A RAINY EVININU.
The twilight shadows darkling fall;
0 niemories dearl against thy thrall
My heart strives all in vain.
Yet wherefore strive against my tnood?
I cannot silence if I would,
The softly falling rain.
At such an hour, on such an eve,
Bright hopes, that yet I only grieve,
Sprang up to only fade and wane.
Ah, never more, hand clasped in hand,
Shall we within the doorway stand,
And watch the falling rain.
Yet still the sweetness of that hour
[teturns with all its wonted power
Of mningled joy and pain,
When dropping down from window-oaves,
Or gently falling on the leaves,
I hear the summer rain.
o cruel Meiory I thus to bring
That glad brief hour, with bitter sting,
Back to my heart again;
These parting words of fond regret.;
With glad pretext, love lingering yet,
Unmnindful of the.rain.
Ah! br:ef indeed, poor aching heart,
The joy those fickle hopes impart;
Grief follows in their train.
Nay, nay, my heart; take upward wing.
O cruel Memory! thy sting
Shall vanish with the rain.
Though sadder seems the song I trill;
Yet sorrow, with its plaiintiiltlirill,
Adds sweetness to the strain,
As tragrant perfumes soft.ly flow
Fromn hawthorn blossoms bending low,
Beat down by wind and rain.
A FAIR FRIEND.
Vernon, stepping down from the
carriage that had been sent from Royal
Oaks to meet him, thought what a
pretty picture she made-that slender
graceful young girl standing in the
open doorway of the grand old man
sion, the - -tering sunlight slanting
across hei white-robed figure, and
lingering in a glory on her yellow hair
and rose-leaf complexion.
Evidently she was expecting some
one, and Vernon could not fail to see
the look of inquiry in her blue eyes as
he went up the step towards her, and
the thought flashed over him that she
was like a young saint on her shrine,
and he the worshipper.
As he went up nearer her, valise in
hand, the look of inquiry suddenly
changed into a little flush and smile of
"I am quite sure this is Mr. Ver
"And so am I " "Only I am not
quite so sure who you are."
Hie laughed at this informal style of
"Oh, I am Genevieve-haven't you
ever heard Mr. Bascom speak of me."
"I have not seen or heard from my
grandfather for twenty years," he said
graviely, --ana u ouly conie non In lJv
dience to his dying request."
A surprised look was in her face.
"You have not come much too soon,"
she answered. Mr. Bascom asks for
you every few minutes, and I told him
I would watch for the carriage and
bring you at once when you came.
Shall 1 take you to him Iow? Ile is
1 alone, but for Miss Carlyon."
Vernon followed her in through the
magnificent hall, paved with colored
marble in fanciful patterns, thinking
with a curious little sensation that it
was the first time in a score of years
that he had crossed the threshold of
Royal Oaks-to which lie should right
fully be sole heir, but which in all
human probability, he never would
possess, because of a deep-rooted long
standing grudge his grandfather held
against him-because he was his moth
er's child, and she had married Otis
Vernon against her father's consent.
And because young Vernon had his
father's name and his fathier'f look anid
nblanners, ok(1 Mr. Bascom had one day
told him he needn't come to Royal
Oaks any more, because as his mother
was dlead, there was 1no longer any
medium of welcome for him.
So-for the first time in twenty years,
Otis Vernon crossed tihe threshold of
Itoyal Oaks, and met his fate when lhe
looked ill Genevieve's sweet blue eyes.
Everythling was so strange to him11
thlis lovely fair-hlaired girl, .whose name
was Genevieve, the other splendid
looking woman who was sitting by the
main's bed, and whom Genevieve briefly
presented-'"Miss Carlyon ,Mr. Vernon"
- a creamny-skinnled, crinon-lipped
girl, with ey'es ant(i hair like midnighlt.
Old Mr. Bascomi gave him a sniff of
"You anid Genevieve may leave the
rooml,'' he said to Miss Carlyon, in his
sharp) autocratic way, that remember
ing so wvell, seemed the 01nly lamniliar
thing about It all.
Themn he tol Otis to come up beside
"1 didn't send for you because 1
especially wanted to see you oni my own
accounIt,'" 110 said abruptly. "You
know I am not in1 the habit of mtneing
matters, and( I see no reasonl for doing
an.y differently because I happen to be
on my dying bed."
It seemed1 strange, impossible to rea
lize that thlese htard imlperious wordls
camne fr'om a (dyinig man, and Vernon
was at a loss to know what to say.
"I caine at once when you sent," lie
"'And it is a good thing that you
did " the old1 man replied curtly.
h~iat I have to say to you is just
this. "I leave a fortune anId estate
and valuab)les worth julst exactly two
hlundredl thousand dlollars. If you
w ant It you can have it by marrying
p. Miss Carlyon. If you don't marry her,
you can't have it.'' That's all there is
about it. "It's all dlownl In my will
but the wvill is not to be openied until
one month from the day I die. ' "You
have your choice." "You can do just
as yell please."
Vernon miet steadhily the hard, al
most ciamel eyes that looked up fromn
the p)inchedl paie face.
"I think you knowv you ate asking
an impossibility." TIhis ladly of whom
you speak is an entire stranger to me.
lIn a mnonthl's time It is not at all likely
1 would learn to care anlythig for her
Vernon spoke coldly, proudly, and as
lie spoke it occured to him that a
month, a week would be too long in
which lie could be taught to tell little
yellow-haired Genevieve lie loved her.
"You can do just as you p)lease of
course," Mr. Bascom said. "That
all I have to say."
"I suppose they'll give you a root
somewhere--you'd better stay, not
you are here until after it's over-ye
can have an opportunity of gettin
acquainted with Miss Carlyon."
But the end was not quite at hanm
Vernon stayed because he liked t
be where Genevieve was, with whor
he had come to be wonderful friends.
She told him that she was a protege
of Mr. Bascom's, but that Augusta
Miss Carlyon-had superseded her ii
Vernon watched Miss Carlyon ver
She was undeniably handsome an
charming in her manners.
She could sing and play and rea
aloud most exquisitely, whereas littl
Genevieve was no elocutionist what
ever, and only played simple littl
pieces, and sang the easiest ballads.
Yet Otis Vernon fell desperately i1
love with her, and before one wea;
had gone by had made up his mind the
he would marry her if she would hav
him, and the two hundred thousan
be lost as far as he was concerned.
It was not without a struggle thougl

