The Amateur f armer,
I dreamt ot a bnautUul lime
When (he world thall happy bet
Wlra the elephant ao-i byenn
Shall blossom on every tree;
When tamarinds unci potatoes
bbsll oeaie their dreadtal roar)
When tnrnip tree aha I bloatom
In the garden lor ever more.
1 dreamt of a great republic
When the people thall slice West,
Bow plum and reap toinatoe
In the land they love the beat;
When pig iron end inolaMM
Shall blooin on every bill.
And chicken low in the barnyard,
While K'wseberriej toil at the mill.
I'm weary of feeing the cabbage
Handle the niku and the hoe;
I'm weary ol watching and waiting
For the grasshopper bush to grow
I long lor the time when spinach
Shall cope with bread and milk;
When hens shall lay potatoes,
And horses spin raw silk.
Oh ! swot" were tho vanished hour
When I wandered down the glen,
And wreathed my brow with tomatoes,
Or plucked the ripened hen;
When the doukoy twined up the trellis,
And the cucumber chirped in the graM)
And the sweot potato whistled
To its mate in tho mountain pass.
But gone are the dayB of childhood,
Ami manhood's dreams are mine;
Tel I long lor Hie the by-gone hoars,
As 1 sit 'nonth this Turkish Tine.
Oh ! wruatho your blossoms about me.
And sootho my aching breast;
Whilo gooseberry plaintivoly warble
And lulls mo into rest.
All tlio girls who wan leaving school
carried With than anticipations of a gay
winter, a round of parties, balls and
operas. Not so with Madeline Delanney.
The 'Iving will of her father made her
aunt's house her home, for tho years
between eighteen and twenty-one, and
if Madeline had been unwilling to com
ply she would still have gone, so great
was her respect for her father's memory.
Mrs. Chat hard was an invalid and her
family consisted only of her son- a man
over thirty and said to be eccentric
and the old family servants. Decidedly,
not a very brilliant prospect for Made
line. It was a sullen autumn day when
Madeline rode, for tho fst time, up
tho avenue leading to her aunt's house.
She saw a gray sky, flying clouds, and a
white beach on which tho sea beat
heavily in, and standing in the midst of
a cluster of pines was a low, massive
building, that might have been a prison,
and possibly was a house. No one came
to the door to welcome her. Mrs. Chat
hard was in the library, and begged that
Madeline Would come to her there. She
found her lying on the sofa, busy with
some sort of knitting - a sallow, delicate,
"No," she said, shrinking back, as
Madeline showed a disposition to kiss
her ; " no one but Frederic has kissed
mo for years. Don't commence. I am
ii creature of habit; I don't like to be
disturbed in any of my regular habits. I
only come down to-day on your account,
and it has quite unnerved me. I shall
not try again. 1 must have perfect re
pose. Frederic comes to see mo morn
ing and evening ; that is as much as I
With that, Madeline was waved off to
her room, where indignation supplanted
a strong desire to cry, and curiosity
gradually got the better of both. It was
reality, she decided, on looking about
her, n pleasant room, with orimuon cur
tains and furniture and a deep window
looking out on tho sea. There was a
bureau, with a great many little draw
ers, and she pleased herself with arrang
ing them mentally. There was a vase
of flowers that spoke of a conservatory ;
she hud seen that the library was well
tilled ; a pretty piano occupied a recess
in her room.
"I shall pass my time very tolerably,"
thought Madeline, resignedly. "1 won
der what my oousin is like."
Perhaps this last thought had some
influence in her toilet, else why should
she have braided her hair and put on
her most becoming dress? It was hard
ly to be supposed that her charms would
have much effect On the quiet parlor
maid who alone was in attendance.
Madeline ate her supper with curling
lip and a stormy brow.
"He is a barbarian! I know I shall
hate him I" was her inward comment.
" He must have known that 1 would be
here. He slight have been civil. How
ever, I shall do rerj Well without him."
And getting a book from the library
shelves, she sat herself down resolutely
to read. Hut try as she would, her
thoughts wandered back to the pleasant
room where she used to sit with her girl
friends, reading and talking, so different
from this great, silent, handsome house.
