Unable to prevail upon ber father to remain tosco the wonderful fire-works of the evening, which were lo be iu part celebration of a town festival, aud iu part a tribute of oue ot tbe moat noted of pyrotechnic artitts to bis promised bride, native of tbe sequestered mountain town where Eva lived unablo (o coax the good doctor to contradict (ho bubit of a lifetime and yield duty to pleasure, she watched bim drive off in bis familiar sulky. Doves of fire I She kept thinking of these words as she was dressing tbe chil dren, Josy and Joe, witb niaDy a pet phrase and a bit of advice for their con duct at tbe entertainment; aud tlion( having settled them witb a picture book, hastily dressed herself. How lovely she looked, when she came for them, in her white gown and while rigolclto aud light blue shawl I Off they went, band iu band, these three, through the village which wits al most deserted, to the bank of Cedar Creek, the see no of display, where (he courte was crowded. Hundreds of in congruous vehicles blocked the by-ways beyond, and the avenue under the wil lows aud great elms tbo Creek Road bordering tbe rippling stream, was thronged wilb knots of people eagerly clinging to some propitious tin ml point, or eagerly pressing to tbe edge of tbo trcaut, for a clear view of the spectacle they bad come miles to see. Eva Morrison I is this you! Tbe ques tion was a-Lcd by a rapidly moving and very intent young man, wbo catno sud denly to a bait. With bis arms full of mysterious-looking rocket frames, be was crossing tbe high road in the direction of a foot-bridge that bad been cast for tbe grand occasion across the creek to an ialand or sandbar, chosen for its valuable resources of isolation and water reflec tions for tbe scene of the fire-works. Is tLls you Tbe pronoun bad a pro nunciation aud emphasis intense in Ibe extreme. Eva darted, hesitated, and then cordially extended her baud. George Warner! How you've changed! This wa tbe involuntary exclamation ol ber lips. How yoa btve not changed! was ber on.poken thought, (o wbicb be replied aloud: Not changed to dear old Cedar Creek, nor to my friends here. Five years! Yes, it is some time tn a man's life and in a girl's life, too, Ea. These are my little pels, said Eva, pre senting Joy and Joe. Tbey were babies when yon were be. tieorge Warner kitted tbe children, and gave one long kitting look If ao a look may be described at Eva, and then said, btatily, lor tbe throng twsyed and wis pushing Ibcrn, Iet me find a good place for yoa all, as I must leave you.

Eva, whb ber little brotbr and sister, went borne. Sbo fancied tbat she beard a rapid step bvbiu.l ber, and within a few steps of the gate (ieorge Warner came to ber side. Just bclore tbe gate notice ablo as tbey turned into the dewey gsr den walk, stood old Dobbin and tbe emp ty sulky. Father has come borne, said Eva; and ao ebe tetit the children iulo tbe bouse, couGdotitoi the father' cure for them, aud herself lingered for a few moments on the plsm with George Warner. A few moments? Moro than tbat, for the midsummer evening, tbo midsummer Dioeting, enchained them. Aud thero was the manly ideal of her boyish lover, witb tbe film true eyes giving those lov ing looks, dear for the sake of couslancy ; aud there was Eva, more than the ideal of tbe dream George Warner bad cherished of her. Oa tbe piazza, sbo lcauing against tbe rose-trained trellis, bo on the stops beside her, they lingered and said so little afterward they regretted bow little but felt so much, and looked into each other' eyes so nincb, that was in cil'able; and theu at last whispered, Good night, lt was near midtiight. Eva went directly to the office, as tbcy called tbo Mlting-room or library tbat was, for Btndy or rest, ber father's famii' iar place. Ho was not there. Perhaps witb tbo children, she thought. No, not there. She found tbcm, wilb their little clothes carefully folded aa she had taught them, gone to bed, and fast asleep in oacb other's arms. With a sudden pang of anxiety, such as in all bis uncertain going and coming sho bad never felt be fore, she flew to ber father's bedroom. Not there. Not in the bouse; sho wont all through it. Not returned not como home I And yot there stood old Dobbin waiting at the gate; and the village subsided from its tumult, still as death. Perhaps summoned lo some place with in a door or two, and so left Dobbin, ex pecting to bo home in a few moments She tried to comfort herself so. Cou d not comfort herself so, for a wild misg'rv ing seized ber. But she waited waited for an hour. Every light In tbo village bad become extinguished; but it was clear starlight, and Eva ventured beyond the gate, and looked up and down the street. Not a sign of watching or mov ing. Another hour, and another, and then faint streaks of dawn. Dy (his timo Eva knew tbat some disaster bad fallen; the pang of it grew npon her moment by moment. Sho could endure it alone do longer.' She arouflcd a neighbor. Iuquiry was made. Tbo doctor was not iu the village. He bad been to see old Mr. Benton at nine o'clock, then started homo by the meadow road, which was followed in the search ; and tbere, just as tbe Fourlh-of-July bells began to ring over the town with tbeir clashing peals of freedom, tbcy found bim. lly tbe road-side, on tbe grseusward, in tbe attitude of slumber, wilb bis bead resting against his folded arm, and his face, so kind, so peaceful, with a smite npon the lips, as of happy dreams fast asleep; no, not sleeping dead. Prc-admouished, perhaps, by some fatal symptoms which a skilled physician would know, be bad dropped the reins lighted from (be sulky, given faithful old Dobbin (be freo way borne, and upon tbe grassy border of (he road be bad traveled so often laid himself down for the la( heart beating. So to the enchanting evening of the fire-works and doves of fire there came no morrow of love and happiness such as it bad seemed lo promise, but only tears aud mourning. Yet at the funeral, be side tbe opeu grave, as the most solemn words of burial were spoken, Eva felt, or renumbered afterward tbat she bad felt, oue meeting look of firm and manly eyes; one look that, comprehending ber angnisb, songhtto soothe it. Two days later tbe received a letter of condolenoe from George Warner, witb tbe postscript : I dare not intrude now upon your sorrow but when I visit Cedar Creek tgaln I shall claim tbe promise you gave to let me see you . Eva relaxed no tffort to perlorm ber daily round of duty. Joe and Josy knew uo change in ber w(cbful care; tbe or der of the household, under ber ceaseless industry, went on a ntual; but witb what faioiues of heart did tbe pursue ber patb, wbere thorns were knitted into every bedge row, and every foot-place, and every pillow! So summer passed, and October came, wilb its flaming glory; a miracle lo tbe ' mountain region wbere Ibe maple trees lage, and came fiowlag tbrough tbe wio- jdowsof Eva's cLamber, until, bright al- root a daj light, It aw alrr.td ber. j She awoke with a pleating ottion of j littenlng; ibe fancied b was epjoyleg i the singing of a torg, a delirious term- j aJe, aomewbere In dream-laud. Inj drcam-laad it mutt Lave been, for the actual world lo wbicb the awoke vat, still., j the lay awake lieteuiug to alienee unli1 j a ftrsoge sound attracted ber ear a tort , of whirring whi.per, not the sound of wind iu swsylng branches, nor of steal thy footsteps on tbe walk, nor murmur of distant voices. What could this si range sound be? And a fluttering light break ing through the calm moonlight, catling white spots upon (be wall. What could thete flickering light be? Attured tbat tbe was not dreaming, Eva aroused herself to go (o tbe window and look out. Two large maple trees j grew to near that tbeir widest branches almost loncbcd tbe window pane. Across tbe bare bcughs of theso trees flew In died cnrveJ, one after mother, wing spread birds, purple- and white, droppiug emerald olive branches from their golden beaks. Doves of fire! For a few moment, Eva, sbrinkiug back iulo tbo window recess, gazed al tbe apparition spell-bound, witb a sort of su perstitious awe. A tumult of thought rushed across ber braiu. Then she drew around her a shawl, the same blue shawl she bad worn tbo even ing of tbe fire-works, and which, useless now in deep mourning, she bad adopted as a wrap denuit. She cherished a se cret tenderness for this blue sbawl, for on tbat night, most memorable of all tbe nights of ber life, ber lover George Warner teemed to be ber lover theu I drew it around ber so caressingly. He held its folds for a moment in bis baud just beneath ber chin, wbtlo bis eyes gazed down npon ber wltb such content and such longing aud such deep devo tion I Thus veiled for tbo night air, Eva was about to fling open tbe window, when, bark 1 a rich tenor voice began a song. Tbo singing was at first so low, and ber thoughts were so tumultuous, that the words of tbo verses she hardly caught. Out of the last verse sbo distinguished every word: Fast silent tear were flowing, When aomcbinj stood bo'viind ; A htnd wt on my tbouUier ; I knew Its voice wa kitid. It drew me nearer, nearer ; We did not apeak ono word : For the beating of oar own lie-fit Wat all Ilia sou 1 1 we hoard. Eva, softly as a flower, pushed up the wiudow sash tnd looked out. Bridging the maple trees, she saw quite clearly in the moonlight tbo telrgrapb-liko wires on which tbe doves bad ridden. And al tbe foot of one of tbe trees, iu tbe attitude of a singer pausing between verses, wilb bis arm folded upon bis breast and bis eyes downcast, she saw Gcorgo Warner. Did be raise