Ob Iarre, that came to me on tightest wing
One dawning morning of the dewy spring.
When the rear's earliest lark awoke to sing;
Oh Lots, that swept aside, as if in jest.
The old companions I had cared for best.
Through all the days of my unbroken rest;
Oh Lore, that took from me the mantle grar.
Which gentle peace had round me wrapped alwaj.
And bade contentment leare my onward way ;
Oh Lore, that decked me in the loreliness
Of an intense ethereal happiness.
And bade it henceforth be my daily dress ;
Oh Lore, that sent through all my tingling frame
A glowing warmth I knew not how to name,
Which burnt upon my cheek in crimson flame ;
Oh Lore, my strong and overflowing heart.
Which bore throughout that day so proud a part,
BelieTed how beautiful a thing thou art.
Oh Lore, that left me on a wintry day.
When earth in an enshrouding whiteness lay.
And all the sunless face of heaven was gray ;
Oh Love, that snatched from me my glorious dref s,
not eared tbst in my naked loneliness
I found no refuge from my deep distress ;
Oh Love, that looked upon me standing there,
My hopes as gray, and all my life as bare
As sky and earth, above, around me were;
Oh Love, that flying never turned thy head,
Nor marked one tear of all the many shed
For the departed, for oontentment dead ;
Oh Love, that found me peacefully secure,
That gave me riches which might not endure,
And left me so immeasurably poor;
Oh Love, my feeble and all empty heart
Which bore throughout that day so ssd a part.
Snows what an awful thing thou wert and art. -AU
The Year Bound.
One rainy night, about half -past eight
o'clock, the train had dashed into Mc
Kibben'. Corners, and the mail had
been delivered at the store and Poat
offioe. John Fairiohn. the Postmaster, had
opened the bag and counted the letters.
There -were, as he made out, just ten,
and one was larger than the others, and
had a red seal ; and then he had found
that he had left his glasses on the news
paper in the back room, and without his
glasses he could not read a line ; and so,
of course, he had gone after them, re

"I'll see ;" said Mr. Fairjohn.
He turned to the little pile of envel

a deck of cards.
"Why, there's only nine," he said.

ten, and I thought one had a red seal, I

Just at thu moment the door of the
storo opened, and there entered at it a
little woman dressed in a cheap calico
and wrapped in a thin and faded shawl.
She looked timidly about the store,
still more timidly at the heap of letters,
. and then, in an appealing voice like that
of a frightened child, said :
' 'Mr. Fairjohn, is there any letter for
me this time i
The Postmaster, who was a little deaf,
had turned his head away and did not
know that she had entered, and she came
closer to the counter and the light upon
it before she spoke again. She was

signs of grief written upon it, but she
was neither old nor ugly yet, and there
was sometning in tne damp curls cluster

child-like even yet.
"Is there a letter for me this time,
Mr. Fairjohn ?" she said again ; and this
time the Postmaster looked up.
No, there ain't ; and you're a fool
for taking such a walk to ask," said he,
with rough kindness. "Wonldnt

herself. It was one she should have
been used to, and now the absuroity of
it seemed to strike her for tue hrst time
in all these years.
" They laugh at me," she muttered to
herself. " I know thoy laugh at me.
Perhaps I am mad; but they don't know
what love is. Charlie wouldn't have left
me like that. If he had died he would
have given me some sign; and yet yot,
if he were alive, it would be stranger
still. No, no; they are right I am
wrong. He must be dead."
And as though the news had just been
whispered to her, she clasped her hands
to her forehead, gave a cry, and sank
down on her knees in the road.
She knelt there a few momenta and
then arose. In this interval the wind
had blown the clouds from the sky, and
the moonlight lay white upon the path,
and lit her on her way to her poor home
There at the door sat a man, a strong,
determined-looking follow, who arose as
she approached and held out his hand.
" Here you come," he said, " tired to
death, worn out, still on that fruitless
errand. Jessie Lester can't you give up
this nonsense and think of the living a
little. Think of mo, Jessie, for just half
" I do think of you," she said. " I
am very sorry yon should be so good to
me when I must seem so bad to you."
Then she sat down on the porch and
took her little hood off, and leaned her
head wearily against the wall of the
house ; and the man arose and crossed
over, and sat down beside her.
" Give it a softer resting place, Jes-
he said, " here on my heart.
She looked out into the night, not at
him, as she spoke :
"Job," she said, "I begin to think
you are right, that he went down in the
Sphynx with the rest ten years ago. But
what good would I do yon ? What do
you want to marry me for ?"
The man drew closer still as ho an

I've been crazy nil this time, and if you
want me you may have me. It's very
good of yon to love me so.
And thus it seemed to have ended,
that ten years' watching and waiting, and
there was triumph in Job's eyes as he
turned away and left her with his hrst
kiss upon her lips. But at the end of
the green gate he paused and looked
" I told her the truth, he said,
when I said that when a man loved a