I am afraid the contrast was not too
favorable, for her pillow was wet with
tours that night.
A week passed away. During that
time Madeline saw Mrs. ('halliard once
--that was all. The rest of the time she
passed in solitude, till Saturday evening,
when the iiiuo eM liouwkt,tlj)(T(,llti'l'"tl
the parlor where Madeline was sitting,
work-basket in hand.
"Mr. Frederic is at home," said slip,
" and Mrs. Chathard thinks it proper
that I should sit in the room ;" with
which explanation she walked over to
tho extreme end of the apartment and
vanished behind the curtains of the bay
Madeline curled her lip slightly at
these prudential preparations, and went
on with her reading, trying to convince
herself that her heart was not beating
fast. She heard a quick, masculine step
without in the hull, heard it come in the
room and advance towards her, but did
not raise her eyes till ho stood directly
before her. She had hard work to re
press her surprise, he was so little like
what she had imagined. Not old for
if he was really thirty, he by no means
looked his age not tall, thin and sal
low ; on the contrary, small, though
well formed, with an abundance of hair;
large blue eyes that should have be
longed to a woman, so evenly arched
were the brows, so long were the lashes,
so soft, so almost suffering, their ex
pression ; clear-cut features ; teeth that
showed white and oven through his
thick moustache; a gentle, quiet, as
sured manner, neither austere norfrown
ish, as Madeline had imagined, but that
of a gentleman and a man of the world.
He opologized easily enough for the
apparent incivility: "Important busi
ness," that much-endured scapegoat, had
detained him ho was extremely sorry.
Hut Madeline, who had no patience
with his lauic excuses, interrupted him
"Pray, spare your regrets, it is quite
evident thatyoursorrow isof the deepest
dye. Your countenance bespeaks it."
Mr. Frederic opened his eyos wide and
sat down. Hitherto he had seemed un
decided on tho question.
"So, then, you are really offended, and
show it after a spirited fashion. Good.
I shall have to make my peace. It will
give us something to talk about."
"Is there really any necessity for talk
ing at all?" demanded Madeline, still
"A few minutes ago I thought not. I
intended to have gone through the ne
cessary formalities, and after that to
havo sat occasionallywith you, by way
of keeping you in countenance; but now
I say yes! There is something original
about you; it may be only a spark, a
glimmer; but whatever it is, I will do
ve lope it."
"Von leave my individuality out of ac
count, I think."
"Not in the least. I count on it for
"Amusement! Wo share the same
blood, Mr. Chathard. 1 think you should
know something of the will which is
among our heirlooms. I doubt if 1 shall
choose to servo even a Chathard as
"You will have no choice. You will
go to church with me to-morrow, You
will see and be seen of all the magnates.
They will forthwith call upon you; you
will go to make a round of dreary visits;
you will go to solemn tea drinkings; you
will talk to Captain Fan way and Sir
Peter Farquhar, the two eligible of tho
parish; and when you have talked over
the weather, you will begin to fidget
and wish yourself homo with mo. Even
a bear like me will prove more endur
able than those unmitigated young men.
You will talk with me, and in the nature
of things, you will amuse me. You can
not help yourself."
"I have other resources," answered
Madeline, loftily. "I have arranged a
dramatic course of study."
Mr. Chathard laughed.
"Try it, my dear cousin, by all means,
It is tho most enchanting thing in the
World- i" prospect. Try it, I say again;
and remember, I shall be very happy to
aid you if any difficulty occurs -which,
though it is to be presumed, is not pos
sible." With which he took himself off, leav
ing Madeline, piqued and curious. She
had ample time, however, to recover her
self and proceed with her studies. It
was three mortal weeks before he pre
sented himself again. When ho did
come it was in a ghostly fashion. Sho
was bending over a book and looking
weary and strangely dissatistied. He
gave her a chair near him.
"Talk!" ho said imperatively. "Iain
Madeline's hot blood leaped up in re
volt. Wordl hovered on her lips that,
cool as he was, could not but have placed
an effectual barrier between them.
