YOV KISSED ME.
You kissed me! my head had dropped low on
your breast,
With a feeling of shelter and infinite rest.;
While the holy emotion my tongue dared not
speak,
Flushed up like a flame from my heart to my
cheek;
Your arms held me fast—Oh ! your arms
were so bold,
Heart beat against heart iu that passionate
hold ;
Your glances seemed drawing my soul through
my eyes,
As the sun draws the mist from the sea to tbe
skies;
And your lips clung to mine till I prayed in
my bliss
They might never unclasp from that raptur
ous kiss.
You kissed me! my heart, my breath and my j
will,
In delirious joy for the moment stood still : j
Life had for me then BO temptations, no
charms,
No vista of pleasure—outside of your arms ;
And were I this moment an angel, possessed
Of the glory and peace that are given the
blessed,
I would fling my white robes unrepioingly
down,
I wduld tear from my forehead that beautiful
crown.
To nestle once more in that haven of rest,
With your lips upon mine and my head on
your breast.
You kissed me! my soul iu a bliss so divine,
Reeled and swooned like a foolish man drunk
en with wine;
And I thought 'twere delicious to die then, if
death
Would but come while my lips were yet moist
witE your breath ;
'Twere delicious to die, if my heart might
grow coid.
While your arms wrap me round in that pas
sionate fold
And these are the questions I ask day and
night,
Must my life taste but once such exquisite de
light?
Would you care if your breast were my shel
ter as then ?
And if you were here, would kiss me Bgain ?

