The world has lost a splendor From thestarry r ealms of sog; The voice whose thrilling sweetness Has charmed the world so long. E'en the lowly wildwood da isse As they nod on parles fee With misi the breuy hagrance Of her wonderoos melody. In woodland nooks and hollows, Where vioets shade their blue Will Nature shed her tear-drops In drops of crystal dew And starns that come out nightly, On the Armament o'ehead, Will shine in soter glory O'er the spot where she lies dead! But when Spring time brings the bowers, Looking upward to the sky They will speak with prophet voice Of her immortality. While beyond the snaset' pleador She will list with radiant eyes, And retune her heavenly lyre To the airs of Paradise. "SU! STOYI TELLEU." OUTGENEBRALED. T MAGGItz MasIGOLD. It was a cloady warm morning in June, and Mr. and Mrs. Pomeroy, a newly married couple, sat at their tiny breakfast table, lost for a moment in their respec tive newspapers. Jack and Gill, two gold-tinted canaries, sang joyously in their cages at the open window, and a mass of morning-glory vines, wet with dew, thrust themselves in at the breezy opening, laden with blue, and white, and pink blossoms. Mr. P. was devouring a thrilling anti woman's rights article, in the Eruption, by the editor, Mr. Katchumandakinum, whose wife had just made her debut in the arena of strong-minded females. Mrs. P. was anxiouly conning an adver tisement of "Lightning's Beard Accelle rator;' which promised to grow a fero cious mustache, in three days on face or hand, or money refunded; and had deci ded to surprise her liege-lord with a bot tle that very day. Mr. Pomeroy having followed Mr. Katchumandskinum through a series of like articles, and being now thoroughly imbued with the editor's opinion, cleared his throat, threateningly, glanced cau tiously across the table, and delivered himself of the following speech: SMints, I cannot love you as well when you read the newspapers." She didn't raise her eyes. "It is a good sign,"he continued, men tally, "she will do anything for my love." Then shoving his oofe-cup three inches to the right, and his chair as many back, he continued: "Like the rose that peeps over the gar den wall at the onion patch beyond, and partakes of its perfume, so woman looses her sweetness when once she steps from her proper sphere. Will my little wife be contented with her husband's love and leave the newspapers to coarser minds?" This last "coarser minds" was the su gar coasting that was tomake the pill go down easily. Mr. Pomeroy run his white fngers leisurely through his curls, rose slowly from the able, watching his wisfe's eounte nance, and taking his pet beaver from the rack at the door, brushedan atom of dust from its shiny rim. Imagine his chagrin when his dar ling Araminte, leisurely putting down her paper, msaid: "My dear Charley, I beg pardon, but 'pon my honor, I haven't hearda word you were saying. There I 'tis beginning to rain. You had better hurry sandget into a stage," walking him rapidly to ward the door. "Don't forget to seear seats for the moncert this evening, dear. Now don't look so amasd if the rain Ass caught you for one, befare you pget down town." Mr. P. pulled up his shirt-codar, bit his thin mustache nervously, sad depart ed with a quenced sir. "Id give a good deal to know whether she heard me," he muttered as he ran down the step. " Moral," chirped his youngrwife to her self, as she closed the front door, "hs bhands shouldtrain their hildren, but not their wives; also they aould bring them home interesting books, paper bo quet, sad aything else that wi tend to elevate their inerior sai--" Like a trme beniae this Meil l ' ~Yi 1 bettle; it s-es wM 0t &sstab that she was alone, this speck on their matrimonial horizon made her heart sink to sero. "What if Charley should grow fanatio al on the subject of rose-bud wives, with two ideas in their heads r"' he mused, anxiously. "Oh what shall I do?' Early in the afternoon, Dick Pomeroy, her husband's youngest brother, arrived, radiant in light green duck and gold mounted eyeglasses, with a three-corner ed note from his married brother, to the elect that he wanted to bringthree class mates home to dinner--nice old fellows, all married and settled-and Mints must look her prettiest. "But do tell a sympathizing !ehow what's the matter ?'ezolaimed the messen ger: "you look blue. Has Charley been kicking up a rowr "No, Dick, there isn't any storm, only one is threatening, I fear" and then she related the conversation at the breakfast table. ,'Now let's fix up this matter in short order, Minta," he