Something arrested them. A pained
look was in his eye, anguish about his
mouth, showingdimly through the mask
of cynicism. A new impulse possessed
"Cousin,'" sho said, gently enough,
"why should we be at war? We are of
the same blood, and 1 think we are alike
in one thing at least - that we KM both
ah me. Why, goad each other with bit
tor words? Would it not be better to
help each other? I don't ask nor offer
any confidence; only if there could bo a
liking, and a friendship between us, let
it develop itself, U us, not hinder it,
I am so lonely; and I think, if you
would let me, that I should like you."
"I swore once," he said never to trust
mankind, still less womankind, again."
"Unsay tho rash oath," she said
eagerly. "It shuts you from all happi
ness and goodness."
"How dare you ask mo? In whom
shall I trust?'
"A girl a child, that doesn't know
even the meaning of things about hor,
much less her own heart?"
"I know one thing ; the truth that 1
feel within me. That never dies, and
never fails. Only try me, cousin. I
long to do you good."
"I believe you do," he said, much
softened. "I believe, with all of my in
nocent fervor, you do wish it. I will
trust till I see that you, too, are going
to deceive me. Will you take the re
sponsibility?" Madeline held out her hand, and so
there was a truce between them. Every
night they studied and talked under the
supervision of the prim housekeeper,
and at last he fell into a way of taking a
morning walk with her in the garden and
riding with her to several parties add
always to church, and the neighborhood
held iii its hands in astonishment.
Months parsed away. Yery peaceful,
happy ones they were. But one evening
ho failed to make his appearance. All
the next day Madeline watched for him,
but in vain.
"He had gone away," she thought,
with a keen pang, "and did not tell me."
One week passed two three. Sus
pense giew unendurable. Sho ventured
an inquiry of tho prim housekeeper.
"Mr. Frederic is not far away he's is
"111! Why was I uot told? I will go
and see him at once !" s
"He has the typhus fever, Miss; and
Mrs. Chathard ordered that you should
on no account bo admitted, for fear of
Madeline left the housekeeper with
out another word, and went straight to
Frederic's room. She was not very sure
of its locality; for it Mas in the other
wing of the house, a place where she had
never ventured. She was, however, ex
ceedingly doubtful jf tho propriety of
going in at all; but if ho should dio with
out her, would propriety consolo her?
She went in trembling. He was alono
and awake. Ho turned towards her,
hollow, reproachful eyes.
"Are you better?" was the first ques
tion. "Yes; but why have you loft me alone
so long? I thought that you cared for
"I do, I do. I nover knew. I waited
and wondered, and grow sick at heart.
No one told me, and to-day I asked, I
was too proud to do it before I thought
you had gone Bfway, after the old fashion,
without telling me. Then they said 1
miisn't come to you for feat of the infection."
"There is danger! Go away at once!"
"I will not. Why should I not share
danger with you? All the orders in the
world shan't drive me from you!"
He turned towards her with sudden
animation, seizing her hand, looked
earnestly into her face, and said: "My
little darling, I really beliovo that you
lovo me as I do you!"
And from that moment ho mended,
spite of doctor's physic, and the sombre
old house is gay enough under the blithe
supervision of the young mistress, Mrs.
Frederic Chathard, or Madeline.
At one time, poisoning was largely
practised in Italy. The most celebrated
of the Italian poisoners were two women
named La Spaza and Tophania, who
were both executed. Tho lattor con
fessed that she had been instrumental
in poisoning six hundred people, during
a life of seventy years. Her poison was
colorless and tasteless, and could not
be detected. It was put up in phials
and labelled by her "Manna of St.
Nicholas," though it was usually known
by her own name as Agna Tophania. So
common a thing did poisoning become,
that fashionable ladies kept bottles of
this fatal water upon their dressing ta
bles, as they would lavender -water. By
regulating tho close victims could be
despatched in a week, a fortnight, a
month, or a longer period, as suited the
plans of the poisoners. In England
seventeen persons were poisoned by
Rouse, the Bishop of Rochester's cook.
