WHEN THE SEA GIVES UP HER DEAD
They toll us with the quiet voico
Of perfect fhith, and hope, and trust,
That on the Il)ay when Christ shall como
To bid His chosen ones rejoice,
To breathe now life in doath's dark dust,
To give new speech where death struec
From out the sad sea's restless bed,
Shall rise once more the hidden dead.
They toll us this vith upraised eyes,
.That gaze beyond tho present's woe,
And whisper of a Heaven and Gods,
Draw pictures of star-laden skies,
Where angels wvander to and fro,
When those now 'neath the churchyard sod
Will rise from out their dreary bed,
The day t,he sea gives up her dead.
Yet will they raise once more the j'ast,
Or give ue back the faith that died,
Or breathe new breath in love's dead breast?
What for the love that (lid not last?
What for the days, when side by side
We wandered on, nor thought of rest,
Will these arise and leave their bed
The day the sea gives up her dead?'
Ah, neverinore dead joy is dead,
The sunshino dead nu'er sillos again,
'Tie evening gathers on the shore,
Our kiss was kissed, our words were said,
Nauhgt lasts fore'er save sin and pain,
Love dead is dead lorever,
Silent he lies, in his cold bed,
Though all life's-seas gave ui' their deadl

"Cora," said old Miss Duchesne ab
ruptly, "did you ever have your fortune
Cora started at the sudden question
and then smiled.
"I" said she, ' my fortune told? How
should I? We city girls never stumble
across gipsy camps.
Old Miss Duchesne was sallow, with
very black hair, scarcely as yet sprin
kled with gray, although 60 years had
passed over it; sharp black eyes, and a'
nose and chin which nearly met. She
looked almost like a sphinx herself as
she sat there.
"I used to tell fortunes when I was a
girl " said she.
"With cards?" lau.ghed Cora.
"No, by palmistry. Shall I tell
Cora looked at the old lady with sur
prise. Was she in jest or earnest? Why
did she speak so sharply? Why did those
glittering eyes seem to burn their way
into her very bram?
But Miss D1udhesne had been the

"Yes," said Cora, calmly.
"A white, plump, velvety 14tle

closely into the pahn that her nose
most touched the rosy skin. "Let n.

The girl sat as if some new light had
suddenly dawned upon her brain.
"You mean my cousin Ariadne?"
said she involuntarily.
Miss Duchesne nodded.
"I mean your Cousin Ariadne," said
She. "Child, child! can it be possible
that you are so blind as not to see what
is going oit under your very eyes? That
woman is winning your lover away?"
Cora smiled increduously.
"Oh, but that is quite impossible.

