On western Lille the day doeclinos,

And where the last ray I ngering shInes.
'Tie softly fading into night..
The tender gloaming, shado on shade,
Comes darkling down, on glen and glade.
What time, in beauty b-ight arrayed.
The stars bloom into sight ;
Then love takes up tho evening song,
And memory, kindling varm and strong,
Rocalls doad hopes in thickoning throng,
AA pain's the past in mellow light.
On eastern slopes the sunbeams wko,
The soft rays, 1i 4hting lawn andslako,
On kindling earth an I heaven break
In radiance touoihed with morning-dow;
The dawn's young beauties, fre4h and aweot,
in blissful union move and moot.
What time t o passing shadows Reet,
Of n'ght depart from view.
And love sings soft the matin song,
And lip surveys on phitious strong,
The future's bleasngs. rich and long.
And paints their dawn with prescienco
Morning and noon andcst of qun,
Through all the hours of 'day'that run,'
Tho light from heaven, at dawn begun.
'lio waiting earth with beauty fills.
And naturo smiles, in all her moods,
Through lawi and laks and wildd and woods,
What tines the heavenly lustre Hoods,
And 0l1 her pu'sos thrills ;
And love takes up her joyous song,
And p and memory, true and strong,

upon the graveled walk. 11er straw hat
had fallen back from her face, and its whit'e
stin ribbons Iay loosely about her bare
neck, like bands'of silver; while the moon
light stole over the golden-brown braids of
her luxuriant hair tinging themn softly
with its radiance.
Should I speak to her, as was perhaps
my duty, or like a true daughter of Eve,sit
by my window and watch the closing of
the little farce ? Alas! I was but a young
governess, comparatively speaking,and the
atcrn, practical. life of two years at Somner
ville Ilouse had not quite rooted out the
love of sentiment and romance that from
early youth had known a welcome hoome
with mc. So I did the latter-watched.
"But, Georgie," spoke a voice, which I
at once recognize( as belonging to my
young cousin, Walter Marston, you appear
like one insane. Will you listen to reasoRn."

There was about a monent's pause, dur
ing which Walter retired a few paces, put
ting on the air of a prince, while Georgie
fretted out the ends of her blue sash with
her slender white fingers.
"'Very well,"'said Walter, tossing the
brown hair, which thec damp evening air
had made int o -soft ,brown rings, from his
forehead Georgia bowed, "If I ami ill,"
said lie, ''and send for you-"
"I'll never go to you, Walter Marston,
never!" interrupted the young girl.
"Very well," caime again from the lips
of Walter, as he turned half reluctantly
"Take tihis,if you please 1" cried Georgic;

circlet from -her finger. "And this,"
snatching from her nieck a golden cross ; "I

"D~o not dare to thrust such paltry trifles
in my face, Georgie Abbott, or even you
may find that there. is a bound to my en

Lon of Appetite.
Loss of appetite is of common occur
eat once at the onset of many fevers, but. IX
of usually It is a far more chronic complaint. hi
lat Nothing is commoner than to - hear people
ok say that they 'have no appetite," they "(do I
A not care for anything," or that they "ha'e C
the sight of food." It is often enough as
ofsociated with a condition of debility and
general Inaptitude for work. . It is by no
me, means uncommon in those who are wor- MN
is ried and anxious, and find it difficult to di
to make both ends meet. People who devote TJ
too much attention to the brandy bottle pn
generally find meals rather a trouble than se
otherwise ; breakfast, especially, is a difli- di
culty. These individuals are generally gi
he~ very dainty and fanciful, and when at home se
ma- grumble at everything that Is set before h<
ho them. They arc very fond of abusing the w
,x cook for what is in reality the morbid con- en
ng dition of their own digestive organs. To- m
an b~acco smokers, or, at all events, those who of
is smoke in any quantity, are seldom great (i
od performers with the knife 'and fork. To- re
to bacco and opium and alcohol seem all to hii
ty have the power of deadening the appetite. th
m. People who tdke little or no out-dioor exer- 0f
,rdl cisc generally complain that they do not eat gi
Lto well, and no wonder. If a nian wants a rl
se good appetite, lie must earn it somehow or hti
es other. Seime one may giy~e hinm his dini- th
y, ncr, hut if hd is to enjoy it lie wIll lhave to th
ry bring his own saucei ini the shape of an ap- ci
.to petite, ha
all Irregularity of meals is aiiother common a
,n. cause of loss of appetite. The stomach ap- he
ye preciates regularity, and likes to have its di
c. want attended to at the proper time. It is 9
-a curious how iii a well-regulated b~ody the Is
he 'desire for food Is experienced day by day 0r
on at efy the same. hlit .-We all know w
to 'how' dreadfully .badsteMpfredinany people se
o get if their dinner is only five minutes late. sc
mtot Ills all very well to say that they are stu- ed
as pid, and should not be put out about trifles, gi
in- but it must be remembered that it is no of
trifle to them, and that oven a slight delay at
may give rise to a considerable amount of
bodily discomfort. The stomach has been ri
accustomed to receive supplies at certain fo
regular intervals, amid, if it fails to receive u'
iho them, Jt objects mnost eipphatically. j ,Noth- i
ho ing is mere' likely to spoil th'e atppetite than y
na, eating or drinking between meals. You hu
ln. hear a man complaining- that lie cannot eat fe
en- his dinner, and you find on inquiry that pl
it, about an hour before lie had three or four re
ne dozen oysters and seome bread and butter fl
rt- 'and a pint of stout, "just to pull him to- Im
Ily getheor.'' It may be thought that this is an, N
[or exaggeration, but it ia not. We have seen' tI
dat it, and we wIsh we liad not, for nothing a
ed, can be more contemptible than a man who t11

in, thiniR' that it would boa great hardship to at

urn they get up : ham and eggs and all thue et- ii
-a. coteras; and then at 1:1 A. Mi. they go in It

of not bear this in mind. You can Hever ox- n
'Ito pect to have a good appetite unless you al- e
