THROUGH THE WHEAT.
ToRPthrr we walked in the evening tini",
Above us the
sky
spread golden clear.
And he bent his head and looked in
my
cj-es,
As if he hold ine of all most dear.
Oh, it was sweet In the evcnine lime!
And ourpathway went throuph fields ot wheat:
Narrow that path, and rough the w:»y,
But he warf near, and the birds sunn true,
And the stars cam*- out in he u I iiirlit gray,
Oh, It was sweet in the evening tmiei
Boftly he spoke of the days long past,
Softly of blessed days to be:
Close to his arm, and closer I pressed,
The corn-Held path was Kden to me.
Oh, It was sweet in the evening time!
Grayer the light grew, and grayer still.
The rooks flitted home through the purple
shade,
The nightingales Rang where the thorns stood
high,
As 1 walked with hfni in the woodland glade.
Oh, it was sweet iu the evening tiicel
And the latest cleams of daylight died
My hand in his enfolded lav
We swept, the di-w from t!i- wln-at as we passed,
For narrower, narrower wound the war.
Oh, it was sweet in the evening time
He loooUed In the depth of my eyes, and said:
"Sorrow and gladness will come to us, sweet.
Hut together we'll walk through the fields of
life
Close as we walked through tho fields of
wheat."

Aunt Beeny is

as snow, and there are countless
wrinkles on her small yellow face. 15ut
her lit tie figure is as erect and neat as
wlien she was a girl of sixteen.
She sits all day in her chair at the
door in the sun, looking at the sea, and
the fields, and the deserted quarters
which once were filled with her
brothers and children and kinsfolk.
8he alone is left. Hut the strangers
who now own the old plantation are
kind to her.
It is not hard to persuade her to talk
of "the twins." livery, child she sees
reminds her of them. They are child

"Dah was jes' de twoob 'em—Marse

"So's dey growed up, some ob de foik

"An' two weeks after dat I buried her.
"When de wah war ober, Marse

"So Marse Charles, he got two rooms

Invention of the Com p.m.
The valuable invention of the com
pass is involved in mystery and. its real
discoverer is unknown. Lafiteau, in his
history of the Portuguese discovery in
the New World, says that Vasco da
(Jama brought it to Lisbon from the
coast of Africa, on his return from Me
linda, where ttie Arabs then used it,
and he believed the Portuguese to have
been until then ignorant of it. Some
attribute it to Flavia Gioja of Amalphi,
about the year l.'SW while others again
are of the opinion that the invention ii
due to tho Chinese, and that one of their
emperors, a celebrated astrologer, was
acquainted with it eleven hundred and
twenty years before the Christian era:
nor have others again been wanting who
have supported the opinion that it was
known in tho time of Solomon. The
ancient Greeks and Romans are also
supposed by some to have used it, but
the silence of their historians on this
subject renders this statement doubtfuL

DUELING IN GERMANY.
Ir»fedlM That Have F.voked Something
I.ike Wholpnome Uetriioition.
Two deplorable cases of death bv
dueling have recently occurred at medi
cal schools in Germany. To one of
these attention has already been drawn
that of tho "candidatus medicus" of
Wurzburg, Paul Fleurer, who fell at tho
third interchange of pistol shots, after
wioe holding out the hand of reconcilia
tion to his implacable adversary. What
action the local authorities, academic or
civic, have taken or mean to take to
bring to justice the homicide or the
"court of honor" who aided and abetted
him, wo have yet to learn but we shall
indeed bo surprised if the. Wur/.burg, or,
for that matter the German, public rest,
satisfied with the condemnation of the
proceeding delivered o.v the chief oramr,
if not the chief mourner, at poor Floor
er's funeral, that ho was the victim of
an "unfortunate nrevailing prejudice.''
Meanwhile, we areglal to see that a
similar tragedy at Freiburg has evoked
something like wholesome retribution
from a German law court. According to
the Algemeine A-iiung, of Munici the
duel in which the '•candidal us medicus"
Solomon lost his life has bad the conse
quence that the "hero" of tin* encounter,
"the student Bering, has been con
demned to two years and three months'
fmpnsonmfeat, wbilo *.Uo members of
tne oo« of honor i,sve alvi been sent
to jail for a period of six mou:'ni each."
We hope that similar sentences on the
part of the legally constituted tribunal*
of Germany will put an end to a prac
tice which is virtually satlra on their
own efficiency. For Vtl.21 nurpose do
law courts oxijst if not to consider o,.i
Bottle such differences as these so re
cently referred to the arbitrament of
s»vorl or pistol? The Kmpcror William
has adopted measures to abolish duel
ing in tho German army. Are theiyii
versities, in which the Fatherlf.nd tam a
*n even greater pride, to Jag behind tho
military service, and to cherish a tra
dition handed down from times when
reason and right had no better arbiter
than force? Were the results less la
mentable the more civilized world would
find something ludicrous in a practice
w.iif'h makes the legal and medical
schools of (termany the theater of en