"Meni are false," saidi Miss Duchteone
with energy. '"There never was one

They who have mastered the Alps,
and found them already mastered by
L their predecessors, sigh for a new
world, and find it in the Himalayas.
There is a singular correspondent be
tween the two chains. India is the
Italy of Asia. Each has a magnificent
Island for its satellite. Bombay cor
L responds to Genoa, Calcutta to Venice,
i Delhi to Milan, while the Granges.and
the Indus are humbly represented by
the Po and the Adige. Both chains
run from east to west, presenting their
boldest and steepest front to the south.
Both have their ancient and well
known passes. In both cases the most
rugged of outlines and eternal snow are
the horizon of fertile and populous
plains. As to scenory,while the Hima
layas are more sublime, the Alps are
more beautiful, for they are generally
seen with .a surrounding of wood and
water, the latter of which is entirely
wanting in the Himalayas, except o' t
of sight, at the bottom of deep gorges.
The Alps and the Himalayas both
throw out long branches east and w( it,
as if to claim whole continents for thoir
own. Northward the resemblances
ceases, for middle and northern Europo
supply no' parollel to the elevated step
pes, the ~aterminable deserts, the frost
and Swamp of Sibo ia. The Ilimalayas
looked and spoke to the south, and tihe
railway has brought them within a few
days of 11ombay and Calcutta. With
in six months an Englishman may leave
London and return after seeing all that
is most worth secing in the Indian
peninsula, including the Himalayas, in
a climate as bearable as an average
summer at home. So they who pine
for the distinction of first ascents have
now no obstaclo In the way. True
there have been strange tales, or i'Jle
surmises, that at tihe height of 20,OuO
feet, or even less, life is Impossible.
NMan could not breath there or could
I only breath in vain. That, however,
was one of the points to be investigat
ed.. and it is understood that a moun
Stain clinber must be prepared to risk
his life for a suihfcient object. Mr.
Graham has not attained an absolute
success; but lie has paved the way to
L successes. Ito has demonstrated that
it is possible to breathe and live at an
[ elevation many thousand feet higher
than Mont Blanic, and that it is possi
ble to undergo tihe fatigue of much
longer' and steeper ascents than those
L from Chamounix or Zermatt. He has
r brought the highest peaks of the Hima
layas within reach of moderate strength
activity and perseverance.
The difficulties surmounted by Mr.
I Graham to within sight of complete
tuccess speak well for the courage and
power of our race. Ile had with him
two picked guides from Switzerland.
One of them was an utter failurc and
the other could be "scedy" and incapa
ble. lie had a journey of twelvo days
to the scene of action, and as le had to
do much of it in rain, it could not but
take somie strength out of him. He
had then to cross deep gullies, through
which dashed enormious streams. Ile
had to make a series of ascents, P3.
mug over two peaks higher than Mont
Blanc. After live days of this wcrk lie
had to encamp at a still greater eleva
tion, and semt back his coolies, who ato
immore than they wore worth. After a
climb of some hours on an ascent that
would be steep for Switzerland, lie bad
to leave behoid one of his two wmiss
guides. lie got within sight of a sum
mit 23,OOu feet high, and would have
reached it but that there suddenly
came on one of those storms of wind
and snow which it was impossible to
face n such a situation. Iow they got
tback safe at all Mr. Graham does not
Sknow. They reached the camp, and
had to pass a night In their wvet clothes
without fle'c. After thIs lie tried .Nanda
Devi, the Indian Matterhorn, nearly
btice a high as its European brother,
bttecoolies again proved faithless.
R~ecoi ding several failures, lie Is glad to
note one peaik of more than '20,000J feet
which lie ascended, and 'In which ne
sees the earnest of greater act.ieve
menits. Ile is still undaunted, and we
catch our last glimpse of him for the
presient preparing for thme ascent of a
.giant over 28,000t feot, the famous Kin
chminjuniga. Others, moreover, are 'on
the track, and if, as seems likely, there
will be a fewv failures, Mr. (Grahmam's

a than the bottom of thme pail, and about
one inch In height,. The bag is now
e tIlled with clean, well-washed sand and

should bie p~ressied against the sidesq of

,veiry satisfactory test for such a slimle
appliance, and I cannot too stronmgl~y
recomnmendl it in cases where a mor
e csomlilcated ariangement cannot be
substituted. The fiest and cleanest
sand is desirable. Sand purchased at
glass manufactories should be obtained.

.the suspended particles. But in a meo
dhern filter more perfect wvork Is required,
and another-effect produced, in ordem
that water contaiining objectionable

To make a perfect filter, which should
have the double action of arresting the
finest suspended matter and removing
tilo matters held in solution, and the
whole to cost but little and capable of
being made by any housewife, has been
the object of my study for many months,
and, after many experiments and test
ing various substances in my combina
tions, I suggest the following plan,
whish I ind gives very perfect results,
and will cost a couple of dollars:
Purchase a commoi glvanized Iron
pail, which costs lifM cents. Take It
to a tin shop and hav ai'ole Cut In tile
centre of the bottom about the size of a
five-cent piepc, and direct them to Eol
der around it a piece OOf tin about three
fourths of an inch deep, to form a spout
to direct the flow of water downward
in a uniforin direction. Obtain about
two qaarts of small stones at a store
where material for rooting is sold; after
a good wastning place about two inches
of the seat bottom of the pail to form
On this place a partition of horse
hair cloth or Canton flannel cut to size
of pail. On this place a layer of animal
charcoal, sold at the wholesale chemists
as bone-black at about ten cents
a pound. Select this about the
size of gunpowder grains, and not
in powder. This layer should be three
or foin inches. A second partition ay
ing bee placed. add turee inches of
sand, as clean aid fine as possib!e.
Those within reach of glassimakers
should purchase the sand there, as it is
only witti that quality of sand timt the
best results can be obtained. On this
place another partition, and add more
line stones or shingle-say for two or
three inches. This serves as a weight,
to keep the upper partition iii place.
Your filter is now complete, but not
ready for use. However careful you
may have been in washing the material,
a residue of dust will remain, and tais
has to be gradually washed through.
For this purpose pass as much water as
possible througli the litter during the
first day without using il The next
day it will 12c ready for use, and, if my
directions have been comlplied wilh,
filtered water will always b~a at com
miand, not only freed from all suspended
substances, but from color due to mat
ter hold in solution having been re
moved. I tound that the yellowish co
lot of Croton water, which is very dill
cult to remove, was entirely absent in
water passed through my filter. To
test this, water must bo titled up in a
large white porcela''.' basii. In tuis