replied, with a twinkle in his eyes, as he laid down his cane and hat on the longe. -"I can't stand eooly by and see either of you martyrized, or witness a play of the Kilkenny cats. Let's pat our two heads together. Surely the united forces of a couple such ought to upset the such an insignifieant young spooney as that husband of yours." *None of that sir. He's a magnificent darling creature, and I won't hear him abused. He's only afraid I will grow strong-minded, and the fear carries him to the other extreme." "Now," continued she, settling in acor ner of the sofa, 'if I had been born with any other hair in the world but red, and and a turn-down nose, I would enter the rostrum of Woman's Rights at once, and strongly advocate not voting, not holding office, not wearing an outlandish bloomer costume, not digging sewers, laying pipes, and running engines, as some delicate gentlemen pretend they fear we shall do, when they know we won't; but simply to change places with the lords of creation for one month. No longer. Oh, no-1'm not cruel Then let them emjoy having their reading prescribed to them. Throw the newspapers out at the back windows, and when they are hungry for brain food let them regale themselves on a skim milk fashion article, or a magazine story. Why do so many men try to make their wives think they are their inferiors intel lectually?" and the blue eyes flashed. "Afraid! afraid of 'em !" ejaculated the tall strippling, complacently examing his lauriant growth of black hair in the mir ror. "Only," continued Mints, "when Mr. High-and-mighty has been outwitted and quenched in an argument by some fair one; when he is driven to the wall with his brain at a stand or whirling in eddies, and only his gall in active play, does he acknowedge har his equal in intellect." "Hurrah for Pomeroy! Pomeroy for e-v-e-r!" laughed the young gentleman, tossing up his hat. "That isn't bad, Min ta Do go into the woman meetings, de pite the red hair, just to plague Charles." "Mercy!" ejaculated Mrs. P., "it is two o'lock, and I haven't thought of dinner. Clear the track quick and let me run to the kitche. Good-by!" she called gayly, as her heels rattled lightly down the stairs. Dinner time arrived, as did the guests, three tall, spare individuals, all lawyers, who eyed young Mrs. Pomeroy keenly, to asertain how Chadeys wife oompared with their own, and then fell to devour ing her superb cooking and addressing aB their conversation to her hsband. Minta Pomeroy was not only an ami able young lady, and a superior cook, but a high spirited reatmre; and this n gentlemaly teatment made her blood boe. "Do they think me a simpleto, 'd~be whispered to Disk, who st at her right hand. "Probably they bave married Uttle idots who l.t thI hud.adthiak an talk tL ibm," ha rlred. 'lIt's show th~m that C(harey's wi -knows..satingM a '' rt a stbjat, nd I' push it through." Minia' eyes lashed beneath hera drep ping lids, and at thl st la. i the on ver~i die. potey e,,amd the, e lammy ahaletim at hurlea, byjaquldag hw guld had dead that day. H leak . ..rprised, bt amwem- d , sad bs m,,.s t ,'eli s ,mes,, ,sh m r - the *iaLme moinm o at ~i d hands, the two drove a fast team, soon drawing in another lawyer, and finally the last, in eonpany with Mr. C. Pomeroy. Mints growing brilliant and attracting I theadmiringgae of herhusband's friends one of whom remarked to his neighbor I afterward, that Pomeroy had married a superb woman; not a beauty at all, bt a I perfect diamond of a wife. Her husband looked proud of her. This alone made Mints happy. He overheard Dick my softly to her in the hall: "I don't believe Charles will ask you 1 again to give upewspaper reading. You i talked like an oracle, Mint." "Then she really id hear me this morninge" gasped Pomeroy to himself ' and at his first opportunity hecsughther I and whispsered: "My star, I'll never ask you again to give up your reading. I am soproud of your conversational powers Youe were enchanting at dinner." To which she 4 replied only with a lovely blush, seeing one of the lank lawyers leaning towardi them, with eyes buttoned back with on- I riosty. "Haven't you two young people got over love-making yet?" he whispered 1 knowingly. WHY A MAN MEASumns MOE IN THE MORNING THAN IN THE EVENING, h. There is an odd phenomenon attending the human body, as singular as common: that a person is shorter standing than lying; and shorter in the evening when he goes to bed, than in the morning when he rises. Thi remark was first made in England, and afterwards confrmed at Paris, by Mr. Morand, a member of the Boyal Academy of