LINES WRITTEN BY E.
Thore is no shadow, without a light;
There is no day, but brings a night
Thoro is no joy. unmixed with pain
Thero-i no sunshino, but after rain
There is no ovil, without some good
No beauty, that is. understood,
Tho heaviost crossos, to our sight,
Are but given, to lead us to the light
The darkest clouds, havq a golden odgo,
4 And the fairest gardens, a thorny hed;o
V ome fairest flowers, give poisonous breath ;
And some deadly poisons, save from Doath ;
Each soul, may reach the lowest deops,
Al eoach soul, climb the highest steops
Each heart, may know joy's brightest glow
And each, the anguish of darkest woe
No battles are won, but some have fought;
No work, is dono, but some have wrought;
Cruel words, from the lips,aro carelessly. tossed,
But no kind word was ever lost.
No heart so true, it cannot be tried;
And none so false, but some good will abide;
Tite is none so strong that he cannot fall,
And none so evil but may rise from it all.
No soul 'or dropped in the depths of woo;
But might have climbed to the hills of snow,
The boat of gold is mixed with alloy,
And the coarsest metals have some emp oy;
All things are mado for some good use
And nothing so gool but may I ave abuse
God gives us nothing but will do us good,
And our oursos scm kindness when under
A Shower of Rain.
1) ow nt cane the rain in a pelting merel
At one crossing a miniature lake had
formed several feet in length and breadth,
and tirce or four inches deep; its shores on
very side were nud-black, slippery mud.
It was amusing to see the hurrying pco
ple drenched, chilled, uncomfortable, imi
patient to be home come to a deA. stop at
this one crossing and hesitate, with faces
expressive of disgust and dismay.
What chance had Ethel Thornton's poor
little weary feet, so small, so miserably
clad, in such a slough as this ?
She glanced around despairingly.
And the next moment she found herself
lifted in a pair of strong arms, carried high
and dry over the mud and mire, and set
down on the other side, while the rescuer,
raising his dripping hat, with a pleasant
bow and smile, passed quickly on his way.
She stood whtcre he had placed her as if
turned to stone, following his fast disap
pearing figure with her dark eyes; - her
hands'were clasped convulsively, the coloi
was flaming in her cheeks under her wet
"It was Frank I" she gasped. "It was
Frank himself, and lie held me in his arms
and never knew ic."
A quick sob burst from her lips.- 0 hard

She stooped and picked it up-a large
'Frank's1" she said, quietly and hope
lessly; then she wiped it tenderly with her
handkerchief, pressed it to her lips, and
slipped it into her bosom.
As she did this, she threw her veil aside
for the tears and rain together nearly blind
I doubt if Fi'ank wvouild have recognized
her, even if he had seen her face--it was so
worn and weary looking, and stained by
the wet black veil.

ty, pfjiant, blooming girl whose love ho had
sought so eagerly a year ago; not much in
Iher appearance just, now to tempt any man
to woo her.

She lay there without #p~elking for sdo
time, and thon articulated:

The weak voice rang out clear and strong
-the dark eyes flashed excitedly; she
clasped her hands, while a vivid crimson
suddenly (lied her ciecke.
"O) I remember it all now. Please reach

Then she told her mother her adventure
in the rain, and drew out of the desk

Ethel made no reply.

shook her slender form. Mrs. Thornton

She stooped, and quite broke down In a
stormi of sobs and tears.

she became calmer.

sighing. "Let us find Ihis address andl send

So they opened It ansd examined Its con

At last In an Inner p)ocket they found a
letter, and In it a photograph. Ethel took It

"Mammsa, mamma, look here," and the
poor girl's tremblinig fingers clutched at a
scrap of newspaper that was fluttering to the