thing went quietly along until
One stormy July night, when a thlun

hours, burst over Royal Oaks in fury
and then settled into a pouring raih
Mr. Vernon had spent, the evenini
with Genevieve in the library, and lac
told her in a lover's frank conifidenici
just what was before him, accordingc
his grandfather's will, and took her 1:
his arms and told her how infinitely hl
preferred her and her sweet love to al
the goods the gods could give him.
He asked her it sie would be hii
wife, and told her how he loved her it
ai of love's most eloquent words.
And Genevieve, with a little happ3
smile on her baby-sweet mouth, and ar
upward rapturous look of her innocenl
blue eyes, did not say hii nay.
"I almost believe I loved you that

that had come to im that night.

s with a glance around the apparently
unguarded room, Genevieve came in,
i went up to the little marble-top medi
v cine table, and hastily, but firmly
.i poured half a dozen drops of some e
g liquid, from a vial in her hand, into M
the goblet of medicine, and then glided 1
I away as she had come, leaving Vernon a
paralyzed with horror and fear, scarcely s
D able to speak to Dr. Fortune as he came
. into the room a moment later.
"You look as if you'd seen a ghost," o

- bedside, and gave an exclamation of
"Mr. Bascom is dead," he said, thou t
y Miss Carlyon coming in, related all t
the strange symptoms. t
I "It looks like i case of poisoning," t
Dr. Fortune said gravely, and all Ver- tl
I non's pulses seemed stopping as he 1
3 walked to the table and took up the i,
- goblet of medicine, and examined it i
closely, with a face graver and graver,
"Somebody has done it," he unai
i solemnly. "There will have to be an s
c investigation here.'
t Sitting in her wrapper beside her i

think that the woman whon I have Nv
kissed is in danger of the hangman's c

rheumatic pains, lameness and stiffness. C
The reason it is so often these joints in C
1 preference to others, is due to their it
c1 greater exposure. They are often put d
directly upon the ground, in place of
the feet, but without the protection of
the boots. We use them in pushing d
gates and doors and to& hold things, as
a a harnessmaker uses his vise. The T
n knees are often the most exposed of all
e the joints; as in riding either in a saddle 11
or vehicle, they are the first to get wet t
or cold. They are above boots and be
n low the coat. These joints should be %
r protected, and when painful, should be t
( rubbed vigorously with hot water con- r
0 taming soda then with a course towel d
and lastly with three parts of fresh lard 6

Q To avoid nightmare and dreams,
I sleep on the right side, never on the r
back. Let the supper come just five (I
It hours after dinner and four hours before I
retiring, and let it be very simple and t
light. Eat no vegetables or cured U
meats for supper. If you are still troub
led with dreams, take a little salt in
water on retiring. And let those child- C
ron lwho are very sleepy in the morning t
do likewise--take supper at five o'clock 3
0 and retire at eight; they will waken a
t early and feel rested. With dinner at 1l
r twelve o'clock a child is very hungry at r
five, and if he eats his supper thein, he I
s will have it digested enough by eight
o'clock, so that he can sleep and get u
e fully rested by morning, But if lie is
e obliged to wait until six o'clock (which t
a ofteii means that the good housewife I
t imtends to have supper at six and suc
ceeds at six and a quarter, and the g
r "nmenfolks" get ready at six and a e
1 half, and finish at seven), he is very (I
hungry and eats a great supper that t
makes him feel dull and heavy; lie re
tires long before it can be digested, N
and, with sleep, every activity of the '
body is slowed, and the stomach joins a
the other muscular apparatus in taking l
a rest. The poor child is wakened with k
s difliculty, and feels worse than before. f
, Very iicshy people may lay aside some ~
e of their burden by avoiding the use of s
t sugar, starch and fat, eating very spar- sI
e ingly of these. Vegetables growing P
a underground increase one's weight. 1
Remember the fasts that have been un. d
e broken for days and weeks without t
1 harm. Lean meat will not increase
t -A dropsical swelling may occur al
3 most anywhere, and is to be distinguish- l'
I ed by its smoothness, natural heat and t
e color, and by the fact that, if firmly
. pressed upon by the thumb for ten so
conds, it leaves the ianprint of the v
thumb for a little time, gradually be- 8
. comilig smooth again. A bandage is d
t useful. after gentle friction for a few g
e minutes. Rest and quiet are useful. U
a But the cause should be determined by a
e a competent person. Among the com- v
mon causes are leaking of the heart's t
1. valves; thinness of the blood, which is P
1 sometimes watery (in which case the 0
a sufferer is pale and emaciated), and 11
d disease of the kidneys. The dropsy it- i
e self is not a disehse, but the result of I
1 disease. The causes are nearly always
r mechanical; either there is too much i
e pressure, or the circulating fluid is thin b
e enough to escape through its tubes.
e The pressure on the veins of the ankle