And then he drew from his breast a

looked at it for, a moment, and hid it

instead of the shadow.
And now, as we said, it was night and
a wetter one than that other later, too,
for Mr. Fairiohn had closed the store,
and was compounding himself what he
called a " night-cap of some fragrant

She made no answer, but only tossed
the letters over in her lap, and said:
" I seemed to know it had a red seal.
And as she spoke, old Fairjohn, glanc

saw it grow darker; saw it enter and,
starting up on his defence, if need be,
recognized Job Roper.
He was very pale, and ho took no
notice of Fairjohn, but crossing the

Highest Mountain in the World.
For many years past Mount Everest,
in that portion of the great Himalaya
i.i ii. . i i . t
range wnicn occupies me western pan. oi
the strange kingdom of NepauL, immedi
ately north of .India, has been regarded
as the highest mountain in the world.
It is known to the Nepanleee as Gauris
ankar, but the English named it Everest,
in honor of a distinguished officer in the
British TmKiin topographical survey.
Its snow-capped summit is 28,002 feet, or
nearly five miles and a half above the
level of the sea. Of course no one has
ever ascended it to this height, but its
altitude, like that of the other lofty peaks
of the Himalaya, was ascertained by
triangulation ; and until the present time
it has not been supposed that any higher
land existed on the earth.
If the news be true, however, which
has lately come to us from the more dis
tant East, there is a loftier peak than
Mount Everest in tho great island of
Papua, or New Guinea. This vast re
gion, extensive enough to form six States
as large as New York, is as yet almost
wholly unexplored, except along its
coasts. Lvincr close to the eouator.
where the Indian ocean and the Pacific
meet, it is the home of the casso
wary and the bird of paradise, a country
grand in its scenery, rich in its vegeta

beautiful forms of animal life the ver

the island was made from Torres Strait,

hundred miles inland, and about midway
between the north and south coasts dis
covered a mountain 32,783 feet high,
which he named Mount Hercules.
The height of this mountain over six
miles is not the only remarkable thing
about it. Its apparent elevation is but
little less than its actual elevation ; for,
instead of rising from a lofty table-land
like the plateau of Central Asia, it stands
m a comparatively low plain, only about
two thousand feet above the ocean, and
this gives a clear rise of more than
30,000 feet above the surrounding
country. The traveler standing at its
base could look up and see its snowy
peak towering 30,000 feet skyward from
where he stood. Under such circum
stances the altitude of a mountain is

took the ascent, formidable as it ap
peared. He did not reach the top, but
we believe the achievement which he re
lates is unparalleled in the records of
mountaineering. Accompanied by one
servant, he set out from the foot at four
o'clock in the morning. They passed
through dense forests in the hrst two
thousand feet of perpendicular progress,
found the limit of tree growth at eleven
thousand feet, and by nine o'clock had
reached a point fourteen thousand teet
above the sea-level almost as high as
the famous Matterhorn. A thousand
feet higher was the snow line. As they
pressed on, drowsiness began to over
come them. " Nothing was visible but
snow of the most dazzling whiteness.

Stagnation in Business the World
It is poor consolation in adversity to
know that we are not alone in our misery;
such as it is, however, our iron manu
facturers may take it to themselves. The
depression of the iron trado is general
throughout tho world. Tho production
of pig-iron in Scotland was less in 1874
than in any of the hist twenty years. At
one timo there wcro only thirty-two fur
naces blowing, out of 132 erected, and
tho production was 400,000 tons less than
in 1870. Bussia, notwithstanding its
activity in railroad building, imported
only 6,221,0(10 pounds of mils, against
7,119,000 in 1873. In Prussia, the large
steel works of Krupp has discharged
some thousand workmen; and the Borsig
maniifactory of engines at Berli- the
most extensive in Germany lias had to
protect itself by taking a similar step.
Last month the largest Austrian manu
factory of engines, Sigl, dispensed with
2,000 hands, for the reason that it had
neither orders nor sufficient working
capital. The government, however, in
true Austrian lostnon, remedied both
misfortunes by advancing capital to the
works, and by causiotf some of the rail

The Pall Mall Gazette says: " Among
the many agents for the spread of infec
tious diseases are, it seems, our domestic
pets. For the propagation of a fever
dog is sometimes as bad, it not worse,
than a drain, and a case is referred to in
the Sanitary Record in which scarlet
fever was corned from one child to anoth

been reared in a house where scarlatina
prevailed, and was subsequently given
to a friend of the family, Shortly after

so charged with contagions matter as
render it a source of disease and death.
Although it is fair to admit that the
children may have caught the fever from
other sources than his woolly coat, yet
there is reason to fear that both dogs

Grafting of Animal Structures.
Within the last 150 years amateur
perimenters and "surgeons have learned
that every sort oi animal structure
under certain favorablo conditions,
itself to some extent; the skin,
cartilage, nerve, muscle, bono, and even
the teeth. Tho teeth spring from
a little bag or follicle,
whichis the organ of ivory
that for the production of enamel.
When an entire follicle was taken from
a puppy, and grafted into an adult dog,
the germ was regularly developed
the production of a complete tooth.
enamel when grafted alono perished,
while the organ of ivory produced
ivory tooth. These interestintr researches
lead to the hope that teeth may
day be thus restored,' seeing that an
tire organ with a. complete structure
more likely to grow than when it is
a fragment transplanted and isolated,
like a piece of bone.

