The while my mother hummed an ancient son*
Or sighed a little and said, -The hour is sweet.'*
When I, rebellious, clamored ior the light.
But now I love the sort approach or night,
Aud new with folded hands 1 sit and dream;
While all too fleet the hours of twilight seem;
And thus I kuow that l am growing old,
O granaries of age! <> manifold
And royal harvest of the common years!
There are iv all their treasure-house uo ways
But lead by sott descent aud gradual slope
To memories more exquisite tha:: hope.
Thine is the iris hnrn oi olden tears.
And tliil' c more happy are the happy dayi
That l:ve divinely lv thy lingering rays.
So autumn roses bear a lovelier ilower;
Ko, lv the emerald after sunset hour.
The orchard wall and tremb lug aspen trees
Appear an infinite iiesperldes.
Aye. as at dusk we sit with folded hands,
Who knows, who cares ln what enchanted lands
We wander while the undying memories throng?
When I was young the twilight seemed too long.

A CASE OF KISSING.
BXfjRTEXTR POYNTZ, a good-natured,
w5_S-v thoughtless young limn, lived with
4aU his uncle in the little west-country
tov. n of Clieeseboroutth. His relative was a
brotideloth manufacturer on a large scale,
and i'oyntz was learning the business, with
a view to succeeding the old gentleman
when he retired. The young follow was
very popular among his contemporaries in
the neighborhood, by whom ho was gener
ally voted "a good sort." But he had one
foolish weakneei, which caused his friends
much amusement, namely, an ambition to
_» considered a lady-killer; and many were
tlte boastful talcs he would relate to them of
his triumphs with the fair sex. Any
stranger hearing his stories, and bi-ing igno
rant of his real character, might have sup
posed that l'oyulz was a regular Don Juan.
Hut tlio troth was that he was the most
bashful of mortals imaginable, and could
scarcely be got to open his mouth iv the
presence of girls, This circumstance, of
course, made liis braggadocio stories all the
more amusing. Aud while some of his
friends would openly scoff at tbem, others
would affect to credit them and draw him
on, just for the fun of the thing. Prominent
an.oug these latter was l'ercy Cuttle, a
larky young solicitor, and junior partner iv
tbe eminently respectable firm of Cuttle &
bin. Consequently I'oyntz made liiiu his
cliief ci.uli-ant, and would often call iv at
his rooms to talk over his affairs ducieur
One evening Cuttle, arter a hard day at
the oflic, was lazily smoking his meer
schaum in his armchair when I'oyntz paid
him cue of these visits. The lawyer saw at
once, by his friend's face, that lie had some
thing to communicate; but, affecting not to
notice it^ he bade him take a seat and quietly
han itd ihe totiacco-jar to him. Poynlz
liileil and lighted his pipe. Then, alter
heaving a deep sigh and expelling a huge
cloud ol smoke irom his lips, he exclaimed :
" 1 say, l'ercy, old nan, 1 met such a
pretty gtil just vow— such a devlish pretty
■ -Ob, Indeed," said Cuttle gravely.
" Down by 1-iddleforni," answered I'oyntz.
"I happened to meet her just wheru the
light ol a lamp fell upon her face, an.l, 'pon
my life, it wu.uueol tiie prettiest facts I
ever saw !''
" That's saying a good deal for you,
Poynlz," Cuttle replied, with a gravity that
was almost suspicious, " for you're about as
critical a judge of a pretty face as musk fel
lows I know."
" Well, really," said the other, accepting
the compliment in perfect go d faith ami
complacently stroking tils ln.ipieiil mous
taches, "1 Hatter myself that 1 have bitter
ta^te upon the subject than most chaps have.
But this girl, Percy, 1 wish you could bave
sieu her. you wi old have losi your heart to
her on the spot!"
"You don't know who the siren is?" in
quired his friend. "What station did she
appear to he ol !' Not a lady, of course?"
" 1 suppose she cannot have been— quiie!"
Poyntz answered, "else she would not have
been walking alone at tbat time if night.
But the was au uncommonly stylish young
won. an, and had a uccideuly 'bauds oil' air
"Well, what happened?" asked Cuttle.
" Bid you follow he to see where she lived?"
