THB OLD BLACK ■ LAMP.
IT stood no marble stand upon.
No crystals glittered 'round Its brim,
Ko silken shields wben day was done
Made shade for eyes waxed weak and dim.
Of antique form from metal cast,
A spluttering, black and wry-necked thing,
low down beneath the hickory Joist
It hung by rod and leather string.
It lightly swung an air-moored boat,
With dusty deck and flame-rUled prow;
(And smoky lard in the hold afloat
Supplied tbe wick that weighted the bow.
From finger-polished peg it swung.
And feebly fell Its flickering rays
On unhewn wall and door where hung
Outworn homespun of other days.
It smiled up red on bnckhorn racks,
Where fllnt-locn guns and ramrods lay,
And twisted hanks of new spun flax
That turned to sliver 'nealb its ray.
The fireplace shadows deep it searched.
The husking plus aud old sheep-shears.
And lace bits, time and finger smirched,
And yellow seed-corn ln the ears.
Heady It bong as years crept past.
And though they all have left their stamp
Of dents and stains, It hangs at last
The staunch, the willing old black lamp.

«■ f^ BE members of the Darkmeie Hunt had a
if Ih* 5 * (ileal lilting tor Squire Dent home of the
■Vl !a«i I'lange, a good-natured, bsrd-rldlng and
c?*?^ kindly, II choleric, old gentlemen. He
wis blessed with an only daughter, Mabel, who,
accustomed from childhood io do pretty well
what she iik-.i. was, perhaps, a little wilder and
self-willed than are must girls of 19. still, she
was sound to ihe very core, and was a favorite
Inst as much « ith her own sex as with men.
"Fearless in praising, faltering iv blame," she
was of si Chivalrous, geneious nature, easily
moved lo laughter or to tears. And being, to ad
dition to her mane accomplishments, au excel
lent rid i and devoted in hunting, what could be
. expected but mat tunny a goo.i fellow should fall
down and worship the lair chatelaine of the
Orange? Hut Miss Deuthoine was not so easy
. to i lease, ami every one m lie neighborhood was
' fiually extremely surprised lo learn that she had
become engaged, alter barely a mouth's ac
quaintance, to baud-vine lie .ice .Mowbray, a
man who bad quite unexpectedly come tutu his
. uncle's line place, Stallbrldge i'ark, close by,
and had vow fur the first lime set foot lv the
Ami, naturally, surprise might be expressed,
fur Mowbray— shy, taciturn and re.ervi-d—
S'eni d baldly the one to win the fancy of a
. blight. light-hearted girl. But mere the fact
was. snd li had iv be accepted. The squire was
well -.tii-I'.ed, and certainly the il.uigluei never
fit one moment even hluledlo hlm or to any one
that she in ihe very least regretted the step she
-had taken. As lor Mowbiay, worshiped the
gipuiid .Mabel trod on, and a more devoted
fiance no girl could have desiied. But be never
obiiuued hlm sell, and llicie seemed in him a
strength of purpose and a power of reserve that
. drew Mabel nearer and closer to him. And so
much was this the case thai she tried to put
aside many of her own particular whims and
laucics, and, to please ihe mau she honored
above all hers, endeavored to pallet v bei self
- on ins more staid demeanor.
Ihe strain was, however, too great to be
always kept up, and vow and then she would
I bleak out in her old, accustomed manner, and
i.e.. baldly undeislandlne. would look tin
-• in wonder, and theu, swiftly unbending, sltlveto
appieciate ibe happiness ol the jest or the
subtlety of the thought, and, almost against bis
o.iu ie lei Judgment, would Join in Ilie merri
ment of the moment.
One evening, wnen sltllug In tbeflrawlug-room,
"" alter a t.aid day wiiti the hounds, the squire all
of a sudden bethought mm of letters thai must
be nun, and strolled away, leaving the en
(aged couple v, inning themselves by the blazing
i.iv. It.c lights had been brought lv and the lea
things removed, aud -Mabel. still lv ber riding
habit, lazily leant back In her lounge chair, la a
hrwitci.'tii attitude of careless ease.
"I i.e." said Mowbray, bteaklug Ihe
chaiiiie.l silence, "my — an has brought over my
diess collies, and mat 1 must go aud get ready
"No, Ueorge, wait a bit. It's so jolly here, and
. I Halt) can't stir."
-As you like, darling. I don't feel much In
clined lo move mysell.''
"I've sou. lag lo show you," presently said
Mabel, with some Utile hesitation.
"Haveu'i I * eu it hetoie?"
"Siseu It ! No, 1 am sine you have not. By
. the by. 1 wonder, George, you never asked me if
1 had any — However,'' checking herself In
pint' contusion, "1 did uot mean that."
Mowhiay looked at her curiously, waiting for
any explanation she might deslie lo give. How
ever, she gave none.
"Well. sweetheart, what have you to show?"
"lru'il see 10-iiiunuw. lam going to surprise
My chief surprise Is," be rejoined, "that you
can see anything lv cue about tv me."
".Now would be the lime," she laughed, "to
pay you a very pielty compliment, but 1 shall
spate your blushes. Ah!" laklug up the Dally
.- Civij li.c. " here aie seme mote pictures of
won cv tiding en cavalier, I wouder bow 1

