The late August days had come, with
their gorgeous hues of sea and sky, nnd on
the ftl&rnoon of one of them Arthur Mid

She had waited more than an hour for

for the errand must be done, with or with,
out him. Every one knows how it tire.
one to wait as she waited that hour, with
her eyes and ears on the alert, nnd her
heart alternately leaping as he fancied t-he
heard his step and then dropping down
like lead in her bosom. Nor was ft much
better when she beirau her reluctant pro
gress toward the village. A hundred times i
she stopped and listened, nnd thought, "Per- j

with n heavy basket on her arm she turned
homeward. She was in that state of feel.
iii2 when it seems a relief to add outward
annoyance aud even pain to one's inward 1

the few remaining steps and entered the .

Bhe did not stop to think, but ran up tho .

She knew his writing very well. She sal

written, but it was a long time before she
moved or raised her head. In truth, she
was Hlmost stunned ; the weary waiting and
ilisappointment, tho long, lonely walk, had
not tilted her to encouuter the shock of
Arthur's sudden departure But unwitting. .

to prevent her from arriving ot that in. i

So, ns sho pondered liis words, nothing of
their true ineauing dawned on her, and
soon her pain resolved itself into the simple
ache of absence; the idea of this being the
end never occurred to her. Indeed, the

comfort did she draw from them. She bad

That was all ; although the letter was not
short still virtually there was nothing in it
but a great deal of kind feeling and gra
ciousness Arthur had meant indeed when
he w rote this letter to communicate some
definite plan for Meg's future, but he had
counted upon his cousin to construct such
apian; and when lie had once met tier,
somehow the quiet Utile creature who bad
been the only human interest in his Sum
mer was so dwarfed ly her juxtaposition
to this giant feeling of his life, that no
time seemed appropriate, no impulse moved
him to iutroduce her name. Her individu
ality faded almost at onco into a dim,
pleasant memory, and Arthur wus loo
happy to be anything but absorbed und
3leg sat long over the fire after she had
read Arthur's letter through twice. She
did not cry over it, it gave her no violent
emotion or shook; only somehow u3 she
folded it up after the second reading, she
felt a strange, dead feeling come tcr her
something like being extinguished, sho
would have said had she been used to illus.

truth life seemed to taste and look liko

about the grief of a young person or an

nothing of how it was, how it coald not
but be so; she only felt it. She had strayed
along, not even knowing of the existence
of those iron laws that now were griudiug
her soul to powder.
It was all bitterly hard to her. She had
never thought of loving. She had loved,
and tho knowledge that she posses. mil a
capacity to love and sutler came with the
vital agony of feeling her love eradicated
as if by a sharp, keen kuife. and there w as
no way of escape f r her. The narrowness
of her Mile shut her in; she was thrown
back upon herself utterly and entirely. She
was like a caged bird once set free, soaring
once abroad in heaven's light and air. and
then a cruel baud breaks iu wings and it ia
agaiu and forever bound to earth. She lnv'
not known in what n mere dream she hnd
been living till it was shattered. This let
ter seemed to turn llio palace of her imagi
nation into a hut All her old bitterness
came back liko a flood ; tho doors Arthur
had opened to her seemed to shut with a
dull, inexorable sound, and u sullen dark
ness settled down on her soul. She was
too untrained aud untaught to rise above
her pain, else the memory of tho Summer
might havo remained embalmed and pre
cious. No; she turned upon her heart's
garden and trampled down its tender Spring
shoots. Sho might havo known, t-liu said
to herself, that she was not meant to be liko
him, and sho was nothing, had never been
aught to him but an amusement. He bad
crossed the gulf between them, and she had
forgotten that when he once repassed it, it
could never bo bridged over. She would
never think of him again. She was most
miserable. Before she closed her ryes that
night sho had swept away all vestiges of

like a flint toward her old life como back.