"Yes, 1 did turu round aud follow her,"
Poyntz admitted. "And then — but you'll
not breathe a woid of this to auy one, will
"Bather not," bis companion pri.niised.
"Mum's the word with me, my boy. Go
on; 1 am dying tn knew what happened."
"1 followed her, as I toid you, resumed
Poynlz, "and kept just behind her for a hun
dred yards or so. Mie heard my steps, 1
suppose, for she turned round and looked at
me. And, 'pon my soul, her face was so
awfully captivating, that damme if I could
resist ratcniug her up and aeeostiuu her.
And, iv about a brace of shakes— I had some
liquor on board, you know— l stole a kiss
from her ."
">'cvci!" ejaculated Cuttie, taking bis
pipe trom his lus and elevating liis rye
brows till they nearly touched his hair.
"You dou't say so? And how did the young
woman take it?"
"For a moment or two," Poynlz replied,
"she seemed too much surprised to do any
thing. Then sue drew herself up very
haughtily and walked quickly off!"
"1 don't wonder at that, alter your con
founded cheek!" remarked Cuttle. "You
oidn't follow her any farther, I presume?"
"Oh. ye?, I did !" returnedTi -yntz. "I de
termined 1 would find out whtru she lived;
so 1 walkid in behind her, at some little
distance, until 1 saw htr turn into a bouse
In Sepulchre lave. 1 mean to hung about iv
that neighborhood agaiu to-morrow even
ing, in the hope of renewing my acquaint
ance with her."
"1 sayl Be careful what you're doing,
Poyntz, my hoy," said Cuttle seriously, "else
you'll be getting yourself into a nasty
"Oh, I'm not afraid, old fellow," Poyntz
answered lightly. "I'm quite capable of
taking care ol myself."
'Well, to do you justice, I think you are,"
assented Cuttle. "Mill, kissing strange
young ladies in the street is rathor a dan
gerous practice; and, If 1 were you, Poyntz,
1 should be devlish careful."
"All right," returned l'oyulz, with nn In
difference which showed that he thought
his friend's advice unnecessary. "Never
fear for me; I'm not a boru fool, you
It was on the tip of Cuttle's toiiguo to
retort that he was not at all sure of that.
But he pulled himself up on the verge of
saying it, and led the convorsatiou to other
topics, whicli they discussed for the rest of
the evening. After l'oyulz was gone Cut
tl- lay back in bis armchair, a curious
smile playing about his lips. An idea had
occurred to hi in whicli the more he enter
tained. Of course Poyntz 's story about the
kissing affair was all romance. What fttu
it would be then to serve him with a sham
summons for assault, and frighten him into
confessing that he had been simply drawing
on his imagination. The young solicitor
pictured to himself Poyntz's face on receiv
ing the summons. lie was of a timid dis
position, and would certainly be frightened
out of bis wits by it: more especially as his
u_cle, Mr. Goatboy (who, by the way, was
Chairman of the local bench of magistrates),
was a rigid Puritan, and a man likely to es
teem kissing a most deadly offense against
The longer be dwelt upon the notion the
stronger grew Cuttle's desire to carry it out.
He would have no difficulty in getting hold
of a summons form, for his father was clerk
to the magi-trates, and all summonses were
issued from his oflice. But the worst part
of it was that bo would have to lorge tho
sign manual of a J. P. to the document.
And this was so obviously risky that it
nearly made the young lawyer abandon his
design altogether. Indeed, if the practical
joke bad not taken such a strong hold upon
his fancy, he would probably bave done so.
But bis love of fun got the better of his judg
ment, and he decided to ehauee it. In fact
(«o he told himself), provided he stopped the
affair in time, ss lie could easily do, there
was no appreciable risk involved.
