UNDER THE AUTUMN MwCO,
Under the autumn moon
How soft the rythmic rune
Of winds that singthemselves to sleep
Where riohly freighted waters creep
Through gorgeous woodlands dark and deep.
Under the autumn moon I
Under the autumn moon
Vhen life lies all aswoon,
Far sweeter than the song of bird,
In summer's scented shadows heard,
Is tender, low breathed lover's word,
Under the autumn moon I
Under the autumn moon
Mysterious voices eroon
-ine strange and half-forgotten lays
That echo dreams of by-gone days,
Among old scenes fond memory strays
Under the autumn moon I
Under the autumn moon,
Ah, once my heart in tuno
With thy dear heart in hope beat high
But now between-the earth and sky
Its only solace is a sigh
Under the autumn moon!

dismal English summer. All the morn

The accident took place near the
White Lodge, and we had to pass out
by the Star and Garter gates. Long
before we reached them I was madly in
love with Ella, and had already in
formed her that this was the happiest
hour of my life, when to my dismay I
learned that she was Miss Ella Barr
ington, eldest daughter of "Barring
ton's Starch," as we called him at the
bank, where he lodged a portion of the
wealth he had acquired by the manu
facture-of that commodity.
Barrington Starch lived in a brand
new stucco palace he had built for him
self near Richmond Hill; and, al
though he was not exactly a Perkyn
Middlewick, I could never understand
how he could be the father of so re
fined and lovely and fairy-like a be
ing as Ella.
Before the gates of Barrington Hall,
as he called his bricks and mortar mon
strosity, we paused. We were friends,
dear old friends, by this time. I knew
that she was nineteen, and that she loved
nothiag in the world so much as her
bull terrier pup, except her father and
her brother Bob, and she knew every
detail of my uneventful lire of seven
and twenty summers.
She asked me to come in; papa
would want to thank me, she said.
I found papa genial enough, a&hit
domewhat condescending. "The young
man from the bank," I afterward
found he called me, although my name,
Ernest Wynter, was known to him,
and he himself had begun life as a mill
hand at six shillings a week. Still I
was allowed to visit at Barrington Hall
and to play tennis with the girls, and
every day I grew more abjectly in love
with iEla, whose unaffected charm of
manner no parvenu surroundings could
Of course I dared not speak of my
fove to her. In my position that was
out of the question. I could only try
to kiss the dog's head just after her
lovely lips had rested there, and to
detain her hand as long as possible in
greeting and parting from her.
Yet she must have guessed something
of what I felt; for she took me one day
into the kitchen garden away from the
children, and there, lookig - at me
with lovely, tear-dimmed eyes, she
"I ia s.o unhappy, Mr. Wynter.
Papa wn ie to umrry Alderman Sir
I john Westbury. He is a nice old
thin, and papa says I shall be Lady
Mfayo-rss. But I think he is quite as
fond oE my sister Bertha as he is of me,
a gj-I an in love with some one else."
The look with which she accom
panied her last words was a revelation.
She grew very red the next moient,
and began rapidly talking of something
I else, while I like a fool, stood and
stared at her until her wretched young
brother Bob came bawling down the
garden after her, and so took my
chance of speaking from me.
For the rest of the afternoon Ella
avoided me, and, cursing my stupidity,
I went home and wrote her ths follow
ing letter :
MY D)EAR M(iss BA1 uYNGTON : I dont knrn9

you wish me to be-your sincere friend o:

I suppose other men have watched.
for the postman before now; but surely
no man ever waited upon his footsteps
as I did fo'r two whole weeks.
Even at the end of that time I should
have gone on hoping, but for the faet
that, meeting Ella and her sisters iu
the street, her manner toward me left
no doubt as to her decision; for,
whereas the younger memb~ers of the
family were as friendly as ever, Ella's
manner was chilling to a degree. She
would not even look at 'ae, nor would
she shake hands when we parted.
I own I was thoroughly miserable,
and developed a faculty for caustic ep
igrams at the expense of the sex in
general, writing several stories, en
titled respectively, "Jilted," "No
Heart," "A Coquette's Conquest," etc.
Then, one dreary November day, I
met Mr. Barrington in the streets of
Richmond. He was unusually genial,
and insisted upon my coming home to
dinner with him.
"Never mind about dress," he said.i
"It is quite an unceremonious ocea-j
sion. And, to tell you the truth, I'

Ella leaves us to-morrow, as I suppose
you know, up)on her marriage with
my friend, Sir John Westbury, thej