There was considerable excitement and inter
est shown in the grain markets during the past
week, and at times a decidedly panicky feoung
prevailed, with a general rapid and severe de
cline in values all round. The speculative
element lackei confidence, in the trade, and the
Pressure to sell was urgent and imperative,
he maikets on Monday showed considerable
weakness, but it was not ontil after the close
of 'Change that tho decided downward move
ment set in. Tue lauure oi a large ana promi
nent "long" firm who were operating
heavily was one oi the principal rea
sons of the break, and np to Wednesday
mgnt all tne marKets wore rapidly declining.
The stocks in store are hoaw all round ; there
was no encouragement in the tone of European
or New York advices ; on the other hand these
markets were considerably lower. The weather
was all that could be desired for the srroMnc
crops and rather warm for tho accumulated
grain in storo. The rapid decline in values
was checked on Thursday under a good demand
from shorts, who were buying at tne aeciino,
but again became firm at the close of the week
ana ruled easy.
The following table shows the prices enrront
at me opening and close of tue past wook:

shorn, $3.505.50 for poor to cloice; no wool
ed on sale. ,
An nnnsnally active business was transacted
in this market, and the fluctuations in values
were quite severe The innneaces brought to
bear upon the market were of an unfavorable
tenor, and generally calculated to produce
weakness. Eastern and foreicn advices Gen
erally reported weaker markets, and this caused
an increased desire to sen tor inture delivery,
and as buyers in view of these quotations were
only willing to make moderate purchases the
market ruled weak. It was not until consider
able of a declino had been established that
buvers could be induced to take hold
with freedom, and then the movement
was quite brisk. The stock of mess pork and
lard are fair, while the amount of winter
cured meats is rather light. I' rices, as com
pared with the current ngures of a week ago,
have declined abont il.00(1.25 on mess
pork, lc per lb on lard, and on all de
scriptions of meats. The market closed steady
at ilO.TolVrl'J.&u per brl for mess pork spot, and
lu.73 seller June, uasu lard closed quiet ana
firm at $14.30; seller June steady at $U.25
14.30, and seller July closed firm at $14.55.
SEEDS AND HIGHWINES.
The movement in the seed market was oidy
fair during the weak, but a firm feeling pro
vailed through, and former prices were main
tained. The season, during which tho prin
cipal speculation is reported is transacted, is
about over and the transactions that are now
being consummated are almost entirely on
shipping account. Sales of timothy ranged at
$2.25(g;2.50 for common to prime. Clover
quotable at G.4Q(w6.58 for prime xnodium.
Flax sold at l.G0(a l.65 for good crushing.
Sales of Hungarian ranged at ?1.40(al.50 for
good to prime, and millet sold at $1.501.55.
A few light sales of buckwheat were made at
1.151.20 for prime. Buyers and sellers of
highwines were somewhat apart in their views
and the market ruled rather quiet The market
closed dull and nominal at l.lKgl.lS.
The arrivals during the week were quite lib
eral, but the demand was of a high local order,
and the market ruled rather dull ltoceivers,
in anticipation of increased arrivals of new
grass made, were generally anxious to keep
their stocks down, and in so doing they wcro
compelled to accopt lower prices. Sliippers
havo reduced then bids on old butter to uciiic,
and some sales were reported at this range.
Fresh made sold chieilv at 20(di23c for firsts,
and the bulk of the roceipts could oidy be
classed as such, while it was difficult to obtain
over 25c for extras, though an occasional pack
age ranged as high as 2te. Dealers anticipate
more liberal receipts, ana were generally anx

The Fallen Obelisk.
There is some chance of the fallen obe
lisk at Alexandria, fellow to the so-called
Cleopatra's Needle, being removed to
England. A gentleman of fortune pro
poses to encct this at his own expense.
The estimates of cost and the supposed
weight of the obelisk aro very various.
The prevailing opinion is that the weight
is about two hundred and eighty tons ;
the cost will be about 10,000. The
method of transport recommended is a
huge raft, as tho conveyance of so cum
bersome a mass would bo very danger
ous in a vessel. It is understood that
his Hichness the Khedive has placed the
obelisk at the disposition of the above
mentioned gentleman, although the
British government had long since de
clined the onerous present and given it
back to me Jiigypuan government.
