise, men may become active and
strong in limb and muscle. But to grow
beautiful, howf Age dims tho lustre of
the eye and pales the roses on beauty's
cheek: while crowsfeet and furrows, and
wrinkles, and lost teeth, and gray hairs,
and bald bead, and tottering limbs, and
limning, most sadly mar the human form
divine. But dim as the eye is. pnlld and
suiiken as may be the face of beauty, and
:rati anu reeuie tnat once strong, erect, and
manly body, the immortal soul, just tleflir-
ing its wings for its home in heaven, may
look out through thoee faded windows ;is
beautiful as the dew-drop of summer's
morning, as melting as the tears that glis
ten in affection's eye by growing kindly,
by cultivating sympathy with all human
kind, by cherishing forbearance toward the
follies and foibles of our race, and feeding,
day by day, on that love to Uod and man
wh ich Win us from the brute and makes us
akin to angels.
Anecdote of Dr. Kmmons. A Panthe
ist miuister met him one day and abruptly
asked
"Mr. Emmons, how old are yon r
'Sixty, sir; and how old are you?"
"As old as the creation," was the answer,
in a triumphant tone.
-Then you are Of the same age with Ad
am and Eve J"
"Certainly ; I Was in the garden when
they were."
"I have always heard that there was a
third person in the garden with them," re
plied the doctor with great coolness; "but
1 never knew before that it was you t"
We heard a lawyer and a doctor
disputing the other day about a bill
a fellow owed ea:h of them. He
was only able to pay one of thtm,
and so he left the matter to them
selves as to who ought to have the
money. '
"I ought to have the money, as
a matter of course," said the law
yer, "for I saved him from going to
thepenitentiary.' . ..
"Well, said the doctor, "I saved
him from going to h 11 ? '
