Alas, Fr Giacamo,
Too late ! but follow me ;
Hush ! draw the curtain, so !
She is dead, quite dca 1, you see.
Poor little lady ! she lies
With the light gone out of her eyes,
But her features stiil wear that soft
Gray meditative expression,
Which you must Slave noticed oft,
And admired too, at confession.
How siiiutly she looks, and how meek!
Though this be the chamber of death,
I fancy I feel her breath
As I kiss her on the cheek.
With that pensive religious face,
She has gone to a holier place !
And I hardly appreciated her,
Her praying, fasting, confessing,
Poorly, I owe, I mated her;
I thought her too cold, and rated her
For her endless image caressing.
Too saintly lor me by far,
As pure and as cold as a star,
Not fashioned for kissing and pressing,
But made for a heavenly crown.
Ay, father, let us go down,
But lirst, if you please, your blessing!
Wine ? No ? Come, come, you must !
You'll bless it with your prayers,
And quaff a cup, I trust,
To the health of the saint up stairs?-
My heart is aching so !
And I feci so weary and sad,
Through the blow that I have had,
You'll sit, Fru Giacamo ?
My friend ! (and a friend I rank you
Forhe sake oi that saint,) nay, nay i
Here's thewiae. as you love me, stay!
'Tis Moutepulciano ! Thank you.
Heigho! 'Tis now six summers
Since I won that angel and married her:
I was rich, not old, and carried her
Off in the face of all comers.
So fresh, yet so brimming with soul!
A tenderer morsel, I swear,
Never made the dull black coal
Of a monk's eye glitter and glare.
Your pardon ! nay, keep your chair !
I wander a little, but mean
No offence to the gray gaberdine!
Of the church, Fra Giacamo,
I'm a faithful upholder, you know
But (humor nie! ) she was as sweet
As the saints in your convent windows,
So gentle, so meek, so discreet,
She kuew not what lust does or sin does.
I'll coutc-fs, tbonc'j, before we were one,
I d -i ined her lesj saintly, and thought
The blood i;i her veins had caught
Some natural warmth from the sun.
I was wrong. I was blind as a bat,
Brute th u I was, how I blundered !
Though such a mistake as that
Night have occurred as pat
To ii'nety-nine men in a hundred,
Yourself, for example? you've seen her?
Spite her modest and pious demeanor,
And the manners so nice and precise,
Seemed there not color and light,
Bright motion and appetite,
That were scarcely consistent with ice?
Externals implying, you see.
Internals less asimly than human?
Pray speak, for between you and me
You're not a bad judge of a woman !
A jest, but a jest! . . . Very true:
'Tis hardly becoming to jest,
And that saint up stairs at rest,
Her soul may be listening, too!
Well may your visage turn yellow,
I was always a brute of a fellow!
To think how I doubted and doubted,
Suspected, grumbled at, flouted,
That golden-haired angel, and solely
Because she was zealous and holy!
Noon and night and morn
She devoted herself to piety;
Not that she seemed to scorn
Or dislike her husband's society;
But the claims of her mid superseded
All that I asked for or needed,
And her thoughts were far awaj
From the level of sinful clay,
Aud she trembled if earthly matters
Interlcrred with her tier and po.lers.
Poor dove, she so fluttered in Hying
Above the dim -. upors of hell
Bent on self-sauetifying
That she never thought of trying
To save her husband as well.
And while she was duly elected
For place in the heavenly roll,
I (brute that I was!) suspected
Her Hii'iiner of saving her soul.
So, half for the fun of the thing,
What did I (blasphemer!) but lling
On my shoulders the gown of a monk
Whom I managed lor that very day
To get safely out of the way
And seat me, half sober, half drunk,
With the cowl thrown over my face,
In the father confessor's place.
In her orthodox sweet simplicity,
With that pensive gray expression,
She sighfully knelt at confession,
While I bit my ips till they bled,
And dug my nails in my hand,
And heard v ith averted head
What I'd guessed and could understand.
Each word was a serpent's f ting,
But wrapt in my gloomy gown,
I sat, like a marble thing,
As she told me all ! Sit down !
More wine, Fra Giacamo! -
r i i - f iove mc ! No ?
What, have these dry lips drank
So deep of the sweets of pleasure
Sub row, but quite without measure
Thai Moutepulciano tastes rank?
Come, drink ! 't will bring the streaks
Of crimson back to your cheeks ;
Come, drink again to the saint
Whose virtues you loved to paint,
1 Who, stretched on her wifel3' bed,
, AViUi Vne tender gray expression
You used to admire at confession,
J Lic& poisoned, overhead !
Sit .till, or by heaven, you die !
Fare to face, soul to soul, you and I
H?ve settled accounts, in a line
PI usant fj ihion, over our wine.
Sir not, and seek not to fly,
Nay, whether or not, ;you are mine!
Thank Moutepulciano for giving
Your death in such delicate sips;
'T is not every monk ceases In ing
Willi so pleasant a taste on his lips ;
But, lest Moutepulciano unsurely should kiss,
Take this ! and this! and this!
Coyer him over, Pietro,
And bury him in the court below,
Yon car. be secreet, lad, I know !
And, hark you, then to the convent go,
Bid every bell of the convent toll,
And the monks say mass for mistress' soul.

Constitution Lfe Syrup has Produced a Revolution

What may seem almost incredible is, that many
diseases hitherto considered hopelessly incurable
are frequently cured in a few days or weeks ; and
we cheerfully invite the investigations of the libe
ral minded nnd scientific to cures which have no
parallel at the present day.
During the past five years we have contended
with obstacles and overcome opposition as hercu
lean as were ever encountered by any reformers.
Rapidity of Care.
Some say, " Your cures are too quick," while
others doubt their permanence, and think that
diseases can only be cured by the " slow, remu
nerative process of Nature."
This is our reply : In health, the bodv, like a
well-balanced scale, is in a state of equilibrium.
But when, from any cause, down goes one side of
the scale, we have the effect of disease. What is
requisite, is to restore the normal balance of the

originating from an IMPURE STATE OF THE
BLOOD, aud for all (hereditary) Diseases trans

It is so universally admitted that Constitution

need not reiterate that it is emphatically the great