Abraham Lincoln's Oratory.
A gentleman who was associated with
Mr. Lincoln in early life, when tusked,
recently, whether in those days wlwn
he practiced law with him he thought
Lincoln to be the great character he af
terward became, replied:
"No, to be frank about it, I did not.
Lincoln was not a student. He would
read the newspapers, but he had very
little book learning. He was not a man
of application, even in the law. He
would practise tho law to support his
lamily and be kept in the line of what
people were talking about; but for learn
ing he seemed to have no great curiosi
ty uor .passion. He allected mo as n
very interesting man on account of his
humor, geniality and pretty general ef
fectiveness before the juries of our State.
In point of fact, the greatest of Lincoln's
qualities was his oratory, by which 1
mean not only the beauty and clearness
with which he expressed himself, but
the remarkable style in which he com
posed his speeches. He belonged to the
type of the orators, and it is as nn orator
that the public must remember him,
even though unconsciously. A certain
turn be gave to his enunciations touched
both tho intellect and heart. There ho
was master. As a story-teller, ho was
decidedly tho best I ever knew, and that
was a, great faculty through Illinois."
Condition of a utaliion for the
The stallion requires regular exoreisft
for several weeks before ho stands for
mares. The soft, relaxed muscles, from
indolence or improper exercise, and the
obstruction of tho organs of locomo
tiiii, from over-loaded flesh, arc nnfitto
be entailed, and will produce nothing of
nny value. The art of conditioning the
stallion for the stud consists in suitable
exercise, to Harden tho muscles, sweat
ing out the surplus fat, to clear tho
wind, rubbing down the pores of fho
skin, so that the insensible perspiration
will improve the health, and cleansing
out the whole system, so as to prepare
for the free circulation of the blood that
stimulates tho organs of locomotion.
The stallion is generally pamnc.rcd in
" lioness, which destroys his ambition;
vcrloaded with flesh, which obstructs
his action, and oveilasked in tho stud,
which causes him to get lank, leggy, ill
formed, worthless coin. To avoid ihc-e
degenerating effects, the sire must bo

ple, when escaping from a house en
lire, or plunging inlo cold water to savo
life, the e fleets of "chill" are seldom ex
perienced. This alone should servo to
suggest that tho inllueiico exerted by
cold falls on the nervous ystem. The
immediate effects of a displacement of
i blood from the surface and itsdetcrmin-
! ation to the external organs are not, as
was once supposed, sufficient to pro-
; dueo tho sort of congestion that issues in
Inflammation. If it were so, nn inflam
matory condition would be the com-
, mon characteristic of our bodily state.
, hen the vascular system is healthy,
; and that part of tho nervous apparatus
I by which tho caliber of tho vessels is
, controlled performs its proper functions
normally, tiny disturbance of equilib.
' riuin iu the circulatory system wisieh
may be produced bv external cold will
bo quickly adjusted. It is, therefore,
on tho state of the nervous svstem that
: ever) thing depends, and it' Is, as wo
.' havo sni i, on the nervous system tho
stress of it chill" falls. CoiiKciou.mii'ss
is ono idement in tho production of a
cold, and,, when that is wanting, tho
phenomenon is not very likely to ensue.
II is in this way that persons who tlo
not cultivate the feHr of cold-cntching
are not. ns a rule, subject to this inflic
tion. This is one reason why the habit
of wrapping tip tends to create a mor
bid susceptibility. The mind, by its
feiir-bcgctllng precaution, koeps tho
nervous system on the alert for Impros
sioiiH of cold, tind the centers are, so to
say, punlo-striekcn when even a slight
sensation occurs. ' Cold applied to the
surface, even iu the form of n gentle
current of nlr somewhat lower In torn
peraturo than thu skin, will produuo tho
feeling" of "chill.", Conversely , it
thought will often give rise, to tho "feel
lng" of cthl appliua to tho surfueo for
example, of "cold water running down
the buck." Many of tho twtisutions of
cold or hcht which tiro experienced by
the hypersensitive havo no external
causes They tiro purely Ideational hj
their origination und ideal In fact