Messrs. Lenox amid Perry have for
some ttne been in the mountains at the
head of Magpie, Montana, getting out
timber for a large stable. The moun
tains in the vicinity of Migple were
recently set on fire by a party of pros
pectors, and the fire raged over
quite an extent of country. About
3 o'clocc on the afternoon of the 14th
tilt., Court Sherifr's wagon and team
started down the canyon loaded with
fence poles, and a few minutes later
Leon and Perry followed with a heavy
load of hewn timber. They had got
fairly in the canyon when the wind
suddenly increased to a lively gale, and
before they could realize the extreme
danger of their position the whole
mountain was in flames. PuttIng
whip to their horses, they commenced
a race for their lives. To turn back
was Impossible, the mountains rising
almost perpendicular on each side of
the canyon. Their only hope lay in
outstripping the fire, which was now at
their very heels. -Judge of theIr suir
p~ri se and consternation on discovering,'
a fewv rods ahead, the- wagon which had
precded them completely blocking up
the road, the driver having abandi~oned
it to save his horses. What wvas to be
done now must be done quickly. Perry
was on the point of giving the horses
the whip and tearing his way through,
but the Colonel, with' the cool head of
an old1 soldier, auiggested throwing off
the loadof fence p~olcs andl clearing the
road. Bloth act to wvork with a willl,
and in a few seconds hadl the poles uin
loaded, the wagon uncoupled ,and
tumbled dowvn theside of the mountain.
The roar and eraekling of the flames
and the booming crash of falling tim
ber was suflcient to striketerror to the
hearts of oldIer mountalnders than those
who had only been in the country a
few months, So exhausted were they
with the Intense heat and the severe
cx ertions of the last few moments that
they had barely sutfilelent strength to
clamber on the wagon and again conm
menece the frightful race. Tihme lire 1in
meantime hiad got shiead of them, and
putting the whip to their nowv maddenied
horses,thiey began runninug the gauntlet

was thick with smoke and impregnated
with the fumes of' burning pitoh, nmk

were LoginrIa.uito wear the picture of
despair. All hope of' ever getting
aufely through had almost died within
them, when Perry chanced to remark
that the Colonel's wife that night would
probably be a widow. The words acted
like magic on the Colonel, who, rais
ing to lis feet with a "not by a long
sight," began urging the horses to re
newed- exertions with the end of a
binmding chain, the horses literally tear
ing thiior way over fallens trees and
burnt timber for a distance of half a
mile, when. they emerged into a small
clearing whore the fire had taken a turn
and again gone up the mountain. With
the exception of some slight damage to
the wagon and a few bises them
selves, they arrived safely at the Feh'ry

A Itomantle Story.
The rolantie vilissitudes of the early
life of the Countess Solange de Kramer
hiave once more become the talk of the
Parils silons, and they are, indeed, so
eixtraordinary that, used as miaterials
for a novel, they would spoll the )ook
by the lack of verisimilitude. One
night in 1891 a little girl abolit one year
old wits deposited in the driwer of the
foundling hospital at Brest. She was
dressed With iichii finery, an,1d a note
attached to her skirts, told that her
nalne was Solange, and th'tt sit. would
be reclaimed by her father. The claim
wias never made, however, nd In i duo
tine tie hild wias transfei *'ed to tile
orphan asiumu, to be edue ted there.
As she grew up she devel ed a most
excraordinary beauty, but I I intelleet
appeared to be very weak, I id site silf
feredi from frequent nervous -i. When
sihe was twelve years old s! i was sent
out into tile streets to sell ',>wers, and
her beauty and modesty attr cted m11anv
people's good will, but sho @-ew weak
er and weaker, ad at las ilhe died.
According to French custoil sihe was
buried in all open casket, anfl, as It was-8
winter and tile ground was 1rozell, she
was laid In tile grave and on ly covered
with a thin layer of sand. l)uaring the
night she awoke, and, ptshing the
sand away, crept out fromithe grave.
Not exactly understanding 'what had
taken place, shte was not so cery iuhell
frightened, but crossing th glacis be
tween the cemetery and th.$ fortilnea
tions, she was suddenly stoliped by tie
outery "Qui vive," and, as sheldid not anl
swer, the sentinel fired, and she fell to
tile grutind. Brought into the guard
house, her wound was found to be very
slight, and sie soon recovered; but her
singular history and also her great beau
ty had made so deep an impression on i
young lieutenant of the garrison (Kra
lwer) that lie determined to be 1her pro
tector, and sent her to one of the most
fashionable educational establishments
in Parts. During the next fev years
Kramer was much tossed about by tile
war, but when In '18 ie returned to
Paris, lie found Solange a full -grown
woman, r.ot only beautiful, but accom
plished and spirited, with no more
trace of intellectual weakness or tner
vous fits. fle married her, and for sev
eral years the couple lived happily in
Paris. Mean while' investigations were.
imode concerning the girl left, in 1801,
in the foundling hospital at Brest, and
as these investigations were made by
the Sweedish ambassador, and in a
someowhat offilial manner, they attrac
ted sonic attention. Captain Kranier
heard about the affair, and sent a note