THE TABLE-ORDER and ORNAMENT.
It was Dickens, we think, who said he
could always judge of tbe character of a hotel
by the condition of the Caster. Now do not
quarrel about the spelling of the word, for we !
have looked into both the W's, and are sure
that er is right and not or. We sbobld like
to write Castor but both W's forbid. If
Dickens was right in his estimation of public
houses by this standard, it is, we think, a
good oDe to apply to private tables, and it is
lair to judge a housekeeper by her caster —to
which we may add the salt cellar. Bait, pep-,
per, aud vinegar, are needed at most meals,
aud besides these oil, mustard, catsup, and
other sauces, are more or less used. Let us
take up these things as a matter of order. In
tie first place the salt cellers and the caster
should never be put away until they have
been properly replenished for tbe next meal.
We say never with an emphasisffor nothingis
more annoying than to find that there is no
pepper or vinegar in the cruets, and it is in
just these little things that the housekeeper
showg ber tact. Let m discuss these condi
diluents. In the first place there is salt.
Good salt should have no smell, snd it should
not become moist, no matter how "muggy''
the weather. If salt shows either of these de
fects, try some other brand, or some other
store, and insist upon good salt, r.ot only for
butter but for table use. It is to be* had.
l'epper is the next article of importance.
Outrageous adulterations are practiced in the
grinding of pepper end other spices, yet it is
very inconvenient to do it one's self. De
mand of the retailer that he shall furnish you
a good article, and he will soon find out where
to get it. Most of us who live near cities use
white pepper. The black pepper is soaked
in water until it loses its useless black skin,
und then the grain is ground. It coals a lit
tle more, but it is neater in the caster, and
does not blacken the iood. Of course this is
a refinement which ouly those near large
cities can practice ; but good, straight ahead
black pepper, if it be pure, is good enough.
Vinegar is the condiment next, most in use.
Get good cider vinegar, and it will be the
better the longer it is kept. Cider vinegar
has an aroma, a fragrance, about it that he
longsnot to wine, wh'skey, or any other vin
egar. It is very true that the name vinegar
means sour wine, but give us sour cider in
preference. Sugar, or molasses and water,
and many other things, will make a sour liq
uid which may be called vitiega-, but nothing
can equal that n.ade from apple juice. Oil
many people do not use oil. Do not put it in
tbe castor unless it is good—emphatically
good. To those who use oil there is nothing
more annoying than that of a poor quality.
. Better omit it altogether, tbau to present an
indifferent article. Mustard. There are two
kinds of mustard, so distinct that they should
be called by two different names. The strong,
biting English or American mustard is best ;
known. The powdered mustard is mixed
with cold water, and sometimes a little salt is
added. This is the common mustard upon
our tables. The German and French have a
way of preparing mustard in which much of
its pungency is modified by spices. If any
of our German readers can Riye us a recipe
for this manner of preparing roustarU, we
should be glad, as we believe that no one who
has once tried it would willingly take tbe oth
er kind. Catsup and fauces. Theseare not
considered as necessary in the caster. Cat
sup, if properly made of tomatoes, is too
thick and unmanageable to get through the
narrow neck of a cruet, and it is better to put
it upon tbe table in a separate bottle. The
same with Worcestershire and other sauces
that may be fancied It i 3 a great deal bet
ter to have a common, black bottle for catsup,
from which those who desire it can get some,
than to have an elegant cut-glasa cruet into
which the catsup has been introduced with a
difficulty only to be equaled by that experi
enced by those who attempt to get it out.
WHAT IS JK>ST BY KEEPING CORN.—A cor
respondent ot tbe Davenport, 111., Gazette,
put two hundred measured bushels of corn in
a crib iu November, 1868, which were recent
ly marketed. The corn was kept in a well
protected crib, and was in excellent condition
wLen sold. It was found to have shrank
lorty eight bushels, equal to twenty-four per
<ent. discount from the original amount.
I cere was no unusual exposure to rats, bad
weather, Ac., the corn was first quality, aud
he thmKi the experiment was in all respects
a fair test of the profit and loss of hotting
over.
OCR \\ OOL MAM-I-ACTCRES.— According to
lion. E. B. Bigelow, President of the Nation
al Wool Manufacturers Association the an
nua! value ot the wool manufactures in the
Lotted States, and of those manufactures in
which wool is a component part, is not less
than $175,000,000. Of these goods, more
than four fifths are mada from American
wools. Tbe coarse carpet wools, which are
not grown here at all, the worsted combing
wools, and the fine clothing wools which are
growu by us only in limited quantities, go to
make up the rest.
COFFEE.
The Rev. J. C. Fletcher, late of Brazil—
now Consul to Oporto, gives the following in
formation in a late lecture :
A good cup cf coffee could not be made by
boiling—the best cup goes up in a smell to
the fourth story of tile house—and people
should brown and grind their own coffee.
There is no way for the south and West to
get good coffee except to ask tor the Golden
Rio, or Gold Washed Rio, when they ask for
that, they will get what they want. Coffee
should be browned in a cylinder evenly, and
not bnrned ; it should be ground about like
corn meal, and then one tablespoonful put in
the pot for every cup. One cup of water ttr
every four caps of coffee, is enough. It
should not be boiled ; percolating is the only
Christian way to make coffee. When done,
pour one quarter of a cup ef the decoction
into a cup, and fill up with boiled milk. By
this plan yon will have a drink worthy of the
gods. Water and coffee have no affinity for
each other; boiled milk only should be used.
GKEXSE os CARPET. —There is nothing that
annoys a tidy housekeeper so much as to have
her carpet spotted with lamp oil or grease,
and we therefore make known for their bene
fit the following recipe for extracting oil or
grease spots from carpets or clothes : Cover
the grease spot with whiting, and let it re
main until it becomes saturated with the
grease ; then scrape it off, and cover the spot
with another coat of whiting, and if this
does not remove the grease, repeat the appli
cation. Three coats of whiting will, in most
cases, remove the spot, when it sbould be
brushed off with a clothes-brush.
Is a mow twenty feet wide by thirty feet
long and twenty-five feet deep, 450 feet, of
herds grass, or 350 red top, or 550 clover, is
a ton.

holds as an asset another tract of
Three Millions of Acres in the State of
Kansas,

Sir:—Mrs. Bowser was in much suffering for
some four weeks with Rheumatism, and got some

JACOB BOWSER.
BEDFORD, May 16, 1569. Mr. W. W. Middle
tor: Sir—l procured a bottle of your Liniment
for Rheumatism, and it gives me great pleasure
in Baying that after using it for two days, my

BEDFORD, May 8, 1869. I take great pleasure
in giving my testimony to the value of "Middle

so 6evcre, that during all that time I had not one
night of comfortable sleep. I could not put my
hands to my face, could not comb tny own bair,
nor feed myself; but after having the Pain Cure
applied once, I found relief enough to give me
comfortable sleep, and with Rs steady use, I con
tinued to get better, and now at the end of ten
weeks from its first application, I have compara
tively free use of my hands, sleep well and can
attend to business. It has done me more good