"Well, mis ol ladies tide like that. Is It not
lie case thai queens aud women ol ibe highest
lank have done so?"
< "That may he. But what has that to do with
tue mallei ? 1 can't uudeislanU how It would be
possible for a lady of any lelineiueul to adopt
such a costu inc."
••Ana how do you know (saucily) I am not
going 1., adopt .it' lam sure it would suit hie."
. "1 know, deal, yuu only joking; but 1 don't
like you even lo jest on such a subject-"
■* oust you wail here," said Mabel, rising as she
■poke, 'and I'll bouoi you with a private view,
all to jouisell, of bow 1 look in my new riding
dress, it will ptepure you lor to-morrow," and
so saying, beloie he could lemuuslraie sue ran
uul lie loom.
■ Mowbray more than half believed ibat what
bis fiancee bad said was all Jest, but mere was
also au uneasy suspicion iv Ins mind that he
might be wrong; and while be was still moodily
turning the mutter over the door was thrown
open, eaietully closed, and before him stood
' .\ii-s Deuthoine lv tue garb of Hie Darkmsre
—Uul— cap, bonis, hie dies and all!
"And how do yia tiuuk 1 loo* V" Inquired ihe
11..1 a-, i.r- giil, standing saucily before hlm, ber
bauds ou her hips, null a little mutiuuus expres
sion in her eyes.
Mowbray si. used up In dismay.
"I beg— l implore, .Mabel, mat you will at
once lake those clothes on," be passiouately
*• Wby should 1 ? They fit very well."
■ "It 1 have auy right lo speak— and surely I
have," be holiy said, "you will at ouce resume
youi owu dress."
"Are yuu nut rather premature?"' she replied,
wiih an sii.git movement oi her bead. "1 am
not bvuiic ,hai I bate yet given you authority to
dictate to me what 1 am to wear."
"II your onu good sense and ladylike feel*
-■■lug," be coldly made icjoiuder, "do not eouviuce
you ol the indecency—
" Slop, sir," said ihe now angry gltl, "you are
going 100 la.-. II lam anting, as you imply, in
fowl sense, lady-llae feeling, aud mo sense of de
cency, it .seems to me that we have botb of us of
iale Litri. standing on false ground."
"1 caunot withdraw one word I bave said.
.But, "label !" now changing Ills tone to oue of
eunealy, "surely you are only doing this to try

•■a in 1 to have no voice in what best suits
- me?" protested Miss Deuihorue.
" Good heavens 1 You don't Imagine that this
—man's dress suits you 1"
- Weil"— pretending to glance critically over
bei sell— think It suits me very well. And,
Just to puuisli you tor your rudeness, I shall
wear il at the meet 10-woiiow. .Now I what
bay you to say to that?"
"It seems," her lover coldly made answer,
"tbat we no must bave been laboring under a
mistake. I cannot pretend to tbe honor of
claiming alliance Willi a lady wbo can thus un

-- "ion are extremely rude." returned Mabel,
"And 1 am sure Ihat 1 don't want to Keep you lo
your engagement. At any rate, 1 will uoi con
sent lo be Use butt of your bad temper"; aud so
saying, she iefi the room.
Hutu ay once quitted the bouse, and Mabel,
who was a good deal agitated aod distressed,
said uotblngol what had passed to her lather,

One consoling thought occurred to Mowbray,
and It was that by coming late he bad been
stated all ihe cliaD and badinage which must
bave been Hying about when Miss Deuthoine
first appealed. Even ibis was a small mercy,
ana one to be grateful for.
Again tailing back, Mowbray kept bis eyes
vigilantly ou bis hancee, who was now quite
aloue, and clearing every obstacle that came
lv her way lv capital style. But, all! what is

Fuuuy stories by enumerators describing ibelr

Another woman was asked If she was married
" her." she replied; " I am a grass widow."
Another woman, who was young when me bay
came unto Montgomery slreet, was asked her
" I am just 20," she replied.
The enumerator paused with pen lv air.
"Hut, msidame," he expostulated, "you must
know that 1 cannot believe that statement."
" Young man, 1 am just 20."
"Oh, well." said the enumerator, proceeding
to write, "the law compels me, when l know
that a statement is untrue, to make an estimate
of my own."

Fruits, but they are yet green. Apricots are some
what riper but not fully ripe, however. Cherries aro
now In their zenith. They are plentiful and very
choice. Currants are also iv good supply. Many of
the strawberries come In poor.
In Vegetables, Garlic is cheaper and String Beans
Butter and Cheese are In heavy supply and cheap.
Eggs, on the contrary are higher, a choice article
being rather scarce.
Moats and Fish show no change. With the excep

New York. June 6.— The favorable influences ln
the stock market this morning were entirely neu
tralized by a demoralization In the sugar-refiners.
After the first hour the railway list became dull and
moved within very narrow limits. The recent ad
vance in the price of refined sugar created a strong
tone in the stock and a rumor that Spreckels bad
come Into the trust was the occasion of a rise of
about 4 per cent. Toward the close- the rumor was
denied and tbere was a sudden drop from 84 to
75 1 ,.., the business doing at that time being simply
enormous. The market closed rather heavy and
final changes, wbllo irregular and for fractional
amounts, only show a majority of the losses, and
Sugar Is down 2 1 4.