Cyprus is an island of audden
changes. Both climate and landscape
are subject to rapid van From
the glare of an overpo n one
mtay enter the cool shade of a.tropical
garden, with the' murmur ot water
trickling past as it wanders A~dng the
groves of oranges, figs and pg4ns. The
bare treeless plain may be changed in a
very short space for pine forests of
magnificent trees; instead of iand and
dust, we trample on bracken tern by
the side of ril Is and torrents running In
steel) gorges. Tihe climate changes
from great heat to chilling cold. We
have noted a daily variation of 50 de
grees of temperature; after calm, clear
morning, with the distant hills appar
ently close, suddenly a *Mndy' hurri
cane, accompanied by a' thiek haze,
comes over the island, and ;iqts out the
view. In the landscape it is the same.
There are no gentle sloper; the hills
all rise steeply from the plains; the
vater courses run in deep beds, cut
through alluvial soil and rock. These
signs show the island to have been
visited by heavy tropical rains. After
the Winter of 1877 the great Messarea
plain was a lake of water and. slime.
This Winter there has been barely five
inches ot rain fall-hardly enough to
make the roads muddy for a fer(hours.
There is no doubt that the resources of
the Island are great, if properly de
veloped. It possesses a very fertile
soll, capable of growing almost any
thing if carefully cultivated and irri
gated ; without water, the hot strocoo
wind<4 from the cast soon dry up any
vegetation. Irrigation, however, Is
not a dificult matter. On the plain,
water is found almost everywhere at
from 18 to 20 feet deep; and along the
hillsides there are many springs and
rivulets that run to waste throfh the
Inertness of the people. Thde1-Would
willingly paya handsome profitTor the
water if it was brought to them, but
iave not the capital or eoterprise to
make the required aqueducts them
selves. A few windmill pumps on the
plain irrigate a farm suffleintly to
make It independent of lack of rainfall,
and for the production of crops and
trees that require watering after the
rainly season Is past.
The Hindoo Women.
Thte 111ndoo women when young are
(elIate and beautiful, ao fir as *b can
reconcile beiuty with the olive com
plexion. They are finely proportion
ed; their limbs small, their features
soft and regular, and their eyes bright
and languishing, but tihe bloom of
beauty soon doeays, and age makes
rapid progress before they bave seen
thirty years. This may be accounted
for froim the heat of the climate and the
customs of the country, as they are
often mothers at twelve years of age.
No women can be more attentive to
cleanliness than the Ilindoos; they
take every method to render their per
sons delicate, soft and attractive; their
dress Is peculiarly becoming, consist
ing of a long piece of silk, or cotton,
tied round the waist, or hangifg in a
graceful manner to the feet; it a after
ward brought ever the boly in negli
gent folds; uinder this they cover the
bosom with a short waistcoat of satin,
bmut wear no lineni. Their long black
hair is adorned wlith je wels and
wreaths otfldowers, their ears are bpored
in miany places, and loaded with jeatris,
a variety of gold chains, stringe of
pearls andl precious stones, fall from
the neek over the bosom and tihe arms
are covered with bracelets from the
wrist to the elbowv. They have ' also
gold and silver chains round the
ankles, and an abundance of rings oni
their fingers and toes; among those on
the fingers is frequently a small mirror.
Th'ie richter the dress the less bpecom
ing it appe~ars, and a Hlindoo woman of
distinction always seems to be oyer
loaded with finery, while the .yi lage
nymphs, with fewer ornameita, but in
tihe saume elegant drapery, are' Noro