Madame de Brinvilliers, a young and
beautiful Frenchwoman of most engag
ing maimers, ran a distinguished career
as a slow poisoner. By the advice of
her husband, she leagued with a poison
er by the namo of Saint Croix, to de
spatch her father and brothers, that she
might inherit their property. Tho fel
lowship of crime inspired hor with a
guilty passion for her accomplice, and
sho afterward sought to poison her hus
band that she might marry Saint Croix.
But the hitter had no fancy to form a
closer connection with this wicked
woman, and, by the secret administra
tion of antidotes, prevented the hus
band's death. She was at length detected
in her practises and perished on the
lion iIh Coon I'rraldril.
Once iq 'on a time there was a general
assemblage of fowls and animals, called
together to discuss tho question of re
from. The Tiger shed tears over the
wickedness of the Babbit, the Hyena
wept at the rapacity of the Vultures, and
the Wild Cat pressed his paws to his
aching heart and sighed over the vil
lainies perpetrated by the Hats and Mice.
A venerable old Coon was made chair
man of the mee'ing, and after clearing
his voice he bogan :
"My friends, there is great need of re
form. We are drifting down to perdi
tion at racehorse sjieed. Speak, brothers,
speuk, and let us have a full and flunk
"I am for reform," said tho Tiger as
he rose up. "1 see the (Toons out every
night, stealing corn and raising old Ned
generally, and I hope they may lie
brought to see the error of their ways."
"Reform is my watchword," began the
Buffalo as he secured the floor, "and I
hope the Tigers will commence the good
work in their midst. The Tiger who
just addressed you has the blood of my
slain calf still on his lips."
"It is my opinion," began a veteran
old Hyena, "that reform is most needed
among the vultures. They have become
so bold that I hardly stand a show now
adays to find a carcass for myself."
"And since men have taken to carry
ing guns and swords I hesitate to attack
them." said a Wolf. "I move yon, Mr.
Chairman, that it is tho sense of this
meeting that men no longer go armed."
"Hear what T have to say," pleaded
the Wild Cat. "1 move that the Panther
be censured for eating flesh."
"And my friend the Cow should be
forced to let grass alone," observed an
"In order to get the sense of the meet
ing 1 move that we no longer eat flesh,"
observed a Deer.
"I move to amend by substituting the
word 'grass,'" promptly responded a
Amendments and resolutions were
coming in like the Pacific Express, when
the old Coon in the chair called for or
der and said :
"My friends, let us begin our reform
by routing out the Serpents."
"No! no!" protested a Fox, "I lease
my cave to a family of Serpents at ex
cellent cash figures. Let's drive the
Worms out of the country."
"But we feed on Worms," chirped a
hundred Birds. "Drive them out and
Thus they continued, each one anxious
to preserve whatever was good for him
self and sacrifice whatever was good jfor
his neighbor, until the Coon cut the dis
cussion short by saying:
"Order! Order! Now, then, any bird
or fowl who is willing to begin this re
form campaign by sacrificing personal
gains please stand up."
Everything continued to sit.
"Well, then, any one willing to begin
the reform at home and under his own
hat please stand up."
No ono stood up.
"I think we have bitten oil' more than
we can chew," said the Coon as he laid
down his gavel. "This is a very wicked
world, and there is jroot need of reform,
but when Tigers set out to reform
Hyenas and Wild Cats find fault with
the doings of Wolves it's time to dismiss
Charity may begin next door, but
reform should commence at home.
Florida Ship ( anal.