Next morning, on reaching the office,
Percy proceeded to carry out his design. lie
procured a summons form, which iie filled
up in the regular terms, calling upon Arthur
Poyutz to appear and answer to the cnargo
'"Ihat he did violently und unlawfully as
sault Amelia- Seragg by kissing her, etc.,
etc." (we need hardly say that he urew
upon his imagination for the young lady's
name; and nt the foot of this document he
cleverly Imitated the signature of a local
Justice, who was going to leave Eugland
next day on a Continental trip, and stamp, d
it with the official seal. The next step was
to get the summons served. About this
there was no difficulty. De merely had to
take it uu to the police station, and band It
over to one of the constables, which te ac
cordingly did, and bad the satisfaction of
seeing tho man start off to serve it, entirely
unsuspicious of humbug. The young law
yer then strolled back to the office, chuck
ling to himself, as bis imagination conjured
vi- an amusing piciure of poor Poyntz's
dismay upon receiving the summons. "1
wiil keen up the hoax," he soliloquized,
"until this time to-morrow. It will Dot be
safe to carry it ou longer than that I Poor
Poyntz l How awfully savage he will be
with nic if he finds out that 1 am the perpe
trator of it!"
" The following morning, however, Percy
Cuttle was unexpectedly called away to a
neighboring town on busiuess, which occu
pied the greater part of tho day; so he did
not get back to Cheeseborougb till late in
the afternoon, As he passed up the stairs
his father, the senior member of the nnu,
put his head out of his otiue door and called
"I want to say a word or two to you on
rather a serious subject," he began gravely.
"That yiiinm Poyntz lias eot himself into a
nasty scrape with a girl. He came here this
morning to consult me. and I spent nearly
two hours in Inking down this statement nf
his." As he spoke old Cattle pointed lo the
numerous sheets of "draft" with wlii'h liis
desk was littered. ''1 could ill afford the
time, either; for I was already behindhand
with that Dickson settlement. Hut the poor
young fellow was in such a state of mind
about it that 1 felt obliged to take pity on
him. Indeed, it is a serious matter ! Ue
has been suuiuioued for assaulting a girl by
violently ki.sing her 111 tho street. And
ahotild he be convicted of the offense it
will mean, if not social ruiu, at any rate con
siderable social disgrnve, so far as this neigh
borhood is concerned !"
.Fortunately old Cuttle happened to keep
his eyes upon his desk while lie was speak
ing, nnd so the womlerstriick. dismayed ex
pression of hi 3 son's face escaped bim.
That young gentleman had never bar_ained
lor this; nud there was no denying that he
was very much Uabbergastcd. No doubt
his wisest course would have been to con
fess the hoax to his father M once, but, un
fortunately, he could not find tiie courage
to do so. Old Cottle was a particularly
severe, matter-of-fait old gentleman, who
hated practical jokes of auy kind. And
a practical joker, who tampered with the
sacred process of the law, made a fool of
him (old Cuttle), and wasted some hours of
his precious time, was especially calculated
to rouse his direst wrath. £v, iusteail of
letting the murder out, young Cuttle asked,
with as much surprise iv his tono as he
" Who is the girl? Did Poyntz really
" Sl.e is a stranger— by name, Amelia
Scragg," replied his father, solemnly.
" l'oyulz swears to me that lie did not kiss
her, or even try to do so. Uo merely fol
lowed her for a hundred yards or so, and
just aocosled her; but, when she rounded
ou him, aud want.d to know what ho meaut
by It, he at once retired, and annoyed her
Percy experienced a strong sense of inter
nal amusemtut, as he heard how 1 tie boast
ful Poyntz had been forced to tone down
the story of liis gallantry ; but this feeling
of amusement was soon driven out by the
greater dismay which his father's next

TO BUY A NEW HOME.
The Salvation Army Negotiating
to Thai End.
Gaining a Piim Fooiirg on the Paciflo Coait.
Hew Stat ors Bci-ig Established at
The purchase of a valuable piece of real
estate with a three-story brick building, to
be used as a general headquarters for the
Pacific Coast Division of the Salvation
Army and for a women's training garrisou,
is one of the probabilities of the near
future, and negotiations looking to that end
are now under way.
With a view to ascertaining something of
their plans in this connection, a Call
representative paid a visit yesterday after
noon to John Milsaps, editor of the War
Cry, the official organ of the army. Iv
answer to a number of interrogatories con
cerning the status of the organization in
this city and Its prospects for the future, he
"The Salvation Army has been compelled
to struggle with great persistence in order
to obtain a fooling on this Coast, but thanks
toourhaid and continued exertions we are
at last established on a sound basis, and can
now lay permanent plans for tho future.