his eyes suddeuly and see ber? She did not know, tbe retired so hastily. Sbo crept back to her bed, and waited for perhaps another song. There came none; do more reflections fluttered on tho wall: and Eva lay till morning wrapped iu a waking dream, a blissful waking dream, for surely something pcacetul bad crept nestling beneath ber sorrow. Doves of fire! I do not know why I think of them so ofien. Tbey seem to rue to be more than fire-works ; more than clouds of sunset. Tbey scera to be Inteli gent, typical. These were Eva's words, and sbo was speaking to George Warner. It was the evening after the November serenade, and tbey were alouo together, Ibe children baving been gone to bed an hour alone together, iu tbat room of tbe bouse felt to be most sacred, onco the good doctor's resting room and study, and where now, if the father's thoughts could revisit tbo beloved scenes, tbey would certaiuly linger iu blessing. Tbo curtains were drawn, a sparkling wood fire blazed on the wlclo beartb, tbe lamp was turned low, and into tho fire light waa drawn tbe old-fasbioned square sofa, so tbat George and Eva could rest side-by-side, witb baud clarped fondly in each other's; for evidently they were lovers. intelligent aud typical they may be, Eva, said Gcorgo Warner, thoughtfully. I remember at tbo time of Ibe Cedar Creek lire-works I bad a fanciful reflec tion about tbe doves. 1 have forgotten exactly what it was, but I know it wa suggested by the comparative costliness of tbe carrier birds and Ibe emerald leaves in tbeir beaks. Oue olive-branch was worlb more than a flock of doves. And tbey are typical. Whether tbe doves mean sorrow or joy, tbe olive-brsncb means peace. Peace, dear Evs; that Is what I think life msy Lave in store for ns. Perfect bsppiness we cannot expect ; we are both schooled to something be sides tbat; trials mutt come. In taking yoa away wilb me lo our little bouse in the city I know yoa will miss your coun try borne, your garden, your friends. Yoa will btve me Instead. Yes, Evs, i yoa will bave me. He was answering a look of Eva's. But, dearest, it lt not at if I were a rich man, and could btve everything just as I want it for my dsr ling wife and dear liit.'e Joe and Josy, and surround you witb every luxury tbe world can give. And yetaud yet. He was answering another look of Kva's, o eloquent of calm and trust and tbe per fect love catling out fetr that, wilb tbe , strong thrill of bis heart responded lo the ; joy tnd tenderness tbat filled bis toul, j bis voice faltered. He snswered ber look wilb silence one of those long si lences tbtt lovert know.

Empty out tbo apples upon tbe floor, iu tbe cornor of the room. I've doue It, sir. Now take tho basket to tbo wood pile and fill it half full wilb pine chip dirt. What shall I do with it then? Bring it to me. Charles wsa In tho habit of tbo most Implicit obedience lo bla fathei's com mands. He therefore half filled tbe basket with tbe dirt of tbe wood pile, aud brought it to bia father, without any delay. Hero is tho basket, lather. Well, now put in tbo apple. Charles piled ou (be apples lilt the basket would bold do more. it will not bold them, sir. Will Dot bold tbcm? But it did be fore. Pile them on. Charles piled up tho apples at long as they would stay on, aud said: It will not bold them all, sir. Pilo tbetn on. Pile tbcm on. It held tbcm all before. Yes, father, but now tbe basket Is ball full of chip dirt, Ah, my son,tbore's the mischief. When a basket is ball full of chip dirt, lt will not bold a basket full of apples. You have beeu filling your mind wilb those chip dirt stories, and bow do you think you can tbeo fill it wilb arithmetic and spoiling. How many volumes of Oliver Optic's books bave you read?. I bave read them all, sir. Aud bow many dime novels bave you read Ibis winter? I don't know sir; I thiuk about a dozen. What papers do you read ? The fireside Companion, Tbo Boys of New York, aud Tbe Boys' Own. Well, my son, tbat basket must be pretty nearly full of chip dirt, and bow do you supposo you can pl'e on tbo arith metic? I never looked upon it In tbat light bo fore. Well, my boy, take tbe chip dirt back to tbo wood bouse and see if tbe basket will bold tho apples theu. Charles quickly left tho chip dirt out side and filled the basket witb tbo apple. Does it bold them now? Ob, yes, sir. It holds tbcm all now. Well, my son, it will not be so easy to empty tbe chip dirt from your mind. But I caution you not to put auy more In. Charles uuderstood tbo meaning of this. It was a good example of object teaching, and the next term, although It cost Urn many a severe tffort to keep sway the chip dirt, bis record was far less unsatisfactory, it is to be hoped that Charlie will yet crowd out chip dirt from bis mind by filling lt with tbe good aud tbe true.