A dispatch from Philadelphia says:
"Now that the Philadelphia capitalists,
vt ho are about to reclaim the immense
tracts of land in the state of Florida,
known as the "Everglades." have com
pleted their contract with that state, it
is no longer a secret that one of the
main features of the gigantic scheme is
the building of a whip canal across the
state of Florida. This project almost
equals in Importance that of reclaiming
the twelve million acres of tho richest
land in the world, south of the frost
belt. A ship canal across tho state of
Florida has been tho dream of engineers
for many years. It would not onlv
shorten the distance between the Ameri
can ports on the Atlantic coast and all
European ports to New Orleans, Mobile
and all shipping points on tho Gulf of
Mexico, but it would avoid the dangers
to navigation which are experienced on
the countless keys and coral reefs off
the Southern and Southwestern coast of
Florida. All ship captains know of this
danger, which is often aggravated by
hurricanes, which are common to the
southward of Florida, but which are
comparatively unknown on the west
coast, in the region of Tampa Bay. It
is well known that a number of New
York capitalists havo been endeavoring
for some years to get a charter from the
state of Florida to build a ship canal,
but the Philadelphia company, with a
great deal of shrewdness, have got ahead
ofthein. In connection with the Pana
ma Canal, now in the course of construc
tion, the Florida canal must a, once at
tract the attention of the eapalists, not
only of America but of Furopn.

A Had Elephant.
Few showmen, says aNew York letter,
envy the Canadians who bought Eiiijhs
ror at Itanium's sale a few months ago,
and predictions are made that the vicious
brute will raiso mischief before he gets
through the season in Canada. It has
been about a year since Emperor travel
ed. His nature is so treacherous and
his temper so violent that the keepers
dread to have him around, and he was
lent to the Central park collection. He
was kept chained up after he went to the
park, but even then he made vicious
lunges at people and came near killing'
a keeper. S'ljierintendent Conklin had
o great iron cage made, anil Emperor
ivas put in that. The cage had no bot
tom, and one day Fmperor rushed ot a
man at whom he was offended, and car
rying the cage along with him pinned
the man against the partition. Long
iron rods now rivet the cage pat to the
stone floor, and Emperor's capacity for
mischief is very limited. For several
months Enqieror has been on his good
behavior. His head droops meekly, and
no trace of viciousness can be seen in his
mild, blinking eves. The keeers won
der what he is going to do next, and do
not abate in their wariness.
Mr. Conklin had Emperor out for an
airing two or three times during winter.
The neighborhood of the menagerie was
first cleared of visitors, and then the old
fellow was led around the buildings
with a chain. He showed no emotion of
any kind at this glimpse of freedom.
The question of a keeper for the com
ing season was at first a perplexing one
to Emperor's purchasers. Old keepers
all over the country know the beast by-
sad experience or reputation, and have
declined, with thanks, proffers of situa
"Don't touch that elephant; he'll kill
the whole of you," wrote ono man. "He
broke my arm and collar-bone in HS7o,
and I don't want anything to do with
him." One writer was earnest in his
appeal to the owners not to trust Em
peror under any circumstances. Other
keepers had reminiscences of fractured
ribs and legs to relate in explanation of
their declinations. An experienced
keeper has been engaged, however, and
by some it is believed that Emperor's
fit of sulks is over, and that ho will be
a good elephant all summer.
Vengeance Upon a Mule.
Old Silas was a very revengeful man.
Now, Silas owned a mule, and one day
the mule raised his hind legs and smote
Silas, whereupon the old man sat upon
tho barn floor and wept. Suddenly he
smiled, and seizing a grain sack he filled
it with sand and rocks, and tied a leather
apron around it. Then he hung it down
from the beam right behind the mule.
A shudder passed over the animal, but
he nerved himself and let fly. Ho sent
the bag to the roof, but the recoil struck
him with surprise, not only once but
two orrthree times. The mule was as
tonished, shocked! He wasn't used to
being kicked back. Old Silas laughed
until tears ran down his cheeks. The
mule kicked again and the bag kicked
back. They kept up the contest all day,
and towards evening the mule showed
signs of weakening, but old Silas was
not satisfied yet. Ho went to bed, and
during the night ho heard tho mule
braying for mercy, but his heart was
hardened. When ho went to the stable
in the morning the sand bag was as
fresh as over, but the mule had laid
down in despair and was dead died of
a broken heart.
A Change of Climate.
