1 nissyon my darling, my darling,
''he.eiqers burn low on the hearth;
A d stilled is the stir of the household,
And hushed is the voice of Its mirth;
'Ihe rain plashes fast- on the terrace,
The winds past the lattices moan;
The, midnight chimes out from the
And I am alone.,
I want you, my larling, my darling;
I am tired with care and with fIer;
I would 'nestle in sileh6e beside you,
And all but presence forget,
In the husl of the happiness given
To those, who through trusting have
To the fiilness of love in contentment.
But I ath alone.
I call you, jny darling. my darling.
My voice echoes back on my heart;
I stretch my arin to you longing,
And lo! they fall empty, apart.
I whisper the sweet words you taught
The winds that we only have known,
Till the blank of the durmb air is bitter,
For I am alone.
I need you, my darling, my darling,
With its yearningC my very heart
The load that divides us weighs harder;
I shrink from the jar that it makes.
Old sorrows rise uip to beset me;
Old doubts make my spirit their own.
Oh, come through thle darkness and
For I am alone.
OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
June 20th, 1884.
"I declare there's about half a
wagon load of dust and old paper,"
said one of the Attendants of the
House the other evening, as he
threw. himself back in one of the
chairs and contemplated the rows
of empty seats. "Some of the
members are awfully disorderly.
Underneath their desks is piled up
in disorderly heaps huge masses
of bills, books, records,.old papers
and what not. Some of the desks
are fearful to contemplate. But
inside it's worse. Lift up the lids
and it is as if a pile of promiscu
ous papers had been (dumped in
for the rats to make nests of. And
then the floor ! It is covered with
scraps of paper, old bills and cigar
"Some of the mernhers, howvev
er," he a4ded, his eyes resting on
two seats on the repuiblcan side.
"Some members are very neat and
For instance, 1*. Kean, of New
.Jersey, and~ Mr. William Walter
Ph'elps. They are two of the neat
est men in the. House. They oc
cupy those two seats, and.yo n ev
er see a scrap of paper or any lit
ter anywhere about them. Kasson
is very neat too, and so is Morris
on. Randall never leaves any pa
pers in his desk at all, lHe leaves
it clear of everything, doing all
hiss writing and the like in his
cominittee room. A bout the only
other men who are r4markably or
.darly about their desks am'e Har

worse, and Townsend and Le
Fevre are about eyen with him.
These, together with Belford, M
ler, of Pennsylvania, Firheton and
Van. aton, are the most distin
guished advocates of disorder,
their desks all being in sucih a
condition that they can't find any
thing in them.
"Rankin, Belmont and Muldrow
never sit in their own seats, while,
on the contrary, E. B. Taylor, Barr
and Mutchler are to be. found at
theirs almost all the time. Kel
Jogg and Belmont are not general
ly to be found anywhere about the
Capitol. Kelley is generally at
his desk or in the ways and means
committee room, and is very order
ly, always fussing with the page
for not being prompt and neat
enough. Morrison divides his
time equally between his disk and
the.ways and means committee
room, Randall is at his desk only
when there is something before
the House that requires his atten
tion, which happens very frequent
ly, but at other times is hard at
work in his committee room exam
ining bills or attending to his ex
tensive correspondence. Hol
man and McMillan are at their
desks nearly all the time. - -'Yes,
its kind of curious to watch the
peculiarities of all the members,
but all here, together with their
papers and cigars, they make a ter
rible litter before night."
The joint commission to arrange
for the ceremonies to be author
ized upon the completion of the
Washington monument met this
morning and organized by electing
Senator Sherman, Chairman, Mr.
E. J. Babcock, secretary, and Mr.
F. L. Harvey, assistant secretary.
A committee of five was appointed
to take charge of the preliminary
works of the commission and take
such steps as may be necessary
during the Summer and Autumn.
The committee will report to the
commission next December. It is
proposed to invite the governors
of all the States (who are ex ofl
cio vicc-presidenits of the monu
ment association ),military and ci -
vil organizations and the public at'
large, to take a part in the ceremo
nies. Organization dlesiring to
come as such, and making known
their purpose, will be specially in
vited. The invitations will issue
next December. -The dedication
of the monument is to take place;
on the 22nd of next February.
-"Promise me, Elbert,*' said
she, as she fastened a rose in his
buttonhole, "that you will wear
this till it withers and dies." "I
will, indeed," was the "reply ; "I
will wear this rose if I don't wear
anything else.'' Somehow they
both blushed and went their re