A Hartford fruit dealer has been ad

"What price do you pay for then?
"They bring, now, about $1 a bushel.
I would take one hundred bushels at
that price, to day. By-and-by, witen
they begin to come in, they will drop
to $3, or even $2, a bushel. In searce
years, $7 a bushel is paid, and I have

The chestnut season usually lasts six
or seven wveeks. About 5,000 bushels

multitude at five cents a half-pint, from

Irona in Aroiteltre.
Th le construction of a thecatr'e in
Londoni eintirely of iron, within as

comment, and it augments the discus
sion of the part iron is to play inm thme
architecture of thme future. For the
exterior iron Is objectionable, since it
warps when exposed toa high tempera..
tune, and is therefore fatal to a building
in imnediate proximity to a great coni
flagrationi. It is not desirable to have
the numiber of iron fronts along Broad
way or other streets increased, but the
use of iron for tihe interior of struct
ure?s de:,1gned to be fireproof might
with advantage be nmuchn extended.
Builders have only begun to understanid
Its value for Interior finishing and orna
mentation. The Interior of thme Temple
Court building gives a hint as to wh~at
mIght be done in the substitution of
iron for wood in .interlor work. 'There
is no reason why a particle of wood
should be introduced Into great busi

which need to be thoroughly fireproof,

of iron for interior work Is likely to
increase as soon as artists: devote pro

Jam0's old Watch.
On Brush street, near Jefferson ave.
nue, Detroit, for an hour the other day
0 a bruised and battered dumb watch and
0 chain lay in the gutter, where some
3 foot had kicked it from the walk, if
,I anyone gave the toy a second glance it
- was to realize that some child had lost
or flung it away. The casewas battered,
P the face scratched and scarred, and no
body would turn aside to pick it up.
By and by a curious procession came
a up from the Brush street depot, It
r was composed of a man and his wife,
3 bath past 50 years of age, and four
) children, tLe youngest of whom seemed
to be about 12. They were spread out :
a on walk and street, heads down and r
moving slowly, and there was a look of
anxiety on every face. Some one asked
3 the man if he had lost his wallet, and
"No, not that. Somewhere as we
oame along we lost our Jamie's watch."
"Well, sir, not so far as money goes,
I but it's a rolie of the dead, and, sir- r
"'Oh, it was an old dumb watch, eh?" U
"Yes, sir! '
"You'll find it in the gutter up by n
3 that post."
The entire family madte a rush for the I
spot, and the watch had no sooner been
lifted than the mhother kissed it and the
children shouted their exultaticu,
'It may seem foolish to you, sir,"
explained the husband, as he slyly wiped
at something liivj a tear in the corner ro
of his nle, "but it'a a lung twelve years a
since Janmie died. Tiat watoh was tue
Rest toy I ever bought him. We've

You see it's old and bent but, moneioy
couldn't buy it. Every time we look at
it we can call up his blue eyes and C
chubby face, and the thought that lie
im wailting ior us up there almost answers
for a meal with mother."
'Are you going away?"
"Yo---aeross the ocean to our od

- greater with the corresponding day of

Low down, gray streaks and patenles b
were seen over the valley of tile ihiono. S
These gradually augmented till they i