Scientific, men say that the mild cli
mate of England and Franoe is due to
the heated waters of the Gulf Stream,
which add several degrees to the average
temperature, compared with the same
latitudes on the eastern shore of Amer
ica. If the eourso of the Gulf Stream
should be changed, so tho scientists
say, these countries would have long
and dreary winters. They enforce their
theory by a reference to Greenland.
The climate of this country was once
mild, its summers delightful, and its
surface covered with a rich verdure,
from which its name was derived. But
it is now covered by huge glaciers, and
is almost uninhabitable.
The change, they think, has been oc
casioned by a ehango in the current of
tho Gulf Stream. It once flowed near
tho coast, aud diffused a genial Warmth,
But by tho formation of tho coral
reofs on the Florida shores, the waters
of the Gulf Stream were deflected from
tho Greenland coast, and its climate be
came arctic. A similar change may hap
pen to England from a similar cause.

Vigoritc Company of California, was re
cently tested near Sun Francisco to show
its superior power and the entire safety
with which it eon bo used. A cartridge,

"Doan' bo too good," said the old man,
as he crossed his hands under his coat-
tails. "I advise you to be good, but not
goody-good. When a man reaches a
sartin line of goodness ho will have de
-expect an' esteem of all who meet him ;
orfuns will hless him an' widders will
pray for him. When he crosses ober
dat line ho will pray fur de poo' wid one
hand an' lend money at fifteen per cent,
wid do odder, Ho will shed tears fur
his naybur's woes, but leave six inches of
snow on his sidewalk fur de public to
wade frow. His chin will ipiiver when
he speaks of de poo' heathen in Africa,
but his own boys will play haso ball in
do alley on Sunday. Ho will wee)) ober
de need of more orfun asylums, but he
won't put down a shillin' in money. He
will talk charity by de hour, and charge
a boy ilfty cents for breakiu' a two shil
lin' pane of glass. 1 doan' want QUffln1
to do wid a too good man. When I know
a man to bo wicked I know how to lulie
him. When 1 know him to bo a goody
goody man my only safety am to lethiin
alone. When you meet a man who am
distressed ober de gineral wickedness of
de world doan' you lend him any money
widout good security. When you meet
a man who says 'uh' an' 'urn,' an' rubs
his hands together an' rolls up his eyes,
doan' challenge him to trade horses,
Find me a man who weeps hokaso do
world hain't better an' 1 show you a man
who makes his own homo unliappy.
Scent of Dogs.
Dogs not only smell odors in nn occa
sional way, but they likewise seem to
extract a recognizable odor from almost
everything, as Prof, ('loom ifobertson
also suggests. Anacharsis knows mo
when I am dressed in clothes ho nover
saw before, by his noso alone. Lot mo
get myself up in a theatrical costume
and cover my face with a mask, yet ho
will reeogiu.e meat once by some, to us
ondiaooverablu perfume. Moreover, ho
will recognize the .same odor as clinging
to my clothes after they have been taken
off, If I shy a pebble on tfie beAph ho
can pick out that identical pebblo by
scent amongst a thousand others. Fven
the very ground on which I have trod
den retains for him some faint memento
of my presence for hours afterward. Tho
blood-hound can track a human scent
a week old, which argues a delicacy of
nose almost incredible to human nos
trils. Similarly, too, if you watch Ana
eharis at this moment you will see that
ho runs up and down the path, sniffing
away at every slick, atone and plant, as
though he got a separate distinguishable
scent out of every one of them. And so
he must, ao doubt; (ot if even the earlh
keeps a perfume of the person who has
walked over it hours before, surely every
object about us must have some faint
smell or other, either of itself or of ob
jects which have touched it. W hen wo
remember that a single grain of mnak
will scent hundreds of handkerchiefs so
as to be recognizable oven by our defec
tive organs of smell, then' is nothing ex
travagant in the idea that panting crea
tures may leave traces, discoverable by
keener senses, on all the pebbles and
straws which lie across the road. Thus
the smells which make up half of the
dog's pjcturo of the universe are prob
ably just as continuous and distinct as
tho sights which make up the whole
picture in our own case, aud which
doubtless coalesce with the other half
iu the canine mind, larjur'n IC'rVv.