Tbe caterpillar bat left bis den, tbe mosquito bas turned overiu bed and uttered a warning shriek, aud big green worms are skylarking around on shade trees and belting on tbeir chances of dropping down behind a man's coat collar. Another Interesting lawn game is play ed as follows: At (be supper table tbe wife remarks: James, I want ten dollars to fix up my summer tilk. Don't go away without leaving it. James snakes no reply, bnt manages to tlip out of tbe boute unseen. He Is steal ing softly across tbe lawn to Jump over the fence at the corner, wben bit wife comes rushing out and exclaims: James!

JOSH UlLl.lMi O IIKS.U. 1 have finally cum to tbo conclusion that lager beer is not Intoxication, I bavo been told by a German wbo aed be had drunk it all nito long, Just to try experiment, aud was obliged lo go home entirely sober In tbe morning. I bave seen tho same man drink eighteen glasses and if bo was drunk lt was In German, at nobody could uudurataud lt. It is proper euull'to state this mau kept a lager beer saloon, aud could btve no object in slating what was not thus. 1 believo bim lo tbe extent of my abili ty. I never drank but three glasses of lager iu my life, and tbat made my bead outwist as though It was hung on the end of a string, but I was told tbat it was ow ing to my bile being out of place; but I guess it was so, for I never bllcd over wus than I did when I got homo that nito. My wile thot I was going to die, aud I was afraid 1 shouldn't, for it seemed as tbo everything I had ever eaten In my lifo was coming to the surface; and I bo Hove that If my wife hadn't pulled off my boots just as she did, tbey would bave cum tbuodcrin' up too. O, bow sick I was! fourteen years ago, and I cau taste it now. I uevei bad so much experience la to short a time. If auy ono shud tell mo that lager bocr was not Intoxicating, I shud bolieve bim, but if be shud tell mo that I wasu't drunk that nito but that my stummlck was out of order, I tbud ask bim lo slate over a fow words Just bow a man felt and acted when bo was set up. If I wasu't drunk that title, I bad sum of the most natural slmtums that a man ever hail and kept sober. In the first plauo It was abeut eighty rods from where 1 drank tho beer to my house, and I was just over two hours ou tbe road, snd a bole busted thro each ono of my pantaloon neez, and I didn't bav auy hat, and tried to open the door by the bell pull ami biccuped awfully aud saw everything in tbe room trying lo get round ou tbo back side of me, aud slltin' down ou a chair, I did not wait long ciiutr fur it to gut ex&ctly uuder me wbeu I was going round, and I set down a lit tle too soon and missed tbo chair about twelve Inches, and couldn't get up soou e u ti ti' to take the next one that cutn along; and that ain't awl my wife ted I wis drunk as a besst, and, as I sed before, I began to splu up thing freely. II lager beer ain't intoxicating, lt used me moat almighty mean that I know. feliil, 1 hardly think that lager beer it intoxicating, for I have been told to ; and I am probably (be only mau wbo ever drank any wben bit liver wtt not plump. 1 don't want to say anything against a harmless temperance beverage, but if I ever drink tny moro it wilt be wltb my bauds tied behind and my mouth pried open. 1 don't think Itger beer it Intoxicating, but if I remember rite, I think it tatted to me like a glast ol totp suds that a pickle btd been put tew totk la.