Sciences in France, and by the Abbot Fontana likewise. The last-mentioned person found, from a year's experience, that ordinarily in the night he gained five or six lines, and lost nearly as much in the day. The cause of which effect, so ancienta so common, but so lately perceived, pro ceeds from the different state or condition of the intervertebral annular cartilages, The vertebrne, or joints of the spine. are kept separate, though joined by par ticular cartilages, every one of which has a spring. These yield on all ides, with out any indeion on the spine, to the weight of the head and upper extremi ties; but this is done by very mall and imperceptible degrees, and amos of all when the upper parts of the body are loaded with any exterior weight So that a man is really taller after lying some time, than after walking, or carrying a burthen a great while. For thisreason it is that, in the day and evening, while one is sitting or stand ing, the superior parts of the body tha weigh or press upon the inferior, press those elastic annular cartilages, the bony jointed work is contracted, the superior parts of the body descend towards the inferior, and proportionably as one ap proaches the other, the height of the statsre diminishe Hene it was, that a fellow emlisting night, was found deeist in beight, and . thehrefore refused; but by seedendt beingi ued again the azt mornin, and1 comi ngup to the statrs he wms admit ted. On the contrary, in the nighttime, when the body is laid s-bed, as it is in an horisontal sitrstiom, or nearly sos the perior parts do not weigh, or but very little, pon the inferior; thebs spring of the crtilages is mbeat, the vertebr are t removetd from one mother, the long a jointed work of the spine is dilated, a n the body thereby prolonged; so that a i peraon fnds himself about half an imahe s or more, higherin statur in themorning Ii than when going tobed.

HAVE CHILDREN ANT RIGHTS' GROWN PEOPLE ARE' BOUND TO RESPECT t That children hould respect their el ders is a maim profoundly and some timespain lympressd spoa n a youtb tulmind. Isinot equally the dutyof elders to respea te children? Ab rights a reeiproal. Nobody can fairly lam what he is not willing to coneede-or is the homely terms of the proverb: "it's a poor rule that won't work both ways. This is a sound principle having scarcely an exception. Certainly the relations of the juvenile and mature members of so iety do not o(r an exception. If grown personsemand respestfrom, they should also give it to children-not merely for the purpose of teaching by example, but from a sense of justice. In the rst place, children are hmsan beings and therefore entitled to the thoughtful consideration always due to humanity everywhere. Boys and Sirl are m mand women in embryo If you smuba boy or girl you mub the coming man or woman. Children are further entitled to repet for the essential im portsae of their social place and fun tions. Whatwould any age ornation be without its juvenile element? Children are at once a study and a discipline: a present strength and a promise iof future power. They are ornamental and useful. They brighten the leisure hours of life and they are an objects which stimulates its business pursuits. While accomplish ing a great deal of good theydlo far less harm in the worldd than their elders. Let nobody thoughtlessly call children nuis ances. Men are much greater nuisances. True, children are sometimes noisy and inclined to mischief. The child who does not develop those tendencies is unhealthful, phisicly, mentally and mor ally. But how much more noise men make, and how far more serious the consequence of their mischiefd Children do not plunge nations into war, shedding rivers of blood and clothing continents with mourning. Men do. Children do not misgover cities, States and empires for their own selfsh and ambitious par pose. Mendo. Children do not plunder thepublic trasury. Men do. Childrendo not maintain poiticalrailroed sad mining "rings" at the expense of the peoples, ad mate monopolies of a few for the op preseion of the many, so that a small number may grow rich while the masses starve Men do. Children do not com mit the great variety o individual and organised crimes, some of them venial and some of them infamous, from which soeiety sufers. Men do. The contrast might be illustratively amplifdled to any extent Whot, thn, are the real nuisances men or children? It might be shown that children are actually entitled to more consideration and respect than any other class o the community. Then let them be ene raged rather than ..ppree.