You ccc this is the central station for tbe
entire Pacific Coast Division, which includes
the States of California, Nevada, Oregon,
Washington and Idaho and the Territories
of Aiizona and Utah, All our operations
are directed trom this city, aud the constant
extension of our organization necessitates a
great deal of routine work, which requires
the services of a goul many people, who
must he lodged and led.
'• By Christinas we expect to have fifty
stations in operation, and will immediately
proceed with tho organization of some ten or
fifteen more. Of course all this will add
greatly to tbe amount of work to be per
lornied at headquarters, aDd rb our accom
modations are already insufficient we have
been compelled to lock abjut for a new
WIU, BUT A IIOME.
"After carefully considering the matter
we bave deemed it best to purchase, instead
ef renting, and we ate now negotiating lor
a piece of property on whicli is locaied a
substantial three-story Urick building that
will provide ample room for all present
needs. The location of the property Ido
not fee] at liberty to divulge at present."
" Would you mind stating what financial
provisions have been made for meetiug this
expense?" was asked.
" Any statrinent of that nature would, I
fear, tend to vitiate the negotiations, but 1
can saj that we do not, as a rule, seek to
make purchases without being prepared to
meet whatever outlay may be involved, if
we purchase property, as we expect to, we
shall pay for it. 'ihe building we have in
mind, however, would answer only tempo
rarily, and it is our intention to erect a
builuing of our own within the couree cf a
liUII.DIXG JS ENGLAND.
"Now iv England, for example, the Sal
vation Army is erecting buildings of their
own at the rate of thirty a month, all of
stone aud of the most substantial nature.
They have in London an architectural de
partment, whicli supplies all the nlaus and
the members of which superintend the work
of const! uction. In this couutry, however,
and especially on Ihe Pacitic Coast, we have
hardly progressed so far, although a building
has just been completed in New York City
at a cost of fcno.oon. to be used as head
quarters for tte Eastern divi-ion.
"On this Coast we have acquired two
pieces of property— one iv Grass Valley and
the other in Oakland— which cost us several
thousand dollars, and which have been fully
paid for. 'ihe projected purchase here,
therefore, is uot an entirely uew idea.
"in tins city we have beeu making rapid
progress of late, aud while 1 am not pre
pared to say just Low many i-oidiers we have
here at ttie present time, I should venture
the opi n ion that there are lv die neighbor
hood uf 1.5, acting in various capacities.
They are divided among four stations, aud
the erection of anew building would have
no bearing upon them, as tbey would re
main distributed at present, while only
those connrcttd with division work would
be stationed at headquarters.
"We have been arranging for some time,
by the way, for the establishment of a new
branch of work I. ere, which will be inaugu
rated in a short time. Tl c object will be to
rescue fallen womeu, and to this we will de
vote a great deal of our hardest exertions.
This we can do more easily since we have
abandoned 'slum work' in this city. The
latter we found unprofitable, atter a brief
experiment, owing to the fact that there is
no absolute poverty here, as in the laiger
ctiies of the Eastern Stales aud Europe."

I WILS HOWARD IB JAIL.
The Notorious Desperado Traced to a
According to a letler just received from
Detective Imboden of Missouri. Wils How
ard, the famous Harlan County desperado,
Is out of harm's way for a while at least
Imboden states that after Howard's flight
from Kentucky, little ninre than a year ago,
he followed him up in order to arrest and
bring him to trial in Missouri on the cliarg«
of murdering a deaf-mute in that State two
years ago. He finally trailed him to Cali
fornia, to which State he recently went after
him, only to tint! that ho had Deen sentenced
to the penitentiary, under the name of John
Brcoks, for a term of eight years for rob
bing the Wells- Fargo Xx i less Company.
The Governor wants Governor Burkiier of
Kentucky to join the Governor of Missouri
in requesting the return of Howard to Ken
tucky or Missouri, in both of which States
he is wanted for murder. Governor But-k
--ner, however, will probably take nn action,
as he thinks eight years In the California
Penitentiary may lire Ihe blood-thirsty
spirit of Wils. Alter his term is cut he cau
be arrested and brought back here.
Will Jennings, the partner of Howard in
n dozen or so murders in the Harlan County
feud, has just been sentenced to imprison
ment for life in this State. Howard was
arrested at the time Jennings was, but got
away from the officers.— Louisville (Ky.),
