She has not found her king as yet,
The golden days glide by;
They bring no sorrows to forget,
Nor.any cause to sigh.
No heart fpr her devotion made
The pasdlbnate summers bring;
Unharmed she walks, and unafrayd
She has not found her king.
Men bring their titles, and their gold;
She turns in scorn away,
The man must be of di8erent mold
She swears she will obey.
Though poor in honor and in lands,
Rich in a rarer thing,
Tilled by God alone, he stands,
When she will own her king.
But when he comes, as come he will,.
Strongto support, and grand,
With supplication that shall fill
SHer soul, like her command;
She'll place her hand in his, and take
Whate'er this world may bring,
Proud and contented for his sake,
Whom she hath crowned her king!

Rosa Dale was standing in the illum
inated archway of the autumn woods,
her bright braids of hair pierced by
one or two wandering sunbeams, her
dimpled child-face framed in, as it
were, by sprays of rod-veined autumn
leaves, while her apron was full of the
glistening brown chestnuts which she
had picked up.
John Brabazon leaned against the
tall, smooth trunk of the birch tree,
and looked at her, with a lazy, luxu
rious sense of artistic beauty entering
his mind as he gazed.
"Of course I mean it," said he.
"But I am only twelve years old,"
cried Rosa, flinging back the sunny
tendrils of hair that hung over her fore
"You are exactly twelve times as
lovely as any of the city belles that

"Well!" said Rosa, every dimple
coming shyly out on lip and cheek as
she stood there.
"It's to be a compact, eli?" said Mr.
Rosa nodded her fair little head.
"But " she questioned, rather dubi
ously, 'where is the ring?"
"The engagement ring, Mr. Braba
zon," explained Rosa reproachfully.
"Don't you know there's alivays a
ring in novels''
"And most generally it's a diamond."
"If you'll believe," said Mr. Braba
zon tragically, "I never thought of the
ring at all."
"But here's a little opal that used to
be my mother's, hanging on my watch
"Won't that do?"
Rosa held her brown finger, while he
fitted it on.
"You-you haven't kissed me yet!"
she said, when this ceremony was
complete. "Lovers always kiss their
Mr. Brabazon laughed.
"Come," said he, "this is getting
"But here's the kiss, before the rest
of the chestnut party get back."
"And mind, this is to be a profound
secret between you and me."
Rose ran back home 'with a vague
sensation of mysterious delight, and
thought how iideo Mr. Brabazon looked,
all the time she was nmunching her
roasted chestnuts; anmd Mr. Brabazoni
himself took advantage of the little
joke to proclaim himself an engaged

Belle Vernon, looking anything but
delighted. "But of course, Mr. Bra

-eUglon and Umbrellas.
The umbrella is probably a remnani
of solar worship; and it is only the de.
generacy of later times, and especiall)
- the leveling and democratic spirit of
r Europe, which has debased it to the
paltry uses of keeping oneself dry.
The robust people of all times did
not want to be protected from sun or
rain. They were too hardy, and too
much inclined to do nothing unless
[ they could not avoki it, to care for the
Umbrellas are not, however, neces
sarily a sign of the degeneracy of the
i human race, though superficial observ
3 era might think them so. A Siamese
work, the "Thai Chang," gives us a
correct idea of their origin. "The
1 expression, San Kounny (the three bril
llant things)" says the learned author,
t "designates the sun, the moon, and the
- stars. These illuminate the world by
l the command of the Lord of the heav
ens, and disseminate their benificent
rays into all parts of the universe. To
point the finger suddenly at them is a
very grave breach of respect, and merits
Here, then, we have the true first
notion of the proposed use of the un
brella. Weak human nature is unable
to govern its actiops as to be uniformly
mindful of the celestial powers.
In the common affairs of life men
are constantly pointing in all directions
and might inadvertentiy stare rudely
at the moon, or the stars, or even at
the sun, though there is not so much
danger of that. In order to protect
themselves against such thoughtless
ness, and mnorover to avoid the danger
of unseemly actions, and possibly dis
respectful gestures in full view of the
God of Day, the umbrella was invented.
Consequently, when the article first,
caie into use, it was most generally
used in ile weather, when the sun was
high in the heavens and thus was most
liable to be otfended.
In rainy weather the danger was not
so sermous, for t,he great luminary cov
lred l) his face in -clouds, 11 with a
veil, and it was not so necessary to
guard against being rude to him. As
a natural consequence, whenever it

ors put down their umbrellas and were
in later days, skeptical people who
did not scruple to speak disrespect fully
of the sun, let alone the stars, found the
parasol-im the etymological sense
convenient for keeping off the rain;
and, when the pious-mninded were low
ering their umbrellas, these heretical
weaklings unfurled theirs to cover their
sorry bodies. Hence the no(lern dese

the old chronicles that such a marvel
was once perforned.
There was a great drought in all the
land, the fierce sun sucked up the pools,
"the young rice died ere it could hide
a quail," and all the people were dying
with thirst, notwithstanding that every
man of them sat under his shun-shade.
But it was revealed to the pious gov
ernor, Tseng Kong, in a dream, that
he would meet an old man at a certain
place and that this holy personage
would save the country. Accordingly,
next (lay he went forth in solemn pro
cession, with all his retinue and sol
dieh y; and outside the city walls, where
all the plain was shimniorng in the
heat, they.found a shriveled old gray
beard, sitting under an ancient umbrella
w ~ith hun dreds of patchmes onl it. He
seemed quite cheerful, and1( did not api

MR. J. 0. BoAO-Dear Sir : I bought the first
Davis Machine sold by you over five years ago for
my wife who has given it a long and fair trial. I
am well pleased with It. It never gives any

Mr. BOAO: Ion Wih to know what I have to say
in regard to the Davis Machine bought of you three
years ago. I feel I can't say too much in its favor.
I made about 180,00 within flivo months, at times
running It so fast that the needle would get per
fectly 4ot from friction. I feel confident I could
not have (done the same work with as muot ease
and so well with any other machine. No time lost
in adjustlug attachments. The lightest running
machine i have ever treadled. BrotherJames and
Williams' families are as much pleased with their
Davis Machines bought or you. I want no better
inachie. As I said before, I don't think too
much can be said for the Davis Machine.