No, I did not know, and I could
have gone homue and blown my brains
out. But, instead, I went to dinner
with him, feeling that I must see Ella
for the last time.

shanced to be passing it yesterday and
%7y attention was attracted by what
seemed at first to be a grasshopper
and a spider in conflict in the air. I
watched the object, saw it rise and
fall and rise again and finally settle in
che grass. Curiosity led me to follow
and examine it, and instead of finding
either a grasshopper, spider or any
living thing, I was astonished to dis
,over the most perfect natural, but in
animate flying machine I ever saw. It
was a leaf oblong in outline about
three inches in length and half an inch
in width. From a point at its center
a film two inches long hung down,
carrying at its lower extremity a
,ounter-weight or pendulum, that
served to keep the plane of the leaf in
the right reition to the air for travel
ing. The leaf was bent at such an
angle as you will find in the boome
rang, * and the whole formed a flying
machine which worked perfectly, for
when I threw it in the air it began to
whirl and actually sailed away on the
breeze, rising until it went out of
sight. When it had disappeared I was
sorry for letting it go, but at once
made a sketch of it, not knowing that
there were innumerable specimens of
the curiosity close at hand. While I
was lamenting the loss of my toy I
Looked at the ground and found sev
eral imperfect copies of the one that
had flown. Then it dawned upon me
that the formation was a device of
nature to spread the seed of the tree
and that the bulb at the extremity of
film was thae seed of the tree,
which ppose 's well known to ar
specimens found near the tree weg
not as symmetrical as the one that first
drew my attention and finally left me
so unceremoniously. The latter went
away with the ease of a bird and may
be flying still. It worked so well that
some ingenious person might find in
its lines the elements of a device that
could be made artificially and perhaps
assist in solving the problem of a fly
ing machine. "-Rochester (N. Y.) Post
'The sultan of Johoi'e.
A little party of Americans have
paid a visit to the Sultan of Johore,
and one of their number has given an
account of their expedition from
Sinapore, which presents some pict

Sultan sent out his State barge,
manned with Malays in canary-col

landing pier they were receivcd by
"the Illustrious Secretary of the
Sultan," whose title and name are
"Dato (Lord) Abdlull Rah man."
Hie is a Commander of the English
Order of Saint George and Saint
Michael, and is stated to speak Malay,
Chinese, English, French, and Ger
man with equal fluency. The Sultan,
who is said to have inherited the
other day from the late Sultana "a
million and a half of this world's
goos," appears from this narrative
to be a prosperous person. The hall,
approached by a marble reception in
which the company were entertained
at a banqiuet, is described as 150 feet

Nothing in modern times can equai

against John Quincy Adams. Personal
abuse was rife. Adams, the impecca
ble, the frigidly just, was accused (f a
varety of crimes, one of the least of
which was that he acted as a procurer
for the Czar of Russia. Clay was
branded as an unprincipled adventurer,
a professional gambler, a libertine nnd

A Singular Discovery.
James Smithers, an English resident
of Haliburton, Ontario, while out hunt
ing with a party of visitors from the
old country recently, met with a sin
gular adventure, which also led to as
I singular a discovery. A band of moose,

4 years, had been driven down by the
scouts of the expedition, and it was
' while in full chase of these that the
others swept on, leaving Smithers to

country, and was astonished all at once
to find himself sinking. He fell about

U injury. He was amazed to find the
is bottom of the pit composed of solid
a ice of a brackish taste and evidently of
I untold age. Walking about the pit
Smithers made out an object protrud

pis short hunting axe cut away the
purrounding material until he saw that

remains of the deer, which the hunter

The Greateyt fledical Discovery
of tnt Age.
DONALD KENNEDY, OF ROIBURY, MASS.,
Has discovered in one of our common
pasture weeds a remedy that cures every
kind of Humor, from the worst Scrofuls
down to a common pimple.
He has tried it in over eleven hundred
eases, and never failed except in two cases
(both thunder humor). Hie has now in
Ihis possession over two hundred certifi
cates of its value, all within twenty miles
of Boston. Send post'l card for book.
A benefit is always experienced from the
first bottle, and a perfect cure is warranted
when the right quantity is taken.
When the lungs are affected it causes
shooting pains, like needles passing1
through them; the same with the Liver
or Bowels. This is caused by the ducts
being stopped, and always disappears in a
week after taking it. Read the label.
If the stomach is foul or bilious it will
cause squeamish feelings at first.
No change of diet ever necessary. Eat
the best you can get, and enough of it.
Dose, one tablespoonful in water at bed
time. Sold by all Druggists.
